The linance conitnitteo, which ha l.utm inRi.l-ririL' the bond bill that th HouHe had passed, reported stTiiMTiTHTK urovidinLT for the free coinage of silver, The substi T4.r...1 tiv tho committee is as follows:' "That from and after tho passag i.Mhm act the mints of the United States shall bo open t tho coinap ..f silver, ami there shall be touted dollars of the weight of grain niv. rf standard silver, nine-tenth linn, art provided by the act of Janu :irv IS.

Sec. J. That the Secretary of tho Treasury shall coin into standard silver dollars, as soon as practicable, according to tho provisions of sec tion I of this act, from tho silver bullion nurchased under authority of the act of July H, IS'JO, entitled, An act (hrectinir the purcnase oi silver bullion and the issue of Treas ury notes thereon, and for other pur poMos," that portion of said silver which represents tho seisruiorago or i.rol t to the government, to-wn, ine .lifTrnpft between the cost of the silver purchased under said act and iU eoiu&ge value, and said silver tnltira r cdinpil shall be used in end of the fourth year, and ih', after the end of the fifth year: and there after, in addition to the pum of if 110, there shall paid f I for each year's rurtuer delay of presentation. Mr. 1'rendcnt, to carry ont this aw after th'xe Bums of money have bfen depo?it-d in the postal money order otliceH i lit re is nothing to do but fr the Kecretary of the Treas ury to print the postal notes and send th m to the designated deposi tories of the United States. The note during the first year is worth 100; at the end of the first year it is worth -tio;;; at the end of the second year it m worth .IU( 10: that is to say, th interest is compounded; 10 cents is pid for one ytar'a interest on .', and so the interest is com pounded during tho five years $!)..'0 at the end of the third year; $12 00 at the end of the fourth year, and 10 at the end of thy fifth year. If tho interest had not been compound ed the amount would be $113 five times three at the end of the fifth year, but 1 per cent, has been added by way of compounding the interest, and at the end of five years the note is worth IH. Thereafter it is worth $1 for every year's delay of pre se station, and that $4 is 'J1, per cent, interest upon the $110. That runs until the holder of the note shall see lit to realize upon it. Mr. r.UTi.Kic. ill the Senator al ow me to ask him a question? Mr. ('HANDi.r.H. Certainly. Mr. Ut'TLEH. What kind of money do I understand the people are to pay for the postal notes? Mr. ChanlijEU. So far as I have read the bill already, they wouh pay in lawful money. Tho Senator vill heat the whole bill in a mo ment, and then I shall bo very hap py to have him ask me any other questions. I continue t'j read tho bill: Such note may bo issued with the name of tho depositor inserted, or it may bo issued in blank, as above de scribed, and any holder may after wards insert his name in tho blank space. Now I call the attention of the Senator from North Carolina to the next clause of tho bill, which reads: In case any deposit is made in gold coin, tho note may, if deposi tor so desires, bo made payable in irold coin as to tho dollars which may become due thereon This feature ot the system may or may not be adopted, as congress sees tit. but it seems to me that there is gold enough in this country to supply the needs of the Treasury if you will give every man who has $100 in gold, or who can obtain $100 in gold the privilege ot putting it into tho Treasury an J receiving one of these notes and receiving his gold back acain when the note becomes due. Mr. Butler.- If I understand the Senator's bill, it allows theso posta! notes to be paid for in "lawfu person vho DEMOCRACY YS. FREE SILVER.

Under this head will be presented communications competing for the cash prizes announced elsewhere for the best article on "Why the Free and Unlimited Coinage of Silver Cannot Be Obtained Through the Democratic Party." Scott's Hill, Jan. S.hj'OG. Your great paper, so widely read and so deservedly influential, desires brief but valid reasons, why the free and unlimited coinage of silver cannot be secured through the Democratic party. There is but one reason, and that is TUE UTTER HOSTILITY of the Democratic party to the free coinage, the compulsory coinage, or any coinage of silver whatever. Of this fact there are many proofs. The party declared in its last platform or the equality of gold and silver at the mints. No friend of silver asks for more than this. Let silver bo restored to its former equal ity with gold at the mints and the i DAMXIKO WRONII OB' THE CENTURY will be righted; the great battle ended; the commercial and mone tary value at once be made the same, (jive me a bright Raleigh child ten years of age to solve this mighty problem, which has crazed the lucid, brilliant leaders of Democracy. If 3711 trrains of pure silver are worth ment it declares for the free coinage of silver. Again bo prominent Democrat, except 8IBLXY AND EBYAN, has said that he would quit the party for silver's sake. Greater than sil ver, mightier than liberty, holief than home, this doubled faced mon ster of fraud, upon whose accursed altars they have at last laid their honor and their manhood. What other proof! A Northern and New England Democracy solid for eold; North Carolina Democrats making a LOUD CALL AND A LOW ANSWER for a silver convention; Hardin play ing a free silver fiddle with a gold bug bow: everywhere either avowed hostility, or that pitiable evasion of a doomed and dying party whose last will and testament bequeaths to financial andtariff reformja measure less legacy of hate and falsehood. How can a corpse aid this living and irrepressible measurer Its great rival went down to a glo rious death; with colors sailed to the masthead; with shotted guns thun dering defiance to the last; its mem ory made sacred and hallowed and beloved by the imperishable declara tion of its immortal leader., "I'd rather be right than to be Presi dent." The Democratic party goes down TO AN INFAMOUS DEATH; confident of their power that tbrj felt that they eould accomplish their purpoje, and immediately afterwards restore the country from the condi tion of panic to one of confidence. ibe account of this meeting is given in the New York papers of April 1S and May 1, and I have never Mn any of these statements denied or even questioned. Tbe .New lork Sun of April 'ZS, page 7, has an article headed "Bank ers meet Carlisle. It says: Secretary Carlisle decided yes terday morning to have a talk with the New York bankers." Tbe article then gives a liat o! the distinguished bank preidtuu Do were present, and says: The conference between tue ?ec- retarv and bank presidents lasted somewhat over an hour. Ine article tuen cives many de tails, and says: The Secretary went over tne cur rency laws of the country and stated thev were in bad hape and needed revision. The article then says: President Cleveland's advisers have told him that the only way to induce the Western and South wes tern Senators and Congressmen to consent to the repeal of the Sherman law is to demonstrate to their con stituents that they are losing money every day that this law is in opera tion. I call special attention that the article does not say that President Cleveland is engaged in this work but his advisers have told him, etc This purpose was sought to be ac complished bv repeated assertions which was printed all over the United States, that the repeal of the aner man law would immediately raise the price of cotton to 10 cent pound and wheat to $1 a bushel. The article then says: The missionary work in that di rection has been started by a num ber of the bankers in the solid com munities of the East. They are daily DR. THOMPSON AND THE CHURCH.

This assertion on the part of the New York bankers that they intend ed to do their utmost to pinch busi ness everywhere with the expecta tion of causing a money crisis, had its effect. The entire world saw that the money power of the United States was to be exerted in demone tizing silver, and that to accom plish this they were to immediately commence withdrawing money from the channels of trade. From that Calvin scorched him for three hours before burning the life out of him was the same kind of argument that brother Toruuemada used to con vince the thinkers of .Spain that thinking was wicked."
