Mr. Stewurt finished his speech

declared that there could be no moro
unfortunate occasion for the exercise
of arbitrary power thau tli present,
Mr. Dubois declared in the course of a

Mr. Itutler then took thu floor anil

Vhcison, for the senate couimiUo. i on

the secretary of the treasury fallowing
that the estimated receipts of the
public revenues a submitted to

not including the postal service, and
estimated expenditures, n'&o including
the poital M.'1-vico, to be !307,OM,Out,
showing an estimated excess of re
ceipts of S3 2, 000, OOd for the year. The
estimate show nvernge monthly re
ceipts of W.l.T.IO.ooo nnd average ex
penditure of S3!, 000,000. The actual
receipts so far during tho year do not
reach the estimate by over 87.000,000
per month. This maues u deficit for
the llrst fiscal quarter of 821, '-Ml, 000.
as compared with the corresponding
qunrter of last year. Should the
actual receipts cont nuts for the year
as for the llrst qunrter, they would
fall below the estimate, to the" amount
Tho actual expenditures for tho
llrst quarter have amounted to S3.1,
810,700 per month, or tl.7.1 1,37.1 in ex
cess of the estimate, and would, sup
) sing these rcceiptsand expenditures
continue us for the first months, show
an excess of expenditures over actual
tecelpis of 870,118,83. The receipts
of the treasury for the six months,
preceding the commencement of the
present liscal year, were an average
ratoof S3l,47H,7'JI, and if the condi
tions then existing had continued :i
deficit would have been itverted, or nt
most would have been cry s nail,
since the receipts would have been In
creased for the year by $00,230.0.0
over the present indications.
He attributes tho falling off to finan

Inspection of the figures will show the

"that should the present conditions
continue for any considerable length
of time, deficiencies are likolv to occur
I which should either be averted or met
by ap, ropriato legislation With tho
small working balance in the treasury,
should there be no increase in receipts

from 3 o'clock until 4:30.
Senators Camden, Harris and .Jones,
of Aikansas, subsequently held n long
consultation u ith Mr. Cockroll. So
far as could bj asceitaincd nothing
definite had been accomplished.
The belief exists in the mind of tho
caucus committee that the administra
tion will concede a repeal, to take
effect at si Inline date, and that was
one of Iho contentions discussed for
some time. The repeal men want the
time llxed for .1 unitary or, at tho latest,
July I. Isti.1, while tho m ire conserva
tive silver m.'it want it to extend to
January I, 1 still, as llxed in Mr. Quay's
The cxtiemisls Insist that repeal
shall not lake effect until after tho
close of this :idmiuUtr:i)n, the
amount of silver purchases being re
duced in the meantime to 2,000,000
A representative Southern senator
said that if they could got nothing
better they would accept July 1, IS'JI.
The statement had been made, ho
said, that the administration would
favor silver legislation If this bill had
been rope tied and Democratic tepcal
crs had expressed their intention to
assist In enacting such legislation.
Willi the acceptance of a compro

oT Drooklyu yesterday gnve It out
tint ho would not permit thu , rlzo
ught between JimCorbett and Charley
.Mitchell to take place ut Coney Island.
District Attorney Uidgewny Is also
roporte 1 to have said the olfcring of

club was more or le,s u bluff to II n
out how the people of Drooklyu and
Kings cointv would stand It, and
that tho tolerance of u prl.o light,
that Is, an iuternation il prizefight,
would never be considered
The sporting men of New York
don't actually laugh out loud ut these
"campaign documents," but some of
them do say that the bluff Is on tho
part of the politicians. Some go far
onough to udd that, us soon as the

a day ago, that Is. it will go on If
Johnny MeKane. the boss of (irave--M-iid,
says It may. Others Insist that
inventor Flower, who stopped hexing
in liutfalo, must, to be consistent, make
these sluggers go elsewhete than in
this statu to slug.
Sheriff Courtney, when asked if it
was true that the fight would not
Hike place, said: "No; there will bo

perfectly true, and the 11,'ht can not

Mitchell, who Is now In this city, was
very angry when informed tint Mayor
Doody ol Drooklyu had decided that
the fight between Corbutt and himself
could not take place at Coney Island.
It was the Hist definite intimation
that the hnglish pugilist had received
of the intended interference by the
Itrooltlyn authorities, and at once
launched out into a bitter denuueia
i ion of the New York ministers, who
he claimed were responsible for Mayor
Doody's action. He said thoy did not
know the diiferenco between n pri.o
light and n boxing match, and they
would do w-i 11 to attend to their own
business. No attempt was made to
stop small fights, ho added, but an in
ternational affair gave the preachers
an opportunity to gjt a little cheap
Mitche'll then declared that the fight
would have to coino off. Tho money
was up, nnd if ho could not fight lit
this country he would insist upon
settling the matter In Mexico or Cuba,
under London pri.e-rlng rules on the
turf, for the original stakes.

has been so ilemoustrat ul, that as
Dngl slimeii vio'w the Argentine and

disposed to u wait with impatience an
opportunity to come back lo us with

strike when our national finances aro

of the panic of HOI Is an old one. It
is simply that "honesty Is the best
Horace White of New York gave a
history of money from the c trly ages
to tho present day, tind continuing
Dttt the point I wish to illustrate is
that the check on a bank or private
individual's acceptance, or a certifi
cate of deposit in u n insurance com
pany, or any kind of shin plaster, will
perform nil the functions of a bank
nolo if the public have tho same con

A perfectly elastic currency would
bo one which should rise and fall in
vnltimo uui pastt with the quantity of
sugar, flour find cloth and other com
modities s.okinsr to bo exchanged for
the other. It is easy to sco that the
cheek system is automatic and elastic
and that It accommodates itself to the
volume of business at one time us well
as another. It Is not quite so easy to
seo that the bank note syhtem may bo
made automatic and elastic In tho
sumo way. Now our problem is to de
vise a system where tho bank noto
shall be eliutie a tho chock and In
like manner make bartor a solcuco.
Most o' the misfortunes that have
overtaken banks In this country have
resulted from loans to speculators,
such n udvan es to railway builders,
to real estate owners and the like.
The requisites of an elastic currency
nro, tlrt, that there must hi no limit
set upon it except tho demands for In
struments with which to exchange
the coiuum ib!e products and materi
als moving through the country Mich
as have been Imported from foreign
countries Second, it must lie issuable
at once as the demand for it arrises,
without waiting for somebody else to
do something eUo and without expend
ing more money In preparing for it
than Is fa'rly obtained.
