APPOINTMENT OF RECEIVERS.
Hearing Before Judge Hagner in Case
of C. C. Duncanson.
There was a spirited contest before Jus
tice Hagner this morning over the appoint
ment of receivers to take charge of the
estate and business and papers of Charles
C. Duncanson, bankrupt, pending the ap
pointment of trustees. June 13 Mr. Dun
canson filed his voluntary petition In bank
ruptcy. His schedules showed his assets
to be about $330,000, and his liabilities about
$100,000, and he was adjudged a bankrupt
and the matter referred to E. S. MoCal
mont. referee In bankruptcy. The day fol
lowing Mr. Duncanson, through his attor
neys, filed a petition stating that It was
necessary to appoint a receiver to collect the
rents from his real estate, which amounted
to aibout $500 per month, pending the selec
tion of a trustee, and upon consideration
of this petition the court appointed Thos.
R. Jones, president of the National Safe
Deposit, Savings and Trust Company, as re
At the hearing this morning it developed
that Mr. Jones had declined to qualify as
such receiver and that Mr. Duncanson had
filed another petition alleging that Mr.
Jones had been Induced not to accept the
receivership and asking the court to direct
the United States marshal of the District
to collect the rents and take charge of his
books and papers relating to his business
and.estate. The ltrth instant Mrs. Ea*1
niond P. Green, who recently instituted suit
against the bankrupt. filed a petition alleg
ing that she .wag .an unsecured creditor of
Mr. Duncanson to the extent of about
$0,700, and enumerating other unsecured
creditors and stsklug the ?ourt to appoint a
receiver to take the place of Mr. Jones.
After a full hearing of the matter and
argument by" counsel, the court appointed
the United States marshal to take charge of
any part of t^ie bankrupt's estate in his
possession, together with the books and pa
pers relating to Ills business, and to collect
the rents of the real estate until a meeting
of the -creditors, which will b? held the
27th instant, at It# o'clock. Attorneys Chas.

FAVOBS POST CHECKS.
Postmaster General Urges Establish
ment of Postal Currency.
Postmaster General Payne, to whom were
referred the bills Introduced in the House
by Representative Gardner and In the Sen
ate by Senator McMillan providing for the
establishment of a postal currency by means
of "post checks," yesterday transmitted to
Congress his views on the subject. He re
fers to the appointment of a committee by
the Secretary of the Treasury and himself,
and states 'that this committee was divided
In its opinion as to the advisability of the
adoption of the post check. The Postmas
ter General, in referring to the proposed
post check system, says:
"I think there Is a great need of some
tana oi jyistal currency;, and that provided
for in the bills under consideration is very
simple, easily understood and would prove
of incalculable convenience to the public if
the bills could be enacted into law. 1 do
not doubt, if Congress, in its wisdom,
should pasa some such measure, the execu
tive officers of the government would find
a way to carry into effect its provisions.
Innumerable remittances of small amounts
are made through the mails dally, and up
to this time the government has provided
no convenient and inexpensive method to
meet this demand other than the existing
money order system. Millions of our people
live more or less remote from any post
office and a very large proportion of them
are unable to buy a money order or a bank
draft without Inconvenience. It is not un
reasonable to expect from the government
that it will provide an easy, convenient and
safe method to transmit small sums, say,
less than $2 in amount, without putting
the sender to the inconvenience and expense
which now obtains in compelling him to
purchase a draft or post office money order,
and the bills in question aim to provide
In view of objections raised by officials of
the Treasury Department Postmaster Gen
eral Payne requested the members of the
committee representing the Post Office De
partment to prepare a substitute bill which,
while believed to be not as comprehensive
or convenient as the post check bill, would
yet furnish a measure of relief and would
not Involve the Treasury Department In its
enforcement. This bill he incloses with his
| In concluding Postmaster General Payne
j "Hundreds of thousands of letters car
rying small amounts in the form of
ordinary currency or silver or postage
| stamps, are transmitted every year
I through the mails. These letters are temp
tations to those handling them, as tt U
easy to identify lrttrrs Inclosing currency.
The postal cheeks* provided for in the pro
posed bill would be much more easily ob
tained and cheaper than the present money
order, and, with the extension of the rural
free delivery service to the remote parts of
the country, would go far to provide a
cheap, convenient and safe irnthcd to
transmit small amounts through the malls,
and would be available to the money-ord**r
offices or the banks of the country."
Grievances of Navy Yard Ken.
A committee headed by Representative
Maynard, Republican National Committee
man George E. Bowden, Mr. Charles T.
Bland, member of the Virginia legislature
from Portsmouth, and Gen. Agnew. and rep
resenting the painters employed at the
Norfolk navy yard, called upon Secretary
Moody at the Navy Department yesterday
and spent over an hour in setting out to
the Secretary the grievances of the men.
The painters' complaint Is In regard to the
system of rating at the yard. They de
clare that men who are rated as second
class are required to do work which should
belong to a painter of the first class with a
discrepancy in pay. Secretary Moody lis
tened attentively to what the committee
had to say and assured Its members In a
general way that the regulations concern
ing the rating of navy yard laborers should
be strictly adhered to. and that there would
be no digression from them in the case of
the Norfolk yard.
