Rank Deposits Decrease.
For only the second time in eighteen
years the . IMcember half yearly return
of Irish bank deposits shows a decrease,
and not. since 1885 has 'there been auch a
decline recorded aa In the December half
of last year. . The ' decrease amounts to
$(.400,000, while bank - note circulation Is
down by tt.VWO In 1S04. It Is evident
that the extraordinary depression In tha
Irish cattle trade Is making Itself felt In
the -banks. On the other hand there la
a a advance of 12,000,000 in aavlnga bank
deposits, which go on growing even through
the most depressed Industrial seasons. Tho
rate of Inereane has. however, fallen seri
ously since ISM. when It waa $4,000,000, an
Increase almost equal to the total addi
tions for the last two yeara.

LONDON, June . (Special Cablegram to
Tho Bee.) The prices of Cornish tin stands
higher than ever and the rise haa caused
a wave of excitement throughout corn-
Ten years ago the price of Cornish tin
was K8t a ton, now it Is being estreny
bought for f 1.000.
The price has Jumped up some 1100 per
ton In the last month without any specu
lative manipulation, and mines that were
unquotable a few months ago are now
being bought . wholesale, not only locally,
but In London and Paris. There have
been various mysterious rushes for cer
tain shares, which make experts suspect
that syndicates are at work.
The Industry the oldest in England has
been practically moribund for many yeara.
but the sudden rise In the value of tin Is
causing a spasmodic anxiety to open up all
the disused workings sgain.
Indeed, Cornwall has not been In such
a state of bustle for many years, and the
excitement haa loosened the miners'
tongues. This proves how great it must
be, for tho Cornlshman la characteristically
distrustful and silent.
! On a bold and desolste spur of the coast
Is the famous Levant mine, which descends
to a depth of Son fathoms and runs up be
neath the sea for more than a mile. One
of the officials there ssld;
. "How much higher the price of Cornish
tin Is likely to, go It Is impossible to say."
There sre signs that the advance will not
only continued,' but be maintained. .
"Most of the mines that were closed
down ten years ago, because of the poor
price for tin, would be well worth opening
up sgaln. but during the long period of
depression from which Cornish mining has
been suffering the great bulk of our mlnera
went to South Africa and Australia, where
they now esrn good wages by digging
gold. There la barely sufficient skilled
labor in Cornwall to work the. big mines
to their full capacity, without .being called
upon to open up the hundreds of disused
"Last year the total of the world's pro
duction of tin was S7.000 tons. About 7.000
tons came from Cornwall," he contlned,
"The great bulk comes from the Straits Set
tlements, and the explanation given for
tha present high price of the ore is that
tho supply from the esst has not kept pace
with the world's demands. The United
States alone Is bidding twelve months
ahead for the entire output from the
Straits Settlements.
; "There should be a great revival of the
ancient prosperity of the Cornish tin In
dustry, for Cornish tin Is the finest-In tile
world and the country Is streaked with
It.' from Dartmoor-to I -end's End. The
old delusion thst - c mines cannot be
profitably worked will soon be a thing of
tha past."
A well known American- engineer, who
lately visited tho Carnbrea district, said
that wore the Cornish mining fields situa

! CAIRO, JunO . (Special Cablegram ta
tho Bee.) It is rumored that Mukhtar
Pasha, the" Imperial Ottoman commis
sioner, has been summoned to Constanti
nople by the Sultan, who Is said to be de
sirous of conferring with his excellency on
the future relations of Turkey and Egypt
What will come after Tabah la now the
question of the moment In Egypt. In the
Opinion . of the majority Tabah Is only
an incident In a complex question which
began when the Ixmdon congress of 1841,
by removing southern Syria from Egyptian
Jurisdiction, opened to the Turks or other
enemies ot Egypt the road which delivered
Egypt to the soldiers of Cambyoe In
ancient times. The Irade of 1891 stripped
such morsels aa Nuellah, Da bah. El Wsdlg
and tho fortress of Akabah from Egypt's
territory. British diplomatists at that time
scarcely realised that those places were the
key ot Egyptian defense.
: A rar-aeeing party in Egypt advocates
the occupation of Akabah as the only
lasting solution. ' It has, It Is true, be
longed to Turkey for fourteen yeara, but
prior to 1SSS it belonged to Egypt for forty-
seven years and more. The uaa of force,
this party contends, would be Justified,
for though Turkey must in the present
Instance yield to International pressure,
and retire from Tabah, the Ottoman
theory of suzerainty over the peninsula
will remain to cause future trouble aa the
natural expansion of Turkey and Egypt
drawa them nearer to the point of conflict.
So long a Akabah and other fortresses
of Sinai remain Ottoman stronghold
Egypt Is perpetually exposed to danger.

MADRID, June . (Special Cablegram to
Tho Bee.) If It had not been for the ab
sorbing Interest in the marriage of the
king Of Spain and Princess Bna of Batten
berg, Spain would have sooner faced Its
cabinet crisis. For this country Is In con
siderable difficulties about Its new tariff,
which was Intended to come into operation
on July 1 next, but which is being as
sailed with opposition on all sides. This
revised tariff was drawn up for the Cortes
by what waa supposed to be a mixed com
mittee, but which was chiefly composed of
government officials, high protectionists
and representatives of Industries that are,
or wish to be, protected.
The few free traders and representatives
of consuming Interests on the committee
had no Influence and practically all the
witneases who were examined were pro
tectionists. As a natural consequence the
revised tariff provides for large Increases
of duties on Imports of all foreign indus
trial commodities and agricultural products,
but It also levies high duties on tho raw
materials of Spanish Industries and on
such Items as chemicals snd machinery,
which Spain does not yet produce, though
It hopes to do so. As examples of tha new
tariff coal may be taken, on which the
duty remains at 2.60 pesetas per ton, while
the duty on coke and coal dust is raised to
4 pesetas. The duty on cement, which Spain
doea not and cannot make, la raised from
20 to 60 pesetas. The tax on linen yams,
which Spain may want to, but does not
yet produce, are raised from 70 to 100 per
cent above present duties, and similar Jute
yarns are raised 70 per cent. AH protests
against the proposed new duties hsd to be
lodged before the end of April, but tha
opposition csmpslgn la still being carried
on. ,
Fear Hlaher Cast at l.lvlag.
The democratic papers throughout ths
country have taken tho tariff to pieces, and
show how It must inevitably greatly In
crease tho cost of living to both the work
ing and the middle classes. They have
shown, too. that exorbitant duties are lm
posed, on the products of' Industries that
never have succeeded nor never can sue
oeed in 'Spain. - Latterly tha chambers, of
commerce and associations of merchants
have taken up the tale, ana in addressing
the government have contended that not
only will the tariff Increase the cost, of
living in Spsin.' but-It will spoil Its for
etgn trade. Thla contention a In harmony
with the representations when tho . gov
ernment has receved from various foreign
governments. . ' .
The Spanish government assumed that
the revised statute could be fixed as
basis for negotiating treaties of commerce
to take the place of the conventions based
upon the Swiss-Spanish treaty of 1S86
which expires at. tha end of June, but
Germany and Swltserland have Intimated
that if the revised tariff to come Into
force on July 1 la to be the basis. of nego
tiations they will, on their pert, have to
adopt tsrlff reprisals on the products of
the' mines and the soil, which are prac.
tlcaliy the only exports of Spain. . These
Intimations have very much disturbed the
protectionist ministry at Madrid, snd their
latest move has been to ask the several
powers to lodge their objections to the
new tsrlff before a committee which the
Cortes has appointed to consider, and, If
deemed necessary, to modify the proposed
new duties. Moreover, tha government has
announced that It has power to alter the
Schedules of the revised tariff as late aa
during ths whole of the month of June,
and can eyen alter the alterations that the
committee makes.
The present situation la therefore, very
perplexing, for no one knows what the
revised tariff may turn out to' be before
the old tariff expiree on June X). In the
meanwhile, however, the Madrid govern
ment Is assiduously pursuing or Inviting
negotiation with foreign governments for
either new treaties of commerce or some
modus vlvendl until tha tariff matters are
definitely arranged to replace the conven
tions now drawing to a close. As these
negotiations sre not In the hsnds of the
tariff Junta, but of -a special committee.
It Is possible to foresee not very harmoni
ous results.

LONDON. June (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) London 'has Just witnessed a
brilliant revival of the old-fashioned Joust
and tourney in connection with the naval
and military tournament.
In none of the dlsplaya of modern times
has such an elaborate and gorgeous spec
tacle been attempted as li e great pageant
of ' the preaent tournament, "Tilting In
Tudor Times." During Its presentation
tha arena was one blase of brilliant, mov
ing color. First, rsme the lord of tha
tournament, with his: banner and heralds,
tha latter In their glld-bralded tunica, mak
ing a brave show. After the lord presi
dent had taken hta aeat on the rrimeon
covered data, the standards of the four
competing knighta were paraded, snd then
followed the knight marshal and his depu
ties, squires, pages snd escorts.
The four knighta. mounted and encaaed
from head to foot In armor, riding beneath
silken canopies held by. sttendanta In gor
ge ua raiment, then entered, and were fol
lowed each by a number of, armed men.
A tour of ths arena having been mads, tha
lord of the tournament signified his pleas
ure that ths Jousting should begin.
The trumpeters sounded a fanfare, and
two knights from opposite end of the
lists, rode at full gallop, with lances
couched, to meet each other. Lances
were' shivered on steel breastplate or hel
met amid ths eheera of the adherents of
ths successful knight, and whan tha winner
of tha bout had been declared, ths re
maining knighta entered tho combat.

Egypt Adds ta Kaswledgc
af Last Gospels.
CAIRO, June 9. (Special Cablegram ta
The Bee.) Once more Dr, Orenfell and
Dr. Hunt have made valuable dis
coveries in the mounds of Oxyrhyncue,
quite equal In Importance to those which
so fascinated the world of scholarship nine
years ago. The Egyptian exploration fund
has dona wonders already, especially in
reference to those so-cailed -"Loga the
sayings of our Lord" one of which at
least has a strange and unique value.
In 1897, out of a mass of papyri dug out
of the ruins of Oxyrhyncus, which was
One of the chief early Christian centers
of Cairo, waa extracted a fragment con
taining eight sayings of the Lord. What
exactly they constituted haa been much '
debated by scholars since. Ha mack main
tains that they come from The lost "Gos
pel of the Egyptians;" others suggest that
they are excerpts from a primitive gospel
probably written In Hebrew In the first
instance; while others, again, speak of
them as though they formed part of. a
sort of original nucleua of the four can
onical gospels. Most ot the eight "say
ings" added little or nothing to the Bib
lical lore of the world, but the one num
bered five was of first rate Interest and
importance a strange text In which Christ
ys, "Raise the stone and thou Shalt find
Me; cleave the wood and there am I."
To these "sayings" Is now added a fresh
nd tilghly interesting contribution.
Amongst the newest finds ot Drs. Orenfell
and Hunt Is a vellum leaf, forty-five lines
In all, from the manuscript of a lost gos
pel. The subject, sccording to the latest
details, is a visit of Jesus, with His dis
ciples, to tiie Temple of Jerusalem, and
an encounter with a Pharisee. The Pharl-
aee rebukes Christ and Ilia followers be
cause they have omitted the necessary
and proper ceremon'nl of purification be
fore entering the holy place. Christ replies
with a discourse on the difference between
the external and Internal purity. This, of
course. Is not dissimilar from the gospels
of Matthew -and Luke. In the new frag
ment there are several words not found
In the New Testsment, while the writer
displays a considerable familiarity with
Jewish customs, snd also with the topog
raphy of the Temple of Jerusalem. The
nature and value of the gospel from which
thla passage comes, however, is not known.
nor can more be said on tha subject until
the fresh Oxyrhyncus papyri are published
next year. This is not the only valuable
element In the new discoveries. There
la a fragment from Pindar a novel
form of composition for the Theban bard,
for it consists of odes of supplication or
thanksgiving, addressed to a god, snd not
a paean, such as those with which all are
familiar, In honor of some athletic victor.
There is also a psrt of a tragedy on the
subect of 'hypelpyle, supposed to be by
Euripides; and. strangely enough, a part
of a new history of Greece has been un
earthed, which. It la hoped, will throw
fresh light on the Peloponneslan war.
Some of these manuscripts, dating from tha
second or third century, but thrown away,
apparently. In the fifth century, belonged,
It la clear, to an owner ot a library, and
amongst them are fragments of Sappho
and Bacchylides.

GLASGOW, June (.(Special Cablegram

In its report to the forthcoming genersl

Ject. of the royal marriage:
A long Interval of 360 yeara. so pro
tracted owing to the previous deplorable ex
perience of royal alliance with the Spanish
nation, ends with the papalixlng of a
princess of our royal house, aa the necea
aary preliminary to her betrothal to the
king of Spain. That It is done tinder tho
highest sanction goes without saying, as
well that it la meant to bear reference t-
the coronation OHth and royal declaration,
whose archaic severity -wss determined by
its framera in the presence of the condi
tions which compelled them to see and
feel. A very distinguished representative
of the Irish Presbyterian church wrltea In
reference to Princess Ena's formula of
sdjuratton, which would be Included but
for the unreasonable lengthening of our
report: "It seems to be specially haughty
snd offensive, and no doubt It la meant to
be a Roland for the Oliver of the king's
oath." It cannot be that the archbishops
and dignitaries of the Church of England
are In sympathy, after the humiliating re
buff administered eight yeara sgo by the
late Leo XIII. on application to have their
orders recognised, that "their bishops were
a disorderly and lawless crowd, apart from
subjection to the successor of St. Peter."
When will the great Episcopal church of

(From a 8taff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, June . (Speclsl Tele-
gram.) Whatever is to be done in relation
to securing an inspection of meat products
that will satiafy the public and allay agita
tion must be done quickly. Is the story of
today's proceedings before the house com
mittee on agricuture.
Judge S. H. Cowan of Texaa, a representa
tive of the live stock interests, in his pre
sentation of the case today before tho
committee, while doubting the constitution
ality of the Beverldge amendment, waived
it off by the statement that It was not a
question of constitutionally that was moat
needed, bnt it was a question of having
the subject once and for all settled along
right lines. He said the question of coit
was secondary and subordinate to the main
proposition that meat inapectlon should be
such as to command the confidence of tha
consumer, both at home and abroad.
Plan for Mcetlaaj Coat.
Incident to his presentation of the live
stock interests, he made a suggestion as
to the matter of the cost of the inspection
which seems to find consldersble favor, not
only with the committee, but with many
members of congress as well. That sugges
tion wss that the agricultural appropriation
Wll, now In conference, shall carry a suffi
cient amount to cover the eost of Inspec
tion during the fiscal year, say C.000,000,
and then provide In the bill that If at any
time the appropriation falls short of tha
eost of Inspection tho secretary of agricul
ture shall have the power to fix fees and
collect the cost of the said inspection from
the packers direct.
Thin, it is believed, will Interest the stock
raisers and others to see to It that the
committee on agriculture would make the
appropriation sufficient in amount to cover
the cost of Inspection. There Is a decided
sentiment in congress against leaving to
the Department of Agriculture ths right
to put In sny number of Inspectors at the
same time it haa tho. right to fix fees. If
It. should be decided that the government
should psy the cost of the Inspection then,
members insist, ' eong" sg should fix the
rata per head. ,
Secretary ftars LeeUk,loa la Nseded.
Senator Millard today received a letter
from the aecretary of agriculture in reply
to a request that the secretary Would an
nounce publicly that Inspection of meat
products for the export trade Is being made
under law. Secretary Wllso: in ' his reply
to the request Of Senator Millard saya:
"We have been Inspecting meats for ex
port carefully and sufficiently, but we have
not had Jurisdiction of all Interstate meat
shipments. The only statement that will
quiet the minds of the people and help
cattlu growers and packers snd bankers
and all those who are appealing to you by
telegraph Is the enactment of thorough
going legislation.. When thst is done I
can make a atatement, pointing to It and
assuring the people of the thoroughness
of inspection under pending . legislation."
Nebraska Reaolatlona Are Presented.
Judge Klnkald 'today, by direction ot
the Nebraska Stock Growers' association
which was In session at Alliance yesterday,
presented the resolutions adopted In rela
tion to the Investigation and report ot con
ditions surrounding packing house products
snd Its recommendations to members of tha
delegation today, and later filed the resolu
tions in the form of a petition. The reso
lutions are as follows, after a preamble:
Realising that speedy action Is neceaaarv
if further damage is to be averted, hereby
urge our national congress and especially
the Nebraska members thereof to naas such
legislation as will improve and strengthen
government Inspection of all packing house
meat producta and that will prescribe and
enforce such sanitary regulatlona for
Dacklng houses as will leave no room for
criticism ot tneir metnoaa.
We as cattle growers recommend tho
