WiBniNOTos, Deo. 20. Arrangements have
Teen mado by the Treasury Department to
avoid tho possibility of disturbance in the
monoy market on account of tbo heavy pay
ments for bonds of tho Union Paclflo Itailrood.
Tbr following statement was given out at the
department to-day:
"Tho amount of the principal of these bonds
Is 8211,002,000, and tho intcrosl duo thereon
e?D7,O0O. Up to last night $10,100,120 of thoso
1onds hod been presented for paymont, and
Treasury drafts to the amount of $8,noo,17U
had been issued and sent out from the Treasury.
This lcjiroionts tho actual cash .payments mado
up to date. There wcro up to last night
$2,143,800 proceeds of redeemed bonds held In
tho Treasury to securo olrctilatlon of national
banks. Checks representing tho actual cash
pay moils nlrotuly mado and lo be mado be
tween now and tbo 27th will bo avallablo on
that, duto In tho banks.
"it Is probablo thnt tho amount of cash pay
ments to that will reach $15,000,000. On
iho same day tho Reorganization Committee of
tho Union Paclflo Hallroud Company will pay
Into tho Treasury tho mm of $H,C38,401, and
In order to guard further against any disturb
ance of tho market. Socretsry Gngo has ar
ranged that $4,000,000 of this amount shall
bo ucposltod In tho National City Bank of Now
York upon bonds being turned over to the Gov
ernment for security. Tho balance, $l,03,
401, will represent the actual amount with
drawn from the money market and paid into
the Sub-Treasury at Now York.
"The wbolo amount of bonds falling due on
Jan. 1 will, of course not be presented by tlint
tlmo. There Is usually a certain percentage
which Is slow In coming in, depending mostly
upon the condition of tho money market. If
tho markot Is eaxy, holders of bonds prefer to
let tho money for safety rouialn with tho Gov
ernment, and If the price of bonds Is high,
there is also a tendency to present thorn Blowly
for redemption. Such is the' caso at this tlmo.
Thoro has toon a congestion of curroncy nt tho
money centres, and oxoopt within tho Inst weok
or ten days. Iho monej market has been exceed
ingly easy. Bonds to tho amount of 7,UB0,000
nro now held as security for spoclal deposits In
national banks on account of tho pureh,so of
tho Union Paclflo llailroad, and to this uxtent
there will bo no actual money transaction.
"It will i bo-seen, therefore, that tho meas
ures taken by the Secretary will, so far as tho
redemption of tho bonds Is concerned, and tho
payment to tho Government of tho noxt In
stallment of tho purchase price of the Union
Paclflo nnllrnad Company, prevent any dis
turbance of the money market on these ac
counts. The last payment, to bo mado to tho
Government on the Paolfle Railroad account
will be Jan. 0, 1808, and will amount to
$8,538,401."

provoked, and, coming as they did after the re
centasstult on somn American sailors In Kobe,
the officials of the Navy Department think that
firm steps should be taken to secure prompt re

of Epps to Minister Buck, but for somo roason

gist, sas Ills Calomel Battle (las Nat Bean
Opened-A Second Child Blea Similarly.
Solomon Levin, tho 18 months' old son ot
Ilyman Levin, a crayon artist, ot 0 Chrystla
street, died at 0 o'clock last night Tho circum
stances ot tho death were such ns to lead tha
father nnd the attending physician, Dr. I.
Ixowcnkopf of 240 East Broadway, to report
tho death to the police of tha Eldrldge street
station. Mr. Levin told Pnllco Captain Titus
that he suspected the baby had been poisoned.
Tho child was taken ill on Wednesday after
noon. Supposing that it was some trivial
nllmont, tho mother did not Immediately
call a physician. As the child soemed to
grow worse during the night. Dr. Loewon
kopf was called shortly after 8 o'clock
yeslorday morning. After examining tho
infant, Dr. Loewcnkoof diagnosed tha case aa
ono of Indigestion, no told Mr. and Mrs. Levin
that thero was no cause for alarm, and wrote a
prescription tor tablots containing a sixth of a
grain ot calomel.
Mr. Levin got this prescription filled at tha
drug store ot Bernard Kohosoff at 18 Bayard
street. Tho dose, according to the prescription,
was one tablet every four hours. The tablets tha
druggist gavo Mr. Levin were about an eighth
of an Inch In dlametor, and white In color.
When Mrs. Levin received tho tablets from
her husband, she followed the dootor's direc
tions in administering them. A short tlmo after
the first tablet was given the child sank Into a
heavy sleep. This was the opposite effect
which she expected the tablets to havo, and
Mrs. Levin tried to arouse tho child. Falling to
do this. Dr. Loowcnkopf was again called.
Ho reached the bouso tho second time at
about 11 o'clock. According to his statement,
mado to a Sun reporter last night. Dr. Loewen
kopf noticed that tho pupils ot tho child's eyos
wero contracted, that there was a pecu
liar bluish tint to tho skin, and
that coma had sot In. On discovering
theso symptoms. Dr. Loewenkoff' asked Mrs.
Levin to sen the tablets. Sho handed him tho
box, and, after looking at tho tablets that were
loft in it. Dr. Loewenkopf said:
"I believe the druggist Ims made a fatal mls
tako here. I want jou to take me to tho man
that tilled this prescription nt once."
Mr. Levin directed tbo doctor to the druggist's
storo and tho doctor wont there. Accord
ing to tho doctor's statement he found
that Kohosoff was a Russian, about 45 years
old, who had been in this country only
about four months nnd who could not speak a
word of English. Dr. Loowcnkopf knowsonough
of the dialect which Kohosoff spoaks to ask the
druggist the following question:
" Did you fill a prescription for Mr. Levin at D
Chrystle Btroi.t this morning I"
Tbo druggist replied that he did, and the
doctor askod what tho druggist had given his
customer. According to Dr. Loowenkopf, Kobe-soft
answered that he hod sold Mr. Levin
tablets containing a sixth ot a grain ot calomol.
To this Dr. Loewenkopf ronlied:
" You did no such thing. Instead of selling
the man calomel, you sold him morphine, and
you havo poisoned his child!"
According to tho doctor tho druggist became
excited atonco, nnd insisted that ho bad put up
calomel. Then Dr. Loewenkopf look one or the
tablets that had bocn sold to Levin from the
box, and told the druggist to dlssolvo a portion
of It In water and pour upon tho solution nitrlo
acid.
"That," said Dr. Loewenkopf to the druggist,
according to tho doctor's statement, "is tho
test for morphine. If tho solution turns red
upon the application of nitric acid you may
know that you have sold morphlno Instead of
calomel."
According to tbo doctor. Kohosoff made tho
test, and got tho red reaction. Dr. Loowcn
kopf waltod for no more, but returnod to
the house to do what ho could to
savo tho child's lite. Tho stomach was
pumped out and artificial respiration
kept up until tho child died, without having
ever regained consciousness. After telling this
Story to the reporter Dr. Ijoowonkopf added:
"After the child's death I went ngain to tho
drug stoio and asked to see the bottle of
calomel tablets from which those sold to
Levin were taken. Let ma say right here
that in color and size there Is no pos
sible way to distinguish tbo morphlno and
the calomel tablets. Kohosolt finally took
down the. bottle of calomel tablets, nnd I
saw at onco thnt it had never been opened.
I asked him to let me ser the bottlo which
stood next to it on tho shelf, and the label
showed that that bottlo contained a sixth of a
grain morphine tablets. I called the druggist's
attention to this and reminded him that hn was
guilty of gross carelessness In not havlngiiolated
his poison from his innocuous drugs. Ho said
that after I had left him In the morning no had
tested for morphine in the remainder of tba
tablet I bad loft with him, and admitted that ho
had made tho mistake of selling morphine for
calomel."
When the case was reported at tho Eldrldgo
street station. Cant. Titus detailed Dotective
Cohen to make an investigation. Cohen at mid
night had seen neither tho druggist nor tho doc
tor, but had come to tho concl slnn that the po
lice Could do nothing in tho case until nftor an
autopsy had been made. Ho also suggested tbat
it was moro thnn probab'.o that the child had
died of nntural causes.
Kohosoff, according to iho polico, lives In tho
rear of his store. Thero is a night bell at tbo
front door for theusc of customers who may want
drugs after tho Btoro Is closed. A Sun reporter
rang this bell several times just before midnight,
butwat unnblo to get any response. A man
who lives over the store told tho reporter thnt
Kohosoff bad closed up shortly after 10 o'clock
and hnd gone away.

MORE PAT FOR COrB AND FIREMEN.
Salaries ar O.oso ar Tkasa la Breeklra In.
creased loo.
The' Brooklyn Board of Estimate, which In
cludesMayor Wurstor, Comptroller Palmer, City
Auditor Button, Presldont Stewart ot tha
Board of Aldermen, and County Treasurer Tay
lor, met yesterday' and Increased the pay of
1,700 members ot tho Polico Department and
1)50 members of the Fire Departerant. Months
ago, when tho board was engaged In making up
the budgot for the next fiscal year, the polico
mon and Iho firemen put In a plea to have their
salaries equallxed with those of the members
ot the' reepcctlvo departments In this city. Tho
hoard, whllo admitting the claim was just, in
view of the consolidation of both cities at the
close ot ' the year, decided that it could not
make provision for the increase In considera
tion of tho badly crippled condition of Brook
lyn's trencury. Tho men. however, wore as
sured that If possible their request would bo
favorably considered beforo actual consolida
tion had been accomplished.
Tho Aldermen recently made n formal re
quest on the Hoard of Estimate to reconsider
the mattor. Probably to prevent somo tax
payer from going to tbo oourta for an injunc
tion. Mayor Wurstor and his associates mot lato
yoBtcrday afternoon without any preliminary
notice and in a few moments camo to n voto.
Instead of equalizing tho salarUs with thoso of
tho Now York man, tho board decided to In
croaso thorn as follows, the Increase to com
monco from to-day: Policemen getting $800,
J900, and $1,100 n year to receive nn Increase of
$100. the roundsmen to rccolvo $1,300 Instead
in $1,200, and tho Sergeants S1.B50 Instead of
f 1,750. Tho firemen getting $800. $000, and
1,000 will rccolvo an increase of $100. Tho
engineers' salaries ore Increased from $1,300
to $1,400, thoBO ot tho assistant foremen from
$1,000 to $1,600, and of the foremen from
$2(760 to $2,850.
Tho board voted unanimously to mskn the In
creases, and also instructed thicvheads ot tho re
spective departments to havo supplementary
pay rolls mndo out covoring tho amount of tho
Incrcaso for tho rouainlng eight days of tho
mouth. Tho men havo already received their
December salaries nt tho old rates, and unless
some unexpected hitch occurs to-day they will
each get about $2.20, which represents the in
crease for tbo eight days Intervening beforo
thoy become a part ot the administration of tho
Greater New York. In accordance with the
direction of the Hoard of Estimate, tho money
will bo advanced from tho rovenuo fund.
In New York patrolmen get from $1,000 up
to $1,400, roundsmen get $1,500, Sergeants get
$2,000. Firemen get from $1,000 up to $1,400,
engineers $1,000, and assletant foremen $1,800.
SALOON KEEPER'S BVROLAR ALARM
II Tfont OCT at tho Itlsht Tlmo and Two

A burglar alarm Improvised by Charles Stop
pier, who keeps a saloon nt 07 Avenue C, which
consisted of a wire loading from his rooms above
to an apparently full and fresh glass ot beer be
hind the bar in his saloon, was put to a practical
test yesterday. Burglars havo mado a number
of hauls recently in the block in which tbo saloon
is located. Sloppier, who is of an Inventive na
ture, worried for his belongings and determined
to guard against burglars. He filled a glass
partly with beer, and on the top placed a
Christmas treo preparation which lookod llko
foam. Ho fastened a lino wire to the glass and
connected tho other end with a window leading
from his lint to tho Are escape
Shortly aftor noon yestorday, whllo Stopplor
was serving two customers, the burglar ainrm
brer glnss toppled over with a quick, sudden jerk.
Most of tho contents bit tho two customers In
tho fnco. nnd tho glnss danced all around among
tho othor glnssra behind tho bar, causing break
ngo among tho sen oners.
Stopplcr did not wait to furnish explanations,
but rushed upstairs and round two men in his
bedroom. Thoy wero busily engaged In tying up
n packngo containing Stopplor'a best clothes.
Close on Stoppler's heels were the score of cus
tomers who wore in tho place at the tlmo. Tho
burglars were ovoreome. Detective PetorCnrter
of the Union Market station, who was called
in, arrested them. They gave the names of
William Moore and John Rolicrts. Roberts had
a jimmy In bis possession. The prisoners wero

LEITER AND ARMOUR'S WAR

CniOAOOi Dec 23. A question that Is put
ling wheat traders Is whether Loiter and Ar
mour will popl (heir Interests to corner May
wheat Qeorgo French has piled up at least
4,000,000 bushels ot May wheat, accord
ing to' tincolored reports from tho floor.
Armour's radical change of front In bull
ing May wheat Is common knowledge. It Is
equally well known that Armour has a pile
ot wheat bouaht which Is supposed to come
close to the Letter holding. As If to emphasize
tha pool talk, both Armour's and Letter's men
ar buying wheat to-day. Armour's move
ments are closely veiled, but Letter's engineers
make no secret' of the dealings in May wheat.
Already May wheat is regardod by the publlo
as dangerous to handle To-day wheat ad
vanced ls cents beforo tho noon hour nnd trad
ing was vory heavy.
"May wheat Is a long shot," is the answer
glyon by commission men when spproachod by
customers. Up to .luly thoro will bo no new
crop in this country. European countries ex
port a surplus In Argentina, Australia,
Russia, and Buenos Ayros. But the ag
gregate shipments from thoso countries
are regarded as Insufficient lo satisfy
the shortage, in Europe. Tho winter crop
in this country Is not harvested until July,
and, according to the forecasters on 'Change tho
situation has novor been so favorablo for a cor
ner in May wheat as it will bo this season.
Kverywbero the price of May wheat Is on tho
rise, and tho difference betwoon December nnd
May is being ranldly narrowed.
"I am very bullish on May wheat," said Mr.
French, suiting the action to the sentiment by
sending a messenger on the floor of tho Ex
change hall with an order to buy wheat. "The
foreign demand promises to keep up, nnd tho
price of May will be enhanced, I'm sure."
P. D. Armour's, vlows on May whoat nro well
known to the trado. becnuso the veteran trndor
has nt various limes given publicity to his bull
ish sentiment and prophesied that wheat would
yet bring 81.25. Armourllterally "wcntngolnst
his grain when ho bocamo a short In Decem
ber wheat, and those who know him say ho will
redeem himself in his poslilon toward May
whoat, as ho is a bull In theory ns well as In
action.
Whether Lcltcr and Armour unito tholr mil
lions to corner May wheat or pnrsuo Indepen
dent courses tho effect will bo tho same, for
both aro piling up Moy wheat. Lcltcr has bo
far dono all bis grain business through French,
nnd the latter ban been a frequent visitor at
Armour s La fiallo streot ofllce. And dcsplto
the fact that the Lelter millions wero arrayed
against tho Armour strong box thoro nro friendly
relations between tho prlnclnnls of the two
camps.
The trado will not be surprised to find that
the clique has stolen a march during tho night
nnd that it will safely get out from under tho
big pile ot wheat which has already been de
livered to it. Within four days tho receipts of
wheat in this city havo amounted to 1.020.
000 bushels and during tho sarao poriod not
more than 23.000 bushels of whoat havo
bopn shlppcdout of tho city. Add to this ac
cumulation 6r tho last week nnother 300,000
bushols of wheat recolycd in this city before to
day. In nnother day the bins of this city will
contain 7.000,000 bushels of contract, wheat,
Noarly all this has been paid for by Loiter at
the rate of from 87 to 00 cents a bushel.
It la a matter of simple arithmetic to find out
how much money tho Loiters havo piled up In
this huge pllo of December wheat.
LAVT MILLAIS DEAD.
She Was Divorced rrom John nuaUIn ta Harry

Pptntel Cable Denpateh to The Sen.
London. Dee. 23. Lady Millals, widow of
Sir John Millals, tho eminent painter and Into
President of the Royal Academy, died to-day
from cancer of tho throat, the same dlscaso
which caused the death of her husband.
Lady Millals was born Euphemla Chal
.rners Gray of Bowerswcll, Perthshire, and her
first husband was John Ruskln. She was
married to him In 1852. and It was only a few
years later that ha introduced the artist Mil
lals Into his homo in order to paint a portrait
of Mrs. Ruskln. The romantio story which
followed that meeting has been told in various
ways, nnd ono of them dwelt on tho suffer
ings which wero caused by Mrs. Ruskln's ac
tions. But" more trustworthy accounts havo
made it appear that tho writer was satlsflod
with tho nctlon of his wlfo and was. indeed, an
active participant In the ovonts subsequent to
tho time that sbo and Millals met in his homo.
It has, Indocd, been paid that her Mm hus
band suggested the divorco which made it pos
sible for her to becomo Lady Millals.
At all events, sho was divorced from her hus
band in 1H51, and shortly aftciwnrd married
Millals, who was at that tlmo ono nf tho
bnndsotnes,. men In England. Tho divorco
was obtained without dlltlculty. as certain ct
Istliiif physical conditions mado the marriage
between Mrs. Ruskln and her husband void
from the outset.
After her marriage to Millals. Ruskln con
tinued to bo on friendly terms with both of
them, and It has been said that he wa9 present
at tho wedding. Oucen Victoria, whu was then
n grunt pulton of Mlllnls's as well ns tho friend
of Mr. nnd Mrs. Ruskln, was consulted ns to
tho propriety of tho course which RuBkin hnd
suggosled to his wife, and It was with her ap
proval thnt tbo divorco and marrlngo followed.
Lady Mlllnls was before her marrlngo a girl
of llttio experience, and when nho mot Ruskln
admired his position and talents. In splto of
tlio hindrances to their morrlHge, with which
sho wns mado acquainted, her liro with Ruskln
wns hnupy until tho meollng with Millals, who
was nt that tlmo only 2 1 years old, After
tbulr marrlngo sho figured aa tho model for
somo of the artist's best known pictures. Among
theso were "The Huguenot Lovers." "The Order
of Release" and "Tbo Vulo of Rest." In all of
these the woman depleted wns his wife.
