as an issue showed some life yes
terday in the House The members of the
body ere divided quite strictly upon
party lines and an animated discussion
brought out some strong expressions of
opinion especially from the members
from west of the Missouri Rter
The debate was precipitated by the mo
tion of Ilepresentatiie Hill to striKe from
the Sundry Civil bill the committee
amendment pnniding for un appropria
tion of 100000 to be used by the Feere
tary of the Treasury In defrajing the ex
penses incurred in shipping siher coin
from the mints to the banks
Representative Hill led the attack upon
the measure with the statement tint the
Government was being used by the ban s
by Individuals and by express compinii
and was being forced to raj exorbitant
charges which the Federal authorities
were under no necessity to pay
Representatics Bell and Shaforth of
Colorado replied to Mr Hill advancing
the theorj that to strike out the provision
for free transportation of siher would be
to legislate against silver and the at
tempt made by the Republicans was leally
fathered by a desire to drive siher cut of
circulation Both asserted that the strik
ing out of the clause would militate
against the Western States and keep
them from employing the kind of cur
rency which they hae been used to and
still desire The clause was retained
After the House had resolved itself into
Committee of the Whole Representative
IUU asked that the section of tho bill
providing for an appropriation of 10000
to be used by the Treasury to defray the
expense of transporting siher currency
be stricl en out He stated that he could
proie that the United States had been
used and used fraudulently In the matter
of the shipment of currency for private
individuals More than half of tlu silver
currency was shipped out at the expense
of the Government Other forms of monev
were transported at the expense of the
The Government of the United States
he- said Is being made a monkey of and
being forced by the banks to pay the ex
pense of shipping their own money An
express company in California has so
the Treasury records show forced the
Government to pay the espressage on its
own mccey transported by tho company
Itself The result of the striking out of
this i li use will be to make the circula
tion cf silver money more general
Representative JIcRse answered that
the tament of the expressage by the Gov
crcmen aided the distribution of silver
He stated that the iransportatlon oi the
piper certificates cost taking all things
Into consideration more than the trans
poraticu of silver He asked that all the
friend of silver as a mone should rail
to the support of the amendment which
gave the white metal free transportation
Representative Hill said he regretted
that the member from Arkansas should
make a party question out of the matter
under consideration and then continued
his speech stating that banKo in all parts
of the couatrj had taken unfair and
unjust advantoo j

iu moneys the Government
was being made uso of and that exorbitant
freight charges were being msde wtalch
the Government was obliged to pay He
had read also by the Clerk a lett r from
oxSecretary Carlisle sustaining his point
that the silver shipments did not aid to
distributing silver but that the silver as
a rule found Its way back to the place
from which it was shipped
Representative Bell asserted that the
people west of the Missouri River con
fined themselves almost entire to the
use of silver com while the people of the
East used paper in prefeience He said
that the silver coin drifted back to the
centres of trade which was only natural
He deplored the attempt made b this Ad
ministration to legislate to the detriment
of silver circulation No otar Adm nls
tration so far as he knew bad ever
made any objection to the free carriage of
Bilver He thought it the duty of the Gov
ernment to be superior to paltry expense
and to see that all parts of the country
were taken care of without regard to sec
tion A panic would result he felt sure
If the Republicans were allowed to tinker
with existing monetary conditlors which
he considered progressing to a satisfac
tory condition But though the policy of
distributing silver to the outlying dis
tricts should not be changed the abuse
of the free transportation should and
could be corrected
Mr Shafroth explained that here was
shortly to be a mint in Denver Col
which would alter conditions materially
To this Mr Hepburn replied that the Lea
ver banks gave silver because they could
have It sent to them free and imposed
the cartwheel upon tho people because
they would not bear the cxpressage upon
the paper money
Mr Shafroth continued saving that
though because of the proposed mint
Denver might not he hunt by the striking
out of the section it was against the
principle that he spoke If a mint was
arbitrarily established by the Gove nment
at one place the Government should ex
tend the privileges of that institution to
every part of the country He hinted that
the same principle might be applied to
gold and paper currency He was sure
that the provision of the bill was neces
sary to the proper distribution of silver
Mr Hill admitted the final statement of
Mr Shafroth as regarded the legitimate
hhlpments but said the point espec ally
to bo fought was the illegitimate use of
the privileges especially bj the express
companies who desired to get the express
Mr Shafroth claimed that unless them
was a real necessity for silver to go
from one place to another It would not
go and therefore the express companies
could not make business out of It
There Is something deeper in this bill
than the mere saving of a small expense
he Edid It Is just a little legislation
cgainst the money In use in our mining
communities The gentleman may think
that ft Is a good economic step but I
think that It Is a subject upon which snap
judgment should not be taken
Mr Hill was asked If he Intended to
Jeniflita against the silver dollar Ho re
died that he wa3 opposed to tho circula
i n of all bills of less than 5
Mr Cannon said that though the amend
ment was reported by the committee he
believed that It should be stricken out
frr by such action silver would be forced
itito circulation He continued
We pay express charges for sliver tut
we dont do It for pacr We ought not
to send even gold from ibe sssaj oHlces
Gold like ever thing else goes where
hero is a demand for it The whole mat
ter take care of itself
Mr Hill then said that tho striking out
ot the clause would result la an Increased
of silver If you do not strike
out the clause you will pay flOOOOO use

the benefit of the exvire3 companies

The iarly hours of the session in the
House jtsterda were enlivened by an at
tempt on the part of the Democrats to
retaliate upon the Rcpuhilcars for their
flllbusierlng tacti s the di before Im
mediately after the House was called to
order Mr Cannon moved thit it go into
the Committee of the Whole for tho con
sideration of the Sundr Civil bill Ml
Richardson called attention to the absence
of i quorum
In view of the fact tin yesterd ly we
won not allowed 10 pass a bill appropri
ates J800 without i quorum he said I
dont think we should piss one for S0
COOOm without the requisite number of
members for business being present
roll call resulted In -01 icas and J3 nays
and the Sundrj Civil bill wis taken up
point of order was raisul by Mr
Hepburn that tle appropriation for tl e
m scellaneous expenses of the Tlsh Corv
mtssloii diawu so that 10 per cent should
be Riallabe tnterrhangcabl was not In
accordance with tho statute which re
quires that all appropriations shall bo
madu for specific purposes Mr Moodj
answered that the arrangement was justi
fiable because it made an cquitanle distri
bution of tho money between the depart
ments of the Commission possible Mr
Hepburn objected on Hie ground that the
arrangement pat tlo disposal f too much
monej in the heads of the Superintendent
but his objection and the point of order
were overruled

Cnarles A Conant of Boston author
of several economic works was before
the House Committee on Banking es
terday and made an argument in favor of
giving greater flexibility to the pper
currency He believed tho passage of Mr
Loverings bill would be an important
and benefit ml step In that direction
It was of great importance Jr Conant
slid to organize the credu system of tne
country upon a basis of such economy
and eillciency that Americin bankers and
exporters could compete successfully witn
their rivals in foreign markets This
could be done bj putting the standard te
yord question as was proposed in an
other menre reported b the commit
tee and bj permitting banks to ibbue
currency and credit with the greatest
freeaom consistent with safetv B this
means discount rates would be lowered
and manufacturers would Le able to con
duct their business at less cost and lay
their goods down In foreign markets at
lower rates than If the nicaetary system
of the country were organized upon a
clums and ineilicient basis
The difference bttween the rate charge 1
for money other things being equal Mr
Conant pointed out might make the dif
ference between command of a given mar-
let for American products and a complee
surrendeTof that market to the merchants
of other nations operating under a bet
ter organized and more flexible creJIt
svstem Such a handicap upon Ameri an
industry would react upoi the demand
for labor and raes of wages and might
prove a serious detriment to American
labor The benefits of such a measure as
that proposed by Mr Lovering it vas
declared would be especially felt in the
South where banks were widly scatter
ed and the use of other forms of a edit
than liank notes was less general than
In the commerciil cities of the North
east Tho South would gain in financial
Independence by the ability of their local
banks to increase their note issues when
the cotton crop was gathered and dur
ing the entire crop moving season

The Semto Yesterday by a vote of 4
to 2 displaced the Ship Subsidy bill as
the unfinished business and set the
bounty job back for some time The coup
was ciTccted by one of the Republican
leaders Mr Spooncr who called up the
Grout Oleomargarine bill Mr Stewart
called for the eas and naS and only
Messrs Chilton and Vest voted In the
negative Mr Hanna was present but
refused to vote The Oleomargarine bill
was then taken up
Mr Halo asked Mr Proctor In charge
of It In view of the almost unammois
vote by which the bill was taken up to
allow tho Senate to come to a vote upon
it nt once
Tho Senator from Vermont said Mr
Jones of Arkansas may agree to that
but there are other Senators who will
I want to say o the Senator from
Maine said Mr Berry that the almost
unanimous vote to tike up this bill was
not because the Senate was almost unani
mous for It but It was In order to get rid
or cet aside and give a black co to the
SubMdy bill
Not that they love Caesar less Mr
Halo ip oted but that they love Rome
more Laughter
Mr Proctor addressed the Senate on
tho Oleomargarine bill Honors and re
sponsibilities he said sometimes come to
a man not only unsought but unexpected
That was his case today He had not
been able to attend all tho meetings of
the Agricdltural Committee at which the
question had been argued and would have
to leave it to other members of Iho com
mittee to elucidate somo points
He went on to stale what he understood
to ie the materials entering into the man
ufacture of oleomargarine the cost of
manufacture being from 11 1 i cents a
pound for the lowest grade of the finished
product up to IS cents for the highest
grade or an average of 14 cents a pound
The consumption In the United States he
gave as a little over one pound per capita
Tho amount exported was five and a half
million pounds in ISM In some foreign
countries the per capita consumption was
niiieh Hrgcr than In the United States the
consumption in Denmark being three and
a naif pounds
Mr Caffcry enquired whether the oleo
margarine consumed in Denmark was
manufactured there or was imported from
the United Sfates
Mr Proctor -was not able to sa cut
he thought ILwas both
Mr Voot enquired whether the bill was
a revenue measure or a police measure
Mr Proctor replied that on Its face the
bill showed that it was for the collection
of revenue and Incidentally for the tro
tcction of honest producers of butter and
for the safety of the consumer
At the request of Mr Cockrell the bill
was laid aside informally and a bill sot
