B13 FOURTEENTH STIIBET ; , , >
WASHINGTON , D. 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.

The Conversion of thu Newly Caught
German Wnrmly DUoitfiscd ,
Nr.w Yonic , May 21. At to-day's session ot
the Presbyterian general assembly , Hov. Dr.
Nichols , chairman of the committee on homo
missionsread , his report which recommended
that for the ensuing year the sum of ? S75-
000 bo authorized for the use of homo mis
sions. This largo amount is considered
necessary because of ( ho rapid rate at which
the western nnd northwestern portions of
this country nro being settled nnd for work
among tlio white and black population of the
south , The Woman's Homo Mission , un
aided nnd nlonc , raised (201,000 during the
year.
year.When
When the nfternoon session opened Hov.
Dr. Hnmtln , of Washington , spoke nnd dis
approved of using foreign langunires In
; tiurch work , nnd thought the use of Gor-
nan should not bo continued beyond the first
cncralion.
Hov. Dr. Ambrose C. Smith , of Illinois ,
ivantcd to know just how many first genera-
Ions there ware. "You have first genera-
Ions of Germans nnd other nationalities
: oming hero lo-dny , and Ihis will probably
: ontinuo for years to icomo. Wo want to
jvangollzo und Amoricanlza the Europeans
irrivmg In this country. The only means
ivo have to do this Is through the graduates
f the two schools sustained by this nsscm
ily , who can preach lo their countrymen In
ho Gorman tongue. "
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.
It was agreed to add another secretary to
ho force of thu board of homo missions , and
it was decided ho must bo ublo to preach in
erman.
The report of the standing committee of
lie board of aid for colleges was presented
iy Hov. Dr. Thos. S. Hasllngs. One-third
f the Presbyterian churches had made donn-
lons. Dr. Hastings snid the board of aid
ivould require ? 1PO,000 or $200,000. The re
port recommended that the bihlo bo adopted
as the only tcitod ii inysth ol endowed
by the board of aid ; tnat special attention bo
paid to the establishment of n Presbyterian
academy midway between a common school
nnd n college. The report nnd rccommcnda-
'ions were unanimously adopted.
The Southern I'rdsbytnriuns.
CHATTANOOGA , Tenn , , May 21. In the
Southern Presbyterian general assembly to
day Iho committee lo whom was referred iho
consideralion of Iho report of Iho commllteo
on conference with the northern church re
commended the adoption of Iho report as n
whole. The report was adopted.
After this decision , the Charleslon presby-
lory passed a resolution forbidding all publio
contending against the decision of Iho as
sembly. The synod of South Carolina de
clared this action unwise. Irregular and un
constitutional. This precipitated a fight In
the general assembly. 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.
Finally an allotment was agreed upon and
speeches were made pro and con.
The Cumberland Assembly.
KANSAS CmMo. . , May 21. At to-day's
session of the Cumberland Presbyterian
general assembly , the overture of two Illi
nois Presbyterian churches asking for the
formation of n now synod was denied. The
report on missions as adopted indorsed the
call of the board of missions for $50,000 dur
ing Ibis year and provided for Iho raising of
this amount by. apportioning it among the
presbyteries. The receipts for tlio past year
show a gain of . \ > uf200 .over those of last
year , while tno""cxpenditures are much
greater leaving a debt of 50,000.
The Lutheran Synod.
CHICAGO , Mav 21. At to-day's session of
the Illinois district of the Missouri synod of
the Evangelical Lutheran church the mem
bers signed a petition to the state legislature ,
asking an amendment of the proposed com
pulsory education law. Thuy are opposed to
Iho bill us it now reads , because it requires
nil the schools to teach the five elementary
brunches iu English.
A DISAPPOINTED AUDIENCE.
They Kxpocted to Sec Kyrlc Bellow
Pelted With I'.oucn ESKS.
CHICAGO , May 21. [ Special Telegram to
THE BEE. ] E'or several days past a rumor
has been current that a number of friends
of Leslie Carter had decided to attend
McVlokor's thoalro , lo-night , on the oc
casion of the appearance of Mrs. James
Brown Potter and Kyrlo Bullew , prepared
to glvo Ihe laller person a very disagreeable
reception , to which , it was hinted , bad eggs
and decayed vegetables would contribute.
Ever Binco Iho exploiting of Mr. Bellow's '
various deeds of gallantry , as set forth In
his deposition and cross-oxamlnaiion in Ihu
Carter case , there has been a strong feeling
of Indignation against the man , which has
been added lo by Iho editoiial comments in
the local papers. Many , thereto ! e , were
heard , to-duy. to openly express the hope
Ihut ho might bo accorded such a rcccptlnn
as rumored.
Nolhlug serious came to pass , however.
Tlio theater was ctowdcd , anil on tlio first
appearance of Bellow and Mrs. Potto1 * on the
stage n very vigorous hiss was given , which
was repealed again u short time afterward.
The actor and actress were bolh very norv-
OUH for some time , and apparently were an-
prehcnsivu of the nniuro of their reception
by thu audience. Beyond the hissing , noth
ing of an unusual nature occurred , nnd many
who wenl to the theater for no other purpose
than to seu thu disgraceful demonstration ,
camouwny disappointed.

ended. It was like lifting a great load off
the shoulders of everybody who has been en

at the same time comprehensive. Both sides
were satisfied , which does not often happen.
In closing his very lenpthv speech , Attorney
Hynes made u powerful , effective nnd affect
ing plea for bis lady client. Ho said that
Carter could take all his money ; Mrs. Car
ter's only demand was ibo vindication of
her honor and the recovery of her darling
boy. Not only her heart , her life , and her
career , but her reason hinged upon the ver
dict. Mrs. Carter cried profusely.
The Jury retired at B\0 : \ , and from Ihut
hour the dignity which pervaded the courl
room was relaxed. The lawyers threw their

0 Tni : BEU.J Arguments In the hiotlon of
ilrs. Harriet Hubbard Ayer , against James
M , Seymour , Allan Lewis Seymour , his son
and the husband of Mrs. Ayor's daughter ,
and the plaintiff's daughter , Mrs. Harriet
Seymour , for an Interlocutory Injunction re
straining the defendants from voting on 403
shtires of stock of the Hcc.imlcr Munufnctur-
ns company , were heard In the common
ileas court yesterday and decision reserved.
Before April U,1687 , Mrs. Ayer was on-
aicd in manufacturing Kccamlor prcpnrn-
ions. 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. "

O'Brien Describes Its Condition Be-
i'oro the IJnncuo Was Formed
LONDON , 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.

[ 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.

been officially advised of the reported hltcn
n the Sainoan conference. Prominent pBl-j
cinls of the department , when approached to

the mutter as , in their view , discussion of

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-
