Washington, Feb. . While the senate was discussing the Stewart bond resolution Teller got the floor and said thnt the recent purchase of United States bonds was a "forced' purchase. Tlie secretary of the treasury had in New York stated to the bankers that if these lionds were not float ed there would te a panic a greater panic than the one of last fall and it was to avoid thnt panic that they reluctantly pur chased the bonds. "I am "not speaking as a partisan or as a silver man," said Teller, "but I want to know wlmt the American congress is going to ilo with this question of a deficiency. Kvcrj body knows from the experience of the secrctaJy f the treasury that no more 5 per ccn$ bjnds on a 3 per cent, lwsis can lie sold.

MWe are face to face wth the question whether there is to lie a continued defi ciency or whether there is to lie some ef fort to meet this deficiency by t-ome sound system of finance. The credit of the country is threatened and ths men who have la-en loudest in denunciation of He publican finance have now to stand up and declare that they have not the skill or the will to devise a way out of these difficulties." IVffer contended that t0 secretarv of the treasury had not even pretended that the money derived from the isimls was to be used for redemption purposes. A Uveljr Time in the House. There was some filibustering in the house, Keed doing what he could to delay thedelmte on the Bland seigniorage, bill.

Thus it went on, as stated, for four hours, when the quorum upjicared iu island's favor and . he got' tiie house into committee of the whole on his bill, and lllund explained its provisious, not being through at adjouruincut. it was thor oughly understood that quite a number of Dniocruts who voted with lllaud were in favor of certain modifications of the bill, although they won id not curry their op position to the extent of voting against its consideration, it is also well known that Secretary Carlisle and the administration generally is opiosrd to tins tiiil iu its pres ent form.

This is taken to mean that a compromise has been agreed upon and that certaiu con cessions will be made, in line with the auggestions of Carlisle who, while he is represented as not being against the coin age of the silver seiguiurage in the treasury. yet insists that discretionary isnver ought to be lodged with the secretary of the treasury about Issuing the seigniorage either in form of certificates or of coin, so that it would not be injected in a lump iuto thecirculating medium of the country He maintains thnt it would be as injurious to put out aVsrui.tiuti suddenly as it would be to withraw that amount from the cir culating medium, lie is also opposed, it is understood, to the second section of the bill, which makes mandatory tlie coinage of the Kst of the bullion in the treasury and the redemption of outstanding treas ury notes under the act of lMKIaafast as the coinage takes place.
