The Bond Purchasers Will, How
ever, Continue to Assist the
NEW YORK, Sept. 13.— This day
was an exciting one, and for a time
bid fair to be a critical one in the
financial field, so that many feared
it might pass into history as a
smaller edition of a certain "Black
Friday" of years ago. But tonight
the disturbing elements are better
understood and the outlook for the
treasury and the maintenance of its
gold reserve is comparatively clear.
Uncertainty as to the intention of
the government bond syndicate to
maintain the reserve at the century
mark, and as to its ability to do so,
had disturbed the moneyed interests
increasingly throughout the week.
A crisis was reached this morning
when announcement was made that
the firm of Lazard Freres, which is
a member of the bond syndicate, had
engaged $2,500,000 of gold for ship
ment. This announcement naturally
gave rise to the impression that the
syndicate had withdrawn from its
controlling . position behind the
throne, and it sent quotations tum
bling in Wall street, besides starting
stories that the syndicate had dis
solved, that a bond issue was im
minent, and that the treasury would
fast drift back to its old position of
the^lark days of last winter. Before
the afternoon had passed several
of the city banks had come to the
aid- of the subtreasury with deposits
of gold made in exchange for green
backs, explanations had been made
by members of the syndicate and the
firm which started the panic, and
quiet had been restored when the
moneyed institutions closed their
doors fori the day. •
The gold deposits made by the
banks will offset the shipments of
tomorrow. The Hanover National
bank set the example with a deposit
of $500,000. That made $3,400,000 in
gold that the' Hanover bank has
paid in, President Howard said,
since the last loan was made. The
American Exchange National Bank
also paid into the treasury $200,
--000, and the National Bank
of Commerce followed suit "with an
other $200,000. With reference to this
deposit President Sherman said that
the $200,000 represented one-third of
his bank's gold' holdings, and that if
all the banks contributed gold in the
same proportion there would be no
further difficulty. The National
City bank is credited with an inten
tion to deposit $500,000. or double
that amount. It is expected in bank- j
ing circles that the deposits of gold
by the banks for greenbacks will
reach $6,000,000 this week. The ship
ments tomorrow make a total for
the week of $7,200,000, the largest
weekly out-flow on record, except
the $7,700,000 sent abroad in one
week last January, when the drain
on the reserve reached its highest
The following statement was au
thorized by the bond syndicate to
"The Impression has become general
that the members of the bond syndi
cate entered into an agreement with
the United States treasury to main
tain the $100,000,000 reserve until Oct.
1, prox., and that upon that date
said obligation will cease. Such is
not the case. The bend syndicate ful
filled all its obligations to the govern
ment in June last, and has not since
been boend in any way to the treas
ury. It is true that it has from time
to time since last June paid over vari
ous sums in gold coin to the treasury,
which have sufficed to maintain the
reserve, but it has done so volun
tarily, and will continue to do so in
the same spirit for the same mo
"So far as Oct. 1 Is concerned, It
has no relation \to the. action of the
bond syndicate, and It will continue
to deposit gold until Nov. 1 and Dec.
1 and Jan. 1, if feasible to do so. But
neither the bond syndicate nor any
one else can control the elements.
But the idea that its relations to the
treasury situation will be any different
on or after Oct. 1, from what they are
now, and have ; been all along, is
erroneous and should be corrected."
The following statement was mado
in writing by Messrs. Lazard Freres:
"Hoping that bills of exchange
against merchandise • export would
come in the market in fair amounts
during the first half of September, we
continued for a long time to supply
our customers with bills of exchange
for which we could not at the time
find cover. A combination of circum
stances leaves the Xnarket bare of
commercial bills and' makes necessary
the shipment of gold to cover part of
the accumulated indebtedness and to
continue supplying the daily demands
of the trade. The reasons for these
conditions are in part the late cotton
crop and the slow movement thereof
by Europe holding large quantities of
cotton at cheap prices, and its indis
position to buy freely at quotations
now ruling. Further reasons are the
poor demand for our wheat and the
low prices it brings, and the cheap
ness of money at this center, which
makes it undesirable for European
bankers to Increase their loanable
; funds here." ,~-v
In reply to questions, a member of
the firm said he desired to state
there was no special significance in
the shipment of gold, but that it had '
to go to - meet a temporary emer
gency, and with the moving ■ of the
cotton crop in a few weeks the whole
difficulty would adjust itself. .
J. Pierpont Morgan, head of the
government bond - syndicate, was
asked as to the truth of the rumors
of the dissolution of the syndicate.
Mr. Morgan replied: "The bond syn
dicate is stilT In the field. " There has
been no rupture. '■ The syndicate will
continue to do all that it can to help
maintain the treasury gold reserve at
the $100,000,000 mark. c The . obliga
tions of the syndicate expired, how
, ever, some time ago." „ ... ! ; -..
I .- _>. Morgan expressed surprise at
the slow movement of ; the cotton
crop and the present scarcity. of the.
bills against breadstuff He said that
undoubtedly the offerings .of ' those
bills would be daily increased in
the next few weeks, and thus a
safeguard against exports be had.
The president of a large down-town
bank;, which is an influential mem
ber of the bond syndicate, also de
nied the report that the syndicate
had abandoned its effort to main
tain the treasury gold at $100,000,000.
He said that the syndicate was seill
in the field; that it was accumulat
ing gold as fast as possible, and
that this gold, as soon as collected,
would be turned over to the treasury.
Subtreasury officials express confi
dence that the impairment of the
treasury reserve will be made good
by the syndicate. Besides the $2,500
--000 engaged by Lazard Freres, the
following announcements of gold
shipments tomorrow were made:
W. H. Crossman & Bro., $1,000,000;
Hoskier, Wood & Co., $600,000; Hard
& Rand, $200,000; Nesslage & Fuller,
$100,000; Handy & Harmon, $150,000
to $200,000. Zimmerman &Forshay
will forward £3,000 in English gold.
Treasury Officials Depressed and
Elated in Turn.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 13.— The news
that $4,500,000 had been withdrawn to
day for export from the sub-treasury
at New York was received here with
surprise, and the announcement cre
ated for the. moment something like
a sensation in the treasury depart
ment. This feeling, however, was not
shared by the high officials, who ap
parently regard the withdrawal as an
incident to the speculative spirit that
seems to pervade Wall street at this
time. The heavy withdrawals that
have been made recently are declared
to have been in the interest of specu
lators, and .; not to have been war
ranted by the present legitimate bus
iness conditions, or the legitimate de
mands for gold abroad. By some of
ficials it is thought that the withdraw
als are made with the sole purpose
of forcing another bond issue. It can
be stated, however, on excellent au
thority, that there will not be another
issue of bonds. The reason given is
that none will be needed. Those who
I are cognizant of the facts state that
the Morgan-Belmont syndicate, under
the terms of their contract, undoubt
edly will protect the gold reserve
against the inroads of .speculators,
and will see to it that a reasonable
balance will be maintained. No doubt
is expressed that as soon as the grain
shipments from the Northwest have
fully set in there will be an abundant
supply of foreign bills on the market
to meet every demand, and the with
drawals, it is thought, must neces
sarily cease
The announcement that the New
York banks had deposited $2,400,000 in
gold, with the promise of a consider
able, addition to that amount, was
quite as much a surprise as the ear
lier news of the ; withdrawals. This
prompt action of the banks was favor
ably commented upon, and the feeling
of depression and anxiety that per
vaded the department this morning
j - gave place to one of confidence. Nev-
I er before in the history of the depart
ment, officials say, has the financial
condition of the country contained so
| many contradictory elements, and
! never before have they been unable
j to give an intelligent forecast of what
■ was likely to result - from the then
existing conditions. Whether the an
ticipated cotton and grain shipments
| will relieve the situation so far as
I gold exportations are concerned re
mains to be seen. The amount of the
. exportations of gold during the last
twenty months is unprecedented.'
Since Jan. 1 of last year the gold coin
and bullion exported from the United
States aggregated about $169,284,300,
while the importations during the
same period amounted to only $48,813,
--500, which leaves the excess, of ex
ports over imports about $120,470,800.

Untold Thousands Participate; in
a. Monster Barbecue— The Lust
_. y
Camp 11 res. ■
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 13.— Sot
far as the veterans are concerned,
the twenty-ninth annual encamp
ment closed tonight, with as many
attractions as on any other night of
the week. The ladies, however, will
continue in session tomorrow. To
day there were over 70,000 at the
"old Kentucky barbecue," and to
night the camp-fires were largely at
tended, with the principal events
at Music hall, Phoenix Hill gar
den and National park. Among the
speakers were Gens. Gordon, Buck
ner, J. W. Burke, Cassius M. Clay,
Senator Burrows, Cols. M. D. Wick
ersham, Samuel McKee, H. C. Rus
sell, John H. Leathers and others.
The veterans remain longer than
usual this week, as many are going
to other army events further south,
and to the Atlanta exposition. Gen.
Lawler and staff leave Sunday night
to spend the first part of the week
at the national encampment of the! j
Sons of Veterans and the last of next'
week at Chattanooga and Chickai
mauga battlefield. . '■''' ■'„ .||
Independence hall will be the per-"
manent depository of all the books,'
records and relics of the Grand-
Army. Past Commander Wagner, rof
Pennsylvania, offered this famous 1
old building, in the name; of the peo
ple of Philadelphia at the encamp
ment this afternoon, and it was ac
cepted. "An effort was made to abol
ish the "house of lords" at all fut
ure encampments. By this all" past
commanders-in-chief will lose their
rights to seats in future encamp
ments. The proposition created a f
lively discussion and was defeated.
Dr. J. B. Whiting, _f Janesville, Wis.,
was elected surgeon general by ac
clamation. Rev. E. J. Hill, of New
Jersey, and Rev. .Thomas C. -Iliff,. 0$
Utah, were nominated forchaplalnf
in-chief. The vote resulted in th*
election of Mr. Iliff. , r J£
The ladies of the G. A. R. devoted
the morning session to considering
the action of the national meeting,
at Pittsburg last year in abolishing
benefits. After long discussions this
action was rescinded, and the ques
tion of benefits was left to each state
department. Although the ladies had
lunch at their * halls to facilitate
business, they proceeded slowly. The
Woman's Relief corps did nothing
yesterday or today; owing to the in
junction against the national, offi
cers restraining them from unseat
ing Mrs. Ada F. Clark, of Canton,
one of the past commanders of the
department of Ohio, who had been
court-martialed and suspended, and
who was reinstated at Washington
three years ago. Late in the day
the court refused to make the - in
junction permanent, and Mrs. Clark
had to retire. The ladies remained
in Liberty hall, holding camp-fires
and receptions, listening to the old
army nurses and others tell their ex
periences, while the lawyers were
arguing at the court house for and
against making the injunction .per
manent Mrs. Clark insisted that
she had no desire to delay business,
but the other ladies would not pro
ceed till the courts decided whether
Mrs. Clark should be allowed to re
main in the hall.
The report of the G. A. R. com
mittee on pensions, after reviewing
the work accomplished by the sol
diers of the Union during the war
and the laws passed in their behalf,
says: . ; ' __
"In some quarters the old soldier has
come to be looked upon in the light of
a burden, instead of a great and pa
triotic person, as he should still ap
pear . when viewed in his .true . char
acter. Referring to this view— wholly
unworthy of a great - and ' patriotic
people— constructions have been put
upon the laws, wise and just in them
selves, by and under which burdens
and restrictions have been imposed
upon those illy able to stand up under:
them. The just provisions authorized
have been grudgingly doled out, as
though the laws passed in. the interest
of the pensioner, as a just recognition
of the obligations of the country, were %
criminal laws, to be strictly con
strued, and the public beneficiaries
thereof were public enemies or para
sites seeking admission to the treasury
of the United States,"
After commenting further on the
justice of the pension laws, and the
purpose for which they were passed,'
the report continues: .: . . i
"We demand for our comrades the
just due which the country gladly con
cedes. No niggardly cutting down of
pensions under the guise of reissue, 'no
partial and grudging allowances that
cut here and there, will meet th
full measure of , duty that the country
owes to Its surviving heroes. Nothing
short of full measure, dealt- with an
honest hand, a liberal .heart,, will ever'
meet with the .approbation of the
American people.; For this we • appeal
jto the grateful, patriotic sentiment of
the whole people, and we earnestly be
lieve that our appeal will not be in
vain. ..— ;':■ '
- .'.'Receding from no position that we
have heretofore taken, ; reaffirming . all
our previous declarations on 'the sub
ject,- we specially demand a liberal and
just construction of the laws j passed
for the benefit of the pensioner, to the
end that 'in his declining days. he may
not be harassed with doubts born of
distrust .or ,th& difficulties: thrown
around him by a rigorous or restricted
construction of the laws passed in the
past to relieve his condition.'* ""»--". _;■',.» ;"

was the adoption of a resolution fa

There was an adverse report on j the

and V the • report was adopted. The
camp further declared Itself against
long parades and marches at future

about on r account of the large num

on the track with a dash and spirit
which assured the crowd that the
races of the afternoon would be
lively contests if they could go as
they felt like going. The only man
who seemed to be Inconvenienced by

From almost any point of Iview the
day was a success, and was a large
part in making the state fair of 1895
one of the best and most gratifying
from all. points of view, in the his
tory of the North Star state. In
this respect attesting the truthful
ness of the statement of Indiana's
veteran agricultural editor, Gen. J.
B. Conners, who, after looking over
everything carefully a day or two
ago, said: "I have never in my
experience in attending : state fairs,
and I have seen nearly everything in
this country along the line of fairs,
visited a , fair where the interests
of agriculture were . more fittingly
or fully set : forth than in this, the
state fair of Minnesota, and I con
gratulate the citizens of the state
upon their splendid agricultural
showing." ." ' -•;

to celebrate carnival night. Wabasha

ners, while Seventh street from Wa

with a mass of humanity. The illu
minations were the most brilliant of
the week, especially on Seventh street.

provided by ; the merchants, and a

of the Golden Rule proved such an at
traction as. to completely fill the street"
sidewalks and . all, from the Golden
Rule building across to that of the

tions displayed In the show windows
drew similar crowds. The street seemed
absolutely closed to all traffic, even to
pedestrians. No one, to look upon it,
would have deemed it possible for a
street car to plow through the human
obstruction, yet the cars were not ma
terially delayed. The crowd would re
main almost immovable until a car,
with its clanging bell, had approached
within a few feet, when, with a hur
ried scramble and shuffling of feet,
the people would clear the track and
the car would quickly pass by, and an
instant later the gap would close and
the track be concealed from view.
I One of the chief centers of attraction
during the fore part of the evening
was Bridge square and the north end
of the Wabasha street bridge. Here
thousands assembled to view the fire
works, which were touched off on the
West side bluff. W. A. Van Slyke had
charge of this feature. The point of
view selected by the people could not
have been better, but as much cannot
be said for the pyrotechnical display.
It consisted chiefly of sky-piercing
rockets, most of which failed to ex
pand into flowers of varl-colored light,
but vanished in the darkness as soon
as they had shot their course. Occa
sionally a shower of brilliant globules
would follow the explosion of a rocket,
but the majority behaved in a most
disappointing manner.
Another attraction of carnival night
was the masked ball at the Auditor
ium on Eighth street. It was the or
iginal Intention of the maskers to par
ade on Sixth and Seventh streets, but
this part of the programme was aban
doned, although ten or twelve youths
and boys, togged out in fantastic and
clownish costumes, their faces adorned
with streaks of red paint burnt cork,
etc., walked through the streets, fol
lowed by a perfect swarm of yelling
and screeching small boys. The mas
querade ball opened up about 11 p. m.
orations upwards of 4,000 Japanese
lanterns will be used. A large number

' play during the progress of the even

the greatest practical benefit to the
farmers, and they are not slow in
realizing and appreciating the good
results which must accrue from the

day was by Mrs. I. E. Tilson, of West

gave a' number of statistics showing
the advance made in both the num
ber and quality of exhibits throughout

which she had visited, Minnesota's
exhibit was of the highest quality.

of benefit,; suggesting . that, instead :of
the present indiscriminate arrange

be - classified! and those of similar
breeds placed In the same portion of

The state bar association held Id
annual meeting yesterday afternoon
in the supreme court room of the
capitol with about forty prominent
members of the profession from dif
ferent parts of the state in attend
ance. - The meeting was called to
order by President W. J. Hahn, and,
in the absence of Secretary Ozmun,
Hon. F. G. Stevens was elected sec
retary pro tern.
The president gave a short ad
dress, in which he outlined the pur
poses of the association, urging the
members to maintain the dignity of
the profession and keep the stand
ard high. He advised them to
strengthen the organization and be
ready to present a solid front to the
legislature in demanding remedies
for the evils that threaten the asso
A discussion of the question "Shall
there be a constitutional convention,
and, if so, when?" followed, led by
Senator C. K. Davis, who urged. the
necessity of revising the constitution
and getting some of the tangle out
of the laws. The discussion was gen
eral, most of the members present
taking part.
.- All of the officers were re-elected
for the coming year, the list being:
W. J. Hahn, president; H. F. Stevens,
vice president; E. H. Ozmun, secre
tary, and D. F. Simpson, treasurer. '
. Quite a spirited discussion arose
over a motion offered by Mr. Simp
son in regard to amending the by-laws
of the association. He suggested that
in order to bring local organizations
more in touch with the work of the
state society, the president and sec
retary of every local bar association
ought to be made members ex-officio
of the governing board. An amend
ment to the constitution to this effect
was finally made.
Resolutions on the death of Tilden
R. Serines were passed, and. a motion
that all' members of the bar.in at

ed to the secretary for membership
be admitted to the association adopted.

Twelve years ago three score of Min
nesota's brightest legal minds feasted
on wit, wisdom and eloquence on the
occasion of the first annual banquet
of the State Bar association. So much
good came of that memorable gather
ing that it was unanimously declared
to be a yearly event thereafter and
so it has been. Lawyers are as hard
to bring together as newspaper men,
and while the i banquets have always
been attended by a limited number
of men. still as a rule the prominent
sections of the state have been rep
resented and the gatherings have al
ways proved treats of a tare order
to the hard-working and .worried bar
Last night they came together for
the thirteenth time at the Windsor
hotel, and half a hundred prominent
attorneys from different parts of the
state were present. Previous to tha
dinner the guests and local attorney^
met In the hotel office and Indulged
In- greetings , and social intercourse,
and at 8 o'clock the feast was an
nounced.- Col. Monfort had prepared
an elaborate menu and fully an hour
and a half was spent in making It dis
appear, at the end of which time Gen.
W. J. Hahn, of Minneapolis, presi
dent of the association, rapped for
order and announced that speaking
was in order. Judge Flandrau, by
unanimous request was the feature
of the evening, and his reminiscences
were greatly enjoyed. He went back
to the pioneer days when the first
judge held court in one of the primi
tive structures, of that date, coming
to St Paul -on a raft or some other
equally rude mode of transportation.
The peculiar proceedings and charac
ter of prisoners and crimes in those
earlier days were graphically de
scribed by Judge Flandrau) who, by
reason of his long residence and prac
tice In the state, probably has a great
er store of knowledge concerning the
rise and progress of the Minnesota bar
than any. other lawyer in the state.
He is never so much at home as when
relating the trials and tribulations of
the struggling attorneys in the days
when this neck o' . the woods was
peopled only with Indians and plains
men. He related how the first judge
came here from lowa to hold court
and pictured with rare fidelity the
experiences of the jurist in his wan
derings through the unbroken wilder
ness in search of the court house and
the only officer of the law the place
contained. It was a recital that in
terested and amused in the highest
