SENATOR TELLER WOULD
NOT REVOLVER ISSUE
WASHINGTON', December 22. In
ferring to tho publication of the letter
written by him on tho financial ques
tion to Sir Moroton Frcwen, Senator
Teller said today that ho had no inten
tion of reviving tho silver question, but
his only purpose has been to call at
tention to the present exchange of con
ditions between Amorica and Europe en
ono sido and India on the other.
"The question of exchange," ho uid,
"is one of worldwido importance and
there has como to bo such a Uivorgcnci
between prjees in gold-using and silvrr
using countries that tho situation is
growing somewhat acute. It is so muvh
in evidence that anyone who gives the
least attention to financial questions
must observe it. Hence I mak'i no
apology for my reference to it in a (H-r-wnal
letter to Mr. Frcwen."

of what is going on, ns the president
would refuse to beliovo tho dispatc'ues.
I cannot ask the president's opinion on
theso things because he is on a sick

received a dispatch since Sunday and
am certain there has beeu no exchange
of cipher dispatches, because tho presi

Tlho samo personage ridiculed the idea
of Castro's complicity in the plot to

of the new ministry, he said, "It ap

occurred in the Venezuelan cabinet.
This nows may bo authoritative. I

of the trans-shipment decree, if that is

the class drill of'beginners in reading
was continued by Mrs. Wood. After

members of tho institute, Dr. Babcock
presented the subject, "Teaching of
English," in a forceful manner. Ho
showed that we are teaching English
from tho first reading lesson of the
six-year-old, on through high school and
the university. His chief argument was
that tho teachers must lead the boy to
express his own thought, trusting to
the enlargement of thought nnd broad
ening of interests to lead to better
results in English.
General discussion followed tho talk
until adjournment for luncheon. A
pleasant feature of the forenoon pro

very interesting drawing lesson by a
