T.bneco IWannfaelarera' Bonds,
Washington, May 17. The Treas
ury Department has issued the follow'
WJ3HIN0T05, D. C, May 12, 1886.
The amendatory act of March
18711, section. 14, mat -rial y cfcang d
the provisions of the law relative to
the penal sum of tobacco manufactur
ers' bonds. It fixed definitely the
minimum anu ine maximum sums,
leaving the collector to use his discre
tionary power within these limits and
to require the penal sum ol the bond
to be proportioned to the amount of
business , that the manufacturer pro
posed to do, giving him the right of
appeal to the UommiBsioner ol inter
nai Revenue. At the time of the
rag age of that act the tax on manu
factured tobacco was three times as
much as it is now. Of course, there
fore, the interests of the government
were then proportionately greater in
tobacco manufai turd, and it wai
deemed necessary to reauire a corr-
spondingly larger bond for the ful-
niiment ol the ob igations of the man
ufacturer. The regulations, series 7,
No. 8, revised, of 1885, pages 7 and 8,
prescribe a rule to be adop ed by col
lectors in computing and fixing the
pen el sum of the bond of a t.bacco
manufacturer, according to the quan
tity or iiusiness proposea to be done
by him. In accordance with this
rule, collectors are instructed, in com-
pu Kg the penal sum of such bonds,
to add to the minimum sum of JL'OCO,
for each cuttinir machine. JUOO: for
anh screw press, $100; for each by.
drauiic pr.ss.ssuu; lor each snutt mill,
uiu, and lor each Hand or other mill
or machine, $100. until the maximum
sum of 20,0 0 is reached.
JOSEPH S. MILLER, Commissioner.
Washington, May 17. There have
been many relercnces in this session
to junketing parties, and hints have
been thrown out that the special labor
committee is organized for nothing
else, said a member of that committee
to-day. "Let us look over their work.
We left Washington nineteen days
ago, and have been away from St.
. Louis ten working days. The Texas
subcommittee traveled 1980 miles in
that time, and examined 248 witnesses.
The other subcommittee traveled
about 1000 miles and examined 200
witnesses. Returning to St. Louis we
took the testimony of Martin Irons
and came home. Testimony was
taken in Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas
and Texas, and we traversed a stretch
of country reaching from Atchisoo,
Kas , to Galveston, Tex At work in
the morning at 9 o'clock and continu
ing our labors with an intermission of
an kour or two until 10 o'clock at
. night ; to catch a train and hurrying on
to the next point, so as to lose no
time -that was the order of our day.
We had two stenographers working
- constantly, and ihey have not yet been
able to write out more than a third of
tbeir notes. You can judge whether
we have beei junketing or not."
The committee desires to examine
Mr. Hoxie before turning their atten
tion to the preparation of their report.
" That gentleman fa now at Atlantic
City for the benefit of his health, and
will appear before the committee as
soon as be is physically able to do so.
Pending the submission of their report,
the individual members of the com
mittee decline to give any indication
as to its nature.
Tb. Teleptsaaa Iae.tla;atl.a.
Washington, May 17. When the
Telephonic Investigating Committee
met to-dav. Manager Marean of the
Western Union Telegraph Company
-was placed upon the stand and re.
quested to produce certain telegrams
sent and received by Mr. Young and
other gentl-min connected with the
Pan-Electric and National telephone
companies The witness declined to
-comply with the demand, for the rea
son that the subpoena was in the
natnre of a drag net or search war
rant; tbat it did not specifically de
scribe any particular messages, but
sought to discover whether any mes
sage had been sent or received by cer
tain parties. Witness remarked that
the scandalous use made of messages
produced by order of the Congression
al committee in 1S77 ought to sitisfy
the comm ttee that no such demand
should be made. The witness pro
duced and read the rule of his com
pany forbidding the delivery of mes
sages except under certain conditions,
and the committee disctmsed the
question as to whether the subpoena
served on the wit r ess fell within the
inhibition of the rule. Finallv, it was
resolvei to consi 'er the subject in
secret session, and the witness was
excused p ruling a decision on the
question as t j whether the committee
snould insist on its demand for the
Mr. Van Benthnysen then rose and
reques'ed to be heard. He said that
he wished to produce evidence bear
ing on the testimony given bv Messrs.
Sypher, HiT, Clark, Dana, Reid and
Pulitzer; that he wanted ti contra
dict testimony given by these w t
nesses and show that some of them
were unworthy of credence. He also
wished to show that the Bull company
had been engaged in conspiracy and
bad used improper means to compass
the objects, and he further desired
permission to be represented by
The committee adjourned without
action upon the request.

The Frrneb Spoliation Claims.
Washington. Mav 17. In the
Court of Claims to-day Judge Davis
delivered the decision of the court in
re'ation to the liab lity of the govern
ment for the French spoliation claims,
in which the Chief Justice and ail the
judges concur. The Court, after dis
cussing the law, is of tbe opinion that
the claims are a valid obligation
against this country which sacrificed
the rights of its individual citizens to
secure a great national advantage, and
that the treaties of 1803 and 1831 with
France, and the treatv of 1819 with
Spain, do not apply to the spoliation

frequently greatly delayed. The eov-

of revenue through the intrica ies of
the present system relating to the col-

the fraud and evasions which that
system permits and invites. It is also
he cause of mm hot the delay and

majority of the petitions are from
agricultural and dairy associations,

A sensation was caused here to-night
by the announcement that J. B. Hog
gin, the Californian, had issued orders
to withdraw his string of horses from
the track here to take them to Latonia.
No explanations were offered. Hog
gin had about twenty horses, among
them Ben Ali, the winner of the
Derby, who waa to start in the Clark
stake on Thursday. Many theories
are advanced in regard to the matter;
some say he was dissatisfied with the
pool arrangement here while others
declare he ia afraid for Ben Ali to meet
Blue Wing. Again, Hoggin's trainer
states that the removal is due to the
fact that some of the two-year-old
colts are sick and Hoggin wanted them
moved to Latonia so thy cou'd go
into training as soon as they recovered.
It is stated that the horses entered in
the Merchant stake, Fleetwood han
dicap, and the Turf stake, may le
shipped back to start in those events.
The stable left this morning.

unlawful acts, the rrert responsible
for tbis nay ba held answerab'e
for tbe loiults. Mere lockers-
on are not the ones only
but the men who advised tl.e

tbe subject Judge Rogers tdveited to
the recHUt labor troubles. He said
"J liy hive attracted tbe notice of the
countiy at large, but 1 don t want to
lay the trouble lo aay one nationality
It is not nat'onaliMep, but individuals,
that are to blame. It U not
the Irish or the Cirmars or
the BabomUns as a na'ijuHlity.
All these people love peace. Men
have a risht to strike. They have
right to quit work if they please, but
when the? co one s ep luritier and
sav that others have not the right to
work they vio'ate the law and can be
punished. It is nit only the principals
tbat may be held responsible but the
accessories as well. He or they who
s'and idly by after having advised the
violence commuted may us neia
eqntlly Mblame with the principals."
