Olean Democrat, The (Newspaper) - May 1, 1890, Olean, New York KTEENKGE8. The Olean Democrat. VOL. XI OLEAN, CATTARAUGUS CO.' NEW YORK, THURSDAY, MAY I. 1890. NO. 2i WEEKLY THADE REVIEW. MARKETS AFFECTED BY THE PROS- PECTIVE SILVER INCREASE. A Reaction Set? Jn After the Sensational Advance In General Belief IB In Favor of the Proposed Silver Bill. Reports from fche Interior Favorable. Grain Kxports Iinrge. NEW YOKK, April G. Dun Go's, weekly review of trade says: "The markets are all influenced by the prospect of an increase in currency based on silver. The street has assurance, in tele- grams from Wash ncton, that the bill adopted in caucus vi ill be passed, and the addition of at least of bullion notes yearly is expected to lift all prices. The average prices for all commodities rose over 1 per cent, from the 10th to the 22d, but has since declined about half as much. Opinions are much divided about the effect of the silver bill, if passed, some believing that a brief advance in prices will be quickly followed by a decline when it is found that gold begins to go abroad. But the more common belief is that the measure will work safety, stimulating prices and commercial activity to some extent, without disturbing the gold standard values. "Trade reports this week are favorable, ex- cepting from the region affected by the floods in. the Mississippi valley. Great damage to sugar plantations seem inevitable. Three of the trunk lines are interrupted and their losses will bo considerable. At Galvestou and Florida business is dull. But at all northern centres of trade the situation is very satisfactory. "The exports of grain continue large, not- withstanding the advance in prices, and fur- nish the only reasonable excuse for that ad- vance. In any event a large surplus of wheat will remain on hand July 1, and the reported injury to winter wheat will be, to a great ex- tent, balanced by the increased acreage of spring wheat which higher prices will cause. Cotton receipts and exports are both f ailing far behind last year's, ani the floods and rains are expected to affect this year's yield to some extent. "No reason is perceived, beyond specula- tive activity, for advance in pork or in oats, but the belief that the currency will be greatly expanded tends just now to render all prices somewhat fictitious. The treasury has taken in during the past week more than it has paid out, but the receipts of money from the Interior have kept the money market comparatively easy. The figures indicate a heavy excess of imports over exports for the month, but there are no present symptoins of an outgo of specie. "The business failures during the last sever days number for the United States 179, and for Canada 218, as compared with 214 last week. For the corresponding week of last vear the figures were 186 in the United States and 27 m Canada." RESTRICTION ON THE PRfSS. SPIRTING MATTERS. of the llmeball (J.uncs Yester- at Two TriwUft.

Rio DE jAieEmo, April The provis- ional government has issued a decree placing the publication of "false news" and "alarming either in news- papers or through the transmission of telegrams, under the provisions of the de- cree of Dec. 23, 1889, which subjects the accused to military jurisdiction. The publication of false news, injurious to the stability of the government, comes thereby under the classification of con- spiracy against the republic and its gov- ernment. The decree is severely criticised though the government declares that it does not intend to restrict the liberty of the press, but simply to put a stop to the literary activity of its enemies. xln an article written by Dr. Aristides Lobo, ex-minister of the interior, the fol- lowing statement is made: There must exist, enveloped in a cloud of mystery which the provisional government has not been able to penetrate, an element that is conspiring against our present institutions and against the future of the republic. There is something singular in the re- ports which from time to time spring into circulation and which are becoming more and more frequent. They originate simul- taneously at distant, points and spread over the country as if conveyed by a net- work of wires. The insurrection of the soldiers was previously announced at dif- ferent places. The provisional govern- ment could perceive that some hidden hand was touching the springs of the plot against it, but this hand it was not able to discover. News from the interior states that much commotion has been caused by the reports from Rio. In the state of Rio de Janeiro the police forces in the small were withdrawn to the capital.

BEKLIX, April vote was taken among the employes of twenty-five found- eries in Chemnitz on the question of ob- serving May day as a holiday. The result of the voting was that two-thirds of the men signified their opposition to the move- ment. As Chemnitz is a Socialist strong- hold the vote is supposed to indicate that the balk of the workingmen are apathetic. A Machinists' Tnion.

There was a great rush down the btreet to spread the news. At fir.st it was rumored that Kemmler had been executed. At the time the reprieve was received at the prison Rev. Dr. Houghton and Chap- lain Yates were in Kemmler's cell praying with him, and it was thought best by the warden not to disturb them until they had finished. Some few hours before a tall, thin young man who looked as if his face had been cast in a waxen mould and some of the wax had ad- hered to it in spots, drifted into the prison in company with a gentleman. He was Harold P. Brown, the electrical expert, who started the Westinghouse dy- namo as a killing machine. He had come expecting to work the apparatus which was to push Kemmler out of the world. As soon as he heard the news he said: "Postponed again; I suppose I may as well go back to-night." It was hard to realize that there was any man in the world who would become so depressed at the temporary lease of life given to even so cruel a wretch. But that was the impression Brown created and it was the cause of a great deal of comment. It was 11 o'clock in the morning that Mr. Durston first heard of a reprieve. Lawyer Sherman assured the warden that he was working with no ulteiior motive and moved by no outside influence beyond a desire to be of use to an unfortunate man in appointing himself Kemmler's counsel. Mr. Sherman's writ of habeas corpus from Judge Lawrence was dated Monday. Warden Durston refused to recognize Sherman as Kemmler's lawyer until Judge Dwight of this place executed a legal doc- ument guaranteeing in substance that as Kemmler's legal friend Sherman was sound and O. K. The writ of habeas cor- pus ordering him to produce Kemmler's body before Judge Wallace at Canan- daigua the third Tuesday in June at 10 o'clock in the forenoon and, inferentially, not to interfere with said body electrically or otherwise meanwhile, was handed to Durston and made public at p. m. At o'clock David B. McNeil, who does the notary public work for the prison, went to Kemmler's cell with Durston and attached his signature to the regulation document praying to have his body pro- tected and delivered as aforesaid. The document was read to the murderer by Warden Durston, and it was with great pride that the man who had learned to write with the death chair waiting for him put one of his innumerably executed signa- tures on a real document with seals and a generally formidable aspect. He was proud of the solemn and business-like act, although he had but a faint idea as to the meaning. In fact it had little or none. The habeas corpus for which Kemmler was bepjriiiu having been gran tad twenty- four hours before his petition was signed. When the news of the reprieve became public the interest of the public centered of course in Kemmler. As soon as the news reached the street everybody was anxious to know how Kemmler had taken the naws. He did not bear it for almost two hours. religious advisor-, were him. YVarden Durston did not pro- pose to disj -irb them. He said he was sure Ke'imiler wouid be cool and not think much a'.iont it one way or the oilier.
