TE1K opinion of of the presidents ot
the Urge bank and financial in

sard to the Bland Seigniorage
bill was quietly but explicitly stated st
a meetioit held at tbe Union Trust
oompsny'c offices tin afternoon
It ws 'tnee ting of representattva
nieu iu New York finances and with
out speech in akiu:,' excitement Ith.v
unanimously slsctedGeorgeQ Williams
of the Chemical National bank, chair
tnsn, and Stephen Baktr, of the Man
hat tan company bank, secretary
Not a word was IDOken uutil Chair
man Williams asked whether any com
munications wer ready to be offered
to the meeting Then President Sim
mons arose and read a short preamble
and resolutions. ?Vost of those present
had apparently seen or heard of the
tenor of the resolutions before an 1
everybody appeared to b satisfied
when it developed that the bankers of
New York were to send a communica
tion to President Cleveland, telling him
that thiv bad understoo 1 when they
subscribed to the recent issue of $oi). -000.
000 3 per ceut bon is that they con
sidered that the government in vie a
tacit promise ,uot to coin the seignior
age, It was decided t- send the resolution
to President Cleveland this evuing so
that he will receive them tomorrow
It was also intimated that a friend of
the president who was present at the
meeting would telegraph the result of
the meeting to Washington tai after
noon The resolutions were as follows:
Whereas, A bill la n..w before the presi
dent of the L'uued States for his approval
or disapproval, which provides tr the
coinage of the so-called sliver seigniorage
amiinting tho sum of 55, litf, 631,
thereby inflating the currency of the coun
try at a time when money w superabund
ant and making more difficult the con
vertibility of the currency which the gold
reserve is now obliged to carry; and
Whereas, The innaiing of r.nr already
redundant currency will not enhance the
value o: the silver bullion in the posses
sion of the government, or increase the
consumption of that metal, or add to the
value ot any mining interest.
Whereas, No benefit can accrne either to
the government or to the financial inter
ests of the country by allowing the afore
said bill to become a law, but serious harm
la likely to arise therefrom in o far as It
will impair the credi; of the government
and add to the prevailing distrust of our
securities in Europe and encourage with
drawals of foreign capital and came -hip

Whereas, VidOUl legislation with re
spect to silver has been the cana of great,

the financial and commercial interests of
the count! y, and a continuance of the

industries and stifling enterprises which
are starting into life; and

Whereas, 'I be banker r.f the city Ol New

and stable currency and in sound principle;
of finance, and have at all times been
ready and willing to come to the relief of
the secretary of the tre.isury whenever
the necessities of the government were
such as to warrant their a-istanr: and
W hereas, The ofgrars Of the financial in
stitutions, firms and corporations of New

negotiated by the government, with the
beliof that the marketing of the bonds
would pre vein th" fnrth-r inflation of the
currency by the coining of the so-called

Therefore be It resolved that in the

Washington, March 21,
13 HERE were no exciting scenes,
either tragic or comic, during
today's hearing nf tbw trial of
Madeline. V. Pollard's int
against Representative W. C. P Breck
inridge for bran!i ol promise of mar
ring--. Tbe interest centered in tbe
disclosure of the line of defence to bo
pursued, which was found to he ei
Hotly as foreshadowed in the Cnit-d
l'r-s despatches several days ago. The
defendant's esse was opened by Major
Shelby, his law partner.
Ha outlined the defense very fully,
telling what Colonel Breckinridge ex
pected to prove and how be would
prove it. Major Bhelby made known
that the principal pmut of tbe defenre
would be the production of proof that
Colonel Breckinridge submitted to the
demands of the plaintiff through in
timidation and to avoid scandal, and
that it was under these conditions he
stated to Mrs. Hluckburu that the
plaintiff and himself were engaged to
be married, when tber was no kuch
agreement between them and because
Miss Pollard iiad agreed, this being
done, to go away and pass out of his
defendant's quilt acknowledged
Major Shelby acknowledged that
Colonel 15rckinridge and Mils Pollard
had maintained illicit relations, bnt lie
made the flat statement, which, he
said, would be supported by testimony
that Mist Pollard made the advances
and told the defendant that Bodes, her
old lover, had been unduly intimate
with her, thus placing her in the p si
t ion ot being the betrayer of Colonel
Defendant's counsel promised thai
testimony would be produced to show
that Madeline Pollard had maintained
criminal relations with other men, J and
.Mujor Shelby asked the jury to take
into consideration her character for
purity when they were preparing to
render a verdict.
The defense, it wan said, wonld also
claim that Utss Pollard made three
attempt to kill Colonel liree kinridge
and would establish thnt he did not
maintain illicit relations with h-r after
tho time he became engaged to Mrs
Wing, and certainly not after his mar
riage. After Mr. Shelby closed his opening
address, the rest of the day untiled
jnnrnmenl was tsken up by reading
