Washington, July 6.—Mar-
shal Lake, of Mississippi, is
here on his way back from A1
bany, where He carried some
Federal convicts. The Repub-
licans are fighting over bis place.
There appeals to be no special
charges against him, but mauy
statements more or less dama-
ging are all annoyed to the mar-

of'G. Wiley Wells as consul to

The revenue from the tobacco
tax has increased during the
past eleven months one-fourth
of a million dollars.
The cabinet session to-day
was mainly devoted to conversa-
tion ami informal discussions on
the President’s recent order,
prohibiting Federal officers from
participation in the management
of political committees and con-
ventions, with especial reference
to the question whether it should
he enforced against the officials
who took part in the Iowa con-
vention, and whether Post Mas-
ter General Key correctly inter-
preted the purpose of Lie order
in his yesterday’s letter to the
Madison, Wisconsin, postmas-
ter. No information was taken
on the subjects involved, but it
was agreed that the letter of the
Postmaster General was a cor-
rect and judicious statement of
the meaning of the order, in re-
gard to cases like the one pre-
sented from Wisconsin, and that
while the order should he firm-
ly maintained and impartially
enforced, there is no occasion to
apply it to the Iowa officehold-
ers, who were elected as mem-
bers of the convention before it
was issued, and who probably
took.their seats before it reach-
ed them by mail.
In the cabinet, a letter accred-
iting Signor Malta as minister
| from the Diaz government; was.
i read, and was the subject of
• chtisiderable discussion. It was
a friendly and pleasant docu-
ment, hut the contents received
no further attention than a
respectful listening to, as it was
not regarded advisable at pres-
ent to take any action, beyond a
reference to the State depart-
ment, by which it was presented
to the cabinet.

The Times has the following
trom Bucharest: It is stated
here that over one hundred and
twenty thousand Russians have
crossed the Danube at Siminitza,
where an immense train of ar-
tillery are concentrated, com
prising some pieces of very
heavy calibre. The enthusiasm
of the Russian troops is very
great. The cavalry marches
twenty kalometres in advance of
the infantry. As the Turks have
no proportionate amount of cav-
alry, the Russians are scouring
the country up to the Balkans.
The Turkish outposts are at
Pautra, which is their, present
advanced line. The center of
their army is near Razzola, the
right covering Rustohuk, and
the left stretching towards
Shumla. It is reported that
only twelve tbousaud men are
left in Silistr'a.

garia will probably he fought on
