BUNDS ON SILVER
Carlisle's Report Criticized
by the Congressman
WITHDRAWALS OF GOLD.
Not Caused Solely by the Lack
of Confidence in Money in
IMPORTS EXCEED EXPORTS.
Remedy for the Turning of Trade in
Favor of the United
WASHINGTON, D. C. Dec. 17.— Francis
G. New-lands, the Representative of the
silver party in the House, speaking of Sec
retary Carlisle's report, says:
"Mr. Carlisle argues upon the assump
tion that the withdrawals of gold from the
treasury have been caused by lack of con
fidence in the character of our ruoney and
that hence it is necessary to 'retire all
greenbacks and treasury notes, which by
the custom of the Treasury Department
have been redeemed oil presentation in
"The same argument would of course ap
ply to the silver certificate, and we are
obliged, thereiore, to meet a possible de-
Ttl'and from this administration that about
one-half of our present volume of money
should be retired. Such a contraction
would, of course, be destructive beyond
the power of imagination to depict. Mr.
Carlisle is wrong in his assumption. The
withdrawals of gold have been caused by
the export of gold, and this exists simply
because our import of goods exceed our
experts. The gold must be paid. If it
were not paid from the treasury the banks
would have to supply it. Sucli a strain
thrown upon tne banks would have pro
duced a universal panic.
•'fiie vital question is, how can the
balance of trade be turned in our favor?
My answer is by diminishing the'amount
of our imports and by increasing the
amount of our exports. To make the im
ports less the tariff wall should be raised
higher. Toincreaso tne value and amount
of our exports, which consist principally
of natural products, such as wheat, cot
ton, wool, beef, etc., produced by silver
standard countries in competition with us,
it is necessary to increase the value of
every ounce of silver. This can only lie
done by increasing the use of silver, and to
the extent that such increased use aug
ments the value of silver to that extent it
will increase the value of our exportable
products, and only to turn the trade in our
"As to the perils of contraction caused
by the withdrawal of greenbacks and
treasury notes, Mr. Carlisle proposes that
increased facilities for issuing notes should
be given to the National banks. He for-
gets that these are redeemable in gold, and
that in hard tinier they will prove as great
a scourge to the banks as they have been
to the treasury.
"The banks will have enough to do to
meet in trying times the demands of de-
positors without adding a liability to bill
holders. What we need is more primary
money, not credit money — money trood for
redemption, not so-calicd money neces
sary to be redeemed and worthless for re

Adoption of the Report of licpublicuns in
WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 17.— The
Republicans of the Senate in caucus this
afternoon adopted the report of the com
mittee appointed to till the vacancies in
the Senate committees. There was not a
dissenting vote 1 , although Chairmen Mor

Hoar of Judiciary thought it unwise to en

There are sixty committees in the Sen
ate. Of these, forty-three have been given
to Republicans, six to Populists and eleven
to Democrats. Each vacancy was tilled,
seven places being assigned to some Sena
tors and six to some others, with the un
derstanding that should Utah send two
Republican Senators, and should a Repub
lican be admitted from Delaware, places
could then be made for these Senators by
resignation on the part of the Senators
having an excess of assignments.
The committee agreed on every matter
that came before it but the one proposi
tion, to wit: To charge the name of the
select committee to inquire into all claims
of citizens of the United States against the
Government of Nicaragua, to "select com
mittee on the Nicaragua canal and to in
quire into claims of citizens of the United
States against the Government of Nica
ragua." They also proposed to increase
the committee from live to seven and give
the minority the chairmanship and the
Republicans four members.

SECUltlXii THE BONUS.
Union I'aeiflr. Reornanizer.t Said to lie
NEW YORK, N. V.. Dec. 17.— A special
meeting of the Union Pacific reorganiza
tion committee was heid this morning.
The depositaries reported a very consider
able and constant increase both in the for
eign and home deposits, and there appears
nu\v no longer to be any doubt that a ma
jority of the rir?t mortgage bonds will
shortly be under the control of the com
mittee; in fact, it is understood that the
committee already holds a majority of
what is considered the most important di
vision of the system.
After the meeting a member of the com
mittee said, informally, that the privilege
to bondholders to come into the reorgani
zation, instead of having their bonds paid
off, is considered so very valuable that
even with the penalty which it is the inten
tion to impose after January 1, the inclina
tion within the committee appears to be
not to extend this privilege to minority
bondholders for any length of time.

Interesting Testimony Givn at the Trial
of Dr. Hearne.
BOWLING GREEN, Mo., Dec. 17.—
Court opened this morning in the Hearne
trial with Mrs. R. H. Stillwell on the
witness-stand. She testified that, although
Mrs. Amos Stillwell claimed to be sick a
great deal for some time before the mur
der, she was always apparently well when
Dr. Hearne was absent.
"When the doctor came in she would im
mediately go into a spell, and everybody
would leave the room except she and the
doctor. Witness again recited the gown
incident, saying that the gown Mrs. Still
well wore on the morning of the murder
had the appearance of never having been
worn in bed and that it was not the char
acter of the gown Mrs. Amos Stilhvell
usually wore. She also stated that, al
though Mrs. Stilhvell claimed to be in a
stunor on the morning of the murder, she
told witness that after that she was con
scious of everytning that went on.

AN ATE WITH A MEMORY.
Makes Things Lively for Men Who Hare
NEW YORK, N. V., Dec. 17.— H. H.
Cordis, who has a saloon at pier 3, Hamil
ton ferry, Brooklyn, owns an ape named
Jack. Robert Allison, a driver for the
Knickerbocker Ice Company, gave the ape
a chunk of ice one day last summer. The
ape danced about howling with pain, but
held on to the ice.
Yesterday when Allison went into the
saloon with a cake of ice the animal was
perched upon the cage about three feet
from the beer box. Allison turned his
back to arrange the ice cakes in* the
refrigerator, when Jack sprang upon his
shoiuder with a cry of anger. Before
Allison knew what was the matter Jack
had dug his claws into his neck and
fastened his teeth in his rLht ear. The
barkeeper pulled the ape from Allison's
back, Jack still lighting and trying to tear
Allison's ear off with his teeth. While
Allison is in no immediate danger of death,
his wounds are of a character that will be
slow in healing, and the physician is afraid
of blood poisoning.
Jack some time ago took a dislike to a
sailor who gave him a chew of tobacco in a
peanut, and three months after, when the
sailor returned from a tiip, having for
gotten all about the occurrence, the
animal attacked him and nearly chewed
off one hand.

Two Companies of Irish-American
Volunteers Formed in
Ready to Perform Service in the Field
Against Any Foe of This
CHICAGO, 111., Dec. 17. -Two com
panies of the "Irish Volunteers," an Irish-
American army, have been formed in
Chicago. The army is an inner wheel of
the Clan-na-G;iel, the secret organization
which has been actively identified with
many revolutionary movements in behalf
of the green isle.
Each camp of the Clan-na-Gael through
out the country is now organizing one or
more companies of the new army. These
companies have been organized by camps
Henry Grattan and Robert Emmet. The
rirst numbers sixty-two men and the second
(the newer) has only nineteen men at pres
ent, but reports lifteen or more ready
to join. Camp Dr. P. 11. Croniu will have
a company ready to muster in within a
month and Camp Celtic will have one by
the Ist of February. It is expected a full
regiment ot ten companies will be raised
The local companies of the Irish Volun
teers will make their first appearance in
public on March 4, the anniversary of
the death oi Robert Km met.
The man at the head of the movement
in Chicago is Patrick McGarry, a promi
nent member of the Clan-na-Gaei, and
national secretary of the Ancient Order of
Hibernians. Associated with him are John
Ryan, P. W. Dunne, Martin Dowiing and
\Y. P. Wren.
Patrick McGarry said yesterday: "Or

nection with the notorious 'Triangle' were

"Our organization differs materially
from the Hibernian Rifles, which is at
tached to the Ancient Order of Hiber
nians, and which requires its members

parentage. Wniie one of our objects is to

PROHIBITION IN ALASKA
Territorial Grand Jury Inveighs
Against the Stringent
Liquor-Sellers Indicted Under Protest
by an Investigating Body at
PORT TOW2>*SEND, Wash., Dec. 17.-
The people of Alaska are divided into two
factions over the enforcement of the liquor
laws, which are intended to prohibit the
sale of intoxicants in the Territory. One
faction demands that liquors be sold in the
Territory without prohibitory restriction,
and the other, including the Government
officials, insists upon the enforcement of
At present the latter faction has the
better of it. All the saloon-keepers and
liquor-dealers were indicted by the Grand
Jury last week, in accordance with the
explicit instructions of Judge Truitt, but
append ed to the report was the following:
"We have presented youT Honor with
true bills against all the saloon-keepers
and manufacturers of intoxicating liuuors
in Juneau, Douglas Island, Sitka and Fort
Wrangle, because your Honor's clear in
structions gave us no alternative, but we
take this opportunity to say — and we
believe that in doing so we express the
sentiments of nine-tenths of the people of
Alaska— that the prohibitory law, so far as
it applies to us, is obnoxious and repug
nant alike to the principle of home rule
and the American spirit of freedom.
'Owing to the damp and rigorous cli
mate of Alaska a stimulant becomes a
necessity to those exposed to the elements.
We believe therefore that the only real,
lastine and satisfactory solution of the
liquor question is the granting of licenses
upon the payment of the usual fees; the
money derived from said fees to be util
ized in carrying out necessary improve
ments, such as organizing a good sfuiitarv
system for the prevention of diseases
caused by breathing impure air, repairing
our streets and sidewalks, etc. We feel
that though we are in Alaska we are still
in the United States, and a statement of
our needs is entitled to as much consid
eration from the National Government as
would be given to the requirements of the
District of Columaia. A licensing system
would eventually ston all smuggling,
would give all the business to American
merchants, the Government would derive
a revenue instead of having, as at present,
to maintain a revenue steamer in our
waters engaged in a fruitless attempt to
seize contrabrand goods; and lastly, all
keepers of licensed houses would assist in
bringing to justice persons known to sell
without a license/

CRIME OF A JEALOUS SUITOR

ALBANY, Or., Dec. 17.— News comes
from Harrisburg that an unknown
would-be assassin attempted to murder
Miss Ethel Riddle there Saturday night.
The girl, who is about 18 years old, lived
with her uncle, George Henderson. After
supper she started to leave her home, and
as she emerged from the door she was
seized by a man in the darkness. He
stabbed her in the neck and across the
wrists. She broke away and ran scream

hearing her cries, ran to the door and the
A physician who was called found that
the girl's wounds were not dangerous, the
gash in her neck having missed an artery.
Twice before, recently. Miss Riddle has
been the victim of attempted assassin
ation, having been tired upon in the
darkness. Her stories concerning the at
tacks were scarcely believed by her rela
tives, who thought she was frightened at
promiscuous shooting in the neighbor
hood. The young girl's assailant was not
recognized in the darkness, and the only
theory as to the cause of the attempted
murder is that the deed was prompted by
the jealousy of a rejected suitor.

they had just been relating thrilling stories
of "bad" men and bold outlaws. Two
shots fired over their heads were sufficient
to convince them that the men meant
business and all hands went up.
Mr. Brooks, the proprietor, had about
$800 secreted outside of the safe and his
loss was consequently light. The robbers

' Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt infuses a continu-
ous flow of electricity into the body for hours
at a time. Every moment that the Belt is on'
the body its sparkling, vitalizing powers are
felt penetrating the nerve tissues, filling them
, with new life, new, healthy vigor, and charging
the blood with the vital force which nature in
childhood bestowed upon the body. When the
Kidneys, Liver, Stomach, Heart, Nerves and
Blood are charged with this life they throw off
disease and regain their healthy state. In this
way Dr. Sanden's Belt has cured thousands.
Why Medicine Fails.
Drugs are like whisky, only a temporary

element in medicine to restore the power to
the nerves, upon which all vital organs live.
That nerve power is electricity. That is why '
