MR. TELLER ON SILVER TOPICS He Contradlcla Senator Bbermtl'i Siatemeuls as to Idle Bullion. THERE IS NOW NO IDLE SILVER The Speaker Denies the Assumption That the Act. of IB90 Left the Coin age ot Silver to the Discretion of the Seci-.'tai y of the Treasury Mr. Allison's Motion to Reconsider the Vote Ordering the Bill to Third Reading is Lost. Washington, D. C, March 11 n FTER the routine morning busi- A uess the senate at BO resumed consideration of the Bland selg Uu niorao bill. Mr. Teller, Colo rado, addressed the senate iu support of the bill. Be denied the assmnptiou of Mr Sherman and of other senators who had argued against the hill that the act of 1800 left the coinage of silver to the discretion of the secretary of the treasury, and hu declared that the act was muuadatory and that under it the secretary could coin as many ailver dollars as lie had issued treasury notes. There were one or two other points in Mr. Sherman's speech which he de sired to contradict. One of them was the statement that there was a hoard Of 864,000.000 elWet dollars lying idle in the treasury. ''There is no hoard of any kind In the treasury, " Mr. Teller asserted with emphasis, Mr. Sherman spoke of it as an idle hoard. There is no idle money in the treasury of the United states There has been no idle silver money in the treasury except that whicu lies behind the treasury notes to the ex tent of 85,000,000. This was the only country in the world, Mr. Teller said, whoso legislators depreciated its money. Wbv was is that Franc could float $500 000,000 or !WO,000,OOU of silver money'.' It was because no Frenchmau over dared to stand up iu a legislative body of that country and dcltre that tiie money of the country was not good money. It was left for this country aloue to have its legisla tive members repudiate the govern ment money. MR ALLISON'S MOTION LOST.

Testimony Resumed Id Miss Pollard's Case Against the Colonel. IDENTIFICATION VERY DIFFICULT Sister Cecilia Has a Good Memory For Names But Poor tor Faces. Cannot State Positively That the PlaintiH Was an Inmate of Norwood Convent Gratitude But no Love for Old Jim Hodes A Romantic Story. The Case Grows Moro Interesting. Washington, March 14 THE testimony of Sister Cecilia, of Pueblo, Col., formerly superior of tho Norwood Asylum, near Cincinnati, was resumed when the Breckinridge trial commenced this morning. Miss Pollard was again in the courtroom, sitting nearly In front of Colonel Breckinridge, with only the unstere-raced sister from the House of Refuge beside her. the other unknown friend being for the first timo absent.

She could not affirm posi tively that Miss Pollard had been an inmate of the Norwood couveut nor could she swear that sbe had not. When Mr. Carlisle inquired her belief on the fuct, Attorney Butterworth oh j"Cted that while any facts might be given, the opinion of the witness was incompetent. Attorney Shelby added that the question of the opinion of the witness was au attempt to invaJe tus province of the jury. Mr. Carlisle supported the admis sibility of the answer with authori ties, and Mr. Butterworth rebutted with more authorities. Judge Bradley said that if the ques tion was intended to elicit the opiuion of witness as to the identity ot the plaintiff with a certain psrson who was at the asylum at n certain time it was competent; if it was intended to show that the witness, from thing she had subsequently learned, hail become con vinced that the plaintiff had at gome time been an inmate of the asylum it was incompetent. There was some hesitation on the part of Miss Pollard s couusel in tram ing a question, it being apparent that the sister was scrupulously careful about the extent to which she would commit herself in identifying Miss Pollard, A QUESTION toll THE JURY. Finally tue plaintiff's counsel re served an eiceptitio i to the court's ruling and then framed a different question, asking "What is your opin ion as to the identity of the plaintiff with a patient in your asylum in May, June and July, lj5:' which was also overruled, another exception noted and followed by tho question "What is your bolief as to whether the plaintiff was in your asylum during those months,'' "That is a questiou for the jury," said Judge Bradley. The identity of the friend who sat beside Miss Pollard throughout the trial was divulged when Mr. Carlisle culled Dr. Belle Buchanan, and that lady walked nronnd to the witness stand and took the oath. As she was giving her name, occupation and th usual preliminary answers Mr. Phil Thompson spoke out familiarly : "Speak up a little louder, pleat, doctor, we can't hear you " Dr. Bnebenen has an intelligent face Slip slated that she first made Miss Pollard's acquaintance under the name of Louise Wilson in Juno. 1885, when Miss Pollard came from the foundling asvlutu at Norwood in a carriage, her coming having been arranged by Dr. Mary Street, now Mrs. Logan Their lions was at the comer of Fourth and John streets.
