Thoro is a story that Tanner will not accept any other government position if it is tendered him, but that ho will go into tho pension business in this city. It is nlso said that both Dud- (jy and Lemon aro already making offers lo have him join their offices. REPORT FROM THE CAPITAL.. A Day of Rnraors and CoiifiToncon Cabinet Connnltntlon. WASHINGTON CITT, Sept. 13.— Tho air is full of rumors having for their foundation tho belief that tho days of Corporal Tunner as commissioner of pensions aro numbered. The commissioner ivus absent from his post yesterday morning, and Deputy Commissioner Smith was acting in his place. It was .-(- rt *r,-i .-f 1LJ ;;^ HJ 'sviiV" wlliuu- i-n'uii TnimfM* wim expected buck at noon, but ho had not returned at 1 p. m., and this gave riso to very positive statements that ho had boon suspended. Tho common report was that Secretary Noble had said to the president that in view of the facts developed in tho investigation of the pension office by tho commission appointed by him for that purpose, —SPECIALTIES.- The Finest, Most Durable, and holds Its shape the best of any whip In the market.

BOOKS, STATIONERY and Wall Paper. CommiRHioner Tanner in office, and that if some summary action was not taken his own resignation would bo at tho president'^ disposal. Considered by tho Cabinet. Tho whole matter wns tho subject of pro- traeted conference at the executive mansion yesterday between tho president and most pf_his_cablnot_pnirorB I ; __ InforinaLoonfprr ences wore held during tho day between the president and Secretaries . Noblo and Tracy, but tho formal cabinet meeting to discuss fie matter did not convene until nearly 4 p. m., and lasted until about (5 o'clock in the evening. Secretary Noble was with tho president as early as '£ o'clock Ho brought with him the report of tho committee which has investigated re-rating in the pension office during Commissioner Tanner's administration, presumably to be used as an argument for securing tho commissioner's vacation of tho office. Members of the cabinet aro extremely reticent about what happened at the mooting. The president, however, authorized a representative ot the United Press to state that Commissioner Tanner had not been removed, and that he had not asked for the commissioner's resignation. Tanner Refuse! to Talk. Commissioner Tanner lost night declined to talk about tho imbroglio, further than to say that ho had not been, suspended and had not resigned. Efforts are undoubtedly being made to induce tho commissioner to resign, by offering him another equally lucrative and honorable position; but whether he will yield to such persuasion is not known, and further conferences and more time is needed to settle the matter. Speculation aa to a Successor. Now that it is generally believed that Commissioner Tanner will vacate or must go, rumor is rife with candidates to succeed him. Ex-Pension Agent Poole, of New York, and ox-Congressmen Brown, of Ohio, aud Thomas, of Illinois, are already mentioned, among others, for the place. Charges Against the Corporal. If Commissioner Tannor is removed from tho bead of tho pension oillce it will bo on charges of inefficiency and indiscretion, baaed on his action in making special a large 'number of pension cases, on the action ol his subordinates in making re-ratings for each other, and on tho speeches and Interviews credited to tho commissioner in the newspapers, and whoso authenticity he has not denied. The commission investigating tho re-rating in the office has reported from time to time to the secretary of the intorior the discovery of wholesale re-rating among the employes of tho office, to the partial exclusion of other pensioners. It is thought that this report will be ready lu a few days, and will be given to the public in Justification of the prosldont's action, if he should remove tho commissioner. The Vice President Consulted. Vice President Morton arrived hero yesterday from Now York, and called at tho Whito House last e> en ing while the president an:! his cabinet woro considering the caso o Pensioner CommlMiionof Tanner.
