Ind, Stewart Continues the Attack, While. Gray Defends the'Administra- tion—In the House. ., Fcl). IS.—The senate was a center of interest Monday, as a- result of the warm discussion oC the financial question and the personal criticismsof tho president on Saturday. Slewiirt Co.iL!iiu«'U tlio Ci'ItlciMii. Senator Stewart (pop., Xu-v.) was the first, to continue the criticisms of the bond contract. ]Iis resolution was called up deoUiriag that the g.>vern- mcnt hud uo legal authority to _buy gold coin in preference to silver coin for any cause whatever. Mr. Stewart spoke of the humiliating position of the United Slates in being hold by the throat by a gold commission which had the power to "coerce and squeeze" the country up to _next October, when the contract expired. <;ni>- In L>utViisB cf AUnilnlstriitl'in. Senator Gray (dem., Del.), who is reeo"-ni/.ed as close to the ollioals o£ the administration, then took the- floor, 'lie expressed surprise that the senators from Massachusetts (Lodge) .and Colorado (Wolcott) had so fur gone out of their way to indulge in a violent assault upon the executive. The president had performed a ihity in.jvnnbent on him by law. lhat law was such that any evasion of it, would have been a plain dereliction of duty. Congress had made this law. It made it necessary to maintain the parity between the •netals by redeeming in cither. JNo sooner had congress assembled than the president applied to con- cress concerning the financial conditions. A bill was framed on the lines suggested in that message, (ir.d the house saw fit to reject it. A'-nin the president applied to con-i press Senator Gray read from the I present's message urging patriotic r., m al,,K and unpartisian action to meet tho emergency. Stowiirt An!iS ll Oucstlon. •••noes the senator Lliinli." intorjccwO Senator St(!w:u-l.

Senator Cru-v said lie would fully consider that point Inter. I'rooeeding n-itli the prebident's message the sena- ator read tho specific statement that the -law did uot provide for bonds payable in gold. At that time Senator Lodge bad not complained of the conditions clearly set forth by the proideut, but had waited until now to present a scathing denunciation. I'i-<<Hlil<!iit Loft Alone. "H-ivir," thus applied to congress," continued Mr G-niv, "having thus proseiilod thu situation to liotli liranchos of ODiigi-csh-ln appuals almo-t piithutlc In tUoir oarnostncss - the prcslJunt was lufc alono to btrugsls with tha condition, uad to meet It." The senator told of the tremendous drains of gold from the treasury, running up to S7,000,000 in one week shortly before this contract was made. From December last'up to the time of the contract S17,- 000 000 was withdrawn, and of. this only one-half was exported, showing that the other half was hoarded at home. Several Senators Take a Jl»nd. "IHs tho senator lost slRht .of the fact." nsUcd Senator Woloott, "that the secretary of tho treasury has reported to us that he had vised J105.0CO.OOO of that gold lor current ex- P °Thib did not divert Mr. Gray froro his line of argument as to the gold withdrawals for export and for hoarding at home. "Rlxh* hero T. wnnt to nsl;," said Se-jator Pefrer "is thorc any law which compels tho secretary of tKo treasury to pay rtoaaand notes In cold Instead of In silver?" ••1 have not said there was any such law, replied Senator Gray. "I know of no such law But tho ODlleatlon to maintain tho parity between tho metals makes It absolutely Incumbent to treat these metals equally. Senator Hill rose at this .point to say that the question of Senator Wolcott should not go unanswered. The secretary of the treasury had not reported to the senate, said Senator Hill, that he had used 5103,000,000 of the gold for current expenses. Senator Teller wanted to read the secretary'sreport, but Senator Gray would not yield. b'harnian Calls It » "Fmlty B»rB»In." Senator Sherman (rep., O.) made a Strong argument to prove that all bonds payable iu coin must be paid in the coin of the highest value. No sec- re.tary of the treasury would dare, in the face of public opinion, to undertake to pay bonds—for which the government had required gold coin ^ anything less valuable than that coin. The right of the bondholders :\nd the equity of. the bondholders to demand the same kind of money as that which they paid was as clear and plain as the light of day. As to finding fault with the president for this late contract, Senator Sherma-n said that the president had nothing whatever to- do with the finances of the government That subject had not been intrusted to his keeping but to that of the secretary of the treasury. The president had no more right in the matter than h« had to occupy the seat of a senator in. the senate chamber. It seemed to him (Mr. .Shermanl that it was an improvi- dent act to sell thirty-year' Oonrts at KM):' when like bonds having only ten ' years to run were selling: at 111." He believed that these thirty- rear 4 per cent, bonds would be selling- la London within sixty days at 120.
