The Senate Again Passes a
Free Coinage Bill.
NOTHING SHUT OUT OP THE MINTS.
Tne Measure as Radical as Words Can
Make It Hill and Cameron Vote with
the Free Silver Men and Gorman '
Against Tliem The Vote In Detail and
the Text of the Measure Kight -Hour
Bill Passed Sweeping Cut in Official
Washington', July The senate has:
again passed a free silver bill. The mat- j
U-r was taken upas soon as business beg.iu, I
yesterday on Dolpb's motion to recommit.
There was a good deal of fencing before I
a rote was obtained, and Palmer took
Occasion to say that the free coinage men '
arrogated Ui themselves all the courage.'
Palmer said he didn't believe anybody de- j
sired to shirk a vote. The trouble was'
principally over the agreement made the
other day when there was not a quorum !
in the senate to take a vote yesterday.'
fc'ome of those not present objected to such
a proceeding, and held that the agree- J
ment should not have been made, but it is
an unwritten law of the senate that when '
made such agreements must le kept.
Voted on Dolph'a Motion.
The free silver men objected to voting!
on Dolpb's motion because they held it to
be .violation of the agreement, but the1
chair (Manderson) decided that the senate j
under the rules had no power to enforce J
the agreement and that Dolph's motion j
was in order. Hill said he would vote
against the motion because he believed it
U violation of the agreement and then the
roll was called. It was not a complete test
vote by any means owing to the compliea- I
tion about the agreement and resulted
ayes, -JS; noes 1)1 rejecting the motion to '
recommit, Hut to a great extent the'
senators divided on the silver question. j
Vest Proposes the Real Test.
Then Vest moved to postpone the matter
to the first Monday in December next and I
Stewart again brought up that agreement, !
but again the chair decided the motion in
order. Blackburn moved to table Vest's I
motion and the roll was again called. The
motion to table was lost 2U to 28. A
similar vote defeated the motion to post
pone. Had Morton been in the chair the
motion to postpone would have carried.
The Bill Finally Passed.
Then the final struggle commenced on
Stewart's bill, which was made a free sil
ver bill for all the silver offered and also
amended so as to require the coinage of
all the silver in the treasury purchased
with silver certificates. So it is sufficient
ly radical. The vote on roll call stood
ayes, -29; nays, 25.

Provisions f the Proposed Faw.
LTlietextof the bill as it finally passed
and now goes to the house for concurrence
is as follows:
"That the owner of silver bullion may
deposit the same 'at any mint of the United
Sftates to be coined for his benefit, and it
shall be the duty of the proper officers,
upon the terms and conditions which are
ovided by law for the deposit and coin-
of gold, to coin such silver bullion
to the standard dollars authorized bv
e act of Feb. 28, 1K7K, entitled: 'An act
authorize the coinage of the standard
Iver dollar and to restore its legal tender
aracter, and such coins shall 1 a legal
tender for all debts and dues, public and
Repeal of the "Sherman" Law.
"That the secretary of the treasury shall
proceed to have coined all the silver bull
ion in the treasury purchased with silver
s-i heact ot July 14. 1880. entitled: 'An
t directing the purchase of silver bullion
d the issue of treasury notes thereon.
and for other purposes,' is hereby re
pealed." Free Silver Men Encouraged.
I The free silver men in the house were m
good deal encouraged by the result and '
declare that they will leave no stone un
turned to get a voteon the bill, and believe
they can pass it. The opponents of free
Coinage in the house, however, are by no
means frightened.and declare that the bill
will not come to a vote and will not pass
If it does.,
TIE EIGHT HOUR BILL.
It Prohlhlts Any Man Working More than
that Time for Uncle Sam.
Washington, Juley a. -The house yes
terday passed a bill to enforce the eight
hour law on government work. It makes
It illegal to allow a laborer or mechanic
to work more than eight a day or for the
laborer to work more than that number of
hours. Tarsney of Michigan was one
of the principal advocates of the bill. He
said that the biil would secure a practical
enforcement of the purpose intended to be
secured by the law of 1S6R, The citizen
had no natural right to demand any work
from the government and if he obtains
such work he must obtain it upon such
terms as the government saw fit to impose.
Doesn't Interfere with Rights.
As to its own work the government had
a lawful right to say that laborers thereon
should be emploved for only one hour in
the day, as it may lawiully provide that
such laborer shall work any given number
of hours; it could not compel the citizen to
enter its employ, but it might prescribe
the terms upon which he shall enter it at
H. Nor in any view was such provision
n unwarranted Interference with the nat-
ural rights of the citizen. " If the objection
were tenable then the whole fabric of leg
islation looking to the regulation of the
hours of labor would fall to the ground.
Kight Hours a Day Sufficient.
Chipman favored the bill. It was clear
ly in the interest cf the laboring classes.
Eight hours a day was sufficient for labor
ing men. More than that would make
them beasts of burdeu. Excessive labor
tended to make men discontented, unso
cia. and vicious. He believed that tne
labwer needed r.-st and family affiliation.
The measure was debated generally pro
ami con ny several members, both parties
having its advocates and opponents,
was lin.Uiy passed.

Washington', July 2. The silver bill

Hill voted for free coinage; Brice, Gor-!
man, Carlisle, Gray, McPherson, Palmer J

ing to eight the hours of laborers and me

Sticks to His Contention.

two boat races here yesterday, and the
students were wild last night. The first
race was for freshmen and was partici
pated in by Vale, Harvard and Columbia.
The word to start was given at a little
after 12 noon. The water and tide were
perfect, but it was raining hard. Yale
drew to the front from the start and
gained right along, going over the line
eight lengths ahead of Columbia, who
lead Harvard by two-and-a-half lengths

p. m. Harvard got the lead, but Yale
lead by the time 1)0 yards had been rowed,
and for fifty yards Harvard's rowing was
"rocky." Then both crews settled to their
stroke Harvard rowing faster than Yale,

at every stroke.

to the front, four lengths at the two mile
post, and there was a procession after the
three mile post had been passed, Harvard
losing her steadiness and regularity. Both
