THE WH11E HOUSE GREATLY CRAJirED
Washington, Dec. 30. "1 want no
compromise. I am for irec coinage of sil
ver at the present ratio first, last and all tbe
Renre sentative Bland, the vctean silver
leader and the Chairman of tbe House Com
mittee on Coinage, was very emphatic when
he delivered himself of these statements
"I want no compromise at all. but if I
could do no better I would probably accept
the old act, provided that the maximum
amount, ?4,tHjJ,000 per month, mentioned
in that measure, was agreed to be coined.
J believe the present law is the best legis
lation we have hail in the interest of silver,
and of course, I uo not want it to be re
pealed." "What do you think of the prospects of
i-ilver legislation at this Congress?"
"I am told that an attempt is to be made
to lepcal or suspend the present law."
"Well, do you think that this attempt
will be successful?"
'2o, I do not I don't think such a
proposition can get through the House. I
think, however, that there is a better chance
for it to pass at this session than there will
be during the next Congress. There are a
cumber of men who bae not been re
elected who may vote independents ot the
wishes of their" constituents, especially as
a Democratic administration will soon be
inaugurated, which is opposed to free
"I am for free coinage, and if I cannot
pet it at this session I shall try to secure it
at tl e next or the earliest possible moment.
The Sherman law is the nearest we have
b?en able to get to that point as yet. It is
proposed to repeal it, hut notbing'is suggest
ed to take its place. If that propo
sition was to be carried silver
vould be at once demonetized,
and when that happens it will not be long
before gold, too, is demonetized. With
fciher demonetized there would be such a
fight for cold among the nations, the high
est bidder getting it, that panics would in
evitably ensue. Then the people of this
country would rise up, take hold of the
Government and give those now trying to
i on it such a lesson in finance as they don't
.ire.im of. The Eastern men who are clam
oi in,; for gold are too greedy, and are
grasping for everything in sight, letting
the future take care of itself. They will
find out their mistake. It is my belief
that the world is drifting rapidly to paper
money. It will reach that point before
long, and I don't know but we will be quite

1i Strict Attention to Business the Osage
Indians Get There.
Washington. Dec. 30. Indian Com
mKsioner Morgan has transmitted to the
Secretary of the Interior a certified copy
of tbe proceedings of the Osage National
Council ol Indians in Oklahoma, in which
the request is made that the accumulated
interest money to the credit of the tribe in
the United States Treasury be paid to them
per capita at once, in order that they may
jiay their debts incurred in building houses,
fencing farms, breaking lands, etc. Under
the pro virions of the act of August 19, 1890,
the Osage are now paid f 90,000 each quarter,
this amount beiugthe interest on their land
fund, minus the snm required for educa
tional purposes and for pay of employes.
Tbe records of the Indian Office show that
there is an accumulated interest fund now
in the Treasury to the credit of the Osages
nmnmiting'to over 800,000, which draws no
interest. In view ot the purposes to which
the ii.oney is to be applied, the Comtnis
Mouer recommends that 300,000 be paid to
l hem at once, in addition to the quarterly
payments. It is believed that the Com
niiFsioner's views coincide with those of tbe
Secretary, and therefore his approval of the
recommendation is expected. It is said at
ihe Indian Office that this tribe, which now
i umbers about 1,500 souls, has nearly
Jfc.flOO.OOO in cash to its credit in the United
fctatts Treasurv, and, in addition, owns
! bout 1,407,000 ceres of land, valued at
least at $5 pr acre, which, according to
numbers, makes the Osages the wealthiest
con niumty ol any race in the world.
ALL IS HARMONY.
No Discord Among the Departments Over
3Iexican Border Matters.
Washington, Dec. 30. General Grant,
Acttug Secretary of War, said to-day that
it is absolutely untrue that there is lack of
liannouy between the Department of Jus
tice and tiio State and War Departments,
uro.ving outot the condition of affairs along
the Mexican frontier. He was corroborated
in this by Secretary Foster and Attorney
General Miller, each ot whom was inter
viewed on the subject. There is, however,
considerable speculation as to the object of
Captain Bourke's recent visit to Washing
ton, and an eflort is being made to give it
undue importance. It is learned to-day
bis mission was btrictly a secret one, and
that its object would be defeated by its be
coming known just at present.
It can, howeer, be stated positivelv"that
Captain Bourke does not carry back to Texas
any instructions regarding tbe plan of cam
paign, and that all orders on that subject
ill continue to be issued through Geueral
"U'heaton, the commanding general of the
Deptrtment f Texas. In lact, that officer
bus already been given general instructions
i i pursue a most vigorous campaign along
l i.e border, and cuaeavor, with the aid of
Hie three additional troops sent him, to
capture or destroy all persons engaged in
the revolutionary movement who are dis
covered violating the international laws.

to work out.

The carlet Fever Quarantine nt the White
TIouso I'laces the President in a Peculiar
Position No Place Convenient for Im
portant Audiences to Be Held.
Washington, Dec. 30. It Is a singular
commentary on American institutions, says
the Star, that the President of the United
States is compelled by stress of circum
stances to conduct the business of his office
in a building the principal part of which is
quarantined by the local health authorities
as a place of danger. This is one of the
evil results of combining the public office
anil the private residence of the Chief Ex
ecutive in the same building.
The President's grandchild is down with
the scarlet fever, and the entire household,
from the President down, are in more or
less nanger from comagiou. The fact that
the patient U isolated in a secluded part of
the mansion of course minimizes the danger,
but does not remove it altogether despite
the extreme sanitary precautions taLen lor
their safety. Fortunately the disease has
been successfully confined to one case so
far, but there is" no certainty that it may
not yet claim another victim among the
many persons irhom existing conditions
compel to remain under the same roof.
Delay in a Presentation.
One of the effects of the present condition
of afiairs at the White Home is to delay the
formal presentation to the President of the
lirazilun Commissioners who are now in
this citv for the purpose of submitting to
his arbitrament' the question in dispute be
tween Brazil and the Argentine Republic
over the Missiones boundary line. They
presented a request to that effect to Secre
tin" John W. Poster yesterday, but at his
suggestion the ceremony has been deterred
for the present on account of sickness in the
It is not altogether improbable that the
President may deem it adi isable to accord
them a preliminary audience at the State
Department or at the residence of the
Secretary ot State, as there is no likelihood
ol the quarantine at the White House being
raised lor tno weeks yet. These presenta
tions usually take place in the Blue parlor,
it being the only good audience chamber in
the building, but the President may waive
all precedents in such matters and receive
the visitors in nis private office. This
much less pretentious apartment, but
answer the purpose as well as the
Still Lost or Missing.
The Argentine Commissioners have not
jet reachea here, so there is no immediate
occasion for the consideration of the main
questions at issue. These gentlemen left

country, but as they are making the trip by
way ot Europe it is supposed they have
been temporarily detained at London, Paris
cr some other foreign capital.
All meetings ot the Cabinet have been
called off lor the preseut. The members,
however, visit the President whenever
necessary. Secretary Bust and Attorney
Geueral Miller made a short visit to the
White House to-day. The President went
out walking in the afternoon with the two
McKee children, for whose safety he is

COTTONSEED IS KINO NOW.
The Production of Its Oil Grown Into a
Great Independent Indnstrr.
New York, Dec. 30. The cottonseed
production ot the South, more particularly
in its relation to the cotton oil output, can
no longer be legardedas a mere side issue
of the cotton crop.
On the contrary, the cotton oil industry
has progressed during the past decade in a
war that renders its condition no problem.
The effect of the diminished cotton crop of
1892 upon the cottonseed oil industry in its
various ramifications, is, therefore, worthy
ot close attention.

TI1E BIG SURPLUS TO BE SHOWN TO-DAY
rSrEClAt. TEL r GRAM TO TOE DISPATClt.1
"Washington, Dec. 30. Treasury offi
cials are somewhat annoyed at the gold
scare, which they say originated in Wall
street for speculative, purposes. In tbe
absence of Secretary Poster all inquiries on
the subject are referred to William P. Mac
Iiennan, chief of the warrant division, who
is tbe financial wizard of the Treasury. Mr.
MacLennan does not share the anxiety of
some of his associates over the financial
situation, and in conversation with the cor
respondent of The Dispatch to-day he
gave quite a rosy vie nr of the condition of
"There seems to be," said Mr. MacLen
nan, "a lack of information among certain
people on the gold question. Every time a
large shipment of gold is announced a cry
goes up that this country is being depleted
of its gold for the benefit of foreign coun
tries. To persons not familiar with the
situation it would appear that these ship
ments of gold simply take that much pre
cious metal or money out of this country,
leaving nothing behind in its stead. That
is a false impression. For every dollar's
worth of gold that leaves this country its
equivalent comes back In the form of mer
chandise, redeemed bonds or some other se
curity. Why Gold Shipments Are Often Larger.
"It sometimes happens that holders of
United States bonds in Europe desire to
exchange them for gold. It also happens
that foreign countries, desiring to increase
their supply of gold, come into the United
States market and buy it. Such transac
tions, instead of causing a commotion in
financial circles, ought to give confidence
in the stability of this Government, for
they show- that we have sufficient gold to
meet our own demands, and can also spare
some for shipment abroad.
"As a matter ot fact," continued Mr.
MacLennan, "there is over 512,000,000 more
gold in the Treasury Department to-day
than there was at certain periods last sum
mer. There is something over 5124,000,000
in gold now on hand, which is but a few
millions les than we had at this time last
year. On the 31st of December, 1891, there
was 5130,000,000 of cold in the Treasury.
One hundred millions of that amount are
held in reserve to guarantee the outstand
ing greenbacks, leaving on hand about 524,
000,000 ot what we call 'tree gold,' because
there is nothing outstanding against it
Thus, you see, that leaves a comfortable
margin for the trade.
"This does not include the 5123,000,000
held in reserve for the outstanding gold cer
tificates. When that is added to the 5124,
000,000 it shows that there is actually $217,
000,000 in gold now in the Treasury."
Foster Didn't Mean to Issue Bonds.
, Mr. MacLennan ridicules tbe statement
tnat secretary .coster proposed to issue a
new series of bonds, but wan prevented
from doing so by the President. The Sec
retary and Mr. MacLennan have a thorough
understanding on all financial questions,
and the latter savs there is no reason why
the Secretary should propose at this time to
put new bonds on the market
With regard to the present condition of
the Treasury, Mr. MacLennan says the debt
statement which will be given nut to-morrow
will show a balance in the Treasury of
something like 5130,328,000. The surplus
would have been much larger at this time
had it not been for the enormous expendi
tures for pensions durinz the present month.
This has been an unusually heavy month
on expenditures in all branches of the serv
ice, and the pension appropriation alone
amounted to 515,000,00a
In spite of the steadv increase in the
revenues from customs and internal revenue
during the past calendar year the surplus
has been kept down by heavy expenditures.
Almost every month during the present year
has shown an increase in the revenues over
the same month in the preceding year.
During the present month the receiptswere
over 53,000,000 more than they were for last
