Tashisgtox, Feb. & When the sen
ate adjourned last nipht it was with the
.-r cment that a Tote shall Oe taten on
the sundry civil bill at 3 o'clock this af
ternoon. The financial issue, which has
hu:ig like a great raenacine cloud over
thj senate chamber for many weeks, waa
uldinly and psnnancntly dissipated.
For four hours there was a storm 01 fio-
bite in which the most conspicuous flnan-
dsl ficuros of the senate were listened to
by crowded calleries. And then Gorman,
whose financial amendment had brought
on the contest, withdrew the proposition
and the subject was summarily disposed
of. A moment later Mills' proposition to
repeal the law3 authorizing the issue of
bonds was cut oil by a ruling of the chair
that it was out of order. Thus the finan
cial issue which had threatened serious
d-.-lay to the appropriation fciiU was un
expectedly swept away,

Gorman made the principal speech in
a 1 vocacy of the proposition for authoriz
Ini tKO,(!00."00 of debt certiGcatcs to meet
trraury deficiencies. Ths senator called
In qu tlon the accuracy of Scerctary Car
lisle's report of the treasury's safe condi
tion, and declared that a deficiency of f 11,-
lw for the fiscal year waa assured. Hill
mule a speech against the amendment
which involved him in several sharp col
loquies. Sherman, Allison, and Aldrich
supported the Gorman amendment. Voor
hees, chnirman of the finance committee,
opposed the amendment on the ground
that it wa-s needless, and it was directly
opp.stxl to the wishes of the president and
secretary of the treasury. Mills spoke
vigorously against tho issue of bonds.
Lively Spat Uetweca Hill and Mill.
The most interesting feature of the de
bate was the colloquies In which promi
nent senator j ilrcJ and one of the liveli
est f these was t etween Mills and Hill.
In l ho cour.-c of this Mills asked Hill:
Vh:.t kind of money do you. believe in
anyw-iyf" "I believe in the prold and sil
ver of the constitution." responded Hill;
"1 am not a Grcenbackcr now, and never
"Not a Greenbackerf" exclaimed Mills,
derisively. Then nddressinir Hill person
ally he said: -When your prent state of
New ' ork in l sent Horatio S5e mour
to tho national Democratic convention it
was on a platform of paying all publio
obligations in Kreenbacks. Where were
you then i" There was intense energy in
Mills' ouery, and tho galleries broke into
lauchter. "Kcad tbut olatlorm, saia
m). Where Was Itoderlck Then?"
Mills r?Bd the plank concerninjr grecn
barks and then, turning to Hill with keen

The senators were much amused and
the galleries again broke into laughter. "Of
course you voted for Horatio iSeytnour,
said Mills, again addressing Hill. The
latter made no tcsponso and Gray said,
sotto voce: "He was too young.
The Mala tjnestloa Would Remain.
Allison then argued for the certificate
scheme as a tt mpornry matter, and Hill
said: Even if such a temporary expedi
ent is adopted will not the question of the
redemption of the green nicks remainr
"Certainly," replied Allison.
"Then is it not our duty to address onr-
si Ives to this su!jcctr" asked Hill. Alii
son pnrried tho question ly simply call
ing Hill's attention to the absolute futil
ity of attempting any real remedial finan
cial legislut.ou at this late hour In the

fMctlun to UeauorratcSherinan's Talk,
Sherman got the floor and advocated
the ccrtiuVa'es rider. In reply to queries
made by ilill Sherman said the grcen
iaeks should not be redeemed. They
were t no la voted money of the people.
They should be kept out without reference
to the wislie of the New Yorfc bankers.
I cannot understand why anyone should

Hill then t xik tho floor. He first discus-
ed the technical parliamentary status.
If tl is 1 nancial amendment was in order
tl:en the Ueod gates were open and any
kind of financial legislation could be add
ed to n n appropriation bill. Once upon
this i omplic ited question and an extra
cession was inevitable. In tho expiring
hours o .'congress it was unwhre to sweep
away ilie ainple pr.wers of the secretary to
l'soe bonds and give him some new and
uii'r.id power that he did not wrnt.
Hill then turneU his attention to Mills'
stateiuent as to Horatio Seymour and tho
gnvnUick platform of 18S8. "The result
of that contest is not one of congratula
tion among Democrats," said Hill.
-Let me suggest," said Voorhees, "that
Horatio Sfejmour carried New York by
1i).i0 mnjority over Grant in Is."
"Yes," said Iliil, "because Seymour
was so enshrined In the hearts of the peo
ple cf New York that he could carry the
state, greenbacks or no greenbacks."
Hill read from early speeches of Sher
man against greenbacks and compared
these it b what he said now. Sherman
said those onti greenback speeches were
nindc ve years before the resumption act
which citanged everything. Hill pointed
out that the danger to the treasury waa
not la a deficiency on current expenses,
but in gold to redeem the endless chain of
greenbacks. And yet this pending amend
m 'tit provided funds for deficiencies alone,
and gae no means of securing the gold
whim was tho real need of the treasury.
Pugh interrupted to say that the green
back legislation of IsTs was enacted by a
I uiocrat.c congress.
Gray hurried back and whispered to
Hill, who then declared it,wns the senator
Iroia Ohio (Sherman) who was responsi
ble for that legislation. "He was not in
congress then," said Voorheea. "He was
then secretary of the treasury."
- "So, I was not in congress then," said
"1 will help the senates- oat," said Yi
her HilL "There was a senator from
Ohi here at that time whose name was
much like that of the present senator and
he heartily supported the greenback leg
islation. It waa Allen G. Thurman. of
"I do not question the Democracy of
Allan G. Thurman," said HilL "but I
sometimes think our western friends get
nnsouna on questions of finance."
"And we of the west return the compli
ment to you of the east," said Voorhees.

Washixstoh, Feb. 2& A point of order
made in the senate that the "rider" was
not in order authorizing the secretary cf
the treasury to Issue 8 per cent, certificates
for the running expenses of the govern
ment when necessary, led to four hours
financial debate, which was closed by
Gorman withdrawing his rider. The bill
(sundry civil) was then proceeded with,
the amendment being adopted to appoint
a commission to take part in any interna
tional monetary conference that may be
c tiled. It was agreed that tho bill bo
VMeU on this afternoon.
The house attended to some routine
business and then proceeded to consider
public building bills, but got into a snarl
on the proposal to buy a sito for a new
government print shop, and dropped the
whole subject. The senate amendment
to the posteffice bill designed to destroy
the effect of the post master general's or
der requiring railway mall clerks to live
on the lino of railroads to which they are
assigned, but requiring future appointees
to do so, was agreed to. Twcnty-ouo
pension bills were passed.
