mercia ] circuits anti to fix our currency on a
stable foundation : that , however varied the
forms 01 our currency , there can be but one
standard 01 value , and that , by comlou con-
sent of nations , Is gold ; that thirty years
after the close of the war congress should
begin the redemption of Its promise to pay ,
commonly called greenbacks , Issued to carry
on that war : that the prevailing paralysis
01 trade Is due , not to a lack of curreucy , but
to a lack of conflenc , and that confidence
cannot be restored until It Is lormaly de-
dared by congress that our wilngness to
meet all otlgatons Is as great ns our ability ,

the United States went further than Great

The Japanese looked upon our Ielon with
deep gratitude a the first recognition that

CHICAGO , ] eb. G.-The rumor that lie
hul 01 the lost steamer Chlcorn had been
slghtel off South Chicago cnused the great-
est exctement today In this city. Tugs were
se'lt ' out lu lursull 01 what n number of observers -
servers lied declared was the hul , and when
darkness eamo emi this o\'enlng tIme Ink was
being searehe ] In tim hope that time story
wonll prove true , The report that the wreck
or the missing vessel hnl ] been seen readied
the city through the fire lepaitmluent I
was telephoned to ChIef Swee/es office from ,
South Chicago by Captain M. J. Powers oi
gnglno No. H , which Is located at South
Chlcng Shortly before 1 o'clock In the
forenoon the nlenton 01 Captain Powers was
called to a dark object far out an the lake
nml about opposite the mouth 01 the Calumet -
met river. The object , a long , black hue
like the hul or a vessel , rose and fell with
time swell of the sea.
The rumor spread lu South Chicago lint
time wreck of the Chleor was In view , antI
In I very short tme crowds gathered along
time shore and glasses were focused emi the
object , which was drifting rapidly toward the
southeast Caltaln Powcrs Bent a message ta
the chief of the deparumment. (
TIme fireboat Cliumet was seut out early In
the afernoon , and n mnnher of other lgs ,
Imong them time Protecton a 11 the Mor-
ford , ] e'l the mouth 01 time Chicago river and
steamed ns last as ICssible ] to South Chicago
to search for the wrecl
ICE ETARUS PUHSUIT.
In the meantma nn effort was malIc to
send out tugs [ rom South Chicago , but I
was unsuccessful on account of the Ice. The
fireboat Chicago wns lying In the Calumet ,
hut between I and the alIen lake was over
hail a utIle of river frozen Irom hank to
banle , Ito leo beIng several feet thlcll. The
Chicago could malle no Impression Ulln the
Icl I was afterward joined hy the tugs
Holday anti udder , hut the three combined
were unable to mal\ au ) headway ] , and the
attempt to reach the lake was given UII.
Vt'imllo these efforts were being made the
supposed wreck had passed out of Ilght ,
Whim last seen It was In a mass 01 lotng i
Ice which was being carrlell by the current I
toward time southern end of the hake , Its' '
course being slightly toward the east At
4 o'cloclt In the nfernoon the Baltmore &
Ohio raIlroad ofered to place a traIn nt the
service of the authorltcs to carry rescuing
partIes to the stations along Its line In Indiana -
ana which are close to time lake. Captain
Jenkins-and a detail of policemen and several -
oral firemen Cram the South Chicago eoml3-
nice avaIled themselves of the offer of the
railroad company and : horty alter 4 o'cioclc
an engine und one car started for Miller , lad ,
which lies close tQ the hake ] and Is about
ten les cast of Wliiimig. ( . It was believed
from UIO direction which the supposed
wreck was ( lrHtngwjlen Iqsl 'secnfrOm
South Chicago that It would come nsli re
In the nellhhorhood 01 MIller. i
Captain Powers , In an Interview , describes '
tIme supposed wreclt as a long black line ,
across the white /ell of Ice. I
"I do not cay that II was time hull of the
Chlcra , " he saId , "but It had the appearanc
of tIme Iialf-submiierged hull or a vessel. I
was about the length of a vessel like the
Chlcora , but I could not see It distinctly
enough to mallo out definitely what pos'tion
to ( be hull , with all
It was In. H appeared be 1 hul al
anti It could be
the upper works goue , ant upon coult
seeu several black Qbjects , which mIght be I
taken for human beings , hut there was n ,
sign 01 life. I thought a lie time that I I
wJ the hull c.f the Chicora , and 1 thlnlt so' '
yet. . H seemed ta he drifting very last , and I
when I saw It first It accrued to me to be
three mies out. I have seen several p rsll !
this afternoon who declared that living input '
could be seen on I , but I saw nothIng to In
dic.ute that there was anything on It Ihl
was alive. "
A. J. Davenport , the keeper of the lighthouSe -
house at the mouth 01 the Calumet , watched
the object for more than ( nn hour , but he
w : : unable to say hether It was the hul :
of a vessel or not.
CAUSED MUCH EXCITEMENT.
During the day there was great excitement
In South Chicago. Hnntreds climbed to the
tops a their houses 11 order ta get a view
01 what they believed to be tIme wreell of this
Chlcora. Along the shore as far al One
lluntlredtim street the crowd stood In the ( biter -
ter cold wind ant the blnlng snowstorm
whIch began lu the latter part of the afternoon -
noon \Vhen It began to grow darll n crowd
cf several hundred on the shore at Nlnety-
eIghth street built a huge beacon fire , In the
hope c atracU g the . attention . . or . ho people

All cart of rumors were circulated through
the town ( , all scores of people could be found
who raw , or said they saw , living men on
the wrEck and walking about on the lOS which
surrounded It. Some had counted time men ,
and the number varied from fleep to twenty-
five , or aloe more thnn the crew all has (
sengers of the mining steamer. 'fhere were
some who said they had SEen the men on the
wreck making signals , and had even heard
shoto fred as un appeal for help None of
tlese storIes could be verified , as they wer
totally nt varIance with tie ( test'mony 01 time
polIce and tug men and otlmer.s . who lall
watched tie floatIng object through glass's.
Calltaln Jenkins of the Vessel Owners Tow-

A report is . however , In circulation coring
