Washington, D. C., May 14.— I The Democratic
managers arc still couductlmramonglhcmßclvea
quiet consultations with a view of virtually de
ciding upon some general line of action before
risking n formal caucus discussion. It becomes
more noticeable each day that tbc men who have
hitherto expressed tho most extrema views arc’
restraining themselves, and seem to bo under
some general Influence, for tho purpose
of preventing bo far as possible wlmt has con
tributed so much toward tho difficulties of the
Democratic situation. One of the most promi
nent Democrats in Congress expressed tho opin
ion to-day that tbc drift of sentiment in the par
ty was toword an absolute refusal to pass the
Army bill under any circumstances. lie did net
think that the party could afford to yield a par
ticle Upon that bill.
In regard to
the legislative hill,
ho thought it would ho Impossible to bring the
majorltyl of the parly to modify its political
sections In any degree until the bill hod first
coho to the Executive In Us present shape, tho
desired object being to placo the President In'
tho position of vetoing this particular legisla
tion. After tho veto, this gentleman thought,
that tho political sections of tho bill would bo
modified, by providing that Deputy Marshals,
us well as Supervisors, nhould be taken equally
from each of tho political parlies. Hu also
thought It would be decided to Introduce finally
Into the Legislative Lilian Itemized statement
of purposes for which the appronrlutlou which
is now used to cover the expense of Supervisors
and Marshals should ho paid, and
In reference to tho length of tlic session, the
drift of opinion among thu managers appears to
be that It will lust until (heist of July at least.
The friends of the. President believe that If on
adlournment should take place without provid
ing for the army, ho would not wait until late
In tho season, as on tho occasion of tho first
failure of thu Army bill, but that he would im
mediately reassemble Congress, and continue
to hold It here until the uucossitlcs of tho army
aro provided for.
Tho Democrats are still considering the pro
priety of preparing a formal reply to tho Presi
dent's vetoes, and
arq under advisement. The first Is to havo it
emanate from tho Judiciary Committees of tho
two bodies, umisond It to thu country; ami,tho
second Is to havo a joint address prepared un
der thu rule which provides that when tho Sen
ate uml House of Representatives shall judge it
proper to make a joint address to tho President
It shall be presented to him in his audfcnco
chamber by tbo President of thu Senate In thu
presence of the Speaker and both Houses. As
yet no formal steps have been taken lu this
Id Uio IToaso Appropriatluns Committee which
are not without signilicaiu.'u as bearing upon thu
question of pure nnd sltnplo appropriation bills
being passed before adjournment. Mr. Felton,
In a meeting of that Committee, stated today
that,so far os ho was concerned, ho thought Unit
this contest had proceeded far enough, and that
tho attempted political legislation should not
fur tiio rest ot thu session complicate thu Ap
propriation bills. U(s believed tlwt .Mr. Wells,
of this Committee, will act with Mr. Felton.
Mr. Felton announced that Alexander 11.
Stephens and Mr. Bpccr, of ills own State, held
this view with him. It has also been announced
that Mr. Tollman, of South Carolina, occupied
tho samo position, and, In fact, so numerous uru
tno Indications of yielding In this direction that
the metremo men Id thu House aro beginning to
admit that If tho Appropriation bills can bo
regularly reported free from political legislation
they will certainly pass.

Washington! D. 0., May 14.—The Senate fln
lulled It* formal consideration of Urn Legislative
Appropriation bill to-day, with tlio exception of
(lie political.sections, which were Informally
passed over to permit dUcusstou on that por
tion of the measure. Senator Kcroau spoke for
two hours In reply 10 Cookllotc’s great speech.
The present prospect Is that this aobato will bo
a prolonged one, os thirteen tienotors have al
ready given notice of their Intention to speak.
It is expected that Thurman and Hock will oc
cupy the entire session to-morrow.
Senator Morrill to-day tried to amend the
tlauuo wltlcp provides for the application of the
$1,000,000 reserve heretofore held for the re
demption of fractional currency to the payment
of arrears of pension claims, by moving to in
sert the words, “if necessary,“ after the direc
tion to the Secretary of the Treasury, so that
the latter wight apply this fund or not,
This proportion cavo rise lu considerable de
bate, tu wblclt Mr. Heck and others of tbu Dem
ocrats took occasion to belabor Secretary SUer
tnau tu their hearts’ content. Mr. i’addoek
stated that Mr. Sherman had to-day Informed
him that the present measure would not hasten
the payment of those pensions by a
single day. Mr. Pendleton asked rather ex*
L-itcdly where the conversation had occurred.
Mr. Paddock replied that it had Ukeo place in
the cloak room. Mr. Pendleton Ada this Illus
trated what ho had charged a few weeks ago,
when ho Introduced the hill to authorise mem
hern of the Cabinet to luve season the floor of
the Senate to the end tlmt they ftileht answer
Here, then, the Secretary of the Treasury had
come Into the Senate to-day and unofllcially
Riven Information to a member which was con
tradictory to bla last official communication on
said subject. Ho was very much opposed to
this hack-dour business, and should take the
Urat opportunity to press hls bill to Its passage.
Mr. Edmunds gravely suggested that this
might have been done by attaching It os a rider
to the Legislative Appropriation bill. Then, If
the House disagreed to It, the. Senate could re
fuse to pass any appropriation until It tmd come
to terms, or, In case the two Houses agreed,
they could easily coerce Die President.
Mr. Voorhccs took this sally la high dudgeon,
and not only scolded Mr. Edmunds severely for
a gratuitous insult to the Democrats, hut made
n vigorous onslaught ao the common enemy,
John Sherman. The latter, ho'said, had come
into the Senate to-day to electioneer in his own
Interest, ills visit was a surreptitious one, to
which ho wanted to enter his solemn protest.

Unit no juror can bo required to criminate him

most unlimited In excluding those connected

Important part of the admluislraUon of justice

It was a farce to appropriate .'money to admin
ister justice hi such a one-sided manner.
Passing to the clauses In regard to Marshals
and Supervisors, Mr. Kernuu spoke of increas
ing the power thrown Idto the hands of the
Federal Government by Its Immense patronage,
.mid bv Us authority to use the army to suppotl
United States officers at Congressional elec
tions, and the dangers to bo apprehended lucre
Alluding to Senator Wlndoro’s remark that
free fraud mid free mobs arc dear to the Demo
crats, Mr. Kcrnau deplored the spirit In which
the assertions were made, and repelled them as
baseless. The Democrats held dear the old
Ideas of faithfulness to constitutional princi
Ho then proceeded to
from the attacks of his colleague,' and pained'
Democrats who were elated Governors, but
not by thugs and 1 thieves. First, William L.
Mr. Morrill inquired ’ whether this was the
Murcy woo declared that to the victors belong
the spoils!
Mr. Kenton replied It was doubtless a joke,
but no mun In New York, Kepuldlcan or Demo*
oral, but would any Unit Morey woo a patriotic
uml honest man.
Mr. Kernnn next named Silas Wright and Ho
rnllo|3oymour, wtio could not go into any assent*
blugo without being greeted vylth applause; also
Hodman. Tililun, and Uoblnson. For forty years
New Yurie has had honest, zealous men and
Democrats Tor Governors, and yet the people
were asked to believe that the Democratic purtv
want fraud,violence, ami rutllanlsm ut the pulls.
Mr. Morrill asked whether this was
who bad not oaid Ida Income taxi
Air. Kcrnan replied in the aillrmattvc, hut
that ho had heard that tho Government had
failed to make a ease.
Mr. Eaton Inquired whether this was not the
sumo Tllden who was elected President, but was
cheated out of iheolllce?
Mr. Kernau replied that ho was tho same man
whom the majority of the people believed was
elected, and who would clean out the Augean
stables in the Union ns ho had the peculations
in New York. Thu Democrats thought thev
were beaten by a dishonest count. It was not
true, ns had been said by bis colleague, Unit
the Democrats want certain laws ruoealcd be
cause with the retention of these laws they
could not hope fur success. As for himself
(ICernan), he wauic*! nothing but honest nnd
peaceful elections, and so It was with his parly.
Hut the Democrats could cam* the State of
New York. They carried it In *71,’715,” *7O, nnd
’77, and carried It by fair elections, Tho Demo
crats carried the Slate, too, In 1870, when Hall
man was elected a second time. They could
carry the State again by fair means.
Mr. Kcrnun, In conclusion, reviewed tho con
duct of the Supervisors of election, Including
that of Davenport, arguing that
whatever party might be in power, and contend
ing it would be u great wrong to subject Ameri
can citizens to the arbitrary oppressions to which
it subjected them
Mr. Thurman obtained the door, and will ad
dress tho Senate to-morrow.
On muliou of Mr. (Jordon, it was resolved that
the Secretary of the Treasury bo directed to in
form the Semite us to the liability of the States
for direct taxes under the law of August, 18(51,
and tho net amendatory thereof.
Mr. Seek moved aa amendment to the legis
lative, Executive, and Judicial appropriation
bill, namclv: In order to provide fot dm speedy
payment of arrearages of pensions, Uie Secre
tary of the Treasury is authorized and directed
to issue immediately In parment thereof that
portion of tho 910,000,000 hi legal-tender cur
rency now In the Treasury kept as a special fund
for the redemption of fractional currency, etc.
There Is now over $8,000,000 remaining of the
Mr. Heck, during bis remarks in favor of the
amendment, sold thn Beeretary of llio Treasury
hud increased the public debt, aud had by the
payment of double interest
Mr. Paddock said that ha bod a conversation
this morning with Uic Secretory, who expressed
the opinion that a diversion of Uiu money re
served for thu redemption of fractional cur
rency would not hasten the payment of thu
arrears of pensions a single dav, as ho was pre
pared to pav them from tlmu to time os thu
necessary papers were prepared. If it was pro
posed to usu Urn money In OuhaU of soldiers'
arrears of pensions, Uiu plea was forced, so far
us thu Beeretary was concerned, ami thu rcliuo
tlons upon him were, therefore, not warranted
by his conduct.
Mr. Heck said he was not making any particular
charge against thu Secretary.
Mr. Paddock replied that thu Senator had
ma«*u charges in every breath against llio Secre
tary, who had carried out tils policy with won
derful BUCCCIS.
Air. Heck said no doubt the Secretary was a
great man, and might tu a greater one.
Mr. Paddock remarked that the Secretary had
done his duty, and was entitled to fair treat
ment und a meed of praise.
Mr. Heck said thu Secretary of the Treasury
had somo time ago stated that (hero would bu a
deficit of 9-11,000,(XX), und therefore li was neces
sary to limit Urn arrears of pensions to 125,000,-
000, is in the net of March B,IbTO. - It appeared
(hat, in view of this statement, and to provide
for tim emergency, lie asked for authority to Is
sue 918.000,000 of 4 per cent bonds’, ’rite amend
ment which ho (Heck) bad tillered was designed
to use the money belonging to Uie people In
stead of issuing bonds, thus diminishing Uiu de
flclt to Umt extent. If 910,000.000 were owing,
the 925,000,000 heretofore appropriated
and some must bu'favored; therefore, means
should bu provided U> pay them all. The hccre
tnry was doing a great many things wrong, and
he ought to understand that bo roust obey the
Mr. Morrill moved an amendment to the pend
ing amendment, ao licit the Secretary might
use the money, u lf necessary,” In lieu of posi
tive direction to do so. He said the Funding
act was executed according to law, and that the
Secretary had oild no more Interest than he
was warranted in doing.
Mr. Ingalls said the Secretary hold4o per cent
of the legal-tender notes for the purpose of
maintaining resumption, which, with the amount
reserved for the redemption of fractional cur
rency, mode $145,000,000, which waa In excess
of what was shown to bo
Tlie retention of tills *lO per cent was arbitrary
and without warrantor law'. Ho would put In
circulation the money now lying idle.
Mr. Teller said the Secretary of the Treasury
on the 12th of February merely declared that
there would be a deficiency, and suggested
whether It would not he bettor to Issue bonds
than to lake money from the Treasury.
Mr. Paddock understood the Secretory to toy
that he could pay 52.000,000 a month to meet
tlie demands of the reunion Ilurcau.
Mr. Pendleton did not design to ask a ques
tlon not entirely proper, but If the Senator had
no objection ho should like to know when and
where the Senator had the conversation with tlie
Mr. Paddock had no objection to state that ho
met the Secretary In the cloak-room 10-day and
asked him questions about the payment of ar
rearages of pensions. The reply rtf the Secreta
ry confirmed his Impressions, aua saved him
from the necessity of going to tlie oflleo of the
Scciclary to acquire (he Information.
Mr. Pendleton replica that the lost communi
cation lie knew of from the Secretary was on
the 12th of February, In which tin made the
statement that In order to pav tlie arrears of
pensions there must be either additional taxes
or sale of bunds.
Mr. Paddock—ls IhcScnalorprcpored to state
that the condition of the Treasury is now exact
ly as Si was then I
Mr. Pendleton replied that If there was any
change In the condition of the Treasury it ought
to have been made ollldallv by the Secretary,
and not to a .Senator in tin; cloak-room. It only
shows that olllelat communications are nut so
clear and authoritative to u Senator os they

Peuelit that would be derived from personal ex
planations to this body as proposed In the bill
recently Introduced by him. He wasin lavor of
appropriatin'' the fund reserved for the redemp
tion of fractional currency for Uie payment of
the arrears of pensions.
Mr. Paddock remarked that the Senator had
Intimated that the Secretary had come upon
this floor for the purpose of Influencing legisla
tion. It was right In him to ask questions of
tlie Secretary, and it was right for him to
answer them, os It was right that he (Paddock)
should communicate the answer to the Senate.
Mr. Pendleton fluid he did not question the
right of the Secretary to come here and coo
verso with the Senator from Nebraska.
Mr, Edmunds suggested that the Senator
from Ohio move his bill (requiring the Secre
tary to appear hero and answer questions), os
an amendment to the pending appropriation
bill, uml toll the President that the operations
of the Govuromeut shall not go on until he ap
proved It.
Mr. Pendleton said If the Senator from Ver
mont would vote for his bill ho would offer it
Mr. Edmunds replied that his suggestion was
In the direction of reform as inaugurated on the
other side.
Mr. Pendleton said he could not consider sug
gestions from Uie Senator ou matters of such
public Importance.
Mr. Edmunds remarked that be had made his
suggestion fur the bencllt of his friends on the
other side.

Mr. Voorheea said that Hits morning he saw
the Secretary of the Treasury circulating lu this
chamber. If this cloak-room mid back-door In
fluence was to prevail the sooner the bill of the
Senator from Ohio was passed the belter. This
surreptitious way of coming In was beneath con
tempt. If a member of the Cabinet was not
willing to take the full measure of responsibil
ity, let him keep away. They did not want him
to in me and go in thU manner. When he
(Voorheea) was a member of the House ho saw
the Secretary of the Treasury (Fessenden) con
versing with members ou uulille business, but
who left the hail when It was proposed that he
give to the House what he was peddling over
the floor, and now the Senate should resent the
offense of the Secretary of the Treasury who
sought to
Yosterduv the Senate hod voted to apply the
idle money to the ooyment of pensions, and to
day the soft, velvety step ol the Secretary of
the Treasury was heard white he passed, drum
ming up recruits. Let not the Senator from
Vermont jeer ut the bill of the Senator from
Mr. Edmunds anld the Senator from Indiana
misunderstood him, lie dm not jeer ut the
Senator’s hill. He hud culled attention to it as
a measure of reform, and suggested that if it
was us great us (lie Senator thought it to be, it
should be put upon this hill in order to secure its
passage, ami then I In* House should he told that
If they did not think that way, no appropria
tions to cum- on (he Government Simula he
made until ft was passed. Thu wheel would
revolve faster on the outside H you attach fur
ther reforms to it, so the President and others
could nut fad to be swept into the current.
Mr. Vooriiees replied that there was not a
single rider to tho bill but what called for an
appropriation of money to carry it out. The
Democrats said to the Itepublicans, •* If you
want to use the army to interlore with elec
tions, wc do not want (o appropriate money for
Its support, if yon say you want the army to
swarm at Urn polls, we don’t want to tax the
people for that purpose, nor do we waul to tax
the people for supporting Supervisors to act o&
spies mid detectives on honest voters.”
Mr. Vooriiees repeated that the suggestion
that tliu Pendleton bill should be attached to
appropriation.bill was a Jeer.
Mr. Edmunds said he agreed with the {senator
in not wanting the army employed to prevent
honest men from voting, but ho
mu not no with the sbnatoii
In not using tho army when other means bad
failed to protect the honest man and election
oMlcers against thugs, assassins, and red-shirted

Mr. Vooriiees—Who Is to ho judge?

Wasiiinoton, 1). C., May IE— I The House
discussed the Silver tdll another day. The lead*
Ini’ speech in opposition to It was made by Col.
Fort, of-Illinois. Ills views are entitled to
special consideration from the fact that he, as a
strom: supjwjrter of Uic .Standard Bllvcr Dollar
bill, secs In tills measure, aiaonit other things,
mi attempt to repeal Uiu Standard Silver Dollar
Jaw. Thu following are Uiu points of obJccUou
to the bill from his standpoint: First, there Is
no necessity of changing Uic denominations of
Uiu gold pieces. There is no dissatisfaction with
thu existing lorms of these nieces. Second, thu
bill In Its present shape oilers inducements to
the influx of bullion from all parts of Uiu world,
and would
to tbo advantage of Uiu bullion-holder and the
' Mr. Fort Held that no more ingenious plan
could bo devised In the Interest of the Hank
of England, or of August Heimont, or of
any large bullion-speculators, and if It was
known'that the law was to pass thu bullion-deal
ers throughout Uiu world could make millions
pf money by means of It. The Iren coinage
proposcu by this bill was dangerous. There are
many of the features of tha bill to which he
made objection, especially for the reason that
they propose merely cumulative IcglslaUon,
■s laws covering the came points are now on Uiu
raised tu the bill was Unit It repeals the tiilver
act of 1878, because It provides that hereafter
there shall he no coins fabricated on Govern
ment account of a smaller denomination
than sl.
Col. Fort propoted two Important amend
ments, which, If adopted, will constitute prac
trlcally a new bill. The first provide* Hint the
owners of silver bullion may deposit it In quan
tities of twenty ounces and over at any mint at
its market value,not exceeding par, and receive
in exchange standard silver dollars,—the silver
bullion to be coined into standard silver dollars.
The second and most Important amendment
relates to the silver certificates. It provided
that the owners of bullion might deposit
and receive certificates tu the extent of that
value In United States legal-tender notes, the
certificates not to be Issued lu excess of the
amount of coin and bullion In the Treasury, and
to be redeemable on demand or on call In stand
ard silver dollars, mid to be receivable fur cus
toms dues, and to bo computable as part of the
lawful-mopoy reserve of the National banks.
One curious circumstance connected with
Fort’s speech was tlmt Warner, of Ohio, who
Ims charge of the bill, and who is, to say the
least, on Intense enthusiast upon the subject,
Interrupted Fort tweuty-two times, and Injected
as many little speeches Into his argument.
Warner, as the manager of the bill, has proved
himself to bo
Gen. Ewing followed In a harangue in favor of
the bill, scarcely less enthusiastic than that of
Warner himself. There was In Ewing’s speech
tho usual clap-trap about tho money-holder, the
bondholder, and all the {verbal paraphernalia
usual In an Ohio Greenback-Democratic stunip
Tlso House adjourned pending a motion to lay
the bill and the amendments on the table. It is
not probable that thitt motion will carry, and
the indications now tiro that this very crude
measure will pass the House.
To the ITVslmi Amclattd Prts:
-V fdE nwLMify
Washington, D. C., Slay ll.—The House re
sumed consideration of the bill to amend the
laws relating to coinage and to coin and bullion
Mr. .tort made a speech avowing himself in
favor of a double standard of gold and silver.
He thought that from the beginning the stand
ard silver dollar had been coined too light, and
sooner or later this Government would have to
come to other Governments of the earth and re
adjust its gold and sliver. He defended as a
wise measure the coinage of the trade
dollar, and denied Hint It was a •* trick ” dollar.
The day had gone bv when the crowds could bo
controlled by shouting "bondholder” and
"trick.” The third section of the bill invited
the whole world to come to the United States
with ships laden down with silver bullion and
unload It into the Treasury at par. If
the gentleman from Ohio (Warner) hua called
upon the Bank of JSngland, the Rothschilds, or
August Helmut to draw un the third section
they could not have pleased themselves hotter.
It was virtually compelling the United States
to pay a premium of 15 per ceut ou every ounce
of silver. Hu was in favor of
but notof freecoinagotoall tho world. And See.
Bof the bill provided that if August Belmont
did not want to wait for coinage, ho should de
posit his bullion and obtain certificates foe, it at
pur. If tills bill were passed August Belmont
could make $10,000,000 In tea days. Sec. U re
pealed the lan* remonetizing silver, which hu
had hoped would stand to the end df the Gov
ernment os a notice to all comers that they hod
belter leave the tinkering of the currency alone,
Mr. Kwing sold the first and most serious ob
jection to tbu bill was that the Government
would lose the difference between tbu present
bullion value ami cola value of silver. He un
derstood that an amendment was being consid
ered by the friends of the bill which would incut
this objection. That amendment provided ihat
lu,U|c Issue of certificates for bullion thcyshonld
be issued only for the market price of the
bullion, leaving coinage free and unlimited.
He should be quite satisfied to have that amend
ment adopted, provided it left ttrsllver Its full
character of money metal. He opposed the
amendment offered by Mr. Klmmel increasing
(hu standard dollar to 40U grains of standard
to cliantro the value of gold or silver. Let Con
gress remonetize sliver, and If a large dllfur
cnee remained between (he. gold and silver dol
lar, then it would be time to determine bv what
method they should be equalized. He admit
ted that St was desirable to equalize the gold
and silver dollars, and to let them float here
and abroad with the same value. In order to
make them equal, It was nut necessary to In
crease the silver dollar. The gold dollar might
bo brought down sumo and the silver dollar
might be brought up some, though u more just
plan would be that adopted in 131J4, which had
braugtit hlgber*Drlced coin down Instead of
putting the lower-priced coin up. The United
States was the great silver-producing coun
try of the world, mid the advocates of
this bill, wero appealing to the representa
tives of the people to let tuu great
Amcricau money product be money, instead of
letting it bo demonetized. (Applause on the
Democratic side.] If he wore the strongest ad
vocate of resumption, he would sav, reinforce
3'our gold with all the silver money you can at
the old ratio of sixteen to one, the highest rate
ever established between silver and gold, and
when tho foreign trade turns against yon, if It
should turu, mid when you have got to send
your bonds or gold to Europe, If \ou have
$200,000,000 or $1100,000,000 in silver coin behind
your gold, you can send vour gold coin mid mil
subject yourself to the humiliation, and shuck
of a suspension of specie payments. |Aj)-
piausa on the Democratic side.)
deferring to the demonetization of silver hv
the nations ol the world, lie said the reason fur
It was that Hie usurers of the world had com
bined to double wealth, to double private mid
public debts, mid to double private expendi
tures npim the shoulders of the laboring masses
of the people. It was
aguiust the people of the world, lie referred
to the demonetization act of IbTU as a "damned
fraud." it would bo as well to search for the
murderer of Nathan os to search lor the man
who nut upon that law the demonetization of
the silver dollar. [Applause on the Democratic
side.] Of course, tie said, ironically, it was a
mistake. It only added five billions to the
wealth of the creditor class, It was a mistake,
but men did not often make so much money by
a mistake.
Mr. Kelley—Was It uot more of an accident
tlian a mistake.
Mr. Ewing replied that lie dip not -believe It
was an accident. Jlu believed It wan an In*
(lentous, well-devised, secretly-executed fraud
upon the American people. [Applause ou
the Democratic side.] The stealth <• with
which It was done only Illustrates
the saying In the ‘‘Merry Wives of
Windsor ”: “ Where inonoy coca before nil ways
Hu open." The people of Europe and the Unit
ed States were laboring under a heavy weight of
public and private debts and taxation. There
must come relief, there must come some revival
of prices from the enforced cold level, ami It
could only come by restoring silver and cold to
an equal, free, unlimited coinage. Whatever
tended to degrade and Impoverish the laboring
musses of the country, tended inevitably and
swiftly to the establishment of class rule, which
had always and everywhere cursed humanity.
There was a inouoy-iuetal which was before
Abraham, before Troy, which had remained ure
eminently the money of clvlllxcd mcu. It had
It had lighted Home Into Imperial splendor.
When It had been extinguished the world ted
sunk for 1,000 years Into darkness. WTieirU
had been rekindled. It had lightened the civili
zation of two Continents.
In conclusion, he said: Shall wousoit; shall wo
open our Miuts to Us unlimited coinage; shall
we use It to pav off and discharge the enormous
burden of public mid private debt under which
the energies of our people are sinking, to Ilghteu
tho tremendous tuxes which so oppress Utu peo
ple! Shull wo use it to scud through all the
arteries of our Industries the throb of renewed
and vigorous life! Stgtramuushln. honesty,
patriotism, all demand that we should (ear from
our statute hooks those acts of demonetization
which the subtle mid devilish hand of the
money-power inscribed there In the dark, and lu
the name of fllu people, and la the full light of
day, reinstate silver where It stood from the
foundation of our (loveruroent. [Applause ou
the Democratic side lu the galleries.]
At the conclusion of Mr. Ewing’s speech Mr,
Warner demanded the previous question, pend
ing which Mr. Kllllugor moved to lay the bill ou
the table. The yeas and nays were ordered on
that motion, pending which Mr. Conger moved

''ABlllnoton, I). C., May R—The decision
of Judire Dundy at Umahu, In the Standing Deal
habeas corpus cnee, in which he virtually de
clares Indians citizens, with the right to go
where they please, regardless of treaty stipula
tions, is regarded by the Government as a
heavy blow to the present Indian system, and
that, If sustained, it will prove extremely
dangerous alike to whites and Indians. If U»u
power of the Government to hold Indians upon
their reservation, or to return them when tlicv
escape, is denied, the Indians become a body of
tramps, moving without restraint wherever they
please, and exposed to the attacks of frontiers
men without redress from the Government.
