And Eiprniea a Luck of Reverence fot
Supreme Court Opinion He Altto Hut
Shy at John Sherman Mill Prepared
to Stand by the President and Follow
Sherman Rather Than Peffer A Hot
for a Conference.
Washington, Oct. 19. The senate bat)
i mt her of its "recess" sessions and again
took recess instead of adjourning. The
object of this is to save the time in the
m ming' in which general business may
b : brought up, so that the whole time ol
the senate may be given to the repeal bill,
thus adding at least two more hours to
the time for debate. Morgan was ou his
feet as soon as the senate was ready foi
business and resumed the discussion ot
question of senatorial silence during roll
call. He imagined a case in which two
senators voted aye upon a bill and one sen
ator voted no, while the rest of the sena
tors remained in their seats silent, and he
asked whether that bill could be said to
have passed the senate. Those who had
sat by and had not voted might have
meant to Fay by then- silent negative votes
that they were unwilling to do business
of that sort. Tbey micht have said: "It
is true that we are here; it is true that we
do not answer to our names. Hut our
presence and silence indicate thHt we are
not here for the purpose of doing business
that you want to do. We have a right to
be here to see what kind of a record you
are going to make."
That Suprt-nir Court Decision.
Morgan then took r.; the decision of the
supreme court which was referred to a-i
being in favor of the right of a presiding
officer to count a quorum. He said that
derision roiiM not he lwiste.1 into a sup
port if that doctrine, except by the artful
tiess of au astute j oiit ician. A fair minded
lawyer could not do it. 1 lie supreme
court, Mfirgi'U said, had never claimed the
power to decide ns to the constitutionality
or unconstitutionality of the rules of either
house. It could not do it. That was a
political question in which the supreme
couit never cot ceinel ltse.:.
t.et to I lie I'oilit He Stnrtel For.
Then he applied his argument to Hill
and said: "It is only those men who have
easy consciences who follow the supreme
court. There are men in the world whose
consciences are so very easy that thev can
bend them to any purpose which their po
litical necessities may require at any time.
But such men have no just conception of
the rights and duties of the representatives
of the people and the states. Men of that
class may follow the supreme court around
and be willing to take au oath of allegiance
to its opinions oneway today and to its
opinions another way to-morrow."
. Tangled 1 nie in Hi Tart.
In this conned ion Morgan referred to
the fact that after the decision of the su
preme court jiganist legal tender govern
ment notes the court had been increased
from seven to nine, tlie ease had been
argued again and the first decision ie
versed, and implied that because of the
lirst decision tue court had lu en "ncrea
sons to obtain the secord. lie was cor
reeled on that point by i lour, who gave
the facts in the case an 1 assert ed th:U the
increase of the court had been provid
for by congress, and to judges (iJradicy
and Strong) nominated, before th" fir
legal tender decision had been made.
Ketnrnx to senator Hill.
Having come to grief by this diversion
Morgan returned to t he New York senator,
who he said. had referred to his
(Morgan's) devotion to another constitu
tion than that of the United states. He
did not, he said, have much respect for
men who were constantly referring to the
war period of IM'.l, and who had not had
the pluck tosuouluer a gun ana go out
to fight. His respect did not extend to
that class, as it did to men like I'almer,
Morrison, Sickles, Kandall, who had taken
muskets in their lmnds nud said "we will
try this question with you, ou issue of
Not Athamcil of His War Rernrd.
It was only those who hired substitutes
nud stayed at home nud pleaded the baby
net, or something of that kind, who were
in the habit of getting up tu the senate
and elsewhere and quoting the fact that he
(Morgan) had belonged to the secession
government of the south. lie had be
longed to it, and was not ashamed of the
fact. Old John Knox, old John Wesley
aud Martin Luther men wlu had fought
for freedom of conscience were the men
whom he revered in history not those
petty politicians who figured and rose to
the surface like bubbles upon a stagnant
pond and exploded and left nothing be
hind them but mephitic odors. Laughter
WANTS IT TAKEN METAPHORICALLY
And Give the Democrat a Warning Hased
on a Classic Legend.
Proceeding Morgan spoke of the severe
treatment of Senator George some weeks
ago when he was forced to go on with his
speech, although in ill bealtb at the time:
and recalled the classical legend of Actteon
and his dogs; bow after the dogs bad
caught and devoured the game they had
turned upon their master and consumed
him. He warned his Democratic col
leagues that that would be their fate in
the coalition which tbey had entered into
to pass the bill. lou are," said he, ad
dressing himself to those Democrats,
"turning your dogs loose here I do not
mean literally, but metaphorically'
laughter upon men who are represen
tative men in the highest sense of the
word and who want to do their duty to
their constituents and to the country.
"And after awhile, when your hounds
have destroyed us they will turn upon
you and rend you to pieces. They will
have no more use for you than a boy haa
for a last year's bird's nest after they have
done manipulating you and carrying you
along in their little political machine."
Further on le spoke figuratively of
Butler and himself as having nothing to
do but to cross their hands aud be hand
cuffed and blindfolded and turned over to
the tender mercies of the senator rom
Ohio, who would pack them a-.vay In his
"cold storage" and keep them there until
they changed their opinions or became
Teller then said he would not submit to
be lectured by Hill and Gray, and though
he might submit with a belter grace to a
lecture from Sherman, all such lectures
were violative of the canons of good or
der and decency, from widen preliminary
he proceeded to "baste" the president for
what he alleged was interferon with the
legislative oranch of the government. He
read numerous interviews in the papers to
support his argument and represented
Cleveland as saying: "This compromise
is not satisfactory to me." In reply to a
question by McPherson whether he knew
of any int rference by the president Tel
ler replied, "I do," and quoted theXortben
letter, which he said McPherson would
not deny did interfere. McPherson said
he did deny it, and Teller replied that Mc
Pherson was a brave man.
Daniel referred to Sherman's remark
that the Democrats would vote against the
ten commandments or the Lord's prayer if
proposed by Republicans. Daniel said
that Sherman was quite right in saying so.
If those ancient and venerable documents
were proposed by the senator from Ohio
the Democrats would instantly imagine
that there was just such a trick about it
as there had been about the Sherman act.
Then he took back the word "trick" and
substituted the word "scheme" for it.
And cow, he added, the senator from Ohio
was not only the leader of the Democratic
party but also its lecturer. Laughter.
Hill remarked that if the presiding offi
cer of the body agreed with him the bill
would pass, in spite of all the objections
of the minority. Loud applause, which
required the interposition of the vice
president Frye quoted a ruling of
Speaker James G. Blaine that the right to
change its rules was inherent in the house
and that it could not deprive itself of that
right, and Frye added that in case the
senate attempted to change its rules the
duty of the presiding officer would be to
refuse te recognize obstruction.
Mills said that he had been in favor of
compromise at one time, but now, when
an anti-administration party had been
started, he had burned his boats and would
stand l.y the president. He had been
taunted with being in company with the
senator f. oiii Uinu (Sherman), but whom,
he asked, did the opponents of the bill follow!-

MOVE FOR A CONFERENCE.
The Majority Trying to Arrange a Talk
Washington, Oct. 19. Vest is circulat
ing a call among the Democratic senators
asking Gorman to call a caucus and pledg
ing the signers to abide by its decision. At
noon yesterday he had received sixteen
signatures, all silver repeal men. The sil
ver men sij n the call without hesitation.
The repeal men appear to be holding off,
aud it would at this time seem to be
doubtful whether they will agree to the
caucus. If they or a majority of them do
not agree to it, it is doubtful whether the
call will be issued. The trouble is that
there is little doubt that the silver men
would control a caucus.
For this reason the iflort is now being
made to have the proposed caucus turned
into a conference, aud to accomplish this
it is uot imprubaMe that one or two of
those who s gned the request that Vest
circulated will have their naraes stricken
lrom that paper. This would leave it
without a majority and relieve the chair
man of the caucus from the necessity of
acting. During the course of debate yes
terday a number of Democrats declared
their intention of not going into auy bind
ing caucus, but indicated a willingness to
come together for the purpose of discussion
the question as Democrats merely. For
this reason the caucus may be transformed
into a conference although that has not

Troreeding in Congress.
Washington. Oct. 19. The senate finally
closed the talk on the question raued by
Dolph and laid his motion on the table,
thereby practically declaring that under
the senate rules a man niaj be sitting
right before the presiding officer and yet
be recorded as absent on roll call, because
he refuses to auswer to his name. Then
Teller made a like motion, because his
name was not on the lecord, although he
was present but refusing to answer. He
criticized the president for, as alleged, in
terfering iu congressional matters. Mor
gan, Dauiel aud Mills spoke on various
phases of the question that is now before
the senate, but no progress was made.
The only incident of note in the house
was a personal controversy between Geary
and Warner of New York, over the New
York and New Jersey bridge bill. It was
a question of veracity, and both gentlemen
were rather excited, but the speaker was
firm in preserving order and the gentle
men became calmer. Tbo bill wa6 passed.
The remainder ol the day was consumed
in the further discussion and consideration
of the printing bill.
