Mr. I ogan read from tbo publlo utter ances of President Washington to show that patriotic officer's vlow of tho advan tage to tho country of a sufitclctit forco ot trained soldiers; also from tho public ut terances of President Garfield and other public men to thu came effect. IIo also read from a variety ot reports ot high ofll clals to show that tbo detailed provisions of tbo bill wcro such as had over and over again been recommended by those best In formed on tbe subjects Involved, lie dis claimed any feeling ot personal offense In what senators had said ngolnst tho hill. If what senators had aimed at was that ho should dcclaro himself on some points at which Ihcj had hinted, he (Mr. Logan) would ray that lie was no communist, was for no division of prop erty. Ho believed in eviry man owning what bo had labored for. He did not believe In murder, tho destruction ot propcrtv, or tho Inirnlng of towns; but In saying that, If any man asserted that ho (Mr. Logan) was not tbo friend ot houost labor, that man misconstrued blm, Ho would be clad tn see every laboring mau happv,nud In tbo possession ot a happy homo. If be had the power ho would build fotllflcotlona at Sau l'rauclsco and nliovo and below tlnttlty that would protect Hie Pacific coast, and would niako tho har bors of all our great cities bristle with guns that would frown clown any navy or army tLat should approach our coasts. IIo would have an niniy and a navy that would not bo the laughing stock of Ihe world Mr. Hale agreed heartily with Mr. Login on tbo general propositions suggested, as to the pioprlctv, tbe wisdom, aud the duty of protecting American citizens abroad, nud defending our coasts against Invasion, Hut neither of these propositions, Mr, Holo snld, bad anything what ever to do wllh tho question leforo tho Senate That question was whether wo 6houhl havo 80,000 Insteal of L"i,l(0 cnllslcd men In our army. That question 1 ad becti examined by C'ongioss some cars ago, nnd Congress bad limited tbo strength of tho army to 3.1,000 enlisted men.

Mr. Logan raid It bad been acted on In appropriation bills. x Mr. Hule icuiarkcd that much other legis lation bad been iffictcd bv approprlullon bills. It was, however, nunc the less the luw on that account. Ha (Mr. Hal)) did l ot found his objection to tbo iiropojel In crease on any want ot avnipatliy with thu in my.

Matters reported from com mittees were for free discussion lu tbo Hen- ate, and It often happened that tho recom nittidulloi s of i ummlttees wero not con- lined In by the L'euatc. Mr. Halo referred Incidentally to some remarks made In tho cipiult'g cif the discussion on this bill, which lemniks, he (aid, had been Inter preted, ns the discussion had shown, ns ro lellli (.' to outside Inlliiencoin opposition to the bill. He (Mr. Hule) hail not heard the i c mat I s, and was wry glad that tbo sens tcir fium Illinois (Mr. Logan) had stated frcel) and fronl,)) and Mr llalooctcptoil tie statement as cntlrcl) satisfaction that lu hud no rcfcienci'toniiynutsidolnlliicnco Mr. l.cgan denied Hint bo hud mile any allusion to outside Influences Mr I Icilo mid that when be made lilsnrig Inol motion to strike out section two, he reri heel uu Information from nnvbolv, i liber lu thu Senate ur clirwliere, with ret cm ee tu the bill, nud hid even nnkiiowl lieleo until that moment that tlio bill ion .tuluid a provision far that Increase ritithtrdld bo then know that u slugle senator would sustain 1 is motion. The ineie queltaon of sire ot tho army, however, would never be a matter of con sideration lu the discussion of mi) matter Involving the Mouroo doctrine, or theasser tltu of A mei Icon rights an) where, When Colt.

That had ul vvavs been .ur experience heretofore. Thcro vv ns no doubt, Mr. Hale said, nt thu need of ships.

Laujhtcr Mr. Logan said tho men would bo ot no cfftclhu use till they wero trained In ser vice. Mr. Halo replied that till the guns nnd fortlf cations were built, thu men would get no elTcctlvo training. Mr. Maiidcrson believed ono ought to tlevato tbo condition of our army so that Intelligent American citizens would talto a Hilda In entering lis ranks as private sol diers.

Mr. Teller reiterated his conviction that thcro never was a tlmo lu our history when to little danger was to bo apprehended from Indian troubles as now. It was therefore absolute folly to talLot Inctcasliig tha array on this account. Mr. Hawlt) obtained tho floor to speak on tho army bill, but gave way for amotion by Mr. Cameron that tbo Senate go luto ex ecutive session. Mr. Logan secured an arrangement lij which a vote shall bo taken not later than 3 o'clock tomorrow on Mr. Halo's motion to strlko out tho second section of tho army bill The Scuato then, at 4 45 n. m,, wcut Into cxecutlvo session.
