Mr MoKlnley explained tho situation while all tho gontlornon around the table understanding the signllicauco of the ques tion him their attention Tho President then asked of Aldrloh and Allison what prospect tho bill would havo hi tho Senate when it roaohod that body Thoy told him that thoy would be able to pass it in good order providing it con formed to tho policy represented by the bill reported and passed by them last session Tho Presidentexpressed himself very warmly upon tho subject of tho tariff and said that in bin opinion tho interests of tho country demands that there should be a reduction of tho revenue particularly on articles oC food and tho necessaries of life There was a good deal of fooling he ex plained particularly in tho Northwest agalnsb maintaining tho tariff that had been Imposed during the war Tho Republican party wuf pledged to reduce tho revenues and tho dutius had bettor bo cut clown oven it tho Government was compelled to in order to niako both ends tnoofc Then tho silver question was taken up and tho President asked Mr Conger chairman of the House Committee on Coinage Weights and Measures what tho prospect was Jn tho House for that kind of legisla tion Mr Conger thought it was entirely prob able that tho Windom bill would pass very much as it had boon decided upon by the committee but when tho President asked Mr Atdrlch what prospect tho bill would have iu tho Senate ho was informed that tho Committee on Finance had already re ported a substitute which differed ma terially from tho measure which Mr Wtn clom had already prepared and that thoy would insist upon its passage and agree to no other Whereupon Mr Jones of Nevada spoke qulto froely arid explained to tbo President tho character of tho Senate bill Tho most remarkable feature about it ho said was that It has been unanimously agreed to by tho Senate Committee on Finance and was tho only ilnaticial measure that had ever boon endorsed to such an extent by that committee Any measure ho said was remarkable that could secure tho approval of Mr Morrlll and himself But tho Wiu dom bill was not so popular Tho President did not engage in a contro versy bnt

today by tho failure of John F Plummor Co Thoy made a gen oral assignment for the benefit of their creditors to their cashier Jonah P Murphy Plummer also made an Individual assign ment Murphy says tho assignment is prin cipally clue to depreciation iu tho value of goods the firm has been carrying for some time The creditors by uniting can possibly make tho sus pension only temporary Murphy says tho liabilities aro about ono million dollars of which is for borrowed xnonoy and tbo balance due to manufactur ers and for trust money deposited with tho iirm by relatives and friends The assets are nominally a little larger than tho lia bilities and consist of stock outstanding accounts and valuable real estate owned by Plummer Tho trado attributes tho failure to over advances chiefly on satinet

manner March San Francisco ChronicM lead ing papers hero complain vigorously that the telegraph censors refuse to transmit their correspondence giving the real situa tion of aflalrs in tho Chancellorship crisis ab Berlin Tho actualsituation will only bo known upon the arrival of letters by mail Public discussion has already begun as to who Blsrnarks successor will be The opinion In Berlin Is that the corning man will be Dr Hinnpetor who is known to be in sympathy with the Emperors movements on social re form and to entertain political views in di rect opposition to the Chancellors Here after the Emperor will be his own Chancellor It does succeed Bismarck he will be little more than a private secretary with the Emperor in full swing of tbo ad ministration Tho Immediate occasion of the obscure but is believed to bo tho Emperors socialist policy which is having great effect on international no loss than on domestic affairs The Emperor cajoles where Bis marck favored cudgels Since tho recent elections which proved such a terrible blow to Bismarcks international policy new facts havo been brought forward daily to show however great1 his genius might be as regards foreign affairs ha has made a failure in domestic affairs in Germany THE TORY CRISIS But important as is the fall of Bismarcks dynasty it is almost lost sight of hero in tho impending crisis in British Affairs It was decided this afternoon to call a general mooting of tho Tory Leagues at tho Oarlton Olub Thursday night Even when somo important measure Is before the house such for instance as the Coercion bill and tho local government bill a mooting of this kind is of grave significance but at tho present moment when no important rneas ureis before the House of Parliament the call for a party council is very portentious According to the best authority Goschen is anxious for an appeal to the country on the budget which will be soon presented Tho Chancellor of tho Exchequer has a very strong budget to present showing a surplus beyond all expectations which will enable him to recommend radical measures in the reduction of taxation and is very anxious to go before tho country on the showing be lieving its effect will sink out of sight the opprobium visited on the Government from tho Parnell report and provo a winning card Balfour fights the motion tooth and nail If tho Tories go before the country on the budget and win Goschens supremacy in the party is assured andBalfours nosowillbe out of joint The Irish Secretary wants to wait and lot tho general election bo fought solely on tho Irish question when it comes up which wouldmakehhn and not Goschen tho biggest toad in tho puddle but this is no tlmo to go boforo tho country on tho Irish question Tho strong party leaders aro conviiiced that a crisishas arrived now with the Gov ernment so that they must go before the country on something Goschens budget offers the only opportunity likely to provo a winning card The Chancellor of tho Ex chequoL1 finds ready supporters in his views so a party caucus was called this afternoon for Thursday to consider the question The of course deny any crisis and say tho caucus was called simply to effect a stronger party no one in a position to know anything believes this as things look tonight as if a dissolution and general election soon after Easter were most probable Tho Liberals aro elated at the prospect no budget the tide is flowing so trongly in their favor that if an appeal to he country comes they are confident of a weeping viotoiy THE CrflUMANAMERICANS NEW YORK March Tribune says No oocuronce in recent years in Gorman his tory or politics has created so much oxcite raonb and general interest among the Ger mans as tho severance of official relations between tho Emperor andtho Iron Chancel lor I was startled by tho news said William Stoinway although I have feared such an outcome for somo time There aro evidently grave differences oi opinion between the young Emperor and ths greatest statesman which Germany over had The Germans hero aro filled with the gravest apprehensions although nobody questions tho good intentions of the Em peror Tho immediate results of his hob nobbing with the Socialists have not been of tho most encouraging nature We all fear that it will eventually create considerable evil and bo followed by a period of reaction ary measures It is certain that tho young Gorman Empire is not only surrounded by but filled with relentless enemies It is also certain that Bismarck who spent a lifetime in cementing the vinity of Germany un doubtedly held out till tho last moment Tho ill fooling between the Catholic South ami the Protestant North has just been overcome All its friends look with pride upon the rejuvenated country but we fear keenly also the new dangers of internal dis sension especially tho tremendous increase of tho Socialistic vote in answer to tho young Emperors Oswald Ottendorfor of that Bismarcks resignation was due to se rious difficulties between him and the Em peror upon tho socialistic question The Chancellor did not care to appear responsi ble for tbo developments which he saw com ing Tho greatest effect will beupon the for eign policy Bismarcks internal policy has not been without mistakes Naturally all treaties will remain as they were but Ger many loses the prestigewhich she had in having Bismarck at the head of foreign af fairs Tho Russians and French will rejoice over the whole trouble THE CAUSE OP THT3 QUARREL BERLIN March main causes of the trouble aro thefollowing Kaiser

eighteen months has spent his days playing checkers with his partner Stayner in the Ludlow street jail is at last at liberty having given a total bail yesterday of only of which was on tho original charge or which ho had been held in default of has in all likelihood said goodby to the jail for all time that is unless lie again runs counter to Kussell Sage and Sidney Dillon He has played his game with a shrewdness perfectly marvelous in a mere boy It is not every young man of 25years who can fail for fifteen million dollars after bucking sue cesssf ully against the heaviest operators of Wall street and still fewer are men of that who could keep the reins in their hands even when in jail and force their worst ene mies men of millions and of power to capit ulate The beauty of it all is that Ives when arrested laid his plans and by per sistently following themhas succeeded against tho greatest odds perhaps that any man over had against him He foresaw the outcome from the beginning A few days since your correspondent called on Ivesin jail and had a long talk with him as to his plans and prospects He was look ing well without the slightest trace of care on his face and was cheerful in his conver sation though at that time things were look ing hazy as to the outcome The talk turned on to Ivoss original plans and hothen said what will bo news to all who know the man that it had been his desire from early boy hood to become a great railroad manager It had never been his desire to be a stock operator merely He explained the false motives which people had regarded his deals in the Cincinnati Dayton Ohio stock by saying that it was his purpose by making use of that road to get a leverage on others and branch out He did not want to swamp that road nor would he havo done so if let alone for by it ho expected to become the railroad power which it had been his dream to become How far did you expect to reach asked the correspondent There was of course a limit to my am was the reply but first of all I ex pected to get through a line from New York to St Louis andOhicago and then feel my way slowly It was your plan then to reach the Pacific Coast it was bufc it would havo taken years to have done What road did you have your eye on Oh all my trouble has come because I was in a very fair way almost in daily ex pectation in fact of getting control of the Baltimore Ohio As soon as the great railroad kings saw how I was branching out they determined that it was necessary to kill me and not wait till I had too strong a West of the Mississippi what could1 you hope There was a road when I was cut short in my work which I could have made con nections with that would have given me a transcontinental system within five years beginning at New York andreaching to San You can see from these plans that I was no railroad continued Ives with a smile I had to get a foothold and I was getting it just as scores of other men before me It is egotisticalfor me to say that they feared me decided to cut short my career but what other explanation is there for their conduct Ivestold of various schemes which had been put up to catch him when dealing on the street and how nearly he been swamped atvarious times but how he man aged to see tho little game and He spoke of the likelihood of a releaseand the correspondent asked What willyou when once more free v v Thatis too much to tell All that I have said must revealed till the settle ment nowunder way is carried through and I am ofJail or I might not get out so soon but what I will do then I cannot In fact it will take a longtime to straighten out my own affairs and plenty of thtngsraay happen in the meantime Only of one thing you can be assured I am not dead and I must do some thiQgr Sage and Gould notwith ulated that commissioners shall be appointed from each State and Territory and the Dis trict of Columbia together with eight com missioners to be appointed at large which the Government appropriates for its own commission acting independently corporation and without power to incur any obligations It is instructed by this act to accept the buildings only when they shall be deemed by said comtnissiou to be ade quate for the purpose for which they wero intended In the original bill tho eleventh section stated that not 10 percentum of the should be actually paid in cash before the Commission should do any corporate those necessary to its organization The bill now reported is still more conservative in protecting the Governments interests so far as its connec tion is concerned and in insuring the finan cial success of the fair beyond a reasonable contingency by providing that the Commis sioners shall not only b e satisfied that an actual bonafide subscription to tho capital stock of at least has been made while not less than has been paid in but declares that the further sum of five millions making to bo pro vsded by the corporation 5n ample time or as needed for the successful prosecution of the work Tho committee has given care ful consideration to the statements of rep resentatives of the finance committee of Chicagoas to subscriptions to the stock of MVE MILMON DOLLAllS and believes the subscriptions will be paid While it is tho judgment of the committee that Chicago will meet tho obligations as promised their representatives it would call attention to the fact that the judgment of this committee is not to be taken alone but that the Commission on the spot in Chi cago will have a more favorable opportun ity to satisfy themselves that the repre sentatives of Chicago who appeared before the committee were ready to meet every requirements indicated by the bill previ ously considered or in discussion while the location of the site was pending Tho com mittee desires to recognize the fact that it is due toChicago that it be assured by the action of the House that the fair is to bo held in Chicago Avithout further delay as tho business arrangements connected with the provisions of this act can be better adjusted when they are assured of tho action of Con gress The committee claims that tho Govern raent does not assume any risk but is asked to enact such legislation as to demonstrate that it is in sympathy with tbo desires and to encourage the patriotic efforts of the citizens of Chicago in the great National and Inter national Exposition that will mark this im portant epoch of the history of the world and commemorate the life and services of Columbus in a manner worthy of tho conti nent he discovered Section 6 defines the ditties of the Com

1892 Upon the question ofthe time of holding the exposition there was a difference of opinion among the mem bers of the committee The cost of the Government buildings will be limited to and the

requirements for the successful conduct of it and to commence active prep arations more promptly than could have been possible except for their enterprise and forethought The committee calls attention to fact that the citizens of Chicago offer a larger and more generous contribution to the Na tion than ever proffered by private citizens before aiid larger than any other offered by any foreign Government or city in the great international expositions previously held In the financial plan of the Paris Expo sition which is now claimed to have been the most successful in the world it was
