BREAK IN SILVER.
A Greater Decline. Than Has Occurred
Since 1803.
New York, Aug. 6.?Silver bullion ex?
perienced to day the most violent break
in the entire season's decline. In Lon?
don tho price dropped one-half penny per
ounce from yesterday's price, selling at
25 3-4 pence per ounce, as against 28 1-2 a
month ago.
The New York price fell io 55 3-4 bid,
a break of 1 1-4 cents an ounce from yes?
terday.aud of 4 1-4 cents an ounce within
a month. At this price the bullion in
the silver dollar is a tri tie more than 43
cents. London dispatches describe to?
day's weakness in silver to liquidation by
New York holders of the metal. No
such decline as to-day's has been wit?
nessed since June, 1803. The India
mints were closed to silver coinage on
June 26, of that year. On the news sil?
ver fell from 47 1-2 per ounce to a p'lce
below 30 in London, but rallied sharply
later.

FAVORING PRESIDENT ANDREWS.
Many Alumni Would Like to Have Him
at Virginia University.
Hot Springs. Aug. 6.?During the past
few days siuce the interest aroused here
about the election of a president for the

sity.

much favcr, the reason being that the
university is the embodiment of inde?
pendent vietvs and ideas, which seems

one of the most successful. From a
small beginning a few years ago Mr.Bon?

Bonner enlarged his dining room in order
to meet the domain', made upon his popu?
lar place and now to be prepared for the
increaoed trade.which should justly go to
him, he has added a complete bakery nnd
employed a thoroughly capable and ex?
perienced baker from Philadelphia to
take charge of this department. A new
steam table has also been added, beside
various other improvements, making a
every complete and satisfactory outfit.
This restaurant is located at 13 Salem
avenue, in the heart of the business cen?
ter,and visitors at the eoniinc; convention
will find a service and accommodations
unsurpassed in the city.
