WASUIXOTO.V , D. C. , March 7. The major
ity nnd minority report of the committed on
ways nnd means on the investigation Into
the condition of the treasury made by the
committee wcro today presented and sent to
the in In tor. Appended to the majority report -
port , prciKued by Representative Springer ,
Is a copy of the statements sent to the com
mittee by the Treasury department , nnd of
the testimony taken on the subject.
Mr. Springer in his report aajs , assuming
the statements mndo by Secretary Foster
mo correct , on the BOth of Juno next there
will bo nn estimated cash balance of 20-
IK > 2,37 : ! over nnd above the legal ( told reserve.
It will appear from nn examination of Mr.
Foster's verbal statement to the eommlttco
in explanation of this estimated balance tlmt
It li probably too large. The balance will bo
reduced by the payment of the Choctaw
claims $ ,1,000,000. It will also bo reduced by
nny unestlmatcd nnd extraordinary expense
which may bo incurrednnd also by any fault
in thu estimated receipts from customs , in
ternal revenue or other sources during the
time indicated. The majority nro of the
opinion that at the close of the present year
there will bo nn available cnsh balance in
the treasury , aside from the old reserve of
* iot over ? 17,000,000.
CiiRh llnlnnro for 181)1.
As to 1891 , Mr. Sprlnper says that , accord
ing to the treasurer's statement , the secre
tary estimated an available cash b.ilanco of
17,787,420 , but this b.ilanco is chargeable
with contract liabilities already appro-
printed to exceed 8-10,000,000. It is impossi
1)lo that nil this ninount will bo called for
during fiscal year , but this is the
amount estimated 05' the department , nnd
the available casli balance would bo reduced
to 17,800,000.
It nlso appears from this statement thnt if
the liabilities decrease $31,1112 the Hem $10-
11R.7W ) will bo called for in 1804 for rivers
nnd harbors. Of this amount $14,100.1511 has
IHJCII appropriated for in the sundry civil
lilll for Ib'Jl. The charge upon the
treasury for thnt year must nlso bo aug
merited by whatever deficiency appropria
tions may bo requited , which , including
pension deficiencies , have averaged during
the past five sessions 325,000.000 each year.
To this dellclency may bo added the amount
of miscellaneous appropriations , which for
llvo sessions past have craped $7,000,000
each session. From those estimates , how
ever , It is probable there may bo some sav
ing on estimated expenditures In the actual
appropriations. Under the most careful
estimates that can now bo made , it is
out , says the report , that nt the end of the
ensuing llscal thcro will bo n ncilcicncy
amounting to Irom $ ! U,000,000 to $40,000,000.
Uriiilromaut | of thn Sinking Fluid.
In these cilculatlons ro account whatever
has been taken of the requirements of the
sinking fund The requirements of this fund
vrero not mot during the past llscal year ,
no efforts being made to meet such require
ments during the current llscal year , nor can
nny of Its requirements bo observed
( luring the ensuing fiscal year , unless tliero
is n largo Increase in the revenues of the
government. The balance duo the sinking
fund in 18W was ? 1107.825. ; ! the requirements
for 18U3 are estimated at $43,09:1,000 : , and nt
the end of the next fiscal year thcro will bo
duo the fund n little over $100.000,000.
The majority also do not concede thnt the
secretary of the treasury is correct In charg
ing against the fund 510,000.000 paid for the
redemption of national bank notes of banks
which have gene into liquidation. It thinks
that such payments should bo made out of
current receipts lu the tiuasury. ' This
would make nu estimated amount duo the
sinking fund JunoilO , 1804 , of $110,000,000.
In conclusion the majority clto Secretary
Foster's statement that , in his opinion there
would bo a delicti nt the end of the fiscal
year 181)1 ) , and that the receipts of the eov-
ornmcnt should bo incicased ut once by
$50,000,000 to meet the treasury conditions
09 sot forth in his report , nnd to Increase the
gold reserve fund by $25,000,000. ,
Minority llrport.
The minority report , which was drafted
by Koprcsontativo Payne of New York , nnd
is signed bv nil the republican members of
the committee , says the conclusion of The
majority from the evidence seems wholly
unwarranted nnd misleading.
"In fnct there seems to bo n lack of evi
dence to Justify any criticisms of the major
ity upon the statements of the secretary ,
which showed n sharp decrease on Juno SO ,
1603. The statements of the secretary , sup
plemented by the evidence of the treasury
exports , are evidently of the most con
servative character. The estimated receipts
are placed nt n minimum , while the esti
mated expenditures nro placed at max
imum. "
Speaking of the Cliootaiv claim the
minority say that the majority are very
swift to charge this $7,000,000 against the
estimated balance for 181)3 ) , but nowhere de
duct it from the estimated payments for
18U4 , in M hlch year the secretary estimated
it would bo paid. Upon the deduction of
this Item the majority sav the balance of
31,000,000 , will bo only S17OuO,000 , thus de
ducting $4,000,000 from the secretary's esti-
mite , which is unwarranted. The malorltv
are correct In changing the current liabili
ties of 18H ! of $40,000,000 against the op.
parent balance of $47,000,000. It was quite
evident , however , that the secretary does
not believe this $ 10,000,000 will nil bo paid
during IS'.U , and ho has no doubt hut that
the condition of the treasury will bo re
lieved to n considerable extent by the reduc
tion In payments on these contract accounts.
Mndo n Duublii Cliurfro ,
The majority would nlso charge in addition
Slfl.Utij'M ) for rivers and harbors , but this
has already been charged once , and the sun
dry civil bill , moreover , carries only $14,100- ,
1K1 for rivers nnd harbors.
The minority next attacks the mode of
averaging deficiencies adopted by the ma
jority as grossly misleading , for the reason
thnt there is such n great variation that
tliero van bo no average. The large pension
deficiencies , v hlch wcro made up of a p.irt
of this average , arlso from the chnngcs of
law nnd from the effect of such changes. A
inoro reliable way as to pensions It says , is
to take the statement oi the commissioner of
pensions , which does not Justify n higher
pension deficiency than * 7,700,000 , nnd in
other matters of $ S,000,0 , < X ) , would make n
totnl deficiency of $15 , < xxX ) ( > 0.
The average of miscellaneous appropria
tions nrri\i.ul at by the majority is also at
tacked. The minority say the fnct should
not hnvo escaped the majority that during
the past two or three years a now jwllcy had
been Inaugurated , and bills for public build-
lug. light houses , etc. , no longer receive di
rect appropriations nnd are now largolv car
ried in the sundry civil bill , so that the total
of the last miscellaneous appproprlation
nmomitcd to about $11,000,000 , n > ere than half
of which was for the World's fair.
. On the basis of the statement of the secre
tary of thu treasury It would seem that the
, amount of either surplus or deficiency in the
treasury Juno 80 , IblH , would bo very small.
The revenue from customs , on the lusts of
percentage of Increase each year , ought to
bo larger than estimated by $11,000,000. Cer
tainly there is no justification for the major
ity deficiency , estimated at the close of IbUl
of from SSO.WJO.OOO to $40,000,000.
rTho remarks relative to the sinking
fund are commented on as follows-
"Tills credit could not bo made to that
fund from the current revenues of this
year without increasing our taxation
sunleicntlv to retire $ , V,000,000 ) of bonds per
annum. Uo the majority of the committee
advocate nny such changes j otherwise , why
do they bring the matter into the report , for
they certainly know that prior to July 1 ,
1801 , the requirements of this act had been
nearly f ) . "
In conclusion the minority report says :
tl\\o cannot escape the conclusion that the
majority of the committee have , whether In
tentionally or not , put the worst possible
| ihf\so upon the condition of the treasury
jvcrlooklng tlio Important points the secre
tary of the treasury and the exports exam
ined -in arriving at their unwarrantable
conclusion * . "

Orcanlzntlon oTthu Nuxt Senate Considered
Tlii'StonrltiK Committee.
WAsiuxaTox , D. C. , March 7. The demo
cratic caucus , which met In the senate
chamber this morning , was well attended.
The action today indicates that the populist
senators nro to be ignored. Senators Kyle
of South Dakota , the old populist , nnd Mr.
Allen , the new populist elected from Ne
braska , were not invited to attend the cau
cus. Martin of Kansas , however , although
elected by fusion votes , is considered a demo
crat and as such was Invited. Mr. Allen , it
is said , will vote with tbo democrats when it
comes to the organization.
The caucus was orgaui/ed by re-electing
Mr. Gorman chairman and Mr. Faulkner
secretary. The session lasted four hours ,
the only actual business transacted being to
authori/o the chairman to appoint a commit
tee to dovlso a plan for reorganization and
report to the caucus upon the call of the
chairman. Much t'mo ' was consumed in n
discussion bearing upon the standing of the
senators who have been appointed by gov
ernors , tbo cases in point being Senators
Bcckwitb , appointed by the governor of
Wyoming , and Mantel , appointed by the
governor of Montana. A spirit of opposi
tion against seating either of these
apjKjintmcnts was evinced , and In view of
this n number of old decisions in senate con
tested elections were quoted. It was claimed
that Inasmuch as the legislature of these
states had not exorcised the prerogative
belonging to them the governor had no
authority to fill the places , nnd the states
should remain unrepresented. A precedent
for such action was cited from an early Cali
fornia case. It was finally decided , however ,
that these matters , together with the case
of Mr. Martin , should bo referred to the
committee on privileges and elections.
After the close of the caucus the "demo
cratic steering committee , " consisting of
Gorman , Brlco , Cockrell. Ransom and Harris ,
repaired to the committee room of Mr.
Hansom and remained in conference for
more than three hours. At the conclusion
of the conference Mr. Gorman announced the
following subcommittee : Messrs. Black
burn , Hansom. Cockroll , Harris , Brlce ,
White of Ixjulslana and Gorman. This
committee will probably begin its work to

WASHINGTON" , D. C. , March 7. Ex-Secre
tary of tbo Treasury Charles Foster said
this evening { ho treasury was down to bed [
rock when turned over to the now secretary
. Mr. Carlisle yi
today. will llnd himself con i-
fronted with a great responsibility to main
tain the gold basis , nnd n man of less ability
might find tliu task n very dlfllcult ono.
Probably before ho has been two days in
oWco ho will find it necessary to choos'o be
tween Issuing bonds and trenching upon
the gold reserve.
The ox-secretary said the department now
had practically no gold reserve , there being
less than $2,000.000 free gold. lie did not re
gard the situation as alarming , however , as
nil the excitement about gold shipments
appeared to have subsided. It was. ho said I ,
in better condition than ho expected to find
it at this time , and did not look as alarming
as It did a week or more ngo.
AVhen asked if ho did not think bonds
would ha veto bo Issued , ho replied : "Car
lisle might , instead of that , use some of the
reserve. " Ho said Carlisle undoubtedly had
the right to use a part of the gold reserve if
ho needed to do .
so. Besides the gold re i.
serve , Foster said , he would turn over to the
now secrotarv about $2U,000,000. consisting
of national bank reserve nnd subsidiary
coins and disbursing ottleers' balances.
Against th's are outstanding drafts covering
most of it , but not liable to bo presented for
payment at once.
"Congress , " ho said , "should have in
creased the whisky tax 50 cents and given
us a chance to replenish our stock of money "
"Tho fact is. " ho added , "tho acmand for
gold is perfectly regular. It is not speculat
ive. It is a natural demand , foreign coun
tries needing gold. The only thing artificial
or speculative in the situation was the effort
made to keep gold hero. Our bankers bor
rowed $10,000,0JJ of gold to keep it hero.
That , of course , was to kcep'tho market
steady and not to meet business demands
However , there is nearly $ T > 00,000,000 gold in
the country , the public mind is
lively easy and I have no doubt but Carlisle
will bo able to put himself in n position to
meet all demands for gold.

elected at the coming battle of ballots. Up
until two years ago these- were nptwlntlvo

at the last session of the legislature they
were inado elective. The charter , however ,
was not signed by the governor until two
days after election , and Mayor Weir names
Messrs. Bullock , Scott and Dobson as water
commissioner , uttotney and engineer res
pectively. Last April they wcro succeeded
by Messrs. I'erclval , Abbott and Dohson , who
were elected by the people. The question
now turns on whether or not they wore
elected for two years or simply to 1111 ti
The mayor said this morning to a UEK re
porter that ho had taken legal advlco on the
matter and was convinced that the election
was merely to nil a vacancy , and that when
ho was fortified by a legal written opinion
ho should include them in his proclamation.
The call which ho has prepared also Includes
the name of the police Judge , who has been
elected on off years for some time , but ho is
not sure whether ho will Include it. This
point Is being looked up , and if the mayor
finds that it Is being covered by the law
governing the other cases , the city will have

BEATUICE , Neb. , March " . [ Special Tele-

nado by private partltos for the purchase of
the Beatrice water worlcs system from the
city. The price offered was 135,000. It Is
thought that the lively political campaign
now on in this city has something to do with
the matter The system has proven a rather
IKior investment for the city during the past
llvo years nnd a very unsatisfactory quality
of water has been produced through the
mains. It is thought that if private parties
can secure the management of the works an
ampfo supply can bo secured and the system
put on a paying and business basis. The
present water commission has demonstrated
by a careful collection of the water rents
that the system can bo made to pay and the
number of consumers largely Increased by
proper management which the department
has not enjoyed heretofore.

Here's the Idea
Of the Non-pull-out Dow
The great watch saver. Saves the watch
from thieves and falls cannot be pulled off
the case costs nothing extra.
The bow has a croove
on each end. A collar
runs down inside the
pendant ( stem ) nnd
fits into the grooves ,
firmly locking the
bow to the pendant ,
so that It cannot be
pulled or twisted off.
Can only be bad with cases
stamped with this trade mark.
Jas. Boss Filled Watch Cases are
now fitted witli this great bow ( ring ) . They
look and wear like solid gold cases. Cost
only about half as much , and are guaranteed
for twenty years. Sold only through watch
dealers Remember the name
