PATTISON CALLED ON TO EXPLAIN.
A Change of Opinion Since the Last Session
That Mothers His Colleague and Jerry
Simpson Vest Questioned by Hoax and
rainier in the Senate Yoorhces Has a
Bill to Relieve the Stringency Capital
Wasuigton, Aug. 15. It was going in
both houses yesterday the oratory on the
silver question, principally kept going by
the Democrats ami the incidents of inter
est being supplied by the colloquies that
took place between members of the major
ity. In the house there was another slim
attendance, but the leaders on loth sides
were there: Boatner, Warner (Dem.) of
New York, Layton (Dem.) of Ohio, Pat
terson (Dem.) of Tennessee, Simpson of
Kansas, Snodgrass (Dem.) of Tennessee,
Bailey of Texas, Pendleton of West Vir
ginia, Lacey (Rep.) of Iow a, and Hutch
inson of Texas all took part in the taik
and Patterson had quite a time with his
colleague Snodgrass and Simpson, the
Kansas Populi. t.
Patterson Had Changed His Views.
Simpson be -an the business of badgering
Patterson, who was advocating dollars, of
whatever metal, of equal bullion value,
and opposing consequently any ratios be
low that which would make the silver and
gold dollar equal. Simpson interrupted
and read a free coinage speech ma.Ic hy
Patterson nt the last session of congress,
and asked him to reconcile that speech
with this. Patterson plied that he had
modified his views; heliad gone lefore his
people and told them that he had so modi
fied them; he hail been re elected. "Con
sistency," said C'arlyle, "is the hobgoblin
of legal minds."
Simpson Then the gentleman admits
that he was in the error.
Then Snoditrass (Di-mncmt. nf T,.nn.
see), also interr pted his colleague with
the question: "When (imvpr f -f el.n.l
ws a candidate for the nomination, vnn
knew all these things, did you not?" And
i'atterson admitted that he did.
I'rlvate Conversations Marred.
Then Snodgrass tried to force an ad
mission from Patterson that the latter
had been a Hill man and had talked to
Snodgrass in Hill's interest, but Patterson
refused to hear what he was alleged to
have said, declaring, "I shall not lcfer on
this fl. or to any private conversation
which occur ed between mv rnllenune
and myself. My colleague shall not
draw me into a private conversation
which occurred between gentlemen. I
am not doing my duty hero because I was
for Grover Cleveland or anybody else; I
am speaking here for a principle."
Bailey of Texas was for Bland's bill.
He vas in favor of paying the public debt
in "dad's" dollars. Still he would not
vote 'to coin dollars of unequal value,
holdfng-that free coinage would result in
parity of value regardless of ratio.
A Republican Rings In the Tariff.
Pendleton of West Virginia, favored the
Wilson bill and Lacey of Iowa, would not
repeal the Sherman act until there were
$700,000,000 silver dollars in circulation,
but his remarks were mostly devoted to
the claim that the financial trouble was
caused by the threat of "tariff tinkering"
resulting from the last national election.
Warner of New York defended the cham
ber of commerce at New York city and
said its members were not bankers, but
business men whose relation to the banks
was the same as it was to the business
men of the west and south. He was for
the Wilson bill.
VEST TACKLES THE TOPIC.
He Has Colloquies with Hoar and Palmer
The feature in tha senate wns Vest's
speech and bis colloquies with with Hoar
and Palmer. Vest read the platforms of
the Democrats and Republicans to show
that both parties were agreed in favor of
bimetallism. He then jum ed on the Sher
man law. He had advocated Cleveland's
election because Cleveland accepted a
nomination on a bimetallic platform. Ho
did not say Cleveland was a mono-metal-list,
but his message was most significant
in what it failed to say. He antagonized
the clarm that silver fluctuated more than
gold and read a paper by Mouteith Doug
lass, of London, which essayed to prove
that silver fluctuated less than gold.
Quest ionedby t-partor Hoar.
Hoar took up a remark of Vest about it
being the policy of Great Britain to have
a single gold standard as being to the ad
vantage of the wealthy and commercial
classes, and asked whether such a policy
was not to the disadvantage of the poorer
classes.and whether therefore it was to the
interest of England to keep the single
staudard. Vest replied that that question
was far wide of the real issue.
Hoar I understood the senator to argue
that a single gold standard increased the
burden of the dehtor classes.
Vest I do Bay that emphatically.
Hoar He says that, if he were an Eng-
lisbman, he would be in favor of the gold
standard. That is an important declara
tion coming from a senator who ha1) such
relations to the financial policy of the
country, because it is equivalent to a
declaration that, under the circumstances
we will never be able to induce England to
agree with other nations for the establish
ment of bimetallism.
Legislation Is All Powerful.
After replying to Hoar Vest said that
overproduction had not cheapened silver,
it was legislation, and it was only neces
sary for the United States to fix a policy
of free silver and the metal would rise.
Then Palmer of Illinois became interroga
tor. He asked: "Would the repeal of the
Sherman act bring the country to a gold
Vest I think it would. If the Sherman
act be repealed not another silver dollar
will be coined in this country.
Palmer How does the Sherman law aid
Vest I do not think that it does aid free
Palmer Then why not repeal itr
- Vest I,am willing ,to have it repealed
but'l 06 Cot waul us repeal liiade a stalk
ing horse for monometallism.
Pleads for the Western States.
He made a plea for silver because It was
1 . . . 1. . 1 . . ., , . I
a prouucfa in iue west sou 10 Binge 1C
do i was to strike down the western
p.ople. Said he: They hare built up a
silver miulng industry on the faith pledged
to tliera by the people or the United States
in the constitution and laws that the pro
duct of those mines (.ball be considered aa
i. money metal. And we are now as&ea
through the financial 'Four Hundred of
New York and the commercial classes of
Kngland to Vetray these people and say to
them, 'Find something else to do. We
want gold, gold, gold.' No, Mr. Presi
dent, I will tot do it. If the time comes
when I find that I have made a mistake I
can at least have the consolation of know
ing that my bc.-trt and my head both ap
prove the action which I propose to take
in regard to this measure."
CHARGES IT TO TARIFF REFORM.
Mitchell of Oregon Offers an Amendment
to Vest's Resolution.
Washington, Aug. 34. Senator Mitch
ell, of Oregon, introduced in the senate a
resolution in the nature of an amendm ut
to the resolution offered by Vest last week
to maintain the parity of gold and silver.
The resolution declares it to be the sense
of the senate and house that no change be
made in the tariff laws during the Fifty-
third congress. A preamble to the resolu
tion recites that the American policy of
protection has rapidly advanced the
United States from the poorest and weak
est to the richest and most powerful
among civilized nations, and that the mere
probability of a change of our customs rev
enue laws in accordance with the declara
tion of the late Democratic platform has
plunged the country ii.pu its present un
fortunate industrial Rnd financial condi
tion, resulting in closing factories, stop
ping the wheels of industrial interprises.

In the house the committees on enrolled
bills, accounts, and mileage were an
nounced, and then the silver debate was
resumed, the speeches beiug made princi
pally by Democrats and on both sides of

It Was a Lie on Carlisle.
Washington, Aug. 15. Springer has
seen Secretary Carlisle in reference to a
dispatch from Deer Patk which imputed
to Carlisle the statement that Speaker

on ways and means. Carlisle authorized

any such statement at Deer Park or any
where else to any one.
