The president in conclusion says : "I am sure you will find every officer of the government having any public con nection with this matter desirous to co- operate with the creditors of the bank in all measures calculated to protect their interests, and to hold to proper account ability every person having been guilty of complicity with the failure."

Wales and • Woman Scorned Responsible for Giving It Publicity. London, June 11.-The fact that in his examination in the Cumming case, the prince of Wales was not asked whether he divulged the secret of the precis, while all other parties to the affair were questioned on that point, is taken as confirmation of the rumor that the secret did actually owe its publicity to the careless tongue of his royal highness. The story is that the prince confided it to Lady Brooks, who in turn revealed it to a friend of hers, who happened to have been scorned by Cumming, and who at once saw in the episode an op portunity for revenge. Several radical members of the com mons have decided to put a series of questions' to the government bearing upon the responsibility which the Tran by-Croft party incurred in concealing Sir William Gordon Cumming's offense, and the question of military discipline involved.

SOWING DRAGON'S TEETH RUSSIA BRINGING ABOUT HER OWN FINANCIAL RUIN. The Bankruptcy of the Empire Sure to Follow the Expulsion of the Jews—He—• Goldberger's Rude Experience. Berlin, June 11. —The Berlin Associ ated Press correspondent today had a conversation with Herr Goldberger, the well-known Jewish financier, who was recently expelled from Russia. He went from this city in the interest of a bank ing house with which he is connected, having been furnished with a special consular pass.HV the Russian consul general here. At St. Petersburg, M. Vishchnigradsky, the Russian minister of finance, and other persons of high standing showed the Berlin banker special attention. Bat this did not prevent the police of St. Petersburg from inscribing upon his pass the words; "The Jew, Goldberger, is here on toler ation and under police supervision," Herr Goldberger does not nnder stand Russian and thought it was some regular police annotation. He learned differently when he reached -Moscowv The. "prestaw" called upon him and told him he must leave at once. A hotel manager told him a few roubles would fix it all right, but Gold berger declined to pay blackmail and left at once. He did not care to estab lish a bank in a country where each po liceman had the power of levying black mail. Herr Goldberger described awful scenes of expulsion which he had wit nessed at Moscow during his two days' stay. Social standing and high position, he said, were 01 no avail. None of the accounts so far published tell the whole story of misery and persecution, which is simply indescribable. Contrary to the accepted version,Goldberger says the czar is well aware of the cruelties" prac ticed ; that he has always been a radical anti-Semite, and that his hatred of the Jews has increased since the memorable railway accident which happened upon a line built by the Jew Yon Polieskoff. Goldberger thinks Russia will not only suffer from commercial disasters sure to follow the expulsion of the Jews, disasters which Russia with her great resources might meet with impunity ; but that these measures have brought about a feeling of insecurity among Russian protestants and among numer ous foreigners residing in Russia, to whose enterprise most of the commercial undertakings owe their existence. No body knows whose turn is to come next, and no one cares to risk his money or work under the present state of barbaric rage against everything foreign or non orthodox, and the consequence will be that Russia, with all her agricultural and mineral resources will sooner or later be forced into the condition of ab solute bankruptcy.
