JWaut Parades of the V mm ployed Stopped.
Chief of Police Breunau appealed to the
law department for an opinion as to his
authority to stop the meetings or the par
ades of the unemployed. The assistaut
corporation counsel, who is preparing the
opinion, said: "These peop'.e undoubtedly
have the right to meet and to parade the
streets. With us it is a question of policy
as to how far we should go to prevent a
possible outbreak." The police have re
ceived many complaints from business
men who claim that the parades are inter
fering with their business. Some profess
a fear that their places may be looted. The

Mayor liar, iitoii's C urrency Scheme.
Mayor Harrison has outlined a plan for
relieving the financial stringency in this
city. "1 am w.lling," he said, "to assist
in relieving the scarcity of currency by
paying city obligations as fast as they are
due in warrants of small denomination,
that -."ill go into circulation and be receiv
able at t he clearing house and in all banks
as legitimate currency. Such warrants
beinj; based upon money in the treasury
would circulate at par, being redeemable
on demand. At the same time it would
not be subject to hoarding liko present
currency but would circulate freely in tho
daily transactions of business."
BRUSH WITH 'LONGSHOREMEN.
Ityrncs' Gotham Police .stop Turbulence In
New Yokk, Aug. 2C Superintendent
Byrnes has ordered a stop put to the riot
ing of the striking 'longshoreman along
the East river. When he got down to his
office he received reports of the various
acts of violence committed by the strikers.
It appears that in addition to driving
away -from the docks the Italians who
wantel to work the strikers threw pav
ing stones and bri.:k bats at. a number of
policemen stationed along the river front.
He ordered Inspector Williams to break
tins up, and the inspector collected seventy
officers and went to thf scene. There was
a crowd of st rikers at the docks, and sev
eral Italians had been assaulted. The in
spector read the law to the mob, and this
having no effect he charged on it. The
rioters sought the saloons, but were driveu
out, and then policemen were stationed on
every corner and no more gEtherings per
mitted. A large number of the rioters
were severely clubbed.
THREATENING IN KANSAS.
The Shooting; at Litchfield May Yet Result
PlTTSBi iiG, Kas., Aug. 26. The expect
ed trouble resulting from the shooting of
a white by negro miners at Litchfield has
been avoided so far, but all sorts of rumors
are afloat as to attacks to be made on the
stockaded miners and a big row is looked
for at any time. Whatever plans the
miners have on foot, if any, are being kept
well under cover. At Weir City the shoot
ing has terribly stirred up the miners.
About fifty of them, with guns, drilled in
vacant lots along the main street.
The strikers are becoming desperate, as
there are between 150 and 2J0 who have
been blacklisted by the companies. A
large crowd of strikers from Litchfield
visited the Yale mines to induce the men
to come out, and a visit will be made to
other mines. It is quietly rumored that
an attack will be made on the stockade at
the Kansas and Texas shaft Xo. SI and
that shaft Xo. 27 will also be visited. The
excitement is being fanned to a high pitch
and the different stockades are having
their force of guards reinforced.
Strike on the Great Northern.
Gobahnesville, Minn., Aug. 20. The
boilermakers' strike takes the entire broth
erhood from St. Paul to Great Falls, Mont.,
on the Great Xorthern. The trouble seems
to be that the company foreman here has
been having help rs do the work of the
boilermakers, and because some of the old
men kicked about it they were discharged
and the men lately hired werd retained,
which is said to be directly contrary to the
agreement with the Great Xorthern Rail
way company. The men are well prepared
to stand a long siege, and expect to win

TorEKA, Kan., Aug. 26. State Bank
Commissioner Breidenthnl has issued a
circular letter to all state and private
banks in Kansas, in which he calls atten
tion to the refusal of Xew York banks to

Kansas banking law, which providesthat
"Each b-mk shall at all times have on
hand 20 per cent, of its deposits, one-half
of which may consist of balances due to it
from good, solvent banks," and continues:
"In view of t hese facts balances due from
Xew York city banks in excess of 2 per
cent, of your dcposits,w'.ll nctbe considered
as a part of your legal reserve until such
banks shall attain resume payment in
lawful money of the United States." He

Xew York correspondent and the amount
on deposit there.

Synopsis of Congressional I)nlnr.
Washington, Aug. 26. The speech made
by Hill of New York in the 6enate was re
markable in many respects. One of these
was the hostility to President Cleveland
shown all through it; another was that
the senator came out flatly as a free coin
age man, and even said tlie ratio should
be 15 i to 1 instead of 16 to 1. The
fiat theory was fully indorsed. The gold
dollar was worth 100 cents because it was
coined to be worth that much; so would
the silver dollar be under similar circum
stances. Coining and purchase were two
different things. Purchase implied price
and that made a thing a commodity.
Free coinage made money. He had a big
audience. Stewart spoke next to a score of
senators. Some uninteresting legislation
was passed and the senate adjourned to
No'.hing sensational transpired in the
house. Aside from the speeches delivered
by Burrows and Springer there were none
that commanded the attent ion of the mem
bers and, indeed these two speeches were
not listened to with t he intfrpvt. fhv.w
