Crowded Galleries Witness nn Ex-
clthiff Day In the Senate. *
It Leads the Indiana Statesman Into
n llrcaoh of. 1'arllmcntary Ktl-
qitctto When His Wnr Hoc-
ord Is Ilccnllctl.
WASHINGTON , May 1. The scnnto naileries
presented nn unusually animated appearance
at the opening of to-day's session , being
crowded with spectators principally Indies
drawn hy the announcement of a speech by
Mr. IngaUs In response to Voorhecs' Invcctlvo
of \vcdncsday. .
At the conclusion of morning business Mr.
Stewart proceeded to address the scnato In
support of his silver coinage resolution , after
which It was adopted.
At 2 o'clock Mr. Ingnlls commenced his
speech. Ho recalled the fact that In July
last Major General Fltz J6hn Porter wrote a
letter to his friends thanking them aud say
ing his heart was always with them. Tno
senator from Indiana had complained last
Wednesday that an attempt had been made
to blacken the names of all the great civil
and military leaders In the late war who had
remained true to the democratic party.
Fitz John Porter was one of those military
leaders who maintained his nllcglanco
to the democratic party , and he , within
the lasl four mouths , although ho had been
honorably dismissed from the service ana
had been restored by the action of the demo
cratic party nnd Its members who had been
members of the confederacy , had written
that bis "heart was always with them. "
Referring to General McClollan , Mr. In-
galls spoke of his education nt West Point ;
of bis busino ss connection with Bcaurcgard
nnd his attempt to extend and continue
human slavery by the acquisition of Cuba.
Ho Bpoko of him as having begun his mili
tary career by disobeying the orders of Gen
eral Scott ; as having abandoned Popcnt
Ccntrovlllo ; us having failed to put the reb
els to the sword at Antlctam ; as having re
fused to obey the orders of the president and
follow the rebels to Winchester ; and as hav
ing fatally controlled the destiny of the
nrmy until the buttle of Frcderieksburg.
History had pronounced Us verdict upon him
as u soldier , and the senator from Indiana
would not bo able to place him
in the category with Napoleon , Han
nibal and Cicsar. Ho ( IngaUs ) dealt
with him as a politician and said no ono could
read his letter to President Lincoln after the.
disastrous seven days' flght on the Peninsula
and before Richmond without coming to the
conclusion that ho was not fully and actively
in sympathy with the forces , ideas and senti
ments which wore then controlling the
American people.
As to General Hancock , ho also , Mr. In-
galls said , was ono of the military leaders ,
who wcro true to the domocrcy. His martial
career was ono of the impcrishalo heritages of
American glory. Ho ma'rchcd and triumphed.
Ho filled the abyss of fame with names which
would bo eternally luminous. The Peninsula ,
Antlctam , Gettysburg , Chancellorvillo , Cold
Harbor nnd Petersburg. Had ho been a sol
dier under Napoleon ho would have been
prluco and marshal of the empire. Ho had
well been called Hancock the Superb.
But after the war closed ho , HkoMcCIcllnn ,
had become tainted with the fatal virus of
nmbitlon for tbo presidential nomination , but
notwithstanding his magnificent and unap
proachable career , the American people
recognized his hostility to the reconstruction
Measure's , and in the presidential election of
1880 ho carried but three noi them states , Cali
fornia , Nevada nnd Now Jersey , and the first
two of them had been stolen by the forgery
nnd fraud of the Moroy letter issued by dem
ocratic politicians. Ho had also received the
138 electoral votes of the solid south , which
had been promised him , In his speech at Cin
cinnati by the , senator from South Carolina ,
Mr. Hampton. Mr. Ingalls spoke of the
affected indignation of the senators from
Indiana nnd Kentucky as discreditable to
their intelligence or their candor. If they
Old not know that ho had spoken of these
union generals not as soldiers but as poli
ticians and ns democratic candidates for the
presidency , they wore dull , stupid and ignor-
unt indeed , If they did not know it and per
sisted in their assertions they wcro disin
genuous and he suspected , if such a thing
wcro possible , that they were both. ( Laugh
ter ) .
Mr. Ingalls , continuing , said : Mr. Presi
dent , from tbo impassioned eulogy ; from the
rhapsody of approbation that flowed from the
senator from Indiana at tlio great military
achievements of McClcllan and Hancock , I
began to have some doubts who It was that
really put down the rebellion. I was driven
curiously to inquire what wan the attltudo of
the democratic party in the north und the
senator from Indiana as ono of its great lead
ers in 1602 , when McClollan , thti ideal demo
crat , was lighting the battle of Antictum , and
in 18ft ) . whun Hancock was hurling back In
confusion and dismay the scattered squadrons
of the confederacy. I was really , for u mo
ment , Mr. President , inclined to believe- that
the democrats of the north , tbo senator from
Indiana , and those other great patriots whom
ho eulogizes as an immovable- bulwark of
liberty , of the constitution and the
union Thomas Hendrlcks nnd Horatio
Seymour and Wm. A. Hlclmrdson wcro in
the full panoply of battle , assisting McClol-
Inn , assisting Hnncoqk , doing what they
should to make the success of the armies
possible. And it seems lllto the very cliijmx
of effrontery , Ilka the apex of audacity , for
thcso men , whoso history Is so well known ,
Tvho wcro from the beginning avowed cue-
mies'of the causa of the union nt every stop
of its progress , and who. like the senator
from Indiana , were avowedly hi sympathy
with the south at the outset , ami wore advo
cates nnd champions for slavery and seces
sion , who gnvo aid and comfort to the rebel
lion in every possible way "Copperheads , "
"Butternuts" [ Laughter ] "The Knights
of thn Golden Circle , " with all their brutal ,
degraded lies appearing hero as advocates
mid champions of union soldiers and of the
cause of human liberty , I sup
posed from the enthusiasm displayed
in favor of the military achievements
of McClcllan and Hancock , that wo should
upon inspection nt lust find that the leaders
of the democracy , who had been so eulogized ,
were in sympathy with the union causa anil
in sympathy with the efforts that they wcro
making to overthrow the confederacy. Yet ,
Mr. 1'rosldent , at the very time , and during
the very year when McClellun was fighting
the battle of Antlctam , the senator from In
diana , without excepting McClellnn and
\vitl.out excepting Hancock , speaking at .Sul
livan. Intl. , on the 5th of August , IbU. , gold ,
in reference- thq union soldiers , that they
should go to the nearest blacksmith shop and
have iron collars iniulo nnd placed around
their nocks with the words inscribed thereon
in largo letters , "My dog. A. Lincoln , " nnd
nt the same tiuio ho referred to the union
toldlcis as Lincoln's dogs and hirelings ,
without excepting McClellun or Hancock.
( Laughter nnd applause ] . And , dur
ing the campaign , Mr. President ,
that resulted in the election of
Abraham Lincoln , the senator from Indiana ,
whn is now co vehemently in favor of the
prosecution of the war of the rebellion for
putting down the south : who so eulogizes the
ciToits of the union nrimcs and the genius of
the union commanders ; who poses hero as n
eycclal friend of the union soldier and as
perses criticism upon the i > oUUcul characters
itud affiliations of those who were engaged in
that war , made n speech at Grccncastlo ,
Which was reported in the Cincinnati Coin-
pjcrclal , August S , IbOl , by Joseph H. McCu- }
V Jnfih. now suitor of the St. Louis Globe Dem-
Mr. Ingalls read extracts frqm the speech
which declared the war n failure and spoke
of Lincoln as u monster und im. unhappy
Ho passed to the question of the electoral
tczatulwlcn of le ? ! ) und Uted that Uus a
pit the democratic party had dug nnd fallen
Into. Ho referred to Hon. Henry Walter-
son's proclamation for "ono hundred thou
sand unarmed Kcntuckhins" to visit Wash
ington , nnd concluded by saying that they
failed to matoralize owing to Grant's firm-
nes ? , because If thcro was anything that
would turn the average democrat Inside out ,
with indignation , It was the sight of n fed
eral soldier In hluo uniform. [ Laughter. ]
Referring to the fact that the country still
hod the confederacy against it with nil that
It implied in the past , ho asked , who was
Lucius Qulntus Curtlus Lnmarl Ho wai
never suspected of being n lawyer. [ Laugh
ter. ] His bitterest enemy never accused
him of that. Ho never had been admitted to
the bar of the supreme court , on whoso
bench ht'Iwas appointed. Ho never had tried
n reported case in any tribunal , state or na
tional , for thirty years. It was an open se
cret that the president nt ono tlmo peremp
torily refused to appoint him. Ho nskcd
what necessity thcro iiud been for the presi
dent to offend the loyal sentiment
of the country by placing on
tbo bench of the supreme court a man who
was not n lawyer and who never bad been ,
and who had called Abraham Lincoln n
buffoon. Why , of all men in the south , did
the democracy select him and force him on n
reluctant president nnd n reluctant people !
It was because Lnmnr was the nearest and
dearest friend and representative of Jeffer
son Davis. Thcro was no other explanation
of It. If that was not true , then his nomina
tion was n farce and a burlesque without ex
cuse or explanation ,
Mr. Ingalls then referred to the speech
mndo In the house of representatives In 1879
by Mr. Blackburn declaring it to bo the pur
pose and Intention of the democratic party to
keep on until It wiped from the statute book
the last vestige of the war.
Passing on to the question of elections In
the 'south , ho snld , the republican party
would have no right to complain If the south
wcro kept solid by fair means. 13ut the
democrat thcro had been playing
the political gamewith loaded
dice nnd had been "throwing sixes" all
the timo. Ho held "stacked cards , " and
played with a "cold deck. " Ho had a re
volver in his boot aud a bowie knife Gown
the back of his neck. In closing Mr. Ingalls
said in the centuries that are to como ho saw
the vision of united , prosperous and happy
America , a vast , homogeneous domain of
free men , the rulers of the continent from
the polo on to the Gulf , from the Atlantic to
the Pacific , enjoying the franchises of liberty
and the perpetuating arts of pence. The
people should remember , ho said , on each re
curring day when they celebrated those who
had died , that this country hold in its fruit
ful and tender breast no more priceless
treasure than the consecrated dust of tboso
who had died in order that this might bo a
government of laws and not of men , and that
liberty and constitutional government might
not perish forever from the fnco of the earth.
Mr. Voorhecs arose and in slow , measured ,
resonant tones remarked that the speech
which the scnato had just listened to recalled
to his mind the fable of the mountain in
labor. Two hours had passed away , after
the blast of a trumpet before the largo audience
enceand the senate , and what had
they heard and what had they seen I A poor ,
small mouse creeping off. His allusion last
Wednesday to the senator from Kansas had
been merely incidental. Men mistook them
selves nnd the senator from Kansas did so
more than any ono ho know. That senator
had not been ulivo politically since the Cth of
March last , when the senator from Kentucky
( Mr. Blackburn ) disposed of him. Ho had
mndo no attack upon him , but upon the re
publican party. Ho proceeded to compare
Ingalls to u peacock on a barnyard fence ,
posing of a summer morning , looking nt his
own feathers as they glanced in the sun nnd
vocalizing the whole neighborhood with his
harsh , unmusical nnd unmeaning cry , un
mindful of the fact that therewcro more
useful fowls in the barnyard. How useless
it had been for that senator to arraign
him. Ho ( Mr. Ingalls ) had read to the
senate the old , stale , putrid , rotten
slanders of years gene by on which ho
( Voorhees ) had trampled in forty political
campaigns. That ho over uttered ono word
against union soldiers or talked of their hav
ing collars around their necks was a base
Mr. Voorhecs alluded In a sarcastic and
amusing manner to Ingalls' war record nnd
said ho would stand with the senator before
the soldiers of Indiana or Kansas nnd quit
the senate If ho was not approved by them
over Ingalls.
Mr. Ingalls replied that ns the senator from
Indiana had seen fit to invite n comparison
between their records and their ru.ins ; ; to
the Krcat question of the past twenty-
flvo years , ho felt it his
duty to put it on record
from information In his possession ,
what the senator's history and record was.
Ho should refer only to public matters In
public records , and should venture the afllr-
matlon that whatever ; might have been his
( Ingulls1) ) attitude toward the great struggle
between the north and south the senator
from Indiana had been from the outsctthodo-
termlned , outspoken , positive , aggressive
nnd malignant enemy of the union.
"I pronounce that , " said Mr. Voohces. ris
ing with anger In his eyes , "to bo n deliber
ately false accusation. I voted for every
dollar for that soldier , for every stitch of
clothes bo wore , for every pension bill that
rewarded his services. "
Mr. lugallR said the senator came in hero
to-day and thanked God ho never had been
followed hero by a committee to question his
right to his scat ; and with much dilTusencss
of illustration had endeavored to cast asper
sions upon him ( Ingalls ) and belittle him nnd
humiliate him in the eyes of the American
people when ho ( Ingalls ) had only referred to
the senator's public utterances his speeches
which ho had never denied.
Mr. Voorliccs declared that ho did deny it.
Mr. Ingalls replied that the senator could
not deny the publication ho had read. It was
ci verbatim report and so certified to.
Mr. Voorhecs assorted that not a word or a
syllable said by the senator was true or be
lieved to bo true in Indiana. The accusa
tion had boon trampled under foot. The
senator's accusation that ho ( Voorhecs ) had
ever been n member of the political
secret society , the Knights of the Golden
Circle , was so huso and infamously false that
ho did not know how to choose lauguago to
denounce it ns such.
Mr. Ingnlls , continuing , snld the senator
from Indiana hod written a letter for F. A.
Slmto which that gentleman took south with
him nnd filed In the confederate war depart
ment in support of his application for an np-
puintment us brlgndlcr general In the confed
erate army. The letter was dated December
I ! ? , ISM , and said : "On the disturbing twos-
tloji of the day , his ( Shuto's ) sentiments are
entirely with the south , and ono of his ob
jects is pi obably to secure a homo In that
bcctlon. I take this occasion to say that his
sentiments and mine are in close harmony. "
The senator said the charge that ho called
the union soldiers "hirelings and Lincoln
dogs" uiuUsaid tlint they ought to go to a
blacksmith shop and have an Iron collar
put around their necks with the inscription
' 'My Dog Abraham Lincoln , " was u cam
paign slander nnd u scandal that had been
spit upon. That averment could bo sub
stantiated by UK credible a witness as there
was in the city.
Voorhees And even If the senator said it ,
it would be an absolutely fnUo uud pnlpablu
Ingalls Tlio senator Is disorderly.
Continuing Mr , Jntralls read from a paper
signed by n cltlrun of Sullivan county , who
stated that they wcro printout nt u iiiectlnv
on April 0,1SG3 , when Mr. Voorliccs mitdo
the statement quoted. Everybody know
what business the democratic party of In
diana had bcn engaged in during the war.
Seventy thousand of them had been mem
bers of the Knlgnls of the Golden Circle nuil
had been conspiring agalnuttho union. They
hud cntei ed into a csiyblnation , according to
General Holt , for the purpoao of aiding sol
diers to desert , discouraging enlistments , cir
culating treasonable publications , giving in
telligence to the enemy , nnd assassination
nnd murder , nni It was sticccptlble of
proof , tlint thojr did conspire
to unli-dcr government men. This
organization , which the senator bald ho never
belonged to , hr.d a ritual df which US copies
were found iri the senator's oftlco ut the tlmo
when HtuicocU was at Bloody Anglo. lu
that saniooftlto was found other corres
pondence concerning thticbjccln nnd "pur
poses of that organisation , q'ho correspond
ence of O. L. VftlUndmcbamnsK hi the office.
The senator , in his address to his con
stituents in 1S01 , hart declared ho would
never vote a single dollar nor n single man
for the prosecution of the war , nnd ho never
hnd done so so long nt ho wns In congress.
He had consistently nnd persistently voted
ngnlnst every mensuro for upholding the
union cause nnd reinforcing its nrmy.
Mr. Voorhees hero said if the gentleman
from Kansas would find S single veto that ho
hnd cast ngnlnst the pnyntcnt of soldiers for
their supplies , for bounties , against appro
priations for pensions , ho would resign hii
scat in the senate. Every word the senator
had stated on that subject was absolutely
false , by the record ; absolutely false. Ho
measured his words. The senator had said
that he ( Voorhecs ) was the object of his
charity. The senator was the object of his
contempt. He ( Voorhecs ) reiterated his de
ntal concerning his friendliness
to soldiers nnd snld the papers
spoken ot had been left In his office to put up
n job on him , Ho could only say , ns ho said
to the people whoso names wcro on the paper
from Sullivan county , that they lied and did
not tell the truth nor did the senator when
ho repeated what they snld. The letter with
regard to Captain Shuto ho had written. It
wns in December before the war , broke out
nnd ho had sympathized with the feeling that
thcro ought to bo a compromise. As to
charity ho responded to that with contempt.
Ingalls Did not the soldiers of Indiana
threaten to hang the senator with the boll
rene on n train after ho hnd inado that Lin
coln dog speech I
Voorhecs The senator Is n great liar when
ho Intimates such things ; n great liar and n
dirty dog. It never occurred ; never in the
world. That Is nil the nnswcr I have , nnd I
pass it back to the scoundrel behind the
senator who Is Instigating thcso lies.
( This remark made In reference to Represen
tative Johnson , of Indiana , who wns seated
nt the desk directly In the rear of Ingalls. )
Ingalls Thcro is a very reputable gentleman -
man in tho'chnmber , n citizen of Indiana , who
informs that mo the signers of the certificate
jaro entirely reputable inhabitants of Indiana ,
nnd that ho knows fifty people who heard the
Voorhees Tell him I say hells an Infamous
scoundrel and n liar. Tell him I say so.
Mr. Eustis , of Louisiana , said ho would
Inform the senator from Kansas that the
mode and manner in which the .Louisiana
election hnd been conducted , being n state
election , was none of his business , whatever.
Ho denounced as scandalous , vituperative
and unparliamentary , the language which
hud been used by the senator from
Kansas with reference to the people
ple of Louisiana. Thcro seemed to bo
a preconceived conspiracy among the repub
lican leaders to question the legality of elec
tions in the south for no other purpose than
to convince northern people that n democratic
administration elected by the suffrage- the
people was a usurpation.
Senator Gibson followed. Ho said the
charges of the senator from Kansas wcro an
aspersion upon the character and patriotism
of the southern people. The southern people
were doing their best. With benevolence ,
with charity , with composure and firmness
they were Invoking nil of the resources of
civilization to settle this question.
The senate then adjourned.
WASHINGTON , May 1. The scnato bill wns
passed granting the right of way through
Indian Territory to the Kansas City & Pacific
railroad company.
The house then went into committee of the
whole ( Mr. Springer of Illinois in the chair )
on the tariff bill.
Mr. McCrcary , of Kentucky , took the floor.
President Cleveland , ho said , had ma'do him
self conspicuous before the whole country by
the wisdom and courage exhibited in his
annual message , when ho recommended tax
reform nnd reduction of the surplus.
Congress snould lone ngo have reduced tax
ation , but the journals of the house would
show that the repeated efforts of the demo
cratic party in that direction were thwarted
by the gentlemen on the other side. Ho then
turned his attention to that portion of Kelly's
tariff speech in which the latter draws an
unfavorable condition of affairs in Kentucky ,
nnd the speaker declnrcd the statements
made by the gentleman wcro marvelous and
gross misrepresentations.
Mr. Fornn of Ohio opposed the bill. Ho
discussed it nt some length mid earnestly op
posed the proposition to plnco wool on the
free list. Touching upon wages , ho declared
if the bill passed , American workmen would
bo compelled to compete with English work
men nnd receive the same rate of pay for his
work. Ho protested now and would protest
under any nnd all circumstances against the
false assumption and suicidal" declaration
that thq soealled Mills bill involved demo
cratic principles and democratic duty. If it
was the intention of the bill to reduce the
surplus , it would prove nn nbortlvo failure.
As It now stood ho not only denounced it , but
ho repudiated and denounced it.
Mr. O'Ferrall ' of Virginia supported the
Mr. Dorscy of Nebraska followed in oppo
sition to the bill. Ho sold Industry and not
population created wealth. Ho adjured the
citizens of the west cither to stop trying to
build up their cities or to defeat such at
tempts ns wcro made in the pending bill to
break down industries. The president might
deceive the people until the next election but
the people would then detect and undo the
The commltteo then rose nnd the house

Dorscy Against Frco Trade.
WASHINGTON , D. C. , May 1 ,
Representative Ddrsoy ot the Third Ne
braska district delivered a speech on the
Mills tariff bill in thfi house this afternoon ,
nnd acquitted himself so well that ho was
heartily congrntulntbd. In opening hli remarks -
marks ho said : ' 'As ' ono of the representa
tives of ono of the great progressive agricul
tural states of the west , I feel it my duty to
oppose- this bill on the ground that I believe
it to bo n measure injurious alike to the agri
cultural nnd labor. Interests of the country.
This bill has not been prepared upon nny
principle whatever , but it Is an emergency
or expediency bill , patched up by the demo
cratic majority of the committee on ways nnd
means without giving n hearing to these in
terests which are viinlly nffectod by the
changes proposed. The frnmcrs of the bill
claim that they have followed In the line
recommended bv tho'prcsldent la his recent
message , In which ho poses ns the friend o'f
the fnrmcr , nnd wo .havo presented to us a
bill which , in my Judgment , Ipjurcs every
man engaged in agricultural pursuits in this
country. It would directly injure 1,000,000
of our farmers because it proposes to put
wool on the frco list , nnd it would indirectly
injure every farmer In the country , because
it proposes to reduce the duty or place on
the free list so many1 articles that are now
manufactured hero , and destroy so many im
portant industries , nnd thus drive the opera
tives to agricultural pursuits. In this rc-
sncct the bill is the most vicious ever pre
sented to the republican"congress. "
Mr. Dorscy then gave an epitome of the
different tariff acts ilrom 1810 to the present
tlmo that relate to wool and woolens , and
showed that when protection was given the
wool growing industry * the Hocks increased
nnd the weight of flecco also Increased , and
the Industry was remunerative and prosper
ous. He also showed that under an insufll-
cicnt tariff the number of sheep in the coun
try decreased and thd industry was seriously
crippled , that this.-like alt other Industries ,
needs stability ; lipw , under a protective
tariff and the building up of manufacturing
Industries , the valuaof the products of the
farm has increased , as' well as the value of
the land ; grouping the states having the
greatest number of manufacturing industries ,
showing that in these .states labor is better
paid and the farmers more prosperous.
"I have lived long enough in the west , "
said Mr. Dorsoy , "to see the western portion
of our continent clinngo iron n region wholly
given over to the production of wheat and
grain to states with , diversified Industries ;
towns that have heretofore been distributive
points for enstcru ntanufncturers. changed
into centers of productive industry and dis-
naces , mills , foctorie'aand workshops. First
cmno the cultivators of tLo earth , whoso
business it is to feed the many ; next
cnmo these whose occupation it is to clothe
such workmen and their fumillo and to shel
ter the"m ; then comes the manufacturers of
implements of all sorts , and as n consequence
quence of this diversification como improved
homes for the people , ( schools , churches , and
every instrument of a higher civilization.
There are hundreds of growing young cities
throughout the west whoso enterprising people
plo nro to-day offering to nny firm or corpora
tion that will establish a manufacturing
plant within the borders both lands and
money ns n donation , ' thus to encourage the
dovelopmo t of manufacturing industries.
The representatives of these people arc asked
to support a measure In this congress that
will injure , if not break down , the industries
that we of the woet arc striving to build up ,
I now say to thos'o enterprising citizens ,
cither stop trying to build up your cities or
vote down the party that will bring forth
such n measure ns tbo bill under considera
tion. "
Then Mr. Dorsoy answered the charge that
agricultural progress nnd development wns
greater under a" low thnn a high tnriff ,
showing by statistics the increase in number
nnd values of horses , mules , cattle , sheep and
swine , showing a gain of over 100 per cent
from 1870 to the present ; also the increase
in number and value of farms. The depreci
ation that has takenplaco In free trade Eng
land in agricultural lands nnd the price of
labor , etc. , wore pointed out ; the condition of
the agriculturists in England compared
with these in this , country , which , ho said ,
could not bo answered by the advocates of
the Mills bill. Ho also showed that the passage -
sago of this bill would not benefit the con-
'sumer of manufactured articles upon which
the tariff is reduced , but is wholly in the in
terest of the manufacturer and importer ;
how very little the tariff affects the prices of
manufactured articles in common use , and
the benefit directly the farmers of the coun
try derive from n protective tnriff. Ho showed
further the indirect injury resulting to farm
ers from the closing up of manufacturing in
dustries and driving to the cultivation of the
soil so many thousands of laborers now en
gaged in the factories.
Mr. Dorsoy closed by saying : "Wo nil
agree upon these propositions , namely : That
the surplus should bo reduced and our
revenue laws revised , but that thcso ques
tions should bo dealt with in n business like
manner and that these things should bo done
which nro for the best interest of the coun
try ; that wo should bo guided by the experi
ence of the past whfch bus so plainly marked
out our course , turning from tno seductive
pleadings of the theorists nnd following the
advice of the practical and successful busi
ness man of the coijntry. In my judgment It
is the duty of the president to at once expend
the surplus now in tno treasury by purchas
ing and retiring our bonds. Then congress
should authorize th'o-disburscmcnt of the
? 100,000,000 of gold now in the treasury , held
for the redemption of the legal tender notes.
By using the surplus and the $100,000,000 of
gold , wo could 'pay off f3M,000,000 ) of
our obligations. To prevent such ac
cumulations in the future wo should
have a fair , just and equitable revision of our
revenue laws , which should bo done after
careful invcstlgatlqu and patient hearing of
nil the interests nft > 'tod by the proposed
changes. The prluciplo of protection to the
interests that have been developed in this
count ry should never bo forgotten. If wo could
place lumber , coal aud salt on the frco list
nnd reduce the duty pu sugar nnd molasses
so that the revenue arising therefrom shall
not.oxcecd § 10,000,000 per annum , and use a
portion of that sum ! necessary to encourage
sugar growing in the-country , the revenues
would bo reduced to the extent required and
the people of the country liciiullttcd nnd no
Industry injured. This country is not ready
to take the first stop In the direction of frco
trade ; it will make glad the hearts of these
who for the past thirty vcars have been
working for the 'markets of the great re
public. "
To-day's scenes in the senate will go into
history as the most exciting and acrimonious
that have over taken place in that august
body. The combat of words between Sena
tors Ingalls nnd'iVoorhces opened rather
quietly , but at the end of four hours closed
amid incidents of the most intense animation.
Senator Ingalls , in replying to the speech de
livered last , weelc by Senator Voorhcos. set n
trap for his adversary and succeeded In
catching him in the most perfect manner. In
opening his remarks Mr. Ingnlls referred to
the part the senator from ludlara took in
the war , and charged him with Icing a copper
head , a butternut and an artlvpf < artlclpnt.tln
tbo Kn'jjbir. of i > Q&.dxn Uirc' scii all of.
the Infamies of that organisation. Ho wn <
Just enough personal to make the hooslcr
senator flinch and squirm under the lash , so
that when ho rose to reply to the senator
from Kansas ho completely lott his balance
nnd opened up n personal tirade , which
licensed Mr. Ingnlls to do the exact thing ho
desired. Mr. voorhces. In nn abusive way ,
charged Ingnlls with unfounded nnd malicious
nsscrtlons , nnd declnrcd that the truth wns
not in him to the charge that ho wns n mem
ber of the Knights of the Golden Circle , nnd
hnd conspired to not only nsslst the south In
rebellion but to prostrnto the federal orga
nization In the north. Mr. Voorliccs repeated
time nnd again that ho had gene before the
people of Indiana in elections , when thcso
sntno things had been charged against him ,
and hnd every tlmo como out vindicated. Ho
kept ringing the chnrgcs on having voted
pensions for soldiers nnd with having been
the soldier's friend.
When Mr. IngaUs arose to reply to the
passionate nnd hasty personal ussnult of Mr.
Voorhecs , It was observed that the latter
Instantly bccamo extremely nervous. It
dawned upon him nt that moment that ho
had made n fatal error and that his political
doom wat about to bo scaled , for ho saw the
senator from Kansas take from his desk n
largo envelope , out of which ho drew official
documents , manuscripts and records. Thcso
wore all facts which Mr. Ingalls hud hold in
reserve like n cannon loaded with broken
glass , rusty nails and slugs , and when ho
began his fusillade it was n pity to behold ,
Ho first drew an autograph letter upon Veer
hecs , In which the latter In rec
ommending n friend for an appointment
to a brigadier generalship in the
confederate nrmy , expressed his full sympa
thy with secession and the war of the south.
Following this. Mr. Ingalls for thrco-quarters
of an hour produced unanswerable proof of
Voorhecs1 connection with the Knights of
the Golden Circle , the Sons of Liberty , and
the leading traitors of the north , nnd showed
that in his law office wcro stored rituals of
the Knights of the Golden Circle , corre
spondence with the loading officers of that
organization in the country , its conspirators
in Canada and the political night riders of
the period.
Voorhees1 anger was unbounded. Ho grow
pale , his volco trembled , and ho shouted
across the chamber epithets and such words
ns"Llur , " "False. " Base , " "Unfounded , "
till Senators Beck , Cockrell , Butler nnd
others aboil b him moved up nnd begged him
to desist. The scene at this time exceeded
description. The overflown galleries broke
into uproarious applause at Intervals , when
the chair threatened to have all arrested who
did not keep quiet , and then the immense
audience lapsed Into a quietude so perfect
that ono could hear himself breathe ; n mo
ment more and the audience would lese its
presence of mind nnd everything would bo
confusion again over some scoring remark
from the Kansas senator.
Finally the climax was capped by Mr. In
galls when ho retorted to an insolent remark
from Voorhecs by saying : "Did not the
soldiers of Indiana threaten to hang you on a
train with the boll rope between Terre Haute
nnd Grcencastlol" *
Quick as n flash Voorhecs sprang to his
feet and in the most dramatic manner rushed
forward , pointing his linger directly at Rep
resentative Johnson of Indiana , who sat im
mediately behind Senator Ingalls , nnd ex
claimed : "I hurl back in the teeth of the
scoundrel , villain nnd dirty dog who sits behind -
hind you the lies ho hns put in 3'our moxith. "
Instead of applause there were hisses from
the galleries which swelled into n storm.
Further on , In trying to explain the cvldenco
produced by Mr. Ingalls of the connection of
Voorhecs with tbo Knights of the Golden
Circle nnd the plots in Indiana to destroy the
organization , the latter said that they were
the result of n political Job put up on him by
his enemies , nt which explanation thcro wcro
jeers and hisses. Every effort to explain by
the senator from Indiana was a miserable
.fay .rflwuL-amounted to'uothiiig short o an
apologyp-which made his colleagues hang
their heads In shame.
After the disgusting interruptions hnd pro
gressed for some time , Senator Ingalls , turn
ing to the senator from Indiana , exclaimed :
"If this was n police court the gentleman
f rom Indiana would bo sentenced to the rock
pile for being drunk anil disorderly. "
The remark created n sensation and
directed every eye towards the senator nt
which It wns mado. The result of the
scrutiny was not Inclined to leave an impres
sion in the minds of these present compli
mentary to Mr. Voorhees. There were many
who said that ho was laboring under some
thing more than the excitement of the hour.
If Senator Voorhees has any aspirations to
the presidential or vice presidential nomina
tion , or any ambition to further political
honors , ho may as well banish them from his
mind after the proceedings of to-day. Ho
made a pitiable spectacle of himself , while
the senator from Kansas disclosed a record
of the senator from Indiana which makes
him vulnerable nnd open to any kind of
political attacks.MISCELLANEOUS.

The Mystery Still Unsolved.
COI.OHADO SrniNos , Colo. , May ! . [ Special
Telegram to the BEE. ] The coroner this af
ternoon empanelled n Jury nt Mnnttou to hold
nn inquest over the remains of Mrs. Kearney
nnd her seven-year-old grandson , Jean Hnnd.
The only witness that testified was Miss Nol-
Ho Ellsworth , tlio youngest daughter of Mrs.
Kearney and the aunt of Jean Hnnd. Her
testimony did not elicit nny thing additional
to that already reported. She states that hctt
nunt had no money or valuables nbout the
house and that she did not believe the deed
was committed for robbery. The Jury dlif
not go Into anything of n family nature and *
the inquest was only hold to determine the ,
exact cause of death. The session was ot
short duration nnd the Jury returned n ver
dict to the effect that thuldcccased came to
their death from the blows of n hatchet in the
hands of n party or parties unknown.
An effort Is being made to Induce the county
officials to offer n reward for the perpetrators
of the awful deed. Who committed the crlmo
Is the mystery which now confronts the offi
cials. Wcro these defenseless people murdcrcoV
for their money or owns there osomo over
powering motive which induced the mur
derer to commit the butchery ? If money
merely was the object , why was the bjy
killed first ! The house had the nppcarnnci
of having been ransacked , but It Is thought
that the old lady had but little money or
valuables in the houso. Vague hluts nro
thrown out that tbo motive for the crime
may bo found in the family Itself. Between
the Hands and Kearneys there has alwayft
been a bitter feud , which was the outgrowta
of a sudden dcntli under suspicious circum
stances in this city seven years ngo. It id
stated that the boy would have como into a
fortune on reaching his majority. It is certainly - ,
tainly ono of the most peculiar crimes ever
committed in Colorado , and brings to light
many things almost forgotten in connection , '
with these people.
The father of Iho murdered boy died la
this city somo.years ngo , suddenly from ail"
overdose of morphine , although it was be *
1 loved by many that ho committed suicide ,
nnd even darker suspicions wcro entertained.
His wife was a most beautiful woman , and Is ;
to-day studying to appear on the operatW'
stage in New York. Fred Hand's father
was Immensely wealthy , and from the day of
his son's death until his own , which occurred
nbout two years ago , there existed n fouct
between the Hand nnd Kearney families. '
When the old mnn Hnnd died ho loft a great
part of his fortune to thq murdered boy , but ;
loft it In care of a Philadelphia trust com
pany , and only a small allowance hns been
given Mrs. Kearney annually for the sup
port of the child. Now it appears that
at the time of the murder thcro was a third-
party In the house with her and the boy.
That this person , whoever and whatever ho
wa ? , committed the crime thcro can bo no
doubt. Who was ho Is the question. There
were three plates on the table and their nec
essary accompaniments , nnd whoever th
murderer is was the visitor for whom tl' '
third plato was set.
All appearances indicate that this visitor
went to tno house for the purpose of mur
der ; that ho first struck the bov n blow on
the head with a hatchet in the houso. Mrs.
Kearney rushed to the assistance of the boy ,
who had gene struggling out of the door , ana
as she went out pulled the door to and it
locked Itself on the Inside by a spring look.
She then rushed for safety to the stable and
the murderer made an exit from the house
by means of a window and arrived at the
stable. Thcro is every indication to show
that Mrs. Kearney closed the door nnd had
time to drive u nail on the Inside to hold it
before the murderer got there nnd that ua1
spite of the nail and her own efforts to hold
the door the villain pushed it open
nnd brained her in the corner where
he hnd crowded her , nnd that tie
then returned to the house whcro thoboyhad
fallen unconscious at the door , nnd if not
dead dispatched him , carried him to tno
the stable and threw him into the box as ho
was found. The fact Is evident that the vis
itor was n friend of the family or some ono
who could claim some intimacy with him.
It is said that the fortune loft the boy is
nearly ono million dollars , nnd that there are
parties who would bo interested in his death
to the amount of two-thirds of that sum.
