Rev. George A. Beecher, Oun of Trlnltr

are professing Christians today who alt
looking over the ahoulder of the evil one
without one word of aympathy or regret
for his victlma; who never lift a finger to
snatch them from his grasp.

cast one and tried to bring them back
to Hla way. Bo we will find our greatest
consolation In going to God In prayer,
that, we may be enabled to bear each
other's burdens. We can make the burdens
lighter and life brighter by helping when
our brother falls, and thus cultivate the
real brotherly love."
Dean Beecher left Sunday evening for a
two months' trtp to England, Ireland and
Scotland. He will not be In Trinity pul
pit again until the first Sunday in Oc
tober. In the meantime the pulpit will
be filled by Rev, Percy Silver, chaplain at

himself aa deeply Impressed by the kind

that what I see and hear will enable me
to be of more service to my people."

Then It took six montha to go to Japan.
The two or three missionaries with their
families who went at that time had an

language, or rather the discovery of it,
for the Japs would not help out In the
work. "Nothing could be attempted at
first, but finally the curiosity of the Japs
got the better of them and they ventured
Into the compound. It was unsafe to ven

language and this was the first opening
toward the teaching of Christianity. That
aystemf Is still In rogue. They are taught

they will devote a ahort period to the
study of the Bible after the language lea

UNCLE SAM BAD DEBT PAYER
"Pigeon-Hole Man" ii Employed to Hold

RED TAPE TO TIRE OUT CLAIMANTS
Systematic Methods Kmployed In Gov.
eminent Departmeata to Keep Ills,
paled Cases from Reaeblag
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, July 13 (Special.) Did
you ever hear of the "pigeon-hole man?"
Probably not unless you have knocked
about the government departments In thla
city for several years. There are many
odd things about the executive departments,
but one or the most unique of Uncle Sam's
time-honored institutions Is this genius
who presides over these particular pigeon
holes. He is somewhat analogous to the
silent partner who Is blamed for every
thing that goes wrong and never gets credit
for anything that goes right. The "pigeon
hole man" is usually a person In responsible
position. His principal duty la to hold up
disputed cases as long as possible. At best
the government Is a bad debt payer and if
men in private life were to attempt the
same policy they would soon, lose their
business credit. Uncle Sam never pays
anything until he haa to. Thousands of
American cltlsens have money coming to
them and Uncle Sam knows It; knows their
claims are Just, but unless the particular In
dividual knows it, too, and presents a claim
so thoroughly prepared and so Invulnerable
to attack that It will do no good to pro
crastinate, the government will not en
lighten him. Thus It happens that thou
sands of dollars are in the government's
strong box that ought to be out in circula
tion buying shoes and frocks for American
babies Instead of lying Idle In the vaults
here In Washington.
Policy of Lalsses Falre.
But to revert to the 'pigeon-hole man."
He acts on the theory that in nine cases
out of ten these disputed claims if left
alone will settle themselves. Therefore he
labels them nicely, puts them In a Jacket
tied around with a profusion of red tape
and hides them wher the cobwebs can
decorate them until such time as some In
fluential congressman makes an Imperative
demand to see them. Whenever all trace of
a document in any of the departments Is
lost. It Is usually attributed to this par
ticular individual. Sometimes when inter
ested parties come to the department and
demand to see the papers In their case for
the purpose of once more pressing for ac
tion, they are requested to make them
selves comfortable until the papers (ure se
cured from the files. A messenger is sent
ostentatiously to the file clerk for the
paptrs. Patient "search" in the files pro
ducts the papers usually after the waiting
party, tired of the delay, has gone In dis
gust. Some times all parties will get to
gether and reach an agreement rather than
wait until such time aa the "pigeon-hole
mnn" will permit them to move. This par
ticular government employe may fill a use
ful and necessary niche In the government
economy, but he undoubtedly comes In for
his share of "cussing" by other officials of
Boats for Tse of Enroys.
The Mayflower and Dolphin, two of the
handsomest ; boats in the navy, are now
being prepared for the use of the Russian
and Japanese envoys when they assemble
in this country to arrange terms of peace.
Both yachts have been designated for this
duty so that it will not be necessary for
the peace plenipotentiaries of the two
countries to come together; eoclally as such
a relation during the pendency of the ne
gotiations would not be pleasant for
gentlemen charged with the duty of get
ting the best possible end of a diplomatic
bargain. The trip from Oyster bay, after
the plenlpotentiariea have met the presi
dent, to Portland. N. H., will be made In
these vessels and during the negotiations
the boats will act as the conveyance of
the foreigners between the government
Island and the city, where the envoys will
be housed. The ldeai of the government
in providing quarter on the island in
Portsmouth bay Is unique. It will guaran
tee absolute secrecy and privacy, for no
person .will be permitted on the Island
without a pass and these will be exceed
ingly difficult to obtain.
Society Is greatly Interested In the com
manding officer of the Mayflower, who is
to be Commander Cameron R. Wlnalow,
U. S. N., now on duty In Washington.
Ha will leave late this month for the
Brooklyn navy yard to take over the com
mand of the yacht. Commander Wlnalow
married the daughter of Theodore A. Have-
meyer, and through that relation haa a
wide circle of friends in New York society.
The ship he will command will have an

John Paal Joaes' Descendants.
The story telegraphed from New York
thla week that an old German by the name
of Morlts Paul claimed to be the grand
son of Paul Jones, the American admiral,
recalls the fact not generally1 known that
the late General Lew Wallace was the
grandson of a sister of that distinguished
sea fighter. Th s slst .-r was born near
Kirkbean, Scotland, and subsequently came
to this country settling in Pennsylvania.
H?re It waa that David Wallace, after
wards governor of Indiana, met and mar
ried her daughter. General Lew Wallace,
the son of the governor, waa therefore the
grandion of the sister of Paul Jones.
About this relationship there can be no
possible doubt, as the official records prove
Caearthlag the Grafters.
Not in years has Washington been so
stirred up as It has been, during the last
month or six weeks over the charges of
graft on the part of officials connected with
the several departments of the govern
ment. When the president directed an In
vestigation of the Postofflce department
neither he nor his associates ever dreamt
of the wide swathe the grafters have been
cutting in nearly all the branches of the
government service. The dismissal of the
assistant statistician of the Agricultural
department waa hardly concluded when the
special commission appointed by the presi
dent to conduct a systematic Investigation
of all' the departments began their Inquiry
with the government printing office and
already have developed a moat lamentable
condition of affairs, to say (tie least.
Shortly after the dismissal of Holmea.
assistant statistician of the Department of
Agriculture, and whom President Roosevelt
denominated a "scoundrel." rumors were
afloat to the effect that Secretary Wilson
would resign because of the gross frauds
connected with the bureau of statistics, and
cabinet reconstruction was once more
brought into prominence by reason of the
persistent reports that Secretary Wilson
would get out soon after the crop report
troubles are settled.
Among other things they are saving
against the secretary is that he la a better
scientist than disciplinarian and that his
failure to systematise the work of his big
department is looked upon as a weakness.
"The difficulty about organising the De
partment of Agriculture is a fundamental
one," said a scientist connected with this
department today. "You know we scientists
and probably the estimate Is not very far
wrong. It ) a difficult matter to organise
this class of workers, Investigators and ex
perimenter Into an effective machine.
Releatlsts Hard to Haadle.
"For Instance. I recall one case that Il

In the Agricultural dcfartnient. There Is a
bureau of soli sti'dy or something of that
sort, which has done excellent work. The
ecreta'iy discovered a man over in Mary
land who had accomplished some excellent
restina m the direction of soli inquiry and
naturally wanted that man. After some
effort he Induced the Marylander to Join
the department, but It was only on condi
tion that he should be the head of a bureau.
So the bnreuu of agricultural soils, I think
It Is called, was establtrhcd for his accom
modation. The Idea of having two such
bureaus Is, of comae, arrant nonsense. But
it wss necessary In order to satisfy the
man whose services promised mucli real
This is said lo be typical of conditions
at present exlutlng In the department and
It Is cited to show that the organisation Is
unquestionably loose and unbusinesslike.
But Secretary Wilson Is hardly responsible
for the exIxteiM-e of these unhappy condi
tions. In the larger sense It may be that
the secretary Is cjiarged with the duty of
making his department a business one, but
congress Is primarily responsible for much
that la objectionable regarding the depart
mental bureaiia In uhmttllnv tn h,ln

In many particulars as the very ablest

Senator Dolllver, who, like Secretary Wil

friend of the head of the Agricultural de
