WaxhixwT'i*. Sept. I.—ln the sen

of the'.ulfof Mexico, and »u«ge*t
ing that no senator, representative or
delegate t* electe>i who i* not known
to be honestly in favor of an appro
priation for that purpose and will not
work for it earnestly and faithfully.
He also presented a memorial on the
-ame subject from the deep-water
harlior committee of Galveston, am!
asked that it 1* printed in the Record

Cullora offered * rasoluifan. which

daring tru-t- unlawful, and had it re
ferred to the committee on finance.
He alluded san-a-tit-ally to < icve
l land'* remark* on being informed of
hit nomination at St. Louis, wherein .
he «aid the feeling of awe with which
he had heard of his first nomination
had not t>een intensified.
ilamb -aid he could understand
that remark in view of the "pulling
and hauling of the dirty-sock Democ
racy, which had liecn h-aiigrv for 31
year-.." He also brought up cireuni
stances connected with the removal of
' District Attorney P-enton of M:s-otiri
and District Attorney Stone of I'enn

duties, in order to make partisan
speech**, she former having rieen re

Although Benton had maligned the
administration, the latter, who hail
not maligned (he administration, had
not been reinstated. He merely
wanted to show that the comparison
brought forward yesterdav by Vest to '
show the impartiality of Cleveland
di<l not compare.
In Vest's reply to Plumb he treated
the lVnton and Stone matter a- "a
threshing out of old straw." and in-!
i identallj" the politic* of the St. I>wi
newspajier-. from which Mr. Plumb!
had quoted extract.* were brought in. I
Vest then referred to the Foster
circular, containing remarks of a Re
publican senator as to "frying the fat "
out of protected manufacturer*, and
said that if senators were to indulge
in crimination and recrimination it
would l»e interesting to know what
enator had made use of that lan- j
guasre. The two -enator* from Ver-'
inont had denied that they ha I made
such a statement, and the question ,
now was who had made it. When j
the question was answered, he (Vest)|
would go farther into the detail* ot :
the pending campaign.
Reagan denounced the Republican
parte for its legislation on the green -
hack question and silver coinage ques
tion, and was followed in the same di
rection b> Stewart, who ext>re--ed l-.i
syrapathv with the view* of the Texas
-enator on that legislation.
Reagan retorted on Stewart an I ex
pres-ed -urpri-e that the Nevada «ena
inr could a t with the Republican
party, which had cau-ed the very eon
•dtion of tilings which he lamented.
Mew art -aid that two things recon
ciled him with his party. He knew
i 'leveland would veto anv bill for the •
lr>- - MinaMof 4w,HI that ll .rri
son wot;l 1 not vet* -nch a bill Stewart
l deplore i the js>- ability of Cleveland'-
election, which would, he*aid. prevent
the -cttlement of the silver qui'-tion
in the next t' years, l-ecause Clave
land *»- in favor of a single col-1
-tandard an>i of payment of go: 1 in
gold. Why was the senator from i
Texas supporting such an ndroini-tra
tion, favoring a single gold standar .
and tree trade?
Reagan an-wered that it wa- be
cause he saw Harrison wa- the repre
rentative of a cla«-interest at the ex
pense of the people.
Tlx 1 re-oluiioi went over without;
action, and the senate re-umed con

hibit I hinese immigration, and;

WtMllCTul, Sept. 4. Kelly of
Pennsylvania offered a resolution, di
m-ling the -pecial committee on in
vestigation oi the nm.<tncta of the
new library building, to in juire
whether any member of the house has,
by himself or in combination with
others. sought by persuasion, intimi
dation or corrupt or improper means,
to influence J. L. Smithmeyer, the
architect, in the selection, acceptance
or approval of inferior or improper
material to be used in the construc
tion of this building.
Kelley stated that he made the pro-
I»o.itiori to the bou-e on information
which be received iu the early part of
the .-es-ioti. and which had been cor
roborated by increasing testimony and '
additional fact.-. He would name the
member when be apjieared before the
lilonut of Cieorgia intimated that
this charge was brought at the instiga
tion of Sinithmever as an offset.
Kelly declared the offering of hi
re-olution his own act, the result of:
his own cool, calm, long-intended pur
pose to have the county, know some
of the facts that came to his know
ledge early in the *e*d-n. Neither
Smithmeyer nor any other human !
being than himself was respou-rjle
for the conception of the charge or
the manner in which it had been j
made. He alone claimed ali the honor
or ail disgrace.
It was finally decided that a new
committee 1* appointed, it lieing inti
mated that the member referred to by j
Kelly was a member of the present
Towushend of Illinois submitted a
! conference report on the army appro
priation bill.
Agreement was reached on all the
amendments except those relating to
ihe establishment of a gnu factory
' and the manufacture of ordnance. A
further conference was ordered
The hmi e then proceeded to e >n
' sideratlon of the retaliation bill.
Belmont of New York, chairman o! j
the committee on foreign affair-, j
opened the debate by recalling the
fact that he introduced a bill last I
year similar to that under considera
tion, and approving the terms of the
pending measure an i recommending
its passage.
McCreary of Kentucky, said the
president's views, as expressed in In
-1 message, should I* upheld by the
| country. The message, together with
•the message on the taritf. would be re
membered forever. The president
would have been subjected tocriti' ism
tf he had en leavored to retaliate
against Canada without special au
thority. Mct'reary discussed the mo
tive o! the various treaties, and ;
tombed up m the outrages committed
on American fishing vessels by Cana
dian official s.
Hitt of Illinoiscommenfe 1 upon the
fact that the president's fisheries mes
sage had lieen read with partisan ap
pllu-e. and that a Democratic mem
ber had declared that it was a good
campaign document. The gentleman j
from Kentucky (Mi rearv) connected J
the message on the fisheries with what j
was known as the "free trade me - j

"My friends. 1 am glad to know that
th? people are m ived to tho ightful
consideration of the oae-tion* which
are this year pn-sente 1 for determina
• tion. I'nder a popular government
like ours it is of the tir-t importance
that every man who votes
-hould have -ome reason for hi
vote. 1 think it is univer
sally conceded, by Democrats as
well as Republican*, that the ques-'
tions involved in this campaign have a
; direct bearing upon nati nal prtmper
ity and upon the pro peri ty and we!-:
fare of the individual i-itizen. I think
it is conceded that the re-ult of the

"I want to ca I your«Uention to a
few general fat t and principles. The
] Condition of the wage- .', orkers of i
America i- liett- r than that of the ,
workers of any other country in the
world. If that lie true it is important
that you should each find out why it
is so: that each of you should 5
determine what effect a protective'
tariff has had and is likely to have on
his wages and his prosperity. Doc- it j
need to be demonstrated that if we re
duce the taritf to revenue level; i. we
| abolish from it every consideration of'
prot -ction. more go als will come from
abroad than come in now; andwh.it
.is the necessary effect? It is a trans
fer to foreign shop- of the work vou
need here. It is to diminish American
. production and increase English pro
j auction. That is to !>e the effect.
It is not worth while to stand njion
a nice definition as to free trade.
Some think it enough to say they are
not free trade- l*ra'i«e they are not
infavor of abolishing all customs duties.
I,et me rcmin i such that the free
trade countries of Euro|ie, recognized
to lie such, have not alsilishe I ail c is
tonis duties. A lielter distinction i
thi-: The free trader Id eves in levy
ing customs duties without any re
zard to the effect of those dn
! tie- on the wages of our work
! p'op'e or upon the production
jof our own hops. This is the issue;
take it to your homes. Then- are
uianv confusing and contradictory
statements made in the public
press and by public speaker-. I
I Ask any of those who a -ail
i our protective system whether
; thevdo not helicv.' that i; their v
is adopted a larger amount o' foreign
' made go<vls will come into the
countrv. It is their purpose to in
i crease importation in order to cheap
•en prices. I think I may safely
ask you to consider the qti"-
i tion whether this cheapening of j
j prices, which thev seem to regard
a the higlie-t attainment of -tci;-
1 man-hip, is consistent with the rale \
| of waire. oar w irk people enjoy now;
whe her it will not lie involved i' we
arc to hava foreign competition with- ;
out favoring Untie- a reduction of
American wages to the standard of !
wages paid a .road.
••"Do you believe for one moment j
! that the two factories making the I
j same product ctn be maintained in j
i competition where o-e pays ;« per
.•cnt. more to the workman than the '
other? It is not certain that wa •••« j
