that was that both euM au J silver khoul J
be continue-! in u-,e a money Mono
metaUsra pure and simr-le had never
pained a foothold in the I'nitei States.
If etj'ttors wanted cheap money and an
advance in price, free coinage of silver
was the way to do it. but they bfcould not
call it bimetallism. He reminded the
senators that when they criticised the law
that was misnamed after hin. they shon'.d
remember that thin law nowon the statute
books was fur better then either the house
bill or that pnsse 1 by the senate.
Chum? of I hp I-rrsmt Trouble.
Referring to the cause of the stringency
Sherman said itwasdne to the fact that we
were ci'.led upon to pay our bebts. debts
payable in gold England was the great
creditor cot; n try, and we should neither
be ashamed of nor bate her; we are her
children ami partake much of the charac
teritics of the parent stock. England'
loss in the Argentine Republic had to be
made cotxi and she returned our securities
and demanded the cold needed to save her
own institutions from coiug down. For
the first time also in a number of years
the balance of trade was against us and
we hail to im.ke the difference food.
Hie Senator Grow Inquisitive.
iie i;n sari me Mierman jaw was not
the cause of all t he trouble. He believed
in -eivir. the devil his due," and was
ready to sraad by the law. not as a meas
ure in which be took any special pride, for
he was compiled to yield in order to pre
vent disastrous legislation He was not a
new convert to the repeal of the law, and
a year at; he had introduced a bill to sus
pend the operations of the law. It was
worded aimot exactly like that of Voar
bees. Why did not the Democratic seu
ars then see the dangers thev cow see,
and come to the help of the Republicans
when they sr uLt to suspend the law. Not
a IemiK-raric vote was had then, and
Democrats must answer why.
IH-miMTRt Now KcKponnilili.
The repeal of that law, however, would
not in any considerable decree relieve the
country from what was the principal fac
tor in the present situation a currency
famine but it mi-ht release the money
market from the fear of free coinage. The
Democrats were now responsible and be
warned them tnat if they attempted to al
ter the exisrincr tariff laws they would
plunge the country into deeper distress
than now exist". We must preserve intact
the parity of all our money. It miuht be
neces-ary to issue our sec urities to secure
(rold to maintain this parity, the only way
by which we can summarily secure gold.
The balance of trade may be against us
again next year, and if such a condition
should arise, the secretary of the treasury
oucht to have the authority to make the
deficit g f) I All parties have heretofore
given the secretaries this authority.

Afte; declaring that the purchase of
silver and making a profit out of its coin
age was either a fraud or intrigue Sher
man be.'an a discusion of the various
coinage laws of the United Suites, with
special reference to the net of lsT3, which
had, be mid, been the subject of so much
misrepresentation and falsehood in this J

Voorhees replied that be never intended
to refer to the gentleman from Ohio, for
four years ago he bad effectually cleared
himself from any participation in
that. rvf'-r. Nothing could be farther
from L.-. purpose and intention than to
say an unkind or disrespectful word abont
the senator from Ohio. That senator was
not in his mind at all when he uttered
SOME UNMITIGATED ENGLISH.
Tbe Senator Irnunc-s a Statement as a
"1'lain Lie" Without Frill.
Sherman said that certainly he did not
desire to say anything more on the matter,
being entirely satisfied that what the
senator from Indiana had said was due to
his exuberant eloquence. Laughter. lie

and make the matter and make the act of
1873 plain and clear and to show that the

and wag houorable to congress. "And

tones, "wheu any man makes that imputa

There hm never been any bill free from
any immoral or wrong influence than the

He then taunted Stewart on his position
of "pleading the baby act." The senator
from Nevada, representing a state whose
only industry was the mining of silver and
gold, ought to have known at that time
whether the dear "dollar of the daddy"
was dead and gone or not. , He quoted
from a speech made by Stewart in the sen
ate in 1873-74, these words: "I want tbe
'standard gold, and no paper money that is

Howe, of the Aztec, telegraphed the Ma
rine Transit company at Marine City,
Mich., owner of thetwo boits, that he had
lost the Zopetoc off Lon Point, .Lake
Ontario, at the height of the storm. He
had searched everywhere fir the missing
boat, but afttr running over all that part
