WA9II1KOTON ClTT. Jan. 14 The nnti
frse coinage men had their day in the sen
ate yesterday, Shertnun leadius? off in a
speech occupying four hours that was
heartily applauded at its conclusion. Hu
said that Stewart's amendment lixed tho
price the (toverninent Hlionld pay f'r sil
ver at $..) per ounce, and this with sil
ver to-dny nt about 1.0J was tin offer
to pay !M cents uu ounce more than tho
market price; and no matter in wlint form
the silver wa preseuted it liml to lie
worked over, and this cot the treasury
an additional "J ci-nts all ounce. If he be
lieved the free coinage of silver would
enable us to maintain the value of silver
bullion up to that of gold, he would vote
for free coinage to-day; hut if it were ad
mitted that silver could not reach K11
except by the KOvermueiit payinsj a
bounty to the domestic producer of sil
ver, be ditl not think there was any dau
ger of the measure becoming law.
Effect of Free Silver Coinui;e.
The government was not stroii euo'iijU
to tlx the value of a bushel of wheat, aud
it could not II x the value of au ounce of
silver bullion. If silver reached a parity
with gold It would remain there only so
loo as the government paid the price; tho
wants of the people and not the law of
man regulated markets. Sherman de
clared that wherever there was fr coin
age of silver, gold was demonetized, or
quoted at a premium. There was no
country in Europe where there was free
coinage of silver. What sane man would
pay any debt in gold when he could take
to the mint silver bulliou, costing less in
the markets of the world, and receive for
it treasury notes which were legal tenders
for all debts.
His roaltion on tbe Bland Hill.
Sherman fortified his argument by cit
ing the fact that when silver, under the
ratio of 134, was at a premium here. It
was demonetized and remained so for
years, and in order to get tho benefit of
the use of silver wa had to reduce the ra
tio In order to pre vent its exportation.
Referring to tbe silver legislation of 1ST
be said he opposed the original Bland free
coinage bill, fearing it would make a rev
olution in the monetary affairs of the
country; but he had rot opposed the
Bland-Allison act as it was patseJ, with
Its limitations to coinage. Speuking of
the workings of the Ulmid-Alli-ori act,
Sherman said that S!SO.Jio,oX) silver dol
lars bad been coiued and maintained at
par with gold, not because of the iutriusic
value of the silver dollars, but because of
tbe credit of tbe government.
The 8ilver System of France.
Had the original Bland bill passed in
187s the country to-day would be on a sil
ver standard, but with the Bland
Allison act the country, he thought, was
on tbe gold standard, and yet the United
States used silver to a greater extent than
any other country except France. France
was not half as liberal about silver as the
United States had been for years. Silver
was not coined t here, and was not a legal
tender for a higher amount than $10, and
yet the senate had been told that France
was a silver nation. lie did not think,
that the United States alone, unaided by
the co-operation of foreign powers, couiil
bring this vast commodity up to tVJS ant!
keep it there.
An Extreme Remedy Demanded.
Why, he asked, should the bullion own
ers of Nevada and Colorado be paid more
than the market price for their silver?
Why should not the farmer say when bis
wheat went down to less than a living
price: kGive me what I ought to have, the
average price per year." lnsteal of pur
suing a simple remedy a change of ratio,
after conferring with tbe nations of the
world about it the extreme remedy was
being pres-ed of basing all tho wealth of
the country on a standard of silver which
was going down in value relatively to gold,
acd had been going down for 4' ""J yeurs.
The Standard la Cold.
He believed that the best money ever
devised by man was the treasury notes of
tbe United states issued under the law of
' session goll certificates and silver
te9. That was the kind of money
iuld always circulate. Neither gold
ver could circulate amonij the
an people. There was lying in the
y a mass of Syu.OtXl.OUU of silver dol
m,.. 'hat was the highest evidence that
the people did not want either silver coin
or gold coin. Tbey wanted paper based
on silver and on gold, based on solid
values and supported by the credit of the
government. It was a mere representa
tive of mon?y, and there has to be a stand
ard of value behind It. The standard now

silver had all of the qualities that gold
nau, ana that It would be used bv the
people of the world as money, and what
ever he eould do to promote that end lu
would do here, now, everywhere, and al
ways. It was but a poor pretext for a
free coinage measure, if the effect of it wa
only to take care of our own production,
and give to our silver owners 24 cents an
ounce. It looked to the establishment by
the United States of a ratio which did not
prevail anywhere else on the globe.

WASHlNtiTON- ClTV, Jau. 1--Thj new
phas.- which the Buhriug Sea controversy
has assumed excites much interest In of
ficial circles, and there is considerable
speculation as to what will likely be the
next move. Secretary Blaine doubtless
knew that the move In the supremacourt
was contemplated, and it Is assumed that
he ncijuie-ced in it. It Is pointed oit that
if Secretary Illaine still desires to retain
posses-ion or the question all that iU be
necessary for him to do will be to have the
United States district attorney for Alaska
nolle prosequi the case of the Saywjrd In

there would !a nothiug tonppealto tbe

that thecase soiiu-ht to he introduced was
a political case without legal aspectf, and,
therefore, had no place in the supreme

of war and peace It may be of interest to
show the India n aide of the question. Tbe
redskins have been fighting because tbey
have been half starved and compelled to
suffer the rigot s of this climate in cotton
sheets, the issue of . overalls,
shawls, boots and shoes having been
postponed from time to time until now
it is not likely tbat they will get them be
fore spring. The beef when received here
in October weighed or was paid for at a
receiving weight of 1,132 pounds a head
About uuS head of these beeves were gath
ered np a few dys ago, and were weighed
yesterday by a roard of army officers.
Heavy Blirtnkage In Welctat.
"The scales showed tbat the steers
weighed but &W pounds a head. Admit
ting that in October they actually
weighed 1,133 pounds each, there is now
a shrinkage of pounds a head in three
months of a c omparatively mild fall and
winter. An 1,1; 2-pouud beef should net 60
per cent., or WJ pounds. This shrink
age is on the . net ' weight, as
hides, hoofs, horns and bones do
not shrink. Th se guS beeves, therefore,
net but St pounds, and aa the Indians
have not been isiued full beef on even tbe
1,133-poutid basil, tbey have practically i
ceived but little over quarter rations of
meat, and thirt r people are supposed to
live on one beet tor lourteen day.

froeeedlns; In the Legislature.
The usual flood of bills poured out of
pockets of the solous yesterday. One
of the most important in the senate was
Hamsey's school bill. It is a bill to pre
vent truancy and in view of the issue in
the last campaign its most intereating
provision is tne first section, which pro
vides tbat all children must go to scuool
at least sixteen weeks in the year to
"some puhlio or private school wherein
is taught English, reading, writing, arith
metic, history of the United States aud
geography." The provisiou in the prvaeut
law that the instruction ahall be in Eng
lish, it will be seen, is left out so that the
whole curriculum may be taught in auy
language. Bills were introduced in the
house: for an iusaue asvtum for chronic
patients, appropriating WD.WO; abolishing
the divisious of tbe supreme court, so tbat
the whole court shall travel all over the
state; prohibiting railway companies from
compelling their employes to join a com
pany insurance society; providing that
carelessness of a fellow employe ehall not
bur injured men from ootaiotiig damagea
from a co poration; providing that the
state ahil! priut its own school books; tas
ing all e. less companies Xpurceut. on
gross receipts; protecting labor unious
in their labels, trade marks, etc. ; for pun
ishing people who make lilwllou state
ments about other people to m reporter,
to assess a tax on mortgages (Taubeuuck);
a joint resolution instruct. ng the senntors
from this state to vote fur free coinage.
Tbe Republicans refused to vote, and it
was adopted by the Democrats and Alli
ance men. Van Praag, of Chicago, intro
duced a bill relieving saloonkeepers from
liability for selling liquor to drunkards
unless tbey know them to be sucb. Two
other bills were to punish bribery and to
elect railway cemmiesiouers by popular
The senate appointed a committee on
joint rules, and received sundry bills. One
of these was providing that eight hours
shall constitute a day's work.
