TO MAINTAIN GOLD AND SILVER

GREAT GOLD ARRIVALS FROM FDROPE
Repeal of Silver Purchase Clause
Sure to Pass.
In tho Senate.
Washington, Aug. 18. In tbo Ben
ate today Voorhees reported from com
mittee on finance a bill to dlscontluue
purchase of silver bullion, and declares
it to be the policy of the government to
continue use of both gold and silver
as standard money, and to
coin both gold and silver Into
money of equal intrinsloand exchange
able value, such equality to be secured
through international agreement or by
Buch safeguards of legislation as will in
sure maintalnance of parity in value of
coins of two metals. It is further de
clared that the efforts of the govern
ment should be steadily directed to the
establishment of such a safe system of
bimetallism as will maintain at all
times the equal power of every dollar
coined or Issued by the United States
in the markets and in payment of debts.
In the House.
Washington, Aug. 18. The silver
debate opened promptly this morning
in the house, with a speech by Sibley
(Democrat), In favor of bimetallism
and by Johnson, on the inconvertible
Vest, on behalf of the minority of
finance commltttce, presented a substi
tute for the repeal bill. The substitute
fixes the number of grains of silver In
coins at 464 MO pure silver per dollar,
and proportionately for half dollars,
quarters aud dimes. Voorhees gave
notice be would call up the bill and ad
dress the sonate Tuesday.
Vote on the repeal bill not be reached
for some time, as there is a dlposltion
on part of senators to debate the meas
ure for an Indefinite time. While anti
silver senators feel pretty certain tbe
bill can pass tbe bouse they appear by
no means sanguineof tbe senate. Thero
seems to be a feeling that tbe bill of
Vest, establishing free coinage at a ratio
of 20 to 1, may possibly be successful.
Tbe two bills would then go to confer
ence, and In that stage of proceedings
tbe senate could, without sacrificing
dignity, recede from Us position and
adopt bill of bouse. It is believed that
members favorable to free coinage, hav
ing by tbat time put themselves on rec
ord, would be willing to vote to recede
and n straight repeal would go to tbe
president for bis signature.
Certain to Pass.
CmcAao, Aug, 18. A Washington
special says: Silver men admit now
tbat tbe repeal vote will pass tbe house
by large majority because of peculiar va
riety of free coinage views, In matter
of ratio, but they hope tbat senate will
return bill to the bouse with certain
changes favorable to free coinage.

bright faced woman talking with a

tho subjoct of tho rovival meetings, and
the friend asked, "I supposo you have
boon to somo of them?" "No, I have
not," tho other roplied. "I haven't had
timo," and as sho spoko sho signaled the
conductor to lot her off the car. At her
words tho hard featured female sitting
noxt her quickly turned, and leaning for

The car had stopped, and as the lady
reached tbe door she hurriedly retorted,
