irom the eorarui'tee on rules authorising
the appropriation committee to inaert a
clause in the sundry civil appropriation
bill authorizing the transfer of tho mili
tary pricon at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.,
from the jurisdiction of the war depart
ment to the department .of justice. Op
position wae made by Broderiek, B>pub
licau, of Kaneu<, who sEirertod that the
question had been before tho military
committee and contended that the house
had already entered a report on the pro
posed change, for whiih ho saw no
reason. The plan was expired by
Curtis, Republican, of New York, who
contended that soldiers sent to prison
for minor olfonßee woro ■.Objected to evil
associations. The resolution alter some
debato was adopted, IPG to 1115.
Debate on the currency bill loing re
sumed, Hoover, Democrat, of Pennsyl
vania, gave notice of an umcudmunt. It
proposes a section to enable tho eocro
tury of the treasury to fund treasury
notes which muy remain iv circulation
after August, 1895, which were issued
under the actß ol February 25. 1809, July
11, 18(12, March 3, 1803, and July 14,
18911, by iisoing bondi to nu amount not
exceeding $5'.>0,000,000, redeemable at
tho pleasure of the United otutea alter

with lutorejt at 3 per cent payable semi
annually iv gold bonds, to he of such
denominations nut loss than $59 anil to
be sold at not less than par for gold or
for treasury nu'.eo.
Members flocked around Sibley, Diimo
crat uf Penu'dyivunia, when ho began a
characteristic addross against the bill.
He waa applauded when he Raid: "II
ever rebuke wus needed to one who haa
attempted to trample down the pre
rogatives cf a people it is needed for
him who haa at'empted to usurp this
entire government himself. The time
has come when there ohonld be some

the bill would incur the diapleasur.i ol
the kings. Four days after the repeal > f
tbe Sherman act, members had told Ir'm
they had been promised revenue colic.t
orships if they would vote for the repeal,
"The gentleman makes a very broad
assertion," eaid Coombs, Democrat i f
New York, ond he aaked Sibloy to men
tion names.
"I went three days ago to a mcmbor
and asked him to allow me the privi'ega
of calling him up here," replied Sibley,
"tie eaid : "Mr. Sibley, you will place

"within 10 feat of ma sits n man who

"But do you consider it fair," asked
Coombs, with a porceptible tremor iv
hie voicb, "to make so gravo a charge
against tiie udm'uistratiou and not give

"Already padlocks have been on mv
lips too long and I intend to throw them
off," rein nod Sibley.
"VVhtn were padlocks put on

Democrat of Ohio. There wan itreal
confusion and excitement following the

continued Sibley, "hacaueo I hoped to

Outhwaite had pushed forward, and
again uttered the question: "Who put
padlocks on your lips 1"
Sibloy hesituted a moment, and with
increased earnestness eaid : "Lot me tell
you, gentlemen, I am not talking tod,ay
with men who believe iv going to hell iv
a handcart instead of to heaven sup
ported by truth. Let me tell you aUo
that I am uot addressing men who be
lieve more in a bobtail flush than a con
trite heart." Shouts of applause aud
laughter greetod this statement. Sibley
then proceeded to relate tho •Xpetienos
Of Dionysius, when lie was again inter
rupted by Outhwaite, who asked- "Was
it Dionyjius who put padlocks on your
Sibley made no reply, and proceeded
to addresß himself to tho details of the
pending bill.
Mr. Sibley was frequently interrupted
by questions, and when he demurred
from answering because he hud not been
given notice, and sail that Lis time
would uot be extended, although "uot ■
man spoke in favor of the gold trust of
the world who was not giver, unlimited
time," Mr. Pence, Populist of Colorado,
asked that he be permitted to duiah, but
Mr. Outhwaite objected.
"We saw your distinguished executive
after the election of 1892," Mr. Sibley
continued, "hie himself away lor recrea
tion. Where on earth did he go? To
the classic shores of 'Hog Island,' The
Bible says that when they are ret at

"There was a panic being precinitated
by the vultures of tho banks," Mr.
Sibloy shouted, "beside which the last
panic waa a gentle zaphyr to a shrieking
cyclone." He had figures which he lud
prepared last June and which, at tne
solicitation of friends', he had refrained
from using, allowing that banks aud
trusts could uot pay 89 cents on tl.e
dollar. The administration haa bo car
ried out the declaration that the purity
of all kinds of money would bo main
tained, that all other kinds bat gold had
tniorns mere promissory notes lor pay
ment of tho gold.
Spooking ot bis Democratic principles,
Mr. Sibley said ihut if he got into
what he supposed was a mahogany
wagon and found it wan veneered bass
wood being driven over a rocky road by
an inexperience 1 driver, he would jumu
cue and would not earn macfa where lie
landed. He drew a picturesque sketch
of Democrats sitting aroui d oanquet

of Andiew Jackson aud talking theories

And if Andrew Jackson'! spirit were to
appear it would, he concluded, kick
over tho table and bahish those upjstlea
in disgntt.
Cnx, Democrat of Tenr.orsee, followed
with a careful argument in uupport of
the bill. Stone, li-ipublicsn of Penn

WasihnutuN, J»u. B.—Further debate
on Lodge'e resolution asking (or inform*
ation why the American ships wore
withdrawn from Hawaiian waters took
place in the senate today. I'almer,
Democrat ol Illinois, delivered a speech
againßt the resolution, regarding it as an
invasion by the senate of the powers of
the president. He defended the acts of
the present administration in Hawaiian
affairs. Gray, Damocrat of Delaware,
ulao opposed its adoption,
Brice, Democrat of Ohio, presented
the conference report on the military
acadeiuy appropriation bill, and it was
agreed to.
Tuo Lodge resolution calling for in
formation why United States ships of
war had been withdrawn from Hawaiian
waters was then considered, and Palm

oanaee. Whence did the senate, he
asked l derive tbe right to call on the
president for hia reasons for executive
acta? No audi power existed, and wue

that the American senate would discuss

Mr. Aldrich, Republican, of Rhode

The senator was on hia way to the
meeting of the finance committee, today,
when oakod about the Btory published
in some ol the morning papers that a
compromise had been agreed upon in
the eunato.
"It is all rot," lie said. "I suppose
yon mean the stuff about a financial
measure to be offered in the senate by
cert..in DemootatiO senators. There is
nothing in it. Furthermore in my
opinion, there is no possibility of pass
ing any financial bill in ihe senate. We
have no rules and five senators can pre
vent action on auy bill during this ses
sion. The only hope for prompt and
efficient action was In the Democratic
party, and we failed at the outset of the

senate rules bo as to provide for stop
ping debate and then resolutely takinir
up the financial question and the tariff

caucus from the senate deliberately re
fused to do anything of the kind.

Washington, Jh>i. B.—As indicated in

government of Spain looking to the
restoration of tho tariff on American
products entering Cuba and Porto Rico
has almost reached a antiefnetory con
It ia true that pome minor details re
main to be adjasied, but little difficulty
is exuected in aeenrinz thoir settlement.
It appears that in conceding to the
United States the benefits ol tbe mini
mum tariff Spain nr. altio seemed a
anbaiantiul advantage. Her West In
dian colonies ordinarily supply tbe
United States with about 75 per cent of
tho sugar imported into the country.
Thus the sugar is liable to a duty of oue
tenth cont per pound over and above
the 40 per cent duty imposed on Cuban
sugar and in onnsequeaoe the Cuban
planters practically receive a portion
equal to the discriminating duty paid
by Elnropean eugars, and it is believed
will thus be ablo to control the market
of the greatest sugar oouaumtug country
on tbe globe.
