Secretary of tho Treasury Falrchild's report on tho finances of the country says that tho ordinary rev- enues of tho Government from all sources for the fiscal year endod Juno SO, 1887,were 0, and tho ordinary expenditures for the same porlod $316,830,428.12, leaving a sur- plus of $55,607,849.54, which, with an amount drawn from tho cash balanco in the Treasury of $21,455,720.40, makes a surplus of $80,023,-67- 0 in tho Treasury, as compared with tho fiscal year 1880, the recoipts for 1887 havo in- creased $34,903,550.00. Thero was an in the expenditures of $25,419,011.47. The revenues for the present actual and cstim&tod fiscal year aro $383,000,000, and tho expenditure for same period, actual and estimated, aro $310,817,785.43 of the surplus revenue Secretary Fairohild says: \Taxation and currency reform were tho questions which my distinguished predecessor dcemod to be of most pressing importance, and to thorn he devoted a large part of tho two annual ro- - torts which ho mado to tho Congress, J n thoso reports ho stated his honest convictions with a vigor and boldness which together with tho ability and fairness that ho showed in the goneral management of this department havo given him a high plnco among statesmen and financiers. I find tho same subjects to bo still tho most important of all those to which it is my duty to call your attention, and it is not necessary to do other- wise than follow tho general lines laid down by bim in treating them. Circumstances have heightened tho immediato urgency of taxation reform as affecting tho surplus rovcuues of the Government. Tho urgonoy is so great that tho question of surplus rovenues demands tho earnest attention of both tho legislative and executive branches of tho Government. \ What shall bo done with this surplus reve- nue ? It comes into the Treasury in the form of gold coin, silver coin, gold cer- tificates and United States notes. The Government provides, at large annual cost, mints and a bureau of engraving and printing to coin and print these various forms of money and represen- tations of money, that there may be a suffl-cie- nt circulating medium in tho hands of our pooplo to enable them to conveniently exchange tho products of , their labor among thomselvos and with the pcoplo of tho world. If wo take into the Treasury large amounts of those circulating media, in excess of what .we pay out, thero will soon not be money enough in tho hands of the pooplo for the purposes of business : scrlouB derangement and disaster must follow, and n portion of labor must ceaso until the vcrv evils which this wrong condi- tion creates shall havo worked a temporary cure by so diminishing the consumption of food, clothing, fuel and luxuries, by the taxation of which tho revenues of the Government aro raised, that taxes do not exceed the expenditures of Government. This ovll and this cure every one wishes to avoid. There are various expedients by which this may be done. ; 1st. Tho purchase of tho interest-bearin- g debt of tho Government. 2d. Larger expenditures by Government for other purposes than tho purchase of bonds, bo that thoy Bhall each year equal tho taxa- tion of that year. 3d. Reduction of the revenue from taxation to tho amount actually required to moet necessary expenses. All of these expedients have in common tho one merit of preventing tho derangement to business whion must follow hoarding or locking up in tho Treasury tho circulating media of tho pooplo. Secretary Fairchild thon goes on to discuss the expedients to prevent the derangement of business enumerated abovo. Concerning the reduction of revenue he says: \ Itoduction of the rovenue from taxa- tion is the only fit remedy for the ovlls which threaten tho country. This may bo accom- plished in various ways. \One which has boon proposed is to compol S decrease of importation, and consequently decrease of rovenuo from customs, by l&rgoly increasing tho rates of duties. This plan oould bo made to reduco tho customs revenue, but it would increase the people's taxation far more than it would decreaso tho rovenues, and should not be adopted. Still another is to have less customs taxa- tion by adding to the free list as many articles ns possible, llo urges the reduction of tho tariff on wool. Speaking of the coinage of silver dollars ho says : \ Tho law should be so amended as to authorize tho Secretary of tho Treasury to issuo certificates ngainBt the coinago valuo of tho bullion bought, and to coin only suoh 1 number of dollars as ho might doom expe dient hereafter.\ BENJAMIN SAID HE FELL TOWN. The Police Hay Thero la no Evidence to Bhotv That lie vrui Assaulted. Ilerman Benjamin, the Forsyth street fur- rier, who was piokod up by tho Eldridgo Etroot police early Monday morning with a broken skull, is still at the Gouverneur Hos- pital in a state of unconsciousness. j House Surgeon Holman thinks that his chances of recovery are slight and says that he may dio His entire family visited him this morning at tho hospital. Cant. Allaire, of the Eldridgo streot station, says that thore is no evidence that any of Benjamin's friends assaulted him, and that no Btops have been taken to moke any arrests in tho case, lleniaminwBS ablo to talk when ho was brought to tho station, and ho said nothing about having been assaulted, but told tho Sergeant that bo had fallen down and hurt himself. The skull is fractured just behind the right car, and the wound might easily havo been recoived from a fall. s u Many Eligible to be Policemen.

Tho Court of Inquiry whioh was organized yestorday, mot y at 11 o'olock at tho Navy - Yard, to Investigate tho recent salo of condemned material. Commander McCnlln, Frosident, Fay-maste- Carmody and Harris, and Lieut. Lumly, who officiated as Judgo Associate, hold a session with closed doors until nearly noon. Summoning witnecsos is the next step, Admiral Gherardi and Capt. Cook head- ing tho list. \ I don't caro to say anything about tho caso, as I may be called as witnoss,\ said Admiral Gherardi to a Wonu reporter, bo-fo- tho court of iifquiry met. \ It is a good thing to havo tho old rubbish gono, and I was thunderstruck about Stephenson, who has always borno a good record.\ Tho \ precept \ authorizing tho court of inquiry to investigate tho matter doos not charge John Stephenson with anything, but merely \ enjoins an investigation of the rocont salo of condemnod material,\ which ocourred at tho Navy-Yar- d about a month ago. Mr. Stephenson was in his office He is indignant at tho insinuation against himself, but calm and ironical. \ I court tho fullest investigation,\ said ho. \ I om rnoro interested than anybody elso in having all tho facts come out. I range mysolfwith tho court against Stephenson, and shall not bo without somo shot to fire myself. Tho Itiohmond's boilers wore not in the catalogue of tho sale. But thoy woro utterly worthless. I told Chief En. gineer Mclvillo about them when ho was here prior to tho salo, and ho said, ' Soil them.' Ho added : ' Do it according to law.' Now, whether I did it according to law is tho conundrum tho court has to guess. \ Every salo of this kind has to bo signed by tho commandant or captain. I don't handle tho monoy. Tho boilers had to bo moved, and it would havo cost $1,000. I waited six or seven weeks for bids on them, and it was the fifth offer which I accepted. I thought I was saving tho Government $1,400. \ You saw Sccrotary Whitney's second let- ter.

Tho first information that Henry Martin Jackson, the defaulting paying tcllor of the who fled two months ago with $10,000 of Government money, is now in Winnipeg, Manitoba, was ,'givon to the off- icials hero by Tns Would this morning. Up to this time Jackson had evaded tho polico of tho United States and of tho Prov- inces, and his whereabouts was a com- plete mystery. Thero is. howover, little chanco that tho fugitive will bo brought back to answer for his crime, as ho took tho to change tho stolen monoy for Brit, ish coin before he went across tho border, in order to ovoid tho possibility of being ar- rested for having brought stolen goods into tho country. It is said that Congress will be asked to re- imburse Assistant Treasurer Cauda for tho loss by Jackson's theft, M m TROTTING MEN IN COUNCIL.

Quinn, Master Workman of District Assembly No. 49, of tho Knights of Labor, had ap- plied to Justlco Stockier for appointment as Assistant Clerk of tho Fourth Judicial District Court, and that it had been refused. Several men prominent in organized labor circles declared it to bo a fact and said that neither Quinn nor Justico Stockier would affirm it, but it was truo, nevertheless. Lawyer Charles Steoklor, tho Justice's brother, was soon by a Would roportor and he said that there was no truth in the report and that tho reporter could wager $1,000 of Lawyer Steoklcr's money against u cent of any other person's that Quinn had not applied for a position as Clerk of Justico Stockler's court.

Young Hawkins was arrested for tho mur--d- and placed in jail to await trial. The case was called at Itiverhead on Monday. A jury was socurod at midnight of that day. Tho taking of testimony was begun yoster-da- Tho most important witness wns young Hawkins, who was called in hiB own dofenso. Ho seemed to bo without emotion of any kind. Ho gnvo by way of testimony a description of the murder sotnowhnt similar to the accounts of it published at tho timo that it occurred. Ho said that he called on his mother to talk over hisengagcmentwithnattioSohenck. Ho took his mother out to drivo. Ab thoy drovo along she naked him about his ninrriago, and objoetod to his choice on tho ground that Hottio Schonck was a person of low character. When sho spoke of Hattie's character ho drow his re. volver from hiB overcoat pockot and shot her. Sho did not speak or ntovo after tho shot was fired. When Justico Brown openod court this morning tho crowd of slglit-eeor- s was so Srcnt that the Sheriff was obliged to closo tho in their faces. At 8.30 they swormed about tho building in largo numbers, uniting eagerly for anj; littlo bit of information from the murder trial that wns going on within.

In his speech to the jury he enlarged upon tho theory of young Hawkins's mental unsouudness.urging that he wasnot strictly responsible for his act, which, ho claimed, was committed while tho young man was Buffering from mental aberra- tion.

SAFE BREAKERS FRIGHTENED. An Attempt to Dreak Into tbe Rtrona; Box of Typographical Union No. O. An unsuccessful attempt was mado last night to rifle tho safe of Typographical Union No. 0, whoso headquarters aro in Frankfort street, near Gold. Tho safo is an clumsy affair, with combination lock, and it was against tho lattor that tho bnrglars diroctcd their labors. Two holes woro bored in tho door, botli at tho outor edgo of tho combination. Ono went clear through tho double platings, but the second passed ono-ha- lf way through. Everything was apparently ready for tho blast which was to completo tho job when thothloves wore frightenod away. In ono of tho borings was found powder enough to blow open a dozen safes, as Secre- tary Wildman Raid, while in the socond was tho remnant of a bit, two inches long and about a quarter of nn inch in diameter. Assistant Secretary Thomas J. ltobinson discovered tho attempt early this morning, Whon the safo men arrived tho door was openod without recourse to tho combination, though the burglars failed to mako usq of that circumstance. There was somo monoy in tho safe at the timo. Had tho burglnrs mado their visit on Saturday thoy would havo found more than $1,000 in the safe.

A meeting of tho omployoos of tho various liveries is called for Sunday in Beckor's Hall. It is said that tho hands attached to somo of tho leading stables aro opposed to a striko, and will do all in their power to pro-ve- nt ono, but tho largo majority of tho 6,000 cabmen and hostlers are in favor of enforc- ing their demands.

Do Lnucoy, who is urging tho criminal prosecution ot Jay Oould and llUBsoll Sago for an alleged conversion in 1879, to their own uso, of a largo block of Kansas Fnciflo Itailrond stock held by them in trust, has presented an additional brief to the District-Attorne- The document is n cleverly constructed argument combating tho position of tho accused parties that if tho crime of grand lar- ceny has bcon committed an indictment will not lio, fivo yearn having olnpsod Binco tho commission of tho alleged criminal act, which lapse of tinio 1b a bar toproseeution under the provislonsof tho Codo of Criminal Procedure. Mr. Do Lnncpy cites no cnt.es in point ami nrgucs from tho standpoint of n civil practi- tioner that tho Stntuto of Limitations docx not run ns against tho crime of embezzle-liien- t from tho time of tho conversion to tho uses of tho embezzler, but from tho time of tho discovory of such oiubnzzlctncut by tho cesttliqua trust. Hu alleges that tho statute makes conversion one crime, secret- ing tho converted property another nnd tho withholding still another, and thus more ttmii liinlH that tho injured party eim givo tho crime now life as ngninst the Statute of Limitations by demanding the converted property, the withholding thereof aftpr such demand constituting a frcBli crime, or rather continuing an old offenso. It is also suggested thnt tho stntuto consti- tuting embezzlement, grand larceny nnd a f olony wns made for tho purpose of providing a means, through criminal prosecution, for tho collection of monoy or tho return of goods or securities thus foloniously obtained. Assistant District-Attorno- v Davis, who lias tho complaint ngainst Oould nnd Sago under consideration, Kays that it is n very elosn question and one thnt should not bo passed over lightly. It must bo remembered that every caso of larceny possesses tho throe elements spe- cially mentioned in tho crime of embozzlo. ment wrongful appropriation, secretion nnd withholding, and yet no ono would eouteud that a man who steal n n watch, hides and keeps tho snmo, could bo indicted and pun- ished for moro than tho one olTouso. Did tho Legislature, then, in mentioning specifically tho threo elements of larceny in tho statute against embezzlement, intend to do other than to define grnnd larceny, or did it create three distinct and separate offenses and mnkei provision allowing n complainant to revivify or create n crime \at any timo ho pleased by demanding tho return of goods withheld ? Thoso aro tho questions to bo detcrminod. Sir. Davis will probably dispoBo of tho case next week after ho has been rolieved from attendance at tho trial of cases in Fart II. of tho Court of General Sessions. m m MAJOR HAGGEKTY'S TLUCK. tlralns nn Operation 'Which, If Unsuccessful, Would L'auso Inatnnt Denlb. Major Haggorty is slowly sinking, his phy. sicians Bay, and it is feared that he will not live through tho day. Dr. 0. E.

Thero is n largo gland- ular swelling on his nock, his loft eyo is closed, and his condition is bo painful thnt ho is unablo to sleep. Ho has bcon kopt alivo only by hypodormio injections. Two operations which woro porformod yes- torday relioved tho Major temporarily. An oporatiou of n vory precarious naturo, which will havo tho effect either of materially ini- - roving his condition or of causing instant 8 eath, is under advisement. Up to this morning his physicians have not dared to at- tempt it, although Major Hnggorty has ex- pressed a wish to havo it done. Major Haggerty has been very cheerful since tho first day of his illness. As an illus- tration of his will-powe- r, his friends any that yesterday ho sat up in bed and trimmed his inustacho.

(srrctAf. to Tint wom.n.l F,i,izaiictii, N. J., Dee. \.Tho nmhulnnco attached to tho Elizabeth general hospital was mobbed by nn incited crowd of pcoplo at Kliznhethport last night. Harry Keeiinn, tho driver, together with tho horses, barely escaped with their 11 es. Tho trouble originated over tho removal of an injured man to the hospital. Patrick McVeigh, of l'JOl Uerks street, l'hiladolphia, ago twcnty-seve- ii years, a fireman on n Heading road engine, was leaning out of tho locomotive cab when another ctiglno that was running off tho turn-tahl- o nt tho coal-shut- struck him, knocked 1dm out of tho cab nnd partly under tho wheels. Ho wns dragged somo distimcn boforo the engine was stopped, lie was mortally injured. McVeigh's .body was quickly extrirntcd, and'n meswigo wur hent to Kllrnhcth, two miles distant, for tho ambulance. Meanwhile a big crowd gathered at tho scene, nnd when thn vehicle nrrived men in the crowd insisted that tho injured mnn should bo taken direct to Father Oessner's house. This Mr. Keeiinn rofuseii to do, alleging that tho priest had ample timo to see tho man before tlio ambulance armed, nnd that it was his duty to he on lmnd whon culled. The excited mob caught hold of tho bridln of the horses, while pome armed themselves with stones nnd threatened to knock tho driver oir tho box if ho did not comply with their demand. Kecnun whipped up his horses and tried to drivo through thn crowd. This mado tho men furious, and they closed in around tho nmhulnnco, throw tho horses back on their haunches uud tried to drag Koeuan from his soat. Bloodshed was only averlod by tho timely arrival on the hceno of Dr. O'ltelllv, who rushed among tho enraged men ami begged them for G d's snko to dosist. His appeals were eventually successful and tho nmbttlanco wns allowed to depart. Tho hospital authorities nro highly indig- nant over tho affair. Thoy ascribe it to prcjudico nguinst the institution on tho part of pooplo who think that Catholics will not got proper attention thore. They sny that no Catholic is over neglected or permitted to dio without tho services of n priest aud that Fnthor Van Schilgen is nlwavs summoned in serious cases, such as railroad accidents, nnd that ho was at the hospital before tho umbulanco got back from Ulizabuthport. Mrs. Thompson, tho matron, said to a Would roportor that a very hitter and tin- - fooling had bcon stirred up against tho lospitnl by persons. THE DEAD MAN NOT QUESTIONED.

Mr. Forker smiles incredulously at this rumor, aud his smile is broader because Col. Fellows has assured him of his retention, Mr. Mitchell has assured him of his lack of in- tention nnd besides on ollice with n salary of $4,500 would hardly bo a bono of contention with a gentleman whoso income from olllcial sources is nt present about 012,000, as Mr. Mitchell's is.
