Washington, Sept. 27. There was an
interruption to Senator Stewart's flow of
eloquence when Palmer of Illinois began
to get inquisitive, and the colloquy that
ensued was the only lively incident of the
day in the "upper." house. After a squab
ble as to Stewart's right to yield when
anybody else wanted to speak to "farm
out the floor" Stewart got down to busi
ness and proceeded to read newspaper ex
tracts in which the eminent editors as
sumed and the Washington correspond
ents assumed to speak for the president
tell what he is going to do with this sena
tor, and how he is going to put the screws
to that senator, in order to whip them
into line on the repeal bill. He varied
the reading with a letter dated at New
York, signed "One Who Knows," ad
dressed to himself and telling him to "be
careful" how ha obstructed the work of
Wants Somebody to Contradict.
Then more newspaper articles of the
same character. He wanted to know why
these articles, and the inferences and
statements they contained, were not con
tradicted if they were not true. And this
was the ground upon which he based his
belief that they were true. If senators
had not been dragooned into support of
the repeal bill by the power of patronage
why did they not deny it. .If the presi
dent had not come to the capital and ar-
raignetl the legislative department as cul
prits, as wan usserted by one metropolitan
editor, why was it not contradicted?
Charles I had done just what Cleveland
had donp here up to this time.
l'lraer begins Interrogating.
He charged a cons,.irai y on the part of
the "eoldines" to keen from the neonle
knowledge of what was transpiring in the
capital, and lmd read charpes acaiust the
president made in a San Kraneisco paper.
At this point Palmer of Illinois asked
whether it was consistent with the proper
relations that should exist between the
president and the Renate thus to have
charges against the executive read to the
Stewart replied that it was consistent for
him as a senator to defend to defend the
senate against what the press regarded as
a "rebuke" administered to it by the pres
ident. "Let his friends," he added angrilv.
deny that he has used patronage to con
trol legislation. Let them make it clear
to the cutintryilist patronage lias not been
given to those whosupported his measures.
These charges have become too common;
and if they are not true the should be
Wants Stewart to File Charges.
Palmer Will the senator himself indi
cate a single instance in which the presi
dent has employed his patronage to con
trol a sountor or member of the house?
"Why, my dear sir," Stewart exclaimed.
"these things are charged every day in
the public press, and let you deny them if

"If the senator himself," Palruer per
sisted "will on his own responsibility as
a senator make a charge of that sort I
will confers or deoy it; but the idea that
the friends of the president or the presi
dent himself should formally deny all
the charges against him in the newspapers
is absurd. I am calling attention to the
strange attitude which the senator occu
pies in repeating on this floor charges
against the president for which the sena
tor himself will not be responsible."
WOULD MAKE IT PERSONAL.
And So the Nevada Statesman Declines
Stewart repeated that the charges were
made in the public press by administrat ion
organs: the majority for free coinage bad
melted away. He dealt in grand results,
not in specified particulars. He suggested
a committee of investigation. Hut the
Illinois man was persistent. "Will the
senator." Palmer again asked, "kindly
name a single senator whom he knows or
believes to have been influenced by the
favors of the president."
"The senator Irom Illinois desires to
make a personal matter of it. Oh,p-,hawI'
"If I believed," said Palmer, "what the
seuator asserts I would give the names of
the senators implrcated."
" ill the seuator," rwart asked, "vote
for a resolution giving to a committee the
power to investigate?"
"I will," Palmer replied, "whenever
the senator himself, in his place, makes
a charge against any senator or any mem
ber of the house of representatives. When
ever the senator brings formal charge
against any individual in the senate I will
vote for an investigation."
"Wheuever I make a criminal charge
against a particular Individual," said
Stewart conptuously, "he will allow the
charge to be investigated. But he will
not protect the honor pf his executive in
denying the charge wfflch the newspapers
are making. He wants me to
make a personal charge against senators.
And then be repeated, with all the con
tempt he could impart to the words:
"Oh, pshawl That is clear outside of the
"May I" Palmer again ventured. But
he got no farther.
"I decline to be interrupted," Stewart
broke in, "by such questions. I will not
make personal charges, because the air is
full of them."
"Yes they are very windy..'
"They are so and they blown down upon
a good many senators and members."
Stewart wound up bis speech for the day

reason why interest on the public debt had

that it was according to law. Dubois of

i'wkins spoke for free silver, Stewart gave
another installment of his speech, and
Palmer wanted him to prefer charges
against some senator and have the accusa

Stewart declined. Morgan and Voorhees

newspaper allegations Stewart had quoted.

DEBATE ON ANOTHER REPEAL.
file Honse bets to Discussing the National
Washington, Sept. 27. The debate on
the federal election law repeal bill has
begun, but in spite of the interest taken in
the matter there were not more than seventy-five
representatives present to hear
the opening guns. Tucker began the de
bate. He argued that the statute which
it was proposed to repeal was unconstitu
tional, and that congress had no right to
confer the power that it had unon su
pervisors of elections. The right of suf
frage was a right preserved to the states
and granted specifically in the constitu
tion. The right of suffrage rested in the
states of the Union. He planted himself
on t ne ground that the right of acitizen
to vote wes a right given him not by the
constitution tif the United States, nor by
the federal government, bat by the right
preserved in the state and recognized by
What right, lie queried, was worth hav
ing that was put into the hands of anoth
er ? He held that the elective function
and the determining function must go
hand in hand.
Milliken (Kep.) of Maine asked several
questions on this point and suggested that
the gentleman from Virginia might be
elected from his state as a representative
of bis district, but if his right to his Beat was
challenged the case would be passei upon
by a federal power.
Tucker replied that was provided for in
Tucker continued with bis constitution

that if the original right of suffrage was

visors and deputy marshals supervise an
election under a law which it had not en
acted, or scrutinize the registration .(a
condition of suffrage in many of ''the
states) when the right of suffrage emanat
ed from the state itself and the state
alone could determine it?
In reply to a question by Henderson of
Illinois as to whether there was not a ne
cessity for federal supervision at the polls
Tucker said be was not discussing the
question of necessity; he was discussing
the question of power. Then Tucker
opened on John I. Davenport, declaring
that the atrocities of the Duke of Alva did
not exceed Davenport's atrocities. When
asked how it was that "Sunset" Cox had
reported eulogistic.lly of Davenport to the
house. Tucker said that if Davenport was
an angel of light in 1S77 ho had no such
reputation now, except upon the principle
that the laws be executed were so poor
that they should be repealed. "
They were an evidence of a past era in
our history. We belonged to a generation
that was looking no longer to the past
but to the future. We wanted to strike
from the statute books every trace of re
construction measures. He belonged to a
party that was not a Bectional party. He
belonged to a party that did not believe
in anything sectional. The Republicans
had violated the pledges of the fathers, had
overridden the constitution, had denied
the right of habeas corpus, had shown the
people that they were not worthy of con
fidence and the people had elected a Dem
ocratic president and a Democratic con
Brosius of Pennsylvania held that the
constitution of the United States had been
created by the people, not the states. Be
ing asked why the fathers had never used
the power conferred by the con
stitution to supervise elections he
said because villainy was progressive
and the fat hers had never had such vil
lainy to deal with as had obtained since
the war in depriving citizens of their right
at the ballot-box. Compton replied by say
ing that no party except the Republican
had ever acted the part of the tyrant over
American citizens, to which Brosius re
plied that Compton's arrows were "not
feathered with the wings of knowledge."
Would Tax Bank Deposits.
Washington, Sept. 27. Representative
Bryan, of Nebraska, in explanation of his
bill to tax bank deposits at the rate of
per cent, for the creation of a fund to pay
depositors in failed national banks, says:
"It benefits the community, because when
depositors are secure money will not be
hoarded. Thus banks will not be crippled,
and the worst features of panics will be
avoided. It will compel states to protect
depositors in state banks in the same way,
or state banks will get no deposits."
No More Public Receptions.
Washington, Sept. 27. The president
has determined to discontinue bis public
receptions, substituting special receptions
to visiting bodies whenever the occasion
