JOHN W- POTTER.
Wkdhesdat, September 11. 1889.
A pension claimant fit this county,
whose claim wak reported upon adverse
ly, received a statement to that effect
dated Aug. 28. 1889, while Tanner waa in
Milwaukee, with John C. Black's name
signed to It aa pension commissioner. In
addition to the fact that the present pen
sioa department wants to show as many
favors to deserters as to faithful soldiers,
it assumes that the old soldiers art fools
enough not to tanw who Is at the head
of the pension department when an uns
favorable decision Is rendered. The let
ter will be remalled today with an in
quiry as to whether John C. Black is
still in office. rekln Timet.

The public debt statement issued lately
affords considerable food for thought. It
shows that the public debt increased six
millions during Aagnst. The expendi
tures during August were thirty-eight
million against twenty-four million in
the corresponding mouth a year ago, an
increase of fourteen million during this
single month. Of this immense expendi
ture, over half, or twenty-one million,
was for pennloos. The surplus now is
in exact ncures i!3,4"u,wy .04, as
against f I07.(K).Xl a year ago.
Poor old surplus) You have been the
subject of the orations of politicians and
the street arguments of ordinary people
for many a year, t on have caused the
expenditure of tons upon tons of paper
and oceans of Ink. But you will not
trouble the public mind much longer.
The Harrison administration has solved
the puzzle of what to do with you. Its
methods is to dispose of you, not by the
reduction of unnecessary taxation, but to
expend you in every sort of wasteful ex
travagance, jivitientiy with a year or
two more of lWrrlsonism and Tannerism
the question will not he, what to do with
the surplus, but how to raise sufficient
revenue to meet the expenditures.

Tlie damage along tbe coast from Bay

damaged. Beach Haven, Barnegat, Long

Strike Leader Burns Sort of
ATTICS ON AMERICAN WORKMEN.

the Vlale of the Britisher's Wrath-r-Londea
Papers Intimate That th Ae
eonat Is Aboat Balanced The 'Strike
Sltmatloa Not Improved One More
Horrible Woman Butchery Notes.
LoiTDOif, Sept. 1L Burns, the Socialist
lead? of the dock laborers, made a speech to
the uien yesterday, in which he denounced
the American workingmen for an abundant
sympathy which consisted too much of
words and was entirely deficient of more
substantial aid. Addressing a seoond meet
ing of strikers last night, Burns again as
sailed the American workmen for their fail
ure to contribute money in aid of the strik
ers. "With all their boasting and bluffing,"
be said, "they have given nothing. If ever
tbe dock men were in a position to congratu
late themselves it is now, for no less than
7,00J was received yesterday alone. But
'nary a red cent' came from America. As
for their sympathy, I would say: 'D n your
pity I Give us your bob,'"
Honors Are Pretty Easy.
Some of the newspapers mildly reprove
Burns for his tirade against American or
ganized workmen, and gently point out to
him that in all tbe great strikes which have
taken place in America within the past years,
if the English trades unions contributed any
sympathy to their cousins across the water,
it was all tbey did contribute. Cash has
nev.r been so universally medium of ex
change as sympathy between organized in
dustry in England and America, and it is
hardly fair for Mr. Burns to a tor the ac
cepted currency without some notice before
hand. As a matter of fact, under similar
circumstances, Eigland has -never tent a
penny to American strikers.
Another Compromise Rejected.
Tbe seen id compromise submiltod to tbe
strikers for their consideration has met the
fate of the first and bas been re, jocted. This'
was a proposal made' by Cardinal Manning
on bis own initiative, and one which bad
not received the approval of the other medi
ators, nor of the dock directors. It provided
for tbe immediate resumption of ' work by
the strikers,' and the concession of the in
creased pay demanded, to date from Nov 1.
Burns told Cardinal Manning that the tem
per of the men was such that it would be
futile to urge tbe November compromise.
Subscriptions for the tietiefit of the strikers
continue to flow in, and the result is that
many of tbe dock laborers are faring better
in idleness than they ever did while working,
and, though this is only true of the more
shiftless of tbe men, the fact bas a potent
influence in postponing the day of settle
Another Mysterious Startler.
London, Sept 1L The mutilated remaiui
f another fallen woman were found by the
London police in the Whitocbapel district
yesterday. Great excitement followed the
discovery. The body was found iu an angls
of a railway arth, and the bead and arms
were missing. Tbe stomach was cut open
and tbe intestines taken out and laid on the
ground. Tbe mutilated body was entirely
nude and bad evidently been carried there
from some other place. It was that of a
woman about .10 years old. and one who was
low tn tlie social scale. Experts declare it
was not the work of "Jack the Ripper," as
tbe mutilation was done with much skill,
showing that the murderer had s una knowl
edge of surgery. There is no clue to the
Queen Natalie Going to Visit Iler Son.
Belgrade, Sept 1L The city was thrown
into a fever of excitemeut yesterday by tbe
report from Odessa that Queen Natalie was
coming to visit her son, King Alexander,
whether the regents liked it or not, and she
was determined to ignore tbe conditions they
prescribed at tbe instauce of her former bus
band, ex-King Milan. What csusm tbe
most serious apprehension ntmut this report
is the certainty that Queen Natalie is acting
under the guidance of the rzir. Tbe regents
are in a panic, not being able to decide upon
any course of action.
The Cartridge Factory Horror.
Antwerp, Sept. 1L M. Corvilain, the

his selection was made unanimous with great
enthusiasm. Loud calls were made for the
nominee, but on tbe announcement that he
was not in the city the convention adjourned

during those months was 4,H4),577. The
amouat-advauced during July and August,
1889, was a4 70U,000, and tlie atnouut dis
bursed during July and August past wan
Caneed by a Deficiency.
"Mora than half of thedisburements dur
ing July and August, 1889, were in payment
of cases allowed during tbe last fiscal year,
ending June St), 188, which wars not paid on
aoc opart of a deficiency in tbe appropriation
for That year, making it therefor necessary
to pay these claims out of the amount ap
propriated for tbe current fiscal year. This
accounts in every particular for the ap
parent increase in tbe payment of pensions
