In the organization favored the senate

have been sending out has been in the
line of bolstering up that ineaBure.
President Cleveland's friends have in
sisted on making the president's letter

coming tariff campaign. The first

Congressman Dynura is a mombsr of
the congressional committee, lie was
also a member of the wnys and means
committee, and as such stood out
against the Wilson bill and in favor of
the senate tariff bill. By tbia attltudo
he incurrsd the displeasure of the
president and Chairman Wilson, and
their political following, but he won
the friendship of Senators Qorman and

CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE PARTIAL
The complaint is being made among
some of the Indiana Democrats that
the campaign committee is giving
more attention to Mr. Bynum'a dis
trict than to the other Democratio
fights now waging in the Hooiiier state.
The campaign committee makes no

The Influence of the Democratio cam

extended in an equal measure to all
Democratio candidates for congress
this year regardless of their affiliations
on the coinage or tariff questions. But
despite this, the charge is being freely
made that it is n part of the polloy of
Senator Gorman und his compatriots in
the tariff fight to look after their own
friends in the congressional elections
this fall and leave the administration
favorites to bustle for themselves.

NDER date of Aug. 81, the fol

setting aside the order for martial law
in the cities and villages of Ihe Atlantie

CabrzHS and Madriz, committed an
other outrage npon Americans. The

on the evening of July 0, with ssveral
Mosquito and Jainuica negroes, was
seized and brought to anchor before
the Nicaraguan government building.
Minister Madriz was given orders to

Under the new arrangements pro
posed by Nicaragnaus, unless a man is
a property-holder, or has tbe sum of
500 sols, he will not be allowed to vote.
Thus the government of Blnefields and
the entire territory will be controlled

a majority of these fow voters will be

band, who is one of tbe Americans con
find at Managua, says that every wunt
of the prisoners is abundantly supplied
by the government, their allowances of
eatables and drinkables being particu
larly plentiful. This kind of treat
ment on tbe part of the Nicaraguan
officials is looked npon us a nine days'
wonder by those who are familiar with
the hardship to which they are wont
to subject their prisoners.

assuring. Niw York, Sept. 7. R. G. Dan &
Co. 's Weekly Review of Trale will say
tomorrow: The business outlook is
much like an April day, with alternate
clouds and sunshine. In some branohes
strong improvement still continues,
while in others trade is diminishing.
In the adjustment to new conditions
such oonilioting signs are to be ex
peoted, and tbe more because the de
ferred business which had awaited a
settlement was by no means evenly
distributed. For some time to come,
it is likely, conditions in different
trades, and even in different minor
branches of tbe same trade, may vary
The change of dnties has brought the
government during the week $4,243,
509 in enstoms, which is less than
many expeoted, and reoelpts are rapidly
declining, while internal revenue has
dropped off to $3,147,582, of whieh more
than halt was actually received tbe
previous week. But by rescinding its
ordor regarding deposits of gold here
against notes delivered at interior
points, the treasury has gained more
gold in a few days than by the increase
in enstom receipts.
The iron manufacture has materially
increased its output sinos the ooke
troubles ended, but with the result
that pig iron Is weakor, bessemor being
$11. 60 at Pittsburg. At all eastern and
central markets the demand for fin
ished products is somewhat disappoint
ing and prices gradually tend down
ward. The woolen manufacture, in
which deferred business night nat
urally have been larger than in others,
does . not inorease the working fore,
and after two or three active weeks the
business has slackened with about
three-quarters of the niual transactions
for the season.
Failures in Aagnst aggregated lia
bilities of $10,139,477, of which $3,173,
2110 wore in manufacturing aud $5,078,
153 in trading oonoerns. During tbe
week the failures were 251 ia the
United States against 323 last year,
and 47 in Canada against 25 last year.
