Cable Special to THE BEE. 1-Thc London
press Is greatly cicrclscd over Balfour's
speech at Ncwcastlo In answer to Morley.
Columns of editorials are printed pro and
con , the general opinion being that the chief
secretary scored heavily his opponent , The
Globe says that If a stnight , plain speech has
any weight , John Morlcy's political reputa
tion Is lost absolutely and utterly without
the scrablnnco of a chance of recovery. A.
more masterly exposure of Inconsistency ,
feeble recklessness and systematic ! calumny
vas never mado.
Another topic of discussion Is Gen
eral Booth's book"In Uarlivst
England , and tbo Way Out , " which
appeared today. The work contains 300
liases , devoted to the prodigious scheme of
relief of the poverty , Ignorance and vice of
what the author calls the submerged one-
tenth o/ the populatloa. Ho proposes to
found a city colony for the hungry and homeless -
less In the metropolis , who will bo given
work in labor yards and factories , chopping
wood , making mats , sewing1 sacks , etc. In
this connection there will bo a household sal
vage brigade , which will collect enough
broken victuals , old clothes , newspapers , etc. ,
to support the colony , recruited from the city
colony , where members will again use the
London salvage basis of support. Immense
piggeries will be established , fed by refuse
matter. The pigs will supply the bacon for
factories , Oones Cor button works , grease for
soap works , etc. There will bo second liand
clothes and shoo establishments , employing
an army of tailors and cobblers. Each man
will build and own r. house or shanty. There
will bo no public houses. The author anally
proposes to found a foreign colony , recruited
from the other two. A tract of laud will bo
tnlten In South Africa , and the best workers
from the colony sent there , but obliged to
repay the cost of transportation In labor.
0 encml Booth wants 1,000,000 to
put the scheme in operation , and appeals to
the charitable to help him. Papers discuss
the project nt length. The Times Is not en
thusiastic. The Daily Hews says something
of the captivating grandeur and complete
ness of the scheme. .As an Intellectual ef
fort It Is like the day dream of a philanthrop
ist revised by a practical man. The Salva
tion array full in this great attempt , but we
are distinctly of the opinion that itoughl to
be allowed to try to succeed. The Daily
Telegraph says "It is a waste of labor to
waste land. " is Gcndral Booth's watchword.
It nil rends like Moore's Utopia , but the
general's firm faith in the possibility of the
scheme carries tbe i-oader away. It is bet
ter , at all events , to dream of a social
panacea tbun acquiesce in things us they are.

"I am in the most public part of the

Canon Hegarty rejoined :
"This is not a public place. You have no

Tliere Is much com plaint at the treasury
from business men In Nebraska anjadjoinlng
states and ia fact the entire west about the
scarcity oC paper money of lower denomina
tions than fives , and they have in consequcnco
been compellcd to accept the bulky and In
convenient sliver dollars. The fact is that
there Is practically no silver In the treasury
against which silver certificates can be Issued
In small denominations to be exchanged for
legal tender and goli' notes oflargcdenomtna-
tlotis , as last fall up to October 17
the total number of standard silver dollars
coined was * 37t,5lS,4M ) , , ivhlch. f < MO.V,54V4 ) ,

except $101,523 , was represented by silver
certificates Issued against them. . Of these
certificates * ! O9.HHS : : > 3 were in circulation
and $ : ' , { i07,5i2 wcro held as cash In the treas
ury. The demand for theao small notes is
daily Increasing- "will continue to do so
until after the Christmas holidays. There
neve been thus far only about $ . ' 1.000,00 coined
under the new law , nearly nil of vhlcb. huvo
been p.ild out direct from the mints where
they were struck and gone Into immediate
circulation , The new treasury notes
for the purchase of silver bullion
under the neiv law have been issued in de
nominations thus far of teas , one hundreds
and one thousands. The supply of tens Is
now amply sufficient to meet all demands for
the present for the conversion of our new
notes of larger denominations. The notes
are not by any means pretty , nnd a promi
nent treasury oRlcial spoke of them very con
temptuously todiy as "patent medicine
ads. " The ones and nves are promised
by the bureau of engraving and printIng -
Ing on November 4. After that time It is
likely tbat all demands f rem business men
for small notes \vlll bo promptly net. Mean
while thereU nothing available but standard
dollars. > v
A coxrnnisox.
Considerable discussion is now bain ? had
la some portions of the country ontho stump
and in the partisan press as to the compara
tive prices paid for United States bonds by
she treasury department under tie Cleveland
and Harrison administrations , For the pur
pose of securing accurate figures showing
the maximum and minimum prices paidunder
the two administrations , your correspondent
made an examination of the redemption looks
of the departnient this afternoon. Under
the Cleveland administration the
prices paid for the bonds were :
I'our per cents-September , 1SS7 , lowest ,
f 1.134Spptomber ; , 18S3highest , Sl.SO ; 4 > { per
cents-Juno , 1SSS , lowest , 10i5.92-February ; ,
183t , highest , Sl.011 % . Under the Harrison
administration : Four per cents April O ,
1SS9 , highest , SI.59 ; July , 1SW , lowest , 11.21 ;
4 per cents , March 5 , 18S9 , highest. 11.03 ;
July , IS'JO , lowest , * l.03Jjf. It will thus bo
seen that while the redemption of bonds
under the present administration haa been
unprecedontcdly heavy the prices paid have
been lower than ( or many years.

Hon. E. 0. Leech , director of the mint , has

miles In the mining regions of thogreatnorth-
wait , especially Montana , aad says the pros
pects for silver mlalngand the current pro
ductions of the nines arc constantly increas
ing nnd that there is great activity in mining
Interests , He believes that the recent laws
imposing nduty on foreign silver hearing
lead ere will give lead interests a great im
petus , tlio price having already been in
creased from ! J cents u pound to O cents ,
while silver started in thisadmlnlstatlon at

TIIOSB AI.UOEDCEIfSCS FRAUD ? .
John Hyde , -who is well known In Omaha ,
and who is chief of the supervisors' division
of the census office , was asked by THE B RE
correspondent today if It could bo possible to
perpetrate the frauds alleged in
"
tho" population census for ttio purpose
of giving either party advantage
In the congressional reapportintrrient.
"Absolutely impossible , " said ha , "If for
no other reason than because the padding
would have to badonoon false returns of the
supervisors or enumerators , nnd we could
not Induce them to do the work , as such a
crime is punishable by imprisonment in the
penitentiary Uesldes , It vould bo easy for
anyone to trace a fraud in the matter ot pop
ulation in any district or state largo enouirh
to give material advantage to a party , The
padding would huvo to be done ef
fectually or it would bo of no
account , nnO these who are di
rectly injured by it "would not
leave a stone unturned to show thowork.
The result would bo disastrous to any party ,
All of this talk about frauds in the census
ofllco is simply for temporary effect. The
democrats are hard pressed for issues and
thoybelievotbey can make sorao capital for
the day , but all intelligent persons' will at
once brand it as a campaign lie , for the im
practicability of It Is on its face. "

as to the methods of carrying outtliosugur
bounty provisions of the tariff bill. He is
consulting all sources of information and
states very frankly that ho will bo
grateful to anyone who will suggest some
method which the internal revenue
department can apply in the awarding ol
.counties. It has been suggested that every
farmer should send to Washington or some
other station to bo selected In the sugar beet
raisins ? countries samples of thosugarto bo
tested and a statement of the
amount raised , But these llttlo tests
will be impracticable , and ho docs
not see any other remedy but to devise some
means bywhlch the agents of the bureau
will bo able to travel from farm to farm and
test the sugar on the spot , and thereupon
award the amount of bounty. The internal
revenue bureau has called on the state de
partment for Information from our consuls
In the sugar raising countries abroad , where
bounties are awarded , for the methods pur
sued In avardiiig bounties.

\VisniMiiOK , Oct. 30. The comptroller of
the currency today authorized the Merchants
National bank of Burlington , la , to extend
Its corporate
Mlniitesof the Debates In the Unvniu
Cliniubcr ol'Commerce.
\VABHIXOTON , Oct. 20. The tate depart
ment has received a copy of the minutes , of
the debate which recently took place la the
chamber of commerce at Havana with refer
ence to the McKlnlcy bill nail the question of
reciprocity. 'Iho statement , which was
transmitted to the Spanish minister of tbo
colonies , was nccora ranted by n letter from
the president Of the chamber , which
shows Iho existence of a strong
sentiment favoraolo" to reciprocal rela
tions with tno United States. The
statement was sent ; to the minister In
response to a message from him asking sug
gestions as to any modifications desired In
the Cuba tariff , The Writer says in part tbnt
the now Cuban tariff proposed by Spain nuut
be pretreded by a repeal of the act of 1S93
because that act is an insuperable obstacle to
the development of the foreign commcrco of
Cuba , which Is Indcspenslble to the cultiva
tion of Its products. It la the opinion of all
Cubans , the writer says , Hint the srcatest
market for Cuban goods , is the nation whoso
porls lie at its very door , The chamber of
commerce , they nay , docs not hesitate to
affirm tbat the United States are to bo the
regulators of the commercial tnarkot , just as
England Is of the money market. The law
makers of ttio United. States , they further
say , know perfectly well that the people
whom tliey represent hav an abundance of
the necessaries of Ijfe. They know that by
imposing heavy duties upon the manufactured
goods of Europe tboy favcr tha development
of their own Industries , compel the well-to-do
classes to pay Indirect taxes and have
no cause to fear European reprisals because
such reprisals would havoto apply to cere
als , ment. petroleum , 'oto.which , are the
very articles those nations absolutely require.
The United States caroJ > ut llttlo for rccproc-
ity withEuroDC , for they know that Europe
has need of them , nnd they will grant It or
refuse Itas may suit their own Interest ! .
Thoycaroa great deal , , , however , for recip
rocity1 with the nations ol America. Atten
tion Is called to the fact that Brazil Isptepnr-
ing to secure a market in the United
States for its tupar. The manner
in which Drazil wrested.from Cuba the palm
of b-'ing the chief coffee , producer Is alluded
to and a warning is sounded that the sa.no
thing may happen with regard to sugar.
The letter closes -\vltb an expression of iho
hope that the gravity of these economical
problems in the Antilles vrlll receive the at
tention they deserve , asd , .with an appro-
henslon well founded , the writers think that
Cuban productions , especially sugar , may bo
unable to compete ia tno North American
market with that of the other sugar produc
ing countries. \

The hard fighting ofSmlth in the early

Said Truffle Manager Hauley ; "Tho new
line ia badly needed by us to connect with the
St. Louis & ? an Francisco. It is the long
line , but oaly by thirty-four miles , which
will make little or no difference on traflle be
tween Chicago ind St. Louis nnd none on
tranic originating on the St. Louis A San

Said I'assengerandTmfflcMaiiager 'Unite :
" \\'e \ vill hare as complete and perfect a pas

time now made by our competi

If wo cannot start our trains from Chicago

the St , Louis & ; San Francisco , the time of
the latter will bo changed. "
The now line -will cut a largo flgriro on
south western business. Its competitors con
cede that It will take its shave of the business
on oven terms. Jn connection with the St.
Louis & San Francisco , It will also bo called
upon to join the southwestern poolon account
of Its mllcago southwest of St. Louis , its

also demand the same share as from south

This claim the Alton will not allow.

pcnsesatid maintaining rates by extending
tlio division of-traflio arrangement to all

favorably. Slncothe formation of the South
western pool theie has not been a whisper of
cut rates , and ou account of the divisions or-
dcredcachof thonlne lines ca.uk ! have en
tirely dispensed with solicitors in tne terri
tory affected. It Is now argued that
all the Western freight , association lines have
joined d lumber and coal pool aad that all
trafliccould as well be included In the ar
rangement. The only objector to the arrange
ment la the Southwestern was the North
western , but now that it has Joined the
lumber and coal pool It cannot rcfuso to Join
on account of alleged Illegality. Chairmen

The average of half a dozen conservative

long thr.e , suffering from rheumatism and
other com pi units , but it is thought that
tliiancial trouble was the chief cause of
Mullette's act.

for many vears has been Mulletto's
family physician , made a statement
of Iho clrcu instances of the shootlnc sub

WAS called to tno house toso Mrs. Mulletto ,
who was slightly ludlsKtscd. | After
pix'scrlbing for Mrsi. Milllette the doctor
took his leave and went to Ids oftlcc. Just
across iho street. He had been there but a
short time when their son , Dr. Mill-
lette , caino running over and asked
him to come to tl'o house Immediately. Ho
hurried Inclc In response to the summons ami
found Mulletto lying across the bodlnhii
sleeping npartment and partially disrobed.
Ho vas unconscious and bleeding
profusely , The doctor made n luisty exai ) >
inatlon and found Unit the blood came fro'.i a
wound about two inches al > eve the ilgh . car.
The dying man guvo three or four . asns
and expired within seven minutes
after the wound had been inflicted.Vbcn
the doctor ilrst cntireil the room he found
Mrs. Mvlletto lying by the side of the body
of her vounded husband , Keeping
bitterly.ltti her arms thrown
around his neck. The doctor moved her
gently from the room and thengavehis atten
tion to her husband Later In the evening
the coroner was summoned and , after an ex
amination of the body , gave n verdict of
death from suleido , due to melancholia.
Jlr. Mulletto was fifty-six years old and
very well known. Ho designed many of the
public ) buildings that have been eroded
Iii different rltie * , among them being
the New York postofllce and the Imposing
