WASiirNOTOK, Dec. 5. At a moetintr of
the committee on expenditures in the de
partment of justice to-day, Chairman
Springer read a letter from J. J. Barker, a
former treasury clerk, reiterating the char
ges made by him some time ago against the
management of the office of the first comp
troller of the treasury department. In ex
planation of the charges Barker said that he
called the attention of tho comptroller to
what he considered illegal allowances
of per diem. He said he bad written a de
cision on the same subject. I told him his
decision had not reached tho fourth door of
his office. The comptroller told me ono bill
for per diem was outrageous and should not
bo allowed, but it was allowed. In other
cases I objected to tho payment of claims as
illegal, but they were allowed. I called tho
attention of tho division chief to certain ir
regular vouchers; and he replied it was none
of our business. There were other accounts
for 41,000 that were the result of the Star
Route trials. I told tho comptroller they
were illegal. He said ho had signed them
without examining them.
I told him I could not afford to. Then he
replied that he could not afford to because
ho had already done so. I think the attor
ney general influenced the comptroller to al
low the 11,000. I went to the chair
man of this committee and to Senators Van
"Wyck and Harrison and attempted to
have these things corrected, but I found ev
ery obstacle thrown in my way. Referring
to first comptroller, Barker said: I believe
Judge Lawrence to be honest, but he was
so exclusively engaged in tlio production of
his decisions he has not time to attend to
the details of his office.
Before adjournment the committee direct
um chairman to appoint a stib-committeo
to investigate the matters referred to bv
A resolution was adopted requesting tho
D";',' v ' "vuij luiurnisu me com

ments to United States Man-hnl Wright and
other court officials for tho southern district
of Ohio for general and special deputy mar
shals at tho congressional election in October,
and for statement of amounts allowed and
pnid on account of their services.
A resolution was also adopted directing
the chairman to request the attorney general
to furnish tho committee with copies of all
correspondence between hi department and
United States Marshal "Wriiht in rpfnnnm
to the employment of United Statos deputy
marsuais ai tuc same election.

action tnken by the houso to the advance
ment of their interests.
There will bo an effort made also to pass
a bill restricting tho coinage of silver dol
lars. The annual report of the secretary of the
navy was made public to-day. Secretary
Chandler says threo new ships have been
successfully "launched, and it has been shown
that our Steele makers can readily furnish
excellent material in largo quantities, its
high quality being assured by tho tests
adopted. The department is confirmed in
tho opinion that the criticisms advanced last
year against tho new ships were of little
moment or based upon theories at variance
with the progress ot modern ship building.
Comparisons of speed between the new
cruisers and the gnjat trans-atlantic racing
steamers are unfair, oecause tho latter attain
their speed only by the sacrifice of qualities
essential to ship of war. They are unpro
tected, unwieldy, and of enormous draft and
dimensions. 1'he numbers of them possess
ing very high speed is small, and the new
cruisers could overdraw ninety-six per cent
of the merchant steamers of the world. The
rates of speed assigned tho new ships are
based on cry conscrvatho calculations of
their probable performance, and they will
undoubtedly exceed tho estimates.
Tho department in adopting the recom
mendation of the advisory board for addi
tional new vessels, calls special attention to
the necessity for torpedo boats.
. In general the secretary recommena tno
J construction of even modern cruisers annu
, ally for a period of ten years, which would
give tho country an aaequaicnay aimoucr
atc cost. In regard to tho existing navy,
Secretary Chandler says: It appears from
tho condition of the fleet that at the end of
fifteen years only the cruising vessels of the '
present list remaining will be three small iron
vessels, tho Monarch, Alert and Ranger.
Tho real explanation of the disproportion
between the expenditures and the results
accomplished in naval administration, is to
be found in the policy of attempting at
treat cost to rehabilitate wornout structures
under the name of repairs. Repair and con
struction in the the absence of a fixed limit
are terms easily inter-changeable and
the published reports of many years
show it is only too apt to mean the
second. The bureaus arc unrestricted in
their expenditures for repairs except by the
gross amonnt of their annual appropriations.
The practice of reconstructing the vessels
under the name of repair is only a pretext
under which our overgrown navy vard es
tablishments could be justified, and it ap
pears that instead of maintaining our yards
for tho advantage and benefit of our ships,
ships havo dragged out a protracted exist
ence for the benefit of tho vards.
I vxincerning me navy yarus me secretary
holds that only two naval workshops should
bo maintained' on the Atlantic coast and on
the Pacific Tho Pcniacola and Portsmouth
yards msy be kept for naval stations. The
workshops would then be at Xew York.

"Secretary Chandler next details the facts
in connection with the frauds in the bureau
1 of medicine and surgery. The amount of
buspccicu owners n i-mo, extending
over a period from 1H0 to loo. I ho surgeon-general
neglected to require the cus
tomary evidence that the goods had been re
ceived. The expenditures of the department for
tho' fiscal year ended June SO, 1884, were
$17,292,601. The estimates for the or
dinary purposes and public work
of the next fiscal year is 17,860,658,
and the estimates of the increase of the navy
are 15.071,562. Of this latter sum about I
one-halt would oe needed lor tno .coming
fiscal year. The secretary comments severe
ly upon tho existing practice of securing the
solicitations of persons possessed of political
or social influence in behalf of officers,
whether for the purpose of obtaining agree
able duty or affecting the restoration by
legislation of those who have been dismissed
for drunkenness or other misconduct or in
capacity. In discuasinir this subisct ho refers
to the presidents veto message on tho Fitz
John Porter bill as nointinir out the uncon
stitutionality of such legislation and show
ing tho constitution has provided ancnectuai
barrier to any restoration by the legislature
of particular officers.
In conclusion Secretary Chandler dwells
upon the close connection between the im
provement of the navy and the development
of the merchant marine, and shows that to
mako the latter commensurate with our trade
on our co.v t line and the number and wealth
of our commercial cities, wo must have great
lines of ocean steamships of high speed and
large capacity, carrying our flag to the most
distant lands ana savinc to our people tne
vast profits of tho carrying trade. The only
way to accomplish this result he
says is through the direct encouragement
given by the government either in the form
of bounties upon the construction or pay
ment for carrying mails, so that American
capitalists will be induced to embark in the
business. Tho recent enactment repealing
tho laws requiring all American vessels ar
bitrary to carry foreign mails, ho sayi,
should be supplemented by a provision that
contracts for carrying such mails on Ameri
can lines of steamers, over all the principal
ocean highways, should bo let for terms of
years to the lowest bidder at an adequati
compensation therefor, to be paid by the
government on tho same principle as that
adopted in establishing our great national
post routes on tho land.
Chancinc the system of compensating tho
United States court officials was discussed
by the house committeo on expenditure in
tho department of justice to-day. The
chairman said he had been informed the
senators v, ere opposed to any bill proposing
a change which was iri'crted in the appro
propriation bill, but they would favor a
measure, if introduced in the house, that
had for its object only the changing of the
fee to the salary system. As the result of
tho expression of opinion by the senators,
Representative Springer on tho third Mon
day in January will probably introduce the
bifl prepared by his committee at the last
session of congress and ask its passage under
a suspension cf rules.
In tho Swaim court martial to-day the ex
amination of Bateman was continued, but
the witncr-s was frequently interrupted by
objections from tho counsel, and finally a
long argument begun upon the admissibili
ty of certain evidence, which was not con
cluded when the court adjourned.
Judgo Lawrence, first comptroller, in re
lation to tho testimony before the Springer
committeo says tlio complaints nearly all re
late to accounts of tho dUttict attorneys,
clerks and marshals. These aro all sworn to
by those officers, then submitted to and ap
proved by the court in the presence of tho
district attorney, whoso duty it is to object
to any laUo or illegal item. These accounts
were all approved by first auditor. Com
plaint is therefore against the officers, their
oaths, the court, tho auditor and last the
comptroller's office. It is more likely one
man should bo mistaken than all these. As
to expenses in tho star route cases, they were
approved by tho attorney general, whoso ap
proval is conclusive. As to deputy marshals
at elections, thov were only paid for half the
time allowed by law, tfio accounts were
sworn to and approved by court, and the
marshal had solo control of tho timo thoy
should serve. But one man in tho United
States has ever said that I allowed an il
legal and extravagant charge, and he says I
am honest. I have found many men who
havo complained that 1 refused to allow
claims which they regarded as just and legal.

New Orleans, Dec. 5. Picayune's Baton

ing: I am compelled, owing to tho failure
of the city council to provide me with the

to testify truthfully. Whether their refusal
to speak is owing to intimidation or other
cause, we cannot discover. Wo have left

guilty parties, but in the meantime I think
that there should be and I hope you will
cause a reward to be issued for any informa
tion that will lead to the conviction of the

Cincinnati, Dec. 5. In the case of W.

Hocking Valley & Toledo railroad company,
Judgo Baxter, of tho United States court,

and Judgo Stevenon Burks, its vice presi
dent, to appear before him on December
loth at Columbus, Ohio, to show cause why
they shall not be attached and punished for
contempt in disobeying the injunction grant
ed lii't nock. That injunction commanded
tho defendant to furnish cars to Rend &
Co., and to carry their coal without delay
and without discrimination. It was shown
to tho court that the company furnished care
but refused to give complainants through
rates on through cars, but demanded pre
payment of local rates and reloading at the
end of defendant's line, contrary to the usage
of that company in its general treatment of

Nkw York, Dec 5. The Sun, in a no
table double-loaded editorial, discusses the
question of "our coming national currency,"
and reaches the conclusion that the national
bank currency must go and givo place to a
government currency of coin and paper
money. Tho article notes carefully the rapid
decrease of the national bank circulation,
the more rapid increase in coin and coin cer
tificates, and says: "This will give us by
1891 a grand total of $1,135,000,000 of gov
ernment currency against not more than
$100,000,000, and probably less, supplied by
tho banks. Of courso much may happen to
modify or prevent this result. The conduct
of men cannot be predicted so confidently
as that of inanimate things. The legal ten
der maybe redeemed and withdrawn; the
coinage of silver dollars may be suspended
and the supply of gold may bo di
minished at the mines or drained
away to foreign countries. Tho decrease of
national bank circulation may, on the other
hand.be checktd by favoring legislation,
but the probabilities are greatly against
these events; and, as wo said at the outset, it
is much more likely that national bank
notes will be dr.ven out of use altogether,
and their place taken by an exclusively gov
ernment currency. The existence of na
tional bank circulation, it must be remem
bered, depends entirely upon the profit it
yields tho banks. These institutions arc con
ducted upon commercial and not on philan
tropic principles. So long as the bonds re
quired as security for their circulation bear
a sufficiently high rate of interest they will
issuo tho notes, but so soon as tho noto falls
below tho passing point tho circulation
will be withdrawn. At present tboro
are enough 3 per cents to bo had at about
par to make it worth while to take out cir
culation upon them, but these bonds, as we
know, will all soon bo paid off, and the
comptroller of the currency tells us that tho

surely bo redeemed at their maturity in 1891,
and the 4s aro rising in price continually
under the competition for them by execu
tors, trustees, savings institutions and timid
investors. That tho people of the United
States will for the sake of tho banks sanction
any legislation by which either tho national
debt shall be prolonged or the interest upon
it be increased. It is idlo to suppose that
they will permit banks to issue circulation on
any less secure a basis than are United
States bonds is not to bo thought of.
It is equally incredible that there is no es
cape, that we can see from tho hard logic of
facts. Tho national bank currency must go
and that pretty soon. Of the possibility of
tho retirement of tho legal tender note3 by
redemption and cancellation there is no in
dication. Tho contracting of them n this
way was stopped in 1878 by popular clamor,
and, as we have already remarked, they
havo remained fixed at their present amount
ever since, without efforts of cither political
party to reduce it. The same may be said
of tho coinage of silver dollars. "Every at
tempt to check or suspend it has hitherto
been abortive The west almost unani
mously favors it, and will support it to the
last. As to the danger that tho withdrawal
of bank circulation may cause a monetary
stringency concerning which so much
solicitude has been expressed in
various quarters, it need only
be remarked that the coinage of gold and sil
ver alone will more than fllfany vacuum that
is occasioned, whether the coin goes into cir
culation as coin or government recoipU for
coin delvierable on demand is immaterial.
There is sure to bo circulating me
diums enough for the needs ot tho com
munity at the worst. Supposing the amount
of it to be reduced bv an unusual foreign
demand exceeding tho products of our
mines; we shall have always, as we had dur
ing the war, the resource" of legal tender
notes, especially since the issue of them has
been declared by tho supreme court to be
constitutional exercise of government power.
We shall always do well to remember that
the natural forces have been stronger than
legislation, and that the common sense of
events constantly sets aside the transcenden
tal reasoning of theories and philosophers.
Dover, X. IL, Dec. 6. Stephen Young,
of Stafford, had a party last night. There
was dynamite for blasting purposes on a
shelf. Ono of the party, to scare tho rc-t,
fired off a revolver, and tho jar caused an
explosion of the dynamite. The house was
blown to atoms and burned up. Ono person
a Frenc hman employed by Young, was
killed outright and seven persons were
wounded. Bonds to tbe amount of $50,000
and an amount of railroad stock were de
stroyed. Miss Sadie Greenfield of Roches
ter, was blown through a window and her
head cut open. Several of those injured will
probably die. Among them is Dr. Stephen
Young, of Rochester, and his uncle, Stephen
Young, at whoso houe the explosion oc
curred. Of the eight perscn injured, George L.
Goodwin has died. Of the seven survivors
it is doubtful if any will recover except Miss
Sadie Greenfield." To-night the death of
George Young, Mary Ann Young, Zacbarv
F. Berry and Joseph May are expected
every moment. Kll Ready, heretofore
thought only slightly injured, is growing
rapidly worse from internal burns. Steph
