THE BUREAU OF AWARDS.
John Hoyd Thacher Tells What It Ex
pects to In.
The much criticised bureau of awards,
headed by Jc hn Boyd Thacher, is pursuing
its set course vigorously, and the various
ends of the work are gradually taking form
and shaping themselves into a whole which
promises much good to ths world. In
speaking of the methods upon which the
work of his I ureau is based Mr. Thacher
said: "This bureau from its organization
has proposed to cause the most complete
and exhaustive examinn: ion of the exhib
its in the exposition, that we might oley
the injunctioa of congress requiring us to
disclose to the world the progre-s made in
the arts, industries, and sciences. The
commercial side of the awards question
sinks into insignificance when comparej
to the instrut tive side.
"Grain is to lie chemically examined to
discover if tha farmer is utilizing his land
for the best purposes. Wool is to lie ex
perimented u;xn in the laboratory to as
certain the vtlue of the fibre and the pro
priety of raising certain grades of sheep in
certain localit ies aud under certain condi
tions. Food products are to lie analyzed
and their physiological value determined.
The opportunity to thoroughly investigate
and weigh the best work of mind and
baud brought here by the nutions of the
world will not occur again this genera
"It would h ive been easy enough to have
adopted the old-fashioned, meaningless
method of making awards, and then every
thing would 1 ave been delightfully com
fortable. But what educational results
would there have beeuf To know that
John Smith g it a prize for his exhibit tells
the world n ithing. What we want to
know is the sj ecific merit or improvement
over the past disclosed by his exhibit. I
have always fdt that the intelligent pub

Thompson, of Chicago, was instantly

sion to visit his stable when he found hU

pot ies The Sheriff Makes a Speech
Weir Citt, Kan., July 23. A dispatch
from Topeka snys that the governor held
a conference with the state officers as the
result of the reception of a number of tele
grams from this place. The conference was
socret and theonly thing made public so
far is a telegram sent to the sheriff of this
county, wnich reads as follows: "Under
no circumstances can th state authority
permit violence. Strikers must not tres
pass nor assault United States deputy
marshals, nor destroy property. Read this
to the miners." This is signed by Gov
ernor Lewelling and has stiffened the
backbone of the sheriff. As a result of this
the situation is hopeful for the mine oper
ators and gloomy for the strikers.
Threatened with the Military.
Shaft No. 47 at this place has started up.
The non-union miners were protected by a
force of d puty sheriffs. Shaft Xo. 18 was
also started. The sheriff made an address
to the strikers. He told them that he was
under orders from the governor to keep
the peace and protect the men who are
working, and that he would certainly obey.
He also said that it he found that he did
not have and could not obtain a sufficient
number of deputies to protect the non-union
men he would call upon the governor
for troops. There are, he said, 500 military
stationed within three honrs' rid on the
cars from Weir City. If brought there, he
said, they would soon decimate the ranks
of the strikers.
Manufacturing Dynamite Ttombs.
In conclusion the sheriff said that the
only thing that now causes him to appre
hend further trouble is the fact that
foreigners in Weir City are manufacturing
dynamite bombs. The Keith and Perry
mine will resume operations some time
this week with a guard of thirty deputy
AN EMBARRASSMENT OF SILVER.
So Much of It In the Chicago Sub-Treasury
That It Is Barred.
Chicago, July 23. A notice has been
posted in the United States 6ub-treasury
to the effect that silver would not be re
ceived. During the day many employes of
banks brought in sacks of the white
metal to get currency in exchange, but
they had to shoulder their loads and go
again as they came. There is more silver
lying around uncounted behind the rails
of 'the sub treasury than the force can
handle. On every shelf and m piles ca the
floor canvas sacks filled with dollars and
other coins are stacked up until there is
hardly room to get about.
"We are unable to handle the big amount
of silver we have on hand," said one of the
officials, "and until it can be all counted
and checked up we will not receive any
more over the counter. For some time
past great quantities of silver have been
brouirht here bT the banks to be exchanged
for currency, until the amount has become j
greater than we can handle, and we have
had to call a temporary halt. This is all !
there is to the matter." I
