A suit that; isn't suitable is

that the besn is not much more

you know of anything more
mortifying than to have a good
reason for being a triiie asham

The governor thinks that the Cheyenne
and Arapahoe lands will be opened not
later than April 10, and that the proclama
tion will be issued on the 1st. An effort is
boing made to have the townsitcs in the
Cheyenne and Arapahoe country run a
mile east and west, rather than to have
them run north and south, as ordered by
tho department. This will make the
houses ou the principal street front either
north or south, and make them cooler in
summer. It is to be hoped that the gov
ernor and Major Weigle will succeed in
effecting this change. All the townsites
bad been agreed upon, but it was a little
premature, owing to the fact that the al
lotments had not all been made. The
original plan may be somewhat modified.
Governor Seay has issued the following
notice to the people of Oklahoma:
"Upon assurances from the weather
prophets, who como to me well recom
mended, that April 6 will give us an Ital

Washington. March 23. The silver de
bate iu the house of representatives today
showed the intensity o the public interest
in the great question which now faces the
Fifty-second congress for solution and
which threatens to become a political
issue in the DiesidentiU campaign of the
autumn. The Hpeeches were all of a
stiont-ly positive character. They were
the arguments of men who have stern con
victions upon the side which they respect
ivelj represent, aud they were uncompro
mising in their declaration of the policy
which s-hould be pursued. Gradually the
couviction is forcing itself upon the mem
bers that it is not to be a drawn battle
ttiat the issue is one which cannot be
averted, and that the day is near at hand
when the house of representatives must
declare on a yea and nay vote its position
on the gret question of free coinage. The
gentlemen who pinned their hopes on the
chauces of a compromise at the last hour
by the substitution ot a bill providing for
an international monetary congress are
Even the indomitable Mr. Tracy of Xew
York concedes that the free coinage bill
will have a clear majority If a .final vote is
ever reached upon its passage. Just what
he and his anti-free coinage associates will
do to avert this final vote he has not yet
announced, but chairman Bland and bis
friends fully expect fillibusteriug tactics
tomorrow on the part of their opponents,
and this morning rumors were rife that
the committee ou rules would, in this
event, bo requested promptly to report a
rule naming the day and hour for taking
the final vote. In this manner only can
interminable fillibusteriug be prevented,
aud tho free coinage men are preparing to
demand the remedy tipon the very first
manifestation of the need for it.
cMr. Tracey announced that the first mo
tion to be made by the opponents of the
bill at the conclusion of the debars and be
fore any disposition to fillibuster is mani
fested will be in tho form of a resolution
recommiting the bill to the coinage com
mittee, with instructions to report a sub
stitute bill providing for an international
mouetary congress for the adjustment of
the Mlvor problem. It is believed that this
motion will receive the support of mauy
members, who will othei wise feel com
pelled to vot for fiee coinage, and that it
is therefore the stiongest motion that, can
lie made by the opponents of the bill. If
it is defeated all the resources, of parlia
mentary procedure will then be luvoked
to prevent a final vote on its passage. The
general debate will close at 2 o'clock to

Messrs. Warner of Xew Xc-rt.. liravlex

Stout of Michigan, and Fitch of Xew
York, then spoke in opposition to the
Mr. McKeighan of Nebraska, one of tho
People's party representatives, and a
member of the coinage committee, said
that before enterini: upon any affirmative
discussion of the bill he proposed to dis
cuss the minority report, which had about
it the perfume of the banking business.
It was impossible to gather from that re
port the idea that money had any neces
sary relation to the products of the soil.
The report was begotten of avarice, aud
its fruition was the spoliation of industry.
It must be a case of willful prevaricatiou,
he said, for anyone to claim that
creditors had any" right to expect pay
ment in any except the least valuable
money. The" cry about a ?0-cent dollar
was a deliberate attempt to suborn the
public conscience. The standard silver
dollar was of 100 cents, and the clap-trap
about a 70-cent dollar was simply an
assault tipou the dictionary. They forgot
to mention that the true test of the excel
lence and honesty of mouey was its work
ing as an instrument for ttio exchange of
goods. Free coinage would wipe out the
dispnrity between the coin and bullion
value of tho dollar, and our silver dollar
all over the world will be of tho same value
as the metal in it. A uew conditiou would
arise. What the value of a dollar would be
as expressed in gold may be another ques
tion. Competent students insist that it
would restore the old ratio between gold
and silver bullion of 10 to 1, and the argu
ments of those who insisted to the con
trary were inconsistent.
The gentleman from Ohio 'Mr. Harter),
said Mr. McKeighan, had sent out notices
to the Grand Army posts, asking them to
protest against the passage of this bill.
He had been a soldier, and he could uot
forget that he had enlisted in the army of
the United States when gold and silTer
were the only legal tender currency. He
had received depreciated paper, and had
never heard a howl from the follows who
represented the banking interests of the
country. This duplicitv did not fool the
old soldiers. Applause. A man niu-jt
he blind who did not see that wealth was
becoming a great political power in this
country. The people were organized, aud
would never cease this agitation uutil cor
porations nnd monopolies would bow in
obedience to just laws. When that day
came, tho people would be sovereigu long
live the sovereigu.
Mr. Bushncll of Wisconsin spoke in
favor of a proposed amendment providing
that hereattor the silver dollar shall con
tain one ounce Troy of pure silver.
After a speech bv Mr. Pencius of Iowa
in opposition, the house took a recess.
At the evening session of the house
Messrs. Coombs of New York, Bacon of

Washington. Mnrch "i3. In answer to
the resolution calling upon him to iuform

July 14, 1890, the amount of silver dollars

silver dollars coined were available for the

Iu this reply the secretary says that

cost of SS5, 407,392, In payment of whloh
there ware issued within that period the
treasury notes authorized, by the act to
the amount of $65,230," 1 2, leaving u bal
ance of $231,680, which represents the
amount of tho purchases of bullion made
at the mints of Sau Fraucisco, Xew Or
leans and Carsou City late iu February,
the reports of which reached the depart
ment after the close of that mouth.
There were coined, says the letter. within
the period mentioned 23,032.475 standard
dollars, with a wastage of &J8.933 not yet
adjusted, and there were held lu tho treas
ury at the olose of business on the 23th
ultimo 02,0-59.503 fine ounces of silver,
which cost $61,437 330. Of the silver dol

certained to be net seigniorage, is covered

Respecting the redemption or exchange
of ailver dollars, Secretary Foster says that
the department hRs not redeemed silver
dollars or silver certificates in gold or

silver dollars or certificates for gold or uold
certificates. In conclusion, Secretary
Foster says that silver dollars and silver
certificates that are received for public

president's earliest callers this morning
was General John W. Foster, who is assist
ing him in tho Bering sea negotiations,
aud Senator Sherman, chairman of the
senate committee ou foreign relatious
One of theqmstious under consideration
was the advisability of a prompt trans
mission to the senate of the correspondence
that has passod letweeti this country and
Great Britain. Tins correspondence will
have a most important liearmg ou the
senate's action on the peudiug arbitration.
It Is said thnt aii implied disposition on
tho part of Great Britain to resent any
itilerfence by this government with vessels
flying the Eugllsh llug eugnged in pelagic
sealing iu Bering so.v will undoubtedly
result iu the rejection of the treaty in its
present form. The correspoudeuce con
sists of two note, thu first being Lord
Salisbury's cabled not ot the 18th. and
tho second the reply from the president,
The prIdout' message transmitting
Lord Salisbury' reply to the last note from
this -overument relative to the modus
vivendi was laid before the senato in ex
ecutive session at 12 o'clock. Lord fcahs
bury's reply, as already stated. Is a virtual
reiteration of hia declluatiou to iruew the
modus vivendi on the same term as ex
isted last year. Lord Salisbury's note may
be described as a synopsis of a dctailud re
ply to the state department's note which is
to follow by mail. His refusal to consent
to a renewal of the modus vivendi is ac
companied with several counler-propo
bltions. tho readiug of which was reeei'ed
with ill-suppressed irritation by theseitate.
The general character of the note is de
scribed as evasive and equivocating.
The president'-1 rejoinder was also trans
mitted to the senate. It is a pungent com
munication, in which the president broad
ly, but in diplomatic language, bints that
Lord Salisbury has not met his overtures
in a straightforward, business-like ini-n-ner.
The president insists upon a renew.'!
of the modus vivendi. without reference to
insignificant or irrelevant negotiation,
nud closes his note with tho assertion that
if the government of Great Britain de
cline to astist in the protection of thu seals
during the arbitration of the claims of the
L'ntteU States, he will proceed to enforce
the laws aud exclude poachers from Ber
iug sea if the military force of the United
btates is required to accomplish it.
The note created a sen-atiou iu the sen
ate. Altera half hour's discussion thu
correspondence was referred to tho com
commuteo ou foreign relations and the
doors wero reopened.
The gravity of the case has led to a re
newal of efforts by the senators to prevent
the public from being made acquainted
with the facts until the correspondence
has further progresd There whs ho ex
pression of opiuion by tho president in his
letter of transmittal; but this was not
needed, in view of the clearly defined po
sition assumed by him iu hi rejoinder to
Lord Salisbury, which appeared to meet
with the unanimous approval of the seoa
tors, although the session Itelf was too
short to disclose officially the standing of
senators. Although there has beeu
nothing in the nature of a direct
voto upon the treaty of arbitration,
and wuile there is a well defined oppowi
tlontoiti's a surrender by the Lotted
States of right acqnlred by treaty from
Rusia, it can he stntel that the treaty
will soon be ratified by the senat. But
resolutions will accompany it, reciting
that there does not appear to lo any suf
ficient rea-on for an abatement by the
United State of its claims to jurisdiction
pending arbitration, and autlH-rluug the
president to uo all the force of the mili
tary arm of the govermneul U insure the
protection ot the rights of the United
As Intlrmb-d above. Lord Salisbury
docs not, in his note, refuse to eater into
a modus vivendi of some kind he do
not flatly refuse to b party to wm
arraugement but, dtplomatioaJly tpeak
ing, he "fails to oons-nt" to the propo
sition made by this government. Inas
much ai the sennte has refused to make
the correspondence public, it i exceed
ingly dillkuU to get x clear -tHtemrnt of
the t-xact idt-a intended to be coaviy-"l
in the diplomatic language of Mich
correspondence as that laid bfora Ue
senate todar. but, undoulMedlv the
impression generally conveyed by the read
ing wa.s that Lord Salisbtiry u-m refusal
to ren-w the nrraoKtjm,rit of last year.
The correspondence i-t Mtl conidrd in
corapifl e. and the way is stili open for
further letter-writing, in the Hue of an ei
denvur oil the part of -men tdP to show
bow far the other psrty is in the wrong.
Underlying the formal pbraH-JoKy of
diploroacr, however, , an evideet inten
tion on th pert of this governmeat to
bring th matter to the point of definite
determination before toe centlng mmb is
