GANS & KILEIN NOW HAVE FULL SWING, Last Opposition to Emperor Wil. liam's Programme Supposed to Have Vanished. His Ministers Have a Good Ma jority Back of Them for Any Measure. The Tarlff War Seemnl to Be Operating Seriously for Rtussla-Trouble With Wales Miners. DEsnLU, Aug. 10.-With the retirement of Baron von Meltzahn from the head of the treasury is supposed to vanish whatever element of obstruction the policy of Dr. Mlquel, Prussian minister of inance, could meet in official circles. Count Weaner, the new head of the trnasury, will inaugurate his career by prealding over a series of conferences to be held by delegates from the federated states on new taxation pr op ositions. According to the semi-official proes, all federal states have agreed that the tax on bourse transaotions should be doubled and a graduante tax be imposed on wines and tobaccos. The proposal to pines a tax on advertisements has been entirely withdrawn from eonsideration. The Vosalsche Zsjitung says the new ex penditures incurred, or to be incurred, through the adoption of the army bill, necessitate the raising of only 1,000.000 ma ke by new imposts, but it is certain that Dr. Miquel will find a majority in the reichetag for whatever measures he may propose, provided the new taxation is to be so distributed as to weigh little on people who can least bear further burdens. Outside of ofilcial papers the financial plans decided upon, so far as they have been revealed, excite the keenest hostile criticism. Count Wesner's appointment to the imperial secretaryship of the treas ury helps to widen the breaoh already ex isting between Germany and Russia, caused mainly by the customs tariff war now being waged between the two powers. The new sec etary is a Pole, and it is supposed his sentiments are anti-Rnussian. The tariff war remains at status quo. Advicee from every commercial center show that Russia is feeling the pinch of the war severely. Throughout southern Ruspia prices of all grains are falling. The Rus sian minister of finance was summoned to Ht. Petersburg by the chief of the provin cial treasurers to confer with the directors of the Imperial bank of Russia on measures to assist distressed land owners and far mere. Since alleged oases of cholera in this city have been traced , to the unoleanliness of Russian-Poles, the people of Berlin have dismissed the matter as of no concern. The new company that propose to lay a cable between Australia and California will obtain a snbsidy from the German govern ment for sections of the line between the Fljii and 'tamoau islands and the Samoan islands and Honolulu. HtUNDREDI)S OF THOUSANDS OUT. Tihe Strike of Coal Miners in CSouth Wales Is Growing. LonDOx, Aug. 19.-The situation in South Wales, owing to the coal strike, is not im proved. Great military and police precau tions have been taken to protect the collier ies and working miners, The desperate measnres which the men are taking in order to cooerce the coal owners were shown yes terday when a body of strikers endeavored to stop work in the colliery which supplies the P'ontyprid gas works in order to put the town in darkness.

'The working collieries are chiefly in the Ebbyvalo district, end the strikers announce their intention of marching there Monday 50.000 strong to stop work. It is estimated that the men have already lost £300,0t)0 in wa.es, while the output of the collieries has fallen off enormously. In the Midlands, where nearly half a million minors are striking, a more peaceful sitnua tion prevails.

Ormonde is a bay, without a mark save a diminutive white patch, which the saddle eovers. He has a girth of about seven feet and a mseaurement of eight and a half inches below the knee. Hoe s by Hend Or, out of Lily Agnes. HIe was bred in 1881 by the duke of Westminster, at Eaton. Ches ter, England. Ormonde comes from a race of equine champions of the i urest strain in the stud book. His sire, Bond Or, made an indelible mark in racing history by his sen sational victory in the derby of D180, when he startoe a hot favorite in a field of nine t'en horses and beat Rolbert the Devil by a head after one of the severest stragrles on rocord. Bend Or's sire, the mighty Don caster was a grand type of a thoroughbred. Hr created a furor in the racing world in 1873 by winning the Derby, Ascot gold cup, and Goodwood cup, and his memory is still kept green through his marvellons offspring. Doncaster's cross with Rouge Rose, a Thor manby mare, five yeaors older, produced Bend Or in 1877, and the mating of the latter with Lily Agnes, a lay daughter of Maaa roni, brou~ht forth the exquisite morsel of horseflesh which now, after ten years, is considered cheap at $150,000. 'I his great stallion won seventeen races during his career and never suffered defeat. He is now on his way to the ,ranch of his owner, W. O. B, MoDonough. at Pleason ton, Southern California. HE MUST TAKE CHANCES. The P'opalists Will Put Up no Money to Pay Donnelly. A meeting of the populists was held last night to consider the matter of having Ignatius Donnelly talk to a Helena aud ience. A letter was read from Donnelly's agent asking if the people of Helena would guarantee $200 to have the lecturer come here and talk on labor and silver. It. G. Davies said as he understood the proposi tion Donnelly was coming to make money. It was not necessary to tpa to hear prinoi pea everybody agreed with. The people In this part of the country were pretty well educated on those subjects just now. He thought the people's party were not in pooi lion to guarantee anything. Donnelly's talents coold be much better utilized in the east just now. E. C. Carleton and J. W. Rose spoke in the same st'ain. Mr. Carleton said he questioned the ability of the people to guarantee anything just now. In the pres ent condition of afairs if people could guarantee fuel, food and house rent this winter, they would be feeling better. He had always held that the pooulist doctrine was like the old time salvation-free. All the speakerl said they would be glad to hear Mr. Donnelly. A proposition to guarantee hall rent only and let Mr. Donnullv take his chances on the gate receipts was voted down. The secretary was then directed to inform Mr. Donnelly's agent that the Helena poru lists did not see their way clear to guar antee anythmin. He will therefore have to take chances and cnme at his own risk and on his own responsibility. A MULIATTON ROMANCE. Joe Has Evidently Left the litter Root and Gone to Colorado. DENVE.n, Aug. 19.--A dispatch from Aspen, Col., says; "Ex-Senator Smith, chairman of the finance committee of the French senate, has just left Aspen for Park City, Utah. '1he object of his trip hero was to look into the silver prodnoing regions of the United States in behalf of his govern ment. It has leaked out since his departure that the Bank of France would, if desired, establish n branch at Denver to be con trolled by directors composed of Colorado capitalists, with a manager from Paris to represent the parent institution. It is said they would agree to furnish from fifty to one hundred million dollars, or whatever was required to carry all the silver pro duoed in Colotado several years without al lowing any to be sold until the price is fully satisfactory. "There are but twenty large smelters in the country and if a majority of these combine a corner on the silver prodnotion of the country could be had. From the time Frnnce got the silver production of the United States under control she would dictate the price of the metal to England for use in India and compel all silver using nations to come to her for mouey. The scheme, it is said, finds much favor among s.lver producors, and will no doubt take jplace hero if congress should not give tihe silver men something better than the Shet uian law."

McCreary, of Kentucky, Says Free Coinage Should Stand on Its Merits. Whlth Is, to a T, Just What tho Friends of Bilvor Desiro. Catc:lings Declaims Loudly, That lie Is a Ioemnoorat and a Uoldbug-News of Washlington. WAOIINtOTOn, Aug. 19.-The session of the house to-day was not marked by any aci mated debate, but it war slanillcant in showing the inroads made in the ranks of the froe coinage men. McCrearv. of Kentucky, opened the silver debate to-day. Speaking of the repeal of the silver purchase clause, le would not hold that It was a hostage to free ooincge. Free coinage should stand on itsown mrerit% but the only path which should lend to the free coinage of silver was an international agreement, and the only way to reach that agreement was to repeat the purdhasing clause. Catchings, democrat, said he would vote for the unconditional repeal of the pur chasing clause of the Sherman not, and be would vote against any proposition, directly or indirectly, to effect the free coinnao of silver in this country at this time at any ratio that would be suggested. lie had come to this determination after a careful consideration, and after a careful study of the Chicago platform. It had been said that no democrat could vote against free coinage. He is a democrat. His democ racy is as good as that of any man on this floor, and he would not allow any man to challenge or question it. He stood by every plank of the Chloago platform but that plank which demanded the free coin age of silver at this time. He was in favor of the sepeal of the purchasing olause of the Sherman act beoauee It would tend to restore confidence. Livingston, of Georgia, concurred in the sentiment eoxreessed by the gentleman from Mississippi, that in considering this ques tion representatives should rise abhove party. He favored bimetallism, and the plain question is now presented between a single gold standard and bimetallism. He denied that the purchasing clause of the Sherman law is responsible for the present financial and business trouble. Richards, of Ohiq, believed President Cleveland right in attributing to the pur chasing clause of the Sherman bill the present business depression. At the evening session of the house Car tie, republican, of Kansas. spoke in a con servative manner in support of the Wilson bill. He is in favor ofhs ratio of twenty to one, and would establish a commission with authority to change the ratio at any time it is found too large or too small. Broderick, republican, of Kansas, spoke in favor of bimetallism and prosperity, which terms he regarded as almost synon ymous. The next speaker was Champ Clark, demoorat, of Missouri, who ad dressed the house in favor of the free coin age of silver. At the concluaion of his remarks the house at 10:30 adjourned. Rather unexpectedly, and niter refusing to adjourn from Friday till Monday, early in the day yeste:day, the senate reconsid ered its action behind closed doors in ex ecutive session. In some quartero it is sug gested that the torioedo thrown into the senate by Butler, of South Carolina, yester day, in the shape of an amendment to the bank circulation bill, revealing the state bank tax, has alarmed the senators who de sirel speedy action on that measure, and, fearing that the amendment might carry, and thereby cripple the national bank sys tem, unless full time were given to point out the dangers it invoked, they permitted adjournment. A TEST OF STREILNGTI. Plan to Secure It litholut a Vote on the Irepeal liill. WAIIINOTON, Aug. 19.--The Star this evening says the silver men in the senate will teat their strength without bringing up the question of unconditional reveal. The plan which has been devised by the democratic leaders in the senate is one that will permit the silver men to make a test of their strength without the risk of a vote on the repeal bill scheme; in brief, it is to disicove of the bankino bill before to repeal measure is taken olr for consideration. F:ilver men expect the banking bill to be amended in suoh way as to develop it into a broad and general flnninc al msonure. With silver out of the question ameiiond ments are likely to be adopted such as will either meet with the approival of the anti silver men, or not lie violently opposed by them. If no silver amenidment is attached to the bill it is Ikely to pas thie houe. But it is andu.totd to be part of the plan of the silver men to have in muendt ment offered iproviding for the free coinage of silver at the ratio of twenty to rre, or any other silver proposition which mtiv do vilop the greatest st-ength In the house. O)n this amendment the silver men in the eeuate osn get a test vote without involving thli consideration of the itherman retpal bill. If the amienidment is carried it diF poses of the repeal bill in itself, and tl ey ae sao confident this comuposite fiunanoeil monasure, silver and all, oan i;et though the house.

Unconditional Ropeal Would Do rmoralizrl All Portions of the United Statee. 7ho Suplporters of fIneondltlonal RIepeal Are Challenged to hIow lHow len.ilt Could UCons. RALT LAKI, Aug. 19.-Malt Lake buelnesa men have formulated and forwarded a re ply to the Boston business men's alreular in bhalf of a single gold standard, it read ung in nart as follows: "l'hat the business men of the went are astonished at the per slatency of eastern bnsinese men in their efforts to influence congress for the anoon ditlonal repeal of the Shermant ant of 1890 without a bimetallic substitute, and which, if passed by congress, moat coon plotely demoralize not only the west, but all portions of the United States. Judging fom the present condition of finance and commerce, there fore, in the words of the crucified Savior, we say: 'God forgive them for they know not what they do.' "We challenge the supporters of the un conditional repeal of the Sherman act to show, or that they have ever nhown, where in any benefit woold arise for the reason given, that confidence would be restored if their policy is fullyearried out. Indepen dent of all direct sllver interest and in be half of commercial relations alone, we ear nestly beseech all business men perbonally to nnbiasedly investigate this subject of bimetallism, feeling confident that they will unanimously and without delay, call upon congress to restore silver to the place it occupied prior to 1873, thus speedily and permanently settling this monetary ques tion, restoring confidence to commerce, giving employment to many unemployed, and stopping this awful march of ruin and dietrus t." TWO DEION.TITATIONS. One by Unemployed Workingmen, the tthler by Bsnlines Men. WAsHINorTON, Aug. 19.-Speaking of the movement said to have been inaugurated in St. Louis, of urging all unemployed men from the west to move on to Washington, Herman Schultz, a prominent member of the local Federation of Labor and a mem. her of the immigration committee sent to Europe by the government not long ago, says: "I knew of the movement some days ago; in fact. I was ealled in to consult re garding the feasibility of the project. I did not then and do not now aplprove of the scheme, and my most earnest endeavors were expended in the direction of discour aging it. "It was originally proposed'to muster at least 50,000 and if possible 500,000 unem ployed men and force congress by means of a tremendous demonstration to provide relief for the needy classes. I do not be lieve, however, that the Federation of Labor is at the bottom of the movement. It is the direct result of the agitation of a lot of cronks, socialists and anarchists, some of whom are in this city to-day stren uously endeavoring to create trouble. "It may be added that if any movement such as that foreshadowed is attempted on a large seale there is no city on the conti nent where such prompt and vigorous measures gould be taken to repress any nulachial demonstration. There would be no red tape, no intervention of a mayor or novernor from whom action most be had before the strong arm of the national gov ernment could intervene. A move of an arohists in Washington would be a more against the government of the United -totes, and there are abondaut national forces at hand to promptly repress it."

Were the governol at hone the u heaped upon the chief ezesutive of l atate at the citizens' meeting Friday yig by JCx-HeOnator Banders, would donbt1;4 pans unnoticed. The disgusted ludlita4' and the sentiment of the citizens respeg t _ ing the attack would have been rebatui enough. It is perhaps true that the aiter r eats of the state can be best conserved by paying ino attention to disappointed nt4 diesruntled politicians, who improve every occaiton to air their Irievances with lis, K:cmly rhetoric. in the abeenru of thq governor, however, on businesse of supreme importanoe to th - state, it is the better part of good altizene ship to register a protest, not against the personal views of Mr. banders whioh aso not worth a passing tliought, but aglala his Ilagrent risastatenment of fact, I do this wholly upon mv own rslponlibillt - and without the knowledge of the gave ernor. Mr. Hinders is accredited with saying that (Gov. lticknrds, as "the highest ofiool in the state, hbe abandoned his duties. left a deputy in charge and gone to Washing. ton." And further, "that is an agreeable city to spend time in, but I believe the geam tienan who has been elected to the ofee of governor should do hib duty and remain at horne." If Washington be such "an agree. able city to spend time In," during the torrid heat of July and Aguset, how muehl more agroueble it must be in the balmy ale of winttr and the galty of the social season. Yet the painful recollection comes back to the avernue Montanian that senator .an. ders abandoned his post of duty, and the "agreolble city." and spent Imost of last winter in helena drawing his senatorial salary in an effort to be re-elected. It is it fact, as well known to Mr. Sander as to the eeneral publio, that Gov. Itiok. arde' irst trip to Washington was purely an oflicial one, he having gone at the re. a quest of the state board of land commie. sioners to secure, if possible, a reversion of a ruling rado by the interior department against the interests of this state. The : action of the department had not only de prived the state from securing the lands asrigued it by the federal government for the varionus educational institutions and public buildings, but also deprived the state of the federal appropriation of $20,000 fof surveys of public lands. It was to save to the state the lands to which it was entitled for its educational institutions and to se cure the appropriatlon for surveys, which would lapse by limitation in a few day, that led the governor to hasten to Washing. ton to labor night and day in the pertlona heat of midsummer at the imminent risk of his health. Fortunately, the energetic of forts out forth by the governor were euo ceseful, and the state and its inatltutions will profit accordingly. Mr. Hsnders is cognizant of these facts, e and his cowardly attack on the governor, in his absence, can be attributed to no higher motive than squeezlng the jule , from the oour crapes of resentment in not having received the favor for which he Splead when the duty of appointing a sona r, tor fell nupon the chief executive of the of state. 1'ho governor's second trip to Washliag. ton, from which he is now returning, wea undertaken in behalf of the interests of silver. It was universally believed that the presence of the Montana governor, as well ns the executives of the other silver stales, would add something of weight and Infl I once to the struggle for the rights of the white metal. There is not a man in Mone tann, interested in the welfare of the state, who will oriticiso Goy. lickards for lynd'e 1 ing his uctive influence to the cause of sll. ver at his own personal inconvenience and at hie own personal expense. Even wiltl his well known opposition to free soinage, both as senator and plain every day altisze, Mr. >"anders is not warranted in criticising the governor for performing the highese I duty to the state in the crisis of the hour. It is not worth while to debate the ex senator's proposition that $2,000 is top high a salary for any state officer to receive, until he emphasizes his new role as a o"re former" by converting back into the treass ury three-fourths of the salary he reosived as senator, and apologizes for trying to keep the job. Knowing nothing of the hard work, the mental drudgery, the skill and experinoce and the responelbllity required of a state officer. not haviui met with that flattering success before the Montana publi that would justify him in conducting i practical Investigation for himself, Mr. handers makes the mistake of classifynlo such duties with those assumed by himself as senator. which consisted chiefly in draw. ing his salary, talking down Montana's sit. - ver Interests, postponing the military post and patronizing the Helena lobby.
