, Washington, July 80 One of the
most interesting unsolved problems in
Washington to-day is the question
whether Mr. Hoke Smith, of'Gcorgl.i,
has resigned or is about to resign us
secretary of the Interior. There is n
widely prevailing impression that the
president's notion Wcdnesdnyin se
lecting a West Virginia man at the re
quest of Postmaster General Wilson
for Union Pacific railroad director, an
oflice under the control of the interior
department was intended as a direct
snub to Secretary Smith, and was
meant to bo so regarded by him, espe
cially as thero docs not appear to have
been tiny pretense made by the presi
dent of asking tho advice of the secre
tary of tho interior on the matter.
Mr. Cleveland's known views against
tho freo coinage of silverware entirely
in accord with those expressed by his
secretary of tho interior in his recent
joint discussion with cx-Spoaltcr Crisp,
in Georgia. 15ut the fact that Mr.
Smith's newspaper, tho Atlanta Jour
nal, has since como out in favor of
Bryan and Sewall and freo silver, and
tho further fact that-Mr. Smith himself
is advertised to open the campaign in
favor of Bryan and free silver at
Augusta, Ga., en the 12th of August
next, have naturally revived the
rumors that Mr. Smith's resignation
will either bo requested or enforced
within a very few days. Secretary
Smith, being asked Wednesday evening
whether it was truo that he proposed
to go to Gray Gables for consultation
with President Cleveland prior to en
tering on the Georgia campaign, de
clined to make any statement for pub

Buda Pkst, July 80. A powder mag
azine at Funfkirehen, capital of tho
county of Baranya, exploded Thursday
morning with fatal results. Tho shock
of tho explosion was terrific. Tho town,
hall was almost completely wrecked
and other buildings in the vicinity
were badly damaged. So farasknowrt
five persons were instantly killed and
80 seriously, some of them fatally,
Later investigation shows that tho
explosion was moro disastrous than
was at first reported. It is now known
that more than one hundred persona
were injured, and it is thought that a
largo proportion of them will die.
Some of tho buildings in the vicinity of
the magaiiie collapsed under tho ef
fects of the shocks, and there is reason
to believe that many of the inmates
were burned in the ruins. The munici
pal authorities, aided by the military,
are making every effort to clear away
thu rnins and rescue who may be im
prisoned beneath them. The magazine
was located but a short distance from,
the square in which the market is held.
Thursday was market day and the
square was crowded with rustics when
the explosion occurred. Among the in

struck tho coast defense warship Roma
and set lire to her. Thu fiames spread
rapidly in spite of the efforts of the

mander, seeing that they were ap
proaching the powder magazine, gave
orders to attach a torpedo to the hull
of the vessel and then for all hands to
abandon tho ship. When the small
boats containing the crew wero at a.
safe distance, the torpedo was- dis
charged, tearing a great hole in the
hull and causing tho Roma to quickly
sink. Nobody was hurt.
