Ho had any interest in thcao mattora.

of hla assistant , Jo/ilyn , and of
MoOammon , law officer of the de

their opinion in accordance with the
law. Teller went on to aay : "It doea
not , af Senator Hill assumes , glvo the
control of the park to the lessee. Any

every respect M advantageous to

No exclailve privilege IB

hotel and atage stations , aggregating
ten aorei. Others may , If they dealre ,
have the same. Aa to the rulings of
the department in favor of corpora
tions In the matter of land granta
Hill made only a general charge con
cerning a matter which he could
know no more of than the general
public. The rulings have all been
made to conform to the decisions of
the supreme court and the opinions of
the attorney general concerning the
duty of the ozocutivo departments of
the government in that respect Sea-
rotary Teller furthermore remarked
that ho la not authorized to legislate ,
but simply to administer the lawa ,
whether suoh lawa are In accordance
with hla views or not , and that Sena

are hla views on this subject from the

SKNATOE I1ILL
loft Washington thU evening for Col
orado. Before his departure ho was
asked if he had anything further to
say at present with reference to his
controversy with the secretary of the
Interior. He replied , "Every state
ment contained in my loiter ia strictly
\ truo. Teller will naturally seek to
break its force by a general denial ,
but upon some points ho will have to
face evidence. Efforts to make a
diversion by an indirect charge ( on
the alleged authority of "friends oi
Secretary Teller" ) thnt I bought my
scat in the senate la unworthy of
notice and haa no foundation to sol
npon. If it had been ao it would
have been used against mo long ago.
The truth la neither Senator Callcotl
nor any responsible person hat
pressed me to with such
charges. The nearest approach tc
It was contained in a card fron
Ki-Sanator Ghaffee , in which he sale
that my election had , according to inj
own statements , coat ma $28,000
This statement was so' vague that ' .
never deemed It worthy of notice
ainco Chaffao might have referred t <
legitimate contributions made by m
to my party in the stato. Whateve
charges I have made against Toiler
have been made over my own slgna
tnre. If he will adopt a like conn
and be responsible for the statement
that I furnished , used or caused to b
mod money In any corrupt or illegit
Imate manner connected with my elec
tlon to the senate , I will afford him e
the earliest possible day an opportt
nity to prove the charge. "

1HE RULES AND UEOULATIONH.
WASHINGTON , May 2. A speoli
meeting of the cabinet was held t <
day to consider the civil service regt
latlons now awaiting the president
action. All members were preset
except the attorney general. Tha ae
slon lasted two and a half hours an
the regulations as presented by tl
civil service commission were agree
to without substantial change , a
though it was deemed advisable '
change the mode of expression of ce
tain rules. There waa ono questlc
which the cabinet found it difficult I
decide. The custom which Is no
observed in making appointments !
several executive departments at
which in the treasury has tt
force of law , is to dlatiibnto the
among the states and terrltorl
npon the basis of popalatio
It is a question whether strict tu
heronoo to this rule would not
many cases hamper the admtnistr ,
tlon of civil service , and the majorl
of the members of the cabinet are 1
ollne to the view that appolntmor
under the new civil service rnl
should be made strictly upon merit
determined by competitive examlc
tlons regardless of the residence
the successful candidates. Declilc
however , has not yet been reached
the cabinet upon this point.
Eaton , olvll service commlssloni

tion that the hosiery manufacturers of
Germany are moving to secure the
abolition of the prohibitory legislation
against pork. They nro alarmed lest
action bo taken by the next United
States congress Imposing a duty on
ho.slory , which will exclude it from the

if the moaanro passed oongrns ? , thous
ands of oporntlvts of Germany , with
out other moans of gaining a liveli
hood , would bo thrown out of work
and millions of dollars worth of capital
bo wasted. Of $7,500 000 worth of

LONDON , May. 2. The Times pub
lishes a special from Berlin which un
dertakes to explain the mlannder-
standlng , or misrepresentation on the
part of the North German Gtzetto In
respect to the repnbllcatlon In a Now
York paper of Minister Sargent's re
port to Secretary Frellnghnysen npon
the pork question. The point of the
spoclr.I correspondent's explanation Is ,
that vhat was published day before
yesterday by the North German Ga
rotte was In reality the report of Sar
gent to the state department. It was
printed In order to show that the
North Gorman Gazette's late personal
attack , which Sargent would have
been justly entitled to con
sider a gross Infringement of a
newspaper npon his privileges as
aforolgn | ambassador was based npon
the incorrect translation by the New
York Handel's Zeltnng , ot Sargent's
report. The North Gorman Gazette ,
in roprodnclng the report , prefaces it
by a paragraph , which The Times cor
respondent characterizes as a qnerk
and traneparouf attempt upon the
part of the management to oxouso
tholr unwarrantable attack. This Is
the only excuse voucheafed by the
Berlin papers , and it Is the general
opinion hero that , whllo the apology
is humble enough , It may be regarded
nevertheless' as entirely Inadequate ,
since it convicts The North German
Gizetto of gross misrepresentation of
the trnth.
