The Senate will continue in session to day. Under the circumstances this is the highest patriotism. Nothing but good weather is needed to day to make Portland’s Fourth of July celebration a grand success. If the coal miners had been wise they would have delayed their strike until the revival of industry, which has evidently begun, had progressed further. Then they could have made their fight with much more hope of a successful termina tion. Under existing conditions they are almost sure to be beaten. It is said that Senator0\Volcott has suc ceeded in making a tentative arrange ment with France for the free coinage of silver, but what the arrangement is, is kept carefully guarded. Very likely it will be found that France is willing to coin silver if England, will. But Eng land is likely to be obdurate. Judging from his letter to the Rocky MountainjNews, President Andrews has been'reading the London National Review and accepting all its statements as truths. His statements as to the prospects of in ternational bimetallism correspond exact ly with those of thp Review. As the Re view is a bimetallic organ it would not be strange if its predictions were a little too rosy. The Sagadahoc county attorney threat ens to prosecute owners of buildings where liquor is sold, under the nuisance act. There are more and sharper teeth in that part of the law than in any other, and that is the reason probably why it has been so little used. If the Sagadahoc attorney means business he will cause a good deal of squirming, we imagine, among some of Bath’s prominent citizens. Chairman Dingley is reported] as ex pressingisome doubtjifithe tariff bill with the tea and beer taxes eliminated would produce sufficient revenue the first year, and the Senate finance committee evident ly share this doubt as they have proposed a tax on stock and bond transactions which is intended purely for revenue. How much such a tax will] produce no body seems to be able ' to J estimate i accu rately. The provision is to be put into the bill with a view to its consideration and perfection in conference. Mr. Bryan takes great pains to deny in all his speeches that prosperity has come or that business has materially improved. That is only natural. Bryan knows that prosperity will sound the death knell of free silver and relegate himself to ob scurity, and he will keep on believing just as long as he can that it has not come and will not come until he and free silver bring it. Luckily it is not necessary for prosperity to be here for Mr. Bryan to admit that it is here. The country can be very happy while Mr. Bryan is very • melancholy. ^ Indeed as long as Mr. Bryan is in pursuit of the Presidency it is inevitable that he shall be melancholy when the country is prosperou s. The Constitution provides that the President shall appoint consuls with the advice and consent of the Senate. Ob viously it was intended that the President should take the initiative in this matter. Senator Wellington of Maryland appears to think,however,that the Senators should recommend and the President should ac cept their recommendations. Indeed, judging from his speech in the Senate the other day it is his idea that it is an in vasion of the senatorial prerogative for the President not to appoint whom a Senator has recommended or to appoint him to a different office. To one who was unacquainted with the practice that has obtained for many years past this idea would appear strange, but to one familiar with tlie practice it appears quite natural. For a great many years past the Senators have been accustomed to regard certain offices as pract:cilly their personal property to be filled by their friends, and they have frequently enforced this view by refusing to confirm nominations that were not in accord with it. This idea is seldom so irankly avowed as it was by Senator Wellington, but.thatjit is held by all of them they have frequently shown by their actions. Tho introduction at this time of an amendment to the tariff bill providing for a bounty on beet sugar is unfortunate to say the least. We are inclined to think that such an amendment at any time would have been a mistake for the need of revenue is so great at this time and there is so much danger that the bill may not produce enough for the first year that we cannot afford to diminish it by bounties. But even if it would have been advisable to introduce it weeks ago it is certainly impolitic to attempt it now when the bill is on the eve of passage. ^The committee ought to have foreseen that so important an amendment would precipitate a long debate and refrain from offering it. To bo sure they quickly withdrew it, but not before Senator Allen had seen in it an op portunity to mako some political capital for himself, an opportunity which he seems disposed to use even if the effect of doing so is to postpone indefinitely the passage of tho bill. As a rule the finance committee has managed the bill very skillfully since its introduction into the Senate, but in proposing this bounty amendment at the eleventh hour th ey ob viously made a mistake. BURIED TREASURE. For almost a Century the Search Has Been Going On. (New York Herald.) A short despatch, under a Halifax date, printed in the Herald early last week, probably interested all who read it. It stated in substance that on Oak Island, off the villago of Chester, Nova Scotia, a regularly incorporated company with a capital of $60,000 had been digging for many years for tho buried treasures of Captain Kidd; that at last a strong oaken chest had been unearthed at the bottom of a deep pit, and that, alas! as the workmen were about to Dry it ODen. the sea rushed in and filled the pit. That is all there was to the news story,Jbut to the few Now Yorkers who spend their sum mers in Chester it had a special interest. Adams A. Tupper was the superintend ent a few years ago. I had been taking a look at the pits, and Mr. Tupper and I were seated in front of his “shanty,” and I said to him: “Mr. Tupper, do you confidently expect to find Captain Kidd’s buried millions?” For a moment he puffed his pipe. Then he said, in a measured way: “That requires a qualified answer. You see, I am not going to say that it was Captain Kidd’s treasure that is buried here. He was not the only pirate in the business in thoso days. What the com pany believe—and honestly believe—is that certain pirates, presumably Captain Kidd and his associates, did bury a vast sum of money and jewels on this island. We believe that it is still here and we in tend to get it. I’ll tell you why this is not an idle dream. ‘ ‘ The story takes us back to 1795. At that time, as you can well imagine, the country hereabouts was very sparsely set tled. There were a few English, French and Dutch colonists and quite a number of royalists who had left the States at the close of the Revolution. Three of these settlers come into the story at this point. Their names were Smith, Maginnis and Vaughn. One day they visited Oak Is land and while rambling over the eastern end came to a spot which held their atten tion. Vaughn was a lad of sixteen. He described the events later in life to Robert Creelman. Mr. Creelman lives in Upper Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, today. He is a reliable citizen, and so we do not have to depend upon fiction for this part—the be ginning of the search for the treasure. “Smith, Maginnis'and Vaughn were at tracted by a depressed spot at the eastern end of the island, that had been, appar ently, cleared of timber years before. Nearby was an oak. On this oak were peculiar marks and figures. One of the lower and larger branches extended over uie circular uepressiun in im* tana. une men returned the next day and began digging. “A few feet below the surface of the earth was a well'defined shaft, with’hard, solid_walls, and in these walls could be seen the marks of picks, while within the space between the walls .the earth was loose and easily shovelled. At a depth oi ten feet they came to a covering of oak plank. The men kepFat their work until the thirty foot depth was reached, and at each ten feet they found markings. At this point they abandoned the work. There were two reasons for this—the first that the work proved too heavy for them, and the second that they were unable to procure assistance, owing to the supersti tious beliefs of that day. THE FIRST TREASURE COMPANY. “Six or seven years later Dr. Lynds, a young physician of Truro, met Smith, Maginnis and Vaughn. They told him of their search for tho treasure, and he became enthusiastic. Returning to Truro, the doctor organized a company and raised funds to prosecute the search. A gang of men went to work. It would take too much time to go into the details of their prospecting, but in a word it was this: They excavated a shaft to a depth of ninety-five feet, finding marks at every ten feet, as before. At the ninety foot point they struck a flat stone, about three feet long and sixteen inches wide. On this there were engraved certain characters. An expert from Halifax de ciphered those characters, and his reading of the in eruption was: “TEN IEET BELOW ARE £2,000,000 BURIED. “I do not claim that his interpretation How’s This We offer One Hundred Dollars Reward lor any case of Catarrh that cannot be cured by Hall’s Catarrh Cure.

On Monday they returned and the shaft was full of’water. This was the first setbaok. An effort was made to pump out the pit, but it proved fruitless, and it was decided to sink another shaft and tunnel under the ‘money pit’—as it was called. Work was begun, but after getting thirty or forty feet down the water burst in and the workmen had to give it up. Thus ended the operations of the first company. “ The next serious effort to recover the treasure was made in 1849, when another company was organized, in which Dr. Lynds and Vaughn, although well along in|years, were interested. A force of men was put at work. What they accom plished can bo vouched for by J. B. Mc Cully, their manager, who is now living in Truro. The old money pit was tackled It had in the course of years filled up. At a depth of eighty six feet the water was encountered and a boring apparatus was utilized. The plaftorm was struck at ninety eight feet. After going through this platform and through sections of spruce and oak two feet below it, the auger dropped twelve inches and then went through twenty two Inches of pieces of metal. The auger failed to take any of it except three silverllinks,^ apparently parts of an old watch chain. “Eventually in the boring at a depth of ninety nine and a half feet the auger came in contact with a chest or cask. Pieces of^oak, metal and a fibre resemb ling cocoanut fibre were brought to the surface. James Pitblado was foreman of a gang of the workmen at the time. John Gammell, of Upper Stenlacke, who was present at the boring and who was a large stockholder in the company, said that he saw Pitblado take something from the auger, wash it, examine it nlnonltr an/1 nnf If. Jn wnnlrof TTft H P dined to say what it was, and as he was killed in a gold mine not long after the secret never came out. At last the old enemy, the inrushing water, put an end to the work of this company. ■ “The next year work was resumed, and then for the first time tt was observed that the water was salt and rose and fell with the tide. This was important, for it led to the discovery of a subterranean channel connecting with the pit, and having its outlet to the sea at Smith’s Cove, on the eastern side of the island. During the ensuing year up to the pres ent time the work was continued along the line of the newly found tunnel. The pits on the island have been the scenes of the greatest activity, and the effort now is to pump them out. I think we’ll do it, and when we reach that oak chest—-well, just wait. ’ ’ Gen. Hay’s Reception. London, July 8.—The reception of the United States ambassador, Col. John Hay, at his residence on Carlton House terrace, today, was attended by 1600 peo ple, the highest on record.
