Thai the Vermont statesman Cannot
Agree With Connection Suggested
Between Silver Ideas and the ; ree'ii

ing a Rest.
Washington-, June 17. Morrill of Ver
mont, the venerable chairman of the sen
ate finance committee, obtained an indefi
nite leave of absence yesterday, but be
fore ho took his departure from the Sen
ate chamber concluded to help along the
oratory on silver and get in a few "drives"
at Palmer and Hill especially Hill and
thereby reinforce Morgan at the sena
torial bellows. He said that the free coin
age resolution which opened the debate
was evidently pushed by the distinguish
ed senator from Alabama (Morgan) with
some comic hopefulness that the sena
torial Democratic candidates for the presi
dency would remain in the senate to have
their Votes counted, and not seek by flight
outside into the "boom -proof smoking
room-' to escape from all harm. "But the
skilled marksman from Alabama," said
Morrill, "must have been sadly disap
pointed, as I was, that he did not w ing a
I single presidential bird, and he was ap
parently not unwilling that the brave si n
i ator from Nevada, nothina loath, should
jump on hoard of the rudderless coinage
craft as the pilot to steer it on its perilous
Means Good -By a to Gold.
"When the- partisans of free coinage of
silver talk about bimetallism," said Mor
rill, "they mean good-bye to all but silver.
All else- must get out of the way. No pre
vision is ever suggested in behalf of an
increase or e xtension of gold; but we are
asked to lielieve that when the govern
ment purchases silver at the coining price
the owners ask for it, and declare that
the public shall take at thai price, that then
its value wiil miraculously mount up to a
parity with gold. Mr. President, that
declaration would nut go unchallenged by
the fresh mam Clam ef a woman's village
school in 'Way hack.'
Makes Fan of a Contention.
The contention that we can add 50. per
cent, to the value of silver throughout the
world by the free coinage of silver dol
lars containing 371 grain of pore silver
to the full extent of whatever silver bull
ion may le attracted to the United States
mints or lie presented from all parts of the
world to be coined and held forever im
prisoned in the tombs of the United States
treasury, and thereon sustain a legal te n
der paper circulation with the full value
of any other dollar is a feat of hardly leas
extravagance than would tie a patent pro
ject to warm the moon hy setting fire to a
wood pile on Pike's Peak.11
Th. DowAaad for heap Money-
Morrill contended that the silver law- of
1890 was constantly increasing our paper
currency at the rate of 7.,(hiu,joo yearlv.
W ith more money in circulation than ever
before the silver orators stretched their
consciences to make the American people
unhappy by per-uading them that there
was an alarming deficiency. Tiny de
manded a greater abundance of w hat they
called "cheap mone y." Apparently a 67
cent silver dollar was not cheap enough
and they put forth the lofty demand for
an inc rease of our circulation from .'4 to
Kiii per capita, to be wholly propped on sil
ver in order to make assurance doubly
sure by enormous inflation that the silver
dollar should become still cheaper.
The 1'iat oi the Government.
Continuing he -aid "Some silver par
tisans insist that the fiee coinage of silvi r.
when made a legal tender by the Bat of
government, would bring it to a parity
with gold on the old ratio and declare
there is no proof to the contrary. They
well know that not for twenty years, not
since the sudden and growing deprecia
tion of silver, has any nation, enlightened
or unenlightened, licen so foolhardy as to
attempt the rash experiment: and yet the-y
appear to insist that the United States
hall alone accept it without a trial, take
the leap in the eh.ik. and cut off all chance

ator from Kansas ipeffer in behalf of the

The Typographical Co loo.
Philapkli'HIa, June 17. The members
of the International Typographical union
who went on a pleasure jaunt to Atlantic
City Wednesday, resumed consideration
of business yesterday. The session was
an executive one and lasted until after 12
o'clock, when a recess was taken until 2
o'clock. The matters considered related
entirely to the Childs-Urexel home and
fund. At the afternoon session William
B. Prescott was re-eleceed president upon
the first ballot. The name of the home
at Colorado Springs w as changed so as to
include all allied crafts represented in the
International Typographical union. Jas.
A. Hanifen, of Nashville, was elected vice
president, and W. T. McClevy, of Chi
cago, secretary. The "Big Six"-Whitelaw
Heni matte was laid over.
Doing In Senate and Home.
Washington, June 17 In the senate
yesterelay Morrill delivered an extensive
speech on the question of free coinage, in
opposition to the Stewart bill. The sen
ate was on the point of adjourning when
Washburn called up the anti-option bill
from the table, and after some debate it
was referred to the conmitte on the judi
ciary. Frye reported that the conferrees
on the river and harbor bill had failed to
agree and the senate agreed to insist on
its amendments and ask a further confer
ence. Adjourned until Monday.
The tin plate bill occupied the time of
house, although but little interest was
manifested in the debate, the members
paying no attention to it.
THE NEW IMMIGRATION BILL.
Steamship Lines Hud a l ew 1'rovlsiona
That Could He Improved.
Washington. June 17. The house com
mittee on immigration has received a
number of letters from the attorneys of
the various steamship coniianies regard
ing the proposed immigration bill. Letters
from thtise connected with the Canard,
Bed Star, and Inman hues say they warm
ly endorse the general principles eniliod
ied in the oi II as reported to the house,
but they do not think it reasonable to
throw the onus of verification and exam
ination of Immigrants upon the captains,
chief officers and surgeons of vessels.
An Impracticable Requirement.
The provision of the bill requiring the
signature and the oath or affirmation of
the master, taken liefore the 1'uiteil States
couusul at the port of departure brfore the
sailing of the vessel, that he lias made a
personal examination of all the passen
gers named on the lists or manifests and
that he has caused the surgeon to make a
physical examination of each naasengei
they say, is entirely impracticable for the
reason that the captain of the steamer
never sees his passengers until they reach
his vessel, ami until the day of sailing.
It In Physically Impossible.
His duties, they add, confine him entire
ly to the steamer, w hich lie is not allowed
to leave the day before departure, when
the passenge r- nrrive at the port of em
brakati.iu. It isa physical impossibility for
the captain to examine any of the passen
gers before departure, and he could not be
made responsible for their condition. The
person, they say, who should be made re
sponsible, is the owner or agent, who
comes into perspna c ontact with the pas
sengers, and Under whose supervision t hey
gaaxoatlona for Amendment.
In conclusion they say that in view of
this, ami as tending to produce a far bet
ter result, in fact, the only practical re
sult, it is recommended that the steam
ship company, the owner, or agent be sub
ttituted for the captain is make the veri
