Senator Stanford Discusses
His Loan Bill.

This, however, in a few minutes was
laid aside to allow Senator Stanford to
address the Senate on his bill providing
fur loans by the Government on agricul
tural loans, lie said: "Wo can all
well understand tho great advantages to
the people at this time of the loan made
to tho National banks by tho Govern
ment of IK) per cent tion its own se

value becomes energized to the extent

advances), its jiosver is increased
to 00 percent. Its activity mayin course

So, too, this bill will have a corres
ponding energizing effect. Tho money
i.ued under it is not intended to accom
modate farmers alone, but as it comes
into circulation it will put the means of
prosperity within the reach of those
who are engaged in tho smaller nnd
larger industries of the country. This
money when if-sued by the government
becomes automatic. " It will contract
when there is less use for it, and ex
pand when there is greater demand.
Thus disntrous contraction will ceaso
to 1k possible. lie agreed that the rate
of interest propocd, two per cent, is
fixed for good reasons. No farmer
will borrow unless he needs more, and
when lie ceases to have use for it will
return it. Hut this will seldom occur,
for money borrowed of tho government
at 2 per cent, readily finds uso at higher
rates in other interests, and thus the
fanner will bo benefited. Six percent,
interest is a burden that the farmer
cauiiot bear, while owing to activities of
business the merchant finds it a reaon
a'le rate to pay. The value of money
i'cs in its activities. This plan of loan
ing money upon land at 2 per cent, with
the privilege to the liorrosver of return

moneyed system that will meet financial
expansion and contraction, as they may
occur, without inconvenience to iin'v
one. I'mler its provisions the real estat'e
oi the country, being so vast, there will :
a, ways be a jtossibimy of obtaining the
money necessary to carry on the enter
prists of the country, and when there is
no further use for money the liorrosver
Mop paying interest mid takes up tho
mortgage ujion his farm."
In conclusion tho Senator said: "Tho
lull, while not perfect, provides fairly
well for the machinery to carry out it's
d. '-igns. If adopted, with such amend
ments as shall seem wise to Congress, it
will largely increase tho prosperity
!' the humblest classes of labor nnd as--i-t

PKESIDENT 8 PAULDING
Ciiicago, May 23. President Spauld
ing of the Chicago League club, expressed
himself on the base ball situation again
today to a local paper. He dwelt on
the poor attendance at the games so far,
and sees no salvation for base ball ex
cept the withdrawal of all of the Player's
Lcaguo teams from tho field. The
League, lie says, is gojng to stick to tho
fight uncompromisingly and without
quarter. If the Player's League lasts
that 'the - average" a
League game so far exceeds that at thoso t
of tho Brotherhood. He predicts that if
it should rain at tho base ball points on
Decoration day the Player's Lcaguo svill
have hard work pulling through June.
Ho figures that tho monicd men who
went into tho scheme without knowing
what they were backing will have had
enough of the sport io last them for
life unless they recover some losses on
Decoration Day. Should it not rain on
that day, Spaulding thinks that a storm
on the 4th of July won Id lie disastrous.
Should it rain on either day and the at
tendance remain as at present, lie pre
dicts that the Player's League will never
open a second season.

Will Have to Suhmit to Death by
Washington, May 23. Tho United
States Supreme Court denied Jthc appli
cation for a writ of error in the case of
Kemmler, now under sentence of death
by electricity. The Court held that tho
change in the form of inflicting the
death penalty ss-as within the legitimate
sphere of the legislative posv.er of a State
Legislature. The State of Nesv York
determined that it did not inflict a cruel
or unusual punishment nnd its courts
have sustained that determination.
"This Court cannot see that a person
lias been deprived )f due process of lasv
in order to reverse the judgment. The
Court should be compelled to hold that
the Nesv York Court of Appeals had
committed error so gross as to deprive
theprisoncrof some constitutional right,
and the Court lias no hesitation in say
ing that it cannot do thia in the present
The case svill next come up before the
United States Circuit court, Judge Wal

stay until the Supreme court could pass
upon the questions involved. This or

tiint counsel would immediately apply
to the Supreme court for a svnt of
habeas corpus, their application for
which writ svas thrown out, but they
s-ent a hearing on application for a svnt
of error, and it svas this application
which svas to-day denied. It is there
