Since January 1 nearly 200 national banks have closed their doors, against less than fifty during the same period last year; five have been United States depositories. New Yorkers have begun to write to their daily papers asking that the city be protected from cable cars, complain ing that the lives of citizens are "in constant jeopardy."

Eleven hundred commercial organiza tions throughout the country have been invited by the New York Board of Trade ami Transportation to send delegates to a convention which is to meet in Wash ington on or about September 1. John B.

Several men sus- Eected of complicity in the lynching ava been arrested. FROM WASHINGTON CITV. Secretary Carlisle has begun the reor ganization of the Treasury Department. A number of clerks have already been dropped and others reduced as far as possible under the civil service rules. 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 law. He claims that, if the t'jO.000 available July 1 should he broken into immediately for the purpose of entering into the wholesale tleiiortation of Chi nese, very S'fon there would be nothing left to pay the special agents and other ofliccrs of the Treasury engaged in keep ing the Chinese out of this country. lit! says that officers 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 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 formed, there are no American citizens residing in Siam except missionaries. It is not believed to be necessary to take any special measures for their protection. J he tinted Mates lias no representative in Mam, and tlie l onsui-i teneral at Bangkok, Mr. Bovd, is in this countrvat present, leaving the ollice in charge of his son, the Vice-Consul. If the welfare of our missionaries should be threatened. which is unlikely, thev can without doubt secure protection on application to the Minister ot some other nation, as will he 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 building, and some trifles of Oriental and Malavnesian decorative work. 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. CHICAGO EXPOSITION. 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 scope, which has been donated to the University of Chicago, will be the larg est in the world. The mounting of the telescope is now being put together in the manufactures building. The square iron pier supporting the tube was put in place in tlie norm end ot Columbia ave nue last May. It was about thirty feet in height, in four sections. The tube was in five sections, which together are sixty-four feet in length and weigh six tons. The head and axis weigh thirty tons. 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 ress made iu the arts, industries and 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?"

The population of Rio tie Janeiro is 100,Oi)O. Revolution is rejiortcd in Santa Cath arina in Brazil. Mrs. Rangtrv meditates another Amer ican tour next winter. Great Britain received 10,0.17,600 let ters from America last year. Mine. Patti has made her last appear ance in Ixmdon until next May. The protracted drought in Austria has caused a failure in the oats crop. Sarah Bernhardt has become lessee of the Renaissance Theater in Paris. The hay crop in England and Wales is not more than a third of the average. China refuses to make reparation for the killing of Swedish missionaries by mobs. The flesh-eating balioon is fast becom ing an intolerable nuisance in South Africa. A lively controversy has been going on in Austria concerning the necessity of dueling. There are more deaths annually from hydrophobia in Sweden than in any other country. A ton of gold recently taken from the South African mines was on exhibition at Pretoria lately. The extreme and protracted hot weather in France promises one of the finest vintages on record. The wheat crop of France is estimated at 2xo,(kmj,uou bushels and the imports required for next year at 50,000,000. F'ruit growers will be interested to learn that a fruit-culture exhibition is to be held at St. Petersburg next year. The new British cruiser Endymion at a recent eight hours' trial oil Portsmouth, Kngland, attained a speed of 20.0 knots per hour. Baden-Baden intends to become a grand sporting center in hopes of reviv ing its former attractions for visitors of all nations. It is believed the House of Lords will reject the Irish home-rule bill after it passes the Commons by an overwhelm ing majority. Influenza is believed to lie dying out in London after being more or less prev alent since the first outbreak over the world several years ago. Russian crop prospects have greatly improved. A fairly large yield is now expected especially of rye, the chief breadstuff of the nation. The Duke of Westminster has spent over 1, 000,000 in rebuilding Eaton Hall, which is now considered to rival Chats worth as England's finest house. Princess Eulalia has sent a fine Toledo saber to General Horace Porter in recog nition of his kindness while Chairman of the reception committee in New York. It is officially denied that the Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar recently sought to bring aliout a reconciliation between the German Emperor and Prince Bis marck. Mr. Gladstone gave the Princess May and the Duke of York as a wedding pres ent the seven volumes of his somewhat solidly written "Gleanings of Past Years." The Italian torpedo gunboat Aretusa, a vessel of 846 tons displacement, re cently built at Leghorn, attained a max imum speed of twenty-one knots in her steam trial. The Duke of Veragua is willing to re ceive American sympathy for nis de pleted exchequer, and he will accept all the funds the people in this country will raise for him. The experiment of providing canteens in factories, at which workmen can get good food at something less than cost price, appears to have been a failure in South Germany. In France compulsory education is rig orously applied to all classes, and vet 7 per cent of the young men who wish to join the army are rejected because unable to read or write. Several fashionable ladies have ap peared in London driving with a femi nine handmaiden instead of a footman behind them, the handmaiden arrayed in livery and buttons. In the government of Kazan at the present time a great competition is go ing on among chemists in the sale of charms, which are supposed to act as a preventive against cholera. Emperor William has ordered no army maneuvers to be held anywhere in Ger many unless it is absolutely certain that the district in which it is proposed to hold them will not be damaged. Mormonism has taken a considerable hold in New Zealand, mainly among the Maoris, the latest statistics showing the sect to have 3,176 members in New Zea land, of whom 2:12 are Europeans. The Irish revolutionists claim that the sinking of the Victoria was not due to Admiral Tryon's mistake, but to the members of the revolutionary party who aided in bringing about the disaster. A law is to be promulgated in Russia this summer prohibiting the transfer of land in the possession of rural commu nities or individual peasants to persons not belonging to the rural population.

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 York Recorder Arrested for Selling P.riinilieil Peaches. A peculiar case of innocent violation of the revenue laws has developed in Decatur F. S. Fos bought a quantity of imported brandied peaches. He took them to Cerro Gordo and sold them at his restaurant. Jacob Leslie's boy be came intoxicated on the peaches, and this started quite a run on the peaches. Fox had to order a fresh supply. Mr. Leslie had Fox arrested for violation of the liquor law, and the trial will take place at Cerro Gordo. A Decatur chem ist analyzed the peaches, and found that oue bottle contained 37 per cent, of al cohol (Jor. Chicago Tribune. Made a Fortune Kasily. Captain D. S.

Boston Newft There is no other work in the world of which so many copies are printed annu ally as of tho Chinese almanac. The number is estimated at several millions.
