HENRY CLEWS' PREDICTIONS.
The Well-known Financier Con
tinent That a Return of Pros
perity Is Assured.
Special to the Globe.
NEW YORK, May 26. — Henry
Clews, in his weekly review of the.
financial situation, says:
My readers will bear me witness
that I was the first to sound the death
knell to the bear market on March 5
last, the day following the adjourn
ment of congress, when I proclaimed
that the time had. arrived to buy ev
erything and sell nothing. I then said
there was no stock dealt on the stock
exchange so poor that would not ad
vance conspicuously from that time
forward. I was governed by the fact
that congress had adjourned. I also
took into consideration the fact that
the gold scare was about to culminate,
because the hunt for gold had com
menced to result in increased produc
tion, the world's output of which would
amount for the coming year to prob
ably $200,000,000, with the prospact of
its yearly increase for some time to
come. The effect of the gold discov
eries in South Africa, which have
made such a speculative craze in min
ing shares on the London exchange
and the continental bourses, has been
to revive business in every direction
and cany Europe out of a rut of de
pression which started at the time of
the Baring failure in 1890. This coun
try is bound to benefit under the in
fluence growing out of increased gold
production both here and elsewhere,
REVIVAL OF BUSINESS
interests could not possibly have a
sounder bottom to rest upon than
that of the yellow metal. About $45,
--000,000 of gold will be taken out of
the African mines probably this year.
The properties connected therewith
are now selling on the London market
on a basis of $600,000,000. The pro
duction of gold this year in this coun
try is steadily on the increase,, espe
cially in Colorado, Montana and Ida
ho, and will soon be the basis of a
gold inflation craze in this country
not unlike what is now being experi
enced in London and elsewhere. It
is important to consider that the
world's output of gold hereafter,
amounting to about $200,000,000 (and
likely to increase year after year),
will mostly all of it perform the func
tions of money, and no part df it is
likely to go into the war chests of the
European nations, as heretofore, as
they hav<". now all accumulated their
full emergency supply. Another im
portant feature to take into considera
tion is that the ....'./
SUPPLY OF MONEY
now in this country amounts to $24
per capita as against the time of the
panic of 1873, when it was $17 per cap
ita, and going still further back to
the panic of 1857, when it was only
$15 per capita. When prosperity again
reigns supreme in this country, which
will soon probably be the case, judg
ing from present appearances, there
will be a sufficient return of confidence
to make the circulation of this $24 per
capita so rapid as to possibly make
our present volume. of circulating me
dium excessive. When this ' occurs,
which will be very soon in my opinion,
it will do more than anything else to
kill the present Western and Southern
silver craze. This $24 per capita in
money will be added to each year be
yond doubt by at least $50,000,000 of this
country's product of gold. This will
soon satisfy even those who are now
calling for more silver money, .that
the country's supply of money will be
ample to go round without diluting
our money by opening the mints to
free silver coinage, or by any other
very questionable means of Increasing
this country's supply of money. Gold
is the country's standard and must so
continue, to enable it to stand abreast
with other first-class nations. "United
we stand, divided we fall." To admit
of our maintaining our present proud
supremacy amongst the nations of the
world, the best metal is none too good
for this country as the standard basis
for money, and that is
GOLD AND ONLY GOLD.
Gold is one of our products, and we
of all nations should utilize it for all
it is worth and recognize it as supreme.
No country can afford to do so better
Railroads in this country like the
New York Central, whose credit ad
mits of their selling their treasury
securities in Europe, as the New York
Central has done, will be likely to do
so one after the other. This money
will go into extensions, improvements
and repairs; arid nothing will add to
the general business activity of the
country more than such expenditures.
There is enough of this kind of rail
road disbursement needed to make
good times for a long time to come.
It was nearly three years since the
New York Central directors voted to
sell the treasury shares of the com
pany at 100. A part was disposed of,
but there has been no time since until
now when the 45,000 shares left on hand
could be sold in this country or in Eu
rope at par value. - This negotiation,
which is reported to have been made
at 102*£ in London, must be put in
evidence as showing the return of con
fidence abroad in American securities
after an absence of it for three years.
The most remarkable feature in con
nection with this sale of stock was
the immediate ! advance of New York
Central shares 4 per cent in the mar
ket. If the situation had . warranted
a bear attack, one would certainly have
followed the announcement of this ne
gotiation, and in that case, it would
probably have been a fall of 4 per cent.
instead^ of an advance. J If the 1 bears'
had felt sure of their position, they
wouldn't have wanted a stronger point,
to sell on than the fact that New York

Gathering for the G. O. P. Conven
tion—McKinley Being Boomed.
ZANESVILLE, 0., May 26.— the
state Republican convention which
meets here Tuesday and Wednesday
the candidates and the workers are
here today. Ex-Secretary Charles F.
Foster was among the hustlers today.
Senator Sherman will be here tomor
row. There are a dozen candidates for
governor, the favorites being Gen. Asa
A. Bushnell, Judge Nash and James
H. Hoyt. The delegations from Cin
cinnati had Bushnell for governor,
the one from Cleveland had Hoyt for
governor. All were alike in hoisting
McKinley's banner for president and
Foraker' s for senator. The Toledo
delegation had their cars decorated
with the inscription "McKinley for
president; Foraker for senator and
Guy Major for governor."
Today factional feeling was intensi
fied among the advance guard here by
hearing that McKinley's name had
been torn' from the banners on the
special cars at Toledo, on the order
of Mayor Guy Major. The friends of
Mayor here say that Gov, McKinley's
friends got up a delegation to contest
the seats of the Major delegation and
that McKinley's name was torn down
because of that action. They announce
that they will begin the fight at this
convention against McKinley for presi
dent by opposing a resolution indorsing
the governor for president and start-,
ing a movement to get anti-McKinley,
It is not probable that there will be
material opposition to the resolution
indorsing McKinley at this convention
for president, but it is already evident
that factional feeling will be strongly
developed in the convention. The For
aker men are concentrating on Gen.
Bushnell for governor and the'McKin
ley men are on Judge Nash. If there
should be any formidable opposition
to the indorsement of Foraker for
senator the old factional feeling
in the party in this state would break
loose in all its fury. The leaders in
both factions are exercising all pos
sible discipline to prevent any out
break, but it is not improbable that
this contest will get beyond their con
trol. :;;*A :■';"•"!/"-. AU:y:
TOLEDO, 0., May 2G.— The Commer
cial says: There is no truth what
ever in the published statement that
Gov. McKinley had suggested the con
testing delegation from Toledo. Nei

the state central committee, know
anything of it until the petition signed
by over 100 of the leading business

HOT FROIVI'THE WIRE.
Telegraph News Put Into Type
LOUISVILLLE, Ky., May 26.— An
unique and successful experiment, was
made here this morning. when the As
sociated Press telegraph news was tak
en directly from the wire by a type
setting machine operator. The Intro
duction of the typewriter Into the tele
graph business has been a means of
greatly facilitating the transmission
of the press service of the Associated
Press, and several newspaper men of
this city connected with the Evening
Post and the Associated Press have
been experimenting of late with a
view to doing away with the type
writer and substituting for it the lino
type machine, thus setting the news
for the paper directly from the wire.
This morning one of the Associated
Press loops was run into the Evening
Post composing room and B. G. Boyle,
managing editor of the Post, and Rich
ard Cogan, chief operator of the Asso
ciated Press, who are both telegraph
and linotype operators, succeded in
receiving dispatches of the Associated
Press and putting them in type direct
from the wire. ' ' ._
The experiment proves that the tele
graph can be worked successfully with

NASHVILLE, Term., May 26.—:
News has reached this city of a fright- J
ful tragedy which occurred near
Chestnut Mount on Friday last, as a
result of which two young daughters
of Sam McKinney are dead, while
his baby is slightly wounded. .'.
Mr. McKinney had been out on his
farm with a Winchester rifle, and,
approaching the house, handed the
gun to his twenty-three-year-old son
Henry, requesting him to take it
into the house. Approaching the front
door, Henry decided to unload the ■
gun, and, thinking he had removed
all the loads, he let the hammer fall,
only to hear a report and feel the gun
recoil. Through the door the bullet
sped, and . through the bodies of the
two sisters, who were close together
just inside the door. The elder was
eight years old, the. other a few years
younger. Both were instantly killed,
while a nine-months old infant - was

CENTRAL AMERICAN UNION./ .
Important Treaties Between Ni
caragua and Honduras. ' ''.-.
WASHINGTON, May " 26. — New
treaties of far-reaching importance
'have recently been made between
Nicaragua and Honduras, and official
copies have just been received in
Washington' The treaties have". been
under negotiation for some time, and
were finally put into effect by proc
lamation on the loth of last month. ".
They are the first practical steps
toward the formation of a Central
American nation 'out of the several
small republics — Nicaragua, Hon
duras, Guatemala, Salvador and
Costa Rica. The first treaty forms -a
defensive alliance in case of foreign
war, an offensive alliance 'against
common enemies. It obliterates com
mercial frontiers, so that -. foreign [
goods once admitted to one country'
are free to enter the other. An ? ex
press provision is made against the
possibility of war between the coun
tries by an article requiring differ
ence between them to he adjusted by
arbitration by some -government .on
the American continent. Article . 53 ,
is the one looking to the union in '■
A SINGLE NATION, .
and is as follows: "The high contract
ing parties solemnly declare that they ,
cannot and will not consider as for- i
eign the other Central American
countries, and that they will labor'
constantly to maintain the family'
bonds and the greatest cordiality in
'their relations, making a common
■cause with them in case of war or dif
ficulties with foreign countries, ana ,
mediating in their international ' re
lations. To this end the present treaty
will he submitted to their considera
tion, inviting them to subscribe to it
as a common contract American treaty
until the arrival of the day when they
shall be incorporated in a single na
tion.". .":.' --" ■...'/"■ '" " :
The detailed features of the treaty
show the closeness of the alliance now
formed between Nicaragua and Hon
duras. Article 1 hinds the govern
ment to "unify their foreign policy,
to act jointly in matters concerning
the. Central America, and to endeavor
to bring about the same uniformity
and : harmony with the other govern
ments of Central America."
"\ ARBITRATION. 1
The article pledging a mutual offen
sive and defensive alliance ,is as . fol
lows: • "Both governments declare that
i there shall exist between them a de
fensive alliance in case of foreign war
and an offensive one against common
enemies." . /"J :■*- :*■'); '. : -:.- : - ! '■■■<'.
Article 4 arranges a plan of arbi
tration affecting all Central American
states. v Succeeding articles agree on
uniform postal, tariff and all other
laws, a uniform diplomatic repre
sentation abroad, etc. In every "way
possible the boundary line is wiped out, j
and the countries form a complete
: political union or alliance. ' '
~ : Article 19 expresses the extent. of this
union as follows: "These contract gov
ernments, desirous of acting -jointly
in everything affecting their Interests,
besides endeavoring to make uniform
their foreign policy and to have a com
mon representative before other na- I
tions, shall endeavor to agree upon-'
a basis upon . which they shall con- *
elude subsequent treaties with' for
eign nations and make concessions to 5
steamship, railroad and other com- "
panics." . */,---; •:,•/.
..... AGAINST WAR. ' -
Article 50, against war or reprisal;
is as follows: "Should any of the ar
ticles of this treaty be violated or in- '
fringed in any^ way, or should . any
other cause of disagreement . between
the two republics arise, it expressly j
stipulated- that neither* of the .con
tracting parties shall order . or au
thorize acts of reprisal nor declare. war:
until all peaceful methods of satisfac
tion or agreement have been exhaust
.cd. I These* means shall be the setting
forth in memorials of the offenses of
damages inflicted, with . competent
proofs or testimony to be presented
by? the aggrieved governments, and
should this satisfaction be denied,- the
decision :of the matter . shall .be sub- '
mitted to the arbitration of- one of the.
governments of Central ' America, . or of
| the American . continent.'? There 1 has
been more or less conjecture as to : the*
formation \of- a ; Central* American na
tion, but this treaty appears to be the '
first practical step toward : its accom
plishment. Its proclamation at Te
gucigalpa on April 15, : was followed
by a meeting at Managua of the min
isters of Salvador, Honduras and the "
other republics, with a view : to carry-*"
, ing out article 53 for the acceptance of
the treaty by all of the countries. The
text of another [ Nicaragua-Honduras
".treaty has also been received. ¥ It pro

Oregon Short Line Case Comes Up
I in St. Paul Today.
OMAHA, Neb., May 26.— 1n connec- •
, tion with an article on the hearing
: to take place in St. Paul tomorrow on
I the: offer" of the Oregon Short Line &
Utah \ Northern to pay - the overdue
coupons on the prior lien, the Bee says:'
The amount of "overdue interest ' Is
about $1,000,000, and the questions In
volved are many and complicated: It
is understood that the consolidated
bondholders propose to raise on re
ceiver's certificates about $750,000 and
rely upon obtaining from the present
.receivers the property, together with
unexpended net earnings sufficient In
amount to more than cover the differ
ence. There is also a large sum due
for accrued interest on the prior life
bond, which will also probably be the
subject of contention between the
prior lien holders and the holders of
the junior lien. It seems at the recent
hearing that the unadjusted claims
against the receivers amount to a very
considerable sum, although the amount
was not disclosed. The question is,
therefore, likely to include a review
; of the claims of . certain of the prior
j lien holders, independently of the
I 'necessity for determining the general
question as to how far the funds in
j the hands of the present receivers
j • shall be withheld for the purpose of
meeting claims asserted against them.'
It is alsolsaid to be- likely a determined
effort will be made by the consolidated
bondholders to obtain possession of
I the road.
The appointment of a separate re
ceiver for the Short Line system must,
I It is thought, seriously disturb its re-
I lations with the Union Pacific. It is
j also reported and believed here that
i should the Short Line be divorced
j •from the system, a different, policy
j will be pursued by the Union Pacific
receivers from that followed in the
past in order to protect the Union
Pacific from outside competition.

of the Almighty in this His creative
work. If the world is to go forward
instead of backward; if the nations of
the world are to prosper and be peace
ful and happy, we -dare not lose sight,
for one moment, of the design of God
in our creation. It is, indeed, the work
of the devil to turn men and women
away from that purpose and design
whenever possible, and into illegiti
mate channels. The tendency of the
age is a destructive tendency, and per
ils;in may and .varied forms little
known to the masses surround us.
For what purposes, then, did God
create' woman? Her head is not so
large as man's; was she destined, then,
to be his Intellectual superior? No;
and, whilst we have no desire to be
little the splendid mental ability of
woman, we still believe that it must
be admitted that all great and stu
pendous mental achievements have
been accomplished by men; all the
profoundest philosophers, physicians,
scientists and discoverers have been
men. The muscles of woman are not
tough and sinewy like those of men,
and this ought to teach us that she
was never destined to do man's work,
and that it is a sin against God's great
plan of creation for men to be idlers,
or to cast the burden of support upon
the women,, as is the case among -the
savages of the world. The very frame
of woman shows that she was not built'
for heavy lifting, or great physical ef
forts. Again, the fact : that woman's
body, is unprotected by nature, whilst
man is given a natural covering to
protect him from wind and weather,
should further teach us the relative
position of man and woman in the
struggle of life. In short, man was
made f -r -ac field, for toil, to be'
THE BURDEN BEARER
and the bread winner of earth; wom
an was made as man's helpmeet; to
be the bread maker, the refiner and
the purifier of mankind.
It cannot be denied that one of the
great purposes in the mind of our
Heavenly Father in the creation of
woman was the family, the home, the
preservation and purification of the
human race. ' The proper and God
intended sphere of woman,, therefore,
is in the home and family; but the
tendency of the age is to take woman
out of this relationship and to
DRAG HER INTO BUSINESS.
* I was not able to secure any statis
tics as to the increase of female em
ployes in past years, as, the matter
seems not to have been brought to the
notice of our labor, bureaus until very
recently, and to some of them not at
all; but the labor commissioner of our
state can be quoted as saying that the
| increase has been quite considerable
within the last few years, as more
avenues have been opened up for the
employment of women. ._ One of the
direct results of this we believe is
seen in the great reduction in the num
ber of marriages. We know that the
extremely hard times has had much
to do with this matter of mariages, but
the times alone will not account for the
fact that there were actually less
weddings in this city last year than
there were in 1884, ten years ago, al
though the population has more than
doubled in that time. The number of
weddings in this city steadily In
creased until "88," but they have been
decreasing (with one exception) ever
since— 'B4, 1,127; *85, 1,144; 'S6, 1,326; '87,
1,415; '88, 1,568; '89, 1,505; '90, 1,437; '91,
1,334; "92, 1,450; '93, 1,300; '94, 1,125—
tually two less than the number of mar
riages in '84, ten years ago, and less
than those of any year since '84. And
this, too, in the face of the fact that
the population has more than doubled.
This is a mater of very grave import
ance, and if this decrease continues, al
lowing for the Increase of population,
dark days are before us.
And why are our young women
leaving the home and going into busi
ness? Many of them are compelled so
to do in order to live. Their fathers
are not able to support the family be
cause of the decrease in wages and the
increase in the expenses of living, or
the parents are dead and the young
women. are compelled to seek a living
by going out to battle with the world
side by side with men.
WHAT IS THE RESULT?
The first result is to cut wages and
to throw men out of employment. A
young women has the advantage over
most men, in that she can get her
own meals, and do her own ' sewing,
and such like, at very little | expense,
where a young man Is compelled to
board and hire; and is, therefore, at
greater expense. rlf a young man and
a young woman' are both after the
same position the majority of employ
ers will favor the young woman, be
cause of her sex, out of respect, pity
or sympathy, thinking that "it Is
easier for a young, man to be put off
and to knock about to find something
to do than it is " for a young woman,
and so the 'young-man is out, or if
in, is compelled to work for- a reduc
tion in wages. The number of young
women seeking work as bookkeepers,
typewriters, clerks, typesetters, agents,
machine operatives, lawyers, doctors,
ministers, teachers/and in almost 'all
the different callings of life has ;. so

congested the \ labor world that the
supply Is greater than the demand and
the wages have fallen.
Some of these young women re
ceive salaries . far above the average
for men. Young female commercial
travelers, who represent such inter
ests as the tobacco trade, receive from
$1,200 to $1,800 a year. They are pre
ferred to men. This is chiefly the men's
fault. The . latter spend a great many
dollars on their different .vices— liquor,
cigars, gambling, or worse— and are
in the habit of charging such expenses
to the house they travel for. Women
travelers are free from like extrava
gance. : ".-; "".';■'.:
Of course a woman without a family
to support or with only a father, or a
mother depending upon her, can work
for less than a man who has a family,
and consequently most, of the business
men of the world employ the young
woman, where she can do the work,
because It is p. saving to them, and let
the man J with the family seek work
elsewhere or go without. The conse
quences are truly disastrous. The man
thus reduced is compelled to send his
children out as bread winners Instead
of allowing them to attend school;
and the girls, after they are through
with school, to remain at home with
mother and learn the art (for it is an
art) of housekeeping. In this way the
labor market is further glutted, wages
further reduced, and we may well ask
ourselves where will this thing end? '
IDLENESS AND CRIME.
For years the national conference of
corrections and charities has been seek
ing the cause of the remarkable and
continuous increase of crime. I be
lieve that I can see one most produc
tive cause. The proportion of men to
women among. criminals is about 99 to
1. Why is, this? Is it not reasonable to
conclude that very many of these
young men would have much preferred
to work for an honest living if they
could have procured work at a rea
sonable wage? Unable to get re
munerative work, they are forced into
crime. "But if women would confine
themselves to the legitimate sphere of
woman, even here In St. Paul alone,
there Is little doubt that not only
would there be more vacant places
than there are now men out of em
ployment, but the average of salaries
would be at once increased.
It is marvelous how wages have
fallen within a few years. A single In
stance, which concerns a large, hard
working and intelligent class of men,
is but one of hundreds. Ten years ago
a young railroad clerk in the general
offices In this city, who had had two
or three years' experience, would re
ceive at least $60 a month. Now the
same clerk Is fortunate to be hired
at $30 a month. This Is merely one-half
of the former salary. The cost of liv
ing Is much less, certainly, but it has
by no means declined one-half. The
real reason for the decreased wage lies
in the absence of demand for the ser
vices of young men.
There are, I am convinced, many
young men who would gladly have
homes of their own, but their wages
are so small that they feel that they
cannot afford it; under the present
condition of, the labor world they can
scarcely make enough for themselves,
to say nothing of supporting a family,
and I do not doubt but that there are
many who -are thus driven into lives
of crime, because they cannot make
a living in an honest way.
There. are other: young men who
stay single because so many of the
young women of the day are reared
to such extravagant ideas, unwilling to
be the good old-fashioned wives and
mothers. * They feel that they must
have servants and nurse girls and
everything that the wealthy are able
to enjoy. Or they have been standing
in stores or working at other occupa
tions so long that they have a distaste
for the duties of home and are unable
to prepare a palatable meal at reason
able expense. Again these young
women have been earning from $60 to
$90 per month, many of them, for their
own use; and some of them will not
marry unless they can have a like
amount from their husbands to use as
they please. This means an income of
about $125 to $150 per month, and there
are not so very many young men that
are able to earn that, under present
conditions.. There are many young
women In this city, for example, who
after spending a year or two in study,
are drawing as large, and in some
cases larger salaries than many men
with families to support, and that, too,
though the men are fully as competent.
It cannot be denied, however, that
the young men themselves are often
largely to blame. They have been
drawing a certain salary and have
been in the habit of spending every
cent of it upon themselves; and we
could all doubtless do that if we tried
hard enough. Who is there that could
not spend $2,000 a year on self If
they had It. Then they think that it
will cost just twice as much to marry
and support a wife, and so, without
laying any away and trying to save
and look forward to having a happy
home and family around them as they
begin to go down the shady side of life,
they spend all they get and wait for
the time when some kind fate or for
tune shall suddenly double their in
come before they could afford to
mary; and I doubt if even then they
would think it worth while.
PLEA FOR HOME LIFE.
I am pleading this morning with
Paul, for the home life of our nation;
not that I do not think the young wom
en have not a right to exist, but that
it is the duty of the men, the fathers
and the husbands, to furnish them with
that existence, that they may employ
their time in works of love and benevo
lence for the uplifting of the human
race, for I must confess to you that I
do not think women in business uplift
themselves or those around them. How
can a modest, woman be present in a
court of law as an attorney on some
of the shocking divorce cases that
come before us, and still retain that
precious pearl of her existence, wom
It is the solemn duty of this nation to
struggle to restore wages to the men
that shall permit them to live and to
marry and to support their families so
that women may be kept out of busi
ness life as far as it Is possible, and be
Induced to become Home builders and
fulfil the part for which the Lord cre
ated them. "I will, therefore, that
the younger women marry, bear chil
dren, (which indeed is no disgrace as
some seem to think), guide the house,
give none occasion to the adversary to
Women, this is your highest, noblest
mission; the Lord, your creator, made
you as man's help-meet, not as man's
antagonist or competitor in the busi
ness world. It is said that Rome fell
for want of homes and families. _i is
a great and difficult problem, but I feel
it my duty to say: Fathers, keep your
girls out of business all you can; wom
en,- train yourselves for the home life
that you may make homes j for those
you love and those who love you, and
and that you may make those homes
the sweet, restful and attractive places
that they must and ought to be as the
nurseries of the young nation. It is a
duty you owe to your native land as
well as to your God. "
