Milwaukee family Looked After
t'lve !. et Chat-ties.
MlLWAl kl.K. Dec 1 C In the course of
their investigation this week representa
tives of the associated cbarit ies found a
family that was being supported by a cer-'
tain church. A little later it was learned
that another church waa supporting tbe
same family iu complete ignorance of tho
fact that the household was receiving as
sistance from anyother source. One dis
covery followed mother until it finally
tamed out that this particular family
waa on the lelief list of no less than five
churches, each of which was contributing
in money and supplies an amount sup
posed to be sufficient to prevent tbe pov
erty stricken s-ople from suffering.
The queerest fact brought out in con
nection with the matter, however, was
that tbe children had been taken around
from one of the five churches '.o another,
and baptized in eacb of tbem for tbe pur
pose, it is supposed, of establishing tiea
that would make the family a special ob
ject of interest to each congregation. As
eacb church paid tlie rcut of tbe house oc
cupied by the family, or ratlin: furnished
tbe money to pay for it, it required seme
little ingenuity so make the rent days fol
low each other in prrrr succession.

SOME SILVER CHAT.
White Metal Men Surprised at
Voorhees Statement.
WAWi D AN ADMINISTRATION BILL
And Expected Vsorkees Wessurs (a Have
Cleveland' Keeogaltiaa, Whick It Has
Mot A Hint, However. That tke Eseca
tive Is Oissessbling a little Carlisle
Likely ta adars e Part af tke Voorhees
Bill Welcomed by tke Silver Mea.
Washington, Dec 16. Voorhees' denial
that tbe financial bill introduced in the
senate ay himself has the sanction of Pres
ident Cleveland's administration has cre
ated soma surprise among some senators
and otbers-wbo have kept informed upon
the financial question. The silver men say
they were led to suppose from what Voor
hees said during the debate on the silver
repeal question iu the extra session that
with that bill out of the way the adminis
tration would propoe e a measure for the
substantial recognition of silver as money.
and they had therefore expected that when
Voorhees should bring in a bill it would
come with the sanction of the president
and tbe secretary of the treasury. They
admit, however, that neither Cleveland
nor Carlisle has given out any utterance
to justify this expectation, and accept this
as confirmation ot Voorhees' assurance
that the biil is entirely his own.
Might Hide Its Sentiments.
There is a well grounded suspicion also
that it the administration should really
feel friendly to the bill the fact wou'd be
suppressed liecause of its supposed desire
to have foreign governments understand
that this country is committed to the gold
standard. It is asserted by the supporters
of the administration who are not antago
nistic to silver that it is the policy of the
presideut aud especially of the secretary
ot the treasury to thus force England,
Germany and other European uatious to
themselves seek a reuewl of tbe interna
tional uegnUatioos tor a more liberal use
of silver. This is in accord with assurances
made at the Brussels conference upon
Cleveland's behalf.
Another View of tbe (Situation.
If this is .correct the administration
would cettainly not commit itself to a
measure j.ro iding for the further pur
chase of silver evcu at a time as ren ote
in the future as that proposed by the
oorhees lull. It is also asserted that for
the same reason the administration would
not lie Jikely lo Aug'4rst legislation look
ing lo the revival cf the international con
ference. There are others not so friendly
to Cleveland who hold that be is on princi
ple opposed to any recognition of silver
whatever, and that without regard to
international co operation be would Cut
lend his sanction to tiny measure in tbe
inurest of that metal. This view does
not correspond, however, with the assur
ances given cut by his adherents while
the reeiil bill was under discussion.
Just What Carlisle Was Waitine for.
There is little room for doubt that Sec
retary Carlisle will indorse tbe first sec
tion of the Voorliees bill providing for tbe
coinage of the seigniorage He has been
anxious to fiud authority for such coinage
ever since the treasury deficit began to
make itself painfully manifest, aud soon
iter the adjournment of the extra ses
sion he undoubtedly had undercontempla-
tion the coinage ot this silver without fur
ther authority from couiiresx, believing
that the unrepealed portion ot tbe Sher
man act afforded that authority, lie
seems, however, to have changed bis mind
as to the wisdom of this pioeeeding, and
is now presumably wailing upon congress
to provide explicit legislation for it.
Tbe silver men welcome the measure as
basis fur tbe revival ol the silver discus
sion at the proper time, but say that ii It
should ever be passed it would be mater
ially amended.
SILVER LEADERS IN CONFERENCE.
They Hold a Secret feraveutlua with All
the Chiefs aa Hand.
The possinililies of a uew political party
with free silver coinage as the sole plank
of its platform was among the develop
ments of the day's tecret session of the
silver leaders, all thi promiuent men
nearly being present. There were Warner
and Weaver aud Field and Stewart and
Kolb aud Morton Frcwea tbe British
biuietallist; also. Sovereign, the new K. of
1 osier wurkuian. The day was devoted
to expression of opinion of representatives
of tne different states. They were uni
formity to the effect that the working peo
ple aud famse.-H were dissatisfied with tbe
course ot congress in repealing the pur
chase clauie ot the Sherman act. Jones
and Stewart, of Nevada; Master Workman
Sovereign, aud National Lecturer White
head., ot tbe Grange, were among tbe
speakers.
Duriug the address of Senator Joues an
interesting colloquy occurred between
him and Master Workman Sovereign.
The latter tug.csU-d that when the labor
rauks bad assisted toward securing free
silver there should be reciprocity by which
the silver leaders would assist iu securing
labor reforms. Senator Joues contended
that all labor questions were merged in
the money question and that its solution
would settle them all. Sovereign and tbe
senator at last met o.l common ground in
ngreeiug that tbe silver quesWon should
be made the araiuount issue of all labor
aud industrial organixatioas.
