Mr. George P. Keeney, national organiser
of the BttAei party and president of the
National Asbociation or Silver Clubs, has
icturned to Washington, after an extended
tout throuli the South and West, and
reopened the national headquarters of the
party in the Sun Building. Mr. Keney.
although comparatively young In national
political work, is already one of the most
prominent and widely-known apostles of
the silver cause in the United States. It
was he who, unaided and without fuads,
organized the movement In New York city,
which, up to that time, hud been con
sidered by the older party leaders as a
hepeless iMd for bmietsi!lists, and which
rejutilted in the now historic mass meeting
at Cooper Union.
On July 18 last The Times published
an aitlcle setting forth at length Mr.
Kceney'a views on the progress or the .Ulevr
movement. In the course of this article
Mr. Keeney expressed certain opinions
which, in the light of recent develop
ments, were prophetic.
"It 1" conceded by the ablest European
statisticians," wrote Mr. Keeney, "that
tills country has the productive energy of
any tlree ol the great European powers
combined. That means that we have the
natural, or latent, power to sustain our
selves as a nation against any combina
tions of European capital in peace or war.
Hence, It is only a question of developing
that energy and exercising that power.
This i precisely what the international
gold truht seeks to prevent, and what it
has prevented thus far. The very existence
of American institutions is a standing
menace to the totteriug thrones of Europ;.
The opnitig of the. mints of the United
State to the free "and unlimited coinage
of silver at the ratio of 1G to 1 world
mean au increase in the world's vjljiuii f
money, "t would mean that with our
productive energy we could and wo lid
force European nations to the bimetallic
standard, or force them out of the tra-.le
niarket of tlie world. Hence it follows as
a logical conclusion that a victory if the
si!er forces will be followed by a war
between tlie United States and several of
tlie powers of Europe combined, the like of
which will be without precedent in Ike
annals or history.'
Less tlian five luinths after the publi
cation ol Mr. Ketney's foreoast, Count
Goluchow&ki, Austrian minister or for
eign affairs, and one of the foremost
statesmen of Europe, prophesied a great
struggle iietween Europe and America.
Re declared, as The Times' readers will
rememlier. tha the turning point had
been reached in European development,
which en Its for the unremitting atten
tion or the powers. The destructive
competition with trans-oceanic countries
which had' partly been carried on and Is
partly to be expected in th near future,
require prompt and thorough counteracting
measures. The nations of Europe must
stand shoulder to shoulder in the ap
proaching contest, and arm themselves fur
the snuggle by every means at their
disposal. The beginning of the twentieth
century, he said, would, unless some im
mediate means of counteracting the pre
vailing tendency were discovered and pus
in action, see bimetallism prevailing
'from the north pole to Patagonia, ami
when tnl.s linancial condition became ef
fective, the last hope of European In
dustrial competition with America would
Mr- Keeney 's forecait was widely
copied snd commented upon last July, but
Count Gohu-liowski's warning upon exactly
similar lines hns electrified all Europe and
aroused America as well to the exigencies
ofthesitustioii. Tueappealof the Austrian
statesman in more titan a coincidence; it
is a startling verification of the views and
arguments of the noted silver leader.
America is becoming more and more an
exporting nation and thereby the direct
rival and competitor of all Europe. With
its vast resources and increasing powers of
prcduftlon-the day is coming when we can
sell, at a profit, articles that are the means
of livelihood of whole communities in
Europe at a price Iestlian the cost ofEuro
pean production. When this takes place,
destitution, unrest, and the spirit of rebel
lion will fill the countries of Europe, threat
ening the very existence of the several
governments. They will be forced into
radical action to regain lost markets, which
will ii ivitnbly lead to arbitrary measures
agamst American commerce. This will
create friction which is likely at any time
to be increased to the breaking point. The
United States cannot stop exporting. Its
productive capacity, both of natural and
manufactured articles, lias already far out
run its now or of consumption. Thlscouutry
must exiiort to foreign markets, and It m ibt
bepreparcd to maintain Its rights, both asu
party to any issue and as a neutral.
There is now before Congress a measure
directly incidental to this policy of prepar
ation the annexation of Hawaii. The
chief markets In which the competition of
the United States will be the most de
structive to Europe will be the Asiatic
China, Siberia and Japan, together with
the South American republics. All of
our con merce to Asia must cross the Pa
ciric. directly past the door of Hawaii.
The nation that holds Hawaii controls the
north racifio and Its commerce.
Party expediency as well ns national in
terest it-quires Democratic bupport of this
measure. It has not been presented for
action in this particular instance by Demo
cratic initiative, but it is practically the
same measure that was initiated by the
Democratir administration of President
Pierce and Secretary of State Marcy, in
When seen at the Cochian by a Times
repoiter last evening, Mr. Keeney said:
"The recent utterances of Count Gobi
chow ski, taken in connection with the
attitude of the leading statesmen of ither
European countries, must convince .ev;ry
thoughtful and patriotic American of the
Impeiatlve necessity of the immediate

Seventh Street Line to Have an
Electric System.
II.! .-
Work to lb; lleKun as Soon ns Avenue
and Fourteenth Street -Lines Are
Completed No Transfers at Flor
ida Avenue, and Curs to linn
Through From Hlvcr to Park.
The" eutire system of the Capital Trac
tion Company of thlsclty will be transformed
into an underground electric system as
speedily as possible. The idea has been
considered and discussed In an unofficial
way for soma time, but not until the regular
monthly directory meeting held yesterdny
afternoon at the new union depot In George
town was any formal action taken.
The Seventh street cable line will be
discarded and 'a modern underground
electric svstem put In, and the U street
electric line will be taken up and replaced
with a -system which will be In confo?m'-ty
with therest of tlie system.
The work will not l.egin at once, but
immediately after the completion of the
work now under way on the Mount Pieis
ant, Georgetown and Navy Yard sections.
It is the desire of the directors, for many
reasons, that these branches of the road
be in running order as soon as possible.
First and paramount as a consideration
is the fact that the public is daily under
going a great inconvenience on account of
utter impossibility of rapid transit being
given by the present horse-car service.
Besides the proper serving of the pub-ic,
the directory ot the road Is desirous of
having the system completed us soon ab
pysMble for other and more substantial
rep. tons.
The rood Is now losing $1,000 a day.
The work of laying the feed wire conduits
is being pushed on the north, east and west
branches of the main line, and the work of
placing the contact rails m the main con
duits has been begun on the Fourteenth
sticet line. The General Eiectiic and jtn.?r
large construction companies, now man
ufacturing the ejectrical machinery Tor
the new system are under contract to rur
nis.li the cecessarv dynamos, etc., by the
early part ot the coming year, and it is er
taln that they will fulfill their part of the
As soon ns the work now In progrSb
has been finished, the work of instating
the Seventh-street line will bo commenced.
There are seM'ral reasons for the decision
of the company to, do this, chief 'imong
widen is the, Important one of economy.
ThodlreclorjNuresftW that It would have
to change tjie cable system eventually,
on account )f the- great success ot the
underground. electric sy.stem, and, to do
so they would albu have to move, their
cars by horses. .
The U Mrcet line will be entirely re
built and equipped with the underground
system along. Eighteenth street northward
from Florirtui avenue to tlie bydge at the
enrlance to the Zoological Park. That
portion of tha' road which Is now operated
by tiolley to .the point mentioned -vlll be
reconstructed with the underground ny.s-,
tern. When completed the entire Traction .
syHem, and all- im brandies, will be uni
form. The Intcntipn Is to abandon the
transfer hystem-t the cornor of Seventh
street and Florida avenue northwest, and
to run the Seventh street cars through from
the A rgenal to the Zoological Park. The
work will, it is expected, be finished by
tbn latter part of next summer.
By the time the Seventh street ine is
completed the company expects to lave
the bills now bcfoie the picrent Congress
npproed. The bills as they now Ktand
provide for tiie extension of the navy
yard branch, from Eighth stret and
Pennsylvania avenue southeast, along the
Aienue to the bridge and return.
The most important extension pro 'ided
foi in the proposed bill is the one known
as the Southwest extension. In this Is
to run the Georgetown cars from the
curve at the intersection of Twenty ii.th
street and Pennsylvania avenue south Aard
oa Twenty-sixth street to G street, cast
ward on that street to Seventeenth ttreet,
and Connect with the piesent line.
The return route will be from Seven
teenth and the Avenue down to P street,
west to Twenty-sixth street and north to
connect with the present line at yhe
Avenue curve. The proposed extension
would not interfere with the traffic on
the Avenue- from Seventeenth to Twenty
sixth streets, a.s that part would be nm as
u-ual as though the extension had not
been made.
The present bill also embraces a pro
vision for the extension of the Fo ir
teenth street line northward to Howard
avenue, weiaward to Seventeenth street
and bj a loop southward to Park street
and eastward to the present line at Four
teenth street.
Extending the SiRiial System.
Some time ago the Navy Department
determined to utilize a life-aving station
as a part of the proposed coast line slgnul
system The Treasury Department ob
jected to that the Navy Department will
now be confined to the ute of the light
houses, their keepers to manipulate the
semaphores and other signalling devices,
which are now being put into position.
Ihe whole seaboard is to be connected
telegraphically and telephonically, the
Navy Department still hoping to use the
life-saving stations for connecting points.

Trouble Brewing Between Coil
Operators nnd Miners.
Toledo, Ohio, Dec. S. There Is reason
to expect another piolonged struggle be
tween the coal operators of the Ohlo'ield
and the miners. Ono of the largest opera
tors stated to his representative here today
tliat no contiacts should be made for
delivery at the present rates after Janjury
1 By the agreement terminating the
last; strike, rates expired on that day, mid
the miners will then demand a 4 tent
acHancc pei ton. This will open op the
dispute over the Ohio nnd Pennsylvania
differential rate, and unless the operUors
ot the latter State agree to advance a'so,
Ohio operators will resist the dem-ind.
Torre Haute, Ind., Dec- 8. There Is good
prosrect for a movement on the part ot
the Indiana and Illinois r.perators and
miners to enter into a joint agreement
for a wage scale for the year beginning
January 1, regardless of the action of
the Ohio and Pittsbmg districts. No
explanation has been received here tor
delay in calling the interstate conference
for the middle ot this month.
Ihe miners do not want to secede Tiom
the national organization, but they wint
to be permitted to fix their own wage
scale in a field which it is freely admitted
on ali sides' Is not longer competitive
with the Ohio and Pittsburg fields.

nothing to do with the i lilt to the Senate

purely a rrlen-lly virtt, and a desire on the

Mr. Frank Chamberlain- the manager of
one or the New York elertric launch con
cerns, was in town for a short time on
Tuesday. He stayed a little while at
the Arlington, went out, did a little busi
ness, and then lert. Probably not more
than three people knew that he was hr
or what he came for. "When he wynt
away he carried In his pocket a contract to
build an electric launch for the C7ar of
Russia. This interesting Tact was only
learned yesterday.
The launch is to be ready Tor his imperial
majesty in April. It will be taken to
3t. Petersburg by one of the company's
experts before that time. The de
scription given or the crart is dazzling
It will be built throughout of mahoga 17
and finished in sumptuous style. The
price the Czar 13 to pay for hfcs lioat is a
diplomatic secret- Mr. Chamberlain rxn
pieted his contract with Gen. Mert
wago. the naval attache of the Ub.ssI.i-i
legation, with whom negotiations havt
been carried on for borne weeks.

Mr. A. C. Kaurman.ot Clarleston. S. C ,
Is at tl.p Raleigh. He is here in thelnterest
ot a bill, introduced duriug the extra es
blon, which provides for the estnblUa
meat of a soldiers home at Charleston.
There are seven Federal soldiers homes in
theUnited States andnoneof theinisluthe

Mr. Haufman said to a reporter for The
Times last night:
'The prospect has the indorsement of
promh ent Union soldiers all over tlie
South, and prominent Confederates as well,
though they will not partake or ito bene
Hts, of course. The Grand Army or the
Republic unanimously indorsed the project
at Buffalo. The home is to be estab
lished on Castle Pinckney Island, in the
Charleston harbor. It will be designed
as a memorial' to Major Robert Ander
son, the first hero of tne war, the com
mander at Fort Sumter, and alto the
man who rirst, in 1837. proposed ihe es
tablishment of a national home for dis
abled soldiers and sailors."
E. T Fitzgerald, labor commissioner ot
California, and representative or the Build
ing Trades Council ot San Francisco, came
to Washington yesterday, and is stopping
at the Arlington. His mission here is to
aid in securing remedial legislation, which
wilt make possible the punishment ot cer
tain violators of the eight-hour law at
San Francisco. This law is being violated
in the construction of tlie new postoffiu?
at that cltv, but the work is being done
by a company, and the company cannot be
arrested. Legislation will be asked, by
which the violators may be reached. It
is likely that a bill halving that end in
view will be introduced by Representative
McGuire. Another object which this labor
representative has in visiting Washington
is to consult with the officials ot the
Treasury Department, with a view to hav
ing the stone used in the construction ot
the San Francisco postoffice cut Mid
dressed iu that citj; At present, this
work is being done iu the East. It is said
to have Iten the rule that thestonecutting
and dressing shall be done in the city in
which the building Is located. This point
was raised by organized labor in the case
ot the Chicago postoffice, and the Treajury
Depurtmeut deferred to the wishes of the
local labor organizations.
Mr. Fitzgerald says that organized labor
in California is opposed to any further
immlgiatloii and desires the enactment
or legislation which will shut off the tide
of alleus foi ten years at least. Mr.
Fitzgerald is an annexationist. Organized
labor on the racifio coast is not afraid
of the competition which it is said by
some people will result from the annexa
tion of Hawaii. The workers on the
Pacific slope have more at stake in this
matter than their bretliren of the Kast,
and the lr.tU-r should have no fear of the
i esults of annexation ir California labor
has none
The Chinese who are in Hawatl now
were there before the Chinese exclusion
act .became operative, and had they de
sired to come to this country they c.uld
have done so then. Tlie Japanese """ho
aTe now In Hawaii could come to this
country it they so desired, so that the
annexation of the islands would make
no difrerence in this regard. Mr. Fftz
geiald hopes for legislation at this session
favorable to annexation.

Officers Elected for the Enssnlny
Year President Appleton.-, Ad-
dns- Association's "N'orls.
The American Forestry Association bekl
Its sixteenth aanoal meeting yesterday
and elected officers for the ensuing year.
In hie opening address Pr&stdenc Apple
ton said:
Fehuv- Members: 'Weareaseemhlect today
iu accordance wJH the requirements of our
constitution to use judgment aad discre
tion 'ii theelioioe of iliie wn analimtett
our interests and affairs during tne coming
year, and listen to aad act upon reports.
But article II of the constitution tells us
so vividly tlie objects we have In view
that I venture to refer to it because I na e
known tuat some memoers wereaciuaiuieu
witn its corneals, and beeao.se such ierr
euce stands a good chance of promoting
better acquahuuce with it.
Thereby we associate ourselves togtt'er
to promote aiscttbbion upon subjects relat
ing to tree-piaatnig, the conservation, man
agement and renaoval of forests, aim the
climatic and other influences that affect
their welfare; to encourage the collection
of forest statistics ami to promote the ad
vancement of educational, legislative r
other measures terwing to tin? promotion
of these objects. We shall especially en
deavor to centralize the work ilotte and
diffuse the knowledge gained m actorti
ancu with thnt object.
When we stop and think of the local
tltougtitlfssness and ignorance, separate
and in combination, everywhere, that acts
unwisely or prevents others from acting
wisely in forestry matters that have im
portant bearings upon the public and
private weirare. we fully realize the in
fluence for good that such an association
ns this of ours roust have in all part of
our great nation.
Our association should be of such value
in keeping the minds of our people alert
to the enils of intelligent forestry, and by
enforcing upon the minds of our fellow
citizens the important bearing that th
bureau over which the chairman of ur
exeeutlve committee so actively and
earnestly presides has upon the financial
ami bunns stanvt of this country.
Our rivers, our lakes, our water courses
and our water supplies; our game, eur
fish food; our climutic conditions, our
great timber supplies, and others, are to
exist for better or for worse, anil we
are going to be an important factor in
the future, as we liavp been in the past,
toward bettering this Condition.
The association adopted several reso
lutions, noting with extreme satisfaction
the sure indt'-ationi or an administration
Tor the National Forest Reserves in the
nKir future: recommending that all lands
or the United States more ravorable fr
rorest purposes than ror agriculture should
be withdrawn Trom disposal and admin
istered under the law governing forest
reserves: recognizing with pleasure and
approval the action of the State of New
York in making large appropriations for
extending the area of their State forest-,
and seeing In It the legitimate results of
the sixteen years agitation which this
association has devoted every effort: ex
pressing its gratification at the increasing
interest manifested by public-spirited citi
zens in rorest reservation, and thanking
the Cosmos Club for the hospitality ex
tended to them.
