The Government's Policy la to^.Maintain the Parity Between^the Metals-What the^Saline s la.
WASHiNi.tON,April 30. Secretary Car^^lisle lo-iu-lu made life folio* ins state-^mciit regarding the Hnancial situation:^^On the exercise of the discretionary^power conferred upon tlie secretary of the^treasury by the act of July 1, 1880,1 bave^boon paying gold for coin treasury notos,^issued for the purchase of silver bullion,^and be will continue to do so as long as^he has cold legally available for the pur^^pose. I'nder this process the govern^^ment has been, and now is, paying gold^for silvur bullion and storing tbe silver in^vaults, where it is as useless for any pur^^pose of circulation or redemption as iron,^led or any oilier commodity. Tbe gov^^ernment, in the Orst place, issues the coin^treasury notes in paying for silver bullion,^and then the coin treasury noto is pre^^sented at the sub-treasury and gold is^paid out for it. So the effect is precisely^the same as if the gold were paid out^directly for the silver in the llrst instance.^About ^HOO.noo of gold, which was with'^drawn from tho sub-treasury last Tuesday^for shipment abroad, waa paid out on^these coin treasury notes. No order was^tnadotostop thu payment of gold upon^these, notes, nor was anyone authorised to^say that such an urder would bo issued.^Tho purpose of the government, to pre^^serve its own credit unimpaired, utid to^maintain the parity of the two metals by^all law*.il means, will not be abandoned^utmVc any circumstances.
Inview ol existing legislation,the only^question for consideration is as to the^^ joasuro that ought to be adopted to in-^Mire the accomplishment of these pur^^poses, and upon this question there is, of^course, room for wide differences of^opinion. The total stock of gold coin and^gold bullion now in the country, including^wlmt is held by tbe treasury, as well as^what is. held by banks and Individuals,^amounts to about fTl'i.n ^^,(^^^. When 1^cniiie into the treasury department on the^Ttb day of March, tho amount of free gold^on hand liad been reduced to ^1*t7.^II'J, but,^by arrangements w ith western banks, it^im.-rea-ocd until on the llrst of April it^amounted to nearly 83,tXJO,UUu. Then the^heavy shipments began to be made, aud^two Hps ago we had only about f40,000.^lint now it amounts to 98H3,OIXJ, after de^^ducting what has been withdraw it from^tho sub-treasury to-day for sbipmeut. Ar^^rangements are now in progress by which^more gold is to be procured from tbe West,^uud I hope that a sufficient quantity will^I e secured to kc^p tie g ^W1 re, er e I itsSt^There is gold enough m the country to^meet all requirements of thu situation, und^if ull who are really interested in main^^taining a sound and stable currency,^would assist the secretary of the treasury^to tbe extent ol their abilities, the exist tug^dilUculties would soon be removed.
Inaddition to this statement Secretary^Carlisle said that $o03,000 in gold wai^taken out of tbe sub-treasury in New York^to-day for export. The class of money^paid into tbe sub-treasury for tbe cold^w ithdrawn included $400,000 in gold cer^^tificates, which to that amount did not re^^duce the gold reserve, because they them^^selves aro practically gold, so that the^actual gold redemption of the day was^only $100,OJ0, leaving a balance as stated^above.
Thisis the Orst considerable amount of^c,old certificates paid into the sub-treasury^for gold export for many years and en^^courage.! the treasury officials to hope that^tho banks, seeing the situation will con^^tinue to present gold certificates inpay^^ment at least for the gold withdrawal for^export.
HECONSULTED STEVENS.
CoutailssiossrItlaaat Is a Gentleman la^Spile of Reports.
Washington,April pa A private letter^from a United States official in Hawaii^came in the mail last night. In reference^to the report that Commissioner Blount^directed tbe lowering of tho I'nited States^flag without consulting with Minister^.stevens. Admiral Skerrett or any of the^representatives of the I'nited States ill^Honolulu, the writer states that lllount^did have a consultation w ill; Stevens on^the subject and, while he does not say so^in so many words, the inference to be^drawn from the letter is that Stevens^coincided with the couiiiissioner in the^action. Another report, and oue that^found much currency in Honolulu, that^the Japanese in Hawaii wore contemplat^^ing resistence by force to American domi^^nation iu the Islands and that they bad^received arms to assist them in this de^^termination, is contradicted by the writer,^who states that the Japanese and, iu fact,^all people of the islands are peaceably in^^clined and do not anticipate trouble;^that, in point of fact, the only agitators^there at present are the newspaper^correspondents.

A^heavy rain preceded the suow, which be^^gan in the northwestern part of the stale^Tuesday night, extending and rapidly iu-^creasing until this afternoon, up to which^time 1'. inches had fallen. After two or^three hours intermission it began sgain,^and the air to-uight is lull of mam flying^snow. Tho street railway was caught un^^prepared so that no cars were able to run^regularly during tbe morning. At Minne^^apolis they had even a worse experience,^as no curs were tutilling up lo 4 o'clock,^and ut Stillwater the cars were ^nowcd up^on die street, being caught iu all parts of^the city. Thu storm struck Duluth uud^the lake cities at tioon and raged furiously^there all the afternoon.

Then- was little or no insur^^ance, and the toss is complete. Worse^I than that, the liar I times of the last two^j years, together with Ihe recent bank fail-^' lire, leavee many people uuahle lo reopen^I business. Many of them, too, are utterly^| disgusted by repealed disasters aud feel^I like abandoning the place. Several of tin*^1 stores were closed and others were hold-^I lug ou, waiting for the mines to resume^' work. The conduct of the miners about^town was praiseworthy, as many^of them gave valuable service^wherever ilwv could.
