TIIE SCR ANTON TUIBUNE-TIIUKSDA.Y MORNING. NOVEMBER 20, 1896.
2 SECRETARY CURTIS' " NEW YORK VISIT No Information Can Be Obtained at the Department PLAUSIBLE THEORIES ADVANCED The Visit May Have Been Made in Connection with the Proposed lte newal of the Itsunnce of ISold Cer tificatesConfernco at the Sub Treasury in New York. Washington, Nov. 2.".. Assistant Sec retary Curtis hus bwn In New York two Unys, but will be tit his dosk again Friday. No information in vouchsafed at the department ns to th cause for his visit to New York, but it Is believed to be In connection with the proposed renewal of the issuance of cold certifi cates. It was generally understood at the department that upon the return of the ussistant secretary. Secretary Carlisle would Issue an order permitting the resumption of this practice, he hav ing authority under the net of July 12, 1SS2, to stop the Issue of Bold certifi cates whenever the reserve full below the one hundred million mark. The cessation of this Issue has happened frequently during the past four years, but It Is now believed that the ordinary course of business will not interfere with a practice that has been found convenient for the banking institutions of the country and particularly for those In the large cities. There has been no stable gold bal ance since 1893. When Secretary Car lisle took hold of the treasury In March, 18SI3, there were $116,000,000 of gold cer tificates outstanding, but they have been steadily withdrawn. When the first suspension of the Issue of gold certificates occurred there were $114, 000,000 outstanding. This happened In April, WJ3. After the sale of bonds the gold reserve was recouped, but only temporarily. On two occasions the Is sue of gold certificates was resumed, but It was stopped at both times with in two or three days after the order was made permitting them. Then the sec retary decided not to again direct their Issue until the balance was stable and devoid of fluctations that had marked It through a period of many months. Today the outstanding gold certifi cates aggregate only $39,588,139. The 'ssue proposed consists of denomina tes of $5,000 and $10,000, and will be Issed to such persons as deposit the gold In the tressury upon which they nre issued. These Issues are largely used by banks as a part of their reserve fund and enable them to carry a large amount of the equivalent of gold with out the bulk of the article Itself and without the attendnnt losses by abra sion, etc. CONFERENCE AT NEW YORK. New York, Nov. 2"i. Assistant Treas urer Curtis, Assistant Treasurer Jor dan and 1'reBldent Tappen, of the Gal 'atin National bank, conferred for near ly a hour in the sub-treasury today. None of the gentlemen would state, when the meeting was over, what sub ect had been under discussion, but there were any number of rumors In the street as to what has occurred. One report had it that the conference tvas held for the purpose of obtain ing facts on the financial condition of the country for use in the president's forthcoming message to congress. An other report was that the gold reserve was the matter under discussion, thnt Viho administration was desirous of having at least $100,000,000 gold in the treasury when It retired, and wished, therefore to get the views of prom inent financiers on the situation. The likelihood of the syndicate, or ganized last si.ring by President Tap pen to prevent gold from going abroad, continuing Its efforts to keeu gold in this country In the event of the bal ance of trade shifting, was also dis cussed, according to rumor, as wus the reported Intention of Secretary Car lisle to Issue gold certificates. CONFIRMED BY LATER GOSSIP. Later gossip. In a measure, confirms the statement that Mr. Curtis' visit was In connection with the proposi tion for the resumption of the Issue of gold certificates by the treasury. Many reuuests for the Issuances for certificates have been made. No cer tificates have been issued since 1893, when the gold reserve In the treasury fell below $100,000,000. The law says no certificates shall be Issued when the gold reserve Is -less than $100,000,000. It has been placed above that sum since 1895. Mr. Curtis would not speak of his talk with Conrad N. Jordan, the as sistant United States treasurer. TESTING THE CAMPBELL ACT. Widow of n Murdered Man lirings Suit for Damages. . - Philadelphia, Nov. 25. Josephine C. fohnson.the mother of William J.

Sequlne will prob ably he placed on trial for the murder on Friday. The affair occurred on Oct. 12, 1895, when Sequlne hit Johnson in the head with a mallet, injuring him so badly that he died. The action for damages Is brought Under what is known In England as the Lord Campbell act, and which per mits the widow, mother, brother or any dependent on a murdered person to sue lor support. GR0VER CLEVELAND'S BIRD. The President Will Dine on Thirty one Pound Turkey. Washington, Nov. 25. The president Of the United States and nearly all his official advisers will pass Thanksgiv ing day in this city in a quiet way. The president and Mrs. Cleveland will attend divine services in the morning and eat Thanksgiving dinner in the executive mansion in company with their three little girls. The principal dish at the dinner will be a choice turkey from the stock of Horace Vose, of Rhode Island. The bird arrived by express this morning. It weighs 31 pounds, and is described as the fattest and handsomest bird Mr. Vose has presented. It is by no means the biggest one, for the peerless bronze turkeys not rarely attain the weight of 85 to 48 pounds. MADE A FIREBRAND OF A D00. Beriom Danger to Many Buildings Through n Cruel Trick. Danville, Pa., Nov. 25. A serious fire was narrowly averted here by the kill ing of a dog that some unknown mis creant had set on Jlre and then turned loose upon the street. The dog, which was quite a large animal, with thick hair, was flrBt soak ed with kerosene and then a match was applied. The poor brute, a mass of flame, ran howling plteously up the street, and in a paroxysm of pain and fright plunged through a cellar win dow In the home of Emanuel Price. Luckily Mr. Price managed to shoot the dog before the flames were spread. INSANE PERSONS MALTREATED. Outrages In Vermont State Institu tions Are Officially Reported. Montpeller, Vt., Nov. 25.

It severely tcsrw the state supervis ors of the insane. Dr. W. H. Olddlngs, superintendent of the asylum, and oth ers. The report says the food furnish ed was insufficient in quantity and in ferior in quality. The report finds that Dr. Glddings himself strapped and choked patients. It further jlnds that patients were kept In a nude condition In rooms bar ren of furniture and having cement floors. These patients were allowed no rugs, and the rooms, the report charg es, re unheated in cold weather. BETRAYED AND SHOT HER, Then the Murderer Endrd His Own Life with n Ilulli t. Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 25. The bodies of Herman Myers and Nora A. Richardson were found In front of a vacant house early this morning In a pool of blood. There wns a revolver ly ing alongside of Myers. Two gaping wounds In the girl's back and one In her breast told the story of a murder, while a hole in Myers' left temnle in dicated that he had killed hims-lf af ter taking the girl's life. From letters found on Myers' body. It is apparent that he had betrayed the girl under promise of marriage. All of the letters begged Myers to make his promise good "before her shame should become known to the world," and the letter of most recent date threatened him with prosecution if he did not speedily make good his promise. It Is supposed that they met last night ami that the tragedy was the outcome of a dispute. Miss Richardson was the only daugh ter of a prosperous farmer living about five miles northeast of the city. How the couple came to be In the distant and lonely part of the city where the tragedy occurred is a mystery, the only explanation being that Myers lured her there for the purpose of murdering her, WELL DRESSED, YET HUNQRY.

He wore gold rimmed spectacles and seemed to be a man of education and refinement. Magistrate SImms committed the defendant in $1,000 bail to answer. BREAK IN THE SALVATION ARMY. Captain Turner Itesigns and Will Join American Volunteers. Chicago, Nov. 25. What may lead to a big disruption in the ranks of the Salvation army was Inaugurated Sun day night at La Grange, when Captain Turner resigned at a public meeting. Captain Turner cume from Scotland a few months ago to stem the tide of sol diers who were deserting the army and joining the Volunteers of America. She is recognized as one of the leaders of the army, and her resignation, It is thought, will cause consternation In the ranks . Captain Turner made application to Colonel Fielding yesterday to Join the Volunteers of America. Her reason for so doing, it is said, Is the alleged bitterness existing against the Volun teers among the Salvation Army offi cers. In quitting the old army Cap tain Turner arraigned Its commanding officers In bitter terms. She said the Salvation army had drifted away from the cause for which it was founded in its endeavor to crush the Volunteers. GIRL'S BATTLE WITH AN EAGLE.

IMPORTANT PAPER BY JUDGE KNAPP Culls Attention to the Defects in the Registry Act of May S, 1891 Dis cussion as to the Imposition of Costs on Justices of Pence in Petty Cases. Next Convention at Gettysburg. Reading. Ta. Nov. 23. The second day's session of the state convention of county commissioners convened at 10 o'clock this morning. The question "should constables be paid by making returns to court" was decided nega tively in accordance with the law of 1SU3. "Should costs be imposed o Justices of the peace in petty cases reSrned by them to court without sufficient cause," was discussed, and it was decided that this hhould be done, but that in order to do so the law would have to be changed. A question as to what constituted the traveling expenses of the commission ers was explained in a decision handed down from the supreme court, stating thnt they should be paid by actual traveling done in transaction of busi ness, and not for attending board meet ings. It was decided that the May registration cuuld bo dispensed with. It. F. Hopwnrd, of Vniontnwn, read a paper entitled "some legislative sug gestions." It was written by ex-Judge Kunpp, of Scranton. He calls atten tion to defects in the registry not of May 29, 1S91. A resolution was presented by W. Oscar Miller, asking that the law in criminal cases be changed so that here after when an unfounded criminal ehnrge Is brought before a Justice of the peace, or committing magistrates, that the costs thereof, in nil misde meanors be placed upon the prosecutor. The resolution was adopted by a vote of 49 to 14. TO ABOLISH FEE SYSTEMS.

It was decided to have but one reg istration and that it begin on the first Monday In August. This was framed by the Berks commissioners. It was also decided to change the time of the triennial assessment to the first Mon day in September. Warren county commissioners asked that the legislature be asked to amend the law so that one registration a year shall be made of voters Instead of twice a year as now required. This was agreed to. J. H. Smith, of Hollldaysburg. pre sented a resolution "that a law be rec ommended making all county, school, borough, township and road taxes a tlrst lien upon the real estate against hlch they are assessed " Adopted. The next convention will be held at Gettysburg, the time to be fixed by the executive committee. Adjourned. THE HUNGARIAN DIET. A Protest Agninst Its Being Opened by the Kmpcror at His Palace. Budapest, Nov. 25. In the lower house of the Diet today the presiding officer referred briefly to the millen nial celebrations and expressed the loyalty of the house to the crown. Bar on Banffy, the premier, announced that Emperor Francis Joseph would formally open the Diet on Thursday next at the palace, whereupon Deputy Komkathy, Knssuthlst, stated that he and his friends could not attend the ceremony, adding that the king ought to open the Diet on the parliament house nnd not In the palace, over which the black and yellow Hag of Austria waved. In reply Raron Banffy said there was no warrant for these objections, as no law obliged the king to open the Diet in the parliament house, and there fore he would open the session In the palace, surrounded by the dignitaries of Huncary, and over the king's resi dence would be displayed the national and Croatian tricolor and the stand ard of the reigning house. This an nouncement was greeted With loud cheering. HIS LIFE CRUSHED OUT. Shocking Death of Lamar Ruth at South Bethlehem. South Bethlehem, Pa., Nov. 25. A distressingly sad and most remarkable fatal nccldent befell a tiny lad here yesterday afternoon. A C-year-old boy, playing with his two small brothers, was caught under a heavy old mortar box, which finally crushed out his life, after the little fellow had struggled heroically. His brothers gave no alarm, and the child was left lying there for several hours. With one hand that was free he attempted to dig his wav out. and when found he had, with his tender fingers, clawed a hole 15 Inches long, 12 inches wide and 2 Inches deep in the hard earth. The tips of his fingers nnd the nails were worn away almost to the bone. He could not have escaped at any time, for the pressure of the box upon his lungs was too great. The boy died an hour after being re leased. The little victim was Lamar, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob F. Ruth, 339 Broadway. PANIC AT A FIRE.
