Stevenson, democratic candidate for congress in dis- trict, epoko to the people of npon tho political issues in the pro- sent campaign on Saturday night. Tho Bloomington of- Monilay morning, which ii a republi- can paper gives tho following synopsis of the speech. Mr. Stevenson opened hiH remarks debt, cannot in its present form extend beyond tho payment of that debt. Houco the question arises: Shall the debt be paid or made per petual, as a foundation for our na- tional banking system 1 Of our na tionnl dobt near fivo hundred and fifty millions represented by !5i per cent bonds, arc now payable ill tho option of tho government. Two hundred and (ifty millions of 4J per cent, bonds are payable after tho year 1890, while tho residue of nu tional indoLtxlnesR, represented by 4 per cent, bunds luid aggregating about seven hundred and forty millions, will become payable by tho year 1907. Now, what tthull bo the policy of our government Shall the national debt bo fitudeil and virtually be mado permanent, as is the na- tional debt of England? or shall the surplus revenues of the government be applied towards its Upon this question I stand now, iis I have in tho past, in favor of apply- ing every dollar of surplus revenues toward tho payment of our bonded debt. I can hardly believe that the American pooplu with surplus re venues amounting to one hundred und fifty millions of dollars por annum, will over consent to tho establishment of a permanent dobt. The payment, tien, of the national debt, as wo are ablo to moot it from our surplus revenues, and as it ma- tures, will nocobbitate tho retirement of tho national buuk circulation. These are facts that must besquuroly mot. National banks as banks of issue cannot onduro permanently unless wo make permanent our nu tional dobt. They may continue to exist, performing all tho functions of banks having _tho same powers and privileges of "other banking cor porations; but with tho full payment of our bonded dobt, their circulation must of necessity be retired. From this there can bo no escape. Wo huvo recently passed through a depression in business almost uu paralleled iu our history. have witnessed a shrinkage in nil values, a general paralysis of business, grout 18G1, the beginning of tho war. Th "Morrill tariff bill" was then adppte roviden, First, Against all discriminations n freight rates charges between ndividuals, and requires like ser- icos to bo rendered to all persons or like eompensfttioii. Second, It jjrohibitB tho allow nco of rebates and drawbacks in all ason as one of the means of prevent- ,g unjust discriminations. Third, It prohibits tho pooling of roight by different railroads so as to ecuro to the general public the ben- fits of competition in freight charges IK! us u means of limiting and ro -raining tho monopoly powers of lilroads. Mr. Stevenson next passed to a dis iission of the necessity for civil ser ice reform in the government, and Etdr showing that the one hundred nd two thousand foderal office alders were selected because of par service rendered, und comment- ng npon the evils which necessarily ssult from such a system, declared lat the only teat for employment uder the hou- sty and efficiency. This position as sustained by extracts from the )eochea of Senator Davis and Dan- 1 Webster. He also referred at omo length to the Hubbell as ossmont scheme by which 2 per ent. of tho salaries of tho employes E tho government were demanded or political purposes. This enor- nous fund ho said was intended to e used to control the elections. His .rcular was simply a demand ou the ierks in the departments to pay this ssossment or surrenc er their posi- ious. Such a scheme to raise a cor uption fund to control elections iiorita tho hearty condemnation of very lover of his country. Tho poaker then closed by referring to je dangers which at different per- ods of our history have threatened jo poace of our country, by our wde of electing tho president and ice president of tho United States. le agrood with tho statement of Mr. JontoD, mado fifty years ago, that lie great poril wo had to apprehend vas n disputed succession in the Dresidoncy. Three times in our his- ory has this question arisen 1800 ictween Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Burr; n 1824, between Mr. Jackson and ilr. Adams; and in 187C, between Mr. Hayes and Mr. Tilden, and that even n the lust presidential contest the 'ote of the stato of Georgia was not lountod because of an informality, iravo complications might have wison had the result depended upon he vote of tho state of Georgia as it lid upon that of Louisiana in the ireceding election. Ho agreed with ilr. Benton that tho federal constitu- ,ion should bo so amended as to pro- for the abolition of the electoral colleges and the election of our chief magistrate by tho direct vote of the )ooplo. opera, Houuae- _o---- Wi: KB I) AY OC TO HE It 4TH, Fourth HOiibon of the Klerlric biicceBH1 Louis Aldrich AND Ciias.T.

Tbo present congress, after virtually abdicating its powers and declaring its inability to grap- ple with this question by appointing a commission of nine persons outside of that body to report what changes were necessary in tho taritf, passed a bill by which they increased the tax 50 per cent on knit Roods.
