D. C. . March 31.1
f. The first net of Corporal Tnnqor on taking
charge of the pension ofllco was to call for
the resignations of nearly all the chiefs of
divisions , and his action In this respect Is not
approved cither by the president or Score-
ary Noble. The latter has issued nn order
forbidding the heads of bureaus to call for
bo resignation of ah ofllcer under them
vlthout the authority of the secretory of the
ntorlor , but Corporal Tanner will not bo
jaslly suppressed. Ho said lust night : "I
am going to bo responsible for the way things
are run In the pension bureau , nnd It Is but
natural that I should want to select my own
men. I have already made selections for the
responsible positions nnd they are waiting
the approval of the secretary. "
Major Marcus A. Hone , formerly of the
Seventh cavalry , who was court martinlcd
, cn years ago for his failure to support
3oneral Ouster at the tltno of the Big -Born
massacre , and who was afterwards cashiered
j from the army for drunkenness nnd conduct
{ unbecoming to nn ofllcer , died nt the Provi-
| donai-uoapital In this city on Saturday night
' -rtfrti cancer on the tongue , caused by oxces-
iivo smoking. An operation was performed
ipon him two weeks ngo by Dr. Hamilton ,
twhen erysipelas set in and caused death.
Major licno has been a clerk in the pension
fijjfllco for some tune , and lutolv figured iu the
courts as an applicant for r. divorce from his
Mrs. Callan , mother of Gcorgo W. Callan ,
the ninotccn-ycar-old Washington boy who
was drowned in the nxvful disaster nt Samoa ,
may die from the shock of the sad nows.
This is ono of the saddest incidents of the
disaster. The meager news In the earlier
editions of yesterday morning's papers
§ throw her into n fever of uncertainty. The
.Jlpslo-wns reported ns sunk , but her friends
Boon told her that the riows was not con
firmed und that tier son was uninjured.
Yesterday afternoon some of the neighbors
took to Mrs. Callan a "copy of the extra
edition of the Critic containing her son's
name In the list of the killed. As soon as
i tha mother's eye rested on the name of her
, son she fainted away nnd remained uncon-
j * s ficlous pearly n half hour. When she be-
I - ' came conscious again she was delirious and
- had to bo restrained by force from lowing
" the houso. She has since been lying
unconscious most of the time , and
- the physicians pronounce her ca o
critical. Mrs. Calati is p. handsome woman ,
younger looking than ono would expect the
mother of. n nearly nineteen year old son to
_ PO. It was but four months .ago that her
, ' J husband , James Nicholas Callan , died , and
, ! T" the widow's whole life seemed wrapped up
in her ton. When the story of the blowing
up of the Nipsic by the Olga was circulated
u few weeks ago , Mrs. Callan was made
very ill by the shock it gave her , and had
not entirely recovered when the equally
dreadful and truer news came yesterday.
i. George Callan was n born sailor. Three
V yours ago ho went on board the training ship.
f Ho shipped on the Nipsic a year iigo ut tbo
fBpcclal request of Captain Mullnn , with
whom ho was a favorite. His father , James
N. Callan , was a well known Washington
lawyer. Ills grandfather was old Dr. Cal
lan , who died about u year ago , and was ono
of the oldest residents of Washington.
It Is not altogether the fault of the admin
istration that democrats are not removed to
make places for republicans. The scnuto is
in the way. A fortnight since the president
removed an offensively partisan postmaster
in Indiana'and nominated n good republican.
The senate committee on postofllccs nnd post
roads refused to report the nomination for
confirmation , for the reason that the grounds
for removal of the present incumbent were
not. In its mind , sufllcient Tbo president
will rcnominato the now ofllccr when the
senate adjourns , nnd ho will take his position -
- tion without confirmation , but when the
meets again thcro will bo another
ruenato between the nominating and confirm-
, - j. ng powers. A few days ago when n well
& known congressman urged the postmaster
ff general to make n removal for the purpose
fc - of giving a republican a placo.thc head ot the
fl C postofllcodopaitment replied : "If you will
' v * take the consequences , 1 will sco that your
request is carried into eflect , I menu that
u that you must see that tha scnuto cdiUlrms
the nomination. " Upon Inquiry the tent -
t pressman came to the conclusion that ho
- would not urge the removal. It is stated
that there nro several republican senators
who nro insisting that democrats who are
/ competent and iioncst shall serve out their
* commissions , and that with thu democrats
, they make a. majority against removals in
I1 any branch of the service. Members of the
, Miouso who nro working to got democrats out
nnd republicans in are contending that the
collators' liuvo adopted this policy for the
: purpose of relieving themselves of the work
incident to the filling of so many odious ut
- this limo.
A politician who complained to the secre
tary of the interior that it was unfair treat-
jnent to not permit the mdorsers of nn ap
plicant to know , till it was too Into , who
would bo appointed to n position , was told
that nino-teiiths of the nominations sent to
the scnuto nowadays were not finally agreed
upon inoro than nn hour or two befoto they
were made out by the executive secretary.
"Tho procedure for reaching conclusions as
\o appointments , " says n senator who has
peon very active In securing appointments
during the past four weeks , "seems to bo
about this : The applications nro all lllud
with the heads of the departments , und by
f them preliminarily examined. Alter the
f necrctary makes up his mind who of the OP-
f plirnntH for a place , comes within thu bounds
< ( of merit , ha certifies them up to the
president , and with the certification sends
' the papers tiled. The president looks over
1 the indorsements and then takes up the
f recommendations of the head of the dopart-
k-j * nicnt. It frequently happens that the prcsl-
t ' dent docs not think It wlso to appoint the
' . „ ' " man bolocted by his cabinet ofllcer , in which
' event the latter is culled to the white house
. $ Y , , nnd the merits of the cases are gene over.
* * Is In line the that Is fol-
A > , It , , same procedure -
* f " lowed by thn civil service commission. Hut
L youcuii icadlly discover why the cabinet
ofllcor cannot from hla ofllco say who will be
appointed or whon. As soon as the presi
dent ngrcot with the cabinet ofllcor that u
man shall bo appointed his name is sent to
the senate , and this Is usually but an hour or
two bolero the nomination Is sent to us. Wo
may complain of it , but wo nave the sumo
principle In operation. Wo hnvo a rule
which requires that two executive sessions
of the senate must bo hold after a nomina
tion Is confirmed before it is announced pub-
, This Is done to give opportunity to
tnovo a reconsideration. The president's
K rule elves him all the opportunities possible
to discover objections to un applicant before
V ) ie is nominated und without delaying uo-
'vtloii. "

THUSO they are disappointed over tbo result

Mit3. HAiiiiisoN's VACATION.
Mrs. Harrison Is slowly recovering from

uisbnnd , attending public meetings nnd en-
crtainlng u houseful of guests from the llrst
lay of the campaign. "But I liked It , not-
vlthstanding the work , " she said to the cor
respondent n few days ago. "I nlwnvo en-
oy the company of happy people , and I never
saw so many smiling faces as during the
campaign. The people scorned glad In their
contemplation of n change of administration. "
Mrs. Harrison overworked herself , however ,
ind soon after the inauguration the reaction
came. A season nt the scashoro nnd a good
vacation during tno summer nnd she will bo

jram to Tin : BEE.J The rejection of Murat
llnlstcad as ambassador to Germany may
lead to unexpected results in the event of n
republican legislature being chosen in Ohio
in November. His friends will demand an
emphatic vindication for him , and with n re
publican legislature will send him to the sen
ate. Botli ITorahcr and Foster will have to
stand aside in his favor. Indeed the work
of vindication will probably be initiated by
placing him at the head of the republican

to Tun BEE.J Excitement Is Intense in ICoya

furnished a .good field for cattle thieves , and
as the reservation protects thorn from the

nefarious business persistently. They have
been aided by certain settlers. In fact n
largo majority of these ronlgadcs make a
showing of being scttlcr.3 , and use it ns a
dlsgulso. Of Into they hnvo become so bold
that vigilant committees wcro u necessity

Several farmers who were suspected of
being accomplices or cattle thtavos hnvo been

deeming prudence the bolter part of valor ,
have journeyed westward , but others failed

men called upon n settler named Gannon ,
broke In tno door of his dugout , bound him

From his ranch they went to the homes of

Ramlo. and pursued the same tactics. Then
they disappeared across the Koya Paha , and
no ono has heard anything of the three men
It is supposed the vigilantes lynched them ,
or turned them over to the Indians nnd half
breeds on the reservation , to a worse fate.
These three men had boon warned in the
usual skull and cross bones style and ns they
have long been under suspicion the verdict
is that they hnvo but received their duscrts.

"Then you will have to take your medi

LONDON , March 81. Further particulars
of the disastrous storm in Apia havojujt
been rocolvcil. The hurricane bujsjaffpou
tlio harbor suddenly. ThoCk Kirman-of-
\var Ebor wa the flrsJf fiSBl to drop her
anchor. She bccnmo unmanageable and was
driven helplessly on o roof which runs
around the harbor. , She struck , broadside
on , at 0 o'clock In the morning. The shock
caused her to lurch and to stopper back , and
she sank In a moment In deep water. Most
of her men were under the hatchets and
scarcely a soul of them escaped.
Tlio Gorman war ship Adler was the next
to succumb. She was lifted bodily by n
gigantic wave and cast on her boatn ends on
the reof. A terrible struggle for life ensued
among the olllcors and sailors aboard. Many
plunged Into the rnglng surf and struck out ,
ijotnc : reaching shore In safety. Others
clung to the rigging until the musts fell. Of
those In the rlirging only two gained the
shore. The captain of tlio Adler and several
other olllcors wcro saved.
In the meantime the United States ship
Nipsio had been drauglng her anchors r.ud
drifting toward the shore. The captain ,
however , managed to keep control and ran
her on a sand bank. Boats were imme
diately lowered and the whole company
wore saved with the except ion of six men.
Those wcro drowned by tlio capsizing of a
The United States ship Vnmlnlia was car
ried before tlio gale right upon the reof. She
struck with u terrible shock , throwing thot
captain against a Gatlinc gun and ho fell ,
stunned. 13olore ho could recover a great
wave swept the dock and washed .him and
others away into the sea. Thd vessel sank
Hitv yards from the Nipsic , mid several of
thoonicers went down with her. Others
perished while making desperate efforts to
swim to the shore. Some of the ship's com
pany tried to suvo themselves by clinging to
the rigging , but heavy and swift running
waves dashed ever them , and one by one
they wcro swept awav.
By this time night had set in. Many na
tives and Europeans had gathered on the
shore , all anxious to render assistance to the
unfortunate crows , but owing to the dark
ness they wore wtio'ly unable to bo of ser
vice.Soon after the Vundalia had sunk the
American war ship Trenton broke from her
anchorage , and was driven upon the wreck
of the Vundaliawhen stio drifted to the
shore. The bottom of the Trenton was com
pletely steve in , and her hold was half full
of water.
As morning dawned the Gorman man-of-
war Olga , which had hitherto withstood the
gale , although much battered by the heavy
seas that constantly broke upon her , became
unmanageable and was driven upon the
beach , where she lay in u tolerably favora
ble position.
Following is a record of the ofllcors and
men lost :

Correspondent Klein's Opinion.
NEW Yoitic , March 81. [ Special Telegram
to THE BEC. ] Referring to the great naval
disaster nt Samoa , John C. Klein" the well
Imowu correspondent recently returned from
that land , said to-night : "It is not difficult to
understand how the vessels were wrecked
when it IB said that none of the men-of-war
in the harbor at Apia kept steam up | unless
occasionally for condensing purposes , or
when expecting to go to sea. There cer
tainly could have been no scarcity of coltl , p.ft
has been suggested as being ono reason why
the vessels could not have got out to sea in
time to avoid the effects of the hurricane
close to thoslibio. Ono hundred and twenty-
six tons of coal were stored on shot o when
I loft Apia , while the Vundalia took down u
largo quantity last February. It usually
took the Nipsic , Olga , Alder and Eber
about three hours , howqvcr , to got up
steam. These vessels together with the
Trenton uud the Vandalia , probably had no
Hres In their boilers when the hurricane
camc > , and having but short notice of Its approach
preach , would bo at the tnorcy of the storms.
The Nipsio was anchored in sixteen fathoms
previous to'my departure from Apia and al
ways kept throe anchors out , but in such
hurricanes ug at times visit Samoa , It is not
likely that half a dozen anchors would have
held her. The harbor atApla Is so small
that with only the Nipsia and tho.tlirco Ger
man ships the vessels wore forcc to lloqulth
close together , some of them lying within 200
yards of the reof. At low tide part of the reef
was entirely bare. With u heavy sea run
ning and having nearly half a mile between
them and the shore it is not sur
prising that so many sailors were
drowned. On ono occasion In January
last I saw the Nipbic's wlmlo bout
filled with officers and men , almost Bivomued
while attempting to reach the ship from
shore. On this occasion there was merely u
heavy swell. Captain hand of the English
man-of-war Royalist , who came to Apia from
Africa during the latter-part of mv stay in
Snmoa , was so apprehensive of the sudden
visit of a hurricaiio lhat ho Ho in steam up
constantly by banked fires , in o'rder that ho
might put out to sea without delay , where ho
would have plenty of room to ride out the
storm , . Captain Kane , of the English man-
of-war Calliupo , probably followed his ex
ample , thus when the hurricane came , they
wore ready to leave dangerous harbor at
once. The American and jjermuu ships' in
Samoa woro'nlwnys forced * to save fuel for
au emergency. The hurricane which
last visited Samoa previous to
the ono mentioned occurred jn
18Si. ; Residents of Samoa told mo that they
usually came at Intervals of about six years.
In the storm of 1SS3 u largo American
schooner was carried ever half u mile across
thn reef and landed In the yard of tbo Ger
man consulalo , while several large vessels
wcro forced bigli up on the beach. When I
left Apia many 'residents expressed their
fear that a liurrlcmie'would visit the Islands
In February. AU thu vessels In the harbor
having been destroyed or beached there
must bo grcatdiniculty for residents of Apia
to communicate with tbo mall steamers at
Tutulla , aixty-Jlva miles away , the Calliope
having gene to Sydney * Sixtyflvp , miles is
a long distance to pull a row boat , in the
heavy sea , which runs oft the shore in tbo
vicinity of Samoa. " >
Work : on thf > Charleston.
SAN FIUKCIHCO , March 81 , Superintend
ent Dlckoy , of the Unloti Iron works , said to
day in reply to a query ) "Wo have not re
ceived any orders from Washington to rush
things on tbo Charleston , and even ( t we
should It would not do any good for the sim
ple reason that wo have more than crammed
the vessel with expert workmen , and fur
ther attempts to expedite matters would bo
ridiculous. 'Tlio propeller blades will bo put

The Charleston will come oil the dock next
Thursday and will bo tatien to Mission Rock ,
She will remain there until ready , to go to

her guns. "
The Queon'B ML-HHUXC of Condolence.
M , March 81. Queen Victoria
cabled through Lord Salisbury to the Brit-
sh legation In this city to-day , directing that
icr earnest sympathy bo tendered to the
nrcsldont of the United States on account of
.ho terrible naval misfortune nt Samoa and
.ho deplorable loss of life. Edwards , the
Urltish cbiueo d'affalra ' , accompanied by the
secretary of state , waited upon the president
this afternoon and road to him the queen' *
message. President Harrison expressed his
warm appreciation , and Unit of the people of
the whole country , of the queen's consider
ate sympathy In the cilnmlty that had over
whelmed our naval corps at Samoa. A
lorinnl reply to the queen's message would
jo made , thu president said , through the do-
lartmcut of stato.

The immediate relatives to those who lost
ihelr lives will bo entitled to a pension under
the general laws. The pension is $0 for a
seaman's widow per month , and S3 per month
for each child under sixteen yours of ago. .
In tiio cuso of widows of ollicers it is proper-
tlonably larger. The parents of the dead
persons will have to prove that they were
doriotulcnt upon their sons for support to en
title them to pensions. Congress will probably
also pass a special act making reimburse
ments for the oflects and baggage of the
officers and men lost In this wrcclt. This
was done in the case of the Huron , which
went down on the Hntturas coast about ilf-
tcen years ago.

What had boon the decision of the cabinet At (1

tern had at the morning discussed the
question whether the facts brought
under their notlco by the Inquiry Into tlio ,
doings of the Llguo dos Patrlotcs did or did I
not authorize them to extend the prosecu
tions already instituted , but the sATetof
the decision that had been como to had forja
wonder boon well kept. Accordingly tno
well Informed persons who hold forth know
ingly on ministerial plans sometimes oven
before these plans liavo talcon a local habita
tion und name in the minds of the ministers
themselves had an ample field for their In
genuity. At first it was held that the gov-
crumcnt had decided to ask tha chamber to
authorize the prosecution of General Bou- >
lauger. A little later these sensational re
ports wcro flatly contradicted. In the midst
of all this perturbation of spirit in walked
General Boulangor himself , looking n trlflo

forward to meet hihi and gave his band a
hearty shako. 'The general took his ac
