to discriminate between the poor

I know of thousands of

pension of ten or fifteen dollars a
month, supporting a family, raising
and educating children, who are or
should be as meritorious in the
eyes of this country as the widow of
the moftt distinguished general in
our lato army. It is a species of
namby-pambyism, of ilunkeysm, to
make th'iB discrimination.

misunderstood. I repeat, it ir; my
sincere desire to see every meritori

Mr. Hill. Does the Senator want
an answer to that long and compli

Mr. Butler. The Senator can use
his own pleasure, but I would be
glad to hear from him now.
Mr. Hill. I have forgotten what
the first part of the question was.
Mr. Butlek. That is the way
with these goldbugs. They excuse
their wrongdoing by ignorance and
want of memory. Laughter. That
is the only excuse for their sins of
omission and commission. .

would demand payment in wheat

country in debt to him on the same

THURSDAY, JAN. 1GTH. SENATE.
Five pension bills were introduced
Mr. Allen, (Pop.) Mr. President,
I wish to call attention to a matter
that occurred yesterday. The chair
man of the Committee on Foreign
Relations reported back the bill to
prevent citizens of the United States
from soliciting or receiving ana ac
cepting titles, or patents of nobility
or degrees of honoi from foreign na
tions, and for other purposes, with a
recommendation that it be mdeh
nitely postponed, which was agreed
to. The Senator from Jhio in mas
ing the report said:
"The committee are of opinion
that it is hardly worth while to dig
nify with the form cf legislation the
fact that some American citizens re
ceive titles from foreign govern
ment; that they ought to be laughed
at rather than be sent to the peni
tentiary for a crime."
I do not believe that the American
people think that way. I believe
the patriotic people, the true Ameri
can citizens of this country wa,nt to
see a law passed by Congress that
will punish as a crime any man who
may accept a title or patent of no
bility from a foreign government.
I hope the Senator who had charge
of this measure will permit an order
to be made this morning placing the
bill upon the calendar for considera
tion. The Vice-President. If there be
no objection, the vote by whiph the
bill was indefinitely postponed will
be reconsidered, and the bill will be
placed on the calendar with the ad
verse report of tbe committee. The
chair hears no objection, and it is so

He Wants Goldbac Statesmen and Ottice
Holders To Be Paid at the Kate of Cold
Col. Harry Skinner is right after
the goldbugs, He says if they want
a gold standard they ought to be
paid in gold k standard wages. He
has introduced a bill concerning
which tho Washington Post says:
Probably the most unique bill in
troduced in Congress this session
comes from Mr. Bkinner, of North
Carolina, who purposes to press a
measure which provides for a reduc
tion of one-third of all "dispensation
paid to persons in public service,
and thereby to meet the deficiency
in the Treasury." In other words;
Mr. Skinner designs in his bill to
freeze out all the office-holders, in
cluding, of course, the Presideut,
Cabinet, and both branches of Con
gress, until a law is placed on the
statute books providing for the free
and unlimited coinage of silver at
10 to 1.
In the preamble of his bill Mr.
Skinner sets it forth as an unassaila
ble, self-evident fact that "the de
monetization of silver has resulted
in the depreciation of land, labor,
products, and the stagnation of bus
iness." The salaries of all govern
ment officials and employes, he holds,
were based upon prices and condi
tions existing prior to the demoneti
zation of surer, and "all govern
ment officials and employes are re
ceiving salaries and wages in excess
of what the same service would com
mand in any other field of employ
ment." From these and other prem
ises he ordains the enactment ot a
law in three sections, as follows:
Section 1. That all compensa
tion, whether paid as salaried, fees
ner diem, mileage or otherwise of
any person, oirjcer or employe in
anv branch of the public service
