No Repeat of the Sherman Act

Debate ot the Subject The Repeal Bill
Recommitted The Bale Committee's
Proposal Denounced as the " Way Bow

pion the Two Causes and Make "Salty"
Washington, Feb. 10. Immediately
after the reading and approval of the
Journal In the house yesterday Catchings
called up the resolution of the committee
on rules setting apart "this legislativs day" j that the so-called Sherman act was a com
for the consideration of the bill repealing 1 promise measure intended to stay, for the
Applause. J He defied the bouse to de
monetize silver ant go back to the in
famous legislation of 1873.
Took Advantage of Springer.
Springer said be would vote against tbe
previous question. He had voted for clot
ure. This was tbe first time the house had
an opportunity to carry out a pledge of the
Democratic national platform. "Where is
tbe tariff?"' snouted Bland, but this was
mean of him as Springer's time was up.
Bryan opposed cloture and believed in
banging to the Sherman act if it was
Republican child" and a makeshift; Demo
crat would bold the child as hostage until
thel ow n was returned and a makeshift
temporarily took the place of the real arti
cle. The repeal bill was taking from a man
who was fighting the weapon he used and
giving him no other.
Reed Has Something to Say,
Taylor of Chicago said he thought the
bill had better sleep until brought before
the house at the dictation of the next pres
ident. Then Reed took the floor, lie said

the Sherman silver act Bacon, chairman
of the committee on banking and currency,
took the floor. The house, he said, was
well informed as to the nature of tbe bill
proposed to be considered. The main pur
pose ot the bill was that the purchase of
silver bullion and the storing of it in the
vaults of the treasury as a commodity in
metallic form and without coinage should
Not the Sort of Rule Wanted.
The rule as reported by the committee on
rules was in the form which that commit
tee at this congress had invariably used for
the purpose of bringing important meas
ures before the house. And that form of
rule bad always proved to be ineffectual.
flie le3son which the house had learned on
the bankruptcy bill ought not to be for-
zotten. There was no phase of the silver
question that needed discussion. There
was no phase of it that had not
been exploited. The discussion of the '
bill could serve no useful purpose ur
less tbe house finally came to a vote. He
would, if the previous question were voted
down, offer an amendment providing for a
cloture. As the clerk read the proposed
amendment it was greeted with loud applause.
The Way How Not to Do It.
This amendment, said Bacon, had been
prepnared in deference to the views and
experience of that eonnd Democrat, the
gentleman from Missouri (Bland), and wt.s
an exact copy of the resolution which that
gentleman had . desired to offer in July
last. It was substantially the rule which
was reported to the house by such sound
Democrats as Mills of Texas and Randall,
and by such a good Republican as Reed of
Maine. It presented no novel proposition.
He gave notice now understanding it to
be tbe purpose of tbe committee on rules
to demand the previous question on the
adoption of the rule that gentlemen who
desired to come to a vote on the bill must
vote against that demand. And particu
larly he said, to those gentlemen who
united in a desire to put an end to this ru
inous practice of purchasing silver as bull
ion and keeping it as bullion, to vote
against ordering tbe previous question.
Was Dead Certain of It.
A vote for t he previous question was a
vote for th death of the bill. A vote
against the previous question would meet
with the approval of the committee on
"How do yon know that ?" shouted Pierce,
one of the most intense silver men.
Bacon replied that he needed no author
ity to make the statement. He knew that
it was correct. Tbe committee on rules
was not seeking to prevent the previous
question being voted down; and the rejec
tion of the previous qnestion would be no
affront to the members of that committee.
He insisted that the house should at this
time fairly and squarely meet the question
and not waste time in idle discussion. Any
man who voted for the previous question
voted to allow the country to go on in this
foolish purchase of silver.
time being, a strong feeling which existed
on the part of a good many citizens in favor
of the free coinage of silver. The house
was now to perform an act which would
have a certain moral influence, though
probably not a legislative influence; be
cause there was another body whose rules
were such that deliberation went on until
deliberation ceased to be an absolute and
unqualified advantage to the community,
Some Unkindly Sympathy.
The gentleman from Nebraska (Bryan)
he sympathised with. That gentleman
bad been in the habit of listening to the'
shoutings of the Democratic party in favor
of "free stiver" and the "good of the peo
ple." Now the gentleman found that in
power the Democratic party had not
obeyed the everlasting laws of common
sense. Laughter. When the Democrats
were in a minority they could throw their
limbs about in all sorts of contortions;
they could look any way that they thought
beautiful. Laughter But when they
came into power they had to act accordir- s
to the eternal verities; and it was going .o
be a great shock to the gentleman on every
HOW THE MEMBERS VOTED.
Means to leave tbe silver question ior vne
incoming administration to deal with. Cox
then moved to recommit tbe resolution to
the committee on rules, and on A standing
vote this was agreed to 150 to 83. The re
mittal of the report is regarded as an end
of the silver question for this congress.
Called the Republican! a Mob.
Topek A, Kan., Feb. 10. A resolution
was offered in the Populist house Wednes
day declaring the Republicans' bouse or
ganisation a mob and instructing the ser-geant-at-arms
to put its officers out of the
ball. It went over under the rules. As a
reply a resolution was. introduced yester
day in tbe Republican bouse declaring
vacant all the Populist seats, alleging
that they had not qualified as members of
tbe legal house.The Republican speaker was

yesterday was the amendment of tbe car
coupler bill so as to require all railways
by Jan. 1, 1K to have their cars equipped
with automatic couplers and with "greb

motion for a previous question on a vote

ground that the purpose of the rule was
to defeat the repeal bill. Tbe bill was then

SILVER GENERAL BLAND'S DEFI.
Repeal lulcwt for Something Better
From the Silver Standpoint.
Bland the general of the silver forces
replied to Bitcon. He said that the bill
professed to carry out the declarations of
the Democratic platform a platform
which demar led the repeal of the "Sher
man law." This name was a misnomer.for
Sherman never liked the bill himself and
was now trying to have it repealed. This
was one good reason why a .Democratic
house should stand by it and sustain it.
Tbe proposed bill was a monstrosity, yield
ing to tbe national banks further privileges
and defeating tbe monetization of silver in
behalf of gold gamblers and speculators.
When she Democratic party went before
the prsffls tt said that tbe silver question
was notjrtop in comparison with the tariff
question. The latter was the overshadow
ing paramount issue which tbe people had
A Committee That Subsided.
But as soon as tbe election was over
nothing was heard of tbe committee on
ways and means; it had absolutely sub
sided, laughter. Tariff bad been rele
gated to the rear. The Democratic party
had betrayed every promise made to the
American people on the tariff and silver
questions, and np to this moment the peo
ple had been deceived in tbe last election.
Laughter and applause). It had promised
first of all a reduction of the tariff, and had
sent the silver question to the rear. Let
tbe silver question go until the tariff was
Nothing Fneertaln About Bland.
There was no band in all in this govern
ment strong enough to thrust this matter
in the house and to keep the Democratic
party from uniting on the silver qnestion;
nor was there a band in the government
Btrong enough to compel the repeal of this
law until some other measure was insti
tuted equally satisfactory or better to take
its place. Applause. And be gave no
tice that the Democratic party might be
disrupted and all reforms might be defeat
ed, but no proposition solely in favor of
Wall street could pass a Democratic
house. Applause. No threat would de
ter the friends of silver from the perform
ance of their duty on this floor. His east
ern Democratic friends were thrusting this
matter into the face of the Democrats of
the west and south. They could continue
to thrust the qnestion until they made a
division here that would never be healed.
Jmt Nine Majority for the Previous
Question Bill Shelved.
Catchings (Dem.) closed the debate with
a statement that the committee on rules
would not be affronted by any action which
tbe house might take upon Its report. The
roll-call was taken on ordering the previous
question. The interest was intense, and
many members followed the cal! with tally.
