The secretary of Hie treasury has
now had ample Urn for the prepara
tion of a reply to the senate inquiry as
to Mr. Cleveland's off-hand reference
to the "comfortable surplus," nnd there
Is no sufllrlent reason why he should

while mors than lid millions of legal

room of the treasury within the Inst
year by the purchase of gold, nearly
every doll.lr of which gold was bought
with Interest beating bonds, mid the In
come of the government was In the
last six months IK millions less than Us
revenues, there Is still only about 63
millions of unappropriated surplus cash
on hand.
Those are plain facts which he could
not controvert if he should try. They
mean that whereas the bonds were
Issued ostensibly to maintain the gold
reserve, the proceeds of their sale were
actually used to maintain n treasury
It would take him but a few minutes
to explain his object in standing off the
debts of the government due in Janu
ary, giving a fictitious appearance of
strength to the nation's cash box.
Then he may easily set at rest the
strong suspicion that exists as to the
holding back of various trust funds
and unavailable balances that cannot
be used for any other purpose than that
to which they have been devoted by
law, for the same dishonest purpose.
There Is a deal of comfort for n troubled
mind In an npen confession.
That Senators dorman and Allison
knew what they were talking about
when they Instituted the inquiry no
body has a doubt, and the longer the re
ply Is withheld the more will Mr. Car

the public that he would even now
cover up tho facts In the case If It were

jected themselves would be to acknowl
edge the failure of their plans for forc
ing the country upon a single gold
standard basis and call for the restora
tion of conditions as they found them
two years ago.
a check ix thi: nit.ux.
What was the occasion of the check
In the gold drain that was experienced
by the treasury last Saturday? Orders
tor more than 5 millions had been filed
In the morning, but before tho close' of
tlid day's business the demands were
countermanded. It was explained by
the Xew York banking firms from
which the orders bad come that the
gold was Intended for shipment, but
that a drop In the price of exchange
was the occasion of the withdrawal of
tho order.
It will bo observed that the sudden
change of front took place immediately
after the sensational developments In
the senate by which It became appar
ent to the whole world that the con
spiracy of the gold ring was at last on
the eve of exposure.
And the further significant fact was
developed tho same day, that there was
a phenomenal revival in the interest of
tho bankers for legal tender notes. More
than -' millions of tills class of the pub
lic currency were drawn out of the
treasury, good yellow gold being paid
In for the same.
There Is much Instruction In all of
these developments If the reader Is dis
posed to turn the subject over In his
It is plain to be seen that the only
danger confronting tho financial con
dition of the public treasury Is from the
money dealers themselves. It Is Just
what the Journal lias been telling Its
readers all along. Those money manip
ulators alone arc materially interested
In the way of gain by the establishment
of a single gold standard of values. Tho
Interests of the people lay on the aide
of bl-metalllsm.
The gold ring of Europe cannot get
along without the aid of the United
States. AVe had none of these money
changers' panlc3 while the credit of Sil
ver was maintained In this country.
Put it back to Its proper place In the
monetary economy of the nation and
tho speculative hauling about of gold
to tho distress of business will soon
At the present moment tho gold Jug
glers are In no llttlo distress of mind
over the outcome of their ill advised
display of greed.
The small-bore critics who arc look
ing for thlng3 to grumble at In the work
of the Republican bouse at Jefferson
City are manifesting a great deal of
concern because tho whole network of
existing laws has not yot been recon
structed. They expected a partisan raid
on the statutes that would go down In
history aa a lesson to future genera
tions to beware of trusting legislation
to other than Democratic hands. But
they have been disappointed,
The first month of the session has
gone by nnd nothing has been done but
to organize the committees, Introduce
bills and prepare for their considera
tion In open session. The committees
have done nothing whatover but take
the mass of bills under ndvlsement nnd
prepare them for the mere formality
of their adoption or rejection when they
shall be reported back. Of course this
Is the real work of the session, but the
small-bore critics would be more highly
edllied If It were rushed through In a
slipshod manner and the bills be
dumped upon tho clerk's desk In n con
fusion of numbers and of verbiage.
As to the proposed legislation for the
publication of elections, there la some
thing mure than partisanship to be
held under consideration. The majority
In the house Is committed to reform In
that direction. The way to reach that
end Is by suber and deliberate consid
eration of all the metbuds piuposed.
There Is no safety In snap Judgment,
and It Is highly creditable to the temper
of the members that there la no appar
ent disposition to unnecessary haste In
the premises. When the measure Is
finally put In shape It will be In strong
contrast to the legislation put through
by the Democracy for the perpetuation
of Democratic rule.
The purpose Is to protect the Voter In
his right to cast a ballot and have It
counted as cast, and to Insure the can

Victor Smith, formerly jesHtent of
Ohio, and a persons! friend or secretary
Chase, was one of the .iistuiblng eletnenis
that made the jtreat secretary's lsl days
in the treasury department turbu.eht and
unhappy. Victor imlth had been appointed
by ttie secretary to the place of collector
of customs t Port Townsend. Washlncion

and in these later days would have been
Called a crank. J. W. r'ehuckers, who was
private secretary to Mr. Chase, ana alsti
his bloKrapher. has spoke of smith as "a
man not very likely to become popular on
the Pacific coast or anywhere else. He
believed In spint rapptnRs. and was an
avowed abolitionist; he whined a great deal
about 'pioftress,' was somewhat arroeant
In manner and Intolerant In speech, and
spee.-iily made himself thoroughly unpopu
lar In his oittce."
While he was collector at Port Townseftd.
writes Noah Brooks In the February Cen
tury, Smith succeeded In InduelnK the go
erument to move the custom house from
that point to another on Puset .-ound.
where he hAd some speculative Interests.
Tt was foolish and hair-brained scheme,
and created a bitter fetdlng among business
men. His new place was named Port An
gelos. There the collector maintained him-.-elf
for a time In a semi-barbaric proprie
torship. It Is related of hltn that he once
United the olllcers of the revenue cutter
Shtibtlck to dine at his house; and the of
tlcer, considering that (he collector of the
port was a hlirh funcilonary. arrayed
themselves In full dres.s with swords, uold
lace and other gorgeous insignia of their
station, and went ashore in state to wait
upon Collector Smith at his mansion, which
was then In an unfinished condition.
In due course of time the collector, as
sisted by his wife, brought out two car
penter's saw-horsr. on which was placed
a board covered with wrapping paper. The
repast, which w.is as simple as any ever
partaken of by the- hermits of olden time,
was then set forth; nnd Smith, taklms
from his pockets three bit! upples. gave
one to each of the three olllcers, with n
small forked stl'k, remarking: "You'll
have to roast your own apples."
I'ur Once i:rn tho Wizard Wio Jic.ill
Prom the Chicago Record
A good (.tory Is told of Herrmann, the
magician. At the las-t matinee performance
of his recent engagement In Chicago he
called for some hoy or young man to come
on the tni;e und assist in the performance
of some tricks. The youth who reniouded
to this invitation was a student from a
military academy. He wore a gray uni
form, with the usual tliort, close tlttlng
Jacket, and wide striped trouser.-.
Herrmann pulled curds out of the young
man's i-leeve. handed him articles which
suddenly vnnlshtd into the air and In oth
er ways, myttltled the youth, to the delight
of the spectators.
As the youns man started to leave the
etnge the mnptelHti said: "By the way,
give me buck thut SI."
"Why. 1 haven't any SI." said the boy.
"Oil. yes you have. What do Juu call
this In here';"
The magician tapped with his hand on
the outside of th trouwis pocket, and there
was a Jingle of silver. "You have $4 in
there," said Herrmann,
"I don't see how that can be. These
are military trousers und haven't any
pockets In ihem."
"Ah, but you have the money In your In
side coat po-kec," eald the magician, nnd
reaching Inside the coat he pulled out the
four bllver dollars.
Only a few people heard the conversation
nnd observed the magician's temporary

A Machine nn the Hydraulic t'rlnrlple, lint
I'slng (III Instead of Water.
The "Listener," of the Boston Evening
Transcript, went the other day to sec a
wonderful machine, a machine which Is
not only a prodigious and terrible piece of
enginery, but an allegory. It l called a
testing machine, and It Is used to ascertain
the resisting power of various materials.
It Is not content with finding out that
a beam of oak, for Instance, will bear
without breaking a pressure on ono spot
of lt'AOOO pounds; the beam must be utterly
ctushed each time the test Is made, and
note must be taken of the exact weight
that lay upon It at the moment of lis rtnal
dissolution. Day after day this great ma
chine heaves and strains Itself, and bears
down with slow and awful force Upon
some lough beam or block of wood; and
whether the timber Is placed flatwise, and
needs, say, but a paltry seventy-live Ions
to crush It, or whether It Is placed end
wise, like n pillar, and will hold up twice
as tutirh weight before It cries out and
give up the ghost, It must yield Just the
same, and surrender Its pitiful, crushed
frame to be photographed and studied
and picked to pieces for Ihe benefit of
science, That li all very Interesting, you
may say, but It Is a mere piece ot brute
machinery: where Is Ihe allegory that you
told us of? That lies In the thing by the
force of which this monstrous pressure I:,
eteiied. It Is oil; nothing but suave, gen
tle, yielding, unresisting oil, the emblem
of softness and agrecableness.
Ther Is a certain' piston In this mechan
ism which, pressing agnlnst n quantity of
oil In a confined apace, forces this
oil against another Iron surface, which In
turn presses forward upon the timber, so
that all this crushing power Is exerted by
the medium of nothing but oil. As you
watch the machine, even In tho most ex
citing moment of the culmination of Its
crushing force, you cannot but be con
scious that It Is the oil Hint Is doing It.
The master stands over his great ma
chine, his pupils grouped about. It lies
down flat on Its great back, like a giant
hraelng his shoulders against ,i rock, to
push with his feet. The thing which ho
Is pushing against is a beam of seasoned
onk, about ten Inches square, and tin.
thing with which he Is pushing Is another
and lengthwise square beam of onk, tho
end of which is directly against the side
of the beam to be crushed. Off at one
side, apparently unconnected with the ma
chine, but In reality connecting with It,
Is an apparatus where there ore lovers,
comparable to the throttle valve of a
locomotive, and a gunge which registers
accurately the pressure that Is being ex
erted. A young man stands nt these levers and
this gauge, und. when the master says,
"Turn on more oil," lie moves . lever, nnd
the pressure il-.es. Seventy thousand
pounds, eighty thousand pounds, It rises
rapidly. The lengthwise beam Is sinking
Itself deep Into the side of the victim tim
ber, but this still holds out bravely. The
pressure rises to ninety thousand a hun
dred thousand. The watchers all gather
around the center of the pressure In antici
pation of the catastrophe; the lengthwise
timber l-t squeezing Into the solid oak of
the other one as one's thumb might be
driven into a piece of cheese.
But still It holds. Little by little the
power Is turned on. The young man ut the
gauge calls "i:o,'10," "130,000," "100,000:"
you hear the snapping of a myriad of
tendons within the beam, nnd all these
sounds Join In n sort of low, buzzing roar
or cry, which suggests an elemental
agony. One hundred nnd sixty thousand
pounds the hnm sinks deeper Into the
flesh of If victim one hundred and sev
enty thousand "Mote oil" calls the mas
ter; and now the crackle rises the length
wise beam Itself begins to crack, and the
other beam, yielding at last, seems to go
to pieces all at once; and when the pres
sure Is removed it Is taken out, twisted,
contorted, liven, pierced, crushed.
It Is a useful service, nfter all, though It
seems but nn. exhibition of the brutality of
mere mechanism, thnt the totting machine
and Its bed of oil has done; for since the
master began the work with It he has
proved that timbers will stand only about
hnlf the weight which the accepted author
ities said they would stand; and by Intro
ducing a more conservative weighting of
wood he has doubtless saved many human
lives from destruction by the collapse of
timbered structures.
Their Difference and Some of (be Secre(sof
Their Manufacture.
From the Chicago Record.
The difference between chocolate nnd co
coa Is simply that cocoa Is chocolate from
which the oil has been extracted. As half
of the cocoa beau Is cocoa butter, the dif
ference Is tonslderable. Cocoa butter Is
used by confectioners, nnd the demand for
It so far exceeds the supply In this country
thut over i.OoO tons of cocoa butter were
Imported Inst year. It Is the cocoa butter
that gives the gloss to the sweet chocolate
cakes sold for eating, for swe-et chocolate
U nothing but a mixture of chocolate, co
coa butter nnd sugar, either with or with
out some flavoring extract, such as vanilla.
To mako cocoa for drinking purposes ihe
cocoa butter mutt be extracted. This Is
done .n various ways, by pressure, liHra
tlon or some chemical process. In tho Chi
cago works the chocolate Is taken from the
grinder and placed In little canvas hags
and then put In a hydraulic press, when,
a pi'essnrn of seventy tons drives tho oil
out of the chocolnte and leaves the cocoa
In fcolld, dry, ollless lumps, which are brok
en with a mallet and taken awuy to be
ground up for further operations. If the
cocoa Is wanted for drinking purposes It I
ground into a flour-like substance and
packed In tin boxe". If for eating or con
fectioners. It Is mixed with the flavoring
compounds In a mixing mill after the sitgnr
nnd flavor have been first thoroughly In
corporated with tho cocoa by passing the
wholo mixture through rolls.
The secret of making chocolate nnd co
coafor each maker has his well guarded
secret Is In the blending of several vari
eties of cocoa beans. Not less than three
kinds and up to half a dozen vnrlotles are
mixed or blended at some stnge of the
process, and here, again a trade seciet Is
guarded, for some mnkcis mix before and
some after grinding, and still others at
other places In the making. It Is this
blending which makes a good or bad cocoa
according to tho taste of tho man who Is
drinking It. In the blending the cocoa
maker shows his nrt and ho keeps the for
mula, locked lu a secret drawer nf his safe
and looks very wise when nnythlng Is said
about "blending." Some chocolates and co
co.is require tempering lu a hot room for a
time, and others ore run Into a cold room,
where the pipes of n refrigerating machine
keep the mercury down to zero, us soon us
tho paste runs out of tlm grinding mills.
Tho familiar chocolate packages, made up
like little bricks united by tlni webs at tho
bottom are made In tins which hold Just a
quarter of a pound of chocolate, For con
fectloners tho chocolate Is made up Into
ten pound loaves,
