Washington, August H The bullion value of the American silver dollars, ac cording to ytsterdiy' market price of silver, is Just CS cents." said Mr. Pres ton, the director of the mint, today. "This makes the commercial ratio be tween silver and gold 3 6 to !, instead of 16 to 1, ' continued Mr. Preston. "In ordi r to make our silver dollar equnl to a. gold dollar at this rate. It would have to contain KA fine grains of silver. If tho alloy were added the total would bt K4 grains." "How do you account for the recent decline In silver." Mr. Preston w is asked. "Simply tin lack of demand for k. 1 see no futur.. for silver whatever. Yesterday's market quotations made It .V. cents on ounce. It Is my honest opinion that within six months silver will fall to ) cents an ounce. Thrre is no demand for It anywhere. The output of gold Is steadily Increasing. I think that the world's product for this yi-jr will be about $;tO.0uu. The United States will contribute about KSO.Ot'O.OW to the supply. "Here comps the Klondyke now with still further additions to the gold supply of the world. The extent of the Klon dyke output Is problematical, depending I largely upon climatic conditions." SPREADING IX ENGLAND. lamdon Agents In New York to Buy Gold Properties. New York, Augitst 6. The Tribune says: the Klondyke discoveries have start that the Klondyke discoveries have start- id in this country has apiiu-ently spread to England. For some time agents rep resenting several syndicates of London j capitalists have been In this city, en deavoring to acquire gold mines of prov ed value for exploitation On the British markets. The latest deal reported In this city Is the sale by the Gold Creek Min ing Company, of Nevada, of Its property to a British syndicate for $lj.KMm. The original capital stock of tho company was tWi'.iXX). Tho grwiter part of the stock Is held by officers of tho company. who arc Major Joseph L. Robertson, president: George L. Hutchlnso.i. vlce- presidnt; Frances Dickson, secretary: William H. V. Tauldlng, S. L. Steele. Henry J. Moyham, directors. Colonel B. S. Bush, formerly chief tn- gineer and constructor of the Croton aqueiluct, Is the engineer of the company. Ho estimates that over $43,000,000 In gold Is contained In the placer, which con tains &XI.000 acres In Elko county, along the basks of Gold creek. Of the above- named ofllcers, only M.ssrs. Hutchinson and Dickson are In town. Both refused to give any explicit Information regarding the reported sale. Mr. Dickson admitted. howwer, that negotiations were In prog ress with an English syndlcata and would probably bo completed In a short while. Mr. Hutchinson would only say that nny statement that t the Gold creek mines had been sold was premature. SILVER IN A BAD WAY. Still Dropping and Will Probably Close . Some of the Colorado Mines. Denver, August 6. The effect of the decline In silver to B54 cents per ounce and the probable further fall to as low as 60 cents, which seems to be conceded by those in the best position to ujdge.

It is believed that an agreement will I signed this week and that the war will end. Many public! nu-etfings to ur?e peace have been held. The Herald's corresKndent In Ascen sion, Paraguay, telegraphs that the min ister of the Interior there has sent nolo to the authorlies declaring that peace with Bolivia Is assured, as the questions In dispute arising out of the boundary trouble have been settled. DON'T LIKE THE GOVERNOR. Springfield, 111., August 6. At today's session of the State Miners' Convention a resolution to Invite Governor Tanner to address the coventlon brought forth much talk unfavorable to the governor. State Secretary Ryan and Vice-President Hunter emphatically refused to act on the committee to wait on Governor Tan ner. The governor was Invited, however, to deliver the address. He said he was In sympathy with the miners and believed they would win the strike if they carried It on In a law-abiding way. as they have been doing. The governor put himself on record as willing to do all In his power to assist 1 a satisfactory settle ment. A SERIOUS CHARGE. Little Rock, Ark., August 6.

Spardllng, both well known men living near that place, on the charge of murdering Lem Harrison and George Tucker, whose bodies were found near Sellgman a few days ago. There is strong evidence that Sweetln and Spard llng killed the two men for the purpose of robbery. " SILVER MARKET DEMORALIZED The Unprecedented Drop In London Purther Declining. EVEN CHINA STOPS BUYING Attempted Liijaidatin by Holders supposed to Be tbe Caisc of Its Great Veaksess, Xw York. August 6. Cable dispatches from London yester'lay reported a fur. ther weakness In the stiver market there. The local market was sympathetically aflecUd, .with quotation declining to new low record figures. Th best ad vices from London report tbs pries of j bar silver there as approximating Kjd j an ounce. Tbe parity of the commercial ibar silver on the basis of this quotation I was K4c an ounce, but owing to tha existence of a moderate short Interest In the market, which was covering at the decline, the rate for actual business . here was about SSc Nominally govern j ment assay bars were quotable at &,o in ounce, which made th value of the silver In a standard silver dollar 4t71 cents. j The buying price of bullion dealers for j Mexican dollars was 42Hc each, and for Peruvian sols and Chilean pesos, SSMiC I The weakness of the silver market I haiing very disturbing efTect upon ex. I change operations with countries that are on a silver basis. In Mexico gold .has advanced to an exceedingly high j premium. j An indication of the demoralized con jCttion of the silver market In London jis afforded by the difficulty that local bullion dealers had to obtain quotations j from abroad. A cable dispatch recetved .by one firm read: "No market. Name price at which I you will sell." j The decline in silver Is also having a very disturbing effect upon the holders , of silver mining certificates. Some of the Western silver mines are reported I to be operating at an actual loss on the j basis of present quotations, and It is expected they will be forced to shut down. London dispatches ascribe the great weakness In silver to liquidation by many holders of the metal Xo such de cline has been witnessed since June. 1SSJ. The Indian mints were closed to a free silver coinage on June 26 of that year. On tho news sliver bullion fell In London from STd per ounce to a price below )d, but It rallied sharply later. A cable from London says: "The details cf the gold movement for the week are about 34,000 Imported from Australia: 30,000 from the Cape and silver has practically ceased entirely. 5i0.000 already dispatched from Sydney to San Fronclsco, further large ship ments are being arranged. Silver Is demoralized. The demand of China for silver has practically oeal entirely. Exchange at Shanghai has fallen to a point less than 3 per cent below the sliver Import point, and yet the Chinese will not take silver. hTis closes a great channel for sliver. India Is still In the market for silver in gradually decreas ing amounts, but there the mints are closed." NOT GOULD'S WIDOW. New York. August 6. Melville O.
