"Washington, Oct. C. There were Imt
si-vun scnntors present in t lie chamber
when prayer was s.-iiii. Stewurt thought
that the rvmlini; of the journal should
have ,i larger iiiulieiice. He made the
point of "110 quorum." The roll was called
uiJ forty-three senators just a quorum
respomlei!. The j.mrnnl was then read.
The bill making appropriations to enforce
the Chinese exclusion net was reported to
the seimte from the committee on foreign
relations and referred to the committee on
appropriations. I'efTer offered resolu
tion for the appointment of a select com
mittee of three senators to consider and re
port ''Whether any and what legislation
is necessary to improve the banking sys
tem of the country" It went over. The
silver purchase repeal bill was then taken
up, and liutler addressed the senate in op
position. I for Compromise.
He bewail by criticising some of Mr.
Palmer's statements, particularly the one
insiting tiiat the seoa'-e should be put in a
position to govern itself. He would say to
that senator that the minority was not at
tempting to coerce anybody, but he
thought lie might safely say that the
minority did not intend to be coerced by
anybody. The minoriry in the senate on
the repeal bill represented millions of
American citi.ens and billions of Ameri
can property and were they to I e told tiiat
the minority must yield to the demand of
the majority. He heard it often asked:
"What is to bir dune?" "I reply. Mr.
Presidenr." lie said, "compromise. Com
promise is the solution of the struggle here
ltrfi-mW the I'resident.
Then he spoke -.f the supposed interfer
ence of the president with legislation and
defended the pies, dent against the charge.
Coming back to the merits of the question,
lie declared that if l.e believed that silver
money was an injury to the country he
would vote for the bill. If he believed
that the purchase of 4.."N-,0M) ounces of
silver per month had brought about the
panic, or l ad jeopardized the credit of the
government, he would vote for the un
conditional repeal of the Shermarf law.

Illatkburu then addressed the senate in
opposition to the repeal bill. He was not,
he said, the friend or npologist of the Sher

Lad opposed its passage, and he had never
seen cause, to change the opinion which ho
then held. Hut, bad us the measure was,
unfair and uncandid as he believed it to be,
he did not believe that it had been the
cause of the tinancial woes which the coun
try BUil'ered, nor did he believe that its re
peal would prove that panacea for all the
linancial ills under which the country was
struggling. The trouble lay further back
than the Sherman law. The tariff system
of the country needed revision, and the
financial system needed overhauling. He
stood here to-day to advocate both those
Wants Gold and Sllyer on Even Terms.
Continuing he said: "You must adopt
the gold ami silver standard on even
terms. And then the paper money (issued
on tiiat bimetallic basis) must lie issued
directly by the government and not fil
tered to the people through the agency of
petty, fostered national banks."
He urged the repeal of the 10 per cent,
tax on state bank issues, and said that
there must be a reduction of government
expenditures and that the pension rolls
must be purged of peculation and fraud.
"When these things are doue," he said,
"(if iu God's providence they 'are ever
done), then financial disasters and panics
will be supplanted by prosperity and pro
gress; strikes will be heard of no more;
tramps will give way to well-paid and
contented labor in every industry; agri
cultural, manufacturing and mining will
gain new life; and then we may hope to
attain the destiny to which we are en
titled tiiat of the foremost, the most
prosperous, the happiest people on earth."

JUSTICE FOR NAVAL OFFICERS.
Outhwaiie Introduces it Hill to Redress
Nome Yrt tigs.
Washington, Oct. 6. For many years
there has been congestion iu naval pro
motions. Our great na al commanders in
the days of the revolution aud in the early
part of the century, th men who com
manded squadrons and Meets, were young
men. Now the averagu of the commo
dores and admirals is close oa to GO
years and there are many gray haired
lieutenants. The cause of this state of af
fairs is to be fouud iu I he admissiou into
the r.aval service in the days of the late
war of many volunteer c Ilicers. When the
navy Hiirunk to its prop irtions nt the time
of the building of the first of our steel
naval vessels, and the old wooden ships
these oflicvrs had commanded or served
upon had been, broken up or gone into
"Rotten row," the men still held their
places on the rolls and lor every vacancy
that occurred at rare intervals in the high
er grades there were mi ny applicants. So
promotion was slow.
In ISSj there was an i ttempi at a par
tial remedy, and tiiat took the shape of
the passage of an act d 'opping from the
service a number of cm lets, and limiting
further admissions so as to relieve the
most heavily burdened rank, that of lieu
tenant, from a part of t iie pressure. The
result was that many f the youngsters,
some of them at sea at the time, found
themselves summarily dismissed from the
navy after having spent th- best days of
their youth iu study to lit themselves for
a naval oflicer.
The evil sought to e remedied was
great, but the course of relief was unjust,
ond that is the reason ft r the introduction
by Outhwaite jf Ohio ot a bill reinstating
these men on the rolls of the navy with
the provision that they shall receive no
pay for the years they hi ve lieen out of the
service, but that in all other respects they
shall bo regarded as ha- ing been coutiuu
ously iu the naval servii e.

His Attempt to Swing the Party
for Free Silver
SAT UPON BY THE CONVENTION.
The Nebraska State Democratic Conven

State Ticket Nominated Ryan Graceful

crats Today Chicago Democrats Nom
inate a Judicial Ticket.
Lincoln, Xeb., Oct.J". The Democratic
state convention to nominate a candidate
for associate justice of the supreme court
and two regents of the state university
was called to order shortly before 3 o'clock
by Euclid Martin, chairman of the state
central committee. It Tras early discovered
that there would be a tight between the
adherents of President Cleveland's finan
cial policy and the free silver faction led
by Congressman Bryan. It came right at
the outset and resulted in a substantial
victory for the administration followers.
Chairman Martin recommended T. J.
Mahouey, of Omaha, for temporary chair
man, ami it was seconded. Congressman
Bryan offered the name of Judge Ong as
He then said the convention might as
well understand things at the start. He
talked iu the interest of fair play, and he
said that he did not doubt Mahoney's fair
ness, but it was not his kind of fairness.
He chin get! that the other side would not
give the silver men any show in the com
mittee and said that Judge Ong would
not consent to any gag law. He did not
want men from other districts coming into
the First d:si: ict to tell them who should
speak for them He was loudly cheered.
The roll call was ordered by counties,
showing a decided preference for Mahouey.
As soon as the rull-cail was completed it was
apparent that Mahouey was elected and
Bryan at once moved his election by ac
clamation. Bryan's motion was put aud
carried, but the demand for theaunouuee
meut of roll call was made. W. II.
Thompson, of Grand Island, urged that in
the interest of harmony the announce
ment be not made, but Chairman Martin
said the convention was entitled to the
information, and it was announced as
follows: Mahouey, 'i'M Ong, lUi. Bryan
aud Ong were named as a committee to
escort Mahouey to the platform. Chair
man Mahoney thanked the convention
briefly and appointed a committee on res
olutions and credentials and an adjourn
ment was taken then for supper.
It was nearly 9 o'clock when the conven
tion reassembled. There was much delay
in the report of the credentials of the com
mittee an account of contesting delega
tions, and the time was occupied in brief
addresses bj' lending party men. Shortly
before 11 o'clock the credentials commit
tee reported seating the anti-Bryan con
testing delegations. A minority report
was presented, but it was voted down. The
tug of war cane with the report of the
committee on resolutions. An amendment
was offered to the report recom
mending the free coinage of til
ver, and Coiigresmau Bryan es
poused it. In an impussioned uddress
delivered with dramatic fervor, he called
upou the members of the party to remain
true to the pledges made 10 the people.
For himself, he declared that if the party
with which he had identified himself
proved false to its trust he would
cut himself loose from that party. Bryan
spoke for nearly an h.mr, but the amend
ment was rejected. Frank J. Irvine, of
Omaha, was nominated for associate just
ice of the supreme court and Milton Dao
little and A. M. Gooding as regents of the
university. The convention adjourned
shortly alter midnight.
