SENOTON, April 27.-The gen
bate upon the measure fra-med
Waj's and Means Com mit lee to

with Spain opened in the
day. It will continue through

wiii he taken. There was a
a'usejice of that partisan rancor
"?ra? ?.iwaya heretofore oharaet, r
[?ebaite? on Tevenue measures.
'sides, speaking uhrough their
e leaders, Oyiessrs. Dingley and
concurred in the necessity
existed for the immediate rais
,'ihrundrede of millions to prose
ie'war,'but the opposing doctrines
they held clashed at the first
>vex 'the methods by wtrkh the
-.should 'be xsulsed.
?reading of the bill occupied an
ten minutes. Mr. Dingley
'-^ook the floor to open the debate,
blil, he said, was distinctly a war
ire, forced upon the country by
jwar with Spain in which we were
jed. In war, he said, it was es
ial that we should stand us u unit,
raider to shoulder, us it was only
?ough such united action that hos
could be abbreviated and
lUght to an end at the earliest pos
Tnoment. Mr. Dingley called ut
m. to the vust cost of modern en
. ot war, which made war much
el','costly than formerly. This de
N&?|}pon the resources, ho said,
ie just as the country was emerg
rJrdm a long period of deficiencies
enue and was Just beginning t<>
jnnbu_.'_ti great ear
itness and was listened to with pro
id attention. Many of the Demo
left their places and took seats
"the Republican side in order to
.r the speaker. With greut Impres
iliess, Mr. Dingley said that unless
signs failed the war would not be a
". months' affair nor a six months'
iffair, and that the more preparations
? irnade, both for offense and defense,
shorter it would be.
"hen he reached the question of the

r>>' ??-?-..McMtllln. Mr. Sayers and
Democrats, aim uiti-c -win: some
'ussion as to the probable cost of
war. Mr. Sayers ventured tin estl
.te of $30,000.000 per annum, which
Dingley rejected, calling attention
he fact that the civil war cost
0,000,000 per annum. Mr. Dingley
toted out that the authorization of
rlOOO.OOO of bonds was simply an au
irization. If not needed all the
would not be Issued.
Dingiey briefly discussed the
proposition which the minority would
" ijy?nce for an income tax as a substi
for the bond_Proposition. TJieJ
' court ri?O?ecideA the" "tax '
. StiU?na>>and yet it was pro
d in place of an authorization to
irrow money to remand the govern?
ment to what would come out of a law
t which had already been decided
linst the government. "It seems
preposterous in such an emergen
" said Mr. Dingley. "thai I can
Btaardly believe such a proposition is to
Kibe seriously presented."
p.S, The proposition to coin the silver
pielgniorage he characterized as one of
K?the absurdities of finance which was
gaever heard of beyond the borders of
Ifthe United SUUes.
Mr. Bailey, the leader or the minori
?.ty, followed Mr. Dingley. He said
?that hia side realized as much as the
j&Bjfher the necessity of raising revenue
Sfo carry on the war and they stood
llready to co-operate In placlnir at the
Spiisposal of the government every ma
|5terlal aid for the prosecution of the
gjwar to a successful and speedy termi
liiation. But, said he. the minority
s-4wou1d not be either led or driven Into
'?the support of measures which com
mended themselves neither to their
?-conscience nor judgement.
?? Mr. Bailey criticized different fea?
tures of the bill. He declared that, hn
?perfect as it was, his side of the house
7;WOuld take It if the other side would
fgaccept their proposition for an Income
Si-tax, which would provide an addllion
V.al increase of $100.000,000. (Democratic
a:applause.) He thought the estimate
ilSpt. Mr. Dingley ($25.000.000 a month for
xSwqt expenses) a reasonable one and
g?ind said that if the income tax provis?
ion were made a part of the bill we
SSSvould not need to mortgage the fu
Ij'iure to fight a single battle of this un
SglSappy strife. Mr. Bailey also con
j&tended for the proposition to coin $4?.
S-OOO.OOO of the silver seigniorage, and to
guthat end he thought an issue of $58,
gj 000,000 of. legal tender notes could be
feiodded with propriety. The greenback
^circulation could be extended that fur
|24-The gentleman from Maine (Mr.
flilDingley) advocated the placing of a
fSbbnded debt upon this country of $<ioo.
S?OOO.OOO. Whenever the country's credit
Brought to be pledged he was willing to
yido this, but there was not. In his opin?
ion any necessity for mortgaging thai
credit at this time.
c-V "We propose." said Mr. Bailey, "to
'?v.tax the rich man now rather than to
^mortgage the energies of the poor man
'?tor corning generations." (Applause
Sgflh- the Democratic side.)
: .Discussing the question of the su
sVpreme court's decision on the income
? tax, he declared that no question was
?3.ever settled until it was settled right
gPfc He felt that the decision of ' the
court was wrong and for one he would
Spvave another case passed upon by
,. the court, in the belief that the court
" might reverse its decision. He made
'- this decision, he said, without in any
?fway reflecting upon the court. Mr.
If.Bailey then entered upon an extended
;? argument upon the constitutionality
M of an Income tax. combatting the the
Eory that it was a direct tax inhibited
.: by the legislation.
llpgSaie PopuKsts all are vigorously op
g.gOBed to the bond proposition. Mr. Dol
'??tiiivar, of Iowa,- in by far the most no?
il table speech of the day added to hi
?reputation .as a 'briltiani "orator. He as
,;. Bailed the position of the opposition in
-. the early portion of his speech, but Its
V;.:partisan flavor disappeared toward the
