Governor Beaver's nose was pulled yester

Major Armes attacked him, he admits, but
he says he protected the Gubernatorial

rSPXClAX. IZUGB1K TO TBI DISPATCH.!
"Washington, March 27. " General
Beaver, do you intend to apologize for your
treatment of me during the inauguration ?"
The speaker was indignant. Indeed, he
was real mad. It was Major J. A. Armes,
a retired army officer, now in the real estate
business. The scene was the rotunda of the
Riggs House. Time, 4 o'clock this after
noon. Governor Beaver had just returned
from a call on the President, and was about
to take a drive. Only a few people were in
the hotel corridors at the time.
"Apologize?" exclaimed the Governor.
"I don't know what I have to apologize for.
I have done you no injury."
"Your treatment of me. was insulting, sir,
and I demand an apology," said the Major,
in a loud voice.
"And I will not apologize," answered the
A Utile Too Quick for life Major.
"With a quick movement Major A-rmes
reached out toward the Governor's nose, and
in another moment that precious member
Would have been wrung-in the most humili-
eling manner, but-lbeGdveTior was as
grasp of the Major, whirled his crutch in
the air, and made a decidedly scientific pass
at his assailant's head.
Unfortunately ho aimed just a trifle too
high. The crutch passed over the Major's
head and struck one of the pillars of the
rotunda. Persons acquainted with Armes
then got hold of him and hustled him out of
"Within five minutes the report was, over
the streets that .Major Armes had actually
got the Governor's nose between his fingers
and had tweaked it unmercifully.
The Malar Says He Succeeded.
Major Armes himself stood abont the
street corners and in the saloons boasting he
nad made good his threat of pulling the
sacred nose of the Governor of the mighty
State of Pennsylvania. The hotel "bouncer"
danced abont the hotel office asking where
the scoundrel had gone, though this same
"bouncer" was within six feet of the Major
when the attempt at assault occurred, and
made no movement to interfere. He was
'Correspondents began to rush for the hotel.
Politicians gathered in groups and discussed
the matter, and for the time the surprising
nominations of "Bob" Lincoln and "Pat"
Egan were forcotten in the melee occasioned
by the onslaught on the one-legged Gov
ernor and late chief officer of the inaugural
pageant. Of course everything was greatly
exaggerated. One story had the Governor's
nose badly disfigured.
Governor Beaver In a Good Humor.
Anxious to get the exact truth regarding
the momentous affair, the correspondent of
The Dispatch called on General Beaver.
That gentleman laughed pleasantly when
inquiry was made about the matter. -
"Ob, no, he did not touch me," said the
Governor, and proceeded to give the brief
details of the occurrence as above described.
"There is no doubt the man is a crank," he
continued, "and hardly responsible for his
action. I had nothing to do with his re
moval from the inaugural procession, though
I really ought to have had something to do
with it. I care nothing abont his attempted
assault on me. It is a trivial matter, and I
wish it were possible to have nothing said
abont it, but I suppose that can't be."
Major Armes is the person who was ad
vertised all over the country in the descrip
tion of the inaugural parade as riding a
horse beside the carnage of the President,
followed by a negro groom, also on horse
back. The Cause of Armes' Resentment.
Under orders from General Gibson, chief
of Governor Beaver's staff, he was removed
from the procession by policemen. He had
wanted an appointment on the staff of
Governor Beaver, bnt was rejected. Then
he vowed he would ride at the head of "the
procession anyway, and did so until he Was
lorcibly ejected from the line. A few days
ago he preferred charges against General
Gibson for conduct unbecoming an officer
and a gentleman, and at the same time
swore he would get even with Beaver by
pulling his nose.
Tears ago Armes was dismissed from the
army by the verdict of a court martial. The
case was afterward reopened and Armes
was reinstated and placed on the retired
list, but he has always been a little queer
and a good deal of a mischief-maker, and
has been given the cut direct by his fellow
officers. He has an uncontrollable desire
for notoriety, and is congratulating himself
this evening that he will wake up famous
Why the Governor Called.
Governor Beaver's sole errand to the cap
ital to-day was to say an earnest word for
August Donath, of Chester county, for
Public Printer. It is agreed by all disin
terested persons that Donath is well
equipped for the position, and his backing
is admitted to be powerful, politically, but
for some reason the President finds it de
cidedly difficult to make up his mind, and
so the many high officials and emlnent-poli-ticians
who have urged Donath are growing
restive, and have determined to make new
and more urgent efforts to bring about his
appointment. Governor Beaver spent some
time with the President, and earnestly
argued the qualifications of Donath, but
Mr. Harrison would only answer by dis
cussing the great responsibilities involved
in the management of the Government
printing office, and by assuring the Gov
ernor that he had not yet decided whom he

Ex-Congressman Nichols, of North Caro
lina, feels sure that he is to have this office.
Major Meredith", of Chicago, is still more
sure that he is the man. Albert Childs,
formerly Chief Clerk of the office, who is an
Ohio man, believes this evening he will get
the place because the President did him the
honor to make a pun upon his name. Gen
eral Grosvenor championed Mr. Childs to
the President, and Mr. Childs made a little
speech, which he concluded by saying: "i
am not pledged to man, woman or child."
"And yet you ask me to pledge myself to a
Child?" said the President, with a saucy ex
pression, and Baby McK.ee laughed loudly
in the background.

sight of the other is failing, and his JRepub

should be spared the necessity of using his
remaining eye to conduct his official corres

eager to set out on his mission.
Mr. Russell Harrison was in the jolly

save the Colonel's good fortune, which he
frankly ascribed in large part to the good
offices of Mr. Childs. Mrs. Grant seemed

she chatted about it. She enjoys a speak

On Friday morning some one, in behalf
of Mr. Magee, will move to place Senate

A CAEEFULLY MADE BILL.
The Hines incorporation bill will proba
bly not be returned from the Honse Street
Railway Committee until after the trial of
strength with Mr. Magee. There are some
amendments to be made to it in addition to
those promised Mr. Capp, at least further
amendments are asked. The intention of
the Quay people is to carefully consider all
suggestions now before them, and then to
weigh the amended bill very carefully be
fore reporting it to the House.
A bill that will satisfy all legitimate
needs in the description of the measure it is
intended to place before the members of the
Legislature.. la other words, the bill is ex-'
pected to be of such a character that no
amendments can be made to it on the floor
of the House by means of which Mr. Magee
might claim a victory. Mr. Magee is to be
blocked on this point as well as on the bill
he desires to place on the calendar.
QUAY STUDYING EAIXBOAD LATV.
Chairman Andrews went to "Washington
when the Legislature adjourned last week,
and Mr. Quay's mind, it is understood, has
since then been working on the vexed ques
tion of street railway legislation, and when
llr. Quay's mind works it produces some
thing worth talking about The result of
the late national election is a living monu
ment to this fact.
The members of the Legislature are not
permitted to forget these things, and are
given to understand in addition that it is
Mr. Quay, and not Mr. Magee, who ' is, in
consequence, dealing ont the federal ap
pointments in the great State of Pennsyl
vania. Such reminders have great weight
with gentlemen who might otherwise feel
charmed by the seductive influences
brought to bear by the Republican leader
from the only second-class city in the State.

ambng the signers. In fact, he was just on'
the point of signing the paper the second
time, when he thoughtfully inquired what.
it was for, and erased the half-made second
signature, on getting the information.
There is no doubt that Mr. Cooper is to.

as a guarantee of good faith, he divides tbe
leadership of the Legislature with Senator
Delamater and Chairman Andrews, to the
complete satisfaction of these two gentle
men, Vho are only too glad to turnover
some of the hard work to the Delaware
county Senator. The three gentlemen ex
press not the the slightest feeling of alarm
over the effort of Mr. Magee. They are
nqt talking for publication, but those pre
sumably near and dear to them say tney
hive things just about as they want them.
Chairman Andrews has been much out of
his seat in the Honse. both tn-dnv and ves-
terday, and has been observed "in earnest
converse, about the House and elsewhere,
with members. He looks satisfied and hap
frwand wears tbe bland smile that is so be

i An AdminMraUim Pull of Great Hen's Boss and
Grandsons, Tis Called.
A number of respectable appointments
were made by the President, yesterday, but
L the grumbler is abroad. The coveted En
glish mission going, unexpectedly, to Rob
ert T. Lincoln, following the Grant and
"Walker Blaine appointments, causes a lot
of talk about this being an administration
of great men's sons and grandsons. Mnrat
Halstead is to have a hard time getting con
firmed. Considerable news about the ap
pointments is leaking out
ISFZCIAL TELIQRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
"Washington, March 27. Senators Cul
lom and Farwell have heard intimations in
the last day or two that the President con
templated the appointment of Robert T.
Lincoln to be Minister to England, bnt
they didn't fake the hint, and "this
morning the President sent for them
and asked their opinion about Mr.
Lincoln, whom he had decided to nomin
ate. Senator Farwell said that if the Presi
dent wanted a first-class lawyer for the posi
tion, as he understood he did, and was dis
posed to give Illinois the appointment, he
would suggest Mr. John N. Jewett But
the President made it clear very soon that
he had decided to appoint Mr. Lincoln, and
what he wasted was not advice, but an in
dorsement The Senators stated that they had a high
regard for Mr. Lincoln, and would be glad
to see him appointed, but Mr. Farwell re
minded the President that Illinois had
asked for several things it had not got, and
its chances for these things" ought not to be
impaired by its receipt of other things that
it did not ask for.
btbuok all op a heap.
None of the Illinois Congressmen were
asked about Mr. Lincoln, and, most of them
never heard him mentioned in connection
with the office' They take the nomination,
in different ways. "Without any personal
feeling against Mr. Lincoln, nearly all of
them in strict confidence confess that they'
are mad. Of course no one likes to
openly denounce tne nomination, bnt
in private conversation they talk with ex
treme frankness. There is Clark Carr, who is
always -worked to death by the party during
a campaign, and for whom the whole Illinois
delegation asked a good thing and urged
him as strongly as they conld, and here is
Mr, Linceln.who stayed in Europe during a
good part of the campaign, and for whom
the delegation asked nothing. Carr gets
nothing and Lincoln gets the biggest prize

lOTS OFGEOWIiINO AND SWEABTNG,
One of the leading Republicans of Ohio
denounced the selection in round terms.
"Whenever a group of politicians collects
and discusses the nominations there is
growling and swearing to a exy unusual
extent Congressman Cannon said this
afternoon that hi had never heard Mr. Lin
coln's name mentioned in connection with
the office, andlo was therefore surprised at
the appointment, but he knew that Mr.
Lincoln had enough ability and character
to discharge the dnties of his office
admirably, and he believed the appoint
ment would be a popular one with tbe
Congressman Hopkins was another who
thought the selection was instrinsically
good and would gratify public sentiment.
At the same time, no nominations that were
in themselves thoroughly respectable, have
been made for a long time that have excited
so much bitter denunciation as the appoint
ments of Messrs. Lincoln, Rice and Loring
to-day, and especially, among Illinois and
and o'ther Western men, the appointment
of Mr. Lincoln.
SONS AND GEANDSONS ON TOP.
Of course, the gentlemen who resent Mr.
Lincoln's selection refuse to allow their
names to be published in tbe papers, but the
appointment of Robert Lincoln, following
close upon the appointment of "Walker
Blaine and Fred Grant, and coincident with
the great political activity of Russell Harri
son, has inspired a great many caustic re
marks to-day, to the effect that this is an
administration of great men's sons and
It is putting it very mildly to say that the
growling over to-day's nominations is lond
and deep. There is almost a revolt, and
only the exercise of sharp party discipline
will prevent a bad break in the Republican
line. Tbo confirmation of Mr. Halstead's
nomination is very doubtful. At least
seven Republican Senators are outspoken in
their opposition to him on account ot his at
tacks upon them in the Commercial-Gazette
for refusing to vote to unseat Mr. Payne.
A bittee fight to be made.
" The nomination goes to the Foreign Af
fairs Committee, of which Mr. Payne is a
member, and he will have the support of all
the Democrats on the committee in his fight
against a favorable report Mr. Evarts is
one of the Republicans- on the committee
who is very angry at the nomination. He
voted In favor of Payne and strongly resent
ed Mr. Halstead's criticisms In a speech in
the Senate. Messrs. Ingalls and Teller are
two more Republicans who will fight the
nomination if it ever gets out of committee.
Seven Republicans in all are believed to
be immovably opposed to confirmation.
One of them said to-night that every re
source of the filibustering art would be
seized upon to prevent confirmation.
The New York Senators do not object to
Mr. Allen T, Rice for the Russian Mission,
as nobody particularly desired to go to that
bleak and uninviting post. Mr. Elliott F.
Shepard's friends are disappointed, how
ever, as all the missions that New York will
get have now been allotted.

Mr. Hicks, of "Wisconsin, who gets the
mission to Peru, like Mr. Rire, is the editor
of a review, the Oshkosh Review. Uncle
Philetus Sawyer when asked about him to
day closed h'li left eye and said: "I never
seen such a man. He is a born diplomat"
Patrick Egan, of Nebraska, wanted to go
to Mexico and was sent to Chill. Ex-Congressman
Ryan, of Kansas, wanted to go to
Chill and was sent to Mexico.
There are murmurs of disapproval over
Dr. George Beautiful Loring's selection for
the Portuguese mission. One of tbe rising
young statesmen of Massachusetts was in
dignant. "If they wanted a back number.'l
he said, "why didn't they take Boutwell?"
Atogether, it was an interesting day's
work. It is an interesting fact that the
French mission-was offered to uncle Joseph
Medill, of Chicago, before it whs tendered

Scbanion, Pa., March 27. Daniel W.
Connelly, who was appointed postmaster of
Scranton in May, 1883, and commissioned
by the President and then confirmed by the
Senate in January, 1866, and recommis
sioned for four years, has been removed on
charges of incompetency. Hon. D. M.
Jones has been appointed in his place. Mr.
Connelly was given an opitortnnlty by Con
gressman Scranton to resign when the four
years dating from his first commission ex
pired May 15, 1889.
He felt, however, that he could hold

be done for the Republican candidate for
office, and left Monday afternoon for "Wash
ington, saw the Postmaster GeneraLearly on
Tuesday morning, had the matter before a
Cabinet meeting at noon, and in the after
noon left "Washington, knowing that Mr.
Connelly's removal was ax. assured fact
The Postmaster General, it seems, was
not at all sanguine of tbe Congressman's
success in having the postmaster removed,
but said he Wonld lay the matter before the
President a Cabinet meeting to be held
at noon that day, that this was the first case
of the kind that had been broueht to the no
tice of the administration, and would be of
wide interest as a test case, and that
he was doubtfnl as to whether the President
would comply with Mr. Scranton's request
The President, however, sustained the
member from this district, fixing this pre
cedent It is jclaimea here that charges
made by a member of Congress over his sig
nature concerning an official in his district
were a sufficient cause for his removal.

Hughes was an able-bodied man and the
