Fort Wayne Weekly Breeze (Newspaper) - February 21, 1895, Fort Wayne, Indiana
Business picking up. Comptroller Eckels gets encouraging reports. Bankers throughout the country assert that Confidence is returning and prospects Vire brightening Cleveland averse to an extra session. Washin Eckels is an Optimist. Jon correspondence comptroller Eck ols who is in touch w i t h the Bankers shout the country re an improvement in business. This improvement. He says began some time ago and is going steadily on. His information warrants him in expressing the belief 1p that it will continue fill la i s j40 to go steadily on. In. Til the Normal condition has been once More reached. He is i not discouraged by the present financial situation. He does not believe that the country is going to the a dem Nixion Bow wows or that it is anywhere near that place. Though of a naturally optimistic nature or. Eckels is conservative to refrain from expressing any opinion under which he has not a Eood solid ground for foundation. He is in daily communication with the National Bankers and it seems As if every owe of them Felt called upon to give his opinion As to the condition of affairs in his particular Section of the country Allaf which is very agreeable to the comptroller. His correspondents Are the Ablest men of the country. They have carved their own Way in the world and have achieved i prominent Niche. They do not give their opinions for the purpose of Ambli Rinion or to achieve any ulterior end. They merely write hem As bits of gossip thinking they will interest the comptroller. These National Bankers receiving their information from business men of their respective communities who come to them for Loans probably probe More clearly into the very heart of the a rouble and condition of the general Public than any other class of men. It is their knowledge Given with the honest purpose of supplying the comptroller with accurate information of National affairs which forms the basis of comptroller Eckelsa opinion. The chief trouble which the present condition of affairs is causing the country is the spread of fear in Europe that our National credit is in a shaky condition. The report has gone abroad that we Are not to maintain Gold payments and american securities held in such enormous quantities by foreign investors will be paid for in Silver or some depreciated currency. This naturally creates apprehension and distrust. The president s message has had a wonderfully l reviving effect on Europe according to private information received at the Treasury department. And Many men and corporations of great wealth seeking investment and who a month or so ago were doing their Best to realize on their american securities Are now perfectly willing to hold them. There Are plenty left however who fear that this Congress is not to be trusted and that some legislation dangerous to the stability of our National credit will be inaugurated Ere the final adjournment. This feeling possesses in a slight measure a few american Bankers. They art1, however. Of the timid class and though their feelings May be extended to their customers the damage will not be so very Goa t. A a resident Cleveland appreciates this feeling both Here and abroad at a recent Cabinet meeting he expressed himself As being strongly opposed to an extra session so strongly in fact As to warrant him in informing his associates that there would be none unless some unforeseen emergency should arise. The president does not believe that the Prospect of Semi ring party advantages alone would warrant him inflicting an extra session of Congress upon the people. The situation must take on a much Darker Hue. It is his belief based on communications from people in All parts of the country that what the country wants is a rest from Congress. Lie further believes that the recovery of business will be More rapid if members of Congress Are at Home instead of at the National capital in session. He shares Secretary Carlisles belief that the revenues will soon be Surwic gently Large to meet the government expenditures and when that is proved to the general satisfaction Confidence will strengthen and the need for further issues of Bonds . Such is the situation to Day. Employees of both houses of Congress Are spending a Good Deal of time on their Knees praying that an extra session will not be called. No particular love of country actuates them in their desire. It is purely personal with them though they May possibly think that their own personal Benefit will indirectly add to the Benefit of the country. The fact is that an extra session Means the cessation of their present jobs. If there is no extra session their terms of employment will continue until Congress meets in regular session next december. That Means the loss or gain of just about nine months salary to them. Should the fifty fourth Congress Convene in session immediately after the close of this Congress new officers would doubtless be elected by the Senate which it is expected will reorganize inasmuch As the democrats Are no longer in the majority and the employees now enjoying soft positions at remunerative prices will have to seek other employment. And the seeking of other employment to a Man who has enjoyed a few years in the service of the United states Senate is about As disagreeable a Job As Ever confronted a politician. The Day after the last election Logan a Carlisle chief clerk of the Treasury received applications from nine tenths of the employees of both Senate and House. They had hoped for democratic Success at the polls and had gone to bed the night before wondering if their Hopes were to be realized. They were up before Daybreak and read the answer in the stars. These told them they must seek other places Ere the incoming of the Congress elected the Day before and Ere the Sun had risen their applications were prepared for positions in one of the government departments. Some of these applicants will be provided for of course but comparatively few because the departments Are already choked. If the prayers of these supplicants Are answered there will be no extra session. But even when the next Congress convenes in december they will be just As reluctant to go and moreover they will be All the less Able to secure employment. The report that the president is once More suffering from ill health has gone abroad again. This report will doubtless be repeated with More or less frequency after the adjournment of Congress and news at the National capital is scarce. But whatever the condition of the president will be after the adjournment of Congress it can and should be said positively now that it has never been better during the present administration. The president is naturally a Man of action. He likes work. He thrives on worry. His step is Light and his gout has disappeared. His Cheeks Are Ruddy his Eye Clear and his hand clasp firm. He seems Well eats Well works Well. He sees everybody who Calls on him on Public business and his information shows that he keeps in touch with pretty much All that is going on. The president May not live fifty years longer but a great Many who Are now predicting Liis death will leave him on Earth a firm vigorous Man of affairs when they Are climbing the Golden stairs. A Strong Effort is being made by the friends of general Casey chief Engineer of the army to have him placed in charge of the construction of the new Chicago Post office building. It is to be hoped that their efforts will fail. To one doubts Thuc engineering ability old general Casey. But the Long time it has taken him to build the congressional Library is a Monument to his Lack of Energy and should be a warning to All who Hope for the erection of the Chicago building in Chicago time. Scheme to defraud. Mother and j a Giters conspire to heat a Railroad. Mrs. Freeman and her two daughters Fannie aged 19, and Jennie aged 22, were arrested in Chicago the specific charge made against them being that of attempting to defraud the Chicago Rock Island and Pacific railway company out of $2,000. The three women tried to work a new Dodge on the company but it is one which it is said has been successfully used by the same practitioners before. Miss Fannie by much practice in stoicism passed herself off As a paralytic claiming that she had been injured in an Accident on the Railroad and had become paralysed in consequence. She feigned the part so Well that the company came near paying the claim presented. Them Mem of a f a i a Quot a a a w is. / h t a a Kest of the Freeman. Smallness of the amount asked for however created some suspicion and detectives were put to work on the Case. The Freeman lived in a hat at cos West twelfth Street but the Flat above them was unoccupied. Detectives rented the upper Flat made Small holes in the floor and through these watched the proceedings that took place in the sick room below. Whenever the family was alone the paralysed Young woman would leave her bed and walk around the room just As Well As her Mother or sister could. When the doctor called the Mother before admitting him to the chamber of the a paralytic a would immerse miss fannies limbs in cold water and As soon As they were half Frozen she was put to bed and the doctor called in. He found her limbs icy cold As they should be if really paralysed. On his final visit however he the a a paralytic takes exercise. Amused himself for a few moments jabbing pins into them but miss Fannie had been schooled to stand this sort of thing since childhood and never winged. When the doctor raised one of her lags a look of consternation overspread the Young woman a face. What should she do no doctor had Ever raised her if before. It was not in the program. The leg remained raised and the doctor smiled while the Mother swore. A few hours later the place was pulled and miss Fannie sprang out of bed. The women objected seriously to being taken into custody and loudly protested their innocence but they were quieted Down a trifle when the Peep Hole in the ceiling was pointed out to them. They were taken to the police station where they broke Down and made a Complete confession. A Wood for kindling purposes How it is prepared by steam and machinery for use.
