A Mil rod Thins Chile.
May be Itloodnhed In South Carolina.
U. S. Circuit Judge Goff's recent
South Carolina decision that tho ballot
must be free and open to all citizens
whether black or white has created a
great furore among the anti-Negro
residents of that state. Gov. Evans
has issued a proclamation in which he
denounces. Judge Golf as a disgrace to
the judicial ermine and declares that
the Palmetto stato shall never come
under Negro domination, even if a re
course to arms is necessary to prevent
it. "The march of progress is about
to be stopped; tho black pall of Negro
domination hovers over us; we must
meet the issue like South Carolinians.
There are only two Hags, the white
and tho black. Under which will you
enlist? The one, tho white, peaceful
Hag of Anglo-Saxon civilization and
progress, or tho other, tho black Hag
of the debased and ignorant African

ing to marshal the Negroes in order to
gain political power?"
Low Water Canting Trouble to Shippers.
The low stage of water in the lakes
is being felt more and moro every day,
and it is cutting quite a figure in the
lake freight market. Eastern shippers
who figured on having their ore pretty
closely covered by lako freight con
tracts are in the market for tonnage
aud aro anxious to cover more ore for
the season for 80 cents. Owners who
have large blocks of ore to carry have
chartered quite a few moro boats re
cently in order to keep even. There
is a good demand for wild boats to
load at all the shipping ports, and ves
seltnen are hopeful of udvancing the
rate from tho head of Lake Superior.
If vesselmen are able to advancra rates
while most of the lleet is going up
light it is quite a safe prediction that
rates will be advanced materially as
soon as the miners' strike in Ohio and
Pennsylvania is settled and a heavy
movement of coal is started.
Trouble Over Those Seal Again.
Washington: An ugly crisis has been
reached iu tho negotiations between
the I'nited States ami Great llritain
looking to the adoption of uniform
regulations for the government of the
seal fisheries this season. The liritish
government positively refuses to re
enact the regulations of last year. The
attitude of the J5ritis.li is viewed with
much dissatisfaction at the stato de
partment, where it is regarded as an
evidence of unwarrantable concession
to the Canadian pelagic sealers. It is
also held that the effect ol this action
is to practically nullify all measures
of protection for the seals that was
considered by the Paris arbitration,
and it would not be surprising if this
course is persisted in, that it resulted
in a declaration by the United States
of the abrogation of the treaty.
California Silver Men Kick.
Tho visit to California of Gen. A. J.
Warner, of Ohio, head of tho American
bimetallic party, and Congressman
Joseph C. Sibley, of Pennsylvania,
named by that organization for presi
dent in ls9'), has apparently been pro
ductive of bad results to silver. The
effect is tho flat secession of the Cali
fornia silver league from Gen. War
ners national organization. The
trouble was caused by the attempt of
Gen. Warner and several congressmen
enthusiastic for the remonetization of
silver to make Sibley tho presidential
candidate of the white metal party in
the next campaign.
Chile Itoldly Tackles Illnietallistn.
Washington: Chile's currency con

the restoration of the nionarchial form
of government He says there never
will be harmony until tho monarchy is
restored and Princess Kaiulani placed
upon the throne. The greatest fear of
the Hawaiian government is Japan
nnd they do not scruple to say so.
Another danger to the government is
in themselves. The democracy, or
American league, is taking unibrage
nt the new importation of Chinese.
The financial condition is also one of
tho things that will help to bring on a
crisis. The loj-alty of the natives to
monarchy was never as strong us now.

only hope of permanent peace on the
islands will bo realized in placing

which the former monarchy proposed
that she should some day have.
