WASHINGTON, April 23.—A strong-and vifi-orous fip-ht against the free and unlimited coinage of silver independent of international agreement is to be made by the administration. With th;it end in view officers in .the various executive departments appointed under the present administration are being- urg-ed to organize systematically for the purpose of conducting the contest along- the lines laid down in the president's message. Many of the higher officials wiio enioy reputations at home as stump speakers will probably take to the field early in the summer, and others are even now engaged in writing- letters to their local papers or personal friends, impressing- -upon them the importance of sustaining the administration in the position it has outlined. Federal officers in the several states will be organized as a nucleus about which all who uphold the administration or rather who are opposed to the free and unlimited coinage of silver, will bo expected to rally. ' A Grout Army. There are nearly 200,000 government officers, postmasters, internal revenue officers, customs officers, district attorneys and innumerable contractors scattered throughout the country, and these will bo expected to do the aggressive fighting in the field. Nearly all of the cabinet officers will take the stump for one or more speeches. Secretary Carlisle will certainly make two or more speechos in the Kentucky campaign. Secretary Morton will deliver an address in Chicago and perhaps one in St. Louis. Secretary .Herbert and Congressman Clark will probably speak in Alabama. Postmaster General Wilson is being urged to go west and speak in Illinois and Indiana and may find time to do BO late in the summer. J'j-osUlont in E;inic»t, , The president is represented as being thoroughly in earnest in the proposed crusade against the free and unlimited coin.ig-e of silver and will leave no stone unturned to prevent the fro.e silver suntimeut from gaining headway and to crush it out if possible.

IsniANAi'OLis, Ind., April 23.—An Indiana republican who was in Washington during President Harrison's administration and who takes a hand in national politics said Monda-y that Benjamin Harrison will be the compromise candidate of the opposing, currency factions next j'eur. "He is the coming man," said this man. "He will be nominated on a conservative bimetallism platform and will be elected. ' Of nil tlie republicans spoken of for president he is the only man that comesany- whero near satisfying the' gold men in the east a-nd the silver men in the west.' 1 It is said that political friends of Harrison are already .organizing the west for hin. Recently a good many efforts have been made to induce the ex-president to say something on the currency question, but he maintains sil^pce. One of his friends said Monday: • "I doubt it ttic ex-president will tailc on the currency Question between now and the republican national convention. . Ho Is willing to stund by hJs views expressed in the La Junta speech. Ho believes that his position Is well understood. Ho will not seek the nomination for tho presidency, but If his friends should push him as a candidate on which the opposing factions can unite ho will no: object." It is announced that Mr. Harrison •will go east next month, and will be in New York several weeks. It is said that he will meet there some of the men who insist that the currrency agitation has opened the way for him to secure the nomination without a strng- ple. HarrJaon on Sliver. INDIANAPOLIS. Ind., April 23.—In ex- President Harrison's speech at La Junta, which is said to outline his position on the silver question, Gen. Bar- AN IMPORTANT WITNESS. litrone Evidence Dlicovored Agitljmt Our- rune, the Alleged Murawer. SAN FKANCISCO, April 23.—The preliminary examination of Theodore Durrant, charged with the murder of Minnie Williams, commenced Monday. The testimony of witnesses examined did not materially differ from that given, at the inquest. Currant's overcoat, Minnie Williams' purse, Currant's keys, the bunch of rags which were found iu the murdered girl's throat, the stick which was used to force them down and the broken knife with which the body was mutilated, wore all offered as evidence. When the preliminary examination was resumed Tuesday u. new witness appeared_ and gave most damaging evidence against Durrant, who has strenuously denied having met Miss Williams at any time after three weeks prior to her death. There has been evidence that ho was seen iu the vicinity of the church hat night by one man, three girls and a woman, but only one of these, a young girl, has stated that she recog- nised Burrant, and her testimony is .vuakened by that of a companion who was with her at the time and failed to recognize the prisoner in court. But J. U, P. Llodgson, who lives within a few doors of the church, will testify positively on this point, lie says that on the night in Question, he was passing by the church, when lie saw a young man and a young woman at the church gate. He said the man was evidently urging the girl to consent to some proposal he was making and she was demurring. As Hodgson passed them the young man looked him in the face. Hodgson told his story to the detectives and Durrant was brought up from his cell. As he faced Hodgson the latter, said: "That is the face—that is the man. 1 am sure of of it." Durrant again denied that he was at the church, and said Hodgson was mistaken, but the chief of police thinks that he has found the most important witness in the case. It is now certain that the accused man will seek to establish an alibi, and that that will be his line of defense in the case of Miss Williams and also in the case of Miss Lamout, of whose murder he is suspected.

CJJICAGO, April 23. — The advance in the price of wheat, which began la^t week, going higher each day with leaps and bounds, continued its sensational career Monday on the board of trade. When trading 1 began there was a wild scramble for wheat, July being the favorite option. In ten minutes the price had readied 03 cents, which was 2 cents over the closing price 1 of Saturday; The action of the bears in selling' a lot at 03 cents had the effect of checking- the advance, and there was a reaction to Gl% cents. The market fluctuated between those points for -some time. The Hurrj' Monday was not the result of the rushing of the shorts to cover, because -little of the business was done by the leading bears or their brokers. There was a sudden and general demand for wheat and no one seemed ready to supply it. The trading was so fast and furious that the pit presented a panic scene, and it was estimated that twenty minutes from the opening more than 10,000,000 bushels of wheat changed bunds, Ed Partridge, who is said to be short 4,000,000 or 5,000,000 bushels of wheat, did not seein worried over the sharp advance, although the first hour's trading meant a loss of $100.000 to him. His brokers did no buying for his account, it was said, although Rosenkranz, who usually does business for the plunger, took in 1!50,000 bushels. Armour & Co. make an enormous profit by ,the advance, as the firm is ' credited with owning 12,000,000 of the 26,000,000 bushels in local elevators. Wheat has jumped 7 cents since a week ago, and at that rate their winnings amount to 3840,000. W. T. Baker, president of the board, is also said to be a heavy winner. Partridge's total losses are about §300,000. WASHINGTON, April 23.—The United ates supreme court Tuesday through Chief Justice Fuller, made the following order in regard to the petitions for a re hearing of the income-tax question: "The consideration of the two petitions (the Income-tux petitions) for rohuarini; is reserved until Mondiiy, Jlay (i, when a. full bonnu is expected, and. in that event, two counsel on a ide will tie heard ut ih:it time." ouestiou ol t\ Kt'hearlnc;. Although the order does not explicitly so state, it means that argument will be heard not on the merits of the ncoine-ta-x question itself but on' the question whether or not there shall be rehearing of the suits here- bcfore decided. This argument, it is expected, will include the extent to vhieh the rehearing shall go—that is, vhether it shall be confined mere- y to the points on which the :ourt was evenly divided, the cousti- utionality of the income-tax law as a vholc, or whether the whole question hall be reopened and new argument rande on the question of whether or not rents are exempt from taxation. Judge J»uk«i»ri to Appeur. The announcement by the court is further corroboration of reports of improvement in the health of Justice Jackson, as it was only made after assurances that unless his case took a turn for the worse he would be able to return to his scat on the bench by the date named in the order. Will llu Virtually tin Umpire. The course adopted by the court is a most unusual one, and gentlemen familiar with its procedure for many yusirs can recollect but one instance in hich .1 like action lias been taken, and that w:is in the 70s. Xo .authoritative statement could be secured tif the reasons for the order, but tho theory is advanced that the Courtis again even(3'divided and that, Justice Jackson has been virtually made umpire of the question of reopening the cases.
