"TflE GRIP OF '96"
i ,
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withdrawn today, and by the decisive vote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
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»
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
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
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-
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.
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

California Harbor Compromise.
WASHINGTON, May 22.—The conferees on
the river and harbor bill have practically
agreed upon a compromise on the Southern

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

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

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.
North Dakota Decisions.
BISMARCK, N.D., May 22.—The supreme

assignee of E. T. Spafford, vs. M. J. O'Con
nor, as sheriff of Grand Forks county, an ap
peal from the decision of Judge Templeton,
who held that the insolvency law of the state
was unconstitutional. The decision is re
versed, the court holding that part of the law
is constitutional. This is a victory for the
assignee. The other opinion was In the case
of Homer E. Sargent, appellant, vs. Charles
F. Kindred, respondent; an appeal from Cass
county. The decision of Judge McConnell is
reversed and an order entered denying the
motion to vacate jndgment. Both opinions

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.
