tee this mornltig President Folk said their
purpose was to urge prompt action on the Sil
ver bill by the oommlttce The difficulty ns to
when bearing should cease was Immediately I
enconnteied Mr Bland wanted a day Ilxed
Mr Vaux wanted nothing to be done which
would prevent a hearing to b given to the
Philadelphia Board of Trade next Wednesday
John M Forbes of Now York who li I engaged
In thoChlna and India trade said that all our
exchanges In silverusing countries wece goy
evened by tho gold value ot silver In London
Wheat cotton and oil were our chief exports
nnd its our chief competitors in these articles
were India Kcypt nnd Iliissla trado would be
ferlnnsly airectod by silver Itfulslntloti With

n silver basis Our cotton wheat and oil ate
measured by the value ot the ptodncts 01 our
sllvotiislnit competitors for the valnn ot limo
wholo of stay commodity was governed by the I
value of Its exports Hunpose he said
that by legislation the United Slates
raises the Vliut of silver to 129 or 25 per
cent This country would not get the benefit
01 the whole of that but It la well within the
fiats to assume that wo could get ten per cant
or It That would amount to nn Increase In
the valws 01 our wheat crop of tlSuooooo In
our cotton crop ot 4iuiooooo and In our
petroleum product of til600noo The silver
law of lat Congress Intronsed the trade with
China at leant 20 per cent He did not believe
pr fnt bleo
sliver would flow her from Mlveruslug
countries if the mint were opened without
thing limit exported because currency was always the last
Mr liland then moved that hearings close

vowed any intention to smother the bill but
declared he would insist on bearings until t
July nextlt need bo In ordor to get 1nl

lose nothing by this because they would ba
stronger In the next Congress than in Ibis Mr

The free coinage Republican Senator have
dddol that they will not press the amend

of I free coinage provision The reason for
this decision Is n fear that sentimental consid

where SenltorRor hiepresentetivee have strong

of the Senate are just as explicit against the
attaching of riders to appropriation bills an
the House rules aro They provide that io

I was already a long session when tbe anti
ot the calendar was reached but the amend

and provoked the usual discussion They are
Intended to remove the complications In con
ducting town elections There Is practically no
difference between tbo two paitloB regarding
these amendments but there was a great deal
of political talk each side being anxious to
snow that It a not responsible for tho objec
tionable features of tbe bill A debate on these
lines was participated in by loaders McClelland
and Aoker nnd Messrs Illtt MoMahon and
Deyo and then both sides vOle tor the amendments
A concurrent resolution from the Senate was
also passed I called upon the llopresenta

Mr Vedders resolutions asking for informa

in the Senate Senator Cantor wanted know
whether all tbe Information desired by the In
quiry was not contained in the annual report
of the Assessors Whether I wa or not he
thought that there was little to be gained by

She fair a shadow on the glass of the door
and knew that some person wan standing In

footsteps hastily descending the steps
The young woman opened that door and saw

afraid to talk
Situ said that her name was Marguerite
Hchmldt and that several rears ago she came
to this country with her husband who WW a
laborer Things did not go well with them
and her husband had hard work supporting
Item and her little boy Several mouths ago
she found that she would soon be a mother

and began to wander about tho streets
JtonistltneA she and her littio boy slept In

The time ot her confinement came mi and she
looked about for 1 place to leave her Ilttlo boy
while site gave birth to another Infant to add

She llnally found some people In Thirty
ninth street who woi e willing to look after tbo
buy for a few days Then elm went out to look
for a place for herself and the child that was

noon she was allowed to go Into a Hark and
damp cellar In Thirtyninth street where no

Mclndoe was a receiving clork After they bad
been locked up each of the prisoners broke
down mind their joint confessions not only ex
poiod time method of their thefts but Impli
cated about a dozen other clerks and laborers
employed on tho piers
It appears that when they found a psege
containing artl theyt houghttheyoouici di
posopf one of the wolghuing cleka would
out stockings or whatever the case con
tamed and that case would be set to one side
Then at an opportune moment would be
opened by ono of his confederates by meant of
nard wooden wedges which would force tie
box apart without bruising it Then as much
of the contents would be taken as they though
could bo done with safety and the box would
be nailed UP again and sent to Its destination
When It ntrlved at Its purchasers store a
comparison with the bill of lading would show
that it was short several articles Claims for
shortage would bn made un the shipper and
ho would charge his porter with neglect Had
not the thlovos become emboldened by their
success thoy mleht have carried on their oper
ations much longer As It was they did not
use discrimination and robbed several paca >
ages in succession belonging to the same
house and then the railroad company was
called on and had to make good the shortages
When the three men were arrested each lIed
stolen goods such aa suspenders soft hats
