"Washington , February 6. By
a vote of 20 to 28 the Senate refused
to elect Mr. Thurman Prealdeut pro
tern. , and theu elected Mr. Ferry to
that position. Mr. Davia , of Illi
nois , voted with the Democrats.
Mr. Ferry wan the unanimous
< t- > choice of the .Republican caucus.
Mr. Bsck called up his resolution
declaring it inexpedient to impose
taxea at this tluie for the puapose of
providing for a sinking fund , and
directing the Secretary of the
Treasury not to purchase any bonds
for reduction of the principle of the
national tlobt until further orders
from Congress. Fencing ditcusslon
morning hour expired aud the sub.
J2Ct was laid aride.
Consideration was .resumed of uu-
objected bills on the calendir.
When the senate bill to organize
the life saving and coastguard ecr-
vsce was reached , Mr. Sargent gave
notice that he would ask tiie eanate
to flx an early day for iu considera

eign built ship for purposes of
"Woodrufl'fl scientific expedition

Mr. Spencer aud laid over.
All unobjected cases on the cal
endar having been disposed of , Mr.
Wallace called up the bill to author
ize the long bond for investment of
savings BO that it should bo unllu-
c iahcd business to-morrow , aud the
senate went Into executive eefcsicn ,
and when the doors reopened ad
Mr. Rsagan , chairman of the com
mittee on commerce , reported back
the bill to regulate inter-State com
merce and prohibit unjust discrim
inations by common carriers. Or
dered printed and recommitted.
A petition seven hundred yards
long and oigned by titty thousand
names for the repeal of the law in
relation to the tran'smieskiu of mat
ter through the mails was referred.
Mr. Tipton , from the committee
on manufactures , reported n reaolu
tion which was ruled out , giving
committee more jurisdiction.
Mr. Steele , from the agricultural
committee , reported a bill r.j pr.iprl
atiug $10,000 for the eonirnibsion to
Investigate the cotton worm. Re
\ ferred to the committee of the
Mr. Southard explained that tbo
resolution introduced yesterday ou
the electoral question did not ex-
J Vess * his views , but was introduced
The speaker then called the com
mittees for reports.
Mr. Chalmers made a speech in
defense of the President's southern
policy and of the action of the .Lou
isiana authorities in the prosecution
of the members of the returning
board. He replied to the speeches
of Hale and Uarfield , nud in refer
ence to the latter said lha voica was
the voice of Jacob , but the hand i
was the hand of E--au.
Mr. Chalmers asserted that
Messrs. Hale and Garfleld cunning
ly assaulted the President's south
ern policy , and Aimed to diive the
President from his party or from
his policy , aud also 10 alienate
Mr. Reagan made the point that
Mr. Chalmers was not making a
personal explanation , and deprecat
ed arousing bitterness.
Mr. Chalmers proceeded that
.Democrats didn't intend to build up
the Rspubhcan party by warring on
the President. He justified the returning -
turning board prosecutions in law ,
re&aou and justice. The man who
took up arms in defense of constitu
tional law was certainly no worse a
traitor than the one who robbed the
people of the fruits of elective
victories. Ho declared that history
would tihow that the South had not
kept bad faith. However , as Hayea
had done his constitutional duty in
marked contrast to his predecessor ,
he would , if governor or Louisiana ,
pardon the whole returning board
to remove any suspicion of iucrall-
tude. While nearly nil Republican
leaders were denouncing the Presi
dent for beeping hia word the south
would stand by him with few
exceptions It was republicans who
were sounding the notes of war on
Hayes , and not the democrats , who
were , through the returning board
prosecutions , making an attempt
against his title , as Mr. Garlield
claimed. He disbelieved the
Wormley bargain , but If made he
would not crlticke harshly its ma
Mr. Butler got the floor , the
House going into the dtate of the
Union , and made his finaucisl
speech. Ha declared himself for
lull restoration of silver coinage ,
and that to make hilver dollars full
legal tender was honest , legitimate ,
and demanded by exigencies of the
times. Ho denied that $ SO 000- ,
000 bonds or any such amount
had besn returned from
Iflurope , but wished it were true.
He wished six per ceuts and all
othera would roturu. He wanted to
see silver and wheat sent abroad io
pay our debts aud give us the bil-
anco of trade , He saw neither
wiEdom nor statesmanship in lock
ing our silver iu vaults , and depre
cated the withdrawal of paper cur
rency and substitution of tulwidia-
ry silver , as the people were to
be taxed an enormous eum repre
sented by five psr cent , compound
interest on flfty millions for thirty
years , and that If the secretary of
the treasury who framed tiiat meas
ure had ever sat down and mnde
calculation aud then foolishly cast
that enormous burden ou the
people , he ought to be hanged to
the nearest lamp post for malice
toward all mankind. If he hud not
done eo , he ought to be hanged at
all events for getting into an office
he could not rill.
Mr. Butler concluded as follows :
We want the greenback for our cur
rency and mean to have it , but I do
not desira that greenback currency
be made to serve the country as It
has done viilified , insulted , depre 3
ciated by act of the government
itself , being refused not only to be
received for all debts due the gov
ernment , not even paid far all de
mands due from the government ,
the American system of finance
which will obtain in the near
future , and I hope at once. What
1 desire is , first a dollar that shall
have at all times a certain Axel
and staple value , below which It
cannot go ; second , I demand a
dollar that shall be issued by the
government alone in the exercise of
its high prerogative and constitu
tional power , and that power shall
not bo delegated to any
corporation or individual any
more than Charles the Second
ought to have delegated his
prerogative of stamping gold coin
for the benefit of bin paramours as a
monopoly ; third , I want that dollar
stamped on some convenient and
cheap material of the least possible
intrinsic value , so that neither the
wear nor its destruction will be any
loss to the government issuing it ;
fourth , I nloo desire a dollar to be
made of such material for the pur
poae that it shall never be exported
or desirable to carry it out of the
country. In framing an American
f ystera of finance I do not propose
to adapt It to the wants of any oth
er nation , and especially the Chi
nese , who are nearlyonequarter
of the world. Fifth , I desire that
the dollar so issued shall
never be redeemed. I see no more
my cloth , or the quart with which I
measure my milk , shall bB redeem
ed ; sixth , for convenience ouly I
propose the dollar so issued shall be
quite equal or little better than the
profeut value of average gold del
lar of the world , not to be changed
or changeable : If the gold dollar
grows lower in value or grows
higher , not to be obliged to conform
itself in value in auy regard to tue
dollar of any other nation of the
world , keeping itself always etablo
nnii fixed , so that when the proper
ty of the country adjusts itself to it
8 a value it shall remain
the fiqcd standard forever ; but if
it is ever changed It shall change
equally and alike for the creditor
aud debtor , not as a dollar based up
on supposed gold. To give green
back currency thus desired a fixed
and stahlo value. - |

England and Austria Propose and

the Turkish Empire.
By Cable to ths Chicago Tribnm.
London , February 26. Russia hi
made another move toward Con
stantinople. The Grand Duke Nich
olas yesterday occupied San Stefauo ,
a village about ten miles west of
Constantinople on the eea of Mar
mora. At the same time reports of
Russia's terms of peace are circulat
ing , which show that no leniency
can bo expected.
Bulgaria will reach to Sslonlca ,
and will be occupied by 50 000 Rus
sians for two years. The amount of
indemnity demanded is enormous ,
amounting to more than France
paid to Germany , besides immense
cessions of territory. A demand
for the Turkish 11 set was pressed at
first , but it is slated that the Sultan
that this point was temporarily
waived. A Constantinople correspondent
pendent telegraphs that this is all
a piece of by-play between Russia
and Turkey to ece whether any ror-
eign power will resist the cession of
tne Turkish fleet to Rusaia. It has
to accustom the world gradually to
her exactions , and it la noticeable
lhat eventually nho always gets ex
actly what she first demanded. It
may therefore be expected that
Russia will finally obiaiu possession
of Turkey's beat vesntle , and will
thus control the Black Sea , for as I
telegraphed several weeka ago ,
Russia prop ea to close the Dardan

Postal Savin ? Banks.
Washington , D. C. , Feb. 27. The

XXOTHEK COAL DISCO VERY.
Yesterday we chartered a double-
seated carriage aud a team of fast-
flyers ; we had no idea when we
ordered them that any such rig was
accessible in thia town of the prair
ies , but Homau's stable , with
all its resources could not
surpass for ease and swiftness
the outfit , which our landlord of the
Sunders house ( tiie best hotel in this
part of tbe State ) brought forth from
his well stocked stable.
Then followed a ride of seven
miles across the prairie. But little
attention was paid to roads , for the
surface ! was almost as smooth as a
floor and we coul J go as we pleased.
Seven miles out we drew up in front
oi the sod house or rather "dug out"
of Albert Miner , the originator of the
The house or pit , for it is more of
the latter than the former , being
about two-tbirda in the earth and
one-third in heaven , was simply a
hole in the ground 14x14 feet , with
a eod covering and a few tiers of
turf io raise the roof from the
ground. A few chairs , a bench , a
stove and a bed make an inventory
of the furniture.
We were cordially welcomed by a
pleasant , intelligent woman , with a
pretty baby. This was Mrs. Miner ,
and from her we obtained the coal
story , which is very similar to that
told by the discoverer of the Sutton
coal mine , and wo do not doubt but
that thia is the same vein that has
been struck in the more western lo
In June , 1876 , Mr. Miner sunk a
well on his homestead , to the depth
of 120 feet. Nearly a year after
wards he cleaned out the well by
dipping it dry , and in BO
doing he brought up some hard
black pieces of what he at first sup
posed to ba rock but which when
placed in the slovo'coon took fire
aud disappeared in white aahes.
Before concluding his labors the
water became so black and full of
coal dust that it was quite inky , for
we teke it for granted that the coal
actually does exist , as the neighbors
hayo tested the black chunks so
commonly drawn from tbe well
and yet , strange as It may seem ,
every one of them had reen burned
up and not a sample remained for
us to send to experts for
analysis. Th.'a ' place la only
and whenever tbe water runs low
the same trouble is now experienced
and chunks of coul ura brought up
Stranjie to say , the man has ne"-
er eaid much about the matter , and
has never mnde an effort toward
testing the question of the extent
and value of the deposit.
Five miles from Exeter Is the
nearest station , but the best way to
reach the farm is from Friendville.
