Thepresident to-day presided over a^very important meeting ol the cabinet^which was ^p^'ri:ill.\ railed toconsider finaii.^rial mattere. At this writing nothing utti^rial has been efeea .'lit as to conclusions^arrived at by the p:^^sident: but it is no^violation of roadklence to say that there is^not the slightest cause for alarm over the^financial stains ol the government for the^coming lisca 1 year; there will lie no default^or d^'licit. It is believed that it has been^determined to continue the 4'-_, per cent^bonds, which mature in September at 'J^per cent, and also that the form of treas^^ury statement to be used after.Inly 1 shall^be simplilieil so as to give under the head^of ^available cash^ all moneys that arc^actually available. The present mislead^^ing form is a relic fiomthe ^'levelaud ad^^ministration, which would probably long^ago have been dimmed had not the sudden^and unexpected death of secretary Windoui^occurred. Secretary Foster lias been in^favor of changing it ever since he entered^the anbanea, but there have been Be many^other important things to look after that^it was not until now that time could be^found to eonsidrr the matter wit h the de^^liberation its importance demanded.
SecretaryFoster brought glorious news^from Ohio. He believes that the euthusi^asm ov. r Mckinley's nomination will re^^sult in electing him by the largest majority^that ohi.. has given for years. He believes^also that I he legisla t are will be Republican.
GeneralNettleton, who was acting aeara.^tary of the ti. asui v during Secretary Fos^^ter's absence in ohi.., has directed that^In.inuablv aaarharned auldiala and sailors^be given a credit of ti v e points in all exam^^inations for pi om. ^ I ion In I lie treasury de^part agent under ci \ d set v ice rules.
K\-Kepres.-utativeOwen, the new com^^missioner of immigration, say s the select ion^of Mr. Weber, superintendent of immigra^^tion at the port of New York, to be chair^^man oft he roiiimissiou t o visit Furope for^the purpose of in vest iua t ing im migration,^ill place of e\-l oiigressinan (jlosvenor, re^^signed, is one of I he best that could possi^^bly have been made. ^Mr. Weber is,^ lie^said, ^one o| the most competent men in^the country f..r aaeb a task, as he has had^much experience and is known as a man ol^discretion and u'ood sense. His duties as^^-iip. i iiitendent of immigration al New^% ork have been such as wdl enable him to^look at t he ^ hole ipiestion through a judi^^cious telescope, and I look for excellent^results. The whole matter is, however, us
deeVateaaMaaxy mm, mmd banal be handled^very l'ingerly.^ .
I'ostinasler-CieneralWaiiamaker has is^sued an order dirert lag khat all promotions^in the post otlire depart inenl shall lie ma.li^^on eomprt it iv e examinations, whirh shall^be open to all rlclks ill the next lowest^grades who may care to enter. Several of^the departments make promolionsou com^^pel itive examinations, but the clerks in the^next grade w ho may take these examina^^tions are designated, instead of giving them^all a chance, as Mr. Wanuinaker's rule^does. This is practical civil service reform,^and it will doubtless result in increasing t he^efficiency of the department in all grades,^as a man naturally works with more spirit^when he knows that he has a chance for^promotion.
Thedemocrat who made the discovery^that there was $117.000,000 |,.KH jn the 1^.^S. treasury now than there was on the 1st^of July, IMO, thought that he had found^a veritable luare's nest. He was right^about there being that much less money^on hand, but in order to have made his^statement complete he should have in^^cluded the fact that since July 1, IMO,^there has been paid out by the treasury^for the purchase of bonds fHB.W1W.BlB.^just S2^;,Mn.^4:( more than the reduction^in cash spoken of. Thus another Henio^cratic campaign yarn is disposed of. And^so it w ill be to the end of the chapter. The^thoughtful people of this country will not^be stampeded by Democratic misstate^^ments or partial statements of facts^Taere is no mystery in the Republican ad^^ministration of the country's tinauces; the^tacts and the ligures are always accessible.

8HEMARRIED A SIOUX BUCK
Shela New Tired ot Her B-rgain. Bat Has a^Red and White Kid on Hand
S|eeial to the San Francisco Ex^^aminer: A very pretty romance has^heen shattered liy the news telegraphed^here today that I'ora Belle Fellows^I'haska will apply for a divorce from^her husband, Sain I'haska. Mis.^Chaska is a Washington girl. Her^father, Homer Fellows, is a veteran^clerk in the war department, and al^^though the family has always lived^modestly in a neat little home on^Capitol hill, t'ora Belle was a u'reat^favorite in society here, where she was^received by the best people of Wash^^ington. She is remembered as a re^^markably pretty girl and she might^have had her own choice of husbands^from among the most eligible of the^young men of the Capitol t.'ity without^going to the wilds of Dakota. But^Cora Belle was nothing if not ro^^mantic. It is said of her that, t hough^she bore an unblemished reputation,^she had planned more than one elope^^ment during her girlhood. She always^deciared her marriage would be a sen^sational one and she kepi her word.
Tiringof Washington life, Cora ob-^taiued pet mission from her parents^to visit friends in Dakota, and went^to Chamberlain, South Dakota, where^she spent, several months. There she^met Chaska. Cora Belle did not com^^municate to her family here the fact^she was receiving the attentions of a^more or less wild Indian. Her father^shared 'ieneral Sheridan's opinion^that the only good Indian is the dead^Indian, and so Cora Belle didn't can^^to tell him that she proposed to marry^one. But just before her marriage to^Chaska she wrote to her parents here^and made a clean breast ot the whole^alTair Her letter arrived here the^day the wedding took place in Dakota^and too late for Fellows to take steps^to prevent it. He didn't send his^blessing to the pair, however, though^like a good father he hoped the mar^^riage would prove as happy as such a^union could. Cora Belle didn't gel^any answer to her letter. Shednln'i^write home any more. From ac^^quaintances her friends had learned^she had gone to live with her Indian^husband and had entered upon the^task of civilizing him. The but hot a^child, who is, of course, a halt breed,^was not communicated to her family
Thestatement that the young white^girl has grown tirc.i ^^! her red hns^band and will apply for ^ divorce MM^news to Mr. Fellows. When a reporter^tailed on him today he didn't seem^greatly disturlie.l and antd vary qui^etly: ^I have heard nothing about it.^There has been no eomimuiieation^between my family and my daughter^since her unfortunate marriage. It^any such step as that nient ione.1 in^this dispatch has been taken, it is^hardly proliahle we should have beam^informed of it.
Mr.Fellows didn't care to say^whelher Mrs. 1 haska would lie again^received at her home. She hadn't^asked to be taken back and this ipies^^tion need not he Battled before it^should arise.

HelenaHerald: One of the inissious^of the republican party is to force^prosperity on the south despite its^protests. The Atlanta Const it ut ion^recently published an ii1l0i v lew with a^prominent citizen of (ieorgiu, and was^so indiscreet as to report him truth^fully. He was speaking of a new in^dusfry in which he is largely concerned^and he said: ^The McKinley bill^helped us considerably, but our peo^pie down here don't like for us to say^that.^ It is a singular spectacle^a^great section of the union enjoying un^^precedented prosperity as the result^of republican legislation, and damniii:^not only its authors, but the very^measures that ha\e so greatly con^^tributed to it^ welfare.
BKI.PAHT,N. Y., June 28.^A corres^^pondent who saw Jake Kilrain yester^^day had a short talk with him about^the event which is just now agitating^the sporting world, namely, the pros^^pective meeting between Sullivan and^Slavin.
Thecorrespondent came to Belfast^on the first train and drove about a^mile to the pretty little cottage of^William Muldoon. The proprietor^was not at home, as he had not re^^turned from New York. Mr. and Mrs.^Kilrain were at the cottage, however.
Kilrainis much interested in the^proposed light and talked freely on^the subject. When asked to express^an opinion of the merits of the two^men and what he thought of theprob^able outcome of their meeting, Kil^^rain said:
Well,now, it's hard to pick the^winner. I don't know how to answer^you. They are both good men.
Haveyou no opinion, then,^ was^asked, ^as to the relative merits of^the two men as lighters^
It'sjust this way,^ said Jake.^^'Those two men would be very evenly^matched and I would hesitate a good^long while before putting my money on^either fellow. However, if BoiUvtva^could pet well and go into the ring in^his best condition I rather think he^would have an advantage over Slavin.^Slavin is a good puncher, hut he will^take a punch to give a punch and that^is against him. Of course, every blow^a fellow gets in a light helps to lay him^out. Sullivan is also the bigger man^of the two.
Howmuch bigger^^^^Well, I should say twenty pounds^when he is in fighting trim. ballivaVn^cannot light under 210 or 215 pounds.^He is a great big fellow and very^strong. Slavin is also pretty big and^is a hard hitter.
Theinterviewer here interrupted and^reminded Kilrain that he had been^iiuoted in the Rochester and some of^the New York papers as saying, on the^day after hie meeting with Slavin, that^the latter had a long reach but that^he was not a remarkably hard hitter.^Jake seemed much surprised and^stoutly denied he had said of Slav in.
TheAustralian,^ he said, is a hard^hitter. Every blow count s, and w it h^a man whose arms are short like my^own this is a decided advantage. I^had to take a punch from Slavin in^order to get near enough to leach him^myself. That's the way I got my^black eyes,^ he explained. In Hying^to reach my man I got a few punches^between the eyes 011 t he bridge of the^nose.

SenatorSander, Puts a Quietua on a Demo^^cratic Rooihack.
SenatorSander , v\ hile visit ing But t e^Wednesday, was run down by a Stan^dard reporter who wanted to know all^about the rumor circulated by the^BumIw INfaa, that the Senator and^Commissioner Carter were lixingup a^Harrison delegate slate for the Repub^^lican N.il i.oi.. i i '..[.. eol in-, \,, 1s!iu,
Itis true, wTiiiTi^cvv minor excep^^tions,^ replied the senator.
Amiwhat are the exceptions^^ in^^quired 1 he reporter.
Thelirst except ion is that, there is^nothing in it. Idoa'l know that it is^nr.. sary to give t heol her except ions.
Thenthe senator placed his dexter^hand confidingly on the young man's^^boulder and disclosed to him the fur^^ther fart :
Ihave been in the slate breaking^business myself I v.eiily-liveyears now.^I am too old a man to forsake an old^trade that I have well learned and^adopt another. No, sir, I am not^making slates at this time of life. In^my experience in political life 1 never^yet knew the time that aslatewasput^up and 1 he boys got on to it that t he^boys didn't succeed in breaking it.^Emphatically I am not a slate maker,^never Wt and never will be. I am a^slat .^ breaker from away back.
Whatare 1 he prospects for the Re^^publican nomination.^ was asked by^t he reporter.
Itis too early to talk about that^yet. I think though that if JimO.^Blaine wants the nomination that hr^will undoubtedly get it.

Ohioand Senator Sherman.
PhiladelphiaPress: Since the meet^^ing of the Ohio State Republican Con^^vention last week, t he Democratic and^ex-Republican free trade newspapers^have been tilled with column leaders,^depreciating the alleged ^turning^down^ of Senator Sherman by ex-Gov^^ernor Foraker. Mr. Sherman prob^^ably never knew that he is held in^stu b high esteem by his political oppo^^nents as these political screeds would^signify. They fairly beslobber him^with praise and exhaust all their ad^jectives in desc ribing w hat a loss to the^count ry his enforced retirement from^public life at the end of his present^term will be.
Ifthese newspapers are sincere in^their utterances, they will be over^joyed to learn that there is 110 pros^pect of the country l^eing deprived ol^Senator Shei man's services. In an in^terview printed in the Cincinnati En^.piirer Saturday, ex-Governor Fora^ker said:
Thesenatorial question will not be^rajaed iu our ramp until the propel^time arrives for its consideration^Then, of course, Mr. Sherman will In^re-elected.
Thisought to stop the clat ter about^a contest between Senator Shermai^and ex-Governor Foraker in the Pern^ocratic and ex-Republican free trad,^organs. The t ruth is they care noth^ing about Senator Sherman or his con^tmuance in public life, but they an^very anxious to create dissension ii^Ohio Republican ranks. And their^disappointment was keen last aaaaa^when they found that there is not^Republican in the state, from Seiiatot^Sherman and ex-Governor Foraker^down to the most obscure member of^the party, who is not only willing, but^eager to sink all personal interests in^order to win a victory for Republican^ism in the present campaign.
Thatdisappointment was the cause^of the columns of editorial mush that^choked the pages of the free-trade or^gans last week. Ex-Governor Foraker^E five words has made nonsense of^these tons of Mugwump gush. The^only use the wearied editors can now^make of their effusions is to stack^them 1111 and rest their brains on the^pile.
DenverSpecial to the Inter Ocean.^^George T. Haswell, a prominent resi^^dent of Colorado, to-day became a^raving maniac because of a dispatch^announcing that after many years of^vicissitudes fortune was at last within^his grasp. Mr. Haswell is past 50^years of age, and has resided here^for over seven years. The story dates^from a table in one of the Chicago^wine-rooms. Haswell visited the city^in hope of securing employment in con^^nection with the great fair. One day^last winter he met a party of old ac^^quaintances from Texas where the^greater part of Haswell's life was^spent. The Texans had nearly all^become wealthy through successful in^^vestments pointed out in years agone^by Haswell. Several oi party were^members of the syndicate through^whose efforts 1 he capitol at Austin^was erected. Haswell is said to have^been t he originator of the plan.
Ihiring t heconv n sat ion heexplained^an idea which embraced the organiza^^tion of a company to issue the official^souvenir of t he World's Fair. Tho^souvenir was to be a medal which^arouldcoal probably H) cents and sell^to possibly 8,000,000 people at $1^each. The idea met with the immed^^iate approval of the entire party, and^acornpeuiy was then formed for the^purpoeeindicated. Articles of incor^^poration were secured, and it was yes^^terday announced that the World's^Fair commissioners had accepted the^proposition of the souvenir organiza^^tion that turned the brain of Haswell.
GeorgeT. Haswell has had in many^respects a remarkable career. His^father was for years a prominent pub^^lisher in Philadelphia, and was a^strong personal friend of Andrew^Jackaoci. The son, alt hough identi^^fied during the greater part of his life^with the South, has been known as a^Republican, and had charge of Ar^^thur's headquarters in Chicago at the^time of Blaine's nomination. He was^a bosom friend of Tom Ochiltree's and^held important offices in Washington.^In Texas he served as a member of the^legislature and engaged in all kinds^of enterprises in the Lone Star state^and in Mexico. During the war he^ua~ a staunch Union man and for^t vventy-five years he was a prominent^lignre in Texas politics. At various^periode he has resided in Boston,^Philadelphia, and numerous southern^and western cities. A daughter of^his. Miss Percy Haswell, is well known^111 theatrical circles, havine been with^a ^Shenandoah^ company and Nat^Goodwin for several years.

Josephand Hiram Smith, the nior-
tfnna,were killed liy ^ mol# at^l'ar-^t huge. III., June 27, U^T-i. For a long^time there had been great excitement^in the state on account of alleged law^^less acts ot the saints and violence^was ifeqiimtly resorted to. Finally a^number of the mormons, including the^Smiths, were arrested and lodged in^the jail at Carthage. Only a small^guard was stationed over them and^these entered into an agreement to fire^in the air when t he lynchers made their^appearance. Aboot 1^^(^ men with^blackened fares made a rush upon the^iail and were not opposed until they^came to the room where the mormons^wet.-1 oiilinrd. The door was closed^and they refused to open it. The at-^ki 1 ilx party then tired a volley^through the door, killing Hiram Smith,^who exclaimed aa he fell: 'I amadead^man.^ Tailor and Richards, both^saints,^ hid under or behind a bed.^loaaph Smith, the prophet, had a six-^liari. led pistol, which he used with ef^^fect upon Us assailants, w ouiidingfour^^f them. When his weapon was^mptied he ran loaw indovv and partly^jumped and partly Ml into the yard^below. He w as badly w uunded, covered^with blood and dazed. The lynchers^found him sit I ing up and trying to get^on his feet w hen they entered the yard,^but they had no compassion on him.^They shot him a~ they would a dog^and he fell to the ground dead, four^bullets having pierced his body.
Wantsto Get His Brother out of Jail.
GeorgeBidwell, the famous Bank of^England forger, lectured in Portland,^Me., the other evening. It will be^remembered that he w as released from^Chatham prison, England, about six^years ago through the efforts of a^number of piominent men, who be^^lieved that he had thoroughly re^^pented.

Howto See a Plant Grow
Liedown some day beside a gladio^^lus bed after recent rain and sunshine^have made a thiu crust over theearth,^and when the green spears are just^beuinning to push through it. You^w ill see some cracks in the crust, and^by-aud-by a little trap-door will begin^to lift, as tbough some small Titan^were struggling underneath. Look^sharply now, for if you do not you^may turn your wandering eyes back^to Mad the green laborer pushing at^the door without your having seen^him come. Soon he will throw back^the cover on its hinges and stand there^for the first time in the sunlight an^inch above the ground. All this done^maybe even in an hour. Few things^grow faster than the gladiolus.^New^York Tribune.

NewYork Times: Senator I'etlcr of^Kansas, is really entitled to public^gratitude for coming to New York^and making an authoritative exposi^^tion of the views and demands of the^Farn.ets' Alliance. ( M course, he mado^this exposition under the auspices of^persons known in New York, so far as^they are known at all, as unimpor^^tant and absurd. It is quite super^^fluous to undertake a ^refutation^ ol^Senator Peffer or to deal with him at^all seriously. All the same he has done^a public service by setting forth in a^tangible shape the ^demand^ of the^Farmers' Alliance that two and two^shall henceforth make live and that^water shall run up hill by act of con^gress. What remains to ha Wan is^whether either of the two political^parties will stultify iteett and insult^the intelligence of its member* bj^adopting or pretending to adopt^Peffer's proposition.
