C. , May 21. ) Blanche 1C. Bruce , at ono time a United Stales senator from Mississippi , and under the late republican administration register of the treasury , ( s to succeed General Roso- crans In hi : old position , unless the present programme Is changed. General Uosecrans , by the operation of an act of the last session of congress , will go on the retired list of the nrmy ns a brigadier general within n few days , and it is stated that ho Is willing to bo relieved from the position as register of the treasury nt that time. Ex-Senator Bruce , who Is n reprosonlatlvo colored man , nnd who has appeared on Iho lecture rostrum throughout the country slnco ho retired , n Htllo over four years ago , in order Ihat General - oral Rosocrans should have a position , came to Washington very soon after President Harrison's ' inauguration , nnd has remained hero almost constantly. About two years ngo ho took up his rcsldcnco in Indianapolis , mid announced that henceforth ho would bo a bona fide resident of Indiana. Whether ho has exercised the right of n citizen in Indiana is not known here , nnd there Is sotno curios ity expressed in Washington ns to whether ho will bo charged , when ho is appointed , lo Indiana or Mississippi. i _ In its white house gossip the Evening Slar " - Bays : "Tlio Iowa delegation has all lls eyes fixed on the position of register of Iho treas ury. II wonts that place for C. E. Foster Somebody may nsk , 'who is O. E. Foster ! " In himself ho is comuurativclv a local per sonage , but as the husband of Mrs. J. Ellen Foster ho assumes the dimensions ot u na tional charncler. Not only is Mr. Foster supported by the Iowa republicans , but he also has the enthusiastic endorsement of the great army of prohibitionists , whoso opposl < tlon to Iho formation of u third party is un compromising. Every republican politician who watched the lasl campaign is willing lo conscdo Mrs. Foster's title to recognition from this administration. From that Juno day. when General Harrison was nominated , until November 0. she worked , nnd talked , nnd preached , and prayed that the prohibi tionists might not throw away their votes or sentiment , but that they should vole with a patty whom she claimed behoved in practical temperance. The position of registrar pays t4,000 , and the duties nro not too urdurous. There is n possibility that the Incumbent , General Hosecrans , may bo permitted to re- main. A number of the general's nld com rades , Irrospcctivo of political beliefs , are urging his relcnllon. " OVnilllU * * WITH APPLICANTS. Mr. Robert P. Porter , iho now superintend ent of the census bureau , is almost overrun with applicants for ofllco. As a matter of fact , no has no olllccs to fill at present. "Thcro are 1,500 clerks nnd assistants to ap point , " ho said to duy , "but I can not appoint them before the fall of 1S90 or 1891. There " uroat present only n few exports to bo ap- polnled , nnd nil of those have already been chosen. The blanks sent cast will not bo re turned for a\ least , u year , und it is not until then Hint woviUbo able to employ the cler ical force. Tlie ro'wcr.o scarcely any appoint ments at the last census before the fall of 1680. A young lady was in ury ofllco nnd tva'ntcd employment. She had worked on Iho last census. " * " 'When were you appointed the last time ? ' I asked. " 'On August 17,1890 , ' she answered. " 'Very well , ' I said , 'spare mo until August 17 , 1800 , and you shall bu appointed. ' There will bo practically no appointments by mo until after Iho fall of IS'JO , nnd Iho Civil service commission may have got hold of the bureau by that time. " TOOK THE OATH OF OFFICE. John R. Lynch , Iho colored man who was appointed fourth auditor of the treasury , nnd charged lo Mississippi , look Iho oath of ofllco to-day anrt will bo given a leave of ab sence for about a month to cnablo him to go to his native stale nnd eloso up his private business preparatory to assuming ills olllclul duties. While In Mississippi ho will attend a republican convention where he expects the question of President Harrison's atti tude toward the south will bo brought up for endorsement. Mr. Lynch was temporary chairman of the national convention ut Chicago cage in 1SS1 , is n fluent speaker , u ready parliamentarian , and it Is moro than likely in view of bis recent recognition at the hands ot the administration , that ho will preside over the convention. Ho very ardently believes that iho policy being exorcised toward Iho south in the distribution of filccs , and the enforcement ' forcement of iho geicrul laws , is the best that could bo done .oward breaking down the lines which have made a north and south , and which have resulted so disastrously lethe the black and whiln republicans of Iho south. KAVXEll'S HEVOLT. Ex-Congressman Huyncr has determined to cut loosu from the Gorman rule of domoc- I ruey In Maryland , and his speech ut Bulti- ' inoro , to-night , is looked upon us iho opening IP 'move in his fight against the Gorman ele ment. Ever since Mr. Hayner's entrance into congress , Mr. Gorman has eyed him askance , fearing In the brilliant young orator tor a dangerous rival. Mr. Kiynor recog nizes that it was Gorman , liaiin and Luna- lian that knifed him and defeated him for re-election last fall , nnd ho Is openly deter mined to pay him all back. Mr. Gorman's term in thu senate expires two years hence , and Mr. Uayncr now proposes to orgnnizo an Independent democracy in Maryland , which will elect a legislature two years hence to defeat and crush Mr. Gorman forox'or and send Mr. Huyncr to thu t > cnatc. Mr. Hayner has brains und practically unbounded wealth , und thu hitler is the almighty lover in Mary land politics. .Mr. Gorman has sought to conciliate Hnyner by tlin offer of thu gov ernorship , but tlio latter declined to listen to any overtures. Hu wants Gorman defeated in Maryland , even If bo must sacrifice Iho party to do it. rEllSONAL. M. A. Woodruff , of Dubuque , la. , Is regis tered at Worniloy's ' , and A. S.

" Dr. Smith thought if the German thc- iloglcnl school nt Dubuque , of which ho Is ( resident , got nn endowment of $100,000 , it could fulfill its mission of educating nnd vnngcllzlng the German population of the northwest for all timo. Some speakers referred to the offecllvo , vork being done by Iho synod of Minnesolu unong Ihe Scandinavians nnd Bohemians.

The committee , to- dny , recommended thai Iho action of the state synod bo approved so far as it declared the action of tno Charleston presbytery unwise. This report was culled nt 2 p. m. for discussion , nnd an hour's exci ted debate followed ns to the limiting of speeches , etc. The assembly during this time much resembled a political convention.

At that time Scyuiour , she alleges , nduced her to form u company for the moro extensive manufacture and sale of proprlo- ary articles. Her recipes were transferred , o the now company , and as n working cnpl- nl to bo used at once she paid Into the com- nny's treasury ? 7,000. For the recipes she received 1,000 shares of the capital stock of the company , each share of the value of $50. But In order to float the stock50OUO , was required , anil this Mrs. Aycr says was procured for her by James M. Seymour and was secured by her by the transfer to him of 103 shares of the stock to bo hold as collat eral , and , us she says , by agreement bo- , wcen herself and the defendant , not to bo used for voting purposes. While she was in Europe In 1888 she afllrms that her daughter's husband and his father consuircd to secure possession of the shares , to destroy her reason and her health , uud to decelvo her daughter In regard to her condition. Both hero and In Stuttgart she says the defendants caused to bo adminis tered to ( her ilnngcrous drugs and endeav ored to persuade her daughter Harriet that she was insane. She also charges that her certificate for 408 shares was cancelled and a new ono made transferring them. Seymour.In his reply , maices u general de nial of the charges. Some of the evidence Introduced by the defense is in the form of loiters , which promise to make this case a cause cclob'-o. Among these letters is ono written by young Margaret Ayer to her sister in New York , while Mrs. Ayer was abroad , in which Margaret says her mother had Just loft for Paris , nnd that she ( Margaret ) Is glad to bo loft alone to resume her studies. She vaguely refers to ix dreadful habit her mother has ( which is presumably the morphine habit ) , ilnds fault with her for "tolling so many lies , " and says in onoplaco : "How I wish our mother was good. It's awful , und the only thing wo can do is to try and make ourselves as much unlike her as we can. I don't think she is pretty , either , for if you ever got all the paint , rouge.whito- wash nnd dye oil , you'd see she is much different - foront than you thought she was. 1 think it was very mean of her to leave papa as soon as ho lost his money. " A , letter to Mrs. Seymour from Miss How ard , who was governess to Margaret , is also introduced. Miss Howard was oven inoro cSustlcC' She says of Mrs. Aycrr " 1 consider .her. , without any moral sense morally in sane. She lies to herself. She is cruel , sel fish and ignoble. 1 have watched these traits for ono month , in which she has not taken ono drop of alcohol. I may bo wrong in my prognostication , but I believe that only death will euro her excesses or her lies. Her low notions are in her bones , fibre ana blood. I am willing to attribute much to the long use of morphine , although 1 confess cause and effect are tangled up. I simply say , from the start she had no prin ciple , no sell1 control , no truth , no pure , no unselfish love. She scut her little daughter for brandy at Houcn , and continually after drank in Her presence. She took Margaret into cafes and gave her cneeso nnd beer , told lies , und bribed her with presents to deceive , etc. But Margaret is far too keen not to finally connect these scattered facts and draw her own conclusions , especially when she saw her mother drink tooth wash and helio trope. " Mrs. Aycr's career in Chicago as n leader In high society , us the wife of the great iron merchant , up to the time of his financial crash , was ono of great magnificence. Her doings as a writer and the manufacturer of various lotions , etc. , Binco leaving Mr. Ayer , are well known to BEE readers. To many of her friends these proceedings are a tremendous deus surprise , and the outcome will bo watched with grqat interest. Seymour's SUlo of tlio Story , NEW YOIIK , May 21. [ Special Telegram to TIIU BEE. ] The strange case of Airs. Harriet Hubbard Ayer , against her daugh ter nnd son-in-law , his father and Miss How ard , was the talk of the city to-dny. She further complicated the case this afternoon by placing in Judge Daly's hands an addi tional affidavit which ilutly denied the sworn statement of James Seymour that ho was given half of the stock of the Hecamicr Cream company for organizing and managing the company. Judge Daly's ' de cision is not expected for some days. Every body connected with the case seemed cool , with the exception of Mrs. Ayer. She would not say any ting about the letters which ate said to have been written by her younger daughter , now with Miss Blanche Willis Howard , at Stuttgart. Seymour was found at the office of the company , in Park Place. He was apparently unconcerned and was going on with his duties as assistant treasurer of the company , "Thoro was a conspiracy , " said ho , "and that was to euro Mrs. Ayer of the alcohol habit. Wo entered into it and persuaded her to go abroad for treatment , but it is absolutely false that I at tempted to norsuudo her to take bromide of lithiu. And her own daughter will sweat that she never loft any papers In a box which , she says. I stoio. The truth is that MrB. Ayer is not responsible for this. She was not responsible for her actions before she started for Kurope , nnd the trustees Had to meet nnd take action about her property. That was the way in which 1 came to bo made thu assistant treas urer of the company. The 4113 shares are in the hands of my daughter , to whom I gave them. Neither I nor my son has re ceived any compensation. Mrs. Ayer was ono of my friends und 1 don't ' want to say anything to hurt her. " Forest City In Anns. LITTLE HOOK , Ark. , May 21.

William O'Hrien testi fied before the Pnrnell commission to-day Ho gave the details of the agrarian out rages which occurred in Tipporary prior t the organization of the league , and said the .caguo prevented wholesale famine and fear ful want iu the west of Ireland in 1370 , nnd that no murders had been com ; mittcd in Tipporary siuco Its formation. O'Brien described the wretched condition of the people iu Ireland prior to the formation of the league. Tuey were in debt up to their necks , ho said , and had absolutely no redress against the exactions of the landlords. The condition of affairs in Mnyo , when Davitt formed the league" there , was appalling. Wholesale famine and bankruotcy seemed Inevitable. The farmers sold everything ut a dead loss , 'ilio landlords did nothing to alleviate the distress. They denied that any distress existed. O'Bricn ' stated that ho approved of boy cotting. Ho believed it prevented crime. Reid , of counsel for the Parnellitcs , read an article from United Ireland , denouncing the Phoenix park murderers and assorting that the assassins , if discovered , would bo moro likely to bo lynched In Dublin than in London. O'Bricn said the anger expressed in the article was undoubtedly genuine. The view of the nationalists was that the government should purouo a policy of conciliation , and thus obtain the people's sympathies with the laws. The government , in 18S2 , sup pressed United Ireland because the witness charged the government , in that paper , with getting up crime , which charge he was per fectly prepared to nrovo. O'Brien attempted to enter into details , but Attorney-General Webster objected , and the objccticn was sustained by the court. milTlSIl STEAMERS COLLIDE. The German Emperor Sunk by the BorcRford.

[ Copi/iW / IBS ) In . .Vein York .tscddtrdl'ian.l DEIII.I.N , May 21 , From certain Indications nt tha rooms of the American delegates , an well (13 at the quarters of the English com missioners nnd at the Gorman foreign office , It Is evident that thcro Is some serious hltcti In the negotiations of the S.imnnu commis sion. Air. Phelps , who Is known as "tho peacemaker , " Is In evident trouble. First ho U Interviewing nn English commissioner In his own rooms , then ho Is hurrying off to Iho foreign oftlcohcro ho remains for seine time closeted with Iho Gorman rep resentatives , nnd then repents the process. When asked ns to tbo situation , Commission ers Phclps , ICasson and Bales says there Is no great change , nnd everything is progressing satisfactorily. Both the German nnd Eng lish commissioners refuse to talk on Iho sub ject , but it is learned from other sources that the United States government has In structed Us commissioners to insist , upon tha return of Malicton as king. A message is said to have been received from Secretary Blaine within the past thir ty-six hours directing the commissioners to Insist upon the restoration nf the status quo , and saying that Germany deposed Mnllotoa as king and must return him ns king. They may hnyglo about indemnity or u unit of dual or tripartllo government if they please , bul Malictoa must bo king. While the Germans have como to nitres with nil the other views of the American commissioners they nro roluclant to accept this condition , and point to the fait that Mulietoa was pardoned by the German emperor - peror nt the beginning of the conference. This , they claim , should satisfy America. It Is thought that the crisis will bo reached nt thu meeting of thu conference to-day. The American commissioners last night weio quiet mid conciliatory in their utlor- nncos concerning the situation , but ex pressed the determination lo remain firm. Lnlor The special correspondent of the Associated press hero was Informed this evening that Germany has finally consented to restore King Mulloloa. This no ion was taken afler prolonged nnd persistent efforts on the part of the American couiinl'slonors. But now comes another hitch In the negotia tions. This frcoh difficulty glows out of the claim for Indemnity made by Gcrmnnv. An other section of Iho conference holds Hint if any Indemnity is paid it must bo a merely nominal sum. Germany , on the contrary , main tains Hint In the conflict between the Ger man forces and the Sntnoaus , the latter were Invariable the nggressors. Besides the un live partisans of King Mnlietoa were guilty of bohciding German sailors as well as In- filcling upon the wounded particular cruel ties. These ncls , Germany insisis , should entail upon Samoa ihu payment of a special indemnity. Earnest efforts are malting m committee to settle the dispute , but the matter - , tor is very likely lo require reference lo a plenary conference. OfllolnlH HctiiBC to Talk. WASHINGTON , May 21. As far ns can bo learned , Ihe department of state has not yec been officially advised of the reported hltcn n the Sainoan conference. Prominent pBl-j cinls of the department , when approached to day , Ilatly declined lo say anything about the mutter as , in their view , discussion of the subject under consideration would violate the diplomatic proprieties. Doubtless the United Stales representatives have broached' the subject of the restoration at Mnliuton , as. their instructions were presumably colored by tin1 debates in the laat congress Inking- tills stand , but just how far they are in structed lo persist In their contention can not be learned.
