Ir. "nyne of New York said It seemed
hint ( nothing had been ler out or the bond

W. A. Stone or Pennsylvania saId he could
not see why republicans should not vote for
the resolution . although they were not to
blame for the bd management that hrought
about the difficulty. To refu3e to make the
bonds payable In gohl would be to spIte the
country. The president had ! twice appealed
to the patriotIsm or the republican party and
that appeal had never been made In vatn.
They shoull respond agaIn.
Mr. Hepburn or Iowa said the gentleman
tram Pennsylvania proposed to g bade un
tIle whole policy at his party that had always
pledged Itself to maIntain gold and silver at

reported to have said to the committee on
ways and means that Ir the gold proviso was '
put Into this issue or bonds ! It must go Into
every future Issue. "Do you propose to do
that ? " lie asked and there were cries of
"No. No "
After reading the plank of the last na-

he said : " : Ir. Speaitci'-i cnn Imagine that
your OWl heart has been \ armed many times I
by that rInging sentence " whereat there I
was great applause and Inuhtr.
After readIng the plank at the republican
platorm for bimetalism he declared that
there was no difference between moral and L
legal declarations ; there was not n debt of
the government that cOlld not honesty he I
paid In sliver.
DEMOCRACY OWES CLEVELAND NOTH-
Mr. Bryan or Nehraska made a halt hour

WAShINGTON Feb. H.-The entire dlplo-

Incident whmlchm orignated In putting our mm-

tile difficult mountain assemm lying between
the coast and time capital and do everything
necessary to secure him a comfortable trIp and
proper receptton. All tills was done tcr Mr.
Moonlight by Major li'ortumm of the Boliviams
army. In acknowledgeniemit of time kindness
received Mr. Moonllghmt addressed a letter to
time Bolivian minister of forc-Ign affairs requesting -
questing that if coimsistent with the views of
time government and time custom In like cases
Major Fortum be promoted to the rank of
comumnandant. All timis , It seems , was in Coil-
formity with custom and the Bolivian govern.
tent Immediately took pleasure in grantIng
Mr. Moonlight's request and the major was
dimly promoted. But when thus IncIdent came
to time notice of time State dejmmtrtmemmt Secretory -
tory Greelmam wrote tIme minIster that no matter -
ter imow usual such proceeding miglmt be in
Bolivia it was entirely contrary to section
1571 , revised statutes , whmicim in terms forbids -
bids any United States diplomnatic oillcer to
request any appolntmnent trod any fore'gmt no-
then. So imir , Moonligimt contssed ime hail overlooked -
looked tile Btatute , expressed his regret and
addressed a note to time ilohivtan , nhmmister of
foreign affairs explaining imis mistake and
asking that his former note ho regarded as
nullity , The correspondence , however , does
