A Possibility That a Loan of a Hundred Millions Must Be Floateti. This I Itetleved to be the nest Way of Meeting the Obligatlons of the Government. WARnrrOTON, Nov. 29.-The condition of the treasury is the question that confronts every democratic statesman at present. The treasury oflicials are not ready to ad mit it publicly, openly and above board, but it is well known to everybody hero that at the end of the present fiscal year there will be a defP it of between $90,000,000 and $100, 000,000 in the treasury. 'Theo secretary of treasury will not yet admit that a deficit really exists, but the bureau chiefs of the treasury department. whose business it is to know the details of the treasury busi ness, have no doubt whatever on the sub ject and do not hesitate to say so. Every democrat of standing who has paid any at tention to the finances of the government, the appropriations and the revenues, has no doubt that a deficit Is inevitable, just as certain as the end of the fiscal year. Per haps a majority of democrats prefer an in come tax. The eastern democrats, howev er, as a general rule, are opposed to this method of raising revenue and insist that the best way is to be entirely confidential with the people, to recognize the' existing conditions of the treasury with a plain statement to the people, with a recommen dation of a new government loan of $100, 1000,000, to be floated at three per cent at the most, and perhaps at 2% per cent. The floating of a now issue of bonds would un doubtedly be the most popular with the moneyed interest, especially with the bank ere. It would help the national banks to continue in business for many years more, but the western and southern democrats prefer to provide for the emergency of the treasury at the moment. These are out spolt. advocates, as a general rule, of an ir- oina.. Everybody admits that the expenses of the government must be pro vided for. It is not the fault of the demo crats that a republican administration has committed hara-kiri with the finances and changed a condition of $100,000,000 to the credit of the people in 1889 into $100,000,000 of indebtedness in 1893. Officials of the treasury department are discussing the democratic embarrassment with immense delight. but it is the belief of the more responsible men in the treas ury department that the issuance of $100, 000,000 in bonds would be the popular method of crossing the hgly bridge that will confront the democrats when they come into power. It is assumed tnat a loan would not be porular with the masses of the people, but the democrats ale not re sponsible for the loan, and as many an honest lean has to mortgage his farm or his house to make ends meet, to the demo cratio party, who are to assume the respon sibilities of the government on March 4, will havei to struggle to make ends meet tend to find out the best methods of en countering the emergency. 'Ihe most general popular idea among democrats, it the exigencies of the treasury can be bridged over, is the appointment of a caucus committee, embracing members of both houses, to sit during the summer and draft a tariff bill; that congress should be called in extra session in October. the presi dent should send his message recommend ing the general features of the taliff bill to be nureed uon in the meantime, and that it should bhe rushed through both houses as a strictly democratic measure. The caucus committee already sugaested is Carlible, Vest. Mills anid Gorman for the senate; Bynum, of Indiann, l]reckinridgeo, f Arkan sns, McMillan of Tennessee. Turner of Georgiat, Wilson of West Virginia, Warner of NOw York, Stovens of Massachusetts and Outhwaito of Ohio, on the p irt of the house. The theory is that this committee should confer with the president and mem bers of his cabinet. 'I l:or is no longer a doubt that the dem ocrnts will lbe able to control both houses. Monltnal will send a democratic senator in the place of ' anders, and according to the latest acrounts VWyoming will also send a demiocrat in Warren's place. 'There is ino doubt conceirning California. Wisconsin and New York. This will give the demo crats cont ol of the sonatre. exclusive of the third pa-tly menl, and it is no secret now to say that Kyle, I'ellcr :,d Stewart, of Ne vadit. have already sio iiied their intention of jointing with the democrats in the o - taurzation of the senate and voting with the democrats on all tariff questions.

Wyomnig Fueloenisls Will Elect a Demo orat United Slates Naientor. CnIIaVaN,U. Wyo., Nob. 27.--It now seems certain that the democrats and people's party, whleh fased in this state, will have a majority on joint ballot in the legislature. The vote for United States senator will be twenty-seven futosion and twenty-two repub lican. There will be contests in two coun ties. The fight will be on members for the house of representatives, which will be fusion, while the state senate will be repub licna. 'these contests will be carried to the legislature. The state constitution pro vides that each branch of the legislature shall be the judge of the rights of those claiming memberehic. ltepublicans ale set claiming the legislature and both aides have agents in the close countioes. Each side claims that tile other is designing freads. Republicans control the state elec tion machinery, but both parties have an even show in the pivotal counties, The republicans are straining every nerve to return T. E. Warren to the United States senate, but they cannot succeed. The fu sion aspirants are democrats. The demo. cratio party has really absorbed the peon ple's party. The democrats actually in the race for Warren's seat are George W. Jinx ter, manager of the Western Union Beef company and a son-in-law of the wealthy Tennessee MucGhee; A. L. New, nephew of John C. New, and the man who contducted the Wyoming campaign; Samuel T. Corn, who was sent here from Illinois by Cleve land to be a federal district judge in terri torial days, and Nellie Corthell, a young lawyer who has grown up with the country. HORROR AT A BULL FIGHT. Terrorized Animals Among the Spectat ors WhVIo Came to see Them Die. SALTrLLro, Mex., Nov. 27.-The mayor of Arteaga, a town forty miles southeast of this place, arrived hero this morning and relates a thrilling story of an accident which occurred there yesterday, and the ob ject of his visit was to secure medical aid for the unfortunate victims. The fall fes tivals opened in Arteaga last week, the features of which were thebull fights. The great event of the week was postponed un til yesterday, when four wild bulls were turned into the ring at once. About four o'clock, when over 8,000 spectators were present, the bull fighters took their places and the animals were sent into the arena. After working up the bulls into a state of frenzy a matador attempted to kill the first bull. The wounds were not fatal, and the bellowing and wild capers of the wounded animal stampeded the others, and they made a united rush against the barricade made for the protection of the spectators. The barricade gave way and the bulls rushed frantically into the crowd, tossing people right and left. In the height of the excitement the seats collapsed and fully fifty peosons sustained broken limbs and severe internal injuries. while a number were otherwise injured. The bulls killed one person and wounded ten others. THE KIND OF A MAN HE IS. A Herald Story About Clteeland's Rejec tion of a Bargain. NEW YORx, Noy. 27,-"I will appeal from the machine to the people; this very night I will issue declarations to the electors of the state telling them the proposition you made me and the reason why I am not able to ac cept it; I will ask them to choose between us. Such is my confidence in the people that before the week ends I believe your machine will be in revolution against you. I cannot make the promises you ask." In the loregoing words, the Herald says to-day, Glover Cleveland replied to a proposition made by Lieut. Gov. Sheehan at the mem o able Vict.o'la hotel dinner Sept. 8, which was productive of ao much gossip. Within ten minutes Murphy and -heehan with drew their request for pledges or promisse, and accepted the situation as they found it, lefore they left the room they were pledged to cupport the ticket as vigorously as if their terms had been agreed to. NOT A SECRET BALLOT. A a an Franciscan, Partly Tlllnd, Objects to the Australian Law. SAN FANcsteco, Nov. 27.-Judge Lawler last night granted a temporary injunction restraining the election commissioners from proceeding with the official canvass of the vote cast in this city at the recent election. The complainant, James Welsh, alleges that the Australian ballot law is illegal, nas being partly blind, and being colupelled to cull in outside assistance to ,nmake up his ballot, the law prevented him from enjoying the asereov of ballot guar tanteed under it. Welsh's attorney says that the results of the national election will not be atffected by the suitr, but that a suc cessful suit would invalidate the legislative and municiplal elections in this state. tie Drew on the Fountain Too Often. New YOIaR, Nov. 27.-Capt. Edgar James Vernell, an educated Englishman, is a prisoner at police headquarters, charged with forgery.

LOST,STRAYED OR STOLEN The Much-Expected Comet Did Not Show Itself to the Helena r People. t This May Have Been Due to the } Heavy Clouds Over head. hat Astronomers bay It Is Running Rtap Idly Away, anrd One Hays It Has Hit Already. As soon as it got dark last night people a began looking at the heavens for the big comet. The clouds were heavy and for a time It looked as if they would not roll by. About nine o'clock the moon faintly shone a through the dark scroll and a few stars ap peared, but at 10, the time announced for the appearance of the celestial wonder with its hb id four times larger than the moon, the heavens were dark. The observers in Helena were in the dark. Whether the comet went scooting by no one can tell. It may be behind time. Even the astrono mere do not agree about the thing. Some I say it is going away from the earth and if that be true, by this time it must be out of sight, considering that it travels fifteen miles a second. Shortly after midnight it cleared up and a fine view of the heavens was presented, but the comet was not visi ble. The constellation of Andromeda could be plainly seen, but a careful survey with the naked eye failed to disclose the much looked for and much talked about nebulous body in its neighborhood or any where else. About the time announced for its appear ance and for an hour afterward here and there on Main street could be seen small groups of men and boys with their heads thrown back and uttering exclamations of wonder. They fooled a few people, who rushed out into the streete and saw nothing but the dark clouds. It was a~insing to hear some of the expressions made by dif ferent persons about the comet. One man who had been reading a sensational New York paper firmly believed that the comet would be only eight miles from the earthat 10 o'clock last night. Others bad never heard of it before and looked upon it as a I joke. A colored woman stood on South Main street for an hour looking at Mount Helena, evidently expecting to see it burst up into the sky from that direction. One of the ideas advanced by a man in a crowd r was that the thaw last night was caused by the intense heat of the flying mass as it went by. A few minutes after 10 o'clock there were three violent rings of the telephone in the editorial rooms of TIHE INDEI'ENDENT. The call was from oneof the firemen at the city hall station. He wanted to know what was the matter with the comet. He was told that it was thought it was on time but the clouds were in the way, something that had been overlooked and that he had better ring up Observer Glass. Before he uang off the fireman wanted to know if itwas Biela's. Moving Away From Earth and Sun. BosTON, Nov. 27.-The Science Observer, a comet circular published here, announces officially two elliptic orbits of the Holmes comet, one computed by Dr. Kreatz and cabled from Europe, and the other com puted by Father Sears, of Washington. The two orbits agree in period from six to seven years for the comet, in an orbit which is more nearly circular than that of any other comet except that of Hayes. The cornet passed its nearest point to the sun some months ago and is now going away from both the earth and the suan. For a comet so distant it is exceedingly bright, and should this prove to be its normal con dition, and it is not due to some outburst, there seems to be no reason why it should not be seen constantly for some years to come. Chicago Also Rhut Out by Clouds. Carcano, Nov. 27.-Local astronomers were much disappointed at being unable to obtain a view of the comet and expected star shower, but the sky was overcast the entire day with heavy gray clouds. Prof. Hough, of Dearborn observatory, said to night: "There has not been the slightest chance of seeing the comet. It is not I~iela's cornmet anyway, nor is it all likely to collide with the earth. In fact, it is moving di rectly away from our planet at the rate of fifteen miles per second and it is already a hundred and fifty million miles away." Dispatches from many points throughout the west and northwest state their inability to see the comet. And Still Another Flyer. I3osTON, Nov. 27.-A cable message from the European union of astronomers an nounces the discovery of a faint comet by Freeman, of Brighton, England. Its posi tion on Nov. 21 was right raecnrsion ten hoors twenty-nine minutes; declination north thirty degrees, nine minutes. It has a motion directly south of three degrees daily, about six degrees south of the tiolmes comet. 'erhlapa It lisi Alrelady lrueck. UnitIc.ADEI.PnlA, NOV. 27.--l'rof. ('. M.

Mystery Over a !lutte Man's Disappear ance in Minneapolis. ST. PAtL. Nov. 27.--Special.]--Aleck Shearnon, of this city, was in Minneapolis yesterday inquiring for his friend, L. N. Tyler, timekeeper of the Anaconda mines at Butte. Tyler left Shearnon's home last Wednesday with quite a sum of money, to go to Northern Junction. near Minneapolis, and inspect a piece of property which he anticipated purchasing. This afternoon some boys playing around the railroad yards at the Junction found an overcoat hidden behind a pile of railroad ties a short distance from the track. Several rents had been made in the garment, alp parently with a knife, and it was soaked with blood. About 100 yards from where the coat was found the ground bore evi dences of a bloody struggle. There is a mystery about the matter and it seems to denote a murder. The description of the coat worn by Tyler tallies with the one found as described above. The owner of the coat was evidently assaulted and robbed, as the place where the garment was found is infested by a gang of thieves and highwaymen who make their rendezvous at the Junction.

A NATION'S FINANCES, The Treasurer of the United States 'JTells the People Where They Are at. Extracts From the Report of the Comptroller of the Currency. fin Favors the Natlonal Itanktnlg ysterM and ,Itrongly Opposes letting the States Take n aland. WArrinO(roN, Nov. 27.--The treasurer of the United States has submi' ted his annual report. It shows that the net ordinary revenues of the government for the fiscal year were $354,937,7.1, ia decrease of $37, 674,638.. The net ordinary expenditures were $3I5,021..30, a decrease, of $10,319,354. 'I he our rlus revenues were thus cut down $9,914,413, including the public debt. The total receipts for the yearwere $736,401,2J13, and the expenditures $8134,019,280. The receipts are divided into two general classes. The frat. comprising the ordi nary revenues, the receipts from loans and the deposits for the retjrerment of the na tional bank notes, showed an increase for the time; the second, arising from the issue of gold. silver and currency certificates, United States notes and treasury notes tend to swell the assets of the treasury, but do not affect the available balance. The first figures show an excess of $88,000,000 in ex penditures over revenues In 1891, and no wards of $2.5,0000.) in 1892; the second shows an excess of nearly $69,000,000 over receipts in the fo mer year and over $89.00,0(00 in the latter. Compared with 1891 there was a saving of upwards of $14,000.000 interest, out of which i surpluns was realized, notwithstanding the cutting down of revenues by legislation. On June 30. 1891, there stood charged to the treas ury on the books of the register a balance of $726,222,332; adding thereto the revenues of the year from all sources gives a total of $1,462,628,623 to be accounted for.
