If he was com pelled by fear to relinquish possession of the money, he was robbed and was not himself a robber. On the other hand, if he was, as is charged, a party to the theft and feared no injury, then no highway robbery was committed and none of the prisoners can be convicted of a more se rious offense than larceny, ti.e maximum penalty for which is imprisonment for five years.

The bankers of the lountry, he said, should gather some lessons from the trouble, and the lesson be euli rged upon was for hanks ( to prepare for evil when it was not p;es (ent;:u other words to be always rvady for trouble.

Coe, president of the American Exchange bank of New ; Yorfc, endorsed the proposition of the pre ceding speaker for the immediate creiitiou of a special committee from each state to ; effect the organization of a national mone j tary commission to represent the divei.-e i interests of the whole people, the aim of which should be the adoption of a sound j currency and bank ng system. The reso . lutions also asked congress to hold iu ' abeyance all projects for the amendment of existing currency laws, excepting the ' repeal of the putcha-dng clause of T e Sherman silver bi 1. W.

Oct VJ The apparently end less argument concerning the duke of Connaught and tae Egyptain campaign has beeu given fresh impetus by the Right j Hon. Hugh Childers, who was secretary of state for war in 1S80-S It was charged by special cor espondents that a telegram was sent to General Sir Garnet Wolseley, the commander of the British forces in Egypt, ordering him to -place the Duke of Con naught in a place of safety' during the bat tle of Tel-el-Kebar. It was also charged that in compliance with these instructions the duke, who was ou the right of the line with the Guards brigade, was with his troops ordered to the rear aud out of danger. The story had its origin in the Manchester Guardian. Mr. Childers has written a letter to that paper emphatically denying that any instructions or suggestions were dis patched to Egypt relative to the duke of Connaught. He incloses a letter received by him from General Wolseley declaring that the story is absolutely untrue. Gen eral Wolseley adds: "Nobody ever sug gested that I in any way deal with his royal highness differently than with the other officers commanding brigades; nor did I do so. He took his chance like every one else, and as I reported to you at the time I bad no better brigade .under my command, I am glad of the opportu nity of emphatically denying the absurd story, which is as ungenerous as it is un true."
