A CRISIS IN MONEY MATTERS ,
Tbo Financial Situation the One Topic of
Conversation at Washington
A GENERAL FEELING OF ANXIETY.
Xho Administration Accused of KeepIng -
Ing Up the Strain to Furtlior Its
Own Intcre.stR National
Capital Now * .
A Serious Stringency *
WASHINGTON , Sept. 21. [ Special Tele-
ftvamtollio Bur. . ] The financial situation
has been the ccncr.il topic of conversation
to-day and causes much an x lot jr. No nno
now doubts tlio existence of a genuine light
ness of the money market , and tlio fact that
BO few bonds were offered and so very few
acccotcd to-day , serves to Increase the gen
eral uneasiness. All- sorts of reports were
going to-day. Among them one thai the
Vaiiderbllts offered 8 0,000,000 In bonds , but
this and others were false. The democrats
to-day charge that the lightness of money
lias been produced by ttio republicans and
protectionists for the purpose of compelling
tlio treasury to unload their surplus and en
able them to tight oft the tartll bill. Nothing
can be more absurd than this , as no party Is
able to manipulate and control the money
market , except the one that holds the treas
ury keys. Tbls chance , and some uncau-
tlous remarks made by leading democrats ,
Justify the counter charge that the
idmintstratton produced and keeps up the
dnanclal strain for the purpose of compelling
congress to reduce the tariff Immediately
after It meets In December. It Is their pur
pose to keep up the strain until the session
has been opened and then to Introduce the
tariff bill argued on at the Oak View confer
ence and whip the protective democrats Into
Its support , if the house passes the bill tRoy
will bo rather pleased to have the senate re
ject It , for they could then lay the blatno for
all the financial troubles at 1)19 ) doors of the
republican senate and the republican party.
This Is a serious chaw , but it is warranted.
The treasury has adopted a desperate expe
dient to make some show of willingness to
relieve the tightness of money , but It knows
It to be Inadequate because it accumulates
more money than It pays out and does not
prevent the reduction of the circulation. The
only way to relieve the strain Is to call con
gress In extra session , and by refusInK to do
It the administration Is engaged In a most
desperate political game that may wreck it
nnd Its party's fortunes. Assistant Secre
tary Thompson , now in cliar.ro of the treas
ury department , clearly feels the great re
sponsibility thriibt upon him by Secretary
Falrchlld , who Is still rusticating In this
crisis. The stake Is too bit for a man like
Thompson and ho Is earnestly urging Fairchild -
child to return. However , Thompson lias
tlio president here and behind him and It U
plain that the latter and Secretary Jiayard
are really directing the present financial
Opinions of New York Financiers.
NKW Yourc , Sept. SI. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE. ] The uncertainty regarding the
future of the money market is causing the
greatest distrust , not only In Wall street , but
throughout the country. The general opinion
of financiers Is that If the secretary of the
treasury would come olit with something
definite In regard to Us policy of bond pur
chases U would hare a great eifect In reas
suring the confidence of the mercantile com
munity. lftlio secretary would announce
that he would buy 825,000,000 of 4 > per cent
bonds at a fixed price , say 108 , It Is thought
that this would ease the money market for
some time to come. The mercantile- com
munity appears to bo suffering more than
Will street on account of tight money.
Banks will loud much more readily on stock
collateral than on the notesot merchants and
will- often afford light walsted brokers
better accommodations than they
will allow to strong houses.
Oue great reason merchants can't get money
is , they want to borrow on time. Batiks
don't care to lend money for any long period
now , as they expect to get a mueh higher
rate of Interest If the financial stringency
continues and they want to hold on to a :
much money as possible for that emergency ,
but they will lend readily on call coans , for
they can got money back at any moment.
Iteferring to the matter of the treasury
purchases of bonds , the Tribune says : "The
dlfllculty Is that the speculative force Is like
expending steam In a boiler , safe when con-
lined , perilous only when suffered to gut be
yond restraint That a strong rally would
Immediately follow any expansion by the
treasury Is admitted , and the secretary Is
perfectly aware that , with higher prices foi
stocks , grain , provisions , cattle , and othei
objects of speculation , money would
be required to carry and to handle
the fcame quantity of supplies. Secretary
Falrchlld should understand that no bene-
clal relief but only more pressure , with iina
collapse , lies that way. He did not holi
business , but speculation , when lie rapldlj
Inflated the currency last year. It ho put :
out ten , twenty , or even fifty millions now
every dollar that It rould get would be ab
Borbed by speculation , and the needs of legitl
mate trade might be In no respect better sap-
plied than they are now. It the secretar ]
could loan or pay direct to merchants 01
manufacturers , and not to holders of bonds
that would be another matter , but holders o
bonds are not merchants or manufacturer !
and they are apt to seek as profitable- em
ployment of money as they can get
niul the speculator will oiler hlclio
Interest than any legitimate operator can
This Is not a good time to Inflate again , because
cause the effects of the former unwise Inlla
tlon make money tight. The supply o
money in the country is abundant for ni
legitimate needs. It Is not lariro enough t
enable bold operators to buy up the worli
and all its crops , or to build in a year all th
houses , stores , railroads , factories and otho
structures that will be wauted In tivo yeoi
The World to-day prints Intervlaws with i
number of baikcis. The majority of thei
Incline to the belief that the adnilnlstratio
should come to the relief by buying bonds.

COMING COAti FAMINE. '
A Coal narnn'a Gloomy Predictions
For the Cnmlnic Winter.
Cinr-Aoo , Sept. SI. [ Special Telegram to
the BEK. I In an Interview this evening re
garding the reported threatened fuel famine
this winter , one of the most prominent of the
coal barons said : "Hard coal has not been so
scarce In twenty years at such a season of the
year. The demand Is becoming more urgent
from day to day and It Is simply Impossible
to soure cars and vessel transportation to
an exteiit In any way adequate to meet the
Increasing requirements. There is not
enough hard coal to go around and If the
present state of things continues , anthractlo
fuel will be a costlv luxury the coming win
ter. Indeed , there are now thousands of
towns and villages In various states west and
north of the Ohio river that cannot get hard
coal at any price. Wholesale dealers hero
are receiving dispatches dally and hourly
from coal merchants and manufacturers In
various places in Missouri , Nebraska , Kan-
5as , Dakota and other states , earnestly plead
ing for shipments to meet Immediate
and urgent wants. There Is little erne
no cicil , however , to spare them ,
and their Importunities are only rewarded
with refusals or excuses. Out west soft coal
or corn cobs must bo the fuel of the coming
winter. " Kelernng to the Increase In the
price of coal ho said : "Lot mo say right here
that the Inter-state commerce bill Is responsi
ble In a large measure for the high cost of
coal In this market. That bill , as a whole ,
has so far proved a fraud , a delusion and a
snaro. The long and short haul clause Is re
sponsible for the enhanced cost In coal laid
down here of 75 cents per ton and thereby
saddles upon the people of our city alone a
tax this tlrst year of Its operation of over
51,000,000 , which falls more oneorously upon
the poor than upon the rich. " The gentle
man further said that coal which Is selling
to-iiiy : for | 7.2o per ton will be up to 89.50 or
810 before snow tiles.

Campbell , a newspaper man well known In
Omaha , where he had been employed at
various tunes on the papers , shot his wife
yesterday at this place , the ball entering her
left breast , but luckily striking a rib , deflectIng -
Ing and coming out of her back' without
causing a fatal Injury. Campbell , his wife
and little boy , came here about three weeks
asto from Omaha. He accepted a place on anew
now evening paper , the Sun , and attended
strictly and faithfully to business. His wife
did not like Leaven wortli , evincing an almost
Irresistible. Inclination to go to Kansas City ,
her homo , going so far as to intimate that
she would even abandon her husband. At
last she did go , Friday , September 11 , and
visited her sister , a young widow , who lives
at 1514 East Eighteenth street. At tier sis
ter's Instance and request she joined In what
was intended to be a little harmless frolic ,
but at a road house the two were , induced to
partake of liquor and met two men. Camp
bell finally went to Kansas City and brought
his wife hero. Suspecting that she had been
faithless he charged her with It , and she
confessed , whoreunon ho drew his revolver
and shot at her. Campbell's wife was Miss
Kllza Kusler. They had been married
about six years. She Is now not over
twentv-ouo years of ago , pretty and InterestIng -
Ing , and to all appearances , affectionate and
kind. She look the shot heroically
without n murmur or complaint , and when
questioned after her wound was dressed , as
to the cause of the affair , admitted that It was
all her own fault , and that she was entirely
to blame : Her recovery will be but a matter
of a few days.
Camubell made no effort to escape or elude
the officers. Ho was a familiar and popular
figure in the regular army , having graduated
at West Point June It ) , IbOO. Ho served as a
lieutenant until August , 1375. when ho re
signed on his own motion. Since then ho
has been engaged In newspaper work. He
was released on ball In the evening , and
there Is not likely to be a prosecution , as the
wife will prefer not to appear against him.

Found What ItVnn. .
LINCOLN , Neb. , Sept. 21. [ Special Tele
gram to the BKE.J A worklngman named
Smith was horribly mutilated In a remarka
ble manner this evening. On O street , at the
corner of Ninth , hanging from a telephone
pole and lying along the ground for a dis
tance , was a broken telophoncwlrewhlch | had
In some manner become crossed , or In con
nection with one of the electric light wires.
As Smith was passing along the street ho saw
the wire burning , and attracted by the strange
appearance , and not realizing what It was ,
evidently took hold of It to ascertain what It
meant. The shock ho received was terrific ,
and his shrieks brought hundreds to the
street He could not loosen his hold on the
wire , and It burnt his hands to the bone.
In his wrlthlngs and contortions the charged
wire came in contact with his head , burning
out one of his eyes and laying the sldo of his
face open. Wherever It struck his body It
cut like a knife. A bystander , realizing the
peril of the man , ran to him , grabbing him
to pull him from the wire , but by the shock
he received when ho came In contact with
the body of the man ho was knocked ten feet
Into the street and utterly prostrated so that
it was feared ho was also killed. By this
time the electricity had either burned the
man Smith loose from the wire , or ho had
succeeded In his struggles In break
ing away. Ho was picked up and carried
Into an adjolningrostaurantand a half dozen
physicians summoned. Tlio man presented
a horrible appearance and despite the physi
cians' effects to put him under the Influence
of morphine he shrieked and writhed In the
agony ho suffered until ta ken to the hospital.
The doctors express an opkiion that he may
survive his Injuries although It appears lin-
.posslblo. . It Is understood , thu oil company
In moving tanks throuuh the streets to-day
and passing under telephone wires must have
broken this one , which after breaking caimi
In contact with the electric light wire , and
this became a death warrant where hundreds
of people were passing. That others were
not Injured through the carelessness Is al
most a miracle.

CIUCAOO , Sept. 21. [ Special Teloeram to
the BKK.J The rebuff received by Captain
Black yesterday before the supreme court
was very disheartening. He said to-day ,
however , that If the worst comes to the worst
the volumlnousnoss of the record and the
length of time required to copy It are excel
lent grounds for a stay of proceedings by the
court or a respite by the governor. But he
he does not despair of getting the record
ready In time for the United States supreme
court to act on an application for a sup r-
sedeas. In fact , ho believes that a justice of
that court can lawfully grant a superscdeas
without seeing the whole record , and by
merely consulting the abstracts In the
case. Ho left therefore for Now York
this evening , accompanied by Attorney
Solomon , whom he takes along
because of his familiarity with the
case. They carry with them copies
of the main papers in thu case for New York ,
where the prospects of securing a supcrscdoas
will no doubt bo anxiously canvassed by
themselves and General Koitor A. Pryor.
The anarchists In the county Jail had more
callers than usual to-day , and appeared to bo
remarkably cheerful. The story In a morn
ing paper of Nina Van Xandt's maid going
to Captain Schaack with a blood-curdling ac
count of how the anarchists were plotting
wholesale destruction , and were endeavoring
to have weapons convoyed to them from the
outside by Nina herself , created considerable
amusement on all sides to-d.\y , but was de
nied In tote by Captain Schaack , Consider
able precautions are taken at tim jail just the
same to guard against any surpriso. A cor
don of police surround thn building , and dir
ectives hang around the corridors and
ounge In and out with assumed carelessness ,
but still keeping a watchtul oyoou every per
son who enters the place , or even looks curi
ously at it from the outside. States Attorney
Grlnncll Is the special object of tbo care ot
the watchers. Everything bronchi Into
the jail for the anarchists by their friends Is
subjected ton careful , minute examination ,
ana It Is quite Impossible that any weapon
or explosive could be given to them which
would enable them to attempt an escape and
any effort to destroy the building from tlio
oiuslrto would involve the death of the men
whom all their friends are * now moving
he.ivcn and c.utli to save from that fate.
The mall of the Imprisoned men has In
creased vastly since the judgment of the
supreme court. Twice a dav the death watch
distributes u bie bundle of letters and papers
among them. Spies gets the most mall.
Some big , corpulent envelopes came one day
last week. Ono was sent to each of the
anarchist" . Tlio superscription on one ot
them was : "To Citizen August Spies , Mur
dered by the State. " On one corner ot the
envelope was : "Citizen George Francis
Train , Now York. " A visitor who talked
with Sowab this morning , said he had re
ceived a letter from Ilerr Bebel , thu great
socialist leader of the German parliament.

Pnrsons Wants liberty or Poath.
CHICAGO , Sept. 21. A. K. Parson's , the
condemned anarchist , sent for a reporter to
day and gave out for publication a long docu
ment addressed "To the American People , "
and made a special request that it bo pub
lished without any alteration. Ho quotes at
length the evidence and rulings of the su-
iremo court , says that the speech credited to
ilm in the trial was garbled ex
tracts by excited and Imagina
tive newspaper reporters ; that ills
Haymarket speech did not excite the riot ,
and that there was no connection between
his speeches and the death ot Oflicer Decan ;
says the evidence did not show him gulltv ,
but proved his Innocence ; that he has been
convicted as an anarchist and not a mur
derer. Ho came and gave himself up fora
fair trial , and appeals to the American people
ple to avert the awful crime of judicial niur-
Der. The lovers of justice are engaged in
an effort to thwart the consummation
ot judicial murder by the commutation
of the sentence to prison. For tills I
thank them , but lam an innocent man. 1
am sacrificed to those who say : "These men
may be Innocent , but they are anarchists. "
I am prepared to lay down my life for my
rights and the rights of my fellow men , but I
object to being killed ou false and unproved
accusations. Therefore 1 cannot counte
nance or accept the efforts of those who
would endeavor to procure a commutation
of my sentence to Imprisonment
In the penitentiary , neither do I approve of
any further appeals to courts of law , as be
tween capital and Its legal rlirhts and labor
and its rights the courts must decide with the
capitalistic class. To appeal to them would
be the appeal of the wa oslave to hi ; capital
istic master for liberty. If I had never been an
anarchist before , my experience with the
courts , and laws would make an anarchist of
me now. I appeal , not for money , but for
justice. After again saying that lie will not
accept a commution of sentence , he closes
bv quoting the language of Patrick Henry ,
"Give mo liberty or give mo death. "

Mr. Anderson asked the witness If ho
thought It proper to use this money In pay

the time that bills ot great pecuniary interest
to the Central Pacific company were pending
and before the said members had voted
Witness answered : "I should hosltato be

and It was nocessaty to collect a treat deal oi
information regarding the road for thu ititor- .
mutlon of members of cougiess , and this cost t
a great deal of money. It was the custom to }
retain and umploy in mi to approach congress

to act. Witness hnld it was lively times tat
