In the old days the residents of the

The Times went to work on ntw lines

unknown stories of the odd, unusual and

These stories were presented In its Sunday

San Francisco, Sept. 13. Correspond

Owing to the cholera epidemic the catch

coast has been prohibited. This has
greatly grieved the natives. Tho old fish
market has been demolished for-sanltary
reasons. All the crowded tenements en
croaching on the stream are to be de
molished. All the churches were ordered to -be
closed September 1. The Anglican bishop,
Willis, denounced the order as "the most
iniquitous and outrageous abuse of power"
since Papal Interdicts. The next day the
president of the board of health made a
statement of the reasons for the action of
the board and the doctors, sajlng:

ENGLAND DEMANDS REASONS.
An application has been made to the
foreign office by British Commissioner
Hawcs, asking a statement of ll,e reasons
for the arrest and Imprisonment of James
Brown, L. J. Levy, M. C. Bailey, F. IL
Redward, Thomas W. Rawlings, Arthur
McDowell, F. Harrison, C. W. Ashford,
G. C. Kcnyon, and E. B. Thomas during
martial law last January.
These British subjects appealed to their
government for redress of their wrongs
and the legal advisers of the crown have
refused to give a decisive opinion without
reviewing the testimony that may be sub
mitted by this government. The govern

good cause In each case, with evidence of
their complicity In the Insurrection such
as to make their detention necessary to
the public safety. It was not considered
necessary to prosecute to conviction every
person implicated. Many of the above

Fntlsvllle, Pa.. Sept. 13. A Hungarian

In tbe county Jail, has given Information
to tbe authorities charging fellow-countrymen
or his with being banded together for
the purpose of forcing workmen of oilier
natlonaltlcs from employment at the col

mutes Unprecedented Shipments
of the Yellow Metal During -lio
Last Twenty Months.
The announcement that New l'ork banks
had deposited 52,400,000 In gold with
tbe promlso of a considerable addition to
that amount, was quite as much a surprise
at the Treasury Department as the earlier
news of tho withdrawals. This prompt
action of the banks was favorably com
mented on and the feeling of depression
and anxiety that pervaded the department
yesterday morning gave place to one of
Even thoso who, by reason of their long
experience, arc best able to Judge of the
situation, express themselves at a loss
to account for the continued and appar
ently Increasing demands for gold. Never
before In the history of the department, they
contained so inauy contraillctory elements
and never before have the officials been
unable to glvo an lutellipeiit forecast of
what was llk.'y to result from the then
existing conditions. At this time, they
add, everything seems going counter to the

Just prior to the anticipated Increase In
the Internal icvenue tax was about ex
hausted and that the next few weeks would
ux a material Increase In the revenues from
Ihnt source. This increase, however, has
fallen far below expectations, with no im
mediate prospect of an advance. The re
ceipts from customs sources were also con
fidently expected to advance at a rapid
rale. It was argued that the stocks of iner--bandlsc
throughout the country were prac
tically exhausted and that of necessity Im
portations would show a marked Improve
ment. It was predicted also that as the can
ning season approached the sugar importa
tions would ndd materially to the receipts,
and yet none of these expectations has
been fully realized. Though the receipts
from internal revenue and customs show
some Improvement, there is a wide differ
ence between the actual figures and the con
fident expectations of the officials.
Whether the anticipated cotton and grain
shipments will relieve the situation, so far
as gold exporlatlous are concerned, remains
In bo seen. The amount of the exportallons
of gold during the last twenty months Is un
precedented Since January 1 of last year
the gold coin nnd bullion exported from
Hie United States aggregate about $169.-28-1,300
while the Importations during Ihe
period amount to only 548,813,500, which
leaves the excess of exports over imports

Bond Syndicate Makes a Statement
He-girding Its Position.
New York, Sept. 13. In respect to the
gold engaged in this city to-day for ship
ment by to-morrow's steamers, the United
Press is authorized by the bond syndicate
to make tbe following statement: .
"The Impression biu becouic general that
the members of the bond syndicate entered
Into an agreement with the United States
treasury to maintain the $100,000,000 re

that date said obligation will cease and
"Such is not the case. The bond syndi
cate fulfilled all Its obligations to the gov
ernment in June last and has not since been
bound In any way to tho treasury. It Is
true that It has from time to tin; since June
last paid over various sums In gold coin,
to the treasury, which have sufficed to
maintain tho reserve, but it has done so
voluntarily and will continue so to do In
tbe same spirit and for the same motive.
So-Tar as Octobor 1 Is concerned It has
oo relation to the action of the bond ej ndi
cale and It will continue to deposit gold un
til the 1st of November, and the 1st of De
cember, nnd tbe 1st or January, if neces
sary, and if existing conditions make it
feasible to do so. But neither the bond
syndicate nor anyone else can control the

treasury situation .will be any different on
or after October 1, from what they arc now
and have been all along is erroneous and
should be corrected."

The attorney tor Mrs. Frazer is Judge II

recoer the amounts alleged to be due. In
this affidavit Mr. Dexter u stated to have
set up tbe claim that Mrs. Frazer could
not recover f'r the reason coal she had
agreed lo take S1.G00 out of the Mora
claim, when paid, as a seetlemeut of the
