cuss the last message on the currency ques-

his alternatIve propositIon to congress had
construed the bond Issues under the present -
ont law to bo silver bonds and proposed a
premium en gold. The 11resldenl contracted
to Issue gold bonds , and gold bonds were
10methlng entirely unknown to existing law.

Imrtment , " It was nevertheless responsible

but was Interrupted by a point ot no quorum

fr0 At the conclusion ot Senator Allen's remarks -
marks , Senator Morgan made a protest
against the proceedings In the senate by him-
self . and cole ue , Mr. Pugh characterizing
the speech as "a clear abuse or the parla-
mentary law In Ilsregarll or the urgent ne-
cessites or the 11blc service all an assault
upon the rights or Alabama as . a state or the I
union and upon the eh"arcter ot our government -
mont and people " They called attention to
the fact that the two days' speeCD was made
white an appropriation bill was under consideration -
oration . and said that the speech was not
V relevant Important or germane. They said
. It vas impossIble to vote upon the questions
p raised by 11 Allen . and added :

cording to Its pleasure. nor can an investigation -
ton be fully made which has for its object
snob a determInation as to the rights of a

They say the fact that seats In the house
ot representatIves arp being contested should
prevent the aenate from any Interference In
the mater under the commonet Instincts
ot propriety and assert Senator Allen's
charges are made UIIOI the hearsay evidence
ot men who expect the reward ot office .
"They supply him " the protest continues .
"with affidavIts . letters all notes and ho

matc peculariies may favor or combat the

by - suggesLing . In many instances supplementary -
mentary sanitary 11recautons ; also by Indl-
eating to what parts ot the country invalIds
and health seekers may be sent to find cii-

viation or cure ot their particular 03ses.
The hearty co-operation of the varIous

WASHINGTON . Feb. 12.-Secretary Holte
Smith today made Public the twenty-sixth
annual report ot the Board ot Indian Com-
missioners. Regarding the purchase ot sup-
plies for the Indians the report says prices
were surprisingly low. Last spring the con-
tract. busIness was divided between New York 1
and Chicago. The commissioners cannot see
that , anythlng was gained by this arrangement - I
mont and say the division ot the work involves - ,
volves a consIderable Increase In expense.
"Tho graphic picture drawn by Senator ,
Dawes of the * , tate ot affairs In the territory -
tory occupied by the five civilized tribes

lalon , These Indians have so oren been
held up as models ot civilization . conducting
a wlso seU-government. supporting their own
schools and courto ot justice and enjoying all
the comforts or home life . that It was sir-
prlsln to hear that the courts and legislative
bodies are ulerly corrupt : that the public
school system Ie PrImitive afll inefficient ;
that the lands belonging to the

Whie the house was proceeding with

plause from the republican side . and then
from the whole : 11011CC as Mr. Wilson ot I
Washington , long I PoPular ( and witty memo
bar ot the house and recently elevated to the
selnte , came on the floor. He was stIr- I
rounded by his old associates and the house 1
business was temporarily suspended by the I
heartiness or the reception accorded him.
The houe then resumel consideraton 01
the legislative , JudicIal ant executive np-
proprlton bill . 1lr. Plcltler or South Da-
Itot1 offered a subbtlute for the 11rovlslon of
the bill relating to the working force or the
pensIon office. The substtute proposed the
same force or omcers antI clerks as at Present -
ent Instead or the reduced force Proposed by
the appropriation. ( : lr , 1lcltler said the IX. !
ecut\e authorites were afraid to resume : the
responsibIlity for discharging old solullor
clerks and were trying to place the responsl.
blty on conress.
Mr. 111ken ot Maine also spoke against
this "Inslduous plan : or ousting the old vet.
erans" and leaving them In their old age
like abandoned htilks .
: lr , Coombs or New York doremlel the
( ) lnslon item of the bi against criticism. lie
then branched oil Into a financial slleech.
fr. Band or Missouri and Mr. Snolgrlss of
Tennessee sought to interpose and the couu-
tel assertions became so warm that Mr.
Coombs appealed to the chair for protection.
Ho said congress had shut Its eyes to the
roconunendatlons ot the president. No won-
dot our credit was no longer as good abroad
as It was at home. No wonder our scuri-
ties were returln ,
"If you allow the country's credit to fail
before the world , " said Mr. Coounbs " \ will
cost untold millions ; It will bring 1 ruIn and
a destructIon exceeding that ot the rebelon , "
Mr. Snolgrass Interposed the point or
order that Mr. Coombs was malAnlng the
upper house or congress because a free silver
bill had today been reported to that body.
There was great contusion and laughter as
lr , Coombs excitedly demanded protection.
Another uproar arose when Mr. Van Voor-
hlo ot New York replied to Mr. Coombs. He
arraigned the administration for Its course
on the financial question. "I malto the point
that the gentleman Is out or order In crltlcls-

Mr. Coombs JoIned In the general laughter
and made no further rejoInder.
anl male . Dngham of Pennsylvania a member
ot the approprIation commlUee. said the crIt-
cism on the proposed reduction In pension
npproprlaUons was not justifled. as I was
based on plain business princIples. A wnrm
exchange occurred with Mn Baker or New
Hampshire when that gentleman spoke ot
the one-armed clerks at the pensIon office
who were expected to do as much as two-
"Why do you not put 't In the statute t a
one-armed clerk Is not to do as much as a
two-armed clerk ? " asked Mr. Blngharn.
"Decause God Atmlghty has put It In His
statute. " declared 11 Daker
Mr. Bingham said Mr. Pickier could not
show his devotion for the old soldiers In any
way whIch would not have his ( l3ingham's )
approval but he dd ! not believe the discharge
ot veterans was contemplated. The vote was
taken on Mr. Plckler's substitute and It was
defeated 69 to 132.
When the bill WM reported back to the
house the contest was resumed agaInst the
provision for annual clerks to congressmen
Mn . Docltery poInted out that the annual
clerks would cost $356.000 before the next
congress actually assembled. The IntensIty
at feelIng aroused by the struggle brought
out many humorous Incdent Mr. Do.
Armond ot Missouri crltclsed congressional
vultures. . Mr. Dalett resented the Impula-
tlon . and declare that Mr. DeArmond was
not a vulure , but a raven continually : croak-
lag . . "nevermore. " Mr. Dartett said his
fight In behalf ot clerks Involved nothing personal -
BonDI to hlmslt . ns be was serving In con- I
gress at n loss of his New York practice '
worth $25.000 annual ) ' .
Thereupon Mr. Caruth ot Kentucky created
much amusement by running up the aisle and
pleading that this abandoned law practice be
turned over to him. -
Mr. Dockery finally cut or the lively debate -
bate by moving the previous question . which
was ordered . A yea and nay vote was taken
on the nmendment for the annual clerks . and
It was dereated. Yeas , 08 : nays , 142.

WASHINGTON . Feb 12.
I Is new QuIte certain that 0. J. Icing ol
Omaha will be released rrom any complications
arising from his proposal for constructing the
public building 'at Kansas City . Mo The
Treasury department has decided that the
superstructure will be ot granite . and not ot
marble , This throws King out ot the case
as his bid was for Georgia mable , The reason -
son for the rejection of Gecrga ! marble was
because It was found that , being whiter In
shade than granite , It would b9 more IUS-
ceptble to dirt and would soon turn darken
on account or the sot and sloke arising from
the use of ser coal. The claim cr cor-
rosion however , has been urged against the
Georgia granite also by those interestd In
the western contractors and this has been re-
garded as so 1131pable a fault by the omc'ala
In the supervising archl ct's omce or the
Treasury department that I now seems likely
that the Georgia granite wIll also ho declined .
The Georgia ; member of congress who are In
Washington are greatly Incensed over the reports -
ports which were published that tile Georgia
marble was defective on account 'or Its ten-
Ilency to corrode In the event of the rejec-
ton ! ot Georgia granite It Is probable that
tle Treasury department will turn Its atten.
ton to the Georgia granite with a vIew to
accepting that , 'fhe attention or the 'i'reas-
ury department has been called to the fact
that the Omaha 1)0-stolilce building Is being
constructed oC Colorado granite . and that this
granite has always been round desirable and
serviceable so that the emclals are Incln ! ,
to look with favor upon the CcloradQ etone
The award of the contract for this work will .
ot course have to be delayed until the quea-
ton has been declde1 ! which kind of granite
shah be acceptetl. I Is probable that the
contract will have been placed before the
end cf the pescnt week 'File trouble arising
over Icing's b'el st-as that he claimed to han
asked $345.000 for the work , wIllie the lie-
partment say they found his b(1 : to bo
$255.000 , so that I the department hall decided -
clde1 that the Kansas City building should' '
be ot'Georgla marble ICing would eithEr have
had to accept the contract and lose $90.000
thereby or refuse the award antI give up the
