of Ohio, from the committee on ways and
means, reported back the tariff bill with
senato amendments with the recommend

in. Referred to the committee of
Mr. McKinlcy then offered a resolution

to a question of privilege.
He offered the following resolution:
Resolved, That the clerk of the house of
representatives bo directed to communi
cate to the senate the fact that
the houso of representatives con
demns the utterances of the honorable
P. Kennedy, a representative from the
btato of Ohio, delivered in the houso Sep
tember 3, reflecting upon the character
and integrity of the senate as a body.
Mr. Dingley, of Maine, raised the point
of order that this did not present such a
question of privilege as would take the
gentleman from Ohio (Mr. McKinley)
from the floor.
At the suggestion of the speaker Mr.
Knloo withdrew his resolution for the
present, and Mr. McKinlcy, from the com
mittee on rules, reported a resolution
for the immediate consideration of
the tariff bill in the house.
After two hours general debate it shall be
in order to move to non-concur in the sen
ate amendments in gross and agree to the
committee of conference asked for by the
seuate and the houso shall, without fur
ther delay or other motion, proceed to
voto on said motion. The previous ques
tion on the resolution was ordered yeas

M. Blount, of Georgia, protested against
Mr. McMillin, of Tennessee, opposed the
resolution and criticised the committee on
rules for rcnortimr it. The majority in
caucus had determined not only that the
minority should be throttled, but that the
plumed knight should be throttled.
The resolution was then adopted yeas
114, nays 72.
Mr. McKinley, of Ohio, gave a very brief
statement of senate amendments, but en
tered into no argument as to their pro
priety or impropriety.
Mr Flower, of New York, said that tho
estimated revenue for the year was $450,

ns it was with an amendment for reciproc
ity which meant reciprocity and not one
t thee jumping jacks, the string of which
the president could pull at any time?
Mr. McRac, of Arkansas, opposed the
bill, both in its original form and as
umended. on the ground that it dis
criminates against the farming industry.
Mr. Payson, of Illinois, thought that in
Various respects the bill as it passed the
enate was preferable to tho measure as it
passed the house.
Mr. Yaux. of Pennsylvania, wished to
h.iy to tho farmer and tb the laborer that
tliis tariff bill was a cheat. Two thousand
people were enriched by tho bill and sixty
millions were impoverished. The majority
believed in every trust save one the trust
in a righteous and just God.
Mr. Cummings, of Xew York, said ho

Mr Enloe then called up his resolution
in regard to Mr. Kennedy's speech on
Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, raised the point
of order that the resolution was not in
order The time to have called the gentle
man from Ohio (Mr. Kennedy) to order
v.is when that gentleman delivered his
speech. The gentleman could not now be
ciluil to order for his utterances.
Mr Knloe contended that the point was
j'ut well taken. It was a question affect
ing the dignity of the house and the
integrity of the senate. The gen
tit. man from Ohio, Mr. Kennedy,
Lad no more right to make a personal a't

nal lie then sent to the clerk's desk and
had read extracts from Mr. Kennedy's
ppoech as it appeared in the Record this
morning. He argued that it was due to
thehou'-e that no utterances reflecting
unon the senate should be admitted into
t he Record.
Air Bayne, of Pennsylvania, said that he
r incurred in the remarks of the gentlmau
from Teunoee. It was due to the seuate
of the Uni ed States that the house
h'.. uld adopt the resolution which had
been offered. It had occurred perhaps
fr the first time in the history
of the country that two senators
of the United States had been attacked by
name in the house of representatives and
the senate had leen attacked as a body;
and that epithets had been applied to those
M-nators w hich would dishonor and dis
grace any mau before the country. It was
in the interest of the justice and truth and
of the honor and integrity of this body
that no technicality should interpose to
prevent the house "from doing it dutv.
The utterances of the gentlemau from Ohio
on .Septemlier 3 had been withheld for re
vision and had not apjenred in the Record
until today, so that notice could not be
taken before by members. Today those
remarks appeared, shorn, perhaps of some
ot their atumn-itie and misrepresenta
tions, but notwithstanding, it contained
s ich a palpable charge of corruption in the
senate that the house could not refrain
frm putting the seal of its condemnation
npnu them. This was no place to attack
members ot the seuate. The rules and
c lurtesy which had always been maintain
ed in this body had protected its members
from assaults from the tunate and the sen
ators from assaults from members of the
house. He trusted in the interest of what
was right, of what was due to the house in
honor to itself, that no techicality should
be allowed to come in the way of condemn
ing the utterances made by the gentleman
from Ohio (Mr. Kennedy).
Mr. Grosveror said that he had made the
point of order because he believed that

taken in the regular way, by a report from

A VOTE TODAY.
The Senate Will Act Upon the land
"Washington, Sept. 15. In the senate
several bridge bills were taken from the
eclendar and passed. The proposition of
Mr. Frye to take up the bridge bills was
attended by a slightly bitter exchange of
courtesies between the senator and Mr.
Plumb. The latter said that while the
senator from Maine was "off fishing," he
(Mr. Plumb) was at work and that now
tho senator had come back "with his face
all browned from his contact with nature

done at all except according to his own
Mr. Frye resented Mr. Plumb's remarks
and said that in ten months he had been
absent exactly fourteen days and had not
mised a roll call since the second of June.
"The senator has been absent just four
teen times as much as I have been," was
Mr. Plumb's next remark.
"I have not been absent, said Mr. Frye,

The presiding officer (Mr. Ingalls) inter
posed that such colloquies were liable to
degenerate into personal altercations.
All tho bridge bills having been disposed
of, the senate proceeded to the considera
tion of bills on the calendar to which there
was no objection (under Rule 8). Tho fol
lowing bills, among others, were passed:
Senate bill to amend tho act of June 19,
1878, to creato an auditor of railroad ac
counts. This bill requires all subsi
dized railroad companies to transmit
to the commissioner of railroads
duplicates of all bills for services in the
transportation of passengers or freight, the
carrying of mails, express, or for any ser
vice whatever rendered for or on behalf of
the United States. The commissioner is
to forward these bills to tho proper ac

officers are to report their action thereon
to the commissioner of railroads. Tho

and enlisted men of the First Kansas vol
unteers. Mr. Sanders resumed his argument on
the railroad grant bill. After remarks by
Messrs. Plumb and Morgan, it was agreed
that the vote on the conference repoit shall
be taken at 2 o'clock tomorrow and the
senate then adjourned.
AN EMPLOYE INTERESTED.
But the, Eaum Committee Eefuses to
Washington, Sept. 15. In the Raum
investigation today Mr. Cooper asked tho
commissioner whether there was n sub
coninany of the Universal Refrigerator
company in this district. The commis
sioner objected to go into the matter, but
at tho request of the chairman proceeded
to answer Mr. Cooper to the effect that
steps had been taken looking to the forma
tion of a sub-company; that stock had
been subscribed; that Tanner (who sat at
his desk) was secretary of the company;
that Tanner had subscribed for one share
of stock so as to be able to act as incorpo
rator; but that no money had been paid
in; that tho organization was in
lact mclioate as yet. lanncr was
absolutely the only pension office employe
interested in the "company. The patent
company and witness (who owned uine
tentns of the district rights) were to re
ceive in payment for the franchise 500.000
of stock, but the arrangements had not yet
been ratified by the patent company. The
interposition of Mr. Cooper's resolution
had stopped tho negotiations. "Witness
had withdrawn from tho field and stopped
selling state rights until he could, by the
action of a practical working plant, "&how

Mr. Cooper said that if the commissioner
sought to show the value of the invention
ho wanted to prove that it was a fraud,
but the committee declined to go into that
Mr. Lewis introduced the following reso

this action, adopted Mr. McKinley "s-pecial

amendments. In deference to the wishes
of many of the Republican members who
returned to Washington this morn in" in
answer to telegraphic calls it was decided
that the effort should be made
to take up the tariff bill immediately in
the house. This necessitated the displace
ment of the contested Virginia election
case, but it was the understanding that its
ofponcment should be aslongonlv as
was jiecesary to dispose of the tariff' bill

be held in line to secure action upon the

South Carolina case of Miller vs. Elliott,

THE DEMOCRATIC OUTLOOK.
Major E, J. Simpson, one of the Demo
cratic wheel horses of the territory, was in
terviewed today by the Eagle correspond
ent as follows: "
"Don't you think the selection of Cleve
land county for holding of the Democratic
congressional convention was made in the
interest of candidates living in the south
ern counties V
"If so, certainly in the interest of no par
ticular person, for there are so many gen
tlemen from that section spoken of.
"Who are the prominent candidates

"Well, aspirants, as yon well know, sim
ply place themselves in the hands of their
mends, and many of them do a nice, qniet
business and remain in the hands, as

such a vote he, (whoever he may be) would
be an important factor."

and after the campaign I made in the
Mitchell-Reynolds contest some of my
friends thought I was paving tho way for
something congressional, but I've no such
crazv quilt idea."
"Will the Democrats nominate the same
man for both the long and short term?"
"I think not. The People's party al
ready has a candidate in tne field for
delegate to congress, and the sentiment
is to nominate for only the one term and
unite on the Peoples' candidate for the
other term. This combination would
sweep the field just as surely as I think

WILLIAM ON LABOR
Coercion a Poor Method of Working So
BERLIN, Sept. 15. Emperor William
made an Important speech at a banquet at
Breslau Saturday night. In the course of
his remnrks he said he hoped that other
provinces would imitate Silesia in regard
to the improving of the condition of work
iugmeu. He agreed with the Liberals,
who declared that state coercion was not
the right way to oppose social democracy
and society must help itself. Social re
forms, he said, could only le introduced
by the citizens themselves. He trusted the
people would awake from their lethargy
and not leave it to the state to struggle
against perversive elements.
CONTINUAL PRACTICE OF POLYGAMY
Salt Lake, Utah. Sept. 15. The Sep
tember term of the Second district court
at Beaver has jnt closed. In sentencing
some of the prisoners convicted of unlaw
ful cohabitation, Jude Anderon re
marked, when the accused would not
promise to obey the laws in the future,
that it seemed strange that all the time
they (the Mormons) were eirculatinc ab
surd claims through the press and in con
gress that polygamy is being abandoned.
They were proclaiming it abroad that
polycamy is not being practiced in Utah,
yet there was an unusually large number
of such offenders appearing at every term
for sentence nnd they would not even
promise to obey the laws. Their preten
sions of obedience proclaimed to the world
were made in bad faith.

Cressox Sprikgs. Pa.,SepU5. There is
every rea-on to believe that the president
is seriously considering the ndvisibilitv of
calling an extra session of congress. It is
known that several prominent Itepublicans
have advised such a course with a view to
an earlier consideration of the federal elec

the president on the subject say that he
will certainly reconvene congros-. if car

bill, the supreme court bill nud the labor
bills now in the senate nnd the postal
shipping bill now awaiting tho action of
the house. The president is known to bo
specially interested in the passage of the
election bill and would probably feel justi
fied in calling nn extra session.

FOR THE WORLD'S PAIR.
A Huge Sohomo fer Elevatod Railway Out
loU from Oaioago.
New York, Snt. 15. A dijMiteh frem
Chicago to the Journal of Finance Hst
A plan of magnitude for the relief of Citf
cago by providing an improved terminal
system for the arious iiiiea of rallroailH
which run into the city, lia Imhjii unilar
consideration by a uiimber of ennteni uwl
western capitalist for some utonthi. lb
has at last materialised and will lm put
into ojHjration at a time not far dtatnnt by
a corporation bearing tho name of the Chi
cngo FJevatvd Hallway company. The re
sults required, as indicated by the namu
of tho company, are to b accomplished by
nn elevated track system. It Mill cost a
vast amount of money to carry tho fllan to
completion, but tho cngitmrrs who Imvo
studieiFVhc-qut'stion are so eonlliittrrt that
the difficulties can tie averooniu that thero
is scarcely a doubt but that early and defi
nite action will be tnkon.
Statistics presented at a recent meeting
of the Society of American Engineers show
that th number of rwrftoiia killed within
tho corporate limits of Chicago each
year by the railroads eroding rtreet and
other railway line at grade is between
four and live hundred it annum, and it
i-t alo stated that onw of the chief rathray
systems uutcriug Chicago paid during tho
laet year $15MMM) for personal iHJitrttr
caused at grade crossings. It is jtroposed
that tho cleaUd track Mm II be carried
upon an inm r stl structure tbroach
the more thickly popubtW-d part of tho
city, and brick or stone arches at prtnta
where such structures can lx usotl at hot
ler advantage, as practiced in IftlfctQeJ
phia, Jersey City, and London attd otaar
European cities. It is propoeed to con
struct the line with lOU-pound alrel raUa,
so that the heaviest enKiMsriiBiila at tfce
highest rate of speed can enter thie city
from forty to fifty inlhw por howr If deatreil
without creating the siightost iweM
venlence or interruption to tb trattia or
business of othr railroad of the city.
It is also proposed to construct in eo
nection with this elevated mil way awl
terminal system, enclosed frvixht yard s
grade and using hydraulic lifte for two
transfer of the freight oars from the ele
vated tracks to the encloaed yartLi on the
street lerel, thus preventing the laying of
any more railroad tracks hctoom or waen
streets at grade The plan is to havetfrjtt
or ten rlevatod trucks running sotttk f oei
the union station to a point where thy
diverge, one line to the sontb awl one to
tho wont, each or tnn m-ergent JiMftsearry
ig from four to six elevated track. All
preliminary plans bavs been prepared o
that the work can Wgln at an riy data
