Sherman's Bond Idea Dropped
at the House's Demand.
HOW ANTI-OPTION WAS LAID AWAY
Hatch Fails to Get a Two-Third Majority
to Suspend the Rules Vice President
Morton Offers Graceful Courtesy to
His Successor Reception to Mr. and
Mrs. Stevenson Hanchett's Appoint
ment Probably a Dead Issue No Sunday
Concert in the Pension Building.
Washington, Mar. 2. Congress did two
important things yesterday killed the anti-option
bill and the Sherman bond
amendment to the sundry civil bilL The
honse did both really, althought the senate
was ready to help to destroy its own work.
It was while discussing the po6tofflce
appropriation that Allison asked that the
conference report on the sundry civil bill
be taken up, Iliscock objecting for the
reason that he wanted it taken up on
motion, which would have displaced the
Hudson bridge bill. The chair, however,
decided that no motion was needed as the
report was privileged. Having been taken up,
Allison asked consent to consider it, and
this gave Hiscock another chance. He ob
jected; Allison had to move to consider the
report, the motion carried and the Hudson
.bridge bill lost its place.
Mierman 1'rcKrnlH the arts.
To test the sense of this Senator Allison
said he would move to recede from the
Sherman bond amendment, that being the
principal difficulty in the conference, Sher
man then said it would be well for the
record to show the facts. Xo vote on this
amendment had been taken in the house
for one thing. For the reason he offered
this amendment he sent to the clerk the
resumption act, which authorized the
treasury to sell bonds to keep up the gold
reserve. This act provides for three kinds
of bonds I per cents., running thirty
years; 4. per cents, running fifteen
years, and 5 per cents, running ten years
and these and these only could be issued in
the discretion of the secretary to keep up
he gold reserve. This was the law.
j Thought 3 Per Cent. i:ough.
. Xow, the only thing the amendment did,
said Sherman, was to add a new kind of
bond one bearing only ;i per cent, interest
and payable at the pleasure of the United
States after five years. If the government
could sell 3 per cent, bonds there was no
useselling 4, 4 or 5 per cents. That was
what the amendment meant. The incom
ing secretary of the treasury had asked for
the power this amendment gave hin.
There was absolutely nothing in the bill
except the power to the secretary to. save
m&ili wn jLcicrt in case he should .fee re
quired teeir'taHda.-v;..x - " ' '
There was eonie'more' pcakthg. but
finayr on the ground that the house
domaiised it. the amendment was receded
For-IitliWM:d at Committee Meeting.
This actirtu ,wM, foreshodowed at the
meeting of the senate riuance committee in
the morning. At this "meeting there was
4ot that unanimity of sentiment that
moved the committee when with one nega
tive vote it decided to report favorably the
fheruian bond amendment, after Carlisle
had appeared before it and urged that such
a report be made. It was apparent that
certain Democratic memliers had been
made cognizant of the fsct that the incom
ing -administration believed it could get
alone without the bond amendment and
that it was unwilling to jeopardize the ap
propriation bills by insisting upon the bond
proposition. ' . ''
Carlisle Could Have His Will.
This view of the case was corroborated
after the meeting of the committee by one
of the leading Democratic members, who
said teat a number ol Democrats had vot
ed for the amendment only for the reason
that they had been informed that Carlisle,
who wf s to be the successor of Secretary
Foster, wanted it enacted. If Carlisle now
thought that such a policy was unneces
sary these same Democrats and many oth-
others to say nothing of Republicans
would vote to recede fro n the senate
endment when it came bark to thom

he senator said, however, that, he knew
thing concerning Carlisle's change of
pbucy save the reports in the papers, but
ibut 11 they were correct Carlisle's wishes
f&old -be ibeyed. The discussion in the
dtmamittee was quite spirited and it is said
tjbmt both Shtrman and Morrill deprecated

that toWtb'be considered as receding from

that he could pass the anti-optioh brU a.A'd
as the result of its application bisliopes
were wrecked. He took an early oppor
tunity yesterday to move a suspension of
the rules for the consideration of the bill.
A ote on t he motion was ordered and
half, an hour's debate allowed. Hender
son of Iowa said the farmers were intelli
gent, , knew w hat they wanted, wanted
anti-ojition and ought to have it

Taylor of Illinois agreed w ith the gentle
rruui.tbat the farmer was an intelligent
msu, and if lie were intelligent he did not
nejpd this legislation to protect him. There
was not 10 per cent, of the farmers in favor
of this bill. Cummings of New York char
acterized the bill as one that swept over
all stat lines and proposed to give the
government of the United States the power
to interfere with individual contracts in
the states. Hatch briefly closed the de
bate, declaring that if the bill was defeated
it would come tip again and finally win.
The vote was then taken and resulted

MORTON ENTERTAINS STEVENSON.
The Vice President Smashes Tradition In
the Hest Kind of Taste.
Washington', March 2. The reception
tendered last night by Vice President and
Mrs. Morton to Vice President-elect and
Mrs. Stevenson, at their residence on Scott
circle, marked another deviation by Mr.
Morton from the traditions surrounding
his position. It was an unprecedented
thing for the outgoing vice president to be
stow any recognition, official or social,
upon his successor, the exchange of such
compliments having heretolore been con
fined to the occupants of the presidential
chair; but when the cards were issued, giv
ing notification of the vice president s in
tention thus to honor his successor, it was
felt to be a gracious and proper courtesy.
Had Been Good Friends in Congress.
But the inspiration of the affair was
more than purely official. Morton had
served in the house of representatives of
the Forty-sixth congress with Stevenson,
and ever since there has existed between
them a sincere mutual esteem and regard
In anticipation of the event the elegant
mansion had been decorated with palms,
ferns, foliage plants, and cut flowers Mr.
and Mrs.- Morton received their guests in
the doorway separating the fwrior from
the corridor out cf which rues the grand
staircase and wha h occupied the center of
the west end of the house. At their side
Moon Mr. andMrs. Stevenson, to whom the
passing throng were introduced in turn by
Nearly 'Everybody" Was There.
It was a distinguished and representa
tive gathering that greeted the new official
and his wife. The invitations cumbered
i(Ki, and but few of the recipients failed to
respond in ptrscn; but there was no crush
to interfere with the full enjoyment of
the event by all present. There were the
members of the senate, almost en masse-
with whom Stevenson will be so intimately
associated the next four years: members of
.the cabinet, assistant secretaries of the de
partments, beads of the bureaus, the New
York and Illinois delegations in the house
of representatives, the justices of the su
preme court of the Ucited States and of
the District of Columbia and court of
claims, the diplomatic corps in all the
brilliancy of the insignia of their several
orders and honors, the heads of the army
ami navy and a cootl snnnklinir of the sub

An Executive Session Held I'nder ai
Agreement with the Hen 'rats.
Washington, March 2. After three in
effectual attempts to get an executive ses
sion the Republicans were successful yes
terday, the understanding being, however,
that nothing of a disputed character should
be considered. Accordingly, when Sher
man made the motion there was no opposi
tion. The session lastad for half an hour.
and our effort was made to reconsider
the vote by which the nomination of Mr.
John V.L. frindlay, of Maryland, to be
Chilian arbitrator, was rejected. The effort
was not a very hearty one and met with
Not a Republieaa Fight, Anyhow.
1 lie 1-U-pu lil icans looked upon the mat
ter as something for the Democrats to set

though nominated by Harrison they said
he was opposed by the Maryland delega
tion and they were willing to let it go at
that and permit Cleveland to make the
selection for the office. The result being
apparent it is said that no formal vote
.was taken and the rejection of the nom
mee was subsequently made public. The
tacit agreement regarding disputed nom
inations did nut prevent the preliminary
steps being taken in the Hanthett nomina
Made It s Party Ouestion.
As soou as the executive session began
this nomination was referred to the judi
ciary committee, and before it was over
the committee held a meeting on the floor
and by a ttnet party vote reported the
nomination favorably. Of course this was
a far as the matter could proceed yester
