Ex-Senator Dorsey himself was the authority to the Western Associated Press report er lor the statement that the Postmaster-General exhouorated Dorsey from all complicity iu the Star route a flair, and had promised to write the President a letter declaring that noth ing against Dorsey had been discover ed. It is denied at the Post Office De partment by the best authority that any promise was made or that any such letter was to bo written. It can be stated that the President, since the threats of the alleged Star route ring to attack him, has reitera ted his determination to go to the bot tom of the matter. The Republican caucus committee are working to perfect the programme to govern the executive sessions that will receive the unanimous support of the republicans and prevent Ihe tak ing up of any nominations or ques tions calculated to cause auy division on that side. It is likely that the plan will be to let the committee have control of all executive business, and not take up any except what t he com mittee commands. While Conkling may object to such an arrangement, it is claimed that the majority of the caucus will not vote for it. Senator Sherman opposes the con firmation ol Sheldon as Governor of New Mexico. Sheldon apparently has a majority to support him. ilis friends insist on confirming him at once. 3 JPcr Cents to be I'uitl Wednesday. "Washington, April 30.

The steamers, Butte, Black Hills and Nellie Peck, cannot be launched until there is another rise in the river as a wido sand bar has formed along the river front where they were left by the recent flood. Who Owns Deadwnod. Chicago, April 30. The Inter Ocean's Washington special says the question of who owns Deadwood is under consideration. Placer claim ant, through their attorney, hold that the site upou which it was locat ed is placer miuing,and hence was not subject, to town site entry. On the other hand the city authorities of Deadwood say their attorney claimed the right to enter it for a town site, except where mineral lands could be proved to exist.
