YOIJNGSTOVVX, O., Jan. 27.?It Is estimate
to-day that at least one hundred
people living between East Lewlston
and Columbiana will lose sums ranging
from 35o0 to $20,000 each through the
failure of the Ohio Lumber and Mining
Company, which went under about a
month ago, carrying witn 11 tne j^naierly
bank, at Columbiana. This company,
composed of members of theMennonites,
a strange religious sect, was incorporated
elch* vears ago under the laws of
unio. with a capital ctoeK of 550,0-a, t?
company bought 24.000 acres of forest
land in Virginia with the idea of making
Ing and selling railroad ties, but things
went from toad to worse until tin- crash
came, and it came out that thin was the
strain that broke the Easterly bank
last month.
The receivers of the b.tnk have quietly
taken Judgments for $10,065 against the
Ohio Lumber and Mining Company,
and iiaW WST1Wexecutions against the
company and the Indorsers, some of
whom are among the principal ntockholders
of the company. The latter, It
now appears, has made application to
the secretary of state for receivers.

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Jun. 27.?It can
bo stated on authority which cannot
be doubted, thut the Republican leaders
have decided upon a radical change
of policy In connection with the proposed
continuation of political agitation
throughout the coming four years, and
that In Us stead tho verdict of the
American people In the recent presidential
election and the merits of 1hc
incoming administration will 6tand
j alone.
Immediately following the election,
many leading Republicans throughout
| the country urged upon National
I Chairman Ilanna and the members of
' his committee the Importance and ab|
solute necessity for continuing the political
agitation pursued during the
campaign Just closed. At first the inertii
bers of tiie committee were fully In accord
with this Idea, but gradually and
after mature deliberation, the majority
of the national committee including
! the chairman, have .experienced a
; change of heart. It Is stated that this
I change of Xront has only been reached
, after much discussion between Chair|
Hanna and the members of the naI
tlonal committee. Within the past two
or three weeks there Clave been many
| menwcrc ui mc vuii(iiii>?<. imv ... ?
irencf with Chairman Hunnu, and ii in
known that this question has been ear!
nestiy discussed on such occasions.
Chairman Hanna,although one of the
very lirst to announce himself in favor
of continuing the political agitationdurlng
the coming four years, has
clearly demonstrated his change of
I views by frankly stating to a reprej
scntutlve of the Associated Press:
It Is believed that a potent factor
j entering into the discussion :ind final
decision on this question is the belief
which Is nppoffutly daily growing on
ait side*, tfisf actwe political worlc an
I such a scale as was mapped out by the
Republican leaders some time ago, IS
| considered safe to say that the opinion
of Mr. Ilnnna in this connection, reflects
the views of the President-elect
I and the party leaders.
j That the decision In this matter has
but very recently been reached there
can be no doubt, for within not to exceed
two or three weeks, the national
1 Republican headquarters at WashlngI
ton has been established with General
! William Osborne, a cousin of Major
j McKinlev, in charge. These headquarters
were established in accordance
| with the original ideas of Chairman
Hanna nnd the Republican lenders, of
I conducting a literary and press bureau
for the dissemination of vast quantities
of political literature during the next
four years, it is now stated on excel ]
lent authority that the original plans
i for the work assigned to th" Washington
headquarters will bo largely cur|
tailed, and that while the office may
possibly be maintained for si short
| tini". there Is a strong probability that
within a few months., und not to exceed
a year, the headquarters at the
capitol will be entirely abandoned.
In this connection it may be stated
that General Osborne was at Canton
I to-day and held a conference with the
President-elect and Chairman Hanna.
at which questions along these lines
were doubtless fully canvassed.

CHICAGO. Jan. 27.-DetaIls of the Inauguration
gown of Mrs. McKlnley
were llnally decided to-day. The material
for the gown has been selected,

of silver and white, the combination
producing a sort of gray color. It
will be lined with pale blue satin.
The goivn Is to be made rather plain.
The corsage will have a Huffy flchu of

be made high with soft laces, yet it
will be made high, with soft laces, yet
it will have the decollette effect, because
of the d'Alencon flchu. Th??
sleeves will be long and finished with
a full frill of lace.

have several panels of handsome brocade.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 27,-The national
board of trade at its meeting to-dayadopted
the report of the committee on
banking laws. It was the opinion of
the committee that tfiere should be established
a consistent anil deliberative!)*
planned financial system. The plan presented
was briefly as follows:
First, that gold coin shall remain the
standard money: second that steps
should be taken to retire all United
States notes In such a way as not to disturb
business relations; that national
banks -should be allowed to issue currency
to the par value of the bonds and
the tax on circulation be reduced, and
that banks be allowed to issue currency
baaed on asset", under such national supervision
and restriction as will make it
safe, elastic and redeemable In gold at
banks of issue and at the city of New
Ytirk. Third, that such banks of issue
with a capital of J2ft,0?0 or more be authorized
to be established in towns and
villages of less than 3,000 population.
The committee on the subject of a
monetary commission made :i report in
which Congress Is asked to create a commission
to consist of eleven persons to be
appointed by the President, two of whom
shall be selected from the senate committer
on. finance and two from th* house
banking and currency committee. Of
the other seven members two shall be
bankers of recognized experience and
ability; two agriculturists of prominence,
two merchants or manufacturers of

and laws relating thereto. On or before
January l, ias#S they nhuii make a eonciae
and exact report of their deliberations
t-? rli.- Congress tojvther with a
proper bill designed to cajry their recommendations
Into effect.
In case Congress, for any reason falls
to authorize the appointment of this
commission,' the board declared its approval
of the alternative plan of the Indianapolis
convention t appoint such a
commission itself. The committee to
which was referred the subjects of "A
monetary unit" and "international coin,"
made a report favoring the change of the
coins of the United States, of Great Urltain
and of Germarfy, flo as to correspond
to the common unit ??f Prance. Spain and
other European countries which contain
twenty-five grains of gold nine-tenths
line, equal in vjtlue to the French livefranc
piece, the passage of th?* bill now
before Congress for an International coin
was recommended. The passage of the
Torrey bankruptcy bill and the establishment
of a department of Commerce
were also favored.
The following resolution was adopted
in regard to the Nicaraguan canal:
"Resolved, That the national board of
trade reiterates its deep conviction that
the construction of the Nlcaraguan canal
is of the highest importance t<? the commercial
Interests; thai such a waterway
will stimulate and encourage commerce
both between ports of our country remote
from each other and foreign counn
i and will afford Incalculable advantage
to the government in the event of a
foreign war."

foreign countries was adopted without

to the adoption of the conference report
on the ground that It would separate
families. Husbands might be admirable
and wives excluded or vice
vers j.
In reply to a question, Mr. Bartholdt
said he thought the bill would exclude
one-third of our present immigration.
Mr. W. A. Stone. (R4p.. Penna.), said
the house was confronted with the alternative
of accepting the agreement
of the conferees, or of having no immigrant
bill passed at this session. Ho
sent to the clerk's desk and had read
somo telegrams addressed to Senator
Lodge, copies of which appeared in an
Interview with Senator Lodge printed
He quoted some statistics to show
that last year but one hundred and
forty-six Immigrants of the class of
tvhifh we* nn> iivou.l would havo been
excluded by this bill. Jt was the Importation
of those from Italy, Hungary
and other countries of southern Europe,
a large percentage *?f whom would if.*
excluded by this bill, which was canning
the glut In the ocmmon labor market.
Two hundred and twenty thousand
of the JGO.OOl i-nmlgrants who
came in last year, he said, remained in
the three states of Massachusetts, New
York and Pennsylvania. We had been
b-plslatlng for years In the Interest uf
higher wages for labor: now we should
do something to prevent forelgu paup.vr
labor from corning here to enjoy
conditions we created for the UeutiU..v>
our people.
Mr. Grosvenor, nteu.. Ohio). opposed
certain features o? the report and said
he did not subscribe to the belief that
if the house rejected the report it could
not perfect and pa*s at this session
such a bill as It desired, lie said he
would refuse to vote for a bill which
would permit :i man to nbandon his
wife and yet bring in his pauper and
Illiterate relatives.
Mr. Hepburn, (Hep., Iowa), closed the
debate jo support uf the report. When
he declared that hundreds of thousands
of American laborers were today
walking the streets of the great
cities because they had been crowded
nut by the Incoming stream of aliens,
the public galleries of the house fairly
shook with acclaim. At 4:1? p. m., according
to the arrangement, the vote
was taken. Much interest was manifested
in the vote. The report was
adopted 131-118. Til on ai ?a.i i?. in., cne

A long discussion followed on the

Mr. Proctor, (Rep., Vt.), argued that
the laiv fdiould be made permanent for
the attendance of the cadets at inaugurals.
Mr. Gray. (Dem.. Del.), opposed the

Chandler, derisively.
"Yob, we have the crown of thorns

that he would be glad to sec ostentatious
inaugurals give way to the simplicity
of Jefferson's lime.
"Why not haw th?? President rld?*

asked Mr. (fray, sarcastic illy.
"Yes, on a wrttt car. or on horsebaoU."
priivoded Mr. Allen.
Mr. Stewart. (Pop.. New), come In at

Mr. dray, as a proposition to

'WASHINGTON, D. C. ..Jan. 27.?A!
crisis In Ihe debate on the Nicaragua canal
bill was reached In the senate late today.
It brought out an energetic statement
from Senator Sherman In which he
foreshadowed a new treaty by which the
United States oould build the canal without
the intermediation of a private concision.
The senator declared that thlif
governmental execution of the project
was the only feasible one, and that all
private efforts in that direction had
! proved failures.
Answering Mr. Morgan's recent charge
that England Inspired opposition to
American control of the canal, Mr. Sherman
asserted that this was a "bugaboo"
wholly without foundation. He added
a handsome tribute to England and her
institutions. Mr. Vilas followed with a
motion to recommit the canal bill to the
! committee on foreign relations, n step
which Air. Morgan characterized as a?n
I insult. The motion was changed so ns to
I make the recommittal to the special o>mmittee,
of which Mr. Morgan is chairman.
The senate adjourned before a
vote was taken, and the Vilas motion to
, recommit Is pending.
