NO LONGER FEAR THE NEGRO. The Gold Ring of Washington and Wall Street Getting in Their Work in the Southern States. Washington Corrsipondont, St. Louis Bopub- no. Secretary Carlisle, as the head of the administration is now earf ullv prepar ing speech which he will deliver at the Mempbsis convention in a few weeks. In this speech Mr. Carlisle voice the policy of the president and and the administration. Air. Carlisle will speak wfth authority. He will lay before the people the result of bis judgment, bis experience and his fruit ful imormation. lie win reason the case with the people and submit facts and figures that only one whose ex perience during the past two Tears could command. It is expected that this speech will be one of the most comprehensive of Secretary Carlisle's puunc nie, ana this is saying a great deal. Subsequently, Mr. Carlisle may make a tew speeches in Kentucky, where the silver agitation is in full blast. Peo ple in authority here are paving a good deal of attention to the Memphis convention . It is believed that it will be a gathering of far-reaching impor tance. The understanding here is that the business men of the South the bankers, merchants, manufastur ers. planters who are opposed to the theories or extreme silver men, are to meet in Memphis to serve notice on the democratic politicians of the South that if they embrace the theories of the radical silver men, the business element of the South will not acqui esce, but, on the contrary, secede from the democratic party. For years the southern democracy voiced the opinions of the courthouses. Now the business men insist that the southern democracy, must to a certain extent, reflect the opinions of the counting houses. The conservative south seems inclined to view with alarm the tendency towards an alli ance betwen the southern democracy and the radical elements of the west. The Memphis convention accord ing to reports received here, will have representatives at all the states of the louth, and these representatives, ac cording to the understanding here, will serve notice on the lemocnitic leaders of he south that if an alliance with the extreme silver men is contem plated, there will be a "parting of the ways" as Senator West would say, or rupture in the ties that have bound the conservative South so long to the democratic party. There Is no doubt that the south is beeinninc to ftel more independent of the democratic party, and less fearful of the republican. The repeal of all the Federal election laws was re garded in many southern states as a new declaration of independence. At eny rate, southern business men no longer have that reverence lor tne democratic party which was notice able for the past quarter of a century., They no lonuer looK upon tne .Nation al democratic party as a the guardian and protector of southern rights and interests. The business men of the south are about convinced that the northern republicans are about tired of the negro, and very much inclined to leave him shift for himself. The business men of the south look upon New York as an immense clearing house for the country, and the views and opinions of Aew York business men dominate to an enormous extent the commercial classes of the south. It is argued, too, that when the south needed friends in congi ess, or In the convention New ork was always re liable ally, whilst the west was fre quently stampeded by republican bloody-shirt orators or Grand Army bnele notes. This is the way that southern men explain the present situation and pre seut tendiencies. Men whom your correspondHnt has known for years as enthusiastic, aggressive democrats are now weakening in the faith, and threatening absolute secession, if the free coinage sentiment prevails in the democratic party. Men from nearly every state in the south are in Washington daily. These are mostly business men who have al ways heretofore taken an active inter est in wliticB. have contributed to democratic campaign funds and always loyally aided in party organization They stop here on their way to and from New York and they talk free'y. Yesterday and today vour rorrespon dent had opportunity in converse with democratic buslnees men from Louis ana, Georgia. Alabama, Tennessee and Texas. These men say that they have no doubt that reports from the west of the tidal wave for silver are true, but that It is equally certain that sentiment in the south in favor of sound mone is making equally rapid progress. These men admitted that t hfv wpra for the free coinage of silver up to a year or a yeer and half ago.i Uiatthey snd alwyi voted la the con gressional conventions for the free coinage apd instructed their represen tative in eongressto support free coin age. But they claim to have seen a new light; to be convinced of the error of their ways, and that they Intend to tread other paths in future. They are not for the gold Btaudard and claim to to be earnest bimetalists. They even insist that they are in favor of free coinage of silver still, but that free coinage must be brought about by in ternational agreement, as otherwise new panics would ensue and returning prosperity1 would be checked or de- troyed. , MOnTGAtfE BEDEMrtlOX LAW. An Important lleelalou Affecting It Handed Down b- th It-insae vuDrit rnr. TorKKl, Kan., May 1. The supreme court yesterday handed down decisions in a uurabsr of Important coses, among them the case of J. It. Watkins against M. II. Ulenm, involving the constitu tionality of the mortgage redemption law. The decision of the district court of Harper county, from which an appeal was taken, was re yere1, The eonrt holds that the law concerning the sale and re demption of real estate passed by the legislature of 1893 does not apply to mortgage contract existing at or be fore its passage, and if the legislature intended the act to apply to such con tracts, It violated an Important provi sion of the constitution of the United States. Another case decided is of interest to old soldiers.' It U to the effect that when a veteran, who is very poor, dies, his family may bury him and the county shall stand the expense up to $50. The custom is for the county to bury auch unfortunates by contract let to the lowest bidder, the same as In cases of ordinary paupers. The supreme court says that the law in tends that old soldiers shall have a decent burial, and that the county shall pay a moderate expense. HABKET BULLETINS.

The Financial Crisis in San Francisco Decidedly Serious. AN OUTLAW'S SKIN TANNED. Pocketbooki Made Oat of the Cuticle of a Motorlons Desperado Prices on Straw Hats and Wall Paper to Advaace. Sax Fbaxcisco, May 1. The esti mate of th auditor of the. city and eounty of Ban FranoUco that there would be a deficit in the treasury at the end of the fiscal year July 1 of 5350, 000, and the fact that the payment of the April bills of eon tractors for sap plies will exhaust the funds apportioned for that purpose has led to a crisis which is now at the acute stage. This is the last day of grace that the contractors who furnish supplies to the city au thorities have allowed for payment of their claims. They now threaten to shut off supplies and thus virtually force the city o flic la U into acquiescence by starving their charges in.tht ail, almshouse and hospitals. Reports from the several institutions show that none of them are tn a posi tion to exist beyond a few days The county Jail, especially, Is in a bad plight. Acting Chief Dougherty said that unless supplies were furnished to day he would be compelled to disband the fire department, as both feed and coal were exhausted. An Outlaw's Skla Tanned.

The cutiele of Tom Ulanck, the desperado who held up the jailer at Seattle with a wooden gun recently and was killed by a posse after a desperate fight, has been tanned and will be mado into pooketbooks. The people of Sumner say it is an attempt to immortalize a "red-handed murderer." They accuse a physician of that place of having charge of the tanning of the human skin. Five pocketbooks have been made, so far as known. Straw Hats Will BUe. Chicago, May t Prices on straw hats and wall paper are slated for a pronounced rise, according to a local paper.
