PRESIDENT’S JESSAGE Coming Report About Completed. CABINETCONFERENCE McKinley Informed Members That Mes sage Was Hear Done, DID HOT READ ANT OF IT TO THEM I ; .1: Hopes For Some Kind or Cur rency Reform Legts'ation HIS IDEA OF REFORMS NEEDED Law Providing That Greenbacks Be Paid Out As Fast Redeemed in Gold Should Be Repealed. Washington, Nov. 23.—The cabinet held a very short meeting, as the presi dent and several of its members at tended the wedding of Mr. Harlan, son of Justice Harlan, and Miss Noble. The time of the meeting was taken up with matters of the several departments. President McKinley informed the cabi net that his message was practically completed, but he did not read any por tion of it to them. It is probable that the message will be considered at the next meeting. President McKinley is said to be hope ful of something in the way of currency reform legislation at the coming session of congress, even if it shall not be all that he desires. His friends say that if the matter is made an administration measure and the whole pressure of the executive is exercised a majority in the senate can be obtained. Mr. McKinley’s idea is to secure leg islation that will at least prevent the gold reserve from being drawn on in a time of business stress. The law pro viding that greenbacks shall be paid on t as fast as they are redeemed in go d should, he believes, be repealed. He holds that redeemed greenbacks should not be paid out nnless deposits of gold coin of equal amount are placed in the treasury. A PENSION CASE DECIDED. Claim of Missouri Man For Twenty-SeVela Year.’ Back Par K.J acted. Washington, Nov. 23 —A pension claim which has been pending 27 years and which, if admitted, would- carry back pay of $25,000, has been decided by Assistant Secretary of the Interior Davis. It is the case of Gottlieb Eller sick of Missouri, whose claim for al leged total blindness, due to disease of the eyes contracted during the military service in 1864, is rejected. The case has attracted much interest and aud presented many perplexing features, but it was found that no record of the existence of any disease of the eye in. the service existed, nor was there competent testimony to show the in currence of any such disability iu the service. The claimant was discharged from the army in 1865 and did not lose his sight till 1868. No effort to establish his Claim, presentee iu 1870, was made till 1890, 25 yeats after his discharge, when most of those who could have testified from personal knowledge were dead. The decision holds that the claimant’s own statements were inconsistent and flatly contradictory of his most impor tant witnesses, aside from which the physicians and oculists decline to accept the oase of his present blindness as due to any service origin.

FATHER’S SHORTAGE OVER $600,000 It Took Place Last Summer, Since Which Time Youngman Brooded Over _ - Chicago, Nov. 23. —James M. Charn ley, Jr., the son of James M. Oharnley, the defaulting., treasurer of the Presbyterian Board of Aid for Colleges and Academies, disappeared from his uncle’s house last Saturday and is believed to hare committed sui cide in Milwaukee. Lying in the morgue in Milwaukee is the body of a man who answers the description of Oharnley. Hotel people found him dead in bed with a bullet hole in his temple, the right hand clutching a revolver. He had also taken a dose'Of poiton. Chagrin over the disgrace of his father, James M. Oharnley, according to his friends, drove to suicide James M. Oharnley, Jr., who was fonud in his room in the Hotel Pfeister, Milwaukee, with a bullet hole in his heart. James 'M. Oharnley, formerly president of the Presbyterian board of aid for colleges and academies, disappeared last summer short some $60,000 of the funds en trusted to him. This weighed heavily ou the son’s mind, and it Is said that for some time the young man had beeu ill. The sister and brother of yonng Oharnley. both of whom are ont of the city, were notified at once of the second disaster that had come to them. The brother, Charles, is in New York, and the sister, Miss Constance, is at Smith college.. This second chapter in the first sorrow comes with crushing weight, as young Oharnley had assumed the place at the head of the family which his father had so recently left vacant. During the days when the atotf of Mr. James M. Charuley’s shortage was being exploited in the papws, yonng Oharnley had remained iu this city and borne the brunt of the crimination, no toriety and disgrace. For months pre vious to his father’s disappearance, it is said, the impending disaster, which had hung like Damocles’ sword, by a single thread, likeiy at any time to be broken, was known to the youug man.

The one crying reform that is now needed in New York and Chicago is 200 uniformed women police men to walk the streets. "If Mr. Van Wyck or Mayor Harri son had the knowledge of existing so ciological conditions which they ought to have, aud which I hope their suc cessors will have, woman would be an - active police officer. If these gentle men wanted to know where to find women to fill the positions and fill them well. I could tell them. From the ranks of the Salvation Army and the Ameri can Volunteers could be obtained on short notice zOO women, whose pres ence on the streets of Chicago in uni form would do more toward the elimi nation of crime than many times that number of men. "It is often asked wtih relation to the women police idea how a woman would go about arresting a man. The fact is that under present conditions few men are arrested. Arrests constitute but a small part of a policeman’s duty. It ought to be jnst as much his duty to prevent people from becoming criminals as to take them into custody after they have gone wrong. It is in this direc tion that the presence of women iu the police department would be a benefit. , "I would rather be a police officer iff Chicago of Rew York than mayor of either city.
