LONDON Jan 6It appears the French
government has sent to the different Euro

asking them to point out t their govern

Ribot foreign minister and the whole
French cabinet would appear if Bulgaria
should not give satisfaction to the French
government In such case it was pointed
ont the cabinet would be forced to resign
under the reproof that it acted rashly
Russia it seems admitted this view of the I
affair while England and Austria tacitly
agreed Bulgaria must give some sort of

Senator Morrill Speaks Against

JIctalHst 31 ensure Predictions Concerning
Its Operation Unfulfilled
WASHINGTON Jan 6In the Senate a
large number of papers were presented and
referred One was from the chamber of
commerce of Seattle Washn praying
Congress by more liberal appropriations
to enable the war and navy departments to
place the country in a thorough condition
of defence so as to be prepared to maintain L
its national dignity and protect its humb
lest citizen in any part of the world
The VicePresident laid beforo the Sen
transmitting the agreement made by the I
commissioners with the Indians of the Col
vie reservation Washington
Among the bills introduced and referred Lr L
was one granting pensions to soldiers of r
tho Seminole and other Indian wars
Morgan offered a resolution directing the
committee on foreign relations to inquire
into the progress made on the work of the
Nicaragua canal The resolution was laid
on the table Morgan stating that he would
call it up tomorrow
The Senate hill introduced by Stewart to
provide for the
bullion was taken up and Merrill proceeded
to address the Senate Morrill criticized
the speech heretofore made by Stewart on
the same subject and spoke in opposition to
the bill for the free and unlimited coinage
of silver Ho was now and ever in favor
of maintaining both gold and silver in cir
culation and silver to the ex
tremest boundary that it could
maintain on a parity with gold
He had notvoted for the silver act of 1890
for the reason that silver bullion was
neither to be paid for nor paid out in ac
cordance with the safer proposal of Secre
tary Windom and that the silver to be
purchased was fixed as appeared to him
at too magnificent an amount and also
that the full price was to be paid for a
commodity which the government could
neither sell nor part from to any consider
able extent without a financial revolution
and serious loss
Morri went on to say the national bank
notes were rapidly being made to
to give room to silver paper The original
United States notes or greenbacks were
likely to be the next sacrifice demanded in i
order to give the whole field to silver paper
No expedients have been untried and no
cost withheld to push or carry silver dol
lars into circulation but it was demon
strated no more than about 000000 over
four hundred million coined could bo 1
coaxed or kicked outside tho treasury
The weight was objected to as too heavy
and the value too light In the treasury
today there is over
and more coming in monthly when and
where was this silver deluge to end 1 In
ten years more under existing statutes
the government might have locked up in
its subterranean vaults silver to the aggre
gate amount of perhaps more than S1OJO
000000 for all of which its obligations
payable in coin would be outstanding and
by free coinage No silver certificates or
treasury notes issued for silver bullion had
boeen presented for payment in silver but
they were paid in gold when so demanded
How long they could be thus kept on a
parity with gold was already a matter of
public and profound concern and largely
dependent upon the honest and proper in
terpretation of the law and the coinage and
skill of the secretary of the treasury
Whenever the gold of the treasury should
vanish these certificates and notes could
then be paid only in silver dollars and
those as money were known to be not
worth their face value As security for
the silver certificates or treasury notes
which were to circulate at par with gold
they were notoriously inadequate as 412 >
rains of silver ninetenths fine would
fetch no more than i cents It would be
hardly less safe and certainly equally hon
est to base such certificates and notes and
circulate them as good money
or upon wheat or tobacco purchased and
accumulated in like manner at 33 per cent
above the market value as to base such of
the circulation upon the socalled standard
silver dollars
Under free
coinage whatever advantage
from the unlimited free coinage of silver
might accrue to the corporate owners of
silver mines when gold advanced to a
premium would be brief and not perma
nent as then no secretary of tho
would bo willing to sell United States
bonds in order to obtain gold to keep any
paper currency paid out for
silver on a
parity with gold These corporations
therefore at no remote period would have
to plague the inventors and find the sil
ver certificates or treasury notes received
for silver bullion when unsupported by
gold of no greater value than that of the
silver contained in the free coined silver
dollar siver
The experiment which was now being
made to have the
government purchase
compulsion a fixed monthly amount of silver
ver had ho feared
complicated and more
or less
relative to silver and perhaps contributed
to the degradation of its value by largely
restricting the demand to one country
alone and by the practical exclusion of
any popular demand from any other The
menace of unlimited coinage with the I
swelling accumulations of coined and un
coined silver in the treasury which might
in some financial contingency be thrust
upon any or all other markets not only
tended to perpetuate its present uncer
tainty of value but might further tend to
sink it to a lower depth Certainly unlim
ited coinage would indefinitely postpone all
hope of an international compact The al
preciation of silver had been accelerated
not only by its greatly increased abun
dance but also by Its diminished use as
money by the leading commercial nations
The silver miners had natons
in case of the free coinage of silver and
silver as standard money must for all the
world stand or fall upon its intrinsic mer
its and not unon the merits of tha ntnn
whence itoame rw
The silver propagandists declared they
only sought to have silver placed on an
equality with gold knowing as they did
that their inequality had been displayed
from age to ago In conclusion Morrill
said I attempted to demonstrate Morri
I preciation of silver was both so great and
universal that unlimited coinage could not
be maintained on the present standard
with gold but would suddenly wreck tho
country by a silver revolution that un
limited coinage would interdict all inter
national silver compacts that there was
no scarcity of money in circulation
that the silver circuiaton
I be equivalent to aUaorizontal reduction of
the tariff of 35 per cent if not more and
an equal reduction of all pensions that the
par ties to first profit by free coinage would
be incorporate owners of silver mines
only and the parties to finally suffer the
re2t losses by it would be the great mass
of our people into whose hands the de
reciated coin and treasury notes would
nally pass We have paid off more than
ireefourtns of our great debt in gold
wh en our resources were far less than
now and I am unwilling to forfeit our
roll earned reputation and lose public con
fide nce and all the ancestral prestige of our
history by paying the sorry remnant of
this debt in a legal tender of much less
At the close of Merrills speech which
coupled about an hour and a half in its do
live ry Teller took the floor and called attention
tea tion to the fact that the Senator from
Vermont as well as the President of the
United States in his annual message
reated the silver bill of July 1 1S90 as the
work of the bimetallists in Con ress Ho
Teller denied that assertion The bill ho
aid was not the work or product of the
committee which had been known to bo for
many years deadly hostile to bimetalism
He did not intend to quarrel with the act
of July 11S90 but he did intend to show it
was not a silver act It was a money act
das such it received the approval of 10S
Se nators wLo had voted for free coinage
an d received the condemnation of 25 Sen
tors who voted for free coinage
After quoting a sentence from the Presi
dents message to the effect that the bill L
had been expected to bring the price of sit
er up to 129 per ounce
for the ground of that statement and I
asserting only one Senator alluding to
Jones of Nevada had intimated the act of
S90 would bring silver up to par On the
other hand more than twenty Senators
asserted it would not bring silver to par
I disaster came as it would come if that
olicy was persisted in it would have to
be laid at the door of the men who for nf
teen years steadily resisted the general
ublic demand for the use of silver on
equal terms with gold But there was an
other proposition coming from the execu
ive What was itI It was that the
United States should accumulate all the
gold of the world and the money centers
of Europe would say the United States
having got all the gold they would join tho
United States in the work of using silver
oming as it did from the executive of the
natipr he Teller was bound to speak of
it with respect whatever he might think or
feel How was the United States to a cu I
mulate the gold of the world We even
when this country had
and was enjoying great prosperity gold
left the country at the rate of million dol 1
lars a day The United States was tho
debtor nation owing to Europe more than
2000000000 How was the United State
to get Europe unload her coffers and send
gold here Teller referred to the fact o If
the President having sent a New York
banker Seligman to Berlin in connection
with the silver qupstion and said the Pres t
ident had not selected for that trip a prominent
nent b silver man He Teller could name
twenty men in public life who could have
g one to Europe and made
but no such report would be got from
bankers or monometollists He entered a
proest against the declaration of the
executive and the Senator from Vermont
that the silver men were responsible fi or
th e legislation of 1S90 Every American
statesman ought to direct his attention in
Teller said to see how the two metals l
could be tied together so they would never
be parted That could not be done by hav
in g silver put down to 50 cents an ounce
Nor could it be done by accumulating gold
from Europe I could only be done by
taking a heroic step and passing a free
coinage bill in the hope it would
or else lead to an international agreement
Dolph sent to the clerks desk and had
read an extract from the speech of Stewart
to the effect that the purchase by the gov
ernment of 4500000 ounces of silver per
month would use all the silver produced in
the United States and put up the price of
silver to par Stewart admitted this proph
ecy had failed but pleaded that the condi
tions had been changed and it had been
proven nothing would do but free coinage
No action was taken on the bH and after
a short executive session the Senate out of
respect for the memory of tho late Repre
sentative Gamble adjourned

cussed at length the question of referring
the Senate joint resolution authorizing the
secretary of the navy to transport contri

that the United States extend its aid to the
Russian sufferers A motion to refer it to
the committee on appropriations was with
drawn and another to refer it to the naval
committee defeated The question then
recurred on the motion to proceed to imme

was agreed to and the resolution was con

resolution was indefinitely postponed

French Alarm Over British Aggression In
PARIS Jan 6Tho troubles at present
existing in the Tangier district of Morocco
and the despatching by the British govern
ment of two war ships to protect British
interests in Tangier have awakened a
feeling in some French quarters that
England has the intention of adding to her
territory by forcible acquisition part of the
Sultan of Moroccos dominions This
feeling is not in any degree allayed by re
ports from Tangier which state the
British minister has warned the governor
i he cannot guarantee the safety of the
city against rebel tribes sailors will be i
landed from the British war ships This
is taken by the alarmists to mean aggres

Siecle today demands that the government
dispatch the entire French Mediterranean
squadron to Tangier to prevent the British
from carrying out any designs of an aggres
sive character they may have formed I
The Matin in an article on the same sub

We cannot completely ignore and whistle
down the events of the past eighteen
months when considering Mormonism and

Want to Cross Swords With Him Again I
COLUMBUS Ohio Jan 6The Republicans
cans of Ohio have spoken and John Sher
man is to succeed himself in the United
States Senate Foraker is defeated but
even defeat his leadership excites tho ad
miration of the opponents and ho is to
night more than over the
who have given him such noble allegiance
For three days thero has boon but one
result staring these hardy enthusiasts in
the face the ultimate election of Sherman
But even tho inevitable was unable to
dampen their enthusiasm and they found
glory in going down to defeat with their
leader and attesting a devotion which none
but the fiery Foraker could havo Inspired
in the young Republicans of Ohio
With the expiration of thcsenatorial
term to which Sherman is to be elected he
will have completed fortyfour years of
continuous public service I will be
in tho history of American statesmanship
for every year will have been spent in
Washington and in the service of the
federal government John Sherman is
sixtynine years old He was elected
to Congress in 1S54 at the time
of the KansasNebraska troubles and tme was I
a member of the congressional committee
on the question of the extension of slavery
In 1854 he wrote the famous antislavery
report which thrilled the nation and made
him one of the prominent leaders of the
day How well ho has maintained his
prominence in a service of six years in the
lower house four years in the cabinet as
secretary of the treasury and an aggre

the pages of American history bear record I
When the joint caucus convened by ac
clamation Speaker Layiin was elected
chairman He made a felicitous speech
abounding in
Every Republican was present except
Representative Jackson After some de
bate a motion was adopted directing the
sergeantatarms to clear the galleries The
vastaudience hissed this action roundly
and it was only after great trouble tho
sergeant performed tho task The first
division of sentiment took place ontho reso I
lution of the
Foraker men for a
secret ballot Immediately the
Sherman forces moved a substi I
tute providing an open ballot A
lively l debate followed Representative
Griffin of the Foraker forcss insisted a i
secret ballot was necessary in order to
protect men from intimidation and
coercion Tho only argument against a
secret ballot said he is the desire that
he who dares vote as his conscience
and convictions dictate may bo exposed to
bulldozers Applause
is one of the greatest prerogatives of a
free public and that right is rigidly
presented at the polls by every law upon
the statuo books
Representative Taylor warned the caucus
it was by secret ballot Democrats a few
years ago nominated Coal Oil Payne for
United States Senator and irretrievably
wrecked their party and doomed them
selves to private life ApplauseJ
Representative McGrews argument was
little short of sensational
said he Twice has notice been served I
upon us that the calamity of private life i
may be our portion if we fail to respond to I
that side which has been the greatest
strength and threats It wont do to talk
about looking people in the face We say r i
to them let somebody else look somebody
In the face Sensation We havo nothing
to hide but demand that men be protected I
against coercion We object too that I
anyone in a powerful position in the nation
shall cast his shadow upon this assembly to
hover over men here and make them do
something in accordance with the dictates
of their own conscience Applause
After hour of impassioned debate a sub
stitute providing for an open ballot was
adopted by a vote of 47 to 44 three mem
