Washington Notes.
The House had a stormy session last
Thursday over the effort made by tbe
Democratic leaders to unseat Joy of Mis
souri and Hilborn of Calitornia. The
scheme was so inquitious that the Demo
cratic members withheld their votes and
there was no quorum. Speaker Crisp came
down on the floor and appealed for votes;
Reed got back at Crisp and the other
speakers, and Crisp went back to the Chair
and made some outrageous n lings.
President Cleveland sent his message
vetoing the Bland seigniorago bill to Con
gress, Thursday. He thinks an addition
to the silver coinage would not be wise,
that it would have a tendency to deplete
the gold reserve, that the bill is somewhat
obscure, and that a wider liberty in issuing
bonds to maintain the gold reserve of a
hui dred millions is necessary.
Monday the debate on the Wilson tariff
bill was opened in the Senate by Voor
hees, whose speech was considered a very
lame one
Tuesday in the Senate Allison dissected
the Wilson Bill. In the House the Demo_
crats unseated Joy of Missouri and seated
O'Neill, but could not get a quorum to act
on the California case.
Os February l,at the port of New York,
there were 1,608,077 pounds of wool cloths,
valued at $1,250,029, and 7,822,829 square
yards of wooled dresS goods worth $1,389,-
077, waiting for the Wilson bill to become
a law so as to compete with the product of
the American mills and reduce the value
of American labor.

The army marched in the snow from
Salem to Columbiana, 0., Thursday, were
well received at the latter plaoe,and Brown
made an anarchist speech.
Tho army reached East Palestine, 0., i
Friday afternoon, where thirty-two men

the state line and was in Pennsylvania.
They camped that night in New Galilee, in
Beaver Co.
Sunday they inarched to a point just
above Beaver Falls, where they established j
Camp Valley Forge. Thousands ot people
visited their Camp during tbe day. Plenty
of food wag sent to them, and enough Dew
recruits joined the army to make it number
Monday at 8 a.m. the camp at Valley
Forge was broken, and the army tramped
down the Beaver and ud tbe Ohio to Se

number of sight seers It was well fed at
Economy and camped that night at Se
At 4 P. M. of Tuesday the army reached
Allegheny city, dusty, wear; and foot
worn An immense crowd of people
numbering perhaps 20,000, lined the st reets
for miles, to see them. They camped in
the old Exposition grounds and proposed
staying there till Thursday morning
Coxev and Brown addressed a large audi
ence the common, that evening
At Pittsburg, twenty-eight of the army
were arrested as vagrants, and sent to the
Workhouse; and twenty more were under
arrest No parade was allowed by the
police of Allegheny,but Coxey and Browne

through tbe two cities and started towards
The War in South Carolina*
A pitched battle occurred at Darling
ton S. C. last Friday night between the
citizens and tbe State Constables which re
sulted in the killing of four men and the
wounding of a umnber of others. Tbe con
stables had been there on the lookout for
whisky. Several houses which were sus
pected of containing liquor were sere bed.
This aroused tbe enmity of the citizens
and threats against the officers were treely
made. That night the State Constables
went to tho station to take tbe train for
Florence. So great wa* th« indignation of
tbe citizens that a large crowd had assem
bled at the depot. Tbe officers were jeer
ed and it was soon evident that serious
trouble would result. The Constables
grouped themselves along tbe platform
and the excitement was at fever heat.
Suddenly tho fight began in which near
ly a hundred men took part Before the
combatants could be separated four men
had been killed and several others received
serious wounds.
Those killed were Constables Pepper and
McLerdon and Citizens Normau and L. S.
T'ne coief of Polioe at Darlington imme
diately telegraphed Governor Tillman of
the serious nature of the triable, and 00l
unibia and Maiming troops were immedi
ately ordered out.
A di.-'puicu wa* received at tho State Cap

ty, stating that tho people there had seiz

and that they were waning to attack the

The following extracts from President
Cleveland's message vetoing the Bland bill
are interesting.
I believe that if the bill under consider
ation should become a law it would be re
garded as a retrogression from the finan
cial intentions indicated by our recent re
peal of the provision foreiDg silver bullion
purchases, that it would weaken if it did
not destroy returning faith and confidence
in our sound financial tendencies, and that
as a consequence our progress to renewed
business health would be unfortunately
checked and a return to our recent distres-
sing plight seriously threatened (
This proposed legislation is so related to
the currency conditions growing out of the
law compelling the purchase of silver by
the government, that a glance at such
conditions and a partial review of the law
referred to may not be unprofitable. •
Between the 14th day of August 1890,
when the law became operative, a. d the '
Ist day of November, 1893, when the
clause it contained directing the purchase
of silver was repealed, there were purchas
ed by the Secretary of the Treasury more
than 168,000,000 of ounces of silver bullion.
In payment for this bullion the govern
ment issued its treasury notes of various
denominations, amounting to nearly flofo,-
000,000, which notes were immediately
added to the currency in circulation among
our people. , , ,
Such notes were by the law made legal
tender in payment of all debts, public and
private, except when otherwise expressly
stipulated, and were made receivable for
cusioms, taxes and all public dues, and
when so received might be reissued. They
were also permitted to be held by bankiug
associations as a part of their lawful re
serves. On the demand of the holders
these Treasury notes were to be redeemed
in gold or silver coin in tbe discretion ot
the Secretary of the Treasury; but it was
declared as a part of this redemption pro
vision that it was"the established policy
of the United States t* maintain the two
metals on a parity with each other upon
the present legal ratio as may be provided
by law."
The money coined from such bullion was
to be standard silver dollars, and after
directing tbe immediate coinage of a little
less than 28,000,000 ounces, the law pro
vided that as much of the reme'ning
buHion should be thereafter coined as
might be necessary to provide for the re
demption of the Treasury notes issued on
its purchase, and that"any gain or seign
iorage arising from such coinage shall be
accounted for and paid into the Treasury.
This gain or seigniorage evidently indicates
so much of the bullion owned by the gov
ernment as should remain after using »
sufficient amount to coin as many staud
arp silver dollars as should equal in num
ber the dollars represented by the Treas
ury notes issued in payment of the entire
quantity of bullion
These treasury notes now outstanding
and in circulation amount to $10~.9a1,-»u.
and although there has been thus tar but a
comparatively small amount of this bullion
coined yet the so-called gain or seignior
age, as above defied, which would arise
from the coinage of tbe entire mass, has
been easily ascertained to be a quantity__ot
bullion sufficient to make when coined 00,-
156,681 standard silver dollars.
Considering the present intrinsic relation
: between gold and silver the maintenance ot
, the parity between tbe two metals, as
mentioned in this law, can mean nothing
less then the maintenance of such a parity
in the estimation and confidence of tho
people who use our money in their daily
i transactions. Manifestly the mainten
ance of this parity cau only be accomplish
-1 td, so far as it is affected by these Treasury
I notes,and in the estimation of the holders
r of tbe same, by giving to such holders, on
r their redemption, the coin, whether it i»
gold or silver, which they prefer. It fol
lows that while in terms the law leaves the
! choice of coin to be paid on such redempt
. ion to the discretion ot the Secretary of the
, Taeasury, tbe exercise of this discretion,
if opposed to the demands of the holder,
is entirely inconsistent with the effective
> and beneficial maintenance of the parity
• between the two metals.
If both gold and silver are to serve ns as
; money, and if they together are to supply
' to out people a stable ,currency, the ne
cessity of preserving this parity is obvious,
r Buch necessity has been repeatedly con
ceded in the platforms of both political
' parties and in our Federal statutes. It is
r nowhere more emphatically recognized
than in the recent law which repealed the
i provision under which the bullion now on
Land was purchased. This law insists
upon tho "maintenance of tbe parity in
I value of the coins of the two metals and
' the equal power of every dollar at all times
in the markets and in the payment of
debts." Tbe Secretary of the Treasury
ha*, therefore, for tbe best ot reasons, not
only promptly complied with every de
mand for tbe redemption of these Treasury
notes in gold, but the present situation as
well as the letter and spirit of the law
appear plainly to justify, if they do not
f enjoin upon him, a continuation of such
i redemption. ~
We have now outstanding more than
$338 000.000 in silver certificate* issued
under existing laws. They are serving the
purpose of money usefully and without
question. Our gold reserve, ftniaunting to
only as little more than SIOO,OOO OJO, is
directly charged with the redemption of
$346,000,000 of United States notes.
W hen it is proposed to inflate our silver
currency it is time for strengthening our
gold reserve instead ot depleting it. 1 can
not concieve of a longer step toward
silver monometallism than wa take w hen
we spend our gold to buy silvercirtiticatea
for circulation, especially in view ot tne
practical difficulties surrounding the
replenishment ot our gold.
This leads me to earnestly present the
desirability of granting to the Secretary ol
the Treasury a better power thau now
exists to issue bonds to protect our gold
reserve when for any reason it should be
necessary. Our currency is now in such
a confused condition and oar financial
affairs are apt to assume at any time so
critical a position that it seems to me such
' a course is dictated by ordinary prudence,
i I aui not insensible to the arguments jn
favor ot coining the bullion seigniorage
now in tbe Treasury, and I believe It,
could be done safely and with advantage if
1 tbe Secretary ot the Treasury had tbe
power to issue bonds at a low rale ol iater
[ est uniler authority in substitution of that
now existing and better suited to the pro
' tectiou of the Treasury.
I hope a way will prtsont itself in the
near future for the adjustment ot our mon
' etary affairs in such a comprehensive and
conservative manner as will accord to
! silver its proper place in ourcuireucy; but,
, in the meantime, lam extremely solicitous
that whatever action we take on this
subject may be such as to prevent loss and
discouragement to our people at home and
tbe destructiou of confidence in our finan
cial management abroad.

shall the "Old Grave Yard" be Desecrated
by Law ?
Under the terms of a general law, the
ast Legislature enacted a piece ot special
egislation; (we hope not specially to meet
, case in Butler,) but which singularly
:over« the around, and this without any
totice whatever to onr citizens. The law
illowii school Hoards, "under certain cir
:umstanc#s,"to violate the resting places of
hedead Under this Act the school board of
Sutler, is now attempting to invade the
ildest burial place of the town, consecrated
)y the founders of Botler a* a perpetual
eating place tor their dead. It has so re
nained until this day. That it has not
>een so well cared for as it should Lave
>een, is freelj admitted. But, that very
act, instead ot affording a reason lor its
arther desecration, should stimulate onr
>orough authorities to take immediate
iteps lor its permanent preservation, such
L movement would be cordially seconded
jot only by the people of the town but of
dl the surrounding conntiy, the larger
>ortion of the interments in this burial
ilace being from the country. At this very
ime a fund has been collected and safely
leposited, and considerable additional sub
scriptions, at once available, have been se
;ured to handsomely enclose and ornament
;heße sacred grounds as a Memorial Park
such action would seem to be more in har
nony with the intention of the donors, and
icith the enlightened spirit of this age,than
:bat proposed by our School Directors.
The plea of necessity is suggested for the
proposed desecration. It has no foundation
whatever. In a crowded city, where all
>ttter property is already permanently ap
propriated,, there might be a semblance of
propriety in the suggestion But, even in
>.uch ca>e, in our large cities ancient burial
places are sacredly protected. At the
head of Wall street in the city of New
York —the business centre oftbis country —
is a venerable grave yard untouched for
over a contury by a desecrating hand. In
the heart of the city of Philadelphia, the
old grave yard containing the grave ot
Benjamin Franklin, and his cotxmporaries.
remains as sacred as it wai in the days ot
the Revolution when it was conseorated;
carefully cared for by the city authorities
It can hardly be pretended tha', every
available spot for a school house about
Butler is so pre occupied that it is impos
sible to secure, by purchase or even ( on
demnation, sufficient ground for this pur
pose, and that our educational necessities
are such as to drive us to tho dire extrem
ity of invading the graves of onr forefathers
to find a home for a healthy education ot
the children.
It is a matter of regret that the thought
ot cheapness of price should be put for
ward as good reason for the proposed dese
cration. The bare mention of such a reason
snould be insulting to the intelligent mor
ality of the School Board. The bones and
dust of onr ancestors cheaper than other
ground! But, if the thought could be tol
erated, tho Directors would find that even
from a money point of view, this property
would prove to be the dearest spot they
could find in Butler. Tne piece of clan
destine legislation under wliich they
would operate, requires large expenses for
dis-interment and re-intermeut, tor the
purchase of a new cemetery, for the pur
chase and setting up of head stones, etc.
But all this is but the beginning of the
cost. There are reversioners still living t<>
assert and maintain theii claim in the
right and title to the property, so, that af
ter all the expense, first referred to, has
been incurred, the property would be like
any other town property on the market,
anil the question to be determined would
be: what are these valuable lots on tbe
comer of McKean and North streets icorth
—one of the handsomest squares in Butler
—and the prico will have to be paid the
mmx as if there never had been a irraw
yart there. These lots "will come hirjli."
It would look as if the School Hoard had
uot counted all the costs, it they have dar
ed to meditate on the cheapness of the
But, were there no other reason for the
intrusion upon the homes of our dead an
cestors, the impossibility of dis-intering all
the dead tuned in this old grave yard
should be conclusive against the project.
There are about 120 marked graves. There
have been no burials there for over forty
years. Only (lust could be gathered from
these graves. But there is a much larger
number of wholly unmarked graves. Whole
families are buried there; the location of
whose graves, cannot be designated.
There lies the remains of John Cunning
ham, one of the lounders of Butler, and
there they have slumbered for nearly nine
ty years. Xo person in Butler can desig
nate the spot where they are buried, but
they are there. What is to be done with
them? There lie the remains of a venera
bio Revolutionary soldier tbe ancestral
head of the MoKee family, still worthily
represented in our midst He served his
country bravely and iaithfully, and after
fighting his last battle, laid down iu Butler
to rest, for how long, gentlemen of the
School BoardT In that old grave yard
lie the remains of tho first Christian Miuis
ter who ever preached in Butler county,
buried there over seventy years ago, and
by his side his wife and two sons. There
is the grave of tbe wife ot the Hon Walter
Lowrie, one of Butler county's most highly
honored sons, who reached the exalted po
sition of a seat in tho Senate of the Uuitud
biates. His wife, an eminent christian la
ay, has been buried there for 01 years, and
by her side her little son. There one of
the earliest Methodist ministers has a
grave to be cared for by those who have
followed him in tbe ministry in Butler,
and there it has been undisturbed for two
thirds of a century. Those venerable,
pioneer settlers of Butler county, —the
father and mother of Hon. John Bretiin
and grand parents of Hon. James Bredin
sleep in that old grave yard. A few years
t-iuce an attempt was made with loving
hands to dis-inter the remains of these
loved ones. But it was found to be iropos.
