ENGLANDS NATIONAL DEBT
The Itetliirf Inn Interrupted I the
Kouth Ifrliiin Anr
Klff YORK April 19 The Iondon cor
respondent of the Evening Post his
this to sy regarding the progress of
England s debt
With the new British Government loan
of probablv JEM Ovl near at hand it
will be interesting to recall the past his
tory of the British tie lit In September
lSli when peace was signed at Paris after
Waterloo the debt of Great Britain
amounted to Jl 1 it llfcSlj and was certain
ly the largest debt owed by one nation at
that time No other country has ever
shown such huge indebtedness except
Trance the funded debt of which now ex
ceeds 1 000 millions But In the case of
France It must be remembered that a cer
tain proportion represents outlay s for the
development eif the railway system and
whiili In time will bring some relief to its
treasurv
Fndaunted by the magnitude of the
nmount owed British Parliaments set
themselves to work atter the Peace of
Paris to bring about a reduetlon By
persistent efforts in this direction they
paid off in the succeeding eighty -four
years more debt than aaiy other coun
try in the world excepting the United
States In that period the debt redemp
tion amounted to about Z7t0 0U0 ster
ling and this was effected In spite of i20
tVMiXO being raised in 1S33 G for compen
sating owners of slaves In the colonies
11 OiMOOO In ISIS for the Irish famine and
C3oEfl00ii0 in 155- for the Crimean war
1 ne progress of debt reduction except
by these relatively slight interruptions
was not arrested until the war with the
South African Republics broke out Since
that event issues of debt by the British
Gov eminent hav e been numerous and con
siderable in amount rii ing tho aggre
gate funded and unfunded to by far
the largest total since 1S5S Itrlellv sum
marized the result of these operations
mav be set forth as follows
Natl ml liar loan 30000000
KxihequiT bond ilOOOUOO
Treason hills 130MKX
lloatin debt OTjOW
lotal isxcm
Of these issues the most Important Is
the national war loan which was offered
for subscription at 9 per cent in March
lsflO and the stock of which Is not re
deem ible until 1910 Of the Exchequer
liouds ten millions are redeemable in liUJ
and fourteen millions In 1903 In refer
ence to these Issues It may be remembered
that of the ten millions maturing in 13US
and which were offered last August the
1nlted States took one half by arrange
ment with the Chancellor of the Ex
chequer This course of procedure was
verv unusual on the part of the British
Mlnistrv and so much criticism has cen
tred round the operation that it Is doubt
ful If It will be repeated
The T easury bills are all for short
dates ranging from three to twelve
months but the last few renewals have
been for the longer of these periods The
floating debt consists of sums borrow ed
fiom the Bank of England the Bank of
Irelind and various Government depart
ments such as the National Debt Com
missioners and the sav ings b ink authori
ties Adding these recent debt creations
to the amount previously outstanding we
get a total present debt of the United
Kingdom of 70 millions or more than
double that of the United States The
outlav in connection with the war has
not een wholly covered by these opera
tions and a further large sum will cer
tainly have to be raised within a short
time

The monthly meeting of the Northwest
Citizens Suburban Association was held
last night In Templars Hall Ttnleytown
with C C Ijiicaster President of the
association presiding and John W Chap
pell acting as secretary Although but
few of the members attended the meeting
owing to the inclemency of the weather
resolutions of great importance to the
citizens of Tenleytown and that vicinity
were Introduced and adopted
The first resolution was Introduced by
Imiis P Shoemaker Chairman of the
Executive Committee of the association
asking that the Commissioners of the Dis
trict of Columbl i he calleel upon by a
committee from the association anil re
quested to notiry the presiding oillcer or
the association before acting upon any
complaints or grievances of a general
public character over which the associa
tion exercises Its intluence The resolu
tion in conclusion says
This request is made for the purpose
of ascertaining the sentiment of -our peo
ple and also to assist the Commissioners
In the performance of their duties The
resolution was adopted unanimously
Mr Shoemaker acting In the capacity
of Chairman of the Executive Committee
also lntroduceel a resolution which was
later adopted asking that the efforts of
all members of the Northwest Citizens
Association be exercised to encourage the
establishment of manufacturing and busi
ness enterprises In certain portions of the
District of Columbia and that public sen
timent so far as possible be Invoked to
accomplish this result The resolution In
part is as follows
We firmly believe that manufacturing
and business undertakings should be en
couraged In the District not only to at
tract business men capital and enter
prise but to IncrcHse our population fur
nish adequate employment for our young
folks who are annually graduating from
the public schools and encourage others
to reside here Also to utilize Consider
able territory along our river front in
South and East Washington along the
railroad lines to causo the construction
of bulldlrgs and thereby greatly augment
our taxable values and annual revenues
and by such action the city of Washing
ton in our opinion would become a
larger and more important city in every
respect
Another resolution presented by Mr
Shoemaker asked the members of tire asso
ciation to do all in their power to remind
Congress of the fact that the extension
aC streets in the northwest section of the
city especially In the vicinity of Rock
Creek and the Zoological Pars is a great I
necessity ine resolution was adopted and

association that a copy of the same be

has power to appoint a man of his own
selection to be stationkeeper
In the opinion of Mr Boothe the mayor
has a right to detail a policeman to col
lect licenses and he quotes the last sec
tion of the ordinances of the city council
Imposing taxes on persons etc which
especially provide for It In reply to the
second qucstlun Mr Beothe Is of the opin
ion that the commissioners have power
to reopen such cases and he quotes Judge
James Keiths opinion when the same
question was submitted to him by the
counsel of a former mayor His reply to
the last query which Is considered the
most Important of all Is ns follows-
In reply to this eiucstion I would say
that the mayor Is the chief executive offi
cer or the city and that It Is his eluty
to see that the laws of the State anel the
ordinances of the city- arc faithfully exe
cuted hence although the board of
police commissioners has power under
the city Charter to prescribe rules and
regulation for the police force these
rules and regulations must not lie such
as will prevent or hinder the proper en
forcement of the State or city laws and
It would Of course be against the letter
and the spirit of the law to place an
officer st the statlonhouse who would be
Incapable of attending to the duties of
such a position Subject to this eiuallllca
tlon however I am of the opinion that
the li lnl of police commissioners has
power to- prescribe rules for the placing
of men at the statlonhouse

THE MOONSHINER A WOMAN
A Surprising Discovery seT lurk
Revenue Onlclnls
NEW YORK April 19 -On the third
floor of a dirtv ramshackle tenement in
the East Side tod ly the Internal revenue
officers of this district discovered a moon
shine still owned and run by a woman
She had six children and the whole place
showed traces of such abject poverty that
Commissioner Shields and Col Frank G
Thompson the head agent ot the revenue
service decided that It would be unjust
to hold the woman In custody and she
was released on her promise to appear be
fore the Commissioner tomorrow morning
The still was at 62 Division Street Just
why Colonel Thompson had reason to le
lleve that It was there he is not willing
to tell but he went to the place this at
ternoon with two of his deputies nnd
smashing In a door found the whole ap
paratus There were six tlfty -gallon hogs
heads full of sugar and urlder the bed In
the corner of the room were two complete
copper stills and all their attachments
They were capable of an extreme produc
tion of 1C0 gallons at a distillation The
whisky sells ordinarily at 1W a gallon
There was no one In the apartment when
the officers brpke In but after two hours
a prepossessing woman about forty years
old enteresl She had a brown shawl over
her head and a bright red waist and re
girdcd the strangers In her homo with
mingled Indignation and fear
Whats the matter she asked tho
Janitor In German
You ought to know he replied
The woman stepped back out of the door
and closed It
Who was that woman asked Colonel
Thompson
That woman repealed the Janitor
grinning why shes the woman youre
after
Colonel Thompson ran out Into the hall
but the woman was nowhero In sight
He ran Into Division Street and saw a wo
man In a brown shawl running toward the
river He caught her in the middle of
the block When she felt his haml on her
shoulder she stopped short and glared
nt him
Now you have me she said what
will you do
Colonel Thompson led her back to the
tenement She told him frankly there that
the still was hers and said very simply
that she ran it to support herself and her
six children She was Annie Kappaport
a widow she said She had Just one loaf
of bread and a piece of meat In the house
The woman said she got the still and
the apparatus from two cousins of hers
who had a still In Brooklyn for a year or
more and left It to her when they went
abroad I ist March
The woman promised Commissioner
Shields to come before him tomorrow after
she had arranged for the care of her chil
