Brtt Which Tailed to Secure John Bull'* Acquiescence—France Beady to Co the Limit if Other Commercial Would; but She Makes a Demand on England That Is Promptly Keject*d— Situation Xot Hopeful for "Dad's Dollar" —India's Objection to a Change". "London, Oct. 23.—The correspondence in regard to the bimetallic proposals of the United States monetary commisb/on was issued by the British foreign office last evening-. The tallowing account of the negotiations is taken from the official publication. At the conference held at the foreign office on July 12 the Marquis of Salisbury, the secretary of Btate for India (Lord George Hamilton), the chancellor of the exchequer (Sir Michael Hicks-Beach), the flrst lord o£ the treasury (A. J. Balfour), the United tales ambassador (Colonel John Hay) and the United States monetary commissioners (Senator Edward O. Wolcott, ex-Vice President Adlai B. Stevensoti and General Charles Jackson Puine) were present. On the invitation ol' the British premier Senator Wolcott explained that the object of the mission was to, ascertain in advance of an international conference the views of the governments, and the envoys had determined to ascertain the views of the French, British and German governments on the question of reaching an international bimetallic agreement. France Was Keady to Co-operate. They had been to France, where they had reached a complete and satisfactory understanding with the French government, and the envoys would have the eo-operation in this matter of the French ambassador in London. The senator then explained that the success of the mission depended upon the attitude Great Britain would take, and ha requested Great Britain to agree to open the English mints, as its contribution to th« attempt to restore international bimetallism, with France and the United States co-operating together in an attempt to that end. The Marquis of Salisbury asked if France was ready to open her mints to free coinage, and Senator Wolcott replied, "Yes." The premier thereupon inquired at what ratio France would open her mints, Wolcott said at 15Vi, adding that the American envoys had accepted this ratio. Suggestions for Kiigland's Assistance. The senator then presented the following list of contributions which, among others, he suggested that Grea Britain might make: First, the opening of the 1 India mints and the repeal of the order making the sovereign legal tender in India, Second, placing one-fifth of the bullion in the issue department of the Bank of England in silver. Third, raising the legal tender limit of silver to, say, £10, and issuing 20-shilI- ing notes based on silver which shall be legal tender, and the retirement, in graduation or otherwise, of the 10-shilling gold pieces and the substitution of caper based on silver. Fourth, an agreement to coin annually so much silver, the amount to be left open. Fifth, the opening- of the English mints to the coinage-of rupees and the coinage of British dollars which shall be full legal tender in the Straits Settlements and other silver standard colonies, and tender In the United Kingdom to the limit of silver legal tender. Sixth, colonial action and the coinage of silver in Egypt. Seventh, something having the general scope of the Huskisson plan. Adjourned to Meet Later. The meeting then closed, and It was understood by the parties that the absence of the French ambassador, Baron de Courcel, from the proceeding's should be regarded as informal and a. second conference was held on the 15th at which in addition to those- already mentioned, the French ambassador and M. Geoffrey, the councillor of the Frenc! embassy, were present. REST ox TS Intimation That Uncle Sam and Johnny Cntpand Have "Put Up a Job." The reply points out that the proposed agreement would be a much more serious question for India than for the United States and France, as the whole risk of disaster from failure would fall upon India. "The effect of Ki e adoption of the scheme would probably be an increase in prices in France and the United States, but a decrease in India," a change which France and the United States "would contemplate with equanimity, but which would be manifestly impossible to India." Then follows the opinion that India Is on the point of securing a stable exchange of 16 pence per rupee, and it would be exceedingly foolish to throw away the position already attained by an acceptance of proposals which, if they failed of their intended object, would place India permanently under the silver silver standard with all its admitted disadvantagea "Nothing but assured success could justify India in loining in the experiment; and our be- lef is that the proposals will fail to secure a permanent ratio of 15% to 1. * "We doubt whether any two or three nations in the., world, unless one of them were Great Britain, could es- :ablish the required stability. It is cer- ain that France, the United States and India could not." The India government proceeds: "We do not hesitate to recommend that your ordship refuse to give the undertaking desired. * " * We believe that our seat policy i:s to link ourselves to Great Britain. The ratio of 15% to 1 is too ilgh. Differing so widely from the existing ratio, it would immensely in- rease the difficulty. Indeed, if it could >e secured and maintained successfully we should object to the ratio in the interests of India, and recommend your lordship on behalf jf India to decline to participate in or to do anything to encourage the formation of a union baaed thereon. » * « We presume that a union based upon a ratio low enough to ?uit our interests would not be acceptable to France and the United States."

Memphis, Oct. 23.—President Thornton, of the board of health, officially declares that a case of yellow fever exists in Memphis. The case is that of B. H. McFerrin. He is a yard conductor and was taken sick Sunday. New Orleans, Oct. 23.—The fever situation here is as fickle as a weather vane. For two or three days the new cases and deaths will run to alarming figures. On following days both cases and deaths will drop and the impression be given that high-water mark has been reached and that the disease is on the wane. Then there will be another jump.. The situation Thursday was extremely encouraging. Last night at 7 o'clock the cases had nearly reached fifty and •re had been no fewer 1 than five deaths. The day's record here was finally 50 new cases and 5 deaths. Record from other points: At Mobile, 10 new cases, 2 deaths: Montgomery, Ala.. 30 new cases, no deaths; Clinton, Miss.. 11 cases In all; Edwards, Miss., 4 new cases. Having Taken It; Into His Head That He Would Be Carried to a Court Slartial— And Now the Officer Who Wouldn't Have Him Carried, but Draped Him Along; the Ground, Is Trying to Explain That He Did the Bight Thing. Chicago, Oct. 23.—The court of inquiry called to investigate the alleged brutal treatment of Private Hammond at Fort Sheridan, met yesterday. Hammond Is the man who surrendered himself when absent without leave, In order to avoid a charge of desertion, and then concluded that, aii in his opinion be was not being legally treated, he would not walk to the room in which a court martial was sitting, but would be carried. He was not carried, but dragged by the heels at the end of a rope. Hammond was the flrst witness and under oath he testified that he had "refused to go to work and was ordered from the guard room into a cell. Saturday at 9:30 I was told I would have to appear before a summary court. • I told the officer of the guard if he wanted me h» must carry/' me there. Dragged Out of the Guard House. "Captain Lovering came with, two members of the guard. The order was given to the sentries to step in and drag me out, so my back would strike on the doorsill. The sentries took hold of me and threw me to the floor and I was dragged out. Sergeant Barnard tried to hold me down onto the sill so my back would be scraped. I was Reytl Mke* the food para.

Report That Judge Lynch "May" Hang a, Brute Iu a Buckeye Town. Xenia. O., Oct. 23.—Miss Kate Swabb, a young- lady of this city, was last night the victim of a brutal assault by William Carter, colored, and now lies at her home in a critical condition. Carter accosted thegjrl whileonherway home from the fuse factory, and after beating and choking her cruelly, dragged her to a lonely place, where he succeeded in accomplishing his purpose. Mrs. George Thornhlll heard her cries, and goirg to her rescue beat the negro with a club until he fled. The girl was covered with blood and presented a horrible sight. Angry crowds of citi2;ens -.sthered on the streets and if the negro s apprehended there may be serious trouble. as I went through the door Captain Lovering put his heel over my head and threatened to stab me in the face. Then I was allowed to walk back to my cell. Later Captain Lovering returned to my cell with four sentries, and gave the order, 'Go in and jerk that man out.' The door was unlocked and two sentries stepped in and threw me. Captain Lovering,, kicked me in the side while I waa?.-"'down four times with his foot, and as I went over the sill slapped me over the right side to the left, and prodded me twice more with his foot, and gave me three more violent kicks about the shoulders. Says the Captain Cursed Him, "During this scene he cursed me constantly, using the vilest kind of oaths as he sneered, 'Now, will you get up? Will you walk now?' Lovering then ordered a rope and gave orders to have my feet crossed and tied at the ankles. I placed my hands behind my head, v.-hen Lovering and the sentries began t3 drag me. He prodded me in the right hand with his sword and then in the sholuder. I was dragged to the guard room and out to the porch, where with one hard jerk they started me down the stone steps on my back across the road. The sentries were reinforced by two others. I was then dragged over pavements a.nd roads to company D's steps-, up the steps, then down again, across the pavement, and under the tower to company A's steps, and finally up into the adjutant's office. WHY HE TOOK FREXCH Ha* Fallen Ofl'. but the Volume of MusinesK In Still Large. New York, Oct. 2S. —Bradstreet's says: While the general trade movement is somewhat irregrjlar, and there are further evidences of falling off In demand, the volume of business continues of large proportions. Speculation In wool has ceased and demand for the staple J» less than for weeks past. Cotton goods are dull, and jobbers report dry goods Blower than a week ago. Interior merchants in the central west have not distributed fall stocks as promptly as expected, and many jobbers at western centers find that they over-estimated the consumptive demand when securing fall goods. Unseasonably warm weather has interfered with the movement of heavy goods at the west, but rains in Kansas, Oklahoma and Nebraska have improved the agricultural outlook. The Industrial situation continues to furnish employment to as many persons as at any preceding period this year, and at higher \vag%s. Production of iron, steel, machinery, stoves, structural work, glass and woolen goods continues heavy. Steel mills have orders to carry them into 1S9S, and decline contracts for next year's delivery. This explains the advance ID the price of Bessemer pig iron, while the foundry grades remain unchanged. The extraordinarily heavy and steadily increasing production of iron is starting up furnaces long out of blast. There are 205 business failures reported throughout the United States this week, against 196 last week, 292 in the week a. year ago, 259 two years ago, 221 in the like week of 1894 and 329 In the third week of October, 1S93.

The French ambassador was invited to declare the position of the French government, and he said France was ready to open her mints to the coinage of silver if the commercial nation adopted the same course, and he advocated at great length, the ratio of 15% But, he explained, France would no consider the re-opening of the mints of India alcne as being sufficient guarantee to permit the French government to reopen the French mints to free coinage of silver. Sir .Michael Hicks-Beach then announced definitely that Great Britain would not agree to open the English mints to the unlimited coinage of silver, and that whatever views he and his colleagues might separately hold regardinL bimetallism he could say that they were united on this point. Baron de Courcel said, as a personal suggestion, that among other contributions he thought Great Britain should open the Indian mints and also agree to purchase ar.r.ually £10,000,000 sterling of silver for a series of years. Senator Wolcott accepted the proposal that the British government should make this purchase with proper safeguards and provisions as to the place and manner of its use. Since this conference the British gov- rnment has been considering the pro- •osals and finally made the reply handed the United States ambassador Wednesday. .

Decision on Grain Speculation. Dea Jloines, la., Oct. 23.—The supreme court in the case of Counselman & Co. vs. Manuel Reinhart, brought Up from Cass district court, declares that contracts for grain where the intention s merely speculation on the chances of rise or fa'.! of the market, and no delivery is intended, are gambling contracts and void. It is not enough to render the contract void that the buyer in tends it as a gambling contract; unlesa the seller participates in that intention. State Has an Appeal L«ft. Omaha, Oct. 23.—Judge Powell, before whom the suit against Bartley's bondsmen has been on trial for three weeks, yesterday ruled that the bond -was invalid on a technicality acd thus leaves the state nothing but an appeal to the supreme court. Baltimore and All-Americ» lie. St. Joseph, Mo., Oct. 23.—The Baltimore and All-America teams played icre yesterday before a great, crowd. The game was hotly contested and darkness prevented its completion, the game being called in the tenth Inning— 1 to 9. business in Chicago, and as the inspector general was at the barracks I knew the request for release would be refused. I had no intention of deserting and reported at Fort Sheridan so at not to be so ranked. I expected to be confined, but thought I would be returned to my post, and after sentence restored to duty." Captain Lovering then took the stand. Throughout the time he was being examined he remained cool and answered the interrogations with indifference. He admitted that by his orders Hammond had been dragged from the guardhouse, and he admitted that he had struck th« soldier and had pricked him with his sword. None of this treatment,, the captain said, had injured Hammond in the least, as the subsequent report of the surgeon who examined him would prove. The methods he used were, in his opinion, necessary for the discipline of the army. The capiain Insisted that In case he had allowed Hammond to defy him and remain in the guardhouse without punishment .of the sort he had inflicted a lasting and irreparable injury would have been done the service. He said the blows and the use of his; sword had not in the least savored of brutality. Th« captain was excused and Lieutenant Bernard, who was lieutenant of the guard at the lime of the affair, was called. The lieutenant's testimony was merely corroborative. Had a Kicht to Kill Him.

Indianapolis, Oct. 23.—A joint service of Disciples and Friends wag eagerly entered into fay both denominations yesterday. The Friends spoke and prayed as the'spirit moved them. At times there were as many as half a. dozen persons on their feet at the same time, awaiting recognition .from the chair. The Disciples were equally aa anxious to say a word of greeting and Christian unity. The service was fervent and for thirty minutes the two conventions sat together, and then parted, tie Disciples to adjourn their meeting sine die. The important question which has been subject of debate In the Society of Friends of Am«rca for many years—the question of conferring legislative authority on the conference—has beenprac- tically settled in favor of the Innovation. The plan adopted Is the one submitted by the special committee, the only material change being that each yearly meeting is to have two delegates instead of one.
