Mr. Thurston, of Nebraska, vigorously upheld a strong application of tho Monroe doctrine and was at times warmly applauded for the patriotic ring of his sentiments. Senator Turpie, of Indiana, touched Upon the Turkish atrocities in a brief but very energetic speech in which, ho declared hlnw shot. ifnomu "i- I which would crash through the sultan's seraglio, sweeping back Mohammedisjn and advancing Christianity. The pntyer of the senate chaplain referred to the Appearance of another star and involked the knitting together of IN- hnrrs of nil the people of the Union for tho and glciy 'of cur beloved country, Mr.

Turple, in presentin? a petition concerning Turkish massacres, said in the recent calamities the Armenians were charged -with no re. volt. They were charged only with be Jng Christians, rneironiy crime wno that they claimed. and exercised the right to worship the Dlvne Creator of I the unverajp. The time baa come, said the senator, that there should an official notification to Turkey and.

to the Mohammedan church that there has been a decadence In thi'ir power u) the sword. "We have already sent a mesfage." said the senator, referring to the concurent resolution, "but the blow should rollow. The message should be followed by a shot which would go crashing through the grand seraglio." urged that it would be a glorious day when tne aestrucuon ui this Turkish power was brought about. He would have the messages and demands sent not only tp sultan, but echoed through the mosques'and mina'rets. It should thunder these murderers learned the power and advance of Christianity.

The senator urged that the Christian world might now be called upon to take up. another great crusade, driving back the rule of Mohammedanism and establishing the rule of Christianity. Mr. Turpie spoke with great earnestness and vigor, and his remarks attracted much attention. The Debs Rcsolntton.

Mr. Call's resolution for an or, nr-ront of Eucpne Debs came up and Mr, Call urged Immediate action, saying that the laboring intereats of the country desired the Inquiry. Mr. HU1. N.

said that ordinarily he had great respect for the laboring people of the country. But he Pointed out that no petitions had come from the representatives of these people. He had never heard that they desired this investigation. It might be that such an inquiry was desirable, but if so it should be conducted by one of the regularly constituted committees, and not by a special committee. To that end Un Hill offered on amendment directing that the whole subject of contempt of court, as enforced by the federal Judiciary, be Investigated by the committee on Judiciary and that a report be made oa to what if any legislation was necessary.

Mr. Call dissented to the amendment Was it intended to suppress this in'lOlry. he asked. These regular committees were "the nepulchers" of legislation. If'action was to be taken a special meeting was the only means of accomplishiltjglt.

3 Mr. Hill urged that this was a Judicial ouestfon and hence proper to be considered, by Uie Judiciary committee. Mr. Allen Interposed with a dissent to Mr. Hill's statement of the supreme court decision.

He sold the court held it had no jurisdiction to give the relief asked. It did not rule on the merits. Mr. Allen severely, criticised Judge Woods who committed Debs. Hill said he would not be put into attitude of opposing on inquiry.

He paid a high tribute to Mr. Debs and "aid the action he urged was with a view of securing appropriate legislative acilon. Mr. Allen created a flutter of excite- by asserting that In his opinion the express purpose of referring the resolution to a standing committee was to suppress and kill it. The resolution Anally went over, allow Mr.

Thurston to addrt'ss the senate on the Monroe doctrine. Except for a brief pension speech It was his first speech since entering the sen toHM J-J ute arm ne wan accurucu viwnc Mr. Thnrfttou's Hprrcb. Senator Thurston said in port: The adoption of flhe resolution reported by the committee on foreign affairs will present a grand International issue which may hold much of menace to the world's peace: a-n issue which I sincerely hope and profoundly believe will rwnolred to the abiding pcace and honor and permanency of this republic, but whldhf ft is useless to deny, mny precipitate upon our beloved country ill tu?

It our people ever become so senile and degraded as to be willing to Hit the honor of lite nation on the stock exchange, to go up or down the market. It will be time to turn the plotured face of Washington to tlic wall, and to cut the sword of Grant.lnto the sea. Mr. President, it la Bravely argued ttiut our country Iras outgrown tin necessity tor any further enforcement of tile Monroe doctrine. It contended upon this floor that our neighboring republics are not worthy of our sympathy or assistance because of the Instability of their established forms of government and of the Ignorant and helpless character of ttoelr populations.

Any country which im shown its ability to rid itself of despotism, is worthy of our encouragement and substantial aid, in all Its struggles and all Its efforts to secure for its people a greater measure of liberty, enlightenment and civilization, than -they now enjoy. hIm af Pntrlotivm. I am not unmindful of the seriousness and gravity of 'the present eituotiod. Wo are calling a halt upon that settled policy ot cgETosslon and dominion which oharacterlspd the extension of the British empire from the hour In which her adventurous prow turned to unknown seaa. But don thin furnish Any reaaon why Americans should abandon any settled policy of the United Stales, or retire from any PfWtion urMbh the honor of this republic and the welfare of America require that wa should asaume? Mr.

President, our people have been represented as e-ager fbr wnr, and th? senator from Colorado seems to believe that It necessary to oool their ardor by dlsparagvment of the doctrine and eulogiilm of British grandeur. Ours Is a mlchty nation, but Its people are slow to wraHi. They believe In the dlvlno doctrine taught by the lowly Naxurene on the shores of Galilee.

Sir, there Is no division of sentiment in t-he United States. Let but a single drum beat be hwird upon our coasts announcing the approach of foreign foe, and there will spring to arms, In north and south, the grandest nrmj the ivorlil has ever known; animated hy a deathless loyalty to their country's IIuk. and marching on to the mingled and Inspiring strains ot our two national airs, "Yankee Doodle" and "Dixie."

I shall vote for the resolution reported by the committee on foreign affairs. I shall vote for It, not as an affront to any other nation, but to uphold the dignity ot my own.

I shall vote for It In this time of profound tranquility, convinced that pence with honor can be preserved: but sir, I would vote for it Just as surely ivere we already standing In the awful shadow ot declared war. I would. vote for It were the navies of all Europe thunder lug ai our naruora. -tvuimi were the shells of British battleships bursting above the dome of the nation's cnpltoL I would vote for It, and would maintain it, all hazards and at any cost, with the last dollar, with the lust man, yea, though It might prestige coming of a mighty conflict, whose conclusion should leave me without a son, as the last great contest left roe without a sire. Other Mr.

Voorhees, of Indiana, who was until recently chairman of the finance committee, spoke In advocacy of the reroonetization of silver and sharply arraigned those responsible for the elimination of silver from coinage. Mr. Gray, of Delaware, urged a gold standard. HJs speech was notable in its presentation of tbe fluctuations prices, showing them to result from invention and natural causes and not from silver demonetisation. Another effort was made by Mr.

Jones notified senators to prepare for a test of endurance on, os he would ask them to sit until a vote was taken. BhortSenalon of the Home. WASHINGTON, D. Jan. session of the house was brief to-day.

General Nelson A.

Ho said that our cities are open to attack by any country having a large navy and that Jt would take years to create the necessary armament. Ho estimated that the entire cost of the coast defenses for adequate protectRm of the country at about for fortifications and guns. This would not Include the cost of ammunition and proJectlles.
