v"A8HrNGTOxj . Feb. 7. Senator Hill
opened the fiybt on the Sherman silver bill
yesterday. As soon as the routine business
of the senate was concluded he arose to
Submit some remarks on "what is known
as the silver question." lie said that when
the Sherman act was passed, two and a
kalf years as?o he had been exceedingly
hocked and Manned; and that four
months before his election to the senate he
had gone to the city of New York and there
publicly taken issue agrinst the principle of
the policy embodied in that law, endeavor
ing to arouse public sentiment that would
demand its repeal. So that instead of I
silence and apathy there was now in Xew
Tork an entire unanimity in favor of the
repeal of the Sherman act
Why He Wants the Law Repealed.
He quoted from the platforms of the two
great national parties at Chicago and Min
neapolis, both of which, he said, demand
ed the nse of both gold and silver as stand
ard money. It was his duty, he said, to
the city and state of New York to ask in
their behalf the immediate, unconditional
repeal of the Sherman law, which repeal
would bring a season of financial calm in
stead of a widespread fear of a monetary
panlo. It was his highest duty (consider
ing the state of opinion in the senate), with
respectful deference to his colleagues of
both parties in whose hands were wisdom
and decision, to advance and substantiate
One controlling reason for the repeal of the
Sherman act, and that was that its repeal
was a necessary, safe and (for the day)
sufficient step toward free bi-metallic coin
age. Asks a Con pie of Qnestlous.
The interest of New York in the gold and
silver question was identical with the in
terest of every other state; but the renl
commnnity of interest between the money
metal states and every other state was
likewise undeniable. Silver purchases, he
said, could never prove their professed ob
ject. It was clear that silver purchases
were the polar opposite of free silver coin
age. I5ut they were worse than opposite.
They were effective contraries to free bi
metallic coinage, whether they were mined
or not. What earthly relation, he asked,
had the purchaseof silver to its parity with
gold, or what earthly relation had the pur
chase of gold to its parity with silver.
Explains the Movement of Gold.
Four years, ago, he said, the treasury
tad $218,000,000 in gold; now that sum
bad dwindled to $100,000,000. A revival of
the Bland-Allison act would keep up the
shrinkage. The Sherman law was under
mining the power of the treasury, if not to
continue the discharge of the national
debt, at least to meet the parity obligation
of the government, and was operating an
normoua shrinkage in the business of
the country and its total circulating
medium. Bliubt of, enterprise, the dread
of financial disaster arid consequent shrink
age had caused the export of gold. What
. other part of American currency, he anted,
bad been exported?
, Conies Out for Free Coinage.
Everything had been done during the
last nineteen years except the old and only
coupling of the two metals by free coinage.
When free bimetallic coinage ceased in
1873 parity ceased, and the gold half of
the world's money became dislocated from
the silver balf. When' their coupling
would be renewed' .their Btabla parity
would be renewed. Nothing could estab
lish parity except free bimetallic coinage,
that which had created and maintained
their parity in the past. He should prefer
that solution of the question to any en-
suggesuons ot senator on trie otnerslde
who wished to be heard, at which there was
a chorus of Republican "No, no, no. Not
on this side."
Hill 1 move that the bill be made the

A Tote Finally Keached.
Morgan wanted to go on with the Indian
bill. Uorman projioseti to agree that the

senate was finally forced to go on rtcord

Bat Is Whisky Trust Tanglefoot this Sort
of Firew ter T
WASHINGTON, Feb. 7. Yesterday's ses
sion of the sub-commi ;te of the house
judiciary committee investigating the
whisky trust was devoted to watching ex
periments by Mr. Veizey in producing
liquors by adulteration. By the use of essen
tial oil.essences and cob 'ring matter he pro
duced in a few minutes whiskies.rams and
gins similar to those which were placed on
the market and sold as pure goods. The
basis for his products w as an orderless and
colorless liquid, known to the trade as
"spirits." It was worth about $1.30 per
Rig Money in Snch Drinks.
By the use of comix unds worth about
1i cents he produced a gallon of liquor
that would sell for as high as $4. The
production of adulters ed goods represent
ed one-half of the liq lor business of the
country. By misrepresentation these
goods were worked up in the entire trade
of the country. Mr. Veazey urged that
certain witnesses (no names given) be
called as soon as possib .e, as some of them
would find it more convenient to be in
Europe than before tht committee, if they
were given time.
Congressional Doings Briefed.
Washington, Feb. 7. After routine
business yesterday the senate listened to
Hill give his views on s lver. He came out
squarely in favor of free bimetallic coinage,
but failed to state at what ratio. He
moved that the Shern an act repeal bill
be taken up aid the m tion was defeated
23 to 42. The car coupl ;r bill was then con
sidered for a time, but without action. The
senate spent the remain ier of theday in exe
cutive session. Duringtl.e session the senate
passed the Indian bili and the quarantine
bill senate substitute for house bill and
asked a conference.
Under the filibustei ing operations of
Kilgore the house again demonstrated

LINCOLN, Neb.. Feb 7. The Republi
cans announced in the senate yesterday
that they would get together , and elect J.
Sterling Morton as United States senator.
The Democrats and the Independents tried
to prevent them from leaving the chamber
to caucus for that purpose, but when they
found this a hopeless task they went to
work with a vim during the absence of the
Republican senators. Every bill favorable
to the Republicans wa3 indefinitely post
pnneded and will take a week for the Repub
cans to find out what has become of their
pet measures. A resolution objecting to
the repeal of the Sherman silver purchase
set and requesting the Nebraska represen
tatives in congress to vote against the pro
posed repeal was adopted unanimously
smid yells. At the joint convention the
Republicans cast 61 votes for Thurston.
Democrats Send an Ultimatum.
The reason the Republicans were so
anxious to go into caucus was the follow
ing communication signed by the five
Democrats who prevented Allen's election
last Saturday. The communication is
dated Feb. 6, and says: "We, the under
signed, hereby announce and declare our
purpose to vote for W. V. Allen for United
States senator on the fir.t ballot, Feb. ,
1!3, and thereby secure his election, unless
before the convening of the joint conven
tion enough Republicans agree to assist in
the election of a Democrat; the Republic
ans so agreeing to name either James R.
Boyd or J. Sterling Morton." The signa
tures are: John Mattes, John Sinclair, W.
N. Babcock, C. 11. Wiihuell, and J. E.
Took Thurston Into Connultation.
John M. Thnrston was invited into the
Republican caucus and made a statement
confirming the above, behaving been in
terviewed by certain memliers, both Re
publicans and Democrats, who stated the
fact that the Democrats would present
their ultimatum. Later he was given the
ultimatum in writing and promised to lay
it before the caucus. He had no sugges
tions to offer, except that the action be the
result of thought, patriotism and honor.
Gave Them One More Day.
Following this statement the question of
continuing Thurston as a candidate was
argued pro and con. Finally, as a pledge
was forthcoming from the five Democrats,
Babcock, Mattes. North, Sinclair and
Whitnell, to give the Republicans one
more day, the caucus adjourned, with the
understanding that another meeting
would be held before the vote today. The
meeting was held last night and it was re
solved that Thurston should be dropped,
and the full vote of the party will be given
Paddock at today's ballot. If this pro
gramme is carried out and the five Demo
crats adhere to their declaration of yester
day it will result in the election of Judge
Allen, the Populist candidate.

New York, Feb. 7. Cooper Union was

Bepeal the Sherman Law and Free
Coinage Is Here. Says Hill.
People did not half realize the over
whelming power of the United States. By
means of free bimetallic coinage the
United States had been able to confer upon
all nations the boundless benefits of the
gold of California, and by means of it
again the United States would be able
to confer upon all nations the unbounded
benefits of the silver and gold of Colorado,
Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona.
The time for conference was past; the time
for independent action bad coma The re
peal of the Sherman law was, in his opin
ion, the only action needed to test and ful
fill the endeavor to reach free bimetallic
coinage by the route of an internatianal
agreement. That was the point on which
all his remarks were meant to converge.
