The road is not crippled in the least,
they say, by locomotives being disabled,
for they are all in good repair. The
strikers, on the other hand, say that, in
spite of the statements made by the
company to the contrary, the road is
sulTcring from a scarcity of locomotives

Secretary Carlisle's Statement Causes
Much Discussion.
The Cabinet Discussed the Matter This
AfternoonRepublicans Fired
Lp to Date.
Nkw York, April 21. Secretary Car
lisle's statement on the gold situation
was the genera! topic of conversation on
Wall street this afternoon. It was not
favorably received, on the ground that it
was felt to be too indefinite. Most of the
bankers seen expressed themselves un
able to comprehend the secretary's in
tention in reference to the treasury
notes. J Edward Simmons, president
of the Fourth National bank, said Mr.
Carlisle bad announced no policy ; his
words mean nothing so far as the situa
tion of the question is concerned. Some
of the foreign exchange dealers are
again allowing'a premium of '2 of 1 per
cent, to those paying for their remittan
ces in gold.
Itnssell Sage said this morning. "I
believe that if the people do not lose
their beads we shall weather the storm,
and the currency question will event
ually be arranged satisfactorily. It is a
pity, however, that Secretary Carlisle
does not take a bold stand upon the
subject, and give us an idea of w hat he
intends to do."
At the eub-treasnry 12,000,000 in
treasury notes werel depoeited against
the withdrawal of an equal amount of
gold. Of these notes 1400,000 were
treasury notes and the remainder gold
certificates and United States notes.
Cashier Muhlemann, of tbe sub-trea-ury,
has not received any word from Wash

irter Vontlnuea 111 Henrlng Sea
Pakis, April 21. J. C. Carter, coun
sel for tbe United States in the Behring
sea tribunal of arbitration, continued
his argument in behalf of the American
claims. Carter criticised the weak
points of the case presented in behalf of
Great Britain. He admitted that the
United States asked for a monopoly of
tbe seals, but a monopoly, he argued.
could only be injurious wheu artificial
prices were induced by it. In the pres
ent instance that was impossible. On
thecoutrary, tbe monopoly atked for by
the United States would eucourage pro
duction, and be beneficial to humanity
the same as the laws providing for pat
ents and copyrights. Carter proceeded
to refute the British argument thatseals
devoured tbe British fifh in the waters
of British Columbia. The fish in those
waters, Carter said, were the property
of the world. Carter quoted from the
joint report of tho commissioners of
Great Britian and the United States,
appointed to investigate the condition
of seal life iu tbe North Pacific ocean
to sustain bis position that pelagic seal
ing was wrong. The Unitod States,
Carter said, would tolerate the right of
the Indiaus to pursue seals for personal
sustenance, but not for commercial
Submarine Torpedo Ileal.
Wasmintoon, April 22. The navy de
partment has invited the submission of
designs for a submarine torpedo boat,
authorised by the last congress together
w ith an additional appropriation for con
ducting experiments with the vessel.
Bids will also ho received from builders
on plans submitted by thuni, but designs
unaccompanied by such bids will bo
carefully considered. The boat designed
is required to possess such a renerve of
bouyanry, as to make certain that she
will rise to tbe surface in case of acci
dent to her machinery or otherwise.
She must also carry an ample supply of
air for the crew when submerged for the
maximum length of timeintended. The
strength must be ample to resist without
leaking, the water pressure to a depth of
150 feet and for a considerable period of
time. A submergence below a certain
depth must be prevented by automatic
means. Arrangements must be provided
for quick rising and lowering, for re
maining stationary and for going on a
straight line backward and forward
when submtrged. This displacement of
the vessel is not to exceed 150 tons, and
it should lie capable of carrying five
automobile topedoes, fitted to fire two at
a time, w hether on the surface or sub
merged. All material for the boat is to
be of domestic workmanship.
A Case of Leprosy.
jort ayne, JnU., April 'Z'l. A case
which several physicians, who had an
examination, unhesitatingly pronounce
genuine Asiatic leprosy, has made its
appearance in this city. This afternoon
a Syrian woman, giving her name as
Schantznes E. Onchlet, called at the
office of Dr. Stirgis for treatment. Her
face was yellow, shrunken and bore dis
gufting blotches, such as unmistakably
mark lepers and distinguishes leprosy
from any other disease. When the
woman held out her left hand, it was
seen that all the fingers had rotted off as
far as tbe first joint and the index finger
bone protruded where the flesh had
sloughed off. She said she did not want
any medicine, but asked the doctor to
remove the dead bone, which interfered
with her business, that of notion ped
dler. The bone was removed, as it was
already rotten. Tbe case was rejiorted
to tbe authorities, who immediately took
steps to take care of the woman. She
arrived in this city three weeks ago from
the Pacific coast, and states that she
passed a year on the islands of the Pa
cific ocean and contracted the disease on
one of the Hawaiian islands. She will
be sent to Syria, w here she desires to go
that she may die on her native soil.
8an Franclaco Wins.
Washington, April 22. The string of
continuous victories by the crews of the
cruiser San Francisco in the recent boat
races at Hampton Koada has caused tbe
naval officials to put on their thinking
caps to discover the reason for so much
glory to one particular ship. One val
uable lesson is taught by the results,
according to the views of the officials,
and that is that to much attention can-
not be given the subject of calisthenics
aboardship. Commodore Sampson, who
commanded the San Francisco before
she left tbe Pacific coast, says that
special pains were taken by the officers
of lht vessel to give the men plenty of
athletic exercise. The result of the
recent races he attributes largely to the
care taken in this direction. Another
reason assigned for the many victories
of the San Francisco's crews is that
there have been practically no changes
in the complement of that vessel since
the men joined her at San Francisco
three years ago. None of the other
American ships, thedepartment officials
say, stiow sucti a Homogenous comple
ment of men as this vessel. Tbe
changes have been so frequent on other
esfels that there were necessarily a
number of green men in the other crews.
Tbe department officials also consider
that the superiority of the American
small boats is fully shown by the recent
Mecrrtary Herbert and Mr. Manning",
Mkmphis, Tenn., April 22. The Ap
peal-Avalanche's special from Washing
ton says the gossips of the capita are
telling a pretty story about Secretary of
the Navy Hcrliert and Mrs. Manning,
widow of Daniel Manning, secretary of
the treasury under Cleveland's first ad
ministration. The story is to the effect
that these two w ill be the contracting
parties in a wedding soon to take place.
The presence of Mrs. Manning on the
Dolphin, now at Fortress Monroe, as the
guest of Secretary Herbert, gives color to
the rumor. Secretary Herbert is a

done by his daughter, Miss Leila Her

President Clmlaci Declares tbe Fi
nancial Policy of tne Goyernnot.
Their Redemption, Except id Gold,
Has Never Been Contemplated by
Any One at Any Time.
Washington, April, 23. To a repre
sentative of the press the president said
to night;
"The inclination on the part of the
public to accept newspaper reports con
cerning the intentions of thoso charged
with the management of our national
finances seems to justify my emphatic
contradiction of the statement that tbe
redemption of any kind of treasury
notes, except in gold, has at any
time been determined upon, or contem
plated by the secretary of the treasury,
or any other member of the present ad
ministration. The president and his
cabinet are absolutely harmonious in
the determination to exercise every
power conferred upon them to maintain
the public credit, to keep the public
faith and to preserve the parity between
gold and silver and between all finance
obligations of the government. While
the law of 1890, forcing the purchase of
a fixed amount of silver every mouth,
provides that the secretary of the treas
ury, in his discretion, may redeem in
gold or silver the treasury notes given
in payment of silver purchases, yet the
declaration of tbe policy of the govern
ment, to maintain the parity between
the two metals, seem so clearly to reg
ulate this discretion as to dictate their
redemption in gold. Of course perplex
ity and difficulties have grown out of an
unlortuuate Iinancial policy which we
found in vogue and embarrassments have
arisen from ill-advised financial legisla
tion facing us at every turn, but with a
cheerful confidence among the people
and a patriotic disposition toco-operate,
tbe threatened dangers will be averted,
pending a legislative return to a better
and sounder financial plan. The strong
credit of the country is still unimpaired
and the good sense of our people, which
has never failed in tbe time of need, is
at hand to save us from disaster."
The president's only visitors today
were Secretaries Carlisle and Lamont.

Tbe Ann Arbor Trouble.
Toledo, O., April 20 It is probable
that the Ann Arbor strike, aided by
Judge Ricks' decision, baa proved a
death blow to the Brotherhood of ljco-
motive Engineers. A new association is
being formed in this city. The new
organization will include, aside from the
engineers and firemen, such superinten
dents of motive power as are desirous of
joining, and may also be open to all em
ployes of the railroads from the highest
officials down to the trackmen. Theob-
ects of the new organization will be
practically the same as those of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers,
with the same insurance features. The
management of tbe new organization
will be placed in tlie hands of the older
and more experienced railroad men, and
will provide for general arbitration wiien
it may become necessary.
Shearing Too Noon.
One of the mistakes that sheepmen
make is shearing too early in the season.
This is a very backward year. There is
so much suow in the mountains that
every breeze coming over them has frost
in its breath. The air is chilly even in
the day time and down in the valleys,
while up in the hills it is still colder and
at the night inclement. The desire to
get wool into the market so as to secure
good figures before the glut comes on,
and often the dire necessity too raise
some money, induce the sheepmen to
clip to soon. The consequence is that
the sheep are injured and many of
them perish. Democrat.
