ALL FAVOR A POPULAR LOAN. Opinions of Bankers on the Financial Statns. What the Administration and Con gress Should Do. ■lias Benedlor, Ohioncar I)»ptw and Senator Hill all Apprnr. of a Ptao to Borrow 5500.000.000. Special to The Herald. Nsw York, Jan. 28.—The World will this morning say : With the gold in the treasury down to 162.000,000, "with 114,000,000 drawn out in one week, with more then $7,000,000 lent abroad in one dey, with the government spending more than it receives, with recent bond issues resulting in nothing bnt pallia tion and debt, with foreign capitalists turning American eecarities into gold because tbey doubt the future stability of bodge podge of government and finance, with Wall etreet in the first stages of fever, with the specter of pre mium on gold threatening all standards of valne, the time has come for strong, beroio and instant action that wiß end eace end for all tbe present lack of com mon sense in the management of finances of ths country. Statesmen and financiers ell say tbat a crisis is at band, and tbey all cry out that something mast be done. The Woild presents opinions oi tbe leading men and bankers of the conn try as to what that something should be, as to what the administration and congress should do at once. To man tbey assert that a large popular loan, say of 1500,000.000 would be subscribed for in a few days and that it would give per manent relief. Congress and Cleveland tbey tbink should take such a step im mediately. Here are a few among sev eral hundred opinions: Ellas O. Benedict, President Cleve land's intimate friend, eaid: "There is not time to bring about sufficient una nimity upon any wise plan of establish ing onr currency upon a firm foundation daring what remains of this congress. It was foreseen long ago that legal ten der money instead of aoting as a circu lating medium would become a circu lating pump on the gold deposits ia the treasury. So it will continue to be at every period when, as now, the govern ment is obliged to provide gold to adjust the balances of trade instead ol leaving that dnty where it belongs—to banking interests of the country. A step in the right direction would be the appoint ment of a commission whioh should comprise members from the senate, honse and from among the banking fraternity. Such commission would undoubtedly formulate in tbe near future a perfectly feasible and safe plan for sztrioating us from monetary em barrassment. Tbe difficulty lies in the want of wisdom in congress." "I thoroughly approve of a popular loan," said Cbaunoey M. Depew. "In the present state of affairs—with the Democrats in power and the Republicans coming into power—the situation can not be remedied except by some tenta tive measure. Tbe first thing necessary is to restore credit and confidence by a popular loan whiob will keep the treas ury in condition to mset ita obligationa. Then, when the financial world under stands tbat tbs people of the United States are determined to meet tbeir obligations, and in gold, there will at once be a restoration of credit and con fidence." Senator Hill said: "Tbequestion that now confronts na ia not one of partisan abip, but of patriotiem. We will see within a few daya whether our Republi can friende are equal to the demanda tbat may be made upon them. I be lieve legialation ia demanded from the present congreaa providing for gradual extinguishment, and tbis can be sup plied tbrough a popular loan. It is dif ficult to discover why tbe trne friends of free bimetallic coinage in congress or elsewhere ebonld object to the elimina tion of thia greenback paper currency, which, it ia now generally conceded, sbonld be cancelled." MCRDBHKD B* MAFIA. Che Assassin lool.ir Revived In New Orleens. New Orleans, Jsn. 27.—The Italian mafia has again begnn operating in tbia city. The murder of Tony Chiseai of Chicago, in tbe Italian quarter of tbe city, Wednesday morning, was followed yeaterday by a letter from the mafia to one of the wealthiest Italians in the city demanding |2000 on pain of aaaaaioation. Ghi eesi waa murdered to wipe out a debt which be bad against two membera of the aasociation. One of them bad just ssrved a term in tha penitentiary. Ihe murderers fled to Thibodeaux, about 70 milsß from the city, and bave ao far eluded capture. Tbe latter demanding money was ad dressed to A.

Tbe letter threatened assassina tion in case the police were notified. Montelone waa very much frlghteued, but finally decided to pl.eae the matter in the handa of the police and appeal for protection. , ,T. .

AH** UNO TBS! BANQUET BOARD. Jk Bl\gnUleanr. Dboner to He (Ihgn by Governor Morion. Special to The ii.-.<.... Nsw York, Jan. 27.—A diaaer to be given tomorrow night in Albany by Govern >o Morton promises to be one of tbe great political-events of tbe year. Around the board will be gathered some of tbe most prominent Republican lead era of tbe state. Ostensibly the dinner is given Co the chief state officials, but in addition to these there wilt be tbe "big fon*"—ex-Senator Piatt. Cbanncey Depew und ex-Senators Warner Miller and Frank Hiaoock. Mayor Strong, Speaker Fifth and a number of othera will alao be present. It is being talked among Betpnblicana that ilia ex aotly the kind of a dinner tbat tbe shrewd, hospitable and ambitious old gentleman would bave made out if he had atarted in a campaign of getting aolid with hia psnty iv (he atate before the general setting up of delegatea for the Republi can national convention of 1896. Re publicans are aaying that Morton has a presidential bee in hia bonnet. Piatt's great struggle at thia time is for control of the nation's delegates from this atate in 1596. It waa Piatt who made Mor ton's nomination and eleotion ac gov ernor possible. Tbat Piatt would be equally anxious to make bim president ie generally believed. If the governor himself, by a few well-timed social at tentions, can smooth down the milled feathers at the opposition it would be good politics. Swept by Blizzard. Sabanaic Lake. N. V., Jan. 26.—The little blizzard reported early yesterday, laat night assumed tbe proportions of a hurricane. The storm continued today with unabated fury, tbe registration be ing zsro. The wind blew 40 miles an hour and piled the Bnow everywhere in huge drifts, and tbe highways were im passable. No trains have arrived here since laat evening, and the railroad com panies have not triad to run a train out north. Many travelera are anowbound in the wooda. FINDING A LOST MINE. STORY OF A RICH DISCOVERY IN ARIZONA CONFIRMED. History of tbe Old Frenchman Mine K« •alled by the Lucky Find of Prospectors. Pbosnix, Ariz., Jan. 27.—Jack Shel doD, tba llarqua Hala mail carrier, con firma tbe atory of the discovery of the iost Frenchman mine and the reports of valuable orea in the old workings. The camp equipment, tente, toole, etc., are weather-beaten and decayed. Tbe newa baa created intenae interaat among the old reaidenta here, who remember the disappearance of the Frenchmen 30 yeare ago. The atory goea that they deposited with a Ynma merchant $5,000 in bnliion and never showed np afterward. Their diaappearance ia wrapped In myatery yet. Nnmerous prospecting parties bave hunted for tbe mine now found. It is located in the mountains 25 miles north, slightly wsatsrly of Aztec, Yuma county. Old reaidenta regard tbe strike as an important one, as it verifies reports con cerning lost mines that have been con sidered mythical. The news has re vived interest in the loat Dutchman mine, supposed to be in Superatition mountains, and the Adams diggings come in for a share. Much money and many lives were lost searching for them. An Indian, either a Cocopab or a Yuma, guided the Kirklanda to tha loat mine. I W. 8. Hooper, manager of the Occi dental hotel in Ban Francisco, waa the merchant with whom tbe bullion waa deposited by tbe Frenchman who never came back. INDIANA'S SUNK BIRD.

LaPorte, Ind., Jan. 27.—Mrs. Geo deke. formerly Misa Georgia Cleia, known aa "Indiana'a Queen of Song," has just been released from prison at Bernais, Franoe, where she bas been confined on charge of arson.

Trouble Over the Papal Decree In Wis consin. Special to The Herald. Milwaukee, Wia., Jan. 27.—Arch bishop Katzer evidently feels tbat hia letter on the sscret society question is going to arouse a great deal of opposi tion among tbe Catholic membera oi secret societies in tbis city. He was at eervice at St. John's cathedral today and deemed it necessary to say a few words, exhorting all Catholics to obey tbe mandate. He said he felt certain that all Catholics who were membera of these societies would leave them at ! once. Catholics here freely commented on this, and said it showed he was aware the edict was going to bs resisted. There ia one lodge ol Knigbts of Pythias here which ia made up almoat entirely of Catholios, and many members are outspoken in opposition to tbe papal de cision and claim they will never obey it, but will leave tba church.

LOS ANGELES HERALD] MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 28, 1898. THE WORSHIPERS HAD TO WALK One of the Kesn'.ts of the Brooklyn Strike. Very Few Cars Running ou Any of the Lines. a Oui.it Sabbath Among; tho Strikers. Effects of the rl.-Op rihovriua In Many Way*. Brooklyn, N. V., Jan. 27.—Were it not for tbe scarcity of cars today one would not have known tbat one of tbe biggeat Btrikes in tho histoiy of Brook lyn was in progress. Church members bad to walk to church in many in stances or take chances in the enor mous crowds which took possession of the care. Otherwise tbere was perfect oalm. Large crowds assembled aronnd tbe depots where military guards are stationed, but there waa no violence there and the bantering that the troops received was of a good-natured kind. Tboee in positions to draw conclnsioas frem facts, and draw them without prejudice, say that the strike is about ended. The com paniea aeem to be In a position to ran their cars. They are not skilfully operated, and throughout tbe day there were many collisions and tbere was much coming together, but there was no accident of a serious na ture. DISSIPATED LOOKING CARS. The number of cars opnpated today was slightly over the number running yesterday. Some were without some of tbeir windows and others were running with dissipated looking motor boxes and badly twisted dash-boards, but most oi them were carrying passengers without molestation. Tbe companies did not venture to open any new lines, nor did tbey seek to run tbeir cross-town line of cars through tbe Erie basin district today. Many of tbe inhabitants of that locality are of a turbnlent character, and would, the police aay, do mischief, if only for tbe Bake of making trouble. The railroad companies have now be come able to operate their lines after dusk and will, it no aerioua disturbances are made in the future, soon be running them all night, as they did bsfore the strike began. The quietneaa of the strike has been brought about by the leadera of the strike, who have pointed out to tbe men the folly of a riotous courße. They ex plained that tbe state could furnish two military men for each oar if they were needed, and that mob rule would Boon be overtbrown by bullets and bayonets. The men beard and understood tbe ro quaata of the leaders aad will carry them out. Starvation already confronts many of tbe families of tbe strikers. TEI WOLF SHOWS ITS HEAD, The men were not well equipped financially when they deoided to stop work, and the bulk of their funds baa been used for the transportation of nun union men to the estiva from which they came to replace the striker*. This alone has cost the strikers many thou sands of dollars. Storekeepers bave been very considerate, but now that they see the strikers are uhiuk «in"»™ by men from other cities, they are loth to give credit, and the wives and chil dren of the mis out of work are going hungry. Landlords, too, do not enter into tbe merits of the situation between the strikers and the companies, and nromises to pay when the strike is ended do not out much figure with them. The demand for food and for rent, however, crippled the resources of tbe strikers, and many of tbem are in sore straits. It was reported that all Knights of Labor in Brooklyn would go on Btrike, but no credeuce can be put in the ru mors. Tbe saloons throughout Brooklyn were kept tightly closed today in obe dience to a special order issued by May or Scbieren, and a threat made by Su perintendent of Police Campbell tbat be would vigorously enforce .the order. WHAT THE RAILROAD OFFICIALS SAY, President Lewia, of tbe Brooklyn Heights company, did not come to bis oflice this morning, nor did any other officer of the company. During tbe day the statement was given out that tbe company has received more than 200 applications from men claiming to be efficient motormen and conductors, for positions. Many of tbe men now on the strike are represented ac applying for rein statement. President Norton, of the Atlantic ave nue road, directed things by telephone from his home. "So far as the Atlantic avenue road ia concerned," said Chief Clerk Kennedy, "the etrike ie over. We bave more ap plicants for work than we have posi tions. At least 100 cara are out today and our Sunday schedule only calls for tbat number ont of 150." "How about tbe linemen ?" was aeked. "We bave all we need. Tbe power house men are not going out. That 1 can say positively and no wires are be ing cut." Ex-Committaemen Giblin and Beat went to Philadelphia today to confer with Grand Master Workman Sovereign. At the strikers' headquarters it waa ad mitted that theae renresentativea were on an important mission, but the exact nsture of it, the strike leaders refuaed to divulge. Tbe report, however, that they had in view the callingout oi the entire Knights of Labor in Brooklyn gained considerable credence. Master Work man Connelly said the report tbat he intended to call off the strike was un true in every respect. "Tbe companies," he said, "bave not by any means all tbe men they want or need. They are badly crippled, for all tbe men now in their employ would not be sufficient to operate tbe roads in the manner they were operated before the strike." Mr. Connelly also said that it waa not true that tbe men in the power bouaea were to be called ont. strikers' mass-meeting. A maas-meeting of ths striken' friends and sympathizers was held thia after noon at the Atheuieum. Mr. Boberta, prealdent of the Stereotypera' union, No. 16, presided. Henry George waa tbe chief speaker. He said if the municipality owned tbe roads, and taxed land values, tbe railroads would be free to tbe people. Congressman Jerry Simpson, who also apoke, urged tbe audience in the future to vote the Populist ticket. One of tbe prinoipal planks in tbe Populißt plat form was tbe ownership of the railroads, telegraph and telephone lines by the government. Early tbis morning Company G of tbs Seventh regiment was obliged to dis perse a crowd of 500 persons. Thomaa McUrary, a striking raotorman. waa dis covered placing stones on tbe track. A crowd gathered end jeered at tbe offi cers. McCrarv was arrested in spite of their protests. A POLICEMAN lIEATEN. Moaea Brown, a special policeman, was terribly beaten and his shield and club taken away from him by a mob in a saloon which the officer entered this afternoon. Brown had been drinking during the afternoon and was abusive. Members of the Seventh regiment, stationed in Nsw York, are calculating on receiving orders at 10 o'clock tomor row to return home. They base this in formation on tbe fact that tbe rations for but two more meals were delivered today. Qaite a number of windows were broken along Myrtle avenue with out any arrests being made. Odd Fel lows' ball, the headquarters of the atrikera at Ridgewood, was thronged all day, but tbe best ol order was main tained. Master Workman Murphy said that his men believed in keeping the Sabbath. This morning, for tba first time in two weeks, cars were running on tbe Rich mond tiili and Lutheran cemetery lines of the Brooklyn Heights Railroad com pany, and the Cypress Hill cemetery brrnch of the Brooklyn, Queens County and Suburban railway system. The Hopkins and Lorironr etreet, Meeker and Metropolitan avenues were also supplied with car service. resolutions ok sympathy. Tho Central Labor union of Brooklyn held a meeting this afternoon. Resolu tions of eympatby for the atrikera were adopted and it was reaolved to boycott tbe lines of the three companies affected by tbe strike. About $600 waa collected in aid of the atrikera. Thomas J. Mctiuira and H. B. Martin, of the general executive board, were in terviewed by a reporter for tbe Abso ciated Preaa, and said tbeir visit to Brooklyn bad nothing to do with the strike. "Master Workman Connelly will wait on tha preßidenta of the three railroads tomorrow," said Mr. McGuire, "aad in form them that the men who are ocked out are ready to go to work tnme diately." "This will of course bs on oordition tbat tbe men running tripa are to re ceive $1.50 a day and are to worl only 10 hours a day out of 12 conaicutive hours. "The best legal opinion haa bean ob tained, and we are advised thu the effect of this action will be to make Judge Gaynor's decision maniatory. Presidanta Lewis, Norton and Vycker can no longer give any excuae or not running their cars on schedule tine. "Proceedings will also be iuatitiled to morrow against the officers of tie com pany for working the men morethan 10 hours a days. They are liable t> a fine of $500 and a term of imprieonnant for every such offense. Proaecutbna are also pending by citizens aganet tbe companies for not fulfilling thepromise of their charters. Some promitent citi zens left for Albany this eveuig for the purpose of putting the matte in the banda of the attorney general.' To Call Out the Knight. Philadelphia, Jan. 27.-Secretary Hayee of the Knighta nf Labr.aatd to night that he had no knowle«e of the arrival here of the committemen, Best and Oiblin, of the strikers' executive committee, who were said tchave come to meet Maßter Workman fjvereign to Brooklyn. He said"that Mr Sovereign is now in Dcs Moines, Is., a>d he does not know when he will retun east. WHO WILL BE IAMED? PREFERENCES FOR RIPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOIINEE.

Jan. 27. —The week in the senate will open with tbe renewal ol tbe discussion of the Hawaiian question - which promises to become the subject of several very animated speeches be fore it shall be definitely disposed of. The adoptfon of the Vest amendment to the Allen resolution, instead of dis couraging the antagonists of the admin istration, bad apparently tbe effect of spurring them to even more strenuous and more pronounoed opposition. They express themselveß as hopeful of revers ing the verdict of Saturday when the next vote shall be reached which shall be on the final adoption of tbe substi tute. Senator feller will inaugurate tbe discussion for the weok with a con tinuance of hia apeeoh begun yesterday. The Hawaiian queation will be confined to tbe first hours of ths daily sessions and will, at the expiration of its time, give way to other subjects. THE BANKRUPTCY BILL. Tbe bankruptcy bill bas been given the position of unfinished business and will occupy attention for tbe greater part of tbe week. Senator George will in augurate the debate with a speeoh on Monday. He expects tbe measure to encounter very pronounoed opposition and in this will not be disappointed, as a majority of tbe eastern and northern senators will be found to be against the bill. When tbe bill is disposed of In whatever way, the senate will probably proceed to consider the pooling bill. If the threatened conflict between this and tbe territorial admission bills ehonld occur a majority of the Republican sen ators would support a faction favorable to taking np the pooling bill and would probably turn the tables in Its favor. There are no appropriation bills now be fore tbe senate but three of thoae re maining unaoted open, viz: The Dis trict of Oolumbla, ths diplomatic and the postoffice bills will be reported dur ing the week, and tt Is Ssnater Cock rell's purpose to call tbem up imme diately with the view to getting them out of the way as soon aa possible.

THE INCOME TAX. itin Thought to Be a Popular measure With the Paople. Washington, Jan. 27,—Members ol c/ngress who believe that tbe income rjx is an equable means ol railing rev ipues are gratified at the unexpectedly food showing ol the preliminary canvas joade by collector! oi internal revenue at the direotion ol Secretary Carlisle. They believe tbat the greater the amount (realized irom this tax tbe more popular fit will become, and the more firmly [rooted aa a part ol the policy ol the gov ernment. Representative MoMillin ol Tennessee says that il a larga percentage of tbe revenue of tbe government is derived from tbis plan any attempts to repeal it before tbe expiration of the five-year limit fixed in tbe Wilaon bill will be exceedingly unpopular; that the greater the revenue derived from it the greater will tbe probability of ita ra-enactmant at tbe end of ita term. When the proposition to tax incomes wai before congress, the profit to be derived from it was esti mated at from f16,000.000 to $18,000,000. Later the estimate of tbe committee was raised to $30,000,000. Later Mr. Hall of Missouri, wbo hai given more attention to the history of tha income tax than any other man in tbe houae, did not place tbe total below $50,001), --000. From the reaulti of the canvass of the internal revenue bureau it appeara that Mr. Hall waa more nearly correct than the other forecaateri, He now aayi tbat tbe Income tax may not yield more than $50,000,000, and it is known that the treaeury otficlali do not plaoe ita reault below that mark. Tbe show ing made by 6 of the 63 diitriita givea ground for the eatimate that about 30, --000 peraona and oorporationa will con tribute to tbe treasury by thia plan. HIS SKULL FRACTURED.

Ie tbe docu ment the pope recalls the fact that be associated himself with the celebration of ths fourth centenary of tbe discov ery of America, the evangelization of which country was the first care of Columbus, which evangelization was realized by the Franciscan and Domini can monks and the Jesuit fathers. After pointing out that tbe first Catholic bishop in Amerloa was a great friend of George Washington, father of bis country, the pope ahowe how the Episcopal councils, aided by the breadth of viewa and the equity of Ameri can laws, assured the develop ment of Catholic institutions. It waa to contribute still more to tbis development tbat the pope founded the university at Washington, for it was of importance tbat Catholics sbould be in tbe front rank in sciencea. even modern science, provided they were combined with faith and integrity. To tbis end bis holineaa exhorts tbe biabopa to do all in tbair power to encourage the pro gress of ths university at Washington as well as the North American college in Rome. Io regard to the apostolic dele gation tbe pope states tbat it waa in stituted with a view to drawing cloaer together the bonda between tbe Oath olica of Amerioa and the holy ace with out in any way curtailing the powers of the bishops. ' ' Hia holineas urges the American epis copate to put an and to strife, to instill the idea of unity and the perpetuity of marriage among tbe faithful and tooin culcate among the people civil and re ligious virtues. In particular the pope calls upon the bishops to turn aside workmen's aaaooiatioua from law-break ing, to teaoh journaliata respect for re ligion and truth, to reprove those journ als which pass judgment upon episcopal acts, and, finally, to turn Protestants to Catholicism by charity, by institution in doctrine and by leading an exemplary life. In conclusion, bis holiness recom mends the sending of a mission to the Indisns. SPEAKER LYNCH'S VOTE. REDLANDS VOTERS DENOUNCE THE WILY LEGISLATOR.
