While Hillsdale county is complaining that only three out of its 33 postmasters are democrats, Congressman Gorman has been rapidly securing changes in the postoffices in this district. That he is successful in other directions is indicated by the following dispatch to the Detroit Evening News: Congressman Gorman is developing a great pull with the administration. In addition to two minor places which he secured for constituents earlier in the special session, he has just been given the naming of three more officeholders, one of them of considerable importance. R. B. French, of Blissfield, began duty today as watchman in the agricultural department. On Monday Charles F. Dricffs. of Palmvra. will be signed to a place ia the postoffice department. Driggs is secretary of the democratie cora mi ttee of Lena wee county, and his aim in becoming an , officeholder is to complete his law studies, for which Washington presents exceptional facilities. The hours of lectures at the Columbia Law school are arranged with special reference to the convenience of departmental clerks, and there are many good lawyers in the country who could not have secured their professional training except through holding a government job. The third place Gorman secures is one of the three commissioners to lócate town sites in the Cherokee strip. It pays only $1,500, and the work will probably last but a few weeks. The office is a responsible one, besides presenting to the incumbent many opportunities in a legitímate direction. Chas. H. Burroughs, of Clinton, Lenawee county, gets the place. He is the manufacturer of a popular brand of chewing gum, which he can now introduce to the dark-complexioned girls of the Indian territory. It is further saidthat Mr. Gorman has secured for Michigan another and one of the most important offfices she has yet received. It will be announced in a few days.
