Scmitor WolcoLt SiKxiks for .AniiMHlniorit. Jt was with much hesitation. Senator Wolcott s:iid, rmd after consultation with otliers. time tlio amendment was ofTiirc'tl. Tht 1 chief cnuinrrnssmculhuil arisen from the tairt tliat It might have boeu construed abroad as iiiiUcatlni; nil umhiOdii.siro on the part of tliu Unit<M£f.itc* Hint other countries should enter Into norm agreement for internationiil bimetalliMn. Hut. inasmuch as nine months h;id to el.-ipse between the adjournment of this eor.io'i'ess ami the mcutinK ol tho next, and inasmuch as the prcs'.dtiut of tho United Slates slioukl be ca"ieii upon to act with oilier nations In sumo conference iooldn^ to international OKI-cement rcniirdlnc ;;old and silver would be powerless io net, except by the appointment, of c-o'.nnit.ssioiiors, und would be unable to clothe them with proper authority or to have funds for tho representation of the United States or for Its share or the expenses or the conference, it seemed wise to oiTer the amcr.dmeut now. The proposition. Senator W|0leoit added, would be satisfactory, he thuu^hi, to the blmetallists 1 who voted for bimetallism, a:u! it' should be equally satisfactory to those bijnet- uilists ,vlio professed adhesion to bimetallism, but voted :'k'aln.st it. tLaufrliter]. The presided w.ould naturally, Senator Wolcolt added, select for tlie three commissioners whom he would appoint men outside of public life. The two houses would select men besilltted to act in the UKitlCr. All senators had knowlcricje of men nnionir them who could well represent them In u:iy intevnuilona! conference—men who hud spent much of their lives iu the general llnau- cial questions of tho country, and who had 11- himiuad the subject through years of thought and through utterances. Koturu to First P rliielples. For those reasons, it seemed better that congress should name its membership of the proposed commission. The senate had, tho other day, by :t , lartfO majority, declared Its conviction that bimetallism through the United ' States should at onco be inaugurated. There had been a disinclination to interfere with the business of the session, and :i knon-lcclRC that .nothiuc In tho way of legislation could be practically accomplished at this time and under existing ctrctunsiances. Uut the senate had declared Us opinion—and the sufl'orias and the poverty, and tlic paralysis of business, which had overtaken the land—that the way out of It w;is,not by waiting for the uncertain action of European countries, not by ihe abandonment of silver und the adoption of gold monometallism, but ov a return to the principles laid down by the constitution and by the financial policy which Jind brought prosperity to tha country lor more taun a auntury. ••We are," he concluded, "for bimetallism by the United Stales' alone. Jf other countries, will join us, so much the better. The adoption of this amendment will give this country an opportunity to act in concert with other nations if that cooperation shall be tendered us." lixihin Appropriation Bill Tnlccn Up. The consideration of the Indian appropriation bill was then proceeded with, this b:ing the fourth day that it has been before the senate. Mr. Kyle (pop., S. D.) offered an amendment tnat the term Indian occurring in any law on treaty shall be held to mean and include not only all Indians of full blood, but also all Indians of mixed blood, of whatever degree, maintaining- tribal relations.
