' New York, Nov S England's lead ing representatives of high finance have been interviewed by the London correspondent of the Woild "relative to the election in the United States. The governor of the Bank of Ens-' land, Samuel Stewart Gladstou'-, said: "The Bank of England never gives opinions, but my personal view you are welcome to. McKiuley's election must have a healthy effect both liuan-c-ially and politically. I consider it, in the iim place, as a great security fai th e. peace of the world. Here, undoubt edly, the belief has been that if Bryan were elected it might mean disturb ance a::d uuaettleinent in tin; Uuaiieial world. Now we may look to a revival of, business and a strengthening of American securities." Hon Francis Banns, the working ehiif of the lirin of Baring Bros, said: "The good effect of McKiuley's elec tion lias been already reflected in tu. American market, where prices have hardened greatly. I believe lhat it will Increase confidence and that busi ness will necessarily improve. English capital will be more freely invested in American securities and "undertakings. As. to its bearing on bimetallism, that is too big a question to go into to-day. Sufficient for the day is the evil there of?. At the London office of the Morgans. Pierpont Morgan said: "1 consider that the settlement of the question is a relief to business interests both here and in America. The general effect on commerce and finance must be ex cellent. For the past fortnight prices have shown an upward tendency aud the general relief has been expressed by tlie further immediate improve ment. 'The silver movement has got its finishing stroke. The buying of Amer ican securities here is mainly for America. There had been a steady stream of buying for some time past, but now that McKinley is elected Eng lish money will also be forthcoming for American stocks.'' Sir Samuel Montagu, head of the well known bankers of that name, said: "In consultation with my part ners we agreed that if Bryan was elected Americans would immediately begin' to hoard gold., .apprehending some kind of silver legislation that would draw on our gold reserves, caus ing a striucency in the money mar ket. This fear has been removed by Mr McKiuley's election and now the drain of gold will stop: therefore the effect on the money market will be good. It will also improve commerce aud enhance sound American securi ties for investors and manufacturers who feared the possibility of Bryan's election and were uncertain whether they would be paid in gold or silver."

She had saved her pin money, the friend said, until S30 had been accumu lated and had then resolved -to come to New York. This confidant said that she thought Beatrice had come to this city on November 2. Letters written by Mr Lemson failed tn bring satisfactory information, and yesterday he came to this city to per sonally search for his lost daughter. Beatrice Lemson is pretty, about five feet three inches in height and has light hair and blue eyes. When she left home the girl wore a blue silk dress, and blue silk waist and a Tam O'Shanter cax.

It looks as if he might have have as long a spell of power as Sir John Mac-Donald. Not only is this French Canadian and enthusiastic British imperialist statesman one of the most inspiring and most useful personalities in the empire! but' the election attempts to turn race feeling to his disadvantage have deserved the severe defeat."

Much Speculation As to What It Was All About Said to Have Outlined a Coursu to' Pursue lor Balance of Their Terms When the aldurmen adjourned last nijiht. Chairmau Hull gave the repub lican ,ii em hers of - the hoard the wink and a few sutiundx later they were tucked away in the nute-room. talk ing" in a manner' which would lead one to believe that they had just com mitted some event Vrime and had met to plan a way out of the dilemma, aud feared that the tables and chairs about them had ears aud mijjht let the cat out of the ba.u. It was said thai they outlined a plan of action for the bal ance of " the year, including what should be done in reference to consolidation,-. the. annual appropriations, recommendations regarding transfers from one appropriation to another, and various other matters of more or less interest. Whatever way things may go for the balance of the year between the aldermen and thtj- "creatures," as General Kellogg termed the board of public works last night, it cannot be denied that, so far. the relations be tween these two bodies have been har monious to a degree, never before known since the introduction of the new charter. The aldermen, republi cans as well as democrats, have on all occasions manifested a disposition to help out the board of public works, and in consequence a vast amount of important work has been transacted in all parts of the city since the pres ent administration came into power, without any of the jars which have been so noticeable in the past. It was thought when Mayor Kilduff return?d to power that the old fights between his honor aud Chairman Hall that, were such a marked feature of the pre vious Kilduff adminisiration, would be renewed, but those who thoua-ht so erred in their calculations, and the pub lic has profited by the burial of the axe.. When Mayor Kilduff was at the helm before the aldermen lost no op portunity to trip him up. and on that account he was constantly acting on the defensive. This time the situation is reversed and everything goes like clock work. What caused th, change of front on the part of the aldermen? That's a question which probably one would not be far from answering cor rectly if he should say that It is due in a great measure to the fact that the aldermen are-'more conversant this year than ever before with the why and "wherefore of recommendations sent to them , by' the board of public works. Three of the aldermen. Messrs Mahaney. Rlakeslee and Chesson. are members of the board of public works and keep posted vnon what takes place there and are readv at all times to give their associates , in th alderm-anie chamber such information as they de sire as to why this petition was denied and why that one was acted uponJa vorably. It Is a good plan., too. and would have prevented lots of rows in the past between the aldermen and the board of public works if it had been nut into practice when the new char ter was. adopted.
