Report A. J. Warner, of Ohio, and
Judje Widner, of Los ABgelev Give
Kansas Citv. April it. It is ;v:dect
that tua attempt at the commercial con
gress to discuss polit.cal matters without
going into politics :s doomed to failure.
For some days the belief has been glow
ing among those who are here iu attend
ance ou the congress that the whoie thing
was rapidly developing into a pou icai
movement. The debate indulged in
Weduesday night between Congressman
Breckinridge, of Arkansas, and Chauncey
Filler, oE St. Louis, showed the treud
of thought, and showed that the rule of
non-partisanship would be dropped oa ali
occasions where the ideas advanced were
n conflict with the views of those who
took part in the proceedings.
A Tight Over the Resolutions.
Senator H. B. Keliey, of Kansas, who is
looked upon as the father of the conven
tion, said last evening that it was time to
break away from party fealty and, if
necessary, form a new party which would
give the west and south that which they
ould not otherwise obtain. Ha said that
what he wanted was free coinage and low
tarifl, Rnd this was what would be worked
for. The conflict will begin when the
committee on resolutions presents in re
port. This fisrht was presaged Wednes
day, when there was a long wrangla over
the vote that should be cast on all resolu
tions aud in which jt was plainlv shown
that such states as Indiana. Minnesota,
ami Illinois would not be allowed a vote
in the matter unless they agreed to every
thing that Kansas. Oklahoma, and Mis
souri, wuc lue soatnern states, asked
Free Trade and Free Coinage.
The resolutions will indorse free and
unlimi'ed coinage of silver, the issuance
of paper money by the government re
deemable m com, tana for revenue, and
the immediate foreclosure of the mort
gages on the Union Pacific railroad and
branches. Thore will be a minority re
port on all of these questions, as the vote
ia committee stood 11 to S, and the minor
ity gave notice that they, too, would pre
sent a report. The debate in committee
was hot, and it is openly asserted that if
the radical portion of the congress per
sists in carrying out its policy the men
from the conservative states wilt un
doubtedly withdraw from the meeting
and refuse to indorse the proceedings.
Matters Discasaed Yesterday.
Yesterday James Peabody read a paper
on railway pools and held that low rates
were not so necessary as stable ones. C.W.
Blair began to discuss transportation, but
soon got on the currency question and ad
vocated inflatiou. He wanted free trade
also, qualified, however, with reciprocity.
He said that all the recent railway legis
lation was bad, including the - inter
state commerce law. . . Wilihun -E.
Schweppe, president of the St. Louis
Wholesale Grocers' association, said rail
ways were not private property, but pub
lic trusts. He added the seeming contra
diction that he did not want to restrict
the right of American citizens to build
railways, but did not want them built by
Improving the Mississippi.
A telegram was received from Charles
S. Smith, president of the New York
Chamber of Commerce, calling the atten
tion of the congress to "the late action of
this chamber regarding the improvement
of the Mississippi river, and particularly
the grave importance ot protecting the
ndjacent section from the terribla rav
ae otc:iionrd by periodical overflows of
the river. They beg to most respectfully
convey to you their conviction as ex
pressed in their reports and memorials to
congress that it is a matter of national
importance, and to express the hope that
you may consider the subject worthy of
What Warner and Widner.
A. J. Warner, of Ohio, said that the
business of the country was top heavy
with hank credits. He wanted the base
broadened by the addition of a thousand,
or even live thousand, millions in "real
money, " eitLer cold or silver, and panics
would bs impossible. Judge R. M. Wid
ner, of Los Angeles, Cal., wanted more
money, but had no use for any
of the current schemes to that end. He
proposed that all the gold and silver be
used ainl supplemented by the issue of
ift) to 23 per capita in paper legal tender.
This money question was discusred all
the afternoon aud at the night session un
til adjournment at 9 o'clock, but very
little that was new was developed.
