London, Deo. CO. It was learned that
the United States crnlser Montgomery's
vi'lt to Liberia was apparently tho io
suit of ovcrtnros made to Washington
by tli.it republic. Though tho British
government was said to bo in Ignoranca
of tlio purposoof the Moutgomory'n mis
sion, thu ostablithmciit ot n coaling sta
tion in Liberia by tho United States
was regarded ns scarcely juobablc, as, it
Is iis-.(rted, no Liberiuu port has any fa
cilities for coaling, all of tlioiu being
open and sur .ioutid.
Thu Associated Press roprcsuitativo
learned, however, that a tar inoro im
portant steji was uudor consideration.
It consisted in a joint request of tho
tho United States and Ureat Briton
upon France to define thn boundary bo.
ttvceu tho territory sho clalmuund thai
elalmod by Liberia. This stop was not
yet decided upon, but Great Britain
only awaited tlio United Statos nssoul
to becomo u party to such it request.
It was alleged that France, for many
yeurs, has been encroaching on Liberia
and it was only by a strenuous protest
of tho United States that she wns pro
vented hum appropriating u largo slioo
of Liberia in lHVi.
According to tho Hon. Arthur Pon
sonby, managing director of tho Liberia
rubber syndicate, which recently guar
anteed tlio interest of Liberia's publio
debt, tho Montgomery's visit was proba
bly prompted by a desiro to ascertain
tho extent of French activity. Mr. Pon
sonby suld In part:
"Bishop Haruoll, whilo lu Monrovia
this your, strougly urged the govern
ment to interest tlio United Statos in
preserving tlio boundaries, with tlio re
salt that Liberia appointed a mission to
Washington. I believe it has already
mndo representation, and prcsumo tho
cominnuder of tlio Montgomery luvosti
guted botli this uud the posnibllltv of a
coaling station."
Wabhinoton, Deo. 30. As to tho
real objects of tho Montgomery's criilse,
It was beliovcd that tho navy depart
ment luvl Us eyo upon a jiossible coaling
station on tlio wost coast. Before uud
during tlio civil war tho United States
had no Ices than threu coaling stations
on that coast. Thoy wero practically
abandoned whou tho Wost African sta
tion was dropped from tlio list, bat the

From a Prominent Physician About
the Treatment of Kidney
Dr. Leopold says that nlno-tontbs
of tlio hutnnn ailments can bo traced
directly to a disordered condition of
the kidnoys. The kidneys are tha
filters of the ontlre system; if they
becomo clogged or In any way do
not perform tbolr natural funotloDB,
tho clement reaching the kidnoys
through somo other channel Immed
iately returns to that channel which
U Unnatural mid causes trouble. A
slight backache, nervousness and
restlessness should not bo left to con
tinue; a mild kidney remedy should
bo nt once administered, and tho
best combination ot remedies Is
found In Morrow'rt Kld-no-olds.
I'lioy net gently, though quickly, ro
moving nil sediment from tlio kid
neys nud urlno and set tlio system in
proper working condition.
Mrs. Mnry l-orst, 001 South High
st,, Akron, O., cays: "I havo noth
ing but words of prnlso for Morrow's
Kld-no-olds becanso thoy rellovo me
of pain across the mnnll of my-back,
which had troubled me for two yoars.
I was also nllllcted with nervousness
and rheumatism. I tried several
kinds of medicines which were re
commended to mo, but none did me
ns much good ns MorrowVKId-ne-olds.
Thoy relieved mo In a few
days. I shall continue to take them
until i urn entirely cured."

Ho correct report of fsllnreS in 1800 can be
mado until the year has closud. A collapse ot
speculation In copuer stocks has swelled the
eggrojate at Boston alone Over S13,003,UOO
within a fow days, and might yet add to tho
record. The failures thus far reported are
fower In number than In any jear sinco 181,
anil smaller In amount ot coinmerrtal liabili
ties than in any year since 1831. Tha ag-gre.
gate ot defaulted liabilities ll I12O.10O.0OJ, but
nearly two thirds of the banking liabilities
were added within a fow days, the aggregato
reaching about IJO.0OJ.O0O. Tho commercial
liabilities have been about 8(U,aX),IXX), though
exact returns for n few recent failures are not
yet obtainable. Na other year except 1891,
with defaultid liabilities of 13t,IU,DJj, and
IS), with I'lnti'UOJ, have failures been as
small sinco the agency cummenced quarterly
returns in 1373. Tho average of liabilities per
faUuro la less than 13,5.10, tho smallest fn any
year of the 23, a gratifying evldeace that com

Iho week has been exciting only at Boston,
