THE LOWEST SO FAR
Less Than Ninety Million Dollars of
Golil in the Treasury.
BOND-ISSUE QUESTION REVIEWED
Special Meeting of the Cabinet Will Be
Held Tomorrow to Discuss
Washington, June 3. At no time
since specie payments were resumed,
January 1st, 1879, has the net gold in
the treasury of the United States been
so low as today. The amount is $89,
939,217. January 1st, 1876, it was $114,
193,539. Since that period it gradually
increased until March, 1888, it had
reached $218,818,000. This was the
high water mark. Since then the net
gold holdings of the treasury have been
on the declining scale. While no un
easiness has been felt at the treasury
department, because of the continued
loss of gold from the treasury, still Sec
retary Carlisle is not unmindful of the
fact that a limit may be reached where
the confidence reposed in the treasury
department by the people may be
shaken. How to replete the treasury
with gold has been a problem seriously
considered by the administration for
some time. The issue of bonds is the
usual remedy suggested, but it is known
that the president is not in favor of this
alternative, except as a last resource,
and even if they were issued the treas
ury officials are not by any means con
fident the treasury gold repleted in this
way will long continue. It is contended
that if the plan is put in force it simply
means the government will be borrowing
gold at interest for the purchase of sil
ver, with no assurance that the gold so
obtained will remain in the treasury
longer than the time necessary to take it
out. The suggestion has been made
that the secretary of the treasury has
the power to issue greenbacks in change
for gold, thus increasing the amount of
gold and increasing the volume of green
backs outstanding to the extent of the
gold thus exchanged. The treasury of
ficials say the idea is not a new one, and
has been advanced at different periods
in the past 10 days. There is no law on
the statute books more stringent than
that relating to greenbacks. The secre
tary of the treasury has no discretion
either to increase or diminish the vol
ume of greenbacks.
THE AMICK DISCOVERY.
Successful Tests Made With Patients In
the Last Stages of Consumption.
New York, June 3. The Recorder
will detail tomorrow the cure of several
consumptive patients at Ward's island,
under the direction of the city authori
ties. As only charity patients in the
last stages of consumption are admitted
there, the Recorder claims the cure, for
which it awarded Dr. W. R. Amick, of
Cincinnati, $1,000, has accomplished
something miraculous. It says also that
the Cincinnati doctor has agreed to
keep the hospital supplied with medi
cines sufficient for all its consumptives
at his own expense. As only third stage
cases are taken there, no more severe
test could be invited. It is now gener
ally admitted that the Amick discovery
is a certain specific in the earlier stages
of consumption. Amick has never here
tofore claimed that it would cure more
than 20 per cent, of third stage con
sumptives. In this test just made by
the city three out of four were either
cured or astonishingly benefitted. It is
easy enough for any sufferers from the
disease to test the new discovery through
their family physician, for Amick sends
medicine for the purpose free of cost,
and invites impartial test of it by the
medical profession everywhere.
Itmfus . Hatch's Sermon.

the realm where prices never fluctuate,

was presented for

After disposing of
bis property he ap
pended this sage and
sensible sermon for
the education of his
"It is not my desire or wish that my
boys should go through college, but that
tbey shall receive an education which
will fit them tor a commercial life.
Should either of them wish to become a
lawyer, doctor or clergyman, however
after full determination to be honest in
a collegiate education to that end or ef

mechanical trade which will enable
them to earn an honest livelihood under
any and all circumstances. I request of
my children that they will never use to
bacco in any form, drink a glass of li
quor, wine, or any other intoxicating
drink, or play any games for money, as
their father has had experience suffi
cient to serve for all his posterity."
Villard .Predicts Worse Times.
Washington, June2.-During the close
of the session of the" last congress Henry
Villard was very anxious to have the
Sherman silver law repealed. Today he
recalled the prediction he had made at
that time, and said the people called
him an alarmist and pessimist because
be predicted a financial crisis. He con
"The worst has not been reached.
There will be more financial troubles
than we are having now. I do not care
to alarm people, but the situation has
turned as I pointed out last winter."
"Would the immediate repeal of the
Sherman law help the situation now?"
"I am afraid it is too late," said Vil
lard ; "yet it would possibly restore
confidence. The damage has already
been done. European countries have
become alarmed because of the Ameri
can silver policy, but the repeal would
probably avert some disasters."
Confidence Restored at Tacoma.
Tacoma, Wash., June 3. The finan
cial panic in Taeoma is a thing of the
past. All is quiet and confidence.
There is more money in the city than
there has been for the past two years,
brought here no doubt to meet any
emergency. There is a rumor this even
ing that the Merchants' National bank
sold its fine six-story stone and terra
cotta building, corner of Eleventh and
Pacific avenue, for $195,000. If this be
true their liabilities being but little
more than double that, they will again
be upon solid footing.
Death by Drowning.
Mr. A. Bills was drowned near Clarno's
Ferry the 30th ult. On account of the
melting snow and heavy rains in the
mountains, the river was unusually
high. Tuesday morning Mr. Bills and
his 20-year-old son came over the river
to get some young trees from Duncan
McRae, and on their return, when they
were in the middle of the river, the boat
capsized and they both went under.
They arose and swam toward the shore.
The boy, with great difficulty, gained
the bank in safety and the father was
almost to the shore when a heavy tide
came and carried him back amongst the
rough waves, there to perish. Men
have been dragging the river in search
of his body ever since, but up to the
time of going to press their efforts have
been fruitless. Mr. Bills, with his wife,
four sons and three daughters, came up
from the Willamette valley last October,
and after looking over the country, took
up a homestead in Gilliam county on
the John Day. Antelope Herald.

Death Expected at Any Time.
New Y okk, June 5. At 1 :30 a. m.
Edwin Booth was in a very critical con
dition, and from what can be learned,
his death is likely
to happen at any
moment. Dr. Smith

o'clock and returned
soon after 11. At
11 :30 a bulletin was
posted to the effect
that there was no

night, other than that Dr. Smith was

Edwin Booth is nearly sixty yea rs of
age, having been born November 13th,
1833, in Belair, Md. His father was
the actor Junius Brutus Booth. When
quite young, Edwin travelled with his
father and played minor parts. On one
occasion a sudden attack of illness pre
vented the elder Booth's appearance as
Richard III. The son supplied his
place and scored a great success.
He was then but 16, but since that
time he has played the leading parts in
most of Shakespeare's plays in all parts
of America and Europe. He enjoys the
distinction of being the greatest actor of
his time. He was twice married, first
in 1860 to Miss Mary Devlin, who died
three years later, and to Miss Mary Mc
Vicker in 1869. She too is dead, having
died in 1881. He has one daughter,
