Wariiinoton, May 20. It i under
stood that Cleveland hua Huid that one
reawin why he will not cull CQnirreaa to
enact luwa to meet the deficiency in be
cuuee ii would prevent the return to
prosperity which he heli.-vcR i pendinn.
The prexitlent thinks that there would

land much tariff lciHlatiun HUggeRted
woicli would uiinettle hUHineas of all

forward. But more than all In the
I dtnire of the president to see the present
' tarifr law given a loiiger tent than it
j could possibly have if conKress should
j rousHeinble. He knows that the re-
repuhlicun congress will insist upon
j raising the necessary revenue for tiie
! government by an increase of duty on
1 foreign goods, and he would be placed
j in a moNt disagreeable position by re
I fusing his assent to it, and, at the same
'time, dep'iving the treasury of the
It is now generally talked that an
: effort will be made in the next congress
' to pass a proposed constitutional amend
I ment eliminating the direct-tax clause
j from the constitution, which would
allow an income tax to be levied. It is
very doubtful if such a proposition can
pass congresa. It would require a two
thirds vole in each bouse to put the pro
posed amendment before tiie people.
j Taking the vote in the last bouse as an
example, it is pretty plain that two-thirds
of the house could not be found willing
to vote for the amendment. The same
difficulty would also be met in the
senate. The vote on the income-tax
proposition in the senate indicated that
the necessary two-thirds was lacking.
Besides after such a proposition had run
the gauntlet of a two-thirds vote in each
of the houses of congress, it would still
have to secure three-fourths of the states
yoither by legislation or conventions
authorised or the purpose. There are,
cr will be, 45 states after next December.
Consequently, 34 states would have to
ratify the amendment. If 13 refused to
do no, the amendment would fail. It is
almost sure there would be that number
who would refuse assent. But the
greater difficulty would be In passing
the proposed amendment threugh con
gress. It would seem that little atten
tion need be given that idea for the
present, although there are those who
claim that an election could be carried
on the issue.
OBOAR WILDE F0UHD GUILTY.
I B.nt.nced to Two Yeara Imprisonment at
London, May 25. Oscar Wilde's trial
having reached the final stage, Old
Bailey courtroom was filled with inter
ested spectators today. Sir Frank Lock
wood, solicitor-general, concluded his
address to the jury. The prisoner's
intimacy with Lord Alfred Douglass
and the exhibition of the younger
man by the elder one at hotels and
public places in and about London were
severely commented upon. Referring
to the letters Wilde wrote Lord Alfred
Douglass, counsel said the jury had bf en
told they were too low to appreciate such
poetry and he thanked God it was so,
as it showed they were abov6 the level
of the beasts. This was greeted with
applause, which the judge promptly
Sir Edward Clarke, leading counsel
for Wilde, here interposed objections to
Lockwood asked tho jury to render a
verdict which would prevent such a de
testable and abominable vice from rear
ing its head unblushinglv in this country.
Justice Wills began gumming up at
1:20 p. m. The general tenor of his
address waB favorable to Wilde. The
jury retired at 3 :30 p. ra., and returned
at 5:30, having been absent from the
court room two hours, and returned a
verdict of guilty. A sentence of two
years' imprisonment at hard labor was
imposed. The sentence was passed on
THE TRADE BITDATI0K.
Unoertain Condition of Cropi and Prioes Tend
New Yohk, May 20. Bradstreets to
morrow will say :
The moderate reaction in the stock
market lust week and this week, caused
primarily by frosts and reports of severe
damage to cereal crops, was followed
only in part by a corresponding check to
the movement in general trade. Not
one of the larger grain states confirms
the reports of severe damage to wheat
and corn with which exchanges have
alouniM, and there is less reason to
believe in the extent of it, as currently
reported. The most bullish feature in
the wheat situation Ilea on the announ
ced restriction of Argentine ami Ruasian
axjxrU, the reduced export ability of
nearly all leading producers and the
shor'er supplies of importing countries.
Few tlieve that wheat has touched it
highest point on this wave, althongh it
is 35 cents per bushel above the lowest
since the panic.
New Yohk, May ZtJ.-'R. G. Dunn A
company's weekly 'eview of trade to
morrow will say :
If wheat has been so greatly injured
by snow and frosts in May that a sud
den rise of 12 ctrnts in two weeks it-
justified, the calamity will affect all
business prospects. The markets do not
believe it, for stocks do not collapse;
iron, leather and bides still rise, and no
holder of wheat would sell at 80 ce its,
a lower price than has been known at
this season tor thirty years prior to 180.3,
if the cuirent reports were credited.
Some injury has ondonbtedby been sus
tained, but our own difpatch does not
show that it is really serious.
The temper is to buy regardless of
possible requirements, in the faith that
prices are sure to rise. The week's sales
here are amounted to 15o,0:j0,000 bushels
and the accounts of damage by frost and
by insects are so much mixed up that
some traders think the buits must wear
The iron industry distinctly gains and
the improvement is no longer confined
to prices of materials. Better wanes at
and west of Pittsburg convince buyers
that prices must rise.
Failures this week are 207 in the
United States against 218 last year and
23 in Canada against 28 last year.

As Important Qaeatloa Regarding India
Bohooli on Benrrationi.
Washington, Mav 26. Representa
tive Hermann, of Oregon, has raised a
very important question in the interior
department in relation to Indian schools
on reservations where allotments in sev
eralty have occurred. He has presented
the right of a state to extend its common
school system over the Indians' land,
with the right to establish school districts
in the reservation, and for the Indians
the right to choose teachers according to
the school law, and to be under the law
for taxation purposes, except as to the
lands held by allotment enly. The
Indian bureau is inclined to take this
view, and further, to hold that it may
aid such schools trom the fund out of
which it already contributes to some
district schools certain sums for each
Indian taught in them. Mr. Hermann
has formally piesented the matter to
the secretary, and it will likely soon be
submitted to the attorney-general, as
the department says it is the first time
the question has come in this shape.
Indians on allotments, being naw ' citi
zens, assert their right to enjoy a common-school

tary of State Gresham died at 1:15 a.

Walter Q. Gresham, formerly United
States judge and President Cleveland's
secretary of state was born in Harrison
county, Indiana, on March 17, 1832. At
the age of 21 he was admitted to the bar
and in 18(10 was elected to the state
legislature, but resigned to accept a
commission in an Indiana regiment
when the war opened. Ho was badly
wounded at Atlanta and for his gallantry
received the brevet of major general of
volunteers. In 1809 President Giant
appointed him United States judge for
the district of Indiana, but in 1882 he
resigned trom the bench to become
postmaster-general under President
Arthur. By the death of Secretary
Folger in 1884 he became secretary of
the treasury. He was appointed United
States judge for the seventh circuit in
