being taken at an unfair advantage. Ue would therefore state tbe facts and allow ths senate to reach its own con clusion. Of the three states in ques tion, two were not silver producing states, and those two states were repre sented in the senate by two senators who favored the repeal of the Sherman law. In response to a question of Wolcott (Rep.) of Colorado, Washburn said he referred to the states of Washington and Wyoming. "I would like the Senator from Min nesota," said Dubois, "to state by whose authority he makes that assertion." "By the authority of the senators themselves," replied Washburn. "I imagine those senators will resent tbat imputation," said Dubois. "1 state that the senators from Washington (Squire) and Wyoming (Carey) are not for the unconditional repeal of the Sher man law. The senator from Washington has offered an amendment in tbe inter- est of silver." "The senator from • Washington (Squire) told me," Washburn declared, "tbat he would vote for tbe uncondi tional repeal of tbe purchasing clause of the Sherman act." This closed the incident, and Kyle (Pop.) of South Dakota addressed the senate in opposition to the repeal bill. Kyle ridiculed the idea that witb free coinage tbe United States would be flooded with ailver; on the contrary it was doubtful whether tbe future yield of silver will be enough to furnish tbe necessary increase of currency. McMillan of Michigan, tben addressed the senate in favor of repeal. Inter national bimetallism being out of the question for tbe present, be said this country ought to use all the silver possible without departing from a gold standard. Gold should be held pri marily for use in paying foreign bal ances and to this end a plan of inter national gold currency, based on actual deposits of gold in tbe sub-treasury in New York and the national banks of other countries should be adopted, cer tificates of deposits to be transferable by telegraph, and balances to be paid through an international clearing bouse. In discussing money as a basis of credit he showed that national banks were in the habit of reducing the reserves be low the safety point, and favoring a law absolutely prohibiting national banks from paying or receiving interest on de posits. He also favored a convertible bond plan of exchanging bonds for cur rency in order to obtain ready money in times of crisis or panic. The houss bill to extend the time for completing tbe work of the eleventh census was passed. Consideration of the repeal bill was resumed and Dolpb of Georgia took the floor to give bia views as to the real cause of the business and financial trouble, wbich be said was fear of hostile legislation. In the course of bis remarks, Dolph aaid if the Minneap olis platform had bsen believed to mean free coinage, the Republican party would bave been dead and buried and damned beyond hope of resurrection. "Any worse than it is now?" asked Teller. Dolph ignored the question in the general laughter which followed. After an executive session the senate adjourned. _ HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. Several Spirited TUta During tha De bate on the Tneker Bill. Washington, Oct. 2.—ln tbe honse today Dinsmore of Arkansas opened the second week's debate on tbe bill to re peal the federal election laws with an argument in favor of repeal. Benson of Alabama followed in sup port of tbe measure. He described the military government of the south after the war, and speaking of the war itself, declared with emphasis that he per formed his duty as a confederate sol dier and was proud of it. "I believe I was right," aaid he, "and under similar circumstances would do it again." "Ob, yon did not whip us," he added humorously, in reply to a suggestion from Lacey of lowa tbat tbey ehould be forced back into line again; "You did not whip us; we wore ourselves out try ing to whip you." Laughter.] Discussing the .action of congreeß on tbe silver question and the split in the Democratic party, he hotly declared that some of the Democrats ought to go over to tbe Republicans. "We ought to meet and exchange prisoners," said be, "divide at the Alleghaniea and proceed with the fight." Applause from the silver men on both sides of the house. Lacey interrupted Denson at one point to Inquire whether the ex-Confed erate from Alabama did not believe the iramers of tbe constitution intended to found a nation in perpetuity. "How do you spell nation?" said Denson. "With a big N," replied Lacey. "Well, that's exactly where wediffer," said the Alabama man. "1 sometimes spell it witb a small n; always when it applies to banks." He thought tbe constitution un doubtedly conferred power on congress to perpetuate the union, but that clause invoked in support of these laws was only to be used when the states de faulted. Clark of Missouri followed with a vigorous speech in support of tbe bill. Tbe people did not like, he said, the idea of United States marshals swagger ing around the polls saying who should Vats and wbo should not. The mission of the Democratic party from its incep tion had been to give local self-govern ment. Cleveland's last victory declared the same thing. Wilson of Washington inquired why, if such was the case, Cleveland import ed foreigners as Indian agents into the western states. "Perhaps there are cases where the president cannot find men of enfficient intelligence and integrity to fill those places in your state," suggested Clark. "The only scalawag to whom we ob ject," said Wilson, hotly, "waß sent from your state." Clark then delivered a tirade against the pretended love of the Republicans for tbe colored race. "They call him negro," he said, "we call bim nigger. They give him taffy; we give him food and clothing." Murray, a colored representative from South Carolina, had a tilt with Clark, and the incident finally closed with tbe assertion by Clark that the color line would not be wiped out until the colored lace divided as the white man did on economic and other issues. Murray asked what good there was for tbe colored man to divide nntil the wbite man d<d, and Clark said the whites could not divide and would not nntil the bugaboo of negro destination was gone.

Washington, Oct. 2. —Assistant Secre tary Hamlin haa issued a circular to collectors and other officers of customs modifying the instructions contained in the treasury department circular dated August 1, 1891, to collectors of customs at ports where Chinese first arrive in the United States.
