called on Secretary Olney to-day to
submit tho ilnal acceptance by tho
Ilrltlsh government of tho plan of a
llering sea commission to pass upon tho
claims of Cnuadlati scalers seized prior
to the. Paris award. It remains only
for the president to submit the plan
to Congress, and ns tho legislative
bra nun has refused to pay n lump sura
for the seizures, it is considered cer
tain that tho commission arrangement
will bo approved. It Is likely that
tho president, in submitting the plan
to Congress, will suggest onco moro
the desirability of a single payment as
the most expeditious means of settle
ment, for tho commission of nrbltra
tion, If agreed to, will bind tho United
States to tho payment of any sum
which tho commission may award.
The commission is to bo composed
of one American commissioner, one
llritish commissioner und an umpire
to be ehoson by tho two. The per
sonnel of the commission has not been
suggested, but there is a belief that
the president of Switzerland will be

tion to admitting Arizona. It was
generally conceded that the remain

the responsibility and the. expenses of
their government transferred to their
own people. Hut lately consider
able irritation has developed on
account of the monetary dispute, and
motives un-American, sectional and
seliish luivo caused several represen
tatives to announce their opposition to
tho admission of any more Western
States whose Senators, they think,
would disagree with the East on the
money question. The merits involved
nro temporarily obscured ou this ac
count. 1 have, however, too much
confidence in the ultimate justice and
love of fair play of the American peo
ple to think that an entirely extrane

Wakihnotox, Jan. 25. The silver
conference yesterday resulted In the
adoption of the strongest kind of a de
claration for the frco and unlimited
coinage of silver at tho ratio of 10 to
1, and tho call for a delegate national
convention to be held in St. Louis.
July 22, IsOO, the date of tho Populist
national convention. Tim call for tho,
convention expressly stipulates that
delegates to the convention shall bo
willing to subordinate party ullegiance
and fealty to the principlcsenunciated
in the declaration nnd to support thu
nominees of the convention.
A provisional national committee
was organized with headquarters at
Washington, and with authority lo
proceed at ouco to the organization of
States and territories for the success
of the movement.
There wns nn animated discussion,
early in tho day, of the financial situa
tion and tho policy to be pursued by
tho friends of silver. During tlie dis
cussion considerable feeling was
aroused by some of the remarks made
by Geucrnl Hatch of Missouri, in
which he stated in effect that if the
Populists of Kentucky had done their
whole duty the election of Mr. Muck
burn to a seat in the United States
senate would not be a matter of doubt.
General Field of Virginia and others
made heated replies. Mayor Turner
of Lansing, Mich., und Senator Stew
art of Nevada also addressed the con
vention. The committee on resolutions, of
which Senntor Jones of Nevada, is
chairman, submitted a report, tlie pre
amble of which Is u complete state
ment of tlie position of the silver ad
vocates. It declares the money ques
tion to be the paramount issue of the
day, and that the conllict is between
the gold standard, gold bonds nnd
bank currency, on tlie one side, and
the bimetallic staudnrd, no bonds and
government currency on the other.
Tlie ilnal declaration is as follows:
"That over and above all other ques
tions ot policy, wo are in favor of re
storing to tho people of the United
States tho time honored money of the,
constitution gold and silver not one.
but both tlie money of Washington
and Hamilton, nnd Jefferson nnd Mon
roe und Jackson and Lincoln, to the
end that American people mny receive
honest pay for an honest product, the
American debtor pay his just obliga
tions in nn honeststaudard, ami not in
n standard that is appreciated 100
per cent above tho great staples
of our country, and to tho end.
further, that silver standard countries
may be deprived of the unnatural ad
vantage they now enjoy in the differ
ence in exchange between gold nnd
silver an advantage which the tariff
legislation alone, cannot overcome.
We, therefore, confidently appeal to
the peoplo of tho United States, that
leaving in obeynnce for tho moment
till other questions, however impor
tunt, even momentous they may ap
pear, and sundering it need bo all
former party alllliations, they unite
in a supreme effort to free themselves
und their children from the domina
tion of the money power a power
moro destructive thun any which
has ever been fastened upon tlie
civilized men of any race or in
any age. And, upon the consummation
of their desires and efforts, wo invoke
the gracious favor of tho Divine Prov
idence." SILVER REPUBLICANS.
They formulate it Dein.ind for a l'lnnlc
In the National l'lut form,
Washington, Jan. i:. The Repub
lican silver Senators have signed a de
claration which is intended to be used
in the coming campaign as the de
mand which 'tho silver men will
make for a plank in the na
tional convention. In the preamble
it is recited that the present financial
system endangers the industrial
lrosperity of the United States, which
is threatened by China and Japan,
as a result of the decrease in
the value of t-"vcr and the difference
of exchange between silver und
gold using countries. It is therefore
resolved that tho signers favor the
frceand unlimited coinago of silver at
a ratio of 10 to 1 for the purposo of
obliterating this difference of ex
change, which is declared to operate
as a bounty on the export of products
from silver using countries to gold
using countries. It is also resolved
that they favor a tariff which shall
equalize the difference in tlie cost of
labor between this country and thu
countries of Europe und Asia. It is
the purposo of those who aro circu
lating tlie declaration to get all the

Many memorials concerning the Ar
menian question were presented to
tho Senate. Mr. Hill asked what had
become of the resolutions for ener
getle action by the president.
Mr. Cnllom of Illinois, who reported
the Turkish resolutions from the com
mittee on foreign Volutions, said ho
desired the speediest possible action
and later in the day would ask for a.
vote on the resolutions.
There was a brief flurry when Mr
Cullom sought to secure tho passage of
a joint resolution amending the act

Mr. Gallinger of Now Hampshire,
protested against the extravagance of
.Mr. Allen's language and there was an
extended debate as to tho scc'tions
which had received public buildings.
Mr. Cullom suggested that llloum

would yield to an appeal and the reso
lution was passed.
Mr. Caff erey of Louisiana called the

that committee, saying tho subject in
volved the right of subordinate olli
cials to nulify an appropriation made
The Turklsh-Arnunian resolution
was then called up by Mr.Cullom. The
Senator spoke of the serious situation
In Turkey. A massacre of innocence
unparalleled for ages, had been perpe
trated. Tho evidence of the bloody
encounter was given by all classes
and nationalities until it was
beyond the slightest doubt. A Turk
ish army had bayoneted, robbed,
murdered und flayed alive tho
people of Armenia. There was no.
war, but a pitiless, merciless tornado
of ruin, bloodshed and death. Tho
demon of fanaticism had been let
loose. There wns a responsibility
somewhere. It din not rest with the
slavish ruler of Turkey, tho sultan.
Hack of this were the disputes of tho
countries of the European alliance,
seeking their territorial advantages.
These countries were responsible. The
sultan was but a pnppet in tlieir
It was a matter of regret and em
barrassment, continued Mr. Cullom,
that the policy of the United States

tho purpose of this resolution
was to press, with tho great
est earnestness, for tho protection
of Armenia. It wus amazing to the
people oi the United States to see the
indifference of the Christian powers.
Thero was a double obligation upon
England nnil yet nothing had been
done to stay the hand of the Sultan,
except by fruitless diplomatic corre
spondence. Tlie powers, said Air. Cul

Tho United States had spoken in tho

the world had been greatly shocked at
the massacres in Turkey. Not only
was there murder and massacree, but
