In the House Mr. Hixey "VVnnts the
Government to Be n, Farmer.
No man ever leforc came to the Senate
of the United States with eucIi credentials
as were presented yesterday by Senator
elect Money. He was appointed by the
governor to fdl the unexpired term if (he

sought to make the appointment he was
away from the capital and quarantined en
account of the yellow fever. "Writing to
his secretary for a blank commission, lie
wad sent one such as were used in the
apioit;tuu-ut or constables and that sort
of thing. It designated Air. Money to act
as Senator at the pleasure of the governor
or until his appointment was revoked.
This was clearly irregular and Mr. Money
and the governor decided that it was be
fore Mr. Money started for Washington,
bu thcgovertior thought the Senate would
know hit. intentions and let it stand.
Discussing the matter with a member of
the Committee nit Privileges and Elec
tions the otliei day that member told Mr.
Money that he could hardly be seated on
bucli ciedentials, but that he might on
the notoriety of his appointment.
So it happened that when the credentials
were laid before the .Senate yesterday Mr.
Chandler objected to them, on the grounds
oC theli irregularity, and he was sustained
by Mr. Hoar. Tne other side ot tuu rase
w taken by Senators WaltnallandTcIler.
and after a debate that was quite breezy,
but not very serHiii, Mr. Money was sworn
in, and given a seat on a Iwck row.
Then cart.t the usual flood yf petit ions,
bills and remlutloiih incident to the open

as would enable Congress to consider und

Mr. Lodge made an ineffectual endeavor
to have the immigration bill fixed as he

and not reissue them, except in case gold
is paid into the Treasury for greenbacks
and other circulatinguotes. In other words,
$30.6,000,000 ot greenbacks, when re
deemed in gold, must be. held In the
Treabury, thereby contracting the currency
to that amount, and these greenbacks be
ing reissued only on condition that a like
amount of gold be deposited for the green
backs reissued. In either case, .?34G,
000,000 in gold or greenbacks would be
locked up in the Treasury and permanently
out of circulation.
"Fortunately for the ctuutry, however,
the I'rcildent hestltates to put this scheme
in operation until the revenues received
by the Government are sufficient to pay
current expenditures, so that we may
be assured that under the Dinglcy bill
the I lesident's plain of retiring green
back r will be indefinitely postponed. Ills
recommendation that national banks be
perm tted to Issue notes at the par value
of bonds deposited ami tiiat Ue note-,
shall be made redeemable In gold will
not do. If It is a great strain and bur
den upon the Government to maintain
gold redemption for $310 dOO.OOOof green
backs, how can the banks possibly cb
taln gold to redeem their notes-.' If ail
the wealth and power of the Government
finds it hazardous to maintain geld re
demption, how could part of that wealth
invested in banking institutions procure
gold? Htinks would he forced to surrender
their notes and thus work disastrous con
traction of the currency. Sti tcLeme can
be devised tint is worse thnu this.
"It doe" not occur to the I'resldMit that
silver is redemption money, tne same as
gold, and that, our currency system can
be maintained on a bimetallic basis with
out ary forced contractions ot aur cur
rency The country, however, need take
no alarm, lor the Republican party find-
itself wholly unable to legislate upon the
currciicy question. The Republican party
in the House will not adopt the scheme
of the President, nor will they give at
tention to the plans of the Secretary ot
the Treasury. The program marked out by
Mr. Reed. Speaker ot the House, Is to do
nothing on the currency question. For
this, the country can he congratulated.
"No doubt this policy ot doing nothing
will In this session, au in the last, lie
religiously adhered to. The Democrats
warned the country In the last campaign
that the Republican party would do noth
ing for the relief of the people in their
financial afrnlrs. TliN warning is coming
to pasf. "We can assure the people, how
ever, that the outlook for Democratic re
lief is hright, and the time for it to come
ib fast approaching.
"Tile Tresldent's labored diesfrtailon
upon the necessity for currency reform.''
said Mr. Doekery, "disclosed the ever-'
present perils of a gold standard. He
adroitly attempts to conceal the efrect of
the recommendation that 'United States
notes redeemed in gold should not again
be paid out except In exchange for gold,'
although It is manifest that legislation "ou-
terring upon the Secretary ot the Treaaury
such power would result in impounding
the greenbacks and other Treasury obliga
tions, and thus still further contract the
volume or money In circulation. With the
limited amount or gold which conslitites
tho only money of redemption, the uov-
ernment must either retire the obligations
which call for gold or else now and then
borrow gold by increasing the interest-bearing
debt. With n Treasury deficiency
under the Dingley bill, amounting in four
months to nearly fifty millions ot dollars,
the menace of a bond issue to replenish
the gold reserve is imminent.
Tnc President ieeks to aold this danger
by a iccotumendatioit which in cj feet au
thorizes the Treasury Department to retire
a large part ofoiuiiaper money. The people
will not be deceived by t his recommendation
Its purpose is olrvioi.s; but the President 's
logical, if not frank, in desiring to retire
the Treasury obligations, which, by Treas
ury construe tion.are payable in goldaloue,
rather than to hire more gold by another
tond issue. The President's policy practi
cally retires the grenebacks while oon
inendiug the system of national banks. It
will be nisappnned by the people."
Discussing the message in general, Chimp
Clark, of Missouri, said, yesterday: The
President's, message will be a disappoint
ment to the country. The bulk of the
American people are heartily in favor ot
grantiugb"lllgerent rights to the struggling
Cubans immediately, aud of recognizing
their independence at no distant day, and
they will not take kindly to Mr. McKinley's
suggestion ot doing nothing to help th-j.n.
There are two reasons for this: First, be
cause tire love ot freedom Is thoroughly
ingrained in the American character; and
lastly, because the Cuban war is cautfag
great lossesto usin (c wayottrade.
"In the last campaign, Democrats every
where charged that the intention of the
single gold standard advocates was to
retire aud cancel the greenbacks. This
was denied vehemently by the Republicans.
Now comes the President, and by his mes
sage proves that we were right. His
recommendation as to greenbacks is a
thinly disguised proposition to retire them.
Nobody will be deceived as' to the real
"The vast majority ot the people are
opposed to extending and perpetuating the
national banking system, which the Presi
dent proposes. He suggests that their
privileges and opportunities for making
money be increased by 10 per cent, while
their taxes are to be reduced by one-half.
A tremendous revolution in public opinion
must take place or the Democrats will
win or that proposition.
"The scheme to popularize national banks,
by diminishing Hie amount of capital neces
sary to establish them in small towns,
would be a great thing for the Republican
gold standard party it It would work, but it
will not. The people are not deslrious ut
th-i gold gang having a recruting ta ion.
in every neighlvirhood.

The bladder was created for one pur

and as such it Is not liable to any form of
disease except by one of two ways. Tho

Unhealthy urine from unhealthy kid

It is comforting to know that Dr. Kilmer's
