Senator John A, Gordon, of Georgia, a native of that state, an early rebel, a Southerner of the Southrons in speech, dress, gesture, and who was a Major-General in the Rebel army at Appomattox Court* House, dashed into'the debate with all the old Southern fire, but with a solemnity and evident sincerity which thrilled every one in the chamber. Stretching out his hands towards the seat of Senator frprjd Kansas, he began his remarkable speech, which was as follows. 1 Mr. President, the Senator from Kansas closed his somewhat extraordinary speech with an assault upon the two leading political parties occupying this chamber and dividing this country, and an appeal for a third party. Sir, at a time like this, when the peace of great communities is not only threatened but broken, when law is defied openly, when a great central city, one of the first in this or any other land, has its* homes threatened, and indeed is threatened, by a reign of blood, and fire and terror, when great communities are lookisg hither and thither for some means of escape from the terrors which surround them, when our very civilization, not to say the form of government under which we live, is heaving with the groundswell of a great agitation, it seems to me that any representative on this floor has descended very far from th'e lofty plane of statesmanship and of patriotism who stands at such an hour to appeat to party. Sir, what; matters it to us Whether we be Bepub- licans or Democrats? What matters it" to any lover of his country and of his whole country on which side we stood in the great American' conflict in the past, so that now we stand shoulder to shoulder fqr the peace of the country, !%£$&§ ITOtojrcement of its laws, for the jsuppqrj of'Its dignity, .for the perpetui- tyiof its liberty and the liberties of its people. .. ' NO Trim FOB SECTIONAL FEELING. I do-not wish to speak of a subject like this fronfjv southern standpoint. I shall not. It jnatters not to me whether the woe-which threatens Chicago be Western,'or Eastern, or Northern or Southern woe. < It involves in its meshes tbe .very life of this Bepublio, which is'a Republic of law if it is a Republic at all. We are a peculiar people. We are a by ba at last their law. Whenever the will of the people fails to support the law the government is defunct. We have no government except the government recognized and upheld bj the free will of the people as a government of law, sanctioned by the popular will, law to protect public property and private rights, to protect the laboring m,an in his right tOj' dispense with his labor or to sell it whenever he pleases, and whenever that right is invaded by Mr, Pebsj or Mr. anybody else it is a defiance not only of the.yery spirit/which lies at the foundation o.f these ineti<;utions. ; but it is an inauguration pf ^ systonr of slavery never knbwn'in * he P 8 ^ history 9* this republic., ,There was a 1 time when tbe Souther^ master bad a right to "order his slaves to desist or to begin bis labor, bufc that; - insti^uUpn w^s , recognized, nffbtfully or wrongfully, foytu- nately or,Bn t for.(iunat;ely, in tbe ^naa- jnentaUaw of ,tbe Jand, an^ tihejnaster . slave wprding/to Jiaw, Uon has 'been -wiped the WoQd, frpm fbe ,, th e dignity of the republic over Wnch it floats and of every law ilboh its statute books. [Applause oil the floor in the galleries.] MF. President, I Want to add jUstond m'oiei thought. The distinguished sen- tttotlrotn Minnesota (Mr. Davis) said truly and wisely that the great backbone of this country were the farming classes. I belong to that class; I am a farmer and only a farmer, and as one of their representatives I stand here today to say that south of the Potomac Kiver you will not find one farmer, be be White or black, who will not rally to the cause of law and order and to the support of this government in all its constitutional rights and powers upheld by the constituted authorities Which the people have elected. Mr, President, with this ahd with the declaration that my heart embraces the suffering, I think of this whole land, I wish the matter could t have been settled, I regret the bloodshed, but I want to say as an honest man that the blood which has been shed or will be shed, be it an ocean; is nothing compared to the price of this republic and its value; and the sons of the men who made it will save it, whatever may be the-cost.

Old soldiers who are receiving pensions of $6.00 to $12.00 per month under the pension act of 1890 are receiving notices of which the following is a copy: •'Sir, you are informed that the medical evidence on file in your case does not'show that'you are snffering from a mental or physical disability which incapacitated you for the performance of manual labor in such a degree as to render you unable to earn a support, so as to, entitle you to a rating under the act,bf June 27th, 1890. « '''Thirty days (the period fixed by the act Pf Dec. 21,1893,) will be given you from the receipt hereof in which to file anysevidence that you may wish to file to, show the extent to which you are incapacitated for manual labor.

The number whose pensions were still suspended on May, 1Q, 1894, was 326. The number whose pensions were reduced dur- sng tbe period was 3,014, the number "dropped-?' from the pension rolls was 2,671, apf the aggregate -'dropped," reduced and still suspended was 6,011 as compared with 6,609 whose pensions were resumed at the same rates, or over > one-ltbjrd the total number whose pensions have been suspended. Since May 10j |t is claimed that those whose pensions have been reduced without suspen$ion is still larger than the number wh&bave been swspended, which makes/^ver 31,000 disabled veterans' pensions suspended or reduced by the rebel cgjpnel's sop, acting under the orders ofjfbe conscript, qopperbead and rebel .adoiiuistiation and congress.
