SECRETARY CARLISLE ORDERS
I he Mints Closed to Silver, Except for
Coinage of Subsidiary
Ad fcilver coinage, except that ot subsidia
ry eo:n?, Waa or dered suspend" led beginning
November 1 n--Tt by S.cretary Carlisle. In
Parryiufjout thii policy the ;;3tv Orlean
mint will ba practically close-i and dismau
tlod arter that date, ani its seveay employ
ees furlough! wiiliout pay. A letter con
taining thesa iostru-tlons aa to discontinuing J
coinage operations va mailed to Supenn-
tsudent Overton Cabe cn :ionday night.
The practical effect of the action taken ty
Hr. Carlisle to convert all silver bullion held
by the Government into geld obligations un- '
der the parity clause of the Eherman A.et.
Secretary Windom in October. 1821, con- ;
strued the law to mean that all Shermaa -no.es
issued apaiast bullion were rcdeema- i
Worn gold. Thi construction cf the law i
na3 been cononrre.i in v. v,i c
Secretaries Fester and Carlisle, aud ha? been
u. mu.;iu operation during the past six
vears. Luder it. P7S iaa aoo
ueemed. The coinage of siivr-r hnitinn w.t ,
standard silver dollars operates to prevent i
Sherman notes being i.-:sucd upon them. !
Silver certifit-ates however, tire issued :
against standard silver doilar3 and are re- i
deamahle only in silver. Thus from the
sarno ba?e, the silver bullion, the Sherman i
notc-3 became gold obligations and eilver I
coined into stndard silver dollars and silver
certificates ifisued upon them became silver "
obligations. The ens pension of the coinage I
of standard silver dollirs, therefore, leaves !
bullion silver free from any farther liability !
of conversion into silver obligations. ;
The closing up of the New Orleans mint
leaves only the Luited States mints at Phila
phia and San Francisco in operation. At
these mints only gold and subsidiary Ellver
will hereafter be coined, unless Congress
should direct to the contrary, and Its action
should bo approved by the President. Of !
the employes in the New Orleans mint thirty
are women and forty men. !
Secretary Carlisle" for some time past has '
been considering the advisability of (-topping '
all fcilver coinage except that of subsidiarv
coin?, and iiuee he has been the head cl the
treasury department only 4,:JS2,321 standard
ti'.ver dollars have been minted, since Julyl
latonly 00 standard silver dollars have been
coined. The coinage of standard silver dol
lars during tu pat fw warn has been as
follows 1S05, 3 950.011; 1S91, 1 758; 1893,
S5,yi3,O00; 1--591, f!,32',000; 18'Jl, $27,000,000.
Tlio total ooinatce of sdver under all Acts
amounts to C-1'23, 1S9,30D. The treasury now
hoidTj cf 6-ilver i"iUion purchased under the
Sherniau Act 137,614,000 line ounces, the cost
of v.-hi h wa, i ?JI.0o0,323: the coiuim; value
of this Imllic-ii ia sii'. r.r dollars is 5177,984,
00J. If thi3 bullion were coined into silver
dollars the profit to the Government on it3
coinage would be nearly $51,000,000, which
sum could be paid out for the ordinary ex
penses of the government or against which
silver certifi-'ates could be issued. Under
the Act of 1373 the treasury holds i f bullion
purchased Ctj5,459 in value.

The Drought Not So Bad After All.
Superintendent Leazar of the peni
tentiary said that so far he considered
the drought had done no damage at the
State farms; that it caused cotton to
mature which otherwise would have
amounted to nothing; that farm work,
rave ploughing, had gone on uninter
ruptedly for week after weeh; that
never before was so great a proportion
of tho crops saved in perfect condition;
that there was no dew and that work
could begin at sunrise in the cotton
field; that in hi3 opinion while the
drought in preventing ploughing is
beginning to work injury in the wes
tern part of the State, it has not as yet
done damage in the east.

THE MORMONS TOO TIMID.
; The State Solicitor Fails to See That
They Have Hecu Threatened.
' Judge Cable, of the Superior Court,
referred to Solicitor Fori the letter
1 sei.t to the four Mormon elders ia
Wake conntv, nctifviag them to leave,
i and which thev referred to Governor t
' Carr. " ,
Solicitor Poll pays that unless the !
. Mormons can shw conspiracy to force j
I them to leave, he cannot eee how the 1
j signers of the letter can be prosecuted.
, As long as the tldars obey the law
thev are entitled to preach, but any ;
i number of citizens may protest against I
' euch preaching and may go so far as :
; to jequett the men to leave the com-
: munity, and yet not violate the laws.
: He has read tho paper presented to the
Governor, and fails to perceive any
: threat. He fee's that so far as the
the State is ooneerned there is nothing
I to be dene.
i If any conspiracy is formed, or any
j injury done the Mormons, he promises
i them they shall have the same protec
! tion as any citizen. Tho solicitor sug
j gests that the Mormons are unduly
! sensitive, and that St. Paul would hare
j hardly taken fright at so slight provo-

! The fall term of the Beaufort Su

THE OCTOBER BULLETIN
Shows How The Farmers Are Betn- i
nlng to Make a Profit on Their
The October bulletin of the Agri- :
cultural Department just issued says:
TLat when the question csrd was tent
out it was supposed the drought then j
prevailing was the only element ot
danger to be apprehended. Euquiry !
was made in ret-pect to this, but the ;
very early past could not bo foreseen, !
from which greater loss resulted in j
some sections than from the drought. I
Previous reports indicated an abun- j
dance of vegetables and breadstuff's. !
It was desired to ascertain what was!
the outlook for the meat supply and
j what progress farmers were making
i towards improving the quality and
1 condition of their meat-produoing
' stock. Commissioner Patterson is so
i deeply impressed with the ceces-itv t
j of North Cavoliaa farmers raising
j their own bread and meat and is so
thoroughly convinced that it is the es
i eeutial policy on which their perma
i mat prosperity must be based, that
j the answers to the question are parSo
! ularly gratifying.
A decided majority of the answers
received show increase of number and
j improvement of both hogs and cattle,
and 95 per cent, say that there is a
i decided tendency of the farmers to
j raise more of their own meat supplies
j p.nd to improve the grade of both cat
j tie and hogs. A large proportion as
. Mga the stock law as the cause of this
i improvement in cattle and hogs. An
i swers t questions of injury by drought
J to certain crops and information of
damage by the subsequent frosts, civ-
i en by many correspondents, relate to
en iy many coi respondents, relate to
portions of the State only where the
crcps were uot fully matured. It is
difiicult, therefore to cah-ulate the ef
fect on the condition of each crop for
the State at large, but from the best
information it is believed th it cotton
is more than C5 per cent, of an aver
age crop at'd it may fall lower. Corn
must recede a few points from its Sep
tember condition; the iucrtased acre
ace of course remaining the same as in
September report. The late Irish po
tato crop suil'cred badly and reports
indicate but little over half a crop.
Tobacco in the eastern counties was
nearly all housed, but in the middle
j and western counties tho frost did
much damage; bow much it is impossi-
bie now to estimate.
'J he mean Novmber temperature is
50 degrees. The wurmcst November
was that of 1890 51 degrees; the cold
est that of 18S7 17 degrees. The
highest recorded temperature for the
month was SO degrees; the lowest 17.
The average date on whi- h the first
killing fro.t occurs hereisOet. 26. From
this it will be seen how phenomenally
early were tho severe frosts thi3
autumn. November is not rainy
month, fcr in oao year only Eix-hun-dreths
of an inch fell during its 30
