Notwithstanding Mr. Butler was ab
sent aealn to day, tlio Senate took up
Mr, Plumb's resolution to prohibit and
stop tbc sale of spirituous, vinous and
malt liquors In tlio Senate wing of tbe
Capitol. Mr. Ilawloy expressed regret
nt Mr. Butler's absence. Ho thought
that Mr. Butler's amondmont, which
was the first question to bo voted on,
Lad been offered by that gentleman as
a satire or joke.
This amendment directed the Ser
geant at Arms to mako dally Inspection
of committee rooms and other apart
mcnls. Mr. Hawlcy protested against
pulllnir on record anything so offensive.
Tuc amendment was rejected, yet It
Is on record just tho same.
Mr. Blair's amendment to add the
wotds "and their use as a beverajre"
I was next. iuaiBUn;riimvi:ijrKuuUf uu.
to say eoouy-goouy siaiosman, uau, as
usual, a few remarks to make.
He said the crcat evil was not In the
sale of liquors, but In their consumption.
It was Idle, he declared, to talk of the
selling an occasional glass of liquor In
the restaurant, while tho ronl tvll w.u
omitted. That real evil, ho Insisted,
was the consumption of liquors by
Senators In their committee-rooms.
This rather plain Intimation tha
Senators were in tho habit, In th
secrecy of their committee rooms, o
npplylng hot and rebellious liquors to
their blood until they became befuddled
atlrrcd up the anlma that Is, aroused
tho Senators to protest.
Mr Harris, with that fondness for
the rules and faith In their elllcaey
which characterize the man who Is
con'dously adept In the Intricacies of
parliamentary law, suggested that the
tlcccrcus and deliberate way was the
best. He thought tho resolution and
amendment should goto tho Commit
tee en ltulei. which had complete
jurisdiction over tho Senate wing of the
Mr Tiller said he had no sympathy
with the amendment. It was proper
that no liquor should be sold in the
Capitol but the attempt to say what a
Senator should or should not do In re
gard to the use of liquor seemed to him
to be going too far. He had never
tasted a drop of Intoxicating liquor In
Lis life He thought it might be as
sumed, and ought to be assumed,
that every member of the body
was a self-respecting gentleman. As
Lad been said the other morning, he
knew of no other body of men so tem
perate as the Senate. For tbe last two
tars, at least, mere nan oeen no ex-
llitlon of drunkenness la the cham
ber, such as was said to have occurred
forty or flfly or sixty or sev
enty years ago. The American
benate was a temperate body, am!
all Intimations that there was
srico necessity for a rule to restrain
Senators from the exeestlve use of In
toxicating drink were entirely without
foundation. Nobody knew better tbaa
the henator from New Hampshire that
that was not the case. He would,
tL-c-cf'-TC, vote against tbe amendment
and f r the resolution.
No stronger evidence that the Senate
13 a flier body should be asked tbaa
that when Mr Teller said he had sever
tasted intoxicating liquor la hU life ho
ere fhnuted, "What, never?"
Mr Sherman said when he compared
the habit? of beaators to day with what
they used to be twenty or thirty year j
a? he thought that a remarkable
cUanje had occurred. He believed the
(Serve was as temperate as a ay body of
i -en n be fuund la tbe United State.
He in-red the reference of the reeolu
tl'n to the Cutninittee on liulee.

irritation as a temperance hub would

The tarlfl discussion went on m usual
to day. Mr. Davis opened the debate
on reciprocity by a strong speech In
f Avor of that policy. This will be one
of the most Interesting features of the
entire tariff discussion.
Mr. Plumb's objection last Momlay
to the Immediate consideration of Mr.
Aldrlch's "memorandum" concerning
the tariff debato was madoHn the hope
of securing some concession In the lead
schedule favorable to the smeltine
Interests of Kansas and the region
roundabout. These smelters chiefly re
duce Mexican lead ores carring sliver.
It Is said he succeeded, and that It has
been agreed satisfactory concessions
will be made In conference.
Still, Mr. Plumb has not subsided.
He offered yesterday In tho Senate a
proposttlcn to amend the Tariff bill, by
imbodylng It In tbe Buttcrworth Cana
dian reciprocity scheme. This will
embarrass tho Finance Committee even
more than Mr. Blalno'aSouth American
and West Indian reciprocity projects.

The statement sent out by tbc gentle
men now In tho city urging tho Copv
light bill, that that bill was to be ac
corded today, Is without foundation.
Mr. Cannon of the Committee on Hulos
said ycstciday that he had not heard
anything to that effect. Inquiry dls
covered the fact that tbe time of the
House this week will be so occupied
that It will be Impossible for tbe Copy
right bill to come up. It may have a
day later on, but that will depend.
It Is a harsh thlug to say, but the
ccntlemen sent here by the Copyright
League to further the Interests ot the
bill are not helping, but hurting Its
prospects of passage.
They appear on the floor before the
session begins, and again when It ends,
and buttonhole members and pour out
alleged arguments at them at a Salvator
pace. They think they are making
converts, but they are not. They
weary members with their Iterations
and reiterations and vex thorn with their
never ending Importunities. They form
a very raw and Inefficient lobby. The
best thing they can do to help the bill
Is to go home and let the Congressmen
One member, a friend of the bill, who

IHPORTAKT BANKING DECISION
Thnt Mar t'piet n Practice Now Much
I.VUIANAfOI.IS. IM)., Aug. 27.
Judge Gresbam yesterday handed down
an opinion In tbe case of the Commer
cial National Hank of Cincinnati
against tbe Ilamiliton National of Fort
wsyne, which Is of general Intetest to
bankers. Tbe case grew out of tbe
failure of Fletcher A Sharp of Indl
ananolis. .ludse Gresbam holds In
effect that when one bank owns paper
and semis It to another for collection-,
Indorsed "Pay for collection," and It
passes through a chain of banks thus
Indorsed, the bank making the collec
tion is held to tbe responsibility of see
ing that the funds reach the original
owner of the paper. It this decision
should be upheld, It will doubtless re
sult in banks remitting collections di
rectly to the owners of paper ami sot
beck through the ctiata of basks
through which it Is transacted-

A HOWL FROM THE ARMT OF CENSUS
New Itulr Ailutitrd to r.tpeilllo the
(iettlf inent at .tccotint Vcrr
Tcctmlrnl nnd Very
For two weeks It has lieen known
that there was war eminent among the
enumerators who gathered the statistics
for the Census Ilureau. There are
about 00,000 of them, ami they are
clamoting for their promised compensa
tion. Voluminous correspondence
reaches the department every day In
regard to pay. "When are we to re
ceive our money?" "Why this delav?"
etc. Just this correspondence alone
has necessitated the employment of a
large number of additional clerks.
These demands come from all tho
States In the Union, and from tbc ma
jotlly of tbe enumerators la them. Up
to tbe present lime only a very small
proportion have had thiir accounts
Thete were days two weeks ago when
less than a doen accounts passed
through the bands of the examiners,
and It was given out directly from the
Department that at this rate It would be
several years before the accounts ot
manv enumerators would be reached.
This condition of affairs lias naturally
aroused the Ire of the outside employes
ot the Department, ami the numerous
letters now couilnc In Is the result.
This week, however, the finance dl-
Islon of tbe Census Oltlce has awakened
to the fact that It w.is about time some
accounts were Iflng hurtled through,
and for tbe fit-it time enumerators'
vouchers have accumulated on their
desks to be examined.
It has been Intimated that this delay
was more directly for the purpose of
prolonging the census work ami keeping
the army of census clerks In employ as
long as possible. Tbe seventeen or
cluhteen hundred Inside workers appre
ciate this, but those who have been
gathering the statistics for tbeut to work
on and have put lu many a hard day's
service are anxious that a pay day
should conic around for them.
Tbe petrs in the offices are compli
cated, and duplicates of everything
must be made and verified as to figure
and accounts. This Is the principle ot
every well regulated business omYe.
Yeeierdav a set of rules were issued
which will In tbe future necessitate Ike
refer ing of so many accounts that there
is no telilnK when they will get through.
Itoth J. C. Stoddard, the disbursing
clerk, and Colonel II. A. Seligson. la
charge ot the enumerators' pay divi
sion, will have their hands full. It will
not he allowable to make an eraauie of
aa addition or multiplication, failure to
dot tbe Ts" or cruse tbe "t's," any
bad fleuree or letters, making "as" and
"ms" like "us," wrung date on jacket,
writing small letter for capitals and
about a dozen more technical points.
This order goes into effect to day, and
if soy error occurs tbe account will
have to be referred hack and pass
through about a dozen hands before it
can again eonae back to the dUbursing
clerk for allowance.
It is expected that this rule will ne
cessitate the employment of an addi
tional number of clerks front tbe avail
able force at command, or the dis
charge of some incompetent ones, and
tbe filling of their places by others.
There are twenty sis distinct errors to
be avoided enumerated ia the order,
which went into effect this morning,
ami for each of them the clerk will re
ceive an error mark. A certain num
ber of these error marks will result In
dismissal, unless the person to whom
they are credited can produce surH. lent
political injuence to demand bis or her
retention in tbe bureau.
"Here to where an injustice is done."
said a clerk in the Inter Ocean buiiiiag
today, "lam able to run off twwaty
ive or thirty accounts in a (toy . Tin
clerk right at my side can only cover
about one third of that number, but re
ceives exactly the same compensation.
I am sure about my ngures, but if I
forget to i roes a, t' or dot en 'i' the drat
thing I know my place is declared v
cant This order bound to create
not a little trouble among those em
ployed in the ceneu office. It is a aure
case of extending the work of th of -fee
and some of the clerks who wen
figuring on losing tbvii places about tbe
Iwat of October now feel sattsned that
they have a winter job before theav

be a number of chnKgea nbjbt in my

a doren engines, manned by (XMcittb
of the different roads are shifting the
dead trains so that Ice cars cm be
reached. There was not as tnaay
policemen almut the yards as on yester
day, ami the forty or fifty strikers who
congregated In the neighborhood of the
yarumaster's office made no demonstra
tion. It is now believed that the strike
will be over ami the men at work lie fore
to morrow mornlne. The packers, it Is
said, will not allow the dis
solution ot the Switching Association,
and, as the strikers have signified :i
willingness to return to work at their
old wages, it is believed that some sort
of a compromise will be arrived at this
The situation In the strike of the Chi
cago and Alton switchmen remains prats
tically unchanged. The firemen and
engineers decided this morning not to
go out In support of the switchmen,
as It had nen Intimated they mlehtilo.
The company has been advertising for
switchmen nnd has secured quite n.
force of men. which It will try to put
to work this afternoon.

to the outlook In the present strike. Mid
It was a failure from the statt, because
it lacked proper executive ability behind
It. Podcrlv did not take hold until
too late to be of service. When asked
why Knights of Labor strikes failed all
over the country, be said "If you want
me to tell you what Is the reason that
the Knlgbla ate a back numb.-r. why.
here It Is: Did ynu ever hear of an
officer in an organization trying to
bleed the members for all there
was in It. Yes, perhaps yott
have. Let me tell you something.
Do you remember tbe great Southwest
cm strike? Well. 1 was right in the
midst ot that quarrel. The stock of
the railroad fell right out ot tight
While this strike was on I was ap
proached by a Wall street broker ami
offered f KW.OOO in cold cash to tell In
advance when tbe strike was lo be set
tled. I told tbe broker I was not In it
that way. I refused that f 100,000, but,
as a member of the hoard, I laid the
proposition before tbe others. Of course
they rejected it with scorn, but twenty
four hours later Mr. Powderly was
New York negotiating with tbe very
broker whom I slighted. One day later
tbe strike was declared oil." Mr. Barry
evidently knew more of this tranaectioA
than he told, but would say no wore.
