He read letters laring upon the ques

ters Curler lengthily commented on
them. He contended that Blaine's
luuniiuiiicaiion to the British repre
dilative showed that the busi of nego

industry wan to preserve the species,
and thin woi apart from the question of
rights. Ir J Salisbury, Carter irther
contended, in his dispatches to ! mnce

ably and Ingeniously evaded rather than
answered Blaine's argument, thut pelagic
fishing was contra Ihjiio. At this point
Senator John T. Morgan, one of Hie ar
bitrators on the purt of the United
States, Inquired whether Canada had
approved the draft of the convention 1'
fore Salisbury had made his suggestion
relative to the 10-mile limit. Thin ques

Vahiiinoton, April 14. The Ore

dumps, ami there is little to cheer them.
They have U-en here for some time, and
yet very few plums have fallen. Sena
tor Mitchell has lieen receiving vact
quantities of applications from all
parts of the state, and has been filing
them. The outside office-seekers, how
ever, will not have the benefit of
a republican senator in this matter
very long, for Senator Mitchell goes
to Oregon in a few days. The ap
pointment of a minister to Turkey yester
day was a sore disappointment to Col.

applicant for the place. Kx-l'ostuiaster
Ivoby was also an applicant, but it is
understood that his friends are now
booming him for postniastcrof Portland.
The fight for the appraisership grows
very warm. Mrs. C. W. Johnston is
here, and is advocating the claims of
her husband for the place. There are
numerous other candidates, some w ith
good backing and others with only their
own applications and a few indorse

London, April VI. The English, Scot
tish Australian chartered bank has
failed, with liabilities amounting, it is
said, to XB.tKHi.OUO, or f-40,000,000. No
estimates of the assets has as yet been
made, but they are stipposed to be large.
The bank was incorporated by a royal
charter in IS.")-, and claimed to have a
paid-up capital of (KH),00 and a reserve
fund of XiilO.OOO. It transacted a bank
ing and exchange business between
(jreat Britain and the Australian colo
nies, and had large deposits. The only
reuson given for the failure is that there
has Wn for several weeks a steadily
increasing withdrawal of deposits.
Artrr Kieven Year.
In ISS'J II. M. Mead, an old banker iu
Waupaca, Wis., was shot and killed in
his banking office late at night by a rob
ber unknown until recently. For eleven
years Pinkerton detectives have worked
uikiii the case, and discovered the per
petrator by a lawyer trying to dispose
of some bonds Ptolen at the time. The
lawyer informed upB the murderer,
w beu cornered, evidently to save him
self. This led to the arrest and indict
ment of Edward Bronson a hotel-keeper,
Samuel Stout a saloon-keeper, and Ted
Prior a olicemau, all of Waupaca, as
accessories before the fact, and Bill
Hatirkomeas an accessory after the fact.
Bronson had been recently working for a
lumbering company at Tacoma, who,
when he heard of the indictment, sur
rendered himself ten days ago. It was
also ascertained that llanskome was
working at Kuby City, Vusju., w here his
arrest followed at once.

Tales Possession cf His Throne and
MOST BRILLIANT COUP D'ETAT
The Regents and Ministers Ousted
at a Banquet Creates a
Belgrade, April 14. A bloodless
coup d'etat was effected here last night,
and King Alexander I, the youthful
ruler of Servia, who heretofore governed
the country through regents, today rules
in his own name. A grand banquet was
given at the palace last night. Plans
were secretly laid by means of which
the regents and the ministry would be
ousted without an opportunity of oppos
ing. The unsuppecting regeuts and
ministers attended the banquet,' and
while enjoying themselves at the palace
an attachment of soldiers and bodies of
police took possession of the ministers'
houses and occupied the government
buildings. At midnight, while the fes
tivities were still in progress, King Al
exander proclaimed that he had attained
his majority, and had assumed with the
skupshtina tho government of the coun
try. As a matter of fact the king had
not attained his majority. When the
deposed regents and ministers heard the
proclamation they were dumbfounded.
The king and his advisers acted with
great promptitude,' and the soldiers,
who were in waiting, at once placed the
regents and ministers under arrest.
The Servian army is loyal to the king.
Had it not been the coup d'etat would
not have been possible. After issuing
the proclamation, and long before day
break, the king proceeded to the bar
racks, where the troops were under
arms, and was received w ith joyous ac
clamations and many expressions of
loyalty. The proclamation, which he
issued everywhere in the country today,
bears the king's signature. In it Alex
ander declares the constitution has been
lately in sore jeopardy, the rights of
citizens imjeriled and the constitutional
position of parliament so abated that
the king must end the unhappy condi
tion of affairs. He therefore declares he
has come to age, and has assumed the
kingly power. Henceforth, the pro
clamation adds, the Servian constitution
acquires its full significance. The re
gents have been deposed, the cabinet
dismissed and anew ministry appointed.
Dokitch is the new prime minister.
1 he Hawaiian.
Washington, April 14. It is said iu
hauling down the United States Hag at
Honolulu, Blount followed the instruc
tions given him before leaving here to
the letter; that the reason for keeping
the fact that he w as empowered to do so
secret, was to prevent possible dis
order in the islands and keep any other
foreign country from stepping in uuex-
Attention is called to these passages in
the Instructions issued under the pre
vious administration by Secretary Fos
ter to Minister Stevens, tinder date of
February 11th, 18!)3: So far as your
action amounts to in according, at the
request of the de facto sovereign govern-'
ment of the Hawaiian island, the co
operation of the moral and material i
forces of the United States for the pro- ;
tectiou of life and proiierty from appre
hended disorders, your action is com
mended ; but so far as it may appear to
overstep that limit by setting the au
thority and K)wer of the United States
above that of the government of the
Hawaiian islands in the capacity ot pro
tection, or to impair in anv way the in-
dependent sovereignty of the Hawaiian
government by substituting the flag and
nower of the United States as a svmbol
and manifestation of paramount author
ity, it is disavowed.

Special One of the most remarkable

Mr. D. T. Denny & Sons have pur

gives them t system of street railway

An Order to Stop Their Issue Was

Washington, April 15. The recent
reports about a gigantic smuggling
scheme on the Pacific coast has stirred
up the officers w ho were alleged to be
implicated. Attorney Mays has tele
graphed Senator Dolph that if there are
any charges pending against him,
either in the treasury department or the
department of justice, then he wanted
a speedy investigation. Senator Dolph
visited both departments today and
found that they had no knowledge what
ever of the recent reports. The fact
that different democrats want a change
in the federal offices in Oregon might
have stirred np these reports, but the
general impression, however, even
among democrats here, ia that Lotan is

The Gold Itraerve.
Washington, April 15. The contin
ued export of gold from this country to
meet the Austrian demand has reduced
the free gold in the United States treas
ury to fl, 800,000. It is the belief that
gold will continue to be exported for
some time, and in order to supply the
demand for gold and replenish the de
plete stock in the New York subtreas
ury, it ia stated the treasury department
has been shipping gold from the treas
ury to New York for the past week.
The amount thus shipped is thought to
be not less than f 10,000,000, and Jt may
Ge more. The statement of the condi
tion of the treasury made daily to the
secretary, shows the net balance is
gradually crawling up, it being today
$25,937,129. Of this sum 112,000,000 is
in subsidiary coin and $10,000,000 in the
national bank depositories. Secretary
Carlisle today directed the subtreasuries
throughout the United States to issue
no more gold certificates at present. In
explaining his action, Secretary Carlisle
said this afternoon that while the $100,
000,000 gold reserve had not been
reached, he was so close to it that
prudence dictated that no more gold
certificates should be issued. The an
nouncement, for the first time since
specie payments were resumed, that it
is necessary to stop the issue of gold
certificates, was followed by a rumor
that the president had decided to issue
$6,000,000 4 per cent, bonds to protect
the gold reserve in case it became neces
sary. Secretary Carlisle, replying to a
query regarding the rumor, said :
"Six millious of bonds have not been
The secretary did not state explicitly
that no bonds were to be issued. It was
ascertained subsequently that the pre
cautionary measures, w hich commenced
under the Harrison administration, of
preparing to meet the emergency by on
issue of bonds if necessary, had been
carried a step further under the present
administration, so that, if it should be
deemed necessary and proper, to issue of
them, or any part of them, rather than
break in upon the gold reserve, the
emergency could be met w ith the least
