'GANS & ILEIN GOLD COINAGE IN INUIA, Members of the Herschell Currency Commission May Recommend Such Action. At the Same' Time They Will Op pose Further Free Silver Coinage. Surprising Developments in Political Sen timent lan England--Failure of the Brussels Conference Assured. ICopyright 1892 by the Associated Press.1 LONDON, Dee. 9,.-Letters from the British delegates to the Brussels conference an nounce their return to England neat week. l'hey will oppose whatever requests the American delegates may make in regard to prolonged adjournment. A representative of the Associated press has authority from high source to state that the official dele gates, Sir Charles Rivers Wilson and Sir C. Fremantle, deputy master of the British mint, do not expect that the conference will be resumed after adjournment, and that Bertram Currie will decline to return to Brussels. In the meantime. Baron Her sehell's India currency committee, which adjourned without date until the Brussels conference should have ended, has resumed sitting and is taking evidence of experts. Members of the committee seem strongly in favor of the adoption of gold coinage in India, and concurrent cessation of the free coinage of silver. What chiefly prevents an early determination of this policy is the uncortainty prevailing among members regarding the action of the Amer ican government, as a risk of paralysis of Anglo-Indian trade would be increased ten fold under repeal or suspension of the sil ver purchase act. T'he committee has strong reason to await developments in the United States. Currie is among the minor ity which seems ready to risk everything by a prompt declaration in favor of gold. A representatise of the Associated press has reason to state that apart from the protests of Anglo-Indian bankers, leading single standard experts have advised the committee against such a radical change in Indian currency. The Indian government also would prefer that the committee pre sent such a report to parliament as will be tantamount to a recommendation that the existing system be left untouched. Questioned by the Indian Currency asso ciation as to whether it would take meas ures to protect its currency in the event of the failure of the Brussels conference, the Indian governmentl to-day declined to give assurance on the subject. The reply further states that the government cannot recommend that the secretary for India stop the sale of council bills below rates now current. Pending a decision by the Herschel committee, the Indian Currency association thought to steady its position by getting the Indian government to prom iso not to sell council bills bldow a fixed rate. 'I 'le government, however, prefers to retain complete freedom of action. The annual conservative caucus. known as the Union of Constitutional associations, will open Monday at lehelr-ld. Party man agers who resisted the clamor of the rank and file for a protectionist platform, have been obliged to give way. Though at heart protectionists, the leaders fear the adoption of protection as a definite party plank would enable the Iilbralsa to sweep the country at the next gen eral election. Even a declaration in favor of fair trade was deemed dangerous. Eventually, however, the feel ing displayed at the anricuitural confer ence andi now pervading the party com pelled the central executive to accept the resolutions of protectionists in spirit, thiu'ph veiled in form. One of the resolu tions that will be submitted to the caucaR declares that free trare Is against tha; best interests of the working cla-ee of G eat Ihritain. 'I he general expectation is that the caucus will support reciprocity prin ciples. 'I lie rapidity with which protec tionist ideas have become resurgent is the roeatest political phenomenon of tie day. Inalfour will probably tone downi the pro tectionist tendencires, but will renew and accentrnttl deicrlarations in favor of bi metallillaa, which promises to be Iiramong the leading t icula of the conservative game.

Perfeot order has been maintained, however, throughout the spin ning districts. As the Amalgamated Asso nociation of Cotton Spinners receive regu larly weekly strike pay, there is little nuf fering among them. There is another side to the subject, not so bright--40,000 non union mill bands are idle through the same dispute, with no treasury to draw upon. and their condition is pitiable. 'Thousands of them, men, women and children, are now reduced almost to starvation. Their paltry household effects, and even parts of their clothing, have gone to pawnbrokers for money to buy food. The little money thus raised is soon spent. ltarvation stares all idle working people in the face. In many mill towns non-union mill hands parade the streets and solicit alms. The severity of the weather now prevailing adds to the distresse. Application was made yes terday to the magistrate of Oldham for 800 warrants against operatives in arrears for borough rates. The magistrate re fused, and told the bailiff to apply again when the strike was ended. In an Unsettled State. VALPAnAIn* , Dec. ',--The Herald's corres pondent at Buenos Ayres telegraphs that a political crisis is imminent. The senate, by a two-thirds vote, suspended from duty all judges who tried l'izarro on the charges of fraud. There is trouble in the cabinet over the action of the senate and the presi dent's prolonged indecifion on important questions. There is likely te be a lively dispute between Brazil and Argentine over the Montevlidea agents at Caetilhista. The government is buying arms, while in the same city the federalists are receiving rein forcements. The Goldbuts Not Alarmed. LoNDON, Dec, 9.-The fears at the stock exchange of an immediate collapse in silver values appear to have vanished. Silver se curities have strengthened during the last two days. rupee paper closing yesterday three-fourths better and to-day has again risen two-thirds. It is predicted that the failure of the International monetary con ference will have no effect upon the stock exchange. Most of the securities held here are gold obligations, and it is reasoned that the more silver falls in value the more people will invest in gold securities. Emin Pasha Reported Dead. LONDON, Dec. 9.-The Post says a report has been received in London from an Egyptian formerly with Emin, to the effect that Emin and his party were killed by Manyewas, in March, on the Ituri river. Capt. Lugard's last report from Stuplman represented Emin as blind and helpless, while the expedition had failed through many misfortunes. Mutiny and starvation decimated the ranks and smallpox was contracted. With an escort of Mauyewas he and nineteen of his followers traveled back to the coast. German Friends of Silver. BERLIN, Dec. 9.-In the reichestg to-day Mierbach, conservative, supported by many members of his party, introduced an inter pellation. demanding to know whether the federal government approved of the Ger man delegates to the Brussels conference not supporting the unanimous efforts of other delegates to combat the depression of silver. Liberal Revolt. LONDON, Dec. 9.-Sir Edwin Reed pub lishes a long letter displaying a revolt on the part of many liberals. He declares that he and other commoners will not be a party to hone rule giving Ireland control of any thing more than domestic affairs. TRANSMISSOURI TRAFFIC. Harmony in Freight, but Discord In Pas sensger, Rates. CnrcaGo, Dee. 9.-- The general freight agents of the transmissoiri roads, who have been in session in this city for several days, adjourned this evening after adopt ing an agreement for the protection of freight rates in their territory. It provides for the appointment of three rate com ruittees, one for Nebraska, one for Kanas and the third for Colorado-Utah trattlc, each to have charge of all rats matters in its territory; but all to work in harmony and hold quarterly meetings for the con aideration of questionrs requiring lerlsla tion. General mecetings may be called at any time. A jermanent secretary is to rbe clirsen to keep records. int every meeting will elect its own presiding oficer from amlong the members present, thuos savnr g the ahnrrv of the regular chairmani . The iheadrquarters of the new committees will be at Kansas City. While this simple egreement for theo preservation of freight rates has been made, passenger rates in the same territory are beconungr badly demornlhzed. 'lie Union 'raciie is accused of paying a com mission of $5 on every ticket sold over its line from the Missonri river to Cololado points. It insists that it was not thre orig inrl offender in inereasing conllulasions and competiltors had butter look to their own figaures before making charges. 'There is little prospect of an agreement.

WENI WITH A LUCKY MAN Susette Preferred the Man Who Broke the Bank to the Dealer. Though Poor, the Latter Longed for the Love of the Lady. The Italianse acked the Dealer and the Itallroad Graders itallied Around the Winner-A Melee. SPOKANE, Wash., Dec. 9.-A terrible riot occurred at Wenatchee last night. and for three hours the town was in control of a nnor, of frenzied graders and Italians. Wenatchee is a town about 100 miles went on the Great Northern road. The trouble was started by a drunken railroad man and a gambler. '1 he former was named Torn Guilland. lie worked on the road at differ out times during the year, coming to town to carouse every pay day. On these occa sions he stored with a woman known as Sasette. This woman, for a month past, had been living with Guisepie Vaco, a faro dealer, who is a sort of bhos among the Italians, of whom there are great numbers on the road. A week ago Guilland came to town, and after two days his money was all gone. Yesterday be was paid a small sam of money which was coming to him, and starting at a crap game, wound up in the evening by breaking a faro bank, being over $5,000 winner. Sasette heard the news and started for the place, saying she would go with the man who had luck. Vaeo stopped her, threatening to kill her. Guilland knocked him down and started off with the woman. Before they had gone a block Vaco and a dozen other Italians set upon them and a fieroe fight ensued. The screams of the woman and the shouts of Guiiland brought a gang of graders to the rescue. Thereupon Vaco summoned more Italians and a pitched battle ensued. T'he railway men gathered in a group, with Guilland and the woman in the center, and began to retreat slowly, firing as they went, and calling for hellp as they fell back. Others joined them and finally they made a stand. The Italians pressed them closely and it seemed for a time as though the railroad men would be wiped out, but eventually their surorior ermrament, most of them having revolvers. saved them. Many, however, were badly cut by knives and wounded by stones and other missiles thrown by the Italians. Both parties gradually broke up into small bands and scattered through the town, Gnilland and the woman having been spirited away to a place of safety. Fight ing between small parties continued in dif ferent parts of town until daylight. About a dozen men were injured, none of them fatally. A CRONIN SUSPECT. One of Them Dies Without Making a Confession. JOLIET, 'III., Dec. 9.--Martin J. Burke, one of the men sent to Joliet prison for life, for complicity in the noted murder of Dr. Cronin, of Chicago, died at the peni tentiary this evening of quick consumption. The long expected confession did not ma terialize, so far as known. Burke con tracted a severe cold while working in the cooper shop last summer and was trans ferred to lighter work. He steadily grew worse, however, and in September was placed in the hospital, suffering from the disease which carried him away. His de cline has been rapid and yesterday, after making an examination of the murn, Dr. Fredericks. prison surgeon, expressed the opinion that iurke could not live more than a week. Burke was conscious of his rapidly approaching end, and requested yesterday to see Father Daniel, the Cath olic priest who visits the prison. Fathier Daniel came this morning, and after not ing the condition of the man administered the last sacrament. The end came lather unexpectedlv this evening. Hu was sitting in a chair talking to a nurse about himself, and had just srid: "If I die, I want Forrest to comlr down and take my body to my folks," when his head fell forward, and after one of two piesus life was extinct. Forrest is the attorney who conducted Burke's defense and has since labored nssiduously with an i!apeal to the suprcme court. Prison oilicial say that never, to their knowledge, since his ii1s risonmsent, has Burke spoken one word 11i eigard to the Cronin murder. A BLUFFi (CAI.LEI). Made by a Young Man Who Was Broke.

Byrnoe Tells What the Po lioo Can and Can Not Accomplsh. Offers to Chow Parkhusrst Slane Th'ngs Near Ills Own Chrlrri-Opiniion to IlIn Npies. New YoRK,. Dec. 9.--'I lie fight between S·llprinte'rIi ellnt of Police lByrnes and IRev. Dr. l'arkblurt, president of the Society for the I'iippreseion of Vice, in growing more bitter. Byrnes came out last night in a lenrgthy reply to l'arkhurst's latest commu nication. In it he produces statistics to show that while there are houses of prosti tution'in New York, there is not another city In the world of its size so free from the evil. After tailklng at great length of vari ous methods for the suppression of this vice, lmyrne sayer: "Dr. i'arkhurst has lived in the world long enough to know how un charitable it is toward this class of sinners Sfellern women i; how little it has learned of the lesson the Master taught when they brought before him a woman seized in adultery. Let me ask Parkhurst how many of them he has given shelter, how many his society has taken from the street, where they were driven by the public sentiment he professes to represent? Theoret ically, there are two ways to deal with prostitution; one to soppress it, the other to license it. Practically there is only one way. Suppressed it never can be. Even Parkhurst will not claim that, though he insists that the police sLall do it. License it we will not. There remains only the middle course, compromise. That course is to thrnet the evil as far as possible out of sight; hide it from public view, where it cannot corrupt the morals of our growing youth. That is all the police can do, and they are doing it to the best of their ability. "Parkhurst may call it subterfuge, but I know it and every policeman knows by ex perience, that in proportion to the efforts made to suppress the evil along the only available path it increases in virulence, be cause the breaking up of houses of ill fame simply results in scattering the inmates through tenement and apartment houses. where they do infinitely more harm than before. "As to gambling houses. let me say that when teaching and preaching suncheds in making men good, then gambling will stop. Never in toe historyof our city was there as little gambling in public and as much in vrivate as to-day. Patrons now gamble at their clubs and in private houses, which the police cannot reach." In closing the superintendent says: "True charity begins at home. I shall be pre pared, when Dr. Parkhurst comes to me in proret spirit of Inquiry, to show him a well t odden ,ath that leads from the very door of his church, as it were, to a broths, hardly a gun shot away, upon which his 'shadows' might exploit themue.lves with advantage to the security and good repute of his con gregation, and with better success than they have attained in their present hunt. Such shadowing as the misconduct of Park hurst's agents and informers compelled me to do in the interests of morality has con vinced me that he has in his paid agents and spies as great a set of scoundrels as ever misled a reputable man into slander ing the fair name of the city which he makes his home." I'ItEACIIERt T/O P'OLICEMAN. Parkhurst Nays liyrnes s not a Moral In spiration. New Yoniu, Dec. 9.--The clash between Parkhurst and Superintendent of Police Iyrnes has worked 'teelf tonwn to an olen and decidedly wrathy debate. Dr. Park hurst gave out a caustic reply to Byrnee to night. In It hie says in part: "The gospel requires us to deal leniently with sinners. Bitnes deals leniently with sin, which is quite another matter. His business is to take iniquity and make it exeeoable in sub lie estimatton, which is exactly what he is not doinu. lie says he hias raided and closed 440 houses of ill-fame. Granted; and yet he knows there never has been a time during the past toen months when the social vice was practiced more tlagrantly than for the three weeks subsequent to the Novemblier election, He cannot have an Ieiertive department till the animating hbad at it is a moral inspiration to the torte. "Just try to conceive now of Itrnee as a moral Inspiration. He says, *Hide evil from public view, where it cannot corrupt the morals of the youth.' Why doesn't he hide it from public view? lio says he can show tUo a well-trodden pathi that leads fr.sn the very door of iiy church, its it were, to a brothel, hardly It gun shot away. You acknowledge then, do you. Mr. Ityrues, that there is a h othel near my church that you know of, and that young men iIn glat irnumb hers alr t locking to it? Ilow is that for a moral puo lpose? I loatihe that Ilrlr with unattorable conitemllpt, who, orccupying tuei position orr slelndi I authority that Ityrnies does, daLre ca onie urlt iand publcly confess that Ihe is ilerisllttlrigt, which is another way otf siay-sIg ho or auast!lonig, one of these hell holes. I deminsd of you. Mr. Ilyrnes, that youlr put your oilliial hand on that tiothel iland crrih it. For the Iord's sake. lyrnes, when you lquote don't eulo gize the gospel sir the suale vile breath with which you iuake that dalmning self-inorim inatilon.
