NEW CURRENCY PLAN
Suggested at a Meeting of the Houso
Banking and Currency
CARLISLE STILL HAS HOPES,
Congressman Little's Maidan Speech—Ap-
pointment of Naval Cadets—Sundry
Civil Bill Completed.
Washington, Jan. 15.—(Special.)—There
was a meeting of the democratic members
of the house banking and currency com-
mittee to-day and the proceedings were in-
tended to be kept very quiet. The meeting
was the result of a call by Mr. Springer,
the chairman. When the members walked
in not one of them had any definite plan
to submit and perhaps not one of them
expected anything to come out of the meet-
ing. There was a good deal of talking and
the upshot of it all was It was agreed that
Air. Springer was to see if Mr. Carlisle and
Mr. Cleveland would confer with the dem-
ocratic members of the committee In re-
gard to the proposition that unless the
administration is prepared to yield some-
what in its views on the silver question
that no financial legislation can be looked
for at the hands of the house or congress.
The majority of the democrats on the
committee are anxious to meet Mr. Cleve-
land face to face to assure him that if
there could be a spirit of substantial con-
cessions to silver, not necessarily to free
and unlimited coinage, a bill might be
passed to relieve the country of Its pres-
ent embarrassed and strained condition.
One of the suggestions which has come
from this majority is that when the sec-
retary of the treasury redeems the Sher-
man notes, which are the coin notes, and
are now redeemed in gold, that he shall
immediately destroy them and supply their
place in the circulation by a corresponding
number of silver dollars, coined out of the
bullion purchased by these coin notes.
This, said the majority, would rapidly re-
lieve the treasury or gold reserve of the
pressure of a hundred and fifty millions of
coin notes and at the same time place that
amount of silver dollars In circulation.
The opinion of this majority of the com-
mittee, or of the greater part of it, is*"that
if the administration would be willing to
Issue bonds bearing 2% cents Interest
for banking purposes and the issue of bank
notes to the amount of the bonds utilized
for banking, which should be redeemed in
legal tender notes, the whole matter would
be settled at once, besides putting a hun-
dred and fifty millions of silver dollars In
It is not known whether the meeting be-
tween the president, his secretary and the
democrats will take place, but no one
doubts that if the gentlemen of the com-
mittee want the meeting they can have it.
There are still all sorts of reports In
circulation as to the president's temper
on the subject. It is said that he is in a
bad humor over the defeat of the Carlisle
bill, while on the other hand it is forcibly
asserted that he is "sitting easily in the
boat" and is not at all disturbed.
Mr. Carlisle, however, is known to be
much disappointed at the fate of his meas-
ure, but is not so discomfited that he has
lost hope. Indeed, he Is preparing to pick
his Hints and come again. How he will
come no one 13 prepared to say. All that
can be said Is that he has not given up
SENATE AND FINANCE.
Washington, Jan. 15.—(Special.—The sen-
ate committee of finance is engaged In
tackling the currency question. It gives
out that a3 the house has refused to do
anything In the matter that the duty de-
volves on It to save the country. While
the members are not talking much, the
general impression is that they are work-
ing along the lines of the Jones idea. That
gentleman still asserts that he has no
bill, but his suggestions have met the ap-
proval of the finance committee, to which
he belongs, and the chances are that when
this committee speaks it will advise some-
thing on the line of Jones' suggestions.
Senator Cockrell, who, as chairman of
the appropriation committee, has in charge
the urgency deficiency bill, was to have
appeared before the senate on it to-day,
but concluded not to do so after con-
sultation with the democrats. This par-
ticular appropriation bill ought to have
been disposed of In a short time, but as it
contains the appropriation to carry out
the provisions of the income tax and is
openly fought by Mr. Quay and also by
Mr. Hill to a certain extent, there has
been delay. Mr. Cockrell's Idea was to
force the light on It to-day by letting the
senate sit longer than its usual hours and
then put up a «ood front against Quay's
filibustering. This gentleman has said, as
stated in these dispatches, that if Mr.
Cockrell would wait till the senatorships
from Washington, Montana and Wyoming
were filled and the republican votes from
these states through their senators could
be cast on the Income tax provision he
would interpose no dilatory opposition to
the bill. Mr. Cockrell would not agree to
this and now Senator Quay threatens to
speak in a lilibustering way. .He has his
old speech, a great part of which he
never delivered, ready to start in on. In
fact, he has hud it on his desk several
times in a kind of Intimidating way. Mr.
Cockrell says he intends to push the mat-
ter to-morrow or next day and find out
how much strength, that Is, filibustering
strength, there Is behind Quay.
Senator Dubois told me some time ago
that Quay would find very few republicans
backing him in his present fight. It is
generally agreed that as soon as this
urgency deiiciency bill Is out of the way
In the senate a linancial measure will be
at once introduced and work on it com-
menced. The vacant moments, I suppose,
will be handed over to Mr. Morgan to
utilize in the attempt to put together his
Nicaraguan doll, out of which Senator
Turpie of Indiana so ruthlessly and cruelly
kicked the sawdust some time ago.
Washington, Jan. 15.—The house ways and
means committee to-day decided to report
to the house Mr. Wilson's 'bill to remove
the one-tenth of a cent per pound differ-
ential on sugar imported from countries
giving an export bounty, which has elicited
protests from Germany, Austria and other
nations, and the repeal of which was rec-
ommended by the president.
Chairman Wilson -took the lead In ad-
vocating t/he bill, urging the arguments
Which have been advanced by Secretary
Gresham that the differential violates the
<most favored nation clause in t'he treaties
with Germany, Austria, and certain other
"The differential," said Mr. Wilson,
"puts money into t'he pockets of the su-
gar trust at the expense of our cattle in-
He gave It as his opinion, and that of
the administration, that there could be
no shadow of doubt that the exclusion of
American meat from Genmany on alleged
sanitary grounds was inspired by the su-
gar duty, and said the retaliatory meas-
ures had already done great damage, and
still more sweeping acts of retaliation
were threatened by Austria and other
The republicans opposed the "bill. Mr.
Reed had some sarcastic remarks to make
against the insufficiency of the revenue
crovlded by t'he new tariff, and that It
would be folly to make changes which
might decrease the income o the gov-
ernment. or which were uncertain.
Other republican members deplored What
they characterized as a lack of Ameri-
canism in the policv of the state depart-
ment. They argued that the differential
did not violate treaties and that a 'bad
precedent would be established by per-
mitting foreign governments to force leg-
islation 'by threats.
Mr. Hopkins of Illinois hell that the
export bounties granted by Germany and
her neighbors so affected the sugar bus-
iness taat an offset was necessary in oair
tariff. No formal vote was taken and the
names were not recorded.
RtCKS IMPEACHMENT CASE.
Washington, Jan. 15.—(Special.)—The ju-
diciary committee of the house had a long
and what might 'be called a stormy meet-
ing to-day. It 'met at 10 o'clock in the
morning and did root adjourn until 4
o'clock in the evening, and all the time
things were red -hot. The business at
hand was t'he discussion of Judge Ricks
of tile United States court of Cleveland,
Ohio, district. This is the judge whom
a subcommittee of t'he judiciary commit-
tee went to Cleveland to investigate some
time ago. Mr. Bailey of Texas was chair-
man of the committee and y-sterday his
report was made. It went over till to-
day, and 'hence the long ami warm ses-
sion to-day. The discussion was very
heated and at times bitter. There were
thirteen members present, s- venteen be-
ing the membership. The question of the
impeachment of Ricks was put and re-
sulted in a vote of seven lor and six
against such a course. Five republicans
and one democrat composed the negative
vote, while the affirmative was composed
entirely of democrats. A report directing
impeachment proceedings was by the vote
ordered drawn, and when this comes up
in the committee again on Friday there
will be another vote. The republicans of
the committee claim that they will then
defeat it, as three absent congressmen
will vote for them. Ricks was clerk of
the court before he became judge. He is
charged with having assessed fees in fa-
vor of himself while clerk which were
unlawful, and that after he became judge
he collected these fees. His conduct, if
reported correctly, hardly rises to the dig-
nity of petty larceny. Other complaints
against him have lately developed, but
they have not been inquired into.
THE RICKS CASE.
Washington, Jan. 13.—The house judi-
ciary committee to-day decided to report
a resolution for the impeachment of Judge
Ricks of Cleveland, O. The vote was 7
for, against 6. The vote was nearly on
party lines, but one republican voting for
impeachment and one democrat against it.
Friday Mr. Bailey will present a ma-
jority report to the committee and Mr.
Broderick a minority report.
The supporters of Judge Kicks entertain
hopes that the decision will be reversed.
Four members of the committee were ab-
sent to-day and Friday it will be at-
tempted to adopt the minority report. The
resolution will be presented to the house
Friday as privileged business, taking pre-
cedence over everything else. If the house
adopts it the managers on the part of the
house will be notified to Inform the senate.
The vote was: For impeachment: Cul-
berson of Texas, Stockdale of Mississippi,
Boatner of Louisiana, Lane of Illinois,
Bailey of Texas, De Armond of Missouri,
democrats, and Updegraff, republican.
Against Impeachment: Ray of New
York, Powers of Vermont, Broderick of
Kansas, W. A. Stone of Pennsylvania,
Childs of Illinois, republicans, and Good-
Harrison (D) of Albania refrained from
voting. Absentees, Dayton of Ohio and
Wolverton of Pennsylvania and Terry of
It is thought that both Lay ton and WroI-
verton are opposed to impeachment, and
although Terry Is thought to favor If,
Friday's meeting may change the result.
The discussion lasted for three hours
after the members of the subcommittee
had submitted their views and was rather
Informal. Mr. Bailey spoke several times
very warmly and Mr. Boatner was very
ardent in his advocacy of Impeachment
while Mr. Broderick was the most actively
opposed to the movement. The republi-
cans accused the demccrats of holding
prejudices against federal judges and of
losing no opportunity to strike at them.
SUNDRY CIVIL BILL.
Washington, Jan. 15.—Chairman Sayers
of the appropriation committee reported
the sundry civil appropriation bill to the
Mr. Grosvenor (R) of Ohio presented a
reply to a recent appeal sent to the judi-
ciary committee by Mr. Ritchie of Akron,
O., making supplementary charges against
Judge Ricks of the United States court of
the Northern district of Ohio.
Mr. Grosvenor stated that Mr. Ritchie's
charges incidentally involve ex-Senator
Payne and Judge Stephenson Burk, and
the reply which was presented through
him gave a full statement of the pertinent
facts in connection with the Ritchie
charges. On behalf of those gentlemen
Mr. Grosvenor asked for a full investiga-
tion and complete report, censuring und
prosecuting or exonerating them.
Mr. MeCreary (D) of Kentucky called
up a bill authorizing Lieutenant Colonel
Forwood and Eugene Prost to accept cer-
tain testimonials from the Argentine Re-
public and it was passed; also authorizing
Commander Dennis W. Mullan, United
States navy, to accept a medal from the
government of Chile.
The house went into committee of the
whole for the consideration of the Indian
appropriation, which is $229,000 less than
the estimates and a reduction of $238,7S3
compared with the appropriation for the
current fiscal year. Mr. Holman, chair-
man of the Indian committee, who was in
charge of the bill, explained the changes
made. The changes included an Increase
In the appropriation for Indian schools of
$125,350, making the total amount $1,125,325.
Of this amount but Hi per cent was to be
used for contract schools In pursuance of
the policy recently inaugurated, looking ro
the ultimate substitution of government
for contract schools.
The bill was further discussed by Mr.
Little (D) of Arkansas, Bowers (R) of Cali-
fornia, Plckler (R) of North Dakota and
Brosius (R) of Pennsylvania, but no prog-
ress was made with the bill, and at 1.30
o'clock the house adjourned.
SUNDRY CIVIL BILL.
Washington, Jan. 15.—The sundry civil
appropriation bill for the fiscal year of 1895
was completed by the house appropriation
committee to-day. It carries $38,540,021, be-
ing $7,843,793 less than the estimates and
$2,186,245 more than the appropriation for
the current year. Under the head of pub-
lic. lands, the appropriations include:
Clarksville, Tenn., $15,000; Fort Worth,
Tex., $40,000; Kansas City, Mo., $100,000;
Little Rock, Ark., $58,000.
For the appraiser's warehouse in New
York city $200,000 Is appropriated for th«
construction of the building, and the limit
of the cost of the building, exclusive of
cost of site, is extended to $1,000,000, mak-
ing the cost total SI,650,000. For repairs
and preservation of public buildings
throughout the United States, $210,000. Un-
der the head of light and fog signals, the
following appropriations are made: Gray's
Harbor light station, Washington, $45,900;
Mobile, Ala., ship channel light, $30,000. For
enforcement of the alien contract labor
laws, $100,000 is provided, and for the en-
forcement of the Chinese exclusion act
THE POOLING BILL.
Washington, Jan. 15.—The senate inter-
state commerce committee again to-day
failed to reach a conclusion on the pool-
ing bill and it went over uptil the meeting
to be held next Tuesday, with an under-
standing that a strong effort will be made
to secure final action by the committee at
that time. Some opposition had developed,
in the committee to the bill as it came
from the house and amendments were sug-
gested and Informally discussed.
The chairman requested that all these
be put In shape by the next meeting.
W. R. Morrison, chairman of the inter-
state commerce commission, appeared be-
fore the committee and submitted fin
amendment on the line of a suggestion
made by him last week, giving the com-
mission supervision of pooling contracts
prior to the time when they take effect,
and he made a brief address showing the
necessity, from his point of view, of giving
the commission this privilege.
ELIZABETH TO WN POST .A 1A ST E RSI 11 P.
Washington, Jan. 15.—Franklin W. Jop-
lin was appointed postmaster to-day at
Elizabethtown, Ky., vice Mrs. Benjamin
Helm. The circumstances surrounding the
case 'make it one of unusual interest.
General Ben Harding Helm, the hus-
band of Mrs. Helm, was one of the most
gallant soldiers in the confederate army.
He was the commander of the famous Or-
phans' brigade and was killed at the bat-
tle of Ohlckamauga. Mrs. Helm, the post-
mistress who was removed to-day, was a
younger sister of Mrs. Abraham Lincoln,
who was a Todd. Colonel Robert Lincoln
was her nephew, and when he was ap-
pointed secretary of war toy President
Garfield he secured his aunt's appoint-
ment as postmistress of Elizabeth town.
That position she 'has (held tnrough three
administrations, Arthur's, Cleveland's and
Harrison's, although an effort was made
to have Mrs. Helm removed during Cleve-
land's first term, but was not urgently
pressed and was unsuccessful.
LITTLE'S MAIDEN SPEECH.
Washington, Jan. 15.—(Special.)—Oongrests-
man Little of Arkansas, who succeeded
Clifton Breckinridge in the house, made
his first speech to-day on the Indian ap-
propriation bill. In his remarks he called
the names of people in the Creek and other
tribes of the territory who have from 500
t > 100,000 acres of land under fence and
who he said came here to Washington
end went before congress with tears in
their eyes asking that the present condi-
tions in the 'Indian territory 'be not dis-
When he was asked what he thought
about the removal of the Fort Smith and
Paris courts into the territory, or rather
as to putting all courts having jurisdiction
of Indian affairs into the Indian territory,
he said th'at when it was best for the In-
dians that this should be done he was in
favor 'of it. He made quite a strong im-
pression before the house.
THE JONES BILL.
Washington, Jan. 15.—The Jones bill was
the subject of discussion by the senate
committee on finance to-day, notwith-
standing it has net yet been introduced in
the senate, or the preparation of it even
completed. It is understood that the re-
publican members of the committee mani-
fested a somewhat stronger interest in
the question of the reorganization of the
finances, and this interest was displayed,
among others, by Senator Sherman, who
made certain suggestions for the improve-
ment of the 'bill, 'bearing especially upon
the portion providing for a bond issue
and looking to the maintenance of the
parity of the government's various kinds
of currency. The democratic members
were encouraged to a considerable extent
by the Interest displayed by their polit-
Washington, Jan. 15.—The minister of the
United States in the Argentine republic,
William I. Buchanan, reports under date
of January 10 that the new tariff bill has
passed through the Argentine congress.
Owing to the friendly spirit of the Argen-
tine1 minister of foreign affairs and the
tariff commission considerable reduction in
favor of produc ts of the Unitr»'i State* hn«
been made In the new tariff. The principal
of these is yell'ow or pitch nine lumber,
on which wbout $250,000 in duty each year
has been removed, enough, it is said, to
secure us a greatly increased demand.
Washington, Jan. 15.—(Special.)—Attorney
General Olney recommends to the house

ernment rents the prison for $1500 a year
and it is offered to the government for the
sum of $5600. Olney advises that the offer

Washington, Jan. 15.—In the senate to-
day Mr. Voorliees of the finance commit-
tee favorably reported the bill for coinage
at the branch mint at Denver, Col.
Mr. Manderson securcd the passage of
two resolutions calling on the secretary of
the treasury for information on the tariff.
One resolution calls on the secretary for
full information as to the amount of sugar
imported during the sixty days prior to
August 23, the names of importers,
amounts of imports, the country whence it
A house bill was passed authorizing the
Little Rock ami Pacific railroad company
to construct bridges across the Fouche-la-
Fevre and Petit Jean rivers in Arkansas.
A senate bill was passed to approve the
construction of a bridge across the Bed
river between the states of Arkansas and
Texas at a point above the town of Fulton,
The debate was then resumed on the In-
come tax item in the urgency deficiency
bill, and Mr. MeCall of Florida addressed
the senate in favor of the appropriation.
Mr. Quay read a statement from the
books of the Lehigh Valley railroad com-
pany, showing that the income tax would
fall mainly on the stockholders having
small amounts. It gave the total number
of stockholders at 9000, while over 70 per
cent of the number had interests below
$1000. Mr. Quay said the showing of this
company was undoubtedly the same as
that of other corporations.
Mr. Allen (P) of Nebraska spoke of the
fact that the senator from Maryland (Gor-
man) and the senator from Iowa (Allison)
were now announcing to tne country i heir
readiness to get together on a plan for
racing revenue, although the parties of
the two leaders had been irreconcilably
separated on the revenue question for
twenty-five years. He said a considerable
element on the demoeratie side of the sen-
ate were as essentially protectionists as
the senators on the other side. It was
merely a difference in the degree in their
position. This common feeling was the
reason the senate had witnessed the re-
markable spectacle yesterday of democrats
and republicans "falling on each other's
necks and indulging in a love feast."
Mr. Allen yielded for toe submission of
a message from the president concerning
the arrest of two Japanese students by
China while they were under the protec-
tion of the United States.
Resuming, Mr. Allen urged that the old
parties had served their periods of useful-
ness and the people's puri>, renresentiug
the masses, was the party of t' e future.
It had east a million vot"s in 1893 and two
million In 1891. showing the phenomenal
growth of 100 per cent. It had no "va-
garies." as senators had asserted, unless it
was the subtreasury scheme, and this was
not believed in by the general majority of
Mr. Allen read the populist platform
adopted at Omaha and, iii commenting on
it, stated that the populists b'lieved in the
election of United 'States senators by the
"That doctrine," interrupted Mr. George
of Mississippi, "was amb idled In a resolu-
tion by a democratic house of representa-
tives before the populist party was thought
of. It will be found that whatever is good
In the populist platform was taken from
"Another poou.Ist accession from the
democratic ranks," said Mr. Allen.
"No; not an accession," declared Mr.
George. "The populists are fallowing the
democrats; not democrats following the
populists. Give me your national platform
and I'll point out the planks taken from
the democratic platforms."
Mr. George took the platform and await-
ed an opportunity to comment up.»n lit.
A sharp controversy arose when Mr.
George secured recognition to point <mt that
the platform submitted by Mr. Allen was
not an authorized platform of the populist
party. That it was "made up out of the
senator's head, and that It omitted the
subtreasury scheme and government owner-
ship of railroads."
Mr. Allen, however, insisted that he had
not claimed the paper submitted as the
Mr. George commented sharply on the
action of a senator .in giving the authority
of his name to a platform purporting :o
embody populistic doctrine and yet care-
fully and designedly omitting government
ownership of railroads and other doctrines
adopted by the populist national conven-
tion, There was a spirit. 1 exchange be-
tween the senators, as Mr. George insist-
ed on holding un the senator to fact
that he had undertaken to Issue his own
populist platform, and as Mr. Allen charged
Mr. George with "hedging and dodging"
the galleries and the lew senators present
listened with evident amu ment.
Continuing his speech Mr. Allen defended
the populist party against the charge of
■socialism and anarchy.
Mr. Cockrell gave notice that he would
!nal»t on the final disposition of the de-
ficiency bill to-morrow.
The senate then held a brief executive
session and at 4.45 adjourned.
PRICE OF BREAD.
Effort to Be Made to Break Up Bread
Trusts in Chicago.
Chicago, 111., Jan. 15.—Having been in-
formed by Its law department that It has
not the power to directly regulate the
price of bread, the city council now pro-
poses to regulate that price by removing
artificial restrictions of the form of
"trusts" or "combinations" among bakers.
In doing so it acts on the advice of the
law department, the corporate counsel
having reported that it is not only within
the power, but the duty, to collect evi-
dence, if any exists, of a combination of
bakers under which t hi* price of bread is
kept above a reasonable figure, and to take
steps to secure a dissolution of such trusts
by the proper tribunal. In fact, the order
directing the mayor, the corporate counsel
and the chief of police to make this inves-
tigation, which was passed by the city
council last night, was framed and Intro-
duced by the corporate counsel, who at
the time declared that everything possible
would be done in that direction should the
order be passed.

NO HELP FOR HIM.
Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 15.—A month ago
Gertrude Sehllosinger was a belle of Har-
lem, a suburb of this city. She was pret-
ty, stylish, with bright prospects and had
many admirers. She was heiress to Fred
Schliesinger, a prosperous German, who
has no small influence In the village. Ger-
trude, however, cared not for boys. By
and by James Marshal of Kansas City
came to Harlem. A few days after his
appearance G"rtrude disappeared and Mar-
shal was also missing, and the next day
Marshal sent word from Kansas City to
Fritz that he and Ortrude hud been mar-
ried and desired forgiveness. Fritz, how-
ever, boiling over with anger, came to
Kansas City and found the couple, drove
Marshal away and triumphantly carried
Gertie horn" with him. This morning Mar-
shal carried hiss tale of woe to police head-
quarters, but as he is for conciliating
Fritz first and getting possession of bin
bride afterward, no relief could be afford-
Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 15.—A special to a
local paper from Jefferson City says the
state capital is agitated by the discovery
that it will have to fight an organized lob-
by sent here in the interest of the joint
and concurrent resolution to'TOTfTOVe tWS
capital. The bills have already been intro-
duced in both branches of the legislature
for a change of location and it Is said
that Sedalia, which has been fighting for
two years to secure a vote of the people
on such a proposition, is again behind the
present deal. On as good authority as
Speaker liussel of the hnusn of representa-
tives. it is said that a syndicate of ..ica-
go capitalists had taken an option on a
thousand acres of land In Sedalla and
would at once send a strong lobby here
to insist upon the passage of the joint and
concurrent resolution to remove the capi-
tal. If ever the question of removal is
submitted the Pettis county city is su-
premely confident that it will win.
