THE TREASURY SURPLUS.
REPORT OF THE 8ECRETARY OF THE
Th Receipt and Expenditure of the
Government Th financial Situation
of the United State Suggestion to
Congress Other Washington Ndte.
Washington, Deo. 8. Tho jecrotary of
the treasury in his annual report; says'that
the total ordinary receipts of tho govern
ment during the yoar ending Jun5 80, 1887,
wore $371,40!'., 277, and that the total ordin
ary expenditures were $31835.428, leaving
a surplus of 5t58?,84(, which with an
amount drawn from tho cash balance in the
treasury of $24. 455, 780, makes a total sur
plus of $80,023,570, which was offered to
the rodomptlon of bonds.
Tho receipts for the yoar show an increaso
of $84,9(13,550 oyer the year before and the
expenditures show an increaso of $J5,44'J,
For tho present yoar tho revenues are es
timated at $333,000,000, and tho expend
itures $310,317,765, leaving on estimated
' surplus of $611, 188, ai4, June 30, l&sS.
The secretary estimatos tho surplus for
the yoar 18S0 at $50,409,204.
In regard to the surplus revenue the sec
retary says: "Taxation and currency re
form wero the questions which my distin
guished predoco33or doomed to bo of most
pressing itnportnnco and to them he devoted
a large part of tho two annual reports
wbice he mado to congress. In thoso re
p.rtg ho stated his honest convictions with a
vigor and boldness whioh, together with the
ability and fairness that ho showed, in tho
general management of the' deportment,
have given htm a high' place among' states
men and financiers. I find tho samo subjsot
to bo still tho most important of all those to
which it is my duy to call to your atten
tion, and it is not necessary to do otherwise
than 'follow the general lines laid down by
him in treating them. Circumstances have
heightened the immediate urgoncy of taxa
tion reform as affecting the surplus revenues
ot the government. The urgency is so
great that tho question of surplus revenues
demands tho earnest' attention of both the
legislative and exocutlve branches of the
The secretary then gives ways in which
tho receipts and oxpondituros of tho govern
ment may bo made about equal:
First The purchase of the interest-bearing
debt of tho government.
Second Larger expondituros by govern
ment for other purposes than tho purchase
of bonds, bo that they shall each year equal
the taxation of that yoar.
Third Reduction of the rovenue from
taxation to the amount actually required to
meet necessary expenses.
All of these expedients havo in common
the one merit of preventing tho derange
ment to business which miut follow hoard
ing or locking up in the treasury tho circu
lating media of the people.
In aogard to the first plan the secretary
agrees with the president in what his mes
sage said on the subject.
He then says: "I can not believe that it
w 11 adopt the second oxpedient, viz., the
enlargement of government expense sim
ply to expend money raised by taxation
whon the public weal doos not otherwise
call for the expenditure,
41 Tl A. oil.... . il. . - A I
iiouutHuii ui uio rovuuuu irom taxation '
'& only Ut remedy for the oviis which
threaten the country. This may be acoom-
plumed in various ways.
"e la to "du8 or abolish internal rev-
enue taxation. In favor of this is the fact
that, in a small nart of th antithnrn .inf.
the internal tar on liquors and tobacco is
thought to bo oppressive, and is odious to
e ?& "T .f6'? ?nd the fur-
ther fact that, by its reduction, the ex-
pense of its collection might bo somewhat
,,m ., - . ,. ...
The chlef UM 'or tno prejudice against
this tax seems to be that as there was no
such tax before the war for tho union, it is
looked upon as a reminder of the measures
adopted to raise money to carry on the war,
anu wuicu ougut noc to De continued in
time of peace, and as interfering in some
way with the natural rights of mankind to
grow grain and tobacco and manufacture
therefrom spirits, cigars, snufE and the
various forms of merchantable tobacco.
Of courso taxation of whisky and tobacco
trespasses no more upon the natural rights
of man than does tho taxation of his
clothing, of his bedding, of every imple
ment which he use in tbe cultivation of his
"Taxation there must be. Choice is be
tween kinds of taxation; each man can de
cide for himself if ho will examine the sub
ject free from prejudice which is the least
burdensome for him, for his family, and for
his neighbors, and which is in the end the
best for his wholo country. That internal
taxation of spirits and tobacco began dur
ing the war is not a reason why it should be
done away with now, if it be in itself wise.
Bo the fact that the rates of customs taxa
tion wero raised during tbe same war far
higher than ever befbro in our history and
have been continued until now, ought not
to determine the manner of their treatment;
this should rather depend upon what is just
and expedient at the prosent .time. Neither
passion, prejudice, nor sentimentality,
should have placo in consideration of ques
tions of taxation.
"As to the expense of collooting tho in
ternal revenue, I suggest that an amalgv
mation of the customs and internal reve
nue systems is entiroly feasible, and that
thereby a large number of offices might be
abolished and that the expense of the whole
system might be made not to exceod that of
an effloient enforcement of tho a customs
laws. I earnestly commend this suggestion
to tbe careful consideration of congress."
Iteport of the Comptroller.
"Washington, Deo. 8, Tho annual report
of the Comptroller of Currency Trunjiolm,
a partial summary of whioh has been pub- '
lis hod, inoludes a summary of suggestions
receivod by the comptroller from all par'ta
of the oountry respecting a new basis for
National bank circulation. Over forty
plans have bean, proposed, and thoso are re
duced to flvo propositions;
First To do away with the note issuing
function of the banks.
Second To increaso tile inducements for
the banks to deposit Unitod States bonds u
a bosis of National bank circulation.
Third To provide by a now issue of
bonds, for a continuance ot tbe present, or
of sole modified system of National bank
circulation basod on United States bonds.
Fourth To substitute some other security
for United States bonds deposited in tho
treasury as n basis for National bank cir
culation. Fifth To allow the banks to issuo circu
lation upon their general credit, without
requiring upeclAo surety to be dopasited.
The comptroller, after an elaborate disous
lonoftho sooond, third and fifth finally
reaches this conclusion:
"It Would appear that no substitute yet
proposoJ for the present cases of National
bank circulation Is sufficiently froo from ob
jection to bo adopted. Tbe four per cent
bonds will not mature for twonty years, and
lart from other considerations, there if
enough in this fact to justify caution and
delay in making any radical change in the
basis of circulation. In that time, no doubt,
something acceptable will be devised, but at
present all that sooms practicable is to mod
ify tho existing law so as to obvlato its in
conveniences and as a first stop toward this
ond it appears both safe and wise to reduce
tho minimum amount of bomU to bo kopt
Soorctttry of War's Report
"Washington, Deo. 8. The report of the
secretary of war for the last fiscal year
shows that the expenditures (iii)ing the
year were $41,3S6,1C5, against 31.055,803
appropriated for tho current fiscal year.
The secretary estimatos that $53,.13tt,7IO
will be needed during the fiscal yoar ending
June SO, 189. This includes an item of
$22,839,151 for public works, and river arid
harbor improvements. . He endorsos the
recommendation of Lieut. Gku. Sheridan
that tbe army be increased 5,000 men and
renews past recommendations for appropri
ations to strengthen our sea coast arid lake
Secretary Endioott says that in view of
its success attained by our steel makers.
it is apparent' that the assuranco that the
outlay lor tho necessary plant will provo
remunerative is all that is required to pro
duce in this country the largest gun forg
ing of suitable quality.
It is believed to be of vital importance
that appropriations bo annually made by
congress until our present need of modern
guns is supplied and tbe aid that our steel
industry domands is assured. As a step in
this direction an appropriation of $1,500,
000 for the forgings of eight-inch and ten
inch breech loading stoel guns is recom
mended. During the year experiments have
beon mado with shells charged wi.h high
explosives invented by Lieut. Qrayden and
Mr. Smolianiroff, which havo boon fired
from ordinary cannon by means of guu
powder. Further trials will ba made with
these inventions to dotermino their absolute
Attorney General's ltoport.
Washington, Deo. 8. The animal report
of Attorney General Garland presents a
detailed statoment of the business of the
department during the last fiscal year.
During tho year there wero 13,905 criminal
prosecutions, -Xl of them under the customs
laws, 500 under the internal revenue laws,
640 under postal laws, U0 under election
laws, 208 under intercourse acta, 175 under
pension laws, 38 for embezzlements, nnd
0,4'KJ miscellaneous prosecutions. The
aggregate amount of judgments rendered in
favor of the United States in civil suits
during the year was $1,057,350. Fiues, for

Ihe attorney general
renews his recom
mendation of last year for tbe erection of a
government ponitentiary and reformatory
at an early date. Ho renews the suggestion
of the past two years, urging the erection
of a building adjoining the department of
justice building suitable for the supreme
court of the United States, with accommo
dations commensurate with its high posi
tion and dignity. Tho necessity for quar
ters for the supremo court other than thoso
now ooouplod in the capital is apparent; tbe
prosent court room, ho says, is manifestly
too small and its location not sufllciently
apart from tho publicity and bustle attend

tionOther Foreign Dispatches.
London, Deo. a The fact that .Russia is
massing troops on the Austrian frontier in
large numbers and plaoing others whore
they oan command surveillance of a portion
of the German border, is taken as an indi
cation that active measures will shortly go
into effect to enforce respect for Russia's
wishes with regard to Bulgaria, in tho
faoo of little Ferdinand's assumed indepen
dence of the czar's government and his ira
prudont, if not impudont, disregard of tho
hints thrown out to him that he would best
sorve his own interosts by recoinmondine
and furthering cortain modifications of
of Bulgaria's polloy. I
Russia has long remained singularly pas
sive, but it fs now bonoved that tho time is
near nt hand when tho Bulgarian quostion
must bo finally settled. Settlement of tho
question in Russia's favor, and itseoms
impossible that it can in the end be settled
otherwise, involvos Prince Fordiuand's
hasty exit from Bulgaria, and this being
plainly apparent to him has lod him to ap
peal to Austria and England to "preserve
the peaco." Austria would not for a mo
ment think of going to war with Russia
single-handed and England has no mind to
bait tho Russian bear to uphold the ques
tionable right of one of Quoon Victoria's
pets to rule a people with whose interests
the English have nothing in common. Nor
is it believed that Germany is over anxious
to wage war against Russia bn tho slight
by the latter's insisting
upon ner rights in the lialakans, especially
in view of the almost absolute certainty
that the assistance to tho czar of tho now
greatly strengthened French republic, can
be had for the asking.
The ro-oponlng of the Bulgarian question,
whioh now seems eminent, will doubtless
bo accompanied by the bluster and shower
of diplomatic notes that have characterized
tho former attempts to dispose of the
matter, but it is reasonably safe to predict
tnac mere will bo very little blood spilled;
that Bulgaria will in the end be ruled by a
itussian governor, or a prince whose nomi
nation recaivos Russia's approval and that
Austria and Germany will express them
selves as Fatisfled with the result, whethor
they foel that way or not

lias beon doing businesi at No. 7 Noel block,
as manager of tho Nashville Protective and
Collecting agency, hiu again bocomo in
volved in trouble and at last accounts was
Canada. He had boon here but a short time
when a New Orleans merchant, represent
ing a numbor ot other merchants of the
Crescent City, came to Nashville, and after
looking into Nioholson's affairs, employed
Deteotivo R. M. Porter to arrest Nicholson
on tho charge of embezzlement It proved
that a number of claims aggregating $3,000,
had been placed in his hands for collodion
by these morchants. Nicholson failed to
turn over the cash after collection.
Warrants were sworn out and while wait
for requisition papers Mr. Nicholson, a
brother of R. C. Nicholson, oamo here from
Cincinnati and pa d the amounts duo. The
warrants wero withdrawn and R. C Nich

About ten days ago Messrs. Brown &
Farroll learned that a claim which they hod
put in Nicholson's bands had been colleoted
by him. They at once wenfbefore Justice
Everett and entered suit against him, but
when tho officers went to look for Nicholson I
he could not be found. '
It has since transpired that Nicholson

for various merchants claims amounting to
more than $3,000, which ho has failed to

Chlneae Ulgh Binder.
San Franoisco, Dea 8. The dotectives
have learned that tho murder of a China
man named Led YTy, in Chinatown, tho
other night is tho result of ono of those,
deadly feuds that aro carried on by Chinese
societies in this country.. The Sam Jup j
company, a large and powerful organiza-1
tlon, which made its own laws for the
Chinese belonging to it split some time ago
into two factions, called tho Bo Sin Soer
and tho Kio Sin Seer. Some high binders
ot the Kie Sin Seer faction killed two men
of the Bo Sin Seor, and the latter faotion
commissioned a trusty out-throat named
Leong Ah Tick to avenge the slaughter of
its member. Leong Ah Tick accordingly
killed L9o Wy, who happened to be the first
Kie Sin Soer man who came in range of his
pistol After tho latter murder a party
from the Kio Sin Seer went to tho head
quarters ot the Bo Sin Soer faction, and
tearing down the sign over the door,
chopped it into pieces. This is considered
the greatest indignity that can be offered a
high binder organization, and can only be
wiped out by blood.

A BOY FIEND.
Atroolon Deed of a Ten-Tear-Old
In Jersey City.
New Yomc, Dec. b. Jot-soy City has a
ton-year-old boy who of late bos developed
a depravity almost as great as that of the
famous boy murderer of Massachusetts;
Jesse Pomoroy. It is of but recent growth,
his wickodnoss taking the form hitherto of
petty pilfering. She case is singular in
view of the gentle and religious influences
which surround tho boy, for ho is an inmate
oi tbe Jtlouio of the Bisters of Peace, over
whioh the nun of Kenmare preside. Just
after dinner in the school room, yesterday,
and whllo tho children were enjoying a re
cess in the yard the good nun Sistor Mary
Evangelist heard a scream from the school
room. Rushing into that apartment she
saw littlo Tommy Jones, a throo-yoar-old
boy in the clutches of Freddy Itoilly, a lad
soven years his senior, who was holding the
younger child down on the hot school boom
Ho had unbottoned tho young boy's
trousers nnd seated him on tho 6tovo, pre
viously gagging tho littlo fellow with a piece
of dirty linen. Tho boy in his agony had
managed to toar tho gag from between his
tooth nnd ye! lod lustily as ho felt his flesh
burn under him. Tho stench was sickening.
As soon us Itoilly saw the nun ho dropped
tho victim and turnod coolly away while
Tommy fell to tho floor moaning. "Why
did you do that?" askod tho sister. No an
swer was vouchsafed by the violous young
ster, who coolly walked out Into the yard.
Dr. Gray was summoned and on examina
tion announced that tho child was seriously
injured. When the injuries had beon at
tended to tin sister took the youthful tor
mentor in hand and administered suoh a
severe corporal punishment as he had lever
received, but it seemed to have no oltoct oa
him. Last night ho roomod with a boy six
years his soriior and for whom no fears are
entertained from his vicious tendencies.
An Oldi Man's Folly.
New York, Dec. 8. Laura V. Leods has
commenced divorce proceedings aguinst hor
husband, James H. Leeds, ouarging him
with inhuman treatmont and abandonment.
Leeds is seventy-seven years old, an ex-sea
captain, and a member of tho firm of James
H. Leeds & Co. Laura is his third wife.
Sho asked for alimony and counsol fee pend
ing tho decision in tho suit An affidavit by
Leeds said that the marriage was obtained
by trick and fraud; that she represented
hor .elf as a respoctablo widow, whon she
wa3 really a worthless woman. She ha3 -,
been married to him sinco January, and in
that time has robbed him of $4,000. pro
cured a dead of all his proporty, and has
ruined him financially, mentally and mor
ally. An affidavit by a detective stated
that she was formerly tho mistros of a
Japanese nobleman, and that he had ar
rested her for stealing the Japanese's jew
elry. It was brought out that Leeds ob
tained his wife through a matrimonial
agency. Decision was reserved.
A Shocking Aceldeut.
Philadelphia, Pa, Dea 6. A shocking
accident occurred this forenoon at the "coal
dump"' of tho Reading Railroad company,
at Richmond and Somerset streets, in Port
Richmond, this city. Tbe coal dumn is a
largo area, with tracks running into and a
largo movable derrick. This derrick con
sists mainly of a great pole eighty feet and
about twenty inchos in diameter, and is
supported by guys. Ono of these snapped
and the great beam toppled over with a
crash. f In its path were five men, and thoy
were smashed nnd ground by tbe huge tim
ber as it came down. Three of them were
instantly killed and two others fatally1 in
jured. The names are John Kerrigan, Ed
ward Brown and John Morley. Peter
Trainor and another man whose name was
not learned are believed to bo fatally in
jured. 1 A Stolon Bella Usturned.
New York, Dea 8. The World's New
burg, N. Y., special says that a silver oup
stolen from Washington's headquarters
over thirty years ago has boon returnod to
the trustees of tho building by a friend of
the woman who stole it Rooently on her
death-bed she exacted a promiso from the
friend that tho stolon relic should be re
turnod. No name was given the trustees
and tbe person who took the cup will never
be known. The woman whon sho stolo the
cup probably thought that it was a souvenir
of George Washington. Thoro is no record
of such an article having ever beon donated,
neither was its loss ever noticed.

Chioaoo, Dea 8. In response to a call of
the Typographical union for a special moot

700 union printers assembled lost night and
unanimously resolved to fight the Typothotes
to tho bitter end. Every "chapel" in tho
