ti r acted ns secretary pro tern :n the
absence of Secretary Athertop, who,
with J. A. Lansing, left al ii'.on yester
day to attend the meeting at Cincin
nati to organise a National Association
of Manufacturers.
Following Is the report of the special
committee appointed to examine the
"Ualtimore Currency Plan:"
We find the foundation for the plan
Is in its first, second und seventh sec
tions. The first of these provides for
the repetil of the provision of the na
tional bank act requiring the deposit of
bunds to secure circulating notes.
The second provides that banks be
allowed to issue circulating notes to
the amount of 60 per cent, of their paid
up and unimpaired capital, subject to
a tax of one-half of 1 per cent, per an
num, utiun the average amount of eti
culution outstanding lor the year, und
an additional circulation of per cent
of their paid ur und unimpaired cap
Ital subject both to the tax of one-nair
of 1 per cent, per annum and to an
additional heiivy tax per annum upon
the average amount of such circulation
outstanding for the year, bald audi
tlonal 20 per cent, to be known us an
emergency circulation.
Section seven provides mat me circu
lation of each failed bank shall be a
first lien on Its assets.
Reasons for Disapproval.
Your committe? does not approve of
these sections for the following reasons,
to wit: We see no necessity for aban
doning the currency provisions of the
present national bank act, but we sea
good reasons for retaining mem. ine
present act helps to make a market lor
the government bonds and has given
our country the safest paper money
that any country can have.
Of the aggregate issues of govern
ment bonds outstanding, tho national
banks are now using about one-quar
ter as security for their circulation,
and, ut times, have used more, the
total outstanding bond Issues being
$7."0,000,(KM) and tho amount now used
by national banks being $199,000,000.
W e believe a portion, nt leust, of the
greenbacks and treasury notes, the
total of the two being ubout $.000,000,000,
should be redeemed by Issuing In their
place a bond bi'iiring a low rate of
interest, and that in order to make tne
national bank currency more elastic,
the restriction, now existing, should be
removed that requires banks to wait
six months after having reduced their
circulation, before they can increase it
Tho government tax of 1 per cent, em
circulation should bo reduced and the
bank act should be amended so that
the banks could Issue, under a lower
tax, an nmount of circulation equal to
75 per cent, of their capital, and then
an additional amount, equal to 115 per
cent, of their capital, (and ulso secured
by bonds) but subject to a tax heavy
enough to cause It to be retired when
It is not needed in trade. This would
also raise the limit of circulation for
each bunk, to un amount equal to its
capitul, instead of 90 per cent, of It
as ut present.
What the Committee believes.
We also believe that banks should be
allowed to Issue currency to the amount
of the par value of the bonds deposited
Instead of 90 per cent., as nt present.
We object to the circulation of the
banks being a first lien on their assets,
as we believe that such security should
be left wholly for the depositors.
We agree with a suggestion that has
been madu ns to the advisability of the
president of the United States appoint
Ing a non-partisan commission of emi
nent financiers to Investigate currency
matters and report to congress.
William II. Peck,
J. A. Linen,
Samuel Hlnes,
The report practically favors the
present plan of currency without the
greenback system, although the cem
mlttee suggests tho Issuance of bonds
at a lower rate of Interest and the ex
tending of circulation to a full par
value. A. W. Dickson, W. H. Peck,
President May, R. J. Foster, II. J. An
derson, H. E. Paine, Colonel F. L
Hitchcock and Samuel Hlnes partici
pated in i rather one-sided discussion
which Indicated that the present sys
tem with Its weak points Is preferable
to the new plan. -Mr. Hlnes was of tlhe
opinion that If the amendments sug
gested In the report had been adopted
by congress two years ago the financial
depression would not have existed. The
enormous amount of $700,000,000 lying In
reserve Indicates a lack of opportunity
for Investment rather than any string
ency of circulation.
Would Not Remove Cause.
Under these circumstances It n.p
pcared that tho Haltlmoro plan for In
creasing circulation would not removt
the cause of financial crisis. There was
a marked concurrence on the propose
Hon that the president appoint a com,
mission of financiers to Investigate cur
rency matters.
The report was adopted unanimously
and the Ualtimore chamber of com
merce will be notified that Us plan Is
not approved.

reported tlhe Introduction In councils
of an ordinance taxlnf? wagons, exeopt-

Answer I-'ilcd by Smith.
Another chapter was enacted yester
day In court In the case of Mrs. Asenath
Davis, of Throop, against "Doc" M. D.
Smith, who Insists thut he was the law
ful husband of the Hate Esther M.
Walter, otherwise known us Lil How
ard, wheise death occurred on Sept. 17,
1S94, possessed of considerable property
and leaving no will.
Thu doctor was granted letters of ad
ministration on the estuto on Nov. 3,
1S94. Mrs. DavH was a half -sister
of Miss Howard, und she petitioned
Re'glster Koehler to revoke the letters
granted. A healing was taken before
the register nt which Attorney E. C.
Newcomb appeared for Mrs. Davis and
Attorneys O. II. Partridge nnd Mllo J.
Wilson for Ihe defendant. Many "Wit
nesses on both sides were sworn, but
after the ense was over Register Koeh
ler refused to revoke the letters granted
to the doctor.
Mrs. Davis cnrrled the motion to tho
judicial court nnd a citation was
granted by Judge Edwards ordering
the doctor to show cause why an appeal
should not be taken from the decision
of the register refusing to revoke the
letters of administration. A hearing
on the rule took place yesterday and
after hearing the arguments court
made the rule absolute and allowed
the appeal to proceed nnd required the
doctor to file an answer.
The answer filed by tho deictor's at
torneys was that he was the legal and
lawful husband of Esther M. Waller
nt the time of her decease, and ns such
he Is entitled to administer upon her
estate as was fully proven by the evi
dence taken by and before Register
Koehler. He admits that Mrs. Asenalh
Davis was a half sister of Esther M.
Walter, and that A. H. Conistock was
her nephew and Miss Alice Meyers
her niece; but he was her husband and
as such Is entitled to the estate?.

An exceptionally large nnd fashion
able audience filled the spacious Froth
Ingham theater last evening to listen to
the concert by the New Y'ork Philhar
monic club for the benefit of the Rail
road Yemng Men's Christian associa
tion. Splendid programme of Instru
mental and vocal selections was ren
dered. Almost all the numbers were encored
and It Is needless to say that the selec
tions of thj pieces and their rendi
tion were of the highest standard. The
concert opened with the sextette. "Sum
nierfahrt," by the club, which com
prises: Flute, Eugene Welner, director
viola, Paul Wende; violoncello, Henri
Haagmans; violin, Sol Marcosson: vio
lin, Frank S. Porte; double bass, Rich

every respect In unfolding the beauties
of this gem of German music. Henri
I iiaagmans louoweu wiin a vioiouccim
solo, "Elfentan;:, for which he received
the warm plaudits of his nudlence.
Miss Clara C. Henley sang nn aria from
"Pagllaccl," for which she was de
servedly encored. .Miss Henley's clear
nnd distinct pronounelatlon In a great
feature In her performance, nnd the
enthusiasm eif her hearers Is easily
aroused by the intelligent manner in
which the words of her songs are ut
tered. In the second part Miss Henley sang
a "CaiiBonotta" by Meyer-llormund.
and was again applauded, nnd In re
sponse delighted tho audience with tho
sympathetic manner In which she gave
the popular Stretch ballad, "Ronnie
Bessie of Dundee." Eugene Welner
was nccorded a double encore in his
flute solo. liy request he played a
"Largo" from Handel's works and fol
lowed with a selection from Theo.
Gouvy. The double encore to which
Mr. Welner was compelleil to respond
to speaks volumes of his undoubted
skill In manipulating the flute.
Sed Marcosson was also encored for
his splendid violin solo, and responded
by giving a seh-ctlon which drew forth
considerable applause. Hpeclul men

When the advertising atmosphere is so
heavily charged with exai-ration. it
is well to remember who the honest
advertisers arc. Windy assertions about
GREAT reductions'-advertising goods
at impossible prices, Cnd no lodging
place in the minds of intelligent people.
Dull trade throughout the legitimate
business season may make necessary,
wild statements from some clothiers to
attract trade, but the schemers will
have to scheme harder and find new
disguises for their lame excuses before
they can stop the people from coming
to this store for honest values. The
triumph of this store is the triumph of
intelligence, and you have made it so.
Trade has been up to the mark here,
yet there's a touch of attractiveness in
the styles and assortments. We've add-
ed another and more taking attraction
