Wanhlngton, IVb. IS Hy a bold parili
mentary move the sliver men of the sen
nte, under the leadership of Senator .lone,
of Arkansas, forced nslde all other pend
ing business, including appropriation 1)111",
and by n vote of 30 lo 27, mado the hill for
the unrestricted lolnngc of Fllver tinllnMi
ed business before the senate Having
succeeded In this Mr. Jones gave notice
that the silver bill would be kept before
the senate unlit a llnnl vole was secured
before ndoiirnhient to-morrow. Prom the
strength shown by the silver men on the
vote to-day, there was little doubt of Mr.
Jones' ability to secure the vole to-morrow,
unless obstructive tactics or a test of
physical endurance are Inaugurated, which
is icirarded as unlikely. The move of Hi'
sliver men came ns (he climax of an in
citing day In the senate. Por two hours
at the opening of the se.lon there was a
tenewnl of the attack and defense, the
charge, ami countercharge, concerning the
course of the president and secretary of
the treasury In negotiating tho recent bond
contract with foreign bankers. The two
notable specrhcH of the day were made by
Mr. Oiay, of Delaware, who lelatlons
with the administration ore such that hli
utteiances In definse of the president and
secretnty were regarded as ictlectlng the
attitude of th executive launch; and by
Mr. Sherman, whose llnniiclal views an;
always received with marked attention.
Mr. Shel man's criticisms of the bond
contract weie none tho less severe because
of the calm and linpasslonatc manner In
which he set forth what he tetmed "Its
hard and Impolitic" features and tho "ex.
tussive" rate of Interest allowed on thirty
M-ar bonds, .Mr. Sherman declared that
110 bonds should ho isssued except to be
taken bj Hit people of the Putted Slates
and he asserted the .ibiiudaut ability or
Americans to turnlsh all the gold neces
sary. The Ohio senator did not, iiowever,
ipiestlon the president' position In ravor
or gold payments, but presented the facts
of all bonds Isued since 1 (,'), shun lug that
the government had always received gold
for Its bonds, and was bound by common
honesty to pay in gold for them, Tho
agricultural appropriation hill was finally
Tho senate was a center of Interest to
day as a lesult of the warm discussion of
the flunnclal question and the personal cilt
iclsms of the piesldent on Sntiuday. Mr.
Vll.it. (Pern, Wis.) had a toll or innnu
sorlpt and a pile of books before him,
leiidy to take iiji the llnniiclal debate
where it was left ofr at the pievlous ses

authority to buv gold i oln in prereiejico

The contract for tho construction of the
supeistrticture of the new cilMoius house
was awarded vettcnlny at Washington lo
the Diignn Cut Stone Comimny, of Ibis
clly, for ".l7,'i7i.niid the proper paier hove
lieen mailed to this city for sign iture. The
entlous delay which has called forth
protests rrom business men Is lio.v at nil
end and It Is given out that within Hie
next thirty dnH there will bo a large force
at wotk on the building.
The Impoitnnce of this work at the pres
ent time will be fully understood from the
r.ict that a -ery large amount of money
will hu paltl out for labor In the construc
tion or the building. It Is understood Hint
the granite to be used will lie cut here,
whli li Is a very considerable Item In li
st If. It being estimated that nearly SlOfl.QOO
villi be si-iit In diessitiK the stone. Tlie
m iterlal to l used Is the Llano, Tex ,
granite, which Is declined to bo a superior
quality or stone.
The fact lb.it there Is now a proiieet of
a speedy resumption of work on the build

IKople of the city, who had to protest long

The following special dispatch was re
ceived last night by the Journal from
Washington, Peb. IS. (Special.) The con
tract for the election of tlie superstructure
of the government building at Knnas City
was awarded to-daj. lllds under the last
call from the depaitment were opened on
tho iixh of last Deccmbci.and It has taken
all tl.!s time to reach a conclusion about
who should bo given tho work and what
material should bo used. The bid of the
Pugan Cut Stone Company, of Kansas
City, using J.lano, Tex-, gray granite, for
JJ17.l(7ii, was accepted.
It may be obsetved In this coum ctlon that
the editorial In the Journal or Thiusd.iy
ri-renlng to the r.ict that public woik Is
being held up because of lack or funds
und a lack of bushioss principles on tin
pan of the administration to provide funds
to meet appropriations made, created soim -

and it Is also noilced Hint vs-ry cUry to

the Journal of Saturday covering a meeting

that some of Ihe olllt-lals of the depot tin. nt
