that only time Is needed to bring about all
that Russia desires In Manchuria, and as

LONDON, Aug. 14. The Times today

Not only has the governor received a
Jewish deputation most graciously, but he
has actually returned a visit to each of the

Jews are concerned.
There Is now reason to hope that genuine
measures will be taken against some of the
authors of the recent massacres. A notary
named Plasarjewskt, who was much com
promised, has committed suicide, and an
other man, named Kavarlne, who was
liberated, although accused of murder, has
been rearrested. Further symptoms of

FINANCE BILL IS CERTAIN
Little Sews Conoerninir, Lata Conference is
Received at Washington.
NO RADICAL LEGISLATION IS POSSIBLE
Measure Framed by Allison and
Spooner Likely to Be Received
with More Fnvor Than Aldrlch
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Aug. 11 (Special Tele
gram.) Information received In Washing
ton concerning the conference between the
senate Subcommittee and the president on
th new financial bill Is rather vague, but
the understanding Is that some sort of a
measure Is to be put through at the com
ing session of congress. The president
does not profess to know anything special
about financial matters, but realises in
a general way that the Immense outstand
ing amounts of sliver and greenbacks,
based upon a limited supply of gold. Is
not a safe and sufficient method of finance
for a great government, lie is anxious to
have any remedy applied which may pre
vent anything of a disastrous financial
nature occurring in the future. At the
same time, sine his talk with Representa
tive Cannon, who Is to be speaker, and
with other western men, he does not de
sire legislation of a radical nature, which
will be to the benefit of Wall alreet alone.
and which will not meet the exigencies of
the legitimate business of the whole coun
Just what sort of a bill has been framed
is atlll indefinite. The more that Is known
of the Aldrtch bill of the last session, the
less favorable impression It has made,
The Fowler bill seems to be entirely out
of the question, and the legislation which
must bo enacted at the coming session of
congress will have to be of a moderate
and conservative kind, in order to com
mand enough strength to pass. If Son
ators Allison and Spooner are allowed to
do . the legislation, rather than Aldrlch
and Piatt, all of whom are members of
th subcommittee, more confidence will
be extended In congresa A bill known to
have been drafted by Spooner and Allison
will receive favorable consideration, where
one drafted by Aldrlch will be looked
upon with suspicion. The desire of the
president, as understood here, is that ail
possibility of any financial disaster that
legislation can prevent ought to be re
moved, but that nothing which would
causa overspeculatlon and artificial pros
perity should be adopted.

Roosevelt's conference with a subcommit
tee of the senate finance committee waa
not concluded until the small hour
thin morning. The whole subject of finan
cial legislation at the approaching session
of congress was discussed thoroughly.
The commute, consisting of Senators Al
drlch, chairman; Platte, Connecticut; Alli
son and Spooner did not present even n
tentative draft of a currency bill to the
president, although some propositions
which, subsequently, may be embodied la
the measure were reduced to concrete form.
No definite conclusions as to the shape et
the proposed legislation were reached. The
conference related rather to methods of
procedure In the work at hand than to the
form of the legislation.
At 7:30 o'clock this morning the members
of the committee left Sagamore HUI.
boarded their yacht, "Vergena, and sslle l
for Providence on their return to Senator
Aldrlch's home. On fact of distinct Im
portance was developed at th conference.
While un extraordinary session of congress
next fall Is assured, It has not been deter
mined definitely whether It will be called
to meet In Ootober or In November.
It has been supposed that the extraordi
nary session would convene on Monday,
November 9, 'but the indications row are
that it will be called for an earlier date.
perhaps several weeks earlier,
To Consider Cuius Treaty.
The primary purpose of the extraordinary
session will be to enact legislation muklng

It waa pointed out, too, that if Congress
were convened at an early date, th entire
work of the extraordinary and regular ses
sion could be cleared up by the time the
national conventions are held next year,
which would be a great convenience not
only to the president, but also to members
of both the senate and the house.
Consult Others un Finance Bill.
It can be said that the senate flnanra
committee will draft no measure formally
and conclusively until consultations have
been held with other members of the sen
ateDemocrats as well aa Republicans
with members of the house and with the
best authorities on flnanoe In the country.
It is the desire of the committee to be in
constant touoh with the president, with
other senators, with member of th house,
with bankers of the west, as wall a thoso
of the cast, and with country bankers as
well as city bankers, so that soma plan of
legislation may be formed by the opening
of the extraordinary session of congress.

a genuinely elastic currency system, a sys
tem that will expand when th necessity
shall demand, and contract when th neces
sity shall have ceased to exist.
