"We most cordially approve of the
plan of currency reform submitted by
the monetary -commission in the belief
that if enacted into law it would ac
complish as far as possible the results
contemplated by the commission, as
set out in the following propositions:
""First To remove at once and for
ever all doubts as to what the stand
ard of value in the United States Is,
and is to be.
"Second To establish the credit of
the United States at the highest point
among the nations of the world.
"Third To eliminate from our cur
rency system, these features which
reason and experience show to be ele
ments of weakness and danger.
"Fourth To provide a paper cur
rency convertible into gold and equal
to it in value at all times and places,
in which with a volume adequate to
the general and usual needs of busi
ness, there shall be combined a quality
of grewth and elasfcity, through which
it will adjust itself automatically and
promptly to all variations of demand,
whether sudden or gradual, and which
shall distribute itself throughout the
country as the wants of different sec
tions may require.
"Firth To so utilize the existing sil
ver dollars as to maintain their parity
with gold without Imposing undue
burdens on the Treasury.
"Sixth To avoid any Injurious con
traction of the currency.
"Seventh To avoid the issue of interest-bearing
bonds, except in case of
unlooked for emergency, but to confer
the power to issue bonds when neces
sary for the preservation of the credit
of the Government.
"Eighth To accomplish these ends
by a plan which would lead from our
K present confused and uncertain situ
ation by gradual and progressive
steps, without shock or violent change,
to a monetary system which will be
thoroughly safe and good, and capable
of growth to any extent that the coun
try may require."

The event relating to the North Atlantic

All the news from the squadron through

A large number or Insurance men, rep

District Commissioners yesterday on the

the industrial insurance companies would
be prohibited from doing business if their

THE nCHT TO BE 01 SILWEB
Mr. Hoar Makes an Important
Statement in the Senate.
IT WILL BE THE ISSUE IN 1900
The Mnssaehiih"etts',SenhW Admits
Thntthe Republican? Cannot Side
track It Messrs. Teller and Dan
iel Argue for "a1 Suit Treatment
of the White "Merai'.v
The declaration by Senator Hoar, of
Massachusetts, yestcrdav afternoon, on the
floor or the Senate", that the rinancial
question wojld be the issue in the cam
paign of 1900, was pleasing news to the
Democratic Senators- They have believed
for some time that the Republicans would
endeavor to trump up some other so
called issue, to draw the minds of the
voters away from the Issue of greatest
importance to the people
Senator Hoar made' the assertion tliat
the money question would be the issue
in the next Presidential campaign, so
emphatically tliat there was no mistaking
what he said. Coming from a man of his
standing in the party, the announcement
may bo considerd authoritative- Mr. Ho.ir
made it at the ' conclusion of Senator
Teller's s pooch.
The body, arter transacting the usunl
morning business plunged into the discus
sion or the Teller resolution, which pro
vides tliat the bond obligations of the
Government, Ioth principal and interest,
shall be paid in silver, at the discretion
of the Secretary of the Treasury. There
is no doubt of the passage of this resolu
tion, and yt its opponents are very vig
orous in placing themselves on record
Senator Teller made the opening ad
dress. He talked in his usual earnest
and forcible manner, and left no doubt
in the minds or those who heard him
that he was a sincere believer in the
wisdom of establishing silver as one of
the money metals ot the nation.
Mr. Teller touched first on the attitude
and policy of the present Administration
In reference to silver, as ascertained by
the expressed polioy of Secretary Gage.
Mr. Teller bald:
"The Secretary or the Treasury gives
this committee a summary of the amount
of currency that Is to be redeemed In gold,
and he puts It at $9:50,000,000, and to get
that amount he must include the silver
certificates, or the silver dollars themselves-,
one or the other, for there Is ouly
about $.'1-10,000,000 In greenbacks, and
a little over $200,000,000 in national bank
notes. Now, iu order to make up this
$930,000,000, he will have to include
the $100,000,000 in silver certificates.
Silver certificates are receipts for standard
silver dollars deposited in the Tieasury,
and are redeemable in such dollars only.
"Now, 1 want to call the attention of the
Senate to the position of a man who will
oppose tills i evolution on the ground that
ltis in derogation ofgoYxl morals to pay our
obligations iu the money that the law says
we may pay them in. Wliat i8 the ob
jection to doing tills'.' Today silver Is the
equal of go'd In every particular, and why
should we not pay In if." "When we have
millions or it in the Treasury, why should
we sell bonds'." Senator Allison prides
hlmseir that we are keeping this silver
at par with gold. Now, the bondholder
want even nore than that. Silver money
will buy just as much as gold, but they de
mand the gold, and' they do this, in my
judgment, because they want It the only
standard of value In this country."
Senator Ftirbankshcrc wanted Mr. Teller
to inform him if the Secretary of the Treas
ury was paying out only gold. Mr. Teller
replied that he was not a londholder and
had not the slightest idea, except that he
knew the gold disappeared.
Mr.Fairbanksthensnldthatou January 1
$9,000,000 worth or bonds fell due, and
that the Secretary of the Trpabury had In
formed him that nearly the entire amount
had been paid In money other than gold.
Mr. Teller then said: "We were told yes
terday by those opposing the resolution
tliat it was the heightor dishonor , and almost
if not quite akin to putting our hand into
the pocket of the landholder and robbing
him to pay these bonds hi any money but

Mr. Teller replied: "I realize the em
barrassment of the Senator from Iowa. I
realize that he led us in 1878, and that
I followed him. Not willingly, Mr. chair
manfor I was not a believer" in his
bill but I was a new man, and he had
been long n public lire and announced
himselt an ardent bimetalllst. I voted
for his bill with reluctance, hut I voted
for this resolution without reluctance
There were men here at that time who
had great experience, and who were
qualified to Instruct. I came here as a
bimetallist; I had never been in public
life, and had never dealt with these great
questions, but I had been generally in
formed on these things for years. I

that my whole life hns been that or a
student. I have burned as many mid
night lamps at1 anybody, and there was
not a question coming up that I did not
'try to ucquaint myself with." '
Mr. Teller then ftpoke of the gradual
decline of prices aiid the shrinking of all
kinds or property except gold, and predicted
a state of 'ndutrlnl shuery nB being not
far nlicad of the gold standurd nations of
Senator Hoar then made a short speech,
in which he said 'that this' question Avould
without doubt be the issue in the campaign
Senator Daniel was the la-t speaker or
the day, uipl did not conclude his reinatks
until long utter 'the usunl hour for ad
journment. He sain: "There lsmo .standard of morals
for one setor. men auu anotner for another
set of men. That wnich f 6tand for is tne
universal honor anil rectitude ot the men
who make contracts .'ind expect to redeem
them in the terms In wnleh they were made.
The wordsof thcopponentsof this resolution
imply that the laws for the government of
of the conduct of the officers of this Gov
ernment contain within themselves some
ttiiugrcpreheiislblf'andodins. They acknowl
edge that the law demands payment of our
obligations in either gold or Eilver, and yet
they say that a Secretary or the Treasurj
who would pay out silver would be dis
honorable if not dishonest. And they con
tend that the resolutions of the Congress or
the United Stateiiarc reprehensible in their
moral creed. Whatdeeper stain could be put
upon the character of this Government than
to contend that the men who support this
resolution to carry out the established luvr
of the land, will, in so doing, cust discredit
on the nai ion's honor?"
In speaking of the statement made by
Senator Hoar, that it was our duty to pay
back to the landholder exactly what we
received fronl him, Mr. Daniel said:
"May I not remind him that these !onds
were bought fort from t.0 to 7o per cent
or their face value-"
"The Senator from Massachusetts wants
to know," lie continued,''!! we Mould treat
our creditors like ppeculatorsV If the
law gives you the option, would you be
so dlsregardful of the high notion of honor
as to pay the bondholder a cheaper cur
rency, aud thus to speculate on him'.'
"I say, Mr. Plesident. there is a mani
fold answer to this question. In the first
place, there is no currency which we
could pay the bondbe'der In that lie would
not get back as good curir-nuyas he gave,
and iu the second place this option was
not accorded to these pet bondholders
it wa3 an option that is inherent in the
system ot currency established in the phil
osophical principles and in strict accord
ance with the Constitution tinder which
w,e Jive. This dption was a valuable
consideration', paid for in advunce, cash
down. If you will take up tile message
ot tle late President, Mr. Cleveland, in
whlqli he wrote to Congress In defense
of .his $02,100,000 gold bond Issue, and
you will find that, in seeking to induce
the Congress of the United States to allow
the word 'gold' to be written in the
bond, he held, up tills argument, that
ir that $02,000,000 were made a
gold debt Instead of a debt according to our
prior system, redeemable in either gold
or silver, it Would save this country the
enormous sum of $10,000,000. And if
3-ou will look upon thp debt which wan
fastened on this country by that adminis
tration, $12,000,000. you will perceive
that, according to the presidential cal
culations, this amount would have saved
something like $75,000,000 by agreeing
to put In the word gold. Now, then, If we
have an option today to discharge that
debt iif either gol'dor eilver, it is an option
for which we paid" cash down, but which Is
going into the pockets' Of those who con
ceded it to us.''
Mr. Daniel's speech cloi-ed the debate
for the day.

Guilty Man Cuuglit iu Baltimore.
New York, Jan. 26. At the time of
Angelo Carbone's conviction for the
murder of Matale Brogno, on Septem
ber 12 of last year, there was much fa
vorable comment upon the quickness
witli which the trial proceeded. It was
all over in eight hours, and Carbone.
was led from the courtroom vigorously
protesting his innocence. He was sen
tenced to lie in the electric chair at
Sing Sing, in the second week in Feb
There ,was a flaw, however, in the
court proceedings. The convicted man
was innocent of the murder. This fact
was settled by the receipt of a tele
gram today from Detective Sergeant
Petrosino, the Italian expert of police
headquarters. It was dated Baltimore,
and announced that Allexandro Ciaro
mello had been arrested and had con
fessed to the killing of Brogno. Instead
of going to the electric chair, the con
demned man will go to the witness
chair and appear against the self-confessed
Three policemen saw, on the evening
of September 12, 1S97, an Italian run
ning through Leonard street, pursued
by another Italian. At Center street
the fugitive fell. Instantly the pursuer
was upon him, kicking and striking at
the prostrate form with devilish fury
until the police dragged him off. The
man on the ground was dying. He re
tained consciousness long enough to tell
his own name Natale Brogno and to
gasp out, when asked who his assassin
was, "Angelo Carbone." In less than
half an hour he was dead of a stab
wound. Near where he fell lay a pen
knife, one blade of which was open.
The prisoner did not deny the owner
ship of the knife, and admitted tliat he
was Angelo Carbone, but positively af
firmed that he had not killed Brogno.
To the police, however, the case against
him seemed clear.
Late that night there came to the po
lice station a twelve-year-old boy, Jo
seph Carbone, who said that he had
been in Leonard street at the time of
the tragedy, and had seen . Brogno
stabbed. The wound in the stomach
was inflicted, he .declared, not by An
gelo Carbone, but by Allexandro Ciar
omello, who had jumped- out from the
shadow of a doorway as Brogno passed
and stabbed him. The police laughed
Young Carbone was not called as a
witness, and although a physician tes
tified that the fatal wound, could not
have been lriade with the knife, tjie
coroner's jury declared against the
prisoner, and he was tried before Jus
tice Smith on December 15.
At the trial Joseph Carbone told his
story of having seen Ciaromello give
the fatal blow. Testimony showing that
there was motive on Ciaromello's part
for killing Brogno, that Ciaromello had
exhibited a knife with which he de
clared his intention of killing Brogno,
and that he had boasted in Philadel

murder, that he had wreaked vengeance
on Brogno, was not admitted by Jus

Mr. John T. Mitchell yesterday entered
suit in equity against Stephen E. Essexaud
others, thc'ieirsor Teter Von Essen and

Commissioners from paying over to the

distribution ot which recently passed Con

"the pnblic white schools or Georgetown."
Mr. Von KRsen died many years ago, when
the ssliQoteof Georgetown were poorly pro
vided for. The $12,000 was never paid
over to Llieochool, and is now in the Treas

quest finally went to Congress, nndlast week

of giving the money to the schools ac
