amount ot red tape for the expense ol which
provision has not yet been made
In the judgment of the ablest financial men
In this cltj the Administration will eventually
nave to come to the deposit of a part of the
Government collections In national banks and
thor maintain that Congress should take up at
onto the subject of modifying the relation be
ten the Treasury and the national banks A
very strong argument is made In favor of the
distribution ot Internal revenue receipts
among the national banks of the principal r
urte cities I different sections of the country
Bimily New York Boston Philadelphia Chi
cago and New Orleans The deposits should
b apportioned among the banks according to
their capital and surplus combined In that
ay there would be no possibility of favorite
Urn and each bank would obtain deposits In
proportion to the security which it could offer
I tu own resources and also in proportion to
its business
The law under which such deposits ore now
made namely section 6153 of the Itemised
Elutes provides that Tbe Secretary of
t shall require association thus
designated to ale satisfactory security by the
dlDOslt of United Elates bonds and otherwise
for tie safekeeping and prompt payment tho

I eminent nnull have only such protection as
ether depositors enjoy namely the capital and

ot its stockholders to the extent of the
amount ot their stock theruln at the par value
Unroof In addition to tbo amount inxested In
loch nusroa Aa the national banks are
the creations of the Government and their op
erations ar restricted and supertlsed by op
sad their condition constantly subject to Fed

pits In the mauner outlined above The
I bnelnfss of the country Hue always had to
Itrucale agatuEt the SubTreasury system and
It will unquestionably labor under that dls
advantage until the SubTreasury system Is
abolished or at least modified radically
The present trouble dates from last Novem
her when tbo subject of contracting the Gov
ernment deposits in national banks was first
trt
agitated The financial situation has been
S truwlne Wore ever since A few people in
J F Val Street kuow that the Administration was

tho tightness in the money market and that
markOt
fort WIndom has been called upon to re
lievo I The finances the country can never
be in a healthy condition when it Is required
that the Secretary of the Treasury shall b
asked to step In and relieve stringency which
periodically occurs No one man should have
I In bis power to make money either cheap or
dear The Government Is collecting more
money than I spends su that according to the
last Treasury statement there Is now locked
lockd
up in tbelrarlous BubTreasuries of tho coun
try 1107000000 over and above the liabilities
of tho Government Lo Uablie
The total amount held In the various Sub
Treasuries is something over 700000000 Bub
tbe Government holds as security for this vast
sum of money the bonds ot tho respec I I
tive BubTreasurers signed by their fends I
for about onefortieth of this amount Now
if the BubTreasuries could be wholly
b boly
abolished and money deposited in the
national banks with adequate security
taken for the whole amount Instead ot
onefortieth which Is l given by those who now
hold this money Mr WIndom would not b
required too into Wall street to regulate the
finances Th money would b safer than It
now t and a half million of money per annum
would be saved by lh abolition ot this system
here never was any good reason for the es
tablishment of the lubTreaul system and
It ought to be forthwith repealed

Tho scheme t connect Staten Island and

at the narrowest point of the channel la begin
ning to take definite shape A bill to authorize
the construction of such a tunnel was intro
duced in Congress yesterday by Bepresenta
tlvo Covert of New York and It referred
tvo Cvrt was rfered to
the Committee on Commerce Tho concern
seeking the franchise from Congress is tho
New Jersey and Staten Island Junction Rail
road Company a corporation of which Erastus
Wlman Is President
The plans of the projectors are now given
In
out for the first tmo The Immediate point in
view 1 to give the trunk lines now centering
on the Jersey sbore a Brooklyn terminus The
ultimate plans It Is 1 said have com connec
tion with Austin Corblns scheme for a gieat
landing place ol ocean steamships at Montauk
Lone leland but nothing Is Bad about that end
of the enterprise by tbe projectors ta
Mr VlmnnH company was incorporated
three years ago and be says that the physical
features of the enterprise nave been thorough
If intesticated and that there Is no doubt
about the feasibility of the scheme The route
as It bun beu laid out I from the Arthur Kill
brldco Across the contra of btaten Island be
1crosa
hind the hills and I comes out at Stapleton
ou the vast shore The route is about six
miles lona It has been surveyed and a part
of tbe right ot way has already been purchased
The point whore it is I Intended to begin tun
I nell la I about I mile back of btaptoton and
I I declared that the descent to the lowest
point under the bay can be made very gradual
The water Is only iblrtyflve feet deep at the
deepest spot so that the tunnel need not b
greatiy deprasned lbs material nearly all the
way Is believed to be a hard soapstone which
Is easily worked but very strong and will
not require much artificial support Tbe
point of ogress on the SlP por Island
side is designed to be a short dis
tance south Ol Bay Ridge whence the route
contemplated is From the mouth of the tun
nel across Gowanus Bay and along Columbia
street to Atlantic avenue Crossing over At
lantic avenue through a block to Furman
street and along tbat street t the Fulton
Ferry boas where nearly all of the elevated
and surface railroads terminate From Fulton
street is proposed to run along Water street
aroett
in northeasterly direction to the mouth of
Wallabout Bay and after crossing It follow
First and Franklin streets to uswtowa Creek
From this point the road is designed to run
along the waterfront until It meets the pro rn
jected East Illvor tunnel
Mr Wima said yesterday that the cost of
the tunnel proper about two and onehalf
miles long would be about 1250000 per mie
and that the total cost of construction would
be about a 00 acoring to the estimates
of Hmln ark lie amrms that the necel
sari capital wiLl b forthcoming and that the
work will be completed three years after I Is
begun Mr linen Is I very sanguine abut the
enterprise He estimates that the saving to
cos of coil wnloh Brooklyn burns would m It
self par the interest on the cost of construc
tion He says
Over two million tons a annually con
sumed In these cites and fifty cents on half of
this amount could be saved by the 9conomv
possible from avoiding Its delivery by water
and hoisting It out of canal boats No soeclu
connection Is contemplated with any one road
The Idea Is slmoly t afford trackage for the
eight or nine trunk lines which In New Jersey
converge near th Arthur Kill bridge on their
approach to New York Of course If this
scheme could be still further extended so a thl
include a bridge across tie Met Itlver I per
fect connection could thus be afforded with

LoDisvnxT Sept 10Dr J O Green of
New York city arrlvea her last night from
Montana Dr Green Is I the man who found
the dead body of Robert Ray Hamilton In the
Bnake liver lie gives the details as follows
l Hamilton had a ranch at the lower end
of Jackson Lake near Yellowstone rak This
he called his southern ranch Be bad another
across the mountains called his northern
ranch whoro ho had a lot of men at work
building a hotel for the accommodation
of travellers On the 23d of August he started
ou horseback from the southern ranch to the
northern ranch He left a note for his part
ner Mr Sargent with whom he lived tolling
of his journey He did not reach the northern
ranch and Bargent becoming alarmed got
out search parties and the neighbors were
soon looking In all directions for some trace of
Mr Hamilton
I was on a hunting expedition and was
encamped with a party on the banks of the
finale flyer In a very wild and romantic part
of the Rocky Mountains and while we were
there one of the parties looking for Mr Hamil
ton arrived They Bad that they had found
Mr Hamiltons horse and dons Tho horse
still had the saddle on to which wan strapped
tho of antelope which It
hindquarter an nntelop was
evident Hamilton had shot but a short while
before his death Wo commented on tho In
dications shown by the condition of the ani
mals and agreed that It wa probable that Mr
Hamilton had been drowned In attempting to
ford Bnako River
We parted for the night resolving to mako
a thorough search ot the river next day when
there would bo light enough to see the bottom
us well as the shores Tbo next morning our
own party started out in the search for Mr
Hamilton We got a flatbottomed boat and
part of us qot in I In order to search the mid
dle of the stream Other men went
along either thor At some distance below
tho camp wo found a largo pool of water where
tbe river ha comparatively little current and
at the lower end of this pool wore two largo
pine trees uprooted In the stream I was some
what ahead of the boat and the men on foot
called attention to these trees and suggested
that the body of the unfortunate man might bo
found there The bank of this place was cnt
under by the stream and I was Impossible to
got very close on horseback but the boatmen
soon saw tho body close under the shelving
bank and by the Hid of my tether rope it was
towed clear of the brush and brought near the
shore Hero a large niece of canvas used for
camp bedding was passed under the corpse
and I was then brought to the shore Intact
M Tho body had undoubtedly been in the
water for many days I noticed that the watch
had stopped at 980 oclock We concluded
from this that Mr Hamilton after killing the
antelope had attempted to cross tbe river at
night and had been drowned C had proba
bly observed a rock bar projecting some forty
yards in the river but a short distance above
where wo bad camped and had been
tempted to seek a ford there Hn was
a good swimmer and had probably cast him
self loose from his horse and attempted to
swim ashore We noticed that a number ot
water weeds were twisted around Mr Hamil
watr spurs and we thought that being entan
gled with them might have caused his drown
Imr There were no mark of violence what
ever on his body He had a small amount ot
money In his Dockets a belt nearly full ot
caitrldga around hte waist and ft LOOK of Ilea
for trout fishing in his pocket with his name
ou the case
01 Our party broko cnmp the next day and left
the body In charge of Mr Sargent Ono of the
party had a camera and took views of the
plrr place selected for the grate These views Trill
be forwarded to the Hamilton family

Dun Sin On Saturday Aug 23 while I was
at Kalntuck Post Office Idaho for our mal
and freight tor the ranch your brother Robert
Bay Hamilton was accidentally drowned in
Bpake lliver about six miles below the outlet
of Mary Mere Tbo day before he left tho
ranch alone although Mrs Bargent tried to
persuade him not to gofor the lower and of
the to hunt lake antelope via the tiueridan trail on horseback
As you will see by the map enclosed he had
to ford Unake Hirer below the lake He forded
all right going down Friday stayed at the
south camp tbat night and started back Sat
urday night with an antelope head skin and
hams tied on his saddle and went into tbe
river after dark half a mile above the ford In
about atr worst place he could have struck I
seems that his spurs tangled up In the cross in
the bottom of the river It really was tao only
place tn the river where there is dead water
I returned to the ranch on Wednesday night
Aua 21 at 9 oclock ra bargent said Ham
ilton has not returned from his hunt and be
lon he would perhaps be gone two or three
lone
days when he left the Friday night before As
I had found a note at out Landing from Ray
saying he had gone to tbe ranch on Saturday
I immediately lent an official messenger to
turn out the best mountaineers In the lower
valley t search for him On Monday Sept I
we found his horse with the saddle ana the
antelope antlers and hams tied on It The
horses back was ruined by the saddle turning
and be weight hanging so long by the cinches
On Tuesday morning at 98 0 cock we found
his body hits watch had stopped at 930
oclock Saturday night Aue 8
He was brought here I the boat today
and buried close to our pouse on a spot over
El klbg Mary Mere and the Teton Mountain
lie once told i me that he would rather be burled
here should anything happen I know he was
going to change his residence and make this
ald mlk Ihl
Iolnl t cale
his home He told Mr Sargent that he meant
to shin out his library and other things and
live here permanently Although w 0 have
known him but a short time wo grieve for him
from the bottom of our hearts I have done
everything I could dC and will take every oare
of his things until I hear from you I can

pending since 187 Many of the original liti
gants and their counsel are dead The deci
sions are practically In favor of the Higgins
Company although tbe demand of the plain
tiffs is nominally sustained
The higgins firm had usedawire attachment
to a loom on which body Brussels Wiltons
velvets tapestries and other pile carpets were
woven This work was originally done by
hand Tho lame patent was u o by the
Blgelow Carpet Company and Ibo Itoxburr
Carpet Company of Boston and the three firms
had a monopoly and grow rloh In 1871 the
patent expired and the Higgins Company
adopted a new wire motion upon sixtyone of
its looms This was what the Webster Com
pany declared was an infringement of
wa fnlrnlemcnt
patent Butt was begun In 1874 with
Clarence 1 Seward nnd E N Dicker

and Judge Hoar Senator Farts and borne
GllTord roprojentlnc tho IHcglns Company
In 1878 Judge Wheeler of the Circuit Court de

In January 1888 1200 printed pages of cvi
dence were submitted to Commissioner ShHIda
I took him six months to get through Ihoni

calculated could have been made I the carpet
company bad ued only tbo machines Invented
at the time the suit was brought But tho car

of as groat or greater ability than the Webster
machines bad meantime been invented and
Commissioner Shields hold that this should be

Mr Pants Claim ta the Tmettto of a
New Mexico flront
A transaction Involving the purchase ot the
Noorn grant about 837000 acres of land in
Mew Mexico has resulted in two suits against
Den Benjamin F Butler brought by E K
Darling of 7S8 Madison avenue for the re
covery of over tIOO000 The suits wore begun
In the Supreme Court but upon the applica
tion of Gen Butler Judge Lawrence yesterday
removed them to the United States Circuit
Court
About twenty years ago Mr Darling Stephen
B Elklns Samuel B Smoot of Washington
and T B Catron ot Banta F3 obtained titles
to about onehalf of the grant divided equally
among the tour Mr Darling alleges that In
December 1883 he transferred his share to
Gen liutler at his request the General giving
a declaration of trust that he would hold the
land for sale and In theoventof failure to sell
would return within six months The Gen
eral also agreed that If there was a sale he
would pay Darllngan amount equal to the
price received by Elklnsjor Catron for his
share It Is asserted that Butler in February
1885 agreed to pay Darling tTUOOO for his one
quarter Interest and made payment under
this agreement amounting to tlOOOO Those
payments censed a year ago leaving a bal
ance as Mr Darling anserU of 60000 It is
for this balance that Mr Darling asks in the
Dm action Ho also desires an accounting
In the second suit Mr Darling seeks to re
cover about 143000 Smoot had given Darling
a mortgage on onehalf of his Quarter Interest
and subsequently with Darlings consent
transferred his share to Gen Butler The Gen
eral agreed to sell the land at not lets than
eighty cents an acre Of the proceeds he was
to hold onehalf to satisfy Darlings mortgage
Bmoots share which comprised about 1U8000
acres war finally sold to the Union Land and
Grazing Company but as Darling alleges
Gen Butler never accounted to him for the
proceeds

Eleven sanitary policemen ot the Board of
Health completed yesterday a census ot the
Second ward They found the population to
bo llOfl The Republican census mad the
population 022 The difference Is 274 or 2971
per cent added to the census figures
It the other wards ot the city would yield M
well In a recount the 1513501 which the census
glvotvas the total population ot the city would
bo raised to 1983162 The Second Is i not a
typical ward and no such proportion ol In
crease Is looked for over the whole city but no
doubt remains In the minds of the Health
Commissioners that the city has been greatly
undercounted The Board adopted this reoo
lutlon
llVifrea Rational conclusions based oa
statistics of this department and numerous
wellestablished Instances of omission point
clearly to the fact that the recent census aa
announced Is both Inaccurate and Incomplete t
andWhertat
Whertat A correct census Is neoeBsaiyln
the compilation of the vital statistics of this
city and for the proper computation ot matter
relating to sanitation as well as to business
prosperity therefore
linaliM That his Honor the Mayor be and
Is hereby requested to procure to be made O
complete enumeration ot the Inhabitant ol
this city and that all facts In the possession oi
this department bearing on the spirit ot this
resolution be presented with this preamble and
resolution
Incidentally the Board has rescued the Rae
ona ward from the reproach brought upon its
sanitary condition by Mr Toners census In
1888 tho deaths were 33 or 2062 in a thousand
In 1880 there were 33 deaths or a rate of 9195
in a thousand on the population of 1800 ao
cording to Mr Porters figured Int23deathfi
Ina population 1191 is a rate of only 1090
