Dmntrr-Tit ltmm The history of
this direct refund tax act is quito Interest
ing. In the Forly-eighth Congress Jfr.
Hammond, n member of the House from
Georgia, attempted to pass n bill to refund
to liis State a certain sum of money that
the preceding Congress had appropriated
to pay i Revolutionary war debt. The
amount of this old claim was about 15,
CCO, nnd Judge I.awrcnee, then First
Comptroller, had seized it and passed it to
the credit of the State of Georgia on its
direct-tax account, which was open nnd
uncollected. Mr. Hammond stated these
facta during the course of somo remarks,
whereupon a Republican member, In a
spirit of humor, offered an amendment to
the pending bill to refund tho whole of
the direct tax to all the States. Tho Demo
crats at that period were solicitous to pile
up the Treasury surplus, ond this start
ling proposition so discomfited Mr. Ham
mond that he laid his proposition on the
table and abandoned it. Hut the little
seed thus sown in a spiritof humor took
root, and in ovorv subsenucnt Congress
the direct-tax refund was agitated until
the last Congress passed it.
A Frit nciimvx Works tiii: Customs 1'eo
rst,. The Treasury Department has ad
vices of ono of the most gigantic schemes
to defraud tho Government that has been
brought to tho attention of tho customs
bfilccin New' York City for some year?.
A Paris dressmaker of the male persua
sion, Charles Laucr of No. 7,1 ItueSt.
Anne, is tho offender and some of tho
most fashionable modistes of the princi
pal cities of America are his customers.
A few months ago the drygood3 mer
chants of New-York became aware of the
fact that n number of their customers
among tho female dressmakers had sud
denlydcsertcd them, and theydecided to
investigate. The result led them to be
lieve that n certain foreign importer was
infringing on their trade, and the matter
was laid btforoMr. Wilbirof the special
agents' department of tho customs olllce.
Mr. Wilbcr in turn placed tho case in the
hands of a trusted detective and his inves
tigations disclose thai tho French dress
maker. Irfiucr. has been shipping dress
goods for socral years to privato custom
ers in this country invoiced at prices
from SOO to COO per cent, lower than their
actual value. A few days ago a consign
ment of forty-three cases came over in
voiced by Lauer filled with silks, satins,
lace and crepe dresses made up in thu
latest spring Parisian styles. Thirty
four of these cases wcro promptly
seized for undervaluation, tho contents of
which liad been invoiced at 37,000 francs.
The custom officials considered that a
suspiciously low appraisal and seized the
goods. Lauer's business has been
drummed np in this country by a man
named Urndford, v ho has visited regit
iaiij the principal Eastern and Western
tow ns. So far us has been learned Liner's
customers are in no way parties to hisdis
honcst methods. Bradford represented to
them and they simrly bought on ills
representations. Lauer's plan has been
to send a printed invoice to his customers
with the goods and another of lesser
amount would be prepared for tho custom
house people. This undervaluation sel
dom fell short of COO per cent, and tho
racket was easily and safely, worked un
til the merchants began to kick.
Imii vs Ej. i istmexts. Secretary Proctor
and General Sciioficid aro much pleased
with the success they have met with in
the enlistment of Indians in tho Army.
Already three troops have been formed
and the Department expects to hao
othera in a short time. It is their inten
tion to utilize Indians who graduate from
tho Indian schools In the capacity of
tailors, cooks, mechanics, blacksmiths,
etc.. in connection with tho Indian com
panies, and iho Indian Bureau will bo
urged to do all in their power to educate
Indian youths to fill -such positions. War
Department officials and Army officers
think the successful enlistment of Indians
will go a great way toward sohlng the
Indian question and making tucm sen

Wiifre Tin. TrouniE Is Some time
ngo tho Health Officer called attention to
filthy gutters nt Twelfth nnd D strecls.and
Pennsylvania avenue between Seven
teenth nnd Eighteenth streets. Superin
tendent of Street Cleaning Arnold says
thnt complaints of Ibis nature arc likely
to be very frequent hereafter unless tho
situation of affairs is changed. The trou
ble is caused by the placing of railroad
iron intended for rcloying streot railway
tracks, in the gutters, thus stopping them
up. The superintendent thinksthatsomo
change should be made so as to permit
the guttervvnys being kept open.
He is v KtcKni!. The following is a
verbatim copy of ono of the numerous
complaints which find their way to tho
District Building and havo to bo wrestled
with by tho Commissioners:
"My parcntsaud mj self have lived in the

that the now board will contain ono Col

The Commissioners are endeavoring to
provide quarters in which to locato the
new Board of Assessors when appointed.
It is proposed to roof over the little yard
adjoining the District Building as a tem
porary place of business for tho assessors.
Thcro is no appropriation for this pur
pose, but the Commissioners think thnt
a portion of tho emergency fund can bo
used. A letter has been prepared, to the
First Comptroller of the Treasury, asking
whether this fund cannot be used. One
of the main reasons for tho establishment
of the emergency fund was to provide
means to keep the Potomac River frco
from ico during the winter, but as the
winter is over the fund cannot be drawn
on for that purpose during tills year, and
it is therefore thought that it is available
for tlio use of the assessors.
Commissioner Doturluss said this morn
ing tiiat the new assessors would not be
announced until Colonel Robert's return.

a most sensational attack on Mr. Ho, the
English speaking secretary of lho Chinese

having "sold into slavery a whole family
of his countrymen and for this crime is
now unable to return to his nativo laud."
The article continues by accusing Mr.

interests on America's desiring conces

Minister, the story says, was "on the

beaming countenance which is almost

English speaking member of the Chinese
Legation and translates every document
sent by the Minister to the home Govern
ment. HisnoHion is that of secretary5. He
held the same place from lS79to ISS2, but
resigned and returned to China nnd was
made manager of the Chinese Fire and
Marino Insurance Company, an enterprise
which is run under tho auspices of tho
Chinese Government. When Chang Sen
Moon was appointed Minister to this
couutry in ISsO ho induced Ho to return
herewith him. He has been in the lega

Tiir Ckitic-Rkoku reporter found Sir.
Ho at tho legation this afternoon. A
clipping trom tlio Jones was snown mm.
He had not read more than half of the
article when he burst into tears and said
"1 his is an infamous lie and there

I was never guilty of selling human llesh.

Washington is the natural nnd proper

committees and organizations. It is l

makes it the proper place from which te
