MHB1G THIS SESSION
Yesterdays Vote in the House
Demonstrated This Fact.
ACTION ON WILSON'S RESOLUTION
Debate "Was Brilliant, nml "Was Par
ticipated in, by the Hcav)- Men of
the Various Parties.
"WASHINGTON, Feb. 14. Although it
was known that an attempt would be
made in the house today to pass the res
olution authorizing the issue of G per
cent gold bonds, the attendance on the
floor was not large when the speaker
called the house to order, at 11 o'clock.
This was probably due to the fact that
many members supposed the house woull
meet at noon, as usual. Despite the small
attendance, however, there was much ex
citement on the floor. As soon as the
journal had been read, Catcnings, from
the rules committee, reported the special
order under which the- house was to oper
ate. It was as follows:
"Resolved, That immediately upon the
adoption of this rule, the house shall pro
ceed, lis in committee of the whole, in
consideration of house resolution No. 255
(the bond resolution), and at the hour of
5 o'clock this day the previous question
shall be considered as ordered on said
resolution, and then, without intervening
motion, votes shall be taken thereon
until the same shall have been finally dis
Catchlngs promptly demanded the pre
vious question as soon as the reading of
the resolution had been completed. On
a rising vote, the previous question was
ordered-50 to 1L PIckler made the point
of no quorum, but withdrew It, and before
time for debate could be claimed under
the rule, the vote recurred on the adop
tion of the order. It resulted 56 to. 17.
Simpson again made the point of r.o
quorum. Simpson and Catchlngs, as tell
ers, took their places, and for over half
an hour they waited patiently for the
belated arrivals to make up the coveted
quorum. With the arrival of members
came a stream of visitors in the galleries,
and at 11.52, when Catchings reported a
quorum, the hall of representatives pre
sented an animated appearance. The
vote had resulted 152 to 28 in favor of the
special order. Simpson, who remarked
sarcastically, sotto voce, that he was
trying to protect the president against
the vindictive assaults of republicans,
recreant democrats and cuckoos, made
no attempt to get the ayes and noes, and
the special order was declared adopted.
Before the debate began the speaker
announced that he would recognize two
members of the committee on ways and
means, "Wilson and Reed, in the affirma
tive, and Hopkins and Bryan to the nega-
unouea lor aeoate, tne remaining hour
to be given to debate under the five-min
Wilson, chairman of the ways and
means committee, who opened the de
bate, cautioned the house at the very
outset that unless the debate could be re
stricted to the resolution from the ways
and means to the exclusion of all parti
sanship, it would be impossible to vote
Intelligently on the question at its con
clusion. He then proceeded to carefully
state the case, covering the ground trav
ersed by his report to the house yester
day. He said there was no dearth of
revenues in the treasury. Today he dis
covered there was an available cash bal
ance in the treasury of $165,000,000, a
larger balance than on June CO, 1S92, by
SS6.000.000. when it was $129,000,000, including
the gold reserve. Today the gold reserve
stood at 542,213,000. He reviewed the his
tory of the gold reserve, established to
insure the resumption of specie paymenls,
"The reserve was not threatened until
the ranlc in 1S93. when in a single month
(November) $24,000,000 of gold had been
withdrawn. In the course of the panic of
1SS3 the $53,000,000 of bank trust funds
had been passed to the available assets
of the treasury. Since then bonds have
been sold three times to replenish the
gold in the treasury, twice within six
months. The previous operation of the
treasury resulted in the United States
exchanging its own bonds for its own
gold, and now Secretary Carlisle has done
what Secretary Sherman did time and
again when he was refunding the public
debt he has purchased gold in other
markets than our own."
Wiison contrasted the situation of the
treasury in 1SS2 with its situation now in
regard to the burden to be borne by the
gold reserve, saying:
"Then no greenbacks were being pre
sented for redemption, and the reserve
was only necessary for practical pur
poses to support the outstanding silver,
amounting to $200,000,000. Today it sup
ports the entire currency fabric $300.
00"000 of outstanding legal tenders and
treasury notes; $500,000,000 of over-valued
silver, and all the national bank notes
"You admit," interrupted Dingley. "that
$111,000,000 of gold have been purchased
to maintain the gold reserve. How did
the treasury obtain the money to meet the
deficiency in the reserve of $109,000,000?"
Wilson replied that, as he had stated on
a former occasion, it was partly true, by
the operation of the "endless chain"
process by which gold was drained from
the treasury, some of the money obtained
from the sale of bonds nad been trans
ferred to other accounts and had been
used to defray current expenses. He
called Dingley's attention to the fact that
under the national act of 1S71. the bank
notes being redeemable by the treasury
they ooukl be used by conversion to drain
the treasury of gold as well as the legal
Dingley, however, persisted upon, a more
specific answer to his original question
end Wilson finally admitted that a large
amount of the gold received from the sale
of bonds had been used to meet deficiency
In the revenues. Then Dingley, recurring
to Wilson's former statement about the
transfer of the bank trust funds to the
available assets of the treasury, declared
that net $1 of that fund had been used to
defray current expenses.
"The difference between your methods

of democratic applause, "IsTujat when we

Dingley insisted that thygund was not
used until 1S93, whercuponlSYllson cited
him Secretary Windom'sT-gport stating
that September 1, 1S90, thefavailable cash
in the treasury was the amount of the
trust fund turned over toth'at account
In the preceding July. TK& ended the
questioning between the leaders and Wil
son continued his argumentlwhere it had
been broken off by Dlngleyjailnterruption.
He said: aP
"Secretary Carlisle in botrpwing this
gold had only done whajir, Sherman
had done. He had sold 4 peracent 30-year
bonds at the rate of lOliSaffrlth the right
to substitute at par 3 per entgold "bonds.
If the government continiSpo maintain
its traditional policy the 4Jpcrycent bonds
would be virtually payabledjjgold because
the government was bound'tojmaintain all
its currency on a parity, jlSa the bonds
will be paid in gold it is thflsense of the
ways and means commltteeSthat there
ought not to be any hesitatSQa.m making
these bonds payable in goj!and taving

cannot be set aside; It Is maflcunder am
ple provision of law. Thejquestlon pre
sented here is whether weXwill substitute
for. a 4 per cent coin 30-yea3bon& a 3 pec
cent gold bend."'
Wilson asserted that forj25, years the
gold standard had beenlfthe practical
money basis in this countryjlthat gentle
men confused the standardjpf payment
with the currency of payment. Two ex
periments had failed to giye relief, and
now the treasury had beenfobliged to re
sort, as it had under Secretary Sherman,
to a special contract. jK
McMillin asked if it wc-ulqfhot be pos
sible to raid the gold reservelfh the future
as in the past, Wilson replled'that It has
undoubtedly been possiblejslnce the first
day of the resumption off specie pay
ments, but said it would noVbe done if
we can maintain confidenceTso that our
currency will be as good asfgold. Hopkins
said the resolution was whjsther the gov
ernment at this late day snould, by the
extraordinary methods of President
Cleveland and his secrelaryjTof the treas
ury, change its cstablishedSjjtirrenoy un
der 35 years of republican JQufe and make
its bonds payable in gold. "iHe added:
"Why did not the president-call the at
tention of these foreign capitalists to the
fact that his country had ajspltled policy?
If the statement of the gentleman from
West Virginia had been true that coin
was really as good as gold, and meant the
same thing, why had notpjhe president
told the capitalists so? Til oppose this
resolution because it willin' my judg
ment, destroy the credit of the United
States. In the future it would, be neces
sary to put the word gold into every bond.

Even the loans of this administration
have been before made in open market
with the American people In the light of
day; they have been made for 10 years
at less than 3 per cent. Now the adminis
tration has made a contract with a for
eign syndicate by which the government
will receive $S0,500 less than similar bonds
were selling for in the open market on
the very day the president sent his con
tract to congress with the bribe of $16,000,
000 to get its consent. A secret loan was
negotiated for higher rates than any
civilized country was paying on its debt,
higher even than bankrupt Egypt, little
Norway, or any other country. The presi
dent penned this message not from pa
triotic purposes, but for politics, and that
alone. He wanted to throw the responsi
bility on congress of making this loan
negotiated by his former law partner. I
say for one. and I hope I speak for the
entire republican side and the great mass
of the democratic party, that I cannot be
made particeps crimlnis to this attempt
of the president to prostitute the finan
cial standing of this great country."
Cox of Virginia How does it happen
that by this contract -this syndicate will
have an option on future bond issues by
Hopkins Nobody but the syndicate and
the president can answer that.
Powers sent to the clerk's desk an
amendment providing that nothing in the
resolution should be construed as chang
ing the avowed policy of the government
to pay all its outstanding bonds in gold.
Hopkins then yielded to Cannon. The
latter sketched with biting sarcasm the
attempts made to pass legislation for the
relief of the treasury, saying the presi
dent's last message was responsible for
the Springer bill's "second birth." He de
nounced the contract made by the secre
tary of the treasury, and when he ex
pressed the opinion that, had a republi
can secretary made that contract, this
democratic house would have impeached
him, the republican side gave him round
after round of applause.
Grosvenor, a member of the ways and
means committee, opposed the resolution.
Addressing himself to the charge that
those who were opposing the resolution
were aiding to destroy the honor, credit
and integrity of the government, he point
ed out that, without consultation with
congress, the secretary of the treasury
had privately entered into a contract with
the Rothschilds and the Morgans to pur
chase with coin bonds of the government
at a rate of interest almost 1 per cent
higher than the last bond Issue, and now
gave congress the option of substituting
for these coin bonds gold bonds at 3
per cent. The only alternative offered
congress was to go back on a long-established
precedent of the government
and authorize gold instead of coin bonds.
Continuing, he said:
"Not the honor, credit or integrity of
j the government is involved. This is an
cial policy. If gold bonds are issued at
the demand of Lombard street, never will
another coin bond be issued by the gov
ernment. Then what is to become of the
millions of coin bonds sold to our own
people? Their value would depreciate.
This is a resolution to depreciate them,
and I will never vote for It."
Daniels of New York, in a three-minute
speech, argued in support of the resolu-

FOR THE THIRD TIME
Failure of the Administration to
Secure Financial Legislation.
FIRST CAME THE CARLISLE BILL
It "Was FolIoTveil ly Springer' Bill,
and Xotv, Lite These Two, "Wil
son's Resolution Is Defeated.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 14. The third at
tempt by the administration this session
to secure legislation looking to the relief
of the treasury failed in the house today.
First the Carlisle bill for reform of the
currency system went down, next the bill
for the issue of $500,000,000 gold bonds and
the retirement of the legal tenders, rec
ommended in the president's special mes
sage, was defeated last Thursday by a
majority of 27, and today the house, by
a majority of 47, refused to order a third
reading of the resolution by which it was
proposed to authorize the issue of $63,000,
000 of 3 per cent gold bonds to substitute
for the 4 per cent 30-year bonds sold by
Secretary Carlisle under contract with
the Rothschild-Morgan syndicate.
The action of the house today was the
culmination of the exciting events which
have occurred since the president sent
his special message to congress, which re
sulted in the report from the ways and
means committee of the resolution to au
thorize the issue of gold bonds. A special
order was brought as soon as the house
met today to bring the resolution to a vote
at 5 o'clock. The debate upon the resolu
tion, which lasted five hours, was Inter
esting, and sometimes inflammable in
character. The galleries were packed,
and there was much confusion on the
floor, but the interest centered in the
course which the republicans would pur
sue, it being conceded that the fate of
the resolution rested with them. There
was much maneuvering among the lead
ers. The republicans west of the Alle
ghenies, led by Hopkins and Cannon of
Illinois, started off with impetuous
speeches against a gold-bond issue that
would discriminate against bonds already
Reed and his Eastern friends sought in
private conference to rally all to unite
in action. His plan was to allow the reso
lution to go to a third reading and then
move to recommit it, with instructions to
report back a bill similar to that which
he offered as a. substitute for the bond
bill last week, providing for 3 per cent
bonds. For a time it seemed possible that
this arrangement would be agreed to, but
after the stirring speech of Hepburn the
Middle and Western republicans broke
away, determined to defeat the third read
ing of the resolution, lest by some chance
It might carry if it passed this parlia
mentary stage. The Eastern republicans
then decided to support it.

IX THE SENATE.
Decisive Action on the Financial
Question Tiot Far Off.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 14. When the
senate met today, the high tension of
the finacial situation was clearly evident
from the groups of senators who discussed
the subject. A rumor soon gained circula
tion that a suggestion had been made
that a resolution be adopted directing and
advising the executive branch of the gov
ernment to cancel the contract with the
bankers for the sale of $62,400,000 bonds.
With the several financial bills on the
calendar and on the table, it was felt
that decisive action one way or the other
was not far off.
During the debate on the postoflice bill,
the presiding officer intervened to present
the response of Secretary Carlisle to the
comprehensive resolution presented by
Gorman, for information as to the condi
tion of the treasury. Its elaborate detail
of figures was followed with close atten
tion by Gorman, Cockrell and Allison, al
though it was too statistical to engage
general attention. Before its reading
ended, Gorman proposed it would be de
sirable to have it in pamphlet form, ready
for use tomorrow, and this was ordered.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 14. Secretary
Carlisle, in his reply to the resolution
introduced by Gorman, says the original
reserve augmented by the gold proceeds
of the sale of bonds was diminished dur
ing 25 months to the extent of $172,674,315,
of which $103,002,143 was directly or indi
rectly devoted to current expenses, and
$67,672,172 of which had been converted into
notes in the process of redemption was
still on hand.
"It is proper to state in this connec
tion," says the secretary, "that when
United States treasury notes of 1S00 were
redeemed in gold they were received into
and held as part of the general cash as
sets in the treasury, same as any other
money belonging to the government, and
under the acts of May 31, 1S78, and July 1!,
1MM), they were paid out when necessary to
defray public expenses. Whenever it is
possible to do so, redeemed notes have been
used to procure gold coin by exchange
with banks and other financial institu
tions, and in this way a large amount of
gold was restored to the gold-reserve fund
during the summer of 1S93, and some since
-e A POPULIST ADDRESS
The Members of Senate and House to
the People of the Country.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 14. The populist
members of the senate and house, whose
names arc attached, besides the others
whose signatures are given, have issued
the following address to the members of
the people's party:
"As early as 1S63-66 a conspiracy was en
tered into between the gold gamblers of
Europe and America to accomplish the
"To fasten upon the people of the United
States the burdens of a perpetual debt;
to destroy the greenbacks which brought
us safely through the perils of the war; to
strike down silver as a money metal, and
to deny to the people the use of federal
paper, the two independent sources of
I money supply guaranteed by the constitu
tion; to fasten upon the country the
single gold standard of Great Britain and
to delegate to the thousands of banking
corporations, organized for private gain,
the sovereign control for all time over
the issue and volume of all supplemental
paper currency. Thus they doubled the
demands for gold, forced upon the coun
try an appreciating money standard, en
tailing an Indefinite period of falling
prices; robbed enterprise of Its just prof
Its; condemned labor to Idleness and
confiscated the property of debtors.
"For nearly 30 years these conspirators
have kept the masses quarreling over the
most important matters, while they have
j pursued, with, uurelenun zeal, their own
purpose. At the present moment every
device of treachery; every resource of
statecraft, and every artifice known to
the secret cabals of the International gold
ring are being made use of to deal a
final death blow to the prosperity of the
country- They seek to accomplish their
purpose before the blow can be averted
through the ballot. Their plans have long
matured, and their line Is fully chosen.
They address themselves to the one sub
jectthe money question in all of its
breadth and magnitude. This brings the
country face to face with a perilous issue
which calls for immediate and united ac
tion on the part of the people. Every
behest of patriotism requires that we shall
at once meet the issue and accept the
challenge so defiantly offered. To falter
now is to invite disastrous failure
"We earnestly urge the populists
throughout the country to concentrate
their entire force and energy upon the
tremendous contention presented, and
thus meet the enemy upon his chosen
line of battle. Invite the aid and co-operation
of all persons who favor the, im
mediate free coinage of silver at the ratio
of 16 .to 1; the issue of all paper money
by the general government without the
intervention of banks of issue, and who
are opposed to the issue of interest-bearing
government bonds In time of peace.
In a word, to extend the hand of fellow

money question, which is certainly the
mightiest and most fundamental contro
versy evolyed during the present cen

The President's Interpretation of the
Action of the House.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 14. The time for
the president to formally ratify the con

syndicate to purchase $65,000,000 in
gold- by selling $62,000,000 in 4 per cent 30
year bonds on the 3 per cent interest
basis, does not expire until February 10.
The opinion is, however, expressed to
night in financial circles that the presi
dent will regard the action of the house
today as indicative of its purpose not to
pass any gold-bond measure, and thit he
will at once order 4 per cent coin bonds

(Isaac Pusey Gray was born in Chester
county, Penn., October 28, 1S28. A few
years after his birth his parents removed
to Ohio, and from 1836 to 1855 he lived at
New Madison, Ohio. There he was for
some time a clerk in a dry goods store,
in which he, in course of time, became a
partner and finally sole proprietor. In 1ST.5
Mr. Gray removed to Union City, Ind.,
where he opened a store and carried on
business for three years. He then began
the practice of law. When the war broka
out he entered the federal service and
was made colonel of the Fourth Indiana
cavalry. He saw no active service and
was compelled to resign on account of
bad health. When he recovered his health
he engaged in recruiting a regiment of
infantry and served until the close of the
war. Mr. Gray was an unsuccessful can
didate for the republican nomination for
congress in 1861. In 1866 he was elected
to the state senate. In 1S72 he joined the
democratic party, after finding he could
not secure the republican nomination for
congress. In 1876 he was elected lieutenant-governor
of Indiana on the ticket
with James D. Williams, and when the
latter (best known as "Blue Jeans" Will
iams) died three months before the ex
piration of his term, Mr. Gray became
governor. In 1880 he was again a candi
date for lieutenant-governor, but was de
feated. In 18S4 Mr. Gray was the demo
cratic candidate for governor of Indiana.
Mr. Cleveland carried the state for presi
dent and Mr. Gray was elected governor.
Mr. Gray was urged by the Indiana dele
gation at the Chicago convention in 1892
for presidential candidate, but gave way
to Mr. Cleveland in the expectation of
being made candidate for vice-president,
in which he was disappointed.)

port fire department horses, becoming old,
were sold this week to John Crimons, a

arrived home with the horses just as the

was a. fire alarm, ran three miles down the
turnpike, wrecking a number of buggies
on the way with their big farm wagon.
Finding no fire, the horses finally turned

LORD THE END AND II
The Plot of the Republican Cau
cus Bolters' Laid Bare.
LORD SENATOR, KINCAID GOVERNOR
This the Bolters Have Been Plotting
to Brlufc Ahout With the Assist
ance of Dissatisfied Populists.
For the twentieth time, and on as many;
different days, Oregon's legislature yes
terday in joint assembly voted for United
States senator, and for the twentieth
time the vote was practically the same.
The opening ballot and those taken last
week and this resulted:
SALEM, Feb. 11. Ycung Lowell is here
today from Pendleton, and Is taking in
the legislature In a gecd-natured way. He
is a bright young man, and knows that
he is not seriously in the senatorial race.
The effort of some people to make his
friends think he is in the race rather puz
zles him. His presence here has served
one useful purpose, however, for it has
been incidentally the means of bringing
out the true situation of the senatorial
Almost at the beginning of the senatorial
contest The Oregonian pointed out that
disaffection on the part of some republi
cans with the caucus action was being
used in the Interests directly of Governor
Lord and Secretary of State Kincaid, that
the one might be made senator and the
other come Into the governorship. The
Oregonian's publication of the facts con
cerning the matter scattered such alarm
into the camp of the abettors of this
plot that they subsided, and on the sur
face the campaign was apparently aban
doned. The anti-Dolph republicans have varied
their votes among different candidates,
with no apparent method. It has been
known that Fulton had a contingent
among the SO votes who were holding on
in hopes that perhaps he might eventual
ly be chosen. Such a following also had
Tongue, Hermann, Lcwell and others.
These little coteries of friends of different
mep, some not naming their choice Jn" bal
by th"e? promoters? ofcfoh'eajGcusjlbcdfoln
the idea that something would "soonMe
velop whereby Hermann could be elected.
Other means failing, the populist combi
nation has been resorted to as a method
of bolstering up the fading hopes of thesa
various sets of bolters. Fulton himself
knows that he Is not seriously a candi
date, yet his friends are being urged to
stand out agiir.st Dolph because Fulton
may yet be elected by populist votes.
Lowell knows that he is not seriously, a.
candidate, yet bis friends are beguiled into
standing out for hhn with promises that
some way will be found to elect him.
Now, the method in all this apparent
madness is that through this deception
these men are kept in this state merely
tentatlvely, so that when populist votes
enough ara secured, Lcrd may be sprung
and elected. Lord is the end and aim of
all this apparently crazy temporizing. The
reason he Is not given more support in the)
daily ballot Is because the opposition can
be kept out more effectively by encour
aging them In the belief that their partic
ular choices can prevail.
Rumor is busy also with a repetition of
the chargss formerly made that offices
within the gift of the governor are being
promised as rewards for the desertion of
Dolph. All gubernatorial appointments,
of which few have yet been made,
will be rigorously scrutinized for evidence
of any such consideration. One of the
worst things about the whole affair is tho
danger, thus directly made threatening,
of an extra session, with all its expense
and possibilities of evil. It seems incredi
ble that such a programme can be allowed
to go to successful completion, in full view
and with the full knowledge of the people
Here are the facts, and if they are not
heeded it will not be because they have
not been made public. If the people whose
representatives are now either knowingly
or unknowingly aiding in this plot have
any Influence over these representatives,
now is the time to exert it.
