WASUINGTOK , April 22.—While it is an open fact that the president is endeavoring' to secure an international, conference on the silver question, the closest reticence in regard to the whole subject is maintained at the White House and treasury department. Mr, S. Dana Horton, as confidential representative of this government, has spent a year or more among- the finan cial officers of the governments of Great Britain, France, Prussia, Austria and Italy for the purpose of ascertaining their views on the subject of bi-metalism, and he has made elaborate private reports on the results of his mission. Ho is now in Washington and is a frequent visitor to the stoto and treasury departments. Since bis return from Europe the correspondence on this subject has been wholly with our ministers at foreign capitals. It is said that the reports received from different countries have satisfied the president of the advisability of an international conference, and that he has practically decided to take tho initiative in the matter. It is understood that ho will soon ,i send a special message to congress transmitting the correspondence on the subject. • ney having given the opinion that they should be assessed the same as other personal property.

An Anonymous I'umulilct. . WASIUXOTON , April 22.—There good deal of speculation regarding the sponsors of an anonymous pamphlet which is being extensively circulated in this city„regarding a resolution introduced by Senator Quay directing the senate committee on foreign relations to inquire whether the acquisition of certain parts of the states of Sonora, Chihuahua and Coahguila, north of the fifty-ninth parallel in Mexico is practicable and for the interest of the United States. This resolution was recently reported adversely by the committee on foreign relations, but it has again secured a place on the calendar in another form, and the pamphlet in qtiestion is made up of editorials from nearly one hundred of the principal daily newspapers of the country, all of them opposing the proposition. Partial investigations which have been made afford ground for the belief that tho Mexican government is back of this effort to influence public opinion against the proposition of the Pennsylvania senator GENERAL NEWS.

WASKINHTON , April 22.—Although it has been given out that the approaching visit to this country of Minister Patrick Kgan and Conmil McCreery of •Valparaiso is on leave of absence applied for by themselves, it is now stated in well-informed circles that tho departure from their posts of both officials was in response to instructions from the state department, their presence being required in Washington to consult with tho president and Secretary Blaine relative to tho proposed claim for indemnity on aecount of the attack on tho American sailors. This claim has not yet been presented, the question having been reserved ponding the arrival of the minister and consul in this country.

Attention strict-ancTprompt NKW YORK , April 22.—Within a few days there will bo a conference of prominent eastern Prohibitionists, probably in this city, for tho purpose of looking over the field and deciding upon nn available candidate for the Prohibition nomination for the presidency, A good deal of disappointment has been manifested over tho refusal of General O. O. Howard, commander of the department of tho east, to permit his name to be used in this connection especially as his refusal was based upon tho ground that the work of the Bepublican party Is hot yet completed, and that tho conviction Is deep within him that he must not be instrumental, so far as national issues are concerned, in aiding in the depletion of the ranks of the Republican part}'. Gen. Howard, however, has other grounds besides this for refusing-to lead the total abstinence army on its march to the promised land. Ue says that to give up his place in the army, a place to which he has come after long years of good will of the trade, including novels and stories of all descriptions, too new house to be known as Morrill, Uiggins * Co., and composed of men already known to tho publishing trade, and which will hereafter become the publishers of all the popular literature heretofore issued by the Belford, Clark Co.

It was the afternoon of that day that Eteinno Dcschamps murdered Juliette, the 12- year-old daughter of Jules Diotsch, under circumstances too shocking to bo published in detail. The case was one of seduction and murder. Baker spent yesterday and tho early partof the night in thechapolattached, to the prison. He seemed cheerful aud remained awake until 2 o'clock a. m., chatting pleasantly with the reporters, deputies and members of St. Vincent DePaul society, who were in attendance.

Anarchists In France. PAWS , April 22. —Notwithstanding the fact that a number of leading anarchists are in jail and others have been driven from tho country, those at liberty are still active and holding secret meetings. While the subjects of their deliberations are not known the general belief is that they have reference to the May day celebrations. The police learned yesterday of a number of lodgings occupied by anarchists and a raid -was nt once planned. This morning a number of gendarmes detailed for the purpose, made a descent upon houses where anarchists lived and captured forty-five men who were at once taken to the prefecture and afterwards looked up. A Constable Gets In His Deadly Work. LA('KANQB , Tex., April 23. —Wm. Neese, constable of this county, killed August MiBcher of Uutersville and in- flicteil a deadly wound upon Fritz Mischer, brother of the deceased, and also woumled a third brother in the arm. There wus some feeling betweeu the parties caused by tho arrest of ouo of Misclicr's laborers for carrying a pistol. 4 • hard work and personal sacrifice; and to launch out into politics upon a sea with which ho is my no means familiar, and to secure the certain opposition of all who remain loyal to the two old historic parties of the union, and to do this without a fortune and with little or no means to support a largo family, would be a martyrdom to which few public men are subjected. Not only this, but he has no right in his position as nn of-1 fleer of the army of high grade, to put' himself substantially against tho present executive department, the head of which is a conscientious, Christian man (President Harrison) whose administration of the law has been singularly strong and good. Having thus declared himself out of the race, eastern prohibitionists are experiencing some trouble in finding a willing sacrifice who is strong enough to give tone and strength to the party, and according to the various expressions of opinion it is regarded as probable that they will be compelled to fall back upon Gen. Weaver of Iowa, ex-Ooy- ernor St. John of Kansas, or some other of the old standard bearers of the cold water element. Hired to Commit Murder.

Dunning had Blotter in his pocket directed to an Idaho friend, in which he gave away the whole story. This letter is now in possession of the sheriff, among a vast lot of other evidence.
