New York, Sept. 23. A committee or
tlio Chamber o Commerce has made lu Uie
last six weeks a careful canvass of Sena
tors and Representatives, witli "results
gratifying to tlie friends of sound money.
Tlie sound money committee of the
Cliamber of Commerce lias more than
seventy members, all-business, men of New
York. Tlie executive committee, which
lias beiii in charge of the poll- is composed of
nine members, Gustav H. Schwab, chair

Joseph C. Hendrix, Charles 8. Fairchlld.
'William J. Sclileffelin, Louis Wlndmuller

SOUND MONEY IN THE SENATE.
The poll of the Senate shows forty
three votes against free coinage. In ad
dition totliis, there are six Senators
Bacon, Baker, Cattery, Mcllride, Martin
and Wilson whose position is somewhat
In doubt, but who are betocd to be
not unfavorable to sound money. The
slher men can muster only thirty-nine
votes, but tills number will doubtless be
Increased by two when Utah comes into
According to the report of the Chamber
of Commerce committee there will be
thirty-nine free silver men in the Senate.
Utah, of course, may add two, but against
theso there -will probably be lapses from
the ranks. Ecnalor Mills, of Texas, -who
was supposed to be the Achilles of the sll
verites, has come out on the sound money
side, and other desertions are expected.
Hero is a list of tlie free siher Senators:
Allen, Hate, Berry, Blackburn, Blanthard,
Butler, Call, Cameron, Carter, Chilton,
Clark, Cockrcll, Daniel, Dubois, George,
Hansbrough, Harris, Irby, Jones (Ark.),
Jones (Nev.), Kyle, Mantle, Mitchell (Ore.),
Eoach, Shoup, Stewart, Teller, Tillman,
Turple, Vest, Voorhecs, Walthall, War

SILVER'S WEAKNESS IN THE HOUSE.
In the new House only clghtj-clght
free sliver men have been found. Some
of these are Bald to be changing their
views. More than 200 members are known
to be against free coinage, and the remain
ing sixty, while they have not declared
themselves positively, are thought to be
In sympathy with sound money. Even If
these sixty members -voted with the free
silver men the latter would still lack many
votes of the number necessary to put a
free silver bill through the House.
The information secured by the sound
money committee has been verified In
several different ways. The position of
not a few Congressmen has been disclsed
by their votes in previous Congresses, by
their public declarations, by reference to
lists compiled by responsible parties, by
personal correspondence, and also by direct
communication with reliable people In the
Members of the committee claim that
their estimate Is very conservative. Tho
eighty-eight free slher men are made up
of fifty-one Democrats, thirty Republicans
and seven Populists, showing that the white
metal enthusiasts are weaker to-day than
tbey have been for many years, so far as
the complexion of Congress Is concerned.
KcporU indicate that a number of the
eighty and eight will not answer to the roll
call should a vote be taken on free coinage.
A member of tlie Chamber of Commerce
committee gives In detail the situation in
the several States as follows:
' 'The twenty-seven Congressmen from the
New England Stales are solid for sound
money, so far as reported. SnIIoway, of
New Hampshire, is credited -with free silver
tendencies, but it, is asserted that he would
vote for sound money if a clear Issue were
made on that question.
"In the Middle States there is a solid
delegation for sound money, although It

One of the subjects which will be con
sidered nt the next session of Congress Is
the proposition to issue naval commissions
to graduates of technological schools and
It is proposed to lest the efficiency of the
JJaval Academy by pemiittlns(undercerta in
resttjetions, to be determined by the Secre
tary of IheNavyKhe graduates of scientific
colleges of established reputation to be
appointed as cade't engineers.
After being sent to sea, for a year and
then to a nual engineering postgraduate
school, they will compete with the academy
serving as cadets they will receive about
$1,000 per year as compensation for their
These Chilian graduates must complete a
full four y ears' course of Instruction at their
respective institutions; therefore, this meas
ure can in no manner interfere with any
cadet who shall enter previous to 1807.
For some time the scientific eollegvj
have realized that It Is expensive work to
carry on such instruction. It is believed
that such an opening for their graduates
will materially aid their work. Those
who do not intend to remain permanently
In the service will strhe for sin.li appoint'
ments, as two years of travel and discip
line under military specialists will detclop
and strengthen the students and seekers
It is not believed that this plan will en
counter opposition from the friends of tlie
academy. That institution has not been
able to supply a sufficient number of cadets
to fill existing vacancies in the engineer
corps, and, therefore, It Is apparent that
some appointees to the corps must come
from other institutions.
Such a measure, it is thought, will be
the salvation of many colleges of mechanic
arts, and the scientific men who have the
matter in charge have perfected arrange
ments for bringing the subject before tlie
coming Congress. It Is said that its civil
service provisions will commend it to
friends of the Navy In the Senate and
House of Representatives, and, as the
great Influences of the land grant colleges
of the different States will be exerted
to make it a law, there is some prospector
a great naval engineering resirve being
provided for the country In time of war
by means of this plan.
It is stated at the Navy Department that
the detai Is o f th is important educational bill
will be given u the country within a few
weeks. Young men who desire to secure
commissions in the Navy, but who are de
barred by reason of having their Congres

What the "Weather Alen Himo to
Say About It.
The cold wave Is stealing steadily upnn
us from the West, and while overcoats
may not be a necessity to-morrow, there
will be a decided relief, as the Weather Bu
reau predicts a moderate change in the
temperature by to mnrrow morning, when
the thermometer will probably take a drop
from ten tu twenty degrees.
Yesterday was the hottest day of the
year; the next in intensity was June 3.
Tlie thermometer on yesterday reached its
highest point between 2 and 4 p. m.,
when a temperature of 98 degrees was
recorded. To-djy at noon the temperature
marked a fall of four degrees from that of
Many of the Western States, especially
tuoe In the Rix.ky Mountain region, are
to-day experiencing snow storms and kill
lug frosts. Chicago has the greatest drop
lu temperature of any plate in the coun
try, 40 degrees being the recorded fall
there on yesterday.
The cool -wave has extended East over
the upper lake regions and lower Ohio
valley southward to Texas, attended by
a fall of 20 to 40 degrees In ttmperaturc.
HOT PLATES FOK BREAKFAST.
"The indications are." said MaJ. Dun
woody, the local forecaster to a Times
reporter to-day, "that cooler 'weather
will prevail from ineMlddleAtlanticStatcs
southwestward over the Gulf Slates, Ten
nessee and the Ohio valley, with generally
fair weather, but the fall In temperature
will be preceded by local thunder storms.
"This is the hottest September in the
history of Uie weather bureau, but you
may say to the readers of the Times that
the -worst is over, and before they read
their paper In Uie morning the back bone
of the heated term will be broken and
cooler weather will beuponua."
The approach of the cold wave was
first indicated by the reports received
from the extreme northwest Canadian
stations on Thursday, and its slow move
ment to the southward was due to an ex
tended area of high pressure which cov
ered the eastern half of the United States,
with Its center over the South Atlantic

This distribution of pressure gave per
sistent warm southerly winds until .the
area of high pressure covering the cold
wave gathered sufficient -force to over
come this resistance.
The cool wave was driven almost south
ward over the Rocky MountainStatcs dur
ing the 20th and 21st, attended by snows
and freezing weather in Colorado, the
Da kotos and Nebraska.
While there was some uncertainty as to
the rapidity ot the advance of this cold
wave to the eastward when It first ap
peared in the extreme Northwest, there
were strong probabilities on Saturday
that it would extend over the central valleys
last night, and such notice was duly given.
The rapid development of the depression
now central over.Lake Superior-will hasten
'the movement ot this cool wave to the east

GBOVEE ISSUES THE ORDER
All Offices Between 91 ,0OO and $2,500
Will Be Fined by Promotion From
the State Department Class But
Not Competitive Examinations t
Be Held for the Vacancies. j
The most Important step yet taken In
the erteulon of civil service was accom
plished to-day when the President issued
an order plaeing certain grades of the con
sular system under the elasslfied service.
The order is the culmination of a move
ment whleh has been agitated for soma
years. A number of bills having it for
their object have been Inlnnluced in Con
gress, and civil service reformers have
repeatedly urged it liefore the President
and the State Department.
While the order is nut as far reaching
and general as most of the measures pro
posed, it is believed that it Is nly tho
first step toward including practically
the entire system under the nvll service.
The order places all consulate with
compensation between $1.0t0and $2,500
under a modified civil service, which pn
vldes for class but not competlthe exami- -nation.
