$83,545,102. The cah balance to-day was
$115,703,715. or $31,518,613 greater than on
The treasury officials are apparently not
alarmed at the continued outflow of gold.
The July interest payments abroad, the
large amount now being required by the
large army of American tourists now mov
ing toward Europe, and possibly the with
drawal of European capital which has not
found satisfactory investment here, are
thought to be 6ome of the causes of the pres
ent demand forgo!d. Previous experience
seems to warrant belief that within a very
short interval the tide will have turned and
the gold flow back again.
There is no lack of gold in the country in
the lest national bank statement, which
shows that on May 4. .1894. the national
banks of the United States held specie to
the amount of $259,941,923, of which over

IcGr gor' Plan a Failure.
Pittsburg. Kan., June 22. The miners'
conference here, which was to have been an
inter&tatc one comprising Kansas, Missouri
and the Indian Territory, proved to be a
Kansas affair entirely. It was gotten up to
cause a suspension of work. T. B. McGreg
or, the Missouri agitator, was on hand and
pulled hard for his object, but it wns defi
nitely settled that thero would be no sus
pension in the district. Tho question of
forming an interstate association was also
discused without result.
This failure on the part of the strike agi
tators will no doubt settle all further hope
of the outside malcontents so far as Kansas
is concerned. Delegates said if it had not
been for letting the strikers know that they
were unalter bly opposed to a strike they
would not have attended the convention.
But two delegates were here from the
Indian Territory and three from Missouri.
Suit Against Officials.
Atchison, June 22. Ethel Phelps, tho
twelve-year old daughter of H. B. Phelps,
is the plaintiff in a $5,000 damage suit
ngainBt Governor Lewelling, the Atchison
police commissioners. Mayor Cloyes, and
the city of Atchisxm, which has been filed.
Tho damage was claimed because it is al
leged that the defendants allowed joints to
run, where the father of tho child bought
drink, and therefore robbed the plaintiff of
tho support she might have otherwise re
ceived. It will be remembered thu tho mother
of the child brought a similar suit a week
ago against the city and county of Atchiaon.
but as the police power of cities of the first
class in Kansas is under tho supervision of
the state instead of the city it would appear
that tho new suit is an attempt to cover a

A Blew at Rothschild.
London, June 23. Senator Teller's pro.

sensation here, where the Rothschilds hava
recently bonded four and a half million
sterling ofionds for the South African dia
Besides these bonds the Rothschilds are
known to be very largely interested in the
stocks of the diamond trust.
Tho proposed high tariff would produce a
great fall in the value of the immense stock
of unsold diamonds on hand, and greatly

stock, which for ysar3 past has been 25 per

health and spirits. He visited the Indian

in the practice of law in Washington, being
associated with ex-Assisiant Secretary of tho
Interior Chandler in the prosecution of In
dian depredation claims before the interior
Mr. Perkins was comparatively a poor
man, but while he had been in business life
he made a number of succe-sful ventures,
and it is believed that he leaves not less than
$50,000 to his family, which is not covered
by will. It is also known that ho has car
ried a heavy life insurance for several years.
He has in the Connecticut Mutual, $14,000;
Massachusetts Mutu.il, $10,030, and in an
other company $10,003 and in a Masonic in

then it would not raise revenue.

KANSAS, SATURDAY, JUNE 30, 1894.
Hill Fighting Income Tax.
Washington, D. C, June 26. Senator
Hill has been fighting the income tax fea
ture of the tariff bill in every practicable
way. He offered amendments by the dozen.
Ono of them was to except the salary of the
president from the tax and used this amend
ment as a text for criticising in a semi
humorous way the action of the finance
committee in exempting the salaries of fed
eral judges. He failed to seo, ho said, why
the salaries of judges should be exempt, and
he thought if compliments were to be paid,
one certainly was duo to the president. Be
sides, the president happened to be a resident
of New York and the tax would fall with an
especially heavy hand on New York.
"I am not authorized to speak for tho
president," Senator Hill said, with a smile,
"in this or any other matter, but this would
be a delicate compliment to one citizen of
New York, and I think tho committee
ought to accept the amendment."
"As Mr. Cleveland is the last democratic
president wc shall ever have from New
York," siid Senator Vest rising to his feet,
"tho appeal is almost irresistible." Laugh
ter. "If you persist in this species of taxa
tion," said Senator Hill turning to him,
"he will be the last democratic president
from any state."

Represantative Tars ley says he has under
stood his brother to be in sympathy with the
miners, although adjutant general, he was
at the head of the state militia and subject
to the orders of Governor aite.

and the miners, and have prevented the dep

to small claimants in Kansas, and about
$8,000 to Missourians. While the provision
for tho payment of the iudpments was nro.
videdforin the bill, it now appears that
there is a disposition on the part of some in
the house to strike it out in the interest of
making a reduced showing at the end of
congress. The chances are that payment
will not be provided for in the pending bill.

Paris, June 27. Ever since the assassina

assassin is an Italian has given rise to the
most dangerously bitter feeling against Italy
and Italians, and several Italian flags dis
played out of sympathy with France's Ios3
and draped with crepe, were hooted at and
in at least ono instance, pulled down and
torn into shreds.
In every quarter of the place fierce demon

But if the feeling against Italians is strong
the sentiment of hatred with which the ma
jority of the people regard anarchists is still
?trongsr, and is growing hourly in intensity.
Santo, the murderer, has boldly asserted
that he is an anarchist, and, therefore, upon
Ihe anarchists are the people pouring their
wrath. Further than asserting that he is an
anarchist, the prisoner has not apparently
made any statement, but it is reported that
the police are convinced that the assassina

Senator Morgan' Views.
Washington, D. C, Juno 27. Senator
Morgan, chairman of the foreign relations
committee, said : "This ia a blow at the
peace and justice and civilization of the
world. France, in her long and eventful
history, has had for leaders more brilliant
men than Carnot greater men, probably, as
the world goes, but the i rench people have
never had a president of broader statesman
like views on all great questions, or one who
made greater sacrifices for he,r prosperity
than he. And in return for his devotion the
French believed in him. He was popular
with all right thinking men and women
throughout the nation, and one whom no
slander had ever injured in their estimation."
Senator Morgan was a member of the
Paris Behring sea arbitration commission,
and in common with, other members was
presented to President Carnot and fcaw quite
a good deal of him while in Paris.

Kincaid News: Mrs. Harry Hurry,
whose horse backed off a bridge at Dia
mond school house, Allen county, was
not bo seriously hurt as was at first sup
posed. She is recovering and has sued
the county for damages. The communi

commissioners to build a new bridge for
over a year, but times were hard and
they were practicing economy ( ?). But
they will now perhaps pay in damages
and costs more than the bridge will cost
and also build the bridge.
Caney Chronicle: "While Fred Good

horse which had run about two and a
half miles with a buggy, which had a

belonged to Perry Allin, and was driven
by Mrs. Allin, who had been to visit Mr.

The Kansas experiment station for
the destruction of chinch bugs is doing
a very large business this year. Chan
cellor Snow reports that the work of
sending out diseased bugs began much
earlier than ever before. A great many
sub-stations have been started in differ
ent counties in the state, which aid ma
terially in the distribution and have
lessened the work of the central station
in a corresponding degree. There are now
being sent out from the central depot
at Lawrence between 100 and 200 pack
ages every day. They go to all parts
of the state as well as to Oklahoma;
Texas Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and
other states. Beports that have come in
show in the majority of cases the infec
tion has worked as well this year as in
the past in killing off the healthy bugs,
and saving largo fields from destruction.
"Wichita, Kans., June 19. A heavy
storm visited this city and county last
evening. The streets in this city were
flooded and in many cases the sidewalks
were obstructed by fallen timbers and
shade trees. The worst part of the storm
centered at Mulvane. twelve miles south.
The cloudburst flooded the entire coun
try, and grain fields, were under water
which soon flooded culverts and drains
and so coveted the Santa Fe railroad
tracks as to put out the fires in the en
gines, holding trains for several hours.
The town part of Mulvane was under
water to a depth of eight or tenvfeet and
many houses were moved off their foun
dations. Boats improvised from wagon
beds and rafts made of lumber were
launched and the work of rescue began.
Probably twenty families were taken
out bv this means. There were no cas
ualties, but the property loss is heavy.
One big wagon bridge was carried out
completely and bumped up against a
second bridge and moved it from, its
foundation. The water subsided rapidly
after doing much damage.

B. F. Smith, the great Lawrence
strawberry grower, finished picking the
1894 crop from his thirteen acres of
plantation. Although the yield was much
shortened by frost and dry weather
nearly 1,000 twenty-four- quart cases
were picked and marketed. The prod
uct was shipped principally to Topeka,
Omaha, Lincoln and Colorado Springs.
Mr. Smith has in his plantation about
100 varieties. Of all these Bobinson
and Parker Earle, both comparatively
new berries, have given the best satis
faction this season. A part of the beds
have been irrigated from the Lawrence
water works' system this year with
marked success. The plan adopted was
simply to lay down the center of the
field on the suface of the ground pipes
tapping the city mains. A hose connect
ed with these pipes at various places by
plugs affords the means of conveying
the water in quantity to any portion of
the field. Mr. Smith estimates that the
increase in the crop due to irrigation
has this year been many times the cost
of the water and its application.

AMONG .KANSAS CHURCH PEOPI.F.
Atchison Champion: A sufficient
amount of money has been raised to pay
off the debt on the first Baptist church,
amounting to something like $4,000.
This money was borrowed to complete
the structure nearly twelve years ago
and has never been paid. The company
holding the mortgage threatened .to
bring foreclosure proceedings and a
great effort was made to save ibe prop
