"Washington. June 7. Before the be
ginning of the debate on the silver bill at
the request of Mr. Payson. of Illinois, Mr.
Conger, of Iowa, in charge of the bill,
modified Ids substitute so as to provide
that the treasury notes issued in pursu
ance of the bill shall be a legal tender iu
payments of all debts public and private,
striking out the following words, ''except
where otherwise expressly stipulated m
Mr. Payson said that lie realized the sub
stitute would in substance pass this body
and that it would be done in obedience to
public sentiment, which he believed to bo
universal in favor of a larger use of silver
as a money metal, of a f uther increase of
the currency of the country.
Mr Payson proceeded to discuss the silver
policy of Hayest Arthur, Cleveland and
Harrison administrations. He referred to
the denunciation of the Cleveland ad
ministration by the Republican party and
said he endorsed that denunciation.
Nothing he had said afforded him more
pleasure than the denunciation of Cleve
land's administration for its treatment of
silver. Ho come down to the Republican
administration and it was no better. Ap
plause. Silver had had no friend in the
treasury department since the agitation
begun and when he was asked to vote for
a proposition confiding to the secretary of
the treasury's discretion in the use of
silver as a money metal, if this were the
end of it, he would vote against it. Never
had a discretion been confided to a secre
tary on this question when it was possible
to evade it that it had not been evaded.
Continuing, Mr. Payson said, that instead
of being a bill "for the coinage of
silver it was a measure which practically
prohibited the coinage of the standard
Mr. Mitchler, of Pennsylvania, was op
posed to.botn propositions pending before
Mr. Hatch, of Missouri, reiterated and
endorsed everything the gentleman from
Illinois had said relative to the hostile at
titude of the treasury department towards
Mr. Cannon said ho did not apprehend
that the bill was perfect, but take it all in
all it was the soundest measure that the
house could originate and pas, and from
every standpoint and all things considered
it met his unqualified approval and en
dorsement, standing as he did between tho
extreme silver men on the one hand and
the gold mono-metalist on the other. Let
members see to it that in the storm of fury
and passion and demagognery that they
legislated so that man should not be cheat
ed morning and night or noon out of what
h-t had justly earned applause.
Mr. Anderson, of Kansas, spoke in favor
of free coinage.
Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, said the bill did
not meet his approval. He would vote for it
because he knew that in another forum it
would be amended.
Mr. Funston, of Kansas, and Mr. Con
nell, of Nebraska, favored a free coinago
Mr. McKinley, of Ohio, said that tho bill
would utilize every dollar of the silver
product of the United States. It provided
ulso that the instant silver was on a parity
with gold, that very instant there would
be free and unlimited coinage of silver.
Congress mut see that the money pro
vided for tho people must be absolutely
safe from financial wrecks and from com
mercial convulsions and be absolutely safe
and secure in the hands of the holders.
For one, he would not vote against the bill
and thus deprive his people and his coun
try and the industries of his country of the
"S50.000.000 of circulating medium. Ap
olausoj. Tho hour of 3 o'clock having arrived, the
previous question was considered as or
dered. Tine amendments to the original bill of
fered by Mr. Taylor, of Illinois, and Mr.
o'Dcmiiell, of Michigan, were iuformally
Mr. McComas' amendment to the substi
tute was also adopted. It provides that
when free coinage is obtained the monthly
bullion purchases shall cease. The subti
i ite as amended was then agreed to and
he question recurred upon agreeing to the
bill as amended by the substitute.
Mr. Bland, of Missouri, moved to recom
mit the bill with instructions to the com
mittee to report a free coinage bill.
The motion to recommit was defeated

THE RATES EXCESSIVE.
Trans-Missouri Charges Out of Proportion
"Washington, June 7. Tho interstate
commerce commission sent to the senate
today a report upon the investigation made
by it under a senate resolution directing
the commission to inquire into the truth
of the allegation that tho long and short
haul clause of the interstate commerse act
operated to prevent a reduction on tho
rates of transportation of food products
from the Mississippi valley. The report
begins by synopsizing the testimony col
lected by the commission at tho Topeka,
Lincoln, Omaha, Sioux City, Peoria, Chi
cago, Boston, Baltimore, Now York, New
port News and Washington, the substance
of which has been printed from time to
time, and the commission then discussed
the reasonableness of cost of freight trans
portation at great length, and says:
"We are constrained by all tho facts to
believe that any rate or greater charge
from the Missouri river than 17 cents to
Chicago and 12 to the Mississippi, east side,
is excessive and that the rates should be
so reduced and adjusted and a reduction of
2 cents should be made from stations west
of the Missouri river in Nebraska and
The commission says that the rates on
grain from Kansas and Texas points are
unreasonably high for long distances and
grossly excessive and exorbitant for the
shorter and should be reduced. Wheat and
flour should bear the same rate, which
would nor be more than 15 per cent above
the rates on corn and oats.
"We think no better rule applicable to
the matter under investigation," says tho
comraission,"than that applied by railroads
themselves, in accordance with which
rates are so adjusted as to secure the larg
est exchange of commodities. In tho car
riage of the great staple, rato yields to
moderate profits are both justifiable
and necessary. The rates which wo havo
determined upon as resonable have been
arrived at on this basis. They are from 50
to SO per cent higher in proportion to tho
service rendered than rates east of tho
Mississippi, if estimated on a distance
The commission renews the recommend
ations of its annual reports of lbi8-b9, that
that the third section of the act be so
amended as to make provision for through
carriage at through rates over connecting
A COTTAGE FOR MRS. HARRISON.
WAsnrxoTOX, June 7. Editor McKeean,
of the Philadelphia Ledger, accompanied
by Postmaster General Wanamaker,
called yesterday upon Mrs. Harrison at
the white house. There McKeean on be
half of a number of subscribers to the
gift whose names are known, presented
Mrs. Harrisun with the deed and keys to
the cottage at Capo May point where she
enjoyed herself last summer. Mrs. Harri
son was overcome with surprise. She is,
however, greatly delighted with the gift
and is especially proud because of the fact
that this is thelirst piece of real estate she
lias ever owned in her own name. The
cottage is a large, old fashioned building
containing about twentv rooms and it is
probable that Mrs. Harrison will visit
Cape May point within a week or two to
inspect her now possession and to make
preparation for residing there during the

Washington, June 7. Representative

contained in tho following preamble to
Whereas, Reports are being widely cir
culated through the newspapers reflecting

Berlin. June 7. Chancellor v on Cap
privi did not send a circular note to the
powers nor did he communicate with any
foreign representative except the Austrian
embassador on the subject of Prince
Bismarck's utterance in interviews with
newspaper correspondents. The alleged
remarks of the prince to the effect that
Germany was not bound by treaty to as
sist Austria in tho event of a
war with Russia over the strug
gle for dominance in tho Balkan
peninsula caused Count Knnolaky to in
quire how far the emperor and chancellor
shared this interpretation of the responsi
bilities of the alliance. General von
Caprivi in his response avoided the dis
cussion of such an interpretation and de
clined to attach any value to the reported
interviews with the retired statesman.
Priuce Bismarck has written to both

from these reports of interviews. The em
peror and his ministers concur in respect

They recognize his full right to a
public expression of his views on state

choose. Suggestions have been given to
the official press to allude to Prince Bis

speak of him with unvaring courtesy as a
statesman who has rendered the greatest
services to his country, but who has
probably outlived his capacity to guide

low them to land and today the captain of
the Umbria put them off in a small boat in

Collector Erhardt demanded a prompt
explanation of the British steamer's action
in putting the people off in mid-stream
after they had been duly returned to the
ship by the immigration authorities.lt was
explained that notice had been received by
the Umbria's captain of tho return of the
contract laborers and tho reason ho had
not put the people off upon the pier was
that he did not want to engage in a knock
down fight with the custom inspectors, so
he had dropped them upon the tug. The
Cunard company will bo obliged to sup
