Splendid woik Is being dono by the
ladles n ushIhUiik the relief measures.
Tho mothers have been quick to appre
ciate the sad condition of reftwes of
tho flro nnd their efforts could not bo
inoro earnest were relief needed In
their own social cliclcs.
The Ilulletlu furnished Its subset Ib
ers with the. full detail of events on
Saturday and Sunday. The Sunday Is
sue was published as a regular edition
and sent to all subscribers. The Bul
letin believes that during the piuscut
trying times It Is the first duty of the.
newspapers to keep their regular pa
trons fully Informed on the situation.
Tho Adveitlscr will announce to
nioriow that It has obtained a special
telegraphic service, giving tho latest
nuws up to the time of the sailing of
steamers from San Francisco. Tho Hnl
lutiu has had this service for thu last
twelve months and we offer congratula
tions to tho morning paper In Its pro
gressive efforts In following the Bul
letin's example. The Bulletin service
continues as before giving the people
tho latesc news from all parts of the
world up to tho hour of the steamers
departure fiom San Francisco,
It tho Hoard of Health considers It
necessary to continue its embargo on
tho Tram cars, the business houses
ought nt least to furnish some sort of
conveyances for their clerks to go to
and from business morning and even
ing. What to the general public seems
tho best solution Is for tho Board to
allow tho Tram Company to at least
make an early morning trip from tho
outside districts to tho townalso a trip
out from town at night. This would
prevent Indiscriminate riding of Asia
tics and glvo accommodation to tho
working people, now forced to walk.
In a foolish effort to save itself from
tho Ignominy of defeat In getting tho
news, tho Advertiser, charges tho Bul
letin with uttering "seif evident false
hoods." Tho Advertiser evidently ex
pects tho public to believe tho say so
of Its ponderosity. This Is also funny
nnd tho people sco tho joke. They read
the latest foreign news In Saturday
night's Bulletin, after the Advertiser
on Saturday moiulug had admitted
that It had no foreign papers. In Its
Sunday extra tho Advertiser published
tho foreign dispatches which It copied
from tho Bulletin. If tms Is a lalsu
liood, let tho Adven.ser prove its
Washington, Jan. 10. Secretary
Gago today sent to Congress his re
plies to resolutions recently Introduced
in tho Scnoto by Mr. Allen, and In the
House by Mr. Sulzer, of New York.
Tho text of his reply, which Is an ex
huustlvo exposition of the management
of that branch of the Tiensury finances
under Ills udinlniBttatlon l elating 10
national bank depositories, contains
about 9,000 words, which Is supple
mented by speclnl repot ts from de
partment ofllclnls relative to special
Inquiries .n the resolutions, Including
copies of over 1,000 letters on tho sub
ject under consideration. In summing
up his reply to thn Inquiries, the Sec
First That the reason for utilizing
national banks as depositories for pub
lic moneys ns authorized by law, when
tho receipts of tho Treasury wero ex
ceeding Us expenditures, has been to
avoid tho disturbance, to business
which tho withdrawal of largo sums of
money gave nctlvo circulation to tho
Treasury vaults must Inevitably cause.
Tho policy thus pursued by mo has
been the established policy of tho Gov
ernment for many years, and n depar
ture from It under similar conditions
would ceriaiuiy cause disastrous re
sults. "Second -The reason for dlicctlng
tho Internal revenue receipts Into de
pository hanks nt this tlmo Is that tho
revenues are now largely exceeding
disbursements from month to month,
nnd seem likely to no so for an Indefi
nite time. This condition would be a
menace to tho business world If assur
ance were not given that tills surplus
would bo diverted from tho Treasury
vaults to public depositories1 where,
Willie secure to the Government, It
would remain available to tho business
. bird The reason for directing all
tho Internal tevenuo receipts to one
depository was that It was moro .-on-veiilent
to collect the receipts of one
ofllco In one place and tho desired dis
tribution from It than to glvo Instruc
tions dally to 113 collectors. Tho most
convenient ngency to effect such dis
tribution Is a bank which Is a member
of the New York Clearing House.
"Fourth Tho icnson for selecting
the National City bank as such dis
tributing agent was that nt tho tlmo
the order was Issued It was one of the
two banks which had offered bonds
sufficient to cover the amount of tho
dally deposit. Its bond deposit was
11.000,000 ami that of tho Hanover Na
tional bank. $1,010,000. Tho National
City bank was therefore tho ono most
naturally chosen. Of the sixty-eight
nanus uppiying Tor a share of tho de
posits, tho National City bank, tho
Hnnoxcr National haulc nnd three
others, applicants for over $800,000
each, arc tho only ones out of tho sixty
eight constituting group one, which
nnvo not been supplied tho full amount
for wlilcii niey offered security.
