In tho ITouse, tho debate on the Immigration
bills was opened by Mr. Hart hold t (Mo., R.),
Chairman of the Immigration Committee-. The
bills were four in number. One, known vnri
otibly as the Huitlioldt, McCall, or Lodge bill,
provided an educational test. It excluded all
male persons between 16 and GO years of ago
who could not read or write English or some
other language. Another, the Stone bill, pro
vided for tho inspection of immigrants by our
Consular olllccrs, and tlioir ccitificalion that

to sailors on the gjeat lakes.
Mr. Mahoney's bill, offered as a substitute,
was ruled out on a point of order.
Mr. Ilnrlholdt opened the debate iu favor of
bis bill. There was, ho thought, too much
passion and prejudice in the demand from cer

eigners. Good immigration, he urged, was de
sirable. His bill was a moderato measure for
the exclusion of illiterates. The percentage of

Wednesday, May 20.
In the Senate, tho pioposition made by Sena
tor Gorman to issue $100,000,000 3 per cent,
certificates redeemable in three years with
which to meet the excessively large appropria
tions m ado by this Congress was rejected. Tho
amendment was laid upon the table by a vote
of 42 yeas to nine nays. The latter votes were
cast by Senators Cockrell, Daniel, Gorman,
Gray, Hill, Mitchell (Wis.), Smith; and Vilas
Tho proposition was opposed by Senator
Mills, who said that there wcro well-regulalcd
methods to raise revenue without resorting to
this emergency gcheme, and also by Senator
Sherman, who was particularly vigorous in his
remarks. Ho said it was unexampled iu the
history of the country that such a proposition
should bo made in a time of peace to keep tho
Treasury from bankruptcy. It canio at a time
when tho country was amply able to provide
revonue for the Government.
"1 would tenr up every one of these appro
priation bills," said Senator Shei man in clos
ing, ' rather than issue $100,000,000 iu Treas
ury certificates in a single year."
Senator Gorman, in reply, said that in 1893
Senator Sherman had proj osed to issue $50,
000,000 iu certificates to meet an impending de
ficiency, but Senator Sherman denied that this
was the ca&c. as the loan was to secure a sink
ing fund. Mr. Gorman insisted that tho do
Jjcieucy was then a Teality. owing to tho pro
hibitive rates of tho McKinlcy law. Tho
failure of the income far feature of tho tariff
act and the too-liberal extension of the free
list had led to the piesent lack of revenue.
Tho direct appropriations and contracts author
ized this year would reach almost $000,000,000,
while the revenue would be far fcbort of that
amount. What was to bo done to meet this
deficiency ? asked Mr. Gorman.
The Fortifications bill was passed.
In the House, Congressman Walker (Mass.)
used vigorous language in protest against the
method of procedure. Ho criticised tho con
duct of tho 'Mb tee- or four gentlemen" who
"ruled with a rod of iron," aud charged the
leaders of tholiouBO with sneering contemptu
ously at tho Chairman of the War Claims Com
mittee when he bought lo have the Government
pay its honest debts. Mr. Mahon, the Chair
man of the latter committee, joined with Mr.
Walker iu the protest.
The ordor for to morrow directed that the
House should cousider tho Erdmau Arbitration
This would deprivo the Houeo of the oppor
tunity to cousider war claims to-morrow, tbo
day sot apart under the rules for the consider
ation of private bills, and Mr. Mahon pointed
out that his Committee on War Claims had been
given only one hour aud a half during the ses
sion of live mouths. Tho private business dur
ing tho session had been transacted by unani
mous consent. The calendars of the House
were untouched. Wlulo ho appreciated the
pressure on the Speaker for unanimous consent
legislation, Mr. Mahon wished to serve notice
that next bw-sioii tho "regular order" would bo
"Gentlemen," he concluded, looking around
the Houhc. "get what you enn during tho next
15 days. Unanimous consent wiil not be given
for any purpose at the next HCBsiou."
Mr. Henderson, of the Committee on Rule",
domed that thero wan any attempt to dictate
to the House, and Mr. Walker asked why the
leaders vtouid hiMbtujion adjourniug the House
over Saturday when bo many bills on the calen
dar were yet not acted upon. Mr. Henderson
replied that the House could not bo adjourucd
over Saturday unless a majority desired it.
When the Speakor was about to put tho ques
tion ou the adoption of tho ordor. Mr. Watson
(Ohio, n.)afkcd if the older would prevent the
giving of another day to pension bills.
"It wiil," shouted Mr. Tickler, before tbo
Speaker could reply.
"The gentleman from South Dakota says
'Yee' interposed theSpeakor, "but the Chair
Bays No.' "
Tho order was thou adopted and tho debate
on the Immigration bills was reuowed. The
liartholdt bill was passed.
Thursday, May 21.
In the Senate, the liivcr and Harbor con
ference report was taken up and recommitted.
Mr. Butler (N. CL, J'.) moved to lake up his
resolution to prohibit tho issue of interest
Mr. Hill was quickly on bis feet and was
about to speak, when Mr. Stewart (Nov., P.)
objected to any debute.
'I aBk unanimous consent to make a state
ment," said Mr. Hill.
" I object to any debate whatever," insisted
If r. Stewart.
"Then 1 move to adjourn." said Mr. Hill,
decisively. The motion was defeated.
Mr. Chandler moved an Executive session,
and a ycu-andnay voto was secured. It be
came evident that obstructive tactics would bo
resorted to in order to keep the bond prohibi
tion resolution from boing taken up.
All day long tbo Senators fought over tbo
matter, and finally adjourned.
In tho House, Mr. Kitkpalrick (Kan., 71.)
called up the bill to pension Francis E. Hoover
at tbo rate of $50 por mouth, which was re
turned with tho President's veto. The Presi
dent vetoed the bill on iho ground that thero
wusuo claim that tho present helpless condi
tion of the eoldier was duo to army Bervice.
Mt. Kirkpatrirk moved that the bill be passed
over tho veto, and said: "If Congress does not
pivc him relief ho will go to the poorhouec.
The committee can never assent to that as long
ss thoio is a dollar in tho Treasury."
Mr. Erdman (Pa.. D.) opposed the motion.

Mr. Loud (Cal., 15.) also opposed tho motion,

Mr. Willis (Del., I?.) concluded the debate
with a 10-miiiute speech in criticism of the
President's couro in vetoing private pension

Friday, May 22.
In the Senate, Mr. Butler (N. C. P.) renewed
his motion to proceed with tho bond prohibi
tion resolution, declining to accede to requests
from various Senators for routine business.
Mr. Hill had remained standing from the
time Mr. Butler made his first effort to pro
ceed, aud now tho New York Senator inter
posed tho objection that this was too impor
tant a Question to be considered "without a
quorum' This was tho first evidence of a
renewal of obstruction. m
Mr. Butler's motion was then put to a vote
without further obstruction, Mr. Hill demand
ing tbo yeas aud nays. They resulted yeas,
34 ; nays, 20.
Mr. Hiil secured the floor as soon as the voto
was announced, aud begau his speech in oppo
sition. He spoke calmly at first, gradually
warming up iu emphasis and feeling. "Tho
alleged crime of '73 will bo as nothing," said
Mr. Hill, "to the crime which will bo perpe
trated if this bill passes and becomes a law.
It is a bold proposition to repeal the resump
tion act to repeal the only law which exists
for tho redemption of the paper currency of
the country. By declaring that for no pur
pose whatever shall money bo raised on bouds,
this measure is in effect a icpcal of tho act
of '75. It is a startling proposition. It will
not solve tho silver question. It will simply
put in peril the finances of the country."
Tho debate was participated in by Senators
Sherman, George, and others. Mr. Gray said
he agreed with Senator Sherman that a crisis
in the history of the country and tho history
of the Senate was at hand. "I agrco that an
adjournment without measure of relief would
be an outrage and shame. And I say to the
Souator, if bis committee will propose a meas
uto to increase the revenue--a measure truly
non-partisan and solely to raise revenue that
ho witl find support on this side of the cham
ber. And I make that offer now with the
belief that sucb support will bo given."
Mr. Butler asked unanimous consent that a
final vole bo taken at 4 p. m. on Monday next.
Mr. Hill said he saw no objection. Mr. Chand
ler reserved the right to movo agreements.
This raised some complications, and Mr. Dubois
finally objected to the amendment, saying it
could bo arranged to-morrow.
Saturday. May 23.

Mr. Allen's speech on tho bill to prohibit tho
issue of bonds -without authority of Congress.
The Senate paused 40 private pension bills in
as many miiintcs without objection, thus clear
ing the Calendar.
In the House, Mr. Howard (Ala., P.) sprang a
rather short-lived sensation by rising to a
question of privilege and sending to tho
Clerk's desk a resolution to impeach President
Cleveland for high crimes and misdemeanor?.
Tho resolution recited various grounds of im
peachment, alleging that Pitsideut Cleveland
bad sold bonds without the authority of law at
less Hi nil their market value; that ho had re
fused to enforce tho anti-trust law and had
corrupted politics. When tho reading had
been completed Mr. Dingley, the floor leader
of tho majority, raised the question of con-

Dr. Pierce's Goldai Medical Discovery is
t medicine that permeates the whole body

going to the lungs. There is no need of

Purify the blood. It can be done. The

put the question to a voto. One or two mem

they were drowned out by tho great chorus of

entirely to the consideration of conference re

on Fort Sumter roused all the patriotism in his
nature, and he immediately enlisted April 10,

ho was appointed Lieutenant in the 10th U. S.
Ho secured a leaveof absence from tlio Regular

AN OLD-FASHION.ED, LARGE FAMILY OF THIRTEEN
XTom the Courier
A few years ago a wave of La Grippe
swept over the land and brought thousands
of its victims to the grave. Others who es
caped the fate lived on in sorrow and suffer
ing, broken in health and spirit.
Terrible as wa3 the disease, its after effects
were yet more appalling, as it sought ontthc
weaknesses of the constitution and left thou
sands shattered wrecks of their former selves.
A few days ngo a Courier-lTcrald represent
ative, while at the thriving; littlo town of
Akron, Mich., met John L. Smith, a veteran,
on whose aged head tho disease hnd 'fallen,
and he heard him tell how he had suffered
and what had given him relief.
Wc can do no better than quote ftis own
words, which are as follows: "Ahont seven
years ago I was taken down wi'li the ' Grip,'
and it fastened on me very hard. For about
half the winter I was so had that I could
not leave the house. I was chilly all the
time and could not get warm. 1 felt as if I
was frozen solid, and, could only breathe
witli great difficulty.
''This condition alternated with sweating
spells of great violence. There was an al
most continuous pain, and it would shoot
lroni one part of my body to another, with
great suddenness, and cause me intense suf
fering. Sometimes it was in my hips, then
in my legs, and again it would go to in-y
head and pain me in the eyes. It was so in
tense that it even affected my sight.
"I called in medical assistance, but this
was fruitless, as I received no benefit from
physicians. From then on I tried various
preparations that were recommended to me,
hut they did me no good, and my condition
was as bad aud painful as it was before I
"Finally, I saw an advertisement of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, and I
read with much interest of the wonderful
cures that they had effected in so many
cases. I had tried so many proprietary prep
arations that I had no f.iith iu it, hut tried
it, as I had so many other things, to ste if
they were of any use.
"One day when I was feeling as had a3
usual, I got a box of Pink Pills, and shortly
IWore going to bed I took one pill. I cannot
tell you what a surprised man I was next
morning. Then I put on my shoes with ease,
a thing that I had not done for forty j'ears.
A little while after this I was so well that I
drove to Hay City, Michigan, a distance of

when I got there.
" I am now seventy-six years of age, and
unusually active for a man of my years. I
work on my forty-acre farm and experience
no trouble from the work. 1 want to say a
good word for Pink Pills, as they helped me
where all else did no good whatever. Since
my illness and cure a number of my neigh
bors have used th2m,and say that they have
been greatly benefited."
Mrs. Smith, the veteran's wife, who gat
near b', confirmed the words that her hus
band had spoken and added her testimony
to the good that the pills had been to the
family. The worthy couple are old and re
spected residents of Tuscola County, where
they have lived for thirty years. Mr. Smith
i3 a sturdy pioneer, and cleared up a 200
acre farm near Akron. He yet lives there,
surrounded by twelve of his thirteen chil
dren. Thanks to Pink Pills, he has a pros
spect. of ninny years of usefulness.
Another sufferer with the same malady
was .Neil Raymond, a prosperous and lead
ing farmer, leid.ng near Columbiaville, La
peer C., Michigan. Speaking to a repre

mond s.iid : "Three years ago List June, one
night I suffered au attack of paralysis,
brought on, I think, by overwork and as an
after effect of la grippe. After a week my
condition was so had that I summoned a
physician and doctored fur abontsix months,
with but little relief. For some time I had
seen in the papers reported cures of cases
similar to mine effected by Dr. "Williams's
Pink Pills, aud thought I would try them.
I bought a box aud continued their use
with good results. I soon began to gain iu
strength and health, and felt the good effects
of the Pills.

quickly sprang up from every quarter. Un
mindlnl of the privations of a soldier's life,
and the horrors of war, they shouldered
their muskets and marched to the front to
do battle for their country.
Among the first to answer the call was E.
G. Matthews, who enlisted as a member of
Company D, 103d Ohio Infantry, and who
fonght bravely until the close of the great
struggle. Mr. Matthews now lives with his
wife and family of six children and grand
children on his farm near Akron, Tuscola
County, Michigan. While in the ranks he
contracted inflammatory rheumatism, and
this developed into a trouble that remained
with him for over thirty years. He finally
became cured of it, and to a representative
of The Courier-Herald he spoke of his case as
"During the late war I was a member of
Company D, lO.ld Ohio Infantry, and per
formed nil the duties incident to a soldier's
life from 1802 to IPCS. "While at the front,
owing to the privations of our soldier life, I
contracted inflammatory rheum itism, and
this finally developed into a permanent form
of rheumatism that has always troubled me
since that time. When
I was mustered out, iu
1SS3, I went back to
hid to the place where
enlisted and was laid

up there in bed for twelve weeks. I then
got out for a short time and was again laid
up for a long spell. Since then I have been
a victim of these attacks, and they have laid
me up for much of the lime.
"My case was also complicated by severe
kidney troubles and other diseases that baf
fled the best medical skill. I have tried
many physicians and also proprietary arti
cles of all kinds that were paid to be good
for such troubles as mrae. In my search for
health I spent hundreds of dollars, but it
seemed to be. all in vain, aud nothingseemed
to reach my trouble and ive me relief.
About a year ago a friend advised me to try
Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills, and although I
had no faith in them, I bought a box and
began to take them. After I had begun on
the third box a great change in my condition
began to appear, and my trouble for over
thirty years' standing began to be cured. I
took four boxes more and then felt so well
that I discontinued their use.
" I am now able to work on my farm and
have no fear of the old trouble coming back
as long as I can jet a box of PiukPilIs. My
case was a particularly deep seated one, of
long standing, and so'l want to let others
who are afllieted a3 I was know the benefit
that these Pink Pills for Pale People have
been to me."
