ate yestprd'iy afternoon Mr. Cooitrell,
pemocrut, of Missouri, returned hl
argument bogun Monday In opposition
to the silver repeal bill. He started
with the statement that any interna

ernments was nqw Impassible. After
Mr. Cockroll had spoko nearly two
hours, Mr. Allen of Nebraska, called
attention to the fact only eight sena
tors werq present and tho presiding
o'filcer directed that the roll bo callod.
Just o quorum responded and Mr.
Cockrell continued his speech.
Mr Cockrell read 'extensively from
reports of the international monetary
conference of 1807 to show tho part
taken by Senator Sherman, w ho, he
s5id, had, neyf,r boon uivon proper
credit for hf elllclent work In aid of
