Special to the Scranton Tribune. Youngstown, , O., Nov. j9. Harry Bonnell, a prominent Iron manufac turer and member of the Mahoning Valley Iron company, has Just returned from a three months' trip through PJng land. "When the Wilson bill was passed, the manufacturers thought England more greatly elated," said Mr. Bonnell, "because they saw at once it would open the ports of this country to their products. The result of the elec tions Nov. 6 greatly chagrined them, as they know as well there as we do here that the Republican party believes In the principle of protection to home Industries against the world. Under the Influence of the Wilson bill, great preparations are being made by the manufacturers there to flood this coun try with their goods. At Bradford I was Informed the firm of Sir Titus Salt, Sons & Co., of Saltalre, have orders to run several months and refuse to book more, anticipating higher prices. "There Is a strong feeling In England In favor of bimetallism. The governor of the Bank of England, Mr. Grenfell, is strongly in favor of It and has so expressed himself In public. He Is a nephew of Lord Salisbury and admits that In studying the question from the standpoint of American economists, he was converted to It. A .tour through the manufacturing districts of England will convince any one that Democratic success means prosperity to England ai d the reverse to the United States, ana ttat. with the HepuUlcans in power, we In every way help our own people In this country and not those abroad."

Stone WIjr.Try to Push Ills j Measure xwotigh. Special to the Scranton Tribune. " Washington, Nov.' 19. Representative W. A. Stone, of Pennsylvania, is de termined to push his bill for the further restriction of Immigration, and hopes to be able to accomplish something. Colonel Stone says that the idea, of a further restriction of Immigration has been growing since congress adjourned. He thinks that It Is becoming more pop ular and the Importance of it was being more fully realized than ever before. He will, however, have the same dif ficulty to contend with In the coming session that he has had in the past, and that is, the opposition of Chairman Gelssenhalner, of the House Committee on Immigration. That gentleman wa3 badly defeated for re-election and In consequence is not likely to be any more favorably disposed to immigration leg islation than he has been. As long as the Interests of certain steamships com panies are affected by proposed legisla tion, Mr.Selssenhalner will, it is feared, be opposed to that legislation. CARLISLE AND WILSON.

Mr. Wilson is named because It is thought that the president wishes to take care of him. THAT GOLD WITHDRAWAL. The Bank Presidents of New York Are In clined to l et Koch Bank Take Its Own Course of Action. By the United Press. New York, Nov. 19. There hus been considerable missionary work among the bank presidents today regarding the subscriptions to the bond issues. There were many informal conferences of two and three different presidents. The result of these conferences brings to light the disinclination of the banks to distribute the loss of gold which will come from the subscriptions pro rata among the associated banks of New York, according to the percentage of each bank's holding of gold. This was the method taken in February. The banks now appear to prefer to let each individual bank take its own course of action regarding th sur render of lis gold. The calls for gold from out of town correspondents are quite numerous, and the withdrawal's of gold from the sub-treasury by New York banks are made on orders from correspondents in the Interior. There was withdrawn today nearly two million in gold from the sub-treasury and the amount withdrawn from the sub-treasuries throughout the coun try with which to purchase bonds is es timated at $4,000,000 since last Thurs day. The net loss of gold to thp gov ernment is not so great, as Rome gold has been paid In during that period. PACT OR FICTION', WHICH .' If Fact, the Message 'tells of Another TruRcdyof the Sea.

The religious ceremony over the body of the dead emperor was probably the most magnificent ceremony of modern times, In Its external uspects far excell ing In h- atity and grandeur the memor ial buiiul service of Alexander III. The music was devlne and the performance of the liturgy sublime in the extrme. The surroundings were subdued in color, but they were of a quiet char acter, which greatly enhanced the splendor of the whole fcene. The cream of the royalty and nobility of the empire assisted at the service and princes of the blood, prelates of the orthodox church, noblemen, representa tives of foreign sovereigns and princes, foreign diplomats and other distin guished persons Joined in the devotions.

Harrisburg, Nov. 19.

Pitzel, the man Insured, but the body of some unknown person whose corpse he obtained from a medical friend. The policeauthorities are somewhat Inclined to disbelieve Holmes' story in that connection and It is stated that they feel almost positive that Pitzel was murdered. Philadelphia, Nov. 19. The grand Jury this afternoon indicted Herman Mudgett, alias II. H. Holmes, who is under arrest in Boston; Jeptha D. Howe, the St. Louis attorney, and Car rie A.

Mrs. Carrie Pitzel, wife of the, man whose life was Insured for $10,000, was found in Burlington, Vt., and came to this city today with a Plnkerton dt-teetlve, where she Is held on the charge of conspiracy after the fact. When she arrived at police head quarters, she realized for the first tlma that she was under suspicion, her trip to Boston having ostensibly been made for the purpose of meeting Holmes. She fuinted dead away, but later recovered her composure and told the officers what she knew of the case. To the best of her knowledge she be lieves that he husband is alive, but she Is not certain. Neither does she know the whereabouts of three children other than the two who are with her. All she knows Is that Holmes has re peatedly told her that she would meet Pitzel and the children In different places, only to be disappointed when she went there. It Is the suspicious things that make the police tend tu !the theory that Holmes has done away w ith Pitzel and that he has been deceiving the wife In the matter all along. The police Intimate' that perhaps Holmes and Pitzel were Involved In business troubles to such a degree that Pitzel was murdered by Holmes so as to get a dangerous man out of the way.
