whose duties brinn him into daily commu

promptly ami very earnestly replied:
"Veto it. The country need have nndouM
of that. He believes that uticomlirionnl
repeal is th-. only thine to cure the coun
try of its present fiii.-Micm' ills. I!ut let
me tell you the president has no idea of
being compelled to use his veto. He be
lieves. I believe, every one who is not
frightened by this cry of the free silver
men believes that the el -use will be un
conditionally repea'ed.' -
Two Kinds of I'ropliet.
The free silver men are stili i-l:iimin
that they will have a walkaway w hen the
unconditional icpeal bill comes to a vote.
They bcirnn when they arrived at the
opening of the session a d have kept it up
ever since. The supporters of the repeal
bill are not at all frightened. They believe
that the bill will be passed. This In-lief is
held by repealing Republicans ns well a
by Democrats. Senetor Washburn. of
Minnesota, said that nt leisst fifty senators
are ready to vote for unconditional repoHl
whenever Hie time for voting arrives. So
the render is nt liberty to choose bit
prophet and compare predictions with the
roll-nil 1 when the vote is taken.
Hehnte Corn on in the House.
The debate on the question went on in
the house, nt:d Blanchard declared that
the Wilson liiil could not pass if either the
Democratic or Republican platform meant
anything. Ix-cause the Wilson bill meant a
gold standard nncl those platfprniR were
for bimetallism, tirosvenor said that if
the debate t as partisan the reason .would
be found in the president's message
wUjch declared the Republicans responsible
fo?the present condition of thing. Tiie
real responsibility lay with the Democrats,
for it was their threat of "tariff reform"
that was t he cause of the trouble.
l'ajrs His Kespert to I'altprnon.
Snoilgrass of Tennessee advocated free
coinage of silver. He criticised the stand
taken by his colleague Patterson against
free coinage, and contrasted his speech
of Monday with those made by him dur
ing the last congress. What new light
had broken in upon the vision of his col
league? He (Suodgrass) would not change
his convictions-. Not even a letter from
Whitney could drive him from the sup
port of the people on thia floor. His col
league had broken the record more times
than any other man he knew of. He (Pat
terson) would have great trouble in satis
fying his people as to his change of fnnt,
even if he ate two dinners and smoked
two cigars every evening. Laughter'
GORDON OFFERS A PALLIATIVE.
lie Want the State Hank Tax Suspended
for Six Months.
In the senate the first contribution to
congressional financial literature was
made by Gordon of Georgia. He intro
duced a bill to suspend the tax on state
bank currency for six months and said it
would end the panic in fifteen days. It
would enable the banks of Savannah, for
instance, to issue for the time being their
Individual notes to be used as money, and
these wonld move the cotton crop and
atart the wheels of commerce, in the
southern states. The bill was referred to
the finance committee.
Voorhees reported favorably his bill to
allow banks to issne currency to the par
value of their bonds, stating thnt he be
lieved it would increase the currency to
the amount of fifty or sixty millions. He
wanted it considered at once, but Cockrell
objected, saying that a number of senators
desired to lie heard on the bill. He de
clared that we have just as much money
in the country as we ever had. He would
"never, never" give his consent to a bill
that gave national banks the control of
the paper money of the country. Voorhees
gave notice that he would move today to
put the bill on its passage.
Lodge t her made a speech on his reso
lution calling for a bill from the finance
committee at once to repeal the Sherman
act. He said that nearly all the mills in
New Kngland were idle and that while
there was such a state of affairs be be
lieved in no delay. Action was necessary.
If the country was to have free coinage
let the country know it; if it was to have
a limited coinage let the country
know it; and if there was to be an uncon
ditional repeal of the silver act let the
country kuow it.
Wolcott intimated that all the differ
ence politically between Lodge and Cleve
land would be removed if Cleveland
would frame an election law to meet
Lodge's views. He denied that the Sher
man law had done any harm. Its beauty
from 'Wolcott's standpoint was that it
gove a quasi recognition of silver.
Tbo discussion in Lodge's resolution
closed with Wolcott's speech and Hoar
made a long argument in favor of
bimetallism but against free coinage. He
aid that every demagogu in public office
or seeker of public office, every
theorist desiring to get notoriety by
extravagance, every anonymous and
reckless scribbler who escapes contempt
only by concealing his personality, every
agitator who would marshal class against
daw. ever anarchist who seeks to over-
tuXm siJCial "oruL-r, every brawler who
would stir the passions o: section against
section, of laboi against capital, of debtor
against creditor, of the poor against the
rich, prates glibly about t he currency and
uses some misrepresentation of sophistry
altout the currency as h:s weapon of mis
chief. Vet nothing is more c rtain than that a
disturbance ot the currency is an advantage
only to t tie classes who are so attacked,
and brings nothing but4.'"il and disaster to
the classes to whom th; appeal is made.
He then proceeded to arguethat it was im
possible for the United Mates to maintain
a standard of vSme iti sc pa -at ion or isola
tion from the rest of th : civilized wund.
Upon this question, he st iteit, lit could Sie
sio escape lrom the reas uiii of the presi
dent in his message, i.nd for that reas) 1 i e
was in favor of putting .-.n Immediate stop
to the purchase of sdver foi coitm-e.

at the World's fair yesterday was 121.3S4,

grasped his outstretched hand. Tne open
carriage was driven so quickly that hun
dreds had only time to touch the Indian
potentate's hand, but tl at was enough for
them. The women were most conspicuous.
It was a queer and yet amusing sight to
see such homage paid by a Democratic
people to a Hindoo prince.

Fat Teople In Ancient Times.
Fat people have attained to such promi

is so much laughter and so little woe com
paratively, that men have been inspired to
look into the matter of obesity and to find
out how stoutness is regarded in various
countries. It has been discovered through
these investigations that the Greeks and
the Romans held fat people in sovereign
contempt. We also learn that it is a cus
tom among the Geutoos, as the Portuguese
called the Hindoos, to descend into their
dwellings by a hole in the roof, aud anyone
unable owing to his proportions to do like

offender who has not been able to get rid of
