SILVER IN REICHSTAG.
Resolution For an International Monetary Congress. ROSEBEET ACCUSED OP JINGOISM Keary Laboncliorp Poos Not Like the Tre uairr's Attitude Toward Home Knie and the House of lairds—Minister Gray's Body Started Home From tJie City of Mexico—Foreign Gossip. Berlin , Feb. 17 —Count von Mir bach (German Conservative) introduced a resolution in the reich s tag instructing the federal governments of Germany to issue invitations for an international monetary congress to take measures to bring about the rehabilitation of silver a« a circulating medium. Mirbach said that the moment had now arrived for Germany ta take the iniative in settling this question which is of great import ance. Bimetallism would cause the raise of all prices in gold, when gold was the currency. Agriculture would be ruined if the present system was maintained. America would either ab sorb Germany's gold or adopt a pure silver standard and capture the whole »astern trade,. Other supporters of the resolution indorsed the position that Germany had taken at the Paris mone tary conference in 1883, namely that ehe regarded an international agreement upon a ratio between gold and silver as desiral >le. Favored by Herbert Bismarck. Dr. Theodore Barth (German Radical Unionists) sa» i the Brussels conference had proved a fiasco and the conference in Germany in 1893 was fruitless. There was little or no connection be tween the depression in husbandry and and the introduction of the gold stand ard. Count Herbert Bismarck said the failure of the Brussels confer« nee was partly due to the absence of an entente between the powers which took part of it. The Berlin conference of 1*78 ar rived at a result because Great Britain and Russia had previously reached a basis for an agreement. An interna tional entente upon the currency ques tion would be arrived at in the course of time and in the case of Great Britain the feeling was growing in favor of bi metallism. In conclusion Count Her bert said: "It gives me great pleasure to show how warmly my friend Balfour lias taken up the cans« in that country. " Herr Schoenlank (Social Democrat) contended that the introduction of bi metallism would lead to a fall in the value of currency and would promise nothing but a hopless future to the workingman. Dr. Lieber (Center) said the Centrists willingly supported the measure because they saw in the pro posed conference an attempt to remove the difficulties in regard to the monetary standard—a question which was of par amount importance to commerce. Chan cellor Von Hohenlohe delared that he was inclined to favorable consideration for a proposal for an interchange of views on the subject with those states which were concerne' question.

London , Feb. 17. —On the resumption on the address in reply to the queen's speech opening the session of the house of commons Friday, Joseph Chamber lain offered an amendment declaring it was contrary t<> the public interest for the time of parliament to be occupied in the discussion of measures which, ac cording to the minister's own state ments. had no prospect of passage into law. while proposals involving grave constitutional changes had been an nounced on which the judgment of par liament should be taken without delay. In speaking of his amendment, Mr. Chamberlain said lit" refusal of the government to disclose the terms of their proposed resolution against the house of lords was disrespectful to the house. The government was tottering and could no longer represent the inter ests of (îreat Britain in councils of Europe. Neither could it enact meas ures for the enforcement of its domestic policy. Herbert Asquith said it would not be the government's fault, but that of the house of lords if the measure did not be come a law. Henry Laboucliere said his party was dissatisfied because a leader, Lord Rosebery, who was a mem ber of the house of lords, had been planked upon them. II • blamed Lord Rosebery for pandering to the "jingo" party. There had undoubtedly been a change in the attitude of Liberal offi cialdom since the retirement of Mr. Gladstone, both in regard to the home rule and the position on the house of lords. The change was due to the in fluence of Lord Rosebery. Mr. Labou cliere warned the government the coun try iiad n> it changed it* view of the question, bat demanded the abolition of the house of lords. He urged the gov ernment not to pursue a course which would surely lead to disaster. Rescued Fourteen Missionaries.

Certain fixed rules have prevailed and are likely to prevail as regards letter writing, but no law has been laid down, even by Dame Fashion, as to what size or shapo of paper and envelopes, what thickness or what color is correct. Un ruled paper is of course the only thing possible. To write with lines implies, to put it very mildly, a neglected edu cation. The noto or letter stamped with the hall mark of good breeding is gen erally on a medium sized cream tinted sheet absolutely without any fragrance savo a very faint one of orris root Bright blue paper or bright purple has lately been shown at the stationers' shops, paper that will fold not into square but into oblong envelopes. It is a fancy that will not last. Crests, mon ograms and coats of arms are all more or less affected, but the favorite orna mentation on any paper is the address stamped at the top of the first sheet in clear, distinct letters, not script. On the envelopes there is never anything put. There was an attempt to have the address also on the back of the envel op«, but tradespeople adopted the plan at once, and it was then tabooed as bo ing too professional. All sizes of paper ought to bo kept on hand on a well appointed writing ta ble. Letter paper of good size, note pa per, medium and very small, and even a few of the cards which lit- into square envelopes should be within easy reach, and there should also be some thin large paper or pads for common use. Paper is much cheaper than it used to be, so there is very little excuse for untidy letters written 011 half sheets and folded into envelopes that do not at all corre spond in color or shape. Writing pads are capital things to use. The finest qualities of linen paper come in these pads of the right size to go into the small square envelopes, and when there are a great many letters to be written it is much easier to write them on a pad than to sit down at a writing table to do it. It is always smart looking to seal a note or letter with sealing wax. Red, black and pale blue are the best to use. Postal cards are not in favor for cor respondence. They are used only in giv ing orders or for business purposes. Writing with quill pens is not so much of a fad as at one time it threat ened to be, but clear, legible handwrit ing should be cultivated. Colored inks are not used. Jet black is decidedly the thing, according to Harper's Bazar, which is authority for the foregoing. What the Irrigationists Want. After a long and very animated de bate the Denver convention adopted a comprehensive plan for reaching con gress. It provides that the new national committee shall draft certain bills, the purposes of which are to be as follows: Repeal of desert land laws. To withdraw from settlement all lands, except mineral, for which water is not accessible. States to be permitted to select recla mation lands as security basis for irri gation works, titles to remain in the federal government until it passes from the state to the actual settler in 40 acre homesteads. State s to make hydrographie divisions of such lauds. States to have proper irrigation de partments. A national irrigation com mittee to be created. .The territories to receive a million acre bounty provided for arid -tates by the Carey law. International commissions to settle stream and water questions between the United States, Mexico and Canada. State legislation is recommended to unify irrigation and water administra tion. State conventions to discuss the million acre state grants and their prop tr use are proposed. The judicial and divisional water îontrol adopted by Colorado and Wy aning are recommended as models.
