tho cabinot rnietlng to-day Secretary
Foster mado the following statement in
regard to the silvCr question: After a
full and careful consideration of the
law relating to coinagoof silver, Secretary
Foster finds that the act of March
3,1891, requires "that the Secretary of
the Treasury shall, as soon as practicable.
coin the trade dollar bars into silver
dollars." Ho also finds that $150,000
has been appropriated for the rccoinago
of tho subsidiary silver coin into such
denomination* na will Imst nerve to trivo
it circulation. Thcro in constant demand
for small coins, principally dimes,
which the mints have not been able to
supply. Tho Secretary of tho Treasury
has deddod that his first duty in this
matter is to obey tho direction ot Congress.
Confess has ordered tho coinage
of tho trade dollar bars into standard
silver dollars. The coinage o! trade
dollar bars in this maimer will transform
what costs $5,087,795. into $0,148,281
standard dollars. The Secretary
finds that it will require perhaps four
months to porforai the work of coining
trado dollar bars into standard dollars
and recoining the Subsidiary silver.
Therefore, the qui'stfoftof the continued
coinage of silver dollaitens heretofore is
not a practical ono atfrcsent.

Loxnos, Juno 23.?.Mr. I'nrnell, during
liia interview at Brighton to-day
upon liia marriage to Mrs. O'Sliea, eaid
that ho found it impossible to procures
marriage license for any country church,
and in order to prevent delay ho
thought it best io have the ceremony
performed at tlio registry office at Steyulng,
near Brighton. Mr. Famuli
added that the church ceremony would
be celebrated in I.ondo? as soon as he
and Mrs. Parnell were able to put in a
fortnight's residence there. This would
probably bo after the elections at Carlow
for a successor in Parliament to the
Into O'Qorman Mahon. Mr. Parnell
also, in referring to the religious ceremony
which is to take place in Ix>ndon,
said that even ill this ho would do his
best to prevent outsiders froin being
present, "especially reporters," he
added, with a smile.
ahkqu it no lntcimeu la lane .in acuvo
part in this Carlow election, iir. i'uriiell
replied: "1 shall ccrtainly go to Carlow.
In fact, i start to-morrow night if
I can possibly manage to do so. I am
confidant that wo sliull win."
This olection, it may be stated, is the
only election since the O'Sliea divorce
proceedings which Mr. Parnell has had
a chance of winning. lie will tnk?Mrs.
1'arnell with him to Carlow if he can
possibly do so, but Mrs. l'arnull id
known /to be a bad sailor, and, on the
other hjnd, she is compelled to remain
near Ju* lawyers, owing to the coming
trial o(lho will suit in which she and
her burners aro interested in respect
to thejHltham property.
Mr. yjrnell intends in the future to
devote special attention to the Irish industrial
question, in which he is" more
interested than any other question at
present. Kecontlv Mr. I'arnoll has
given general support to Mr. Balfour's
Irish land bill, Believing it is a good
In conclusion, Mr. Parnell said lie intends,
if- possible, to visit the United
States du'tlng the coming autumn, being
of the opinion that the sentiment of
tho Irish and Irish-Americans on the
other sideof the Atlantic is in his favor.
Consequently, Mi". Parnell will try to
attend the Irish National Convention
to be hold in Baltimore. Md., during
the fall.
When Mr. Parnell was asked \vhat lie
thought would be tlio political etteet ef"
his ihurriage to Mrs. O'Shea, he said
that lie had not given that question a
thought, and that he did not intend to
think of what the effect of his marriage
would be. lie and his wite, Mr. l'arnell
exclaimed, wore perfectly happy
and he was now experiencing greater
happiness than over previously during
the entire course of his life. The reporter
with whom Mr. Parnell had this interview
adds: "I navorsaw Mr. Parnell
in a more healthy condition or in hotter
Mr. Parnell has sent greetings to a
number of adherents iu the House of
Commons, expressing pleasure that the
prolonged period of suspense is over
and thanking them {or their steadfast
friendship during his troubles, lie
writes under an npparentconvietion that
his marriage willranidlyonablehim to be
reinstated as Irish leader in Parliament.
A strong impression in the same direction
prevails in the House of Commons
in spite of the know-lodge of the fact
that the Catholic clergy will not accept
the marriage as condoning his offense.

Lniltri at tlio Art Mtdillo Clui*.
Mrs. W. Nowton Lynch is exibiting
vigor and earnestness in hor work (or
tho World's Fair that will surely inspire
the ladies of Wheeling and West
Virginia to do their best to make tho
exhibit which the ladies of tho J.lttlo
mountain niftiu win uu pnviKgw w
call their own, a credit to themselves
and to the great nation of which they
are an important part. Mrs. Lynch
said to n reporter last night that sho
never dreamed the Job sho had undertaken
was nearly so big as sho
finds it. She can turn in no
direction, nor to any trade profession or
line of work in which she uoes not find
women taking an important part. Many
have taken leading places in many lines
where they would hardly be expected to
be found, and they form" an important
uud almost indispensable factor everywhere.
In the factories their deft
fingers find work to do which the
clumsy, five-thumbed hands of men can
not do. Thcirtaste and judgment often
put them in advance of the men, and
where care and judgment are needed
they arc always superior. The ladies
have their trades unions and where they
mix with the men in such organization's
they are usually found occupying oilicial
They are to bo found everywhere and
Mrs. Lynch is desirous that they shall
all be * represented at the Fair. She
wants the working women to bo there
with exhibits of their handiwork. She
desires that the women of Wheeling bo
organized into clubs, each club with its
A litapnrvn'ntnan
jyuiiiMiuu irwin?
working women, needle-workers, embroiderers,
factory women, etc., are to
be organized into clubs to promote and
develop exhibits of thoir specialties.
There is etlll UHOtlicr'eltfis of women
who have no specialty and no particular
line of employment, whom she wants
to organise into a club to promote the
general interest in the work and to aid
those who aw in Jho .ipecial clubs.
There is money to be-rawed for those
who have a particular talent in tome
line, but not money sufficient toproenre
materials. This work can be handled
bv the women who havo no special line
oi talent or inclination. There will be
work and loW of it for nil and no woman
in the city need feel that she can bo of
no use.

Fort Dodge, Jo*", Juno 20.?An eye
witness of Tuesday's flogd, who has just
arrived from Cherokee, states that it is
necessary for ono to see to have tiia
least idea of the great amount of damaire
done. "Why," ho oxclaiwed, "it is
simply terribly wonderful, tho way that
immenso body of water swept things
before it. Houses were but bubbles on
it* crest. I was at Cherokee when the
cloud bursts came, and in less time than
it takes to tell it, a Hood was upon the
town. Houses were seen to trumblu,
Bwing half around and bo carried
along by the torrents. Trees
wero bent and broken like
rocks, and not a thing could
stop tho terrilic onward rush of the

people cot!hi possibly realize what had
happened. The most remarkable feature
of the disaster is that any people in tho
track of tho flood escaped with their
lives. As far tm I know, 110 Hvps were
lost at Cherokee and tho immediate
vicinity. The storm rendered between
:?? nnd'400 families homeless in and
about Cherokee. These are being carod
for in the Masonic, G. A. K. and
Knights of Pythias halls of Cherokee.
The amount of damage will reach a
quarter of a million dollars."
