Ths Opinions of Congressman Henry H.
NO HOPE FROM COMINQ SESSION
Measures for the Itelicf of the Finan
cial World Will Probably lie Font
poncd Until the Meeting of the
Filty-lifth Congress lliiana as a
Wnshlngton, Nov. IS. Hon. Henry
II. Bingham, representing the First
Congregational district in Pennsyl
vania, responding to an interview on
matters likely to engage the attention
of the next and forthcoming session of
congress, expressed the opinion that
finuncial legislation must run over un
til the Fifty-fifth congress. The at
titude of the members elected, said Mr.
Bingham, is not known. They are for
sound money, but the details covering
a change and revision of laws are
without limit. The Republicans com
ing Into control In the house In the
Fifty-fourth congress were compeleld
to recognize the dellclency and condi
tion of the treasury and to legislate at
once for a revenue that would cover
the economical expenses and expendi
tures of the government.
The Dlngley emergency bill, as a
temporary expedient was passed, said
Mr. Bingham. It Is now In the senate
and It Is mere guess work to proclaim
its disposition.The personnel of the sen
ate continues the same for the approch
Ing session. There are many features
and discriminations in the Dlngley
bill that will not lie Incorporated In a
distinctive Republican measure, and
nm n y paragraphs that might embar
rass legislation In the Fifty-fifth con
gress when the legislation must be
considered ab initio. It is also an open
question if the president would sign or
let the bill become a law without his
signature, for it strikes severely many
of his well known and pronounced low
tariff views. I am in favor of an im
mediate extra session after March
4 111, Its!)", and the taking up of a new
The business Interests of the country,
said Mr. Bingham, have neither been
stagnated nor disturbed In the past
when the Republican party has been
consumating tariff legislation.

New York, Nov. 18. The Anchor line
steamer Anchoria Captain Wilson, ar
rived tonight from Ulasgrow and Mo
ville, with 126 cabin and tifty-two steer
age passengers. Captain Wilson says
that Sunday at 6.14 o'clock in the eve

amination showed that the thrust shaft
was broken. The vessel was then 134
miles east of Sandy Hook, soundings
were taken, finding 37 fathoms of wat

she soon rode smoothly. The weather
being excellent throughout the deten

break was uncovered, the thrust shaft
was seen to be broken through. Luck

on board, and all hunds turned to help
the chief engineer, Anthony Thompson.

A record was made on the Job, as the
total delay from the time of the stop

only 59 hours and twenty minutes.
During this time the vessel was lying
quietly at anchor. The passengers were
not alarmed, as the weather continued

that the repairs would be completed
quickly. The vessel is in as good con

The Next Fight Hill lie with Steve
O'Donncll ou Christmas.
Pittsburg, Nov. 18. John J. Qulnn,
manager for Peter Maher, arrived in
Pittsburg from New York today. He
said that there was no truth in the
report that he wold not manage the
Irishman. He said that "Buck" Con
nolly would act as Maher's backer and
that he, Qulnn, would manage Peter's
fighting affairs for the present, at least.
Maher received $1,900 for his share of
the fight with Choynskl, and Connolly
and Qulnn a similar amount to be di
vided between them Choknskl and
"Parson" Davles received $1,100 each
as their share of the reselpts. The ex

paid. Qulnn stated that Maher's next
fight would be with Steve O'Donnell on
Christmas afternoon at Warren Lewis'

Maher will rest for a while, but will be
prepared to challenge the winner of the

GLASS WORKERS' TROUBLE.
Unable to Come to nn Agreement
Pittsburg, Pa., Nov. 18. The wage
committee on the window glass work
ers' and manufacturers' met here today
to endeavor to arrive at an agreement
on the wage rates for the year ending
June 30, 1897. The conference was brief.
Each side stated Its position, which
was the same a when the last confer
ence adjourned. The manufacturers
asked for a reduction from last year's
rates, equal to about 7 per cent., and
the worken asked for an Increase over
last year's wages of 7V4 per cent. Af
ter some little argument the meeting
adjourned until tomorrow. The manu
facturers say they don't care If their
factories are not started until next
Februury. The workers are apparent
ly determined to hold out for what they
ask. It Is believed an agreement will
be reached at tomorrow's meeting and
about all the factories will be running
In about ten days hence.
Simon Burns was re-elected presi
dent of the Window Glass Workers' as
sociation and Joseph Cray treasurer.
M'KINLEY'S QUIET DAY.
Uut Few Callers YesterdayMrs
McKinley Health Improving.
Canton. O., Nov. 18. Not since his
nomination for the presidency by the
St. Louis convention has Major McKin
ley had us much time as he could call
his own as he had today. There were
but few callers, and they occupied only
a small portion of his time. Kven me
letter carrier seemed disposed to afford
relief to the president-elect, and the
great mass of correspondence that has
been dally delivered at the McKinley
residence was today reduced to not
more than a couple hundred letters.
Mrs. McKinley Is rapidly regaining
her health, and appears to be much
stronger than at any time during the
past two months.
JEWISH WOMEN MEET.
Interesting Convention Held in New York
CityAddress by Dr. Morals, o!
New York, Nov. 18. At the conven
tion of the Jewish women today the
motto "Faith and Humanity" was
adopted as the most suitable one to be
inscribed on the badges. The report
of the committee on constitution was
read by Mrs. Pauline Rosenberg, of
Philadelphia. It sugested some changes
in the constitution, chielly in connec
tion with the duties of officers. Some
of the delegates objected to the word
"national" In the title of the organ
ization and the word was dropped, and
the name of the organization changed
Into "Council of Jewish Women." It
was also voted to amend the constitu
tion so us to allow the election of two
Another amendnieut was offered,
suggesting that a vice-president for
each state, territory and foreign coun
try be nominated. Mrs. Desola, of
Montreal, protested against the words
"foreign country," and a delegate In
the rear of the hall cried out: "Canada
will soon be with us." This was greet
ed with applause.
Finally the words "foreign country"
were omitted, and "any other country
where an organization exists" was
Rev. Dr. Morals, of Philadelphia, was
Introduced and addressed the conven
tion at some length on "Judaism." He
I had entortninpd a disparaging concep
tion regarding my sisters in the faith In
the fur west. I had thought they were
so derelict ill the observance of religion
that their homes would cease to be recog
nized as Jewish and their children cease
to be Jews. I was assured, however, bv
correspondents and by word of mom ft
mat iney are again in line lighting with
spiritual weapons for Judaism. I beg of
you to stand for your religion, and In or
der to stand yon must understand what
It is. Going to the synagogue Is not to hu
a Jew; you must go to the source, the liv
ing louniam-tno ijinie.
Dr. Morals condemned what he al
luded to as the "higher criticism of
the Bible, which," he said, "was doing
a great deal of harm."
"I beg of you, my dear sisters," he
continued, "to study the Bible 'und not
to be biased by any one and judge with
your own minds." Dr. Morals' address
was received with applause.
There was quite a duscusslon about
the article of the constitution defining
the objects of the council, some claim
ing that the promotion of Judaism was
not sutflclently brought out. This dif
ficulty was removed by making the
article read: "The purposes of this
organization are to serve the best in
terests of Judaism, and to bring about
closer relations among Jewish woman."
The election of officers will occur to
morrow, and judging from the talk of
some of the delegutes this afternoon,
it is likelv to be a hot fight. Mrs.
Kuskey, of New York, said New York
was not represented on the nominat
ing committee, and Miss American, the
secretary, replied that New York had
but 3S paid members, which was much
less than the membership of many
other sections. The New York dele
gates are. It Is said, determined thnt
some of the national officers shall be
selected from New York. At present
all the officers are from Chlcnco.
The evening session was held at the
Temple Bethel, Seventy-fifth street and
Fifth avenue. This was the first time
any of the meetings has been held In a
synagogue. Mrs. Hannah Solomon pre
sided. The first paper on "Circle
Study," was read by- Miss Elizabeth
Hirschfield, of Buffalo. Mrs. Henrietta
Fra,:k. of Chicago, read a paper on
"Mission Schools as an End and a
Means"-was the subject of a puper read
by Mrs. Henry Hanii, of Philadelphia.
In part she said:
Hampered by adverse circumstances
attendant on the minority, the religious
training of our children is difficult, but
how much more so in our mission
"With the Influx of the Russians be
gan a labor Involving not only money
but energy, endurance and sympathy.
A people came to us persecuted, de
spised and exiled. Here was a people
to be cared for and civilized and the
American Israels undertook the task."

DEATH OF E. W. CURRY.
The Direct Result or His Initiation
Into a Lodge of Elks.
Des Moines, la., Nov. IS. E. W. Cur
ry, chairman of the Democratic state
committee, died this morning in his
room at the Hotel Savoy. His death
was the direct result of Injuries re
ceived by being admitted into a Des
Moines lodge of Elks about two months
ago. As part of the ceremony he was
blindfolded and placed in a chair with
an Iron seat. Then a lighted lamp un
der the seat, with the expectation when
it got too hot he would get up. But he
sat still until he was badly burned. His
trousers were burned away and the
flesh fearfully scorched. He was put
in new clothes and did not realize at
the time that the Injuries were serious.
In a few days blood poison set In and
he grew worse steadily. It was his de
sire that the real cause of his injuries
suouiu not be made public, and an
other cause was assigned for the ill
ness, the truth only becoming public to
day. An evening paper published a
highly sensational story that the In
juries were caused by placing him, in
the process of the Initiation ceremony,
In an electrical chair and turning on a
current which burned him badly, but
this is denied by the Elks.

THE EXPERIENCE OF PROSPECTORS
They Lash Themselves to Trees
While the Snow Slides Down the
MountainsOne Man Becomes a
Itnviug Muniuc by Reason of the
Suffering KudurcdA Train Stalled
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 18. Residents of
Seattle and vicinity who by reason of
the tloods and snow have been virtual
ly prisoners in the Fastness of the Cas
cade mountains since Friday last, are
coming In, some on gravel trains, some
afoot and others by boat. Thev tell
harrowing tales of suffering, devasta
tion and destruction. The situation as
described in the dispatches from day
to day has not been exaggerated Jn the
least. If Indeed, the fury of the storm
has been fully portrayed. There has
been human suffering, and no doubt
many miners and prospectors in the
Cascades have been either drowned or
have met death from snow slides.
Four prospectors, headed by Joseph
Nicholson, arrived this afternoon. One
of the men is a raving maniac by rea
son of the suffering and hardships en
dured in their effort to get out of the
mountains. Saturday night to prevent
being swept down the mountains by
snow slides they lashed themselves to
trees where they remained In the
drenching rain for six or eight hours.
Meanwhile great boulders of earth and
huge sections of snow kept sliding down
Into the canyons and gulches below.
Trees were torn up by the roots and
curried away by the avalanche and
the noise was horrifying. At day
break on Sunday the prospectors tore
away the lashings and began their per
ilous Journey out of the mountains.
They followed Hold Creek to Luke
Keeschler, tramping through snow
four und five feet deep, crossing small
streams on logs, finally finding their
way to the point where the Northern
Pucific crosses the Cascades and thence
they proceeded down the railroad track
to this city. They were three days,
walking thirty-five miles, crossing
small streania by means of driftwood
and the larger ones in row boats. They
report that the great Northern west
bound overland passenger train with
forty-one passengers due here last Fri
day morning. Is stalled between Wel
