This has been a week of crowds. All
kinds of humanity have drilted through

I almost to their limit. Standing in an
elevated place, and gazing down Front
St an animated scene is presented to the
j eye, very unusual lor Wilmington. The
street cars are aomg a --rusning- ousiness.
Extra cars have been put on and they are
! constantly tided. The jolting motion of
I the cars has proved too much for some of
the country people and some veritable
cases of seasickness are reported. It was
not necessary for thtm to take a tiip on
the ocean.
The Press Association meeting this
week, has augmented the croTris. The
men who are rilled with thought, seemed
j anxious to lorget their cures, upon arrival
' here, and with the least attention to the
business of the association possible, es
; caped to the Ocean side on the first day.

roaring surf, drowned the eloquence of aDy

I The editors were delighted with the
j outing, and would be easily persuaded to
come our way every summer.
The Wilmington ilessecger ever
progressive, and adopting all the latest
conveniences for rapid work, has put in
three type-settiug machines, to take the
place of hand setting. They do splendid
work and the readers of the paper are
much pleased with the improved printing
of the paper. Not long ago the Messeu
ger put in electric power in place of
steam, for running I he presses. The

RUSSELL SEEMS STILL SE
CURE FOR GOVERNOR.
The Meeting- Friday BMffht. Fusion
Seems Salisfactory lo Republicans
nnd I'opnlists. Oilils on He HI n
ley Oarrylusr North Carolina.
JouRXAii Bureau,
Raleigh, July 18.
Public iuterest was considerably excited
by the conference ot Senators Butler and
Pritchard, ex-Judge Russell, Chairman
Ilolton, Congressman Pearson, Speaker
Walser and others last night in this city
It lasted until after 1 o'clock this morn
ing. Then maoy at the conference left.
All those present favored fusion on
conditions and what was done last night
leads towurds it. The Republican State
Committee is called to meet here August
10, the Monday before the Populist State
Convention. The latter will meet Thurs
day, August 13. Its date is not changed.
Butler is solid against Bryan, those
Republicans who were with him last
night tell me. Here is what tbey say
further: "The whole thing is to check
this Bryan movement among North Caro
lina Populists. Butler is told that Bryan
is strong here. He is mum, not saying a
word. What we Republicans uced is a
leader; that is one who will talk and act.
It was distinctly understood and ordered
Ust night that we were not to tell the
inner secrets of our meeting. There was
a wide difference of opinion. But we
will say to you Russell will not come
down. There are those ol us who will
bet $1,000 to $1 he will uot come down.
If he does comu down there are some of
us who xvould bolt the State ticket. Rus
sell told us last night that if the committee
thought he was not the proper man to
lead he would abandon his candidncy.
All that xve did leads toward fusion.
August 13 matters will be settled. Then
the Slate ticket will be completed one
way or the other. If Bryan is endorsed
by the Norih Caro ljna Populists, fusion in
the Stale ends. We Tiave let this be dis
tinctly understood. Fusion or no fusion,
McKinley will carry North Carolina.
If the North Carolina Populist leaders
do endorse Bryan many of the voters of
that parly will cast their votes for Mc.
Kinley. They say so openly, and add that
they do not propose to vote for anybody
the Democrats nominate. So far as we
j now know only two Populists of promi
nence oppose fusion Butler and Guth
rie. But Butler's name today is taken
out of this list, for he is red hot for fusion.
He has I be appearance ofbeing mighty
tame. It is the first time he has really
been open lor business. No man can
really yet say just what the result will be.
But there is blood on the moon. Guthrie
hopes to be Goxernor. Butler wants to
take Russell down. To be frank, some
Republicans want him taken down too.
Mew borne and Hileman, two of the Pop
ulist leaders, want Russell to head the
lusion ticket, and favor filling up the
planks cow left in the State ticket. In
case this is done Mewborne will be Secre
tary of State. There is no opposition to
W. II. Worth for treasurer. Ho favors
fusion with all his soul but does not say
so. He is as gentle as a lamb. The result,
is going to be that il Guthrie does not kick
out of the traces he will be put on the Su
preme court bench. A place is opeu for
liim. Maybe he will not accept it. Pritch
ard is anxious lor lusion to continue.
But he stands squarely on the National
platform.
Senator Butler left for St. Louis this
morning. The BepuWicans say he will
head the anti-Bryan forces. He does not
say so. He is reticent. At the depot he
said: "I say every man ought to wait until
the convention meets and considers. We
must xvait development there. We must
stand by the action of the convention."
As he was leaving on the same train
with Butler chairman Ilolton said: ''You
know we did nothing definite last night
We only considered. This is not the time
to talk."

GOLD GOING OUT.
Reserve Is Now Below the NlBAty MU
Hon Mark. M neb Is for Hoarding.
Washington, DC The gold reserve
yesterduy declined to $89,701,336, with
withdrawals of $3,706,800, ol which !,
030,000 was tor export The Jsrge
amouut, nearly $075,000, tukeu presum
ably fur hoarding purpose was regarded
by Treasury oflicifdn iu (he unfavorable
feature of the ilny's traun tioni.
For the past two weeks small amounts
of gold for the purpose have been with
drawn, but yesterday's withdrawals for
that purpose are larger thon for any one
day this year. A reassuring rumor which
reached here to the effect that the New
York national hanks have formed a pool
nnd xvill turn into the Treasury $20,000,
000 in gold for legal tenders was well
received by Treasury officials. It was
pointed out that they were amply able to
do so.
Mint Director Preston on July 1 estimate-el
that thrre was iu the United States
$598,00 ',000 in old, and by the last re
port the nitional banks, of the United
States hud 8178,000,000, and the national
banks of New York slone bad of this
sum $46,000,000 This total ha been in
creased since then, and it is doubtless Dow
nearly $50,000,000. The administration's
policy lo keep the gold reserve up to a
poinl of confidence has never wavered.
This policy, it slated, will be maintained
even if a new bond issue is necessary.
On March 4,1893, there was in the
Treasury 103,000,000 iu gold. This
amount, added to the sum realized from
j the bend sales since, make 9390,000,000.
By subtracting from this amount the
gold ou hand elay, $89,000,000, shows
I thatsince March 4, 1898, $307,000,000 in
.t ,.1,1 f.na : , 1. i rr.
B""-- "-' iwu Hiuiumwii. iroiBsxry
officials attribute the heavy withdrawals
to foreign holders of American aecurltie
throwing them upon the market.
In view of the fact that the Treasury
has lost since July 1 $13,000,000 ia gold
and present indications point to further
withdrawals this week. Treasury officials
who have had confidential relations with
all former bond issue's, say that it will Im
much easier and more advantageous lo
the government, if a bond issue has to be
made, to do it before the gold reserve
reaches the limit of $60,000,000. If tlie
national banks, however, it is said, come
to the relief of Ihe Treasury, a lKnd issue
may be n verted altogether, certainly for
the next lew months.
