Among the Now York Banks the Situation is
Reported Much Easier.

Clearing House Committee.
Nnw Yontc , July 3. The Fourth of July
holiday evidently was begun by many busi
ness men on Saturday , and no business was
transacted down town today , except that
which could not bo nvolded , These brokers
who were not short on stocks nnd who had
renewed their loans on Friday over until
Wednesday , evidently remained away today ,
content to lot the sliver question nnd other
factors of that character in which they were
interested take cnro of themselves.
But. although there was little doh.cron the
Stock exchange and many business ofllccs
were clpsed , the banks were nil very busy ,
the first of July payments , in addition tp
their Monday morning's mall , making plenty
of work for them ,
Among the banks the situation was re
ported to bo very easy this morning ; the de
mands from the country , it was said , were
very llcht nnd many of the largo centers ,
notably Chicago , were beginning to pay back
the money thpy borrowed from Now York.
At the Hilltreasury.
The subtrcasury was quite active today.
Besides receiving $100,000 in gold for tele
graphic transfer to San Francisco it paid
out fc'.l.'iO.OOO during the flay , the bulk of the
small notes being for t ho use of the savings
banks there , which are now paying out their
Bcml-annual dividends. A very small part of
the small notes , it is thought , were for ship
ment to the country. The transfer of SlOO-
000 to San Francisco is explained as being
duo to the action of the savings banks there.
They demanded the required sixty days'
notice from their depositors nnd then sent
on their securities to Eugene Kelly & Co. ,
for sale , to bo in readiness for the demand
upon them it it should be mail o at the r.\plrn-
tlon of the notice. Today's transfer is said to
bo on account of some of the securities sold.
The Clearing House loan committee met
this morning and n quorum of them , Mr.
Perkins and Mr. Nash , \vero in session until
midday. At that hour they had authorized
nn additional issue of $2,281,000 of loans ,
making the total amount now outstanding.
$21,015,000. From this increasing issue of
certificates It Is believed generally that it
will bo some months before call money can
bo obtainable as low as 0 per cent.

Tlio subtrcasury In this city was again a
collector at the Clearing House today , the
balance In its favor being § 141) ) . MO. 10. It war
also a creditor on Saturday for the first time
since August 17 , 1891. The fact was ex
plained on Saturday by the presentation
through the subtreasury of checks in favor
of the government for Interest * on Pacitlc
railway bonds held in the Pacific railways in
sinking funds. The credit balance today ,
however , wus said to bo duo to tlo ) fact
that some banks having largo cheeks
on the treasury for interest on
"government bonds collected thcso checks
over the subtreasury counter Instead of
through the Clearing House und so get the
currency for the full amount. The banks

House and would not have got any of the
Practically , all the Clearing House bal
ances are now paid in Clcariui ; House loan
certificates as between the banks. The sub-
treasury , of course , pays and is paid In cash.
On Friday 70 per cent of the Clearing House
balances was paid in loan certificates , and
on Saturday 85 per cent was so paid. Prac
tically , all the banks in the Clcarincr House
have now taken out loan certificates.
Those which have not been creditors to
the Clearing House , have received sufil-
clent certificates In payments of these bal
ances to cuaulo them to pay debtor balances
against them for the present. If they run ,
short of certificates so received they will 1
take out some themselves , rather than de
plete their cash by paylmr Clcanng House
balances in currency or gold. Notwithstand
ing the fact that two banks , the Chemical
and the Importers and Trailers , at first re
fused to'tako out any certificates , they arc
In complete accord with the Clearing House
committee , and , as a reporter was informed
today , they will take out certificates as aoon
as they are needed.
Wore Frlnndi Indeed.
In connection with the largo issue of cer
tificates last week , it became generally
known today that but for the prompt action
of sonio of the leading members of the Clear
ing House committee there would have beer
a dofnult in interest by ono well known rail
way company on Saturday. Ono of the besl
known railroad millionaires in this country

entire amount of $7,600,000 disbursed tiy tin

continued n month or moro , but the strin

have not taken up iho amounts duo on tin

Incitement for n Tlino Ituns Illuli but
Noon Hiiuildc' .
LnADViu.r ; , July 8. Before the hour of
opening of the local banks this morning nn
Immense crowd had gathered for n run on
the Carbonate and American banks. The
directors of each had long Deen anticipating
it nnd their managers had made such pru
dential preparations for the emergency as
was in their power. The Carbonate was
soon filled with an eager crowd of depositors ,
nil showing moro or less anxiety. The pay
ing teller handed out the funds as fast as
checks were presented , however , and the
process of disbursement went , steadily on
until near noon , when the demand for cash
at this Institution almost entirely ceased.
The only other Incident of the mor.ilng's
business was the frequent appearance ot the
bank's regular commercial customers with
deposits of sucli funds ns they had been nblo
to collect during the morning. Among this
class there was not manifest the slightest
uneasiness , nnd not a single bank was closed
by the withdrawal of funds.
President Doupan fit the Carbonate said :
'We ' have funds In our vaults to meet every
demand and all who wish tl clr money can
come and get It.1
At the hour for opening the American Na
tional bink the folio wing placard was posted
on the doors of the institution : ' 'Owing to
our inability to realize upon llrst-class se
curities , wo are compelled to suspend pay
ment for a few days. All depositors will Do
paid In full. "
At noon the following communication was
furnished , the directors signing it for publi
cation :

Mr. C. F. Meek of Color.ido Gives IIU
Vle\vg of ihu Situation.
Nr.w YOHK , July 3. Mr. C. F. Meek , presi
dent of tlio Colorado Fuel and Iron company ,
when asked for his views on the situation in
Colorado , said : "I believe the storm , which
is'at his height , will clear the financial at
mosphere and bring all interests together
for the establishment of n sound financial
the mines of Colorado and the north
west will run ns they have hitherto ,
and at a fair prollt. I look for
the rc-cstabllshnicnt of the mining
interests of Colorado in n very short
time , but for the present the agitation will
direct attention to the agricultural resources
oftho Btato. There is moro money made in
live stoctt and agricultural interests in Colorado
rado today than in Iho mines. The state has
moro and iron ore than any state in the
union , which forms a basis for legitimate en
terprises , with n market comprising nearly
all the lerritory west of the Missouri river.
No matter what is il ono -with silver , Colorado
- will still bo rich , if she has nothing but her
coal and iron.
' The agitation for the suspension of nt-
tachmcnt and execution laws has been car-
rled on by thoughtless people who have
neither propcrtyiior financial responsibility
of any nature , out Colorado is dominated by
conservative and honoralilo people who will
bo the last in the union to repudiate their
honest debts and obligations. It is true the
very suggestion of suspension of laws for the
enforcement of contracts will injure Colorado
to Dome extent , but the pcoplo who have in
terests sunieiont to consider tlio matter at
all , will realize that It was merely an out
burst of an clement that exists in every state
In the union , and which is always irrespon
sible. Hcjllziug this , Investors will go on
Uoing business with the good und honest
people as they have in the past. "

Special to TUB BEE. I The students' riot
this evening is assuming n serious character.
The cavalry has been obliged to charge the
rioters in front of the prefecture of police
and nt the ministry of the interior. The
students are not only oxciteit to the hluucst
pitch , but Ihelr anger amounts to nbsoluto
fury aSamst the police. They have smashed
with stones the windows of the prefecture
of police , and demand the resignation of M.
Lozc , prefect of police , which , contrary to
rcrart current in the uf tcrnon , has not been

The cause of the trouble is the death of a
ship clerk named Nargcr , who wus killed on
Saturday evening during a police charge ,
whllo ho was drinking In n cafe situated
along the route of the manifestation got up
by the students against Senator Bermger ,
who made a motion asking for the repres
sion of the obscene license of the press.
Jtunily lor Almost Anything.
This death has exasperated the students ,
who slnco then have been simply boiling
over with excitement. This afternoon they
made a manifestation in front of the Clmiu-
bcr of Deputies , throwing sous at the mem
bers who passed nud shouting "Hero's for
Panama. "
The funeral of Nargcr takes place tomor
row , and the students propose on this occa
sion to make n monster manifestation. This
causes no little fear lor the public peace , and
it is to bo hoped that the govern
ment will not send out the police ,
otherwise n collision which may lead to
bloodshed is inevitable. A number of per
sons have been wounded on both sides dur
ing the encounter between pohco and
students which took place this evening.
These disturbances cairfiot lead toany seri
ous or immediate results , but they are a
proof of the tension which exists In the rela
tions between the police and the public , and
this may give rise to serious results during
the electoral period which will shortly open.
The government , which is also not a little
annoyed by the strike of the cabmen and by
the unauthorized syndicates , cannot bo said
to bo on a bed of roses.

Itloody Aflniy.
PAIIIS , July 3. On Saturday last an affray
occurred between the police and a number of
students in the Latin quarter. The students
Who lodge there determined to lay the facts
in the case before the government and to ob
tain satisfaction for what they
deemed the arbitrary and overbear
ing conduct of the police. When the
Chamber of Deputies met today students
to the number of 1,000 proceeded to the
executive building and sought to gain admis
sion. The ofllcialsof the Chamber , fearing a
riotous demonstration , gave orders to close
the gates to prevent their ingress. After
considerable parleying , during which the
students expressed thcmsovcs very freely ,
the whole number was admitted * to
the Chamber. The spokesmen of the stu
dents were accorded ahearing by the
Chamber. They stated the facts In the case
ns they appeared to them , and declared that
their only object in coming to the Chamber
wus to urge the deputies to support a motion
censuring the government , which was to bo
offered by M.Milloraud. M.MIllerand submit
ted his motion , asking the house to ccusuro
the government for Its connection with
the affray , and the debate is still proceed
M. Lozo prefect of police , has resigned his
ofllco because , as ho believes , the govern
ment Is disposed to make a scapegoat of him
in the matter.
In speaking on his motion , M. Millcrand
maintained that the police had brutally as
saulted a number of persons , who were sim
ply looking at the struggle between the
students and the gendarmes ,
M. Dupuy deprecated the discussion ns
premature , adding that a stringent inquiry
was proceeding into the facts Df the case.
The order of the day , expressing the trust
that the government would do its best to
punish the guilty ofilccrs , was llnally adopted
by the Chamber.
Efforts are now being made to induce M.
Lozo to reconsider his resignation. At 0:30 :
o'clock this evening 2,000 students sur
rounded the prefceturo of police , jeered the
olllctals and threw stones through the win
dows. While the police were preparing to
, charge the mob upset all the booths in the
neighborhood and smashed the street lamps.
The charge of the police was resisted stub
bornly. The students fought back with
, clubs and stones. In the light several stu
dents wore wounded and two policemen
stretched unconscious on the pavement.
Tlio second charge resulted in more in
juries on both sides , but the students were
driven back aliout llfty or sixty yards. After
the third charge had been repulsed the stu
dents marched , singing and shouting , to tha
Place St. Michael , The police retired and a
call for cavalry was sent out from the sta
tion. The students were rioting in the
lioulovard St. Michael at 7 p. m.
The Immediate cause of the riots today
was the death of M. Neugcr , a student who
was Injured mortally by the police in their
encounter with the students on Sunday. A
disorderly demonstration will bo made ,
probably , by the students at Neuger's
Whipped the 1'ollco.
The cavalry called out to drive the stu
dents from the neighborhood of the paluli
'do justice and the prefecture do police returned
turned to its barracks after the mob had re
treated to the Boulevard St. Gannuluo. 3d
mob then hurried back to the lioulovarc
St , Michael and across the bridge to tin
Uoulovard du Palais between the arms
of thu river. The students siimshci
with their clubs and a hcavj
piece of timber the massive door ;
of the Palais do Justice and knocked tin
glass out of all the ulndows within reach
The police hastened to the spot and chargei
with drawn swords. The rioters overcami
them , tore their swords from their hand :
and drove them back to the Hotel Dleu. Several
oral policeincu werp cut severely with th
swords which the students had takci
from" them. Three ? of the police
men have been taken to the hos
pituls. A dozen other policemen wer
also injured with clubs. Ono oollcoimui wa
caught by the students , stripped of hide
do tiling nnd carried 10 the river , Ho beggci
the students , on his knees , not to throw hie
in and was eventually releaseu by them.
The republican guards were called ut'mid
night. The students retreated down th
Boulevard St. Michael as the guards nj
preached and disappeared shortly before
y. o'clock. The guards remained stationed n
tie the bridge to prevent the return of an
rioters to the Palais do Justice.

NEWI-OUT , U. I. , July 8. The United States
torpedo station is on ifirc.
The flro at the torpedo station was In the
gun cotton factory , 'Work was at once begun
removing the largo .quantity of gun cotton
contained in the building to n place of safety.
Before the work was entirely completed ,
however , the lire reached part of the gun
cotton and an explosion followed , killing two
men and injuring three others.
The killed are : Frank Ixmghltn and Jere
miah Harrington , agcd > U7 and SB years re

of the injuries sustained by these three are
not known. A number sustained injuries of
a minor nature. Thu gun cotton factory is a
wreck. .
No reliable estimate of the money value of
the plant Is yet obtainable.
How the tire originated is still n mystery.
The explosion did not take place until after
a general alarm had been rung in by the
station flro alarm nn'd the whole llro force of
nearly 100 men was' gathered closely about
the building. The ( Ire started in the north
end of the building on the west side , whllo
the explosion occurred on the cast side at
the north end.
The injured men were all working upon a
hose close to the building , when apparently
the whole side was blown out into the mlil-
dlo of a score of men. How the others es
caped Is a mystery. The seamen and gun
ners were ut work in the center of the oulld-
Ing , throwing out run cotton , there being a
Inrgo quantity of It in a wet condition.
They naturally deserted the building , and
by order of Captaiti.Converso all lay undeir

factory from whcnco they directed feeble
streams toward , the burning structure ,
which was allowed burn itself out ,
The flro equipment was "riot"suitlUilo to

was not prepared to respond to such a call.
Several who receivcd.lesscr injuries came to

Fatalities and Accidents in Which Powder
and Water Figured Extensively ,
IJrngRcd to Hit Dentil In tlio Itlvor Andrew
Schldo Accidentally Shooti l.lttlo Jerry
i Several ArcldotitH Cnusotl
by rirccrnckors.
Andrew Schido , who tends bar for Fred
Dahlman , nt , Eighteenth and Lcavcnworth
streets , stepped out of iho saloon last night
with a gun in his hand.
Ho ilrcd several shots into a bank of dirt
across the street. A group of young boys
and girls were shooting off lire-crackers near
by and Schido pointed the gun In the dlicc-
tlon of the group. Ho pulled the trigger.
The weapon exploded with a loud report and
little Jerry Qululan fell to the ground with
an ugly looking wound In the pit of his right
arm. At a late hour last night the little fol
low was believed to bo dying. The affair
was accidental so far as can bo learned , and
Shldo was wandering around in the dark
ness In n crazed condition after the occur
rence. *
With the near approach of the Fourth of
July the youths residing in the vicinity of
Eighteenth street began to celebrate
the day of liberty in ndvanco by
firing off crackers and rotnan candles.
They were having a great time at
the corner of Lcavcnworth street , and
while they were shouting their approval of
some particularly loud report , Schido , who
Jiad Just been relieved of his duty in the
saloon , picked up a loaded revolver and ,
going out doors , began to shoot the bullets
into a clay bank across' the street.
Thought It Wnmi't Landed.
Ho thought ho had shot all the loaira out
of the gun and then ho pointed the gun at
the children and snapped It with the a Dove
results. Ho says he thought that he had
emptied the gun and did not realize what ho
had done until little Jerry fell to the ground
and the other boy began to cry that ho was
Schido then went Into the saloon and gave
the gun to Dahlman saying he had shot a boy.
The man was much excited and tried to re
gain possession of the weapon , saying that
ho would kill himself. Ho did not succeed
and disappeared out of the back door.
These who know him fear that ho
will commit suicide out of remorse. Schido
is said to bo a sober , Industrious man , be
tween 50 and 00 years ot age , and ho has al
ways been a favorite with the children in
the neighborhood. The police are looking
for him. but early this morning had not lo
cal Dd him.
The wounded boy is the 12-year-old son of
P. L. Quinlau , who resides at 80T South
Eighteenth street. When ho was shot his
father was sitting close to him and ho
picked his boy up , carrying him to a drug
store close by. Seeing that the boy was
badly injured he took him to his home ,
which is just around the corner , and Dr.
Itosowntor was called in. The doctor ex
amined and dressed the wound and pro
nounced it a serious , it not fatal ,
case. Dr. Parker was also called and
after n consultation it was decided
not-to attempt to locato'tho bullet. The ball
took a downward course and entered the
right lung , but did not cause hemorrhage.
The boy-suffered the intense pain with great
.fortitude , but , it i $ , thought that bo. ; was ,
bleediutr internally and that ho "will'hardly'
live until daylight. His parents , who have
had several misfortunes with their children
recently , are almost distracted with grief ,
for Jerry was the pet of the family.
liny KIser's Ilnlloon-Asccnulou and tlio
Futiil KoBtilt.
Kay Elser , the daring young aeronaut ,
made his last ascension-last night. Ho now
lies in the Missouri river , where ho dropped
to his death at 8:35 : p. in.
At 8:30 : Elser made ono of his usual ascen
sions nt Courtland beach under the auspices
of Gould & Gribblo. As the balloon shot
upwards amid the shouts of a largo crowd ,
young Elser cast a farewell look and smiled
at the immense throng , little thinking that
in a few minutes ho would bo In the cold em
brace of death.
After the balloon had risen to a height
of 300 feet it drifted over toward the river.
Elser's usual custom is to make a parachute
jump from this distance , and ho ut once
prepared to do so. To the horror of the
crowd , the * balloon commenced to collapse ,
and it was plainly evident that Elser was
having difllculty in getting the parachute
loose from the sldo of the balloon ,
The balloon was soon directly over the
river and descending rapidly. Elser became
entangled in the ropes. Death stared him
in the faco. The airship quickly dragged
him to his death. Ho struck the river and
after hopelessly struggling for life sank
from view.
An effort was made to find the body , but
up to n late hour it had proven an unsuccess
ful undertaking. The oalloon which made
the fatal trip Is ono of the largest airships
over seen in this section , having SM yards
of canvas and when mllutcd measured 08x53
Ilay Elser , the victim of the fatality , was
n young' roan 23 years of age. Ho cnmo
hero from a farm in the interior of this state
some time ago , Hcccntly ho signed a con
tract with Gould & Gribblo to make ascen
sions , after acquiring a brief knowledge of
the parachute profession. This was his
seventh ascension. Ho made hls'Inltial as
cension In Omaha last Thursday at Court-
land beach. The utmost regret is expressed
by the management at the sad termination
of last evening's program.

"Wo were quarreling because my husband
would not go to uork , " said the woman.
"Ho is a barber and works on Saturdays
and Sundays , but don't try to secure regular
employment. After a short altercation
tonight ho knokcd mo iown nnd kicked mo
in the face , saying ho would kill mo. Ho
locked the doors and put the keys in his
pockets so 1 could not escape. If the ofllcorH

Lost mi iyc. :
Should ho survive , there is a 0-year-old
lad , the son of B. Y. Yoder , residing at 170S
North Eighteenth street , In this city , u ho
will go through life as a horrible example of
the force of n cannon cracker nnd the 117th'
birthday of American liberty. The lad com
menced his cclcoratlon at an early hour last
night , a bunch of cannon crackers assisting
him in the laudable enterprise of
making the old eagio scream. Two
or thrco of the explosives had been success
fully touched off and everything had gene
well. When the next cracker exploded the
evening air was rent in twain and the boy
was thrown into the breach. Kind hearted
parents gathered him up from the dust and
smoke and sent for a doctor to take an ac
count of stock of the injuries. Upon arriv
ing the medical man found a badly burned
face , with an eye partly detached and hang
ing on the cheek.
Minus a I'tuser.
A colored youth of tender years , with a
hugo Tire cracker and dauntless patriotism ,
is minus a finger on his left hand , Ho toyed
too long with the cracker after the fuse was
lighted , and it exploded with the result men
tioned. The accident occured on Capitol
avenue , between Tenth and Eleventh
streets , early last evening.
