SECRETARY GAGE'S Christmas gift —a currency scheme—Is not very acceptable to a number of Senators who supported McKinley, but It pleases the gold conspirators. A KANSAS man has invented a device to prevent snoring. This will be cheering Christmas news to many a good wife whose sleep is continually broken by the snores of a tired husband. ._ IT was the intention of President McKinley to pardon T. P. Haughey, the Indianapolis bank wrecker, today but for some reason the pardon did not come. McKinley has already pardoned fourteen bank wreckers. WAGE reductions still go on. The northern Pacific railroad company will, on Jan. 1st, reduce the pay of al! car repairers fiom »1.SO to 11.65 per day, and the Lowell Cotton mills will reduce the wages of 15,000 men 10 per cent on January 15th.

Mr. Singerly, the president ot the bank, supported McKinley with a »lew of preserving the national honor. The failure was due to a heavy depreciation In the value of securities held by the bank. RKV.

He Is, DO doubt, following the .shall Ulstorj Repeat Itself. A student of history recalls the fact that when Egypt lost her place among the nations of the earth, three per cenD of the population owned ninety-seven per cent of all her wealth. When Babylon sunk, two per cent of her population owned all her wealth. When Persia bowed her head, one per cent owned ail her land. When the sun of dark despair settled ovar R >ma, 1.800 msa owned all the then known world, and today 900 men own oue-half of all England. We are rapidly following the footsteps of those who have preceded us. In 1850 tbe capitalists owned thirty-seven and one-half per cent of tbe entire wealth of tbe nation. In 1870 they owned sixty-three per cent, thus having almost doubled In the short space of twenty years, and today less than ten per cent own over eighty per cent, of tbe wealth of the nation. Thirty thousand men own over one-half the wealth of a population of seventy-two millions of people. In tbe earlier history of the world, trusts were unknown and leading financiers did not conspire to enhance the value of their holdings by legislation. Force and usurpation were the methods then employed. Combinations of capitalists are rapidly concentrating the wealth of this country. Trusts are robbing tbe people. The gold conspirators seek Do rob the debtor class of what little they have left. YEAR IS CLOSING ENCOURAGINGLY. Situation In Trade Kfjualu and in Many Cases Surpasses Expectations. New York, Dee. 25.—Bradstreet'ssays: Quietness in wholesale lines but pronounced and notable activity in retail trade have been the salient features in this week's trade situation. Price changes, which are numerous, are largely in an upward direction, and the year draws to a close with results as a whole fully equalling- and in many instances surpassing early expectations. Perhaps the most notable feature has been the unanimity with which the trade reports from all parts of the country, with some few exceptions, point to a very heavy holiday trade, in nearly all cases comparing favorably with recent preceding years. In the northwest colder weather has Improved the demand for seasonable goods, and this combinedwiththe usual holiday business has resulted in a good total trade. Proof that the unsettled condition of the wheat situation affects the export business in that cereal is furnished by the figures of shipments this week from both coasts of the United States and Canada, The total exports reported to Bradftreet aggregate (flour as wheat) -1.757,353 bushels, as against 4,fi04,000 bushels last week and G.l'GG.OCO bushels t\vo weeks a^o. Commercial failures in the United States remain about normal. The total for this week amounts to 280. compared with 283 in the previous week. There are 20 business failures reported in the Dominion this week, against 43 last wec-k. ORDErToF EXTENSION ISSUED. By Which the Railways Get Two Years for Mifcty Appliance Kquipment Washington, Dec, 25.—The interstate commerce commission has issued a circular to the railroads promulgating the order extending for two years the time within which the railroads shall equip their cars and engines with automatic couplers and brakes aa required by the act of March 2, 1S9". The commission in its order reviews the testimony given at the hearing accorded the railroad and labor representatives. The arguments advanced are not discussed. The commission, however, says: "Some misunderstanding and confusion appear to have arisen in respect of the question as to what carriers are subject to the provisions of this act. Some appear to understand that their amenability to this law is dependent upon their being subject to the act to regulate commerce. It will be seen by reference to the first section of the act in regard to safety appliances that it applies to 'any common carrier engaged in interstate commerce by railroads.' Mount's llooiii for tho To£H- Indianapolis. Dec. 23. — Lieutenant Governor Haggard has made the announcement that he is for Governor Mount for senator.

M'CLELLAN'S WARNING OF JACKSON'S FLANK MARCH TO RICHMOND. A. Mere Boy, Welt Posted Abont J&ck- «on'» Forctn, Sti-agclcd In t° <;ne Federal Line* Just a I>»y Ahead of Jaclmon'n Story of Adventure. JCopyrisht. 1SPT. by American Pn-ss Association. Book rights reserved.] AR histories, official and otherwise, have failed to explain rho fact that when Leo and Srone- w a 1 1 Jackson united their columns north of Richmond to overwhelm tho Army of tho P<> t o m a c they found the enemy over y \v h o r e nlcrt. Stonewall Jackson wa.s a man of mystery, and it was planned to surprise MuClcllnu's outposts and destroy his right wine; at a blow. In the minds of Lee and Jackson McClellau was resting secure Shut McDowell's ariny'at Fredericksburg wa.s nearest: in touch with his and ready to march to his aid ; that Jackson was still in the Shenandoah valley and Richmond a prize to fall under the attacks which he began to make on June 25, On the 20th Lee attacked the Federal right wing tinder Fitz John Porter at Mechanicsville, and the next day with Jackson renewed the attack at Gaiues Mill, losing in tho two battles over 10,000 men. In place oi ! giving the enemy a fatal surprise, as Jacksou had done in his valley campaign, both Lee and Jackson met with terrible repulse. McClellan's army was still in position and able to hold its own during the week of battles which ended in another terrible repulse of the Confederates at Malveru Hill on July 1. Generals MoClellan and Porter state briefly in their narratives of the campaign that -warning came on the night of June 24 through a Confederate deserter that Jackson's army was moving to attack Porter's right flank and was already in the vicinity. Porter at once prepared a warm welcome for the hero of the valley. He fought on the 2Gth and 27th against odds of two to one and so effectually paralyzed the columns of Lee. and Jackson that they did not strike another blow in three days. Becently the compilers of the official war records have unearthed a document which reveals the source of Porter's warning. It came through a boy who doubtless entered the Federal lines from Jackson's camp as a spy, bnt made a worse than fool's errand of his delicate mission. The late General Farnsworth of Illinois was the first to see through the would be spy's real character. On the 24th o* June he sent him under guard to General Porter with the following note: GEXERAT,— I send you a young man who (:ie- cordinj; to his story) was in otir army and tnkeri prison at Winchester, csc:sned at Lynth- burR and made his way to Richmond ar.d from thcnco to tho lines of my pickets. He is cither spy, scout or deserter from the rebels. Eespcetfully, etc., J. P. FAKNSWOHTH, " Colonul Eighth Illinois Cavalry. General Porter found the boy's story very weak and that he knew more about Jackson's army than about the northern cities where he claimed to have resided. Acting upon the vague hint, he saved the army from another Chancellorsville disaster. Meanwhile the boy, who gave the naine of Charles Rian, was taken in hand by the secret service men and confined under the provost guard at headquarters. His story was written out by Pinkerton. It will appear in full in the supplementary volumes of records, Rian stated that he was 17 years old, born in Iowa, and during childhood resided in Albany and New Orleans. Later he lived in Baltimore, and, wben the war broke out, in New Orleans. He then went to Baltimore again and to Brooklyn. He returned to Baltimore and jo'ined the First Maryland Federal regiment in March, three months before his appearance at the picket lines before Richmond. He said that he was at Winchester and Front Royal in Mar and taken prisoner; escaped at Lynchburg through the aid of some young ladies. From Lyuchburg he went co Richand, hivW2 chaired bis Keder;J DON'T NEGLECT A Common Case of PHee. It May Lead to SerlonsSKesults.

Having heard that Jackson's army •was at Gordoiisvillo, Bian said that ho rnado bis way there in order to see for him.self arirl get information for McClellan. However, ho lonnd that while Jackson was at Gordousville re-enforce- ments were going to him from Richmond. From Oordoiitivillo tho boy traveled on font 40 miluH to Ashlaud, off on Porter's right fluuk, and then set his face toward tho Federal pickcta. In order to got aid from the citizens ou the way he passed himself oil us u Confed- { eratc .scout. Ho wore a straw hat, citi- : zon's coat and trousers procured in Lyuchbnrg. Upon his person was fonnd, when tukcu, a printed sheet torn from a pamphlet, having written ou the margin thet-o words: STEI.TON—S«y to him Dr. Luiupkins is well In Richmond. llcClellan's detectives knew that Dr. Lnmpkius was a zealous Confederate who had lived between Mechanicsville and Asblaud until the Federal army reached the vicinity and then moved to Richmond. The boy said that the memorandum had been given him by ouo of the girls who aided his escape at Lynchburg. He was to have delivered it to a party iu Lyuchbnrg, but had not done so. Rian's account of getting into the Federal lines was very plausible. He said a farmer told him how the lines lay. and that he encountered a Confederate picket in a forest, who fired at him. He ran from the picket, and the picket started in an opposite direction. Eian passed the whole night wandering about, stumbling upon camps which he IDE BESTEEC1C BELT ON EARTH >™ ••-Ls GOOD A r;SK)X SOLDIER AS E7HR"—_ did not expect, to find and could not tell to which army they belonged. At last after daylight he saw some roaming cavalry dressed in blue and walked boldly up to them. They proved to be a scouting party of the Eighth Illinois. Rian puzzled the generals and detectives with whom he came in contact. He seemed to know the names of all of Jackson's commanders and the extent of their forces. However, he thought that Johnston commanded the Confederate army opposed to McClellan, and not Lee. He insisted that he had heard this discussed by thfe Confederates, and Johnston's name was used. His knowledge of local geography was marvelous for a northern boy, but he said that soon after joining the First Maryland regiment he was called upon to scout, and, takiug a liking to it, he had procured a map and studied the country. He had some knowledge of tactics, which he said was due to his glancing over books devoted to that subject. He claimed that it b;ul always been a habit to note down everything which impressed him and to frequently look over the notes and refresh his mind. Then he tore up the memoranda. But when cross examined as to his service in the northern army and his life in the north Rian's story was very weak. He said he thought the colonel of his regiment was named Kelly, but that he was not sure of it or that his company really belonged to the First Maryland, The company when in the field was constantly scouting and never drilled with the regiment. His brigade commander, he said, was a German whose name he could not remember, a safe guess for Federal commanders in the Shenandoah valley at that time. With a knowledge of the country and of military affairs far beyond his years Rian was look id upon as a remarkable boy, and but for the fact that upon his very heels Jackson came, and, with Lee, attacked in the very vicinity where Rian was picked up, his career would have long puzzled the army wiseacres. As it stood they classed him as a Confederate scouting about for information for his side -and prepared with a trumped up story to mislead tbe Federal generals if caught in the act: if not rhar. then a spy sent- into Porter's lines cm purpose to deceive. But this last wa.s a task for an older and a cleverer head than his. Upon the point of his life before entering the anr.y the boy's story was so weak as to lead to the belief that that portion had not been carefully rehearsed. His father's family, according to his account, had been reamers, never stopping long at any point. He .bad lived with relatives in various places, and while he claimed to have hosts of them north and south he couldn't name one, excepting the Brewsters, in St. Mary's parish, near Xrw Orleans. He had letters at home from .many relatives, bat their names had escaped him. Of two intimate young men acquaintances in Baltimore he could recall but one by name. When before General Porter, •who was well acquainted in Baltimore, he could not name a single street not prominent building. Unabashed at his want of knowledge, he adhered to his storv and said dramatically to his in- •gnisitors, "I am as good a Union soldier as erer shouldered a mtisket. : ' In spite of tbe vigorous protest the secret service chief placed him in close confinement as a spy to await further developments.
