It baa been discovered that New
York sergeant of pollen la a rank anar
chist, who believes that large fortunea
are robbery, and favors the overthrow of
the entire political and lorlal system.
Ha alio declares that one ont of every
five policemen in the city maintains the

of a policeman la to protect every citizen

the laborer, and to uphold law end order
generally, tbe New Tork paper are In
quiring whether men bolding tbe view
confessed by thia particular officer are 111
to be on the police force. Tbe general
conceotu of opinion la that they are not.
Tbe probability It, however, that the

worthy of note, however, that the bold
directness of the scheme already proposed
for giving tbe control of electlona of con

the conservative members of tbe party,
which tioects to benefit by it. Although

Interference witb electieoaon the line pro

TVbether this la true or not, it la under

New York, Nov. lid. Now that a ma
jority of tbe omtificatee of tbe American
Cotton Oil trust has been deposited under
the plan of reorganizing tbe concern a a cor
poration, tb question baa bsun raised a to
whether tbe committee can have tbe trust
dissolved and lie escuritiee transferred to tbe
proposed New Jersey company. At present
U the valuable asset of tbe trust held by
be trustees consist of stocks and securities of
ether corporation. If a majority of tbe
present cwrtiflcata-bolder in number and
amount snaU demand It, nothing remains for
Tlllf, TQiCiK ISIiANU
the present trust as to do but to sell them.
Would Havs ta Declare a Dividend.
The certificates so sold and converted into
money, the trust, ea upon like demand would
be obliged to declare a dividend out of the
money thus res lied. While, therefore, in
theory, the trust would continue for twenty
one years as pro ided in tbe agreement, tbe
trustee would I eve parted with possession
of all the shares of tbe other corporations
owned by tbe f rest trust, and they would
have only what is legally known a a "dry
trust" to admini ter upon. Thus the trust
would be practically dissolved, although
theoretically it would still be in existence.
A Trot I Without Assets.
It would simply be a trust without assets.
It is pomible, therefore, that those wbo de
posit their certificatee within the time limited
by the reorgani ation committee may be
come tbe oie stockholder of th New Jersey
corporation, and participate in it ad
vantages, while those who fail so to do will
be obliged to content themselves with the
dividend which may be declared by tbe
trustee out of he proceeds arising from the
sale of the eecur ties in the treasury of tbe

that during the past fiscal year the action of
the commissioner of pensions in cases ap
pealed to the secre
tary cf the interior
were sustained In
1,176 cases and re
versed in 04 cases.
Since July 1 and up
to October, 1889, th
pension office has
reversed 41 times in
appealed cases and
cases. (Jen. Bussey
refers to his effort
to liberalise the
0YRl, u8Y. ,iraoUo. or x de
partment, and says: "As a result of this
course, a number of important rulings have
been made witb a view to broadening and
liberalizing departmental Interpretations of
the law applicable to numerous meritorious
claimants whose applications for pension had
been unjustly denied, partly because of bar
ren technicalities and partly by reason of
narrow definition of pensionable rights. And
yet this endoavor to liberalize the practice of
the department so as to afford each soldier
the fullest opportunity to establish his claim
bus been pursued with a strict observance
of the intent and the spirit of the law, main
taining always the integrity of the statute
while giving the claimant the benefit of every
reasonable doubt. This policy has been
plainly indicated in recent departmental de
cisions appertaining to tbe line of duty, to
cases involving injuries derived from assault
or from altercations, and to the claims of
Dishonorably Discharged Soldier.
The assistant secretary defends at length
bis decision giving soldiers who were dis
honorably discharged a pension, and quotes
Jud-e Advocate General Holt in ISiWandthe
secretary of the interior in I(f73 in support of
his position. II contends that a pension is
granted for a disability incurred, while a dis
honorable discharge is a penalty imposed for
offenses against army regulations. II sug
gests several reforms which be thinks will be
of benefit .
"A careful revision of the statute relating
to the classification and rating of speciflo dis
abilities, to the conditions which constitute
dependent cases, to the regulations governing
accrued pensions, and to the line of duty in
tbe service," be says, "might remove the
misapprehension of many claimants as to
their pensionable rights, and facilitate also
the adjudication of such claims when ap
pealed from the commissioner of pensions.
The simpler the law, the more easily exe
cuted." CAPITAL CITY NEWS NOTES.
