Much interest has been aroused among
statisticians by the discovery that the
ligures of the balance of trade against
this country for the fiscal year ending
June 30 last, as shown by the record of
the bureau of statistics of the Treasury
Department, were about (40,000,000 out
of the way. Instead of an advorse bal
ance of (93,000,000 the corrected returns
have shown only about (60,000,000.
Special Supervising Agent Tingle says
that the Treasury Department is doing
all It can with the money on hand for
the enforcement of the Geary exclusion
law. He claims that, if the (60,000
available July 1 should be broken into
immediately lor the purpose of entering
into the wholesale deportation of Chi
nese very soon there would be nothing
left to pay the special agents and other
officers of the Treasury engaged in keep
ing the Chinese ont of this country. He
says that olficere of the government are
at present engaged in gathering infor
mation as to the Chinese who are ille
gally here, and that the Treasury intends
to enforce the law.
The report of Chinese Inspector Scharf
on his investigation of the fraudulent
entry ol Chinese at the portol New York
has been received at the Treasury De
partment. No report from Collector
Hendricks as to Inspector Scharf's alle
gation of collusion by New York officials
is yet received. It is alleged in Wash
ington City that the customs officers at
New York have been extremely lax in
issuing Chinese certificates, and that
whenever the Treasurv agents or inspect
ors have undertaken to investigate mat
ters they invariably have been given the
cold shoulder. This state of facts is said
to apply to no particular administration.
To some extent the same condition of
affairs, it is said, exists in other cities,
wnere tne customs omcers seem to think
the Treasury agents have no right to in
vestigate their acta.

said: "Upon my arrival in the United
States, which fact I will report by tele

retired list, as authorized by the statute,
having served over forty years continu
ously in the navy of the United Ktates."
April 24 the President approved the ap
plication, to take effect upon the Admi
ral's arrival in the United States, which
was June 28, as reported by the "naval
agent at San Francisco. An order was
accordingly issued placing him on the
retired list. The next day the Admiral
telegraphed his arrival, and asked to lie
retired June 29, bnt it was impossible to
change the date, as the order had already
been issued and was mailed to him.

Chairman Thatcher of the executive
committee of the bureau of awards,
speaking of the system of awards, said:
''The bureau has intended from the
start to cause a most complete and ex
haustive examination to be made of the
exhibits to the end that it might obey
the injunction oi Congress requiring the
bureau to disclose to the world the prog
ress1 made in the arts, industries and
Bcicnces. The commercial side of the
awards question sinks into insignificance
when compared to the instructive side.
To know that John Smith received a
prize for his exhibit tells the world
nothing, What the people want to know
is the specific merit or improvement over
the past disclosed by his exhibit. It
would have been easy enough to adopt
the old-fashioned, meaningless system
of making awards, and then everything
would have been delightfully smooth
sailing, but what educational results
would there have been?"
