Proposed Format ion of a 3S"n\v Trust to Control the Price. DE'XVKK, Nov. 19.—The Rocky Moun- tiiin News says: A syndicate is scheming to obtain control of the silver market with a view to dictating the price of the metal to all silver using countries. A conference to that end was held last week between representatives of the smelters 'of the country and the leading silver producing mines itt Pueblo. More reports are current as to the details of the proposed plan. One is, that a syndicate backed by J. D. Rockefeller and Rothschilds, will obtain control of all the smelters of the United States and Mexico and arbitrarily fix the price of silver, regardless of supply and demand. According to another report the proposition is to have the silver of all the smelters handled through u. single agency, : effecting a saving of a quarter of a cent per ounce. It is understood that there is a hitch in the details. iS, Not. 16.—Advice's via Varna, Bulgaria, confirm the reports of thft massacre of Armenians by Turkish SOldiel-s.' According to them th6 trouble began through the refusal of the Armenians to pay tax on the ground that the raids of the khurds had left them impoverished. A small force of troops was sent to collect the tax and wete beaten. The Turkish governor of Bitlas reported to the government that a S6rious revolt had broken out. and Marshal 55al<i Pasha was ordered to proceed to the plaee with the Fourth Army Corps. Before this imposing array of troops the Armenians quietly submitted. Now comes the horrible part of the story. The governor of Bitlas resolved to make an example and ordered the troops to fire on,the defenseless people. The order Was executed with alacrity, and the slaughter was not stayed till twenty-live villages were destroyed and thousands of the inhabitants killed". The British consul at Varna reported the facts to the British ambassador at Constantinople, \vho protested to the porte. The sultan expressed horror at the crime and ordered Marshal /aki to report, which appears to have seriously involved the governor of Bitlas. To clear himself he charged the British consul at Varna with inciting the Armenians to revolt. British officers are on the spot investigating. BKKVlTIKh. Gear LAND FRAUDS. UheavtlieA 1" Oklalioma Territory. PEHRY, O. T., Nov. 17.—Many of the great frauds at the opening of the Cherokee outlet are coining to .light, but the greatest has just been unearthed in a trial before the government town site trustees. To be entitled to enter land or town lots it was necessary tp go to the government booth before the day of the opening and secure a certificate. One of these booths was located at Orlando, and there most of the certificates for securing lots in Perry were secured. The trial brought out the fact that a lawyer from Guthrie obtained the friendship of D., the man in charge of the government booth at Orlando, got him drunk and poo i selling. got from him a valise full of certificates • . . . without the formality of going to the booth, and sold them at from S25 to §100 each. It is snid similar frauds were perpetrated at the other nine booths. . NEBRASKA GOVERNORSHIP. . Republicans Say They Will Make a Contest. LIXCOI.W, Neb., Nov. 10.— Ih is now asserted on pood authority there will be a gubernatorial contest in Nebraska. The republican' state central committee is v quoted as follows: "The committee' believes it will have no trouble in satisfying the people of the state that gross frauds were committed and that Majors was elected. We continue to get information that the votes cast will elect Majors." It is said the committee will file the necessary papers before November SO, the datu on Which the time for beginning the contest expires. Many of the leading republicans oppose a contest. Col. Henderson and Senator have gone south to hunt, At Richmond, Ky., recently General, Cassius Mtirccllus Clay, aged 84, "The Sage of White Hall," surprised his friends when he led to the altar in marriage Miss Dora Richardson, a young lady many years younger than the general, and whoso marriage was riot expected. The young lady is an orphan, and General Clay was educating her. General Clay stands to-day one of the most interesting characters in America. He was President Lincoln's minister to Rvissia. Governor Waite of Colorado last week issued a Thanksgiving proclamation. After setting forth the usual causes for thanksgiving, he says: "But, withal, the overshadowing threat of our civilization is the constant recurrence of industrial and commercial panics which blight the livesand hopes of millions of able-bodied, skillful beings. Monopoly—robbery under the forms of law—is the curse of our times, and withers the best physical and mental energies of our people. 1 ' lie closes as follows: "Let us bear in mind that only through conscientious regard for the industrial rights of all the people can the blessings of religious and economic freedom be permanently established." At New York recently the board of stewards of the Jockey Clubs and representatives of the Brooklyn, Coney Island and New York Jockey Clubs, met informally lor the purpose of discussing the situation brought about by the popular endorsement of the constitutional amendment abolishing All seemed very reticent as to what transpired at the meeting. It is learned, however, that there has been a general .expression of' opinion as to the effect of the amendment, should it receive the endorsement of the legislature. The opinion of those present appeared, however, to be that the legislature would not act in the matter when.the vast interests at stake are considered. A reporter called on Governor Flower of New York and showed him a copy of Dr. P. J. Gibbons' Syracuse letter requesting permission to attempt the resiiHeitation of Charles' F. Wilson, after he is electrocuted in Auburn prison. Governor Flowersaid: ."lean conceive only one 'objection to the -superintendent of prisons granting such request. The point may be raised that when a person is ocntence'd to be electrocuted,.and if ho should be resuscitated, it might not be possible to ,, A ,»i U ,»j.v™ NO*. li^MeSSberlS of the' TafJahese legation say the fall of Port Arthur iis the nWst disastrous blow China could have received. The place has been pronounced impregnable by the first naval experts ol Gel-many, Modern gun factories have been bttilt there Which rivaled those of KVupp. Its city is given over to making the assembling of modern war materials, in some respects similar to the Brooklyn or New York yards, though three times greater. Moreover, the pick of the Chinese army %vas assembled there. The capture oi the place would necessarily mean the loss to the Chinese of great quantities of material and implements for making them. The chief importance of the capture, however, is in the fact that it gives the Japanese fortifications within Chinese territory from which it will be impossible to ctislodge them, affording a secure base of operations and protected shelter for the Japanese fleet, and the Chinese giin factories would also be at the service of the Japanese. ', TIEN Tsix, Nov. 10.— As cabled some days ago Great Britain sent an ultimatum to the Chinese government demanding that within seven days Taotai Shengbe dismissed and degraded; that the British steamer Chung King be saluted by the Chinese forts and a money indemnity be paid the owners of the Chung King for outrages committed by the Chinese soldiers on board the Chung last August; in default-of which Great Britain threatened that :the British lleet under Admiral Frec- 'mantle would make reprisals. This 'threat had the intended effect and all jtho conditions demanded have been (complied with by China. It'is under- jstood that if they had not been Great 'Britain would have occupied the island !of Chusan, which commands the sea 'communication between Northern and Southern China, as was done in 1841, and China only recovered possession by giving Hong Kong in exchange.

'' Regarding tlio Shooting of Mob Members. COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 10.—The coroner of Fayettc county has called on Colonel Coit, of the Ohio militia, to go to Washington Court House and testify touching the part played by the soldiers under his command when he went there on Gov. McKinley's orders to assist Sheriff Cook in protecting from lynching the negro, Dolby, who confessed to rape and had been sentenced to twenty years in the penitentiary. In pursuit of these orders the militia killed several members of a niob who broke down the door of the court house to get at Dolby. Colonel Coit refused to (jo on the ground that tlie' people at .Washington Court House are so enraged at him over the killing by the militia that his life would not be safe. The governor has been assured that if Coit or Cook go there they would be thrown into prison charged with murder, and afterward dragged from and lynched. The governor has f,nyen assurance to Coit that if he goes there and harm comes to; him the whole power of the state and nation, if necessary, will be sent to his support. Col. Coil replies: "What good would that do my family afle>- I had been lynched'?" The members of Col.'

IOWA PATENT OFFICE REPORT DEB. MOIXKS, Nov. 13, 1894,-j-Thxy primaiy object of our patent law is for « ^ the public good and not for individual ' S. benefit. As an inducement for in- -, dividuals to spend time and money to invent and produce improvements in the arts and sciences it offers a seventeen year monopoly to any one who originates a patentable invention. This is the most equitable law on our books because it makes no distinction between man and woman, boy or girl, race oiv^color,' citi/.en or alien, but > , plaees/all on equality in getting |V patents. 1 The extension ot the legal life of a patent is now practically an imnos- sibility. Delay in the issuepf a patent however practically extends the length of a monopoly of an invention and the _^ ( law, section 4997, makes provision for; >*• the renewal of a forfeited application at any time within two years from the ; date of forfeiture. Taking advantage of such privilege persons have puk- po.scly forfeited more than once and > renewed each time within two years to f extend the length, of their property " rights to their inventions. Under a," 1 recent righteous decision of Secretary $ of the Interior such'practice is henceforth forbidden by that dedisioii which declares "the right of an , applicant to renew a forfeited application under section 4S07 is exhausted when once exercised." Five U. S. patents were iss\ied to Iowa inventors on the 30th ult. Printed copies of .the drawings and specifications of any one patent sent to any address for 35 cents.
