Mr. Conger then moved that the debate
on the silver bill be extended from 2 until 3

rfHs motion was agreed to and Mr. Morse,
V)f Massachusetts, took the floor in sup
port of the house bill and in opposition to
the senate bill.
During the debate Mr. Taylor, of Illi
nois, opposed the bill and charged that it
was being pushed by the most disgraceful
lobby ever in this capital. The senate
passed then? bill and then senators came
tight over here and tried to get their mem
twrs to vote against it laughter.
The debate was continued by Messrs.
Peters of Kansas, Cutcheon of Michigan,
Bunnell of Minnesota, and Williams of
Illinois, Bayne and Brossius of Pennsyl

The hour of 3 o'clock arriving the
speaker declared the previous question or

The speaker replied in the affirmative
and caused the first senate amendment to
be read. It was the section providing for
free coinage and was a substitute for the
first section of the house bill providing for
the purchase of $4, 500.000 worth of silver
On both sides it was at once recognized
that this was to be a test, and the yeas
wid nays were demanded on Mr. Springer's
motion to concur in the senate amend

were watched with the closest interest and
the result, the defeat of the free coinage
amendment by a vote of 13o to 152, was
hailed with applause on the Republican
The following Republicans voted with
the Democrats in favor of the free coinage

Vpon the announcement of the result
Mr. Springer withdrew his request for
further separate voles on the remaining
senate amendments and with the excep

considered en masse.
A motion to concur failed on a standing

On the fourth amendment (giving legal
tender quality to the silver certificate) Mr.
Breckinridge, of Kentucky, asked for a
separate vote. But his motion to concur
was defeated upon a viva voce vote.
A motion was made by Mr. Conger to
disagree to the amendment of the title. It
was agreed to without division as was his
motion for appointment of a conference
committee and the struggle was over.
Mr. Ilitt, of Illinois, presented tno con
ference report on the diplomatic appropri
ation bill and it was agreed to.
Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, from the com
mittee on rules, reported back a substitute
for the resolution introduced by Mr. Lodge,
of Massachusetts, setting apart live days
of the present week for the consideration
of the national election bill. The substi

Mr. Springer moved to adjourn and Mr.
Kulcx? snouted: "This is a bill to revolu
tionize the government."
Finally it was agreed to allow fortv min
utes debate on the" resolution with the ua.
lerstanding that the previous question
should be considered as ordered and Mr.
Springer withdrew his motion to adjourn.
Messrs. Mc.Millin and Blount vigorously
attacked the bill and from this time on
there was great confusion on the floor.
Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, and Mr. O'Neill,
5f Indiana, engaged iu a colloquy somewhat
personal in its nature and this added
much to the already existing disorder
that the sergeant-at-arras came forward
with his mace of office and restored jrder.
Mr. Springer, of Illinois, moved to table
the resolution. On a yea aud nay vote
this motion was lost yeas 116, nays 133,
Mr. Coleman, of Louisiana, being the only
Republican who voted with the Demo
crats. The resolution was then adopted. The
minority report in opposition to the federal
election bill denounces federal interference
in state elections, and states that the elec
tion under the provisions of the bill, if ful
ly applied, would cost the taxpayers of the
country $10,000,000. The report makes par
ticular objection to the change made by
the bill in the number of precinct super
visors. After deciding to meet at 11 o'clock for
the six days during which the debate is to
continue, the house adjourned.
He Addresses the Senate in Support of
Them The Wyoming BilL
Washington, June 23. The senate bill
to prevent the transportation in bond of
merchandise between the United States
and Mexico and to restore that right
whenever the Zona Libra was abolished
was reported adversely.
The following bill was taken from the
calendar and passed: The house bill in
creasing by $50,000 the limit of cost of the
public building at Springfield, Mo.
Mr. Call rose to address the senate on
the subject of resolutions heretofore
offered by him and reported back adversly
by the committee on foreign relations,
one authorizing the president to open
negotiations with the Spanish government
inducing that government to consent to
the establishment of a free and independ
ent republic in the island of Cuba, and the
other in relation to the German ownership
of a largeproportion of the bonded debt of
Cuba. When the clerk was reading the
second resolution Mr. Sherman moved the
doors be closed.
Mr. Edmunds seconded the motion and
the vice president directed that the gal
leries be cleared ahd the doors be closed.
The doors were reopened at 1:30 and the
senate then took up the house bill for the
admission of Wyoming into the union as
a state. The bill was laid aside tempor
arily and Mr. Ingalls offered a resolution
instructing the committee on privileges
and elections to inquire into the publica
tion in the Congressional Record of today
a personal explanation by Mr. Call and to
report whether it is in accordance with
the rules, regulations and practice of
the senate and directing that such person
al explanations be withheld from the per
manent edition of the Record until further
order of the senate.
Mr. Call said that he did not think the
resolution should be adopted. There was
no possible ground or reason for it and no
excuse" for it. He had asked leave of the
senate on the 2d of June last to print ex
tracts in the Record in vindication of his
career in the senate, in response to a
pamphlet attacking him, and that was all
that he had done today. At his leisure
he had prepared a-statement in his own
vindication and had submitted it to a
member of the committee on printing (Mr.
Gorman), on whose judgment he relied,
aud who had informed him that there was
no impropriety whatever in having it pub
lished. That was the whole statement of
the case, and where, he asked, was there
any breach of privilege in it?
Mr. Ingalls The senator from Florida
has, in my judgment, not only grossly
violated and abused the privileges of the
senate, but he has deliberately falsified the
record of what occurred on the day' when
the transaction took place.
Mr. Butler I call the senator from Kan
sas to order.
Mr. Ingalls I withdraw the observation.
Mr. Butler Is it parliamentary, . Mr.
President, for a senator to get up and de
nounce another senator on this floor of
having been guilty of an infamous crime?
Mr. Ingalls I withdraw the observation
and say that the senator from Florida
changed the records. So far as this is a
modification or change. I make it.
Mr. Call retorted to Mr. ingalls by pomt
ingout "how small the man, how bitter
the malevolence, how mean the character,
that could find in euch circumstances the
the willingness to accuso another senator
of falsifying the record."
He went on to'say: "I should demand of
him that he show the courage of a man,
and not the cowardice of a slanderer."
Mr. Cullom called for the regular order
of business. The resolution, therefore,
went over without action and the. senate
proceeded with the bill for the admission
of Wyoming as a state. The report of the
committee on territories was read. Mr.
Vest opposed the bill. Ho knew that in
the past states had been admitted with
small populations, because of some
sectional or party exigencies, but there
was no such exigency existing now.
The Republican party had a majority of
eight in the senate today. Mr. Vest went
on to say that he could not vote for the
admission of Wyoming with its present
constitution permitting woman suffrage.
He never would vote to admit into the
union any state which permitted woman
suffrage. In his judgment woman suf
frage was antagonistic to the spirit and
institutions of the American people and
was utterly antagonistic to his idea of the
government which the forefathers had
made and left. An objection which
Mr. Vest made to the constitution of
Wyoming was that it gave the right of
holding property to aliens.
Mr. Piatt said that Wyoming had as
good a right to admission as a state as any
territory that was ever admitted in the
whole history of the country. He was sur
prised that.gentlemen so devoted to "home
rule" should not be willing to allow a ter
ritory to decide the question of woman
suffrage for itself.
At the close of Mr. Piatt's remarks, he
made an effort to have a vote taken on
the bill, but Mr. Vest objected and moved
an adjournment and the senate adjourned.
The Bank Examiners for Kansas, Missouri
Washington, Juno 25. Mr. Lacey,
comptroller of the currency, when ques
tioned as to the contemplated division of
the bank examiners' districts in Missouri.
Kansas and Nebraska, said: "There has
been nothing done as yet in regard to the
appointment of the new examiners.
Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska are now
covered by two bank examiners, and the
department finds that it is almost im
possible for them to successfully cover this
large territory. It has. therefore, been
decided to divide it, though the exact
number of districts to be created has not
yet been determined. It is probable, how
ever, t hat it will be. so divided as to give
an examiner to each state though they may
be obliged to create four, I think, how
ever, that it will be so arranged that Mis
souri will constitute one district. Kansas
another aud Nebraska a third. There have
been a number of applications received,
but none of the applicants have been as
yet examined. These applications will
not be considered until it has been defi
nitely decided how many examiners will
be required to properlv conduct the busi
ness. This matter will be determined very
soou, aud then the papers of the applicants
will be examined. These appointments
will be made before congress adjourns;
probably some time next mouth.

The Bill as Eemodeled in Committee Given
to the Senate.
Washington, June 25. The text of the
tariff together with the changes recom
mended by the senate finance committee,
the tables showing the duties collected
under the existing tariff and estimates of
the probable effect upon the revenue and
the explanation of changes furnished by
the committee in obedience to Mr. Plumb's
resolution of instructions, was furnished
today to the senate. Changes made
from specific to ad valorem rates and vice
versa, which are numerous, the committee
states, were for the purpose of simplifying
and expediting the collection of duties, the
two rates being generally equivalent to
each other. Increases were made because
they were believed to be no more than is
necessary to protect domestic industry.
Where reductions were recommended, the
reason given in many cases was that the
new rate is believed to afford sufficient
protection to American manufacturers.
Other changes were said to be for the pur
pose of equalizing the duties on articles of
the same class.
A LAND DECISION.
Washington, June 25. The secretary of
the interior has affirmed the decision of
the commissioner of the general land office

at which he was expected. Efforts to find
him have thus far proved unsuccessful.
Young Harris is 15 years of age.

enthusiastic in pronouncing: this the most
successful assembly ever held here.
THE DAY AT OTTAWA.
OTTAWA, Kan., June 25. This was rec

Por the chairman of our national com
mittee, Mr. Quay, we feel a lasting sense
of gratitude for his matchless service in the
last presidential campaign and commend
his bearing under the slanders which his
successful leadership o our party has pur
chased for him. As a citizen, a member of
the general assembly, as secretary of the
commonwealth under two successive ad
ministrations, as state treasurer by the
overwhelming suffrage of his fellow citi
zens, and as a senator of the United States
he has won and retains our respect and
We urge upon congress the immediate
necessity of passing such legislation as
will prevent the importation and sale
of oleomargarine and of intoxicating
liquors in this commonwealth contrary to
our acts of assembly regulating and re
stricting the same, antf; empower every
state to enforce its local laws relating
thereto in the winner- &d in accordance
with the intent and purpose for which
they were enacted.
We charge the members of the next gen
eral assembly with the duty to pass such
laws, if necessity should arise, to provide
for such changes in the constitution of our
state as willl nsure to every voter perfect
secrecy and protection in exercising his
right of suffrage.

Out of the Race.
Cn?ciX2ATl, O., June 25. It has been
generally understood here that Ben But

had been gerrymandered intoaDemocratic
district, hut today United Suites Attorney
Probasco, who is regarded as very near to
"lam in a position to know that the pub
lished statement that Butterworth will
not be a candidate for congress again is
erroneous. I know that the friends of Mr.
Butterworth have not had any other can
didate in mind. Mr. Butterworth is just
as much entitled to the renomination as
Mr. Foraker is to the chairmanship of the
Cleveland (O.) convention, and Mr. Butter
worth's record is clean and brilliant, and
he is regarded as one of the great Repub
lican leaders by the press of the country.
No one can deny his fine attainments as a
lawyer, his finepresence as a nan and his
eminent abilities as a statesman. He will
be nominated and elected.
SIOUX City. la., June 25. The Repub

TATXET) TOO MUOE
The Reason Why the Pilibustering Scheme
SAX FhakcisCO, CaL, June 25. Walter
G. Smith, governor general of the organ
ized filibusters, whose attempted raid
upon lower California was recently ex
posed, has returned to his southern home
after a week's sojourn in this city. While
here he told the full story of the filibuster
ing movement to a reporter. He says that
the English Colonization company was at
the bottom of the scheme, which was in
fact simply a revolution. Major Scott,
the general manager of the colonization
cbmpany, first broached the subject to him
(Smith) at San Diego. Scott is a member
of the English Royal Engineers and came
to Lower California on a two years' leave
of absence, which has expired and he is
on his way to India to join his regiment.
Smith says: "Scott wanted a number of
Americansto locate at Ensenada, to take
up a residence there and become citizens
ot Mexico. At the proper time an
uprising of the people would take
place, arras and ammunition be
ing previously smuggled into the
territory from the United States. An in
dependent government was to be set up in
Lower California, with Ensenada as the
capital. I accepted Scott's proposition,
and at his invitation made a trip over
Lower California. If the scheme had been
carried out I would have made a clean
$50,000 by the operation. My printing
office at San Diego I intended to remove to
Ensenda, where "I was to start a daily
paper that would become the offi
cial organ of the new independent
government. I was to be made
governor general at a large salary. At
Scott's request, before I visited Ensenada,
I saw General Edward Hill in San Diego.
General Hill was with the Mexican volun
teers in the rebellion. As he was an ex
Eert in military affairs Ave looked upon
im as a valuable man for Scott's scheme.
He accompanied me to Ensenada, and
after looking over the ground we both
concluded that the scheme was feasible.
It is my opinion that it would have been a
success had not Scott taken so many men
into his confidence. He talked entirely too

New York, June 25. A day of yellow
sunshine almost without a cloud; a day of
soft west breezes that tempered the heat; a
day when water ruffles and wrinkles but
does not wave such were the conditions
this afternoon down at Sheepshead Bay
race track, where the great match
raco between Salvator, the 4-year-old
son of Prince Charlie and
Satina. and Tenny, the 4-year-old
son of Rayon d'Or and Belle of May wood,
was decided and where Salvator was re
turned the victor. And thousauds of men
aud women, too hundreds and hundreds
camp down to see Garrison and his black
colleague. Murphy, ride good horse flesh
for a tootlisome prize.
Most of the Tenny money vent on at 13
to 10 and when the bugle sounded for tho
post 7 to 5 could be had all around tho
ring against him. The best at that time
was 3 to 5 against Salvator, and barrels of
money were poured in on him at that
The conditions Match $5,000 each, with
$5,000 added by the club; to carry 322
pounds; good track; the stewards to de
cide; one mile and a quarter. Salvator
122, Murphy, straight 3, to 5, place out.
Tenny J22, Garrison.-straight 6 to 5, place
As the pair cantered upon the track,
thousands of eyes followed the magnifi
cient animals and the admirers of each
horse cheered them wildly. Grand speci
mens of horse flesh they are, both of them,
and their riders appear like part of the
animals, so perfectly they are fixed in
At the start Salvator is in front and
Murphy is just rating him along. Garri
son keeps Tenny at the hindquarters of
the suburban winner. Faster and faster
the swift racers travel and the far turn is
reached with the pair still running so
close and steady that a blanket would
have covered them. On the far turn
Murphv lets out a link on Salvator and
the gallant chestnut opens up a gap and
his partisans shout that all is over, but
Garrison begins to ride hard.
"Look at Salvator go away," shouted
the delighted backer of Haggin's horse.
Garrison redoubled his exertions but as
they sweep into the stretch Salvator has
three lengths the best of it.
"See him come, see him come," shouted
tho crowd as Tenny came the center of the
track. Soon the sounds of the flying hoof
beats could be heard by the thousands iu
the grand stand by the finish.
Garrison, the whito jockey, is rid
ing like a devil aud now the
multitudes can see him plunging the
wicked spurs into the heaving flanks of
the willing brute ho strides. With a
bound the game colt starts forward and
as he does notcollarthe leader fast enough,
Garrison goes to the whip. Up to this
time Murphy had been sitting like a stat
ue, but as Tenny began to gain slowly on
the chestnut, Murphy began to ride. At
the last furlong pole Salvator was
two lengths in front. Garrison was
riding like a crazy man. He dug his
spurs deeper in Tenuy's sides and the swish
of his rawhide ou Teuny's flanks could al
most be heard above the frantic yells of
the crowd. Inch by inch Tenny gained on
Salvator. Murphy has redoubled his ef
forts on the latterand is riding for all he
knows how, but ride hard as he might
Tenny still gain.4 and a great shout goes up
that "Tenny wins." Garrison is riding
one of the grandest finishes ever seen on i
a race track. He fairly seemed to lift his !
mount to the wire. Twenty thousand !
people are yelling like mad men. as the j
norses sweep under the wire. "ueHU heat,
dead heat,' the shout went up as the
horses' heads go by the finish together.
Salvator had won, however, by the short
est of short heads and had the race been
twenty yards further Garrison's magnifi
cent riding would have landed Tenny a
winner. The record of 2:00 1-5 was beaten
one and one-half seconds and the judges
hoisted 2:05 as the time.
FIFTY BANDITS CAPTURED.
Sax AXTOXIO, Tex., June 25. It is learn
ed here that the reported revolution, sup
posed to be in progress in the state of Noe
vo Leon and Coahuila, has resolved itself
into an organized attempt to raid tbe cis
tom houses at Monterey and New I.aredo,
where there is a large amount of goki ami
silver bullion from the Mexican munis en
route to the United States. A body of
fifty Mexican renecades living in Texas
crossed over the river and made a play for
the metal. Snor Felipe Gonzales, a
wealthy merchant of Tampico. who ar
rived today, says that the movements of
the filibusters were well known to tbe au
thorities. When the attack oa tbe custom
houses was made tbe bandits were con
fronted bv five times their number ot sol
diers. Tfiey were taken prisoners to a
man. and it is Senor GonzaJen' opinion
that tnev were led into the cbapparal and
shot. He significantly remarked that' We
won't hear lrom thoe fellows &ny more."

THE SUNDAY SCHOOLS.
PrrrsBUEG. Pa,. June 23. It was 10
o'clock when President Harris, of Alabama,
called the international Sunday school
convention to order this morning. At that
hour fully 1,000 delegates were in their
seats. After devotional exercises and
some unimportant routine business the re
port of the general executive committee
was presented and read to the convention
by Chairman B. F. Jacobs, of Chicago.
The report of the statistical secretary gives
the following: Number of Sunday schools
in the United States. 105.SJH; officers and
teachers, 1.120.43S: scholars, S.5SS.S51; total
in Sunday school 9,719.264. In Canada
schools, 6,CS9; officers and teachers, 55,706;
scholars, 52S.329; total) in Sunday schools,
5S4.035. In Newfoundland and Labrador
schools, 314: officers and teachers, 2,182;
scholars, 22.S17; total in Sunday schools,
24,979. 'Hie committee recommends
the establishment of training schools
for Sunday school teachers and also that
theological seminaries add Sunday school
normal lessons to their list of studies. The
executive committee calls attention to the
great necessity of paying strict attention
to the teaching of temperance in Sunday
The next world's convention is to be held
in America in 1S93 and the committee
suggests that it be held in Chicago, as the
world's fair Avill be opened there in that
year. It is proposed that the Sunday
schools of America erect a building in
connection with the other world's fair
buildings at Chicago, in which there may
be such an exhibit as will illustrate the
Sunday school institute, lasting an hour
or more a day and extending through
sixtv or niuet y davs. The proposed cost of
the building is ?100,000.
Following the reading of this report
were the reports of the convention com
mittees, after which tho convention ad
journed for dinner.
THE BIG HGHT.
Sullivan and Jackson May Get Together
WASHINGTON, June 25. The Sullivan
Jackson fight, when it comes off, it is said
now, will" take place near tho national
capital. The fight, it is said, is to take
place under the auspices of tho Virginia
Athletic club, on the Virginia shore of the
Potomac near Washington. Some months
ago a good deal of comment was caused by
the enactment of a law by the Virginia
legislature, which incorporated an ath
letic club and gavo the officers of
tho club omnipotent powers as to its
grounds and property. It is stated today
that tho club lias purchased the property
lying between this city and Alexandria
known as tho Gentlemen's Driving park
and propose to erect thereon a club house
and such other buildings as may be neces
sary. The work of construction islocommenco
at once and the management, has announc
ed its intention to have tho Sullivan-Jackson
fight take place there.
They say they can do this without inter
ference, for the law plainly states that no
sheriff or police officer has any jurisdiction
over the property of the club. Tho only
remedy is the repeal of the law, and for
this purpose a special session of the legis
lature would have to be called. The Vir
ginia legislature, a biennial body, does not
mcot in regular session for nearly two
The management has intimated that tho
opening performance at their new grounds
will be a bull fight. This proposition
would bring out all the objection that
could possibly be made and the matter
would then have to be settled by tho courts,
which the incorporators say, and appear
to beliove, would uphold the law as passed
by the last legislature.
A Question Whether They Are Patriots or
SAX Axtoxio, Tex., June 25. Senor
Felipe Gonzales, a wen Ithy merchant aud
rancher, of Tampico. Mexico, arrived in
the city today fresh from the pcene of tho
alleged revolutionary operations in Mexi
co. According to Senor Gonzales the al
leged revolution is nothing more nor loss
than a bold attempt of a well organized
gang of bandits to commit robberies. Gon
zales says that on last Friday the bandits,
under the leadership of an ex-ollScer oi the
Mexican army, attacked a train near
Monterey bearing gold and silver bullion
to the United States. Tho train was well
gnarded by a detail of soldiern and a
pitched battle ensued, in which several of
the bandits were killed and their leader
was captured and has since leen shot.
The bandits, Gonzales declares, were
Mexican refuges who crossed from the
Texas side of the river, near Laredo. Senor
Gonzales spoke of tho matter with great
earnestness, and with an air of confident
truth. However, it is tho general belief
here that revolutionary movements of no
inconsiderable importance are in progress
in Mexico, which belief is strengthened by
the fact that it is impossible to receive nn
swers to telegraphic inquiries ou the sub
ject sent to the Mexican capital and other
