Senor Canovas, tho Spanish prime

General Campos sent for Mr Williams

Gluey straightway prepared a state
paper, in which ho diaagreod entirely
wtih tho conclusion of tho Spanish min

based on too consular treaty existing
between Spain and tho I'nitod States.
From this treaty, Bignod In 1799, con

to cover any diplomatic iiueatlons. Tho
treaty with Spain, however, specified
that United States consulnr ollicara shall

Bobton, Mass., Oat. 13 ?The meeting
of the Massachusetts Boform Club at the
Vondome to night was a tremendous
ovation to Secretary Carlisle and his
speech on the finances of the Uovern
ment under the present administration
was listened to with the greatest inter?
est. Following is a short aynopals of
He paid a compliment to Boston's
conservatism, alluded to the danger
that tho silver agitation had been to
the financiers of the oountry; but said
that danger was now about ovor and sil?
ver, however, was not the on'y part of
the currency that embarrassed the gov?
The issue of Treasury notes in 180}
was a mistake, but did not trouble th>*
government much till tho resumption
of sp.cle payment In 1879 required tho
government to pay its obligations in
gold. Since then the redemption and
reissuing of Treasury notes had seri?
ously hampered tho Treasury, requiring
a reserve fund to meet the demand.
The government ought not to be re?
quired to do this or If required tho
notes ought to be cancelled when re?
The secretary recommmds legislation
on this line and gives figures to show
how by funding tbeso notes in 1879, the
date of redemption, tho government
might have saved 899,039,400, a debt
which it has been compelled to incur in
order to keop this form of currency out-,
standing, and maintain its value. In
conclusion ho Bays:
'There is more than one way in
which an adequate and Bafe currency
can be secured for the uso of the people
without perverting the powers of tho
government, or subjecting its credit to
the vicissitudes of either legitimate
trade or reckless speculation, and 1
most sincerely hope the subject will ro
aeivo tho careful consideration of all
who feel an interest in the adoption of a
sound policy, and that a plan may be
formulated that will mo?t the approval
"In tho meantime, the government
wiil continue to redeem its obligations
promptly on presentation, according to
the requfrements of tho existing laws
and public policy. Those, who want gold
will got it, and thoBe who want silver
will pet it. Tho parity of the two metals
will bo maintained and tho whole vol
time of our currency, pap-r and coin
alike, will be kept equal to the highost
standard recognized by tho commercial
nations of tho world."

With the Kndorsement That It be

est Tulft From the Prisoner.
. San Francisco, Oot. 12 ?The story
of the mysterious statement of Durrant
sealed in an envolopo marked "To be
opened if I am convicted," brought for?
ward so prominently by District At?
torney Barnes, does not soem to worry
tho defense's lawyers or the defondant
so much as It angers them. Durrant
himself Is not only wrathful, but pro?
fesses to be greatly surprised at tho
conduct of tho roDortor upon whoso
testimony the prosooutlon will roly to
establish its points. "I do not liko to
say anything again3t a woman" said
Durrani, "but my disappointment is so
keen that I cannot keep silent.
*'Tho reporter has been kind to me
in'many ways?has given mo repeated
assurances of belief In my innocence
and has often said that I had her pray?
ers for a speedy termination of this
terrible nightmare. She hes repeatedly
sought expressions of opinion from mo.
Adhering to an inflexible rule of not
denying or endorsing anything,whether
for or against me, I always gave her the
same answer. My time bad not come
to talk. At a recent call she detailed
thij dramatic yarn about my having
written a mysterious something which
I put in an onvelope with a strict in
junction, distinctly written on tho out?
side, that it bo returned to me in case
of acquittal, or opened in the event of
couviction. This stupid story annoyed
me, and realizing how much talk this
would make, 1 asked her as a special
favor that she make no mention of It In
any way either to tho press or to tho
prosecution. Sho readily asaonted to
my request and oven wont further.
" 'If you doubt mo,' Hho said, 'got your
Bibln.' I took that dear book and passed
it to her. Sho placed it on tho wicket
dour and solemnly sworo that she would
make no mention of it. Imagino my
surprise when tho district attorney
asked me about that envelope. Id was
not that I cared about tho story. It was
not truo. I had nothing to fear. Solit
tie did it impress mo after I supposed is
was relegated to oblivion whoro it be?
longed, that I bad absolutely forgotton
it. I wroto a statement, It is true;
everybody knows that. It was made
public, but somewhat garbled. There
was nothing mysterious about it and no i
envelope enclosed It.
"The press talk of my coolnoss, my
nerva. It is not my fortltudo in this
hour of darkness, It Is my all-abiding
faith In God that sustains mo. I have
faith in His goodness that He will
protect me bocause I am innocent of
these frightful crimes. The district
attorney has made considerable sport
of my ignorance of the word 'alibi.' I
bad never been interested in things
criminal; I have never read atrial. The
word was as strangn to mo as If it had
been Sanskrit. After my arrest I hoard
tho word several times, wondered what
it was and did not ask, as I knew it
would make mo appear ignorant. Tho
conversation soon instructed mo."
