is much agitation over the nutter

to enlighten the representatives of
the local or metropolitan press , but
the remark jhat it is a bad one , comes
from those claiming to be posted , but

it falls doei not pack or mell , and thus
the obstruction to traffic in the streets
is very great. The trucks and strret
cars have doubled teams , but they ara
frequently blockaded. Incoming
mails were considerably delayed , al1
being two hours behind the usual

MINNEAPOLIS , Dec. 29 4 p. m
Nothing has been heard of N. S. Har-
wood since his flight. It is now firm
ly believed that he joined his wife at
New Orleans and took a steamer for
some foreign clime. It is known that
they carrid away at least § 150,000 be
tween them. Mr. A. T. Morse , a
buyer for Harwood , made a state
ment that HarwoOd gave orders in
Ssptember-to buy all goods needed in
all departments to last untilJanuary.
October 1st orders were again given
to buy heavily. These orders were
repeated several times before the
failure. Morse says he protested , as
the departments were already
overstocked , but Harwood
said he waaafraid of
higher prices and freight pools , and
would be responsible for the goods or
dered. About this tiino goods .began
to arrive , which he ( Morse ) had not
ordered , and he protested with Mr.
Harwood , and-asked if the buying
had been taken ont of bis hands.
Harwood called him aside and told
him not to speak of it , as it would
create suspicion among the clerks.
Mr. D. Ingram , Hirwood'a Now
York buytr , has arrived here. He
says he had an agreement with Har
wood for a siiary of $7EOO
per annum , but that ha waste

remainder bick until it amounted to
10,000 , when ho waa to bECome F.

WASHINGTON , December 29 10 p.
m. Secretary SsbUrz had an hour
and a half interview with the Chey-
enny river Sioux this morning. After
telling them th&t they should , if they
de ired to hi like white men , attend
to the business 0:1 which they came ,
Four Bear and Rattling Rib made
talk ? , insisting on § 7,000,000 as the
pries for the right of v.ay. It was in
vaia that the secretary expl lined that
tint was more than i' would cost to
build and rquip the road. They in
sisted that wan ho j-rico their ppnnle
had fix"d on. The secretary showed
them that the price offerei ! § 5 pjr
acre was four times as much as tMtti
to white men , but they still persisted
in their demand , nnd said they would
go homo again and talk to their pee
ple. The secretary finally closed the
interview summarily by lulling thorn
that if they t emst d in so fooliah a
demand , it ins r o use to continue the
talk. The IndiiiH ? , ill probably con
fer among thcmaelvf 3 , and aak anoth
er hearing in a day or two.
It has been decided as the beat
means of disposing of the \Vhittaker

Where the Gold aud Silver Goes To.
CleTelacd leader.
The mint bureau authoritatively
states that during the past seven
yesra the mines of this country have
produced about $230,000,000 of gold
and 8271,500,000 of silver. Of this
production about 95i per cent of gold
and G0 | par cent , of silver reached
the mints and assay offices to be con
verted into coin or bars.
For some time in the past the di
rector of the mint hesbeen desirous to
obtain correct information as to the
c'ual uses of the domestic production
of the precious mctah. After his
report for 1879 he mailed
several thousands of circulars to
all the manufacturers of jewelry ,
[ jLito foil , chemictls and others con-
Miming jold nnd silver atking for in
formation. While many failed to
unmh the information sought , yet
enough returns have been made upon
which to predicate an approximation
to the amount uaad in the arts , cien-
css and manufactures. The total
amounts reported wen ab > at § 3,500-
OOU in fzold and § 355'JOvyJJ ' in surer.
Quite S255COCOO of the gold w 1
United States c in , while only § oOO-
000 was in silver coin. This emnll
amount of silver coin used , in proportion
tion to the gold , is accounted for by
the fact that the intrinsic valua if
United S atee silver coin ia marly 10
per cent , loss -than its face value ,
while gald is the same in coin or
bullion.- .
Basing an estimate upon the n-t *
obtained , the direct-r assumes that
the amount of domestic bullion used
m the arts and manufacture i daring
the last fiscal year w s about § 5 CCO- ,
000 of gold , and S-4,000 000 of silver.
.and th'tt the total conumr-if > n in all
terms wns about SlO.OOOUOO in g < M ,
* ud S3.CCO 000 in s.lver. While th 3
is simply au approximation , it will
serve to showtowhatn-'aihe precious

ther said that the object of the pros-
ccuuon in bringing the travererg to
trial was to suppress a species of tyr
anny which overwhelmed both rich
and poor ? which dofid law , and had
reduced Ireland to a state of anarclty.
The attorney-general's voice was very
weak , and his speech wa not as cfljc-
tivo as was expected. When the
court adjourned the cr wds which
were waiting outside cheered I'aruell
nnd the other defendants , but public
interest in the czio seems to be dimin
ishing. Very little or nothing of a
dramatic ch.iracter has thus far oc
curred in connection with it.
