. THE PRESERVATION OF PROPERTY.
It has been correctly stated that tho manage
ment ot any estate, be It either real or personal,
requires as much'tact and ability as Is required
to accumulate It. There may bo come differ
ence ot opinion about this, but the great an
noyance experienced In making Investments
nnd taking care ot properly has led largely to
the organization ot trust companies.
The Wnehlngton Loan and Trust Company
Is building tbo splendid new building nl the
corner of Ninth and F streets northwest. It Is
built ot granite and is fireproof and lias all
modern conveniences. It is first-class In every
paitlcular. It yon arc going to Europe this

atoeks and bonds, attend to the collection ot

doing Is exceedingly moderate and you are
Tlrtually saved all responsibility and annoy

EXECUTIVE MANSION.
The notion of the United States Marahal
nt San Diego, Cal., In seizing the Chilian
steamer Itnta is the result of telegraphic
correspondence between the President,
Secretary Itlninu and Attorney-General
Miller. The lntler has been authorized by
the President to take whatever steps he
deemed necessary to enforce strict com
pliance with the laws of neutrality in case
of Chill, nnd to seize nil vessels found
offending In thai respect within the
jurisdiction of the United Stales.

$522,310.92; from miscellaneous sources,

A certificate was issued to day by the
Comptrcllcr of the Currency authorizing

The Secretary of the Treasury in a.clr
cular letter to customs collectors revokes
all previous ordors allowing drawbacks
on imported sugar used iu the manufac
ture of confectionery or any other article
made for export.
The count of tho assets in the Treasury
is proceeding quite rapidly and satisfac
torily. The coin vaults will bo opened early
next week. The whole sum of moneys
and bonds to be counted amounted, at tiio
beginmg of the Job, to $01 l,511,5S2.32.
A force of young North Carolinians
young ladles nnd young men are em
ployed in the Treasury at this time
making a schedule of the names of those
who aro to be tho liencliciaries when
North Carolina distributes tho direct tax
refunded some days ago. These young
folks came on from their homes, and
draw a per diem pay from thu State
treasury. They seem to enjoy the novelty
of the work greatly.
Tnniit Ixrn:r.STS Iucmicai.. Assistant
Sec retary Spaulding has informed James
Hurt, agent of the American Sugar Re
fining Company, that the interest of the
Government and the company are identi
cal in the proper ami uniform assessment
of duties upon sugar at the several ports,
and that he will be accorded proper fa
cilities nt the several custom houses where
it may not interfere with the business of
lhe olllro or the interest of the revenue 111
obtaining nil information he may desire.
Tiik TmiAH'itv FnoxT. Chief Clerk
Ur.ickclt thinks that Congress would act
wisely to appropriate a sulllcient sum to
remodel and improve the Fifteenth-street
front of tho Treasury Dttilding. Ho re
ports the sandstone material, used on that
face so disintegrated and roughened by
long exposure that it is impossible to
cither clean it or to get a substance that
win cover us unsightly surtace. An euort
will be made during tho next Congress to
effect an appropriation for this work.
Duties o.v Out:. The Treasury ofllcials
have decided to take thu necessary steps
to have the opinion of the General Cus
toms Appraiser reviewed in the case of
Chichester against the Collector at Eagle
Pass, Texas, as totlio ratio of duty charged
on certain silver lead ore imported from
Mexico. The Collector at Kagle Pass has
been instructed to enforce tho require
ments of the regulations and treat as lead
ores all alleged silver ore3 composed of
concentrates from different mines. In
the Chichester case the importer claims
$$7,702 overcharge.
Tin: Toiuico lti:nATi:s. Fp to date
nearly 20,000 tobacco rebate claims have
been filed iu the several bureaus of tho
Treasury Department to be audited. Of
this largo number fully 15,000 have been
settled by the First Comptroller's OHlce in
addition to currying the current work of
the bureau. Tho olliclals and clerks of
that ofllce have labored faithfully In and
out of season to accomplish this great
task. Some of the schedules sent iu rep

A JjAUhui, Max's Ql'kkr Notio.v. A
quiet looking farmer called at Acting
Treasurer "Whclplcy's ofllco this morning
and stated that lie had come to make a
deposit of ISO and wished to hove a draft
issued for $2,000. Ho was asked by tho
Acting Treasurer to exhibit the law for
such 11 transaction when ho insisted t lint
he could do it, that he had been doing
sonic pension business nnd that he had
come across a statute that warranted him
to mortgogo his property to the Govern
ment anil pav SM) interest in advance
on $2,000. Iu vain the half-amused
Treusurcr Insisted that no such a law
existed. Tiio stranger was inex
orable nnd finally drew from his
pocket a roll of greenbacks and tendered
the $S0 to tho olllclal. This was of course
declined ami gradually It began to dawn
on tho stranger that he could not force
the transaction. Ho llnally left tho ofllco
promising to return and exhibit tho stat
ute to Mr. Vholpley "if that," ho said,
"would fetch tho money." Ho was as
sured that evidence of that sort would
fetch it, and ho quietly left tho room. Ho

As no Inconsiderable number of tho
delegates left the city last night, there was
a marked falling off In the attendance at
Albatigh's Theatre this morning when
President Hrlggs called the American
Medical Association to order.
There was no following of the printed
programme. Dr. W. L. Schenck of To
peka, Kans,, was down for an address on
State Medicine, but was absent, and the
subject was passed over.
The report of tho committee on vaccina

ing a celebration of tho centennial year
of the discovery of vaccination by Dr.
Jenner. Replies from twenty-two States
were unanimously In favor of the cele

accepted and the committee continued
for another year.
Dr. Hibbartl offered a resolution, which
was carried after considerable discussion,
that a committee of seven be appointed
to consider and report next year upon the
advisability of the Incorporation of the
association.
The following were reported to servo as
officers of sections: Practice uf medicine,

chairman of the delegation. Hoth gentle
men appropriately acknowledged the

Tho usual resolutions of (hanks for hos
pitality to the people and physicians of
Washington were adopted. Dr. Murcy
of Hoston was introduced and made
a very eloquent little talk, thank
ing his associates for the honor con
ferred upon him and predicting happy
achievements for the association. Dr.
Hricgs, the retiring president, after n
sentence of gratitude and a god speed to
the delegates, put a motion to that effect,
and the association was declared ad
journed without day.
l.ust Night's llvouts.
The delegates to the National Medical
Association had opportunities to interest
themselves in various ways after yester
day's meeting. Tho absorbing topic of
the day had been tho choice of a place for
the next meeting. With that matter dis
posed of, and Detroit selected after a
heated contest, all bickerings vanished
nnd the doctors minded together with
that bonhomie which distinguishes the
profession, renewing the amenities of
brotherly love, which political emergen
cies had but partially disturbed.
All eloors of public places and of many
privato residences were open to the visi
tors. Several hundred took advantage of u
proffered excursion to visit Mount
Vernon.
In the evening nearly all the members
who remained In the city attended the re
ception at the Army and Navy Medical
3Iuseum, which was handsomely deco

he Is going to innke silk so cheap that the

dicate that at least from his conversation,
but he suy.M there is it greater than hint,
his uncle 3toiis:t. The two have lived In
Damascus, having n habitation in the
street that Is called "Straight." There
uncle and nephew have for some years
nuatomicully examined the silkworm,
and have discovered, they assert, that this
valuable caterpillar simply manufactures
the line thread of its cocoon out of the
mulberry leaf. Ellas and 3Iousa Kboitrl
have studied tho matter carefully, and nre
now certain that they can produce tho
real nrticle, silk, without the aid of the
worm. Thero is a vast Held open for the
enterprising Damascene, and it Is his in
tention lo open the attack on tho pamp
ered silk manufacturers of Lyons and
other centres of the industry by starting

A1TEK THE OUTLAW.
THREE MEN-OF-WAR MAY
THE I TATA.
PURSUE
A Stern Chnsc Is a Lone One, However,
nnd the Runaway Has a Clean Pair
of H eels ami Two Days Start of Her
Pnisttcrs.
Tho Navy Department, up to a lato hour
this afternoon, had taken no action look
ing to the recapture of the outlaw trans
port Rata, which escaped from San Diego
with arms fort lie Chilian Insurgents. The
reports Irom San Francisco, which states
that tbo Charleston has been ordered to
chase the Rata, aro denied by both Secre
tary Tracy anil Commodore Ramsey, tho
chief of the Navigation Rttroau. When
asked by Tiik Ciutic-Recouh reporter if
he would endeavor to capture the Itata
Secretary Tracy declined to answer. He
said, "I will simply say that nothing lias
been done in tbo matter as yet."
Naval oflicers, as a rule, do not think
that the Chatleston could overtake the
Itata, as the latter has already beeu two
days at sea, and has probably by this time
covered one-sixth of her distance, or 150
miles. Sho is a fast craft, almost as fast,
indeed, as tho American vessel.
It is understood that the Navy Depart
ment will instruct the commanders of
the Baltimore, Pcnsacoia, and San Fran
cisco, which are now in Chilian waters,
10 capture Iho runaway and return with
her to this country.
Thcrightof tho United States to capture
the Itiita 011 the high seas or in the United
States or Chilian waters is undoubted.
Tho vessel flics the flag of Chili and Is
subject to the only recognized authority
in that country, namely, the government
of which President Dalmaceda is tho
head. The insurgents havo no inter
national status; they are not oven recog
nized as belligerents. Tho Itata, having
entered a port of tho United States, fell
under suspicion of being there to secure
supplies, arms aud ammunition and the
Chilian Minister nt Washington asked for
her detention. Accordingly a United
States marshal was put on board ond her
captain was arrested. The captain was
allowed to return to his ship and ho at
once went to sea.
The Itata is therefore now at sea iu de
fiance of the authorities of both Chili and
(lie United States. She lias no clearance
papers, and is practically an outlaw. Any
nation can capture her. If sho made any
resistance she would he a pirate. If she
entered n port and the United States or
Chili demanded her surrender from the
government of the country tn which the
port belonged, that government would
surrender her.
With theso three cruisers on her track
the Itata is likely to lie overhauled in a
few days and brought back to San Diego,
wncn the uovernment win nave a Knotty
problem to wrestle with. Just whot can
bo done with the vessel and the extent to
which she has violated the laws are ques
tions that the ofllciuls hero decline to ex
press nn opinion upon. The Chilian 3lin
tsternlso maintains a studied silence.
As tho Itata had been seized by the
United States at San Diego sho was tech
nically United States property until dis
charged, and is, therefore, liable to recap
ture on the high seas by a United States
man-of-war or to confiscation if she ever
enters a United States port. So far as is
known Ihereis no chargo of piracy against
either the Itata or the Robert and Minnie.
They are charged with violation of the
neutrality laws, which forbid the litting
out in the United States of vessels of war
upon a country with which the United
States is at peace.
Incidentally tho legal determination of
lhe foice of tliis charge involves tho ques
tion as to whether the Chilian insurgents
are to ho recognised by the United States
(as they hnvo been by Great Ilritaln)as
bellingerents, and to the settlement of
this question the State Department ollle
ials are already applying themselves.

London, May 8. II has leaked out that
considerable perturbation exists In tin?
Foreign Ofllce over the action of tli
United States iusiezlug a vessel of this
Chilian insurgents. The insurrection
from the first lias been favored by Great
Hrltain, and the Dritish Legation at Santi
ago bus nioro than once extended a valu
blc helping hand to tho rebels through the
agency of the Hritish fleet. Under a thin
pretext of surrender tosuperior force Kng
lish merchant vessels have kept Insur
gents iu supplies in return for ample com
pensation, and tho Hritish Government
has presented no protest against such pro
tended and profitable seizures, Lord Salis
bury even going so far as to advise tho
payment of duties exacted by the insur
gents at 1 lie ports held by them, it being:
on these duties that the insurrection de
pends for sustenance.
Therefore, the vigorous action of tho
United States to prevent the revolutionists
from using American ports has caused
almost consternation among the various
Hritish interests that have been support
ing the rebellion. It is said that repre
sentatives of the Congress party haver
gained powerful Influences in their behalf

tain the Dreyfus claim, which Ilnlmaceda
sternly rejected, when presented with thu
Indorsement of the French Government.

A Rome dispatch says that while thu
Italian press protests against the failure:
to prosecute the New Orleans lyncher
the uffair bus ceased to excite serious
public Interest in view of the gravity ot
the situation iu Italy. The stoning of 31.
Jacques, the American, at Florence was;
it appears, tbo act of the worst class, ami
is said to have been incited iu the lirst
place by a beggar, to whoso appeal for
alms 31. Jacques neglected to listen. It
is claimed that tho incident had no mo
tive relating to the massacre at New Or
leans, nnd it is deeply regretted by tho
Florence authorities, whoso city depends
upon American patronage to a great ex
tent for income. Iu Rome Americans go
about entirely unmolested, and It is be
lieved that they are safe in any part of
Italy where other people are safe.

A St. Petersburg dispatch says that llta
Minister of Finance views with great
anxiety the im pending withdrawal of the
Rothschild syndicate from the new loan,
which withdrawal would seriously inter
fere with Russia's plans, not only finan
cially, but also strategctic and economic.
The country is not pressed for funds for
current expenses, the treasury being iu
an unusually healthy condition; bu,t the
Siberian railway and several fortifications
on n gigantic scale near tho German
frontier may be delayed bv the want of
extra funds to carry them em. The Rus

redeemed at par, as the intention was,
until tho new loan is forthcoming.

Is said that the higher military au

and there are circumstances connected
with the Colonel's history that suggest ti
different motive. The Colonel has of lato
been extremely severe in enforcing the
military regulations against spies, and
hardly a day has passed without the ar
rest of some Frenchman for loitering,
around the fortifications, or attempting;
to take photographs of the defences. It
