this sentiment ha lurniahed the foilow

positively that Dr. McGlynn'a teachings
on the land question were not in any

which ho thought ought to be inves

Attorney-General Olney said the

later, he added, they would have been
too late to recall Ihe confirmation an tl c

Washington, Dee. 20. —The debate on
tbe currency bill was comparatively
brief in the house today, owing to the
exercises in connection with the accept
ance of tbe statues of Webster and
Messrs. Sparry of Connecticut, a
Democratic raembor of tbe banking and
currency committee, and Brosiua of
Pennsvlyania, a Republican, cham
pioned and opposed tbe measure
respectively. The former vras opposed
to various features of the bill, but de
clared bis intention of voting for it if
nothing better could be secured.
On tbe opening of tbs session Brock
inridge of Kentucky reported the im
portant urgeucy oi the deficiency bill,
appropriating $300,000 for tbe consul.
This appropriation included trie defi
ciency bill which passed the bouse a
le* days »ko, which is being held up iv
tha senate. Breckinridge stated that
unless this supplementary bill was
passed immediately the work of the
census would stop. Cannon of Illinois
prevailed on Breckinridge to accept an
amendment appropriating $125,000 for
fees of jurors (also included in the
former bill), and, ua amended, the bill
wus passed.
On motion of Sickloo of New York a
bill waa passed to pension tbo widow of
the lute Maj.-Gan. Nathaniel P. Banks
at the rate of $100 a mouth.
Outuwaite presented a joint resolu
tion for tbe usual holiday adjournment
to beam Saturday, December 23d, and
end Thursday, January 3d. The resolu
tion was privileged.
English of New Jersey arose with the
intention of offering an amendment to
adjourn tomorrow.
Outhwaile cut him off with a demand
for the previous question. The gentle
man from New Jersey gave notice that
he would demand v quorum. The vote
only developed the presence of 45 mem
bars, aud Outhwaito withdrew tho reso
Tho house then went into committee
of the whole, and resumed considera
tion of the currODCy bill. Sperry of
Connecticut took the llaor in support
of the measure. Sperry said, person
ally fie did not fuvcr the revival of
state baiks, he was willing to ac
quiesco undor the conditions imposed
in order to Becure tho features oi
the moasure. He wi* believer in the
safety oi tbe fund principle, he said,
becaus9 it insured prompt redemption
of notes without espouse to the hold
era. It made the notes, practically na
tional currency.
Sperry argued that all legal tenders
and treasury notes of the government
should be retired. Their existence was
running the government in debt to
maintain gold payment. One hundred
million dollars bad already been bor
rowed, and if he were to indulge in proph
ecy, $..0,000,000 mora of bonds would
be isßued before Washington's birthday.
The impression was abroad tbat tbis
' government waa almost inaoWeat or
about to slip into a silver basil. Mr.
Sparry waa liborally applauded.
Mr. Broaius, Republican of I'onnsyU
vania, wbo followed in opposition, said
tbe other side presented a strantte spec
tacle. In the midst of the sensation*,
even those who declared they were in
favor of the bill admitted that they
were opposed to every section of it.
i At 2 o'clock when Mr. Brnsiua con-
I eluded li s argument, according to the
special order of tho exercises in connec
i tion with the reception and acceptance
of tha statues of Gran. John Stark and
! Daniel Webster from tbe state of New
; Hampshire begun.
Conaaltatlnn Looking to Amendment of
thn OnrveMOjr Kill,
Washington, Doc. 20.—A. conference
was held nt the treasury department to
day between .Secretary Carlisle and
Chairman Soringer nf tho house com
mittee on bankingnnd currency, relative
to amending Carlisle's currency bill now
before the house. The subject was gona
over fully, nud as a result of the talk
Springer will propose a number of
amendments designed to remove some of
the objections advanced against the bill
One uDjection ia that tinder section 7,
somo banks may be permitted to make
a circulation of till per cent on their
capital btock, while the bill limits the cir
culation to 76 per cent of the capital stock.
This would be remedied by requiring
the excess to ba returned by a deposit of
greenbacks. Under tbe existing pro
visions the time in which banka will ba
required to comply with the new law
may be extended for two years. The
house may tlx, hy nnicndment, the time
to a more remote date. The bill will ba
made so clear thitt holders of national
bank notes will be protected during the
time tbe old banks) are conforming to
the new law. Another amendment will
provide thnt the government will re
ceive old notes for internal taxes, can'el
them and isßtie notes under the new
It ia poesible theae, and other amend
ments that the Democratic majority of
t lm bauking committee may agree upon,
may be embraced in a substitute which
can be presented before tbe five minute
debate, begins. Such substitute, em
bodying all the amendments and iin-
I provements suggested by the debate is
j thought to be more desirable than hav
\ ing tho original bill patched from end to
end with amendments.
Tho conference did not bring out any
1 consideration of the three important
! amendments which have been urged on
| the lloor of the house, viz. : The issue
|of bonds to retire outstanding green
! backs, elimination of state banks and
the limiting of n bank's liability for
looses to other banks to one per cent.
Aa to the bond itmio to retire green
back r, thia will probably be oli'ered by
amendments, bnt it io believed the feel
ing against the bond issue will defeat
the amendment. The elimination of
the state banks and the limit of liabil
ity will also be presented aa independent
, amendments.

Washington, Due. 20. —Senator Par

fairs, has favorably reported a bill auth
oring the president to reapuoint John
Clyde Sullivan b paymaster in the navy,
with the relative rank of lieutenant*
commander, with un amendment pro

upright, worthy officer, which they
think Bhould be corrected as far as lies
in the power of oongieas.

Washington, Dec. 20. —It appears
