The finance committee silver substi
ouve lur uir mmic uni men uuiii** ujj
and was passed by a vote of 43 to 35.
The Senate session opened at 11
o’clock with a speech hy the venerable
Senator trout Vermont, Mr. Morrill,
who said the House had promptly re
sponded to the President'* message
and hud supplemented it whh an
emergency tariff revenue bill. The free
silver substitute for the bond bill, he
said, may not be the tirst time when
bread hud been asked for that, a stone
lias been presented, tint it in the tirst
time that a commit tee of the Sen
ate seems to have perpetrated a prac
tical joke almost good enough for
tlie clown of liurnum's menagerie.
The Senator thougut that a deficient
national income should not lie less
swiftly remedied than excess, saying:
“The present administration, how
ever, exhibits a bashful ditlidence
uIs,ni acknowledging any deficiency
of revenue derived from a tariff lie
reaved of its parents in early infancy,
but with their hands behind them they
may <jn etly take whaMver money ton
grass may place in their hands for the
treasury, where the outflow of gold
has been so swiff as to make even
the heads of the kcep*radia*y."
Iteferriug to the assertion tha.
Prance uu nlains silver at par with
gold, he said: “llrcaiise there Is no
blustering silver party and no silver

Mr. Morrill then dwelt upon the In
jury that would be done the Smith If
the world had the opportunity to buy
its cotton crop with cheap sliver. He
enlarged on the advantages of protec
tion and controverted the argument
that tlierii was a gold standard party
in America. The RcnubHcan party
intended to retain both metals in cir

Morrill, “of Republican governors

Thureday, as a recess was taken last
night. There was a meager attend
ance. Mr. Allen of Nebraska. Voptb
| list, called attention to the absence of
' a quorum. Tills necessitated a roll
call, which brought senators from
committee and cloak rooms and dis
closed forty-six senators present, one
more than a quorum. Mr. Vilas then
addressed the senate on the silver
substitute for the bouse bond bill.
"It will doubtless never be neees*
| sary to discuss this bill as It came
from the House,” said Mr. Vilas, "bill
it may be said that. It deserved Its futc
nti angled by sliver It was but the
fraudulent pretext of response to the

tificate*— which ought to stand In the
permanent statute*—the House bill
contained not h lug commendable,every
thing else was but mercenary legisla
tion not demanded by our financial
conditions. And so again, as a year
ago, partisanship or Imbecility, or
both, has stricken < ongress with
paralysis, and the rescue of business
prosperity from it* recurring perl) ha*
been thrown upon the executive. It
is almost as fortuitous as fortunate
that an old statute has remained un
touched during our financial madness,
which can again serve the turn.
“II, lie continued, trustee
agent in private affair* should so deny
duty and abuse trust a*< ongres* did a
year ago anti nov/ repeats, no judg
ment in their condemnation would be
too severe. Over fdi.OOO,000 were then
thrown away in the reckless rage of
partisanship, and the injury that
must now be sustained by the people
for the same reason is probably not
less, although the exact measure of it
is not quite so clear. Then Republican
management was able to show pre
tense that but for the Populists and
the free sllverites there might have
been relief. Hut the pretense was not
sincere, and this bill ha* now un
masked the fact by denylug. under Re
publican dictations, the only remedy
available to the increased mischief,”
Mr. Vilas declared that the bill, a*
it came from toe House, was a sham
and a fraud. Then he proceeded to
show that the Henute substitute and
the amendment* that iiad been pro
posed made It worse than the original
mean ure.
“The best hope is,” said be, “that
both will shrivel end die in the desert
air of the henate.” He had hitherto
concluded that, it was the wisest pol
icy to remain silent and allow the sil
ver advocates to <lo the talking, as
they were in the habit of doing at the
ratio of about Hi to 1, but be had
heard it asked why the opponent* of
free coinage did not justify their faith
in debate.
He then discussed the free coinage
provision of the pending hill, declar
ing that the financial distress an/1
public misery for the past three year*
were the direct products of the efforts
to force silver upon the country,
“And,” he said, “our course of relief
is a return to sound principles.”
He believed every step of the fatal
progress in error had been opposed to
the cardinal doctrines on which the
Iiemocratic party is based, and by
which it must abide or sink in re
creancy while the spirit flics from our
institutions of liberty.
He divided the silver advocates into
three classes: First, those who were
interested in silver milling; second,
heavy debtors, and third, those who
believ ■ in the principle of bimetallism.
The first class were few in number,
but wonderfully potential. The sec
ond might “deceive sympathy if they
did not show it.” The third class Is
regarded as honestly mistaken, and to
them he addressed Ids urguiucut.
•The veriest despot of story, the
'grand khan' of Tartary, the great
mogul, never had more submissive
subjects than the silver king of the
Rockies; nor was ever tyrant more
pitiless or exuctiug No indeiieiideucu
of thought or speech Ih tolerated
there. N« party, no creed, no bmd

Mr. Vilas' s|ieech was a vivid word
picture of "Ihuuoeraey, menaced, on
one liand by federalism rejuvenated in
the Itepuhiican party, and on the
other by tliat portcutinus cloud of a
