NATIONAL CAPITAL NOTES
Important Proceedings in the
United States Senate.
Mr. Chandler's Bill For the Free Coinage
of Silver When England, Germany and
Franco Are Beady to Do the Same.
Mr. Call's Beaolatlon Recognizing the
Belligerency of Cuba?Other Matters.
Washington, Deo. 5.?Tbero was a
a very Rood attendance, whOD the Sena to
mot at noon to day. The first bill in?
troduced was one by Mr. Mills for tho
coinage of the silver In the treasury. A
b'll introduced by Mr. Chandler for the
free coinage of silver at the ratio of 15%
to 1, the bill to become operative when
England, Germany and France paes
similar laws, was listened to with great
attention by the members of tho Senate.
After providing for coining the bullion
and tho Issuing of sllvor and gold cer?
tificates the third section of the bill
provides that tho law shall tako effect
and become operative when similar laws
shall have baen adopted by che govern
montB of England, France and Ger?
many, which laws shall in substance
provide for tho purchase of gold and sil?
ver bullion without limit and shall
makes legal tender of the gold and the
principal Bllvcr colnB and any certifi?
cate representing them, the ratio be?
tween tho gold and silver to be the same
provided for in that act, and when
such laws have been passed by tho gov?
ernments tho President shall make
Petitions from Florida for the recog?
nition of Cuba and from the legislature
of Montana against further issuance of
bonds were presented.
A resolution offored by Mr. Call, was
adoptod, calling upon the Secretary of
?State to Bend the correspondence relat?
ing to the oaso of Qen. Sanguilly, an
American citizen, sontenced to lite Im?
prisonment, for alleged complicity in
tho Cuban revolution, and directing him
to procure a copy of the record In the
case if it is not on file at the depart?
Mr. Gallinger introduced a resolution
declaring It to bo the sense of tho
Senate tnat it was unwise and inexpedi?
ent to retire tho greenbacks.
At the conclusion of the preliminary
routine business, Mr. Call (Dem., Fla )
called np bis resolution of Tuetday, and
addressed tho Senate. The resolution
provides for tho recognition by the
United States of a state of public war
between Spain and the government pro
claimed, and for some time maintained
by foroeof arms by ?be people of Cnba;
declaring that the United States would
mainatln a condition of Btrict neutrality
between the contending powers, and
accord to nach tho rights of belligerents
in the ports of the United States. The
resolution also declares that tho United
States protests and remonstrates avtalnst
the barbarous manner in which tho war
in Cuba usb been conducted, and author?
izes the President to take Buch steps as
may bo necessary to tecuro an observ?
ance of the laws of war, as practiced by
all civilized nations
Mr. Call doscribed the former rovolu
tions and declared that the progress
against tyrrany made by the native
Cubans,who maintained, r.s we had main
tained in 1770, that juat government
must derive its authority from the con?
sent of the governed, entitled them to
recognition as boli'gerontH and the neu?
trality of other nations. lie considered
it an outrage that the United States
should not hold out an encouraging
hand to those who were struggling for
Independence; but instead of speeding
the Cubans on their course he insisted
I that this Government was actually re?
tarding the revolution; was, in fact, fur?
nishing aid to the Spanish tyrants
"This Government," said be, em?
phatically, "is responsible for many of
the outrages that have been committed.
I I do not mean to say that the President
and his cabinet are responsible, but the
attitude of this Goverment by not
recognizing the revolutionists as bei
lirgerents is maintaining to day the
power of Spain on the island of Cuba."
In conclusion he described Cuba as the
Queen ot Antilles, the future center of
a confederated republic that would in?
clude all the West Indies and called
upon the committee on foreign affairs
to consider his resolution and report
favorably at an early day.
Then, at 12:20, the Senatn went into
exeontlve session and at 1:30 p. m. ad?
journed until Monday.
