plainly see that my personality is ob
jected to, but I will not sacrifice the
party so carefully chosen by my pre
decessor, President Evaristo Carrazo, by
submitting it to the indignity of having
it cast on the ground unprotected. If
the insurgents desire my resignation
without sacrificing those principles of
liberalism that I have striven to instil
into the hearts of the Nicurnguan peo
ple, I am willing to resign from this
moment; but if tlie country is to suc
cumb to the domination of the church
and a retrograde rule, then I ahull not
submit to any changes in the present
form of government." It haa been un
derstood by Minister Buker that the
canal interests will be protected both by
President Sacas.i and his followers and
the revolutionists. If President Sucasu's
requests are carried out, under no cir
cumstances will there lie any more
fighting, as President Sacasa 1ms said
that he "reposes the peace of Nacaragua
in tlie hands of foreign ministers, ami
that any future act of violence will be
laid at the door of the latter."

North Dakota would have a deficiency
of from 1100,000 to $150,000 before an
other legislature could convene. The
treasury is already financially embar
rassed, and it has been necessary to
transfer a portion of th gross earnings
fund, w hich belongs partly to the state
and partly to the county, to the general
state fund, to meet indebtedness for
May. The general fund is already ex
hausted, at a time when taxes are sup
posed to becoming in most rapidly. It
is not unlikely that there will be a defi
ciency of at least (150,000 in the next
two years. The net result of all this,

Kx-Governor Thompson, ex-minister
to Turkey, arrived in Portland ' this
morning from Constantinople, where
bo has lieen representing the United
States for the past six months.
He left the Oriental city on the 1st of
May, and came directly to Portland
w ith only a short stop at New York and
Washington to attend to business mat
ters, and a flying visit to Chicago. The
ex-minister, on his arrival at the depot,
was driven immediately to his residence
at The Hill, where his family has lieen
staying during his absence. Very Boon
after he courteously entertained a Tele
gram rcrter witli a vivid account of
his doings in foreign lands.
Mr. Thompson appeared in excellent
health, and said that he felt the same.
His hair did not seem to lie streaked
with as much white as when ho left
Portland lust fell, and the tired, worried '
exr"s'on of his cjur.tei.ance when be ,
left haa given place to a healthful glow

the eye. A tinge of bronze also con
eyed tho f:ict of a sojourn beneath "the
burnished sun" of a Southern clime.
"What do you think of Oregon's dis
pluy at the world's fuir?" he was asked.
"I think that, without an exception,
Oregon has the poorest exhibit of any
state ut Chicago. I was thoroughly
ashamed of it, and so was every Oregon
ian I met. The exhibit occupies a
small space in the corner of the build
ing, and is tho most insignificant dis
play there. Oregon ought never to
have attempted to wake a display.
While other ttates have palaces, Oregon
has not even a log cabin. It places the
state in a most unenviable position.
Every one that sees the exhibit thinks
it is the best that Oregon can show, and
thus judges her accordingly. There are
a few individual specimens that are very
tine; hut they make no showing. Tlie
fruit is very fine, what there is of it, but

New Youk, June 3. The Recorder
w ill detail tomorrow the cure of several
consumptive patients at Ward's island,
under the direction of tho city authori
ties. As only charity patients in the
last stages of consumption are admitted
there, the Recorder claims the cure, for
which it awarded Dr. W. R. Amick, of
Cincinnati, fl,000, hag accomplished
something miraculous. It says also that
the Cincinnati doctor has agreed to
keep the hospital supplied with medi
cines sufficient for all its consumptives
at his own expense. As only third stage
cases are taken there, no more severe
test could be invited. It is now gener
ally admitted that the Amick discovery
is a certain specific in tlie earlier stages
of consumption. Amick has never here
tofore claimed that it would cure more
than 20 lier cent, of third stage con
sumptives. In this test just made by
the city three out of four were either
cured or astonishingly benefitted. It is
easy enough for any sufferers from the
disease to test the new discovery through
their family physician, for Amick sends
medicine for the purpose free of cost,
and invites impartial test of it by the
medical profession everywhere.
Death ly Drowning-.
Mr. A. Bills was drowned near damn's
Ferry the 30th tilt. On account of the
melting snow and heavy rains in the
mountains, tho river was unusually
high. Tuesday morning Mr. Bills ami
his 20-year-old son came over the river
to get some young trees from Duncan
McRue, and on their return, when they
were in the middle of the river, the boat
capsized und they both went under.
They arose und swam toward the shore.
The boy, with great difficulty, gained
the bank in safety and the father was
almost to the shore when a heavy tide
came and carried him back amongst the
rough waves, there to perish. Men
have been dragging tho river in search
of his body ever since, but up to tlie
time of going to press their efforts have
lieen fruitless. Mr. Bills, w ith his wife,
four sons and three daughters, came up
from the Willamette valley lust October,
and after looking over the country, took
up a homestead in Gilliam county on
the John Day. Antelope Herald.
THE LOWEST SO FAR
Less Tban Ninety Million Dollars of
Gold in tlie Treasury.
BOND-ISSUE QUESTION REVIEWED
Special Meeting of the Cabinet Will Be
Held Tomorrow to Discuss
Washington, June 3. At no time
since specie payments were resumed,
January 1st, 1879, has the net gold in
the treasury of the United States been
so low as today. The amount is (89,
9:59,217. January 1st, 1870, it was 114,
193,539. Since that period it gradually
increased until March, 1888, it had
reached $218,818,000. This was the
high water mark. Since then the net
gold holdings of the treasury have been
on the declining scale. While no un
easiness has been felt at the treasury
department, because of the continued
loss of gold from the treasury, still Sec
retury Carlisle is not unmindful of the
fact that a limit may be reached where
the confidence reposed in the treasury
department by the people niBy be
shaken. How to replete the treasury
with gold has been a problem seriously
considered by the administration for
some time. The issue of bonds is the
usual remedy suggested, but it is known
that the president is not in favor of this
alternative, except as a last resource,
and ev- n if they were issued tlie treas
ury officials a: e not by any means con
fident the treasury gold repleted in this
way will long continue. It is contended
that if the plan is put in force it simply
means the government will be borrowing
gohi at interest for the purchase of sil
ver, with no assurance that tlie gold so
obtained will remain in the treasury
longer than the time necessary to take it
out. The suggestion has been made
that the secretary of the treasury has
the power to issue greenbacks in change
for gold, thus increusing the amount of
gold and increasing the volume of green
backs outstanding to the extent of the
gold thus exchanged. The treasury of
ficials say the idea is not a new one, and
has been advan ;ed at different periods
in the past 10 days. There is no law on
the statute books more stringent than
that relating to greenbacks. The secre
tary of the treasury has no discretion
either to increase or diminish the vol
ume of greenbacks.

Washington, June2.-Durlng the close
of the session of the last congress Henry
Yillard was very anxious to have the
Sherman silver law repealed. Today he
recalled the prediction he had made at
that time, .and said the people called
him an alarmist and pessimist because
be predicted a financial crisis. He con
tinued : "
"The worst has not been reached.
There will be more financial troubles
than we are having now. I do not care
to alarm people, but the situation has
turned as I pointed out lust winter."
"Would the immediate repeul of the
Sherman law help the situation now?"
"I am afraiil it is too late," said Yil
lard ; "yet it would possibly restore
confidence. The damage has already
been done. European countries have
beebnie alarmed because of the Ameri
can silver policy, but. the repeal would
probably avert some disasters."
