PARTY LINES IGNORED Itoiids or the (jlilted States Payable at the Opt;.,11 or the U.'.v?ruiiK-nl in silver Dollars. Proceeding or I tic House. (By Telegraph.) WASHII-NIGTOX. Jon. 2S.?After a de. bate, animated at all 'times, .and occas? ionally acrimonious, which occupied the greater part of this week, the Senate this evening by the decisive vote of 47 to 22 passed the Teller concurrent res ilulion. The resolution is a practical reallirma'ti-Mi of that of Stanley' Mat? thews in 1S7S, and Is ias follows: _ "That all the Ponds of the United States,issued or authorized to be issued, tinder the .-aid acts of Congress here? inbefore recited, are payable, principal and interest, at the option of the gov? ernment of the United States in silver dollars of-the coinage of- the United .States, containing four hundred and twelve and one-half grains each of -.an,turd silver: and that to restore to its coinage such silver coins as a legal lender in payment-of said bonds, prin? cipal and interest, is not in violation of the public faith, nor in derogation of the rights of the public creditor." All efforts to amend tlie resolution were voted down by majorities rang? ing from five to twct.it v-nine, Mr. Dodge's gold standard substitute being defeated by the latter majority. The v.fte on the Dodge amendment was, y< as, 24: nays, 53. The events of the day leading up !?'? the final vote were full of interest and importance. It was a field day for the :r..t- rs ? if the .Senate, no less than twen? ty-five Senators embracing the oppor? tunity'to speak on the subject under discussion. That the debate was Inter? esting was attested by tl- attendance in tile galleries, which were crowded, ind that it was import-Hint was. evi di need by the statement of several of the speakers 't.hat the discussion was but the preliminary alignment of the sreat political parlies for the contest of 1'jOO. (Prom 10 o'clock this morning until 7 this evening the contest was continued. W-hen the voting .began it was evident that party lines were being broken on both sides of the chamber, but it was on the substitute offered by Mr. Bodge, of Massachusetts, that the most decided break occurred. Cm the Republican side Mr. Allison, of Iowa, and Mr. Bur? rows, of Michigan, did 'not answer to their names ein chat roll call, and many jf ,rhe Reublieans voted directly against it. Upon the final passage of the; res? olution, some -Republicans who sup? ported iMcddnley and the St. Louis piatform in 1896, like Carter, of MOn tant; Chandler, of New Hampshire; -*=-.'?"".^a??- PHteKnid.of North Wyoming; and Wolcott,' of Colorado-, voted ifor the resolution, because, as Mr. Wolcott announced, they did not believe the resolution committed those who supported it to the free and unlim? ited coinage of silver. When the Senate met at "10 o'clock.the chaplain being absent, the Vice-Presl detu opened the session without the us? ual invocation. ?By unanimous consent the routine business was waived, and Mr. Stewart, of Nevada, opened the last day's 'dis? cus-ion of the resolution. In support? ing it, Mr. Stewart maintained that motley, whether it be silver or gold or paper, was a creature of law, the erea. tioti mon'ey being inherent in all in? dependent nations. He said that this statement had been upheld by the highest tribunals and cited historical instances of such creation of money. After a legal discussion of the money ouestion, Mr. Stewart said, referring to the speech of President McKinley in New York Ia.-t night, that lie regret? ted to see that the President had not studied this question more deeply, and that he was utterly misguided. Mr. Cannon, of Utah, followed in sup? port of the resolution, die believed that the only way in which the parity of silver and gold money could be main? tained was to accord equal privileges to both metals at the minis. He firmly denied that the advocates of free coin? age were in favor of anything but a 100 cent dollar. "We do not .believe, however," said Mr. -Cannon, "in the deified dollar of Grover Cleveland, which is worshipped by the present administration." He criticized the President for attending banquets of millionaires -in New York, there perusing his menu bound in goid und then declaring in favor of paying government obligations in gold in vio? lation of the nation's rights to dictate what money they should lie paid in. Mr. Jon'.-s (Arkansas), said the ad? vocates of the resolution proposed to pay the full pound of flesh due,but ab sulutely not a bit more. In the course of his remarks Mr. Jones said, in dis? cussing the Work of the monetary com? mission, with special reference to its recommendations concerning hanking, that it was the evident purpose of those behind the proposed bank legislation, to fasten the gold standard on the coun? try. Mr. Jones said he maele the ibroatl statement thai no Democrat,silver Re? publican or Populist had ever declared in favor of paying government obliga? tions in a depreciated currency. Mr, Jones said the newspapers unfriendly to the cause were saying that bimetallism was dead. "I believe," .-?aid the Arkansas Senator, "that the peciple's convictions upon this question are more firmly fixed than ever before. They are determined to restore silver to its status' before 1S73 and we shall do all we can to accomplish the result." T.h'e first speech of the day in opposi? tion to the Teller resolution was de? livered by Mr. Burrows, of Michigan. He said the Republican party was pledged to secure if possible interna? tional bimetallism and" the President would clo everything in his power to carry out that pledge. Meantime the existing gold standard would be main? tained.' ?Mr. -White, of California, supported the resolution. He spoke of the lack of definiteness of the President's mes? sage on the larger questions of finance. The Senator then referred ironically to t.he New York banquet Hast night, at which the President spoke. He spoke of the men who had gathered at the feast to consider means of improving the condition of the poor workingma-n and the farmer. It had been referred to as " Belshazzar's feast." ?Mr. Fairbanks, of Indiana, followed ?agains* the resolution. He said the pur? pose of the resolution was not frankly expressed on its face, and it was only in the course of the debate that it de? veloped that the essential purpose was ?to give an expression of the United States Senate favorable to the free and unlimited coinage of silver iat the ratio Of 16 to 1. Mr. Woleott, .>f Colorado, was the first speaker under the fifteen minute rule which went into effect at 2 o'clock. He thought that any Senator, whatever his financial views, could vote for the Teller esolution, as it involved noth? ing except the carrying into effect of th'e government's plain obligations. He referred with scathing sarcasm to the scale of bondis by the Cleveland admin-, ista'ation in 1SSM. denouncing it as one of the darkest Ivages in American fi? nancial history. .Mr. Morgan, of Alabama, supported the resolution in a carefully prepared speech, basing his support upon sta? tistics .and deductions indicating "the Impossibility of striking silver from among the money metal.-." Mr. IForaker, of Ohio, thought the statement in the resolution that such coinage as eoirtemplted by it was not in derogation of tin- rights of creditors could only mean the free and unlimited coinage of silver. He was therefore opposed to the resolution. Mr. Chi'iton, of Texafc, in .a legal ar? gument advocated the restoration of the standard silver dollars to coinage and their use in the payment of the govern? ment's obligations. Mr. iNeham. of 'Minnesota, stated his objection to the resolution was that it ignored the duty of the government to maintain the parity between the metals, as imposed upon it by law. 'Mr. Allison spoke of the circumstan? ces attending the passage of the Stan? ley Matthews resolution in 1STS. To him. it had 'not meant tit that time a declaration in favor of the free ami un? limited coinage of silver. The clear pur? pose of the pending resolution was to commit the country to the free and un? limited coinage or silver of l? to 1. when it wu.= almost axiomatic, the Senator declared, thit such a course without oncurrence of other nations will lead ns inevitably to the silver standard alone ami to silver monometallism. Mr. 'Cray, of ?Delaware, urged that the resolution could accomplish nothing ? ml was a hollow expression so far as affecting the character of money in which our bonds were to be met. He regarded the resolution itself as expres? sive of truism and while superfluous, he would not vote for it. Mr. Allen, of .Nebraska, insisted that . he free coinage of silver would restore the parity between gold and silver. [ Mr. It.icon, of Georgia, held that the ] resolution applies distinctively to the silver?five hundred millions?already coined, and that which shall be coined ti tlie future. He maintained that the pending resolution was most important as a declaration of the legislative branch ?? the other duty of the execu? tive bran h .if the government. Mr. Thurston, of Nebraska, said that the legal obligation of the government was set forth in its contracts and that there, is no need now to re-state the terms of those contracts. He denied -the right of any government to pass upon its creditors any but the best dol? lars of the world. Mr. T ill-man. of .South Carolina, thought the discussion was simply the rnanoeuvreing -of the groat political parties for position in the great contest that -was to be fought in 1'JOO. The people, he said, would win in that on test as they had won in every fight they l.Ud ever made for freedom. He Jtnouuced as hypocrisy the financial plank of the Republican platform, and insisted that it was an effort to fasten -ur. auiyio: - j,' /.n the country, .?.ending resolutemS;,"?hecttciu, .said the payment of the national debt in 48-cent' dollars. Mr. Galllnjjer, of New Hampshire, be? lieved the payment of national debts in the best money of fixed national as weil as international value. 'Any other ac? tion upon the part of the government would be a national disgrace. Mr. K'lkins. of West Virginia, thought that as a legal proposition the resolu? tion could not be .successfully assailed, but he could see no reason for its pass? ige n,,w. He said there were times when the bondholders could be treated with indifference, but he ask.-d Mr. Teller whether if war were declared tomorrow he would Intro? duce such a resolution as this. It would be perfectly evident that we could raise no money on bonds in the markets of th.- world if the declarations of the res? olution w.-re enforced,because their en foreeuH a; would mean the free coinage .f silver. Mr. Warr.-n. of Wyoming, announced his purpose to Vote for the resolution. Tin- resolution m.aiit no surrender of the honor, credit and dignity of the n.i t ion. 'Mr. Cullom, of Illinois, .announced brielly that he would vote against the resolution because it was a step toward ;'r.-e silver. ?Mr. Uut'.'er, of North Carolina, 'advo? cated the resolution, saying that instead t' destroying the parity of the metals, ? s had been tie's.?rted. it would tend to sustain parity by keeping both metals, like both arms, in equal use. It was ill.-ged, be said, that the national honor was at stake, but was'not honor due to the tax-payer as well as the bondhold Mr. Ra'wlins, of Utah, said the ques? tion was simply one of paying bonds in tc. ord.ince with the legal obligation, or n the so-called "best money" of far greater value than the money with which the bonds were bought. Mr. Aldrich said it had not needed the leclar.i tion of 'Mr. -Vest to disclose that this issue was the opening of the cam? paign of 1900. It was the opening of the contest between those who favored a cheaper money and those who be? lieved [he United States was bound at *yery hazard to -maintain the parity of every dollar ever issued by the gov? ernment. At a tiime when the Republi? can party w.is seeking to strengthen the currency of the country, this meas? ure was brought forward. "We intend to meet this issue square? ly." declared Mr. Aid-rich. Mr. Aldrich declared that the resolu? tion was an absurdity in that It was a "concurrent resolution," in which the House would not "concur," hence it would not be inoperative, even as an expression .if sentiment by the iSenate. Mr. Aldrich closed just as the clock marked 6, the hour set for voting, and the Vice-President promptly announced that the voting would proceed. A number of amendments that had been offered during the debate were 'aid on the table. The vote on the bodge amendment to pay for bonds in gold, was as follows: Y- as?Aldrich, Baker, Caffery,Cullom, Davis, Fairbanks. Foraker, Galilnger, Gear, Hale. Hanna. Ha-wley, Hoar, Lodge.
