Washington, Aug. s.— The consolidation
of the internal revenue district will be car
ried forward on the 7th and 15th inst., and
Ist of September. On the latter .date the
whole scheme which was announced by
President Arthur on June 25 will be in ac
tive operation. Some difficulty has been
experienced in relation to the filing of
bonds and a number have been returned
on account of irregularities. It is an in
teresting fact to note in this connection
that the treasury department does not per
mit any bondsmen to limit their liability.
They are all bound severally and jointly
for the full amount of their bonds, and in
some cases where figures have been placed
opposite their signatures the treasury de
partment has at once rejected (the entire
bond as worthless. The postoffice depart
ment, however, allows bondsmen to
limit their liability, as has been the custom
for irsany years.
Commissioner Evans seems to have bit
ten oi' more than he can chew in his rul
ing that the Hostetter Bittera company's
manufactures shall hereafter be governed
by laws regulating the sale of alcoholic
beverages. It is the opinion of some of
the oldest and ablest officials in the inter
nal revenue bureau that the government
cannot successfully prosecute the suit
which is now being prepared by the United
States district attorney at Pittsburg, Pa.
If this case is brought to jury trial, as it
looks a3 though it would, the government
will lose the fight which Evans brought.
The manufacturers claim, and this claim
is allowed by the internal revenue bureau,
that under the present ruling their busi
ness will be completely wrecked. Fully
three-fourths of their customers would
rather give up the sale of bitters than take
out licenses as venders of alcoholic liquors.
This the bitters men say means ruin for
them, and their figfrt will simply be a
struggle for existence.
The story telegraphed from this city
purporting to disclose a scheme for the
acquisition of the Mexioan state of Chi
huahua by the United States through the
connivance of the Americans in Chihua
hua, who are to dissolve the state from
Mexico and apply for admission to the
United States, is very generally and unan
imously discredited in official circles here.
The revised form upon which after the
10th inst. brewerb are to make their re
turns will give the public more knowledge
in regard to the ingredients of beer than
it has been possible heretofore to obtain.
Under the law regulating brewers they
have been required to keep two books, one
contr.ining the record of the amount
manufactured and 6ales, and
the ether the kind and amount
of materials used. They have
not been required to forward
tran?r."ipts of their material back to the
collectors, though the law provides that
these books shall always be open to the
collector or any authorized agent. In
practice these books have been very im
perfectly kept, and many brewers have not
kept them at all. The use of glucose,
corn, rice, and various decoctions is be
lieved to be so general that several months
since a new revision of form 18, the one
upon which brewers make out their month
ly returns, was approved and sent out, and
the first returns under it must be made to
oollector3 Friday of next week. This form
not only calls for a statement, und er oath,
of the more usual ingredients other than
malt and hops, fuch as corn, cerealine,
rice, grapes, sugar, suoase, maltese and
syrup, but it requires a sworn statement
of every other kind of adulteration,
and • the amount and use of
each article. This return is to be made
monthly to collectors, in duplicate, and
one copy is to be forwarded by collectors
to the office of the internal revenue. Each
brewer is required to mnke oath that the
statement of ingredients used in the man
ufac'.'jre of his beer is true and correct in
every particular. ■ It will thus
be seen that hereafter the cora
position of beer will be known.

The action of the secretary of war in
dismissing from the military academy Ca
det Hartigan, of the first class, will not
only not be reversed, but if the superin
tend;-:. -.. should ascertain the names of
tho«<? associated with Hartigan, they too,
it is said at the war department will be
summarily dismissed. As it is, a number
of cadets of the first class have been given
extra hears of duty, and restricted in their
privileges, while those of the third class,
some seven or eight in number, are in
formed that there will be no cadet fur
lough for them next year. Immediately
after Cadet Hartigan was dismissed he
oame to Washington and addressed a let
ter to the secretary of war, complaining
that the greatest injustice had been done
him, and asking that he be re instated. In
his letter he alleged many reasons why he
should not be adjudged guilty, and withal
made an apparently reasonable appeal in
his own behalf. The secretary of war had
the letter referred te Superintendent
Merritt, and his report has been received
at the war department. It says: "To be
lieve for a moment that the new oadet, A.
Cuff, states other than the truth is simply
impossible. There is now no question in
my mind but that there was a deliberate
plan formed and entered into to throw the
sent into the ditch of Fort Clinton, and
to do him violence and bodily injury, and
that ex-Cadet Harligan was the prime
mover in the matter. The proof againet
him is positive and convincing. Beside?,
on ample time being given him to make
deni i! ■■i to the matter, he refused to e^- :
plain the charge." In conclusion General
Merritt recites the questions asked Harti
gan, which he refused to answer, an! says
he knows cf no reason why the request of
Hartigan to be reinstated should be grant
The treasury department has
stored in one of its rooms
several millions of dollars in
confederate state scrip and bonds and
three clerks are employed to watch it.
The greater proportion of this amount
was transferred from the war department
not many days ago. Besides the above,
there is a mass of quaint old confederate
documents in the same room, which relate
principally to the finances of the lost
cause. The gnardian of the relics was
askud yesterday why the government pre
served them, and what would be their ulti
mate fate ? He replied, it was intended at
first to preserve them as curiosities, but
latterly the department determined to
macerate the ui«ks and convert it into
pulp, to be in turn made into official
paper. This will be done in a few weeks
by the government macerator in the base
ment of the treasury building.

Chicago, Acg s.— Fay You is a » dapper
looking Chinaman of artistic attainments,
Mr. You is the gentleman who paints all
the red signs which decorate the basement
laundries denoting that there the finest
washing is done . He is a monopolist, as
all the celestial painting trade in this city
is controlled by him. He considers him
self a good linguist also, and distinguished
himself not long ago by his persistence in
forcing his interpreting abilities
before the court during the
trial of the recent Chinese murder
case. Yesterday Mr. You applied to the
clerk of the circuit court for his second
naturalization papers. His first papers
were taken out in Winnebago county and
dated July 16, 1883. The clerk refused to
issue the second papers, telling the pig
tailed candidate for oitizenship that he
would have to wait a while. You persisted,
and with all the ingenuity of his race en
deavored to convince the clerk that he had
owned the papers for two years, and
through the thoughtlessness or" incompe
tency of a Winnebago clerk an error had
been made in the date. He left the office
intensely disgusted and surprised that the
country was not more anxious to enroll
him among its citizens.
Considerable Uneasiuess, bat no Cause for
General Alarm— The Debts Principally in
the Banks and Widely Distributed
Aiuon; Them.
Boston, Aug. 5. — The suspension late on
Saturday of the leather house of Horsey,
Whittier & Wyman, causes considerable
uneasiness. A careful analysis of the situ
ation, however, shows no cause for general
alarm. Possibly the firm will pay all lia
bilities in full, and that Lewis N. Nute, of
Natick, special partner to the amonnt of
$100,000, will be able to save a portion of
his capital. With the exception of Her
sey, Whittier & Wyman, the other real fail
ure has been that of F. Shaw & Bros. The
other concerns are doing a solvent and
profitable business, but their statements
will probably show that they can pay but
about twenty cent 3on a dollar. In each
case their liabilities are on notes on which
F. Shaw & Bros, appear. The liabilities
of F. Shaw & Bros, are chiefly on
two name papers, about $3,000,000.
The liabilities of C. H. Cope! and
& Co., C. H. Ward. S. C. and J. G. Phin
ney, Macomber and Greenwood, and C. W.
Clement are about §3,000,000, but it would
be entirely erroneous to say that the total
liabilities of the failed firms are $6,000,
--000, for the debts of these last are simply
joint liabilities for the main portion of
Shaw Bros.' debts. The banks are the
principal creditors of all the suspended
firms, but the paper is so widely distribut
ed that no institution is at all shaken. In
the Boston banks holding the largest
amount of this paper, if it should prove a
total loss, the profit and loss account of
the institution will wipe it all out, without
having recourse to the surplus fund, to
say nothing of the capital. The failure of
Hersey, Whittier & Wyman is not expected
to bring about any fresh disaster.
The Sabbath Spent at Green River, Wyom
ing:— I'fce Preparations lor the Overland
Gbbbb Rivec, Wyoming, An;*. 5. — On
the arrival of the presidential train at
Cheyenne at 9 o'clock last night, a large
number of people were at the station, and
during the short time it stopped there the

Union Pacific road, and where has recently
been finished a monument to Oakes Ames,
one of the original projectors of the. road.
The train arrived at Green River, Wyom
ing, at 10:30 to-day (Sunday), and in con
sequence of a pre-arranged plan to spend
the Sunday at this point, have remained
quietly on the train all day.
To-morrow morning at 7 o'clock they
will take spring wagons for Wasbakie and
will encamp to-morrow night on the Sweet
Water 101 miles north of this point. The
next day they will drive into Fort Wash'skie,
fifty-five miles. There are three of ' these
spring wagons. The president, Seoretary
Lincoln and General Sheridan will ride in
number one, Senator Vest, Judge Rollins
and General Stager in number two, Gov
ernor Crosby, Mr. George Vest, Surgeon
Forwood and your representative in num
ber three. They expect to make about ten
miles an hour ever a fine natural road and
to reach Washakie about 3p.m. on Au

As there is no telegraph station this side
of Washakie, you will not hear again from
me till after reaching thtt point.

How His Administration is Regarded in
The Chicago News got up a little boom
for President Arthur the other day. It
sent a circular out to all senators and
members of congress, to all delegates to
the Chicago convention which nominated
Garfield and Arthur, and other prominent
citizens, and published such responses as
it received on the day the president was in
Chicago. Here are the Minnesota replies :
■" Dear Sir: I think the wise, conservative,
and dignified administration of President
Arthur has fully '• met the expectation of
his friend?, and commands the respect and
admiration of his enemies. Adherence to
this same conservative, yet independent
policy, will undoubtedly unite both wings
of the Republican party and bring them
to the front stronger and more united than
ever. . " v » D. N. Sabot.
Stillwater, Minn., Aug. 1, 1883. v
Dear Sir: President Arthur's adminis
tration has proved to be j much better than
we anticipated. While he is not the style
of a man we would have chosen, we have
no disposition to find fault with him. In
short, we are agreeably disappointed in
him, and should he • continue thus to the
end, his administration must certainly be
classed among the best in the history of
the country. We think it might be im
proved a little by modernizing the attorney
general's department. D. C. John.
Hamline, Minn., Aug. 1, 1883.
Dear Sir: The public sentiment of the
country, which at first regarded President
Arthur's administration with a degree of
suspicion amounting almost to repugnance
and in most oases only admitted it merits
after a prolonged process of mental siege,
appears at length to be awakening to a
calm consciousness that there is something
decidedly good in the man after all. The
quiet conservatism with which he has en
couraged timely reforms in civil adminis
tration, the firmness with which he has
maintained his own views on important
public questions in the face of a hostile
majority in congress, the freedom from
corruption and scandal which has marked
the public service since his advent to pow
er, and the even temper, good judgment,
and dignified and impartial bearing whioh
he has constantly manifested in dealing
with the disturbing faotionists of his own
party — these are ' among the acts and cir
cumstances of his administration which,
under most pecularly adverse conditions,
have gradually won for President Arthur
the confidence of the" country, and which,
supposing a like course to be pursued
hereafter, will insure for him an enviable
as well as honorable place in our political
history- . D. Sinct.aib.
Winona, Minn,, Aug. 1, 1883. -
Dear Sir : My father, Mr. E. F. Drake,
is at present in Europe, but knowing his
views, I would say for him that, although
not one of Mr. Arthur's warmest support
ers at the time of the nomination, he has
since been more than pleased with the
able and discreet manner in which he has
conducted public affairs during thy past
two years, showing: himself worthy of the
people's confidence as? chief magistrate of
the nation. • i A. M. Dbaee. .

Dear sir: I consider President Arthur's
administration eminently wise and states
manlike. . M. White.
Chatneld, Minn., Aug. 1, 1883.
Dear air: The course of our distin
guished chief magistrate has from the be
ginning been characterized in an eminent
degree by wise and conciliatory measures,
and by a straightforward, clear-sighted
policy that fully illustrates the truth that
"He serves his party best who best serves
his country." J. B. Wakefield.
Blue Earth City, Minn. Aug. 1, 1883.
Dear Sir: The administration of Presi
dent Arthur has, in view of all the circum
stances surrounding its commencement,
been a great success and highly satisfac
tory to all well-disposed people. There
has| been nothing sensational or merely
brilliant in it, but it has been decorous,
solid and conservative. In these "piping
times of peace" demagogues alone delight
in the mere sensational. Mr. Arthur has
not only made a good executive, but a moit
excellent party chief. He has, to a very
large extent, been instrumental in allaying
the ' bitterness and strife between the so
called half-breeds and stalwarts.

his son, Forest Langworthy, for an assault
with a "deadly weapon," resulted in bind
ing over to Judge J. T. Farmer's court of
the youny man. The old man was let off.
Victoria, B. C, August s.— The steamer
Eureka arrived this morning from the
north, brings news of a horrible tragedy
at Dakaw, near Harri9burg, Alaska. Two
whisky sellers, Rennie and Martin, got
drunk and unceremonously - exchanged
cabins. During the night Indians broke
into Martin's ■: cabin, where < ; Rennie ? was
sleeping, and stole a bottle of whisky. " As
soon as the' fact ; was discovered, both of
them started after the Indians, and in the
fight | which . came, Rennie j was • killed.
The citizens . in force, , arrested
three .-. ; Indians, . - > confining : • them
in the guard house . - During the absence
of the guard the Indians procured a pis
tol, shooting the guard on his return, then
fled. The firing awoke Maj. Givens,
formerly of the United States army, he
rushed to the rescue and was shot down.
The wounded Indians took an ax and
hacked his head to pieces. The three In
dians then attempted to make good their
escape, but a number of miners who had
reached the scene, shot one of them down,
arrested the second, and the third escaped.
The infuriated citizens constituted them
selves a jury, hung the captured Indian.
Next day Colonel Bany ordered the chiefs
to produce the third one who had escaped,
who was quickly delivered up and prompt
ly hanged.
St . Louis, Sept. 5. — Dick Lindsay, his
son Thomas Lindsay, Ellis Rhodes, Mace
Jones and Wm. West, members of a gang
of railroad car thieves, were arrested at
Brooklyn, 111., opposite this city, between
1 and 3 o'elook this morning, by Detective
Furlong and six of his men belonging to
the seoret service of the Mis
souri Pacific Railroad company.
These men are all negroes
and belonged to the same gang, several
members of which were arrested some
weeks ago, and are now in jail at Belleville,
111. Fourteen of the gang have so far
beeD arrested, and the prospect is that all
the remainder, seven in number, will be
captured in a few days, when the most
effective band of railroad thieves ever or
ganized will be completely broken np.
Mace Jones is the man who killed Town
Marshal Green in Brooklyn last week, and
Lindsay and Rhodes shot and very seri
ously wounded a car watchman named
McLean, three weeks ago,
St. Louis, Aug. 5. — Another fatal shoot
ing by a policeman occurred h*re last
night. While Officer Godfrey was walkiDg
his beat in the neighborhood of Washing
ton and Twenty-third street?, he observed
three men acting suspiciously, and when
he attempted to arrest them they broke
and ran off. The officer gave chase, and to
intimidate, as he claim?, fired three shots
after them, one of which entered the bacs
of Wm. Snyder and passed through his
body, and he was taken to the hospital and
died to-day. This is the second person
killed by a policeman within a week. Thft
man killed i? known to tho police us a hard

to a gang of sneak thieves.
Wheeling, W. Va . , Aug. 5. — There is
great excitement at isisterville, Tylor coun
ty, on the Ohio river railroad. Ne^-oes

ing. The negroes put in a blast, notified
of danger and ran to a.safe distance. The
Italians were only a short distance and
two Italians were killed. The Italians
pursued the negroes with revolvers, picks
and dirks. The negroes drew razors, and
further trouble is feared.
Disobeying the Sunday Law,
St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 5. — The police
have not yet completed their report of
the violations of the Sunday law to-day,
but it is generally believed that more beer
saloons were kept open than last Sunday
and that there was a more general dis
position on the part of the beer and wine
soloonl keepers to resist the law than there
was a week ago. A very few if any of the
liquor saloons were open and there was a
closer observance of the, law by the small
shop keeps than last Sunday. AH the new
violations will be reported to the prosecut
ing attorney, but there will be no second
charges mafle until some of tke cases now
before the court of criminal corrections
have been decided. Nearly 1,000 war
rants have been sworn out thus far, two
thirds of them being against siloon keep

Weather Report for July, ISB3.
Signal Office, )
St. Paul, Minn., Aug. 4, 1883. )
The meteorio features of July JJwere re
markable as to, temperature and in one in
stance phenomenal; of the three other
elements, viz: weather, wind aud pressure,
the first named differed considerably from
the average for the last twelve years, while
the two latter named are about up to the
average. The hot wave that generated
over the Rocky Mountain region at the
close of last Jane, is the phenomenal fea
ture referred to above, and the resulting
maximum temperature therefrom of 100
degrees at St. Paul on the Ist is unparal
leled and tends to make the first day in
July,lßß3,m emorable in St. Paul's meteor
The lowest temperature observed during
the month was 52 degrees, making a
monthly range of 48 degrees, which is also
the greatest range shown by our records.
While the month in question shows the
highest temperature on record for this sta
tion, on the other hand taken in the aggre
gate, with but one exception, { it was the
coldest month on record. Its mean tem
perature 70 degrees is 1.9 degrees below
the average July temperature for the
last twelve years and is below every July
mean from 1871 to 1881 both inclusive; so
of twelve conseoutivd years we only stand
ahead of last year's July mean.
The total rainfall, 4.33 inches, is consid
erable for July, and it is 1.17 inches above
the average of the last twelve years' July
rainf, which is 3.06 inches.
QThe total movement of wind, 5,206 miles,
is fully up to the average for the periods
mentioned heretofore. Four gales are re
corded with directions, dates and veloci
ties as follows: 2d, NW, 30 miles an hour;
15th, 5,25;19tk,i S 28, 20th, S, 35; 21st,
NE, 40,. Of ninety -three observations of
the wind taken at 5.56 and 1.56 and 9.56 on
daily it was observed blowing from the N
8 times: NE 4, E4,SE 7, S l6, SW 15, W
11, NW 18 and calm 10 times.
Among the j optical and miscellaneous
phenomena observed were faint traces of
auroral light from 10:10 to 11:40 p. m. of
the 29 th and 30th respectively.
