From lime to time Tim Critic has
given publicity to certain abuse that
exist in the workhouse and other de
partments that come under the Jurisdic
tion of the District Government. Now,
a story comes from the workhouse that
will most certainly stand Investigation
if the facts as alleged can be verltled.
On Juno 21, as tho court records
show. Richard Murray was sent to the
workhouse for ninety days for vagrancy.
On Tuewlay. July 8, Murray com
plalntd that he was til and in no condi
tion to go out and work with the chain
gang. Recause he protested, he was
placed in what they call the "glad"
room.
"Why do they give it the name of
the 'glad' roomf' asked a Chitic
reporter.
"Because that every one that ever
gs in there is glad to get out," was the
reply.
In this room there Is bo bed or place
to lay down, except the stone Uoor, and
the ventilation mlaUt be lainroved.
Murray's allowance la the way of
ration, as reported, was a piece of
corn chuck two leches wide, three
inches long aad oae Inch thick. To
wash this down the udoaer was gives
an allowance of one half pint of hydrant
water every twenty-four hours.
Dr. Mohuu, who attended Murray,
gave as bis medical opinion that be was
shamming, but from other sources
comes the information that while In
the "glad room" Murray was suffering

New York, July 17. The White
Star Liner Teutonic arrived yesterday
after a remarkably good passage.whfch
comes within two or three hours of
breaking the record of the City of
Pails. Her estimated time is 5 days, 21
bouts ami about 55 minutes. She was
not expected until last evening or pos
sibly this morning.
The Teutonic is thus the second ves
sel to cross the Atlantic In less than six
days. The City of Paris was the first
vessel to win that distinction. She
crossed In May, 1880, in 5 days, $
hours aud 7 minutes. In July she
crossed In 5 days, 88 hours ami 10 min
utes, and In August she came over In 5
days, 10 hours and 18 minutes, which
has since then remained the record.
But tho Teulmlc covered fifty miles
more than did the City of Paris. The
Paris' average was SO knots an hour.
The average of the Teutonic was 10.00
knots an hour. The days' runs of the
Teutonic were 47-1, -100. -133, 101, 401
and 407 mlliw, and the whole distance
covered was 2,883 miles. The weather
was very fine.

There was not tho slightest traco of

Nkw YoitK, July 17. The IfernW
Washington correspondent telegraphs:
Without attempting to bewilder the
public mind with the complexity of the
financial condition of the Treasury I
may stato that a grave situation Is dis
closed by facts now admitted by those
In authority.
On the 14th of August noxt the Silver
Coinage act becomes operative. Upon
that day tho amount hold by tho United
States Treasurer for tho redemption of
the circulating notes In the hands of the
public of discontinued national banks
will be turned into tho Treasury as a
miscellaneous receipt and used for tho
general expenditures of tho Govern
ment. Tho oxact amount so to bo used
cannot nt this momout be anticipated,
but It will probably be as much as 33,
000,000. a Tnt'ST fund ArrnorntATED.
Uy tho act of Coneress covering this
trust fund Into thoTroasury the amount
is Immediately appropriated and ovory
dollar of it lias got to bo paid out. The
necessity for this legislation is bawd
upon the fact of a bankrupt Treasury,
and tho real truth is that tho amount
nmiestcred is a forced loan. On tho
Milt day of August the Indebtedness of
tho United Slates will be increased by
neatly 00,000.000, and the books of
the I nlted Statos Treasurer will actu
ally show such Increase. Under the
spt clous argument of releasing that
amount of money and putting It Into
citculatlon Congress has been compelled
to make this forced loan.
The plausible statement that It will
avoid a deficit In the Treasury Is In
stsnily answered by the undeniable
fsct that every dollar of It belongs to
private citizens of the United States, to
whom every dollar of it will have to be
paid. The payment of Interest on the
bonds of the United States Is not more
solemnly assured. Therefore, the
amount, whether $50,000,000 or f80,
000,000, will be Juit so much actual In
crease of the debt of the Government.
DKSfKKATK AI.TKKNATIVKS.
In plainer language. Congress had
us cuoice oi iorciug this money into
the Treasury as an involuntary loan or
of covering Into the Treasury fifty mil
lions of the one hundred millions of
dollars held as the legal tender reserve.
This is the much vaunted Immediate
relief of the Treasury which the extrav
agance of Congress has made neeessary.
The condition of the appropriations,
compelling the Government to become
a borrower in the face of tariff legisla
tion, sh&rply exposes the hollow mock
ery of the farce now being enaeted un
der the title of the McKInley bill. Let
It be hereafter remembeied that on
August 1 1, 1800, the Government of the
United States was obliged to force Its
citizens, by compulsory legislation, to
lend it fifty odd millions of dollars in
the midst of piping times of peace and
properlty.

"Has White ewajieil T" This was
the question that passed from tongue to
tongue on the Avenue last night. Some
one who evidently had a desire to
create a sensation started this rumor in
cluulatton, and the false report went
like wild fire to all sections of the city.
"You can venture all the money you
have," said an old timer, at the cornef
of Sixth street and Pennsylvania ave
nue last night, "that If this young
devil escaped It was not while Jim
Sprlngman had him in custody. He
may have crept through the lwrs at the
jail, but he never slipped through Jim's
lingers."
As stated In Tits Cittxic White was
driven to tho jail In company with Mr.
Sprlngman, and the latter gentleman
saw that ho was
SKCl'ilRI.Y I.ODOKD
behind the grates of the jail before he
came down town and responded to the
call as a witness before the court in the
Ulock case.
White talked freely with his custodian
on the way to the jail, and ridiculed the
Idea of having to suffer for the "petty
offenses" that he was charged with.
"Isn't it ridiculous to think," said
he, "that I should get myself Into this
trouble for the small sum of fOO.when
1 have always had access to Mr.
Coming's bank account, which at times
has amounted to $10,000. My only
Intention In going to Kentucky was to
njuare myself in some little matters,
and had 1 been let alone I would have
succeeded, sure pop."
Fortunately hlte has a largn num
ber of ftlcnds who will stand by him
through his troubles, and they are
very, very anxious to see him get out,
even If he has to leave Washington.
Tiik Chitic was the only per to
glvu Information to the effect that cer
tain friends of White were willing to
put up the uecessary money to close up
the financial accounts against him.
There is much more truth than Action
to this rumor. It has been given out
that all of White's correspondence has
been destroyed, but such It not the case,
as there are certain letters In possession
of his friends which will almost cer
tainly gain him his freedom.
White Is cute enough to know that
he controls the means by which he can
obtain the necessary Influence ami
possibly the $2,000 ball. Some ot the
families would, It Is said, rather sacri
fice $2,000 than have publicity given
some of

At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon a
gentleman well known in the clubs aad
about town drove up to Police Head
iuarters and bad a eonferenee with the
otHcers In regard to bavlag Mr. White's
little difficulty squared up, providing
all criminal proceedings were sus
pended. The story still goes round that White
is

met, at the time Indicated, In a committee-room
on the Senate side. The ques

the topic of conversation. The result
was one of the most interesting political
symposiums this year has yet seen. Uy
a singular chance every man in the
room was. opposed to President Harri
son. They were unanimous In the opin
ion that he Is an Impossibility. Like a
meeting in Iloccaccio's "Decameron,"
the Senators each in turn related his
story. They were monotonous on one
thing that of President Harrison's un
popularity In the relator's State. Thsre
was not an exception or break In this

general that if the nominating conven

They feel they have a right to dictate

nothing Incongruous In their gravely

what was beat for the party.
The decision arrived at was that Sen
ator Allison should make the running
for Iowa and Senator Culbm for Illi

himself sod friends, for himself.
Whenever it was found that wttk both
ia the field neither could be nominated,
then the one showing the greater
strength and believed to have the better
chances was to be made the candidate
ot both.
Senator Cameron of Pentuyivatda will
be a candidate, if it be thought neces

the field.
