Who will get the local Federal offices is a
question assuming considerable interest just
now. When the sweep takes place a large
number of patriots expect to be called for.
Three prominent candidates are in the field
for Pension Agent in the Western District
of Pennsylvania. The opposition seems to
center against Colonel Chill Hazrard, of
Monongahela City, and already all sorts of
protests are being filed against him and all
sorts of charges made.
rCPECIAI. TELEGEAH TO TIIE DISP ATCB.1
Washington, February 15. Just at the
present time there is probably n stronger
pull in progress for the office of Pension
Acent for the Western District of Pennsyl
vania than for any other office of interest to
that section. Two of the most prominent
candidates are Hon. William L. Magill, ex
member of the lower House of the Pennsyl
vania Legislature, and Mr. John M. Boyce
r-both citiiens of Pittsburg. Both are
popular with the soldier element, both being
veterans, and Magill baring been seriously
wounded in the "War oi the Rebellion.
The appointment will almost certainly go
to Allegheny county, as it is one of the best
of the offices appointed to the State from the
General Government, and it will be claimed
by Allegheny as the right of a county
which rolled up nearly 20,000 majority for
the Republican ticket. It thought that
Magill will get the plum, as he appears to
-have the backing of all, or nearly all, of the
Republican members ot Congress from the
western part of the State, as well as of the
POKED TJP HIS ENEMIES.
Another candidate who has been making
quite a stir in his own interest, and who has
succeeded in securing a powerful backing
on account of his popularity with the Grand
Army of the Republic, is Mr. Chill W.
Hazzard, of Monocirahcla City. He claims
to have the support of nearly all the posts
of the Grand Army of the State, and the
personal influence of Governor Beaver, Ad
jutant General Hastings and Secretary of
Internal -Affiiirs Stewart. He has made so
many boasts of the strength of his backing
and of the certainty that he will be ap
pointed that he has brought out an opposi
tion equally as powerful as his support, if
not more so. Charges of a very serious
character, and supported by proof that it
will be hard to dispute, have already been
lodged with members of Congress and
others, criticising his conduct of the post
office at Monongahcla City, which he held
for nearly eight years.
EVEN GEAVEK CHAEGES.
Other charges equally, if not more, seri
ous, are made, which w:ll be presented to
President Harrison in the fullest manner
if there appears to bo any probability of his
appointment. More than one citizen of
Washington county has written Congress
men and other men of influence here that
Mr. Hazzard could not get a bondsman for
a modest sum. to sav nothing of furnishing
the required security for 200,000, but it is
"said that he claims that Superintendent
Jones, of the Edgar Thomson Steel Com
pany, has promised to go on his bond.
However this may be, there will be a lively
light, and a great deal of soiled linen
washed in public, if there is the least pros
pect that Mr. Hazzard will get the appoint
ment. As to the other Government offices for
Western Pennsylvania, it is as good as set
tled that John i Dravo will again secure
the post of collector of internal revenue, as
he has the support of those whose wish will
be law to President Harrison in regard to
this and some other offices. The marshal
ship, which has been held successively by
Murdock, Hall and Miller, all of "Washing
ton county, for the last 20 years, will go to
some of the Northern counties. The dis
trict attorneyship, which has been given
twice to residents ot counties distant from
the metropolis of the West, will almost un
doubtedly come back to Allegheny county,
whose last incumbent was Hon. Harry Mo
Cormick. TM-STATE NEWS.

A HOPELESS FAILURE,
The .Grand Lake Coal Company .Confcties
Judgment for a Inrcc Amount The
Tremble Is Believed to involve
The announcement of the failure of the
Grand Lake Coal Company was made yes
terday. The liabilities are about $250,000.
The firm confessed judgment to Isaac S.
Vanvoorhis, Esq., in trust for the
creditors for 540,000, and tlja Sheriff
made a levy on a large amount
of personal property and the boats Samuel
MUler, J. S. Mercer and James Black
more. The whole lot will be sold at public
sale next week. The Joe Williams, one of
the largest boats on the river, is lying at
Louisville and was mortgaged yesterday for
the benefit of one of the creditors.
The failure dates back to the large amount
of coal snnk at New Orleans last August.
In addition, the company held a lot of
worthless paper in that city.
Secretary Baum said yesterday that the
failure was irretrievable. The assets and
liabilities will not be known exactly for a
few days. The members of the company
have always been hard working men. They
owned onc'of the finest fleets of boats on the
river. Already a "To Let" sign is dis
played on the office window, and the firm
expects to leave its present quarters about
April 1. AVhile the losses ot the company
