Carlisle's Currency Bill to be
IT DIFFERS VERY MATERIALLY
Revenue Cotters Grant and Ruth Or
derert to Northern WatersAdmiral
Washington, Dec. 21. The Carlisle
currency . bill now before the' house of
representatives will be withdrawn and a
substitute presented. This decision was
reached after a caucus of democratic
members of the banking and currency
committee quietly held last night, fol
lowed by a conference between Secretary
Carlisle and Chairman Springer today.
The substitute has already been drawn,
and will be offered by Springer today or
tomorrow, certainly before the holiday
recess, as the desire of all concerned is
. to get it before the country prior to ad
journment. It differs very materially
from the original Carlisle bill.
Two very important features appear
for the first time in the substitute. The
original Carliole bill contemplated that
all national banks must reorganize under
the new plan. This would have re
quired them to surrender the govern
ment bonds which now constitute the
basis of their circulation . The substitute
does away with this imperative change.
If the national banks wish to continue
to hold their United States bonds and
issue circulation thereon, they may -do
. so. It is felt they will soon discover the
advantages of the new system, and
therefore adopt it voluntarily. The
other important features of the substi
tute is that it does away with the un
known liability of the banks to guar
antee the notes of all other banks. The
original bill contemplated that if a na
tional11 bank failed, its notes would be
paid Cut of its assets and a general safety
fund made up by all banks. But if the
assets and safety fund were insufficient
. to pay the notes of the failed bank,
then the comptroller of currency has to
make a pro rata assessment and shoulder
them with the unknown risks. In
effect it made them supply insurance on
all notes of the banks in which they had
no concern. In view of these criticisms,
the substitute will be the limit of lia
bility of all banks for the failure of in
dividual banks. They will, however, be
compelled to keep up this safety fund by
more rigid provisions than proposed in
the original bill.
The Nicaragua Canal.
London, Dec. 21. Chairman Bartlett,
of the stockholders' reorganization com
mittee of the Kicaraguan canal, in an
interview today, and the whole of the
Nicaragnan shares at bis disposal had
been taken in England. He could have
sold many times the amount of the
shares he possessed had they been avail
' able.- He will sail for New York next
week, to organize the new construction
company and complete arrangements to

the United States and Europe. Active
work upon the canal will be begun soon.
Among the members of the reorganiza
tion committee are some of the ablest
leading English politicians and scien
tists. Bartlett says the building of the
canal with or without the assistance of
the United States has become a cer
tainty. ' -
The Wonderful Gold Veins Struck.
Denver, Dec. 20. The recent great
gold strikes in the Leadville district are
csusing wild excitement. "Railroads are
taxed to their full capacity. The Den
ver, Leadville and Gunnison railway,
the short line from Denver to the camp,
is preparing to run extra trains to ac
commodate the travel. .Gold strikes
have been numerous in Leadville for the
past two years, but none have attracted
so much attention as the two latest, in
the Rex and Triumph mines, which es
tablish the fact that the gold belt ex -extends
at least three miles, the two dis
coveries being that far apart. The pros
is that Leadville in 1895 will be the
largest producer of gold in the world.
There was a large attendance of rep
resentative men at the convention of the
Colorad oSilver League today. After a
hot discussion the following resolution
was adopted with only two dissenting
"That the words 'non-partisan' be
stricken from the constitution and by
laws wherever they appear, and that the
members of the Colorado Silver League
refuse to affiliate or work with any po
litical party which does not nationally
declare, unequivocally, in favor of the
free and unlimited coinage of silver at
rate of 16 to 1.
