CniCAOO, Aug. 1. Silverites from the
fast, the aonth and the west have arrived
In this city. The wesuru men predom
inate; they rome in regular delegations
In orcanized 1kHp. while those from the
outh and east are fewer in nnmhera and
from ncattereil sections. The Colorado
deletion was the first of any nize to put
in an apiM-aranre, 100 of these irriving at
the Palmer House at ! o'clock in the morn
ing, and twice that mimlier more arrivim?
on the night trains. It wai the most
representative of all the delegations on
account ol the eminent men in the body.
Governor Wnite is chairman of the dele
gation and immediately on its arrival he
took possession of the headquarters in the
Palmer House and received a stream of
caller all day long.
Talk of Some of the Leaders.
"I shall not he a candidate for chairman
of the convention," he said, "and have not
authorized the use of my tiime. I have
no preference for chairman. Our delega
tion demand an expression in favor of free
coinage of silver at the ratio of 1 to 16.
That is the ratio and represents the ex
pense of silver production with a slight
margin of profit to the miner."
Among the lending men in the delega
tion are Ex-Senators Hill Rnd Tabor,
Judge Kising and ex Governor Koutt.
The la ter said: ' The situation in Colo
rado has been greatly misrepresented.
This talk about lO.otKi idle men en route
w tne east is the creation of an imagina
members' have as.yei put. in an appearance,
j Less than a m re of representatives and a
dcsen senators are here. Ex-Speaker Crisp
j is non-comniit al on all current topics. Of
course there is the usual speculation about
the remittees i nd other matters that inter-
est congressman, but nothing of fact has
developed. Surprise is.expresscd that the
cut-ioiiiur can ior a lA'iuocratic house
caucus has no: yet been issued. Holman
is the chnirma i of the caucus and it is his
fill ction to issie this call, but he has not
yet arrived ir Washington. This delay
worries the pe pie who have aspirations in
in the direetioi s of house patronage.
Judge Ijiviugstnn, Democratic-Populist
representative, of Georgia, has a plan by
which lie hopi-s to bring the silver ques
before to iress promptly. He says
that at the first opportunity he can get he
intends to introduce a joint resolution de
fining the po icy of the government and
declaring it tl lie the intention of this
congress to maintain the use of gold and
sib cr as a curr ncv on a parity with each
other. "This.' said Livingston, "will 1 a
notice that we ire favorable to a bimetal
lic currency and I have no doubt that it
will be adoptel. We can then go about
the consideration of the details more nt
leisure and effect the relief that is sought.
"I am one of those who do mt llieve
that the repeal of the Sherman law will
prove an adequate remedy for the ills
fro . which we are suffering. My people
are in favor of t he repeal of that law, but
they will insist upon something to take its
place. Even f -ee coinage will not suffice.
The south will ?e the last in the matter of
forcing free co.nage, but will join hands

New York Has Trouble With
NO PANIC, BUT MUCH NEEVOUSNESS
FAILED TO BUY THE LIMIT.
Only 3,284.000 nm e of Silver Bought In
July I n.Ur Sherman's Law.
Washington', Aug 1. For the first
month since the passage of the Sherman
silver law the treasury last month failed
to buy the full quota of $4,500,000 ounces
of silver. The t otal purchase for July was
2,3S4,0O0 ounces leaving a shortage of
2,1 lfi.oou ounces. The two Populist mem
bers of congress fro.u Colorado Messrs.

Doings of the ''Money Tower."
"Colorado is all right. True, values have
gone down rapidlv since the British gov
ernment suspended free coinage in India,
but not much more than the reduction of
values in the east. We have been
sandbagged by the money power whose in
terest lies in the further contraction of
the currency of the country, and how men
can be brought to lielieve that thede
mnoctization of $4i0 000 qf silver will help
the financial condition of the country I
cannot understand. This scare of the
past three months which has locked np so
much money in safe deposit vaults is an
object lesson of the effect of a contraction
of the circulation that will not be lost upon
the people of the country."
Reagan of Texas for Chairman.
w.-enaior iteagan, now commissioner
of railroads for Texas, was among the first
arrivals at the Grand Pacific. "The ex-senator
has not lost his interest in silver,
which he championed in congress, and is
among the most enthusiastic delegates to
the convention. A boom was started early
in the day for Reagan as permanent chair
man of the convention, which assumed
onie proportions when General Warner
announced that he would not be a candi
date for the chairmanship and favored the
selection of Reagan. Among the southern
men present in the city is J. H. McDowell,
of Tennessee, chairman Of the People's
party committee of that state, and one of
the ablest and most astute politicians in

Warner sent out a private call to the lead

o'clock when the meeting opened with

but those whose interest and prominence
in the movement were unquestioned.
General Warner presided, and an in
formal expression of opinion followed
along the line that England, struggling for
the monetary supremacy of the world,
had ever since the XuDoleonic war pressed
the gold standard upon the nations of the
earth, until the conflict had narrowed
down to the United States, and now its de
mands had to be checked or absolute slav
ery to English influence must prevail. The
conference declared that no interference
must be permitted in the convention by
men not in harmony with free coinage at
the standard of 1 to 10. aud that this end
might be accomplished it was decided to
support a permanent chairman, and the
unanimous choice fell upon Thurman, who
was designated as "found to the core."

tween the union and non-union men at the
lumber docks in 1 his city culminated In a
fight in which it number on both sides
wereinjnred. O i Saturday all of the mill
owners excepting Mr. Shores gave in to
the demands of the union men for 50 cents
per hour. Shore refused flatly to pay it
and stated that be would get non-union
help. These men were put to work, but
no sooner did the union men at wirk on
other docks get wind of it than t hey at
tacked the Shore dock.
This was guarded by the chief of police,
sheriff and deputies. A fierce fight re
sulted in which a number of the union
men were badly c ubbed and one shot, but
not fatally. The men finally succeeded in
reaching the boats and put the non-union
men to rout. The n they returned to their
work, but later about twenty of them

Anotber Officials Confident.
XrWYoiiK) Aug. 1. At all of the sav
ings banks hero an unusual number of
nervous depositors wanted their money.
More than three-quarters of tliese were
women. At the East Side banks, where the
depositors were mostly foreigners, the run
was heaviest. There was no alarm among
the savings banks officials, who declared
that they were imu-e than able to meet
with their cash balances the demands that
may be made upon them. They expect
thi.t the excitement among the ignorant
depositors will soon subside. Still where
it was evident that a panic might be
started, or that the depositors were them
selves panic struck, the time rule was en
Pew Large Depositors Give Notice.
The most encouraging sign was that
very lew large depositors gave notice that
they would withdraw their deposits in
thirty or sixty days. So far as is known
all the savings banks in the tity except
two or three put the time clause into ef
fect before the day closed, and the others
probably will do so today. There were
strange scenes around the banks during
the day. At the Emigrant Industrial sav
ings bank in Chambers street there was
a crowd of from 00 to 400 depositors all
day. The great majority of them were
poor women, and a very large percentage
oi tne men were Italians.
German Were Very Anxioas.
The bank that had the most trouble was

not one-half of the depositors who wanted
money could get it owing to rush. The t ime

A Jewish paper printed a statement that
ths "Neb," state bank had failed, mean
ing the Nebraska State bank. This
caused a run on the state bank at 373
Grand street, which was kept up all day.
Tir Polish and Russian Jews, who are the
depositors in the Grand Street State bank,
did not know what "Neb." meant. They
came to the conclusion that it was a typo
graphical error and that the bank referred
to was their bank, and when it was opened
there was a rush of depositors to draw out
their money. It was impossible to reas
sure them, so the officers simply paid out
every account that was called for and pre
pared to stand a run.

Washington-, Aug. i. There has been a
little unpleasantness between the treasury
and New York Customs Collector Hen
dricks caused by the refusal of the treas
ury to permit the collector to authenticate
Chinese certificates, as has been the prac
tice, and Secretary Carlisle, in declining
said permission, says to the collector in a
letter: "Evidence is before the department
in one case where a Chinese person repre
sented himself to be a member of a firm of
Chinese merchants in New York, and was
so certified by the Chinese consul at New
York, which certificate was duly authen
ticated by the seal of the custom house and
the signature of one of yourdeputies, when )
in point of fact the Chinese pers n who I
presented himself at the custom house was I
another and entirely different person from i
the one named in the certificate. i
'This man applied for admission nt one !
of the frontier custom houses upon the
certificate mentioned, which according to
your theory would be concl- sive evidence
of his right to enter, inasmuch as the
photograph was that of the person who
presented himself, but it was not that of
the person named in the certificate, who
was a real personage, .formerly residing in
New York and who was still in China. It
is an ascertained fact that many hundreds
of Chinese laborers have come into this
country within the past year under the
guise of merchants, students, actors or
other persons of the exempt class, ai'led in
most cases by customs officer who were
either corrupt or indifferent to their duty
in the premises."
