LeMars Sentinel (Newspaper) - May 23, 1890, Lemars, Iowa ' 0 ' ' i " irollcr of the Treasury noHignii to Beeomo u Banli Cashier. WASHKiOTON, May 23.-Mr. J. D. AbraliaiOT of Virginia, deputy comptroller of the currency, resigned his position and will go to New York city in a day or two to fill the position of ca.shier of the Southern National bank, formerly the Commercial National bank, of that city. Abrahams was appointed deputy comptroller in January 1887 and was acting comptroller from the time of Mr. Trenholm's resignation in January until May Ifi, 1880, when Comiitroller Lacoy qualified and assumed the duties of the office. Mr. Abrahams was nominated for tlie coniptrollership by President Cleveland in February, 1889, but was not confti-nicd. He tendered his resignation to tho in-coming admiiiisti'a-tion last May, but was "not accepted until yesterday, when, to meet his new engagement, Mr. Abrahams was com-peiied to renew it. Mr. Abrahams was �regarded as a most thorough and competent treasury official and leaves the department respected and liked by both superiors and subordinates. Renator-ISleet CarllMle. Wasiiinoton, May 23.-Seiiator-elect Carlisle went to New York last night. He expects to return so as to talce his seat Friday. His re.signation as a mom-lior of the house is in the hands of the governor of Kentuekj'. Tliere is some hpeciiliition as to th(( possible positions on committees to be given Mr. Carlisle. Mr Beck, his predecessor, was a member of the committee on appropriations, the committee on finance (among the most important committees of the senate) and the select committee on woman suffer-nge. It is possible that in view of his long service on tho committee on ways imd means, Mr. Carlisle will succeed to the place now vacant on the finance committee. If so, he will have an immediate opportimity of going over the tariff' question, with which he is now so familiar. The other committee places which will be awarded to him, -will probably be of minor importance. Census Matter. Washington, May 23.-President HaiTison signed an act providing that all mail matter of whatever class, relative to the census and addressed to the census office, to the superintendent of census, his chief clerk, supei-NTlsors or enumerators, shall be transported free by registered mail. By this act supervisors can send schedules registered to enumerators and enumerators can return them in the same way. The census is anxious tbat postmasters throughout the couiitryi should take notice of this, as it may be necessary for supervisors to avail themselves of the piwas-ions of this act before the postmasters have time to receive official notification of its passage from the postoffice department. � _ A Boarding SclioolTor liidiaiis. Washington, May 23.-The Indian office has instructed Lidian Agent Rust at C'olton, Cal., to report upon the advisability of establishing a boarding school for the Mission Indians, and uiioii which reservation it should be located.

Yuma and that is carried on for the benefit of the Arizona Indians. rr STEAL AS A A Plot for Seizing Officials in Lower California and proclaim: independence.

Manley says Mr. Blaiiio has entirely abandoned the ideathat he can ever be elected president. Jones' Silver Bill. London, May 23.-Mr. Henry H.

A number of prominent capitalists interested in Lower California lands and mines, and well-known citizens of Los Angeles and San Diego, are involved, according to the revelations. San Diego appears to have been the headquarters of the filibusterers.

The large warehouse of an English company at Ensenada was to be." filled with firearms, ammxmition and provi.sions, for the use of The RevoliitlonlKts. The officers of the English company claim that the policy,of the Mexican officials in Lower California has been ruinous to the land interests of the company, which has been obliged to expend thousands of dollars in protecting its interests, an'l the salvation of the country, they assert, finally depends iipon securing the annexation. A lobby has been working at Washington in the company's interest, but as the prospects of congressional action were unfavorable a filibustei-ing expedition was agi-eed upon. Two propositions were discussed. One was To Capt ire Ensenada, the other wjis to introduce a large number of Americans on the peninsula, ostensibly as laborers, to capture the Mexican man-of-war Democarta, and at the same time give a picnic in honor of the Mexican officials, and in the midst of the festivities cajiture the gan-ison and seize the roads and telegraph lines.
