TREATMENT OF REFUGEES.
UMnAFFV HBBREW8 NOT TO BECOME
A rUMXIC CHARGE.
Solving: a Difficult and Delicate Immlcni
tion Problem Volley of tlio United
"States Govornmont Toward Jewish
Secretary of Treasury Foster yesterday
sent tho following Interesting letter to Simon
Wolf, chairman, and Lewis Abraham, secre
tary, of tho Union of American Hebrew Con
gregations: Gentlemen: I beg leave to acknowledge
receipt of your communication of tho 27th
ultimo with its inclosurcs as stated.
You call my attention to the bitter hardship
suffered by many thousands of Hebrews by
reason of their forcible expulsion from their
homes in the Russian Empire, and you state
among other things that tnero is no organiza
tion in tho United States, which assists or
encourages destitute Hebrew refugees to come
to this country: that you deplore this form of
immigration; that the efforts of tho several
nebrow societies represented by you are con
fined to ameliorating the condition of these
unhappy people after their arrival at Ameri
can ports by relieving those in distress and
aiding all to avoid massing in the seaboard
cities and to distribute themselves to widely
separated localities, where they may as soon
as possible become self-sustaining. You state
that you have no complaint to mako in con
nection with the official treatment of refugees
who have already arrived, and that you do
not apprehend any future cause for complaint
in this regard; but you urge tho consideration
that practically enforced immigration of this
nature cannot bo classed as "assisted" immi
gration within the meaning of our laws, and
finally you declare tho readiness of the people
and associations for whom you speak to give
to the Government in all cases a satisfactory
bond guaranteeing that none of these refugee
Immigrants shall become a public charge.
Be assured, gentlemen, that I fully concur
in your estimate of the magnitude of the
present calamity which has befallen so many
of your race, as well as in your hope that an
early mitigation or cessation of the current
measures of expulsion may render unneces
sary any general migration of Russian He
brews to America or elsewhere. Unquestion
ably a great and sudden influx of expatriated
and destitute aliens of any race would be a
grave misfortune to any country, and Ameri
can Hebrews act both patriotically and
humanely when they advise Jewish refugees
against coming hither, but at the same time
endeavor to render self-supporting those who
finally come. Obviously the support of great
numbers of dependent persons is a tax upon
the resources of the countro, even though
paid from private funds, and, quite as
plainly, industrial conditions here might bo
seriously disturbed by the sudden arrival and
the enforced competition of a multitude of
Hence it 1b important to the last degree that
the volume of this expected refugee immigra
tion be not excessive or threatening, and. that,
with entire certainty,It be promptly and widely
distributed, so as to supply a real want in
scattering communities, and interfere as little
as possible with .existing and normal indus
trial conditions. The apparent scope and
thoroughness of your plans for securing this
immediate and wide distribution of the ex
pected refugees are most gratifying, and upon
the success of your associations in carrying
out these plans will largely depend the possi
bility of the Government meeting your views
in other respects.
While tho immigration laws of the United
States must and will be enforced, I agree with
you that those law6 were never enacted in
derogation of the plain requirements of hu
manity, and no worthy immigrant, who in all
otber respects meets the demands of our stat
utes, should be excluded from the country
Decause, tnrougn,tno action ot otners, ne is
for tho time being homeless and without prop
erty. I shall rely upon your voluntary assurance
that you will actively urge upon your brethren
in Europe the attitude of our I laws toward
assisted immigration. I also beg to remind
you that any tendency abroad to deflect
toward this country the movement of desti
tute refugees, or to stimulate their migration
hither, would be distinctly hostile to the
spirit manifested in your letter, and to the
spirit In which the Government of the United
States desires to treat this difficult and deli
Thanking you for your expressions of con
fidence that this Department, while executing
the immigration laws efficiently, will also
execute them humanely, I am,

RUSSIA'S TOLICY TOWARD THE JEWS.
Copyright by Associated Press.
Berlin, Aug. 1. A fresh decision of tho
Russian Government concerning Its policy
toward the Jews debars tho children of He
brews not having the right of sojourn in Rus
sia, or the residents of any Russian district,
without a permit, from admission to the
middle and higher schools. Tho Novoe
Vretnya to-day, in announcing that this order
will take effect at the commencement of the
next scholastic year, praises tho regulation as
assisting to reduce the Jews to their natural
social level. Tho influx of Jewish emigrants
into Germany is rapidly abating. This Is
partly owing to tho stricter official supervis
ion. Hundreds of these emigrants have been
sent back to Russia on tho ground that they
had fraudulent passports, or that they did not
possess means to proceed to their destinations
outside of Germany,
A CRISIS WAS AVERTED.
The Pope Had to Delay His Draft for
$2,000,000 St. Peter's l'encc.
PARI6, Aug. 1. A dispatch to the Figaro
from Rome Bays that some excitement wa6
occasioned in banking circles in that city to
day by the threatened suspension of the Bank
of Rome, an old Catholic institution. The
trouble arose over an order from the Pope for
the withdrawal of $2,000,000 deposited in the
bank to the credit of St. Peter's Pence. Not
having the necessary funds on hand to meet
this order when it was received, the Bank of
Rome notified his Holiness of the situation of
affairs, and requested that he issue an order
countermanding the first one. The officials of
the National Bank heard of tho difficulty in
which tho Bank of Rome was placed and
offered to assist the latter in any way in their
power. For a time it was feared that serious
trouble would resultfrom the 6udden demand
for such a largo sum, but happily a crisis was
averted by tho Pope delaying the 'withdrawal
of the 2,000,000. ,

CHILI'S NEW PRESIDENT.
Tho Man Whom Dictator llnlmacodaHas
Ilnd Eloctcrt to Succeed Himself,
Tho electoral college of Chili has con
firmed tho olectlon of Claudlo Vicuna as
President ot tho republic from tho 18th of
September, 1S91, to tho 6amo date 1800, a pe
riod of fivo years. Frestdcnt elect Vicuna is
a friend of Frestdcnt Balmaccda and is
elected with his approval. Vicuna was born
in Santiago in 1833, a year memorable for
giving birth to tho present constitution of
Chili. His father. Iguacto Vicuna, was a
member of tho historic family who gavo to
Chili tho eminent Archbishop Manual Vicuna;
a President of tho republic. Francisco Bamon
Vicuna; a statesman, historian and liberal
reformer, Pedro Feliso Vicuna; and a pa
triot and illustrious citizen, Benjamin Vicuna
MacKenua, the first President elected. President-elect
Vicuna Is a man of great attain
ments, but is at the samo time eminently
practical and energetic. Ho devoted the
early portion of his life to the study of agri
culture on a large farm where he introduced
many important improvements, which have
been generally adopted throughout tho coun
try. Among" these were agricultural steam
motors for various purposes for use in tho
field. He has traveled extensively in Eu
rope and Is considered by his countrymen to
have every quality for governing Chill with
sagacity, moderation and patriotism. It is to
be" hoped that tho wise administration of
Claudlo Vicuna will see the end of the fratri
cidal war which has raged for so long 1m his
countiy, and there is every reason to believe
that such will be the case. We are enabled
to furnish our readers with these particulars
through the courtesv of Mr. Remon Voles,

A BIG ORE DEAIi.
A Combination Repreeentinp; Abont
Duluth, Minn., Aug. 1. The reported
consolidation of the Chicago and Minnesota
Ore Company with the Minnesota Iron Com
pany, which owns tho Tower Mines and Du
luth and Iron Ranee Railway, turns out to be
a much largor deal than at first reported.
The Chicago and Minnesota Ore Company
and tho Chandler, Chippewa, Norma, Dela
ware, and Canton Iron Companies, as well aB
the Duluth and Iron Range Railway and tho
Minnesota Steamship Company are all owned
in great part by the stockholders of the Min
nesota Iron Company. It Is proposed to con
solidate all these into one company, which
will own every mine at present shipping ore,
the Duluth and Iron Range Road, and a total
land holding of about 40,000 acres.
The combined capital will be about $17,000,
000. Tho Chicago and Minnesota Company
owns 27,300 acres of mineral land of the
Vermillion range and controls the stock of
the Chandler Iron Company, which made
$500,000 last year. The new deal turns tho
Chicago and Minnesota Company at about $90
a 6hare. Tho Minnesota Company alone has
nearly 100 acres of good iron bearing lands
in township 02, range 14, and is contesting
directly or indirectly several claims that will
no doubt be very valuable, but much of Its
lands are like hundreds of other claims, un
tested, and therefore doubtful. This combi
nation does not own half of the best prospec
tive iron lands, nor the Macober, "Sheridan
Seen It," No. 20, Great Northern, McDonald
or Anderson, on the Vermillion, or the
Me6sha syndicate, Mallan, Myrna or Mount
ain iron company.
NATIVITY OP COLUMBUS.
The Question Revived With All Its An

The approach of the four hundredth anni
versary of the discovery of America has re
vived the controversy which has been carried
on for more than two hundred years concern
ing tho birth place of Christopher Columbus.
The good people of Corsica are again advanc
ing their claims in a zealous manner, and
meet with considerable success in some
quarters. Several papers on the subject have
recently been contributed to the French
press, and disclose evidence in favor of tho
claims of Calvi, the chief city of Corsica,
that has not been generally known to the
The documentary and othor proofs brought
forward are beglnnig to attract considerable
attention among tho scholars of Europe, and
at the next meeting of the "Congress of
Americanists," an international society do
voted to the study of Americau history, it is
probable that tho whole question of the na
tivity of the discoverer will bo revived with
all its ancient zeal and animosities. The most
recent and effective argument on the subject
is presented in a book lately published by tho
AbbePeretti, of Corsica, entitled: "Christo
pher Columbus; Frenchman, Corslcan and
Calvlan; a historical study of the nativity of
the great admiral of the ocean."
The Late Mvs. Simon Wolf.
The funera) of Mrs. Caroline Halm Wolf,
wife of Hon. Simon Wolf, was solemnized
Friday at her late residence, 1125 Fifth street,
Rev. Dr. L. Stern officiating. None but tho
immediate members of the family were present
at the service, which was very Impressive.
The pallbearers were Messrs. A. S. Solomons,
Henry Franc, John L. Vogt, Charles W.
Handy. George F. Schaefer, nenry Adler,
Cbarles Clandy and General W. A. Knapp. A
number of Mrs. Wolf's relatives came on
from New York and Philadelphia to attend

blow to her family and to the large circle of
loving friends, who had learned to appreciate
the many admirable traits of her character.
The bereaved husband and children have gen

capitalists cannot fail to bring about such a
restoration of confidence as will speedily aug

The writer of the financial articles recently
published by The Sunday Herald was grat
ified to find that his anecdote, entitled "This,
too, will passaway," quoted from the historian
Allison, with tho author's philosophic reflec
tions thereon, published July 19th ultimo.,
found its way into the ably-written circular of
Hambleton fc Co., of Baltimore, issued yester
day. The paragraph In question was tele
graphed over toNew York on a special stock
Avire and was caught up by the different
operators in tho various stock offices through
which it passed, and published with this
writer's assent in Baltimore.
The of quoted truism, "History repeats it
self," finds no more striking exemplification
than In the fact that the so-called panic of
last autumn was brought about by precisely
similar conditions to those which prevailed
prior to 1825 when occurred in England a
panic which, by reason of Its severity and far
reaching results, Is known as "tho panic."
In 1823 the Government of Great Britain
concluded that 5 per cent, was too largo a
rate of Interest to pay in a time of profound
peace on the vast debt which had accumu
lated before and during the Napoleonic wars.
It was resolved, therefore, to reduce the rate to
3 per cent,, offerinc the money to those who
elected not to renew their bonds. Thousands
took tho cash, and in order not to leave It
idle yielded to the .Invitation of plausible ad
venturers, and Invested their funds in every
sort of chimerical scheme brought to their
attention, very largely in loans to South
American republics, as well as In commercial
enterprises to modern minds so absurd as to
be absolutely ludicrous.
Among tho articles which some commercial
companies exported to the tropics were skates
and warming-pans. Now for tho parallel in
our own day: In April, 1889, Mr. Groshon,
one of tho ablest financiers England has ever
produced, taking advantage of a condition of
unusual ease In tho money maiket, gave no
tice toj the holders of consols, bearing 3 per
cent, interest, that tho Government would
grant tho holders the privilege of renewal for
one year at 22 per cent, and after that for
thirty-six years at 2 per cent.
A large number toolt their cash, declining
to renew, and made U60 of it in much tho
same way as did their grandfathers in 1825,
in South American investments. In a little
more than eighteen months a llko result fol
lowed; exchanges became largely against
England and the greatest financial distress
followed imaginable, and but for the timely
aid which this country so liberally afforded,
the disaster would have eaualed that of 1825.
Testimony given by an able financier before
a Parllmentary committee inquiring Into tho
causes which led to the panic, but for tho uso
of tho name of Pool & Co., instead of that of
a great English houso aided by tho Bank of
England last autumn, would have seemed to
have been written yesterday. The evidence
went on to attribute the panic to the failure of
the bankers above named because of their
ovei-confidenco in South American loans and
Celestials Must Show Certificates,
Tho Secretary of the Treasury has Issued a
circular to customs officers promulgating tho
decision of tho United States Supremo Court
in the case of Wan Shlng, and saying that
under this decision all Chinese, not laborers,
now resident in the United States who may
desire to visit China or other countries and
return to tho United States, will be required
to present at the port ot first arrival In the
United States, as a condition precedent to
landing, the certificate provided for by section
0 of the act approved May 0, 1883, as

HARD ON THE PROrETY CLERK.
A Suit Showing the Need of a Public Ad
ministrator. Last wook a petition was filed In tho Su
premo Court of tho District by Charle Cowles
Tucker, as administrator of David Patterson,
charging that Richard Sylvester, property
clerk of tho District, tho District Commis
sioners, and tho First Comptroller of tho
Treasury, had wrongfully and Illegally with
held from tho claimant aforesaid and other
parties, tho sum of $050.10 tho property of
Property Clerk Sylvester, In whoso charge
tho money was placed, has sent a letter to tho
Commissioners in relation to the wbolo mat
ter. Ho says in sitbstaucc: "With reference
to tho communication of CharleB Cowles
Tucker, dated March 3, 1S91, addressed to tho
Hon. Commissioners, and herewith inclosed,
I havo to stato that Coroner Patterson did on
July 19, 1884, moke formal return to me, as
property clerk, of a sum or money amounting

turn, was in duo form, required by tho regula
tions governing tho police department, and
recited tho finding of tho property In prem
ises wherein tbo coroner was called to offi
cially investigate tho cause of his death and
view tho remains of one David Patterson In
the Federal Building. No friends, relatives,
acquaintances, or person employed as serv
ant by tho deceased, presented or asserted
any claim to the property so lecovered or re
claimed, at or about or 6inco that time. Tho
remains of Patterson wcro burled, and. as
heretofore 6tated, his abandoned possessions
were returned to tho legal custoJian of lost,
stolen, and abondoned property. The coroner
was further guided In such action by an order
of tho Commissioners, dated July 22, 1S79,
requiring him to turn over property of de
ceased paupeis and others to tho property
clerk, and take his receipt for tho same.
Upon receipt of tho deposit, tho property
clerk rendered the required receipt for tho
same, and registered tho amount in tho record
designated by law: 'Abandoned, David Pat
terson, deceased, room in Federal Building.'
"Under Section 417, Revised Statutes ro
latlng to tho District, ' money and property
not required in court aud other than animals
and perishable property, remaining in tho cus
tody of tho property clerk for a period of six
mouths, shall be advertised, sold and the pro
ceeds deposited in the policemen's fund.'
The money in question was retained six
months, and no claimant was discovered, and
as a further precaution, and with a view to
giving any lawful claimant ample time to
come forward, the property was retained one
year and two months before it was treated as
other money and property advertised and do
posited through the District Commissioners to
tho credit of the policemen's fund.
"At this late day, nearly seven years after
tho discovery and finding of the property,
tho gentleman who alleges a palpable miscon
struction of the law on my part, discovers for
the first time a former servant of the late Mr.
Patterson, who permits him to become
indebted to bim to the extent of $100. Mr.
Tucker, the claimants attorne3T, proposes to
change what has been the practice of myself
and predecessors for years.
"If tho Police Departmeutmu6t refrain from
depositing to tho credit of the policemen's
fund lost and abandoned sums of money dis
covered upon or about tbo premises, or with
tne ettects or. tno irienuiess dead, in tue nign
ways, hedges and upon the deeerted floors and
tables of gambling deus, then new accommo
dations must bo had for the keeping, and the
books of the property clerk will never be bal
anced. The money is now a part of the police
men's fund and under the act approved Feb
ruary 25, 1885, can be withdrawn only for the
specific purposes therein declared."
Said Clerk Sylvester to The Herald repor
ter: "I am bothered frequently by peoplo
who claim to own abandoned property, but
this is the first time a suit has been brought.
Nearly every other large city of the country has
a public administrator who takes charge of all

brought. We ought by all means to havo
such an official In the District. It would be
better in every point of view. Such an offi
