President Cleveland intended to appoint Mr. .Wilson to the position lias been known for several days to the most intimate friends of Mr. Wilson and to Mr. Wilson himself. The selection is one- which the president made of his own motion, without any urging from ^Ir. Wilson's friends, and largely in recognition of thcrnember's services in luading thu'tarill' fight in the house. Jlud 11 Ha u il In Them All. \ In the four congressional eras of recent tariff changes—the Morrison bill, the Mills bill, the McKin'.cy bill and tho Wilson bill—Mr. Wilson took a leading xirt.

Xo member hits been on more intimate terms with the president than has the chairman of the ways and means committee:, and his speeches in. the -house 'have always been understood to voice tho opinion, of the administration. . It was noted Wednesday that Mr. Wilson's speech upon the amendment to the post office appropriation bill to compel '• railway mail clerks to live at the end ot their rentes—perhaps the last speech he will make as a congressman —was an earnest plea- to congress to support the postmaster general. IS T o ma7i in congress had a pi-eater sonal attention", and at tnat ume' ne notified the president that sooner or later he would be compelled to retire to private "life. Nothing further passed between the two gentlemen with reference to the matter until ten days ago, when Mr. Bissell again assured the president that he must soon resign his portfolio. DeniCH Kei>ortcd Dlftucrcvinent*. In a statement made by Mr, Bissell to a representative of the United Press he says that he has found the work of the office agreeable, notwithstanding its oneronsuess. He saj-s that he leaves the department with regret and adds that his official relations with the president and his cabinet ministers have been most cordial. He denies emphatically . the reports of • disagreements between the president and his cabinet and asserts that no ministry could in its official and personal relations be more harmonious. The letter of resignation is said to have been brief, and to have been couched in the usual formal terms. It recites the fact that he deems it advisable to retire from the cabinet, and that he will do so upon the appointment and qualification of his successor. Th<? J'ri.',sldenl's Tribute.

WASOTXGIOX, Feb. 28. —Postmaster General Bissell set at rest all doubt- as XiUlonuI Council of Women Give Thin Muttor Thi.'lr Attention. • AY.vsirrs'G-TiMf, Feb. 23. — Complaints against the present system of divorce laws was the burden of Thursday's session of the National Council of Women. The entire session was devoted to this theme and a number of interesting addresses wci'c delivered before a crowded hall. This discussion \vas 3cd by the official report of the committee on divorce reform, read by Chairman Bot- telle Dieti-ick, of Massachusetts. It embodied responses received from a 7juml>er of state governors, .who were asked to call the attention of the legislatures to the status of the divorce laws, and to appoint a committee to consist of an equal number of men and women to consider the matter. The question, the report said, was one wholly concerning the happiness and welfare of 'tp.OOO.UOO people, and of whom half are of the female sex, nnd added: ''Women should thoughtfully consider the significance ' of the fact that thirty - one of these masculine servants of the people made no response to this just, request of representative women: /Only two, Greenhiuifc, of Massachusetts, and Brown, of Rhode Island, promised to doall in their power to carry out the request. Thegovernorof South Carolina wrote that that state had no divorce laws and. its people we.rc better satisfied than their neighbors, whose states have divorce laws. The report said that the fact that twenty-three states have appointed bodies of men to tinker with divorce laws, without appointing any women, ought to show women in what estimation the men of the United States hold their opinions. The officials serving the interests of the United States cherish frank contempt for women's opinions and wishes." one drift where they h;id been overcome by the gas.
