"TflE GRIP OF '96" i , BUTLER>S ANTI-BOND BILL CHAR ACTERIZED AS AN ATTEMP" 1 TO PERPETRATE IT. MEASURE SCORED BY HILL BOND ATTITUDE OF THE ADMIN ISTRATION DEFENDED BY SEN VTOR SHERMAN. INFAMY OF ACTCAL REPUDIATION. It Attaches, Said Hill, to This Meas ure, Which Dwarfs Alleged ''Crime of J73." WASHINGTON, May 22.—The bill to pro hibit the issue of bonds Is now before the senate with the prospect of a final vote Mon day. The obstruction to the measure was withdrawn today, and by the decisive vote of 34 to 20 the senate adopted the motion of Mr. Butler, author of the bill, to proceed with it. The debate on the measure proceed ed throughout the day and was at times very animated. Mr. Hill attacked the bill as a barefaced attempt at repudiation by an Indirect cutting off of the only means exist ing for a redemption of greenbacks. Mr. ! Sherman, Mr. Gray, Mr. Hawley and Mr. j Lodne spoke in opposition to the bill, and • .Mr. Mills, Texas; Mr. Butler, Mr. Allen, Mr. Stewart and) Mr.Clarke for it- The tariff ques tion came in for incidental consideration,and Senators Sherman, George and Gray ex pressed the view that it would be a disgrace if congress adjournd without enacting a law to increase the revenues. When Mr. Bu(,ler asked for a vote on the bond bill, on Monday, Mr. Hill, from whom the chief opi.osition was expected, gave his assent. The chaplain's prayer had hardly closed when Mr. Butler renewed his motion to take up the bill prohibiting the issue of interest bearing bonds. The motion was carried as follows: Yeas: Republicans, Brown, Dubois, Hans brough, Mitchell (Or.), Perkins, Pettigrew, Pritchard, Shoup, Teller, Thurston, Warren and Wilson, 12; Democrats, Bacon, Bate, Ber ry .Blackburn, Chilton, Cockrell, Daniel, George, Harris, Jones (Ark.), Martin, Mills, Pasco, Pugh, Turpie, Vest and White, 17; Populists, Allen, Butler, Kyle, Peffer, Stewart, 5. Total, 34. Nays: Republicans, Allison, Baker, Bur roughs, Chandler, Davis, Frye, Gallinger, Hale, Hawley, Mcßride, McMillan, Morrill, Nelson, Sherman and Wetmore, 15; Dem ocrats, Caffery, Gray, Hill, Lindsay, Vilas, 5. Total, 20. Mr. Hill began his speech in opposition. He spoke calmly first, gradually warming up in emphasis and feeling. "The alleged crime of '73 will be as nothing," said Mr. Hill, "to the crime which will be perpetrated if this bill passes and becomes a law. It is a bold proposition to repeal the resumption act, to repeal the only law which exists for the re demption of the paper currency of the coun try. By declaring that for no purpose what ever shall money be raised on bonds, this measure is in effect a repeal of the act of '76. It is a startling proposition. It will not solve the silver question. It will simply put in peril the finances of the country. "This is plain, bold, open repudiation," ex claimed Mr. Hill, his words ringing through the chamber. "Repudiation, the dishonor of your paper money and the dishonor of your country is what this measure means. The crime of '73 pales into insignificance beside this contemplated crime. This measure takes the government by the throat; it holds up th» treasury." Mr. George (Dem., Miss.) began asking questions at tills point and a discussion of exceptional interest was precipitated. Mr. George asked why It was not best to put aside all partisanship, both sides coming to gether to aid the treasury. "Instead of sit ting here quarreling," said Mr. George, "why did not the senators formulate a proper relief measure?" Mr. Sherman was quickly on his feet. "I say In all seriousness," he said, "that if this congress adjourns without giving the treasury relief it will be an outrage and a shame. It will be a disgrace, falling in a large part on the senate. We are going on like a spendthrift squandering his fortune. The senate refuses to give the proper power for relief. This measure (the bond prohibition) is the act of a bankrupt and of a dishonest bankrupt. Than God, it cannot pass, for we all know this is merely a moot debate." Mr. Gray (Dem., Del.) followed. "I agree with the Ohio senator that a crisis in the history of the country and the history of the senate is at hand," he said. "I agree that an adjournment without a measure of relief would be an outrage and a shame. And I say to the senator if his committee will pro pose a measure to increase the revenue—a measure truly non-partisan and solely to raise revenue—that he will find support on this side of the chamber." Mr. George now came forward with a proposition which attracted marked atten tion. He said he would pledge his one vote to the Republican senators if they would got together and frame a proper relief meas ure. He would accept in such a measure a tax on beer, a revenue tax on wool, lumber, tea, coffee, an increase on tobacco, cigars and cigarettes, and a fair revenue duty on any agricultural products imported from Can ada to the United States. Mr. Hill, resuming his speech, said a non partisan revenue measure was an impossi bility. Mr. Hill was followed by Mr. Baker (Rep., Kan.). He said the passage of the bill would foreshadow panic, repudiation and revolution. It would be the great est crime of the nineteeth century. At 2 o'clock the chair laid the regular or der of business before the body, but the senate, by a vote of 49 to 27, decided to con tinue the consideration of the bond bill. Mr. Hawley (Rep., Conn.), in a sbert but impassioned exhortation, scored the pending measure. "If this bill is passed," he de clared, "it will be one of the foulest—the foulest blot and the only one—in the his tory of this honorable body. This is repudia tion. This is bankruptcy; this is anarchy and infamy." Mr. Mills (Dem., Tex.) supported the bill. He ridiculed the idea of repudiation. If more revenue was requielte, then this con gress would give in, and if it did not, thea the next would. The people would insist on having sufficient revenue for the govera ment. Mr. Sherman said he felt sure the bill would fall dead as soon as it left the senate. The senator argued that the law requiring the redemption of notes in coin was a con tract. The United States could not avoid that contract without dishonor. This was the first time In the history of the country that an attempt was made to violate any con tract. "I denounce it as a repudiation of the public debt," exclaimed Mr. Sherman.- "This proposition is a crime to be denounced, and not proper to be voted on. Those who vote for it would countenance a dishonorable act. But thank God the measure cannot become a law while the house of representatives and the president are on the right side." There was a burst of applause from the galleries as Mr. Sherman closed, which the chair quickly checked. Mr. Teller replied to Mr. Sherman, and was followed by Mr. Allen, who also spoke in favor of the bill. Mr. Butler asked unan imous consent that a final vote be taken at 4 p. in. on Monday next. Mr. Hill said he saw no objection. Mr. Chandler reserved the right to move amendments. This raised some complications, and Mr. Dubois finally object ed to the agreement, saying it could be ar- SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 23, 1896. ranged tomorrow. The conference report on the river and harbor bill, including the agreement on the Santa Monica and San. Pedro items, was agreed to. Mr. Allen, whe .iad the floor on the bond bill, yielded U. ■ontlnue his speech tomorrow, and the sen -ie adjourned. HARBOR BILL REPORT. Conference Agreement Accepted After Some Scathing: Talk. WASHINGTON, May 22.—The Phillips labor commission bill, which was to have come to a vote in the house today, was completely crowded out by conference reports on the river and harbor and sundry civil bills, and will now go over until next week.. The re port on the silver and harbor bill, which showed an agreement on all Items save that relating to the Santa Monica and San Pedro harbors, was made the basis of a very bitter attack on the bill by Messrs. Hepburn (Rep., Io.) and Dockery (Dem., Mo.). The latter said he opposed this measure because it contained riotous appropriations, not warranted by the condition of the treasury. Mr. Dockery's re marks about the "impoverished treasury" and his appeals to the people were received with derisive jeers by the Republicans. At the conclusion of hia time, Mr. Hooker offered to yield him fifteen minutes more if he would point out a single item in the bill that was not justified. (Loud applause.) The challenge brought Mr. Hepburn (Rep., Io.) to his fact with a scathing speech on the bill. The bill, said Mr. Hepburn, had been passed by a brutal majority, without debate, and he made the assertion th-at not a section of the bill had ever been read In the house; seventy-five millions carried in a bill, and not a paragraph jof it ever read or considered. "Shame, shame," he cried; "shame or. such false pre tense.' Why did you force the bill through in forty minutes if you were not too cowardly to face an Investigation?" Mr. Hooker's motion to adopt the confer ence report was agreed to, IS9 to 56. The speaker reappointed Messrs. Hooker, Herman I and Cathings conferees. Mr. Cannon followed I with thp conference report on the sundry civil I bill. After some discussion the conference i report was defeated, 59 to 150. At 5 o'clock, | under the rule, the house took a recess until evening, when private pension bills were con sidered. BOND INVESTIGATION Begun by the Senate . Subcommit tee. WASHINGTON, May 22.-The sub-commit tee of the senate appointed to conduct the invest'gation of the recent bond issues un der the Peffer resolution held its first meet ing today, but transacted no business be yond directing that a letter be written to Secretary Carlisle reminding him that the committee was now prepared to proceed with the investigation, and would be pleased to receive the statement in writing which he had signified a willingness to furnish. 170 time was set for the next meeting, and prob ably none will be called until Mr. Carlisle's statement is received. California Harbor Compromise. WASHINGTON, May 22.—The conferees on the river and harbor bill have practically agreed upon a compromise on the Southern California item. It provides that commission shall be retained as the senate amendment provides, but that in case San Pedro is se lected for the outer harbor, the appropriation for the inner harbor at that place shall not be retained. Wisconsin Building; Bill. WASHINGTON, May 22.—Among the bills for public buildings favorably reported to day by a sub-committee of the house com mittee on public buildings and grounds was that of Wausau, Wis. 1 _550.000. MURDERED INFANTS. Woman Monster Sentenced to Death at London. LONDON, May 22.—The woman Dyer, who has been on trial on the charge of murdering numerous infants entrusted to her care, has been sentenced to death. She was arrested at Reading, together with her son-in-law, a man named Palmer, charged with having strangled to death a number of infants, whose bodies were recovered from the Thames, weighted down with bricks. From letters found in the possession of the woman it seemed apparent that thte parents of the Infants consigned to Mrs. Dyer's care were aware of the fate intended for them. The coroner has been puzzled for some time by the extraordinary large number of infants' bodies found in the Thames between Wapping and Battersea. It was impossible to trace the murder of all those thus found to Mrs. Dyer and Palmer, but it has been suspected that they were responsible for a large num ber of the deaths of the children thus found. PHOEBE COUZINS NEGLECTED. 11l and Ignored by Her Former As sociates. LOS ANGELES, Cal., May 22.—Miss Phoebe Couzins, the noted lecturer and woman suf fragist, who came to this city a few months ago, on account of a severe attack of rheuma tism, has rapidly grown worse and is now very ill. While not in absolute want, Miss Couzins' exchequer is somewhat depleted, and in consequence she applied to the suffragist association for a loan in order that she might leave this climate, which does not agree with her. She wrote to Mrs. Sargent, president of the suffragist association at San Francisco, and Miss Susan B. Anthony, but neither would come to her aid. Mrs. Sargent took no notice of the letter, and Miss Anthony replied that they needed all the money they had for the campaign for woman suffrage in Cali fornia. m . WAR ON ARTHUR. Some Engineers Dissatisfied With Their Present Chief. OTTAWA, Ont., May 22.—Chief Arthur, of the Brotherhood of Engineers, is likely to be opposed for the presidency.

QUAY PfilD TRIBUTE HE CAME T< CANTON TO ADMIT THAT THE BATTLE WAS OVER. OTHER LEADERS TO FOLLOW. THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE DEM OCRATS THE QUESTION TO BE CONSIDERED. PARTED WITH FRIENDLY WORDS. Neither One Had Anything to Say as to the Result ol the Con ference. CLEVELAND, 0., May 22.^-The Leader, ■which b&tter represents McKinley, perhaps, than any other newspaper in the United States, will publish tomorrow in substance the following upon the visit of Quay to Mc | Kinley: Quay came to Canton, not as the bearer of messages from any man or group of men, but as the leader of the Republican party In Pennsylvania. He did not come, as he face | tiously remarked in Washington, to question McKinley about his attitude on the money question. He was a Republican leader, visit ing the nutn who will certainly be the noml j nee of the Republican party for president. The | giving of offices was not considered, nor was the campaign for the nomination discussed, because every Republican knows that cam paign to be practically ended. One thing they did discuss was the campaign which McKin ley will enter against the Democratic candi date for president. The conference was most pleasant and cordial on both sides. The visit of Quay was such as will undoubtedly be made by many other Republican leaders, both before and after the St. Louis convention. At 1:24 p. m. Senator Quay was driven from the McKinley hoirs to the depot and took a train eastward. Both McKinley and Quay de clined to be interviewed about their confer ence. Later In the afternoon McKinley start- ed for Cleveland to join his wife and remain until Monday. Matthews Masterful Silence. PITTSBURG, Pa., May 22.—Senator Quay arrived at his borne In Beaver, Pa., from Canton, this evening. An effort was made to induce him to talk, but he refused to say anything further than that his conference with Maj. McKinley was satisfactory. To the query aa to whether he believed Mc- Kinley would be nominated, he replied: "I have nothing to Bay whatever." The senator broke his resolution not to talk th« next moment, however, and to a sollcitious ques tion as to whether he was still to be con sidered a candidate, emphatically replied: "Oh, yes. I am still a candidate for the presidential nomination, and shall be voted for at the St. Louis convention." * Only a Friendly Visit. CANTON, 0., May 22.—Senator M. S. Quay, of Pennsylvania, arrived this morning. Gov. McKinley having received a telegram that Senator Quay would pay him a visit, met him at tha station. To a reporter Senator Quay declined to talk as 10 the object of hia mission, saying merely that he was paying Gov. McKinley a friendly visit. It is be lieved here this afternoon that the visit is friendly in every way. w^i North Dakota Decisions.

CAN'T CONVICT ROMANO. A Smooth Swindling Scheme Shown Up In the Duluth Case. Special to the Globe. DULUTH, Minn.,May 22.—The trial of Sam uel D. Lisbon, alias Walter Romano, the al leged directory swindler, is In progress in the district court, and the testimony de veloped the fact that the scheme used by the swindler was smoother than was supposed at first. Last summer an agent thoroughly canvassed the city for advertising for the index business directory. He got few adver tlsements.but all were unwilling to have their names inserted free of charge. A large num ber of business men signed written papers, giving their consent to this, and they were much surprised when these same papers came back in the hands of Romano as con tracts for paid advertising. The signatures are undoubtedly genuine, but the contracts have been added since. Romano Is on trial for forgery, but it is doubted If the charge can be made to stick, as there is no forgery. He is defended by Seymour Stedman and J. M. McClintock. Stedman is from Chicago, where the gang of which the police claim Romano is a member, is located. No Bolt In South Dakota.
