GLAUS SPRECKELS & CO., BANKERS. VThy tlie United States Treasury Officials Object A Late 7ecision. The iastime of painting United State treasury notes has lately received a setback. A iointed hint has gone out from the treas ury department that if persons of artistic tate want to test their skill in this line they must not exhibit their work in public. This is the meaning of a decision by Solicitor Mc Cue, the full effect of which was not made plain in the brief abstract given out. The decision was based on a New York case, where a fac-simile of a $5 note painted on wood was exhibited hi a well known saloon. A secret service agent suggested that the painting was too suggestive of counterfeit ing to be kept open to the public gaze and Luuld be removed. Chief Brooks took substantially the same view. The owner of the "picture and the artist who painted it made affidavits that no vio lation of the law was intended. The solici tor of the treasurjr accepted this as a state ment of the facts, but declared he could not sanction any encroachment upon the statute made for the protection of United States securities. Sec. 5,430, among other things, provides that "every person who prints, photographs, or in any other manner makes or executes or causes to be printed, photo graphed, made or executed, or aids in print ing, photographing, making or executing any engraving, photograph, print or impres sion in the likeness of any such obligation or security, or any part thereof, shall be pun ished." AVhile under the circumstances the solicitor would not advise prosecution, he suggested quite plainly that the exercise of a talent so capable of mischief should not be encouraged. The artist and the owner claimed the panel paiuting of the greenback w as worth $."i00, but Chief Brooks estimated its value at $10 or $13. Some time ago a somewhat similar painting by a Washing ton artist was put up at public auction, but it was drawn at the suggestion of the secret service officers. The late decision of the solicitor of the treasury is made for the benetit of people, who think there is no harm in making public exhibitions of these artistic representations of the currency. Some very good counterfeit notes have been painted and passed for money by profes sional . This is the reason why the secret service thinks it necessary to check the efforts of amateurs, since their work might be too suggestive to those who have a talent in that direction and might by such an exam ple be led into the unlawful exercLse of their skill. Chicago Tribune. 'Bucket Shop" Speculation. The grain and stock "bucket shop'' busi ness is rapidly increasing in Chicago, and there are ten of thse blackboard concerns iu the city to-day to one three years ago. Every prominent hotel, almost, rents a first floor room for this purpose, and the vicinity of the Board of Trade is alive with them. "Just now," said an imported New York operator to mc, "the speculators are testing a new scheme to get ahead of the proprfetoi-s of the bucket shops, which isn't so new, either, for it is one that these pro prietors have long been playing on their pa trons. It consists in 'straddling' the market when it gets excited that is, both buying and selling a stock over night, and by los ing one deal gaining enough on the other to more than make up. "If the particular stock dealt in fluctuates wildly, success gt-nerally follows this scheme, but the way that one eastern proprietor, whom I know intimately, gets even with this and all other games playe by his custom ers and grows rich out of them, is by him self creating wild fluctuations so suddenly as to wipeout the margins put up on one side of these deals, and through some freeze out clause in his rules preventing immediate closing of deals between rapid quotations the other side is left stranded, with no ap preciable profit in it. Why," added my informer, "my friend is away stepping mto ; m-,rL-f.t-. arranging: quotations 1 11 CT 1I1U111 iwwiiv . " by sending $100 or $200 in such a way as to knock into ins nanus ium--o of margin which he can see at a glance are backing some particular stock." Chicago Journal. Princes "Who Come Cheap. "Prince" Nicholas of Miugrela demands some consideration as the man who wedded the daughter of Count Adlerberg. But the Adkrbergs are a very "new" family, and the 1 idy i i question had few claims on ad miration. Indeed, she had for years been a tort of "Kntisha," from whom the objects of I er fancy fled in consternation, and it wasconsideied a "happy dispatch" when the ounsr savage from the Caucasus agreed, in coisideratiou of a round sum of ready caL. to make her his wife and not seek to bo divon-od form her for a year, me ou gain was consummated, but the year had not long beeu elapsed when the couple sepa rated forever. Now he has squandered all the marriage portion more properly, bribe and all the 730,000 for which he sold his alleged princesbip, and is now heels over head in debt, so that he would naturally like to get a job in reigning over a country which he could squeeze for his own gam. "Princes" in Jlingrelia, by the way, come very cheap. There are whole tribes com posed of Nothing but "princes" and "prm cesss." A goodly proportion of them get a living by highway robbery, though some are sufficiently regal iu tasto to seek clerk ships in mercantile offices. Chicago Her ald.
