Doctor KcCoy Gives the
Uniform Rate of $3 a
Monti Till Omed.
This Applies to All Patients
and All Diseases.
Only during tlic summer could Doctor
.McCoy possibly make the rate or $3 a
month, covering Dentness and all dis
eases. Since the establishment of his ua
Uoual practice In Washington his patients
liave so constantly grown in number that
he lias orten seriously considered the ad
visability or limiting their number and
raising his lees charging a fee eomewbat
in proportion to the service rendered.
Tlie ouly reasons -vvlileli enable
Doctor SIcCoy to give tlio $3 rate
for the summer ruoutlis are:
First, because it Is tlie vacation
seusuu, tlie seasou -when so many of
Lis regular patients are outuf tmva
Second, because one inoiitU'rs treat
ment Jn summer, -when nature In
every way aids the ihyslclan, is
worth two moutlis of most enrelut
treatment during the severe
weather of Fall, Wiuter and Spring.

I. OYSTER'S TESTIMONY
He Is Again Before the Senate
Civil Service Committee.
PRINTING OFFICE DOINGS
Frank I. Stewart Creates n Sensa
tiou by Stating That a Relative of
ex-Secretary Morton "Was Kept on
the Hulls, Although He Was no
.Allen and Had Perjured Himself.
The investigation of the Seriate Civil
Service- Committee continued yesterday.
The witnesses-examined were Mr. Oyster,
foreman of tlie specification division of the
Government Printing Ofiicc, whose testi
mony was not concluded at tlte meeting on
Friday; Mr. Andrew Bay, a one-arrned
war veteran clerk in the Treasury Depart
ment, and Mr. Frank I. Stewart, a former
employe of the Government Printing Of
fice. Senator Morrill, of Vermont, was nn
Interested spectator during a large part
of the hearing,yeslerday. Senator Prm-h-ard,
chairman of the committee; Senator
Harris, and Commissioner Procter, of the
Civil Sen-ice Commission, were also in
Mr. Oysters testimony was heard first.
He said there were many discharges in all
administrations, andproduced figures show
ing the manges made in his own division
Under Mr. Benedict three-fourths of tlio
discharges were Republicans. Some of tl.
men dropped were among the most effi
cient in the office, and they were let out
on account of politics. The same course
bad been pursued by Mr. Palmer, and in
Mr. Oyster's division sixty-nine men, under
that chief, bad been discharged, and thirty
two resigned. Three-fourtlis of them were
On this account Mr. Oyster was certain
that the great majority of the discharges
madp under the various administrations
were for political reasons only. This re
sulted in injury to the office aud the In
troduction of the merit system was. he
said, very much better."
'Did you get your pluce under the merit
system?" asked Mr. Pritchard.
"No," replied Mr. Oyster, "I received
my appointment through tlie only method
in vogue at the time. I was given a place
in tlie office at the request of tlie late
Senator Simon Cameron. There was no
reform civil scivice then."
"In view of tlie fact, then," asked Mr.
Pritchard, "that efficient men have been
dropped for political reasons, should those
samemen be required to stand an examina
tion before reinstatement, while men who
have never passed an examination are now
retained under the reformed civil service
rulings. What is your view in thlsmatter?"
"If the record of these meiiKliowod tliem
to be efficient," said Mr. Oystei, "per
sonally, I can see no objection to their re
instatement In such manner."
Mr. Oystei said he recommended to Mr.
Benedict only two days before the office
was placed under tlie civil service that 21
out of 30 men who had been discharged and
were efficient, be reinstated. Mr. Benedict
rerusei to do this, on theground thathe had
refuse J theentrcatiesortiis friends to "pad"
the office, and would do nothing to nullify
the cl-; Kcrvice law.
Prcrtt.J-'nt Procter, of the Civil Service
Commission, submitted a statement show
ing wheu and by whom persons employed
in the Government Printing Office at the
time of its classification, August 1, lSOo,
were appointed. The total number of clas
sifications wa.s 2,71 0. Or thesr- theie were
appointed prior to May 7, 18SH, the be
ginning of Mr Palmer's first administra
tion, G65 There weie appointed by Mr.
Palmer during ills term 1,20.'5. Tlvre were
in the orflce May 9, 1891, the end of Mr.
Palmer's term, 1,868 persons, that 1,-eiug
69 per cent of the total classification.
There were appointed by Benedict from
May 9, 1894, tlie beginning of bis second
lcim, to the date of the classification of
the office, 812. Tlie separations from tlie
da'.e of the classification to April 1 ,1897,
amounted to .'143.
Commissioner Trocter questioned Mr.
Oyster as to con.miitts which l'ave been
appointed by the Typographical Union to
visit, tlie. Civil Service Commission. Mr.
Oyster said that the local typographical
union has expressed itself strongly
in favor of the civil f-ervice leform.
Mr. Procter asked Mr. Oyster if his ex
pel lance In tl.e oflice had not shown him
many evidences of the rankuess of the
political method of supplying the office
The witness stated that all of his ex
perience In the office had shown him that
It was expensive and in every way much in
ferior to the piesent plan.
Mr. Oyster went on to testify as to the
feeling of labor organizations, not. only
the Typographical Union, but others, with
regard to the civil service reform. lie
cited man resolutions of the organiza
tions and action taken by them upholding
As to the recent action of the Interna
tional Typographical Union, condemn
ing the system, Mr. Oyster stated that he
had been a delegate to the convention and
that he believed the International Union
was not -well-Iu formed of the system.
Mr. Oyster made another intcrettingstate
ment relative to the politics of the em
ployes of his office, the specification
room. lie referred to testimony which had
heretofore been given, to the effect that
there were ir3 Democrats and 46 Re
publicans in his office. Ue believed that
this was not the fact. His personal
knowledge of his men was that there were
more Republicans among them than Demo
crats. Mr. Andrew Day was the next witness.
He has been reappointed, but was dis
missed in 1894. He stated that he was
separated from the service because he
was a Republican. His reasons for be
lieving this were strong. He was trans
ferred and reduced in tlie Treasury De
partment to a position In the sixth auditor's
office, when Major Howard was made
auditor. He had lost one arm In the war,
and in his new position, where manual
labor was require:!, was at a disad
vantage. He was only kept two or three
days and then discharged for incompctency
to perform manual labor.
ne was afterwards told that many men
who had been In the office for years, and
had two arms, did not do as much as he
did. Major Howard was in thelrebel army
uid be was in the Union, and he and sev
eral other one-armed men were thrown out
within a short time of Major Howard's
Mr. Frank I. Stewart, a printer, not of
the Government Printing Office, and who
stated that he Is not at present employed,
made one of the sensational statements of
the Investigation. Its effect was after
ward partially modified by questions put
to him by Commissioner Procter, but for a
few moments there was a hushed interest
in what he bad to say.
A certain Mr. George D. Skinner, he
said, obtained a position as laborer in
the Agricultural Department when Mr.
J. Sterling Morton became Secretary. He
was a nephew of the Secretary. Shortly
after that lie was promoted. This Mr.
Skinner, Mr. Stewart alleges, was an
alien, born in Canada, and not natural
ized. He committed perjury in regard to
his birthplace in malting his application
in order to make his record clear.
Mr. Stewart called the attention of the
Civil Service ConiiulEsion lo this violation
of tlie law. The commission made an In
vestigation, and notified Secretary Morton
that Skinner must be discharged. Never
theless, Skiuner was not discharged. He
continued in bis position" during all of
Secretary Morton's term, but was finally
separated from the seivice two or three,
weeks ago. Mr. Doyle said to witness tliat
tlie commission could do nothing with
"I wish to call attention to the fnct"
said Stewart, "that although tills was one
of the most important investigitions
made by the commission, its report for that
year has no mention of it among the rec
ords of Investigations in the appendix."

Mr. Towne Says Hnunnism Is the

A report having readied Washington that
the silver Republicans of Ohio Intended to
nominate a ticket of their own In that
State for the fall campaign, ex-Representative
Towne, or Minnesota, national chair
man of that party, yesterday took steps to
head It off. He promptly dispatched the
Tallowing telegram to John E. Owens, sec
retary of the Ohio Valley Bimetallic League,
"Am not advised of any intention by sil
ver Republicans of Ohio to put ticket in
field. Such a movement would, of course,
destroy all chance of defeating Hanna and
would ruin our reputation as devotees of the
cause, putting us on low level of place hunt
ers. The national organization and -ill
leading silver Republicans here are abso
lutely opposed to such a program. Give
this what publicity you please."
Discussing the subject, Mr. Towne said
thc report was incredible and he could
not- believe It If the Silver Republicans
of Ohio were to do this, they would, he
said, be lost to all sense of principle any
wise politics, for such a movement would
absolutely insure the return of Senator
Hanna to the Senate. Mr. Towne said it
must be conceded that the Ohio Democrats
had made some bad mistakes, but they
bad pub the silver question foremost and
stood for tlie overthrow of Hannalsm, the
most loathsome and dangerous influence
in American politics. Mr. Towne said,
further, that for any silver man. at this
juncture, to fail to do all he could for
the success of the Democratic ticket and.
the election of a Democratic legislature,
would be to commit a political crime.
There would, he added, be no Republican
silver ticket in Ohio if the national com
mittee could prevent it.

Sugar was again the feature of the
stock market yesterday, following the
unprecedented rite of Monday. The piiee
went up to 137 7-S yesteiday, being the
highest since the company was organized.
The previous high on Sugar was in lfeU3.
131. Tbe story of the Sugar boom and
tlie rumors and Insinuations which are
afloat connecting certain statesmen witn
tlie Sugar deal are jc-rerred to in another
column. It is petbaps sufficient to say
here that the oidiuary Washington trader
got very little out of tbe rise in Sugar,
although almost everybody was of the
opinion that this advance was to come
at some time lu the near future. This
column has been a persistent bull on Sugai
for some time, during all tbepeiicd when
there bad been reason for it, in fact.
The question whether this phenomenal
advance is over or not is a diffeient one,
of course, except to the gentlemen who
are manipulating the crooked deck beg
pardon the American Sugar Refining
stock. The thing is almost wholly a
matter of manipulation anyway; no mat
ter which way the conference decides on
the sugar schedule, there will be plenty
of protection for the sugar people and
plenty of teas'on why the price should
be as high as it is at present.
The name of Mr. Rockefeller is men
tioned in connection with the sugar deal.
He was undoubtedly one of tbe combina
tion which forced up the price yesterday
and Monday. It will be remembered that
the first intimation published that Mr.
Rockefeller was largely Interested in Sugar
appeared in this column some Aveeks ago.
The story as printrd in The Times was
that Mr. Rockefeller was buying up all
the floating stock of the sugar company,
and acquiring an important interest. He
did this, of course, to make money, and
It Is almost sure that he bought Sugar
at this time with the Intention of keep
ing it, because the sugar company has
just such a monopoly as he is fond of,
and pays just tlie kind of dividend, and
lias just the kind of surplus that he likes.
It is possible that be took this interest
in sugar only temporarily, for the sake
of the few thousand or million dollars
that could be cleared upon this little deal,
but it is much more likely that, having
profited by the deal, he will continue
his in Iciest in the company. This factor
is another one why a prudent trader
should never be without a little Sugar
for fear some such rise as this may occur.
Sugar's influence and smaller interests
in other directlons.made yesterday's market
rather bullish than otherwise all over tbe
board. It Is a fact, however, that the
professional element predominated and that
outside participation Is still on the mo-it
limited scale. After the first morning
rush of Sugar the market took up the
anthracite coal stocks with a good deal
of vigor. The courts have defeated the
attempt lo harass the coal corporations
through the Lexow anli-trust law. And
there Is also the Lehigh Valley matter.
The Lehigh Valley's annual meeting was
held yesterday, and, as was expected, a
Tianagement was installed which seemed
to represent the Morgan Interests. The
anthracite stock went up well and to some
extent communicated a sympathetic
strength to the entire list.
Decker, Howell & Co. announced their
suspension yesterday. . They werea well
known firm of brokers, but are said to have
been rather rash in their business methods.
They were caught bhorton Sugar by the
Mr. Hibbs, Moore & Sctley, and Mr.

The earnings of the Southern Railway for
the third week of July declined 56,000.
Northern Pacific earnings rcr the fourth

Dow, Jones & Co., say of Chicago Gas:
"It is a. fact that the new consolidated
gas company of Chicago under the present
charter can raise the price of gas If It
sees fit to do so. It is also a fact that the
company absolutely controls the acetyline
patents for tbe city of Chicago, which
makes it Invulnerable from attack. Friends
o' the company said yesterday that the
stock would sell above par before the next
dividend was declared. This dividend of
11-2 per cent will be declared on
August G, and will be payable on August
"5. There has been a decided revival
of bullish sentiment on the stock in tne
last few days .
Mr. Robert Llndblom, Mr. Silsby'a cor
respondent in Chicago, quotes the vice
president of Rock Island as saying that
the harvest in Texas and the territories
Is over, and that the grain movement Js
not ye started. Advices from Oklahoma,
he says, place the maximum yield of
wheat at from 0,000,000 to 10,000,ou0
bushels, an increase of six to seven mil
lion bushels over the yield of'lSOC. Ken
tucky -wheat growers have taken steps
toward withholding their present crop
of wheat from the market until the higher
prices which they expect become a
The prospect that St. Paul will have an
increased dividend this fall is excellent.
B'isiness Is steadily better, though its
increase is not as rapid as was hoped for.

Chicago, July 13. -The undertone of
strength to the wheat marketv noticed
at the close yesterday, was m:.ttained to
day, and several efforts made by promi
nent professionals to depress prices were
ineffectual. There was liberal buying,
both fortheSouthwestand Eastern account.
The bujing was not conspicuous enough
to attract special attention, but in the
aggregate was influential. Receipts here
today werr- 17 cars against 30 the same
clay a year ago. Foreign markets were
all strong. Ilaltimoie reported cash of
ferings all. taken. The strength in the
July option is the most conspicuous feature
of today's market, and the outstanding
unsettled short interestls still liberal. The
visible wheat Is 30,000,000 bushels less
than it was in this country a year ago.
The amount afloat Tor Europe Is 1-1,000,000
bushels less. Stocks the world over are
light. The winter wheat crop is of ex
cellent quality and looks as if it would
meet a good demand when offered for s,al?.
