tho intcrosli of civilization in the interest of progress in the interest of the whole human race He criticised the Windom bill nnd said he could not see what the purpose and object of that scheme was That scheme mot tho approval of tho gold monomctnlists everywhere and that was reason enough to warrant the suspicion that it was a Trojan horse Of the bill reported from the Finance Commit tee he said it was founded on the same system of financial policy and there was the same philoso phy in it but it did not propose to use silver as fundamental idea was as in the other bill that silver was a metal and nothing else Teller went on to speak of tho silver plank in the National as promising full recognition of silver as money and said the plank was inserted in recognition of the universal demand of the country for the use of silver as money and he would insisist upon its observ ance whether it parted him from the Administra tion or not Did the pending bill he recognize silver in
