Feb. 10.— The session of the senate Saturday was opened with prayer by a Loutlun ulergy:naii— Rev. Dr. H, S. Lunn, general, editor of The Review of the Churches." The reverend gentleman was accompanied by the blind chaplain o£ the senate, Rev. .Mr. Mi!hum. by whom be was introduced to the vi.ce president and several senators. .Senator Dubois (rep.. Idaho) presented resolutions adopted at a meeting of republicans from different; sections of Arizona, declaring that the republicans of Arizona, are ••unequivocally in favor of the immediate admission of Arixona as a state.' 1 Senator Stewart (pop., Kev.) introduced a bill to restore bimetallism.

"stioriiiun Offers n SubHtltuto. Senator Sherman (rep., 0.) offered a substitute declaring 1 il to bo tne <3 stab - lished policy of tlu; United States to maintain gold and silver coin at a parity according- to their coinage ratio; and "that if, ut any' time, silver coin could not be at a parity with gold coin, the bonus of the United States now, or hereafter issued, which are, by their terms, payable in coin, shall be paid in gold coin.

The house, he said, hail disposed Friday _so far as this session was concerned —ol' the success of the issue or indorse- ment of gold bonds. \V<>lu<>lc .MIiitikH tlio rrc-thlcut. ••The president's wanton :iu:ic',; on the credit of the United States," Senator V/olfOtc de- c'iiivd'passionately, "has boon the roost disastrous occurrence of tins teneratloE. Our lies; was befouled by the man who sbouid havo stooi! for our credit." Vain, Senator Wolcott said: "T!ie president ciitcrud into u secret negotiation with the Kothscliilds, at Europe, waoreby he should cive them IOUR boada nt, excessive rates, to thu discredit of our country and its ilniiuces." The -1 per cunt, bonds, which aad -list Di'ua sold to the syndicate, were now sellinir. lie said, in New York at 1U!W and would be sclllnir within sixty days at ISO. Ho believed that the sufleriUK-aud poverty which prevailed all over ike world would never ceusu until sliver as as well as sold was made thu standard of value. ",'K," Senator Wolcott said in conclusion ''there is anything that will arouse ike "\mcricau people to the belief that we can alone unduruiltn the a!:ia:i{recicrit of our il- irinces without the help of foreign bankers, it bus been that disgraceful and dishonorable dicker with the Kothschild.s." Senator Lodge (rep.. Mass.) advocated Senator Hill's resolution, the point of which, lie said, was that every obligation of the United States where coin was named in the bond is payable in the best money—in gold or silver—as demanded. As to the recent arrangement with tbe syndicate, he denounced it os "the blackest contract ever made by trie government of the Unitftd States." Hill Diffeudu the Frenldent. Senator Tlill replied to Senator Wol- cottand defended the president from the charges made by the senator from Colorado. Mr. Cleveland had his faults, Senator Hill said, but there was nothing to justify the statement that he ha"l paid a higher rate of interest in his bond contract than he was compelled to pay. At :> o'clock the agricultural bill was laid before the seriate, but Senator Teller, speaking ostensibly on the bill, proceeded to make a financial speech. House. \VASHIXGTOX, Feb. 10.—In the house house bill directing the secretary of the interior to offer for sale isolated and fractional tracus of public lands, less than a quarter section in extent, ?_'.50 an acre, or more, amended the senate so a* to reduce the at i bv minimum price to Sl-25 an acre, was taken 'up. After a little debute as to the expediency of retaining the minim-urn at S~-.50 in which Mr. McRae (dem.. Ark.), chairman of the committee on public lands, said that he saw no opportunity at this late date of iucreasinsr the minimum price of land. the amendment was agreed to. Mr. Ureckinridge (dem.. Ky.) reported the general deficiency bill for the year ending June 30. IS'Jo. and previous vears. and gave notice that he would call it up immediately after the naval appropriation bill wns out of the way. The house then, in committee of the whole, resumed consideration of the naval appropriation bill, under the rules governing general debate. Mr^Geissenhainer (dem., >'.,I.),chairman of the committee on naval affairs, spoke in favor of the bill. Mr. Washington (dem.. Tenn.) spoke against the bill with the battleship paragraph included. He was of the opinion'that the government now had plenty of rirst-ciass vessels in which naval officers could have a good lima cruising about among foreign countries at the expense of the tax payer. Jtcliu* Hi» >'•.«««• Mr. Adams (rep.. Pa.) favored the measure. He had listened to the gentleman who preceded him with ama/.e- roent. He hud not believed it possible that a man of the name of Washington could stand upon the lloor of the" house and utter such sentiments. In his farewell address the Father of Mis Country could find no better word of admonition and advice to those who should come after him in this republic than that in time of peace they were to prepare for war. Ho commended this warning to the gentleman from Tennessee. The construction of the battleships was further advocated by Mr. liartlett (dera., N. iY.) who spoke, he said, for the metropolis, of the country. The appropriation should be voted because it involved the honor and dignity of the country, the continuance and prosperity of great enterprises indorsed by leaders of both parties. Without disposing of the bill, the committee rose and the bill donating to the Iowa State Historical museum at DCS Moines two condemned cannon and one mortar was passed. Conferees on the part of the house on the post office appropriation bill were appointed. The house then listened to trilogies upon the life and services of the late Senator Colquitt, of (.ieorgia. and at thfeir conclusion, as a further marl; o! respect, adjourned until Monday lU noon.
