gestions a to Newspaper Postage.
Washington, May 19. There v was a
passage of some warmth in the senate
yesterday between Vilas and Gorman over
the latter's speech on Friday last in which
he insisted that economy at this session
was impossible. Gorman began it. He
expressed surprise at what seemed to him
Vilas' unjust criticism of his position, and
repeated that the Republican congress
and president had made it abeolntly neces
sary for this congress to appropriate 1300,-
. 000,000. There was no escape from it, but
there was no Democrat in congress today
that could be held responsible for . it.
When newspapers 1a the professed inter
est of the Democratic party held up to the
people the hope that a Democratic house
with 100 majority could reduce it, they
were deceiving the people.
May Economise Next Session.
The voting of money for local improve
ments and striking down great appropria
tions for work that would benefit the
whole country was not economv. He
hoped to see the Democracy soon restored j
to power, but to do so it must fairly re
represent the facts and not claim the
power to reduce expenses when they did not
possess the same. This was not the Demo
cracy's fault the Republicans were re
sponsible but all the same $500,000,000
would be required for this year, of which
1145,0(0,000 would be needed for pensions.
Expenditures could not be reduced at this
session, but the next session they
mifiht be reduced $30,000,000 or
$40,000,000 and thus bring the total ap
propriations of the Fifty-second congress
below those of this amount.
Vila Replies to the Marylander.
Vilas said that Gorman "seems to me to
be superheated. He seems unnecessarily
sensitive. It cannot be due to anything
said by me. I am afraid he has recognized
that the course of the discussion in which
ne indulged, mat ine tendency ot his re
marks, more than what was said, seemed
to be more gratifying to his and my politi
cal enemies than to his and my political
friends; and that because of an apparent
isolation he has seemed to think that he
was criticised when no criticism was in
tended and none was expressed." The
Democracy should po before the people as
a unit and not with one section declaring
for economy and the other justifying the
increase of taxation.
Gorman Thanks His Critic.
Vilas referred to the line of argument
adopted by Gorman on this bill as sub
stantially advocating a bounty upon t-hip
building. Gorman replied that if so, the
policy was one that had been inaugurated
by Secretary Whitney.
Vilas Why that is so easy to answer I

A BLACK EYE FOR SILVER.
A Free Coinage Amendment Rnled Ont
of the Sundry Civil Bill.
During the consideration of the sundry
flvil hill in the hnnse the chair rnled nnt
Bartine's amendment for free coinage as'of flowers adorne,tthe desk of Congress
chantrimr existing law. Bartine annealed ! TOan Caminetti. ot California, yesterday,
and was defeated. Bland then came up
with a free coinage proposition. He first
moved to strike out the appropriation of
$100,000 for recoining uncurrent fractional '
silver coins abraded below the limit of tol
erance in the treasury. But this was at
tached to another proposition that would
practically establish free coinage.
Bland's Proposition In FnlL
His proposition on the subject was as
follows: "And for the coinage of all si
ver bullion purchased and now in the
treasury into standard silver dollars, the
cost of the coinage herein provided for to
be paid out of the seniorage or gain to the
government in the coinage of said bullion,
the remainder of such seniorage or gain to
be covered into the treasury as available
money." Dingley made the point of order
that this was not germane and did not re
trench expenditures. Bland denied this
and said that it was unquestionably in
order, as it
was both germane to the bill '
and reduced expenditures $100,000, which
was saved to the government.

sharp and some what personal debate be

policy of th s Democratic party.
Another t ay was devoted to the sundry

$fr Would Need More Carriers.
"Second clats publications should not be
allowed to be mailed for home delivery at
the cent-a-pound rate, as the letter-carrier
force of al. laige postoffices would be
heavily taxed in the duty of making such

He suggests i he following modifications,
