additions to this department may be found the "Opal" silk As the
opal is among gems so is this silk among silks. Satin Duchess in

Bankers Complete Their I'rogramiue
Adjourn The W. '. T. V.
Chicago, Oct. 20. The bankers conven
tion has adjourned after two days of dis
cussionof the financial .question. The
convention declared itself unanimously in
favor of the unconditional repeal of the
purchase clause cf the "Sherman" law.and
a feature of the closing session was the
presentation of a beautiful ebony gavel to
Chairman Khawn. Joseph C. Hendrix,
ol Mew York, spoke on the kiud of bank
iug system needed, lie said that the sys
tem mnst be built to ride the storms of
panic and'tnust do it. The stinging lesson of
the panic of WS was thaf "Honesty is the
Horace White, of Xew Verk, held that
bank notes were the best currency we
have better than government currency.
He held that elasticity was a prime
requisite for a currency, end the govern
ment could not supply that elasticity.
Bonds as security for bank notes were not
couducive to elasticity. Security and
elasticity were both obtained by the
Scotch system, where the liability of
stockholders w as unlimited. The national
banking act must bo gotten rid of. He
said: ' If bond security required of na
tional bauks were dispensed with and its
place taken by either a safety fund, un
limited liability or bank consolidation an
elastic currency would be secured."'
il.. U. .Lieecu delivered au address in
which he charged all the present trouble
to silver. He said: "All foreign investors
and the Kreat mass of our own business
people believe that it is impossible for this
country to continue to ausoru in its cur
reney a depreciated and depreciating
metal without resulting in placing our
monetary system on a silver basis, where
our paper dollar will represent only a
promise-to pay a silver dollar. This is the
logical, the practical, the business reason,
and it is equally logical to say that it will
not disappear until the cause is removed."
In another hall of the Art Institute the
W. C. T. U. continued its sessions. The
report of the Women's Temple, concern-
iug which a warm battle was expected,
was received and adopted with very little
opposition. It showed that the Temple
had been largely erected by the gifts of
individuals, only 203 unions iu the United
States having contribute1 in excess of
tlOO. The revenue now was in the neigh
Coihett and Mitchell Will Have to Hunt
Pin -rr v.o. Oct. l'o. Corbett and Mitch-
1 have received ofiickil notice that the
sherilt of Kinus county. New York, where
the arena of the Coney Island club is situ
atcd, has decided not to allow the fight to
come oil iu Kings county on Dec. 18.
Mitchell said thai in his opinion if it were
illegal to fight in one state it was also in
another, so New Orlaans is out of the
question. If the tattle could not be
brought oft here, he said, it would be else
where, and suggested either Mexico or Ha
vana as the place.
At either of these places be would meet
Corbett, not under his pet Marquis of
Qjeensbery rules, but- under London
prize ring rules, on the turf with bare
knuckles and all the other conditions
which surrounded the battle for the
world's championship in former times.
Corbett could make the stake what be
saw fit and he would come forward with his
side of it whatever the amount. Corbett
said he would continue to train and if the
fight did not come off it would not be his
fault. He refused to say whether be
would fight elsewhere.
VVatterson Itccoming Impatient.
Louisville, Oct. 20. Henry Watterson
in au editorial in The Courier Jourua 1
giving the soutneru senators a "going
over"' for delaying the passage of the re
real bill, says: "When tariff reform i
beaten, when the rescinding of the federal
election laws is beaten, when Democratic
victory is converted . into Democratic ob
loquy and defeat, and w hen the business
interests of the country, detached from
healthy intercourse with the commercial
world, are relegated to a plague-stricken
comradeship with those nations, to wit,
Mexico and Central and South America,
whose monetary, like their political, con
ditions are in a state of chronic distemper,
then will the southern and so called Dem
ocratic senators learn in sober earnest ttiat
there is a people to condemn and a God to
punish alike the faithless and incapable.'
