This is the im- portant fuot brought out by the prelimi- nary ftgnrea for hia report on the pro- duction of precious medals given out by Director of the Mint Preston. Tho total figures when officially announced will show a production during the last calendar year of not less than 000. The production for 1893 was Mr. Preston estimates the production of gold by the mines of the United States during to have been 800 tine ounots, of the coining value of an increase over 1893 of the largest amount produced n any year since 1878. The production of silver from the mines of the United Btates is estimated to have approximated ounces, of the coining value of showing a decrease as compared with 1893 of ounces. Although the production in the Jnited States is larger than ever before, Australia has passed the United Btates and become the largest gold producer n the world, and Africa, where a few pnars ago the yield was almost insignifi- cant, has come to the front with only ibout half a million loss gold output ban the United States. These facts will have an important >earmg on the monetary question in the United Status and other countries where here is more or leas clamor for the re- iteration of silver to free coinage on equal terms with gold. They indicate hat there is no ground for the content ion of the silver men that there is not enough gold being produced to supply he demand if gold alone is to be the itandard of value. SCRAM KTjK FOR WHEAT. Grout Kxoltomoiit Over the 1'rices NKW YOIIK, May excitement at the opening of the wheat market to- day exceeded anything seen heretofore during the present advance. It was a wild tumt.lt of buying with almost a total disregard to price, so that July opened from to 83Jo at tho same moment. This represented a rise of from the official clone of yester- day and laljc over the curb price. After jumping up to prices lost a cent aud then swung back again, ad vunciug to S'ij-c. Transit went far ahead of any day yet, amounting to bushels before 12 o'clock, which is almost an unheard of total. Most of this groat business was done dariug the first hour. The excitement at the open ing was intensified by the reported covering of a big Chicago short, who sold a large line of wheat last night, anr when tho market waa put np on him had difficulty in'getting margins. Tbie morning the private wires said he wae buying in his wheat and tbe Chicago market jumped a cent a bushel between sales. The merchant who keeps Pax is up to date and yon may know be keeps a fine line of goods. THERK IS PLENTY OF UOLD. TALK ABOUT SCIIOJTIISLD. Us Visit to Houston May Develop a Candidate. HOUSTON, Tex., May visit of 3-eneral Schofield to the Confederate has developed a political sensa- ion. It is stated that General Schofield vill be a candidate for President, and hat the visit to the military encamp- ment at Memphis as well as the local meeting are in the interest'of his candi-. laey. Generals Wheeler and Joe Johnston, ree silyor leaders in Alabama, are said iO have planned this ail'air. It is said bo be a scheme to cap t me the soldiers' vote and nominute General Schofiuld on a free silver ticket. All this is denied jy General Sohofield, but the talk has >eoome so open that the story is given much credence, t is now believed that Speaker Crisp referred to General Schofield when he alluded to a "Western man with a war record." Wants Uuelo Sum us J'encemaker. WASHINGTON, May United jtates has been asked to act as iuterme- liary ic the trouble between Prance and Venezuela, resulting in a complete erminatiou of diplomatic relations bo ween them, about four months ngo, when the .French end other foreign ministers at Caracas sent reports to heir governments of the lax conduct of public i.Hairs in Venezuela. The Veu- zuolan government now asks the United States to intercede with France in the ormer's behalf. More Deaths Kxpectoil. ELKTON, Md., May reports of the dynamfie explosion yesterday on ,he farm tenanted by William Pyle were exaggerated, but it is probable that the accident will cost throe lives iu addition ;o that of William Hevelow, who was tilled while placing a dynamite cart- ridge under a stump. Frank Hevelow and his 16 year-old, son, who were assisting Farmer Pyle, are not expected to recover from their ujnries, while Pyle is believed to be fatally hurt. May Be Lynched. HUNTINGTON, W. Va., May Charles Bingo, who was arrested at Point Pleasant yesterday on a charge of murdering his two young sons here, was brought to this city today. The train was stopped in the suburbs and Bingo was taken to jail iu a closed carriad. Two thousand people had assembled at the depot and a lynching is expected tonight. The jail is now strongly guarded by deputy marshals. Another Whisky Trust Suit. CHICAGO, May will be made to the United States Circuit Court tomorrow for the appointment of a receiver for the Whisky Trust nnder the bill filed by the Central Trust Com- pany of New York to foreclose the mortgage. The suit is sup- posed to be iu the interest of Ex-Presi- dent Greenhni, Nelson Morris and others. Republicans tor Soiiucl Moiiey. HOUSTON, Tex., May execu tive committee of the Republican League Clubs of Texas has adopted a resolution favoring a sound money plank in both National and State plat- forms. Death Vloe-C'ousiil. ASBUBY PAKK, N. J., May Barger, vice cousul of Denmark at Washington, died today of apoplexy at Ocean Grove. For fragrance and a delicious smoke for pipe or cigarettes Pax surpasses all otbera.' See you get it. An American Citizen Arrested and Severely Maltreated. HIS PASSPORT TAKEN AWAY. I'ut In Cfonlns M'ilh IMurderors and Lodged In ti Lodffed Complaint. WASHTKGTON, May Mnnas- siun, n naturalized citizen of the United States, has made complaint to the Sec- retary of State of bis arrest and impris- onment in Turkey about six months ago. He is of Armeainn birth, and be- came a citizen of the United States by nuturaliziition in 1893. According to bis deposition, he left New York in July 1893, to visit relatives in bis native city of Tokat, Turkey. At nople he showed his passport and eeived n permit from the government to go to Tokat. About three months later be was sum- moned toSamsoon to see a dying nephew. Thereupon he applied to the govern- ment to vise bis permit. The authori- ties took the permit and his passport to show tbe governor, They retained both and gave him a provisional permit, with which be was allowed to go to Bamsoon and return. Oa applying for his pass- port he was informed, after three months' delay, that it had been sent to he vali, or governor general, at Sivae. He laid the matter before United States ionsul J'ewett at Sivas, and was in- foinied by him that his papers had been sect to Constantinople. lu September ;be governor general visited Tokat, and when Manaseiau asked him for his pass- port he told him be should not have be- ome an American citizen. Arrebted and Sent to Prison. "Three days says Manassiau, "seven Turkish soldiers came into tbe uouse where I was with my wife and child, and in spite of my protests that I was an American citizen, and that they tiad uo right to arrest me without tbe information of au American official, they compelled me to go, saying tLe vali wanted me. They took me to prisoo. "Tbe next morning they put me in chains aud manacles and an iron ring around my neck, together with two murderers in a dungeon, and then sent me in a cart to Amasia. "Neither I nor my friends could send telegrams. The messages would be cepted, but not sent. But a messenger was sent to Sivas and information given to Consul Juwett, and yet nothing was done eilher by him or the consul at 3uoi8oon for two weeks. "They .brought me out occasionally to ask if I still persisted in remaining an American when I said I did, they took me buck to jail. "At the end of two weeks I was sent as a prisoner to Constantinople and put in prison. Tbe next day Minister Ter- rell was informed and I was released and sent to him. All Ills Money Stolen. "He heard of all I bad suffered. It was some days after my urripul that n letter came from Consul Jewett, and both he and consul at Samsoon have confirmed the outrage and injury inflict' ed upon me. "I dumfoundod to find, when I was released, that my wife had no ey whatever, all the money that I had, about and my watch havidg been stolen by the Turkish soldiers who ran- sacked my bouse tile night they arrest- ed me. "I sent an appeal by registered letter from Constantinople on December 12 last to the President of the United States, begging him that telegraphic instruc- tions be sent to Minister Terrell to secure justice for me. "No answer came. There had not been even a word against me from any Turkish official, and even the chief of police at Constantinople ezpressed as- tonishment that I should have been ar- rested and put in chains, when my record was BO clear. My crime was that I had become an American citizen." SIGNS OF BISTTEU TIMES. Improvement In the Stool nutl Iron Industry. NEW YORK, May Iron Age today says: The improvement baa now spread to practically every section of the country and to every department, with very few exceptions. The con- sumption is growing aud the demand is certainly very much better, buyers hav- ing given up resistance. Unless some fatality throws back the iron trade, the balance of this year promises to be quite good. Thus far only very few eastern con- cerns have followed the initiative of the west in advancing because the improvement in prices is ]ust begin- ning to reach them. The soft steel market is up, with little material available for July delivery. The steel rail trade is in better shape, although current reports are exager- ated. The wire industry is quite active. There has been a sharp advance in all nails. In the foundry iron business (here has been quite some activity in the west and a very decided hardening in the east. THE MOKNING NEWS is served by carriers for 1 cent a day, brim full of the latest news. MOST BE APPROVED SCHOOLS. Tnsf.rnct.loii GIvoii New York's Presljy- tery Resrardlusr Divinity .Students. PITTSBCKG, Pa., May devo- tional services of tbe Presbyterian gen- eral assembly, at the opening of the seventh day of its session, were con- ducted by Rev. Irvin M. Muldrow, a colored minister from Cheraw, S. C. The question of the relation of the students of Union Seminary to the pres- bytery of New York came up on an overture from that body. A long opin- ion was read, and it was recommended that the presbytery of New York be in- structed and enjoined not to receive students who are pursuing or who pro- pose to pursue their studies in semi- naries not approved by the general as- sembly. This motion was carried by a large vote, and in announcing result, Moderator Booth said that New York presbytery would note the instructions given by its superior authority, and would obey its orders. The opposition to this action was decided, but insuffi- cient to affect the vote of the assembly. The day of prayer for colleges was ffxed for the second Sunday in January. Judge William H. Jessup then took the floor and read the report on system atic beneficence, summarizing the gifts of the church during the year to the various benevolent purposes of its missionary and other boards. He was followed by Dr. Kufus S. Green of Elmira, N. Y., secretary of the com mittee. MR. CARLISLE ASTONISHED. Had STo Idea of the Size of the Soutul- Mouey Movement. MEMPHIS, Tenn., May an As- sociated Press reporter Secretary Car- lisle this afternoon expressed himself as astonished at the magnitude of the sound money demonstration. "I have the greatest said he, "in the ultimate success of the sound money movement. "The wave of silver sentiment reached formidable- proportions, but I think it has about spent itself and is already on the dec'ine. "In nay own state the struggle is a hard one, and I have seldom seen such great general interest in a public ques- tion as is shown there, and, in fact, throughout this section, I trust the good sense and judgment of the Southern people. "No section of the country is more vitally interested in the maintenance of a sound financial policy by tho govern- ment, and none has greater promise of prosperity under sound, economic con- ditions." GUAlimXG THIS MIXES. Trouble Is Expected and lloputles Are Summoned. PrrT3BUB.o, May trouble is expected on tho Wheeling division of the Baltimore and Ohio road, and at the Turtle Creek mine. A Jarge number of miners assembled at Willock station yes- terday and marched to tbe mines of F. L. Bobbins in 11 body, remaining there all night. As a result the mine is closed today and the miners a're out for the G9-cent rate. The strikers today moved on to Snow- den, where the mines of the Pittsburg and Chicago Gas Coal Company are located. Sheriff Richards was notified, and at once sent, five deputy sheriffs there to prevent any rioting. A mass-meeting is arranged to be held at Turtle creek tonight to bring out the employes of the New York and Cleveland Gas (Joal Company, men who aie working at less than the union rate. A force of deputies has been detailed to guard the mines and protect the men who aie at work. Senator Faulkner on Silver. WASHINGTON, May of the silver movement today. Senator Faulkner said: "There has been an attempt to call a silver convention in West Virginia this summer, bat I do not think it will be successful. I opposed the movement as being ill timed and useless in a year when there was no national convention to which delegates could be sent. Even some of the free silver news- papers have declared against the con- vention, and inquiries sent to leading men throughout the state have brought in a great many adverse opinions. the national democrat 10 convention wiU make some oonoes-, sion to the silver men, but this conces- sion will not bo for free coinage. I be- lieve that some satisfactory arrangement will be 'made for the recognition of sil- ver, so that tbe government may not at tbe same time be embarrassed." Martl's Death. Olllclally Announced. WASHINGTON, May 23 con- firmation has been received here of the death of General Marti, the Cuban leader, in a battle with tbe Government troops. Tbe papers found on his body are expected to result in important des velopments, as he was in personal cor- respondence with insurgent sympathizers in the United'States, who have thus far eluded detection. Safe Works Burned. CAMBUIDQB, Mass., iSay plant of tbe Diamond Safe Works, corner of Maine aud 1st streets, this city, was destroyed by fire at about 2 o'clock this morning. The works covered one and a half acres, and consisted mostly of wooden buildinga. The total loss is esti- mated at with a very small insurance. Several firms near by also sustained considerable loss. Tho Government Authorities Power- less to Prevent it. THEIE POWER TOO LIMITED. Carcasses Condemned ns Unfit For Ex- portation Disposed of at eign Countries Alouo Protected. WASHINGTON, May of Agriculture Morton and Dr. Salmon, chief of the bureau of animal industry, are very much exercised oyer the attack made on the effectiveness of the meat inspection now carried on under the act of 1890. The inspection provided for under the act was to meet the demands of foreign governments to which our meats was exported, but the authority given the Secretary was insufficient, and Mr. Morton has tried in every way to induce Congress to cure the defects. The truth has been that while the in- spection separated the healthy from the diseased meat and prevented the export of tbe latter, the Secretary was not clothed with the power to compel the destruction of condemned meat, and this could be sold in the domestic mar- kets. If the legislatures of the states bad taken steps to co-operate with the department by providing for the dec struction of carcasses condemned by the federal inspectors, the inspection would have been rendered effective. But this was not done and tbe Secretary appealed to Congress. Last December while the agricultural appropriation bill was under consideration, he drew up an amendment to tbe inspection act.and urged Senator George and others to in- corporate it in the bill. In his letter to Senator George he "At present, condemned animals, pre- cluded from interstate or foreign trade, are put upon the market where the con- demnation is made. When a swine carcass is found to be alive with trichi- nae, it cannot be sold to go into another state nor for export. But it can be put upon the market where it is killed." The amendment the Secretary pre- pared empowered him to "cause all carcassess which have been inspected, and for any hygienic or other reasons condemned to be tanked, rendered or otherwise disposed of in a way that shall effectually prevent the sale of tho same for human provided a penalty of for violation of the law. The amendment was accepted in a greatly modified form. It doesnoV go as far as tho Secretary desires, but may subserve his purpose. The amend- ment, however, does not go into effect until July 1. Meantime, however, the department objects strenuously to the intimations thrown out that the inspection, as at present conducted, in no wise protects domestic consumers. The Secretary, without the definite authority of law, insists that he has accomplished much. In tbe first place, he has compelled all persons having abattoirs, applying for inspection, to sign a written agreement to abide by tbe regulations of the de- partment and tank all carcasses of cattle, sheep and swine, condemned, except for trichinosis in perk. Of the carcasess inspected during the last fiscal year cattle, 46G sheep and hogs were tanked under agreements of this character, although the law did not specifically compel their destruction. This proportion of the total number of carcasses examined may seem small, but it is held that it should be borne in mind that animals sent to market are gener- ally in condition for slaughter, and, further, that all animals on the hoof discovered to be eick are rejected and not even admitted to inspection. With reference to trichinae in pork, Dr. Salmon says much public misap- prehension exists. Swine are not mi-- croscopically examined for trichinosis save such as are intended for export to only country that de- mands and exacts such an examination. It is purely a an Other coun- tries do not require it and rely upon the people to see that pork is well the only sure method of avoiding tri- chinosis. Dr. Salmon frankly says that he doubts the expediency and effective- ness of a general microsopical examina- tion for trichinas in pork. The results of trichinosis inspections in Germany do not justify it. There are more cases of trichinosis among the people of Germany than any other, and this is attributed directly to the facf that Germans, lulled into fancied security by the rigid inspection eat much of their pork raw or under done, whereas the people of other countries, appteoiating the dangers from trichinae, habifually cook all pork thoroughly. A Pleasant Dunce. The young gentlemen of Proffessor Stonffer's dancing class spent a very pleasant evening at the Hose Hall last night. Tbe evening was devoted to dancing, each gentleman having invited one young lady, Mios Edith Hamilton presided at the piano and played with her usual grace and skill. Old Gold ami Silver.
