Washington, Jan. 15. The first notable-
debate of the session occurred yesterday in
t he house over Holman's resolution com
mitting the house airainst subsidies or aid
of any kind to anything not strictly in the
line of government necessity. The jjallcrtes
were well filled with people who c poo! i d
something in the way of a sensational de
bate, and the members were all on hand
either to listen or take part in the conflict.
Some routine business was first transacted
and :it T2.no the resolution rame upas per
the vote on the previous question Wednes
day, and the sjtmont for a debate of
four hours, the Democrats and Republi

Ilolman said that similar resolutions had

DINGLV PROPOSES A SUBSTITUTE.

Dingley of Maine said that since II ol

resolution it. was pnOiable. that the docu

everyone to vole for it: and he therefore,
offered the following as a substitute to be
voted on at the proper time:

iot the Same Mort of Resolution.
Henderson of Iowa mid the resolnii ns of
the Forty-tourth and l'orty-fifih con.-rosscs
were not the same iu tnor a t tint nnder c r
sideration. Then the poverumoiit was Ialmr
inBundora burden of debt which tm lcr 1U
pnbllcan administration is being; pid off. Tbe
resolutions of those con:rersei referred to pub
lic service not departmental service, l.ndcr
the resolution of the gentleman from Indiana
Uot a private pension bill ceuid be patsed and
no public work outsideof a department pmin.-r
lie B ted up. tl. The resolution propose d is in
sincere, for no one has sozi-e-ted that any land
subsidy should be granted to any one.
Refers to the Starring Ktissians
Bnt the resolution, said Henderson, is aimed
against the Btarvinp Kussiaus. for w hos? rein f
the people of the United States bave contr.h
nted larjre quantities of prain. This pram, the
Democratio majority say, shall not be c arre d
to its destination by lue. govei-nment. 1 ne
governor of Iowa appointed a.n apei.t to super
vise the collection and shipment of these Pii ts.
This pent emaa telepraphed urping the pitssaue
of the senate Hussiun resulation. The speaker
had been obilped fr "answer: "I know of no
Republican representative who is opposed io
the passage of tho ri'solution, but rvtrciich
ment Democrats arc killing."
The Government Finances.
Henderson said that the resolution had an
other purpose- The gentleman from Missouri
Rockery in a speech made tbe other dav said
lao government was iacmi impending nans
mptcy, and the irhouls and s avi-nLrcrs ol tie
Democratic party outside 'he Innise are repeat -iug
the story and addinv; to it in terms. Hen
derson then proceeded to di.-cuss Docket y's
siieet-h in detail. and to ana'.yru its
statements, showins that iKxkcry waa
all wroiig, that the lational mini mist ration
had lived wituiu its means lie-ides j aviim off
a large amount of the national debt, an I that
there was a surplus of ST.eoti.tM) foitlic rlvst mj

Doekery bal made it out. Hendersou ajioke 67
minutes, sain part of his time.
Doekery Has l igures. Too.
Then Doekery aroe and proceeded to

uratively speaking, with those fciven by
Henderson. The surplus in the treasury

quoted columns of figures all ob
tained from the same source as thir-e.
of Hendeison. and all knocking into "pi-1
tho aforesaid Henderson's Injures, just as
Henderson's figures bad demolished thoso
formerly presented by Doekery. The two
speeches were a pretty illustration of tho
elasticity of 'figures,' and they bad this
feature that each party w;us perfectly sat
isfu-d with it-s own showiug.
What lint;ley and Livingston Said.
Dingley characterized tbc resolution a
pure buncombe and proceeded then tc
demolish Dockery's figures on the nat ior
linances. He did it to the satisfaction ot
his own party, after which Livingston, ot
tieorgia. Alliance memlicr, advocatetl thi
resolution and put in a jeremiad over thf
starving farmers of the United States, all
of which was caused by taxation, princi
pally national, bnt which he himself tig
tired up in total national, state and muni
cipal as ?17 per capita, of which be
claimed that $d was due to national tax
ation, including protective tariff effects,
.lumped on Secretary Foster.
Sayres of Texas said that Secretary Fos
for showed a surplus of 14,OiH(Kio fot
IVf? 0:. but. that it was done by juggling
the figures with intention to deceive, fot
there really w.ts a deficit of f:J!l,,M.
Hopkins of Illinois said the resolutions
were simply a label "I am an honest man"
for eot.uivss, and that a body that bad to
label it si !f tli.it way w ould do to watch,
lie defended t be 'billion-dollar'' congress.
MeKeirvi s:,id the resolut ion was bun
combe, and Doilver of Iow a said it was a
iud bag that bad been thoroughly piinct
View s of other tient 1 men.
Millikcn of Maine made fun of the Dem
V.iacry relieving anvboi'.v if anvthing
j that needed relieving. Wheeler said that
ii t he I VnuK-raey never relieved anybody it
, never robbed anyliody. Hooker supported
the resolution heartily. Owens ot Ohio,
Democrat, criticised tbe resolution, and
said that his constituents expected him to
vote upon every measure as it was pre
sented and to support those that be
deemed proper and right. Why he should
today decide upon how be should vote nt
.some future time he could not see; and
therefore be opposed the last resolution.
As to the "theatrical'' part, which bad
formed the principal topic of the after
turn's talk be bad little interest in it and
should vof" against it.
Ilolman Want More Talk.
At this point, Holman announced that to
day he would move a reconsideration of
the vote by which the previous question
wa.s ordered, and suggested t hat the house
adjourn. If it did adjourn be would in
the meantime decide whether or not to
press the motion when tbe bouse reassem
bles. Heed The gentleman desires to with
draw for repairs.
This sally was greeted with out hurts ot
laughter on both Hi-publican and Demo
cratic sides. Springer endeavored to net
ill his bill to place raw wool on the free list
n ml reduce the duties on manufactured
woolen goods, lmt Owens of Ohio, who
wanted the pending n solttt ion disposed of,
objei ted, and the bouse adjourned.
