Question in the Senate
The President Now the Only Obstacle
iu the Way
Sherman Law to Be Repealed 52500000 ito i I
to Bo Coined Monthly Coinage of
Bullion In the Treasury Gold
Kesorvo Increased
WASHINGTON Sept 29 Democratic
repeal senators have practically given up
law be repealed
the idea that the Sherman can
pealed unconditionally and haTe after
numerous conferences decided upon a
compromise which they believe will end
the long fight and secure the passage of a I
biJ t relieve the present situation by the
end of next week
Senator Gorman and other Democratic
repeal senators are actively encaged in ar I
ranging the terms of a compromise and
tonight believe they have succeeded
It involves concessions on both sides
repeal of the purchase clause coinage of
a specified amount 25nOOOn per month
until the total silver coinage is 700000
000 then the coinage of all the bullion in
1 the treasury and the sale of gold bonds tc
Increase the gold reserve to an
amount which is deemed sufficient to
insure the maintenance of gold and silver
money at parity
When the proposition was submitted to
Secretary Carlisle last night he insisted
upon the latter provision to the agree
ment The general understanding to
night is that the silver Republican Sena
tors will agree to the compromise
The only thing in the way of the pro
gramme now seems to be the president
Morgan Says We Should Be Independent
j J of Great Britain
I WASHINGTON Sept 29Senator Cam
eron of Pennsylvania presented a peti
tion from the Philadelphia manufacturers
aSking legislation to retain the protective
tariff and the integrity of silver as a money
metal heretofore sent in these dispatches
He said the signers represented seventy
five millions of capital and a yearly pro
duct of a hundred and fifty milliona
The repeal bill was then taken up
Harris Democrat of Tennessee
spoke against i He declared it practi
cally meant a gold standard as thereafter
silver could only be used as fractional
currency He favored the coinage of all
American silver but hoped Sherman
wouJd join him in rehabilitating the
BlandAllison act and going back to that
amount of coinage if not more
Sherman said he believed the continued
purchase of silver under the BlandAlli
son act or the act of 1890 would
eventually drive gold from circulation
and silver would be the only standard
Free coinage would have the same result
So he favored the abandonment of the
Continuing Harris quoted from
Vontnninf a
speech by Voorhees last February in
which he said he would have voted to
take up the Sherman bill some days prior
to that but for the fact that its passage
would undoubtedly demonetize silver
and leave it supported by not one word
oi legislation Harris in conclusion
said he would accept any reasonable com
Harris continuing said I thought it
an outrage t ask men like myself and
others to absolutely sweep from under the
silver currency every vestige of law That
is not what we meant at Chicago At that
time Voorhees said while he would vote
for the repeal of the Sherman act it must
be in connection with something better
When the Senator from Indiana said
Harris shall have passed the bill as
probably he may he will find himself ut
terly powerless to enact any other law for
the use of silver or repeal the 10 per cent
tax on state bank circulation to increase
the volume of money Most of them who
aid him now want to diminish the volume
of money This is a trap in which I do
not imend t be caught
Morgan of Alabama then addressed
the Senate He began by dipcussing the
probability of securing a treaty with
Great Britain on the silver question
which he said was very remote
International agreement in respect
Ho monetr matters was im
possible of execution and almost
impossible in contemplation a legis
lative sense In this critical period it
would not do to offer snch hopes as a so
lution of the trouble Referring to the
repeal bill Morgan said Why this
haste Congress had better undertake to
secure somethin within the view of
the constitutional power We had better
main declare our independence of Great
Britain and maintain it than undertake
by treaty agreement finess cajolery
flattery and the like to persuade Great
Britain t allow us t legislate for our
peopl in a way the government ought to
legislate for its people
Allison observed tho United States had
four times attempted to secure an inter
national agreement
cYesn said Morgan and the senator
is now back from a recent conference and
it wa5 agreed nothing could be done
After four of these disappointments we
independence We must bo inde
pendent of Great Britain The repealers
know there is no need of haste They
fear the decision of the Supreme Court of
the United States on the case pending be
fore that court No 15049 entitled
a George S Merritt et al vs Charles
Foster secretary treasury the silver
brick case After talking for two hours
Morgan suddenly diverged from a legal
argument that the right of the owner of
silver bullion to have it coined Iran and
without limit still existed and said No
man whatever his powers may be can
exonerate me from tho discharge
of my duty to grant to the people
all their constitutional rights nor
can any man crowd me into silence
fcvhen I choose to speak This is an arena
jjn which I have the honor to be tho am
fr l m bassabor of a sovereign state whoso suf
f frages shall not be taken away from her
without hsr consent and where have i
I have it anywhere in this world the
light to full and free speech The least
man in Alabama the poorest negro in
Alabama is entitled to his constitutional
rights at my hands a much as the presi
dent of the United States He shall have
them if I know how to give them
Inn colloquy between Hawley of Con
necticut and himself as to Cleveland
Morgan said the president seem to repre
sent both parties He certainly repre
sented the Senatorfrom Connecticut who
was following him nor
1 < In one thing said Hawley
< Ons thing and fora short while tem
porary allies under a brief coalition and
for a particular purpose said Morgan
I bitterly Morgan did not conclude his
speech this evening and in replytoa J
question of Voorhees said he would not
go on in the morning I it was consist
ent for him 0 do so he would not say a
word as he did not feel strong enough
It was hard work but he did not feel he
could stand in the Senate and see silver
killed in the way it was going to be killed
without putting in a plea Jor the people

What was the reason The Democratic I
party was confronted with a great danger
Last fall by fusion in some states by
chicanery in others by advocating free
silver here and gold monometallism there
the Democrats had come into power
The president had attempted to carry out
the programme against silver He split
his party in twain Suddenly by a de
cree of a party caucus this bill was
brought in Why To heal tho breach
to rally the whole strength of the party
with the war cry Down with the fed
eral supervision of elections Lacey
laid great stress on the constitution
ality of this law and then began to
speak on the alleged election outrages in
the south bringing on wordy exchange
with Talbert of South Carolina when he
reached that state Lacey getting the best
of the encounter

North Dakota South Dakota and other

General Wheeler was followed by ex
Senator Blair of New Hampshire
Blairs throat was so affected that he was
forced after he had explained his idea of
the immense importance of the question
which involved the falaity and the error
of the pernicious doctrine of states rights
which he supposed was settled by the
war t ask the indulgence of the House
to print his remarks in the Record

upper levels were stoped out in the prog

and pillars of ore to bear the mighty
weight of the floors of ore above
The accident is supposed to be caused
by the giving way of the timbers on the
fifth level allowing those above to fol

the fated men

mine was dry in an hour and forty
minutes Fortyeight men descended
the shaft last night Twenty escaped
and twentyeight perished The bodies
will never be recovered Moat of the
survivors were at work on the bottom
level which had not been stoped out

On his way to join that expedition he
carried official dispatches to Colonel llges

markable that any of its members came

state will doubtless transmit to Congress
some very impressive facts and figures
Oklahoma organized as a territory on
the 22nd day of April 1889 so that it will
havo had a probationary period of about
five years At that time its population
was nearly 62000 At the Congressional
election of 1892 there were cast over 22000
votes which would indicate a consider
able increase in tho number ot in
habitants It is claimed by the statehood
executive cemmittee that the settlement
of the Cherokee Strip has brought the
population up to 275000 and the taxable
wealth of tho territory to 550000000
These are of course outside fiigures but
even allowing a reasonable discount
they largely exceed the number of people
residing in Missouri Kansas Arkansas
and even Texas at the time of their ad
mission and with the prospective in
clusion of the Indian Territory would
bring up the population to a higher point
Union than that of any other territory in the

The Lie Passed at the Liberal
Meeting in Ogden
An Alleged Conspiracy Between the
Liberals and Republicans i
The Adams Rape Case Now In the Hands
of the Jurors Who Are Sleeping
on the Court Room
OGDEN Sept 29 Special Tho
campaign in Ogden has been opened by
the Liberals who at a largely attended j
mass meeting held tonight at the city
hall decided to retain an organization
and place a full city ticket in the field
The meeting was a hummer full of per
sonalities backbiting and recrimina
tions The meeting was a result of a
small gathering of prominent Llbercla
held on Thursday night at which time
an attempt was made to disband the party
but the opposition outvoted the advo
cates of this policy and adjourned the
meeting over till tonight A resolution
introduced early in the session brought
out a heated debate in which a large
number of the leaders of the party took
part and during which the lie was
passed and a fight seemed imminent but
quiet was restored by the chairman
The leader of the advocates of dissolu
tion was Mayor Lundy who argued that
i a division on national party lines was
made the Republican party to which SO
per cent of the Liberals belong would be
victorious at the coming election other I
wise the Democrats would take every
thing in sight His plan was denounced
as traitorous to the Liberal cause
J H Restal member of the city coun
cil offered a set of resolutions declaring
that the Liberal party is still alive and
that it repudiates tha bargain attempted
to be made by Frank J Cannon Mayor
Lundy and others to sell out the Liberal
After a heated debate that part of the
resolutions referring to Cannon
and Lundy and associates was
stricken out and tho resolu
tion were adopted It was also
decided to get into the field at once and
wage a warfare against all political op 1
position This effectually opens the
campaign and as both national
campaign parties
have been resting on their oars in order
see which way the Liberals would jump
conventions will undoubtedly be called at
once The campaign will be short but
full of fire
For some time past negotiations have l
been pending between the Republicans
and Liberals looking to the disbandment
of the latter party but it is said that some 1
of the office seekers among the Liberals 11
were not satisfied and bolted For a while
it looked as though there would be no
Liberal ticket in the field and that the
fight would be on national party lines
The action taken tonight by the party ol J
I airfighters is the sensation of the hour
The Adams rape case was finished this
afternoon and given to the jury about 1
oclock The jury is still out and a dis
agreement seems probable
Judge Miner has adjourned court until
morning and the jurors are making beds
on the floor of the main court room
Dan McDonald a youth of 20 pleaded
guilty of forgery and was sentenced to
one year in the pen He was taken to
Salt Lake tonight
