'Bill The Day in
Washington, Feb. 27. The Democrats
of the senate spent as much of this day iu
caucus as yesterday. The proceediugs
were not marked by as many interesting
incidents, and the discussion today was
more of the character of argument iu favor
of the interests which the various senators
particularly represented. Yesterday Sen
ators Vest, Brice and White made rather
vigorous speeches. Today some of the
same senators made speeches, but they
were not quite so strong in terms. Iu or
der that all might have .time to say some
thing the roll was called by states, and
nearly every man in the senate had an
opprtunity to express his views. Some of
the states asked to be passed over Sen
ator White of California, the Alabama
senators and Senator Gorman reserving
themselves for tomorrow, when they will
close the general debate. The program is
then that the bill shall be gone over by
schedules and the committee instructed
as to what changes shall be made. That
was the understanding when the caucus
adjourned this evening, though it may be
npset and some other program sprung be
foie the closiug speeches.
The general tone of the caucus waa
against trusts, and several statements in
dicate that if any of the present Uuties or
proposed duties favored tbe trusts, that
the committee will be instructed to make
alterations. This was the only expression
of sentiment by some of the senators which
seemed to meet the approbation of those
who listened. This sentiment indicated a
disposition to allow a revenue duty on
sugar, but nothing in the way of disci itn
ination or protection tor the refined article.
There was talk for coal and iion ore and
for lead, by various senators, bat very
little could be learned as to how the sena
tors viewed these matters.
During the day the senator from New
York, Now Jersey and Delaware took oc
casion to oppose the income tax feature of
the bill. Senator Hill declaring that It was
very unpopular in bis state. His state
ments were sustained by Senators Mc
Pherson, Smith and Gray. The impres
sion seemed to be, however, that there
would not be even a demand for a vote on
the proposition to strike out tbe income
Senator Mills made ono of tlie concilia
tory speeches of the day. He said that
the bill was not wholly satisfactory to
him, but he would yote for any measure
that would reduce the rates of taxation
below the McKiuley law.
The senators from the states baring rep
seut'itives ou the finance comiiiitteee did
not have much to say, but what they said
was mostly iu favor of the bill.
The fight for coal wan ld py be West
Virginia senators, and Senator Cuindeu of
that state also urged a duty upon lumber.
Senator Iiuoch of North Dakota said
that he spoke for that vast region west ot
Wisconsin and through to the Pacific
coast, which was not tepresented in the
caucus. He made a plea tor a duty ou
wool, barley and lead. He asserted that
the west was greatly interested in lead,
and if something could be done for the
miners, who had practically lost every
thing on account ot tbe depression of sil
ver, he would like to see such protection
incidental to revenue as might be raised
on the articles.
Seuator Gorman has maintained a con
ciliatory tone throughout the caucus. His
speech tomorrow is looked forward to with
considerable interest, as it is believed that
he will make a general summing up of the
situatiou aud give his views with con
The Democratic senators from New
York, Ohio aud New Jersey are contend

The members of the finance committee
feel that they can, at any time after a rea
sonable attempt shall have been made to
conciliate all interests, secure a majority
of the caucus, but they say that they do
not wish to resort to harsh measures, and,
in their desire to present a bill which will
be sure of the solid party support aud pre

test for the present.
Washington. Feb. 27. Mr. Pence's
speech of yesteiday, in which he struck
tight and left at his colleagues in the
house, cut a prominent figure in today's
proceedings. Mr. Pence's reference to Mr.
Hainer had been incorrectly reported, and,
rising to a question of privilege, ho took
occasion to apologize for the personalities
he had indulged in; but Mr. Cooper of In
diana was not satisfied aud gave him a
Again today Mr. Bland was unable to
muster a quorum on his motion to close
debate on the seigniorage bill, and so he
allowed the debate to run ou without
Mr. Pence of Colorado, rising to a ques
tion of privilege, apologized for the lan
guage used by him yesterday in his col
loquy with Mr. Hainer of Nebraska. "I
should also suy." he continued, "that in
other utterances I have gone beyond the
language that should be used in a legisla
tive body. For such of them as tnistht bv
any construction be deemed unparliamen
tary, I cheerfully and Iadly apologize,
and I ask unanimous consent that the col
loquy between Mr. Hainer and myself be
stricken from the permanent record."
There was no objection, and it was so
This was not to be the end. however. Be
fore Mr. Pence has resumed his aeat, Mr.
Cooper ot Indiana rose to a question of
privilege, to call Mr. Pence to account for
tne reflection cast upon him yesterday.
Mr. Cooper read tbe words to which be
took exception, to the effect that he. Mr.
Bynnm and Mr. O.Ues bad last summer,
when the silver repeal bill was up, "obeyed
the commands and demands of the execu
tive, and traded aud swapped openly be
fore the eyes ot the world." He asked Mr,
Pence to explain what be meant, and the
Colorado representative again came for
ward. Mr. Pence said that even during the last
congress, when Henry Vitlard was here
trying to secure the appeal of the Sherman
law, Mr. Cooper had voted for free silver.
Yet, last fall, acting under the orders of a
Democratic administration, be bad
changed bis entire course. That justified
what be had said. Although Mr. Cooper
spoke for repeal," Mr. Pence concluded,
"he now ee!cs to save liis silver record by
supporting this biU an the face of the com
ing election "
Mr. Cooper said, ia reply, that what Mr.
Pence had said of bis silver record prior to
tbe present congress waw true. Bat io tbe
midst of tbe panic 15! spring he bad come
to the conclusion thai free coinige ffr tbe J
United States would bring untold disaster.
He made uo his mind to that before he came
to Washington to attend tbe extra session,
aud was so quoted. Taken in connection
with the other remarks of Mr. Pance, his
reflections could only mean that his posi
tion bad been shifted at the dictation of
the White House.
"While I honor Mr. Cleveland." said
Mr. Cooper, "as I do few meu, I desire to
say that I never bad any conversation
with Mr. Cleveland on the subject of tbe
Sherman law until after tbe bill was re
pealed. My conclusions were arrived at
entirely independent of others, and I con
sider the reflections of tbe geulleui-iu
from Colorado wbollv unkind, unjust and
untrue. I should differ from him ou any
subject under any circumstances with the
greatest degree of reluctance; but I sin
cerely believe that the gentleman's
utterances and conduct on this floor are
prompted by an interest which has over
whelmed him, and if he would stop aud
think where he has placed himself and
where he is going be would speedily re
trace his steps. He is interested largely
in silver mines, and if he will read the
statutes of congress and the laws of ibis
couutry he will learn that he has no right
to vote on this question, much less to
speak upon It. He has a direct personal
aud pecuniary interest in, the result of this
legislation, and if he would exercise that
dezree of caution, or modesty, or common
decency, that ought to commend itself to
a mau having a financial interest in tbe
pending leeislation, he would hesitate be
fore he attacked the motives of other gen
tlemen honorable men, who are serving
their country, a3 they believe, instead of
their personal gain."
Mr. Cummiugs jumped to his feet and
brought f oi th a laugh by shouting: "If
it is in order, I suggest that now is an
opportune time for some one to apolo
gize for his remarks with reference to the
Now York Democracy."
Mr. Geissenhaiuer of Xew Jersey then
'asked unanimous consent to consider a
bill to save the armament of tbe wrecked
Mr. Bland objected and moved that the
house go into committee of the whole to
consider his seigniorage bill, and pending
that motion he moved to close the general
debate to-morrow at three o'clock, and de
demanded tbe previous question-
The vote was taken aud resulted 164 to

yeas aud nays.
Further proceedings under the call were
dispensed with 103 to 0 and Mr. Bland,
seeing that it whs probable that a quorum
could not be secured, withdrew bis mo
tion to limit debate, Hnd moved to go into
the committee of the whole for further
debate, without limit.
Mr. Hatch took the chair, and Mr. Bow
ers of California was recoguized for fifteen
minute. He spoke in favor of the bill.
Mr. Bowers was followed by Mr. Allan

proposed to apeak on the measure, but to

only to his long experience in the

He weut ou to discuss the promibe given
at the time of the passage of the repeal
bill to the Democratic friends of silver,
which is uow being repudiated, and
gradually drifted into some observation
on the speech made by ex-Mayor Hewitt
in Naw York, a few days ago. reflecting
ou the caliber of some boutueru demo
crats. Mr. Cannon of Illinois opposed tho bill.
Mr. Heard of Missouri argued iu favor
of the first section of the bill, and urged
that it would be well to seputateit from
the second section. This would permit
tbe coinage of tbe seigniorage, and the
other propositions could be submitted at
a subsequent time.
Representative Bryan of Nebraska said
that he did notsharo in the criticisms of
eastern Democrats. He regarded it as a
valuable safeguard to the miuority to re
fraic from voting. Ho turned his atten
tion to the recent boud issue, und read a
letter from the secretary of tbe treasury,
that from Feb. 1 to Feb. 10 over S18,O0O,00J
of gold bud been paid out iu redeeming
notes. He said this disclosed that the
men who gave gold to thu treasury by buy
ing bonds first drew the gold out of the
treasury. The present indication was
that the gold reserve was being depleted
to compel another issue or bonds. West
ern Republicans should be as independent
as eastern Democrats. They should voice
the sentiment of the west and give the
people more money.
"When," said Mr. Bryan, addressing
the Republican side, "will you ever give
the people more money?"
Mr. Walker of Massachusetts Never.
Mr. Bryan Yes; the geutlemau will
never give the people the monev they
Mr. Walker I said never fiat money.

house committee on invalid pensions today
over tbe proposal of Mr. Pickler that the

Resolution to Iuvestijrate tlie Cir

Trouble for Railway
dy, Brewer ct
al. on List.
Washington, Feb. 27. Resolutions
were preseuted to tbe bouse this afternoou
by Mr. Somers of Wiscousin, to investi
gate tbe aciion of several United States
judges who have issued injunctions iu
railroad cases, the most prominent among
them being Justice Brewer of the supreme
court. They include also United States
District Judge Taft, Judge Ricks of Ohio,
Judge Pardee of Texax, Judge Beatty of
Idaho aud Judge Dundy of Nebraska.
Representative Somers says, concerning
"I represent the district in which
Judge Jenkins lives. The judiciary com
mittee is awaiting an opportunity to pre
sent, a favorable report oh the resolution
to investigate the action of Judg Jenkins
in eujoiniua railroad employes, My reso
lutions seek to broaden that investigation
so that it will show whit other judges
have decided. 1 have had no consultation
with Judge Jenkins, but it has seemed
unfair that he should bj singled out tor
investigation, when other judges have
made similar decisions. The investigation
may discioaa that the decisions have
gone too far, iu which case it may be
uecissary to modify the law. Thi
resolutions will releive the luvestignt.ou of
all political significance, as Mr. Jenkins
is a Democrat aud tbe judges named in
my resolutions are Republicans. I hope
to have tbe judiciary committed of the
house consolidate the investigation1!."
The title of the resolution to investigate
the actiou of Judge Brewer is "to investi-theclrcuin-tauces
attendiaz the decision
before United States Judge Kane in the
United States circuit court of the Dis
trict of Colorado."
The resolution specifies that a report
shall be made to the house whetht r iu
any of said matters or things the Hon.
David J. Brewer, judge of said court,
exceeded his iuri-diction, abused tbe
powers or process of said court or oppress
ively exercised tho same, or used his office
as judge to intimidate or wronufully
restraiu the employes of any railroad or
the officers of labor orgamzttlons."
The other investigations requested are
tho action of Judge William H. Taft of
the circuit court of the uortberji district
of Ohio, iu issuing injunctions iu the case
of the Toledo, Ann Arbor and North
Michigan railroad against the employes of
the company; the action of Judgu Dundy
of Nebruska, in the case of Oliver Ame
and others auaiust the Union Pacific road
on Jau. 27, lb!M; the action of Judge James
II. Beatty, iu tbe case of theCoeurd'Alene
Mining company against the miners union
of Warduer, Idaho, July 11, lb'JZ; tbe actiou
of Judge D. A. Pardee of the circuit court
of the northern district of Texas, in April,
1SSG. iu the matter of Biggin et al., aud of
Judge Augustus Ricks of Ohio, iu the
Auu Arbor case.
These casus all involve the right of
laboring men to -.trlke, and the drcistoiis
which are called iu question extend over a
term of yeurs.
OMAHA, Feb. 27. Wheu Judge Dundy
was informed of the resolution intro iuced
in the bousn of representatives by Repre
sentative Somers of Wiscousiou, he said
that he regarded it as a very good joke,
but not of much account if taken seriously.
Iu his opinion there could be bo ground
for an investigation of the actions of .my
United States judge who had attended to
such business us had bsen brought before
him according to his judgment. .Indue
Dundy was of the opinion that Mr. Somers
conld bud enough to occupy bis attention
in Wisconsin without looking after affair
iu ibis ptrtof the couutry.
Cleveland, O., Feb. 27. Judge Ricks,
speakiug of tbe resolution introduced m
the house today to investigate the conduct
of himself and several other United States
judges said that he presumed the resolu
tion referred to his decision in the Ann
Arbor railroad case. He did not care- to
talk about that matter for publication
until be hud seen the formal charges.
