A NATIONAL BANKRUPT LAW Favored By the Convention of Bankers. St. Julien Sold to Vanderbilt. Fifty Thousand Dollars Paid for the Flyer. NEW YORK. The Hankers Resolution ror si Hatlena! Bankrupt Law Mr. Butler's fapei Specie Payment and Its Relation to oth er Financial Q,uestioms. . Sasatooa, Ang. 13. The following onl cers for the ensuing year were announced to day : Chairman, George . Coe ; treasurer, George E. Baker ; recording secretary, E D. Randolph. A resolution was passed in favor of a national bankrupt law. Atkinson, of Boston, read a long Edward paper on the industrial growth of the country and the chief causes which produced it. Mr. George A. Butler, of New Haven, read a paper on the question of specie payments and the relation which it bears to other great- financial questions. Resumption has not settled any of these great questions, not even that of the 'permanency of specie payments, which will be determined by the " disposition made of legal tender notes and by the char acter of our banking. If specie payments shduld be made permanent, the character of such payments will depend upon the aotion of the silver question. The resumption of specie payments is not a final settlement of any of the great questions of finance which have agitated the country for so many years past ; nor is it a demonstration ' of courage and highest financial wisdom of the nation, These things lie in the future, and it is for tixe to determine whether we are a wise and prudent people. The outlook is not very bright for a scientific settlement of any of the great questions of finance. Movements of trade are not steadily in one direction. Their usual course is, first, business activity, ris ing prices, general and profound confidence in a magnificent future, followed by a gene ral enlargement of business of all kinds, ab sorption of the circulating capital into fixed forms such as railroads, enlargement of fac tories and building of new ones, and a gene ral expansion of credit in all its forms. Fi nally, the manufacturer is compelled to cur tail production because the mar- ket is filled with foreign goods. The en forced unproductiveness of capital and the enforced idleness of labor follow; or else the manufacturer continues to produce goods for which he cannot find a market, locking up not only nis capital, but compelling mm to use his credit to the utmost by borrowing of others to continue the struggle. When this point has been reached we generally find ourselves witn an adverse balance of trade. accompanied by a drain of specie ; and if the financial machinery of the country be not sound a strong panic ensues, and is followed by a period of business depression and falling prices, which continues until prices have fallen so low that the drain of specie is checked. - Besumption may come about and specie payments be for a long time maintained on an amount of specie wholly inadequate to the permanent maintenance of specie payments. This was the character of the resumption of January 1, 1879, of wnicn, as a people, we nave but little cause for boasting, though we have much cause to congratulate ourselves upon our good fortune. The credit of resumption does not belong to us ; for we did not bring it about by any intelligent act, and did not purposely contribute anything toward its accomplishment. All that we did was to issue a resolution by Congress that we would resume on the 1st of January, 1879 : but we did not take any steps to accomplish it. We only sat down and waited. Notwithstanding Government sold bonds to prepare for re sumption, it did not contribute anything to ward bringing about the condition of affairs which made it possible to procure specie, The large balance of trade in our favor for 1876, 1877 and 1878 did not bring us any of the precious metals. It did not even cause what we produced to remain with us. Tbe Government did not contribute anytning to ward bringing about the conditions necessary to resumption. Had it not been a party to resumption it would have been accomplished earner. Ihe sale of ninety millions of bonds in 1877 and 1878 took from the market gold which would have been carried by dealers, or speculation in it would have been aban doned, in which case the gold would have gone into banks in the ordinary course of business, and been used by them in dailv transactions. If tnere nad not. been any Government paper money, resumption would have taken place long before the time fixed by Congress. If specie payments shall have any degree of permanency, it will not be through any deliberate purpose of ourselves, but because industrial and commercial con ditions are such that we may for a long time violate economic laws and the penalty for transgression be long deferred. If at the close of the war the Government had begun to retire legal tender notes and steadily pur sued that coarse, it then would have been very active in bringing about the conditions necessary to resumption, and might have justly claimed credit for wis. forethought and manly courage. The Rocheater Races St. Julien Sold to William H. Vanderbilt $30,000 for the King of the Turf Rochester, Aug, 13. There was splendid weather and track for the fourth and last day of the races at the Rochester Driving Park. The first race was the 2:23 class. Falma, Robert Bonner and Kate Middleton were drawn. In the pools Wedgewood sold at 50 to 22 against the field. In the first heat the start was made with Wedgewood ahead. On the first quarter Kentucky Wilkes and Dick Wright brought up, and at the quarter pole Katie Bates went from last to first place in a rush. Up the back stretch Fatchen displaced the Kentucky horse, -thereby getting second place, and Dick Wright followed his example not long after, and was therefore third in the heat. Kentucky -Wilkes and Wedgewood brought up the rear, and these positions re mained unchanged. The positions as they finished were : Bates, Fatchen, Wilkes, Wedgewood and Dick Wright ; time 35, 1:12, 47J, 2:23. In the second heat Wedgewood started first. Bates broke and went to the last place and stayed there. The struggle was for second place between Fatchen and Kentucky Wilkes. They came in under the wire in the following order: Wedgewood, Fatchen, Kentucky Wilkes, Dick Wright and Katie Bates ; time 34, 1:19, 1:45, 2:19. In the third heat Bates had the best at the start. Wilkes broke and was far in the rear. The race down the back stretch between Wright, Bates and Patchen was very exciting, as the head of the first horse and then an other showed in front. Passing the half mile victory had fallen to Fatchen, who had man aged to open daylight between his com petitors, Wright being third and Bates fourth. From her. no difference was made.

New Yobk,- Aug. 13. Dr. Tanner has gained twenty-seven pounds. He has got down to three meals a day, and light ones at that, judging from those he ate to-day, which consisted only of oysters and milk. He gained no flesh to-day, and this was proba biy due to the fact tnat he did considerable running about. He was out attending to business most of the forenoon and afternoon. As soon as he is thoroughly recuperated he will deliver a lecture m this city. Jtiis sensa tions and feelings during the period of his fast will form the feature of the lecture. Starving to Death A Man I.tes Helpless for Ton Days in a Lumber Pile. New Yobk, Aug. 13. At 7:30 o'clock this morning a feeble groaning attracted the at tention of Officer George Lynch, of the steamboat squad, as he was on duty at pier 47, North river. He looked around, but the groaning suddenly ceased and was not re sumed for some minutes. The officer traced it to a pile of lumber at the head of the pier, and in a hollow at the top partly covered over with boards he found a man evidently in the last stages of starvation. He was un able to move, or even to speak. His cheeks were sunken and his pinched face wore a death-like pallor. The officer summoned an ambulance. The surgeon examined the ai most inanimate man and pronounced him completely exhausted from starvation. He was put in the ambulance and taken to St. Vincent's Hospital. There he was made to take a . milk punch, which greatly revived him and brought back his power of speech. He said that his name was Charles Riley, and tnat he was thirty-six years old, a laborer and homeless, len days ago he was driven from No. 84 Mulberry street, where he had lived for some time, for non-payment of rent. He went into the street sick and penniless, having been out of work for several weeks before. Hav ing no place in which to rest he wandered to the North river and lay down in a hollow space at the top of the lumber pile on which he had been found. He was taken so sick that he was unable to leave it, and he told the house surgeon that for the last ten days he had nothing to eat or drink. His appear ance indicates that he is telling the truth. THE NATIONAL CAPITAL. Mexicans Violating the Neutrality X.avrs. Washington, Aug. 13. The Department of State has received a despatch from the United States consulate at Laredo, Meafco, which indicates a violation of the neutrality laws on the part of the Mexican authorities. A number of State prisoners confined at La redo effected their escape and fled across the Rio Grande into Texas. They were fired upon by the Mexicans while crossing, and were followed into Texas and also fired upon in United States territory. This is in viola tion of the Guadaloupe-Hidalgo treaty be tween the United State's and Mexico. The treaty provided that escaped prisoners from either country should be extradited and de nied the right of pursuit by the authorities. Laredo is nearly opposite Fort Mcintosh, in Texas, and the state department has inquired if the War department has any knowledge of the affair, it has not, but it will be fully inquired into and action taken if it is fully shown that the offense mentioned by the consul was committed in violation of treaty stipulations. A Counterfeit That Won't Mislead. Washington, Aug. 13. The secret service division to-day came in possession of a new counterfeit one dollar legal tender note. It came from Maine. The counterfeit is on the series of 1879, letter D, and with the signa ture of A. N. Wyman, treasurer. It is mis erably executed and will deceive no one who even casually glances at one of its duplicates. It is supposed to have its origin in Canada. The specimen which has been received by the secret service is so poorly executed that the back of it is printed upside down, and the note is one-eighth of an inch larger than the genuine. The engraving is simply hor rible. The counterfeit has not been exten sively circulated, and there is no probability that it will be. The fibre of the genuine is imitated by scratched lines. Republican Prospects in Florida. Washington, Aug. 13. Senator Conover, who is the Republican candidate for Govern or of Florida, arrived in the city from New York to-day. He will leave to-morrow even ing for Florida. He says in regard to Flori da that the Republican gubernatorial ticket will be elected. As to the Legislature he thinks it wiU be Democratic, but by a small majority. He explains the seeming discrep ancy between the two predictions by saying that small majority of the counties are Democratic, thus giving the Legislature to that party, while the Republican vote in the other cpunties is so overwhelming as to in sure the election of the gubernatorial ticket. He also says that there is but little doubt that the Democratic Legislature Which is to be elected will, in choosing a successor to Senator Jones, take that gentleman himself. The fight against Senator Jones is led by his confrere Senator Call, Obligations of Steamboat Men The Pun ishment for Neglecting Them. Washington, Aug. 13. The inspector- general of steamboats has called the atten tion of masters of ocean, lake, gulf and bay steamers ta the rules and regulations govern ing the steamboat inspection service, which obligates the posting of a station bill on every, such steamer and assigning a post or station of duty for every person employed on board in ease of fire or other disaster. The rule also gives instructions regarding the exercise and drill of the crews, and concludes by say ing: "Any neglect or omission on the part of the officer in command of said steamer to strictly enforce said rule shall be deemed a cause for the revoking of the license of such officer." THE WEST. New Mexico. A Ctold Bona nam A Meziean Village on a Valuable sledge. Santa Fx, Aug. 13. Excitement was cre ated here day before yesterday by the an. jaoancement of a rich mining "strike" in the 1 -.r - - .7 v . 1 tfaxican village Las Flacatas, about thirty j miles distant. The village is built of adobe huts and corrals, and the foundations of the houses are of rock. Prospector Jesse Mar tin detected mineral in this rock. He pound ed up and hammered some of it, getting a rich result in gold. He "located" the streets of the town whence the gold rock was taken, and had assays made with a result of $4,600 of gold to the ton, the lowest grade of rock assayed being $43. Governor Lew Wallace has just returned from the place. He paced off a lead making it eighty-four paces in width. Its length . is not known, but 9,000 feet along the vein has been fixed. Assays made in Santa Fe give from three to six thou sand dollars a ton. The whole village is built on the ledge, and rock worth $3 a pound has been thrown about its worthless. THE OLD WORLD. Ireland. The Fenian Robbery Tracing the Perpe trators Some of the Stolen Rifles Recov ered. Cork, Aug. 13. The police traced the in dividual who was one of the robbers of the Juno and who fell down the hatchway into the hold, injuring himself and as it is suppos ed causing the more speedy retreat of his comrades from the ship. Several of - the rifles taken from the Juno have also been discovered. They were dug up in a potato field near Rochestown. The party which at tacked the Juno, upon leaving the vessel, rowed up the Cork side of the river and landed some distance above the town. Sub Inspector Mayne has discovered twenty of the missing rifles in the neighborhood of the west passage. They proved to be old-fashioned mouth-bore pieces of no practical use except at short range. It is understood that the police know the names of several of the men concerned in the robbery and recognize them as old offenders connected with the t e- nian agitation, although no proof has yet transpired. The authorities think that the captain of the vessel was not wholly ignorant of the intention to pay his vessel a visit yester day morning, although the captain and crew of the Juno express themselves unaDie identify the leaders. The one who fell into the hold of the Juno escaped with broken leg and was carried off by his com- rades. Several additional arrests have been made and strong hopes are entertained by the authorities of recovering the remainder of the rifles. Oreat Britain. ThePorte in a Dilemma A Minister! Crisis Impending. London, Aug. 13. A Constantinople dis patch says a ministerial crisis is imminent. The action of the National Council of the AI banian League in resolving to renounce all Turkish authority and to set up Albania as an independent power has profoundly dis turbed the equanimity of the Porte, and the rumor is that the Sultan's counsellors are tired of the effort to extricate the Govern ment from its host of difficulties. But the especial source of anxiety and fear., to the Sultan at present is the decision of the pow ers to send a fleet to supervise the cession of Dulcigno to Montenegro, and the evident dis position of the population to consent to the movement. The Turkish government grows daily more apprehensive of the failure of its policy of inaction, and perceives that sooner or later it will be obliged to submit to the operation of .European concert as a solution of the Eastern question. The Sultan's only hope is in delay and in the hypothesis that since the withdrawal of France from the as; gressive coalition, England will have too much on her hands to pursue severe measures alone. The Porte to-day has ordered the mobilization of the Second army corps at Adrianople. Good Prospect for the Harvest. London, Aug. 13. Reports from all parts of the United Kingdom state that owing to continued sunshine, the prospects of a good harvest are splendid. It is believed to be improbable that any farther rains at the present advanced stage of the crop will oc cur to injure them. Ayoob Khan Acting the Traitor. London, Aug. 13. A dispatch from Cal cutta says it is seriously asserted that Aydob Khan acted throughout in concert with Abdur Rahman. A Big Haul by Jewelry Thieves. London, Aug. 18.

The doctor of this city who undertook to imitate Tanner in fasting for forty days, has given up the task after fasting one week. NEW ENGLAND. Rhode Island. A Mason's Terrible Fall. Pbovtdence, Aug. 18. William Barrels, a stone mason, while at work on the new Cath olic cathedral, to-day fell from a staging to the ground, a distance of eighty feet, strik ing upon his head, which crashed completely through an inch and a quarter spruce plank. He died within half an hour. He was only Blichtly mangled. He leaves a wife and three children. He was a Scotchman and had been in this country but three months. NEW JERSEY. The May's Landing Horror The Eigh teenth Death A Verdict of Accidental Collision. Mat's Landing, Aug. 13. The two year old daughter of Mrs. McCrystal died here last night from injuries received in the col lision on the Atlantic City road. This is the elder of the two children of the McCrystal family, whe were all scalded and burned. The mother died in Philadelphia last night. The death of the McCrystal child makes the list of the killed 18. There are still several per sons unaccounted for, and it is proposed to drag Great Egg Harbor river near the scene of the accident, - in the hope of recovering the bodies of the missing. The current is swift at that place, and it is feared that som of those who leaped from the train may have been drowed. e The inquest was resumed this morning. The testimony shows that the first section of the excursion train was stopped without much difficulty, thus seeming to disprove the assertion of the engineer of the second sec tion that the track was too slippery to stop the train in the usual distance. The coroner continued the inquest at May's Landing to-day over the body of Jas. Sweeney, killed in the railroad accident. Several witnesses were examined, one of whom, Samuel Lawler, fireman, said the air brakes did not work. He thought the trou- .ble was owing to wet rails. The jury brought in a verdict tnat james sweeney came to nis death by a collision on the West Jersey and Atlantic railroad, and that according to the evidence we think -ihe collision was accident al. The conductor and engineer are still un der bonds, however, to appear before the grand jury. THE NEW DOMINION. Drowned in the Laehlae Rapida. Monteeal. Can., Aug. 13.

A committee appointed by the Chamber of Commerce of Cincinnati have decided to have the three wards of the city re-enumerated as a test of the correctness of the census. Careful computation seems to indicate that there are 50,000 more inhabitants in the city than the census returns show. At an early hour yesterday morning a dis turbance took place in the west part of To ronto. A body of Orangemen attacked a saloon kept by one Collins on the corner of Queen and Esther streets.

Too morn ing operations were active, with quito a feverish tone. Any slight rally brought out blocks for sale. To wards noon there seemed a rally from the opening figures, and the market assumed a firm and more positive tone, keeping up a very obstinate spirit and an unwillingness to yield to cheaper prices. The market In the after part of the day showed decided strength. The Bond Market.

LOCAL NEWS. Hancock "Veterans. Election of Field Officers Speeches by the Successful Ones The Speakers for the Mass Meeting.

Healey 44 Scattering 9 On motion Colonel Tolles was declared elected colonel of the regiment by acclama tion. Three cheers were given for Colonel Tolles, and being called upon for a speech he responded by saying that the position was one that he did not desire, yet he would ac cept it, and he assured the veterans that it was an honor that he certainly appreciated. He said that the Democratic candidate for President was a gentleman whose patriotism and ability all would appreciate. General Hancock had the brains of his grandfather, who sent forth to the world the Declaration of Independence, and the blood of that champion of liberty coursed through the veins of his ancestors. The speaker then referred to General Hancock's war record, to his great service in the battle of Gettysburg, where, the speaker said, he saved the Union army from defeat. He eulogized General Han cock as a patriot and statesman, and predict ed his triumphant election in November next. On concluding, the Colonel was greet ed with loud cheers.
