WASHINGTON , Oct. 8. [ Special Telegram
to the Uicn.l It has been charged with a
ureatdeal of particularity that the president
i ' had the speeches which ho delivered In Indiana
diana printed at the Government printing
office before ho started ou his trip. When
this charge was brought to the attention of
the public printer that ofllclal made a quali
fied denial , In which he stated that he had
never printed anything at the government
printing office which had not been previously
authorized by congress. To emphasize this
denial ho asserted that ho was careful In this
respect ; that ho did not even set up his re
port last winter until it had been ordered
printed hy congress , and asserted that lie
never prints any thine which Is not pre
viously authorl/ed by the only body which
lias power to order work done In his ollice.
If anything further were needed to show
that the public printer had told an untruth
It is found In this latter portion
ot his statement. lie printed the
president's message last winter before it had
been ordered hy congicbs , in fact before con
gress met. Then , too. ho printed 200 copies
of each of the president's veto messages
before they were sent to congress and they
have not only never been authorlml jet , but
they were not chaiRcd to any appropriation.
It l.s a remarkable fact , too , that In spite of ,
the denials of the public printer that thu
president's speeches were printed In his
ollice , there are In existence In this city
conies of not only those which h > ) has already
delivered , but of those which are still to bo
rattled olf. These are In the possession cfonu
of thu printers at thu government printing
office , who bajs that there Is a icmarkablo
similarity between these which wcro aimed
at the heads of the people of Indlauapollsand
Terre Haute , and that which H still to bo
delivered In Montgomery , Ala. It Is
ot course pnsslblo that this speech will not

about the cjclopfdla. Nevertheless , It Is In

German Garp ,
WASHINGTON. Oct. 8. [ Special to the
HKE. | Ten years ago there was scarcely a
single si rclmon of the German carp In the
waters ot the United States. In Germany ,
France , Kngland , Austria and other European
countries this fish has been a common article
of food for years. About ten or twelve
years ago I'rof. llalrd , of the United States
fish commission , determined to try to Intro
duce the llsh Into this country. Ho Invited
Dr. II. IIcsscl , who had been connected with
the German fish commission for many years ,
to come to this country to take charge of the
United States propagating ponds and to try
to Introduce the different species ol carp into
the waters of the United Slates. From that
time on the number of carp has constantly
Increased , until to-day they are found in
nearly every state In the union.
The United States earn pnmls are located
about a quaitcr ot a mile to the southwest of
the grounds surrounding the executive man
sion. They cover In all about thirty-live
acres of land , and are kept In admirable con
dition. Just at this time Dr. Hessel is pre
paring to make the annual bhlpments , and
lor this purpose the larger ponds hare been
drained oil and the llsh collected Into long
tienches , from which they can bo readily
gathered Into buckets. They aio carried
from the pond to the shipping loom of the
lisli comuiHilon , and fiom them they are
transported to the dilfrrent sections.of the
country. There will bo shipped during the
present month some where about three hun
dred thousand of these fish tn various sec
tions of the country. Maryland as the hrst
btato supplied , and the results \ > ere so balls-
factory that Virginia , Tennessee , North
Carolina and other states soon scut lu ap
plications fur supplies ot the lisli.
Lr. ) He eI is always at the ponds ready to
give Information to visitors , and ns he is
thoroughly versed In plscaculture , his talks
upon bshy subjects are alway.s entertaining.
When > our correspondent called upon him
to-day the doctor was found nursing a
broken wrist which he had seemed while
trjlng to jump from a car a day or to ago.
Ho \ \ as ready to talk about bis pets , howe\ ,
and proceeded to give the required Informa
tion. "It l < ) wrong to call tlie e lisli nil
German carp , " bald the doctor. "They are
found in all parts of Km ope , and are are as
much French , or Austrian , as German. We
havu thieo species here , namely , the leather
carp , which Is entirely devoid of scales ,
the mirror carp , which has a few
scales resembling small mirrors upon Its
Rides and the scale cam , which Is covered all
over with scales. They all belong to the
same family ami are all excellent iood lisli.
They are not noted for their gauiey qualities
and alfurd little sport to the angler who
fishes for the pure lo\o of the sport. Hut for
the farmer and the workman who bait their
lines for the food which \ > ill result , they are
excellent Usli and will repay the small outlay
necessary to prepare a place for the iish ,
which will bo sent by the lib ! ) commissioner
upon application. "
"Uo\v many thousands of the fish do you
distribute each year , doctor. "
"From to 400,000 at present Wo
distribute them at four months old , and by
this time they are trom Unto to live Inches
long. "

under oidinary conditions. They grow to a
very large size. It is not uncommon to lind
them weighing twentv , or even twenty-live
pounds and we Miuo Rome in these ponds
which will weigh thirty pounds. "
"Have the carp given general satisfaction
In this countryV"
"Generally , yes. They are rather coarse
llsh , and they will feed on anything. Where
they are raised in running streams or in
clean water ponds they aie very nice. If they
are turned Into mud-holes they will have a
rather strong flavor If eaten directly fiom
those mud-holes. In nearly every instnnce
when complaints have been received that the
lisli were not of a good llavor iiivestuation
has shown that they lia\o been laised lu poet
ponds. If the Iish are removed from these
peet ponds a fresh water bath for a day or
two before they are cooked nil this unpleas
ant taste will disappear. Those who Keep
carp In peet ponds should bear this In mind. "
"Upon what do j ou feed the Iish in these
ponds ? "
" 1'rlnclpally upon a paste made of four
parts corn meal and one pait Hour. This Is
cooked and thrown to them every day. In
the fwll we feed a great many pumpkins.
Thfy are very fond of these articles and In
lact they will thrUe upon any kind of vege
table matter. Hero are some other fish closely
lelated to the carp family , " tontmued Dr.
llcssell , taking his caller to a pond In which
wein some beautiful Iish about fourteen
long , and of a rich gold color.
"They are golden Tench , or 'Schleie , '
as they are called In Germany , and aio
excellent food iish. These others which look
so much like them are golden Ido , from the
Ulver Danube. They look like the common
gold Iish seen In aquariums , but they aie ot
a dlltereut family entirely. You will notice
that the common gold fish seems to delight
In stlrlng up the mud from the bottom of the
water , but the golden Ido likes to have the
water in which ho swims as clear as possible ,
and ho never makes any commotion. The
tench or schelie has not been very exten-
snely Introduced Into this country as jet ,
but If any one wants to try to raise them
they will bo supplied. "

WASHINGTON , Oct. 8. { Special to the
llin : . I On Tuesday next the colored popula
tion of Wasclngton will turn out en masse
to a very recherche affair which annually
ilriuvs an enormous crowd. This alfair Is the
yearly cake walk and this year it Is to come
oft In the old skating rink on K street. Mr.
George 1'olndexter has captured the cake on
Euvrial occasions. Ho will try hard to carry
oil the prize this year. Mr. Polndoxter , who
Is as black as the ace of spades , is from an old

pied a position as nurse girl at 54 a week.
Cake walking social circles have recently been
startled to their center over the report that
Mr. and Mis. 1'olndexter had fallen out and
that they no longer traveled together. Mr.
1'olndcxter himself occupies an exalted posi

The Fidelity's Finances.
WASHINGTON , Oct. 8. The comptroller
of tlio currency has received from David
Armstrong , the iccelver of the Fidelity
national bank ot Cincinnati , full schedules
of ttio assets at the date of the failure June
21 , Ibb7. The schedules place the nominal
valu < ) of assets as upwards of 85,800,000 , of
which more than half are classed as worth
less or doubtful. The apparently valid
claims upon the bank tiled but not yet proved ,
are about 3,800,000 , while there are amounts
in deposit aggregating 81,500,000 ,
Subscriptions to the Increase of tlin capital
stock amount to 81,103,000 , but less than half
tills amount was paid In money , and oven if
what was so paid should llnally be adjudged
to constitute the liability of the receivership ,
It will bo nearly all offset by assessments on
the original .stock. The liabilities to depos
itors are about 500,000 , of wlilch n little over
SCO , 000 ap | ars to be held locally.
lianks and bankers appear as creditors lor
more than 3,000,000. but some changes may
bo made In these figures. On account of the
doubtful value ot assets , and large claims In
dispute , It Is Impossible at the present time
to make an estimate of what dividends may
bo paid ultimately. The cash on hand and
tlie amount ot assets undoubtedly good , war
rant a present dividend of 25 per cent , and
the iccelver has been instructed to prcpaie
checks and schedules at once.
lirltish India's Wheat Production.
WASHINGTON , Oct. S. The report of Con
sul General Bonham , at Calcutta , British
India , treats at length of the wheat interests
of that country during the liscal year ending
March 31 , IbbO. Tlio area de\oted to wheat
was about twenty-seven million live him-
died thousand acres , and tlio total yield
2bi,000,000 ) bushels. As compared with the
wheat of the PaciUc coast Indian wheat Is
inferior , but when exported to Kurope it is
mixed and ground with wheat of superior
o.ualltv , oy which process a fair rank market
able grade ot Hour is obtained. The method
ot cultivating the soli Is In the main tlui
same as It was centuries ago ,
and there seems to be great
dllliculty In Inducing the farmers to invest
in modern agricultural Implements , and yet ,
wuh all the Minplo and pH'matlvo methods ,
Indian farmers can , In tuo opinion ot the
consul general , successfully compete with
those of the United States In the production
of wheat by reason of extremely cheap labor ,
etc. Exports of wheat 'fr,6m ' British India
have Inci eased from ffy.WH ) ) cwt in IfcCS to
21,000,000 cwt in IbfeO and the Increase of 1888
over Ibb5 amounts to about 5,000 OOD cwt.
Furthermore , wheat-growing In India Is yet
in Its liitaucy and lts > luither development
depends principally upon the means ot tians-

The Demaiid For Money Quito Active
From All Sources ,
Kates of Interest Still Continue to
Bo Well Maintained Ilojf 1'ack-
Ine in the West Progressing
In Commercial Circles.
CHICAGO , Out. 8. ISpcclal Telegram to
thoUi5K. | Thedemand for money continues
quite active from all sources and bankers are
able to place their available funds readily and
at good rates of Interest. The feeling Is very
linn In the loan market and the Impression
prevails that the money market will gradu
ally work closer within the next sixty days
or when the packers seek financial assistance
to take care of hogs during the winter packIng -
Ing season. The close of lake navigation ,
too , will no doubt enlarge the stocks of grain
hero , consequently more funds will bo
required In that branch of the produce trade.
The demand from speculators for loans was
fair and parties who were able to piesent un
doubted collaterals were successful in ob
taining all the favors requested. Consider
able money was forwarded to the interior ,
but scattered rather widely throughout the
west and northwest Lumber dealers were
borrowing rather sparingly. Manufactmers
were presenting some paper for discount , but
generally for small amounts on short dates.
The wholesale merchants are somewhat
pressing In their demands , but they are
generally accommodated on the strength
o their active fall trade. Collections are
only fair. Country meichants are a little
slow In liquidating their bills. The financial
outlook on this market is not regarded as dis
couraging to active business during the bal
ance of the fall and winter , and whllo the
money market may show a Httlo stringency at
times , bankers will be Inclined to accept less
outside paper than usual and concentrate
their favors among1 local customers and bor
rowers. Katpsof Interests are well main
tained at C@7 per cent on call and O C53 per
cent on time loans. Very little paper Is ac
cepted under 7 per cent. On the street there
Is considerable mlsculanoous and outside
paper offered , wlilch commands still higher
rates of interest. In eastern financial centers
considerable stringency prevails and borrow
crs are compelled to pay C@8 per cent. For
eign markets , too , exhibit considerable stead-
cbs , with interest rates favoilng bankers.

the occurrence of a holiday on the occasion
of the visit of the president , there has been
a slight check In business In a general way.
Speculators are not Inclined to do much bus
iness during the holiday season and re
ceivers and shippers at the same time are
somewhat guarded In their operations ,
liowcver , there has been fair business trans
acted in all branches of the produce trade.
Deliveries on October contracts were com
paratively llxht , excepting of wheat , and of
Unit article only moderate. Foiolen markets
have exhibited a little more strength lor
most articles and seaboard mtirketa have
shown more steadiness. The lirmuess in
freights , however , especially to foreign
markets , has interfered with business to
some extent. A tair number of orders were
received from consuming marKets , but in
manv cases they were limited
to ligures below the views of sellers. The re
ceipts of produce have open moderately free
and shipments quite liberal , especially of
grain , lard and meats. Prices havu ruled with
some Irregularity , but fluctuations were con-
luied within a narrow ranuo and rather In
clined In favor of the buying Interest. At
tention is given largely to London deliveries ,
both m grain and provisions. ( Stocks of grain
are not enlarging to any greater extent than
usual at this season of the year , and the sur
plus of provisions shows only a fair reduc
tion , as arrivals of eattle and hogs have been
sulliciently laicn to materially incicaso the
manufacture. The exuort movement in grain
and provisions is well maintained , but It Is
supposed to be largely on lates of freights
contracted for before the leount advance.
lEeeelpts of grain and live stock at interior
points have been moderately free , though
complaints of lacK ot cars prevail in some
sections. Packing of hos In the west Is pro-
greasing favoiably , though business at pres
ent Is more concentrated at the leading
points. The aggregate returns show a
further reduction In the number as compared
with last season , but the quality is somewhat
improved , so that the aggregate production ,
will vary little from that of last bcason.
