Mr. Morrill addressed the Senate on
the silver question.
Mr. Morrill premised with the remark
that the elaborate speech of the Senator
from Kentucky(Beck) to throw the bur
den of rejoinder on friends of the ad
ministration. "I do not mean," he
continued, "to encroach upon the priv
ileges which so many Democratic Sena
tors appear eager to enjoy of coming to
the rescue of the President and Secre
tary of Treasury against the rathei
cruel attack made upon a cardinal meas
ure of tbe administration, as I know the
fate of those who venture to interfere
with family quarrels; but this measure,
by which silver might be maintained on
a par with gold, so worthy of all accep
tation, I fear will not have, after the
hot demonstration of the recognized
leader of bis party in the Senate against
it, that unanimous support to which it
may be fairly entitled. In the first
place let me say that there are no par
ties so far as I know, in the Senate or
out of it, that propose or that have any
wish to demonetize tilver. To charge
otherwise is the basest assumption and
unworthy of the arena of fair debate.
Everybody is willing, nay, anxious to
keep as much of silver in circulation as
can be done, and keep it at the same
time at par with our gold coinage. The
only hostility to silver arises from what
seems to be tbe fixed and passionate
purpose on the part of !eome of its ad
vocates to promote such an excess of
silver coinage as will drive gold coinage
out of the country and leave our vast
trade and commerce based upon silver
only. In reaching this position of silver
monometallism, it is impossible to be
blind to the disastrous contraction of the
circulating medium of the country that
would at once occur, for when the mo
ment arrives that gold commands a pre
mium it will all beheld as a commodity
for sale, and not for circulation so
small as 5 per cent, premium being aa
productive of universal hoarding as 25
I per cent. ; and no possible advantage to
1 our people could be expected from fol
lowing the lame and feeble example or
TnrU;. nr Mexicn in utilizing a silver cur-
rencv only. "

At the conclusion of Mr. Morrill's
speech a running debate followed upon
the silver question, participated in by
Mr. Beck and Mr. Teller upon one side
and Mr. McPherson and Mr. Morrill on
the other, with occasional remarks in

Matson, of Ind.. on behalf of the Com
