A \Vlsconnlir of IMibtlu Opinion A Solicino to llrnnd Deserters Krom the Army Capital News. The rrpulclont Hots liven. WASHINGTON , Dec. 4. [ Special Telegram to the Hir.l : It Isnot gcneially known tli.vt the appointment of Clmtlos B. Mot ton , of Augusta , Me. , Is a personal tliuist by Presi dent Cleveland nt .Mr lilnlno. About one jear ago sex-eial pionilncnt demounts of the state came to Washington and timed the president to clvo Colonel Morton an olllee. The foi iner said he would Icaxo the colonel to make n selection. The olllco oC commis sioner of naxlgatloti wns tint chosen , but on second thought ho catno to the conclusion that the Augusta postmastei'shlp was a some what belter place , so the picsldent Intimated that ho would consider the matter. Mi. lilnlno protested npalnst thisuppointiuent , as ho said that .Morton had been gulltj of pub lishing Hindus against him nnd xvas mincu\oi Ixvnj stilling his paper , the New ARC , with ,11 , sorts of abuse which weie unlit lei pnbll- ation. Mr. lilnlno then went personally to he president in regard to the mutter and ft'ns assured by the lattei that IIP w oitld make Invesllgntlon. Then the dlllloully oxer ho continuation ot the two colleotois of in- ernni lexcnuc eamo up. They weie both Maine men and had said some very haul hlngs about Mr. Blnlne. The senator called at the w hlto house while the niattei was hnng- ng lire and intimated to the president that if Morton xras not appointed postmaster - master of AuKtistn Pillsbuiy and Jlmso would bu conlirmcd. Mi. Cleveland consented to this airangeiuent iind forthwith nominated a Mi. Fowler foi .ho Augusta postiimstcrshlp. Then the con- Urination of the two intrinal texcnuc col- eetoH xvns called np , and the lesuli was that .hoy were rejected. Senators Halo and Fric spoke against them and denounced both In .tronp . language. This alleged beliajal of contldence on the pait of Senator Halo niudo the president \ery angry , anil ho bethought ilmself howto net exen. Day before yostor- ; lay , while his friend , Hon. William Homy ClHTord , of Portland , was here , ho couceixed a brlllUut idea of hoxv to ictmii the com- pllment to Senator Hale. Jarx is Patten , ol Bath , Me. , was commissioner of navigation and a peisonal friend ot Mi. Blaine , who , the president thoucht , was at the buttoip ol the xvliole deal. Captain Patten's resignation was requested , and Colonel Morton given the position. The president thinks ho has done no more than right In the matter , and sajs ho did It because Mr. Dlaine betrayed his confluence. Tlieic were txvo candidates foi tliocoiiimlssioneishlp , both of whom wcio very obnoxious to Mr. Blaine peisonally. Tim most distasteful xvas selected. Senntoi Halo denounces the action of Mi.Clcv eland , and says a promise xvas given not to nominate Morton lor tiny olllco at nil. Friends ot Mr. Ulaino say that Morton shall ncx er bo con firmed , and several senators , xvho ha\e his record , state that thcv do not bee hoxv he can get thiough. Republican nolitlcians say that it Is a peisonal thrust toxvard Mr. Bhune and there was no ether motive foi tlio aj > - Dolutiuont , and that Mr. Cloxeland xvas thu one who bctrn > ed the tiubt that was imposed iu him by Mr. lllainc.
