WHITE METAL FOR OFFICES.
Disgraceful Means Taken by Cleve
land to Secure the Repeal of
the Sherman Law.
Specl&l to The Morning Cali.
Washington, June The Star Iras
this: Information coming from silver
sources makes it a safe prediction that
theie will be comparatively little trouble
in passing a bill through the House to re
peal the Sherman silver law soon after
Congress meets. How the thing will stand
in the Senate is another story, but it will
probably be found tbat the Finance Com
mittee will have a majority for the repeal
of the present law. The reason given by
some of those who will drop from the
ranks of the radical silver men is that in
the light of the present financial situation
many of their people, without yielding
their convictions on the silver question,
are willing that the Sherman law should
be repealed at once, leaving the matter
of tbe future coinage of silver open. How
far this is the result of the distribution or
withholding of patronage by Cleveland
may be left for inference, but it .is certain
that Cleveland has not lost sicht of this

The total net gold in the treasury at the
close of business to-day was 891,439,271.
This does not take into account the gold
engaged to-day at New York for shipment
to-morrow. Because of the heavy ship
ments of gold from New York Secretary
Carlisle has ordered gold shipped from
three other sub-treasuries to that place to
keep up the supply, and this gold is now
on the way to New York.
New York, June 2.— Touching the tak
ing of measures by the administration to
replenish the gold reserve, the rumor was
current in Wall street to-day that an
attempt would be made to force the hands
of the executive by exporting a consider
able quantity of gold, so as to bring the
reserve in the neighborhood of 550.000,000,
and thus lead to a bond issue.
The rumor found little credence, and
interviews with the most prominent bank
ers indicate a feeling that a bond issue
would not necessarily be a good thing,
since the gold reserve has been broken and
ii" special harm has resulted.
The best-informed men say, however,
the present commercial depression has
gone too far to be entirely checked. The
time has not yet come for the re-extension
of cr;<iit on a large scale, and the present

WITH COOL CONTEMPT.
That Is How the Senate of Rhode
Island Treats the Governor.
Newport, li. 1., June This ten
Governor Brown prorogued the Legisla
ture, the Senate by a party vote having
refused to concur with the House in the
passage of a resolution requesting tlie
Governor to lay the difficulties standing in
the way cf the two houses meeting in
grand committee before the Supreme
Court. Hearing of the coming proclama
tion from the Governor the Senate unoffi
cially took a recess for an hour just as it
reached the Speaker's desk. Upon reas
sembling it adopted last year's rules with
some alteration, and adopted also a reso
lution requesting the Judges of the Su
preme Coutt to render a decision upon the
points In dispute. An adjournment was
taken until Monday without even the read
ing of the Governor's proclamation.
The Doctors at Omaha Favor a Na-
Omaha. June 2.— The last day's session
of the National Association of Railway
Surgeons proved to be sensational. After
the election of officers, and while the sur
geons were preparing to wind up business,
a heated discussion was suddenly precipi
tated which took on a political as well as
a surgical phase. The cholera quarantine
was at "the bottom of the trouble, and
finally the doctors gave Tammany a black
eye by voting to favor national control of
the quarantine regulations. The election
of officers resulted in Dr. W. J. Galbraith
being chosen president. A number of
vice-pres dents as well as a secetary and
treasurer were also elected. '

that New York has already given notice
that lt will not offer less than SIOOO per

uled races there will be sanctioned races
at fairs and smaller cities which are not
members of the association, which will
make chances for successful racing men

Use of Arms.
London. June 2.— the Commons to
day in the debate on the home-rule bill an
amendment offered by E. W. Byrne, an
Ulster member, showed for the first time
that they Gladstone was conceding
too much without consulting them.
Chief Secretary Morley said the Govern
ment would accept the amendment debar
ring the Irish Legislature from permitting
the use of arms for military purposes.
Thomas Sexton .Nationalist), member of
Parliament for Norm Kerry, spoke in op
position to the proposed amendment and

amendment was rejected.

Decidedly Unfriendly to the
Special to The Morning Call.
Panama. Colombia. June 2.— The Pan
ama filar and Herald publishes un edi
torial ridiculing: the intimation of Minister
Guzman of Nicaragua that the Nicaragua
I unci Company was *snT»p«r'rng tu-*'
lution aeainst Sacaza. It asserts that no
political party in Nicaragua favors the
Nicaragua Canal Company, and claims
ihat Z iv^la and his associate;, who led the
revolutionary movement and furnished
money to maintain it, are on record
| against it. having on different occasions
1 denounced the canal, company's policy
j and the inconsistent conduct of its Ameri
j can promoters.
The Star and Herald alleges that the
corporation is impoverished, and main
tains its existence only by passing the bat
atuone protected lords of America. It
says the company is unable to keep a fin
ale dredger at work or to finish the flimsy
railroad which runs back to the bushes,
and that the bar at Greytown is rapidly
j filling. The Star and Herald adds that it?
, contracts are worth no more than the
j paper on which they are written.
Managua, Nicaragua, June 2.— The.
residents of Managua breathe easier
now that they realize they have no longer
to fear ; unuhuient at the bauds of Sacaza's
Sacazi's troops were not at any time en
thusiastic in his cause, and the reverses at
Barranca Pass disheartened them. When
ordered out for the last time many of the
men in the ranks refused to go. It was
an open exhibition of mutiny, and the-
officer in command shot two of the muti
nous soldiers, but the men turned their
rifles against him and the effort to get them
into another fight was abandoned.
Sacaza himself feared that be might be
assassinated by some of the revolutionists'
sympathizers, and he left the President's
palace only once after the war began.

of the Honduras revolutionists have all

days until these men will be dispersed,
and unless some new and . unexpected de

in Honduras is at an end. The constitu

The Royal Couple Slip Away From
the Watchful Eye of Com
Special to The Morning Call.
New York, June 2.— Prince Antoine
and his wife, Infanta Eulalia, enjoyed a
novel experience this afternoon by slipping
quietly away from the watchful care of
Commander Davis and Superintendent
Byrnes' detectives, and arm in arm stroll
ing about the streets unattended.
The Princess and her suite had just re
turned to the Hotel Savoy, from an excur
sion on the Dolphin, when the Prince sug
gested the lark. Stealing quietly down
stairs they were in the street and away
before Commander Davis missed them.
They first strolled down Fifth avenue
until opposite the house of Cornelius Van
derbilt, where they stopped for a few
moments and watched the stonecarvers at
work on the new addition to the building.
While standing there hundreds of people
passed them, little dreaming tbat the
pretty, golden-haired woman in the sailor
hat, whom they almost brushed against,
was a Princess of Spain.
After some minutes they turned into
Fifty-eighth street, and slowly sauntered
toward Sixth avenue, engaged in animated
conversation, tho Princess once or twice
laughing heartily at some sally of the
Prince. They paused for a while, and
watched the trains on the Sixth-avenue
Elevated Railroad. Then they continued
their walk to Seventh avenue, turned and
walked up to Fifty-ninth street.
There they crossed over to the park side
and stood for some time viewing the
Columbus monument. They then turned
about and slowly sauntered along the
Fifty-ninth street park front and returned
to the hotel after an absence of an hour
and a quarter. Davis was considerably
disturbed until he found they had re
turned safely. •_'.".

to-day and the members of the committee
and their wives were her guests for a day's
outing. The Dolphin started at once when
the Infanta boarded her and as she got
abreast of the Infanta Isabel the ship
saluted. Then the United States men-of

guns of the Dolphin saluted as the Princess
left the ship. The Princess remained in
her apartments this evening.
The programme of entertainment ar
ranged by the committee is now completed
and the many entertainments provided
were not marred by a single unpleasant
incident. Eulalia and her party will leave
for Chicago at 12:30 p. M. on Monday.

Chicago, June 2.— Word was received
to-day that the far-famed oriental mon
arch, the Sultan of Jahore, was coming to
the World's Fair. His Majesty has directed
Commissioner Lake to meet him in Ger
many and accompany him here.
The White City is now practically com
pleted. ■ The railway tracks which were
laid inside the grounds to facilitate the
distribution of exhibits were taken up to
day, and with very few exceptions the
exhibits are all in place, and by the first of
next week the fair will undoubtedly be
finished for the inspection of the public
from end to end.
The band of Austria's crack regiment
arrived to-day and will give a series of
concerts throughout the fair.
The heavy clouds that threatened rain
this morning did not keep the people
away from the grounds, and when the
weather cleared up this afternoon the
crowd increased till the bureau of admis
sion estimated that some 50,000 were there.
The attendance yesterday was 35,960.

A number of the foreign Commissioners
who, when dissatisfied with the award
plan, withdrew their exhibits from the

had restored them as a result of the settle

An. lnjunction Pending a Decision by
the Court Refused. .
Chicago, June —Just before the Fed
eral court adjourned to-day in the World's
Fair Sunday-closing suit. United States
Attorney Milehrlst asked that, in the ab
sence of a permanent decision, a restrain
ing order be issued for next Sunday. This
was refused. Judge Woods, speaking for
the court, siid no intimation could be
given as to when a decision might be ex
pected. ; .;
On behalf of the fair it was argued that
if this court should grant the prayer of
petitioner for au order closing the gates
on Sunday, the management would have
to either disobey that order or the order of
the State court holding that tho park being
for the recreation and enjoyment of the
people, they could not be kept out ou any
day of the week.
The court asked if the logic of this was
that no entrance fee could be charged.
The attorney for the fair said no. be
cause of the large amount spent in build
ing the fair the directory was entitled to
charge a fee. This had already been
decided in effect. ;
Attorney High, for the Government, pro
duced the report of the dedication exer
cises of the exposition anil read portions
of President Higinbotham's address for
mally transferring the enterprise to the
National Commission. This. Mr. High
asserted, placed the entire exposition in
the hands of the Government and invested
the Federal representatives with full power
of control. -~
"What do you think Mayor Harrison
meant when he tendered to Chicago's dis
tinguished giusts the freedom of the city
said Judge Jenkins, referring to the cour
tesy extended to the Duke of Veragua.
The question caused a ripple of laughter,
and Attorney High, who was somewhat
taken back at the query,' said: "Well, of
course, this is for your Honors to decide."
There is much speculation to-night, now
that the case is fiually in the Judges'
hands, as to when a decision will be ren
dered. Not a few expect that it will be an
nounced to-morrow,' but such quick action
Is not generally looked for.
" HUNGRY GUUCH."
An Attractive Feature of the Callfor-
Chicago. June 2.— Commissioner S. W.
Ferguson arrived to-day from California.
He is much pleased with the condition in
which he finds the State exhibit, as he was
led to believe from the criticisms he had
seen at home that it was a failure.
. An impression has been abroad for some
days that Senator Stanford, had relin
quished the idea of making an exhibit of
his wines. ' This is denied by Chief La
Rue of the viticulture > department. He
says the work has been somewhat delayed
in part because of some misunderstanding,
but that it is now j being vigorously gotten
ready and will be one of the handsomest
exhibits of the fair,
One of the many unique things in the
State building is -the pyramid of olive oil
which is j. being erected by a California
firm. It attracts much attention. A large
wooden orange is also being erected and
covered with ripe orances. It is near the
center of the building on the ground floor,
and can be seen from all parts of the build

Special to TnE Mos.ytxo Call.
New York, June 2.— Professor Charles
A. Briggs received calls at the Uuicn
Theological Seminary to-day from many
friends, who offered their sympathy. De
said he would soon go to some quiet place
and plan his future course, but as far as
he knows at present his future is a blank.
He bears no . ill will toward the Presbyte
rian church iv general or the General
Assembly that found him guilty of heresy
and suspended him from the ministry, and
his further actions will be of such a nature
that the interests of the church will be
conserved and his own welfare looked to
at the same time.
He said he had been the victim of in
justice, as he had not been allowed the
constitutional rights of an ac-used minis
ter. In fact, he had been adjudged guilty
before lie reached Washington. He said
that the church was afraid to place the
matter ln the hands cf the New York
Synod, and the tact ihat it was taken out
of the hands of the intermediate body be
tween the New York Presbytery and the
General Assembly was in itself an uncon
stitutional act. .
"Further than this," Briggs weut on, "1
desire not to say anything. I cau each
even laymen are not debarred from that —
but. I may not administer commmunion
and I have no voice in any of the delibera
tions of the presbytery. I may still teach

nected if the directors desire to still stand
It is said that Briggs will lead no spilt in
the church, and the friends of the semi
nary believe that if it is withdrawn from
the control of the Presbyterian board of
education it will be an. advantage to the
institution, for it will then be independent
of the General Assembly. Wte

Moloney Has Won the First Battle
Against the Trust.
Chicago, Juue 2. — The quo warranto
proceedings instituted by Attorney-Gen
eral Moloney in the uanie of the people of
the Slate of Illinois against the Whisky
Trust, came up for hearing this morning
before Judge Tuley of the Circuit Court.
Counsel for the trust moved to dismiss
proceedings on the ground that they have
been filed in Peoria County, and that the
suit was wrongly Instituted against the
company which it peeks to oust of its char
ter. The points were overruled.
After a long legal debate Judge Tuley
held that he had no -jurisdiction, and
granted the Attorney-General leave to file
an information against the trust. The
charges will be a technical enlargement of
those already published.
To-morrow afternoon President Green
hut and Secretary Hennessy of the trust
will close the sale of the first 51,000,000 of
the new bonds.

London, June 2.— The Foreien Office
has issued the blue book which contains
the correspondence concerning the agree
ment between Great Britain and Russia as
to the protection of Russia's sealing inter
ests in the North Pacific Ocean and Bering
Sea. The original contention of Russia
was that her cruisers should have the ex
clusive right to police the seas in question
and convey British trespassers to Petro
panlovsky, where all cases should be ad
judicated. Lord ltonehery declined to
agree to such proceedings and suggested
that British vessels caught trespassing be
conveyed to Yokohama, where the cases
should be adjudicated by the British Con
sular Court. Eventually the powers agreed
that trespassers should be delivered to a
British Cruiser or to the nearest British
authority on land, Great Britain at the
same time undertaking to bring them
speedily to trial. ;,
— — — .. — _ ._ .-...- -
Among the contents of the book is the
text of an agreement submitted to Privy
Councilor Schichkine on May 12 last. It
provides that during the year ending
December 31 next, British subjects will be
prohibited from killing or banting seals
within the following limits: (a) Within
a zone of ten marine miles following the
sinuosities of the Russian coasts which
border Bering Sea and any other part of
the North Pacific Ocean. (6) Within a
zone of thirty marine miles around the
Komandorsky Islands and around Bobbin
Islands and Tulinew Islands. British ves
sels poaching in said limit may be seized
by either British or Russian cruisers; but,
if seizsd by the latter, they shall be handed
over as announced above.
The Russian Government engages to
limit to 30,000 the number of seals that
may be killed in the whole year 1893, upon
and around the islands of Komandorsky
and Tulinew. ,; .'.*' "-.";.
Schichkine, in accepting this agreement,
said it was with the distinct understanding
that it leaves intact all the rights of Rus
sia in her territorial waters, and Rose
bery in reply said that it mignt be mutu
ally understood that the rights and
position of each power would remain
unaffected by this provisional agreement.
Paris. June 2.-Sir Richard Webster
continued bis argument to-day before the
Bering Sea tribunal of arbitration In be
half of the British case. He pointed out
that the exclusion of tbe seals by Senator
Sumner, who had charge in the United
Stales of the measure for the acquisition
of Alaska, from tbedescription of Alaskan
products refuted the assertion that the
value of the seals had induced the United
States to pay 87,000.000 for Alaska. Sir
Richard quoted from the debates In Con
gress on the purchase of Alaska to show
that no importance had then attached to
the seals or to the exclusive jurisdiction
claimed to have been obtained in Bering
Sea. . ' ."->■:-.'
