Mr. BOWE reviewed the various propo

had smokers In the discussion. The Ben.
ator from Ohio (Mr. Sherman) believed
145,000,000 of an Increase to be sufficient.
The Senator from Indiana (Mr, Morton)
thought- $65,000,000 would be enough.
and cue Senator from Massechusitta be
lieved 5200,000.000 would be about right.
Re might pertinently ask each of the

would be all that were neceisar)? Why
not take off ail restrictions and let the
people waste ell the money they
wanted to invest in banking? Our
currency would not be endanger
ed, If care was taken that one
class of pisper 'should be retired as
fast as another came Into use. The ob.
jaCtlol2 to sills was based upon the sup
plaid= that the people would prefor
National note, to bank note., but the
answer to that was, that the good-sense
of the people would give preference to
the beat circulation. and that, would be

the west should have the bulking
facilities which they needed, nod of
which they 'wine deprived by the
present grossly unequal distribution.
Mr. SA WYEM said he would favor the
bill as propped to be amended by Mr.
Morton, increasing the volume of cir
culatten beyond that proposed by the
Committee. He advised prudence and
caution, so that business interests might
not be disturbed. '
Mr MORRILL (Vt.) favored tbeprop
°video of the Finance Committee, end
explelned the circumstances under
which the prevent evident of distribution
had been adopted, claiming it bad been
put in operation as • war measure, and
that the west at the time declined to
avail itself of It, while the south, in con
sequence of the rebellion. could not. Ile
thought the banks of the loyal States
should not suffer because of their support
of the Government.
Mr. MORTON 'advocated the bill as
proposed to be modltled, to authorize
502,000,f00 additional and taking $i3,000,
000 when accessary from the excess of
the north and east.' He opposed the pro
vision In regard to min notes, I:eliciting
that if the banks' were established oa
the basis proposed, they would ho used
for gold gambling purposes.
.Mr. Morton quoted from statistics to
show the disparity In National circula
tion, establishing the fact that the west
ern cities, with a united population of
1,...N10,000, have but ii 8,84000 altogether,
while the Eutem cities, with a copula•
tion of 12.250,000, have 5130,9410,000, show
ing that the great States of She west
needed to have more than double their

they had not been friends to the credit

Messrs. Platt, Ridgeway and Maxim
thereupon came forward and took the
'oath of office..
Mr. WOOD objected to the oath being
administered to Mr. Porter, and read as
the ground of his objection charges and
specifications upon which Porter had
been convicted and sentenced to Mx
months imprisonment, which sentence
was approved by ?d.j. Gen. Maier; that
Porter was eciiveted of declaring pato.
hely in a tavern at Norfolk that this
government "was a God d—d humbug,
from beginning to end: that Abraham
Lincoln was doing everything he could
for his own election, and that this was a
rotten, bogus, corrupt government from
- beginning to end."
Mr. PAINE, in answer,
sent to the
Clerk's desk and had read a telegram
from Gen. Butler, dated May Gth, 1888,
stating that Chas. H. Porter in a heated
discussion had used words which being
reported to him he was obliged to notice.
He had, however, omitted all the oner

ridge, raid he would hazard the opinion
that if gentlemen were to be excluded
from the House who could be proved
to have used such language, meats on his
left (Democratic aide) would be pretty
generally vacant. (Laughter.)
Mr. WOODWA.RD declared, with some
excitement, that the casertione of the
gentleman from California were slander-
Mr. PAINE resumed the door, and
lasisted on the previous question.
The previous question having been
seconded, and.the main question ordez.
Mr. HOLMAN moved to reconsider
the vote ordering the main question,
which motion gave him the right to the
floor for an hour. He divided his time
among the members on both sides. An
excited discussion -ensued.. between
Messrs. 'Holman, Smith, (o:erm ) Beck,
Yeerbecs. Sargent, Oa& Ma am,

Mr. llOLMAN"reminded the Rouse of

Brown, members elect from Xentucky,
on the protean, of having need expres
sions that were regarded as disloyal.
-Mr.. VOOREIEES remarked that the
ustly good effect of the objection to Por
ter was that it would involve member,
on tne opposite aide in contradictions and
necessitate a change of front. The cue
presented no difficulty to him. There
was no reason agalobt Porter being
.worn In, as he held that the House had
not the tower to make inquiry Into his
record, if hie constltttente sent him here.

one of the first, If not the first, to de
ammo secession. Toe great body of the
Democrats had stood by Douglas e and
Union. When a member from Kan.
au (Mr. Conway) offered a series of ree
olutions for dismemberment, who no the
other aide moved to expel him? But
when a member from Uncionati (Mr.
Long) made a epeech for seceealon and
disunloo, a majority of the . Giber aide
anted 110 expel him. But one seas la Eta
publican and the other a Democrat. If
all thou whamade expressions against
the Union before the war were excluded
from thls House, half the 'meta on the
other aide would be empty. Ho . Weed
with his friend (Mr. Voorhees) ea to the
right of representation. No wrongs on
either side 'could make a right, and they
should set no roles for them.
Mr. SARGENT repeated that the Detn•
ocratle party of the North had not been
during the war in sympathy with the
Government. A-Democratic President,
• Northern man, bed sent &message to
Congress stating that he bad no power to
coerce a State, and In that he had been
