A Game Which, Had It Been Suc cessful, Would Eava Takon (40,000,000 From the United States Treasury, Treasury Regulations About Draw backs on Jute Baffin. How the Would-Ba SooopWas Disclosed and Brought to an Inglorious Bnd Alleged Payment of 18,000 for a Treasury Ruling. New Yojik, Juno 27. A Washington special to the Evening W says: Tho TreuBury Department has made an im portant decision in regard to drawbacks on jute bagging, which will change the regu lations so as to require that drawbacks be tnid only to actual exporters, and that .rnsfactory evidence be presented to the Iinrtuicnt that the bagging was tnado o( imported material. The stutute relative to drawbacks upon material of that kind requires this, but for some reason there bus been a marked departure from the technical language ol the statute for the last three years, the practice having, grown up of allowing draw backs simply upon tho ptesentation of ship agents' manifests that a ccrUin number of bales of cotton wcie exported, without any proof that the persons w ho exported were the owners of the cotton, or that the jute of which the bagging was made was iuijorted. The practice bus grown to great proportions under a rcgula lion issued by Assistant Secretary May nurd. There area good many indications that ring has been formed which in op crating in juto-bagging drawbacks, and that arrangements have been perfected to con t "Sue these operations upon a much . larger scale. Tho method of operating seems to have been thin Tho combi nation enter into an arrangement by which they may obtain from tho ship owners or Importing agents copies of the manifest of cotton exported, together with a power of attorney author- , lung them to collect drawbacks. So extcn -ive had become the operations of this couiuinsimn liiat Its mem tiers formed plan which, if successful, would have taken millions from the treasury. Ihis plan was nothing lets than lo endeavor to collect from the Treasury Icpurtiiiunt drawbacks upon Hie jute bagging in which every bale of cotton had been wrapped id exported from the close of the war to M), or for a period ol twenty-four years, Tho scheme appears to have been to 'obtain from all ship agents a.lio would furnish them lists ol the manifests of bales of cotton exported, to rut from lite ship agents or the exporters' agents, as if they were the actual owners of the cotton. iowcrs of attorney to collect drawbacks, without having any proof as to the actual importation of the material of which the bagging was made, A very hasty estimato shows that the combina tion, if successful, might reasonably have rx period to obtain 1 10,009,000 from the Treasury. Hut Assistant-Secretary Ticho- nor, who has been Investigating the sub ject, hus decided to issue the ucw rcgula' lions which will confine the payment of drawbacks strictly wilhiu the liuii'u of the law. Attention was Cut called to this matter In a peculiar manner. Mont ol the owners and shippers ol cotton in the South who send their mcrchsnilise to .ew 1 ork from Charleston and Savannah, do not expect to excrciso sny further function of owner ship alter the col ton has been delivered to the factor, the letter from that moment eseuiucs to stand iu III relation ol owner. Some ol tho cotton producers learning that considerable drawbacks were being paid, ascertained that they were the itcrmins law fully enlitled to the money.if sny one should lisve It, and wrote 10 the leparttiirnl as to tthuir rights. In some instances it was discovered that the drawbacks bad already been paid to other parties, where- upon the persons lawluily entitled to the drawback gave notice that they had a claim against the L ulled Males for the amount wrongfully paid. In Ihia manner the attention of tho department was called to this drawback combinsl.on. There was another circumstance which did not eseaiie Attention of the authorities. In the llcmcnt of an estate here some months there was a controversy ueiwecu heirs, and one of tho Items to Ahieli ol!ftl w tiisde was a claim of tH.WKJ CXIK-ndcil, it was slh'ged, to secure a certain ruling of tho Treasury iK'part ment relative to drawbacks upon iuto bag ging. This item hits never yet been ex plained In tho court suit the Treas ury authorities have obtained no further information about It, although the developments will be closely watched. How ;.1,0UU could possibly have lcen ex pended iu counertinn with a drawback regulation cannot be understood. The natural Inference Is that some lobby agent imposed u on the parties in question, and claimed that ho bad influence which he did not possess. The managers of the combination have not hesitated to spend considerable sums of money, as tliey engaged ex I'nited Males Sc'nslor William fwkney Why to, ol Maryland, to advocatu tho thilin that the Treasury should allow drawbacks to lie paid upon bsgging exported from the close of tho w ar to date.

A Local Committee Makes a Statement to the General Public. rirrsniRo, Pa., Juno 27. -The follow ing communication has been furnished tho Associated Press, with a request that it be given general publicity: JnHxsTowN, Pa., June 90, 1X9. To all Committees Holding funds fur Kvllvf ol Johnstown Surftrcrt: Dear Sir The Johnstown Finance Com mittee for the relict of sutTerers by the flood would represent to you that there is urgent necessity for tho prompt and wise uso of the money w hich baa been gener ously contributed by tho country for the alleviutiou of the distress ot our suffering people Largo as these sums of money are, they will be uttorly inadequate to do more than to mitigate the present distress aud to aid this community to make aa ef fort for self help. Their patience has been unprecedented, and 1. 1 ore now begin ning with courago to reconstruct, in somo temporary fashion, shelter for their fami lies and places in which business can be carried on. It is impossible for the com- mittoo, or any number of committees, to supply this community with tho things it needs. It is really In n9"d ol evorvthinir. and tho onlv nrnrtienl war ol helping it is to put into tho bunds : ! ! ...... oi ine inuiviunui memoers oi mo com mittee money by which they can get what they need, not merely (or their subsistence, but all the various requirement ol a peo ple who are beginning life anew iikh a devastated ' tract ol land on which their fair city stood. Our committeo has been in receipt of contributions of money sent us fiom all over tho country. Wo have used nccctsnrily a portion of this money for the lubor incident t ) tho distribution of supplies of food, clothing and shelter, tho collecting ol autistic, etc We have waited anxiously lor somo movement to lo msdo on the part ol tho committees throughout the country bnving largo sums ol money in their hnn Is which would in dicate wh; they intendod to do with those funds. We can wait no longer. I'lio necessity is SO great lor prompt action that our committee lias been obliged lo adopt a plan lor using its pittance of money lor tliu immcdiato relief ol tho sullVrcrs. It haa set on loot and will have com pleted shortly an acciiralo registration ol all the surviving stiuVrrrs, and it is pro posed as an equitable and quick method ol reaching the first picsaiug wants to di vide the money which it holds equally among them. The sum w hich will bv given to each will necessarily be small, but it w ill inspire them with the hoe that the larger amounts ol money contributed I.ir their ro lief may sjwedily become availablo, anil it will give a better heart and a fresher hopo to thoao who are now atrujrgling to re establish themselves in their lost employ ments and avocations. The position here is as follows: The working eplo uru of fered ample employment, and as they nro a people who own their own homes, they are sticking to Johnston n in spite of their present privations. Our merchants aud tradesmen, seeing this, are quickly open ing their stores in lUuuUes or board build in pi of auy tyK. We have thus on tho ono hand com munity needing enough supplies from tho merchants to do a good busincia, and on the other hand the merchanta making an earnest effort to supply this demaud. If wo can bring those tao together and keep them together during the next aixly days, our community will again be eclf-attsUin-lug. Hut already tho inability of tho peo plo to purchaso ia causing great depend ency upon tho part of tho merchants which, if not sieedily checked, will cause further want and hopelcamicsii. There ia but one method to check this, namely: To furnish the people tliu funds with which to go to the merchants and mako the pur chases of that which will relieve them from their suffering. Two ncods are before us: 1. To commence distribution immediately. 2. To continue it on a basis equitable to all and satisfsctory to tho country. The registration spoken ol abovo takes into account merely the number ol survi vors to be reached quickly by tiio first dis tribution. Tim shove ia for Sed. Fol lowing this the same machinery will col lect this and accurate statistics so that by the time good cllccts of the first distribu tion have worn away wo will le ready lor (air and equitable further distribution, ol further sums secured based, not Uon tho number of the Hood luirururs but upon their respective losses. Coincident with this distribution we are making nil tho arrangements hero that wo can ninke to curUui the free distribution ol supplies of all sort, In order to cl'.tck Wo largo evils: 1. Waste of money con tributed by tho nation. Immense amounts ol valuable material are coming hero, tho very things that are not l.eedod, while the things that are needed, tho peoplo.asws say, are absolutely suffering for. 2. To check the demoralizing eflect ppon the manhood of our Inhabitants. Those who were good men before the Hood, aro be coming demoralised and upset by tbe (set that they llnd they can liv without work. Nor must they be blamed, after what they have gone through; it is only human na ture; nevertheless it is oinuthing to be quickly checked. A I ill t o thought must convince yna that no committee, however crfcct, can satis factorily and wisely meet the wants of at least 10,000 pcot'le hen each ono have dif ferent wants. Vo will add to this another strong argument In favor of our plan. Granted that the nation has contributed (l.OtiO.OiKI. Tho quicker that the money reaches tho stiflcrers the more ol it I hey will get. It costs moiiey to take care of the organisation which distributes. Th more quickly this organization ctiecl lis pur jHieo tho greater tho pcrcentsgo ol this assumed 11,000,000 will reach iu proper channel. We understand that yon are holding a fund devoted for this p J. pose pending somo arrangement for its proper distribu tion. We would strongly urge you to con sider the plan we Isv before yon, and we would beg of you unless you ran supgeat something better, to at once come to our aid with your fund. Do not wait longoron the proponod action of anvbody else, but act at once and for yoursolt'. If you do not approve of our plan wo stand ready to change or amend it. Wo atund ready to do anything that will quickly bridgo owr tho present suite-rings of this community. Wo urge von to send your fund hero for local distribution, and to send with it somo trustworthy repre sentative, whom wo will add to our com mittee, giving him full power to speak for tho fund you contribute. We urge you to send some ono prepared to Btay with us for at least sixty days, if not a volunteer, then somo one, whom you can employ and pay for his services. . 'Wo ask that you consider this carefully and lot us hear from you very promptly. Wo may add that our plan hus been submitted to a full meeting of tho citixens and has met with their unqualified and unanimous approval. Plcaso let us hear from you quickly.
