SHERMAN'S NEW SILVER BILL.
The Senate Finance Committee
Bepoits It Favorably.
\ * •
It Provides for the B*p«al of tbe
Silver Purchase Act.
Western Senators Strenuously Oppose
the Mew Measure—The McGarra
han Claim Bill Receives
Ita Death Blow.
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Jan. 17.—Perhaps the
most important meeting the finance
committee of tbe senate baa held dor
ing this congress was that of this morn
ing, which resulted in the decision to
favorably report the Sherman bill to
repeal the act of 1890 for the pnrcbase
of silver. Subsequently Sherman re
ported the bill and it was placed on the
calendar.
The meeting was largely attended,
every member being preseat but Sena-
John P. Jones and Senator Vanee, who
is ill. While the majority favor tbe
action taken, vigorous opposition was
manifested by Harris of Tennessee and
Voorhees of Indiana. Those who voted
to report the bill favorably were: Mor
rill, Sherman, Allison, Aldrich, His
cock, McPherson, Carlisle. Senators
Voorbeesand Harris entered emphatic
protests against the proposed action of
the committee and would bave been
joined by Senators Jones and Vance had
ihey been present.
The meeting is said to have bsen in
teresting, this probably referring to tbe
peeches made by Harris and Voorhees.
They were outvoted, however, and the
discussion will now bs transferred to the
floor of tbe senate.
Senator McPherson said the bill is
satisfactory to him, although he would
rather have had his resolution reported.
One feature he did not approve was that
which postponed the time to the Ist of
January, 1894, but still he thought it
afforded relief, for the people would
know that at tbat time at least the in
flation of the currency would end and
the country return to a sound money
basis.
Teller and Voorhees do not believe
the bill can pass, and Voorhees is cred
ited with saying not 10 Democratic sen
ators will vote for it.
IN THE SENATE.

tive vote falling eight short of the con
stitutional majority.
After the passage of several unimpor
tant bills and a second installment of
Puffer's argument in favor of a conetitu
tional amendment limiting the presi
dential office to one term, tbe McGarra
han bill was taken up and an argument
in Bupport of it made by Wilson of
lowa. After some debate, tbe senate
refused to pass tbe bill over the presi
dent's veto by the necessary two-thirds
vote. The vote was: Yea*, 29; nays,
18.

ground of its unconstitutionally. Fur
ther arguments against the constitution

Delaware, Vest of Missouri and Piatt of
Connecticut. Piatt will resume bis ar

RAILROAD COMBINES.
Opinion* p ro „nd Yon to the Bill to
Allow Pooling
WAsrnNOTO.v, Jan. 17.—Mr. Patterson
of Tennessee in tbe report of the major
ity of tbe bouse commerce committee on
the bill allowing pooling, says the com
mittee is of the opinion that under the
arrangement providing for pooling no
barm will befall the public and an op
portunity will be given to intelligently
solve tbe much mooted problem.
Ltnd of Minnesota and Mallory of
Florida represent the minority, and re
port that they feel duty 'bound to
protest against tbe pooling sec
tion of tbe hill and call
attention to some of their objections to
it. They say: "The bill takes away
the only safeguard we bad heretofore
against railroad extortion. Competition
frustrated many well-laid schemes to
oppress the public; tbie embarrassment
the bill removes "
In conclusion it is is said to be unfair
to tbe interstate commerce commission
to subject them to tbe importuning and
pressure thia bill will cause, should it be
come a law.

It may be remarked tbat no one knows

He Dm Give* Up Hunting.
"No, I don't go hunting any more," aaid
Peyton Brown to a party of traveling men
who were talking sport at the Laclede. "1
was over ln 'Illinois some days am and con
cluded to make A try fbt small game in
the Oltaw bottoms. I discovered a large
flock of ducks leisurely swimming about
on the bosom of the muddy stream, stand
ing on their heads and having a good time
generally. I crawled through a briar
patch that made me look like an escaped
smallpox patient, and wuded through a
morass up to my bett far 200 yards to get
a shot at them. When about forty yards
distant I turned loose both barrels, killed
six and crippled live more. Only one of the
lot got away. 1 nearly drowned myself
bagging my game, came within an ace of
getting bit by a water moccasin that
looked to be a mile long, and lost a hun
dred dollar gun in th* treacherous morass.
"Just as I got the last dead duck in my
'pouch a farmer oajne out of a log cabin
that I hadn't before observed, and ' 'lowed
as heow I'd pay for tbem ar dncks or bsd
know the reason why.' As he carried a
lingering eternity of a rifle on his shoulder
and was followed by a bench legged bull
dog of cannibalistic tendencies I forked
over a fiver and obtainod permission tc
bang myself before the kitchen Are until
the mud baked on me. Then I started to
town through the woods, feeling like a
sheep killing dog onught with wool in his
teeth."—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
