BEFOBH OF THE CURBEIGY
Problems of Legislation. Con
fronting Republican Party.
CHAIRMAN JONES' VIEWS
No Pleasure Embodying Secretary
Gng.'s Ideas Could Ftoh the Sei.
ate Any ILll Ilesiiltlnjr in In
creased TTse of Silver Coin AVouhl
Get tJ:e Democratic Nrote.
The possibility of legislation on the cur -rency
question is one of the problems now
confronting the Republican party, and for
which, up to tlie present time, they have
looked m vain Tor a solution. Pledged In
their platform to bimetallism, tho mission
of the commission which jaunted all ovtr
Europe has proven that that pledge can
not be ledeemed. Unhorsed in everything
it h."s lu'derluken, and with a tariff bid
that promised everything and gives noth
ing, the Republican leaders find them
selves appioachlng another session or Con
gress with tlie people still discontented and
little prospect or their being quieted
At this juncture currency legislation sug
gested itseir as a means through which tho
party in power might make another play
to the galleries and win burricient applause
to carry it through the next election. That
estimable adjunct of the Republican party,
the monetary commission, created by the
monetary convention of Indinnapolis, has
been in periodic sesnlon in this city Tor
the past two or three months, and has al
most agreed upon the form of a measure
which It hopes Congress will take up and
pass Just nh the Houj in the Fifty fourth
Congress parsed the Wilson Gorman tariff
bill without crossing a "t" or dotting an
"i." This wish, lo which utterance has
been frequently given in speech by various
members of this commission, fchows how
unfamiliar these gentlemen are with the
practical workings of the two houses of
It is altogether likely that the mens
ure this commission will report will
meet the appro val of the AdmlnUt ration
for It ib the emanation or the moneyed
interests ot the country, ir this be ad
mitted It will in all prolabilltv bj passed
by the House without material change,
for undpr existing conditions anything
approved by the Administration and in
dorsed by Speaker Reed can he lirted
tnrough the lower house by the aid tsl
that powerful political machine known as
the Committee on Rules.
In considering the probability of cur
rency legislation then, the House must
be eliminated. It cuts no figure whatever.
Its action is the will of the Speaker, and
Sir. Reed is known to be friendly to the
proposed scheme along this hue. In the
Senate there is room for some conjecture,
although, if Democrats who have recently
come to the city speak by tub card, there
ought to be little doubt about tlie ate of
any measure that is built along the lines
of Secretary Gagc'b recommendations, or
which contemplates a, retirement of the
greenbacks or an enlargement of the pow
ers of national hanks.
The recent bpeech or Vice President
Hobart has been accepted In some quarters
as an Intimation that he will attempt to
use his office during tlie next session In an
arbitrary fashion; that he will frown down
filibustering and hold the Senate in check
through his power as a presiding ofricer.
The statement that the Vice President con
trols the Senate and makes decisions is
but one ot the several rictions connected
with that body, which people not con
versant with the usages of that body be
lieve to be true.
The V'ce President merely expresses the
wish of the Senate, and wheneerhemecta
with a new question he Fiibnilts It to tLe
Senate Itseir for decision. It would take
just about long enough for a Senator to
make i motion to si ow the Vice President
how really inconsequential he is if ) e weie
to attempt to override the cust mis of that
ancient and honorable body. Only when
there is a tie tote is the Vice Pres'dcnt a
person of consequence, and that does not
often happen, bo that, as a matter of fact,
tae Vire President remains for the most
part a ligurchead without authority.
It currency legislation is to pass the
Senate, it will be by the votes of the
Seiiatois and not the will of It presiding
officer. Therein lies the great distinction
between the two houses of Congie.s. What
the voto or the Senate will be is n matter
over which there need not be any great
amount of invtery. Currency legislation
will oefavoted by the McKlnley Republicans
who form n respectable minority of the
Senate- it will be favored, in some form
or another, with probjtble modifications
of the House scheme, by the three "gold
Democrats" of the Senate. It will re
antagonized by the silver forces, both
Democrats and Republicans. No scheme
that will meet the appioval of the Ad
mlnlbtratlon can possibly be acceptable to
the sllvci men of the Senate, and thesj
are the men with whom the Administra
tion must deal in getting through its so

be the policy of the Democrats on this
"There has been no conference of Demo
cratic Senators, and I am not authorized
to speak for them," said the Senator,
"but I believe I express the sentiments
of the Democrats when I bay that if the
scheme of the Administration is such as
has been outlined by the Secretary or the
Treasury it can ever nabs the Senate.
The Democratic party is opposed to the
retirement of the greenback.
"We can find no good reason why a
Government security drawing no interest
should be withdrawn and another substi

shifting of burdens that can do no good.
Then, too, it would contract the currency,

still further diminished. Even Republicans

MAES TO BE ARCHBISHOP
Has Been Appointed to Fill the
Xew Orleans "Vacancy.
Selection n. Compromise to Smooth
Down the ..Fettling- Existing
New Orleans, Nov. Ii2 It was announced
ofricially today th t-iRishop Maes, of Cov
ington, Ry.. had begn appointed to the
vacant Catholic archbishopric of New
Orleans This ends a warn contest which
has been going on within the Catholic
Church ot the diocese for acme line.
A majority of tile Catholics in New
Orleans and Louisiana are French speak
ing or of Trench origin, and the archbishop
has always been appointed from among the
French clergj. When the position wa
last filled and the Irish, fiernian and other
Catholic elements asked a recogidfton of
that growing element in the yhurch, die
French and Creole&oljected, and to placate
all parties, a compromise kvas reached and
Janssens, a native ot Holland, wis ap
pointed. At his dealh some', months ago, the old
question can-e up agalu. The priests of
the diocese selected Bishop Chapelle, a
Frenchman, as the most worthy to fill the
place and tl e bishops urged the appoint
nient of Bishop Keane, Herelenor Chapelle.
A number of French priests even sent a
petition to Tresldent Faure, ot France
with the request that he use his influence
at Rome to secure a French archbishop, so
as to assure the continuance or French
influence and language in Louisiana
The petition was frirwarded by President
Faure to the pope. ' These facts having
crept out, Bi8hop'Fitzgerald, the presiding
bishop ot the diocese spoke In very tc
vere terms of the signers of the petition
as traitors to their adopted country and
to the American flag in seeking foreign
aid in tht matfei ot selecting an Ameri
can archbishop, j
The FrencL 'priests, jespeclallv Father
Rongc, have taken Bishop Fitzgerald ti
task and recalled thetfact that he voted
"no" on the iiilalllofltt of the pope.
The selection ot Bishop Maes, who is a
Belgian Fleming, is understood to have
been madt In the spirit of compromise to
nnooth down the feeling existing be
tween the French, Iribh and American
Catholics of the diocese.

of Insuiance McN'all won a victory today
In the Federal court, when Judge Foster
