THE CURRENCY DEBATE.
Waehllngton, Dec 19. The delUalle on
the currency bill continued unlnterrupt'
adly In the house today. Messrs. John.
3on, of Indiana, and Ellis, of Kentucky,
apposed lit, and Warner, of New York,
supported It. The speech of Ellia was
of rather a sensaidomi.1 character, and
the applause It reoelwsd from the free
silver Democrats, lndiicuited pUiinly the
unalterable opposition of tfiie silver men
to tk.e Carlisle bill.
lEllis, of Kenttui-hy, was 6he firdt Dem
ociteltio memlbr of the baulking and
currency committee to aittUick the Oar-
lisle bill. At Ithe outset he proclaimed
that h9 waa convinced ta passage
would remedy none of the defects of
the preaent flrianciUiI system.
For tlilnty years the Dumxrratlc par
ty had condemned Ithe niaitionul bank
Byatem, yet It waa proposing not only
to p?rpeituaito that system, but to per-
potpajte It In a more obJltilnable form
than that In which It ait present exist.
ed. Ellis In conclusion charged the
DeimoorWtlo party 1n "WcvngTeiB with be
ing false to Its .Ohldago plwJorm
plcdgres, in not paesinsr the tanllT bill tur
revenue only ; In not repealing outrlghlt
the 10 per, cent tax on State banks, and
In not restoring silver to Its position
as a money iriieltai oh the suone terms
a 1th gwld. "The Democratic promises,"
said he, "wLll not be i redeemed until
tlie people elect a Defniocrtutlc president.
When that day oomea, as I believe tt
will, the chief exeou'Uve will not be
