On another roll call the first section
of tho bond bill .passed by a vote of

llio second section of the bond bill
passed without a division.
Mr. Rrosius, Republican, of Penn
sylvania opened in favor of the bill.
This was the only country on tho
globe, ho said, where gold redemption
had neither qualification nor limita
tion, and where the treasury was
without tho power to resist the in
cursions of foreign gold grabbers or
domestic speculators. Tho revenue
deficit was the chief sinner in the
coined' of errors which had produced
tho present troubles. It was not
suitable to the dignity of the govern
ment to employ sleuth hounds of for
eign syndicates to hunt down gold.
The people of this country should
have the first opportunity to "help tho
trensury out of the tough financial sea.
Ho declared that thero was no politics
iu the bill.
Mr. Parker, Republican, of New
Jersey favored tho bill as a good busi
Mr. Cannon, Republican, of Illinois,
in support of the measure, declared
that it was a bill to maintain 'specie
puyments, which had been resumed
under thu wiso direction of tho Repub
lican party in 1870. For the 13 years
following the resumption the revenues
hud always exceeded the expenditures.
Twelve hundred million dollars of thu
interest paying debt had been dis
charged. Since Mr. Cleveland's elec
tion in 1803 deficiency, distress, idle
ness and panic had followed. Instead
of paying 1(10 millions a year on the
public debt tho Democrats had bor

"Wo will not abridge the power of

continued. "Wo will give him more
power. He cannot have too much
power if it is used wisely. You, on

because you want to impair tho
credit of the country and force us to a
silver basis: tlioso who hiipport tho ad
ministration, because it wants gold
bonds. We, iu our judgment and pa
triotism stand ready to pass this bill.
If it is rejt'c.ed bv tho Semite, or Pres

mite toward tho protection of tiie
public credit and have given a proph

Mr. Tiiwnoy, Republican of Minne
sota, a member of tin: ways and means
committee, in support of the bill,
called attention to tho President's ur
gent appeal to Congress to do some
thing boforo adjourning. He knew,
and everybody know, that gold bonds
would not be authorized bv Congress,
and because Congress will not give
him authority, he a'nd his Secretary of
tho Treasury had already opened' ne
gotiations with the same old malodor
ous syndlcato for another Issue of 4
per cent bonds. The people of the
country weio to be given no opportu
nity to subscribe. He read several
letters from constituents offering to
subscribe for gold bonds.
Mr. Marsh, Republican, of Illinois,
arose to give his reasons for refusing
his support to the bill, but betoro ho
had finished his preliminary remarks
tho gavel of tho speaker full and the
House remained unenlightened.
Mr. Hurton, Republican, of Missouri,
and Mi. Connolly, Republican, of Ill
inois, who have been counted on as
opponents of tho bill, gave their sup
port to It in brief speeches.
Tho debatu was closed for tho re
spective sides by Messrs. Crisp and
DuUcll, tho former insisting, that the
bill was a political measure really in
tended to embarrass the trcastirv,

business prouosition to save Interest.

London, Dec. j0. Although the
general opinion is expressed in tho
cable dispatches from the United
States that the tariff revision bill is
not likely to pass the Senate, the
measure has caused quito a ilutter in
commercial circles. An Irish indus
trial organ points out that the pro
posed increase in tho duty on woolens
will inevritably check a growing
trade, and that Irish industries will
suffer in consequence. Owing to the
great iutcrost excited in Irish goods
by the exhibits Hindu at the world's

was held between Speaker Reed und

result was an agreement for a voto on

instead Of C o clock to-day.
A further arrangement
thnt the ways nnd moans
before reporting the bill, shall insert
n clause showing that it is not the
purpose to retire tho greenbacks. It
was also arranged that there shall bo
sepuratc votes one on the proposition
for a s;o,000,000 bond Issue and an
other on the unlimited issue. The
conference was satisfactory to all ele
ments and the concessions made over
came the protests against haste, which
led last night to the appointment of a
committee of Republican members to
wait on Speaker Reed.
The ways and means committee
adopted the amendment to the bond
bill suggested by Mr. Hopkins of
Illinois to prevent the accumulation in
the .treasury of the greenbacks and
their practical retirement without can
cellation. The amendment provides
that nothing in the act shall be con
strued to repeal or modify tho act of
1878 for the reissue of the greenbacks
Another amendment was adopted
making the bonds issued under the
act payable within fifteen years. The
second amendment was suggested by
Mr. Lacey of Iowa and met the ap
proval of the Republican members.
In the original draft of the bill it was
provided that the bonds should bo re

fjfinite termination of them. Tho
i?ndments were adopted by a strict

amendment to repeal the act of 1878

was adopted and Mr. Helknup was
Mr. Henderson of Iowa, from the
committee on rules, presented the rule
for the consideration of the bond bill.
Mr. Crisp opposed the adoption of
tho rule. Yesterday, said he. a gen
eral tariff bill, the exact effect of
which on particular industries, and on
the revenues .no one knew, had been
rushed through the House. To-day it
had been proposed to rush throug'h a
bond bill in the same summary man
ner, but tho muriuuringsof discontent
on tho Republican side had forced the
uutocrat of tho House ami the so
called leaders to yield a little more
time. He admonished the other side
that it was only by resistance that
they could obtain their rights.
Mr. Iluiloy, Democrat, of Texas,
agreed in a general way to the propo
sition that there could not be a great
abuse of tho privilege of debute on
public questions ami thut the prime
factor was a vote; but, he said, while
useless debate should be restricted,
full and iair debate wtis essential.
Yesterday, with four hours' debate, a
bill which would burden the people
with S10.000.000 of additloual tnxes,
wns passed. To-day the performance
was to be repeated, but this time pos
terity was to bo saddled with an in
terest bearing debt of no one knew
how many millions. Tho country, he
said, would no more tolerato precipi
tate haste than it would undue delay.
Mr. McMillan, Democrat, of Tennes
see, asked why the Republican leaders
proposed to cut their ussociates off
without opportunity to offer amend
ments. Were those in authority afraid
of their associates? Would they not
be trusted to do anything but voto?
When tho twenty minutes allowed
the Democratic side had been con
fumed, Mr. Henderson, who was in
charge of the rule, without making
my reply to tho criticisms from the
other side, demnuded a vote on the
idoptlon of the rule, which was taken

ANOTHER BOND ISSUE.
Arrangements I'erfected for T.aunrblnc
Washington, Dec. 2S. Tho Presi
dent and Secretary Carlisle have de
termined upon nn immediate issue of
bonds to be In the form of a popular
loan. It will make no difference
whether Rmslnn gold is available or
not, as It will not be called for or ac
cepted. Congress will not bo depend
ed upon, for President Cleveland Is
satisfied that no bond legislation will
get through that body in timo to re
lieve the present urgent situation.
The issue will be announced iu a
very few days. Tho amount will he
3100,000,000 for a period of thlrtyyears
at 4 per cent, but the salu will be lled
at such a premium as will make the In
terest 3 rer cent Hat. The denomina
tions will be small and the bonds will
be put upon the market in the United
States. No arrangement has been
made with the llclmont-Morgan syndi
cate, representing tho Rothschilds,
other than thut they may, after nil of
the bids of general and private sources
in this country have been received,
take the residue or surplus at tho same
rate of interest. This tho syndicate
has agreed to do.
Secretary Carlisle Sajs the Treasury' Con
dition Is Serious.
Washington, Dec. 2e Chairman
Dingley of the ways and means com
mittee has received n private letter
from Secretary Carlisle which fur
lishes some information concerning
the condition of tho treasury. Miv
Dingley will not mnko tho letter pub
Mc, but says the Secretary offers to
furnish tho Houso with nil data that
nay be needed. The condition of thu
reasury is represented as very seri
ous, and Mr. Carlisle urges legislation
!or u gold bond.
Mr. Dingley has Informed the Sec
etarv that a gold bond is out of thu
question nnd could not bo considered.
Secretary Carlisle did not say to Mr.
Dingley that a 3 per cent bond cannot
be lloated and did not discuss this
feature of the case. This latter denial
was made because reports to this
effect concerning the Secretary's letter
were in circulation.
President Cleveland and his advisers,
it is learned, are strongly opposed to
tho notise bond bill, and this feeling
caused Secretary Carlisle to write to
Chairman Dingley. Aside from tho
very important objection that tho
bonds are to be redeemed in coin, in
stead of gold, as recommended by the
President, it is understood that tho
requirement that the bonds bo sold b
subscription meets with disapproval.
