COUNTRY'S HONOR AT:' 6TAKE
He Believes in International Bi-
inetalisin--Otuev News From
All Parts of the World.
Netw Tork. Mlay 2. Comptroller of
the Currency Ebkles spoke tonight at
the banquet of the Chamlber of Com
merce. Ms mlWeot Deling tne currency.
Hn eald: '
"I beUve we have come to- a point
In thl aisoussion of our monetary
system and the agitation for complete
change in our standard of Value, when'
this mass of opinion should not only
be aroused but should make USeil an
active force In putting an end to the
currency vagaries of which the free
sliver movement as today presenlted Is
the culmination. There can be no po
litical ln'tere to be served, no party
conelderaitlons to be advanced of surn
clent Import to warrant any man in
long deblatlntt as to the position he
tfrtouM take when the flmanolail honor
of his country is ait atake and the pros
perity of a girealt country Is' threat
ened. Their demand today, Irjterpre-
tated today in the light of Sacts, is
that 'the Ualted States shall at once
abandon Its ipresent 8tanv&rd of value
and subatttut" therefor, irrespective,
and wiltnout the oo-operaWon of any
other country, the single silver stand
ard. Nowhere is it suggested by the.
sponsors for this latest tenet in the
silver creed that thds naltlon Khlall even
undertake to maintain at home the
double standard. No where Is there
the promise given of any attempt
through Irttertratlonial agreement to
make every dnlfrir of silver whloh shall
be coined the equal in value 01 every
dollar of sliver which comes to the
mint and fairly Initerdhangeable there
with. They no (onger give recogni
tion to the flaot attested by every mon
etary union formed, and conference
held, that no nation can isolate itself
from those with whileh it has commer
cial dealings and maintain, independ
ent of them a distinctive standard of
value. The position which they now
assume of necessity eliminates from
their ranks all who heretofore have
struggled to bring about a larger us
of silver In the country's currency at
an increased ratio, and drives into the
camp of the opposition every honest
uhampion of International bimetallism.
The coniterttion which is now made by
the single silver Standard adherents
reduced to its toet analysis, Is silver
flaitism, pure and simple. It differs
In degree only, and not In prlncipln.
from the contention of twenty years
ago of the advocates of unlimited
issue of la-rideemable greenbacks and
from that Issue of ftait currency of the
period of the oom'Blnenltal congress
and era of colonlsm. The end always
sought by oommerce, the great arbiter
of every monetary system Bince the
dawn of civilization, has been to have
in every metallic money such intrinsic
value as makes the unstamped coin of
the same value as a commodity of
merchandise Ss the stamped. It has
with equal rigor insisted that of bank
currency there shall be Immediate re
demption upon presentation in sound
mebaililic currency. The commercial
world bias with unvarying precision
drawn the rule of distinction which
exists between the true vaiue in a na
tions ourrency and the value ainxed
to It, and standing upon that line of
dentarkatlon It has been as Indifferent
to the laws of great nations as of
ROBBERY NOT INTENDED.
So Say the Alton Officials In Speaking
of the Carlinville Affair.
Chicago, May 2. Officials of the Al
ton road deny enrphtatlaaHy today that
there was any attempt to hold up the
train at CarllnvHle last night when the
engineer, Frank Holmes, was killed
The shooting they say, was done by
tramp OfUoials of the road think
they have the murderer of Holmes In
the man caughlt leaving the tender.
However, the mall clerk, J. P. Kee
vers, tells a story conclusively show
ing that roWbary was intended and
when the engineer balked the plan he
was killed. Two tramps suspected of
complicity in the murder were arrested
at Springfield today, and two other
suspects were arrested at Oanllnvllle.
THE O. A. R. OBJECTS.
Boston, Mlay 2. Department Com
mander Joseph A. Thayer, of the O. A.
R. of Massachusetts, today sent out
he following letter to all Grand Army
posts of the state:
"What seems to me to be a most ex
traordtnary proceeding in this great
nation of ours Is advertised to take
plaw at Chicago on memorial day of
this year, wherein a monument to
the memory of the confederate dead
Is to be dedfaaited. It was an outrage
to every true Union man that a monu
ment was ever erected; but now In
suK Is added to Injury by the selection
of our Grand Army Sabbath on which
to consecrate the share sat to com
memorate the deeds of men who d'.d
all ln their power to destroy the gov
ernment we fought to save; and this
north of Mason and Dixon's line.
"Comrades, the blood of our mar
tyred Lincoln, our noble Grant, and
all the men Who strugirled In freedom's
cause, cries out In protestation against
this blasphemy. It Is not In my pro
vince to 4sue any general orders of
command to our posts to take action
concerning this proposed performance,
but I sincerely hope that comrades of
this department will In no uncertain
manner place themselves on record as
resenting such exercises.
"And If we oomplain because those
wiho fought on that side stlH glorify
their deeds, what shaD we say of an
sWrrlritraition which loans (gifts of
this sort cannot be made) cannon with
which to decorate and embellish the
ground- on which this shaft stands."

A number of gentlemen who have

clusion that the time has come for
Irish-Americans to Inaugurate a new

Irish Independence. The agitation
known as the Pamell Parliamentary
movement, as far as Irish nationality
Is concarned, Is dead. The home rule
question has been ruled out of prac

people. The new movement abides by
the decision, so far as the further
prosecution of ithe parliamentary agi

Yesterday aflternoan at la ttttle before
2 o'clock hundreds of people were
waiting to get a sight of the T. J,
Potter fresh from the bartd.-i of the
painters and decorators up the river
and warranted (by telegraph) to carry
her goMnn broom unspoiled of any vic
tor for a long time to come. The docks
were lined with orow.ls of Interested
spectators when a series of shrill
whistles from both the Oatzert and
the O. R. and N. Oo.'s flagship told
the city tbat there was the prob
ability of a renukne racing finish be
tween ithe boats. Both iwere spurting
dciivn from the buoy station at a ding
dong pace, when the Oatzert drew off
for an order from one of the canneries,
leaving her rival to sweep majestical
ly round to her dock "with a quicK
win;? fhalt denoted jilenty or Dottiea
up force In her engines. Two hundred
and fifty ladies and gentlemen, tne in-
vlted sues ts of the company, were on
the wtharf ready to board her for a
Highest of all ia Leavening Power Latest U. S. Gov't Report
run down towards the mouth of the
river, and a few minutos sufficed to
make everything ready for their pres
ence. Then Captain Sullivan, who evi
dently appreciated the situation to
the Utmost, pulled the whislle cord,
and rumor sayB that he hired a nlpger
for the expreHe purpose of keeping a
tension on it from that time till the
emjuralon ended. Anyway the Potter
dldn t fall to let the unlucky thousands
Who bad to say at home know that
she was out for the day, and she
shrlewed with delight at the slightest
provocation. As she swept down along
the chainnel, parallel with the wharves,
her decks crowded with guertts and her
bDlght paddles sendllng her through
the water at railroad pace, she made
as pretty a picture of life end motion
as has been seen on the lower river
for many a year. The old Potter was
always graceful and -shapely, and the
new lotter, thaniks to the efforts of
brush artists who evtdnntly know their
business, is considerably mote so. The
lower -river canneries tooted out their
kind regards, and the nigger In the
wheelhouse held onto the cord like
grim death In recognition of the salute.
In less time -than It takes to tell It.
the ctty gradually faded from sls'ht
and ithe boat was headed for Sand Is
land, where hundreds of Ashing boats
lay rooking on the swell with all their
nets out, and of course right In the
path of the excursionists, Captain
SulUvan, however, didn't want bis ves
sel's maiden trip marred by back talk
and swear words 1n various languages,,
from She bardy fishermen, and he gave
his passengers an exhibition of steering
that showed In a moment bow splen.
dldly the boat answered every turn of
her rudder. For nearly a mile her
course was a series of slg-tag turns
with several times ah entire stoppage
of her wheels, and she ran the gau
let Wtlihout so much es tearing a sin
gle mesh of any net that came in her
way. Short stops at Flavel and Tan-
sy Point were followed by a swift run
to the west end of Sana Island, then a
swlflt turn down to the Jetty again to
give the land lubbers another whift of
old ocean, and finally with a long cir
cular sweep She headed again for the
city. Captain SuHlvan "let her out"
and low banks changed to trees,, trees
to hills, hills to wharves, wharves to .
streets, streets to houses, until a final
burst brought her racing home to her
dock with a streak of churning yellow
foam In her wake that agitated the
small craflt for half a mile around,
and miade tlhem shake wrt'h Pear as
their big sister flew by. The maiden
trip of the new Potter was over.
To say that the excursionists were
delighted would be putting It very
mildly. The beauty of the vessel both
inside and out won the admiration of
everybody, and Mr. C. F. Overhaul,
commercial agent of the O. R. and N..
in whose dharge the excursion was
made, was overwhelmed with thanks
from everybody. A large delegation
from the Chamber of Commerce, most
of the members of the city council.
Senators Patterson end Bancroft, and
their families, Fish Commissioner Mc
Gulre, and a large number tf Astoria's
business men: were among (he party.
And now fordetaus. The rotter has
been virtusMy turned lpslde out, re
vaniffshed, re-palnited, re-gllded, and
very nearly re-everythlng else. Every '
stateroom has been entirely refitted
with handsome and costly furniture,
silver drinking apparatus, and side
board decorations. The ladles' saloon
has been turned Into a pila.ial d. aw
ing room, and in this part of the boat
can be seen the culmination of all the
artistic decoration and lavish expendi
ture so noticeable In every foot of her
space. AH the furniture lit this saloon
has been upholstered elegantly In
heavy blue plush and hangings of the
richest kind are everywhere. The car
pets are the finest that money could
buy, and everything down to the
smallest detail is harmonized perfectly.
All Is gaudy, yet nothing Is gaudy.
It Is all arranged In such excellent
taste that the eye instinctively recog
nizes first comfort, and then beauty
of the most elaborate order.
The electric light plant Is entirely
no, and Is the most extensive et earn
er plant contained on any craft enter
ing the Columbia river. A four thous
and candle-power search light that
oan turn nine-tenths of a circle and
that can be worked from either the
hurricane deck or the pilot houiio, Is
one of the sights. Another Is the cap
tain's cabin, a dream of luxury with
electrio bells, call buttons, and all the
paraphernalia of a first class ocean
steamer. The engines have new valves
and two exhaust heatars, which, with
the absence of the old copper keel and
enlargement of the wheel houses, give
the Potter her Increased speed. Th
wheelihouses are colored In a delloate
shade of blue, relieved by rich gliding
In gimceful lines. The officers' quar
ters are all newly fitted out, and the
veteran Pat Mbnan, the best known
steward on the Columbia, has apart
ments that look as If they were fur
nished for a young duohess, .barring of
oourse, that most necessary adjunct to
a steward's quarters the Mrttle medl
Ine chest and counter with brass rail

again all and much more than was
promised us when she went away.
