A NFW mme IN DUCKHAM
In time midst of all this reckless struggle
for rIches and addiional territory It Is refreshing -
freshing to Inform you at least one hard-
headed , sensible man of influence In England
has been found to give this stupendous specu-
laton to ' make money for promoters its rIght
name. I refer to Mr. A. J. 13. WIlson , who U
year or so ago startled the world with his
exposure of some of the methods of the Bank
of England which led to a general slinking
of that institution and a change In Its man-
agement. In a conversation wlh Mr. \Vil-
son a few days ago I asked him what he
really thought of Mr. Hhodes and his Im-
penal schemes. "Oh . hIs plot Is big enough
to have IIeaEel ! the first Bonaparte In his
younger days. I do not thInk It a thing for
investors to meddle with , and when the admiring -
miring young bloods of the home press cry
'Ave. Caesar ! ' and bIdS fall do\n ant wor- i
shll this nEW hero In buckram , let investors
and taxpayers , and all good citizens button
"
up their pockets.
"It the scheme Is not likely to succeed how
do iou , account for royal dukes ' as ofcers
and the prince of Wales' endorsement ? "
" : oney has bean made out of Il for the
promoters. The operation of this nhodeslan
story of tfo 'golden fleece' would fill a vol-
ume , and r m brief recital of them would weary
you. These who seek to bolster up thIs com-
pany compar It to the East India company ,
but for my part , even If time comparIson was
a happy one , I see no analogy . A company
that fell heir to a rIch and , In Its way , highly
civilized empire , swarmIng with population ,
Is very different from a company whose only
possession Is uncultvated wastes , a few wIld
cattle and 'mineraI rights. . ' A charter hath
charms to turn the gold from John Bull's
pocle t. Mr. Rhodes and his friends knew
that gold there was In London , however they
mhht feel about Its presence In the African
territory The . secretary of state for the
colonies was approached for a charter In
1889 , I tlmink. . ' '
"Dut how could England give a charter for
land which It did not own ? "
"That Is easy enouglm 'fig Englanders'
never stop at trifles of that sort when dealing
with little fellows lIke Klug Lobengula. Amid
thce men were as near the throne as possible
with two noble prInces as flgureheads. In
drawing ill this charter they Included a
country nearly as large as Drlt'sh India-a
great waste bearIng a few biackarnoors. "
"Is there no wealth In thIs vast territory ? "
"There It no wealth In the Chartered com-
psny or In Its territory , except the wealh
which men must tel and sweat for , and
hlch , for generations , mostly costs In time
getting as mueh as It Is worth , Out the
men to toil are not yet on the ground , nor

An'lmportant phase of the silver question
was reachell today when the Hclchstag declare -
clare In favor of time resolution bubmlled
yesterday by Count yon lrbach , an
agrarIan leader , summoning another inter-
nalonal conference on the currency queston , :
Miriach's resolution instructed the federal
gonrment to Issue the invitations for an
.
Internatonal umionetam'y congress to tulle ac-
ton for the rehabilitation of silver as a cir-
culatng medium. Previous to Its adoptGn
Count vonPosadowsky-Wegner , secretary of
state for the Imperial treasury , In behalf cf
the government , declared its sympathy with
the object aimed at by the resolution. The
motion which was submitted to the nelchs-
tag by Mlrbach had received the signatures
national liberals , ulramontanes and mem-
hus of that body , comprisIng conservatives ,
national liberals . ulramontalnes and mem-
hers of other partes , Among the signers
were to be found not only the names of pro-
pro-I
fessed bimetalists , but other members 'who
ha\'e heretofore maintained 1 more or less I
neutral attitude on the question of bImetal-
lisni . One of the sIgners was tIme son of
Prince Hohenlohe , tIme Imperial Cimancelior.
HOPE FOR ADVERSE ACTION.
The bimetalsts who signed the motion
mton
want nothing more or less thln bimnetaihisni.
Out for the time being they have been prevented -
vented from formulating a motion to that
erect by the opposition of their own moderate -
ate colleagues , who do not desire an alteration
aleraton
of time gold currenc There Is a susplelon
afloat that the support of the later Is not
entirely genuine , hut has as its motive a de-
sir to bring about an International conference -
once , whose decision they believe , will he !
adverse to the reInstatement of silver , and
thus sette the question for some tune to
'orne. The result of the debate was foreshadowed -
shadowed yesterday _ when PrInce Hohenloho
Indicted the attitude of the goverment In a
carefuly worded declaration which he read ,
RS follows :
"Wihout prejudicimmg out Imperial currency ,
oao must confess that the difference In time
value of gold and silver continues to react
upon our commercial life . Following , there-
fore time tendencies whIch led to time ap-
polntment of a silver commissIon , I am
wllnl to conshler , In conjuncton wih the
federal governments , whether we cannot :
enter upon a friendly Interehange or opInion I
as to common remedial measures with tho' '
other states which are chiefly Interested In '
maintaining the value of silver. . "
When Mirbacim's motion came up In tIme
nelehstag this afternoon In Its regular order
the dlbeusslon was resumed by Siegel , a an-
tonll lberal , lie opposed the resolution and
urged that the Ilpresdon shoull not ho cre-
ated abroad that the Helehstag considered the
existing monetary syster unsuited to the
Interests of Germany , Ho was convinced
that Great Britain would take no put In any

lehter of time people's party said that
Hohenlohe was temporizing. Ils attitude Indicated -
dicated a desire on the part of time 10Vern-
ment to bow low before the agrarIans
( Lauglmter ) The vacillation was a danger
In such an important matter. Time Iresenl
resolution was an agrarian Intermezzo pre.
ceding the principal act-the protectionist
resolution or Count von Kanitz. I they
got nothing , the agrarians would stir up
such discontent as woul(1 ( no he allayed by

Count von Poadowslly.'Vegner , who rol-
lower I cuter , said that the ever-falling price
of silver was prejudicial to Intustry and to
the Gerr3n silver mines , Consequently , the
decline would tend to deprive a large body
or workingmen of their means of subsistence .
Even monometalsts adrlted that the de
precaton In time prIce cf silver was harmrul ,
" 'he Ilremier amid mlnlsler of fnance of
France I had ltated that France must revert
to time double Itandard and that Germany was
reponilhle , because I first began the use or
the gold standard The rural ) opulaton be-
leved that the fall In the price of silver was
answerable for the drain In the 'alne of the
produets. This opinion was shared , more-
over , by many manufacturers. Therefore , I
was the duty of the government 10 return

" \ \ made n rich discovery ou our war
south. 1 had heard of a river that ran mm-
del a mountaIn where the great god of the
Galas , Waco , had carved a plco for hlm-
self. As we were not far from It , Mr. Giet
ant I made an excuse that we whhed to shoot
I' !
elephants which abounded there. Wo made
a hard push , and to our surprise discovered
i
the most beaulful subterranean passage It
woul ] be possible to imnagire. A large tribu-
tory of the river Juba had carved a way for
itself a mile In length under a mountain. On
either side of time stream were great vaulted
chambers from 1 twenty-five to 1i0 feet high
"nd"u porledon-m4salvo columns. The-col.-
ums were most prnately carved by the
waters and many would form long arched
passagos. Time mountain was holowed a
great distance on the other side of the
stream. I have named them the caves of
W'ndlawn.
"The greater part of our jourey has been
through the richest country , from an agri-
cultural poInt of view , I have ever seen , and !
the climate would suit an European farmer I
exactly . There are sIgns of much previous
cultivation . but little land Is cultivated at
present. Time owners have been Idled oft , as
Is evident by the human skeletons lying
ahout. For every "Jag that Is inhabited
there at least six that without
are are wlhout own-
ers. All about these vIllages there are large
areas that were highly cultivated five years
ago , and even more recently before the
Alyssynlans grabbed time land and slaughtered
the natives. We have a long journey before
us and It will probably be several months
before we reach Lake nudolph.

IIT'SBUIG , Kan. , Feh IG-Tho regular
Santa Fe assenger train was wrecked ! just
outside time city lmits this evenIng , and
several of the passengers Injured. None of
them , It Is thought , will die. After bllug removed -
moved from the wreck , the Injured passengers -
gers were ! lstrlbuted over the city , malcng
It Imllosslble to get un accurate list of those
hurt As far as obtainable ! the list Is as
follows :
Conductor Hamsa , internally Injured.
George Davis , 1 boy , leg mashel.
Miss Dertha Garver , side puncturCl by
brollen tmber amI otherwise badly Injured
Under Sheriff 11 Adsi , both logs broken , ,
arm located , cut about the face.
Irs. Dr. M. Ii. Johnson , leg broken , face
and body bamhiy cuI.
Son of Mrs Johnson , Injured immternally .
body mashed anti car cut or
Joe Ennis , leg broken cut about time face
and appears to h Injurel internumily.
Miss Laura James , leg and both arms
broken : ugly hole In her head.
The accIdent occurred just outside the city
limits , at the junction Pf time Santn Fe ,
. Missouri - . . . Pactc amI the Kunfas City , Mcmii-
phIs' & Gulf roads. A Missouri Pacific coal
train was swichIng , and the englnCr looked
back for signals , tailing to see time approaching -
preaching Santa Fe passenger going north.
The coal traIn struck the tender of the
Santn Fe . Ihrowlng time entire passenger
train except the engine to time bottoni of
a fifteen foot embanlunent. Every person on
time Santa Fe train was mere or less injured
and the wonder Is that nobody was killed.
The Injured wcro removed as quickly as
posslblo to time ' houses In the neighborhood
and cared for. Tim wrecked train was the
regular Santa Fe passenger , which arrives
hero at 5:05 : and returns to Girard. The
passenger list was fortunately ligimt . So far
as learned none of time crew wIth the excep-
ton of Conductor Ham SlY were Injured ,
Ooth crews put the responsibility for the
mishap on the other. I Is said the Mis-
sourl Paclte engneer : signaled for time cross-
lag before the Santa Fe train was wihin
