Final Yolo on the Silver
Many Amendments to the
Wolcott of Colorado Makes 'His
Maiden Speech, Helnjr Very
lly tlic As-.oelated Tress.
Washington, June 17. The Silver
bill was again taken up in tlio Senate
tins morning. ,
Mr. Wolcott said that when the Senators
mIio lived in the silver producing States
w ero accused of holding sordid and un-
wortliv and unpatriotic opinions, and
when it was said those who were de
manding that silver lo restored to its
old place with its sister metal, wero
speculators and adventurers and were
indifferent to the true welfare of the
eoimtry, he would have to be paidoneil
for feeling he had n right to claim tho
attention of tho Senate long enough to
protest against such intimations ami
against such a method of conducting de
bate. If it were truo, (as it was not)
that the people of the silver producing
States were goverened in tho matter py
a desire to protect the industry on
which their property depended, a largo
warrant was given to them for such a
course by some of the Eastern States.
The country, particularly tho northern
States, seemed to have fallen on days
when politics wero rated nt commercial
value alone and when political fealty
was made to depend upon whether the
prosperity of a locality where tlio voter
resided was to bo better fostered by
competition with other countries or by
large and prohibitory duties which
practically excluded foreign competition.
Tho property of the people of the moun
tain States of the West had ever to rest
chiefly on the products of their mines;
yet while they wero less benefitted than
any other region of the country by high
protective tariff they wero asked every
session to stand by the duties which the
East formulated, and when they asked
that silver should also be protected they
wero told they were sordid and un
patriotic and that their ideas were those
of diisntislled and visionary people.
Mr. Wolcott went on to criticize tho
unfriendly attitude of tho administra
tion toward the silver question and said
that when Harrison was nominated his
record was searched in vain for any
noteworthy actions, saying that tho Re
publican leaders of the" West made great
efforts among the farmers and miners
and secured tho success of the ticket
and that the President had not exactly
iuatcriali7cd on the silver question and
that their awakening had been rather
rude. He ventured tho opinion that if
the President's opinion on that question
had been announced before the last
election, not a single Stato west of the
Missouri river would have given a Re
publican majority. Not because n ma
jority of the jeoplo of those States were
true and staunch and earnest Republi
cans but becnuso they would have
wNhed to rebuke overwhelmingly that
man selected as their standard bearer,
one who was unmindful of tho interests
of the country and disregardful of .the
will of a great majority of tho members
of his party. An open foo was to be
preferred to a secret enemy. The recom
mendation ot the Secretary of theTreas
ury struck viciously at the interests of
The act of 1878 was infinitely prefera
ble to the bill recommended oy tho
Secretary. The whole purpose of the
Hone bill seemed to be to degrade and
dcb-iso silver; to make it a commodity;
to ruduco it to one of tho baser metals,
ami to prevent its again taking its place
as a standard of value. In conclusion
Mr. Wolcott said the silver was of far
greater importance than tho election bill
or tariff bill.
The conclusion of .Mr.Wolcott's maiden
speech in tho Senate was attended with
great applause and compliments from
Mr. Mitchell addressed tho Sonato on
the general merits of Mr. Woleott's
speech and in the course of his remarks
declared that anv administration which
would set itself up against tho free
and unlinited coinage of the silver dollar
would be as it deserved to be, hurled
Tlio Senate then voted on tho follow
ing amendments reiwrted by theFinnnco
committee: To strike out from tho
House silver bill the provision that
treasury notes issued for silver "shall bo
legal tender in payment of nil debts,
public and private." Rejected ; yeas 14,
A second amendment to tho bill, strik
ing out the bullion redemption clause
was agreed to ; yeas 57, nays 7.
A third amendment, striking out the
Hh section, providing for free coinago of
silver when the market price reaches
$1 for ;71V grains of pure silver, was
rejected; yeas ltl, nnys 4(. An amend
ment fixing the limitation of the net

The Senate then went into a commit
tee of the whole on the bill previous to
its II nal passage.
Mr. Plumb moved to add a new sec
tion to come in as section two as follows;
"That tho previsions of the sec
tion of this act to authorize
the coinago of a standard silver
dollar, and to restrict its legal tender
character, which liectinie a law Feb
ruary us, I87H, is nerony inauo nppnui

vides for." Agreed to without division.
Rcagiiii offered tlio following amend
ment ns n substitute .for sections 3, 4
and 5. Section 3; That certificates
provided for in this act shall bo of the
denominations of not less than one nor
more than ono hundred dollars, and
such certificates he redeemable in coin
of standard value. A sufficient sum to
carry out the provisions of this net is
hereby appropriated out of any money

in tho Treasury not otherwise appropri
ated. Tho provision in section 1 of the act
of February 28, 1878, which requires the
Secretary of the Treasury to purchase at
the market prieo not less than two nor
more than four million dollars worth of
silver bullion per month is hereby re
pealed." On motion of Mr. Plumb the follow
ing substitute for the first section of the
House bill was adopted. Yeas, 43;
nays, 24 : The substitute provides that
from and nfter the date of the passage of
this act the unit of value in tho United
States shall bo (1, and tho same may
bo coined of 412) grains of standard
silver, or 25 8-10 grains of standard gold,
and haid coins shall bo legal tender for
all debts, public or private ; that any
other owner of silver or gold bullion
may deposit the samo nt any mint to
be formed into standard dollars or bars
for his benefit and without chnrge, but
it shall be lawful to rcfuso any deposit
of less value than $100.
Mr. Edmunds hero arose and said :
"Without interferring with the line
symposium wo nre having I wish to say
1 am opposed to tho bill as it now stands
and to every one of its amendments in
general and in particular, and therefore
that I nm not to be called upon here
after to account for having allowed an
amendment to pass without calling for
the yens and nays. I nm willing to
deliver over to tho Democratic party the
management of tho finances of the
country for the time being. I onlv state
tliis in order that I may not trouble the
Senate with demanding tho yeas and
nays on the various amendments that
are being given to this hoodlum bill."
MK Plumb retorted sharply asking
what Mr. Eumunils is going to uo with
tho Republican platform and intimated
that Mr. Edmunds does not represent
tlio Republican party.
Mr. Edmunds replied that he stands
by the Republican party plat
form but that the Democrats
and their deluded followers have
abandoned tho platform and transformed
it into one which no Democratic conven
tion ever dared propose because thov
knew tho people of tho United States'

Mr. Edmunds said the Democratic
warty being in a majority in the House
in 1877 or 1878 did pass a contrivance of
this kind (just as it is trying to pass it
now) in order, by appeals to tho worst
instincts of the people, to do something
which might bring it into power. It ac
complished its purposo nnd Cleveland
was elected, and having been elected by
their votes Cleveland was wise enough
nnd brave enough to tell his Democratic
supporters that that sort of delusion
could not bo carried into prnctice. The
Democratic party was wiso enough, for
a wonder, to lie absolutely silent for
four years on that topic. No patrol
opened his mouth to bark at the admin
istration of President Cleveland because
lie persisted and steadily declined to be
betrayed or seduced into destroying
property of the people of the United
States by advising such a meas
ure as " this wo have now.
No Democrat in cither house,
during tho four years of Cleveland's
administration opened his lips to re
lieve tho suffering people, suffering from
want of coinage of silver dollars, and
therefore I say with great respect to my
friend from Kansas and to everybody
else that this bill is a new platform (re
newed from 1878 to 1890) of the Demo
cratic party when it has no responsi
bility, (and I agree that it ought never
to have any) and that its purpose is to
entangle the Republican party and de
liver it over to the Democratic party."
The question was taken on Regan's

as a new section: "That certificates

After long discussion Mr. Teller's
amendment was modified (at the sug
gestion of Mr. Eustis) by adding the
words "and all silver certificates already

agreed to. Yeas, 34 ; nays, 22.

Comes in First.
Greatest Mile and a Quarter
Race Ever Run.
The Record Broken Largest Crowd
Ever Upon a- Race. Track in
America A Good Stayer.
By the Associated Press.)
Nkw York, June 17. Tho most re
markable field of race horses that ever
contested in a race in New York, and
the most remarknblo crowd that ever
went out of New York to see such
races, met at Sheepshead Bay track today
to see the suburban.
Fifty thousand peoplo were present
long before tho hour for the races began
and six hours before the great race was
to bo run off the crowd began to
leave New York. The sun kept out
of sight and so tho crush, which would
otherwise have been stifling, was not so
severely felt. All these thousands had
come down chiefly to see ono race, the
Suburban, u mile and a quarter run.
When tho bugle called the horses to
the post, Cassius was first to appear
with Salvator next and the others strag
gled in from all points. At tho parade
before tho grand stand Salvator held the
post of honor nnd the others followed in
this line : Strideaway, Firenza, Monta
gue, Longstreet, Cassius, Tenny, Prince
Royal and Raceland.
After two breaks Caldwell flashed his
red flag. A mighty roar arose from the
immense throng as they came bounding
down passed the stand. Cassius was in
front and in the short distance had al
ready 'n lead of a length, Firenza was
running second and the others followed
in a close bunch.
Going around the first turn Cassius
still had a lead of a length from Long
street who was a head before
Strideaway, Firenza fourth, Prince Royal
fifth.Raceland sixth, Salvator seventh
nnd Montague last. Past the quarter
they went at a terrific pace with Cas
sius increasing his lead steadily while
Longstreet kept, second place from
Strideaway who kept his head in front
of Salvator with the white and blue of
Tenny away in tho rear. Now Garrison
began to move up with Tenny and ns
tho blue and white began to move
through the mass of other colors a great
shout went up from tho stand. Murphy
on Salvator heard it and sent Salvator
up in third place.
Going down the back stretch Cassius
increased the pace, and at one time had
a lead of four lengths. Longstreet still
held second place with a deathlike grip.
Salvator, with Haggin's yellow sleeves,
began to flnfch at a faster pace now, nnd
Anderson set the pace fourth with
Tennv. At the head of the stretch both
were close on to Cassius, the Bever
Hck stable candidate, who still held a
lead of three lengths, Salvator second,
only a neck in front of Strideaway, fol
lowed by Longstreet, Tenny, Uacelnnu
nnd tho others.
Now thoy wero all ranged out for a
race home. Inch by inch Salvator
crawled up on tho leading Cassius,
Garrison working desperately on Tenny,
but tho little horse couiu not get up.
Still Cassius holds his lead.
"Cassius wins," madly shouted thou
sands, as tho sixteenth pole was
"No. Salvator wins," shouted another
faction, and then the gallant chesnut,
under a desperate rush, draws away.
The wire is very near and Farol and
Murphy arc riding for all they know.
In the last jump Salvator gets
his head in front and wins by a
neck from Cassius while a length nnd a
halt away is Tonny half a length in
front of Strideaway fourth. Then came
Raceland, Firenza, Prince Royal, Mon

Swayne, colored, an ex-member of the
Louisina legislature, was lynched at
East Feliciana yestenlay.Hc was arrested
charged with being a dnngercus and
suspicious character, when he was taken
from the officers by a mob and hanged.
Swayne was distributing circulars
to negroes in the parish, advising them
not to take part in the election for State

was purely a Democratic factional light.

citizens of East Feleciana sent a letter
to a member of the Louisiana lottery
warning him against attempting to send
eminisarics to that section to influence
votes for the lottery, and it is alleged
Swayno was on a mission of that sort.
LETTER FROM BLAINE
DKFININO HIS POSITION ON THE
Thinks the Law Should lie So Constructed
a to Provide for Reciprocal Trade In
Exchange for Free Sugar.
Auoubta, Me., June 17. A letter from
Secretary Blaine to ex-Mayor Cony
"You are in error in supposing I am
opposed to sugar being admitted free of
duty. My objection is not to free
sugar but to the proposed method of
making it free. If in tho end; by tho
tariff bill sugar is placed on the free list,
we give to certain countries a free mar
ket for $95,000,000 of their products,
while they are not asked to open their
markets to the free admission of a single
dollar of American products.
"We ought to have in exchange for
frco sugar in certain countries a free
innrket for breadstuff's and provisions
besides various fabrics from all parts of
our country. In short, we ought
to secure in return for free
sugar a markfit for $60,000,000 or
70,000,0000 worth of our products.
It will not require a treaty to secure
this great boon. The tariff bill can con

have given the countries south of us
free admission for nearly sixty million
dollars worth of their products without
receiving any advantage in exchange.
If sugar oo now made unconditionally
free we Bhall have given to the Latin-
American countries frco admission for
$150,000,000 of their products. It is
time, I think, to look out for some re
ciprocal advantage. We are a very rich
nation, but not rich enough to trade on
an unequal basis."

vanced that their patrons consist of
those in the higher walks of life,
should be a still further incentive to put
an end to the exhibitions alluded to. in
order that their example may not affect
those in the lo werwalks of life ; as it is, it
is now an evil and shame producing no
good or benefit and only indulged in as
mere speculation by those who pursue
prize fighting as a means of subsistence

No lloilles Yet Rescued from the Mines
DoNiiAB.Pa., June 17. All hope of re
covering tho imprisoned miners alive
has been abandoned.
Efforts were made again this morning
to enter the burning slope through the
Mahoney and Ferguson mines. It was
found impossible to get near the men
through the former, owing to tho forma
tion of the slope. In the Ferguson pit
the air was so bad that it proved im
jwssible to travel any distance.
It has been determined to cut off all
fresh air and let tho mine burn itself
out in order that the bodies of the men
may be recovered.
Early this morning, Martin Murkey,
Sit boss of the Anchor mines, made a
aring ottetnpt to reach the riirht drift
of the Farm mines. He crawled over
drifts and fallen slate within one hun
dred yards of the fatal chambers, and
sounuea again anu again, but listened
for a response in vain.
The columns of smoke grew thicker
hour by hour, indicating that coal is
burning instead of the timber and roof
ing. At 0 p. m. smoke was issuing more
thickly from the south wing than ever
but the rescuers were hard at work in
Mahoning mine and hope is still enter
tained that the imprisoned men or some
of them may bo alive in the rear cham
MAJOR KIMUALL ON TRIAL.
He Interposes an Objection to the Intro
duction of Testimony.
TvcbOK, Juno 17. The trial by court
martial of Major A. S. Kimball, U. S. A.
chief quartermaster of the Department
of Arizona, on the charge of negligence
in the execution of a lease for the officers
at Tucson commenced today. After the
first witness was sworn Major Kimball
interposed an objection to the introduc
tion of any testimony tending to show
that rentals under the leases in question
were exorbitant or that diligence was not
used by him to satisfy himself
that the amount of rent to be
paid by the United States government
was reasonable and proper, or that the
government was wrongfully required to
pay and did pay under said leases any
rentals whatever. Major Kimball made
this objection on the ground that it is
not the duty of the Chief Quartermaster
of the department to provide offices.
Major Kimball asserted that it is the
duty of the commanding officer and the
quartermaster present at a station to
provide the necessary quarters and
offices, and that the chief quartermaster
is nowhere recognized as having any
duty whatever inconnection therewith.
Captain Miltimore was the local
quartermaster at Tucson and it was
his duty to provide offices for all
disbursing officers stationed there.
Captain Miltimore did perform this
duty and afterwards submitted the
leases to the Chief .Quatermaster to be
signed as required by regulation. The
courtinnrti.il adjourned until tomorrow
without taking action on Major Kim

Frank .Tames' Advice to Riders.
(St. Louis Globe-Democrat.1
When a man rides along the streets
on horseback, with his feet crowded into
the stirrups of the saddle until the front
of the heel is caught by the bottom of
the stiarup, people arc apt to look at
him and say he does not know how to
ride. They will declare that the proper
style is to rest the ball of the foot on the
stirrup with the toes turned inward.
That is English, you know, but it is not
the style which cowboys, or long dis
tance ridera, carry themselves. I can
give as my authority for this latter
statement Frank James, who, in a
rather adventurous career, certainly did
some long and hard riding. We were
talking about the proper sent of an
equestrian while he was on trial at
Gallatin several years ago, and he said :
"I have no doubt that the English
seat is all right for park purposes, but
should you ever desire to put lorty miles
between yourself nnd a given point be
fore sun up next morning you will find
it best lo puhh your feet into the stirrups
ns thev will go, sit back into the saddle
in such a way that your feet nre braced
against the stirrups, which will be
pushed forward, nnd then let her go."
I have never had occasion to ride forty
miles before sun up, but I am perfectly
willing to nccept Mr. James' statement,
ns it is no doubt founded on experience.

Last winter, nt a time when an un
usually severe cold snap had extended
as far south as the Gulf States, where
a heavy frost was reported, he sent a
dispatch to say that his plantation had
not been injured by the cold.
It happened that during the cold
weather his partner had taken a long
sleigh ride, in the course of which' he
had the misfortune to freeze his face
slightly. The dispatches, which were
exchanged, read as follows:
"I have 15,000 pineapples and the
frost has not touched one."
The reply was, "I have only one nose,
and the frost hns nipped that."
