Thea went to Dr. Kevin ef American church, and said was a novitiate aun, and that then was a vast Catholic conspiracy, with Mgr.

ALBANY, May Governor Jones and State Engineer Began, tbe ad- visory commission, created by tbe capitol appropriation bill, have ia consulta- tion with Capitol Commissioner Perry, and authorised him to proceed with the work as soon as practicable. The plans te That EOket, Which Bitterly Opposed by Ktaertty Teller Speech ea the Silver BUI Other May 16. -The senate yes- terday resumed consideration of the silver bffl, and Mr. Teller continued nil argo- men! He said there were two features of the bill which should be amended If the Mil was to perform the twe things which ita friends purposed to accomplish by it that was to raise the price of xilver and to give to the country an increased circula- tion. ft was absolutely necessary that the treasury notes provided fer in the bill should have the possible money function. If of principal Juiies of money (the u. was denied it, depreciai .on :.nd the ston of silver purchases uoder the bill would be isrvited. He did not denv that the paaaiof ef the law would put the price of silver up. Its very introduction had that effect. There was a party, not in the United States alone, trat all over the world, that held the of the world, that took toll from all quarters, that levied tribute an all enterprises and that wan arrayed agaiast sUver money. For seventeen yean that party had held the whole civil- ued world. It had itt seat in Europe but it had ita influence here. It had added one-third to the natioDid debt of the I'nited States by legislation, and had added an equal amount to the slate municipal and individual debts. And did anybody be- lieve that these ready to bodies restored very soon. The official list j prepared by Mr. Perry for the remodelling of .eetion tbe under the assembly chamber, have been in the main settled upon. The plans oantemplatte the fitting up of the Golden Corridor in committee rooms for the use the legislature and the con- nection af the eastern and western sections of the outer corridor, by carrring that corridor through the second division court of appeals ream. The mite of rooms now occupied by the second division will be re- modelled and refurnished, and made ready fer tbe occupancy of the court by the time the conn reconvenes in the early pan of next October. of those imprisoned is as Ellis D.

GET WRQMC SORT HIMNEYS6 m CALLED PEARL TOP ft "ACBtTh-fcCO.. surrender their vantage to adept a finan- cial system that would relieve the tax- ridden debtors ef this etrantry and the world and pot them back on the plane where there were in 1S73? Mr. Bntler invited Mr. Teller to give his idea of the effect of free coinage on silver :.n internal monetary arrangements. Mr. Teller aaid he would do so. Every- body had to admit, he said, that tbe pro- posed bill waa a temporary affair. Not member ef the finance committee would claim that it waa a permanent thing. The bill was a half-way scheme. It afforded no relief whatever except in making a special market for silver tn ex- cess of the present government demands of a month. Mr. Hear inquired whether, even with- out the demonetization of silver in 1S73 its price would not have fallen. Mr. Teller replied that if the Cnited States had remained on the double stand- ard aulifthe detuonizatioa of silver in Germany had brought down the price of silver, aad if the latin unkm had restricted silver on account of the effect of German silver on the market the mints of the Called States would have been open im- mediately to the ceinage ef silvar, and every silver ewuer could have taken his silver to the mint and had it converted into legal tender money, against which there wu then at leaf, so prejudice any- where. He quoted Allison. Hume aad other historians for tbe assert ion that the decline of Rome was to be attributed to the lack ef money, and that "The Dark Ages" bad naulted from the same cause Mr. Blair aaked Mr. Teller to state con- nection with the fall of in agricul- tural products thst there had been no rel- ative increase in quantity. Mr. Teller did make that statement and added that the trouble was not one ef over-prodaction but of nader-prodnction. Mr Allison asked him to state, in that same connection, that the price which farmer obtained for his produce no would pay for as much of the things he bought, as the higher which he eb- tained formerly. Mr. Teller admitted that to some things which the farmer bought this was true. but be added that there were sotne things which had not fallen and which the farmer had to pay. His taxes had not fallen; the interest on his mortgage had not fallen. In conclusion Mr. Teller said some sena- tors might be governed by fear of the ex- ecutive veto, but he would follow the dic- tates of his judgment. He believed it erery senator would do this they would have a free coinage act. Mr. Coke next addressed the senate in favor of a free and unlimited coinage of silver. He could not support the bill as reported from tbe finance committee. It discriminated against silver in leaving to the secretary of the treasury right to determine how much of the silver te be purchased should be coined into money; and aa the secretary thought there was al- ready too ranch silver coined it wai sun that with that discretion in the secretary not another dollar would be coined. At the close of Mr. Coke's speech the silver bill went over till to-day, and after a brief secret session the senate adjourned; IS THE HOUSE. WASHISGTOS, May the house yes- terday Mr. McKinley of Ohio reported a resolution providing that hereafter the house shall meet at 11 o'clock: that after the reading of the journal and tbe disposal of conference reports the house shall go into committee of the whole on the tariff bill: that the bill shall be read through commencing with paragraph 111 and shall be open to amendments on any pan of the bill following paragraph 110, and that on Wednesday next at 12 noon the bill with pending amendments shall be reported to the house. The resolution occasioned a long debate and severe criticism of the majority mem- bers of the ways and means by the Demo- crats for reporting the resolution that the tariff bill shall be reported to tbe house on Wednesday Tbe resolution wan finally 139; nays, 93. Mr. Bkrant of Georgia criticised the ma- jority of the committee on rnles for re- porting the resolution. The majority of tbe bouse had adopted a code of rules which recognized the right of debate in tbe committee of the whole. It had given tbe committee power to limit debate. It had provided that 100 should constitute a quorum, and yet after all these restraints thrown over the consideration of a bill in committee it was proposed to set saide the rule governing the committee Before the UU had been considered at all the fiat had four days would be per- mitted for general debate nndftr the five minute rule. very announcement had repressed debate.
