THE ENGRAVING BUREAU TROUBLE
The Ohio Campaign To Be Made Means
of Revenge if f cretary Foster Refuse
to "Come Itwj VThat a Leader Say
6Ilver MeaMite an Addrcu Declar
ing Their Io the Chief One Before
the Country Free Coinage the Remedy
for All Financial. Evil.
Washington, June 22. Captain Mere
dith.of Chicago,?the superintendent of the
bureau of engraving and printing, is still
Laving a hot , controversy with the
Knights of Labor over the control of the
bureau. It seeroa to be a question wheth
er the bureau is to be managed by the
government or by the labor organization.
The labor leaders have now become quite
open in their threats of political ven
geance if their demands are not satisfied.
Say Foster Mast Surrender.
On of these leaders is quoted as saying:
fc,Ve have 35.000 coai miness belonging to
the knights in Ohio, and unless Secretary
Foster makes Meredith surrender and re
instate men who have been discharged, or
who have left, these 35,000 miners will
stampede against WKinley and defet
the lipublican ticket in Ohio. We'would
be more than pleased to have the president
call for Meredith's resigntition, but of
course we cannot expect that at present,
for the reason that the president sides
with Meredith in this trouble.
A Modification in Tone.
'But whether Meredith is made to walk
the plank or not, we won't be satisfied
till we get justice. The trouble has been
laid before Secretary Foster, and he seerjs
to be inclined to meet us bftlf way. Tue
secretary understands the gravity of the
situation, lie doesn't want the Knigtus
of Labor to antagonize the Republican
party in OUio this fall, and that is jut
what will lie done if we are not given jus
tice. At first we were gsven to understand
that those of our association who wer
dismissed by Meredith would not be
taken back under any consideration; that
rather than have them in the bureau he
would resign. Well, he has modified his
Determined to Have Justice.
' Secretary Poster says they will want
more plate printers in the bureau, and
that we can have our presses again if we
make application for appointment: that
the fact that we were discharged shall not
operate nniiist us in securing employment
in the bureau acain, provided we make
application lefore all the vacancies are
filled. This rs all very nice so far as the
secretary i concerned, . We are not worry
ing ourselves over the situation. We are
determined to have ju.ice, and will wait
a reasonable Unjrth of time before takins
serious action. Two of our representatives
have gone to Ohio, and will stampede the
35,000 miners from McKinley unless the
knights are n-loMatetl
Plea of.the silver men.
They Declare Free Coinage the FohAcal
Issue Above All Other.
New York, June 22. The National Ex,
ecutive Silver committee held meetings in
this city Friday and Saturday. The fol
lowing members were present: Gen. A. J.
Warner, of Ohio, chairman: Francis G.
Xewlands, of Nevada, vice chairman: Lee
Crandall, of Washington, D. C , secretary,
and L. W. Ramsay, of Missouri. The
lion. Edwards Iierpont was unable to be
present. Senators Jones ami Stewart, of
Nevada, were in consultation with the
committee during the sessions. Saturday
evening the committee issued an address,
in which it says: "The National Silver
committee desires to call the attention of
the country to the object lesson which
is being exhibited in the desperate strug
gle of the great financial institutions on
both sides of the Atlantic to increase the
gold reserves to avoid bankruptcy and
ruin, and that any increase by one neces
sarily diminishes the reserves of others.
The lla and Structure of Credit.
'For eighteen years the basis of credit in
gold standard countries has been growing
narrower as the single standard has been
extended and the production of gold
fallen off, while the structure of credit
has been growing proportionately larger
and more insecure, until the relation of
credit to actual money, as disclosed in the
Barings failure in gold-staudard England,
has alarmed the world and started anew
the scramble for gold that threatens all
business undertakings and stalks us a
menace to every legitimate enterprise.
Ri-metalinm the Remedy.
faThe remedy is in tlm restoration of bi
metalism. I'iace money system again
upon the broad basis of gold and silver es
the money of ultimate redemption instead
of gold alone. Support .tbe eredit struc
ture of the banks and the country by both
the metals under free and unlimited coin
age. A stable and not a fluctuating cur
rency is required by legitimate business.
Who can doubt that greater stability re
sides in money coined from the metals
automatically regulated than in credit de
vices that today are and tomorrow may be
The Paramount Isue,
The committee says this is the para
mount issue in this country, and should
be made such in the elections this year.
All other issues are involved in this and
cannot be separated from it.
THE ILLINOIS ELECTION LAW.
Gov. - l ife r Inclined to Believe the Omis
sion of a Section Fatal.
Srr.lXGFlELD, Ills., June 22. Diligent
search was made Saturday for the missing
section of the Australian ballot law, but
no trace of it can be discovered. Governor
Fifer had telegrams sent to Lieutenant
Governor Ray and Speaker Crafts, and
also to Enrolling and Engrossing Clerk of
the House Waggoner to come at once o
Springfield and endeavor to set the matter
straight. The governor is of opinion that
the omission of the section virtually kiiiS
the bill, and is Inclined to veto it rather
than have it go through in its present
Yt hat Speaker Craft Think.
CHICAGO, June 22. Referring to a tele
gram he had received from Governor
Fifer requesting his presence at Spring
field in connection with the trouble with
the new ballot law, ex-Speaker Crafts
said: "I do Dot think we neV worry, as I
am pretty positive that the W!l was passed
regularly. If it was not correctly en
rolled, why it simply has not been before
the governor in the form required by law.
It can be withdrawn awl I have notified
Mr. Waggoner, the house enrolling and

No Campbell Men from Cincinnati.
Cincinnati, June 22. The Democratic
primaries for delegates from Hamilton
county to the state convention were held
Saturday. The issue was betw.jen Camp
bell, the present incumbent, an i Neal, a
candidate for nomination for governor.
Mr. Miller, of the board of elections, said
that not a single Campbell delerate of the
seventy had been elected in Cincinnati,
and that over 5,000 votes were polled, which
is a large vote.
THE BASE BALL SITUATION.
Chicago Ha a Very Insecure Position a
Second Score of the Expert.
Chicago, June 22. There is 1 ttle that
is comforting for Chicago base ball en
thusiasts in the position of Anson's colts
at the close of the playing last wtek. It is
true that fortune favored the club, and
lifted it from third place, to which it bad
dropped, but Boston is only thre points
behind, whereas the week befo-e it was
fifty-four, while New York is eight points
better, as related to Chicago, than it was
the week before. The club standing is

SUSPECTED OF FOUL MURDER.
A 15-Vear-Old lioy Who May Fall Into
the Hands of Judge Lynch.
Dflano, Minn., June 22. The boly ot
Annie Bruuder, aged 13, was found ;i few
rods from the railroad track between
Montrose and Waver! y Saturday i.ight.
She lived about a quarter of a mile from
Montrose and had been to school and was
returning home Thursdny evening when
she was assaulted. Her parents supposing
she had spent the night with friends, were
not uneasy about her until Friday even
ing came, and as she had not yet returned
they became alarmed and at once insti
tuted a search. When found her hands
were tied behind her. her feet tiec to
gether and her apron tied tightly around
her face. Suspicion points strongl to
John Mazue, a 15-ye.ar-old boy of Mont
rose, and if it is confirmed he will proba
bly never be tried by jury.
Progress of the King Trial.
Memphis, Tenn., June 22. The triU of
Lawyer King for the murder of Lawyer
Poston is Hearing its end. The prisoner's
testimony regarding the shooting wa? lo
the effect that Poston applied offensive
epithets to him at the fatal meeting in
front of the cigar store; that Poston
started to draw a pistol before King shot,
and that the latter had no idea of shoot
ing Poston until the moment in which it
was done. The line of testimony of tk "
defense has b"vn to'prove insanity, and a
large numb, of witnesses have testified
that they believed him insane. The re
buttal, however, is very strong in the
other direction, both as to insanity .ind
the occurrence of the murder. Poston's
ante-mortem statement is explicit as to
the assertion that the shooting was done
without provocation at the time, whatever
King's grievance might have been for pre
Sullivan and Frank Slavln.
New Yoi:k, June 22. Frank Slavin
sailed for Knuland Saturday without ar
rnnging a fight with John L. Sullivan,
but matters are in train. (and it looks 1 he
a match would be arranged. It eamot
come off, however, until Sullivan gets
back from Australia. Slavin says he is
ready to light, and James Wakely end
Charles Johtson say that Sullivan is will
ing, and that they have posted a forfeit in
his liehalf. It is stated that some one yet
unknown has preferred charges against
Slavin and Mitchell under the alien lalor
law, charging that a pugilist is not an
artist, and therefore should not be allow ad.
to make contracts to come here and spar.
An Important Fact Just Noted.
LOKDON, June 22. Vienna has for the
past seven years been under martial la jv,
and very few people were aware of t be
fact. The reason nobody knew it is that
the ordinary laws were not interfered
with and the people went about their bus
iness without interruption. Only when
some anarchist or socialist has been at
tempting a disturbance did martial law
step in and seize and get rid of him. Tl
ban has just been removed and the an
nouncement of its removal created a mild
sensation as so few people knew of its ex
istence. Assassinated at His Own Door.
Pittston, Pa., June 22. Daniel Freast,
of Elmhurst a well-known and popular
young man, was called to his door by Bonn
unknown person Friday night and fatally
shot. There is no clew to his assailant.

The Detective Who Found Ills Hidinf,
Place Savagely Clubbed by an I'nknown
Man Sudden Attack with Pistols on
Party of Officers Who Went to Arrest
the Bank Wrecker A Previous Reeon
nolsance Shows the House To Be Some
SPRIKG Lake, N J., Jane 22. When
the Keystone bank at Philadelphia failed
the king bee of the whole rascally job,
Gideon W. Marsh, the president, disap
peared, and since then the officers have
been hunting him. Detective Max Fre
man was successful in running his man to
earth, and his success may possibly cost
him his life. Freeman came to this place
several days ago and stopped at the Carle
ton house, lie had received intimation
that Marsh had recently been seen in that
vicinity and was in hiding at Como, a re
sort just north of this plaee, owned chiefly
by his friend, Harry H. Yard. Freeman
consulted with Constable Michael Sexton,
and Friday the pair, in company with
Timothy Hurley, drove to the isolated
place where it was believed the missing
bank president was in hiding. The cot
tage is situated in the midst of a dens
wood.-, and was formerly owned by Yard.
For some time past it has not been occu
pied. A Hiding Flace Uncovered.
The trio made a careful survey of the
surroundings, after which the detective
entered the house through a window and
discovered that one room had been fitted
up and had been occupied recently. He
rejoined his companions and the three
men went to Belniar and consulted Jus
tice Hall as to whether they had authority
to enter the house forcibly and make ar
rests. The justice gave them an affirma
tive answer and the officers retnrned to
the house in the woods. They tied their
horses a short distance from the house
and then surrounded the cottage. Sexton
took a place on the side of rbe house near
est the road, while his companions stealth
ily approached the main entrance.
A Sudden and Vicious Attack.
They were about to step on the porch
when two men who were in hiding on
the stoop jumped up and began firing at
the officers. Freeman drew his revolver
and returned the fire. After emptying
their revolvers one of the unknown "men
approached tLe detective from behind and
gave him a terrible blow with a blunt
weapon. Freeman fell to the ground un
conscious. The assailants then took to
their heels and escaped in the woods. Sex
ton guarded Freeman while Hurley went
to Spring Lake for Dr. Trout. The phy-
5i$i-lSLi2 Sn0 and dreed the de
tective's wounds. It was found that he
was badly injured about the hips, and
t here wire several ld gihes on his head.
Positive Maish Was There.
He was removed to the doctor's office at
Spring Lake, where he now lies in a criti
cal condition, and the doctor refuses to al
low him to be seen.
District Attorney Graham came down
Saturday nieht and had a long inter
view with the detective. Mr. Gra
ham returned to his cottage at
North Spring Lake. He refuses to
say anything concerning Marsh's sup
posed presence here. Constable Sexton
said last night that Freeman was positive
that Marsh w:ts in hiding in the house at
Como, and he also lielieved that the shots
were fired and the blows administered by
Marsh or one of his friends.
A NOTABLE NECK O' WOODS."
The Only Strip of America Where the Na
tievs Are Independent.
Washington, June 22. A report re
ceived from Capt. Gilbert P. Cotton, the
World's fair commissioner to British Hon
duras, gives an account of his visit to the
Mosquito nation, the only tribe of aborig
ines on the American coast which has man
aged to retain its independence during the
400 years since the discovery. The King,
Robert Clarence, was not at Bluefields
while Captain Cotton was there, being on
a visit to England, but a very cordial re
ception was iven him by Mr. James W.
Cuthburt, his majesty's secretary of state,
who assured him that a very good exhibit
would tie sent to Chicago from the Mos
Native Caribs at the Expo.
'Among other attractions from this coun
try will be a band of native Caribs, who
are skillful in many lines of manufacture
and in the domestic arts, and will carry
on their in kustries on the exposition
grounds as t Ley do at home. The work of
constructing a railway from Bluefields to
the interior of the country has given a
great boom to the Mosquito country, and
the unusual prosperity enjoyed by the
people will encourage tUem to make a fine
exhibit in 18i.
An Interesting Fact for Millers,
Wasdisgtok, June 22. It will be inter
esting to the millers of the United States
to know that the Canadian commissioner
to the recent Jamaica exposition has dem
onstrated that northern flour can be kept
a reasonable time in the tropics without
being especially treated. He purposely
kept flour, both in sacks and barrels, six
ty and ninety days exposed to ordinary
weather, and at the end of this time both
lots were found to be perfectly sweet and
The Ilii" In the Price or Silver.
WASHl.GTON,Juue 22. Treasury depart
ment officials have watched with interest
the recent rise in the price of silver, which,"
within a few days,advanced several points,
until Saturday it was $1.01 per ounce. Di
rector Lewci, of the United States mint,
says that in Lis opinion the advance is in
a large degree natural, at the continued
and regular treasury purchases are mak
ing an impression upon the market. He
thinks the probabilities are that the rise
is permanent, and will be progressive.
