In sub stance Sovereign said: "If Powderly has resigned I will aoeept the offce of general master workman if tendered me, and will do all in my power to work for the good of the order."

Satlsfeet*ry Work of the Bureau of An*h n mal Idesry--Weather Bureau -Eseut of the Tartif. -- Wsanrmoror. Nov. 20.-The secretary of agrialitnre, In a report just submitted to the pihesdent, regrets the vague character ofl se department organization, wblch, is says, "olerso opulent opportuni ties for the xercise of the most pronounced piternalism," bit he adds that there are many proper ways in whleb the federal government may legitimately serve the cause of agrieuliure. UIe devotes considerable spas" to a review of what he regards the anomalous partner ship between the government of the United States and the governments of respeotive states for the eondnet and eneouragement of state agricultural colleges and experi ment stations, He suggests that the eta lions be entirely divoreed from the depart ment and the sum appropriated charged direstly to them, or that the sec retary should have some power to direct and restrain their disburse ments, so as to insure the legitimate expenditure of the same. He adds that a thorough investigation should be made to demonstrate either the truth or falsity of reports that meseys appropriated to cia tlons had boon diverted from their lealti mate purposes. In roference to the expsnditures of the department the sebretary says his strena ous endeavors have been to rationally re dese expenditures by elimination from the pay rolls of all persons not needed for the efiloent sonduet of the department. Em. ploves when he took charge numbered 2,497. end there now on the pay rolls only 1,994. The frst quarter of the fiscal year be redueed expenditures, in comparison with the corresponding quarter last year, over $r6,000. His estimates for next year show net savings over appropriations for the current year of $869,656. The eolesiled servies is pronouneed de feotiva, largely owing to inequalities in compsoesation with reference to the ser vies rendered. He argues that appropria tiene should be made in gross for the cleri cal forer and full diseretion given the head of. the 4partn.ent in ibe matter of re munaretlion. He statesthat only eighbty even- eaployes in the lassified service came inby sertification by the civil servios comlmiiiog, while 647 persons have been covered into the olassified service of the dopartmont by presidential order. The distribution of seed is reviewed, and eonsiderable sevings shown, effected in the parohabs and distribution of seed this year. In the work of the bureau of animal in dustry the result of Texas fever regulations is pronounead highly eatisfactory, but to norease efficeley it is suggested that a pensalty should be attached for the viola tion of department regplations by railrcad companies transporting inLfeted cattle. The total number ef impo-t an imals inspected the past year was 464,880, total export cattle 6,111,542. A further reduction weeas effected by vesel inspection in the percentage of cattle lost at sea, the ratio being for last year being less than one-half of one per cent. An amendment providing for the inspection of horses imported into the country is suggested. Careful comparison of meet exports for 1893 and 1892 shows that mioroloopie in espeetion has not increased our foreign sales, and the secreteary thinks it does not pay. Further recommendations are made for legislation compelling the immediate delt nation of any animal or caroaso con. demned by United States inspectors, for the extension of work in regaId to tuber cnloeis, for co-operation with local author ities until danger to animal life has been reduced to a minimum, and for civil eor vrie examination for inspectore and aesia tant inspectors, with the requirement of a diploma from a regular veterinary college. Urgent recommendations are made for more thorough and extended efort on be half of forestry. The completion of the experiments in sorghum sugarie announeed on the groand that the stage has been reached when "in dividual enterprise can and should take ad vantage of what the department has ao compi 4hed." Investigations of the ohem ioal character of different typlcal soils of the United States is pronounced desirable, and recommendation made for a small ap propriation. Of the weather bureau it Is stated that the work is earried on with improved effi ciency sad economy. The reorganization of thebureau is partially effected, designed to mdJify expenses and magnify the value of tiheorvice to agriculture, commerce and the people at large. The vast importance ofat the work of the division of statistics is forcibly pseseated. Referring to the possibility of the virtual closing of markets for Are loan products in some parts of the world, due to the high tariff duties upon all produots that foreign ers desire to sell in our own markets, he eays the question is presented once more to the AmeuiLan mind, can any country abat out the commodities and produots of other nations without shutting in thingbe of a value equal to the things ashut out. Refereane to the immense aggregate im ports of agricultural prodnets suggests the lnquiry, ought net a large proportion of these be produced upon our own soll, in proximity to our own markets, where an immense demand exists? The reply is in the afflrmative. "Our farmerswould be benefited by a large number of eubsidiary crops, over production in certain staples avoided, the variety ef oar agricultural seoplies in for mer markets increased and the markets themselves multiplied." Premises of improved servioe by the de partment in the future, and recommenda lions of useful innovations relating to the work in detail, are withheld in view of the Indealite sharacter of the duties, foroes ead poseeibilties of the department, TRMASUNeRl MOR.AN'8 RI.IOITF. Operatones of the Federal Tresanry ter the Last Year. WxansorxTOn, Nov. 2(.-United Slataes Treasurer Mergan submitted to Secretary Carlisle his annual report on the operations and eoaditione of the treasury. It seows that the aet ordinary reveanes for the fiseal year 1898 were l$.8t,.ll8i2i, an inerease of ,08,848~ eover the previou yeear. The net ordinary oxponditures were $183.447,d4, an iaoreass of $18.484,i6.. There was a de ereas of $7,779,779 in the esurplus revenues, redueing them $4841,6;74. Iceluding pub lio debts the total receipts were $71T,871, 214 and the total oxpeadituree $771007,t98. eblie funds amounted, June 80, 1892, to 5786,851,895, and June 80, 1890, to $746.588, 01,. There wle left of the researe or Ron oral fund $187,012,740 in 1892 and $168,167, 391 in 1898. The actual available working balance was $165.945,886 and $156,296,696 on the two dates respectively; by bept. 80 this balanace was diminished to $149,250,268. owing to the dfleiienoy in revenue. In seven months, beginlnlg December last, upwards of $81,000,000 were drawn out of the treasury in the redemption of notes and the gold reserve was reduced daring the same period by $29.000,000. During the next three months, with light redemptions and a defcieacy of $19,000,000 in revenuop the treasury lost $15,000,000 of gold, but the reserve fell off only $2,000,000. Theamount of gold transferred during the fiscal year was the largest ever taken out of the country or brought into it in a like period, beitn upwards of $108,600,000, and $102,000,000 of it was drawn onut of the treasury by the presentation of legal tender notes. With the exception of as inerease of $45,500,000 in the amount of treasury notes leaned in the parchabase of silver bul lion, and a decrease of $80,000,000 is the combined volume of gold eerstilcates and ourrency certifistes, there has bees, the report says. no important Change In the pablis debt. According to a revised estimate, the total stock of money of all kinds in the soantrd June 80 was $2,382,567,977, or nearly $51, 000,000 less tadn last year. Contraetron took place notwathstanding the addition of $45,500,000 to the stoek of silver and an in erease of $6,000,000 in outstanding bank notes, and was caused by exports of gold. In July. however, there began a heovy re turn movementef the metal, supported by a rapid expansion of bank note circulation. By the end of beptember the stock of gold was restored to what it was when exports began. The total increase in the effective stock of money in three months was less than $95,000,000, bringing it up to a fgure much above thebs highest ever reached be fore. The treasnrer remarks that this sad den contraetion and expansion within the space of eleven months affords a striking illustration of the degree of flexibilty pos sessed by our currency. Revised figures for the amount of monesy in circulation, that is, outside of the treas ury, June 80, place it at $1,596,846,829, or about $6,000,000 less than the yeor before. During the four months ended with Octo ber there was an increase of $125,000,000, a record altogether without parallel in the history of the oountry. The redemption of United States paper currency has been un. usually heavy, amounting to $877,000,000 in the fifteen months ended with October. During the past two fiseal years there have been recooned nearly a fifth nart of the whole estimated stock of sabeldlary silver, an improvement, the report says, that is expected to increase the popularity and usefulness of this part of the currency. IRON MINERS STARVING. Pitiful State of Affairs In the Gegeble Range. HunRay, Wis., Nov. 26.--Go. Georgea W. Peok and military staff spent to-day on the Gogebio range furnishing relief to idle and suffering miners, several thousand of whom have been out of work for many months and are in an almost starving onaditlon, Governor Peek and party same on a special that brought twolfull carloads of provisions and clothing, and organized in eonneetion with the oitizens' committee a board of re lief and distribution. The governor and party visited scores of houses, questioning the people and looking into their wants. Many pitiable eases of destitution were discovered. The mines began shutting dewn last Jane, and at present there is not a single mine in operation on the entire range, a region that mined something like ten million tons of orelastyesr, Altogether about 15,000 people are in a helpless condi tion, bat they are not near so badly of as the miners across the line in Miohlgan. Gov. Rich, of Michigan. yesterday issued an a peal for aid for the unemployed in the upper peninsula, and one earload of provisions was started to-day from Lansing to Ironwood and Bessemer. An official at lIonwood stated to an Associated prest sorrespondent that they were getting desperate and unless aid came within a few days there would be an out break and bread riots. Thus far the un employed have been very order-ly, but they are now desperate from continued destitu tion. To add to the horror of the situation at Ironwood there has been a typhoid fever epidemic. Indications are that about 10,. 000 or 12,000 of these people will have to be fed and clothed until spring. TRAIN RUBBERS FOILED. Tried to Wreek an Express for the Pur. pose of Plundering It.

In view of heo plaolng of raw materials on the free list the com pound duty on tollars and cufts, it is said, will be abandoned, and nothing left but an ad valorem rate of 85 or 45 tpe cent. 1'he chinaware sehodule will probably be re daced 10 per cent. The republican members of the commit tee are to be given ten days' time in which to prepare a minority- report, dissenting from the recommendations of the majority of the committee. In regard to the new tariff bill, Chairman Wilson said to-day: 'Tue tariff bill will be given to the publio at 11 o'clock to-mor row morning, when the commlttee meets. The regular schedule was maue public to day because it is reported that speculators are attemapting to manipulate the market on the strength of alleged inside informa tion, and we did not desire to be sonsid ered party to anything of this kind. The tariff bill will be quite voluminous. it will really comprise two bills in one, as it will embrace both a eustoms bill proper and an administrative bill. In some provisions naturally there will be no change at all. ' his will particularly be true of the admin istrative provisions, whpre obanges are net so numerous as in the tarif sestions."
