NO MORSELS FOR MUGWUMPS. Politicians Already Figuring On a BuuccsHor to Justice Wood A Largely Attended Presi dential Hecoptloti , Troulilo In the OITlclal Household. WASHINGTON , May 13. [ Special Telegram to the Br.K.I It Is said there Is a bran now rupture between the president nnd his secre tary of war. Mi. Endicott Thu cause ot the trouble , It Is alleged , is on account of the sec- rctiry of war having opposed some of the president's recent appointments , who were too democratic to suit thn secretary. En- dlcott wanted the president to throw an occa sional morsel to the hungry mugwumps , but the president refused , because he is now working tor democratic delegates. It Is re ported that thu president has told Endicott that ho could leave the cabinet it the admin istration's policy did not suit him , but , to use the language of Colonel Ltmoiit , "Eiidlcott docs not know how to take n hint , " Those OhnoxlotiH Itulea , WASHINGTON , May 13. [ Special Telegram to the BII : : . | Practlctlly speaking , there has been no olllclal denial of thu assertion that the recently promulgated rules ot the civil Bei vice commission are Intended to place a weapon In the hands of heads of depart ments with which to wood out republican emplo > es. The absence of n denial has raised the trepidation among the old clerks to n pitch most painful. This evening's .Star , n conservative nowspipur , says editor ially : "The truth Is that thu now regula tions , as amended by definitions which , for the most part , do not define anything In the rules , but add new matter of Importance , are BO muddled and uncertain that they please nobody neither civil service reformers nor spoilsmen , neither actual nor would-bo clerks and promise no Improvement of the public service. This very uncertainty adds to the uneasiness of the clerks by rendering n satisfactory preparation to meet the threat ened danger Impossible , nnd by leaving them oxooscd to tlio risk of a hostile con struction of ambiguous rules , nnd at thu mercy of amendments or dehiiitlons chang ing the meaning of little which seems clear. Tlio public will sympnthl/o with the otforts to prevent unjust promotions , secured by Importunate solicit itions and coercive Influence from the outside and piu- judlce , favoritism or connption on the part ot appointing olllcers. But the now rules beai on their face an Indication that they nro not designed to accomplish this reform , and except lu providing n permanent daily record of practical elltcleiicy have no tendency toward tl.ls orany other good cud , unless It consists , ns nn niithorl/ed contemporary boasts , In frightening cleiks into unaccus tomed activity and Industry by vague and unintelllgnblu threatsofevll. The clerk may , without rules , bu examined nnd tested as to his practical elllclency nnd discharged If In- ellicleut or retained and promoted if eMIclent IT then-is nny foundation for the slander that tlio vast mijorlty of old govern ment emploj es nro Incompetent and unlit to hold olllco , why were they not discharged long ngo for Inefficiency , under the powers then nnd now existing. Thus It will lie seen that democintlc civil scrvico reform has nctcicd down to n 'definition , ' but who Is to iluiinuthe delinltlony " They Can't Watt Till He's Dead. WASIIINOTON , May 13.

The Healing VCHSO ! Seizures. WASIIINOTON , May 111. Inquiry at the de partment of stito regarding the British vessels sel/ed In Behrlngsca last summer , disclosed the tact that no demand had ever been made by the British government for the release of the vessels , nor has any claim for damages caused by the seizures been made upon the government ot the United States. The cor respondence between the two governments on the subject was very limited. It opened with n letter fiom the English government reciting the fact ot the .sel/urcs nnd asking for Information tolativu to the details. This was received In September , and Secretary Bayard Immediately made an examina tion of the matter. It became necessary to secure the record of proceedings before the United States court In Alaska , which had resulted In thu condemnation of the sealers , and It was not until thn following February that this was received nt thedepartmnnt. A c.irelul examination wns then made of the law and of the treaty of cession by which tlio United States bccamo possessed ot Alaska , which resulted in the order for the release of the scl/ed vessels. 'Ihu tact that the sealers had been released was communicated to the British government and that was about all there was of correspondence upon the sub ject. Prince tioopnld Sulky. WASIIINOTON , May 13. [ Special Tele gram to the Bnn.J There Is some talk In diplomatic circles over the failure of Prince Leopold to visit Washington as ho Intended. Those who claim to know the real cause ot the change in the plans assert that the prince felt slighted at the treatment received from the state deprrtmcnt or rather the want of treatment and that ho resented the alleged failure of this government to properly rccog- nl/o htm by giving Washington the cold shoulder. The trouble seems to be thnt the voting man expected a formal Invitation to visit Washington upon announcing his In tention to travel this way , and failing to re ceive this , he changed his plans nnd will leave for Europe without viewing the beau ties of the capital. It is said hero that ho carried his entment so far ns to charter n steamer to take his party to West Point yes terday so as to prevent the United Stntes from extending him thu courtesy ot a man- ot-vvnr for the trip.

A CHANCE TO VIEW ROYALTY Staring at the Queen the Amusement For Londoners To-Day PREPARING FOR THE EVENT.

[ CY > j > ; /i njlil 1W b\i \ Mints Oitnl > n Ilcnnttt. ] LONDON , May 14,1 a. in. [ Now York Her ald Cable-Special to the BKK.I 1 have just returned from an eight miles'drive over the route which the queen to-morrow afternoon will be driven for her first avowed appearance In a public exhibition during many , many years. For somohours "staring at the queen" will bo the amusement for at least 2,000,000 of her subjects , who know her only by the photos of her seclusion. For a long time mst the cabinet ministers of either party have bogged her for the sake ot trade and political Iran- qulllty to again appear publicly. At last they triumph. THE I1OYAI. IIOUTE. The length of the route for to-morrow's royal show can but be described by likening It to one reaching from High bridge to the Uattery. As 1 drove along I found thou- bandsof workman decorating with shields , banners , flags and mottos the buildings and lamp posts. From Lord Randolph's I'ad- dlneton constituency to the borders of Essex county from the extreme west to the ex treme east the line of the route Is do mocrat Ically chosen , but protected by thousands ot ' police and military. The sidewalks are to bo free , but the lodging house and shopkeepers Mid publicans on the line will charge for house places and win dow seats and a chair from half a crow n to A guinea. I noticed the Stars and Stripes liber ally placed , but of course no wearing of the green. Some of the mottoes are felicitous ; others of the creon grocer stile of loyalty. ' The dear old lady , " said the cabman to me , "ought to bo cheered , for Isn't she golug to make tl.e ha-pcnnles and bobs fly. " KUATUllKS OK TIIK I'UOCHSSIOX. The greatest feature In the procession will bo the volunteers 10,000 in number who from the beginning td the end of thu route will line tlio curbs at a piesent arms , each regiment In different uniform. These wilt foim practically a living wall between the spectators nnd the queen from the moment she quits the railway station until she reaches the people's palace , or as much of it as has been built by the fund provided through a private gift. Theiois some fear of impoliteness when she passes near IJevis Marks , St. Mary Axe , Aldgato Pump and the vvldo shopping sticets beyond because of her alleged unsrraclous silence when thousands of east end shop keepers petitioned her to change the day from Saturday so thov might then have full public custom for wares and a profit for seatb on another day besides. TIIK I'EOt'I.K'd PALACE. As much of the pa lace as is already done consists of n large , finely proportioned hall , decorated with light blue , pink and gold stone color predominating. An Italian cot- feted ceiling presents , in an oval arch , some stained glass which , besides the royal arms monograms and Princeot Wales feathers , depicts the escutcheons of Scotland , Eng laud , Wales , Irelai d , Canada , Australia and the star of India , elvhu an impcrLiI character actor to the general dasUn ot the roof At the back , where meet gallerles'"curvcd into bays and supported by sculpture cary atids , are statues In Uouun carton which (9 ( seen In the sculptures at the Hotel du Villo in Paris , of twenty-threo gioat queens , be ginning with Esther , of blblo fame , and end Ing with Victoria.

Whltu Could was In t ; it rope ho purchased ot n Dutch syndi cate n latyro amount of bonds und stock , of which I took at cost fourteen bonds ot the Denver Pacific , 3Mh ! shares of stock , and 100 reorganization bonds for SIOO.OOO. On the 1st of Jonuary , 18SO , I owned 8,877 shares ot Kansas Pacific stock and 14,700 shares ot Union Pacltlc stock , and besides these , S7W- 000 In Kniisaa Paciilc consolidated bonds , 8181,000 In St. JostphA Piclhc , Sir , UOO in Kansas & NebrasRn , and S'JI.OOJ in Denver ite Uoulder Valloy.

Commissioner Anderson commenced to ( inote "Sufficient unto the day , " when Sago Interrupted with : "Could , 1 think , Is very ranch hko myself. llo attends to his own business. 1 do not know why Could resigned ns director prior to tlio consolidation. I don't question his motives. 1 am not In the habit of guess- ItiB people's motives. If ho resigned be cause of his ptoposed dealings In the mat ter of the consolidation 1 don't know. It inlitht have been a reason. " The minutes of the meeting of directors on that occasion were road , and Sane remem bered that ho moved thu nccept.inco of Gould's resignation.

My im pression is that 1 did not see the answer of Messrs. Humphries and Dodc until tlio con- solldntion meeting , though It Is dated Jan uary li ( and addressed to me with others.1 The examination of Sage was contlnundw 1th reference to the details of the consolidation meeting , of which ho remembered very little. , "though ho made n majority of thu motions.- When asked If Gould did not nsk him , tlio day previous , to move the acceptation of his resignation , witness said : "Could Is not In the nabit of tolling me ot doing anything until It U done. " Concerning Kansas Cen tral securities or the earning capacity of that road , Sage Know \ory little , llo had re mained a director of the Union Pactllc , but not being on the finance committee he did not examine Into the matter catcfullv. bago continued : "i don't know that Could was a creditor on the books of the Kansas Pacific nt the time ot the consolida tion. At the time of the consolidation my Interest in the Kansns Pacihc and Union Pacific were about equal. I believed then and bellovo now. had the consolidation boon with the Missouol Pacific itonld have proved moro advantageous to both roads , andatthosamo time 1 simply jeleldedto the desires ol tlio directois of both roads ngainst my better judgment. The Union 1'aclhe entered as a necessary measure to prevent thn extension of the Chicago , Bur lington & ; Qutncy and Its creation as a for midable opposition line. 1 have wished , in company with Commodore Garrison , to got possession ot thu Kaims Paallic for tlio Missouri Pacihc. but \\lthout my knowledge Gould acquired Commodore Garrison's In terest in oidet to prevent his tormldiblo competitor , the Missouri Pacific , from obtainIng - Ing control of the Kansas Pacific. f , James U.

At the time of thn consolidation ho was in Now York ; did not attend any consolidation meeting ; held no Union Pacific stock at that tune. Washington E. Connor. Jay Gould's part ner , explained thu nature of his business re lations with the Union Pacific ; hid all the books of the hri'is of Washington E. Conner and Washington E. Conner k Co. at Ills sta ble. They were open to the commission and the accountant of the commission might examine them and make abstracts ol Gould's holdings in the various Pacific stocks and bonds. "It would take a short time , " he said , In answer to Commissioner Anderson , "as Gould's dealings are mainly with large amounts of stock purchased from sliult holders , and do not appear on the books ol the company. 1 had no personal Interest In the consolidation. " The commission \\111 probably not examine Jay Gould beloro next Thursday. C.
