The Senior Colorado Senator
Emulates His Colleague.
NOTABLE FEATURES OF HIS SPEECH
The President Charged With tilnf Pat
ronage to Defeat Free Coinage A Bolt
of Four States Predicted. Which San.
dorm Repudiate. So Far as Montana Is
Concerned A Senator's Season for
Voting to Oust Young Powderly Pro
tests Against a Remoral Official
Washixgtox, April 21. Teller occupied
the attention or the senate yesterday In a
long speech on the silver question, which
was principally notable for following the
course of his colleague and attacking the
president and the Republican party. He
said we had fallen on evil times, and were
told that the silver question was not of so
much importance as to have certain men
of oni- political party or the other elected
president for the ensuing four years. He
asserted that the federal patronage had
been used to influence the house of repre
sentatives, which otherwise would have
had a Ininjority sufficient to pass a free
coinage bill- And Democrats had bc-en in
duced to vote against it because it was
feared that if frse coinage was passed the
great state of New York, with more presi
dential voles than any other state in the
Union, would go Republican.
An Argument for Stiver.
He traced ami aseriled the low price of
wheat arising from the successful comne-
tition of India to the demonetization of!
silver in the 1 nited States in 1873. The
Indian shipper could buy wheat in Bom
bay at $1.30 a bushel in silver, ship it to
England at 14 cents additional, making
$1.34, and sell it in the British market at
90 cents in fold. The Ameiican shinner.
receiving the same price, found his 90 cents
worth here 00 cents aud no more. The In
dian shipper, with his HO cents in gold,
could buy an ounce and a third of silver
which he could put into rupees at $1.33 an
ounce, and t hus his ounce and a third of
silver would yield him in the currency of
India $1.85 or '$1.90, and the $1.85 had
the same purchasing power iu India that
it had thirty or 100 years ago.
Wu Iown on the "Force" Hill.
Referring to some charges that the
"force"1 .bill was beaten by the silver men
in accordance with a "deal" with the
Democrats on free silver he denied it, and
said he had opposed the bill from the
first. Two years had now elapsed. In the
interim he had read that bill over twenty
time, and he repeated that if it were now
presented to him as a party support or
party dismissal he would not vote for the
bill ,for a more infamous bill never passed
through the doors of the senate. He then
turned round and charged that the op
ponents of free silver had engaged in a
dAl with the anti-force bill men by which
the silver bill was to be Bide t- acked.
V Another Attack on Harrison.
Teller claimed that the Republican
platform of 188 was a free coinage plat
form aud was so understood in the silver
states, where it raised high hopes. When
the silver men came back to congress in
December they were met by a proposition
for the purchase of silver and making the
United States a conduit through which sil
ver could pass into India, and this was all
there was of it. The silver men were told
by the friends of the administration that
if they did not choose to take that they
would get nothing, and they preferred to
get nothing. They made a fight in the
senate for free coinago and won, but lost
in the other house through undue and im
proper executive interference.
DECLARES A BOLT IMMINENT.
Four Silver States to Qait Republicanism
Sanders Says So.
"I now come," continued Mr. Teller,
"to the Republican party's attitude on
this the silver question. Are we to be
put oua single gold standard or are we to
have another misleading plank in our
platform, which shall mean one thing
on the stump and another in execu
tive administration? I say with much
deliberation, carefully weighing my words
and knowing the comment they will occa
sionthat if the Republican party stands
for the gold standard the four silver pro
ducing states of Colorado, Montana
Nevada and Idaho will not hereafter be
able to act in co-operation with the Re
publicans in this or any other body. Why
Local Interests Paramount.
"We have local interests which are para
mount. We supported the McKinley bill,
not because it was our int erest to do bo
for we are not manufacturing states, and
if manufactured goods can be had cheaper
it is better for us but because we believed
tbtfsftrosperity of the whole nation was
bound up in this protective system. We
intend so to stand in the future. We make
no threats, but we cannot continue to in
sist upon government by a party hostile to
every local interest we hare.
People's Party the Only Hop.
"I do not wish it to be inferred that we
believe that the Democratic party would
be any more liberal to us than the Repub
licans have been. It is true we have had
from that tide of the chamber
many supporters, but, like onr own party,
they are in the toils of a ' power they dare
hot defy, and the danger is that these two
great political parties in their anxiety to
control the state of New York will neglect
and repudiate the interests of the great
masses of the country, and act alike on
this silver question."
Sanders Reminded of a Case.
At the close of Teller's speech, which oc
cupied two hours and a half and caused
an unmistakable sensation in the senate,
Banders of Montana rose to protest against
the implied threat contained in Teller's
remarks as far as they applied to Montana.
He said t reminded hira of the case of a
young man in Montana who was so dis
gusted 'with the lesult of the last
election tent he determined to pack up
and go away, bnt when be read the morn
ing paper next day, and found that every
other state bud gone the same way, he con
cluded he had nowhere to go to,- and re
considered his determination. Whenever
the time shall arrive, said Sanders, when
the people of these silver-producing states,
dissatisfied with existing conditions, shall
change their political faith, they will de
termine their nnlitical fntnra oHr.h fcearfnf
'deliberation. . . -
Knights to Milhoiland's Defense.
Washington, April 21. T. V. Powder
ly,' grand master workman tf the Knights
of Labor, arrived in Washington Tuesday
evening and proceeded direct to the execu
tive mansion, where he had an extended
Interview with the president as to the dis
missal of Milholland chief of immigrant
Inspectors at New York. Powderly laid
before the president the protests against
the removal made by the labor organiza
tions and made an appeal for MilboUand's
reinstatement. It is understood that the
president has referred the matter to Act
lag Secretary Spalding.
THOSE EXECUTIVE SECRETS.
An Incident That Points a Moral Bnt
loes Not Adorn a Senator.
Washington. April 21. The letter from
Seneral Boynton, in which he cited specific
instances in which the very senators now
most loudly clamoring for secrecy had
placed at his disposal documents from the
confidential files, and furnished him ex
ecutive news, naturally excited wide atten
tion at the CapitoL It may be supple
mented by an incident which occurred on
the very day that the vote which deposed
Mr. Young was taken. A certain western
senator left the executive session, and in
the lobby outside crave to a corresDOudent
the proceedings which had occurred inside
the closed doors with reference to a nomi
nation in which he was interested.
Was Voting for Favors.
When he had concluded the relation of
the details, he said: "Xow, if there is noth
ing more, I must go in and vote against
'What?" asked the correspondent, and
the exclamation was echoed by another
correspondent who was in the group.
''You certainly do not intend to declare
Young guilty of lietraying secrets after
what you have just doncf
"Well," said the senator, "the case is just
this. Young is nothing to me and the
committee on foreign relations want his
head. I am going to stand by the com
mittee, for they can do me favors during
the years I am in the senate."
LATEST STYLE OF DOLLAR.
It Is Called "Composite" and Based on
Farm Products, Etc.
Washington, April 21. Kyle of South
Dakota, by request, introduced in the sen
ate yesterday the most remarkable finan
cial bill of the session, providing for the
establishment of a "composite dollar." The
chief clause of the bill enacts that the
composite dollar should be established in
the following manner: Designate so much
of wheat, rye, oats, corn, barley, beans,
potatoes, cotton, wool, butter, eggs, flour,
sugar, lard, pork, beef, tobacco,
salt, leather, hemp, cement, cot
tonseed, brick1, lead, pig iron,
coal and copper as shall be conveniently
near to one dollar's worth of each in the
New York market, so arranging quanti
ties that the sum total of the value of
thirty articles shall be $30, and one-thirtieth
of the sum total of the articles desig
nated shall lie termed the composite dol
lar of the United states." Further pro
visions enact that an accurate monthly
average record shall be kept of the daily
price of these articles, and that it shall be
lawful for any person or corporation to
eiignge to receive or deliver composite dol
lars based on this security.
The Congressional Brief.
Washington, April 21. Teller made an
anti-administration free silver speech in
the senate yesterday, and said that if the
Republican party continued to adhere to
the single gold standard the four chief,
silver producing states of Colorado, Mon
tana, Nevada and Idaho would not be Re
publican hereafter. Sanders of Montana
denied this. Sherman announced that the
existing Chinese restrictive legislation
had two years to run instead of twenty
days. This postpones the Geary exclusion
The house devoted its entire session to a
continuation of the Xoyes-Rockwell con
tested election case. The debate was en-
tirely without incident, the speeches
being confined to a technical view of the
Gen. Kaum's Happy Family.
Washington, April 2L The investiga
tion into the pension bureau was con
tinued yesterday, the evidence going to
show principally that the men who have
been or are in that bureau constitute a
happy family, f ord, assistant chief, de
nied certain ugly charges made against
him by Mrs. Wright and said they were
inspired by men who wanted to get him,
out. He also ridiculed Major Barker as
strutting about the halls swelled up with
self-importance. General Dugan, who
had been dismised, declared that Genej il
Bussey- (who opposed bis reinstatement)
was an informal scoundrel who should be
in the penitentiary.
Legislation for Trainmen.
Washington, April 21. The committee
on interstate commerce yesterday reported
to the senate, as a substitute for a joint
resolution on the same subject, an im
portant bill direct ing the interstate com
merce commission to ascertain and report
to congress annually certain information
in respect to the adoption by common car
riers engaged in interstate commerce of a
uniform system of automatic couplers on

plenipotentiary of the United States to
Japan; J: it. Tanner to be assistant treas
urer of the United States at Chicago. -
MUNOZ WAS A VILLAIN.
A Criminal Trickster Who Fooled the
Spanish Police. .
Madrid, April 21. It is learned that
Munoz, who has been considered the arch
conspirator of the anarchists in Spain, is a
trickster and humbug, who has been hood
winking the police while pretending to act
as their tool. The recent so-called plot to
blow up the cortes, it seemed, was arranged
by the police through Munos for the pur
pose of entrapping Delboche, Ferrecla, and
the other anarchists who are now under '
arrest for placing the bombs in the build
ings. Worst Kind of a Plotter.
Munoz represented to the authorities
that these men were dangerous characters,
always plotting mischief, and that it
would be well to lead them into some
nefarious scheme, get them to hopelessly
compromise themselves, and thus obtain
an excuse for putting them out of harm's
way. He procured the booms, induced
Delboche and the others to place them
where they were found by the police, and
then told the police where the guilty
could be found.
The Police Learn Something.
The' police have now come to the con
clusion that the prisoners were harmless
fellows so long as left alone, and that but
for MunozHi urging they would never
have attempted the crime of which they
are accused. It is even suspected that
they did not realize the seriousness of
what was be.ng done, and perhaps did not
know the nature of the weapons which
Munoz had placed in their hands.
Baltimore and Ohio Dividend.
Baltimokk, April 21. The directors of
the Baltimore and Ohio railroad yester
day declared a dividend of one-quarter per
cent, on the stock of the main system for
the three months ended Dec. 31, 191, and
a dividend of 5 per cent, on the stock of
the Washington branch for the half year
ended March 31.
Bill Limiting Hours of Labor.
Washington, April 21. The house com
mittee on labor yesterday ordered a favora
ble report on a bill limiting the hours for
a day's labor. The bill provides that it
shall be unlawful for any officer of the
United States or the District of Columbia,
or contractor or sub-contractor, to permit
any laborer or mechanic towork morethaa
eight hours upon any public works in the
United States or District of Columbia on
any calendar day. except in case of extra
