When the senate today took up the reso
lution the agreement made l.nl week tha :
the final vote upon It should bp Mkcn befors
adjournment toJay was changed In order
that all bcnators might have an opportunity
to speak. Tomorrow's session will begin at
10 a. in. , and after 2 p. in. the speeches will
be confined to fifteen minutes each.
Today's scsslcn continued for more than
six hours , the resolution being under dla
cti slon through pr-ictlcally > thc outlrc time.
The speeches In support of the resolution
wore dt'llvorcd by Mr , IXinlel ( Va. ) . Mr.
Ldnlsay ( Ky. ) , Mr. Smith ( N. J. ) .and Mr.
Cockroll ( Mo. ) , IMr. Daniel concluding the

resolution. While the speeches for the moat

DAXHL CLOSES ins SPEECH.
After this agreement had been rcnchel
Mr. Daniel resumed his speech begun lasi
evening. Ho made a legal argument in
support of the pending resolution , holding
that the law never contemplated giving the
BJMjrnm-Mit creditor the option of thu kind
of money ho win to Iho paid. The creditor
would naturally pick that dollar which wns
the most \aluahlo to him , but If he did not
Know which ho would receive ho would o

lar' Ho enumerated the great men who
supported the resolution In 1878 , beginning
v , Ith the dlatlnguli heil author Stanley Ma--
thcvva , nnd concluding with the preaen :
president of the United States , .
He thought , thorcfoie , the attacks upon
the honorable motives of the supporters or
the resolution now were Ill-timed and un-
wirrantf'd. He closed with a tribute to the
Mr Lodge followed Mr. Daniel He said
he- had nlwajs bten an International bl-
metalllst , ani was one now He had done
everything In h s po cr to promote an in-
teinatlrml agreement , > a ho believed that
would do much to simplify the quc&tlon. He
was ci natralne I to believe , however , aftet
hearing the eloquent statci.ient of the sena
tor from Colorado ( \Volcott ) , that the at-
tcnirt to secure an International bimetallic
agreement 1-ad filled , temporarily , at Vast
He held therefore , that the country was
confronted with two prepositions , one of
wh'ch ' it would have to acctpt Hither the
t-Ahtliig gold standard must bo i-ialntalnci.
or the country must authorize fice sliver
' 1 ho latter alternative means , said ho the
disappe- lance of gold from circulation , anJ
the placing of the country upon a stive-
basis It has ccmo no.v to a contest'between '
the two standards. Mr. todie ; declared
that any change on the inonctaiy st.imlan ;
would f II with dire icsults upon the masses
of the people. The adoption of the resolu
tion mil the cnfoiccmont ot Its provisions ,
ho thought , would be a policy fraught with
gieat danger to the country and to the
LINDSAY WILL SUPPORT IT.
Mr Lindsay ( dem , Ky. ) follo.vcd In n set
speech In au.i'ort of the resolution. He
declared hluwelf In favor of having all money
o ; the United S'atcs , nliuthcr coin or i-ipei ,
equal to the best money of the worll , anil
"ho thought It unfoiUnate that the ndvo-
catcs of s.uid money should v.ive acropteJ
the Issue tuidci-od them bj the resolution ,
not only with the consciousness that they
were wrong , but also with a certainty that
they would bo defeated. Congress has the
right to colfi both gold nnd blhor , and In
doing so violates no contract "
Mr Llnd.saj said lUat consideration of the
subject wnb useless \.asto of time. lie
thought theie was no moie icason for Us
cc'ns'deratlon at this time than for t'ae con
sideration of the declaration of Independ
ence. Ho thought IKCIC of the force and ef-
i'ct nf this resolution had been lest dur-
inj the last twenty yearh. He oald , how
ever , he wanted to oiotcat against the ntate-
mcnt tl-U lad been made to t'.e effect that
nil tliojo who wou'd vote for this resolution
would by their votes endorse the views of
all wtto supported H. Mr. Lindsay hold
tint It was not bad faith on the pait of the
povciii'iiont to pay obligations .n any money
authorl/od by law.
Mr. Aldrlch asked A\bother the country
cc'jld ' commence frco colna 50 anl go to a
silver basis \\lthou1 dciopitl n of the right"
01 inoi.irmieoi private creditor.
"H might bo. unwise , " nnllcd .Mr. Llnlrov.
"but the question prcfentcd is one of policy ,
aot of good faith. A law piiised In a con
stitutional wy , and so maintained , alwaj- !
iletc.-mined thu question of good 3r bid
"Would It bo In wool faith. " por.tstcd Mr.
Aldileh , "to nny the govcninient'a obllg'i-
tlons In a dopioriated curreiuy ? "
"Mr. Lindsay t-aouglit the question had

otho reflolutliM had made n fal'e ls > sue
In dideavorlnv ? to nuKe this resolution an
HOUND TO PAY OUT IIHST MONIJY.
In a colloquy iietwecn Mr. Llnds-iy and Mr.
Caffery ( dcm , I i ) the Utter declared
"The Koveinment la morally bound to pay
Ita obligations In thn best money. If gold
should dep.-eel-ite , or silver should exceed it
In vilur , Itotilil be a breach of public
faith to o-iy oir cbllRatlona In gold. "
In icply to Mr. Lindsay's statement that
Iho opjucnts of the resolution ha 1 forced
the fight. Mr Aldrlch said"The bi-mtor
from Kentucky Is under n mlaappieheiialon
Wo did not bring thli resolution before the
oenato. It was brcusht here by Mr. Vest
onu nf our distinguished friends , after It
had been Introduced by the senator from
Colorado ( Teller ) . Three jcais ago It wan
Introduced In the boiiso by W. J. llryan ,
the great leader of the democratic jiaitj ,
and the discipline of > nur party Is ao strong
and excellent that oven the senator from
Kentucky Is now found fighting under Mr.
Uiyan'j leadership. "
"Tho senator from Hhodn Island had bet-
tur look after his own leadership. " replied
Mr Llndsiy. "and not trouble himself about
ml u. "
' 1 don't cxpnct , " retorted Mr. Aldrlch ,
"that the senator from Kentucky will over
vote under my U-adoishlp Discipline on
that bide of the chamber la too strong for
him over to never himself from the demo
cratic party. I whh that party loyalty
were ns strong on this aide of the chamber. "
Mr. Wolcc.tt Ui-p. Cole ) was on his foot
In an instant. "Tho Henatoi from Ilhodo
Island , " said ho tartly , "oxpiesses the wish
that party discipline were mrongor on this
aldo of the clumber. I wish no. too. and
1 wish that fccmitors on this aldo of tbo
chamber would not go off the tenets of the
republican party at the behest nf an Indian
apolis convention , as EQUIP of them have
Mr. Lindsay concluded his f.p"h by uaj-
Ilig that ho would vote In accordance with
his Etntemonlrt. He maintained that tbu
qiieatto.-i presented was onn simply of law
nnd not In any prnen ot morals. IIo held
that If condition.- ) could BO cliangu na to
uork hardships to the government creditors
that was n misfortune' but not a violation
ot the public faith
vioL\Tig PuiJLio MORALITY
Mr Oafforj ( dem , La ) delivered nn ox-
ti'Ddcd speech In opposition to thu resoHi-
lion. If thU lesolutlon means what hr.a
been attributed to It. " said ha , "It U clearly
a violation of pubMc moiallty , If 1 have
any conception ot what public morality la. "
"Tho men behind this resolution , " declared
Mr Caffery vehemently , "arc not playing
not expending all this wind for nothing. 1
bcllevo they hope to bring about free coin
age through executive action , knowing that
that Is Impossible by congressional action "
Mr. Smltn ( dcm . N. J. ) followed Mr Oaf.
fery. lleoald the adoption erf the resiltitlon
was cither misunderstood , or the debate hail
taken auclt a wlJo range a to submerge the
question. He naw no necessity for the reso
lution. Ho had. Indeed , Ril | > p ° sed that Mr
Aldrlch was responsible for the resolution
for purposes of hln own
Mr. Aldrlch disclaimed all responsibility
for the resolution , nnd was promptly ac-
Continuing Mr. Smith announced his In
teiitlon of voting for the resolution on the
giound that It was not a new iclaratlon
In doing this ho would not , however , sur
render hU Individual vlewa on the free
colnago of silver. On this latter subject he
had his views -which vveio that It would bo
dlfllcult to maintain free coinage at the pres
"Then , " said Mr. Aldrlch , "the resolution
does not moan the restoration o ? frco cola-
age ? "
"Not ns n legal proposition , I ntn as
sured , " Mr , Smith replied. He oxpro&'od
the opinion that the free silver advocates
vvcro honcdt citizens , nnd that the govern
ment would bo safe 1n their hands It placed
thuio by the vote of the lOuntiy.
Mr. Cockrcll supported the resolution. Ho
discussed the question nt some length , tak
ing up and defining various financial enact
ments slnco 1S70 to show that United States
bonds wore practically declared to be paya
ble In silver. Ho did not think the > re could
be any question that the bands of the United
States should bo paid In standard silver at
the option of the government , that would
bo nn honest , an equitable payment , which
would satisfy the consciences of all the people
ple , and every moral law. The Teller rcu-
olutlon means that to restore the act of
1SS7 a free coinage act would not bo In
derogation , of the rlghu ot the public crel-
Itor. He thought that as gold and standard
silver dollars were standard money and not
redeemabletheio would be , s much sens ?
In talking of maintaining the parity of gold
with silver ns silver with gold. No nation
of the world hss over yielded the option ot
pa > lng Its obligation , In Us standard tnonoy ,
said Mr Cockrcll. The opponents of the
i evolution were working In the Interests or
the bankers of the world.
LONGS FOR OLD HICKORY.
"Oh , that wo had In the White House nn
Andrew Jackson ! " cried Mr. Ccckrell , "that
wu intgha bay to those bankers , 'liy the
oteinal , you shall take the standard silver
ilollais In payment for the obligations you
held ' That would settle this question vcrj
M. Cockrcll. In the course ot hla remarks ,
produced a. $20 gold piece and Inquired
whether nny republican desired to give him
toiit forty standard silver dollars.
This proposition brought out an Interesting
colloquy between Mr. Cockrell on one side
and Messrs. Aldrlch , Pomker and Palrlmnks
on the other concerning the value of silver
coins In Mexico. Mr. Coskrell said that n
coin's legal tender quality left it the mo-
nu.it It left the territorial limits of the gov
ernment which colnc-d It.
M.KoraKer asked If It were not true that
with ono of our silver dollars two Mexican
doll.ua could not bo purchased In Mexico ?
Mt. Cockrcll replied that that might bo
tint , but that was because the stadard silver
dollar was equal to a gold dollar Our sil
ver dollar was not , he &aid , legal tender In
Mexico , the standard dollai being exchangc-
uhlj in Mexico for two dollars because these
thiough whoso hands It passed were able
tu use It in the United States.
Ho maintained that value to gold nnd sll-
Mf money was given to It by la\v , and as
sorted that If gold were demonetised by the
commeiclal nations ol the world it would
it'Stantly depreciate. He maintained 'that '
the United States was great and powerful
e'nojgh to coin silver independently and
maintain Us value. Ho quoted a speech of
Mr. Allison , In which the latter l.ad said the
value in gold nnd silver was conferred by
legislation , and Mr. Cockrell said that was
thn csscncu of the whole question.
The senatu at the conclusion of Mr. Cock-
rcll'a speech adjourned , at 6 05 p. in. , on
motion of Mi. Vest , until 10 a. m , tomorrow.

WASHINGTON , Jan. 27. The ficnltccom -
mlttco en Interstate commerce hold its first
executive meeting today for the considera
tion ot the antl-scilplng bill. The hearings
were brought to a close and the committee
decided to exert every effort to reach a vole
at a meeting to bo held n week from today.
The opponents of the bill did ciot evince a
disposition to postpone the vote longer thin
necesrury to present their views and some
of them ejtpretscd. the opinion that the vote
would not under any circumstances be de
ferred longer than two weeks. There was
also a general agioomccit to accept the house
bill if5 the basis ot future consideration.
Ibis bill was originally n copy ot theen -
ate bill , but It was amended In committee
In particulars which meet with the
approval of the senate committee. At to
day's meeting several amendments additional
to those made by the house committee iverc
suggested. Among these wns ono compelling
the rallrond companies to redeem the un
used portions of tickets at a rate proportionate
tionate to the cost of the cntlro ticket ; an
other mitigating the penalties Imposed for
violation of the law and still another con
solidating the bill with the 1)111 Introduced
by Senator Cullom last week for the Im
provement of the status of the Interstate
Commerce comm'sslon. ' It wns stated that
other amendments still would bo presented
and the Intlmatlcn was given out that one
of these might provide that passes should
be in.-vJo good to the boaicr ,
The discussion was along the lines Indi
cated by those suggestions , but there was
not n sulllclcntly general expic.ilon of
opinion to form n definite Idea of what the
vote would bo. The- opponents of the bill
count upon getting live votes for their propo
sition to coisolldato tbo antl-scalping with
the commission bill , nnd they are even
hopeful of seeming the sixth vote , which
would eairy it. In case- the motion should
piovail , the effect would bo equivalent tea
a postponement , as some time would be
necessary to consider the commis
sion bill. During the course of
the meeting today. Senator Hiking of
West Virginia , who has been considered
an avowed advocate of the atUi-scalplng bill ,
expressed himself as somewhat doubtful as
to Its expcdleicj He said that while man }
of the lallroada were evidently favorable In
a degree to It , there were only two , the New-
New York ContrU and the I'eDiiPjlvanla tail-
icad , which were pressing It with apparent
zeal. H said In view of this fact he had
leached the conclusion that the n.ajorlty ot
the lines were at best Indiffcreuit , while no
thought that some of them were actually op
posed to It.
