Xov. 14— Currency expansion legislation In some form will be recommended for the action of Congress at Its coming session as the result of the resolutions of the currency committee of the American Banking Associa tion and the New York Chamber of Commerce, which have, been in session here for the laat three days. It 1b understood to-nis?ht. although no official announcement was made, that the committees to-day agreed substantially on the following propositions: The ♦stablishmont of a 5 r^r cent guarantee fund for th.:- redemption of the notes of the failed banks and for other purposes; The amount of general credit n--us to be kept on reserve to bo the same percentage as that of deposits, rind A limitation of all issues of currency by any bank to that of its capital stock. The imposition of a tax on the emergency notc-s was the most troublesome of all to settle. A vote was taken on the question yesterday. To-day this action was reconsidered and several other votes were taken. The final vote could not be ascertained to-night, but it Is eaid to have been in favor of a graduated tax of very limited range and email in amount. This vote, it is said, may not final ly dispose of the question and it may come up for consideration again to-morrow. During the debate to-day fnw of th« members thought that a graduated tax rangine from 2 to H per cent would meet all reasonable, requirements. The discussion disclosed the fact that the bank ers are anxious to have it known that their efforts to obtain the sanction of Congress to Issue additional currency in times of financial stress is not for the purpose of making money, but with a view to accommodating the public, and that as so 'n as the demand has ceased the emergency currency is to be redeemed and can celled. The committee finished he burden of its work to-day. All the principles which are to underlie the proposed plan of currency reforms were passed <.n to-day. r;nd the final work of putting them in shape and outlining the details for their practical application Into in the after noon was referred to a special committee, con sisting of A. B. Hepburn, president of the Chase National Bank of New York: James B. Forgan, president of the First National Bank of Chi cago, and John PerHn, president of the Ameri can National Bank of Indianapolis. These aro to b« assisted by Frank A Vanderllp, of the National City Bank of New York, and Charles A- Conant, of the Morton True*. Company of New York, representing the New York Chamber of Commerce. Chairman Fowler of the House Committee on Currency and Controller Ridgely were present at the sessions of the committees to-day, and it is said the principles determined on meet with their full approval. The action of the committee was paid to b« unenimous. The greater portion of to-day's session of the committees waa consumed in the consideration of the report of the sub-committee, consisting of Ifeeam Pbrgaa. of Chicago; Wexler, of New Orleans, and Vanderlip, of New York, to which was referred th» question of the amount of tax to be imposed on the issue of general credit emergency currency to be emitted by banks in times of financial stringency. Rome features of their report, which, it ls understood, included a graduated tax. were not entirely satisfactory to the bankers, and it was recommitted to the spe cial nub-committee for further consideration. Incidental to thie. also, was the establishment of an immediate guarantee fund to meet the obli gations of any bank which failed before th*j regular guarantee fund is available. There was a division of sentiment as to the amount of the graduated tax to be flx*vi on th* general credit Issues, eomn of the members favoring a tax ranging from 1 to 5 p*»r cent, according to the amount of notes emitted, and others expressing the opinion that the variation should be between only 2 and 3 p*r cent. All the rnem'r^rs express their satisfaction over what has been accomplished, and express the hope that It will meet with the approval of Congress SEATTLE CUT OFF.

Mahoning Division Firemen Firm in Demand for Increase. [Dy Telepraph to The Trlhune.] Cleveland. Nov. 14.— Without a dissenting vote up to midnight the Erie firemen employed on the Mahoning division, which includes Cleveland, are voting to instruct the board of adjustment to declare a strike if the company's officers refuse to grant a straight 20 per cent wage advance next Tuesday. Out of the 4.~0 firemen on the division 2">o hnd cast their votes at midnight, without one dis senting ballot. Tlie statenv nt waa made by one of the officers of Forest City Lodge that no dissenting vote was expected on the division, and only a few on the entire Erie system. As it takes Horn.- days for the men to cast their ballots, the total vote on the division will not be received until Thursday. Then it will be turned over to the local represent. 'Hive of tho national board of adjustment, which will m< et with John J. Hannahan. prand master, in New York Monday. On Tuesday, if there be any doubt of the correctness of the count hy J. C. Stuart, general manager of the Erie, the bal lots will be placed on the table for him to count. At tho same time, according to the instruc tions which are now being voted upon, the board will demand once more a 20 per cent wage ad vance, passing over the compromise 12 per cent advance which P. J. Underwood, president of the company, refused^ to grant last Monday. Help was promised last night by Brotherhood men on all roads East and West to which the Erie delivers and from which It receives cars. "This means that if a strike be finally declared. by the firemen's adjustment board In New York next Tuesday, it will be the biggest strike in the hipto i American railroads," said an officer of the I st City Lodge. NO STRIKE, SAYS STONE. Head of Locomotive Engineers Thinks Trainmen Will Not Go Out. I By Telegraph to The Tribune. ] Cleveland, Nov. 14.- "I have do idea that there will be a strike In any part of the country grow ing out of the agitation among the various rail road employes for increased wages," said War ren B. Stone, grand chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, to-night upon his return from New York. "While the Erie firemen are taking a vote on the proposition to strike, if higher wages arc not paid, 1 <!•> not believe that they will go out. It is too serious a matter. "I feel that the men know that higher wages are coming to them, and the company's officials talk reasonably— so much fo that l believe that tho men are sure that the advance will come. There are so many things to be settled upon all the roads and the agitation is so widespread that the companies cannot settle all the questions at once, and men must all have patience. "While In New York I aided the Lackawanaa engineers to settle their dispute, but all other work done by me there was simply In an ad visory capacity to our committees. The state ment that the New York Central had agreed to let engineers run motor cars on the same condi tions as steam engines for six mouth- was incor rect, like much of tM New York papers 1 stuff. The agreement simply referred to the firemen." STRIKE TALK ENDING. Ifannahan Sans Trouble Is Unlikely —General Adjustment. The strike sentiment among the representa tives of the railroad employes who are at the Broadway Central Hotel continued to fizzle out yesterday. and the' Idea that there will be no strike of the Brie firemen, especially in view of the explanation of President Underwood's letter to Qrand Chief Hannahan, of the Bremen; gained ground. This was emphasized by the departure C'oatlnued on Mcood i>««*. PLATTS TO SEPARATE. BOTH SIGX AGREEMEXT. Decide to Live Apart, but Den;/ That Divorce Grounds Exist. After scarcely more than two year? of wedded, life, Thomas C. Platt, the aged Senntor from New York, and his wife have agreed to sepa rate. In the formal statement, coming aft^r months of reports of much unpleasantness and hints of scandals Involving both, the cause for separation is given simply as '•unhappy differ ences." At the same time both emphatically deny that there !s any truth in the rumors that there has been anything in the conduct of either upon which cause for divorce co lid lie. Mrs. Platt is at Tioa;;i Lodge, in Highland Mills, and Senator Platt. overcome by the fee bleness of age and his unhappy marital ex perience, ls staying at his apartments at the Gotham. So feeble is he that he retired !ast night soon after S o'clock, and no one was al lowed to see him. Besides the formal announc ment of the separation, made through Mrs. Plan's counsel, no member of the Platt family would make ;?ny comment on the agreement.
