of tbo result wore Oaten arid iiogor Q Mills Blount and McOroury Tho galleries woro woll illlod On tho Democratic side wit Mark Twain his bushy head now turned silver gray inclined to wards tho oratorical combatants In tho ladies gallery sat Mrs Senator Woleott surrounded bya bevy of friends anxiously awaiting tho expected onslaught of her bridegroom husband on the East and tho Administration Every Senator in tbo eity was In bis seat Every reporter who could leave the House peered down from above the head of tho VtooPresident Iiroo coinage was In tho air It was known that tho persistent attitude of Senator Toller against any compromise had broken tho ranksof tho Ad ministrations supporters To and fro between his own seat and Senator Tellers ran Senator Spoonor Iu a final ap peal for the support of tho freo coinage men for tho KocdWJndomIIuiTlsoti compromise We shall carry free quickly re marked Senator Teller and Mr Spoonor and tho hopes of tho compromisers subsided Into tho Sonato stalked Senator Ingalls clad In a closelybuttoned gray frock coat tho Inevitable carnation pink In his button bole and a roll of manuscript In in bis hand Out from the lobby rolled Senator Woleott rotund form outlined behind a new white voat and enveloped in a brand now cutaway and carefully oroasod trousers Ifo nervously arranged a mass ot loose slips on his desk and drank several glasses of water while tho drowsy round of running busl noHM proceeded Meantime the galleries filled rapidly Messengers and clerks slipped In tho doors and lined tho walls Congressmen came In hurriedly from the House side and found comfortable Pruclon tho White House secretary peered through a door and retired rapidly A few minutes before 1 the Silver bill was laid before tho House ana THIS JClNAfj TEST of strength began Woleott rose to hlsi foot grasped a white curnbrto handkerchief thrust his hand Into hla right pocket and bo pan Tt was Senator Wolcotts ruuldon ef fort but his opening sentences showed the Sonato that a now orator was pro Renting himself for Its favorable consideration His voice which easily filled every portion of tho groat cham ber fully under control beautifully modu lated and as oloar as a boll was tho Instant passport to attention Tho Senators turned in their seats and faced the Speaker Tho galleries craned thoir nocks toward the roar end whoro the orator stood dealing his bolts at Rastern superciliousness and assailing in cutting sarcasm an Administration with which it is ffdll known ho is not in harmony There said Senator Woleott In sootn to be llttlo oxouso for my TOttlng tho time of tho Sonato upon tho bill under discussion oven under tho shortened rule contemplated for further debate within which I shall endeavor to conllno my re marks Tho subject bus boon practically exhausted Indeed until tho Senator from Alabama almost at tho close of debate opened so ably a fresh fiold and built a now bulwark for the white uiotal I had supposed nothing now could bo said upon tlio subject jiiul I havo had tho pood fortune to bo asso ciated with a colleague who almostsineo we were admitted to the sisterhood of States has stood as an exponent of tho views of his intelligent constituency upon this groat subject and who has loft nothing pertinent unsaid Wo seem to hnvo fallen upon ovll days where politics are rated at a commercial value alone whoro fealty to party depends on whether tho prosperity of the locality in which tho voter resides Is to bo best fostered by competition with other countries or by largo and prohibitory duties which shall exclude such foreign competition The prosperity of tho mountain States and Ter ritories of tho West must over rest chiefly on THE TKODUCXS OF ITS MINES wo who uro loss benefited than any other portion of tne Uhlon by ft high protective taaiff arc asked to stand each session by tho duties which the East formulates and when wo ask that our silver shall bo also pro tected and have behind us the wishes and desires of a vast majority of tho pooplo of rho United States we are called speculators and told that onr idoas aro tboso of a dis satisfied and visionary people I wonder how long tho Republican major ity in Kbodo Island for instance would last if tho Interests upon which Its pooplo depend for thoir livelihood woro no longer fostered and protected by tho Government The worm of Democracy scorns already to have made some headway in that commonwealth possibly because our duties aro not yot high enough and how long does tho Senator from Khode Island expect the miners and farmers ot the West will continue to help protect tho Industries ho represents while ho and other Senators who agroo with him can find for us only words of ClUTIUrSJI AND DEtftJCIATION Bat tho East is not the custodian of the National conscience nncl tho people oftho West aro governed by no sectional and scl ibh views They industrious and patriotic and are neither visionary nor sordid If they believed tho silver to a parity witjb disaster to the best of tho country they no more ask its further coinage than they would ask that iron and lead which likewise should be stamped coin f Iven to the world We are for the honor of our country and tbo sanctity of its i obligations Vital as Is this question to us uiil our local prosperity wo would rather seo our mining camps desolate and deserted our mining shafts and tunnels abandoned than that tbo currency of tho country should be degraded or our credit impaired at home or abroad and would cheerfully turn our hands toother industries if thereby tho fabric of the Nation could be strength ened but wo entertain a wellgrounded conviction that silver is entitled to ITS 6TD POSITION AS MONEY and to the extent of Its availability for that purpose that Its reestablishment Is but simple justice and that its value for coin should no more bo measured by tho stand ard of gold than that gold should be moas urud by the standard of silver So believ ing tho person who questions the motives of a groat and Important section of tho country It is a producer of metal must himself hold narrow and contracted views of Ho showed that tho growth of this coun try was such that the coinage of our entire product would work no Injury to commerce If this were true why not give our farmers and wage workers tho money they want without governed by tho demands of oUmr cnuutriesy It is singular that the Senators who talk most of the olVcct of other are those who demand tho most in the way of a protective tar I IT Thoso fears were genuine but not tangible In view of tho fact that the balance of trade continued Incur favor The gold available for coin diminishes rather than Increases and Is nor sufllclnnt to moot tho wants of tho world It Is dlfllcult to secure unanimity of action in other countries but there are reasons bullevo that If this country takes thy load foreign countries will adopt our standard Hcthon TO turned to tho criticisms upon thcsordldnoss of the West and showed that whereas tho West always stands by the balance of tho country in keeping up the navy in which It has no local interest tbe river and harbor appropriations of which It gets no share and in maintaining a pro tective policy from which It derives llttlo benefit that section has asked very little at tho handy ot Congress Ho did not consider ft necessary to review the legislation of 1S7JJ but hostile as was that act to silver coinage 11 never contemplated suspending tho coinage and It did not Intend to make a commercial commodity and debase It as doiii tho House bill before us Ho then re viewed the POLICY Ol THE ADMINISTRATION slnco the passage of the act ot 1878 towards sllvur and said Tho day star of hope did not rlso for us until tho National conven tions of 1888 Then both parties declared for silver Jt seems droll now to recall tho enthusiasm created in tho far West The Republican candidate for tho Presidency had boon In public life but his utterances had not buon many or particu larly Important Tho motto In part as sumed by the judges could have been ap plied him StaL Magnl Ntnilmim UmhnC Yot wo hunted up tho Conwessional Record and boing ardent and sanguine and our hearts hems Illumined by hope many of us found In a sontonois hero and there some thing which indicated a friendly fooling for silver aud we labored on tbo farms of tho valleys and on tho plains and in tho mining camps In tho mountain gulches and carious with these ends Wo hold up Cleveland to contumely and scorn in withering language that would make him feel very badly if ho over hoard of it and wo extolled our can didate lu glowing terms and assured our friends that upon his election tho rernone of silver would be speedily accom plished and that meanwhile of the Treasury whoever ho might bo would certainly commence coining four millions a month If 1 rorntimbor aright wo mado some predictions as to tho treatment and recognition tho Groat Northwest would receive whonhe became President which havent exactly materialized but I am con fining myself to the silver question Wo gave a handsome majority for tho Eopub llcan ticket our hopes woro high our con fid onco supreme The awakening all along the line has boon somewhat rude If Wlndorns recom mendation approved by tho President could havo been announced before tho elec tion It Is my humble opinion that NOT A SINflLE STATE west of fcho Missouri rlvor would havo given a Republican majority not because a largo majorhy of tho citizens of those States woro not and aro not and will not always be true and staunch earnest Republicans loving tho traditions ot tho party and true to its principles but because they would rebuke tho party who should select as Its standard bearer one unmindful of tho Interests of his country and dlsrogarclful of tho wishes of tho majority of its members The open foo Is to bo preferred to tho secret enemy but can foretell tho future or gather llgs of thistles lie then wont Into a criticism of Tttrc WINDOM POLICY tho House Silver bill aud some of tho Sonato Finance Committoos amendments to tho bill especially that providing for tho ex piration of tho law after ton years Ho concluded as follows Such aro some of tho difficulties under which tho friends of silver havo labored but though wo havo much to contend with wo aro by no moans hopeless A bill for tho free coinage of sll vor will some day become a law Tho ad ministrative lullueiico Is strong and the farreaching inducements ib can offer are Its friends when it has any are supposed to bask in the sunshine of Execu tive patronage Those who although of tho same political faith cant agree with it must sit In darkness The Cabinet oUlcers with this patronage soliciting support to a Government measure aro almost omnipo tent but not quito Yet wo do not despair A largo majority of tho Senators on tho oMicrsido were unchanged by the utter ances of the last Chief Executive A number of tbo Senators on this side of tho chamber feel able to form thoir own opinions A bill for freo coinage will become a law because tho country is in favor of It aud In the end tho wishes of tho majority govern notwith standing the personal wishes of tho Execu tive Tho measure is of vast importance of far greater importance than tho Election bill tho AntlGcrrymandoring bill or the Tariff bill So groat aro the interests in volved that in view of them party linos are obliterated and forgotten and the South and West meet on common ground animated by by a common patriotic purpose Loud applause in tee galleries followed tho conclusion of Senator Wolcotts speech and the senate clustered around him in con gratulation There was a moment of ex pectation broken by the motion ofSenator Stewart to strike out tho first amendment of tho Sonato Committee on Finance which toqk away tho legal tender quality of the treasury notes to bo issued in accordance with tho House bill The ayes aud nays woro promptly domondod as the roll call proceeded it became evident that tlio re commendations of tho Committee6u Finnnca to bti ruthlessly slaughtered Only fourteen Republicans recorded themselves In favor of destroying the legal tender quality of tho notes Aldrlch Blair Chandler Fryo Halo Hoar Merrill and Platt and Blod gett Carlisle Gibson Gray Harris arid Mc IMiovson Tho announcement of tho voto created a genuine sensation for it was evident that the friends of silver wore in an overwhelm ing majority and would bo able to carry whatever proposition they might agree upon Tho second amendment striking out tho provision for bullion tho only sevenSenators voting against it boing Chandler Frye Halo llis cook Hoar Merrill aud Sherman seven in all whlJo iirtyseven

lliiiiting the operation of the act to ten years only found four votes in its favor namely those of Senators Chandler Edmunds Morrill and Sherman Senator Plumb now proposed his free coinage amendment amidst a general sen sation in the galleries which communicated itself to the floor Senator Blair was promptly on his leet with an the amendment limit ing the amount to be coined and issued to five millions per month The coinage amendment of Senator Blair found only twelve supporters these being Senators Al len Blair Chandler Dawes Ed munds Fryc Halo McPherson Paddock Spooner and Washburn Meantime a debate arose between Ed munds and Plumb Senator Edmunds an nounced himself as disgustedwith the entire proceedings and declared that he should not interpose any obstacles to the passage of whatever bill the majority might determine a majority which he said was composed of the Democratic party and a few of its cred ulous and misguided allies on the Repub lican side He danouneed the plan as a schorno by which the debtors proposed to pay theirdcbts in cheaper mcney and was promptly called to task by Senator Plumb who Insisted that Mr Edmunds did not speak for the Republican party hardly for himself and he did not believe for his own State There were several violent passages at arms and various amendments wore olVered and withdrawn beforcvtho vote was finally taken upon Senator Plumbs amendment providing for free coinage which was car ried by a vote of fortythree to twenty four Senators Gray McPberson and Wilson of Maryland among the Democrats alone voting in tho negative The announcement of tho vote was greet ed with applause galleries which was suppressed by a vigorous use of the gavel by the VicePresident The succeeding amendments simply in the line of perfecting as already agreed up on and excited little Tho preg nant fact remained that tho Senate of the United States had recorded itself in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver by an unexpected and overwhelming majority that tbo Adminisliaticm which Cor a week past had used whip and spurs on the floor of the Senate in tho committee room or at tho private residences of the Senators had been routed horse spur aud dragoons and that the splendid confi dence aiul work oL tho Senators from the mining States who refused all com promises and insisted upon adhering to tho principles of bimctalism had won tlio day Tho final vote was fortytwo to twonty Qve The tension which had been maintained during tho hours of voting was then relieved by a motion to adjourn and the galleries were quietly Teller and Plumb were suvroundod by a large group of congratulating Sonaliors and then tho crowd slowly dispersed Tho bill now goes to the House whore it will lie upon the Speakers table to bo called up as is expected at an early day Tho disgruntled administration tho go betweens and tho bugsinsist that Mr Road will find some way toprevent tho ratification of the billby the House Just what moans ho can adopt cant at the present bo seen Tho action of tho Senate Iras sfcilVened up wonderfully tho weak backs of a number of tho members of the House who voted against freecoinage when the bill was last before thoinarid who will now take tho first opportunity oUeiod to jump on Iho band wagow The sentiment of the House is undoubtedly for froo coinage whotrout from under tho lash of tlio party There is no question that if opportunity bepiTpiod the House will promptly the ments and send the bill to tbo President for his signature ov veto Mr Wlndoms friends are tonight loudly boasting that President Harrison will de cline to give his assent to and that asufllciont number cannot bomustered in cither house to pass the same over his veto Others however assert that Mr Harrison will not dare to fly iu tbo ftico of a public son timont which has been so over whelming as to compel tlie conservative Senate of the of whoso members in that they are doubtful of tho wisdom of an unlimited freo coinage measure to pass by such a ma jority the most liberal possible bill through the upper bouse and arc Inclined to believe that after considering the matter tihqPresi dent will when the opportunity presents fall in lino with his party The torriflic assault upon the adminlstra1 tion by Senator Woleott today it is thought by some friends of will have a good ellcct upon the Administration while others believe It will embitter him against Western measures and Interests There is general congratulation among the friends of silver tonight It is1 said this evening that Speaker Rood has thought out a plan by which consideration of thebill in tho House may be postponed A clause of the House rules providesthat any amended House bill carrying an appropriation shall be considered In Committee of the Whole Speaker Rood Is considering whether not be his Christian duty to place tho amended House bill on the calendar because it carries an appropriation for coinage Once placed there it called up by motion of tho Committee ou Coinage or a resolution of the Committee ou Rules THE SENATE PROCEEDINGS The Scries of Trinmplis Achieved by Silvers Friends Silver bill was taken up addressed tho Senate Ho said that when the Senators who lived in tbe silverproducingStates were accused of holding sordid and un worthy and uupatriotic opinions and when itwas said that thosewho wore demanding that silver bo restored own place with its sister metals1 were speculators and ad vouturors and were indifferent to the true welfare of tho eoauuy he would have to be pardoned
