After the call of committees for reports
the Hawaiian debate was resumed, Mr.

support of the McCreary resolution.
Ho took the position that Minister
Stevens, in ordering ths troops ashore at
the time of the revolution, had been
guilty of an act of war; that in betraying
the government to which he had been ac
credited he had been guilty of treachery,
sod that in scheming with the sugar in
terests to overthrow a weak monarchy
with o view to annexation he had been
truiltvof cowardice. He analyzed tho
events of the revolution itself to show Mr.
Stevens' seal on behalf of the revolution

the Hawaiian islands into the United
States, he said, wero ma'rked by mock

Washington, Jan. 81. The internal
revenue bill was placed as a rider upon
the tariff bill Wednesday afternoon by a
vote of 173 to 44. The entire day was
spent in the consideration of amend-'
ments offered to the various internal
revenue features. The principal fight
came np on Aie proposal to increase ths
tax upon whisky from 90 cents to tl and
extend ths bonded period from three to

Washington, Jan.31. The entire time
of the senate Wednesday was consumed
in the discussion of Senator Stewart's
resolution declaring the secretary of the
treasury has no power to issue the bonds.
Washington, Feb. 1. The principal
speeches in the senate Thursday wero
made by Senators Stewart and Allison,
both of whom contended the secretary of
the treasury had no power to issue bonds
for other purposes than redemption.
Washington, Feb. 1. At 6 o'clock
Thursday night, at tho close of one of the
grandest, most imposing and most im
pressive scenes ever witnessed in the
American Capitol, the Wilson tariff bill
passed the house of representatives by a
vote of 204 to 140.
At 12 o'clock, after a preliminary
skirmish of an hour over the barley
schedule, the bill was reported to the
house and the closing speeches were
Then for three hours the oratory of the
champions of the two economic systems
followed Reed, Crisp and Wilson
while their partisans made the air vocal
with their shouts of approval. The ap
pearance of the speaker of the house
upon the floor engaged in debate was in
itself a remarkable as well as an unusual
thing. Each of the speakers seemed to
be in his best form and the speeches
which they delivered will rank among
best and most brilliant of their lives.
When these were finished Mr. Wilson,
who spoke last, was lifted to the should
ers of his admiring colleagues and car
ried from the hall, amid a scene of un
When it cams to the voting the victory
of the measure was overwhelming. The
vote upon the income tax proposition
(taken in connection with the internal
revenue amendment) stood 183 to 50.
Only 12 Republicans voted upon this
proposition, seven for and five against.
The Democratic opposition amounted to
45. The last effort was made by those
Democrats who are opposed to the meas
ure in whole or in part, led by Mr. Co
vert (N. Y.) to recommit the bill, but the
Republicans refused to join in this at
tempt to scotch the measure and it ended
in dismal failure. But 86 Democrats
voted for it, not even enough to secure
the ayes and nays, a record making vote,

Washington. JreD. vs. xno oeoate on
the Hawaiian matter began in the house
Friday under a special order which will
bring it to a vote Monday at 4 o'clock.
The adoption of the order was preceded
by a very lively passage-at-arms be
tween Mr. Boutelle and Mr. Catchings
(Miss.), a member of the committee on
rules, which resulted in two attempts
made by the former to have the words
of the latter excepted to by the house
and subject him to censure.
Washington, Feb. 2. The day in the
senate was not an eventful one on Friday.
After an hour's debate early in the ses
sion, Senator Peffer's resolution was
adopted, calling upon the secretary of
the treasury for the names of persons
and corporations bidding for United
States bonds and the amount of bids and
the rate of interest. The resolution of
Senator Stewart denying the authority
of the secretary to issue the bonds at this
time was taken up and consumed the re
mainder of the day. Senator Vilas made
the principal argument in opposition to
the resolution. The senate adiourned
without action on Stewart's resolution.
WASiiiNGTON.Feb.d. Hawaiian debate
was continued in the house. Some rout
ina business preceded the debate, though
Mr. Bland presented the report on the

Washington, Feb. 5. The Hawaiian

Beainnlne of a Contest Between the Sonne
Washington, Feb. 6. The action of
the house committee on public lands yes
terday in refusing to report favorably
bill sent over from ths senate granting a
certain amount of the proceeds of the
sals of public lands for -the school of
mines will probably be the beginning of
a contest between the house and senate
in the matter of land legislation. The
senate committee on public lands is made
up of western'meir. In ths house there
are a great many western men on the
committee, but they do not come from
the mining states or from those states
where the great bulk of public lands are
now located. There have been several
measures proposed by these senators, and
approved by the senate committee,
which will probably not receive favor
able consideration by the house. The
scheme of the senators will be to attach
this legislation to some of the appropria
tion bills and then will come the real
contest between the house and senate
over land legislation. It is probable that
the Western senators will try to get
through several bills m this way which
they think: will be of importance to their
our brkadstuffs abroad.

SITUATION AT CRIPPLE CREEK.
Xo Work Belay Done at Several of the
Cbhtlk Cheek, Colo., Feb. 3. On ac
count of the differences between the
miners and the mine owners in regard to
the hours of labor no work was done at
theZenobia, Pharmacist, Victor, Sum

been issued to all the miners to meet at

Denver. Feb. J. D. H. Moffat, presi
dent and owner of the Victor mine at
Cripple Creek, said of the Cripple Creek
strike: "The miners are very unreason
able in their demand for eight hours
with 10 hours pay. We have dry mines
and pay 3 for nine hours work, while at
Lsadville and other mountain camps
men work in wet mines for 2.50 to $3
for a day of 10 hours. I will not be dic
tated to and if the men are not satisfied
with my terms, I will close down every
mine I have In the camp and keep them
closed, until I can run them peaceably
and on my own terms, even if it takes
me five years to do it."
