What. Two California Oongre;&
TOE ELOQUENCE OP MR. ROWERS
In Defending tho Oood
Ca'iforula wan njaln luard from at
tbe livening reaslnti, The hnuaa was
practically empty when called to order,
at 7 o'clock, but liy 8 o'clock about
three-fourths ot the members were lu
their scats und the galleries were full to
ovtrllowlng. Unwers, fortunately, was
not called upon until he bnd au audi
ence of sufficient size to justify another
a miplo of California oratory. Frequent
applause drowned his remarks. Dowers
Btoke but 10 minute.
HU speech, lu part, Is &s follows.
"Mr. Speaker: In 10 minutes one
cannot htoj) to mluco words. I nm, sir,
the Judge of my duty as a Itepubllcun
and us tbe representative of tho people
who sent tue here, We excused our
selves for our votes yesterday on the
'larlfTfor revonueouljji',foy the claim as
stated here, that au emergency had
arisen, and wo must uct promptly
That emergency we claimed jeslerday
we had provided for.
"Now what au emergency has
urleon that requires this hasto in au
thorizing the Issuo of more bouds,whlle
tiio president has unlimited power to
Issue bonds, and this bill In no wine
restricts that power. Indeed, we were
told by tho impels this morning Hint
he Is unw negotiating for Uo Issuo and
salo of $200,000,000 of bonds, nud that
trie sale will be concluded within a few
days, either with the syndicate that
took tho other bond', or with Russia,
Irrespective of what this house may do.
I know of nothing to cause this except
that, tho other day, two or three Block
gamblers in tho city of New York
felled, and wo were told yesterduy that
one of those would probably get upon
bis feet before bo wns counted out.
"Stripped of Its wrappings, divested
of all Its attempted disguise, this bill
appears to mo a proposition to destroy
greenbacks all of them. It either
means that or It means nothing. Gen
tlemen of tho Republican side of tbe
bouse, aro you ready to do that ? Who
has naked you to dolt? The people?
No. Tbe Democratlo president In his
last fiautlo meesuge to this bouso asked
for it. That was tho alpha and omega
of that message 'destroy greenbacks
and issue bonds.' "
This demand was echoed by tho
baukora and bond speculators of New
Y.irk. You know that tho people of
tbe United States are opposed to tbo
destruction of greenbaoks.Thoy remem
ber that greenbacks enabled them to
carry to a successful conclusion, a war
for the preservation of tbe Union.
They know that for twenty-flvo years
thereafter, greenbacks oontluued to be
tbo money of the people, and we hod
no other money during tho most
prosperous era of this republic. These
greenbecks during all tbese years,
wero 'sound mouoy,' 'honest dollars,'
up to the day that Grovor Cleveland
was inaugurated president of tbe
Uultee States, and raised cry, 'de
s roy Ibe greenbacks and Issue bonda I'
"Every one of you Republicans, and
I want to talk to Reimullcius, when
upon tbe stump addressing your con
stltuteDts, has denounced tbe president
for doing exictly what you propose to
do In Indorsing this bill. You know
that this bill cannot becouis a law.
You know, every ouo of you, that It
cannot pass the senate of tbe Uulted
Slates. But with a passage of tbl. bill
by tbe voiejof the Republican maor
ity hero the inisoblef is accomplished
and you have become participants aud
8 larers, not with tbe Democratlo party
but with the Democratlo administra
tion, In the Is ue of these bonds, and
you have got to meet that responsibil
ity, every one of you. Yon have got
lonneud all ynu- t'liio In the next
canvass explalul:g why you did luU,
why you gathered under Cleveland's
umbrella In this storm. (Applause on
tho Deruocrotlc side).
"I appeal to you RspuWIiMu In the
mnr,u o( the tttllant Bbe.ldm, when
In Shenandoah valley, he found his
men flying before tue enemy, he said:
'Roys face the other way.' I ask ymi
Republicans to face the Hlwr way.
Face the enemy. Stand with llictw..
I pie who sont you hire."
Representative Brham followed Mr.
Bowers. He said 16 part: ' I am lint
au American and ascoud a Republican.
Tbe bill which Is mider discussion is
neither nti Atno'lci't nor a Rspuhlitnu
measure The UniCt ectlou of tho bill
Isaratlfhatlou of J the disgraceful
manipulations of Mr. Cleveland aud
his secretary of the, treasuiy with n
foreign syndicate. u which the people
lost more than J6.000.000. If it is In
tended to deal fairly .'with the people,
why was not tbe plan en ordinary
amendment of tho act of 1875, tmltlux
It necessary to adrerllse for bids on the
sate of bonds and each reduoe tho rata
of Interest to 8 per cent? Then Ameri
can people would b placed on equal
terms with Wall sluet.
"It Is perfectly apparont that tbls
bill la In the Interest, those Institu
tions and pjople wao,cau control large
sums of money, audw bo are seeking
longtime loans. Now look at tho
second section. It royld.a for a low
rate of Interest (3 per, cent) aud shod
tine bonds. Why should this dlncrlm
inatlon be made aualust our own pen
plv? Tbls bill U a creature of Grovor
Cleveland. I am now aud always bavo
been opposed to bondiissues lu tttuo of
peace, aud If Mr. Cleveland will up
prof o tho bill which was passed by the
liouse yesterday, no farther emergency
legislation will be neocesauy by tbls
cpngr04s. Tbe revenues will bo amply
sufficient for all tho purposes of the
uovernmeut, and If he seas proper to
yeto yesterday'u action by tbls house,
lot him, and hit party, If bo has any
left, acoount to tbe people Tho con
ditions are bad enough now without
plnctng further and more doubtful and
daugoiou leglslattoniibtu the hands of
this administration." ''

A Woman's Charges Against Rv.
O. O. Brown.
Han Fkancioco, Dec. 31. Mrs.
Mary Davidson, tbe (Sunday school
teaobir who was arrested Saturday
night on complaint of her pastor, Rev.
C. O. Brown, of the First Congrega
tional church, by whom sho was
cbargwl with extortion, Is still In
pilson, uiiablo lo obtain ball. Her
surrounding", however, bavo not
nhangml her attitude In tbe case, and
she rays she believes tbe truth of her
charges against tho minister will
ultimately be established. Dr. Brown
Is as steadfast In his deolarati ins of

Davidson to Hnn Quontln If It Is within
Mrs. Davidson's urrcst has created
great aalnnlidimcut In church circle
where she Is well known. While bet
friends are loath to belloyo that she
would willfully attempt to destroy tbe
good name of au tuuoceut man, the
members of the congregation unite In
expressing their faith In Dr. Brown's
ability to demonstrate the falsity of
tbe charges brought against him. In
discussing the caso Mrs. Davidson said:
"Oh, but, that man is far from what

from the counterfeit, for tbo latter
always bears some marks of true metal.
Ho Is a oounterfelt and a hypocrite.
"Dr. Brawn's verbosity Is buoh that
he might surround San Francisco with
a string of wordstlu his endeavors to
defeud himself, but be cannot efface
tho faols. The damnable acts of which
he knows ho has been guilty, will ever
