Silver Bill to the Senate Thnt IfPiwsed Will Make tlio ColtlWater Men Happy Insidious AH Sin Once Alliance Currency Scheme WASHINGTON Crrr May the house was discussing an amendment to the tariff 11 yesterday McMillin ot Ten nessee ttlluilod to n Mr Campbell of Pitts burg a gloss manufacturer asking protec tion from fonigii labor while he was charged with importing foreign labor in violation of contract labor law Bergen ot New Jersey ventured to say that Campbell was u Democrat Byuurn of Indiana said that or the con trary Campbell was au ardent supporter of Mr Harrison aud denounced Campbell as a perjurer Campbell had coma before the ways aud means committee and had held a consultation with the gentleman from West Virginia Wilson and himself and then had gone away and made an affi davit which was false from beginning to end and had Campbell ever come into his Bynums district he would be in the cell of a prison today llaynn tltc Glass Man Bayne said that he would take Camp bells word as soon as he would take that of the gentleman from Indiana and he knew them both Campbell was the chosen representative of alarge organiza tion of reputable working men and any insult or indignity offered to him was of ferod to them Wilson of West Virginia confirmed what the gentleman from Indiana had said In the public press and on every gtump ho had felt it his duty to denounce Campbell as a perjurer McKlnley Given IJynum the Ile In the course of some further remarks Byuum said that the committee on and means in the its bill had closed the doors of the Capitol against tho labor of the country but admitted the manufacturers The majority of the com mittee raised the curtain and peeped out to see who was there Flower of New York bora testimony to the fact that tha committee hud heard all industries that had requested a hearing McKinley tiaid that the imputation of the gentleman from Indiana was false He did not permit any man to impute to the committee any bad motives or any lack of courtesy to the minority To this rather direct imputation Bynum made no reply and the matter was dropped Teller Talks of Silver Money Teller took up tho cudgels for silver in the senate yesterday and speaking of Secretary Windoms bill ho said that noth ing would suit the secretary of the treas ury but a treasury note payable in a com modity It was the first time that the store system which prevailed in min ing and manufacturing regions was pro posed to be applied to the treasiiry depart ment of the United States Nobody knew better than ihe men who stood behind the scheme that it would not put silver to par and nobody was more determined than those men that it should not go to par Not Satisfied with the Senate Bill As to the finance committees bill it pro Tided for the purchase of 84500000 worth of silver every month For what To he converted into money Oh no not to be coined into money but to be deposited in the treasury the United States as the credit on which the treasury notes were to be issued And yet the senate was told that the bill was in the interest of the use of silver as money and that it ought to be satisfactory to the silver men as it would raise the price of silver He had no doubt that it would raise the price of silver to extent Must Be Made a Money Metnl But if it was desired to put the price of silver back to what it was in 1873 its money function would have to be recog nized It would have to be treated as a money metal Tfie government might buy silver and drop it into the sea and sil ver would not be put back to par unless it was recognized as money Did the pend ing bill propose to use it as money On the contrary its fundamental idea was as in the other bill that silver was metal and nothing else oest currency iii the world und the system would in time include all the products of labor not covered by patents Trouble with Ah Sin WASHINGTON CITY secre i tary of the treasury sent to the senate yes terday a report of Datus E Coon aChi nese

May dep uty United States marshals arrived here Tuesday night for the purpose of arresting Mayor Cottrell and his marshal Mitchell on the charge of assaulting Customs Col lector Pinkerton and interfering with him in the prosecution of government business This action of the government authorities is the result of a long series of outrages perpetrated by Cottrell in most of which he has been aided and abetted by Marshal Mitchell A genuine reign of terror has existed here The United States officers succeeded in arresting Mitchell but Cottioll was apprised of their coming and is now in hiding They are now on his trail however Went Gunninsr for Flukerton A week ago Cottrell met Pinkerton and asked him to open the custom house to get some things he had left there Pinker ton refused as it was after office Cottrell then threatened Pinkertons 116 and Cottrell gave notice that if he ap peared on the streets of Cedar Keys he would shoot him Pinkerton did not leave the house for a day or two and Cottrell tried to persuade u negro to go in and pull him out The negro refused md was beaten by Cottrell Mayor Cot trolls Bail Record For about a year Cottrell has been a ter ror to the citizens here He has compelled a negro to beat a telegraph operator he has threatened to thrash women whose husbands had incurred his displeasure he has kept men locked up in jail for days at a time for no cause whatever has paraded tho streets with a loaded shot gun threat ening to kill anybody who came in his way has shot at the lighthouse keeper in the street has cut another man with a jack knife and has actually forced a reelection as mayor because it was worth a mans life to vote against him Those who know Cottrell best say he will never be taken alive and it is rumored that he will come to town and attempt the rescue of Mar shal Mitchell TCoodlery in Quebec NEWYORK May Heralds Que bec special says that a big fraud lias been unearthed at Quebec in which the prov ince has been

that Carlisle gained a de cided advantage In this ballot he received 39 votes ftrar more than his highest previous number while Lindsay had 23 and Knott 10 It will require 59 vptes to elect Mm so that it is plain that if a combination can bo formed he can be defeated but Ms friends are con fident of his election and outside opinion is in the same direction The Kailway Adopt Strikes HOCHESTJER N Y May general convention of the Order of Railway Con CHICAGO May government of the United States Is a political not a busi ness machine said Assistant Postmaster General Clarkson in reply to a question on civil service reform put to him by a re porter as he sat in his room at the Audi torium hotel I know that there is a gen eral belief that the reverse is true the moat practical politician of Harrisons ad ministration continued after a moments reflection But the belief is incorrect To my mind were it true it would be one of the worst things that could happen to our government Tne genius of our polit ical progress lies in the active interest taken in our government by the people Must Keep Up the Interest this Interest should be kept alive and aroused to an even greater extent than at present is most essential Essay ists who enjoy formulating theories for an ideal government admit that their cher ished system can come only through the political activity of the people Now to keep the people active court must be made to their personal individual interest liet them consider that there is not only public but personal advantage to be gained Then they will work And for working they will be rewarded Horrible to Contemplate Then jrou do not think this country would be better off with such u civil serv ice as England possesses Most assuredly I do not What Perpet uate an officeholding class of which every individual member upon arriving at the age of GO shall receive a pension Never incentive would there be for suijh a class to work What aim in life would be theirs save to hang on by the very eaiiiest method possible Their ambition would die for want of nourishment and their value to the country decrease Theirs would be nn easy comfortable existence with a good salary and a certain pension attached for which the cobbler who sits at bis bench all clay and earns thereby must help pay Steady Work Not Good for Eni I believe that continued service in the government employ is bad for any man and after a certain period all the public servants should be sent back to the people to renew themselves I believe that each office should have a fixed tenure to pre serve the respect of the occupant and if the occupant desires a second term let him show by his work that he is entitled to it Wouldnt Abolish Examinations Would you abolish civil service exam nations No Every man should be examined But he should be examined by the official in whose employ he c to be Is such a principle not good in business Is not an employer more nble to ascertain the fitness of nn applicant to perform the class of work that belongs to his department thau a man who not only has no interest in but no knowledge of what is required in the department in question Is not your post master here better fitted to examine men or the work the performance of which he is held resp nsible than the men who compose the civil service commission in Washington said Mr Clarkson Trtth an emphatic gesture Patriotism the Incentive Do you think Mr Clarkson that the business of our government ia carried on so satisfactorily as that of England where official position is not affected by change of administration Yes much better The business of our government is transacted more accurately and at a lower percentage of loss than any other public or private business in exist ence And why the speaker askud ab ruptly Because of the fact that there is a rotation in office because it is patriotism more than money seeking that actuates the men who take an interest in our polit ical life Souue Cases in Point Why were this not so would there be in public office at a salary of a few thousand dollars a year men who in private busi ness would be worth aad in receipts of 125000 and S50000 Would men stay in congress for when five and ten times tho sum would be theirs did they lemain at home It is because they take a pride in their work and in following aud de veloping their ideas that they seek public place During the war men who were worth ori an average fl500 a yew at home went to the front for ti3 a month Why Because of their public A Pointer tor Hutchlnton You speak

notified its corrajjxradents that it would suspend payments The are from to 400000 with no as sets question why his bank and packing house could not be run by the public like the postoffice said that should he run them so loosely and extravagantly he would fail in a year spoke offhand and without know ing of what he was said Mr Clarkson Why sir the postoffice oi Chicago is run oh a system which adopted in his business would increase income many fold The postoffice of Chicago is not run at a loss It makes an immense profit Mr Clarkson then said that notwithstand ing the loss on many lines the postal busi ness costs the country only about ttrest of civilization in that cottatry is due to Englands efforts the Teuton Occupying the Land While England has nothing to show for the millions of money and oceans of blood devoted to Africa the Germans are leak ing themselves masters of the most fruit ful portions of the land at an outlay posi tively insignificant as compared with what England has sunk and it Is not surprising that a man who has made sacrifices and endured the hardships that Stanley has ill Englands interests should become exas jierated at the opposition and apathy dis played by those who should support him CAUGHT THE TORIES SHORT The Irish of the Win a Bather Barren Victory LONDON May the house of com mons yesterday Fox Nationalist moved the second reading of the
