Grand Surplus Stock Sale
at the Boston Dry Goods
House. We arc obliged to
inaugurate our Surplus Stock
Sale earlier in the season this
year than heretofore, as we
find ourselves with a large
surplus, which must be sold.
The causes which have led us
to this accumulation of Sur
plus Stock arc as follows :
First The unusually back
ward spring and the
condition of the
weather, which has
checked the demand
for Spring Fabrics.
Second Very extensive pur
chases made at .the
recent large Peremp
tory Auction Sales.
Third Overestimating our
ties, we have bought
too many seasonable
Now we propose to move
our surplus stock by reducing
the price and'distributing the
same among our. customers,
thereby turning it into cash,
feeling sure that a present
loss will ultimately result in
our future gain, and at the
same time be a decided ad
vantage to our customers,
who will no doubt appreciate
the extraordinary opportu
nity to secure excellent bar
gains, which our necessity
compels us to offer. .
We buy to sell at a profit ;
yet if we overestimate the
limit of the purchasing pub
lic we realize that nothing but
a lower price will move the
We do not wish to over
state our case, so confine our
selves to actual facts. Let
it be understood that while
many lines are to be reduced
we have a class of regular
goods which have not been,
nor will they be reduced, be
ing already marked at the
lowestpossible prices at which
they can be obtained.
May 23, and continuing
throughout the season, we
shall make such marked re

universal attention, and, we
confidently except, create an
unprecedented demand, and
result in mutual advantage.

Sccietary Manning is considering tho
necessity of giving additional room in tho
Treasury building for tho Second Comp

cramped out of all proportion to its
enormous business. It has been suggested,
with the approval of the Architect of tho
Treasury, that rooms bo designated in tlio
Smithsonian Instituto for tlio Director of
the Mint, and that tho Director's olllco in
the 1 reasury be added to tlioSccond Comp

ceived n requueat for ins resignation this

whether It was his desiro that tho resig
nation should bo tendered. The Secretary
lcplied thul ho bad not known of tho re

Tlio Wales Coiii'tOIui'lluI.
An nirof fragranco emanating from a
basket of choice cut1 llowers tilled tho
Wales Court-Martial room this morning.
Attached to tlio basket was a small
card, on which was written, in a delicato
hand, "To Mr. lllalr." Tho session of tho
court to-day was taken up wltfi tho ex
amination of Mr, John Cook of the Fourth
Auditor's olllco in regard to tlio fraudulent
vouchers of the Hureau of Medicine and
Surgery, Navy Department, accompanying
tho accounts of Pay Inspector Hicham
Washington. A number of tho vouchors
had been paid, though many wero sus
pended for the want of evidence oftho de
livery of tlio goods. The trial promises to
bo a long and tedious one, as the caso in
volves a great number of alleged culpable

It was learned at the State Department

Wakelleld G. Fryo of Maine had placed
his resignation at tho disposal of tho De

liavo become possessed of tho idea that his
action was not entirely voluntary. As Mr.
llayard expressed the situation, it seemed
as If tlio whole country up thoro was
aroused In tho interest of Mr. Frye's re
tention. A groat bundle of petitions has
been forwarded to tho President, asking
that Mr. Fryo bo continued In olllco, and
representing the desirability of his ser

Tlio telegram sent froiu Washington to

reference to the laic Odium tragedy, charg

responsibility for It, has not only much In
censed the friends of lloyton, but is con
trary to tbcgcneral opinion of Mr. Odium's

who, not knowing tho circumstances of
the cose, wcto ot first disposed to bellevo
that Odium had been persuaded Into his
perilous advenluro by bad advisers nnd
ihat he was induced lo undertake it
ngaint his own Judgment, but It is so well
known by many of Mr. Odium's acquaint
ances that lie had long contemplated this
feat nnd had fully mado up his mind to
attempt it, that It is both 0 perversion of
history nnd n gross injustlco to llovton to
make Odium appear tho victim of 'a cruel
Mr. C. W. Herbert, liitn.of St. Louis, but
now of Now York, and a friend to both
parties, said lo 11 CiiiTif loporter to-day
ihat Captain Hovtou had rciicntcdlv
warned Odium against tho probably fatal
lcsult of his leal), and did so up to the vorv
last moment. He admitted titat ltmlglit
bo successfully made, but tho chances
were a thousand to one against It, and
such was the view entertained by .Mr.
Odium's friends nnd advisers gener.illv.
Hoyton Is now sick from the exposure ho
experienced in the rescue of Odium from
the water, but has generously gone to an
expenso of several hundred dollars toward
deiioying the expenses of I1lsfu11er.il, ami
expresses the slncerest sorrow nt the inel
nncboly termination of an enterprise
which ho did nil In his power to avert.
Mr. William A. O'Mcaro of this eitv,
one of Mr, Odium's nearest friends, fully
corroborates nil thnt Mr. Herbert says',
nnd had known of the unfortunate young
man's determination for months pas't. In
deed, Mr. Odium had talked oftho matter
for two years or more. Mr. O'Mcara saw
him tho night beforo bo left for New
York nnd endeavored to dissuade him
fioiu the venture, but ho would listen to
no argument. He was bound to make the
trial and was confident of success.
Mr. Herbert also states that Mrs. Odium
ond Mrs. Smith, both of whom ho saw last
evening, are now satisfied that Captain
lloyton is not nt all (o blame, although
they bad a different impression on tho
first receipt of the shocking intelligence
of the death of their son and .brother.
They feel that their censure of Hoyton
was the impulse of the moment, and
that bo is ically entitled to exoneration
fiom tho unjust charges that have been
made against him.
THE CAPITOL APPROACHES.

The Clark investigation began prompt
ly ot 1 j). in. Colonel Jackson had in
tended lo oiler tho contracts and bonds in
the case, but would not, as they can be
intioduccd nt any time.
Edword Roncll of tho Stonecutters'
Union was sworn. He sasd that ho had
worked on tho Capitol and Postolllco
building ; worked at his trade forty years
in difllerent parts of the United States,
partly in superintending construction.
"I am familiar," he continued, "with
thcpicscnt work at the Capitol terraces.
It is not of good material and workman
ship. I havo inspected the work, and It is
not in accordance with specification, and
is not uniform in color.
Mr. Sillier objected, nnd Colonel Jack
ton renewed his demand of yesterday that
Aichitcct Clark .appear in pcroon or by
attorney. Major Jonas said this informa
tion Is for the information of Secretary
Lamar, nnd will not bo coutrollol In
forms or law. Mr. Miller said he, with
Mr. Hay, rcpicsonts Mr. Clark.
Sir. Iloncll continued: f'Tho inurblo Is
inferior in color and quality; thee faults
affect the durability ot tho work; a great
portion of the stono is not placed on its
quarry bed, or the layer face, ns it c.iino

cheaper and save labor; when so set tho

"A 'stun' can only be removed by eut

'stuns' in the Capitol terrace, and the
important blocks havo wide natural
ciacks; the line work is not true, nnd In
many places is very irregular: tho work
was finished some time last fall, nnd is
ulicndy being patched up. Such imper
fections aro regarded by good builders and
architects as very grave defects. Tho

THE FOREIGN MAIL SUBSIDY.
Sllsltila-ii Ideas or tliu SjUmmslilp Agents
That subsidy of if 100,000 to American
steamship lines continues to bo the chief
topic of interest around tho Poilolllce Do
1 artnient, wliero tho talkative agents
trcrtd 011 each other's heels In their visits
to Postmaster-General Vilas. The inoit
persistent worker is Mr. Lauterbach of
the Pacific Mail Company, who appears
to be endeavoring to solvo tho problem
on what the race-horse men call "a sys
tem." A prominent importer from New
York to-day said :
"I gather from tho conversation oftbeo
agents that they claim the Government
lias an enormous revenue from it-) foreign
moil service, aitd their idea is that the
Government should not permit tlio service
to become a mouoy-making institution,
but that tlio compensation for service
should bo increased to a point almost
equal with the receipts, so that by tbcso
means tho merchant marine would bo
built up without cost to tills country. Ono
of the agents told 1110 last night (hat
tho Income to the Government from
tho foreign mall service was $2,000,000;
tlio expenditures, ij32."),0iX); leaving an
enormous balance of S-1,075,00,). Out of
mere curiosity I looked tho matter up,
and 1 llnd the nctual receipts 011 sea post
ago aro hut $000,000. The agents muko
the mistake of calculating tho llvo cents
postage on each foreign letter as belong,
ing to tho foreign mail fund. The fact Is,
tluco cents out of the five Is placed to tho
credit of tho railway mall fund for trans
poitation to the seaboard, and as thero Is a
largo dellcleney in that fund, the three
cents is swallowed up and forgotten, leav
ing tho foreign mail service to get along
on Its two cents, These agents are sharp
fellows, but they will got captured yet."
