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 Bonds Perfected. 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 cial policy. 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. GHOVKH C LK V ML AND. Executive Mansion, 'cb. 8, 1S1I5. LARGEST LAKE CRAFT. A Monster Bout Is Ordered by Eastern Capitalists. 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 Polico Notice 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. INDUSTRIAL TOPICS. 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 vancancy. Congressman Wolverton, of Sunbury, has bought the property of the Na thaniel Taylor Coal company, at Mt. Carmel, for $700,000 ; 2,700 acres of coal land, breaker, etc. A tract of 2,040 acres was also bought by him for $95, 000. Beginning Wednesday the collieries of the Reading Coal and Iron company In tho Lykcns Valley district will work a full week three-fourth time Instead of three days at three-fourth time. The news was given to the miners last evening. 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 per cent. 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 respectively. 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 Tond Creek. 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 Rev. Racburn Objects to It In the Sunday School. 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 pastorate. 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 church. 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. Cash and Whiskey Liberally Used. By the United Press.

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.- Tho range of today's prices for the ac tive stocks, of tho New York stock mar ket are given below.
