Nsw York, Jan. 28.—The World will
this morning say : With the gold in the
treasury down to 162.000,000, "with
114,000,000 drawn out in one week, with
more then $7,000,000 lent abroad in one
dey, with the government spending
more than it receives, with recent bond
issues resulting in nothing bnt pallia
tion and debt, with foreign capitalists
turning American eecarities into gold
because tbey doubt the future stability
of bodge podge of government and
finance, with Wall etreet in the first
stages of fever, with the specter of pre
mium on gold threatening all standards
of valne, the time has come for strong,
beroio and instant action that wiß end
eace end for all tbe present lack of com
mon sense in the management of
finances of ths country. Statesmen and
financiers ell say tbat a crisis is at band,
and tbey all cry out that something
mast be done.
The Woild presents opinions oi tbe
leading men and bankers of the conn
try as to what that something should
be, as to what the administration and
congress should do at once. To man tbey
assert that a large popular loan, say of
1500,000.000 would be subscribed for in
a few days and that it would give per
manent relief. Congress and Cleveland
tbey tbink should take such a step im
mediately. Here are a few among sev
eral hundred opinions:
Ellas O. Benedict, President Cleve
land's intimate friend, eaid: "There is
not time to bring about sufficient una
nimity upon any wise plan of establish
ing onr currency upon a firm foundation
daring what remains of this congress.
It was foreseen long ago that legal ten
der money instead of aoting as a circu
lating medium would become a circu
lating pump on the gold deposits ia the
treasury. So it will continue to be at
every period when, as now, the govern
ment is obliged to provide gold to adjust
the balances of trade instead ol leaving
that dnty where it belongs—to banking
interests of the country. A step in the
right direction would be the appoint
ment of a commission whioh should
comprise members from the senate,
honse and from among the banking
fraternity. Such commission would
undoubtedly formulate in tbe near
future a perfectly feasible and safe plan
for sztrioating us from monetary em
barrassment. Tbe difficulty lies in the
want of wisdom in congress."
"I thoroughly approve of a popular
loan," said Cbaunoey M. Depew. "In
the present state of affairs—with the
Democrats in power and the Republicans
coming into power—the situation can
not be remedied except by some tenta
tive measure. Tbe first thing necessary
is to restore credit and confidence by a
popular loan whiob will keep the treas
ury in condition to mset ita obligationa.
Then, when the financial world under
stands tbat tbs people of the United
States are determined to meet tbeir
obligations, and in gold, there will at
once be a restoration of credit and con
Senator Hill said: "Tbequestion that
now confronts na ia not one of partisan
abip, but of patriotiem. We will see
within a few daya whether our Republi

tbat may be made upon them. I be
lieve legialation ia demanded from the
present congreaa providing for gradual
extinguishment, and tbis can be sup
plied tbrough a popular loan. It is dif
ficult to discover why tbe trne friends of
free bimetallic coinage in congress or
elsewhere ebonld object to the elimina
tion of thia greenback paper currency,
which, it ia now generally conceded,
sbonld be cancelled."
Che Assassin lool.ir Revived In New
New Orleans, Jsn. 27.—The Italian
mafia has again begnn operating in tbia
city. The murder of Tony Chiseai of
Chicago, in tbe Italian quarter of tbe
city, Wednesday morning, was followed
yeaterday by a letter from the
mafia to one of the wealthiest
Italians in the city demanding
|2000 on pain of aaaaaioation. Ghi
eesi waa murdered to wipe out a debt
which be bad against two membera of
the aasociation. One of them bad just
ssrved a term in tha penitentiary. Ihe
murderers fled to Thibodeaux, about 70
milsß from the city, and bave ao far
eluded capture.
Tbe latter demanding money was ad
dressed to A. Montelone, a large shoe
manufacturer and one of the wealthiest
Italians in the city. The etter de
manded tbat he go to Dinaldsonville,
in the same section of tbe etate aa Thib
odeaux, aud place »2000 behind a certain
tree to tbe wooda which would be indi
cated. Tbe letter threatened assassina
tion in case the police were notified.
Montelone waa very much frlghteued,
but finally decided to pl.eae the matter in
the handa of the police and appeal for
protection. , ,T. .

Nsw York, Jan. 27.—A diaaer to be
given tomorrow night in Albany by
Govern >o Morton promises to be one of
tbe great political-events of tbe year.
Around the board will be gathered some
of tbe most prominent Republican lead
era of tbe state. Ostensibly the dinner
is given Co the chief state officials, but
in addition to these there wilt be tbe
"big fon*"—ex-Senator Piatt. Cbanncey
Depew und ex-Senators Warner Miller
and Frank Hiaoock. Mayor Strong,
Speaker Fifth and a number of othera
will alao be present. It is being talked
among Betpnblicana that ilia ex
aotly the kind of a dinner
tbat tbe shrewd, hospitable and
ambitious old gentleman would
bave made out if he had atarted
in a campaign of getting aolid with hia
psnty iv (he atate before the general
setting up of delegatea for the Republi
can national convention of 1896. Re
publicans are aaying that Morton has a
presidential bee in hia bonnet. Piatt's
great struggle at thia time is for control
of the nation's delegates from this atate
in 1596. It waa Piatt who made Mor
ton's nomination and eleotion ac gov
ernor possible. Tbat Piatt would be
equally anxious to make bim president

himself, by a few well-timed social at
tentions, can smooth down the milled
feathers at the opposition it would be
good politics.

History of tbe Old Frenchman Mine K«

iost Frenchman mine and the reports
of valuable orea in the old workings.
The camp equipment, tente, toole, etc.,
are weather-beaten and decayed. Tbe
newa baa created intenae interaat among
the old reaidenta here, who remember
the disappearance of the Frenchmen 30
yeare ago.

with a Ynma merchant $5,000 in bnliion
and never showed np afterward. Their
diaappearance ia wrapped In myatery

bave hunted for tbe mine now found.
It is located in the mountains 25 miles
north, slightly wsatsrly of Aztec, Yuma
Old reaidenta regard tbe strike as an
important one, as it verifies reports con
cerning lost mines that have been con
sidered mythical. The news has re
vived interest in the loat Dutchman
mine, supposed to be in Superatition
mountains, and the Adams diggings
come in for a share. Much money and
many lives were lost searching for them.
An Indian, either a Cocopab or a Yuma,
guided the Kirklanda to tha loat mine.

LaPorte, Ind., Jan. 27.—Mrs. Geo
deke. formerly Misa Georgia Cleia,
known aa "Indiana'a Queen of Song,"
has just been released from prison at
Bernais, Franoe, where she bas been
confined on charge of arson. Miss Oleia
was a student in tbe New York Con
servatory of music wben she became the
wile of Captain Geodeke, foreman offi
cer. The couple went to Bernaia, where
Geodeke went into buainess and pros
pered. His factory burned down one
day daring tbeir absence and tbey were
arrested on a charge of arson.
An appeal was sent to Mrs. Geodeke's
iriends in Indiana, and ou their repre

cials united in an effort to secure her
release, and money was raised for her
defense. A cablegram received by Mrs.
Geodeke's brother in South Bend brings
news of her acquittal.
It is now announced that Mrs. Geo

Trouble Over the Papal Decree In Wis
Special to The Herald.
Milwaukee, Wia., Jan. 27.—Arch
bishop Katzer evidently feels tbat hia
letter on the sscret society question is
going to arouse a great deal of opposi
tion among tbe Catholic membera oi
secret societies in tbis city. He was at
eervice at St. John's cathedral today
and deemed it necessary to say a few
words, exhorting all Catholics to obey
tbe mandate. He said he felt certain
that all Catholics who were membera of
these societies would leave them at
! once.
Catholics here freely commented on
this, and said it showed he was aware
the edict was going to bs resisted.
There ia one lodge ol Knigbts of Pythias
here which ia made up almoat entirely
of Catholios, and many members are
outspoken in opposition to tbe papal de
cision and claim they will never obey it,
but will leave tba church.

Brooklyn, N. V., Jan. 27.—Were it
not for tbe scarcity of cars today one
would not have known tbat one of tbe

stationed, but there waa no violence
there and the bantering that the troops
received was of a good-natured kind.

not skilfully operated, and throughout
tbe day there were many collisions and
tbere was much coming together, but
there was no accident of a serious na
The number of cars opnpated today
was slightly over the number running
yesterday. Some were without some of
tbeir windows and others were running
with dissipated looking motor boxes and
badly twisted dash-boards, but most oi
them were carrying passengers without
molestation. Tbe companies did not
venture to open any new lines, nor did
tbey seek to run tbeir cross-town line
of cars through tbe Erie basin district
today. Many of tbe inhabitants of that
locality are of a turbnlent character,
and would, the police aay, do mischief,
if only for tbe Bake of making trouble.
The railroad companies have now be
come able to operate their lines after
dusk and will, it no aerioua disturbances
are made in the future, soon be running
them all night, as they did bsfore the
strike began.
The quietneaa of the strike has been
brought about by the leadera of the
strike, who have pointed out to tbe men
the folly of a riotous courße. They ex
plained that tbe state could furnish two
military men for each oar if they were
needed, and that mob rule would Boon be
overtbrown by bullets and bayonets.
The men beard and understood tbe ro
quaata of the leaders aad will carry them
out. Starvation already confronts many
of tbe families of tbe strikers.
The men were not well equipped
financially when they deoided to stop
work, and the bulk of their funds baa
been used for the transportation of nun
union men to the estiva from which
they came to replace the striker*. This
alone has cost the strikers many thou
sands of dollars. Storekeepers bave
been very considerate, but now that
they see the strikers are uhiuk «in"»™
by men from other cities, they are loth
to give credit, and the wives and chil
dren of the mis out of work are going
hungry. Landlords, too, do not enter
into tbe merits of the situation between
the strikers and the companies, and
nromises to pay when the strike is ended
do not out much figure with them. The
demand for food and for rent, however,
crippled the resources of tbe strikers,
and many of tbem are in sore straits.

Tbe Hawaiian Hatter to Be Res

May Interfere With the Pro
gramme to the Houae.
Washington. Jan. 27. —The week in
the senate will open with tbe renewal ol
tbe discussion of the Hawaiian question
- which promises to become the subject
of several very animated speeches be
fore it shall be definitely disposed of.
The adoptfon of the Vest amendment
to the Allen resolution, instead of dis
couraging the antagonists of the admin
istration, bad apparently tbe effect of
spurring them to even more strenuous
and more pronounoed opposition. They
express themselveß as hopeful of revers
ing the verdict of Saturday when the
next vote shall be reached which shall
be on the final adoption of tbe substi
tute. Senator feller will inaugurate
tbe discussion for the weok with a con
tinuance of hia apeeoh begun yesterday.
The Hawaiian queation will be confined
to tbe first hours of ths daily sessions
and will, at the expiration of its time,
give way to other subjects.
Tbe bankruptcy bill bas been given
the position of unfinished business and
will occupy attention for tbe greater part
of tbe week. Senator George will in
augurate the debate with a speeoh on
Monday. He expects tbe measure to
encounter very pronounoed opposition
and in this will not be disappointed, as
a majority of tbe eastern and northern
senators will be found to be against the
bill. When tbe bill is disposed of In
whatever way, the senate will probably
proceed to consider the pooling bill.
If the threatened conflict between this
and tbe territorial admission bills ehonld
occur a majority of the Republican sen
ators would support a faction favorable
to taking np the pooling bill and would
probably turn the tables in Its favor.
There are no appropriation bills now be
fore tbe senate but three of thoae re
maining unaoted open, viz: The Dis
trict of Oolumbla, ths diplomatic and
the postoffice bills will be reported dur
ing the week, and tt Is Ssnater Cock
rell's purpose to call tbem up imme
diately with the view to getting them
out of the way as soon aa possible.
Thia he will do to the displacement of
either the Hawaiian resolution or bank
ruptcy bill.
Th» programme in tbe house will be
snbject to revision in case President
Cleveland sends a special message to
congress calling for legislation to pro
tect tbe gold reserve. Speaker Crisp,
wbo has been at Asheville, N. 0,, for
tbe benefit of hie health, ia expected to

will be made to comply with hia wiabea.

Representative MoMillin ol Tennessee
says that il a larga percentage of tbe
revenue of tbe government is derived
from tbis plan any attempts to repeal it
before tbe expiration of the five-year
limit fixed in tbe Wilaon bill will be
exceedingly unpopular; that the greater
the revenue derived from it the greater
will tbe probability of ita ra-enactmant
at tbe end of ita term. When
the proposition to tax incomes
wai before congress, the profit
to be derived from it was esti
mated at from f16,000.000 to $18,000,000.
Later the estimate of tbe committee
was raised to $30,000,000. Later Mr.
Hall of Missouri, wbo hai given more
attention to the history of tha income
tax than any other man in tbe houae,
did not place tbe total below $50,001),

the internal revenue bureau it appeara
that Mr. Hall waa more nearly correct
than the other forecaateri, He now
aayi tbat tbe Income tax may not yield
more than $50,000,000, and it is known
that the treaeury otficlali do not plaoe

ing made by 6 of the 63 diitriita givea
ground for the eatimate that about 30,

Tha Pope's Address to tho American
Rome, Jan, 27.—The papal encyclical
address to the Amerioan Episcopate was
mads public here today. Ie tbe docu
ment the pope recalls the fact that be
associated himself with the celebration
of ths fourth centenary of tbe discov
ery of America, the evangelization of
which country was the first care of
Columbus, which evangelization was
realized by the Franciscan and Domini
can monks and the Jesuit fathers.
After pointing out that tbe first
Catholic bishop in Amerloa was a great
friend of George Washington, father of
bis country, the pope ahowe how the
Episcopal councils, aided by the breadth
of viewa and the equity of Ameri

to contribute still more to tbis

When the Ohicora went out of St. Jo
seph on her laat trip tbere was a dog
aboard. Yesterday the dog waa brongbt
into the city alive. Tuesday nigbt the
dog was heard whining at the door of a
