It is said that the only proposition discussed was the one-making full legal tender the notes issued for the purchase of bullion, the bullion redemption clause having been abandoned by those who advocated it. The caucus was at- tended by about two-thirds of the republican senators, and while a majority of them were in favor of making the notes full legal tender, it was decided to postpone formal action on tlie proposition until another time when there shall be a full attendance.

Genius, brains, intelligence, everything must at the door of the protective tariH. Then Walker wanted to know if the patent system didn't do just what the protective tariff give a man the fruits of his labor. THE CASE TERSELY STATED. "No responded Judge Crisp, with empha- sis "The patent system gives an individual that which is his by reason of discovery.

Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, said that the pro- tectionists seemed to have worked themselves up to the belief that it was possible to devise a way of obtaining money for the support of their own government by collecting something from the people o! foreign governments. It was absurd to make a proposition of this sort. No man of sincerity would question the propo- sition that tbe people of the United btates calrtfiand nnainchtag.
