THE OMAHA DAILY BEE. SEVENTEENTH YEAK. OMAHA , THURSDAY MORNING. SEPTEMBER 22. 1887. NUMBER 1)64 ) 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 policy. 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 hence. " 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. IlonclH Itought.

[ 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. AVENGING H 13 I1ONOK. "Cap. " Campbell Shoots His Faith less \Vlfo In the Hronst. LEAVEHWOUTII , Kan. , Sept. 21. Qulnton 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.

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.

[ 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. Captured Two Runaway * . AUROBA , Neb. , 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.

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. " Anarchy's Dylnjr Wall.
