MACOX, Ga., May 1.—Secretary Hoke Smith, of the interior department, was interviewed here Tuesday by a representative of the Telegraph on the financial question, and defined the differences of opinion on the currency question existing in the country at present. The interview, summarized, is as follows: He thought that during-tho next twelve months 11 thorough discussion of tlio monoy question will bo presented all over the country, confined, • ho thought, to tho proposition for the unlimited colniico of- silver at a ratio" of 10 'to I. The real question, tho secretary .'tliouRht, was •whether or not tho free and unlimited coinage of Silver at a ratio of ;i) to 1 would uavance the prioo of silver bullion so that it would oour the relative value of gold or 10 to 1, which Is tho proposed ratio. If It would not. then tho country would not have a bimetallic currency. Reviewing the history of ilio country's currency, 'the'sooretary said that both. Jefferson and.Hamiltonirecognl/.od. tho fact that the ratio of coinage' must bo llxod upon the commercial value of the metals In tho market. The value of an article must bo controlled by the demand for Its use and the supply to bo consume:!. Tho facts show that the demand has practically co&sod while tho supply has almost trebled, and can anyone, asked tho secretary, ••study these facts without concluding that If Uiis enormous Issue by the United States was Insufficient to steady tho fall of silver during the- past twenty years, unlimited coinage by tho United States uloco would not be sufficient to restore Its bullion valuo now? "It Is, therefore, not offensive criticism, but only a statement of logical conclusion when I insist that unlimited coinage of silver at tho ratio of 10 to 1 moans silver monometallism. Under such a law all tho silver product of the world . would turn to our mints and then would come tho silver heretofore manufactured Into a cheap ware. Again, silver mining would increase and the exhaustion of resources would bo threatened by tho ex chan'ffO. of silver dollars for the bullion. . "With free coinage we would virtually change our standard to one worth only one- half tho present standard, and the commercial value of a dollar tbo world over would be only flfty cents. While commodities might sell for twice as many, dollars, their real valuo would remain unchanged. The entire country would be confused until by accurate, test the true valuo of the now standard was ascertained. Tho resul: would be a cessation of trade, and the cautious business roan would Involve 'himself in no'con tracts.. 'This uncertainty would create serious bus'iness troubles and tho practical suspension of all enterprises." He could see no benefit from tho change and none especially to those who worked forwages because they were always the last to be recognized in increased wages under the use of depreciated currency. Reasoning on these lines, ho could see no benefit even if the change were brought about. The secretary thought tho agitation of the •question was checking the return of prosperity.,,-but he hoped tho confldence that the Vl question 1 would be defeated would prevent serious injury. In conclusion Secretary Smith said: "I h:ive no doubt that the next president of the United States will be opposed .to the unlimited coinage of silver at 10 to 1 " Supreme Court Will Decide. SEW YORK, May 1.—The question as to when the tariff till of last August went into effect came up before the United States court of appeals and was certified.by it to the United States supreme court for final adjudication.

Morton has granted Dr. Buchanan anothai week's respite. - May 1.—It is learned on good authority that Great Britain has agreed to the proposed settlement of her dispute with Nicaragua if the payment of the indemnity is guaranteed. It is believed that the affair is practically settled. How tho Itlattcr Stunds. The final proposition, as now concluded between Nicaragua and Greut Britain, will, therefore, be its follows: Great Britain agrees to immediately evacuate Corinto and withdraw her licet. Nicaragua agrees to pay tho £15,500 in London fifteen clays from the sailing of the fleet out of Corinto harbor. According to these terms the fifteen days does not begin to run until the actual sailing of the fleet- The latter feature was insisted upon 03' Nicaragua as a means of checking popular agitation and as a step toward maintaining her dignity. Good KiUlh of Grunt Britain. From the Britisll standpoint the acceptance of the compromise and immediate evacuation of Corinto establishes the good faith of Great Britain in her declaration that there was no purpose of occupying territory. From the first the British authorities have assured Ambassador Bayard, and the latter has so advised Secretary Grcsh- ain, that there was "no purpose of aggression or securing a foothold in Nicaragua. The only purpose, Earl Kimberly has said., was to collect a debt by such force as was necessary and then to depart Nicaragua, notwithstanding these assurances, lias maintained that the collection of the 877,500 was merely a covert means of occupying her territory. This view has prevailed very widely here, even in some official quarters, although the policy of the government has been to accept the good faith of Great Britain's representations.
