Representative Hltt , of Illinois , Men
tioned Favorably.
Valentino's Friends Think Ho linn n
Corner on Hint Office Oohllti-oo
Not n Candidate * Tor the
Mexican Mission.
WASHINGTON , D. C. , March 20. )
It will bo remembered that a few days ago
when n senator mentioned to President Harrison
risen that Chauncoy M. Dopow would bo aa
nble representative of tUo United States at
the Court of St. James , the head of the nation ,
according to report , observed that ho would
llko to find n good man for the place In the
west , nud nskcd the senator if ho could sug
gest someone. It was learned to-day by your
correspondent that General Harrison had 'In
mind when ho made this observation the
name of Kobcrt 1C. HIU , representative In
congress from the Sixth district of Illinois ,
which embraces a portion of the city of
Chicago. It need create no surprise if Mr.
Hitt is nominated to the position at any tlmo.
Ho is an intimate personal friend of Mr.
Blnlnc , nnd has been with that gentleman
nnd Mr. William Walter Phelps almost con
tinually durliig the past month. His frionda
have suspected that something was about to
happen In diplomatic circles , seeing this trio
I BO frequently together. Mr. Hltt is fifty flvo
years old and Is a practiced and accomplished
diplomat. Ho began his career in dip
lomacy in the American legation at
Paris and was assistant secretary of state in
18S1 under Mr. Blalno. It is known that ho
would gladly give up his present position in
ho house for a four year's term In the first
diplomatic position o ? this country abroad.
Mr. Hitt's district is safely republican.
There is n strong probability that ex-Con
gressman Valentino will bo nominated for
commlssionor of the general land ofllco. The
fight for this ofllco has been n triangular and
very bitter ono. Ex-Senator Chilrott , of
Colorado ; Governor Stone , of Iowa , and ox-
Representative Calkins , of Indiana , are the
leading aspirants. Chilcott. of Colorado ,
has been in the lend until within a week ,
when n bitter opposition developed against
him , headed by ox-Senator Bowen , of Cole
rado. Ho was backed by the Colorado , Ne
braska and Kansas delegations , whllo the
preferences of Secretary Noble were openly
expressed for Governor Stone , of Iowa , of
whom ho was a warm personal friond. Lateen
on Saturday Mr. Chilcott evinced n dealro to
withdraw in favor of Congrcsaman Valen
tino. It la understood to-day from the
white house that the presentation of Mr.
Valentino's name was immediately accepted
as a solution of the dlfllculty , and that after
a personal Interview with Secretary Noble ,
the feeling was prevalent that his name
would bo first sent in. Mr , Valentino to
night , when Interviewed on this subject , de
clined to respond to any inquiries , but it was
learned at tbo Interior department that
shortly after noon ho paid a visit to the sec
retary ol the interior , in company with the
entire Nebraska delegation and Senator
Plumb , of Kansas , and Senator Teller , of
Colonel Tom Ochiltreo says that ho never
was a candidate for the Mexican mission
and that all reports alleging him to bo so are
canards. Ho adds that ho would very much
HKO the appointment , but it has always been
the rule never to appoint a Texan to an office
in Mexico because of the , friction on the bor
The meeting of the Nebraska delegation
this afternoon to consider the recommenda
tions for appointments was delayed on tbo
receipt of a note from Congressman Laird
that ho would bo present and would partici
pate. Ttio meeting was hold at 4 o'clock in
Senator Mundcrson's committee room. All
the members of tbo committee rofuseato
state the result of its deliberations beyond
the fact that the meeting was entirely har
monious and that several recommendations
were agreed upon. . Another mooting will beheld
held to-morrow , at which Mr. Laird will also
bo present. * *
The alleged "differences" between Senator
Quay and Postmaster General Wanamaker
are only on the surface and do not reach the
heart. There is no doubt that Mr. Wuna-
rnaltcr has tendered the Philadelphia post-
office to his friend , M/ . Field , who is not a
politician , and whoso conduct nt the polls
during the last few years is n matter of some
doubt. It is also true that Mr. Quay lias in
dorsed the application of William U. Leads ,
otherwise known as "Bill Loads , " for the
same ofllco , and has written a strong letter
urging his appointment. While Mr. Quay
tells people that he is going to insist upon
Mr. Leads' appointment , and that' ho docs
not believe the postmaster general will ap
point Mr. Field , ho docs not show any signs
of rage or disappointment , and it is suspected
that ho has indorsed Leads simply for effect.
Nearly every senator who expects to leave
Washington at the end of the present extra
session of the sonata has his personal effects
packed , nnd his wife , if she bo In tha cily ,
has her Saratoga In the hall of the
bouso , strapped ready for the expressman.
It was expected that the senate would ad
journ on Friday , but the death of Justice
Matthews lost the senate two actual days of
work and the inability of the president
to ngrco upon a minister to England makes
It a necessity that the senate shall remain in
session a few days longer , it will probably
adjourn the middle of next week , but may
continue until Frklny of next week. There
nro about u down senators who practically
live in Washington all the year round , and
they will remain horu till tbo hot. torui be
gins , when they will go to their constituents ,
for visit or to the scas'do for recreation ,
Eight or ton members of tbo house ol o have
residences hero and remain in Washington
all tbo-yonr round. The adjournment of the
extra session of the senate does not mean the
abandonment of the occupation of ofllco
recking , neither docs it mean that all
of the ofllca seekers will stay away
from Washington. The work , however ,
w'U ' bo conducted through senators and rep
resentatives from their homes to a largo extent -
tent , After the legislators and the visiting
patriots who desire occupation in the federal
government have departed , the administra
tion will begin to formulate Its policy and
there will bo something more substan
tial for the readers of the daily papers to
feed updn when they look Into the Washing
ton column than tlio eagerness of men who
want work for so much n year , and pay from
tbo coffers of Undo Saui.

LOUISVILLE , March 20. A special from
Pinevillo , Ky. , says hostilities have ceased
for a time between the warring Turner and
Sawder factions in the Yellow Creek neigh
borhood , an d at present there are no Indica
tions of a renewal. No ono lias been killed
for at least thirty-six hours and in
terest in the feud is lagging. At present
General Sawdor is in jail , and Stanford
under indictment for murdering Jack Tur
ner two years ago , and should ho bo released
there are other charges which will be strong
enough to hold" him. In fact , several mur
ders in which no has been connected in ono
way or another have still to bo carried out
The killing of James Burch ended the career
of another leader of the Sowder crowd , and
so fur as that faction IB concerned the war is
at an end unless the Tumors start it again.
Alvln Turner's dguth at the hands of
Hurch deprived the followers of that young
Hotspur of th'oir chief , and the people of Boll
county scorn nt present to think that us soon
as the supply of' ammunition now in the
hands of the Turners , has been burned the
end will have been reached.
Jeff King , who alonii survived the last

friends and foes alike , evidence having been

The Central Warehouse In Chicago
Entirely Destroyed.
CHICAGO , March 20. The Central wnro-
house , Rush nnd North Water streets , took
flro early this morning , nnd with a valuable
store of teas , coffees nnd merchandise was
burned to the ground , entailing an estimated
loss of between $1,030,000 and $1,600,000.
The flro department had a very hard task
but succeeded in preventing the flames from
destroying the great grain elevators nnd
other buildings in the vicinity. Alderman
Mnnicro , manager ot the wnVchouso , grimly
remarked ns ho looked nt the ruins that it
was ntoa party , and that everybody was In
vited. In point of fact , ns the voter from
, wenty engine nozzles soaked down the con-
.cuts of the building , the basement was soon
filled with water , nnd when the 40,000 cases
of tea began to brow , streams of tea pushed
from the windows and doors , The docks , nt
a distance of 100 foot , were Hooded with the
amber-colored liquid that poured llko a
cataract into the river , and the steam arising
from It perfumed the air for blocks nround.
Alderman Manloro is satisfied that the lire
was of Incendiary origin , it being the third
ire in the structure within a year which can
jo accounted for In no other way. The
building was a six-story block , which cost ,
when now , about $50,000. About 00 nor cent
of the value of the contents was tea in bond ,
ns It was a bonded warehouse. Besides ,
there were several packages ol coffco nnd
other miscellaneous articles. The tea was
owned by films in various largo cities , which
makes it extremely dllficult to accurately
estimate the individual losses nnd insurance.
The following losses uro known :
Catherine Bronnson , on building. $50,000 ;
insurance $30,000. W. R. Mnnicro , loss
$30,000 ; Insurance $75,000. Fitch & Howland ,

way is there of finding out when a lawyer
brings n case Into court and produces evi
dence which appears to bo straight , and
when there is notiiing to indicate that it is
not straight and proper ) There is only ono
thing the court can do , and that is to grant a
decree. See how well the tracks were cov
ered in the case just decided. This lawyer
produced the complainant and she gave heu
testimony , and in addition to that there was
tha testimony of two apparently roputnblo
witnesses , Watson nnd Coffee. They swore
directly nnd positively that the defendant
Gordon , lived with a woman nt 2120 Wabaah

him and know the woman , and that the palO
wore put out of the house for their miscon

that it was impossible for the court to do
anything else but grant a decree. There was
ao way of tolling that these witnesses hod ,
been hired to so testify.1

"I know of none. There nro statutes pun
