Action of the Treasury O/llcliiln Seta New
York Hankers to Tlilnldni ; .
Nsw YOIIK , July 17. Much curiosity has
been .shown in banking circle * as to the
cause of the treasury officials voluntarily
piying out gold in llou of clearing house
balances and for government chocks over the
cauutor when some form of currency would !
have been moro desirable to the payees , and
when it was supposed that the government 7
was desiious of building up the gold reserve
nguln to the $ ! 00KJOX ( ( > 0 limit. Mr. Jordan
declined to give any reason for the treasury
I paying out gold as stated , but suggested
that it bo Inferred to he duo to a desire to
t provide for seine need of currency at a dls-
Vuit date. Ho said it was not because the
government ilid not wish to isstio any moro
gold certificates , which it must do as soon as
the gold reserve IsSIOO.OOO.OOOand the theory
of thi ) suggestion is that the gold Is moro
readily hoarded in that form , the govern
ment storing it free of cost.
1'rom a rasiyoiiblblo government source It
was learned that the government had boon
ii.iyiug out gold boeaiisuit feared that un-
Jcs.-i it made-provisions in time It would bo
imiible to supply the demands for currency
that may bo imulo upon It In n short time for
moving the crops. Leaving out the . ( KX ) , .
IXH ) In greenbacks which the government
requires to keep on hand for redemption pur
poses , the United States treasury only has
now about S1.V,000,000 ) of greenbacks ( legal
tender notes ) available. If , as has bocn
Hupposnil , the great scarcity of currency has
boon caused by the precautionary meas
ures taken by u.inka throughout the country
In fortify themselves during the recent
stringency , and the current1 } luln the vaults of
tluHo country banks , then thnre will not beery
u \ery great donmnd on the treasury for cur
rency tu mqvoiho crops ; but if , us has also
bocn BUKgostod , the missing currency is not
locked up In the country banks , lint is
hoarded by the people , then Urn United
States treasury expects to have all It can do
to supply the doiimuu upon it for currency
during the next fuw weukt. The question
whether thu country banks or the people
have bocn hoarding the currency can bo
told when a comparison is umdu of the reports -
ports to the comptroller last week with
hulr reports of six months ago.

WASHINOTO.V , July 17. Heavy Clearing
House payments In Now York caused the
gold reserve to fall lower than it has been
for several daya past nnd $316,880 less than
It was on Saturday. The reserve today
amounts to JlW.Oj'J SOj currency balance ,
The Star this ovenlnir plvo < publicity to
the following statement in regard to the
Kold payments from the United States sub-
treasury in Now Vork :
Considcrablo effort Is being made by fi
nancial ngcnts hero to discover the motive
behind thcso payments , but the department
is as closo-moutned as n clam. The explana
tion got throuirh private sources Is that the
department is trying to take advantage of
the scarcity of small and convenient cur
rency for internal business to pinch the
banks us thu banks hove pinched the gov
ernment by storing gold. .
' The banks are greatly In need of smal1
bills for current business 'transactions and
for use in the agricultural districts. The
theory Is advanced that If they cannot got
what they need of this sort of currency by
any other means they will have to make
terms with the treasury which would In
volve their exchanging Bold or gold certifi
cates in largo quantities for notes and cer
tificates of small denomination.
"It Is said that the department can afford
to pay out gold on the drafts presented by
ho banks , If , by so doing It can cut off the
source through which the banks would got
their small notes and put them to sufliclont
Inconvenience to bring them to terms. The
banks understand that if they want small
notes and certificates they can secure them
by taking largo quantities nnd paying for
them in gold , and it Is the theory of the de
partment that by pinching them pretty close
they can alTord to do this. It is very prob
able that the issue of gold certificates will
not bo resumed If the gold reserve gets above
$100,000.000 , as It is not clear that the law
is mandatory in requiring a renewal of this
issue after it has been stopped by reason of
the reserve falling below $100,000,000. "

onu-half cut. In tame grasses the alfalfa ,
which has revolutionized the tame grass
crop of this part of the state , Is nearly ready
for cutting the second time. This wonderful
plant will produce this year from three to
four crops of hay , which will make an av

"Even the tenants are careful to keep

10 reasons that It takes so much from

"I should think you would move any

"What good would it do ? I might

THAT WICKED OFFICE BOY.
IIo Mun.iRcil so tiuttlo Up un Oht Score
With tint Typewriter.
The ofllco boy and-tho blond3 typewriter -
writer had quarreled. It was over a
trivial matter , to bo sure , but neverthe
less they were on the outs.
Both seemed spitefully revengeful ,
and when ono day the yflleo boy played
oft' sick and wont to the base ball game
the typewriter made known to the em
ployer the youth's sporting pro
clivities. This , as .might bo ex
pected , caused trouble , and the wrath
of the ofllco boy against the young lady
with nimble fingers increased moro and
more. Days passed and the lad planned
ana dreamed of schemes to "get back"
at his fair tormentor , 'Who stood so well
n the graces of th'o employer. Now on
every typewriter there Is a small gong
which rings when tl o end of the line is
reached. The ollico boy know this , and
as ho watched the prettily tapered lin

It was late in the afternoon. The
young lady was industriously tapping
the keys to finish the firm's corre
spondence. She had reached the last
letter , and remarked to the ofllco boy
that her best young man was going _ to
take her to the theater that evening.
Ilonca her hurry. This only made the
ollico boy smile all the more , for ho knew
that his time had come. His eyes
bcemod to say "Revenge is sweet. " The
young lady slipped the piece of paper
into the nuichino and began at a light
ning speed to write from her notes.
The youth watched the carriage
sliding to and fro. IIo took from his
pocket a rusty nail and , as the type
writer wrote on unconsciously , ho tapped
the boll llghty with the nail. The young
lady , never thinking , pushed the paper
up another line and went on. Again the
boy tapped the bell and again the young
lady turned the machine. This was
kept up until the maiden had written
all there was to write.
A small figure had sneaked easily out
of the door. The blonde withdrew the
sheet from the machine. She looked a
it and looked again and saw before her
a letter written something after the
fanliion of the latter-day stepladder
poetry. Not a single line was properly
written. The girl grow thoughtful. She
scorned to remember that the boll had
rung n trlllo oftener than usual. She
looked about the room and then she re
moinborod that the ollico boy had once
upon u time gone to a base ball game
and had remarked subsequently that ho

It was n happy thought ot the Omaha
Toimls club to mnko .1 charge of ten cents
for spectators who wished to watch , from n
comfortable sent and a connimmUnir position ,
the llnalo of the city tournament. Saturday
night's misfortune , for which the weather
cleric was entirely responsible , was amply
compensated for last evening. Ton dollars
Is not a largo sum , but it represents
quite n considerable number ot
dimes , and was largo 0110113)1 ) to
gladden the ho.irt of mtny a woario.1 com-
mtttccraan , troubled with the thought of n
possible levy on the momboM before the sea
son clo3od. There were enough people In-
slao the grounds , at a dlmo a head , to 1111
the chain provided , and more. And many
otherstoo mean or too poor to pay the dime ,
stood In the street without ami watched
through the netting.
It w.is n few minutes after 0:110 : when Cul
lingham nnd Donlso entered the center
court , which wai again in excellent condi
tion , as smooth as marble and the
lines as straight as a telegraph wire.
There were quite a number of
onlookers already seated mid others kept
dropping in from time to tlmo until play
was stopped by the darkness. CuUhigham
started by taking two games , and through
out the llrst set ho maintained the lend bo
had thus early acquired , winning at ' 0-1.
Denise warmed up .in the second sot and
eventually equalized matters. Ho was ; ! ,
4-2 anil 5-l ! , am' ran out at 0-J.
In tills second set Denise put In some re
markably clover strokes. Ho scorned to bo
trying to score whenever possible from the
return of the service. If Uulllngham ran up
he would do his best to puss him on one
side or the other or lob over his ho'id ,
and if he waited on the base line
to get the ball on the bounce it would bo returned -
turned sharp as possible and generally on the
left hand side lino. Cullingham also plnjed
a placing game to a largo extent , but Denise
was all over the court at once and reached
everything that came over with little force
With the score equal In both sots and
games. Donlso started in with some very
wild play and allowed his opponent to got a
load which it was impossible afterwards to
catch up to. Cullingham , on the
other hand , played a strong came , hit
ting the balls with moro decision than
ho had boon doini * . Save for an occasional
brilliant rally in which Denise showed what
bo could do in getting dinicult balls on the
volley or half-volley , Culllngham had mat
ters In his own hands throughout the en
At this point it was suggested that there
would not bo time for another set beloro
darkness intervened , but it was agreed at
any rate to make a start. Four games were
played and the seoro was two
games all , when Donlso finally declared
that he could not possibly see any longer.
It was in fact too dark for even the spectators
to follow the ball and it was only fair to both
players to postpone the remainder of the
match until tonight.
By permission of the Young Men's Chris
tian association the chairs which were in
use last night will also Do on the ground to
night , and the committee earnestly hope
that the spectators who showed their appre
ciation of the beginning of the mutch last
night will turn out again to sco what prom
ises to be an Intensely exciting finish this
evening. The score now stands at two
sots to one in favor of Cullingham (0-4 ( ,
4-0 , 0-1) ) ; and it will bo necessary , therefore ,
for Culliiigham to win one moro , or Denise
two , to win. In addition to this , Fosbenner

DOUBLE USE OF RIVERS.
Trnnnportlnpf Sawnen nnd TumUlilug AVntor
If Philadelphia shall abandon the
Schuylltill as the source of its water sup
ply , says the Press of that city , its only
alternative resource is to take possession
and bring into the city the water of some
other river. Kivors are absolutely nec
essary to furnish water to great cities In
quantities sufllcient for the needs of
modern civilization. But cities every
where are built on the theory that the
only possible main sewer is the river
which flows beside them. When Phila
delphia asked the legislature to forbid
placing sewage or offensive matters of
any kind in rivers which are the source
of water supply for cities , the repre
sentatives from every town in the state
which drained its so waso into some river
or stream united in opposing it and it
was easily defeated. It was felt oven
hero that the passage of the bill would
cause some embarrassment to Philadel
phia , as the city of Chester , fourteen
miles below , still draws Its water from
the Delaware after the entire sewage of
Philadelphia has been emptied into it.
This horribly incompatible use of
rivers In the dpublo capacity of sewer
nnd drinking reservoir is seen every
where in the United States , and its di
vorce has only begun In Europe. The
great city of London has grappled with
the dilliculty In splendid fashion. Its
sewage , amounting to 200,000,000 gallons
lens a day , is carried by great sewers
twelve miles below the city into two
largo storapro reservoirs on opposite
sides of the Thames. There it is treated
by chemicals which precipitate the soliu
j matter , while the liquid remaining is
discharged clear njid odorless into the
Thames when the tide is running ocean
The expense of this method of render
ing its sewage harmless and saving the
great wealth of fertility It contains for
the soil does not break London , and
would not break smaller cities , since
with a smaller volume of sewage the
dilllcultics of disposing of it are loss.
Paris is not so well situated as London
for disposing of its sewage in this man
ner. It is still grappling with the sub
ject , making and considering reports
thereon , while the Seine below Paris ,
after receiving the contents of all its
sewers , Is fouler oven than the Chicago
river. The water is In a state of con
stant agitation from the fermentation of
the sewage. It is covered with a greasy-
looking scum and discharges mophitie
uas fatal to animal lifo in great abund
ance. The dwellers along the lower
Seme complain bitterly of its contamiim-
toin , though it Is not reported that they
use this water at , any place below Paris
for drinking purposes. In this the
French show a moro delicate taste and
moro regard for hygienic principals than
the Inhabitants of Chester , Pa. , and wo
might add the great majority of Ameri
There is no doubt that ( ho government
of Paris will eventually iind a moro ra
tional way of disposing of Its sewage
than by converting the lower Seine Into
a foul open sower. The evils which
have brought about the costly but &onsl-
blo sewage plant of London , which are
disturbing Paris and harassing our fol-
low-clti/.uns of Chicago , exist to a greater
or loss extent in every city which
pollutes the fair rivers at its doors with
foul sowngo. If the inconvenience ol
this method of deposing of sewage is
not felt by the city offending , the towns
below are usually conhclous of the bar
barism of the custom. Wo criticise
justly the unintelligent violations of the
common law of health by oriental peo-
Glo , whoso unsanitary modes of llfo
reed cholera and other pestilence , hut
western clvlll/.atloii has llttlo room foi
boasting so long as It continues the dis
gusting and unwholesome custom ol
using its rivers at once as water sup

Dtirlnir the past two or three days a horri

ing onicor Utirr concluded that
something was wrong down there
and with the assistance of Sergeant
U'lmlon ho burst In the dr-or on the Jackson
trcot side. A rush of loiil air nearly
knocked thorn down and the crowd which
vas standing about thorn tnado a break for
ho street. The awful odor was so sickening
hat the men had to soo\ fresh air and then
inter the placo. holding tholr noies.
They went through the llrst room niut
voro groping tholr w.iy about In the ad-
olnlng room , which was dark as night. Ono
of thorn struck something with his foot , ami
striking a match behold a horrible sight ,
n front of him lay the remains of a man.
1'ho body and features were swollen and dis
torted beyond recognition and maggots were
rapidly consuming the putrid Itosh.
The ofllcors summoned Coroner Maul. The

Ho was about 43 years of ago and

Irank a good do.il and List Thursday hla
; oods were sot out on the sidewalk by John
Utngman , the constable , who was afterward
tn-cstod for obstructing the sldowalk.
Dingman locked the place from thooutslda
with a padlock , and Sunday a peculiar and
offensive odor was noticed coming from the
Two days before the eviction StcliimarU
was missed from his usual haunts , but no
ono took the trouble to Inqulro after him.
Ho has not yet turned up , and It is bollovod
that the dead man is the Polandor.
Ho used the front room as a harbor shop ,
but the room In which the boay was found
has never boon used for anything. It is a
lark , gruesome hole nnd n man would
hardly bo noticed on the lloor.
It Is known that Stoinmark was In strin

and committed sulcido in the back
room. Then his goods were evicted
d his body was overlooked by the con
stable. The body was so decomposed that it
could not bo ascertained If tboro ivcro any
marks of violence on it. It might have boon
that the poor fellow died from natural
causes nlono and unattended , but the sulcido
theory scorns the most probable.
The fact of the man being In the place

nnd is only accounted for by the bcllnf that
