SWARMS OF OFFICE-SEEKERS.
Eager Place-Hunters Pouring
Into Sacramento.
They All Want Positions at the
State Capital.
Scores of Applicants for Humble Jobs
as Well as Sinecures—A Plethora
of Printers Already
on Hand.
By the Associated Pre«s )
Sacramento, Dec. 29—As the time for
the opening of the legislature is drawing
near the city is rapidly filling with of
fice-seekers who want everything in
sight, from keeper of the gates to eer
geant-at-arras in either house. The
local members are constantly besieged
with place-hunters, and scores upon
scores of small boys, generally accompa
nied by their fond mammae, are asking
or positions of pages. Several senators
nd assemblymen have already reached
the city and are being importuned for
their influence, and printers from
all pomts in the state imagine
there will also be fat places
for them in the state printing office dur
ing the session, notwithstanding the fact
that the city is already niled with idle
compositors. Pi inters are fairly swarm
ing into town in droves. Besides this,
Superintendent of Printing Johnston is
in receipt of dozens of telegrams aeKing
for "sits," and his mail is also freighted
with applications. There is no need of
printere coming to Sacramento, for they
will surely meet with disappointment if
they do. There will be no work foi
them. The present force can handle all
the work on hand and do whatever is
necessary during the session of tne
legislature.
WALL STREET FAILURES.
Two Firms of Stock Brokers Forced to
the Wall.
New York, Die. 29.—Stock Broker
M. E Butsky has failed. He was long
on 1200 shares of industrial and western
railroad stocks.
Wayland.Trask ft Co.hay.'also failed.
It was known that this firm was in
trouble, aud its sales of Northern Pa
cific, preferred, caused a break in that
stoctc this morning. It was supposed
the tirni had passed the crisis. The
firm was carried down by the shrinkage
in Northern Pacific securities and the
inability of customers to respond to
calls for margins.
The coal sales agents today decided to
make no change in the price for Jan
uary.
B. 11. Stern, attorney for the firm,
gave out the following statement con
cerning the firm: The suspension of
tbe firm is due to the fact that one of
the partners, Theodore Baldwin, was
speculating on his own eccount with the
firm's money. He lost in this way about
$150,000. Baldwin has confessed every
thing, and is now at work helping an
expert iv straightening out the books.
The firm had no outstanding accounts,
one of the exchanges having notified the
firms with which they were dealing to
close out their contracts They also
sent around thia morning and paid off
all their loans at banks.
HOSP-ERBO AND CREMATED.
Tho Sud Fate of a Maiden Station Agent
Near Sacramento.
Sacramento, Dec. 29.—About 4 o'clock
this morning tbe Southern Pacific rail
road depot at Brighton Junction, five
miles southeast of this city, was discov
ered on the, auditing built of inflamma
ble material, was eoou totally destroyed.
The residents oi the place soon after be
gan searching the ruins and found the
remains oi MiseE O. Ayres, wbo resided
in the building, and who had been em
ploytd for the past two years aa operator
and' atauon agent. Nothing but the
badly charred trunk remained. Some
people believe that the woman, who was
35 years oi age, had become despondent
and committed suicide. The railroad
detectives, however, are firmly con
vinced that Mits Ayres waa murdered
by tramps for money which she was
supposed to have about the station.
Thtte tramps were lounging about the
station yesteiday, and late in the after
noon she ordered them away. It is be
lieved they returr.ed duringjthe night,
murdered ber aud then fired the build
ing to conceal the crime. The dead
girl's mother resides in Stanton, Neb.

AN ARMOR FLATS PLANT.
On* Will Probably Ro Established at
San Francisco.
Washington, Dec. 29.—The Pacific
coast is to have an armor plate plant,
according to a local paper. Tne story is
as follows; It is stated on reliable au
thority tbat a concern bas been incor
porated at San Francisco, and has half
of its working capital already sub
scribed, for tbe establishment of an
armor plate factory in that city. The
plant, it is understood, will be capable
of producing not only the heaviest
armor, but will be equipped for the
manufacture of guns, shot and sheila
and heavy forgings of all descriptions.
Tbe project will be the result of
the policy of distribution which is ob
served by the navy department in
awarding the contracts for tbe ships of
the new navy. At present every gun and
projectile which is used in the navy is
manufactured in rat-tern states, and
the cost of transporting them to the
western coast is an item of no little im
portance. It is pretty generally con
ceded, however, that the carrying out
of the project will be largely affected by
tbe awards for the construction of two
new vessels, the lowa and the Brook
lyn. The Cramps of Philadelphia rre
the lowest bidders on both ships, and
in the event tbat the Union Iron works
fail to get one of them, it is highly
probable tbat the manutacture of
armor plates on tbe coast will be de
ferred. Secretary Tracy's decision in
regard to the award for the new ships
will probably be made early next week.
In the meantime the indications are
that the Cramps will get both vessels.
There is some talk to tbe effect that the
Union Iron works will lower their bid
on the Brooklyn to the amount made by
the Cramps. It is safe to predict that
if such a step is decided upon by the
San Francisco firm, the Brooklyn will be
launched in the Pacific.
ANNIHILATED CURRENCY
A NEW WAY OF SWELLING UNCLE
SAUL'S ASSETS.
The Depletion of the Treasury Glossed
Over by a Showing; That the BsiO,
-000.000 of Paper Money Is
I'aßt Redemption.
Washington, Dec. 29 —Id all recently
written about the depleted condition of
tbe United States treasury, little or no
account has been taken of tbe fact that
with each passing year the treasury ia a
large gainer by the complete destruction
by casualty of it's outstanding obliga
tions. How much this amounts to the
best statisticians of the treasury depart
ment have no means of definitely ascer
taining. No two sets of figures are
alke. Since 1562, when the government
began the issue of paper money, $5,819,
--629 108 was issued up to July
1, 1892. Within the Bame period
H,852,451,629 was redeemed, leaving
outstanding on July 1, 1892. bb liability
against the government, $967,177,479.
In an exhaustive inquiry on the subject
made by United States Treasurer Hyatt,
it was estimated that the aggregate loss
on all issues up to January, 1688, was
not less than $8,700,000. This estimate
did not include fractional currency, tbe
50 cent, 25-cent,lo cent ands cent "shin
plasters," in such exteneive circu
lation for a few years following
the war. United .States Treas
urer Nebecker, in his report this
yenr, etates that more than $15,000,000
of this fractional currency ia outstand
ing, though it has practically gone out
of circulation, and but little more than
$4000 - .vaß presented for redemption laet
year. What is outstanding is held to a
great extent by collectors of coin, and
its value as auch is greater than its face
value. The aggregate United Sta'eß
currency, fractional and other
wise, estimated to have been de
stroyed and not likely to be presented
for redemption, approximates by these
figures more than $14,000,000. A recent
estimate prepared in tbe treaeury de
partment places tbe sum as high $20,
--000,000. The money can only be taken
out of the liabilities of the government
by congressional enactment. This will
probably be attempted in the near
future.

PEACE IN CENTRAL AMERICA.
The Trouble Between Costa Rica and
Nicaragua Exaggerated.
Washington, Dec. 29. —Tbe attention
of the Nicaraguan minister in Washing
ton was today called to the Panama dis
patch stating that the bonndary dispute
between Costa Rica and Nicaragua was
assuming threatening dimensions and
that hostilities between the two repub
lics might begin at any time. He eaid:
"That is all wrong and I wish you would
give it the fullest contradiction. Both
countries (all Central America in fact)
are interested in the Nicaragua canal,
and the reports might do us great in
jury if not contradicted. There is no
truth in them. There has been a little
wordy discussion, that is all."
The turning point
in woman's life brings peculiar
weaknesses and ailments. Dr.
Pierces Favorite Prescription
brings relief and cure. It is a
powerful, invigorating, restorative
tonic and nervine. It imparts
strength to tho whole system in
general, and to the uterino organs
and appendages in particular.
"Run-down," debilitated and deli
cate women need it. It's a legiti
mate medicine — purely vegetable,
perfectly harmless. It's guaranteed
to give satisfaction in every case, or
money refunded. Nothing else does
as much. You only pay for the
good you get. Can you ask more?
As a regulator and promoter of
functional action, at that critical
period of change from girlhood to
womanhood, " Favorite Prescrip
tion " is a perfectly safe remedial
agent, and can produce only good
results. It is equally efficacious and
valuable in its effects when taken
for those disorders and derange
ments incident to that later and
most critical period, known as "The
Change of Life."
