New York, April 18 Pat Sheedy,
who lias agreed to act as intermediary
between the kidnappers of Willie Me
Cormick and the JlcCormick family in
negotiations for the boys return made
a statement today in which he said:
"I believe I will be able lo recover
the MeCorniiek boy. T won't deal with
any one by letter. If anybody has in
formation concerning the boy's where
abouts be must come to me personally.
I can tell in five minutes whether the

"My idea is that the boy never was
kidnapped for a ransom. I think lie
was taken out of revenge. I had Mr.
McCormick, the uncle of the boy, make
a searching investigation relative to
any trouble the boy's father or mother
may have had with any one. Jit this
way we found out about an Italian
who had a grudge against the boy.
"J don't think the police could object
to my action. There is certainly no
law to prevent the boy's uncle fiom

London, April IS. Tho exceptional
interest taken In tills yenr's budget
statement was shown by the crowded
condition of the house of commons
when It reassembled Hilts afternoon,
Members wete unusually numerous,
while the appearance of the galleries
tcstilied lo the deep interest of the
public In the fresh taxation proposals
leqtiired to 'meet the expenditure for
lfiOl-liiO-'. That, according to parlia
mentary paper issued this afternoon
totals ls7.0'i,f)00, inclusive of war
clK.rges, an increase of f!2,90l,000 over
the expenditure of last year.
The chancellor of tho excherpter. Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach, rose .it 4.1S p.
m., amidst rounds of cheers, and be
gan lo read the budget statement. His
opening sentence was not promising.
"During the last five years," he said,
"we have been invailably able to con
gratulate the house on a general In
crease In the prospetity of the coun
try, but the year 1U00 especially the
last six months showed symptoms of
a change. Our foriegn trade during
the year considerably increased, but in
value rather than in volume. The In
crease was derived mainly from tho
high prices of certain articles, notably
coal. Thai, naturally, must have in
jured Important Industries, especially
railways. Nevertheless, the levenuo
for the last year showed no signs of
decrease, and tho exchequer receipts
showed a surplus of j;2,S6.,000 over the
He was bound to say. however, that
the excess was due lo forestahnent on
dutiable articles. Hut for that, his es
timates would have been barely real
ized. Much could be said for and
against forestahnent, but it was an
unmitigated nuisance lo financial sta
tisticians. The only points of the revenue which
he did not touch upon wore the excep
tional receipts, owing to the mint, to
silver coinage ami to telegraph ic
celpts, which compared very unfavor
ably with the expenditure.
Tho total leceipts -amounted to .CMO,
Otft.OOO and the expenditure to JClSS.rilii,
000, or which (13,000,000 was for the
war in Sou Ih Africa and 11000.000 for
The dcllclt, .";!,207,000, shocc-d that
they had paid 1.-.,llo,000 out of the iev
cnuo for tho cost of the -war. The total
amount provided by the state last year
aggregated the enormous sum of .Cl'JS,
"As to the national debt," said llio
chancellor of the exchequer, "il slands
In painful contrast with last year. But
the funded debt has decreased by 1,
4J5.000. On April 1 the national debt
stood at .COTS.COO.OOO an increase of
.m,000,000 on account of Ihe war."
Turning to the present year, the
chancellor said that the I otal 'estimat
ed expenditure was 17S,OOu,000. On
the existing basis it was estimated that
the revenue would bo iriL',2.M,00rt, leav
ing a delicti of about r.lo.OOO.OOO.
"How Is thlH deficit to be met','"
asked Sir Michael. "I will never be
responsible for the fatal policy of pay
ing the whole cost or the war out ot
loans', without putting1 a reasonable
amount on tho taxpayers of the day.
Plan to Tax Coal,
Iu iht; further cmuse of his state
ment, he said:
"My next proposal is a novel one, un
known in this country for forty-live
years. It is an export duty of a shill
ing a Ion on coal. In aiming to secure
a i avenue from coal, I am not sacrific
ing trade. Tho imposition ot' a shilling,
which Is Infinitely less than tho iluelit
atlons In price, will do no real Injury
to the coal trade, even supposing that
tho export of coal Is checked, t am
not sure that even that result will be
an evil. Fiom this sourco I expect B'.',
lOO.OnO, making an aggregate of 11,
000,000 from new taxation.
"My final balance sheet will he; From

"I think the house will see the war

of ruin. (Opposition cheers gieeteii this
rental k.) This can no longer he con
sideieil. Tho small war has tost .CIM,

The liberals In the lobby declared
that tho budget proposals afford them
the best electioneering weapon they
have hud for twenty years. Onu liberal
figured out thut the war had eofct 1,.
000 for every Hoer killed.
Theie Is little doubt that In ralblng
new taxes Instead of Inci easing old
ones, Sir Michael 1 licks-Ueaeh has
courageously courted much hostility
and given the liberals un opportunity
to close their ranks and to uttack the
government on Us financial policy.
'.Many ministerialists are (Unsatisfied
because the government has failed to
grant differential treatment to tfee col
onics iu the sugar tax.
The coal duty, however, seems des
tined to ex'ite Ihe keenest opposition,
tt ha,s created consternation In Wales
and tho north of Knglaml. Tho north
count! y exporters to the continent ns
ncrl. Unit the duly will almost prevent
effective ooinpetlllo'i abroad with
Westphallan coal. In South Wales, It
Is urged that the duly will Injure tho
miners and materially assist tho
United yifites and Germany.
Mr. William Abraham, 1'mllcnl mem
ber for Glamorganshire, who Is presi
dent of tho Welsh Miners' Federa
tion, said, In tho course of an inter
view, that he was extremely surprised
at tho proposal of such a tax, adding:
"The ultimate result will probably
be the closing down of scores ot Welsh
collieries tint! the throwing of thous
ands out of employment. Such a tax
Is wrong lit principle and will inevit
ably cause the overthrow of tin gov
ernment." Tho shipping interests, which aie
very powerful lit the house of com
mons, are strongly opposed to the coal
duty. Altogether, although the gov
ernment organs have nothing but
puilse for the budget, they fain would
ndmlt that If the near future were to
btlng bye-elections, the results might
be unfavorable to the government.

Pittsburg. April IS. There will be ml
strike In the plants of the American
Sheet Steel company. The trouble that
broke out In the Dewees Wood plant
In McKcespot-l, last, week, 'and which
fop a liniij threatened to cause a. gen
eral -tril. of all union iron and steel
workers iu fhe country.has been settled
In an amicable manner.
The members of the general execu
tive boiud of amalgamated association
of Iron, steel and tin workers hold a.
long session today. H started out with
a. general feeling that a. strike would
come, as the workers would not con
cede the only point In dispute (leln
statemonl. of tho men discharged, ns
claimed, for joining the union), and si
far as could bo learned the officials of
the American Sheet Steel company
were equally determined.
During the morning .session of tliu
executive 'board, John .Tarrett. acting
for the steel company, appeared with
a proposition for the members to con
sider regarding a .settlement of the
difficulty. J 11 general this proposition
was that all the men discharged from
the Wood plant should bo reinstated,
including Ilolloway, and that all but
Holloway should return lo work at
once, Holloway to 'be relumed within
The board insist.-! th.ir Holloway
should be ti'ofiii Vi:i the aauie mariner
as the others, and finally Mr. .Tarretc
changed Ills proposition to Include Hol
loway after three days' suspension.
It, was " o'clock this evening when
l'lesident Shaffer unnounccd that a,
final agreement had just been signed,
as a. result of the conference, which
had been on since an hour before noon,
between John .Tarrett 'and the advisory
board of the Amalgamated association.
