TREFIGET ON $ECRETARY GAGE.
While Alger was Secretary of War

much of the criticism on the conducl
of Alger's manasemtnt o' the wa. de

ltidns introdured jin Congress ediing
for papers and facts in reference tc
the Trexsurer's deaiings with cert'ir
banks, especially the National City

the ssleu( the old cu,stom-hou-e is
"This sa!e was made under a specia]
-act of Congress, which provided thst
the Government should continue to
occupy it as a tenant, and pay the
pnrcbaser a rental equal to 4 per ce:n
of the purchase price. The sale was
for $3.265,000. 'lhe precident of the
Nation-l City Bank, it is said, went to
Washington with a certified check for
$3,225,350 en his own bank, which
was presented to Secre:ary Gage, and
immediately returned by himu for de
posit in 'he National City Bazk. B1
this payment of all but $40,009 't ta

ow-ner of the building, and the Govern

year. The bank has in fact revcr
paid on a cent. Al! of its money i
in its vaults for use, and has been ai;
the time. And altho the sale i ac
tually made the deed; have not been
passed-theoretically because of the
$40,000 still unpaid-but evidently f;r
the purpose of keeping the property in
the name of the federal Government,
and tbereby exempting it from local
tax tion. This is a most extraordinau y

"When the Repub!ican ni:tional G 3:i

says The Republican, "Mr. McKitil
as chairman of the comm e on Ies:
