THR5E BILLS BEFORE CONGRESS All Have the Same Idea in View to Maintain the Parity of Exchange. Washingnon, Jen. 12.—Secretary of the Treasury Gage, Horace White of New York and several other prominent finan ciers today appeared before the house committee on coinage, weights and meas ures at the request of the committe and gave their views on the .Overstreet, Levy and Hill bills to maintain the parity of the money of the United States. The three bills, although containining differ ent provisions, each provide for an ex change at the option of the holder of gold and silver coins of the United States. To accomplish this the Overstreet bill an, thorizes the secretary of the treasury to use the gold reserve fund in the treasury and the Levy bill authorises him to use 2 per cent bonds. Chairman Southard read a letter from John Rhoades, chairman of the finance committee of the New York chamber of commerce, heartily indorsing the bills and urging the enactment of the proposed legislation at this session of congress. Secretary Gage said that the question involved in the bill before the committee was simple. He agreed with Mr. White that in times of dullness of business de pression the bankers and other holders of money in the ceuters of population would gradually witbold gold and allow silver and silver certificates to pile in the treas ury through the payment of customs duties and taxes If congress failed to make gold and silver exchangeable, it implies a doubt, no matter how slight it might be, existed, which the bankers and holders of money refused to take the risk. 'Why should they take the risk?" he asked. "If you refuse to remove it, why charge them with responsibilities you will not take?" he asked, strixing the table emphatically. Secretary Gage said that his experience had taught him that if a mau showed the slightest inclination to evade responsibility for enterprises he had undertaken, he was hurt in his com munity. It was the law of life, he said, and it was a progress law. He saw no risk in the government removing every doubt as to its policy and purpose Mr. Cockran of Missouri asked the sec retary if silver was to be made redeem able in gold why it would not be better from the standpoint of economy to sell the silver and place it in the gold fund for redemption purposes: "If it could be done without seriously disturbing the money markets," replied secretary Gage, "I think that course would be more honest." Cycle Show. New York, Jan. 12.—The sixth an nual show of the National Cycle Exhibi tion Company began ' today at Madison Square Garden. It will be continued all next week. Interest in the event each year increases, and the cycles, motor cy cles and automobiles in the exhibition ■how some entirely new improvements which every rider of a wheel and every admirer ot an automobile desire to see. The chainless wheel was an experi ment a few years ago; now it is beyond that stage. The 1901 models are a revel ation. The motor cycle has come into vogue and is asserting its importance as a labor saving machine for long dis tances. Expert riders on the motors show them in action at the Madison Square Garden. The automobile takes its place in the exhibition by popular de mand. A hydro car and an autoette are also novelties. The exhibition is com plete in everything that appertains to cycles, motor cycles, autos and accessor ies. Business and American Fathers. There is a clear lesson in the story told by the captain of a police precinct in New York. One evening a man came to the station bouse, asking if any lost children were there. Three were asleep in a back room, and the man went in to see if bis own was among the number. He awakened a boy between 2 and 3 yean old and asked of him if he were Johnny So-and-So. The little fellow be ing very sleepy and frightened, could not be made to answer, and the man turned away,, saying he would have to ■end his wife over. "What! do you not know your own child?" the police offi cials asked. "To tell the truth I don't," the man replied. "I work on the—— line of street can; the children ain't up when I go away in the morning, and they're in bed when I get beck at night. I never see them." Later his wife ap peared and identified one of the children. It was not the one the father had picked out. Plow Trust Sure. New York, Jan. 12.—Charles R. Flint will next, week, it is reliable reported, close a deal for the formation of a trust in plows and cultivaton, whereby plows will be advanced in price not less than ten per cent. The negotiations bave lasted over two years. Bx-Judge William A. Vincent has secured sixty Written options on the largest plow and cultivat ing concerns in New York, Illinois, In diana, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin! These concerns control the plow business today. However there have been many bitter wars in cutting prices and compli cations have come to the front in export ing goods to Mexico and European countries. Agents have led a merry war of cutting prices with the Mexican trade until the profit has been wiped out. Grand Prize Singing. Brooklyn, Jan. 12.—Under the direc tion and inititative of the Haydn Maen nerchor there will be a grand tourna ment of song tonight at the headquarters of the Maennerchor.

Vanderbilt having last evening given his bachelor friends a farewell supper at The SicsUrs," his fiancee, Miss Elsie French will say "Good bye, Girls," to night to the large circle of young lady friends at Harborview.

WHAT WILL VICTORS NOW DO? Trouble Aati c l p atsd In the Final Ad justment of Rival Claims of Al lied Powers. Paris, Jan. 12.—aa a result of inquiries in authorative quarters, the following statement is given ont in regard to Chinese situation: "The Chinese plenipotentiaries signed the joint note yesterday, thus concluding the preliminary stage of negotiations." . It was added that this important step was insignificant compared with the diffi cutties to be met with between the pow ers themselves, whose clashing interests will have full play in the coming discus sion. The United States' proposal to shift the seat of negotiations finds no fit vor in the European chancellories. Three reasons are given for this opposition: Pint—It is considered a great ml«t«fcp to transfer the negotiations from Qhif »n, where all the information is at hand re specting the situation, and considering the feeling among the Chinese them selves, more especially regarding the con ditions of trade and commerce, with which the negotiations will be chiefly concerned. Second—The United States commerce with China is comparatively small when compared with that of several other countries. Therefore the United States is not entitled to expect the negotiations to be carried on at Washington. The third and most delicate reason ad vanced is that the European powers have not felt sufficient confidence that the United States government might not find itself influenced in the negotiations at Washington by the pressure of inter ests having an eye to the exploitation of China. The attitude of some of the pow ers, moreover, is swayed by other motives in opposing the United Sûtes' proposal. Gust BriUin, for example, which seems to be the most strongly antagonistic, has probably taken into consideration the United Sûtes attitude toward the Clay-. ton-Bulwer treaty. Salt Lake's Big Convention. Salt Lake, Jan. 12.—The call for the National Live Stock convention, which will assemble in this city on the 15th inst. is of such a comprehensive character that it is claimed that it will bring together tbe largest convention tbe association has ever held.
