of tho precious metal.

gold shipments which have recently
reached over 2 millions. A leading

creditably informed that the German
government is hoarding goleC The

millions of francs, while the Bank of
Germany lost ten millions. This has
been discussed by tho German cabinet
and withdrawals from Loudon and
New York have resulted as estimated:

fact that our coinage is 3 per cent
heavier in silver than that of the
Latin Union is sufficient guarantee
that the coin cannot be thrown upon

augmenting tho volume of circulat

Our silver and gold certificates are a
paper currency so admirable that we
need no change in the present pro
visions of tho law, and the legal tender
quality being obviously increasing,
the existing gold monometalic coin
age can proceed unchanged. Any re
forging of their last link by free
bimetical coinage at whatever ratio
will suffice them.
Any silver legislation should adopt
coinage rates of 10 to l5, midway
between our earliest error of 17921
to 15, and ourlatest error of 1834 1
to 16, thus conforming to the rates of
all other great bi-metallic coinages.
That ratio retains the present gold
dollar and requires the silver dollar
to contain 400 grains.
I remain of the opinion that tho con
current withdrawal of greenbacks iu
some given proportion to the greater in
crease of silver certificates would guar
antee safety to free bi-metallic coinage
at the right ratio by United States
congress, and success against the hos
tility and distrust arising from unful

Spreckles made a complaint to the
secretary that the New York custom
house is discriminating in its polar
iscope tests of imported German beet
sugar, in favor of tho trust and to his
detriment to the amount of $10,000 to
each cargo he imports. He claims' in
many cases that the tests
taken for classification at that
part are not above 90 polariscopic de
grees, while our German sugars are
rarely returned at less than 94 de
grees, while the major portion runs
up to from 95 degrees to 97 degrees.
He cannot understand why this great
difference is made between the ports
of New York and Philadelphia in po
larizing German beet root sugar.

This placard all day adorned the

houses aud private dwellings in the
search for names of people it was
claimed to have been missed by the
regularly appointed enumerators.
This peculiar style of enumeration
created a great deal of indignation in
St Paul where the census was quietly
completed in the regular way at 6
o'clock last evening, and the opinion
was freely expressed that the Minne
apolis enumeration would be declared
illegal and ordered taken over.
Late in the afternoon supervisor
Davenport of Minneapolis announced
that he could complete the work, and
obtain of superintendent Porter per
mission to continue the enumeration
until next Wednesday.
The cause of the trouble is a little
affair which occurred last Thursday
evening. At that time the Minneapolis
census was practically completed and
more than naif of the enumerators had
officially made their reports. Somehow
the rumor got afloat that Minneapolis
had only a little over 138,000 people,

being slowly raised in the boilers of
the new cruiser San Francisco in
preparation for the trial trip, which
has been set for early next month. As
before, the representatives of the Dress
will not be permitted aboard during
the trip, and the utmost care is being
taken in selecting -firemen and coal
passers to see that no reporter is en
gaged unawares. The naval officers
and builders of the cruiser have not
forgotten the bold attempts of the
press to have reporters on the Charles
ton on her trip, and they will
not have a man on who can write a
line if they can help it. The detail of
officers, who are to be aboard the San
Francisco and rate her speed and
horse power, is being prepared. The
contract calls for speed, not horse
power, as in the case of the Charles
ton, and consequently the horse power
tests will be of secondary importance.
The required speed is nineteen knots
an hour, with a bonus of 30,000 for
every quarter of a knot above that
speed, and a penalty of $30,000
for such quarter of a knot less than
that speed. Tho vessel will be pushed
for all there is in her. Prior to going
on her regular trips the engineers
will be thoroughly tested and' several
trips about the bay will bfi"niaae.
Capt Miner Goodall is ou the, list to
command the vessel and the trial will
be made in the Santi Barbara jcha
nel on the line already marked, out. j.
Defending the Harbor.
Special to Thf. Astorun
Sax Fraxcisco, Juno 19. The qnes
tion has been raised as to the capabil
ities of the Monterey for defending
the harbor of San Francisco on ac
count of her light draught. Inspector
Fernaud, the United States naval
inspector, who is watching her con
struction, says of her, that being of
the monitor type and only intended
for harbor defense, it would be un
necessary to make her draw more
water than she has been designed for.
The Monterey will be ready for
launching in about three mouths.
The cruiser San Francisco will
have her trial trip on July 4th, if the
dock trial proves satisfactory.
Some Facts About the Boats and Thoe
Who Man Tlicm.
From 1871 dates the beginning ot
the present life-saving service of the
United States. The service was then
through the influence of Hon. S Kim
ball and Hon. S. S. Cox thoroughly
organized, and the station manned and
officered by those best fitted for this
perilous work. Men, strong, able
bodied and accustomed to the sea,
were appointed, regardless of their
political view3. Thus the little seed
sown by these men of Capo Cod, fos
tered by the Massachusetts Hu
mane Society aud by the Na
tional Government, has continued
to grow, until it has developed
into this grand and noble work, ex
tending as it does along the coasts
washed by the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans and the shores of the Great
Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. The
total number of stations in commission
for the year ending Juno 30, 1889, was
225173 on tho Atlantic seaboard and
Gulf coast, 7 on the Pacific slope, 44.

The life-boats in general nse on the
New Jersey coast are flat-bottomed,
and the stern not as sharp as the
stem. Some are fitted with air
chambers, while others are fitted with
air-tight copper tanks at each end.
The boats used on the Great Lakes
and Pacific coast are larger and more
complicated in their build, double
ended and deep, and supplied with
two masts. They are, by their peculiar
construction, self-bailing and self
righting the former power obtained
by a heavy false iron keel; and the
latter, by the inside arrangement of
the boat, which consists of air-chambers
placed along the sides and ends, re
lieving tubes and ballast, consist
ing of water-tight cases packed with
cork, placed at midships, and a scut
tle at each to admit a free current of
air under the water-tight deck. Along
the outside of all life-boats, attached
to the gunwale, is a largo roll of cork,
to make the boat buoyant. In many
cases to this roll of cork are fastened
life-lines looped up in fes toons, to
which a person in the water can cling.
Some of the festoons are made so long
that one overboard can easily step
into them and unaided crawl into the
boat. Three of the stations in the
vicinity of the mouth of the Columbia
river have these boats, and a fourth
will shortly be seenred.
