HeavyShipment! Expected Thla^Walk Nobody Is Alarmed-De^^partment No tea Prom^Washington.
Washington,April ^.-Wbeu the day^closed the treasury department bad to its^credit mllchUj. over tTOO.OOJ in free gold. It^is expected that this will be increased^Monday, as there is a disposition shown^by western baukers to help toe treasury^to swell Its gold balance. Several banks^in N *^w York, loo,are stated lobars turned^,r* ^oW tar greenbacks. There Is a better^feeling, temporarily at least, and the fact^that no bad result was occasioned by dip^^ping into the greenback gold reserve,^leads to tbs belief that none will occur if^^ U found necessary to repeat (be pro^^ceeding. It is anticipated here that large^^hipments of gold will be made next week.^In case the shipments are made, there is^nothing to indicate that Secret say Carlisle^w ill not do ss ho did yesterday, via: Invade^the gold reservo in order to meat all de^^mands.
Theexpenditures so far this month,^hero been heavy, exceeding the receipts^by over Sj.uOO.U/J. This has bad the effect^of reducing tha net cash balance in the^treasury, which to-day was t24,^B,O0O. (If^this amount Jlo.GOD.ouo is In subsidiary^coin and *U.000,1 wo in national bank de^^positories. The exaggerated stories which^gaiued circulation last night and were^widely published to-day, to tha effect that^at tha cabinet meeting during the after^^noon. President Cleveland and Secretary^Carlisle hntl a serious misunderstanding^Vlnch might lead to the resignation of^Carlisle, are officially deniod by the tnom-^liers of the cabinet and the officials of the^treasury department. The. relations which^oxist to-day between .Secretary Carlisle^and President Cleveland are as cordial aa^they have ever been.
Whattoe future policy of the treasury^may be regarding the finance*^is still a matter of conjecture,^for a definite course lias nut^been decided upon. The department will^wait developments and, as emergencies^arise, it is believed they will be fully able^to meet them. One result of the gold^scare has been to cause a good deul of^quiet discussion among congressmen^about an extra session. It is undeniable^that some of them feel that such a session^is probable, and at an earlier date, even,^than that predicted by Vice President^Stevenson, namely, September next.
ThereIs a question as to the authority^of the secretary of the treasury to issue^bonds under tha present circumstances,^although the decided weight of opinion^lies in favor of the proposition. It should^also be borne in mind that if the secretary^decides in the affirmative ha is still bound^to issue only bonds at the old rates,^namely, 4, ty. and 5 per cent., instead of^3 per cent, bonds.
INVESTIGATING THE BUREAU.
SecretaryMorten Decides That the In^^quisition ahall Proesed.
Washi.nc.ton,April 22. Mark W. Har^^rington, chief of the weather bureau, in a^letter to Secretary Morton, protests^against the continuance of the investiga^^tion into the management of the bureau^under the charges made by Assistant At^^torney Geueral Colby and notice was given^to him thereof. Harrington objects to^General 1 olby on many grounds, and re-^s|xitids seriatim to tho charges preferred,^denying the statements that are made^therein, and defending the management^oi the bureau. Secretary Morton was^asked if he would say anything in regard^to the letter from Chief Harrington. He^replied: ^General Colby most assuredly^will continue to conduct the investiga^^tion.

Washington,April 22. Arbor nay w as^appropriately celebrated by the employes^of the agricultural department to-day. A^majority of them assembled in the grounds^where, after a speech was made by^Assistant Secretary Willett, a white oak^tree was planted in honor of the secretary^of agriculture.

Brxin. April 22. -The reichstag now^baa interest in nothing except in calcu^^lating what the result will be in tbs divi^^sion on the army bill. Nobody doubts the^defeat of tbe government; tbe question^is bow many votes baa Caprivi. after long^intriguing with the center and national-^liberal parties, been able to secure^ Tho^house comprises at present 394 members,^three seats being vacant. Out of these^tbe chancellor relies upon getting the sup^^port of ^S conservatives. 18 free conserva^^tives. 41 national liberals. 17 Poles and 19^reicbspartel, a total minority vote of I'd,^against a compact opposition that amounts^to 243 votes and is made up of centrists,^frelsinnige. soclslists and other factions.^Eve* should the chancellor be able to se^^cure tbe votes of a small number of tha^Catholic dissident following of Huene,^they would not suffice to avert the defeat.
Pattyleaders are accepting dissolution^as inevitable, and are assiduous in tbeir^preparations for tbe election of freisin-^nlge leaders who will enter tbe contest^thoroughly united, and will Issue a decla^^ration as soon aa tbe reichstag rejects thn^bill. Tbe socialist committee is first la^tlie field with an appeal toelectors. Tbeir^appeal says tbe party will demand from^tbe new reichstag a revision of the law^fixing the period of the legislature at five^years. Tbe committee Is hopeful that tho^country will return a largely increased^number of socialists, and it calls upon^tbe adherents of the party to put forth^their whole resources, to organise^rapidly. to subscribe liberally to^party fuuds and to appoint candidates^in every likely district. Tbey point out^the necessity of avoiding the appointment^of two socialist candidates in a district.^Thu manifesto is snot her instance of tho^readiness and completeness of tlie socialiat^organigat ton.
Ablwardt'alast chance of reelection^through socialist support is gone. Herr^leaders having become^convinced ol Ibe bad faith of tbe man and^tuo worthless character of his documents.^So Ahlwsrdt w ill fall back upon tbe Polish^group, who do not encourage his ap^^proaches.
Thepapers abound in glowing accounta^of Emperor William's reception in Rome.^Despite the official con 11 lis lice in the suc^^cessful conclusion of tbe Huaso-German^commercial treat), tbe negotiations lag.^It is certain tnat, if Caprivi should retire,^nothing more would be beard ol them.
Animportant conference was held at^Vienna to-day. between Emperor Francis^Joseph. Dr. Werkele, the Hungarian^prime minister, and two other members^of tbe Hungarian cabinet. Tbe confer^^ence did not result in reconciling tlie ems^perer to the prime minister's policy. Dr.^Werkele asked the emperor to assent to^certain Austrian generals and leading^officials attending the unveiling of tho^Uolved monument on the anniversary of^tbe storming of Buda In 1848. by tbe revo^^lutionists. The emperor flatly refused to^give tbe desired permission. Tbe differ^^ence has also widsned on the Hungarian!^politico-religious bills, with whicb the fat*^of tbe Hungarian government is bound up.
AaImportant finding.^Nr.w York, April 22.-A decision baa^been handed down by Judge Townsend in^tbe United States court which effectually^stops the further publication of the Ency^^clopaedia Bntannica iu America. This de^^cision was reached In the protracted suit^of A. C. Black, publisher, of Edinburgh,^against Funk A Wagnell. Henry G. Allan^et el., of Ibis city, for tbe piracy of their^publication, and it is in favor of tho^plaintiffs and permanently enjoins tbe de^^fendants from manufacturing or selling^reprints.
Tbedefendants published what hi^known as the Scribuer Britannica. In tho^F.dinburgh edition there were articles^which were copyrighted and the same)^were embraced In tbe American edition.^It was the production of tbe copyrighted^articles that led to tbe controversy.
JudgeTownsend holds that tbe copy^^right was infringed and that tlie Injunction^must stand against tbs defendants. This^decision leaves the edition published by^the Werner Co, of Chicago practically^alone in the field as it is now recognised^by the courts as tbe only legal edition In^America.
