j,'" l v r CARLISLE'S STATEMENT Coinage of Silver Dollars Under 1 tfis Administration. tWOLB SAM TOOK A BACK SEAT, ^ttitntgration Qnosllon Stood In tho Way of • Treaty With ,Tnp»n—Rnltroad Coin* , pnnle* tvjll 1'iij- Incruiuod TAX on Immigrants From Canadn—Orders Issued by »*e War Depnrtumnt—Washington News WASHINGTON, Sept. 18. — Secretary Carlisle has mode a statement concern- fAg the coinage of silver dollars under this administration, the coinage being wnder the unrepenled paition of the Vheranan act. It shows that since the »dministrat!on came into power 1.&17,- lisa standard silver dollars have been eoined, of which 520,089 have been seig- *iorago. • The secretary sayst "While the law provides, that redeemed treasury notes way be reissued, it also imposes an express limitation upon the power to re- isstij by declaring that no greater or less •mount of suck notes shall be outstanding at any time than the cost of the silver bullion and the standard silver dollars coined therefrom then held in the treasury purchased by such notes. When •nch notes are redeemed in gold there is no obstacle in the way of their reissue because such redemption does not effect the stock of silver held in the treasury under the act of July 14, 18!'0, but when they are redeemed with silver coined • from the bullion purchased under that act they must be retired and cancelled, for otherwise they would be, after the redemption and reissue, a greater amount of notes outstanding than the cost of the silver originally purchased and then held in the treasury and this is expressly prohibited by the statute. Redemption of Treasury Notes. "The purpose of congress was to prevent the duplication of the currency, •which would be the case if the notes and the silver are purchased with the notes could be Outstanding at the same time. Treasury notes received in the ordinary course of businev- or if redeemed in gold «r exchanged for silver dollars not coined from bullion purchased under the act of July 14, 1890. are not retired and cancelled. AU such notes are reissued. Prior to July 1,1890, silver dollars to the •mount of |8fl,21ti,a«t were coined from the bullion purchased under tho act. The socalled gain or seignorage arising from this coinage was IB.W.bOtf, which was paid into the treasury as a miscellaneous receipt, leaving |2U,4sO,4ol to be held as a fund to provide for tho redemption of the treasury notes, as pro- Tided by law. At the beginning of the present administration this sum of fa9,- 480,461 was still in the treasury and •tandard silver dollars to the amount of 11,597,223 have been coined since that time. Of this last sum, however, !JB20,- 70» was seignoriage, leaving $1,077,144 to be held in the treasury, / liedneui In Kind of Money Demanded. "It appears, therefore, the whole coinage under the act has been $31,OOf»,4H7, and that the amount to be held in the treasury for redemption purposes was |80,f»57,00(». Of this sum $4,131,(M)0 have been used in the redemption of the notes and that amount has been retiroid and cancelled. No treasury note has been redeemed in silver unless silver was de- rounded, the policy nnd practice of tho department iiaving always been tore- deem in the kind of money demanded by the holder of n note. The presentation of treasury notes for redemption iu silver began in August, it.78, when there was a great scarcity of currency of email denominations, and thore was redeemed during that month $t ( 278,2«7, which is the largest amount that has been presented during any one month. "As shown above, there were held in the treasury at tho beginning of this administration fc!0,480,4«l in silver coined from tho bullion purchased under tho act of July 14, !MH). Notwithstanding the fact that $1,107.U28 have been coined •luce that tirao, there are now on hand only tao. now receiving Its n«ntirti<mt and requires au artillery garrison. Fort Colttmbtis, on governor's island, will hereafter fee an infantry post, to bo ultimately, increased to n full regiment. Tho total number of companies now serving ease of the Mississippi is 100. In future it will ba 11», occupying ))1 posts. The gain to the east of course cornea from the wwt, but the number of posts remaining west of the Mississippi is 4U and those are garrisoned by 5(45 companies, without counting the Indian companies, of which there are seven. It will, therefore, be seen not more than two-thirds of the regular army still remains in the west. Congress has ordered the building of two new posts, one in Montana and one in Arkansas. When these are completed other points will be given up and the troops still further concentrated. General Howard's command will be increased by 1H companies; the department of the Platte loses seven, Colorado four and Dakota eight. UNCLE SAM TOOK"A"BACK SEAT. Immigration Question Stood In the Way of a Treaty With J»pan. WASHINGTON, Sept. 18.—In the ratification of the new treaty between Great Britain and Japan at Tokio on Aug. 25, the United States, for the first time since Commodore Perry, in 1854, opened the ports of Japan to our trade nnd negotiated the first treaty of commerce, has allowed a European .power to take the initiative in forwarding the recognition of Japan aa a fully civilized sovereign power. The United States would have preceded Great Bratain in cementing the friendship of the Japanese by wiping out the obnoxious system ot ex-territorial jurisdiction had it not been for the disturbing elements with which the British were not obliged to contend. The most important of these was the question of immigration. Certain western senators have looked with apprehension upon the possibility of an invanion of Japanese coolies, bring, ing with them questions of as grave iin- portano* as the Chinese labor problem. The pressure on this account was so strong 'that the state department was obliged to request that in the new treaty there should be included some safeguards against Japanese immigration. The Japanese government has not been unwilling to consent to this, but the difficulty has been to arrange terms such as would be mutually satisfactory. SHOT WHILEUNTING. D. M.

The Machiaa will then go to Naples, whore tho secretary of the embassy at Rome will take charge of tho Vatican rolica and return them to Rome with a letter from the president to the pope.' . Showing Made by Odd Fellow*. WASHINGTON, Sept. 18.—The annual report of Theodore A. Boss, grand secretary and adjutant general of the Indo. pondont Order of Odd Fellows, says tho business depression throughout the country has retarded tho growth of the order. He says because of the great depression of business in every channel it was generally expected that the outcome would be worse, but instead of a net guin aa iu iwa, a loss of the order would be recorded. The financial statement shows that $ 100,0i)0 has been received and f 7ft,- 280 expended during the year. The grand treasurer has f )8,25l cash on hand, 180,000 of railroad bonds and other items, making the total assets of the sovereign grand lodge f 107/<81. Impeachment ProctixlInRi.

The trial will consume several days and is expected to be sensational. The mayor is also charged with participating in the proceeds of a contract for the sale of real estate to the city.

Sunday they worked harder than ever. Monday it became known their representatives had been dispatched into different parts of the district to get all evidence of irregularities, either in voting or counting, with a view to contesting the nomination before the congressional committee, which meets at Frankfort next Saturday and which is the returning board that makes tho official count and declares the nominee. The committee was known to stand six for Breckinridge and four anti- Breckinri 'go, and as this committee baa done everything in its power for Breckinridge, tho Owens men were alarmed on finding that the Breckinridgo agents -wri-o at work with a view to presenting evidence for ft contest.

It was promptly announced that four members of tho district committee would make ft minority report Saturday and appeal to tlio Democrats. This meant tlr ' Owsns and Ureokinridgo would boni bo candidate* and fight to a finish iu November.

The earlier varieties of grapes are being gathered and the picking of the main crop will be started this week. The general estimate of the crop this year is from tR,- 000,000 to 18,000,000 gallons of wine. This is considerably below average. Hot weather during August did some damage and the only chance for an increase in the amount of wine would be rain during the next few weeks sufficient to swell the berries and add to the amount of juice in the grapes. Standard Oil Company win*. POEBLO, Colo., Sept. 18.— After Oct. I the petroleum refinery of the Rocky Mountain Oil company here will be closed down indefinitely.
