the price of silver the causes which npoiated
to produce it are nppiiient In the Hist ilaco
the possible stock of silver ine w York has
not .sensibly dee-leased , notwithstanding the
pmchnso by the government of l'JUil,4rs
ounces of Hilv or since August 13. This largo
and tindlmtnlshcd stock Is u Standing mcnaco
to the price of silver. Largo vvestein retbi-
cries , iu hopes ot reali/ing a laigo profit , held

In the supreme court yesterday a motion to

day in November. This case is to test the
constitutionally of ttio so-called priv ate ex
ecution law which was pissed by the le-glsia-
turo of that state in Apiil last.
The petitioner In this paiticulir In
stance was convicted of murder , which
w.is alleged to hive been committed bofoio
the law was signed by the governor , and ho
thoieforo claims that the htvv , so far as It
applies to this case is ov ; jwst facto and
against the provisions of the llist uiticlo ot
the fedeial constitution. But the principal
point at Issue scorns to be the Icgalilv of that
si'ctiou of tlio statute which gives the gov-
einor the light to llx the day for execution
after conviction. Inasmuch as there 19 a
provision very similir to this in the How-

Lane said : ' 'Westbound tliiongb business Is

conceius nobody out the two icacU in inter

turbed by the so called boveott niict they
find in the cuiscs leading to it and
in the Ill-fooling of competitors an
Inspii.uion for all the recent wild
repoits concerning the road. The
stories of accidents , Lane says , have boon
greatly exaggerated. 'Iheir sjstem is getting
nn enormous tialllo at the present time -

and its equipment is neccssailly getting &o-

As regards the latest story from Chicxgo ,
published today , to the effect that the man
agement was woiking tacitly to wieck the
