Secretary FoHter Digagrees With Leech
as Regard Silver.
Washington. April 29. In a talk with
a reporter today about the recent state
ment of Mint Director Leech on finan
ces, Secretary Foster said Leech was
right in the main, although he (Foster)
would have stated it differently. He
would say that some of the $ 220,000,000
of available cash might be regarded as
trust funds. It would be correct to say
that the sum of $70,000,000 is unques
tionably available cash that is, money
in me Danxs, suDsiaiarv coin, trade
dollar bullion, current cash and silver
against which no certificates are issued.
As to the $100,000,000 in gold held
against greenbacks, the secretary . said
the government can and will use this
gold reserve if needed on a pinch. As
the notes outstanding are legal tender,
the gold should therefore appear in the
debt statement as available cash.
The secretary does not agree with
Leech in the opinion that the silver pur
chased under the new act, against which
certificates are issued, is available cash.
The certificates are against that and it is
in the nature of a trust, but the profits
on silver purchases, amounting to some
?4,uuu,uuu, may oe used, l tie secretary
said he was thinking of trying to substi
tute 2 per cent, for 4s, as Windom
proposed, if it can be done, there will
be two advantages over redemption. To
be able to float 2 per cents, will demon
strate the extraordinary soundness of
the government credit, and the money
required to redeem the 4V8 may be used
tor the purchase ot 4s at a saving ot z
per cent, of the interest, to be paid up
to the time of maturity.
HE WAS TOO AFFABLE.
A Smuggler Who Over-Acted His Part
Port Townsend, April 29. A smooth
smuggler who had been doing a thriv
ing business on steamers between Vic
toria and Port Townsend, came to grief
Tuesday night. He came on board the
steamer .North facinc carrying a valise
and a box in which was set a luxuriant
geranium, and at one? hunted up In
spector Learned and asked to have the
valise examined. He was very affable,
handed out cigars to the inspector and
over-acted the part of a pious, unso
phisticated passenger. Ihe inspector s
suspicions were aroused and when the
time came he not only examined the
valise tut probed the earth in the box
containing the geranium. Under the
dirt he found concealed nineteen five-tael
tins of prepared opium, or nine and a
half rxunds of the drni?. The smnszler
gave the name of Elder Gerrard, and
was brought before United btates Uom
missioner Swan yesterday, his bail being
set at szzo. As he could not hnd bonds
men he is still in the hands of Deputy
United states Marshal W. J. Jones
Gerrard claims to be a Methodist minis
ter, and is a successful worker in1 the
opium trade. He made several trips
under various names, carrying boxes of
piams, ana nas escaped suspicion nere

A San Francisco Paper Makes Reference
to Oregon's Governor.
San Francisco, April 29. An evening
paper says : The governor's staff have
secured two cars and are waiting for or
ders from Adjutant General Allen to
attach them to tne presidential train
It is their intention, if the governor de-
cides to accompany the president to the
Oregon line, to continue clear into Port
land with him and present him there to
mayor DeLashmutt. The latter has dis
played a patriotic spirit not observable
in governor Pennoyer. the latter is un
friendly to president Harrison. He is
the governor, they say, who was discev
ered in Washington before the discovery
ot Mount uood, and who came near be
ing lynched years ago for disrespectful
utterances at the time or the assassina
tion of president Lincoln.
Balmaceda Escapes Assassination.
Valparaiso, April 29. President Bal
maceda, of Chili, escaped death from
assassination as if by a miracle today.
He and his family were seated in the
parlor of the presidential mansion when
a dynamite bomb was thrown into one
of the rooms through a window. The
bomb exploded and did mnch damage to
the room but no one was hurt.' Intense
excitement was caused by the attempted
assassination, and the streets and the
vicinity of the palace have been crowded
since. There is no clue of the perpetra
tor of the outrage, but the authorities
are using every effort to . establish his
identity and capture him.

In camp on summit between John Day
and Des Chutes Rivers, April 25, '91.
T. A. Hudson, Eng., Tlie Dalles, Or.
Dear Sir : We have bad a very hard
week, the country was so rough, but have
found an' easy grade and readily built
road way so far, and as we are now at
the top of the divide between John Day
and DesChutes the problem as to the
practicability of building a road is un
questionably solved. We can get a good
road with a maximum grade of 75 feet to
the mile, and I fully belieye that with
the knowledge I now have of the coun
try I cah better this. Our heaviest grade
from DesChutes river here is 72 feet to
the mile, and the average not over 40.
We are all well but feeling tough today .v
For three days and nights we were with
out our mess wagon, living on short
rations and sleeping by a camp fire, and
of course, while we . had to do this, it
rained nearly all the time, especially at
night, although up to then, we had had
no rain whatever. I feel proud of my
party, however, as in spite of cold, rain,
hunger and the accouit anying trials not
a growl or murmur was heard, and we
were as tired and footsore a crowd as
ever you saw when we reached camp
last night. Now, what a supper we all
did eat. I will tell you all about it when
I see you. Give my regards to Col.
Thornbury and Mr. Cooper, and please
accept the same yourself.
