Comment About His Trip to

Private Financial Business
Galled Him Thither.
The President a Victim of His Own
Object Lesson.
He Ie Said to Hm Loit Heavily ln spec
ulation—HU Finances Badly
Shaken Up, But He Looks
Healthy.
By the Associated Press.
New York, Nov. 16. —A special to
the Mail and Kxpress from Washington,
saya: There ia as much mystery in re
gard to the president's Dying trip to
New York today as there waa yesterday,
but it is pretty well understood that it
waa for tbe settlement of hia personal
financial matters, which have been
shaken up owing to the object lesson
Cleveland himself gave the country ; it
baa proven a boomerang. Daring the
lMt few days there have been rumors
here in financial circles relating to a
little coterie which have been favored
with tips. Early in the week, ,Don ]
M. Dickinson arrived in town, and aa he
alwaye cornea when something ie about
to happen, tbe cry was started to look
out. Don departed for New York aoon
after tbe president. It was whispered
among the knowing ones today that a
lot of railroad stock waß about to be
unloaded, and tbe president's signature
waa necessary to tbe documents. To
send tbem by mail or witbdraw tbem
for tbe length of time necessary to aend
them to Washington would excite sus
picion, and hence Cleveland is said to
; have gone to New York. A congress -
< man ie authority for the statement that
the president lost $100,006 in Chicago
! gas, and hie visit yesterday waa to
j transfer property to cover tbe loss.
BACK TO WASHINGTON.
| The President Again at Hia Poet—A
Crnnk Calls to Sco Him.
Washington, Nov. 16.—Cleveland and
! Lamont arrived from New York at 9
| o'clock this morning. The president
j was driven at once to the White House,
i The president has not looked in better
' health since his first inauguration. Hia
step was firm and elastic. His appear
. arjee waa unusually cheerful,
i The president ot once retired to his
private office with Secretary Thurber
and all visitors were excluder!. The re
ticent* of the employees of v*be A hiiv
House, with regard to the president's
New York visit, even since his return,
has led to all sorts of rnmoreaß to Cleve
land's health; among them tbat his
jaw ia diseased and tbat be went there
for a surgical operation, but his appear
ance indicates nothing of tbe kind.
Persons in a position to know cay the
President went to New York to consult
a party of friends and, incidentally,
look after some private matters. Lamont
authorizes an emphatic denial of. tbe
report that he and the president went
there in. connection with a real estate
speculation in which they are engaged,
declaring they are not engaged in any.
A woman claiming relationship to
Queen Victoria called at the White
House this morning and asked to see
the president, saying she could tell her
bn°iness to no one else. "I am a niece
of Queen Victoria," she said, "but I
dislike to cay anything about it, and
will not unless compelled to."
Being told she could not see the pres
ident she went away, eaying ahe would
call again.
ECKELS' SCHEME.
National Bauk Currency tv Replace All
Other Kinds.
Washington, Nov. 16.—Mr. Eckels,
comptroller'of the currency, expects to
have his report finished by the end of
the week. It is expected that among
other things he will recommend asystem
Iby which national bank currency may
; take the place of all others in existence,
the purpose being to allow national
banks to deposit, additional to bonds,
gold and silver and treasury notes and
I certificates, and to issue bank notes to
the par value of all deposits in the treas
ury.

Washington, Nov. 16. —In reply to a

nia, asking if he should discharge the
Chinese held by him for deportation,

ing for the attorney-general, authorized

Washington, Nov. 15. —The annual
report ot Tillman, register ol the treas
ury, Bhows that October 1, 1892, the
value of the registered bonds which

THIS CRUISER COLUMBIA.
Windy Weather Interferes With flsr
Ofllalal Trial Trip.
Boston, Nov. 16. —The Columbia
started on her trial trip early thia morn
ing in a heavy and increasing wind.
She attained a speed of 2J'<.,' knots and
might have increased it bespite the un
favorable wind bad ehe not gone two
miles off her course, owing to the fact
that the- Keareage, acting aa a mark,
drifted the aame distance leeward. The
trial waa then declared off. It is stated
now that the maximum epeed published
of the initial trial yesterday waa incor
rect, and that the Columbia then made
an average of 24) s knots for a distance
ol seven knots, instead of 22.37.
At 10:45:02':; Captain Sargent gave
the engineer the bell for full speed, and
tbe Columbia sped past the Dolphin, the
starting point, line a flash, tho three
enginea making Kill, 138 and 133 revolu
tion, respectively, and the Bhip trem
bled under the mighty strain and
seemed to bouud through the sea.
About three miles beyond the Dolphin
the tug Iwana marked the course and
past this tbe Columbia dashed at
10:51:28. The Bhip'a speed now was
22% knote, and she was gathering Bpeed
at every bound almost, and she steered
almost straight for the Kearsarge ahead.
The Kearsarge waß within a couple of
miles when Captain Sargent discovered
she had lost ber position in the
course. He then found that the
Columbia waa aome two miles off
the straight course, owing to having
headed directly for the Kearsarge. When
Cramp heard it he communicated the
fact to the naval board and the trial was
promptly declared off. The Keareanre
hsd been unable to hold her anchorage
owing to the strong wind and dragged a
couple miles to the leeward.
THE NEW SOUTHS KICK.
SOUTHERN INDUSTRIES DEMAND

Warning Served on tiie V/ays add Menus
Committee Not to Place on the
Free I.lst Iron, Coal
and Lumber.
Washington, Nov. 16.—The "New
South" sounded a warning to the ways
and means committee today. Hepre
senlatives of the manufacturing inter
ests of Alabama and Tennessee made an
informal argument before the Demo
cratic members of the committea. As
the delegation present was also Demo
cratic in politics the conference was
amicable until near the cloee, when the
chief spokesman of tbe southerners
broadly intimated that if iron ore, coal,
lumber, rice and Bngar will all be placed
Hat, the Democrats of thai
sonth might, cease to kiss the hand thai
smites tbem. F. G. Bush, president of
the Mobile and Birmingham railtoad v
and also of tiie Clifton Iron company,
protested against the injustice of plftai
ing iron ore or coal on the free list,
"In case of free ore, where would you
be distressed by it and where would it
come in competition with you?" queried
Wilson.
"Wo would be cut out of any Bale of
iron in the eastern states. The effect
would be to restrict our market to the
south, ln the east we would have to
meet the low compet-tion of Cuban and
Spanish ore.
"If this committee, as reported," con
tinued Bush, "ie .to put lumber, rice,
sugar, coal and iron ore on the free list,
then the south might as well give up.
It will be a deathblow to southern pros
perity.
"We are Democrats from principle,"
continued Bush, "and do not expect to
suffer in the house of our friends. If we
do, the natural question to ask is, How
long will we continue to kiss the hand
that smites us ?"
It ie said that Senator White of Lou
isiana will oppose vigorously a tax on
sugar and the abolition of the sugar
bounty. He asserts that the tariff poli
cy which is being formulated will dis
rupt the Democratic party.

Marseilles, Nov. 16. —At midnight
an attempt was made to blow up the
official residence of General Matbelin,
commander of the Fiiteenth armycorpa.
The house is surrounded by a high wall
into which niches for sentry boxeß are
built, though owing to the late quiet
condition of affairs no sentries occupied
them. Cases of dynamite were placed
in these niches, also in the hallway of
the house and one in the orderlies'
room, adjoining the apartments occu
nied by the general. About midnight
the last mentioned bomb exploded with
fearful force, shattering the walls,
breßfcing every pane of glasa in
the house and the adjoining
houses, and badly damaging a build
ing occupied by a girls' school,
and the octroi or food tax buildings,
opposite the general's residence. In
fact the forco waa so great that it was
felt a mile away. The supposition is
that the dynamiters expected the first
concussion to set off all the other cases.
Had this occurred there would have
been great destruction of property and
heavy loss of life. As it was nobody waß
hurt. The outrage is supposed to be the
work of street-car atrikera, whose atrike
was defeated by the aid of soldierß. A
rigid investigation into the affair is in
progress.
The police have arrested 40 anarchists,
including 10 foreignera.
REICHSTAG OPENED.
The Kaiser's Speech to the Body Loudly

Berlin, Nov. 16. —Emperor William
formally opened the Reichstag today.
Iv hie opening address the emperor
thanked the bod/ for complying with
biß demand at assembling in July for
the passage of bills for the increase of
the army effective, and declared tbat
the evidences of warm sympathy he
find lately received in various parte of
the empire gave evidence of the great
satisfaction of tbe nation that the army
itad obtained an organization which
guarantees the protection of the father
land, and for tha preservation of peace.
M would be the chief duty of the pres
ent reichstag to provide the in
creased means made necessary by
the increase oi the army and to fix in
definitely the proportions of revenue to
be contributed by the various states of
the empire. Billa to this end would be
submitted ; also bills relative to the tax
ation of tobacco and wine and the levy
ing of imperial stamps. He said com
mercial treaties bad been concluded
with Spain, Koumania and Servia. It
had been found necessary to raise the
Russian import duties to an unusual de
gree, but it was hoped tbe impending
negotiations with Russia would lead to
the abrogation of these measures. He
said there had been no cbange in the
relations with foreign governments, and
closed with tbe hope tbat tbe bieasinga
of peace would continue to abide with
the nation. The speech was warmly
cheered.

DYING OUT.
The Chief Caahter Dlaratased for Exceed

the Great Financial Institu
tion Not Shaken.
London, Nov. 16.—The Bank ot Eng
land officials continue to maintain
silence regarding the rumors of bad
financiering on its part. It is stated on
good authority, however, that the
bank's connection with bad financier
ing is practically limited to its trans
action in the South American and Mex
ican company, which has been venti
lated in the courts, and tho fact that
there have been irregularities confined
to allowing favored customers to sub
stitute less desirab'o securities for those
upon which money was originally lent.
New Yokk, Nov. 16.—The reports cir
culated from London regarding alarm
ing rumors affecting tbe management of
tbe Bank of England are not credited
in Wall street. Large houses with
European connections are satisfied from
tbeir advices that the rumors are un
founded.
A cable to the Evening Post from
London says the Bank of England
Bcandal is dying out. No formal con
tradiction has been issuod. but it is
understood the loss is trifling. The
chief cashier exceeded his functions by
permitting the substitution of securities
pledged without tho authority of his
superiors. He waß dismissed laet week.
There has been no fraud, only irregular
ities. One director is known to be
financially weak, but the rumor of his
retirement is contradicted. Feeling is
generally reassuring.
London, Nov. 16.—The Daily Tele
graph in its financial article this morn
ing says: It is stated that the total lors
of the Bank of England through Chief
Cashier Mays' advances on unsound se
curities will not exceed $100,(H!0. There
is no leaeon to expect that there will be
any important reduction in the next
dividend.
The Timeß in its financial columns
emphasizes yesterday's denial and Buys
the character of the rumor is now well
understood, and that the bears undoubt
edly hay« bfen purchasing. "We think,
however, that the bank would be well
advised to hreak Kb customary reticence
and make known how small is the basis
on which the rumor rests."
ACCIDENTAL SHOUTING.
A Chilean Killed by a Han T.uio Obispo

San Luis Obispo, Nov. 16. —An un

charge of a gun in the hands of Francois
Guillemen, on the ranch of the latter,

gle ensued and the gun was accidentally

for aid to tbe nearest neighbor, about a
quarter of a mile distant. Several per

KnvuliiilnnUta.
By tho Associated Pre**
Washington, Nov. 16,—The close s*
cresy maintained by the state depart
ment on the El.twniian affair makes it
difficult to judge haw much primed as a
fact is true, and how much speculation.
No word has been given by authority up
to this time as to what the actual in
structions to Wiilis are. It is sometimes
possible to corroborate so much of a
surmise as happens to be accurate
ly made. Readers of the Associ
ated Presß dispatches can reasonably
rely ou tho accuracy of the statement
that Willis is instructed to use all his
powers of perßuaßion to induce the pro
visional government to consent to retire
in favor of the queen. He will try to
induce the queen to grant, amnesty to all
the revolutionists, and will seek to in
duce the members of the present gov
ernment to accept office under the queen,
but will not employ force to secure the
■ attainment of his purpose, without fur
ther instructions from this government.
THIS HIWAIIAN MILITIA.
It is learned that the forces of the
provisional government in Hawaii,
though small, are well organized and
disciplined and most of them are sharp
shooters. It is said that 2000 picked '
men have been provided with fire arms •
at Honolulu and enrolled in drilled
companies. They have been training
for two months past as a safeguard
against any royalist uprising in tbe
islands. These companies are made up
of white men largely. Eighteen rapid
firing i:mia are included in the mili'.ia
equipment, the arms being Winchester
ritles, This force would be superior to
whur, the men-of-war at Honolulu could
put ashore. But no one Beeins to be
lieve any resistance will be made should
the marines actually ho landed.
NEWS EAGKKLY AWAKED.
The possibility oi Minister Willis not
being able to carry out the progiamine
of peaceable reistoiation of tbe queen
and the amalgamation of the provisional
government with her administration,
makes all interested in the government
, ill at ease. Consequently news from
Hawaii ie awaited with more earnest
ness by the administration than the
general public.
DOLE WILL NOT CAPITULATE.
William H. Armstrong of Hampton,
i Va., formerly attorney general of the
Hawaiian islands, is in the city. His
parents were missionaries to Polynesia,
and bis mother died in Honolulu only a
year ago. Armstrong waß a member of
Kalakaua's cabinet. He expressed the
opinion that President Dole will not
capitulate for Minister Willis, unless
the latter has authority to absolutely
guarantee safety to the life and property
of the provisional government and ite
followers against the natives and royal
ists.
BBNATOU DOLPII's OriNIONS.
Upon being asked by an Associated
Tress reporter tor bis opinion upon the
i attitude of the prestut administration
toward Hawaii, Senator Dolph said he
did not wish to be quoted us criticising
the administration, because of his mem
bership of the committee on foreign
relations. He called attention to the
fact that he fully outlined hia position
upon the subject in a Bpeech in the sen
ate toward the close of the fifty
second congress. Boon after the
receipt of the news of the
revolution in Hawaii, in which he
advocated annexation and said he
would again at tho earliest opportunity
after the assembling of congress in De
cember, again take occasion to express
hiß vioWB upon the question.
"The present government of Hawaii,"
he continued, "is au existing govern
ment, recognized by foreign powers, and
it would appear as though an attempt
to overthrow it would be an act of hos
tility on the part of the administration
towurdß a friendly government unexam
pled in our history and unwarranted by
the constitution. If the policy of the
administration should give the control
ot these islands to a European power, it
would be scarcely less injurious to our
| commercial interests than the action of
President Cleveland eight years ago in
withdrawing from the senate the Nica
ragua canal treaty."
Dolph is of the opinion that the
Hawaiian question will demand consid
erable attention from congress at the
approaching session, and thinks it will
come ud in the shape of resolutions of
Inquiry. Congres could, he saya, pass
an act directing the president to open
negotiations for annexation.
