Foster Saturday afioruoon issued a circu

to reserving the resnlue of the -t'-f per
cent, loan for adjustment within the fis
cal year -which begins on the 1st day of
July next, public notice is hereby given
that redemptions of the bonds of that
loan will be discontinued for the present,

which such redemptions have been made,
is hereby rescinded. Dua public notice
will hereafter be given of the action, of

Secretary Foster's plans of deferring
the redemption of 4'-' per cent, bonds at
the date of maturity tept. 1) meets with
favor ia financial circle, many of the
mt prominent financiers and capitalists
of the country having indicated by letter
and in per soual interviews with the sec
retary their approval of his scheme. Thu
plan carries with it the redemption of
these bonds at the pleasure of the govern
ment after proper notice, and until they
are thus called in they are to draw 2 per

ing. Mint Director Leech on the finances.
Director rf the Mint Leech has made
public a statement on the fiuancial condi -tion
of the treasury in which, among
other things, he says that the amount of
money in the treasury of the United
States on the first of this month was over
$731,000000, of which 4'J3.O30,OOO was
"trust money'' held for the redemption cf
gold, silver, and currency certificates, and
the balance of fJo8,000,o.:0 belonged to the
treasury "just as absolutely as any prop
erty which the government owns."
No Cause for Concern.
That the secretary should consider it wise
to convert all his assets into the most avail
able money, ud to this end convert tLe
lirge amount of subsidiary s;irer ca.n
into lawful money, and that he siion;d
draw in from the national bank depo-ito-ries
money which may be needed by tLe
government "seems eminently proper,
and should excite no concern;" that the
ouly heavy expenditure chargeable to the
last congress which the treasury is feel
ing now is the relund of the direct tax;
and -that the receipts from custom are
falling off solely because of the
removal of the duty oa sugar, the benefit
of which the people are getting in the
lower price of that article.''
SAT DOWN ON THE SCHEME.
The Inter-State Commerce Commission
Mop a Discriminative Combine.
Washington Cittt, April 27. The inter
state commerce commission has in an
an opinion .by Commissioner Bragg, de
cided the case of Jacob Shamberg against
the Delaware. Lackawanna and Western
Railway company, and the New York,
Chicago and Si. Louis Railway company
ia favor of the complainant. The points
involved were briefly as follows: A firm
cf cattle dealers in the city of New York,
who procured their cattle on a large
scale ftom Chicago and other western
points for domestic consumption as well
as for export, made an arrangement with
two interstate rail carriers, constituting a
through iiue from Chicago to New York,
that the firm will, under the name
of an express company of their own
creation, furnish not less than &J0 nor
more than 4(0 improved live stock cars
f jr the transportation of these cattle.
Given extraordinary Facilities.
For the rental of these improved stock
cars the carriers pay this express compa
ny J of a cent per mile, whether loaded
or empty. Extraordinary facilities and
rights of way are given these cars to en
able them to make a large mileage, and
they make more than twice the mileage
of ordinary stock cars. Besides this the
carriers pay 30 cents for the loading of
each of the cars with cattle at the Union
stock yards in Chicago, for which no
charge is made against the express com
pany or the firm represented by it. In
addition to this the carriers pay this firm
vardage at the rate of S'- cents per 100
)ounds on all their cattle and upon all
other cattle hauled for other firms ia the
cars of this firm owning the express com
pany to its yard at New York.
Nice Thins 'or the "Express" Company.
This yardage charge is thus paid to the
l.rm by the carriers for keeping their cat'
tie in the firm's own yards after delivery
cf them to the firm, and then this yarn
age charge is deducted from the tariff
rate charged by the carrier. The amount
cf these rebates to this firm in rates on
taese cattle by these carriers more than
t ays the entire cost of the improved stock
cars within two years after operations are
commenced with them, including the e
penses of operation, leaving the firm own
ing the cars and still operating them
with ail these advantages in rates and
Decision of the Commission.
The commission holds that this is an
unlawful preference to the firm owning
ti e improved stock cars, and a violation
o! the interstate commerce law, and that
it is an unlawful and unjust prejudice to
oiher cattle firms and dealers in New
Y ork who are competitors in the business
o! the firm owning the improved stock

THE WALLA WALLA DIVERSION.

That Vs Lynched.
Walla Walla. Wash., April 27. The
report that a number of people were in
jured at the lynching of D. J. Hunt, the
slayer of Private Miller, here Friday
nii;ht are without foundation. The
latest particulars are that early in the
evening the sheriff learned that ,n at
tempt would be made to lynch Hunt.
He at once went to the garrison and told
the commanding officer what he feared.
This officer promised to help the sheriff in
every way. In the meantime the sheriff
hastened to the court house and swore in
Dynamite Mas Too Mnch for Them.
Ail of them had not arrived when a
crowd of seventy soldiers arrived at the
jail. The soldiers commanded the jailers
to open the doors. This was refused aud the
soldiers at once beaa to break
ia the doors. The work was rather
slow, and a threat was made to use dyua
mite. The guards then opened the doors
and gav up the keys to the cells. The
soldiers sooa found Hunt and dragsed
him to the jail-yard, where he was rid
dled with bullets. The soldiers theu re
turned to their barracks.
