THE BELATIOSS BETWEEN THE
PRESIDENT AXD SEXATE.
Sr. WilMrt Speech la Snport of
tbe Mjorltj Report Prcef4
lag is the lloast.
Wabhinotok, March 11. Souite
TheCbair laid bffore the Senate lttter
from tlie Secretary of tbe Treasury
tranemittinr, . in response to a recent
enate resolution, Information is to
the expenaoa incarred by tbe United
States in behalf of tbe Territory of
I' tali since the parsage of tbe act of
June 8, 1874; also, from the same
oflieer, in like response, transmitting
information of claims by government
workmen under the eight-hour law.
The papers were appropriately re
ferred. ' Among the petitions presented and
referred was one by Senator Jones of
Nevada, from tbelutional Bimetallic
Coinage Association, and as its subject
matter, he ra d, was of transcendent
importance to the induetries of the
coautrr, lie would ask . unanimous
concent to submit a few Observations
on it Unanimous consent having
been obtained, Senator - Jones au
dreneel tbe Senate on it. The memo
rial, he ftaid, showed in striking
light the disastrous cffscti on tbe silver
products c f the United States cf the
competition with India. The extraor
dinarily inpid development and ex
pansion of all the resources of India
since 1873, Senator Jones said, was
tbe direct result cf its use of silver
money, and, instead of that country
being I) eld np to us as a warning, it
should be taken as an example to
Senator Morrill asked Senator Jones
whetber the reason for the depression
of the wheat growth in Great Britain
was not that tbe importer of that
cereal conld buy Indian rupees for
one shilling and sixpence, and then
paw his rupees in India for two shil
lings. Senator Jones admitted that
that affected tbe price, bnt said the
reason why the rupee could be bought
t one shilling anil sixpence was that
the annuitants those who fixed in
comes desiring to increase the value
of tbe money which tbey received,
entered into a conspiracy to destroy
silver as money, to take away from
its principal use, to deny its royal riv
liege of roinnge, and in that way, from
1873 down, had succeeded in reducing
thernpee fiom two shillings to one
shilling and sixpence. For one hun
dred years, enatr Jones continued,
France alone had maintained the
parity of silver with sold on the iRlio of
l!))tol. If that relation existed to
day it would be utterly impossible for
the Indies to ship a hale of cotton to
the Western world. Let the United
States undo the wrong it did it 1873;
let it again coin silver. From the
large amount of paper money In the
world we all know that there was not
nearly enough silver to meet the
moneta-y wants of the world. Let
the Umled States coin: this would
put the rupee at two shillings, and it
would be impossible that Indian com
petition could allect the wheat grower,
wool grower or cotton p'antorof the
Senator Teller said the price cf
wheat in Liverpool during November
Im 1 been within half a cent a bushel
of the price in Chicago.
The chair suggested that the debate
was allowed only by unanimous on
sent, and objection being made, the
matter was mopped.
Senator Hawley, from the Commit
tee on Civil Service, reported adverse
ly btmator Vance's bill for tho repeal
of the Civil Service law. Senator

Inexperience, want of thoughtful ac
tion, or other cause whatsoever. It
was an unexpected f set, however, and
doubtleas it would have been guarded
against if the framers of the crnstitu
tion had believed such a result possi
ble in an administration of the execu
tive power under the provisions of
that instrument, as prepared by them.
Who conld have anticipated that from
the political protiplaatimio presence
which floated on the bosom of the
Democratic platform of 1884, and

In the words, "We favor honest

sult than we now attained or the citi
en expected. The first stage was
J?i 7 the "Prewlon of Mr.
Cleveland in accepting the nomine
tion of the National Democratic Con
yention. Senator Wilson read an ex
tract from Mr. Cleveland's letter cf
acceptance. Here, be continued, and
in his words, the ptotoplasmic Presi
dent which floated the pla'form
seemed to take in tome degree definite
ahape. The evolutionary process con
tinued its m3veuier.t, but its next
stage was not reached nntil Mr. Cleve

and Mr. Cleveland became President
cf the United States in tact and in
law. On that, to him, mighty occasion
he gave further utterance, an J told the
assembled people of the country that
the third stage of the rolltlcal evolu
tion had been reached. All that he
bad theretofore said had been bat tbe
ut-.e ranees nf Mr. Cleveland. Now bad
come the time for Mr. Cleveland, Presi
dent of the United States, to apeak,
and he did speak.
Mr. Wilson read tbe portion of Mr.
Cleveland's Inaugural address relating
to civil service reform.
This he continued, marked the offi
cial and highest stage of the political
evolutior, whose subtle forces bad
wrought wondrously well in elevat
ing Mr. Cleveland to the Presidency
of the United States. Bnt he bal no
parpose of abandoning the others in
that political school to which he pro
claimed to have committed his f ir
tnnes as candidate and President lie
was not content with tbe announce
ment of the 4th cf March, J 885, that
the otiicial and highest stage bf 'the
political evolution had been reached,
for he renewed the declaration in his
fimt annual message to Congress, and
took care to give it great elaboration,
lie seemed to have most earnestly de
tired to impress the country with the
belief that the indefinite protoplasmic
presence in the platform on which his
pariy placed him at Chicago, tad
evolved a substantial and forcelul
principle which would purify the
politics and bless the country in gee
eral. Here he read tbe President's
measage forwarding and comment
ing upon the Secretai y's report of tbe
Civil Service CcmmisFioo. The people,
Senator Wilson continued, had given
Mr. Cleveland generous credit for sin
cerity. Tbey had listened to his pro
fessions of reform and studied them.
They had appreciated the difficult oi
surrounding bis assumption of the ex
ecutive power, but tbey conld not
reconcile his actions in suspending
competent and faithful public o Ulcers
with his repeated asaurances tbatsuch
things would not be done, lie hud
said that men would net be discharged
for partisan reasons, but only for
cause. The people had believed that
he had the courage of bis convict one..
This resulted ia a universal belief that
charges other than political should be
lodged against a public cllicer bef jre
bis suspension could be assured. It
had logically followed that whenever
an olliuer was suspended tbe people
believed that some grave charge bad
been made against him. Indeed,
every suspended officer was, by the
President's own declaration, made to
stand before the country on unworthy
of trust and confidence. If this were
cot the necesnary conclusion, what
must be the estimation placed by the
people on the word of a President?
And if is be acorrect conclusion, what
must be the Presiden t 's idea of fair deal
ing with a citizen ? He had suspended
0411 public officers and marshaled
them befora the country as persons
unworthy of trust and confidence.
Many oi these persons had requested
to be informed of the nature of the
charges against tlium. In this way
the executive power was being used
as a means, of assault agiiutt the ,
character and reputation of citiz jriH of
the republic. Mo such outrage had
been inflicted on our citizens from the
first of our national existence nntil the
incoming of tho presnnt administra
tionits pomp and circumi'tance of
reform to the contrary, notwithstand
ing. It was a mot extraordinary
manifestation of reform for the Presi
dent to pi. ice himself before the coun
try as the accui er of (143 public officers
wtiom he had suspended, at the same
time denying to them information as
to the things of which they were ac
cused. Ifhssa'dto them, "You are
Republicans end I want your p'aces
in order that I may confer them on
DemocjfctB," he would have dealt
frankly with them, and would have
manifested a manliness which would
bae challenged respect. The Presi
dent had now asked the Senate tn
join him in his accusations against
these men. W hen the Senate requested
to be informed concerning the official
conduct r f the accused officers, it was
flatly told him that no information
would be given, and this regaidless of
the effect oa tbe citiaen. Senator Wil
son went on- to argue tliHt this was
not the theory of the constitution, and
was contrary to, both the theory and
iiiactico if the 20 vera men t from t.hn
beginning. He Bait! that the demand
of the Senate ns not unlawful or un
reafoaable. Grover Cleveland mnv
not suspend from cilice in his personal
die: retion. The President may do it
hi his official discretion. The outrnced
cit'zan who etood arraigned before
the country by the President as being
uuwortuyoi roniuionce must not in
quire concerning charges made against
mm, because tout wouiu he an en
croachment on tbe kingly prerogative
of the possessor of executive power,
and when the Senn'.o called for in
formation on tbe government files in
order that the cit'zsn may have fair
p'ay, common justice and opportunity
for defense, it is cool; v informed that
tha public interest would net be pro
moted by the giving of such
information. l Dustue kinsiv "prerog
ative" of the President placed under
lork and key the public records of the
country. If thia was "reform." Sen
ator Wilson thought the sooner we re
turned to the old methods the better.
Senator Wilson wu quite ready to ad
mit that tha President . repeated
assurance of reform had given away to
the pressure of partisan supporters
rainer man say teat tney were mean
lngless when uttered.
Senator Kent a obtained the floor to
speak on the resolutions.
Senator Stanford introduced suitable
resolutions regarding the death of
Senator Miller, which were adopted,
and attsr an executive session the
Senate adjourned. . 1 .
Mr. Sowden, Pa., from the Com
mittee on Expenditures in tbe Navy
Department, reported a resolution
which was adopted, calling on tbe
Secretary of the Navy for a statement
showing the amount of money ex
pended in the oidnance shop at the
Washington Navy-Yard the number

Mr. Hammond Ua from the Com

adversely the resolution directing that
committee to inquire into tbe right of
the United States to cancel natnnta for
inventions and discoveries. Laid on
the table. Mr. Parker N. Y. obtained
leave to file a minority report. The
minority report goes into an exhaus

volved in the proposition, and after
citing a number of cases in which the
United States took action to cancal

lOOBISSrONDSKOI OF TUI AFFkAL.I
Woodvillx, Tsnn., March 11. News
is received here to-day of a horrible
case of suicide at Tibbs, this county,
by taking morphine. Frank Jones
was the name of the unfortunate man.
He was milking from the village drug
store with a friend, and took in bis
presence twenty grains of morphine,
and told his companion good-bye, as
that would be the last time he
would see him, and commenced cry
ing. Ho went home and lived ft day.
Whipping, beating and other means
wore resorted to, but without effect.
Jones was a man of family, and about
fifty years old. No cause has buen as
signed. Farmers have sown more oats than
common, preparing for the scarcity of
feed in the summer. The season has
been favorable for sowing.
David M. Lanier, sr., is now carry
ing the mall between this place,
Btownsviile and Curve. He promises
to be a prompt and safe coutracior,
and is always on time.
UTha farmers, especially in this por
tion ol Haywood county, are applaud
ing Congressman Glass for his untiring
etlorta in their behalf. There is much
need of legislation for tha promotion
ol agriculture, and It is absolutely nec
essary lor the general welfare of the
country that the farming class Bhould
have defenders. The latest measure
introduced by Representative Glass ia
a bill requiring Consuls and commer
cial agents of the United States in for
eign countries to procure and transmit
to the Department of State authentic
commercial information respecting
such countries, of such character and
in such manner and form and at such
times as the department may from
time to time prescribe, etc. It also is
required that every consular officer
shall furnish to tha Secretary of tbe
.treasury toe prices current of all
articles of merchandise usually ex
ported to the United States from tbe
pott or place in which he is stationed.
The information shall be included in
the annual reports of the Commission
er of Avriculture. etc. The Commis
sioner of Agriculture has repotted fa
vorably on this bill, and it will no doubt
become a law. Tbe whole country is
benefited when the farmers are bene
fited. If the tillers of the coil are en
couraged and are prosperous a brisk
ness ia imparted to all other business.
The South needs more Representatives
who will work for its material welfare,
for the promotion of agiiculture and
the betterment of the condition of the

"I am thirty-five years old," writes
Mr. Charles II. Watts of West Somers,
Putnam county, N. Y., "and had suf

The current treatment did me no good.
Listlessly, and ithout hope, I gave
Parker's Tonic a trial. I can give tbe
result in three words Ucured mt," It

died in the collision wh'ch occurred
on the railroid between Monte Carlo
and Mentone yesterday. Twenty-six
of the paieengers were injured, thir
teen of them very dangerously. The
collision happened on a sharp curve
which tbe two trains, Ijpth filled with
passengers, tried to round at tbe tame
time on a single track. Tbe trains
were badly telescoped and were
thrown from fie track. The point
wbeie the collision occurred ia situ
ated on a cliff overlooking the sea, and
stoat 135 feet above the beach. Two
of the carriages which were thrown
fiotn tbe track atd fell down this cliff
rolled a considerable distance in the
shallow water at the base and im
bedded themselves in the sand.. Both
tbeso coaches were full of people, and
the wonder is that all were not killed.
The woonded have been conveyed to
hotels at Monte Carlo. Many of tbe
travelers were Americans and En

The bishop at Esquimaux Point has
