Washington,' Nov. 27.—Statesmen and financiers-.of the east take rather kindly to a st^ggestlon which Former Qovernor W. j; Bailey of Kansas, now a national baqicer, makes with reference to the Qisurance of l>ank deposits. Goveritor Bailey is opposed to the government guaranteeing deposiU but is inclined to think It is coming before long unless the bankers, themselves, take stqps in that direction. ' His plan is ior the banks of each sute to form a mutual assodaUon for the insurance of deposlU up to 50 per cent, and tax ihe- banks for the fund. Most every failed; bank, he says, pays out 50 per censor more oin the dollar and a hO per c$nt insurance would be ample to protect all depositors. The associaticin would employ its own auditors l(i examine all banks which are mei^tiers. PACIFIC BEST FOR WfRELBSS.

In the Atlantic wireless telegraph service, the army transports on the :Paclfic have been extraordinarily ^nccflssful in maintaining conununfcation.

Just before the latter event, in response to a question as to whether coinage of silver as advocated by him would have prevented the money stringency from which the country has been suffertng he said: "The coinage of silver;has no bearing upon the ^monetary conditions which exist today. The. restoration of bimeuiism> would have given ns •acre money than we have at present but the unprecedented discovery of gold has given |as sifefa an increase in the volume of money that prices have risen. r 'The Etringe ^icy is not due to the scarcitiy of money but ito the scare that has spreaff among depositors, i'; • R.

THE DEFENSE RESTS BB.U)LET CASE HAT 60 TO JUBT NEXT HONDAt. M WiTIESSES 01 SOBREBOHAL DEFENSE WILL ALSO OMIT CBOBS EXAXINATION OF FHTSlCIANS. Former Stenofriplirr of Ex-Seutor Browa Tells of a Telephone CoavrrsatloB. Washington. Nov. 27.—The abruptness with which the defense rested its case yesterday in the trial of Mrs. Anna M. Bradley for the killing «t Senator Brown, combined with the fact that already four of the fifteen witnesses summoned by the government in rebuttal have testified, leads to the belief that the case will be given to the Jury possibly Monday or Tuesday of next week. The present purpose, of the defense is not to cross examine at length Drs. Jellieer and Brush, the government Insanity experts, or to place on the stand any witnesses in subrebuttal. It was (here fore expected, when the court opened today, that at the close of the day's proceedings the testimony would all be in. The first witness today was Archibald Livingston, a former stenographer to Senator Brown. He declared that on December 1st, one'week before the tragedy, Mrs. Bradley called him up on the phone and said, "So Mr. Brown got away, did he?" Livingston declared that on his telling Mrs. Bradley that he did not think Brown would marry her, Mrs. Bradley said: "Well, he'll have to or I'll blow his head oIT." The witness declared Senator Brown in the presence of Mrs. Brown. Mrs. Bradley and Colonel Tatlock said he would protect Mrs. Bradley aa long as he lived. Livingston on croBS-examlnatinn, said that before Senator Brown left Salt Lake for Washington on December let, he left with him two hundred dollars for Mrs. Bradley's expenses to California but Imposed the condition on Mrs. Bradley that she should not go to Washington. JusUce Stafford halted the trial here and directed that a girl eleven years old be requested to leave the room with her parents. Some sensational testimony was brought out by Seem Chrltcnsen of Salt Lake City who told about a scene between Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Bradley at Pocatello. Idabo. when Mrs Brown had takon the defendant by the throat and threatened to kill her. and another wherein Senator Brown had denied that he was the father of his son. Max Brown, which called forth a fierce denunciation from Mrs. Brown CY LELANO CANDIDATE. Rumor Says He Will Run for Govern or on Re.oublican Ticket. Topeka, Nov. 27.—Rumors are in circulation here that Cyrus Leland will within a few days announce him, se'f as a candidate for the Republican nomination for Governor next year. Leland has been a prominent figure in Kansas politics for forty yeasa and It Is stated that he desires to round out his career with a term as governor He has t>een talked of as a probable candidate for some time but his boom has not been regarded as serious. He is nouH^mmittal in discission of the reports that he wants the nomination. Ho says: "No one has heard me say that I would be a candidate for Governor. They haven't heard me for the reason that I have not said It. 1 don't know what I will do. I centaln ly won't go into the fight unless It would be anybody's victory. A great many of my friends have been writing to me and urging that I become a candidate. It is those friends who bave been doing the talkingl. I have rot said a word." nOILD BETAIN INDUN SCHOOL.

MUST OPEN tTATIONB. Rallroada MuM Provide Waiting Place for NIflht Paiaengars.- Toueka. Nov: 87.— The 8Ut« Board of RallroaA Conmlasloneito, at ila regular we^lyi meeftlBg y^stfitlay, issued notice to the-railroads'operatiqg in Kansaa to the effect that all-pea- senger stations at points where niight trains psss most be kept open tor the accomodation of waiting passengers whether night operators or agents be employed or not.' Iti the notice the Board states that unless the railroads make the suggested changes in their regulations within thirty days & formal complaint will be filed and en order issued. This is the- matter over which the chairman of the Board. O. W. Knavel and Commlsslener Frank J. Ryan disagreed so seriously two. weeks ago, narrowly escaping serious differences. Ryan wanted an order issued at that -timo and became in-, censed because the other commissioiii ers held that notice must first be-given the companies if the law was to be followed. He voted for the notice yesterday and the dove of peace is again hovering around the ofllce of Ihc Railroad Commissioners in the capitol.. ^ ' FROM POWERS JUBY Two Repablkans Beaoved From the Krntacky Panel for Caasr. Georgetown, Ky., Nov. 27.—In the Caleb Powers trial the commonwealth gained a jMint today by having three Jurors removed from the panel for cause, without exhausting any more of their peremptory challenges. Two of the Jurors discharged were republicans, while the politics of the other is doubtful. The defense retaliated by announcing that it would challenge the entire second Grant county venire, which reported yesterday for Jury service, on Ihe ground of Irregularity and partisan discrimination in its selection. This general challenge wilt be based on the conduct of Arthur Goebcl. brother of the man for whose death Powers is being tried, in accompanying the sheriff into Grant county and the charges of partisan action against Deputy Sheriff Chipman .

SENATORS MAY GUSH Curtis of Kansas Oppose BeaioTal of Indian Restrictions. Washington, Nov. 27.—A clash between the two new senators from Oklahoma and Senator Curtis of Kansas is threatened over the proposition to remove restrictions fr\m I'he Indians of the eastern half of the new state. Owen and Gore will fight for removal, and Curtis will oppose them. In order to get a solid footing for his fight. Owen will go to Guthrie when the legislature convenes next week and urge the passage of a state law creating curators in the various counties .under control of a state philanthropic board, to look after all business deals of fuUblood or Incom petent Indians. The law will provide that the Indian lands, when sold, must bring a "fair price." After Its passage. Senator Owen will come back to 'Wishington and support legislation that wil^ mmnlete- ly divorce the government from Indian affairs in Oklahoma. He says Oklahoma Is now able to Innk afte- its citizens..Including the Indians, and that the government should get out with its army of officials. If the Indians are robbed and become pauper ized. he says, Oklahoma^wlll care for them, althonirh he doo|i. hot expect such a condltloQ to ariaa.- . Senator Curtis says he will opnose the Owen program, that -the Indians need the protection of the federal gov erament just as much now as ever, if not more so. Curtis is on the Indian coinmitfSs of the senate. Owen expects to be on that committee also.. With two Indians on the same ctMinmittee. there is liable to be some Indian scalps lifted.

Nov. 25.—Measures relating directly to the currency which are being discussed ' among bankers and incoming members of Congress may be roughly grouped under four heads—a central bank of Issue, a central organization of the existing national banks, the Issue of additional circulation against various classes of bonds other titan United States bonds and the issue of circulation upon general assets with' the security ot a guaranty fUnd. The project of a central bank based upon the general outlines of the Bank of France or. the Imperial Bank of Germany, has apparently been attracting more attention of late than at any previous time in recent years. Senator Hansbrough of North Dakota, who is a member of the finance committee, has announced that he will introduce a bill for such an institn,- tlon. Mr: Wexler. vice president of tho Whitney Central NaUonal Bank of New Orleans, is openly In favor of central bank, and says that the New Orleans press, taught by the strain of the cotton situation, is gen- eraMy with him. How a Central Bank Would Serve. Those who. favor a central bank point to the recent crisis as the best evidence of the aid which it could have afforded had It been in opei^ ation. Their view is that the national hanks would have been able to redis count their paper at^ch an amount necessary to relieve fbe strain. It Is considerod somewhat significant in some quartera tlut.Mr. Ridgely, the comptroller of thircurrency, has Just declared for a ceatral bank of Issue after having in previous reports recommended only- a general credit currency for the existing banks. The utterances, of Mr. Ridgely are not.- however, considered to commit the administration, since Treasurer Treat has another ptan which he la advocating whenever he delivers public address on the subject. It is so long since a central bank existed or was even seriously driscuss- ed in the United States that there is much difference of opinion as to the details of the onranization. Those who advocate It insist, however, that the Secreatry of the Treasury and the comptroller of the currency should be exofflcio members of the board of directors and that the President should approve the head selected for the bank. The provision of. the German bank charter in regard to circa lation finds favor—that after a certain fixedi limit of circulatkm. addi tlnnal issues, which are not;covered dollar for dollar by gold, should be tcxcd at the rate of 5 per cent. Others, however, prefer the greater freedom of the French system, where the volume of note issues is practically un der the control of the bank, and where the accumulation of a largo reserve permits the bank serenely to ntalnlain a rate of discount much lower than that of the Bank of England or the Bank of Germany, while oth- ci countries are In the throes of fin. ancial convulsion. Fowler'a Bill to Tax Circulation. Most of the plans presented at previous sessions of Congress have dealt with the question of Increasing the elasticity of the circulation Issued by national banks by permitting issues on other security than United States Bonds. There is a radical difference of opinion, however, between two schools as the nature of these add'- tional issues. The plan proposed by Representative Fowler, chairman of tie House commission on banking, provides for issue upon the general credit of the bank, with provision for a ruaranty fund raised by taxatk>n on circulation. This guaranty fund is to be employed when necessary to redeem the notes of failed banks. It is the contention of Mr. Fowler and others who favor this plan that a tax of about 1^ per cent annually upon the c<rculatfc>n would meet all losses, but in [order to insure absolute safevr they propose that the tax rtiall be very much larger than this.
