SILVER'S MUSE HMD

the Attitude of England.
GREAT BRITAIN, PONDERING
Cnphnlistle Interests to Meet and
Prepare a Rebuke ofthe Meas
ures Adopted by Uie Directors nf
the Banli Strong Signs of Bt
London, Sept. 21. A meeting tomorrow
of the representatives ot all the banks in
the clearing house to discuss the action
resulting from thf recent letter of Mr.
Hugh Smith, governor of the Bank of Eng
land, to Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, the chan
cellor of the exchequer, relating to the
holding it one-fifth of the bank's note re
serve in silver, will probably result in the
adoption of a rebuke and a sharp pro
test against the bank's action.
A member of tlie clearing houe cora
mltttee 6ays that definite proposals have
been formulated, as it is understood that
there is some difference of opinion among
the members. ,
Financial circles are becoming seriously
agitated as the full bearings of the ques
tlon are developed. The increased uneasi
ness is due more to the attitude or the
Government than to the action of the bank
Mr Alfred S. Haryey, manager of Glyn,
Mills, Currie, & Co , one ot the strongest
flnr.iic:alinstitutionsof London, said today
"It is the possible change in the attitude
of the government that ne most fear. Tim
letter ot the bank governor means noth
Ing. Wc had Just been informed by our
American agents that the silver agitation
was subsiding, when, apparentlj, the
British government contemplates giving
it a tilip. Tree coinage; in France would,
of course, mean the 'bankruptcy of the
Bank of France, but any arrangement by
Senator Wcicott with tiie French govern
ment would give the appearance of
feasibility to his propositions."
A dispatch from Bombay describes the
silvei market tnere as very excited. Sil
ver, it sajs, is in strong demand, owing
to the up-countiy ba7aars deducing from
the statement of Mi. Hugh Smith that the
Eunk of England will shortly be a bujer
and to the belief that a further import
duty is imminent, and that the mints may
possibly he reopened.r''The price has ac
cordingly risen since Tliur'day from 67 3-4
rupees per 100 tolas to 75 rupees.
The Standard points to this as an in
stance of the incalculable mischief clumsy
exhibitions of horror in business affairs
may do. It urges the bank representa
tives at their meeting tomorrow to formu
late a protest against the action of the
Bank ot England, but says it fears the
meeting may 'end in 'fallt, especially as
the boards o? dliectors of the binks lack
n. strong leader, and the clearing house
committee lias not a definite maudate to
represent thj banks.

limes reporter a clear exiiositluu of the
present political crisis in Spain.
"A great straggle is going on m internal
polities, said Mr. Taylor, "which in
volves an attempt on the part of Gen.
Azcarr.ngn, the present president ot the
council, to concentiate in the cabinet rep
resentatives of all the factions ot th Con
servative party. The largest section Is
led bv Senor Sllvela, who s:ood apart from
the late Premier Canovna because he bad
declared the party to have been corrupted
by Romero Kobledo, who we would call
the "Boss. Tweed' of Spain.
"it is not likely tb.it Silvela and Romero
RoLlcdo an be united. If this is true, the
present ministry must soon give way to
tlie Libemlsjmder the leadership ot Senor
Sagasta. What effect the latter will have
upon, Cuban affairs I do not know, as
Sagas'a has not manifested any stronger
disposition in favor of real Cuban autonomy
'T'ie Spanish people are not yet suf
ficiently educated to govern themselves
upon Republican principles. Senor Cas

republic ci. although he is a republican.
The country, however has strong demCK
cratic leanings and will eventually be. a
republican stronghold." t
