Xew Yor.K, Nov. !. There will be the
bipKest strike ever seen in this country
next spring, lieKinninK in Chicago or some
where else, before the World's fair, cover
ing dozens or scores of anions, ntul playing
the mischief with some things," according
to the predictions of a unionist leader with
Whom a reporter of the Xew York Sun
held communication. "The pipe-laying for
it has begun," he continued, "and if there
is no break in the lines it will be heard of
when the time comes. The miners and
the iron-worktrs and the building trades
and the railway switchers are not the only
men who are dissatisfied ".rith things now
days, as the bosses will find out, and as
they found out in Xew Orleans and other
places. We expect that plans will be set
tip by which the trade and labor organiza
tions will work together somehow, so that
Gomper'a American Federation of Labor
will not be fighting Towderly'a Knights of
Labor, and so that the outside bodies will
either be brought in or made to stay still. "
Gompers Not Commaniratlre.
.As the man who said thisdeclined to give
particulars the reporter sought information j
elsewhere. But neither Samuel Gompers,
the president of the American Federation
of Labor, nor Peter J. McGuire, its secre
tary, had anything to communicate about
pipe laying or about any big strike in pros
pect. Mr. Gompers is preparing the busi
ness for the twelfth annual convention of
the federation, which is to be held in Phila
delphia in December. One effort to be
made at this convention is to agree with
the K. of L. on a united pol-'cy, and bring
a long strife between the two bodies to a
Taking Advantage of Opportunity
The pipe-layers and agitators who are
looking forward to the bic strike have not
yet fixed udol any specific or direct object
to be gained by it, so far as the reporter
could ascertain; but it is probable that
some grievance of some union will first be
taken up, such, for example, as that of the
switchmen, and afterward other grievances
of other unions will be brought to the
front, under the stimulous of the excite
ment that is to be raised. It is said that
there is no malicious purpose to injure the
Chicago exhibition of the Columbian year,
but merely that the opportunity furnished
by that'exhibition will be seized to recover
the losses that have recently been incurred.
A Hint from l'owdey's Organ.
In a recent issue of Mr. i'owderly's organ
there was a hint of the impending tronble,
by which the nieniliers of his ordi;r were
given to understand that the first move
ment in the "monstrous strike of 1SU3" is to
be made by the Itailroad Switchmen's un
ion, with the object of crippling Chicago.
It is there reported that the secretary of
that union, Joseph Heimerle, has declared
that the switchmen's strikes of this year at
Iiuffalo and elsewhere were but preludes to
the great strike of next spring, which is to
be a gigantic uprising of labor all over the
country. "The plans for this uprising, the
secretary added, "have been made, and it
will be the greatest thing ever seen in the

The strike, it appears, is first to be de

of switchmen, J. E. Wilson, of La Crosse,
Wis., who was elected as Sweeney's suc

gramme, and indeed he got his office as
its advocate. Mr. Wilson is also an advo

can be brought about.
Union Men Say They Know Nothing.
Several of the union organizations de

About the projected strike to be engi
neered by the pipe-layers. When asked
bout the prospect of violence in the event
of ttie strike taking place they replied with
ene accord that Gompers, Powderly, Wil
son and the others would certainly do all
they could to prevent law-breaking and
preserve pence in the ranks, as American
wot kingmen do not believe in seeking their
ends by turbulence and are ready, to join
the militia in suppressing disorder.

Coney Island, Xov. 29. Costello and

on, with the exception of rattlers ndw and

Effect nf Disusing Vaccination.
London, Xov. 29. The gradual spread

Henrotin, of Chicago, Presents Ills
Views to the Conference Senator Teller
Not Happy But Certain of Free Coinage.
London, Nov. 29. At the international
monetary conference at Brussels yesterday
Alfred de Rochschild presented a proposal
for the international coinage of silver. The
proposal was that each government repre
sented in the conference shall be associated
iu the purchase of silver to the minimum
amount of 5,000,000 sterling, and shall
ike a fixed proportion of this amount at a
limit of 43 pence per ounce., the purchase
to be made directly by the trcnsnrii s oft!....
various countries or through the agency
of financial institutions. It is expected that
the Biitish delegates will support th:s
plan in the interest of the Indian currency.
The proposal was referred to a special coni-misi-ion
of fourteen delegates.
What a Dane Will Propose.
A Danish moometallist delegate has a
proposal which he will offer formally after
the Rothschild scheme has been delated.
His plan is the coinage of silver five franc,
four shilling, or dollar pieces, rated to gold
according to the price of silver in the year
previous to the adoption of an international
agreement, with a seignorage of 10 per
cent. He will also propose the appoint
ment of a permanent international com
mission to fix the initial prices. Should
the price of silver fall to 5 per cent, below
the coinage ratio the commission will have
authority to fix a new ratio and order the
recoinage of the pieces. These coins will
be legal tender internationally, banks to
keep them as a reserve against notes and to
have the right to demand gold in exchange
for them at any time from the government
issuing the particular coin held.
Complains or Senator Allison.
The Tost, discussing the currency ques
tion and the conference at Brussels, com
plains that Senator Allison is a representa
tive merely of the silver party of the United
States, and that therefore little can be
hoped for from the conference, as there
will be no chance to discuss any practical
arrangement to utilize silver as a subsidi
ary currency. The Vienna correspondent
of The Chronicle says: "The American pro
posals at the Brussels monetary conference,
being a repetition of the bimetallic pro
gramme rejected at the conferences of 18T8
and 1881, have caused disappointment hnre,
ss they fail to supply a basis for a further
discussion without raising false hopes in
the silver market."
Walsh Calls for Free Silver.
The latest champion of free silver is
Archbishop Walsh who, in an interview, de
ilared that the adoption of bimetallism
was a matter of imperative necessity to
save the Irish tenants from inevitable ruin.
If things go on as they are, even the excel
lent land purchase scheme may become be
fore many years are over a source of wide
spread disaster to purchasers under it. Ac
cording to Archbishop Walsh's views fox-. .
eign competition is not at all the sole cause '
of the ruinous fall in the prices of agricul
tural products. The main cause he be
lieves is the continuous rise in the value of
TELLER IS NOT SANGUINE.
No Coundence in the Monetary Conference
A Chicago Banker's Ideas.
Chicago, Nov. 29. Senator Teller, of Col
orado, arrived at the Grand Pacific yester
day and left for Washington an hour later.
The senator in speuking of the monetary
conference, said: "I do not expect it will
have any immediate effect upon the ques
tion of free silver. It may eventually lead
to something through repeated gatherings,
but for the present it will do nothing ex
cept, perhaps, awaken the public to the
importance of the subject. One thing I
am certain of is this: Rothschild's plan
will never solve the problem which every
country will have to face if the present
methods be persevered in.
Kothschild Plan No Good.
"This plan as I understand it is to have
the different governments represented in
the conference form themselves into an
association for the purchase of a minimum
amount of silver at 43 pence per ounce.
That will not settle the question. The only
remedy is free coinage, and there is no good
reason why free coinage should not be
brought into existence. Every thinking
man can see that the public sentiment is
changing with regard to the subject. One
day or other a free silver bill must be
Views of a Chicago Banker.
Charles Henrotin, the Chicago banker,
accepting an invitation made by the mone
tary conference now in session in Brussels,
forwarded today a communication on the
silver question to the president of the con
ference. Mr. Henrotin expressed his views
on the silver question to a reporter, as
follows: "Our present silver issue is
fettered by obvious imperfections and if it
is expected of it to fully perform its in
tended usefulness it should first be honest
ly made to represent what it purports to
call for, and above all, be surrounded by
reasonable and prudent safeguards.
Wants the Silver Redeemable in Gold.
"The policy I have always advanced is
this; The silver coin of the present weight
and fineness should be issued by the gov
ernment monthly in amounts to be deter
mined upon as thought most advisable, and
made redeemable iu important amounts at
intervals of from five to twenty-five years
from the date of the issue, and payable
dollar for dollar in United States gold coin
or in a gold dollar's worth of silver for
every dollar issued. The choice of the two
methods of redemption should be optional
with the government.
Protection Against Manipulation.
"The government could protect itself
against the manipulations of bullion deal
ers by provisions in the bill regulating the
mode of arriving at the redemption price of
the silver at the time of such redemption.
Such a currency could safely be put into
circulation to the extent of the fullest de
mands of commerce without danger to the
government of even being in any way in
convenienced in the future redemption of
the coin, should such redemption ever be
come necessary, or without risk of loss to it
in the more probable event of future ap
preciation in the value of silver bullion."
Providing for International Issues.
"How, in your opinion, should an inter
national issue of silver be provided for?"
' "By an international commission which
shall fix the minimum and twwii;"m
amounts of s.'.ver coiri to be issued fro.u
time (" i.iioe l. -' t he countries eiU-'ing u--
Union. Then the weight and fineness of
such coin should be fixed by the commis
sion. For convenience and economy in the
cost of transportation the silver certificates
can be issued against the actual deposit of
the silver coin in the national treasuries.
This silver or certificate should be made
legal tender for the payment of public or
private debts in the countries issuing the
