Congressman Melklejohn , In discussing the Coxey movement , said : "The right to peaceably assemble and petition the govern ment Is sacredly guaranteed to every Ameri can citizen by the constitution of the land , but I believe that If those who are march ing toward the capital are the unemployed worklngmen of the land , that If It bo a crusade - sade of labor seeking work. It Is unwise , unnecessary and will bo unavailing In securing the relief sought employment. The avenues of the wageworkers have been closed by the threatened destruction of a policy which has protected the handiwork ot our breadwinners from the products of foreign labor. The need of the hour Is not so much an Increase of the currency to secure the employment of labor , but the operation of capital already Invested , which has become unproductive through uncertainty and the attempt to supplant business experience with theories of tariff doctors. The patient would become convalescent under a change of physician. The employment of labor , the revival of Industries , the withdrawal ot the currency from the congested centers for circulation and a return to Individual and national prosperity can bo accomplished through the exercise of that franchise granted to every American citizen the bal lot. Every vote for the protection of Amer ican Industries Is a ballot for the enthrone ment of American labor and a berth for an American citizen. " ALL QUIKT IN TUB SKNATE.

Illinois Democrat * Mttrlf3 to Iteptnllnto Mil I'lnnnflal VO\TH. | WASHINGTON , May ! ; A ser'ous struggle will , It Is said , take place In the Illinois democratic convention wlin ( It meets at Springfield June 27 between the silver and anti-silver men. An effort Is to be made by the friends of President Cleveland to se cure an endorsement of his financial policy and on that Issue the party may be squarely divided. The discussion among the Illinois democrats In Washington on this subject has already been very earnest , and gives an Intimation of how Intense the flglit will bo when the final test comes. Senator Palmer , Comptroller of the Currency Eckels and First Assistant Postmaster General Jones will , It Is said. Insist on asking for the unqualified endorsement of Mr. Clove- land's financial policy. They will carry from Washington a ready-made money plank to be Inserted In the state platform and will bo met with the response of the silver men , of whom Flthlan Lane , Williams and Mc Donald are the leaders. Mr. Flthlan , In a speech accepting the congressional nomina tion a few days ago at Oreenup , repudiated President Cleveland's views on the money question , and Mr. Lane , another southern Illinois member , has asserted that the presi dent ought to be Impeached for his course. Congressman Forman. who represents Colonel Morrison's old district , Is likely to break with his southern Illinois friends when the question comes up. He voted for uncon- dltlona repeal when the Sherman bill came up , and Is known as an administration man. The president looks to the Chicago demo crats to come to his rescue In this fight and prevent the Illinois democracy from being committed to free silver.

Mr. Bolssevaln of Holland .representing the holders of the Union Pacific securities In that country , first addressed the commit tee. The Interests bo represented believed that prompt action by congress was neces sary and Imperative so that the reorganiza tion would not have to wait too long before beginning Its work. Ho could not endorse the proposition In the attorney general's bill concerning the Hen proposed be given to the government and said that he thought the branches should be left out of such lien. Mr. Bolssevnln said ho represented between $30,000,000 and $40,000,000 of the company's securities. Mr. Morowetz , one of the counsel for the reorganization committee , said the counsel for the committee were not entirely satisfied with all the provisions of the bill submitted by the attorney general. One of those provi sions was one making the court of appeals of the District of Columbia , the tribunal fur the settlement of litigation arising as a possible result of the proposed legislation. Morowetz submitted the form of a bill which had been prepared by the reorganization committee and which he said was Identical with the attorney general's bill with the exception of section 8 , which provides In detail for the manner In which foreclosure proceedings shall be taken In case of default In respect to any obligation or condition for which any Hen now exists In favor of the United States upon any property of the com pany. Following Mr. Morowetz , the committee heard statements from a number of the members of the reorganization committee and counsel , during which the history of the steps taken to bring about the reorganization was gone over. There seemed to exist In their minds the belief that the extending of the government Hen over the entire sys tem of the Union Pacific , as proposed , would prove a serious obstacle to the carrying out of the plan of reorganization. The com- mltteo adjourned until tomorrow , when coun sel for the Central Pacific will appear. OK.nOCKA.TIO SK.VATOIIS IMl'ATIKNT. Talk of Closure on the Turin I1I11 llclnc Dlbcussrd. WASHINGTON , May 1. That the rank and file of the democratic party In the sen ate Is becoming Impatient at the delay In the consideration of the tariff bill was shown yesterday by the circulation of a declaration In favor of closure of debate. The paper was prepared by Senator George and was quietly circulated during the after- noon.bolng handed only to the most influential senators. It was not signed by all to whom is was presented , some of the senators ex pressing the opinion that It was too early to attempt a closure and others declining on principle. The paper recites that It has become apparent that tlje republican op ponents of the tariff are determined to re sort to filibustering to prevent the proper consideration and passage of the bill , and commits the signers to a simple declaration In favor of closure. It makes no specifica tion as to how the change shall be brought about , whether through the presiding officer or the committee on rules , leaving that point , as well as that as to whether It shall be a modified or an absolute closure , to be decided later. It does not appear that the call will be pressed for the time being , but it Is to bo handed around quietly as opportunity pre sents , so as to have the democratic side pre pared for the change If undertaken and also to have senators committed to It as far as possible. Senator Harris said that he Is not yet prepared to announeo any change of hours for the dally sessions , but that he might have an announcement In that direction to make before many days.
