VIEWS OF SENATOR DOLP ltiiHlnonH Is flejieriilly Unskilled In I.niv don anil I ho Stuck Murket Ir.-cgular. Associated Tress. Washington, June 27. One effect of the action of the government of India hna been to renew the demand for an early session of congress. Carlisle re ceived a cablegram from London an nounclng a further decline In the price of silver to 35d. At this price silver dollars are worth 78 3-4 cents. Sena tor Dolph, of Oregon, the only Pacific slope Senator In the city, said this morning: "I am In favor of maintaining all currency on a par with gold, but It seems to me this action of the Indian government will diminish, instead,, of increase the prospects of the repeal "of the Sherman law by the senate. I think the effect will be to make thoughtful members of congress hesitate before they further depreciate the val ue of sliver by suddenly throwing upon the market of the world 4,500,000 ounces of sil ver,' equivalent to nearly the whole American product now purchased and the stock held by the government, do not know anything better than there peal of the Sherman act can be done to relieve the situation, .but I am fearful that the repeal of that act would be disastrous to the finances of the gov. ernment and to silver." The senator further desired to correct the pub. llshed statement that he would not he present at the special session of con gress. He will probably be a better supporter of Cleveland's financial meas ures than will a majority of the demo cratic senators. Among the opinions obtained regard ing the situation affected by the act of the Indian government, was the fol lowing: Representative Oates says he is hopeful of a speedy settlement of the question when congress meets. He thinks the most logical and common sense thing will be the repeal of the Sherman law and the law levying ten per cent tax on state bank currency, and to provide for the free coinage of silver at such a ratio as to place it at a parity with gold. A. J. Warner of Ohio, president of the American bi-metaJllc league, "said "The stopping of the coinage of sil ver In India has Inaugurated a new monetary revolution. The Immediate consequences will be that silver will fall and gold will Increase in value faster than ever. Prices will fall everywhere as gold rises, and every ad vantage will Inure to creditors and creditor naUons. England has set out to subdue the world, not with arms, but with gold. What Is there left to do but for the western continent, under lead of the United States, to unite and act Independently, and establish t financial system founded upon equal ity, and calculated to secure stability In value, and one which will keep an evon balance between the debtor and creditor, not one calculated to rob with impunity the debtor for the beniflt of the creditor." oucreiary canisie, in response to a request to express his views on the fi nnnciai situation as affected by the action of India on silver, politely de clined. EFFECT ON LONDON STOCKS. London, June 27. Stocks closed Ir regular. All silver Issues are flat. The sliver question unsettles business and has caused a bear selling. The corres pondence between , the government of India and the Indian office, which led up to the suspension of the free coin age of silver by the Indian mints, has been made public. The council in a let ter written in June, advises that If the International monetary conference at Brussels fails, and a direct agreement between India and .the United States cannot be attained, the mints of India should be closed to the free coinage of silver and the gold standard be Intro, duced. Barbour, financial secretary of India, opposed the stoppage of free coinage until It becomes evident that the United States will not adopt free coinage. WALL STREET COMPLICATIONS. New York, June 27. The situation in Wall street has been further com plicated by the late developments In the silver market. This started re newed liquidates today. A' great ma jority of the Wall-street people are antl-sllverltes, and their interest lies in the repeal of the Sherman law. Conservative houses are lolng every thing in their power to limit trading, for the reason that the leading firms do not care to charge their clients more than the legal rate of Interest. After a review of the situation, Wall street is content to go slow until congress shows the way In the silver matter and the money market returns to some thing like Its normal condlUon. THE OUTLOOK BRIGHTER. Bankers In New York Report an Easier Feeling. New York, June 27. While according to the bank officers today, there; was no change In the conditions to warrant any marked increase in stock exchange prices there were not lacking reports of a character calculated to inspire con fidence, as well as some facts which Justified the belief that the outlook was brighter today than yesterday. No currency shipment to the country was reported at the sub-treasury today, but the banks shipped $300,000 and $400,000 to San Francisco direct, and also va rious small sums in Buffalo. The bank ers today reported the financial situa tion somewhat easier everywhere, but qualified the statement by saying the demands for rediscount, while no larg er, were very general from all over the country. No clearing house certifi cates were Issued today. Very seri ous affairs developed in Philadelphia. Several hig banks there are practi cally unable to remit to the banks in this city the balances due to them for remittances, and Philadelphia exchange is practically at a premium today in this city. DISCUSSED BY THE CABINET. Washington, June 27. Two hours were consumed by the cabinet discus sing the new phase of the silver ques tion today. Although the discussion, It Is said, took a wide range, It was nec essarily brought back to the one im portant, unmanageable point, that the executive had no power In the premises, congress alone being able to deal with measures for relief. As the president has decided to call congress together in the early part of September, the project of an earlier session of con gress, it Is understood, has . been dropped. As for the continuance of the purchase of silver and the Sher man law It was pointed out that a lit tle more than two months remained before, congress .would convene in ex tra session, and during the Intervening time the silver lots purchased would be of a comparatively small amount in view of previous purchases. SMELTERS' LOSSES. Denver, June 27. It is estimated that the smelters here and throughout the state lost In the aggregate $G50,000 on ore bought last week, and which had fallen so greatly In value during the t two days. THE COWBOY RACE ENDED. Chicago, June 27. The cowboy race Is ended. The first man In was John Berry, riding under protest. Two other contestants Emmett and Albright- followed two hours later. Gillespie arrived later in the day. He said he would be the real winner, having complied with all the vcon dltions. As soon as Berry's horse was sta bled President Shortall, of the Illinois humane society, accompanied by a couple of veterinary surgeons, attemp ed to conduct an inspection, to ascer tain the condition of the horses. "Poison" made a vicious kick at the humane official, who quickly conclud ed that there was plenty of animal life left In him, and no" justification fur Interference on the part of the so clety. Colonel Cody (Buffalo Bill) declared there . was a good deal more to the race than the prize. "It will show the world," said he, "what the native Am erican horse Is worth. European na tions have been- watching the race, and there will be a rush for the American animal. The European nations will want American-bred horses for their cavalry." WANTS NO MORE OFFICES. Portland, June 27. H. A. Smith, sheriff of Clatsop county, was here to day and had a conference with1 H. C. Grady, the United States marshal. He afterwards admitted that he had been offered the chief deputyshlp, but had declined It, owing to having another year to serve as sheriff, and when that is over he will drop out of politics al together.

NONE SUCCEED IN 1SMFIBG Three ofTliclr i. null', r Klll-d i nd Ml Hie Others Wounded in a Ha ill) H Ml the Guard. Associated Press. Sacramento ,Cal.,- June 27. At 3:30 this afternoon, at Folsom, a gang of convicts, consisting of George Sontag, his cousin John Sontag, the bandit life-timers Russell Williams, Ben WU son and Charles Abbutt, and a ten year convict named Dalton, sudden ly seized Frank Brlare, lieutenant of the guards', put a pistol to his head and started together to run up the hill, Before reaching the top of the hill It was developed that they had two Win- chesters and an additional revolver, which had been concealed among the rocks. Up to this time the guards had been unable to shoot, as Brlare was in the grasp of the would-be escapes, who were so closely banded together that a shot might mean death to him, Just before reaching the summit of the hill, Brlare Jerked away and the guards opened fire from all directions. The convicts took to the rocks and con cealed themselves as best they could and returned the fire as rapidly as pos Bible. The regular guard was s-.on re inforced by reserves fom the prison and a terrible fight took place, which lasted half an hour. After about thir ty minutes one of the convicts held up his hat on a rifle as a token of sur render, and Warden Aull, Captain Mur phy and a few guards advanced to the convict's stronghold, where they found Williams, Wilson and Dalton Btretched dead on the ground. George Sontag was. badly wounded by three or four bullets. He had one bad shot through the body and two through the thigh. AblK)ttWas groaning with a broken leg. At the beginning of the fight two prls oners were wounded, but were imme dlately carried Into the prison by other convicts. None of the prisoners es caped, nor were any of the guards in jured in the scrimmage. This outbreak was not unexpected, About three months ago the warden re ceived .reliable Information that Evans and John Sontag and their friends were about to make an attempt to car ry the prison by storm and release George Sontag. Without making any fuss about It, or even notifying the of ficers, with the exception of Captain Murphy and Deputy Vnrdcn Tru lie.i, Warden Aull prepared to receive com pany. Several picked men from vari rlous parts of the state were sent fo, and placed in responsible positions, new guns and pistols were distributed, and In fact everything was put In or der for a desperate fight. The killed are as follows: A. Dalton, five years for burglary In the first de gree, San Francisco; Harry Wilson, twenty years, burglary, Solano county; Frank Williams, United States con vlct, life, San Francisco. The wound ed are George Contant, alias Sontag, life, robbery, Fresno county, right leg badly broken In two places, and the left leg wounded In the thigh; will lose his leg and probably his life; Charles Abbott, life, murder, San Francisco, shot In the thigh, ankle broken and several shots about the body and face. The two men wounded accidentally were Thomas Schell, San Francisco, fatally shot through the abdomen; Joseph Duffy, San Francisco, flesh wound In the leg. ALTGELD DENOUNCED. Chicago, June 27. Charles B. Todd, one of tho Jurors In the famous anar chist case, was seen today with refer ence to Governor Altgeld's message in connection with the pardon of the men. He said In part: "I consider this an outrage on American citizenship. If Governor Altged had given the pardon as an act of mercy it would have been different, but for him to constitute him self Judge and Jury is outrageous." Charles II. Ludwlg, another Juror, said: "Any charge, by whomsoever made, that there was anything unfair or pre arranged In the selection of a Jury, Is perfectly preposterous." KOSHLAND DISCHARGED. Portland, Or., June 27. Tho case of M.

A Union Pacific Train Derailed East of Portland. Portland, June 27. The Union Paclfip fnst mall train was wrecked this morn ing about six miles from this city. One passenger, C. C. Chase, was killed and two others were Injured. When com ing out of a cut and rounding a curve at a high rate of speed the train. col lided with a cow. The entire train, with the exception of the rear sleeper, was thrown from the track. The cars were piled up and thrown In such man ner that to have secaped with the loss of only one life seems miraculous. The dead man was identified by means of letters found upon him. He boarded the train at Pendleton. The engineer and fireman were, thrown through the cab window and alighted on the loco, motive unhurt. All the passengers were brought to this city by a relief train. It Is now thought that no one was seriously hurt. Chase, the man killed, is supposed to have been a tramp. HURT HIS GOOD NAME.
