Done by the Secret Service of tha treaiurr Depnrttnent. WA8ritNoTo», Nor. aa,—William P Hazen, chief of the secret service of thi treasury department, in his annual re port shows that during the year the tola number of arrests made was 087, nearly all of which were for violations of th< statutes relating to counterfeiting United States money. Of these arrestec about 800 were either convicted o: pleaded guilty, 139 are now awaiting the action of grand juries. The fines collected amounted to $5,907. The . . amount of altered or counterfeiting notes of the gold reserve, rendering necessary J captured during the year was $81,800 the issne of bends in February was coins, fiu.lBtt. There were also cap canoed chiefly by the depletion of the tured 184 plates from which counterfei 1 treasury, resulting from insufficient rev- notes had been printed* »8 dies, 1B6 2??'« ^he proceeds of this loan. were . molds and a large quantity of mis JBK,OW),000 in gold coin and certiHcates. cellaneons matter consisting of tools but during the month of February there I melting pots, etc. Chief Hazen states were redeemed $19,200,000 of notes in , that the events of the last year furnished gold, presumably to meet subscriptions t evidence of great activity among counter to the loan, so the net proceeds were feiters, the number of arrests reported •bout $ii«,50o,000. This, together with | for counterfeiting both notes and coins • gain of $1,500,000 in gold from ordi-1 largely exceeding that of any previous nary sources, brought np the reserve i year in the history of the service, during the month from (65,000,000 to $100,600,000, while tha net assets of the treasury, with an excess of $7,000,000 of expenditures over receipts for the month, increased from f 125,00(1,000 to $177,000,000. Affected by Deficient Revenues. During succeeding months, till the end of the first week in August, the reserve was affected by deficient revenues •nd withdrawals of gold for export, movement abroad having been stimulated by the necessity which the treasury was under of furnishing ro exporters new full weight after the supply of old pieces had become exhausted. The lowest point touched by tho resetve was New Japanese Treaty. WASHINGTON, Nor. 28.—There is good reason to believe that Secretary Gresham and Minister Kurino have added the finishing touches to the treaty between the United Spates and Japan and that thi document now awaits only the ratiflca tion of the senate and of the Japan government. The new treaty 1 abolishes after about five years, the system of con sular court jurisdiction which has been BO obnoxious to Japan and also treats ol commerce and trade relations. K*(er For the New Bond*. WASHINGTON, Nov. 28.—The only withdrawals of gold Thursday from the - «• - " " T»«wuv»«,«m«.M3 v*» £\SAVA JU*4U4PUt*y IIUIU bUC $52,118,000, on August 7, 1894. Prior to ' subtreasury at New York was fSO.OOC July, 1M>2, the gold reserve was but little affected by withdrawals of coin, there never having been any considerable demand for the redemption* of notes. Even when gold exports were heavy the metal was furnished by bankers from their vaults or was obtained from the treasury for gold certificates, of course without Impairment to the reserve. During the last two years, however, the treasury baa been called upon to furnish nearly the whole of the requirement* for exportation and there have recently been considerable withdrawals for other uses. To' the end of September the total redemption of United States notes in gold since the redemption of specie payments were |18\, 800,000 and the total redemption of the treasury notes in gold from their first issue were ftm,000,«)DO. Two. Important Krenta. The two important events of the year affecting that condition of the public debt were the issne of |5l),(KtO,uOO of 5 per cent bonds to replenish the i{old re- aerv* and the stoppage of the purchase of silver bullion by tha issue of the treasury notes. With reference to tke retirement of treasury notes the treasurer says that prior to August, 181)8, the treasury had boon able to provide for the redemption of treasury note) in" silver dollars oat of the holdings of free silver. On the Sd of that month, however, tha silver dollars and bullion in the treasury had become reduced to the amount required by law for tha payment of outstanding treasury notes and cortlflcates and ^t he demand for tb« redemption of notes continuing, it became necessary to draw upou the dollars coined especially for that purpose. The silver fund being thus impaired, the notes so redeemed were cancelled in order to preserve the required equality between the silver in the treasury and the notes outstanding. The total amount of the notes retired ia this way up to Oct. 81 waaH,W,434. The amount of the new issues ot United States paper currency pot into circulation during the year was (U&O,- WV.i&O, having been exceeded but once, in 1SP3, The amount of worn und mutilated notes redeemed waa f!UV,Oi>9,- WO, This also has be»n exceuuud but once, in IBUi).

He said: "During tho next two years this conn- try needs the help of every man who has the slightest morsel of triUU in his possession. Why do I insist on this? Because the stream cannot rise higher than the source. If we had an obsolute despotic monarch could we hope for laws which would be better than he KhewT Who is our ruler? The sovereign people of the United States, more despotic than any monarch that ever sat on a tbroua. Now is it possible to have laws more sensible than the people are? We have won a mighty victory, the greatest in the history of our country. H wasjron, not by our organization, but b'y Our principles. But, great as our victory la, there is a greater one which We must win.

Grand Army K,ectarar Is Donouaoed tu a Fraud by» De* AJoluei Clergyman. DES MOINES, Nov. aa.—A big row has been kicked up in Grand Army circles over the charges made by Rev. C. E. Cline," Methodist Episcopal minister of Highland Park, a suburb of this city, against Ralph O. Bates, a lecturer who has spoken in nearly all western status during the Ia»t three years upon the subject: "From Audersonville to the White House." He charges that Bates was not a member of the Ninth Ohio cavalry aa claim- ad, was never in the army at all; was never captured at Cumberland Gap and taken to Andersonville, and that he is getting a fraudulent pension and is an sill round bad man. Bates had jusl finished delivering a series of lectures here under the auspices of the Kinsman post, and was headed for Omaha to deliver a series when the charges were made. Assistant Adjutant General Longley of the Iowa d^imrtment writes a letter in which he r -n-.s Bates ia a fraud, and has been denounced by the Oregon department in IHU1 while it was in session at Astoria. Bates is now in the east gathering evidence to prove his record, and the case will be tried before the post Saturday night. His private secretary, O. W.

( Municipal Mlnrnle a Great Daoncv to Our form of GoTernment, WASHINGTON, NOT. 22,— John W, Goff, the prosecuting attorney for the Lexow investigating committee, who it stop' ping in Washington for a few dayj, has given The Evening Star an interesting interview on the Work of the committee. "We know positively," said he, "the police department of New York was systematically blackmailing all classes of citizens. I speak within the Ixrauds of my knowledge when I say there was not a business man in New York city who had not felt the power of police blackmail. There were, perhaps a very • few instances where honorable men had refused to give their tithes of illegal tax to the police, bnt .almost without exception these men were forced out of business. One peculiar feature of the blackmail was that it spaved no one class, however obscnre its calling. Yon may be ant- prised when I say New York, nnder th» mle of the police department aa it was * controlled by Tammany, was far worse as regards the individual comfort ot citizens than St. Petersburg nnder its moat violent police regime. Dlffloultle* the Committee Met. "As an illustration of the tremendous power wielded by this organization I will refer to the difficulty we had in obtaining witnesses to go upon the stand and swear to facts they had brought to . us in private. At first this applied to all classes, both reputable and disreputable. When appealed to they would claim if they should testify the police wonld bound them out of the city. When asked if they could not go elsewhere and establish themselves in business, they wonld reply the persecution of the police of New York wonld follow them to every city in the country and we gradually revealed the astounding fact that the police of New York not only dominated every city but every large community in the country. The lower classes of citizens were made to believe blackmail was lawfnl and regular. They came to con- aider the captain of their precinct aa the source of all municipal authority. In effect he was such to them, Centralization th* D»ufer of the Day. "Yon ask 1110 U I think this power ia now crushed. I do, most emphatically. ^ I think that the public conscience having} * once been aroused, the machinery of this nauseous system exposed will be a perpetual bar against the development of •noh an organization in the future. I consider the great danger to oar form of government lies in the possibility ol municipal misrule. The tendency ia too strongly toward the growth of tho urban community at the expense of the rural. This feeds the machine &at, if not watched and checked, will grow to such corrupting influence as that which we have just destroyed in New York. Centralization, I believe, as this investigation has proved, is the danger of the. day. "I cannot answer the question as to where the blackmail money went, or ia what proportions it was distributed, for that is a nersoual matter, which would force me to moution names. There an still many y.ointa to investigate and * fTMt deal of ronuding op — finishing up M it were. We will try to finish tha work by Jan. I." , . _ ____-- _ . drain Coognm Begin* Work.
