Hanking and currency committee was

Mr. Culbertson. or Texas favored the
mot on. With this through the bankruptcy
bill should not be present until the presi
dential election is over. A bankrupt law is
demoralizingand promotive ordesponendcy.
At this very time Wall street was in a mael
storm or speculation and great names
were resting under a shadow of disgrace
on account of that speculation. Congress
should not encourage this by the passage of
a bankrupt law, which would operate as
an injustice to public morals, and would
work ruin to thousands of widows and or
phans. SENATE.
Washington, May 19. Morrill modified
his motion by mowug reference of the reso
lution to the Finance Committee. Bayard
supported the motion. Sherman supported
reference. Tho senate ougbt, be said, be
very carelul in questions of this kind. He
had been in N'ew York the day when
the trouble referred to occurred,
and be could assure the senate that al
though there might be trouble here and
there over tbc certification checks, yet
there had not been trouble at all. Iu the
present -case the trouble was caused by
spcculativ u operation of officers orthc banks
affected, and In some cases not by certify
ing the checks but rather by non-certltiea-tion.
The proper remedy would be to
prescribe severe penalties against any
dealings in speculative transactions by
officers of the bank, or using mon
ey of the bauk in transactions that
such officers might engage iu.
Sherman saw no special uc in committee
investigation in .New York. We had gov
ernment officers there who could give u
all ueeded information. If a committee
were to go there to make a commotion and
keep up an agitation regardingthe failures,
it might embarrasj us in this call. There
had been no panic. If the people of New
York had not been alarmed the securities
specially effected would havo been those
involved in the transactions exposed by the
failure, but confidence in the standard se
curities of tbc country had not suffered. It
was like cases in New York City not ex
tending over any other part of the country.
It had resujtcd in clearing tho atmosphere,
and he believed the present commercial po
sition was iietter than it had been before
the recent trouble.
