Nervousness Caused at the Treasury
Department by the Extraordinary
Raid on Gold Reserve.
Reserve Below $100,000,000 Mark
and Likely to Be More Reduced
Treasury Officials Express Con
fidence in Western Crops.
Washington, Sept. 18 Th news that
$1,500,000 had been withdrawn to-day
from the sub-treasury at New York for
export was reoeived here with surprise
and the announcement created for a mo
ment something like a sensation in the
treasury department.
This feeling, however, was not shared
by. high officials, who apparently regard
the withdrawal as incident to the specu
lative spirit that seems to pervade Wall
street at this time.
By some officials it is thought that the
withdrawals are made with the sob pur
pose of forcing another bond issue.
It can be stated, however, on excellent
authority that there will not be another
bond issue.
Those cognizant of the foots state that
the Morgan-Belmont syndioate, under the
terms of the contract, undoubtedly will
protest the gold reserve against the in
roads of the speculators, and will see that
a reasonable balance is maintained.
No doubt is expressed that as soon as
the grain shipments from the northwest
oome in, there will be an abundant sup
ply of foreign bills on the market to meet
every demand, and the withdrawals, it is
thongbt, will neoessarily cease.
To-day's statement of the condition of
the treasury shows the gold reserve to be

Ieath of the Oldest Mason and the
Oldest Methodist Preacher
in America.
Pittsburg, Sept. 13. Rev. Dr. Samuel
Wakefield died to-day at West Fewton.
He was said to be the oldest Mason and
the oldent preacher of; the Methodist
Episoopal ohuroh and very likely the
oldest of any denomination in the world.
He had been a member 'of the Masonic
fraternity almost seventy-five years.
He published several hooka on the
ology and music when comparatively
young, which made him widely known.
"Wakefield's Thee logy" has beoome a
classic in the life time of the Methodist
Episcopal church.

public has been one of d-aeit and false
hood. Not only is he a rWitiool fraud
but he has built up his splendid reputa
tion as an orator by using quotations
stolen from French nnd Spanish writers.
He is the most orratic, inconsistent, con
tradictory, pitiful and con torn pi ible figure
in Kansas history."
Verdict of Coroner's Jury in Minne
sota Kail Disaster-Coin iiany
St. Cloud, Minn., Sept. 13. The verdict
of the coroner's jury, in the matter of the
Melby railroad aocident, was as follows;
"We find that the direot cause of the
accident is to be laid to Engineer Haines,
in acting on wrong orders. We further
blame the oompany for ordering paseen-
ger trains to meet at a blind siding where
there is no agent and where no lights are
kept; also in allowing the conductor to
send two orders to the engineer, when
only one was needed."

Important Testimony Against the
Accused Went Into the Church
with Blanche l.amont.
San Francisco, Cal., Sept. 13. The trial
of Theodore Dnirant is becoming more
interesting. The district attorney has
proved the death of Blanche Lamont and
has established that the body'found in the
belfry of Emanuel church was her corpse
and that the clothing hidden in the rafters
of the edifice was worn by the girl on the
day she disappeared. The prosecution
is now putting in evidence eonneoting
the prisoner with the crime. The wit
nesses for the people will be called in
ohronioled order, the intention being to
form a chain, the links of which will be
testimony showing the movements of the
murdered girl and the defendant on the
fateful 3d of April.
San Franoisco, Sept. 13. In the trial
of Theodore Durrant, Mrs. James Cros
sett, who knows him well, will testify
that, on the afternoon of April 3, she rode
to the mission upon the same car with
Durrant and Blanche Lamont.
Shortly after 4 o'clock the car arrived
at 22d street and Durrant assisted the
girl from the oar and then gave his hand
to the older lady. The three walk to the
side-walk together nnd stopped there to
Durrant introduced Blanche Lamont to
Mrs. Orossett. A few moments later, he
and Blanche, talking and laughing, walk

New York, Sept. 13. This morning's
World was probably the only regulnr
issue of that newspaper which contained
not a line of advertising.
The flooding of the press room, on ao
oount of the fire, reduced the press
capacity so it was possible to print only
eight pages, and eight solid pages of ad
vertising were thrown away rather than
out the news down.
In spite of the delays due to the fire it
self, and subsequent upon it, the stop
ping of all the tyye-setting machines by
cutting off the gas, the paper went to
press on time.
The World is receiving from the news
papers throughout the country expres
sions of regret at its loss.
The World expresses its gratitude for
the cordial interest manifested, assuring
its friends that no serious damage has
been done, owing to the fire-proof nature
of the building.

Lord Duiiiaven Declares That the
Valkyrie Will Never Again Race
in American Waters.
Doubtless Uncle Sam will Continue to
Do Business as Usual at the Old
Stand London Papers Take
Sides with Dunraven.
New York, Sept. 13. In the Erie basin
to-day, the Valkyrie was hauled into a
position between two steamers, just out
side of the dry dock, where she had sev
eral times been dried ont for cleaning
and repairing purposes.
The crew, under command of Capts.
Cranfield and Sycamore, were immediately
set to work to strip the yacht and pre
pare her for her voyage home.
The sailors worked with th" -alacrity
and effectiveness, an
o'clock had lowered her top-J
moved the bow-sprit gear. '
The yaoht will doubtless, ue Ketou
rigged for the ocean voyage, as she waa
when she sailed from England for Amer
London. The oonolusion of the inter
national yaoht races for Amorioan's cup
furnishes a text for articles in all the
London afternoon newspapers.
In general, the press npholds Lord
Dunraven in his refusal to sail over the
course yesterday without a guarantee
that it would be kept dear of excursion
boats and other craft.
The Fall-Mall Gazette says: "We hope
the Earl of Dunraven will consent to sail
for the propoeed cup off Marble Head,
as all are anxious to see the comparative
merits of the yachts tested, and may the
best boat win. Should the Valkyrie win,
which we think is improbable, neither
Lord Dunraven nor any one else would
bother to challenge again for Amerioa's
cup, which a new trophy would replace.
Should the Valkyrie lose, we know Lord
Dunraven would take his beating like a
sportsman. Thus the races of 1895 would
be brought to a pleasant conclusion and
a further challenge for a new enp wonld
be only a matter of a few years.
"If the Valkyrie returns without a race,
it means that her owner is oonvinced that
he did not have fair treatment at the
bands of the committee, and no contest
for a cup is ever likely to occur, even
though the committee decided that future
races should be sailed where there was a
certainty of a fair course."
New York. The Defender, gaily deco
rated with flags, left Bay Kidge this
morning, presumably bound for New
New York. Whatever doubt may have
existed as to Lord Dunraven's intentions
as to racing the Valkyrie in this country
again was dispelled this morning by Mat-
land Kersey.
He said: "The Valkyrie will never
again race on this side of the Atlantic.
The races are over and that settles it.
I haveuothing more to say on that
Kersey, speaking of the offer of a cup
by Col. Taylor, of Boston, for a race be
tween the Valkyrie and Defondor, said
that, as Lord Dunraven had decided not
to race his yacht again in America, it
would be idle to discuss that or any other
Sensation Caused in Walt Street by
Immense l.old Engagements ror
Europe Bond Syndicate
Anionic the Shippers.
New York, Sept. 13. The engagements
of gold at the sub-treasury up to 11
o'clock, aggregating $1,500,000, for ex
port on to-morrow's steamers, had a de
moralizing effection on share speculations,
and the quotations at 11 o'clock were U
and Yi per cent below the final transacts-s
of yesterday.
The faot that hazard ureters ana im
portant members of the government
bond syndicate ship gold increases the
already great surprise in Wall street.
A member of the firm made the follow
ing statement: "We believed that, dur
ing the first half of September, a sufficient
amount of grain and ootcon ana otner
bills would have been offering and the
neoessity of exporting this gold would
thus have been averted. Our shipment
of gold is an imperative necessity, in or
der to fulfill our business obligations
with Europe. We hold that it will be a
temporary expedient and that within the
next few weeks plenty of bills will be of
fering and everything will come around
oil right."
The firm reoites the low prioes ruling
for our bread stuffs, the slow movement
of cotton and the fair supply of that
staple already in European hands, as the
causes for their shipment of gold.
The Hanover National bank has de
posited $500,000 in gold at the sub
