internal improvements, or to support a
comprehensive plan of revenue reduc
tion. In all probability, the President
will convene a special session of the fif
tieth Congress, which he can do thirty
days after March 4th, and submit a fiscal
project upon which the Administration
would be prepared to go to the country
in the next Presidential election.
. One thing is certain, however. The
coin accumulation in the Treasury vaults
has reached a point at which it must be
stopped if the business interests of the
country are not to suffer serious injury.
There can be no reasonable excuse for
taking and hoarding so much of the
-ople's money, and the true and proper
.solution of the difficulty would be a
sweeping abolition and reduction of Cus
toms duties and internal taxes.
CHANGE IN MANNERS AND COSTUME
DURING THE LAST DECADE.
AN OVERFLOWING TREASURY.
The United States is in an enviable
f nancial position. Its coffers are full to
verflowing, and the ingenuity of Ameri
- an politicians is taxed to invent a plan
: ) "reduce the Treasury surplus." We
ferred to several of these plana a-few
ays ago, but in all probability this work
will be left for the next Congress to ac
' omplish. The life of the present Con
gress expires at midnight of March 3d,
ind it is hardly probable that it can
,'nish all the imortant work before it
at the intervening time, much less at
! 'mpt fiscal legislation of the magnitude
evolved in such a proposition.
On the 3d of January the Treasury ac
um ulation of gold was stated to be
170,912,413, the. largest stock since the
.(sumption of specie payments in 1879
ccept once in November, 1SS1 ; and
'range to sav, the stock of silver was
'eadilv din i liahing despite the con-
'i.'iued coinage of that metal. The
: uble standard, therefore, does not
nake the United States the dump
i :g ground of all the silver of the world,"
'Hther does the continuous coinage of
silver dollars under the Bland bill
drive all the gold out of the country,"
' i was contended by the banking inter
its in their bitter fight against t he re-
ionetization of silver. As a matter of
ct, the law making silver dollars full
! ijal tender for all debts, public and
'ivate, in the United States, had a prc-
sely contrary effect, and was the in
; icing cause of the revival of business
; iid continuous prosperity of that coun
ty. The Secretary of the Treasury has
i ade a further call for 3 per cent bonds,
U'gregating $10,000,000, and there is
; -ason for thinking that the balance of
inese bonds, amounting to $54,000,000
..iter this call, will be redeemed lefore
::ie close of the year. In effect, there--re,
although the National Bank circu
lation will necessarily be reduced by
tills debt liquidation, the Treasury will
ifset that drawback by releasing $04,
'.'00,000 of its gold accumulation which
Must go into circulation, while the an
i ual saving in interest would amount to
11,920,000. This saving would of course
add to the debt paying ability of the
ountry, or in other words, would go to
swell the increasing annual surplus in
ihe National Treasury.
As recently pointed out by the Adver
tiskr, the funded debt of the United
States, after the 3 per cents have all
been redeemed, will consist of $250,000,-
(XH) in 4!X ier cent bonds maturing in
1891, and" $738,000,000 in 4 per cents,
falling due in 1.)07. The redemption of
the A per cents in four years from now
is also absolutely certain ; but the 4 per
cents, having a life of twenty years,
command a high figure as an untaxable
investment, and were quoted at 30 per
;ent premium on the 4th instant. This
fact alone would prevent the Secretary
of the Treasury buying them in the
)pen market; and indeed the current
premium of 10 ier cent on the 4 '. per
cents will prevent any attempt to fore
stall their maturity to save interest.
Four years will soon pass by, and then
the bonds will be redeemed at their face
val e. In 1891, therefore, the funded
debt of the United States will stand at
$738,000,000 bearing 4 per cent in
terest, this burden being fastened
upon it by Senator Sherman while
Secretary of thu Treasury. It was
considered at the time to be a good
; financial operation, but it is now re
garded in a somewhat different light.
T icre is a further funded debt for which
the United States Treasury is responsi
ble of $64,623,512, being bonds issued to
the Pacific Railroads, and which these
g.eat corporations must ultimately repay.
In stating the funded debt of the nation,
therefore, the Pacific Railroad bonds
mednot betaken into account. They
are amply secured. "
It follows from this presentation that
fiscal measures must soon be considered
with a view to the remission of duties
and taxes. The Republican party still
. clings to its protective theory, while the
Democratic party is not agreed upii a
common tariff plank. Southern Demo
crats are coquetting with protection,
while the western tier of States which
hold the. balance of power have not
quite made up their minds whether to
deplete the Treasury by exjeuditures on

dhismSchools and Colleges The Em
peror's Promises Trade of the Island.
Among the late arrivals from Japan were
W. C. De Lano Eastlake and his mother, who
are visiting San Francisco on their way east.
Mr. Eastlake is secretary of the Society for
the Advancement of Medical Science in
Japan and a member of the Asiatic society,
and has, during the three years of his res
idence in the orient, become thoroughly ac
quainted with the manners and customs of
the people and not less familiar with the
.country, both in apolitical and physical sense.
In an interview with a reporter Mr. East
lake portrayed in glowing colors the country
and its people.
The people, he said, are fast advancing in
the civilization of their political, moral and
intellectual lives, and scarcely without excei
tion are anxious to reap the benefits of Euro
pean and American education. In the cus
toms of dress there has been a marked change
during the last decade until now the officials
and the better classes assume the English cos
tume. Among the former it is compulsory,
and upon the street tho old Japanese garb is
seldom seen except on the poorer classes.
Among tho ladies, however, the loose gowns
of the olden days are still popular, but even
these are gradually growing obsolete, and at
fasluonable balls the European dress is gen
erally assumed, while the programmes of the
Japanese orchestras generally include the best
of English music.
BANGS AND WHITE TEETH.
The odd yet picturesque style of hair dress
ing which has so long prevailed in tho coun
try has been superseded by that of the Amer
ican women, and the f air foreheads of tho
royal ladies are already hidden by the bang so
common in our own country. The fashions,
however, are not set by the empress. Tho
style adopted by the minister's wives is con
sidered quite the proper thing, and, following
their example, all ladies of culture have
dropped the custom of blacking their teeth
and shaving their eyebrows.
"The intellectual progress of the jeople of
Japan," said Mr. Eastlake, "has been almost
unparalleled. Not only has the educational
system been established all over the empire,
but the capital city boasts of a university that
can compare favorably with the best colleges
of the continent. German professors, promi
nent for scientific ability and research, have
filled the chairs in the scientific and medical
departments of the Imperial university, while
in literature, both ancient and modern, Eng
lish and American men of advanced thought
have been chosen as instructors. Recently
the staff of foreign professors has been di
minished and the vacancies filled by Japan-,
ese literati who have returned from study
"Tho works of Huxley, Spencer, Darwin
and others have been translated into Japan
ese, and are familiar handbooks to students in
Japan, The promulgators of Christianity
find that they have a proud skepticism to con
tend with. The Japanese talk of the 'evolu
tion of sjies' and tho nebular hypothesis as
glibly as our learned men. Buddhism is still
the predominating faith, but Christianity is
rapidly establishing itself among the more
intellectual classes, although many of the
high officials express extreme bitterness to the
doctrine and its introduction. This bitterness
is so great that to profess Christianity means
the loss of an official position. The i)eople
are not conservative, however, and it is only
a question of time when the Christian faith
will he accepted throughout the country. In
all tho large cities public schools are main
tained, and it is compulsory that after attain
ing a certain age children shall bo sent to
school. In Tokio there are two large law
schools, one of which is conducted in the
French and the other in the English language.
Added to these is an engineering college, with
its library of over 20,000 volumes and its ex
tensive laboratories, which have been recently
merged with the Imperial college.
THE EMPEROR S PROMISES.
"Political affairs are not behind in the on
ward march of civilization, and the chief ex
citement of the country now is the prepara
tion for tho national assembly promised for
1800. Tho ground is already purchased and
the assembly buildings commenced, although
there is naturally some misapprehension on
the part of suspicious minds that the govern
ment may not carry out its promises to the
people. As it now stands, the government is
in the hands of the emperor, assisted by .the
senate and house of lords, which in Japanese
is called 'Gen-ro-in.' The national assembly
will le composed of representatives elected
by the people from the various districts into
which the' country is divided, thus making
the empire a partial republic. Laws regard
ing press criticism and public speech are very
stringent, and in neither is criticism of the
government allowed. Regarding Japan's re
lations with America I am able to speak at
length. My visit to this country is in the in
terest of an extension of the mercantile
traffic. The United States and its people are
regarded with great respect by the Japanese,
and in their eyes, as The Jiji Shimpo, one of
the leading journals, expresses it, 'America
stands out m the world hke a blossomiu
plum branch among a thicket of brambles,
diffusing a rich fragrance and compelling the
admiration of all for her great name and
"America is Japan's largest customer in a
commercial way, while, on the other hand,
none of the staple products of the United
States, except kerosene, find their way to
"The railroads of Japan are constantly be
ing extended and there are now six com
panies, embracing about 700 miles of road.
These are equipped with Eng'sh locomo
tives, cars and rails, but Germany is making
every effort to secure this trade, and a con
tract has recently been awarded to German
firms for furnishing the rails for eight years.
You would be suiprised to see American
street cars rolling along tho streets of Tokio,
but there are many of them, and these with
the jinrikishu, or pullman cars, are the prin
cipal public conveyances. The latter may lie
hired for seventy-five cents a day, and" the
street cars carry passengers for a moderate
charge, ranging from two to eight cents, ac
cording to the distance traveled." San Fran
Girls at the Seaside.
I have carefully looked around me for
some of those fair maids of the shore you
read of in correspondence. But up to date
none have arrived. The average girl wears
canvas shoes rusted by the brine, an old seer
sucker dress, a hat mashed down on the south
side, mashed up on the north, bruised, bent,
broken and maltreated on the other two
sides, and she digs a hole in the sand, falls
into it, puts on blue glasses and fights flies
and reads dime novels. There is nothin

SLUMMING" IN LONDON.
About the "Jolliest" Dissipation Known
to the Fashionable 'World.
"There is one English fashion which the
Anglo-maniacs have not yet succeeded in in
troducing in New York," said the European
buyer of a large silk house a few days ago,
"and that is slumming. In London, visiting
the slums is believed to be about the jolliest
and most fetching dissipation known to the
world. The subject has been the butt of the
comic weekly artists of London for some
months now, and no well-regulated member
of society can afford to miss a slvirnming
party during the season. -
"They do it up in great shape over there,
you know. An Englishman must dress for
every expedition, no matter whether it is a
trip to Aliica or a walk to the corner. In
slumming women run to cloaks and men to
long coats. These outer garments are be
lieved to ward off disease, though exactly how
they do it when the wearers breathe tho foul
air of tho slums is difficult to imagine. When
they return to the house of their hostess or
chaperone the young people all' throw off
these wraps in the passage, and the wraps are
aired by the servants and returned by mes
sc :cr the following day. A supper, more or
less- elal orate, follows the 'slum,' as the excite
ment makes all hands hungry and talkative.
There are always two policemen with the
party, and, as a rule, not more than five or
six people go along. London tramps are lia
ble to prove surly and ill-teinpercd when
their homes are invaded.
"The party starts from the hostess' house in
carriages at 11 o'clock or perhaps midnight,
although that is pretty late, and drive to the
heart of tho London slums. Here they
wander through the quarters of the poor, the
outcast and the lost ones of the great town,
pushing their way into rooms Where drunken
louts, repulsive women and scraggy and un
kempt children lie sleeping like so many
worms in a bait box. They go everywhere,
for the police do not recognize the rights of
any of the paupers, and bang their way ruth
lessly ahead. The high born men and women
gaze upon their dirty fellow creatures, visit
their opium dens, their thinking places, dance
halls or, rather, cellars and invade their
living rooms. When they've had all their
stomachs and eyes will stand they return to
their supper. It never ocelli's to them, of
course, that the cost of one such meal as they
discuss would lift a mountain of misery and
woo from tho backs of the poor they have
just visited. Plulanthropy is not a proper
fad now across the water.
Ts there no slumming in New York?"
"Oh, occasionally parties of men send down
to police headquarters and secure the services
of a detective for a trip through Baxter, Mul
berry and Mott streets; but slumming is not
recognized as a fashionable amusement."
New York Sun.
Visit to New York Chinatown.
My first visit to our New York Chinatown
fascinated me, and I have since been there
many times, and I like the Chinese. They
are clean, respectful and wonderfully polite".
The much vaunted politeness of the French
man is nowhere besides the genuine com-tesj'
of the Chinese. Of course they have their
vices. They are inveterate gamblers, and
opium is everywhere. Almost every Chiua
man owns his own "lay out," and the smell of
the burning drug is in every house. But I
don't know that it is asy worse than our much
more frequent whisky bottle. It does not
certainly engender so many fights, and when
a Chinaman does fight he does not do much
damage, unless he uses a knife. In this, as in
everything else, the Chinaman is a creature of
The Chinese manner of fighting is to grab
each other's pigtail with tho left and hammer
away with the right; when he tackles a short-
haired man he is nowhere; his left hand goes
clawing wildly around tho back of his oppo
nent s head, and failing to catch the pigtail,
he seems not to know what to do with his
right. "When we remember that it is the
very lowest class of Chinese which have come
to this couutrj', it is remarkable how well
they behave. One custom, however, gives
an insight into the Chinaman's character.
Confucius said: "Whosoever giveth a cup of
tea to him who asks hath done a good act,
which shall be remembered in the time of
trouble." No charge is made for tea in the
restaurants and in the barber's shop, the
grocery stores, the gambling houses, and the
opium dens. A pot of tea stands always
ready for any who choose to drmk. Allan

Goats for the Duiry.
In England they now have a special breed
of goats for the dairy, and an association
has been formed, the best animals registered
in a flock book, and a general improvement
determined on. In fact, an illustration of a
celebrated dairy goat, recently appearing in
an English paper, showed such a capacity of
udder as to compare favorably with some
cows now in our dailies. And why should
not the goat be given a useful place among
our domestic animals? If it can be so im
proved as to give large quantities of milk, it
will largely contribute to the assistance oi
those who have no facilities for keeping a
cow, while their prolificacy will place them
within tho reach of all.

An Interview With John Morrissey.
Georjre Alfred Townsend once told me how
ho succeeded in obtaining from Morrissey a
sketch of his life, which the latter declared
was the best ever published. One evenins;
Townsend visited tho club and engaged Mr.
Morrissey in general conversation. After a
few minutes in the house a stroll was taken
in the grounds and the gentlemen ' seated
themselves in a summer house lighted by a
single gas jet. Little by little the events in
the life of the ex-pugilist and ex-congressman
were skillfully drawn out, and, unob
served by him, dates, etc, were noted by the
interviewer on his cuffs. A short time alter,
aided by his wonderful memory, Mr. Town-
send wove together a sketch that was pub
lished in a western paper, and Mr. Morrissey
pronounced it correct and the smartest trick
ever played on him by a newspaper man.

Mr. Conkllng and His Practice.
Mr. Conklinr pays no attention to politics.
He rarelv converses on political topics with
vpti his most intimate friends. His thoughts
are concentrated on the practice of his pro
fession, and he is rapidly accumulating a
fortune. Ho is the pink of neatness, but he
is neither extensive nor extravagant in his
tastes and habits. I never saw him in a cab,
and have seen him only once in a horse car.
He usually walks to his office and from there
to the court room. Not long ago I saw him
rush into a beer saloon, draik toaming lager,
