G1LMER IS DISCOURTEOUS
This Was Reason, According to Mr,
Payne, Why His Visits and Demands
lor Papers Were Objected to
by the Clerks.
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, May 28.?Postmaster
Gonoral Payne to-day made public the
answers of Henry A. Castle, the Auditor
?jf the Treasury, for tho Postofnce De?
partment, and Comptroller Tracewell, of
Ihe Treasury, regarding tho Tulloch
charges of Irregularities In the postal
administration. Tho answers specifical?
ly deny allegations of wrongful proce?
dure. Comptroller Tracewell charges T.
W. GUtnor, formerly an expert of his
oilloe, with abstracting, but subsequently
returning.Upon demand, the letter autho?
rizing Mr. Gllmer'to examino tho nccounts
of any postollleo except Washing-ton and
Now York. Mr. Tracewell alleges this let?
ter was written by Gllmer himself with?
out any suggestion from tlio Comptroller,
Mr. Castle says that the mira of tlio ten?
tative disallowances by Export Gllmer
end the Comptroller aggregated ?932; that
the credits Ilnnlly disallowed out of a to?
tal of a quarter of a million were ?185,
of which ho claims only seven dollars
wan Incorrectly audited. This, Mr. Cas
tlo says, is tho basis of Mr. Tulloch'B
charge of disallowances of $30,000 or $40.
The Postmaster-General's statement
nays that tlio letuws are mndo publia
at tho ir>qupst of tho two otllclals and
that It will nppear from thorn how much
foundation there was for tho Tulloch
Mr. Payne adds; "In tho Post?nico De?
partment tlio complaint mndo of Mr. Gll?
mer wns that ho would abruptly and dis?
courteously enter the rooms of depart?
ment clerks, demand papers In nn offen?
sive way, and then carry them nwny'
without leaving a receipt. It wns de?
manded that lie lie Instructed to net tin a
gentleman and leave receipts for nil ?va?
pors which he carried out of the building,
for If any were misplaced tho Department
clerks would bo held responsible."
Mr. Castle in lis answer wiys thnt Mr.
Tulloch shares in a prevailing misap?
prehension that nn auditor Is c)wirn<?.i
with tin? responsibility of keeping other
officials "correct nnd honest," and In de?
termine the necessities of the service. The
Auditor says that such function? would
be fatal lo administrative freedom by tho
head of n department,
Regarding 'ha Be-ttlemont and subse?
quent revision of an account of tho Into

the Auditor'? oflloos. Tho wide, (llsorptlon

Just a dozen enthusiasts faced tha
traps at Chlmborazo Park yesterday and
spent tho evening pleasantly, pulverizing
properly, pies made of clay. P. J. Fllp
pon won the weekly medal on a score of
21 out of 25, Mr. R. L. Johnson- was easily
high gun by breaking 40 out of 60. He
mndo the longest run on theso grounds,
that has boon made this season?37
straight?and it Is safe: to sny he will put
up equally ns good score Saturday In the
Interest In the sport of trap-shooting
has Increased largely slnco the sen-son
has opened up. as may bo seen by looking
over the scores of the shooters and com?
paring tho number now with tho attend
anco of several weeks ago. This Is In a
gr^nt mensuro attributed to tlio recent
tournament given by Messrs, Harris
Fllppen & Company to Introduce tho Pe?
ters goods. Just after this shoot It
was thought tlint Anderson, tho winner
of tho handsomo gold medal, wn? travel?
ing "Easy Street," but as the time grows
nearer for him to defend the trophy, the
following well known shooters have chal?
lenged him, nnd arc determined that the
Messrs. Harris, Flipped & Company's
idea shall bo curried out, that the modal
shall be kept moving among the shooters:
Messrs. Richard Johnson, Dr. IliU.smnn,
P. J. Klippen, H. Brown, Franklin

ilig a holiday, and all shooters can at?
tend, as an additional attraction, a team

Some Important measures av? now pend?

them tha Bell Telephone ordinance that
Is being considered by the Ordinances
Committee, and the resolution appropria?
ting $1,400 for a new homo for the keeper
of Maury Cemetery, was the talk In the
These two mensures are far more Im?
portant than would appear from the sur?
Tho Bell Telephone ordinance affects a
number of business men and private oltl
zcns, who, until an ordinance Is granted,
must do without telephone connection.
Under tho present condition of things,
the company may not extend its line nor
place a pole. The proposed ordinance al?
lows tho company the camo privilege they
enjoy In Richmond, and It Is quits proba?
ble that the Ordinance Committee, of
which Alderman Abbott Is chairman, will
be ready to make Its report at th? next
meeting of the Common Council.
The Finance Committee will at Its noxt
