THE RCItANTON TRIBUNE MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 17, 1894.
FAVOR CARLISLE'S BILL
Currency Committee Will Ask the
House to Vote for the Measuie.
THE VIEWS OF TWO BANKERS
6trong Opposition Will Probably Con
front the Bill When It Is Taken Vp
for Adoption-St. John Urges
Free Silver Coinage.
Cy the United Press.
Washington, Dec. 16. Secretary Car
lisle'! bill to reform the banking and
currency Is scheduled to pass the house
of representatives at 3 o'clock next Fri
This Is the time agreed upon by the
Democratic members of- the committee
on banking and currency for taking the
Vote. This agreement, to be put In force,
must receive the approval of the com
mittee on rules, and must be voted for
by a majority of the members of the
house. The programme was fixed up
late yesterday afternoon, after the con
clusion of the hearings which have oc
cupied the time of the committee dur
ing the week.
The differences of opinion in the
committee are so many and of such a
radical nature that there was no hope
of ever getting a majority to Indorse
any bill. It was accordingly deter
mined by the Democratic members of
the committee that the only thing that
could be done would be to report the
Carlisle bill to the house without
amendment, with the understanding
that the members of the committee will
have an opportunity to offer Individual
amendments In the house. Mr. Springer
was authorized to report the bill In this
It was at first proposed to have the
Committee adopt a resolution, to be re
ferred to the rules committee, provid
ing for carrying out this programme,
fcut there was considerable opposition
on the part of the Republican members
to proceeding so rapidly, and some of
the Democrats also thought there
ought to be more time given. It was
rtherefore agreed that Chairman
Springer and such other members of
the committee as might wish to do so
ehould go before the committee on
rules on Monday and present their
views as to what ought to be done. It
Js probable the programme will be
agreed to by the rules committee, as It
Is understood the Democrats of that
committee were consulted before It was
Opposition to the Programme.
-When the rule is reported to the
house it will probably meet with the
united opposition of the Republicans
and a considerable number of Demo
crats. There are at least four Demo
cratic members of the committee w!;o
think more time ought to be given for
delate, and that the vote .on the bill
cug'ht to be postponed until after the
holiday recess. This will be strongly
opposed by Chairman. Springer and
others, who are understood to be act
ing In concert with the president, and
who insist that the bill must be sent
to the senate before the holiday If
there is to be any hope whatever of ac
tion upon it by that body.
The Impression among the members
of the banking and currency committee
and others who have studied the sxtu
tlor. in the house Is that the bill will
pass that body, If at all, substantially
as !t was drawn up by Secretary Car
llule. This is not because any one is
satisfied with It in its present form, but
because there is so much different! of
op'nlon as to be the character of the
i-niendments to be made. It Is doubt
ful 11' a majority of the house can be
etcured on the vote for any one of the
.among the amendments that will be
offered will be one to strike out the
provision making each bank liable for
the security of notes Issued by every
other bank. Amendments will al30 be
ottered to strike out the provision for
Btate bank currency and to provide
for th funding of legal tenders in low
Interest bonds. Unless the speaker
rules such an amendment out of order
an effort will also be made to add to the
bill a provision for the free coinage of
Changes in the Senate.
' The chances for favorable action on
any bill 1n the senate are rather diffi
cult to forecast, especially as some of
the Republicans seem to be disposed to
oppose any bill, good or bad, and at any
rate, a vote can only be reached by a
Secretary Carlisle's plan has now
been before the country for two weeks,
and has been the subject of hearings
before the house committee on banking
and currency for one week, and among
all the men who have appeared before
the committee, and among the hun
dreds who have written to Chairman
Springer, only one man has been found
nvho approves the plan. This is Presi
dent Post, of the York National bank,
of York, Neb., whose letter Chairman
Springer read before the committee
Mr. Johnson, of Indiana, objected to
!ts going into the record of the hear
ings, and asked Mr. Springer if his rea
son for adding it was not that it was
the only letter he had received Indors
ing the Carlisle plan. Mr. Springer ad
mitted that it was, but did not insist
oipon Its going Into the record, and It
rwas left out.
Bankers representing directly oppo
site view occupied the attention of the
committee today. They were O. Q.
Williams, president of the Chemical Na
tional bank, of New York, and W. P.
St. John, president of the Mercantile
National bank, of New York. Mr. St.
John is in favor of free silver, while Mr.
.Williams Is against it.
Mr. Williams 'maintained that the pres
ent situation in currency matters was
Die requiring only firmness and com
mon sense. The" flfrst , problem' in a
clumsy and conglomerated financial
system was the disposition to be made
of the legal tender notes. - Nn financial
Bystem, he said, could be permanently
successful without providing for the
elimination of .these notes. Provision
should be made at once for funding a
part of them, say $250,000,000, in
amounts of perhaps $50,000,000 at a
time, at the dlsoretlon of the secretary
of the treasury.
Wants Low Interest Bonds.
Mr. Williams' suggestion was the is
sue of United States bonds bearing a
rate of interest not more than 3 per
cenlt. and fhait these bonds should be re
ceived as security 'for circulating notes
of national banks on ithe basis of par
for the bonds, the government having a
first lien also on the assets of the banks
as additional security.
The itas on the circulation of national
banks, he said, ehould be removed at
once, and with a 3 per cent, bond at par
and no tax on circulation there would
be sufficient inducement for national
banks to take out circulating notes.
As for the sliver certificates, he be
lieved 'It would be wise to pass an act
allowing them to be redeemed In sliver
bullion at its market value, and the
Sherman act notes might be also in
cluded. With these few changes In the
law he thought our financial system
be placed oh a safe basis.
Mr. 9t. John discovered that under
official dictation, tutored by the one
most Aggressive of all our handful of
"goklltes" in the United States, Con
gress fiddled with bank notes while the
burning issue was our primary money.
His entire statement was devoted to
an argument that congress should en
act a law providing for bimetallism.
This, he asserted, would do away wlith
the necessity for other financial legisla
tion, and once such a law was passed
and approved there would be no reason
for passing new banking laws.
JILTED ON HIS WEDDING DAY.
Aged Cato Uoagland's I'nhappy Experi
ence with a Young Bride.
By the United Press.
New Brunswick, Dec. 16. A few
weeks ago Cato Hoagland, 70 years old,
a well-to-do colored resident of Frank
lin Park, engaged Ellen Baker, 23 years
old, to keep house for him. He paid
her some money In advance, and she
promised to assume charge of his house
hold last Saturday. As she failed to
keep her -word, Hoagland had her ar
rested for dbtalnlng money under false
pretences. When arraigned before Jus
tice Wesscott the girl protested that
she meant no harm, and begged for
leniency. She made profuse apologies
to Cato and manifested a great affec
tion for him.
The justice racked his brain for a1 so
lution of the difficulty, and .finally an
nounced that the only way it could be
settled properly was for the couple to
marry. Mr. Hoagland was not averse
to such a step, nor was Ellen. The Jus
tice tied the knot forthwith.
On Sunday afternoon Mrs. Hoagland
told her husband she was going out for
a short time to see her aunt and tell
her what a nice husband she had and
all the circumstances connected with
her marriage. She did not return that
night, and for several days Hoagland
waited In vain for tils bride to return.
Finally he went In search of her, and
found her yesterday. He asked the girl
why she had not come back. She re
plied: "It was marry or go to Jail, so I mar
ried you. Did you think I was going to
live with you?"
Hoagland came .to this city this morn
ing and inserted an advertisement in
the local papers tlhat he would not be
responsible for any debts she might
contract. The woman is a cousin of
the young negro who murdered Mrs.
Moore Baker and her baby and was
himself killed by the murdered woman's
THEY STEAL COFFINS.
Michigan People's Charge Against Chi
By the United Press.
Detroit, Mich., Dec 16. Grand Haven
officers here claim to have vldence that
a firm of Chicago undertakers have
been Btealing many coffins they have
used during the past five years out of
country graveyards In Michigan, Illi
nois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and perhaps
other states. They are of the opinion
that they have not only stolen what
they used, but refitted and sold them
In quantities to country firms. Emis
saries have been going over the country
opening newly made graves in isolated
cemeteries. They take the body out of
the coffin, throw it back Into the grave
and cover it, robbing the corpse of any
Jewelry there may be upon It.
The coffins are taken to pieces, packed
in cases, and shipped to Chicago under
various fictitious names. A Chicago
detective who recently visited In this
vicinity is authority for the statement
that the officers ' are on the tracks of
the men who rob the graves.
The electric road between Mt. Carmel
and Centralla will be ready Jan. 1.
The Shamokin 'v Telephone company
has been chartered with a capital stock
Twelve new passenger cars have been
ordered by the- Lehigh Valley for the
main line. , . , ,.
The Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western rallrodd Is said to have had
less accidents than any other road in
the United States. , '
During the past week the Philadel
phia and Reading railroad carried 216,
276.07 tons.' In the same week of 1893
they hauled 202,819.05, ah increase of
13,457.00 tons.. ,
Under the .Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western Railroad company the
mines are "at -present working very
slack. The quota of coal for the year
is almost filled and much will not be
dons before Jan. 1. ''
The "air line" between New York and
Chicago brings out some of the most
remarkable propositions. A writer In
the Mauoh Chunk papers geta over the
difficulty of grade between Audenried
and Mauch Chunk by Binklng a shaft
1,700 feet and dropping passengers and
freight down an elevator.
Work was unexpectedly . resumed at
the North works of the Lackawanna
Iron and Steel company last Friday,
and the order on" which the mill was
started is said to be one that will last
for a few months. The South works
are undergoing repairs and after a
week It is said that plant will also re
sume. The Stevens colliery at Plttston is in
danger of being flooded by a sudden
Inflow of water. The other night while
one of the night miners was at work In
his chamber he struck a stream of
water which filled the place' so rapidly
that he was unable to secure all of the
tools. The water has continued to flow
in ever since, and all of the pumping
facilities of the mine have been Insuf
ficient to cope with It. Additional
pumps are being placed In position In
hopes of controlling the flood. The col
liery Is still in operation, those portions
of the mine not under water furnishing
The material made by the Bonta
Plate Glass company at Moosic will be
much stronger than marble and much
more desirable from a sanitary point of
view, and with this process It can be
produced at a much less cost than
polished marble or Blate and can be
decorated In relief In any color or de
sign desired. This opens a new article
of commerce for which this company
have letters patent covering the em
bossing process and the custing of plate
glass by rolling on both Bides of the
sheet, saving labor in the grounding
and polishing after the sheet of glass
has been annealed.
A new trolley car track was tried be
tween Fullerton and Allentown this
week which seems to have many ad
vantages over others previously In use.
While It embraces all the capabilities
of the old style truck it Is as much an
improvement and advancement on the
latter as electric light Is superior to
kerosene, says the Allentown Chronicle.
The old style trucks now In use are
rigidly fixed to a car. Their maximum
distance is 7 ft. 6 in. In the new trucks
the distance between the wheels can be
increased or reduced to suit the length
of any car, and being placed at the ex
treme front and rear they do away with
that disagreeable pendulum-like and
Jarring motion so productive of nausea
whenever a car Is run at even a mod
erate rate of speed. So smooth and
easy was the motion that when the car
was run at a forty mile an hour clip
the reporters on board were able to
write down their notes with perfect
ease. The new truck Is the Invention
of J. W. Fuller, who spent a year In
The Dickson Manufacturing company
Is at work upon three large fans for the
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western
company. They are to be set up at the
Woodward, Pettebone and Bliss mines.
They are what is known as Guibai fans
and have an outside diameter of thirty
five feet, nine foet face. The fans have
double Inlets 17 ft. 6 In. In diameter and
are of central disc construction, built
of plate and shape steel, well braced
from periphery of Interior circle to the
heavy cast Iron center. Each fan has
sixteen blades. The estimated weight
of each of the fans complete is 60,000
pounds. The calculated capacity of
each fun at a periphery speed of 7,000
feet per minute and under a three and
a half water guage, Is from 250,000 to
300,000 cubic feet of air per minute. The
fan Is connected to a 28 by 40 Dickson
Corliss engine of special design. The
casting Is of steel plate and shape, -with
evassee chimney and adjustable V
shutter of construction commonly used
with the Guibul fan.

months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s flour far above other
