Syracuse, N. Y., April 7. The Stand
ard to-morrow will publish a letter ad
dressed by Postmaster Palmer of Kome, to
President Cleveland in which Palmer claims
his removal was based upon a report, the
charo.es in which he never had an opportu
nity to deny; that a chance for defending
himself had been promised, and the senate
having before it the papers submitted to
the President, did not conclude that the in
terest of the government or the vindication
of the law required a removal. The letter
thus concludes: "I would further respect
fully represent that your excellency, having
nominated to the aeuate an appointee for
postmaster in my place, and that the ap
pointment not having been withdrawn be
fnrl the adjournment of the senate, and is
s inject to its action, and while so pending
no power rests with the President to sus
pend me, and I therefore respectfully pro
test against the assumption of the same."
