Washington, May 3—The agitation
of Europe and notably England in
favor of t he rehabiliatlon of silver as a
money metal is being observed with
groat satisfaction by the administra-
tion for it is regarded aa strong confirm-
ation of the correctness of the princi-
ple which President Cleveland has so
steadfastly adhered to throughout
thick and thin and sometimes at t he
risk of his own popularity with the
party. The president has oontended
that the true and stable equality of
gold and silver oould be brought
about, and maintains, only by agree-
ment between the great financial na-
tions of ihe world. With this conven-
tion he had been obliged to resolutely
oppose ail attempts at individual no-
tion by the United States when the ex
treme silver men declared there oouid
be no hope of oonsnmation and desired
an international agraement.
Tha president has replied that the
Aim aod steadfast adherence to the
line of policy initiated by the repeal of
the silver purchasing saotions of the
Sherman aot, mnst Inevitably4 bring
about the desired reenlt. One of the
I nr poses in view then was to relieve
the United States from the danger to
which it was subjected by efforts to
maintain unaided by any great floan
oial powers, integrity as money metal
of a vast silver oirenlation. Europe
has prospered nnder old conditions and
was well satisfied to allow the United
States to bear the burden. The presi
dent’s theory was that by suspending
fnrther efforts in that direction the
United States would cause European
nations to feel the need of a larger
circulating medium and share at least
with us the hardships of a monetary
stringency. Therefore the movements
now in progress in England and Ger-
many andi Franoe are regarded by the
administration people an evidenoe of a
successful working of the president's
Great importance is not attached to
the attempt initiated' by Mexioo to
eeonre another conference, thongh it
is not trne that the president refused
to join in the movement, for as a mat-
ter of fact, tha Mex can government
has not yet made any tangible proposi
tion and has confined its efforts to
sonnding other governments to learn
how a formal invitation would be re-
ceived. And notwithstanding the
rosy promise held out by the European
agitation, onr government has not yet
been satisfied that a satisfactory inter-
national agreement can be reaehed in
the near fnture.
Tha pressure has not yet become so
severe ae to warrant this belief on oor
part that such nations as Great Brit-
ain and Germany are ready to aban
don their long cherished oonvlotions
and take- np a doable standard. Prob-
ably some kind of an agreement might
be reached now, bnt according to views
taken in fananoial quarters here it
would probably not realize our desire
to pat silver on a perreot equality with'
gold, and It is thought wold postpone
indefinitely that restoration. Thera
fore It is probable oor government will
pursue a conservative course, declining
to take the initiative again in view of
a fruitless conference already held and
bids their tima until the united pow-
ers, and partionlaYly Great Britain,
are preoared to invite the United
States to join in a conference
which shall have before it some die
tinot proposition looking to the rehab
illtatlon of silver and with a sufficient
power lodged in It* members to insure
a practical outoome.
Senator Sherman speaking today of
the London bl metallic convention and
the telegram sent by himself and oth-
ers nddreat-ed to the lord mayor of
London, expressing sympathy with the
movement, expressed the hope that
the convention would lead to the cell-
ing of another international monetary
conference and said: “There is no dt
vision of sentiment among oonserva
tlve people as to the neeessity of re
gaining silver as one of the moneys of
the oonntry. The only question we
have disonesed in oongrees is whether
we can have free oolnege without de-
monetizing gold. There Is a division
of opinion as to what would bs the res
nit of an attempt by the UnltedStates to
alone maintain sixteen ounoes of silver
to one ouooe of gold, when In open
market we oan buy thlrty-onnoes of
silver without an ounoe of gold. While
I have always opposed the free oolnege
of silver, I have none the leee desired
that silver should be need to the at
most extent possible as a money metal,
providing only it does not plaoe nse on
th* single standard of silver and drive
gold from the oonntry. My own opin
ion is it is better to reoognize it at
once as afaot that onaooount of the
vast increase in prod notion of eilver a
ratio should be based on the present
relative market veins of silver and
Senator Teller said: “As to the ef-
fect of the telegram sent to the Man-
chester meeting by Senator Sherman
and other senators who have not been
known as stive? men, I think the tele
gram will encourage bi metallism by
show.cg even . those who'oppose free
coinage of silver have come torso
ognize the necessity of a double stand-
ard, and it will be seen from this date
that while difference of opinion may
exist among Americana as. to how we
oan eeonre the fall use of silver es e
standard money none exists as to the
necessity of the nee of both gold and
silver terms mint equality.”
Coart of Private Land Claim,.
Denver, May, 3—A Times Washing-
ton epeoial says: An tffort is being
made by Interested officials of the gov-
ernment and members of congress to
entirely close np all oases before the
court of private land claims before
Janjuary 31, next, when this court ex-
pires. This court meets at Denver,
Santa Fe, Taoson and other points in
Colorado, New Mexioo aBd Arizona.
Chairman Sayres, of the house com
mitree on appropriations, today receiv-
ed a letter from Attorney General
Olney, calling attention to the fact,
and also to the fact that unless an ap
propriatlon was made to give the dis-
trict attorney additional help that the
court would expire with very many
oases in those 6tatee and territories
nnadjndicated Olney states that the
oonr*-. had done ex -elle.it work and be-
lieves it necessary that an appropria-
tion of 130.000 be made to oomplete the
adjudication of the pending oases be-
fore the oonrt expires. Chairman
Sayres had a conference tflth the first
comptroller of the treasury today in
respeot to the matter and if this office
favors the appropriation it will there
fore be made and all oases pending
will be closed np and the oonrt will go
oat with a olean record.

Washington, May 3—The Repnbli
oans ohangad the programme when the
senate met today. Although it was
evident that a quorum was not present
no Republican made the point, and
the senate proceeded immediately to
the prelimihary routine of business.
At 12 o’clock the tariff bill w»8 taken
np Senator Alliaon suggested that
the pending amendment to change the
date when the bills are to go into effect
from Jane 18, Jane land 30, should be
passed over for the present.
Senator Chandler gave his idea of
what the tariff bill should have been
should the Democrats have been trne
totheChtoago platform and obarao
terized the bill in its present form as a
long way removed from that declara-
tion of principles.
When Chandler took hie seat, Sena-
tor Quay, of Pennsylvania, resumed
his speech which he has been deliver-
ing in serial form for the last two
weeks. The senators smiled and nod-
At 4 o'olook, the honr set for the
Demooratio canons, having arrived,
the senate at 4:03 on motion of Sena-
tor Harris adjourned until tomorrow
at 11 a. m._
Washington, May 3—There was no

taken np with consideration of the riv-
er and harbor bill.
At, 4 o’olook Oatohings sought to
have a general debate until the dose
at 5 o’olook. Some opposition was de-
veloped among the RepnbHoans, when
Catohinga moved to close the debate
for twenty minntes, and on this de-
mand the previous question was or-
dered, and on motion agreed to. The
debate was resumed and Boatner, of
Louisiana, opposed the method of im-
pro iogibe Red River of Louisiana,
according to the present plan
At 5:30 p. m the house adjourned.
An Klephnut’a Lira in Danger.
New Yobk. May 3—The park board
is considering a pr. position to kill Tip,
the man killing elephant. Tip has a
record of killing eight men and he
made several attempts to add to his
viotims since he has been in Captivity
ark. Tip made a second attack on
[eeper Snyder recently and Snyder
bad a narrow escape from death. This
induoed Dlreotor Smith of the mena-
gerie to recommend to the board that*
the brnte be killed. The commission-
ers finally decided to grant Tip a re-
spite for a week. In the meantime,
they will oonsult experts to find out
whether some way oan be devised to
care the beast's temper. If he oan ba
made to behave, bis life will be spared.

Cleveland, May 3—Nine hundred,
men Blept last night in the armories
with bayoneted sentries ready to
aronse them. I here was no renewal of
the trouble. At 3:30 a. m., a squad of
polios under Captain Gates was sent to
Newberg, where large iron mills are
located. The Poles In that district
1 »te 1 a it night were determined to raid
the wire mills today. The military are
in readiness to go to the aid of tha
polios, t he foreigners who compose
the disorderly element live in Newberg
principally. Socialist agitators have
daring the winter ► soared large num-
bers of converts there.
Long before the earliest risers had
started down town today tbs police
had taken possession of the public
sqnare. They are looated at every
oorner and cross walk and a squad of
officers oooupled the speakers etands.
As soon as people bound for work ap-
peared in the ’streets the work of the
polioe began and continued all day.
No one was allowed to stand in one
plaoe aay length of time, bnt all were
kept moving. Little knots of yester-
day’s rioters gathered here and there,
bnt were qnlokly dispersed by the pol-
ioe who walked to and fro with drawn
The first notice of tronble today was
received from the Cleveland Spring
Bed company on Wason and Hamilton
streets, stating that a gang of men at-
tempted to break into the plaoe and
drive ont the ^workmen i he patrol
wagon, fall of officers was dispatched
to the soene, but the crowd had al-
ready dispersed and disappeared.
While Superintendent Alien, of the.
Standard Foundry, and a friend were
driving to the works a volley of stones
was thrown at the carriage which was
badjy battered. A shot was fired from
Casey bridge. A crowd assembled
abont the works, composed of the
striking moulders and their sympath-
At noon at the Cleveland Pittsburg
docks where a gang of men were un-
loading, the rioters tried to drive the
workmen away. A fight ensued but a
patrol wagon with officers soon reaeh-
ed the tpot and dispersed the mob and
work was resumed.
As the day wore on it became evi-
dent there will be no general attempt
on the part of the rioters to mass their
forces. The polios are constantly on
the alert and various military com-
panies are still at their armories where
they pr< bably will be kept under arms
several days. Four hundred men
struck at the works of the H. P. Nail
oompany today because of the dis-
charge of one of their number, the men
olaim without sufficient cause.
