[ Special Telegram to Tin : Hue. ] It Is ono thing to call n stale convention for 2'clock , bul It la another thing to got the delegates together nt that hour. Tills fact was emphasized this afternoon \vlioii the Independent delegates to the state convention attempted to get together at ii o'clock. The usual confusion and disorder incident to the gathering of u largo delegate body continued for nearly im hour , and it was not until a o'clock that Chairman Blake of the state central committee r.ippoii for onlor and asked the pleasure of the conven tion. tion.Whilo While the delegates were sifting Into the hall n number of men busied themselves in circulating tracts and handbills upon \\hicl a great deal of otherwise valuable printers' ' Ink had been expended in gratuitous adviei to the delegates. Quo of these leaflet ! appealed to the temperance sentiment o f the delegates. Another roclted the evils o f the telephone , monopoly. Still another ox ploitcd the glory of free silver coinage. .1 KinalLono wafted thu plaintiff appeal : "Don" t Commit the Fglly of Making Silver tn Leading Plank in Our Platform. " The ad vice wus clearly in the nature of an nppea to the delccates to saw wood. At 2 : ! W. A. Howard , that tuneful indi vidual , who is already a familiar llguro at Independent gatherings , sang "Tiring tl.o Good Old Ballot , Boys , " to the cheerful air of "Marching Through Georgia , " the , Bovcral- huimiVHdelegates joining heartily in the chorus. Then Mayor Weir of Lincoln welcomed the convention to the city in ono of his characteristic speeches , in the course of which ho advised the dele gates not tn nominate any man who was seeking an oftlco for bis own aggrandize s- ment. Ho closed by warning them against , the "political hacks , bummers and dcad- rbe.xls who have cotno over from the other parties. " Then Howard sang an improved song , In which ho made several pointed allusions to "Honest John , " and in response the dele gates cheered themselves hoarse , while ' Oiovernor" Powers bowed his head in modest acknowledgement of the tribute > nf npplauso. for Points , \V. A. Poynter look the platform for n brief response , to Mayor Wolr's address of welcome. In the course of his remarks he stated that in recent years the impression had steadily been gaining that the supreme court of the state was not heartily in sympathy with the Interests of the people of the state , and that the Judges of that court were too often influenced by corporate ] > owcr. Ho closed with a significant warn ing to the effect that the party would meet with su.ro disaster if the convention nominated a candidate with a record that had to bo explained away. The drat tilt between the Hagan forces and the Held ngainst him * cauie over the selection of a temporary chairman. There word indications of a coming storm as red as nominations for the position wore called for. Delegates were clamoring for necogni- lion from evory'pnrtof thonall. Grlinisoii of Colfax nominated w. A. Poynter of Ilooiio. Judge Neville brought out Senator Dale of Ilarlan. Then in an Impassioned : burst of llory eloquence Kd Morearty , the Seventh ward ox , announced his intense eagerness to place In nomination the man whom ho described " 10r as "a manly char- nntcr of noble qualities whom all the Inde pendents loved for the enemies ho had made. " Then he sprung thu name of .T. A. Sheridan of Hod Willow iIt county and the con vention laughed. D. Clem Denver's nomina tion of George Abbott of Itlchardson county was the llrst intimation to the convention that the Douglas county caucus was not on- tnt'i.v harmnnlous. rise Something of a surprise was created when Kcprcsontativo Fulton of Ilarlan arose and with tt'o ' senator's consent withdraw Dale's name from the contest in favor of Poynter. I'oyntrr Snliu'toil Trinpnrnrlly. The secretary made the call of the coun ties and as the veto proceeded it was naln- fully evident that while the gladlaiur from Hod Willow county was in the race ho wasn't in It. The secretary announced the result of the vote aa follows : Povnter , f > SI ; Sheri dan , 110 ; Abbott , 8t5j ( janln , 1. The rin tiouncoment was received with applause niul Mr. Poynter was escorted to thu plat form , where ho assumed the functions of his position without a speech. Charles N. Mayhcrry of PAwnee and Fred Jewell of Platte wore made temporary sec retaries. Jerome Scliamp of Lancaster moved a committee on credentials and the convention agreed. Dr. Woods secured the appointment of a committee on permanent organization. At this Juncture In thu deliberations of the convention John O. Velscr of Doug'ns ' county , climbed into a position where he was very evidently not wanted. Ho moved the jip. pjiiitincnt of a committee of five on resolutions , fly a very singular infer cldonce there were loud calls for "Porter , " "Speech , " Kcallziug nit ' something was expected of him. ; er 'llmilly iirose , ami , after n brief explanation moved for the appointment of u committee of live on resolutions. Instantly a hull down delegates sprang to their feet feet anil protested that they had seconded Yolser's motion to the same effect. The ' chairman blandly remarked that ho didu'l know it. The protests were renewed , bul the chairman was equal to the occasion. Ht didn't propoio 10 name Mr. Vcisor as the chairman of the committee on platform and ho therefore prudently announced that libras much as lie hud heard no second there wai DO second. I'rcclplluteil n I'unlc. Then it roiualiiod for Base Uttle-llolJ , he Perkins county editor , to precipitate n torn iiorury panlo by offering au amendment into T Porter' motion , In which ho de-sired thalnl rr solutions thould ba referred to the com nitttce without reading , There was no ll" taklug the temper uf the contention. ll"A ' protest went up from a hundred throats Ctrpoulcr of Johnson coiwSy mounted ts.u i chair and vociferously assorted that the convention would never , no sir , never , tolerate the introduction of republican gag-ruto 'methods. A shout of approval followed us the little man climbed down to give room to Abbott of Hichardson | county , who turned loose a Hood of eloquence which overwhelmed the Perkins county amendment to the Intense delight of the ex cited delegates , Captain Barry Greclcy then swung a bag of oil to the tumultuous waves nnd calmed thorn In a moment by making the point of order that thoPcrklni amendment was not germane to the Mcrrick motion , The chairman so held , ami Strlekler ot Douglas applied a healing plaster to the wounded feelings of the convention by mov ing that all resolutions should bo read nnd then referred to the committee without de bate. The adoption of the motion brought permanent relief , and then U transntred that nobody had any rcsolullons to offer. Porter's motion lor a committee on platform mid resolutions was carried , CniitinlttccB ( lot to Work. The chairman then announced the follow ing committees : On credentials ; Schamp of Lancaster , Allen of Cass. Abbott of Uichardson , Sher idan of Hcd Willow , Saundcrs of Platte. On permanent organization : Small ot York. Strlcklor of Douglas , Porter of Mer- rick , Gallln of Saundurs , Munn of Oloo. ' On platform and resolutions : Jones of Adams , Moroarty ot Douglas , Wright of Johnson , Wolf of Lancaster , Saundcrs of Hurt. No little surprise was manifested when Jones was announced as chairman of the committee on resolutions , instead of Porter , but when Jones pulled a big roll of paper from his Inside pocket and started for the committee rooms the knowing ones nt once understood that Chairman Poynter know what ho was about. A recess of thirty minutes was then taken In order to give the committees time to make their reports , The Interval was consumed by thu delegates In securing thu receipts which would nnublo them to get n one-third rateon their way homo. This proceeding was attended with no little con fusion , but nil were finally supplied. At 4i5 : ; the convention again came to order and Speaker Gallln moved for the appoint ment ot a committee of live on rules and order ot business. The motion prevailed nnd the chair appointed Gallln of Saunders , Porter of Mirrick , James of Boone , Cary of Dodge and Barry of Greeloy. The committee on credentials made a pro forma report which was adopted. Senator Dnlu TiikuH tliu Clllllr. The committee on permanent organization recommended the election of Senator W. P. Dale of Ilarlan county as chairman , D. Clem Denver of Omaha , secretary , anil Pr.itt of Merriek and Haley of Fillmore , ussistant secretaries. On motion of Judge Dcvlno of Colfnx , the recommendations of the committee were adopted by a unanimous vote. Mr. Dale's speech upon assuming the gavel was of the brief and perfunctory sort. Ho roturncd thanks for the honor conferred upon him , asking the indulgence of the con vention and made the usual assurances of fairness to every delegate on the lloor of the convention. Ho closed by the prediction that the convention would go to work with I thu determination and conviction thut next I November the independent party would elevate to the supreme bench a man who would not only bo n credit to the people of I the stuto , a credit to the party , and a man | whose sympathies were'honestly with the toiling musses on the field , at tno forgo and In the shop. .Some Resolution * Sent In. Abbott of Uichardson sent a resolution to the secretary's desk in which the sentiment was expressed thut the independent nominee for judge of the supreme court should pledge" himself not to accept from u railroad u pass or any other favor not accorded to the whole people. Nowns ot'Sarpy presented a resolution do- nounclng the railroads for their action in in- voicing the assistance of the federal court in an attempt to evade the luws of the state. Judge Dundy wus also denounced for the assistance ho gave the railroads and his im- pcuchmcnt wus demanded at the hands of congress. Kdgerton of Douglas took advantage of n temporary lull In the proceedings to insist upon u speech by 13. C. Howick of Lincoln , ItuurlrkVuri > ii 'Km Up. Mr. IJowick devoted over an hour to n scathing review of the frauds perpetrated against the state by the men in charge of the stuto Institutions. His exposure was the same with which ho slartlcd the state last September and its details are well re membered by everybody. lie reviewed the asylum and penitentiary steals , the school land frauds and the Capital National hunk failure. In connection with iho latter ho defended the action of Governor Crounso In approvlm * the bond given by Moshor und Oulcnlt and placed the blaine upon the shoulders of the secretary of state and the attorney general , Ho also claimed to have made a discovery with ref erence to the bond that , If correct , lends n now and startling feature to the transaction by which the state treasury was mulcted of over WOO.OOO. in examining the bond at the state house" yesterday ho discovered that while It wus executed on January 10 , IS'Jil , It wus approved two days previously , January 14. Ills criticism on the unseemly haste of state otllciuls to approve u bond two days before it wus executed provoked u chorus of - groans , Jeer and hisses from the delegates , who selected that method ot expressing tholr opinion of some of the business inothods in ' vogue at the state house. Mr. Hewiclc closed his speech with ao arraignment of the methods employed by the Stuto Journal company of Lincoln in mulcting thu stuto on printing contracts. - U'libii'tii Happy I'liin. Chairman Guftln of the committee on rules and order of business made n report in which the following program wns mapped out : first Selection of members of stuto cen tral committee , the chairman , secretary and treasurer to bo appointed by the committee. - Second Call of counties for nomination of candidates for judge of supreme court and regents , The committee recommended that thi ) llrst ballot should bu an Informal ono , The proposition to authorize the state cen tral committee to select iu own ofllcers pro voked a row of the llrst magnitude. Abbott of Richardson was-on his feet in nn instant with an amendment. HP wanted the state - convention to select ihe-chuirman. Hurry of Greeloy combutlcd Iho Idea In a neatly worded speech , . Then a half dozen delegates took their turn at the wheel und every ono jumped - on to tno unfortunate men .who have hereto , fore held the ofllco of chairman. After Messrs. Blake and Pirtto had boon roasted sufllcicrilly brown , Slovens of Furniis moved lint previous question , after which Abbott's amendment was defeated and the report of the committee adopted.

N'nmlnntlng Sp'cchc * Which Kxtolleil tlio Merit * of tlio .Men , At 0:40 : the chairman culled for nomina tions for supreme Judge. The call by comities was demanded , nnd when Adams was called , Prof , Jones of Hastings took the platform to present the name of John M. Ilagan. An obstreperous delegate from Nance insisted that n secret , Informal ballot was first on the program before nominations , but ho was finally ruled out after the com- mlttoo on organization had diagramed ' what It meant. , After tno Interruption Prof. Jones con- ttnucd his remarks In favor of Judge Hagan. He claimed that Mr. H.i an was thoroughly in sympathy with independent principles and had been thoroughly and sincerely ' Idcutlflcd with that party for two years past. Ho claimed that wliilj the county had political and ecclesiastical equality , that it did not have economic equality. Ho was llnnly of the opinion that the nominn- ] tioa ol Judge Hagan would bring economic " equality. An attempt was made here to shut off further nominating speeches , but it didn't go. Campbell of Ouster county took the plat form to nominate Judge Huleomb of Broken Bow. Ho was eloquent to nn eminent de gree and succeeded In rousing the enthusi asm of the friends of the Ouster county favorite. Ho alluded to Judge Holconib as the great commoner of the independent party of Nebraska , and raised moro cheers up to the roof when ho assorted that Hoi- comb had no record behind him which -vould have to be defended or explained. "DiirJuo" SprcmU Himself. When Douglas county was called Joe Edgorton rose lo second the nomination of Hagjin , and he made the effort of his life. Ho claimed that Inasmuch us the subsidized press of the state was' against tUagati ho must be a good man for the Independents to tie to. Ho claimed that THE OMAHA Bui : was making a fight on Hugan and moved the friends of thu gentleman to vociferous applause by his recommendation that the convention should nominate him because Tin : Bin : opposcil him , tie further admitted that Itagan was not ashamed of anything ho had over done. Isaac Hascall of Douglas stated that his delegation was divided in Its preferences aim that on behalf ot a portion of the dele gates ho seconded the nomlnatlou of Judge Holconib. Captain Ashbyof Gage county placed in nomination the name of Judge Bush of Beat rice as a man who had no concealments to make nnd no defense to anticipate. Among other things ho alluded to Judge Bush's military record , and said that ho himself had been on the other side and could per sonally testify to the gallantry of the Ono Hundred and Twelfth Illinois regiment , of which Judge Bush was a motubcr. Maxwoll'i ) > : tmo Applauded. Barry of Greelov then arose to nominate Judge Maxwell. Ho believed in nonpartisan judiciary and paid u high tribute to the legal ability and eminent services of the venerable chief justice. His nomination ot Justice MaxwelLwas received with applause from several paits of the hall , but there were hisses and cries ot "rats" from the corner where the Hagan delegates had congregated. Randall of Hall , in nominating Judge .1. H. Thompson'of Hall county , said , that the In dependents didn't have to go to the enemy fora candidate , and they didn't want an old gold bug anyway. Ho also raised a storm of hisscs.from the Ilagan corner by juying- that Judge Thompson was not n played-out poli tician from one of the old parties. Oliver Crpmwell of Lancaster seconded the nomination of Judge Holcomb. J. V. Wolf also of Lancaster seconded the nonii nation of Hag.m , and raised an incipient row among the members of his own delegation , who loudly asserted that ho spoke for him self alone. Polh mus of Nuekolls seconded Hagan's nomination for the reason that Tin : Bci : man down at Omaha was so scared of Hagan that he was nearly dead. Saunders of Platte seconde'd the nomina tion of Judge Bush and had the grace to cut It short. Abbott of Hichardson also seconded the Gage county Judge's nomination for the rea son tnat his heart was In the right place. Poynter ot Boone seconded the nomina tion of Thompson. When Saunders county was reached Speaker Gallln nominated S. H. Hornburger. Hev , Mr.-Snydor added the weight ot Ills second to the nomination of Judge Hlcomb , and said that hu was a win ner anywhere. Parsons of Wheeler also had n second for HolcomD. The last county was York , and Delegate Parsons of that county placed in nomination the name of Judge Edward Bates as n man who stood nearest the hearts of the people in his district. Apiinmchlni ; the Informal Hullot. It was nearly 10 o'clockvhcntholistof orators was exhausted , but another delay was encountered before the convention could proceed to n ballot. Several delegates had offered resolutions , which had riot been reported by the committee. They did not propose to bo squelched in this manner , Tnoy Insisted that their resolutions shouk ho considered. It took llf teen minutes to dispose * of the matter , and then it wasn' disposed of. Handail of Hall moved that the candidates bo accorded live minutes each In which to present their views. This was voted down and then Abbott of Hichardson , the authoi of the anti-pass resolution , turned liimsek loose In a speech which Jarred the celling , As a result his resolution was adopted , am ! at ten minutes af ten 10 o'clock the informa ballot commenced. How the Vote Scattered. The Informal ballot proceeded with con sldorablo confusion. Many of the counties divided their votes among several cunili dates. Adams county led off with thirteen votes for Hagan , and there was a alight rip 'auso , whleji in a moment burs , nto a- roar when Buffalo county gave twenty votes to Holcomb , Butler followed with cloven votes for Holcomb and three fu Hagun , There was another roar when Cus tor county pave twenty-three votes fo Holcomb , followed immediately by tin twelve votes of D.iwuon county. Docigi county brought ouc n chorus of hisses from Hagan's supporters by casting four of he : nine voles far Maxwell. Douglas count' , gavJjtatran nineteen , Holcomb fifteen , Bus ) ' three , Bates two and Thompson'seven. Lancaster county also scattered , giving Hoi comb twenty-thtuo , Hagan seven , Bate three and Hush one , From this point tli voti ) proceeded rapidly , and the end wu. reached , ' 1 ho soon ofllcial announcement o : the Informal ballot wus announced at 10:4 : us follows : Holcomb , . . . , , 32& Itagan , ICO lliHli m llutus , lui Thiinp ) > .on , , , . . 48 Muxnull 10 Hornbcrgcr , * SO The total number of votes cast was 7U7 requiring ii'JS to nominate. The announce ment of the result was greeted with voeifur ous cheers from the Holcomb people , win were so far in the lead ( hut uoy neve doubted the success of their candidate 01 the ilrst formal ballot , As soon us the ofttclu announcement was made all was coufusio on the lloor of the convention , but in a fev moments the roll cull proceeded on the firs formal ballot. .Muilo It Holcomli. Adams county swung oft again for Hagan but u moment laterBoonocouiity gave eleven votes for Holcomb , which hud' uucn given to Thompson on the Informal ballot. A few moments Inter Judge Thompson arose und withdrew from tlio race. ? Holcomb.iuado small gains until ho reached Douglas county , and then his slock went up with n rush , for ho received thirty-threa votes , while Hagan received but thirteen. By this time every body saw the Inevitable uud there wus a steady drift to Holcomb , Greeloy county's Maxwell delegates went to Holcomb in a body und so did the three Maxwell men irom | Dodge. Lancaster divided us follows : Hoi- comb twenty-sir , Itignu 'ten nnd Bates ono. Otoo county gave tlilcomb her solid vote. Htchardson county chamtod her IIf- teonotcs -lrom,5j Hush to Hol comb. The , announcement of ; welvo votes lor Holcoititt f rotn'tshcrldun county gave the Ouster county man ' ; the nomination be yond peradventure of h doubt. After this the delegates fairly tumbled over each other In their anxiety to record their votes for the man whoso success wns already assured. Captain Ashhy lookadfuntagoot the ground swell to take the Cage county delegation In out of the wet by changing Its votes from Bush to Holcomb. Johnson , Ncmaha and Thomas following suit. Tlio seven doubters from 1/incaster county hurried over to the Holcon. J camp nnd the rout became general. NrtlnoVltlidrirll. . Professor Jones , us chairman of the Adams county delegation , then , on behalf of Judge Hagau , withdrew 'that gentleman's name from a raeo In which ho was already dis tanced , nnd moved that Judge Holcoinb's nomination bo made .Unanimous. Asnti.y of Gage seconded the motion and the thing was done. And this U the reason why there was no ofllcial announcement of the llrst formal ballot. llpuril Somn Happy iicnchrn. When tlio onthuslnm of the convention had sulllclcntly subsided Judge Holcomb was Introduced.His thanks were modestly brief. Ho pledged hlitisolf anew to the prin ciples of the Independent party and promised to advance the cause'of the organization. Ho expressed his approbation of the plat form adopted carlier < 'tn the ovonim ? . If elected , he'plodgcd his solemn honor to forgot politics and give to tlio duties ot the high position an unprejudiced mind and judgment. Judges Hngan , Bates and Bush were called out In succession and all spoke good words for their successful competitor. At the request ot JJ.'Clom Deaver , Isaac Hascall took the platform and 'for half an hour hu discussed the financial question to the apparent delight , of the delegations. The two delegates from Loguu county , who were compelled to como to Lincoln tn a wagon -"iO miles tn attend the convention , w < jv called to the platform for a brief but none the less hearty ovation. The conven tion then at nearly midnight proceeded to the nomination of c.ind'datos ' for regent of the state university. Niimcd ( or Ko rnt. | The candidates for regents were numerous and the list Included B. F. Pratt of Merrlclc , A. A. Monroe of Douglas , George Horst of Polk , James Finch of Antelope , B. F. Allen of Cuss , J. M. Snydcr of Sherman , C. L. Bralnard of Chase and E. L.

Although It was called In the name of all those republicans who are ; op posed to the temperance plank In the repub lican state platform , the proportion ot that kind of republicans was very small In the makeup ot the convention. The mam ele ment in the convention were those who have heretofore encouraged and worked for partisan prohibition , and never allied them selves with the republican party tn its most radical prohibition years. The convention was not largo , not moro than 150 accredited delegates being present. It was an exceed ingly turnulcnt bodv. The nomination of Hon. L. S.

Dr. Emory Miller was made temporary chairman. Ho said that If Governor Boles was re-elected It 1 would bo the result of the republican con vention lust August , not of this. The ques tion was to save us many members of the legislature 1 as possible for prohibition. 1C Hov. J. D. Wells was made permanent chairman nnd the usual committees were selected.

The silver mon In the senate today sprung a surprise on the repeal forces in the declaration ot Mr. Stewart that hereafter a iitiorum ot the senate would liuve to bo present when senators spoke upon thu silver question. If the opponents of repeal insist upon : v quorum being present at all times It will bo n new move and may seriously interfere with the program ot the friends of repeal. Mr. Voorhcos today submitted his resolu tion thr.t the senate meet at IV o'clooic In stead of lion ! and after Thursday naxt , anil It has been Intimated that If this docs not result In bringing the dohato to n conclu sion night sessions will bo.nroposod. But If the friends of silver Insist upon n quorum being present constantly , the effect of early meeting and night Hessians will to eomo extent - tent bo counteracted , an instead of fatiguing the silver men only , practically the entire semite would suffer alike. Substantially the entire duy In tno senate wns consumed by Mr. Stewart , republican , of Nevada , who took positive ground , against the repeal of the Sherman act until silver was rcmonctizcd. The vote of the senate SB yeas to 'J8 nays to proceed to the con sideration of executive business this after noon was the llrst set-back the repeal men have thus fur sustained in the senate.

Poffcr took the lloor and concluded his remarks in opposition to the .repeal. Ha was followed by Stewart on the sumo side. Rotorring to the Sherman law , Mr. Stowur.t said that notwithstanding violations of it by the executive department it had added $150,000,000 , of legal tender money to the currency of the country. Thpro was'no evidence that the Sherman uct had up to this time in dieted any Injury upon the country. Mr. Aldrich tried to interrupt Mr. Stewart , but the latter replied tartly that ho declined to ileld. "Of course , It Is very acgr.ivutlng , " ho said , "to huvo the faoU known. " The banker panic , ho said , was Inaugur ated to force congress to demonetize silver. The president In his message failed to In form congress that the apprehended evils which produced the panla existed only in the Imagination of the bondholders , the banker nnd thcli1 newspaper organs , who hud cre ated the present distress for their own sel- llsh and sordid purposes. Continuing. Mr. Stewart said that Mr. Sherman ut thut time reported the liouno substitute from the linanco committee with , n substitute for section 10 , which provided for a trudo dollar of 420 grams. Will Force Them tu Attaint. The Nevada senator hero diverged.-from his written remarks to observe' that ho did not ma It o the i > oliitut this t line , inasmuch aa ho was speaking , but that ho gave notlco that horeuftor when others were speaking who could giyn facts and information which was so much needed by .aonutors who spend their time in the cloak room that u quorum of senators would bo in tholr seats when business Is ilono during thu prcicnt soisiou. Mr. Pugh , democrat , of Alabama , now sud denly moved u cull of the scnute , us it was manifest , ho said , that n quoruni wus not present. The cull developed the presence of nfty-slx senators and Mr. Stewart resumed nls speech. Hu said that , notwithstanding all the old amendments reported by the ilnanco com mittee to thu house substitute were recorded In the Glebe , no mention was made of the substitute for the lUth suction. The leadIng - Ing members of the two houses wore Ignorant of the fact thul the .silver dollar was omitted , Tliu senate and the country must judge , said Mr , Siownrt , whether a- fair opportunity was. afforded the members of iho two iiouaes to know of the omission of thu bllvor dollar from the list of coins. No reference was made in the debate In the fctmuto to the omission of the silver dollar. Hu said the fact that Mr. Sherman , who did BO much to secure u recommendation of the gold standard by the Paris conference , intvoducod in IbilS a bill with a harmless title adopting the gold standard , claiming thut the gold Htundurd wus nn American Iden , mul that he hud uhurgo of the mint bill from beginning to end und failed to In form the sonata that It demonetised silver , wus most astonishing , It Itumuliiuil Hcurot. The legislation was not demanded by the people : they knew nothing of it. It re- mulnud a profound secret , so far us the musses of the people were concerned , for moro ihiin two years. Mr. Hour , republican , of Massachuiotts , attempted to title a question , but Mr. Stoiv- urt declined tu bo interrupod ; ho objected to the senator from Massachusetts putting u lot of trash in hla speech. [ Laughter. ] Coming lo the iccent election Mr. Stewart suld thu cont'/it ' between the two great par- tics wus u siium battle over the tariff and the force bill to secure power to bo used for another und very different purposo. There is an honest remedy , ho mid , for the present condition , and thut Is to rcstoro silver , nnd If thut cannot bo done , utilise thu bllver in the treasury by issuing silver cor- tlllcuteB , The dishonest remedy to relieve the distress is to puss the repeal bill and ratlfv und sanctify the Infamous uct of 187a. thus fusienlmr u perpetual gold standard upon the country. The creditor clans hud already doubled the vulue of gold , und by so doing had doubled the obligations of the debtors. This was revolutionary. It wus dangerous for capital to en gage In revolution , nnd ho appealed to the senate today to listen lo the voice of this jieoplo ; to turn n deaf ear to n subsidized , press nnd bankorb'petitions oxtortcd from their trembling debtors.
