These men, it is said, will see thai

The outy conclusion that can he
readied is that the Leavenwortu po
lice commissioner:! will do as public
sentiment in their town directs, winch
means that the liquor places will run
wide open as heretofore, and that the
city wil. get the revenue.
This local optiou policy may be good
politics, but it is not enforcing the law

cisius brought against. Governor Lew
Leavenworth is on the Kansas side
ot the Missouri river and tiiere is no
nood reason why saloons or opeu
joinU should do business in defiance
of the law and witti the consent of the
olhcers of tue law, in tuat town, any
morti than in Topeka.
The Metropolitan police law was en
acted to secure the enforcement of the
prohibitary law in the larger cities of

Topkxa, Kan., Jan., 18. The ap
pointment of the new police commiss
ion ror wicnua nas aireaay created a
big row in Topeka. Prominent citi
zens ot the windy town decUre that
the members of tbe new board will not
enforce tbe prohibitary laws any more
than did tbe boodlers under Lewelling.

manded tne riant co name tbe mem

stating that be would name no man
that would brng reproach upon to

do so. Jiut it is admitted by every
man from Wichita that be has named
men who will not try to enforce anv
law prohibiting the sale of intoxicants

it is very .probable mat an tbese re

The President Considering About Is
suing 4 Per Cent. Bonds.
EXTRA SESSION EXPECTED.
A Repeal Recommended of the Law Which
Encourages Spying on Homestead
Settlers Gold Reserve Down
Washington, Jan. 80. It is said that
the president has been seriously con
sidering the propriety of issuing 4 per
cent, thirty-year bonds in the event
that congress shall fail to act favor
ably upon his recommendations in his
recent message. It is known that
baakers representing vast capital, both
in this country and In Europe, who
have been In Washington within the
lost forty-eight hours, and in consulta
tion with the president, have given
him to understand that a 4 per cent,
thirty year bond would be easily ne
gotiable by the United States at
3 per cent This is the
Tate which congress undoubtedly
would be willing to pay, but
there is a condition attached to the is
suance of this bond from which tho
democrats in congress would most cer
tainly shrink. But if the democrats
in the two houses shall refuse to
yield to tbe suggestions of their own
party leaders, and to pass the law
which is deemed by him to be essential,
they will be compelled to accept tho
alternative, which may be the issue of
BjOO.OOO.OOO of 4 per cent thirty-year
bonds. It may be of interest to silver
men to know that August Belmont, the
agent of the Rothschilds, has spent
some time in Washington recently,
and had a conference with the presi
dent anticipating an extra session.
Washington, Jan. 30. The policy of
the administration men of trying to
frame a financial bill which will have
the support of the republicans Is re
garded as the first move of the admin
istration In anticipation of an early ex
tra session of congreri They hardly
expect to succeed in fettilig their bill
through even the house, and know cer
tainly that it' can not pass the senate at
this session. If, however, the effort to
get republicans to stand behind the
measure is successful, it will form the
basis of legislation at the extra ses
sion. In the event of the failure of ac
tion at this session it is expected that
the president will not delay in calling
an extra session more than a week or
so. On the assembling of tho Fifty'
fourth congress, if tho party is com'
mltted in advance to action on this
subject, the republicans will have no
difficulty in very promptly passing the
bill through the house. In tbe senate,
however, tbe situation will be uncer
tain. dispenses with land spies.
Washington, Jan. 30. Since 1881
there has been a law which encour
aged spying on those who took up
publio lands. If a man could make a
case against one who had entered land
and get him dispossessed the spy was
recognized as having the first chance
to enter that piece of land. This law
has operated in Oklahoma to inspire
perjury and promote bloodshed. Upon
it there have been based hundreds of
:ases of blackmail. The Dockcry com
mission, after a olose investigation,
became eonvinced that this law was
doing vastly more harm than good. It
was decided to recommend repeal. The
matter was passed on by the publio
lands committee and approved. Yes
terday the house ordered the repeal
provision made a part of the legisla
tive appropriation bill, and it will, of
oourse, go through. This will be good
tews to Oklahoma people especially.
BCLOW F1FTT MILLION.
Washington, Jan. 3a The secretary
of the treasury has directed the asssy
officials at New York to exchange gold
bars for legal tenders at an advance of
one-tenth of 1 per cent instead of one
eighth. This reduction waa made for
the reason that nearly all of the gold
coin now on hand is new, and there
fore has lost nothing by abrasion. The
amount of gold withdrawn from the
New York sub-treasury yesterday was
13,066,000; from Boston $83,000, making
the total $3,149,000, whloh leaves the
gold reserve $48,616,193.
A LABOR BULLETIN BILL.
Wasuinoton, Jan. 30. Chairman
McGann, of the house labor committee,
has introduced a bill advocating the

intervals of not less than two months,
and not more than 100 octavo pages, to
contain current facts as to the condi
tion of labor here and abroad; con
densations of state and foreign labor
reports; facta as to the condition of
employment Ten thousand copies of
each are to be printed and distributed.

London, Jan. 30. A dispatch to the
Exchange TeleMph Co. from Lowe
stoft 40 miles from Ipswich, says that
the North German Lloyd steamship
Elbe, the oldest vessel of that com
pany, was run down off that place and
sunk and that only nineteen persons
out of HO were saved. No further par

AUAIMST OOLD BONOS. , j
The Missouri Sons tor Declares His Views In
an ICinphatlo Manner. 1
Washington, Jan. 30. As soon as thej
senate session opened to-day Mr. Cul
lom presented a dispatch from all the
leading banks of Chicago, urging that'
the president's recommendations bo,
oarried out at the earliest day possible.
Mr. Vest followed with a similar,
dispatch from the St Louis cham
ber of commerce. He then said
that the chamber of commerce of Sti
Louis did not represent tbe feeling
of the people of Missouri or of the(
country on the financial quostion. Hoi
did not belieye the people favored the
retirement ot $500,000,000 of green
backs and treasury notes and the sub
stitution of no currency at alL He
did not believe they favored gold obli
gations running fifty years with in
terest aggregating 875,000,000. It waa
a selfish suggestion that posterity
should be left to pay this bad'
dobt. The obligations of this senate
were as binding toward posterity as to
ward the present generation. It was
as much the duty of the senate? to pro
tect the futuro as to adopt the sug
gestion of the president to look after
the present and let the future look
after itself. "Tbe president," he went
on, "has declared war on silver. He
would make us accessories to this effort
to fix the gold standard upon us."
The senator asked if any man really
believed the supposed emergency could
not be met by treasury payments in
silver.' And yet the impression waa
being conveyed to the public tha tho
ceuntry was on the' brink of ruin. If
the president had the power he would
force the nation to the single gold
"But," said Mr. Vest, raining his
right hand in emphasis, "so far as I
am concerned, I will never vote to is
sue bonds to secure gold and place ua
on a single standard."
Mr. Cullom rose at this point with a
question as to what tha thi.v.ice com
mittee, of which Mr. Vest is a member,
intended doing towards securing som4
definite policy. J
Mr. Vest paused for a moment be
fore replying, and then said: "It
might be more proper to let tnd
chairman of the committee answer
that question. But in his absence I
will say that I do not believe that
there is the slightest possibility of the
finance committee agreeing on any
measure to report to the senate."
The announcement the first that
had openly been made as to the situa
tion In the finance committee was re
ceived with marked attention and evi
dent surprise. '
Mr. Vest closed with the emphatis
declaration that party fealty could
never lead him to aid in fastening tho
gold standard on the country.
