The request was agreed to.
Mr llansbroiigh, Republican, North

agreed to, requesting of the state de

Mr. Sewell (Republican, New Jer
sey) offered a resolution declaratory
of the policy of thu United State* on
the Monroe doctrine a* follows:
"Resolved, That the Monroe doctrine
os originally propounded was directed
to the special prevention of the threat
ened action of the allied powers in
reference to the revolted colonies of
Spain, and the occupation by way of
colonization of any derelict territory
on tills hemisphere, to resist such ac
tion by armed force if necessary,
"Thai the executive lias pressed the
Monroe doctrine beyond what wa*
contemplated at the time of it* an
nouncement and that, the resultant
ar'pienee of the position thu* taken
seem* to be a committal of thl* gov
ernment to a protectorate over Mex
ico and Central and South American
state*.
"That thl* would lie most unwise
and dangerous, and would violate the
sound and well established policy that
we should avoid all entangling al
liances with foreign powers, whether
they lie European or American.
"That this action was premature,
looking to the history of the contro
versy and Inopportune in view of the
business and financial condition of the
country.
"'I'hat neither congress nor the
country can be nor ha* been com
mitted by the action or position of the
executive department in reference to
the Venezuelan boundary controversy
as to tbe course to be pursued until
the time shall have arrived for a final
determination, ft will then be our

arid to take such action a* rnay then

Mond Syndicate 0U,'»
New Yiihk, .lull. In. — Mo in liar* of
the Government bond syndicate re
ceived in tbeir mail thia morning a
circular letter from J. I*. Morgan A Co.,
releaaing them from thelrcommltm*nts
to furnish their pro rata of 00.000,
000 in gold and a second $l00,000,o00
if they desired, taking their payment
therefor in four per cent Government
bonda Accompanying this letter was
a circular explaining how the syndi
cate was formed, what action was
taken on its behalf, and why it is now
dissolved.
“On the 23d of December," Mr, Mor
gan says, “i was invited to Washing
ton for a conference. Ouring my visit
there no negotiations for u loan were
even suggested, nor was there then,
nor has there been since, any agree
ment or request that 1 should take
any steps preparatory to making a
contract. 1 came, however, to the
conclusion that the President and sec
retary of tbe treasury would use every
power at. their command to restore
and iiiaintaln tbe gold reserve; tliat. no
steps would he taken until it was as
certained what Congress would do;
that tiie executive department would
prefer to secure $200,000,000 of gold,
and tliat it was certain that no relief
could be obtained from Congress.
"Upon my return, appreciating the
gravity of tiie situation and in order
. tliat, J might he prepared to act
promptly, I took steps to ascertain to
what extent it would he |>oftxiblc to
secure tiie co-operation of capitalists
! in forming a syndicate which would
agree to sell to the l.nited Males gov
ernment $2oojtoO,ooO of gold coin. The
contract, prepared and signed hy the
participants did not. stipulate whether
i the purchase would he hy private eon
| trad or hy public offer,
j "The only provision in addition to
' the important one tliat no gold should
! he withdrawn from the treasury was
' that tiie minimum amount of tiie con
{ tract should be $100,000,000, the msxi
: mum not over $£$0,000,000. The ap
; plications far exceeded my expecta
\ lions. At the end of three or four
; days tbe total of $200,000,000 was
reached, and I had full authority
which would enable me whenever and
; however the Executive might decide
I to act to secure that amount of gold
for the treasury reserve In exchange
for United States bonds
I "Having completed the formation of
tbe syndicate, 1 entered into negotla
! tiona in Europe and in places other
than Condon, where the market was
closed to us. and through the Deutsche
hank and Messrs Morgan, Harjes Sc
Co. Negotiations were practically
concluded for public subscriptions in
Germany. France and Holland, which
would have resulted in a large amount
of bonds being placed in those coun
tries.
| "On January 4, realizing that the
tension was growing daily and had
become serious, I addressed a letter to
; the president, calling his attention to
the situation and representing that
the most important step was tiie re
storation of the government credit hy
replenishing the stock of gold. De
tails of what was proposed were given
and assurances offered that the utmost
efforts would he made to procure for
tbe treasury 11,500,000 ounces of gold.’’
The reason given for the disso
lution of the syndicate ia that the con
tract called for a hid of "all or none,”
and therefore Mr. Morgan was un
willing to make a hid under the pres
ent circumstances, as he might seem
to desire the secretary of the treasury
to throw out smaller bids made in
good faith under the public calL The
only emergency, in Mr. Morgan's Judg
ment. which would justify such a
course, would be the failure of the
putdic to respond to the call of the
government.
| The circular concludes: "I feel per
fectly satisfied that there ia no ques
tion as to tiie success of the loan."

Mr. Mills of Texas, Democrat, then
took tin- floor in support of his renolu

the long continued antagonism to sil

accumulation of silver in tin* treasury
vaults, one lie said, to the powerful
corporation influence in this country
claiming the prerogative of issuing
money to expand and contract as they
pleased. The National hank idea was
not a Democratic idea, the Democratic
policy favoring the retention by the
government and the people of tbe
money-making prerogative.
Mr. Mills showed the expansion*
and contractions of the circulation
made by hanks and said this system
was now to he perpetuated by further
issues of bonds. He spoke about an

Speaker Slee;ier in the House, after

name a Republican from Ohio to suc
ceed Mr. Krlce. Sherman, since the
war, had hail a Democratic colleague,
but Ohio proposed to “break tha
record with a record breaker." (Ap
plause.) There had been no caucus;
none was needed; Korakar’a face end
voice were familiar in every countv of
Ohio. Ha bad run for governor four
times and though defeated twice ha
appeared to-day In the phenomenal
position of being the people's cholee
without a caucus
Senator llysell. in presenting tha
name of Mr. lirice, made use of
words, extolling the Senator as though
he were a "sure winner." The Senator
was not asking the compliment of this
vole, but was the Democratic Senator
from Ohio, lie had never been silent
when the voice of ills party nad called.
Joseph Henson Koraker was horn
July 6, 1**1, on a farm In Highland
county, Ohio. July 14, IM2, when only
past his •tixiirrni.il ini i unity, ne enusv
ed ss the first private In Company A,

made orderly sergeant of the company
for having secured the most recruits,
lie was promoted to ho first lieutenant

snd bloody eainpuign which culmi
nated at Atlanta, and waa an aide on
the staff of Major General Slocnm of
New York, during the march to the sea
and the brief and brilliant campaign
from Savannah to the Carolina*. lie
was mustered out, tlie last man in hia
regiment, June 13, I8d!», with the
brevet rank of captain. He wa* not
then quite UO years old. He immedi
ately resumed hi* atudle*. and no weii
made up the time *p«ul in the army
that he graduated with honors from
the Cornell university in 1889, and wae

MORGAN ON SILVER.
H* Say* That. Sherman Is a VInane*
Napoleon Near III* Waterloo.
Wasiiimotox, Jan. I #. —Senator Mor
gan's speech on the ulvor bond bill
was tlie event of tbe Hen ate yesterday,
although a sharp personal colloquy
between Mr. Hill, Mr. liutler and Mr.
Pritchard enlivened the early hours.
Mr. Morgan frequently addressed him
self personally to Mr. Sherman, who
■at across the aisle, and for two hour*
arraigned the Ohio senator for tbe
series of financial acts with which he
is identified. At times Mr. Morgan
was bitterly personal, lie referred to
Mr. Hhermau as the Napoleon of
fiuance who wa* near his Waterloo,
anil who would be consigned to St.
Helena. In the main, however, tbe
speech was a scholarly presentation of
tne silver question. Mr. Uill’s oollo
quy with the two North Carolina sen
ators brought out considerable discus- •
siou of tlie New York senator's polit
ical consistency, and was amusing to
tlie galleries for the sharp sallies and
witty rejoinders during the triangular
tie bate.
The vice president laid before tbe
senate a letter from the secretary of
tlie treasury in reply to a resolution of
Inquiry presented by Mr. 1‘effer as to
whether »lc>o,ooo,000 In gold had at
auy time beuu set apart from other
funds. The horrelary states that this
him never hcimi done, mere uemg no
provision of law authorising it.
