Washington, O:t. 28.—Secretary of the Treasury Gage read to the president and the cabinet the recommendations as to financial legislation which he will make to congress in his annual report. He proposes to strike at the root of all the difficulties that have embarrassed the treasury during the last few years by recommending- that the country be put unequivocally upon the gold basis, and that the treasury be taken out of the banking business. Such radical lalation as he proposes may be im- posMble to secure, but if his advice, is not followed he will throw upon congress the responsibility for refusing to correct the defects of the present cnr> rency system. . . .. Keynote of the Seeri-tary;* Flan. The keynote of the secretary's scheme 3 the refunding of the present bonded debt: of the country in gold bonds bear- 2% per cent, interest. He- believes ( that bonds which declare on their face that they are payable, ^principal and interest, in gold, can eas'Hy be sold at that rate. As most of the present bonded debt of the.country bears interest at 4 and 5 per cent., the annual saving in interest by refunding would be about J17,- 000,000. This would more than pay the interest on the J26p.000.000 additional 2% per cent, gold bonds which would have to be issued to carry out the second feature of the secretary's plan, which Is the retirement of all the outstanding greenbacks and Sherman notes, so as to leave no notes whatever outstanding which could be used to drain the treasury of gold. How H« Would Supply Currency. With the retirement of the Sherman notes the government would be left with silver bullion in the treasury vaults purchased under the Sherman law at a cost of $104,000,000. This could either be sold at the market price of silver or it could gradually be coined into silver dollars to the amount of $125,000,000. To take the place of the currency Secretary Gage will propose that the banks be allowed to issue notes up to the par value of the government bonds deposited by them and he believes that practically all of the additional bonds •th^t wouid.be issued to retire the government notes would be absorbed by the banks as basis for circulation. He will also propose something on the line, of the so-called Baltimore plan, whereby banks will be allowed to Issue additional circulation, probably up to 25 per cent, of their capital stock, ample provision being made for its security. Circulation in Free Silver States. He will ulso' recommend that the tax on, national: bank circulation be reduced to just enough to cover the expense o: administering the law and supervising the banks. In order to give increased circulation to the southern states and other localities in- which the silver movement gained strength chiefly on the ground that more currency was needed for transacting the business of the country, the secretary will recommend" that national banka be permitted to organize with $25,000 capital. It is believed, that such a provision, coupled with proper safeguards to protect circulation, would give to these communities a safe and somewhat elastic currency which could be put out by the local banks as it would be needed for moving the crops or meeting any other demand for money. Win Tie me institution ot proceearngs j against the Central Pacific road. The government has contended that this road is already in default, and therefore subject to foreclosure; but in any event it is said that the raod must default on the 1st of next January. On the flrst of the present month the Central Pacific debt to the government aggregated tSl,82-i-,<63, of which amount S35.239.342 is unpaid interest and the remainder principal. la aid of this read the government now has outstanding- $19,811.120 in bonds, of which tlO.614,120 fall due on Jan. 1 next, and : 19,197,000 on Jan. 1, 1S99. NOTHING WARLIKE IN THE NOTE. tToodford'a Cable Received Giving the Snb- gtance of Spal»'» Reply. Washington, Oct. 2S.—The event of yesterday at the state department was the receipt of the long-expected cablegram from United States Minister Woodford at Madrid transmitting the reply oiT the Spanish government to his representations in the interest of Peace in Cuba. This message began to come in installments at 2 o'clock Tuesday r.ight and it was nearly noon yesterday before it was all in hand at the state department. It was not the length of the message that occupied the wires all of that time, but the fact that it was all in groups of figures, and that it was probably being filed in small batches aa It -was turned into the complicated state department cipher in Madrid. All of this work had to be undone at the state department, and the message translated from the cipher back again into good English. This occupied nearly all of the day, so that it was half-past 3 o'clock before the first fair copy of the message was turned out. From unofficial information that has reached, certain administration officials in advance of this message of Woodford as to the nature of the Spanish reply it Is evident that In neither language nor subject matter is the communication likely to be taken as offensive by our .government. It may be, it is true, regarded as insufficient to meet the issue presented by Woodford in hia note, but officials of the state department say that in view of what has already been accomplished by the new Spanish cabinet in reforming abuses in Cuba, in remov- hg Weyler, and in projecting- what appears to be a liberal pleasure of autonomy, our government will certainly rest—at least until congress assembles— and afford the new Spanish government a reasonable time to carry out its plans.

Will Take Place Sext Monday imd That of the Kansas Pacific Dec. 15. "Washington, Oct. 28.—Attorney General McKenna fully confirmed the .statements heretofore made in these dis- patchea as to the recent offer of the reorganization committee and its acceptance by the government, by which the full amount of the government's claim against the main line of the Union. Pacific road, principal and interest, is guaranteed. This amount is something in excess of $58,000,000 and includes outstanding government bonds issued in aid •of the road to the amount of $19,076,512. Of this sum $15,919,512 becomes due on Jan. 1, 189S, and $3,157,000 on Jan. 1, 1899. Whether or not the reorganization's original bid of JaO.000,000 holds goods to a proportionate snare as to the Kansas Pacific road is an open question. The roasior in chancery fixed this amount at approximately $5,000.000, and the contention undoubtedly will be that the guarantee offer as to this amount holds good. This question, however, is regarded aa of little or no consequence, as it is con- fidertly expected that at the Kansas Pacific sale—which no doubt will take place on Dec. 15—the reorganization committee wiil bid up to the full amount of the government's claim ar.d the first mortgage bonds. Its interests, it is said, would compel it to do this. If by any chance, however, the committee's bid should fall short of the full amount of the government's claim it is almost certain that the government itself, acting under the authority conferred by the act of 1SS7, will be prepared to bid in the property. Xo such contingency, .it is stated, is likely to arise, and the statement is made from high official sources that the net result of the de£l with the reorganization committee will undoubtedly be the realization of the full amount of th* government's claim against both the Union Pacific and Kansas Pacific road* Tht neit move of the government toward a final settlement of the whole band.-aid.ed railroad question,,it i| Gives $130,000 to Charities and $1,200,000 for a Freo Training SchooL Chicagro, Oct. SS.—The will of the late Geo. M. Pulkman was filed In the probate court yesterday afternoon.

Pullman, brothers, and Helen Pullman West and Emma Pullman Pluhrer, sisters, are to reeefve-$50,000 each. To another brother, Charles L. Pullman, $25,000 is bequeathed. Provision is made for grandchildren, nephews, nieces and some of Mr. Pullman's faithful employes and servants, To the Chicago Historical society, the Chicago Orphan asylum, the Home for the Friendless, the -Humane society, the Newsboys and Bootblacks' home and other institutions, $10,000 each is bequeathed, the sum aggregating $130,000. The sum of fl,200,000 is set aside for the establishment of a free manuel ti?alning schbl In Pullman. The total value of the estate is shown by the petition for letters testamentary to be $7,600,000. Of this amount $6,800,000 is in personal property and $800,000 in realty. f ATTACIJ ON CORPORATIONS. by lUlnoi* Steel Company Declared the Jones Island Attorney. Milwaukee, Oct. 2S. — The validity of the organization of the Illinois Steel company was fiercely attacked in the United States court yesterday. It wan asserted that not only is the company not a citizen of the state of Illinois but that it is the illegal outgrowth of two other corporations, which are also alleged to have been illegally incorporated. Attorney Rublee A. Cole raised the question tn the trial of the first of tie iviction suits filed by the ateel company against Jones island residents. The steel company was formed in 1889 by the consolidation of the North Chicago Rolling- Mill company and the Union Steel company. It is contended by :ole that the organization of these two corporations was in violation of the revised statutes of Illinois and it was further asserted that the consolidation ol he two companies was illegal. Another State-National Club. Des Moines. la., Oct. 28.— Judge Spurrier, of the United States district court, who had cited the state board of elections to appear and show why they are not in contempt of his court, was last night served with a notice of a stay of proceedings issued by the state supreme court pending- the determination of the question involved by the higher court. He said he would consider the matter, but intimated that he may hold that the supreme court cannot supersede the district court in summary proceedings. _ _ Methodist BUhop» in Council.

MOTIVE REVENGE, NOT ROBBERY. If It IK Tru« That Ml»croant» Oanted UX Xew York Central Horror. Cold Springs, N. T., Oct. M.—Prenldent Depew's opinion that the dliaatcr of last Sunday morning on the N«w York Central railway was the result of 4 dynamite explosion planned by enemies of the corporation finds many upholders among railway officials and citizen* familiar with the conditions. "If the embankment of the railroad was torn up by dynamite -the motive of those who did it was not robbery but revenge," was the statement made by one official of the road yesterday. "When the party of twenty-six roadmasters of the New York Central system arrived at the scene early Monday morning- and corr- menced a critical survey of the section of the embankment which had b«en •ither washed or blown out, one of Oie roadmasters, a man who had great experience in the use of dynamite, (said that the excavation looked to him very Biuch like the rrork of dynamite. "The tendency of dynamite Is to blast downward rather than upward or outward, and one of the most, expert track builders of the railroad says that a very light charge of dynamite would have collapsed a section of track fully as extensive as tiie-aecttoti in question. The locomotive was found In the river at least thirty feet south of the depression in the track, which makes it seem reasonably certain that the engine leaped the space before it started in its plunge into the bottom of the river." General Manager Toucey said: "I believe something broke on the engine and ploughed up the ground and jarred the road bed so that it loosened and slid into the river." TRUE STORY OF THE SHOOTING. Game Warden Kill* Three Irullann and It -Hini*elf Killed. St. Paul, Oct. 28.—A special from the Leech Lake reservation in northern Minnesota says informantlon by »epclal messenger has reached the reservation that a tight occurred between two Indians and a grame warden in which all three were killed, also an Indian woman.
