FOR HALF A MILLION A. Big New York Firm is Unfortunately Forced to the Wall. Their Annual Business Said to Have Reached About .151,000,000. NEW YORK, March 2.—Siegfried Wcrtheim, doing business under the style of A. Wertheiin & Co.. importer of sulphite, pulp and paper stor:k. in the Times building', made nn assignment yesterday to Charles Howard Williams. His liabilities are not definitely known, but are reported to be upward of $500,000. The business was established in IS-tr by A. Wertheiin. the father of the assignor, in Cassel, Germany, with a branch nt Hamburg'. In 1885 the new branch was opened and Siegfried built up a large trade here amounting- to about SI,000,000 annually. In September, 18H1, the firm or* A. Wertheiin & Co., was dissolved and Siegfried continued the New York business a lone us sole proprietor. The other partners continued the business in Germany. A. Wertheiin, the founder of the house, died in November last in Hamburg 1 . The parent house of A. Wertheiin & Co., in Hamburg'and Cnssel is wholly unaffected by the failure of Siegfried, being in no way involved in his liabilities or by giving' him credit. DR.'TALMAGE MAY RESIGN. Discouraged by the Heavy Indebtedness of the Brooklyn Tnberiuicle. BHOOIU.YN, N. Y., March 2.—The Brooklyn Eagle says that Dr. l)e\Vitt Talmage, during an interview with a reporter of that paper yesterday, intimated plainly that the continuance of his labors at Brooklyn Tabernacle would be dependent upon the power of the trustees and congregation to extricate the church from the swamp of debt in which it is engulfed. Dr. Talmage also admitted, the reporter says, that recently he had received calls from other churches of an exceedingly tempting nature. To the direct question, "Doctor, is it not true that you contemplate resigning your pastorate?" he said: "1 prefer not to talk on the subject. I have flone nothing of a definite—tihat is to say, I have no very definite ideas in regard to the matter. These money troubles of ours oppress me. They interfere with my work. Jf outside ea res arc intruded upon me they will certainly interfere . with ' my spiritual efficiency." It was learned that the indebtedness of the tabernacle is §287,310. On the 1st of April notes fall due which must ^c met to the amount of $20,000. END OF SILVER AGITATION. How Mr. Gladstone's Speech Is Ke- glirded In London Financial Circles. NEW YOHK, March 2.—The Post's financial cablegram says: "Mr. Gladstone's speech on bimetallism is thought in some quarters to conclude all_serious silver agitation: American stocks were improved yesterday on the theory that this decisive debute strengthens Mr. Cleveland's hands by ending hopes that England will accede to a renewal of, bimetallist negotiations. Business yesterday was quiet and almost featureless." No Word from the Nnronlc. NKW YOKK, March i2.—No news has been received from the missing White Star line twin-screw steamer Naronic. The vessel is now almost ten days overdue, the '-ompany officials and friends of the crew are 'intensely anxious. The Naronu! carries a crew of seventy- five men and had on board a general cargo of -1,000 tons, valued at many hundreds of thousands of dollars. The missing vessel has two sets of engines, In anything- except an unusual up| (aval of the elements she would be a.V>le to stem the seas and in the emergency of one set of her engines breaking down the other would be perfectly capable of working the ship. The wrecking ;of [one of these sets would not injure tho other, as the engines are separated from each other by a strong steel bulkhead. It is possible but not at all probable that both engines may have broken down.

LosnoN, Maren 2.—The contest between Balfour and Lord Randolph Churchill for leadership of the Conservative party assumes a decisive aspect. Halfour's absence from the Commons, and nis lack of discipline as a conserve! 1 of the party, combined yesterday to repeat the fiasco of the bimetal debate. Although Balfour and Jackson, when in office, approved of the Christian Brothers' partaking • of the education grant. Balfour was absent when he should have been in attendance to check the exuberant bigotry of the Ulsterites. Churchill seized the occasion and recalled the old days by his courageous speech, which Irishmen welcome today as a virtual acceptance of the principle of Home Rule. Lord Randolph carried Gorst, Borthwick, Ferguson and other influential Conservatives with him to swell the. Government majority. The conscrvers were driven to admit that Balfour was outdistanced by Churchill's honesty and tact. Salisbury, Devonshire, Balfour and Chamberlain, in a conference yesterday, fixed ou a demonstration at Albert Hall on March 15, to begin a stump of the country for the. anti- home-rnle campaign, and also decided that Sir Henry Howorth should move the official Conservative amendment against the second reading of the home- rule amendment. He will express a willingness to consider any scheme of local government not involving an Irish Parliament. Commissioners Burnett and Schloss, appointed by Mundella to inquire into the immigration question in America, sailed yesterday to be absent four months.

NEW YORK, March 'j.. —A statement concerning the coining administration's financial policy was published in a Wall Street newspaper yesterday afternoon and was generally ascribed, to Henry Villard. It was asserted that, above all things, the new policy will be to make, every dollar of United States money as good as gold. Just how this is to be done was not explained, but the following plan was said to have the approval of Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Carlisle: First—Retire all paper money. Second—Coin silver to take its place: issue coin certificates as receipts for deposits of coin. Third —Establish an equivalent fund to hold and maintain the difference' in gold between the bullion value and the face value of silver coins. To do' this, purchase the gold required by an appropriation from the revenues of the Treasury from year to year, or sell United States bone-sand a Pply the proceeds to said purchase. When the plan i. 1 ; carried out the money of the United States will be gold coin and silver coin, equivalent with gold— the money oi the constitution. ESCAPED BY TH^ WINDOWS.

NKW ^ OUK, March 2. —The rumor that Dr. Talmage is about to retire from ^hc Brooklyn Tabernacle was denied emphatically by the doctor himself last night. He said that he preferred Brooklyn to any other city for a place of residence, and did not expect to leave it.

Votes Against a Free Trade Ami-mlnicnt. OTTAWA, Out.. March 1.—The great battle for tariff refoim which hcts been raging in parliament lias closed. Wilfred Laurier, Liberal leader, ''•• .ivered an effective speech last night. He declared that the policy of protection adopted by the present g-overnment was responsible for the depression of land values and the exodus of thousands of Canadians to the United States. He declared boldly for unrestricted reciprocity with the. United States and for revenue reform. Mr. Foster, Minister of Finance, replied on behalf of the government. He said reciprocity meant 'assimilation of tariffs and such a policy Canadians would never accept, because it meant ultimate political union with the United States. The government favored closer trade relations, but would never agree to a bargain 'which meant substitution of tlie American for the British flag. At 3 o'clock this morning the members were called in and divided on Sir Kichard Cartwrighu's amendment, which was defeated—yeas, 72; nays, 120. Except that Mr. Calvin, conservative, vote-.; with the Liberals, the vote was a straight party one. Sir Kichard Cartwright's amendment declared for an immediate, revision of the tariff in the direction of freer trade, and that the amount of taxes collected should be limited to the sums required to nieet the necessities of the government efficiently and economically administered.

On this plan the' March price was lowest and at the beginning of each succeeding mouth a slight raise was made, till in the fall tho average was reached and passed. "But this is too antiquated.
