DKNVEIt. June 8. The Times to-day published an Interview with George E. Rob erts, director of the mint, regarding the proposition for the establishment of a mint at Manila. "I have heard nothing about the matter since the adjournment of Con gress," said Mr. Roberts, "but I know that it Is receiving the attention of the War Department, which is obtaining all the Information possible on the subject. Army officers seem to favor the establish ment of a mint at Manila, and an effort to substitute American coinage for the Mexican now in general use. There, is considerable opposition, however, as it is certain that an attempt to push the Amer ican dollar and redeem It in gold would precipitate commercial disturbances that might result in disaster. Secretary Gage Is opposed, and I am Inclined to think this plan will not be adopted. 'Two plans have been proposed. The first of these Is to establish a free mint at Manila for the rnakins of a. Philippine dollar Interchangeable with the Mexican dollar and redeemable, at a fixed price in poid. I'nder this plan producers of silver would sell their product to establishments having trade relations with the East, which would have It coined at the Manila mint and put Into circulation. This is the plan adopted by the Hritish government, which coins an Indian dollar which is cir culated from the Straits Settlements, and has so farbeen successful in competing with the Mexican dollar and the rupee. The second plan is to issue a 'token' about the size of a Mexican dollar with enough less silver to prevent it from going to the melting pot or out of the country. Inter changeable with the Mexican dollar and redeemable in gold equally with Mexican coin." BRITISH PACIFIC CABLE. It Will ne the Longest Ever Con- atrncteri and Will Coat SUO.IKm.noo. WASHINGTON.
