The contention of Colonel Gardiner , which Is also the conten tion of the "regulars" of the republican party , Is that no man who has not a respon sible parlj behind him should be entrusted with tire anmln'stratloi ' > of a city's affairs. "Our Oglit , " ( .aid Colonel Gardiner , "Is tvlth Lou Low represents the Strong ad- in'ilstratioii ' , " ho continued ; and then he proceeded 10 charge the present city govcrn- mc it , which was the outcome of a uon-par- * lsiii movement , with adding $10,000,000 an- niiftlly to the cxpcrihes of the city.

Thus tnc contest may bo regarded as In rome measure. a btruggle between partisans and iviii-pnrtiKiiiB , the latter being rcpre- I nted by the Citizens' union and the former by tl.o democratic and republican jarty or ganizations , although the forces of the de mocracy arc divided between Van Wyck and George. J'ARKHURST TAKC3 A HAND. The entrance of Rev. Dr. Parkhurst as a combatant Is one of the notable Incidents of the campaign Dr. Parkhurst Is In Switzer land , but ho has written a letter on the is sues of the canvass. He finds himself sup porting Low , In splto of the latter's avowed opposition to sumptuary laws. What the clergjinan finds to approve most in. the col lege president Is his declaration of Independ ence of party and Individual dictation. To Dr Parkhurst's thinking "PUttlsm , " as he terms the republican organization , Is more to bo condemned than ' Crokerlsm , " which rep resents the regular democracy In the mu nicipal campaign. If tire last one of the CC1.000 registered Voters of Grea'er New YorU It not out at tire polls on November 2 It will not be for lack of exhortation and that of all shades end degrees of eloquence. U Is doubtful If there WJB ever a local canvass In whlclr men of moro note took active part , than are par ticipating In the pending campaign.

When the conference was over Luetgert was taken back to jail. No agreement was reached at the confer ence. State's Attorney Denserr vigorous ! } opposed the demand that the prisoner bo re leased on ball , and the upshot of the argu ment was that no formal demand for the pr.soner's admission to ball was made. Ex-Judge Vincent said he would let thu matter rest for two or three days and then make formal application. He nddcd that If the formal demand was dcnl d .1 writ of habeas corpus would be applied for If this action Is taken State's Attorney Dcneen says ho will at once put the Luetgert case en trial again and It Is among the possibilities that he may again bo on trial for his life by the middle of next week. Speaking of the prospects of a new trial Judge Tutirlll said : "I fancy Luctgert will never again bo tried In a court In this county That Is a question which must he decided upuir when the e'ato gets ready to make another movo. 1'rom the wide publicity which thu newspapers have given the evi dence In the case , the marked attention which It has attracted In all parts of Me country and the frenzied Interest which the people of Chicago have taken In the trial , I lurdly think 'he prosecution can find twelve men who have not already tried the accused In their own minds and cither ac quitted or convicted him. That Is the prob lem confronting the state's attorney now , and unless ho solved It by producing the men of course Luetgert will go free.

The correspondence In rcgir , ! to the bimetallic proposals of tha United States monetary commission was Is sued by the British foreign olllce this even ing. The following account of the negotia tions is taken from the official publica tion. tion.At At the conference held nt the foreign office on July 12 , the premier , the marquis of Salisbury , the secretary of state fop India , Lord George Hamilton ; the chancellor ot the exchequer. Sir Michael Hlcks-Hcadr the first lord of the treasury , A. J. Halfcur ; the United States ambassador , Colonel John Hay , and the United States monetary cotn- mlsj-loncrs. Senator Elward 0. Wolcott of C-lorado , ex-Vice President A. E. Steven son of Illinois and General Charles Jackson Paine of Massachusetts were present , "On the Invitation of the Ilrltish premier Senator Wolcott explained that the object of the mission was to ascertain In advance of an International conference the views of the governments and the envoys had de termined to ascertain the views ot the French , Hrttlsh and German governments on the matter ot teaching an International bimetallic agreement. They h-d been to France , where they reached n complete and satisfactory understanding with the French government , and the envoys would have the co-operation In this matter of the Prench ambassador in London. The Benato- then explained that the success of the mission depended on the attitude Great Hrltaln would take and he requested Great Ilrltaln to a-ico to open the English mints , ns Its contribu tion to the attempt to restoio International bimetallism with the United States and France , co-operating to that end. The marquis ot Salisbury asked If France was ready to open Its mints to free coinage , and Senator Wolcott replied , "Yci * " The premier thereupon Inquired at what ratio France would open Itu mints Senator Wolcott said at 15 % , adding tLat the Ameri can envoys had accepted this ratio WOLCOTT'S PROPOSITIOINS. The senator then presented the following list of contributions , which , among others , he suggested Great Hrltaln might make : First The opening of the Indian mints and the repeal of the order making the sovereign legal tender In India. Second Placing one-fifth of the bullion In the issue department of the Bank of Eng land In silver. Third Raising the legal tender limit of silver to say ten pounds and Issuing twenty- shilling notes based on silver , which shall bo fcgal tender , and the retirement , In gradu ation or otherwise , of the ten shilling golJ plccra and the substitution of paper based on el'ver. Fourth An agreement to coin annually so much silver , the amount to be left open. Fifth The opening If the English mints to the coinage of rupees and to the coinage of Hritlsh dollars , which "hall be full tender In the Straits Settlements and other silver standaid countries , and tender In the United Kingdom. Sixth Colonial action and the coinage of silver In Egypt. Seventh Something having the general scope of the Huskltvion plan. SECOND CONFERENCE. The meeting then clcscd and It was un derstood by the parties that the absence of the French ambassador from the proceedings should be regarded as Informal and a second end conference was held on the IGth. at which , In addition to those already men tioned , the French ambassador and il. Gcoflrey , the councillor of the French em bassy wore present The French ambassador was Invited to declare the position of the French government and he said Franco was ready to reopen Its mints to the coinage of silver If the commercial nations adopted the same course , arid he advocated at great length the ratio ot 15 % , Hut , ho explained , Fiance would not consller the reopening of the mints of India alone as being sufficient guarantee to permit the French government to reopen the French mints to the free coin age of silver , ENGLAND DECLINES. Sir Michael Hicks-Reach then definitely an nounced that Great Ilrltaln would not agree to open the "English mints to the unlimited coinage ot silver , and whatever views he and his colleagues might separately hold legardlng bimetallism , ho could say that they were unlteJ on this point. Haron Do Courrcll said as a personal sug gestion , that among other contributions he thought Great Britain should open the Indian mints and also agree to purchase annually 10,000,000 pounds sterling of silver for a scries of years. Senator Wolcott accepted the proposal that the British government should make this purchase with proper safeguards and pro visions as to the place and manner of Its uee. Since this conference the British govern ment has been considering the proposals and finally made the reply handed the United States ambassador yesterday and cabled ex clusively to the Associated press , INDIA'S REPLY. The reply of the government of India , upon which Lord Salisbury based his decision , Is a long document , giving an emphatic nega tive to tbe proposal to open the India mints It saye : "Tho first results of the suggested meas ures , It they were to succeed even temporarily rily , In their object , would be an Intenoo dis turbance of India trade and Industry , There would bo a sudden rise In exchange , which , If the ratio of 15 % to 1 were adopted , would be about 3 pence the rupee. Such a rise would be enough to kill our export trade for a time at lead until the public were con vinced that the arrangement would bo per manent and have the effect Intended. "Tbe paraljbU of trade and Industry would be prolonged and would be accompanied by acute Individual suffering. None of tbe ad vantages expected would bo attained and the country would pass through a critical perloj , which would retard Its progreis for years , Its action would "be dlastrous alike to the etatc , to Individuals tnd to trade generally. The ixchange value cf the rupee , having rk n suddenly , would fall equally suddenly to a point fir lower than the present level , probably to i > pence and even lower. Such a fall , apart from other disastrous results , would necessitate additional taxation to tbe amount ot many croretf. " The reply then proceeds to point out that tbe proposed agreement nould bo a much. moro serious question Tor India , than for the Vrltcd States and Franco , as tbe whole risk cf disaster would fall upon India. If the agreement broke down the United States and. Prance could take prccauliqng against a dc- ple'lon of their gold reserve * ; but In In ! a the rupee , when the collapse came , would fall headlong and the government would have no remedy against fluctuation In the exchange value of India's standard ofalue with the fluctuations In the viluc of silver. "For , " continues the reply , "If the Indian mints are reopened to silver now U will be practically Impossible for the government ever to close them , ami It It were poislb'.e It would bo only After very largo additions had been made to the amount of silver cir culation. " Aftc. noting that the effect of the adop tion ct the schemes would probably be an In- crci&e In prices In Prance and the United States , but n decrease In India "a change w.ilch Franco and the United States would contemplate with equanimity , but which would be Impossible to India" the reply suggests that the United States Is partly Inspired In making its proposals by a fear of experiencing conic difficulties and dangers which India has already surmounted , after years of embarrassment. STAHLE EXCHANGE IN SIGHT. Then follows the opinion that India Is on the point of securing a stable exchange cf Ifl pence per rupee and It would bo cxcesd- liiKly foolish to throw away the position al ready attained by an acceptance ot pro posals which. If they filled of their Intended object , would place India permanently undo" the silver standard with all Its adm.ttcd dis advantages , "Nothing but assured success could Justify India In joining Irr the experi ment and our belief Is that the experiments will fall to secure n permanent ratio nf Ills to 1 Ono reason for this conclusion Is that the at range-men t would rest on too narrow a basis. The union of two count lea , with a third lending assistance. Is 11 very different thing from the International union ot a ma- jcrlty ot the Important countries of the world advocated by the Indian government In dispatches forwarded In March and Juno , 1S92 , and In February and September. ISSfi Wo doubt whether any two or three natlors In the world , unless one of them were Great Hrltaln , could establlOi the required sta bility. It Is certain that France , the United States and India could not. " CAUSE OF PROUAULIf FAILURE. The reply then proceeds to discuss various reasons why the experiment would not suc ceed ) Plrst 1C Franco and the United States , seeIng - Ing the prospect ot a tOial disappearance of gold coinage bcfoie the price ot silver has been raised to the intended latlo , might tuko measures to prevent tile export of gold. Second Either country might bo reduced to paper currency , In which case the agree ment would c'asrf to operate. Third A three-sided agreement would bo open to greater risk to termination by ono or two parties than a many-sided Interna tional agreement , by which eith-r Franco or thg _ United States might some day think some other nation was bencflttlng at Its ex pense and thls'vvould lead to discussions as to the expediency of the tormlantior. of the agreement , discussions only less cfrlous than actual termination. " > "For these reasons alon.o , without con sidering objections to the particular latlo proposed , we do not hesitate , " continue the authors of the reply , "to recommend that your lordship refuse to give the undertaking de sired. We shall be willing to consider what effect the co-operation of any other nations , if secured , may have on the pioli'ems but wo believe that our best policy is to link ourselves to Great Urltaln , " TOO HIGH A RATIO. They then proceed to argue that the ratio of 13' < . to 1 Is too high. "Differing so widely from the cxIuMnB ratio It would immensely Increase the difficulty. Indc-ed , if It could bo secured and maintained succecvsfully , wo should object to the ratio Jn the Interests of India and wo reconimind your lordship , on behalf of Inula , to decllne ( to participate In or to do anything to encourage the formation of a un on based thereupon. "As wo have already pointed out , the sud den rise in the exchange value of the rupee would bo so disastrous to Indian Industries , especially planting , In which Europe capi talists aie largely embarked , trot In our opinion the true Interests' India demand that any measures to attain stability of ex change for gold and silver should bo based upon a ratio not generally differing from 1C perce to the rupee. Any advantages from a considerable rise In exchange would bo far outweighed by the resulting evils. " Having discussed the probable effect In various directions upon India's local Inter ests , the dispatch recommends a reply In the negative adding : "We pre urno a union based on a ratio low enough to cult our In terests would not bo acceptable to Franco and the United States. " WHAT MIGHT HAVE HEEN. In conclusion the official dispatch Intimates that the present proposals might have been favorably considered In 1S92 , "but the ux- perlcnco of the last tow years has made the position very different. " It also notes that "the conditions unJer which wo have bad to reply to your lord- Fhip's dispatch preclude our consulting with the commercial and banking communities , of India , " but , "even had anpther reply been possible , It could only" have been after the fullest preliminary consideration by our banking and commercial ( bodies. " The dispatch Is signed V Lord Elgin , the viceroy of India ; Sir pcoruo Stewart White , commander In chief ot tljo nrlUsn forces In India and extraordinary member In the coun cil of the governor general , and by the fol lowing ordinary members of the council : Sir James Westland ( flunicljal member of the council ) , Sir John Wopdbuin , major gen eral , Sir B.

" .Many obstacles may retard the realization of the federal program , " this high diplomat continued "Firstly the condition of the Island makes the executing of reforms and the taking of election ? very difficult. Sec ondly , the division In the autonomist party makes Its support unreliable , just when the government wants It to be the cornerstone of the new regime. Thirdly , the ambiguous attitude of the so-called Spanish party , the constitutional union , mikes mischief , as Its pi offered support Is conditional on the gov ernment making no large extension of elec toral franchise , cs that \\onld deprive them of the control of the municipal and provin cial councils and the Insular assembly. Foul thly , the creating of a local assembly with a responsible executive Is exceedingly unpopular In Spain and Is combattcd oven by lii'luentlal liberals and newspapers like the llcraldo and Imparclal. "Fifthly , mllltarj men share the opinion of Generals Ulanco , 1'arrado and I'amlo , that rigid mllltarj occupation of the four west ern proviacss of Cuba and very active opera tions In the two eastern provinces are Indis , pensab'c to complete the pacification and can only produce results In a few months If the United States stop entliely filibustering ex peditions and all other ass't'tance ' to the In surgents. "SKthly , the prolongation of the struggle , with Its tcnlblo drain on the Span.sh finances and embarrassments , pending to the tune of $8,000,000 a month , on top of the $400,000,000 alieady spent early this winter , will force Spain to pledge more sources of peninsular revenue to raise money to go on with pacification In Cuba. "Hence the anxiety of the court and the government to focuro the good will of the United States , which Is shown In the adop tion cf a new colonial policy , in making promises to settle the American claims after pacification and In holding out a prospect of advantages for American trade and capital In the Spanish West Indies. "Views on the delicate matters are ex changed between the two governments with reserve , chiefly at Washington , as usual hitherto. Probably nothing of them will be placed officially on record. The prevailing opinion In court and official circles In Mad rid Is that the American government shows a temporizing and friendly disposition. " ARTHUR E HOUGIITON. PI'.OTnST AGAINST FILIBUSTERING.
