BOND BILL SUBSTITUTE
Long Contest in the Senate
Brought to a Close.
SEVEN MAJORITY FOR FREE COINAGE
A Vote Was Reached After Three
Honrs of Caustic Debate and Sharp
Washington, Feb. 1. The long con
test over the silver bond bill is at an end
in the senate, that body having passed
the free-silver coinage substitute for the
bouse bond bill by the decisive vote of
42 to 25 a majority of seven for free sil
ver. This result was reached at 3
o'clock today, afterthree honrs ot caus
tic debate and sharp parliamentary
The public interest in the culmination
of the protracted struggle was shown by
crowded galleried, and a full attendance
on the floor, 77 senators being present,
and the others paired. Baron von Theil

cupied a front seat in the diplomatic
gallery, showing keen interests in the
final vote. Members of t henhouse crowd

and standing room in the rear and side
The result was such a foregone conclu
sion that little excitement or surprise
was occasioned by tbe announcement of
the passage of the substitute.
The early hours of the session, begin
ing at 11 o'clock, were given to the clos
ing speeches, including that of Morrill,
the octogenarian of congress, who is still
vigorous in speech and thought. The
other speeches were under the five-min-nte
rule, being breef and snappy. Lind
say took occasion to say that in his judg
ment the president had fulfilled -the fall
measure of his duty in financial affairs
and should do no more. If calamity
came as a result of the congressional in
action, the preEident should leave the
responsibility where it belonged, on the
shoulders of congress.
Another interesting incident occurred
when Gorman was urgmg that the legis
lation was fruitless, as it could not re
ceive executive approval. Morgan called
attention to the fact that the duty of
congress was to act without executive in
fluence or direction, to which Gorman,
with much earnestness replied.

only regret that there has not been a
closer adherence to it in the past. Tbe

men on alftest motions, changed his
vote at the last and recorded himself as
against the passage of the free-silyer bill.
After several hours' contest in execu
tive session today, the senate confirmed
the nominations of General J. J. Coppin
ger, colonel in the army, to be brigadier
general, by the decisive vote of 44 to 17.
The nomination was sent to the senate
very soon after the conveying of congress,
but had scarcely been made public when
protests against confirmation began to
pour in from the A. P. A. societies in all
parts of the country. After a delay of
six weeks, the senate committee on mili
tary affairs made a unanimously favor
able report to the senate. The opposi
tion was led today by Burrows, Gear,
Perkins, Teller, Pettigrew, Squire and
Wilson, all of whom made speeches dur
the course of the day's session. Hawley,
Bate and Palmer, all members of the
committee, championed the general's
canse, detailing the results of the in

vestigation of the committee, which they
said were entirely favorable to General
The opponents of confirmation based
their course of action almost entirely
upon the fact that General Coppinger
had been promoted over the heads of 13
colonels who were his seniors in rank,
which was dwelt upon as an unjust pro
ceeding. When they were met with the
statement that Coppinger was selected
because of his superior military record,
they asserted that there were others of
equally meritorious records. They also
made tbe point that, in case of war, the
probabilities were altogether favorable
to younger men coming to the front.
The vote favorable to confirmation in
cludes all the members of the committee
on military affairs, who were supported
by the more conservative senators, who
generally follow committee recommenda
tions. It was also noticed that all ex
Confederates in the senate voted for con
firmation, as did all except one or two
of the Union soldiers.
A ROOSTER IN EVIDENCE.
Brought Into Court and . Placed on the
In a stealing- case which, was tried
in tbe county court at Sylvania, Ga.,
a very extraordinary witness was in
troduced the first of his kind that
has ever appeared in our courthouse,
says the Savannah News. This was a
dominick rooster. Two negro boys
were prosecuted for stealing chickens
from another negro. The prosecutor
proved that his chickens were missing,
and he claimed to have identified them
in the yard of the accued. It then
developed on the latter to prove their
ownership. One of our brightest youngf
lawyers was conducting1 the defense,
and he very ingeniously introduced in
evidence the above mentioned domi
nick rooster, which belonged to the
defendants, in order to show the sim
ilarity in appearance between his roost
ersbip and the suspected chickens.
This rooster was lord of the barnyard
on the place where the two boys lived,
and the disputed chickens were so very
much like him in color and other ways
that no one doubted they were his lineal
descendants. The -rooster, when put
on the stand, began at once to crow
lustily, as if desiring- to proclaim the
innocence of the accused, and furnished
much amusement to the court. After
hearing' all the evidence in the case
and inspecting1 the rooster the judge
discharged the prisoners and told the
prosecutor that, while it was perhaps
true he had lost his chickens, yet he
was convinced they had become the
prey of owls or possums.
THE GOOD SAMARITAN IN CHINA
Ho Would Hare Been Likely to Get Him
self Into Trouble.
One dark evening I was returning
. nome irom a call on one of our Eng
lish neighbors in Taivuenfn. writpo
Prof. C. M. Cady in Century. When not
iar irom our compound the road
crossed an open space of several acres
in extent. As I was finding my way
along by the dim light of a Chinese
lantern, I nearly stumbled over the
body of a man who had fallen by the
way. My first impulse was to take
hold of the person and ascertain if
help was needed; but for some reason
I did not, but hurried home to get aid.
Mr. X was still with us, and on hearing
my statement said:
"Yes, I know; the man is dead, and
it is fortunate that you did not attempt
to touch the body. Should we now
try to remove it, or even go to it, we
should no doubt be seen, and at once
suspicion would attach itself to us, and
none could tell the consequences. We
might cause a riot before morning."
It should be said that this suspicion
would not have been because we were
foreigners, for a native under sim
ilar circumstances would likewise have
run the risk of being charged with
the murder. The Good Samaritan
would have fared hardly in China
or most likely would have been sus
pected of doing the kind deed for some
ultimate gain while the priest and the
Levite would have been accounted not
hard-hearted, but prudent.
