There ns a discussion ou Ed
munds' amendment to make the re
cess 'from December 23 lo January 3
Lost and the resolution agreed to, 33
l o 26. '
On motion of Davis the bill to re
ieive the United diales treasurer from
the amount of t r:eui y-eigln million
charge lo him on the tiea-ury books
;ml deposited with several stints and
under the acts ol 1836, be taken up.
lie said this uioiiev would never be
called lor by i he Uu led Sinies as i1
never had been, in time of great need
and it was inconvenient to can y ii on
Ingallssaid that the inconvenience
lo book keepers was noi hing ompar
ed to the unjuslnesS of giving twctiix
eight millions lo the older siaies ai
the expence ol' those w ho were adop
ted since 1836 It was the original
contract that the money s'iould be
subject call by the United Stales.
Kirk wood intimated that the twenty-eight
stales interested were pooling
to secure this twenty-eight millions.
lie now offered as a second section
to I he bill the substance of the 5 per
cent bill, allowing the various slate
5 per cent of the value fthíir limits
by the mi-htary bounty warrants.
Thurmm thought the ó percent
bill should stand on its own merits.
He objected to the g vertí incut g.vin
away twenty-eight millions to the
states. It was the government's
money and i is our duty to pay as
fastas possible our two billions in
debtedness. Every dollar ot the seven or eight
hundred millions due next year could
be paid oil in ten years without un
duly burdening fie people, yet it is
proposed to extend it for forty r fifty
ears and at the same time giveaway
the public lands and increase the ex
penditures and as wo were do'iag; the
inevitable result of i his land policy
would create a public debt; to make
our debt like that of the British con
fuís, a pcrp tual tinuui'.y. He regard
ed a perpetual debt as one of the
greatest curses that could be inflictcr'
upon a nation. lie opposed this bill
as part the legislation teuding lo bring
ou t his misfort une.
Coukling thought Thiirinan's argu
ment vitiating like many other go d
Hfgumeuts by the incorrectness of his
premises. In 1836 there was a sur
plus in the trca-ury rais
ed by all the taxes on
lopulation then existing The sur
olus was dcposit"d with the States
then existing subject to the c.dl of thv
liovernmeut. It was a call loan bin
-ubsequently the quality of the call
loan was taken Irom it by act of Con
gress to the ellect4thut money should
never be called for except by act of
Congress ami on d ue notice the doc
trine of estoppel warranted the asser
tion that when the Government in
course of time had a great need for
money they could apply for ibis and
ii was slopped from claiming money
after forty years had passed and the
J States had, with thn knowledge of ihe
Government applied the money to
various purposes ou the assumption
that it was considered as a gift,
t'oukling thought the past had suf
ficiently demonstrated that the peo
ple, resources cud integrity of ihe
country would make it impossible for
any failure to pay the public debt
Blaine regarded act 33 as lb I y rc
itilting from (he theory that surplus
t revenuo must ho divided among
the whole population. To recall Ihe
niouey novr would be unjust, not only
because of the lapse of time and the
probable outlawing of the claim bul
also because the people who got the
money would not be the ours called
on to return it were not the men who
then lived in the benefited states.
The Senator from Oregon, G rover,
would be called upon to return the
share he got as a citizen of Maine
in which Stale money was fool
ishly divided per capita among the
popahnion. Blaine was not a citizen
of Mai: at that time but he would
have payed his share of niouey as a
citizen of the state. ll would be
found a debt of former generations
and should not be placed on this gen
eration. Thurnmn said that doctrine was
untenable; that there was no bar of
limitation to this debt. lie said
money was by law returnable on de
maud. The debate was suspended and the
Cflnfdil appropriation Bill was refer
red, to the committee.
On motion the Senate adjourned.
Washington, Dec. 20. -Dunn intro

Mr. Trice thought that it was .-ui-ticient
argument to the objeción! to

rency. The Speaker: "Did it 'o there by
bill or petition?"
Price: "By both."
Alter lurther debate ou this poiul

Miles then ppocd the bill. He
thought there were oilier Kibjecis
more fit for the reduction of tax than

smuggle this bill through the House
to prevent the amendment taking
away from monopolists some of their
ill gotten gains.
Decline in Stocks.
New York, Dec, 20. -The decline in
