HAMILTON, JOB & CO.
Interesting Object Lesson In' Crude
ConvALLia, Oct. 22. W. T. Branch,
tbe expert appointed to examine the
books and accounts of tbe bankiug Ann
of Hamilton, Job fc Co., for seven years
post, bas presented bis- report. Tbe
books of tile firm were found to have
been very carelessly kept. No trlul
balance of tbe general ledger had been
made ut any time, and any eflort to
balance accounts was made dally by
computing the amounts received add
the amounts disbursed, and any discrep
ancies were charged to tbe "long and
short" account, which account, at the
close of business June 9, showed a debit
of $2,038.32. The capital sjock of the
hou60 wasOjOOOjlSOO of which wns
to tbe credit of. ZepBln -Job antdj$21.GO0
to the credlt.of B. R. Job. The former,
however, in indebted to the bank-in the
sum of $17,454, and the latter $7002 19.
The- expense In the conduct of tbe busi
ness from January 1, 1887, to January
9, 1893, and chargeable to tbe expense
account, is $28,925 44, and losses on long
and short account are $2038 32. The
revenues derived from tbe business
were: From the interest fund, $29,
105.10; from the discount fund, $955.67.
This amount (38,062 73) shows tbe net
profit of the house for 0J years to have
All accounta or notes of tbe bank,
whether good or bad, have been treated
as good. There was invested in real
estate $20,240.13, In which Is included
$4,970.88 for which the books do not
give auy information. Tbe Niagara
Mill company owes tbe bank a balance
of $43,034.84. The Messrs. Job were
the largest holders of stock in tne mill
and advanced money freely. The mill
property will most likely realize very
much less than it cost.
Tbe bills receivable account calls for
notes to tbe amount of$102,709.77. An
Inventory of the notes found in tbe bank
amounts to only $78,384.34, a shortage
of $24,315.43. No records were kept of
tbeso notes, so It Is impossible to tell
what notes are missing. It is believed,
however, that two uotes, amounting to
$13,500, given by Jacob & Neugass,
were used to purchase half of tbe lot
aud building adjoining tbe bank build
ing. Tbe property was bought for $17,
000 and these notes used in payment,
but no record was made of tbe transac
tion. The same may be said of tbe
purchase of the Cauthom warehouse
a.id the property mortgaged by T. J.
Blair to secure certain notes, and which
was sold under execution to Messrs.
Job. No entries were ever made of
these matters. These notes, together
with a few hundred dollars of outlawed
notes, will practically make up the de
ficiency. The expert Is satisfied that no funds
were diyei ted from the proper care of
tho bank by either of the Messrs. Job,
except in the purchase of tbe mill pro
perty and Its subsequent account, aud
the purchase of the real estate men
tioned. The valuation set upon tbe as-i
setB of tho firm by the assignee is upon
the supposed depreciation always oc
casioned by the closlugofany business,
and shows a large deficit, Tho ultl-
mato result as to tbe amount of the div
idend, Bays tho report, will depend large

Whiskers was the chief subject of dis
cussion at a rather informal meeting of
the Ministers' alliance yesterday morn
ing. When Dr. Armstrong appeared
with a freshly shaven upper lip and a
face as devoid of hirsute adornment as a
new born babe's, the subject was found,
and he was promptly called upon to ad-'
dress the alliance upon the "Rise and
Fall of tho Mustache." Dr. Armstrong
told how he had cnt oil his mustache
and nearly scared bis little ones to death.
Upon being questioned he admitted that
the operation was performed late Sun
day night, bnt said that it was done for
the good of his congregation and for the
Improvement of his voice. Ho wanted
the word of God to proceed from the
month clear and plain and distinct, un
hindered by any obstruction. He closed
his remarks by saying that he had sac
rificed his beauty for tho benefit of his
congregation, and that he was aware
that the moro his face was covered the
better looking ho was.
Dr. Tigert responded with a fervent
"That's so," and Dr. Armstrong came
back at him by saying ho had already
been mistaken for Dr. Tigert.
Dr, Haley said he thought all ministers
should either ba smooth shaven or wear
a full beard. The doctor himself sup
ports a very luxuriant beard, slightly
tinged with gray, and it was thought that
his opinion might therefore be biased.
He urged all young ministers to shun
the alluring mustache unless backed up
with a crop of chin whiskers. A mus

ONE WAY TO CROSS THE COUNTRY.
The Second Class Tourist Parties That Now
Go Quickly, Cheaply and Merrily.
It is now possible to cross the conti
nent to San Francisco and make friends
in tho way and have as jolly a time as
when you cross tho Atlantic on a fast
liner in tho same number of days. That
nsed not to bo so. The old way was
to tako a .numbered seat in a sleeping
car and go through with the chance
that no ono but the conductor and the
train newsboy would over speak to you.
Tho new way is by means of what aro
called tourists' excursions. They are
run at second class rates, but on the
fastest time and with special cars. Tho
conductors will tako a first class passen
ger if Buch a one should offer himself.
There aro at least two of these compa
nies running personally conducted excur
sions over opposition lines, and both ad
vertise, very low rates and quick time.
The cars are plenty good, enough for
anybody, but are not as ornate as tho
regular palace cars. In them the peoplo
start at New York or Boston and go
through without change, eating their
meals in dining cars out as far as Coun
cil Bluffs, if they want to, and stopping
at dining stations along the rest of each
route. A great many, who push to tho
farthest extreme that economy which
is tho distinctive characteristic of such
carloads, carry their own fare with them
in baskets and either buy nothing but
tea and coffee or even make that for
themselves on tho road.
The passengers in tho first class coaches
on the same trains are quickly made
aware of tho fact that their trains carry
these tourist parties, for they hear the
laughter and singing and romping of tho
tourists, who by the end of the second
day out are all acquainted with one
another and bent on having a jolly and
fraternal time. They share their deli
cacies, their paper covered novels and
their hopes and fears with ono another,
stream out of the cars in great parties
when there is a long stop to gather flow
ers or to "take in a new town," and in
all ways fraternize as though they had
all known each other for years.
The circular of one of these excursion
companies announces that it "guards its
patrons against the presence of the im
migrant and the untidy" and against
the intrusion of tho way passengerT
Everything that will contribute to tho
general pleasure is welcomed, but noth
ing offensive is tolerated. Some of tho
cars have smoking rooms, but if there is
one without it the men must go forward
to the regular train smoker to enjoy
their pipes and cigars. A special con
ductor goes with each party and saves
the tourists the annoyance of being
awakened to show then: tickets during
Tho tourist cars look like regular
sleepers in tho raw, being built on tho
same plan, but not finished with the
same elegance. Unlike the immigrant
sleepers, they are equipped with car
pets, curtains, mattresses, blankets,
sheets, pillows, pillowcases, towels,
combs, brushes, etc., requiring nothing
of the kind to be furnished by the pas
senger. Each car has a stove for the
making of tea and coffee, and each sec
tion can be fitted with an adjustable
table. A uniformed colored porter ac

Anointed the Bridegroom.
There is a row in tho firo department.
It grew out of a joke played upon ono of
the paid men attached to Hose 17, who
was to be married last night.
Before dressing for the ceremony he
went to the bathroom to have a bath.
The boys had previously removed the
lock from the door, and when he got in
to the tank they made their appearance
and gave him a liberal painting with
ointment used on horses' hoofs. His
body was smeared with the Bticky stuff,
and then ho was scrubbed down with
brushes and water.
A neighboring druggist was applied to,
who recommended oil to remove the
stuff. This only set the ointment all the
harder, aud the victim bad to don his
clothes and go to his wedding with his

The Iloyal Oak.
The Royal Oak, first class British bat
tle ship, which was launched iu 1693,
will, it is expected, be ready to be
handed ovor to the naval authorities by
the end of October. Her length is 880
feet; beam, 75 feet; draft, 27 feet 0
inches, giving a displacement of 14,150
tons; her engines will give 18,000 horse
power, which is calculated to give her a
speed of 17J knots. She will be pro
tected by armor 18 inches thick along
the water lina aud 4 inches thick above,
the armored bulkheads to bo 10 inches
thick, and the barbettes will be plated to
a thickness of 17 inches. Her heaviest
guns will be four 07 ton guns, bat she
will carry in addition a powerful arma
ment of quick firincr and machine guns
and torpedo fittings. The Resolution and
Revenge, of tho Baino size and power, are
also in process of completion at Barrow,
and will probably be taken over from
the builder before the end of the year.

Baron Pricks, a Russian nobleman,
living in Copeuhagefi, has just turned

his eccentricities had put him indisgrrce

and, happy as a tramp, he is traveling
now with one colored man. two mon

Tho DlnckUst of Paris Tailors.
In Paris tho Tailors' syndicate is pro'
paring a new edition of their blackbcok,
which was originally published 17 years
ago. The blackbook contains the names
and descriptions of those persons who do
not pay for their clothing. Onco a man
is inscribed iu it he is unablo to obtain
clothing at any establishment unless he
is prepared to pay cash before delivery.
The work in question contains a num
ber of curious details with regard to the
delinquents abhorred of tailordom.
Among them aro 254 tradesmen and only
1 concierge; 185 commercial travelers to
2 priests and 2 antiquaries; 94 students to
8 translators, 8 hairdressers,- 8 waiters
and 8 house painters; 81 publicans, and,
curiously enough, precisely the same
