WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.?The mone? tary commission w?s given a .hearing I..day by the House committee on bank? ing a>nd currency on the commission's bill proposing a comprehensive revision if the currency. Ex-Senator Edmunds, if Vermont, chairman ?>f the commis? sion, headed lh? delegation, and with him were ex-Sceretary of the Treasury Fairchild. or New York: J. W. Fries. North Carolina, representing the gold Democratic sentiment of the South; T. J. (Bush. Alabama., and Judge R. S. Faylor, Indiana, representing 'the m1d lit-.Wiesi. Seerelary Gage was also !n it tendance, accompanied by the solic? itor of the Treasury. Tire hearing at? tracted much Interest, a number Of the members of the iHouse. accompanied by indies, being present. IMr. GJimunds was 'the first speaker. Ho said that the fundamental principle ivbJch the eommlsslorn had felt was to !>?? considered in establishing a stable jurrency was. first, to know what the standard value in thiis country is.and s ?!.. i- this there were many di? rer- amon r financial author 'ieved. and he was one ?vaa impossible 'to have 'andard of valuj. If he question is, what ?1 ? T*? experience i Imunds said, was ' was the one sub ;ne to which all _ad?.Iy adjust them1 .i will be the same ..ction closes as it was " ..ened. The commission felt -i a thing as a double standard .ever existed in 'the world through .oral operations. There had been ioubVe standards established by law. :>ut never in fact. When it came to a aatural standard there could be but <ne. By law. the United States had a l. ublie standard'?a- silver coin and a sold coin?established on the theory bat they could be maintained at an -xa.ot equality. ry Mr. Edmunds- then referred^Mr the experiences, of the great jia??hs of the ivorld, ail showing.jhe said, that-a sin rle standard_me~-int stability and safety, ivhlfcr-"legsi attempts at double stand ST?s meant disaster and panic. From bis universal experience. 'Mr. 'Edmunds *aid. 'he and bis associates had come ?o the conclusion that the first principle in which to base a currency was to lave one standard: that gold is the ?est standard because it is 'the most ?table or all standards- of value, subject to the least fluctuation from year to rear andsfrom century to century. Mr. Edmunds then took up the propo? sition for a retirement of United States notes, explaining and urging this on rhe lines of the commission's report. Te eh sed with a strong appeal for eaYly lotion. As Mr. Edmunds was to be engaged n 'the Supreme Court tomorrow be isked that tihe e\i.mmi.t.tee propound luestions today. This made the discus ;ion general. Representative Cox (Dem >crat), of Tennessee, propounded a se? ries of questions intended to bring out chat the effect of the bill would be to convert all debts, public and private, into gold obligations. Mr. Edmunds answered that it would convert every government obligation, except a few of minor form, into gold obligations and, stated broadly, the effect would be to make all United 'States obligations pay? able in gold. IBut as to private Obliga? tions between citizens Mr. Edmunds answered emphatically in the negative. Chairman Walker asked if the bill was designed to change the legal tender quality of the standard silver dollar.. Mr, (Edmunds answered that it was not. The only purpose was to give the silver dollar a distinct reference to one fixed standard, without naming a ratio. Mr. Walker suggested the question of expediency in carrying so large a ques? tion before the 'House of 'Representa? tives, with 356 members ready for months of debate. Was it desirable, he asked, to invite such a conflict on many provisions which are a re-enactment of the present law? Mr. Edmunds replied that It depended on the degree of doubt which the bill cleared up. But on the general question of practical expedien? cy, be said, the commission bad report? ed what it deemed to be essential and right to a proper adjustment of tihe cur? rency, and it desired to stick to that right thing, despite questions of expedi? ency. This brought a round of ap? plause, the first of the day, in which some of the members of the committee joined. Representr-tive "Newlands (silverlte), of Nevada,discussed with Mr. Edmunds the effect of the bill in eomtraiting the currency. IMr. Edmunds did not believe contraction would occur or that bank reserves would be inj-uriously affected by having the supply of greenbacks limited and in part displaced by the de neand of gild. (Mr. Newlands specified fire limiitct quantity of gold in this eoun'try to which Mr. Edmunds replied that the metal flowed to the point It was most needed and followed a law like that of gravitatifai. ?Pursuing his- questions, Mr. Newlands asked if the world had a sfneiency of gold. "Not a sufficiency of gold or of vir- ! tue," answered Mr. Edmunds, "and that is why we are struggling for both. It was this thatled to the rush for the Klondike." Ex-Secretary Fairchild next spoke on ?the ha'Plcing features of the bill. He prefaced this, however, by saying that monetary standards were no more sub? ject to governmental control than the tides and winds. It was a natural and economic operation between Individuals, <Sn which ef-ch sought the best. As to backing', !Mr. Fairchiid said; it was 'Useful to consider how Intelligent private individuals would conduct banking, without the aid of law, and from that Judge what the government can do. As to the bank note, there was no essential need of the government be? ing a factor. The desire of the banking feature of the commission's bill was to -facilitate ?the natural operations of banking and exchange, by adding Che government's aid toward: rapidity, certainty and safe? ty of those exchanges. Mr. -Bush, of Annteton, Ala., a mem? ber of, the monetary commission, was next heard. He said It was not to be to the credilt of any party in power .to check this movement for currency re? form, or to fall to embrace the oppor? tunity to execute It. There was same who were so 'bound up in the tariff that ?they wished to convince tihe country ?that the tariff would accomplish every? thing. iBut the tariff would not cure the vital evils of the currency. It was quite important for members or Con? gress to meet -these evils as to furnish battleships and cruisers as a prepara? tion tor emergency. At the close of Mr. 'Bush's statement The commlttteo adjourned until tomor? row when 'the hearing will be resumed. . TERSE TELEGRAMS.

(From Cassier's Monthly.) The most ancient method of making ice is practiced in India. Holes are made in the ground, dry straw is put at the bottom of these, and on it, at the close of the day, are placed pans of wa? ter, which are left until the next morn? ing, when the ice tiiat is found within the? pans is collected. This in'.l.ustry is carried on only in districts where the ground is d'iy~ and', will readily absorb the vapor given off from the water in the pans. The freezing, of course, is due to the greaf amount of heat ab? sorbed' by the vapor in passing fr-j ii its liquid to its gaseous form. Another process was practiced in the kluys of ancient Home, when the weal? thy are said to have had their wines cooled by having the bottles placed- in water into which saltpeter was thrown, the bottles being the while r. tab.d. 'Dr. Collen, in 177t">, dis. oveied that the evaporation of water could lie facilitated by the removall of the pressure of the atmosphere, and that by doing this wa? ter could', be frozen. Nairn, in 1777, dis? covered that sulphuric acid would ab? sorb the vapor- of water If placed in a second vessel separate fiom that con? taining the water, but connected with it. This discovery he put to use in 1S10 by eionsti uetiiig an- apparatus to ab? sorb the- vapor of the water that it was dcsir-id to cool or freeze. This appara? tus greatly facilitated the freezing op? erations of a vacuum freezing machine. Ja ob Perkins was the-father of what is now known as the compression sys? tem, having imvented the first machine of the 'kind in 1834. and, as these ma? chines, improved, are at the present Uay j more in use than any other, a descrip? tion of Perkins' patent may be of inter? est. His apparatus consisted of an In? sulated vessel, lm which was inclosed a second vessel containing ether-; a vapar pump, a worm and', wormtub, a tube be? tween the second vessel afid the pump, another between the pump and' the worm, a third between the worm and the bottom of the ether vessel, and the necessary valves. As afterward constructed, the appara? tus was made up of a jaekeuia pan, within which was the water to be cool? ed-; an Insulated box, in which was plac? ed the pan; a pump to extraet the va _po.r.ft3iDv_the' Jacket; a worm in which the vapor "was- condensed after it left the pump; a wormtoil-_eontain 1 ng cold water to coil the worm, dft&Jur means ei the latter the vapor within fir; TUWL. pipes connteeting the top of the pan jacket to the pump, the pump with the upi>er end of the worm, and the lower end of the worm with the under side of the pan jacket. The refrigeiating agent used with this apparatus was one deriv ei3 from the- destructive distillation of caoutchouc. James Harrkon improved upon Jacob Perkins' apparatus in 1856, anei it has been further improved by many others since. HAS A DOG ? SOUL? An Old Seat Captain's Query In Vers?. , Love Is Not Mean. Here is a story which illustrates in an in? teresting manner the fashion in which dogs often work their way Into tho hearts of people who begin by excluding tbem. It is told by a correspondent in Detroit: j "When I was a hoy, I lived in a town not many miles from Boston and became tho possessor of a black Better. My father in his early years had been a sea captain, and, like most sea captains, was very proud of his kitchen garden. When tho subject of a dog was broached, he always put bis foot down very hard and said that he would not have a dog tearing up his garden. Somehow or other his objec? tions were overruled, and I got the dog, and he did play havoc in the garden. But, strange to say, my father became very much attached to the dog, and they soon became the best of friends. Every Sunday they went to walk together with one of my father's friends, and the dog grew to know when Sunday came, and after din? ner would race up and down and keep running out to see when my father's friend would come. When they started, he was off like the wind. My father and the dog were very much in sympathy in many ways. After my father died I found the verses which I inclose in his pcokot book. I have kept them ever sinco, and never read them without thinking of the pleasant times we hod together." Tho verses inclosed with this letter are I by Pearl Rivers and include these stanzas: Is there for you no "other side," No home beyond death's chilly tido Arid heavy fog Where meekness ?nd fidelity Will meet reward although you be Only it dog 1 " He has no soul!" How know you that T What have we now that had not Mat Save idle speech ? If from the Bible I oan read Him soulless, then I own no creed The prcaoherB pleach. Who, by the way, can tell whence tho following extract comes? "And if any creature whom thou lovest sulfereth death and depaxteth from thee, though the soul beloved be little and mean, a creature not made in the likeness of men, know that in the eyes of lovo t hero is nothing little -nor poor. O little soul, thou art mighty if a child of God love thee) Yea, poor and simple soul, thou art possessed of great richest Bettor la thy portion than tho portion of kings whom the curse of the oppressed puraueth, for, as love is strong to sedeero and to advance a soul, so la hatred strong to torment and to detain.
