Rock Island tho interrogation hi to
whether or not he was a candidate for
congress has probahlj been propounded
to him with greater frequency than any
other question. His presence in the city
has greatly stimulated the desire for his
nomination and if he withstands the pres
sure of solicitation to become a candidate,
he will display an adamantean and unre-
ciprocal spirit indeed. In referring to a

Another 91 oliner Mirk of l.iff.
Another Moline man found life so on
bearable as to prompt a desire to end his
mortal existence last night. Peter Kess-
ler was the man and the weapon used was
a knife, and a large gash was cut in the
would-be suicide's throat. The actv oc
curred at his room in the Bridge house inJ
Moline, and was only prevented
from being attended with fatal results by
the opportune entrance of his roommate,
who seized his arm as be was about to
inflict a second cut. Mr. Kessler was a
man of from 45 to 50 years of age, is
married, and the father of three children.
He came to Moline some time ago with
the intention of obtaining work in a saw
mill, but had not secured a situation. He

Kessler, of Davenport, who came over
immediately after receiving word of bis
brother's act and had him conveyed to
Mercy hospital. The wound is not of
such a nature aa to be necessarily fatal.

SILVER AND GOLD.
The Debate in the Senate on the
JONIS CONCLUDES HIS L0UG PLEA.
Great Things Promised as the Result of
Free Coinage Some Inquisitive Sena
tors Committee Comments on the Two
Pension Bills 1 tut terworth Attacks the
Tariff Bill An Oak Seed from England
Planted at Washington's Tomb Official
Washisgtos Citt, May 14. Silver was
the subject of senatorial eloquence again
yesterday, and Jones of Nevada was the
principul figure in the discussion. As soon
as the clerk's desk was cleared of routine
business Jones took the floor to complete
his speech. He began by saying that if
the fears expressed by some that free coin
age of silver would drive gold from the
country, for every gold dollar that left, a
silver dollar would be in circulation. But
gold would not go; and if it-could be kept
only on condition of debasing Bilver it
ought to go. The total amount of silver
and gold in the world's stock was about
equal; both possessed in common (and
neither in any higher degree than the
other) all the qualities which are recog
nized as necessary in money. The purpose
in using both had always been to preserve
society from the result of accidents in the
production of either, and the. effect of de
monetization of silver was to defeat that
Redemption in Bullion.
He opposed the idea of redeeming treas
ury notes in bullion, on the ground that
when they were so redeemed the monetary
circnlation would bo contracted; and the
putting of bullion on the market would
not make up to the country for the loss of
money from its circulation. He expressed
entire confidence in, the honesty of pur-'
pose and conscientiousness of motive of
the present secretary of the treasury, but
said that, as none of the secretaries for
twelve years past, had coined a dollar
more than compelled to do, future secre
taries might conscientiously deem it their
duty to keep in circulation the least possi
ble amount of the proposed treasury notes
and thus the United States treasury might
in effect become a mere purchasing agent
fortheKnst India company or for syndi
cates of Knglish merchants wanting bull
Ion cheap in order to make their pay
ments to India.
The Senator's Peroration.
He conujuded as follows: I predict, Mr.
President that the restoration of silver to
its birth-right will mark an epoch in the
history of tbis republic. It will increase
the wages of labor and the prices of the
products of labor; it will reduce the-price
of bonds aud other forms of money futures;
it will lighten, but not inequitably, the
burden of mortgages; it will increase
largely, though not unjustly, the debt-pay-iug
and tax-paying power of the people.
It will loosen th grasp of the creditor
from the neck of the debtor. It
will lift the bowed head of labor; it will
hush the threnody of toil. It will in
augurate the true renaissance a renais
sance of prosperity, without which in
dustry, learning,- science, literature, art,
are but apples of Sodom." Applause.
l'ut Through a Catechism.
1 Blair asked Jones if he meant to lie un
derstood us stating that a fall in prices of
commodities was an absolute demonstra
tion of the iii created value of money. He
(Blair) supposed that the fall In prices re
sulting from a protective tariff was bene
ficial, and was not an indication of an in
crease in the value of money.
Jones replied that tbe tariff, if it had the
effect of reducing prices, did not do so by
reason of a certain percentage being im
posod upon imported goods, but by reason
of the stimulus which it gave to home pro
duction und to inventions.
Never Heard of a 73-Cent Dollar.
McPherson asked whether, if silver dol
lars worth 72 cents were coined without
limitation (thus establishing a silver basis),
the holders of gold ($o00,uoo,000 being held
in the country) would not absolutely with
draw it from circulation.
Jones said that lm hardly knew what the
senator meant by a silver basis, or by a
centdollur. He had never seen a T'-i-ceut
Mcl'hersou Then the senator's argu
ment is that, after we are on a silver basis
(aa we certainly would he) there would be
no inequality in tbe value of the money,
because the money would be all in silver.
Jones And uo inequality between it and
Withdrawal of (told a "Kogy."
McPherson Certainly not, because
there would be no gold in circulation.
You could use your short-legged dollar in
payment of debts; but when you come to
make uew obligations, you would have to
do so at prices equal to the difference be
tween the value of gold and silver.
Jones said that he had never iieard of a
short -legged dollar. All that talk about
the withdrawal of gold from circulation
was a lx)gy to frighten people. With the
exception of a few millions on the Pacific
coast, there was absolutely no gold in cir
culation in the United States. There was
so little gold in circulation that it would
be no exaggeration to say that there were
millions of people in the United States
who had never seen a gold coin.
Who Fathers the Bill?
Jones of Arkansas said that the bill
waa all wrong; that the public did not
care what the bullion value of silver was,
as the public would receive no benefit
from the price. The result of the govern
ment buying jVrfrfJ.OUO per month would
be to cause the price to rise to the point
where the government would have to sus
pend purchases. He favored an amend
ment providing for the unlimited coinage
of silver whenever tbe price reached the
limit in the bill 371. grains for one dollar.
He referred to the bill as the bill, of a Re
publican caucus, and this brought Teller
and other Republicans to their feet with
the statement that it was not such a bill,
but merely the bill of the senate finance
committee. Upon Jones saying that all
the Republicans in the senate would vote
for it, Ingalls, Allison and others declared
that was not bo. The bill then went over.
THE QUESTION OF PENSIONS.
Senate Views on the Service and Depen
dent Pension Bills.
Washington Citt, May 14. The senate
pensions committee, in its report disap
proving the substitntion by the house of
a service pension bill for the senate de
pendent pension bill, says that the differ
ences between the bills are radical, so much
so that they are entirely irreconcilable,
and states then as follows: In tbe senate
bill the pensioner must be wholly depen
dent on his own labor or the generosity of
hthers, white tbe house blii covers every
body; the senate bill fixes the rate of pen
sion at tl'i and - the house bill at (3 a
month; the senate bill makes provision for
dependent parents, which is omitted in the
house amendment; the senate bill provides
that tho disability shall not be the result
of vicious habits; this is omitted In the
house amendment; in fact the house bill is
a service pension bill, which tbe senate's is
The House BUI Inadequate.
Counting the number xf disabled sol
diers in the soldiers' homes and elee
mosynary institutions, there are at least
35,000 disabled and dependent Union sol
diers recipients of public charity. The
rate of $12. a month approaches nearly the
minimum of subsistence, while (8 a month
undoubtedly falls far below it. If it be
deemed expedient to allow a pension, of
$8 per month simply because a person is
disabled, that is no reason why H a month
should be taken from the dependent sol

Which is luliaf n 1... . .....1 .
I well-to-do. Such a bill requires most serf
. . discussion Estimates prepared by
Capt. Ainsworth show that ChV approxf-1
mate aggregate cost of a servo e pension
upon a basis of sixty-two years aa the age
limit will be 1.182.095.523. Upon a basis
of sixty years the cost would be $1,333,109,
829. Of this amount ,079,617,0 'A must be
paid before the end of the year 1915, and
the average annual payment will be $41,
523,733. These estimates are materially
greater than t hose of the house iwmmittee,
but the senate committee adopt them be
cause they seem to based on val id reasons.
BUTTERWORTH NOT SATISFIED.
He Finds Much Fault with the McKlnley
Washington City, May 14 Yesterday
in the senate a bill was reported favorably
for a public building at Madison, Ind., to
cost $75,000. The pension con mittee re
ported a disagreement to the house substi
tute for the dependent pension bill and a
conference was ordered. Jones of Nevada
then completed his speech on the silver
bill and was followed by Jones of Arkan
sas in opposition to the pendii g bill the

ported favorably a bill to const ruct a tun

the tolls fixed by the war olfiee. After
some routine business was transacted the
tariff debate was resumed and Butter-
worth spoke at length in favor of the gen
eral principles of protection but against
what he considered the inequalities of the
bill. He also advocated recipi-ocity with
Canada. Butterworth's spee h was ap
plauded by the Democrats. Ife particu
larly objected to the duty on tiu plate, and
said the bill would enable certain classes
of manufacturers to pocket millions in
profits. A number of amendments reduc
ing duties were offered and rejected, and
after considering thirteen of fie l" pages
of the bill the house adjourned.
Of Interest to Beer Manufacturers.
Washington Citt, May 14. The senate
committee on finance has acr d favorably
upon two bills of interest t manufac
turers and exporters of beer in this coun
try. The first authorizes a change in the
present law so as to permit the transfer
of beer from the brewery to tlie bottling
houses by a pie line or other conduit for
bottling purposes only. The second meas
ure authorizes the export of I eer in bund,

STATUS Or THE CHICAGO OASES.
Ben Kntler Retained and Has No Doubt
of Success Application for a Writ of
Habeas Corpus in Dehalf of Fielden,
Schwab and NeebeTo lie Made to Judge
Greshum Hauls of the Expectations of
tho Prisoners' Counsel.
Chicago, May 14. Preparations have
been made to attempt to secure the release
from the penitentiary of Samuel Fielden,
Michael Schwab, and Oscar Neebe by a
method heretofore not hinted at in the
case. In a short time an application will
be made to Judge Greshum for a writ of
habeas corpus on the ground" that tbe
prisoners are detained without due process
of law. That is, that they were not in court
when sentence of death was pronounced
upon them by the state supremo court.
Gen. Butler is retained in the case, and
says he has no doubt the move will be suc
cessful. History of the Case.
After the sentence of deat h was passed
upon" the condemned Anarchists, and
Neebe was doomed to spend fifteen years
in the penitentiary, the case was appealed
to the supreme court, where the finding of
the lower court with the sentence of death
for Spies, Parsons, Lingg, Fischer, Engel
Schwab and Fielden was n funned. The
prisoners were not taken befoe the su
preme court to bear this affirmation of
their sentences, and their lawyers were uot
even notified to lie present. The claim was
made that this was a breach of their con
stitutional rights, and that the constitu
tion even went so far as to say that a sen
tence of death rendered in the absence of
tbe prisoners was not due process of law
In the Nation's Supreme Court. 1
The claim was not made in time to save
Lingg from self-destruction, or Spies, Par
sons, Fischer, or Engel from the gallows.
Schwab and Fielden would have shared
the fate of the last four had not the gov
ernor interfered with his commutation of
their sentences to imprisonment for life.
Rut finally the claim was pushed to the
U. S. supremecourt, und an application was
made for a writ of error on the grounds
that the surviving felons should have been
In'fore the Illinois supreme court when

the defendants were, actually in court in
spite of the well-known fact t hat they were
Amendment. of the Kceoril.
If the record were ameudmed the su
preme court said it could then consider
the matter. In the March term of 1SSS a
motion was made in the state supreme
court to amend the record, and May 16,
ISS't, the motion was denied on the ground
that it was not necessary that the prison
ers should lie l'fore the court, when the
sentence was affirmed. Furthermore, it
was held that the statutes pave the court
no right to amend the record. This an
swer was taken to the federal supreme
court, where it was argued that, in spite
of the statement of the state supreme
court, the general practice was to amend
the record where evident niistskes existed.
The court finally granted a writ of error,
which will be heard by next Octoler.

This writ of error is ou the point of the
state supreme court's refusal to amend the
record, but if the United States supreme
court decides this to be error it will doubt

sii.1 that her husband had died of cholera.

lenting, and it is supposed that the indict
ment is returned on Kniph's complaint. It
