Clark- son, First Assistant Postmaster Gen- eral, whose resignation has been wi'h the President for five months, prac- tically concluded his' service in the Postoffice Department Saturday, as his resignation too'-: effect the last of the month. The Pre-sident much desired his further continuance in the place, but Mr. Clarkson was unablo to remain longer. Clarltson assumed the office in March, only at the strong persua- sion of the President, the Republican National Committee and the leading men of the party, and he has remained ia it since against his own wishes. It is reliably stated that Mr. Clarkson will very sooa assume the presidency of the Judson Pneumatic Railway Com- pany, which applies new principles to railway locomotion and to motive pow- er in cities, and which is now build- ing a railway in Washington City. The following facts grained from tbo de- partment give the record of Mr. Clark- j. s. CLARKSOX. son's work. In his nearly eighteen months in olfico he has appointed fourth class postmas- ters and established new post- offices, making his record in alL All the appointments in the Postoffice Department are made up in the First Assistant's office, and in Presidential offices appointments have been made during Mr. Clarkson's official time, leaving only 400 of this class of offices unchanged. This is the largest record in changes and in, establishment of post-offices ever made in the same length of time. The men most named for Mr. Clark- son's successor are L. T. Michner, of In- diana: II. C. Payae..of Wisconsin; C. I. Filley, of John N. Irwin, of Iowa; Samuel of Connecti- cut; W. YV. Morrow, of California, and E. C. Fowler, now chief clerk of the office. As Mr. Clarkson was the only representative of the Mississippi valley ana the West in the department, it is thought that his successor is most like- ly to come from tho West also. FIREBUGS AT VVOHK.
