was finally sustained. Turpie was not
satisfied with this action, and intro- ,
duced a resolution recently intended ss
an offset to the terms of the treaty. The i
resolution declares it is the-eense of the
Senate that jurisdiction In what is
known as political offenses ought not to '
ha extra territorial, and no treaty should i
be approved which proposes to take from .
the courts of the United States the right
to determine whether or not an offense

Business men in puhllo life fear tbat a
financial disturbance is aear at hand. It
la said that Secretary Foster has pre
pared to avoifi any difficulty in the Treas
ury by purchasing gold oy issuing an
enormous amount of bonds. As high as
$300,000,000 rumor places the amount.
This statement is made flatly, and goes
so far as to say that the bonds have al
ready been placed and an agreement
reached for their immediate exchange
for gold, the arrangement being made In
anticipation of the result of the silver
vote in the House, which it is feared will
precipitate a crisis. Whatever may be
done by the present Secretary of the
Treasury, it is now conceded that Cleve
land will early call an extra session of
Congress to repeal the Sherman law and
by his own personal power and actual
patronage and persuasion force tbe bill
through, beginning by having the House
organised nnder common-sense rules,
wfelah will bring the House to a vote.
