A large majority of the sen- ate had voted, he s for the free coinage of silver, but the conference report abso- lutely did away with all i.lca of free coin- age and contin-'pi. a-: 1 was intended to continue, the stem -under which silver had been -i-mly md consistently de- graded since He was anxious to see an absolute parity between the two metals as money metals. He would like to see the time when sixteen ounces of silver would purchase an ounce of gold, and when an ounce of gold would continue (as at present) to purchase sixteen ounces of silver. He read the closing clause of the second section of the conference bill ''it being the established policy of the United States to maintain the two nrjt.-ils on a parity with each other upon juvsant legal ratio, or such ratio as may be provided by and asked why that declaration had been that stump soeech had been injected into the stomiich of the bill. It had been put in, he said, for the pur- pose of saying to the treasury department lhat until silver came to a parity with {old it should pay out gold, and the pub- .c business should be conducted on a gold basis. He would never vote to maintain and continue that practice. He had never been "a silver man" for the purpose of booming silver, or of increasing its price. He was against that and all other forms of subsidy. The conference bill might give an increased market for silver, but the principle which the senate the two metals should be a been given away in that bill absolutely and completely. Mr. Coke expressed his concurrence in the conclusion reached by Mr. Vest. He could not support the conference bill. Mr. defended aud explained the conference report. The quetsion had arisen in the conference committee, he said, whether the two houses could be brought to an agreement on the two bills passed by them respectively. In the first Section of the conference bill the language of the first section of the house bill had been retained somewhat, but the amount of silver to be purchased had been in- creased. Much to his regret it had been fixed at a larger amount than the entire American product of silver. It had been made mandatory (not permissive) on the secretary of the treasury to buy ounces of silver each month, which at the rate of an ounce (or 6 to 1) would amount to the yearly issue of about sev- enty millions in treasury notes. The legal tender clau-e in the horse bill and the senate bill had been somewhat different and somewhat alike also, and the question had come up in conference whether it j would be right to deprive citizens j of the United States of the right to j contract for payment of conlrarts in gold i or anything else. It had, therefore, been j asrrse.1, neni con that thj treasury notes I to be issued for silver. like the j-ilverdol- Isr. which it was on. .should be i legal tender for all nublic find pri- unless when5 oth'vwiF? stimulated i in the contract. 1 to be found in the Bland Does the senator from Ohio think there is any of the sec- of the treasury f.-.ianc to buy 4.500.000 ounces of silver per month, if he can get it at less than par, as provided in the act Mr. Not the siighte-t.

There had been no lobby in either in the interest of silver; but there had never been bucli pressure brought upon congress as had been brought upon it at this session of congress to defeat the free coinage of silver. He believed that it was impossible to secure the free coinage of silver at the present session, not that he did not believe that there was a majority in its favor in the house of representatives, but because, un- der a system which he could not speak of patiently, the voice of that majority was stifled and could not be heard. And it never would be heard until the people of the United States should send to that bpdy and to the who were willing to represent them, and to repre- sent them in spite of the exterior influ- ences brought to bear upon them; men who were able to withstand the ridicule of the great metropolitan press; men who were able to withstand the influence which the money power of the country knew so well how to bring to bear; men who were able to withstand the influences of the ad- ministration and were willing to forego the favors of the executive, for the pur- pose of doing that which they considered to be right. The conference report, or compromise, was not satisfactory to him. He had not expected that it would be. Nothing would be satisfactory to him save free coinage of silver. That was the only logical way to dispose of the question. It was the only way that it would be ever settled. The conference bill was, at the best, a temporary expedient as the Bland bill had been, and the next congress would be vexed with the question as much as the present congress was. Mr. George asked Mr. Teller why the provision had been put into the bill, that with Capt. Clarke, his the minimum silver coinage of two mill- j gineer. ions a month should be discontinued after July 1, 1891, if the secretary of the treas- ury thought proper. Mr. Teller replied that he could not pvejany reason for it but he supposed that iat was another compromise. He had made a calculation as to the in- crease of currency that would take place under the conference bill. The purchase of ounces of silver at yesterday's price, per ounce, would require the issue of H, in treasury notes. At per ounce the amount of the treasury notes to be issued would be per month; at at 000, and at par per month, or a year. The discussion was interrupted at 3 o'clock and the bill went over without action; the senate passing from that sub- ject to the memorial exercises in respect- to the memory of the late Representative Cox of Xevv York. Mr. Hiscock offered the resolution of sorrow and sympathy md delivered a brief eulogy. Mr. Yoorhees spoke of Mr. Cox as one who--e life was free from stain, speck or blemish. a brave man mentally, mor- ally and physically; a man who laughed danger in the face, and tbo law of whose being was liberality. Mr. Shermau paid his tribute to the private and public life of Mr Cox, and was, at so affected, as to forced to pause until he mastered his eniolon. After addresses by Mr. Vest and Mr. Dixon. Mr. Evarts eulogized Mr. Cox. It was not doubted, he said, that Mr. Cox had served the state from boyhood up: that he had labored for her and loved her; that for society and friendship and man- kind, he did what enobled and expanded him. and that he was enrolled on the list of whose memory would not willingly suffer to out of The resolution was adopted, and r a further mark of respect the senate adjourned.
