Omaha wns honored yesterday vrlth a
brief visit from Hon. Henry M. Teller , sen
ior United States senator from Colorado.
Ho Is also ox-secretary of tbo Interior nnd a
gentleman of international renown ns an ml-
vocatoof tbo free coltugo of silver. Ho
passed through the city yesterday on his
way homo from a brief visit to the World's
fnlr. Ho also visited his moUicr nt Morri
son , 111. The silver champion wns caught nt
the union depot In the nftcrnoon
by n Hen representative , whoso ob
ject was to got the senior senator
from Colorado to talk on the present agita
tion of silver.
The senator docs not readily como out of
his shell , but once started ho Is ono of the
best men In tbo country to Interview. The
man who rounded him up at the dci > ot yes-
tordny , nftcr once getting him started , had
nothing to do but listen to Senator Toller's
remarks. The senator is authority on silver
nnd needs no questioning.
\Vliero to flct llld'of Silver.
"I've just como from a very profitable visit
to the World's fair , " said the senator , "and
am on my wny home. 1 bad a few days
to sp.iro .from business , and 1 improved
them to the best advantage by taking in tbo
exposition. It's certainly a great show a
great show. Why. n man might spend thrco
months there and then not see half of It.
Hoists Colonido'H Iturclinril.
7 "As to the silver question everybody hns
heard plenty concerning it , of late. That
Coloradoans In general do not endorse the
rabid frothiugs of Governor Walto , Mr.
Holdon and one or two others , ought to go
without saying. I did not attend the silver
convention , and it Is as well , no doubt , that
J did not. While Governor Waito's red flag
remarks .havo not been productive of any
Croat damage , 1 do not doubt that before
very long they will bo on record in eastern
fTfmoney markets , and wo shall reap tno
XT resultant whirlwind. While there have
been only two or three largo failures In
Denver thus far , and while we are yet in
bolter financial condition than the calamity
ihoutcrs are willing to admit , it is by no
means certain that Colorado is not going to
bo struck hard by the provalllng financial
distress within n short tlmo. "
Some houis previous to Senator Teller's
remarks , thrco Denver banks had closed
their doors , but ho did not know It.
"Tho condition ofattaira in Colorado , " con
tinued the senator , "is bad enough , yet it
might bo worse. Wo might bo without
other resources than stiver mining , but were
ro far from that. No state in the union
has moro varied , resources .than Colorado ,
and If'qtfier.industrlcs were half HS well 'de
veloped ns silver mining , wo would have no
fear for the future , and ns It stands , wo nro
not yet in what could reasonably bo termed a
"Ono thing tlntt helps us out Is our gold
production. For instance , there is my own
county of Gilpin , tbo star mining camp of
Colorado , Since this depression began wo
have produced Just as much gold as over , de
spite the fact that many of our largest and
best producing mines have been shut down.
Of course 'tho silver question is a vco
serious one with us just now , and n continu
unco of present financial conditions means
two or thrco years of hardship for Colorado
but Colorado will pull out all right in the
long rim , I doubt not. "
"What action will congress take , Sena
tor ? " was asked.
Touches Up the I'rcaldent.
. . * y "Presumably , tbo Sherman law will bo re
pealed , although Mr. Cleveland and Mr
Sherman will both , no doubt , como fortl
and reiterate their hackneyed statement
that they are 'blmotallists , ' nnd protest
against any such action as is contemplated
There Is a strong distinction between
Cleveland-Sherman 'blmotallist1 and the
genuine nrtlclo. The former believes In n
gold standard and in silver for subsidiary
* coinage. Can you call him a 'bimetallism as
u Is tbo bollover In an equal standard ?
\ _ "Now , there Is an error under which n
, great many persons In this country are la
boring , nnd that la the belief that the Sher
man law is responsible for all our present
troubles. It is all bosh to attribute financial
pressure to that source.
Shrrmiui l.i\v : Not Itospoiiilhlo.
"Tho Sherman act Is no more to blarao
for the present state of attnlrs than
I am. Why , Is it responsible- for
the recent financial disasters In Australia ?
Australia has dropped far harucr than this
country has , and so have several European
states , notably Austin-Hungary , Besides
tlicso , how about India and tlio South Amer
ican states ? Can the Sherman act bo hold
to account for their present difficulties ?
That's noiisenso , It Is the fact that condi
tions have been bad and growing worse-
thai ono of these perlodio.it crisis that can-
hot bo avoided is upon us hcnco the present
deplorable state of affairs in this and other
countries. It is something that cannot bo
prevented at this ago of tha world. Time
was , forty years aeo , before the days of gen
eral use of telegraph and steamships nnd
railroads , that such crises had not much
chance to arise. People had tlmo to cool
down before they got oxclted. As It is now ,
the world is really ono vast single com
munity , with common interests , and no
cornier Is one country a ( Tee tell than the news ,
llanhing over the wires , precipitates a serious
condition of affairs , If not an absolute panic ,
in another ,

"Tho main canso of local depressions is
the disinclination of bankers to lev go 3fs
moiiov. It appears ns though nowadays
money could not bo secured on anything , It
la a fact that United States bonds wcro
hawked In Wall street last week anu for the
first tlmo In years they wuro sold at a dis
count from standard prices , It was a case
of foivo ; their holders had to have money ,
nnd the way mutters stand today , u man
who oilers any less solid collateral security
than government bonds viands a poor show
of negotiating a loan ,
Hunker * hlmttuiivl Conllilnice.
"All this might have been averted if the
bankers had been able to comblno nnd give
rasy loans , thereby restoring confidence ;
but , of rourbo , that would bo Impossible.
Kvcry bank has been obliged to look out lo.or

If the K'Jld sUUiUV U > & W4Uur ilA.IV.HUMU. of
issuing bonds to make up tbo deficiency , a
peed deal of trouble might have been avoided.
As to the matter of rcdurln.tr thn
( XX ) gold suppiy , why. In IS'.U , In four months ,
thcro wcro expended ? r2.000,000 , and nobody
said a word , while In 1S'J3 , thus far , $ fi.1MX , ( ) ,

"This year Kuropo has hail to have pole" ,
and the main draft has been on this country ,
inasmuch as our imports have largely ex
ceeded our exports on certain products and
Kuropo will not accept the depreciated sil
ver dollar , notxvithstar.dlng that It has a
greater intrinsic value than any other silver
coin in the world. With tbo balance ot trade
In our favor , as It will soon be , the gold sup
ply in this country will increase. Hut mean
time had the administration taken the action
1 suggested to the secretary of paying all ob
ligations in gold , it would have gene far to
wards casing the financial markets and re
storing out credit abroad , and the natural
influx of the yellow metal would have kept
the supply up to the $100.000,000 mark without -
out the necessity of Issuing bonds. As It
stands now , the supply Is close on to JUS-
Ilopo Tor Itcllcl.
The senator talked hopefully ns to the
probable action of congress after repealing
the Shonnah law , arid said ho bollovod that
in spllo of the opposition of the administra
tion , something world bo done to ameliorate
tbo condition of the silver Interests , con
cluding with a few optimistic statements as
to the future of the great state ho repre

Interviews with n l''o\v or Them In New
NEW YoiiKJuly 17. President Haggcrnian
of the Molllo Gibson mine is in this city. Ho
says : "Tho report that thn Mollie Gibson
nitno has been flooded Is true only to the ex
tent of between the eighth and tenth levels.
It is a new portion of the mlno which has
never been developed. The pump on the
eighth level Is moro than able to keen the
mlno free of water above tbo eighth level.
The failure of the Denver banks has been
anticipated for the past two weeks and the
other banks have been getting themselves
into shape to meet any emergency. Gener
ally spoakiiig. although the conditions in
Colorado nro very bad , and men
are being thrown out of employ
ment and railroads are losing their
earnings , the state is as well able to take
care of itself as any other part of the coun
try. If wo have got to go through a period
of silver distress we can stand the racket as
well as any 0110. Tbo intemperate talk of
Governor Waite in the recent Denver con
vention is not approved by responsible people
in Colorado. "
"Tho action and utterances of Governor
Wallo In the silver mass meeting , " said ex-
Governor Cooper of Colorado today , "wero
ill-advised and have a tendency to U.inuigo
the silver causo. No person except ex
tremists endorse these views. While
wo believe in bimetallism nnd believe
in it honestly , we do not propose
to repudiate our debts. If the Sncrman law
should be repealed nnd silver should drop
seriously , 1 think many of the mines would
close. But we do not depend on silver min
ing solely. Among 01 r other great resources
are coal and coke , where largo quantities are
produced every year. Of course , the repeal
of the silver law would , for a time at least ,
depress business nnd throw thousands of
men out of employment. "
/Henry U.-Wolcott ofiColorado , brother of
Senator Edward O. Wolcott , " did not hosltato
to say that the sentiments voiced it ; the re
cent convention by three or four hot heads
did not reflect the feeling of the
people. These are some of Mr. Wol-
cott's expressions on the subject : "It
is natural that vro should desire
to receive the highest pnco wo can com
mand for our silver , but wo cannot expect
and , of course , it cannot bo , that silver
should bo maintained at a higher stardard
of value than is consistent with a sound
financial system , and by this I mean
ono that would command tbo conscience of
tbo entire people. Wo hope the united wis-
ctom of the country will adjust the matter so
that wo may continue to run our mines at a
profit , but if every silver uiino in Colorado
should close , I am prepared to say that there
are other resources in our state
that would occupy every citizen within
her borders ; yes , and a million besides. "
"What about Governor U'alto ? "
"Waitc was carried away by the thought
of 'blood up to the bridles' besides ho merely
demonstrates what political chance will defer
for the country occasionally. "

VAI.CTTA , Malta , July 17. The court mar
tial appointed to try Captain Maurice A.
Bourke , Staff Commander Hawkins-Smith
and the surviving ofllcers of tbo British bat
tleship Victoria , which was sunk In collision
with the British battleship Catnpordown on"
Tripoli , Syria , on Juno 23 , opened today upon
the Hlbornla , tlio flagship of Koar Admiral
Klchard E. Trace , admiral superintendent
ot the Malta dock yard.
AH the survivors were on board the HI-
bcrnla. The president of the court martial
is Vice AdmlralSIrMichaelCultnc-Soymour ,
of the cruiser Hawko , who succeeded Vlco
Admiral Sir George Tryon as commander-
In-chief of the Mediterranean squadron.
Ono of the witnesses today , in his own defense -
fenso , repeated tlio story of tbo accident
and said that ho and Staff Commander
Hawkins-Smith went to Vlco Admiral
Tryon's cabin and told how the vice
admiral , after having originally fixed
the six cable lengths to bo the
distance between the ships , agreed with the
suggestion of tha staff commander that It
should booight cablolcngths. Subsequently ,
when the signals wcro set the flags desig
nated six cable lengths and when the vlco
admiral's attention was called to thu fact
ho said they were to remain so.
Captain Bourke added that ho saw when
the ships began to suing toward each other
that there was not suillclent distance be
tween them to allow of the evolution ordered
and that ho asked permission to reverse the
port screw In order that the ships would
make a short turn. This was given him and
subsequently botti engines were ordered full
speed astern. It was too late , however , to
avert the disaster. The Victoria hnd turned
twelve or fifteen points when the Camper-
down struck her.
Captain Bourke described at length the
efforts made to save the ship after the col"
llsion , descriptions of which have heretofore
been published. Ho then stated that after
the conversation in the admiral's cabin Sir
George Tryon went out and sat on the stern
walk. Flag Lieutenant Gillford came to the
witness and said that the staff commander
had told him that "eight cables"
was to be signaled. Captain Bourke
reminded Vice Admiral Tryon that ho
certainly had said the distance ought to bo
moro than six cable lenirtbt. The admiral
turned to Lieutenant Gillford and said :
"Leave it at six. " Lieutenant Gillford then
loft the cabin. Captain Bourke and Vice
Admiral Tryon remained together.
Captain Bourke at first declined to say what
passed between them after Lieutenant Gill-
Tord left them. Then the witness called Sir
George's attention to the fact of the Vic
toria's turning in a circle of 800 yards. The
admiral replied : "Lot it remain at six
Captain Bourke then wont on deck.
- > Needed Greater Space to Turn.
Captain Bourke said he was at the top of
the chart house when tno llrst signals wcro
hoisted. He explained that the turning
diamoternt ordinary speed of both the Vic
toria and Cnmperdown was about 000
yards. Directly after the signal was hauled
down and the helm put over , the ship hav
ing swung about two points , bo told the
admiral that they would como very close to
the Campcrdown. Turning to his aide ,
Middy Lanyon , Captain Bourke ordered him
to take the Camperdown's distance. The
admiral , in tlio meantime , bad made no reply
to tlio captain's remark. Addressing Lanyon
again , lie said : "Wo hud better do some
thing. Wo shall come very close to the
All this time they were turning and the
captain again addressed the admiral re
peating quickly two or three times , "May I
go astern full steam , with the port scrowdi"
At last the admiral said yes. The order was
given and shortly afterwards tno captain
ordered both screws full speed astern
They had then turned eight points. The
time between the hauling down of the sis-
nal and the collision was three and u half
or four minutes.
The captain explained in detail the result
of the collision. After describing the
splendid behavior of the men and the
wonderful selfc-ontrol displayed by them
when they fell in on deck , Captain Bourke
said , ' ! believe the commander gave no
orders. J'jst ut the last Lieutenant Heath
gave the order to jump.
AVlieu Shu Struvk Itottom.
Ho thought the Victoria must have struck
bottom in going down bead llrst. The shock
of striking the bottom was so tremendous ns
to cause her boilers to go to pieces. Then
there came a great swirl of water , carrying
up spnrs and other wreckage which struck
the men In the water. Nobody know what
struck them. Some of tbo men must have
been caught by the ship when she turned
It Is reported that last January Admiral
Tryon issued an order to the effect that when
the literal obedience of a signal would cause
a disaster , the ofllcers in command of the
vessels Involved should act upon their own
responsibility to avoid the danger.

SoMiton , Slam , July 17. Troubles between
the French and Siamese on the Meklong
river continue. French marines attacked
and captured the forts at Donthano and
Tappam on the upper Mokloug , The
French lost six , killed and wounded. The
Siamese loss was heavy. A French mer
chantman , the Joan Say , was seized by
Siamese at the mouth of the Mcnani river
and sunk to block the channel. Thu crow
was badly treated and thrown Into prison at

PAUIS , July 17. The press of this city Is
most bitter against Great Britain for her attitude -
titudo in the Fraiico-Siamcso dispute. The

were repulsed with great loss , Ono of the
Annamites was killed.
A senii-oillcial note Is published today
denying the assertion that Franco has dis
avowed to the Siamese government the
action of Admiral Humiinn in causing gun
boats to ascend the Menam river and that
the commanders of lha gunboatts Comet and
Inconstant had exceeded their Instructions
in firing upon the Siumess at Paknum.

should insist that the treaties between
Franco nnd Uiani bo respected und that no
intervention on the part of a third power
should bo tolerated , In case it should be -

the House in order to discuss the
situation in Siam. Sir Edward ap
pealed to them 'not to discuss the

Britain to arrive at a paelllo solution of tlio

certain allied questions , especially the ques
tion ot Siamese independence. This state

MAXAHUA , Nicaragua ( vlaGalvcston.Tex ) ,
July 17. [ By Mexican Cable to the New
York Herald Special toTiir.Bii : : . ] Joaquln
Xarala , tlio most popular and nblo party
leader in Nicaragua , was by n unanimous
vote nominated for president at the meeting
ot loading men of the principal cities of the
republic , which was held hero to aid in re
organizing the government. Members of the
Junta government resigned In favor of Gen
eral Xar.ila , who Immediately took control of
the government nnd will continue at its head
until order is restored.
Salvador Mcchndo , to whom Sacaza sur
rendered authority under the treaty by
which the recent war was ended , is still n
prisoner in Leon , wbcro the revolutionists
have established their headquarters. His
absence made the election of a now presi
dent necessary. President Xarala will have
the united support of tbo progressive and
conservative parties. Members of the liberal -
oral party are divided. Several of them
have declared that they would support
General Xarala. Fifty leaders of that
party cast their fortunes with Xelaya , who
declared In favor of the Leon revolutionists ,
and went with him yesterday to Leon. It Is
nrobablc , however , that their trouble will
soon bo ended by President Zarala , who is
prepared to pursue a conciliatory course.
Not Anxious t 1'Iglit.
It is quite evident that the leaders desire to
avoid a conllict with anus. Meanwhile , ho
does not propose that revolutionists shall
gain revenue by collecting customs at the
port of Corionto , which has been sizccd by
them. A proclamation has been Issued pro
hibiting mail steamers from touching at Co
The steamer Victoria , which was sunk
during the late revolution , was raised yes
terday , and is now afloat. President Xarala
began operations by organizing a cabinet ,
which was announced today. It Is composed
of the following : Minister of statn , Ansoluio
11. IJivas : Minister of war and intoriorFrcd-
erico Alonzano ; minister of public works ,
Jose D. KoJrisruez ; minister of finances ,
Manuel Lacayo. General Airlez will remain
in command of the army.
Revolutionary troops are reported to bo
advancing toward Esteli and are expected to
make an assault upon the town. The garri
son there will bo ready to meet them. Gen
eral Gutcrriez with 203 soldiers were started
across the lake today to rciuforco tlio
garrison at Esteli , while tlio troops
stationed in JMatazalpa are being held
in readiness to aid in defending
the position if that should become necessary.
The governor of the dcpartment.vof , Xegovia
has asked Prescient Zarnla to arm these
who have voluiktcercd to light for the now
government. A general feeling of relief has
been shown since General Xarala assumed
control of the government.

July 17. [ By Mexican Cable to the New
York Herald Special to THE Bcc. ]
Admiral Wondeklolk's capture off Santa
Catharina was followed today by the sur
render of the Italia another Brazilian in
surgent steamer , to a Uruguayan gun
boat. This news has been received
officially at Montevideo , Uruguay , nnd
telegraphed hero by the IJcrald's corespond
ent. Before the ] capture of the Italia
was reported the Brazilian minister
had requested the Uruguayan government
to seize and disarm the revolutionists on
board of her. Now tlJTrt'sho'has boon cap
turcd it Is believed "that roqucsl will bo
complied with. The Italia was the consort
of the steamer Jupiter , commanded by Wan-
dclkolk , which blockaded thp part of 'Kio
GrandodoSul. When the Brazilian cruiser
Hemibllca appeared the two ships sailed
away. The Jupiter was overhauled by tbo
Kepubllca , as I cabled the Herald last night.
The captain of the Italia wipes out the in
surgent's squadron and forcea tiem ) again to
depend for success on their land forces.
Apparently undismayed by the loss of tlielr
navi , the land forces of the revolutionists in
Kio Grande do Sul have become moro or
ganized than over. Generals Saraiva , Tava-
rcz and Salgado have combined tbelr forces
and arc now besieging Yaguaron City. The
town Is well defended and its capture will bo
I'ho Brazilian legation at Montevideo to
day received ofllrial confirmation of the re
ported capture of the steamer Jupiter with
Wandelkolk on board , The cruiser Ilopub-
lica , which overhauled bor , is expected to
reach Kio Janeiro tonight with tbo prison

revolution in Kio Janeiro failed ,

FIEEAND POLICE BOABD.
Oespi-ruto Attempt to Smirrh the Stir of
The Board of Fire nnd Police commis
sioners last evening listened to charges
against Sergeant Ormsby and Patrolman
Drummy. Drummy was charged with
using profane language in the presence
of an inquisitive young man named Wilson.
Drummy was talking _ to tbo police
operator and ' "cussed" a little m a joking
way. The commissioners thought that llvo
days lay oft without pay would enforce
greater discipline and the oMcer will receive
the official edict today.
Tbo charge against Sergeant Ormsby
savors a good do.vl -'getting even" with
him by certain patrolmen whom bo has re
ported on different occasions for neg
lect of duty. With ono exception
the witnesses for the prosecution acknowl
edged that they did not like Ormsby and

Sergeant Ormsby was highly commended ,
by Chief Scavey and Captain Corraack , as
being one of the best ofllcers on the force.
The commissioners gave the evidence a
brief consideration and reserved their de
cision for ono week. Ormsby is charged
with using unbecoming language in address
ing Starkey , relative to some matters per
taining to tbo Police Hcllcf Fund association.
After hearing the evidence In the case a
complaint from one Frank Fisher
was read charging the ser
geant with maltreatment. It is
alleged that Fisher ii the follow who held
up and robbed Billy Dox some time ago. Ho
says Ormsby jerked him across the hall in
Iho jail. The source of this complaint was
given duo consideration. Then Officer
Edgehill , who has been reported by
Ormsby , filed a complaint of un
becoming language , which was not
conducive to good discipline on
the police force. Tlio complaint is dated
back several months. The commission will
hear tlicso complaints at their next meeting
nnd one of them expressed hlmsolf last night
by saying : "Thoro is nothing in tlicso
charges but spite work anil I don't think wo
oucht to take up our time being bothered
with them. "

The discrimination against Omaha has
been very mnrUoil In many particulars , not
withstanding that protests have been cn

100 , ! ! miles of road , and have opened up a
vast territory for the Jobbers by the develop ,

While Omaha has profited greatly by it ,
yet other towns liavo been enabled to enter
the territory and secure a fair percentage of
the trade that should have eomo hero. The
tarilt sheets of the Klkhorn and Sioux City
have permitted Sioux City , Atohlson , St. Joa
and Leavcnworth to enter on their llnca
without any distinction as to distance , wltli
tlio result that has been detrimental to the
jobbing interests ol this city. It simply
placed these towns on the S'lmo basis as
Omaha as regarded rates , being clearly a
discrimination in their favor.

The first of next month Is to brws about a

a goodly sbaro of tbo patron.tgo that those
towns have been receiving and Omaha Job
bcrs will reap tie ; benefits. In view of tha
fact that the mileage of these roads
represents 23 or til per cent ol
the mileage in the state , anj
step is an important one. It may result in ,
opening the o.yes of tlio other roads to tha
fact that they can fall in line with thosu
roads and attest their loyalty to the pcoplq
