Annual Gas Rates Washington, Nov. 22.—Colon el "William L. Trenholm, who was comptroller of the currency under President Cleveland's first administration, nas just submitted his views of currency reform to the monetary commission. They embrace a number of features entirely different from those of other experts, and have been carefully studied by the commission during several recent session! Trenholm reccomra.end:sthe fusion of the greenbacks and Sherman notes into one form of paper redeemable in gold. He thinks that these notes should be issued in denominations of $1, $2 and $5, in order that the people may have confidence in the money in current circulation. He believes that a redemption fund of $100,000,000 would be sufficient to maintain the parity of the entire volume of about $430,01)0,000. Suggestions Regarding Banking. The suggestions of Colonel Trenholm regarding banking include the following: To make adequate provision for the recognition of existing clearing houses and< the establishment of others by allowing them to be organized In reserve and central reserve cities under the national banking law, with denned powers and re- sponsibllties. To empowerclearing-houses thus organized to license banks in their respective cities to accept circulating drafts drawn by banks situated at places where there are no clearing houses. Such drafts to be free of all taxation, federal, state or municipal, and to be payable to bearer. To limit the maximum amount to which any such bank may have acceptances outstanding at any one time to a certain proportion of its^capital and surplus. Provision for Adequate Security. The clearing houses arc- also to prescribe that no bank be licensed to accept such drafts without taking from the drawers adequate stcurity therefor to the full amount of such contemplated acceptances, which security may be in the form of discounted paper; also without having deposited with the clearing house security to the amount of the circulating drafts applied for, the sufficiency of such security, both in amount and character, to be certified in each instance separately to the comptroller of the currency by the proper authorities cf the clearing house, and approved by the local bank examiner. Securities so deposited are to be released only upon presentation to the clearing house of cancelled draft?, which drafts are to be delivered by the clearing house to the comptroller of the currency for destruction. These drafts are to perform all the duties of currency while they art out and be cancelled when they reads the accepting banks. Wlmt He Would Do About Silver. Regarding the disposition of silver dollars and silver certificates Colonel Trenholm suggests that the silver now n the treasury be constituted into a reserve, fund for the guarantee of outstanding silver dollars, and that the silver certificates in excess of the actual aullion value of the coins and certificates outstanding be cancelled from time to time as they come into the treasury. He recommends that silver certificates be ssued in denominations of $10 and over, ,nd that some of them be issued in denominations of $1,00, $5,000 and 110,000, in order that the may be ield by national banks in the propor- ion of 20 per cent, of their lawful money •eserves. Colonel Trenholm suggests an international agreement among silver producing countires for steadying he price of silver. He does not contemplate the restoration of silver to parity •with gold, but the regulation of the price. CANADIAN-AJIERICAX RELATIONS. tensive American market lying alongside her, and there is understood to be every desire to aid Canada in the enjoyment of reciprocal trade with this country. The subjects other than the tariff, such as border immigration, fiah- ing in the great IaJf?s, etc., are not of an imperial charactt.,- and concern only the United States and Canada. In these, it is said, Great Britain has no interest whatever except to se« them »sttled on terms satisfactory to Canada. The lake fisheries have been a prolific source of trouble. It is claimed that the fish of the lakes—particularly white fish—are baing exterminated by the lax laws of some of the states bordering on the lakes. The destruction of the fish is said to be analagous to the destruction of the seals in Behring sea, and one of the subjects which Canada would urge before the commission would be the protection o/$ the fisheries of the lakes. Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British ambassador, has been confined to his room for the last two weeks with a return of his old ailment of rheumatism. It prevented his attendance at the Behring sea meetings, and in this and all other affairs of the embassy Mr. Adam, first secretary, has been in charge. In the meantime such questions as reciprocity with the British West Indies, the general arbitration treaty, etc., have been In abeyance, but they are likely to come up for discussion with, the authorities here as soon as Sir Julian is fully recovered. RTIFICIAL and Natural Gas Bills are now due and payable at the company's office. Natural Gas Consumers desiring to avail themselves of the Animal Rate, commencing November 1st ,can do so by calling at the office and arranging for same- All bills must be paid on or before the 10th of each month. TWO BIG FOOT BALL GAMES. Penngylrania JDefeafef Harvard an<i Tal* Jl«st« Princeton. Philadelphia, Nov. 22.—Before t.h« largest crowd that ever witnessed A foot ball game in this city the University of Pennsylvania foot ball eleven Saturday afternoon defeated the Harvard team by a score of 15 to 6. It was riot a sensational game. By tbis victory over the Crimson Pennsylvania has gained the top round of the foot ball ladder and holds undisputed possession. New Haven, Nov. 22.—In the Tale- Princeton foot ball game here Saturday, from first to last Princeton was outplayed. The Yale line was stronger, the backs held their own, and Yale shouters were surely as enthusiastic as those of Princeton. The game ended with the score 6 to 0 in favor of Yale. Chicago, Nov. 22.—The Carlisle Indians Saturday night defeated the University of IlKnois foot ball eleven by a score of 23 to 6. The game was played in the Coliseum, and probably 15,000 people were present. Society was out in force and the gaily dressed women and their escorts were almost unanimous in "rooting" for the redskins.

As They Arc Affected by the Influence of the Motner Conn try. Washington, Nov. 22.—There is good •eason to believe that the British government will view with favor the forma- ion of a commission to clear up vexatious questions between the United States and Canada. This attitude will be important in the consummation of the commission plan, for the oest efforts of the United States and Canada toward a general settlement could corn- to naught unless the imperial government approved the efforts and stood ready to give them official execution in the form of a treaty. At first the sharp differences aroused by the recent Behring sea meeting led to the belief that Grea* Britain might stand in the way of a commission which would discuss, among other questions, such imperial subjects as the tariff. It was thought that the colonial office at London would not view with favor any movement by a commission which would disturb the preferential tariff given the mother country. It appears, however, that the British authorities are sincerely anxious to close up the various irritating questions which have long existed between Canada and the United States, through the medium of a commission or otherwise, and that no idea is entertained That when the commission deals with the imperial subject of the tariff it will involve any disturbance of the British-Canadian tariff relations. There are said to be many articles—such as coal and fish—which are not exchanged between Great Britain and Ca.nada. On such articles, therefore, any reciprocal arrangement between the United States and Canada •would have no influence on British trade with Canada. The home government is said to be fuUy conscious of the advantages which Canada may secure, in. tb* . *n. Discovered at Milwaukee as He Took a Trotu for Chicago. Milwaukee,-Nov. 22.—George A. Bergman, of Chicago, the missing bridge- groom of Miss Margaret Perry, was found Saturday night Just as he was about to board the 7:15 train for Chicago. He had been in the city since Friday, but was successful in eluding the police until Saturday evening. Detective Peck, who had been on his trail since Friday night, was notified about 6 o'clock that a man answering to Bergman's description had pawned a diamond and immediately thereafter left in the direction of the Northwestern station. The detective, accompanied by the father of the young man, hurried to the station and arrived just in time to see the much-sought-for bridegroom get aboard the train, Toung Bergman 1 positively refused to be interviewed regarding his disappearance. All he would say was that he wanted to go home. And he went, leaving this city in company with his father. DIDN'T BELIEVE IN BANKS. Hid Her Money in a Barrel and Kow She Is $8,OOO Oat. Chicago, Nov. 22.—Mrs. Margaret Keegan, living at 512 West 'Fifteenth street, had a strong belief that banks were instituted for the sole purpose of swindling people out of their money, and desiring to retain all her funds in a saie place, selected a. barrel, and placed the barrel in a closet in her home. The amount in the barrel was $8,000 in notes and silver. Friday, during the absence nf all the members of theKeegun household, thieves entered the house and stole every cent of the money. There is no clew to the robbers. Havana, via Key West, Fla., Nov. 22.— La Lucha, in a recently published editorial, expresses doubt as to the sincerity of the friendship for Spain professed by the American government and says: "If the American government cannot prevent the sailing from the ports of that country of expeditions in aid of the Insurgents, and does not respond in other ways to Spain's efforts to come to favorable terms, it Is useless for Spain to maintain friendly relations with America. Reports from Matanzas say that the Conservatives having become enraged at the change in the government's policy are disturbing public order. Ex- Mayor Crespo initiated the disorderly conduct by publicly giving offense to Senor Armes, he new civil governor of the province'; The chief of police followed Senor Crespo'a lead by endeavoring- to prevent, aid being given to the suffering reconcentrados by newspaper correspondents and others. Of the reconcen- trados inMatanzas, numbering more than 50.000, seventy-nine died in two days, thirty-seven perishing from hunger. Saturday seventeen deaths were reported, a large proportion of which were .the result of starvation. Horrible Epinodes Occur Daily. In Jaruco about 65 per cent, of the deaths are caused by starvation.-and the same is true of many other towss owing- to the lack of proper clothing and of blankets the situation of the reconcen- trados is becoming worse as the winter season approaches, despite the efforts made to relieve them. Horrible episodes are of daily occurrence among- the re- concentrados. After lying for three days upon the sidewalk in front of a house in a poor negro woman, who was suffering terribly and unable to move, was carried away by a flood caused by a heavy downfall of rain. A short time afterward her dead body was discovered a few blocks away, and at last reports was still lying; in the gutter. Inhiiniariity_ol'a Cub Driver. A cab driver who was carrying a sick man to a hospital observed that his passenger was dying, dragged him from his cab, leaving him on the curbstone, where he finally died. Cases similar to are of frequent occurence. R from Candelaria say that a man who was suffering from smallpox was driven by the authorities into the insurgent camp at Cejadal Negro, Pinar del Rio province, where threats \vere made to hang the man if he was not taken away. On Wednesday evening- the remaining canenelds on the plantation Portugalete, owned by Dr. Manuel Calvo, were destroyed by fire. Jllunco IMspusts the Autonomist*. Marshal Blanco has appointed thirty- four new employes at the custom house. Of these five are native Cubans and the remainder Reformist Spaniards. The autonomists are greatly disgusted by the.«e appointments. Sixty persons employed abcut the docks and 500 others in various parts of the island have joined the revolutionists, and a number of prisoners at Guines who were pardoned under the recent proclamation have returned to the insurgents. Smallpox is ravaging the neighborhood of the nsurgent headquartres in Pinar de! Rio. and there are in the hospitals in thehills 1.700 persons suffering from the disease. TROUBLE BKEWTXG ES" URUGUAY.

Chicago, Nov. 22. — Mrs. William Thompson, of Kewanee, Ills., is positive that she saw and talked with Mrs. Louise Luetgert, the missing wife of the sausagemaker. on May 24, three weeks after the disappearance of the woman from her home in Diversey street.

Attempt of Ketrofrretwiste to Overthrow Cuesta* by Force, 'Montevideo, Nov. 22.—The public is recovering from the effects of the panic that followed the announcement laat Friday of the arrest of Dr. Ferrera y Ob<=s by President Cuestas, and the latter's assumption that Dr. Herrera was aiming at his overthrow by force. There has been no outbreak and the city is tranciuil. London, Nov. 22. — A dispatch from Montevideo to The Tin:»s says: "On Friday evening last the government frustrated a plot of the adherents of &s- President Herrera y Obes in the legislature to kidnap and depose Senor Cuestas, who succeeded to the presidency ad interim after the assassination of S»nor Borda. The discovery of this plot has produced strong popular demonstrations in favor of Senor Cuestas, whose candidature tor the presidency Is now formally proclaimed by tne Blancoa and by all parties except the adherents of the old regime. "The latter (who, owing to the corrupt electioneering methods they have used, constitute a large majority in the legislature,) refuse to accept Senor Cuestas and threaten to elect a retrogressive president. The dissolution of the chamber, which is generally regarded as the only step that will save the country from disaster and another revolution, would be warmly approved by public opinion, and the army, would probably support Senor Cuestas against both chambers, which would then be powerless. Senor Cuestas declares his determination to stand by the people, to give an honest and economical government and to protect foreign interests; and he asserts that foi-eign residents as well as natives should be consulted on public affairs and in the selection of «. president." ^ t>uth of Bishop XluhoUoa't Wife.

Nov. 22.—Private Hammond, the military prisoner at Fort Sheridam whom Captain Levering is charged wltk ill-treating, created intense excitement at the post Saturday night by an attempt to break away from his guard. In company with another prisoner Hammond had been detailed to push a small cart to the door of the private's mess room. Just as they reached the door Hammond made a break for liberty, and ran for a small ravine at hand, where he would have had an excellent chance for eluding his pursuers if he had gained it without being caught. Private Edwards, who. was the guard in charge of Hammond, dashed after him, and from the first grained so rapidly on the fleeing prisoner that he made up his mind to catch him without firing. although several times during the pursuit he had a. good opportunity of shooting Hammond. After a hard run he overtook Hammond, and marched him back to the guard house. The affair created great excitement, and the entire guard turned out to escort the prisoner home again.
