HAPPENINGS AT WASHINGTON
Proceedings of the Senate and
Sliver Moo In the Senate Ost? Notice
That Thero Will Be No Legislation For
Bond Issues or the Retirement of
Greenbacks?Secretary Olney Receive*
a Congratulatory TeleEratn From the
Washington, Deo. 21.?The session
of the Senate to-day was notable in
bringing* out a very pointed statement
from Mr. Dubols (Rep., Idaho) who waa
to voloe the views of the silver ele?
ment that no finance legislation was
possible along the linos advanced by
President Cleveland. It was patent to
every Senator, Mr. Dubols said, and
should be understood that the Presi?
dent's retirements of greenbacks or bond
issues were utterly impossible of ac?
complishment. The only action the
Senate could take if it was given an op?
portunity to voto, would be to adopt
the resolution of Mr. Vest (Dem., Mo )
oQored earlier in the day, direcsing the
coinage of silver bullion in the Treas?
ury and the payment of Government
obligations in silver.
Mr. D?bens' declaration came at the
close of the session, and soon thereafter
thu Senate adjourned until Tuesday be?
fore Christmas, thus acceding in part to
the President's request that holiday re?
cess bo not taken pending the grave
financial Complications. The only im?
mediate response to the President's
message was in the presentation of two
resolutions favorable to silver, that by
Mr. Vest and another by Mr. Butler,tho
Populist member from North Carolina,
preferring gold payments while the
metalB were at a parity and silver pay?
ments when gold went to a premium.
Efforts wore made for the immediate
consideration of the measure, but Mr.
Platt'd objection seat them over. A let?
ter from btcrotary Olney gave the con?
gratulatory cablegram from the Brazil?
ian senate, transmitted through Min?
ister Mondofa, of Brazil, on President
Cleveland's recent message.
The resolution is as follows: "The
Federals of the United States, of Brazil,
sends its greeting to the Senate of the
United StateB of America upon the
worthy message of the President, who
so strenuously guards the dignity, the
sovereignty and the freedom of Amexi*
Mr. Vests' resolution was as follows:
"BeBolved, that the Secretary of the
Treasury is hereby directed, in pur?
suance of the existing law, vesting in
him full power to do so, to coin as rap?
idly as possible the silver bullion in the
Treasury purchased under the act of
July 14, 1800, into standard silver dol?
lars tp redeem, cancel and retire the
Treasury notes of the United States of
July 14, 180J, issued in the purchase of
such bullion and also to redeem the
Unltod States notes called greenbacks
into standard silver dollars as well as in
gold, using whichever may bo most
abundant and convenient."
Mr. Vest asked immediate consider?
ation, but Mr. Platt objected, and tho
subject went over.
I am greatly surprised, remarkod Mr.
Cockrell, that such a resolution should
meet with objection. Mr. Butler (P.>p.,
N. C ), soon brought forward tho subject
in another form by asking immediate
consideration of a resolution directing
the Secretary of the Treasury to pay
the government obligations ingold when
the parity of metal stood at 25 8 10
grains of gold for 4grains of silver,
and to pay in silver when this parity
was disturbed by the advance in the
value of gold.
Mr. Piatt again objected. The Sonate
then went to tho calendar and passed
several private pension bills. While
this waB proceeding Mr. Stewart (Pop.
Nov.) rose to inquire, "What has be?
come of the President's message trans?
mitted to this body last evanirg, Is it ? n
the table, are remaks in order?
Mr. Il&wley (Rap. Conn.) quiokly in?
terposed. "We are doing a little good,"
said he. "It Is hoped that the Senate
will allow the consideration of pension
bills to proceed."
Mr. Stewart assented and more pen?
sion bills were passed. One of these,
referred by Mr. Proffer, required the
payment of pension money to wives in
cases where male pensioners desert or
abandon their families or are habitual
drunkards, or for any reaaon fall and
neglect to support their families
Mr. Sherman obj iotod, and the bill
was laid aside.
Mr. Squire (Rep. , Wash.) had the
clerk read an amended bill, appropriat?
ing $87,000,000 for an extensive system
of ooaat defenses, the amount to be
expended in annual instalments.
After a brief executive session the
Senate doors were, at 1:30 p. m , re?
opened, and after the Vice-President
bad announced hla signature to the
Venezuelan bill, Mr. Stewart took the
floor for a' sharp criticism of the Presi?
dent's financial message.
He said: "The President, in uphold?
ing the Monroe doctrine, had placed
himself on a high level, but the mes?
sage of last evening bad suddenly re?
duced blm to a ver>- low level. The
Uni ed States had the resources to croate
money for any emergency. Wars were
not fought on a gold basis. It was the
Inherent strength of a nation that won
victories. England had maintained her
position during tho Napoleonic wars by
placing a fiat on the bills of the bank of
England. Let the President once an?
nounce that the United States' obliga?
tions will be paid in silver and thero
would be no further raids on the Treae

ury. If London wants a financial war, I
let u> meet It."
Mr. Dubols (Rep.) Bald: "I regard
that the President felt called on to
send In such a financial message at this
time. Tho President must know that
he cannot accomplish either a retire?
ment of the greenbacks or the authori?
zation of bonds. The only possible re?
sult would be to preolpltate a tariff
agitation, and, as far as flnanolal legis
llon is concerned, the country should
understand, as every Senator here un?
derstands, that as soon as the Senate
has an opportunity it will adopt the re?
solution offered to-day by Mr. Vest to
coin silver bullion and pay government
obligations in silver.
"Senators know this measure will be
abopted if brought to a vote. The conn*
try should know It. The opposition to
the measure would Beek to obstruct it
and prevent Its passage." Mr. Dubois
referrod to the hopeless situation pre?
sented by tho President's message as
something impossible to remedy, as
every man conversant with the House
affairs was well aware.
On motion of Mr. Faulkner (Dem.,
W. Va.) the Senate adjourned until
There was a feverishly exoitod feel*
ing in the Qouso when the members as?
sembled to-day. Hope of tho holiday
recess had disappeared, and the mem- j
berB were preparing to address them?
selves earnoBtly to tho serious task
The chaplain, In his invocation, Bald:
"Wo find ourselveB as a nation con?
fronted with a gravo and momentous
problem. We Beek Thy counsel, obi
Lord, in this moment, that each heart
and mind may bo prepared courageously
to meet these problems, and so adjust
them that peace and tranqulllty will
Bmile on the land."
? As soon no the journal had been ap?
proved Speaker Roed laid beforo tho
House the President's message and,
notwithstanding tho fact that all the
members had read tho documont In the
newspapers this morning, all listened
wUh attention. There was no demon?
stration of any kind,however. When tho
reading was concluded Speaker Reed
Immediately referred the message to
tho committee on ways and means and
then announced the membership, and
much more interest was manifested on
the floor in the composition of the com?
mittees than In the message as every
member was interested in his assign?

STEPHEN MERRITT, EVANGELIST
On Religious, Political and Fi?
The Change Wrought by the Holy Christ?
In the Individual, In the Church and
Ira the Community, la Wonderful, and
Will Work Wltb Augmented Power
Until the Coming of the Lord.
A change immediate, and to a certain
extent, complete, takes place In every
one that reoeivos the Holy Ghost. Chris*
tians; followers of .Jesus, lovers of the
Lord and of Zton, wo are; but when the
Holy Spirit comes into our hearts, our
very being is changed. We had life;
now, more abundantly. Our lives are
altered. Solf-eoneciouBnesa, self-ques?
tioning, self doubting, and self-glory
I ing are all takon away. Self-hood has
fled, Ulrrselt has possession. Our
spiritual condition is totally different
from formerly. The low state of Chris?
tian character has given placo to the
higher. The change has come. Fear
is cast out. Difficulties are mot as soon
as they arise, and mot successfully.
Dangers melt like snow before the sun.
Wo wonder as do others at the wlBdom,
oourago and power Imparted, not realiz?
ing it is not of us, but of Him. Oh the
change! We ondeavorod but failed;
now, whatever wo do, prospers. We
talked and urged and preached with no
results; now His utterances toll, and
His word returns not void.
From weakness we are changed to
power. His, not ours; not cultivated
but received; a gift, a gift of God. This
change on, sr In us, works changes in
others. The church becomes quickened
and '/Aon rejoices. The Holy Ghost be?
comes known; "The Comforter haa
come," the Administrator is allowed to
take His own place; to do His work, In
His time, in His way; Ho is to convict
and convince; to convert, or to condemn.
His, also, is the work of Sanotlhoation,
to Boparate by holiness, (not ours, His,)
for holiness, to His honor and glory.
He le our righteousness and sanotifloa?
tion. Then begins tho upbuilding time,
developing, enlarging, widening, deep?
ening; and this for a habitation of God
in the Spirit. Now inside, enthroned,
He becomes tho Wilier,
He wills, as He wills, and is allowed
to do so. Wo let nothing intervene, we
permit nothing to Interfere His will is
paramount; It is all, In all. Our will is
lost and Bwallowed up In His. He does
all. Now He beoomes the Causer and
causes us. We are Ills, and He con?
trols. We are continually giving Him
more and more of ourselves, so as to
make more and moro room for Him. He
fills, then Ho enlarges, then fills, again
and again. Wo had Ulm before, but
now lie ovortlows, He baptizss, im
