Washington, Jane 27. A regular
hnsincss meeting of the cabinet
was held yesterday. The absentees
were Secretaries Blaine and Proctor
aad Attorney-General -Miller. The
principal topic of discussion was the
continued coinage of silver after July 1,
and the secretary of the treasury pre
sented considerable data on the sub
Ject After the meeting. Secretary Foster
made the folio wing statement in regard
to the silver question: "After a full
and careful consideration of the law
relating to the coinage of silver Secre
tary Foster finds that the act of March
3, 1891, requires thst the secretary of
the treasury shall, as soon as practica
ble, cola the trade dollar bars into sil
ver dollars. He also finds that 5150,099
has been appropriated for the rccoln
age of the subsidiary coinage into
such denominations as shall best serve
to give it circulation. There is con
stant demand for small coins, principal
ly dimes, which the mints hare not
been able to supply. The secretary of
the treasury has decided that his first
duty ia this matter is to obey the di
rection of congress. Congress has or
dered the coinage of the trade dollar
bars Into standard silver dollars. The
coinage of the trade dollar bars in this
manner will transform what coit $5,
087,795 into 55, 148,25s 1, standard dollars.
The secretary finds that it will require
perhaps four mouths to perform the
work of coining trade dollar bars into
standard dollars and recounting sub
sidiary silver. Therefore the question
of the continued coinage of silver dol
lars as heretofore is not a practical one
The trade dollar bullion will prob
ably be coined in an amount equal to
monthly coinage by the treasury dur
ing the present fiscal year, which has
been at the ratu of about 2.000,000
ounces per mouth. The bullion Ls
stored at the mints at New Orleans and
Philadelphia and resulted from smelt
ing trade dollars which were redeemed
under the act of March 3, 1SS7. The
total number redeemed was 7,&9,03d, of
which a portion have been coined into
subsidiary coins but the act of
March 3, 1891, provided that the
balance on hand should only be
coined into standard silver dol
lars and that as soon as practicable.
Owing to mandatory coinage of 2,000,
000 ounces, or 2,583.000 silver dollars
per month, as required by act of July
14, 1899, until July 1, it has been im
practicable to coin any of this trade
dollar bullion. It will take between
three and four months to complete the
work of recoinage at New Orleans, and
also about two months at Philadelphia
in connection with the large amount of
subsidiary silver and the continued
coinage of minor coins.
The cabinet also decided to change
the form of the assets and liability
statements issued from the treasurer's
oflice daily and at the beginning of each
month. In tin; new form, the net sur
plus will disappear, and only an availa
ble cash balance will be carried. Other
changes of a minor character will bo
made, but what they will be has not
yet been decided by Secretary Foster.
In a general way the new form of state
ment both of. the debt and assets lia
bilities, will closely resemble the state
ments put out when Senator Sherman
was secretary of the treasury. Thcso
changes go into effect July 1, beginning
tho next fiscal year.

Judge Van Brunt said that displte the
able argument of the district attorney
he was of the opinion that no man
could be made to suffer vicariously.
All the cases cited were cases where
principals bad directly authorized their
agents to do certain things. The
present case was quiet different The
directors of the railroad are co-s-rvanLs
and agents, with the car
builders and others, and the New York
& New Ilavim Railroad Co. alone Is re
sponsible. The evidence did not con
nect the directors closely enough with
the heating of cars by stoves. The di
rectors were indicted as individuals and
not as directors. They could not bVs
held Hsble in accord with the doctrine
of respondent superior, because they
themselves were the servants of the
railroad corporation, and the co
servants of those who actually heated
the cars contrary to law. There was
no ground for holding them. "As to the
president, there Is some ground of be
lief thst he had active participation.
I, therefore, ndviv: the jury to acquit
all the defendants except President
Clark." This was promptly done. The
