, wasnington, Jan. 28. The Teller bond
resolution, declaring United States bonds
payable in standard silver dollars, passed
the senate by a vote of 47 to 32 at seven
o'clock tonight There was no demonstra
tion when the vote was announced. The
senate immediately thereafter adjourned
until Monday. Several-- amendments, pro
posed during the last hour, containing
provisions modifying or nullifying the sil
ver text of the original resolution, were
v Senator Stewart, of Nevada, began the
day's debate. He was followed by Sena
tors Cannon, - Jones, of Arkansas, White,
Wolcott, Chilton, Gray, Bacon, Tillman,
Warren, Butler and Rawlins in favor of
the resolution, and by Senators Fairbanks,
Foraker, Nelson, : Allison, Hawley, Gallin
ger, Elkins and ullom against it.
. Senator Wolcott, in his advocacy of the
resolution, asserted it had nothing to do
with the question of the bill for the un
limited coinage -of silver: "It" was . resolu-
Uon --which, tore -down the".l'egaf 'principle
edness. The people of the west might be
trusted with the ' national honor. They
never votea, never wouia vote, to pay a
national debt m any but the best money.
Senator Jones criticised thev position tak
en by Senator Allison. He thought the res
olution would squarely align -' those who
held various financial beliefs.
"I believe," he said, "that the people's
conviction upon this question of bimetal
lism is more firmly fixed than ever before.
Tbey are determined to restore silver to its
status before 1873 and we will do-all . we
can to accomplish this result. We shall
march in a solid phalanx, with shields
locked, down to tbe day of our doom in
our efforts for the restoration of silver,
and the republican cries that silver is
dead will fall upon deaf ears."
Senator Cannon said that if there was no
other reason for his supporting the reso
lution, he would vote for it "to serve no
tice UDon every, creditor of the United
States that he should live up to the con
tract he had entered into with the gov
eminent." . .
The debate closed with a speech by Sen
ator Aldrich. leader of the opposition. He
1 characterized the resolution as a
able. Ineffectual affair-'- saying, fits ad
mitted . purpose is ,to divide, distract and
defeat the Opponents of - free coinage. It
has no purpose except that. - We intend to
meet this issue courageously. WeJ are re
sponsible to the people that so "far as we
are able, we will maintain their, honor and
