Rives His Views Upon the Pend

t 1 Condemned Gold and Silver Certificates
m Being Preferable Tlie Importance
of an International Ratio
Special t TiE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
PUtS June 20By cable to N Y
World Manton Marble in a long letter
toys The Democratic Representatives
who hesitated t vote for free coinage a
impracticable in the face of an executive
Veto may well reconsider their position
jow that free coinage so clearly hangs
upon Democratic votes chiefly both in the
Senate and in the House Any silver pur
chase bill complicates the silver problem
Without solving it any free coinage bill
ihould be male as perfect as possible so
that the President the more easily may
tbstain from a veto which it would be
bsurd to anticipate and in order the more I
> urcly to defeat his party at the coming
Elections if a veto i interposed Some
features are still retained in the silver bill
that excuse even justify an executive
Veto others will paralyze an eastern
Democratic effort to override a veto For ex
icinlc the new fangled treasury notes have
Opi better warrant of legality than a
7 > uprome court decision reversing a rightful
flccision therefore righteously reversible
But such notes even if lawful are inferior
to silver certificates and worse than a need
less sabstitute Our silver and gold cer
tificates are paper currency so admirable
that they need no change Free bimetallic
Coinage without other help will perfect
that paper currency of ours making it un
Soubtedly the best in the world
I Another defect in the silver bill invites
t p veto Why should Congress cast away
f Into foreign hands that large profit inci
I tent to rccoinage which is itself incident
t free metallic coinage at one ratio on both
ides of the Atlantici Let it be granted
hat there will be free bimetallic coinage
by the great American republic at
Either ratio and it will at once con
join 1 again in renewed efficiency
two now almost adverse ratios and the
rtiionometallists of the world will create
gain their bimetallic and will
bimetlc par wi perma
J ocntly give dominance to that adopted
ratio between the two monitary metals in
domestic trade and foreign exchange
around the globe from China to Peru Ex
isting gold monometallic coinage can pro
ceed unchanged the silver monometallic
coinage can proceed unchanged Any re
forming of the lost link by free metallic
coinage at whatever ratio will suffice them
t our free bimetallic coinage does not
spread prevail and become international
It i apparent that our gold may be prof er
red t our silver as foreign remittance
The New York Democrats can defend no
such blundering toward silver monometal
lism Adherence t oar eccentric ratio will
absolutely inhibit now and will certainly
postpone if not finally prevent the re
sumption of free bimetallic coinage by
X rnnce at any ratio Our republic is great
but two republics are greater
Any silver legislation should adopt a
coinage ratio of 1 to l5 > midway between
pur earliest error of 1V2 1 to 15 and our
latest error of 134 1 to 1 thus conform
ing to the ratio of all other great nations by
its metallic coinage That rni retains the
present gold dollar and reiuirts a silver
dollar of 40J grains The let l1ge either
of silver in the United States or of gold
to I Europe being the only possible way to
fle together upon a common ratio of
> fyca metallic coinage we who take its
Visks should Keep and not cast away to
1oresgn holders of gold coin the profit incidental
dental t recoinage With the ulti 1
mate cooperation of France that I
of every other foreign bimclalic
coining power would thereby be assured
The dreaded silver inundation would be
visibly precluded when free bimetallic
coinage became international and recog
4wcl by the United States at a ratio thus
Jt l s universal would insure its interna
tioaahty The dreaded drain of gold would
be visibly precluded when silver became
equally acceptable and frequently prefer
nbk for remittance under one unvarying
bi metallic par The slow and steady with
drawal of greenbacks would not only ful
fill the nations pledge but would also
transform all our paper currency into one
of the best kind and in due time release to
private ownership all our immense treas

His Highhaniled Course on the
Silver Bill
He Is Relying on the Eastern Democrats to
Help Him They Hold tho Key to
The Situation
WASHINGTON D C June 20rSpecial
telegram to TIE HERALD The contest
between the friends and opponents of free
silver was continued in the House today
but with no more decisive result than fol
lowed the long and acrimonious discussion
of yesterday The situation is full of po
litical and economic nnomolies Certain of
the eastern Democrats are wholly out of
sympathy with the majority their party
while certain of tho western Republicans
differ quito as widclv from the
majority of their party in the pre
liminary skirmishing During the
past two days however tne party
lines have been rapidly drawn and judg
ing from the votes cast one would imag
ine the situation to be only a difference of
politics without any economic consideration
tion being involved The Democrats find
in the present case an opportunity to em
barrass and metaphorically set upon Speak I
er Reed and this accounts for the unan
imity with which the two opposing silver
wings of the party get together while on
the other hand they desire to sustain the
speaker From these results the animat I
ing purpose which cements tho equally di
vergent extremes of the Republican
can party The speaker meanwhile pro
poses to prolong the agony if
possible until he can get all his absentees
back to the House again before allowing
anything looking to a test vote to be
The discussion today grew out ofa reso
lution introduced by Mr Bland of Mis
souri directing that the original House
bill with the amendments added by the
Senate on Tuesday last be taken from the
speakers table and the amendments con
curred it A point of order was made that
the resolution could not be considered in
asmuch as Friday of each week is known
in legislative parlance as private bill
day and further that the bill was not on
the speakers table but that it was in the
committee on coinage weights and meas
ures where It was referred under the rules
on Wednesday last During the debate
the Democrats repeatedly taunted their op
ponents with cowardice in refusing to test
the relative strength of tho two parties on
a motion to concur in the Senate amend
ments and they cheered t tho echo the ut
terances of Representative Morrow a California
foria free coinage Republicanin attack
which he made upon the speakers action
in referring the bill without first consulting
the wishes of the House Under the leader
ship of Mr Buttcrworth of Ohio who
has found an ample field for the display of
his splendid debating qualities during the
past two days the Republicans cleverly
evaded a direct vote on the main proposi
tion and an adjournment was reached with
out material change in the situation The
fight will be renewed tomorrow upon re
assembling and the belief tonight is that
several days will elapse before the subject
may bo even temporarily disposed of I
Speaker Reed had chosen to act upon the
suggestion made to him by Mr Pa son
one of the free coinage Repre
sentatives from Illinois a settle
ment of the silver
siver controversy would
speedily reached Payson proposed that
the speaker should recognize him to move
that the pending bill and amendments
should be recommitted to the committee on
coinage weights and measures with in
structions to report a substitute making
the purchase of 4500000 ounces monthly
dominating the bullion redemption feature
and making the notes a legal tender Such
a motion Mr Payson said would be
carried by a large majority Mr Reed
however declined to consider the propo
sition intimating that he would ultimately
mately find a more satisfactory
way out of his embarrassment not
witstanding Mr Paysons denial to the
contrary The New York New Jersey
and Massachusets Democrats hold the key
to the situation I ever the opportunity
occurs with their free coinage friends
they can with the aid of a dozen or more
extreme silver Republicans send the Pres
ident a free coinage bill which he will un
doubtedly veto and which would be mani
festly a serious injury to the party perhaps
in the west and northwest On the other
hand their sympathies are with the op
ponents of free coinage and the expecta
tion is that they will so vote notwith
standing the probable political advantages
which would follow from adopting the
other course Speaker Reed I know is
counting upon their support and by its aid
ho hopes to defeat all legislation unsatis
factory to himself and the element of the
party he represents
In the House
WASHINGTON June 20Yesterdays con
test was renewed The speaker announced
the pending question to be tho ordering of
the previous question on tho motion made
by Mills of Texas to approve the journal
Wednesday as amended by tho resolu
tion of yesterday The previous question
was ordered yeas 120 nays 122
McKinley changed his vote to the affirma
tive and moved a reconsideration
Mills moved t table tho motion to recon
sider Carried yeas 131 nays 129 The
question recurred on approving the journal
of Wednesdays proceedings as amended
The motion as amended was agreed to
yeas 132 nays 130 The clerk then pro
ceeded to read the journal of yesterdays
proceedings The journal was read and
ttewart of Vermont presented the con
ference report on the antitrust bill
Bland of Missouri raised the question of
consideration to offer a resolution that the
House bill directing the purchase of silver
bullion and the issue of treasury notes with
the Senate amendments bo taken from the
speakers table and the Senate amendments
concurred in The House determined yeas
144 nays 102 to consider the conference
report After a short debate the report
was adopted yeas 243 nays 0 Bland
then offered a resolution to take up the sil
ver bill
McKinley made the point of order that
the motion was not privileged
Conger of Iowa added a further point
amidst sarcastic Democratic laughter that
the bill was not on the speaKcrs table but
in thhands of the toinage committee
Bland held the bill was on the speakers
table A long discussion followed as to
whether the Senate amendment t the bill
was a new matter and such a would re
quire consideration in committee ot the
Conger of Iowa said that notwithstand
ing the action of the House in correcting
the journal the bill had been referred to the
commute on coinage and the chairman of
that committee had actual possession of It
Crisp of Georgia said that was no evi
dence of any reference the journal did not
show it
Morrow of California said the action of
the House yesterday was exceedingly sig
nificant of its disposition The fact was
there was no reference at all tho speaker
had no authority to refer tho bill His ac
tion was not voidable but void Thu fact
was the bill was upon the speakers table
The mere physical fact that tho gentleman
from Iowa Conger or his clcrkhad actual
possession of the bill made no difference In
its parliamentary position
Buttcrworth denied that the House by
adopting Mills resolution declared the bill
had not been referred
Henderson of Iowa asked if Morrow
would contend i the House being under
Democcrathnanagement for the time being
should burn up the record of the passage
of the Senate bill the bill would full
Morrow insisted there was a material
difference between the fact and this sup
Buttcrwdrth declared that there were
not twentyfive inca under the dome of the
capjtol who believed the bill incorrectly re
plause ferred upon their oath Repu6llcan ap
Morrow replied that the majority of the
House declared otherwise
Williams of Illinois said yesterday that
while the motion to reconsider was pend
ing and the resolution had been adopted
the chairman of the committee on coinage
walked up to the speakers desk took up a
bill that ho Williams believed was the
silver bill and handed it over to the clerk
of the committee on coinage This looked
like a conspiracy to obtain physical posses
sion of the bil
Couger of Ipjva chairman of the com
mittee on coinace said the bill was de
livered to his clerk before 11 oclock
1 ocock yes
terday morning During tho afternoon
upon the request of thejournal clerk it
had been put in his possession for a short
time in order to make some clerical en
dorsements but he Couger had again
taken it back to the committee clerk
McCreary maintained that under the con
stitution the bill never had been properly
in charge of the committee on coinage The
constitution required the House to keep the
journal until that journal was approved
and it was not proper to send the bill any
where The entry in the journal was void
He held the bill was on the speakers table
and should be placed before the House for
action After further discussion by Bland
the speaker and others Bland modified the
language of his resolution to direct that the
speaker under rule 241 lay matters on his
table including the silver bill before the
House for action
The speaker said perhaps he could sim
plify the matter and suggested to Bland
that he understood his wish to be simply
to Jet at this matter when it would natur
ally come up supposing it was upon the
speakers table not passing upon the mat
ter at this time What the chair proposed
to do was that when the bill or its hiatus
or whatever it might be was reached it
should brought before the House but the
gentlemen did not seem to consider that
this was private bill day and that private
bills alone were in order
Bland asked whether the bill would be
laid before the House tomorrow morning
The speaker declined to answer that ques
tion until thepropeitime
McComas demanded gtho regular order
Tho speaker saul the regular denvas a
private bill which he passed to the reading
Springer asked to know when the chair
might be expected to decide whore the bill
wasThe Speaker Whenever the bill would
be in order providing the views of the
other side were correct about which the
chair presents no opinion because he d s
not thmkit is a proper time
As Bland and Springer finallyinsisted on
specific ruling the speaker finally ruled
that Blnnds resolution to proceed to the
consideration of the silver bill was not in I
order under tie rules
Bland appealed McKinley moved to
lay the appeal on the table The yeas and
nays were ordered pending which Crisp
moved that the House adjourn The motion
was defeated but the hour of 5 arrived
and the House under the rule took a re
cess the evenings session to be for pen
sion business No business was transacted
at the evening session however

Hon Bill
WASHINGTON June 2D President Har
rison to day returned to the House with
out approval the bill to authorize the board
of supervisors of Moricopa county Ari
zona to issue oounty bonds at the rate of
1000 per mile in view of the construction
of 1 certain railroad He says The bill
seems to have passed the House under a
misapprehension of its true scope and ef
fect In the report of the committee on
territories it is said that by the terms of
the bill the county reserves the bonds in
payment of the money proposed to be ad
vanced In fact the bill did not provide
for the loan to bo secured by bonds but lor
a subscription of stock How far this mis
take may have affected tho passage
of the bill of course canuot to
known The bill does not
mit tho question of granting aid
to a vote of tne people of the county or con
fer direct authority upon the supervisors
to issue bonds It ia said however in
April 1SS9 an election was held to obtain
the views of the people upon the question
It does not appear from any paper sub
mitted to the committee who tho managers
of the socalled election were what notice
if any was given what qualifications on
the part of voters were insisted upon i
any or in what form the question was pre
sented There was no law providing for
this election the thing was wholly ivol
untary The election of course was under
the management of those who favored the
subsidy and was conducted without any
legal restraint as to voting or certification
1 have asked for a statement of the vote
by precincts and have been given what
niirnorts to be the vote at twelve points
The total affirmative vote given
was 1795 and the negative vote
134 but of the affirmative vote
1543 were at Phoenix and 183 at a town
very near Phoenix I there were no otner
objections to the bill I should deem this
alone sufficient that no provision is made
for submitting to a vote of the people at an
election after due notice and under the
sanction of law the question whether this I
subscription shall be made The condition
of things in the county of Yavapai lying
immediately north of Maricopa and through
which this road is also to run while not
directly affected by this legislation is very
instructive in this connection by an act of
the legislature of Arizona passed the year
before last
But again the bill proposes to suspend
for this case the provisions of the act of
July 30 1866 forbidding municipal corpor
ations subscribing to the stock or loaning
their credit to other corporations Also
forbidding corporation creating a debt in
excess of 4 per cent of the taxable prop
erty at the last assessment This law was
intended to give the people of the territor
ies that protection against oppressive
municipal debts which was secured to the
people of most of most of the states by con
stitutional limitations The wisdom of this
legislation was not contested by the friends
of the bill but they claim the circum
stances are so peculiar as to Justify
the exception I do not think sOnly
Only a belief that the limit is inflexible
will promote care and economy in adminis
tration Maricopa county is one of creat
extent and this great area is to be taxed to
construct a road which can in the nature
of things be of advantage to but a fraction
of it There is no unity or advantage It
may very well be that a section of these
lauds along the line of the road especially
town lots in Phoenix would have added
a value much greater than the increase
burden imposed But it is equally
clear that much property in the county
will receive no appreciable benefits The
existing bonded indebtedness of Maricopa
county is 272000 the assessment about
five hundred thousand dollars and the
population estimate about twelve thousand
I will be seen that the bonded debt to say
nothing of the floating debt which is said
to be small is already largely in excess of
the legal limit and it is proposed to in
crease it by a subscription that will cer
tainly involve 200000 and probably 250
000 I the bill becomes law the bonded in
debtedness will very closely approximate
10 per cent of the assessed valuation the
pruperty of the county
By the act of Congress to which
I have referred Yavapai county was
authorized to subscribe 4COO per mile to
this line of road The total length of road
in this county was 147 miles and seventy
four to Prescott had been constructed
The government of the territory
states the debt of Yavapai county at
753000 and the assessment between six
ahd seven hundred thousand There are
seventythree miles of road yet to be built
from Prescot to the south line of the
county for which Yavapie county must
make a further issue of bonds of 292000
making a county debt of 855000 or about
