Washington, Jnn. 115. Tho talk on
the silver question increases in volume
Before congress met Tuesday there was
warm discussion all around. 131imd of
Missouri declared that ho intended to
bring in a freo coinage hill and that
every Democrat in congress would havo
to go on record in an aye and nay vote.
Ho said ho was not hero and neither
were other Democrats to represent tho
nolicv of this or that man or this or
that faction of tho party, but hero to
seek relief for tho peoplo -in financial
McKinney of Now Ilampsluro urged
that if a silver eoinago bill was passed
by this congress and presented to tho
president tho Democrats would loso
every congressional district in the east;
that the house would at tho ne.t session
bo Republican and that foico bill3 and
so foith would binely follow. Other
congressmen took up tho discussion and
it was metty warm. Tho silver men aro
plucking up coinage. Thoy feel that
thev have stieiiKth enough to get tho
measure up, and if so thoy declare they
can pass it by forty majority. They say
oven the Republicans would assist in
getting it up, with hopes of putting tho
Democrats in the hole.
Thero aro about 800 Republican sena
tors who would support n freo coinage
measuro, but then thero are senators ou
the Democratic side, liko Carlisle, who
would prefer to have tho whole matter
referred to a commission whoso duty it
would ostensibly bo to confer with
other nations on the bi-mctullic stand
ard. So thero is no telling whether tho
Democratic silver men could pass a bill
in tho senate oven with theso Republi
cans assisting them. Thero is somo talk
of tho Republicans and anti-silver men
resorting to the tactics of the Democrats
in defeating the forco bill, by not letting
it come up or talkiug it to death. This
is not at all piobablo as they would not
dare to avoid facing the issue.
Before tho committee on tho interstate
and foreign commerce Raynor of Mary
land asked that a sub-committeo of that
committee bo appointed to consider n
bill amending tho interstate commerce
law so as to permit drummers to carry
sample trunks under special l.ites. Tho
committeois very favorably impressed
with the bill and will doubtless report it
favorably to tho house. A sub-committeo
was at once formed to consider tho
measure. Tho signs aro that Judge Mc
Cormick will bo confirmed as judge of
tho circuit court of appeals. Tho light
against his confirmation is very vicious.
One of the charges against him is some
thing about accepting a honso and lot
from citizens of Graham and afterward
selling tho property. But tho opposition
to his confirmation will not avail any
thing, from present appearances.
Tho members of tho tobacco trust, who
weio lecently indicted in Texas, aro do
ing their best to secure letters from
Texans heio to tho attorney general of
Texas and tho district attorney whoro
the indictments wore found setting forth
that tho indicted parties aio all most
worthy citizens of Baltimore and North
Carolina and tho object, it seems, is to
cet the officers abovo mentioned to let
down tho indicted gentlemen as easy.as
possible. It is intimated that thoy
would bo willing to pay a fino under tho
indictment if tho whole thing would bo
dropped at that point.
The committee on coast defenses mado
a report indorsing a continuous appro
priation of about $131, 000,000 for coast
defenses. Senators Chilton of Texas and
Berry of Aransas on tho floor dissented
to such appropriation. Senator Chilton
said ho was opposed to it on two grounds.
Tho first becauso of tho sum asked and,
socond, becauso tho character of such
appropriation being continuous was
wrong in that it was legislating for future
Tho caso of Logan against tho United
States did not come up for argument as
