Wabhi.noton. The Carli!e Lill
is losing ground and the fellver
fiieHtioii is ngain coming to the
front. Every day there U nn in
crease ,in the reluctance of the
leaders of the house and the com
mittee on rules to report an order
to limit debate and fix the time
for taking the final vote. The fact
is recognized that the paSHagu of a
free coinage till over the veto of
the president is imp nible, but
t'ie chances of the substitution of a
free coinage hill for tho Carlisle
bill are increasing every day.
A Urw Praiiiantial Palisa.
Washington. A bill wa in
troduced into the senate today by
Senator Quay authorizing thg
secretary of the treasury to pur
chase the land contained in block
29, Columbia Heights, a suburb of
Washington, as a site for a resident
for the president. The bill limits
the price to 13 per foot, with a
total appropriation of 1,000,000.
Barasri of Peaos.
Lo.vdon. Dispatches received
here tonight from Tokio indicates
clearly , that tho war between
China and Japan is practically
ended. Tho assurance giveu in
quarters known to bo thoroughly
cognizant of diplomatic affairs is
that the empire ot China has been
pfevadeJ upon to hasten the com
missioners to Japan, and that these
envoys will have such power of
concession as will without a doubt
enable them to bring about an im
mediate and thorough end to
Denver. The recent gold
strikes in the Leadville district are
causing wild excitement. Rail
roads are doing a large passenger
traffic, and the short liue from
Denver to the camn, is preparing
to run extra trains to accommodate
the travel. -

The Carliala BUI.
Washington. Chairman Spring
er's amendments today to the Car
lisle bill practically admits the
weakness of the bill as it was
originally introduced. It is not
thought that the amendments will
materially strengthen the bill.

London. Chairman Bartlett, of
the stockholders reorganization
committee of the Nicaragua Canal,
in an interview today said the
whole of the Nicaraguan shares at
his dicposal had been taken in
Nkw York. Bradstreet's Review
says: "An improvement in prices
is recorded in only a few leading
lines, wheat, copper and the lower
grades of-shoes which have long
sold at depressed figures. The out
look for trade after the holidays, is
fair, although flie larger Chicago
dealers report stocks on hand
larger than was expected, except
among the jewelers, who have had
an unexpectedly heavy trade. The
values of foreign trade in October
is nearly two xer cent more this:
year than last, owing to largely j

New York. Captain Schmitt
berger in his closing testimony be
fore the Lexow committee tonight
said: I consider the whole police
department rotten to the core. I
acknowledge the part I have
played and have made a clean
breast of it" If one-half the story
is true it is bad enough. About
tho only police officer not impli
cated was Byrnes, whom the cap
tain considers is honestly trying
to do the right, but has been
handicapped by money used in
politics. Commissioners Martin
and Sheehan, and Inspectors Wil

Sryaa Denounce tba Carliala Bill
Bryan addressed the house for two
hours today in opposition to the
Carlisle bill. He attacked the
administration for dumping into
the committee on banking and cur
rency of the house a hastily con
sidered bill like the one pending,
i ts weakness was - d-jmoustrated
when, after four days of verbal
bombardment, it had been' practi
cally withdrawn and another
measure substituted. Bryan said
that, stripped of its verbiage, the
bill wa a simple proposition to
authorize the government to loan
banks money at a low rate of in
terest, or at no rate, to be in turn
loaned by them at whatever rate
they could secure, ;
Springer's aai Bland'a Opinio i.
Washington. Chairman Spring
er is of the opinion that the Car
lisle bill will; be passed by the
house. "The measure" in its pre
sent form," he says, "commands
the support of all who are desirous
of securing a sound currency, with
the single exception, perhaps, of
the radical silver element, which
has no faith in any - kind of cur
rencyissuing banks, and i will ac
cept nothing but government is
sues of fiat money." Bland, of
Missouri, said: "I w ill urge the
substitution . I have already pre
sented, notwithstanding the
changeB made in the original Car
lisle bill. These changes are evi
dently designed to overcome
objections, but they do not over
come the one vital objection 'jf
putting the currency of the country
in the hands of the national

In a speech from the throne, which

peror said: "Our forces have been
victorious and are steadily pressing

of our treaties have already been
fulfilled with several countries, and
with others negotiations are pro- '
