THE MONEY QUESTION DEMANDS
ATTENTION AT ONCE.
Now York, Mny 11).?Mr. Wanamaker
was interviewed here yesterday and said
in reference to his speeech at the meeting
of the Business Men's League on last Fri?
"I am not apologizing for that speech,
nor do I propose to defend it. It stands
for itself, and I meant every word of it.
I did not expect that any great import?
ance would he attached to it by people
generally. I am rather surprised that it
should be sf.; hut since it bus attracted
some attention, 1 may say that I am glad
of it, for the result may do good. It must
not be supposed, however, that I am a
pessimist. I could not afford to bo one,
even if my inclinations) ran that way. I
have too much at stake. I do not believe,
i though, that the way to correct an evil is
to gloss it orer. I have always taught
myself to look every subject or emergency
straight In the face, and that is why I
spoke as I did last Friady night. It will
do the couutry no good to sing itself to
sleep or to try to believe that facts are
different from ivhat they are."
"Your speech was not made at a polit?
"No," responded Mr. Wanamaker. "I
spoke to about a hundred hard-headed
business men of this State, and the
speech was largely on State affairs. It
was nothing else than n fair, frank talk,
without concealments of any kind. I felt
we could be useful to each other by count?
ing the pulse of business and making a
truthful diagnosis of its long-nursed sick?
ness I think I mad* between sixty and
seventy speeches during the last cam?

ple, to vote against Brynntsm, and argued

vigorously?that the filling of oflices
would not be the first or only business of

"The people are not all fools," contin?
ued Mr. Wanamaker. "It is but natural
that, they snould cry out against the
power that can relieve them, when they
see the Dingley bill, framed four months
ago, banging in midair as if the whole
nation were taking a summer holiday, in?
stead of going through a slow fever, with
every State a kind of hospital of fear and
trembling The people do not easily for?
get. It will not be enough when the next
investigation of Senatorial speculations is
made to evade or to blufl with a nonchal?
ant: 'Yes, 1 bought those stocks; what of
it!-' You certainly do not forget that a
long-suffering people in New York city
beard, 'What are you going to do about
it!'' until they rose in their strength and
said: 'We will show you,' and they did.
"I confess that live years of listening to
a steady stream of people passing through
my office, with their woes, sorrow and
starvation, has worn upon me. I am
alarmed by tho increase in the numbers
of this procession the last, four or five
months. Bo many thousands have used
up their hard-earned savings, and my
soul cries out'.when I'see tho tariff bill
practically aground in the Senate and no
sign of any intention to take up the cur?
rency question, which to the miuds of
many people is the largest half of the
problems that have come down to us from
the last administration.
"Whilo I bebeve that the good times
anticipated will come out. of the employ?
ment of the people, it must not be for?
gotten that there are thousands of busi?
ness men in this country who believe that
there will be no permanently.settled pros?
perity until definite deliverances are had
from Congress upon monetary questions.
If there is to be any enlarged use of sil?
ver, why not promptly determine upon it.
If it is the intention that nothing shall
be doue on the silver question, and we
are to stand exactly where we are. it were
far better to say so boldly and at once and
not drift or shilly-shally.* Wo want
something or nothing and that very quick?
ly, if the country is to start forward on
its promised career of prosoerity. There
is work for the House to do besides meet?
ing only to adjourn. I do not believe the
country will indorse a do-nothing policy
ivhile waiting on the Senate.
"I do not know what is thought in
Washington on these mat ters, but what
I have been saying is the kind of talk a
merchant hears," continued Mr. Wana?
maker. "It is possible that Cabinet otli
cers and Congressmen who are not facing
hundreds and thousands of unemployed
people every week may not have ail the
i facts of tho situation before them. What,
the people want is tho promised action,
with as little delay as possible. The drain
and strain is too great to be borne any
longer than is imperatively necessary.

NOTE TO GO TO SPAIN.
The President's Plan to Secure
Independence of Cuba.
Washington, May IM.? The President's
policy in regard to Cuba has been deter?
As soon as Commissioner Calhouu's re?
port of the condition of affairs in the
island is received, which will he in about
three weeks, unless ho has received or?
ders to delay it until after the ; tariff bill
has been passed, and if it confirms tbo
statements made In the reports of Consul
General Lee, the President will address a
note to the Spanish government suggest?
ing that Cuba be allowed to purchase her
independence. The note will be friendly
in Its tone, but will be emphatic in ex?
pressing the ^President's opinion of the
liest solution of the difficulty.
If Spain should refuse to entertain the
proposition, the President is fully dcter
, mined to take more radical steps, even to
the extent of declaring intervention. lie
has discussed this matter with several of
his friends and advisers and would have
taken more positive action ere this but
for the appeal ot Senator Ilauna that
recognition of the Cuban question by the
administration would be disastrous to the
commercial and financial world. The pe?
tition received by the Secretary of State
from the leading commercial houses of the
great cities, however, has made it appar?
ent to the President that peace upon the
island Is desired as the first step toward
restoring a paralyzed commerce, and he
will undoubtedly give the petition bis
careful consideration. There may be no
further action until Mr. Calhoun's report
is rec eived, but at that time some action
on the part of the. President lookiug to
the independence of Cuba through pur?
chase or otherwise is as certain as fate.

GAMES OF CHANCE ALSO COME
UP FOR DISCUSSION?NAME OF
CHANG KD. *
Toletlo, low?, May 19.?Bishop Castli
presided over the United Brethren Gen?
end Conference to-day.
Tho morning session was chielly occu?
pied in tiie consideration of tlie report ou
moral reform. The committee recom?
mended that abstinence from the use of
tobacco be hereafter required of all can?
didates for the ministry. This brought
a number of delegates to their feet, who
spoke with animation for and against
the recommendation. Professor White,
of tho Erie conference, said:
"I am not a tobacco user, but it seems
to me that as long as men within the
church use tobacco it 's inconsistent to
state th.it nobody else who does not use
it shall come in. The. law is impractica?
ble There are other methods of reaching
the desired end."
Dr. Brooks, of Kansas, said: "I hold a
good feeling toward the brother who is
championing the cause of the tobacco
user, for I presume the use of it is quite
prevalent in the conference be represents.
I have been in about twenty different
conferences in this church, and I have
not been in any that did not have minis?
ters enough with clean mouths to preach
the gospel I remember when ministers
and church members used the whiskey
flask to sharpen their appetites. Shall
we say that because this used to be so we
shall admit that it is right, now, or shall
we require that our young men set the
ol fl preachers an example for cleaning
The same committee also recommended
a sweeping law against theatre going
horse-racing, prize fighting, Sabbath ex
ciirsions. card playing and games of
chance, which brought out another lively
discussion. Professor White took a de?
cided position against this report. He
"I am opposed to the entire recommen?
dation, not that I favor 'dancing or card
playing, but 1 am opposed to this class of
church legislation. Our denomination is,
perhaps, as free from the things that thi?
action aims at as any Christian church in
our land, and thus far we have gotten
along without such legislation. Our
Methodist friends have had a good deal
of legislation on this very 'subject, but it
has not helped them. Indeed, it seems
to nie that proportionately there are more
dancers who are Methodists than United
Brethren and more Methodists that play
cards than United Urethren. These ends
are to be condemned, but there is a proper
and an Improper way to reach them. We
must allow the private individual a cer?
tain amount of liberty in this respect. A
law such as proposed here instead of
helping the matter will make'it worse."
Dr. Ke.pharti. of Pennsylvania,remark?
ed: "A Pennsylvania judge recently de?
cided that all games of chante are gamb?
??Then according to that decision," said
Rev. Mr. Morrison, of Knnnsss, "all Kan?
sas farmers are gamblers, for it is a game
of chance with us all the time."
The sentiment of the conference seemed
to be in favor of an advisory clause
against harmful amusements, but that
no prohibitory law should he enacted.
Tart of the report was sent back to the
committee for modification.
The committee on boundaries recom?
mended but few changes in annual con?
ference boundaries. The name of the
Parkersburg conference was changed to
i West Virginia conference. New confer?
ences were authorized in Japan, China and
Rev. Dr. Dysinger, fraternal delegate

Richmond, Va.,- May 10.?(Special)?
The Democratic State central committee,
composed of fifty members, five from
each Congressional district, will meet
here to-morrow night to determine upon
a place for holding the State convention.
The convention will be held to nominate
candidates for governor, lieutenant gov?
ernor and attorney-general.
Richmond, Ronuoke, Lynchburg, Nor?
folk, Charlotteaville, Stauntou and Old
Point Comfort will contest for the honor
of entertaining the convention and the
contest promises to be a sharp one.

The Roanoke detonation reached here j
at 9 o'clock to-mgiit and arc quartered at j

The relative-strength of the cities con?

convention appears at this time to be
about as follows:
Roanoke, IG; Lynchburg, ?; Richmond,

AT AN END.
Constantinople. May 11).?There was a
sudden and unexpected change iu the po?
ll ticnl situation shortly before noon yes?
terday. Russia quietly showed her hand
and thereby forced Germany and Turkey
out of the game to all intents and pur?
Last night and early this morning Tur?
key, supported by Germany, was practi?
cally defying Russin, France, Austria,
Great Britain, and Italy, insisting on the
annexation of l'hessaly in addition to the
huge war indemnity, and seemingly was
determined to march on Athens.
The ministers received ollicial advices
from Sofia announcing that orders had
been issued for the partial mobilization
of the Bulgarian army, possibly at the in?
stigation of Russia. There was a hurried
consultation of the ministers.
The war party was for further defiance,
but in tho end pacific counsels seem to
have prevailed, for at 11:85 a. m. orders
were telegraphed to Ed hem Pasha, tho
Turkish commander-in-chief in Thessaly,
to cease hostilities. Tho peace negotia?
tions will now bo undertaken in real ear?
nest, and the Greeks will most likely be
spared any further humiliation.
It transpires that the czar made a di?
rect appeal to tho sultan to order his
troops to cease hostilities and arrange an
armistice, and this, coupled witli tho fact
that most serious results would have en?
sued if Turkey had persisted iu her de?
fiant attitude, brought about the present
state of affairs. Twellx Pasha, the Tur?
kish minister for foreign affairs, called
on the dean of the diplonifatic corps. Baron
von Collco, this afternoon, to convey to
tho foreign ministers the sultan's decision
to arrange an armistice.
It is now believed that the terms of
pence will be negotiated directly between
Turkey and Greece. The sultan has or?
dered two hospitals of six hundred and
one hundred beds respectively to be erect?
ed near the Ylldlz Kiosk, in order to en
I able him to visit the Turkish soldiers who
have been wounded in the campaign
