had spent all his life in amassing
money. During the panic of 1*9.1 he
drew *1 l.OOO from the bank and buried
it in the ground near his woodshed.
Every little while he would dig it up
and count it. and then rebury it. Yes-
terday he wanted to feast his eyes on
its yellow heauty. and he went to dig
it up. Nearly crazy, he came into
town to explain that some one had
been before him. and that all his money
had gone. The police are doing their
utmost to find Sharia's gold, but there
is little hope of recovering it.

Washington. Nov. 'ju.—There is dan*
ger that when the treasury has coin-
pie ted the new issue of bonds and
counts tin* total of its gold in stock, it
will find that the reserve is still below
the $ loo, 0J0,000 mark, for if the banks
I are determined to milk the government
of its gold the way is open despite the
I secretary's purpose to watch the cur-
rent outflow, mark its direction and
i then, other conditions being favorable,
reject the bids from such quarters. It
is quite within the bounds of the prob-
able that the netgold gain to the treas-
ury from this issue will not exceed
s:m,000,000. If congress does not act
I upon the president's recommendations
another bond issue in January or Feb-
ruary will undoubtedly be necessary if
the republic is to preserve its credit
The speculatively inclined have not
been conspicuously successful in fore-
casting Mr Cleveland's action, but it is
agreed here that the president will re-
commend the appointment of a non-
partisan commission to consider the
whole currency problem, the commis-
sion to be composed of bankers, busi-
ness men and leading theorists on the
j currency question. This comes from
I very high authority in the administra-
te lecently. when an abscess formed
in the nasal pa ;i re and the discharge
from the nose became irritating. This

Washington, Nov. ?o.— Senator but-
ler. chairman of the joint committee of
the two houses on the personnel of the
navy, is making an effort to get the
committee together for the purpose of
preparing a bill to be presented at the
beginning of the next session to. if pos-
sible. solve the problem of navy reor-
During the last session Secretary
Herbert submitted his ideas to the
committee and also embodied them in ' who
a bill but the committee does not ap-
pear to have been pleased with all the
features of the bill and cons* qucutly
failed to report it to the full committee
or to either house Representative
Meyer, who is a member of the joint
committee, is also the author of a bill
of -iimewliat comprehensive terms, but
it does not uppcar to receive the ap-
proval of the majority of the members.
The committee now seems to lean
toward a bill introduced by Repre-
sentative Catch ings, the distinctive
feature of which i.s the creation of a
reserve list. This provides for an
active list of 10 rear admirals, 00
captains. 100 commanders, :.\">o lieuten-
ants. 7a lieutenants of the junior
grade and a sufficient number of en-
signs. It abolishes the rank of
commodore. The provision regard-
ing the proposed reserve list
renders the change to it in a
manner voluntary, but at the same
time holds out so many inducements
and and provides for bringing such pressure
to bear that it is believed by the friends
of the measure that it would prove ef-
fective iu reducing the force to reason-
able dimensions. It is stated as going
to show the evil of permitting the
present system to continue in effect
that the time will soon come under it
where there will be 100 rear admirals
in service at once.
