Ibo Gri-enbaokcrs ami tboas Democrats who want to pay off tho bonds immedi? ately and oppos? any issue of new bonds, set up a cry fur free speech and demanded more time. Mr. Kelley's friends said that he had a speech prepared in favor of his own proposition which ho wished to deliver, and that he was abaent through illness.
