I merely called his attention to the use of the pas sage of Scripture which he has now fully explained by saying that the passage does not mean what it says.

Harvey closed the subject for the session by say ing that he quoted section 7 correctly, what there was In another section he did not care about. . Resuming the subject of silver demone tization Harvey said "the Intention of the conspirators was to strike out secretly the single line providing for the silver dollar the size of a French five-franc piece, and with the bill thus enrolled the mints would be closed by its terms to silver, ex cept the trade dollar. To make the bill operative In this respeot when the standard silver dollar clause was erased a section was inserted in the latter part of the measure that there should be no coin struck at the mints except those herein before provided for.

In fact, the voters are forsaking the machines and are fast organizing into a well-disciplined army of righteousness determ ined to redeem their state from boss ism and thievery. Since Isador Raynor was crushed by the democratic bosses, the Gorman machine does not possess a single ora tor of ability, a single man capable of stirring the hearts of his hearers. But the People's party has a host of speak ers who are setting the state on fire by their burning eloquence and the truth of their cause. First there is William Toner, the blacksmith candidate for sheriff of Baltimore county, who is now speaking every night in the open air throughout Caroline county. A masterful physique and Napoleonic brow gives this child of the people a bearing that at once gains the hearts of his listeners, and soon his logic and force of presentation make of each hearer an abolitioni...

Harvey concluded with the words: "It would readily exhaust the words of this debate to go into all the investigations of that notorious congress." Horr rejoined as follows: "The attempt of Mr. Harvey to smirch the congress of the United States and make the people of this country believe that the people who acted as members of congress in this coun try as a rule are corrupt and have been subject to purchase and sale, can be char acterized only as infamous.

If, then, gentlemen, standing on this ground, are come to that point that they are willing to bind themselves and their pos terity to be oppressed, I am amazed and inexpress ibly astonished! If this be the opinion of the ma jority, I must submit, but to me, sir, it appears per ilous and destructive. I cannot help thinking so. Perhaps it may be the result of my age. These may be the feelings natural to a man of my years, when the American spirit has left him, and his mental powers, like the members of the body, are decayed. If, sir, amendments are left to the twentieth, or to the tenth part of the people of America, your lib erty is gone forever. We have heard that there is a great deal of bribery practiced in the House of Com mons in England, and that many of the members raised themselves to preferments by selling the rights of the people. But, sir, the tenth part of that body cannot continue oppressions on the rest of the people. English...
