DEFRAUDING) T1IK QOVEHXMEXT.
It has been discovered that the
American Government has been
paying from 100 to 300 percent
more than the market price for the
various articles needed in public
buildings in New York. The frauds
were effected by collusion between
the contractor for supplies and
clerks in the Treasury Department.
An investigation under way" is likely
to lead to the resignation or sum
mary dismissal of the guilty em
ployees of the Government. Secre
tary Manning has directed Collector
Ilcddcn to stop buying of contractors
and buy in the open market,

A 'Washington correspondent tele
graphs: The President's message
has been substantially completed in
its most important parts. One ques
tion on which he is likely to dis
agree with the Democratic majority
in the House is the proposed sus
pension of silver coinage and the
equalization of the silver with the
gold dollar. It is known that he
adheres to the policy of his letter
addressed to Bland, Warner and
Regan, on the 27th of February,
1885, and is prepared to enforce the
arguments then used by the experi
ence of the Treasury during the last
six months. On an up and down
vote to repeal the Bland Act, pure
and simple, there is a known majo
rity against that proposition.
The Patrons of Husbandry, in
national convention at Boston,
adopted the following resolution:
' 'Resolved, That the National
Grange, assembled in annual session
cnteis its protest against the present
policy of American manufacturers
in pursuing a free trade policy in
the admission of raw material and
high protection on manufactures,
which strikes directly at American
farmers and producers of the soil."
A committee was appointed to at
tend the coming session of Congress
to secure legislation in the interest
HOW THI AVIKI) IS IIAISl'D.
At a recent session of the Com
mittee of the New York State Senate
making an investigation into the city
government, two stenographers of
Civil District Courts testified to pay
ing money liberally out of their
salary toward election expenses and
for other purposes. George Strass
ner, attached to Judge McCarthy's
Court, said he paid in this way
81,200 a year out of his salary of
$2,000. When he stopped these pay
ments he was discharged. Maurice
J. O'Connor, stenographer in Judge
William Kelly's Court, testilied to an
almost exactly similar experience.
AN UX-3IAYOU MURDEIIUD.
John B. Bowman, an ex-mayor
and about the richest man of East
St. Louis, 111.', was murdered near
his own house, on Nov. 20th. He
was returning home from Belleville,
and shot from behind and instantly
killed by an unknown man who way
laid him. Bowman was n noted
politician, who bad passed through
many acrimonious and blood-stained
conflicts, besides being very much
given to litigation.
Till! AMERICAN REFINERY.
The Sacramento Transportation
Company has a contract to deliver
some 6,000,000 bricks by the 1st of
January at Section 4 of the seawall
to be used in building the new works
of the American Sugar Refinery.
The bricks are made at the com
pany's brickyards near Frccport,
below Sacramento, and are brought
hero on the company's barges at the
rate of two loads a week, each barge
carrying about 200,000 bricks. Some
2,000,000 have been delivered.

llll" SUOAR MARKET.
The San Francisco Jiulletin of
Nov. 4th says in its commercial
article: The drop in sugars, men
tioned in this column yesterday,
continues to be a topic of conversa
tion in trade circles. It is intimated
that the reduction was made to woik
off an accumulation of stock in the
hands of the California Refinery. It
is also intimated that neither refinery
has adhered to the schedule of
September 18th during the last six
weeks. This is quite probable, and
is nothing new for the refineries, or
for any other manufacturers. A
card rate is one thing, and the actual
belling price is often quite another.
Experience has long since demon
strated the impracticability of a
cuflt-irou rate it rate that- iaudike
applicable to all lands of customers,
nil soils of localities and all sizes of
orders. We say such i rale is not
possible, because we know tho cus
tom is otherwise. Small buyers arc
not treated tho same as large ones,
and those who have the reputation
of paying promptly arc generally
known at court and leap the advan
tage duo to their high credit. Card
rales aie open to all, and no buyer
can be turned away who offers to
take the goods at those rates. But
this docs not prevent the seller from
offering better terms to preferred
buyers, who take laigor quantities
and pay promptly.
In its issue of the 21st Nov. the
same paper says: The recent radi
cal reduction in the price of refined
sugar in this market has not led to
that degree of activity which was
expected. The pi ice is unusually
low, and it is difficult to sec how it
can be made lower. Still, this is
not the season for a large consump
tion of sugar. The jobbing trade
always falls off at this season of the
year, and this is especially the case
with sugar. In addition, it is anti
cipated that there will be a sharp
competition for trade early in the
spring between the two local refiner
ies. The relations of these refiner
ies arc totally different from what
they have been. Until a few months
ago, they worked in perfect harmony.
There is no difference in the selling
prices at present. But the American
Refinery is bound to go after some
of the California Refinery's trade
next season, and the California
Refinery will undoubtedly resist
every encroachment on what it con
siders to be its domain. This anti
cipated rivalry is what prevents job
beis from carrying much sugar at
present even at current low rates.
