V. jiMiluKton Dancnlioirer Accnxcd of Fnl.p PretcnKn and Lnrccnr. A sensation -was caused ln legal circles Jf-terday by the arrest of Washington Danenhower. a local real estate broker, on the charge of false pretenses and lar ceny, preferred against him by William Hr-urn. of Philadelphia, Pa. The infor i.iation upon which Mr Danenhower a arrested was Issued by the Maryland authorities because the offense ot which he Is accused took place ln that State. The arrest was made on a requisition recelied jesterday morning by Chief Ju.tice Bingham, of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, from Gov. LJujd Lonndes, of Maryland. The warrant was honored, and Deputy Slar ihal Cusicc js sent for Danenhower. v returned immediately to the office of the United States marshal for the Dis trust of Columbia with the deputy. He td accompanied by Ms attorney, I'rank T. Browning, and steps were tak en at once to have him released upon habeas corpus. The matter was called brfore Justice Cole and the hearing was postponed un til Wednesday next at 3 p. m.. Mr. Dan- an.lower glir.B Jl.Ko bond tor his Irturance at teat time. an- Mr. Danenhower stated that the ti.argc against him was due to spite on fie part of Braum. The circumstances which led to the present state ot affairs, lie iald, grew out of a business transac tion between liimself and Braum in re lation to the lease of the Bay Ridge re port. Braum, he bald, came to his office r.t No. Mil F Street nurthwett, and pro cured his nervfces to assist in securing a lt-nse of the Bay KIdge property. For this service he bargained and did pay J1.000. After affairs reached the point that it onlj remained 'for Braum to accept the contract for the lease as prcrlously agreed upon he. weakened and refused to enter into the agreement, and wanted his money refunded. This Danenhower refused to do and Braum Instituted crim inal proceedings to recover It. -V JS T O 3d. I JBl. .

FALLING OFF IN NUMBERS Coniiulfljiloner Powilerly Submit Hl Annual Report to Secretnry nce Recommends Physical Examina tion n a Mun of liorrlns; Unde- Irnble Itinerant Jinny Cecils. The annual report of the Commissioner General of Immigration, T. V. Powderly, has been made to Secretary Gage. The report is for the fiscal year ending June M, 1S38. The figures given In the report show that there was a falling off in the total Immigration, from 230.832 ln 1837. to 223. 293 in the past (iscal year. The report Is very complete and voluminous and some of the statistics giyen are interest ing. Commissioner Powderly makes many strong recommendations. One of these is that every immigrant be given a thorough medical examination and refused admis sion unless physically sound. He also rec ommends that the law be changed so as to require each immigrant to state the exact amount of money in his possession upon landing. An Increase of the head tax is also recommended. A tax of 12 per head, it is claimed, would be reason able and would defray the expense of a large force of physicians to examine the immigrants. During the fiscal jear 153,773 male and 93,32t female Immigrants were admitted at the various ports. This Is a decrease of 2,201 females from the figures of the pre vious year. The excess in male Immi grants presents a more desirable class as those from European countries show an increase of 2,730, and those from AslaUc sources exhibit a decrease of 2.002. The port of New York passed 175,713 immi grants during the year, the next port ln order being Boston, with 12,271. Baltimore passed 10,733. Italy in the Lead. Italy heads tho list In nationality, 33,613 immigrants being entered from that country. Russia proper Is next In order, with 27,221, while Ireland is third, with 23,128. Of the total number from Ireland 13.17G were females, or nearly double the number of males. There were 2,071 Chi nese Immigrants admitted. Of this num ber ten were females. Cuba supplied 1,877 immigrants. The number of Immigrants debarred was 3,023. Of this number 12 were Insane, 25S diseased, 2,251 paupers and 2 convicts. The total amount of money shown by Immigrants was $3,852,077. The number of persons showing 130 or over was 27.G0S. The destination of tke majority of the immigrants were the -Western and South ern States. New York received 91,014. The District of Columbia was given by 259 as their destination. Massachusetts receh ed 23,849, 6,005 of this number coming from Ireland. Illinois receh ed 12,129, while California received 6,311. Pennsyl vania recelved31,093. Twenty-three were bound for tha Klondike. Queer People From Slranco Lands. In the list of occupations 54 actors were entered, 23 of these coming from Japan. One hundred and fifty-three clergymen Immigrated to this country. There- were 12 editors, one of them coming from Japan: 37 lawyers, 18 of them coming from Cuba: 81 physicians, 13 of them from Cuba; 416 engineers, 5 from Turkey; 2,635 mariners, 1,000 of them coming from Italy; 145 printers, S of them from Tur key, and 2 from Japan; 5 bankers. Tho total number of skilled workmen was 33,145. Those with no occupations numbered 90,425. Continuing, the report says: "Although there has been a diminution in the total immigration, yet, ln respect ot their means of immediate self-support, the arrivals for the present year are more desirable, for they exhibited to the ex amining officials J3,852,077, an amount ln excess of" that shown In 'the fiscal year ended June 30. 1897, ot J3W.S36. "The act of March 3, 1893, requires that It an Immigrant is possessed of S30 or less he must state the amount, but it the sum Is over $30 he need not state what it Is. Under thhi law there la no means of as certaining how much money immigrants bring with them to tho-Unlted States, and ln order to obtain exact Information th Clothing Price. Men's Suits.

If thlB Is done it will beknonn Just how much Is added to the wealth of the United States by nrrlvlwj immigrants. "In respect to Illiteracy an examination of the figures respectively for the two years under consideration villi disclose the fact that, while there are some variations as between the arrivals from different countries, the general average Is sub stantially unchanged. The observations advanced, therefore. In the last report of this bureau are equally applicable upon this point to conditions existing during the fiscal 3 ear Just completed. "While no Immigrant should be Judged by the amount of money he possesses, he should be required to pay a head tax much greater than Is now collected, not less than J2. From the fund thus collected -it would be possible to defray the ex penses of a competent corps of physicians to examine Immigrants and to establish ngencles of the immigration bureau at foreign ports from which Immigrants take passage. "If this Is done many worthy persons will be spared the pain and humiliation of being debarred at American ports and the hardship of an ocean voyage averted, while, aboe all else, the health of the community and the Interests of American workmen will be more carefully guarded. A Serious OlmtHcle. "One of the most serious obstacles to an efficient administration of the immi gration laws is the long northern boun dary line between this country and Can ada. The only remedy that suggests It self is the enactment of suitable legis lation by Congress authorizing the Secre tary of -the Treasury to designate certain points along the border separating us from the Dominion to be the sole ports of entry to this country of trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific Immigrants, and of all Canadians who shall not have resided in Canada for at least five years prior to their migration to this country. It would be possible under such a provision to abolish the present official stations on Canadian soil and transfer the officials now so placed to this side of the bounda ry, locating them at such points as the Secretary shall designate, as above stat ed, where buildings could be erected for the accommodation of Immigrants pend ing examination, as at the seaports of the United States. "The foregoing report of receipts and expenditures shows a net balance on hand at the close of the year of J284,S71.05. This amount exhibits a. gain, as compared with the funds on hjmd when the last report was made, of $50,835.15. It also appears that whereas the expenditure for the en forcement of the Immigration laws during the fiscal year ended June 30, 1897, exceed ed the receipts by J42.157.52 for the year Just concluded, there is a surplus above expenses on the same ac count of 182,264.44. The appropriation of $100,000 for the enforcement ot the alien contract labor laws, as appears from the accompanying table of expenses, etc., has sufilced for the year, and a balance re mained amounting to J21,233.35."

Samuel SUCCESSORS "3 f I CHEMISTS IN SESSION. Method of Fertillxliiic the Soli 1JI cnftftcil. The Association of Official Agricultural Chemists held the first day's session of their fifteenth annual contention yester day in the lecture hall of Columbian Uni versity. Both the morning and afternoon meetings -were deoted entirely to scien tific discussions of the experiments made during the year, including the analyzatlon of soil and experiments with different methods and kinds of fertilizers. The association is composed of analyt ical chemists connected with the United States Department of Agriculture and with the various. State and national agri cultural experiment stations throughout the country- About fifty members-of the association were present at the meeting. Tho members of the association have conducted many experiments during the past jear, not only In analyzing soils ln regard to their fertility, but ln methods of preserving them. It was stated that wherever the principles recommended by the association in the treatment ot the soil were adopted and applied, the fertil ity of the soil has been not only main tained but Increased, and, on the other hand, wherever the recommendations of tho association had been disregarded the fertility of the soli has decreased to al most a minimum. The Importance of the work of the asso ciation Is regarded as the fundamental basis of the prosperity of the nation. The agriculturists of the country are kept posted as to the workings of the associa tion by bulletins and by lectures delivered at farmers' Institutes by the members. The early work of the association was confined almost exclusively to analytical methods, but the questions now being con sidered are declared to be most, practical, and the association was congratulated by its president. L. A. Winton, of New Haven, Conn In his opening address, on the progress that has been made. The association was the pioneer In rec ommending potash and ash fertilizers. These methods, however, have met with such good results that International con ferences have been held, and the meth ods recommended are now ln use In Eu rope as well as this country. W. H. Wiley, the secretary of the asso ciation, in addressing the convention, re ferred to the work of studying the forma tion of soils, and declared It to be the most Important ot any subject that the association had before it. The morning session of yesterday's meeting was devoted to a consideration of various fertilizers, and lengthy papers were read on the subject by W. H. Wiley and II. C. Jones. At the afternoon ses sion W. B. Kilgore read a paper on the methods for ascertaining the amount of phosphoric acid in soils; H. Snyder, of Minnesota, described the methods and results of soil analysis, emphasizing par ticularly the possibility of dra ing erro neous conclusions. An invitation was extended, lo Secretary Wilson to address the association, and the committee tendering the imitation reported that the Secretary Would attend one of the meetings today.
