THE PRESERVATION OP PROPERTY.
It has been correctly stated that tho manage
ment of any estate, he ltclthorreatorperflonal,
requires ns much tact and ability as Is required
to accumulate It. There may ho somo differ
ence of opinion about this, hut the great an
noyance experienced In making Investments
tind taking care of property has led largely to
tho organization of trust companies.
The Washington Loan and Trust Company
Is building the splendid new building at the
corner of Ninth and I' streets northwest. It Is
built of granite and Is fireproof and has all
modern conveniences. It Is Urst-claes In every
particular. If you aro going to Europe this
company will tnko charge of your cn'.lro es
tate, glvo you a receipt for money, notes,
Blocks and bonds, attend to tho collection of
tiny amounts that may he due and reinvest
Innds from time to time. Thochargo for so
doing Is exceedingly moderate and yon are
vlrtually.eavcd nil responsibility aud annoy
mice. This Is of great advantage to peoplo of
means. The cash capital of this corporation Is
one million dollars. Open an account with It,

Tho Secretary of tlio Treasury has ad

The Government lias decided to ask the

of the Sacred Heart, Philadelphia.
The special committee raised in the
Treasury to investigate the matter of se
curing new paper for the currency havo

has not been made public. It is thought
that the recommendation will bo to dis

cesslully counterfeited.

taining fractional coin, except to limit the

mid. that banks located in stib-trcnsurv
cities must obtain their fractional coin
from tlio branch olllco, rather than semi
here for it. Tho further information is

A lliiANihNmv T.vitirK Dodok. Tho
Tieasury Department olllclaU havo been
made nwaro of n shrewd scheme on the
part of Cuban cigarmakcrs to beat tho
Tnriff bill. Section 2111, schedule F. of
the McKlnley bill raises the import duty
on imported cigars from $2.50 to $1.50 per
pound. As soon as tho act. went into
effect tho Cuban makers commenced
wrapping their cigars lighter, so that u
paclcago of 1,000 of tho lightly wrapped
smokers would weigli less In reality
than 1,000 cigars used to weigh under Mm
terms of tho old act. lly this means tlio
import duty was kept down to the llgurcs
prescribed In tho old tariff law and tho
consumers and tho Government wero
both leeched. A special agent, Mr. .lohu
W. Link, has been detailed to investigate
this new tariff dodge,

newed tho oldchargesof drunkenness and

the urgency of tlicir complaint led tho
Secretary of tlio Treasury to refer tho lat
ter accusation to tlio special committee,
who hnvo been seeking rt substitute for

Is hero on private business. Asked about

"Tlio outlook for Democratic success

"What about tho third party?"
"I hardly think thero will be a Farmers'

tho Republican party."
Mr. Grain, in speaking of tlio Speaker

Mr, Mills would unquestionably be suc
cessful, A JIOTIIM'S PLEA
FOR HER TWO CHILDREN, WHO ARE
NOW DETAINED IN AN ASYLUM.
The Asylum Authorities Say the Mother
Wants Possession of the Children to
Obtain Their Inheritance Which
Would Otherwise Revert to Tliem
Upon Attaining; Their Majority.
Mrs. Susannah Ilakcr, at whose Instance
the writ of habeas corpus was issued yes
terdoy for possession of her children, took
a seat in tlio Court in General Term this
morning at 10 o'clock. Site was accom
panied by her niece, who was dressed in
deep mourning, and her solicitor, J. Pres
ton Williams. Mrs. Ilakcr glanced very
frequently at Mie door of tho court room
in anticipation of an opportunity to see
nnd coress her son and daughter, who had,
as sho claimed, been separated from her
for some timo. She was, however, doomed
to disappointment, for when Judge James
came into Chambers the writ of habeas
corpus ordered issued by him. command
ing tho presence of Mrs. A. I). Lee in Court
with the two children, bore the following
return:
"Mrs. Lee not to be found. Out of city.
"Danu:i. M. Raxsdi:i,i
"P. S. Marshal."
Mrs, Ilakcr left tlio City Hall in com
pany witli her solicitor, but she was quite
demonstrative and declared most posi
tively that she would not be trilled with
in this manner.
The case was briefly referred to in yes
terday's CiUTit-Rixoni), in which it was
stated that Mrs. Raker's two children,
i.steiio aim Vt illts, wero uniawiitlly de
tained and imprisoned in tlio Washing
ton Orphan Asylum and without tlio con
sent ordesire of the mother.
The case ns told by her is quite an iu
lorestiig oijc.
Six years ago sho lost her husband,
Jacob Ilakcr, who left her with thrco
children, Jacob Townscnd, l'stello
and Willis Raker. She was thus
le.ft dependent almost entirely upon
her own resources, but she went to work
with a will and succeeded in sinmortiiig
her children quite comfortably. Two
vears ago sho was taken sick and found
it necessary to send her two younger
children, the two asked for by tlio habeas
corpus, to tho Washington Orphan Asy
lum. She was confined to hor bed for
somo timo but finally gained full health
and strength and was ablo to again fill
her position.
it was then that sho desired tho pres
ence of her younger children, but some
what to her surprise tho asylum authori
ties positively declined to turn them over
to her and, as she states in her petition,
have refused to do so repeatedly since,
She insists that by her own efforts she
was able to support them and very
anxious to do so. Only a short time ago
Mie mother of her husband died in Mas
sachusetts, leaving quite considerable
property; also a provision Mint so much
a month should bo paid toward tlio sup
port of her son's thrco children in Wash
ington. Mr. W. P. Williams was named ns
guardian, and for somo months ho lias
been paying tlio share allotted to Jacob
Townscnd Ilakcr, the only one that the
mother has control of. Mr. Williams
stands ready to pay an equal sharo to the
children who arc at tlio Washington
Asylum.
The return made on tho writ did not
surr"iso Mrs. linker or her counsel com
pletely. While they wero satisfied that
Mrs. Lee was tlio manager of tho institu
tion, thoy have been apprised Miat there
are others who are responsible and who
havo tho custody of tho children.
Another petition will be filed to-day by
-Mrs. llaker.
Tho Other Side.
At tho asylum it was stated that, when
Iho children were placed thero two years
ago. the mother complied with all the
regulations and executed a formal relin
quishment of her rights to their control,
as is usual in cases whero children aro
placed in such institutions, aud gave the
asylum authorities full control of them
until tney attained ineir majority.
Tho board of trustees pass upon all ap
plications for the return of children, and,
whereit is proven that the person is com
petent to properly care for them and of
good moral character, tho requests nre
usually granted.
in this case, however, the board was
not satisfied Hint tbo mother was ablo to
provide for her children and havo re
fused to return them to her. It was also
stated at tlio asylum to-day that tho
object of tlio mother to regain control of
her children was simply to enable her to
use mo money iett mem ty tneir grand
mother. It tney remain in Mio asylum
this money will not be touched, but will
be turned ovor to them when thoy attain
their majority, with tlio accrued Interest.
Tho acting superintendent alsobtatcd
that Mrs. llaker could see her children
upon the regular visiting days, as sho had
been in the habit of doing, and at such
other times as tbo board deemed proper,
but (lint tho children would not bo sur
rendered to hor unless Mie court so di
rected. It Is not known when Mrs, Lee
will return.

M, CIIOUNSE'S CASE.
ON TRIAL TO-DAY ON A CHARGE OP
CRIMINAL LIBEL.
Dr. Hammond Appears Against II I in In
the Police Court nnd Relates the
Story ol the Publication In the
"World" of the Alleged Libel.
At 1:30 o'clock this afternoon tiiocnso
of Dr. William A. Hammond against W.
L. Crounso of tlio New York World,
charging lilm with criminal libel, was
called up before Judge Miller In the
Police Court.
Tlio Government was represented by
Assistant Attorney Amies, while Mr. A.
A. Lipscomb looked after tho interests of
Mr. Crounse.
Dr. Hammond testified to reading tlio
nrticles in tlio H'orW describing Iho re
moval, by him, of a ntolo from the head
of Mrs. Senator Stanford, and his charge
for.operation of $5,000.
Ito telephoned to tlio IlorW' bureau on
Fourteenth street and denied the story,
nnd Mr. Crounso promised Miat it would
be retracted on Sunday.
A denial, ho said, was printed that dav,
but not in n very conspicuous placo hi the
paper, nnd Mr. Crounse wrote that, but
for tho lateness of tlio hour when it was
sent over tlio wires it would have appeared
on tho first page.
The letter was read to the Court and
thejifry. Tho witness said that ho had
llrst read tho HorW's article at tho Metro
politan Club and afterward in various'
other papers.
The Doctor said lie saw Mr. Crounse on
the 21th of April and had a talk witli
him.
Mr. Lipscomb then took up the cross
examination, he started out by reading
a retraction printed in the H'orW Satur
day, April 21, but in answer to a question
askcd Dr. Hammond said that it did not
'appear in Mie edition that lie received
from New' York through tho mail that
day.
"Do you think a special was printed
especially for that notice," asked Judge
Miller ot the Doctor.
"Oh, no; 1 perhaps got hold of the
wrong paper," was Mm answer.
Tho doctor said most positively that ho
did not care to prosecute Mr. Crounse,
but lie did want vindication. He had
reason to believe that his business had
been injured by the publication of the
article, aud that it had a tendency to keep
patients away from his ollice.
"There was no ill-feeling whatever to
ward the defendant on my part," con
tinued the witness, "because I Invited Mr.
Crounso to my house to dinner after the
publication of the article.
"All that I wanted was a fair correction
of Mie publication in a conspicuous place
jn the paper, as the original had appeared
at the head of the column on the llrst
page.
"You do not consider that Mr. Crounse
bad anything to do with the make-up ot
the paper in New York," questioned ;Mr.
Lipscomb.
"Probably not," replied Dr. Hammond,
After further testimony the case was
sent to tlio grand jury and Mr. Crounso
was bound over in $300 bond, which was
furnished.
