What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

London, April 29. -The Times tomor- row will publish a dispatch from Kobe saying that the Russian and German ministers left Tokio for Kobe yester- day.

Evidently the situation is grave.\ OUR ATTITUDE IS PLAIN. Washington, April 29. -The attitude of the United States .in the eastern trouble has been made clear to the var- ious powers interested. In brief, it- is that the unvarying policy of this coun- try is not to form alliances which may Ineolve it in complications with the countries of Europe or Asia. It is a re- assertion of the policy of Isolation, except in so far as the United States may be able to exercise a kindly or advisory influence toward the adjust- ment of the trouble involeing eastern nations. The foregoing is n9w acceetted by diplomats here as the policy which will guide the United States in the pending European complications over the Ja- panese -China settlement. At one time within recent days there was a pros- pect that the United States might co- operate with Great Britain and Italy in endeavoring to effect • solution of the Japanese-China trouble and the belligerent protests of Russia. France and Germany. Such action, if it had been taken, would not have been in the nature of assistance to Japhn, but merely an exertion of joint influence to persuade China to ratify the peace agreement. It is said by diplomats that as Japan has already ratified the agree- ment, similar action by China would make it effective. Therefore, while Rus- sia, France and Germany were protest- ing at Tokio, the desire of the other powers was to bring to bear their in- fluences at Pekin.

VOORHEES IS A SILVER ENTHUSIAST He Predists the Overthroet of Gold Buie and Triumph of Bimetallism. Indianapolis, April 39.--Senatur Voor- hees in a talk today with the Senti- nel's Washington correspondent, made the following statement of his views in regard to free coinage of sliver: \I do not regret the agitation of the silver question. Sooner or later it has to be definitely settled -whether the laboring and producing people of this country be bullied out of one-half of their debt -paying money, or whether they will stand up like free men and protest and defend the money named and provided in the constitution -both gold and silvereon terms and wadi - (ions as to coinage and use of abso- lute equality. No great national ques- tion is at this time in the way of a full, free, fair discussion of money. The silver question is also to the view less obscured by the craft of its enemies than at any time since the assassina- tion of silver in 1873. No cowardly makeshifts or insincere shams can any longer darken discussiou or betray hon- est councils. \The real and vital issue now pre- sented to the American people is the proposed elimination of silver from our currency, its destruction as a money metal and the use of gold alone. This is what is now meant by the movement against the free coinage of sliver and must be construed in that peoportion. Every form and kind of money must become that much scarcer and balder to get in exchange for labor and the products of labor. Such a policy is to my mind simply horrible. I have not a particle of doubt as to the result of the contest now going on. The enemies of sliver will be driven to the welt Oli- ver money will be fully restored to its old place as a leading factor in the developments and the progress of the country. \I have been in favor of free ceinage of silver at the ratio fixed by Jefferson all my life and I shall neither aban- don my principles nor my party. Dan- ger from the coinage and use of silver never occurred to a sane mind until greed, avarice and unholy speculation reared Its serpent head and aimed a blow at the dollar of our fathers. Since that time we have had nothing but financial vexation, distrust, business depression and ruinous panics.\ AGITATION IN MISSOURI, Denver, April 29.-A special to the Times from Washington says: Senator Vest has dispatched 900 letters to demo- crats in every quarter of Missouri urg- ing that the chairmen of democratic courtly committees be requested to ask the democratic national Central com- mittee to call a free silver convention, and in the eveht of the refusal Of the state committee to do so, as many as favor free coinage Will juin in a call for a Convention. LONDON FEARS ANOTHE \ R\TRIKE Building Trades Workmen to Go Out Because of efon.lesion Men. , London, April 29.-A strike of 26,000 men engaged in the building trades is imminent, and unless specific counsels prevail the walk -out may take olece within, forty-eight hours. Representa- tives of the employers and employes have been in daily consultation for the past month, but difficulties have arisen in which neither side will make conces- sions. The hours Of labor and the wages have been mutually agreed upon, but the employers insist that no workman shall be placed under any disability by reason of his not belonging to a labor organization, and also claim the priv- ilege of sub -letting work to under -con- tractors whenever they may see fit. The Labor Federation refuses to rec- ognize non -unionists, and is also op- posed to sub -contractors or middlemen. The employers threaten to bring labor from the United States if the strike is inaugurated, and It is said that they have already secured agents in New York, Chicago, Cincinnati and other large centers of population.

MAY BE A BIG BEAR SCHEME Estate of James G. Fair Ilse nod Cenral Stared In immense Pease hounee ni Port etieta San Francisco, April 29. -The Evening Bulletin says that the 200,000 tons of \syndicate wheat\ which has been stored for two years in the warehouse of the late James G. Fair at Port Costa has been placed on the market. The wheat is of the crop of 1892-3 and 1894. It Is said that the Luning estate loaned Fair $1,000,000 to \corner\ the wheat, and that the Luning estate manage- ment, nervous for fear that weevil might damage its security, has pressed the Fair estate to take up this loan. The 1892 and 1893 wheat cannot under the rule, be sold on 'change, so the wheat will be advertised to buyer. gen- erally. It is estimated to be worth 81,800,000. Whether sold here or not, the getting of such a quantity of wheat out of port will be a problem. Nego- tiations have been made for a ship- ment of part of the wheat by rail to New Orleans. thence to Liverpool. It would require 5,000 cars to move half the stored syndicate wheat. To ship all the wheat to Liverpool would take seventy-five vessels. WHEAT BROKER'S C#SHIER MISSING Police Believe That C. S. Smith of Son Francisco Is an Absconder. San Francisco, April 29.-C. S. Smith, cashier and bookkeeper for L. W. Mc- Glaughlin & Co., the wheat brokers who managed the late Senator Fair's big wheat deal, Is missing under pe- culiar circumstances. Smith spent Sunday in the office working on his books. At 3 o'clock this afternoon the police were notified of Smith's disap- pearance. A sergeant was sent to Mc- Glaughtires °Ince, where he found sev- eral excited persons, including Mrs. Smith and her parents, who insisted that the cashier had been murdered. The bfgce was in disorder, books and papers scattered about, and on the floor were Smith's hat, coat, vest and cuffs, spotted with blood. The police search- ed the building for Smith's dead body, but no. trace or evidence of a murder could be found. Fifty dollars left in the cash drawer discredited the theory of robbery. The Pelle* have concluded that Smith has absconded. One of the firm's books is missing. An expert is now exanlinint Smith's books.

CHICAGO DeMOCRACY WORKED UP Gold and Bimetallic Foram Prepared to Fight to a Finish. Chicago, April 29. -The political ther- mometer of the local democracy is hov- ering about the fever -heat mark, antic- ipatory of the primaries to be held on Friday and at which delegates will be elected to the forthcoming democratic state silver convention. The interest, not to say suppressed excitement, that prevails has scarcely been equalled In any political campaign in recent years The \Hard Money League,\ an organ- isation of bankers, supporters of the financial views of the president and other gold democrats, and which had originally decided to take no part in the primaries, has entered into the fray. and is campaigning with so much %Igor that it is already claimed that Chicago will send a gold delegation to the Springfield gathering. The efforts of the league are also to be extended at once to other parts of the state, and the indications this far off point to the probability that the convention will be anything but harmonious.

NUMBER 23, ROADS IN CONFLICT Union Pacific Trying to Bluff the Gulf People Out, THE BURLINGTON ROAD IN IT Receiver Trumbull Is Altogether Too Fettittior With Hag Leiter Road to Sett HatogiVillT dart. Denver, Colo., April IL -Although Receiver and General Manager S. B. Clark of the Union Paolfic bas had an order prepared to discontinue connec- tions with the Julesburg branch of the Union Pacific's, Denver & Gulf system, it has been withheld pending a confer- ence with Receiver Trumbull. The complaint of the Union Pacific is that the Gulf has been flirting too much With the Burlington through the con- meetteeteeteZzteett.ez week tbaCiteyeatte branch of the Burlington. For - the 'pun- ishment of Trumbull for his alleged disregard' of the former close relation- ship bete/ben the Union racific and the, Clulf, Mr. Clark had concluded to send* all Denver passenger business around by way of Cheyenne end by withdraw- ing from the Julesburg connection, leave Mr. Trumbull with 160 miles of track segregated from soy other rail- road except its divorcee. the Union Pa- cific. Receiver Trumbull does not seem to have been disturbed by this. The reason is said 'to be that by building the 10 miles of track between Valley and Kersey, or ,Orin station, he can connect the Orin Junction & Cheyenne branch of the Gulf road with the Jules - burg line and at Sterling the Gulf can make connection with the Burlington road. The urlington brand* from Holdridge to Cheyenne will in turn re- neve the Cheyenne line from its posi- tion at the mercy of the Union reaciflo. That such a combination wItE the Burlington would be agreeable to both lines there is no question. The coal which the Gulf road commands is of the highest importance to the Burlington, and as a feeder for coal, iron and agri- cultural products the Gulf would become under such a combination a most pow- erful ally to • road which terminates at Denver. That the Burlington could deal with the Gulf without disturbing its amicable relations with the Denver & Rio Grande is entirely possible and it Is known that it has been coquetting with the former cohort of the Union Pacific with an eye to the vezy combinntion the proposed order of Mr. Clark may bring about at any time. Mr. Trumbull is attending to the cope struotion of a new line from Pueblo to Trinidad which when completed will unite the lines to the south. He has re - pettedly refused to talk about the pro. posed action of the Union Peolfio, but consoles himself with the reflection that the \Union Pacific can not throw us off the track,\ which significant remote may be open to many interpretations The construction the 10 miles from Greeley would at least Moe the Gulf in an Independent poeitkn, considering the Burlington and Union Pacific. and strengthen the line, so /the cost of its construction even in these times would be but a mere bagatelle compared with the manta accomplished. SAN lieksteist 0 TREASURY ICWP1T The Law Strictly Forbids a ortaaalaa Future itrocelpt• Ban Francisco, April 28. -The city of- ficers are unable to solve the problem of how to tide over the city's financial distress until the beginning of the next fisoat year, June 1. While the mayor, the supervisors and the heads of de- partments were wrestling with the sub- ject yesterday, he supreme court was engaged in writ a decision reaffirm- ing its former decisions to the effect that the expenses of one year may not be paid out of the revenue of another. In other words, the city can not mort- gage its future, although the expense of maintaining the fire department and public institutions for the remaining two months of the fiscal year will be 11125.000. to meet which there is practi- cally nothing In the treasury. Taken together with the refusal of the contractors to furnish supplies to hos- IMAM, almshouses and county jails after April so, this is a condition of affairs that has caused the financial commit- tee to do a great deal of figuring to give means for carrying on the func- tions of the government As the salary demands of each month amount to 8136,000, it was proposed that the employes of the city should forego the drawing of their salaries for April until May M. This plan does not meet with the approval of the employes. Af- ter muc'h talking the official gathering adjourned without having accomplished anything.
