FOXY SILVER FIGHT
TO BE MADE AT ST. LOUIS BY THE
WHITE METAL FORCES IN
STANDARD OF SOLID GOLD.
THEY WILL OFFER A MONOMETAL
LIC PLANK AND FORCE A
NO EVASION TO BE PERMITTED.
Silver Men Determined Republicans
Shall Go on Record as For or
CHICAGO, May 23.—A Washington special
to the Post says: The free silver delegates to
St. Louis will not bolt. Such, at least, is the
present intent. The present purpose is for
the silveiites to make their fight on the plat
form, take no part in the nomination of a
ticket (being mute when it comes to ballot
ing) and then make such combinations and
alliance afterwards as will give greater prom
ise of future Influence. It is barely possible
that they will amend the second clause of the
proposition, and Instead of refraining from
balloting, "plunge" on Senator Don Cameron
and make a fight for him in their respective
But the most Interesting feature of the pro
gramme remains to be told. The silver dele
gates will have a representation of eight or
nine on the committee on resolutions, includ
ing such fighters as Teller, Dubois, Carter and
Cannon. These men will make as big a fight
as they can in the committee, and will, of
course, be outvoted overwhelmingly. They
will then proceed to formulate a minority re
port, but it will not declare for free silver.
It will be an out-and-out gold . platform. It
will pronounce for gold monometallism In the
most specific terms and in the strongest lan
guage that can be employed. If the silver
delegates cannot secure the recognition of
silver, they propose to force the convention to
go on record for or against a gold standard.
"If the convention is bent on taking gold,"
said a Mountain state senator, who will be a
delegate at St. Louis, "we will give it a
chance to take the refined article, so that
there will be no doubt as to the quality."
G. A. R. ENTERTAINMENT
To Be Held In the St. Louis Convcn- I
ST. LOUIS, May 23.—The St Louis mem
bers of the G. A. R. have made arrangements
to give a grand entertainment in the conven

ried out on a broad scale, and several men of
national reputation will deliver addresses,
among whom will be Chauncey M. Depew.
The proceeds will be used for the benefit of
the orphans and old soldiers' home, at St.
James, Mo. An opportunity will be thus af
forded thousands to see the great convention

CHINA TRADE. LL
It Expanded During the War With
WASHINGTON, May 33.—United States
Minister Denby, at Pekin, in reporting upon
the trade of China for 1895, directs attention
to the fact that the late war with Japan failed
to Injure China's trade with the outside world,
and that trade really expanded during the
year, notwithstanding the loss of Formosa and
the closing of the New Chwang custom bouse
for several months. With the United States
the trade was less than in 1894, but was great
er than for any other year in the preceding
eight years. The exports to the United States
in 1895 were $15,853,320, and imports from the
United States $5,494,642, $3,000,000 being in
kerosene. The imports of Russian oil exceed
ed those from America for the first time, prob
ably owing to the heavy imports of American
oil in the preceding year, which left a large
stock held over.
In the matter of Internal development there
has been no want of progress, though the ex
pectations of foreigners that the old Chinese
conservatism would be broken down as the
result of the war were not completely real
ized. The Chinese are endeavoring to con
trol their own railroads by allowing only
Chinese money to be used in their construe-
tlon, but this policy must in the end, and
wherever long lines of road are concerned,
give way to foreign syndicate operations.
Meanwhile many agents of the American
financiers and builders of railroads and rolling
stock are now in China awaiting the an
nouncement of definite plans by the imperial
government, and at least two great American
combinations stand ready to build and equip
any railroad system China may desire.
While much may be done towards introduc
ing American ships, armor and guns In
China, If manufacturers will keep agents
there steadily, Mr. Denby does not recom
mend the present investment of American
capital in the establishment of industries
until the grave question shall be settled of the
exemption of such foreign factories from tax
Touching the silver question, Mr. Denby
says: "It is safe to say that it will be many
years before native-made goods will drive
foreign manufacturers out of the country. The
silver question cuts both ways: The merchant
buys in China for stiver and sells In Europe
and America for gold, and necessarily gains
largely. On the other hand, he buys in Eu
rope and America for gold and sells in
China for silver. Universal bimetallism would
be welcomed by many foreign merchants resid
ing in China. It is scarcely necessary to say
that not one favors "free silver" for his coun
GEN. FAIRCHILD DEAD.
Ex-Commander of the G. A. R. Passed
Away at Madison.
MADISON. Wiss., May 23.—Gen. Lucius
Fairchild, commander-in-chief of the Loyal
Legion, and ex-commander of the G. A. R.,
died at 6:30 tonight at his residence in this
city. Gen. Fairchild has suffered from the
effects of grippe for several weeks, and a
month ago the ailment was complicated by
kidney trouble. Until five days ago it was
thought he would recover. At noon today
there was a change for the worse, and at 4
o'clock he sank into a comatose condition,
and did not regain consciousness. His wife
and daughters were present when the end
came. No arrangements have been consid
ered for the funeral.
They May Do Violence to Mr. Hogn
hoom at Hot Springs.
HOT SPRINGS, Ar.k., May 23.—Ed Hoga
boom, proprietor of the City Savings Bank
and Trust company, of Hot Springs, which
recently failed, with liabilities of nearly
$175,000, and whose whereabouts have been
a mystery, returned here today, and as soon
as his presence here became known he was
besieged by a clamorous crowd of creditors.
Depositors in the bank who had lost all
their savings in the defunct Institution, fair
ly swarmed around Hogaboom's residence
and several stormy interviews between de
positors and the president took place. Ex
citement was very high and the opinion was
freely expressed that violence would be done
Mr. Hogaboom, but this is hardly probable.
Mr. Hogaboom has, since his absence from
Hot Springs, been spending his time quietly

not know what condition his affairs here are
in, but will try to straighten them out.
Said to Hare Inaugurated a Reign
MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 23.—The Mer
chants' and Manufacturers' association held a
meeting this afternoon, at which it was de
clared that the street railway strike boyoott
had produced a reign of terror unlike any
thing known before in the city's history, and
that method of forcing a settlement of the
strike was strongly condemned. The associa
tion called upon all good citizens at once to
cease to use or submit to this objectionable
.weapon, and to exercise their independence as
citizens. The mayor was requested to call the
attention of those responsible for the boyoott
to the statute of the state, which provides a
punishment for this misdemeanor, and the
civil authorities were asked to exercise all
their power tor the detection and punishm^

consideration of conference reports. The final
report of the river and harbor bill, carrying
the compromise proposition relative to the

rival Santa Monica and San Pedro harbors,
California, was adopted Without division. The
bill now goes to the president. As finally
passed, it carries $12,850,000 in direct appropri

of $59,649,000. The final report on the execu
tive, legislative and judicial bill was also
adopted. The bill as it goes to the president
carries $21,520,000, $370,000 less than the bill of
last year. The sundry civil and Indian appro
priation bills were sent *ack to conference.
By a vote of 154 to 22 the house insisted on

Mr. Howard (Pop., Ala^), the author of "If
Christ Came to Congress," at the opening of
the session of the house, sprung a sensation,
but it was short-lived. The house, with prac
tical unamity, suppressed him. As soon as
the journal was read, Mr. Howard, whose seat
is in a distant part of the hall, rose dramatic
ally in the center aisle, and, flourishing a
paper in his hand, demanded to be heard on a
resolution, which he sent to the clerk's desk.
The resolution was as follows:
"I do impeach Grover Cleveland; president
of the United States, of high crimes and mis
demeanors, on the following counts:
"First—That he has directed the sale of
bonds without authority of law.
"Second —That he sold or aided in the sale
of bonds at less than their market value.
"Third —That he directed the misappro
priation of the proceeds of said bond sales.
"Fourth—That he directed the secretary of
the treasury to disregard the law which
makes United States notes and treasury notes
redeemable in coin.
"Fifth—That he "has ignored and refused to
have enforced the 'anti-trust law.'
"Sixth—That he has sent United States
troops into the state of Illinois without au

That the committee on judiciary be directed

and if so to report to the house such action,

When the clerk ceased reading, Mr. How
ard, who had arisen to address the house,
was suddenly taken off the floor by Mr.
Dingley, the floor leader of the* majority, who
raised the question of consideration against
the resolution. The question was promptly
put by the speaker, and by a practically
unanimous vote the house declined to give
Mr. Howard a hearing.
Mr. Sherman (Rep., N. V.), chairman of the
committee on Indian affairs, presented the
conference report on the Indian appropriation
bill. The report agreed to all the items save
those relating to the continuation of the
Dawes' commission, the sectarian school ques
tion and the old settlers' resolution. The re
port was adopted. Mr. Sherman then moved
that the house concur in the senate amend
ment relating to sectarian schools. By both
the house and tho seriate amendments, Mr.
Sherman explained, the policy of doing away
with sectarian schools was enunciated. The
difference between the two provisions was that
the house paragraph out off appropriations for
sectarian schools Immediately, while the senate
amendment proposed to allow provision for
sectarian schools to continue for two years.
The motion, was lost—B4 to 99.
Mr. Hainer (Rep., Neb.) moved that the
house conferees insist on tho house provision
and the motion was carried on a rising vote—
115 to £5. On Mr. Fitzgerald's demand, a
record vote was taken, resulting 154 to 22,

afternoon. As soon as the house had agreed
to the conference report the committee
on enrolled bills went to work to see that the

no easy task, but as a result of continuous

MARQUETTE, Mich., May 23.—There Is Ut
ile probability that the village of L'Anse will

weeks ago wiped out half the town. Many
business men who sustained loss will not re
build, but the most discouraging fact of all
