?lay Orate a Little on Silver.
The finance committee will probably
wait upon the action of the caucus com
mittee and so the silver quest ion is not
likely to figure in a formal way in the pro
ceedings of the senate this week. It is
entirely possible and even probable, that
speeches will be delivered n;ion the sub
ject, but if so, they will te delivered upon
some such resolution us that introduced
by Senator l.odjre, calling for a repeal of
the silver purchase section of the Sherman
act, und not upon n bill regularly reported
from the finance committee and ready for
immediate uclion. There is a stimg dis
position in some quarters to fill in the
time during the house discussion by de
bating the Lee Mantle case.
Little Interest Id the Hons.
The clasm that members of the house
have made up their minds and that talk
on the sdver question is wasted time re
ceived continuation on the second day of
the debate, fir there was an array of
empty seats thr.t showed how little the
memliers cared to hear what was said. The
notable speech was inrid.- by llarter, who
is strot:ly anti-silvor. He took the ground
that the question was not political and
disclaimed any idea of paitisanship in
discussing it. Hut the Republicans were
not willing to let it go ut that. They
tried to get the orator to state the position
of the Democracy ou the question, with lit
Make a Mnlical Illuftt ration.
He said that if he had come to the Capi
tol and fniuid in the gutter a man in the
last states of nl oholism that man would
have been taken to a hospital and hU
treatment would have been agreed upon
by competent physicians. Hut if that
drunken man was taken to this house there
would have been a difference of opinion. The
doctor from Maryland (liayuer) would
have said further alcohol should be kept
from him; that he needed good nursing
and possibly the gold cure. Laughter.
Hut the doctor lrom Missouri (Bland)
would look at the case from anotherstand
point, and would say thai the man needed
more alcohol. Here was Uncle Sam in a
condition in which he had never before ap
peared before the nations of the world. At
a time when he should be erect aud pros
perous, Uncle Sam was in an almost coma
llcuhlican(t Ask Som Questions.
As llarter went on Ilepublicans began to
ply him with questions. Henderson of
Iowa wanted to know how the Sherman
act was Hissed and llarter said by a He
publican house and senate and approved
by a Republican president. Henderson
then wanted to know the attitude of the
Democracy at the time of the passage of
the act, mid llarter trusted to the good
temper of the house to keep the question
out of politics. Henderson said of course,
"Let us be good tempered, but let us be
honest." llarter hoped he would be per
mitted to go on with the thread of his re
marks, and tl-en complimented Sherman.
The Ohio Stutesmaii a ISencfartor.
He said that Scuater Sherman, instead
of being abused, ought to have the grate
ful thanks of the whole jieople because he
got the lwst there was to be obtained for
the country out of a bad situation, which
had leen brought on by the Republican
platform and the election of a Republican
president. Having thus dropped into pol
itics Henderson took advantage of the
lapse aud pressed his question ns to the
atti: title of the Democracy at the time the
Sherman bill was passed. "Free coinage,"
siiomed several mem lien on the Demo
cratic si(ie,and II nderson.snyiug "There is
an honest answer," hoped Harter would be
Staiuls on the National I'latforui.
Hiuter said that he would answer as a
matter of courtesy, although it broke the
thread of his argument. The national
platform of the Democratic party had not
beeu favorable to the free coinage of sil
ver; nor hail it charged the Republicans
with being favorable to the demonetiza
tion of silver. The Democrats nominated
a man radically opposed to circulating as a
dollar any coin worth less than 100 cents.
Republicans knew whnt kind of man they
nominated. He did not wish to proceed
further in political discussion.

XeV Yohk, Au;t. 14. A special from
Richmond, Ya., to the Sun says: Mr. H.
O. Johnson, of Brooklyn, just arrived
here, says that", wliile aloaril the steamer
coming from Baltimore to Richmond he
had a fellow passenger, a gentleman of
more than ordinary intelligence, who had
lost his arms ia an accident, both being
cut olT about two incites below the elljow.
Mr. Johnson's companion said that the ob
ject of his trip to Richmond was to see
Dr. Hunter Mc-'uirc about petting him
self a pair of new arms. Having a loundles
faith in the possibilities of modern science,
he had conceived the idea of replacing his
Convicts Will Provide the Arms.
He had consulted a number of surgeons
in New Y.irk as tc the feasibility of his
theory but, ivithone exception, he received
no encour igement. He had also been in
correspondence for some time with Dr.
McGuire, who was inclined to take a more
hopeful view of the rse than the New
York surgeons. He said he found two life
convicts in Sing Sing prison who con
sented to part, one with his right, the
other with his left forearm, in considera
tion of regaining their lilerty. He laid
his case Leii re. Governor Flower and suc
ceeded in prevailing upon the governor to
pardon the two convicts when the condi
tions specified have leen complied with.
Gov. Flower Will Say No dung.
The man without arms then went on to
say that he was on his way to meetDr.
McGuire and hoped to arrange with the
surgeon to iwrform the operation of graft
ing on the stubs of his arms the forearms
of the convicts. He was confident that the
operation, if skillfully performed, would
lie successful. Dr. McGuire was Stone
wall Jackson's surgeon and is known as
one of the best surgeons of the south. He
is now at the Warm Springs. Governor
Flower was questioned about this story,
bat would neither affirm nor deny it.

State Commissioners Ask Judgment on
LxhtbitA, Bat Are Refused.
Chicago, Aug. 14. The World's fair
state commissioners have asked the na
tional commission to permit exhibits in
the state buildings to be judged for awards
and been refused. Commissioner St.
ClaiF said that it was not only a plain vio
lation of the laws of the commission, but
would be unfair to the exhibitors in the
department buildings. The law was
adopted two years ago and was well ad
vertised. The ladies commission, having
no business to transact, has ndjourned un
til Sept. 20. Another reason for adjourn
ment was the news from Washington that
no more vouchers would be paid for ex
penses. Last week was the banner week for at
tendance. The week closed Saturday with
a paid attendance for the day of 14S,4-J7.

natural outgrowth of the holy father's so

sympathy for every effort made tojiignify
simple manhood aud to promote the moral
