Silver Conventions Held In the North
west—Suspended Hanks on the
Faelfle Coast Resum
By the Associated Press,
New Yoek, July 6.—The business
men of the metropolis met today and
considered the financial and commercial
situation by which they are surrounded.
The occasion was the gathering of the
chamber of commerce, in response to a
call issued by the leading members, who
therein declared tbat the present dis
turbed condition of the finances of tbe
country called for a public expression of
opinion by business men as to the rem
edy to be applied for the restoration of
confidence. Vice-President Orr pre
John Claflin arose and said they-did
not need to be told that the strain busi
ness men were suffering from was a se
vere one. He did not believe
that tbey were on tho verge of
a commercial panic; they were
passing throngh one. Tbere have been
many causes, he said, which contributed
to tbe present troubles. Most of them
would right themselves in tbe natural
course of business, but there was one
chief cause which was not included in
the category, and tbat was the silver
.purchasing clause of the Sherman law.
i Applause. I U caused distrust abroad
and weakened ns while it strengthened
Europe. He did not see how any sensi
ble man could oppose the repeal of the
law; any law tbat might take its place
should only be enacted after wise and
Claflin concluded by offering for adop
tion resolutions which recited that tbe
country had often suffered from hasty
and ill-advised legislation, and was now
Buffering from the effects of the silver
purchasing clause of the Sherman act.
In consequence ol the alarm money was
withdrawn from circnlation, business
was depressed, mills and manufactories
were preparing to close, and thousands
of laboring men were about to be thrown
out Of employment; that business en
terprises' Won Id not be resumed or labor
steadily employed until money could be
obtained at moderate rates, and ordi
nary interest rates could not be ex
pected until confidence in the sta
bility of all the money of tbe coun
try was thoroughly re-established;
that the repeal of the silver purchase
clause of the Sherman act was essential
to prompt restoration of national pros
perity, and urging the speedy and un
conditional repeal of tbe clause.
Further, that in the judgment of the
chamber, a representative commission
should be appointed by congress at a
special session to diligently study the
coinage and cnrrency laws of the
United States and other countries and
report at the regular session of congress,
to the end that a comprehensive plan
for a safe aud elastic currency may be
carefully matured in the light of tbe
An amendment providing for a com
mittee of seven, to go to Washington and
work for the repeal of the Sherman law,
waß offered by Louis Windmiller and a
lengthy discussion followed, after which
the resolutions and amendment were
adopted, there being but three nays.
Silver Men and Populists May Unite on
a Candidate Bar Speaker.
Washington, July6.—Gen. A. J. War
ner, president oi the American Bimetal
lic league, said todas': "We may look
for purchases oi eilv . r on account oi the
Indian government at any time. In
fact, that government bas adopted sort
of a Bland law, exc.tpt that it fixed the
ratio at 2!> 4 for converting rupees into
silver. If tne mm bof the west remain
closed for any length of time, silver will
rise as the reeu'r, of purchases by our
government and on account of India."
Questioned as to the alleged purpose
of the silver convention in Chicago,
August Ist, to pass a resolution favor
ing the demonetization of gold, Warner
eaid he knew nothing of the purpose to
introduce Buch a bill.
It is now stated the silver men may
play a part in tbe selection of a speaker.
The announcement tbat there is a possi
bility that Bland may be placed as chair
man of the committee on coinage,
weights and measures, has stirred them
to renewed efforts. Stories of attempted*
combination between the free silver ad
vocates and Populists to place a candi
date for the speakership in the field
unless they have an assurance of Crisp
that Bland will be retained at
tbe boad of the committee,
are floating about, bat are not
generally credited; for, though it is
openly said by |t>me that Bland will not
again be chairnmn ot the committee,
there are no fat ts that wonld warrant
sncb an assertion. Crisp has not even
intimated auch a thing. Among the
more conserve ,ye the impression is
tbat Bland wi'il head the committee.
This would not, however, indicate tbat
the entire committee will remain un
changed. It ist known that Crisp has
made absolutely no pledges one way or

Cairo, 111., July O.—A negro answer
ing the description of the murderer of
two girls near Bardwell, Ky., yesterday,
wae caught and jailed at Sikeston, Mo.,
today. In his possession was found a
bloody razor and five ladies' gold rincs,
one oi which was worn by one of the
girls on the morning of the murder. He
was identified by parties who tracked
him from Kentucky.
A special train bearing 200 of the pur
suing party of armed men from Ken
tucky arrived at Sikeston, Mo., at 11
o'clock tonight. The plan ia to briag
the prisoner back to Bird's point on the
special train. In the meantime a party
of 500 Cairoites have chartered a terry
boat and gone to Bird's point to meet
the Kentuckianß. Xhe prisoner wili be
taken to Wyckliffe, the scene or the
murder. It is now stated the Sikeston
authorities are not fully sat islied as to the
identification of the prisoner, notwith
standing the bloody razor and ladies'
rings on his person.
Later advices from Sikeston say the
authorities have surrendered Miller to
the Kentuckyiane and they aro leaving
with him by a special train. Miller
claims to live at Springfield, 111. The
train is due to arrive at ISird'a Point
at I! o'clock a. m., whence the entire
party will immediately embark for the
scene of the awiul crime. A ferryboat
will carry a throng, of indignant citizens
and the prisoner direct to the place

rangements will be made for barbecuing

Buzzard's Bay, Mass., July 6. —Pres-
ident Cleveland is confined to his room
witb an attack of rheumatism in his foot
and knee, a complaint from which he
has suffered for yeara. It will be neces
sary for tho president to deny himself
to visitors to get all the possible benefit
from his vacation.
Colonel Lamont said tonight the pres
ident's condition remained about the
same. The preaident was able to get on
the piazza for a short time during the
afternoon. Mony telegrams have been
received inquiring as to the Beriottßness
of his ilineßß. It is not of a serious
character, but Surgeon-General Bryant
says the president must have absolute
rest and (iniet. The president will te
iuain through July. A representative
of the Associated Press had the follow
ing interview with Dr. Bryant:
"Doctor, you would confer a great
favor by making some sort of official
statement regarding the president's con
"The preaident ie all right," said the
"From what, is be suffering?"
"He's Buffering trom rheumatism,
just as reported this afternoon; thoae
reports are correct."
"Then, doctor, the report that he is
Buffering from a malignant or.cancerous
growth on the mouth and that an op
eration waa necessary and has been per
formed to relieve him, is not correct."
"He is suffering from hia teeth, that's
all," answered the doctor.
"Haa an operation been performed?"
"That's all," said the dootor again.
The Nicaragua!! Legation at Washington
Washington, July 6.—Dr. Guzman,
the Nicaraguan minister, today called
upon Secretary Gresham and presented
his letters of recall. He communicated
to the department the facVthat the Niu
araguan government had abolished its
legations in all save a few countries iv
South and Central America. This action
is understood to be based on economical
considerations. Ah a matter of interna
tional comity, the diplomatic representa
tion of one country with another is ex
pected to be reciprocal. It iB thought
unlikely, however, that this course will
be pursued with Nicaragua, as American
interests in the cacal are so important
that Mr. Lewis Baker of Minnesota,
present minister to Nicaragua, will
probably be requested to remain.

By the Associate'! Pfoffl.
Honolulu, June 20, (per steamer via
<an Frnnciecj), July 6. —Yesterday
tfternooa's developments in the now
iamcras conspiracy case were quite sen
sational. The preliminary examination
sf Crick, Walker and Sinclair went on,
and as each successive witness was ex
amined the stronger the government's;
case appeared to be.
Simon Yon Topaz, aßoldier in the pro
visional army, testified that Walker had
approached him on several occasions,
and alter predicting tha return of the
ijueen to power offered him a posi
tion in the custom house as Boon
as the old order oi things waa restored,
if he (Yon Topnz) would give him a list
of soldiers who would turn traitors.
Walker Baid he could easily overthrow
the provisional government, as' he had
J 000 armed men and told Yon Topaz to
advise his coinpsuy to lay down their
arms in case of trouble. Walker assured
witness that the royalists had good
hackers iv the persons of Claus Spreck
els and James Campbell. Sinclair waß
with Walker on several occasions when
these statements were made; also John
Howler on one oecusion. Walker eaid
his plan was to prevent the volunteer
force of the provisional government
from approaching the executive build
ing, and relying on tho co-operation of
members of the guard, his men would ef
fect an entrance to the building through
an underground passage. A mass meeting
of royalists had been called, hut tbe na
tives did not attend, aud only 000 whitea
and half-whites were present. Sam
Nowline, a half-white, was to be one of
the leaders of the crowd.
A. 8. i'reacott, a member of Yon To
pp.z'3 compauy, testified that he also
had been approached by Walker, Pres
cott corroborated Yon Topaa's testi
mony, and further said Walker had told
him that (.lit Ka Spreckels v.bb to arsiat
by giving the rovalistn $1,000,001), aud
James Campbell $500,000. Walker eaid
he had access to the water mains and had
a battery connected with the govern
ment building and could blow it up.
Sotno of the royalist fighters were con
cealod about ttio queeu's promises and
others were ont drilling. The assault
on the government was to be made if
the decision ol the United States waa
against the royalists.
Both Yon Topaz aad Preseott were
told they would be shot by members of
a secret society if they divulged the
plans pf the royr.lists.
The fact that a list of conspirators is
in the possession of the provisional
government has leaked out, and there
aye many upetioy royalists in town. It
is the hope of the government that tbey
will have such a strong case against
Crick, Walker and Sinclair that these
three men, who to he only
the tools of more prominent men, seeing
that conviction is certain, will turn
state's evidence in tho hope of getting
BFBJEGKJ3LB NOT SUSPECTED.
It is not believed tint Spreckels has
entered into tho conspiracy, but that
Walker ÜBed his name in order to influ
ence the soldiers to turn traitors. While
the sugar king openly fought against an
nexe.tjoti, he is believed to be too shrewd
a man to join with nren like those on
trial. All three of them are men of dis
solute habits, who went .about boasting
of what they intended to accomplish,
and it is no wonder their plana were dis
covered by the police.
Claus Spreckels at the last moment
decided not to return to San Francieco,
and only his son Rudolph aud lire.
Spreckels and Miss Spreckels sailed on,
tile Mariposa today.
THIS TRIAL RESUMED.
Captain Good, ot company I? of the
provisional army, was the firat witness
for the prosecution when the examina
tion of the eousp-iraiora waa resumed
this morning. Ho testified that Yon
Topaz, a member of hia company, had
made written reports to him of his con
versations with Walker, and the letter's
proposition to him. These reports were
made between June 17th and 21st.

er's confidence. He tentitied tbat
