I believe in the enthusiasm of numbers; "as iron1 sharpeneth iron, so a man sharpen- etb the countenance of bis friend," and such a nost or inenas ougnt to mane our races very bright. I am glad because it seems to be becoming fashionable to be religious. These hosts of young men are living down the old isneer, "that religion is for women, and children." They are .teaching the world that there Is notning more manly than a sincere tend earnest love for Christ: they are challenging the Infidel to call the Chris tian man ettemmate. it is true tnat you can notbe more pure, or more unselfish, or more Gbd-fearing, or get more good of any kind in jyour heart, without being more like the average woman: but our Baotist Younir Peonle are Droving that this' does not make a man less strong or courageous, less able to cope with difficulties, or less willing to lift burdens! The wore or tnis organization is one or burden-lifting In all lts departments. The members are lifting the, burdens in the local society. .The associational work of evangelization and education is being carriea rorwara wltn earnestness. The states are laboring to extend the cause in their own borders.! and the national society has done a work; in its six years of history that would be miraculous if it was not the work of a divine leader.i This organization is to teach the young Christian of this generation that to be saved is not all there is of salvation; that there are possibilities of service within him that culture may develop and that It Is his privilege not oniy to enmo up nimseir into the kingdom of heaven, but that he may be nermitted that sweetest iov known on earth, the Joy of leading souls to Christ. It teaches him to love not simply manliness, but mefi! to see in everv human beine. how ever low upon the scale of merit, a possible jewek of eternity. It is for the promotion of trns work that we have met to-day. I am grateiui ror tne -reiiowsnip i see m vmir faces.

FREE SILVER RESOLUTION. The report of the resolutions committee was that it had grown a substitute for the free silver resolution ' which waa presented by Mr. Thomas, of Colorado, yesterday and referred. A motion to have the resolution brought up to-morrow at 10 o'clock for discussion was carried. The substitute resolution is as rouows: "Whereas. The transmlsslsslDDl congress has at its last sessions declared In favor of the free and unlimited coinage of both gold ana silver at tne ratio oi lttui; ana "Whereas, sue ft action by this congress has proved a most potential factor in arousing the nation to the necessity of a return to its former wise and beneficent coinage system, the success of which efforts call for redoubled energy in that behalf on our part; therefore, be it "Resolved, That we heartily commend the action of President McKinley in appointing a commission to try to secure an International agreement, and most earnestly hope that success may crown their efforts. We further affirm that such efforts are proof of the failure of the gold standard to advance the Interests and prosperity of the American people, and of the fact that tha restoration of bimetallism is almost universally demanded by them. HUGH CRAIO. "Resolved, That while we favor the free, coinage of gold and silver through international agreement at the f atlo of 15 or 16 to 1, if it can be secured, yet efforts in behalf nf such an agreement afford no reason for the American people to cease their endeav ors in Denair ot inaepenaent Dimetauism on the part of the United States, and this congress places itself upon record as de manding the immediate restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver at the present ratio of 16 to 1, without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation, such gold and silver coin to be alike a full legal tender for all debts subllo and private.

FIFTY-FIFTH CONGRESS. San Pedro Brextw-tter. Agin .Precipitates Controversy in the Senate. , Emphatic and Personal Exchange Batwi Stewart and "White Harris Paoifta Railway Resolution Still Pending Hons Adjourns Without ' Transacting Business. WASHINGTON. D. C-.July 15. Mr. Stewart moved in tha Senate to-day a reconsideration of the action of tha Senate ta passing tha resolution :dlrectlng tha Secretary of War to proceed in the conatruotiom of a breakwater at San Pedro, CaL It reopened the long standing controversy over the location of a deep-water harbor on the Pacific coast, and led to an exciting debate between Mr. Stewart and Mr. Whits, of California, ' Mr. Stewart argued that the original law provided for a deep-water harbor to coat about (3,000,000, while tha Inquiries of tha Secretary of War disclosed that tha break, water would cost this sum, while tha entire harbor would cost about $3,300,000. Mr. White answered that government aa. gineers had reported that the breakwater would give a harbor of commerce, and la addition to this there waa an toner harbor available. It was rather surprising, Mr. White added, that tha Senator from Nevada', who presumably represented the people of his state, and not of California, shoull Interfere in this question. This 'stirred up a hot personal contest. With evident agitation, Mr. Stewart declared that he resented the intimations made. He had a light as a 8enator to adopt such course as he desired, and he had no personal interests to servg such as those who represented terminal railroads. Ha did not propose to drag in such questions. Mr. White responded that as far at terminal railroads were concerned he did riot' represent any of them. He represented California, and In this question he had the concurrence of his colleague from California, the California delegation in Con- f ress and the people of the state, and they elt they .could attend to the interests of the state without the assistance of the Senator from Nevada. "It is rather singular," proceeded Mr. White, "that when we have; a matter affecting the Southern Pacific vRallroad the Senator from Nevada steps In and attempts to do the duty of a Senator from California, Only one Inference can be deducted, that the -Senator does not represent any constituency whatever in this matter. The peo- Mr. Stewart had remained on his feet, and in Indignant tones answered: "1 resent this charge, this criticism. I am here as a Senator of Nevada. I do not allow private Interests to affect my vote or my action.-! can do right, notwithstanding the Southern Pacific or anybody else in connection with it. 1 do not oppose r-erythlng that comes up that may benefit the Southern Pacific or tho Northern Pacific, or the people at large, I do not hold up any man or corporation I hata aa a red flag against legislation." The Senator called on Mr. White to show anything in his course in the Senate to warrant such criticisms. Then It would be time to make charges, but until then h would proceeit as he deemed right without regard to sneers from any one. . The motion to reconsider was Oien disagreed to on a viva voce vote. - Mr. Thurston, chairman of th CririTrJa on international expositions. mutM t passage- of - the Joint resolution accepting ine invitation or tne frencn republic to take fiart In aa international exposition at Paris n 1900! .

Mr. Harris spoke In bud nor t of tho reso lution. The resolution was laid aside temnornrllv and Mr. Tillman secured the passage of tha bill in relation to the Interstate transportation of distilled spirits, declaring such spirits to be subject to state laws to the same extent as spirits distilled in the state. Mr. Allen, of Nebraska, snoke In ninnort of the Harris resolution. He was Involved in irequent controversies witn Air. Uear. In the course of his remarks he urged government ownership and operation of the Union Pacific road, declaring that it would reduce passenger and freight rates from 50 to 60 per cent; Mr. Gear insisted that government ownership would increase passenger and freight rates 4-1 per cent..- Mr. Gear asserted that the wsanagers of the Populist party had suppressed a report on government ownership of railroads after finding from statistics that It Increased rates. Mr. Busier, as chairman of the Populist National Committee, promptly denied tha statement in toto. Mr. Tillman came in at one point with the statement that one-fifth of the railroads of the country were In, the hands of the i courts, which was analagous to government ' Awn rahln TXTV,v .V,n,iH Mr,. k O 1 and exeevtrve authorities run a railroad aa , well as an irresponsible Judgef When Mr. Tillman referred to bis observation, while Governor, of tho Irreru Unities In Judicial railroad management, Mr. Gear suggested: "That only shows the lack of morals la South Carolina." "No: It shows the lark of morals In tha Judiciary of the United States in controlling , railroads." answered Mr. Tillman. Mr. Allen had not concluded his speech on the Harris resolution when, at 5 o'clock, the Senate adjourned. Hoaae. A No business was transacted by the Houso" to-day. Immediately after the Journal was approved a recess was taken on Mr. Cannon's motion until to-morrow, Mr. Cannon having given assurances to Mr. Bailey that, in his opinion, a oartlal or complete conference report on the deficiency bill would ba ready bys that time.
