regarding tbe trouble in tne
Bank of England:
Another sensation has buret npon
the financial world involving no less an

dome days ago it was publicly an
aeuaced that Chief Cashier F. iiay
the Bank of England had resigned his

twM retire on a pension liberally
voted by the directors.
It now appears that Cashier May. so
I am informed, not only retires, nut
his resignifion was demanded by the
directors and no pension is given uirc
for the reason that he has involved tbe
tank in a heavy loss. The cashier was
intrusted with almost absolute power
hi Baking investments. A short time
tats the directors found cause to ques
tion, the soundness of his judgment,
which was subjecting the bank to un
accustomed loss. They voted to retire
him on a half pension.
After a further investigation of the
nature of bis investments they decided
te retire him peremptorily and re: used

doubt that wool, coal aud iroo ore will
be placed on tbe free list. It is under
stood also that a material reduction
will be made on steel rails. The duty
on tin plate, as has been previously an
nounced, will probably be reduced from
2:10 to one percent. A meeting of all
the democratic members of the com

sub-committees having in charge the

later than Monday following. Tbe bill
will then be reported to the full com

Iii iiui ForHiHr Medal
Washington, Nv. 14. There is
much comtilaining among exhibitors
over the great delay in awarding the
World's Fair medals to successful com-
petitors. Congret-s has. received nu
mereroas letters on the subject, bat in-,
quiry at the treasury does not reveal
any indication that 'he medals will be
ready for distribution for some months
As many t.f the exhibitors expect to
make the most of their medals in an
advertising way, some of them desiring
to incorporate the design in new trade
mark to be adopted, they complain
that the great delay will rob them of
much of the commercial advantage
which they expected to reap in return
for the heavy expenses involved in
making a world's fair exh.bit.
The design prepared by St. Gardens
for tbe official medals has not yet been
accepted and it is still even uncertain
whether the work may be done by the
United States mint. The plan of the
treasury, which is very detailed and
contemplates medals of elegant work
manship, would require four or five
months, as it would necessitate the
stumping of some of the medals 400 or
600 times. Hut a cheaper process of
manufacture has been suggested which
would make it possible to turn out the
23,000 in a few weeks. This does not
meet with much favor, however, auil
unless the indignant exhibitors bring
the matter to the attention of eongrei s
it is not likely the medals will be ready
before next summer.
The treasury department suggests
U '.hat the delay is attributable to Mr.
Thatcher or the designer, who should
have furnished ihe designs months
ago, in order that the manufacture
might have been began at a much ear

S. Hastder, formerly chief cleik of the
Iutenor department, and now receiver
of tbe laud otlice at Enid, Okl, is in
Washington. He brings a new version
of the complaints about the opening of
the Cherokee Htrip The fper ing, b
says, was generally sansfictory and
the complains come from those who
desire to make trouble and bring the
administration into msrepute. Captain
Ha&Mer says the chief promoters of
dissatisfaction are a iuail f iction of
iinno-rat-S, who were aiiirerrd by the
fact tha' the land officers and other
f'fticials sent to Oklahoma and the
Strip were from outside the Territory.
Tbe sending of ouL-ide men. he said,
broke up the schemes formed to cap
ture the best land in the Strip, and a
number had missed an opportunity of
making the money tn.it they had antic-
ipated. To these dis ippointed demo-
crate were joined some republicans who
were anxious to make political capital

all the charges, col' ,lainU and calls
