A Proposed Compromise of the

A Sort of Snap" Conference to Which
Carlisle and His Supposed Gnests Were
All Invited by an Outsider, Name of
Kenney Mint Director Leech Gives
Some Silver and Gold Statistics Thurs
ton the Annexer Replies to Kaiulani.
Washington, Feb. 21. "Secretary-elect''
Carlisle was in the city Sunday ami had
a conference with the Democratic con
gressmen with a view to agreeing on some
sort of bill to repeal the silver act. The
idea was to formulate a substitute for the
Andrew -Cate bill and the result is as fol
lows: That the eecretary of the treasury
shall set apartso much of the silver bull
ion at the coinage value thereof, purchased
under the act entitled an "act directing the
purchase of silver bullion and the issue of
treasury notes thereon and for other pnr
posesapproved July 14, ISOO.as may le neces
sary, including the silver dollars hereto
fore coined tinder said act, to redeem all
the outstanding United States treasury
notes issued in payment for silver bullion
so purchased, and shall retain the same in
the treasury to be used for that purpose
Must Coin S.I.OOO.OOO a Month.
And he shall cause the residue of t he sil
ver bullion purchased under the aforesaid
act to lie coined at the rate of tt,000,fi;i0 per
month into silver dollars of the weight, of
4 12 - grains troy of standard silver as pro
vided in the act of Jan. IS. ISM. on which
shall lie the devices and superscriptions
l.rovided by snid net, which coins, together
with all silver dollars hereafter coined un
der the provisions of said act of July 14,
1890, shall le a legal tender, at their nomi
nal value, for all debts and dues, public
and private, except when otherwise ex
pressly stipulated in the contract. The
standard silver dollar coined under this
section shall be covered into the treasury
as a miscellaneous receipt.
Can Deposit Coin for Notes.
Any holder of the coin authorized by this
act may deposit the same with the treasur
er of the United States or any assistant
treasurer, in sums of not less than i0
and receive therefor certificates in de
nominations of 11, $3, to and (10 and mul
tiples or $10 corresponding with the de
nominations of United States notes, and
the coin deposited for or representing such
certificates shall be ret ained in the treasury
for the repayment of the same on demand.
Such certificates shall be receivable for cus
toms, taxes and alt-pobiio Nes, and when
so received may be reissued.
r No More Silver Purchases.
The secretary of the treasury is hereby
directed to susjwnd the purchase of silver
bullion, under the said act of July 14, 1S!K,
until the residue of the silver bullion be
longing to the United States has been
coined as required by the first section of
The Titli of the l iulerstandin.
Among those present at the conference
referred to above were Livingston and
Turner of Georgia, Cole of Tennessee,
Breckinridge of Kentucky, Breckinridge
of Arknnsas, Bynumof Indiana. Clark and
Oatesof Alabama, Bacon of New York,
Tracy, Williams, and Andrews of Massa
chusetts, and Brawley of South Carolina.
Cox of Tennessee and Livingston of Geor
gia have heretofore voted steadily with the
free coinage men. The understanding
reached was to suspend silver purchases, to
reserve sufficient silver to provide for re
demption of outstanding notes issued in
payment of silver representing the "profit"
or difference between the purchase price
and coin value of the silver heretofore
bought. After this is done silver purchases
are to be resumed unless there is new legis
lation meanwhile. It does not seem that
this will suit the free coinage men. A
number of them were seen, and none ex
pressed any satisfaction with the proposed
'.SILVER MEN FULL OF FIGHT.
They Will Have No Compromise Ar
rangement of the Conference.
The out-and-out free coinage men an
nounce that they will fight the proposition
to the death. Pierce of Tennessee said:
"The silver men at that conference will
find that they cannot speak for the free
silver men in this house. No agreement'
that they make will lie acknowledged by
the free silver men, who have learned to
know that in finance whatever "Wall street
asks is aeainst the interests of the agricul
tural world and laboring people. 1 want
no better guide how to vote than that Wall
street is for or against the measure. They
are opposed to anything in the interest of
the exporting states of the west and south."
Mlgitfy Poor Show for the Scheme.
The silver compromise proposition was
shown to the .Republicans by Tracey of
Xew York, and they were asked if they
would support it. Nearly all of
the Republicans who voted .with
the anti-silver men the last time, includ
ing Reed, replied that they would not do
so. It therefore seems that this latest at
tempt to repeal the Sherman silver bull
ion put chase act cannot gain the votes nec
essary to its passage, as the free coinage
Democrats say they will refuse to vote for
it, and the Republican defection more than
offsets the Democratic gain as a result of
Bow the Conference Waa Arranged.
The conference was arranged in a man
ner that was novel to say the least. It
seems that most of those present received
a note saying that Carlisle requested the
person invited to attend a meeting for an
informal conference on the silver question.
Carlisle himself got au invitation inform
ing him that certain Democratic represen
tatives would call upon him for a confer
ence. This note was signed by a Mr.
Kenney, connected with a publication
known as American Industries, lie is also
interested with Josiab Quincy in The
Surprise on Both Sides.
Carlisle met the gentlemen whom he
supposed bad called on him by their own
appointment and they naturally felt a
little flattered that Carlisle invited them.
Each of the visitors knowing the object of
the conference, the silver question was dis
enssen and an undenstanding'was reached.
as tncy were aoout to go, unrton Breckin
ridge, of Arkansas, called. He had re
ceived an invitation. lie was asked to stay
to dinner, it then being Carlisle's dining
honr. On their way to the table he apolo
gized to Carlisle for his late arrival by say
ing that he not received his invitation un
til a late hour. Carlisle assured Breckin
ridge that he had not sent him any invita
tion, whereupon that gentleman fished ont
the invitation from his pocket and present
ed it to his host. Carlisle produced the
note he had received. Mutual explanation
FIGt.HES ON THE PRECIOUS METALS.
Fact That Are of Interest Obtained from
Washington, Feb. 21. E. O. Leech, the
director of the mint, has transmitted to
congress a report on the production of the'
precious metals, covering the calendar year
1892. The value of the gold product from
the mines of the United States was ap
proximately i8, OOc.OOO, about correspond
ing to the average product of recent years.
The product of silver from our own mines
is placed at 58,000,000 ounces of the com
mercial value, at the average price of silver
during the year, of $30,750,000, and of the
coining value in silverdollurs of $T4.9S'J,'.KX1.
This is a falling off of 310,000 ounces from
the product of t he precediug year.
Falling On of the Gold Stock.
Daring the last year.that is from Feb. 10,
1S92. when the last movement, commenced,
to Feb. 5. the export of gold from the
port of New York has aggregated !H,",2;,
839. The total metallic stock on Jan. 1,
ls'.tt, was estimated to have been; Gold,
o4H,7ss,020; silver, .5'J3,30.:5; total, ,
43,153,3S5. The stock of gold in theUnited
States fell off during the last calendar year
830,000,000, while the stock of silver in
creased .4(i,0 10,000. The amount of money
in circulation (exclusive of the amount in
the treasury) was $I,G11,:,21,753 on Jau. 1,
1S03, an increase of $18,02S,124 during the
World's Product for the Year.
There was an increase of over 112,000,000
in the gold product of the world during the
last calendar year. Of this increase $2,500,
000 was from Australia, and over 9,0t0,000
from South Africa. The total silver prod
uct of the world increased during the last
calendar year about 7,650.000 ounces, oc-
I sasinned by an increase of 4.600,000 ounces

THURSTON REPLIES TO .KAiULANI.
lie Didn't Send Her to England 'or Steal
Washington, Feb. L Thurston, one
of the Hawaiian annexers, says, 'referring
to Princess Kaiulani's protest printed in
, these dispatches yesterday, that he did not
either directly or indirectly have anything
to do with sending the princess to Eng.
land, or have anything to do with her edu
cation or movements'.' That when she went
to England she was not heir to the thron,
as Kalakaua was alive and Liliuokalar.i
was the heir. When the latter came to the
throne she and the house of nobles nonv
inated Kaiulani as the heir.
The Other Charge Repudiated.
Clechorn, the father of the princess, is,
says Thurston, a British subject and all
her environments are British, and that the
young lady was sent to England "against a
strong feeling in Honolulu that she should
be educated in the United States." He
(Thurston) is not "trying to take away my
flag and throne," ns the princess had no
throne until Liliuokalani died for one
thing; and that Thurston and his colleagues
were reluctantlyforced to take their present
position by the inexorable logic of events.
Neumann Talks to Senators.
Neumann, the queen's envoy, had con
ferences with several senators yesterday,
to whom he presented letters of introduc
tion from business men en the islands and
others whom he knew personally before
leaving the United States several years
ago. Neumann failed to see Secretary
Foster, who came in from Watertown, N.
Y., to give him an interview, through
some misunderstanding of the hour of the
meeting which had beeu fixed by the secre
tary at 6 p. m. yesterday.
Doings in Congress liriefed.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21. Hansbrough pre
sented to the senate yesterday North Da
kota legislative resolutions favoring elec
tion of senators by the people, and expressed
himself as an advocate of that plan. The
sundry civil bill was then taken up and
amendments agreed to increasing the
amount of the bilL Allison and Gorman
both urged care in appropriating money.
Wolcott made an attack on the geological
survey, but couldn't get the appropriation
reduced. Without completing the bill an
executive session was held and the senate
In the house there was much filibuster
ing and business pioceeded slowly. The
bill for a bridge between New York and
New Jersey was passed and a bill to pay
war claims aggregating $320,000 was de
feated. Then under suspension of the rules
the naval appropriation bill, carrying over
f21,000,'j00, was passed, and the agricul
tural bill was passed in the same manner.
Open Sunday Is Dead.
Washington, Feb. 21. The World's fair
committee met yesterday and those pres
ent were with two exceptions all Sunday
closers, the open Sunday men taking care
to be absent for fear of their constituents.
The result of the meeting is accepted as
killing the movement to have the World's
fair open in any way on Sunday.
Did Not Appoint Garnaey.
Washington, Feb. 21. Secretary Foster
has decided to make no appointment of a
superintendent of public buildings at Chi
cago. George O. Garnsey's application for
the positiou made vacant by the resigna
tion of M. E. Bell was fully considered by
the secretary, but he hai decided not to
issue a commission. "
The House. Wants to See.
Washington, Feb. 21. Tucker of Vir
ginia offered in the house yesterday a reso
lution requesting the president to lay be

Hawaiian islands and requested that it be
printed in The Record. Objection waa
made to the latter request.
