Boston Weekly Globe (Newspaper) - December 8, 1891, Boston, Massachusetts Rush in january renew now a As Llu a avoid the Rush Iron Ivi a Olimb i Ostout vol. Xix no. 49. Boston tuesday Mohning december 1891. N Price five path. Marked out by the new York platform. Quot i shall heed its purport and conform to its at Elmira for honest Money and arraign the Republican party. Elmira n. A a a dec. 4.�?gov. Hill addressed Tho democracy of this City this evening at a Large meeting hold under the auspices of the David b. Hill club. To was received with unbounded enthusiasm and spoke about an hour and a half on a Tho issues for 1802.�?� he made an elaborate and carefully prepared argument on tile currency and Tariff questions suggesting Tho policy which he believed the democrats in Congress should pursue on these matters. Tov. Hill said in substance a the democrats of new York stand fast for sound finance they demand that every Dollar coined in the United states Shah be the equal of every other Dollar so coined. Quot they demand More. They demand that every Silver Dollar coined hitherto or hereafter shall he the equal of the present Gold Dollar our present unit of value weighing 25 8-19 Troy grains of Standard Gold and not one cent not one Mill less Worth than that Gold Dollar. Quot president Harrison by the profusion of his pledges admits that Tho Silver Dollar is not now equal to the Gold Dollar. I hat is True. Melt the Silver Dollar today and you make loss. That Lias been True since 1878, when free bimetallic coinage the free coinage of both metals into the same monetary unit in one competent National mint ceased. Quot president Harrison proposes no plan for making the Silver Dollar equal to the Gold Dollar Secretary Blaine proposes none Secretary Foster none. A no Republican Leader convention platform or press offers any plan whatever to redress that present inequality. A the democrats of new York and the whole Union now stand United in denouncing the Sherman Law. And demanding that a Erv Silver Dollar shall be by every test in the mint in the melting pot. In the Market Here and throughout the world equal to the present Gold Dollar. Such is now the difference Between the democratic and the Republican parties on the Gold and Silver questions the honest Money question. A the Republican party remains the 75- cent Silver Dollar party. A the democratic party asks to he empowered to make the Silver Dollar As Good As the present Gold Dollar and keep it so. A the action of the democrats of new York at their Saratoga convention is in my a Humble judgment the most pregnant the most momentous the most far reaching action which has been lately taken by any political body. # Quot then and there our great democratic party the country a sole dependence for deliverance from billion congresses from political desperadoes and corruption lists. Was rescued from division and disaster. Then and there the Republican party was roomed to defeat. A a took at the situation. President Harrison a name is signed to every act of the billion Congress. The Constitution gave the president Power alone to have vetoed alone to have averted the sum of its monstrous iniquities. He adopted he endorsed them All. A last november a year ago the people arose Iii their Kratli and struck Down the billion Congress. Put not until next years november can they strike Power from the hands which might have prevented All the billion Congress did yet adopted Aud endorsed it All. A your new York democratic convention decided with consummate political courage and consummate political Wisdom instead of leaving Tho vote of now York next year doubtful to decide it this year. A your Saratoga convention decided that the knife which president Harrison and the Silver senators and sex soaker Reed and the whole Republican leadership Hail carefully whetted for the Severance of new York from the head of the democratic column next year should he seized and seized by Tho handle now and that on the night of their of november its Blade should Pierce Republican vitals. Quot the Republican leaders saw the coming stroke when they read our platform lost their Heads hew at our conduct of state affairs where we were Iron Clad went to pieces and for the rest babbled of Green Fields like that immense liar in the play at falstaff babbled of a tammany and a a no greater misfortune has befallen Tho whole people of the United states since they were defrauded in 1876, of their Sovereign right to assign their presidency to the party and the Man of their deliberate Choice than Tho loss of the Federal elections of 1888.,. Quot the billion Congress and All its wrongdoings became possible through that misadventure. The squandered surplus Tho advancing deficit the monstrous prodigality. The packed House and the packed Senate whereby a new and scandalous scheme of taxation was put beyond Roach of popular Reform for the whole of the current presidential term and a part of the next terms the door for All these evils was Flung wide open by the Peoples failure three years ago to elect a democratic Congress or even a democratic president Whoso veto Power might alone have been the people a Huck i or and defence. Quot president Cleveland a administration deserved a better Fate. No scandals marked its election. Its Success was not bought by the purses of Ricoli candidates nor corruption fund hat holders rewarded with Cabinet office. No scandals stained its history. Its partisan affairs were not conducted by men of spotted Fame and ill repute. Its Public councils were led by men of Long experience of unsullied Lams of unquestioned i clo not ask of sincere republicans that they shall approve or. Cleveland s Tariff message which made them so anxious to prevent his continuance in office hut i ask them to consider if perchance there can be any connection Between systematic party legislation to protect the accumulation of colossal fortunes by a few favored interests Aud these invariable outbreaks of political leprosy under every Republican president so conspicuous by their absence during or. Cleveland a administration. A nevertheless defeat came and a democratic majority of 19 representatives in the 60th Congress was changed to a Republican majority of to in the 51st Congress which came in at the end of or. Cleveland a terms tile billion Congress. Quot in 1890. Two years later new issues lied been raised by the revolutionary procedures and Acta of the Republican party then for the first time in Many years controlling every Branch of Tho Federal government. What were those new issues i will name them a i. An annual too million surplus squandered Aud an approaching deficit now at hand., "2. Extravagance in our annual budget. At last so far enhanced As to replace upon the Peoples Industry More than All the Burden of one whole generations toilsome payment of funded War debt. 3. The attempted Force Bill. �?�4. The speakers Lawless partisanship to increase the House majority ejecting elected representatives now re elected and a packing of the Senate with six new members some elected some not and two pairs of them representing fewer citizens than their census left uncounted in the City of new York All this to hoist the Republican Senate majority and their Tariff acts. Beyond the reach of popular reversal for years. "6, Tho two Mckinley acts initiating a mad unconstitutional scheme of taxation the Bounty and subsidy system with the Blaine reciprocity Humbug attachment entangling our Industrial Freedom by bad state bargains with 50,000,000 Central and South americans and by barricades against Good private bargains with 1,500,000,000 of the rest of Mankind. Quot upon these new still living still dominant issues raised by Republican misrule foreboding further revolution in the Structure and spirit of our Federal government a great popular uprising one year ago converted the fraudulently distended Republican majority of 24 representatives in the 51st Congress into a democratic majority of 237 out of 332 in the present or 52d con novel All these issues were and Are is obvious when we reflect that if the two Mckinley acts were today repealed As they should be the taxation of the country would be left standing on the very data of or. Cleveland a famous message. Quot the Energy of that indignant decision was tremendous yet the Peoples will was walked it did not change the executive it did not Rescue the Senate from the control of the rebuked Peoples verdict upon that Congress which in two year appropriated away 81,000,000.000 of the Peoples earnings taken by taxation must be renewed next fall at the ballot Box before it can have full execution. Quot i come now to Tho Point of exposing before you the Crafty scheme adopted at Winter by the Defeated Republican leaders As their Only Chance to keep the executive Branch of Hie Federal government in their own hands next Vear. Despite such an overwhelming popular rebuke. A Many to a Stern republicans both in the Senate and the House shared the conviction which is so nearly unanimous among democrats. Quot but they were Down Fiat victims of a great people s Wrath in the congressional elections of 1890, and plotting escape from its logical completion in the congressional Anet presidential elections of 1892. What to do Quot they determined to Divide if possible the democrats of new York from their fellow democrats snatch the presidency in 1892. And so retaining veto poem Over the acts of a Congress democratic after 1893. Prevent repeal of the Mckinley acts prevent Revenue Reform prevent currency Reform and keep the Republican Teredo Ever Honey combing and rotting tile timbers of the democratic Constitution of these United states. Quot tile Federal Plank of the Saratoga platform was adjusted to that difficult Aud dangerous situation. Quot do not fail to remember that All our financial troubles for the last Quarter of a Century Down to tills very hour Are the direct consequence of Republican Laws Republican blundering. Republican incompetency Republican Lead finance. Quot new York democrats standing fast for sound finance therefore denounced false pretence therefore denounced artful hindrance of a return to free bimetallic coinage and therefore appealed to the people to renew this year and again to renew next i year their verdict which will empower democratic statesmen not Only to guide the Peoples counsels but to execute the Peoples will. Quot the Crafty Republican scheme to frighten new York from her Devotion to sound finance from Lier Devotion to the hard Money of democratic Feitli Aud tradition from her Fidelity to the great doctrine of Jefferson the monetary unit must stand upon both and to Hie 70 Odd years practice of the United states thereunder that Crafty scheme has failed. Quot the democratic party is now a unit for free bimetallic coinage and new York Lias refused to be disjointed from Tim hard Money doctrine professed by the democratic senatorial body and supported by the democratic party in All tile great states of the West and South. Quot the democratic platform of new y Ork Marks out my path. It is my commission Aud my Chart. I shall heed its purport and conform to its directions. For it is countersigned and sealed with Tho Seal of the Empire state. Quot and i regard it is the highest Honor of a Long career devoted to the service of the state that my fellow citizens besides approving by my own election twice and by the election of my honoured successor the last seven years executive conduct of its affairs and besides sending me to the Federal Senate immediately after my Public denunciation in Brooklyn a year ago of the Sherman Silver Law and my declaration then in favor of free bimetallic coinage next should have ratified that Choice by reiterating with a fresh emphasis what i had there expounded As the principle and policy of that greatest of democrats. Thomas Jefferson who said a the monetary unit must stand upon both Quot now let us dint up our loin for the final contest Winch will not cease till next year nov. 8. Quot the Wise bold action of the democrats of new y Ork and her Peoples votes have already put the Republican leaders upon their defence and empowered Ali democratic leaders of other states if they will to put next november a contest upon the Clear issues made by the acts of the billion Congress and not upon any other Issue whatever. Quot Tho fight will be desperate. It has begun. Quot finally with All due deference i cannot withhold the expression of my personal conviction that any Elia Cement to promote free bimetallic coinage requires Larder circumspection and a More cautious avoidance of the conflict of mint ratios Lian any Bill As yet proposed. Quot whilst free bimetallic coinage was in full operation conflicting mint ratios could syphon out one of the Money metals across a National Boundary. Final identity of ratios among All nations coining both metals could have no less importance whilst free bimetallic coinage were getting re established. Every circumstance that might Leopard the Experiment Evon by causing groundless fears should lie carefully removed. Quot rather would i heed fully preserve from panic til new York even tile a lambs of Viall St. And Tho lunatics of wards Island. Quot these Are a few of the reasons Why. As a democrats one among Many i would wish to Pivot our canvass for the coining to months both in Washington Aud throughout our land upon issues made by the billion Congress and by the Peoples votes one year ago but hooding once again tile Peoples votes in order to give any practical effect to their verdict against those giant wrongs. A a and new York has cleared the sex gov. Hoard confident. Can prevent his nomination if he desires it. If to does no to. President Harrison will be the nominee. There will be no contest in till convention on that question. As to the present relations Between the two i am told by each of them that they perfectly understand Oue another. Rests with the president. If he keeps Raum Cooper says fight will be renewed. Washington pee. I. A representative j Cooper of Indiana who introduced in the last Congress tile Resolution providing for an investigation of commissioner ran rns administration of Tho pension office Ami who personally prosecuted his charges against or. Raum before Tho House committee on invalid pensions said today that if Gen. Raum retired within a month or so in believed there would be no Lii Vesliga 1 Tion of the pension office by the 52d Congress. Or. Cooper added that if Tim president was determined to keep Gan. Raum the tight would to renewed. It was for Hie president to say said or. Cooper whether there would be a renewal of the strife. Live Tariff branches of Trade More Active. Motes of interest gathered from Home and foreign of failures about the same As in the same week last year. He says Quot Wisconsin May be counted on As a Republican state. Sex gov. Hoard of Yvis Consin is in town and is quartered at the Tremont House. When seen by a Globe reporter last evening he gave his opinion of the political situation in Wisconsin. Quot there is very Little to said Tho or governor. A about the political situation in tile state of Wisconsin. Little activity is noticeable on either siday when asked if Yvis Consin would to a doubtful state in 1892 the sex governor said Quot it think it will go Republican by from 15,000 to 20,000. There is a constant growth in population. Tho manufacturing population have generally been in favor of the Mckinley Bill and their vote in support of the measure is increasing and the agricultural population is beginning to see that the Law is one which benefits the whole country. Quot the a Bennett school Law is practically dead. No such Issue will enter into the Campaign of �?T92. The democrats repealed the Law shortly after they had succeeded to Power. Quot if James g. Blaine is a candidate he will certainly carry Wisconsin. Or. Harrison in Tho minds of the people of my mate has Given the country a Good upright adm is j traction. If Harrison is a candidate and Blaino is not Iii the Field. Harrison will be Well supported by our people. In the event of Harrison and Blaine both being candidates for nomination the conventions vote will be divided. Blaine is a great favorite in the entire Vest. A a Cleveland is without doubt the Choice of the democracy of the or. Hoard when asked if the republicans had regained the ground they lost in 1890, said Quot i do not think they lost any ground there were 50,000 republicans who did not vote. I think the state of Wisconsin car. Be counted among the Republican Springs into Fame. By his vote Stevens becomes known by name by ail. Washington dec. 5.�?no matter who May be elected speaker of Tho House there is one Man who ought to be thankful for the bitterly contested fight. This is representative Stevens who. As the recipient of one vote on every ballot has at a bound leaped into National prominence. His name will be published in every Raper in the country tomorrow morning. By or. Of Neil a action he is known to every member of the House and that is a piece of fare Luck which Seldom Falls to the lot of a new member so Early in his congressional career. Gov. Mccreary of Kentucky remarked tonight that or. Stevens owed of Neil a debt of gratitude for having enrolled his name in the annals of Fame. Prospect of a deadlock. Sixteen ballots taken with no Choice in speaker ship caucus. Washington. Dec. 6.�?there is every Prospect of a deadlock tonight in the speaker ship caucus. The sixteenth ballot resulted As follows Crisp 92 Mills 90 Springer 17 Mcmillin to Hatch 5 Stevens i Depew on Blaine. Chicago dec. 2.�?in an interview Here today Chauncey m. Depew said Quot there is no division of sentiment in the Republican party As to Blaine if he becomes a Condi Date for Tho nomination. Nothing on Earth Grover Cleveland writes that duty and expediency now Are one. Canton 0., dec. 4. The y Oung menus i democratic club of Canton celebrated with a banquet last night tile fourth anniversary of Grover Cleveland a Tariff Reform message. Or. Cleveland sent a letter which was read amid on Nusi Istle cheering. Quot i or. Cleveland wrote Quot that i am unable to attend the meeting. The value and significance of this occasion it seems to me Are found in till evidence it furnishes of a determination to push the Issue of Tariff Reform in a practical and effective manner. Quot it is the duty of Tho democratic part to do this and expediency As Well As duty forbids any backward step or faltering. Quot no party can succeed which deliberately relinquishes a principle on tile eve of its vindication and no party ought to succeed which having led men to an honest examination of a question vital to their interest and welfare Abandons their guidance and leaves them in doubt and perplexity. A the Cou Fidenco born of partial Success and the assertion of the claims of any individual to party leadership ought not to divert us from the duty we owe to the people. A your obligations to them will not be discharged until Iii every Hamlet Anil neigh Bermed throughout Tho land our cause is so presented to our countrymen that they can be no longer deceived through blunders nor corrupted through some notes.

The Peculiar effect of the use of smokeless powder in Battle. Rehoboth sunday Herald. J an English officer who had been a spec Tater of the late French manoeuvres on the italian Frontier after mentioning the difficulties lie experienced from the character of the country and the Lack of roads writes As follows a another very great difficulty in the Way of properly judging of the manoeuvres is the use of smokeless powder. Quot it seems to be hardly sufficiently realized what an extraordinary effect that must have Iii War. Again and again i found myself in a position where i could hear Volley after Volley Field guns too sometimes being tired within Yards of me and yet i gazed intently for a Tow minutes trying in vain to discover the whereabouts of the fires. Quot noise is Ever deceptive and one moment you think the men must lie close but a puff of wind or some such cause May make the sound appear to come from Miles off. If the men Are at All hidden who lire and Are stationary it would seem almost impossible to discover them at say 80 t Yards. Quot in War time one soon would know if they were firing at one but in manoeuvres the Case is different i was with a Small party of men who descried a number of the enemy moving across the open about 500 Yards off. Our party Lay Down and began firing volleys. The enemy stopped and turned in our direction. Quot we noted certain movements of theirs hut could not make out for certain whether they were merely looking round to see where the firing came Lora. Or whether they were firing pack at us. The Din of Battle was going on All around and it was impossible to Tell by sound and the Flash was too indistinct to see. Quot surely the introduction of smokeless powder will affect tactics even More than did the employment of Breech loaders or percussion guatemalan want to to annexed. City of Mexico dec. 2.�?the mexican minister at Guatemala reports that there Are Over 10,000 mexicans in that country and that it is an open secret that sooner or later these people will demand annexation to Mexico As the texans did to the United states. The plan is not Ripe As yet. But As soon As the revolution Breaks out in Guatemala Steps will be taken to carry out the scheme and it maybe taken for granted that any attempt at revolution will be abetted by mexicans. Newyl Ork Doc. 4.�?r. G. Dun a weekly review of Trade says the Only change observable in Hie condition of business is a gradual improvement. Many branches of Trade Are a Little More Active and Iii some the i Iii movement is quite satisfactory.

His position is that the House had the Power to make the Rule under which tile Bill was passed and that the question of the Wisdom of tile Rule is one with which the court has nothing to do the remedy being in the House its wifi and ultimately in tile people who elect the representatives.

The abolition of the provision allowing promotion of persons in the ii on Classi fled service to positions in the classified service after non competitive examination the report says is one of Tho Best changes in the rules that has been made in recent years not that the Rule had worked very much damage so far but because it always contained great possibility for evil.

In spite of All Hie influence of the Church he kept them Iii prison Over two years before he would Pardon them. In 1876 he made his Well remembered journey to this country to visit the Philadelphia exposition and wont from Here to Europe Hie holy land and Egypt. The events which led to Pedro a forced abdication began with his failing health which drove him to Europe in 1886 for medical care. He left ills daughter Hie countess of a eur and heir apparent to the throne As Regent. This daughter the Princess Isabel was believed to to absolutely under the influence of Tho jesuits while tier husband who was commander in chief of the army. Was deservedly unpopular. Pedro had destroyed Tho political influence of the clergy and had Long abstained from interfering with the will of parliament Isabel favored Tho restoration of Tho priests to political Power and con stantly offended in the latter respect. Pedro had banished the jesuits at the request of parliament Isabel recalled them and gave Thorn greater Power than before. Iii november. 1889. After Tho sick emperor had returned to Metropolis Isabel offended tile planters by signing a decree finally emancipating All slaves without providing compensation for their owners and tiffs act brought the planters Aud their friends to the Ain of the republicans. The Regent blundered again by breaking up a political meeting in Rio Janeiro and suppressing newspapers.

Should Tho Princess Isabella and the count do eur make and persist in any demand for the Imperial succession Tho result will probably be the confiscation of All the property of the Imperial family in Brazil.

Largo drove of wild hogs found on a Missouri Island. Weston mo., l be. 2 a in Tho Missouri River about two Miles below this town is a Large Island containing about 200 acres. This Island was formed in Sulci a manner that a Strong Channel runs on either Side Between it and Tho main land. The Island is heavily covered with a growth of underbrush and is rarely visited except by fishermen who have landed on the shores to arrange their nets Home weeks ago four negroes went to the Island thinking that they might possibly find some rabbits and other Small game. They had hardly gone to feet from the place where they had tied their boat when a Rabbit Jun ipod up and Thoy shot at it. Hardly had the echoes of the shot ceased when the men wore appalled by a most frightful sound As if immense droves of horses or cattle Wero crashing through the underbrush. They Wero so frightened that Thor hastened to their Lioata and returned to the Mainland. They told their stories of tile Inci debt. But were laughed at for their pains. It was supposed that Somo Peculiar Echo had caused the commotion but the darkies insisted that the place was haunted and nothing could induce them to go Back. One Man thought there might be More than a scare to Tho matter and determined to investigate. He went to Tho Island Aud inn de a careful search around the Shore before venturing on the land. He was surprised to find innumerable tracks of hogs and at once Camo to the conclusion that escaped animals had become wild on the Island. He returned to tile town and obtained assistance and a party searched the place. It was found that a drove of Over 200 hogs were running wild on the Island and had been there so Long that they had lost All traits of the Domestic animal. It is now the proper thing to organize a hog Hunt and got the Winters meat from Tho Island. Merit to be recognized. President instructs Heads of departments to keep record. Washington dec. 6.�?the president has sent the follow ing letter of instructions to the Heads of Tho several executive departments of the government mansion Washington dec. 4, 1891. Sir in my message to the first session of Tho 61st Congress i said Quot i Nave suggested to the Heads of the executive department that they consider whether it record might not be kept in each Bureau of All those elements that Are covered by the terms a faithfulness and and a rating made showing the relative merits of the clerks of each class this rating to he regarded As a test of Merit in making in some of the department this suggestion has been acted top of in part at least and i now direct that in your department a plan be at once devised and put in operation for keeping an efficiency record of Alf persons within the classified service with a View to placing pro motions wholly upon the basis of Merit it is intended to make provision for carrying into effect the stipulation of the civil service Law in relation to promotions in the classified service. To that end the Rule requiring compulsory examination has been rescinded. In Ray opinion the examination for promotion of those who present themselves should be chiefly of not wholly upon their knowledge of the work of the Bureau or department to which they belong and the record of efficiency made by them during their previous service. I think the records of efficiency kept from Day to Day should be open to the inspection of the clerks. Very respectfully your. Harbison. Something turned up.

A Tennyson a first poem. Lord Tennyson received from his Grandfather the sum of to shillings As a Reward of Industry for his first poem. When handing the Young relative the coins he remarked Quot there is the first Money you have Ever earned and i suppose it will he the constitutionality assailed in i United states supreme Miller Ara rued at length in its defence. Washington dec i. The United states supreme court today continued the hearing of the thro a suit brought by new y Ork and Chicago importers to test the constitutionality of the Mckinley Tariff act. John p. Wilson repro tiring Marshall Field a co., close i Tho opening argument for the importers Manta fling that the whole act a. Vitiated by tie emission of the tobacco rebate Section. He illustrated his position by supposing that the free sugar clause had been omitted and asking if the sugar Bounty clan a would in such an event have been held to he Legal. He also contended Tim th�?T1 rat of duties had been affected by the Igar Bounty provision. Justice Harlan asked How he ascertained such to he the a i. Or. Wilson responded that he Asor ruined it from the net self. Wit Iii to passed for the purpose of reducing the revenues of Tho government. Free Ugar had rut off 06 .-iniu.odo, Luff the bounties to he paid from customs duties had been paid a a Protection to the a Rodner who had to compete against free sugar. Bustier Grav inquired a where was the difference Between the constitutionality of a protective Tariff and of a Bounty. Or. Wilson found the Iii Fforence in till fart that a protective Tariff came under tile clause of Tho Constitution giving Congress the right to regulate Commerce with foreign nations while the Only authority which could be claimed for the Bounty system a the Quot general welfare Quot clause. There a quite a fro fire of question and answer Between the justices and counsel As respects the Quot general welfare clause. Justice Field wished to know if weight should not he attached to the practice of a Century. Or. Wilson thought the question had never been passed on. Justice Bradley asked if attempts had been made to destroy legislation based on the a general welfare clause. He inquired if the codfish aet passed for the Benefit of new England fishermen to put them on in oven basis with the French Ami English had not been passed under Tho Quot general welfare clause of the Constitution and Justice Harlan cited the recent fortification Amiro privation act passed for the purpose of encouraging gun Stool manufacture in the United states and asked if Congress could give bounties to gun manufacturers Why not to sugar producers. Or. Wilson however did not admit that these cases were analogous to that of the direct payment for a simple production of an article. Solicitor general raft then followed in behalf tit the United states. He directed Iris attention to the omission of the tobacco rebate Section and his line of argument was that it would not do Tor the court to go behind the enrolled aet. When they examined Tho journal they would find no record of the act itself and tile court would hav e to supplement the record by enrol evidence which was conflicting. Attorney general Miller argued till Bounty and reciprocity features. To maintained Tho full right of Congress under Tho Quot general welfare clause to pass a Bounty act. It was the duty of Congress. In his opinion to build up our industries so As to to Independent of the world Iii time of need. Iii Tim oof peace the government could get everything out in time of War it could not. Iii time of peace the South had Dei ated itself to Cotton and Corn and had prospered hut when the War Camo Tho South found that it would have been to its advantage to have fostered its industries so that it would not have been compelled to buy abroad. The Power granted Congress under Tho general welfare clause was absolute and was not reviewable by this tribunal or and other tribunal on Earth. The general welfare Power was As absolute us that of the common defence or naval Power. Suppose Congress directed the building of an ancient greek trireme would anybody say this court coaids review and nullify that determination if the Power wore Given to Congress Tho Means Wero certainly in Hie discretion of Congress unless it used Means which tins court could say As a judicial inn Ter were not Means designed to the end. A Case might possibly arise in which the court could interpose. Congress might under the Quot general welfare clause appropriate Money for the building of Ait immense Cathedral Iii this City. The court might perhaps say that was not a Means designed to the end the general welfare. The attorney general instanced the Homestead depredation and other Laws passed under the Quot general welfare authority and added that the last Congress had passed a Law which from the records in his office he could say would Call for an enormous appropriation on account of Indian depredations. The attorney general devoted his review of the reciprocity objections of counsel to citations of a great number of cases running through almost a Century in which had been delegated to Hie president the Power to say when discriminating duties should be imposed. Stephen g. Clark of Newyl Ork argued that the court had a right to consider whether or not the Bill signed by the president was the Bill neither More nor less that Congress had passed lie said it was not necessary to take Parol evidence to show that sect onto had been omitted and he produced a Book containing a record of Bills passed kept in the clerks office of the House to show that a certain amendment whose number was noted Iii the journal of the House was really Section 30. Attorney general Miller asked if there were a Law for the keeping of that Book. Or. Clark said he was not informed on that Point. The attorney general retorted that unless there were such a Law the Book had no More weight than a newspaper publication. The argument will be closed Early tomorrow by or. Clark.
