'•i ^ Y *' OOtLSOllOS OP TflB tSOOMB TAX, • Department Han Prepared Regulations to Carry the New I*w Into Bf« feat—House Piuses Three Appropriation Bills and Dlseusse* Pendons—New Kan- Sat Postmasters. WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.—The house banking and currency committee continued its hearing Thursday. There waa a bare majority of the committee present. Letters were read from W. N. Dana, editor of The Commercial and Financial Chronicle, and from R. B. Ferris, vice president of the Bank- of New York. . Chairman Springer read a letter from A. B, Hepburn of New York, ex^comptroller of tho currency and one of the advocates of the Baltimore plan. Mr, Hepburn wrote as follows: "Of course, Mr. Carlisle's provisions requiring banks taking out circulation to deposit greenbacks and treasury notes Is made in tho interest of relieving the government and not for the, benefit of a currency issue. I do not know that I have any objection to this. I would like to see any safe Course pursued which would relieve the government of its embarrassment. /It is by no means an unmixed blessing to its banks, the retirement of the government from the banking business. While it would benefit the government and the people u a whole, it would certainly, put added responsibilities upon the banks. "I am strongly opposed to the proposition,to do away with the requirements that the banks keep reserves, and my understanding of the law does not tally with that of the secretary. The law when it was drafted, as I understand it, was based upon the experience of prudent and well managed banks and tho reserve was fixed at a point where prudent and well meaning banks carried their reserve. It,was Bought to fix a limit BO a well managed bank ,would as often be over as under thd reserve in the regular course of business. This law is made not for -he nine banks who would observe it without any legal provislons,but for the lOthi that through incompetent, speculative or unsafe management might fail to keep a proper reserve and to keep its finances sufficiently strong to meel the demand that might be made upon it. The statement which the secretary makes that the state banks kept 20 per cent reserve, whereas the national banks keep only 18, I do not think is well founded." Mr. Hepburn also criticized the. repeal of the 10 per cent tax on state banknotes while leaving a tax on national bank notes; also the forbidding of national banks to issue notes for less than $10. The safety fund should also be equally compulsory; state banks should be required to keep tho some reserve. The suction of the Carlisle bill-which provides for imposing the 10 per cent tax in case,the bank does not satisfy the secretory and comptroller, ho thinks would be of little account, the Imposition of a tax after a bunk had failed would only aggravate and complicate matters. He thinks state banks designed to take out circulation should become national banks in fact. He closes by saying: "The secretary's discussion of .the financial question in general, I most cordially approve •nd the conclusions he roaches I believe •re wise and sound, but the details of the bill he has submitted, in my judgment are open to serious criticism." COLLECTION OF INCOME TAX. Treasury Department Baa Prepared Regulations to Enforce the Law. WASHINGTON, Deo. 14.—Secretary Car' lisle has approved the regulations for the enforcement of the collection of the income tax under the late tariff act.

ST. Louis, Dec, 14.—"That's his handwriting; that's It. Its too bad he could not disguise it as he did his name," these were the words spoken in an excited manner in the Lindell hotel rotunda. The speaker was a flashing blonde, a beautiful woman about HO years of age, who was pouring over the hotel register. The name that attracted her attention was that of H. Bauer and wife, of Omaha, Neb., which appeared upon tha register under the date of Sept. 29. She said tho man registered there was her runaway husband. To Cashier Granel she told her story: "My husband left me in the early part of September, as I supposed, to go on the road for some business purpose, fie soon neglected to write me, however, and I learned, after diligent inquiry, that he was living at Kansas City with some woman who I have reason to believe was the same person with him here. I went to Kansas City, but could not find him. I next heard he was at Jeffersgn City, Mo., and went there in search of him. I had my friends everywhere looking out for him, and received information that he had been seen at the Union station, St. Louis, on Sept. #0. I had heard him speak of the Lindell hotel as being St. Louis' headquarters for commercial travelers and came here. That is his handwriting there. I could tell it anywhere. Ohl If I could only find them." She hesitated about giving her name. "Well; I'm a MM. Simpson, bnt don't want anything made public about this." After Mrs. Simoson's departure it was learned from Mr. Granel that the Mr. Bauer, the alleged husband of the so- called Mrs. Simpson, and his alleged •wife had remained at the hotel two days and had left, intending to go to Chicago. The mysterious visitor at the Lindell is supposed to- be no other than Ida R. Notaen, a teacher at the Windsor school, Omaha, who disappeared from that city lost Saturday afternoon, taking with her two children. The story from Omaha is to the effect that Mr. Noteou had left Mrs, Noteen several years ago; that recently she hod received information as to his whereabouts and the supposition is that she had gone in search «f him. Th,e description of Mrs. Nofceu and the alleged Mrs. Simpson tally. Interesting Damage Salt.'

On the latter an entiro village of natives was • recently carried nto the sea, the loss of life being estimated at 60 to 75 men, women and children, while in others of the group atnlities are also reported. A layer of ashes from two to six inches deep covers ;he once fertile fields. .At Epi on Nov. 'J ;here was a severe earthquake in the early morning, which opened a volcano on the west side of Ambrym and on the lext day the whole island trembled, Since then it has opened in five or six different places. Even the island of Epi, wh'ch waa much less affected, had up to Nov. 7 felt Oa distinct shocks and for weeks had seen covered by clouds of ashes and smoke. Traders and planters living on Ambrym island have fled precipitately to Port Sandwich (Mulicolli), the nearest port, in many cases abandoning all their possessions. Owing to tho lateness of the disasters, details were not available when the Wairimoo left the southern seas, although natives from all the volcanic islands were flocking to the centers of civilization for safety.

He declares that the case should be appealed. It now remains for the legislature to make an appropriation for this purpose Which it ia believed -will be done. After discussing the testimony of the railroad officials in the case, showing the earnings and expenses in the state, the report anya: It wof* argued by all parties that the Deduction of rates as fixed by the law was ZV/ t per cent on an average. After deducting %i% per cent from the net proQts over and above the cost of transportation, as indicated by the figures, it is impossible for me to uutlerfltand how the companies would not bo making money suffi-. cicut, ufter the lowering of local freight rates to the rates fixed by law. It does not appear that; the eminent judge who wrote the opinion had in mind or considered the testimony of the auditors and accountant!) of the railway companies whose statements are referred to. The opinion of the court leaves wholly undetermined the basis upon which a computation shall be made of what may be considered a reasonable or unreasonable rate. It occurs to me that when a court undertakes to say to a state that certain railway rates established by it are unreasonable it should advise the state of some rule by which reasonable rates may 1 be determined. The opinion of the court leaves undetermined the long agitated question whether the fictitious capitalization of these corporations should be added to the real value? of the property in determining the valuation upon whic.u railway companies shall be permitted to earn incomes. There ore many other questions of interest which, added to these already mentioned, induce mo to believe that these questions ought to be prosecuted until they reach a court of last resort, if so much bo necessary, in order to establish .the rights of the state. I further suggest that I have faith that the state has been right in this litigation, and that it will be ultimately successful. To this end I am prepared to take steps to prosecute ah appeal, and shall prosecute the same to the end, if it shall meet with tho approval of the legislature. Not a Commercial Rotlng Agency.
