The following a Gen- eral Ixmgst root's letter: THE TEXT OF THK I.BTTKK. I did not ejxirciae the privilege of Buck well knows, and he probably also know that, by the recognition by the republican admin- istration, we could have brought several state, of the south into indorsement of the party nominee, in 1892, and in that way he and his little coterie would nave been lost sight of in all further convention..

The constitution, ho said, was perpetually invoked by narrow, ana rigid, arid illiberal constructionists as an ffort to ben Au seperable barrier against every effort to benefit thecondition of the people. The people of tlie United States did not regard the constitu- tion with superstition or awe. They knew that there v. as something more venerable than charters, more sacred than constitutions, and that waa the rights and privileges which the charters and constitutions were ordained to establish and to maintain. Mr. Ingalls then proceeded to argue that his amendment did not violate thn constitution m any respect, and that there was a wide differ- ence between it and a revenue measure, lie affirmed that the bill was, in no ever, a bill for raising revenues, and was, not obnoxious to the that aH revenue measures must originate in tho house of represcntatlv es. Mr. Butler offered an amendment extending the provisions of the bill to stocks and banks. Mr'.'lngalls inquired whether stocks and bonds were to be taxed by the pound or bushel. THE LAST MEETING.

Md., March sent a message to the legislature tonight tranat muting a communication from L. Victof Baugham, state comptroller. The cumpUolM states that he has discovered a tiou of state securities in the hands oi Treasurer Stevenson Archer Treasurer Archer is lying critically ill at home. The Baltimore Sun's Annapolis .pedal Bays: MEV CRIED LIKE The message from the governor came like ft shock to tbe members of the legislature. presiding officers and some of the senators had been previously sent for by Governor Jackson, and were told of tbe affair. Secretary of State LeCompte carried a copy of the message into each house, and n hen tho business then up was disposed of, it was read. The scene in the house, which was full of people was almost indescribable. fell back in their seats, speechless for the time, and it vv as a strange s.ght to see men crying like children. All unfounded report w as circulated during the excitement that a telegram had beeureceived from Blair, stating that Mr. Archer was dead, but tins was soou contradicted. Both houses adjourned at once. It was Comptroller Baugbmau's discovery of the hypothecation of securities held by the state that led to the disclosures, and it was letter that Gov ernor Jackson used as a basut for the message to the legislature. WHAT THK COMPTROLLER SATS. Comptroller Bftughmau reiterated the stance contained m his letter. He said: "Two of the notes that I have traced are for and respectively. I don't know tho character or the amounts of the securities. Tbe safe deposit vault at Baltimore stands in the name of the state treasurer, and no else can have access to it. On Monday I in Baltimore, with the _ govemol and attorney general. We telegrams to Mr. Archer, but his stopped the proceed! igs. It was my duty state comptroller to lay the facts, as far as I knew them, before the government, and thero was nothing else for me to do. It is not pos- sible to know what is the condition of tho state securities, because the) are locked up m the safe deposit vault. I cannot say anything as to the probable amount involved m tho A dispatch was received by the governor late tonight saying that Archer's condition was much easier The bond of the state treasurer is SJUI.UUU. The involv emeiit of tbe name of State Treas- urer Archer, with the illegitimate use of of the state, was so unexpected to every one that his are not 5 et able to fully realize it. Whatever tbe amount of defalcation, tlio state is secured._______________ A TALUF.P SVOOESTIOK. From a State Senator of Kentucky to Hern tnjrway.
