Secretary Chandler appeared
yesterday as a witness before a
sv' committee of the Senate com
mittee on extoenditures of putblic
money,.and w as examined in rela
tion to: sthe recently discovered
frauds in the bureau of medicine
and sui'gery. The amount of' thes0
frauds, committed by sneans of
false vouchers for goods never de
livered, anid extending from June
21, 1883, to Jan. 25, 1884, he sta
ted to be about $63,000, and they
irere made against the Naval Hoe
pital fund, doubtless for the ream
on that this fund, being derived
from the assessment of 20 cents a
month upon each of the officers
and men of the Navy, was Jess
likely to be closely looked after
than the regular .annual appropri
ations for the-bureau. Frauds in
this bureau, moreover, seem to
have been made possible largely
of omitting the wise precaution
exercised in other .bureaus, of
having a receiving officer's certifi
cate upon the voucher,its~elf.
In the course of the examnina
t'inn Mr. -Chandler said '"I don't
wish to shirk any *spofirshtbty
which belongs to me. I nam mor
kiftel and h'imiliated that not*ith

before i went into the depamettnt,
they have continued more or less in
this bureau since I have beeh over

The results of the recent change
in letter postage cannot be dehi
nitely estimated until the expira
tion of the fiscal year in which
the new two cent rate went into
opperation, which will-he october

that the revenues of the depart
ment will show a considerable in
crease, or such an increase .at
least as to justify the late reduc
tion, and possibly. to. warrant a
still farther cheapening of rates.
