Representative Glover has permitted the
publication of an abstract of his report of
the treasury investigation. Its statements
are startling, but not by any means incredi
ble when we consider the enormous trans
actions of iho department and the count
less defalcations in private institutions so
much smaller. It is certain that congress
will now have t6 order the publication of
tlip rvhalo report, oad to continue the in
vestigation. Following is a brief
statement of what Mr. Glover
says: Mr. Glover claims that there has been
a contiuual theft and embezzlement in the
Bureau of Printing and Engraving, and
figures up a total loss from this source iu
the last eight years of many million dollars.
He charges that there has been a continu
ous abstraction of the fibro paper, and says
that by the use of that and the impressions
of genuine plates obtained by employes,
who were secured appointments for that
purpose, millions of dollars of money have
been made and put out which cannot be
told from the original. He estimates that
the amount' is not less than f 30,000,000.
The Treasury department is generally over
hauled, and stigmatized as corrupt in nearly
every bureau. . He charges that there is a
deficit of over $3,000,000 in the bureau
having charge of the abandoned property
fund, and gives specific figures to prove it.
He says, too, that very many important
books aud documents were kept away from
him, but that a thorough investigation,
which it would take a longtime to-make,
would disclose feartul dishonesty and fraud.
He claims, too, that in almost every instance
where dishonest officers have attempted to
expose corrupt practices, they have cither
bceu silenced or discharged, and that tho
meu who have been proven guilty have been
kept or advanced iu many instances.
Through the persistent efforts of two
Democrats the bill admitting quinine frco
ot chargo was pushed through congress at
the late sossion. Tho only opposition was
from Republicans who knew the small duty
received by the government on this indis
pcnsible medicinal article could not bo re
moved witltout breaking up tho monopoly
winch has trebled the valuo of quinine.
Verily Senator Thurman was wiso when ho
said tho Democratic party was tho party of
the people while the other was the party of
classes, corporations and monopolies.
AN ANECDOTE OF THE CHEERIEST OF DEAD
It is related of tho famous Beau Hick
man that In his best days he once weut to a
first-class hotel in Baltimore, and, after
registering his namo, said ho wanted tho
very best the houso could afford for his
money, twirling lu his hand at tho same
time a quarter of a dollar, Tho clerk saw
before him an elegautly attired gentleman,
and, as ,Beau requested, assigned hiiu a
handsome parlor and bedroom. Beau
lived like a fighting cock, ordering wines,
extra dinners aud everything palatable, for
a week, at the eud of which time the bill
was lent. The amount was something ex.

NEW SERIES NO. M4.
Nothing abashed, however, he strolled
into the office and confronted the clerk.
"Look here, sir; tlieio must be some- mU
take about this; wheal came here I told
you I wanted the best you could afford for
ray money's worth. I had this quarter then
(producing the coiu), it's all I've had
since." Tho clerk waxed angry and high
words followed, "Your fault, sir, your
fault," Baid tho imperturbable Beau, "not
mine. Y'ou can kick mo out If you like,
but I'd rather go alone.". Tradition says
they were about to proceed to violent meas
ures, when the landlord appeared on tho
scene, and, looking at tho name on the reg
ister, recalled the peculiar vagrant charac
ter ot the man betore him (then just becom
ing notorious iu Washington), and discov
ered that ho had been "ecresriouslv
sold." The thought flashed across
his mind, "If this joke gets out
I shall be tho laughing-stock of my friends
and never hear the last of it." Deliberat
ing a moment h5 turned to' Bean and good
naturedly remarked: "Well, Hickman,
that's the best I ever had; but I can't keep
it. I'll make a bargain witlt you. Here,
take this 3, and pay, your way to Wash
ington (Beau quietly pocketed tho half
eagle), and now go over to house, stav
a week on tho same terms that you stayed
here, and I'll give you a dinner every time
youcomo to Baltimore." "Thank you,"
replied lieau, without cracking a smile,
"I've bceu over there for two weeks and
they sent me here."
It is needless to add that Beau disan-
pearod out of the front door with an accel
erated motian, and the landlord never heard
the last of las attempt to "get even" with
