NEW YORK , Juno 17. Tn response to formal
Announcement of his nomination by tlio green
back labor national convention General Butler
sa :
LOWKLI , Ma s. , Juno 12. Gentlemen of the
Committee : I received at your hands the offi
cial announcement of the action taken by the
convention at Indianapolis with deep sensi
bility. In ordinary cause of political events ,
the choice of a convention of representative
moa from nny considerable portion of my fel
low citizens according to mo this highest honor
that thov can confer would caN for grateful
acknowledgement , oven though it might bo a
Detection to represent the thought of such a
convention upon questions wich commonly di
vide political parties , the views upon such
questions may have boon an out-
irronth of measures merely of admiuir' on. questions you present aroluW. . . and
grander than any mere political measure ,
Nearly a quarter of a century ago when the
very existence of the repabllc and the estab
lishment of democratic representative govern
ment hunt ; trembling upon the Issue of the
greatest civil wur the world has ever known or
may ever know , by the wisdom born of an im
perious necessity , a financial system sprung
crom the patriotic'impulso to save ho nation s
life and rescue the hope of free institutions ,
for nil men , from going down forever in dark
ness and death , was devised by the gre.'it and
good men of that day , to whoso care a repub
lican government to be administered for the
people and by the people had
boon trustingly confided. That system
of finance for a free people in its infancysavod
the life of u nation perishing without it ; and
broke the chains Which edslavcd four million
men. It give to this country war raging a
prosperity it had iwver known. It enabled
people to us ess upon themselves and pay
taxes to an extent before unknown in any
country. It made it possible for the govern
ment to repay ttliree-fold all the loans it had
received from any creditor or give to him a BO-
curity more profitable and staple than had
over been issued by any power in tha world ,
and made ths financial system of our at once
the envy and admiration of all men.
This was done by the legal tender currency
while questions as to its stability were raised
by the very foim of the legislation by which it
was enacted , and while still graver doubts
prevailed in the minds of many wise and
patriotic men as to whether a legal-tender
currency , inexpensive in fact , resting not on
the intrinsic value of thu matter on which it
was coined , was within the constitutional com
petency and power of the legislative brenches
of government. That question having been
three times submitted to the supreme court of
the United SUtes , the very highest tribunal
of constitutional construction , was at last de
cided in the affirmative with such unanimity
that there could not possibly bo any reason
able doubt against it.
One purpose of your organization , and of
thosa who thought and acted with you , al
though not of it , was to support and sustain
this money as the currency of the people This
people's currency , you all remember , was do-
signaled by its friends by the pet name of
the "Greenback" two years ago. I did my
self the honor to say that that currency , so
commended hy the merit of its great deeds ,
wrought for the people' * safety and pros
perity emoted by the highest legislative pow
er , adjudicated by such a court. With
the decision about to bo reaffirmed was an ac
complished fact never again to bo disturbed or
doubted , to that its friends might well Hay ,
"See , the end of our labors in this regard
has comof BO lot us rejoice ; " let those
who aided in thii great work press on to that
deal with equally important , unsettled and
necessary mo.isurcs for the welfare of the
whole people.
The legjl tender ha\ing become the very
foundation of , as well as a measure of value ,
ontcrtainad with all the business of the people ,
the engine of thu prosperity of the nation , it
seems to me almost an act of cruelty to dis
turb causelessly a financial question which has
been so fcet at rett with thu assent of all good
men , as much so as was thu question of the
right of man to hold his brother man in
slavery , thpiefore , I said : "I am glad that
that question has no longer a part in political
consideration and that statesmanship may
now 'urn from ic as the country has turned
from tha quest ion of
lint , alas ! the power of the darkness , of the
error , of the rcsunoctionisls. of thu false ideas
of the dead past , have dug up the remains of
contention from thu peaceful graves whore
they slept , and threaten by a re-hash of ex
ploded Resolutions formulated into a platform
oy n party convention , to revivify and agitate
controversies which will unsettle commercial
values , lander and delay the business encigics
of our people , and with but a single object to
extend a sys.em of purely paper cuirency ,
isduod.h corporations established by govern
ment indeed , out for private emolument and
gain to corporators which currency itself ia to
, bo Vflluahla only because it is made redeem-
nb'e in tlioveiy greenback which this ghaul-
lika agitation sculis to repudiate , ovoitbruw
and destroy tuch currency.

errors of nil administration which had Intuln *

Waiting the Result of the Saratoga

CAIOAUO , Juno 17. Kx-Sonator Jooscph K.
McDonald is still at tha Grand Pacific hotel.
Ho is overrun with c&llerj. As his Chicago
stay ia being prolonged , well grounded suspi
cion has found lodgement in some heads that
ho is seizing an opportunity to look after his
fences. Among his callers to-day were Colonel
Dowdall , of Peoria , and Judge A. L. Koache ,
of Indianapolis. Dowdall spent pretty much
all of Monday with him. Ho is a McDonald
man and thinks that Illinois will support him
for the second place , but not for the first
place , unless New York state should instruct
lor him. This is not likely and
Senator McDonald Is thought to _ bo
wise in keeping the vice-presidency in view
along with the first place. Since McDonald's
arrival at the Pacific , there have been a num
ber of parties of Illinois democrats making the
samu hotel their headquarters. To one of his
visitors Mr. MoDonald to-day said that ho
would remain in Chicago until after the Sara
toga convention to-morrow. He is awaiting
tha result of the gathering with a great deal of
intciest because it ia believed that whatever
thu candidatu the Now York delegation comu
hero to support will bo nominated. The Na
tional convention is supposed to hinge on
New York this year moro closely than it has
ever been known to do so before. Now
York has the dictation of the nominee- _ This
is the feeling in Illinois and a very prominent
democrat in the ttato declared this morning
that the feeling was shared throughout the
country. "The democrats must have New
York to succeed , " said this gentleman.
"And wo are centering all of
our energies upon that state on this account.
If Now ifork should declare for Bayard ho
would bo nominated. If it should declare for
Cleveland he would be nominated , or for
Flower , or forony man. And good democrats'1
throughout this country are willing to give
New York the position , because wo are
anxious to secure the New York vote. I pre
dict that the convention will be short if the
Saratoga convention to-morrow instructs for
a candidate. Among the talks which
Mr. McDonald's preaenco provokes ,
is the statement that Governor
Itendricks is favorable to McDonald's candi
dacy for presidency , but that he does not be
lieve the idea of his fellow-statesmen working
for the second place. The gentleman quoted
above , who talked long with Mr. McDonald ,
says tiiattho ex-senator's greatest obstacle is
Hendrick's opposition to having the vice-
presidency go to any other Indianian than
himself ( Hendricks ) . His attitude is likened
to that of the dog in the manger. But , like
Senator McDonald , Hendricks is waiting for
the Saratoga convention. If it Instructs for
Cleveland or Flower , it is thought it will bo
doubtful whether Hendricks will come from
Indiana as delegato-at-large.
Democratic Conventions.
NBW YOIIK , Julio 17. Four hundred mom
bora of the county democracy started for

convention and always would. One hundred

and eighty delegates of the democratic state
convention are hero. All the delegates are
expected this afternoon. As n result of the
meeting thu state committed to-night are
anxiously looked forward to. Friuirds of both
Cleveland and Flower are. both equally posi
tive in expressions of belief of thu success of
their candidate. The inuin point of tha
frimuh of Cleveland is to secure thu vote of
the convention for him as state nominee HO as
to send a solid plighted vote for him to Chica
go. This v > ill bu done if the unitrulois
adopted by the convention. The Tammany
men hero ro not in favor of the rule and
unless Kelluy's influence bo for it they will
likely opponu it. The question is likely to

A Variety or General News ,
WASHINGTON , Juno 17. In the senate , after
the reading of the journal , Brown rose to n
question of privilege. He had the clerk rend
th'o remarks that Ingalls madu yesterday in
reference to his ( Brown's ) remarks made In
thu debate of FridaV last. When the clerk
had concluded the reading Brown said he had
not replied to lugall's remarks yesterday 4ba-
CHUM ) liu did not wish to speak under thu irri
tation vtliich IngaH' lemarks were calculated
to provoke. In what ho had to say hu would
keep In the decorum ( if the senate and had re
duced his remarks to writing. Ho celled
thu attention of the euuato to tha
insulting and approbrlous language used
by the sanator from Kansas ( Ingalls ) toward a
member of the senate who could not ropclVich
insults without violating thu rules which all
senators yero in honor bound to obey. Brown
did not wish to glaze over this matter , Thu
charge of the senator from Katm was that of
falsifying the record ami committing forgery
upon the records of the senate. This language
was deliberately plannoi ) , an insult mid not
only In violation of tha rules of thu sounto , but
in defiance of the authority of tha presiding
The Chair said the senator from Georgia- was
out of order
Brown Thou , sir , tha remark' is with
drawn under the ruling of the chair ,
That senator shod Ink water. Ho was very
courageous with thu pen. . Ingalls would not
bo diverted from thu real question ot issue.
That question was whether thu records of the
senate had been falsified by interpolation of
matter personal in its character susceptible
only an olfonsivo interpretation after the re
cords ha\tt been made up by report , This
would not havu been donuln tha ordinary af
fairs of life between ono gentleman anil an
other. Thu chair thougnt this remark out of
order. Ingalla then withdrew the remark
and said to the chair that it would
not appear in the record.
Ho inquired how it would bo if n senator
should s mo day appear hero to represent
Alaska , mid ho ( IngaU ) after a debate witli
that senator should unite Into the debate state
ments to the effect that the senator from Alas
ka was n cunning and sanctimonious hypocrite
who was ever washing his hands with an in
visible soap > in impercflptablo water , and that
they were apt tobe eVer clean morally after
tliat-perforraance ; suppose ) ho were to bo char
acterized the senator from Alaska after the de
bate had closed as "Uriah
Heep" of the senate. Suppose
ho were to say ho was the Joseph Surface of
American politics , that ho was a snivelling , n
political 1'ucksniff , who had bcqn upon all
sides of every political question , who liad belonged -
longed to every political paity in his lifutime ,
and belonged to none that ho had not betrayed ,
would not that bo in the privileges of the
debate , or in accordance with thu proprieties
relative to the proceedings ?
There was no place as safe as the senate
chamber for a man discrete in courage to
blunter and parade his vituperative rhetoric ,
no other senator would have used Much Ian-
guagu as the senator from Kansas bad used
under the protection of the senate , and he
( Ingalls ) would not use it except under the
protection of the senate. Ingalls said that if
the senator from Georgia would allow the re
marks made this morningto stand ns they hid
been delivered , ho ( Ingnlls ) would bo content
ed , but if tliCBO remarks weru to bo amended
by interpolations and observations delivered
alter they hod been Kent to the printing house ,
ho ( Ingnfli ) preferred to wait before canvass
ing the vote until all the rotunm were in.
The senator from Georgia , Ingalls said , was
mightier with thu pun than with cither thu
tongun or Hwoixl.
These observations Ingalln ho used a ? illus
trations. They had no personal application
as to imputations of benator fruin Georgia
upon his ( IngiUls ) personal courage and up-
nearanco , he begged to say to thu senator
noin Georgia that ho ( Ingalls ) hero distinctly
avowed nil that ho had hitherto said in any
Kcn-o , that if thuuenator from Georgia n\\v fit
to attribute to it and that ho ( Ingills ) did not
shield himself behind thu privilege' ) of thu
senntu chamber , ( the usual bicathlng pause
following the duhi cry of this Huntencii was
characterized by the dead nllenco in chamber
and crowded galleries , whun I galn ! odd ) ,
