Washington-, April 25. The treasury's
stock of gold is rapidly rising. The bank
ers are coming rapidly to its relief, and it
is said that the snpply of free nold availa-
ble is now over $10miO,000. This result
was brought about by large offerings re
ceived from bankers, who as a rule took
lepal tender notes in return. The largest
offerings came from Iiostou, which through
the Associated banks placed 4.500,000 at
the disposal of the treasury. It is under
stood here that the Xew York banks as a
result of a conference with Treasurer Jor
dan will put a large amount of gold to the
Vedit of the treasury and so high are hopes
rising that predictions are made that by
the close of the week the treasury's gold
balance will show an excess of 20,iKX'.U00
abore the reserve.
- Western Ranks to the Kesrae.
The western banks continue to come to
the assistance of the government and sent
several millions. The most gratifying
feature of the situation is the tender of ad
ditional gold from va-ious sources. The
offers were accompanied by the suggestion
that if they proved to be insufficient
further amounts would be forthcoming.
It is reported from Chicago that President
Mitchell, of the Illinois Trust and Savings
bank, says: We have given the govern
ment f 1,500,1100 in gold in the past few
weeks and ill continue to exchange gold
for the government's paper obligations of
any kind. We will send more gold tomor
row. We have not the slightest fear thit
gold will go to a premium." Another
banker says that the Chicago banks have
HO.lMi.OUO of gold.

Assistant Trrunrrr Jordan Talks to New
Y rk Financier.
New Yor.K, April 25. A protracted
conference lasting several hours has been
beld at the sub-treasury between Assist
ant Treasurer Jordan and a number of
prominent bank presidents. Among Mr.
Jordan's visitors were Brayton Ives, presi
dent of the Western National bank; J.
Edwar 1 Simmons, of the Fourth National
bank: Henry W, Caunon. of the Chase Na
tional bank; (leorge S. Coe, of the Ameri
can Kxchange National hank; ex-United
States Treasurer Charles J. Cauda, and ex
Secretary Kairt-hild: Chapin, of the Third
National, and J. A. Wright of Drexel Mor
gan Co. None of the hankers would
divulge the nature of the conference, they
saying mat it nan ueen agreeu tuat any
news giveu out must come from Treas
urer Jordan. A a result of the conference,
acommunie,iii):i will undoubtedly be ad
dressed to Washington. It was generally
supposed that an arrangement would le
made by which t he bankers will turn about
$13,000,000 into the treasury.
Assistant Treasurer Jordan has been
, pressed on all hands for a statement, but
, be is reticent and insists that such in
formation as is wanted can only come from
Washington. He said:
i ; "1 can only say that we have had a dis
cussion and debate as to the best way to
' relieve the situation both as regards the
banks and the government. That has re
sulted as usual in delay. You cannot
know anything further from me until that
delay no longer exists."
That the balance of trade is still against
this country was shown by the fact that
$850,000 more gold was taken from the sub
treasury for export. 'It is expected," said
one bank president, "that we shall continue
to ship 4,COO,000 or $5,000,000 of gold a
week until the demand is over that is,
until the balance of trade is reversed or
until some of our unmarketed products are
sent forward and can be drawn against."

UNCLE SAM IS SUPREME.
And Sooth Carolina Gets That Informa
tion Once More.
WxsniXGTOX. April 25. The South Caro
lina tax cases have been passed upon by the
mpreme court of the United States, the
opinion being delivered by Chief Justice
Fuller. The first came up nil the petition
of Sheriff Tyler, of Aiken county, for a
writ of habeas corpus to release him from
Imprisonment under the judgment of the
circuit court of the United States that he
be fined $500 for contempt. He had seized
train on the South Carolina railroad upon
a warrant issued by the state authorities
for the collection of taxes, which were in
controversy. The road was in the hands of
a receiver appointed by the United, States
court, and under Governor Tillman's in
structions the sheriff refused to release the
train when ordered to do so by that court,
Justice i tiller read an opinion contain
ing much stronger language than is usn
ally found in such documents, denying the
application of the petitioner for the writ.
He said the seizure of the property by
force was brutal, and could not be defend
ed. The same judgment was announced in
the cases of Sheriffs Rises and Gaines, who
were in the same box with Tyler.
The railways held that the taxes were
unjust and illegal. The taxation of rail
road property had been one of the chief
rallying cries of the Tillttanites in their
war against the conservatives in the Dem
ocratic party, and it was larcely on this
plank that they carried the state. Hereto
fore in the state courts they have won the
legal questions. The decision will be a con
siderable relief to the railroads in South
Carolina, some of which bave gone so far
M to threaten to throw up their charters
rather than to continue to operate tinder
the burden of the oppressive taxes levied.

School to Tearh
Des:Moines, April 25. General James
B. Weaver has made public a proposition
for the establishment of an "Independent
School of Political Science" in Des Moines.
He says such a school is rjecessary because
every patriotic citizen "realizes that the
adversaries of human lilierty, those who
would rob and enslave the world, are full
handed and have the attention and control
of the masses of the people. They control
the colleges and diversities of the
country." The proposed school is to have
seven professorships corresponding to the
following subjects: I .and and public
utilities and inventions, finance, transpor
tation, constitutional law and legislation,
suffrage, applied Christianity, public de
bates. General Weaver offers to act as di
rector of the school without salary until a
successor can be appointed.

Course Responsible for a Mob Murder.
Columbia, S. C, April 25. John Peter
son, colored, has been lynched at Denmark
by a mob of negroes. This is the culmina
tion of the assault upon young Miss Bessie
Baxter last week by an unknown negro.
Peterson had been followed through the
country to Columbia, where he came and
claimed Governor Tillman's protection
The governor sent him to Denmark to be
tried. The mob would not, however, have
it, although Peterson claimed to have wit
nesses who could prove an alibi for him.
Peterson was carried before Miss Baxter.
He never flinched. Miss Baxter declared
he was not the man.
The crowd was disappointed at this
declaration and eagerly seized on other
points to his disadvantage. A negro wom
an, who is said to have been angry with
Peterson, testified adversely to him. The
crowd grew wild and took Peterson out,
strung him to a tree and riddled him with
bullets. There appears to be no doubt
that Peterson was innocent. Governor
Tillman's action in sending Peterson to
the mob is receiving universal condemna
tion. SAVED A DASTARD'S LIFE.
