Birmingham, Al April 1(1 The presidential party had a delightful trip over the Georgia Pacific from Atlanta to this ei'.y. The president showed great interest in the cf rr, and evidences of enterprise to be a on every aide. The feature of the run was the prominent display of flags at all the stations, particularly at Tallapoosa, known here as "The Yankee city under the southern tun " because much New England money is invested there. At that the presipoint Mayor Head iotrodu-edent to the people and Mr. Harrison made a brief speech. The local postmaster then presented1 nickory cane to the president and postmaster general and other persona presented flower to the ladies of the party. There was a great caowd at Annieton, Ala., where the local military aod a band of Sunday school children with flags formed a line in front of the station. Each member of the presidential party was given a r'ne silk badge, suitably inscribed, while the ladies were given boqueta. Governor McKleeroy delivered an address of welcome and William Stevens spoke ia behalf of the colored population. The premdsnt replied, and in the course of nis remarks, said: "You are realizing the benefits of home markets for what you produce and I am sure you will unite with me in those efforts which we ought to make not only to till our own markets with all that this great nation of 65,000,000 needs. But to reach out to other markets and enter into competition with the world for them. Cheers. This we shall do, and with all this mechanical and commercial development we shall realize largely that the condition of the unification of heart and interest to which those who have spoke for you have sn eloquently alluded. Great cheers. Postmaster General Wanamaker also spoke briefly. The president's reception at Birmingham was a genuine ovation and the demonstrations were the noisiest that has been experienced on the trip so far. Governor Jones and staff, in full uniform, of com in it te and citizens a and met the party at Henryellyn escorted it to the city, where the president was welcomed by the mayor and other municipal ofifcers. Drawn up in line at the statton. were the grand army posts, confederate veterans, local militia, publio school children and immense crowds of people. The city was elaborately decorated with national colors and beautiful white dog wood blossoms and business was generally suspended. Addresses of welcome were made by Gov. Jones and Mayor Lane, and when the president arose to respond, he was greeted with deafening cheers. He thanked them deeply for the pleasant demonstration and spoke of the marvelous development of this region could be not which compre-rehende- d He told seen. until of he a number how years ago, listened with some incredulity to stories told him by Colonel Powell, one of the early promoters of Birmingham, lie thought the colonel was viscenary then, but now he wishes he had taken this fee fer professional services in Birmingham lots. Laughter. We thought the war a great calamity, added the president, and bo it was, and yet we can 6ee now that God let us through thelied Sea to development in material prosperity and to a fraternity that was not otherwise possible. Cheers. Out of all this freedom from the incubus of slaery, the south has found a new industrial birth. And besides all these, you have s of the cotton produced crop of the world, and it has brought you since the war eight million dollars of money to enrich your people. But as yet you are spinning in the south only 8 per cent, of it. Why not, with the help we will give you in the north, spin it all? Cheers. Why not. millions of while supplying sixty-fiv- e people, reach out and take the part we have not had in the commerce of the world? Cheers. I believe we are now to see a renassance in American prosperity and an upbuilding of the American merchant marine. I believe these southern ports that so favorably look out with invitations to the state of Central and South America shall yet see our fleets carrying the American flag and nroducts of Alabama to the markets of South America.

Tbe strife between Miss Phoebe Couzins. secretary of the board of lady managers of the World's Pair, and the executive committee ot that body has taken a new phase. When she reached her office this1 morning she found it locked, and the janitor informed her that he had been instructed not to permit her to enter. Miss Couzins thereupon took possession of an adjoining room and announced that she would hold possession of it day and night until the trouble is settled. She continues to hold the fort and this afternoon sent out for lunch. During the day 6he received a telegram from St. 'Loufe saying that arrangements were being made for holding a mass meeting of ladies to protest against the action of the executive committee, and ?a deputation of Chicago ladies had decided to make arrangements for a similar mass meeting here. The executive committee has ap pointed Mrs. Susan G. Cook, of Tennessee, "acting secretary of the World's Fair board of lady managers, vice Phoebe Couzins, discharged." About forty Chicago ladies held a meeting tonight endorsing Miss Couzins, and a committee whs appointed to assist her in the tight. Miss Couzins did not remain at the World's Fair headquarters throughout the night. She. is still a member of the board of lady managers even though debarred from the secretary's sanctum. In an interview tonight she said: "If need be, I will take to the platform and set this business aright be fore the people as a matter of national importance, as there seems to be a Bug gestion of some, kind of political chicanery behind the entire controversy." Pacific Rollins Mill. Chicago, April 16. The Pacific rolling mill, a corporation in San Francisco, secured leave from Judge Tuley to tile a petition in the Pacific railway litigation. It states that the Pacific railway company is indebted to the petitioneis upon a bill of exchange for 850,000, accepted Mav 20, 1800, and another accepted September 23, 1890, for 820,400. As collateral security for these loans the Pacific Railway company hypothecated eighty first mortgage bonds of 81,000 each of the Los Angeles Cable Railway company. The petitioner is desirous of foreclosing its first lien upon the bonds and to do so it is necessary to make the receiver a party defendant to the suit. The court granted authority to sue trie receiver. Hempstead Washburn Elected. Chicago, April 16.

Kansas Cm', April 16. At the western cooiuiercal oucgress today the different discuiocs more than onus tuck s turn toward the coinage question. There is to strong s tendency towards tree coin age that it would break forth and pre sent itself at every issibi oocaaioa. At toe afternoon Bebwon J. !.. lorrey. of St. Louis, read s paper on "Uniform Commercial Laws," and devoted particu lar attention to the subject of bankrupt law. Tor rey explained the provisions of the Torrey tiankruptcy bill, and prom ised it would be before the next congress with tbe endorsement of the commercial bodies all over the country, Hon. A. J. Warner, of Ohio, addressed the congress on "Ihe relation or money to bank credits." There should be a limit to bank credits. State banks no longer had the power to issue money, but they created money Since by the issuance of bank credits. they arrogated to themselves the f u no tion of the state, they should come under state supervision. At present the bank credits in proportion to the actual money in the banks was as from five to seven to one. It was out of this unsubstantial structure of credit money, created out of nothing, that every panic waa known to have its beginning. It should be restricted to $3 of credit for II ot actual monev. Panics would then be Take thousands of millions impossible. from the upper story ot our system of bank credits, and broaden the foundation. of our money system by adding a thousand million or at least live hundred millions to the real money of gold, silver or paper, and a panic would be impossible, as it should be. Which is preferable a basis of gold that is constantly narrowing and its production diminishing, coupled with the system of bank credit currency subject to expansion and collapse as interests and the cupidity ot banks may dictate, or less credit and more actual money in which confidence was never wanting?" Judge R. M. Widner. of Los Angeles. CaL, read a paper on "The National "The circulating meMoney System. dium must be increased," said Widner, "to meet the growth ot the population, or the business of the country must be killed off until it is within the compass of the present circulation. There is not enough money in circulation and the want of money has caused the stringency in the money markets. Free coinage would not accomplish the de sired results for the population was too fast. The increasing e to free objection great was that the annual product of any 140,000.000 worth when coined re presented &M,000,(XX) or a profit of $18,- 000,000 to a few silver producers, that was of too great local benefit to be of any benefit to the whole people. The farmers alliance sheme ot, loaning money at a low rate of interest secured by land, was too local and partisan to b6 accept ed. Widnery would have the system based upon the authority of the people backed by the wealth of the people aDd administered for the benefit or the whole population, using all gold and silver and supplementing their use by a local issue of from ?20 to 825 per capita. Inflation would constitute constitutional repudation and the attended change of the gold dollar as a measure of value was a danger to be contended against. In order to overcome these dangers and to give his system stability, he proposed an amendment to the constitution of the United States providing for a national currency circulating medium to the amount of 620 per capita as shown by the census of 1890 and each sxeceeding census. Other addresses were made on the top-heav- y g "coin-coinag- Bubject of money. In the evening a reception was ten dered to the delegates at the Commercial club. The resolutions of the committee, which has completed its work, was read this afternoon, and the report, which was not unanimous, will be made tomorrow. The majority and minority agree except on three resolutions, as follows: Favoring free coinage of silver; favoring an issue of legal tender notes redeemable thareat in gold aud silver in a quantity sufficient for the business of the country; favoring a tariff for revenue only. The minority opposed those resolutions and will present a report thereon. The other resolutions praise Secretary Rusk's coo-duof the agricultural department and favor the federal improvement of the Mississippi river; irrigation by the national government of arid lands; the consummation of treaties of reciprocity with those countries with which the United States changes products; and the construction by the federal govern- ot a deep water harbor on the Gulf of Mexico.

The members of the Vanderbilt party denied any knowledge of tbe alleged Gould Huntington deal and declared their trip had no special significance. Nevertheless they bad no sooner landed in Chicago than various rumors as to their mission bee an to cir culate.

Bismarck Sure on a Second Ballot Berlin, April 16. The returns from Geesteraunde are still incomplete, but is PORTER AND ITALY AT IT. In the Argument the American Almost Gets Cornered. New York, April 16. Italian papers which reached New York yesterday con tain among many interesting comments of the press upon the departure of Baron Fava from Washington, the official version of an interview which took place at the It ilian foreign office between United States Minister Porter and Count D' Arco, who, during the absence of di Rudini, had charge of foreign affairs. The interview lasted two hours and the tbe official Italian version of it is most interesting. Minister Porter defended at some length the conduct of the United Stiites federal government and sought to secure a delay. Finally Count d'Arco turned and put to the American minister the following question in pressing terms: 'Suppose." said he, "a dozen Americans were accused of treason and assassinated in some Italian citv. Suppose our gov ernment should claim it was unable to proceed against the guilty parties, not having power to interfere with the local judicial authorities in the discharge of of the duties which were lmcumbent upon them. What would you do? What would the federal government of the United States do?" At this demand Minister Porter let it be clearly seen that in such cases he would be prepared "to overthrow half the world." "What would the civilized world what would the United States of America think of the action, or rather of such inaction?" Minister Porter was evidently greatly embarrased and sought to explain how the constitution of the United States differed essentially from the Italian confederation and how it was simply impossible for the federal government to interfere in the local affairs of Louisana, but Count d'Arco replied quickly: "We have nothing to do with shortcomings or your constitutional merit- We d!not know a constitution worthy of a civilized people which does not secure a full and just penal code which is the 'first basis of civilized so ciety. Minister Torter demanded that Italy should delay anv further steps in the matter until a definite reply to her representations and to her demand was made by the federal government Removing: the Duty from Cereals. Paris, April 16. The Side says the government will probably be compelled to ask parliament before August for the suspension of the duty on cereals and that Germany expected the Reichstag shortly to take similar action. sufficient to show that Bismarck must submit to the indignity of a supplementary ballot, unless, as is not probable, be retiree from the contest The poll has been a light one, owing to the great of national liberals. Prince Bismarck" is certain of election on a Becond ballot, as he now lacks only 1,000 votes of hauing the absolute major ity as required by law, and the Freisin-nig- e aud Guelph voters are almost certain to support him or at least abstain from voting rather than give the seat to a socialist candidate.
