DREW A BIG AUDIENCE.
Senator Yoorhees Makes the Effort of His Life in Favor of Repeal. The Noted Indianian Listened to With Close and Eager Attention. Washington, Aug. 28.— There was gathered within the walls of the senate chamber during the day a larger at tendance of senators on the floor and spectators in the. galleries than there has been seen for many a day. The oc casion was the announcement that the senate was to be addressed by Mr. Yoorhees (Dem. f Ind.), chairman of the finance committee, in favor of the bill, reported by him, discontinuing the pur chase of silver bullion. The speech be gan at 12:26 and closed at 2 p. m. and was listened to from beginning to end with close and eager attention, both on the floor and in the galleries. There was but one attempt to divert Mr. Yoorhees from the current of his speech but he declined absolutely to yield to the interruption. There was also but one manifestation of Approval From the Galleries, and that was promptly suppressed and its repetition forbidden by the vice president. The speech was followed by an argument from Mr. Dubois (Rep., Ida.) in opposition to the bill as a meas ure to establish gold monometallism, and one from Mr. Palmer (Dem., Ills.) in support of the bill and suggesting the difficulty, if not impossibility, of bimetallism according to the Chicago platform.

Mr. By num (Dem., Ind.) made a short but in cisive argument in favor of the Wilson bill. The surprise of the day was the speech of Mr. Hepburn (Rep., la.), who was controller of the treasury under the Harrison administration. He disa greed with his party colleagues and em phatically declared against the repeal of the Sherman law. Mr. Jones (Dem., Va.) closed the day’s debate with an ar gument in favor of bimetalism.

The party managers and the rank and file of the delegates already assembled can see no other way out of the chaos existing. The nomin ation of Governor Boies under the cir cumstances which surround it will be an event of an unusual nature in poli tics. He has twice held the office of governor and has written a letter de claring himself conscientiously opposed to third terms and declaring himself not a candidate and wishing to retire to private life. The party looks to him as its leader and has been unable to agree on any other man. Terre Haute, Ind., Aug. 28.— A tele gram has been sent to Senator Voor hees, signed by wholesale and retail merchants, manufacturers and bank ers, irrespective of party, and the edit ors of all the newspapers here, saying: “We heartily indorse your efforts to re lieve the financial stringency now ex isting throughout the entire country and trust you will be successful in se curing the speedy enactment into laws of both the bills reported by you from the finance committee without amend ment.” ' Des Moines, la., Aug. 23.— The lowa crop bulletin says: Corn is making good progress, but rapid maturity is retarded by cool nights.

Wheat Traffic So Far This Sea son but a Fraction of For mer Years. New York, Ang. 23. —T0 those who are cnrions to discover the cause of the great falling off in Western railroad earnings, the returns of the present crop movement will be enlightening. The enormous stock of wheat in city •torage warehouses—even now nearly double what it was a year ago—has thus far met a continuously heavy ex port d emand. But it » noticeable that the shipments from the farms to the great interior receiving points have meantime fallen to a small fraction of their average. At points such as To ledo and Duluth, which thus far in the season have been the chief source of New York’s supply, the stock on hand shows rapid shrinkage; daily carload receipts meantime falling to less than one-third of last year’s record. Chicago received by the granger roads last week barely one-sixth the quantity of wheat it took in the same week of 1892, and though this special decrease is largely due to the city’s determined hoarding of its own existing wheat stock, The Effect Upon Railroad Traffic is, of course, none the less serious. The shrinking in supplies at the large cen ters of distribution suggests that the supply on farms will soon be impera tively needed. The full awkwardness of the monetary break down is pretty certain to be felt. Much of the recently imported gold has doubtless already gone West to supply the needs which the New York banks have usually met, and to that extent the problem may find solution, At present, however, freight traffic in the wheat region continues in a state of almost contfilete paralysis. It is meantime noticeable and encour aging that the traffic in both corn and smaller grains holds up in ample vol ume. But for this fact the Burlington directors might very possibly last week have acted otherwise on their dividend. But since it has proved possible to move the corn in quantity to market, it may he counted on that some means will be found to move the wheat BANKS NOT AFFECTED. lowa Institutions With Which Don aldson Had No Connection. Sioux City, la., Ang. 28.— The dis patch sent out from Kansas City relat ing to the disappearance of F. M. Don aldson, formerly of Sioux City, where he was manager of the Union Trust company, contains errors as to banks in Northwest lowa, which formerly had dealings with the defunct com pany.

It is strong and solvent The banks at Sloan, Castana and Cushing are running, and, it is be lieved, in good condition. The Wood bine bank was investigated by the Btate hank examiner only a few days ago, who reported it to be absolutely safe. The First National Bank of Ida Grove went into liquidation some time ago. The Aurelia bank, which closed sev eral weeks ago, reopened and is run ning. The Ute bank is still closed. Fort Wayne, Ind., Aug. 28.—Freight business on the Pennsylvania Railroad company’s line has been so slack for the past week that many men have been idle.

Rome, Ang. 28. —The Italian govern ment is taking steps to punish the offi cials who are held responsible for not preventing rioting in this city. The attempt by the mob to burn the French embassy in this city, in revenge for the massacre by Frenchmen of a number of Italians who are employed at the salt works at Aigues-Mortes, France, opened the eyes of the government, more fully, to the fact that grave international complications were more than likely to grow out of the disturbances. The prime minister and minister of the in terior have issued a decree ordering the suspension from office of Senator Ga len da, prefect of Rome; Signor Sandri, chief of police, and Signor Majnetti, in spector of police in the district in which the French embassay is situated.

August Reicert acted as spokes man. Addressing the mayor he said: “We want you to look after the street contractors.” Then he branched into a tirade against the manner in which the contractors treated the men. “We are not oxen.” he said, “and if we work we want to be paid.” The mayor advised the men to dis perse, saying the city contract work would be all right m two weeks, as soon as the city could get money, the city’s money now being tied up in failed banks. The men then started a parade down the street, attempting to break into stores and taking fruits and vegetables from stands on the street and eating them.

Chinese in the San Joaquin Valley Being Driven Out, San Francisco, Aug. 28.—Excite ment in the San Joaquin valley over Chines* still continues, but there have been no explosions of violence such as were feared Saturday night. Most of the places have no telegraph service after 6 o’clock in the evening, so it is impossible to say wheather the threats made at Barkersville and other places have been carried out. Barkersville is patrolled by armed guards and any at tempt at violence would end in blood shed. At Fresno a force of deputy sheriffs prevents trouble, but the mob of 800 unemployed will surely make trouble, as it includes many vicious tramps. All the Chinese have been driven from Selma and only a handful remain at Tulare. A Complete Fizzle.
