of sugar loading for the United States

Association of Belgian.
ErusselB. June 15. M. Alphonse Al
lard. who was a delegate from Belgium
to the international monetary confer
ence of 1892. in an addresso to the con
servative association asserted that the
protective policy of Belgium is the re
sult of th currency difficulty, which he
declared has divided the world info hos
tile camps and developed changes ab--'
.utely opposed to the Interests of the
gold countries and in favor of the silver
currency nations. M. Allard also said
that the fall In the prices of commodi
ties is not due to overproduction, but
to the scarcity of money caused by the
demonetization of silver in 1ST3.

Silver Convention at Memphis Adopts j
Strong Resolutions. I
Memphis, Tenn., June 15. When the
silver convention was called to order for
the afternoon session Thursday Senator
Jones of Arkansas, as chairman, pre
sented the report of the committee on
resolutions, which was unanimously
adopted. The resolutions advocate the
free and unlimited coinage of gold and
silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, declare that
International co-operation is not neces
sary, and attribute the recent hard
times entirely to the demonetization of
silver. They continue:
"Be lieving that It is absolutely neces
sary to reverse the present Iniquitous
and ruinous financial policy, we there
fore resolve
"That we fa :he immediate resto
ration of silver its former place as a
full legal tender, standard money, equal
with gold, and the free and unlimited
coinage of both silver and gold at the
ratio of 16 to 1 and upon terms of exact

co-operation of other nations, we believe
the United States should not wait upon
the co-operation of other governments
or the pleasure of creditors, but should
themselves proceed to reverse the
"grinding process" that Is destroying
the prosperity of the people, and should
lead by their example the nations of the
"That the rights of the American
people, that the Interests of American
labor, and the prosperity of American
industry have a higher claim to the con
sideration of the people's law-makers
than the greed of foreign creditors, or
the avaricious demands by "idle hold
ers of idle capital." The right to regu
late its own people is right which no
free government can barter, sell or sur
render. This reserved right is a part
of every bond, of every contract, and of
every obligation. No creditor or claim
ant can set up a right that can take
precedence over a nation's obligation to
promote the welfare of the masses of Its
own people. This is a debt higher and
more binding than all other debts and
one which It is not only dishonest, but
treasonable to ignore.
"We therefore appeal to the plain peo
ple of the land, with perfect confidence
in their patriotism and Intelligence, to
arolse themselves to a full sense of the
peril that confronts them and defend
the citadel of their liberties with a vig
ilance which shall neither slumber nor
The following resolution was also
presented and adopted:
"Resolved, That a committee composed
of one member from each state be ap
pointed by the delgates thereof in this
convention, whose duty It shall be to
correspond with the representatives and
advocates of bimetallism and bimetal
lic societies In the different states of the
union, end devise measures to advance
the cause of bimetallism throughout
the United States. This committee shall
have power to call a national conference
of btmetallists whenever, in the opin
ion of the committee, the cause of bi
metallism can be advanced thereby.
Said committee shall have power to fill
all vacancies."
The platform as It was originally In
tended It should not, the call being
strictly non-partisan, contains no men

Berlin, June 15. The National Zel
tung says that replies have now been
received by the government from the
majority of the federal governments to
the former's Inquiry regarding the ex
pediency of an International conference
for the settlement of the currency ques

swers do not imply opposition to the
proposal, not one of them manifests a
real desire to a conference. The replies,
it appears, generally indicate a convic

important Derision by Secretary Smith
as to Land Payments.
Washington, June 15 Secretary Hoke
Smith has rendered a decision that will
be of Interest to many Western home
steaders. The case in cjuestion was that
of J. A. Wells of the Alliance land dis
trict, Nebraska, who requested an ex
tension f time for making payment on
his preemption claim. The land omce
refused the request on the ground that
such extension could be granted only
in cases where inability to pay existed
by reason of failure of crops. In his de
cision Secretary Smith reversed this
ruling, and calls attention to a recent
act of congress which extends the time
of final payment for ten year in cases
where the entryman is unable to make
payment on account of any cause which
he is unable to control.

Senator Stewart Makes the Speech of
the Day In Arraignment of Our Pres
ent Financial Policy The Attendance
Continues Large.
Memphis, Tenn., June 14. The sec
ond day's session of the silver conven
tion opened this morning-with no sign
of a diminution in the supply of speech
es. The attendance was almost up to
the first day. At 10:15 o'clock Rev. Dr.
Brooks of Memphis opened the conven
tion with prayer, after which the arri
val of delegates from Arizona and one
from Arkansas was announced. Chair
man Turpie then announced that the
committee on resolutions was not ready
to report, and introduced Senator Will
iam M. Stewart of Nevada, who ad
dressed the convention In part as fol
lows: "The object lessons of the last three
years show that the American people
are face to face with concentrated cap
ital, the enemy which destroyed all pre
vious civilizations. A shrinking volume
of money as compared with population
and business produces falling prices,
paralyzes industry and compels the pro
ducers of wealth to pawn their property
to continue the struggle against Im
pending fate. The vast bonded debts of
the United States and Europe have
parsed through the hands of the Roths
child combination for nearly a century,
and the Increment retained by them
alone Independent of their numerous as
sociates, is estimated at J2.000.000.000.
This combination robbed the United
States cf gold to convert the silver debt
of Austria into gold obligations and
made J400.000.000 In the transaction. By
this means the great combination
wrecked the finances of this country
and caused the panic in 1893."
The senator said the present lull In
the financial storm had been purchased
by our government with the last Issue
of bonds. He declared nine-tenths of
the people of the country were in favor
of the free coinage of silver. Con
tinuing, he said: "The people have at
la si taken this matter Into their own
hands. The democracy of Illinois has
broken the Ice. The advocates of free
coinage at 16 to 1 by the United States
alone comprise three-fourths of the
voters of the United States. The only
hope for gold monopoly is to divide
and conquer. They have played that
game for the last time. Whatever poli
ticians and tlmeservers may do. the
south and west and all lovers of free
institutions everywhere will come tog-ether
and rescue this government from
the rule of the gold kings. If
the people submit to financial bond
age and lose their liberty, they will
have been warned In time. The gold
standard, falling prices, and hard times
are as much the policy of the republi
cans as of the democrats."
State of South Dakota May Lose Noth
ing iy in Acts.
Sioux Falls. S. D.. June 14. There Is
no longer any question of the return of
W. W. Taylor to this state within ten
days. Attorney-General Crawford.
State Prosecutor Homer and Stewart of
Pierre, attorneys for Taylor and bonds
men, and H. M. Benedict, brother-in-law
of Taylor, are In the city and authorize
this statement. Attorney-General
Crawford told friends the state had
nothing to offer except Indictment,
prosecution, and enforcement of every
claim. Statements were made as to
how much money Taylor could put up
to meet his defalcation and Attorney
General Crawford Is satisfied that a
schedule of property which Taylor owns
or controls will nearly meet the claim of
the state. Taylor's repretentatlve was
supplied with a warrant uader seal of
the state to escort him to South Dakota,
the warrant being for the purpose of
protecting Taylor from reward sharks
who might arrest him while on the way.
Taylor went from Florida to Havana,
then to Central America. Dutch Gui
ana in South America, thence to King
ston. Jamaica, thence to Para in BrazlL
From there he came north.
Adverse Decision Rendered by Illinois
Supreme Court.
Springfield, 111.. June 14. The decision
handed down by the supreme court
this morning In the Whisky trust
case, in which the decision of the Cook
county court declaring the trust illegal.
Is affirmed. Is one of the strongest ar
raignments of combinations for the pur
pose of cornering or controlling prices
In products ever promulgated by any
court. The language is of no uncer
tain character, and has given Attorney
General Moloney and his assistants
much satisfaction. The principle of
corporation and trusts of this character
is hit hard by te court, and the attorney-general
teels that the principles
underlying the decision are broad
enough to Include the Pullman com
pany. He feels that the adverse deci
sion in the Pullman case will be re
versed on reaching the Illinois supreme
court. The decision in the Whisky
trust case is thought to end the career
of that monopoly.
Will Demand Indemnity.
Washington, June 14. The confirma
tion of reports that American mission
ary property in China has been de
stroyed makes it probable that the
United States government will require
China to make suitable indemnity when
the facts are officially established. The
reports of losses to mission property in
China vary. It is said the indemnity
asked will cover not only the actual
damage and loss to the American mis
sionaries, but also a punitive sum as
recompense for the Indignity suffered.
Trouble with Miners Threatened.
Boise, ' Idaho, June 14. An alarming
state of affairs exists in the Coeur
d'Alenes, In North Idaho, owing to
trouble between the miners' union and
the law and order men. who have or
ganized to protect laborers In their
rights to work If they can get employ
ment. A man who incurred the enmity
of the miners' union was killed there re
cently, and the coroner's jury returned
a verdict of suicide. Gov. McConnell
has secured several hundred stands of
arms, and over 200 volunteers are drill
ing here to prepare for coming conflict,
which seems imminent. Idaho has no
state militia.
United States Will Have to Patrol Seal
lng Grounds Alone.
Washington. June 14. Great Britain
has failed to renew her adherence to the
Joint regulations for the government of
the seal fisheries in Bering Sea, and
upon the United States has devolved the
patrol of this vast area single-handed
and under conditions that may at any
time give rise to trouble. Beginning
early In the year, the state department
sought to induce the British govern
ment to renew these regulations, but up
to Ibis, date the effort has been unsuc
cessful, and now that Sir Julian Paunce
fote, the British ambassador, has gone
home to England on leave of absence it
is certain nothing in that direction can
be accomplished before next fall. This
declination of the British to enter again
into the Joint regulations Is ascribed en
tirely to Canadian pressure, and it Is
felt that if left to follow their own im
pulses they would not hesitate to Join
the United States in the execution of the
recommendations of the Paris arbitra
tion in spirit as well as In letter. The
situation Is one calculated to breed trou
ble and is the cause of some anxiety to
the treasury officials.
London, June 14. The Bering Sea bill
which was Introduced Into the house of
commons Monday last by Sir Edward
Gray and which passed Its first reading
upon that occasion replaces the act of
1S93, which expires In July, and will en
able the government to carry out its
agreement with Russia. It empowers
the government by order in council to
prohibit seal catching. The act remains
In force until January, 1S9S. In addition
to the Bering Sea award In regard to
seizure, it empowers the officers of for
eign states which are parties to the
agreement to seize British ships and
equipment when they violate the order.
An lmpressian prevails here that Can
ada will vigorously oppose the passage
of the new act.
Oar Exports Have a Decided Falling
Off O fltlclal Figures.
Washington, June 14. The bureau cf
statistics in Its bulletin on exports
shows that during the month of May the
exports of cotton aggregated J9, 837,261,
which is about Jl.250,000 in excess of
May, 1S94. For the last nine months,
however, there has been an aggregate
loss of nearly J4.000.000. The exports of
breadstuffs during May amounted
to $11,809,697. a gain of J1.000,
000 over May last year. For the
last eleven months, however, there
has been a falling-off of over
J52.50O.0O0. There was a decrease In bar
ley of over Jl.300.000; In corn over J1.610,
000; In oats over Jl. 800.000: in wheat. $16.
300.000; In wheat flour, J17.000.000. Dur
ing May of this year the exports of pro
visions amounted to Jll.971.410, a loss of
over JS.000.000 from May, 1894. For the
last eleven months the loss on provisions
was over JS.700.000.
Filibustering Expeditions from America
to lie Stopped.
Washington, June 14. President
Cleveland late yesterday afternoon Is
sued a proclamation, being the lint
step toward a vigorous suppression of
Cuban filibustering. Reports to the
navy department are to the effect that
the Raleigh will sail for Key West to
day, and will patrol the waters between
Florida and Cuba as carefully as pos
sible. The campp'-n against the fili
busters Is to be a vigorous one. The
Raleigh will be supported by a number
of revenue cutters, and In addition to
thiR steps will be taken ashore to pre
vent the fitting out of exDeditions.
Oppose uii1bv Malls.
Denver. June 14. The synod of the
Reformed Presbyterians adjourned at
midnight last night and most of the del
egates went on a trip to Pike's Peak.
The committee on temperance reported
very strong resolutions against the sale
or use of liquors and tobacco and the
report was adopted unanimously. The
government of the United States was
condemned for countenancing the liquor
traffic and the sale of narcotics. The
report of the committee on Sabbath ob
servation condemned Sunday malls,
transportation, newspapers, street cars
and all kinds of work, also the tendency
to turn the day into an occasion for
merry-making. The appropriations
adopted footed up about J60.000.
Gov. BIcKlnley in Chicago.
Chicago, June 14. Governor William

Chicago, June 14. At yesterday's ses

clergymen favored supporting the mis

school work. The report of the Ladles'

Hailstorm In Minnesota.
Fergus Falls, Minn., June 14. A ter
rible hailstorm struck this city and sur
rounding country yesterday. Thou
sands of panes of glass were broken,
causing a loss of J5.000 to J10.000. A
thousand panes of glass were broken In
the Insane asylum alone. Gardens are
completely ruined. The storm covered
fifty square miles, and the damage to
wheat is very great, and corn and pota
toes are ruined. Reports state that a
general storm prevailed in northern
Minnesota, and crops have no doubt
been greatly damaged.
Muskegon, Mich., June 14. The Fres
Methodist camp-meeting for this dis

' One Kind of Protection That Protects.
j No traveler, not even a doctor, ever
objected to having" his or her life saved
by a Westing-house air brake, and no
' one declines to enjoy the blessings of
Edison's electric light or Bell's tele
phone. All these discoveries are pro
tected by law. Civilized governments
recognize the fact that public benefac
tors are not only worth protecting, but
that they require protection for the
good of the people. By protecting1 them
the public protects itself. Discoveries
that increase the comforts of life and
lessen its burdens and dangers are the
result of brains, study and genius, and
there is a premium on brains the world
Every discoverer is entitled to the
fruits of his labor, genius and skill. It
is enough that he places his discovery
within the reach of the people. He
need not make a partner of the public
or a confidant of the profession.
The case in point is a discovery which
is annually brightening the lives of
a discovery which, according1 to their
own written statements, has rescued
over 90.00 women from conditions of
hopeless despondency and despair and
brought them to happiness and health.
This discovery is legally protected as
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It
is not a patent medicine, but its name
and individuality are, for the benefit of
all, protected against pirates and hum
bugs. It is the discovery of Dr. IL V.
Pierce, of Buffalo, N. ., Chief Con
sulting Physician to the Invalids' Hotel
and Surgical Institute.
Why shouldn't women use it? Its
discoverer is a regularly qualified phy
sician who has made the treatment of
ailments peculiar to women a life study
and a life specialty. ilis thirty years
practice in this special field, during"
which he with his staff of specialists
have successfully treated hundreds of
thousands of cases, has afforded him
opportunities enjoyed by no one else
for discovering the right methods and
the right remedies.
That he should, for his own protec
tion and the protection of his patients
who are scattered all over the globe,
take advantage of that law of which
every inventor in other fields avails
himself, is neither unprofessional ncr
unbusiness-like. It's good, sound com
mon sense.
One reason that women suffer in
silence agonies that would make
is because her inborn modesty causes
her to shrink from the ordeal of sub
mitting to medical examination and the
stereotyped "local treatment." When,
finally, torture drives her to seek ad
vice, she, unfortunately, only too often
falls into hands that lack the rare abil
ity upon which her peace of mind, her
happines. and her life depend. In
stead of the treatment that makes
thousands of cures a certainty and fail
ure almost unheard-of accident, she re
ceives that which makes failure a cer
tainty and the cure a mere aecident.
No woman, who is tired of suffering,
tired of doctoring, or tired of life,
should fail to write Dr. Pierce, or to
the World's Dispensary Medical Asso
ciation, of Buffalo, N. Y., of which he
is President She will receive, free of
charge, good, sound, professional ad
vice that will enable her to cure her
self at home (if her case is curable),
pleasantly, painlessly, permanetly, and
this, too, without having to undergo the
trying ordeal of "examinations" and the
stereotyped and dreaded treatment by
"local 'applications." If her case is
really incurable, she will be told so
plainly. But Dr. Pierce's records, cov
ering hundreds of thousands of cases,
prove that there are not three incura
ble cases in a hundred.
When Dr. Pierce published the first
edition of his work. The People's Com
mon Sense Medical Adviser, he an
nounced that after 680,000 copies had
been sold at the regular price, SI. 50 per

The Features of a Rogue
A practical detective can frequently
discern at a glance that a man is a rogue.
The stamp of dishonesty on his features,
or his anxiety on being observed, tells
the story. A remarkable illustration of
this fact was narrated by the Boston
correspondent of the Hingham Journal
a year or two ago. The detective was
Constable Derastus Clapp, the succes
sor of "Old Reed," a famous rogue
catcher of Boston half a century ago,
who was for forty years the terror of
evil-doers in and about the New En
lard metropolis.
Clapp was a shrewd man and a most
excellent judge of human nature. He
could tell a rogue as far off as he could
a black man. and he never made mis
takes. His "come along with me' was
imperative and admitted of no argu
ment. An instance of his readiness in read
ing character occurred one morning in
the upper criminal court. A case of
considerable interest was being tried,
and the gallery was crowded with spec
tators. Two or three reporters were sitting
near the door, when Clapp, stooping
over, whispered,
"Dout all look at once, but please
observe that nice-looking man with the
white cravat, in the front middle seat
of the gallery."
We looked. "Now," says Clapp, "I'll
bet thatl can set that man traveling out
of the court-house on the double-quick
in less than five minutes, nor will I leave
the room or send him any message. "
"While we were wondering how the
feat was to be accomplished, the vet
eran quietly beckoned to officer Tallaot,
and taking a pair of handcuffs from his
pocket, directed that officer's attention
to the party in the gallery, and appar
ently gave him same directions.
Tall&nt opened the door and stepped
into the entry, and at the same instant
the man with the white cravat bolted
like lightning through the crowd to th6
door and disappeared.
"Gentleman," remarked Clapp, I
never Baw that man before in my life.
It illustrates the scriptural saying, 'The
wicked flee when no man pursueth. "
irorth Carolina minerals.
A North Carolina farmer of Cabarrus
county suddenly found himself rich the
other day, when he was offered $50 a
bushel for 2,000 bushels of a sand and
gravel mound on his farm. The dirt
was more profitable at that price than
any farm product he could raise or: his
land, but he was as sharp as old Farm
er Rogers, the North Carolin a farmer of
"Esmeralda," and didn't take it. The
gravel mound is as full of wealth as the
dirt pile of Dickens' golden dustman,
and the latest improved machinery is
to be put in to work a gold mine. The
discovery came about in this way : The
farmer knew the mound, and knew of
in old hole near it which had been fill
ed up by the drift of years. He wished
to make a dry, gravelly front yard for
his house, and hauled some cart-loads
of the mound and spread it before his
door. The rains washed it, and he found,
among the gravel a nugget of gold that
weighed an ounce. This opened his
.-yes. Then he scraped up the gravel
and it "panned out" $325 in ro:iea pick
ings. Then he took a bushel of the
mound, ground it to powdei m a mortar
and it yielded $125, which showed his
good sense in not taking $50 a bushel
for it. Then the oldest inhabitant of
Carbarrus, nigh on to a hundred, sud
denly recolected a story told him, jrhen
he was a boy, by his grandfather, about
an Englishman who lived in Raleigh be
fore the Revolutionary times, digging a
pit, finding a pile of gold and going
home to coin it. The pit was on this
very Cabarrus farm and the mound was
made from the diggings. The lucky
Englishman worked the mine in the
rough, took out the biggest yellow
chunks and left the smaller nuggets and
rich dirt for the farmer, and the name of
this sudden millionnaire is Bob Paul.
He will work the mine for all it is
worth, and would not take for the Eng
lishman's leavings as many ten-dollar
gold pieces as would pave every inch
of his farm.

"In my deestrict, Mr. President and
eller members, where a few moons ago
the Indian lover wooed his dusky mate,
and the wild fox dug Lis hole unskear
ed, peace and smiling plenty reign su
preme, and the honest sweat of the toil
er, wrung from the brow of labor by
the horny hand of thrift, irrigates the
soil, about all the hrigation we get in
the course of the Almighty's twelve
months. In that deestrict, Mr. Presi
dent, the champing iron horse of mo
nopoly rushes red-eyed through the
fairest fields and daily climbs fences
and piles of last years' mesquite roots
to kill the only long horn the farmer
ha3 left, the kindly beast, Mr. Presi
dent, which has been the daily com
panion of his wife and daughters, the
mighty bed-fellow of the blue sow in
the front yard, and which he gathered
by bis thrift and diligence from the
passing herd of the Kansas drover. And
when he sues the company for $500 and
gets $1 and cests, who is to blame him
if at the next election he votes frequent
ly for the man who, in these halls have
resounded to the eloquence of the Sev
enteenth legislature, will protect him
in his rights and secure him a large
slice o other people's. Forty years
ago would the pampered minion of a
northern tyrant thus have spurned the
just rights of our citizens ? Not much.
The ready rifle would have rung out
and he would have felt the absurdity of
fooling with the soldiers of the blood
stained field of San Jacinto and the he
roes of the Alamo." Rapturous ap
