LONDON , Juno 28. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to Tin : Bm : . | "President
Harrison will make a change In his cabinet ,
very soon. That's ' the principal thing 1 can
toll the Herald. "
This was sald byJCongrcssmnn William E.
Mason , of Chicago , as ho was hurrying nlong
yesterday morning to catch n train for Paris.
Mason , by reason of the very elllcipnt ser
vices ho rendered the republican party In the
last campaign. Is understood to stand very
close to President Harrison politi
cally , nnd , consequently , many will consider
his words quoted nbovo ns having great sig
nificance. When asked to bo moro explicit ,
Congressman Mason said :
"Of course I can not snj positively what
President Harrison will or will not do. No
ono can do that. But Just before I loft Wash
ington I learned from sources which 1
deemed worthy the fullest confidence that
the president Intends to appoint Attorney
General Miller to the vacancy on the
supreme bcnoh , made vacant by the death of
Justice- Stanley Matthews. Mr. Miller was
thn president's old luw partner In Indian
apolls , nnd presumably the president desires
to give him' what ho wants. It has been un
derstood for soiiio time that his ambition
was to get on the supreme bench. The in
formation I received was that Noble , the
scerutury of the interior , will bo transferred
to the attorney generalship. He is well
fitted to be attorney gencrul. Then Clark' '
son , now first assistant postmaster ccncral ,
wouM bo promoted to the secretaryship of
the Interior. It is the president's wish , I
believe , to get Clnrkson in the cabinet. As
n matter of fact , Clarkson has been doing
moro good solid work than nny ono else
since the administration took hold , and
ovcrvono knows how much ho did in the
campaign. I believe these eluintics will bo
made vcr.v soon , and , furthermore , 1 think
they ought to bo made.

PAIIIS , Juno 23. [ New York Herald Cable
Special to Tin : Bic.l : The American en
gineers had quito u field day to-day. Eighty-
eight of them , with their wives , daughters
nnd mothers-in-law , were received by Paul
do Cauvollo nt the Petit Bourc works with
great eclnt. They started from Care do
Lyon at half-past 1 and arrived at Corbiol nt
n quarter to 3. They were conducted
i through the establishment and seemed
much impressed with the admirable system
that is followed throughout the works.
After examining all the details of construc
tion the Americans got into the De Cauvllle
railway carriages again und wcro whisked
off to the Chateau dos Tourellcs over n road
thut ascended a grade of . ' 10 degrees , and
with the sharpest of curves. This line had
been made especially for their visit , and this
was the maiden trip of the little train.
The Chateau dcs Tourelles , a charming
country house surrounded by a beautiful
park , whore Mmo. do Montcspan once Irol-
Ickcd and flirted , was reached In a few mo

lawn M. Paul do Cauvillo Jumped from the
carriage und said : "I welcome you to my
homo. I want you to walk in and take lunch. "
The Americans and their relatives did so im
mediately. Tlio chateau as well as the works
were 'gaily decorated' with the stars and
During lunch the Herald correspondent
took occasion to call M. DC Cauvillo' : ) atten
tion to the schema for n Congo railway
recently published In the Herald. "Why
colud not a Do Cauvillo railway bo laid from
the Zanzibar coast to Victoria Nyanzal"
"It could bo done , nnd nt a comparatively
little expense , " replied Paul Do Cauvillo.
"A Do Cauvillo railway of say sixty or
soventy-fivo centimetres guuge could bo laid
in nny part of Africa as cheap , if not
cheaper , than that of any other system. "
"How nbout the cost of construction i"
"The cost would bo loss than that of other
lines , for the Do Cauvillo line can surmount
steeper grades and turn sharper curves than
nny other. "
"Then you think the prospect of a Do
Cauvillo railroad from the Zanzibar coast to
the heart of Africa , say Victoria Nynnzu , or
even connecting with the Congo , thus formIng -
Ing a trans-African railroad system , to bo
perfectly fcasiblol"

Feb. , ) Juno 23. [ Spcclnl Telegram to Tun
BEE. ] The representative of TUP. lir.v. was
fortumito enough to secure nn Interview
with Hed Clo.'d to-day. Up to this time ho
has positively refused to bo Interviewed by
any one , cither by members of the commis
sion or reporters , and for this reason your
representative , although n friend for years ,
has loft him nlono on the subject of the bill.
This morning , in bidding him good-bye , ho
was uskcU If ho had nothing to say on the
"Yes , my friend , 1 will tell .you. Wo have
been good friends for a long time. I
ntn your friend and bcllovo you
nro n good one to mo. So
I will tell you two of my main reasons. I
have raudo four treaties with the Great.
Father In 1S51 and In 1S55 , when wo gave
up our hunting grounds , In 1S03 for our an
nuities and in 1STO , when I gave up the
Black Hills. Every treaty wo signed , giving
up our land , wo had many promises made to
Ub about the great many things \\o were to
receive , and the big amount of money wo
would got. If those promUes had nil been
filled , as we wore mauc to believe , wo would
now BO wealthy like the Indians in the
Indian territory , who have plenty of
money to spend , but , as it Is , wo
have no money In our pockets and nro poor.
If we go on selling our lands wo will soon
have none for ourselves. "
"What is your opinion of the presentbllll"
"It Is a good bill , the best the Great
Father over offered us , but it is not good
enough , It does not glvo us enough for our
land. It Is worth more and will bring much
more money In a few yours , so I want to
-wait. When I do sell , wo will bo richer
than wo are now. My best friends udviso
mo not to sell our land nt present. "
"What Is the second reason which is dis
agreeable to .you ! "
"When the commission came hero at our
first council I asked that all half-breeds and
all white men and Mexicans who were not
in the treaty of 1SOS , but who had married
into our people , should bo allowed to sign
the bill , although , without our full consent ,
they had no rirfht hero. This was granted
by the commission. Instead of these men
waiting the action aim listening to the head
chiefs they at once undertook to run every
thing and diem to to me , telling mo nnd other
chiefs what wo should do when they really
had no rigtit to say anything. The commis
sion allowed it , and it made us mud. I have
done. "
"I learned that Major Pollock was to bo
hero on the 2oth to assist you. Will you tell
mo the reason ho did not come ! "
"Yes. Ho intended coming , but to come
hero while the commission was hero might
Have complicated matters and they might
not have understood it. Pollock is my
friend. What no would tell mo I would
think he would believe for our best interests
Ho will como after the commission leaves.
How soon I do not know ; perhaps next week ,
when wo'will have n long talk. "
The interview was interrupted by others
and it was Impossible tp continue , as
the farewell council was ubout to
take place. The great reason why
the chiefs oppose the bill is
that they fully realize that when the
Indians take land in scvcrality , each man
will have his Individual rights.
At the farewell council nn immense body
of Indians was present and gave deep atten
tion. Major Wrner addressed them hi sub
stance as follows :
"My friends , two weeks ago wo came to
bring the words of the Great Father. Dur
ing our stay wo have spoken only words of
kindness , nnd wo leave you us wo met you
good friends. It is true thnt.much wo have
said has fallen on stony places. Strange us
it may seem , tliero are those who listen to
self-constituted Indians in Washington in
stead of to us , sent by the Great Father men
who , as the Grcut Spirit reigns auovo us ,
live off your necessities instead of honest
work. In leaving you I go feeling that I
have done my duty , not having tried to Hat
ter or threaten you Into signing. Wo have
waited long nnd patiently to hour objections
to this measure , but none has come. Fully
one-half the legal voters have signed the bill.
They have not done it in the dark , with
blankets over their eves , but openly , In the
light of day. They were men among you ,
and , believing that what the Great Father
said was to their best interest , they signed.
Another class among you huvo slapped
the Great Father In the face by
listening to enemies Instead of these the
Great Father sent to you , having closed your
eyes and cars before the commission came
hero. It Is not to us but the f uturo of the
Indian race you are determining , These
who have signed this bill will bo gracefully
remembered , nnd C but tell you the truth
when I say that these agulnst it are enemies
to themselves nnd to their raeo. I bcllovo in
the future of the Indian race that it will bo
onward nnd upward as the sun. I believe
you will huvo homes lllto the whites , and
these who oppose the udvnuco toward civili
zation nnd prosperity will bo like the fly on
the wheel trying to stop Its revolutions.
Those among you who are striving for the
path of the whites are striving to get through
the clouds eut of the darkness into
light , and are true friends of
the Great Father. The men
who stand in your way can no longer boyour
leaders , but these who lead you forward und
their actions should bo received with bless
ings , not curses. The Great Father has at
tempted to make no man sign the bill , and ho
will protect these that did. Many hnvo re
fused to listen , and blindly follow these who
slapped the Great Father in the face. I ask
you to listen and open your oycs , for I ad
dress you us Ireo men. We li-uvo the bill
with your agent , so you can sign. Your
chiefs say they are not keeping anybody
back , but the youni , ' men could do as they
pleased. This bill offers you more than uny
bill over offered to uny people. When wo
meet again you will Buy I told you the truth ,
that it was bcbt for you and your families ,
and you will honor these most In the future
who tried to lead you ns the Great Father
wished you to go. I talk to you as a friend
und as the Great Father is above. 1 part
with no unkind feelings. Think about the
bill and tnik it over when wo nro gone. I
hope to sea you when 1 visit you again living
In line houses , with llocks and herds about
you. "

proclty Proposition
From Cnnniln.
WASIIINUTON , D. C. . Juno 23.
In appointing Frederick Douglass ns minis
ter to Ilaytl to-day , the president provided
for one of the gentlemen who has been re
garded as a likely candidate for the recorder-
ship of deeds in the District of Columbia.
Thrco wcoks ago It was understood that the
plnco was to go to ex-Congressman Richard
Gucnthcr , of Wisconsin. Later , however ,
there was so much pressure brought upon
the president to give It to u resident of the
District of Columbia that Mr. Guenthcr was
set aside und u colored man was reported to
have been settled uuon. This colored man
was Prof. Gregory , of Howard university ,
who , it now turns out , was an applicant for
the same place under President Cleveland.
Gregory will scarcely got the plnco , but it is
understood to-day that Mr. Guenther Is to bo
provided for In the consular service. The
place which is said to huvo been set aside for
him Is the consulate generalship at Havana.
Financially the place is a very good ono , und
Mr. Gucnther's ' friends hero ussert it is his
If ho will accept It.
The secretary of the treasury this after
noon filled one of the three remaining bureau
appointments under his department. Late
in the day ho sent word to Captain Meredith
to como to the department , nnd when thn
pentlcmmi responded ho was received in the
inner room and closotcd with the secretary
for fifteen minutes. His face wore a broad
smile us ho came out , nnd when nskcd by
two or three , who wcro waiting in the outer
room , if ho was u subject for congratulations ,
ho responded :
"Yes , 1 think I may tell you that I am.
The secretary has Just given me permission
to telegraph to my wife that I am to assume
the duties of the olllco on Monday , the 1st
of July. "
Mr , Graves , the present superintendent of
the bureau of engraving and printing , will
scarcely have an opportunity to initiate Ins
successor Into the duties of the office , as ho
starts for Tucomii to-morrow , whnro ho will
become the president of u new national
bank , which was authorized to do business
thcro yesterday. Captain Meredith will not
have the patronage at hla disposal which lias
been accorded to his predecessors. There
are twelve or fifteen hundred employes
in the bureau , nnd until within n
year they have been appointed without the
aid of the civil service , but following out the
policy Inaugurated for the purpose of re
lieving his successor of till possible patron
age , President Cleveland extended the Juris
diction of the commission over this office ,
und now the women who handle the sheets
ns they go to the plato printers must pass an
examination before they can hope for ap
pointments , at n dollar and a quarter a day.
The two Important remaining positions un
der the treasury'department still to bo filled
are the third nutUtors'hip' and the suporiu-
tc-ndcncy of the coast and geodetic sur
vey. The present third auditor is Colonel
Williams , of Indiana , who , it i * understood ,
is to bo succeeded by another Indiana man
about the end of July. Tlio coast sur
vey will bo filled by the 10th of the month.
Heretofore the place has been nn appoint
ment of'tho secretary of the treasury , but
the last appropriation virtually made a hew
office of it. It makes the , appointment sub
ject to "confirmation" by the senuto nnd
really compels the president to make a new
appointment. The present incumbent is , to
all intents und purposes , legislated out of
office with the close of the fiscal year , and
his successor must bo named within ten days
after the office becomes vacant. H is still
thought that the place will be , given to Prof.
Gould , of Harvard university , who is ono
of the most eminent scientific men in the
In the appointment of D. M. Ransdell to
bo marshal of the District of Columbia , this
afternoon , the president has practically re
stored that office to the social impoitanco
which it occupied under the administration
of President Arthur. Until the inauguration
of President Cleveland the marshal of the
district was the social right hand man of the
president. Upon him devolved a great muuy
duties connected with the executive man
sion. Whenever n reception was in progress
the marshal was regarded us the hitimuto
friend of the chief magistrate. President
Arthur appointed a personal friend , but
President Cleveland selected us marshal a
gentleman who was un entire stranger to
him. Mr. Runsdoll's relations with the
president huvo been intimate , and he will bo
brought into closer contact with the presi
dential family than any other man in Wash
ington , except It bo the president's private
secretary. Ho will assume the duties of his
new office on Monday , and will bring his
family on hero later in tlio season. Mr.
Ruiisdoll bus n wife nnd four children.
An Ottawa special to the Now York Sun
this morning says thut the Dominion govern
ment Is nbout to propose to the government
of the United States un iirrangomont for un
restricted reciprocity in the interchange , of
lumber nnd lumber products. The dispatch
seems to bo based on official news nnd con
veys the impression that the first steps
towards thu arrangement huvo been tauen
by the Dominion authorities. ThejBrltlsh le
gation attaches ure naturally non-communi
cative on this subject , and the etuto depart
ment people positively refuse to give any in
formation whatever. Their reticence leads
to the belief that the plan has been broached
by Sir Jullen Puuncefotc , and this Idea gains
color from the fact thut Sir Jullen hud a long
interview with the president u day or two
ago. Anything which may bo done towards
the reciprocal exchange of lumber
or any other products between
the two countries must , of course , bo accom
plished in tlio form of a treaty , nnd in the
present state of feeling n reciprocal treaty
cannot secure the necessary votes for a rati
fication in the senate , The members of the
senate committee on our relations with
Canada who have recently returned hero
say that the sentiinciit of the country , ns fur
us they could uscortain , Is agulnst reciprocity
at present , except ulong the border , but
them Is no doubt thut a treaty having for its
object simply the unrestricted Interchange
of lumber products would meet with very
general approval umoni. the senators from
the western states , nnd In view of the fact
thut such a treaty wdujd probably provide
for the free exportation of Iocs from the
Dominion It would be quito likely to get
moro or less support from the representa
tives of the states of Michigan , Minnesota
and Wisconsin In the upper house.

'Iho Civil Service Commission Will
Enforce the I < : i\v.
WASHINGTON , Juno 23. A communication
was recently received by thu civil service
commission from P. M. Wright , secretary of
the local board of civil service examiners nt
Port Huron , Mich. , asking that the board bo
allowed to hold a competitive examination
on the llth of July for clerks and Inspectors
In custom houses In plnco of thut announced
for the 13th of June , which was
not held , Tlio commission has directed n
reply allowing the examination to bo held for
the clerlta , but not for the Inspectors , on the
ground that the sccrctu'y of the board fur
nished no statement of me number of names
on the eligible list for appointment us in
spectors. Speaking of this action Commis
sioner Roosevelt , on behalf of the commis
sion , said :
"Wo are especially reluctant to do this ,
but it is in consequence of nn nrticlo which
appeared in a Detroit paper purporting to bean
an interview with Mr. Geer , collector of cus
toms at Port Huron. So far us wo know
this interview , 1ms not yet been repudiated.
In it Geer is reported as strenuously con
demning the civil service luw and stating the
belief thut the proper theory to adopt
In the management of his olllco is
that implied in the old adage , To thu
victors belong the spoils. ' Geer being the
appointive officer at tlio custom house , whoso
duty it ia to administer tlio luw which ho
thus condemns , his expressions render it
especially incumbent upon the commission to
ECO that no chance whatever is given for un
evasion of the law. The commission has , of
course , no control over the expressions of
uny public officer , but it intends to make it
its particular duty to provcnt uny admin
istration of the luw in accordance with
the theories enunciated by Gour. It
will tolerate no violation and no
evasions of the statute. Examinations
are open to all , democrats und republicans ,
alike. " Continuing , Roosevelt said : "This
statement is to bo considered us the authori
tative statement of the commission. Views
of the kind attributed to Gccr would have
the effect of keeping dcnmcrutic applicants
from applying j'or . competitive examination
In the classified service. Wo wish to show
them that the commission will tuka good
care to see that Gear's words remain words
only and do not crystalizo into deeds.1.1

CHICAGO , iiuno 23. [ Special Telegram to
Tun HBH.J According to ono of the most
conservative freight agents In Chicago , the
northwestern situation Is nn extremely dark
ono and there Is no ray of light to show a
wny to the outcome. The Western Freight
association \vus In session all day to-dnybut ,
beyond the wasting of a Inrgo amount of
wind und the stirring up of much nddltlomil
bad nlocil , nothing was accomplished. Half
n dozen plans of settlement were proposed ,
but none of them could got the rcijulslto
unanimous support. The Idea of nil the roads
was , if possible , to prevent the snrcad of the
low commodity through rates , to bo put Into
effect .luly r. , to the local rates. Tlio railroad
commissioners of Iowa , Minnesota and 1111-
nois uro Jealously watching the situationand
these roads nro afraid they will use the low
commodity tariff us an excuse to lower the
local state rates. Tlio proposition which
mot the most general favor nt the
meeting was to Ignore entirely the
lake lines nnd go back to the old rates In ex-
Istcnco before the present break. To thla
the Burlington & Northern would not agree ,
ns its Income Is derived almost entirely from
through traffic. U proposed un amendment
agreeing to the advance lu locul rates , pro
vided It had the privilege of meeting the
through rate made by the lake linos. Every
rend except the Burlington & Northern
voted against the amendment. Another
| iroiosition was that the Hock Island und
Chicago , St. Paul & ICnnsas City , which run
through Iowa , should not use the low com
modity turifr , thus preventing the spread of
the low rates west of the east line of Iowa.
This was also voted down. No further busi
ness was considered , the day being worse
than wasted , us n spirit of hostility was
engendered which Is moro liable to increase
than diminish.
Cooler heads nt the close of to-day's meot-
Inc criticised the refusal to go back to the
old rate mid allow the Burlington & North
ern to meet the lalto rale. At present the
roads are doing little or no through business ,
tlio low lake rate , taking the trulllc. It would
thus take no trnlllu nway from the North
western roads to raise the through rates nnd
allow the Bnrlincton ft Northern to meet
the lake rate. The refusal to do t > o , accordIng -
Ing to several members of the association ,
will prevent n settlement of the question
even at the close or navigation.
The Alton has issued a lontf answer to the
members of the Inter-State Passenger asso
ciation , replying to the charge that the Den

Vale Wins By Six
NEW LONDON , Conn. , June 23. The four
teenth annual lour-milo straightaway , clght-
eared race between crews representing
the universities of Yale nnd Harvard ,
was rowed this evening over the
Thames river course and was won by Vnlo
by six boat lengths. Official time , Yule , ,
21:30 : ; Harvard , 21:5,1. : The series of races
between these colleges now stands , Yale ,
eight victories ; Harvard , six victories ; Ynlo
also holds the record for the fastest time
over tlio course , made last your. The crowd
which saw the rnco was unusually largo ,
there being several thousand moro strangers
in town than for several years. All desira
ble points along the course were packed with
people , The race , originally pet for 11
o'clock , was postponed until nvenlng on
account of rough water. The crows were
promptly sent away ut 7:20. : Harvard started
off with a thirty-two stroke and Yule thirty-
two. At the end of the quarter-mile Yale
took the lead about ten feet. Both crows
wcro in excellent form and nt the next
quartor-mllo neither could gain nn inch.
Just ultcr passing the half-mile Hug Harvard
took the lead about ten feet. This lead
Harvard held but a few seconds. As the
crows ncarcd the mile fiug Ynlo spurted ,
gaining a quarter length , passing tlio mile.
Hag In 4:17 : , pulling n tlilrty-two-stroko.
with Harvard two seconds behind
pulling thirty-one. The spurt by which
Yale took the lend nt the inllo settled the
race , as after passing that point Yale grad
ually increased her lead and Harvard was
unable to prevent it. Yale passed tlio ono
and one-half mile- ( lag In 7:15 , pulling thirty-
two , and Harvard in 7:10 : , pulling thirty
strokes. Yalu then dropped her stroke to
thirty , whim Harvard Increased hers to
thirty-two. Tlio oll'oots of the hard race for
a mill ) nnd a half w > is plainly visible in .tho
Harvard boat FInlay , No. 5. nnd Tilton , No.
0 , were losing form nnd Fiulay was slow In ,
yetting his oar out of the water after each
stroke. Yule , however , was pulling in per
fect form , o.vcry man in thn bout sliding as
ono . limn and lifting their ours lu
perfect timo. At two miles Yale
showed a boat's length clear water ,
; md the rnco WHS finished bofuriis Harvard's
chances wcro concerned. At that point ( two
miles ) Yale was pulling tlilriy-threound Har
vard thirty-two. After passing the two-mile
flag Nos. 0 nnd 7 In the Harvard boat
splashed badly , and their body movement
was bad. Yulo'n long , uwcnplng strokes
sent her further nnd further ahead , und at
the two and a half mlle fiag they hud a lead
of fully four lengths. From the two and
a half mile fiat ; to tlio thrco and a half mlle
flag the positions remained the same. After'
passing the three and u half mlle fiag Yale
gradually increased her lead with no apparent
effort. In the Harvard boat things were
different. At the thrco and three-quarter
mile flag Ynlo struck smooth water close
under the bank und two additional lengths
wcro quickly added to her lead. Harvard
made u final effort to lessen the distance , butte
to no purpose , us Vnlo crossed the line au
easy winner by six lengths. Harvard lost
because she was not so well tuuuht us Yule
and becnuho her stroke , oven ut thirty-four ,
was not so effective as Yule's at thirty ,
