The purposu or their work is practically to learn what lias become of the money earned by tlie two roads and to discover Hie true lalue of the properties. It Is Mis'etted by certain of the bond holders that money lias been foolishly, ex tra Miganllj, or worse, expended, eoinrary lo .sound business judgment. It is also feared that an organised if forl lias been made to depreciate the, aluc r the two concerns and the boiul luiMers beliee that their condition will be found to be much U'lter than lias In en reported by the receiver's. KCIIOEIT'S lTJRl'OSD. To put it another way, it Is stated that Mr .Nilioepf lias laiund hluiselt to advance the Inteic'sts of a certain air motor for pecuniary realms and also to bind and de llver llio tvvo lines i Mo the tialius ol Hie AVidener-ElUnvUolau syndicate, embrac ing, in addition.

The rest were kept out in the net, unable, to sell at advanced figures, and therefore liecame much dt-gruiitled. TliW, so The Times ih Informed, led to the iln. Won, which lias been growing wider and wider. The majority, or Truesdi 11-Wideiier-El-ktii-Dolaii-Xewtiolilites, wanted a receiver and an lsue of his certificates to secure funds for extension, iniprovementsand new motive power.

THE OBJECTIONS. On the other hand, certain bondholders are making great objections lo the issue of receiver's certificates, as by law they take precedence of the bi.nds, and there foie holders of the latter would be crowded to the wall on the wind-up. Either wa ou look, according to the various sides of the fight, Kclioepf & Co. stand to win in any event. The only question is, who shall get the fust whack at deioiling the mangled remains of the roads? It is Jocularly slated by some to be an aggravated case of car or train robbery, and the lone Wetern bandit who holds up seven or eight cars in a small figure be side tlie Eastern highwaymen who git iway with two entire lines, with eighty cars and contents. Even tlie most sanguine of Investors does not expect to get back the money paid for shares Heic is the way one gen tleman puts it: "Two hundred doilnrsin the thousand is about all that I expect out of it. The road lias been crookedly managed for the benefit of those in control. 'I know it, because the report of fares received has nlwajs been shorter than the actual figures Then, too, alleged ex penditures and losses upon live stock were falsely charged A conductor toiu me two cars ago that something was wrong It is easily iKisslble, because the man hold ing Hie majority of stock could and did apiKiInt his men to all the subordinate office positions, where he completely domi nated them. "Another thing, tills receivership is the re&ultof a scheme hatched by Schoepf and NevvlKild to depreciate the property anil scare off the small stockholders Why, a few weeks tiefore it was done I was ap proached by a man who wanted to buy my shares in the Beit Line for 515 each. ONE MAN'S VIEW. "I said No, because they had cost $52 each, and in view of all that lias happened I'll throw tl.em away before letting Scluxpf and Ills pnatecrew get them "Rapid transit will save both roads, but not a compressed air scheme. Sclioepf K interested in thcHardlcCoiuptnv and wants to spend our money exiierunc nting with an inrern.il gas machine that has never been used for anything but mining and hoisting work. "I am fighting for in y rights and for fair play The worst tliat can be said of Schoepr is 'breach or trust,' and there is no legal punishment ror tliat. "TruesdelKs sale to Xewbold was really Intended to bring about the introduction of the trolley Into the city, bat The Times de feated that project, and. I believe, it has been abandoned, at least, fur awhile." A prominent figure in tlie opposition put it another way. when he said 'Those experts are good accountants, but Uicy don't know- the railroad business. Besides, I don't think they will report what they actually find, and will juggle the fig ures to suit tlie 'gang.' Washington is a little old to experience railroad wrecking. but It has come, and we must grin and bear It or fight. I am constitutionally for tlie latter 'The only trouble Is that some of us arc willing to pay the S10 due on our shares. others arc not, still others want receiver s certificates, and again some think that with new management we can borrow on tlie property enough money to give rapid transit. "When the Fourteentli and Ninth Btrcet lines ran horse cars, the Eleventh street road carried its share of tlie business, and it would do so now if it was on a fair coinelitivc ba6is. "During tlie summer the Belt Line car ried hundreds around town only for the ride, and with rapid transit it would inter cept and absorb lots of travel tliat now goes to tlie other roads."

At the meeting of the November term of the circuit court, wliich began here yesterday. Associate Judge James B. Henderson spoke strongly of tlie recent crimes, and referred to the Buxton trngedyandthe lynching of Randolph. In his charge to the grand jury he dwelt at length upon the munj- crimes which have been committed in this county since the last session of court, ind stated that never lie fore in the history of the court lias there leen so many prisoners lu jail and so many heinous crimes committed in such a short space of time. He So;e -of the Buxton tragedy, tlio Thornton murder and the 1 neb ing of Randolph. He' characterized the latter crime as a ilclilier.ite, willful, and cowardly murder, which, he believed, was committed by a small crowd of brutal men, organized with the sole purpose of murder.

Comptmller Bowler of the Treasury De partment iu his annual report states tbut tlie unfinished business or the First and Second Comptrollers' offices has been practically dlsioscd of. A verj- few ac counts still remain on hand awaiting tlie decision of courts. Mr. Bowler submits statistics giving the detailed work of his office, which show thin by far tlie largest number of appeals was taken fiom the settlements made bv- the Auditor for the Statu and oilier departments, the number being twice lis many as the number of appeals from the Auditor for tl.e War Depart ment, the next highest on the list, the I'umlier of appeals from the Auditors for the oilier departments being compara tively small. WHERE I'I'I'OIia. WERE FOUND. Tlie appeals from tettlement made by the auditor fortlie State and othir depart ments were principal!- on accounts ror the compensation if orf'ccrs or United States conns, district attoruejs, marshals, clerks, and commissioners. A Change was made by Ccngressln the act or May 2t, lbiiii, hi the sjstem or compensating district attoruejs and mar shals, from fees dcpmdlng upon the par ticular services reuderid by these re spective officers, to fixed salaries, as pre scritied by that act. The teport further says: mo work of completing the unfinished business or the formerc'omptrollers and the tommlssloner or Custom,, the revising of accounts m appeals,' and deciding ques tions presented by heub, of de!irtments and iilsiiuing oriicers, lo,eitier with the routine work imposed on the comptroller's ofrice, has been or sui.ii a cnaracter as to pre clude hitherto the revision of accounts by the comptroller upon His own motion, ex cept in u rew Isolated cases. DETAILED REVISIOXOFACCOUNTH. Ml Is believed that rrJu work of the office s now In sucli condition that attention may be given to this important provision of the accounting system heretofore negle-cted and that a sjstemullc detailed revision of particular uccourit covering all the classes of accounts settled by the various auditors may be Inaugurated during the present fiscal year. "It not infrequently happens that con structions placed upon acts or Congress relating to the compensation or other emo.utnents or officersof the United States, tbelangtiagcor which is somewhat ambigu ous, become, by reason of- long contin uance, the settled practice of the executive departments, as constituting the true con struction or the statutes. "Manj years arterward the construc tion or these acts by the accounting offi cers may be reversed by the courts, and a larger amount than had been therctorore allowed is held to be due these officers. LETS IN CLAIMS. "Immediately alter such decisions claims cove! ing the entire period or time since the enactment or the laws are presented, cither bj orricers themselves, or, in many cases where the construction of tlie ac counting officers lias continued for a loug period unreversed, by the heirs of oHlcers already dead." Mr. Bowler thinks that a limitation should be put as to the time when claims can be pieseiited to his orrico tor settlement or re opening, and sajs Legislation applicable to all claims ol a generally similar character is respect fully reoonime.-Kled. The time of the ac counting officers is fully occupied in the settlement of current matters, and should not be taken up m the adjustment or a class or claims which might lime lieen presentc d to the court by elaimauts at earlier dates Hat the time tliey had felt themselves ag grieved bv the determination of the ac counting officers." -. -.-. COMING TO THE THEATEKS. On next Monday night at the New Na tional Theater Mls-s Georgia Cayvan will appear for the first time in tins city at the head of a company of her own, and in the play in which she stored perhaps the greatest success of her life, Robert Bu chanan's beautiful pastoral drama.

Theater Corapaiij-.'or winch -Miss Caj-van was then leading lady, about four jears ago. Since then it has been largely rewritten and rearranged, and It is said that the changes made have improved it materially, though it wa6 alwajs a very strong play. For the present proeluction Mr. noraer 1 Emens has painted new and elaborate scenery and the presentation in Washington will bo iu every detail Identical with that made in New "fork.

"ThcGrcatT.raln Robbery," which come"! to the Granel Opera House next week. Is one of Thomas H. Davis und William T. Kcogh's most magnificent new produc tions for this season It is n purely Amer ican play from the pen of bcott Mart le. In It the Southwest has been taken for the scene of action, and at a time when each day was a drama of startling events. During tlie da.vs of its early settlement, and especially after the opening up of Oklahoma to tlie Inaiiwr-, bandits and desperadoes of every description terror ized that section of tlie country by their murderous doings. Tlie plot embraces stirring incidents of those days, the in tensity of the drama being relieveil by interlacing the picturesque and amising Miles of life in tl-c Wild West. The see ne of action affords an oppor tunity for the scenic artist that is seldom orrereel by a modern production. The op portunity is improved by magnificent stage settings, representing scenes in the Red River valley, a rallread station on the plain", a mountain torrent, a dugout in the foot-hills, ami a robber's rendezvous and I nilian encampment in thefamous Red River Canon. .Mirih-provoking comedy Irradiates the entire play, furnished by the characteriza tion of many quaint anil odd Western t pes. Incidental features are numerous special ties, acting tears and real Indian warriors. "The War of Wealth," a powerful anil successful drama, by C. T. Dazey, author or "In Old Kentucky," will bo seen at the Academy nextweek. The story-is laid In New York, and, as tlie title Indicates, deals with financial lire in that city. The attempt or a Junior part ner in a banking house to wreck tlie bank toeover up his peculation, and to throw the blame on the cashier, furnishes the motive, andthcadvancementornlargcsumormoney to the Institution by a wealthy woman In love with the cashier to tide it over its difficulties, furnishes the counter-plot. Marnger Lilt has provided a remarkably strong cast; in fact, the production und com pany are the same as were employed in the long run of the play iu New York last sea son. No meloelraifia proeluced in Ne-w York last season was so enthusiastically received as "The War of Wealth," and none was more warmly commended by the press. "Chris and Lena" will he next week's attraction at the popular Bijou. Mr. Pete Baker as the Jolly German Chris Infuses new life into the character by his original, good-natured portrayal, and his new songs, j-odlings, and lullabies have .scored for him a great hit. The changes in "Chris and Lena" are many. It Is a comedy in its text. Inter woven with a story of adventure, full of melodious new songs, sparkling in pure "German wit and humor. Mr. Baker lias wisely surrounded himself with a good company. Manager Kcrnan's attraction for next week will lie the Reise Hill English Follv Company, an up-to-date burlesque organi zation, with plenty of wit and humor, pret ty girls, livelv dances, catchy music and clever comedians.
