noig, askod whether it war not true thai
the $100,000,000 borrowed to maintain
redemption had in reality boon usod to
pay thecurront oxponses of the govern
meat.
''There is nothing in this billon that
•abject," responded Mr, Soringer.
Mr. Springor gave notice that at the
proper time he would oiler sundry
amendments looking to the perfection
of the bill, among them one permitting
the deposit of cnrrencv certificates issued
under tbe act of 1872, $354,000,000 of
which was outstanding.
Mr. Dingley, Republican of Maine,
charged Mr. Springer with inconsistency
in not supporting a bill which contained
a provision for the repeal of tbe 10 per
oent tax on the state onnkn, a measure
which he bad earneatly opposed lese
than six months ago. Mr. Springer in
sisted he did oppose tbe repeal of tho
tax on state banes as a separate meas
ure, but when made a part of the gen
eral financial reform he cnneidered it
safe, although ho was frank to say he
would prefer dimply national bank cir
culation.
THE OPPOSITION MCASt'RSS.
Mr. Walker, Republican of Massachu
setts, whc was in ohargo of ths opposi
tion to the measure, then took the floor.
He began with a statement of the es- j
senee of the Baltimore plan. The be
ginning and the end of that plan, he
said, was to give to national banks pow
or to withdraw their United States j
bends from the treasury and issno cir
culating notea on their assets up to 50
per cent. It afforded not a rhadow ol
relief and did net deserve a momsnt't,
consideration. Again, the bill pre
sented by the secretary of tha treas
ury was an amazing scheme. The
bill bad not a feature that could be en
acted exoept after remodeling, without
•adangaring the financial intereata of
tha country. Mr, Carlisle bad drawn
the bill over night. He deacribed the
peril of the preaent condition of things
in the banking world ; the dangers tbat
threatened, Yet the committee on
banking and currency bad dawdled its
time until thia nndigested scheme of
the secretary of the treasury had been
thrown into the hopper, when, after
a few hearings it had been brought into
the house without a single change. Mr.
Walker spoke of hia own bill and its
superiority over the Carlisle bill. He
expressed tbe hope that the bill would
.be passed in the place of the Carlisle
.bill.
"Tbat would be done if you hsd the
aenrage of year oonvictions," continued
he, addressing the Democratic side,
"but failing in that Dhope yon will re
commit tbe Carlisle bill as I feel yon
surely will, when you know its char
acter."
AN AXALOOY IN FRANCE.
While contrasting hit bill with Mr.
Carlisle's, he dwelt npon the advantages
of divorcing trade from the government;
of allowing banka to proceed under tbe
laws of trade, not the laws of commerce.
A bank and ita enstomara were mutually
dependent. A bank could pay option
ally in gold and ailver nndar his bill.
But the laws of trade, the necessities of
the cases and the need of protecting the
currency would determine. The bank
of Francs furnished an analogy. That
bank would pay in silver if silver would
do as well »a gold. If the purposes for
which tbe money waa to be used re
quired gold, gold wonld he paid in any
quantity. The lawa of congrer-iscould be
defied , tbe lawt of trade never.
While describing tbe manner in whioh
his bill would redeem and retire the
legal tender, Mr. Tracey of New York
interrupted him to ask if bit bill would
retire the Sherman notes.
"Yes. sir," replied Mr. Wstlker, "read
my bill and you will find all the detaila
worked out. I have not been working on
this bill six years for nothing."
"Nor am I," be added, "the most stu
pid man in the world. [Laughter.] I
have been laboring singla banded until
fifteen months ago, when I delivered my
Chicago speech. That rrmsad the coun
try somewhat, and it has been rousing
»ver since." [Laughter.]
WHAT THE BILL WILL DO.
Mr. Walker's elaboration of the terms
of hia bill attracted the cloaeat attention |
and the members crowded about him,
taxing bim with numerous questions
whioh he met and parrtied. Hia bill, he
declared, wonld bring tbe country back
to the old Demoeratio doctrines of Jaok-
Bon and Benton. The banka which, if
it were in opsratiou, wonld hold $50.
--000,000 in gold and f80.000.000 in sil
ver.
IT IS BORE DEATH,
Speaking of the onerous work placed
npon the secretary on the treasury by a
neeeaaity of keeping np the gold reserve
in time of financial depreaaion, Mr.
Walker created a laugh.
"Manning died in ollice," aaid he,
"Windoru died in office. I aay to you
tbat any man who runs the treasury de
partment nnder the exiating conditions 1
for four years and does not die, ho has
dome hia duty." I
In conclusion Mr. Walker, while de
precating the affects of the Carlisle bill,
aaid he had no doubt that in presenting
it tbe secretary had no othar than tbe i
highest patriotic motive of serving his
country. He apoke two houra and was
applauded by many Democrats aa well
aa Republicans. 1
OPPOSED TO NATIONAL RAKES. '
Mr. Hali, Democrat of Missouri, also '
• member o>f the committee on banking |
and onrrenoy, who followed Mr. Walker, | i
said it mnat be distinctly understood by <
membera tbat tbe Walker hill was not I
nnder discussion and when they came to c
vote they must vote either for the Car
lisle bill or a continuation of the present !
ayatem. Mr. liall contended that the '
Carliale bill waa oppoaed by the national !
banks because they preferred the Haiti- ,
more plan. Why? Because in the !
Baltimore plan the government titnod .
behind the notes issued and in the Car- ! '
liele bill the banks themeelves were | \
responaible for their notes. Mr. Hall
instated every bank official summoned j !
beiore the committee had been '
forced to admit when oarnered, | i
that tha enrrenoy issued under
lb* Carlisle bill would be entirely safe. 1
They bad oppoaad the bill on aoconut of
the fifth section, which made the banks i
solely responaible for their issuer. He
also repudiated the statement that this i
bill had bi.-en prepared in haste. He .
•aid it hud been prepared after 15 j
niotilbs of investigation by the banking
and currency committee and 20 mouth*. ,
of suffering by the treasury.
At the conclusion of Mr. Hail's apesoh
tho committee arose.
Mr. Henderson of North Carolina re- f
ported the postoffico appropriation bill. !,
end then, at 5:15 p.m., tho house nd- j
journsd.
THE CANAL BILL.
Sh.tmtor Tnrple Joint. Ont Didcoltlos 1
to ll* Ov«rooiii.. s
Washington, Deo. 18.—The Nicaragua 1
canal bill was taken up in the senate at *
2 o'clock. J
Turpie devoted some time to tbe fc
consideration of the questions of the v
concessions and forfoitirei possible in
the event oi the non-completion oi the
cannl within 10 years from 188". The
provisions regarding these matters were
j exceedingly strict. The concession
j given in 1887 would be absolutely for
feited in 1807. What title did the com
pany have in the canal route? There
was nothing to mortgage und nothing to
sell. The concessions gave no title and
no sort of property rights to the com
pany.
| Taking tip the question of the physical
{ construction of the various portions of
the canal the senator went on to point
out the ureat dillicultiea that would
have to be overcome and to argue that
the estimated cost of the minor canals
forming part of tbe whole system were
too low and in ona case—that of tbe
canal between Lakes Managua and
Nicaragua —the estimate was mere guess
work.
Turning then to tbe meeting of termi
nal points of the proposed canal, the
senator insisted that the estimates
affecting the work at those places were
much too small. The engineers aaid
$2,500,000 would be required to make
ths harbor at (ireytown on tha Atlantic,
i whereas he had heard a naval officer
i soy $10,000,000 would be required.
| As to Hrito , the Pacific terminus, the
place was not even a roadstead ; it was
simply a stretch of sand on the ocean.
Regarding the statement that the con
struction of the canal wonld give work
ito deserving people, the senator quotes
j from a report that Jamaica negroes were
; the only orios that conld do the work
nnder the climatic conditions existing
there. The whole thing appeared tv
Mr Tnrpie as having every indication
of being a gorgeous bubble.
Without waiting the conolueion of the
sposch, tbe senate, at 4:15 p. m., went
into executive session, and at 4 :28 p.m.
adjourned.
ON A COIN BASIS.
Bland, or Missouri, Haa a Substitute ror
Oarll nle'i Kill.
Washington, Dec. 18—Representative
Bland, of Missouri, will move to strike
out all after tbe enacting clauee in the
Carlisle currency bill, now before tbe
house of representatives, and substitute
a measure he bas prepared for a cur
rency system based on coin and coin
notes. Mr. Bland's plan does not inter
fere with tbe existing national bank
si stem, but instead oflallowing banks to
issue notes, as Carlisle's plan proposes,
Mr. Bland proposes tbat tbe govern
ment issue the notes, calling them coin
notes. These are to be redeemed in
gold and silver coin and tbe govern
ment is to coin both metals.
Tha*Bland measure wonld have been
offered as a substitute for tbe pending
bill, but at Mr. Walker, of Matsaohu
setts, bas given notice of preaenting a
substitute embodying tbe Republican
view of the subject. Mr. Bland's plan
will be offered in connection with a mo
tion to strike out all after the above
clause.
The bill provides for the free coinage
of silver and for the deposit of gold and
silver bullion and the issuance of legal
tender notes upon it. Tbe bullion ia to
be subsequently ooined and the ooin
notes are to be redeemed in gold and
ailver, without discrimination, as may
be most advantageous to the govern
ment. Provision is also made for issuing
coin notes on Btaudard silver coin. All
the outstanding gold and silver certill
catea are to be retired and coin notes
are to be substituted therefor.
Provision is also made for the redemp
tion of outstanding greenbacks and
treasury notes in gold or silver coin
without discrimination. An emergency
fund is created, so that in case of panic
or money stringency the seoretary of tbe
treasury may, on deposit of United
States interest-bearing bonds, issue to
depositors of the bonds coin notes.
interaat on anch bonds is to go to tbe
government while they are on deposit,
and should they mature while on de
posit they are to be cancelled.
BEATEN IN COMMITTEE.
Report on Bill for Forfeiture of Rail
road Land Granti.
Washington, Deo. 18. —The eenate
committee on public lands today decided
to adversely report the house bill pro
viding for the forfeiture of tbe lands of
grants where the roads are not complet
ed in the time specified in the bills,
though built at a later period. It ia
understood that there was a sharp con
test and the vote in the committee waa
a tie—s to s—and afterwards one of
thoee voting in the affirmative changed
his vote to the negative bo as to permit
the bill to be reported. Senator Berry
led tbe fight for tbe bill, contending
that aa tbe railroads had not complied
with the condition upon which the grant
was made, they should surrender the
lands. If the bill should become a law
it would result in restoring about 54,
--000,000 acres of land to the public do
main, .1(1,000,000acrea of whioh lie along
the line of the Northern Pan he road

WHAT FINANCIERS SAY.
Carlisle's Carrauoy Plan Wonld Praclpl
tate a Panic.
WARniN-QTOS, Dac. 18.—The minority
members, of the banking and ourrency
committee severely criticize tbe Carlisle
bill. They say :
"Tbe whole action of the party ma
jority of the committee waa moat extra
ordinary and not approved by ita voting
majority. Secretary Carlisle road a part
of the bill on the first day of his addroag
to the committee, Baying he had not
finished dictating it aud wonld bring it
in when he finiahed hia addresa to the
oommittes on tha following day, which
he did. It waa uot again read or in any
manner considered in committee and an
opportunity to consider or emend it was
refused to all members, Democrat! and
Republicans alike. On Saturday at 4
p.m., immediately npon tbe close of the
examination of Mr. St. John of Now
York, a motion was made to close the
hearing and go into executive session.
"Upon tho attempt of a member of
the minority to make a motion to tak*i
ap the bill for consideration, they were
informed by the chairman, Mr. Spring
er, that the Democratic party majority
hod concluded not to eubro.it tbe hill to
the committee forany motion whatever,
but to roport it to tho house on Mon
day aud that each member should offer
what amendments hn chose.
"It ia an opiniou of a number of the
moat clear headed and eminent finan
ciers in the community that if ths Car
lisle bill was enacted into a law within
20 daya that it would precipitata a panic
far more severe than that of '98, as it

WALTERS ART COLLECTION.
It Is Left la Mr. Wallers' Soa and Daugh
ter and Mnet ttctnalsi Intaat.
New York Herald: Tbe celebrated
art eolleotion belonging to the late
William T. Walters will probably re
main In Baltimore. By the terma of
Mr. Walters' will, whioh was filed for
probate in the orphans' oonrt in Tow
ton, Md., today, tbe great collection of
paintinga, statuary and ceramics be
comes the joint property of hit two
children, Mr. Htary Walters of this
oity and Mra. Warren Delano of
Orange, N. J.
Mr. Walters, however, recommends
tbat a valuation for the entire collection
be agreed npon between bis daughter
and son, and that ooe or tbe other be
come tbe sole owner thereof. It ia
known that Mr. Henry Walters ia very
anxious to possess ths magnificent art
gallery, and it is believed he will attain
his purpose through the consent of hie
sister.
The estate left by Mr. Walters ia es
timated to be worth $10,000,000. With
the exception of a few email bequests
the property will be divided between
his son end daughter, with the son and
Benjamin F. Newcomer as executors of
the will. The only charitable bequest
la one of $10,000 to the Maryland blind
institute.
The clause of Mr. Walter's will per
taining to the art collection readt tbut:
"To my two children, Harry and Jenny,
all tha pictnrst, statuary, water oolirs,
original drawings in frames or portfolios
and books and tbe silverware which

lery at No. 5, Monnt Vernon place, at
the time of ray death, to be equally di
vsded between theun, share and share
alike; and whereas this collection aside
from its intrinsio value, haa its import
ance very largely incrsa'ed by being
kept intact without divirion, it it mv
desire to provide for this, in case it
meets the views and wishes of my child
ren herein named, by authorizing
them to agree on a valuation, in money,
of all the article! here referred to and
then telling the interest of ooe to the

LOVE AND PROPOSALS.
Soma Interesting; Statistics ot Mathndu
Employed In Declaring tha Palitnn.
New York Advertiser: There is •
clever statistician who could taacli a
thiug or two to the novelist. This etalit
tician has attempted to classify the
action and methods of proposals, and as
a result has presented tabulated figures,
extremely interesting to psychologists.
Out ol 100 cases 36 gentlemen take lady
in arms, 67 gentlemen kiss lady on lips,
four gentlemen kiss lady on cheek, three
gentlemen show very good taste by kiss
ing lady on eyes, two gentlemen kiss
lady on hand. It is to be presumed
these two nut of 100 are the timid, diffi
dent kind, though it is poaiible that
they might be of the quietly sentimental
nature. One gentleman kisses lady on
nose. It must be added that tbe statis
tician is careful to insert tbe saving
clause of (by mistake).
There is even a record of a man kiss
ing a lady on edge of ehtwl; but thank
goodness there is only one in a hundred,
and the chances are that tbia man is
peculiar.
Seventy-two bold lady's hand, 17 hold
it very tightly. 14 have lumps in their
throats, and moe exclaim aloud,"Thank
God!" Only seven out of lOfdeclaro
themselves to be deliriously happy, and
five are too foil for utterance. Three
out of 100 stand on one foot when tbey
make proposals and two go down on one
knee, while nine make a formal pre
lude—something like tbe mails at tbe
play, we suppose, when tbe villain ap
peals to heaver, to witness tbe consume
ing flame of his affections for the heart
he plots to ruin, etc.
Tbe behavior of the lady nnder the
circumstances is equally entertaining
and instructive. Out of 100 cases 81
sink in ths arms of gentlemen, 68 rest
their heads on gentlemen'a breasts and
one ainka into the arms of a chair; 11
claap their arms around the gentlemen's
necks; 6 weep tears of joy eilently and
44 weep teara aloud—whatever tbat
means; 72 have eyea full of love, and 0
out of the 100 ruth from the room to tell
somebody. Only 4 are greatly surprised
and 87 of tbe 100 knew tbat aornething
waa coming. Five giggle hysterically
and one even sneezes. Only one of 100
etrugglea not to be kissed, while six
kits gentlemen first, [f the statistician j
ia to be believed one out 100 women will I
soy, "Yes, but don't be a fool!"
HE WILL NOT CONTEST.
Ramlib and Marsh Will Comply With a
Modsat Itaquest.
Dan Burns may contest tbe election of
Jim Bndd, but nobody will contest the
latest returns received by Kamieh and
Marsh last night.
At 9 o'clock a poor, worn-out horse
was tied In front of their office on New
High street. At 11 p.m. ha died, and
some wag tied a card on bie head, which
reads as follows:
"I was a good Democrat bat bays
gone with the rest of my kind. Bury mi
deep and resurrect rae when Missouri
comos back into camp."
This most modest request will ha com
plied with, except that he will no up in
smoke via ths oramatory routs, aa pro
vided by law.

it was confronted by the clerks armed
with revolvers. Thoy tired over the
heads of the mob and wounded a man
and a woman. Tho mob then rushed
into Cramer's store, and carried off a
large number of watches. Several per
sons were slightly bruised hy being
struck with clubs.
From about. 3:30 o'clock until 6
o'clock the town was at the mercy of the

broken and tha attitude of th < mob waa
so threatening that the prisoner win

drawn up in front of the police station,
