for the full fiscal year. Notwithstanding
this showing for the year's operations,
thcro Is no expectation from any source
of nn extra session of congress, or another
bond lssuo before the regular meeting In
December. To-day the gold reserve
amounts to about (?,G0O,0U0. with an avail
able cash balance of nearly (ISI,0"0,OW,
which Is regarded oh ample to meet nil
ordinary demands. The spirit ot confi
dence nnd security which pervades the
treasury department at this time Is largely
due to the provision in the last bond con
tract obligating the syndicate to protect
the gold In the treasury from withdrawals
for export. The nblllty ot the syndicate
to cany out this provision has been amply
demonstrated during the last several
months when the into of exchange has at
limes ruled far nliove the cnort nolnt.
This obligation cannot bo discharged until
October 1 next.
At tho present time the syndicate owes
the government nbout (7,500,000 on Its con
tract nnd while the entire Issue of bonds
has been taken to London deliveries will
be made only as fast as gold Is deposited.

Chicago, Juno 10 W. W. Taylor, ex
state treasurer ot South Dakota, did not
put in in appearance nt the Palmer houso
to-day, as was expected. He was In tho
city, however, for a short time, although
his whereabouts could not be ascertained.
II, A. Taylor, of Lafayette, Ind., was at
the Palmer. Ho said that his brother did
not desire to be Interviewed, 'it was re
ported that Attorney General Crawford, of
South Dakota, was with Taylor.
Taylor left on the t:10 o'clock North
webtern trnln for Pierre, S. D where he
will give himself up. It was n little over
four months ago that Taylor passed
through Chicago on his way to the trop
ics, where he has successfully evaded a
cohort of detectives who never quit his
trail from the day that he left South Da
kota. He Is sunburned and careworn from
his travels and troubles, and expressed
himself to friends as very glad that die
was returning home to settle up the mat
ter at the cost of liberty. l
Liter It was learned that Taylor did
take quarters .at the Palmer house, but
under an assumed name to avoid annoy
ance. Tho ex-state treasurer denied In
terviews to all outsiders and would not
give the slightest Information about his
Duriiur tho dnv he was in consultation
with Attorney Uenernl Crawford and his
attorney, D. K. Tenny. about the del-ills
of the terms upon which ho has returned.
It Is said that Taylor will turn over nil
tho money he has on hand, amounting to
$ri,0W. nnd his property, and that the re
mainder of the def ilcatlon, amounting to
about $175,000, will bo p ild by his bonds
men. The commltteo of adjustment will
comprise Governor bheldon. Attorney Gen
eral Crawford nnd I.ind Commissioner
Lockh irt. Hy the understanding Taylor
will then plead guilty and take a two
years' sentence with the assurance of a

suggesting that It would be a good plan
for tho government to detail a man from
tho geological sutvey to niako an examina

lofuse to allow whites to enter the Wushlta

always refused to allow tho whites to pros

It Is tho lmpiession In the dupaitment
that tho government has no authority to
make such an Investigation on un Indian

Cleveland, O, June 10. Delegates to tho
National Republican League are beginning
to arrive In the city, and by to-morrow It
Is expected that there will be quite, an
Inllux of strangers here. Among thoso
who arrived to-day was It. G, llvaus, Re
publican national committeeman from Min
nesota, and delegnte-at-large to tho con
vention from that btate, Mr, Kvans says
he thinks the convention will be the larg
est and most enthusiastic that has yet been
held, and he scouts tho Idea that there will
be a tight over the question of freu silver
coinage. Mr. Uvans has Just returned from
the Past, llelng Ubked whut he thought of
the Republican presidential question, hu
said Minnesota hud a candidate In the per.
son of Senator Cushman K. Davis, und,
while he was not a leader in the race, Min
nesota Republicans hone mutters will sa
shape themselves before next year ns to
make his nomination possible. In leply to
the question whom he considered tho
strongest candidate In the race at piesent,
Mr, llvans said: "McKlnley is by all odds
the strangest candidate. He his been In
the -ace longest. Ills character and record
are such that he will stand the test, no
matter how long he has to remain In the
contest before the convention Is held."
He said Reed, HarrUon und Allison were
all strong and able men and each was pos
itive of a considerable following.

While Senator L'lktns was In Morgan
town I asked him what he had to say
about the sundry reports lining him up on
next year's presidential nomination. I
llnd that he has been much annoyed by
the persistent effort to make it appear that
he Is engaging in u Harrison boom,
"It is not true," said Senator Elklns,
"that I have declared for General Harri
son, or that I am try lag to bring about bis
nomination. I do not know that he is a
man above all others to nominate. The
convention is a year off, and many things
may happen within a year.
"All this talk about men Is premature.
When the time comes the Republican party
will llnd the man and nominate him. You

Yesterday was a busy, happy nnd event
ful day In the history of the Independence
Avenue Methodist Ilplscopnl church, It
was the fifth nnnlvcrsary of tho dedication
of the church and the services both morn
nlg and evening were In keeping with the
occasion. At both services the tdlllce was
crowded to tho doors.
At tho morning service when the pastor.
Dr. Quayle, nsked the audience for help
In lifting a debt that had been on the
church a long time, there was a response
so prompt and so generous that over Jtri,
000 was raised in half nn hour. The re
sponses came In like a torrent nnd con
tlnucd until the announcement was made
that enough had come to meet all demands
and to pay all obligations. It was a re
sponse that was a record breaker for even
the liberal givers of that church and was
tho occasion of much congratulation that
the debt had been flnnlly. wiped out.
Tho members of Independence Avenue
church havo worked for several years cut
ting the debt down and have never stopped
trying to accomplish Just what was done
yesterday. Last evening at the service
they rejoiced greatly over the matter and
held a kind of prnlsc service In honor of
the nnnlvcrsary and talked of the best
line of work for the future. During the
past they have devoted some energy to the
raising of funds. Now, with the debt
cleareel away they have that extra energy
to be used In other llnes and they discussed
the different phases of church work on
which It could best be expended.
The men who bullded Independence Ave
nue church bullded better thnn they knew
and were wise In the location of the edi
fice. It Is the only church located on beau
tiful Independence boulevard. It stands in
the center of one of the largest and most
fashionable residence districts of the city
nnd has a wealthy congregation. Its mem
bership numbers ncnrly1,000 and ot that
number more than 300 hare been added
since the present pastor. Dr. "W. "A.
Quayle, took charge.
As It was an anniversary service the
usual order of things was laid aside nnd
the morning service consisted ot music,
a history of the church by Mr.
George W. Puller and nn address by Dr.
Quayle. Mr. Puller Is president of the
Commercial Club and Is also ono of the
members of tho olllclal board ot the church
nnd nn active worker In tho same. In his
address he fc ild:
"In 1SS3 I was a member of tho olllclal
board of Grand Avenue M. P. church. At
that time there was only one church In the
northeast part of the city. A committee of
live was appointed for the purpose- ot
building a mission, to bo under the control
of the Grand Avenue M. 13, chinch. Dur
ing the winter of 1S53-G cottage prayer
meetings weie held nt the home of Rrother
W, W. Kendall. On July 11, 1!SG, Moreley 's
hall was rented and a Sunday s-chool organ
ized w 1th Brother M P. Simmons as super
intendent, Hrothcr Price, now our presid
ing elder, preached for us. In the fall of
ISSt. the lot where our church ami pnrc-on-age
now stands was purchised at a cost
of J21.000. In December of that year woik
on tho chapel was begun. In the spring of
PS7 a tent was purchitcd and elected on
the lot where our main church now stands.
On December 17, 1SS7, the chapel being com.
pleted. It was dedicated, at a cost of .'!,
511.71, Including tho furniture, A church
organization was effected In January, 1SSS,
and the following October Rev, Dr. G. W.
Mllloi was called as our pastor, wo having
a supply during that summer. In March,
JSSS, sixty-four members were ttansfened
from the Gtand Avenue M, 13. church to
tho Independence Avenue M, 13. church,
nnd on April t. ISSS, the Ilrst olllclal board
was organized, In Jnnuaiy, 1SSD, a. build
ing and Unance commltteo was appointed
to build the main church, and In March of
that year work was begun. Tho cornet
stone was laid on June 19, 1SS9, by lllshop
Nlnde, During the summer of 1SSS the
parsonngo was built and furnished, at a
cost of JS.fiOO. Tho main church was com
pleted nnd furnished .it a cost of JST.,0i.
and was dedicated on tho Ilrst Sunday in
"Brethren and friends, if there are any
of you who have ever begun the organlza.
tlon nnd building of a now church, then
you can realize: tho work and struggle that
we havo encounteied. Dr. Miller remained
with us until October, ISO.', when he re
signed to accept a cull In tho Past. Dr.
Armstrong came to us In 1S9.', remaining
until July, H9I, when Dr. Quayle came to
us in the same month, nnd is still with us,
Brethren and friends, the building of this
church with the small membership that we
had was a great undertaking, und maybe
we bullded better than wo should nnd may.
be we bullded better than we know. Time
only can tell."
Addn by Ilr, Quayle.
Then followed tho address of tho pastor,
Rev, Dr, W, A. Quayle, who, among inany
happy remarks, said:
"A prisoner chained to a Roman soldier,
In a Roman cell, gives a shout of triumph,
A prison cell Is a place ot defeat. Ambi
tion dies there. The face of pain, the
haggard look, the wan cheek, the eyes
like those ot a hunted slave, these are the
occupants of a prison cell. Laughter Is a
forgotten accomplishment. But this pris
oner was condemned to die. The prison
was the last halt on the march to his exe
cution. All this but aggravates the wonder
of his triumphant utterance. His own con
dition was deplorable; not a last ray of
sunshine finds him there. But the clank
ing of his chains seems to spur him, not
to dismay, but to Joy. Paul cries exultant
ly 'but the word ot God is not bound,'
Ha thinks not of himself nor his condition,
save by glad antithesis, to declare that tho
Gospel is not bound as he. .
"Two things touch us here. This Is one
of the glories ot the church of God, Its
life is not from man nor dependent on man.
Men may die; but their death or defeat '.3
a concomitant of the Imperial triumph
of the cause they love. God's cause is fore
doomed for triumph. 'Read ecclesiastical
history. The ministers of the Gospel havo
often been bound, but the church was an
unfettered glaut. The worker dies, the
work goes on. How true that Is! Many
the time when the death of some great
leader seemed to insure disaster to God's
cause, but tbe tears were scarce dried front
Ihe fice of the weeping church ere triumph
named up the sky llkp n tuclcor
".So the greit men havo died, one by one,
their glft, their faculty for oiRnnlratlon,
their catholicity of sentiment, their pa
tience nnd courage hnve become pirt of
Ihe nnnnls of the world's best living. Hut
the word of God hns known neither nge,
falling power, nor death, hut has had rath
er the eternal jouthhood ot a God. Note,
loo. In addition to the nhove named element
of comparative personal Inconsequence,
that of personal subordination. Devotion
forgets Itself Some life lies dead on Ihe
altar or every great c.aue This man Is
bound, bill the cnue for which he suffers
the caue for which he suffers bec-iuse the
'Word ot God' Is not bound God's cause
Is gri tier thnn any mnti Herein ec the
prW of a triumphant advocacy, self lost
and even forgotten.
"The province of it great Idea Is to make
room for Itself. The Gospel Is tho greatest
thought known to man. It, like u great
man, makes mom for Itself, Christ in ide
room for Himself. Heat cpinds, dilves
oiitunid, hates binlers, despises limita
tions. Good gospel Is tho he it of God's
heart. It wants the wot Id from a shr-'lo
central point. It drives outwaid to the
frontiers of earth, over thum und Into
htaven. The Woid of God Is not bound.
Paul's gospel slew tho empire which slew
him. Christ is bound before tho high
pilest, Herod and Pilate, but I'll ite nnd
Herod and high pi list are dead and thcli
graves forgotten, but Christ, behold He
Is alive foi evermoto, and of Ills kingdom
shall thcro be perpetual Increase. Jesus,
bound In the gtave, awakens nnd death and
untitle and gove rnments uein nothing of
Impediments but rather enhanced His
triumph. The 'Word of God,' what hos
tilities has It not awakened Tho kings
of tho earth hot themselves, the rulers
tako counsel agilust the Lord, but Ho
that sitteth In the heavens shall laugh,
tho Lotd shall have them In derision, 'Iho
Word of God Is not bound. Tho cross
could not slay It but gavo It life. Con
tumely, persecution, ridicule, decrees of
councils, decrees of kings, these were
brought to nought. God conquering I3gypt
at the crossing of the sea is a symbol of
Cods oveirldlng wlutsoever was hostile
to tho Gospel ot His Son, This church
whose unnlversary this d ly wo celc-brate
Is a token of this growing triumph, A hall,
a tent, a Sunday fchool, a chapel, a h ind
ful of members, but now a noble cathedial
for worship, n gient membership und one
of Ihe great congregations ot Methodism.
Surely wo ourselves must know tho Word
of God Is not bound. In this anniversary
you feel the mighty thiobblng of the
unlvusal triumph of God's cause.
"When this great prisoner gavo this
dictum It was but a theory ho enunci
ated. But what was theory then Is history
now, uvtr und over at-aln whilu th
centuries passed have wo teen that no
chains were forged which could bind tho
t'htlstiau church. You will lecall tho
graphic natratlve of 'Hen Hur," In which
when Messala's panting steeds forged
felowly to the front thu Roman adherents
shouted with wild clinior. Move with us,
Jovo with us,' and we living In a better
day, when Jovo huh been In his grnvo
for centurit-s, when the cross hath
wrought havoo with all the heathen deities
we, with the triumph of our God befoie
pur eyes and His extending empire gladden
ing our vision and with this unnlversary
'ay, making glad our hearts, we cry,
'God with us, God with us.' for If 'God
be for us who can bo against us''"
At 12 05 p. in, Dr, Quayle. having con
cluded his address, closed tho llilde and
stated tlmt a church debt of J15,0otj tell due
on July 1, prox., und that beforu the close
of tho seivice he desired 1,000 shares of J10
each to bo subscribed, and in thlity min
utes thereafter the entlio amount was
rulseeh The removal of this debt brings u
new Inspiration Into the church; Its mem
bership has caught the feeling that per
vades the entire city. Improvement Is tho
wutchvvoid at eery coinei, and what
beemed hi many minds un impossibility
was accomplished with scarcely an effort
and with no tioubio whatever, It closed
tho ser Ice.
Iho Jublle.i be r vice.
Last evening tho service was In the na
ture of a jubilee. Tho attendance was very
largo, and the house was crowded. A
splendid musical programme was furnished
by tho double quartette, composed ot Mi's.
J. D. Cox, Miss Maiy N. Blng, Miss Mar
guret Home, Mrs. 13 A. Burnett. Mr. W.
If. Ormsby. Mr, W. H. Potter. Mr. 13. K.
Chaffee and Mr. Wallace Guilford
Then followed a conference of the mem
bership as to the future ot the church,
nnd In what line Hie grentesl work nnd the
most good may be accomplished. The pa

handled tho subjects In a. broad and coni

"How C-in Women Help?" was discussed
by .Mr. James 11. Garnsey. Ho wns In
formed of tho work of the women In tho
past and thought It proved they not only
could but had helped at many critical
thin and helneil lu the most valuablo
manner. He thought the greater work of
tho women was In tho religious training of
thu young, the visiting of the sick anil
the carrying of messages of comfort nnd
cheer to those in distress. They coulel
frame and fix tho social standing of the
church and glvo it life and vitality and
force. There wero many places vvheru their
kindly olllces could be used In a powerful
way. The women hail ever been foremost
In every good work and in tho future
would no doubt be tho same.
"How Can Men Help" wns to havo
been discussed by Mrs. William Weston,
but sho was ill and her pi ice was taken
by Dr Quayle, He mixed witty remarks
very llberaliv with his talk and touched
upon some fashlonnble foibles In a very
sarcastic nnnner. Ho thought It would be
a good thing for men to help by practicing
piety seven days In the week, especially
on the six dais they were In business.
Then they ought to practice Christianity
at homo Just the same as though they
were awny irom nomo anu on auuuiy, it
would be a great thing, he thought, for
men to all be consistently pious at home.

There should bo a cordial greeting for
strangeis ut the church and elsewhere and
professors ot religion should not gut so
tired on Sunday they could not attend
church, but iccover lu lime to go on with
business on Monday.
Mr. P.H Young told how- the Sunday
school coulel help and Miss Sarah Green
