.howa that St touts is the natural center of

strongest point he makes la in regard to the
way the drafts most travel between Topeka
sad St Louis before the business can be trans
acted. SL Louts having the nub-treasury, the
drafts must go there, and the traveling they do
between the sob-treasury and Topeka is all su
perfluous. Glory for St Lfvats.

would rsem to him insnfflrieatv It
wu, taowi ver. justified ty the existing
financial strincrnry. On one thlmr. he said,
congress sod the people were agreed, and that
was that Nth gold and sllrer should be eon
tinned In use at money. Uonometallism. !pur
sad stmpte, had never (rained a foothold in Hie
United States, if senators wanted cheap
money and aa ad ranee in prices, free coinage
of silver was the way to do it; but they shoald
not call It bimetallism.
UK Sberman then proeeeded to dlsewm the
history of the act that bears his name, lie
not in faror of the free coinage of silver, and
regarded it as but another name for the moao
metalltrai of sUrer. and waa only In faror of
the purchase of sllrer for paiunsta ef eoinia-g.
The conferees of the two bouses agreed apoa
their differences, and in that agreement
secured the repeal of the Blaad-Akllsos
act. Mr. Sherman reminded senators when
they criticised the law that was named after
him. they should remember that this law bow
on the statute tooks was far better than either
the house Mil or that passed by the senate.
The president had. Mr. Sherman said, set
forth the decline In the value of sllrer. but
failed to gl re the causes of the decline. Had
he taken a broader view of the c
of that decline be could hare explained it slL
It was due. Mr. Sherman said, to the fact that
we were called upon to par our debts, debts
payaM In gold. England was the great cred
itor country, and we should neither be ashamed
of nor hale her; we are her children and par
take m ichor the characteristics of the parent

tions fr'm going down Fbrthe first time also
In a nuriber of years the balance of trade was
against us. and we bad to make the difference
good. fter discussing other matters contrib
uting to the present condition. Mr. Sherman
declared that an erroneous Impression had
been ere '.ted when It was claimed that the Sher
man lav was the cause of all the trouble.
and this, he said, with all due deference to
Mr. Cler .'land. Still the fact was that congress
must deal with a situation end not a measure.
Re telle red In "giving the devil his due." and
was read v to stand by the law. not as a meas
ure in wMch he took any special pride, for he
was compeled to yield In order to prevent
disastrous legislation. Without this law what
would th? country have done In 1891 and IH8S
had It boen called upon them to meet the
dlfflcultiet now staggering us. He was net a
new convert to the repeal of the law. hot a year
ago he had Introduced a bill to suspend the
operations of the law. It was worded almost
exactly like that of Mr. Voorhees. Why did
not the democratic senstors then see the dan
gers they now see. and come to fhe help of the
republicans when they sought to suspend the
law Not a democratic vote was bad then, and
democrats mast answer why.
This very currency famine was not through
feai that the money of the country was aot
gooii. and tbe people should not be deceived as
to tbe reasons (Or the repeal. Mr. Sherman
did aot believe the repeal of the law would tn
any considerable degree relieve the country
from the existing stagnation. Its repeal
would ease the money market from tbe
dreaded fear of the free coinage of
silver. The law was denounced ' by
the democratic party aa a miserable
makeshift. It waa a makeshift, and a good
one. It tended to pre vent the ill growing e-ut of
the free coinage of silver. The dsawecimtte
party was now charged with a great lesponsl
blllty and Mr. Saermao warned them that If
they attempted to alter the existing UrlA lawa
they would plunge the country into deeper dis
tress than now exists.
Taking It for granted aal the Sherman law
would be twpealed, what of the future Mc.
Sherman, while not the adviser of the emo-
cratic party, said he was entitled to give his
opinion as an American citizen. First of all
we must preserve intact the parity of all our
money. It might be necessary to issue our
securities to secure gold to maintain this
parity, the only way bf which we can sum
marilr secure gold.
At this point of his spoech Mr. Sherman de
viated from tbe direct path of his argument
reply to and clear away the charges and asper
sions made by senators and others in connection
with his so-called act dentoaetUiagailver in 1871.
and he confessed to some aaaoyaoee at
tbe statemant made tbe ether day by Mr.
Voorhees that the action of those who had
managed the legislation had been stealthy and
Mr. Voorhees declared that nothing coald be
farther from bis purpose and intention than to
say an unkind or d-isf-espectful word about the
senator from Ohio. That senator waa not tn
his mind when be uttered those words. But ss
they were disarTeeable or offensive to him, he
expressed regret at having uttered them, and
declared hlmse-f incapable of Inflicting aa af
ront unprovokel on any gentleman In the sen
ate or elsewhei a
Mr. Sherman said that certainly he did not
desire to say anything en the matter, being
satisfied that vhat the senator from Indiana
had said was dte to his exuberaot eloquence,
(Laughter He It. tended now to produce the
public record of the matter and make tbe art
of fff73 plain snd clear and to show that the
whole proceeding was free from corrupUoa,
and was hoaoraltto to congress, sad hereafter .he
said. In angry and excited tones. wbea any maa
lakes that imitation I will simply say that
it Is a falsebooi, and I brand it so now. There
has never been any bill freer from wrong in

was passed surreptitiously is a faliehood and
a lie by whotnet or uuered. . . -v
Mr. Shermaa devoted some time to an ex
posure of the falsehood of a letter written by
someone who rowed himself as an anarchist
and who professed to repeat a statement sup
posed to have teen made to him by Mr. Eraest

the best thing we can do now is to suspend, for
