RUPERTS OF DEBATE
Bland and Wilson Tailed to Packed
EPED'8 SPEECH WAS OflEEEED
WIIkoii Makin a Splendid Fnort and
Arouse 1 1 In Audience to n High l'llch
WasMneton. Aua. 20. The eallerle
of the house were filled this morning
by the people being attracted by the
fuct that this was the last day of the
tfivat silver debate and that it would
be slimallzed hv a battle between or
atoricul glunts. The Bpeaher announced
that the debate In favor of the bill
would be closed, by Its author, Repre
sentative Wilson of West Virginia.
and that It would be opposed by Bland
of Missouri. The debate, was opened by
Thos. B. Reed of Maine. After sketc"
ing briefly the financial condition of
the country, and deckuincr that he had
no desire to deal with the situation
from a political standpoint, he said
"The undlscovenible uncertainty of the
future both of the currency questions
and the ouestion of protection ana
vevoiuie tariff are the principal causes
of the present condition of affairs
He considered the Sherman act and the
accumulation of silver as the earliest
indication of the approaching disaster,
rather than the chief cause. He was
enly sorry that the question could not
be settled within the bounds of the
'democratic party itself.. The pathway
of duty was unconditional repeal. If
that did not give relief, we must try
something else and the sooner the bet
ter. The republicans found themselves
In a peculiar position. The newly cho
sen democratlo president found himself
powerless in his first great recommend
ation to his own party, and forced to
appeal to the patriotism of another
party, whose patriotism had never
been appealed to In vain."
Cochran of New York, was the next
speaker. He said that the democratic
platform did not declare for the free
coinage of silver. The proposed debase
ment of coin would reduce the debits
45 per cent. The silver men assumed
that the loss would fall on the banks
but the fact was that the banks and
corporations were debtors of the coun
try and the loss would fall on thework
Ingmcn. He closed with an eloquent
appeal for equity and Justice as a bus
Is of a governmental policy, awaking! a
wairlwind of applause,, and cries of
"vote." The speaker was overwhelmed
with congratulations. The excitement
on the floor was so great that the
speaker had to call on the officers of
the house to restore order. Bland then
began the closing, argument on behalf
of the sliver men.
Wilson, of West Virginia, the author
of the bill, closed the debate In the
house with a speech in support of the
measure. By universal consent,, he
said, the so-called Sherman act failed
to justify the expectations of those
who framed It. It had been expected
to raise the price of Bilver bullion
throughout the world. That expecta
tion had proved false. It had been ex
necrted that an expansion of currency
and renewed prosperity would follow
the enactment of the law. That ex
pectation had been equally falsified.
Instead of. producing an expansion of
currency, it- had produced a contrac
tion of it. No one could doubt that
the Sherman law was largely responsi
ble for the panic that suddenly over
spread the country. It had been ar
gued from the first speech to the last
made against the impending bill that
it would, while stopping the purchase
of sliver, throw the country upon a
gold basis. . The bill proposed here
would not demonetize a single silver
dollar today circulating in any part of
the country. The bill had come not
to destroy, but to save. It carried
with it not only a promise of the main
tenance of parity between gold and
silver, but carried the , parity itself.
(Applause.) McMillan Inquired whetn-
this bill up with a proposition for free
er the gerUleman proposed to follow
f-oinaee. Wilson rejoined that he was
satisfied that It was the earnest desire
of the democratlo administration not
only to support the existing silver cir
culation in this country, but to increase
the issue of silver currency to the ut
most extent. It was safe to do bo
and to keep silver on a parity with
At 11:05 the house adjourned until
Monday, August 5:8, at noii when the
first vote will be taken.
A FORECAST OF THE SITUATION.
-Washington, Aug. 2C The prevail
ing Impression as to the probable ac
tion of the two houses on the silver
question finds expression as follows:
"The AVllaon repeal bill will be passed
by the huse and pigeonholed by the
senate. After a long debate, the sen
ate will ni the VoorhxM Mil which
will go to the house. If there Is a
prospect of a contest, the cloture will
be speedily applied and the bill be
passed, and will then be ready' for the

TROUBLE WITH A BANK.
.Tacoma, Wash,, Aug. 20. An intri
cate complication has arisen in refer
ence to the Washington National Bank
of this oily, which has been In involun
tary liquidation for some time under
permission of Comptroller of Currency
Eckles. Bank Examiner Clary tried to
take possession of the books yesterday,
but was refused by the bank officers
who claim that the bank has funds on
hand to pay all claims, and that the
action of the bank examiner was an
outrage. The bonk takes the position
that When it went into liquidation it
ceased to be under the comptroller of
the currency and la answerable only
to the courts. Judge Hanford will be
asked for a restraining order to pre
vent Clary from taking charge.

A BIG SMUGGLER CAUGHT.
San" Francisco, August 26. F. Freer
gave himself up this morning to United
States Marshal Long after a consulta
tion with United States District Attor
ney Garter. Freer Is the owner of the
trunk which was seized on the steamer
Walla Walla which arrived from Vic
toria on Sunday. In the trunk, under
false bottom, were found sixty tins
of opium. As the trunk was not forth
coming, Mrs. Freer went to the cus
tom house yesterday to learn the rea
son why. She waa referred to the
United States district attorney's office,
where she learned that the trunk was
held awaiting the owner of the smug
gled opium. Freer made a full con
fession to Attorney Garter, and to a
reporter he afterwards told his story,
"The opium is mine," he said, "and I
bought it from a Chinaman In Victoria,
I . think I have been done up by the
opium smugglers who operate between
Victoria and the Sound. I knew too
much for them, and they wanted to
get me out of the way. As soon as I
made up my mind to come to San
Francisco gome of the smuggling gang
knowing that I had saved some money,
told me that It was no' trick at all to.
smuggle opium Into San Francisco. I
followed their advice, and I think that
they sent word ahead of me that 1 .
