THAD STEVENS' TESTIMONY IJf BEHALF OF THE PEO PLE OF THE U. 8. WHEN THE ORE ENB. / X WAS STABBED BY THE REAL TRAITORS. Mr. Speaker, I have a very few j words to say. 1 approach the sub- j ject with more depression of spirits than I ever approached any ques tion. No personal motives influ ences me. I have a melancholy foreboding that we are about to con-' sumate a cunningly devised scheme, which will carry great injury and j great loss to all classes of people throughout this union, except one. | With my colleague,! believe that no act of legislature was, ever hail ed with as much delight throughout the length and breadth of this Un- j ion, by every class of people with out exception, as the bill which was passed and sent to the Senate. Congratulations from all classes —merchants, traders, manufactur ers, mechanics, and laborers — poured in upon us from all quarters. The board of trade from Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Cincinnati Louisville, St. Louis, Chicago, and Milwaukee approved and urged its passage as it was. 1 have a dispatch from the chamber of commerce, Cincinnati, sent to the treasurer,, and by him to me, urging the pas-j sage of the bill as it passed the, House. It is true there was a dole- j ful sound came up from the bullion | brokers and and from the saloons • oi the associated banks. Their cashiers and agents were j soon on the ground and persuaded I the Senate, with but little delibera tion, to mangle and destroy what it cost the House months to digest consider, and pass. I They fell upon the bill in hot haste, and so disgraced and deform ed it that its father would not know it. Instead of being a beneficient ! and invigorating measure, it. is posi ! tively mischievous. ' It has all the bad qualities which . • its enemies charged on the old bill, | and none of its benefits. It now creates money, and by its j very terms declares it a depreciated currency. It makes two classes of i money, one for banks and brokers, and another for the people. It d|s crMafttoe between tbe rights »l! different classes of creditors, allow ing the capitalists to demand gold and compelling the ordinary lender of money on individual security to receive notes which the government had purposely discredited. All classes of people shall take these legal-tender notes at par for every article of trade or contract, unless they have money enough to buy United States bonds, and then they shall be paid in gold. Who is that favored class? The banks and brokers and nobody else.—.Speech j in the House, Feb. 20, 18G2. Some More Statements. Editor Dawn: In you hist issue there appeared a statement oyer the signature of Mr. A. O. \Vishard,our city marshal, in which he declares that he served a quarantine notice upon Mr. Mich els, understanding that the latter was a trustee of the Catholic church. Subsequent to the serving of this notice both the Health Officer, who instructed Mr. Wishard and Mr. Belt who was misinformed, found out that above named understanding, in which the City Marshal now shares, was a very essential mis understanding. Instead of promptly correcting their mistake and therewith drop the whole matter, they cling to their mistaken notions and now trot out the City Marshal to sup port the Health Officer, and pull a misled preacher out of a very uncomfortable position. Under certain circumstances Mr. Wish ard's acti»n may be very com mendable, but he certainly lays himself open to very just criticism, when he tries to justify Mr. Belt's statements by doing violence to the truth, by implicating innocent parties and laying words in their mouths which they never uttered. Mr. Wishard lays special stress upon the fact that he understood Mr. Michels to be a trustee, to which the latter said. "Yes." Then he concludes that he would not have considered his duty done, nor have left the notice with him if he had not given him to understand that he was a trustee of the church, and then lie draws the conclusion that he ''Gave Rev. S. D. Belt above inforrtoationfivhich in so far warrant foe jWlapcivti vwM m W'hpever controls the voJun%. of money in any country is ab r . solute master of industry a:id[ commerce.—Jas. A. Garfield. point in a precious issue." To this statement of Mr. Wishard, 1 attach the following remarks: 1. Some two weeks ago Mr. Wishard stopped me on the street and after some introdctory rem irks, told me: "Well 1 had nothing to do, with all this; Dr. Gray gave me ' the notice and told me to give it to, Michels, and so I did." Whereupon, I said: "Well, then you have done your duty, and that is all." The. word trustee was not even hinted at. 2. At the election of trustees last fall, Mr. Michels positively refused to be again put up as a. candidate for said trustee office, and was very well pleased to give that office to some one else. In the light of this it would seem strange that when five months later the City Marshal asked Mr. Michels, "Are you a trustee," —the later would say: "Yes." 3. Mr. Michels positively denies having heard such a question, or. having given such an answer, ancjj he even says that the word trustee was not mentioned by either him or the City Marshal. 4. Mr. M. Pott, a well-known farmer, who has lived here over ten years, was in company with Mr. Michels, when the City Marshal served the quarantine notice and Mr. Pott repeated last Sunday what conversation had been held by the City Marshal and Mr. Michels, but, he says, not a word was said about church trustee. With these remarks upon the City Marshal's statement, 1 will let the. public judge, where the truth lies. My special point in this matter is, to not allow any false premises to pass unnoticed, when afterwards they might be used to build upon them the conclusion, that in view of these statements made and given, the Rev. S. D. Belt was justified to, make the false statements against us, which Up has as yet failed to, retract. Respectfully, L. Xl t steks. A silver medal contest will be held this evening at 8 o'clock in the Methodist church. The voting women that make up the class are mostly from the Normal and have gifts of eloquence that must, persuade their hear ers to support any great cause they advocate.
