Washington, Aug. 28.—In view of the heavy speculation in silver reported here, and the condition of the money market, the director of the mint desires tocorrect some misstatements that have recently appeared in tin* newspapers. "There seems to be,” said the director to-day, “a general misapprehension as to the operation of the new silver law in case the price of silver should advance to parity. Some of the papers state that in such case the government will cease buying, while others hold that we will then have free coinage. If silver should reach its old parity, the government would continue to buy 4.500,000 ounces a month, or 'so much thereof as might be offered’ under the provisions of the present law. The new law does not provide that purchase shall cease when silver reached its parity, but that the government shall not pay in excess of SI for 371'4 grains of pure silver, or, what is the same thing, shall not nay in excess of SI.2929 per line ounce, the amount of pure silver in the silver dollar being 371 !4 grains. “If the government paid $1.2929 per fine ounce (480 grains) it would be paying exactly SI for 371 '4 grains—that is to say, the market value of the pure silver in the silver dollar would be exactly equal to tho par value of the coin, so that the government could lose nothing by continuing to buy at that rate, which the law contemplates. While this would not be free coinage, and in tho absence of future legislation there is no provision for free coinage, it would be practically free coinage for 4,500,000 ounces of silver a month. That is, we would receive from depositors 4,500,000 ounces of silver and give them for it the exact amount of money which 4,500,000 ounces would make in coin. Of course, the government could not pay in excess of that rati*, because if it did the value of the siver in the silver dollar would be greater than its value as a coin, which would a losing operation.”   _______ Resigned us Requested. Washington, Aug. 28.—At the request of the secretary of the interior. Governor Wollley of Arizona resigned his office and the resignation was accepted. In response to the request for a statement as to the cause of Wolfley s retirement, Secretary Noble to-nigt said Wolf-ley’s personal or official character had not been brought into question, lie wa> an honorable gentleman and he (the secretary) had been for many years, and was still his friend. Yet while this was so. he believed with the president that a change in office will he to the intere>t of all concerned._____ A Compromise Measure. Washington, Aug. 28.

D., Aug. 28.—The republican state convention reassembled to-day.

The ticket was completed as follows: Lieutenant governor, G. A. Hoffman: secretary of state, Mr. Rirmseud (renominated); treasurer, W. W. Taylor, of Redfield; attorney general. Robert Pollard, Bonhomme; superintendent of public instruction. Cortez Salmon, of Turner: commissioner of schools aud public lands, Thomas Ruth. Kingsbury: commission of labor and statistics. Ii. A.

Missouri Republicans, St. Loris, Auk. 28.—The republican state convention met to-day at Jefferson City, Missouri, with Senator McGinnis as temporary chairman. After the appointment of the usual committee a recess was taken until three this afternoon. Upon reassembling, the temporary chairman was made permanent. The platform endorses the present administration; endorses the wise and businesslike course of the Twenty-first congress in its work in crystallizing into law the principles of the party enunciated in 1888 on the currency; regarding the farming interest as laying at the base of all business prosperity and declaring it to be the primary duty of our legislators, national and state, to foster that interest so far a- it ran be done by legislation, opposes monopolies or trusts, affirms confidence in the republican congress keeping the pledge made in tile national platform that it will pass a tariff measure that will meet tho condition of all classes of industries and labor, and will enable the party, by adopting tile suggestion of Secretary Elaine, to obtain among our sister republics that reciprocity in trade and internal good feeling that must iii a short time make tin western hemisphere tin* market of tin world. The course of Speaker Reed is endorsed. A resolution was offered by one of the negro delegates endorsing the force bill arid urging upon the senate of the United States tile necessity of passing it, so honest, and fair elections may be held in the south. Considerable, and at times fervent, discussion followed The resolution was finally adopted in a modified form. The nominations were: James K. Merrifield, of I’ettis county, railroad commissioner; Frank U. Sever, of Newton county, superintendent, of public schools. Hoosier Democrats. Indianapolis, Aug. 2*.—The democratic state convention was called to order this morning, with ex-Governor Gray as chairman. The platform, which is very long, declares that the electoral vote of Indiana was obtained for Harrison and Morton by the most flagrant crimes against the ballot box, ever perpetrated in an American commonwealth; that these crimes were committed under the direct auspices of William Wade Dudley, treasurer of tin* national republican committee, and by the procurement and connivance of the leaders in this state and nation: that the administration of Benjamin Harrison has made itself accessory after the fact to thoso crimes by shielding the criminals from punishment aud even by rewarding them for their knavery, and that the brazen prostitution of the machinery of the federal court for the district of Indiana by its judge and attorney to the service and protection of those conspirators against tho suffrage, constitutes one of the most infamous chapters in the judicial annals of the republic. The force bill and McKinley tariff bill are denounced in the bitterest terms. Governor Gray, un taking the chair, spoke for over an hour, dealing principally with state issues. His reference to Cleveland was received with applause. Claude Matthews was nominated for secretary of state on the second ballot. lie is the most extensive farmer in the state and his nomination is something of a tribute to the Farmers’ Alliance. J. O. Henderson, editor of the Kokomo Dts)>ntrh. wa< nominated for state auditor.

Sr. Joe, Aug. 28.—Tho first business before the national encampment of Sons of Veterans to-day was the election of national officers for the ensuing year. For commander-in-chief, L. I. Webb, colonel of the Kansas division, and W. E. Bundy, colonel of the Ohio division, were the favorites. After several ballots Colonel Webb secured the honor.

The ladies aid society this afternoon elected Mrs. Ella L. Jones of Altoona, Pennsylvania president, and Mrs. Hayes of Bloomington, Illinois vice president. DIDN’T WANT TO BORROW. A Boston Broker Who Decline* All Offers of Aid. Boston, Aug. 28.—A news agency here says it is reported of the Porter, Lovell & Co. failure:    The business of the house was most largely the sale of commercial paper. It dealt liberally with its customers and with banks, was prompt in all its engagements, and there has been no more popular note brokerage concern east or wcM. It has annually handled since it" corporate organization in 1885 from $10,000,000 to $00,000,000 of commercial paper. It was not a borrower upon its own name, or an indorser of paper it pa"sed. and therefore, it" outstanding liabilities are secured by commercial paper. It was customary for this firm to advance money on paper ahead of sales, to carry such paper in bank as collateral for loans to the company. During the past ten years it lias been called upon and met 1,200,000 of call loans. Upon a capital of $400,000 tin* company has accumulated a surplus of >300,000. The success of the firm induced outside ventures by Walter Potter, mostly in Texas in connection with Chicago and London parties, and in these a fortune is probably locked up. Walter Potter declined any assistance. He says if people will pay their debts to him he will pay his, but he will not borrow of his friends to carry his mercantile associates. Ile could probably have had >500.000 or more if he had not declined all offers. Walter Potter says no failures of consequence are likely to follow on account of Potter, Lovelle Ar Co.’s assignment. The banks will act liberally in helping where money is absolutely needed by the firms that are solvent. The business amounted to Mxty million dollars a year. Potter declines to stat<* the amount of liabilities, direct or indirect, before the assignee makes his report. Evidence is corning to light that tho real cause of suspension dates back to the big Shaw failure. CHICAGO PARTIES INVOLVED. Chicago, Aug. 28.—The trouble of the Boston Hr til of Potter. Lovell Sc Co. is largely caused by the failure of the Brazer river scheme toestablish a deep water harbor in Texas on the Gulf of Mexico. Congressman Abner Taylor, of Chicago, is interested through endorsing notes of its proprietors. J. V. Farwell Sc Co. are interested through having some of their commercial paper in tho firm's hands. This paper is all amply secured and Farwell A Co. are not at all affected. London, Aug. 28.—Moussa Bey, the Kurdish chief who recently underwent a mock trial by a friendly Turkish tribunal on the charge of murdering Armenians, has mysteriously disappeared. The general belief is that he has gone to prepare the Kurds for tho war with Russia for the possession of Armenia, which every one in Constantinople believes to be coming. The liberals are seeking to make some political capital out of the Turkish persecution of the Christians in Armenia, as they did years ago out of tho Turkish atrocities in Bulgaria. With this end in view a movement has been started for the giving of a banquet to the principal Armenians at present in London, among whom are some prominent citizens of that country who have lately fled to avoid becoming victims of persecution. It is intended to have the banquet take place at the National Liberal club and to have addresses delivered by Mr. Gladstone and other eminent liberal orators, who may be relied upon to give due emphasis to the fact that Lord Salisbury has failed to throw the influence of the great Christian nation of England into the scale on the side of the Armenians by omitting to remonstrate with the Porte against the continuance of tin; outrages. Still in tlie Dark. London, Aug. 2>.—The real result or the interview between the czar and the kaiser will not be known for some time, but little scraps of information as to what took place arc beginning to leak out. As they are filtered through Rus-oflieial channels they light on the situation is they admit that the peace of Europe was the subject discussed. The St. Petersburg and Vienna correspondent" of tin* London papers are beginning to send a stream of this kind of news, but the sum of their discoveries is that they an* still in the dark. The Standard's St. Petersburg man ventures the statement that the czar declined to consider Emperor William’s proposals, that the latter got angry, was impatient to get away, and that the military maneuvers had to be hurried up to enable him to go. There was some ground for believing that tin* czar was put in bad humor at the very outset by William’s disregard of his request to steam clear up to St. Petersburg in iii" yacht, instead of landing, as he did, at Revel, in tin: German Baltic province, where he received an ovation from the people. The one fact that seems to bi* beyond question is that no agreement for the withdrawal of the forces which the three powers kept massed along the frontiers was arrived at. Now the idea uppermost in Europe is tho possibility of a meeting between tin* Lo- '-rnporors during the German maneuvers in Silesia. Stork Yard* Tie-! p Felt Baltimore. Baltimore, Aug. 28.—Housekeepers, hotel landlords, the keepers of boarding houses and their dependencies are feeling the effects of the strike of the <witeh-men in Chicago. The ffriee of Chicago dressed beef lm> advanced from fifty cents to $1 per hundred, and, it i* said, that if the strike i> riot soon broken tile price will go higher.

Aug. 2s.-The reader* will remember an account sent from hi re of the “cloud-burst” that deposited large numbers of fish that are known to naturalist* a* natives of Mexican lake* only. Messrs.

Live flies and chopped liver are the chief of their diet. Messrs. S., T. Sc Co. have a faint idea that they are raising young aligators. [Correspondence of The Hawk-Eye.] Rock Island, Aug. 2*.—Tin* controversy which is going on at pri "• ut between our republican and democratic papers as to the merits of the two candidates for congress, aud the rca'ons why Gest should he elected, and why Cable was nominated, affords to a casual observer, and particularly to one who knows a little of the workings of the democratic machine, eon-id* raiment.

Nebraska Prohibitionists. Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 28.—The prohibition convention resumed state work this morning and adopted a platform declaring adherence to the principles of the national prohibition platform of 1888. Among other things it favored were the Australian ballot system, a reduction of hours of labor, woman suffrage, state ownership of railways, just pensions and the election of the president, vice president and United States senators by a popular vote. A supplementary resolution was adopted asking the directors of the world’s fair to prohibit the sale of liquors on the fair grounds, while one to close ^ the exposition on Sunday was tabled. B. L. Paine, of Lincoln, was nominated for governor: George \\. Goodby, a colored man, of Douglas county, for lieutenant governor:    Sichas Matts, of Douglas county, for secretary of state; A.

Chapin, of Lincoln, in the first district. Wisconsin Democrats. Milwaukee, Aug. 28.—The democratic state convention to-day completed Chicago Switchmen Refuse to do tile Work of the Stock Yards Strikers. Chicago, Aug. 2*$ — Twenty-seven switchmen in the employ of the Lake Shore road went out on a strike last night, completely tying up all the business of th** road so far as Chicago i* concerned. Tho trouble grew out of the stock yards trouble. Superintendent Amsden took a crew of men down to the stock yards yesterday afternoon, and when they reached there tho men deserted. Another crew that was sent tiler** also abandoned the engines. Superintendent Amsden then discharged all the men who hail left their engines. This precipitated a strike among the nightmen. At a meeting of the switchmen held this morning, at which Superintendent Amsden was present, thirty-four of sixty men present signed a paper, agreeing to stand by the company and go to work wherever tho company sent them. The remainder decided to go with tin* strikers. Surry They Struck. Clin ago, Aug. 28.—Representatives of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid association are meeting this morning with the grievance committees of the switchmen on all the roads running into Chicago. The meeting was called to devise means, if possible, to settle the difficulties which are now threatening the railroad traffic of the city. Before the meeting opened Grand Organizer John Hall said to a reporter:    “Tho,    situation is just this. If any road attemps to compel its switchmen to handle freight from the stock yards it will be very speedily have a strike on its hands. In this way the mater will be brought to the attention of the association which will make the fight its own. In th:*t way a general tie-up of all roads may become a reality.” Everything looks as if the Alton strike may bo settled by twelve o'clock to-day. The men are holding: a meeting. Many of the men now claim that they are not dissatisfied with Welch, the new yardmaster, and are sdrry they struck at all. Falling Off iii “Feter'a Pesu e.” London, Aug. 28.—Recent advice* from the vatican, believed to be entirely trustworthy, report the pope a* healthy and vigorous to a remarkable degree, considering his advanced age. His holi-ness, however, "ferns to be much worried because of tin* steady dimunition of th** “Peter's pence” contributions. The amount of these voluntary offerings being a species of barometer indicating the condition of the church universal at any given time, the marked falling off now exhibited does not fail to receive the anxious attention of tin* head of the church. Tin* falling off is most noticeable in the Irish and American contributions. His advisers endeavor to account for the situation on the theory of the poverty of the masses rather than on that of their diminishing zeal for the welfare of the pontiff, but this explanation affords but cold comfort. The decrease of revenue has become so marked that his holiness has found it neces*ary to withdraw certain investments in order to meet the expenses of the establishment.* whose cost has heretofore been defrayed out of the Peter's pence. This enforced conversion of the oPot pie cau*< * unmistakable anxiety at the vatican. Tile irish l ambie. London. Aug. 2s.- The prospect of a famine extending over a large portion of Ireland is increasing. The continued cold and rainy weather of the last few week* has lessened the chances of a fair crop of oats, wheat and barley, and nearly half the crop of hay has already been ruined. The tory and unionist papers are trying hard to make it appear that the reports of crop failure are grossly exaggerated by the priests and the nationalist papers for political purposes. Th** "arm* course hasbeen followed by a portion of tho English press on all similar occasions, but the report of the land commission, a body that cannot be suspected of nationalist leanings, settles the matter in tie* minds of the majority of the English people. The Times and Chronicle, unlike the other unionist papers, admit the gravity of the situation and urge the government to action, which the ministers give no sign of taking.    __ An Attempt to Settle the Strike Fail*. Brussels. Aug. 28.—A conference was held here to-day to endeavor to settle the differences between the striking miners and the employers, but failed. The strikers have resumed their attacks on the “blacklegs.” Tile Korinage Coal Strike. Mon*, Aug. 28.—Tho total number of coal miners on a strike in the Borinage district is sixteen thousand eight hundred.and the movement is still spreading. The Peace Stipulations Ratified. City ok Mexico, Aug. 28.—A Guatemala dispatch received to-day by Senor Dieguez, the Guatemalan minister, announces that Barillas last night ratified the stipulations of peace with Salvador presented by the diplomatic corps, which stipulations were approved beforehand by General Ezeta. The principal condition is that the defacto Salvadorian government binds itself immediately to convoke th** legislation assembly which existed before July 22. This assembly will decide on the presidency of Ezeta. This proves that Ezeta has accepted the Guatemalan intervention in the Salvadorian affairs. In this he did well because this affair is not a local but is a Central American interest. This assembly is not a constitutional, but is an ordinary legislative body and as such can only decide questions in compliance with the constitution. Geronimo Bon, the Salvadorian agent here, says he has received no news regarding peace. An Illinol* Farmer Satisfactorilv Demonstrate* His Son's Courage. Hillsboro, 111., Aug. 28.—Jonathan Hartgrove* owns a large watermelon patch and has a chronic fear of th** perennial melon thief. Monday night he loaded a big duck gun with a heavy charge of shot and gave the weapon to his twelve-year-old son with instructions to watch the patch till day-brcak and shoot any one he saw in it. The old man wondered if the boy wa* “dead game," and whether Ii** would really shoot. So Johnson dressed himst-lf and sneaked into the melon patch, lie was just on the point of devouring a luscious melon when th** boy emptied both barrels into the old man’s body. Jonathan I- badly hurt and may die. AIk>uI the Chatsworth Wreck. CarTHA*• I.. Aug. 2s. -Conductor J. \V. Stillwell, of the Toledo.
