AJTSTAPOLIS. Md., April silence which State Treasurer Stevenson Arch- er has maintained ever since the dam- aging cnarges against him have been made public has at last beon broken He himself has spoken, and bis friends can find little comfort in what he tells them.

Over a hundred priests from this and adiacent provinces also present. The funeral ceremonies were of the usual imposing nature and at the con- clusion the casket was conveyed to St. Francis Seminary.

WASHINGTON, April Walker, of Massachusetts, has introduced in the House a bill to establish an National banking code. The bill provides for the deposit of coin and coin cer- tificates for circulation to the amount of ten per cent, of their capital by banks of capitals of or less. In addi- tion to the ten per cent, that the banks are required to take from the Govern- ment, they have a right, by tho bill, to issue currency notes for the amount ot their coin and certificate reserve. Banks are relieved of all taxation and ex- penses, except the expense of redeem- ing their notes. On the insolvency or expiration ol the charter of a bank the notes are to be redeemed by the '.treas- urer of the United States in coin. The banks are given authority to issue notes not to exceed eighty per cent, of their total circulation. Secretary Proctor sent to the Senate yesterday, as bearing on the proposition to test high explosives, an extract from the programme of tests adopted by the Board of Ordnance and Fortification. The board holds that experiments with high explosives should be restricted to promise ultimate success. This, the report says, is not the case with Americanite, "because the liquid form and the liability to become dangerous through evaporation or by lying in store would forbid its use in the military service, unless trials should demonstrate that no other variety free from these objections can be so used." The report says there has been unquestioned proof that Americanite is liable to deteriora- tion, Mr. Turner, of New York, yesterday introduced in the House a jSint resolu- tion requesting the President to com- municate through the Secretary of State with the foreign powers interested in rans-Atlantic travel, with a view to se- ;uring their co-operation in the estab- ishment of an eflicieat system of ocean >atrol, which snail include the employ- ment of such a bci vke of vessels, or such suitable vessels as may be avail- able for this purpose, The resolution is accompanied by a long prologue setting lorth the necessity for _the better pro- GUEXYII.LE, Miss., April The water haa not made much additional en- croachment since Monday night, but the heavy rain has added greatly to the dis- comfort of the situation. The water now higher at some places outside the levee than in the river and is pouring back into the stream. It ie also going back through the Offutt crevasse into the river. This lessens the danger here, but the Easton crevasse is still pouring1 water out over the country. There has been no loss of lire-stock. The mayor has appointed a committee to aid any- one who may be in distress. The Cotton Exchange has adopted resolutions con- tradicting the sensational and unfounded reports as to the seriousness of the situ- ation here. Should the flood subside within thirty days a good crop can he made and the effects of the overflow will not be felt a year from now. The river is Stationary. HELENA, Ark.. April to the break of the levee at Austin, Miss., Helena has received some relief, the river falling one inch during the last twenty-four hours. A heavy rainfall prevails here and a rise is expected. The stock that has been saved from the flood'are having a fearful time with- standing the attacks of the buffalo gnat, that swarm in myriads. There is con- siderable indignation over tbe report circulated by Sergeant Dunn, of New York, to the effect that the levees about Helena had been completely swept away by the flood. It is untrue; the levees around Helena are in splendid condition. FJEMININJE VOTERS. MS OF THE ME. In Neighboring and Cities. Towns OUR LAW-MAKERS. Work of Ocean.

Hoi? the Women of Kannaa Succeeded la Their Scramble for Office. TOPEKA, Kan., April Elections were held in Kansas yesterday in sixty cities of the first, second and third class for councilmen and members of school boards. In nearly all the cities no po- litical lines were drawn and the battles were fought on purely local issues, Tho only interest attaching to the elections was the exercise of the suffrage by women, who are permitted under the laws of Kansas to vote for city officers and "members of school boards. At Manhattan, where the women cap- tured all the city offices two years ago, they-had another ticket in the field Tuesday and it was elected over the three other tickets. In Luis City, out of a total registration of about 600 women, only about 425 voted. At Atchison the result was disastrous to the women, who started out to cap- ture four members of the school board. One woman candidate is Lydia she had no opposi- -tioni5-- At Emporia over 000 women voted. Only one woman was a G. R. Jackson. She was elected, al- though opposed by many of her sex, who supported an anti-Prohibitionist. City of Paris Resumes Her Voyage. LONDON, April 2.
