"Dad Dollar" Bate's Tiewa,
Washington, Sept. 3ft. Stewart's speech
arousing the president of talking and
writing slightingly of congress and Cam
eron's in favor of free silver were the feat
urt s of the oratory at the beginning of the
senate week. Stewart began with a cita
tion from President's Cleveland's sp-eh
on the 1 ecu-ion of commemorating the
k unci .-! :li mn.iver-jiry of the laying of the
coruer-btone of the Cn;.i:ol. Ti.is speet b
had Wen min!e by a presi.Ieut having
:nore than '.' M federal ofiices to dis
pone of and v ith a veto power which had
been diiici el only for extraordinary occa
sions Imrked by concentrated capital and
encouraged and fl vtered by a venal press.
He decriled Cleveland on tliat occasion
as turning bis face towarl the senate wing
of the Capitol and in angry nd menacing
tones tiniiig the following language:
"Tlnut;litle Multitude and Venal I'r-"
If the representatives who here assem
ble to make laws for their fe'.iow country
men forget the duty of broad and disinter
ested patriotism, and legislate in prejudice
and passion, or in U-haL' of sectional or j
selllsn mterrsrs. me I'tne i:cu me coruci
:one of the Capitol was laid and the cir
cumstances htirr mndiug it will not lie
worthy of eornriiemoratioii." This declara
tion, Senator Stewart said, had been
cheered and encouraged by a thoughtless
multitude and construed by a venal press
as a rebuke to the senate. The struggle
for constitutional liberty of the Anglo
Saxon race, which had been long, arduous,
and attended with marry sacrifices, had
lasted now for nearly U) years. He
quoted at great length from Macauley's
History of England as to the parliamentary j
trngg.e with tne Stuart kings.
1 liargr Against tlie I'resolent.
He then charged the presideut with dis
regard of the legislative branch of the gov
ernment in not citusing the sliver purchase
law and the Chinese exclusion law to be
faithfully executed, the reference to the
ailver purchase law leiug that the full
purchase of suver per month had not been
purchased. Stewart undertook to say that
at no tune since the execution of Charles I.
had any king or president, either iu Eng- j
laud or the I nited states, deliai.tly dis
ulieyeil a statute which he hi:iself had de
clared mandato y, or had allowed his
subordinates to disobej it. The president's
oath of office tommaiided him to see that
the laws were faithfully executed; but
here was a pla n mandatory law that had
been disregarded. Was it not time to
sound the alarm?
Seller fixes the I'rire.
One reason given in the treasury depart
ment for not buying the full amount of
silver is that t lie price at which it was
oflernd was atove the marked price, and
Stewart denounced the treasury for acting
upon stteh a reason, which led Mcl'lierxon
to psk whether Stewart aheld that a price
demanded by a seller fixed tue market
price. Senator Stewart replied in the
"That is a very strange idea," said Mc
I'herson. "I alwtys suppled that the
tnnrket value of an article was the price
fvbii-h it would sell for in the market and
"Vh'at in order to quote a price there must
be a purchaser as well as a seller."
An Indignity ll-youd Kiiflurance.
Hut worse even tunutiie lion-execution
o'thee laws appeared '. lie, in Stewart's
opinion, the contemptuous allusions to
congress which lie found in some of Cieve
lanu's letters anil alleged interviews. He
was particularly embittered at the presi
dent's allusion in one of his letters to
"having congress on his hands." This
was an indignity beyond endurance. And
then in retaliation the Nevada senator
scoffed at the president for his want of a
collegiate or any other liberal education
that would fit him for his nigh office, and
read the president's brief biography in
the congressional directory, laying much
at res on the points of.Cleveland'.s career as
assistant teacher to the blind, clerk, sher
iff, mayor, and practicing lawyer.
( leveland' Trip to the "West."
The speaker made much fun of the biog
raphy where it. speaks of Cleveland going
west" in r"5 to Buffalo. "He went
west," said Stewart, iu tones of great con
tempt; "west, to Huffalo." Ijiughter.
The Nevada senator spoke two hours and
a hulf, md then yielded to Cameron, and
after that gentlemen was through Hate
made 11 speech, and then Stewart took up
his remarks and continued until Voorhees
suggested an executive session, when he
CAMERON FOR FREE SILVER.
Ua Alu lropiea the Iue of Jlond for
m Guld Keaerve.
There was much interest in what Cam
eron would bay and many senators from
both sidi-s of the chamber moved close to
him to dear him, as he npoke in a low tone,
lie biiu by calling attention to Glad
atone's speech in which he fiaid that Eng
land being a creditor's natiou with some
thing like 1,UOO,UOO,0JO invested in other
countries could not favor free silver coin
age, ami the inference that Cameron drew
from (iladstone'a remarks was that for her
own benefit England would uphold the
mono metallic standard regardless of the
suffering it would cause at home and
England's financial policy was always
sordid, grasping, and aggressive, and
Gladstone's speech was reason enough why
he (Cameron) should vote against the re
peal bill. America on the contrary was
always fair, lilxral, and generous; that
was her policy. She had always, on every
occasion, asserted the most emphatic nega
tive to the policy and methods of the mon
eyed power f England. Some of those
negative policies were: "We have fostered
ami protected the small land owners; we
have protected manufactures; we have
protected shipping; we have protected our
citizens and seamen; we have, so far as we
could, under any and all party changes,
even when we changed our methods, still
preserved the : .dical policy, which.whether
under f ederalist or Republican, Whig or
Democrat, has always been to maintain a
negative on what we thought, and still
think, the mistakes of.;,' power
of England.'' r'J, "gi:S.

said if the bill we -e calculated to em bar

lating for the ptirjiose of embarrassing a
foreign government is neither dignified
nor safe. fi d . not care to embarrass Eng
land or any other government. Such a
motive is not fit o le acted npou. still
less to be avowed. All h. story proves that
the money interest of Kuyland never re
coils before such difficulties as are ue
gected by this line of argument. If India
suffers, India will have to submit. If the
people are ruined, they will have to die.

He favored the Sherman act. It in
creased the circulation about 36,00o,000 a
year, barely enough to meet the needs of
trade. Stopping of silver coinage would
increase our difficulties. If silver were
sacrificed at the demand of the manufact
urers the silver states would revenge
themselves by votirig for tariff reduction.

BATE GiVS HIS VIEWS.
The Number of drains in a Silver Iol!ar
Bate followed Cameron and said that
the sovereign power to coin gold and silver
into money rested in the independent
rtates and w is I y them transferred by
specific grant to their agent, the congress,
and that power v.as not to coin money
from gold or silver, but from gold and
silver. The silver lollar and not the gold
coin was the unit of value. The silver
dollar was the doll ir of account which the
gold and silver coins were to represent.
It was thus inte I'led that the dollar
should be always grains of pure sil
ver, just as the jards'.ick was to lie '"
This measure of value remained whether
the coin that -epresent"d it wmso silveror
pold, greenback, national bank note or in
dividual check. It was lixed, no matter
what the price, with no regard to the ratio,
und remained so until altered by unhal
lowed hands in T4. Bate denied the
claim that the Sh rman law wns respon
sible for the string -ncy and said that the
real cause of the trouble was the Kepub
lican tariff. That was the real issue of the
last national campaign, and the Democrats
had made a mistake iu not pushing tariff

stealing case tnat promises to become verv
sensational is now on trial here. About six
months ago Nelson & Mersman, live stock
commission men at East St. Louis, received
a consignment of three cars of cattle from
the Indian territory shipped by Sylvester
Hayes and one Keyes, who came with the
stock. Before the cons gnees could turn
the cattle into cash Hayes and Keyes were
arrested on a charge of stealing the stock.
Keyes secured hail bt-.t Hayes was re
manded to jail.
At the oiiening of the proceedings the
prosecution presented a confession from
Hayes implicating a large number of
prominent shippers in every large st-vck
center of Oklahoma, Texas, aud the Indian
territory. Thefts of cattle have become
wholesale in these sections, and the losses
have reached hundreds of thousands.
Owners of stock on ranges representing
several millions are here to aid the prose
cution. These men say that w hile Hayes'
confession is startliug it has only hinted at

A Clock That Registers the Tide.
The chamber of commerce of Rouen
has erected a clock tower which gives
the time on three sides and the height of
the tide on the fourth, namely, that front
ing the harbor. The tide iudicator con
sists essentially of a float, which, by
means of a cord and counter weight hung
on a drum, actuates a series of shafts
with bevel wheel gearing and moves a
hand or pointer on a dial like that of a
clock, marked with the necessary figures
to show the level of the tide. The dials
are of opal glass and are illuminated at
night. The clock has an apparatus for
distributing the time to other clocks in
Rouen and also for unifying the time
after the method adopted in Paris.
