A Washington correspondent says that the Treasury officials Are in daily receipt of a Large number of requests asking for Silver dollars of this years coinage in Exchange for Silver certificates or other lawful Money. Many of these requests come from persons who seem to doubt the truth of the monthly coinage statement while others ask for shipments of 1890 dollars with a View to refuting statements that no Silver dollars Are now being coined. These requests have been complied with As fast As received and the Treasury officials desire to Call Public attention to the fact that w Hen Silver dollars Are ordered in sums of or multiples of $500 they Are shipped at the expense of the government but when smaller sums Are ordered the shipments Are made at the expense of the person ordering. There is now in the Treasury $10,506,-399 in free Silver that is Silver we hich May be obtained in Exchange for any lawful Money but the demand just now is so keen for 1896 dollars that it seems probable that by the beginning of october the department will be compelled to decline to pay out Silver dollars except in Exchange for Silver certificates or Treasury note of 1890. The Law requires certain amounts of Silver to be held in the Treasury to cover outstanding Silver certificates and Torasi Ury notes and when the minimum reached Silver payments would be re fused even in Exchange for Gold or in pay ment. Of warrants on the Treasury. The number of Standard Silver dollars coined last August is shown by the official statement to have been $2,050,000 since feb. 1 last $11.212,412, and since a november 1s93, $15,109,491. The Coin age value of the Silver Bullion now oni hand and on which the mints Are now at work is $106,745,200, and it is said to be altogether probable that coinage will be continued at least until the Stock on hand of Standard dollars of 1890 has been increased to about $30,000,000, where it stood when the present administration went into ofheo.$21.48 per capita.

Canadian surveyors arrange to confiscate Alaska Fields. Interest has been aroused at the state department by the recent action of Ana Dian government surveyors in so locating the one Hundred and forty first Meridian As to throw 2 h Gold mines into Canadian territory. This is Likely at any time to precipitate such a conflict of authority As cannot be ignored by the governments of the United states and great Britain. These mines Are now operated by americans thousands of whom have gone to the alaskan Fields since the discovery of Gold. The miners will not readily submit to the rules and regulations prescribed by the Canadian mounted police. The officials of the state department do not in any degree recognize the Survey. A convention joint committee and treaty with be required before this government can acknowledge that the work has been performed. Negotiations Are now pending with great Britain for a convention to have a joint commission of astronomers appointed to Survey and locate the on Hundred and forty first Meridian from mount St. Elias to the Northern limit. The expectation prevails that in View of threatened disturbances which May necessitate the sending of troops by both governments to that Region the pending negotiations on the subject will he pressed to.
