SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1891 hvnwomus Senate Silver Bill Reported Un favorably to House. SUNDRY CIVIL BILL AMENDED. Appropriation for Purchase of Fort Orchard Site Cut to SIO,OOO. Ki-Govsrasr Charles Foster, of Ohio Appointed Secretary of the Treasury —Democrats Oppose Nicaragua Canal In Senate—Filibustering in House. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 21.—The adverse re port of the majority of the Ilotfse coinage com mittee on the hfeuate free coinage bill, says in part: "Under the present act |54,000.000 annually is being added to the volume of the currency of the country iu the form of treasury notes for bullion purchased. This largely exceeds the contraction in the way of retirement of bank notes, and in ten years would at the same rate gradually add to the volume of the currency, above the amount .>f bank notes, should they all be retained, $360,000,000. The secretary of the treasury states that the amount of the surplua of silver in the world, above the amount used in the arts and coinage, in all other countries than thol'uitcd States wa.«, ior IH.XB, 139,500,000. If this estimate is correct, under the present law theic is a provision for using the world's sur plus, which is ail that unlimited coinage could accomplish. It is said, however, that the de mand of the present law does not call for all the silver surplus, and that there is now "bearing" the market 15,000,000 ounees, which is sufficient to keep-down the price of sil vei to its present selling figure. Whether these 15,000,000 ounces arc likely to remain a threat to the market, or whether they are used by design ing persons as a temporary means to depress the price, is a matter upon which intelligent per sons who have appeared before the committee diner. This can be determined by a contiuuance of the present policy of buying uo more than the 4,'100.000 ounces monthly providing for bvthe existing law. If the pressure of the 15,000,000 ounces is continued only for the purpose of ef fecting some change in the legislation, it will soou be permitted to go its way: if, on the other hand, it is an actual excess over the demand, it will be easy at any future time for <-ongrcss to provide for its absorption into the volume of the currency. Treasary notes issued under the present law are legal tender. This Is the highest function that could be given silver under free coinage, so that under the existing law we have provision for the use of all silver that would be brought to the mints under free coin age (assuming the world's surplus to be as al ready stated). The money issued has all the legal qualities and purchasing powers of coined money, and in addition is confined practically to the American product, so the United States is out of all the danger so strenuously insisted upon by many |>ersons, of the flooding of our market with the silver of the world. The pres ent law, at the time of its passage, was declared by many ardent supporters of free coinage to be satisfactory. The conditions are substantially the same as then. If the present law, when passed, promised to all intents and purposes the use of the American product and authorized the issue of money as good for all purposes as coined silver, it is not now evident to the committee wherein it has failed in its promise, nor where it is in the future likely to fail to accomplish that desirable end. BISATE PROCEEDINGS. Teat and Turpfe Violently Oppose the Nicaragua Canal Bill. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 21.—The sundry civil appropriation bill was reported. The Nicaragua canal bill was taken up and Morgan addressed the Senate in defense of Ed munds, referring to the misunderstanding as to : the amount of capital stock subscribed for by the construction company (it appearing in the committee's report as He said he had a telegram from the president of the com paying, saying that it was misprint for 91,000,000. Commenting on Vest's references to the Clay ton Bulwer treaty, Morgan asked whether sena tors were to take ofl' their hats to Victoria, and say "By leave of your majesty." -'That, he said, was not the American view of the question. It bad not been BO ssuce the davs of President* Monroe, and never would be. Not a move had ever been made iu the Senate in the direction which the bill aimed at, that had not been met by somebody with a threat of the Clavton-Bul wer treaty. He was tired of it. The subsidy argument was totally irrelevant becanse the United States would never have to pay a dollar of it. The bill did not infringe on a'uy of the conditions of the treaty. Uc repudiated that treaty as having been a fraud at the time it was made, and having been ruthlessly and auda ciously violated by the British government since that time. Vest said there could not be a more unfavor able time for such a bill, when the Farmers' Alliance were demanding legislation considered visionary. It would never do to refuse that legislation and at the same time guarantee 9100,- 00(1,000 of the bonds of a corrnany organised in New York to be spent on foreign" territory, and in the employment of Jamaica negroes, "dagos," Indians and Chinamen. > Turpie st>oke against the bill, declaring him self against any subsidy schemes. Stewart's amendments providing that the chief of engineers of the armv shall have super vision and control of the canal was disagreed to, 23 to 25. The bill then went over without action. The conference report on the navy appropria tion bill was agreed to. Adjourned. NOMINATIONS. Charles Foster, of Ohio, to be secretary of the treasury; Msrtin A. Knapp. of New York, to be interstate commerce commissioner. HOISE PROCEEDINGS. Democratic Filibustering Continued- Bill Fixing .fudges' Salaries Passed. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb.2l.-In tbe House this morning there was a stormy time over the ap proval of the journal. Pithian and Springer insisted on having it read in full, and several Democrats protected vigorously against the action of the speaker in counting them to make a quorum yesterday. Turner of t.eorgia said he had voted for the yeas and nays, and then left the House in as dignified a manner as possible. McKinley got the floor and would not yield to any of the Democrats and a tremendous uproar ensued, in the midst of which Spinola, placing a strip of paper on his shoulder, threateningly turned that shoulder toward the Republicans. The acting speaker pro tem (Payson) called him to order. Finally the journal was approved and the Senate bill tiling the salaries of United states district Judge* at |.%IW> was taken up, with Me- Millms amendment to reduce the salaries to M.UJO. and I>. J. Taylor's amendment that the present salaries be increased Ijoo. Both were defeated ami the bill passed. The House went into committee of the whole of the postoflice appropriation bill, after voting dowu a motion by ilolman to adjourn After considerable discussion the bill was laid aside with H favoraMe recommendation. « annon called up the deficiency appropriation bill, but aster n loot discussion as to the limita tion oi debate the committee rose and the House ndj urned without disposing of the iKJStoOii'e appropriation bill.

Engineer* Report on Hydraulic Mining. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 21.— Th6 secretary of war today submitted to congress the report of the commission of army engineers which in vestigated the raining debris question in Cali fornia. The report says: Hydraulic mining can be prosecuted without injury to farming lands or rivers in the mining region of the Klamath and its tributaries. The navigation of rivers in the Sacramento valley, it says, has been injured by hydraulic mining through the deposit of vast quantities of mining debris in the valleys oi tne Sacramento ana Feather rivers, in addition there are vaat de posits of material which will be carried down during floods, and eventually loat in these streams. It is proposed to improve the rivers, first, by restraining the debris now lodged in the canons of the Yuba and Bear, aud in the plains below, by dams and other restraining means; second, by contracting the width of the rivers by brusn wing-dams in their beds. The system of re straint will be continued until the rivers in their improved condition can carry the material brought down. Estimates for these improve meuts are: Feather river, wing-dams, $»X).000; Sacramento river, wing-dams, 1300,000; dam on Yuba river at Dezucrns point, from *OOO,OOO to 1610,000, according to height: dam on Bear river at Van Giesens, $l- r >o,000; restriction works on the Yuba, below the foothills, 1300,000, and 120,000 annually for maintaining navigation on the Feather.

Typhoid Fewer Laughs at Silent Prayer —Death the Result of Faith. DES MOINES, Feb. 21.— Much interest is felt here in the investigation of the death of Will iam Protzman, who, it was alleged, died under Christian science treatment. Protzman was 24 years old and had good health until l>ecember 17 last, when he was attacked with colic, which grew into typhoid fever. The jury found he had received no medical treatment except "silent prayer;" that dietary rules were disre farded, and that he WHS otherwise neglected, he conclusion of the jury is that Protzman came to his death by reason of the practicing upon him of the teaching of an association of persons calling themselves "Christian Scien tist®," and from no other cause. The jury further says that, in their opinion, Protzman would have lived had proper treatment been given him. It is expected arrests will be mads later on. THE SOCKLESS LEGISLATURE.

A Sorrowful Army Marches Through the Streets of St. Louis, Kseortlng the Dust of the Conqueror—The Gen eral's Son Reads the Catholle Service. ST. LOUIS, Feb. 21.— St. Louis today bade an impressive farewell to General Sherman. For the first time in several days the sun shone out gloriously, but its rays fell upon a city draped in mourning. The hearts of the people were sad denea, and with one accord all manner of men abandoned their earthly pursuits and assembled along the line of the funeral procession to do homag% to the honored dead. It was a soldier's funeral, the funeral of a general, but not alone of one whose last journey waa attended with honors due his rank, but of an officer beloved by the army and honored by the people. For miles the streets were lined with a solid wall of peo ple, standing at least a dozen deep. The grief of those in the procession was not alone genuine, but apparent to everyone. The dead general's comrades of Ransom Post marched in a hollow square about the caisson, and every face wore that solemn look which said too plainly for words, "I have lost a friend." Following the caisson was a handiul of the old Thirteenth infantry, Sherman's first com mand in the war, a small and grief-stricken body of men, following their oldVader over a road which they too must travel at no very dis tant day. There were besides thousands of vet erans of the war, members of the Grand Army, old and grizzled comrades in arms of the dead general. Slowly they walked, and only too plainly was it written that the ravages of time were fast depleting their ranks. Yet none of them were so old or feeble that they would ad mit, even to themselves, that they were taxing their strength in followiug Sherman to Calvary, even as they had followed him to Savannah. While there was no order, in the full sense of the word, the jam of people coming in from the various intersecting streets when the procession started was something terrible. On Pine street alone it was estimated there were gathered over 100,000 people. Marching through Pine street the magnificence of the military display waa best seen. Truly it was Just what the old hero wanted—a military funeral. The heavy rumble of artillery, the clatter of cavalry horses' hoofs on the pavement, mingled with the clang and jingle of the sabre and spar, and steady tramp, tramp of infantry, as the column passed, made a spectacle never to be forgotten. The train carrying the remains of General Sherman left Indianapolis last night at 11 p. m. and members of the party retired for the night soon after. When Terre Haute was reached, at 12:07 a. m., their slumber was disturbed by heavy discharges of a battery saluting the train. Notwithstanding the hour 2,000 people were at the station, and another stop of an hour wss made. All through the rest of the night the train sped on. Just after sunrise, at \ andalia, 111., the heavy discharge of cannon awakened all on the train. A stop of twenty minutes was made to afford the peo;le a chance to see the casket At every little cro i s road, as the train neared here, were groups of people. All stood uncovered, as the train passed. This mark of respect was universal during the entire trip from New York. East St Louis was reached at 8:15. A large crowd, mostly railroad men, was gathered here. After a few momenta' stop the train started across the bridge. Flags all over the city were at half-mast. Many of the buildings and stores were draped in mourning, and black-framed portraits of the dead general could be seen in numberless win dows. Business in the city was entirely sus pended, and the streets filled with neople. The day was all that could be far as sunshine and cool, clear air w«t3c>; but the streets were very muddy from the recent rainstorms. To this storm is due largelv the meager mourning decorations. At the union depot and in all the streets in the vicinity im mense crowds of people were assembled. The funeral train arrived at 8:30. As it crossed the bridge a salute from a battery announced its approach. Emerging from the tunnel the train was compelled to proceed slowly while the police cleared the track of people. When the train reached tne platform Governor Francis, who was there with his staff and mem bers of the reception committee, paid his re spects to Generals Scbofieldand Howard and the other military officers accompanying the funeral party. After an exchange of greetings it was announced that everything was in readiness for the funeral procession. Meanwhile the military were moved into posi tion. The caisson on which the body was to be borne was standing in readiness. It was drawn by six bay horses, the riders of which were men, who worked the Hotchkiss gun at the massacre of Wounded Knee, in the recent Indian war. The body-bearers were eight sergeants, four from the Seventh cavalry and four from Battery E, of the First artillery. In front of the caisson was the Twelfth infan try. from Fort Leavenworth, drawn up in line. Facing the depot on the opposite side of the street was Ramson post, G. A. R., which acted as guard of honor. The horse that was led be lied the caisson, equipped with the dead gen eral's saddle, bridle, boots and spurs, was a biack one belonging to Troop D, of the Seventh cavalry. All the flora! pieces were placed in an open barouche, to be taken to the cemetery. At 10:30, General Merritt, chief marshal, and stafl" arrived. The carket then was received from the car, anrt as It was placed on the cnis son the Twelfth infantry presented arms and the band played a dirjr. Many of those assem bled were touched by the si«nt, and veterans and comrades of the dead general could have been seen weeping on all sides. General How ard and General Slocum were so overcome they could not speak for nereral minutes. The order to march was then given, and in fantry companies wheeled iutoline and marched to Eleventh street, followed by the caisson, on either side of which 400 members of Hansom had arranged themselves. Next came members of the Pherman family and people wiio had come with them from New York, in carriages. The procession divided into six divisions. It was composed of the regular military as escort, provided by the regular army regulations, Craua Army posts, the Loyal Legion, Sons of Veterans, civic societies, state militia of Missouri and Ohio, members of the legislature from Missouri. Illinois aud Kansas, governors of states and tbeir staffs, and unorganized bodies of citizens in carriages and on foot. The route of the procession from the depot to Calvarv, a distance of nearly eight miies, was through some of the principal streets and ave nues of St. LouK The windows of nearly, all building!* were tilled with spectators, aud 'the sidewalks were crowded with a struggling mass of humanity. The entrance to the cemetery was by the rear. Most of the troops remained outside the ceme tery. It wss S.;W when all who had been as signed to places took their positions about the open grave, which was lined inside with line*. A short distance to the south was the Thir teenth infantry, to the cast members of the «*. A. K. and directly around it, to the uorth, were frouped Senator Sherman, thf Misses Sherman, T. r-herman, Colonel Hovt Sherman, Lieuten ants Thackeray and Fit/h and their wives, Judge and Mrs. P. W.

General M. schofieid, General How ard, General t-locuni and others. After all had taken positions the eight ser geants acting as bod* guards lifted the casket from the caisson and bore it reverently to the jtrave. when all that was mortal of General Sherman was lowered to it* Inst resting place. The casket was draped with flsgs and was bare of anv floral t.lbute. Ihe services were of the simplest character and conducted by Rev. Thomas Ewing Sher man. Assembled at the grave, standing with un covered heads as the casket was being lowered, the regimental band rendered Pity el's hymn, and Father Sherman read the Catholic service for the repose of the soul of the dead.

Ssa FnuielMo Mcrchanti HcgaM th» Enterprise with Favor. BAH FRANCISCO, Feb. 21.— Merchants and MEA of influence are greatly interested la the Hawaiian cable proceedings: Captain William Merry said: "A Hawaiian and Australian cable would be of great benefit to the C nited states, and especia'ly to Ran Fran cisco. The projected connection with the Farallon islands is of minor advantage in in creasing its usefulness. Honolulu will beooma a port of call and a coaling station when the Central American canal is completed, and «*»<§ will make the cable still more valuable." Adolph Sprockets said: "The United Statee should control any cable that may ba laid to the Hawaiian islands/ Our commercial Interest in the islands alone warrants this. If any foreign power should lay a cable to the Islands they would simply derive their revenue from levying a toll upon American commeroe." D. A. McKinley, the Hawaiian consul, ts deeply interested and watches carefully all develop ments in legislation on the subject "The islands want a cable, and we think yon ought to want it still more," be said. "We are willing to give a liberal srabsidv, and the American govern ment should, not be beck ward in aiding In every way an enterprise that affects her in so many ways." Frank James, superintendent of the Western Union Telegraph Company, said: "I consider the plan entirely feasible, out I don't think it well to pay the projectors. As to the benefits we will derive throughout the country, there is no question. The advantage)! seem only too appa rent. Its Importance from a political is even greater than from a commercial view. Hn oubtedly the government should see to it that the cable is laid under American control." SIR JOHN MACDONALD'A PLAN. Mutual Tariff for England, Canada and as Against Americans.
