KOHB, Kee SILVER IN IN CONVENTION VoInmiDiins Report From tiie Com miltce on Resolntioos. DENOUNCING THE GOLD PEES3 General Disaster I'redirtert Should the Sherman I.iwin Itepealed An Appeal to the rcnple. , Associated Press. Denver, Col., July 12. The Interest In the silver convention has not abated from yesterday, and when called to or der this morning standing room was not to be had. After the appointment of the delegates to the St. Louis ami Chicago conventions, and to the "gold bug" gathering In St. Paul, the com mittee on resolutions presented a. re port which was unanimously adopted. It was addressed to the people of the United States and says: "The people of Calorado are standing in the gloom of Impending disaster, and are repre sentlngithe, people ofl Montalna, IdaKoj Wyoming, Nevada, Sauth Dakota Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. With reverence for the constitution and wltll unswerving loyalty to the general government was asked for your calm and candid consideration of the fol lowing facts before you give your ap proval to the destruction of silver and money and to the final establishment In this counrty of a single gold stand ard of values, and thus at one stroke change all our debts to gold debts, and Inaugurate a never ending rise In gold and a continued corresponding fall In the price of every commodity. Con gress Is called to meet In extra session on August seventh. Proceeding th ecall the class which has struggled for twerr ty years to overthrow the bimetallic money standard, prescribed by the con stltutlon, Inaugurated a panic which they Untruthfully charged to the ex Istlng silver law, Ignoring the fact that there was $300,000,000 outstanding legUl tender nates commonly called greeu backs, which were equally available with the treasury notes Issued In pay ment for silver, to draw gold from the treasury; that the' balance of our for eig-n trade ttuVed agamjat us, feu tiering a settlement abroad with Amer lean gold a necessity, and the great bankers of Europe purchasing gold with which to change the money stand .ard of Australia and fill the treasury vaults of other monarchlal countrles The evident purpose was to create? a prejudice against what Is "known as the silver purchasing act, and under pressure secure its repeal. The succes of this scheme Is only pratlal. Presl dentlal patronage, supplementing false and Incendiary remarks by the. gold press, aggravated by dally circular as saults upon the law by eastern money brokers sent to every commercial body and banking establlshmeut iu the country, possibly won. over the house of representatives to it, but even the president admitted lni the senate that there was a staunch majority against It. Suddenly the news flashed beneath the ocean that free coinage in India was suspended, and the market price of silver had fallen within forty enght hours fully twenty cents an ounce. The Sherman law was nat the work of the silver producing states; tl was forced upon the country against their will. Their constant bemand, has been that of the agricultural states west and south, and the working masses of the whole country. They had not sought to impose upon the country somenew financial nostrum, and' asked simply the restoration of the coinage laws as they were from the first year of the fedeal constitution until the furtive re peal of 1873. The Sherman law, was the trick by which that restoration was defeated. The charge that the bimetal lists demand that sixty cents, be made a dollar 13 a lie. It is. a trick of the single standard conspirators that .les send the value of silver. What blmet alllsts do ask, and all they ask is a law rebulatlng coinage as It was for 75 years, and the country's greatest glory shall be restored without tly id dltlon or expunging, of a syllable. The blmetalliKts wilt cheerfully submit to any legislation experience will suggest, as necessary to make every dollar of the United States equal in l&trlnslj value to every other dollar bearing lta stamp. FROM CTRUS W. FIELD, JR. 8 East 56th Street. New York. May 8h. 1893. Several times this winter I have suf fered from severe colds on my lungs. Kach. time I have applied Allcock's Porus Planters, and in every Instance I have been quickly relieved by apply ing one across my chest and one on my back. My friends, through my advice, have tried the experiment and also found it most successful. I feci that I can recommend them most highly to any one who mav se fit to try them. CTRUS W. FIELD, JR. AGAIN LIBELED. Portland, Or., July 12. An additional libel was filed upon the steamer Hay tlan Republic today by the federal au thorities. The indictment contains five counts, all referring to the smuggling of opium. In July 1892, the steamer Is accused of smuggling In 400 pounds; In August, 800; in September, 1,400; In January, 1893, 1,000; and in February, 900, making a total of 4,500 pounds since July-,, 1892. . No Grounds For Alarm. The following communication -will demonstrate to the satisfaction of the public that there is no cause for alarm on Account of the disagreeable odor of the; water in this city -for some time past: The Honorable Water Commission Gentlemen: Having been consulted by1 many of our citizens in regard to the cause "fjf the present unsatisfactory condition of the city water, I have taken tho liber ty of thus communicating with your honorable body in regard to the mat ter. ', I- have Investigated as far as possible the condition of the reservoirs,- the spring emptying into the small .reser voir, as well aa the water from the main pip before it empties Into the larger reservoir. From my investigation I am satisfied that at present at least the1 spring water is pure and contains nothing deleterious to the health or in the! least disagreeable to the taste, and certainly has nothing to do with the present bad condition of the city wa ter. The water from the main before It reaches the reservoir is apparently pure although there Is in it more or less vegetable matter, which, however, does not injure the water, for drinking purposes or affect the taste of it to more than the slightest extent. ' The smaller reservoir is not in a first class condition- -fend -certainly.- needs- clean ing and repairing but It has nothing tq do with the present bad condition of the water. The whole trouble Is un doubtedly In the main reservo:r, which I am informed has been thoroughly cleaned less than a month ago, and therefore nothing can be wrong with the reservoir Itself. The cause of the bad condition of the water in this res ervoir is, then, undoubtedly due to the process of decomposition of vegetable and organic matter (always (present In the water,) which is constantly taking place. In running water such as rivers, springs, and lakes, (with an outlet) decomposition- takes place very slowly, but In standing1 water in-warm weath er, whether the sun's rays reach it or notj the process goes on more rapllly. Practically, the water In the reser voir is still water. Only a small portion of the entire quantity Is drawn off in the day and a like quantity Is added, thus furnishing a small amount of new vegetable1 matter every day, and thereby, aa long as the water Is warm, making the process of decomposition practically a continuous one. Of course the process of decomposi tion is in reality one of putrifactlon, but until the process Is complete after It has once begun, the water Is not fit to drink. Sailors can tell you how the water in tanks on a vessel often goes through a process which they call rotting. This Is of course the process of decomposition taking place In the vegetable or other organic matter pres ent Jn the water. After the process of decomposition . has ceased, owing to there Tbelngi no more material to de compose, the gases formed In the pro cess float away, the organic matter settles to the bottom and the water is then pure and sweet. This process is constantly taking place in the reser voir, and If .no fresh water was ad mitted for two weeks, the water there now would become tasteless and pure. But under your present management I can not but think you are every day adding a new supply of fuel. Covering the reservoir would retard this process of. decomposition, but not prevent It. The only way to prevent It Is to keep changing the water every day, and as near as - practicable make It running water. . I arm satisfied that beyond the fact of the water being disagreeable in its present condition, there is no danger of causing any serious sickness such as typhoid fever, as has been suggested, for thus disease Is not caused by drink ing water which has simply a bad odor or taste, but It must contain the special germs which cause this disease, and such' germs do not originate spon taneously, but must have found their way into the water from somewhere outside the stream, or from cess pools, eta, and what Is most Import" ant Is that water which is clear and pure looking with a pleasant, agreeable taste Is Just as apt to contain the germs of disease as that which Is disagreeable enough to turn the stomach. Respect fully yours, J. A. FULTON. SensiM Letter on tns Subject rroinau Authoritative Source. 0PEBATI0N8 WIU BE RESUMED Provided Tbero Is No Material Decline In the Present Price-No Smlnng Alarm Felt. Associated Press. New York, July 12. The president of a prominent down-town bank received the followlg letter today from the head of a leading mercantile house In Den ver, whkii lias dealings throughout the silver states: In regard to silver mining in this state, we candidly believe the present situation vety much exaggerated, and as soon as there is any prospect of ob taining a definite price for Bllver, a great many of our mines will be oper ated on as large a scale as formerly." This we say on the supposition that the present price of silver, say 75 cents per ounce, is a reasonable price, as silver coats very nearly this figure to pro duce. If the price of Bllver should de cline materially below 75 cents per ounce, there would undoubtedly be a curtailment of the production in this state, but we believe as a rule that merchants will be able to pay their accounts In full, and the loss to Job bers at any point In this state ought to average a very low percentage. The talk and threats Indulged in by a few rabid silverltes Is In our opinion taken too seriously In the East, as the parties who do most of this talking have no credit or standing at home." THE CHICAGO FIRE. Continuing the Search for the Bodies of "the Victims. . . Chicago, July 12. The search in the ruins of the cold storage warehouse at the World's Fair for "more bodies was continued today, but will probably not be completed before the end of the week. The meats and vegetables In the warehouse are already beginning to taint, and the odor Is becoming ex tremely disagreeable. Men find It diffi cult to work steadily at. the ruins. It Is now believed that Blenhubcri a cap italist of Marquette, Mich., is among the victims of the fire trap. Louts J. Frank, a fireman who jumped from the tower, died this morning. A PUGILIST INSANE.

NEW YORK STOCKS, t New York,July 12. Stocks opened with enormous business, and were weak, with losses of Mi 2 per cent. The street Is flooded with unfavorable ru mors. When it was found the rumors could not be verified a more hopeful feeling developed and a sharp rally en sued. At noon money on call was stringent at 10 20. After 11 sloe. weakened again. At noon tho market was feverlBh. One of the chief Items contributing to the excitement and weakness was the fact that a well-known trader was forced to throw over some 40,000 shares of high-priced Vanderbllts, and the bears took advantage of the fact t pound the market. The general opin ion Is that there Is nothing in the sit uation to warrant yesterday's and to day's breaks. On the contrary, among the banks and in financial circles, a better state of affairs Is reported. LONDON STOCKS FLAT. London, July 12. Stocks are flat on there is considerable excitement.
