They Were Only Dispersed by 
a Shower of Lead. 

Wtnaton, X. C. -Vuff. 12.— A serious 
riot bftwwn whiter and black.-* was nar- 
rowly averted here last night. It was 
given cut in colored rhurcht-s during the 
day that an attempt was going to be 
made to lynch Arthur Tuttle. a negro 
on trial here for the murder of Police- 
man Vicktrs lust May. After church 
about 150 negroes organized and 
n«arched to the jail, wh»re they re- 
mained for s» veral hours. They were 
armed with pistols and puns. Mayor 
Clray went to the jail and assured the 
negroes thert- was no danger of lynch- 
ing and ^K'ggi 'I tht-m t<* disperse. 

Sheriff McArthur and two of Win- 
ston's lawyers also a'Mnssed the 
Tjegroes, assuring them th»re was no 
danger of lynching. Judge Brown notl- 
tted the negroes they were violating the 
law, telling them that Tuttle should 
have a fair trial arid that he would be 
responsible for Tuttles protection. The 
n»*grues said they would leave If the 
sheriff would put a guard of twenty 
men anxund the jail. This was done, 
but many of the members of the gang 
refused to go away. Sheriff McArthur 
then ordered out deputies, who were 
sworn in. Judge Brown also Instructed 
the sheriff to arrest those who did not 
leave. The mob began firing on the 
offloers. several of whom were struck 
with small bird shot, but none seriously 
wounded. The riflemen fired several 
volleys Into the crowd, causing the 
negrf»*^ to disperse in quick order. 
Fourteen of the rioters were arrested 
by the oflk-^rs and put in Jail. Every- 
thing WTas quiet at 10 o'clock this morn-

Washington, Aug. 12.— Acting Secre- 
tary Adee hastily scanned the cable 
from Tien Tsin and announced that 
lie ha<^ nothing: to' say further than was 
contained In th«> following statement: 

"The state deiKirtment has recelv»tl a 
report from .Minister lienby relating to 
the instructions cabl<>d to him on Aug. 
7 relative to the Ktu>ting of American 
missionary' property at Yung Fuh. Mr. 

IK'nby urgently rcprescnti'd the facts 
to the yamen itn Aug. 10 and obtained 
pi-omise of prot«>ction. Yung Fuh is be- 
lieved by the officers of the state depart- 
ment to be the same as Sung Fuh and 
Inghok mentioned in the press tele- 
grams, the variations In the name being 
doubtless due to error through trans- 
mission over the trans-Siberian cable, 
in the course of which many transciii>- 
tlons and r»:pt«tltions are necessary," 

Acting Secretary McAdtH), of the navy 
dtpaitment. in'a<l the dispatch with a 
great deal of interest, and said the navy 
w.i.s doing all It could to co-operate with 
the state dipaiinient and to place the 
American wai^hips in Chinese waters 
where they wouhl be available for the 
[rrotection of American inter»*8ts. The 
navy department re<^'eived this morning 
from Admiral t'an>enter a cablegram 
announcing that he had dispatchi'd the 
Detroit itol F<h> t'how, whiih is the near- 
est i»olnt for that ve.^wd to reach the 
s<'ene of the r«xent disturliances. A 
cai)le wan* received this morning from 
Capt. Newell, commanding the Detroit, 
announcing bis arrival today at Pagoda, 
which Is the anchorage altout two miles 
Iwlow the city of Fo«> Chow. Another 
cable was received from Admiral Car- 
penter announcing his departure frrun 
.Vaga.sakl for Che Foo, China. Che 
Fot. b» the nearest point for communi- 
cation with the American minister at 

The department has totlay cabled 
Admiral Car|»-nter regarding matters 
in China, advising him to keep in dose 
and constant c<>mmuni<-ation with Min- 
ister Denby. The ilispatch from Minis- 
ter Denby Is of very little Importance 
in the way of furnishing information, 
l>ut indicates that th*- .\meri<^an minis- 
ter d>H-v not .share the views of (fther 
citizens in China whi> think that re- 
prisals should be made. 

It Is claimed that all that couhl be 
done has been done, tmless the policy 
of the government shouM be to begin 
hostilities every time there was any 
trouble with Amerl<an citizens In any 
foreign land. It is said that the only 
way |>osslble for this g(»vernment to 
proceed Is through its diplomatic ofll- 
cers. the way in which we should re- 
'luin? a foreign government to j»rt>ceed 
in case property or lives nt foreigners 
in this cf)untry were in danger or de- 
stro\ed. In this connection attention 
\n ciille I to the fact that In the case of 
the Matia riot all correspon<lence was 
through tlie department. 

A high!offl(dal of the nsivy said that it 
woulft not be right for th»" I'nited States 
war vess<ds to begin bombarding Chin- 
ese towns and people wh<) are entirely 
Innocent, becaus*- the riots have taken 
r>lace in the interii)r, e«iH-cially when 
the (Chinese government has alre.uly as- 
sured our minister that everyithing |h>s- 
silde will be done to prevent further 
trouble and 'to bring the offenders to

Great Britain WilljNot Help the 
New Cable Line. 

Vancouver, R. C. Aug. 12.— Post- 
master Ceneral Wnrd hiis instructed his 
government that the expected additional 
sultsidy fmm Great Britain to the Can- 
adian-Australian cable line would not 
be forthcoming. Sir Am >ld Mtirley. the 
British postmaster general, told him that 
the iMilicy of the British Kovernment was 
to maintain to the utmuxt jHissible elli- 
dency the service via Suez, on account 
of British interest in the i:a8t and India 
l)eing paramount to all others. The 
postmaster general was ligliting against 
any attempt to subsidize ur aid the Can- 
adlan-.Australlan line between Vancou- 
ver and Australia, for one reason be- 
cause the Canadians hal gone to other 
members of the cabinet instead of first 
consulting him. 

New Zealand and Canada were 
pledge<l to give certain aid to a Pacitli" 
cable providing the I'.rltlsh govern- 
ment gave the aid expected. It is 
feared by those favorin-r the Canadian 
cal)le that Audley Coutes. the head of 
the big French syndicate, will surely 
lay a cable between San Francisco and 
Australia and H<molulu. 

A free trade treaty Is al>out consum- 
mated between Canada .ind New Zeal- 
and. The tariff is mainly free trade In 
respect to many cla.sses of natural pro- 
ducts and manufactures, hut In a few 
lines there are ad valorem duties of from 
10 to 25 |H'r cent. One ol the chief Items 
is wool, of which Canada imp()rted from 
New Zealand last year Uiiwards of 3,000,- 
000 pounds. Duty on ttiis was 3 cents 
per pound, so thiVt the r mission of this 
means a very conslderal)le gain. Among 
the other lines dealt with are lumber. 
Hour, tlsh, llax, machinery, tools and Im- 
;.lements, furniture, etc.

Officers of the American Bi- 
metallic League Watch- 
ing Mr. Towne's Views. 


Are Confident the Agitation 
Will Result in Silver Be- 
ing Remonetized. 

Ex-Congressman Hall of the 

Third District After the 


"VS'ashhigton, Aug. 12.— (Special to The 
HtM-ald.) — At the head«iuarters of th'- 
American Bimetallic league in Wash- 
injirton the question was asked of The 
Herald correspondent today whether 
Congressman Towne. of the Sixth Min- 
nesota district, would attend the silver 
conference to assemble in Washington 
on Wednesilay. Aujr. 14. The represen- 
tative of The Herald, not having any 
knoi\*'ledge of Mr. Towne's intentions, 
could not answer the question. It is evi- 
dent, however, thai the officers of this 
league have been watching with a great 
dee.1 of interest the views of Mr. Towne 
In Minnesota regarding the silver issue 
in that state. They have undoubtedly 
discovered that he is about the only 
man in the next congressional delega- 
tion from the North Star state who is 
in clos»e touch with the silver sentiment 
throughout the country. 

They have read the newspaper com- 
ments in the Twin City papers regard- 
ing Mr. Towne's attitude, and from 
these comments have arrived at the con- 
clusion that the Duluth congressman 
has stirred up a great deal of interest 
in favor of the white metal, not only in 
his own congressional district, but 
throughout Minnesota and the entire 
Northwest as well. The agitation be- 
gun by Mr. Towne, the officials of the 
American Bimetallic league think, will 
result in great benefit to the cause they 
represent in this section of the country-. 

The storj' has heretofore been tele- 
graphed The Herald that not only the 
officials of this league, but the silver 
leaders in both houses of congress, have 
heard with a great deal of interest that 
the bright young congressman from the 
Sixth Minnesota district is an earnest. 
abWand fearless advoca/te for the recog- 
nition of the white metal, and that he 
■will probably become one of the strong- 
est fighfters in the next congress to ad- 
vance the interests of free silver coin- 
age at a fair ratio. It is possibly true 
that the m<M\ who believe in bimetallism 
as Mr. Towne is said to do will not suc- 
ceed in cajT>'ing through their plans in 
the Fifty-fourth congress, but the agita- 
tion that will be kept up during the 
coming session is certain, it is believed, 
result in something substantial in

votes of defeating him. This was the 
nearest approach to a Democratic vic- 
tory in Minnt^ota in recent yeai"s. Mr. 
Hall, it is said, believes he can do bet- 
ter than Dr. Ames di<.i. If nominated, 
he evidently is of the opinion that by an 
energetic canvass — and he will make 
one if nominated — he can be elected.

Scheme to Reclaim the Colo- 
rado Desert for Agriculture. 

San Francisco. Aug. 12. — A local paper 
says a number of Eastern capitalists 
are in the city at work on a scheme to 
reclaim the Colorado desert by turning 
the waters of the Colorado river over 
the territory. As outlined the plan 
comprehends the development of the 
greatest irrigation system in the West- 
ern hemisphere. As an indication of tlie 
g'jijd faith of the promoters, they are 
said to have handed the Southern Pa- 
cific a check for $1,500,000 in .return for 
its title to the alternate sections of land 
in Salton basin. 

The land turned over amounted to 
about 600,000 acres. Principally East- 

San Francisco, Aug. 12.— Irving M. 
Scott, president of the Union iron works, 
which turned out the Olympia and sev- 
eral Mther crtU'k American cruisers, 
will soon go to Japan to bid on the con- 
tracts for building men-of-war for the 
Japanese navy. The recent achieve- 
ment of American warships is said to 
have impressed the Japanese strongly, 
and now that those firms are unable to 
underbid American companies only 15 
per cent instead of 50 per cent, as for- 
merly. Mr. Scott thinks he will be able 
to secure a number of contracts. 

The feeling of the Japanese govern- 
ment is shown in the statement recently 
made to Americans by a Japanese cab- 
inet officer: "You are building the 
swiftest ajid most formidable cruisers 
known. Besides that, you have In- 
venfted armor plate for your battle- 
ships which Russia, has chosen for tiers 
in a competition of all the makes of 
armor plate in Europe. Our govern- 
ment, seeing these achievements, indi- 
cating the fact that America has twice 
revolutionized the navies of the world 
by her infinite capacity for invention, 
first in creating the ironclad and then 
the turret, is strongly disposed to draw 
upon American shipyards for a part of 
its new navy.

If ex-Congressman Hall, of the Third 
Minnesota district, is kble to manipulate 
the political situation in his state as he 
hopes to do, the general belief among 
Minnesota politicians who write to 
friends in Washington is that he will 
be the next I>emocraitic nominee for 
governor in the North Star state. Mr. 
Hall is probably the most modest and 
undoubtedly the sntoothest political 
manager in Minnesota in the Demf>- 
cratic party. It will be recalled that 
when he was first nominated for con- 
gress in the Third district that three 
days in advance of the convention very 
little was known regarding him or his 
abimies to fill a great official position 
of this kind. When he ascended the 
platform at the Third district conven- 
tion in Market hall. St. Paul, and de- 
livered his speec-h of acceptance, it was 
then conceded that he was probably the 
coming man in Democratic politics in 
lit will also be remembered that he 
was elected after a hot canvass in that 
campaign, and that he was again re- 
nominatetl and elected. His third 

nomination resulted in his defeat, as is 
well known, by J<:>el P. Heatwole, the 
handsome editor of the Northfield News. 
The general understanding among Mr. 
Hall's friends was that he was not at all 
disgruntled over his defeat for re-elec- 
tion last November. He had served his 
time in the lower house of the national 
congress, and his only hope, in fact, at 
least his present hope, was to lead the 
Democratic hosts to victory at the head 
of the state ticket. Since Mr. Hall left 
here last spring, if the reports received 
here from Red Wing can be relied upon, 
he has been binding all his energies to 
secure the gubernatorial nomination in 
1896. It is presumed that he would not 
be making the effort that he is unless 
he is of the opinion that a nomination 
means ar< election. 

If elected, he will be the only man in 
Minnesota able to carry thfe state for the 
Democrats. When Governor Mcaill 
was elec<ted, it will be remembered that 
ex-Mayor Ames, of Minneapolis, the 
Democratic candidate, only lacked 2,^00

Schooners in Bering 
Liable to Seizure. 


San Francisco, Aug. 12. — The schooner 
Uranis brings news that the sealers 
have reached Bering sea and are in 
Imminent danger of seizure by the rev- 
enue cutters. This means a great deal 
to the owners of sealing vessels and to 
those interested in sealing ventures. 
The instructions under which the cut- 
ters are boarding vessels this year are 
to seize all sea}ers. Vessels even with 
guns for shix>ting seals on board ore 
not allowed in Bering sea. 

The last news from the United States 
cutter Corwin, which was received by 
those on the Uranis, was that she was 
expected back by the middle of July. 
All the«!e things indkiate that the next 
news received from Bering sea is likely 
to be sensational in its nature.

Value of the Product Last Year 
Was Over $65,000,000. 

Washington^', 'Aug. 12. — Statistics of 
the clay working industries of the 
United States are reviewed in the report 
of the geological survey. It Is the first 
time that this subject has been con- 
sidered in annual survey reports. A list 
of over 140.0)0 operators has been pro- 
cured and information obtained from 
nearly all of them. The total value of 
the clay product of the United States 
for 1S94, excluding pottery, was over §65,- 
000.000. The only comparison that can 
be made is with the census of 1890, 
which placed the value at $67,000,000. 
Ohio stands at the head of the states in 
clay manufacture, its products being 
valued at $10,668,000, or over 16 per cent 
of the product of the whole country. 
The other states follow in this order: 
Illinois, 13 per cent; Pennsylvania, 11 
per cent; New York, 8 per cent; New 
Jersey, 7 percent; Missouri and Iowa, 6 
per cent; Massachussetts and Michigan, 
^Vz per cent; Mar>'land, Wisconsin and 
Minnesota, 2 per cent. 

Discussing asphaltum, the review says 
that the largest dcposi-ts are found in 
California, Oklahoma, Texas and Mon- 
tana. It is also found in Kentucky afhd 
Ohio. That from Ohio is the purest in 
the world, the total product of 1S94 was 
valued at $3.53,000.

San Francisco, Aug. 12.— Oen. Antonio

to the citizens of Han Salvador, in which 
he' .says he will soon return to the coun- 
try to' lead a revolt against the govern- 
ment. The army is discontented, he 
says, and will welcome him back as Its 
leader. Ezeta declares that President

his deceit has i)ractically surrendered 
all that wOiS gaint d in the war of 1890.

Beat Her Record. 

San Francisco, Aug. 12.— The navy de- 
partmet^t has evidently determined to 
ascertain if the Columbia Is the fastest 
of American warships, and has assigned 
the honor of competition to the cruiser 
Olympla. The Olympia will soon go to 
Join the Asiatic s<iuadron, and the de- 
p.Trtment has ordered that she shall try 
to make an ocean record as far as Hono- 
lulu at least, and ptissil)ly across thf 
E'acific. Lonal officers think the orders 
mean that the olympia is to try to break 
the (Vdumbi.v's record. 

• "We believe, sincexely that we shall 
beat the record of the Columbia," said 
one of the ofilcers of the Olympia. "Tlio 
distance is 1200 miles, and we ought to 
make it in four and a half days. The 
Olymplni/made n fraction undor twenty- 
two knots an hour on her trial trip. If 
she should keep up to a speed of 
18>^ knots an hour, which we believe 
practical, she would stand off Honolulu 
in four days and twelve hours. This 
w^i-uld be:it the tvcord of the Columbia 
and beat the world."

Burgess Company Will Wire 
the Lonsdale Building. 

The contract fir wiring the new 
Lonsdale building on the old Board of 
Trade site has been awarded to the Bur- 
gess Electrical Construction company, 
of Duluth. over a number of otlier biij- 

d«»rs from various places. In awarding 
this extensive contract the reputation of 
all the bidders for careful and exi>ei^ 
work was thoroughly considered, and 
and was the main factor in determining 
on a choice. The contract calls for a 
f,'i tssthgOOemyl-oeldub. 
6tJ0-light sysit-m. double wir^s, with 
brass armored conduits thr<^>ughfiut. and 
a vast lot of switches, independent cir- 
cuits, meter boards, etc. The reputatif>n 
of the Burgess company is an enviable 
one in electrical work, and their wiring 
and fixtures ar*^ just as full a stamp of 
excellence as is the grade "No. 1 hard" 
on a car of wheat. The Board of Trade 
is one of their jobs, and telephones, etc., 
all were put In by thf^m, as well as 
nearly all the biggest and best contract.'! 
in the city. They employ only skilled 
high grade workmen, and they i>erson- 
ally .superintend every bit of work. In 
a'ldition to this thoy make their own 
fixtures in Duluth. and always use Du- 
luth men to do their work.

.Ml the news was bullish today, and yet 
the market was weak and prices went low- 
er. The weakness was due entirely to 
the absence of any demand for wheat. It 
makes no difference what the statistics 
are wlu-n there Is no demand— wheat will 
always sell lower. The government rf|K>rt 
was regarded as bullish. There were no 
shipments from Argentine last week, and 
only 2,5U<J.UUO bus reported from Russia, 
Indicating that the world's shipments 
would be small. The visible llgun-a were 
also showing a decrease of C7.">.ii0" 
bus, where only about :{i«',(j<.»i bus 
was expected. Trade was slow ami nar- 
row and the friencj.s of wheat were timid 
and ilie bears somewhat aggressive, so 
that in the face of the array of bullish 
news th»» market ruled weak. Even when 
;i cash wheat denuind came uj) at Chicago 
and 31'i.iiWJ bus were taken for ex!M)rt. 
it did not help the market, which contin- 
ued to weaken to the close. The first lot 
of new wheat was received In-re today, 
one car from Lynchburg. N. D., wlilcli 
graded No. 1 northern an<l sold at >'--'>\c, 
or 't*' over 8ei>tember, and one car from 
I 'Wight which graded rejected, iieing very 
smmty. Hotli cars wtre consigned to the 
.\nies-Urooks company. Some new bar- 
Icy was received. 

t5epteml>er wheat opened -"SiC off at C5^ic, \ 
advanced '»c, and then sold off to twc 
shortly before noon. It steadily declined 
aftpr that hour, selling down to W}»c. De- 
cember opened at 6"'4C and declined to 
fiOc. The close was I'v^c lower than Satur- 
day, except for low«'r graile.s of

Rrlsay will remain an amateur, but the 
status of Hackett will be In doubt until 
next season, but It is not unlikely that 
his many admirers ait Rat Portage will him with employment that will 
ni^t ivme under the head of manual 
labor, so that he can stay In the ama- 
teur class next season. However, If he 
should be shut out of the Mlnnetonka 
regattas he can still take part In other 
amateur regattas, because It was de- 
oidiHl at Saratoga that the protests 
against his amateur standing were with- 
out foundation. 

No matter what the effect on the Rat 
Portage oarsmen, the settlement of the 
trouble is a matter for congratulation. 
The rule Is clear and explicit, and there 
can be no further dispute as to any 
man's eligibility to row in the races of 
this association. It would have been a 
cause of deep regret if the trouble had 
entled in the breaking up of the asso- 
ciation, and vthe agreement reached by 
all the clubs is therefore pleasing to all 
liivers of amateur aquatics.

.Although the Duluth crew did not 
win the senior four-t>ared race at Lake 
Mlnnetonka, they made a gallant race 
until exhaustetl nature refused to re- 
spond. Duluth Is primd of them and 
win feel confident that, with proper 
training, they will make all the other 
senior crews (hustle next year. 

Many thousands who never saw her

anxiously hoping that she will soon be

According to a Londi>n disi>atch, the 
officials of the British Bimetallic lea.gue 
state advices have been received, leav- 
ing no room for doubt that there is a 
general desire among Berlin authorities 
to promote an international monetary 
con^rence which would not be merely 
one of a doctrinean character, but 
which would aim at practical results. 
There is no <kwbt, it is stated, that the 
London goW men have been taken 
aback by the large number of members 
of the British cabinet who are bimetal- 
lists. For the same reason the Bimetal- 
lic league; Is greatly elated and is prose- 
cuting a more extended agitation 
throughout thet country. It is distribut- 
ing literature broadcast, while its agents 
are ver>' active In pushing their prcH>a- 
ganda, which, moreover, is having the 
co-operation of some leading labor 

In this connection a letter from the 
London correspondent of the Philadel- 
phia American, which appears in the 
last issue of that earnest and able ex- 
ponent of bimetallism, is interesting, 
especially in view of a recent statement 
by ex-Speaker Crisp that he had not 
been able to find much sentiment in 
favor of bimetallism In England. The 
correspondent says: "It is interesting 
at this juncture to note the great part 
that bimetallism has played In the re- 
cent elections. In a previous letter I 
alluded to the active measures which 
the Bimetallic league had taken to in- 
sure that the question should be placed 
before the electors of the United King- 
dom. Their efforts have been, so far 
as the results are known, crowned with 
success. In Lancashire especially bi- 
metallism has in a great number of In- 
stances turned the .scale and been the 
main cause of many changes in repre- 
sentation; in the agricultural districts, 
also, the farmers have pressed it upon 
the candidates; while even in the 'ignor- 
ant' metropolis Lt has for the first time 
received a large amount of attention. 
It will be almost imp<x>3lble to guage 
the effeats of this agitation until the 
question is brought up for consideration 
in the house of commons; but, on the 
other hand, it may be coaifidently as- 
serted thart a far larger number of can- 
didates than ever before gave their 
promise to assist in any movement 
which may be made in the direction of a 
satisfactory settlement of the currency 
question. None' appear to feel this more 
acvrtely than the monometallists here, 
for they have been comparatively 
active in giving publicity to their views. 
Memorials on the currency question are 
also being showered upon the chancel- 
lor of the exchequer from the provincial 
stcxrk exchanges; while a most import- 
ant memorial in favor of bimetayiam 
was forwarded to him the other day 
from the London stock exchange, signed 
by .some of its most influential mem- 

As the new British cabinet contains a 
large number of pronounced bimetal- 
lists, it is altogether likely that if Ger- 
many should take steps towards calling 
a monetary conference it would have 
the supp<->rt of the British government, 
which would count for much. 


The differences which threatened the 
disruption of the Minnesota-Winnipeg 
Rowing association have been happily 
settled by the adoption of a new con- 
stitutional provision defining the differ- 
ence (between an amateur and a profes- 
sional. Under this rule any oarsman 
who does not earn his living by manual 
labor is an amateur. What effect this 
will have upon the Rat Portage club re- 
mains to be seen. Under this rule, Des 


The Chicago Tribune says that house 
garbage can be cremated and reduced to 
a minimum quantity of ashes at a cost 
of 25 cents a ton. This is done at Pitts- 
burg every year, and has been for six 
years. Experts hold that 40 cents a ton 
for cremation Is the most economical 
way of disposing of garbage, and now 
that it has been demonstrated the work 
can be successfully done for 25 cents 
the solution of one of the most vexa- 
tious and expensive problems in the 
city management seems to be within 
sight. It Is a subject with which the 
Duluth council and board of health must 
deal in the near future, and therefore 
the Pittsburg method of handling it 
should receive their attention. 

The Tribune says that in Pittsburg 
the Ryder furnace is in operation. This 
furnace generates 2300 degrees of heat 
w ith a small amount of coal as fuel, thd 
dried garbage being made to contribute 
to the fire and Increase the combustion 
by the Ignition of gases given off in the 
drying process. For coal and attend- 
ance the average cost of destroying gar- 
bage as shown by the city records is 25 
cents a ton. The plant Itself is economi- 
cal, the cost for a furnace with a cap- 
acity for burning forty tons of garbage 
every sixteen hours being about $8000. 
It is estimated that ten such machines 
working sixteen hours a day would 
cremate all the vegetable refuse in Chi- 
cago, provided the people could be edu- 
cated to a separaition of garbage from 
ashes, the mixing of which has in the 
past been a serious detriment to the 
successful working of such furnaces as 
have been tried. Garbage, green and 
dripping wet, just as it is taken from 
the street boxes, is dumped into the 
furnace and consumed to an ash in 
twenty minutes, this being the time re- 
quired to destroy all the furnace will 
hold. With a good fire In the grate, and, 
after the receptacle had been jammed 
full of green stuff, such as comes from 
the kitchens of most families, two 
shovels of coal are added, the drafts 
turned cm, and in just twenty minutes 
there is nothing left but ashes. 

The Iron Age, the acknowledged au- 
thority on the Iron trade of this coun- 
try, says In Its last issue: "The con- 
viction Is gaining ground throughout 
the Iron trade that the present level of 
prices is not only going to hold its owm', 
but that even better figures are bound 
to rule." 

The marriage of Ell Tripp, of Essex, 
Conn., aged 86, to Miss Sylvia Spencer 
of Deep River, aged 70, has been an- 
nounced. Ever>- one will wish the young 
couple a pleasant marriage trip. It is 
Eli's fourth trip of this kind.

tation/ as the* finest summer* resort in the 
cour»try. W'here else can you find

A Dally Hint from L,'art de la Med«. 

A legislative committee is about to 
make a tour of New York state in the 
interest of the good roads movement. 
It was appointed to consider Governor 
Morton's recommendation that some 
steps be taken to bring ab<jut a general 
Improvement of the highways. The 
committee which is to report a plan for 
highway improvement will visit the 
leading cities and towns of the state 
and will seek to awaken public senti- 
ment as well as to acquaint itself with 
the actual condition of the roads. The 
committee will hold conferences at all 
these points, and will tell their hearers 
what Massachusetts and New Jersey 
have accomplished in the way of road 
improvement. Itds freely admitted that 
the roads of those two states, w^hlch the 
members of the committee have seen 
with their own eyes, average very 
much better than those of New York. 

standpoint. The fact of the l>usiness is 
the goldbug Kiing is beaten and they are 
fully aware oi it, but hope to make some 
sort of a compromise. All the silver legis- 
lation we have had since 1873, except the 
repeal of the Sderman act, has been with 
a view to compromi-se matters, l)ut now, 
with the tight half won, the stiver men 
will not be likely to agree to anything 
but a full and complete restoration of sil- 
ver, and they never should. Victory com- 
plete or nothing. / 

Cloquet Pint' Knot: A strenuous effort 
was made by .some of Duluth's citizens to 
liave the performance of the Wilbur 
Opera company stopped last Sunday. It 
is questionable whether such moves have 
a good effect. There Is no doubt that a 
large majority of the citizens of cities the 
size of Dulmli approve of the Sunday 
opera. And tlu-ir approval is not the out- 
come of a (li-«eneraled moral condition, 
but more likily the outcome of a desire 
for recreation "and a love of music. An 
innocent and instructive amusement is at 
no time a crime.

Anoka Herald: Mr. Towne Ijelongs to 
the Sixth d!.«irict and the Sixth district 
is satisfied with him. It is as bad taste 
for outsiders to criticise him as it would 
l)e for Weary Waggles to kick on the 
jewels which adorn the crown of Queen

Freeborn County Standard: Mr. Towne 
is a man of tine education, a student, an 
orator surpassed by none in the North- 
west, and above all a man who does not 
shuffle but maintains the honesty of his 
convictions, and there Is not a Roths-

with such ability and such a man the

Dr. F. W. Reilly, of the Chicago 
board of health, is out with a circular 
warning the people against the danger 
of kissing. This new alarmist, differing 
from his predecessors, is something of 
a diagnostician. He sizes up that v.ihich 
he conceives to be a danger with refer- 
ence to a safe preventive. He suggests 
that before indulging in the practice of 
osculation the lips be sprayed with 
carbolized rosewater. The suggestion 
may be made with the best intentions, 
but there is little prospect of its being 
carried into execution. 

The New York Mercury says: "New 
sky-scrapers are in process of erection 
in many parts of New York. Our build- 
ers everywhere are emphasizing the 
answer of a law student recently, who, 
when asked what was the property a 
man had in real estate who bought a 
lot. 25 by 100, In this city, responded: 
•The atmosphere above it, as high as 
heavenly regions, and the ground be- 
low as dee<p as th:' infernal regions." " 

A London cablegram says: "It Is

banks gallery will not be complete, 
however, without a life size portrait of 
that great financier and ready letter 
writer, J. Sterling Morton.

Madison. Minn., Independent Press: 
The London Times opposes a remonetlza- 
tion of silver on the ground that the 
United States would gobble up all the 
gold in the Bank of England, while the 
gold monometallists of the Cnlted States 
oppose it on the ground that all our 
gold would leave us for Europe. In 
the meantime the men who believe In the 
free and unlimited coinage of silver say 
that gold would stay right here where 
it is unless it should become more protit- 
able to ship it to Piurope or from P^iirojK' 
to Americ^i, and in that event it would bei 
shipped anyhow, silver or no s-llyer. The 
fact is this flight of gold Is being use«l 
as a scarecrow on both sides of the 
ocean, but the people can see a hole in a 
skimmer, especlallv when that hole has 
become so large that a man can crawl 
through it. 

Two Harbors Iron News: The Iron 
News has taken but little part In the com- 
ment on Congressman Towne's position 
upon the financial question, except to 
compliment his consistency to the plat- 
form of the convention which nominateri 
him. His attitude demands no defense. 
Some men whose knowledge of the plat- 
form was not derived from familiarity 
therewith, occasionally fancy that he has 
strayed from its precepts, and .say so in 
print. The only effect on Mr. Towne, 
possiblv. Is to him to commiserate 
their ignorance, as he is not a vindic- 
tive person. Mr. Towne stated his 
tlon on this question very clearly to the 
conventions committee on resolutions, 
and no utterance of his since has con- 
flicted with that statement. 

Morris Sun: If competition is desirable 
in any business it is in railroading, and 
while it would unquestionably be a great 
scheme for the bondholders to have the 
Northern I'acific and Great Northern con- 
solidated, it would not be for the people 
along the lines, and our Interests are the 
ones we are worrying about, not the fel- 
lows' over in Europe. 

Wants to Get a Pardon for an 
Anarchist Prisoner. 

Pittsburg, Aug. 12. — Emma Desmond, 
of New York, an anarchist of interna- 
tional notoriety, is in 'this locality. The 
main object of hei- visit, as far as could 
be learned, was to help a movement to 
secure the pardun of Alexander Berg-

three years in the, Western penitentiary 
for the attempted murder of H. C. 

The Desmond woman is a native of 
New Orleans, but lived many years in 
New York city. She is an intimate 
friend of Emma Goldman, of New York. 
It is not the intention to ask for Berg- 
man's pardon new, she; said, but to first 
arouse feeling in his favor. It was

Capt. Erichs^-n. whose vessel was

she shortly received a letter from her 
husband, written by a kindly clergy-

Holland, announcing that he and his

A Life's Work P«rpetuated throath a 
FuitbfQl Daachter, and Beconb of 
Priceless Value. 


What a vast amount of misery and 
sufferinsj has been prevented by the clear- 
headed fon'sistht of one noble woman! 

She had struggled, labored, and sacri- 
ficed for the welfare of her sex. 

The eyes of the women of the world 
were upon her. 

As t^he recalled the past, an<l tried to 
penetrate the fiitore, a smile of supreme 
Batisfaction passed over her honest face 
as she remembered that her life's work 
would lie perpetuated. 

The room in which she sat contained 
hundreds of volumes of nconls; and, 
turnint; to her daughter, she said, — 

"3Jy daughter, this room, as you mcH 
know, conuins the records of niy life's 
work, in which for many years you have 
so diligently assisted me. 

" By earnest application you have com- 
passed my methods; and it is a happi- 
ness to think that when I leave, the 
glorious work will, through you, go on. 

" The mission is a noble one. Do as I 
have done: never permit a woman's ap- 
I>eal to go unheeded. 

" These records tell of every case ever 
anbrniited to me; and it is njf wish that 
the facts they contain shall in time i)rove 
a much-needed education to the women 
of the world." 

Tlius did Lydia E. Pinkham hand over 
to her Uauchter, Mrs. Charles II. rink- 
bam, v.hat may be termed the salvation 
of her sex; and that wonderliil remedy, 
Lydia E. P ink It a in' .f Vegetable Com- 
pound, which all druggists consider as 
standard as flotxr, goes on redeeming 
hundreds of women from the fearfiil 
conaequeacci of female diseasfia. 


Wages Raised by the Minne- 
sota Iron Company. 

The Minnesota Iron company, says the 
Virginia Enterprise, is not to be outdone 
in showing its appreciation of the up- 
ward tendency of the iron market, and 
has raised the waKes of employes at Its 
mines in this vicinity to correspond witli 
waices now paid by the Oliver and Franklin 
Many more men could secure work at the 
mint s in the Virginia grouj) at !>resent.and 
goo4l shi|>menis are being made from 
every working mine on the range. 

At the Kayal some 'J.'<') men are now 
furnished employment and from >**> to I»«i 
tons per day are being shipped. The stir- 
face improvements at this property are 
unequalled at any other mine on the 
range, a half score of elegant new cot- 
luges, a line residence for the superintend- 
ent, a sjilenilid office structure in course 
of erection, dry, warehouse, engine room, 
•■tc. forming a village by itself. It is pro- 
po.^pd to put in a water system. 

The Auburn is now shipping some 'Sit») 
tons shaft and SM) tons from stoekpili- 
•laily, a force of about 100 men being 
Klven employment. The stockpile Is be- 
inir loaded \>y steam shovel. 

Day and night shifts arc again being 
worked at the Norman, some '.<**) to V»») 
tons being shipped daily. At this prop- 
erty Hud'llestone & HIackner have a con- 
tract for mining the ore and delivering 
at bottom of shaft. 

The Minnesota Iron company, which has 
ol>taine'l an option on all CTleveland 
lands in the vicinity of Virginia, is busily 
engaged in te«t pit explorations.

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, the new 

discoveiT for stomach troubles, is 
claimed to have cure<l over 6W0 people 
in the state of Michigan alone in 1S94. 
These tablets have become sfy jwpular 
with physicians and people who have 
any form of indigestion that they have 
the endorsement of such physicians as 
Dr. Harlandson and Dr. Jennison a-s 
being the i»a/est, most reliable remedy 
for sour stomach, chronic dyspepsia, 
gas. blr>atlng. palpitation, headache. 
constli«atk>n ajid in all cases wh» re the 
api>etitt' is poor or the food imperfectly 

It is* safe to say that Stuart's DysrK^»- 
sia Tablets will cure any kind of stom- 
ach trouble except cancer trf the stom- 
ach. They are not a B**ret patent in«-di- 
rine, but composed of vegetable and 
fruit essences, pure pepsin, tiolden .'<eal, 
ginger and the digestive acids. They 
are pleasant tf> take, can be carried in

the boats were in the narrows the l>uliiih 
and Minnesota boats collided. Duluth 
claiinvii the foul, but the referee declfled 
that the Minnesotas were not to blame 
for the Duluths were dearly out of their 
water. It was at first deoliled to dis- 
qualify the Duluth crew but at the re<iue8t 
of President MacLaren and Capt. Wann 
of the Minnesotas It was decided to let 
them row. » 

The three crews were o,illed bark and 
a fr»»h stJirt ma-b-. Tiie three crews took 
the water at the same instant and Wir.-

promised not to do so. The storm is all

Attempted to Assault a Woman 
and Then Escaped. 

Chris Winners, a watchman on the 
steamer Northern King, attem|>ted to 
commit a crimlnil a.sHault on Mrs. 
Mari.i Itocco, an Italian emlKraiit, 

ab lut 4 ocl<x-k yesterday iifleriuKjn en 
the Ni>rth<rn Steamship companys 
d<<'k. Ho WJUi iirevented by the 

woman's screams from accomplishing 
bis puriM»se but succ<.*e<l'*d in making 
his e*»cape after attempting to kill a 
bystander who Interfered. 

A gang of Bteve«loreK starte<l to work 
unloading the Northern King as soon 
as she reached the d<x:k yesterday af- 
terno<)n and most of the pasnengers, 
among whom were a numb»'r of emi- 
Kianls, left the boat. Mrs. Ilocco, who 
is a ratlver comely mhldle-aged woman, 
took a Beat in the waiting room and 
sat watching the unl'jaxiing pro<-ess. 

Winners ap|»roached the woman and 
aske<l her to step Into the washroom 
for a drink of water. Although Mrs. 
Ilocco speaks no English, the man In- 
duced her by signs to ent'-r the room. 
Once Inside, tlte door v,'h» closed and 
the brute attempted ito outrage the 
woman who fought desperately. He 
clutched her throat and succeeded in 
throwing h'r on the floor, despite her 
strntgglej<. Winners, who is rx»sses5e<l 
of great strength, partially accom- 
plished his purrK»Re but not until sev- 
eral loud scream.s had alarrmd the men 
working on the b<rat. Winners was 
rrlghtene<l into discontinuing his efforts 
and went on board tho steamer and 
cbange<l his ekithen. 

Assistant (leneiTil Manager Howard 
James was on the d;xk at the time and 
was informed of the ot^currence by one 
of the workmen. He a(;cus(>d Winners 
of tht« crime and the man confessed and 
offered money to arrange matters. Mr. 
.lames angrily refu8e<l and dispatched 
a man for an afllcer. 

A frien<l oi Winners in thn mean- 
time point«*<l out John Kearns. one of 
the stevedores, as llu- informer. Wait- 
ing until Kiarns had turne<l his back 
Winners struck the man several jjow- 
erful blows and knock"^^ him over the 
side into the water. He wa.s rescued 
by his fellow workmen. 

After this a»«aull Wlnn<rs rushed aft 
and Mfcreted himself. His hiding place 
could not be dlwovered and the man 
.succeeijt-d in making his escaiK*. prob- 
ably by dropping ov»t the side and 
swimming ashore. 

The woman was on her way to Van-

Commodore Horace Saxton 
Passed Away Last Evening. 

Commodore Horace Saxton, one of the 
earliest settlers of Duluth, died at his 
residence, 116 East Second street, about 

6 o'clock last evening, after a two-weeks' 
illness, resulting from a paralytic 
stroke. He was S9 years old. For four 
days Mr. Saxton had been in an uncon- 
scious condition, almost completely par- 

The members of the family had been 
summoned, and besides Mrs. Saxton. 
there were gathered about the bedside 
of the dying man his daughters. Mrs. 
Walter Van Brunt, of Diriuth; Mrs. 
Olllett, of Palatka, Fla., and her daugh- 
ter. Mrs. Flnniger, and son Charles Sax- 
ton. Henry Saxton. of Spokane, Wash., 
another son, is on his way here to attend 
the funeral, which takes place at the 
house at 2 p. m. tomorrow. Rev. Dr. 
Forbes and Dr. Ryan will officiate. 

Commodore Saxton came to the head 
of the lakes in 1853, and settled in Su- 
I> c-rior. In 1864 he came across the bay, 
and has lived in Diiluth since that date. 
F ir nine years he was keeper of the 
lighthouse on Minnesota Point. He was 
f-lected street commissioner on the incor- 
poration of Duluth into a city, and 
.served two terms. Since then, while 
prominent in public affairs, he has never 
held office. He was a prominent member 
of the Old Settlers association, and was 
one of the most widely known men at 
the head of the lakes. Considering his 
age, he was a vigorous man physically 
and mentally up to the time of his last 


great. I have been overwhelmed with 
invitations since I have been here but 
have felt compelled to decline. We ex- 
pect to leave this evening as sooni as the 
boat gets through coaling so my visit 
is a very brief and infarmal one." 

The secretary absolutely refused to 
say anything on the monetary question 
and declared he had no idea who wouldi 
.succeed Justice Jackson on the su- 
preme bench. 
The distinguished visitor took a trip 
,up the incline this mormng accompan- 
ied by Mrs. Carlisle and enjoyed the 
view of the bay overlooking the heights. 
On his return to the boat he was vis- 
ited by a number of local citizens in- 
terested in the harbor and desirous of 
renewing aciiuaintancship. Among the 
number were Beriah Magolfin, who is 
an old friend of the secretary's, and 
Capt. McDougal. There was a steady 
stream of visitors on the docks all day 
long. Everyone was anxious to see 
the great financier and statesman. They 
were not disappointed. With his tall 
white hat and light suit the secretary 
looks what he Is— the typical Kentuck- 

While at Marquette Secretary Car- 
lisle met Maj. Sears antf Inokediover the

was greatly Impressed with this and 
spent an hour looking it over. He spoke 
of it as one ^of the nicest and most 
economical pieces of harbor Improve- 
ment work he had ever seen. As ithis 
is Maj. Sears' "pet" work, he having 
designed >and carried it; out, ithls ^praise 
was especially gratifying to him.

•"The Inventions of Sin," illustrated by 
"Living Pictures." was the subject of Dr. 
Thoburn's sermon at the First Methodist 
church, last eveuing. The text was Ec- 
clesiastics vii, 20. "Lo, this only have I 
found, that God hath made man upright; 
but they have sought out many inven- 
tions." The following is a synopsis of 
what Dr. Thoburn said: 

"The human race had a magnificent be- 
ginning; never mind the so-called scien- 
tific twaddle that would trace the origin 
of man to the spawn of a frog pond, or 
the issue of a zooloKical garden. Man was 
created a man by the Lord God. He was 
created upright ;ind pure, but he has 
sought out many devices. The first man 
.sought out an invention whereby he hoped 
to become as the gods. What a "living 
picture" the fall of man makes! All sub- 
sequent history bears corroborative testi- 
monv to its accuracy. There are even re- 
ligious inventions. The religions of pagan- 
ism are infringements on God's great 
plan to provide for human need. The 
mightiest impulse of the soul is this dis- 
position to \vorshii>. and it has been pros- 
tituted by idolatry. What living pictures 
are the altars and temples and bewildered 
devotees of heathen lands? 

"The city is a living picture. The first 
city was founded by the first murderer 
and ever since then the cities have been 
the hot beds of sin's worst devices. Ten- 
nyson said: 

"There among tho glooming alleys, pro- 
gress halts on palsied feet. 
Crime and hunger cast our maidens by 
the thousands on the street. 
"The cities are the shambles of our civi- 
lization. All manner of human wreckage 
drifts thither, all laws are burdensome, 
Sunday is only a lioliday, the dangerous 
elements are banded tosether for their 
own protection, while political boss and 
conscienceless cai)italist play into their 
hands. These storm-centers would soon 
die out, but for their constant recruitings 
from the rural districts. Nothing man 
has ever devised, is a greater menace to 
human longevity and morals than the 
building of cities. The old saylnp is God 
made the countrv. l)Ut man made the city! 
The psalmist was looking upon the same 
scene when he said 1 have £<-en violence 
and strife in the city; mischief and sor- 
row are also in the midst of it.' " 

Dr. Thol)urn here si)oke of the need of 
more men of the Theodore Roosevelt 
character in the city government, and 
also of the duties of individual citizens 
and continued: 

"Society was tho next living picture- 
that impersonal force that dares com- 
mand human conscience and say what is 
elean and what is unclean." The speaker 
referred to irregularities which were often 
white-washed by fashionable society, and 
of the refined sensualism that seeemod to 
be compatible with a good position among 
even the elite, and also, of the profession- 
ally chivalrous gentlemen who had for- 
feited their claim, and who would bo dis- 
counted but for the elastic ethics of a so- 
ciety, which condoned in them what was 
unpardona'olo In ihoir weaker and loss 
Kuilty victims. "Wliat a living picturt; is 
socielv!" said he. 

Dr. "Thoburn th-n presented two pic- 
tures representing the popular amuse- 
ments of the people. The first subject was 
taken from classical mythology and was 
called "Terpsichore." the muse of the 
dance. He said: "I am not discussing 
the romping of children nor the old-fash- 
ioned stately minuet, nor tho 
seiiarate - dances of the sex- 
es. It is the dissolute dance called the 
waltz, with its volui)luous movements and 
indelicate dressing and unwarrantable 
freedom between the sexes. All churches, 
Catholics, Presbyterians, Baptists, Epis- 
copalians, Congronationalists and Metho- 
dists are one on this. They havo de- 
clared In their highesto ecclesiastical 
gatherings that this dance most loved 
by society Is destructive of vital piety and 
detrimental to all tho interests of Christ's 
kiuKdom. There ought to bo something 
In this consensus of opinion which would 
make every one pause anil think. Tlie Hin- 
doos and Mohannneilans never allow 
prondscuous dances. They hire their dan- 
cing done 1)V nautcli jrirls, a class not of 
tho highest moral order. Nine-tenths of 
New York's fallen women took their first 
step in the ball room, and our own avenue 
of .shame and death in tlds city is re- 
cruited very largely from the ball rooms. 
These arc simply the statistics of tho 
police. AnytliiuK »<> perniciotis as this 
shoidd be frownoil u|>on by the l)ost jx'o- 
ple of the commiMiity. It cannot be 
rescued, it is hopelessly in leaRue willi sin. 
Why should men and women over tako 
anv attitude to tlic souikI of music which 
would be uid)ec(inilnK in the absence of 
music'.' A ndKhty invention of sin is the 
dance! There is a way that seemoth 
right unto man but the end thereof are 
the ways of death." 

ThenextHc.-newasthellvIng pictures of 
the "modern tjieat. r." I 'r Tliolmru wislied 
lo bo fair to th«' subject. lie did not 
charKo all actors an<l actrossea ns bo- 
InK l)ad. NothlnK of ttie kind. He sim- 
ply dealt with the theater as an Instilu- 
tion. As early as 4t>0 B. C. Plato de- 

clared "Plays raise the passions and 
abuse them." The Chicago Times and 
the New York Post were quoted as say- 
ing "the stage goes to corrupt morals," 
and "the stage is in a worse condition 
morally than it has been in all its experi- 
ence." A leading theatrical cri*ic of New- 
York said recently, "there have been 
weeks during the winter when in all the 
theaters of the city only one or two 
i)lays could be found which a man could 
invite a woman to see without danger of 
insulting her. The stage has been given 
over to a dreary monotony of seduction 
and adultery.-' 

•'The theater exists for other purposes 
than dramatic representation," he said. 
"Even an able play like 'Macbeth' ha;-' 
.0 be often concluded with some farce 
i-teeped in scandal. The theater as it now 
i'tands unsexes woman by parading h^-r I 
l)eforo mixed audiences in men's attire, 
or no attire. Shame on a community 
that will encourage an institution that 
will suffer thisi violation of womanly 
delicacy for the sake of entertainment! 

"There arc some plays more moral than 
otliers, but it would take a good deal of 
luvender water poured into the sewer of 
the city to change the aroma. A thou- 
sand plays like the 'Old Homestead' or 
'Little Lord Fauntleroy' would not undo 
the harm of a Ijurlesque like the London 
Alhamljra company with its 'girls in 
Kowns of gauze,' or the living pictures 
now in this city with their 'shapely 
women' as one of our local papers adver- 
tized them. I'nder the caption of a sacred 
concert many a low performance has 
been given. We have been duped al- 
ready in that way here and are likely 
to be again. A Colorado theater once 
advertised 'a. grand sacred dog fight' for 
Sunday evening, which was nearly on a 
par with a parade of Sunday school 
questions being answered by a preco- 
cious child between the acts of a skirt 
dance. Take away from the theater tho 
pride, the lust, the triumph of evil, the 
Iiremium on revenge, the discount on sin, 
and tho theajter would soon close up for 
want of patronage. Any institutoin that 
dims the moral sense and weakens the 
purer impulses of all who see and hear, 
ought to be ostracised." 

Dr. Thoburn closed by throwing in liv- 
ing pictures of "the discouraged man," 
"the prodigal son" and "the wayward 
girl." He recited Hood's beautiful iioem 
■The Bridge of Sighs," and then spoke 
of the daily pictures which were photo- 
graphed by the action of light, of every 
individual which God had ever before 
lli:n, which would witness for or against 
the soul in the day of judgment.

New York, Aug. 13.— Justice O'Brien 
in supreme court thi.s morning handed 
down a decision denying the motion for 
an injunction to restrain the reorganiza- 
tion committee of the Di-stilling and 
^'attle Feeding company, from purchas- 
'ig or acquiring the property of the which was advertised to be sold 
t'>m'>rrow. The motl'jn for an injunc- 
tion was brfmght by Freilerick W. An- 
n^-ss and George X. Pj-ncheon, who re- 
present $l.i,<X>0 worth of the stock in the 
trust. They contend thit the purchase 
by the reorganl«aitlon committee would 
perpetuate the trust which had been 
declared an illegal monop<jly by the su- 
preme court of Illinois. 

In his decision. Judge O'Brien says: 
It is claimed that the reorganization is 
invalid bt-cause it involves: 1. The per- 
petuation of .the monopoly of the Dis- 
tilling and Cattle Feeding company, 
which has been adjudge<l contrary to 
public policy. 2. The unlawful use of 
$;«,0(»0,(»00 of m.x-k upon the basis of 
pro[>erty which is not worth to exceed 
$10.t)0<).(H>0; o. The unlawful use of $7.- 
iHi().fxMj preferred stock: 4. The creation 
of an illegal trust. 

If the agreement •was su.sceptible of 
but one con.struction. and that the one 
given it by the plaintiffs then there 
would be forced in the contention that 
the plan proposed is illegal. It must be 
rfrnf-mbered, however, that the agree- 
ment does not bind the committee to any 
fixed plan, but a wide discretion is given 
to do what in their judgment they deem 
for the best interests of the stockhold- 
ers and their powers are limited only in 
j>articulars unnecessary to mention, and 
which do not affect the question of 
legality. It cannot be assumed in ad- 
vance of the action of the committee 
that they will proceed unlawfully. 

"The effect of an injunction at the 
present time would be to prevent the by the committee of property 
for which, by permission of the I'nited 
States circuit court, they have been 
allowed to bid. Whaitcver other object- 
ionable features there may be in the 
plan, this right conferred on the com- 
mit te<» to purchase and which ha.s been 
sanctioned by the United States court 
is unobjectionable. It is more<jver im- 
portant to the stockholders that the 
property should not be sacrificed, and if 
after purchasing, the committee should 
attemp* to reorganize the former mon- 
opoly, the courts will not hesitate to 
again intervene and prevent it. 

•"Th'-re an- un'iuejni^'nably features in 
the agreement which lo.>k like investing 
the committee with power to rehabili- 
tate the old company. It is true thai 
they are n »t to purchase all the prop- 
erties, but it is evident that those to be 
purcha.«ed include all of the largest and 
most important distilleries. This of 
it.<*?lf is unobjectionable, if the new 
comr>any or comr'anies to be formed 
should avoid the meitho<ls of the old c^>m- 
pany, which was directed to stifling com- 
petition and creating a monopoly. The 
question relating to the issue of the pre- 
ferred stook and the f^jmmon stock for 
such a large amo-jnt are doulvtful 
legally. Those questions. however, 
should not be det»-rmintfl on a motion, 
but sbijuld be reserved for that delibera- 
tion and consideration which is to be 
helfl ui>on a trial. 

"A court of e<iuity should never, in a 
doubtful case, an injunction, 
especially where it would' work irrepar- 
able Injury. If the comraittef? was pre- 
vented fnim carrying out its bid and 
securing the properties it w.;u!d entail 
ser1f)us loss uiKin all. After they have 
.'♦ecTired the properties .should they at- 
tempt to make an illej^al use of them, 
the courts would afford relief. Apart. 
however, from the W-gality or illegality 
of the organization agreement, th*- ques- 
tion presenHs itself, whether or not the 
plaintiffs have not the right to with- 
draw, or whether the agreement con-' 
ferred on the Cf»mmlttee anything more 
than a power reversible at the pleasure 
of the depositing str^^k iiolders. If it 
conferred such a power then undoubt- 
edly such power ci>ased as to plaintiffs 
up«^'n their demanding the return of their 
money and seourities. The agi-jc-nv -ir 
Is one tlo deposit stock and Is no doubt 
a consideration to uphold the deposit 
by another st<x;kholder, and of course 
where the company has acted or becom" 
obligated to that extent, depositing 
stockholders are b<jund. 

"Here a bid has been made which It H 
claimed constitutes a contract between 
the committee and the I'nited States 
circuit court. Whether it i.s. strictly 
speaking, a contrac-t or not. it Is an en- 
gagement into which the commit t»-*- 
entered on the strength of the plaintiffs 
as well as the other stockholders, and 
where there is a doubt as to whether or 
not the I'nited States court would com- 
pel the committee to complete it. it 
would be placing the committee in a 
hazardous rx>sition, and mighrt bring 
about a clash of jurisdiftion for tiiis 
court to enjoin the committee from pur- 
chasing. It has been shown that the 
committee is solvent and responsible, 
having more than a million dollars on 
hand, and therefore in a position to re- 
spond to any damage that plaintiffs may 

"If against their protest the commit- 
tee then procee*!. the plaintiffs 
if successful would be entitled 
to a return of the stock or 
value together with the cash 
deposited. The committee is at present 
able to respond to such a judgment, and 
it cannot be assumed that they will run 
the risk of personal liability by a failure 
'o retain until the termination of this 
suit, a sufTlclent amount to cover the 
plaintiffs' claim. 

"Motion for a preliminary injunction 
i.s accordingly denied, with costs to 
abide even." I 


Report of Experts as to Effect 
on Lake Levels. 

New York, Aug. 13.— Frank W. Hawloy 
has just returned from Chicago, where 
he ha» been for the pa.=t few weeks 
examining the drainage canal In an at- 
tempt to determine whether the con- 
struction of this Improvement Is likely 
to lower the water of the great lakt*. 
and whether also it is likely appre- 
ciably to divert traffic fmm the East 
down the Mississippi. Mr. Hawley has 
presented his report both to his busi- 
ness associates and to the committee of 
the produce exchange and i>ther associa- 
tions, which are about to Ijegln the cam- 
paign for the approi)riation of $9,000.- 
<Mny for the Krie canal. 

The mosft important Information given 
by Mr. Hawley was an estimate as to 
the probable effect upon the great lakes 
of the diversion of a great bo<ly of 
water thmugh this canal. His report 
was that there can be no question that 
an enormous quantity of water will bt- 
taken from Lake Michigan for the fill- 
ing of this canal. Th^ best estimates 
that he could obtain were that this 
volume will be ccmstantly equal to one- 
third that contiilned in the Missis- 
sipi>i rivt-r alH>ve the mouth of the Mis- 
souri, or three times that of the Ohio 

Mr. Hawley's report ujjon the sug- 
gestion that the Chicago ship canal 
might seriously divert traffic from the 
Erie was verj* brief, for it Is all a mat- 
ter of conjecture. In Chicago it is 
looked upon as a certainty that con- 
siderable lakie commerce will seek the 
.«ea through the >Ilssissippi valley as 
soon as this canal is completed. On the 
other hand. Mr. Hawley says that in the 
West it is thought that the canal would 
bring traffic to the Erie as well as take 
it away, and that new and distant local- 
itl«-s In the West would use the canal 
as an economical route to the Ea^t.

Murderous Attack at St. Louis 
This Morning. 

St. Louis, Aug. 13. — A deadly assault 
was made on the levee this morning. 
An enraged negro fired a fusilade of 
bullets Into a crowd of passengers and 
members of the crew of the steamer 
City of St. Louis as they came down the 
gang plank of the boat just after she 
landed at the -wharf, between 7 and 8 
o'clock. Two white men and two 
negroes were wounded, one fatally, but 
none of the passengers were hurt. The 
wounded are: Louis Davis, colored, 
captain of the nigtit watch, shot in the 
region of the kidneys, will probal^ly die; 
Frank Bennett, white, a roustabout, 
shot in arm; John Bell, steward of the 
steamer City of Cairo, shot In leg. not 
serious; William Thomas, colored roust- 
about, left leg shot, not serious. The 
wounded were sent to the city dispen- 

The shooting was the outcome of a 
fight between the negro, whose name is 
unknown, and Davis, captain of the 
watch, while the steamer ^as lying at 
Cairo Sunday, and in which the negro 
was l>adly worsted and driven from the 
boat. Exasi*erated at his defeat and 
burning with revenge, he boarded a 
train and arrived here last night. Early 
this morning he concealed himself be- 
hind a pile of freight on the levee and, 
when the steamer arrived and her pas- 
sengers and crew were moving down the 
staging, he opened fire. During the ter- 
ror and excitement among the passen- 
gers and crew, caused by the sudden 
and deadly attack, the would-be mur- 
derer escaped and has not l>een cap- 
tured at this writing. 

Omaha, Aug. 13.— No demonstration 
has been made today In the police row, 
but plans are all matured for the A. P. 
A. board to attempt to enforce its auth- 
ority at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. 
With this in view the A. P. A. board 
has served the following notice on the 
old l<oard: 

"Although you are apprised of the fact, 
we hereby formally notify you that we 
have been appointed fire and police com- 
ii:s.sluners of the city of Omaha, under 
the law of 1895, and pursuant to that law 
we have filed our bonds in the sum of 
J5000 each, and the same has been ap- 
proved by the city council of said city, 
according to law, and we have filed our 
official oaths with the city clerk, and 
In all resi>ects have duly qualified and 
aie recognized by the city council and 
also by the court decLsion ix-ndered by 
Hon. M. It. Hopewell. Therefore w"e 
hereby notify you that having duly 
qualified and having been recognized, 
as before set out, and having a.s»umed 
the duties of said ofllc-e, we name Wed- 
nesday. Aug. 14, at lu o'clock a. m., as 
a suitable time to receive from you the 
records and property and rooms that 
properly belong to us as the lawful 
board of fire and i>olice commission- 
ers. ' 

In the meantime the ex-commlssloners 
will not change their course, but go on 
reinforcing the city jail and preparing 
to resist an assault. This Is taken as 
certain evidence that a conflict will re- 
sult, since the old board will not sur- 

One plan of the A. P. A. board Is that 
the new board will organize a new police 
force and put new men on every beat 
In the city. The old officers will arrest 
them and take them before Police Judge 
Berka, who is an A. P. A., who will 
release them, holding that the new men 
are real officers instead of being men 
w»o a'e imp Tsonating ofllceTS. As 
soon "as the A. P. A. are released they 
will bring heavy damage suits against 
the officers making the arrests, includ- 
ing their bond.*mien In the suit. So far 
as the possession of the records of the 
fire and police commission is concerned, 
the A. P. A. claim to care nothing. In- 
dividual conflicts are likely to occur 
when the police arrest one another. 



Joe Patchen Will Give an Ex- 
hibition Mile. 

Buffalo. Aug. 13.— Joe Patchen will be 
shipr>ed to Milwaukee to go an exhibi- 
tion mile for the purse of $1100. CoL 
Taylor wanted a match between Patch- 
en. John R. Gentry and Robert J. for 
$5000 a side, the distance flag to be 
moved within fifty yards of the wire. 
This he failed in because- after Robert 
J. had l»een l>eaten by Joe Patchen last 
Thursday, Hamlin refused to set him 
up a second time. 

Instead they offered $2000 for the race 
between Gentr>' and Patchen. leaving 
Robert J. out, but Col. Taylor would 
n-^t consent, alleging that his horse 
would be at a disadvantage, as he had 
just had a bruising race, while Gentrj- 
was fresh. Gentr>-, Patcheoi and Robert

Ryde, Isle of WiRht. Aug. 13.— Bad

Important Yachting Event Set 
for Tomorrow. 

Cowes, Isle of Wight, Aug. 1.3.— A 
great deal of interest is taken in yacht- 
ing circles in the majtch race which Is to 
be sailed tomorrow under the auspices 
of the Royal Ya/ht club sailing commit- 
tee, between R. S. Palmer's crack 
schooner Yampa and Mr. Wills' cruiser 
schooner Amphitrite. for £1(m}, over the 
old queen's course. This is the course 
.sailed on Wednesday last when the 
Yampa won the Lord Inverness ;iOO 
guineas cup, but was afterwards dls- 
qualifiefl on the pn)test of Mr. Wills on 
the ground that the Yampa carried nine 
more hands than the regulations al- 

This was not denied by Mr. Palmer, 
the mistake being simply due to his 
failure to read the rules before agreeing 
to start in the race. The conle-st 4o be 
dt-eided tomorrow was br',>ught about 
with the view of allowing the Yampa to 
definitely decide her superiority over 
the Amphitrite. and In order to show 
that the Royal Yacht squ.idn^n fully .ip- 
preclates Mr. Palmer's iKJsition In tirie 
matter, although there was no other 
course to take but to disqualify the 
Yampa, for having broken the regula- 
tions for yachts sailing in cruising trim. 

Chadron. Neb.. Aur. l.l.-Edward r'lepp. 
Coleman Nlckolds and Henry^ns, 
British hirvcle tourist.s were arrested Sat- 
turday night for fast riding and this mor-

fi.TO each. Although abundantly supplied 
with money they refused to pay their 
fines and were committed to hard work 
on the street. They would not work, 
however, but sat down under a load of 
hay. They will claim the protection of 
the English government. 


Threshing Machine Accident

say: "They are the raclns sails and

that need t>e said." 

"Is one set of upars made of steel?" 
was asked. 

"I have nothing to say alwut that."

fifty Italians, employed on the excava- 
tions for the conduit In Allegheny, 
struck yesterday for an advance in 
wages. Other men were .secured to take 
their places, and today the strikers tried 
to <lrive the new men from the work. 
Stones, clubs and revolvers were freely 
used, and two Italian.<^ whose names 
could not be learned had their hea»l8 
split open in the melee. The mob was 
dispersed by the police. 


Crop is Immense and is Be- 
yond Harm. 

Chicago, Aug. 13.— The "bigness of our 
com crop beggars the arithmetic." said 
Frank P. Mann, editor^of the Topeka 
SlaXe Journal, in an interview here to- 
day. "Instead of saying the state of 
Kansas now, you should say "cornfield' 
for 'state.' You will understand. In a 
measure, the com figures of Kansas 
when I say to you that the crops will 
be more than 250,00(t,(»00 bushels. It will 
exceed 300,000,000. It will give 400 pounds 
to every man. woman and child in the 
I'nited States and leave enough to send 
several loads to Ru^wia. 

"In Kansas it is customary to say 
early in the summer, 'one more g<K)d- 
rain will insure the corn.' Since we be- 
gan to use Uiat stereotyped expres.slon 
about the early part of July we have 
had one rain after another, the last a 
few days ago, all coming as if provided 
by a terrestrial rain maker who had 
discovered the rnal way to find the 
yellow grains of the cob-growing ma:ize. 

The corn crop'of 18S5 has been saved 
more times than its nine chances to curl 
up and breathe the hot winds of the 
South. It is everlastingly saved. The 
parched-mouthed evil demon who in 
years has iilasted the hopes of the 
citizens of Kansas ha-s not this season 
cro.'-'.sed the southern border of the state 
ex( ej>t in two or three small spots, 
where the hot breeze left a sample but 
declined to deliver the goods. 

"Nothing but a regular Illinois cy- 
clone which might blow the corn stalks 
out of the ground could now hurt the 
Clop, and that would cmly give it to 
the adjoining counties and states and 
territories. The c»rn is practically 
'made.' iMuch of it matured very early 
and frosts have no chance for any- 
thing more than killing the leaves 
which have conveyed the nourishment 
to the other, now able to 'head and also 
to hump for Itself." 


Chicago, Aug. 13.— IlllnoLs' weekly 
weather crop bulletin. Issued today, 
s:iys: The week has been gen<:::3lly fav- 
orable throughout the state for ill crop*. 
The temr>erature ha.s averai;ed a few 
liegrees above the normal, with two or 
three days <jf excef.«ive heat. The few- 
showers of the past week have been 
widely scattered, and in <mly a few 
limited districts have they been heavy. 
Vegetation and crofis have not been re- 
tarded because of drought, except In a 
few districts in the northern i>art of the 
state. Corn Is now making solid 
growth, there being a full setting of 
ears which are filling rapidly. A crop 
much aljove the a\erage is now as- 

The har\rst is nearly completed and 
most of the wheat is graded as No. 2 
or No. 3. Much plowing Is being done, 
and as large an acreage of wheat as 
usual will be sown this fall. Pastures 
are generally good. The second growth 
of clover is now nearly ready to cut. 
and in some cases it Is much heavier 
than the first growth. Lat#- potatoes 
and gardens promise good yields. There 
is but little fruit tf> market in northern 
counties, but in the central and southern 
counties much is going to waste because 
of a glutted market. 


Des Moines, Iowa, Aug. 13. — The Iowa 
weekly weather crop bulletin, issued to- 
day, says: The average temperature 
of the wefk was above normal. On the 
8th and 9th brisk winds, with tem- 
perature above 90, caused apprehension 
of serious damage to the rapidly-matur- 
ing corn crop. This was relieved In part 
by cooler weather with scatten-d 
showers In the western and northern 
districts. The amount of rain was suffi- 
cient to afford sub.«tantial l>enefit to 
crops in about one-third of the state. 

In more than half of the state corn hag 
unquestionably recei^■ed some damage 
by weather since Aug. 1. and the present 
condition does not justify the promLse 
of more than an average yield for the 
state at large. With timely rains to 
help the later fields and favorable 
weather throughout the balance of the 
season, corn will be highly satisfactory. 

Threshing returns <ontinue to show 
yields of oats much al>ove the average 
and other small grains unusually 


Says Englishmen Like Ameri- 
can Competitors. 

New Yorki Aug. 13. — M. F. Dwyer was 
among the passengers who arrived on 
the Fulda^this morning. Beyond stat- 
ing that his return did not signify a 
comi)lete withdrawal from English rac- 
ing, the turfman di<l not care to di.s< 
his plans at length. It is believed he 
will leave for Euroi>e again early in the 
fall. Mr. Dwyer said that he enjoyed 
his trip abroad exceedingly- He was 
a-sked when Mr. Croker would return. 
He replied tha/t Mr. Croker would lea^ e 
the other .«id>' in about a month. H- 
has, he said, secuivd pas.sage on one of 
the American line steamships and would 
arrive here about the middle of Septem- 

Mr. Dwyer said he and Mr. Croker had 
b'-en treated with great consideration 
by ev«jrj-one while in Englan«l. and tak- 
ing into account the condition of their 
horses, he thought they had done very 
w«-ll. While the stable had not been 
quite as successful as they had 
he would not hesitate to send ejitries 
to the English races again. The Enn- 
llsh system of rating does n<^'t differ 
greatly from ours, tie said, and he 
thought it had many admirable feat- 
ures. English horse owners and turf- 
men generally are anxious to hav--

Senator Harris Says Thirty 
States Will Be Repre- 
sented in Conference. 

Washington. Aug. 13.— Naval officers 
are calling attention in view of the riot- 
ing at Hwa Sang and other places in 
China, to the great value of light draft 
gurt boats for Ju3t such service as they 
might now be able to render, if there 
were any available, on the Asiatic sta- 
tion. The Min river, near which the 
place is situated, is very shallow and is 
not navigable, except to old fashioned 
flat bottoms, stern wheelers, but there 
are many of the Chinese rivers and 
rivers of other countries, with which the 
United States might become involved in 
trouble which are navigable to vessels 
drawing 10 to 12 feet. 

The government is now having built 
at Newiwrt News two gun boats draw- 
ing 9 feet 10 inches. These could be 
of service for such work. The great dif- 
ficulty, as some of the naval officers 
point out. with all the vessels built by 
the United Stales, is ^that according to 
ithe laws under which they are con- 
structed they are to show a specified 
draft under a "normal" displacement. 
This "normal" displacement is con- 
strued by the builders as her lightest 
possible condition. A vessel with a 
normal displacement, fur instance, of 
7500 tons and a draft of 21 feet. will, 
when coale<i and ready for service, show 
a displacement of perhaps 90<)0 tons and 
a draft of 23 or 24 feet. 

The cruiser Columbia which, accord- 
ing to the law under which she was con- 
structed, showed a displacement of 7350 
tons and a draft of about 22 feet, in her 
recent trip across the Atlantic, with her 
coal bunkers full, had a displacement of 
about SSOO tons and a draft of about 26 
feet. According to the records of the 
department the Philadelphia has never 
been down to the normal displacement 
since her trial trip. At the nearest ap- 
proach to this her coal bunkers were 
nearly empty. Had they been abso- 
lutely so she would have shown 2300 tons 
below- her normal displacement. 

"Congress," said a naval officer, 
"should indicate the displacement and 
draft of a vessel to be constructed, as it 
would be when loaded and ready for sea. 
The normal displacement is a fiction and 
an imposition.

Mined With a Cheese Knife- 
In the Alaskan Region. 

San Francisco, Aug. 13.— The schooner 
Golden Gate which has been on a pros- 
pecting cruise among the islands of the 
.Vloutian archipelago returned hist night 
with tales of wonderful mines where 
rich ore is to be cut out with a cheese 
knife. The Golden Gate sailed from 
San Francisco in July with a party of 
young men who had engaged in an 
Alaskan mining expetlition. Three of 
the party of twelve or more returmd 
with the" schooner, but they are full of 
buoyant hopt>s and after the ore brought 
down in the vessel is assayed will n^ 
turn to the islands with more ma- 

The men on the Golden Gate say lit- 
tle about the location of their big 
strike. It is supposed to be located on 
one of the islands just south of Kodlaki 
i'^land. The ore is rebellious, but rich 
enough to warrant the expenditure nec- 
essary to properly mill it. 


A. R. U. Men Incensed at the 
Inscription on It. 

San Francisco. Aug. 13.— Local mem- 
bers of the A. K. U. are much incensed 
over an inscription that has been placed 
on the monument erected over the 
graves of four soldiers who were killed 
in a railroad wreck during the great 
strike a year ago. The inscription is 
to the effect that the soldiers were mur- 
dered by strikers near Sacramento. 
July 11, 1S94. 

Although one striker has been sen- 
tenced to death for complicity in the 
wrecking of a train bearing govern- 
ment troops during the strike the mem- 
bers of the A. R. U. denounce the in- 
scription as false and unjustifiable.

Brings comfort and improvement and 
tend4 lo personal enjoyment when 
rightly used. The many, who live bet- 
*?r than others and enjoy life more, with 
less expenditure, by more promptly 
adapting the world's best products to 
the needs of physical being, will attest 
the value to health of the pure liquid 
laxative principles rrabraced in the 
remedv, Syrup of Figs. 

Its excellence is due to its presenting 
in the form most acceptable and pleas- 
ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly 
beneficial properties of a perfect lax- 
ative ; effectually cleansing the system, 
dispelling colds, headaches and feyera 
and permanently curing constipatioi^ 
It has given satisfaction to millions and 
met with the approval of the medical 
profession, because it acts on the Kid- 
neys, Liver and Bowels without weak- 
ening them and it is jK-rfectly free from 
every objectionable suUstanco.

For Sensational Murder of His 
Wife and Child. 

York, Enpr.. Aug. 13.— Robert Hud- 
son, a young and highly educated man, 
v.-ho iiad run through his own and his 
wife's fortunes, was executed by hang- 
ing here today for the murder of his 
wi''e and child on Hemsley moor. Yorlt- 
shire. in June last. He decoyed his 
victims to the moor, cut their throats, 
shot them with a revolver and buried 
them on the moor. Before he killed his 
wife he had advertised for another wife 
under the name of Hunter. 

The crime was accidentally dis- 
covered by a man who noticed the 
freshly turned earth on the moor, in- 
vestigated the matter and dug up the 
b.jdics. Hudson was captured and his 
ti-ial and conviction and sentence fol- 
lowed. He died calmly. 

Middletown, N. Y., Aug. 13.— Three 
foreigners having trained bears loitered 
around Farmer James M. Coombs' place, 
a mile from Summit yesterday. At dark 
the farmer ordered them away. They 
refuse<l to go. when, getting a shot gun. 
he sent two charges into the party. Two 
received bullets in their abdomens, one 
of them died before reaching Summit. 
The other is dying, while the third is 
not seriously injured. Coombs gave 
himself up. 

New York, Aug. 13.— Another body 
was discovered this morning from the 
ruins of the collapsed building at West 
Broadrway " and West Third street. It 
was terribly mangled and decomposed, 
and every bone was broken and great 
pieces of flesh were scraped from his 
arms and legs, and part of the face was 
crushed in. The body was placed in 
coffin 14. This makes the fourteenth 
body which has been removed from the 
ruins, and the one who dletl in the hos- 
pital makes fifteen dead th^is far. 

Constantinople. Aug. 13.— The vali of 
Selonica telegraphs ithat a Bulgarian 
band, numbering about 1000 men, has at- 
tacked the village of Janakli. in the dis- 
trict of Kird Jali, and burned 290 houses. 
The Armenians are also said to have 
killed twenty-five of the inhabitants of 
Janakli. The vali of Adrianople has 
sent a similar dispatch, but he thinks 
that the accounts of the affair are proib- 
ably exaggerated. 


Lander, Wyo., Aug. 13.— By the alter- 
ation of brands, it has been discovered 
that thousands of head of cattle have 
been stolen and run north into Montana, 
where they have been sold. In som<' two-thirds of the herds have dis- 
appeared. Stealing amounting to $30,- 
00<> during the past three months have 
already been made certain, and it is 
expected to be greatly increased when 
all reports are in. 

Lexington, Aug. 12.— Robert Brooke 
arnl L'-wi.s Payne, purtntrs In a

Payne. Self defensi^ is claimed. 

Washington. Aug. 13.— Senator Harris, 
o£ Tennessee, is the only member of the 
committee which signed the call for a 
convention of Democrats on silver, to 
take place in Washington tomorrow, 
who has arrived. Senators Jones and 
Turpie are the other members and are 
expected before ithe opening conference. 
The meeting will be held in the parlors 
of the Metropolitan hotel, and will con- 
tinue for two days, its duration depend- 
ing upon theiwill of those present. 

It is not intended that the gathering 
shall be a mass meeting, but merely a 
meeting of representative Democrats of 
the country, to the extent of two or 
three from each sitate, who favor the 
free coinage of silver by the United 
States independent of other nations, and 
who believe that the success of the party 
in the future is dependent uix)n its as- 
suming an aggressive policy on this line. 
The call for the conference grew out 
of a meeting at Memphis in which only 
Democrats participated, after the con- 
clusion of the recent ma.s3 convention 
there, and the decision to hold it here 
was arrived at after a full action on the 
part of silver Democrats throughout the 
country. Notwithstanding there was a 
number of Populists and some Republi- 
cans present at the Memphis convention, 
no representaitives of either of these 
parties were invited lo the conference 
which authorized the call. 

The meeting here will have two prin- 
cipal purposes. The first of them will 
be to devise a plan to hold all silver 
Democrats In the party, and the second 
to insure, if possible, a declaration for 
free coinage at the next national Demo- 
cratic convention. To accomplish this 
latter purpose, it is expected that an 
organization will be perfected in every 
state represented in the conference, 
whose principal purpose shall be that of 
securfng delegates to the convention 
pledged to a silver platform and to a 
candidate of corresponding views. 

It is expected that men will be select- 
ed to take charge of this work in each 
of the states. Senator Harris thinks 
about thirty states will be represented 
ait the conference. 

Representative Cox, of Tennessee, is the 
only delegate to the conference who has 
a'-rived at the Metropolitan. "The object 
of the conference," he said, "is to per- 
fect an organization inside the Democratic 
party. We have no sympathy with move- 
-ments looking to independent action. 

It is estimated that the attendance will 
not exceed l'K> persons and there is so far 
no evidence that it will reach that number. 
Senator Harris says Senator Jones, of 
Arkansas, will be the temporary presid- 
ing officer.

Parties in West Duluth Talk- 
ing of Establishing 
Such a Theater. 

The Citizens Are Not a Unit 

Either for or 

Against It. 

Hurley Block Is the Building 
Which is to Shel- 
ter it. 

If competitk>n is the life of trade. Ole 
CMssensParlor theater will probably ex- 
p«rl«ice a perceptible increase in busi- 
ness in the future. At any rate, it is 
reported that certain parties have 
kased the second story of the Hurley 
block on Central avenue for the pur- 
pose of opening up a variety theater, 
or. as It is termed, a concert hall. The 
lower floor of the building is already 
occupied by a saloon, so that the most 
important nocossory to the business Is 
already -hed. 

Publi< a. so far as it has been 

expressed, tit-ems to be greatly divided 
on the questidji of permitting such a 
form of amusiement to flourish within 
the gates of West Duluth. Some people 
pn^test that it will be an abomination 
In the eyes of decent people and a tn^ave 
temptation to the young men of this 
portion of the city. Others argue that 
there Is a class of people who seek out 
such places in every community, and 
they might as well spend their money 
fcere as to go up to the city proper and 
wear out Ole 01ss=^n"s benches. The 
subject will probably be most enterUin- 
inglv handled by bi>th s»ides and meet 
with considerable discussion before it 
is se^ttled that West Duluth shall put 
on metropolitan airs and become as 
wicked as West Superior and Duluth.

Wheat opened weak today, but the 
shorts at Chicago took advantage of the 
break and covered freely which quickly 
checked the decline, much of it being 
attribute<l to Cudahy and crowd, and 
the market got a gotxl upward start. 
Other causes then began to develop to 
give the market additional ."Strength 
and there was a steady Improvenii-nt. 
The cables opened lower in sympathy 

with the decline, but turned strong as 
soon as our strength became known 
over there. There wae a continued good 
demand for cash wheat, and before 
noon 140.000 bus were reporte<J worked 
.at Chicago, part for direct exiKirt. New 
York \\ ired that there was good con- 
tinental buying there, Minneapolis said 
there was an improved demand for flour 
for export for the world's shipments 
last we<=-k were about 1,500.000 bus below 
the estim ited weekly requirements. Of 
the eighty-eight cars of new winter 
wheat at Chicago today only two 

graded No. 2 and of the twenty-three Del., Lack. & W.. 
ears of new spring six graded No. 2. I General Electric. 
The market held steady and featureless 
after noon until the last fifteen min- 
utes, when it grew stronger. 

September opened here %c off at 
64M>c and with very light trading sold 
up to 65c by noon, advancing later to 
^S'oo. December started %c up at 65%c 
and sold up to 66V^c. advancing nomi- 

.amount afloat has bein reduced more 
than 25 per cent Inl the |.a.s,t ni(mth, ami 
the axlmlssion of the .Mark Lane Ex- 
press that old st<icks lu.- innniug low. 
Indicates that foreigni is mu.vt begin to 
take our wheat stxm. Tiu* outlook now 
is for a good export bu.siness. New 
York reports eight loads worke<l there 
tday for export, and aluiut 2.'>0.000 has 
been taken here today. Clearance.^ may 
now be expected to Phow up very dii- 
ferently from what th< y have been the month. .More wet weather is re- 
ported in France, and tlie Paris markot 
advanced in .««pite of our decline. 

Corn and oats: The deni md for cash 
corn has been so urgent that l?ic was 
bid over September. An examination 
of the Washington figures in detail 
shows that an error must have been 
made In the summarj- pent out. Condi- 
tions have decreased in t\\ienty-one 
states and increased in twenty-four. 
The decreases indicate a reduction of 
the crop 133.303,000 bus and the in- 
creases foot up but 9H,."i60.000 or a net 
reduction compared with the July re- 
port of 34,522.000 bus. These figures 
are from the Trade Bulletin which pub- 
lishes them as telegraphed from Wash- 
ington and i-epeated to insure correct- 
ness. Both corn and oats shorts have 
i)tH^'n busy today. Prices may fall off 
again* but it should not be forgotten 
that May corn was never so low: in thi^ 
market at this sea.son us now. that the 
new crop is a month from maturity and 
follows three short crops in succession. 
The chances are so greatly against the 
sliort sellers under existing conditions, 
that one ought to be prepared to taJte 
Fmall profits and make quick turns if 
working on that side. 

Provisions very dull and clo.sed a lit- 
tle lower v.-ith an easier hog market. 

Stocks have been rather quiet, with 
the grangers inclined on first sales to- 
wards lower prices, but later firmed up 
fractionally. Some talk of further gold 
shipments, but H is not believed that 
any large amounts will be shipped.

House of Commons Organized 
This Morning. 

London, Aug. 13.— In the house of 
commons today -the speaker, William 
C. Gully, took the oath of office and 
took the chair at noon in semi-official 
attire. There was a poor attendance 
of members present. The gentlemen 
usher of the black rod appeared at the 
bar of the house of commons, coming 
from the house of lords at 12:10 and 
summoned the members af the house 
of lords where the royal commission 
signified her majesty's confirmation of 
the election of Mr. Gully as speaker. 

The latter, on returnli:g to the house 
of commons, went to the robing room 
and afterwards took the chair in the 
full robes of his office and soon an- 
nounced that her majesty had con- 
firmed his election. The members then 
proceeded to take the oath, the speaker 
going through that formality first of 
all. He was followed by the Rt. Hon. 
A. J. Balfour, Rt. Hon. George 
Goschen. Sir Michael Hicks Beach and 
other honi>rary followers. Mr. Itelfuur 
then signed the roll, followed by the 

need of honest, reliable young men

There will undoubtetUy be a large 
gathering at the Temple Opera house to- 
morrow evening, when the Gold and 
Silver club will hold an open meeting, to 
be addressed by C. A. Towne. The 
subject of his di?course will be bimetal- 
lism, and in view of the prominence 
which Mr. Towne's views upon this 
question have attained and the strong 
attacks made upon him by the single 
gold standard press of St. Paul and 
Minneapolis and a few of their echoes 
in the Sixth distriat. there will be much 
curiosky' to hear what he has to say 
upon the greatest questicwi now before 
the American puiblic. * 

Mr. Towne. in the letters which he ha.'« 
written to the Twin City papers, has 
shown an intimate acquaintance with 
the various phases of the monetary 
problem, and he is well qualified to dis- 
cuss the question. His bold challenge 
to the gold standard papers which as- 
sailed him to meet any speaker whom 
they might select and debate the merits 
of genuine bimetallism was not ac- 
cepted, because those papers well knew 
that he would riddle any arguments that 
can be produced in favor of the single 
gold standard. Their ostensible reason 
for declining was somewhat different, 
but it was easy to see that they did 
not accept the challenge because they 
■were afraid of the effect which would 
be produced by the defeat by Mr. Towne 
of their representative. The people of 
Duluth have not listened to Mr. Towne 
upon the financial question since the 
last campaign, and as the subject has 
increased in importance since that time 
there is no doubt that many will avail 
themselves of this opportunity of hear- 
ing him. 

There is no subject which is of greater 
interest to Duluth at the present time 
than the question whether the diversion 
of the water from Lake Michigan, which 
will flow through the Chicago drainage 
canal, will seriously affect the level of 
the great lakes and the depth of the St. 
Lawrence river. It is of the highest im- 
portance to Duluth that nothing be done 
which would lower the lake levels. The 
lowering of the levels would have a dis- 
astrrjus effect upon the lake commerce. 
and would result in lasting injury to Du- 
luth. A New York dispatch to The 
Herald today tells of the result of an 
investigation made by an expert from 
that city into this subject. His report 
is that there can be no question that an 
enormous quantity of water will be 
taken from Lake Michigan for the fill- 
ing of the canal, and /the best estimates 
that he could obtain were that this vol- 
ume will be constantly equal to one- 
third that contained in the Mississippi 
riv6r above the mouth of the Missouri, 
or three times that of the Ohio river. 
This is an immense amount of water to 
be diverted from the great lakes, and 
the commercial bodies in the leading 
lake cities should demand that the gov- 
ernment engineers be instructed to care- 
fully estimate what the effect will be 
on the lake levels. 

A recent number of the Engint'cring 
Record, in discus.sing this question, says 
that although the complete decision of 
such a question is of unusual hydraulic 
complexity, there are a few simple con- 
siderations which are conclusive in re- 
gard to the main points of the question. 
In the first place, it says, it is obvious 
that the general level of Lake Superior 
will scarcely be affected at all, in spite 
of the fact that the surface curve of its 
outflow would be changed slightly, and 
in tfie second place, it is to be borne in 
mind that the wind frequently causes 
changes in the levels of all the lakes of 
considerably more than a foot, and 
sometimes of two or three feet. Again, 
it is not supposed or estimated that the 
fliiw of the St. Lawrence river will be 
affeoted by more than 2 or 3 per cent, 

while the channel of the same river was 
increased in area by about 6 or S per 
cent by deepening the rapids below 
c>gdensburg in ISSl. Just hv>w much ad- 
ditional flow such a deepening of the 
channel -would produce can scarcely be 
computtHl with much accuracy, but the 
cntemplation of the ix^sslbilltles ot the 
I ase excited at that time a great deal o9 
alTprehension in regard to the level of 
Lake Ontario on the i>art of tlKvse mi)**! 
nearly interested. Assurances of the 
I'nltetl States engineers, to whom the 
matter was referred, were confirmed 
when the work was compleited and the 
(^)ntario level remained practically un- 
disturbed. The channel was deepene<l 
and its section thus enlarge*!, but the 
resulting surface slope, which is the 
product of more elements than the chan- 
nel depth alone, -was not suttlclently 
increased to sensibly afftvt the lake 

The Record says a rough intimation 
(and that only) of the effect on the leve^ 
of the lakes produced by the diversion 
of the water of the drainage canal can 
l>e obtainetl by supposing its flow to be 
distributed over a stream whose width 
is equal to that of the lake In question. 
The exact determination would involve 
such elements as the depth and con- 
figuraition of the effluent stream from 
the lake, with its surface slope, and 
would lead to a problem far too com- 
plicattHl for simple treatment. These 
general and approximate considera«tions 
will show (that a 2 or 3 per cent varia- 
tion in the flow of the St. Lawrence 
river will not sensibly affect the levels 
of the great lakes or the depth of thajt 
river itself. As a matter of faot the 
small variation in depth which will be 
produced will be lost much of the time 
in the manifold greater variations caused 
by the prevailing wind.s. It is well, con- 
cludes the Record, for the trustees of 
the sanitary district to give this aspect 
of the question full consideration, in 
order to effectually remove any possible 
apprehension, but it will be found in tha 
end. as it has been found in similar cases 
heretofore, that the general regimen of 
the bodies of water affected will be 
maintained without sensible change. 

The Herald trusts that the pre«llctions 
of the Engineering Record will be found 
to be correct, but it is well to have the 
matter thoroughly investigated before 
it is too laite to prevent the diversion of 
the immense amount of water which the 
completion of the canal will cause. The 
Duluth chamber of commerce might 
profitably give the subject considera- 
tion. Should the waters of the lakes be 
lowered by the diversion of the water 
of the drainage canal, the idea of ocean 
vessels reaching Duluth could be dis- 
missed forever. 

The New York Herald very correctly 
attacks the practice of referring to the 
names of the various yachts without 
the use of the definite article. It is 
incorrect to speak of the cup defender 
as Defender. She is the Defender. 
There is more in this small monosyl- 
lable than appears on the surface. Will- 
iam the Conqueror, William the Silent, 
Richard the Llon-Hearted — all such 
names gain in dignity by this apparent- 
ly trifling prefix. In like manner. 
though there are many O'Donoghues, 
there is only one man who has the 
right to style himself The O'Donoghue. 
For valid reasons, then, it is desirable 
that this forcible little word be used 
with the names of all vessels and with 
all other names except such as are 
distinctly outside its domain. The Her- 
ald has always followed this rule, and 
it is pleased to see its New York name- 
sake call down those papers that neg- 
lect it.

John Wanamaker hdmself admits that 
his profits last year were nearly 14.000.- 
000. It is very probable that a great; 
amount of this success it due to his 
most liberal advertising. He not only 
believes in the liberal use of printers' 
ink. but he emplf»ys the very bt«t talent 
to see that the ink is properly plactKl. 
His marvelous success in business is 
but another addition to the long list of 
great fortunes made through the me- 
dium of the display columns of the 
modern newspaper. 

The English elections in 1894 cost 
55.220.000. a comparatively small amount 
of money, but in 1880, 1886. and 18D2 the 
figures were much larger, being re- 
si>cctively, $9,000,000. $10,000,000 and $13,- 
000.000. The cost of the last election 
will reach $16,000,000 at least, which 
means that each vote is worth $3. Truljl 
the legislative functions are gratuitous 
in England, and corruption is unknown, 
according to the Kngllsh press. 


Minneapolis Journal: In view of the 
recent decision of the boat rowers that 
"no man who engages in manual labor 
for his support shall be deemed eligible 
to contest in amateur events," why 
wouldn't it be a good idea to extend 
the scope of the association and pro- 
hibit the man who works with his hands 
from going to congrress or teaching a 
school or writing a poem or planning 
a world s fair or some such thing as 
this, if he takes it into his head to do 
It. These Americans who toil with their 
hands are such an irrepressible lot. 
they are so i)rone to do all sorts of 
outlandish things like rising in the 
world, and making themselves felt as 
the most powerful factors in our na- 
tional life, and such things, that it 
.seems to be unwise to stop where the 
racers did. 

If we could only extend the scope of 
the association and take in among the 
inhibited some of those other muscle- 
workers who are all the time doing 
something unexpected, some Abraham 
Lincoln sort of a fellow, for instance, 
who will persist in leaving his rail- 
splitting to free a nation, or some tan- 
nery lad like Grant, who would rather 
lead the armies of his nation to victor>' 
than to scrape hides — some such people 
as this are coming to the front all the 
time and asserting themselves in a 
truly unbecoming manner. 

You simply cannot tell what minute 
some laboring man( wiu oreak forth and 
do sometliing great; they've been at it 
all through the last few centuries, and 
the only way to prohibit it is to put a 
stop to it by some sharply-drawn line 
of caste. The St. Paul gentlemen of 
leisure in the Minnesota Boat club ap- 
pear to have made a fine start toward 
the more complete squelching of the 
man w^ho works with his hands.

testate, setting forth that no personal es- 
tate has come Into his hands, thf 'lispo- 
sition thereof, and how much remains un- 
iHsposed of; the amount of expenses of 
ii'lministratlon as far as the same can be 
ascrtainc'd; and a description of all th<- 
rial estate, excepting the homestead, ol 
which said deceased died seized, and tii< 
condition and value of the respective p<jr-

ested in said estate, with their residences. ; 
and praying that license be to him grani- 
t-d to sell a part of said real estate. And it 
appearing by said petition that there is 
no personal estate In the hands of said 
administrator to pay said expenses of ad- 
ministration, and that It Is necessary for 
the payment of such expenses to sell a 
j(art of said real estate. 

It Is therefore ordered, that all persons 
interested in said estate, appear before 
this court on Thursday, the £«th day of 
August, ISiJf), at ten o'clock a. m.. at the 
probate office, in Duluth, in said county,

years, and still holds the responsible 
position of court reporter on that ex-

here In the advertising business. TTiere 
are many other Minnesota chaps here, 
all of whom are getting along very

"Lu, la lu, la lu, la lu, la lu." 

A harsh, falsetto voice floated out 
from the residence of C. M. Vance on 
West First street, warbling the f-a- 
miliar strains of the "Alabama Coon." 

"Great scott," remarked a passerby. 
"What a voice! I wonder if that's 
Vance trying to sing." 

The song continued, and as the two 
men in the street passed along they 
caught a glimpse of the singer behind 
a striped awning. It was Mr. Vance's 
parrot. It is a great animal. Not only 
does it entertain the household but all 
who may pass by, and whenever Poll's 
cage is hung out to give the bird the 
benefit of the sun there is a crowd of 
admirers standing on the sidewalk. 

The "Aloibama Coon" is a late edition 
to Poll's repertoire. Formerly it in- 
cluded "Yankee Doodle" and "Little 
Hrown Jug. " That is in the vocal line. 
The bird is also a. conversationalist of 
no mean order, and \vihen not engaged 
in singing it is indulging in an affec- 
tionate soliloquy or in making remarks 
upon the pnssersby. The other day a 
lady stopped and Poll said: 

"Oh my. what a pretty glrL" 

The lady blushed and passed on.

People on Superior street near First 
avenue east were treated to a decidedly 
funny impromptu performance Satur- 
day noon. Th<» actors were a young 
lady and a small yellowish dog. The 
stage was an awning over a clothing 
s-tore and the spirited action of the play 
attracted a considetnable crowd of 

The dog had stood in a front window 
of the flat over the clothing store bark- 
ing at the passing wagons. Becoming 
excited he fell over the ledge and landed 
on the sloping awning beneath the 
window. He enjoyed the fun immensely 
and capered around Larking in great 
glee. His mistress who by the way 
was young and pretty failed to appre- 
ciate the humor" of the situation and 
leaning from the window tearfully Im- 
plored the canine fiend to come within 

With canine obstinacy the dog would 
not go back but continued his .gym- 
nastic cxerci.S( ,s on thei cxlge of the awn-,- 
ing. In the meanwhile the boys below 
were throwing stones while tc^ar drops 
were falling in showers above. They 
thought of raising the awning but by 
so doing the dog would have been 
knocked off or burled in the folds anO. 
his mistress would not allow it. 

The situation remained vmchanged 
for about an hour. Finally a courage- 
ous urchin procured a long i)ole snd 
mounting on a soap box bej^an to worry 
the canine. He bit and growled at the 
end of the fxile and grew very mad. 
At last In his excitement he backed up 
within ntich of the window. There was 
a frenzied grasp at the pup's abbiv- 
vlatt^ tail and a vision of a disappear- 
ing canine. Afterwan's there were long 
and anguished howls from the room 

above the awning. The crowd dispersed

I answer the people ask nothing more. 
But both the council committee and the 
News Tribune omit to state the cost to 
replace It in 1891 was by the report of 
the city engineer now on file and as 
published Nov. 19, 1891, $784,242. De- 
duct therefrom for decrease in cost at

be duly considered and passed upon; 
To the Postofl^ice OflTyclals and Em- 

l)loyes of Duluth, Minn.: 

Gentlemen— Being enraged beyond 
longer possible endurance by the Ig- 
nominious defeat suffered on July 4 at 
your hands, and although our com- 
plete st(x;k of mognaniniity has been 
fruitlessly exhausted in our effort to 
forget that indignity, with lncnta.«ed 
mortification and growing vexation the 
only result, uncontrollable chagrin and 
coveted revenge renders further amnesty 
an impossibility. Those laurels, there- 
fore, you shall no longer continue to 
wear in iK-^ace. t>n Labor day, Sept. -, 
proximo, at your own campfires in 
your own famous city they shall be 
battc-d from your brows, unites s-ioner 
suurendered. Very respectfully yours 
West Superior Postofl:ice OflUcials and

Ed Shepard won easily fn»m Harry 
P^innick last night. The latter vyas in 
poor condition and he was not in t le

peatedly. Finally Finnick l'>"\^'J^>-

counted, and he did it oivee too often. 
The fight was awarded to Shepard on 
that ground. . j j. i. 

Both men did some fairly good duck-

one. though neither showid any grent 
amount of science. Shepard pushed 
the fight, but left himself open to pun-

Aid. Cox Withdrew His Hum- 
orous Resignation and 
Presented Anotiier. 

The waterworks special election reso- 
lutian was not brought up at the coun- 
cil meeting" last night because of an un- 
exrx'Cted factor that bobbed up at the 
afternoon: caucus. This was the sturdy 
demand of Aldermen Lerch and Olaf- 
son that tha gas plant be included with 
the waterworks in the purchase pix>posi- 
tion. Several other members of the 
council joined the alderman from the 
Third in his opinions. The special 
waterworks committe<' met at 1:30 
o'clock and deliberated on the form of 
the ballot to be used, and a resolution 
calling for a special eholion had been 
prepared, but the whole matter was 
laid over a week at the caucus in order 
to qui€<t 'the gas enthusiasts. 

And so it was that the report of the 
committee on poiblic property and build- 
ings. which had l)eenexamining the plant 
ax?companied by the city engineer, was 
the only form in which tlie water ques- 
tion came up last night. The report was 
as follows: 

"In accordance with the resolution of 
your honorable body, passed Aug. 5, 
1895. an examination was made by your 
committee of the condition of the water 
plants covered by the proposition of the 
Duluth Gas and Water company, dated 
July 13, 1895, as to whether any depre- 
ciaition had taken place in the value of 
said plants by reason of said plants 
having been for some tifme In use, or by 
reason of said plants, or the machinery 
thereof, or any part thereof, having be- 
come morei or less obsolete by reason of 
subsequent improvements in said kind 
of machinery since the making thereof, 
and that the condition of said plants 
was ftmnd to be as follows: 

"The reservoir was found full of water 
to the overnow. and i;i charge of a 
watchman to prevent improper use or 
fouling of the water. Tht- reservoir is 
in an incomplete state, but appears to 
tie in good condition so far as con- 
structed, and shoi\\-s no evidence of de- 
preciation or need of repair. 

"The Lakeside plant consists of a 
brtck pump and boilei' house, one Blake 
pump, one Blake boiler feed pump, one

are not fired up except in emergencies. 

"The hydrants, so far as seen, were 
found t*o l>e newly and neatly painted. 

"As a result of such an examination as 
your committee was enabled to make 
without a series of tests with expert as- 
sistance, and without en/tering into the 
quesitioniof the capacity of the plant for 
supplying the needs of the city, but 
taking the power plants as they exist, 
your committee is of the opinion that 
the plants specified above are in good 
repair and condition; that they are of 
modern construction except in the in- 
stances heretofore noted, and that they 
are worth today the amount it would 
cost to repla<:-e them with new machin- 
ery of equal capacity and same makes, 
less a small percentage to cover un- 
avoidable wear and tear." 

The reading of the report occupied 
most of the fifty-minute session, and 
the aldermen seemed in a hurry to es- 


Alderman Cox had prepared a funny 
Ifrtter of resignation of his position on 
the health board in the forenoon. After 
its publication in The Herald the Sixth 
ward humorist weakened, and when 
the communication appeared it was con- 
siderably modified. Alderman Nelson 
demanded that the original be read and 
covered Alderman Cox with blushes. 
The resignation was accepted by, a vote 
of 9 to 5. 

A long petition was presented by the 
residents of Lake avenue, who com- 
plained of the unsightly, unsafe and 
malodorous debris of the Lake avenue 

The board of fire commissioners were 
given permission to advertise for bids 
for 5000 feet of new hose. -After pro-

board of health was authorized to pur- 
chase a $30 dump cart to collect garb- 

Noble Samngon, sealer of weights and

sented theh- reports and some routine 
business was considered.

National water <tube boiler, one tubular 

"The pump and boiler house are ap- 
parently in good repair. This and the 
other buildings of the company are to- 
day worth considerably less than they 
cost to build, owing to the natural and 
unavoidable -deterioration and to the 
present low prices. 

"The Blake pump is a duplex pump 
with 16-inch steam cylinders, lO'i-inch 
water cylinder and 12-inch stroke, with 
a nominal capacity of 1,000,000 gallons 
per day. This is a standard make of 
pumps, well constructed, and so far as 
your commfttee was able to observe, 
provided with modern fittings and ac- 
cessories except an automatic governor. 
This pump has been in use for some 
years, having been originally in the Du- 
luth plant, and could t»o duplicated to- 
day for considerably less m<mey than 
was originally paid for it. The pistons 
at the water end are somewhat worn. 

"The Blake boiler feed pump has S- 
inch steam cylinders, .5-inch water cyl- 
inders and 10-inch stroke. It is used to 
feed the ma-ins under ordinary condi- 
tions, the larger Blake pump not being 
in use but a small part of the time. This 
pump is in about the same condition as 
the larger one. 

"The National water tube boiler is of 
70-horFe power and appears to be in 
good condition. It is in constant use. 
The horizontal tubular boiler is of 20- 
horse power and is in good condition. 
It is not used except when the other one 
is being washed out. 

"The Duluth plant consists of a stone 
boiler and pump house and frame coal 
shed, one Holly-Gaskill pump, one 
Worlhlneton pump, one Blake pump, 
one small boiler feed pump and a bat- 
tery of four horizontal tubular boilers. 
The pump and boiler house is kept in 
goo<l repair. 

"The Holly-Gaskill pump is a hori- 
zontal duplex compound condensing 
pump, with 24-inch high pressure cylin- 
ders, 42-inch low pressure cylinders. 
19H-inch water plungers and 36-lnch 
stroke, with a nominal capacity of u,- 
000,000 gallons per day This is one of 
the best makes on the market and Is a 
very complete and modern pump, with 
automatic governor, condenser, heater 
and all modern appurtenances. It has 
been in use about five years and is in 
Hrst-class condition. It is in daily 
with an average of nearly 4,000.000 gal- 
lons per day, and has run as high aa 
7.000.000 gallons. It is u.t present doing 
all of tflie work in the supply of Duluth 
and West Duluth. thr other pumps in 
this iilan-t not being in use ordinarily. 

"Tht- Worthington pumf) is a duplex, 
tandem compound pump, with indepen- 
dent condenser. 19V^-ineh high pressure 
cylinders. 33a^-inch low pressure cylin- 
ders, 17V2-inch water plungers and 21- 
inch stroke, nominal capacity 3.000.000 
gallons per dav. This is ai pump of high 
grade manufacture- and is in first-cla.s.s 
repair. It was plac«-<l in the works in 
ISSS, but is not at pre^nt in use except 
in emergencie.«?, and has been used very 
little in the last five years. Before the 
erection of the :Holly-Gaskill pump It 
was supplying all of the service and 
pumping nearly 4,000.0(»0 gallons per 
day. It is not a,s econ<tmical in fuel a» 
the Holly-Gaskill. and should l)e pro- 
Tiilrd v.ith a Heegle duty attachment 
and automatic governor if it Is to b-- 
put in constant iL«<e.

It was one of th-- original duplicat- 
pumps of the Duluth plant and ha.s don.

has not been u.sed to any extent since 
th«- Worthington pump was erected in 
1888. It Is connected up and ready for

are of 80-horse jwtwer each and are in

The success of the flower show to be 
given on Friday evening at Panton & 
Watson's store becomes more assured as 
each day passes, and Cap«t. Miller is 

now very sanguine as to its outcome. A 
large number of prizes have been offered 
and this will induce the entry and dis- 
play of a large variety and fine quality 
of flowers and plants. Duluth can pro- 
duce any number and any quantity of 
beautiful flowers, and this will ffive the 
opportunity to see what can be pro- 

The show is to be given for the benefit 
of the Associated Charities, and 10 cents 
admission will be charged, but this is 
the only expense. A fine program of 
music is being arranged, and will be 
given, a number of Duluth's best sing- 
ers and instrumental performers ap- 

The display of flowers will be finely 
arranged. Mr. Anderson, Panton & 
Wartson's florist, will have charge of the 
•work of preparing the exhibit, and it 
will be beautifully and artistically done. 
Three floors will be used. 

All those who will enter flowers ;iiay 
begin bringing them Thursday morning, 
and all ought to be in by Friday morn- 
ing early. Those sending flowers will 
please attach their names and specify 
the disposition to be made of them.

Cured by the Pyramid Pile Cure 

There are plenty of pile cures which 
give relief and sometimes cure a mild 
case of piles, but there is only one which 
can be depended upon with certainty to 
cure obstinate, long-standing cases, and 
that is the Pyramid Pile Cure. 

Endorsements and testimonials are 
received dally from men and women 
whose irutegrity and reliability are 
above question, and Ln this connection a 
letter received from the Rev. James H. 
Wesbrook, of Bowne, Mich., may be of 
interest to pile sufferers who have 
sought in vain for a cure. He says: 

I have used the Pyramid Pile Cure and 
I know that it is all that is claimed for 
it. I have been troubled with piles 
more or less for about eighteen years 
and I had tried other remedies, but the 
piles grew worse until about ten months 
ago I used the Pyramid Pile Cure. It 
gave almost Instant relief and I have 
been free from piles ever since. Rev. 
James H. Wesbrook. 

The remedy seems to act equally well 
In every form of piles, blind bleeding, 
protruding or itching. It stops all pain 
almost immediately, allays irritation 
and removes constipation, and anyone 
who has suffered the annoyance and 
pain of a rectal trouble will apprin^iate 
the excellent results which invariably 
follow the first application of the Pyra- 

The Pyramid Pile Cure is prepared by 
the Pyramid Drug company, of Albion, 
Mich., and for sale by druggists every- 

Two sizes, 50 cents and $1. Sold by all

St. Paul, Aug. 14. — The state census 
bureau this morning completed the cen- 
sus count of EHiluth. andf while the gain 
has not been up to the expectations of 
some of the enthusiasts, who figured 
that it would purely be 100* per cent, it 
ought to be satisfactory, even to the 
ambitious city at the head of the lakes. 
The census officials decline to give out 
the figures, but it has been very close 
td 59 per cent. Duluth hadi a population 
of 33.115 in 1890, so, according to the rate 
of increase indicated, it will now 
have 52.646.

the court Gen. McNulta took a stand 
upon the steps of the Clark street en- 
trance to the court house. A little 
group of attorneys and stockholders 
surrounded the receiver and a small 
crowd of people gathered, ciirious to see 
the transfer of the great property. 
There had been rumors of a protest, 
but the monotonous reading of the court 
decree proceeded without interruption. 

Charles Allen, one of the attorneys, 
acted as master of ceremonies, backed 
by United StMes Marshal Arnold and 
several deputies. President Rice and 
Secretary Goflf represented the reorgan- 
ization committee, with Levy Mayer, 
their attorney. At the conclusion of the 
reading of the court order. Gen. Mc- 
Nulta announced that heiwas ready for 
bids for the seventeen distilleries com- 
prising the property of the Distilling 
and Cattle Feeding company. Levy 
Mayer stepped forward and in the name 
of the reorganization committee bid 

The short and stout receiver climbed 
a step or two higher, and elevati^ig his 
voice, proceeded tdl fulfill the duties of a 
professional auctioneer. The round- 
faced little general strained his voice to 
its utmost as he called out, "I am bid 
$9,800,000 for the property of the Dis- 
tilling and Cattle Feeding' company; $9,- 
SOO.OOO. Do I hear any more bids? This 
is a public sale and anyone is per- 
mitted to bid for the plants." There 
was) a pause, but no one seemed to want 
the plants more than the reorganization 
committee and no other bids were 

"I hear no more bids," said Gen. Mc- 
Nulta, "then down she goes; $9,800,000, 
once; $9,800,000, twice; $9,800,000, three 
times and sold!" and the property of 
the great trust, capitalized at $35,000,000, 
changed hands with all the formality 
of a sale of a $4 brass watch at a county 

Mr. Mayer presented a certified check 
for $50,000 as a guarantee of good faith, 
and after examining the bit of paper, 
the receiver announced himself satis- 
fled and declared the sale completed. 
The little crowd of attorneys immedi- 
ately left the co>urt house and proceeded 
with the completion of the necessary

How Hawaii Could Be Sure of 

Minneapolis, Aug. 14.— Capt. Judson 
N. Cross, a prominent attorney of this 
city, writes to President Dole at Hono- 
lulu this morning a letter containing a 
novel suggestion) as to how Hawaii 
might anneoc herself to the United 
States wKthout presidential interven- 
tion. His proposition Is that Hawaii 
elect delegates to the American con- 
gress and demand that they be seated 
on the same ijasis as territorial dele- 

Congress, Capt. Cross says, would seat 
them and that would settle the mat- 
ter. He maintains that there are his- 
torical precedents and logical reasons 
for such a course of procedure. 


Crops Seriously Damaged by 
Heavy Hail. 

Minneapolis, Aug. 14.— A Rush City, 
Minn., special toithe Journal says a ter- 
rific hail storm struck four miles west 
of there at 8 o'clock last night and in 
fifteen minutes did great damage. Hall 
stones larger than hen's eggs fell, and 
all exposed glass was broken and the 
window sash crushed In. 

Corn and potatoes were hammered 
into the ground. Tho grain was mostly 
In shock and escaped. 

Omaha's A. P. A. Muddle Left 
to Supreme Court. 

Omaha, Aug. 14.— The A. P. A. police 
and fire commission met at 10 o'clock In 
rooms selected in the city hall by the 
council for their use,' and sent a note to 
the old commission asking for a confer- 
ence. The old board consemed, and the 
session ^•as held behind closed doors. 

The A. P. A. commission received a 
long letter from Chief of Police White 
in reply to their demand that he recog- 
nize the A. P. A. commissioners. The 
letter, while courteous in the extreme, 
was nevertheless very firm in tone and 
closed as follows: "I have carefully 
read the decision rendered by Hon. J. G. 
Hopewell In the injunction proceedings 
just tried, and in said decision a para- 
graph appears iwherein he says that the 
plaintiffs have the right to remain In 
peaceable possession and to exercise the 
functions of said office until otherwise 
ordered in a proper legal proceeding. 

'Now because of this proceeding taken 
by Judge Hopewell, I feel that I am 
compelled to recognise and obey the 
orders of the honorable mayor and the 
board of fire and police commissioners, 
now acting and In possession of the con- 
trol of the affairs of the board until 
such time as the question has been 
legally decided by the courts, when I 
will cheerfully recognize the board that 
is to be the legal board. 'In the mean- 
time, I deem it my duty as chief of 
police to see that the law and the ordi- 
nances of the city are enforced. Hopmg 
that this answer will meet with your 
favorable approval and consideration, I 
remain, yours truly, Martin J. White, 
Chief of Police." 

The old commission then defined its 
position thus: "We believe that we are 
the only lawful board of police and fire 
commissioners of Omaha, and in the 
language of Judge Hopewell have the 
right to remain peacefully in possession 
and to exercise the functions of said 
offices until otherwise ordered in a 
proper legal proceeding. This is not new 
law; it is the application of long and 
well established principles of the facts 
in the case before him. This declara- 
tion of the law has the sanction of the 
best judicial tribunals and the approval 
of the ablest legal authority. If we have 
the 'right to remain in the peaceable 
possession' and perform the duties of our 
offices until these rights are taken from 
us by an order of the court in a legal 
proceeding, it follows as sure as day Is 
not night, that any other method, 
whether direct or indirect, or whether 
by fraud or violence tends to dispossess 
us of those rights. These rights, with 
which we are invested by law. we shall 
not only assert, but with firmness main- 
tain. Without violating any law, we 
shall strive to execute the law in a 
proper and dignified manner." 

After an animated discussion, the old 
fire and police commission refusing any 
compromise, except on the basis of per- 
mitting the supreme court to pass on the 
situation, the A. P. A. commission con- 
sented, and it was agreed that the old 
commission should continue to conduct 
the offices of the city until a decision was 
rendered in the case. This was con- 
sidered a definite settlement of the case. 

.Washington, Aug. 14.— The corridors 
of the Metropolitan hotel were crowded 
early today with delegates of the con- 
ference of sliver Democrats called to 
meet there today for the purpose of 
agreeing upon a line of policy to be pur- 
sued in the interest of silver in the party. 
While the call for the conference, issued 
by Senators Harris, Turpie and Jones, 
of Arkansas, did not specify the hour, 
the meeting was postponed until noon. 

The forenoon was spent in a general 
exchange of views, and in formulating 
plans for the meeting. There was a 
rather larger attendance than had been 
counted on and the hotel is crowded by 
delegates and silver sympathizers. The 
leaders of the movement were anxious 
to correct the impression that it was in- 
tended the meeting should be a mass 
convention. They appeared to think 
this idea had been scattered broadcast 
by the gold men with the view of mak- 
ing it appear in the end that the meet- 
ing had been a failure. There were 
consequently numerous requests that 
the newspapers should make it clear 
that it never Intended the gathering 
should be more than a conference among 
leaders of the silver sentiment In the 
Democratic party. 

Among those who appeared early at 
the hotel were Senators Jones, of 
Arkansas; Daniel and Harris and ex- 
Senators Jarvls, of North Carolina, and 
Walsh, of Georgia; Hon. C. Casey 
Young, of Tennessee, who has con- 
ducted the correspondence concerning 
the conference, on behalf of the sena- 
torial committee, and Representatives 
Cox, of Tennessee; Otey, of Virginia; 
Livingston, of Georgia; McNeill, of 
Arkansas; and Brookshire, of Indiana. 
Secretary of State Hinrichsen, of Illi- 
nois, was a prominent figure in the hotel 
lobby from early morning. No man 
present was more generally sought than 
he. There was an exceptionally large 
delegation from Missouri, Including Gov- 
ernor Stone, Secretary of State Steph- 
ens, Judge Hill, William Ruby, a bank 
president, and George Allen, a railroad 

Joseph H. Daniels, of North Carolina, 
was one of the busiest of those present. 
Olney >[pwell, secretary of the state 
Democratic committee of Colorado, was 
the only representative from that state. 
"We don't need a big delegation till 
people know how we stand," he said. J. 
F. Saulsbury, of Delaware, was the soli- 
tary representative of that state. E. W. 
Carmack. of the Memphis Commercial- 
Appeal; State Senator Wenfleld, of Vir- 
ginia; Allen W. Clark, of Indiana; John 
S. Beard, of Florida, and Congressman- 
elect Lockhart, of North Carolina, were 
also among the delegates who arrived 

Mr. Casey Young, In reply to ques- 
tions, said that his correspondence In- 
dicated that about two-thirds of the 
states of the Union would be represent- 
ed, and he confirmed the statement that 
the meeting was intended to be simply 
a conference of Democratic leaders to 
shape the party policy on the silver 
question as far as possible. 

The meeting was called to order at 12 
o'clock by Senator Harris, who moved 
that Senator Jones be called to the chair 
as temporary chairman, which motion 
carried unanimou.sly. George M. 
Loucerone, of Illinois, was chosen sec 
retary of the meeting. The meeting be 
gan behind closed doors

taking the chair, confining himself to 
thanking the conference for the honor, 
and expressing the hope that the pro- 
ceedings would be harmonious and pro- 
ductive of good results. Senator Daniel 
offered a resolution providing for the ap-

Feeling About the Japan 

Cabinet Crisis in Wasti- 

ington Circles. 

Minister Hayashi. Japan's 

Representative at Peicin, 

Is Busy. 

Negotiations With China Are 

at the Base oF the 


Washington. Aug, 14.— Members of 
the diplomatic corps who are informed 
of affairs In the Orient think It prob- 
able that if there has been any crisis in 
the Japanese cabinet, as represented 
In recent dispatches, that It may be 
due to developments made In connec- 
tion with the negotiations between 
China and Japan, which are understood 
to be now^ in progress at Pekln between 
the new Japanese minister there and 
tbe Chinese authorities. 

It is unders«to«.>d here that the labor 
of shaping the new relations between 
the two Oriental empires has been left 
largely to Mr. Hayashi, the new Japan- 
ese minister at Pekin, and that this 
work embraces many details sup- 
plementary to the original treaty, 
including besides the establish- 
ment of commercial relations be- 
tween the two countries, the 
fixing of the amount of indemnity for 
the surrender of Laio Tung peninsular. 
This work would naturally involve a re- 
view of the original treaty, and it may 
have developed facts which have opera- 
ted to open up the entire question and 
to give the critics new basis for their 
assaults upon Count Ito and Viscount 
Matsu. who negotiated the treaty of 

Their surrender of the peninsula, with 
Its splendid fortifications at Port Arthur, 
aroused much criticism at the time, and 
If recent occurrences have tended to 
show that China is disposed to evade a 
portion of her part of the contract, this 
would serve to open the old feeling of 
dissatisfaction in Japan. Much as has 
been said ab<iut the surrender by Japan 
of Lalo Tung, it appears now Japan 
never received any definite assurance 
as to the indemnity she was to receive. 

The general supposition existed that 
there was a tacit understanding that 
there should be added not less than 
100.000.000 taels. but it now seems that 
the entire arrangement for the sur- 
render of the concession was made with 
the interfering European powers, who 
contented themselves with securing 
Japan's promise to keep off the Chinese 
mainland, leaving Japan to arrange with 
China as» to the amount of the indemnity 
and to provide for its collection. 

If China is showing a disposition to 
take advantage of the attitude of 
Russia. France and Germany, as is un- 
derstood to be the case, it would natur- 
ally follow (that the discontents in Jai>an 
would take advantage of the oppor- 
tunity to renew their criticism of the 
government for not holding to what it 


A Sensation Sprung by Dur- 
ranfs IM other. 

San Francisco, Aug. 14. — Another sen- 
sation has developed in the Durrant 
cajae. Whether it is a casC of jury brib- 
ing or a bold attempt at blackmail, the 

police and others who have investigated 
the matter are unwilling, and probably 
unable, to state with positiveness. The 
faot remains that Mrs. Durrant, mother 
of the young man who is accused of 
murdering Minnie Williams and 
Blanche Lamont. was approached re- 
cently by a mysterious woman, whose 
desire was to sell something of extreme 
importance to the safety of the young 
man. It was intimated that at least 
three of the jurors already acceprted 
could be influenced to vote» for acquittal 
but money would be required. 

Mrs. Durrant not only spurned the 
offer, but informed the attorneys for 
her son and also notified the police of 
the nature of the offer made to her. The 
woman is Mrs. Sarah G-roger, who re- 
sides ajt 516 L.eavenworth street. While 
she denies having offered any jurors for 
sale, she admits having visited Mrs. 
Durrant and offering for coin to bring 
about the accomplishment of some- 
thing which would be invaluable to the 
defense of Theodore Durrant. Mrs. 
Groger said she only acted as the agent 
of a third party, and did so innocently.

Prince Yang Ho Pak. a Refugee 
From Corea. 

Victaria, B. C. Aug. 14.— Prince Tang 
Ho Pak. the refugee Corean minister 
of the Interior, who fled from Seoul a 
month ago to avoid arrest at the in- 
stigation of the queen, arrived on the 
steamer Empress of Japan. He sought 
an asylum in Japan, but an attempt 
was to have been maide to cause his ar- 
rest on the charge of plotting against 
the life of the queen, and to prevent any 
complications he was advised to leave. 
The United States he regarded as the 
best asylum, and to this country he has 

He pretended to know no English, and 
when an interpreter had been pro- 
vided, did not care to talk, merely say- 
ing: "I am an exile from my country 
and am going to the United States after 
a stay of two weeks in Japan. How long 
I win remain in the United States I can- 
not say. I am unjustly forced out of 
Corea, but what the future will bring 
forth no one can say." 

Prince Pak is about 40, small, but has 
an intellectual face. This is his second 
exile, having gone to Corea a year ago 
after ten years in Japan. The night 
after the Empress left Hong Kong an 
explosion of gas occurred In her coal 
bunkers. One coal passer was killed 
and four badly burned. One of the lat- 
ter is not expected rta live.

Washington, Aug. 14.— The official re- 
turns for August show that the prospec- 
tive fruit crop of the country, taken as 
a whole, is much larger than for several 
years. The report follows: 

Apples— The crop met with no serious 
obstacles to development during July. 
The influences upon which the proper 
maturity of the crcup naturally depends 
have been so favorable that a very gen- 
eral Increase in the index figures has 
resulted. There are, however, some very 
important states in whkh the crop 
promised less than half the normal 
production. This is the case in Maine, 
New Hampshire, Vermont, Michigan 
and Wisconsin, the percentages rang- 
ing from 28 in Michigan to 49 in Ver-

land, Nonrth Carolina, Arkansas, Ten- 
nessee, West Virginia. Indiana, Mis- 
souri. Nebraska, Colorado and the Pa- 
cific coast states, excluding states not 
commercially important, have a condi- 
tion of 80 or over, and of ithese six. 
New Jersey, Kentucky, Arkiansas, Indi- 
ana, Missouri and Colorado are also 
over 90. Kentucky going to 101. Ohio 
and Illinois, with condition 73 and 72 
respectively, stand between the high 
and the low. The crop is reported gen- 
erally short in the northern but good in 
the southern portions of these states. 
The general average of conditions Is 
71.5. against 44 last year. 

Peaches — The average condition of 
peaches. Aug. 1. is 83.3, against 22.3 in 
1894. The prospective yield has de- 
clined heavily in Delaware, where about 
one-third the normal crop Is now in- 
dicated. New Jersey has suffered the 
most. Conditions are high in Connecti- 
cut and Georgia, respectively 92 and 104. 
Maryland hopes for a two-thirds crop. 
Virginia is going under that propor- 
tion. A very small crop Is Indicated 
for Ohio and Mkrhigau, about half the 
normal product. Much complaint of 
dropping and rotting is made on the 
coast, the latter especially in the 


And The Scheme to Oust N. 
P. Receivers. 

Seattle. Wash., ."Aug. 14.— Prospects 
are good for a new move In the Northern 
Pacific controversy. As the result of a 
long conference of the attorneys for the 
receivers. It Is understood that Silas W. 
Pettlt, who had forced the i.?sue on 
them, will ask for an order citing the 
receivers all along the line to appear in 
Judge Hanford's court, Aug. 22. the 
date set for the hearing of the applica- 
tion to have the receivers removed and 
new ones appointed. 

His object is said to be to bring on 
new evidence to show that the receivers 
are working in collusion with the Hill- 
Adams combination to secure the North- 
ern Pacific for the Oreat Northern. 
Such evidence would be in support of a 
motion to oust, and the atltorneya have 
gathered, evidently to resist Mr. Pettit. 
if the order Is obtained. It will include 
William N. Cromwell, general counsel, 
of New York, and General Manager 
Kendrlck, of St. Paul. 

Washington, Aug. 14.— The condition 
of the crops of Europe is reviewed In 
the rt^ort of the Eafopean agent of the 
agricultural department for August. It 
shows fair crops in moat of the coun- 
tries, except Great Britain, as follows: 

Great Britain— The persistent drought 
has resulted In injury to all crops, in- 
jury widespread and very serious. The 
Agricultural Gazette considers the re- 
ports as Indicating a condition of things 
worse than has existed in any year 
since the black year, 1879. From April 
until the end of June no rain fell in 
Kngland to speak of, and the sun was 
so scorching as to almost bum up 
some of the spring crops and to stunt 
all the spring sowings. When the July 
storms came harvesting was just be- 
ginning in the earlier districts and the 
rain was thus Inopportune. While the 
hay crop was very light throughout the 
whole country, it was particularly good 
quality and the prospects for a second 
crop and for clover a?e most promising 
and the condition of pastures is encour- 
aging to graziers. 

France — The wheat area is known to 
be somewhat reduced in France and a 
smaller total output than that of last 
year is to be expected. The drought 
has somewhat affected the Southern 
piovinces, but throughout the country 
generally nothing Is to be desired. A 
much larger than an average acreage 
is under cultivation and much atten- 
tion has bDen given to 
this crop. The pro.tracted 
rain at harvest time, has, how- 
ever, materially Injured the most sen- 
sitive of cereals and a considerable part 
of the crop is expected to be stained 
and discolored. 

Germany— Crops generally In Prussia 
are an average, though rejwrts have 
come of violent rain storms and hail 
storms extending over large areas and 
badly laying the grain. From Saxony, 
Hanover, Brandenburg, Pomera and 
Posen come similar reports. The crops 
of Germany are expected to be an aver-4 
age and accounts from the country are 
generally more favorable than they 
were two or three weeks ago. 

Austria-Hungary- The wheat har- 
vest Is completed in the Southern and 
Central Hungarian provinces. The col- 
or is deficient, but the Quality sur- 
passes and dominates. Wheat is re- 
ported from Austria as in better condi- 
tion than rye. 

Italy— The wheat Is all gathered by 
this time and the agricultural depart- 
ment reports an abundant crop in the 
north and a bare average in the cen- 
tral and .southern parts. Excessive 
rains and moisture caused the falling 
off In the southern part of the country. 

Roumania— An unofliclal report puts 
the wheat harvest at 56,000,000 to 60,- 
000,000 bushels of excellent quality. 

Russia— An average wheat crop is ex- 
pected, and rye Is reported as likely 
to turn out much better In quantity 
and quality than was expected a montl^ 


Seven Thousand Suing 
$24,000,000 Estate. 


San Francisco, Aug. 14.— The heirs of 
Don Jose De Jesu Noe have begun suit 
in the superior court to regain posses- 
sion of a tract of land comprising over 
6000 acres, known as the San Miguel 
ranch. In ithis city. The suit is based 
on recent translations of the Mexican 
law, which make it impossible for a hus- 
band to deed away his wife's half of any 
community property of which they may 
be possessed. Noe received the ranCh 
as a grant from the Mexican govern- 
ment in 1848, before California was ad- 
mitted to the Union. Five years later 
after the dearth of his wife he sold the 
land to William J. Horner. 

Noe's heirs contest the right to sell 
his wife's share of their community 
property, and claim the Whole sale Is 
invalidated. The state supreme court, 
in dealing with similar cases, having 
their origin under Mexican law, has re- 
peatedly sustained the right of a hus- 
band to sell community property, but 
recent translations of the code are said 
to have changed the court's interpreta- 
tion of the statute. 

The property Is estimated to be worth 
$24,000,000, and its ownership as now 
valued is divided among 7000 persons. 

Hermosillo. Mctc., Aug. 14.— F. T. 
Jeburt, John L. Morrison and Henry 
Campbell, three Americans from Min-

Tcburon island on a hunting expedi- 
tion. They were due to return ten day? 
ago, but no tidings have been recelv i 
from 'them and It Is believed they h; 
fallen victims to the Indians, who h-..e 
cannibalistic tastes. The party were 
advised not to visit the island. bTit thejt 
stated they were In search of adventure 
and they would not heed the advice

Use All the Tobacco You Want Till Your •*Crav- 

ing" is Gone. 

NARCOTI-CURE is the only remedy in the world that acts 
directly on the nerves and drives the nicotine from the system 
in from four to ten days, It leaves the patient in better 
health than before taking, and is warranted free from any 
injurious ing-redients. 

NARCOTI-CURE is popular because it allows the patient to 
use all the tobacco he wants while under treatment, or until 
the "craving" and "hankering" are gone. It is then no sac- 
rifice to throw away tobacco forever. 

NARCOTI-CURE is sold at the uniform price of $5.00 a bot- 
tle, and one bottle cures. 

Money refunded if a cure is not effected when taken ac- 
cording to the directions.

A visit to the western portion of the 
city shows that there is an awakening 
among the in<lustries which means bet- 
ter times in the future. The old furni- 
ture factory which stood idle so long 
a time is running full blast under the 
manag'ement of Holston, Bleloch & Co. 
with ever>- appearance of being on a 
firm basis and with the prospect of a 
perpetual motion gait regardless of hard 
times or other difficulties. 

A little beyond or a short distance 
up the river is another industry of 
which mention has never been made 
in the newsi>apers. and which is yet 
considered in its infancy but if present 
prospects and energy may be taken as 
a criterion it will so<^n be worthy to be 
classed with the best institutions in 
the vicinity. The industry referred to 
is the packiriig house of Balstad & Co. 
where at present several hands art- 
steadily employed and abt>ut twenty- 
five animals killed each week for the 
home market. 

The most inspiring sight in this lo- 
cality, however, is the blazing fur- 
naces of the York steel plant where Mr. 
York himself in a suit «rf blue overalls 
was found to be directing a force of 
men. The open hearth furnaces were 
heated up to the highest degree in th» 
process of converting scrap and pig 
into the steel ingots.

W. L. Miller, bookkeeper for Panton 
& Watson, received a painful injury 
early last evening as he w-as traveling 
towards Spirit Lake on his bicycle. 
When near the intersection of Fifty- 
ninth and Grand avenues he accidently 
came into collision with a team and 
wa.s -suddenly thrown against the street 
curbing. His face and hands were bad- 
ly lacei-ated and torn and for a time it 
was thiiught that he also received in- 
ternal injuries. He was taken to Dr. 
Grahams office where an examination 
proved that no btmes were broken and 
that the only injuries received were of 
an external nature. 

league met today at the Great Northern 
hotel. Various committees were ap- 
pointed and plans were discussed for 
the full campaign. Much dissatisfaction 
with Chicago as league headquarters 
was expressed, with a strong sentiment 
favoring a removal to the East. The 
committee men declared that they had 
not been properly treated In Chicago, 
and although action was deferred until 
late this afternoon, it was believed that 
Washington would be selected as the 
headquarters of the league. 

After an adjournment for luncheon, 
the committee met again at 3 o'clock to 
hear committee reports and for the elec- 
tion of a national treasurer to fill the 
vacancy made by the death of the late 
E. D. Harper, of New York. The 
sessions were presided over by Gen. Mc- 
Alpin. of New York, the newly elected 
president of Ihe league. 

St. Paul. Aug. 14.— The body of 
Charles Roman was found alongside 
the outgoing tracks of the Northern 
Pacific road at the foot of Hopkins 
street hill at 4:20 this morning. It was 
terribly nKingled' and^ had evidently 
been run down by a pas.sing train, but 
what train is not known. The body 
was discovered by the crew of a s'wttcW 
engine. The supposlt/on is thnt he had 
been drinking auvf while in a state of 
intoxication wandered on to the track 
and was run down. He has no rellatives 
living here .so far as known.

St. Paul. Aug. 14.— The Catholic 
clergy of the arch will go into 
annual i-etreat at St. Thomas semi- 
ruary, Merriam park, next Monday. 
There will be about 31.5 priests in at- 
tendance, only those exempted by the 
archbishops for the purpose of attend- 
ing sick calls in their parishes, being 
permitted to be absent. The exercises 
will begin Monday evening and Arch- 
bishop Ireland will direct In person on 
this occasion. It is four years ago sincei 
his grace took charge of this diocese. 

St. Paul. Aug. 14.— Ex-Governor And- 
rew Burke, of Duluth. was at the* Wind- 
sor today. He hasi been on an extended 
trip through the Dakotas. Duluth. he 
says, will largely increase her handling 
of grain. The crop in North Dakota will 
scarcely come up to the amount of the 
supply "in 1891, but it will be of a better 
quality. The falling off Is due to the 
large acreage of flax and barley. 

He places the yield of the two Da- 
kotas at 70.000.000 bushels. While the 
September price of wheat may be low, 
because of the rush to market, he thinks 
the price will go up during the year. 

Dr. A. Nelson Beach, surgeon of the 
steamship China, when last here, told 
the storv of the most remarkable baby 
show and of the most remarkable prize 
winning family that has yet been put on 
record, says the San Francisco Exam- 

The China on the last trip to the 
Orient took on board at Honolulu 410 
.Fapaneae. all homeward bound after hav- 
ing worked out their contracts on the 
Hawaiian islands. Many of the Japan- 
ese had their w-.cs cnildrjii w tn 
them, and there were eighty-three babies 
und( r 4 yeare— fifty -three sul-J and thirty 

The eighty-three almond-eyed young- 
sters furnished amusement for the cabin 
passengers for a time. When there is 
no view save the broad horizon eighty- 
three Japanese babies are great attrac- 
tions. Somebody suggested a baby 
show. The mdthers had never heard of 
a baby show, but the eagle on an Amer- 
ican dollar is a great interpreter, and the 
Japanese commissioner of emigration to 
the Hawaiian islands, who was a passen- 
ger on the steamer, aroused the maternal 
pride of the littlei mothers in the steerage. 
K/ contribution of tli<' cr\lv.ii i-usajngcrs 
a purse was made up and prizes offered 
for tiie three handsomest girls and the 
three finest boys under 4 years. 

The eighty-three little Japs in gorgeous 
kimonos were placed on exhibition one 
afternoon, and then the judges awarded 
the prizes. 

After the prizes were awarded a star- 
tling discoverv was made. The little s,\-U 
who took first and second prizes were 
siFters, and the little boys who took first 
and second prizes were brothers. But 
f-vhen t.the 'passengers found that t-he 
prize-winning little boys and the prize- 
winning little girls wire brothers and 
sisters, all children of the same parents, 
there was astonishment unbounded, and 
the passengers made up a purse of $.5 for 
the mother of the prize-winning family, 
in addition to the prize money bestowed 
on the children. ...,,, 

"If there had been more m the family 
they would have had the rest of the 
prizf^s, I suppose," said Dr. Beach, "but 
the award of four prizes to four children 
of the same family, the oldest of the 
children 4 years of age. was sufficient 
glory for the mother, who was the proud- 
est parent I ever saw. The awards were 
fairly made, and none of the judges 
kn^w that the children were brothers and 

Wheat started off at a slight advance 
to<lay and firmed up a little, but later 
broke badly and closed %c below yes- 
terday. The market was disturbed 
again today when Bradstreet's report of 
the world's visible came to hand. The 
decrease for the week was given as 
1.300.000 bi»s, without taking into ac- 
count Pacific coast stocks, which were 
not reported. A year ago Bradstreet's 
gave the world's visible as having In- 
creased 1.600.000 bu«. Chicago receipts 
were 51 cars: 39 of those were new red 
and 5 new spring. One carload only of 
the red and 2 carloads of the spring 
were No. 2. A year ago Chicago re- 
ceived 670 cars, of which 549 were No. 2. 
Minneapolis and Duluth i-eported 88 cars 
against 146 a year ago. The total re- 
ceipts at the Western primary marVts 
were 470.000 bus. compared with 1.102,000 
bus last year. Included in the Toledo 
receipts were 720,000 bus from Chicago, 
and In the Milwaukee receipts 70,000 
bus from Duluth. The Atlantic export 
clearances were small, amounting to 
only 308.000 bus of wheat and about 
4000 bbls of flour.

A $10 bill, which had mysteriously disap- 
peared, was recovered by Assistant Coin 
Teller Phil Turpln of the sub-treasury In 
a peculiar manner. He has a beautiful 
farm out on Cliflf creek, near the Little 
Miami river. In thax section birds fairly 
abound. One evening Mr. Turpln was get-< 
ting ready to attend a soicee at his next 
nelehbor's In Newtown, about two miles 
distant The weather was unusually warm, 
and he left the window."? of his room open, 
savs the Cincinnati Hnqulrer. 

Sir Turpin had taken his money, among 
which was a $10 bill, and laid it on a cen- 
ter table. Intending to put it in a pocket 
of his other trousers. The room is at the 
corner of the house and has windows on 
both sides. 

He 8tia.tioned himself at one of the win- 
dows and commenced to shave. The birdd 
were singing outside and flying about the 
house and through the open windows, 
while others were busy in trees buiMiiig 
nests It was luxury to shave amid such 
surroundings, and when Mr. Turpin tln- 
ishe<l he looked sleeker than ever. After 
washing he proceeded to don his Sunday- 
go-to-meeting clothes. After he arranged 
his necktie to give the best effect he went' 
to the center table and iH^gan to pick up 
hlsmoneybut was not a little surprised to 
find a $10 bill missing. He thought that 
the wind might have blown tt on the floor, 
and he began looking there for it. 

After a long time spent in vain he gave 
up the search there. He then went out into 
the yard and began hunting among the 
flowers and grass for it, thinklnK that it 
might have been blown through the open 
window, hut he had to go to that soiree 
minus a $10 note. ^ ., „ ,„o 

Day before yesterday the severe wind- 
storm blew a robin's nest out of a tree in 
front of the porch. Mr. Turpln picked the 
nest up and was about to cast it away, 
when he noticed what appeared to be a 
Die^e of paper of peculiar color. He ex- 
amined it. and found it to be currency of 
some denomination, but it was not until 
he had carefully torn the nest apart that 
he discovered it to be a $10 bill. It was 
apparently the one he had lost a couple of 
weeks ago. a bird having flown Into the 
room and snatched up the money. The 
bill was in pretty bad condition, and he 
redeemed it at the t reasury. 


For the moment there is victory all 
along the line for the Liberals of Hun- 
gary says the Review of Reviews. But 
as these Liberals are strongly pro-Jewish 
In their sympathies, the dlscomfltted 
Clericals seeking for support against the 
enemy have naturally bethought them- 
selves of an anti-Semitic alliance. The 
anti-Semitic movement which prevails 
wherever German is spoken— it may be 
found elsewhere, but is strongest among 
German-speaking men-is ^strong in 
Vienna, where Dr. Luger, the leader of 
the anti-Semitic party, was in May elect- 
ed burgomaster. He refused to serve, 
but his election led the government to 
dissolve the municipal council, and ap-

As the result of this, the anti-Semitic 
propaganda-whlch in its essence is di- 
rected not against but against 
the man with the shekels-has received 
a flerce stimulus, and it is expected the 
party will win numerous seats when the 
ballot-boxes are open. The Catholics are 
not indisposed to serve the anti-Sem- 
ites for the sake of cmljarrassing the 
Liberals. The outlook Is threatening, but 
the emperor king, who,, has ridden two 
horses all his life, is not likely to lose 
his footing now.

New York Mercury: A hard looking 
tramp came into the office of the chari-

with a most forlorn story of destitution. 
The minister in charge had previously re- 
ceived unfavorable reports of this very 
man from the Charity Organization so- 
tittv. After listening to his story he 
said- "I have heard all about you from 
the Charity Organization society. They 
don't think very much of you."

Buffalo Courier: Of the faculty or 
genius or instinct for finding four leafed 
clovers the Post Express remarks: ' Does 
it take a simpleton to see good luck In 
wandering over a clover field with the 
sort of girl who alone can find that spe- 
cies?" And then he go.s on to talk rap- 
turously of the girl for whom the four 
leafed clovers seem to spring out of the 
Rround. "She is the meadow goddess, 
-he says, "the sweetest and prettiest of aU 
the witches of wood and field. Y^ou can 
see her can't you. in her muslin gown, 
a special little sunbeam falling on her; 
and yet as cool as a wee white Iceberg 
In a great green sea. And she carries the 
mystic bunch of clovers in her hand, 
like a wand or a sceptre, and all the 
daisies and the buttercups nod as she 
passes, for ism't she the witch of good 
only at sundown, returning with her 
luck? Or perhaps you have seen her 
sheaves— her tiny little sheaves— the 
white muslin tinted pink with the glow 
of the sun, and her two eyes like evening 
stars. She always finds the clovers easi- 
ly, she laughs and jests without a seem- 
ing care and they sprout up around her 
as though Indeed bewitched. It is fun- 
ny how men never can find four learea 
clovers, at least without help." 

This is very beautiful and any man 
might be glad to follow the glorious 
creature as the four leafed clovers rise 
under her light footprints. But that 
last observation is true only in poetry, or 
only for those who prefer the help of a 
Klrl's eyes to their own unaided vision— 
and where is the man who does not? 
still, let us have the truth, even though 
poeitry suffers a little. It is certain 
that Pan and his merry followers suc- 
ceed In this business of finding four 
leafed clovers quite as well as Diana and 
hers. To settle the matter it might be 
necessary to have a four leafed clover 
finding contest between dryads and fauns. 
We are not so certain that the fauns would 
come to the judges with empty hands, or 
even that their odd— or rather oddly even 
—clovers would be less numerous than the 
trophies of the dryads. To be sure we 
never heard of a mortal man or a half 
mortal one. like a fa.un, finding 300 four 
leafed clovers or half that many on one 
afternoon, though the writer In the Post- 
Express solemnly avers that two Roches- 
ter girls had that amazing luck. Their 
talent is marvelous and can be nothing 
but a gift of the gods.

U. B. Agricultural Dei>artment, Wea- 
ther Bureau. Duluth, Minn., Aug. 
14.— The storm area which yesterday 
mornlnjc covered the Dakotas is now 
central near Fort .Arthur. Its passage 
over Minnesota yesterrlay was marke'l 
by heavy thunder storms and general 
showers. In the Dakotas and portions 
of Minnesota the maximum temperatures 
rangeil generally between 90 and 102 de- 
grees, the highest being reported in South 
Dakota. These (.-ondiUons were followed 
by a dwided fall in temperature through- 
out the extreme Northwest last night. A 
minimum temperature of 32 degrees oc- 
curred at Calgary and killing frost in 
Northern MontaJia. 

Duluth temperature at 7 a. m. today, 
68: maximum yesterday, 70: minimum yes- 
terday. 5S: rainfall. 0.48 inch.

Local Forecast Official. 

Chicago, Aug. 14.— Forecast until S a. m. 
tomorrow: Wisconsin: Fair tonight and 
Thursday: cooler fresh northwest winds; 
probably light frosa in northern por-

it will remain stationary for the next 
twenty-four hours. Upper lakes: Lake

by fair: winds shifting to brisk north- 
west and cooler. 

The temperature has fallen 10 to \'y de- 
grees in the Northwest and 34 degrees at 
Havre, Mont. Havre reports killing 
frost and light frost occurred at Willis- 
ton. N. D. Conditions favor the occur- 
rence of light frost in Northwest Wis-

tered rains have occurred from Minnesota

A "Washington dispatch of yesterday 
said: "Gold shipments continue, and 
another million will go Thursday from 
the reserve. The bond syndicate will 
come to the rescue, it is said, when the 
reserve goes below $100,000,000. There is 
no doubt but what the reserve will 
dwindle after Oct. 1. when the contract 
with the syndicate expires, but it corned 
direct from President Cleveland to the 
treasury department that a call for an- 
other issue of bonds will be made when- 
ever the gold reserve goes down to $60,- 

Another bond issue! Another bur- 
den placed up<")n the nation in the shape 
of interest bearing bonds, out of which 
a syndicate of Wall street and I»ndon 
bankers will make a profit of millions! 
How long is this state of things to con- 
tinue? When will the chain cease to 
revolve? When will the whole country 
perceive that the only way to end thi.s 
st^te of things is to adopt genuine bi- 
metallism — to open the mints to the 
free coinage of both gold and silver? 
The Philadelphia Manufacturer states 
the situation very clearly in the follow- 
ing words: 

"Not only has the country begun to 
shiver again because small quantities 
of gokl are exported, but the expres- 
sions by the newspapers of humble con- 
fidence in the ability of the gold syndi- 
cate to keep the treasury on its feet 
are accompanied by st-vere rebuke of 
the unpatriotic action of certain per- 
sons who take gold from the treasury. 
But. if these people want gold they do 
exactly right to get it where It may 
be most easily had. Considerations of 
patriotism are not in any manner in- 
volved in the transaction. Wanit of 
patriotism is manifested only by the 
persons who are able to rejoice that 
the credit of this rich nation is in the 
keeping of two hired Englishmen, and 
wTio use all their efforts to maintain 
a currency system that permits the ex- 
istence of conditions which compel such 
dependence and which fill the land 
with panic whenever an export move- 
ment of gold begins. 

"The strangest thing apparent to the 
vision of reasonable men at this mo- 
ment Is that the British gold system, 
prrjducinig shameful and perilous con- 
sequences like these, should have the 
exultant admiration of multitudes of 
Americans. Hardly less wonderful is 
it that a nation with an abundance of 
another precious metal, which is Just 
as serviceable now as it has been for 
twenty centuries, should stake its com- 
mercial peace and its financial security 
upon gold which has been made arti- 
ficially scarce and then cornered solely 
that the nation might be plucked and 
plundered by foreigners. Nothing is 
more nearly certain than that, with 
bimetallism, we should have not only 
plenty of silver but more gold, and per- 
fect ease in the treasury. When the 
people awaken from the nightmare 
whkch now afflicts them, there will be 
expressions of astonishment that they 
could so long have been blinded and 
befooled by their European enemies." 

The contemptible attack made by the 
News Tribune yesterday morning on 
Secretary Carlisle, while he was virtu- 
ally a guest of the city of Duluth, has 
naturally caused some very harsh com- 
ment upon the 'blundering idiocy thait 
was responsible for its publication. The 

article was as Ill-timed as Its charges 
and insinuations were falae, and the 
people of Duluth will trust that the 
article did not meet the secretary's 

It Is not often that Duluth is visited 
by a member of the cabinet, and It is 
shameful that an>'<thing should be 
printed here on such an occasion which 
so utterly misrepreaents public senti- 
ment. There is no one but has the 
kindliest feeUn^rs for Mr. Carlisle as a 
man and as a leading member of the 
cabinet, no viatter tww radically they 
differ with him iHiHtlcally. All were 
pleased to see hbn making a tour of the 
great lakes and becoming acquainted 
with the mighty volume of commerce 
which is carried In the lake vessels, and 
they will be glad to welcome him again, 
with the hope that upon his next visit 
he will find it convenient to remain here 
a few days and become acquainted with 
the people, who Jire not of the boorish 
disposition which the article in ithe 
morning paper would Indicate. 


will be found in The Herald tomorrow. 
The Herald has made arrangements to 
obtain a verbatim report of the speech, 
which will undoubtedly be read with 
great Interest, and will publish a large 
edition to meet the demand. 


Duluth should be well represented at 
the next deep waterways convention. 
which will be held In Cleveland Sept. 
24-26. The executive committee has re- 
ceived assurances tha/t many prominent 
public men, members of congress, gov- 
ernors of states, business men and 
farmers wiill attend the convention, so 
that it promises to "be a very large and 
representative gathering, befitting the 
great and important subject to be dis- 
cussed. The need and value of such 
conventions have been demonstrated 
in the past. The influence which they 
wield is always felt at Washington in 
securing the appropriations by congress 
for carrying on the work of improving 
the lake waterways. 

The growth of the lake commerce de- 
mands still greater Improvements in the 
waterway between Duluth and Buffalo, 
and in the importanit harbors at both 
ends of the route. At the same time 
the popular demand for a waterway 
from the great lakes to the Atlantic 
ocean is steadily Increasing. The next 
congress will no doubt be asked to 
make an appropriation for securing this 
object, since the people of New York 
state are apparently unable to grasp 
the central idea of the scheme and 
foolishly imagine that the wishes of the 
West will be n»et by deepening the Erie* 
canal to nine feet. What the West 
wants is a waterway to the sea twenty 
feet deep, and if New York state will 
not provide it then this country must 
unite with Canada in providing such a 
waterway through the Canadian canals 
and the St. Lawrence river. 

The growth of the commerce be- 
tween Lake Superior and the lower lake 
ports is shown by the reports of the 
Sauk canal officials. It should be re- 
membered that at least 75 per cent of 
the tonnage passing through the canal 
is commerce to and from Duluth. Each 
monthly report from the canal tends to 
confirm the belief that the freight ton- 
nage of the canal this season will ex- 
ceed 15,000,§«0. Up to and including 
July 31 (practically three months of the 
season) the aggregate of freight passed 
through the canal was 6.376,412 net tons, 
of which 5,393,065 tons was eastbound 
and 983,347 tons westbound. The July 
statement of canal business, published 
in detail by -The Herald ten days ago, 
exceeded in nearly every item all pre- 
vious records for a single month. The 
present canal is altogether inadequate 
to take care of the rush of business, and 
the result has been serious and costly 
delay to vessels in getting locked 
through. The need of the new canal, 
which is fast approaching completion, 
is urgent. These are matters upon 
which the convention can dwell, and 
the facts and figures cannot fail to im- 
press the whole country with the magni- 
tude of the lake commerce and the im- 
portance of this great international 

The feeling between St. Paul and Min- 
neapolis may be bitter, but not more so 
than the feeling between Chicago and 
St. Louis, as witness the following from 
a recent issue of a St. Louis paper: 
The Chicago river is in a peculiarly 
active state now, and the surrounding 
territory is said to be very nearly unin- 
habitable. Windyville is experiencing a 
return of the days when the story was 
told of one of her inhabitants who trav- 
eled in a Pullman car as far as Rock 
Island and fell in a dead faint as soon 
as he got a breath of fresh air in the 
morning. The usual restoratives were 
applied without avail, when an old Pull- 
man porter hurried away and returned 
with an ancient and vociferous fish. 
When this was applied to the Chi- 
cagoan's nostrils he opened his eyes and 
with a long sigh, exclaimed: "Ah! 
home again!" 

The party of distinguished Demo- 
cratic statesmen scheduled for a visit to 
the Northwest and West this fall will 
not take the jaunt mapped out for them; 
last spring. A. T. Ankeny, Minnesota's 
representative to the National Associa- 
tion of Democratic clubs, is in receipt 
of a notice to that effect from Secretary 
Lawrence Gardner, of Washington. 
This is the party of spellbinders that 
designed to convert the West to the 
gold standard and was to fire the open- 
ing gun at Duluth. They probably 
concluded that their task was impos- 

Col. Bill Morrison says "Mr. Hill 
wants the presidency himself." No 
doubt he does, but Mr. Hill is willing to 
let somebody else be the Democratic 
candidate next year — Col. Morrison, for 
instance — while he will wait until the 
omens are' more propitious for Demo- 
cratic aucoess. 

Judge Vanderburgh. Judge Rea and 
other prominent men In Minneapolis arc 
taking steps to form a club to advocate 
bimetallism. Thus the great movement 
continues to spread. Senator Wash-

Europe, has declared himself in favor of 

The only complete report of Mr. 
Towne's speech at the Temple tonight 

After the article In yesterday's edi- 
tion was written. In regard to the effect 
upon the lake levels of the Chicago 
drainage canal, a dispatch was received 
from Chicago stating that the commls- 
siwn appointed by the secretary of war 
to investigate the matter, has arrived 
there and will begin work at once. 

And now an Eastern paper quotes the 
Hon. Ell Perkins as authority for the 
statement that "the silver craze is 
dying out." Ell Perkins has a record as 
a liar. 

Go to the Temple tonight and hear the 
cause of bimetallism expounded by Mr. 
Towne. You will enjoy It and be In- 

St. Paul and Minneapolis are still 
keeping up the census war. Where is 
the Peace Arbitration society? 

Kansas City World: It has been un- 
derstood that In 'Minneapolis leading

ing In the kitchen; also, that the mascu- 
line members of the household are ac- 
customed it» seek the seclusion that the 
barn affordsf when they take their post- 
piundlal smoke. The use of the family 
barn as a place for social recreation, 
it seems, is also quite generally re- 
tained. The Minneapolis Times of 
Thursday gave an elaborate notice of a 
party which was held in a well-ap- 
pointed and spacious barn at the rear of 
the residence of Thomas Dowry. 

St. Cloud Times: Duluth will not 
equal Minneapolis and St. Paul In pop- 
ulation, but heo- four-oared boat crew 
beat them both rowing in the Minne- 
tonka regatta on Friday, and the Zenith 
City is correspondingly happy. 

Washington Post: Miss Coleman, the 
Ohio girl who Is said to have gone to 
church vveaflng a pair of red bloomers, 
has denied the story. They were blue 
blooaners. Well, a couple of stacks of

St. Paul Globe: Mr. Watterson is per- 
haps a trifle too enthusiastic in his 
bitterness when he says Mr. Cleveland

States. Perhaps Mr. Watterson has

Detroit, Minn., Record: We hope the 
Northwest Magazine is correct in sum- 
ming up the much-talked-of consolida- 
tion of the Northern Pacific and Great 
Northern systems under one manage- 
ment, as it does in the article copied 
below. The success of the proposed deal 
would effectually bar all railroad com- 
petition in tfie Northwest for years to 
come, and it is sincerely to be hoped 
that the Minnesota statutes will prove 
an eflfectual bar to the consummation of 
the plan. 

St. Cloud Journal-Press: There seems 
to be a great deal of doubt about J. J. 
Hill getting control of the Northern Pa- 
cific after all. It will be much better 
for the whole Northwest to have two in- 
dependent lines, and in the long run it 
will be much better for the i^ilroad in- 
terests of the country to keep them 
separate. Goverament ownership or 
control is an idea that is growing In this 
country, and the control of two big 
roads like the Great Northern and 
Northern Pacific by one man would 
help this sentiment along amazingly. 
The American people have a big stock 
of patience and are longsuffering, but 
when they are crowded just a little too 
much, the corporations will be wiped off 
Uncle( Sam's footstool.

The man on the entrance gate at the 
Pavilion had an experience that con- 
siderably upset him yesterday after- 
noon during the matinee rush. The 
gateway was tilled with the matinee 
habitue clothe<l In all kinds of bonnets 
ami eager to get up Into the auditorium 
where the music was just beginning. 
Two well dressed ladles came up and 
halted In the line, impeding: all progress. 

"Sir," said tlje younger of the two 
after a long preamble. "My friend and 
I have been up here so often I should 
think you might let us through this 
once for nothing." 

"Go on," snapped the flustered gate- 
man. "Today is bargain day." 

A certain young married couple of 
philanthropic impulses went last week 
to call on a family reported to be in 
destitute circumstances and In need of 
aid. On arriving the young matron 
asked the lady of the house if she had 
received any assistance. 

"Oh, yes," she remarked in reply, "all 
we need now is some butter and canned 
cherries. Otherwise we are all right." 

There Is a festive youth living in the 
vicinity of East Second street and 
Eleventh avenue who is possessed of 
sporting proclivities to a remarkable 
degree. It Is because of these thiat grini 
warfare rears its head in the neigh- 
borhood and erstwhile friends and 
neighbors pas.H one another without 
speaking. The feud originated through 
a pet cat with straw colored fur and 
red eyes. The aforesaid youth had 
often seen this neighbor's pet and his 
heart yearned for Its nine lives. He 
set a snare under his father's porch 
and caught in this many cats but the 
one he wanted most was not among 

Now the cat had among its board of 
directors a little girl who used to dress 
it up and comb its whiskers. She 
missed her pet one day last week and 
after a long search found Grimalkin 
caught fast in the snare and about on 
the verge of dissolution. The little 
girl's screams brought her mother who 
released the cat. It was twenty-four 
hours before puss came to. His owner 
vowed vengance and the next day the 
hunter of cats was tolled into his neigh- 
bor's yard and soundly thrashed. 

The humane officer has been drawn 
into the conflict and there are possi- 
bilities of the municipal judge taking 
a hand.

She drifted into the shoe store a vis- 
ion of white and gold and the impres- 
sionable clerk hastened to seat himself 
at her feet. She was dressed in the 
latest mode and wore a charming lit- 
tle pair of gold bowed glasses which 
gave her a learned air. 

The Rounder, who happened to be in 
the store, felt his heart palpitating and 
peeped cautiously forward as she lifted 
her dainty skirts displaying a vision 
of snowy lingerie and well turned 
ankle. She was about to speak and thij 
observer held his breath to listen to 
the ducet tones which must l>elong 
to such a being. 

"Say," she said in a voice like a 
creaking sign, "just do up that pair of 
clogs and send them down to the Ly- 
ceum, care of the Wilburs. Seel"

The battle ship Chen Yuen, captured at 
Wel-Hai-Wei by Japanese, has been 
brought to the naval station at Yokosi, 
near Yokohama, and will be inspected 
by the emperor. 

Many additional disasters caused by 
the storm of July 25 are reported from 
the south and west of Japan. One thou- 
sand fishermen of the single province of 
Satsuma are known to have been 
drowned. Three steamships were 
driven ashore and few of their crews 
and passengers escaped alive. Railway 
accidents have been numerous in con- 
sequence of heavy floods, and several 
villages on the sea coast have been lit- 
erally destroyed. The list of deaths, as 
stated by authorities, will exceed 3000. 


The woman who made a claim at 
Fargo, N. D., to be the wife of Jacob 
Thorn, the murdered man, has also 
made a claim for the $100 check found 
on his body, and when it was refused 
she became very angry. It is now 
claimed that she is not Thom's widow 
but merely went to Fargo to testify 
and make a play for the money. If 
the check is good it will be used to 
pay burial expenses. 

A Pierre, S. D., dispatch says the 
state board of pardons has refused to 
recommend the pardon of William 
Walker, of Meade county, sent up for 
ten years in May 1894. for manslaughter. 

It is expected that the supreme court 
of South Dakota will hand down an 
opinion that the governor had no au- 
thority to remove President Shannon 
of the board of regents. 

A private dispatch received at Fargo 
from I.Angdon, N. D., says that A. H. 
Garfield, the Aberdeen eloper, was seen 
there in company with 15-year-old Bes- 
sie Moore. At Langdon he hired a rig 
to drive over to Manitoba, a distance 
of twenty miles. 


Fort Francis News: Up to the time 
of going to press we have received no

that unless Mr. Butler adds $10 or $15

will never be arrested and brought to 

St. Cloud Journal-Press: A. J. White-

Albany, N. Y., Aug. 14.— By the ex- 
plosion of a large boiler in the paper 
mill and postal c^rd manufactory of 
Woolworth & Co. at Castleton, 10 miles 
from here today, one man, James Law- 
ton, the watchman was killed and an- 
other, the engineer, was so badly in- 
jured that it is believed he will die. 

New York, Aug. 14.— Two new strikes 
were begun on the EJast Side today, in 
accordance with resolutions pas.sed last 
night by the Children's Jacketmakers' 
local assembly 155, K. of L., and the 
Pantsmakers' local assembly, demand- 
ing contracts for one year instead of 
six months. Altogether there are some- 
thing like 7000 or 8000 persons thrown 
out of work by the strike, but the lead- 
ers assert that It will last but a few 

Morgantown, W. Va.. Aug. 14. — John 
Black & Sons were threshing yester- 
day when the boiler of the machine ex- 
ploded killing three men and injuring 
four others. John Spots, Curtin Em- 
mons and John Blair are the killed. 
Curtin Emmons was struck by a piece 
of the boiler and literally torn to pieces, 
his legs and feet were found near the 
barn. All of Blair's clothing was torn 
from him except his shoes. 

Recent Railway Accident Was 
Greatly Exaggerated. 

Victoria, B. C, Aug. 14. — ^The steamer 
Empress of Japan has arrived with ad- 
vices from Yokohama up to Aug. 2. 
The number of deaths reported in the 
railway accident of July 25 was greatly 
exaggerated. Ouly sixteen soldiers 
were killed and eighteen were more or 
less seriously injured. The statement 
that the train was blown bodily off the 
track into the sea is also discredited. 
It is ibelieved that some of the rails were 
displaced by the waves, which were 
driven by the tempest to a great height, 
and that the cars consequently ran over 
the edge of an embankment and were 
plunged into the deep water. The 
effects of the storm were disastrous in 
all southwestern provinces of Japan. 
Thousands of houses were destroyed 
and hundreds of fishing boats and other 
small craftt boats were sunk and at 
least 100 lives are known to have been 

Since the purchase of the ironclad 
Stonewall, forty years ago, Japanese 
have not looked to the United States for 
additions to their navy, but it is now 
proposed to invite estimates from 
American as well as European ship- 
builders for the new vessels required. 
Attention of the navy department has 
been directed to the remarkable im- 
provements in the American men-of- 
war, and Commander Badger, the naval 
attache to the United States legation, 
is prepared to show that ships above 
3000 tons can be produced at least as 
cheaply in the United States as dn the 
other countries, completely armed and 

The builders guarantee the highest re- 
sults of modern manufacture and will 
supply designs to execute any plans 
however intricaite they may be. The 
purchase of ships is approved by all 
classes of Japanese as one means of 
testifying the gratitude for the dis- 
played linterest by the offlcial represen- 
tatives of the United States during the 
recent war, and at no previous time has 
intercourse (between Japanese and 
Americans been so friendly as now. 
Officers of the United States vessels 
stationed alt Yokohama are constantly 
receiving courtesies from military and 
naval authorities of the empire, chiefly 
in commemoration of the hearty wel- 
come given by the Petrel to the Japan- 
ese soldiers at Ying Kow last winter. 

At a banquet offered by Marshal 
Nodseu to Admiral Carpenter and his 
siibordlnates, the marshal said that the 
incident would never be forgotten but 
would lastingly remind the Japanese of 
their indebtedness to their friends who 
stood by them while others held aloof. 
Sir Ernest Sato, the British minister, 
arrived in Japan July 8. 

The Japanese generals in Formosa 
still defer a movement against the Lius 
insurgen(t bands, and raids of the 
Chinese guerillas, which are giving 
great trouble. The French envoy at 
Pekin has agreed that the commission 
for Investigating the missionary out- 
rages at Cheng Tu shall consist of three 
persons, the Catholic bishop, Dunante, 
the Chinese treasurer and the Chinese 
chief of Shee Chuan province. 

All ships arriving at Japanese ports 
from Cores or Formosa, where cholera 
prevails, are now subjected to an ex- 
amination by the quarantine authorities 
and, in case of need, are disinfeclted. 

St. Petersburg, Aug. 14.— The Novosti 
recommends that Russia, France and 
Germany unite with the United States 
and Great Britain with the view of 
obtaining satisfaction for the outrages 
committed by Chinese upon the differ- 
ent missions and in order to obtain 
substantial guarantees against a re- 
petition of these occurrences. 

Portland, Ore., Aug. 14. — Napoleon

party of Oregon take some action re-

are in favor of free coinage. 

Ellinsburg, Wash., Aug. 14. — Samuel

For washing Dishes, 

there's nothing like Pearline. 
Why don't you begin the 
use of it in that way, if 
you're one of the timid 
sisters who still think that 
Pearline " eats the 
clothes?" Then you can 
soak things in it for a 
year or two, and test it in 
every way, until you become convinced that Pearline can't 
do any harm. But it won't eat your dishes, that's sure. It 
won't clog up the sink pipes, either, as soap does. And 
that cloudy effect that you've probably noticed on cut glass 
and china when it's washed with soap— that won't be there if 
you wash it with Pearline. 

O A«^ ^ Peddlers and some unscrupulous grocers will tell you " this is as good as** 
tDeilQ or •' the same as Pearline." IT'S FALSE— Pearline is never peddled,

The twenty-sixth trlonnial conclave of 
the Knights Templar of the United 
Slates which Ir to be held at Boston 
beginning Aug. 27 is at present the 
talk of all the Knights Templar and 
Masonic fraternity generally in Duluth 
Just as it Is everywhere else. This will 
be one of the greatest gatherings ever 
held in the land and Boston has been 
preparing fi>r some time for the enter- 
tainment of the guests. Her people are 
most liberal In their prepajratlons, ti>o, 
and will stand ready to entertain oO.- 
000 people. New York city alone will 
send 3000 Sir Knights and other large 
Easitern cities will be well represented. 
The West will hardly have as many 
as the East but will have no insignifi- 
cant representation. 

From the present outlook It Is safe 
to say that from fifteen to twenty Sir 
Knights will go from Duluth. A large 
number art- still In doubt and may 
when their decision is reach?d Increase 
the number. A number of Sir Knights 
among them J. D. Howard, A. S. Chase, 
R. A. Gray. T. J. Davis, E. P. Towne 
and others will be In the East at that 
time and will Join the Duluth delegation 
at Boston. Duluth Commindery No. 
18 and Palladln Commander>- No. 21, of 
St. Paul, have the distinguished honor 
of being the official escort >f the Grand 
Commandery of Minnesota. The com- 
mittee on transportation consists of H. 
C. Hope, chairman: C. E. Stone and F. 
I. Whitney, all of St. Paul. 

The train carrying the Minnesota Sir 

Knights will leave the Union depot In 

St. Paul over the Northwestern line at 

" p. m. on Friday Aug. 

and entertainments are b-ing received 
in Duluth. as they prolnibly are else- 
where, from different cities aloncg the 
route. The Chicago commanderies will 
entertain on an extended ^^'ale. A num- 
ber of the New England towns, too. 
will run excursions from Boston and 
altogether there will be any amount of 
pleasure, slght-aeeing and entertain- 


Al G. Field's minstrel company, 
"Darkest America." will appear at the 
Lyceum this evening. The Green Bay 
Advocate said of the company: 

'•When Al G. Field, the famous mins- 
trel man. advertised a show under the 
name of "Darkest America." no one 
had an idea it was anything as it is. 
Last night "Darkest America" appeared 
at the Klaus Opera house, and to say 
the house was crowded does not repre- 
sent it in the true light; everj- seat was 
taken and many were standing. The 
curtain "went up" on the first part at 
exactly 15 minutes after 8. and there 
was presented a scene that would do 
credit to any company of white faced 
minstrels. Al Field. Jack Haverly. W. 
S. Cleveland. Thatcher. Primrose & 
West or any other of the veterans In the 
minstrel business ever put on. Not a 
moment elapsed during the evening's 
f ntertainment. from 8:15 to 11 o'clock, 
that the large audience was not either 
shouting with applause or listening. 
wi:h scarcely a breath drawn, to the 
sweet singing. Each and every song 
witty saying and minstrel remark was 
new and appn>priate." 

McKanlass and his clever company of 
musicians will appear at the Temple 
t'imorrow evenirfg for the b-jneflt of the 
Harris' military band, of this cUy. The 
company is composed of six people, all 
colored, and will present a program 
worthy of attention. McKanlass Is 
acknowledged by all who hear him to 
be the greatest negro violinist of this 
age, and he is ably -supp<:>rteij by Miss 
Jennie Robinson, who was the leading 
s.M>rano of Stewarts Wilberforce Con- 
cert company for seven years, and ap- 
peared in Duluth in that capacity some 
years ago.

The Heywood Celebrities Will 
Open Tomorrow. 

The performance at the Pavilion con- 
tinues to become more and more pop- 
ular. The new arrangement of lump- 
ing the band's selections proves to be 
accepitable to the public, and the num- 
l)eT3 given are excellent as usual. 
Arhno. the hand equilibrist, continues 
to amaze and amuse with his wonder- 
ful feats, and Jurvo Salmo, the Golden 
Mephisto, performs his contortions In 
a manner that brings the applause of 
the audiervce in unstinted quantities. 
John T. Powers, the comedian with the 
"comedy walk. ' Is as funny as they 
make them. Altogether the program 
'.s an excellent one. and tomorrow it 
will be further increased by the addition 
of Heywood's celebrities. 

Of these artists those who have seen 
them seem to be unsparing in commen- 
da/tlon. The company consists of Signor 
Eduardo Vlsini. baritone; Miss Berenice 
Belknap, pianist; Caclla Ivemess, .so- 
prano; J. T. Evans, tenor, and Nell 
Litchfield, the man of many faces. The 
press comments on the show as a whole 
are many and complimentary-. The 
Washington Journal allows that It Is 

:»lmply inynjense, and the Columbia. 
Tenn.. Herald says that it was the best 
of the kind ever -seen there.

At Boston the Commandery will have 
quarters on Concord square. Just off 
Columbus avenue. The grand parade 
passes by this point and It Is especial- 
ly well located. , ^ , .u 
There will be a number of Dulutn 
ladles In the party as well as a large 
numb-r from other cities In the state. 
Sir Knight J. W. Miller will look after 
the comfort of the Duluth ladles and 
a better selection could not have been 
made for Capt. Miller knows every 
inch of Boston and can pilot them to 
all the points of Interest. In addition 
the captain Is a very gallant gentle- 
man and will take great pleasure in 
looking after the ladles. 

At this time It is impossible to give 
a detailed account of the program of 
entertainment prepared by the Boston 
people, but it Is safe to say that the 
gallant Sir Knights will carry away 
with them grateful memories of whole- 
souled Yankee hospitality. 

The grand conclave, which Is made 
up of the grand c:>mmanders and grand 
recorders of the grand commanderies

Over 6000 People in State of Michigan Cured 
in 1 894 by This New Preparation. 

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, the new- 
discovery for stomach troubles, is 
claimed to have cured over 6000 people 
In the state of Michigan alone In 1894. 
These tablets have become so popular 
with physicians and people who have 
any form of indigestion that they have 
the endorsement of such physicians as 
Dr. Harlandson and Dr. Jennlson as 
being the safest, most r-liable remedy 
for sour stomach, chronic dyspepsia, 
gas, bloating, palpitation, headache, 
constipation and in all cases where the 
appetite is poor or the fo-.d imperfectly 

It is safe to say that Stuart's Dyspep- 
sia Tablets will cure any kind of stom- 
ach trouble except cancer of the stom- 
ach. They are not a secret pvatent medi- 
cine, but composed of vegetable and 
fruit essences, pure pepsin. Golden Seal, 
ginger and the digestive acids. They 
are pleasant to take, can be carried in 
the pocket, and they cur" because they 
digest the food promptly before It has 
time to ferment and poison the blood. 

Druggists everywhere sell Stuart's 
Dyspepsia Tablets, full-sized packages, 
at 50 cents. A book on stomach diseases 
and thousands of testimonials .sent free 
by addressing the Stuart company,

He Receives Five Years 
Hard Labor. 


St. Paul. Aug. 14.— A. special to the 
Dispatch from Pierre. S. D., says: The 
court room was crowded today to hear 
judgment proriounced on W. W. Taylor, 
defaulting ex-state treasurer. When 
aske<l if he had anything to say why 
sentence should not be pronounced upon 
him, Taylor in a low voice replied "I 
have not. " 

Judge Gaffv then reviewed the case 
and the differeret sitatutes bearing upon 
the crime. He considered! the mueh-dis- 
cussed section 166.S void, and did not be- 
lieve a twf»-year sentence was Intended 
to cover such a c>ase as this. He con- 
sidered that Taylors wors.t crime was 
in attempting to force a compromise 
after gathering together all state funds 
he uould lay his hands on.

Chicago, Aug. 14.— With the breaking 
of the time-honored bottle and a flow of 
sparkling champagne the steamer 
Zenith City gracefully glided down the 
ways at the yards of the Chicago Ship 
Building company this aftern<x»n and 
took her place In lake commerce as the 
largest steamer on the chain of lakes. 
Ownetl by a syndicate of Duluth cap- 
italists, the great boat's launching wa.': 
graced by the presence of a large party 
of ladies and gentlemen from the North- 
ern city, in whose honor it was named. 
Careful preparation had been made for 
the event, and promptly at 3:30 the 
steel monster was released from its 
place In the yards. 

Miss Fleming, daughter of John C. 
Fleming, Western agent of the Carnegie 
Steel company, broke the bottle of 
champagne over the bows and, with the 
usual accompaniment of cheers and 
handclapplngs, baptised the steamer 
Zenith City. A large fleet of small boats 
pleasure yachts were present to 
I greet the new craft, and the dignity of 
the United States government was re- 
presented by the revnue cutter Calumet. 
The Duluth delegation was headed by 
A. B. Wolvin, who will be manager of 
the steamer. 

Every part of the Zenith City is of 
steel, except the masts and the cabin 
finishings. It is not intended for any- 
thing but a freight carrier and will go 
at once into the Iron ore traffic, with an 
occasional change to grain, her home 
port being Duluth, Minn. The steam- 
ship is 405 feet over all and 380 feet im 
keel. Her molded breadth is 48 feet and 
depth of hold 28. There Is but one deck, 
hut it has! hold beams for another should 
it be required. Eleven hatchways will 
receive the freight. Her tonnage Is 3800 
gross and 3370 net tons, which makes 
her more of a carrier than the Victory, 
whose gross tonnage Is 3704. 

The machinery to propel this huge of steel is a vertical inverted, 
triple-expansion engine. The diameter 
of the cylinder Is 22-38-63 Inches, giving 
a common stroke of forty inches havmg 
1600 horse power and developing a mean 
speed of 12 knots an hour. This driving 
power Is all placed as far aft as pos- 
sible. The boilers are the Babcock and 
Wilcox marine and are the only ones of 
that pattern on the lakes. They cannot 
burst except in sections and then only 
a pipe or two. Two hundred steam 
working pressure is the Iwiler capacity. 
The plktes on the hull came from Car- 
negie, a few being furnished by the Illi- 
nois Steel company. It required 2000 
tons of them. There are bunkers for 
2.50 tons of fuel, and the Zenith City will 
burn twenty-five tons a day. The keel 
was laid Feb. 25 of this year. The total 
cost Is $225,000. 

Capt. R. J. Lyons will command and 
have a crew of two mates, two watch- 
men, two wheelmen, two engineers, four 
firemen, two oilers, a cook and six deck- 
hands. When inspected and declare<l 
satisfactory by the Zenith Transit com- 
pany, she will leave under her own 
steam power for the Northern lake.

N.F. Hugo Will Gather the State 
Fair Exhibit. 

The Agricultural society, as has been 
publi.=<hed before, has undertaken the 
work of preparing the exhibit for St. 
Louis county which will be shown at 
the state fair n.xt month. President 
Greatsinger, of the Duluth & Iron Range 
road, has undertaken the work of pre- 
paring the ore showing. The exhibit 
In all other lines is in charge of N. F. 
Hugo who will gather a^d prepare it 
for the fair. 

The society Is also actively engaged 
in preparing for the county fair. A 
new feature to be Inaugurated is the 
sale of space by bids. Last year there 
was great dlssatisf«x?tion due to the 
fact that the exhibitors held off for so 
long before securing space and then had 
trouble In getting It. The books are 
now open for bids for space and all 
such trouble will undoubtedly be avoid- 
ed by this method.

The Flower Show. 

Preparations for the flower show will 
be actively begun tomorrow. John 
Richter. the Rorist at Panton & Wat- 
s>: ns. will have charge of the entire ar- 
rangement of the flowers and will make 
an especial effort to exhibit them in an 
artistic and attractive manner. No 
pains will be spared to make a fine dis- 
play. All persons who will exhibit 
flowers or plants may send them in 
tomorrow. All should be in by Friday 

This flower shfiw is not merely an 
:'.frair gotten up to aid the Associated 
Charities, although that is part of its 
purpose, but it to be a permanent in- 
stitution, an annual event. Each year 
this flower show is to be given and to 
the lovers of the beautiful in nature 
will be eagerly anticipated. 

A large number of applicants will 
ccme forward for the position of clerk 
tr» Inspectors Chalk and Monaghan 
which Charles T. Ablx>tt resigned a feiw^ 
flays ago. Th*> inspectors do not have 
the power to appoint. The applications 
must be sent in to -the treasury de- 
partment at Washington and the ap- 
pointment is made by the secretary. 
For this reason it is somewhat hard to 
learn just who has apiplied. A num- 
I»?r of young lady stenographers have 
made inquiry concerning the place and 
think of applying.

The Inside history of the Duluth Base- 
ball association was brought out today 
in the municipal court during the trial 
of W. H. Campbell, the former mana- 
ger of the association, for passing a 
worthless check on the Qarrlngton 
Tailoring company. E. Krelwltz. secre- 
tary and treasurer of the association, 
was placed on the stand to show that 
Campbell had money due him from the 
association and had expected to have 
received it In time to meet the check. 
Under City Attorney Pag* Morris' cross- 
examination a very interesting story 
was brouiglit to light. 

Early in the spring E. Krelwltz and 
W, H. Campbell formed themselves into 
the Duluth Baseball association, with 
a capital consisting mainly of faith. 
Krelwltz was elected secretary and 
treasurer and Campbell manager of 
the association of two. Then they 
signed an ironclad agreement for the 
season, in which the proflts were to be 
divided between the promoters of the 
concern. The nine stalwart players who 
attended to the ball playing and per- 
spiring were toi be rewarded with honor 
and expenses. 

Then the grounds were procured and 
fenced and some grading done. Enough 
expenses were incurred in accomplish- 
ing this to eat up the proflts for. a con- 
siderable time. But the enterprising 
managers put their trust in the bleach- 
ers and futurity and were content to 
wait. They, too, were getting ex- 

In the meanwhile the members of the 
nine were likie the man who fell from 
the balloon; they were not In It as far 
as any reward for their services was 
concerned, and so a general roar of in- 
dignation went up from the homy- 
handed. Many of last year's team, 
when approached, refused to play in 
the team this season because of the 
managerial policy. The nine, however, 
was formed and played good ball, de- 
spite the growing dissatisfaction. 

Finally, shortly after July 1, Sam 
Atkinson took Campbell's place as half 
the Duluth Baseball association. The 
retiring officer was to> be paid according 
to agreement, J41.75 in cash and back 
board at the St. James' hotel. Accord- 
ing to Manager Krelwltz the bo^d bill 
has been settled, but the hard round 
money consideration is still in abeyance. 
At any rate the story is an interesting 
one and sheds considerable light on 
matters that were a mystery to well- 
wishers ofl the* Duluth ball club. 

Campbell appeared in the municipal 
court this morning on the complaint of 
Charles Peck, bookkeeper for the Car- 
rlngton Tailoring company, who ac- 
cepted the check July 13 in payment for 
a $20 suit of clothes. Campbell's bal- 
ance at the National Bank of Com- 
merce, on -which the check was drawn, 
was 25 cents. The bank bookkeeper 
testified regarding the condition of the 
account. The hearing of witnesses oc- 
cupied Judge Boyle all thei morning and 
a recess was taken until this afternoon 
when the trial was resumed. 



William O'Neil Seems to be 
Mentally Unbalanced. 

William O'Neil, the Superior man 
who is charged with holding up Daniel 
J. M<ri)onnell at LePiter Park last March, 
has either gone mad in the county jail 
or he is making a bold play for release 
on the ground of insanity, according to 
the story told by the county officials. 

O'Neil was captured a short time ago, 
and after trial was bound over to await 
the action of the srand jury on a charge 
of robbery. He has been in the county 
jail since, and a few days ago he began 
to exhibit signs of mental obll<iuity. He 
spends most of his time parading his 
cell with his coat buttoned tightly about 
his chin, no matter what the tempera- 
ture, and indulging in other freakish 

One of. his amu.sements Is to untie the 
rope from his hammock and place it 
around his neck in order to hang him- 
self. The county physician was sum- 
moned this morning to see whether he 
is shamming or whether his brains have 
turned into wheels.

Dredging of St. Louis River 
Was Finished Today. 

Williams, Daugherty & Upiiam to- 
day finished up their job of dredging 
the St. Louis river from Grassy Point 
to New Duluth. The amount of their 
contract was ^25,000. There is nowi a 
continuous channel seventeen feet deep, 
' ranging from seventy to 100 feet in width 
the entire distance. It will take this 
lirm about one month more to com- 
plete the St. Louis bay contract. This 
calls for an expenditure of about $35,- 
000. The Twenty-first avenue channel 
Is being dredged and the north shore 
channel widened. 

C S. Barker's work will be finished 
this week. He is dredging the channel

who was arrested here today, has con- 
fessed that he is a member of a gang 
of thieves who have plundered North- 
western and St. Paul freight cars in 
the northern part of the state for 
months past. Cars at Oshkosh, Neenah, 
Fond du Lac and other towns had been^ 
broken into and the contents, particu- 
larly shoes, stolen. The Smith-Wallace

Jung shoe manufactory have teen the 
principal sufferers. The goods were 
peddled out to farmers. The prisoner 
will be taken to Oshkosh for trial.

to grant their request. Father Busch, 
the pastor, is already on the grounds 
and making all suitable arrangements 
for the building of a new and hand- 
some edifice of brick.

Moline, III., Aug. !'>.- What seems to 
be a double murder ium thrown tht^ 
village of Cordova, tw.nty miles up 
the river, into a state <<f great excite- 
ment. l.<ist Sunday ;ittemo<^n, while 
itoating in the river n«ir Cordova Will-

wiiis ai)parently 2S years of age and 
was thought to l>e a c >(>k or chamber- 
maid on one of the riv.-r boats. Noth-

b,r identity, barrin*? a sp(K»n and a 
photograph of a colori.<l man. recog- 
nized as Charles Jon-s. cook of the 
st< amer Sydney. The 'Steamer's officers

who had previously calUd in comimny 
with a colcired man. asking for food. 
She also identlfieti th- .spoon, as one

Shortly after a mouml of .sand was

Sit. Paul, Aug. l?>. — ^The figures sent

this afternoon, the new census of Du-

Some Speeches at the Silver 
Conference Today. 

Washington, Aug. 15. — ^The silver men 
continued the conference at 10 n'cl<K-k 
today. The committee on resolutions 
and program being unable to report 

when the meeting was first called to 
order, it was suggested that the con- 
ference should listen to speeches by 
those pres<'nt. C. F. Co'kran, editor 
of the St. Jos.i)h. Mo., Gazette .«aid it 
seemt^d anomalous that a meeiting such 
as the present should l>e called, for he 
knew t>f no d<Ktrine of the party which 
v.ivs not in consonance with the pur- 
poses of this conference. He dt^-lared 
against the peri>etuation of the na- 
tional banks, whose tyranny, he said, 
was the greatest that any p^^iple would 
bear. The national banks were dinti-tly 
opposed to Democracy. He was for a 
declaration for silver, without regard to 
the prtjspect of success or failure at the 

Representative Neill, of 
wanted to see the free coinage of silver 
provided for at the next ses.sion, "re- 
gardless of the position of tlui distin- 
guished citizen at the other end of the 
avenue." Which sentiment was loudly 

Kx-Representative Fithian. of Illi- 
nois, denied that the free silver senti- 
ment was dying out in that state. He 
said that all the I>emocratic farmers 
and 90 per cent of the business men 
in the state were silver men. He de- 
clared that he had been defeated in the 
last election, not because of his p*>sitioii 1 
on silver, but because he had to beari 
the odium of an administration which | 
was not Democratic. (Applause). * 

Kepreseutative Livingrston, of Geor- 
gia, said it was time for another de- 
claration <>( independence. "It is the 
purpose of the country from which I 
come," he said, 'to prosecute the fight 
with their coats off and their sle<-ves 
rolled up and not to desist until the 
end. It was England's purpose," he 
asserted, "to ccmtrol the United States 
and finding herself unable to do so by 
force of arms, she had undertaken to 
do it by controlling our finances."

As the curtain rose President Giles 
(Jilbert stepped before the footlights 
and called the great gathering to order. 
After announcing that the next meeting 
of the Gold and Silver club of Duluth 
would be held at the city hall next Wed- 
nesday night, he said: 

"The Hon. Charles A. Towne, who will 
be the speaker of the evening, is too well 
known to need introduction to a Du- 
luth audience. He will address you on 
the subject in which "Vve are all so much 
interested and which has such a vital 
Import on the welfare of the coun- 
try. ' 

Mr. Towne's appearance was greeted 
with an ovation, and It was fully five 
minutes before the applause had sub- 
sided. He came prepared with a multi- 
plicity of charts illusJtratlng the produc-

resulting fire entirely consumed the 
plant of the Peerless refinery, Findlay. 
with $60,000 loss, half Insured. A ben- 
zine tank first exploded, cause unkno%vn, 
and in an instant the building was 
wrapped In seething flames. Two still 
men. William Adams and William 
Bemis. were probably fatally burned. 
Ten oil stills caught next and one after 
the other exploded, st-nding flaming oil 
over the surrounding buildings. 

Next two tanks of crude oil. contain- 
ing 21,000 gallons, caught fire, sending 
red columns of flam- 200 feet into the 
ail. A mammoth tank of 30,000 barrels 
w:is fired into with a caijnon, letting the 
oil run out where it caught fire. The 
oil is still burning, and the smoke ob- 
scures the heavens for miles.

An Able Discussion of the

Mr. Chairman, Members of the Duluth 
frold and .Silver Club and Ladies and 
Gentlemen: The invitation to address 
such an audience In this community and 
under the auspices of such an organizii- 
tion, is an honor gratefully received and 
a privilege gladly embrar.i d. The mem-

every sect and occupation in this vicin-

unselfish public purpo.»e: the study and 
dissemination of right views on a matter 
of infinite concern to ih<-lr fellow coun-

He Will Be Taken to Chicago 
for Trial. 

Philadelphia, Aug. l.'.-lt has practically

others, will go to Chicago for trial foe 
the murder of the Williams girls. This, 
it was said, was the outcome of a con- 
ference held here today between \V . A.

Attorney Graham. ^ 

After the confereme, I.awyer Capps

Duluth's Team Will Tackle

lace next. They are probably the strong-

of the Twin Cities, which is saying a 
;?ood deal for their ability as ball play- 
ers. One of their pitchers was recently 
i^iven a trial in the Minneapolis league 
team, and he won the game, too. The 
Northern J'acifics have already defeated 
the Picketts, the Spauldings, the Nation- 
.Is, the Gotzians and other strong Twin 
City teams, besides numerous outside 

The coming games here will be played 
on a percentage basis which will be sure 
to work up a hot contest. The Duluth 
boys are in excellent shape and will tr>' 
to win the series of Saturday and Sun- 
day. The Northern Pacifies are out with 
a sweeping challenge and claim to be 
iunateur champions of the state.

that he was at work on defective elec-

slain, and that the disheveled api>ear- 
ance which he presented when seen 
shortly afterwanis by Organist King 
was the result of being overcome by 
gas which had escai>etl from the pipes 
and ccdlected in the loft. 

King, it will be remembered, on that 
afternoon, went into the Sunday school 
rtiom of the church to practice some 
jielections he was expected to render 
when next the congregation should as- 
semble for worship. He thi>ught he was 
alone in the building. After remain- 
ing at the piano several minutes he waS 
startled by the sound of some one operr 
ing the door leading from the hallway 
to the church auditorium. Turning he 
beheld Durrant pale and apparently ex- 
hausted, his hair disheveled and his 
clothing disarranged. L'pon being 
asked what ailed him, Durrant said 
that while endeavoring to repair the 
electric wires he had been overcome 
by the escaped gas. He was so com- 
pletely overcome that he asked King 
to go out and purchase some brumo 
seltzer for him. 

King told this story and Durrant. 
when questioned regarding the matter, 
admitted the sras story but declared 
that King had greatly exaggerated the 
description of his condition. 


Says His Mexican Remarks 
Were Distorted. 

Raleigh. N. C Aug. 15.— Hvn. Matt 
W. Ransom, I'nlted States minister to 
Mexico, said today that he expect*-*! 
to be well enough to return to his post 
of duty in about two weeks. His ap- 
pearance is in every way hearty. The 
minister, in the course of a conversa- 
tion, expressed the greatest regret that 
the report of alleged criticism by him 
of the Mexican government ever had 
anv existence. In speaking of Mexico 
hehad invariably expressed a very high 
opinion of the present administration 
of the president and of his cabinet. 

•I have never uttered a word wl ich 
1 conceived could be construed as dero- 
gatory." he said. "I do not think the 
statement emanated from malice. 11 
may be possible that in speaking of tht: 
alleged position of Mexico in reference 
to extradition of fugitives from Justice. 
1 used some expression that citizenship 
was the first and highest element of 
good government and that no country 
could ^afford to have that right estab- 
lished by anything like fraud. Some 
inadvertent listener to some remark of 
this kind must have construed the fraud 
alluded to as applying to Mexican 
officials and not to the miserable device 
of the fugitive who has employed it.'"

Sec. isy. "Looking then, to tl)e vast 
changes which occurred prior to IST'.I in 
the relative production of the two metals 
without anv corresixjntilng disturltauce 
In their market value, it aiipears to us 
difncuit to resist the conclusion that some 
Influence was then at work tending to 
steady the price of silver, and to keep 
the ratio which It bore to gold approxi- 
mately stable. 

Sec IH'2. "These considerations seem 
to suggest the existence of some steady- 
ing influence in former periods, which 
has now been removed, and whicli has 
left the silver market subject to the in- 
fluence of causes, the full effect of whidi 
was previously kept in check. The ques- 
tion, therefore, forces itself upon us: Is 
there anv other circumstance calculatwl 
to effect" the relation of silver to gold 
which distinguishes the latter from the 

•.Now undoubtedly the date which forms 
the dividing line between an eixich of ap- 
proximate lixlty in the relative value ot 
gold and silver and one of marke.i in-

svstem"whlcl> had previously been in forcOi 
in the Latin union ceased to be in full op- 
eration; and we are Irresistibly led to the 
conclusion that the operation of that sys-

population and commerce of which were 
considerable, exerted a material influence

metals. , 

"So long as that systen'; was In force vm»

in the production and the use of the 
precious metals, it kept tlie market price 
of silver approximately steady at the ra- 
tio lixed by law between them, namely,

Sec. W3. "Nor does it appear to us a 
priori unreasonable to suppose that the 
existence In the Latin union of a bimet- 
allic svFtem with a ratio of l.i'^ to 1 
fixed between the two mef.^s should have 
been capable of keeping the market price 
of sliver steady at aviproximately that 

"Tlie view that It could only affect the 
market price to the extent to which there 
was a demand for it for currency pur-

countries, is. we think, fallacious. 

"The fact that the owner of silver could

The situation in France, and the nature 
of the bimetallic adjustment, is admir- 
ably set forth in the following eloquent 
words of Cernuschi in the conterence ot 
18S1: "Until 1874, a clear and sonorous 
voice was alwavs heard resounding from 
the banks of the Seine; it said: 'I am 
France, rich in gold and rich ui silver 
I can arrange that in the entire world 
the two metals form but one money. 
Peoples and nations! bring to Paris all 
the gold and silver you like. I take it 
all For a hundred weight of gold, or for 
15V. hundred weights of silver, I will al- 
wa'ys give you the same quantity of 
francs. Let the production of one metal 
or the other be more or less abundant, 
more or les.s costly, it will be immaterial 
to me. Peoples and nations! do you want 
KOld? bring sliver. Do you want silver .' 
bring gold. As blmetallist, the Freiich 
have no preference for one metal or the 
other: they will always make exchange 

Haotf. 3- Grand for yo"' ''' >'"" '^"O^' how to ask it, of one 
Haute, 3. uranu ^^^^^ j^r the other on the basis of lo'a, 
and in the two hemispheres the relative 
value of the two metals will always and 
everywhere be the same." ^,,„,., 

And France lived up, to this offer. Chart 
E shows how for eighty years the Lon- 
don market ratio was practically the 
French coinage ratio, and how. when the 
mints b<-gan to refuse entrance to si vcr 
it commenced to fall and has kept falling 
.IS that policy has continued and extend- 

* Can the I'nlted States of America do 
now what France did twenty-tiv« years 
aKO' When asked if Kngland could do 
It Sir Henry Hucks GIbbs. ex-governor 
of the Bank of England, answered ' any 
great nation can do It." The wholly un- 
substantiated claims of the impo.ssibillt> 
of successful independent action are so 
endlessly repeated that they have been 
accepted by a great many people merely 
becaust-of the loudness and frequency 
with which they are asserted. We do not 
sufflcientlv realize what a powerful na- 
tion we are and what we can do if we s.-l 
about it. We need a little of the spirit 
of 1776. Why, we are more afraid of Eng- 
land now. after we have grown big 
enough to whip all creation, than our 
fathers were when they could count no 
more jKtpulation than the state of Ohio 
has now. So long as we want her to do 
It England will manage our money sys- 
tem for us, and we may depend on her 
having an t-ye on England's interests 
while she Is at it. , 

I make the assertion that, in nearly 
every respect, the conditions enabling a 
nation to support a system of bimetalllsnr» 
are todav more favoral>le to the United 
States than they were to France from 
18(»3 to 1873. To begin with (see chart D). 
from 1H03 to 1870 the average number of 
ounces of silver in the world in coin and 
available for coinage was thirty times as 
great as the number of ounces of gold. 
Yet she made It possilde during all that 
time to go into the market and buy as 
much with l.')4 ounces of silver as could 
be bought with one ounce of gold. To- 
day there are only 16.3 times as man.v 
ounces of silver In the world's stock as of 
gold. Our ratio of coinage, 16 to 1, would, 
to commence with, almost exactly corres- 
;)ond to the natural ratio by weight. 
Otight it not to be very much easier to 
float two metals at 16 to 1 when the r< la- 
tlve amounts of them are practically just 
that, than to do It when there were twict 
as many ounces of silver to one of gold 
as the ratio called for? 

Again, If the demand for the use of a 
metal Is the test of ability to maintain it 
at parity, the case is still stronger. In 
"Xtent and variety of power to jrlve em- 
ployment to money, the United States to- 
day Is immeasurably greater In respect 
to the general capa-lty of the world than 
was France twenty-live and more yearti 
ago. Havs Mulhull. the worlds great. 'st 
statistician: "If we take a survey of man- 
kind in aneleiit nr mnflern tltnes as re- 
gards tlie physical, mechanical and Int.d- 
lectual force of nations, we tind nothing 
to compare with the United States In tills

says Mulhail. "that the United States

In comparing!: the two countries In res- 
pect to <-onuiit'rce, a most Imnortant 
point is thi.s: III proportion as tlie for- 
oi«ii cuniinei.i. of a nation is small rel.i- 
tively to thi' entire bulk of trade. It Is 
easy to niiilntain a money system pos- 
sessing indepi'iident features. In 1S70 the 
total exports and imports of the world 
were, approximately. $1I,000,000,0<10. and 
those of France a little more than f1,100,- 
tKH(, or about 111 per cent of the whole. In 
1R.S9 the worlds total was nearly $17,(H»(},- 
tHK>,iKj(t, and till share of the United States 
was about J1.'.ik),(hX), or nearly 10 per cent. 
While it is impossible to obtain data as 
to the internal commerce of various 
countries wiili completeness and ac- 
curacy. enoii^;h exists to show us that a 
very much Kiiater percentage of the total 
commerce of France in 1870 was foreign 
than the percentage of foreign 
commerce in the total trade of this coun- 
try today. It is commonly considered 
that not mor< than 4 i>er cent of our trade 
Is with foreinii countries, wliile it is safe 
to say that in France in lS7ii fully three 
limes that inoportion of her trade was 
of that cliara<ter. 

In agriculture 1 have not at hand the 
figures for ls7ii, but Mulhail gives the 
total value oi the world's principal agri- 
cultural products for 1S.S7 at about $19,- 
74O,()lK),O00, of which the share ol France 
was $2,3(K»,(t(;(i.iK«), or somewhat less than

In manufactures, France in l&tiO pro- 
duied |l,90(),tH)0,000 worth 
out of the world's total of $12,(KK),000,000. 
or about Pi per cent: in 1S8S, $2,4ac.,iHM),ooo 
out of l'23.(Hii».(Hj<»,000, or less than 111 per 
cent. If her share for lS7(t be taken as 
the average of these two years, she 
would that v.-ar have producel about 13 
per cent of tin- world's manufactures. The 
United State.-i in 1S.SS had about $7.'215,00O,- 
INMi wortli ( f manufactures, or over 
31 per cent oi the world's entire product. 
In 1S70 the railway mileage of France was 
'.•770, and that of the world 128,235, the per- 
centage of Fiance being 7%. In 1S8S, of 
the world's :i,>»,31(i miles of railway the 
United State.x had l.">t;,080. being about 43 
per cent of the mileage of the entire 
world, and :!6.t»S0 miles more than all 
f.2urope combined. 

In 1870 the railway freight tonnage of 
Europe was lOl.OtlO.OtlO tons, of which the 
proportion ol France was ■S2,00(l.WiO tons, 
or about 13 per cent. In 18.SS her share 
was 7S,(.H»0,0tii» out of 765.01.10,000 tons, or Id 
2-l'> per cent ; while the tonnage of the 
I'nited Statt s was .5»0,0«)0,000 tons, or 
nearly eight times as much as that of 
France and three-quarters as much a.^ 
that of all Kurope. Of a like signifi- 
cance is the comparative tonnage carried 
on canals and rivers, being In France 
14.5iK),000 ton.'; in 1S70 and 24,500.0(MI in 1S85. 
as against .'.l.t>Oii,<K)0 tons in the United 
States in the latter year. The total canal 
and river mileage of France Is 7730, and 
of the United States 51,834, or 30 per cent 
of the world's mileage of that character. 
Add to this the enormous capacity of our 
great lake svstem and the unequalled fa- 
cilities for the development of internal 
commerce can be partially realized. 
But the most convincing comparison 
as a basis ot judgment of the matter in 
hand, is as to the relative banking power 
of France in 1S70 and the United States 
in 1X»I (the statistics for 1895 not being 
at my present command), in proportion 
to the total banking power of the world 
at those respfctlve dates. In 1S70 the 
world's banking power was about $8,000,- 
()Ou,000, and thai of France was $32O,(JO0,OO(i, 
or 4 per cent, in 1890, and the proportion 
is still more favorable to us in 1895. the 
world's banking power was nearly $16,- 
0(10,000,000, and that of the United States 
was 32 per cent of that tremendous ag- 
gregate, or $.-..150,000,000. Of course the 
gold standard men will point to the 
doubling of the Ijanking capacity of the 
world in the last twenty odd years as 
proof of the diminished need of money, 
and will cite the very exceptional equip- 
ment of this country in that respect as 
an argument that we cannot use any 
more primarv money. But it is too plain 
for dispute that this great growth in the 
world's means of economizing gold, coin- 
ciding as it does, so closely with the stepK 
by which the volume of ultimate money 
has been deliberately curtailed, gives con- 
vincing support to our position that more 
primary money is a crying n^d of thi' 
world Credit has been expanded to the 
utmost, far beyond the safety limit: gold 
has appreciated beyond all precedent: and 
to try to meet the demands of business 
this bankini power has been evolved. 
It Is an exact index of the increased 
need for primary or real money, and 
shows conclusively that the capacity of 
the United States today to absorb a new 
suodIv of real money Is almost Incalcula- 
ble Properlv viewed it is the strongest 
assurance tliat could l>e desired that the 
Inited Stales need not fear her ability 
to give emplovinent to all the silver that 
could come to our mints. 

And how much .silver w-ouid come? We 
hear a ereat deal about the flooding of 
this country with silver: the making 
the United States a "dumping ground 
the world's sliver." This is one of those 
Imseless cries that are so industriously

We have heard so much? 

They call Us ' inllallonists." It is a 
false appellation. Inflation Is a teim ap- 
plicable to over-issues of cre<lii, wiiicli

and quickens Industry, raises prices and

ment of the liKiuslrlal world. The true

est possible l>asls of primary money, and 
tlio largost possibi*' superstruoture of 
credit threatening constantly to explode 
and linally exploding with Inlinlte loss and 
suffering to tlie community. 

We are also termed "repu'llators." 
That too Is false. Wherever a promise to 
pay gold has been made it must lie kept. 
And It can bo kept, too, easier then and 
now ; because when prices rise goltl will 
fall, and even tiiough there should for 
a tlmi- be a nominal premium on gold, it 
would take less goods ami less silver to 
buy it then than now. whether to settle 
contracts or international balances. But 
wliere the contract is silent as to the

ple of right, Init tho municipal law and thw 
law of nations everywhere, recognize the 
f,'ilrnoss of the principle that it should be 
liquidated in whatever fnoney the wisdom 
and justice of the people have provhled. 
These men never have complained where 
gold was growing dearer and burdens 
heavier, and a 2(Kt-cent or 150-cent dollar 
Is tlieir conception of "honesty." But if 
our view lie right, injustice will be done 
to no man, for all ultimate money will

Much is made of the allegation that l>e- 
fore 1S73 we did not have bimetallism in 
this i-ountry, Ijecause now one metal and 
now the other went abroad. 1 cannot 
now pause lo answer fully this point. 
Suffice it to say that the chief reason 
why the metals alternated in preponder- 
ant circulation was, that the mint of 
France was open all the time, and that 
our first ratio, 15 to 1. overvalued silver 
and our second. 16 to 1, undervalued it 
as compared with France, and that there- 
fore coinage showed the effects of the 
tendency of the metals to seek the most 
advantageous markets. 

There is nothing strange in this, nor 
nothing harmful about it. When one 
metal was overvalued the other was un- 
dt rvalued, and when we lost one we got 
the other. The absolutely concurrent use 
of both melals is no necessary part of Id- 
metallism. I^et the gold people remem- 
ber this and cease thinking that they 
have demolished the principle when they 
have only succeded In misunderstand- 
ing It. Both metals become one by virtue 
of the alternatively emphasized pressure 
on one and on the other, as hereinlx^fore 
explaini/l: and wlierever either is it 
forms part of the world's sum of measur- 
ing metal, and all values are regulated 
in it and bv it from pole to pole.. I'lider 
free coinage again the same effects re- 
marked before 1873 could not now occur 
to the same degree, because the gold 
coining nations of Europe have no open 
mints for silver. 

Fellow citizens. 1 have detained you 
too long. And yet, though 1 have been 
tedious, my mind is full of matters ne- 
glected utterly or but briefly considered. 
But 1 have endeavored to make plain 
some of the leading principles of this sub- 
ject, and trust I have not labored wholly 
in vain. I am deeply grateful for your 
considerate attention: and for the extent 
to which I have imposed upon it I can 
only offer the excuse of the importance 
of the question we have discussed. It is 
all important. It lakes hold on the very 
tap-roots of national prosperity and indi- 
vidual happiness. The fate of the world 
Is linked with it. May God put it in 
your wav and mine to do something to 
advance it. if in his inrtnite wisdom, he 
approve the cause! To advance it we 
must educate and stimulate public opin- 
ion. In a free government that is the 
rtnal arbiter of all social and political 
concerns. "With public sentiment," said 
Lincoln at Ottawa in 18,58, "nothing can 
fail: without it nothing can succeed." 

And so, let us first seek the helpins 
hands of our suffering sister nations: 
but if they are constrained by sinister 
forces and dare not meet with us to 
achieve the common good of all, let Amer- 
ica, the evangel of liberty and justice, 
imitating the example of lieautiful 
France, raise high her "clear and sono- 
rous voice" resounding from the shores 
of the Western sea: let her say: "I arr. 
Columbia, rich in gold and rich in silver. 
I can arrange that in the entire world 
the two metals shall form but one money. 
Peoples and nations! bring all the gold and 
silver vou like. 1 take it ail. For a hun- 
dred weight of goK or sixteen hundred 
weight of silver, I will give you the same 
number of dollars. Let the production of 
one metal or the other be more or loss 
abundant, more or less costly, it will l>e 
immaterial to me: I will never alter my 
ratio of 16 to 1 unless it is to agree with 
yours. Peoples and nations! Do you 
want silver? bring gold. Do you want 
gold? bring silver. As bimetalhsts the 
Americans have no preference for one 
metal or the other: they will always 
make the exchange for you, if you know 
how to ask for it, that is in buying and 
celling in our market: and in the two 
hemispheres the two metals, gold and sil- 
ver, silver and gold, shall form one 
money, just, benign and glorious!"

in the statement that chol- 
era is working frightful havoc in Japan 
the newspapers of tlmt country contain 
no reference to the devastation of the 
plague. This is probably due to tho 
fact that the disease finds its victims 
chlefiv among soldiers recently returned 
from" the front, and the government 
thtrefore takes advantage of the law- 
relating to the press censorship to full- 
est extent.

A Case Which Has Once More 
Bobbed Up. 

.\ familiar title in the district court 
calendar for some time has been th' 
Wisconsini Red Pressed Hrick com- 
pany against David Hood and the 
Hurd Refrigerator company to recover 
for brick nse«l in the Hurd Refrigera- 
tor company's plant at New Duluth. 

The cla.lm Is small, only about $160, but 
the case came up for its third trial this 
morning before Judge Lewis, after two 
visits to the supreme court, and the 
bill of costs amounts to more than the 
original claim. 

Indeed the claim is probably almost 
lost sight of by this time and the fight 
Is as much to escape the payment of 
costs as to settle the original litiga- 
tion. Both the other judges have 
tackletl the case and have been over- 
ruled, and now it comes before Judge 
Lewis. Daviil Hood is the contractor 
who built the Hurd plant. In his con- 
tract with Hurd hrick known as "kiln 
run" was called for. In his contract 
with the brick company he called f. t 
common brick of goixl quality. 

The bricks supplied wtre not the kin«A 
called for in the contract with Hurd. 
so the latter refu.sed to pay for them. 
Hood claimed that they were not the 
kind mentioned in his contract with thd 
brick company. bK-ause they contained 
a latent defect in the clay which com- 
pose^l -them, s > that they broke up m 
the building. 

Judge Ensign heard the case first and 
he found for the defense, holding thi:t 
as the bricks were not the kind call'd

and Judge Moer took hold of It. 

He decided that the defendants could

there was a latent defect in the brick

the clay of which they were composed. 
This also was revised and the case

of this evidence of the syndicate's deter- 
mination to keep its agreement to pro- 
tect th»f ti-easury up toi Oct. l. Cut they 
t^ay nothing about what is going to 
happen after that date. They are silent 
as to the probabilities when the syndi- 
cate will withdraw its support and the 
lKK>r government must rely upon Itself. 
What will result? Must the govern- 
ment then issue more bonds to the syn- 
dicate in order to get enough gold to 
keep the reserve Intact? 

There is a grfiat lesson for the Ameri- 
can people in this slate of things. The 


That interest in the money Question 
is not declining and that the cause of 
bimetallism is steadily growing in favor 
was made evident by the large and 
splendid audience which gathered at the 
Temple Opera house la.^t night to listen 
to Congressman Townes address upon 
that subject. It was a representative 
gathering of Duluihs citizens, embrac- 
ing men in all walks of life and a good- 
sized number of ladies who appeared to 
be equally interested in the speaker's 
argument. The frequent applause which 
greeted some telling point made by Mr. 
Towne in favor of bimetallism or in de- 
nunciation of the single gold standard 
and its attendant train of evils, showed 
unmistakably that nearly every person 
present was thoroughly in accord with 
the speaker's view of the question. 

The illustrations of some of the argu- 
ments by large, clearly printed charts 
was a novel feature that pleased the 
audience greatly and at the same time 
made it much easier for Mr. Towne to 
Impress the chief points of his argument 
upon his hearers. It was a happy idea 
on Mr. Towne's part, and served to re- 
lieve the necessar>- monotony of the 
statistical portion of the speech. It is 
also probable that the lessons conveyed 
by the striking illustrations upon the 
charts were impressed indelibly upon 
the memory of those who studied them. 
In publishing Mr. Towne's speech in i»ts 
entirety in today's issue, it had been the 
intention of The Herald to reproduce all 
these charts, but by some mistake on 
the part of the engraver, only two of 
them were received in time for publica- 
tion today. These are Charts D and E. 
which speak eloquently of the effects of 
silver demonetization in increasing the 
divergence between the commercial 
value of gold and silver, and how the 
bimetallic system maintained the parity 
of gold and silver for many years with 
but slight variations. 

The Herald invites the attention of its 
readers to the exhaus»tive argument 
made by Mr. Towne in favor of bimetal- 
lism and particularly to the able demon- 
stration of this country's ability to 
adopt and maintain bimetallism without 
the co-operation of the European coun- 
tries. No one can read this speech 
without being convinced of the justice 
of the claims of the bimetallists and 
being impressed with the great strength 
of the argument that, falling an inter- 
national agreement, the United States 
must independently cut the Gordlan 
knot and loosen the grasp of the gold

A ilisi«.itih from Sault Sle. Marie. 
.Mii'h.. states that a syndicate of Phila- 
delphia capitalists has puivhase<l the 
water power canal there and will at 
on<-e develop the power for paper and 
oth.r mills. This shoufd direct the at- 
tention of the pt opie of Duluth to the 
necet»slty of giving every encoura«e- 
ineiit ptissible ti> thos<' who are seekhig 
to utilize the great water iK>wer that is 
fountl within easy distance of this cHy. 
If the plans af the Minnesota Canal 
conii>any were carrleil out. as there, is 
every Indication they will be when all 
I. 'gal obstiu'les are removed. Duluth 
would Iveoome a great manufacturing 
center, because of the great and cheap 
pi>wer which would be furnished. With 
cheap water power there wxuld be no 
point In the country more favoa-ably 
situated fc>r the economical manufac- 
ture of Hi>ur. There would be numerous 
accessions to the number of flour mills 
heiv. And It would be but a short time 
when pulp mills would be established, 
and after them would follow many other 

The possibilities of Duluth as a manu- 
facturing center, if provided with cheap 
power, are illimitable. The proposed 
utilization of the water power at Sault 
Ste. Marie, however, warns us that we 
mi>st be up and doing. If we do not 
act (luickly. other places will gain In- 
dustrial establishments that would be 
kK-ated here. Every flour mill or pulp 
mill established at the Sault means one 
less here. If such Industries find it 
profitable to locate at the Sault because 
of the cheap power to be obtained, how 
much more pr(»fltable it would be to 
locate at Duluth. with an infinitely 
more advantageous geographical hx'a- 
tlon. and with a greater and cheaper 
water power? 

But Duluth will never move forward 
In the manufacturing line so long as 
those who design to develop the neigh- 
boring water power are obstructed and 
opposed by those who should be glad 
to lend them a helping hand It should

The latest advertising scheme made its

bare headed, regirdless of the hot sun.

pate, and threw Its reflections around 

It was not the baldness, though, that 
drew the crowd of urchins, who followed

took, and the smooth, brainy salesman 
suceeded In leaving a goodly quantity of

The report that the state census will 
show the population of Duluth to be 
52.M6 Is rather disappointing to many 
people who had expected to see tuis 
city make a better showing. There is 
no doubt that the population of Duluth 
is much greater than the figures given. 
and it may be that the official bulletin 
from the census bureau will show that 
we have more«people than the forecast 
Indicates. The Herald believes that 
Duluth has more than 60.0<)0 people re- 
elding within its limits, and the census 
figures will not change its belief. The 
enumeration was not taken with suf- 
ficient care to ensure a full count. The 
whole system under which the census 
wa-s taken was wrong. There was not 
sufficient allowed to secure a complete 
census, and the miserable pay which 
the enumerators received did not en- 
courage them to make any special ef- 
forts to secure the names of all those 
living in their districts. 

And yet a gain of 59 per cent in five 
years, as the figures now given would 
Indicate. Is a record of which Duluth 
can properly l)oast. There Is no other

Minneapolis, lAug. 15.— The North- 
western Miller gives the following epi- 
tome of the week's milling news: The 
flour output at Minneapolis was 176,175 
barrels against 192,005 barrels last week, 
175.010 barrels the .same week in 1894 and 
177.365 barrels the same week in 189,'5 
Water power is considerably better and 
the output this week may reach 2*20,000 
barrels. Sales of fiour last week approx- 
imated 240,000 barrels. With some firms 
export business has considerably over- 
:--hadowed domestic, and patent was 
mostly work. 

The balk of it was for the United 
Kingdom. Low i)rices had to be ac- 
.-epted. Foreigners show interest, and 
;?t present prices were wheat to remain 
steady for a short time, they would 
probably take hold freely. Clear is bid 
for. but with millers sold ahead and 
holding prices relatively higher than on 
patent, the importer is induced to turn 
his attention to the latter. 

An occasional offer is made for second 
clear and red dog, such figures usually 
being around 15s :]d for the former and 
13s to 13s 6d for the latter. Quotations 
for London. C. I. F. terms are: Patent, 
•'ls@21s 9d per 280 pounds. Clear, 17@ 
18s 3d. There was no snap about the 
domestic trade. Patents are 5c or more 
lower. Bulk feed, particularly bran, is 
5*)@75 cents a ton lf«wer and moves less 
freely. Export shipments flour are .)6.- 
180 barrels against 50.470 the week be- 
fore, 37,300 in 1894 and 67.-500 In 1893.

Field's -Darkt-st America " drew 
a crowded house at the Lyteum last 
nt^ht. The show is an ordinary min- 
strel company, with an ordinary first 
part, in which Hilly Jackson. Harry 
Fiddler. John Kucker and Adolph Hen- 
derson were the end men and Kdwin 
Winn a.-*ted as interlocutor. This part 
of the show i.s inclined to be stale, to say 
the least, as it does not depart in the 
slightest from the first part which has 
grorwn familiar to theater-goers from 
years of experience. The same remark 
imi.srhL be made to apply to nvany of the 
Jokes. The singing is not good, but 
several of the p)erformers dance fairly 
well. Billy Jackson has a smile that is 
contagious, but his jokes and songs are 
vulgar even for a minstrel. 

Harry Fiddlers india rubber mouth 
and his character imitations were 
good, and Cicero and Master Reed s 
peculiar acrobatic specialty was excel- 
lent. F. W. Simpson put lots of ex- 
pression into a sliije trombone solo, and 
Andy Williams, the human frog, twisted 
himself into knots satisfactorily. 



Tonight the McKanlass concert for the 

Cured by the Pyramid Pile Cute. 

There are plenty of pile cures which 
give relief and sometimes cure a mild 
case of piles, but there is only one which 
can be depended upon with certainty to 
cure obstinate, long-standing cases, and 
that Is the Pyramid Pile Cure. 

Endorsements and testimonials are 
received daily from men and women 
whose initegrity and reliability are 
above question, and in this connection a 
letter received from the Rev. James H. 
Wesbrook, of Bowne, Mich., may be of 
interest to pile sufferers who have 
sought in vain for a cure. He says: 

I have used the Pyramid Pile Cure and 
I know that it is all that is claimed for 
it. I have been troubled with piles 
more or less for about eighteen years 
and I had tried other remedies, but the 
I>iles grew worse until about ten months 
ago I used the Pyramid Pile Cure. It 
gave almost instant relief and I have 
been free from piles ever since. Rev.

The Pavilion i.« drawing better and 
better these days and the change in the 
evening program under which the Ciiy 
band gives a concert in the first \<avi 
seems to meet with popular api>rov:i! 
l.,ast evening the band rendered a num- 
ber of fine selections, among them Mey- 
erbeer's •Mill in the Forest," Suppes 
ovierture. "Jolly Fellows," Hermins 
waltz. 'Angels' Dreams." 

In Ahrno and Juno Oolden the Pavil- 
ion has two great attractions. Ahni.> 
is the greatest balancing wonder ami

Sadi Alfarabl who was such a favorite 
here early in the season. Golden does 
a turn which he calls a Mephisto novel- 
ty and is marvelous. He ties himself 
into a bow knot as nearly' as a man 
can and with his satanic costume ami 
sardonic grin looks unearthly. John T. 
Powers, the comedian, is also meeting 
with great success. 

Tonight the program will be changcil 
somewhat. The band will not give ilie 
first part and the Heywood celebrities 
will monopolize the program for the 
next three days. This company has 
eight artists: Miss Cecile Iverness.

A meeting of horsemen and those in- 
terested in horse racing, lias been called 
by prominent citizens ito l>e held at the 
St. Louis hotel next Saturday evening 
at 8 o'clock. The object is to form a 
Duluth association, with the aim of hav- 
ing two days of good racing here some 
•time in September, and in enter in the 
Northwestern association, which is now 
composed of Ironwood, Ashland, Iron 
River and probably Superior. There 
are a number of good horses ow ned here, 
and more are expected. The move is in 
no way connected with the late Duluth 
Driving Park association, although the 
grounds will be leasetl fi«r the purposes 
.if the race. It is proposed to arrange 
for three good races for each day of the 
meet, with liberal purses hung up for 
the participants. 

All parties interested In clean, genuine 
horse racing are invited to be present 
and otherwise participate. There has 
.always been considerable interest in 
horse racing in Duluth ami vicinity, but 
it has had but little opportunity for the 

Fine Musical at Pilgrim Church 
Last Evening. 

Arthur* G. Drake's organ recital at the 
Pilgrim Congregational church last 
evening did not draw the audience it 
deserved, for a program was given 
which merited a packed house. Mr. 
Di"ake played some exceedingly diffi- 
cult selections and rendered them in a 
manner which could call forth only the 
most favorable criticism. His opening 
number was Rink's "Flute Concerto," 
an imposing number requiring great 
brilliancy of execution and intelligent 
interpretation. Lemmen's "March 

Pontificalle" and the dainty little gav- 
otte from "Mignog" were received 
wiith great favor. Mr. Di-ake concluded 
his numbers with three movements of 
Guilmant's fii-st sonata, another very 
difficult number. This was the second 
recital given by Mr. Drake, and in both 
he has proved himself to be a concert 
organist of exceptional ability. His 
execution is exact and brilliant, he has 
great force and vigor and delicacy as 
well, and his shading and expression are 
excellent. He plays not as a mere per- 
former, but as one who is a master of 
the instrument. 

Chr. Oelschlagel. violinist, made his 
first appearance in Duluth and played 
Boehm's "l^gende." It was excellently 
rendered and the audience was anxious 
to hear him again, but he resolutely re- 
fused to respond to an encare. 

Miss Rebecca McKenzie sang a cava- 
tina from the opera, "Der Fieischutz. " 
It is a beautiful selection and Miss Mc- 
Kenzie sang it with exciuisite delicacy 
and feeling. Duluth has no young

The painful question that will .soon be 
wringing i»arents' hearts — "Will baby 
get through the summer?" — must be 
sciuarely faced. 

The fearful number of infant deaths 
every summer from cholera infantum is 
due to the ignorance of well-meaning 

Improper food is now known to be the 
cause of nine-tenths of all the frightful 
infant mortality of August. 

Mother's milk, when healthy and suf- 
ficient, is the ideal infant food; but when 
in the first year of the baby's life re- 
course must be had to another food, or 
when the time comes for weaning the 
child, lactated food by all manner of 
means should promi>tly be given prefer- 
ence to anything else. It has saved the 
lives of thousands of babies. 

Mothers and nurses who have used 
lactated food all agree that it best suii- 
plies the materials for baby's rapid 
growth and development. Lactated 
f(jod is prepared with a regard to purity, and freedom fi"om possibility 
of contagion that merits all the 
that has been st) lavishly bestowed upon 
it by the phy.sicians. 

The nutritious parts of barley, wheat 
and oats are s<i prepai-ed as to be easily 
assimilated: to these are added sugar of 
milk and the salts which are the basis 
of mothers milk. These constituents are 
thoroughly cooked at high steam heat, 
and make a predigested, palatablo. 
nutritious food, a perfect substitute for 
mother's milk, fit for meeting every de- 
mand of the rapidly growing child. 

I^actated food has tidied thousands of 
babies through the sickly hot days?. It 
should be in the hands of every parent. 

Mrs. Edward Hilands, of Franklin. 
Pa., whose beautiful baby is shown 
above, says: 

"Our baby was very delicate, but n')W 
is one of the healthiest children in the 
state. If it had not been for lactated 
food I know she would not be alive to- 
day, for before she commenced itsuse she 

was skin and bones. I tried 's food. 

and I don't know how many others, and 
they seemed to do more harm than good. 
She is 2 years old now and is still living 
on lactated food, and will be for two 
years to come, for it keeps her in per- 
fect health, and that is what I want."

The matters pertinent to discussion at 
this time are too numerous and fertile to 
permit the consideration of more than a 
few of them within the limit which a 
regard for vour comfort must prescribe. 
I shall therefore confine myself mainly to 
the chief aspe.ts of the principles laid 
down in the declaration signed by the 
members of this club, viz: 

"First. Thai the single gold standard 
is and has been since its adoption by the 
leading commercial nation.s. an appreci- 
ating standard, whose unit has rapidly 
increased in general purchasing power, 
and must if undisturbed continue so to in- 
crease that this appreciation is evidenced 
bv a progressive fall of prices throughout 
the gold standard world, not accountcfl 
for by diminished cost of production: and 
that its inevitable result is to augment 
the burden of all debts, to di.s<ourage in- 
vestment and enteri>rise, and to under- 
mine the productive forces of the coun- 

•Se. ond. That the great decline in the 
market price of silver since ISTJ has been 
mainlv if not wholly cau.sed by legisla- 
tion limiting the money functions of that 
metal. ,, ^. 

"Third. That notwithstanding other 
and needed reforms in the li.scal and cur- 
rencv svstems of the I'nited States, no 
enduring social happiness and national can be ours until both gold and 
silver are treated alike in our monetary 
svstem and the two metals form together 
the one standard money of ultimate re- 

What Is the .single gold standard'.' F or- 
meity the leading commenial nations 
iisw-d' l>oth gold and silver as standard 
money. The word single is used to con- 
trast that system of the .joint standard. 
or as it is more i-ommonly but less hap- 
pily called, the double standard, with the 
■ system now general among the principal 
IK»wers. wherein gold alone is the stan- 
dard. Where this prevails the mints are 
open to the free and unlimited coinage 
of gold only: the unit coin, which gives 
its name to the language of accounts and 
by its multiples and subdivisions regulates 
the values of other coins, is of gold; and 
the monev of linal redemption and legal 
tender, that is money which under any 
and all circumstances is full and final 
pavment and which a debtor can be com- 
pelled to take to any amount, is gold. 
This standard was adopted by Englantl in 
1S1«, and bv the I'nited States, France and 
various other countries, in 1S73 and sub- 
s«-quent vears. as we shall hereafter see. 
.Much confusion is caus<d in monetary 
discussion bv the habitual and unavoid- 
able use, in describing or qualifying cer- 
tain abstract concepts of the science, of 
words that involve definite physical proi>- 
erties. Standard and unit are examples, 
fxcurring in the expressions "standard of 
valii« ■ and "unit of value." p.y the On- 
nirv Dictionary standard is defined as "a 
weight, measure or instrument by com- 
parison with which the accuracy of others 
is determined;" and unit as "any stand- 
ard (|uantitv by the repetition an<l sub- 
division of which any other quantity of 
the .same kind is measured." Thus by thc« 
••xpressions referre(l to the mind is cen- 
tered on the thought of weight, dimen- 
Kion and qtiantiy. and thus some per- 
sons are led to the notion that a "dollar' 
or "pound ste-linsr." or "franc" means 
something as abs«^)lute and definite as to 
value as "foil," "yard" and "quart" are 
;i>-- to weight, length and capacity. But 
value is neither .so heavy, so long, or of 
such-and-such contents. You cannot see 
ii. Value is nothing absolute. Value is 
a relation. It is the ratio at which one 
thing exchanges for another. One thing 
may be worth as much as another thing, 
more than another thing, or less than 
another thing; that is, of equal, 
greater, or less value. But it takes 
two things to express value; 

one is compared with the other. When 
four bushels of wheat exchange for a pair 
fcf sandals, the value of one bushel of 
wheal is one quurlt-r of a pair oC sandals; 

w c .s.iy "il is worth" one-qiiartii' as much 
as the sandals. If now a hat exchaiigts 
for two bushels of wh<-at. the value of the 
hat as iompared with the sandals is as 
one to two. Von cannot say that an oti- 
)e»-i is ••distant ■ and convey an intelligible 
idea of its Uication, iinh-.s.s you have re- 
ference at the .saiiu- time to some person 
t>r object wherewith a com|>arison is estab- 
lished. \alue is no im>rc at>.solute than 
distance. The habit of comparing all 
• xchangeablc things with one ihlntj, 
money, has caused us lo lose sight of the nature of the exchange process. When 
It is sai.l that a certain article is worth 
.1 .lollar, the meaning is that the article 
;iMd the ilollar hav.- the same value, that- 
is the same relation lo other things. 
This will in- made clearer by an illustra- 
tion lounded lui what we know to have 
Keen the history of .society. Traile was 
!irst carried on by the exchange of com- 
modities directly, what is called barter, 
each man being compelled to lind an- 
other who could supply him with what 
he neede«l and who also neeiled what he 
had to sv>are. Now. to use our exann>lc 
of a moment agt>, siu>t> in those times 
that the man with an extra pair ot .san- 
dals comes to market lo obtain wheat with 
them. Suppose also that he knows his 
sandals, in the pres«-nt condition of the 
tnirket to be worth as much as two hatS4 
Tpon reaching the market \w tinds hats 
exchanging for two bushels of wheat, 
and at once knows that he can obtain 
lour bushtds for his sandals. Thus trad- 
ing was carried on entirely upon a com- 
plicated svstem of mutual relations of 
commodities. In a sense each commodity 
l>«came in turn a "standard" of values. 
Itairorded a basis of comparing relations. 
Snj.pose our man returning honu' meets it 
neighbor going to market to distio.s«- ot a 
t.air oi sandals ami his neighbor inquires 
the value of sandals there. The man 
would lirst learn what kind of commodity 
his friend desired to tra.le for. II whc-at. 
the answ«-r would be •four bushels. If 
liat.s, the answer would be •two." 

Hut societv coulil not continue in this 
tiiriiation. Convenience .soon suggested 
and necessitv compelled the selection of 
stime one ct>mmodity as a common 
agencv for effecting exchanges; some- 
thing "for which any man could exchange 
his surplus commodity, with the certainty 
that with this he could obtain, from aiiy- 
iKHly who had it U) spare, that which he 
peedcHl In the community that we have 
imagined, let us suppose that wheat i.s 
adopted for this purpose. Values of all 
other things would then at once be 
stated in terms of wheat. Hats would be 
(jiioted at •two bushels"., and sandals at 
•four bushels." or by and by as simply 
•■two" and "four." respectively. On the- 
wav to market the man with the extra 
pair of .sandals would now ask his re- 
turning:: neighl>op what was the price of 
sandals. For price is merely the value of 
a thing stated in terms of the money in 
use; and in essentially this way were 
evolved in society a "stajidard of value ' 
and pric^e as reckoned in it. 

l?v your club's statement is that the 
gold standard and its unit have •'appre- 
c-iated." What does that mean? The 
word appreciate is formed from the 
Latin words, ad. meaning to. and pre- 
tiiim. meaning price, and signifies to rise 
in price or vahie. "What." 1 have heard 
persons exclaim, •"what, do you mean to 
say that the dollar has risen in value'.' 
Del vou mean lo tell me that a dollar can 
change? Is not a dollar always a dol- 

Here let me sav that I consider it •well 
to spend some time on these elementary 
matters even at siome riskof being tire- 
some, because some people find the whole 
difficulty of the mo'ney question pre- 
c'sely on this preliminary point, and 
largely because from their youth up they 
have been in the habit of thinking of the 
dollar exactly as of a physical and un- 
changing measure of dimension. More- 
over, certain people who pretend to be 
bimetallists and declare that there is only 
one question to be discussed and that is 
how to reach Inmeiallism. are constantly 
tilling the news^papers with arguments 
that gold has not appreciated, that it 
cannot ai>preciate: or that certain other 
arguments are good but which are wholly 
beside the point if our premises are true. 
Pursuing our illustration, 1 ask you 
now to note the fact that in the sup- 
posed community the ratios at which va- 
rious commodities would exchange among 
them.selves in thv era of simple barter, 
would depend upon their relative demand 
and supplv. Sandals remaining the 
same if the supply of hats were sud- 
denly diminished one-half while demand 
for them continued as before, or the de- 
mand were doubled while the supply did 
not change, it is obvious that sandals 
and hats would exchange ui>on an equal- 
itv instead of in the ratio of two to one 
a.s formerly. And so if the wheat crop, 
after remaining about the same for many 
vears, were one year to increase tre- 
mendouslv, everything else being as be- 
fore, can anybody doubt that hats and 
sandals would command much more 
wheat in exchange than in former years? 
And will this fact alter when the society 
has adopted wheat as its common de- 
nominator of values? Certainly not. 
The supply of and demand for wheal 
would control the quantiy of it exchanged 
for other things just as absolutely after 
it had become the medium of exchange 
among all commodities as before when 
it served the same identical function but 
in a single transaction. 

Now let us advance another step in our 
primitive community. Various things 
Were employed at different times and 
places as this medium of exchange, but 
whatever was so used, whether cattle, 
lambs, beautiful ,shells or tobacco, it was 
the first form of money, and its inalien- 
able commodity attributes and incidents 
accompanied it and conditioned in various 
ways its operation as money; chief of all 
the inexorable law of supply and demand. 
In course of time and by a natural 
process of development, gold and silver, 
becausei of their universal desirability 
and their exceptional fitness, became tht^ 
common medium in which the values of 
all other commodities were expressed and 
4n relation to whic-h they were ex- 
changed. For ages, as we learn from 
antique inscriptions and from Aristotle. 
Pliny and the Bible, the precious metals 
in ure as money pa.ssed by weight, and 
the amount that should be weighed out 
as the equivalent of any commodity de- 
pended, other things being equal, upon 
the supplv of gold and silver, upon the 
quantity, the number of grains or ounces, 
in existence for the purpose within the 
sphere of tlie market. This is so obvious 
that it seems almost needless to state It. 
There cannot be the slightest doubt that 
in those early days a man exchaging his 
products for gold or silver was able, the 
demand fOr and supply of his products 
remaining the same, to get more of the- 
metals in exchange when they were 
abundant than wh<-n they were scarce. 
If the mass of commodities seeking ex- 
change remained the same In point of 
supply and demand, while only half the 
customary number of grains and ounces 
of gold and silver weiv there to ex- 
change for tliem, it is clear that each 
commoditv would on the average ex- 
change for onlv half as much gold or sil- 
ver as before. It Is equally clear also 
that if the stock of precious metals avail- 
able for exchanges were diminished by 
taking away the whole supply of one of 
them, the effect would be the same as if 
the quantity taken away were propor- 
tionately from each. The metal remain- 
ing having now to do all the work former- 
ly required of both, would greatly rise In 
value owing to this increased relative de- 
mand for, and decreased relative supply 
of, money m«tal. 

By and by the custom originated of 
stamping pieces of these metals with an 
impression showing authoritatively the 
quality and purity of the metal In them. 
Thereafter it would be unnecessary to 
carry scales ancl acids about to test the 
amount and quality of the gold or silver 
offered in trade, but the coins passed as 
containing the weight and fineness of 
metal indicated by the stamp. This great 
convenience, however, did not repeal the 
important law of value we have l>een con- 
sidering. There was no magic In the 
stamp to free the metal from the physical 
conditions Inseparable from its physical 
constitution. The stamp merely said, 
"here are so many grains of tine gold," 
or ••here are so many pennyweights of 
fine silver." The value of these same 
grains or pennyweights of gold or silver 
depended on their supply relatively to the 
demand just as much after they had been 

\alne depends, among other Ihings. large- 
ly uv>on the amount cd" gold there Is avail- 
able lo make dollars of. .... . „„ 

For you must liear in mind the steps 
bv which a system cd' coinage was 
r.'ached. -As long as nicMiey systems em- 
ploy commodity siil>stances, lo make 
money of. so long will the original undei - 
lying principles of barter control t^very 
exchange on the fac.- of the earth. Kv>r.v 
trade then was peri.ctly nuitiial. Kach 
party bcdii bought and sold. He bought 
the "others article and he- .sold his own. 
The siindals bought the wheal and the 
wheat bought the .sandals. Later, the 
weighctl-out gold and silvc-r bought the 
c ommodltv exchanged for It and was itself 
lust as certalnlv lH>iiglit by the c'ommod- 
ity. SInillarlv, at tin- pr., time any 
mall who exchanges anything for money 
l.iiys the moiic-v just as truly as he sells 
lil.H commodity. Hut w.- are so accvis- 
toined to the idea of buying things w; th 
luoiiev that it requires an effort to realtzci 
that we also buy money with things. -And 
monev sometlittes comes high. It is high 
when" we have to pay more than usual 
lor^t. It I.s high when prices are low. bc- 
lausc- the lower prices are the more 
things it takes at the low pric-es to bii.v 
the money. When things command good 
l>rices monev Is chcnip. When things bring 
low prices money is clear. That is the 
trouble with the world today. It takes 
too manv things to buy money. Money 
is too hard lo get. It costs too much. 
Some people cannot see how a dollar 
can ever be anything but a "dollar." 
others again know perfectly well tin- 
potencies of evil wrappeel up in the almost 
undetectable changes in its value. Jind 
they Invoke all the specious artifices that 
ingenuilv can summon up to ridicule and 
disc-ourage Inciuiry. These last loudly de- 
clare themselves In favor of an '•honest 
dollar while thev defend a dollar whu- i. 
as we- shall shortly see. is constantly 
growing at the expense- of the Imlustry 
of the country. One of tlic-lr v>ct rhetori- 
cal pronouncements Is for "a dollar worth 
one hundre-il c-ents."" This is a very safe 
and luodest demaml, for as a cent is the 
hundredth part of a dollar, it is ditlieult 
to sev how a dollar could be worth less 
than i\ hnnelred times a one hundredth 
part of itself. A dollar cannot help l.c-ing 
worth one hundred cents any more than 
a foot can avoid l>eing twelve inches 
long. But what a dollar may be worth at 
any given time in the- average of com- 
modities, is a very different matter, be- 
have seen that it may be worth v-ery 
much more at one time than at another. 
When it increases in ge-neral purchasing 
power, when, in other words, it requires 
more of all other commodities on the ave- 
rage to buy gold, gcdd being the standard, 
then gold "has appreciated. This is the 
only wav of ascertaining and measuring 
the rise or fall of gold, viz: To conipan- 
it with the general level of commodities. 
Vou c-annot dcHect the change in the Hlan- 
daril by comparing it with itself, 
ever elastic a cord may be, it is always 
exactlv as Icmg as It.self. The premium 
on gold todav in the world is disguised in 
its own absoluteness. The only measurr 
of it is the great mass of other things. If 
thev have- fallen gold has risen. c-onc-lusions agree with those of 
the greatest English economists. Said 
Adam Smith, the father of English po- 
litical economy: "(Jold and silver, how- 
ever, like every other commodity, vary 
in their value, are sometimes che-aper and 
sometimes deart-r, sometimes of easier

reprc.seniativi- money was to fac-ilitale 
and expedit.- exchanges. It added nothiiiK 
whate-ver to the- mone.v sloi-k. If, for ex- 
ample, when wheat was In use as the

authorities whose Renins for pradicul and

Huskisson, the- famous British statesman 
anil financier, in his pamphlet on the 
dei>recialion of the currency: "Price 
there-fore-, is the value of any given arti- 
ele in the- «-urreiic-y with refe>rence to 
which that article is measured; and must, 
cd" e-ourse-. be varied by any variation in 
the quantity of gold and silver contained 
In such c-urreiicy." 

Ifour discussion thus far has been of

rem-i's, be-ginning in 1,S73 or thereabouts 
uiid c-ontinuing ever since In a long se-rie.s 
of coniii*e-ti-d events, which look away 
from silver, piaetically a half of the 
world's money, its iirincipal mone-tar.v 
functions and threw the vastly and rapid- 
l.v augmenling business of the worlcl upon 
the narrowe-d basis of gold as primary 
money. The following is a brief summary 
of these e-ve-nts: 

1.S72. Norway and Sweden substitute the 
gold standard for the silver standard. 

1S7;1. The United Stales, while on a 
papc-r basis and looking longingly toward 
resumption of specie payments, adoins 
the- gold standard, although silver at the 
time is worth more in tlio market than 
gold, and though there has been no pub- 
lic demand for such action, the people 
and nearly e-very man in public life being 
ignorant of the real scope and object of 
the act, no amendment to whicii, strik- 
ing the standard silvei-» dollar from our 
coinage, can to this day be found of record. 
Thus on resuming specie payments in 1879 
we became an aggressive scrambler for a 
share of the gold in the world which was 
now becoming more and more the object 
.of the eager pursuit of nations. Between 
1877 and 1X75 we absorl>ed over $5G0,0<tli.(K)ii 
of gold as against about $5,5,(KK»,(XM) in the 
preceding eleve-n years, 

1S73. Germany changes from the- silver 
stamJard to the single gold standard; mak- 
ing a great demand for gold, so that by 
.May. ISSl. she had coined over «414,<kiO,0<JO 
worth of it, and throwing upon the mar- 
ket for .sale as bullion large masses of lieu 
worn and demonetized silver coin, selling, 
b.v lS7!i. more than se-ven million one huii- 
Ired ihou.sand pounds' weight of fine sil- 

1873. Belgian parliament authorizes the- 
government to suspend the free coinage 
jf silver.

hammered into regular shape aii<l stamped 
as when, in their native shape, they were 
weighed in the balance at each exchange 
they effecteel. 

The- same- thing is true today. By 
section 14 of the act of congress of 
Feb. 12, 1x73. which dropped the standard 
silver dollar -from our coinage, the --unit 
of value"" was declared to be the gold 
one dollar piece "at the standard weight 
of twenty-tlvc- and eight-tenths grains.'" 
which means 23.21!»7 grains of tine gold 
with the complement of alloy. The gov- 
ernment has named this amount of gold 
a ■dollar."' but could not decree how much 
it should buy or. what is identically the 
same thing, how much of general c-om- 
modlties should buy the dollar. What it 
take-s to buy a dollar is what the ilollar 
is worth, that Is the value of It. And that 

and sometimes of more diflicult purchase. 
« « • • • -pj^p discovery of the mines 
of America diminishenl the value of gold 
and silver in Europe." (Wealth of Na- 
tions, Worthlngton ed., p p. 24 and 26.) 
John Locke, the great philosopher, In 
his treatise on "The Value of Money," 
said: "By which means it comes to 
pass that the Intrinsic value (of gold and 
silver) * • • is nothing but the quantity 
which men give or receive of them. For 
I'ney having, as money, no other value 
but as pledges to procure, what lone 
wants or desires; and they procuring 
what we want or desire, only by their 
quantity, it is evident that the intrinsic 
value of silver and gold used in com- 
tnerce is nothing but their quantity."" 
("Principles of Pol. Econ." by McCulloch 
and "Essay on interest and Value of 
Money." by John Locke, Ed. of Ward, 
Lock & Co.. p. 23S) The same writer de- 
clares in another place (Works. Vol. \ . 
p. 49): "For the value of money in gen- 
eral is the quantity of ell the money in 
the world in proportion to all the trade." 
In his "Principles of Political Econ- 
omy.'" (Appleton's ed. 1S*(U. Vol. II. pp. 
26-30) John Stuart Mill lays it down: "The 
value or purchasing power of money de- 
pends * • * on demand and supply 
• * • Money Is l)ought and sol<l like 
other things, whenever other things are 
l>oiughL ai»d >fc*old for .money. * * * 
The supply of money * * * is all the 
money In circulation at the time. • * • 
If the whole money in circulation was 
doubled, prices would be doubled. • * • 
If there were less money in the hands of 
the community, and the .same amount of 
goods to be sold, less money altogether 
wouM be given for them, and they would 
be sold at lower prices." 

Robert Oiffen, the ablest champion of 
the gold monometallistf', holds this lan- 
guage In his "Chapter on Standard 
Money:" "In this sense, to say that the 
quantity of money regulates prices is 
only the same thing as to say of any ar- 
ticle that is iwught or sold, that Its quan- 
tity is a material factor in determining 
its value," ("Case Against Bimetallism," 
p. 218.) 

In view of this testimony of the facts 
and of the world's admittedly greatest 
writers uiK)n the subject, it is interesting 
to read in the gold press of Minnesota 
and elsewhere, as well as in the utter- 
ances of certain jirofessors who have vol- 
unteered their opinions, that really it 
doesn't make much difference about the 
quantity of our money if only the quality 
Is satisfactory to a few gentlemen who 
happen to have cornered the most of the 
right quality: that Indeed business re- 
quires almost no money at all, and that, 
apparentl.v, we could get on very well 
even If our stock of money dwindled quite 
to the vanishing point, provideMl we woulcJ 
only stock up thoroughly in "confidence" 
This phase of the subject will be treated 

We have Been how gold may appreciate 
and we have seen that If It does appre- 
ciate the evidence of It will be found In a 
general decline of pricc^s. Before pro- 
ceeding In the light of the principles wo 
have thus examined, to ascertain What 
reason there was to expect that the leg- 
islation of 1873, and thereabouts, would 
be followed by an appreciation of gold, 
and to set forth the evidence establish- 
ing that fact. It Is neces.sary to call 
pointed attention to a i>rlnciple perhaps 
the most vital in the whole range of mon- 
etary cllscusslon; one whose failure to be 
understood by the Kold advocates renders 
a large part of tln-lr arguments wholl.v 
without any applli-atlon. I refer to the 
distinction between primary or funda- 
mental inoney, and representative or 
cre-dit monev. Here again we may obtain 
assistance by recourse to a study of 
what has l>een the actual method of mon- 
etary development in society. 
In the supposed community which we 
have been using as an example, there 
came a time, subsequently to the Intro- 
duction of coinage, when use began to be 
made of symbolii- or representative 
money. The carriage from place to idace 

kind of paper, "uncovered" paper, as it 
is technicallv called. Our gold advocate 
friends are c'onstanlly insisting on a sys- 
tem of bank notes and elaborate provis- 
ions for their redemj)tion. Were it to be 
suggested that such notes could be issued 
regardlessly of the amount of ultimate 
money behind them we should tind a 
pretty tempest about our ears; but this 
very necessitv demonstrates that the pri- 
mary or ulliiiuite money is still the uni- 
versal measure. Bank credits operate 
upon the same principle, liy depositing 
money at a l)ank A has a sum placed to 
his credit. H discounts a note at the 
same bank and gets a loan of part of the 
monev deposited by A. C likewise may 
borrow the rest of it. Then U may de- 
posit bonds, stock certiricates, mortgages 
or other securities, and obtain a credit 
to check against. To meet all these de- 
mands the bank aims to have always at 
hand funds in such proportion to liabili- 
ties as, on the redemption principle, ex- 
perience has shown to be "safe."' Thus 
perhaps one deposit of cash will be skil- 
fully kept Inisv doing double, treble a 
quadruple duty, the credits multiplying 
the circudating medium accordingly. This 
merely shows of course that there is a 
demand for more real money In business, 
but very naturally most of the banks are 
opposed to the Increase of such mone.v, 
which the people could use without in- 
terest. They much prefer to keep the sup- 
ply limited and thus stretch the fabric of 
credit, which pays them interest, to its 
fullest capacitv. But each and every dol- 
lar of all this credit money is of necessity 
based on a dollar of primary money. How 
true this Is mav be seen in cases of pani<t 
when people rush with rei)resentative and 
credit money to get primary money. Such 
departure as may have been occasioned 
from the strict measure of values by the 
quantity of primary money speedily dis- 
appears, and the reckoning during the 
process of lii|uidation or "casting in" 
comes down to the strict primary money 

When pressed our gold standard friends 
will admit that, in their so-called "hon- 
est" and "sound" money scheme wherein 
•'every dollar, whether of gold, silver, or 
paper, shall be as good as every other dol- 
lar " Its whole success depends upon 
prdmpt and certain redemption of all 
token or credit money. Redemption In 
what? In primary money, of course. And 
if vou redeem the credit money in pri- 
mary money, does not your primary 
money measure your credits and your val- 
ues and evervthing that is bought and 

And it is this ultimate measure and 
regulator whose size and constancy so 
many of the gohl advocates declare to be 
of next to no importance. Here they ap- 
proach very near to the flatists of 1878. 
So long ,they declare, as you have plenty 
of "confidence" all will go well. Confi- 
dence In what? They will not be so senti-- 
mental as to claim that by "conhdence 
as so used thev mean that spiritual 
quality of simple and child-like trust in 
the general moral order of the universe. 
No- the only kind of confidence material 
to the circumstances is confidence that 
the promises to redeem will be kept; that 
these huge engines for the manufacture 
and manipulation of credit shall be> able 
tinally to respond In the real ultimate 
substance. How then can they prate of 
"confidence" to people who see them con- 
stantly expanding the top-he-avy struc;- 
ture of credit and narrowing the base it 
rests on? Conlidoncc cannot spring up 
where only distrust is plante^d. Boast of 
how tremendous an accommodation you 
extend to business and how very small an 
amount of real mom-y you do it on, and 
then expect lh.> public to feel p<;rf«-ct con- 
fidence In Its endless extension. No: the 
gold standard hre-eds and must brei-d the 
opposite of confidence. Panic-s must be its 
inevitable result and Intlex 


In this connection I wish to die one

position of which the St. Paul Pioneer

they can "protect" it for pa.v can certain- 
ly loot it for profit, a premium of eight or 
ten millions of dollars for sixty-two mil- 
lions in gold. The crowning humiliation 
of our history! 


This recital, my countrymen, of the 
most important steps by which the world 
is being crowded at an accelerating speed, 
closer and closer upon the ever-narrowing 
basis of gold, is sufficient to explain, 
though it be not the only cause of them, 
the financial cataclysms of the past 
twenty years. The action of England in 
going to the gold standard in 1816 did not 
materially affect the interchangeabiltiy 
of gold and silver nor cause a noticeable 
appreciation of the former. The neigh- 
boring powerful commercial people of 
France, with mints open to both gold and 
silver, performed the function of an etjual- 
izer. But when France, led away in 1873 
bv the false reasoning of the time, and in- 
duced to believe, by the act of Oermany in 
succumbing to the same influence and 
dumping at her back door, so to speak, 
the great mass of fJerman demonetized 
silver, that the bimetallic system could 
no longer be maintained, followed hard 
upon the I'nited States in closing her 
mints to silver, the inevitable effect bt-- 
came at once perceptible, and grew apace 
as one stage succeeded another in the 
long progress which we have summar- 
ized, leading to the universal thraldom 
to the power of gold, (jold rose rapidly 
and constantly in value, more and more 
commodities being rt»qtiired to buy It, and 
silver fell with staggering speed. 

The following tables exhibit the efte^ct 
upon the price of silver: 

From 1687 to 18.32 the ratios are taken 
fronr Dr. A. Soetbeer; from 1833 to 1878

The comparative stability and ^mall 
variation of the market relation of sil- 
ver to gold from 1678 to 1873 Is most re- 
markable; while, from the opening of 
this centurv to the latter year there was 
a practical eolncldence of the market 
value with the French mini ratio, io.M 
to 1 But with the setting in of the re- 
Untle^ss war upon silver as money the 
price as me^isured in gold began a pro- 
k'lessive decline, falling from a ratio of 
15.92 to 1 in 1873 to 32.56 to 1 in 1894. actu- 
allv reaching at one period last year 34 
to"l. (See Chart E.) The second of the 
above tables shows that for forty years 
b.-ginning with 18:53 the price of an ounce 
of line silver on the London market nc-yer 
f^ll bcdow $1.29, but that it be.gan falling 
in 1873 and by 1894 had sunk to 615 cents, 
or a point nearly 52 per cent lower than 
that minimum. , , 

This fall of silver as measured by gold 
(for, as shown by the history of prices 
in the single silver standard countries, 
the i.urchasing power pf silver has re- 
mained substantially constant in those 
countries since 1873) ought in justice to 
be Slated as a rise in gold as measured in 
silver. Referring it. however to our gold 
standard and calling it a fall in silvei, it 
is so astounding that even our gold 
standard friends cannot deiiy 11. ,^'J*'>- 
however, attempi to explain it by declar- 
ing, in the language of ^'^'V'^'^^r vfT?,^"? 
before the Ohio convention last May, that 
"toe enormous increase of the prcjduc- | 
lion ofsilver in the United States Mex- 
ico and Australia, has disturbed '.hia 
ratio and has lowered the market value 
of silver." When a man of so inuch ex-- 
perience and of such conceded special 
ability in finance makes a natement so 
uttei-ly groundless, it is difficult to know 
how to Characterize it. The very natut;al 
conclusion that it was a cleliberaie mis- 
statement seems improbable because the 
facts are so easily accessible that nobody 
could expecC it to go long unrefuted. l n e

into the marke< and buy an ounce of 
gold for 15.55 ounces of silver: and that 
from 1S2«» to 1872 while production osii- 
lated as we have seen, and while the r.-l- 
ative number of tons of silver In the

the market price remained closely by the

that day to this nearer equal than at

the bulk of the world's stock of silver

ihe old mint and market ratio, namely 
elKhteen and six-tenths to sixteen ami 
oife-tenth tons of silver to one ton of 
gold, yet the market price of sdver as 
measured In gold has constantly fallen 
until last December you ^ could have 
bought for one ounce of gold thirty-four 
ounces of silver. No man can look that

the "enormous overproduction of silver

parison is made through a system of 
"ineJex numbers;" thus, the price of each 
commodity chosen is averaged for a cer- 
tain number of years, and that average 
is called l'»0. If, as is done by the Lon-

Thus, while gold as measured In silver 
rose in China between 1«73 and ISW nearly 
iV» per cent, i-ommodities as measured in 
silver fell about 10 per cent. In other 
words silver and commo<litles kept to- 
gether and gold rose. Similarly, the royal 
commission declared in 1H.V( that the pur- 
chasing i>ower of silver in India had not 

tallen. , . . , , 

The results of an appreciatinfe standard 
are so hitlden in the very processes of or- 
dinary business that until we stop to look 
car^-fullv for them we are not aware how 
serious. "nay how fatal, they may become. 
Our time will permit only a few illustra- 
tions. Between 1874 and 1S.S.-, gold appreci- 
ated so that the holders of the public debt 
of Kngland could buy in the latter year 
£liKi,"iii(i,(j»«j worth more of all commodities 
on the average with the principal of the 
df-bt as it was in 1S74 than they could 
have bought with it in l'<74. In other 
words, ihe property and industry of Eng- 
land were- robbfd of $l.»n)"i.o«X).ono in eleven 
years and a present made of It to the 
holders of her bonds. 

The I'nited States paid off about $7:jO,- 
aiO.'Wt of her debt between 1S70 and 1)<X4. 
Vet if we reckon It in the eight commodi- 
ties, beef, corn, wheat, oats, pork, cotton, 
coal, and bar iron, the debt was nearly 
50 per cent larger afterwards than be- 

In ISfifi we could have paid the national 
debt ol this country with H.tHW.OOO bales 
of cotton. In 1H94 it would have taken 51.- 
iXjd.tnifi bales to pay what remaintd due al- 
though meantime we had paid ^J.<»0<t,Oi)«i 
bal»*s on it in principal ami interest. In 
vm we could have paid It with 
bushels of wheat. Last fall wo still owed 
2.<j<i<).ij*iO.'J<JO bushels after paying S.OOO.OWJ,- 
•)•«> bushels In principal and interest. 

The burden of the goUl standard on the 
world could be fully measured oaly in 
blood and sweat and t»-ar.s. 

Any convenient medium of exchange to 
which prices had once accommodated 
themselves would discharge sufflciently 
well the mere function of a medium of 
exchange. But when viewed as a measure 
of the values of all other things it is of 
the very greatest im;>ortance that the 
money unit remain as nearly unvary- 
ing as possible in value over long periods 
of time . When a man loans another a 
sum of money he loans a certain quantity 
of purchasing power, for that is what 
money Is. Now absolute Justice would 
require that when the loans is repaid it 
should stand for the same purchasing 
power as l>efore. But if meantime money 
has depreciated, that is if prices have 
risen, the same nominal sum when re- 
paUl has purchasing power than when 
ijjjrrowed and the lender or cre<litor really 
recfives less than he loaned, the borrowf-r 
or d»-btor protiting by thn difference. On 
the other hand if money in purchas- 
ing power betv/een the making of the 
loan and the repayment, so that the bor- 
rower has to find more commodities with 
which to buv the money to pay back than 
the money would buy for him when he bor- 
rowed it. then he loses the difference and 
the money lender makes It. Now In either 
case the changing standard takes some- 
thing trom one man without his deserving 
I.) lose- it and gives It to another who has 
no right to it. In either case it is a silent 
robbery. The i<leal stamlard would pre- 
serve "the rights of l»oth debtors and 
creditors. But if a deliberate choice had 
to be made hnetween a gradually falling 
and a gradually rising standard, all writ- 
ers of authority agree, and it is con.son- 
ant with common sense, that morally, 
economically, politically and socially the 
falling standard would b*- preferable. Its 
inevitable lo.sses fall on the creditor, the 
lender, who can better than the debtor 
endure Its effect-s, and It encourages en- 
terprise; while the certain hardships of the 
rising standard fall on the borrower, the

stantly and remorselessly measuring off 
increasing eqiiivalencit-s in all human pro- 
ducts, rnder such circumstances there 
is no Inilucement to ent«-rprise or to in- 
vestment in producing Industries. No man 
wants to borrow money to use In a busi- 
ness in which the fall of prices is sure to 
eat up his profits, on tlie other hand the 
man with money for the same reason does 
not want to imt it into business but pre- 
f«'rs either to invest it In gilt-edge securi- 
ties or to let It He idle and grow. This 
i-ollecls the money in the large tinancial 
centers and emphasizes the absolute 
power of the money-lender who must be 
sought In his lair and who can make his 
own terms with borrowers. It Is a luid 
symptom when "l.reeding" money, to use 
Shylock's phrase, is regarded as better 
business |>olicy than embarking it In |>ro- 
ductive Industry. 

Fellow citizens, a profound social ques- 
tion underlies this great matter. Our 
vicious money standard is an important 
cause, among others, of the too prevalent 
opinion of the limitless influence' of 
wealth; of that breathless, conscienceless 
and almost insane pursuit of money as a 
nu-ans of stdtish peiwer or Itriitish imiiil- 
gence; of that worship of moiu'y for its 
own vile sake; of those itiniimerable 
scheme's for acquiring and using e-omtiina- 
tions of Wealth to evade or over-riile the 
laws, which occasion so many of the 
alarming social and in<lustrial collisions 
that characterize our time and cause the 
gravest concern for our institutions; of 
combinations of capital in "trusts" for 
tlie purjiose of resisting the- fall of prices, 
and combinations of workingmen to re-sist 
the tendency of wages to follow the fall 
of the products of labor. Adequate scholar- 
ship has establlshe'd that the de-cay of the 
power and civilization of the Roman e-m- 
plre was more largely due to the insidi- 
ous and frightful effe<'ts of an appreciat- 
ing money standard than to any e>thei- 
e'ause. A similar result could scarcely 
follow the same in our country to- 
day, but the alternative to a timely, 
lawful, prudent anel honest solution of 
the difficulty is even more terrible to 
contemplate. We bimetalllsts are the- true 
conservatives anel the re'al frlenels of the 
peace of the Repuidic. We desire justice 
to l>e done by the orderly procedure of tlie 
laws, and so speedily that there shall In- 
no elanger of an appeal to anything beyond 
the laws, an excess In which laws' ami 
justice might perish together. 

The effects of the appreciation of gold 
might readily have been forse-en by m»'n 
who understood the science of money ami 
the teaching.s of history. Tlier*' we're such, 
and some- of them have> left on recorcl 
tlieir forebodings. Many years ago, before' 
the nations had l»ecome crazed by the 
misunderstood example of Englane'i and 
had not so generall.v gone to work to suit- 
due the world to a mone.v bondage-. 
Jevons wrote as follows: "1 am far from 
denying that if the Italian government 
dee'ide to carry into effect M. Luzzatti's 
thre'at of buying gold at all hazards, and 
if the like course be taken liy the Fnlted 
States anel France, not to speak of Ger- 
many, there might Ik- conslde-rable dis- 
turbance of values for the time-. But Is ij 
likely that such proceedings will l>e taken 
by rational statesmen and rational parlia- 
ments? It Is really too absurd to suppose- 
that any country will insist upon liaving 
a gold currency at any cost." Alas! for 
tile falliiiilit.v ■ of genius. Even .levoiis 
could not forsee that .so many parliaments 
would prove irrational and that great 
countries shoulH be so smitten of the gold 
standard he advocated as to pay their 
life-blood for It. 

No prophecy of economic effects from 
oi^served causes, however, has proliably 
e-ver been made so iinie|Ue' and startling 
ill its insight and accuracy as that of 
Ernest Seyd. the famous bimetallist, who 
in 1X71 wrote: "It is a great mistake to that the adoption f>f the gold 
valuation by other state-s besides England 
will be beneficial. It will only lead to the 
de-structlon of the monetary equilibrium 
hitherto existing, and cause' a fall in the 
value of silver, from which England's 
trade and the Indian silver valuation will 
suffer more than all other interests, griev- 
ous as the geiie'ral <lecline of rtrosperily 
all over the worlel will be. The strong 
dcK'trinism existing in England as re- 
gards the golel valuation is so Idind, that 
when the time of depression sets In there- 
will be this special feature: the «'<-onomi- 
cal authorities of the e-ountry will refuse 
to listen te) the cause here' foreshadowed: 
every possible atempt wlM be- made tei 
prove that the- elecline of <-ommerct- Is du'i 
to all sorts of causes and irreconcilable 
nuitters. The workman and liis strikes 
will be the first (-onvenient target: then 
speculation and overtrading will have 
their turn. Later on, when foreign na- 
tions, unable to pay In silver, have re- 
course to protection, when a number of 
other secondary causes dev<-lop them- 
selves, then man.v woul<I-be wise' men will 
have the' opportunity of point- 
ing to specilic reasons 
which in their eyes account for the fall- 
ing off in every branch of trade. Many 
other allegations will be made, totally 
Irrelevant to the main issue, but satis- 
factory to the moralizing teiulenc.v of 
hnanclal writers. Th»' great danger of 
the time will then be that among all this 
confusion and strife England's supremacy 
in commerce anil manufactures may go 
Ijackwards to an exte-nt which cannot be 
re'elre'Ssed when the real cause becomes 
recognized and the natural remedy Is ap-

at all, anel they go right on manufactur-

Irreconcilable arguments in behalf of the- 
gold standard as cheerfully and innoe-ent- 
ly as you please. For example, the St. 
Paul Pioneer Press, commenting on my 
answer to its Inquiry is to where I stood 
on the coinage question, was guilty of 
.saying, on the same day and in the same 
column, that "the appreciation of gold

it Is conceivable thai all preidiicers in 
one line of business might do so at the

tion might exist in that line. But It is 
impossilile that all prodiu-ers in all lines 
should produce an exi-i-ss of everything 
at once. When such appe»ars to be the 
i-ase It Is bee-aUBc there is some fault In 
Die exdiaiige function, in that branch of 
political economy wliii-h concerns tin- 
distribution of prodii. is to consumers. 
The world never yet produced more than 
it could consume, and it never will. So

ren are hungry. Insiillicieiitly clad and 
uncomfortably housed, and "millions of 
others deny tlu-nise'lv.-,s rational enjoy-

an overproduction of fooil, raiment and

Is under-production in.siead. It is always 
characterized, moreover, by falling prices, 
which Invariably mean money that Is 
hard to get. The theor.s of overproduction 
is iioth an e'conomic absurdity and a 
moral inonstrosity. It is a lit companion- 
|)ie'ce to the single gold standard.

eff»-ct and that of improvements on the

significance for agriculture which the de- 
vices that came in from 18.')0 to 1873 had. 
To this perloel also belongs the beginning 
of se-ientltic agriculture and the use of 
imported and manufactured fertilizers

whene-ver it operates from a silver 
standard nation, where home prices have 
not fallen, must inevitably compel the 
producer, as is now elone in the case eif 
our wheat and cotton staples, to take in 
gold su(-h a price as will buy enough sil- 
ver in the gold market (where silver has 
fallen more than half) to imrcha.'^e tiie

where silver has lemained practically 
unchanged. Many of tlic prices quofi-d 
by these gentlemen on corn, oats und 
hogs are' wholly unreliable, but it is not 
m-cessary to spend lime to correct them. 
We need only to be reminded that t he- 
commercial importance of all these pro- 
ducts is of recent creation; that excep- 
tional circumstances have stimulated di'- 
mand. and that their producer has wholly 
lae-ked foreign competition. Aside from 
the of oats as fe-ed for hors«-s. It has 
been a litful ami irregular crop, and its 
use as a human feiod product, for which 
enormous quantities are now required, is 
of recent and growing demand. Hogs, 
in the increasing .scarcity of cattle, have 
be-en lately coming into large vogue as 
food, both here and in Europe; and the 
.American .supjily has a practical monop- 
olv of the trade. Corn, until within a 
fe-'w vears. has hardly been an article of 
export Only (]'i"«t",000 Vniiihels went

ed (■►-., (KN),iMH) liushels. and we mee-t no com- 
petitor in the Euroin-an market. 

.Millions of bushels of corn are now con- 
sumed in various iirocesse^s where not 
long ago practically very little was used: 
fe>r example, in the manufacture of 
wines, sTiirils, starch and glucose, 
whatever the temporary and accidentalad- 
vantage cnjove'd by one. two or three 
commfidltles, the law of final conforma- 
tion to the uniform principle of the gold 
standard Is as ab.solute as any proe-e-ss 
of nature. Like the torture be-tl of Pro- 
crustes, whatever lies on It must be cut 
to it.s measure. 

But the gold philosopher has one final 
re.sort. I>efeate<l at eve-ry other point, he 
.seeks to turn the flank of his foe^ Com- 
pelled to witness the demolition of every 
barrier behind which his gold standard 
has entrenched itself, he solemnly an 
nounce-s that we have been fighting shad- 
ows all this while; that gold is not the 
measure of values at all; that labor Is 
the basis of all value and the only true 
measure of it. It is almost amusing to 
see with what unction this declaration Is 
made. The shrinkage of profits and the 
decay of enterprise-, which are so charac- 
teristic of the continued action of 
gold standard, involve so certaiiily 
final ruin of the man who can find 
only where other men make profits, that 
the gold apologist Is always conscious oi 
being a little at a disadvantage when ad- 
dressing a laboring man. \V hen, there- 
fore, he draws forth his "human toil 
unit, it Is with an air of infinite satisfac- 
tion. But there are certain dlfllcultles In 
the acceptance of this new unit. In the 
first place It happens that the law makes 
the unit to consist of 23.2 grams of flno 
gold, called a "dollar." So the labor 
unit " would involve an aliandonment of 
the gold standard by act of congress, and 
that Is precisely what these very people 
don't propose to allow. In the next 



propose .. , „ 

place, how would you define the new 
unit? Shall you say that the labor unit 
shall consist of the value of a day » work? 
If so, what kind eif work? For dllTerent 
kinds of work cannot be of the same 
value And then, bv what sort of a man 
must this iiartlcular kind of work be done- 
in order to e-onstitute- it the measure of 
toil In general and of all other values? 
.Mr-n differ in skill, strength and efficiency. 
The same man varies at different t mes 
in all ihef-e respects; Just what condition 
Fhall the law prescribe that he shall be 
in when he goes out to set the pace for 
the values of the universe? In short, 
feliow citizens, the "labor unit" Is a bar- 
ren Ideality. You cannot define It. You 
cannot think It. There is and can be no 
such thing. It Is pure fustian rhetoric 
with which a cause that is the enemy of 
all labor sveks to disguise its true charac- 


Again: l( Is universally agr»-ed that 
the iM-rfect metueiire of values would be a 
cliuiigeless one; and thai lis a practical 
fact the world ought lo i-hi> a stand- 
ard that approaches that ideal as nearly 
as possible. itiit what friend of labor 
will consent that the unit of labor sluill 
be Iri-evoi-ably lixed. Its value lied to 
prt\'-Tetit conditions and doomed elernall.v 
til bear Its exlHtlng rcliillons to all other 
things? No; tin- law of social progress 
Is one that assures lo labeir a eoiistanlly 
im-reasing incienieiit in the results of 
Improved processes of production. Tin- 
lot of labor Is to bo a happy one. The 
British doctrine, that taught by Ils writ- 
ers on eeonomle-s. is that tlie workiiigman 
is doomed to an iilliinate condition of 
pra(-tical servitude, where wages shall i>o 
only enough to supply his body with the 
physical energy exhausted by toll. The 
Anu-rlcan i-n-ed is that no self govern- 
ment is possible, that In the end. Indeed, 
no government is desiralile. except il be> 
predicated upon the maliitenaiu'e of con- 
ditions enaliling labor to receive a sur- 
plus above necessities and thus, by prud- 
ence, sobriety and application, to par- 
ticipate in and i-ontribute to the progress, 
liappiness and glory of civilization. Com- 
binations of organized labor ma.v l)e able 
for a time', has been done in tliis coun-' 
try, to keep wages from falling as they 
tend to do; though even then the losses 
due to lack of employment and redm-e-fl 
hours amount tei a very large sum 
which re-ally reduces the nominal wages 
re-celved. Wage statistics that do not 
show how Utile work a man has are 
valueless. It would be better for the 
idumbers in ttiis town lo work for $12 a. 
Week ami be constantl.v busy than for 
%\JM a day and gel employment onlv two 
or three days a week. The common la- 
bor(-r.s in one of the wards of Dulutli 
whose ave-ragf' employm<-nt, as I am 
fold by a census agent, has bee-n alKiut six 
we'eks during the past yi-ar, would be 
glad of lower wages but more work. 
And so with the brieklay<-rs and stone- 
masonsi average was three or 
four months. 

When a laboringman owe's a debt he 
should !♦ able to pay it with the same 
value of labor that he borrowed, not tlie 
same amount of labor. If his lalior grow^< 
in e-tflclency he. ,and iieit Ills creditor 
should receive- tlie^ benefit of it. The la- 
lioringman's interests are preclsel.v the 
same as the manufae-turer's, the trades- 
man's and the farmer's. In this resi)ecl. 
And the policy that is sure to wreck all 
e-mployt-rs In productive industr.v. If con- 
tinued, cannot fail to ruin also the men 
who work for them. Profits cannot dis- 
appear and leave wagea untouched. When 
men that hire labor become bankrupt the 
man who works Is very apt to be out of 
a job. The voluminous evidence gatli- 
ered by the English parliamentary com- 
mlf^slon on the liepresslon of trade and 
Indu.stry. shows conclusively that wages 
In England have been long falling Jtnd 
continue to fall. In the I'nited States 
v.'irlous conditions have prevented the 
full operation of the same cause as yet. 
but many of Its effects are already visi- 
ble, and the ultimate result, is clearly 
foreseen by intelligent laboring men all 
over the counlr.v. Their attitude is not 
uncertain. They are and will be for a 
money system that Is favorable to indus- 
try and that deals justly between man 
and man. 

But fe-llow citizens, it is time we should 
inquire what the remenly is fejr the evils 
we- have been consJdering. l'n<iue*stion- 
ably it lies in the restoration of bimetal- 
lism. Wliat is bimetallism? The et.vo- 
mology of the word Is two-metallism, 
anil it means the equal tre^atment of both 
gold and silver in a money system. It 
means that both are to be standard or 
primary money. It means that neitlu-r 
is to be redeemeel In the other. It means 
that the mints are to be op«-n to the free 
and unlimited coinage of both and tliat 
a debtor shall have his ojitlon to pay his 
debt in whichever metal he pleases. I 
challenge anyliody anywhere lo produce 
a definition of bimeiallism made before 
ISiKi by a reputalile authority that coii- 
llicls with this definition. I am e-mphatic 
about this because an attempt is making 
to hoodwink the people of the I'lilted 
States on this subje-e-t. All political par- 
lies in this country are on record un- 
equivocally In favor ejf bim<-talllsm, and 
the shrewdest schemers among the geild 
monometalllsls see clearly that they i-aii 
only hope to win by making the people 
tliiiik that Ijimelallism is any system 
where both gold and silver are "used." 
without re-ferenc<- to how they are usc-d: 
that bimetallism prevails in the Pnlted 
States now, and that it is we who pro- 
|H)se to interfere with it. John Sherman, 
the St. Paul Pioneer Press ami the Min- 
neapolis Tribune claim that we now have 
lilmetallism in the T'liited States. Tiie 
statement is false anl is Jcnown to be 
false by those who make it! I say this 
e-almly and deliberately. Ignorance' is the 
t)iil.v escape for tiiem. and none of them, 
unless it be the Tribune, can pleail that. 
It is, however, barely possible that old 
age might let the other two out. When 
challenged to produce an.v definition of bi- 
metallism consistent with its claim, the 
Tribune cite-d the Century Dictionary, 
and did not know enough to know that 
the definition there given Is wholly at 
war with its own. The Century's deliiii- 
t.ioii is: "The use of two metals as irtoney 
at relative values set by le-glslative 
f-nae-tm«-nt." Tlie words "relative value" 
show (onclusively that the author had no 
thought of a redeemable metal. The ref- 
erence is unquestionably to the ratio be- 
tween two metals for c-oiiiage into pri- 
mary money. The new ielea had not l»eeii 
borii when this definition was written. 
But there Is no use in splitting hairs tin 
thix matter. It is pe-rfectly clear what 
moiu-tary writers understand by bi- 
metallisin. .Mr. Muhleman, in his ".Mon- 
etary Systems of tlu' World," p. 12. says: 
"By bimetallism, strictly defined, is 
meant the free and unlimited coinage of 
both gold and silver Into coins of full 
debt-paying power." But the Tribune 
.said .Muhleman's book was not printed 
when the national conventions declan d 
for bimetallism: Let us then see what 
opinion was previously. The royal com- 
mission appointed in 188(; by Queen Vic- 
toria to inquire into the causers of .the 
recent changes in the values of tlie 
pre'cious ni«-tals, reported in 1888 and the 
ri'iiort was jiubllshed by our government 
In 188<.i. 1 quote from p. nil of that report, 
section 116: "A iiimetallic system of cur- 
rency, to be completely effective, must, 
in the view of those who advocate it. 
include two essential features: (a) An 
open mint ready to e'oin any quantity of 
either gold or silver which may be 
brought to it. (b) The right on the i>art 
of a debtor to discharge his liabilities at 
his option, in either of the two metals at 
a ratio lixed by law." There is not the 
slightest question that this has always 
been the understanding of the term. In- 
deed, the Pioneer Press, after having, in 
an editorial called "fieiiiiine Bimetallism." 
on .May 12 last, endorsed John Sherman's 
alisurd definition of bimetallism, in a 
sublime disregard of consistency holds 
this language on July 23: "Bimetallism 
in its specific sense, • * • means, and 
by all the re-cognlzed authorities on the 
siibject Is always held to mean, simply 
a double standard, tliat lioth gold and sil- 
ver coins, posseffllng an unlimited debt- 
paying i>ower, shall be freely coined at 
such a fixed ratio as will enable them to 
be maintained permanently at par." 
Men who have real and honest convle-- 
tions do not hesitate to avow them, and 
to seek a line of clear demarcation be- 
tween themselves and those who differ 
from them. All these at-heart gold pa- 
pers ought to come out unequivocably 
for the gold standard. And they will Ije 
forced to do so. As« the discussion waxes 
warm thev will have to line up. The po- 
sition of the New York Evening Post will 
be taken before long by all the gold 
standard papers that have been Imbibing 
its opinions and copying its arguments, 
"rhat grc>at representative of Englanel in 
America says: "There are some people 
(a diminishing number, however), who 
hesitate to avow themselves In favor of 
the single gold standard, although thuy 
are opi>osed to any chango from the pres- 
ent system. There are others (also a 
diminishing numlier), who think that be- 
cause a certain limited number of silver 
dollars are In circulation, we have bi- 
meiallism or the double standard in this 
country. This Is a totally false concep- 
tion, as false as it would be to assume 
tliat we have a paper standard be^cause a 
limiteel number of greenbacks are afloat. 
• * * The 'goldbugs' have no change of 
standard In contemplation. They are sat- 
I'-lied with the present posture of affairs, 
so far as that goes. The •expulsion of 
everything hut gold as real money' tcKik 
plae-e in 1873, and continues unabated. " 

Thus fellow (Itizeiis, the issue is made 
up between those who propose io con- 
tinue on the ever-appreciating gold 
standard, and those who desire to Btop 
that appreciation by removing: silver 
from its subordinate place as a credit or 
token money, taking that much strain off 
from gold, and restoring the white metal 
to Its equal station with gold as standard 
money: thus broadening the basis on 
which creelit may rest, equalizing the va- 
riations in the production of the metals, 
litopplng the rapid fall of prices and the 

automatic im-rease of debts, and les.seii- 
liig tin- fretiuem-y ami severity of money 
panli-s resulting from whal the Pioneer 
Press so llltlngly calls "the mad rush 
for gold."

de-sIre again e-learly to anne)Uii(e that 1 
heipe for the adoption e»f that nu-tliod 
and shall, if oppeirt unity affords, labor to 
my utmost In that direction. The rece-nt 
overwhelming success of the Conservatis e 
party in the l<:iiglisli elections, in whii-li 
bimetallism was pri>miiieiitly brought be- 
fore the ele^i'tors, and the accession to 
jiower of state-snu-n long ideiitilied with 
that cause; the strong position of tln- 
legislative- bodies of (lermany. the well- 
known blinetallii- I'refe'reiii-i-s of the i-m-r- 
getic young emperor, and the nndoiibled 
popular favor enjoyed by the doctrine of 
bimetallism in that «-m|>ire; and the un-

throughout the- world, inspire me with 
what seems a reasonable hope that an 
international conference may assemble

If. however, that hope Is to lu- disap-

favor (-uttiiig the (iurdlan knot, ami that

of .self-government, tin- rle-hesl, strongest 
I'ounlry on iiie face of the earth, shall 
lead the way out from under the tyraiiii>- 
of the single gold standard. I should not 
expect it to be done without some hard- 
ships, though I hope to slutw that there- 
Is good reason tei tliink tlii-ni very much 
e>verestlmate-d by timorous bimetallists: 
while, as for many of the grewsome- pro- 
phecies of till- gold men, they are as 
jiurely creatures of fancy as the nursery 
bogle-man. Our good sense slioulel te-aeii 
us to discount liberally mue-h of the ad- 
vice that is born of obvious self-inter- 
est. Much, indeetl, that for pre-- 
diction is only menace covertly sugge-sted. 
If we are eternally to submit to a con- 
dition demonstrably ct-rtaiii to proeliice 
the ruin of our country, because the men 
who are defending that condition and 
protititlg by it threaten to ruin us a lit- 
tle quicker if we tr.v to escape' it, then 1 
sa.v the worst they can do In spite of us 
Is preferable to a disaster that 'we con- 
nive'- at. ' 

I believe' that any difficulty that we 
should experience as a re-sult of («pening 
our mints to silver, as they are- now open 
to gold, would be of a temporary charac- 
ter and almost wholly iiroduci-d by man- 

What would be our proce-dure? W'e 
should simiily provide that anybod.v might 
bring to tile mints of this government 
23.22 grains of pure gold cjr 371. 'i'l grains 
of pure silver and. wltli the jirope-i- alloy, 
get them coined each into a dollar. In 
other words, that at tin- old ratio of 
about l.-|.!»8 to 1. or, approximately, ir, to I, 
tlie mints will freely coin both gedd and 
silver, stamping a certain weight of guid 
as a dollar or sixteen times that wi'ight 
of silver as a dollar; and that when so 
stamped lioth gold and silver coins shall 
be of equal dignity and power as mone.v, 
all payments of evcr.v sort being made 
in either or liolh of the me-tals at tlie 
eiption of tiic payt-r. And under sucli 
regulations, bimetallists i-laim, tlu- two 
metals will eiri-ulate at practical )>arity 
and will perform the functions of a inon- 
equltable measure of values than gold 
alone. Note this: It is of the esseiii-e 
of the jilaii that the debtor shall have the", 
option in wliie-h metal to make his pa.v- 
nieiit. If one metal tends to rise above 
the other, tei bei^ome scarcer,' the other 
metal will be sought after; the demand, 
therefore-, for the dearer metal l»-ssening. 
Its rise in value will be chei-ked, and tln- 
deniand for the other increasing, its value 
will rise, thus causing the two metals to 
approai-li i-ach other closely and main- 
taining them at practically Ihe-ir coinage 

"But," it is said, "tlie price <if silver in 
the market toda.v is almut ihiity-two 
ounces for one ounce of gold; if the actual 
market value- of silver is one-thirty-sei-- 
ond of gold, how can you make It float 
at om--sixteenth of gold? You e-an't 
legislate value into anything," 

Now nobody contemls that you can 
legislate value into anything; but nobeidy 
of any Intelligence will deny that you 
can b.v legislation largely alter the eir- 
cumstances that regulate supply anel de- 
mand which contreil value. Suppose a 
man had a beautiful lake m-ar a large 
city, and it were splendidly stocked with 
ex(-elleiit lish. It will not be denied that 
he could sell for (|lilte a siilii the right of 
taking fish from tliat lake during the 
suminer months, say from June to Aug- 
ust. But suppose the legislature should

jiretty effectually have legislated the val- 
ue out of his fishing privlle-ge for .liim ui

You cannot le-glslate valut-, but .\ou <-aii

metallists and an- loudly denoum-ing thc 
attetnpt to "legislate value" iiite> silver. 
How ofte'u have 1 heard free-traders <1«^- 
e-ry protection ami say, "why, you can't 
make wages high by legislation; you 
(-an't affe-ct prices by legislation; you 
can't h'gislate value into a man's busi- 
ness. It's jireposterous. All such things 
are regulated by the great law id" supply 
and demand." -Xnd with what satisfae- 
tioii these protectionists have answt-red; 
"We' don't tr.v to legislate value- Into a 
man's business. We simply make it hard- 
(-r for the fore'lgn*»r to disiuite this market 
with him. Then there is an increased de-- 
mand for his geiods. He be<-omes a bidder 
for labor and wages rise. These efTi-i-ts 
are produced by the operation of the law 
upon demand and supply whleh are the 
arbiters of Value." Now why cannot 
these men see the force- of the argume'iit 
that legislation may affe-ct the price e«f 
silver by enlarging the de-inaiid for It and 
Its opv>ortuiiities for employment '.■ In 
1S73 aiul since, the worUI reduced and has 
been re-duclng the opportunities of silve-r, 
lessening its demand by frightful de-i-re- 
ments. The result has be-en of course a 
fall in Its value as measiin-d in gold. We 
simply wish to restore the <lemanel. We 
want to oiieii the lish jiond ami r<-storc- 
the fishing privilege-. 

The question fairly stated beconn-s this: 
Can the Inlted States with sm-h c-o- 
I operation as silver-using count rh-s af- 
' ford, make such a demand lor silver, glvc- 
it such opportunities of employm<-nt. as 
will maintain it at par with gold? .My 
answer Is. there are the best of reasons 
to think It can. 

I do not quite agree with the position 
of some bimetallists. if 1 rightly under- 
stand them, when th<-y si>eak of the "un- 
limited demand" i aiised by the open mint. 
The mint does not buy gold or silver. 1 1 
merely stamps It. It would put the sann- 
stamp on a given quantity of goUl and on 
sixteen times that quantity of silver. 
Whether the two coins iliereafte-r cir- 
culated at that stamp value- would de- 
pend on the demand that could be mad<< 
for them at that ratio in paying d.-lus 
and doing business. Supiiosi- tin- mint 
open. Would a man having silver lake 
It to the mint unless he afterwards could 
make use of it? And If he could use It a|| 
a certain value, would It not be worth that 
much? And If such use could be found 
for all the silver that could be spared 
for the mint, would any man take less 

for Ills sllve-r 
when HO used? 

.Now, as We have seen, there is a de- 
mand in the world for a larp- aiUlitlonal 
amount of priiiiar.v nioiiev. The eiieiriiious

W*ashlnprt'>ii. Aug. 16.— The impression 
prt-vails in »>oth the state and navy d€^ 
partments that th*- revolution in Ecua- 
dor will be quite a serious affair before 
the internal troubles there are settled. 
No advices havf bettn received concern- 
ing recent engagements. The state de- 
partment has received from Minister at Quito, a dispatch, dated 
July 20. which shows what the situation 
was then. In >t Minister Tillman says 
that there are no Indications of an eerly 
settlcm«'nt of the complicated political 
conditions of the countr>'. 

Alfaro. who reached Guayquil on 
June 12 or Iff. was still there with an 
armed force, amounting, as claimed by 
his friends, to 4000 or 5fX>f» men. The 
government force a» Quit') was esii- at 2000. which it was thought 
miurit be increaiw-d to 40«lO. The plateau 
iK-twet-n the western and eastf-m ranges 
of mountains was ronlrolled at the tim<- 
of Mr. Tillman's writing by the small 
army of the conservatives. fJen. S.Tr- 
a.«ijtt-. with I'WtO men. wa.« at Guaranda. 
IW miles northwest of Quito, near the 
main iv)ad to fJuayanfjuil. The govern- 
ment forces had capturt^i fifty or sixty 
men from the north of Quito, who. in 
company with 200 others, were trying to 
pass to the south. 

Bishop Shumacher, of Port Ivojo. with 
3.>0 men. was expected to arrive at Quito 
July 2"i. There was to be a prf>cession in 
his honor and he was to be crowned by 
the archbishop with laurels and wreaths 
of flowers. It seems that he had do- 
nated a few hundred of the followers of 
Alfaro. Alfaro s plans and his strength 
werf» not definitely known at Quito when 
Mr Tillman wrote, bul he says that It 
wa* admitted on all sides that his ad- 
vance to the capital a few weeks before 
would havf been easy. 

Mr. Tillman adds that the strangest 
fe<ature of the revolution is that, with 
the exception of a few officers or lead- 
ers, the armies are composed of the 
poorest of the population and that well 
dressed men take their daily walks and 
throng the plazas unmolested and seem- 
ingly wholly disintf-rested as to the re-

Agent Teter make« th« following np<>rt 
to the commissioner of Indian affairs: 
"Certain Indlane state they will g<- 
to Jack.Hon H<de for the pun>of«- of 
hunting as sorm as the haying seasrin 
is over, claiming they will starve dur- 
ing the c^tming winter if they do not 
kill game at thi.s season ff«r winter 
subsistence, and that they have a 
ri^ht to hunt in Jackson Hole. In 
my opinion it is absolutely necessar>' 
to keei> th»- Indian.*-- in the reservation. 

"Even if they are justifie<J in going 
t<» Jackson Hoi.-, they seem d^^termined 
t<» have revenge on the settlers, and 
will go prei)arf<l for that purpf«e. and 
are discussing plans t<> that end. The 
in-st s^^lution I can prewnt is t<» enter 
into the contract for the big ditch on 
the reservation a> soon af! jK^ssiidt-, 
which will give the Indian.'* employ- 
ment and an opp^^rtunity to earn 
mf>ney with which to provide for them- 
selves through the winters. Th- In- 
dians must be given emplf»ym«-tit or in- 
rreai*ed rati^>n-« as they cann<^>t subsist 
without food obtained In hunting." 


Two Yachts Run Aground on 
Light Wind. 

Ryde. Isle of Wight, Aug. 1ft.— Tht 
annual rac*- around the Isle of Wight, 
under the au-'^pices of the Royal Vic- 
toria Yacht club, fur th. Commodore's 
cup, for two class€«. on* exceeding and 
one not exceeding seventy rating, the 
second prize. £40. to go to a yacht in 
different class than th winner, was 
.sailed today. The Ailsa tlie Britannia, 
the Hester, the Carina, ih<- forty rater, 
the Istdde, the Caress, ti,.- Corsair, the 
Niagara, and the twenty rater, the 
Isolde, started. 

The larger yachts Wire noon away 
aheatl of their smaller competitors. The 
Niagara, srKin after starting, groundeil 
on a sand bank and iissisiance was sent 
t(» her as the tide was r.'<-eding. The 
Niagara remaim-d agr< ind for about 
half an hour, after vhich she was 
floated and returned to l.'-r anchorage. 
It is not thought she ha-s sustained 
:iny dama.ges of a serlou- nature. Capt. 
iiarr said the Niagara v. .i.< not injured. 
She was to windward ar 1 leading when 
she struck a hard bunn'. Her Ixtom 
was swung over and . -rything pos-

championship in doubles at Newport 
next week. attract«-<l a large crowd to 
the Casino grounds this forenoon. 

In the tirst set Sam Neel played good 
tenniF. but his bn-ther was rather 
weak and the set went to Wrenn and 
f^has'- — fi-4. In the s^-cond s^^t. Carl L. 
Neel was evidently very much affected 
by the heat and his playing was de- 
eid»-dly ragged. Wrenn and Chase took 
the set 6-4. 

After a rest Carl Neel came on the 
court in much better form and the 
plaving of the brothers in the next set 
was much stronger and their oppon- 
ents were unable to get even a game 
and Neel I>rothers won. 6-0. The fourth

St. Paul, Aug. 16.— The belief that th<! 
Northern Pacilic-On-at Northern con- 
solidation is a dead issue continues, 
says the Dfcspatch. A well-known rall- 
r(>ader said this morning: 

"I don't think that the deal will go 
through, because the guarante*- put up 
by J. J. Hill Is merely a case of guar- 
anteeing a cinch. H«- guarantees no 
more tlian the Northern Pacific is now 
earning, nor as much. If 1 rememt)er 
arigint. and those Deuts<-he bank people 
are t<K> cunning to allow him to take 
the projierty un<ier such circumstances 
when there is 'nothing more than that 
in it for them. You can bank on it 
that the deal will never go thrrmgh. 

"T. F. <")a.kes Is qu.rted as saying 
that the Northern Pacific should not be 
taken out of the hands of n-ceivers for I 
another year yet. when its nest earnings 1 
will b«- at least $S.WKt.O<»0. They are now | 
$5.2(X».(KX), and Mr. (»akes Ls confident 
that the next fiscal y<»ar will show the 
former figuivs. That, however, will 
not interfere with any plan of reorgani- 
zation, as he) is in no hurr>. So long as 
Brayton Ives or J. J. Hill does not get 
the praj>erty. he will be satislied.

Ixndon, Aug. 16. — A question of great j 
interest to Canada was asked In the 
hous«' of commons today by Mr. Price,

am-arr* tha/t the present exclusion of 
Canadian cattle haxl caused and was 
causing sevene lo«*s in s<»me <*t the a^rrl- 
'•ultural distrtcts. and whether the n--

The president of the i)oard of am^-

that as late as July 10 cases of cattle 
sufT'Ting from pleun> pneumonia had 
been found among the cargr»es cominp 
from Cana/da. and the government in 
ix>nsef)uence must maintain the restrir-

New fork. Aug. 16.— The World says; 
The NovedaiK'sujan. organ of the Span- 
Is^ Bovernmont, makes the offleial an- 
nouneemont from Madrid, that Spain 
will haye 136,272 soldiers under arms in 
Cuba by Sept. 5. This t»>tal includes the 
-.'j.OOO soldiers to be disi«tched from 
Spain between Au>f. 12 and Sept. 5, on 
fourteen steamships of the Spanish 
trans-Atlantle line chartered for that 

When these reinforcements are re- 
ceived there will be 16.000 and SO.(XK) 
volunteers. The reKulars are classittetl 
as follows: 59.900 infantry, 376 cavalrj-,

Captain, Crew and Passen-

For Four Hours. 

New York, Aug. 16. — Advices from 
iJarbadoes, under da»te of July 29. state 
that breaches of international law. like 
filibustering expeditions, seem to be on 
the increase in the Caribbean sea, the 
latest, as well as the one likely to at- 
tract considerable attention, is the firing 
upon a British schooner in British 
waters by a Venezuelan grun boat. 

The schooner Ellen, which is owned 

and sailed by Truxilla, a Britisher, and 

xeifistered at Trinidad, passed under the 

muzzle of a Venezulean gun boat and, 
'though the captain sent the British flag 
to his mizzen mast head, the Venezuel- 
ans ignored it and continued their tiring, 
rending the sails of the British vessel 
In several places, and declined to cease 
firing on the scht>oner until she hove to 
and allowed the gun boat to come along- 

Capt. Truxillo reported as abave to 
the harbormaster at Port Au Spain. He 
was asked to make a sworn declara- 
tion of the facts as stated, which he 
immediately did. The captain explain.s 
that he was on a voyage out from Trin- 
idad to Venezulean port of Magurin. 
and when within two miles of Trinidad 
a Venezulean coast guard cruiser fired 
a shot at him. The flag was sent up, 
but no notice was taken of it. The 
"Venezulean sent a shot through the 
schooner's sails. 

The passengers and crew threw them- 
selves down upon the deck to escape 
shot, which was raking the vessel. He 
was compelled to heave to and the Ven- 
ezulean came alongside. The captain, 
passengers and crew were forced to enter 
a small boat and were kept there for 
nearly four hours, when they were again 
released. In the meantime the Vene- 
zuleans had searched the schooner, find- 
ing nothing to take in her. She was 
alloTved to continue the voyage. The 
Triiiidad officials reported to the colonial 
office at London, and the outcome is 
anxiously awaited. 


Fully Equipped Enroute to Fort 

Chicago, Aug. 16.— Private Herman 
Fritz, a well-appearing young soldier, 
from Fort Hamilton, N. Y., arrived in 
the city Wednesday evening on a bi- 
cycle. He is en route from Fort Hamil- 
ton to Fort Snelling. Minn., bearing a 
dispatch between the commandants of 
the two forts. He is well fitted out 
with baggage, although he carries no 
more than is necessary for his comfort, 
and this is for him. like all soldiers 
who have seen service on the plains, but 

Fritz does not stop at hotels, however, 
but camps out wherever night over- 
takes him. and accordingly carries a 
shelter tent and cooking outfit, which 
greatly increases the weight of his bag- 
gage. Upon such a ride as this, such 
things are unnecessary, but in the time 
of war on in a barren or devastated 
country, hotels and hospitable shelter 
would be hard to find. The trip is being 
made as an experimeilt to discover how 
long it would take for such a trip upon a 
practicable basis. 

It is the first long bicycle trip to be 
undertaken by a soldier of the regular 
army, carrying side arms and equip- 
ments. The times of the record break- 
ers, which have been taken as the basis 
for calculation, cannot be equalled by 
the man who would be called upon for 
courier work in actual service, and this 
ride will furnish valuable data for the 
study of military statisticians. Fritz 
was unfortunate in being seized with an 
attack of indigestion, which delaye<l 
hum for several days in Buffalo. N. Y. 

His mileage is being carefully kept, 
however, and the rider is averaging 
close to 100 miles a da>. He goes to 
Fort Sheridan today, to report to the 
military authorities there, and will con- 
tinue on his journey immediately.
