Open from 9 a. m. to 10 p. in. fel4 Excitement Ran High On Tth street last Friday morning. The cry of MAD DOG Startled the lazy pedestrians who were leisnrely saun tering along that usually crowded and busy thorough fare into new life and motion, spreading consternation and terror all alone- the line. PANTS AND PETTICOATS became fearfully mixed in the general rush for a safe retreat 'TWAS NO FALSE ALARM. Along came the shaggy brute Tail down, mouth open, eyes glaring Like a devil, much mischief daring. He struck a "bee line"' tor VICTOR E. ADLER'S TEN PER CENT CLOTHING HOUSE. On entering there he paused tor a moment as if to gather new strength: then went crashing through a nutre pane of plate glass and into the window in which were displayed those beautiiul aio suits, which were being sold by Mr. Adler at <5.87 A SUIT. The sifrht of these made him frantic, and in his blind rage and uncontrollable fury he made desperate efforts to tear them into tatters. The dog had eviddntly been started np Tth street from a point on or near the Avenue. Coming from such a source. And pursuing so diabolical a course. one would naturally inter, from surrounding circum stances, that be was AN EDUCATED DOG. and had been sent on this mission for the sole purpose of destroying or defacing this particular line of goods, which, from the first dav they were advertised, had bred much discontent and been a source of severe un rest to a certain class of clothiers who. being unable to offer anything in the way of fair competition, sought to take a mean revenge through the instrumentality of a seemingly rabid canine. The timely arrival of Officer Kendall was quite a relief to the numerous customer* in Mr. Adler's store. But even the commands of the officer did not cause hiin to desist; but the persuasive eloquence of a formidable "black Jack," wielded by his powerful arm, broUKht the now thoroughly maddened brute to speedy terms, and the place and the people were aoon happily rid of the dangerous and pestiferous cuaa. We are pleased to inform the People, however, that the dog did not manKle, mutilate, destroy or dis figure all those handsome suits. There are more than a hundred of them left, all in perfect shape and first class condition, and will continue to be sold at $5.87 A SUIT. 'till the last suit is diHi>osed of?dogs and their abettors to the contrary notwithstanding. Your attention Is called particularly to an iuimen.se line of Fine Ready Made Clothing recently purchased by Mr. Adler at a great sacrifice, and which he is retailing at 4U per cent less than any manufacturer can produce them For Bona Fide Bargains go to VICTOR E ADLEBT3 TEN IFF CENT CLOTHING HOUSE, TEN 927 and 929 7th 8t N.

REPORT OP THE BOARD OP ENGINEER OFFICERS. The report of the board of engineer officers consisting of coL J. M. Wilson, Lieut. Col. P. c. Ualns and Major J. q. Lydecker, appointed to consider the subject of the construction of a bridge across Eastern Branch, at the toot of Pennsylvania avenue, was laid before the secre tary of War this morning. Tne report says that the "act under which the work Is to be done directs the Secretary of War to cause the construction of a wooden, iron or masonry bridge, with necessary approaches, at a cost not to exceed $110,000, after making a survey to determine and height of said bridge. The ? ^ Proposed bridge recommended by Halna. In his report to the Chief of En 1?J7?13 approved by the board, i he axis of the bridge so located will make an an gle of about 6 degrees to the southward, with the H?n ?L%e~i?syl7anla avenue extended. The bridge 'onS between high water lines, with approaches about 530 feet long, making the total length of bridge and approaches about 2,235 IGCt. j The board also concurs with Col. Halns In the opinion that the width of the bridge should not be less than thirty-two feet. The height of the bridge recommended by the officer In charge of the work places the roadw&y at an elevation of thlrty-flve feet above mean low tide. In order to make suffi cient head-room for an over-grade crossing of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad. The board ap proves of this height for tlie further reason that the necessary height of piers and truss would Place the roadway oi a deck bridge at substantially that elevat ion. The board has no detailed plan of bridge before It for consideration, nor does It understand that it can nx upon any particular plan, Inasmuch as the ^equIr^3v.tliat after determining the length, width, and height of the proposed bridge, the secretary of \\ ar shall thereupon advertise for P Prtces for Its construction. The board is or the opinion, based on estimates submitted In *; ns report, that advertisement for con struction of a bridge (located on the proposed line), in which the material of the frame and Its sup ports shall be iron and stone, the clear width of structure not less than 32 feet, and height of road I a*)0ve, l?w water, 35 feet, will bring out bids for the work within tne limits of the appropila dn accordance with the foregoing views, the board has the honor to recommend that advertise ment for plans and prices of a bridge that shall conform to the general requirements Indicated above be now prepared and published, as required by the act approved February 23,1887. State of the National Finances. THE SURPLUS LIKELY TO BE LESS ON THE 1ST OF SEP TEMlfEK THAN ON THE 1ST OF JULY. The following statement In regard to the na tional finances Is authorized by the Treasury De partment: "The estimated receipts and expenditures of the Government in the months of July and August show that there will be a decrease rather than an increase of the Treasury surplus during that time. After providing for the $19,716,000 ot the 3 per cent bonds, due July l, the surplus will be about $3000,000. The pension appropriation of $<6,075,000 for the flsc.il yearendlng June 30,1887. Is already exhausted, consequently the Pension Bureau reports that when the new appropriation becomes available on July 1 It will draw $12,000,000 for the payment of pensions. This will leave in the Treasury a surplus of $25,000,000. The gov ernment assets In national bank depositaries, on July l, will about equal that sum, so that sub stantially the whole Government balance will thus be available for the current business of the country on July l, and will probably continue thus available for some months, for the amount of the Government deposits in national banks con stantly Increase, and in August another $1*.,000,000 win be drawn for pensions. Ac cruing Interest and ordinary expenses will require $27,000,000 in July and August, and the receipts for those months will be about $65, 000,000, leaving on September 1 a surplus, less than on July 1 of say $36,000,000. Other consid erations should be noted as affecting the Influence of the treasury upon the finances of the country. One is that of the above estimated receipts more than $1,(XX),000 will come, not rrorn taxation, but from the profit on the coinage of the sliver dollar Another Is that during July and August the Govl ernment will expend at least $4,000,000 In the purchase of silver bullion, which sum Is not in cluded In the above estimated expenditures. An oCher Is that $7,000,000 of the surplus is got by catling cash that amountof trade dollars redeemed and melted into bars. Last year the Treasury surplus in July and August ranged from $75,000, oooto^ooo.ooo, as against from $18,000,odd to $29,000,000 this year, when a comparison is made I upon the same basis, while the deposits in natlona banks depositaries are much larger. During the fiscal yearendlng June 30,1887, the circulating medium of the country will have increased through Treasury operations and otherwise about $70 - 000,000, of which $55,000,000 is in notes and coins ot $20 and under."

The only contrac tor. Mr. Rhodes, has been dead over fifteen years, and has never had a successor, for although Mr. Samuel H.

Friel, Indicted for assault and battery, with Intent to kill Officers Ellis and Harrover, on the 23d of April last?the arguments having been concluded yesterday?Judge Montgomery charged the Jury. After briefly stating the claims of the Government and the defense, the shooting not being denied, he called att ention to the claim of the defendant that he had no Intent to kllL The law is that voluntary intoxication is no excuse for crime, but the jury was to decide whether from any cause the defendant was capable of forming an intent. Whether the graver offense has been committed depended upon their Judgment; if sat isfied that It was his purpose to take life, that he had the will power to form the intent, he was guilty of the graver offense, and if they believed that he did not have the will power he should be convicted of the assault. He advised them that it was their province to inquire whether the mental faculties were such at the time as to render him Incapable of forming the intent to kill. If his mental faculties were such that he did not know what he was doing, or if he knew what he was doing, and did not know why he was doing It, he should be found guilty of the lesser offense, and If he was conscious or what he was doing and why he was doing It, the Intent may be Inferred. There was no dispute but he was guilty of some offense. The Jury, after a half hour's absence, returned a verdict of guilty of assault in each count. Sen tence was deferred. The Last of a Noted Pickpocket. FRANK CURRAN DIES AT PROVIDENCE HOSPITAL. Frank, alias "Cockey," Curran, one of the most noted pickpockets in the country, died at Provi dence Hospital yesterday of consumption. Al though only twenty-seven years of age, curran had gained the reputation of being the most ex pert man living at his infamous calling. In this city, about four years ago, a man was walking along 9th street one afternoon when Curran came along and relieved him of his pocket-book, con taining a large amount of money. A cltlzeli saw the act, and, Currtin observing this, slipped the pocket-book Into a colored man's pocket, and had it not been that he was seen to do so by another citizen the negro would probably have paid the penalty for stealing, curran was taken to court, and when the case was called the negro failed to appear, and It was stated that friends of curran had sent him out of the city. Curran was con victed and given three months in J all. After serving the three months' sentence he went West and was captured In Cincinnati for doing one of his professional tricks. He was given three years there, and, after being released, he returned here about a month or two ago and was sent to the hospital, where he died yesterday of consumption. This morning his body was turned over to Zur horst Bros., undertakers, and hLs remains were interred in Mount Olivet Cemetery. He was ad mitted to the hospital under the name of Frank Jones, but the burial certificate was made out in his correct name. Deceased Is a brother to "Johnny" Curran, who was alleged to be an acces sory to the murder of Policeman Arnold in Alex andria. His photogrrph is In the rogues' gallery In this cltv.

London, June 22.?There Is nothing In t he papers or on the people's Hps but the Jubilee, therefore a few calmer reflections, now that the enthusiasm has somewhat evaporated, will be In order. To begin with, the festival was strictly one of the middle class, the railroads all taking out of London no fewer people than on ordi nary holidays. The crowds were astouUhlngly smaller than had been anticipated. Indeed, ex cept in a half dozen central spots,where the crush was terrible for some time, and police and soldiers were at their wits'end in the struggle with the people. It was possible to make one's way from point to point along the whole route. I had not once to use my police pass In order to gvt about. ah the columns of accounts this morning about the continuous thunder of applause ark purely imaginary. From a collation of accounts by people stationed at different points the fact is clear that applause was very infrequent and not very loud. The first half of the procession passed the end of Northum berland avenue, where I first saw it, without a single cheer. As a spectacle the procession suf fered greatly from the fact that there was no music in It, and half the carriages were clos.-tL one real point of luterest in the pageant was formed by the splendidly picturesque group of native and Indian cavalry officers preceding t be oueen's carriage and the band of princes on horse back behind it. in the Abbey a much more striking feature of the ceremony was the kiss exchanged by the queen with all the members of her lamily, and the most touching Incident was the double kls>lng of the crown princess of Germany, nereides! daughter. After a long and affectionate kiss iruui h<-r mother she kissed the queen's hand with such fervor that the queen again kissed her warmly, after which the crown princess, for the third time, kissed her mother's hand aDd rctlrvd. It was tin? mother and daughter, not the que< n and crown princess who embraced, The procession was then reformed, and the Abbe/ rapidly emptied quietly, A POSSE OF KINGS BEING LEFT UNNOTICED as the spectators hurried out to catch a glimpse of the royal procession. Great amusement is ex pressed this morning over the mishap of the Marquis of Lome, who was lgnomlnlously thrown as he was riding with the princes, Ju?t outside Buckingham Palace. Unless one mistakes them very much, several of these princes by divine right would chuckle over this seemingly providential removal of their companion by marriage. There were two or three fatal accidents and a number of sUghter ones, but the ambulance serv ice was one of the most picturesque and enter talng features of the day to the people sitting out their long and expensive vlglL Every few min utes there would be a rusn, aud an ambulance would be fetched aud somebody carried off uihju a stretcher. Immense amusement was caused by the rapid recovery of ladles who had fainted as soon as the stretchers were deposited in front of them. BY ONE UGLY RUSH on the Thames embankment half a dozen women were seriously hurt. After being rescued with difficulty they were laid upon the hard sand out side the St. Stephen's Club, one of the lead ing conservative clubs, just outside of the house of commons.

The Post says concerning yester day's demonstration: "congratulation is due both to the queen and to the people. No sovereign ever received more sincere testimonials of respect and affection. Never has a people testified Its loy alty In a more admirable fashion." The Xeus says: "The pageant was worthy of the country and of the occasion. Flattery" could not say more and the truth does not allow the soberest chronicler to say less. The queen's welcome was perhaps the heartiest, as it certainly was the most magnidcent, she ever received." The Times says: "Amidst a tumult of rejoicing unequaled In the memory of this and m my past generations the Jubilee culminated In a p.isslou of festivity and thanksgiving, only they who have lived in and through it can realize Its wondrous thrill and glow at Westminster abbey, as was solemnized the thanksgiving, and caviling is dumb with admiring delight." The Standard says: "The august ceremony passed off with splendid success, amidst such demonstrations of a nation's love as these Islands have rarely seen. Nothing occurred to mar the noble and imposing character of the whole scene. Never within the memory of the present genera tion has England witnessed anything half so splendid." . The Telegraph says: "The Jubilee has come and gone in a blaze of pleasure, success and happy national emotion. The good Victoria, the center and climax of the spectacle, was greeted with such cheers of love, reverence, and benediction as no crowned head ever before received." All the morning papers have columns of tele grams from America and the continent reporting jubilee rejoicings. ^ Raii.ni June 22.?The crown prince last night telegraphed to Emperor William a long dispatch announcing the success of the jubilee festivities.

Every Englishman reverts with pride to the history of the development of the last lifty years. All civilized nations, and especially Ger many, give loud expressions to their sympathy with the queen. The hlgn importance attached by the emperor to his being worthily represented at the celebration is shown by his having sent the crown prince and Prince William. The German people, mindful of their relationship to the British and of the glorious deeds effected by the two na tions in common, and remembering also the efforts of both peoples for the advancement of education .mi civilization, join with the greatest sincerity in celebrating the jubilee, and re-echo train their hearts the wish of the British people that the queen may long be spared and continue to reign lor the happiness ana welfare of her subjects."

There was no collateral, no security whatever. Mr Baldwin and Mr. Hopkins were unable to tusks any explanation and Mr. Harper could offer none. Even alter this, It Is said, the offer to permit the bank to continue was niaoe If these Uuvo men were expelled and new capital brought in. But when the Inquiry w as made as to how much would be required, the answer a f1,000,000 at least. That staggered the directors, and although tnejr still hoped to form a reorganization it is most probable that the fear that a furt her examination would reveal a further deficit deterred them. The tact is. that Harper concealed from the directors his oonuec t ion With tile w heat deal.
