government. The Xorth German Ga

heveral interviews with Chancellor von
Caprivi, obtained a semi-official communi

32uglish occupation of Egypt as essential
to the prosperity of that country. The
article obviously pointed that the German

A TURK'S IDEA OF JUSTICE.
CovsTASTiyoPLK, May at. The Turkish
officer and Uigjtjve students who were ar
rested by Russian., bailors for assaulting
the wife and daughter of the chief drago
man of the Russian embassy, in a garden
in a garden at Buvundere, were promptly
put on trial, found guilty and sentenced to
undergo imprisonment for six months. In
addition to this punishment the sultan has
issued a special edict ordering that when
the sentence expires the offenders shall be
banished to Tripoli for life.
The ladies were walking in a garden,
when they were seized 03' the officer and
students, who forcibly kissed them. A
party of sailors belonging to a Russian
dispatch bout happened to be in the gar
den. They heard the ladies' cries for help
and ran to their rescue. They captured
four of the assailants, but the fifth suc
ceeded in making his escape for the time
being. The sailors conveyed their prison
ers to the Russian embassy and delivered
them into the keeping of M. de Neildorff,
the Russian embassador. The day after
the assault was committed the man who
made his escape was arrested and locked
up at the embassy. The affair has created
much comment, and it is feared it will re
sult in complications between the Russian
and Turkish governments.

winter follows the fall of tho leaf, does
disease shadow tho footstep of declining

An Air of Uncertainty Surrounds the
New York, May 24. Bradstreet's today
While a general belief prevails that sil
ver currency legislation of some kind will
be passed at the present session of con
gress, the divergence of views expressed in
that body on the subject, the variety of
measures before it, and the slow progress
which thus far has been ma'de in the dis
cussion by the senate, surrounds the whole
matter "with uncertainty. Inter
views by a representative of Brad
street's with leading New York
bank officials, of which a selection of
the most interesting follows, developed
this fact. At the same time it can be said,
taking the sentiment of the New York
banking interests as indicative of those
held in similar quarters throughout the
country, that some' increase of the cur
rency through the issue of silver notes is
regarded as almost inevitable, Coupled
with this it is also noticeable that alarmist
views are not entertained, even though in
some instances there are doubts as to the
wisdom of the step or the ultimate effect
wich it may produce on the general finan
cial condition of the country.
Hon. Charles S. Fairchild, ex-secretary
of the United States treasury, and presi
dent of the New York Security and Trust
"In my report as secretary of the treas
ury for 1SS7 1 outlined to congress a method
of dealing with the silver currency ques
tion which, in substance, was to limit the
supply of silver currency furnished by the
government to the ascertained demand for
it by the people. This would have sup
plie'd the demand for additional silver cur
rency without affecting the market posi
tion of silver considered as bullion, but
without involving tho danger of deprecia
tion in the silver currency outstanding. I
still consider this the best method of deal
ing with the subject. But at the moment
it is difficult to predict either what will
be done, or what form it will take. The
ease with which the accumulation of &4,
000,000 of silver iu the treasury in 1SS6 dis
appeared serves as a forcible argument in
favor of future action in the same line. The
national bank circulation was being rap
idly reduced, and with this came a great
increase in business, particularly in por
tions of the country where banking facili
ties were wanting and where large
amouits of additional actual currency
were thus required. This created a vacu
um in the currency which has been suc
cessfully supplied by silver certificates,
and on this success the sentiment in favor
of silver currency is largely based. But
connected with the pending silver
legislation is another proposition of
no little importance. It is proposed
to turn the fund held for the
redemption of national bank notes into
the treasury to be used for the general pur
porses of the government. That money is
held expressly for the redemption of na
tional bank notes. The idea is that the
fund shall go to the treasury and be ap
plied for whatever payments the govern
ment may have to make, and thus come
into immediate circulation. Thac the
country will have an expansion of cur
rencv to the amount of this fund, which
is, say 00,000,000. "We shall have botli the
fund now on deposit and the national
bank notes. But the process neces
sarily involves a contraction to the
amount of the notes the redemption
of which were thus secured. As the
national bank notes are presented for re
demption they would be cancelled and re
tired, and experiences in dealing with re
tired issues of government notes show that
all but an iniinitismal portion of them
will be so turned in. In other words there
would be a contraction, followed by a cur
rency contraction of the same amount.
The " proposition involves a breaking of
trust on the part of the United States gov
ernment. Moreover, the same reasoning
which would justify the use of the money
deposited to redeem the national bank
notes will justify the use of the gold and
sivcr held to redeem the gold and silver
Hon. II. "W. Cannon, president of the
Chase National bank, New York, and ex
comptroller of the currency, said: "If
the bill which was substantially agreed
on in caucus becomes a law, I do not think
any bad effects will follow. The issue of
silver notes under the bill will bo put out
for actual deposits of silver bullion at its
value expressed gold. Therefore the circu
lation issued will be substantially on a
gold basis, and if the secretary of the treas
ury be permitted to sell the bullion, if in
his judgment it be necessary to redeem
any part of the notes and to prevent large
shfpments of gold, I do not see how the
increase of the currency can have any per
nicious effect, so far as forcing gold out of
the country is concerned. There is, of
course, ereat differences of opinion as to
whether we need additional currency to
conduct the business of the country. The
proposed bill would increase the currency
about 2o,000,000 per annum. Our national
bauk note circulation is being rapidly re
tired and will soon reach the minimum
under the law. It is not unlikely that con
gress will permit national banks to organ
ize with a smaller sum of bonds, and, if
this is done, the bank note circulation will
further decrease. It then seems that a
reasonable increase of the currency by the
issue of silvernotes would not be unservice
able, and I think that we should very likely
need an additional amount of notes to ear
ly on the business of the country. The
country is so large that there is now a
great waste when currency is shipped to
move the crops, and we need at times a
larger amount of money to do our business
comfortably, and, as the countrv is grow
ing rapidly, I can not see any danger of a
somewhat" increased circulation. There is,
of course, a great difference of opinion as
to the effect of tho proposed silver legisla
tion, but in justice to many people who be
lie e that we have not enough currency, I
think that some such legislation should be
Mr. George G. Williams, president of the
Chemical National bank, said: "It seems
almost useless to raise a voice against the
Hood which is threatened. There certain
ly is dauger in precipitating au immense
amount of silver into our circulation. It
has been a foregone conclusion that con
gress was certain to make some radical leg
islation, and hence conservative men have
raised no notes of warning. It should be
remembered, however, that what is not
right in principle can never be made so by
the fiat of law. Free coinage would be a
species of legislation on a par with the re
pudiation of Mississippi a few years ago, and
seems to me abhorrent to every sentiment
of right. The bill proposed by Mr. Win
dom, unking the certificate based ou silver
redeemable in bullion at its market value,
is of a character entirely different, and,

at Cincinnati, in addressing rhe Bankers
association, I referred to the fact that
both political parties were then, a
they are now, committed to silver,
and the predominance of sdver in
ourc currency was to be expected. This
has been fully realized by the events
which are now transpiring. I think it is
evident that gold will, under the circum
stances, naturally be relegated to a sec:
ondary place. It is not necessary to depre
cate the use of silver iu the currency in its
proper position toward cold, but it fs inan-ife-iy
unwise to make silver the lead
horse of the team, n position which it
never can properly hold- People must ask
themselves what will become of wold if it
