THE SOBANTON TRIBUOT! SATTJKDAT " MOBNDTO, FEBRUARY 9,' 1896;
MR. CLEVELAND MESSAGE
Arrangements fur the Issue of 30
Ycar Bonds Announced.
TO STRENGTHEN THE RESERVE
The Bonds Will Boar Interest at the Rata
of Fonr Per Cent. Per Annum.
Details for Floating tbo
By the United Press.
Washington, Feb. 8. Mr. Springer,
(Dem., III.), stated on the floor of tho
house, at noon today, that the presi
dent would today send to congress a
message stating his purpose to sell ad
ditional bonds to replenish the gold re
serve, and outlining his future finan
Tbo President's Message.
The president sent the following mes
sage to congress at noon today:
To the Congress of tho United States:
Since my recent communication to the
congress calling attention to our linaneia
conUtlon,u.ndsuK(,rest!iiK legislation which
I deemed essential tq our national welfare
und credit, tho anxiety and apprehension
then existing in business circles have con
tinued. As a precaution, therefore, against the
failure of timely legislative aid through
congressional action, cautious prepara
tions have been pending to employ to the
best possible advantage, in default of bet
ter means, such executive authority as
may without additional legislation, bo ex
ercised for tho purpose of reinforcing and
maintaining in our treasury un adequate
und safo gold reserve.
Executive Action Token.
In the judgment of those especially
charged with this responsibility the situa
tion is so critical and the legislation is so
unpromising with the omission thus far
on the part of the congress to benellulally
enlarge the powers of the secretary of the
treasury in the premises as to enjoin Im
mediate executive action with tha facili
ties now at hand.
Therefore, in pursuance of section 3,700
of the revised statutes, tho details of an
derangement have this day been con
cluded with parties abundantly able to
fulfill their undertaking whereby bonds of
the V'nited States authorized under the
act of July 14, 1875, payable In coin thirty
years after their date with interest at the
rate of 4 percent, per annum to the amount
of a Httlo less than $0:2.400,000 be issued for
purchase of gold coin amounting to a sum
slightly In excess of Jffi.OOO.OiM, to be deliv
ered to the treasury of the United States,
which sum, added to the gold now In our
reserve will so restore such reserve as
to make our amount $100,000,000. Such a
premium will be allowed the government
upon the bonds as to fix the rate of Inter
est upon the amount of gold realized at
Jt-i per cent, per annum. At least one
half of the gold to he obtained Is to be sup
plied from abroad, which is a very import
ant and favorable feature of the transac
tion. The privilege is especially reserved
to tho government to substitute at par
within ten days from this date In lieu of
the 4 per ctn. bonds, other bonds In terms
payaMo In gold and bearing only 3 per
cent, interest if the issue of tho same
ehould In the meantime be authorized by
the congress. The arrangement thus com
pleted, which after careful inquiry ap
pears in present circumstances nnd con
sidering all tho objects desired, to be th!
best attainable, develops such a difference
In tho estimation of investors between
bonds made payable in gold und those spe
clllcally made payable In gold In favor of
the latter as Is represented by three
fourth of a cent In annual Interest. The
agreement just concluded the annual sav
ing In Interest to the government If 3 per
cent, gold bonds should be'substltuted for
4 per cent, coin bonds under the privilege
reserved would be $.719,159, amounting in
thirty years, or at the maturity of the
coin bonds, to $16,174,770.
Believes Gold Reserve will Stand Intact.
Of course there never should be a doubt
In any quarter ns to the redemption in
gold of the bonds of the government which
are made payable in coin. Therefore, the
discrimination In the judgment of In
vestors between our bond obligations pay
able in gold is very significant. It Is hard
ly necessary to suggest that whatever
may be our views on tho subject, tho sen
timents or preferences of those with whom
we must negotiate in disposing of our
bonds for gold, are not subject to our dic
tation. I havo only to add that In my opinion the
thransactlons herein detailed for tho in
formation of the congress promise better
results than the effort previously made In
tho direction of effectively adding to our
gold reserve through the sale of bonds,
nnd I believe It will tend, as far as such
notion can In present circumstances, to
meet the determination expressed In tho
law repealing tho silver purchasing clause
of the act of July 14, 1890, and that In the
language of such repealing art the ar
rangement will aid our efforts to "Insure
the mnlritenanco of the parity of In val'.ie
of tho coins of the two metal and tho
pqual power of every dollar at all times in
the markts in the payment of debts.

LARGEST LAKE CRAFT.
A Monster Bout Is Ordered by Eastern
By the United Tress.
Chlcngo, Feb. 8. The contract for the
Inrgest tow barge ever constructed on
tho lakes. If not In the world, has been
taken by the Chicago Shipbuilding
company. The boat will be built for
pastern capitalists, whose names as yet
liave not been divulged. It will bo o.r.2
feet keel, 365 feet over all, 44 feet beam,
nnd 26 feet depth of hold. On tho pres
ent draft of fourteen nnd one-half feet
of water In the locks at Sault Ste.
Maria the new boat will carry 4.500
tons. On the eighteen feet of water.
Beethoven, Bismarck, Wellington,
jKtogs and Queens innumerable, nearly
ell the minds that have changed the
course of affairs in the world for cen
turies have been to Carlsbad for bodily
laid. Not everybody can go even in
ithesc times of fast travel, but every
liody can have the benefits of Carlsbad
at a small cost at home in the Carls
bad Sprudcl Water, or the Carlsbad
Sprudel Salt, which is evaporated from
the Sprudcl Spring.
The genuine Carlsbad Sprudcl is a
natural remedy which is always effect
live in all disorders of the stomach,
iliver and kidneys; for habitual consti
pation, gouty and rheumatic affections
it la without equal. Be sure to obtain
the genuine article, which has the seal
of the city of Carlsbad, and the signa
ture, "Eisner & Mcndoteon Co., Sole
Agents, New York," on rcry bottle.
when the 20-foot channel between the
great lakes shall have been completed.
It will carry easily 6,000 tons.
The vessel will have no spars at
all for use of canvas, and will be towed
exclusively. It will be of the best steel
construction throughout. .The largest
schooner or tow barge now, afloat on
the lakes carries less than 2,000 tons,
so that the boat for which the contract
was closed will be double the capacity
of existing schooners or barges.
SCHOOL OF IIYNOTISM.
Missouri "Psychical School" Brought to
By the United Press.
St. Joseph, Mo., Feb. 8. The psychi
cal society of this city, organized for
the purpose of .teaching hypnotism, has
been brought to tho notice of the police
by the complaint of Mrs. Ella Churchill,
whose son has been one of the most
promising students of the institution.
Sirs. Churchill alleges that her son,
after having been hypnotized a number
of times at the meetings of the society,
is losing his mind as a result.
Bickle & Co.; operators of the Bell
niure colliery near Mt. Carmel, have
announced a reduction of wages to con
form with the new basis at the Coal
and Iron company's mines.
Another coal operators' combine has
been formed among the small Hocking
Valley operators. The npw corporation
has a capital stock of $100,000. and will
be known as the Ohio Central Fuel com
pany. Willces-Barre Record: Reese Brooks,
of Scrantun, Is getting to be one of the
biggest burons in the trade. He takes
big chances because he has lots of
nerve, and enjoys a thorough under
standing of the coal measures.
James 11. Mahon, who lias acted as
coal Inspector at the separators at
Plymouth, has been removed to Miner's
Mills to take charge of the culm break
ers there. His brother will fill the
Congressman Wolverton, of Sunbury,
has bought the property of the Na
thaniel Taylor Coal company, at Mt.

acres was also bought by him for $95,

From the twelfth annual report of the
New York commission of labor statis
tics It appears that recent Improve
ments In labor saving machinery, es
pecially in the printing trade, have
caused a decrease in the number or em
ployes from 20 per cent, to 06 2-3 per
cent.; In other branches of Industry the
decrease will average 18 per cent., and
In some Instances it runs as high as CO
The question, "Has a reduction of
wages been prevented by the fact of
the existence of your organization?" is
answered by 671 labor organizations in
New York state. Five hundred and
forty-three organizations report that
they prevented wage reductions, ninety-live
say that they were unable to pre
vent decreases In the rates of pay and
thirty-three state that there lias been
no demand for a reduction.
Wilkes-Barre Record: The Scranton
parties who have leased the Newport
mines from tho Lackawanna and
"Vt'ilkes-Bnrre, at Newport, lately oper
ated by Charles Parrish and others,
have commenced sinking the shaft 200
feet deeper so as to strike two more
veins. Further down is still another
vein the red ash, which for this time
will not be touched. Several months
will be required to make the projected
improvements, when employment will
be given to BOO men and boys. The new
company has applied for a charter. The
property comprises 650 acres of coal
land, a breaker, and 56 tenement houses.
The shaft is now 200 feet deep and
reaches two veins five and six feet thick
Huzleton Plain-Speaker: As the de
mand for small sized coal is far in ex
cess of the output, Coxe Bros. & Co.
are seriously considering the advisabil
ity of erecting several coal washerles
In order to reclaim thousands of tons
of chestnut, buckwheat, pea and rice
coal, which now lies imbedded in tho
old culm banks in the vicinity of their
various collieries. It isprobablo that two
or more of the washerles will be erected
within a few months. Experienced mine
workers maintain that the big culm
bank that has been standing on tho
Buck mountain tract during the past
thirty years Is the prize of tho region as
no slate picker refuse was ever dumped
upon it and they predict that it will
yield from F,0 to 60 per cent, of pea,
chestnut, buckwheat and rice coal. One
plan that Is being considered In con
nection with this washery Is the ndvls
ablllty of pumping tho water which will
come out of the new tunnel into a big
tank and then erecting the necessary
screens for separating the coal from the
culm and sizing It properly nnd use
mine water from the tank for washing
purposes. - The pumping machinery is
about ready to be started up and this
old slope will soon be relieved of the
water with which it has been filled for
the past thirty years. It is also stated
on good authority that washerles will
be erected at Sandy Run, Kckley and
The sub-committee of the representa
tives of the leading companies in the
anthracite coal trade with a view of
putting it on a reasonable business
basis, reported to the full committee in
New York on Tuesday. Tho report was
so full of figures that it was unani
mously agreed to take a week oft and
look into it fully. The preliminary work
of the committee has been immense,
but as everybody knows what the mat
ter is it looks as if some time had been
wasted. "From the producing point of
view," remarks the Philadelphia Press,
"a valuable mineral is being rpmoved
from the ground and given away. To
stop this Is a problem of Rome difficulty,
because tho producers cannot agree on
details which will temporarily seem to
lessen their importance in tho trade."
The Philadelphia Inquirer says tho re
port of the sub-committee Is "based
upon the mine Inspectors' reports for
1893, which were published by the state
last fall, and shows exactly the out
put and capacity of the different col
lieries In that year. As a basis for the
past nothing could bo better than this;
but as a basis for the future its value
may bo doubted. Since that report was
made Jersey Central Interests have
completed two new breakers, one of
them, the Maxwell, said to be the fin
est In the anthracite region. The Lacka
wanna has put down one now colliery
and has two more under way. Tho
equilibrium of 1S93 has been disturbed
already and by the end of the year the
situation will be quite out of adjust
ment. 8UI1 as a record of the past the
committee's report is the ablest pre
sentation of tho facts that has yet
been presented and it is only to be
hoped the companies will adopt it or
something as satisfactory.'
TRILBY IN A CHURCH WAR

THE VESTRY TELLS HIM TO GO
After Calling Superintendent Watson a
Liar from the Pulpit, the Reading
Preacher Denounces Du Maurler's
Novel A Church Closed.
By the United Press.
Reading, Pa.. Feb. 8. As a reBUlt of
his sensational denunciation of Sun
day School Superintendent George Wat
son from the pulpit of the First Univer
sallat church last Sunday, Rev. G. V.
Racburn has been removed from the
That seductive creature, "Trilby,"
was In a large measure responsible for
the quarrel that ended so disastrously
to tho clergyman.
Several weeks ago, after the congre
gation had been divided Into two fac
tions, the one adhering to Pastor Rae
burn and the other do Mr. Watson, the
vestry called upon the former for his
resignation, which was offered and ac
cepted. Last Sunday, after his sermon,
Pastor Raeburn dtvvv from beneath the
pulpit Bible a paper, which he read to
the startled congregation.
Superintendent Watson had procured
new books for dho Sunday school li
brary, and among them was Du Maur
ler's famous novel, "Trilby."
This enraged Rev. Raeburn, and ho
denounced Superintendent Watson in
the following terms:
"I have found him to be a liar. I
charge that the Sunday school is now in
the control of a ring, and that the
teachers' library, which is accessible t
the young people of the Sunday school,
contains novels which are of a licen
tious character, notably the novel en
titled "Trilby," tho adventures of a
washerwoman, whom the author allows
to pose for an artist, not for the beauty
of her face or form, but of the lowest
and vilest stump; who sells herself body
and soul, and at lust dies with the halo
of a saint about her."
Rev. Racburn said the missionary
money had been stolen not only once,
but frequently. Superintendent Watson
is a member of the vestry, which de
cided to depose the pastor and close ths
DECREASE IN FAILURES.
Dun's Weekly Review of Trade Presents
a More Favorable Condition of Affairs
In the Business World.
By the United PreBS.
New York, Feb. 8. R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly report tomorrow will say: A
whole week the confident expectation cf
the sale of bonds has kept back exports
of gold. Withdrawals from the treasury
amounted to about $2,000,000. but were
mainly for domestic purposes. No bond
bill has passed or is likely to pass con
gress, and in the itwo months Just
past 'the treasury actually lost $67,000,
000 in gold, of which $40,400,000 went
Into circulation, and $26,300,000, besides
the product of the mines, went abroad
How to arrest this outgo in either di
rection Is a problem which another issue
of bonds may possibly solve.
It Is hoped that the negotiations with
foreign bankers mny secure some im
provement, though it Is clear that rates
of securities here will have the same ef
feet as if the bonds were placed in this
country, and they may not be accepted
by the new transactions. In other re
spects the domestic money market is
decidedly encouraging, with a fairly
hopeful Increase in transactions of com
mercial paper, though receipts of
money from the interior continues sur
prlsingly large for the season. The con
ditlon of industrials, if not materially
better, at least presents some points of
encouragement. No advance In the
prices of manufactured products indi
cates a better demand. On the con
trary, iron and steel products have
slightly declined for tho week and for
the month, and in comparison with
prices of October, 18S0, are but 04. 1 per
cent, against 14.8 per cent. Jan. 1.
The remarkably largo decrease In
manufacturing failures deserves the
more attention because prices of maiiU'
factured products have so greatly de
cllned during tho year, and the output
has been greatly reduced. Failures for
the past week have been 281 In the
United States, against 385 lost year and
58 in Canada against 60 lust year.
THE WAR OF PRICES.
Three llig Flour .Mill Companies of the
Northwest Lowering Schodules.
By the United Press.
Chicago, Feb. 8. The three great flour
mill companies of the northwest are em
broiled in a war of prices that promises
to bring the commodity down to a figure
that, from the standpoint of the miller,
will be ruinous.
The l'lllsbury-Washbum Flour Mill
company, limited, announces a cut of 15
cents a barrel ito meet reductions by Its
competitors, the Washburn-Crosby com
pany and the Northwestern Consoll
duited Milling company.
The Wash burn-Crosby people claim
the Plllsbury-Washburn concern Js en
deavorlng to force them into a combl
nation to maintain prices at a uniform
figure considerably "higher than those
now quoted. They assert they will not
yield to the English syndicate that con
trols ithese mills and a. cut of $3 Is ex
pected before the week Is out.
Reductions made in Jobbing prices in
the last two weeks amount to 30 cents a
barrel. The trade is further demoral
ized by a reduction of 5 cents a hundred
In freight rates from Minneapolis to the
seaboard made this week.

STOCKS AND BONDS.
New York, Feb. 8. Pending the
amount of the new government loan
the stock market was stupid and neg
lected. When the official announce
ment finally came business Improved,
but the activity was at the expense of
valuta. It is not too much to say that
the street was disappointed, both as to
tho amount of the issue and the high
rate of interest that the government
will have to pay. It should be stated,
however, that this is the opinion pre
vailing among stock brokers. On the
other hand, bankers are Inclined to
look on the matter more favorably and
claim that the deal Just concluded by
tho government with the banking syn
dicate pi&ctlcally means that the ad
ministration has a call on the bankers
for ali the gold it requires to keep up
t!w reserve to the hundred million
mark. Still tho active traders Ignored
this and were disposed to. sell in the
late dealings. The Iobs in prices ranged
from i to 2 per cent. London was a
seller of Its specialties and the promi
nent 'local bear operators put out fresh
short lines In the Grangers. The storm,
it is expected, will play havoc with the
earnings this week. Total sales, 123,000
shares. Net changes show losses of Vi
to 1 for the day.-

no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully threa
months to mature before grinding.
