Phil Armour, tbe great meat million
aire, aaid in speaking of tbe action of tbe
packers in raining tbe price of canned
meats and lard: "It is the McKinley law.
Though I am a republican I don't like it.
Until it is repealed the price of goods
must go up and the consumer must pay
for the extra expanse we are pnt to."
Duhino tbe recent campaign there was
much loud talk of a new tin-plate manu
factory to be erected at Pittsburg brought
about by tbe blessings of tbe McKinley
bill in practically keeping tin-plate out
of the market. But now tbe election is
over and there being no necessity for
trying to gull the pe. pie any longer in
that line, tbe mythical factory has been
abandoned, and tbe people will still have
to pay tribute to some other country.

ln town is full to overflowing with refu
gees from country districts. Most intense
excitement prevails in tbe country, and
settlers are prepared to believe anything
about Indiana, because of their queer ac

yesterday afoot, a distance of twenty
miles and over, too poor to own wagons.
Ia town somewhat less tension exists, ow

state (iovernment, and tbe fact that a
company of soldiers Is coming here from
Fort Totten. Last night there were 2t
Indians in town armed, bnt the citizens
are armed, too, and patrols were out and
people slept with their clothes on.
As Bad as the Indiana.
A date will be fixed by a committee of
citisens, and Indian agents notified that
after that - date any Indian found in this
county without a pass from an agent will
be killed on iKht. The population is thor
oughly aroused and although conserva

angry populace, there U every reason to
believe that unless the government takes
immediate steps to increase the force M

Nearly 100 settlers were on a train last

to each settlement iu the county. Tele

the excitement in town Is subsiding be
cause of the presence of plenty of gnna
agitation in the country is worse than

"Washkotom ClTT, Nov. 1$ The treas
urer of tbe United States, Hon. James N.
Huston, has submitted to Secretary Win
dom his report on tbe operations and
conditions of the treasury for the fiscal
year ended June 40, 1S90. - The net ordin
ary revenues amounte-) to $403, 080 982.63,
a snm bnt twice exceeded In the history
of tbe government The increase over
ths year before was $16,030 925 TO, of
which $11,735,10L& came from the in
ternal revenue. The ordinary expendi
tures were t-'97,73a,4Sn.60, an increase of
15,739.871 over those of the year before.
The growth of tbe revenues was therefore
a little greater than that of the expendi
tures, and there would have been a fall
ing off in the latter but for the increase in
ttarploa Reveoaee Gold aad Silver.
The surplus revenues were (105,844,
496.03, of which r-. 304, f 4.06 was paid out
In premiums on bond purchases. The
mount of gold in tbe treasury increased
during tbe year from $003,887,719 79 to
$S.'0.93S.145 02. and the silver from $31
10,779 &8 to $346,821,0116 09. Exclusive of

The liabilities decreased during the year
from $lS7,t,8S0.64 to $107,121,718 34. and
the reserve, being the excess of assets over

to $1T9.3oO,li07.39. The total obligations of
the treasury on alt accounts were
$1,810,678.475 06 on June 80, 188, and
$1,722,240,163.03 on June 80, 189a Tbe

thirty millions of 4f per cento were pur
chased. Increase or Circulation.
Important changes took place in the
circulating medinm, but they Were of a
more favorable character than thosa of
the year before. There was a gain of
$15,000,000 in the stock of gold, an in
crease of $53 000,000 in that of silver, and
a contraction of $2o. 000.000 in the volume
of bunk notes, reuniting in a net increase
of $32,000,000 in tbe aggregate supply of
money. The total htock. including certif
icates of deposit as well as the gold,
a Iver, and notes held in tbe treasury for
their redemption, is estimated to have in
creased from $2,099,908,718 to $2,170,107,

atock less the amount in the treasury,
from $1,387,351,835 W $1,443,083,618. In

Othera Matters Considered.
In view of the prominence which the
money circulation and the relations of the
treasury thereto have assumed iu pnblic
discussion, the treasnrer thinks the time
opportune for presenting information of
a kind to throw light on the subject. Ac
cordingly he explains with care the effect
which tbe operations of tbe treasury have
upon the circulating medium, how tbe
stock iu the couutry is ascertained, and
how the amounts of the several kinds of
currency in the hands or control of the
people is arrived at. He gives voluminous

years, which show the issues, redemp

kind or United States paper currency by

O'E RIEN ON THE PARNELL CASE.
Attacks oa the Leader Benenth Notice
bpeeolatloa la England.
Bot ton, Nov. 19. William O'Brien, tbe
Irish envoy, in an interview yesterday,
said he regarded the at tacks of the Tory
newspapers of London against Parnell as
beneai b notice. For tbe post ten years
tbe same papers bad attempted to assas
siuate Parnell'a character, not in ths
least from any motive of pnbiic moral
ity, but on account of his unrivaled lead
ership. All O'Brien knew of the O'Shea
matter waa that "O'Shea ia a loathsome
creature who ia capable of anything."
Tbe Irish party and tbe Irish peopie,"
said h, "may be trusted to safeguard the
Interests of the Irish cause, without tbe
least rvgard to rumors set afloat by mor
alists like Pigou's employers."
Telegrams from London give the follow
ing comment: "ibe Nationalists chief
cause for irritation agaiust Parnell arises
from t be fact that hs allowed tbem to
place themselves In a position which now
turns cot to bava been a ridiculous one,
by p edging themselves In support of bia
innocence at tbe time when tbe rumors of
the O'Shea scandal first began to be cir
culated. They argue that if Parnell did
not intend to defend himself in the courts,
but to practically admit his guilt, he
should have given his friends an intima
tion of what was to come, eo that they
could h ave earlier begun to pooh-pooh the
idea that his private life had any thing to
do with his political leadership, and thus
prepare tbe public for the attitude which
they are now forced to take, aod Wuich
involves a complete somersault from
their foimr position.
How About tha Grand Old ManT
"Thens ia great curiosity to see how
Gladstoie will treat Parnell since the
acandal came out. The Globe declares
tht tbe Grand Old Man will ahock. tbe
public it' he continues to display personal
friendship for this two-penny Don Juan.'
However this may be, Gladstone h said to
be much depressed by tbe evidence in tbe
divorce case. Ha is a man of tbe most
atrict idia in regard to family obliga
tions, and tbe O Shea trial has coma on

Conflicting Views Retarding tho Plaea

Chicago, Nov. 19 At the meeting of
tbe national commissioners of the World's
Columbian exposition yesterdsy a resolu
tion offered by Commissioner McKentie,
3f Kentuck', wss adopted referring all
questions relating to the site to tha regu
lar standing committee on buildings and
rounds. 1 be situation in regard to site
teems to be nearly aa mixed as it was be
fore the last meeting of tbe commission.
The local directorate, by a decisive ma
jority, la ln lavor of holding the principal
part of the f sir where tbe people of this'
city, as wel. eg those who coma from
abroad, can most readily reach tbe
rounds, and that ia unquestionably tbe
lake front, a locality that every street
railway line and all the other railways
practically ntdiate from.
The Suburban Site.
The national commission, backed (of
Soorse without tbeir connivance) by a
number of r-al estate dealers who are In
terested ia looming the land in the lo
cality, want to make the lsks front only 4
"gatewsy" t nd bold most of the fair
sight miles from the center of tbe city,
and ten to twelve miles from a large por
tion of tbe I orth aod west sides, and in
lome cases a ride of an hour awl a halt

The advocates of this latter plan urge
It because of the fact that but 100 acres
of ground cat be obtained on the lake
frocL which it undoubtedly not sufficient

the directors i sslre to place there, which

Niw Yobk, Nov. 19. Tbe greatest war
ship and armored steel ernlaer combined
that ever yet floated nnder the stars aod
stripes was successfully launched at ths
Brooklyn nvy yard shortly after noon
yesterday. ' At an early honr great crowds
of Invited guests entered the navy yard
aod began taking their places on ths stag
ing erected for their accommodatioa. Ev
erything was profusely decorated. Tbs
great hull of the Maine rested on Iu stays,
while carpenters with their saws aod
hammers stood by in readiness to cut
away the timbers which restrained It
from sliding Into the waters of ths East
Baptised with Wlae aad Water.
Secretary Tracy arrived li due time
and was received with a salute of nine
teen guns. Shortly after, to tbe strains
of the "Star Hpaogled Banner, tha
Mains swept down the Incline, a great
cheer arising aa she went, and as at tha
moment of starting Miss Wilmerdlng,
niece of Secretary Tracy, broke a bottle
of champagne over the bow of tbe veassl
and said: "I cbriaten tbea tbe Maine."
Tbe great bull went down like a flash
and In an instant waa afloat In her natur
Blgnifloanee of the Event.
The fact that tbe Maine baa boen thus
far constructed entirely by the United
States government and not by private
contract waa in itself sufficient to make
the occasion an interesting and impor
tant one, but even that fact aside, tbe
day marks another and a giant stride ia
the renewed life of an invaluable branch
of tbe national service. The launching of
the Maine means that a new maritime
monster has been let loose on the sea to
maintain, and defend, if need be, whether
at home or abroad the honor of ths flag
it sails nnder and the rights of the people
it represents, and that by the time it U
fully equipped and ready to go into com
mission it will be amply able to do all
that is expected of it, and cope with any
foe on equal terms.
Both Crnlsor and Fighter.
The Maine, although called a cruiser. Is
alo a war ship, aod is built to hold her
own agaiust w ar ships. She is not a revo
lution iu naval architure, but is rather a
development, and ao far as this country ia
ooneerned is the one illustration of the
highest stage of development recorded ia
the era which began when the little Moni
tor was sent down to Hampton Roads to
put an end to to the destructive perform
ances of tbe then confessedly invincible
Merrimac. The Maine, twenty years ago,
could have faced tbe war ships of the
world and have swept them out of exist
ence, one after the other, with compara
Her Rise aad Araaaaaaat.
The Maine is 334 feet over all, f.T feet ex
treme bread h, aod has a mean draught
Otiiyi feet. Her displacement is fl.ttSi
tons, and she will have a speed of 17 knots.
She will bave twin screws, which will be
driven by engines with 9.9J0 horse-power,
making ISi revolutions per minute. Her
armament will consist of four ten-inch,
six six inch, and a secondary battery of
four six-pound rifled guns, eight three
pound guns, two one pound guns, four
thirty-seven revolving cannon, four gat
ling guns, seven torpedo tubes. Four of
these guns are to be placed la tbe cruiser's
turret, two ln each.
What Her Guns Can Do.
Either ten- inch gun is capable of bnrliag
a 500-pound steel ball at tbe rale or X.0UO
feel per second a distance of nins miles,
or, as nun np in gunnery say. an "effec
tive" distance of nine miles. That means
that thone enormous gnns can be so deli
cately adjusted as to insure, with proper
handling, the striking of a target nine
miles away, even though the target Itself
can not be seen, its position being merely
indicated by some other object. The
moats of a hostile vessel, for example, are
in aight nine miles away, but tha hull Is
below the horixon. Perhaps no masts are
seen nothing but tbe smoke from the
smokestack. Even that Is often sufficient
to indicate to ths practiced eys ths precise
position of tbe vessel's deck.
Xo Boardlaa- la tho Fatare.
One of tbe big guns is trained and in
leas than half a minute later. If all calcu
lations bs correct and tha aim be trus
sed In modern warfare nothing is Isft to
chance a 5o() pound steel cannon ball
will tumble with an unceremonious and
all-destructive crash on ths deck of that
hostile veasjL nine miles away. Long
distance combala will probably be pre
ferred at aea hereafter, especially aa the
projectiles referred to are warranted to
fierce, at 1.000 yards, ths armor of almost
sue Will Ba the Flaa-enta.
The Maine is easily the largest vessel In
the United States navy, bnt not the larg
est in the world. England has oos or two
just ons site larger for great war ships
corns in sixes and there are a few of this
larger aisa elsewhere In the civilised
worid. This government is now making
arrangementa to have two of tbe extra
large site cruisers built, but it will take
five years to construct them, and that
will givs the Mains at least three years to
enjoy the honor of being at ths bead of
thp American navy and to be las admi
ral's flag ship.
