NO MIDDLE GROUND.
Silver Must Be Put on a Parity With Gold. Senator Vest Defines the Dem- ocratic Position. He Says Free Coinage Has Always Been Democratic Doctrine. Senator Allison's Conservative Views on the Coinage Question—The Silver De bate Not Yet Ended. Associated Press Dispatcher. I Washington, June 16. —In the senate today the house amendments to the bill to establish the customs collection dis trict of Puget Sound, was non-concurred in, and a conference was asked. A message from the house asking fur ther conference on the anti-trust bill was presented and the request assented to after remarks by Edmonds and Vest. The deficiency appropriation bill for pensions, District of Columbia, and the census, was reported and passed. Dawes introduced a bill to retire Gen eral Banks as a Major-General of the United States army. Referred to the committee on military affairs. The house silver bill was taken up and Daniel resumed his speech which he be gan last Friday. In concluding his speech, Daniel said that the world moved, and that thiswas a land of progress had never been better demonstrated than by this fact, that the leader of the Republican financial policy of the United States (alluding to Sena tor Sherman), who carried the single gold standard over two continents, had come forward in his speech and lain down at the feet of the double standard, and proclaimed that he was at last an advocate of silver money. Allison next addressed the senate. He said he should vote for the house bill as amended by the senate finance committee, as he considered it the wisest and best solution of the question. The question to be considered was: What currency could be safely substituted for the national bank circulation? The judgment of the finance committee was (and he thought it would be the judg ment of the senate), that if the govern ment issued paper money, it should issue it on something that was of itself convertible to legal tender money; therefore the bill proceeded on the idea that whatever paper money should be issued should be issued on silver bullion purchased by the government at the market price. Why, he asked, had silver bullion been selected as the basis for that new paper money ? It was be cause the public mind rested in the belief that sooner or later silver bullion would be coined and become part of the metallic currency. It was on that basis that he would vote for the bill. It was on that basis he was willing that the coinage of silver dollars as now provided for should cease. There were people who believed that the coined dollars in the treasury were useless, and that it would be a wise public policy to cease that coinage. He for one did not share that belief. He believed that it was just as well to continue them to the utmost limit of $4,000,000 a month, but there was a large public opinion against that view, and therefore he consented that the bullion should be left in the treasury uncoined. He did that more readily for the reason that he believed that sooner or later the United States would have to change the number of grains of silver in the dollar, and there fore the dollars now coined would be re coined. He was therefore willing that the bullion should lie in the treasury until it was known whether there would be an international agreement as to the ratio. It was true that the pending bill provided that the bullion in the treas ury should be coined for the redemption of treasury notes. Whatever might be the opinion of other senators in that respect, he did not labor under the delusion that in the near future, undtr the provisions of the house bill or the senate bill, any additional silver dollars would be issued. There were now more than 300,000,000 coined dollars in the treasury against which silver cer tificates were issued; so, although those dollars belonged to the holders of the certificates, the certificates were paya ble for public dues, and when they were received into the treasury they belonged to the government of the United States; so the government would always have a working balance sufficient to redeem those treasury notes. He believed that the only safe way to rehabilitate silver was to secure a concurrent agreement among the nations whereby they would open their mints concurrently to the free coinage of silver at an agreed ratio. So believing he was willing to go on as they were going on now (tentatively, as it were, with provision for the use of sil ver) pending negotiations that ought to be had for the restoration of silver on some agreed ratio by the nations of the world. In supporting the bill, he sup ported it on the basis or idea that the government of the United States would use its power in endeavoring to secure an agreement whereby all the commer cial nations of the world would use silver as gold was now used, at a ratio to be agreed upon. He regarded the pending measure, and the unanimity with which it was supported, as a complete justification of the legis lation of 1878, which contemplated a minimum monthly coinage of two mil lion silver dollars, and a maximum of four million. He was for the full and complete restoration of silver as one of the coin metals of the world, and was willing to do whatever he could do to promote that most desirable object. He could not vote for the free coinage of silver at this time, or any time in the near future. He could not do so until every effort to secure the use of silver by the commercial nations of the world was exhausted. Vest commented upon a remark of Allison as to the new-born zeal of the Democratic senators in the cause of the free coinage of silver, and made a state ment to show that it had always been the Democratic policy. If the Demo cratic party said nothing on the silver question in the platform of 1888, it was not because it had receded from the po sition it always held. It was because President Cleveland was an eastern man, a New York man, who did not sympathize with the majority ol his party on that question. Cleve land had come to the presidency with the prejudices of the New York bankers, and was in one sense (as far as his opinion tin silver was concerned) a sectional man. He had reason to be lieve that Mr. Cleveland was now better informed on the subject. Vest declared that on the silver ques I THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 17, 1890. tion there was no middle ground; silver must be put on the same basis as gold. Senators Ingalls and Wolcott expressed a desire to address the senate tomorrow on the silver bill, hence no vote was taken on the bill today and the senate adjourned. HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. The Sundry Civil Appropriation Bill Under Consideration. Washington, June 16. —In the house today, Williams, of Ohio, presented a petition of ex-soldiers of Dayton, Ohio, for the enactment of a law prohibiting the sale, use, manufacture or importa tion of banners or flags representing the confederate flag or red flag of the anarch ists. Referred. The house then went into committee on the sundry civil appropriation bill. On motion of Williams, of Ohio, an amendment was agreed to, aopointing E. M. Morrill, of Kansas, and Alfred L. Pearson, of Pennsylvania, members of the board of manager soldiers' homes. Sayers, of Texas, offered an amend ment making a specific appropriation instead of an indefinite appropriation for the payment of back pay and bounty. The amendment, so far as it affected back pay, was agreed to, but on bounty it was lost. Pending action on the bill, the com mittee rose, and the house adjourned. FEDERAL ELECTIONS. Provisions of the Bill Framed by the House Ttopubllcnn Caucus. Washington, June 1(5. —The national election bill framed by the house Re publican caucus committee has been printed. The principal features are: The chief supervisors of elections in judicial districts are charged with the execution of the law, which is to apply to federal elections in cities of 20,000 in habitants or upwards, and in entire con gressional districts, exclusive of such cities, upon application to the super visor of 100 voters, or in counties or par ishes forming part of a congressional district, upon application of fifty, voters. The supervisors are required to make in towns of 20,000 people and upwards, a thorough house-to-house canvass before election to inform the voters, upon inquiry, where and in what box to deposit their ballots, and to scrutinize naturalizations. In canvas sing votes the state laws are to govern, except that all ballots are to be counted by tens, first by the inspector of elec tion, and second by the supervisor, the local election officers and supervisors keeping separate tally-sheets, which are to be counted. The returns are to be made by the supervisor, who is to tabu late and refer them to the United States board of canvassers of the con gressional vote, which is to be appointed by the United States court, and shall consist of three citizens of the state, and persons of good repute, | not more than two of whom are to be of | the same political party. The board is to convene on September 15th, each even I year, and declare and certify the result oi the election, and send one return to j the clerk of the house, one to the gov ; ernor of the state, and one to the proper , chief supervisor of elections. The clerk | of the house is to place upon the roll the names of the persons declared elected ' by the United States canvassers, in case 1 there is a difference in the result reached by them and by the state election offi cers.

The Nevada Senator Thinks the Senate Will Pass a Free Coinage Bill. Washington, June 16. —When ques tioned as to the character of the silver I bill the senate would pass, Senator I Jones, of Nevada, answered that it ! seemed quite probable that it now would Ibe a bill providing for free coinage.

The list of Republican senators j favorable to free coinage, as given by I one of them, includes Wolcott, Teller, Jones, Stewart,Plumb, Ingalls, Mitchell, Powers, Sanders and Cameron. BLAIR'S TAIL-ENDERS. Tho Long-Haired Senator Proposes to Amend tho Silver Bill. Washington, June 16. —Senator Blair proposed two amendments to the silver bill today.

THE "CHRONICLE" BUILDING. De Young's New Edifice Thrown Open to Public Inspection. San Francisco, June 16. —The new Chronicle building, located at the inter section of Market, Kearney and Geary streets, one of the largest and most com plete structures on the Pacific coast, was thrown open to public inspection tonight. It has been under construc tion for over a year past, and its builder, M. 11. De Young, proprietor of the Chronicle, has spent about one million dollars upon it. The edifice is ten stories in height, and has a frontage of ninety-three feet on Market and Geary streets. Generally speaking it is built in the Romanesque style, though no particular order of architecture has been followed throughout. The building is 135 feet high, and is surmounted by a tower sixty-seven feet in height, making a total of 202 feet from the sidewalk to the top of the edifice. It is one of the strongest structures on the coast, the interior frame-work being of heavy steel. The walls are of dark brown sandstone and red pressed brick, with terra cotta trimmings, which give the building a very handsome ap pearance. In the tower is a mammoth clock, having four dials, each sixteen feet in diameter. One of the features of the interior finish of the new structure is the marble work, which is of pure white Italian stone. Two foot-passenger elevators, and one freight lift, together with pneumatic tubes, mail chutes and other conveniences are provided. The new presses will turn out papers of from eight to twenty-four pages at the rate of forty thousand an hour. Brilliant fire works and the finest electrical illumina tions ever witnessed on this coast were displayed from the roof and sides of the building tonight. Great crowds of peo ple filled the street on all sides of the building, and gave repeated cheers. The proprietor had sent out several thousand invitations to friends and patrons of the paper, who inspected the new and com plete mechanical plant, business office and spacious editorial, composing, stereotyping and art rooms. The first paper will be printed in the new build ing next Saturday. FOUNDERS AND HOLDERS. The Former Claim to Have no Differ ences to Adjust.
