Wasliington, Sept 3. Mr. George M. Coffin, acting comptroller of the currency, is confident of a most prosper ous finhncial season for the United States in the hear fu ture. In an interview with a Star reporter today, he said: "There is every evidence that the United States is accumu lating a vast amount of capital of its own" and this goes to show that sooner or later, if it is not already so, this country will be financially independent of Great Britain or any other nation. The current rate for demand loans in New York today is 1 per cent against a slightly higher rate in London and it is not at all improbable that under these circumstances New York bankers are load ing money in London. "In spite of the enormous loss and depreciation in values sustained by the United States during the past four years, the latest bank statistics show that there has been a very large accumulation of capital in this country, much of which is lying idle in the banks awaiting favorable opportunity for investment. "This same conditiorf of af fairs undoubtedly exists m the other banking institutions throucjnowt the States of the Union. There has been a wnnde.rfnl accumulation of capital in the savings banks. "One result of this enor- mous accumulation of capital will be lower rates of interest for the future. t om er that this will come, and my opin ion is held by many bankers throughout the country. I do -not believe we will see ao-ain as his:h rates of interest as have prevailed in recent years. . e ENGLAND'S WHEAT SUPPLY. It Is Estimated To Be 2,000,- 000 Quarters Short Last Year.

Nicholas II takes a long stride Forward in His Desire to Be Humane. London, Aug. 31. Nicholas n has taken another long stride in his course as a hu mane monarch. News comes from St. Petersburg this morn ing that the czar has decided upon the partial abolition of the exile to Siberia of criminals and the substitution therefor, of confinement in large central prisons in Russia. The change will become effective a year hence. The Chronicle publishes dis patches from the Russian capi tal this morning giving the news of the czar's determina tion. The abatement of the Sibe rian abuses has been one of the chief aims of the youthfal ruler of Russia since his acces sion to the throne. The advanced position taken by Nicholas tgas fully exploit ed by Consul General Karel, representing the United States at St. Petersburg, in a recent interview while that official was in Chicago on leave of ab sence. "Let me tell you," he said, "thai the people of the United States kribw very little about Russia. It is a great country; it is a second United States. We have every kind of climate that this country enjoys. The Russians are a fine people, though conservative aiid slow. They are a happy people, and strange as it may seem, they believe that their goveinmeh. is better than that of the Unit ed States. They prefer their own government to that which we enjoy. "You can not imagine how the people love the czar; the peasants actually wept when the late ruler died. And they like the young czar. He is do- ing well, although h6 has been criticised for refusing to grant a renreseutative branch of the government, and for refusing to relax the strictness of the preS3 censorship. Bat he has done much, and I believe he will do much more as he comes with advancing years to act with greater independence. He has very largely followed the ad vice of the old councilors who surrounded his father, and they kepi pretty much in the old lines "However, the decree that hereafter no one shall be sent to Siberia without trial wa"a a great step in the direction of a liberal policy in goverement, and I believe that other steps will come in time." Mr, Karel's belief in the lib erality of Nicholas seems to be well founded. The horrors of Siberian exile made familiar to Americans by George Ktn nan's vivid lectures promise to be wiped out ay the young man who set all Europe talking last week by his reception of the president of France. - Kennan'a descriptions of life in Siberia have caused more discussion of the system under j which the mines are conddcted than those of any other travel er. So enraged were the Rus kian authorities at what Ken nan said and wrote that the magazines containing - his stories were prohibited in the czar's domains. The traveler was accused of being an ingrate and it was said he had not only esagerated but wilfully per verted the facts. Notwithstanding the denials of the Russians, Mr. Kennan's stories made a dpep impression in the land, as well as in other continent, and men who have watched the Siberian prison Bystem do not hesitate to say that the daring American news paper man is responsible for many reforms. Whether Czar Nicholas II ha3 pondered over and acted because, of the shudders of hor ror that have gone up on ac count of Siberian tales can only be guessed. &ONEY TO INCREASE TRADE. Twelve Million Dollars Expend ed by Merchants Brought to New York Through the E forts of the Merchants' Association. New York, Sept. 3 It 13 es timated that at least twelve million dollars have been spent in this city during the last three months as a result of the effort to bring trade by the Mer chants' association. Of this amount, ten millions were ex pended with wholesale dealers and two millions with retail dealers, hotel and theater man agers. It is also estimated that 200,000 people have been brought to this city, not all of whom were merchants, of course, but many friends and members of their families, through the reduced rate.3 ob tained by the association from the railroads and steampships. These persons came from all of the middle states, the south west a"nd the south, and had it not been for the inducements offered by the Merchants1 asso ciation it is probable that more than two-thirds of them would never have made the trip.
