Wshlxoto!, April 28. -Director of
tbe Miut Leech was asked for an es-
planation of the statement inada by him
Saturday tbat there was an available
cash balance of $3."8,O0O,000 in the
treasury. Leech said he holds that
gold and silver certificates amounting to
$403,000,000 represent trust money; that
is, tbe coin has been deposited by indi
viduals and tbe government lias issued
a certificate to pay back tbe same on de
mand. Possibly the fund of $7,000,009
placed with the treasury by national
banks for keeping the currency in good
condition is trust money, but as con
gress has Just ordered the money placed
by national banks for retirement, the
circulation is to lie covered into tbe
general balance, it is difficult to con
ceive why this ia any more sacred,
The remainder of the money in
the treasury, some $,'.'W,0ooi)OO,
Leech bolus, belongs almolutely
to the government, "Prior to 1HW,
he says, "the available balance in the
treasury was always shown as the
nuiountof money which fictuallv be
longs to the government. The Klo,ntX)
in gold purchased by the sale of bonds
for resumption pnrj tones was always in
cluded as a portion of the available bal
ance prior to that date, and there is no
reason wny it . should not te. , Mor is
there any reason why legal tender notes
issued in the purchase of silver bullion
are any more a current liability than
other greenbacks. They are a class of
legal tender money, Ihey are not sil
ver monev. as the ix-onle srenerallv sun-
pose. They are iasuetf in the first nlace
in tbe purchase of silver bullion, but as
they come back into the treasury are
reissued for all purposes. The fact that
the secretary is anxious to convert all
the assets into the most available form
of money is no indication tbat there is
any shortage in tbe treasuiy funds. In
accordance with the acts of congress the
trade dollar bullion vnd subsidiary sil
ver coins will be recolned a soon as the
new designs are denn t on.
A Powf for Secretary foater.
Wahhisotos, April 28. The treas

disagree, and that is, whether incipient

disease, Superintendent Weber at New

opinion on that of JJr. Godfrey of the

cision an appeal baa been made to Sec
retary Foster by the attorney of Leo-

sion by Superintendent Weber on the

a certificate from a prominent New

prevailed among the coal miners of

that the kaiser has emphatically con
demued the attitude of the miners a
interfering with bis plans for the im
provement of the condition of the
working classes, and that the authori
ties are carrying out his personal views
in treating the movement with stern se

not to yield to the demands of the men,
and especially as to eight hours, and
have so stated to tbe delegates sent to
coufer with them, some of the masters,
however, refusing to have anything to

C, Kerens and Jefferson Chandler, both
connected with the St, Louis, Arkansas
aud Texas railway, together with sev
eral St. Louis linkers, have just re
turned from hi investigation in Califor

General Manager Dodge, of the Rio
Grande Western, for tbe purjiose of as
certaining what kiud of a traffic agree
ment could be made with tbat company.
They left for Omaha, where tbey will
have a conference with the Union Pa
cific officials there, and will favor tlte
road tbitt offers the best inducement.
The St. Louis getitb'iiieii are wealthy
themselves, beshTi-s having a great deal
of foreign capital at their command,
and the road wtll not remain long
merely on paper, They already own a
valuable franchise from List Angeles to
the coast, and if they can make an ar
rangement with the Atlantic and Pa
cific to use it trwk from Lua Angeles
to Barstow they will begin building at
once, to connect, probably, with tbe
Rio Grande Western at Salfna, a dis
tance of a little over 8-W miles. It will
make a shorter lino to Los Angeles of at
least one day, and, it is expected, will
secure all the fruit business to th east,
which nearly all goes above the line to
