Miner at Central la, 111., Jetroyingr Ma chinery aud Throwing It iu tbe Shafts. Cestralia, I1L, May 24. About 500 strikers from the Duquoin and St. John mines arrived in this city today, on an Illinois Central freight train, and pro ceeded to the Big Four mine, operated by Pottenger & Davie, in the northern limits of the city. They demolished con siderable of the machinery and filled the shaft with about fifteen feet of debris, dump carts and other loose material about the mine. Every glass and pash in the buildings were smashed. The total damatre to the property is estimated at $2,000. "The Big Four mines have for the past three days been running with about thirty men and yesterday they refused to come out at the request of the local committee. The Duquoin strikers boarded a freight train in this city and forced the engineer Charles Stewart to haul them here Sheriff Ilelms was notified at Salem, that the men were coming and a special engine sent to convey him here, but he did not arrive in time to save the destruction of the property. The striking miners held a meeting and ieft the city on foot for Odin, eight miles north of here, to ahut down the mine there. The sheriff swore in about fifty depu ties, who were equipped with Winches ters from the armory here and left for Odin on a special train. The miners were well armed with pistols and plenty of ammunition. INDIANA populists. Stat Convention In Session at Indianap olis With 3,000 In Attendance. Indianapolis, May 24. The Indiana Populists met iu state convention in Tom ling hall this city, at 10 o'clock todav. The enthusiasts of the party predicted an attendance of 5,000, but 2,000 is prob ably the size of the convention. Each precinct of the state is supposed to be represented, which would mean about l.uuu delegates. Leroy Templeton was made permanent chairman, and a full state ticket will be nominated. The offices are seeking the men, and there are no really avowed candidates. The platform is practically the same as that adopted at Omaha, and advocates an income tax and postal savings banks. A revision of the emigrant laws is asked, the abolition of convict labor and the election of the president and vice president and United States senators by a direct vote of the people is de manded.

Cessation of Silver Mining Will Stimulate Gold Productions. But the Gold Supply Will Still Proye Inadequate. GOLD IX WASHINGTON. It Doesn't Rank High in That State's Products. Washington, May S4. Special. The department officials who deal with figures on the precious metals are making diligent efforts to get at the exact facts to supply tho ever increasing demand of con gressional resolutions and individual con gressmen for knowledge. They are inclined to optimistio views on gold production, and it may be said generally that just at present there is an apparently conoerted attempt to convince mankind that there is a lavish abundance of gold, and that with in reach. Tho views of every one from the mining regions are sought, and congress men from those regions, as might be ex pected, give somewhat contradictory though very interesting accounts. Conereismau Sweet's Opinion. Mr. Swoet of Idaho, in a brief talk on the eubjeot, said: "Idaho's gold output has been about $3,000,000 per year, and undoubtedly the cessation of silver mining will stimulate tho production, of gold for a little while. Tho men thrown out of work in silver will prospect thoroughly, and many will work talings and low grade placers which they would not have worked a few years ago, because they must do something and civn at least make a living at that till a better prospect opens. But on one point I am well satisfied that all the increase of gold thus caused will not make up, or at any rate more than make up, for the loss caused by stopping the mining in those 3ilver ores which contain both silver and gold. It is too often for gotten that a very largo part of our gold comes out of nominally silver ore. Stop producing the silver and you stop produc ing the gold. Such is the opinion of tho best posted men in Idaho, and I am satis fied it is true. It is very plain to me that there can be no great increase in tho world's supply of gold, and that in a f 3w years the entire annual output will be con sumed in arts and ornaments. Gold is steadily growing more valuable, and as it doea so tho wealthy will use still more for ornaments. I know that wonderful stories aro told about South Africa, and every few days we see it : announced in the papers that thera is a wonderful revival in gold mining, and that the product is to be rap idly increased, but it is all rot. When you take the yearly report, at the end you find about the same old amount produced." Oold la Washington. Mr. Hartman of Montana indorses all this and adds a few more suggestions. Ho Is satisfied that in his state also there will be a considerable revival of placer mining, and that some lodes will be worked which would not have paid a few years ago be cause machinery is cheaper now and the men must work at something, but the in crease thereby in the long run will no more than make up for the decrease due to the cessation of silver mining. Mr. Doo little of Washington says: ''Gold does not rank high among tho productions of our state. We have such enormous resources in grain, lumber, fish, coal, almost every thing, in fact, that the amount of gold pro duced in some mining states would seem to us too small an item to think much of, and so I do not remember tho amount. It is a fact, however, that in many sections of Washington there is great activity in gold mining of late. ' They aro putting in all 6orts of new and ingenious appliances on the river bars for collecting the fine gold, and the new processes of reduction will mako t he work more economical. Still I am satisfied that the discouragement of silver mining will not permanently aid gold mining. The two pursuits must be harmonious. The gold supply will in crease, of course, but I have no facts lead ing mo to think that the increase will be very great, nor do I just now remember any one in Washington who thinks that tho demonetization of silver can bo made up by an increase in the gold product. It seems to me that .the depression in agri culture and the general decline in prices must go on for some time yet." Senator Jones View. The view3 of Messrs. Pence of Colorado and New lands of Nevada are much more radical in favor of silver, but neither pro fesses to have any special knowledge as to a possible increase in the gold supply. Senator Teller, however, has some rather hopeful views on tho prospect and gives specifications to show that tho increase in Colorado will bo considerable this year. At the mint the opinion is entertained that the yield of that state may even reach $20, 000,000 per annum before long. Senator Jones has nothing to add to his speech on the repeal bill last October, which is the great cyclopedia from which sllverites now draw their statistics and arguments. He says, however, that as a practical man he is trying to exploit gold mines because the world is now willing to pay high for gold. The committee rooms where the finan cial question is chiefly discussed are pretty well supplied with documents from for eign sources in which much is made of tho wonderful prospects in South Africa, one report going so far as to say that in the great Wittwatcrsrand district there aro ris ing above each other eight blanket beds of gold bearing quartz, as shown by govern ment borings, and that there is certainly gold enough there and easily obtainable to supply the civilized world with $1,000 per capita. At all thia Senator Jones snitfs contemptuously and says it is simply the work of London and South African papers, which are booming the stock of tho min ing companies. As a matter of fact, the yield of all Africa south of the equator has not yet exceeded $8,000,000 per year. The figures aro tedious too tedious perhaps for a dispatoh like this but the subject excites so much interest here s that the whole country will soon be invited to con sider it, and every scrap of information, as well as the views of those best in formed, is eagerly sought for. The Bribery Charges. So far as there is any expression of feel ing on the wholesale charges of bribery against senators it is of disgust and con tempt. No one believes that either Sena tor Kyle, Hunton or anybody else would listen to a proposition to sell a vote for money, but back of this, there is a real question between tho two parties, each al leging that he story was started by the other to bring outside influence to bear UDon the aenajje, arid that Is really what the investigation aims at. Judge Holmsn'i forecast that the critics would fall upon this year's Indian appropriation bill with more than the usual fury has been fully justified, but he insists that he has dis pensed with many needless offices and ef fected valuable reforms. "The thing that hurts," he says, "is the abolition of so many sinecures. There were many posi tions where the pay was good and the eerr ice very light." SMITH'S APPEAL HEARD. Presbyterian General Assembly Hearing the C of Henry Preserved Smith. Sabatooa, N. Y., May 24. The interest in the case of the appeal of Prof. Smith was early manifest this morning and during the devotional service the gallery was unusually full. The only vacant seats at the opening of the general as sembly at half past 9 o'clock were two reserved for the family of Prof. Smith. They remained vacant until the appeal case was ready and then Mrs. Smith en tered, accompanied by Mrs. Briggs, of New York, Dr. Henry M. Field, Dr. Kol lin A. Sawyer and Prof. Smith's mother and brother. The judicial committee asked to have their report on the Smith case returned to them for slight change. This was granted, and the proposed change wa3 made affecting the rule for the hearing of members of the assembly. It was provided that the assembly shall be heard upon roll call, three minutes being grant ed to each member. The assembly was constituted as a court, and the reading of the records in the case proceeded with. The papers contain the record of the synod, the no tice of appeal and the appeal of Prof. Smith. After reading these papers the assem bly, without opposition, agreed to enter tain the appeal of Prof. Smith, and at half past ten o'clock the argument on the appeal was begun by Dr. Smith. The reading of the full records was waived, except so far aa they were to be used in the argument. Prof. Smith stated that he proposed only to argue six of the grounds of ap peal instead of twelve. The argument at the start concerned the existence of prejudice in the mem bers of the presbytery which originally tried him. PrOf. Smith sought to show that the records of the original trial proved that the judiciary was prejudiced in that it allowed members of the body to sit in the case who had published opinions touch ing as to the guilt of the accused. lie claimed that the inerrancy of the original autographs of scripture was entirely outside of the doctrine of in spiration and independent of it. It was further shown that the doctrine of iner rancy has a theological origin, not a biblical origin, and that the concern as it stands is no support to the position of the prosecution. Prof. Smith went on to show that the Washington assembly evaded the issue raised by the doctrine of the confession, in failing to declare that the scriptures not only "are" the word of Grod but "are" inerrant. A telegram sending fraternal greetings and wishing godspeed from the southern Presbyterians was read by the clerk and the assemblv took a recess. HAS HILL GIVEN IX? Senator Gorman Snld -A.11 Democrats Would Support Tariff Bill. Washington. May 24. Senator Gor man's practical assurance in his speech yesterday that the Democratic party in the senate was now united in support of the tariff bill has led to a renewal of speculation as to the attitude of Senator Hill. There is a difference of opinion as to whether Mr. Gorman meant to include Senator Hill on the list of supporters or to create the impression that the bill would have the support of the Demo cratic majority without Hill's assistance; but it ia considered probable by those high in the councils of the Maryland senator that he had assurance that the bill would have the support of Mr. Hill when the final test should come. Mr. Hill has said since his return from New York that he would not offer any opposition to the tariff features of the bill, which is taken to mean that while he is still unreconciled to the income tax, he is disposed to accept the other parts of the bill a3 the best obtainable and concentrate his opposition upon the income tax. Members of the finance committee say that this provision will be retained at all hazards, and they are beginning to think that Mr. Hill will accept the bill in the end with this provision in its mod ified form. Mr Hill yesterday voted against laying the bill on the table but that vote was without special significance except that it indicated that the New York senator thought that the effort to secure tariff legislation should not be abandoned. When asked whether he cared to say anything apropos of Mr. Gorman s speech Mr. Hill replied that he did not desire to talk about it at all. WITH NON-UNION MINERS. Mines at Cripple Creole To Be Opened Under Protection of Armed Mes. Denver, May 24. Within a few days both the Florence & Cripple Creek and the Midland Terminal railroads will be completed to Cripple Creek and it is un derstood the owners of the large mines, closed since February 1 on account of a strike, will undertake to operate their property with non-union miners. A force of 300 deputies, many of them ex-policemen, is being organized in Den ver and Colorado Springs to protect the men who chose to work on the terms of fered by the mine owners. Winchesters and 10,000 rounds of am munition have been bought in this city for the use of these guards. As the strikers have built fortifications at the summit of Bull Hill commanding the en trances to the principal mines as Cripple Creek, there is likely to be bloodshed when the mines are reopened. A few of the attractions to be given by the Fraternal Aid associations at Ham ilton hall Friday and Saturday, May .25 and 26: The Quaker dance by Misses Leora Strahl, Bella Watts and Lillian Pierson will assuredly be one of the many attractive novelties of the dancing carnival at Hamilton hall Friday and Saturday evenings.

EWS OF KANSAS. .Winfleld's New Creamery is Now in Hunninc: Order. It is the Largest One Wsst of St. Louis,, OTHER STATE NEWS. State University to Send Oat a Geological Expedition. Winfikld, May 24. Winfleld's new creamery has been completed. There are over 500 creameries in Kansas but this is the largest west of St. Louis, the next largest being at Abilene. The building is 48x60 and is frost proof. The main room where the churning is done, is 48x32 feet. In this room are four large vats of six hundred gallons capacity each, and four large churns of four hundred gallons each, together with tanks, troughs, piping and machinery necessary to run the business. The process of butter making is to temper the milk in the large six hun dred gallon vats, which is done by a process of water and steam. When the cream is ready for the churn it is con ducted to the large four hundred gallon churn by piping. The capacity is ten thousand pounds per day and as the average quality of milk will make four pounds of butter to the hundred pounds of milk, this will furnish a market for twenty-five hun dred pounds of milk daily, and is a grand thing for the farmers and dairymen. WHAT IT. RILEY COST. The Government Has KxpeDdad Nearly $1,000,000 In Fitting I Up. Junction City, May 24. The official figures show that the total expenditures in the rebuilding of Ft. Riley up to date, to fit the post for it3 present use as a United States cavalry and light artillery school, approximate closely the sum of one million dollars, ($1,000,000). The expenditures in the post quarter master's department for the fiscal year .ending June 30, 1893, on account of pur chases, construction, repairs, civil em ployes, etc., aggregate $121,332. Since that time up to the end of March, 1894, on these same accounts, $71,269 have been expended. '1 he civil employes' pay roll amounts to almost $2,000 per month, not includ ing the "extra duty" pay roll, which va ries considerably, but averages about $200 per month. The military pay roll foots up about ten times that of the civil, or $20,000 per month, about equally divided between, say, forty-five commis sioned officers and 750 enlisted men. The coal used last year cost $19,800. This year it will cost a couple of thous and more, because of a better grade be ing consumed. ALAS, THE POTATO CROP In the Vicinity of Lawrence the Damage Is Very Great. Lawrence, May 24. The potato crop of the Kaw valley in this vicinity is re duced one-half by the recent frosts. Inquiry shows that all the way from Williamstown and Edwardsville and even further down along the Kaw the frost had done damage. Some entire fields were devastated and others only in part. One farmer who lives north of the city estimates that 500 acres of potatoes within two miles of the city were in jured, and that 350 of these were de stroyed so that only small and unmarket able potatoes will grow upon the vines. In many of the fields the farmers went out and began the planting of corn, be lieving that they might get something out' of the land in that way, even if the potato crop was lost. The Kaw valley farmers have reduced the acreage of potatoes one-half since last Sunday morning. Between Eudora and Lawrence there was something near 1,300 acres in potatoes, now there is 650 all told. This frost with the price that follows will check the rush for potatoes another year and send them elsewhere after crops. BARY KIT Til NOT BRIGHT. The Arkansas City "Traveler" Explains Its Story About the President's Child. Arkansas City, May 24. The Travel er, which some time ago published a statement that Baby Ruth, the eldest child of President and Mrs. Cleveland, was a deaf mute, has the following to say in corroboration and explanation of the story: The day following the publication of the report in the Traveler, telegrams and letters began to pour in from the cities named, asking for all the information at our command. The desired information was given, and a searching investigation in the east by newsgatherers, shows that what was stated in these columns at that time is unfortunately too true. In evi dence of this is given below a statement of the facts received from Washington and from sympathizing friends of the president and his wife: Baby Ruth is not wholly deaf and dumb, but the tender little girl has not been blessed by nature with all the tal ents which render life enjoyable and bright. Everything that science and skill can do for her is being done. GOING TO THE BAD LANDS. A Geologrleal Excursion to Start in Jnne From the State University.
