Knilril Ills Trouble by Drowning.
Ciut'Ano, .Tan. I. W. A. Hammond,
tlio lato second vice president of tho
defunct Nntional Hank of Illinois,
called on Percy Palmer, his old friend
and confidential adviser, at 8 o'clock
Inst evening and talked gloomily about
his future prospects. Palmer talked
encouragingly to him and about 11
o'clock he went to his home In Evan
stou and about 11:30 retired for thu
night. He nnd his wife had been In
thu habit of sleeping in adjacent rooms.
Early this morning Mrs. Hammond
noticed that tho door connecting tho
two apartments was open, looked Into
the room and found that her husband
wns not there. His night robo hung
over the foot of thu bed and his watch
was on tho table, but his clothes Wcio
nowhere to be found, and he had not
taken his shoes and stockings.
Tho police were notified and soon
found a well-developed trail In tho
form of numerous scrnpi of paper,
which led to the lake. A federal life
saving crew at once began a senrch for
tho body, and at ISiSO o'clock tho
drowned body was found at the foot
of Dempster street pier and taken to
the Evauston police station.
ClIAltOHN OK IHIlKOl'l.AltlTIKH.
Hammond wns the vice president of
the Nntlonnl Hank of Illinois, and was
active in its management, in fact, ho is
said to have been the responsible head,
since President Schneider was too
feeble to do much work and tho largo
loans to the Calumet Electric company,
particularly, and to others, which re
sulted In the closing of tho bank, aro
understood to have been made by him.
Tho first open charges against tho
business Integrity of Hammond were
made only about ten days ago. Then
he wns accused of enacting the charac
ter of n "kitcr." Ho was accused of
deceiving the directors of tho bank
nnd the depositors and deliberately
violating tho national bank law. His
alleged Irregularilles were said to
have begun many years ago, when. It
is alleged, he began to use the money
nnd credit of tho bank in outside spec
ulations. This was dono in such a
manner, It was generally reported,
that not only were tlio directors de
ceived, but tho bank examiners as
well. Even old employes, thoroughly
familiar with tho insido workings,
were said to havo been unaware of
what was going on under their eyes.
When it was openly charged that he
had falsified the bank accounts an in
vestigation iiuggested that the Irregu
larities must have begun nt least four
years ago. At that timo he is said to
havo Interested himself in the now
famous Calumet Eleutric railway. It
is now believed that tho first over
drafts to this railway, amounting to
S175,0()0, were made at that time, when
the comptroller of the currency Imme
diately called for a statement from tlio
bank and Hammond disguised the ir
regularities by deslgnatinir the over
drafts "foreign exchange."
This alleged Irregularity only came
after many years of diligent service in
the institution, the wreck of which
proved disastrous to many. In these
years Hammond saved money, nnd
worked early and late, and tho posi
tion ho came to occupy was the result
of his years of frugality and merit.
Some of his savings invested legiti
mately in mining schemes brought
him a good profit, which he im
mediately put into the stock of
the bank. After he had served as
c.ishler and became second vice presi
dent, it is raid, ho began to personally
Interest himself in many corporations
which wero applicants for loins and in
this way. in cours of time, he drifted
into unwarranted speculations. Where
these turned out badly he la now ac
cused o! sending "good money after
bad" and disguising ills over-loans in
various illegal ways.

What the Total Amount To -A Decrease
of Threo E'er Cent.
Nrw YoitK. Jnn. 4. Tho Engineer
ing and Mining Journal says tlio pro
duction of mineral and metals in tho
United States for the year 1890
amounted to SG.13,31 1,108. showing n
decrease, ns compared with 1895 of
821,089,200, or about 3 per cent This
decrenso wns largely In values rather
than tit quantities; in none of the chief
articles was there any marked de
crease, while in several there wero
Tho total productions of metals wns
8212,311,181, an Increase of Si, 091, 111
over the previous year, while the valuo
of non-metallic substances was 3410,
999,987, a decrease of 80,383,377 from
1895. A large part of this wos due to
the lower values of coal, stono and n
few other importnnt substances, very
little resulting from the smaller quan
tities. Tho production of alluminuin shows
an increase of 400,000 pounds over
that of 1895, the total for tho year be
ing 1,300,000 pounds. The rroduetlou
continues In the hands of a single com
pany. Thu Increase in copper has been ex
traordinary, tho total gain amount
ing to 07,703,150 pounds, which was
made in spite of a large decrease In
the domestic demands, but was ab
sorbed by the extraordinary exports of
tho year, which are the largest on
The gold production in the United
Stntes in 1S90 renched the total of
$57,000,000. The increase far surpasses
tho gain reported from uny other coun
try in the world and puts the United
States In the lead. This country's Out
put of gold was 20 per cent of the re
ported output of the entire world.
Tho production of pig iron was
8,709,809 long tons, Tim depression of
business which made Itself manifest
in tho latter part of tho year had less
effect than had been anticipated, tho
decrease from 1895 being only 077,439
tons, or about 7 per cent. The pro
duction of lend from domestic ores
amounted to 175,717 short tons, show
ing nn increase of 20,803 tons over the
preceding year. In addition to this
there was 79,000 tons produced from
imported ores or refined from imported
bullion. The quick-silver output was
33,012 flasks of seventy-six half-pounds
each, showing a decrease of 900 flasks
from the previous year. The produc
tion continues to come wholly from
the California mines, no new deposits
having been developed to tho produc
ing point during the year.
The production of silver from do
mestic ores reached a total of 45, 105,175
fine ounces, showing a decrease from
that of 1895 amounting to 805,002
ounces only. Tho silver production
has thus been maintained better than
hnd been anticipated. Moreover, thero
wero produced from foreign bullion by
our smelters nnd other works no less
than 40,000,000 fine ounces of silver,
making tho total quantity refined or
put into final marketable form in this
country 85,405,173 flno ounces. This
large production wns almost entirely

The totnl production of spelter for

Tho productioj. was fully up to the de
mand, however. Of the spelter 31,431
tons came from Illinois and Indiana
districts, 30,331 tons from the Kansas
Missouri region nnd 0,322 tons from
eastern and southern productions. Tho
Intter as well as tho Illinois showed u
decrease, a slight gain being reported
from the Kansas-Missouri region.
As was inevitable In a year of busi
ness depression, the increase in coal
was not large, in fact it is GurprUing
that bituminous coal should J .v
thown anything at all. The output in
1SJG was 141,770,0111) tons, show. nj-:v
pain of 4,71,7V2 tons over 1895. On
the other hand there was a decrease of
0,782,0.")7 short tons in anthracite pro
duction, this amount being greater
than the gain in bituminous. Tho
total coal production was thereforo
103,351, 027 short tons and the total dc-eren-e
as compared with '.895 wai 2,
410,"0." tons, iith ordinary prosper
ity i-iid activity in manufacturing we
would doubtless havo passed 200,000,
Od0 tons before this, and it is to be
hoped that point will be reached in
lt-97. The production of coko showed
a gain of 44.420 tons; chiefly due to the
activity of the Iron and steel trades in
the earlier part of the year. The price
of coal continues very low, the average
for bituminous coal at mines being be
low 31 per ton.

RAILROADING IN 1896.
A Year of Many Dliaupulnttncnt nnd
Urrat I.on of Cnpllul.
CmcAOOt Jan, A. Tho your just
closed has been ono of disappointment
hnd losses In all lines of business, says
the Hallway Ago, hnd as tho railroads
cannot prosper when other Interests
Buffer" they havo paliiftllly reflected the
gencrnl depression. Tho promise of
Increased earnings given early in tllf
year was not sustained, and as a con
sequence many companies which, if
good timeN had begun, would have
bjeu nblc to meet their obligations;
were obliged to default and turn
over possession of their property to
the courts. Instead, therefore, of the
expected decrease in tho number of in
solvencies compared with the previous
yenr. we find an increase in both the
number and mileage of roads placed
In the hands of receivers, although the
capitalization involved is considerably
less. Compared indeed with either
1891. 1893 or 1892, the record of 1890 is
favorable, although nt the best It Is
still bad enough, for It shows that dur
ing last year thirty-four roads, with
.1,841 miles of lines and a bond und
stock capitalization of about S-9j, 000,
000, joined the list of railways opera
ted by receivers.
The five years of financial trouble
commencing with 1892 have left a
record of bankruptcies far greater than
that of the preceding ten years and
more. In that period 213 roads have
been turned over to receivers, with
lines aggregating r0,403 miles, or 30
per cent of the entire present mileage
of the United States, and u capital
ization representing over 5179,000,000,
or about 30 per cent of the bonds and
stock of our entire railway system to
day. These nro apalllng figures. Cer
tainly no other form of business in
vestment has suffered such loss as tlio
railways within the past few years.
In 181 (J no less than fifty-eight'roads
were sold for their creditors, repre
senting 13,730 miles of lines, and thd
enormous capitalization of SI, ISO,'
The most important failure of the
year was that of Hie llaltinioi'e and
Ohio, with 2,091 miles of road and over
5124,000,000 of bonds and stock, besides
heavy llontlug debt and arrears of in
terest. Tho bankruptcy of this old
and formerly profitable company was
discouraging evidence of t.iu effects
of unlimited competition. The other
notable failures include the Louisville,
New Albany and Chicago, SOI miles
and 528,730,000 of liabilities; the
six roads forming the Vaudalia
system, aggregating nearly 000
miles and 824,000.000 of bonds
and stock: tho Pittsburg ,fc Western,
involved in the cmbnrrasMiicnt of the
Paltlmore .t Ohio, 325 miles and 818,
.100,000, and two related Eastern roads,
the Central Vermont and Ogdensburg
and Lake Chninplain, covering 778
miles of road and nearly 517,000,000 of
The summary of receiverships for
last thirteen years shows that 412

Washington. Jan. 1 When the
House ways and means committee re
sumed its hearings to-day, William
Rutherford of Oakland, Cat, repre
senting a company which had been
manufacturing twine, yarn and cloth
for thirty years, usked that yarns made
of jute be advanced from 30 to 35 per
cent ad valorem; that burlaps and
bags of grain made of burlaps be trans
ferred to the dutiable list at cents
per pound and bags for grain made of
burlaps be taxed 2 cents per pound;
that gunny bags and gunny cloths, old
or refuse lit only for manufacture, bo
changed from the free list to cent
per pound. He declared that the Wil
ton law had wrought commercial dis
aster and social discontent to the Pa
cific coast, but the farmers and manu
facturers had In the last election
voted for protection, knowing it
would restore prosperity to them. The
industry on the Pacific coast had been
stricken down nnd now there were 300
idle looms in Oakland, while in New
York and Massachusetts, mills had al
so been closed. Under the operation of
the present law, horse blankets.plalds,
carriage robes, tarpaulin and print
cloths were entered free of duty and
came into competition with American
products, particularly cotton. They were
entered by virtue oi the designation
"other materials" In the jute and
hemp schedule of the Wilson bill, al

had protested against ruch a construc

entered free were dyed so that the
