SENSATtON IN THE SENATE
(Continued From First Page.)
1y no reference to the senator from New
York. But I infant to say that under
this adminstration there had grown up
•i system by which every fellow who
stood at the door of the treasury depart
ment seemed to suppose that he was of
ciallyconnected with the department and
was competent to Instruct the people In
matters of finance. He had no refer
ence whatever to th? senator from New
York. Even the officer whose duty is
purely mechanical—to fabricate coin—
is telling us daily through the public
press what ought to be the policy of the
"Of course," Mr. Hill resumed, "I am
not responsible for the utterances of the
director of the mint. I am one of those
who doubted the policy of his appoint
ment, but \ suppose he has a right, offi
cially. to discuss the finance question,
and he is probably as competent," Mr.
Hill added with a bitterness of expres
sion which showed that he did not en
tirely accept Mr. Teller’s disavowal in the
matter of the " ‘tide water,’ " "as gentle
men who hail from the wilds of Colo
"I am not authorized,” he continued,
"to speak for the secretary of the treasu
ury. I am nut authorized to speak for the
president. 1 speak for no one except
myself. 1 utter my own sentiments, and
because the secretary of the treasury
and the president have seen fit to make
certain recommendations in accordance
with views which T expressed a year ago,
the senator from Colorado cannot crowd
me off my own platform."
The debate here came to an end.
Democrats Say the Revenue Bill Will Not
Washington, Dec. 27.—The republicans
h£W a caucus of not more than ten or fif
teen minutes’ duration after the adjourn
ment of the senate today. It was decided
that republican senators should be pres
ent Monday when, the vote on the reor
ganization of committees will be taken,
so there should be no doubt about the
presence1 of a quorum. The committee to
fill committee vacancies reported that it
had had its attention called to the fact
that too many men had been assigned to
the committee on Indian affairs, and
Messrs. Mitchell and Pettigrew were In
structed to arrange the matter with the
minority committee. The republicans
also found that in changing the names of
some of the minority committees they
had run counter to the appropriation
bills which authorized the payment of
salaries to the clerks to those commit
tees, designating them by name. This
will be corrected by the adoption of a
joint resolution making the appropria
tions applicable to the clerks of the com
mittees so changed.
The progress of the tariff bill will not
bo impeded in the-senate. It was referred
to the committee on finance today, and
subsequently several democratic mem
bers of that committee were in confer
ence with Mr. Gorman and other leaders
discussing the democratic policy in deal
ing with the measure. It was tacitly un
derstood among those senators that
there should be no unreasonable time
consumed either in committee or on the
floor of the senate. It is believed that the
debate in the senate will be of much
shorter duration than has been antici
pated. and that the democrats, after
they have stated their position, will per
mit it to come to a vote. The prediction
is made, however, by leading democrats
that the bill as it came from the house
cannot pass the senate.
mv. Tuunitrra nas issuea a rail ror a
mooting of the finance committee next
Tuesday, the regular meeting day. Al
though the committee will reorganized
before the bill Is reported Mr. Voorhees
deemed It proper, as he is still chair
man. tn call the meeting at onoe and let
the committee deal with the subject. Mr.
Voorhees believes the bill will he con
sidered promptly in the eommittpe and
reported to the senate as expeditiously as
possible. No member of the finance com
mittee Is willing to predict whether or
not the bill will be amended in the senate
THE GOLD RESERVE.
Cleveland Will Issue Bonds Unless Con
Washington. Dec. 27.—The treasury
gold reserve at the close of business,
with nil withdrawals out, stands at $63,
868.320. Tlie amount at gold reported
withdrawn at New York for export today
was $2,000,000 and $418,000 in exchange

Secretary Carlisle spent most of the
day in consultation wllh the president,
and was at the treasury only for a few
minutes. The Impression is general that
the president, living up to the language
of his message to congress on Its open
ing, will, within a short time, sell $100,
000,000 bonds, unless there Is evidence
that some relief measure will pass con
gress speedily. The best opinion is that
the chances for the senate and house to
concur quickly in any measure that will

SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING

Location of Saloons.
I recc^'iinend. in Issuing licenses for

quors, wines, beers or other intoxicants
be regulated and restrained to and with

license for their sale be issued to any
parties'desiring to locate outside of the

thence westward along the south side of
First alley to the east side of Thirteenth

side of Thirteenth street to the north

My reasons for these recommendations
are that we are now confronted with th£
fact, which w'e cannot ignore, but must
firmly and at the same time justly to
all the many Interests and demands of
the city, take hold of and settle in a
proper manner. *
With the small police force at the cnnj
mand of the police commissioners, anil
which we are powerless to increase on
account of the financial condition erf
the city, we see saloons open in the resi
dent portion of the city and along cer
tain prominent streets at points so dis
tant from the center «of the city that it id
simply impossible to properly police them
and their surroundings In such a manner
as to afford protection to women arid
children passing, or to these places #f
business themselves j
We had two striking instances of this
at the last session of the board, backed
up by such, statements as in your Judg
ment, called for immediate and prompt
action. While T thoroughly
every movement, looking to restraining
lawlessness and violence, and to protect
the lives and property of our citizens and
the fair name of our city, still I am de
cidedly of the opinion that this restraint
and regulation contemplated by law,
should be along lines which treat all
alike. Any other way of handling these
vested questions will always be open to
the charge of unfairness and injustice
on the ground that all are not treated
After much thought over this ques
tion and conferene<rwith the police com
missioners, who by law are charged with
the execution of our laws. I am convinced
that it would be much fairer and more
practicable and more acceptable, to adopt
the recommend a tions as above suggested
and I earnestly hope that this board will
see its way to doing^so.
I again renew-the recommendation that
the ordinance presented on November 20
and placed in the'ttfTifds of the committee
of police and sanitation for investigation*’
and report, be taken up and adopted.
I have already expressed my view's upon
this matter in such terms and at such
length, that I do not care to again ex
press them in this recommendation, but
will defer them until the ordinance is re
ported back by the committee.

The Old Frame Structure to Be Replaced With

rian church stood at Fifth avenue and
Eighteenth street for twenty-three
years, but it is now gone and will soon be
replaced by one of the handsomest and
most attractive church structures in the
city. The church has had a long, hard
struggle, but under adverse circum
stances has overcome many obstacles
The first pastor was Dr. Armstrong,
-Ho was a good, noble man and had been
. a foreign missionary prior to accepting
1*he pastorate of the church. He was
succeeded by Rev, Mr. Blair, and then
‘game Dr. Denson, how of Burton, Tex.
Dr. F. J. Tyler succeeded Dr. Denson
and remained in charge of the church un

fir. George T, Stalnback was called to
the charge. The latter remained only
tone year, and on accepting his resigna
tion the congregating palled Rev. R. D.
■Wear to the pastorate.
Shortly after conringhere Mr. Wear be
gan urging the congregation to build the
new church edifice they had for years
contemplated, and finally steps looking
to that end were entered upon with the
•result that within a few weeks enough
.'money had been guaranteed to justify

The general'assembly of the Cumber
,lai)d Presbyterian church meets in this
•city next May, and itiS’-the Intention and
th4 hope of the congregation to have
their new house of worship ready for
dedication by that time.
Dr. Randreth’s Address.
Dr. Randreth began by saying that his
mission here would he fulfilled when he
had obeyed the scripture injunction to
"rejoice with those who do rejoice." Upon
this, the proudest day in the history of
this congregation, it was his greatest
pleasure, as an humble member of the
Cumberland Presbyterian denomination
at large, to assure the members of the
Birmingham church that from New Jer
sey to the Golden Gate Cumberland Pres
byterians rejoiced with the heroic little
band who in these financially troublous
times dared to undertake so large a
building enterprise. While business In
stitutions of whatever kind were not
only not tearing down their old barns to
build, but were even anxious to tear down
the new that the old and less expensive
might stand again, the members of this
congregation have razed to the ground
their old chapel and have begun the erec
tion of this handsome edifice. And they
will succeed; succeed, first .because the
house is needed, and secondly, because
the people have a mind to work.
Ppon this first anniversary of Pastor
Wear’s residence the speaker recalled a
visit to this site some months ago. when
together he and the pastor listened to the
voice of God as expressed in local needs
and denominational opportunity, and
that voice uttered to the Birmingham
congregation the command. "Arise and
build.” The command has been obeyed.
Young and old have responded, and by
their gifts have made the early comple
tion of this house of worship an assured
"Rut.” said the speaker, “your mayor
has said well and wisely, that the erec
tion of such structures as tills is neces
sary to the permanent peace and pros
perity of your city. Material Birming
ham's fame has gone far abroad. A
railroad friend, whose home is in iny own
ambitions city, said to me a few days
ago, 'Birmingham is the best city on 1 lie
whole Louisville and Nashville railway
system, and though Nashville itself oc
cupies a ccertain very intimate position
in respect to the railway aforesaid. I
dared not say him nay,
"But, people of Birmingham, members
of all churches and of no churches, if the
material prosperity of Birmingham out
grows your religious advancement, that
very fact will lie the city's curse. Tf
your churches are not as numerous and
as well cared for as your furnaces and
factories, sad indeed will he the fate of
your city, now so rapidly growing to
greatness, If soul-seeking shall not be
as zealous as fortune seeking, the whistle
of your locomotive and engines will be
but’ a faint echo of the shrieks of the
neglected lost, and the belching flames
of your furnaces but an intimation of the
fiery doom of the thousands of men and
wom-n whose salvation you might have
sought, snd whoso eternal 'interests you
disregarded. In the name, therefore, of
Birmingham’s future good and blessing,
I plead wllh you all to aid thes* earnest
people to complete debt free this worthy
structure, the church home of God’s
people and God’s poor,”
Addressing himself to the members of
the church, Mr. Landreth said that when
completed this should. In the most sacred
sense, be the house of God. As such it
should not be a free forum for bitter sec
tarian word wars, but that however Its
pulpit might, as it should, thunder the
glad doctrines of a Presbyterianism
which proclaims that “whosoever will”
may be saved and only he who
will not will be lost. however
zealously may here be taught
the peculiar and vital doctrines
of this denomination, It will never slander
the faith or attack the sincerity or vio
late the feelings of other earnest Chris
tians of whatever creed. Proceeding, he
said that this Thurch should not degen
erate Into a mere club house or place for
fashion display. f<Jr t£e elevation of caste
above the democracy ‘ of the gospel of
Christ. It ts not to be a vestibuled train,
cushioned, and a-move, In which the
member may sleep away a passage Into
heaven, nor was it to be a theater, con
cert hall or place of merchandise, nor
yet a graveyard, solemn and forbidding.
Its every part is to be a holy of holies,
but as happy as holiness of life ought to
make places and people. He advocated
the making of a beautiful church without
and within, urged the attractions of mu
sic and flowers, and all the agencies God
ordained for the attracting of men and
which men have prostituted to sinful
uses and abuses. He thought the church
should be In the tenderest, truest sense
a home, with Gocf'tTie Father, and where
the humblest of the tired children of
earth may find sweet rest and heavenly
communion, and where the stranger shall
find a glad welcome to our Father’s
The church should be a depository
where the worshipers shall gladly give
back to God as He bath prospered them,
devoutly thanking Him for the blessed
The church should be at all times and
in every respect a workshop where a
wise division of labor is the rule and
where every member shall, with might
and main, build over against his own
house, all working while they pray and
praying while they work.
But above all and better than all the
church should be the v?ry gateofHeaven
through which the sinning sons of men
shall enter Into the sacred relation of
sons of God. Here should be thenewbirth
room of numberless men and women,
and the constant prayer and purpose of
those who call this “God’s church and
ous” must be soul winning, or h would
be a mercy if 'this should always have
continued to be "the little church around
the corner," or if’God would even yet
destroy it from the earth which it would
cumber and whose face it would mar.
But these consecrated people will make
this church the gate of Heaven, and they
deserve ootnmendatlon for what they
have already done'and substantial sym
pathy in all they"Will undertake to the
end that the house, completed, furnished
and paid for. may be solemnly dedicated
to nature’s God in the early spring-tima
when reviving nature will shout in ac
cord a thousand "amens” and "hallelu
jahs” as the words are spoken which
express the final realization of this con
gregation’s hope and prayer for a fit and
finished church home.
