in u international monctnry conference
having been adopted, five scnutors,
friendly to silver, but not bolterH,

Senator Woleott is working hard, and
tho plan will probably be presented to

The tendency among tho members of
tho committee is to leave tho number

to tho president and thus depart from
tho precedent established In the Fifty
third Congress, when provision was
made for the representation of this
country at a conference then proposed
by dividing the selection of the con
forrecs between thu president und
Congress. An appropriation will bo
provided for carrying the net into ef
fect. It is not yet definitely determined
how far tho proposed legislation will
go in providing for this country to
tuko the Initiative in securing thu con
ference, but the probabilities aro that
this also will bo left to the discretion
of the President.
Thu bill is being prepared to provide
tho means for enrrying out tho Ilepub

tho committee generally hold that Mi'.

Nr.w Yoiik, Dec. 2 8 A Madrid spe
cial says: It is rumored tlmt General
Weyler. has delayed fresli operations
against tho insurgents in order to givo
time to discover tho disposition of tho
bands and their chiefs since tho death
of Mncco, with a view to feeling his
way to proparing tho ground for fin
islinig tho present Cuban war like the
past insurrections in Spain and Cuba,
where money and unotllcial negotia
tions prove more telling arguments
than force of arms, directly tho Insur
gents saw no moro hope of foreign aid.
It is also bolioved in diplomatic cir
cles that Spain will tuko advantage of
the dispositions of Presldeu Cleveland
nnd Secretury Gluey to negotiate
quickly and directly with tho United
States to secure American neutrality
by granting discriminating concessions
in tho contemplated Cuban tariff and
fair promises of colonial autonomy be
fore the accession of MeKlnley.

Washington, Dec. 23. It is denied
ofllclally und authoritatively that any
European government either direct
or inuirccuy nan mnae any representa
tions whatever to tho United States to
restrain or prevent its free action in
connection with tho Cuban Insurrec
tion, A similar report was denied by
authority several weeks ago. A. Von
Unicning, secretary of the German cm
bissy, Fald that so far as the embassy
here was concerned no such intimation
had been received. He discredited tho
whole story. "Wo havo not hoard ti
word concerning Cuba," said he, "for
threo months."
Senator-elect Money of Mississippi,
now n member of the House foreign
niYuirs committee, proposes to leave
Tampa, Flu., next Saturday morning
for Havana, to remain a wcclc or ten
days in Cuba. Ho will seek an audi
enee with Captain General Weyler and
will ask him to provide an escort and
a flag of truce, so that he can go into
the heart of the territory occupied by
the insurgents, with a view of finding
out what is going on. Mr. Money says
he is determined to make as lengthy a
journey into tho interior of Cuba as
his time will permit, and it is under
stood that he will endeavor to com
municate with the insurgents whether
Captain General Weyler grants him
permission or not. He realizes that it
will be a risky thing for him to proceed
on his own account if a permit is refused
hiin. However, he is so titixioun to
have trustworthy information that ho
will take the chances, even if lie finds
himself luter locked up in prison. It
is his intention to stato frankly to the
captain general that ho visits the
island because it is Impossible to
procure from President Cleveland or
Secretary Olney tiny ofllclnl Informa
tion regarding the condition of affairs
in Cuba, und, as a member of Congress
and of the House committee on foreign
afl'alrs,"ho wishes to know what ho is
doing before he casts his vote for or
against any ono of tho several resolu
tions pending.
Mr. Money was tin ofllcer in tho Con
federate army during the war under
General Forrest, and his four years'
service in the field whetted his interest
in military operations. He thinks
that his visit will nt least enable him

Illinois National Hank OllU'crx nro l'cnl
tent. Washington, Dec. 28. When a com
mltteo of directors of the collapsed
National Hank of Illinois called on
Comptroller Ecklcs to-day for it per
sonal conference regarding tho bank's
affairs, the doors wero locked and
slrict secrecy obsorved.
Tho directors stated to Mr. Eckels
that they desired to mako a stntemftrt
in regard to their connection with the
affairs of the bank and toexplnin their
relation to its management, sinec the
letter written to them in 1895.
Mr. Eckels said that he felt confident
that the management of the bank had
been very negligent, nnd the directors
explained that since the receipt of Mr.
Eckels' letter they had repeatedly tried
to close negotiations for the sale of
the Calumet Electric railway, but the
business conditions of the country, the
long political campaign and the trouble
with tho Diamond Match company had
caused a failure of these negotiations
thus far. They expressed a desire to
do everything In their power to aid tho
receiver in realizing the utmost from
tho assets of tho bank.
Mr. Eckels Impressed upon the di
rectors that ho would expect them to
make every possible effort to realize
from the Calumet road and nt the best
figure possible.
Tho delegation informed the comp
troller that they had no one to recom
mend for receiver, and no protest to
make against the appointment of any
one, and wero perfectly willing to co
operate with nnyone Mr. Eckels might
see fit to appoint.
The delegation said the directors
were very hopeful that the affairs of
the bank would be completely settled
within the next twelve months and
that every obligation would bo met,
and that the assets probably would be
sufficient to leave the real esthto cicar.
This afternoon Mr. Adams of tho
commltteo gave out tho following:
"We had a very pleasant interview
with tho comptroller. Our purpose
was to show whut we had tried to do
to Improvo the condition of the bank
sineo tho receipt of the comptroller's
letter a year ago. Our talk was main
ly about the Calumet Electric. We
feel that the comptroller will do nil he
can to realize all that can possibly bo
realized out of the assets."

Hank Directors Misled.
Chicago, Dec. 21. "Never did i see
on the book kept for the purpose, of
informing the directors of tho bank ns
to who were the applicants for loans
the mine of the Calumet Electric rail
way." said Director Page of the defunct
National Hank of Illinois to-day when
asked how such large loans were made
by the bank and ostensibly given with
the sanction of the directors.
Mr. Pago said as to the manner in
which tho business of tho bank, us far
as tho directors were concerned, was
conducted: "The directors appointed
from among themselves what you
might term for convenience sake
an auditing committee The plan
was to let one director drop out
caeli mouth, some other taking his
place. Eacli day the committee would
meet at the bank. Its business being to-
p;m upon tho applications for loans.
A record of these applications was
kept in a book designed for the pur
pose. In this book was also kept op
posite the name of each applicant a
record of the collntcrnl offered to ef
fect tho loan. When the committee
wns ready for business Mr. Schneider
would come into the room, bringing
with him this book and with it an
other book in which was recorded the
daily balance of the would-be bor
rower and also a record of how much
ho had previously borrowed."
i'iii:9ii)i:NT hchnkiukii to iilami:.
"You say that Mr. Schneider used to
bring this in?-'
"Almost invariably. Seldom was
Mr. Hammond before the committee.
At odd times he would bo called In to
answer some question as to an appli
cant's business or to clear up a point
about some collateral offered, but Cap
tain Schneider was almost always tho
bearer of the books. The committee
would look over the books carefully,
and in some instances refuse to sanc
tion a loan. In others tlio loan nsked
for would be cut down, nud In cases
where the applicant and security wero
nil right the accommodation was of
course granted."'
"Did the committee never ask to
see the actual collateral offered or did
they simply take the word of Mr.
Schneider or Mr. Hammond that the
security was actually in tho bank and
actually what it purported to be in
the memorandum book'?''
"Wo had been in business with Mr.
Schneider nnd Mr. Hammond many of
us for thirty years. To havo made
such a demand of them would have
bfcen a personal insult."
"Were not the suspicions of the com
mittee ever aroused by the lnrge sums
loaned to the Calumet Electric'.'" .
"Never did I see the name of the
Calumet Electric railway appear on
this book as an applicant for n loan."
"What have you to say about the
published statements regarding Mr.
Hammond s connection with tlio un
explained transactions?"
"They aro all true; every one of
them " I
The Post declares that W. A. Ham
mond, second vice president of the
closed National Hank of Illinois, is to
be made tho scapegoat of the failure,
and continues, quoting a friend of
Hammond: "Hammond is a broken
man to-day, but he is not any more to
blame for tho amount of money loaned
on Calumet securities than are the
members of the finance committee
of the bank and Its directors. It wns
necessary to tlio purposes of it man
conncctc'd with tho South Chicago City
railway and an ofllcer of one of tho
best known banks of this city, to de
preciate the Calumet Electric road's
stock, and to this end these two men
brought about the wrecking of the
Notional Hank of Illinois. Of tho
bank's funds S2, 17.",0!)() had been loaned
on the Calumet sccuritio. The plun
for wrecking was brilliant. Cause
on investigation, depreciate Calu
met stock und buy it. Then com
bine this valuable property of sixty
three miles of new track equipment
and franchise with the South Chicngo
railway, eventually combining with
tlio Chicago City railway and make n
fortune of millions within five or ten
years. The truth of the mat-er is that
members of the finance committee nnd
certain directors of the Nntional Dank
of Illinois have known the amount of
the Calumet loan an I have hoped to
make individual fortunes on the suc
cess of the venture.
George Schneider, tho president of
tho National Dank of Illinois, lives in
u rather showy brick residence at 2000
Michigan avenue. He is 73 years of
age and Is rather feeble In health.
When called upon to-day he said he

John Baker came down Miller river on
a big fir tree. Mr. Baker seated him
self at tlio butt end of tho tree, and af
ter going down about a half n mile he
had company. A hugo black bear,
swimming for his life in tho seething
water, climbed on tho tree and station
ed himself about thirty feet from tho
man. In addition to hisalready preca

Bear was about as badly frightened as
tho other fellow, and when the current
finally drifted the tree to dry land, tho
bear took to ills heels with as much
alacrity as Baker. Seattlo Post
