Special to The Chronicle.
Washington, Jan. 6. Secretary Fos
ter does not expect to be called upon to
issue any bonds to get gold for the treas-
ury between now and March 4th. It
will be necessary. In the three weeks
during which $12,000,000 have been sent
abroad, all of which was taken from the
treasury, he says : "I have had the off
set of $8,000,000 accumulation. The
gold in the treasury when the high ship
ments began amounted to $125,000,000.
While I have not made any promises to
get any more gold in the treasury on
March 4th tha'n $120,000,000, I believe
that the shipments of gold to Europe
will be lighter from the 1st, and that it
is within the possibilities of the situa
tion to leave $125,000,000 for my succes
sor to control. While I ehall not utilize
the provisions of the resumption act of
1875, which went into effect on Jan. 1st,
1879, there is no doubt among the legal
councellors of the government that the
secretary of the treaeury is empowered
under this law to sell bonds to secure
gold whenever it becomes necessary to
maintain resumption. The maintenance
of the credit of the government has ' al
ways been thought best subserved by
paying lwnds in gold, and that will un
doubtedly continue the custom."
President Harrison Failing.
Washington, Jan. 6. Friends of
President Harrison, who have had occa
sion to see and talk with him of late,
are very much concerned about his con
dition, and express a fear that his
health will break down before the close
of his administration. The long series
of unfortunate mishaps to the president
and members of bis family have had a
very depressing effect upon him. Tiie
death of his wife, to whom he was pecul
iarly devoted, was a blow from which
he has not rallied in the slightest de
gree, and it left him quite unable to
withstand the ill fortune that has since
followed him and the other inmates of
the White House. He is considerably
annoyed at present by the importuni
ties of many of his personal friends who
arc anxious to be provided for in some
way before their benefactor goes out of
office. It is said that the president's
health is the chief argument used by his
friends to have him accept the overtures
made by the Stanford university.
Washington Senatorial - Contest.
Olympia, Jan. 5. Nothing new has
transpired regarding the senatorial con
test. Senator Allen arrived yesterday
and feels confident of victory, while the
friends of Judge Turner are equally sure
of winning. Very few -delegates have
arrived as yet. It is expected that
nearly all will be here by Saturday,

Attempt to Unseat Republicans.
Augusta, Me., Jan. 5. It is stated an
effort will be made by leading democrats
to have certain republican members of
the legislature unseated under the sec
tion of the new ballot law which forbids
any candidate to act as an election

Lincoln, Neb., 'Jan. 5. The house is
ready to canvass the vote on the state
election, but can do nothing else till the
senate, which is still deadlocked, organ
izes and meets with the house in joint
session for that purpose.

JUSTICE IX CHICAGO.
A Jury GetH
a Wholesome Reprimand
and is Fined.
Chicago, Jan 6. Special. There is a
great deal of instruction to be got out
of the incident in Judge Brentano's
court room yesterday morning, wherein
certain factions and ill-advised jarymen
received a tongue-lashing they will not
soon forget. In a suit for damages for
the death of a child that sagacious body
returned a verdict finding the defand
ants responsible for the death and fixing
the damages therefor at one cent. This
is suggestive ; but wait. With the ver
dict handed in was a copy of a requisi
tion made by nine of the jurors last
Thursday for a case of beer, two quarts
of whisky, a box of cigars, three decks
of cards, a dozen bottles of ale and din
ner for twelve. With this festal outlay,
purchased at the public expense, it had
been the jurors' intention to grapple
with a problem involving a question of
human life. .In this easy and jocular
manner they had meant to dispatch the
solemn duties to which they were sworn.
It is bard to eay which is most amazing,
the astounding impudence of the thing
or the abject confession it implies of a
total disregard of trust and of the sacred
ness of human lite. Jtodge Brentano's
excoriation of the culprits was about us
sharp and cutting as might be, but none
too severe for the offense. The fines
administered to the jurors, with their
discharge, were in comparison mild to
bear. If the object lesson will prevail
in preventing other jurors with a dis
torted sense of humor, from stultifying
the proceedings of justice in similar
fashion it will have beenr highly salutary.
Willing to Compromise.
Washington, Jan. 5. Cleveland has
informed several democrats in congress,
who come nearest to representing his
views on the financial questions, and
who are anxious to have the silver mat
ter settled in some way as speedily as
possible, that he would be content to
have the bland act restored as a com
promise, in consideration of the repeal
of the Sherman act. How far he is using
his influence to bring this about is un
certain, but the men in congress who
are interesting themselves in the matter
are very hopeful of being able to effect a
A Filthy Camp.
Washington, Jan. 5. Surgeon-General
Wyman has received a ' report from
Surgeon Williams, sent to Little rock,
Ark., to investigate the disease in the
convict camp there. After describing
the filthy condition of the' camp and sur
roundings, he gives it as his opinion the
deaths there were due either to poison
or to contaminated water, due to over
crowding, probably the latter.
A Prospect of War.-
Panama, Jan. 5. The boundary ques
tion between Costa Rica and Nicaragua
has been reopened. There is a prospect
of war between the countries in conse
quence. A body of Costa l-lican soldiers
have taken possession of tho territory
claimed by Nicaragua, an ultimatum
which the latter country is not disposed
to agree with. She is preparing to de
fend her rights. .

Washington, Jan. 5. Dr. Johnson

better this morning. Dr. Looinis, the
specialist, left this morning on his re
turn to New York.

REP. GKEKNLEAF INTERVIEWED.
After Scaling the Ll8t From Wheneet
Mast Come the Revenue to Sleet
Special to The Chronicle.
Washington, Jan. 6. The question of
an extra session is discussed everywhere.
Last evening a few were talking over the
situation when the inquiry was made
direct of representative Greenleaf of New
York : "What does England pay duty
on? I understand there are only about
seven articles from which that nation
receives revenue." The answer was plain
and eimple, in substance. "Tobacco,
tea, rum, brandy and other spirits, wine,
currents, coffee, raisins and a few minor
articles that amount to little in the re
ceipts. That is thelist. The- entire
revenue from customs duties amounts
to about $100,000,000 a year. About
$120,000,000 more comes frcjru the tax on
beer, on railways and from licenses.
Then there are the probate duty, the
legacy duty the house duty, the income
and property tax, and other sources of
revenue mainly taking the form of
stamped documents, etc. The fonrchief
sources of income are the excise, customs,
stamps, and income and property tax, in.
the order named."
- The study of this plan of raising
revenue is of very great interest to the
people of this country now because it has
a charm for many of the leaders of the
democratic party. Our enormous cus
toms duties are to be whittled down, if
we can believe the declarations of the
ardent reformers who are tilting" at the
McXinley law. Free sugar has come
and will remain. Free wool, free lum
ber, free tin-plate and other articles are .
to follow, with a general scaling of tariffs
on manufactured products, which yet
may be as well protected as before, be
cause of the granting of free raw
materials. But. whence will come the
revenue to pay the many millions for
pensions, for river and harbor laws, the
cost of new battleships and of elaborate
coast defenses, which a nation with not
an enemy this side of the planet Mara
still thinks it must have. Prepare for a.
large increase in the internal revenue
tax on whisky; ' Prepare for a deter
mined effort to establish an income tax
and a tax on inheritances. Prepare for
a lively agitation by Congressman Tom
Johnson and others of that ilk in favor
of a tax on lands. The old order
changeth. .Will the people take kindly
to these new ideas? That remains to be
Miuixter Lincoln to Resign.
Chicago, Jan. 5. It is understood
that the resignation of Minister to Eng
land Robert T. Lincoln will be one of the
first to be placed at the disposal of Pres
ident Cleveland after bis inauguration.
It developed today that during his re
cent vacation in this country the son . of
Old Abe made arrangements to resume
his law practice by the opening of the
world's fair, and it is stated by friends
that he expects a democrat in his place
so as to enable him to get back in Amer
ica by the end of April. This will prob
ably be the first diplomatic plum at the
disposal of the president.
Homesteaders Raising Money.
A member of the advisory committee
of Homestead, Pa., has been in Cincin
nati some days raising funds to prose
cute officials of the Carnegie company.
Similar appeals are being made in other
large cities. It is intended to raise $30,
000 for the purpose.
