If you want to whip an enemy, its not a good plan to furnish him am munition to shoot you with, and its not a good plan for Populists to aup- Uemocratic county paper ment and settle the controversy. If the President has power to issue the bonds which ho has already sold, under this law of 1875, then he has the power to issue a thousand rail lions of such bonds without the ad vice or coiisent of Congress. Such tremendous and dangerous power can not safely be put in the hands of any one nian. It is the power to bankrupt a nation at one stroke of the pen. The power to control our finances was vested by the Constitution not in the President, but in Congress, and we should lose no time in as suming onr sworn and constitutional duty in this respect. The language of the Constitution is as follows: "CoDgress shall have power to borrow money on the credit of the United States." But nowhere does it give that Dower to the President, and nowhere does it autuori9 us to delegate that power to the President. It is the duty of Congress to deal vith these (questions. It is the duty of Congress to decide, first, whether or not bonds shail be issued to borrow monev. and if tuev ana to be issued it is the duty ot Congress to deter mine how and under what condi tions I offered a bill containing this same provision before tho President made his last call for bonds. If Congress had promptly passed it then $100,000,000 of debt, with the interest that will accumulate, would have been saved the American peo ple. We do not know what day or what hour the President may see fit to again burden the people with debt without their consent or the consent of their representatives in Congress."

It looked like an old buzzard trying to get away from a young bakl eagle. Senator Butler said: "A few days ago the Senator from New York Mr. Hill, in a speech on this floor attempted to justify the administration in pursuing mia sui cidal course. Now, I would like to ask him a question, or, rather, to put a plain, simple, business propo sition to him. It is this: Suppose on January 1, 18J5, 1 had given my note to the Senator from Ohio Mr. s, in which I promised to rival.

Suppose nn thu lat dav of June my business called me to Europe, and, knowing that I could not return before the 1st of January, that I had askfd the Senator from New York to act a my friend and trusted agent, aod to pay this debt for me on the Irt of January, in the maimer tbat would b mott advantageous to me. Of coarse. I would have called hi at tention to tbe fact that my crop bad not been harTftted. tbat I did not know how my yield of corn or wheat would be, bat that I feared tbat my wheat crop was hort. Now let ua uppoB that my corn crop was a bountiful one, bat tbat my wheat crop was a failure. I want to ak the Senator from New York whether, under these conditions, be would debt to tbe Senator from Ohio in the corn which I bad in my barn in .randance, or would be have mortgaged mf farm to raise money with which to buy wheat to pay the debt! Mr. Hill. Does the Senator want an answer to that long and compli cate question now? 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. . Mr. II ill. I hardly think the Senator from North Carolina can expect me right off to answer a long question that takes about one pege of recital recital of the ridiculous fact that the Senator from Ohio would be apt to take the Senator's note for any very large amount. Mr. r.UTLKR. Unless it was pay able in pold. .Mr. 11 ill. well, it payable in any way, possibly. There are too many assumptions in it, and it re quires rather too much deliberation to answer it off-hand in a reasonable time. Mr. Butler. I will give the Sen ator from New York an opportunity to think over it and give tho answer at his leisure. JNlr. 1 1 ill. it uoes not require very much time, but I hardly think I will indulge myself now to answer the question. Mr. Butlek. Then I will proceed to say what I think the Senator would and should do as my trusted friend. The fact that the Senator from Ohio ilr. hill, ihe benator can an swer it himself if he wants to have no objection to that. Mr. Butler. I did not catch the Senator's remark. Mr. Hill. I sav the Senator can answer it himself if he so desires. Mr. Butler. The Senator from New York will have full opportunity to correct my statement as to how he would act if 1 do not state it cor rectly. I will state what it would be his duty to do, and leave it for him to sav whether or not he would do his duty. No doubt the Senator from Ohio would demand payment in wheat but you would not for a moment consider his demand. You would call his attention to the letter of the contract and insist on paying him according to the contract, in the manner most advantageous to me Especially would you do this if you had learned that the Senator from Ohio had cornered all of the wheat in the countuy, and besides had nearlv everv other farmer in the country in debt to him on the same kind of notes and was trying force payment from them all wheat, when there was no wheat to be had except you purchased it from him and at a price double what was when the debt was made." If we are opposed to bonds let us be honest and say so; let us pass this amendment, and do it now. Neither the Democratic party nor the Republican party can escape re sponsibility by claiming not to have a majority of this body. I PLEDGE SIX PEOPLE'S PARTY VOTES IN THIS CHAMBER TO EITHER PARTY THAT WILL VOTE TO STOP THE FURTHER ISSUE OF BONDS, AND SIX VOTES WILL GIVE TO EITHER SIDE A MA JORITY. IN FACT, EITHER PARTY CAN HAVE A MAJORITY IN THIS BODY ANY HOUR THAT THEY DESIRE TO PASS ANY LAW IN THE INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. The Democratic party had a majority in and yet they sat still and saw the President issue over $1J,MUUUUW of interest-bearing bonds without rais ing a protest or passing any law to prohibit it. Only the other day we were contronted with the remark able spectacle of Republican leaders criticising the President in his course. They seem to be criticising him and the Democratic party for having indorsed and pursued, in the main, the financial policy fastened upon this country by the Republi can party, and when they were asked to go squarely on record in favor of bonds or against bonds on an amendment which I offered to the resolution submitted by the Senator from West Virginia we found it im possible to bring the .question to a vote. I appeal to both sides to reverse their policies and to stop this great wrong, lour crimes against the American people nave beeu great and grievous, but it is nevor too late to mend. I call upon you to do it now. Let either of the old parties bring in a bill that will sop these wrongs and settle ouv present diffi culties with equal justice to all sides, and the People's Party will at once join you in such laudable and pat riotic efforts. We will EVEN SAC RIFICE OUR PARTY ORGANIZA TION if by so doing we can save the nation from British rule and restore prosperity to our psorde. House. Another long wrangle by pension grabbers and twenty-five more pen sion bills introduced. Mr. Shafroth introduced a bill to foreclose the lien of the United State upon the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads, and to in corporate a company for the purpose of operating the same until the debts due to the government, about $100, 000,000, are fully paid. WEPNESDAY, JANUARY 15. SENATE. Only three pension bills were in troduced to-day. Mr. Mills, (Dem.) .introduced tno following resolutions: Resolved, First, xnat tne unitea States legal-tender notes now out standing should not be retired, can celed, or funded into tne mieresi. bearing bonds, but when received into the Treasury they snouia oe paid out again and kept in circula tion. Second, That the whole of the sil ver bullion now in the Treasury should be coined as rapidly as pos sible. The coins from the seignior- l age should be paid oat in the cur- t V to in it rent expenditures and the other is the redeuptioa of the Treasury note Uiaed on its parehaae. Third, Tbat when from any caos there should be a deficit in the Treasury, the Secretary of tbe Treas ury should issue legal-tender note sufficient in amount to meet all de mands for current eipenditare. aad when said notes are returned into tbe Treasury they should be destroyed. Fourth. That all laws now exist ing which authorize the Secretary of the Treasury to sell interest-bearing bond or tbe government snouia ue repealed. Fifth, That it is aot only the es tablished policy of tbe United States to keep all kinds of money is sued under their authority at par, but it is also the established policy of the I'nited States to require all creditors, public and private, to re ceive the gold and silver coins in payment of all obligations where the terms of the contract stipulate for coin payment, and that it is the uty of the Secretary of the Treas ury to pay United States notes when presented in both gold and silver coins. Sixth, That we repudiate the idea that a public debt is a public bless ing; on the contrary, it is a burden which the interests of the people and the preservation of the public credit demand shonld be removed as rapidly as practicable. ! Seventh, The sinking fund estab- ished by law should be rigidly com plied with, aad the amount now pro vided should be re-enforced so tbat the whole interest-bearing debt should be extinguished as rapidly as possible without imposing unneces sary burdens upon the resources of the country. Mr. Mills made an extensive and orcible address in support of this resolution. Mr. Pugh, (Dem.) offered the fol- owing: Resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concur- ring tnerem: lnat, tne Don us oi the United States issued, or author ized to be issued under acts of Con gress, are payable, principal and in teiest, at the option of the govern ment of the L nited btates, in silver dollars of the coinage of the United States containing 412J grains each of standard silver: and that to re store to its coinage such silver coins as a legal-tender in payment of said bonds, principal and interest, is not in violation of the public faith, nor in derogation of the rights of the public creditor. Mr. Pugh said: The concurrent resolution I have introduced is an exact coov of what is known as the Stanley Matthews resolution, which passed both Houses of Congress in 1878, by a two-thirds vote. House. The day was spent in a pension crab wrangle and twenty-nine new pension bills were introduced. 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 ordered. There was some discussion on the matter of recognizing the indepen dence of Cuba. Then there was some talk on the bill to construct govern ment telegraph cables in the Pacific ocean, in which Mr. Allen took an active part. House. This day was also spent in discuss ing pensions.

For this reason our fi nancial enterprises nave been on a small scale. Now, it is a common thing for Government office r to go arouud, aud. by a mere view of the premises of one of these distilleries, to make what he calls a "delinquent assess ment" of taxes against the distiller. and thus, by his mere declaration that taxis almost as effectively lev led as it would be after verdict aud judgment by a competent court, and the property of the man is sold with out a hearing before a jury, or be fore a justice of the peace, or betore any other judicial tribunal known to the law.

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 shall be and is hereby reduced to the extent of 33i per centum of their present amounts. Section a. lnat on and arter tne passage ot tms act an compensa tion of persons employed in any branch of the public service shall be computed and paid on a basis of the reduction provided for in sec tion 1 of this act. Section 3. That the law which shall hereafter, be passed autboriz ine the ODenintr of the United States mints tor tne tree ana unnmiiea Roinatre of silver at the ratio of 10 to 1 shall work and operate as a re peal of this act, and restore to all nersons. officers or employes iu any branch of the public service the same salaries and wages that they received Dior to the passage of this act.
