HIS AND BENATOK SHERMAN ARE IN FUM, ACCORD. 'The Treasury Is In a Comfortable Condi tion nml Thoro'n No Occasion Por Alarm Tho Govcrnmont Is A11o to Maintain Tills Condition. Secretary Foster mado tho following state ment yesterday In regard to tho refunding operatloliH and tho ilna'ncial situation gen crally: x "About $18,600,000 of 4J per cent, bonds have been extended and applications have been received covering about $3,500,000 more. 11 What tho final outcome may bo of course I do not know. It is probable that a considera ble portion of the balance ($30,000,000) will be extended. It will bo no hardship to tho Trea sury to bo called upon to pay those not ex tended. In fact such payment will add by the amount paid to tho money in the bands of the people. By tho extension wo succeeded In prevent ing a'decrease of national bank notes, and, in fact, havo go far Increased their circulation nearly fivo millions. The outlook is that con siderable more of an increase will bo effected. I am not finding fault with the action of tho banks, as might bo inferred from recent pub lications. I saw Mr. Sherman at Mansfield. I always find it profitable to discuss money matters with him. I do not recall a single -disagreement between us. The statement telegraphed from Mansfield regarding our con ference is a puro romance. While there is less money in tho Treasury than for many years past, it is iu a comfortable condition. Be cause the less money in tho Treasury it fol lows that more money than ever before is in the bands of tho people, thus facilitating tho conduct of tho business of the country. "We are on a gold basis, and there is no oc casion for alarm as to the "ability of the Government to maintain this condition. The Secretary Iiub araplo power to maintain or in crease th'e present reserve of gold. I may add that Mr. Shorman fully agrees with me re garding tho legal power of the Secretary as above expressed. I do not see any occasion for the exorcise of this nower, but I do sot Iiesitate to say should "the occasion arise I shall not fail tousolt." NORFOLK ABIiAZE.

D., had announced that services in mem ory of tho lato James Russoll Lowel would bo hold In Westminster Abbey to-morrow, but tho plan was abruptly changed and tho serv ices woro hold to-day. Manv of tho Ameri cans in tho city who wore desirous of attend ing tho services had no knowledge of tho changed arrangements, and consequently thoy were not presont. Special seats had been ar ranged In the choir, aiid these wore reserved for Americans. Among those who attended tho services was tho Hon. Robert T. Lincoln, tho United States Minister. Tho ceremony was very impressive. After tho reading of tho flf toeuth chapter of Corin thians a hymn was sung. Canon Farrar then delivered tho oration. Ho said: "It is only fitting that wo should gather to pay a tribute of respect and Gratitude to the great and famous poet who has been called to his rest. Mr.Lowell was one of tho greatest of tho Ameri can poets of the generation. But ho was moro than a poet. He had many claims on tho memory of Americans and Englishmen. Ho was a scholor and a student of tho first rank. He was al60 a critic, but his satire was akin to charity. Though his shafts struck homo they were never poisoned. He was a finished orator. His rich eloquence was un surpassed in either country. Ho had made his second homo in England, where, as well as in America, he was truly loved. Ho was one of the sacred unions that bound England to America moro closely. Tho same blood ran in each of-our veins; both spoke the tongue of Shakespeare, and both hold faith in tho morals of Milton. "Mr.Lowell was one of those truo Americans to whom tho slaves owed their freedom, and twenty million of his fellow citizens their awakened consciousness. English universities ho bestowed upon him their proudest honors. Ho has now passed away, loved and revered by tho two mightiest nations of tho world." Tho services closed with the singing of tho anthem, "Blessed are tho dead, who with lives speaking." Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. 15. Walt Whitman, from his Camden home, has sent this on the death of James Russell Lowell, whom he know and greatly admired: "Lot mo send my little word, too, to J. R. Lowell's memory. His was the true American's and humanity's spirit in the light of his own con victions, aud ho wrought them out faithfully. His written pagespresorve a certain attitude everwhere. As Emerson says: 'We are, at any rate, beholden to Kin era and emlneuclcs for their grand standard of atmosphere and manners,or suggestion of them.' " fd&lM S TERROIZED. Lnwlens SCbaridrels In Ohio Using the .Torch and Poison. Cincinnati, Aug. 15. A special dispatch from Portsmouth, Ohio, says: News has just reached hero ot three more incendiary fires Thursday morning at Rardon, a village of probably 300 Inhabitants.

It was found yesterday morning that seven dogs had been poisoned ,tho night be fore in the immediate neighborhood of tho fires, and a fresh biscuit, split In two and nicely buttered, was found on tho doorstep of ono of tho leading citizens, just -where his little children would have picked it up.

Professors Meyer and Custallar, balloonlsts, and Professor Rosell, chemist, are manipulating the explosives, but as much remalnB to bo done tho opinion prevails that there will bo no rain produced before Thursday next. Tho rain pf Tuesday last is thought not to havo been caused by the ox plosion, except as a coincidence Thoy are, however, hopeful of success in tho final test. About fifty balloons inflated with explosive gas, as many kites with dynamite tails, aud on terra flrma mortars of rind rock will bo dis charged, not simultaneously, but in rapid succession, while scientific observations will bo taken by balloonlsts in midair and General Dyrcnforth on earth, connected by telephone. The programme is elaborate and the matorial abundant, and the science involved exhaustive. Success moans tho regeneration of this coun try, Divorce In High I,lfe. Minneapolis, Minn., Aug 15.

AFFAIRS Inevitable Distress Next Winter A Rich Harvest to Socialism Workmen Pinched With Hunger an Easy Troy to tho Propagandist. Copyright by Associated Prcas. Berlin, Aug. 15. Despite posltlvo assur ances to tho contrary, It was generally hoped that tho Cabinet meeting announced for this afternoon would resolvo on some reduction on tho corn duties. It was hoped that tho influence of Minister Miquel, who still strongly urges a reduction, would havo tho effect of persuading his colleagues to consent to such a measure. The result of tho Minis terial deliberations, as announced this even ing, shows that, although tho Govern ment's decisions aro modified, still thoy are determined not to reduce the corn duties until absolutely compelled to do so. Tho Reichzanzeigcr says that In view of unfavorable prospects, owing to wet weather, tho prohibi tion of the exportation of rye from Russia, tho government has decided as an experiment to re? duco freight rates on corn and mill cereals over the State railways by making a sliding scale. Although this concession will increase facili ties of transport to distressed provinces, their want is an increased stock of grain. Advices from various parts of the country show that largo importations of grain will bo Impera tively needed. The Government evidently re lies on America to supply the deficiency, but the public, and especially worklngmen, are not so easily satisfied as to that. Tho radical press, in attacking tho Govern ment, dwells on the probability that the corn syndicates of America aro not likely to show much consideration to Germany if by holding their grain thoy can force tho markets and so get their own price. Letters from Vienna also indicate that although tho official relations ot Austria and Germany aro of tho most cordial nature, private individuals aro not disposed to sacrifice probable exceptional business profits to mere sentiment. Grain merchants are elated at tho continual advance of grain here. The enormous surplus of Austria Hungary, it is expected, will all come to Germany, promising to exporters their blggests profits in many years. Socialists are not lotting the grass grow under their feet in taking tho fullest advantage of tho gloomy situation to actlvelv push their propaganda. Since they obtained greater freedom there has been a notablo reduction in the number cf their converts, which recent in ternal dissensions have not tended to improve. But the cominir of winter, with what appears to bo the Inevitable distress, perhaps almost famine, attending it promises a rich harvest to Socialism. Workmen, pinched with hunger and goaded on by savage articles of tho radi cal socialistic press, will fall an easy prey to the propagandists. Chancellor Von Caprivi's visit to Emperor William, at Kell, is understood to have been connected with to-day's ministerial decision as to corn duties. There are evidences that tho Government are working in complete har mony with tho Emperor, who has been in con stant communication with the Chancellor slnce.he arrived from Norway. Tho Bourse, which has been depressed all tho week long, after opening flat to-day, made an attempt to recover, but the upward move ment did not last, the closing prices showing a general decline of from J to per cent. Fraud Alleged. Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 15. Suit was filed In tho United States Court this afternoon against W. E. Schmertz and certain of his creditors by the counsel of tho eastern creditors to stop tho placing of tho property of Mr. Schmertz in the hands of Assignee Quinby for disposal. Among tho creditors aro Gould & Walker, Morgan & Co., and Charles Whee, all of Bos ton. They allege that certain of tho con fessed judgments were made for the purpose of defrauding them. Dill Douglass Killed BUI Douglass. Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 15. A Bessemer Ala., special says: The name of the day fore man at the Bessemer Foundry is William Douglass, no is a white man.

Chicago, Aug. 15. It is definitely stated that Samuel W. Allcrton, at tho head of a committee representing fiftoon of tho largest packers doing business at tho stock-yards, havo just completed tho purclueo of what is known as tho SMcknoy tract, lying just west of tho city limits and between Fifty-fifth and Sovcnty-nlnth streets. Tho tract consists of 3,000 acres. By tho Belt lino, connection is given with every railroad entering the city. This action was token becauso tho "Big Three," Mesra. Armour, Swift, and Morris, by threatening to go to Tollcston, forced the stock yards company into concessions which it has since refused to grant to tho other packers. Mr. Allerton says work will bo begun at once and that half of tho business dono at tho stock yards will bo removed to tho new location within six months. Mr. P. D. Armour said in an interview this afternoon that ho hoped the syndicate of small packers would go to SMcknoy; that tho "Big Three" holds a great deal of stock in tho Stlckney syndicate, and that such a movo would greatly enhance tho value of their shares. CRISIS IN HAITI. Downfall of HIppolyto's Cabinet Can vassing tho Situation. Port au Pkince, Aug. 15. Tho resignation of tho vCnbinot yesterday was owing to tho failure of tho Chambers to grant a concession for the construction of a telegraph line. The Cabinet had made this a government question, and as the Chambers rejected the proposition by a decisive majority, they at once placed their resignations in tho hands of the Presi dent. Hippolyto has not jret decided whom he will select for tho vacant places, but is can vassing tho situation carefully. He does not think the resignations will havo much politi cal effect. Tho downfall of the Cabinet has been the principal topic of conversation in political cir cles, and much curiosity is manifested with reference to tho President's selections of a new ministry. But the city remains entirely tranquil, so far as ono can see. If tho disaf fected element has any notion of taking ad vantage of the present crisis to Improve Its position It is working so secretly that nothing appears on the surface. THE PRESIDENT'S BUSY DAY.
