THE KENEVALS LANDS. A Washington spe
ciol says : "After the expiration of the morn
ing hour to-day Mr. Laird called up the bil
for the relief of the settlers of the Keneval
lands , opening the debate in a vigorous fash
ion , showing the claims which three hundred
men and their families had on the govern
ment because of its departmental promises ,
eot aside finally by the supreme court. Ho
said that tbe judgment of the ouster was
banging over the heads of these poor men
like the sword of Damocles ; that they were' '
confronted with the alternative of 'pay or go. '
As the speaker stood leaning upon hiscrutch-
es , appealing to the house , he was greeted
with applause at intervals and the silence
evinced that his crisp sentences were taking
effect. Present contide-atlon of the bill was
defeated , however , by a majority of 15. Mr.
Laird WHS suffering considerably and was at
tended to tbe house by a physician and a
nurse , and ransomu risk of permanent in jury ,
but , as he remanded to Mr. Holman when
asked how ho daie venture out , ' 1 thought if
I came in this plight you fellows would think
I waa not here in behalf of a fraudulent bill. '
Mr. Laird will endeavorto move the bill again
in a few days , and hopes for success. "
CONGRESSMAN DUNCAN. In the Congressional
Globe of a recent date , wherein the senate
considered resolutions relative to the death
of Representative Duncan , of Pennsylvania ,
we find the following address of Senator Man
derson of Nebraska :
Mr. MANDEHSON. Mr. President , not
eventful the life that has closed. Spent amid
stirring scenes and in troublous times it
stands out against them in contrasts to bo re
marked. Born in the central state , the Key
stone of the arch of commonwealths , where
Pennsylvania holds the scales ,
And neither South nor Xonh prevails
where politics seems to be of every day he
was not a politician. Living on that , which
one of tbe most stupendous events in modern
history has made holy ground , where the
strongest of human passions held dullest
sway , and "dire was the noise of conflict , " at
far-famed Gettysburg , where "it seemed as
though men fought upon the earth and fiends
In upper air" he was a quiet looker on and
not a soldier.
But he "acted well his part. " It comes not
to every man that be shall fill a page , or re
quire even a line , in the world's history. Yet
the uneventful lives seem the happiest ones ,
and the "mute , inglorious MJltons" of earth
are usually the ones to envy , if content with
life is its chiefest blessing. Of a genial na
ture , he mode many friends , "well-springs in
the wilderness , " who loved him in life and
mourn his too early death. Trained in the
schools , be loved books , "those monuments
of vanished minds , " 'delightful when pros
perity happy smiles ; inseparable comforters
"when adversity threatens. "
Well balanced and intellectual , his pursuits
were those of the scholar and his enjoyments
those of the student. Ho could well exclaim :
My mind to be a kingdom Is
Such perfect treasure there I find.
Called to the bar , he became one of its
leaders In his locality. Devoted to that "ex
acting mistress , tbe law , " she gave him full
return in a large clientage , to whose interests
he was devoted.
Of upright character , he was universally
esteemed , and itcamo naturally , from the
recognition of all these commendable quali
ties , that his neighbors chosehim to represent
his congressional district in the Forty-eighth
congress. Suffering during his term Irom
that fell disease of which be died in Novem
ber last , be was not able to place an imprint
upon any of the legislation of the last EC sion :
but fresh and well deserved appreciation of
his worth came to him when , while upon the
bed of death , he was re-elected to the bouse
of representatives.
To me William A. Duncan waa personally
unknown , but when , at the request of a col
league ho esteemed him higuly , I looked
over the detail of his life that 1. a native of
the grand old commonwealth that he honored
as it honored him , might pay fitting tribute
to his memory , I was charmed with its sym
metry and could not but admire the leatures
I have so feebly portrayed. A life so beauti
ful , a career so even gave promise of a usetul
It is most apt to depict him growing with
the years of experience mto the trusted legislator
later , the wise counselor , respected of ail
men , of service to the state , until with
ripened age came fuller honors , and at last
with the full allotment of years would come
the end to the rounded life. But it was not so
to be. "God's finger touched him and he
slept. "

a Letter to Coinage Advocates In Conyress.
President-elect Cleveland , in his reply ad
dressed to the silver coinage advocates , says :
The letter which I have had the honor to re
ceive from you invites and , Indeed , obliges mete
to sive ; exf ressioa to some grave public ex
pressions , although iu advance of the moment
when they would become objects of my ofllcial
care and partial responsibility. Your solici
tude that my judgment shall have been care
fully and deliberately formed , is entirely just ,
and I accept the suggestion In the same friendj
ly spirit In which It has been made. It is also
fully justified by the nature of tbe financial
crisis , which , under the operation oE the act o'
congress of February 2 { ? , 1874 , is now close at
hand. By compliance with the requirements
of that law , all the vaults of the federal treas
ury have been and arc heaped full of sliver
coins , which are uow worth less than 85 per
cent of the dollar prescribed as "tbe uuit of
value" in section 14 of the a t of February 12 ,
1873 , and which , with the silver certificates
representing such coin , are receivable for all
public dues. Being thus receivable ,
while also constantly increasing in quan
tity at the rate of § 93,000,000 a
year , It has followed , of necessity , tbat the
How of gold into ib.2 treasury has "been stead

and the sum of gold in the federal treasury ,
now available for the paymect oE the gold ob
ligations of the United States and for the re
demption of tbe notes called greenbacks , if
not already encroached upcm is perilously near
such encroachment. are facts which ,
as they do not admit o difference of opinionj
call for no argument. They have been for
warded to us in the official report oE every sec
retary of the treasury from 1S7S until now.
They are plainly affirmed in the last Decem
ber report of the pressut secretary of the
treasury to the speaker of the present house
of representatives. They appear in the official
report to this congress and In the records of
the New York clearing house. These being
the facts of our present condition , our danger
and our duty to avert that danger would seem
to be plain. I hope you concur wiih me and
the great majority of our fellow citizens in
deeming it most desirable at the present junc
ture to maintain and continue in use the mass
oE our gold coin as well as the mass of silver
already coined. This is possible by the
present suspension of ( he purchase and coln-
Bge of silver. I am aware that by no other
method it is possible. It is of momentous
importance to prevent the two metals from
parting company , to prevent the increasing
displacement oE gold by the increasing coin
age oE silver , to prevent the disuse of gold in
the custom houses of the United States , in '
tbe daily business of the people , and to pre- I
rent the ultimate expulsion of gold by silver.
Sncb a financial crash as these events would
: crtainly precipitate , were it now to follow up-
sn so long a period of commercial depression ,
tvould involve the people of every city and I 1
every state in the union in prolonged and dis- j J
istrous trouble. The revival of business enterprise - i
prise and prosperity so ardently desired c
md so apparently near , would be hopelessly
postponed. Gold would be withdrawn to its t
aoardig places and an unprecedented contract
.ion o the actual volume of our currency
vculd speedily take place. Saddest of all , in
: very workshop , mill , factory , store , and on
; very railroad and farm , the wages of labor
ilready depressed would suffer still further
lepression by the scaling down of the pur-
: hasing power oE cvcrv so-called dollar paid
nto the band of toil. From these impending
calamities it is surely the most patriotic and
jrateful uuty oE the representatives of the
ic ple to acliver them. 1 am , gentlemen ,

J'Wow Countrymen Before tbe dawn of tbe
century whose eventful vcars will soon have
faded into the past , when death had but lately
robbed this republic of its most beloved and
Illustrious citi/.en , the congress of the United
States pledged the faith of the nation that in
this city , bearing his honored name , and then
as now the scat of the general government ,
a monument should be erected to com
memorate tbi > great events of his military and
life. The n'atclv column wlilch strctehea
heavenward fr nn the plane whereon we stand
bears witness to all who behold It that the cov-
snant which our fathers made , their children
have fulfilled. In the completion of this
Teat work of patriotic endeavor , there Is
abundant cause for national rejoicing , for
while the structure shall endure , it shall be to
all mankind steadfast , a token oE affection
and the reverend regard in which these people
continue to bold the memory of " \ \ ashiugtoii.
Well mav he ever keep foreniost in place in
the hearts of his countrymen. The faith that
never faltered , the wisdom deeper and broad
er than any taught iu school , the courage
tvhlch shrank from no peril and was dismayed
by no defeat , the loyalty that kept all selnsh
purpose subordinate to tbe demands of patri
otism and honor , the sagacity that displayed
itself in camp and cabinet alike and above all
tbat harmonious union oE moral and intellec
tual qualities which bus never found Its paral
lel among men. These are attributes which
the Intelligent thought of this century ascribes
to tbe grandest figure of the past. But other
and more eloquent lips than mine will to-day
rehearse to you the story of his noble life and
Its glorious achievements. To myself has been
assigned the simple and mere formal duty m
the 'fulfilment of which I do now , as the pres
ident o the United States , and m behalf of
the people , receive this monument from tue
bands of its builder and declare it dedicated
from this time forth to the immortal naniu
ind memory of George Washington. "

thirty-seven years ago ; the life and public ser-
riccs oE Waihlngtou and its beneficial effect
m the future of mankind , as shown by Uie
ivonderful progress of the nation which he did
; o much to found , and closed with the follow
ing brilliant neroration :
"Our matcliless obelisk stands proudly be-
'ore us to-day , and we hail it with tbe exulta-
ions of a united and glorious nation. It may
> r mav not be proof against the cavils or
ritics.'but nothing of human construction Is
igainst the casualties of time. The storms of
finter must blow and beat upon it. Ibe ac-
ion of the elements must soil and discolor It.

lie homage of succeeding ages in all remoua
