HILL'S REMARKABLE UTTERANCE ' ... Tho New York Democrat Make it ttag- ulllceiit Kn'ort In Ilia Rupinrt of the Free Coinage Kill , Associated Press. Washington, Aug. 25. Vest gent to the clerk's desk today, to have read, a communication from the director of the mint, giving statistics of the quan tity of sliver bullion purchased since 1873, the date of the Bland-Allison act, Its cost, the amount coined, etc. Vest summed up all these figures to show that -if all the silver dollars were re scinded at the ratio proposed In the bill (20 to 1) there still would be a profit to the treasury on the whole silver trans actions Btnce 1878, of over fifteen and one-quarter millions. He Intimated pretty broadly that Carlisle in his let ter to Senator Voorhees on the same subject had not, treated the matter fairly. Hill of New York, then deliv ered his speech'. The existing financial disturbance, Hill found, was attribut able to three distinct causes. First, it was the natural and inevitable result of many years of real or fictitious prosperity. Second, some portion of the present panic could be traced to a concerted effort on the part of the monometallists to produce it In order to discredit silver. Third, the silver purchase law. Hill did not believe that the simple repeal of Uie Sherman law would at once restore abundant pros perity, but that many years would be required to recover from the present disturbance. He was a bl-metaU'lst, and stood for free coinage at the proper ratio. A permanent remedy for our fin ancial difficulty was to return to bi metallism as it existed prior to 1873. jle favored the increase 6flhe Nation al bank circulation as proposed in the pending bill. Continuing, he said, that the question of ratio, if changed at all, should not be enlairfed but diminished to 15'j. He should refuse to follow in the footsteps of any administration that sought to place the democratic party In a false position and lead It Into the very camp of the enemy. The Sherman law. should be repealed as a measure of temporary relief. Next De cember a permanent system should be considered. The chief interest today In the sen ate, centered In the speech of Senator Hill, who defined his position on the financial question in a speech of near ly two hours duration. Nearly every member was In his seat attentive list eners, and many senators crowded over to hear the distinguished senator. "I am a democrat," which, has ' now be come proverbial, was recalled today by his forcible declaration on the fin ancial question, when as usual, he epitomised his silver views In a single sentence: "I'am,a bi-metalllst." The chief surprise of the speech of Senator Hill was the position he assumed, min imizing the Importance of the revision of coinage ratio, and. his suggestion that International bimetallism might be got by holding oul an Inducement to the Latin Unon countries to recoin at a profit rather than at aloss. He gave greater satisfaction to the Western free coinage people than even the most sanguine had expected from his argu ment. There was dead stillness in the senate when the speaker referred to the statements of President Cleveland, attempting to lead the country to mon ometajllsm, and .when he. mad his comment thereon, concluding with hg defiance to the presidential domina tion. "I shall refuse," said he, "to fol low In the footsteps of any administra tion that seeks to place the democratic party in a false position; that seeks to lead it away from democrat! princi ples and platforms and Into the very camp of- the enemy. The president must rely upon republican ' votes to carry out any such suicidal policy." The democratic senators looked gloomy and unhappy, but a smile of" amused satisfaction covered the faces of the republicans. Referring to the tariff, the speaker said; The democratic party Is pledged to tariff reform and it must redeem its pledges, come what may. The people perfectly understood the question last fall and they voted with their eyes wide open. Our course is "n ward, and we chall not recede." In conclusion, Senator Hill saidr "No one, be he a democrat, republican, or a populist, should be deterred from vot ing for this bill simply because it Is hailed as an administration measure. That furnishes no argument for or against it. Mr. president, this bill is going to pass this senate. I believe It. I predict it." LEGISLATIVE DOINGS. Washington, Aug. 25.

The redemption paper money Is made in the same class as money presented.

Today the treasury books showed a 197,000,000 gold reserve and a net balance of $11, 000,000. This balance is cbmposed al most exclusively of subsidiary coin, te reserve being used In payments of bUgatlons of the" government.

In the stomach and bowels produced by a violent purgative and its conse quent drenching action, never are, be cause it is impossible they should be, followed by permanent good effects. No specific which weakens and con vulses the organs for whose relief it is used can do good. Blue pills, calomel, podyphyllln, salts and senna, vegetable or mineral pills, are drastic remedies generally void of benefit. A reliable and effective substitute for them la Hosteller's Stomach Bitters, which ef fects a change both natural and thor ough in the bowels when they are con stipated. A sufficient and regular se cretion of bile by the liver and sound digestion are also promoted by its use. Malaria in all its forms, rheumatism and kidney trouble are obviated by this fine reformer of disordered condi tions of the system. A winwinfji tr.ree tin,e a day i about the dose.
