tions to collectors concerning supplies of

A mechanical DRY tea for tbo effectual
destruction of boer stamps has been sub
mitted to CommUsIoner Delano for bis In
spection. Tho necessity for some such do
Ylco Is acknowlgod since thcro Is a great
number of beer stamps reused, and all the
methods heretofore employed hare not
proved aa effectual as tho Interests of tbo
revenue demands. Tho question Is whether
the commissioner has the right nnder exist
ing laws to require the use of such a device.

Association op Volunteer Medical
O mesas. A preliminary meeting of toI
butcer medical officers, Including surgeon
and acting assistant surgeons, who served
daring tho late war, has been hero to organ
ize an association during the approaching
session ot the American Medical Association,
which will commence In this city on the 3d
of May. It Is to bo hoped that a consider
able number of medical officers of volun
teers will then bo In the cltv to lake steps
for perpetuating a portion of tbo Union
forces that occupied a responsible and hon
Tub Bureau op Education. Work In
tho Bureau of Education, under General
Eaton, haa begun In eatnest. A statement
has been made from tbe last census showing
the condition of the Toting population In
1800, In regard to tho abtllty to read and
write for each State, and tbo addlttons which
will bo made to this class by the adoption of
tho fifteenth amendment. Tho tables are
designed to show fearful predomluanre of
Ignorance among the voters la many sec
tions, particularly the South, and the neces
sity pf efficient school systems. Ti.bles
have also been arranged to show that tho
postal receipts, new Inventions and lati rnal
revenue receipts alt decrease In direct pro
portion to Iho In create. In tho number ok the
In coftiPUANOR. with the request of tbo
Second Auditor the War Department, has
called upon the Governors of tho servera)
Slates to designate tbo regiments entitled to
the $100 bounty according to tho rocent de
cision of tbe Supremo Court, Mtassaehu-
1 Idti lent iU reglmcnti, the 1st, SJ, 7th, Vf b
10th and Hth, being selected to complete
the requisition for troops under thai call
yet Ilosmer, whoso claim the Supremo Court
decided was J a it, belonged to tho 15th Mas
sachusett regiment, and has thus secured
the amount claimed through a blander on
the part of tho Court of Claims. It Is not
Improbable that Senator Wilson! bill will
pau, giving the bounty to all who enlisted
between May 3 and July 33, 1891.
Tna Ihterocranio Canal. President
Grant's long cherished idea of an later
oceantc canal across tho Isthmus of Darlcn
can hardly be realized, as the reports of tbe
United Stares exploring party, now there
aro oot favorable. It now remains for tho
United States to aid a New York company,
with Marshall O. Roberts at 1U head, which
has a concession from tho Mexican Govern
ment for a canal across the Tehuantepee
route. A great objection to this route has
been a sand bar In front of the outlet Into Ibo
Gulf of Mexico, on which there was only
about thirteen feet of water. It has, bow
ever, been ascertained that below the bar Is
tho muddy bottom of tho harbor, and ex
perienced navigators, including Admiral
Porter, are of the opinion that Ibo sand bar
can be removed by dredging.
A statement bas been extensively circa

and his accounts were In an unsettled con

the accounts of Spear have been brought up
