Ninth Annua! ltcpnrt lnrrrasii of llusl ncss Larger tlian Any I'mvloiin Vein A Practical Working and Successful Oo-I punitive limlltutlim Now Issue of Stock This .Month. ErjUITAIIM. HUlt.PINIl, 1003 V Stiiebt, Washington, D. 0., Nov. 11, 1WS. To the Stockholder of the EiptUaUe Co-ojiriatirc Untitling Association: In this report will bo found strong ad ditional ami coiivlhclng ptoofs, of tho sound principles upon which our association Is es tablished and conducted. Tho figures given, showing tho transactions of Iho association at tho close of Its ninth year, tell, in unmistaka ble terms, that tlio Equitable Is woi king for tho good of all Its members, whether bor rowers or lnvesto rs. That they arc realizing actually the fullest practical benefits of truo co-opcruuou. To encourage regular monthly eavlmrs of small amounts upon stock, which pioduees fair profits and accumulations, aud to make advances to purchase property at reasonable rates of Interest, anil upon advantageous terms, Is tho object nnd purpose of the asso ciation. We aro sure tho Equitable Is carry ing out this, upon as nitre co-operative prin ciples ns possible. It lias been tho earnest de termination of the ofllccrs and members, In a spirit of accord, nnd by conservative methods, to do so. Tlio receipts, tho number of sharos Issued, tho amount, of advances mado to tho mem ber's, and tho assets havo each Increased dur ing tho past twelve mouths, exceeding In amount those of any preceding year. Tho receipts havo been for tho year ending October 15, 1888, $014,030.00, tho monthly average belilg $711,4 111.111 'lho receipts wero $203,001.71, moru than last jcar. Tho yearly average receipts for nine years have been $420,220.20. Tho amount of monthly pay incuts, or savings on stock, nt $2.50 per share, for the past year, has been $377,723.01, or nil average of Jill ,177.43 per month; $2."0,lf2.03 In the same time has been returned on stock to the members, making the net Increase In stock, this year, $127,371.01. I' poll tho amount returned, $11,181,113 profits wcro real ized. Tho total receipts to date from payments on stock havo been $1,SS5,S'.)1.07; of this $1,005, 100.13 has been returned with $37,731.00 protits. Tho largo ntnouut returned to tho shareholders promptly when applied for ac cording to tho rules has been used lu pur chasing or building houses and various other purposes, Indicating tho vast number of poo tilo that havo been nided by the association and tho wido range tho transactions must have covered. It is believed that those who havo saved In such small sums, aggregating and realizing amounts so laigc, could not havo accom plished as much, except by tho system prac ticed in tills association. Tho average per cctit. upon advances dur ing tlio past year has been 07 per cent., which is very near tho ruling rates of interest that money commands. In tho outsldo market. It Is maintained that the nearer the ruling rates of iuterest upon which advances are mado, thereby yielding fair and safo earnings to tho saving or Investing members, tho greater tho success. Advancing money to members at fair rates of Interest and paying fair and euro profits to the Invcstois makes u practical co-operative money-saving und loaning instltututloii. The number of 6hurcs on tho books ad vanced upon ai o 1,011.1 ; actlvo shares not ad vanced upon, 11,312.S; total, 12,3."3.0; gain over last year, 1,00:2.8. The sixteenth issuo Is now opetl for subscriptions, tho llrst payment on which Is duo this month, November. Tho ndvauecs to members during tho year wcro $585,000. an averaco each mouth of $19,- 825, and $108,300 more than last year. Tho total amount of advances havo been $2,538, 000, of which $1,084,973 has been settled. No borrower tho past year has become suf ficiently delinquent upon his payments as to necessitate a sale of security under his deed of trust, und the fact still exists that lu but ono Instance has tho association over been forced to forccloso a mortgage, and then no loss was sustained. To exhibit such a record, wo can well foel grutlfled. It means a great deal. It shows tho promptness of, the byirowcr, and his suc cess In what ho has undertaken to do. It also testifies lotliacarefiil and accurate estimates of tho securities, accepted by tho association. Tho assets during tho year Increased $15'.), 017,30, making the totnl assets $071,539.01; at tho same ratio, It will readily bo seen that, In the near future, tho association will havo n million of dollars of assets. Tho tendency of tho association to promoto economy, thrift and saving, resulting In so largo au accumulation of funds, constantly appllcd, as it Is, to tlio purchase of property, mil lut ng purposes, vc, must no considered as having an iuipnitaut and favorable Influence directly nnd Indirectly, upon tho business operations of tho District aud tho prosperity of tho people, Tho Iloard of Directors this year submit and recommend, for tho consideration and adop tion by tho association, of two amendments to tho Constitution. Tho first Is to section 7, artlclo 12, to amend by striking out tho wonts "less the amount of accrued lines." At present, a shareholder becoming twclvo mouths In an cat sis entitled, upon application, to a return of the amount ho has paid on his stock, less flues, and his shares are forfeited. Tho amendment Is to return the amount paid without any deduction. This Is considered mora just nnd proper, Tho second amendment is to section 2, artl clo 12, Inserting tho word "thrco" Instead of "twelve" Tho effect Is to allow Interest upon withdrawals in three months from dato of subscription, Instead of requiring tho period of twclvo months. From oxperlencotho board deems this action desirable, that it would prove mora of a benefit to tho shareholders and mora satisfactory to the association. As tho association has grown mid Its transac tions enlarged the work and responsibility of tho ofllccrs have Increased, requiring greater caro anu moro uccuraio judgment in me man agement and conduct of Its affairs, The Presldcut cheerfully bears testimony to the ability nnd fidelity In which tho officers, tho Hoard of Directors and the committees havo performed their respective duties. The constitution and rules governing the associa tion havo been faithfully und promptly ob served, In consequence of which tho associa tion has prospered, become more popular.nnd, I feel convinced, Is on the road to even greater achievements.

Tho unimproved country lying between Rock Creek and tho Tcnloytown and Woodley Lano roads, and known as "Mont gomery Heights," Is tlio property alluded to.

Tlio llrst work done will be the cutting through of boulevards from tho bridge, tapping tho Woodley Lane roud and lho Teniiallytowu road. This will make a short cut to Oak View nnd country surrounding Instead of driving around by Woodley Park or through Georgetown. Thcro has been qulto a movement In small sulmtban properties during tho past week, anil while no very lnrgo sales have been made, a number of scattering deals 6hows an Interest in out-of-town property.

So far as tho Dlstilct Is concerned, big bets aro over. Hero and thcro can bn found n couploof Department clerks who are willing to wngcr $5 nnd $10 on tho result. Hut lu Now YoiM cl'y, especially around iho Hoffman, the desire to bet iticro.ne ns thu tlmu grows apaco. Tho Democratic -porting men aro eager to give odds on Clovelaud, but cau llnd few takers. Last night nt tho Hodman House John Allen Induced Georgo I'owcro, ot llrooklyu, to bet 11,000 even on tho result. Allen put his money on Cleveland. Pollco i nininls sloncr French accepted tho Offer of James McCorrnaclt, tho well-known turfman, and placed $3,400 on Han Isou against 50,000 of McCormack's money. At the St. James Hotel last night Jerry Mahoncy planked up $9,000 on Cleveland's election, Tho bet was covored by a gentle man who was said to bo a representative of lloss Quay, Philadelphia. Tho amount put up bv tho stranger was $8,000. Ste'vo French holds $1,500 belonging to Col. William L. Drown, and $1,200 of Obed Wheeler's money. Col. llrowu bets that Indiana will go for Cleveland.

No ono could bo iouiki to accept tuo net. inu impression is that the Democrats havo a motive lu their re fusal. They want to encourage tho Republi cans, ami when least expected, come back at them and accept every bet oltcied. At Hoston tho profcslonal betters are quoted as saying Its almost Impossible to llnd n man willing to risk money on Harrison. ,At tho Qutncv Houso Frank Richardson made abet of $300 to $100 on Cleveland. Tho money was covered by Maj. Draw, of Concord, N. II. A number of $5 and SI0 bets wcio re corded. Tom McKenna, of New York, bet $23 that Cleveland would bo elected.

In Haltlmore veslcrday two prominent Democrats wanted" to bet Mr. Johnston, Re publican, $1,000 to $700 that Cleveland would bo elected. They teased Johusou so much that ho went out nnd borrowed tho money, nnd when ho offered to put It uptlio Democrats backed down.

So far as tho llrltlsh Government Is con cerned tho Sackvlilo troublo Is over for the present. Hon. Michael Henry Herbert has been appointed llrltlsh Chargo d'Affalrs at Washington. Lord Snckvlllo will now go to England on leave of ubs -uco. The rumor that Lord Dufferhi would succeed Minister West Is ridiculed In diplomatic circles. Lord Dufferln H at prceiit tho llrltlsh Ambassador at Roma, nnd ns tho United States Is only regatdod ns a third rato mission by Emrlatid, and tlio salary about ono half that of tho post at Rome, it would not bo natural to suppose that Lord Duffcrlu would resign to accept Mlulstor cst's position here, Atli miring ttie .Station' (Hade, It lias been Intimated within tho past fow days that lu tlio light of past oxporlenccs and tho present diplomatic blunder, England will advunro tho United States mission to second, if not the llrst class, and send 11 representative hcio who will bo able to deal with every rxl gency that may arise, Persons In position to know say thero Is no truth lu the stories circulated that Lord Salisbury will vent his spleen upon Minister Phelps by asking our Minister to rcslsrn. ft Just beforo Lord Sackvlilo received tho let ter from Secretary Dayurd Informing him of tho Pi csldent's action, ho wroto Iho Trcasitiy Department thiough Secretary Hayard asking the prlvllecc ot linnorilnc free of dutv sninc Valuable household goods that had been re ceived nt the Haltlmore Cintom-Hoiiso. After receiving notlllcatloti that he would bo recog nised no longer us the British Mlulstor, l-ord Sackvlilo accordingly rotlllcd, his represenbi tlvo in Haltlmore to hold the goods until further advised. Tho Acting Socrotary of the Treasury has ordered, on tho application of tho Statu Detiartmout, that tho goods bo ad mitted free ot duty. Likely to Kcinnln Hern. Lord Sackvlilo Is still In Washington, and from all that can bo learned, Is likely tb re main licro for some dayd. T.ord Sackvlilo seems to havo Instructed tho 'employes and attaches of tho Legation to say nothing to any one, undo any clrcutnitnnces, lelativo to his proposed movemonts. All attempts to securo information from tho Togatlou nro futile. It Is learned, however, that bo has announced his determination to somo ot bis friends to glvo out a statement for publication before his departure. This statement will doubtless coutalu his views upon Secretary Bayard's course, but It is not likely that It will bo ot any Croat im portance from a political or dlplomatlcal standpoint. Thcro Is a well-dctinod belief In diplomatic circles hero that Lord Sackvlilo. has been u&surcd by Lord Salisbury that his lu dlscrctlou will not causa him to bo dealt with severely by by his homo Government; aud, lu fact, a statement was made to-day by a gentleman who Is very well posted lu diplo matic matters, nnd wlio has been connected tor years with tho diplomatic service of tho United States, to the effect that Lord Sack vlilo will lu all probability be sent to thu mis sion at St. Petersburg, 'ibis gentleman said further that the current stories relative to Lord Saekvllle's domestic relations aro unfounded. STILL AltUSIXa US. The London Tross Still Harping on the Sackvlilo Incident. London, Nov. 3.-1116 English press con tinues to abuso tho President nnd America for tho Sackvlilo Incident, Tho Daily News says: "Wo hear much vaguo ubuso of American politicians, hut tho misfortune ot America Is that her citizens are uot political enough. When tho mass of the pcoplo abandon poli tics to those who make of It u profession or a game, tho result may uot bo jobbery or cor ruption, which nro tnr less common in thu United States than hasty bookmakers havo asserted, but ceitulnly destrojed tho moral perspective of public men, so that such trifles as tho temporary aliernitlon of a respectable diplomatist are enough to convulse, halt the continent." Tho Chroulclo says: "We ore still walling to lD-'iru.wliat Her Majesty's Government pro poses to do with tho Insult to our .Minister and through him to this country. Dlplomntlo relations between tlio two nations have, lu tho rudest possible mauner, been severed by thu action of President Cleveland. "It President Cleveland Is of opinion that It consorts with his dlgulllcd position to ubuso himself and his country before tho O'Reillys, Collinses and other Iilsli demagogues, and to preserve his rudeness for nccredlted dplotnaf Ists of friendly powers, It Is uot llrltlsh busi ness to attempt Ills conversion, but 11 Is our duty to resent Insult put upon us as promptly as It wasolTeied."

Newton anu Lavendar uppearnl for Abuer and Robeit Christy for Mltklewlcz. Tho facts conceded wcro that prior to leav ing forChlna tho Count had transferred to Robert Christy Intrust all his interest lu tho famous Chinese concessions that might be obtained, and also his Interest In such con tracts and agreements ns existed between lilm nnd Whartou Haiker ami his associates of Philadelphia. Tho Interest was stated at a faco value of $2,!i00,000; that there wero tlneo classes of bcnellclarlcs tho family of the count, persons who had mado ndvauecs and kindred services with respect to tho Interest, and the residue so far as necessary to be applied to tho payment of tho general ci editors of tho court. Tho precise question submitted to thu court was whether tho Interest In tho hands ot tho trustee, which had been attempted to bu reached by a writ a garnishment, was sub ject to condemnation.

Her Companion In Crime Sent to Albany fur a Shorter Period, Mary J. Mcllrlde, convl6ted of househunt Ing, was again brought Into tho Criminal Court for sentence today. When tlio ordinary question ns to whether sho had anything to my beforo sentence, sho rather startled tho people lu tho court room by aniionricliig In n very positive tono of voice, "Yes, I havo a great deal to say." Hut tho sttrprlso Increased when sho undid a roll ot manuscript and proceeded to read u lengthy argument, Intended to show hcruV solttta Innocence. Tho speech was qulto efflorescent In language, but was nt tho sumo time ono of tho must creditnblo arguments heard In tho court-room for somo lime. Sho began by sajlng that tho verdict was not Just: that tin) house was burned, nnd that, sho had an Insurance ot $2,000 on It she did not deny; hut sho did deny that she had nny motive for such :i course, because the benefit from the lusuranco would not cctnponsato her for hor los. "Tilo truo motive," sho said, "becamo known 011 tlio day when It was found that my servant hail robbed my houso of a bureau, and oeusieaii, taKuu irom sn ituuscu tyom 011 inn top floor." She referred to the testimony of Fire Mar shal Drew that tho preparations for tho tiro might hnvo lasted ten minutes or inlatit havo tnlion halt an hour, In connection with tho ovldenco ot her absence finni tho house. As to tho preparation In her room, she sucgcstoil that if sho had been anxious to conceal any guilty act, sho would probably havo chc&uii somo other person's room Regarding Col. Tracv, sho said that wcro It not for tho fact that 11 certain ptirtlou of tho ar rangements for combustion had not been Urcd, and that this portion could not havo been fired by anybody unless they passoil him, this fsmlllarlty with McFarlaiid lu drinking wltU him that morning might go to show that hu was cognizant of what" was golug 011. "Not much,'' sho said, "Is duo from me to Mr. Tracv, but truth Is due to every ouo, even to Mr. Tracy." She referred to tho Dugan letter, saying that sho acknowledged tho similarity in handwrit ing, but pronounced tho charges agulust bee lu connection with It as a prosecution on her sanity. Sho was extremely ulttcr in her denunciation of Detective Raff, whom sho styled a Mephls tophcles, coming to tho cell ot McFarlaud to tempt him to swear nway her liberty. Tho newspapers wero touched upou lu 110 very' complimentary strain referring to tho mysteri ous power which can set lu motion or stay tho ruportorlal quill, Sho Intimated that sho would submit to tho sentenco lu order to ap peal to higher power. Her address lasted nu hour nndflvo minutes. After sho had concluded Judgo Montgomery reminded her that her address, whlla It wa her right to make It, was one which should bo mado to tho Jury, Sho had been tried twice, aud lioth times ably defended. Sho was sentenced to the penitentiary at Albauy for four years. Sho did not say u word or mako a demonstration. , John W. McFarland, charged as Iter accom plice, was noxt called and T. C. Taylor spokd in his behalf. McFarland at Its closo told his shin of tha story. Ho said that ho thought thcro was no harm In removing tho furniture that he did. Ilo said that, after being dragged through this persecution by tho Government, uud when ho had no other friends to turn to, tho Government becamo his worst enemy. Judgo .Montgomery said that upon the theory that ho was Miss Mcllrldo's servant, and sho his employer, tho law, ho thought, would bo satisfied with a somowhat less ecn fence. Ho was sentenced to thrco yenrs in tho penitentiary. Au appeal to tho Court in General Term was taken In each case. CAII0IIT AT LAST. Ouo or the llliiody Hiitlluld Gang Cap' tin oil ami Jailed.
