"lho legislature lias fostered the

good by taxing us as little us possible."

accused. Judge White ruled tUut it
was not ndmisstble.
.J. 13, Martio, tho clork at Gladys

called by the defense to fay whether lie

The rross examination by Col. Craig
probably did tint injure tho prisoner's

spectators showed stronger sympathy
with tho tnuu mi trial. If Coi, Craig
sought to be drntnotic he succeeded,
lie left his Boat uud ho and Cupt.Good?
man rebearsed the shooting scene, the
object of the attorney being to forco
tho accused to admit thut Parsons
grasped Coiidman'o wrist, instead of

that Co). I'nreous grasped bis hand.
As Minn us this answer was returned
Col. Craig would repeat the question,
und this circuit of question and answer
was kept up so long that Goodman,
stating that bo bad been ill .'or three
days, said bo hoped Col. Craig
would assign Iiis reason for re?
suming his seat to that cause.
I The prisoner's manner was quiet and
in every respect iu strong contrast with
that of tho more morourial attorney.

to the continued repetition of the samo

and apparently as cool as ever,

j Treasury officials are embarrassed by

under tbo recent contract aud other
nseertions of a similar nature, calcu?
lated to mislead and disturb tho public

withdrawals of gold from tho Treasury
Miiee the 1st ol March, 1895,have been
$355,347, of which S-H1.US7 havo beuu

Treasury notes and $74.260 for tho re
tireuient oi United .states notes.
Moreover, during the snuie pertotl tho
Treasury bus received considerable

The apparent falling off in tho gold
rosorvo wus oaused by misunderstand

stutomout of the Treasury department
from tho daily reports of transactions
sent lroiu tho snb-Trens-ury at Now
York, a large amount of gold which
should havo boon deposited for exami?
nation and count and should not have
been counted iu the reserve until tho
liunl certificates upon which bonds
could bo issued could be delivered.
The February figures tptotcii in the
articles us withdrawn iucludo the heavy
withdrawals of the curlier part of that
mouth before tho gold purchase con?
tract was made, and one single largo
item uot withdrawn for export, con?
cerning winch there has becu consid?
erable newspaper comment.
'lhe writers of tho articles evidently
don't understand foreign exchuugu or
tho method ol doing business therein.
The Treasury officials who uro charged
with the responsibility of those trans
actions have no anxiety whutover in
regard to the method which is, and lias
tuen,pursued by the sellers of the gold
coin under the recent contract.
In regard to the excess id govern*
incut ex; enditnroi over receipts it is
will known thnl tho latter are rapidly
increasing, und that up to tins time
nothing li'is been received from tho iu
come tax, and very littlo from sugur,

Treasury to pay tho appropriations,
and tho statements in souio articles
that "it tho Treasury had the money
the passage of tbo appropriation bills
would lead to the immediate disburse?
ment of immonte sums of money" axe
totally untrue. I hero is a questiou of
law iiB to when the appropriation tor
the payment of tho sugar bounty be*
cotnos available, und until that ques?
tion is bottled it will be impossible to
make any payments thereunder. More?
over, all the olaims for bounty must bo
adjusted before payment, since pay?
ment must tie pro rata if the appropri?
ation should be insufficient.
The Treasury nftloiala havo no
uuxiety as to their ability to meet all
obligations in the immediate future
with ease and are COUtltlvUt that tho
expected revival of business will as?

country will be greatly hasteued when
