Horace F. Page on being interviewed re
cently in New York said: "The silver ques

most a unit iu favor of keeping silver just
where it is. The south and the west are for
silver, while the east are opposed to it. Peo
ple of the east are money lenders, and wish
to make it scarce. Western people are bor
rowers ami wish to see plenty of money in
the market. That's all there is to it."
On the civil service Mr. Horace W. Page
sail: I am not iu favor of civil service re
form in its present form. Cleveland's great
est mistake has been in removing officials

The corn crep of the United States having
passed the critical stage, and whatever of
.langer menanced the cereal from frosts being
now ended, owing to maturity ;.f the grain,
the Farmer's Review of Chicago has called
in reports from its 1400 correspondents, giv
ing the area and probable yield hi the ten
leading corn producing states, and has com
; iled from these a close estimate of the ap
proximate yield of the crop of 1885. The
estimates have been based ou a comparison
with the yield of 18S4, taking the figures of
agricultural bureau at Washington for the
yield of last year. Comparisons by states
of the probable yield in the ten states
named shows an -excess over the year of
IS4,640,000 bushels. On the basis that
states and territories outside of the ten
named will pro. luce is much corn as they
did lest year, or 543,400,000 bushels, and
this would seem to lie assured from a study
of the reports, it will give a total crop of
1,979,639,000 bushels, from which total it
is safe to estimate that the yield will not
vary in any appreciable degree either way.

A series of explosions Saturday afternoon
