WAsniXGTOX. June 2T. The cabinet
meeting called yesterday t o consider finan
cial questions was attended by Secretaries
roster, Tracy, Xoble, Rusk, and Post
master General Wanamaker. Secretaries 1
Blaine and Froetor and Attorney General
Miller were absent, and their departments
were not represented. The questions dis
cussed were the continued . coinage of
silver and the change in the form of the
asset and liability statement. Secretary
Foster made the following statement as to
the result of the cabinet meeting, affect
ing the coinage of silver: "After a full
and careful consideratiou of the law re
lating to the coinage of silver, it is found
by the secretary that the art of March 3,
1S91, requires that the secretary of the
treasury shall as soon as practicable, coin
the trade dollar bars into silver dollars.
The ll.'iivy Demand from Dimes.
'He also rinds that 8130,000 has tven ap
propriatiHl for the recoinape of the sub
sidiary silver coin into such acnomina
tions as will best awe it eirculation.
Thffe is constant demand for small coin.
principally uimes, wuicii tue mint,
have not been able to supply. The sc
retary of the treasury has decided that his
first duty in this matter is to obey the
direction of congress. Congress has order
ed the coinage of the trade dollar bars into
standard silver dollars. The coinage of
the trade dollar bars in this manner will
transform what cost .".07,7U5 into 5,H"
1 standard dollars. The secretary finds
that it will require perhaps four months
to perform the work of coining trade dol
lar bars into standard dollars anirrecoia
ingtho subsidiary silver. Therefore the
question of the continued coinage of, Sil
ver dollars as heretofore is not a practical
one at present."
The Korm of Treasury statement.
The cabinet also decided to cSangtj the
form of the aset and liability statements
issued from the treasurer's office daily
aud at the lnginning of each month. In
the new form of statements the net ear
plus will disappear and only mi available
cash balance will be carried. Other
changes of a minor character will 1 made,
but what t hey will le has not yet leen de
cided by Sec retary Foster. In a general
way the new form of statement, Kth of
the debt and assets aud liabilities will
closely resemble t he statements put out
when Senator Sherman was secretary of
the treasury. These changes go into ef
fect the 1st of July, the beginning of the
next fiscal year. The extension of the 4'-a
per cent, lionds was not considered, but
will probably come up at next Tuesday's
The Trade Dollar Bullion.
The general impression prevails in offi
cial circles that the action of the cabinet
postpones the consideration of the con
tinued coinage of silver for the present.
In lieu thereof trade dollar bullion will
be coined in an amount equal to monthly
coinage by the treasury during the pres
ent fiscal year. Owing to the mandatory
coinage of 2,000,0i)( ounces, or 2,583000
silver dollars per month, as required by
the act of July 14. 1S0O, until the first prox
imo, it has been impracticable to coin any
of this trade dollar bullion.
Rerohiag of Abraded Coin.
Congress at its session made an appro
priation of Io0,000 for the recoinage of
uncurrent fractional coins in the treasury
abraded below the limit of toletance.
This is about as much as has beeo-appro-priated
for this purpose during the past
five or six years. Much of this abraded
subsidiary silver will be coined into dimes.
The coinage of dimes during the last
three years has beten about 31,564,7fti
pieces. The number of pieces of the de
nominations of 5 and 1 cent struck off At
the Philadelphia mint during the past
three years aggregates 11,579,071, all of
which has Iteen absorlipd by the public
and there is every indication, treasury
officials say, that the demand for this
class of coinase for months to come will

An Order for Sale Raises Quite
Washington, June 27. Acting Secre
ta ry Spaulding yesterday decided a pecu
liar case touching the prohibition laws ol
Maine. The state law prohibits the sale
of intoxicating liquors. Some time ago
twenty-four lottles of whisky were im
ported at Kockland, Me., and forfeited for
violation of the internal revenue laws.
By. a rule of the treasury department nl!
forfeited .oods are advertised in the public
pirints and sold at auction. The f orfeited
whisky was advertised to be sold at auc
tion July 1.

The People's Prohibitory Enforcement
league Of Rockland, Me., entered an earn
est protest against the sale, Mr. Mitch
ell, its secretary, in a communication to
Secretary Foster, stating that Nb act
could begone by the United States gov
ernment thafc would more shock the con
sciences of the people of y&a state than
the sale of intoxicating liqtrors at public
auction," Acting Secretary paoJ ding bas

the law at the same time, by drdertn,g"the

THE 'VARSITY BOAT RACE.
Harvard Wins, Thus Causing the Inei.
pected to Happen.
New London, Conn., June 27. The
'varsity boat race, eight 'oars, four miles,
was rowed yesterday and was a surprise
to those who had watched the two crews
at their practice. The race was conceded
to Yale by all good judges and when the
Harvard boys came in eleven lengths
in front there was a lot of mourners who
bad been giving odds against her. The
Start was made at 11:40 a. m. Harvard
took the lead from the start, and kept it to
the end, gradually increasing it, while the
Yale crew seemed to get rattled and lose
heart. There were six lengths between
the boats at the mile and ten lenghts at
S4 miles. It is admitted that the race
was won on the merits of the crews. The
time was 21:23.
TTO YVpV Men nn tl.i.r.l
When the race was run the Harvard
boys painted the air red the Harvard col
orswhile their defeat painted the faces
of the Yale men blue. The trouble with
Yale seemed to be that two of her crew
Stroke Gould and Hageman, So. 7 were
not equal to the occasion. They could not
stand the strain. Gould's strokes were
short, and. grew shorter and less effective
as the pace went on. Then Hageman be
came rattled, and the workof the whele
crew became weak. It is doubtful, how
ever, even if these two weak points had
not developed, whether the race would
have ended differenlty.
Yale Stilt Has the Time Record.
Though Harvard has won a majority of
the races since they were inaugurated,
Yale is ahead since 1VT0, when the annual
contests were renewed after having been
omitted for .some years. Out of the six
teen events since that date Vale has .won
nine and Harvard seven.- Yale also has
the best time record r.Hm. 10s. made in

Philadelphia. June 27. Collector
Cooper returned yesterday from Atlantic
City where he had been for three days with
the members of the Pennsylvania Editor

They say he has proven himself to be a
safe man and he has given general satis

"Are they really all for Harrison?-" asked
There doesen't appear to be any who
oppose his renomination. All wit h "whom
I talked, and I talked to a great many,
were of one opinion they Jfavor Harrison.
While the Republican editors were a unit
for Mr. Harrison, the Democratic editors
debated as to Pattison as an expedient for
the presidential nomination."
"Then the Democratic editors were not
united upon Pattison?"
"They simply discussed him as an expe
