LONDON, Nov. 7.—(Copyright, 1895.)
—The Saturday Review publishes an
article today on "Canada and the Im
perial Customs Union," in which it
calls attention to the spirit of disaffec
tion with the empire which is at workln
Canada, and says:
"Canada's peculiar geographical posi
tion regarding the United States is a
natural aid to the propagation of this
spirit and annexation to the United
States would be the logical outcome.
What needs to be done In tht direction
of a customs Income should be done
quickly. How Incredible is the folly
of the attitude which Downing street
has hitherto adopted toward Canadian
proposals for commercial federation."
The Saturday Review adds: "Though
it is idle to hope that the new Laurier
ministry has Inherited the old enthusi
asm, for federation, it is nowise likely
that the premier will favor the project,
because he believes that Canada must
enter into closer commercial relations
either with Great Britain or with the
United States. Even a Liberal minis
try would hesitate at the awkward vista
of problems which the latter alliance
opens."
The Manchester Guardian says: "It
Is whispered among bimetallists that
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of
state for the colonies during his visit to
the United States, has become a con
vert."
The new archbishop of Canterbury,
Dr. Temple, is already ln bad odor with
the Liberals. Speaking at a church
convocation on Thursday, he com
plained of the free education act and
urged Increased concessions to the vol
untary schools, in order to enable them
to compete with the board schools. He
referred to the high salaries of the
teachers ln the latter schools, for
which the Dally News takes him se
verely to task, saying: "As head mas
ter at Rugby, Dr. Temple received
£4000 ($20,000) yearly; as bishop of Ex
eter he received £5003 (125,000); as
bishop of London he received £10,000
(850,000) and as archbishop of Canter
bury he will receive £15,000 ($75,000).
That he should go out of his way to at
tack the extremely moderate incomes
of this slnguarly industrious class is
both Impudent and contemptible."
The Investors' Review this week
points out that forty-four bicycle com
panies were floated during the past year,
with a capital of nearly 14,500,000, and
that out of the purchase price, £9,048,275,
the venders took over £8,000,000 in cash,
showing, it is claimed, a decided prefer
ence for sovereigns and over shares.
The Review thinks this industry is over
done, and that American machines will
eventually drive the high priced British
goods out of the market.
The sensational speech of the duchess
of Orleans (the Archduchess Maria Do
rothea) on the occasion of her wedding,
and whan presented with a magnificent
crown of diamonds by 25 ladles of the
French legitimist aristocracy, has
caused some stir ln Paris.
Emperor Francis Joseph's dis
avowal of the speech ln the princess'
behalf does not prove that the story Is
not true, and it is looked upon as only-
Intended to be an apology to the French
government by seeming to rebuke the
duchess, who, It is added, spoke with
out having consulted him.
It is stated ln this connection that the
duke of Orleans will shortly Issue a
proclamation to his followers, announc
ing his alliance with a member of the
house of Hapsburg.
In Paris yesterday there was a sort of
royalist demonstration. A number of
the royalists walked up and down the
boulevard* and handed to passers-by a
royalist manifesto and portraits of the
duke of Orleans. In addition during
the night royalist placards were posted
and a number of youths brought to the
Pont Neuf a bust of the Republics, with
Its face painted black, a Phrygian cap
so its head, smothered in red paint, and
With a pipe stuck in its mouth. This
tuat was hung by the neck around the
railing of Henry IV's statute and was
Inscribed "1796-1896. Good King Henry
has his revenge." Firecrackers were
exploded around the spot, colored flres
were burned and the youths started a
royalist song, whereupon the police in
terfered and dispersed them.
The Dally Mall continues its interest
ing letters from a correspondent who is
visiting various American states. It
devotes today's letter to California ln
connection with which the correspond
ent says: "When the long-promised,
long-delayed high prices come in sight
there will be new fortunes to make in
California, and saw palaces to be
built on Nob Hill. The people of the
Pacific slope are living in a country that
has very manifestly ways and a will of
its own. They have adapted themselves
and their environment to what It seems
to be good to them to do, and that they
do. With many of them fancy goes no
farther than wearing black shirts.
With others it tak»s stronger flights,
and soars to clearing out banks and
holding up trains."
A TIMELY RESCUE
Lake Sailors Suffer Everything Except
Death—All Saved
CHICAGO, Nov. 7.—Seven men and
one woman, composing the crew of the
schooner Rising Star, after drifing in a
helpless condition on a leaking vessel
down storm-lashed Lake Michigan from
Tuesday noon until Friday night, were
towed Into port today by the steamer
Colin Campbell. The schooner's crew
had given UP all hope, and, worn with fa
tigue and exposure to the icy blasts,
were clinging to the rigging when the
Campbell sighted their signals of dis
tress.
The Rising Star, .lumber laden, cleared
at Green Bay, Wis., on Tuesday for Chi
cago. In the afternoon the boat sprung
a leak. The pumps were manned and by
hard work the vessel was kept afloat.
The hold was filled with water and
bread alone kept the crew
from starving. In the terrible storm
Which raged Thursday and Friday the
deck load and upper works were carried
away. The boat drifted helplessly out
of the path of lake travel, and It was by
mere chance that on Friday evening the
Colin Campbell sighted the wreck. The
members of the crew, although suffering
terribly from cold and hunger, will re
cover.
A WEARY WALKER
Who Traveled Far, Earning Neither
Honor Nor Money
NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—Frederick G.
Koegel, who holds the championship
long-distance pedestrian record of the
world, called at the city hall today to
obtain the mayor's signature to a form
of certificate which he carried. Koegel
claims that last June he finished a walk
around the world on a wager of $3000
against $5000 with some San Francisco
men that he could not perform the task
in two years. He says that he started
from San B'rancisco in June, 1894, and
got back within the specified time, but
lost his bet because he had not been able
to get through Siberia, which was one
of the conditions of the wager. He was
refused permission to go to Siberia on ac
count of George Kennan's book. He has
just walked back across the continent on
his way home to Bavaria.
During his walk around the world he
says he saw 400 Armenians massacred
at Constantinople and 800 at another
place.

WHERE IS PARNELLT
LONDON, Nov. 7.—The Sunday Times
sayß a firm of London publishers wrote
last week to Prof. Haddon of Dublin
anent the matter of preparing a life of
Parnell. Prof. Haddon replied, saying
that a general belief exists that Parnell
Is alive on an obscure ranch ln a western
state. Shortly after the announcement
of Parnell's death, Prof. Haddon ap
proached the widow, mother and person
al friends of Parnell with a view of ob
taining materials for a biographical
sketch. Documents and statements
concerning Mr. Parnell were refused, the
reason being given in confidence that
Parnell is still alive.

THE PRESIDENTIAL POLICY
Outlined by the Power Behind
the Throne
M'KINLEY FEELS GRATEFUL
To the Democrats Who Contributed to
His Success
The First Movement Will Be to Obtain
More Revenue—Democratic Ad
vice Will Be Accepted
Associated Press Special Wire
NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—The World this
morning says:
Mark Hanna gave the World the fol
lowing outline of what he understood to
be President-elect MeKinley's general
policy:
"I have had but comparatively brief
conversations with Major McKinley
since his election. Next week I expect
to meet him at Cleveland, and, as he has
had time to think over matters, I pre
sume he will have more details than I
am at present aware of. But this much
I know, he feels that he owes much to
the patriotic Democrats who prefer
principles to strict party lines. Indiana,
for instance, was unquestionably carried
against fusion by Democratic votes. He
recognises the very great service per
formed by Democratic and independ
ent newspapers during the campaign.
"Major McKinley will endeavor to see
collected a great national party that will
give prosperity to the country. He ex
pects and hopes that men of all shades of
former political belief will be united to
this end. I have talked with some of
the most Influential of the old Demo
cratic leaders, and I am glad to say that
they are ln accord with Major MeKin
ley's hopes.
"The first movement he will make will
be to obtain sufficient revenue to con
duct the government. Further issues of
bonds will be altogether too dangerous.
Business prosperity and stability de
mands that as soon as possible the gov
ernment should be on a paying basis. To
this end an extra session of congress will
be necessary, and President-elect Mc-
Kinley will undoubtedly call one Boon
after his inauguration.
"Legislation will be required to secure
the desired revenue, and Mr. McKinley
will do everything ln his power to secure
it, as well as the legal establishment of
a policy which will tend to put every
body at work.
"In al lthis he hopes and expects that
he will be backed by patriotic men, re
gardless of party lines.
"As for myself, I am not after any
office, and will endeavor to attend to pri
vate business affairs, which need my
personal supervision."
Asked what Democrats of note he had
talked with on the subject of the future,
Mr. Hanna said: "I dc- not wish to name
them all, but I may mention Messrs. W.
C. Whitney and Abram S. Hewitt as ex
amples."
BOWERS DIES HARD
Insists That the Figures Sent ln Are In
correct
SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 7.—Con
gressman Bowers will not admit his de
feat by Castle in the Seventh district,
and insists that he has been elected.
During the day returns from San Diego
indicate that Bowers gained thirty
votes, but if the figures already turned in
are accurate it Is hard to see how he can
overcome Castle's lead. The few pre
cincts yet to hear from are said to be
Democratic, and he cannot hope to make
gains ln them. Bowers, however, claims
to have received Information that the
returns sent in up to date are Incorrect
and that he leads Castle by 200 votes.
MONEY IN BANK.
NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—The Financier
says this week: The statement of the
clearing house banks for the week end
ing November 7th, covering but five
business days, is chiefly valuable as a
record of the flurry immediately pre
ceding election.
The statement is supposed to include
the business of the week only up to
Thursday as a holiday intervened, it is
very evident that the recovery which
has taken place since the election Is not
shown in the totals. For instance, it is
known that several millions of specie
have been re-deposited with banks and
the gold Is now in the clearing house
vaults, although the statement shows
only a slight expansion in specie. It
does not sssm reasonable, either In the
OETTINQ READY FOR THE WATER HUNT
face of rapidly rising and active stock
markets, such as marked last week, to
look for a shrinkage ln loans amounting
to $4,070,700, which the statement shows.
The rapid fall ln call money, and the
competition between banks for com.
mercial offerings since Tuesday Is an
other evidence that banks are not de
creasing loans and It Is still a little early
to look fnr voluntary payments of ob
ligations due banks. The condition of
the banks at the actual close of business
Saturday was, of course, better than the
statement Indicated and beginning with
next week, the expansion which set in
after November 3d, will be fully reflect
ed. The hoarded gold now pouring Into
the banks Is bringing the clearing house
vault balances toward the $40,000,000
mark and there seems to be no doubt
that the banks will soon resume the set
tlement of balances In gold coin. The
banks, in fact, will probably show large
gains ln gold from the treasury reserve,
since the specie will And Its way into
bank vaults and thence into the treas
ury. Next week's statement ought to
.make a very Interesting showing ln all
items as the clearing house Institutions,
for the Arst time in months, will prob
ably be able to maintain their reserves
uniformly above the 25 per cent limit.

AN ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE
Issued by National Populist
Chairman Butler
THE ELECTION OF M'KINLEY
Does Not Express the Sentiments of
the People
Prejudice Against the Democratic
Name Prevented the Republicans
From Joining Hands With
the Populists.
Associated Press Special Wire
WASHINGTON. Nov. 7.—Senator
Butler has Issued the following:
To the People of the United States:
In the remarkable campaign Just
closed the People's party was the only
party that supported solidly and unit
edly the great and vital Issues rep
resented ln the candidacy of Mr. Bryan.
This was natural, for the People's
party came Into existence to bring to
the front and press to the utmost the
principles of Lincoln and Jefferson, al
ready long discarded by the two old
parties. The money power, feeling rea
sonably sure of Its control and domina
tion of the leaders and controlling in
fluences of the Republican party ln
1892 gave its support to the candidacy
of Grover Cleveland for the especial
purpose of having him, through the use
of patronage and' otherwise, crush out
the silver sentiment In the south and
make the leaders of that party as com
pletely subservient as those* in the Re
publican party. To accomplish this
purpose, four cabinet ministers were
selected from the south, and an unusu
ally large amount of patronage was
used on the political leaders to the
same end. It will be remembered Mr.
Cleveland demanded that the Demo
cratic senators and congressmen give a
decisive vote in the interest of the gold
standard before he would give out the
postofflces.
This deep laid plan might have suc
ceeded had not the People's party at this
Juncture sprung into existence, ex
posed the plot, stood in the breach and
appealed to the patriotic hosts of both
parties to check the scheme of the peo
ple's despoilers and rally to a common
defense. The People's party forced the
Democratlo organization to repudiate
Clevelandlsm ar.d return to correct fun
damental principles.
Not only this, the People's party then
forced the Republican party to cease
hedging and straddling for the purpose
of deceiving tho people and drove them
to take a stand on one side or Uie otb^ 1 *
of the vital issues at stake. The issue
now being gquarely joined il was evi
dent that those influences in the Demo
cratic party which had dominated and
debauched the party for a quarter of a
century would be driven to support the
party that took a position on the side
of trusts, monopolies and money
gamblers. While on the other hand, it
is evident that a large percentage of
the Republican party favored the prin
ciples now squarely forced to the front,
yet only a small per cent could in this
campaign support them because they
found them under the Democratic ban
ner. Had it not been for the prejudice
against the Democratic name, as well
as want of confidence in Democratic
promises, for which It must be frankly
admitted past experience furnishes
ample ground, the majority of the vot
ers of the country, in spite of the tre
mendous and unparalleled forces put
forward by Republican managers,
would have cast their votes for financial
reform and American independence.
The People's pai<., with high patriot
ism and unselfish devotion to principle
greater than ever before exhibited by
any other party, stepped outside its or
ganization, to throw its two million
votes solirtry for Bryan. Had not more
than this number of those who called
themselves Democrats In 1892 given
their support to Mr. McKinley, the
cause of the people and American
principles would have triumphed ihis
year. This class of Democrats will
surely support the party of monopolies
in the future.
Their places in tbe ranks of the reform
hosts must be taken by patriotic Repub
licans. In fact, Bryan would have been
elected in this contest had even 26,000
silver Republicans come to the rescue.
The election of McKinley and the tri
umph of the gold standard, does not ex
press the desires and sentiments of the
people. The majority oppose the policy
tor which ha stands and will so vote
The herald prints
16,500
I Paper* Teday
whenever the opportunity 1* presented
for proper alignment. The remarkable
and brilliant campaign of William J.
Bryan would have aligned these force*
and marched them to triumphant vic
tory If any candidate or leader in Amer
ica could have done so under the Demo
cratic banner. The administration of
McKinley cannot bring prosperity to
the American people, the mills caitot
be kept open, Idle labor given employ
ment and general prosperity restored
and maintained until the wealth produc
ers receive fair returns for their labor
and are thus enabled to purchase. The
gold standard and monopoly rule, to the
continuation of which Mr. McKinley
stands pledged, means four more years
of falling prices, four years more of
lockouts and strikes, four years more
of reduced wages and idle labor. This
will cause the patriotic rank and file of
the Republican party to condemn and
repudiate McKlnleylsm as the patriotic
rank and file of the Democratic party
has condemned and repudiated Cleve
landism. I cannot believe otherwise, for
I have not less confidence ln the patriot
ism of this class of Republicans than
the rank and file of the Democratic party
has already demonstrated. Therefore,
a large per cent, who, though not fooled
by the ambiguous phrase* of honest
money and prosperity, yet who would
not ln this campaign fight under the
Democratic banner, will surely Join
hands with the majority of American
voters outside the old parties and over
throw government by trusts and monop
olies run in the Interest ef foreign capi
talists. The People's party has made
this possible; in fact, inevitable. The
position of the People's party In this
great contest has convinced every pa
triotic American that the party can be
trusted to stand for the principles of
good government and the Interests of
the people under any and all circum
stances. Therefore, the People's party
will be the nucleus around which patri
otic hosts must and will gather to re
deem the betrayed republic and restore
sperlty to oppressed and outraged
l le.
