in Their Decision.
GLOOMY PEEDIOriONS MADE

In Favor of Silver.
Denver, Colo., A largo number of rep
resentative smelting and mining men of
the state met this afternoon, and
unanimously decided to completely
close down all smelters, mills and sll
ver mines in Colorado.
Resolutions were adopted which de
clare that the world cannot transact
business without silver money; that 'the
inevitable course ot events will quick
ly demonstrate that the enormous sums
of money Invested In railroads, loans
and other property will so depreciate In
value that mono-metalllsts will also ls
convinced that some action must be
taken with silver to restore it to its
legitimate use, which it has held from
time Immemorial. This action will
throw many thousands of persons out
, A new and vigorous move was
made by the smelter men who met here
this afternoon. Tonight ex-Governor
Grant of Omaha who was chairman of
today's meeting, gave out the following
for publication, In accordance with res
olutions passed by the miners' and
smelters' meeting this afternoon. "The
Missouri valley, representing almost
90 per cent of the smelting business
of the United States, has decided to
cease purchasing silver ores, and go
out of business. They, have approxi
mately but 5,000,000 ounces of silver in
stock. With this limited supply the
government cannot purchase the
amount made obligatory by the Sher
man bill during the next two months.
PREPARING TO CLOSE.
Denver, Col., June 29. That the Oma
ha & Grant, Globe & Boston and Col
orado Smelters here, together wltlv a
dozen big silver and lead smelters
throughout the state, will close down
at once has been reported in the East.
These works have contracts on hand
which will keep them in operation un
til January 1, no matter what price sil
ver may be. '
Spokane, Wash., June 29. Mining 4n
the Coeur d'Alenes Is practically sus
pended. Only the Poorman and Tiger,
of the big producers, are yet in opera
tion. It Is not- the prospect of making
money that keeps these two properties
In operation, but the pumps must be
kept going or the mines will fill with
SHUTTING DOWN IN COLORADO.
Aspen, Col., June 29. Most of the
mines of this canjp are practically
closed. Only a few pump-men and en
gineers are .working. The mines will
;.ly clr3e today.
SMELTING WORKS CLOSES.
St. Louis, Mo., June 29. The St. Louis
Smelting and Refining Company, one
of the largest In the country, has de
cided to shut down owing to the sliver
LONDON STOCKS UNSETTLED.
London, June 29. A very unsettled
feeling prevailed at the close of the
stock exchange. Silver securities are
seriously depressed and American rail
road securities are very flat.
MR HARRISON INTERVIEWED.
New Yorld, June 2J. Ex-President
Harrison Is In. this city, and when
asked how he accounted for the shrink
age in silver since the passage of the
Sherman law, Bald he preferred not to
discuss that subject, "but everybody
knows," he said, "that the Sherman
law was only an expedient that was
passed In preference to something
worse." The ex-president thought a
great deal more blame was laid at the
door of the Sherman law than It de
served, but that Us repeal might tend
to restore the public confidence If only
by working upon the Imagination.
WHEAT MARKET 'SUFFERING.
Chicago, June 29. A slump of over
tw cents In the price of wheat oc
curred In the first hour's trading this
morning on account of the monetary'
stringency. In addition to this came a
cable statement that five districts of
India will raise 56,000,000 bushels more
wheat than was raised by them last
year. Other cables also caused a feel
ing. July sold down to 62 5-8 cents, the
lowest price known In this market
PREDICTS A REACTION. ,
Helena, June 29. Ex-Governor
Hauser says: "The present situation
will cause a reaction In favof of sliver.
duces the production of gold from 25 to
40 per cent. The result wlU be that
money will become scarcer. Gold will
go to a premium, and this scarcity will
compel an Increased use of sliver."
Hauser thinks the next congress will
repeal the Sherman law, and pass a
law for the coinage of three or .four
million of sliver per month on Increased
SENATOR JONES' VIEW.
. New York, June 92 Senator Jones of
Nevada this evening said: "I doubt
very much If the Sherman act can be
repealed at an extra session. It cer
tainly cannot be wiped out unless a
substitute satisfactory to the advocates
of free coinage Is provided. Should
congress succeed in effecting'' the re
peal without granting such substitute,
a silver party will be formed and it
will wield such an Influence that to
Ignore It would be fatal to any man
who desires political preference.
TELLER ON INDIA'S ACTION.
St. Louis., June 29. Senator Henry
M. Teller this morning said: "The
action of the government of India
ought not ta have depressed silver to
the extent It seems bo have done, and
I think the fall In silver resulted large
ly from misapprehension. I do not con
skier the action of the Indian govern-
ment as alarming as alarmist people
seem to think, nor do I believe It will
aid In the repeal of the Sherman bill."
FURTHER DECLINE IN SILVER.
. Washington, June 29. Secretary Car
lisle has received a cablegram stating
that the price of silver today In London
was 68 1-2 cents per onuce, at which
rate the silver dollar as bullion Is worth
THE SEALING FLEETS.
San Francisco, June 29. Reports from
the sealing fleet in Bering Sea and off
the coast of Japan show that all the
vessels have been very successful so
far. Up to June 13th, the catch of
twenty-nine vessels In the Bering Sea
fleet was 22,496 skins, and that of fif
teen vessels of the Japan fleet 16,380
stuns, or a total or 3s,siti skins, wnicn,
at the market value of $14 per skin,
represents the sum of $544,264. As only
forty-four out of one hundredand odd
vessels In the fleet have been spoken.
it Is safe to say that the above val
uation can be Increased by $1,000,000.
The Bering Sea fleet has been very
lucky, the only mishap being to the
Henry Dennis, which lost two. boats
and four native hunters. Of the Japan
fleet the schooner Alton lost one boat
containing a hunter and two sailors.
ACCIDENT AT PQRT ANGELES.
Port Angeles, Wash., June 29. A sad

RELIEF FOR NEW YORK BANKi
TUB Clcariu.'Honse Committee Tate
an Important Slop.
TO STOP THK K'lMX . JV.NI0
New York Eni-lmngo In Plitladelpli la Quot
ed at One l er Cent I nitble to K
New York,, June 29. This morning
the clearing house committee virtually
formed a syndicate by agreeing to take
out a lot of clearing loan certificates
for the purpose of putting a stop to
the high rates for money and the panic
that virtually existed 1 in the money
market. Some of the banks, the Gal
latin and Fourth National, for instance,
have never taken out loan certificates,
before and had no need to
do so except for the moral
effect. By taking out certificates
it enables them to lend large sums of
money without Interchange cash In
their vaults. As a result of the com
mlttee's deliberations an Usue of $9,
000,000 in certificates was authorized,
and all members of the loan- commit
tee availed themselves of the opportu
nity in proportion to their capital, ex
cept the Chemical and Importers and
Traders banks. It is thought they will
take out certificates later. The con
dition of affairs In Philadelphia bank
ing circles Is becoming more marked
According to advices received from
Philadelphia this morning New York
exchange In that city is at half a cent
on the dollar. Several large banks in
this city have large balances owing to
them In Philadelphia banks, which the
latter ore unable to remit on account
of the inability to procure New York
exchange currency. Unless the Phila
delphia banks remit this week It is
probable, according to some New York
bankers, that a discount will be
charged on all Philadelphia exchange1
received from dealers here.
HIGH FIGURES FOR CALL LOANS
New York, June 29. The rates for
call loans today reached the highest
figures since the present stringency set
in. They rose to 3 1-6 per diem, and in
terest, equal to about 74 1-2 per cent
per annum. The pinch was particularly
severe this nnJi-nlng. The clearing
house banks Issued $6,300,000 certifi
cates, the largest amount for any day
thus far. This relieved the market,
and was a drop In the rate to 6 per
cent per annum aid- a rally to 20 per
cent. The drop In sliver in London
demoralized the mnrket hnfe. Up to
2 o'clock not a stle was repo.-.td In
the mining department of the stock
exchange. At the consolidated ex
change trading In mining stocks was
BOSTON HOUSES PRESSED.
Boston, June 29. The strain on the
financial situation today was severer
than ever. Stocks were demoralized at
the start. Liquidation was extremely
heavy under pressure. Prices tumbled
badly, the banks calling loans on all
sides, and some of the best houses on
the street hod to pay abnormally high
rates to get carried through.
GREAT DEMAND FOR BONDS.
New York. June 29. Dealers say the
transactions in government bonds have
been on an enormous scale recently.
One authority estimates the sales for
the past fortnight by savings banks,
and kindred institutions, to be about
$4,000,000, National banks were pur
chasers, and full prices were paid In
POPULIST PARTY DYING,
Washington, June 29. Secretary of
the Navy Herbert, who is thoroughly
familiar with the populist movement in
the South, said today that he thought
the populists were not now making any
progress In the country, and that the
teachings of those engaged in the agi
tation has no influence In shaping the
policy of the democratic party. Speak
ing of silver, the secretary said: "1
think the stoppage of the free. coinage of
silver In India Is the greatest blow ever
given the Sherman law, and the free
coinage of silver. Free coinage of sil
ver in India has been pointed to as an
object lesson by the advocates of free
coinage In this country."
IMPORTANT TENSION DECISION.
Washington, June 29. Assistant Sec
retary Reynolds of the Interior deport
ment has made, a pension decision,
which will be welcome news to the
laree number of women who ministered
to wounded soldiers In the hospitals
during the late war. They are to be
placed on the pension rolls. The ques
tion arose upon a communication from
the commissioner of pensions as to
whether those women who were super-
Intending the diet of the sick and
wounded Kil.liprsi wre miiIUo.I in jn-
slons under the provisions, Assistant
Secretary Reynolds holds that these
persons are entitled to pensions.
CHINESE USING DYNAMITE.
Portland, Juno 29. Shortly before
midnight a loud explosion was heard
at Seventh and Gllsan streets. It
proved to be in a Chinese wash house
where an explosion occurred only a few
days ago. The rear of the house was
shattered by a dynamite cartridge, and
considerable damage done, but as far '
as is known no one was hurt. It Is
supposed both attempts to blow up th-.
building have been made by a China
man who keeps a laundry Just across
the street. The Chinaman In whose
place the explosion occurred sold out
a few months ago to the laundryman
across the street, but recently he re
turned and started another wash house.
I,t Is supposed that the deed was done
TRAIN ROBBER CAPTURED.
Arkansas City, Kansas, June 29. A
tough-looking character boarded the
north bound passenger train at Okla
homa City today, carrying a large par
cel. After the train was well out of

pelled him to stop the train and then
ordered him to go ahead to the engine.
As they stepped to the ground the rob
ber allowed bis gaze and gun to slight
ly shift, and the agile conductor felled
him with a blow on the Jaw, and beat
him Into submission, with his own gun.
He was placed in Jail at Wichita, Ho'
was equipped with two sticks of dyna
mite, besides the gun.
