forts scattered Shells into every section

During the earlier part of the day the
imperialists attempted a sortie against
the attacking forces, with a view to re
.capturing their position and guns, but
- were driven back ill aide the walls with
considerable .losses. 1 The Tiger-; Hill
batteries,' meanwhile, were, pounding
shells into Lion Hill. , They succeeded
-in siTenoing the batteries there which,
it is suspi cted, wereof little value.
The Qbj act of4 the "seizure of Tiger

of four cruisers, end Uter'in the day of

Departuieuts. Red Tape Causes
Waste. What . Commission
. Has Found..
Washington, Nov. 28th. Burdened
with years of moss laden tradition and
held fast in meshes of red tape, the U.
Sgovernmentli' following a wasteful
system of administration which in its
sum total dwarfs the extravagances of
all history, Gleaned from a thousand
leaks, the governmental waste express
ed in money re tehee a staggering sum.
It is known that the commission has
found a large percentage of wasted en
ergy and money in every department of
the government. Just what the gener
al average is has n t yet been Btruck,
but a comparatively small percentage
oT money waste on the enormous busi
ness conducted will reach staggering
figures in the aggregate. It takes more
than a billion dollars a year to run the
ordinary affairs of the government. In
addition about three billions more pa?s
in and out of the departments. The
commission has found that with every
movement of these tremendous amounts
there is waste, and that wasted efforts
involving waste of money has grown
up around every function of national
' Too many false motions in the con
duct of the government's business too
much use of the hands, and not enough
of lhj head together with the hamper
ing oi administrative reform by the te
nacious hold of archaic methods is said
to be at the root of the trouble. For
instance, the commission has discovered
that no fewer than eighteen intricate
and entirely different systems of book
keeping are in vogue in the treasury
department. This necessitates the
same work being done over and over
again at a great cost in time and labor.
It will recommend that this complex
mass bs simplified into one system. The
congressional "pork barrel" will come
in for the commisiiion's condemnation.
The greater part of the annual -distri
bution of about $G0, 000,000 in congress
ional district appropriations is declared
to be absolute w.iste, with further
waste occuring in the handling of each
dor I ion which the district gets.
Condition?, such as senator LaFollette
discusses in his autobiography will be
gone into ia the report. When the Wis
consin senator first went to Congress,
the government was renting postal ser
vice cars from the railroads for $500,
000 more annually thn it would coat
to build, equip aud keep the cars in re
pair. He declared that when he re
turned to the seriate seventeen years
later the same rental was still being
paid, and in spite of his effoi ts to get a
change, the matter is still left to be
threshed out in ths next Congress. The
same conflict of method and in many
cases duplication of woric that exists
with the treasury department has been
fourd throughout. The waste does not
exist in Washington only, but extends
wherever the government sails a ship
or has a task. In some places the waste
is comparatively trivial, and in others
the average is brought up by the exist
ence of costs that can be totally elimi
nated. In conjunction with ths plans
of secretary of the navy Meyer to plaee
his department on a better business
plane, the commission has worked out
an elaborate report, in which the exec
utive can find at a clance the needless
details of administration aid eliminate
thorn. The s m plan is to be applied
to other departments. .

that Deputy Jordan was wounded in

To Pay Expenses Justice Depart
ment. Attorney General's
Washington, Nov. 29th. Attorneyv
General Wickeraham in his annual re
port which has been submitted to the
President, states that in the last fiscal
cat year hit department has been self
sustaining. The Attorney General also
states that during the year a little mora
than 4,000,000 in the nature of fines
was collected by his deparment, and
that this more than paid the expenses.
Last year the Department of Justice
collected $3,600,000 in fines. It was not
quite enough to balance the expenses
of different bureaus of the department.
The fines collected in both years were
from half a hundred different sources,
but the bulk of them came from timber
and public land cases and trust prosecu
tions. Attorney-General Wickersham
saya that hit report contains a state
ment showing just what had been ac
complished in the line of trust and oth
er prosecutions the department has
brought during the year.

Trust and the Harvester Trust, the
Attorney General says no definite de
cisions have been reached. He said he
could not say at this time, because hu
did not know whether all three of the
corporations named would dissolve with
out litigation. He siid the negotia

corporations looked to a dissolution
without any more court fighting were
on still. From other sources in the de

weeks; that the government and the
