No class of people in "Washington has
done more to feather the Shylocks' nests
than the government clerks.
The abuse of usurious interest charged
these people was once upon a time a
scaudal, but oven at this lato day there
are victims unnumbered of the good-natured
fellows who will givo you $90
cash and wait a whole month to collect
your $100, take out $10. and do the
same thing for you next month, as you
will be just $10 behind in your accounts.
If you get $200 they will let you have
$180, and so on in proportion to your
In the good old days of this kind of
highway robbery it was an easy Job, and
Shylocks were Shylocks. It was the priv
ilege then that a clerk could give an
order on the disbursing officer for his
salary, made payable to KIchard Roe, John
Doe or Jay Gould.
And this was very necessary the month
after the country clerk came to learn to
live like city folks. The first thing he
usually did was to get a city girl or two,
according to the divisibility of a bucolic
heart, and then came the Shylock into the
Theyoung fellow foundfromanotheryoung
fellow of lust year's crop that he could get ,
all the money lie wanted by the very simple
process of "an order on the cashier," which
sounded mighty hlg to a man who used to
get $25 a mouth and ills washing in a
country store. All the money he wanted,
of course, meant less 10 per cent, and if he
was an absolute stranger $5 for a friendly
endorser, who was usually another Shy
lock. Gentlemen Shylocks did not scruple at
placing advertisements in the newspapers
that clerks could be furnished in this way,
aud the Shylocks got as fat as rice birds
on a Southern plautatiou. Some people
in high places in "Washington are credited
with fortunes made in this way, while
the ex-clerks, whose girls are now hap
pily married perhaps to the Shylock ge
nus aro again hoeing corn or following
an acrobatic mule up the hillsides of
their native county.
The departmental Shylock boom col
lapsed under a Republican administra
tion, when a fiat went forth that orders
on the disbursing officer were no longer
receivable. Banks that had been in this
blood-sucking business went out of ex
istence, and tho Shylock went to study
ing up a still practicable schemo. ,
Although tho money changers were
driven out of the various granite temples,
ostensibly some of them are there yet, and
it is said to be a most remarkable thing
that the fellows who have money to lend
can hold their places through every admin
istration. A talk was had with several
clerks in the departments yesterday and
whilo they all agreed that the bottom had
dropped out of Shylockism, there were a
few still in the business. Said one
"Oh, you don't expect me to Equeal, do
you? I would much rather continue to bo
squeezed. As between tquealing and
squeezing I remain a squeezed. I don't
suppose you'd believe it, but the man who
did one of the biggest businesses of that
kind here was a colored man, who occupied
one of the most menial positions in the
gift of the government.
"He held his place Just as long as he
wanted it. He was a Democrat and a Re
publican in turns, and I believe he could,
if the occasion demanded it, prove that he
was a Caucasian."
"Are there any loans made now at big in
terest?" "Yes, but everybody can't get them. If
the old rule were in force, you could draw
your pay three months in advance from one
of these fellows for a money consideration;
say $30 for three months pay at $100 a
month; thatls 120 percent ayear."
"And you can't do that now?"
"Oh, yes; what I mean is that 1 can't. It
is not every body who will b; indulged by the
sharks Some men aie in to deep that they
can't get out and it is a safe thing to in
dulge them as long as they hold ornce and
it is pretty well known who will be the
elect. Of course, you know the lender runs
some risk.
"If hchasadvancedthreemoutbs'payand
the clerk is dismissed during the first month
of indebtedness, all of the advance is lost,
unless the Shylock chooses to travel to
Louisiana or Texas to prosecute the
claim. They are usually, however, aban
dnetl and charged to profit aud loss.
"Arc there any money lenders in this
department now?"
"Only two, but, as I tell you, they
know whom to deal with, and that there
will be no kicking. None of their friends
will do the baby act. They are perfectly
safe from official supervision. No orders
nre recognized by the officers, and there
tho matter ends. For instance, if I were
to say to an officer, 'This man charged
me $10 per month on $100,' the officer
would probably say, 'Then, why don't
you get It in some place else at 6 per
cent, or 'What are you borrowing money
for anyhow?' "
The same story is told In all the depart
ments. The Shylocks are in the cellar or
on the ground floor and only those who pay
an initiation fee of $10, payable every
mouth, know anything about them.
Even the policemen have a Shylock. There
is at least one man who lends the men money
when they are strapped, and he straps
them tighter by a charge of 5 per cent a
mouth and 2 per cent discount. It is re
ported that his business is perfectly safe,
and that while headquarters knows some
thing about it, there is no specific law to
prevent it. On collecting days people have
noticed bim about the detective bureau.
Here is a case in point. An officer's
son died. The father wanted $15. He
got it from this money lender, but it
cost him $33 before he got out of the
clutches of the Shylock.
There will be something more about
this case and these methods when the
proper time comes.
Dunn Estate Difficulties.
Another turn in the troubled administra
tion of the estate of the late Patrick Dunn
came to notice yesterday in a petition filed
by Cecilia N. Dunn, one of the children,
now of age. She says that Thomas M.
Fields, the attorney who was put in charge
of the minor children's interests, on Feb
ruary 20 received from C. A. Brandenburg
and A. A. Birney $11,583 in securities,
realized upon them $7,866.66, loaned from
thlsmoney $4,057 ontheDunnhomesteadat
No. 508 Sixth street southwest, $3,000
on No. 1 50 1 Yermont avenue and paid $722
to A. A. Ashburn. YetT there remains
unaccounted for $2,904. Mr. Fields, it
is alleged, refuses to account for this re
maining sum. She asks that Mr. Fields be
called upon to state what moneys he has
received from the Dunn estate and what
he has done with it.

Shylocks Preparing to Escape Ex
ecutions. Barrett Found Suddenly That Ho nud
Business in Town mid Yennawlno
Mny Turn TT-n Shortly.
The execution against the Capital Guar
antee Loan Company was to have been
issued yesterday when Mr. O. J. Barrett re
turned to the city. It is not known whether
tho publication of the iutended execution
had anything to do with ifiB reappearance
in tho city. He will remanlu over here
It is inferred, as the execution did not
lssuo yesterday, Uiat a settlement of the
Judgment of Mrs. Messer against the com
pany Is in order and will be made to-day.
The diligence of The Times' attorneys
has placed fourteen other cases against
this concern in shape to be pushed.
The aggregate amount of Judgments, it
obtained will be very heavy and there does
not appear to be much doubt about the
success of the suits, even it no further
testimony is elicited than that.given by
Mrs. Messer.
Whether Uie remaining suits against tho
Barrett Company will be tried depends
on whether the company will stand trial.
It is not thought Uiat even if the com
pany settles all the cases, it will bo any the
loser as to the principal of the notes. For
instance, the judgment of Mrs. Messer is
ouly for $28. U5, iucluding costs. The
unpaid balance on her note is $15, so that
it paid her to assert her rights. She has
of course lost ail the usurious interest sho
paid other than within a year from the"
commencement of the suit.
The difficulty heretofore has been that
the people who owed these bills have been
terrified and terrorized by bailiffs and
constables, and of this there can be no
better proof than the mental condition of
those who go to the bureau of legal advice
to make complin ts. They usually ex
press themselves as utterly helpless, with
out money to help them out of their straits,
and altogether in the power of Uio bailiffs
aud money lenders.
Only recently a lady came to The Times
office in a terrible condition of trepi
dation. She acknowledged her debt
aud said that she had giveu the money
lenders ample proof that she would soon bo
in condition to pay pajt of it They were
inexorable and threatened to put her out
at a certain time next day.
They made some amusing preparations
for a siege which were not necessary, as
Uie threat was only another twist of the
thumbscrew of the bailiff. The officer
of the law did not put in appearance with
his wagon to haul off the fcurniture, but
Uie lady and some lady friends camped
upstairs all day, hung crepe on the door,
and otherwise passed a very disagreeable
They had advertised for boarders. The
bell rang twice in the evening, but the
besieged did not dare to go down, although
they were sate from a bailiff up in the
second story. They believe now that the
gentlemen who rang the bell were looking
for rooms. This case is somewhat different
from tho ordinary usury case.
The Washington Mortgage Company cases
are still in the air on account of the absence
of the defendant, lnittthereissomc reason
to believe that Mr. Yennowlne will return
to tho city before the attachments are
Three new cases have been prepared
against one of the Shylocks who has left
town. It is proposed to issue attachments
in these cases, which the law permits,
when there is foundation for the belief
that the defendant is evading arrest. All
that is necessary for this proceeding is two
affidavits setting forth that belief.
As the matters now stand nothing will
save the usurers from verdicts, attach
ments, executions, etc., except a dis
gorgement, jyhlch is a term not found in
Bouvier's Law Dictionary, but a good
wordin this connection.

TViso "Up to Tricks" Gray Coats

With "Billy" WiS3 In tho box, Gilroy
behind the bat and an Al team In tho
field, tho Washington Light Infantry nine
had everything their own way with the
City Post-office boys in the game at Na
tional Park yesterday arternoon.
Although tho Letter Carrier's rooters
wore out in full force they failed to put
up as good a game as they did Saturday,
for they pluyed at a great disadvantage.
Tho men seemed to be placed badly. The
management put in Rebstock to pitch and
left Hamacher on the bench; Ogle was
out of place at short and Ambrose put up
up a very stiff game. Had cither Ogle
or Hamacher occupied the box and Reb
stock been allowed to play his old posi
tion tho defeat , would undoubtedly have
been les3 pronounced.
Tho Infantry nine played winning ball
from -the very begUiulug, allowing no' 6j-.
portunity for a star play to escape them.
They handled the ball with great akill
and used the stick Vith telling results.
"Billy" Wise pitched a very creditable
game, although his puzzling curves at
times were hit very hard. Gilroy caught
excellently behind the bat, Wiiikleman
played second base like a veteran, and
Lee at short proved an immense success.
Phil Wisner, as usual, covered xhird'base
Jn good style, anfl Manager. House with-
his little Shrine uniform was noticed at
times in the coaching-box.
The Post-officers, with the exception of
a very few, had an "off day." Frank
Ilebstock, the Comedian "Reb" even, had
the blues, and that old familiar voice of
his was not once heard during the game.
Fogarty fell all over himself at third base,
and Hennessy on -one occasion came very
near making a successful attempt at throw
ing the ball from center field over the
grand stand.
