est. Section 8. That this act shall take effect
thirty days from and after its passage.
Mr. McComas. of Marylaud, moved to
amend the substitute by adding to section
fi the words "and the purchase of silver
bullion shall be suspended while it is be
ing so deposited for coinage."
Mr. Taylor, of Illinois, olfered an amend
ment to the original bill providing that if
the net amount of silver bullion received
shall bo less than 2,000,000 in any one
month the secretary of the treasury shall
on the succeeding mouth purchase a suffi
cient amount to supply the deficiency.
Mr. O'Donnell, of Michigan, moved to
amend the amendment by striking out
2.000,000 and inserting $3,000,000. This
exhausted the rules, and although Mr.
Bland va.i on his feet demanding recogni
tion, he was ignored by the speaker.
Mr. Conger, of Iowa, spoke in favor of
Mr. Williams, of Illinois, spoke in favor
of the free coinage of silver. He was op
posed to experimenting in regard to silver.
Let congress determine here and now
whether the country should continue to I
upe silver as money or not, ar.d if the ques-'
tionwere decided in the affirmative, let
the government coin silver according to .
the constitution. He had no doubt that
constituents in favor of free fbinage had
a greater devotion for their people than
for the secretary of the treasury and Ins
administration. He believed that they
would stand by the interests of their con
stituents. Pending further debate the house ad

That was far nreferablo to the free coin ago i

for every inhabitant. j
Parsing to the question of tho demone-j
tiznur of silver m lb.J jlr. biierman gave a
history of that, transaction so as to set at :
rest iorever all tue charges or oau iaitn
and conspiracy in connection with it. Ho i
declared that at that time tho silver dollar j
was an imatre of tho past, lost to sight j
and memorv. and ignored bv two genera-
time was worth 1.03 as compared with
gold. The bill had been amply discussed
for two or tiiree years and its objects were
well known. No bill, he said, had ever
been more fully discussed than that
and yet his friend Mr. Morrill and
himself (who had voted against
it because it discontinued the charges for

gold to oe noaruen or exported, me iree j
coinage of silver would be a reversal of the
established policy of the government.
From tho beginning it would limit
the coinage to a single metal,
and that silver. As sure as fate
silver would (with free coinage
of silver be the only standard of money in
the I nit ed iUxtej. The pound sterling
would be worth ffi instead of l.S3 and the
American dollar would be as in colonial J
limes, worth 3 English shillings or 4 j
the Lnited state's. ine pound sterling
In conclusion, Mr. Sherman said that he
would vote for any measure that would
in his judgment secure and maintain a bi-
metallic standard and one that would not
demonetize gold nor cause it to be hoarded
or exportedrbut that would establish both
gold and silver as a common standard at a
jixed ratio, not only in the United States.
but in all the nations of the world. This
was no time lor a radical change of
public policy which seemed to
have no motive except to reduce
the burden of obligations freely taken, a
change that was iiReiy to impair tne puo-
lic credit and produce disorder and con
fusion in all monetary transactions.
Others might reason for the change, but
ho preferred to stand by the standards of
value that had the approval and sanction
of every party which had administered the
government since its beginning.
Mr. Teller said Mr. Sherman was infavor
of a high standard and that standard gold.
He (Mr. Sherman) was for the abandon
ment of silver. He (Mr. Teller) welcomed
Mr. Stewart cave from his point of view 1

amendment No. t, so that no senator
member knew what he was voting for.
Mr. Sherman produced the original bill
of 1873 Irom the files of the senate kept by
Mr. McDonald, the chief cierk of the sen
ate, to show that not only was the amend
ment read and voted on In the senate, but
that it was amended on his (Mr. Sher
man's) morion, and that when the confer
ence committee considered the disputed
section it waa again amended m confer-
Mr. Stewart persisted in his assertion
that the ameudment had not been read
and argued that at all events the people
ought to have a new trial for a
mistake if for no cause. They now
asked for preservation of silver and they
were told that it would disturb the settled
financial policy of tho world- A settled
poiicy established as that was ought to be
disturbed. It ought not to be sustained.
Mr. Sherman expressed his regret that a
United States senator, when he was thus
convinced and had the testimony before
him did not say frankly and fairly; that he
withdrew every charge of impropriety.
Mr. Stewart said he had been charged
with being present when the transaction
took place and yet he was to be denied the
right of exonerating himself by giving the
printed record. He had not sought to re
flect on the senator from Ohio but to de
fend his own honor.
Mr. Aldrich said that not only had Mr.
Stewart voted on the amendment but he
had actually spoken upon two sections of
the bill, one ot which prohibited any silver
coinage but half dollars, quarters and
dimes and the other of which provided
that no deposit should be received for sil
ver coinage. How could the senator say
after that that he did not know that silver
was to be demonetized?
Tho silver bill went over without action.
Bills were taken from the calendar and
passed granting pensions of 650 a month to
the widow of Hear Admiral Donaldson and
to the widow of Commander Winslow, of
the Kearage. The senate then adjourned.

MISSOURI'S WHEAT PROSPECTS BAD.
St. Louis, Mo., June 5. The secretary
of the Missouri state board of agriculture
will say in his crop report for June 1, un
der date of June 7, that the effect of the
last two more than unusually abundant
wheat crops in, this state was an increase
last fall of the previous years area, a
seeming reversal of the policy of a few
years past, which had been to "decrease the
wheat acreage. Notwithstanding, how
ever, this increased area sown, the number
of acres to be harvested this
season will be less than last
year by at least 30,000. The con
dition of the present crop is
such that the yield per acre must be be
low the general average for the state and
considerably below tho yield of the last
two years. "The dry weather that has pre
vailed for most part during the last month
in northwest Missouri has materially
lessened the prospects in that section,
where one month ago the outlook was the
most promising. There has been a decline
in condition in all sections of the state.
Many fields which one month ago seemed
to be quite promising are since
heading 'proving to be nearly all
chess. A considerable ai-ea has been
plowed up since this has been known.
Other fields are so thin that they will
hardly return the seed, but are allowed to
stand and become seeded to irass and clo
ver, me nessian iy is worKing quite se
riously in southwestern Missouri, while in
smith pastern Missouri the crain anis IS
threatening to do some damage. There
have been a few complaints of chinch
bugs, but so far no damage is reported.
Tbe percentage condition of wheat is 78,
compared with an average.

A BUNCH OF CHEAP TICKETS OUT.
Chicago.HL, June5.-There is more trouble
brewing among western roads over the
restoration of passenger rates on June 9.
The Chicago & Alton and several other
roads assert that the Chicago, Burlington
& Quincy agent at Kansas City has sold
500 tickets In one bunch Kansas City to St.
Louis at S2 each, less the commission. The
Burlington, it was said, acknowledges
having made the sale but says the tickets
were sold to a real estate nrm for an ex
cursion. The Journal states that the
rates will probablv not bo restored
until June 15, when these tickets expire
unless the Burlington buys up and retires
General Passenger Agent Eustis, of the
Burlington, says that the block of tickets
referred to was sold to Sam Scott, of St.
Louis, a real estate dealer who took this
method of booming a new sub-division
which he has opened at St. Louis.
They are round trip tickets between
St. "Louis and Kansas City and are
- eclusively for Scott's use, having his ad
vertisements on the back of them. Mr.
Eustis has information that none of them
are on sale. The Christian Endeavor
society people tried to buy them but with
out success. Mr. Eustis has offered $1,000
for anv of them that can be secured by
nnv railroad out of' the proper hands.
They expire June 14. The Burhngt on will
restore rates on June 9.
