fiou on the hues of tue President's

Mr. i:ulloui?"1 would like to

which would produce more money
for the use of tho Treasury."
Mr. Nest?"It would lie propor

I do not think there is the slightest

Secretary of the Treasury stuiod to
me the day hoioro yesterday th.it he
needs no legislation to meal any do

exist."
.Mr. Shermau, a member of the
committoc, said that the contest,
whether this country should be ou
u standard of silver or on u utaudurd
of gold money, could not ho longer
avoided. That wan tho question
which loomed in tho distance. He
hud hoped that for the present ses?
sion it would not have to be taken
up. Every man who was fumiliar
with the Qoaucial 001/ditiou felt that
it wns ueoossarv to extend to tho
Government some relief under pro
sent circumstances,' aud yet Sena?
tors were told that tbey should give
no relief whatever except with the
adoption of a measure for the free
coinage of silver.
"He believes that iho adoption of
the system of free coinage of silver
would degrade the natum among
too liuaueial people of tlio world,
among tho business men of tho
world, yea, among tho laboring men
of tho world. It would do so more
than any other meusuro that could
be devised, if, therefore, tho choice
lay between u gold Btaudard und a
silver standard, and if ouo or the
other must he adopted, ho waa for
that standard winch was the Li^lu-st
aud liest, und which was tho siiiud
ord of all tho civilized ami Ubristiau
nations of Europe, while the other
standard hud boon rejected over and
over again.
?Tint," Mr. Sherman continued,
"1 huvo always believed und I still
believe that both silver uud gold
ought to be maintaiuod ns tbo circu?
lation of this eouutry?gold us the
highest measure ol value in all our
commercial relations abroad and as
11 basis of our commercial and bust
uess rotations at home, and silver to
bo used to tho largest extent possi
hie, so long as it does not demone?
tize gold. 1 urn 61 that belief now,
hut I urn bound to suy that tho
Committee on finance is utterly
helpless to de.il with this vast ques?
tion."
Mr. Hill contended that the first
duty of tbe .Senate was to ascertain
what was wanted by the admiuistra
tiou and the treasurv; whether it
wanted temporary relief or Bomc
elaborate legislation involving a
onaugo in the currency and tiuau
ciul ayatetn oi the country.
.Mr, \ est interrupted Mr. Hid to
Btate that the president in bis mes
sage said there wu-- not a deiioieuoy
but it surplus, but mat it was not 111
gold.
.Mr. Hill replied that thero wore
those who thought tho President's
1.unsure took 11 rather cheerful
% tow of the condition of tho linaucus,
However, ho cubed attention to the
fact that the estimate of tho Secre?
tary of the Treasury suggested a
deiioieuoy of 81U,(h30,OOU. The
Senat?! should have it definitely de?
termined whether any temporary
IIuanoial legislation was desired or
something more radical, lor the reu
sou tbut ho bolioved |ttlO country
should bo put aright on tho subject
so that tho administration might

Mr. Hill BObmiltod n resolution
