Special to the Record-Union.
WAsHnrGTOK, June 11.—The meeting
Of tho Free Coinage Silver Committee,
wiiich was to have been held in Wash
ington in a few days, will be held at tho
Hodman House in New York instead.
They will meet at 10 o'clock on tho morn
ing ofthe 18th, and will take up the work
for the promotion of free coinage where
th< y left off at their last meeting.
Tho action of the Democratic Conven
tion in proposing to compromise on tho
age of products of American mines,
which, it has been said, resulted from a
:alk with President Harrison when he
in Denver, has given the National
Silver Committee something to occupy
'.heir attention. Tliey regard the propo
sition for a compromise on American
product as ;in attack upon their line by
the "Gold Bugs," and think that their
Denver friends wero trapped.
Senator Stewart. Senator Jones. Gen
oral Warner and the rest of those who are
prominent in the coinage crusade do not
propose tfl have their lines weakened. It
b insisted that there will not be enough
life in the proposition when Congress
meets to warrant its even being men
loned. The silver men, they say, will j
bave nothing but the free coinage of j
diver in the fullest sense of the term,
md they claim to have votes enough to
.airy it through.
Senator Stewart said to-day that he was
onfident that a free coinage bill could be
passed through the next Congress over
.he President's veto. "Of course," he
add, "there can bo no doubt about a two
.hird vote for free; coinage in the House,
md in the Senate it has been shown that
hen- is a majority."
The question is, What will the Senate
lo in case of a veto? If all the Demo
rats in the Senate' will vote to pass the
nil over the President's veto, Mr. Stew
irt says there will bo no trouble about
ho matter. The report of the votes in
he Senate, that Mr. Stewart counts on as
jure for free coinage, are two from Cali
fornia, one from Oregon, two from Washi
ngton, two from Idaho, two from Mon
-dna, two from Nevada, two from Colo
-ado. one from Wyoming-, two from !
South Dakota, one from North Dakota, !
-v. o from Kansas, two from Nebraska, I
me from Pennsylvania. Culloni, Stock- I
-ridge und Davis he regards as doubtful, i
S counted as sure would give
"re . coinage sixty votes, if the Democrats
»oted solidly for free coinage, as policy
night induce them to do. Fifty-nine
rotes are not enough to carry the bill
>vor a voto. The only Senators on the
Democratic side whom Mr. Stewart re
gards as doubtful are Gray, McPherson
RICnARD L. TRUMnULL.
ilo Says He Was Indicted on a Bogus
Washington, June 11.— Richard L.
Trumbull, representative ofthe Chilean
Insurgent party, who arrived here
rday, will endeavor to secure recog
nition of the United States for the Insur
gent party. He says ho was indicted on
ho strength of a bogus interview with
iim printed in San Francisco, and that
ie w;is continually shadowed by a private
detective in San Francisco, and declared
hat even while he was talking a private
detective was waiting on tlie outside of
he Arlington Hotel. He declares stoutly
hat he had nothing whatever to do with
schooner Robert and Minnie and that
te has nothing to fear from the proceed
ngs instituted against him. He says
hat When his trial is held some new
(oiuts in international law will be
nrought out, for instance it is said to be
iniversally held by all authorities that
be sale Of small arms to a belligerent
force is merely a matter of commerce.
Mi. Trumbull thinks that money-could

a ould ship small arms to Chile tlie same
as tney would flour or any other kind vi'
merchandise. When Chile appealed
o the United Statea to prevent the ahip

thud no authority- to lake such action.

The condition of tho relations between
Hayti and San Domingo also excites in
terest in the State Department. The re
lations have never been satisfactory,
owing to the dispute over the boundary
line, and were made more unfriendly
than ever a year ago, when, as San Do
mingo holds, and as appears to bo tho
iact, Hippolyte arbitrarily denounced
the commercial treaty of 1874. That treaty
was to continue for twenty-five years. It
provided for the reciprocal free importa
tions of the products of the two countries,
and for a periodical adjustment of the
revenues arising from the interchange of
foreign commodities. No such adjust
ment has ever been made, and San Do
mingo claims a balance in her favor duo
from Hayti on that account to the amount
of $823,477 for the first eight years of the
treaty. San Domingo protested vigor
ously against the action of the Hippolyto
Government, but without avail. While a
resort to arms does not seem probable at
present, it certainly is among the possi
bilities of tho situation.

Berlin, June 11.—A Berlin Asso

conversation with Herr Goldberger, tho
well-known Jewish financier, who was
recently expelled from Russia. He went
from this city in the interest ofa banking

Herr Goldberger described the awful
scenes of expulsion which ho had wit
nessed at Moscow during his two days'
stay. Social standing and high position,
he said, were of no avail. None of the
accounts so fhr published tells the whole
story. The misery and persecution is
simply indescribable. Contrary to the
accepted version, Goldberger says the
Czar is well aware of the cruelties prac
ticed: that he has always been a radical
anti-Seminite, and that his hatred of the

railway accident which happened upon
the line built by the Jew Yon Polieskoff.
Goldberger thinks that Russia will not
only suffer from commercial disasters
sure to follow the expulsion of the Jews
—disasters which Russia, with her great
resources, might meet with impunity—
but that these measures have brought
ahout a feeling of insecurity among the
Russian Protestants and among tlie nu

whose enterprise most of the commercial
undertakings owe their existence. No

It speaks of tho recent lawless acts upon

of Chile, comprising, it is added, over

that it is growing in military power, and
that its naval supremacy is indisputable,
enabling it to maintain sovereignty over'
its territory and to threaten the provinces

view of these facts, the provisional Gov
