Henry Clewa oa Klnnnce. Bv NEW YORK, Dec. Clews has addressed an open letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, in which he makes one or two novel suggestions about silver legislation. Clews says Congress should amend the present silver law by inserting a clause giving the Secretary of Treasury authority to hatigo at his discretion the periods of the purchase of silver. At present the aw provides for ounces each nonth, which is absolute. In place of this, to provide for the present money crisis, substitute at the Secre- tary's discretion, authority to purchase double that amount in December, equal to ounces, and the same for January, February and March and then suspend the purchase entirely for tho months of April, May, June and July. What is important for the people and country to know for a certainty, is that they can rely upon tho present law being permanent and not subject to the changes or con- venience of every Congress. When the present law has been in existence a year it will bring out new silver money, aggregating in un amount of about and each year there- after an equal sum. In ten years rom the date of the passage of the act the amount of this money will be about Mr. Clews thinks this annual in- crease will be ample for that class of money, and it would be unwise to in- crease it. It certainly will be suffi- cient it Congress will also pass at an early date the Sherman bill, which provides for National Bank bills to be issued up to the par value of the United States bonds. This will in- crease that class of money about Fatal Powder Bxploalons. By Associated Press.] YOUNGSTOWN Dec.
