A few minutes before 2 o'clock Governor
Stone appeared, escort ing Senator I Mil.
The whole assemblage arose to meet them
and the gallrries and floor applauded loud
ly. The governor escorted Senator IJ ill
to the rostrum, where he took a seat be
side the speaker. When the assemblage
quieted Governor Stone arose and intro
duced Senator Hill in a speec h replete with
warm praise for his services to the Demo
cratic party while governor of Xew York.
He comes to us Governor Stone said un-

The New York Senator's Speech.
When the applause subsided Senator
Hill thanked the legislature for the
honor it had done him, and then said that
scarcely ever till November two years ago
and November next "did popular elections
put in issue such extreme dangers or so
large a deliverance. The ground upon
which the Democrats of the state of New
York have taken their stand is the whole
Democratic faith and tradition not some
corner of it merely, not some splinter of it
merely, tut the whole. This is the ground
upon I wonld see the Democrats of the
state or Mississippi with all Democrats of
the north, south, east and west, both ot
the regular organization and the Farm
ers Alliance, unite and take their stand in
the approaching contest.
He Anticipates Triumph.
"Other dut ies for another day. For, like
the victory of Jefferson, this Union, this
victory will close a chapter of history; will
doom to final disintegration a degraded
party, and will fix the direction of our po
litical progress for some, decades in the
century to come. ine Demo
cratic party is stronger than any man or
set of men. No man is ever indispensa
ble to its success, for its strength is with
the people; it is greater and more power
ful than any class, however numerous.".
BELIEVES IN STRICT CONSTRUCTION,
Uut Notes a Case Where the Constitution
Continuing Hill urged a close adherence
and strict construction of the constitution
of the United States, which, he said, was
"the standing marvel in the history of
civilized men. The powers which it grants
are few and specified, and it concentrates
and centralizes those few. It is not any
legalized excursions by congress outside
the constitution which explains why we
etill live and move and have our being be
neath its irgis; it is the declaration of state
rights; it is the reservation ami surrender
of the residue to the states, respectively
for the people, by which we have truly
lived and still bear our life.
The Troblem or the Negro.
"It is individual freedom.not Republican
force bill nor congressional leading strings,
that will enable you, the strong and high
ly civilized race, to guide forward your
less gifted fellow-citizens from the plane
of equality before the law to the higher
level of thrift, economy, good husbandry.

Cooper then asked Raum whether a
pension attorney had loans him money,
and if he had not promised to promote
a pension clerk in consideration of a loan.
Fayson declared the question outrageous,
and Itaum said the implication was false.
He had borrowed flOO from Attorney
lockwood for three days and paid it when
due. He denied that he had given Indiana
soldiers the preference in pension matters
during the campaign of 1SSS, and ad
mitted that he had put Dunbar, Cooper's
opponent for congress that year, on an
equal footing with Cooper, but said it was
a courtesy shown to all prominent men.
This ended the dav's work.

Brosius said if Raum had the right to
make the statement now is the time.
Cooper then took up theinqairy and asked
Itaum if he hud any relatives in the pen
sion bureau. Haum said he had not; he
had recommended his daughter, a widow,
for appointment as confidential clerk, bus
she had not yet been appointed.

was president of the American Mining
company, and Cooper said he wanted to
ehow that Kaum had used his official po
rtion to further the interests of the com

having large business before the bureau.
Judge I'ayson said the statements of that
kind were false and Raum refused 4o say
whether Colonel Dudley, Uradley Tan

asked to take stock while practicing before
Congress in Brief.
Washington, March 16. reffer intro
duced a bill in the senate yesterday to pre
vent discrimination in favor of gold by
the treasury. Some criticism of the treas
ury was indulged in for tardiness in put
ting in estimates on deficiencies, by which
additional deficiencies were sent to the
senate after the house had acted on the
original suras. The conference report
on the urgent deficiency bill was adopted.
The military academy bill was passed.
An executive session was held without re
sult on Judge Woods' case.
A bill to repeal the mail sulisidy act was
introduced in the house. The conference
report on the urgency deficiency bill was
agreed to. and the remainder of the day
was devoted to the free wool debate.
Morrill Will Die In Harness.
Washington, March lti. Although gen
erally supposed to be at t he point of death,
Senator Morrill has no idea of quitting at
present either politics or the earth. When
the doctors told him that he could see no
one outside of his own household he said
he must see Senator Frye. "Impossible,"
replied the physicians. "Gentlemen," said
the aged senator, "while I live I shall be
master in my own house. I shall have
Senator Frye sent for and when he comes
1 shall see him." And ho did see him.

difficulties and unshared burdens or the
south into the solid foundation of still mora
prospeous societies and still more powerful
states. It must be admitted that for a
few brief years our constitution did not
perfectly avail to insure domestic tran
quility. That was in the last generation,
and broken hearts must be healed by time
or death, and one or two more generations
must pass away."
Been Long in the Wilderness.
After paying the south a compliment for
its industrial and commercial achieve
ments since the war the senator said:
"Not for one hour during the last thirty
years has the Democratic party possessed.
nor now does it possess,the power to repeal
or amend the laws passed by the Republi
cans in that period, the fount and origin
of every present disturbance to the general
peace and prosperity. A little while the
Democratic party had the senate, a little
while the executive for longer periods
the bouse of representatives, but not for a
moment during thirty years has it had all
three, so that all these evil-producing laws
have been absolutely beyond our reach
and went on operating and go on operat
ing now just as if the overwhelming Dem
scratlc majority in the house of represen
tatives were a Republican majority."
Other Subjects Treated.
The senator arraigned the Republican
party for the "billion" congress; the re
peal of the sugar tariff, and generally and
specifically on the McKinley bill, which
he said gave millions to the rich but did
not belp the poor one cent, and should be
wiped off" the statute books; for the
Sherman silver bill "into which every Re
publican monetary heresy is crowded," In
THE MODUS VIVENDI MATTER.
What A British Columbian Member of
OTTAWA.Ont., March 16. Thomas Earle.
member of parliament for Victoria, Brit
ish Columbia, speaking to, The Ottawa
Free Press of the attitude of the United
States government because of Lord Salis
bury's refusal to renew the modus Vivendi
of last year, says that the British govern
ment cannot consistently assist - iu enforc
ing regulations prescribed by the United
States congress for the protection of seals
in the Behring sea, while at the same time
time denying t he right of congress to make
any such regulations.
A New View of the Case.
"It seems to me," said Mr. Earle, "that
the question of jurisdiction or ownership
over the seal fisheries of Behring sea
should be determined before any action is
taken toward protec ting the seal. If the
Americans have no jurisdiction over those
waters then any laws made on the sub
ject of seal protection by the congress are
null and void and incapable of enforce
ment. Until the court of arbitration has
declared that the United States has exclu
sive jurisdic tion over the Behring sea fish
eries it would be absurd for Great Britain
to agree to the enforcement of regulations
made by the American congress for the
protection of such fisheries. The people
of the United Stales must see that the
position of their goverment upon that
point is untenable.1
