"I voted against the taking up of this
bill, as I shall vote against the bill, If
my judgment dictates that I should, and
I shall remain in the republican partv,
in spite of the suggestion of the senator
from Vermont. It was known when the
bill was introduced in the house of
resentatives that it could not pass the
senate unless it had a democratic or pop
ular support. It was said publicly that
it was not expected to passjt; it was said
publicly that it was for the purpose of
political gein and private advantage.
"It is a play, Mr. President, which is
degrading to the American senate and
degrading to any member of the party
to which I claim to belong who shall
take part in it."
Mr. Morrill—I have read

the fact that there are eighty-nine

whether he was against the bill, has
been read out of the republican party by

At the proper time I am prepared to

SILVER SENATORS ARE FIRM

Their Votes Cast Against the
Tariff Motion.
Henson for Their Action—Statements
by Messrs. Cannon and tihoap —
Brown Votes for the Hotlon, and
Telle Why He Old Bo-Bill to Pre
vent Further Band laoneo.
Senator Cannon, when asked this
evening the grounds for his/rote, in
view of his understood attitude upon
the vote of February 13th, said: "When
the proposition to take up the tnriff bill
was before the Senate on the 13th,
inst. at that particular hour pending in
the House a bill which had passed the
Senhte by the aid of the Utah votes, for
the free and unlimited coinage of silver.
As this, the first commercial and indus
trial question of the age, had been set
tled so far as the Senate was concerned,
I stood for taking up the tariff bill. But
oh the following day the measure for
free and unlimited coinage of silver was
overwhelmingly defeated in the House,
thereby completely changing the situa
tion. I was elected to work for bimetal
ism and protection. I do not believe
that a tariff will be effective except as
an accompaniment to free coinage, ao
long as we are threatened with the
Asiatic peril, and while I was ready to
vote for tariff on the 13th inst., after
voting for bimetalism, and while bimet
allsm was still as much of a possibility
as this Dingley bill, I am not ready to
help protection to march to power over
ftjft grave of slaughtered silver. If the
jBpublican party sets its face against
■ftietalism, it will leave |the ground on
Tvlifich protection is based."
"What effect will this have on the
flic rest?"
■Proposed measure will be worse
KKess to the wool-growers of
PnMfey will see when the expos
es insidious discriminations shall
be made in the senate, on Senator Car
ter's resolution to recommit the bill to
the eommittee on finance."
This position of Senator Cannon was
endorsed by others of the free coin
age republicans who voted with him, on
the ground that, bi-metalism having
been killed since Febrnary 13th, he
quite consistent in voting against con
sideration of an insufficient protection

Washington, Feb. 25.—Miss Elizabeth
Flagler, daughter of Gen. Flagler, chief
of ordinance, U. ,S. A., who last spring
shot a colored boy named Green, plead
ed guilty to involuntary manslaughter
to day and was sentenced to three hours
in jail and to pay a tine of $500.
The proceedings were the result of an
agreemeni between District Attorney
Birney and Miss Flaglers'Iawyer's. An
effort was made to keep the trial Iront
the knowledge of the public,
that purpose Judge Cox called court half
an hour before the usual time.
The District Attorney said this
one of those unfortunate accidents
which does not call fur anything but the
lightest penalty in the power of the
court, and Judge Gov declared the sen
tence without making any comments.
Miss Flagler was driven to the jail in
her father's carriage, and
by the warden with great courtesy. She
passed the three hour, in the matron's
receiving room In the company of Gen.
Flagler and an aunt Mrs. Winthrop, and
was then driven to her home.

"No liberal wishes to pick à quarrel

the Daily News continues.
It is impossible that the house of

Mitchell, S. D., Feb. 24.—The entire
•utfit of the Mitchell Mail, paper, presses,
type, etc., was taken into the street this
morning and publicly burned by an
orderly and well-behaved body of busi
ness men. Thi editor of the paper,
Robert McBride, has for a long time
been attacking various public institu
tions and prominent people, notably the
late John D. Lawler, president of the
First National bank. Several years ago
McBride married Mr. Lawler's sister-in
law, the wealthy daughter of General
Sturgis, U. S. A. After a few years
Mr6. McBride secured a divorce, and Mc
Bride then began his attacks upon the
business and personal character of Mri
Lawler. jm
