THE CHINO-JAPANESE WAR, Florida's Senator Would Like to Have the Great Powers Attempt to Bring Peace — A Dull Day In the House of Representatives. WASHINGTON, Dec. 11.—Mr. Harris (Dem., Tenn.), president pro tern., called the senate to order today in the absence of Vice President Stevenson, who has not yet returned from Asheville, N. C., where he is with his family. Senators HQ1, Blackburn and Carey were in their seats for the first time this session. Mr. Morrill (Rep.,Vt.) gave notice that tomorrow he would address the senate on sundry senate bills relating to proposed financial legislation* instead of on Wednesday, as he had heretofore given; notice. A resolution was passed filling^ the vacancy in the board of regents of the Smithsonian institution at Washington by the appointment of Gardiner G. Hubbard of Washington.- On motion of Mr. Frye (Rep., Me.) a resolution was adopted requesting the secretary of war to transmit to the senate the report of the board of engineers and bridge building experts on the bridge proposed to be erected by the New York and New Jersey Bjddge company across the Hudson river. Mr. Call (Dem., Fla.) presented a resor lution setting forth that the independence of the island of Cuba is an object of great importance to the United States and to the commercial and political interests of the people of both countries and requesting the president to: commence negotiations with Spain for the recognition of the independ-ence of the island and for the guarantee' by the United States of the payment of such a sum of money as shall be agreed on between the United States and Spain. The resolution went over until tomorrow. A China-Japan Resolution. Mr. Call also presented a resolution declaring that the further prosecution of the war between China and Japan to the disintegration of the ancient government and nationality of China will not be advantageous to the peace or civilization of the nations pf the world and their progress in the arts, and that the interests of the world require that all governments shall unite in negotiating with Japan and China for the termination of the war and the settlement of their differences by arbitration on terms just and honorable to both nations, and for such guarantees by the government of China for the protection of the lives and property of the citizens and subjects of foreign governments as shall be adequate for this purpose. Without discussion the resolution was referred to the committee on foreign relations. The events of the past few days leave little room for doubt that the financial question is to be a prominent topic in the senate during the present session, and there are some facts which point to a state of affairs which may render the session one of great interest. It is understood that the Instructions of the Democratic senatorial caucus do not go to the extent of indorsing the recommendations of the president and Secretary Carlisle, but only require the finance committee to take these suggestions under consideration as they would any other suggestions bearing upon the question which might come from a creditable source. There is little doubt that the finance committee will take the subject up, but with what result is not so easily stated. In the seriate at large the plan appears fco commend itself to some of the southern senators largely because of its provisions for the removal of the state bank tax. If a bill on the lines suggested should reach the senate, it would be opposed by bhe extreme free silver men, who believe that if a law containing such provisions should be enacted it would prove a deathblow to silver. - In the House. .» Today under the rules the house devoted itself to the consideration of business reported from the committee on the District of Columbia, and immediately after the calling of committees for report the house, on motion of Mr. Heard (Dem., Mo.), chairman of the District of Columbia committee, went into committee of the whole. Postmasters Nominated. WASHINGTON, Deo. 11.—The president today s&nt to the senate the following nominations of postmasters: New York—James Halllgan, Canajo-harie; GeorgeH. McKinley, Clayton; John S. Edwards, Sayville; John C. Van Dyke, - Stamford; Thomas A. Riley, Ticonderoga; Robert B..Barrett, Washingtonville; William H. S. Smith, Hempstead; Dewitt Mc- Keel, Farmer; Winfield S.

The Secretary of the Treasury Elaborates His Scheme and Answers Questions Pat to Him by Several Melhbers. of the Committee. WASHINGTON, Dec. 11.—Secretary Carlisle appeared before the house committee on Tmnfeing and currency today to present in detail the features of the new currency plan proposed in his annual report and endorsed in the president's message. There was much interest In the hearing, as it was felt that Mr. Carlisle would lend a more popular interest to the subject than had appeared in the formal report. The crowd in attendance made it necessary to use the large room of the committee on ways and means. Besides the full membership of the committee present Senor Romero, the Mexican minister, and many members of congress were in attendance. Mr. Carlisle adopted an easy, conversational style of address. He said he was ready to answer questions from the committee as well as to elaborate his own views. He took up each section of his recent recommendations. "First—Repeal all laws requiring or authorizing the deposit of the United States bonds as security for circulation, and, second, permit national banks to issue notes to an amount not exceeding 75 per cent of their paid up and unimpaired capital, but require each bank before receiving notes to deposit a guarantee fund consisting of United States legal tender notes, including treasury notes of 1890, to the amount of 30 per cent upon the circulating notes applied for, this percentage of deposits upon the circulating notes outstanding to be maintained at all times, and whenever a bank retires its circulation, in whole or in part, its guarantee fund to be returned to it in proportion to the amount of notes received." Says Bond Plan Prevents Elasticity. Mr. Carlisle eaid he was satisfied that the present law requiring the deposit of bonds to secure circulation prevented the elasticity of the currcncy. '' The provision outlined,'' said Mr. Carlisle, "gives ample protection without the deposit of bonds as required by the present law." Mr. Carlisle said the practical value of a reserve fund of currency was • shown in 1891. There was a demand for money aggregating $10,000,000. The treasury did its best to meet the stringency, but at the time the notes were ready to distribute the demand had gone by, and many of the packages of notes were returned unopened. The secretary invited criticism of this particular section. Chairman Springer asked how the secretary's plan differed from the Baltimore plan. Mr. Carlisle explained the technical difference. The Baltimore plan proposed a deposit of 50 per cent under certain conditions, while the treasury plan proposed a deposit of 30 per cent. When a bank failed, the treasury plan contemplated an assessment on all national banks, they in turn having a lien on the failed bank. , Representative Hall (Mo.) suggested that there was a prevailing opinion that it was unsafe to place the entire question of expanding the currency in the hands of corporations and banks. "It will ^ork automatically," said Mr. Carlisle. " Banks will not expand the curr rency unless the public need it. Their interest will be to expand and contract as the common interests demand. These interests will therefore control at all times." Importance of Flexibility. The secretary urged that this flexibility was much more desirable than a rigid system by which a fixed amount of currency was always outstanding. At one time the stringency was so "great that the banks drew out $13,000,000 under pressure, and if it had not been for the Canadian banks who sent currency into this country seri-ous results might have ensued. Mr. Johnson (Ind.) asked if the Baltimore plan did not contemplate government liability. Mr. Carlisle said the ultimate liability was on the government by the ^Baltimore plan and on the banks by his plan. The banks were compelled to keep the safety fund always Intact. As fast as depleted the banks had to bring it up again. In practical operation, the secretary said, the reserve sum was always much lower than the law contemplated. A recent investigation showed it was down to $5,000,- 000 or $6,000,000, whereas it was presumably much larger for the purpose of protection. The proposed plan contemplates that the current redemption as well as the final redemption shall be met by the banks. The daily redemptions now run into the millions. This is not due to wornout or worthless currenoy, but the New York banks find themselves overloaded. They send national bank notes to the New York subtreasury and have them redeemed in United States notes or other legal classes of currency. The treasury then sends word to the national banks to redeem these notes that the subtreasuries have taken in. It sometimes t^kes the national banks two or three months to take up their notes." Large Sums "Held Up." "It results," said the secretary, "in keeping a very large sum suspended in the air. We have ,paid it out and will eventually get it back, but in the meantime this large sum is held up.'' Mr. Carlisle said the proposed plan would exactly reverse this system. Mr. Johnson asked if the ultimate liability of the government would not inspire more confidence in the currency. "Undoubtedly," said the secretary, "11 the United States government stands behind a national bank note, it inspires absolute confidence. But my idea is that the proposed plan will insure ample protection and therefore ample confidence.'' Mr. Walker (Mass.) put the hypothetical case of a failed bank and asked the coursa to be pursued under the proposed system, ••ifrrst," said tec secretary, "thebank a 30 per cent goes into the general safety funds. The notes of tho batik are then paid immediately. If the total of the- safety fund and the assets of the failed bank" are insufficient to meet all liabilities without carrying the general safety fund bel6\v the 5 per centi then all the banks are assessed to meet the liabilities, The banks 'then have a lien on the assets of the: failed banks." Mr. Walker asked wha£ Refold happen if a failed bank had no assets/sip that there would be no lien for the other banks fall back on. The secretary said ; this was in extensive DresumDtion. ^ oooiurac only six times that a national bank had been absolutely without assets. ' The Reduction of Circulation. " I • understand," said Mr. Johnson (O.), "tliat you hope to secure an elastic currency by this plan. Now, what incentive would thero be for a bank to reduce its circulation?" - . "The bank may not, at once reduce," 6aid the secretary, "but if the public does not want nfioney the bank will withdraw circulation, as there will be a small tax on it." " Tho bank will go the limit of its circulation at the outset, will it not?" queried Mr. Johnson. "Probably yes, at the start," said Mr. Carlisle, "but if thero is no demand for what is issued,the notes will be slowly but surely retired. The tax on the notes is not much, but it is enough to keep tho is sue beyond what the public needs." Mr. Johnson said he could not see the elasticity claimed. Some banks might reduce ; others might not. Tho plan showed a great inducement for issuing currency, but it did not show the same inducement for contracting currency. - Mr. Johnson (Ind.) asked as to the state bank feature of the secretary's plan. "It "Suggests merely a plan by which state banks could act if they saw fit. But the government has no direct concern with state institutions. The plan simply give? them the privilege of acting under certain conditions if'they see fit." Mr., Walker asked if Mr. Carlisle had yet drawtf a bill embodying his plan. " The* secretary replied that he had . dictated a rough draft today, and he^'would submit it to the committee. It was a tentative measure, and he would change it in some do-tails. " . The Fifth Proposition. Mr. Carlisle nest took up the fifth proposition of his plan—viz:: "No national bank note to be of lbss denomination than $10 and all riotes of the same denomination to be uniform in design, but banks desiring to redeenr their notes; in gold may have them made payable in ] that coin, the secretary of the treasury to have authority to prepare and keep on hand ready for issue upon application a reserve of blank national bank riotes for each banking association having circulation^'' The secretary Jshow_e(i1the desirability of this section. It would encourage the circulation of the silver certificates of .small denominations. The national bank notes being above $10 would give a clear field to the silver certificates under $10. These certificates were now crowded into the treasury. If they were to be kept as a part of our money, they should be forced into use, and this would aocompjish that end. Representative Hall (Mo.) asked as to the gold provision in the secretary's plan. Mr. Carlisle said this had been put in because of the "gold banks" on the Pacific coast, mainly at San Francisco, which had little paper and £much gold. It was not intended to apply to the country at large. Mr. Sperry asked if silver certificates wero redeemed in gold. "No," said the secretary; "there is a popular impression >to that effect, but it-is not correct. There are only two classes of notes redeemed in gold—viz, the greenbacks and the treasury notes under the Sherman act of 1890." In response to several questions by Mr. Johnson (O.), Mr. Carlisle said the suppositions were based on extremes. The future should look out for itself. The plan was based on the conditions of the present and not remote possibilities of the future. Mr. Sperry asked what would occur if the gold circulation should disappear. Would the government meet its obligations in silver? The secretary replied that silver was only one-fifth of the circulation. There was need of small notes to supplement tho coin. Mr. Walker asked as to the subsidiary silver coin, which led Mr. Carlisle to speak of the bad condition of the ourrenoy iaws on this point. It accumulated in the treasury at times when there was a dearth of small change at many points. "It might be cured," said the secretary, "by making subsidiary coin a legal tender." The secretary took up the ninth provision of his plan—viz, repeal all provisions of the law requiring banks to keep a reserve on account of deposits. He explained the unwisdom of the present law. '' It keeps a bank from using its reserve at a time when it needs it most," said ho. Mr. .Warner (N. Y.) asked If the allowance of national banks to do away Ttfith a reserve would not be a discrimination against state banks in states requiring a reserve. The secretary said it might be open to that objection. Mr Cobb (Ala.) asked, "Do" you hold that the government owes.no obligation to depositors?" "No more," said the secretary, "than it is obligated to protect private citizens who invest their funds in manufacturing concerns, corporations, etc.'' Miss Woumitclt's Career. SAN FRANCISCO, Dcc. 11.—Miss Mary Woumack, whose strange escapade in scattering coin on tho streets of New York resulted in her arrest, is well known in San Francisco. Her carcer hex-e was brief, but brilliant. She represented herself as a widow and rented a handsome fiat, where she entertained in good style. She had many friends among clubmen, and there was much scandal in connection with her name despite the presence of her maid, a matronly appearing female of over 40, ' The America's Cup Bace. ..
