THE SILVER BILL.
It Remains With the Coinage
Speaker Reed's Position on the
He Deigns to Make an Explanation
of His Action.
The Friends of the "White Metal Appeal in
Vain From the Autocrat's Arbi
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Washington, June 21. —In the house
today, after tho reading and approval of
yesterday's journal, Bland moved to re
consider the vote by which the yeas and
nays were ordered upon McKinley's mo
tion to table his (Bland's) appeal from
the decision of the chair yesterday, de
clining to entertain his motion to take
the silver bill from the speaker's table.
He announced that he desired to with
draw his appeal, but McKinley insisted
on a vote ;so Bland's motion to recon
sider was put and defeated—oo to 120.
The roll was called on McKinley's mo
tion to table Bland's appeal. It pre
vailed—yeas, 140; nays, 45. All the free
coinage men except De Haven, who did
not vote, voted to table the appeal, as
well as the following Democrats: Buck
lew, Campbell, Dunphy, Fitch, Geissen
bainer, Lewis, McAdoo, Mutchler and
Tracey. A large number of Democrats
refused to vote.
The regular order being demanded,
Speaker Reed proceeded to state his po
sition on the mooted question and the
reference of the silver bill, which he
had referred to the committee on coin
age, weights and measures. He said
the rules required such bills to be refer
red, and a statement to that effect should
be put in the journal and record. The
statement was made and the house saw
fit not to permit it to become a part of
the journal. That left a somewhat
difficult question as to the status of the
bill. Individually the chair believed
that the refusal to record a fact, did not
obliterate the fact itself. The chair be
lieved that the senate amendment to
the silver bill come within the purview
of rule '20, which prescribes that any
amendment made by the senate to any
house bill, must be Considered
first by a committee of the whole.
The senate amendment to this bill
struck out the lirst section, substituting
another section containing no words of
appropriation, and proposing a different
line of action, to-wit: The purchasing
of silver bars and the coining of all sil
ver presented, instead of the purchase
of silver bullion. This and other sub
stitutions were plainly new propositions,
requiring consideration in committee of
the whole. Under these circumstances,
and in conformity with the rules, the
chair held that the bill had been re
ferred and was now referred to the com
mittee of coinage, weights and
gland, of Missouri, appealed from the
decision and proceeded to argue that the
appropriating clause in the original
house bill, and the bill as it came from
the senate, were similar in terms and
purpose, and that the hill was not sub
ject to reference to the committee of the
Perkins, of Kansas, said it was the
purpose not to secure free coinage, but
to force through a measure the presi
dent would be obliged to veto.
Henderson, of lowa, held up the ur
gent deficiency appropriation bill as an
instance of a bill which had taken the
same course as the silver bill in refer
Springer declared that the silver bill
was the only one subjected to this treat
ment. The Republicans, and their
speaker were dodging the silver ques
Crisp, of Georgia, said a discreditable
way bad been found under the rules, to
still the minority when that minority
bad become a majority. This was the
only opportunity to get a vote upon free
coinage. If the speaker was sustained
and the bill went to the coinage com
mittee, if it ever again came before the
bouse, it would come under a rule that
would keep it entirely within the control
of the gold men—who would alone be
recognized to more amendments.
Townsend, of Colorado, said he voted
as he had because he felt that it was his
duty to his people to endeavor to get
Morrow, of California, contended, in
opposition to the speaker's ruling, that
the bill was on the speaker's table, open
to the disposition of the hohse.
Hermann, of Oregon, said the silver
question was the issue of the election
held four weeks ago in his state. He
had agreed to support the Republican
state platform, declaring in favor of
free coinage. Those were Ins sailing
Bartine, of Nevada, said the represen
tatives of the silver-producing states
were mostly new members, not trained
parliamentarians, but he could read
plain English, and when the rules said a
bill must be considered in committee of
the whole, it did not mean that it was to
go to the coinage committee.
Fitch, of New York, said it was plain
that yesterday's proceeding was a vic
tory for free coinage. When it came to
that point lie would refuse longer to
combine with the Republicans and
vote to refer the bill to the prope» oom
Clunie, oi California, said there were
not three districts in the United States,
outside of the silver-producing states,
that would support such a proposition
as that contained in the amendment to
the bill. As for the coinage committee,
he would promise again that the bill
would be reported back at the earliest
possible moment. The committee was
not unfavorable to silver.
Connell, of Nebraska, said he could
not see why this should be regarded as
a political question. Some of the Demo
crats may be found voting against the
majority of their party ; why should not
the western Republicans show the same

Escheated Mormon Property to be
Devoted to Common Schools.
Washington, June 21.—1n the senate
today the house bill supplementary to
the act of March 22, 1882, in reference
to bigamy, was taken up. It provides
that all funds and property lately be
longing to the Mormon church shall be
devoted to the use and benefit of the
common schools of that territory.
Butler offered an amendment for de
voting the funds to the endowment of
institutions of learning in Utah, and for
that purpose turning them over to the
general board of education of the Church
of Jesus Christ or Latter Day Saints,
subject to regulations to be approved by
the president of the United States, and
not to be used in teaching or propagat
Edmunds, in charge of the bill, op
posed the amendment.
Voorhees interpolated that Edmunds
was in too great a hurry to get at the
results of litigation not yet concluded.
With that litigation still undecided in
the supreme court of the United States,
he thought this was not the proper time
to decide where the fruits of the litiga
tion should go.
Butler also argued that the proposed
legislation was premature.
Teller also favored delay. If the Mor
mon church could use the money for
proper and right purposes, the Mormon
church ought to have it. That was the
plain ethics of the matter.
Butler's amendment was defeated—
yeas, 9; nays, 24.
The nine affirmative votes were given
by Bates, Berry, Butler, Call, Coke,
Harris, Ransom, Teller and Vance. All
the negative votes but one (I'ayne's) were
given by Republicans.
There was no quorum, but Butler, in
view of the vote, withdrew his amend
Voorhees moved to postpone the bill
till the second Tuesday in December.
Edmunds opposed the motion. He
said the bill did not affect the property
at all until after the supreme court
should dispose of everybody's rights,
public and private.
Voorhees s motion was not agreed to
—yeas, 20; nays, 25. The bill was then
passed without division. There were
some formal amendments made to it,
which will require a conference.
Morrill moved to proceed to considera
tion of the senate bill to establish an ed
ucational fund, and apply the proceeds
of public lands and the receipts trorn cer
tain land grant railroad companies, to a
more complete endowment and support
of colleges for the advancement of sci
ence and industrial education.
After some objection it was taken up,
but soon went over without action.
Edmunds offered an amendment to
the sundry civil bill to pay to the widow
of Chief Justice Waite #8,750, equal to
the balance of his salary for one year,

What Mr. Blame Did Say About the
"Washington, June 21.—Referring to
the published stories concerning the
scene in the room of the committee on
appropriations the other day, a gentle
man who was present said tonight the
whole aflair was greatly misappre
hended. The discussion which took
place was not in relation to the general
schedules of the McKinley bill, but the
feature which Blame condemned was
that of giving a free market in the
United States to the products of the su
gar planters of the southern continent,
and not asking in return free markets
for the products of our own fanners,
where we can get them merely for the
asking. Blame Bays corn would not be

were open to our products.
