THE CABINET IN PERFECT HARMONY
No Discrimination To Be Made Against
Any Kind el United States Notes Uader
Any Circumstances Bis View of the I,aw
Stated Good Sense of the People and
the Credit of the Nation His Main Stay.
Washixgtox, April 23. To a representa
tive of the United Press the president
said: "The inclination on the part of the
public to accept newspaper reports con
cerning tbe intentions of those charged
with the management of our national
finances seems to justify my emphatic con
tradiction of the statement that the re
demption of any kind of treasury notes ex
cept in gold has at any time been deter
mined upon or contemplated by the secre
tary of the treasury or any other member
of the present administration. The presi
dent, and his cabinet are absolutely har
monious in the determination to exercise
every power conferred upon them to main
tain tbe public credit, to keep the public
faith and preserve the parity between gold
and silver and between all financial obli
gations of the government.
The Law Forbids Discrimination.
"While the law of i8M) forcing the pur
chase of a fixed amount of silver every
month provides that the secretary of the
treasury .Jn his discretion, may redeem in
cither gold or silver the treasury notes
given in payment of silver purchases, yet
the declaration of the policy of the gov
ernment to maintain the parity between
the two metals seems so clearly to regulate
this discretion as to dictate their redemp
tion in gold.
Depends on the Country's Credit.
"Of course perplexities and difficulties
have grown out of an unfortunate finan
cial policy 'which we found in vogue, and
embarrassments have arisen from ill ad
vised financial legislation confronting us at
every turn; but with cheerful confidence
among the people and. a patriotic disposi
tion to co-operate, threatened danger will
be averted pending a legislative return to a
better and sounder financial plan. The
strong credit of tbe country, still unim
paired, and the good sense of our people,
which has never failed in time of need, are
at hand to save us from disaster."
Hole in the Reserve Filled.
The receipt of gold from banks through
out the country at tbe close or business
last week had made the reserve good again
and left $700,000 of free gold, and treasury
officials were looking hopefully toward the
opening of the World's fair to bring gold
to this country sufficient to avert tne inva
sion of the reserve. More gold from banks
is looked for this week, but large ship
ments of the yellow metal have already
been arranged for, it is reported from New
York, and doubtless the $700,000 and what
more is received will be wined out and an
other dip into the reserve be made. This is
not looked upon with so niucn apprelien-
sion now, there having been no bad effects
from that of last week. ' t
. An Earlier Extra Session.
The financial situation is leading to
talk of an extra session of congress earlier
than the earliest date yet suggested.
which is September. In the treatment of
this question it is argued that the element
of? time becomes one of superior import
ance. And the fact that the tariff is to be
taken up adds to tbe necessity for congress
to get to work early. The authority of
the secretary to issue bonus is denied in
some quarters and congress should, it is
claimed, make this clear one way or an
other; also the question of interest on
the bonds is a pressing one. Kven if the
secretary has the authority it is for 4, A4
and 5 per cent., while it is asserted that
3 per cent, is sufficient.
NEW YORK PATRIOTISM NOTED.
HERE IS COMFORT FOR TEXAS.
How . Smart Financier Got Uncle Sam
to Do Business for Him.
New York, April 24. Secretary of the
Treasury Carlisle recently received an offer
to deposit gold in the sub-treasury at San
Francisco, which be accepted. The gold
was turned in, and payment for it to the
correspondent in Xew York of the depos
itor was authorized by telegraph. The
correspondent appeared at the sub-treasury
here and received greenbacks, which
be returned tbe next day and demanded
gold for them. Thus a transfer of gold was
made from San Francisco to New York
with a saving of freight and five days' in
terest, and a patriotic offer of gold was
converted into a transaction for profit.
There has been a long and mysterious
conference lietween the bank presidents
and Assistant Treasurer Conrad Jordan at
the clearing house. It is said that those
present talked over the situation and
agreed that parity between gold and sil
ver must be maintained and that the gov
ernment must meet all its obligations
with gold. It was practically decided"!
among tbe bankers that they would ad
vance no more gold to the treasury wit n
out an invitation, and even then not a
large amount without a bond issue.
Believes in Woman Suffrage.
NEW York, April 24. A letter is pub
lished here from Governor Osborn, of Wyo
ming, in which he advises the other states
to enfranchise the women. He says that
an experience in his state of twenty-five
years is highly satisfactory in every way.
No objections to the granting of suffrage
to women have proved true while great
good has resulted. The secretary of the
IJemocratice state committee of Wyoming,
J. C.Thompson.endorses Governor Osborn's
view, "as daes aresolutiou by the Wyo
ming house of representatives.

The Farls People May Congratulate These
Fair Young Daughters of Civilisation.
Delaware, O.. April 24. Five girls be
longing to the junior class and who all
lived at Monnet Hall, the ladies' seminary
here, recently formed a class fraternity
called Iona Xu. The society held its meet
ings in the rooms of the girls. The five
members were holding a secret meeting in
the bedroom of one of their members about
midnight, when nearly twenty of their
classmates burst in upon them. A solution
of nitrate of silver had been obtained and
with this powerful caustic pictures and let
ters were drawn upon the fair bosoms
and naked arms of the bevy of pretty dam
sels. Only by wearing high-necked dresses
and long sleeves could the disfiguring
marks be concealed.
The same night the male students re
solved upon a hazing. Five members of
the junior fraternity -Sigma Zeta Nu" were
preparing to initiate a classmate into the
mysteries of the order. Suddenly the door
was burst open and a number of the sopho
more fraternity rushed in upon them, tied
them hand and foot, and burned into their
faces the words D. O. A. and painted horns
on their foreheads. Denuded of clothing,
they were laid upon their faces and beaten
with a red-hot fire shovel. Gagged, and
unable to more than moan, the fearful
punishment went on until it is said some
of their tormentors sickened at the awful
sight, and tbe victims were left in the hall
until passers-by heard their groans and

in a lumber yard at Hull in which only
non-union men are employed has destroyed
the yard, burned the Citadel hotel and
melted the railway rails and telegraph

firemen, besides cutting the hose, until a
company of dragoons was called out to

on leaving was in two lines, the Americans
on the right and the foreigners on the left.
Anchors were tipped at 9 a. m., and amid
the booming of cannon from Fort Monroe,
the waving of handkerchiefs from the
shore by the ladies and cheers from thou

majestically 'a way on the bosom of old
Brastl's Navy-Comes Into Port.
The feature of Sunday was the arrival of
the three representatives of the Brazilian
navy, making the fleet complete with the
exception of the vessel bearing the Russian
vice admiral which was still missing.QThe
Brazilian vessels were let by the Aquida
ban, the first battleship to be represented
in the rendezvous. The flag of Brazil, a
a square of green with a diamond of yellow
and a globe of blue, swung from the stern,
while at the head was the flrg of the rear
admiral. Behind the battleship came the
Republica, a cruiser, and in the rear was
the Tiradentas, the smallest of the vessels.
As the Aquidaban eame up the bay the
regulation salutes were fired, and later vis

twenty-four hours' start and pulled out for

Statesmen Brave the Raging Main.
Senators Butler, Gray and Gibson of
Maryland, land Representative Benton
McMillan, of Tennessee, went with the
fleet to New York quartered on the San
Francisco. Representative Outhwaite, of
Ohio,, went on the Philadelphia. Nearly
every ship had a number of civilians and
correspondents. There were twenty-seven
ships in line at the start and the exo
dus of visitors began as soon as the
vessels were well out to sea. The Ameri
can girls who have been for a week mak
ing inroads into the hearts of the "jolly
tars" of the foreign vessels heaved a joint
sigh as the vessels departed, for their
campaign was nearly over, as the social
features at New York will not be equal to
those here for the past week.
Secretary Herbert Much Pleased.
Secretary Herbert, with dozens of ladies
and others, and Admiral Hopkins, attended
Sunday church services on the Blake. After
he came ashore he said in reply to ques
tions: "The sight of these ships is even more
imposing and grand than I had anticipated.
We feel that with the beautiful ships which
are anchored out here under our flag we
have no reason to feel ashamed; but ot
course there is a great deal yet to accom
plish. I will regard it as the crowning
point os my public life if by the time I
leave my present office I shall have done as
much for the building up of our navy as
has been so magnificently accomplished by
my predecessors. "
Tbe Tars Say Au Revoir.
The scene at the Hygia hotel on the last
evening of the stay of the cruisers was a
brilliant one: all the officers who could

Frankness Before Marriage.
No man should become engaged to a wom
an without having a perfectly frank talk
with her in regard to his means, and the
woman should be quite as honest in telling
of her qualifications and willingness to un
dertake to master the problem of making a
home on the income that seems assured to
them both. More than this, they both
should go over this question deliberately,
looking at all sides of it. The changed
mode of living, the self denials, the added
expense of sickness, if it should come, all
should be carefully considered. The man
who for years has spent his income upon
himself, living perhaps like his neighbor
who has a fortune back of him, will often
be frightened at the picture of the future
which this careful weighing of the subject
presents to him, and he may decide either
to wait a few years or else to do what un
fortunately a great many young married
people think they must do go to a board
The woman may have lived an aimless,
careless life, her father being able to sup
port her in comfort and perhaps elegance.
The picture may have as little charm for
her as the man who has asked her to marry
him, and she, too, is glad to settle upon the
boarding house as promising more style
and ease for less money than can the sim
ple home. This is one solution of the prob
lem. Another common happening is that
either one or the other finds or perhaps
both the man and the woman do that they
have not the independence and moral cour
age to be willing to live in such a simple,
unfashionable manner as their means would
compel them to. When two people feel
that way, it would be better for them and
the world at large that they remain single,
for we have today too many people who are
trying to live as if they had an income of
many thousands, when, in fact, it is often
the case that they have less than $2,000.
