The arious divisions of the Treasury
Department this morning presented their
usual activity. Nearly every chief of each
division is at his post with the exception
of Charles G. Dawes. Comptroller of ihe
Currencj. who is still in Chicago on busi
ness of a personal nature, and Register
Lyons, who is attending the Republican
State convention at Atlanta, Ga
Ellis H. Roberts, Treasurer of the United
States, announced this morning "that the
distribution of the internal revenue collec
tions is going on according to the original
r.lan. and will probably be completed to the
first grouu of additional depository banks
in eiRht ciajs Every application for a
share of these deposits has been accepted
Where the depository bink was already tho
ecipient of internal revenue collections,
it has been permitted to ictain the deposits
up to the amount of Its pledged bonds
In cases where the ia e of exchange
rendered tiansfcrs to New York a burden,
the funds have been assigned to banks in
the same city, or in ncignboring localities.
With thcae exceptions, the internal rev
enue collections have been concentrated in
the National Citj Bank," New York,.
Every daj these collections laAe been
distributed in installments cf $50.00Q to the
seeral depository banKs at the jalio of
their bonds to the total amount p.cded
Bj this process the smaller banks first ip
ceived their quota, and funds remained in
the National Citj Bank onij a the dis
tribution went forward
The second group of depositorj hanks is
now taking form, and will be treated in
all respects in the same vvaj', and will be

PATENT OFFICE CHANGES.
N-oe!'l Itiitrii fulfill M:il- nuriilfr
tin- li'nr .luM nulled.
The most notable adance of the past
vear. in the work of the Patent Office has
bren the establishment of a classification
diMSion. the purpose of whih is to thor
ough! j revise and extend the clasificaUin
of patents and printed publications as it
was formerly carried on in the department.
The necesitj for this work after being
rcpeatedh called to the attention of Con
gress was lmallj recogniyd and a" act
entitled 'An act for revising and perfect
ing the classification of letters patent and
printed publications in the Patent Office"
was passed b Congress and received the
approval of the President on June 10 lSS
and went into force at the commencement
of the fiscal jear
As a preliininurv step loward the estab
lishment ol the division u was considered
desirable to ascertain how much of the
material was available and to that end it
was decided to rearrange the original draw
ings of all patents in numerical order and
to prepare a list on which thev could be
checked Thee drawings were heretofore
arranged b. subclauses and it was neces
sarv to know the classification of i patent
before it could be found which Often ne
cessitated a long search Bv the numeri
cal arrangement, now adopted, it is possi
ble to line! it at once and at the same
time much storage spate is saved
Thf work of rearrangement was fraught
with difficult j from the first, for there
were 10,000 patents which had no numbers
nnd were oulv to be identified bj name and
date The entire work of arranging tbe
drawings of nearlj hOO 000 patents aud
trade-muks has bceu substantially com
pleted. The work of preparing each patent, in
order to place it in us piopcr class, hah
alo neared completion as regards the back
i'-sue.s These patents have, in most in
stances, to be lead, in order that thev maj
be thoiougnlj understooJ, and rauch'caie
ha? to be exeiicsed in selecting titles for
each A card sjfltem has been ar'opied in
the subclasocr, which will reinedj loss or
erior on thr main lit
The bureu is at present ciowded for
space, but if is expected that upon the
iemoval of the General Land Office fiom
the Patent Office building a number of the
acant rooms will be appoitioned for Its
use. The work of the classification divi
sion nat, alrcadv proved a great benefit to
the office, greatlj increasing the accuracy
and rapiditj of searches.

Thomas Christopher and Mary Wilson,
alias Marj White, botli colored, were ar

The complaining witness, Mrs. Ljdia An

silk skirt, silver watch, silvei bracelet, and
a pair of kid gloves of the aggiegatc alue

guilt and she was dismissed. The man

THE ATTORNEYS BLAMED.
Their IIc-jrciI Plan t Sx t-II Ihe I'en
Twenty-five thousand applications for
pensions, as a result of the Spanish na',
have been tiled. It is eaid that this is a
erj large number, in view of the fact that
the war was concluded less than a year
and a half ago, and that the loss on the
American side was comparativclj light.
These applications, it is said, have been
made mainij through The offices of pension
attornejs in Washington
The total enlistments for the Cuban and
Pnilippine campaigns was 342 000 Fortj
thou'-and of these re-enlisted so that the
net enlistments were approximate! j 3c0.
000 Therefore one in exerj twe e men
who went to the war lat jear is an ap
plicant for a pension The records sho
that G50 members of the Ninth Massachu
setts haxe filed applications for pen-ions
Scciet Service officers have learned that
Washington pension attornejb are in pos
session of the muster rolls of eerj volun
teer regiment that was in the sen ice last
jear They ha agents at work in every
conimunitj in the countrj from which sol
diers were accepted Cp to date they have
bled claims for pensions to cover the case
of everj soldier who has been reported
dead, wounded, disabled, or sick by General
Otis Thej are enabled to do this bj first
obtaining copies of Otis' cable reports and
then ascertaining the names and residences
of relames next or kin of the solictors for
whom thej desire to ask for pensions.
