FROM WASHINGTON CITV.
Secretary Carlisle has begun the reor

A number of clerks have already been

Much interest has been aroused among
statisticians by the discovery that the
llgures of the balance of trade against
this country for the fiscal year ending
June 'M last, as shown by the record of
the bureau of statistics of the Treasury
Department, were aliout MO.OOO.OOO out
of the way. Instead of an adverse bal
ance of f!i!!,000,000 tin; corrected returns
have shown only about $50,000,000.
Special Supervising Agent Tingle says
that the. Treasury Department is doing
all it can w ith the money on hand for
the enforcement of the Geary exclusion

into the wholesale tleiiortation of Chi

left to pay the special agents and other

says that officers of the government are
at present engaged in gathering infor

gally here, and that the Treasury intends
to enforce the law.
The reiKirt of Chinese Insi.octor Scharf
on his investigation of the fraudulent
entry of ("hinese at the ortof New York
has wit-n received at the Ireasury De
partment. No rejiort from Collector
Hendricks as to Inspector Scharf's alle
gation of collusion by New Y'ork officials
in yet received. It is alleged in Wash
ington City that the customs officers at
New York have Ix'en extremely lax in
issuing Chinese certificates, and that
w henever the Treasury agents or inspect
ors have undertaken to investigate mat-
tars 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
alfairs, it is said, exists in other cities,
where the customs olhcers seem to think
the Treasury agents have no right to in
vestigate their acts.
So far as the State Department is in

secure protection on application to the

the case with the French residents. The
commercial interestsof the United States
in Siam are insignilicant, the exports
being very few and the imports being
made up of teak wood, used in ship

It is said at the Navy Department that
Admiral Harmony's recent retirement,
for which the department has been crit
icised, was in strict accordance with his
written request. He cabled the depart
ment from Hongkong March 13, asking
to I ortleretl home and retired uimjii his
arrival in the United States. lie sug
gested June 7 as the most convenient
date for his departure. In a letter of
March he after asking for detachment
said: " Upon my arrival in the United
tates, which fact I will report bv tele
graph, I ask that I may be placed on the
retirett list, as authorized by tlie statute,
having served over forty years continu
ously in the navvof the United States."
April 24 the President approved the ap
plication, to take effect upon the Admi
ral's arrival iu the United States, which
was June 26, as reported bv 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 be
retired June 20, but it was impossible to
change the date, as the order had already
been issued and was mailed to him.
Although up to the present time there
have been nearly 6,000, 000 paid admis
sions to the World's Fair, the officials
are disappointed in the attendance. The
most sanguine exposition experts say
that under the most favorable conditions
the total attendance cannot reach 20,
000,000. Before the exposition opened
the officials thought the attendance
would reach 30,000,000.
When completed, the Yerkes tele

Chairman Thatcher of the executive
committee of the bureau of awards,
speaking of the system of awards, said :
"The bureau nas liuenneu irom tne
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 of Congress reouiring the
bureau to disclose to the world the prog

sciences. The commercial side of the
awards question sinks into insignificance
wlieji 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
woulcf there have been?"

American Women Who Trvel.
Somebody was saying other day
that women who travel :a railway traius
are often not so careful as they should
i about speaking to strangers, particu
larly Strang" men. "Strange men" has
a dreadful sound, and it might be said of
the comment in general that probably
women, like men, are oftennotsowi.se
as they should be. In regard to railway
travel and its resulting acquaintances, it
is notable that Americans are much
freer in their traveling habits than
foreigners, a fact which testifies very in
terestingly to the greater social safety of
our public conveyances.
'In England or France," says an Amer
ican lady, "men seldom oiler to help a
woman who may lie traveling in a rail
way carriage, not because they are less
willing to extend the courtesy of reach
ing a satchel or anything of that kind,
but because they would be very likely to
get a freezing look and the cold shoulder.
Continental women cf respectability feel
themselves obliged to wear a panoply of
reserve that sometimes seems amusing
to an American Ul' course- the reason
is that our socbiy is a purer society and
one in which women have a bi tter status.
This American freedom undoubtedly be
gets many abuses. Women of the
utmost respectability not only exchange
words with men they have never seen
before, but often do not hesitate to
'strike up an acquaintance.'" New
