Washington, Dec. 12.? In tho House
to*day, after the transaction of some
minor business, Mr. Dlngloy (Rep.,
Me ) announced that Mr. Grow (Rep.,
Pa.) desired to address the House, and
in order to give him an opportunity to
do so he moved they go into committee
of tho whole on the State of the Union
for consideration of the President's mes?
sage. The motion was agreed to and
Mr. Grow took the floor.
He sent to the clerk's desk and had
read that portion of the message relat?
ing to the now tariff law now on the
Btatute books. Mr. Grow then oalled
attention to tho fact that Mr. Cleveland
said nothing about the efficiency of the
custom law to produce revenue enough
to carry on the government.
Mr. Grow pointed out that he did not
glvo receipts and expenditures for last
year. "Yet it was a fact,"Mr. Grow said,
"that :ho deficiency for 1804 was 809,000,
000, and for the first ?ve months of the
present fiscal year It was 818.000,000.
Tho total deficiency since June 30, 1804,
was 8131,000,000. The bonded debt
under the present administration had
increased 8102,000,000. That has beou
the result of the new custom system
which the President extolled.
"What of the customs law which pre?
ceded it, and which Mr Cleveland said
in his messago wae 'insufficient for the
purposes of revenue,' and which he said
*impedod our entrance Into the markets
of the world.' As to the charge that
the McKinley law had not produced
sufficient revenue, Mr. Grow Bald that
it, as well &b every protection measure
passed since 1600, had produced more
than enough revenuo to meet the normal
expenses of tho Government.
"From 1863,when the Merrill bill was
panned, to 1880, tho protection cuBtoms
system had produced sufficient revenue
to meet the regular expends of thegov
ornmont during tho war. From 1880 to
1803 the revenues exceeded expendi?
tures by 81,310.000. The last adminis?
tration has borrowed money to pay the
ourrent expenses. Except during the
period of tho war no bonds had been
sold for that purpose until tho present
administration assumed tho reins of
"The present administration," said
Mr. (.row, "soeme to have begun where
liuohanan's administrate n left off "
(Applause and laughter on the Repub?
As the President has charged that the
McKinley custom law impeded our en?
trance to the markets of the world, Mr.
Grow deolared amid Ropublioan ap?
plause that no market was better than
the American market. "It consists,"
Baid he, "of 70,000,000 people, who oon
sume more than any people the sun
shines on." Mr. Grow said that for no
similar period had the balance of trade
been in our favor as during the throe
years the McKinley law was In opera?
He then drifted to a discussion of Mr.
Cleveland's currency reform, ills em
phatio statement that greenbacks would
not not be retired was received with a
demonstration of applause by the Re?
publicans. He dwelt on the President's
InBlBtanoe this year in regarding an ex?
tension of the National banking system
and utterly ignoring the rejuvenation
on the Sta.e banks, which last year he
had been so anxious about.
Continuing Mr. Grow said: "The
complaint that greenbacks furnished
An ei dleas chain, by whiah tbe
gold reserve was depleted, was not
frank. The greenbacks would endan?
ger the reserve as long as the revenues
were not equal to the expenses and no
longer. Having the current debts of
the Government to pay off, the reserve
was the road te national bankruptcy."
Mr. Urow referred to the elections last
fall as a condemnation of the new
tariff law and tho policy of the ad?
At the oonolusion of Mr. Grow's
speech the committee rose, and the
House at 1:35 adjourned until Monday.

the BAYABD RESOLUTIONS.
Republicans Admit That the Propoal
tlons to Fro peach is Not .Intended.
Washington, Deo. 13.?According to
theoDlnions ot two or three members of
the House committee on foreign affairs,.
there is a strong possibility that when
tho reading of Mr. Bayard's opoochos
are heard and considered that Mr. Bar?
ret's resolutions will be changed.
It ia nowoonoeded by the Republicans
that the proposition to impeaoh was not
Intended seriously, but was merely a
parliamentary move toseoure debate on
the ambassador's conduct. Mr. MoOall
says that it would be unfair for the
House to assume that President Cleve?
land has not suggested to the ambassa?
dor that his speech was improper, and
that it is un'air to Bayard to censure
him if the President has already done so.
This view is taken by the committee
men. In oase tho President has not
communicated with the ambassador the
House should censure him, and it is
suggested this might be done either by
a separate resolution or in tbo bill be?
fore the Houbi. A move to incorporate
a clauBO in tho apportionment bill will
be made when that bill comes before
the Houeo. It is said to bo In order to
censure such an official or ask the

THE NOBLE OLD ROMAN GONE
Senator Thurman, of Ohio,
Ha Was Born at Lynohtmrg, V?., Ffom
Which He Went With His Father to
Chlllicothe, Ohio?There Ho Studied
I?avr?His Services od tho Bench and
In Both Houses of Congress.
I Columbus, o., Deo. 18.?The long and
I useful career of Judge Allen G. Th?r?
man oame to a close this afternoon at 1
o'olook at his residence. The end was
peaceful in the extreme and the soul of
I the great man left this earthly hablta
I tlon without a sign of physioial dis?
tress. At the instant of dissolution,and
for some hours before, Judge Thurman
had been lying in an unconscious con?
dition. He passed merely from sleep
temporal to sleep eternal, and the
change was hardly noticeable even to
the loved ones who surrounded his bed
In the midst of the volumes of knowl?
edge he prized so dearly, and amid the
scenes where he had spent so many
pleasant hours of bis happy old age, the
vital spark took wings from the image
of olay. Judge Thurman died in his
I belovod library, which looks toward
the setting sun. Shortly after his fall
several weeks ago Judge Thurman'a bed
was moved from tbe adjoining bedroom
to his library and ho remained there, j
Judge Thurman has lived with his
son, Allen W. Thurman, since the death
of his wife Boveral years ago, and being
unable to leave the house he occupied
appartmenta in the third story, where
he spent the last days of his life in a
remarkably pleasant and agreeable
The beginning of Judge Thurman'a
fatal illness dates from November 7
last, when he fell heavily while walk?
ing aoross the library floor. A few days
after the fall Judge Thurman'a life was
despaired of, hut he rallied from the
shook, and at times apparently seemed
to have regained his old-time vigor. ,
November 13 Judge Thurman was 82
years old and on that date several of
his old friends called on him and had a
ploaBant chat. On that occasion he
smoked a olgar with bis friends and
seemed unusually ohoerful and bright.
Since the accident he has had his
good days and his bad ones. He had
been oonflned to his bed nearly all tho
time and his physician, Dr. W. H.
Whltaker, called on blm dally. That
he wa? Bteadily growing weaker was
apparent to all and It has been known
tor ttoneo time that he could not hold
out muoh longer.
Laot Thursday when Dr. Whltaker
called he found his patient sitting up
In a obalr, smoking a cigar and appar?
ently enjoying it He shook bands with
the doctor and said: "My dear doctor,
sit down and talk to me." He seemed
very cheerful and cracked jokes, as was
his habit, and talked to tho doctor in
French, whloh he delighted In.
He didn't continue his Fronoh conversa?
tion as long as usual, tho dcctor noticed,
and went back to bed, his pulse being
rather feeble at this time.
On Wednesday at 4 p. m., he seemed
listless and heavy about his eyes, and
his mental faculties appoared duller.
The ohange for tbe worse became quite
marked shortly after midnight this
morning, and tbo family became
alarmed and sent for Dr. Whltaker. At
that time tbe doctor found him almost
unconscious and bis breathing was
laborouB. Dr. Whltaker aroused him suffi?
ciently to ask him if he was thirsty, and
the judge nodded bis head in assent.
Dr. Whltaker gave him a little water
and whiskey, which he swallowed with
difficulty. He seemed however to be
partially conscious of what he was
doing. He then sank Into a heavy
stupor from which he was never aroused.
It was known thon that tbe beginning
of the end had set In and tbe family was
At 10 a. m. on Saturday the funeral
will take place at the residence whloh
will be as private as possible. All who
desire will be given the privilege of
viewing the remains at the residence.
It was his request thatif Bov. Mr Grover
was living and in good health the
latter should preaoh at his fnneral.
Mr. Grover la at present oity Ubarlan,
a position he has held for twenty-two
years and is still a very active man.
Judge Thurman, for years one of
the most popular leaders of the Demo?
cratic party, was born at Lynchburg,
Va., November, 1813. Hla parenta re?
moved to Ohllllcothe, Ohio, and he
made that plaoe his home until he set?
tled in Columbus In 1853, where he has
since resided. His education was re
ceived at the Chilllcothe Academy and
from his mother. He waB private sec?
retary of Governor Lucas, studied law
with bis unole, Governor William Allen,
was admitted to the bar in 1835, and in
the course of a few years he had a large
He was eleoted to Congress by the
Democrats in 1844, but deolined a re
nomination and continued in the
praotice of his profession. In 1851 be
was eleeted to the bench of the supreme
court of the State, serving as oblef
justice, and on the expiration of his
term he refused a renominatlon. In
1868 he was the ohoioe of his party for
Mr. Thurman was elected to the
United States Senate to succeed Mr.
Wade and took bis seat In 1869. From
the first he was reoognir.ed as the leader
of the Democratlo minority. He was a
member of the judiciary committee,
and when his party oame into power in
! the Forty-sixth Congress he was chosen
j chairman and was also made president
; pro tern, of tho Senate. He was re
elected for a second term In 1874, clos ?
ing his Senatorial career of twelve
years in 1881
In the Democratlo national conven?
tion of 1876 Mr. Thurman was named
for President. In 1880 the first ballot
gave him the entire vote of the Ohio
delegation and the support from other
j States In 1884 he was a delegate at
large to the national Demooratlo con
Tension, which again pnt him in nom
inatlon for the Presidency, and he stood I
next to Cleveland and Bayard on the
first ballot. In the Demooratio conven?
tion of 1888 he was nominated for tbe
Vice-Presidency by acclamation. He
was the author of tbe Paoiflo railroad
Be Was a Great Man.
Washington, Deo. 18.?Many ot the
old Senators remembered Judge Th?r
man very well, as he served with them,
but be belonged more particularly to
the era of Con kiln, Edmunds, Logan
and others who beoame famous at a
period when many of the now old mem?
bers of the Senate were just entering
upon their careers. Thoie who served
with Mr. Thurman expressed the high?
est regard for him and deolared that
he was one of the great men ot the
country. He was regarded as one of
the best lawyers that ever served in
the Senate, and several Senators said
of him that be more truly represented
their ideas of sterling Democracy than
any of the men of his time.
Secretary Carlisle said: "My personal
"acquaintance with Judge Thurman ex?
tended through many yours and as long
as be continued to take part in public
affairs our relations were olose and in?
timate. Ho was a great lawyer, just
judge and one ot the most able and
patrlotio legislators I have ever known
in Congress. He was a party man and
his fame already constitutes a part of
the traditions of the party to which he
belonged, but he alwayB enjoyed the
respect and confidence of all classes of
our people and his death will be
lamented by all."
Ex-Attorney Uarland, of Arkansas,
who was In Cleveland's former Cabinet,
was a warm friend of Judge Thurman.
He said to-day he regarded Thurman
almost as r near kinsman, and paid high
tribute to his personal character and
ability. He added: "Judge Thurman's
invariable courtesy to opponents won
him almost as many frlendB and ad?
mirers on the Republican side of tho
Senate as on the Democratic side.
Probably his greatest Bervice rendered
this oountry was his work of staying
attempted onslaughts on the rights of
the Southern poople, and his able de?
fense of the Pacific road's sinking fund
late in the '70'a.
Attorney Qeneral Harmon said:
"Allen G. Thurman was one of the
purest and ablest men that Ohio has
over produced. He clearly distin?
guished himself as one of the first
judges of her supreme court until the
new constitution. He came within a
few votes of becoming governor over
Hayes in 1878. No man in the State
has ever more fully hold the respoot
and oocfidenoe of the people, and as a
true Demooratio statesman he held the
confidence and respect of his party
throughout hli long public lite."
Governor MoKInley's Tribut?.
CoLUMnus, Ohio, Deo. 18.? Governor
McKinley to-night issued the following:
'Ohio has lostonoof its noblest citizens.
Allen G. Thurman died at 1 o'clock to?
day in this oity at his home at the age
of 89. He was a statesman whose sturdy
Integrity and exalted abilities were
recognized not only In bis own State,
but in ovory part of the United,States.
As a judge ot the supreme court bo was
learned ,and incorruptible, as United
States Senator he served faithfully and
"He retired to private life universally
respected and esteemed by the citizens
of his country. His Illustrious caroor
Is a consplououB examplo of tho pos
slbllltles of American cltlzonshlp and
worthy the study of the youth of our
States. The people of Ohio, regardless
of party, will be mourners at bis bier.
Out of respect to his memory it is
ordered that flags be displayed at half
mast over the State capltol.
Senator KdmnndV Morrow.
Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 12?Ex
Senator Edmunds, one of the earliest
present associates of Allen G. Thur?
man, expressed a most heartfelt sorrow
at the death of bis old friend. "I had
hoped," Bald he, "that he would have
recovered from his illness. We were
Intimate friends for many years, and
I always entertained a most tender re?
gard for him. He was a pure and up?
right man and left a good Impression
everywhere. , As to his ability he was
confessedly the superior of any one on
the Demooratio aide of the Senate."
