That was his dread about the bill and one of the stronp reasons why he should noi for it single section of the bill conferred and wia intended to confer a discretion oil the secretary of the treas ur> bj which he could destroy dibhonor and de grade siU er as money The best evidence that that was the purpose of the bill, was to be found in Its advocates He was amazed at the hardihood of senators taking hack all that thej had said and done and voted within the last three weeks V majority of seventeen in tho Senate had oted for the free coinage of silver and that majority had been treated as chaff bj the conference committee It was a rtav of shaine and degradation when a majority or seventeen in the senate was wiped out the report of a conference commit tte and when the senate waq aslced to recede to retrograde to RO back ami to leave the whole question to tlie hostile treasury department Ho should not iote for the bill Ho would vote for an> bill thit bettered the present law but lie agreed with the senator Irom Texas Mr C >ke, that tin. conference I ill was not an improvement on the present Uw It was more ague than tlie present law more uuctrtam e liiort- n to the secret irj and c insequent j iuvoh eu the interests of the people in more douot COX Ml MOBI VL t The discussion was interrupted at 3 o clock and tho bill over without action till tomorrow tho pissing from thit sul ject to the memorial exercises in respect to the mem of the late Repre entative S S Cox of "Nev Y rli which had i etn made a special or ler fur this hour after being several times iouslj lost POllLll Mr Hiscocfc ottered a resolution declaring that the senate had with prolonnd sorrow the announcement ol the death of Mr Cox and tendering to his family an assurance of s> mpatliy in its sad bereavement and he eulogized Mr Cox s DEMOCRATIC SEATS whose charming character ind accomplishments Mr oorhees spoke of Mr Cox as one life was free from stain speck or blemish brave man mentally morally and phyairallj a man who laughed dinger in the fice ctibd the law of whose bemj was liberality He wound up in a very brilliant eulogium with the apostrophe the asaoci ite and delight of my earlier and later jears the joy and promise of every hour spent together laith ful and beloved friend of a lifetime farewell hail and farewell till v.e meet again Mr Sherman paid hia tribute to the private and public life of Mr Cox and was at tines iffocted aa to be forced to pause until ho mas tered his emotion Messrs DKon and Evnrts also testified to their sense of loss for the departed st itcsmrn and then the resolution adopted and as a further mark of resi ect tht- senate idjourned JOHNNY T LIKE IT.
