SECRETARY CURTIS' "
NEW YORK VISIT
No Information Can Be Obtained at the
PLAUSIBLE THEORIES ADVANCED
The Visit May Have Been Made in
Connection with the Proposed lte
newal of the Itsunnce of ISold Cer
tificatesConfernco at the Sub
Treasury in New York.
Washington, Nov. 2.".. Assistant Sec
retary Curtis hus bwn In New York
two Unys, but will be tit his dosk again
Friday. No information in vouchsafed
at the department ns to th cause for
his visit to New York, but it Is believed
to be In connection with the proposed
renewal of the issuance of cold certifi
cates. It was generally understood at
the department that upon the return
of the ussistant secretary. Secretary
Carlisle would Issue an order permitting
the resumption of this practice, he hav
ing authority under the net of July 12,
1SS2, to stop the Issue of Bold certifi
cates whenever the reserve full below
the one hundred million mark. The
cessation of this Issue has happened
frequently during the past four years,
but It Is now believed that the ordinary
course of business will not interfere
with a practice that has been found
convenient for the banking institutions
of the country and particularly for
those In the large cities.
There has been no stable gold bal
ance since 1893. When Secretary Car
lisle took hold of the treasury In March,
18SI3, there were $116,000,000 of gold cer
tificates outstanding, but they have
been steadily withdrawn. When the
first suspension of the Issue of gold
certificates occurred there were $114,
000,000 outstanding. This happened In
April, WJ3. After the sale of bonds the
gold reserve was recouped, but only
temporarily. On two occasions the Is
sue of gold certificates was resumed,
but It was stopped at both times with
in two or three days after the order was
made permitting them. Then the sec
retary decided not to again direct their
Issue until the balance was stable and
devoid of fluctations that had marked
It through a period of many months.
Today the outstanding gold certifi
cates aggregate only $39,588,139. The
'ssue proposed consists of denomina
tes of $5,000 and $10,000, and will be
Issed to such persons as deposit the
gold In the tressury upon which they
nre issued. These Issues are largely
used by banks as a part of their reserve
fund and enable them to carry a large
amount of the equivalent of gold with
out the bulk of the article Itself and
without the attendnnt losses by abra
CONFERENCE AT NEW YORK.
New York, Nov. 2"i. Assistant Treas
urer Curtis, Assistant Treasurer Jor
dan and 1'reBldent Tappen, of the Gal
'atin National bank, conferred for near
ly a hour in the sub-treasury today.
None of the gentlemen would state,
when the meeting was over, what sub
ect had been under discussion, but
there were any number of rumors In
the street as to what has occurred.
One report had it that the conference
tvas held for the purpose of obtain
ing facts on the financial condition of
the country for use in the president's
forthcoming message to congress. An
other report was that the gold reserve
was the matter under discussion, thnt
Viho administration was desirous of
having at least $100,000,000 gold in the
treasury when It retired, and wished,
therefore to get the views of prom
inent financiers on the situation.
The likelihood of the syndicate, or
ganized last si.ring by President Tap
pen to prevent gold from going abroad,
continuing Its efforts to keeu gold in
this country In the event of the bal
ance of trade shifting, was also dis
cussed, according to rumor, as wus
the reported Intention of Secretary Car
lisle to Issue gold certificates.
CONFIRMED BY LATER GOSSIP.
Later gossip. In a measure, confirms
the statement that Mr. Curtis' visit
was In connection with the proposi
tion for the resumption of the Issue
of gold certificates by the treasury.
Many reuuests for the Issuances for
certificates have been made. No cer
tificates have been issued since 1893,
when the gold reserve In the treasury
fell below $100,000,000. The law says
no certificates shall be Issued when the
gold reserve Is -less than $100,000,000.
It has been placed above that sum
Mr. Curtis would not speak of his
talk with Conrad N. Jordan, the as
sistant United States treasurer.

GR0VER CLEVELAND'S BIRD.
The President Will Dine on Thirty
one Pound Turkey.
Washington, Nov. 25. The president
Of the United States and nearly all his
official advisers will pass Thanksgiv
ing day in this city in a quiet way.
The president and Mrs. Cleveland will
attend divine services in the morning
and eat Thanksgiving dinner in the
executive mansion in company with
their three little girls.
The principal dish at the dinner will
be a choice turkey from the stock of
Horace Vose, of Rhode Island. The
bird arrived by express this morning.
It weighs 31 pounds, and is described as
the fattest and handsomest bird Mr.
Vose has presented. It is by no means
the biggest one, for the peerless bronze
turkeys not rarely attain the weight of
85 to 48 pounds.
MADE A FIREBRAND OF A D00.
Beriom Danger to Many Buildings
Through n Cruel Trick.
Danville, Pa., Nov. 25. A serious fire
was narrowly averted here by the kill
ing of a dog that some unknown mis
creant had set on Jlre and then turned
loose upon the street.
The dog, which was quite a large
animal, with thick hair, was flrBt soak
ed with kerosene and then a match
was applied. The poor brute, a mass
of flame, ran howling plteously up the
street, and in a paroxysm of pain and
fright plunged through a cellar win
dow In the home of Emanuel Price.
Luckily Mr. Price managed to shoot
the dog before the flames were spread.
INSANE PERSONS MALTREATED.
Outrages In Vermont State Institu
tions Are Officially Reported.
Montpeller, Vt., Nov. 25. The special
committee which was appointed some
time ago to Investigate the manage
ment of the state Institutions for the
Insane at Waterbury made Its report
to the legislature today.
It severely tcsrw the state supervis
ors of the insane. Dr. W. H. Olddlngs,
superintendent of the asylum, and oth
ers. The report says the food furnish

ferior in quality.
The report finds that Dr. Glddings
himself strapped and choked patients.
It further jlnds that patients were
kept In a nude condition In rooms bar
ren of furniture and having cement
floors. These patients were allowed no
rugs, and the rooms, the report charg
es, re unheated in cold weather.
BETRAYED AND SHOT HER,
Then the Murderer Endrd His Own
Life with n Ilulli t.
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 25. The
bodies of Herman Myers and Nora A.
Richardson were found In front of a
vacant house early this morning In a
pool of blood. There wns a revolver ly
ing alongside of Myers. Two gaping
wounds In the girl's back and one In
her breast told the story of a murder,
while a hole in Myers' left temnle in
dicated that he had killed hims-lf af
ter taking the girl's life.
From letters found on Myers' body.
It is apparent that he had betrayed the
girl under promise of marriage. All of
the letters begged Myers to make his
promise good "before her shame should
become known to the world," and the
letter of most recent date threatened
him with prosecution if he did not
speedily make good his promise. It Is
supposed that they met last night ami
that the tragedy was the outcome of
Miss Richardson was the only daugh
ter of a prosperous farmer living about
five miles northeast of the city. How
the couple came to be In the distant and
lonely part of the city where the
tragedy occurred is a mystery, the only
explanation being that Myers lured
her there for the purpose of murdering

George Brown's Excuse lor Stealing
Miss Ahrants' Purse.
New York, Nov. 23. While Miss M.

and Brown tried to replace the purse.
He was prevented by a floor walker
and arrested by an otflcer. The purse
contained $25.50 and Brown was charg
ed with grand larceny In Jefferson Mar
He made a pitiable plea of poverty
and hunger. His appearance belled
this. He was attired in a stylish suit
of expensive goods and wore a costly
overcoat. He carried an ivory handled
sun umbrella that any well disposed
pawnbroker would have advanced $5
on willingly. He wore gold rimmed
spectacles and seemed to be a man of
education and refinement. Magistrate
SImms committed the defendant in
$1,000 bail to answer.
BREAK IN THE SALVATION ARMY.
Captain Turner Itesigns and Will
Join American Volunteers.
Chicago, Nov. 25. What may lead to
a big disruption in the ranks of the
Salvation army was Inaugurated Sun
day night at La Grange, when Captain
Turner resigned at a public meeting.
Captain Turner cume from Scotland a
few months ago to stem the tide of sol
diers who were deserting the army and
joining the Volunteers of America. She
is recognized as one of the leaders of
the army, and her resignation, It is
thought, will cause consternation In the
Captain Turner made application to
Colonel Fielding yesterday to Join the
Volunteers of America. Her reason
for so doing, it is said, Is the alleged
bitterness existing against the Volun
teers among the Salvation Army offi
cers. In quitting the old army Cap
tain Turner arraigned Its commanding
officers In bitter terms. She said the
Salvation army had drifted away from
the cause for which it was founded in
its endeavor to crush the Volunteers.

The eagle repeated the attack half a

Next Convention at Gettysburg.
Reading. Ta. Nov. 23. The second
day's session of the state convention
of county commissioners convened at
10 o'clock this morning. The question
"should constables be paid by making
returns to court" was decided nega
tively in accordance with the law of
"Should costs be imposed o Justices
of the peace in petty cases reSrned by
them to court without sufficient cause,"
was discussed, and it was decided that
this hhould be done, but that in order
to do so the law would have to be
A question as to what constituted the
traveling expenses of the commission
ers was explained in a decision handed
down from the supreme court, stating
thnt they should be paid by actual
traveling done in transaction of busi
ness, and not for attending board meet
ings. It was decided that the May
registration cuuld bo dispensed with.
It. F. Hopwnrd, of Vniontnwn, read a
paper entitled "some legislative sug
gestions." It was written by ex-Judge
Kunpp, of Scranton. He calls atten
tion to defects in the registry not of
May 29, 1S91.
A resolution was presented by W.

criminal cases be changed so that here
after when an unfounded criminal
ehnrge Is brought before a Justice of

that the costs thereof, in nil misde
meanors be placed upon the prosecutor.
The resolution was adopted by a vote

TO ABOLISH FEE SYSTEMS.
A resolution offered by Berks com
missioners was adopted asking that the
constitution of the state should be
amended providing proper classification
of cities and counties of the common
wealth to permit all county officials to
be paid salaries instead of by fees.
It was decided to have but one reg
istration and that it begin on the first
Monday In August. This was framed
by the Berks commissioners. It was
also decided to change the time of the
triennial assessment to the first Mon
day in September.
Warren county commissioners asked
that the legislature be asked to amend
the law so that one registration a
year shall be made of voters Instead of
twice a year as now required. This
was agreed to.
J. H. Smith, of Hollldaysburg. pre
sented a resolution "that a law be rec
ommended making all county, school,
borough, township and road taxes a
tlrst lien upon the real estate against
hlch they are assessed " Adopted.
The next convention will be held at
Gettysburg, the time to be fixed by the
executive committee. Adjourned.

In reply Raron Banffy said there was
no warrant for these objections, as no
law obliged the king to open the Diet
in the parliament house, and there
fore he would open the session In the
palace, surrounded by the dignitaries
of Huncary, and over the king's resi
dence would be displayed the national
and Croatian tricolor and the stand

nouncement was greeted With loud

Shocking Death of Lamar Ruth at
South Bethlehem, Pa., Nov. 25. A
distressingly sad and most remarkable
fatal nccldent befell a tiny lad here
yesterday afternoon. A C-year-old boy,
playing with his two small brothers,
was caught under a heavy old mortar
box, which finally crushed out his life,
after the little fellow had struggled
heroically. His brothers gave no
alarm, and the child was left lying
there for several hours. With one hand
that was free he attempted to dig his
wav out. and when found he had, with
his tender fingers, clawed a hole 15
Inches long, 12 inches wide and 2 Inches

persons, the majority of whom were
women, were thrown Into a panic short
