CAItI.ISI.K's EXPLANATION,
When he had concluded reading the
bill, Mr. Carlisle explained it in detail.
i!e pointed out tbe various sections of
the present law proposed to be repealed.
Concerning tha conditions imposed
upon etate banks by bis bill, he said -
certain features had been added to meet
criticisms made ot the plan as outlined
in his annual report.
Mr. neked whether it was not
desirable for the government to assume
the risk of redeeming notes rattier thau
leave v io the banks.
Mr. Carlisle answered in the negative.
He said ho did not believe in govern
ment responsibility further than iv pro
viding the most ample safeguards.
The secretary showed ttie profits of
naiiunai banks under tne proposed plau,
ue compared witb their profits under
tho present lew. He showed that ad
ditional prolits and inducements would
incline national banks to take out circu
lation.
In the course cf the discussion .Mr.
Carlisle eaid he did not think any im
mediate retirement ol tbo United Siatea
treasury notes was practicable. The
secretary spoke of Comptroller Eckels'
plan. Without wishing to criticise it
in) thought ite fatal defect was in re
quiring national banks to take out two
uilferent kinds of circulating notes.
The shipment of gold was discussed at
some longtb, Mr. Carlisle said tne losb
ol gold whs very heavy after the passage
of the sherman law. The outflow of our
gold hud brought on financial dlairust
nnd bad threatened panic. But there
had been no real danger. Those panics
w»re largely the result of sentiment and
public feeling inetead of well base!
lenrp.
during a general discussion between
Mr. Carlisle and members of the com
mittee, the secretary referred to the
issuing of bonds, lie said as much as
be regretted it, ho saw no way ol pre
venting the further i-eueof bonds as
Ion,: aB the ptescut system remained.

Mr. Homer ol Baliiui ore then address

He spoke ol the requisite that a
Lank note be seemed. The propose 1
plan undertook to provids this requisite,
without, the necessity of a government
bond. Uniformity was another requisite
of enfe banking. It was also secured by
the proposed 'plan, no that the system
wi.uld bo truly national, uniform in all
states, instead ol varying in each ot the
4 1 states.

and everything moveable ua deck —as
washed overboard.
Sunday afternoon they were running
before the wind, when a heavy aea came
over her stern, burying the tug ao tbat
only the pilot house was cat of tbe
water. This see sprung the heavy
doors to the house and completely
wrecked the handsome private apart
ments of Mr. Spreckels by deluging the
inside with water. Alter the tug
righted itself she was hove round to lea
and steamed ahead under a clow hell.
Another monster sea went over her
bows, and, striking the forward house,
Smashed the lights and eprung the
heavy B'.eet walls so that tire "rater
closet frame, two inches from the wall,
was torn from ita fat-totiinje. At times
the pilot house had a foot of water over
its ll ior, aud the lireidabilk was no
where iv eight at tnie time, having
parted company with ber for the second
time the uii;ht previous. The tirst tine
they let go the ship was ou Friday,
when the hawser had to be cut irom tha

the steamship O eg >n from San Fran

T ursdav morning she left San Fran

was drawing only nine feet forward and
111 feet aft. As the vessel ia in the

Sunday morning. But at li o'clock the
barometer began to fall. Soon a tre

l'ohlman stood out to sea, but tbe ga c
was co heavy that tie could make but
little headway. Tne gale kept increas
ing in violence until about 2 o'clock
Sunday morn'ng, when it waa .almost a
hurricane. Ttie Oregon could not face
it and began drifting towards the ahore.
So light was the ahip iorward that she
could not he made to face the atotm,
but would constantly pay oil,
Tt7e vessel was co light that the pipes
which supply the condenser with water
did not work well and the engines could
not be worked effectively. The steamer
kept slowly drifting toward shore dcs
pi'a every effort that could be made,
until the lighthouse elation at Cape

more than Bix miles away.
All day Sunday tbe Oregon made a

elect Bndd arrived here from Stockton
today and was in cousultation with bia
friends in reference to the attempt of
tbe Republicans to prevent his
being declared governor. Said Mr.
Bndd ; "I believe that 1 have heen
elected governor of thie state. If I
have not been elected I do not vtant to
be governor. But 1 shall take
good care that I shall not be
cheated out of what tho vot
ers have given me. It waa my
intention to make a tour of the institu

hy actual experience and observation
what reforms were needed and wtiere
extravagance could be checked. But
tine attempt to prevent my inaugur
ation baa necessarily changed ruy
plans. I will now be obliged to
remain here until it is definitely kuown
what Mr. Cornwall intends to do. There
is no doubt in my mind that I will be
inaugurated governor. Jl can safely
trust that to the people of the etate —

Bkrkki.ky, Dae. 11.—The hazing ol
! Clautle 0. Campbell, eon of Rev. J. VV.
I Campbell of Loa Angeles, will likely
I cause much trouble. The students who
I composed tbe hosting party are daily
growing more anxious. The facta tbat
Campbell did not reveal football secrete
and that be had withdrawn Irom college
before tl.e Thanksgiving day game,
make thoir conduct much less excus
able.
The committee will report the result
of tbe investigation to the faculty and
begin at once to consider what shall be
done with the guilty parties. Prof.
Bacon, who is chairman ol the com
mittee was seen in regard to the affair.
He eaid :
"There in nothing particularly new
in the mutter. We have been at work
all day und ns far aa the boy ia con
cerned our labors are completed. We
will now see what can be donu with tbe
hazers, but I am not at liberty to inti
mate any ol our intentioue."
From the result of the inveatigation,
co far the general student opinion seems
to be that the hazers will he dropped
from the roll at the end of the present
eemester and requested not to return to
the university.
Young Campbell is by far the most
unconcerned person connected with the
Rtl'air. When asked what lie thougl.t
about the inquiry, ho replied : "Oh, 1
don't know anything at all about it.
Father has not told me anything, except
to pack my trunk- and get home ac soon
as possible, so I gueßS I am in for it."
Bbrkklev, Oal., Dec. 11.—Claude C,
Campbell, the hazed ex-student of the

Angeles tonight witb his father,
Itev. J, W. Campbell. Before hie

cerned in the hazing, len were re
leased on $100 bail. Two are still hunt
ing bail in charge of a constableut a late
hour tonight. After the civil suits are
disposed of tbe faculty will denl with

rtlmrtalltiin.
Dknvick, Dac. 11.—Two notable
speeches on bimetallism were delivered
at tbe banquet of tbo Denver Manufac
turers'exchange tonight.
David Holmes ot Burnley, Kogland,
chairman of the parliamentary commit
tee of the trades' union congress of the
United Kingdom, representing 1,250,000
wage earners, speaking to tho toaat, Bi
metallism and Wage Earners, eaid:
" Thinking meai account for tbe pres
ent trado depression by the appreciation
of gold and the consequent demonetiza
tion of silver in IbTKund since. If ail
ver ia reßtored to ite former position it
will revive trade and commerce the
world over. I'ublic opinion iv England
baa recontly grown rapidly on '
the subject, and textile workers and
otbeißsre co-opernting with the Bimet
allic league. The recant experiment
of the British government with the fiuai; '
clal and currency qties-'lion iv India is a
tlat failure, and the Indian government
is at its wits' end to raise noceeaary
revenue. Bimetallism will be an im
portant factor at 'he next British gen
eral election ISOS. iwid will be a tea'
question in Lancashire and other con
atittienciea for parliamentary candi
dates."
Hon. Wbarton Barter of Philadel
phia, flunking on Bimetallism anil
Manufactures, said:
"Tbe proieaiors of political science in
Great Britain, men in the front rank in
Kurope und Aanerica, favor bimetallism ;
the opposition comes from money lend
ers. The demoralization oi silver hi c
contracted the world's money almost
oue-balf end appreciated gold to the
great advantage of the creditor class arm
the damago aud rutin of tho debtor clasf.
The propoeed plan of bank currency set
forth in President Cleveland's mesenge
should be opposed by every citizeu who
bus the welfare of the people nt hear.
Bimetallism must be restored by inde
pendent action by America, nnd cau he
whenever ttie pen pile ure determined lo
bave financial as well as industrial In
dependence ; to abandon British go d
monometallism a? ihey have done Brit
ish free trade: whenever they know thu
dltf.)rence between smi American policy
amf an alien policy."
lit' au.-gested tbat America admit sil
ver fcrom American uunoa to coinage
upon the payment of h, eeigninrnge at)
sorbing three-fourths of the difference
between tha London price arid the trude
value, and that fjreign ailver to beau
mitten for coinage at a seigniorage ab
sorbing all the difference between the
London price und coinago value.
■'The rvoad to American proapority,"
he eaid, ''is bimetallism nnd protection. 1
A true protective nyscem will protect I
American labor, extend American com
merce and at the sumo, time preclude
trusts, combinations and monopolies."
