THE GOVERNMENT LOAN
Bankers Ready Ta Cive Gold for Bonds, President Cleveland Assured That the New Issue Will Be Taken Care Of—He Will Not Wait for Con gress To Act—Fifty Millions at Least Will Be Issued. Washington, Nov. 13. —In spite of de nials from the treasury department. It may be assumed as true that a bond Issue is contemplated to take place almost immediately. It Is understood that Mr. Carlisle was informed of Mr. Cleveland's desires In the matter for the first time Saturday night, and that now it is a settled thing that the issue is to be made without awaiting au thorization from congress. Mr. Cleve land is probably satisfied that should he await for authority from congress he would wait to no purpose, and he would rather act in the case during their absence than when a resolution of condemnation might be passed simul taneously with the issue. The issue of bonds to make up the deficit in the gold reserve in the treas ury has been discounted, and Wall street, which means the financial cen ter of the country, is awaiting the an nouncement which is expected at any time. What the amount of the issue will be is problematical and will not be known until the formal announcement nnd call for subscriptions are made known officially, but a well known bank president, who Is in the confi dence of the administration, said that it would be at least $50,000,000. Whether it would be in excess of that amount he would not say. New York, Nov. 13.—Five presidents of national banks who are regarded as the leaders of the bank presidents in New York city, met at the otflce of Henry W. Cannon, president of the Chase National bank, late yesterday. They were Mr. Cannon, Presidents Nash of the Corn Exchange National, Tappen of the Gallatin National. Sim mons of the Fourth National, and Wil liams of the Chemical National bank. These gentlemen had attended a meet ing of the building committee of the Clearing House association, and gath ered in the offices of the Chase Nation al bank to discuss the impending gov ernment loan. The consensus of opin ion was that the bankers ol* New York would give up large amounts of gold for the purchase of the new issue of government bonds. It is expected that investors will subscribe largely for the new bonds and the banks will furnish to depositors freely the gold to take the bonds. This decision is of import ance, as the banks represented at this informal conference, with the Union Trust and United States and Central Trust companies, hold the bulk of the gold in New York. Presidents King, Stewart and Olcott, of the trust com panies mentioned, have already ex tended to the administration their as surances that the new issue will be taken care of. When the February is sue was made depositors had difficulty in obtaining gold from banks, and many only secured legal tenders, which were presented at the sub-treasury to obtain the gold. The government thus failed to secure ever $38,000,000 gold for the $58,000,000 netted by the sale of $50,- 000,000 bonds. The decision of the bankers to give up their gold freely will consequently net a larger amount ot gold to the government as the result of the forth coming $50,000,000 issue, estimated at over $50,000,000. It is understood in New York that the new issue will be announced with in forty-eight hours, if the circulars and subscriptions blanks can be pre pared in that time. THE COOK GANG PLUNDERING. Holding Up Farmers and Stealing Horses. Muskogee, I. T., Nov. 18.—The Cook gang held up farmers and stole horses and saddles six miles from here early in the morning. They are headed to ward Fort Gibson and a posse started out last night. Seven of the gang went to the farmhouse of James Dinkens, near Perry and demanded food, which was refused. The outlaws then bound Dirtkens, his wife and daughter and plundered the house. They were not released until neighbors arrived in the evening. Elmer Lucas, a member of the gang under arrest at Fort Smith, Ark., made a full confession Saturday of his connections with Bill Cook. Lulu Cook, who was arrested last week at Tahlequah is at liberty here on bond. She has written a long statement to the public, charging that marshals harassed her brothers Bill and Jim until they were forced into outlawry. Exorbitant Itatcs. Chicago, Nov. 13. —The new freight rate for eastbound shipments of grain went into effect yesterday. All ship ments of grain under this rule will cost twenty-five cents a hundred pounds. This rat® is regarded by ship pers us exorbitant and there is a feel ing that it will not be enforced. East bound grain shipments have not been heavy of late and this rate they say would almost entirely stop business. Long Distance Horse Race. Paris, Nov. 13. —The famous mares, Merveilleuse, Pompone and Gazelle, completed yesterday a race from Paris to Havre and back. The distance of 264 miles was covered by Pompone, who won. In 53 hours and 45 minutes. Despite the rains and heavy roads Pompone was comparatively fresh when she finished. Chicago Policemen Suspended. Chicago, Nov. 13.—The superintendent of police last night suspended seven police board on the charge of neglect of duty on election day. They are ac cused specifically of allowing citizens to be assaulted and driven from the polls in various parts of the city. Xnfl Works Resume. Martins Ferry, 0., Nov. 13.—The Laughlin Nail works which closed over two months ago, has been placed in full operation. About 600 men and boys are employed. Lack of orders and hard times were the cause assigned for shutting down. DEBS SUSTAINED. Labor Commission Condemns the Railroad Managers' A.ssocia'ion Cincinnati, Nov. 13.—The United States government report on the great railway strike In connection with the Pullman trouble has been made pub lic. The troubles of the Illinois Cen tral and the Chicago. Rock Island and Pacific companies were the ones in vestigated. According to the testimony the railroads lost in property destroy j ed, hire of United deputy mar ! shals and other incidental expenses at least $685,308. The loss of earnings of these roads is estimated at $4,672,91 G. Some 3,100 employes at Pullman lost in wages as estimated at least $350,000. About 100,000 employes upon the twen ty-four roads centering at Chicago all of which were more or less Involved in the strike, lost in wages as estimated ' at least $1,389,143. Many of these em -1 ployes are still adrift and losing wages. The commission says of the Pull man Palace Car company: I For the year ending July 1, 1893, the I dividends were $2,520,000 and the wages $7,223,719.51. For the year ending July j 1, 1894, the dividends were $2,780,000 and I the wages $2,471,701.89. As the result of the Pullman system and its growth when the depression of 1893 came morally calling for mutual concessions as to wages, rents, etc., we find on the one side a very wealthy and unyielding corporation, and upon the other a multitude of employes of com paratively excellent character and skill but without local attachments or any interested responsibility in the town, its business, tenements or surround ings. The conditions created at Pullman enabled the management at all times to assert with great vigor its assumed right to fix wages and absolutely and to repress the sort of independence \Wiieh leads to labor organizations and their attempts at mediation, arbitra tion, strikes, etc. In speaking of the general managers' association of railway companies the i commission says: The association is an illustration of the persistent and shrewdly devised plans of corporations to over-reach | their limitations and to usurp indirect ly powers and rights not contemplated in their charters and not obtainable from the people or their legislatures. It further says that the legalizing of j this "pooling" would result in an ag gregation of power and capital danger ous to the people and their liberties as j well as to employes and their rights. The question would then certainly arise as to which should control, the govern ; ment or the railroads, and the end i would Inevitably be government owner ship. Unless ready for that result and all that it implies the government must restrain corporations within the law and prevent them ffom forming unlaw ful and dangerous combinations. At j least, so long /is railroads are thus per ; rnitted to combine to fix wages and for J their Joint protection, it would be rank injustice to deny the right of all labor upon all railroads to unite for similar purposes. THE SERVICES AT MOSCOW. Alexander lll.'s Remains Removed St. Petersburg. i Moscow, Nov. 13.—Tho members of I the court, noblemen, conspicuous citl j zens, delegates and crowds of all other I classes assembled at the Kremlin at to attend the ceremony called sortie. The chief subject of Interest was the address of Czar Nicholas to his sub jects. Reporters were excluded. The czar, leading his mother, passed along the line of noblemen and gran | dees to the dais, from which he spoke, j It is said that he expressed in firm i tones the grief he felt in revisiting J Moscow under such sad conditions. His father had entrusted to him, he said, a message of thanks to the peo , pie of Mosoow for their loyalty to liim. For himself, It would be his aim to walk in his father's steps. The czar , then conducted his mother to the Ca thedral of the Archangel Michael, | where the Imperial and royal princes | had assembled for service. After the prayers the signal of three guns an ; nounced the time of the departure for I the railway station. The procession : left the cathedral in a dull rain. The , thick layer of sand on the new laid j pavement had be®n churned into mud. The silence was broken with cheers when the czar passed. During the procession a runaway horse dashed among the image-bearers, seriously injuring one of them. Gen. Booth in Cleveland. Cleveland, Nov. 13.—General Booth, of the Salvation army, was warmly received by local Salvationists and other Christian workers on his arrivul In the city. After an informal recep tion at the depot he was driven to the ' home of Judge and Mrs. Conway W. ; Noble, whose guest he will be until | to-morrow. The local ministers gave the general a reception yesterday after- I noon. NEW YORK MARKETS. COUNTRY PRODUCE—BUTTER— !

Placing Bottles unl Playthings on the OravH of Dead Friends. A curious custom is still observed in an old negro burying* ground in Wash ington—that of placing upon the graves of departed friends and relatives the articles that were most enjoyed or used by them while living, and the bottlc3 containing the residuum of the medi cines that were administered during the last illness. The Mount Zion grave yard. as it is called, lies in the shadow of the beautiful Oak Hill cemetery, on Georgetown Heights. Both are charm ingly situated on rising ground over looking Rock creek at its most pictur esque point. Separated only by a short stretch of land aud a high board fence the "silent cities" present the most IT"""" 1 A CORNER OF MOUNT ZION GRAVEVARD. vivid contrast imaginable. On one side are soft green lawns, flowering shrubs, graveled walks and magnificent monu-, ments; on the other a rank growth of grass and weeds, worm-eaten and dis colored wooden headboards, and in stead of flowers a miscellaneous jumble of tops, ornaments, tools, and so on. Hut Mount Zion has its own peculiar charm and its patrons are unique in the belief that the tilings used by the departed during life are needed by them in the land of shadows. The old, white-haired sexton, in his quaint dia lect. gives many amusing obituaries, and explains the significance of certain articles that litter the mounds. The idea of the negroes in placing them in the cemetery is that they may be with in easy reach of the spirits whom they j confidently believe revisit the scenes of their earthly sufferings. If they find , familiar objects on their graves they confine their manifestations to the cemetery—if not, they haunt the fami lies who have neglected to provide them. One of the most interesting of these souvenirs is that which adorns the grave of "Aunt Chloe Brown," whom the sexton described as a "reg'lar terror." It is a large palm leaf fan. It j seems that "Aunt Clo" "uset to git up in media' an' pray louder 'en anybody else an' den go home an' cut up lively." ! The chief bone of contention with her was that the rest of the family would insist on eating twice a day. She usually terminated the family repasts when, in her opinion, they had lasted long enough, by routing the feasters j with a broomstick. One day, while j chasing her husband, "who was the I patientest nigger alive," she caught her j foot in her dress and fell, striking her i temple on a sharp stone. When they ! picked her up she was dead. "I put de 1 fan on her grave," said the old sexton finishing his recital, "'cause if eber anyone went to de hot place, she did, certin shore, an' she'll find it refreshin' when she comes back in de night." TEMPLE OF FINANCE. The llamlsomo Building Designed for the Ndv York Clearing House. Work is progressing rapidly on the foundation for the new clearing house which is to be built in New York city. The site of the new building, about t>i feet by 87 feet, is 77 to 82 Cedar street. The structure is to be of white mar ble in Italian renaissance style. Tt will be detached from adjacent buildings, thus preserving its own separate char acter. It is to ho three stories in height. The building will have only one tenant—a bank occupying the whole of the ground floor nnd part of the base ment. The banking offices include B,(XX) feet floor space. On the second story are tho administration offices of the clearing house, consisting of reecp- X NEW YORK'S NEW CLEARING HOUSE, tion olfice, manager's office, assistant manager's olfice and the clerks' rooms. The third story consists chiefly of the great exchange or clearing-room, 00 feet square, with two extensions or wings, making its great length 80 feet. The ceiling is a dome rising 25 feet above the walls. It is paneled in fire proof stuff in renaissance style, and the walls have pilasters of a Corinthian or der supporting tho cornice and dome. Tho large floor is to bo occupied by tho desks of the settling clerks, each one of whom has his own numbered sta tion. Tho manager's gallery, from which the business is directed, isatone end of the room, raised a few feet, and reached by steps. The room is lighted by a great iron and brass skylight, which forms the upper part of the dome. At the rear of the clearing-room is a section of the building divided into three stories. Onp floor contains din ing-rooms for officers and clerks, the next the kitchen and appurtenances and janitor's dining-rooms, and the other the janitor's private rooms. The basement will contain, besides the en gineer's department, the three largo piece j vaults of the clearing house. BREVITIES. Carlyle, 111., Nov. 12.—State Treasurei Rufus N.

London, Nov. 12.—The Daily News correspondent in Constantinople says that it is impossible to obtain correct 1 details of the recent massacre of Ar menians in the Sassoun region, near Moosh. He mentions a report that 3,000 were killed, including women anil j children. The most credible sdory, ho says, ascribes the guilt to Turkish troops. The British ambassador is making all possible inquiries. London, Nov. 12.—The Daily ' News hears from: Odessa "Another and more important manifesto from the czar is j expected after the funeral. I gather i from all sides that the regret for the ' deceased czar is materially qualified 1 by a certain feeling of relief that his iron control has been removed. Any- ! how, the momentary popular mind hovers between hope and fear whether Nicholas 11. will load the press with equal weight or relieve it of its more 1 grievous burdens." Princeton, 111., Nov. 12. —A meetlng of the coal miners of Spring Valley to 1 consider a strike was held in the Opera house. It was called by the Driver & !

The 200 who passed Friday morning though, were intent upon avenging the execution of Sllan Lewis. It is said upon reliable authority that two large bands of Choctaws are in the neighborhood of the Jack Fort mountains and that they are being constantly reinforced. The Choctaw district court will be con vened at Wilburton Tuesday, when the twenty-six prisoners indicted for the same offense for which SMan Lewis j was executed will be placed on trial. Boston, Nov. 12.—Yesterday all that 1 was mortal of poor Mike Kelly was ; gently lowered to the grave by those ! who had been near and dear to him ; throughout life. Not for many a long 1 day has the funeral of one man been so largely attended as that of Kelly. For four hours a steady stream of peo ple filed Slowly into the rooms of the Boston lodge of Elks of Hayward place and did the dead man honor. Peace fully he reposed in a magnificent cas ket, half buried beneath floral decora tions placed there by loving hands. Around the room were wreaths and crosses and costly pieces of floral work contributed by friends. Men, women and children came, looked reverently on the features of the dead man, and silently glided away to make room for others. Something like 8,000 people came and thousands more would have come had there been time. WILL lIOTiCT HASTILY rhina and Japan Consider ing Cleveland's Offer. f'eplies Expected from Both Coun tries To-morrow China Will Probably Consult with England Before Reaching a Conclusion in the Matter. 1 Washington, Nov. 13.—Nothing ofll- j cial had been received at the state de- j partment form either ChJjia or Japan, j Tlie Japanese ministry, it is well 1 known, are considering President Cleveland's proposition but it is a mat ter .of too great import to be settled hastily. The emperor of Japan, whose headquarters are at Hiroshima, will be consulted and these various consul tations require time. It is believed, however, that definite replies will be 1 received from both countries by to morrow. So far as China is concerned, It was not expected that her reply Would he formally given until she had 1 consulted with Great Britain. That ! she is anxious to bring to a close a I war so destructive to her interests is well known, and it is this that has led the Cleveland administration to be lieve that she will accept any honor able terms made by Japan. It is said, however, by those who are in posi tion to reflect the views of the Chinese minister, that China will not dare to determine the matter absolutely until j after Great Britain shall have been heard from. And it is not believed that Great Britain will be willing that the United States alone shall gain the prestige which will naturally belong to this country from bringing the war to a close. Great Britain is more anx- I ious than this country that hostilities should cease, but she wishes to have a voice in effecting this result. China, it 1 is thought, will not for this reason offend Great Britain by rashly accept ing the proposition of the United States until she first learns the temper of the British mind Another stumbling block will be the amount of the in demnity. Japan will doubtless hold out for $100,000,000 while China will re gard not more than half that amount as the proper figure. Aside from the very natural desire of China to reduce j the indemnity as much as possible, it will be a matter of great embarrass ment in her present impoverished con dition to raise so large a sum as that which Japan will exact. It can only be done by increasing her duty on for eign importations which is now about 5 per cent., and which in view of her treaty obligations will not be easy. Great Britain, who is the largest ex porter of manufactured products to China, would be the first to protest against this increase in customs duties, and this is another consideration which will cause China not to §ct preoipl- j tately but to await Great Britain's pleasure. London, Nov. 13.—The Standard's cor- : respondent in Berlin says: "The Chi nese minister has arrived from St. Pe t rsburg for the purpose of informing the German government of the war situation in connection with the pro posed Intervention. He is instructed to declare that China is willing to make certain sacrifices for an honorable peace. In the event of failure, she will continue the war, whatever the result, even if the emperor be compelled to withdraw to the interior of the empire. The Chinese board of foreign affairs has prepared to submit to the powers the whole correspondence between China and Japan concerning Korea." ANTI-PAItNELHI ES M EET. Deprecate Newspaper Discussions of : Party Differences. Dublin, Nov. 18.—The antl-Parnell itos met here with their leader, Justin \ McCarthy, in the chair. They declared that the acceptance of Mr. Gladstone's and Lord Tweedmouth's celebrated checks was Justified, as these contri butions to the Irish cause were made spontaneously. The begging circular, the meeting resolved, was not a party matter as the party was not respon sible for it. The circular.had been sent out, the resolution added, through the blunder of a clerk. The meeting dej •• ateil newspaper - discussions of party differences as calculated to in jure the Irish cause. Before the de bate concerning the checks was closed, a resolution protesting against the ac ceptance of them was proposed and rejected. TLa meeting declared that it was the liberal party's paramount duty to secure the autonomy of .Ire land and to observe faithfully its pledges in this respect. Such observ ance would bo the sole gu rantee of the continuation of the alliance be tween the Irish and liberals. Tlie American Released. Yokohama, Nov. 13—It is reported that John Wilde, an American, alias "Howie," and Cameron, a Scotchman, alias "Browne," who were arrested at Kobe on board the French steamship Sydney, from Marseilles for Yoko hama, charged with conspiring to destroy the Chinese fleet by the use of torpedoes, have been released from custody after taking oaths not to resort to any action tending to assist China during the war. The Chinaman, C. !'. Moore, recently trari-huor for the Chinese legation at Washington, 'who was arrested with Wilde and Cameron, has b en sent to Hiroshima. Nuns Ma- Teach. Pittsburg.
