The Gold lleaerre.
Waitisotojj Sept. 15. Tho net cash
in tlio treasury at the close of business
yesterday was 8127102441 of which
f.V3049S24 represented the gold reserve.
The gold rcserro has been steadily
climbing upward for tho past month.
On August 8 U cached its lowest point
in the record of the department 852-
189500. Since that data it has In-
creased almost 85000000 and iho in-
crease has largely allayed tho fears of
the treasury oftlclals. During the past
neck It has increased over 81100000.
This Increase is accounted for by the
surrender of gold voluntarily by tho
banks and its exchange for small
notes. During tho past week 8210000
have been so exchanged. The balance
of the Increaso is due to the purchase
of bullion at Helena Denver and Char-
lotte N. P. The largo increase In tho
output of gold in Colorado and Mon-
tana piles up the gold reserve as it
finds Its way directly to tho assay
oQlccs of tho government.
Washisoton Sept. 17. The revenues
of the government have fallen almost
813000000 during tho first fourteen
days of this month as compared with
tho last half of August. Tho receipts
from customs for tho first fourteen
days of tills month amounted to 8V
227000 (in round numbers) against SO-
JjO.OOO for the last hajf of August
while tho receipts fromTintcrnat reve-
nue were but 82202000 compared with
S20C34O00 for the latter half of August.
Tho lo&s is due to tho enormous sums
paid on whisky withdrawn for consump-
tion just before tho new tariff act In-
creasing tho tax from 00 cents to 81.10
pcrgallonwcntlntooffect. The receipts
from Internal revenuo for the first four-
teen days of tho month dwindled to
82037000 about 8450000 below tho
normal and were not counterbalanced
by an luereuso In tho receipts from
customs duo to heavy Importations un-
der tho reduced rotes immediately fol-
lowing the enactment of tho new law
the customs receipts Increasing only
about 13000000. Tho receipts from In-
ternal revenue nro now confined al-
most entirely to tlio tax paid on beer
cigars cigarettes and tobacco and
average nlout 8-50000 per day while
for July and August when so much
whisky was being withdrawn thoy
averaged over 81000000 dally.
It Is not expected tho receipts from
the tax on alcoholio spirits will reach
normal again. before January 1. ISM.
This will havo' tho effect it is believed
of keeping tho receipts ot tho treasury
down to about two-thirds of tho nor-
mal or In other words to about 822-
000000 per month until January 1.
Tltis estimate leaves out of account auy
large increase In tho importations aris-
ing from tho operations of tho new
tariff law. Tho expenditures have
averaged about $34000000 but without
the sugar bounty whtelt is now a thing
of tho post thoy will be reduced to
about 841000000. Tor tho next four
months it is estimated that tho receipts
will bo about 884.000000 and tho ex
penditures about 81? l.OOQ.OQfS

A. It. ended yesterday morning when
Col. Thomas O. Lawlcr of Rockford
I1L was by a majority of cloven votes
elected over Col. I. N. Walker of In-
dianapolis Ind. The closeness of the
vote was a surprise to both victor and
defeated. It took forty-five minutes
to cast and count tho ballot of 049 dele-
gates. Then Commander Adams an-
nounced that the vote stood: Lawlcr
330; Walker 310 the Illinois man win-
ning by the narrow margin of eleven
votes. As soon as the election was an-
nounced peals of applau v. rang through
the opera house. When some semblance
of quiet was restored Col. Walker with-
drew his name and the election of Col.
Lawlcr was made unanimous. In a
brief speech tho new commander-in-chief
thanked his supporters and said
he would work to the utmost for the
advancement of the O. A. B.

A holiday nnder canvass can bo made

congenial splrlU compose tho party
but there Is a common mistake made
by too many of those who take to tho

ot taking guns and rllles to camp when
tho law forbids th t kilting of any wine.
There Is no sens In carrying i wuvon
