MORE CURRENCY MUDDLE.
Another crisis has arrived in the
currency matter. At the regular
meeting of the Chamber of Com
merce yesterday the resolution of
Nov. 29th, by which members
agreed to receive and pay out certi
ficates of deposit for all amounts
over ten dollars as gold, was brought
up for reconsideration. Action was
about to be taken, when one of the
members advised that the Chamber
should first procure authoritative
information, instead of hearsay
evidence, of the state of affairs at
the Treasury. This counsel prevail
ed, and the Chamber adjourned
until the afternoon to permit a com
mittee to visit the Treasury and as
certain what gold was in deposit to
redeem certificates. Before the
Chamber reassembled the Treasury
refused, in some cases, to redeem
its certificates of deposit. This being
made known to the Chamber in the
afternoon, it adopted a resolution and
sent a copy thereof to the Govern
ment. The tenor of this resolution
has not transpired and an answer to
it is at this writing awaited.
This is all that can be ascertained
at present, but the full facts will pro
bably be available to the press to
morrow. We are authorized, how
ever, to say that the statement in
to-day's Advertiser, that, "Yester
day Messrs. Bishop & Co. and Mes
srs. C. Brewer & Co. gave notice to
the Chamber of Commerce that they
withdrew from the arrangement made
some time ago to accept silver certi
ficates as the equivalent of gold," is
untrue. On the contrary, a second
notification was necessary to bring a
representative of Messrs. Brewer &
Co. to the meeting at all, and when
there he conenrred in the counsel that
procured a postponement of action.
That firm had actually decided to
hold aloof in the matter, being bur
dened with neither silver nor certificates.
venting nny of them that mo sick
from landing. Also, it asserts thai,
of tho money so collected, nearly nil
goes to the maintenance of useless
dlllcials mid only a very small pio
portion to the relief of indigent im
migrants. Wo wonder how many
of the people coming to these
Islands ever burden the hospital
funds raised by the exaction of two
dollars of head money from them.
The assistance being given by
Italy to England in the Soudan is
explained by the news that England
and Italy have signed a treaty pro
viding Unit Italy shall occupy
Egyptian territory from Massowah
to Obok, a distance of 300 miles.
England also agrees to support
Italy's occupation of Tripoli, should
the question arise, and will favor the
creation of an Italian colony in West
Africa. That shows that England
is not wholly ostracized by Europe,
as enemies of the English Govern
ment at home and abroad have tried
to make nppcar.
Great men who ure giYcn to be
impertinent to newspapermen should
take warning by tho fate of the Aus
trian legislators. On January 30th
a Deputy asknd the President of the
Reichsrath to expel from the Cham
ber all the newspaper people who, he
said, were lounging about the cor
ridors writing lies about the proceed
ings. Thereupon the journalists
struck work in tue Chamber and
signed an address to the President
demanding nn apology. The next
day all the Vienna papers came out
without a word about the legislative
proceedings. Even letters from in
dignant Deputies were refused inser
tion except at advertising rates.

tho Treaty might never have been
realized but for his journeys.
A mi:i:tino of the Board of Trus
tees of the Sallois' Home was held
this morning. Hon. S. N. Casllo
sent in his resignation as President
on account of ill-health. Very ap
preciative remarks were made by
several trustees, on the long and
faithful services of this gentleman
rendered to the Home, and an un
animous vole of thanks to him was
passed. The following ofllccrs were
then elected by ballot: President,
Hon. C. K. Bishop ; Treasurer, Mr.
John II. Paty ; Secretary, Mr. P. A.
Schacfcr ; Executive Committee,
Messrs. S. M. Damon, J. B. Athcr
ton and Rev. E. C. Oggel. The
President then referred in appro
priate and feeling terms to the death
of the late Dr. Damon, which loss
would be felt by the Sailors' Home
Society. Resolutions were unani
mously adopted and will be forward
ed to the afllictcd family. Mr. Ed.
Dunscombe sent in Ills resignation
as custodian and purveyor of the
Home. It was resolved to defer
that matter to an early meeting of
the Board of Trustees.
Here is something relevant to the
question of a debating society. It
is from the Montreal Week :
One of the correctives for the de
sultory reading of our times consists
in the direction given by literary
and debating clubs. Perhaps no
thing better of the kind exists in
Canada than a club established in
Montreal eight years ago. Its mem
bership is but twenty-live, so that
each member in turn can entertain
the club at his house. The meetings
arc fortnightly, except during the
summer months. Men of letters, of
science and of business, with teach
ers, lawyers, doctors and clergymen
make up this delightful club. A
paper is contributed once a year by
each member, according to a calen
dar arranged at the beginning of a
session. This paper is discussed,
and the variety in the membership
affords diversity,of topic and com
ment which grows in interest from
year to year. Clubs such as this
would be a most desirable means of
culture throughout our country, not
only in giving reading, and thought
an aim and purpose, but in cultivat
ing the amenities between men of
diverse standpoints in political and
