The excess of expenditures over colpls in tlic Treasury for the mouth ot July was ?i:),125,790.G7, and yet UK. ailtivltiistnttion Democrate say the tarilt Is uot an i.ssuc, and request tlio Ilopub •lleati niaiiaKcrs to Icive it out oC rhis yoar's canipnlgn,'Th'm Is tlio largest monthly deficit tliat has occurred umlei any tariff law. The receipts for. July were ouly i?4(l, 000 in excess of Hie rccol-pts for (lit same mouth of 1SO">, but the cxpeudl nires wore nearly $4.000,000 more. Thin Indicates thnt many payments that should littve been made before the close of'the last fiscal year were held back 'in order to make A belter showing for tho year and keep'the deficit clown somewhere near, the amount that flic Secretary .of the Treasury had guessed at. At the beglnn-ins o£ Uila month a prediction was made by some of the Treasury ofllclals that the deficit would uot exceed that of July one year nso. A comparison of the records that the excess of expenditures over receipts £01 the mouth Just passed was i?3,(!47,42-l more uliau.lt was one year DRO. WORSE THAN A YEAR AGO. The deficit for the mouth or July I was .fO,478,3r,C, and according to the Treasury statements there was a larger Interest payment made In July a year ago than there .was in tue present month. The receipts from customs duties have fallen oft very perceptibly, while those from Internal revenue have Increased somewhat. In July, 1893, the reports from customs amounted to ?14,07(J,08-1. For the same'.mouth thte year'Hie receipts from flic same course wore $12,15.7,330, thus showing a decrease lu customs' receipts under 'the operations of the Wilson-Gor- man'tariff law of $1,919,054, as compared with the same period last year. One year ago the receipts from tlic internal revenue were J?12,8D5,40r>, while for July oC this year they were $14,302, 532 showing an Increase ot $1,404,127. This- condition of- affairs does not bring: much encouragement to those Democrats who were hoping and pre- dicting'that the-i'p'resent tariff law would eventually 'bring In sufficient .revenue to meet the expenses oC the Government. .The prospects are for large expendituresjdurlng August, as the sugar bounty has not all been paid, .ami the receipts from various sources arc not likely to Increase. This .enormous deficit of over $13,000,000 for the month o£ July is considered by Republicans at headquarters as proof thnt a. .revision of' the tariff Is needed, nnd that It refutes the declaration by ihe Democrats Hint tariff to not an issue hls'.year. It Is not only the general Government •that Is suffering under the operation of tho tariff law, but letters are received dally at headquarters here, showing that business has been Injured In all sections of the country. There Is a very large.demand for tariff literature, nnd In many Congresulonnl districts the fight will be engaged on that.

Their Sadden RufaMl to Work CROiet - Consternation to tbe rmienueri— .-Tho Accident to the Ureat Loadoo r«rrU Wheel. Few of the thousimda of pereons who each day use elevators ever stop to think what would result if, for some reason, the machinery ehould suddenly cease to vtbrk nnd on elfi'vutor remain high up in •the «haft,-with its occupants as securely iknprlaoned n» if locked in the city prison. Su«h accidents arc,-however, not at all uncommon. The cosmopolitan citizen of New York is, as a rule, too busy to give such trivial matters n second thought, always provided heia not among the'unfortuna'te individuals who happen to be detained in a car. Such on accident recently occurred to .i.nnag'er Oscar Hominerstein, who was taking a party of.-friends through his- theater, music ball and, roof garden. It was late at uife'ht, and almoste^ei-ybody hod left the theater.!. .'Mr. Hammerstein, after telling his friends of the.beautiea of the'ncw roof garden, sugge'eted that they go up and see'it."

While the fun was at its beJg-ht the big wheel suddenly stopped. From 8:30 o'clock in the evening until one o'clock the following afternoon it remained stationary, and some of the experiences of its passengers were decidedly uncomfortable. . Every effort was put forth to make the- prisoners as comfortable as possible. Few of the women in. the' cars were provided with wraps suitable to the exposure at an altitude of 300 feet, and many suffered accordingly. Two of tbo attendants clambered around the rim of the wheel, carraiOfjf with them ropes, by means of which. 1 baskets. of provisions were drawn, up. The occupants of one of the cars, however, were tbe first to secure communication with terra fl ram, the result of an. Ingenious thought of Miss P. Lansdale, of Chester terrace. Thia young -woman possessed a reel of cotton, and carefully lowering it from the window of the car in which she was imprisoned, n stout string was attached. This, upon being drawn up, brought a rope, to which was attached a basket containing light refreshments.—N. Y. Journal. A FRUIT EXCHANGE. California Oiowtti H»TB Foncd a TM- ful Or(anlt«tton. Each local exchange has its own packing house and is responsible for the packing and shipping of its own fruit; it atao receives direct returns for iu own shipment* hence a loss in one exchange -does not affect the revenues of another exchange, unless it be the rosult of a default on the part of a purchaser or from on effort to protect, the'interesf of the entire exchange uys-i* tern. The expenses of the general management are borne pro rata by each exchange. The system is a perfect one, a circle within a circle. The modus operand! istbis: ' -An order «omes from an enstcrn market direct to the state exihange hend- Ktsi ujreufc iv uic 3Lm«. bAvuu"^- -. quarters nt Los Angeles. That order, goods to sell in less tliau 30 days. . if large enough, is divided among th ten'tiistrict exchanges. Each district exchange redivides its own orderamoni; its local exchanges. The superintendent of the local exchange notilies-ench local grower how many and what kinds of fruit to deliver to the exchange packing: house, proportioning the order to the size of the various orchards thot belong to the exchange. The grower then fills the assigned cumber of "field" boxes (so palled to distinguish them from packed boxes) ami delivers them to the parking house. There his responsibility ends. As the fruit is delivered it is carefully weifh^J. und studied by itself, then passed .1 hrough the'"(j-radfr.". where the "culls""(dnmatfed fruit) are thrown oui .nnd'the oning-cs of various sizes distributed in dirTi-rejit bins from which they are wmppo/j aixl packed. The culls are sold to iooul dealers for'about 25 cc.ntH a bf>x. Th«?y are not spoiled fruit by, any' means, but ha-vc perhaps icwt their short green stems or have a smii!) bleni-. (sh on- the rind. The culling proows is extremely thorough, for the exchange !• very exacting as to the quality and appearance of its. 'product. After packing, the 'fruit is again weighed aod scientifically planed In refrigerator cars. (A practical suggestion to buyers—always "heft" an orange.) As o rule the fruit i« consigned tc a representative in the cast, who either receives it or directs its destination whfle en route.—Ch'autnuquan.
