Mi . Ti.m.i i. Mr. Speaker, I rise to a
ijut'Dti jii ol piivilegp.
Tim Sri. akkii. lliu genllftnan will
it itu it.
Mr Tom. ii.. Mr. Speaker, I bold lo
in v ban. I a cncular, ailbout sigoaturri,
Willi. ti' lie iuipiiut of tbe printer,
claiming to l corlitled from tlio Con
KifMBionai l;c'jrd, circulated extensively
in Hie Mite ol Oregon, intended to af
lect the utti ii wbicb lakes place tbere
two iMcka f i oiu nckt Monday. Il pur
pjris lo givn a tti'umout of uiy actloDS
and voti'H u jicii arious measure before
cougrora, und ciiiug the pages of tbe
Kfcord to ubttsDtiate tbe itatcuient.
There is i.ol iu Ibis circular a single
truth !aUtl in a truthful way. Three
nuariera of it ia absolutely untrue and
I tin J tho circular has been forwarded
uutlcr llio authority ol a committee that
iscomiioted wholly of members ol tbe
United Siities (Senate aud members cf
Una House. It is foraartJetl under tbe
authority of u committee that calls itself
a dtTiiLcratic congressional committee.
That committee ia presided over by Sen
ator W hite as chairman, aud its vice
chitiriuau is Mr. Osborne, a member of
thia ilcuac. It has for Ua executive
commit tee four senators, eight repre
sentatives, bl'I ono delegate, and the
elminnun of this executive committee 4s
tho distinguished senator from Arkan
sas, who is also the chairman of tbe na
Thi, Mr. Speaker, ia the'couimittef
that lias circulated iu my district an
auoiiymous tlander upon my persona
and offl-'lal record and falsifying tbe
records of thia congress. I desire briefly
to call the attention of this House to
some of these statements. I want to
deny them here, where the records can
bo produced, and where my statements
cuu be contradicted if they aro not true.
The tii ut charge is that during this en
tiiu BcFstou of congress, covering about
nine months, I have been absent or (ailed
to respoud to twenty six roll calls. Now.
I liuvo nut taken Ihe pains to verify tbis
statement. The charge is that I have
failed to do my duty or have dodged my
retponbibility as a member. I want sim
ply to cay that every member of this
lloueo knows bow these roll calls are
soractiuics made. I Lave a minute on
ono invasion when tbere wore seyeu di
vision uud seven roll calls in one after
noon. It was ut a time whan tbe gentle
iiiun fivm Tex. is (Mr. liailey was not
desiring to do business, and be tailed for
litem) tlivisious uud roll calls wbou on
four vwU's thuro were lesa lluu Uveinem
ben voting ia the uegUivo.
I liuvo lift luisse.l an important ses-
aion cf llua House nor a vote upou an
important quoatiou wbeu it was possible
lo be pretnTit, and believe my alteuduoce
will compare favorably with that of any
member of tho House.
Another charge ia thia:
I'rito lo bta Kni?lisli luMluctis lie oUtl lo al
low t'cliitilo at'ullug iu tbo wuteia of tlio l'a
ciiic, iiicri'liy coutluulug tlio ilostiucllou of the
So far ua that matter ia concerned, I
want to ray what every member of tbe
Houso knows that under tbe deciaion of
Ihu I'aria Tribunal citizens of every
couutry on earth have the right to fish
for bouIs iu the open sea. The bill intro
duced iu congress undertook to preclude
American oiti.ons from enjoying tbe pre
cise privileges enjoyed by the citizens of
Cuuuda; aud one of tho members of this
committeo in vpttng against this bill de
nounced It because, of that fact; aud
most ol tho committee, I think, voted
aguiust excluding au American citizen
from privileges enjoyed by til tbe world.
Another charge is:

THOMAS H. TONGOE
autl to railroad through a bill umKr coiiaulcra-tluulntohlngr-lr''.4'.
(fc Itvconl, pace
Tbis is ao absolute, uniiunlified mis
representation. The bill referred to was
a bill providing appropriations for legis
lative, executive, and judicial expenres.
It was a bill iuvolving very little con
troversy ; yet having been inirrduced on
the 141U of December, it waa debate. I cn
every legislative day from that time un
til the Ilth of January, At tbat time I
voted at the opening of tbe setslon to
terminate debate at o'clock that eve
ning Yet a bill tbat was under discus
sion longer than any other bill tbat has
been under discussion io tbia Houso Ibis
tcaeion I am charged with "railroading
through." I am (urlbcr charged with
Votvtl to make tbe Mudutcr uutl miners ol
cold lu Oreiiou )ny the coat of IraoaiKirtallon to
the minis I ruin Uie a-say oflievs thereby pulling
an additional burden on an linortot Industry
.f Ins Hate. -
IVrmit me to say, Mr. Speaker, that
thia charge is absolutely incorrect.
There is no assay office in the state of
Oregon. The miners are now compelled
to send tbe products of their mines to tbe
mint at San Francisco, or sometimes to
tbe assay office in Idaho. I am anxious
to baye an assay office established in my
State. I was Inclined to think that tbe
most effective way to do so was to vote
to amend tho law wiiu respect to the
paymeot for transpoiiiug bullion from
the assay offices to the mint ; and I did
so vote for that purpose. But that
measure dose not lay a single additional
burdeu upon a single miner in tbe State
J am also charged with having "voted
in favor of an extravagant monument in
the little town of Danville, ill., involving
half a million dollars ef expense"; laugh
ter, while tbere is nothing to show that
I have attempted to do a like thing for
tbe people of my district.
l'ermit me to say, with reference to
tbat. Mr. Speaker, that the bill referred
to as a measure lor "an extravagant
monument" provided for the completion
of the construction of a soldier's home at
Danville. 111. The construction of that
home bad been authorized by a previous
law of Congress snd an appropriation of
1 100, 00 J had been made lot that purpose.
Tbe Appropriations Committee unan
imously reported in favor of au appropria
tions of IJOO.OJO to carry ou that work;
and I voted against the motion t j strike
It out. Upon that motion 73 voted "aye"
1J3 "no." and 15S failed to vote; uud
ouly two of the members of this executive
committee voted to strike it out. II that
was "au extravaguut monument," then
those members ol the executive commit
tee who voted (or it were falliuit ti do
"Au extravagaut monument 1" Il will
be, Mr, Speaker, when it ia completed, a
"monument" ol ihe gratitude of this
nation to its brave defenders iu tbo hour
of its great peril, and itia u"iuoauuieni"
for which I am pi oud to bavd hul Ihe
privilege of recording my vote.
Agaiu it says, on .lauuary -3, when ihe
proposition to apiropriate -S3,fJ0s) for
tbe Methodist Bojk Anenta' Association
was being considered aud adopted bv the
Home, "he dodged tho question aud did
not vote." Iu extenuation or explanat
ion of tbat, Mr. Speaker, it is ouly nec
essary for mo to say, w ilu refereuco to
the little truth embodied iu the state
bent, that wbeu this matter was before
tbe House and was being discussed, in
my judgemetit uuoeceeearily, with a
certainty that on a nual voto tbe bill
would be passed by a large majority, I
did not stop to find out wbeu the vote
would be taken or to listen to the dis
cusslou, because there was no question
at to what the vote ol the House would
I had work to do, and havo had work
to do, culsid of my duties iu connection
with Ihe tessions of tho House of Itepre
sen tat ires. 1 have been ret:eesirly com
pelled lo go lo Ihe various departments
of the liovernmjnt to look alter matters
therein which my constituents wne
interested. I may slate in passing that
I have secured over VYi pnoaions in my
district, something like 40 new poet
offices, and increased mail facilities In
20 different localities. I Lave l tailed the
War Department many ticiea to urge
prosecution and completion of needed
public improvements. It. is important
that a member who performs the duties
be ought to perform for the bent-lit of
lilt conntitneots wbould alttnd to those
outside matt irs as well us to his duties
It is further alleged that L voted in
favor of "aylng United Stales bonds In
gold, thus adding to the profits of the
bondholders an J iuci easing the burdens
of those engaged in agriculture and
every other producing interest." Tbis
is not true in any seneof the world.
Th ore has never been a measure intro
duced here to pay United sutea bonds
In go'd. They are not paying them in
gold to-day. Oat of tbe payment dur
ing the Uat year by the Treasury of the
United States, including every dollar
paid upon United States bond, amount
ing to something like .MT.OJ.I.iaK) paid
through tbe Treasury, tbe eubtreaeurics,
and the clearing house in New York, lees
than fi.0u0.0U0 was paid in gull, and
137,000,000 of interest paid upon bonds
was included iu the s'ums thus) paid. Iu
these payments more than mx dollars
was paid iu silver an J silver ortilicatoi
to every dollar in ge l I.
I say, therefore, that that Etateuient is
absolutolv and unqualifiedly without
It is further alleged that I "dedged the
vote" when tbe bankruptcy bill was
under consideration in tue House, a bill
'which would give relief to hundreds' of
deUirsiuLis own elate" and ihr.ogh
out tbe country. That is absolutely un
true al-.o. Tte very page of I be Kecord
to which reference is made here contra
dicts tbe etory and shows it-i fulsity. I
voted with the gentleman from Ark
ansas llr. Terry j to recommit the bill
with instructions, and I ols) voted on
the passage of tbe bill.
And tbis bill, if it was supposed to
give eo much relief, aa it is alleged that
it would, ought to have met at least tbe
concurrence of the committee. It was
passed almost exclusively by republican
voles, 1 believe, tbe democrats and pop
ulists as a rule voting against it. And if
tho relief to be afforded by the bill is eo
important, the committee itself was rec
reant to its duty, because only one mem
ber voted for it. The leader of both
parties on that side of tbe houso op
posed it and votod against it upon its
I am charged with voting lor a meas
ure tending to injure and limit the circu
lation of country newspaper?.
That is absolutely unfounded. I take
some interest iu tbe country newspapers,
and it would certainly be the farthest
from my motives to vote to injure them.
I presume this alludes to the Loud bill.
I voted for it. It was a good bill. I be
lieved it was then ; I believe so now. I
believe the House made a mistike in not
So far as injury to tbe country news
paper is concerned it would have helped
them instead of injuriag them. These
advertising sheets tbat are now pub
lished under the name of newspapers
and sent out under tbe same rate of post
age as legitimate newspaper, are de
stroying the advertising business cf
