Robinson of Washington, appointed consul at Hamburg, was se- lected after much owing to the fact that Hamburg is the port from which the greatest danger to this couutry from cholera infection is expected. His record in the consular service is excellent. He was appointed consul at Yarmouth, Xova Scotia, by Mr. Cleveland eight years ago and was transferred aud promoted to the consulates at Moncton, Xew Bruns- wick.

The question of reorganizing the boards of Dsusion eiam- iug surgeons throughout the country is just now under consideration by Secre- tary Hoke Smith, Commissioner Lochren and Deputy Commissioner Murphy. There are of these boards, each containing three members, and their work is a very important factor iu the administration of tbe pension laws and in the adjudication of claims. Officials of the department state that careful examinations have revealed incom- petence and gross carelessness in the work of some of these boards, and in some in- stances tbe evidence indicates that im- proper influences have been successfully apolied to secure reports in pension claims favorable to the applicants. In view of these facts it has been decided to give this branch of the service a general overhaul- ing. While no formal plan of reorganization has been announced it is the stated purpose of Commissioner Lochren, with the ap- proval of the secretary, to appoint on these boards only men who stand in the very front rank of the profession in theirrespec- tive localities, and men who keep well abreast of the times in medical science. Another inflexible condition to appoint- ment will be that of unquestioned integ- rity. The politics of applicants will not, it is said, be made of first importance, although, all other things being equal, Democrats undoubtedly will be given the preference. An official in speakipg of the matter said that recommendatioBx by men of known character in the medical profession would be more efficacious in securing an appoint- ment on pension boards than if made by politicians. The active -work of reorganiza- tion will be begun. Ford Reappointed. N, June 9. -Secretary Car- lisle has appointed Worthington Ford of Brooklyn chief of the bureau of statistics, treasury department. Mr. Ford is about 40 years of age, and during the last Cleve- land administration served as cbief of the bureau of statistics of the department of state.

COLUMBUS, the Duke of Verugua as the city's guest aud a Ke- publicaii state convention iu full blast, this city has been unusually lively. The convention unanimously renomi- nated Governor William McKinley for governor and reaffirmed Its fuith iu the principles of the Republican Kinley bill aud all. The most remarkable enthusiasm was throughout the meeting. The .Duke of Veragua and party, escort- ed by Commander it-presenting the president of the Viiitwl States, arrived here and were escorted by the Biirrarks band aud ofticers of the Fourteenth regi- ment and the Junui Hussars, mounted in full uniform, to thi; handsome ninimioti ot Henry T. Chitteiulen, whose gtu-st. the ducal party will be during their stay iu Columbus. A sensational event marked the close of the school children's parade iu honor ot the duke. The duke's brother was stricken n-ith angina pectoris and fell prostrate on the gnuul stand. He suffered frightful igony, and the attack seemed likely to result fatally owing to the terrific jam of spectators and the inability ot the author- ties to force back the people ami give the nobleman air. Bishop stood ready to administer the last sacramunt. An electric liattery was brought into op- eration by the physicians who hud beeu called, however, and the necessity for action by the bishop gradually disap- peared. The attack was probably brought on by the excitement of the day. the cheer- ing and tumult in the convention which nominated Governor McKinley and the remarknhle sight of the procession of school children, which proved to be miles in length. _________________ FLORIDA ORANGE CROP. Cheerful Muilo at the Meeting oT the Fralt Exchange. JACKSONVILLE, June annual meeting of the stockholders of the P'lorida Fruit Exchange was held here. Several hundred orange growers of the state were present. The annual report of the president. Major G. R.

The average net price to tho grower at the nearest railroad or steamboat station has lieen SI.31 per box, an increase of nearly y) per cent, over the average of the previ- ous year. President Fairbanks says the coming crop will exceed in volume all previous yields. A conservative estimate phices it at fully boxes, of which over will markeU-d. It is the pur- pose of the Fruit Exciir.nsc to market a considerable portion of this crop in Eng- land and other foreign countries. MAKING A NEW SCALE. Worlc of the In Convention at I'itt-iburji.
