WASIIINGTOS CITY May was the subject of senatorial eloquence again yesterday uiA Jones of Nevada was the principal figure in the discussion As soon the clerks desk was cleared of routine business Jones took the floor to complete speech He began by saying that if the fefrs expressed by some that free coin age ol silver would drive gold from the country for every gold dollar that left a dollar would be in circulation But gold would not go and it it could be kept only on condition of debasing diver it ought to go The total amount of silver and gold in the worlds stock was about equal both possessed in common and neither in any higher degree than the other all the qualities which are recog nized as necessary in money The purpose in using both had always been to preserve society from the result of accidents in the production of either and the effect of de monetization of silver was to defeat that beneficent purpose Redemption in Bullion He opposed the idea of redeeming treas ury notes in bullion on the ground that when they were so redeemed the monetary I u service pension bill which the senates is not The Houae Bill Inadequate Counting the number of disabled sol diers in the soldiers Ijomes and elee mosynary institutions there are at least 25000 disabled and dependent Union sol diers recipients of public charity The rate off3 a month approaches nearly the minimum of subsistence while a month undoubtedly falls far below it If it be deemed expedient to allow a pension of per month simply because a person is disabled that is no reason why H a month be taken from the dependent sol diers Cost of thoService Pension A service pension should not be involved in the matter now upder consideration which is relief to the to the Such a bill requires most seri ous discussion Estimates prepared by Capt Ainsworth shdw that the approxi mate aggregate cost of a service pension upon a basis of sixtytwo years as the age limit will be Upon a of sixty years the cost would be 829 Of this amount must be paid before the end of the year 1015 and the average annual payment will be 523732 These estimates are materially greater than those of the house committee but the senate committee adopt them be cause they seem to based on valid reasons HOPES They Are Anchored on a Writ of Error STATUS OF THE CHICAGO OASES BUTTERWORTHNOT SATISFIED Ho Much Fault wltli McKinley Tariff BUI WASHINGTON CITY May in the senate a bill was reported favorably for a public building at Madison Ind to cost The pension committee re ported a disagreement to the house substi tute for the dependent pension bill and a conference was ordered Jones of Nevada then completed his speech on the silver bill and was followed by Jones of Arkan sas in opposition to the pending bill of the senate finance committee A took place in short colloquial discussion circulation would be contracted and the which Icgalls Allison and other Repub putting of bullion on the market would licans intimated that they would not vote not make tip to the country for the loas of i for the bill the antitrust bill was recom money from its circulation He expressed mitted to the judiciary committee and entire confidence in the honesty of purafter a short executive session the senate pose and conscientiousness of motive of adjoiimed the present secretary of the treasury but The house committee on commerce

treasury notes and thus the United States treasury might in effect become a mere purchasing agent for the East India company or for syndi atea of English merchants wanting bull on cheap iu order to make their pay iients to India The SenatorH Peroration He concluded as follows I predict Mr resident that the restoration of silver to ts birthright will mark an epoch in the listory this republic It will increase he wages of labor and the prices of the noclucts labor it will reduce the price of bonds and other forms money futures twill lighten but not inequitably the burden ol mortgages it will increase argely though not unjustly the debtpay ing and taxpaying power of the people It will loosen the grasp ot the creditor from the neck o the debtor It will lift the bowed head of labor it will hush the threnody of toil It will in augurate the true renais sance of prosperity without which in dustry learning science literature art nre but apples of Sodom Applause Put Through u Catechism Blair askid Jones if he meant to be un derstood as stating that a fall in prices of commodities was an absolute demonstra tion of the increased value of money He Blair supposed that the fall in prices re sulting from protective tariff was bene ficial and was not an indication of an in crease in the value of money Jones replied that the tariff if it had the offect of reducing prices did not do by reason of a certain percentage being im posed upon imported goods but by reason of the stimulus which it gave to home pro duction and to inventions Never Hcuvil of a 72Ccnt Dollar McPhorson asked whether if silver dol lars worth 73 cents were coined without limitation thus establishing n silver the holders of gold being held inthe country would not absolutely with draw it from circulation Jones said that he hardly knew what the senator meant by a silver basis or by a 72 cent dollar He had never seen a 72ceut dollar the senators argu ment is that after we are on a silver basis AS wo certainly would be there would be fit inequality in the value of the money Because the money would be all iu silver no inequality between it and gold Withdrawal of Gold a Bogy aicPhersou Certainly net because there would be no gold in circulation could use your shortlegged dollar in payment of debts but when you come to make new obligations you would have to do so at prices equal to the difference be tween the value oE gold and silver Joues said that he had never heard of a shortlegged dollar All that talk about the withdrawal ot gold from circulation was a bogy to frighten people With the exception of a few millions on the Pacific const there was absolutely no gold in cir culation in the United States There was 60 little gold in circulation that it would be no exaggeration to say that there were millions of people in the United States who had never seeu a gold coin Who ITiithers the Bill Jones of Arkansas said that the bill was all wrong that the public did not care what the bullion value of silver was as the public would receive no benefit from the price The result of the govern ment buying per month would be to cause the price to rise to the point where the government would have to sus pend purchases He favored an amend nent providing for the unlimited coinage of silver whenever the price reached the limit in the grains for one dollar He referred to the bill as the bill of Re publican caucus and this brought Teller ind other Bepublicans to their feet with the statement that it was not such a bill but merely the bill ot the senate ftnanci committee Upon Jones saying that al the Kcpublicans in the senate would vote tor it Ingalls Allison and others declared that was not so The bill then went over the tolls fixed by the war office After some routine business was transacted the tariff debate was resumed and Butter worth spoke at length in favor of the gen eral principles of protection but against what he considered the inequalities of the bill He also advocated reciprocity with Canada Butterworths speech was ap plauded by the Democrats He partlcu larly objected to the duty on tin plate and said the bill would enable certain classes ot manufacturers to pockat millions in A number of amendments reduc g 3g duties were offered and rejected and after considering thirteen of the 156 pages of the bill the house adjourned Of Interest to Beer WASHINGTON CITV May The senate committee on finance has acted favorably upon two bills of interest to manufac turers and exporters of beer iu this coun try The first authorizes a change in the present law so as to permit the transfer of beer from the brewery to the bottling houses by a pipe line or other conduit for bottling purposes only The second meas ure authorizes the export of beer in bond and does away with the payment of draw backs by the government after Jan 11891 except upon beer exported prior to that date Uritish Oak at Washingtons Tomb WASHINGTON CITY May the Prince of Wales was in this country years ago he planted an oak tree at the tomb of Washington at Mount Vcrnon The tree died a few years ago Yesterday Sir Jul ian Pauncefote the British minister planted the seed of an oak tree almost in the identical spot where the oak planted by the Prince of Wales stood The seed was sent over by the Prince of Wales A number of distingishecl people were present and Sir Julian Pauncefote made n speech appropriate to the occasion Ben Butler Retained and Has Boubt of tor a Writ of Habeas Corpui in Behalf of FUlden Schwab and SfeebeTo Be Made to Judge of Expectations of the PrlsoneM Connie CHICAGO May have been made to attempt to secure the release from the penitentiary of Samuel Fieldeu Michael Schwab and Oscar Xeebe by a method heretofore not hinted at in the case In a short time an application will be made to Judge Jresham for a writ of habeas corpus on the ground that the prisoners are detained without due process of law That is that they were not in court when sentence of death was pronounced upon them by the state supreme court Gen Butler is retained in thecase and says he has no doubt the move will be suc cessful History of the Case After the sentence of death was passed upon the condemned Anarchists and Neebe was doomed to spend fifteen years in the penitentiary the case was appealed to the supreme court where the finding of the lower court with the sentence of death for Spies Parsons Lingg Fischer Engcl Schwab and Fieldeu was affirmed The prisoners were not taken before the su preme court to hear this affirmation of their sentences and their lawyers were not even notified to be present The claim was made that this was a breach of their con stitutional rightsand that the eonstitu tiou even went so far as to say that a sen tence of death rendered in the absence of the prisoners was not due process of law In the Nations Supreme Court The claim was not made in time to save Lingg from selfdestruction or Spies Par sons Fischer or Engel from the gallows Schwab and Fieldeu would have shared the fate of the last four liad not the gov ernor interfered with his commutation of their sentences to imprisonment for life But finally the claim was pushed to the 0 S supremecourfc and an application was made for a writ of error on the grounds that the surviving felons should have been before tha Illinois supreme court when their sentences were affirmed The chief judicial tribunal intimated that the point was well taken but held that it could not go back of the record which showed that the defendants were actually in court in spite of the wellknown fact that they were not Amendment of the Record If the record were amendmed the su preme court said it could then consider the matter In the March term of 1888 a motion was made in the state supreme court to amend the record and May 16 1889 the motion was denied on the ground that it was not necessary that the prison ers should be before the court when the sentence was affirmed Furthermore it was held that the statutes gave the court up right to amend the record This an swer was taken to the federal supreme court where it was argued that in spite of the statement of the state supreme court the general practice was to amend the record where evident mistakes existed The court finally granted a writ of error which will be heard by October Interpretation of State Zaws This writ of error is on the point of the state supreme courts refusal to amend the record but if the United States supreme court decides this to bo error it will doubt less go into the whole matter The federal supreme court his held that it is the judge of the laws of the state and it is not for the state supreme court to decide whether the statutes gave it power to do a certain thing and it has overruled the iutrpretn tion given by the state supreme courts fre quently A DASTARDLY MURDER MARRIED THREE TIMES And Finally Concluded to Skip Xnra One BAY CITY Mich May Hart sleep fourteen years ago was married to a woman
