CLEVEUK 0W1I. The President Has a Plan for Currency Reform. HE'S A GREAT ACTOIi NOW. He Believes the Present System is Inherently Vicious. HE HAS A REMEDY. Is Satisfied His Diagnosis of the C.ise is Correct. It Will be the Leading Feature of His Message. New Yokk, Nov. 14. It is reported here that the t -resident is considering the idea of submitting to the country a plan, for currency reform. lie believes that the curency system is inherently vicious; that it is responsible for financial ills, which must recur so long- as it is main tained. Sat is tied with this diagnosis, he will undoutteiiy prescribe a remedy calculated to give the finances perma nent healtn. oeiieviay: possibly that this can be d on? only by supplanting the j.-resent system. the subject will be the dominant fea ture in tiij message to congress in De cember. It is said he will favor many of the suggestions male by the Bankers national convention at Baltimore in Sep tember. What is known as the Balti more plan adopted at that convention ap pealed to the president as having fea tures of m.T t. lie obtained a copy of tne jlan and since that tiuio he h as been studying and working on the subject. Brsetly stated, the Ua'timore plan pro vides fur a guarantee fund obtained by levying a smiil tax upon all the banks. This fund id :o be use! to pay tiie notes of banks which become iuaolveut. Since it became whispered among financiers th;.t the president was pre paring to adcress congress upon the cur rency system, so many suggestions have reac-ned him that he thought it well to some expert opinion among bankers whom he could not personally consult. The present visit of William F.. Curt!3, assistant secretary of the treasury Oi tins city, is understood to be for the purf ose of so lading public opinion here upon the general subject. While Mr. Curtis is in New York, As sistant Secretary of the d'reasury Con rad N. Jordon is in Washington. He is urgi ng upon ".he president to recommend to congress he appointment of a cur rency commission, nou -partisan in char acter, and composed of representative men of all sections which shall consider the currency question in its various bear ings and report a system of reform to Congress.

Felix Morris, the American character comedian, wbo will appear at the Grand this evening in "A Gatn-5 of Cards'' and 'Behind the Sceues" arrived in Topeka from Atchison tais morning and is at the Throop with his com l toy an 1 his wife. A Jut KXii. reporter found him on the stage cf the Grand with several mem bers of the company rehearsing a scene from "Behind trie Scenes." He is not a large man and is forty-five years of age. He and bis wife have for several years made their home at Ocon ornowoc. Wis. The name, Mr. Morris says, is Indian and meacs "Cave of the winds." For several years he and his wife were with Kodna Vokes and he was with her when she last visited Topeka six vears ago. She had a small house and Mr. Mor ris remembers the was very mad about it. For only two years has Mr. Morris been starring and he is liattered by the success he has had. He is a very retiring man and did not care much to talk about himself, but he is a pleasant gentleman and obliging. "1 was born in Wales forty live years ago," he said. "My father was a very devout church man, arid w; i e the wish of my life was to become a c actor, he would not Lear of it Thua i. was that I began studying medicine. 1 was educa ted in France and Scotland, ami was a graduate of Guy's hospital, London. I didn't like it and of cc urse didn't get along well with it. The best I did was to get a job washing bottles and mixing powders in an apothecary shop. "The impulse to become an actor was too strong for me and in spite of the fact that my lather was very angry about it I quit the business and sailed for America determined to make the eilort miyway. "Stock companies were tiie thing then and Albany, N. Y., had one. The city of New York frightened me an 1 1 drifted up there. I approached the manager in fear and tremoling and told him my story and after he had spent sometime in try ing to dissuade me from my object I as sured him that my means were very low so that in pity, 1 think, he gave me a place selling tickets at the gadery door at a little mora than enough to pay my board. "This was a terrible disappointment, but I stuck to it and tiaai iy one ui ght my time came when oae of the members of the company was absent. 1 took the part, small though it was. aud they said I did well with it. It was nut long after that that I got on to play small parts. 1 have been acting ever since. "I tried managing once or twice but did not do well at it. "For along time I was the comedian of the old San Francisco theater. I think my lirst great hit was there in 'On Change' which I afterwards took to Loudon and i laved for 3 5J niirbts :' Mr. Morris was mucd interested in the election and said he was glad that Kan sas had gone into the hinds cf the Re publicans again. He was much interest ed in Governor Leweili ig to the extent that he thought he must be a Welshman. You will miss a great deal if you do not see see Mr. Morris this evening. WATTIES ON NOT DONE. He C rover Still Iiiiy .Kxeoriiitingc Cleveland. Louisville, Nov. 11. "Haven't the Democrats played the deviJ'r"' said Henry Watterson, when requested vesterday to give hi3 opinion of Tuesday's defeat. When asked who was to blame, he re plied : "Why, Cleveland, of course, raore than any other man on earth. It's all his fault. I don't know what is to become of the Democratic parly. I'm not certaiu whether we've got any Democratic party or not. That's the lirst. question that is suggested by the congressional elections. Are we a real political organiza tion or a mere agglomeration of faction?, thrown togetaer by the up heaval of the times? If we ever settle that dispute then the next inquiry is what are we going to do to recover from the terrible licking we have just re ceived'.' "Grover Cleveland was never a con sistent tariff reformer. When he be came president of the United States it took him three years to ibid a policy, and then he ran away from it as soon as he was caught. In 1?S7, when he wrote that first famous message, he got so scared about it that ten days later he published an interview m the New York Herald, aking the backbone out of the whole thing. Whom will the Democrats nominate in lS'JO".' Oh. my Lord, man, don't talk about that. A strong effort will be made iri the next Democratic na tional convention to sen 1 the tariff issue to the rear and raise the strange banner cf free silver, d'ais may split the party in a thousand pieces or destroy it altogether. The Democrats could never win on the issue of free silver. Yet we must be prepared to tee the attempt made to commit Democracy to that finan cial heresy. I could not see a gloomier outlook for the democratic party than the present. EASY :6N THEM. Tiie I'opulit Iolice Iet tiie ICepublicans Have a Keul "ice Time.

The judge let Freddie go. Miss Mary Marshall claimed she had absorbed nothing but S3;ne cider, but the police declare the symptoms were more as if she had drauk a sky rocket, so they locked her up. She was lined five dol lars in the court this morning. Jim Botkin also was drunk. Jim is a laborer.

Mr. Griggs says he was standing within twenty-live feet of the rig when it was taken, but his attention was so steadfast on the procession that he did not notice his loss until he started to drive home. Mr. Grigtrs says the thief may keep the horse if he will return the buggy and harness, for horses are cheap but buggies are not. It is supposed that someone took the rig for a little drive and left it iu the sub urbs somewhere when they got through with it. It hasn't been located yet, how ever. A horse harnessed to a buggy was seen running away on Quincy street last night after the cannon was tired. This might have been Mr. Griggs'. SLOAT LEAVES TOPEKA.
