WASHINGTON , July 2. Owen Kellar who
ft A3 crotifiod by the civil service commiusion
for appointment to a clerkship In the Erst
auditor' * oQico but wna rejected by First Aud
itor Chonowcth on the ground that ho was a
republican and was distasteful to Congress
man Warner and ether democrat ! In his
neighborhood , was this morning appointed by
Secretary Manning to the place for which ho
was certified , Keller yesterday brought tbo
Jan's ' In the ciao to thojittcntton of the civil ser
vice commission by which they were last
evening laid before tha president , The com
missioners said the refusal to appoint Kellar
appeared to bo a violation of rule eight which
forbids any discrimination by the ap
pointing officer on political grounds and
they furthsr represented that the
reception of the recommendations
by the auditor from Congressman Warner ,
that Keller bo not appointed , appealed to bo
in plain violation of the tenth section of the
civil Boovlco act , which ays that no recom
mendations shall bo received frrm any mem
ber of the house of representatives except as
to the character of tbo applicant , by any par
son concerned in making any examination or
appointment under tha act. Under this pro
vision the commissioners held that the auditor
had no right to recalvo any euch recomi lend-
ntion from a member ot congress. Karly this
morning as the commission was further consid
ering the subject with a view of its moro
formal present tion to the president , the fol-
lowlof * letter was received from tha secretary
of the treasury :
TnEAsnnv DErAimiENT , 1
WASHINGTON , July 2 , 1835. To tha Elon.
Dorrrmn B. ICaton , united Statesdvil _ service
commission , Sir : I was not until last night
fully informed of the circumstances connected
with the Kellar olfalr. If you have Mr. Kel -
lar's address will you kindly advhn him to
report to me this morning for duty. I Intend
that this department shall strictly obey the
law. Respectfully yours ,
Mr. Kelhr , who eat in Commissioner
Eaton's olHoo when the secretary's letter was
received , went at once to the treasury depart
ment and was immediately appointed and net
at work.
Messrs , J. B , Moorp. Delaware ; J. Wilson
Bayard , Pennsylvania , and Julian Taylor ,
Virginia , have been appointed to clerkships
in the department of stato. Tlieao gentlemen
passed civil service examinations satisfactori
ly , standing at the head of the list ever thirty
applicants , Mr , Bayard i a distant relative
of Secretary Bayard , but was not known by
that gentleman until after he had passed the
examination. He is a recent graduate of
Princeton and stood first in the examination
of applicants for the state department vacan
cies , Mr , Taylor has been professor of Ian
guagea in the university of Virginia ,
It is understood that Mr. Keiley , recently
appointed United States minister to Austria ,
whom appointment has occasioned cDnsidora-
ble comment , will not bo recalled. Ho will
go to Vienna and should the Austrian gov
eminent refuse to receive him it is
Intimated that the United States gov
ernment will remain unrepresented
at Vienna. It is held that Kelley is a capa
ble man and in every way fitted tu fill the po
sition to which ha hag bjen assigned. When
he was appointed United States minister to
Italy he was endorsed by the entire congres
sional delegation of Virginia and
was confirmed by the senate. The
Italian government asked whether or
not Kelley had given utterance in
a public speech in 1871 to sentiments in oppo
sition to tbo occupation of Homo by Victor
Emanual. The former government nftor-
wardi , it Is said , protested against his np-
and Keiley resigned his commission ,
t is held that the Austrian government hu
no grounds to complain of Kolloy.
Some weeks ago the postmaster general ia
sued an order requiring postmasters whose
bonds were executed five or more years ago
to renew them , and to-day 4,201 blank farms
of bonds wore sent out by the bond division ,
in answer to requests ) of postmasters.
The Hon. George S. Boutwell , counsel fo
Ilayti , has filed proper writs with the secretary
tary of state in the nature of a protest agins
the payment by Ilayti of the 837,000 recently
awaided by the arbitrator , the lion. William
Strong , to Antonio Pellitior. Gov. Boutwal
quotes from tha decision of the arbitrate
sundry extracts which show that counclusion
reached wore :
1 That Pellitier was guilty of fittm
the Ibark William at Mobllo in thi
autumn of 18G4 for a slave trading expedition
In violation of the laws of the United States.
2 That ho prosecuted that undertaking
among the islands of the Carribean tea untif
bis arrest at Fort Liberto in April , 1871.
3 Th.t ho was tiled by the judicial author
Itloa of Ilayti and by duo process of law , ac-
corning to the imlitutions of that country ,
upon a charge of an attempt at piracy ntr
slave trading upon the coast of Ilayti.
I That by the Jaws of nations the authori
ties of Haytl hadjurisdictlon of the per
son of 1'ollitor.
It submits Hie nugpostion that the govern
inent of the United dtatos ought not to proceed
coed further in the prosecution of this claim
lie asks whether the United States woul
content to the payment of a penalty for
judicial error In a case whore the claiman
was guilty of n crime for which he Biiffere
punUhmpnt , and whether the United State
can afford to establish ft precedent which ina-
becouio a rule of international lai
that governments uro responsible to othe :
governments for judicial errors that the com'
may commit In cases alfccting fortunes i r
rights of aliens engaged In criminal enter
prises. Ho Bays the invitation extended bj
this government to Ilayti to eubmit this claim
to arbitration was busfd upon the theory tha'
Polletitr was eogtged In a lawful undorlakiti
at the tlmo of liia arrest , which theory th
opinion of the arbitrator absolutely destroy !
In conclusion he says ; "In the presence o
tbega facts It would teem Inconsistent
with the legislation of the country for man e
than throe-fourths of a century , and with th °
known opinions of the people for the executlv
branch of the government of the Unite
States to accept money from another govern
ment at compensation for a judicial errp r
In a cite whore the patty claimant was , a
fact , uilty of a most heinous crime. "

The following appointments were made by

the navy department has made a preliminary
report. Ha recommended an entire change ;
of system. He favors ; tha adoption of the
lyiteio uied la the English navy department.
Calhotin says that under the present methods
in the navy department each bnreau keeps
Its own set of books ; that there is no unifor
mity among the bureaus and that
it is extremely dllTicult to get any Information
about any special item of expenditure. Ho
cites matters concerning which it would ro-
qulro days , weeks or months to elicit the
lactt , such oa the sums already spent on cer
tain cruisers , and how the accounts of this or
that contractor stands , The report adds :
"At present there is no intelligent
system of accounts in existence At the navy
department and no responsibility anywhere
for tha book-keeping done in the department ,
I recommend the total abolition of the sys
tem , In plaso of the present system , or
rather want of system , I propose
the establishment of a system of
account * , which shall keep a detailed account
of every receipt and the disbursement of
money pertaining to the navy department ,

The South American commission under
date of Santiago , May 14th , have made a re
port to tharccrtttry of statoof the result of
their visit to Chili , Tbo rcpoit Bays that
Valparaiso la almost nn Kngllih colony. The
English language in used almost exiliuively
in trade nnd the lending merchants are sub
jects of Great Britian , there being but three
distinctively Ameiicau hou'ca in the place ,
The omouut of goods imported from the
United States Is very small beyond what are
bought by those firms , The great obstacle ) ] to
nn extention of this trade Is the
disposition of Englishmen to trade at home
and tbclr ability to do so on account of tbo
high freights between Now York and Valparaiso
raise , which are usually dcublo the cost of
transportation between Valparaiso nnd Lon
don or Hamburg. In fhort no goods are im
ported from the Unl ed States except when
they cannot bo obtained elsewhere , and then
it is found much cheaper to ship them to
Chill from Now York via Hamburg or Liver
pool , At the meeting of the president of Chili
by the commission a serial of propositions
were submitted to him looking to an increase
of trade between Chill and the United States.
President Santa Maria very frankly , and
somewhat bluntly , said his people were at
liberty to sell where they could got the best
prices nnd buy.whera goods were tha cheapest ,
lu hla opinion commerce was not
aided bv commercial treaties. However
ho heartily endorsed ono proposition the ro-
ostablisbment nf a common silver coin of the
value of the United States gold dolhr , to bo
coined by oich of the American republic ? , of
an equal degree of fineness , and to an amrunt
which should bn agreed , to bo legal tender in

N w YODK. July 2 , Amonc the capitalists
nnd business men In this city who who had
hoped that the administration would Infuse a
vigoioua reform element Into the Union
Pacific directory , the appointment of
government directors , made Tues
day , were not received with satisfac
tion , The opinion pro failed tha
the proiiJont had simply contented
himself with delecting men of respectability
without regard for the effect of their selection
unon the affairs of this country. Ono active
Wall street man , who is very familiar with
the affairs of that company , said that
tbo now government directors did
not appear to him to bo the kind
of men they needed to cope with the phrowd
men who bad sn long controlled the
Union Pacific. The government directors
ought to be comparatively young active and
smart enough to comprehend the situation nnd
keep track of what is balng done. Ex-Senator
Francis Kernnn is acknowledged to bo an
eminently respectable nnd honest man ,
Ho Is well advanced in years , however ,
nnd not . equipped either by physical
vigor , or railroad experience , for n steady
contest with the Gould element in the Union
Pacifio directory. Gen. E. P. Alexander ,
whoio appointment Ia credited to Georgia ,
was formerly vice-president of the Loulsvlllo
& Nashville road and was also connected with
the Georgia Central road , Ho has the repu
tation of being a very good railway man , but
ho Is said to bo too good
natured to bo a debtor. Ho is not the kind
of a man to lead in reform measures , which
requires activity and stubbornness , Of Frank
lin McVeagb , but little is known except that
ha is n brother of Wayne McVengh and a
wholesale grocer in Chicago , and established
himself in the business which he has success
fully followed ever since up to the last presi
dent campaign , Mr. McVoagh was a very ar
dent republican , but became a warm supporter
of Cleveland for the presidency. Mr. McVeigh
ha ? always been regarded in Chicago as a
exceedingly level bended man of business
and his uamo if assoiated with mast of
Chicago's enterprises. Ho is peisonally
papular , is bright , a good talker and
thoroughly posted on national questions.
Prominent railroad men expressed sur
prise that Cleveland should have selected
any man from Ohio other than Edgar M ,
John son , the law partner of Governor Hoadly ,
who warmly advocated bid appointment.

ately steady and the tone In the afternoon
was somewhat stronger , the market closing
for the day about ic under yesterday. Tha
crop news received is generally of a gloomy
turn , the harvesting reports from Kentucky ,
Tennessee , Missouri and Kansas indicating
that the prospects of the yield are no brighter
than reported early In the month. It is
also stated that the returns from
Minnesota nnd Visc tl in indicated on
July 1st that the spring yield would not ex
ceed 85 per cent of that of l st year. The
amount of wheat on passage was reported to
have increased 1,0(0,000 bushels , and the re
port wan also circulated that seventy-two car
goes of Russian wheat had passed the Dar
danelles , which provoked the early weakness.
The receipts have continued fully up to the
uiual average and the shipments are light.
There was a strong demand existing for cash
corn , and this competition caused an advance ,
but prices fell elf with wheat and closed a
ehade under yesterday. The largo freight
engagement of yesterday and the engage
ment of SCO OOJ bushels of frticht room to day
kept the market firm , however ,
The speculative market for oats ruled
weaker , July declining ifc ; rallied a trifle and
closed steady ,
There was n very weak and unsettled feel
ing in provisions. Moss pork declined 23@
303 early , rallied 5@10c and closed moderate
ly steady. Lard declined 5@10c ,
The day's range of pricoi was :

On the afteinoon board wheat was firmer
and Ic higher ; corn and oats steady and un <
changed ; pork 2&5s & higher , and lard un
changed ,
The receipts are largely on the in
crease , especially in Texans and
grassy native stock. Among the fresh
arrivals to day were about 3,000 Texans ,
twenty cars of glucose , and ten or eleven cars
of B till era. The market was dull and slow
from tha start to the finish , and prices a strong

stock now arriving , and values have dropped

citemont was occasioned hera this morning b
the capture of a will mat named Samue
Melvln , of Kentucky , who became sudden !
ferocious and at a place on Greeneburgh strce
held nt bay all farm wagons that were comin
into town. Ho had n long bowlo bnifo nn
threatened to kill all who attompte
to pass. Some twenty-five wagons wer
stopped by the desperate man. He nttacke
Tony Gasper's waeon nnd turned the horse
nnd wagon ever , nearly killing the herat ' *
Ho then attacked Gasper with his gleamin
knife , inflicting wounds upon him , but no
seriously injuring him , 3''or three hour.3 b
held scores of people in the natrow lane am
in the most vicious manner yelled and at
tacked every one near him. Ho is a powerfully
fully- built man nnd no one felt like tackling
him. Finally I.on King , Andy Muster
and Tom McAdams closed In on
him , and a desperate struggle ensued. For a
time it seemed that the desperate man would
kill thorn all , but ho waa brought to the
ground by a powerful blow by Andy Mueser.
They tied him with a rope and carried him
a-vny In a spring wagon , Fully 600 persons
witnessed the exciting scene.

It became tha oulclal duty yesterday
afternoon of Judge Barndes to.ring the
curtain down on the conclusion of quito .
an intcrettlng and somewhat ecnaatioiml
llttlo drama. It was a drama in two acts
and four pcencs , but utterly devoid of all 1
orchestral , red light or stage thunder ac
companiments , It was a drama of real I
life , and depleted two very distinct , well-
drawn characters. The first two ecenes
are laid In Dos Moincc , Iowa , and the
last two in Omaha. Briefly statad , the
plot , the story and the action are told 0i 0a
follows : Trfo yoats ago Perry Johnson
and Mary Irby , both then living at Dos
Molnos , mot and boomo acquainted with
each other. This acquaintance soon
grow Into warm friendship nnd the '
friendship Into rod-hot love , Bat , ' as will 1
bo seen further along , this1 love , espe
cially on Perry's part , was not of that
pure , holy and sacred character which
tends to elevate , enlighten
and refine , and Mary's love
was of entirely too confiding a nature.
The result vras they loved unwisely and
far too well. Criminal iiltimicjr followed
and , after having cocured the girl's ' vruin ,
Potry suddenly , unexpectedly , and with
out letting it bo generally known , packed
his baggage , deserted his duped victim I ,
and caina to Omaha. There the curtain
went downou ( a scene of agony. Bat
M ry Irby was not a girl to be thrown off.
in that manner. She determined to
make It warm for that young man unless
ho made her his wife , therefore two days
ago ebo arrived In Ocqahaalso. Yesterday
the had Perry Johnson arrested on a
charge of bastardy and arraigned , befpre
Juttlca Barndvs to glvo an account of hla
conduct. Ralhor , liowever , than h vo
aqy further ( .trouble iho relented and
agreed to do the handsome by making
Mary his wife. Soon as the necessary
papers could bo procured Judge Barndes
performed the ceremony and tbo 'young
counJo went away apparently happy with
each. *

Howland , who arrived last night from the
San Bernardino ranch , gives the following ac- J :
count of the fight previously reported bet ween ; '
the whites and Indians at Onuto. Capt. :
Crawford , with the main body of troops and t
scouts , went directly towards the Torria j
mountains , while Lieutenant Davis' command ,
passed around the eait end of the mountains , ] ,
ilanking the Indians. Davis surprised their 'jj
camp , comprising seventeen bucks and four
teen women and children. In the attack two
bucks were killed and one wounded. The
Indian women and children and the wounded
were made prisoners. Tha fourteen remaln-i
ing backs escaped. Lieutenant Davis sent
Lieutenant Henry with a detail of six men In
charge of the prisoners and three mutinous
Indian scouts to San Bardlno ranch ,
At the Bamo tlmo ho sent a cpurrier to Fort
Dowio asking Crook for reinforcements to
meet Hanna at San Bernardino to reltovo
him. When Howland loft San Bernardino

though on the wny clx days. Lieut. McGrew ,
who had been dUpat. bed as a relief to Hanna ,
arrived at the ranch Monday. Scouts have
been sunt out from McGrow'n command to ob
