WASHINGTON, D. C, TIIURSDAY EVENING, SEPTEM1JEH 11, 1800.
RIOE TWO 0J2NTS.
THE CAR OF CONGRESS ON HIS
OLD PERCH AGAIN,
AND MORE DICTATORIAL THAN EVER.
The House Fails to Secure a Quorum
and Adjourns Early.
HEW APPORTIONMENT BILL PRESENTED.
The Republicans Will Not Attempt Any
thing in the House Unless The?
Have Their Own Quorum.
When Speaker Thotnaa Brackolt
Ttccil took the chair tlila morning to
call the House to order ho was greeted
with an enthusiastic round of applause
by the Republicans. The Democrat
looked on, silent spectators. In tho
language of tho raco track, "thoy wero
not In It."
It was at once evident that tho Spoakor
was ng(ln on deck. Immediately after
the Chaplain had concluded his prayer,
Mr, O'iTcrrall arose and called attention
to tho obvious fact that no
quorum was present. Tho Bpoakcr
looked over In his direction and
quietly remarked: "Tho question
la on the motion to order tho previous
question on the adoption or tho Journal
of tho previous day's (Tuesday's) pro
ceedings. Tho clerk will call tho roll."
livery hotly smiled, except Sir. O'Ferrall,
who was too astonished. He sat down
and the roll was called.
It disclosed that no quorum was pros
cnt. Major McKInley then (12:t p.
m ) moved to adjourn, which was car
ried by n cfru tcte vote, tho Democrats
greeting tho result with applause.
Tho Tat I IT 1)111 having pissed tho
Senate, with amendments, will b) re
turned to tho House, where It orig
inated, whenever tho House Is in seislon
long enough. Then It will be at once
referred to tho Committee on Ways and
alcana. Thero It will bo considered
Ijy tuc full committee, which will
ten concur in the Senate amend
ments, When it is reported back to
the House It will go to the Committee
of the Whole. If tho Democrat sho
a disposition to delay action by In
sisting on the separate consideration
and n rote on each amendment,
the Ccmmlttro on Rules will report a
special order limiting debate and order
ing the previous question at a certain
liour This order will be adopted by
the Republican majority. Tho Senate
amendments will be non-concurred
in, and tho House will grant
the conference requested by the Senate.
The conferrces will spcodlly agree on a
report, which will bo adopted by both
Houses, and tho bill will go to the Presi
dent, Ho will sign It, and tho long
dtawn out agony will be tomporitlly
When all this wtlt be done will de
pend on how long It take to get a
3c rum of the House. It is evl
cut that tho Republicans realize
that they can't do business now
without a quorum of their own, In
r rite rf the rules ami the rulings. Hilly
Blaaon taught them how to filibuster
successfully when the alllrmatlve side
cf n question bag not a
clear majority of the House
n quorum. In other words present ami
vtlag They have learned the lesson
well, and have applied it to the Lang,
etcn enable contested election case
with much loy and great eclat.
Speaker Heed evidently didn't care to
enter upon so profitless a session as yes
tei'lar's which was spent In wrangling
ttr I calling the roll and calls of the
H'use, finally to adjourn without even
aprrcving the journal.

which there is strong opposition, will

DAY BY DAY THE MYSTERY IS
WILL IT EVER BE DEFINITELY KNOWS
Whether the Man Was Murdered or
Died a Natural Death ?
THE SUICIDE THEORY NOT BELIEVED.
All the Evidence Against It The Ideal!-
utation Complete and Sitiafietory.
Many Theories Exploded.
The circumstances connected with
the death of C. C. Andrews are still
shrouded in mystery and during the
pest few days the Investigators have not
found a single clue that tends to the
dcvclopcmcnt of the mystery
Yesterday tho dotecllvoa dragged the
river without finding any of tho missing
man's clothes and they arc now confi
dent that Andrews committed suicide.
But the failure to find the clothes Is tho
one ugly fact that the theory of suicide
docs not fit Into. Men with sutcldal tend
encies do not take the trouble to undress
tbtmtclvcs, destroy their clothing and
then jump Into eternity, unless there Is
a good reason why they do not want
their Identity discovered. Andrews had
no reason for losing his idouttty and
taking the precaution he must have done
In order to accomplish this.
Again, drunken men seldom, if ever,
kill themselves. There was no roason
for Andrews to disappear, although an
attempt has been mado to show there
was. bcrauso ho owed the firm In which
he was employed a largo sum of monoy.
But he was a trusted clerk, receiving a
large salary about 7 or $8 per day.
ami a man in receipt of such a salary
would hardly bo likely to destroy him
self to evade the payment of a debt
which he could oaslly have paid. It is
also charged that he had Issued two or
three valueless checks, and that this
clicumttance would furnish
A 5IOT1VK Fort IHSAITKAIUNO.
Perhaps It would had tho checks been
worthless, hut from the indorsements
they evidently were not.
Andrews indorsed one check with
the firm's name, and immediately under
It wrote his own. It Is a common
practice for many firms to allow a
tiusud clerk to Indorse checks for
them, and It Is probable Andrews po4
sessed this privilege.
The fact that Andrews had bis lUe
Insured In favor of Mr. McCatthy. to
whom ho owed money. 1 not a signifi
cant fact. It Is a practice that prevails
to a large extent amone business men,
and very often the fact is stated In the
body of tho policy. That Andrews
wroto to his creditor before his disap
pearance, telling him to send the surplus
of his Insurance money to his mother In
case anything hap)ened does not Indi
cate that the man contemplated suicide.
It was the act of a careful business
man, ami the letter was written over a
month before Andrews disappeared.
He already had a policy in favor of his
wife, and what was wore natural than
that he should n ish to provide for his
mother? The Insurance companies have
hundreds cf such letters from men who
are still alive but take such precautions
as only a prudent man would. What
at first might seem to Indicate premed
itation to commit suicide, oa Invest! ;a
tlon appears to disprove that theory.
T1IHEE OTHER THEOHIBS
first, that the man was murdered, see
oad, that he died a natural death, was
robbed and his body tbrowa Into the
river, and third, that be was aceident
ally drowned while bathing.
Granting that his coadltloa was such
that be reached the loaely spot where
he was found and weat la batbiag,
his clothes would have beea lett oa
shore, aad bad sosae oae fouad thaw
he would be more thaa likely to have
reported the fact.
The whole cuirii was not worth more
than $10, aad yet there Is a reward of
$ 50 i ffercd for their recovery. This
would be fufficieat to procure their re
covery, although the thief might fear
ttat he would he prosecuted. Again,
Andrews eouhl aot swiat. aad was
hardly the aiaa who would go to the
lowly Virginia shore for a bath.
THE DSCOMroaSO BODY
is oae of the aUoageei liaks la the chela
of tvldeace that supports the first two
theories advaaeed. Oa July 90, Aa
drews was alive. Oa July 32, ahout
fifty-two hours after he was fast seen, this
badly deeosa posed body was tahaa f rosa

that the coroaer aad the physicians who

to have finally happened. The gauntlet

of the Republican party In Maine.
'Whcthct or not Mr. Illalne really,
thtough political jealousy or policy,

ter of conjecture. His friends deny It
emphatically, but Mr. Heed's lieutenant,
Congressman Uoutcllo, evidently be

paper en Mr. Illalne and his followers
Indicates. Desperate efforts aro being
made to persuade Uoutclle to withdraw
tho temarks for fear the contention in
Ihc potly will be spread outside the
Stale and paralyze national Interests.
Mr. Uoutclle has long been brooding
over what he believes to be Mr. ISlalne's
secret enmity, and the following is a di
gest of his words. Wherever In the
editorial Mr. Ulalnc'sname appears It is
piloted In small capitals.
"The Republican triumph of Monday
Is more suggestive ot exultation than
motallrlnc, and yet It would be a great
mistake to lose tight of some of Its
obvious and significant lessons. Of
Ihcte one of the most conspicuous Is
furnished by the superb vlctorv of
Speaker Ittcd over the combined eltorts
of the Democratic party and the la
tlurnces within the Itepubllcan ranks
that have been Insidiously arrayed
against him. It Is a matter of public
noloilily that a Democratic Collector

Dkxvkb, Cot, , Sept. 11. Political
affairs are becoming very much com
plicated In the Centennial State ami
even the most sanguine Republicans
are gcttlne scared. The question this
fall Is shall Henry M. Teller lie re
turned to the Senate and Rosea Town
send to Congtess. The primaries will
be held next week ami a very desperate
fight Is anticipated.
A few days ago Congressman Town
send left Ids scat In the House and came
to the Slate to sec. "you know," how
things were coming. He was tele
graphed that John McNealy, who cornea
from Silver CHIT, the same city from
which Townsend was sent from, would
make an effort to have him turned down
by the delegation from his own county.
McNealy, however, listened to a Utile
coaching, and there Is now not the least
doubt hut that Hosca Townsend will be
The clllcns of the State seem to feel
satisfied that, regardless of politics, he
has accomplished much more work In
the Interest ot the State since Jim Ret
ford lost his Important position.
Tho campaign this fall will como
more particularly on the Governorship
and the selection ot the Legislature,
which will meet next January to say
who will be the next Senator from
Colorado, act! there Is coing to be a
veiy eloti! contest. The most conserva
tive Republicans say that there Is no
doubt but that the next Governor ot the
Slate will be a Democrat, and that maa
will lie John 15 Orman ot Pueblo, luso
mucb as Alva Adams has positively de
clined lo accept a renomlnatlon.
The old Hill Teller fight Is being re
vived, and tho Denver lUpuWciiii will
still, In n Mugwump sort of manner,
try to convince the people that they ctn
control the politics of A ripahoe County.
Henry M. Teller has denied tint he has
purchased the liotky Mountain, Xtirt,
but his friends, Includlns D. A. Mot
felt. A. M. Stevenson. W. II. GrliniU
and otheis, control IS per cent, ot the

bands of ex Governor Thomas Pater

When the change took place, as an
nounced in The Cnrnc, ex-Assistant
Postmaster General Clarkson was ten
dered the posllloc of tdltor. and he had
the matter under consideration forsjuie
time. The fleht In the State la. per
haps, more complicated thaa la any
other State in the Union. When Teller
was ilx years ago sent to the Senate,
after a close and bitter conillct in the
legislature, the present tunlor Senator
and t. Senate r N P. Hill were warm
personal fiiends, but now they are the
most hittet enemies Yesterday Senator
Walcott was le ported to be sick la
New York, and It would not
be possible for bint to attend the com
ing primaries. The Republican Cen
tral Committee, after a turbulent meet
ing to day, concluded that for the sake
of harmony In the ranks that the Junior
Senator should either remain In Wash
ington or New York. The leading can
didates for nomination oa the Republl
can side are ex Governor John L

man of tiuth.and be would not allow Mr.
Smyser or any other man to Impeach
