Then came the report of the commit-lea-
oa permanent organization. Mr.
Failou. of Texas spoke for the msjor
Hy,vrecommcnding for presiding officer
er. Anthony, of Kansas. His name
i was received with cheers. The mlnor-
itv stated that the choice of the com-i
mlttre for presiding officer was the
point oa which tbev could not agrw.

I a free coinage man. Gov. Anthony was
declarcd, by hLs own confcs.ilon, to bo
opposed to free coinage, ihc reptrt
recommended A. I. rrry, of I talu for
presiding officer. HLs name was
cheered. This wm by Idaho, New
Mexico, Wyoming. Colorado, L'tah and
Nevada, six of the
fourteen states oa
Texas moved to accept th majority
report, but New Mexico wanted to act
on the minority report and moved its
adoption, while Nebraska wanted t

The Tpim tnotiim to adont tho ma-
jority n'port was then taken up and
carried by a viva voce vote.
A rccon.sileration was demanded by
Colorado and Judge Kerr got the floor
and made a plea for silver. He did not
believe, apparently, in much of any
thing the majority report recom
mended. After more heated debate the motion
to reconsider wan carried aud Judgo
Fcrrj' elected chairman.
Dr.xvKK, Col., May 21 At yesterday
morning's session of the Tranfmlvls
hippi congress resolutions were offered
indorsing the Nicaragua and Hennepin
canals and the Torrey bankruptcy bill;
favoring the free coinage of silver, and
favoring the dcfen.vs for the deep water
harbor aud navigable rivers.
After an address advocating freo sil
ver an tho money of the people, and
river and harbor improvement by ex
Congrevsmnn Ilclford, of Colorado, the
congress too a recess.
After recess the question of a placo
for the next meeting was again Uiken
up. On the firet ballot the vote stood:

The silver question was then dls
emiM.il at great length by Judgo
Symmc-s, of Denver, and Chairman
Kerry, of l'tah, for. and cx-Gov. An

limited coinage of hilver.
Mr. Symmos spoke upon silver coin

Britain had been running to their full
capacity to meet tho demand of tho
world If these tnonomolalLsts were
earnest In their arguments why did
they sot export their silver to India,
where it could bo coined at 6 per cent,
advance on America. Free coinage,
the Rpcakcr declared, would break up
three-fourths of the English commerce
on the seas. He closed by urging reso
lutions ia favor of free coinage.
Ex-Gov. Georgu T. Anthony, of
Knnsa.sa!d that gold -n.l .!
always been regarded as measures of
value, and, as congress was empowered
to establish a uniform system of
weights and measures, it had the right
to declare the value of silver. The sil
ver industry, he said, had been prose
cuted by men who built up palaces,
which ciuld lc seen on every side in
Denver, and allowed their prollts
to overflow and te invested In
magnificent busi ess blocks nnd
colossal hotels. Yet they pleaded
poverty and upbraided tho east
for unjust legislation. The speaker
referred to the development of Chicago

not be equaled by any city in the cast
Where was the dis-riminatioti. ho
asked, in face of such unparalleled im
provements. His principal point was
that the value of silver and gold was
regulated by the law of supply and de
mand the same as that of the commoner
metals; that the cry that silver was de
preciated by limited coinage was a de
lusion. E I'. Ferry, of t'tnh, relinquished
the chair in favor of Gov. Prince, of
New Mexico, in order to reply to Mr.
Anthony. He declared himself a man
of liveliness who came not bringing to
the rostrum the eloquence and wit of
his predecessor. He said that Ggurcs
did not lie, but men who falsely ap
plied them were frequently convicted
of untruthfulness. The law established
by Hamilton in IVX1 and approved by
George Washington, prorided for the
free coinage of silver in which it was
expressly stipulated that holders of gold
and silver had the right to come for
ward with their bullion and demand its
coinage. The law had never been re
pealed They did not ask for friendly
legislation, but the unfriendly legisla
tion should cease.
At the evening session the committoe
on resolutions made two reports on the
The majority report favors the free
coinage of silver, but limits it to the
American production, while the minor
ity report favors free and unlimited
coinage. The report went over.
