An American Finds the French
Fault of the People te Distinguish Gov
ernment Frem Its Servants.
JTew Outside of Franee Have a Concep
tien of the Dangers of the Situation
A Revolution Thought te De Im-
mlnenU-Koglnecr Ktflel Talks.
Paiub, Dec 31. The political peril of
France does net diminish. These who
are best informed and whose judgment
is soundest are the ones who fear the
worst. The head of one of the greatest
banking houses in the world, with
headquarters in Paris, said te one of
the American delegates te the Ilruesels
cenference: "I believe we ere en the
ove of a revolution. Few eutside of
France have conception of the dangers
of the situation. The temper of the
pcople is net understood. They can
net and will net discriminate between
the government itself and the indi
viduals, who represent it."
It is new generally understood that
the popular mind must be further ex
asperated by mero revelations of cor
ruption in high places. The Panama
story has net half been told. Every day
odds a fresh chapter. A feature of
great interest te Americans will prob
ably seen be mode known. It involves
.a banker of world-wide reputation, as
well known in New Yerk as in Paris.
4Ie Is said te have been a heavy benefi
ciary of the Panama Ce. without having
rendered any tangible pre qua Rumors
about him wcre circulated in high
financial circles some months'age. At
that time he took an active interest
in the proposed monetary conference.
He was Indiscrete enough te show
a letter en the subjet writ
ten te him by Socretary of
the Treasury Fester. The effect was
te discredit te some extent American
motives in calling the conference, and
'the co-operation of the strongest French
financiers was almost lest It is need
less te say that the reports connecting
the banker with the Panama scandal
were entirely unknown in America at
the time. Slnce then the gentleman
has net been In American interests in
international plans. In certain finan
cial quarters Tuesday reports were cir
culated questioning the stability of his
firm. The rumors were net credited in
the best Informed circles, for though
certain losses, amounting te $10,000,000,
are ascribed te the firm, its entries
are mere than sufficient te meet them.
It has been reported for a day or two
that Eiffel had lied te avoid arrest A
reporter found him at Rue Rabelais.
"I have net run a way, "said he, sharp
ly. "I am ready te account for my
conduct If I have been successful in
my transactions with the Panama com
pany it Is nobody's business. I never
attempted te bribe any member et par
liament If I gained enormous profits
the money is quite safe where nobody
will get it, and my family will net be
in need if I should be unjustly molest
ed." It is currently reported that Eiffel
recently withdrew 9,000,000 francs from
thcUank of France and transferred prop
erty te his wlfe amounting te 0,000,000

Archblihup Ireland Denounces the Canten
St. Paul, Minn., Dec. 2L The in
vestigatien by an expert of the Canten
church wludew was made partly at the
request of Archbishop Ireland. The
archbishop afforded special facilities
for such an investigation. The result
has been te prove ,the falsity of all
claims made In regard te this "mlracle
window. It is new probable ,that the
Assumption church at Canten will
be closed, at least temporarily. wnen
the fact was stated te Archbishop
Ireland that during the last three days
there had been a ronewal of the special
train service for carrying pilgrims te
Canten, the archbishop uttered an ex
pression of sorrow. lie believed that
there had been fraud conniving or abet
ting it either en the pari of Father
Jenes, but thought it likely that the
priest might have erred in being tee
"Is it safe te say that the church will
be closed?" was asked of the arch
bishop. "Yeu rany say that no time will be
lest in checking the pilgrimages."

Washington, Dec 21. Seme valuable
Information relative te European labor
was glven the joint committee en immi
gration Tuesday which, met te consider
Senater Chandler's bill te suspend im
migration for one year.
Walter Griffin, agent of the United
States at Llgerne, France, who made a
tour of the principal countries of Eu
rope for the purpose of considering
labor conditions, said he discovered
after a searching investigation, that
secret societies existed among the work werk
ingmen Jn many countries, many of
them befng criminal in their nature
In Switzerland the workmen were
thoroughly organized and strikes were
rare In Italy Mr. Griffin found a most
deplorable state of affairs. The upper
part of Italy centnlned an honest and
energetic people, but they did net im
migrate. Immigration was confined te the
lowest and worst class of Italians;
who wcre oemmunists and socialists,
the great majority belonging te se
cret societies criminal in their intent
and which the Italian government
had in vain tried te suppress. Twe
hundred thousand of these people left
Italy last year, most of them going te
America. , They believe the United
State is the haven of the world and will

Washington, Dec 21. The $75,000
paid by the Chilian government in set
tlement in full for all claims arising
out of the Baltimore affair at Valpa
raiso was covered into the sub-treas
ury at New Yerk Tuesday. The draft
for that sum was brought te this coun
try by Minister Egan in October last
It was drawn en the bank of France,
and called for payment thirty days
from date of presentation. Mr. Egan
gave it te the secretary of state. It
then went te the secretary of the treas
ury, by whom it was sent te the assist
ant treasurer at New Yerk. Its nego
tiation was then intrusted te Sellgman
& Ce., bankers, by whom collection was
duly made through their agents In
Paris, and this part of the transaction
was closed by the deposit of the money
at New Yerk Tuesday.
These necessary preliminaries having
been performed, and the money being
in the actual possession of the govern
ment, arrangements will be made as
seen as possible for Its equitable distri
bution te the people for whom it is In
tended. This important branch of the
transaction Is in the hands of the secre
tary of the navy, and it is expected that
the matter will be closed up satisfactor
ily during the present administration.
