Senator John H. Mitchell, of Ore
gon, will contribute to the Jnne number
of The Forum a powerful and convinc
ing article advocating the "Election of
Senators by Popular Vote." He thinks
that the political and moral supremacy
of the people can be rightfully expressed
and maintained only when they exercise
this right directly and not vicariously.
He believes that the election of United
States Senators by popular vote will (1)
afford an efficient remedy for the many
evils resulting from the present system
of Senatorial elections such as length
of time consumed and frequent failure.
to choose, and the consequent distrac
tion of the legislative mind from its
proper business; (2) discourage the use
of improper means to influence the con
trol of Senatorial elections; (3)" greatly
diminish the temptation to gerryman
der; (4) enlarge Ihe political rights of
the individual voter relating to suffrage;
(5) eliminate from elections involving
the selection of members of the legisla
ture one great cause for irritation and
unseemly contention wherein as a rule
the question upon which everything is
made to turn is as to how this or that
man will vote for Senator, rather than
upon the question as to his fitness for
the office of legislator; and (6)
effectively tend to the destruc
tion of "boss rule". Senator Mitchell
contends that a thoroughly aroused and
enlightened public opinion demands the
change and urges that this demand be
respected by congress to the extent of
giving the people of the several states,
through their representatives in the leg
islatures, an opportunity to pass upon
the question; for, in his opinion, "no
harm is likely to come to representative
republican government in America by in
trusting to the qualified electors of the
nation the right to choose by popular
vote the men who are to make their

sales That Harrison Telegraphed to Hiaa
Darius- Indiana Convention.
Pittsburg, May 2-1. During a con
versation at Beaver last night Senator

that have been traveling around since
the Indiana state convention. It is
said that on the evening of the conven
tion Harrison telegraphed Quay aud
Platt, asking the question: "What do

not reply. The senator is credited with
keeping Harrison from going to the

Speaking of the talk of Hastings for
vice president, the senator remarked

i Fleeted Bishop to Africa.
Cleveland, May 24. Bishop Warren
presided over today's session of the
Methodist general conference.
Dr. J. M. Buckley presented the re
port of the committee on episcopacy.
The administration and character of
the bishops was approved and Bishop
Thoburn was declared effective, while
the committee reported in highly eulo
gistic terms of the noneffeotiveness of
Bishop Taylor of Africa and his retire
ment was recommended and the report
was concurred in.
The committee reported in favor of
missionary bishops in India, South
America and Africa, but as Dr. Buckley
was opposed to one in South America,
Dr. Kynett took charge of the report.
Dr. Kynett opened the debate in favor
of the report. Others who spoke were
Dr. Payne of New York, Dr. Neeley of
Philadelphia and Dr. Buckley.
G. W. Manns of New York presented
a substitute which declared it not ex
pedient to elect missionary bishops ex
cept possibly a successor for Bishop-
Taylor. Dr. Hamilton withdrew his
motion, and after still more debate Dr.
Ackerman moved the previous question.
An effort to lay Dr. Manns' substitute
on the table failed and a vote on accept
ing the substitute resulted in its ac
ceptance by a vote of 257 to 189.
Cleveland, May 26. There were
stormy scenes in the Methodist general
conference Monday. It was by all odds
the most tumultuous session that has yet
been held. There was a clash between
the miuisterial aud lay delegates, and
for a time in the afternoon Bishop
Hurst, who was in the chair, lost all
control of the assemblage. A dozen
delegates were on their feet at the same
time shouting for recognition, calling
for rulings of the chair on points of
order which had never been heard, and
altogether the scenes were more excit
ing than usually witnessed in political
conventions. The contest came over the
fourth section of the new constitu
tion. When the section was read an
amendment providing for equal repre
sentation of the laymen in the general
conference was proposed. The dis
cussion was participated in by Rev.
Dr. Alexander Ashley of Washington,
Rev. Dr. J. B. Graw of New Jersey,
Henry French of San Jose, Cal., Rev.
L. B. Wilson of Baltimore and Dr. A.
J. Kynett of Philadelphia. Many bitter
things were said, and it looked for a
time as if there could be no reconcilia
tion between the ministers and laymen.
Finally, however, peace was restored by
the withdrawal of the amendment, with
the understanding that the whole mat
ter should be brought up again in a
different form. The election of Dr. J.
O. Hartsell of Louisiana as missionary
bishop for Africa, to succeed Bishop
Taylor, who was retired, was the in
cident of the morning session. The
conference decided to hold two sessions
daily until the adjournment in order
that the business might be disposed of.
Doings of the Presbyterians.
SARATOGA.May 26. The Presbyterian
t neral assembly yesterday decided to
take no action in reference to the church
unity, favoriug the report which was
presented on this subject and which
called for a declaration that this is a
Protestant christian country. If the
forenoon hour had not expired before
action could be had. it would have dis
charged its committee on the relations
of young people's societies to the
church. But tho surprise of the day
came at the opening of the afternoon
session, when a paper was submitted in
regard to the $2,000,000 Presbyterian
building in New York by Rev. William
M. Hubbard. The paper read to the
conference submitted two propositions.
John S. Kennedy of New York city of

the hands of the church, purchasing it
at the original cost. Miss Rachael Len

ing, the historic Lennox homestead, at
Twelfth street and Fifth avenue.offered
to repair and make such alterations in
the premises as might be desired, pro
vided the mission boards would return
and occupy their old quarters. The
paper concluded with a resolution to ac
cept both propositions and thanking
Miss Kennedy for her generous gift and
expressing appreciation of "her gener
osity and fidelity to the church of her
fathers." The discussion when the sub
ject is brought up promises to be ani

We have recently drawn attention,

business that tho national banks of the
United States have been transacting
since the advent of a Democratic ad
ministration, and we are now enabled to
confirm the results of previous investi

the great Democratic "improvement" in
business this year has resulted iu a still
further decrease of the amount of money
placed out on loan by and also of tho
aggregate amount of money on deposit
in the national banks.
Taking first the amounts of the loans
at the different periods given, as ascer
tained by investigations of the comp

The top notch of business prosperity
for the national banks was reached in
1892, under our protective tariff nat
urally, when business was active and
there was a good demand for money.
After the panic of 1893 there was a
temporary revival in 1891 and again in
1895, corresponding with the fitful
Democratic trade "revivals. " But these
were merely temporary, and the great
"business improvement" of the present
year, with its unprecedented number of
trade failures and decreasing bank
clearings, has brought the money lend
ing business of national banks back to
their condition in 1889, thus correspond
ing with the output of our factories and
the employment of our labor, both of
which have retrogressed more than half
At New York city, where there are
so many bankers who believe in free
trade and who are ready to do the bid
ding of a free trade administration, it
is interesting to note that the amount
of money loaned by the national banks
on Sept. SO, 1892, was $344,200,000.
But on Feb. 28 of the present year it
was only f325.367.000, a falling off of
nearly $19,000,000, which represents
an annual loss of interest approximat
ing a round million dollars. Some of
the other cities that show a loss under
Democracy in their banking business
are here appended as an "object lesson"

These are instructive figures. But we
find those of the deposits iu the nation
al banks to be still more so. Here again
the top notch was in 1892, over $2,000,
000,000, while there has been a falling
off of more than $350,000,000 in indi
vidual deposits since 1892, the amount
a couple of months ago, on Feb. 28.
1896, being equal only to the deposits of
1889. Thus the retrogression in the
business of national banks has been, ac
cording to both deposits and loans and
discounts, one of more than six ysara

I in 1892 .Scpt. SO. the net derjosita in
the national banks of New York city
were $891,900,000. On Feb. 28, 1896,
they were only $302,080,448, a loss of
nearly $90,000,000 in deposits at the
Empire City under Democracy. On the
same date in 1892 the deposits in the
Chicago national banks were $106,500,
000, but they had fallen off to $61,793,
486 this year, a loss of nearly $45,000,
000. At St. Louis they were $29,200,
000 in 1892, but only $16,984,477 a con
pie of months ago. When the Democrat
ic convention meets in Chicago next
month, it should "point with pride" to
these conditions of Democratic prosperi
ty and Democratic "good times. " Other
cities that show smaller deposits in their
national bank deposits since the salva

Business men and bankers will appre
ciate these "conditions that confront
them." It may be well to ask what has
become of tho $3.10.000,000 of money
that was on deposit in the national banks
in 1892? Is it all hoarded in old teapots
and stockings or has it all gone to Eu
