Tbay Ara Jointly Considering; a Plan for Currency Hefarin—Capital Ists Eager to Invest in tha New Hoods. By the Associated Press. Washington, Nov. 14. —The attention of the president was called today to tbe statement contained in certain news papers to the effect tbat there had been a disagreement between him and Mr. Carlisle in regard to the issue of bonds and other matters, and intimating that such disagreement might reault iv the secretary's retirement from tbe cabinet. The president emphatically denied the "entire batch of silly misstatements," and said: "Never since our association together has there been tbe Bligbteat unpleasant ness or difference concerning tbe affairs of the treasury department or any other matter. 1 have every reason to believe bis attachment to me is as sincere and great as mine is for him. I should be much pfll.cted if anything should cause him to tutertain the thought of giving up his position, where he ia doing so much for hia country. "We have agreed exactly us to the is aue of bonda, and there haa been no backwarduees on his part on that sub ject. 1 see it is said lam formulating a financial scheme. If such a scheme is presented, it will be tbe work of the secretary of the treasury, and I shell endorse and support it. "The trouble acems to be tbat thoao charged with tbe executive duties of the government do not appear willing at all timet! to take couneel of the news papers aud make public all tbev intend to do." CURRENCY REFORM. The President Working ou a Plan to Kubmlr. to Cougmxg. New York, Nov. 14 —It ie reported here that the president la considering the idea of submitting to the country a plan for cutrency reform. .Tie believes that the currency system ia inherently vicious; that it is responsible for finan cial ills which must recur IO long as it is maintained. Satisfied with tbia diag nosis, he will undoubtedly prescribe a remedy calculated to give tho finances pormauout health. Believing pooßibly tbat thia can be done only by supplanting tbe present system, the subject will be the dominant feature in bis message to congress in December. 1c ie said be will favor many of tbe suggestions made by the bankers' na tional convention at Baltimore in Sep tember. What is known aa tbe Balti more plan adopted at tbat convention appealed to tbe president as having fea tures of undoubted merit. He obtained a copy of the plan, and since then he has bean studying and working on it. Briefly stated the Baltimore plan pro vides for a guarauteo fund obtained by levying a email tax upon all of tbe banks. This fund is to be used to pay the notes of banks which become in solvent. Since it became whispered among financiers tbat the president was prepar ing to atldrces congress upon the cur rency system, so many suggestions have reached him that he thought it well to gather some expert opinion among bankers whom he could not personally conßult. The present visit of William F. Curtis to tbia city ia understood to be for the purpose of Bounding public opinion bore upon the general subject. While Mr. Curtia is in New York. Assistant Secre tary-Treasurer Conrad N. Jordan ie iv Wuahintton. He iv urging upon the preaident to recommend to congress the appointment of a currency commiaaion, oon-partiaan in character, and com posed oi representative men of all factions, which shall consider the cur rency question in its various beariuga and report a system of reform to con gress. THE NEW BOND ISSUE. Capitalist. Eager to Hcb.crlbi to the I.oun —Brlllab Inquiry. New York, Nov. 14—It is bolieved the laraeat subscribers to the now gov ernment loan will be Drexel, Morgan & Co., the United States Trttlt company, tha Union Tru3t company, J, & W. Se'.ig man. Brown Bros., Kubne, Locb & Co. and Ppeyer ft Co., some of whom will act as agents ol English and German (inai - ciera. John A. Stewart, president of the United Stateß Trußt company, eaid to day : "The circular ark ins for bids issued by Secretary Carlisle protects tbe goverc ment. The government will not have to pay a cent more than Z per cent for the money. In my opinion no subscription will bo received the maker of which can not pay lor bonds in gold uot previously withdrawn from the treasury." A leading hank president, speaking of the new loan, said today: "If the bankß are to pay for the bonda it will take all tbeir gold; while if gold is to be imported for tbe purpose, rstca of exchange will be reduced materially. The tr.ist companies probably have a great deal of gold in their vaults." London, Nov. 14 —The United States loan of $50.000,000 ia huuted after every where by financiers desirous of taking a portion of it. The stock market will he only too pleased tv take any amount, lbe Rothschilds have cabled tne Bel mont banking bouse to subscribe to the new loan promptly in their name. Order your suit early. H. A.

Washington, Nov. 14. —Tbe declara tions of Senators Stewart and PefTer render it somewhat uncertain whether tbe Populist senators or any of tbeir number will unite with tbe Republican eenafore for the purpoae of securing con trol of the senate after the 4th of March. Without thia assistance it will, accord ing to present appearance*, be impossi ble for the Republicans toregaiu control before 1597 or sftsr the next election. Giving them one of the senators to be elected in place of Senators Ransom and Jarvis of North Carolina, and not count ing Jones of Nevada as a Rapublican, they cannot hope for more than 43 Re publicans in the senate, and that ia two less than will be required for either or • ganization or tbe transaction of business. The question has also been raißed as to wbetner tbe Republican senators will really deeire to organize, and soma of the older and more experienced politi cians about Washington contend that they will not so desire when they come to look over the ground and weigh tbe various considerations involved. The principal reason for tbis view is the belief that the older aud more ex perienced Republican members will be averee to assuming a responaibility in tbe absence of the real power to transact business, which they would not, of course, have unless there were a major* ity of senators paired to act with them on questions of party policy, aa well as on organization. They cali attention to the fact tbat tbe bouse will be composed in a large measure of untried members, and it is possible that many of tho new men may not be disposed to commit tbe party to a legislative policy which might prove to be unwise, at least unavailing, in tbe face of the fact that the presiden tial chair will still he in the hands of the Democrats. "What, then," tbey ask, "is the sense of tbe Republicana aesuming the re sponsibility of power without being able to exercise it?" To do this they contend tbey must necessarily make some conceaaions to the Popnlista, who are liable to prove embarrassing. Continuing tbe argument on this line, tbey cay the fact that the Republicans have not the senate will prove a check upon the house, in case ono ia heeded, and enable the cooler members of that body to bold the mora radical in by simply holding up the impossibility of accomt-liahing anything iv tbat body and pointing out the unwißdom oi fruit less effort. On the other hand, tbe organization of thn senate would give tha Republi cans no advantage, except to be derived irom tbe acquisition of officeß aud the control of committee action. I! Utah elects Republican eeuatnra, and the sen atorial elections in other statee now go as tbe returns from the late election in dicate they will, they will Rive the Re publican party au absolute majority and thus definitely settle the question. Or if New Mexico and Arizona should elect Republican senators, assuming that there will be no change of the pro gramme on tbe part of tbe Democrats as to the policy of states at the short session, the effect would be tbe same. The two senators from either of theae proposed states would be sufficient to giTe the senate to the Republicana. whereas if the Democrats sbould secure senators from al! of them, they would still be short one of a majority. New York, Nov. 14 —A apodal to the Evening Post from Raleigh, N. C, says: Marion Butler, the president of the Na tional Farmers' alliance, who ie slated to succeed Senator Ransom in the United States senate after March 4. next, ie reported as having said he would vote with tbe Republicana in the organization of the next eenate. DINGEftUDi HIUUBINUBBS. Tbey Will tie Hob. .1 If Sent Back to China, San Francisco, Nov, 14, —The police have obtained evidence of the existence of a lawless am! strongly organized band of Cbinese highbinders, 3000 in number, residing in tbis city. The society ia not only an organized band of bluckmailers, murderers and thieves, but also has for its purpose the over throw of the present Tartar dy nasty. Through the Chinese consul ate, a diplomatic correspondence ia now being cairied on with tbe British gov ernment, to tha end that when Chinese highbinders arc deported from this city they will be turnetl over lo tbe Chinese government at lioug Kong. If this ia done it will mean certain death tv tbe highbinders, aa with such evidence as is now iv tbe hands of the police, tho Cbinese organized cutthroats will be beheaded without even so much as the lortn of a trial. ,M>:iN> AMI LAIiUES.

J. M. Nouges, counsel for respondent, Btnted counsel were agreed and that tbe only question tbey wished uettled was aa to n bother tho questions must be an swered or nut aud whether immunity was granted, Mr. Cook contended that the judge exceeded hie uutbority as he was Bitting in the capacity of a justice of the peace and could lino for not more than $100. He cited authorities on tbe point ot tbe court's power to compel a wunesß to answer questions that would tend to criminatu himself.

He cited authorities as to the power of tbe court to compel witnesses to answer questions.

Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 14.—The Star (Independent) and tbe Journal (Repub lican) continued today tbe publication of sensational articles charging the election of J. B. Bremmerman (Demo crat), for prosecuting attorney, and J. B. Keahler (Democrat), for county mar shal, has been stolen. To Mr. Bremmerman's reply that he could not insult the honor of his party by declining tbe office, and tbat the charges were general, the Star submits seven specific charges. Seven precincts are named in which the paper alleges a number of votes sufficient to change the result were deliberately transferred from the column occupied by Jamieaon, Republi can, to that of Bremmerman. Attention is called to the fact that for all other candidates except Sloan, Republican, for county marshal, tbe official vote tallies with tbe vote announced by pre cinte by the recorder of votes on elec tion night. It is pointed out as a remarkable fact that the official count changes Sloan's vote only by two pre cincts. The newspapers that are now taking np tbia tight make tbe charge that mem bers of a so-called political gang have stolen the offices of prosecutor aud mar shal, believing tbat this move might protect them irom arrest or imprison ment.

CHINA AND JAPAN The United States' Offer of Mediation Not Yet Accepted. JAPS ARE WIDE AWAKE. Tiiey Do Not Propose to Ed Fooled by a Heathen. Chinee Trick. A LACK OF INFORMATION. China Hail Propoaa DafinlSa Terms el Faaoe Bcfora Japan Will Call OIT tha Dsn or War. Br the Asioelated Freia. Washington, Not. 14. —It ia stated here in official circles that Japan has not yet accepted the invitation of the United Statea to submit the qnestion of peace with China to onr mediation. Whilst the statement is probably literally cor-, rect, there is reaaon to believe that Japan has requested, as preliminary to) action upon our invitation, that ahe be informed explicitly juat what terms China baa to propose aa a baaia for a treaty of peace. Up to thia time China haa not sub mitted any definite proposala, so thai the delay appeara to be rather on her part than of Japan. It could not fairly be expected that the Japanese would halt in their triumphant march, and perhaps afford their opponents a very potent opportunity to rally from their disorganized condition, unleesi Japan ii furnished witb some satisfactory sition by China that may be bind ids; beyond question upon tbe Utter. No' such satisfactory proposition haa yet been made by China, but on the con trary the Chinese tenders so far have been upon a basis tbat could not be accepted with safety and consistency by Japan. For instance, a Cbinese proposition was that Corea be evacuated by both Chineae and Japanese troops. Inas much aa the princioal canae of the war was Japan's contention that the entire Corean administrative and financial sys tems must be reformed on modern lines, and tbat Japan must undertake the task, a temporary ocenpation of that oountry, at leaet, by Japan waa a neces sary condition. And conditioning that tbe Japaneae troopa evacuate China im mediately would alao violate all prece dent, for it is customary in aueh caaaa for tbe victorious nation to remain in possession of the captured territory as ■ pledge nntil the payment of the war in* demnity. EUROPEAN INTERFERENCE. But disregarding theae puinta of difa ference, it is becoming more evident tbat the interference of European powers is a stumbling block in the way of a settlement of tbe war through tha mediation of the United Statee, nearly all having interests in the east which they regard as paramount to our own. An official who has given the subject much attention, ia of the opinion that Ruseia will never consent to anything; which looks like an indefinite ocenpa tion of Corea by Japan, unless she ia herself allowed to take possession of a portion of Corea for the eastern terminus of the Siberian railroad. France ia re ported to have demanded a coaling station on the island of Formosa, and Great Britain has reached out for tha island of Cbuaen. CAPTUEE OK TAMEN WAN. The Japanese minister, Mr. Kurino, has received tbe following cable dis-» patch irom Tokio: "Our army occupied Talisn Wan on the afternoon of the Bth mat., having destroyed the Chinese torpedoes, Onr fleet, transports and torpedo boata are safely anchored iv the bay. The torpe« do station, with equipments, charts ol nubmarine tcrpedoes, eight cannon and 10 telephone lines and the telegraph! 1 have been captured." ALL UNDER ARMS. Foreigner!
