NKWYORK, Aug. t.
Tbe edict of practieal banishment which
the czar has pronounced against the Jews
in Kussia will have an important effect in
this coantry, and especially right in
New York. Prominent New York Hebrews
say that a great majority of the banished
million will make their way as soon
possible to America, which i# tbe only land
to which they turn with favor. There fol
lows, of coarae, a train of important prob
lent*. Many of tbe immigrants will of ne
oeesity he without means. There will first
arise the question of their admissibility
under tbe law excluding all person* liable
to become public charge*. 8u}eruiUindt-nt
Weavtc, of the intasifrratiou bureau,
says he anticipate* a repetition in
no me worse form of the rash
of Buasian immigrants to this
coantry in IKN'2. It ia believed that 60 per
cent of them will come to America. "The
law for the exclusion of paupers was de
signed for just such emergency as this,"
Bupermteudeut Weaver says, "and I shall
enforce it strictly." The experience of
188*2 called into existence two or three so
cieties! for aiding impoverished ltusaian
Jew* who came to New ork and the\* are
equipped for doing extensive relief work.
The Baron Hirsck committee on the relief
of Hnasian Jews in New York now has
available about flti.tHJO a month for this
purpose. They are aboat to invest a larxe
fond so that it will yield a steady income
at about that rate, and they will prepare to
do everything possible in the eiu«rg»-ncy.
Judge MP. Isaaos, of the committee, said
to*day that he had no doubt of the truth of
tbe report of the cxar's ukaae against the
Jews. A great proportion of them would
be driven from the oountrf by the
fresh persecution now began, and
all who did leave would oome to
A mirier. Prominent N«w Yor% He
brew* will appeal to Secretary Blaine to
intercede with the Uaasian authorities la
th matter, but it is doubtful if any
American interference would avail. Mr.
Betnher«, the representative of the united
Hebrew charities at the beige office, says
be belt#ve« 7f per cent, of the baniahaa
Jsws will oome to New York, but he is
sure they will be taken care of by tbe
wealthj Hebrews of tbe city. He says
they will make good eitiaen*. Motl of
thorn would be self-sustaining from th*
start, nod thos« who had been robbed of
i all their possesion* by th* Russian gov
i eminent would be taken care of by others
of tfteif race here until they were able to
*aru their own living. Coroner Levy,
who is president of the Jewish Kmigra^on

The cotton exports for July have been

exports of wheat and Hour have of lsi*

ties tend steadily upward, with expectation
of jibnndaut money, and have neen half ef

ment, if prolonged, will tend to eaue*
sbipm nts of gold instead of products. At
almost all tbe interior money markets, as
here, the rates have beeu moderate th«s

because of injury to crop* by drouth and

eaused by numerous reports from the neu
tral western states, though estimates of a
yield of 1IK),(N)0,(MM) bushels of wheat in the
Dakotas and Minnesota appear well sup
ported by detailed railway report*. The
conflicting local accounts and estimates
helped Hjxw uiation to a sharp ad™nee in

a warm personal friend of President Har

between Mr Blaine and the advocate* of
the Mckinley bill, said that he knew there
would be a hard tight over the question of

ganixed movement to have Mr. Blaine re-*

if suv one reckoned on President Har

would find that they were reckoning with
out their hoet. "There is not,' he said,
the conflict tetw.en theee two men that
the newspapers make out. There is no
more conflict than there would naturally
be between two large men moving large
circles and dealing with great questions.
Mr. Blaine has made a national issue of it,
and tbe public mind is more or less unset,
tied. The men who think the Mo Kin
ley bill is hurt by Mr. Blames
utterance*,
ot
course «Btagonme the
proposition hut as to President
Harrison joining them, 1 look on it in
tbi« way. The proposition is a popular
one, and Mr. Blame is a strong man, with
an eye to Mr. Harrtaon must know
that he could not get a renoimnation if he
were violently attacked by Mr. Blaine and
his friends. I do not think any one oan
oount on Mr. Harrison taklug such a
course as would drive Mr. Blaine oat of
the cabinet. On tbe other band, Mr.
Blaiue, if„ be were out of the cabinet,
would be a private citizen with many

bill abandoned. They picture tbe condi
tion of affairs in a very unfavorable iigbt,
lay that a war of races will b* inevita
ble. Th* latest phase of tbe *t*te of feel
ing in the south is indicated in the part i«
which tbe woman are taking in writing to
their friends in the north and to senator*.
Many of these letters are received by Mr.
Quay. Judging from th* general conver
sation of the senator, who, as the country
knows, believes in practical politioe, it
evident that be does not wholly regard tbe
elsctiou bill either as expedient in legisla
tion or practicable jiolttics The eoutb
•ru problem he apparently regards as sur
round ml by too many complications in
many points to make that section an en
couraging fold for political labor
beyond tb* maintenance of the party
organization. The plan propoaed i* not
one that be particularly admires. At tb*
same time be will defer to the wishe* of
the majority, and whatever bill they de
termine upon will receive his fete Whan
ever it reaches that stag*.

On Monday the pablic%n senator* g*v*
the minority formal notice that they pro
posed now to settle down to buam**s in
dead earnest, and with that purpoae in
view, after some objection from tbe other
side, they lived tbe hour of meeting of the
senate at 11 a. m., and adjournment at p.
m. Two hours of this time is to be de
voted to the calendar of the morning hour,
(and the remaining five to speeches and de
ales upon tbe tariff or other basin***.
I nder the regular hour* of the *easion it
was rarely that more than two or thro*
hours were available for general debate. It
is thought that this present program will
oxpedite matter*. If tbe democrat* show
no signs of exhaustion tn a reasonable
length of time, the hours will be still fur
ther extended. The proposed 3b-minute
