Synopsis of the Treasury Rep ort Es ti- mated Receipts and Expenditures For the Ensuing; Tear Report of fhm Secretary of the Mary. The Treasury. Washtxston, Dec 8. The annual re port of the secretary of the-treasury shows that the government revenues from all sources during- the past fiscal year were $435,888,259 and the total ex penditures $415,953,806, leaving' a surplus of $9,014, 451 With the cash balance, the national bank redemption fund and a few small items added, this surplus was $40,750,468, which was applied to the redemption of bonds and the national bank notes. As compared with the fiscal year 1891, the receipts in 1892 have fallen off $32,675,971 The principal losses were customs receipts $42,069,241 and profits on coinage $3,-681,479, but there was a grain of $8,284,-823 in internal revenue receipts and of $4,998,690 in sales of District of Columbia bonds. In the ordinary expenditures. there was a decrease of $10,349,354, which is accounted for by diminished payments for discount taxes, refund of excessive customs, drawbacks, census, quartermaster's supplies and interest on the publio debt, the decrease in the last item alone being $14,169,019. Dunns the present fiscal year the rev enues are estimated as follows: From customs, $198,000,000; from internal revenues, $165,000,000; from miscellaneous sources, $20,000,000; from postal service, $80,336,850.44; total, $463,336,350.44. The expenditures for the same period are estimated as follows: For the civil es tablishment, $108,000,000; for the military establishment, $49,000,000; for the naval establishment, $31,000,000; for the Indian service, $9,000,000; for pensions, $158,000,000; for interest on the publio debt, $26,000,000; for postal service. $80,336,350.44; total, $461,336,350.44. This will leave an estimated surplus for the year of $2,000,000. The available cash balance in the treasury at the end of the present fiscal year is stated at $120,992,377. The revenues for the fiscal year 1894 are esti mated at $490,121,365 and the appropriations required $457,261,355, exclusive of the sinking fund or an estimated surplus of. $32, 860, 030, which with the cash balance and gold reserve will make the available balance $53,852,407. and deducting accrued or accruing obligations (mail contracts and redemptions) would leave the balance $47,853,407. Onr Navy. Washington, Dec. 13. Secretary Tracy, in his annual report, sets forth the fact that when the present administration came in, March, 1889, besides old and obsolete wooden ships only three modern war vessels were in commission. During the administration nineteen new vessels, with an aggregate tonnage of 54,833 tons, mounting two 12-inch, six 10-inch, sixteen 8-inch and eighty-two 6-inch guns, have been added, all of which, with the exception of five of the earliest, have been manufactured in this country. Three new steel tugs have also been constructed and wnt, in service. There THE OFFICIAL VOTE.

M. TILLSON In process of construction elgnteen vessels, certain to be completed, should i armor be completed within tta next year, of aggregate tonnage of 83,399 tons and mounting; altogether twelve 13-inch, six 12-inch, sixteen 10-inch, thirty 8-inch, thirty-two 6-inch, thirty- eiht 5-inch and thirty-four. 4-inch guns, all of which have been of are to be manufactured in this country. Development the past four years has not been confined to ships alone. At the beginning of this administration, says the secretary, the naval establishment was entirely destitute of certain elements of efficiency, each one of which was indispensable to its practical employment as a fighting force, and the absence of which, even II it had been possessed of a hundred ships, would still have left it in a condition of paralysis. These were armor, tor pedoes, heavy rapid firing guns, armor-piercing shell, smokeless powder and high explosives. The secretary details at length the noteworthy progress in the production of these things, and says the progress noted, by which the United States has emerged from its condition of helpless ness at sea, and by the employment of its own resources has distanced its most experienced competitors, marks an epoch in the naval development, not only of this country, but of the world. Delay in delivery of armor bag caused final completion of armored vessels under construction to be somewhat later than at first contemplated. The only compensation for this delay is the superior quality of armor that has been recently developed. In connection witn the development of nickel steel for armor, the department has undertaken a series of experimenta in the application of this material t other purposes of construction which promise no less important results than those already obtained. Bobbers Rented. iBOSeATE, Va., Dec 14. Last night as the Chesapeake ox unio vesuouie train was pulling out of Huntington, W. Va.. about 11 o'clock four masked men, each with two revolvers, appeared in the coaches and called on the passen frers to throw up their hands, Two of the passengers seized one of the robbers and attempted to disarm him.

The Bomber et applications that are oa ale awaiting veeenoiea mere than equals the number et inmates Hum any imperatively dictates that the state should no longer delay te fully provide far all this class.

The law provides that upon arriving at the age of 31, the inmates shall be returned to the oounUes whence they came. Inasmuch as this, to many, only means the oounty poor bouse, with all its degrading Influences, provision should be made at this asylum for the proper custody of adult Idiots endiinbeciles, and the statutes should be so amended that adults belonging to these classes may be sent to this institution. Many are able, with proper supervision, to perform considerable physical labor, and as the land now owned by the state consists of only forty acres, and that of poor quality, more land should be purchased, that they may net only be removed from the demoralizing effects of Idleness, but in part made to oon tribute to the support of the Institution.

The Idea that was quite prevalent at the time of the erection of this institution, that the es tablishment thereof was unwise and unneces sary, is controverted by the fact mat tne in stitution is filled with girls many of whom would, without the reformatory in fluence of the school, become outcasts, Ma ti.t r ihur who have gradu ated appear to have reformed and become fitted to fill honorable and respectable positions la life.

Washjsotoh, Dee, 14. In the senate yesterday the joint resolution for the appointment of a commission to make an agreement with the five civilized tribes of Indians for allotanent of their lands in severalty, and for opening the Indian territory te settlement, was discussed during the. morning hour, and then went over without action. The anti-option bill was taken up, and the rest of the day's session was occupied by Mr. tjeorge, of Mississippi, in advocacy s v. az He Holds That the Unlawful Kntry of a Chinaman Is Political astd Not Criminal Offense Railroad Mileage at the Country. Chin a belealesfa Kxw Oblkans, Deo. 12. Judge rJJ-' ward C Billings, in the United States circuit court, quashed the indictments against several Chinese for violating the exclusion act, and defined the pow ers of. the government officials. Said he, is brief: The statute relied upon by the prosecuting oftloer is found in the fourth section of the set Of congress ot May 5, 1892. That statute, aa it seems to me, deals with the coming in of Chi nese aa a police matter, and is the re-enacting and constituting of what might be termed a quarantine against Chinese. They are treated as would be infected merchandise and the im prisonment is not a punishment for a orlme. bnt a means of keeping a damaging Individual safely until he can be sent away. In a summary manner and as a political matter, this oomlng in is to be pre vented. This matter Is dealt with as po litical and not orimlnaL The words used are those which are ordinarily found In criminal statutes, but the intent ot congress is, and it seems to be unmistakable, that what is termed being convicted and adjudged, means "found." "decided," by the commissioner representing sot the criminal law, but the political depart- ment of the government. After the lawful pree- 1 ence of the alien is determined, he must be seat back to his oountry by the treasury depart. ment at Washington. To prevent an unreasonable snd possibly oppressive detention it must be within one year. Meanwhile he must be kept from entering the community of the people Of the United States, and, therefore, he is te be Imprisoned and to prevent expense to the gov ernment and -as a sanitary matter he is to be made to work. This, it seems to me, is the moaning of the clause relied upon to authorize trial and punishment for a crime There is nothing in the statute declar ing that it shall be crime or a misdemeanor for a Chinese to eome into the oountry. The unlawfulness is not made the basis of criminal procedure or detention, but rather is made the warrant to send him back. The imprisonment spoken of In the statute is that which is neces sary to effectuate his return. It seems to me that sootion 4 deals with the proceedings before the commissioner conducting an examination, which is political and not criminal, and amounts to a direction to him snd to the authorities who . .. conduct the transportation or removal back Vf - China, wbt his twofold: (1) that a Chinese ad-Judged to Ive re unlawfully shall be removed within a year (2) that till removal he shall be kept in prison and made to work. In accordance with these views I must direct that this indict ment be quashed and that the defendant be re manded to the cis tod v of the commissioner to be dealt with according to law. " Railway Mileage. Wabhixgtow, Dec 12. The fourth statistical report of the inter-state commerce commission, prepared by its statistician, Mr. Case, which has just been submitted, gives a complete epitome of railroad progress in the United States for the period covered. The report shows that the casualties during the year were greater than in any previous year covered by reports to the commission. The cumber killed during the year was 7,029, and the number injured was 83,831. Of these totals, the number of employes killed was 2,000 and the number injured was 20,14a The number of passengers killed was S93 and the number injured 2,973. This report emphasizes more strong ly than previous reports the necessity of legislation compelling railways to adopt train brakes and automatic couplers, and also suggests that some stepSp- US taken. bnidM the tutopuon 01 mis train brake to prevent the frequency of casualties from falling from trains and engines. The large number killed and Injured from collisions also brings prominently into notice the necessity of some extensive use of the block system in the handling of trains and a more perfect application of the principle of personal responsibility in the case of accidents. An investigation into the matter of handling trains is rec ommended. It is recommended that express com panies and water carriers engaged in inter-state traffic be required to make reports to the inter-state commerce commission similar to those now made by railways, and that persons, com panies or corporations owning rolling stock used in inter-state traffic should be obliged to make annual reports so far as may be necessary for a complete statement of the kind of rolling stock used by railways. LUCKY CHICAGO. A Munificent Donation to the City From F. D. Armour. Chicago, Dec. 14. Philip D. Armour, the millionaire packer, started last night for New York on his way to Europe, leaving behind him a Christ' ntas gift of over 11,500,000 to the city of Chicago.
