Bolivia.
Colonel Moscosco, who accompanied
Tando iv the attack on Sucre, Las been cap
tured.
Eesuecting the monetary crisis which has
recently prevailed in Bolivia, the Sucre Dia
said on October __ttb : "An important law
has been issued In order that suflicient coin
currency shall be placed in circulation in
order to meet the daily requirements of
commercial and household traductions. It
is a blessing that the whole couutry lias
almost united in this effort to terminate this
monetary crisis and iv some way to remedy
the evils consequent ou the prevalent differ
ence iv price between silver aud paper, and
consequently in the purchaMng value of
each article. This question of the value of
paper has caused many lawsuits, and among
tnese have been some threateuiug the quiet
continuation of operations by the banking
and credit houses which found themselves
suddenly deprived of coin with which to
call in their votes. We believe the law now
in force will do much to normalize matters,
since this law orders all miners to deliver,
under penalty, to the mint, for coinage, nt
least one-fifth of all the silver they obtain
from the mines, aud this silver will be paid
for, ou delivery, iv coined money. "

FELL DOWN A SHAFT.
V n u » s Clarence Martin Meets With a
Terrlblo Death.
There was another fatal elevator accident,
similar to Ihat which cost Isaac M. Jordan
his life, last evening in the Jeffras Cloak
Company Building, 157 West Fifth street,
says the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Clarence Martin fell down a hatchway and
was instantly killed.
Martin Is 23 years old nnd lived at Green
up and Robinson streets, Covington. For
several years he was employed as collector
for Richard Harris, the shoe-dealer at 47
East Fonrth street. Shortly before 5 o'clock
last evening he called at tiie office of the
Jeffras Company, which is on the second
floor, aud delivered a pair of shces to
Charles H. Jeffras. There was no oue in
the office except Cashier George Foster, who
paid Martin $5 50, the amount due for the
shies. Martin receipted the bill, and Foster
turned and put it in the safe. Martin
started out, counting the money as he went,
and a moment later met with a horrible
death.
The doors leading to the stairs and the
elevator are almost alongside each other.
The door leading to the stairway was open,
but that leading to the elevator was closed.
The latter Is a sol id- look ing door, painted
white, tho word "elevator" being painted
upon it iv good-sized letters.
Martin was so taken up in counting the
money as he approached the door that he
went to the elevator door, and, without
knowing what he was doing, shoved it back,
stepping into space. His shriek startled
Cashier Foster and the employes, who
lushed downstairs. The first to reach him
were John Roberts and Frank Bill. When
they found him he was lying on his face.
His feet were on the wall several feet above
tbe cellar floor. He was carried to the first
Iloor and Patrol 1 sent for. He died be
fore the wagon arrived, but was removed to
the hospital. As he was deail lie was at
once removed to the Morgue. His neck was
broken, his ribs caved iv and three fingers
were fractured.
