Fort Scott, Kau., June 26. Tlie

this morning, without warning. Then.
were 100 occupant in it. The house
was brick, four stories high. The en
tire east wall fell, followed by the three
lloors and their load of occupant.
Danger of other parts of the building
falling prevents a thorough search for
the bodies in the ruins. Twenty-seven
occupants have been taken from the
second story on the west side by meaus
of a ladder, and others escaped through
the regular exits. Mechanics are at
work strengthening walls so that a
search can be made. It is believed the
accident was caused by the recent addi
tion of a mansard roof which was too
heavy for the foundations.
Three men were taken out soon after

many weeks, and that the indications
are the crisis has passed. Little more
money is expected to be sent today to
Han Francisco by registered mail, and
possibly a small transfer may be made
by telegraph to that place through the
subtreaaury. Silver certificates dropped
to 77l, commercial bar silver to 77 and
Mexican dollars to 60 cents. The break
is due to cables reporting the suspension
of purchases of silver for Indian accounts
and closing of the Indian mints.
II llaa a Formidable Array of Legal
Portland, Or., June 20. It has been
many months since a case has appeared
in the criminal courts of Portland in
which so much interest has been taken
by the public generally as that against
merchant Matthias Koshland, which
came up this morning.
Henry McGinn, for the prosecution,
stated that the prosecution was based on
on the statute passed by the session of
the legislature of 1SS5, referring to the
receipts issued by warehouses for goods
stored in the building. That the jury
might understand the grounds for the
indictments returned by the grand jury,
he read the sections which referred to

Washington, June 27. Two hours
were consumed by the cabinet today dis
cussing the new phase of the silver ques
tion, when other matters demanded their
attention. The conferences yesterday
afternoon and evening between the pres
ident and Carlisle 8 i m pi i lied matters to
some extent. Although the discussion,
it is said, took a wide range, it was nee
cessarily brought back to the one im
portant unmanageable point, that the
executive hail no power in the premises,
congress alone being able to deal with
measures for relief. It is plain to the
cabinet the monthly purchase of silver
must lie continued or congress must be
convened in special session immediately.
As the president decided to call congress
together in the early part of September
to deal with the limincial situation, and
has manifested no intention of changing
his stated purpose, the project of an
earlier session of congress, it is under
stood, was dropped. As far ns the con
tinuance of the purchases of silver under
the Sherman law is concerned, it was
pointed out that little more than two
months remained before congress would
convene in extra session, and during the
intervening time the silver lots pur-
out o( court. The result was surprise
to all, and a murmur of applause ran
through the court room when the er
dict of the Jury, who were instructed by
the court to acquit the defendant, was
read by the clerk.
Tomorrow Mr. Koshland must answer
to a second indictment of the grand
jury, which accuses him of Issuing a
warehouse receipt for goods not in Ins
tore, which goods were 3(1,1)14 sheep

alleges, was not in the store at the time,

tentlon ot t"ong-r.
Washington, June 25. General
' Catchings, of Mississippi, who was a
member of the last house committee on
-rules, in speaking of the legislation
which will occupy the attention of con
.gressat the special session this autumn,
aid :
"The repeal of the Sherman act and
the reform of the tariff are the two great
subjects with which we will have to deal.
The numerical strength of the free sil
ver vote is uncertain, but It is certain
many members will oppose its repeal
unless something nearer to free coinage
is offered. When the tariff debate
springs np, every protected industry in
the country will have a representative
on the floor. uh the opposition so
etrong, it will be absolutely necessary to
modify rules, else nothing can be done.
It is nearly as certain as anything can
be that quite a considerable change
will be the results of a conference and
past experiences. Last winter the com
mittee on rules formulated a provision
which should meet the case. It was to
the effect that it shall always be in or
der to call up for consideration a report
from the committee on rales. The rule
declares that after a report of the com
mittee has been made but one motion
to adjourn shall be entertained. It will
be as direct and strong method of
closure ss can be devised, and I have
little doubt of its adoption. By this
course the conduct of the business of
the honse will be placed entirely in the
bands of the majority. With regard to
the sentiment of the South concerning
the repeal of the Sherman act, I believe
it is in fomentive state. Eighteen
months ago the South was strongly in
tavor of free coinage, but it is not so to
day. I should say the sentiment is now
bout half and half."

Feeling- In Mew York Money Market
Much Kaaler.
Xbw York, June 26. Money is strin
gent, call loans ranging at 10 to SO.
There is a good deal of calling in of loans
preparatory to July Interest and divi
dend disbursements. This is liable to
continue until the first of the month.
The market will also likely work close
for the first 10 days in July, as it is esti
mated it will take at least that time to
restore money called into the normal
channels. The stock exchange houses
are prepared for a siege of this sort and
are discouraging speculation. Time
money and mercantile paper are merely
nominal. Foreign exchange is heavy

400 pounds. That in truth and In fact I bail, and is again running the
paper, but is letting Spreckles alone,
pending the result of the libel suit.
Spreckles is now avowedly on the war
path against the provisional government,
and, though he has yet made no new
move, disquieting rumors are being cir
culated as to his intentions of pinching
business men who are unfortunate
enough to be under financial obligations
to him. The advisability of taking away
from Spreckles the Oceanic Steamship
Company mail subsidy of $1,000 per
month and giving it to the Canadian
Pacific or Pacific Mail is still being con
sidered by the government.
Minister Blount was much disap
pointed at not receiving word by the
last steamer that his successor bad been
appointed. He had hoped his own re
quest to the state department, together
with the publicity given his desires in
the matter by the newspapers, would
have some weight in securing his recall.
He has said that he would not reside in
Honolulu permanently under any cir
cumstances, and as he considers that his
work here is finished, he is more than
anxious to get away.
As an argument for annexation, the
Star prints a revised list of taxpayers
who pay taxes on property valued at
$10,000 and over. According to the
Star's figures, the people in favor of an
nexation pay taxes on property assessed
at 23,iiO0,OO0, royalists $2,300,000, di
vided $.",100,000.' doubtful $1,1'0,000,
republican $'270,000. The royalists dis
pute the correctness of this showing.

the said Koshland had not this amount
of pork in the building when he issued
the receipts.
J. W. Whalley presented the case for
the defense.
He said that the defense lay in the de
nial that the statue under which indict
ment was made referred to the defend
ant's case. He did not carry on a pub
lic warehouse, but was an ordinary
bailee. He taid that the law was
framed to provide for the prevention of
fraud by persons running public ware
houses, but was not intended to affect
commission men. As a public ware
house, the state would have to show
that Koshland Bros, allowed depositors
to store goods in the building, which he
said was clearly not the case.
The attorney then gave a short his
tory oi the firm's business relations with
the bank of British Columbia, their
failure in business and their assignment
to that corporation. He stated that if
the goods mentioned in the excerpt did
not happen to be in their store at the
time it was to their credit, and that
the receipt was given to the bank
to balance their account, as is often
done in business transactions. "If,"
said Mr. Whalley, "Mr. Koshland
wanted to defraud the bank, be could
easily legally kept the $100,000 worth of
real estate which lie turned over to the
bank to satisfy its claims." He closed
with an appeal to take into considera
tion the character of the defendant, and
the fact that he has stood among the
highest of business men in this city for
over 25 years.

A Huggeatliin From Mexico.
City ok Mexico, June 27. The tre
mendous drop in the price of silver yes
terday and today, bringing exchange in
New York to 00 per cent, has caused
much discussion among Mexican bank-
ess. 1 hey generally regard the present
situation as offering opxrtunity fur the
United States to force bimetaliHiu npon
Europe. It is suggested by one man
that the United States might issue a
gold loan of $500,000,000 four-and-a-half
per cent bonds, which it is said would
he immediately taken up in Europe,
where all other government securities
would immediately drop heavily, not
being able to compete with American
bonds. Then, according to the theory.
gold would flow into the United States,
and in a short time bimctalism would
have been adopted by Europe, and the
enormous quantity of silver held by the
American treasury would rise in value,
the whole transaction being immensely
profitable to the United States. It is
said here that if nothing is done to
bring alxut bimetalisra, all the silver
using countries will begin manufactur
ing for themselves, and the United
States and Europe will lose enormously
in their foreign trade. The United
States, it is argued, could afford to un
dertake a gigantic financial operation,
being able to feed it, and has now a
wonderful opportunity to settle the sil
ver question permanently.
senator liolph on the Sherman Law.
Washington, June 27 .Senator Dolph,
of Oregon, the only Pacific slope senator
in the city, said this morning :
"I am opjiosed to my colleagues, you
know on the subject of free coinage, and
am in favor of maintaining all currency
on par with gold ; but it seems to me
this action of the Indian government will
diminish, instead of increase, the pros
pect of passing a repeal of the Sherman I
law by the senate. I think the effect
will be to make the thoughtful members j
of congress hesitate liefore they further
depreciate the valiieof silver by suddenly
throwing upon the markets of the world
4,500,000 ounces of silver, equivalent to
nearly the whole American product now
purchased and in stock by tlie guvnrn
ment. I do not know that anything
U'tter than a repeal of the Sherman act
can bn done t relieve tho situation, but
I am fearful a repeal of that act would
he disastrous to the finances of the gov
ernment mid silver."
