WAsHiNoro, D-c. 13. The house
banking and currency committee con
tinued its bearing today. Letters were
read from W. M. Dana, editor of the
Commercial and financial Chronicle, and
It. B. Ferris, vice-president of the bank
of New York. Ferris (aid:
"There seems to l no good reason
why the existing National banks who
have United States bonds on deposit
with the controller s lion Id not be allowed
to continue as they are nntil their char
ter expire or the deposited bonds are
paid off. Secretary Carlisle's bill seems
like forcing the bank to do what they
have not been consulted about."
Ferris advocated the establishment of
central redemption agencies which
would, he thought, enhance the elasticity
of circulation based on the deposit of
bonds. Referring to section 10 of the
Carlisle bill, providing for the issue of
note by state banks without the provis
ion of it sinking fund, Ferris said : "It
make the bill simply an inflation meas-
! lire modified by a deposit of 50 per cent
j in legal tender notes and a provi?ion to
cancel United Stales notes to the extent
of 70 per cent of the rtw circulation
iisue when the treasury ha the means
to do it." The letter concluded :
"As a bill to substitute National bank
notes for a new isne it will be a failure,
as it presents no inducements to the
Solid banks to become insurers of
! the circulation of mushroom institutions
and to stimulate to organized banks not
I subject to United States inspection ie
William C. Cornwall, president of the
New York Banking Association, read a
carefully prepared paper advocating sub
stantially the Baltimore plan. Replying
to ouestions by Warner, Cornwall said
he thought the greenback and treasury
note outstanding should be redeemed,
but he v;ould perform this redemption
w ith a low rate of bond. He also said
he did not consider that part of Secretary
Carlisle's plan relating to the retirement
of treasury notes sufficiently definite.
Cornwall said that a return to state bank
note would bring about a return to
countrfciting now reduced to a minimum.
Newfoundland's Financial CrUI.
London. Dec. 13. An official of the
Colonial office stated today that the late
government of Newfoundland had asked
the home government for assistance to
weather thu financial storm. Nothing
had been done in the matter, he said.
Such an appeal from a self -governing
colony, In said, was unprecedented.
The government would be unable to
take action in the matter without the
authority ol parliament. One of the
manager of the Union bank of London
said today that the Union bank of New
foundland had always stood well with
them. He expressed amazement that
the bank should have allowed itself to
be short of specie.

New Yokk. Dec. 1 1. Advices from
Peru, via Colonna, per steamer Alliance,
are to the effect that General Pierola,
who is in arm against the Peruvian
government, I gaining accession. The
general sentiment of the people appear
to be In his favor. He ha control of
several principal ports, and Is very
strong in the interior of the conntry.
He has a wel!-ctipjed army, and is
close to Lima, the capital. The Pacific
Steam Navigation Company steamer
Puno , on her arrival, Nov. 10, sub
jected to a riid examination by the
government troopt to discover if "he wa
carrying arms or ammunition. A com
pany of soldiers remained on the boat
until it arrivei) at Calluo, the rt of
Lima, to prevent communication with
the adherents of General Pierola, and
to inspect all cargo landed. The same
company's steamer Serena had a lively
experience at Cerro Azul, the first port
of call sou'h of Callao. The vessel had
on hoard a detachment of government
troop in charge of prisoners. As it
entered po. t it set the usual signals for
lighters, it not being known Pierola'
force bad captured the town. A lighter
apparently loaded witbsuirwr went along
side the Serena. Those on the steamer
were greatly snrprieed when the lighter
wa found filled -vith armed revolution
ists, who after a short ftrugle, captured
the government troops and released the
prisoners. During the struggle the
captain of the Serena attempted to take
his ve-el ont of the harbor, but a rifle
presented at hi head caused him to
change hi mind. When these advice
were disoatched, Pieruta's for-es had
control of the Oroya railroad, and traffic
to Ancuo was suspended. The only
railway in the conntry remaining in op
eration was a short line between Lima
and Callao. November 22 the govern
ment fitted out an armored train with
gattling gun battery, to carry 2,000 sol
diers along the Oroya railroad, to drive
off lha revolutionists along the line. As
the train approached the camp of the
revolutionists, 1,500 government troop
deserted with their arms and ammunit
ion and joined the rebels. The re
mainder of the government forces re
turned to Lima. The condition of the
government troops is deplorable, owing
to the high prices and scarcity of provis
ions. The people able to do so have
provided themselves with sufficient food
in anticipation of a 30 day' siege. In
Callao the marines on one of the govern'
mentbn'ks mutined. To prevent the
insubordination spreading, all hand
were placed under arrest on bulk an
chored between two government ships
and all the shipping in the harbor was
notified to withdraw from the line of
fire. The mail steamers of the Chilian
A Pacific Steam Navigation Company
are subjected to search and inspection
by each party, and are doiog practically
