A very lively funeral scandal and piofnna-

HO and : : o , passed the night watching oxer bis
corpse. To keep their courage up they un
corked sexcinl bottles of old cognac , which
had such an u\hllniating flcct upon them
that they picked up the body and threw It on
their mother , xxho xxas liingdoxxn at the

Ho had scarcely left the chamber when the
txxo sons opened another bottle and , drinkIng -
Ing to their fathci'H health , tried lo force

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.
