A HOESESIAlf'S VIEW OP IT.
Yesterday a solitary horseman, worthy of
Vriding slowly down a lonely highway, with
bent bead,and thonghtfnl face," as the heroes
of Mr. G. P. B. James novels usually do,
urged his somewhat sparely-built charger
up the road which leads to the Pittsburg
cemetery Allegheny Cemetery it is called.
Biding under the handsome gateway, an ex
clamation of 'disappointment burst from
his lips. He had hoped to behold
the trees of the city of the dead clad in the
"wampua dyes" of autumn, and lot they
were ragged and bare of leaves. The winds
mind. "One doesn't feel sorry for the dead
here," he said to himself. "There is rather
a feeling of triumph that they have freed
themselves from life itself. These sepnl
chers but cover the fetters which they, the
sleepers, have cast off forever."
Anon the tombs were left behind) and the
drive reached the most beautiful portion of
the cemetery. The woods erew thicker and
more dense. A brook ran chattering
and tumbled into the prettiest cascades, and
whirled its snrface into the daintiest of dim
ples. The horse's hoofs made little sound
on the thick carpet of dead leaves dead as
the noiseless city o! slumberers itself and,
as the dusk was drawing near, the voices of
visitors had ceased to sound alone the Mll
The young moon was already white in the
sky, and away to the west there was a glori
ous hue of red, shading fast into glowing
The drive wound through broad open
spaces, and under avenues of trees, up slop
ing terraces, and into glades where fairies
might have gamboled round their mystic
rings. Then came the shimmer of water
through the leafless branches, and a little
woodland lake rippled its mimic waves at the
opening of the glen. The traveler hurried
ly reined his horse, and stayed to look upon
the scene. The light was merging fast into
darkness. The day was all but dead itself;
over the gaunt and naked trees the sky had
lost its brilliant hue, and seemed streaked
with palest pink and purple.
"Chaste Dian" had gilded her silver
shrine, and there was a" dim, uncertain
image reflected on the water's snrface. Dark
shadows were massed on the farther shore
of the lake; and behind, the valley was dim
and misty with the gloaming. It needed but

raised leg in the moonlit water,

said; "it is strangely like old Ireland. And
yet there is no touch of art about the picture.
It is all natural as natural as man's hands
can leave it I suppose all countries, like
all men, have some feature m common."
But night was at hand, and there was no
time for lingering. The stranger spurred
quickly onward, and, by many a devions
tarn, reached the drive that led to the south
ern gate. He turned on the hillside and
looked back along the narrow valley, now
gloomy and steeped in night, and then can
tered his steed toward the gateway which
reared its tall tower in the distance.
"Had a pleasant ride?" queried the man
who opened the gates.
"Yes, indeed! . ' the horseman answered.

do spend a pleasant time in the cemetery."

Tbe Annual Report or the Treasurer of the
United States The Receipts and
Expenditures Are Both
"Washington, November 10. Hon. G.
N. Huston, Treasurer of the United States,
has made a long report to the Secretary of
the Treasury of the operations of his office
during the last fiscal year, and the condition
of the Treasury June 30 last. The following
is tbe substance of the document:
The year was a remarkable one In the history
of the public finances, both the revenues and
the expenditures having been exceeded but few
times since the foundation of the Government
The former amounted to $387,050,058. and the
latter to $299,288,978, inclusive of $17,292,362 paid
In premiums on bonds purchased. The surplus
revenues. Jnne 80, were I87,761,t)60, a decrease of
S23.5S0.193 as compared with tbe year
before, counting premium on bonds as an
ordinary expenditure. On June SO. 1SSS. there
was in the Treasurer's custody in cash and
effective bonds the sum 5764,729,835 and a year
later the sum of $760,643,871. The current lia
bilities decreased in the interval from S11S.29L
847 to $127,931,880, and the reserve from San.
805,(100 to $193,097,047. The gold in the Treas
ury In excess or certificates outstanainc was
$193,610,172 in 1888, and $186,257,490 in 1BS9.
Notwithstanding the loss of gold, both in the
aggregate and in the amount not covered by
certificates, amounting to nearly 4 per cent,
the position of the Treasury was strengthened
in every respect save the amount of reserve.
The total assets, the liabilities and the reserve
all fell off about 14 per cent At the berinnine
of theyearthefreegoldwas $15,000,000 and at
the close $58,000,000 in excess of the demand
of liabilities. The unavailable funds,
exclusive of upward of $3,000,000 on

of 1636, amounted at tbe end of the year
to $1,415,433, having been decreased by an ap
propriation of $24,016 to cover losses In the New

$10,000 at San Francisco, and reported by the
Assistant Treasurer there in 1SS6. The Treas

ICOBBBSPOlTDEKCi OP IHB DISPATCH.
Washington, November 9. The famil
iar signature ot General F. B. Spinner was
seen on the register of one of the principal
hotels of Washington one day this week.
It attracted almost as much attention as the
autograph of the President of the United
States attached to an official document. It
was for years one of the most familiar speci
mens of chirography known to the Ameri
can people. It is a signature which is al
most beyond analysis, t think that the
compositor of the New York Trt&tme who
once said that Belshaxiar would have been
more frightened than he was had he seen
Horace Greelev's handwriting on the wall,
would have been appalled if he had had to
handle "copy" nn the plan of General Spin
General "Sninner's handwriting was not!
all like that signature. Tlie signature!
was a thing which he had cultivated by
long practice, with a view to preventing a
connterfeit reproduction. At the time he
devised it he used to sign all the National
bank notes as Treasurer of the United
States. Now that they are signed by
machinery, this device is not necessary.
EAST TO COtrNTEfiFEIT.
The signature to a bank note is the thing
most easily counterfeited. Those who are
engaged in the detection of counterfeit
money devote more time to the examination
of the straight and curved lines made by the
engraver's tool and the geometric lathe than
they do to the irregular lines of the signa
ture. Before the engraving of bank notes was
reduced to such a science, . however, and
when the notes were all signed by hand, the
signature was a matter of much more im
portance It was General Spinner's "fly-
track" signature that brought him into
prominence during the long period of his
service as Treasurer of the United States.
There was one act of his official career,
however, which brought him into general
prominence even more strongly than did his
peculiar signature. He will always be re
membered eratefully in Washington as the
public official who first suggested the ad
visability of employing women to do gov
ernment work in the departments.
A GREAT DIFFEEENCE HOW.
Before his time, there was hot a woman
in the public service. There are now more
than 4,000 women working under salary
frcm the Government in Washington alone,
and new spheres of usefulness for them are
being discovered every day. The idea was
suggested to General Spinner by the ex
igencies due to the Civil War. So many of
the employes of the Government were called
into service in the field at that time, that
many of the departments were crippled.
General Spinner suggested to Secretary
Chase that the vacant places be filled by the
appointment 61 women. The suggestion
met with severe criticism and much opposi
tion at first,' but the necessity was so great
that objections were overruled, and woman
got her first foothold in the departments.
Women now constitute more than 25 per
cent of the working force of the Govern
ment in Washington, and their services in
certain branches of work are recognized as
far superior to those of men. They receive
salaries ranging from 600 to $1,800 a year.
In the work for which they are best adapted
they will accomplish more and do it :

employed id this capacity before, but Dr.
Dorchester says the experiment has been an

In appointing his wife to the position of

tbe last session of Congress Mrs. Beagan
drew 540 a week as her husband's private
secretary, and was entitled, under a strict
construction of the rules, to the privilege of
the Senate floor. Mrs. Beagan preferred to

rSFEClU. TELEQILIII TO TUB SISPATCS.1
Baltimore, November 9. Dar Wing Sing"
who condncted the only Chinese barber shop in
this city, and the best educated of all tbe Mon
goliansnere, is dead. For four years he had
pursued his calling here and made his services
Indispensable. Believing in protection to
Chinese as welt as to American industries.
Wing Sing, upon his advent into Baltimore,
speedily coralled all the trade in bis line and
the two Or three barbers of his nationality who
had hitherto divided the tonsorial practice
among themselves speedily abdicated in favor
of the adept Wine Sing. For the past tivo
months Wing Slnghas been ill. Toe Immediate
cause of death was pericarditis, superinduced
by kidney trouble. On Monday his remains
will be shipped to San Francisco and interred
In that City.
Der Wing Sing was 42 years old and a splendid
Specimen ot the leading Chinamen. He was a
native of a village near Canton. In his yonth
.he attended several of the best schools in
Canton and its vicinity and received a full col
legiate education. Among his countrymen he
was Considered an authority on Confucius,
whose writings forms the main study in tbe
curriculum of Chinese colleges. Fifteen years
ago Vet Wing Sing sailed for Saa Francisco,
and shortly after his arrival became a noted
merchant in the Chinese colonv in that city.
Later he lived In Mew York, and for the past
four years he has resided In Baltimore. He
has a family In China.
$66,S40,9&0 of their bonds held by the Treasury
During the year the NatlonalBanks withdrew

There remained at the close $143,ia,4507belone

and (45.222,000 belonging to 270 banks as
Becurltyfor deposits. The report shows the
minimum limit of bonds for the present capital
of the banks was Only abunt $50,000,000 or $00,
000,000 below the amount now on deposit. The
amount of public moneys held by depositary
banks ran doirn from $53,712,511 to $47,259714,
the result mainly of the voluntary acts of 'the
banks in surrendering the deposits and with
drawing their bonds. The semi-annual
tax on circulation amounted to $1,410,
831 for tbe year. The net deposits
during the year amonnted to $32,484,415, of
which sum $29,583,680 was for the reduction of
the circulation in active banks. The question
whether national banks should be required tp
redeem unsigned notes stolen from them and
put into circulation has been considered, and

Mr. Nemo met group after group, along the

might easily have mistaken the place for

DAT AND SCENE IN HAKMONT.
It was not a frosty day; but there was a
decided hint of coming frost in the air. Over
tbe fir-clad hills the leaden sky brooded
heavily, and there was just sunshine
enough to make one look for a splendid
sunset by and by.
The grass was clipped short upon the
slopes and the railed tombs were kept with
the extreme of neatness. It seemed a pleas
ant place to be laid to rest in a calm soli
tnde in which to sleep death's long.and may
tap dreamless, sleep. There was melan
choly in the scene, it is true; but not that
iuelancholy which strikes us in other rest

eight or nine hours, They originally re

big Bureau of Engraving and Printing,

act as "helpers" at the printing presses, and
they are employed to the exclusion of men
in operating machines with which the bank
notes are numbered. Not only do they at
tain to a greater degree of swiftness and
accuracy in the particular work to which,
tney are assignea, out tney are mucn more
responsible than men. The number of fe
male criminals is very small.
NOT ADEPTS IN THAT WAT.
Woman's faculty for devising methods to
defraud is not verv well developed. When
women are wicked, it is generally not in the
direction of dishonesty. Although they
would not cheat Uncle Sam ot his money,
however, they are not all averse to stealing a
little of his time. Those who occupy clerical
positions are notoriously slow, unless they
are Carefully watched. What thev do. how
ever, is not done in a slovenly way, as is too
often true of the work of their fellow clerks
of the other sex. They will insist upon be
ginning to arrange their hair and preparing
for departure 15 minutes before the clock
strikes 4; for a Government clerk would
consider herself much abused if she was
compelled to stay in her office two minutes
beyond the hour for closing.
Nearly one-third of the total number of
employes of the Government in this city
can be found in the Bureaus of the Treasu
ry Department. Almost as great a nnmber
are employed in the Interior Department.
MOSTLY IN THE TBEABUBT.
But it is in the Treasury Department that
most of the women are found. The Agri
cultural uepanmeni employs .Very lew, al
though the pretty seed clerk is a favorite
subject for the paragrapher. During the
season when seeds are distributed, there are
about 100 women employed putting them up
in form for mailing. The place where
women apply most often for employment is
the Government Printing Office. This office
is not under the jurisdiction of the Civil
Service Commission, and there are em
ployed in it nearly 1,000 women. They do
all sorts of work, both clerical and ntpohon.
leal. In the Bureau of Entrravin? anrl
Printing are employed less than 500 women.
The bureau, however, is under civil service
rule, and appointments to positions there
are made from the list of eligibles who have
passed the civil service examination. Some
of the positions in the Government Printing
Office for which women are fitted are very
desirable, and one of the greatest difficul
ties with which the Public Printer has to
cope is the constant effort on the part of
men in public life to obtain appointments
to these positions for women.

In the ears, sometimes a roarine, buzzing
sound, or snapping like the report of a pistol,
are caused by catarrh, that exceedingly dis
agreeable and very common disease. Loss of
smell or hearing also results from catarrh.
Hood's Sarsapartlla, the great blood purifier, is
a peculiarly successful remedy for catarrh,
which It cures by eradicating from the blood
the impurity which causes and promotes this
disease. Try Hood's Sarsaparilla.
1 nsed Hood's Sarsaparilla for catarrh, and
received great relief and benefit from it The
catarrh was very disagreeable, especially in
tbe winter, causing constant discbarge from

WHO HAVE THE PBEFEBElfCE.
A very just rule of the departments is
that preference shall be given at all times
to unmarried women and widows. In facf
a married woman very seldom obtains a
position of any character if her marriage is
known. Instances are quoted of clerks who
married those who were employed in the
same office with them, and who successiully
concealed the fact of the marriage for an
indefinite period. The most prominent
tnarried woman now in the service ot the
Government is the wife of General Morgan,
Commissioner ot Indian Affairs, who acts
as private secretary to her husbaml. The
