jected to these "omnibus" schemes by
which twenty-nine public building
appiopriu'ion bills on tbe calendar
Tere taken np and passed yesterday

On motion ot Senator Call, tbe Sen
ate took up Senator EuMis's recent
reeolntioa calling on the Secretary of
the Treasury for information us to
''the refusal ot the Assistant Treaiurer
at New Orleans t receive shipments
of silver and to issue silver certificates
senator Call defended the action of
the TreasHty otlicial in the matter re
Senator Plumb said he bad been
told that Treasurer Jordan, being
fisted why he did not pay f ir silver
bullion in silver dollars, replied that
il he did so the holder would return
the dollars and demand certificates,
and he (Jordan) was not willing to en
courage that sort o! thing. He thought
this threw nineh light upon the per
formances of lint summer, when there
was an apparent tflort to circuhi'e the
silver dollar.", but there was at the
saaie tune au intrigue with New York
j erp'.e to burg the law into contempt.
Senstn- Coke said the question wa,
whether the Treasurer ha 1 technical
ly complied with the law, but in real
ity vio'u ed it. He had no titty for
those n l.o violated the law. He cared
not whether they were Kepuh'.icans or
Ii'tnocrata. For one he proposed to
brinpsny cMiecr who is guilty of vio
lating the law to the bar of public jus
tice and opinion. Banks in t-ialveeton
were attempting to establish a discount
on si'rer because they could not get
irtiti.-aies from ,tl:e Sub-Treasury a'.
Mew Urius, Senai or Coke contended
that the Treasury otlh-ia'a were oaten

At 2 o'clock Senator Coke being still

disciisioa that bi'.l was made the un-na-.M.ed

his remarks on the Knetis resolution.

senator Tellerfieverely commented
on the statement of tbe Treeident's
cnfftage.and the report) of ths Secre
tary of the Treasury and Comptroller
of the Currency to the effect that
$50,000,000 ot the silver dolhrswere
all that had been possible to get into
circula'ion, when in the same message
and reports they bad been compelled
ti admit that there were raally $140,
000,(M)0 of the silver dollars in circu
lation, because in addition to tbe $j0,
000.000 ti hietallic silver dollars out
there were J'J0,0C0,00O'uf ceit'ficates.
So much stress 1 a 1 lecn laid by the
President and bis officers cn the 00,
00O,0ix) figures that the people largely
got the idea that that represented the
whole silver circulation.
Senator George insisted that tbe ac
tion of the Treasury officials in the
case under consider t'on was in every
respect sound, and in compliance with
Senator Enstis said he bad tele
graphed to Mr. Kca;h at New Orleans
to aicertan the purpose of the bank
shipment ot silver. His rep'y, to-day
received, was as fallows.'
"Shippers sought to get rid of ex
cessive silver by shipping to Sub
Treasury and asking that silver certifi
cates therefor should be turned over
to their New Orleans correspondents.
Tbe Sub-Treasurer declined to receive
from express company because, first,
ha doubted the propriety of tbe
Treasury becoming au intermediary
between tbe country and city banks;
secoud, for lack of clerical force. I
feel assured that provisioi for suffi
cient clerks would remedy everything,
"T. T. ROACH."
Senator Kdmnnds inquired why the
adminir-tiation did not turn out this
Republican rascal and put in a Demo
crat who would understand bit duties
under tbe law.
Senator Coke la be a Republican?
Senator Kdinundn I do not know.
I suppose if be is ai bad as that he
Senator Ooke said be did not care
wbat the man's politics were.
Senator Kdraunds repeated his in
quiry as to tbe politicsoi the assiattnt
treasurer at New Orleanswhether be
was an oilioer or some new man ?
Senator Gibson replied that tbe offi
cer re tarred to ba l been appoint! by
tbe present administration.
"Well," remarked Mr. Edmunds, in
a regretful tone, "it is a very bad stats
of things." Uughter.l
The debate then closed and the mat
ter went over.
Senator Dolph submitted an amend
ment to Senator Sherman's silver bill,
which was ordered printed. In the
original bill it la provided that the
amount of coin certifies tie at any time
outstanding should not exceed the
co it of the bullion purchased by such
certificates. Senator Dolph's amend
ment is to ttrike out the words "the
cost ot the bullion purchased by such
certificates," and make the provision
read as follows: "Tbe amount of such
certificates at any time ouUtindinc
shall not exceed the market value of
the bullion In the Treasury purchased
under tbe provisions of this aril and
retaiuod as security f ir such certificates
and whenever at the end of any flsc.l
year such outstanding certificates shall
be in excess in amount of the
market value of such bullion, the Sec
retary of Ilia Treasury shall retire and
withhold from circulation an amount
of such cortilicstes received by the
United States for cuitoms, taxes and
public dues equal to such excess until
such time as the same can be put in
circulation without increasing tbe
amount of such cert tlcatee beyond
the matkot value of such bullion.'

Washington, February 10. A pro
tect was laid before the Senate in se
cret sesaion against tbe confirmation
of the collector of customs in Ver
mont. ' It is signed by people whom
the Vermont Senators regarded as
worthy of consideration. The grounds
cf their objection are that the collector

charge of a station on the Canada line

sand dollars worth of goods are an
r ually imported.', man who has been
three tlnos Indicted for irregularities
in connection with the customs and
who has compromised the affairs with

is said to have given rise to a short
but interesting debate.
