A Game Which, Had It Been Suc

Takon (40,000,000 From the United
Treasury Regulations About Draw
backs on Jute Baffin.
How the Would-Ba SooopWas Disclosed
and Brought to an Inglorious Bnd
Alleged Payment of 18,000 for
a Treasury Ruling.
New Yojik, Juno 27. A Washington
special to the Evening W says: Tho
TreuBury Department has made an im
portant decision in regard to drawbacks on
jute bagging, which will change the regu
lations so as to require that drawbacks be
tnid only to actual exporters, and that
.rnsfactory evidence be presented to the
Iinrtuicnt that the bagging was tnado o(
imported material. The stutute relative
to drawbacks upon material of that kind
requires this, but for some reason there
bus been a marked departure from the
technical language ol the statute for
the last three years, the practice
having, grown up of allowing draw
backs simply upon tho ptesentation
of ship agents' manifests that a ccrUin
number of bales of cotton wcie exported,
without any proof that the persons w ho
exported were the owners of the cotton,
or that the jute of which the bagging was
made was iuijorted. The practice bus
grown to great proportions under a rcgula
lion issued by Assistant Secretary May
nurd. There area good many indications
that ring has been formed which in op
crating in juto-bagging drawbacks, and
that arrangements have been perfected to
con t "Sue these operations upon a much
. larger scale. Tho method of operating
seems to have been thin Tho combi
nation enter into an arrangement
by which they may obtain from
tho ship owners or Importing agents
copies of the manifest of cotton exported,
together with a power of attorney author-
, lung them to collect drawbacks. So extcn
-ive had become the operations of this
couiuinsimn liiat Its mem tiers formed
plan which, if successful, would have
taken millions from the treasury. Ihis
plan was nothing lets than lo endeavor to
collect from the Treasury Icpurtiiiunt
drawbacks upon Hie jute bagging in which
every bale of cotton had been wrapped
id exported from the close of the war to
M), or for a period ol twenty-four
years, Tho scheme appears to have
been to 'obtain from all ship agents
a.lio would furnish them lists ol the
manifests of bales of cotton exported, to
rut from lite ship agents or the exporters'
agents, as if they were the actual owners
of the cotton. iowcrs of attorney to collect
drawbacks, without having any proof as
to the actual importation of the material of
which the bagging was made, A very
hasty estimato shows that the combina
tion, if successful, might reasonably have
rx period to obtain 1 10,009,000 from the
Treasury. Hut Assistant-Secretary Ticho-
nor, who has been Investigating the sub
ject, hus decided to issue the ucw rcgula'
lions which will confine the payment of
drawbacks strictly wilhiu the liuii'u of the
Attention was Cut called to this matter
In a peculiar manner. Mont ol the owners
and shippers ol cotton in the South who
send their mcrchsnilise to .ew 1 ork from
Charleston and Savannah, do not expect
to excrciso sny further function of owner
ship alter the col ton has been delivered to
the factor, the letter from that moment
eseuiucs to stand iu III relation ol owner.
Some ol tho cotton producers learning that
considerable drawbacks were being paid,
ascertained that they were the itcrmins law
fully enlitled to the money.if sny one should
lisve It, and wrote 10 the leparttiirnl as
to tthuir rights. In some instances it
was discovered that the drawbacks bad
already been paid to other parties, where-
upon the persons lawluily entitled to the
drawback gave notice that they had a
claim against the L ulled Males for the
amount wrongfully paid. In Ihia manner
the attention of tho department was called
to this drawback combinsl.on. There was
another circumstance which did not eseaiie
Attention of the authorities. In the
llcmcnt of an estate here some months
there was a controversy ueiwecu
heirs, and one of tho Items to
Ahieli ol!ftl w tiisde was a claim of
tH.WKJ CXIK-ndcil, it was slh'ged, to secure
a certain ruling of tho Treasury iK'part
ment relative to drawbacks upon iuto bag
ging. This item hits never yet been ex
plained In tho court suit the Treas
ury authorities have obtained no
further information about It, although the
developments will be closely watched.
How ;.1,0UU could possibly have lcen ex
pended iu counertinn with a drawback
regulation cannot be understood. The
natural Inference Is that some lobby agent
imposed u on the parties in question, and
claimed that ho bad influence which he
did not possess.
The managers of the combination have
not hesitated to spend considerable sums
of money, as tliey engaged ex I'nited
Males Sc'nslor William fwkney Why to,
ol Maryland, to advocatu tho thilin that
the Treasury should allow drawbacks to
lie paid upon bsgging exported from the
close of tho w ar to date.

To all Committees Holding funds fur Kvllvf ol
Dear Sir The Johnstown Finance Com
mittee for the relict of sutTerers by the
flood would represent to you that there is
urgent necessity for tho prompt and wise
uso of the money w hich baa been gener
ously contributed by tho country for the
alleviutiou of the distress ot our suffering
people Largo as these sums of money
are, they will be uttorly inadequate to do
more than to mitigate the present distress
aud to aid this community to make aa ef
fort for self help. Their patience has been
unprecedented, and 1. 1 ore now begin
ning with courago to reconstruct, in somo
temporary fashion, shelter for their fami
lies and places in which business can be
carried on. It is impossible for the com-
mittoo, or any number of committees, to
supply this community with tho things
it needs. It is really In n9"d
ol evorvthinir. and tho onlv nrnrtienl
war ol helping it is to put into tho bunds
: ! ! ......
oi ine inuiviunui memoers oi mo com
mittee money by which they can get what
they need, not merely (or their subsistence,
but all the various requirement ol a peo
ple who are beginning life anew iikh a
devastated ' tract ol land on which their
fair city stood. Our committeo has been
in receipt of contributions of money sent
us fiom all over tho country. Wo have
used nccctsnrily a portion of this money
for the lubor incident t ) tho distribution
of supplies of food, clothing and shelter,
tho collecting ol autistic, etc We have
waited anxiously lor somo movement to
lo msdo on the part ol tho committees
throughout the country bnving largo sums
ol money in their hnn Is which would in
dicate wh; they intendod to do with those
funds. We can wait no longer. I'lio
necessity is SO great lor prompt action that
our committee lias been obliged lo adopt a
plan lor using its pittance of money lor tliu
immcdiato relief ol tho sullVrcrs.
It haa set on loot and will have com
pleted shortly an acciiralo registration ol
all the surviving stiuVrrrs, and it is pro
posed as an equitable and quick method ol
reaching the first picsaiug wants to di
vide the money which it holds equally
among them. The sum w hich will bv given
to each will necessarily be small, but it w ill
inspire them with the hoe that the larger
amounts ol money contributed I.ir their ro
lief may sjwedily become availablo, anil it
will give a better heart and a fresher hopo
to thoao who are now atrujrgling to re
establish themselves in their lost employ
ments and avocations. The position here
is as follows: The working eplo uru of
fered ample employment, and as they nro
a people who own their own homes, they
are sticking to Johnston n in spite of their
present privations. Our merchants aud
tradesmen, seeing this, are quickly open
ing their stores in lUuuUes or board build
in pi of auy tyK.
We have thus on tho ono hand com
munity needing enough supplies from tho
merchants to do a good busincia, and on
the other hand the merchanta making an
earnest effort to supply this demaud. If
wo can bring those tao together and keep
them together during the next aixly days,
our community will again be eclf-attsUin-lug.
Hut already tho inability of tho peo
plo to purchaso ia causing great depend
ency upon tho part of tho merchants
which, if not sieedily checked, will cause
further want and hopelcamicsii. There ia
but one method to check this, namely: To
furnish the people tliu funds with which
to go to the merchants and mako the pur
chases of that which will relieve them from
their suffering. Two ncods are before us:
1. To commence distribution immediately.
2. To continue it on a basis equitable to
all and satisfsctory to tho country.
The registration spoken ol abovo takes
into account merely the number ol survi
vors to be reached quickly by tiio first dis
tribution. Tim shove ia for Sed. Fol
lowing this the same machinery will col
lect this and accurate statistics so that by
the time good cllccts of the first distribu
tion have worn away wo will le ready lor
(air and equitable further distribution,
ol further sums secured based, not Uon
tho number of the Hood luirururs but upon
their respective losses.
Coincident with this distribution we are
making nil tho arrangements hero that wo
can ninke to curUui the free distribution
ol supplies of all sort, In order to cl'.tck
Wo largo evils: 1. Waste of money con
tributed by tho nation. Immense amounts
ol valuable material are coming hero, tho
very things that are not l.eedod, while the
things that are needed, tho peoplo.asws
say, are absolutely suffering for. 2. To
check the demoralizing eflect ppon the
manhood of our Inhabitants. Those who
were good men before the Hood, aro be
coming demoralised and upset by tbe (set
that they llnd they can liv without work.
Nor must they be blamed, after what they
have gone through; it is only human na
ture; nevertheless it is oinuthing to be
A I ill t o thought must convince yna that
no committee, however crfcct, can satis
factorily and wisely meet the wants of at
least 10,000 pcot'le hen each ono have dif
ferent wants. Vo will add to this another
strong argument In favor of our plan.
Granted that the nation has contributed
(l.OtiO.OiKI. Tho quicker that the money
reaches tho stiflcrers the more ol it I hey
will get. It costs moiiey to take care of the
organisation which distributes. Th more
quickly this organization ctiecl lis pur
jHieo tho greater tho pcrcentsgo ol this
assumed 11,000,000 will reach iu proper
We understand that yon are holding a
fund devoted for this p J. pose pending
somo arrangement for its proper distribu
tion. We would strongly urge you to con
sider the plan we Isv before yon, and we
would beg of you unless you ran supgeat
something better, to at once come to our
aid with your fund. Do not wait longoron
the proponod action of anvbody else, but
act at once and for yoursolt'.
If you do not approve of our plan wo
stand ready to change or amend it. Wo
atund ready to do anything that will
quickly bridgo owr tho present suite-rings
of this community. Wo urge von to send
your fund hero for local distribution, and
to send with it somo trustworthy repre
sentative, whom wo will add to our com
mittee, giving him full power to speak for
tho fund you contribute.
We urge you to send some ono prepared
to Btay with us for at least sixty days, if
not a volunteer, then somo one, whom you
can employ and pay for his services. . 'Wo
ask that you consider this carefully and
lot us hear from you very promptly. Wo
may add that our plan hus been submitted
to a full meeting of tho citixens and has
met with their unqualified and unanimous
approval. Plcaso let us hear from you
