SIAM SUES FOR PEACE.
Every Effort Made to Placate
Rather Than Fight She Will
The Blockade of the Siamese Coast
England Will Insist tha British Ships
lie Mot Molested—Chinese Troops
Id tbe Fleid-A More Peace
By tho Associated Tress.
Bangkok, July 28.— Siamese gov-
eminent continnee making every effort
to maintain peace with France and is
encouraged witb the events of the last
24 hours to believe that an understand
ing will be reached shortly. The French
Hag has been hoisted at Kohei Chang.
The night passed quietly. Anxiety,
continues. The French gdnboats passed
ont of the Menam river last night, and
will rendezvous with the other vessels
off the island of Koh-Si-Chang. Trade
is at a standstill. No vessels are in the
FKiR OP RIOTING BY CniNESE.
The representatives here of several
powers, the leading merchants of the
city and the commanders of the British
and German gunboats met today at the
British legation to discusß what action
shocld be taken in the event of rioting
on the part of the Chinese, who,form a
large percentage of the city's popula
tion. The question wae left open, but it
waa decided to ask Siam to station mili
tary guards in the business centera as a
measure of precaution.
THE BLOCKADB BEGUN.
Paris, Jnly 28.—1t is eemi-officislly
stated that the French blockade of the
Siamese coaet began today. Fifteen
hundred troops have been ordered in
readiness to proceed to Siam.
RUSSIA WILL NOT HELP FRANCE.
Admiral Uumann has yet made no re
port to the government as to the block
ade. The press aud pnblic are begin
ning to realize that it la useless to ex
pect Russia to assist France in grabbing
Siam. A dispatch from Pekin says the
viceroys of Kwangsi add Yunnan hare
received instructions from the Chinese
court for guidance in the event of a con
flict between Siam and France.
■ ... H " i!J f "l * s £?n TO EXPLAIN.
today the foreign eecretary, in reply to
a question, said the French foreign min
ister had assured the British ambassa
dor to France that the blockade of
Siamese ports would not begin till July
31st. The British minister at Siam,
however, telegraphed that it actually
began July 26th, and this has been con
firmed. Paris has been telegraphed for
an explanation of the discrepancy.
ANXIETY IN ENGLAND.
The News association says: Serious
anxiety exiets in political and govern
ment circles anent Siamese affairs.
Gladstone has cancelled his intended
visit to Hatchlands place. Lord Roae
bery is closely engaged in the foreign
office morning and night. This evening
he is in consultation with the sec
retary of the Chinese legation in
London. Official telegrams are ex
changed constantly and special messen
gers are traveling uninterruptedly be
tween Pariß and London. General Rob
erts, recently commander-in-chief of the
army In India, is returning hurriedly to
London from Glasgow, whence he had
intended to make a tour of the High
A MORE PEACEFUL OUTLOOK.
All the special correspondents of Lon
don dailies agree tonight that the Siam
outlook is more peaceful. Paris corres
pondents predict a speedy settlement of
SIAM WILL BACK DOWN.
The Bangkok correspondent of the
Times Bays: The prompt enforcement
of the blockade haß seemingly convinced
the Siamese that the assumed friendly
attempt at intervention hy Great Britain
in Paris has not availed. Siam, there
fore, will probably concede immediately
the last difference remaining between
her and France.
ENGLAND THROWS OFF HER MASK.
New York, July 28.—The World's
special London cable says: England
threw off today the mask of apathy be
hind which she has been concealing her
real feelings about the Siamese compli
cations. She is rapidly making ready
to pat herself across the pathway of tri
umphant France. It is reported tonight
that the foreign office has instructed
Dufferin to demand of the French gov
ernment positive assurance that Eng
lish ships will not be molested, but
allowed to enter and leave Siamese ports
freely, and if tbe French government
refuses he is to ask for his passports and
leave Paris at once. There seems to be
an element of truth in this report.
china's reserved rights.
Berlin, luly 28.—The London corres
pondent of the Cologne Gazette says;
"China has reserved the rights of sov
ereignty over the principality of Chieng

World's Fair Officials Again
An Injunction Against Sunday
Still in Force and It Must Be

Visitors Tomorrow—Another Row
In Progress Among the
By the Associated Press.
Chicago, July 23.—The world's fair
will again be open- next Sunday. The
conncil of administration decided on
this tonight. Some time ago during the
Sunday closing agitation Charles Cling
man, one of the stockholders, aakad in
the Btate court for an injunction to pre
vent the closing of the fair on Sunday.
It will be remembered that Judge Stein
granted the injunction, but owing to
subsequent action in the federal court
and the resolve of the directory finally
to close the gates, this action remained
in statu quo. This week, however,
Clingman brought his caae up again,
s and Judge Stein cited the council of ad
ministration to answer next Monday
for contempt for viol Ct ing the injunc
tion. The council of administration to
night, in view of this action, decided to
open the gates next Sunday, and it is
hoped that in the following week the
matter of Sunday closing may be de
finitely settled once for all.

Large Orders for Gold for
Taken as a Sign of Returning
Dull Trade and Tight Money Still
Many Manufacturing Industries Closing;
Down In the Kast—The Vint of
Bank Failures Dally
By the Associated Press.
Washington, July 28. — The large
orders given by New York financial
houses for gold abroad to be imported
are regarded at tbe treasury department
as a favorable symptom of returning
confidence. Much of the geld now
coming here is tbe same exported sev
eral months ago. The heavy shipment
of American cereala abroad wittiin the
past two months has materially reduced
the balance of trade against us. Under
such circumstances it will be natural for
the United States to continue to receive
gold from abroad. Gold in considerable
quantities is also coming here from tbe
West Indies. This Spanish gold on
reaching our shores finds its way to the
assay offices and is melted into bars, and
this and the European gold soon find
lodgment in the United States treasury.
From tbe ptesent indications the gold in
the treasury will therefore Boon pass
$100,000,000. It is today $97,100,
--000. When the $100,000,000 mark
is passed the treasury will again
resume the issuance of gold certificate*!
which by law had to be suspended whe 5
the treasury cold was reduced belo A
$100,000,000. Trie gold certificates no I
outstanding aggregate $89,000,000, a'
unusutllyemallQuantityfor thetreasut '
to havfc. The department, howsvei,
shows little or no interest whatever in
the gold reserve, whether it be $100,000
000 or $75,000,000, as it is the policy' I
Secretary Carlisle to vie the gold t »
band the same as he does currency in
meeting tbe obligations of the treasury.
So, for several months past the gold re
serve has been treated as available cash.!
On tliis basis the available cash in lh,\
treasury today is $122,000,000.
New Yobk, July 28. —Three hundred
and forty-seven thousand dollars gold
