Postponed by the
"WisHIXGToy, Feb. 16 ThedonatfonRof
the western farmers nnd millers to the
starving millions of Riibsia have at least
served oue practical purpose. They served
as a bludgeon to the cold men of the house
today to oppose for five hous the steady
march towards free coinage legislation.
The bilver issue is indeed to the front now,
and the anti-free coinage men are congrat
ulating themselves touight on having won
a victory in the firstprehmiuary sklrmisn.
In the parliamentary struggle of tod.iy pol
itics had noplace.thefillibusterars and their
opponents being alike members of the
Democratic party. Mr. Tracey of New
York led the fight against the considera
tion of the resolution authorizing the
transportation o food donations to the
starving Russians, but he did it, not so
much because he was opposed to the
spirit of the resolution as because he de
sired to keep as many measures as possible
on the calendar as unfinished business and
in the way of the Bland free coinage bilL
The morning hour was consumed in dis
cussing a bil to permit the railroads to
give reduced rates tocommercial travelers.
The bill went over until tomorrow.
As there appeared to be no prospect of
the house's transacting any business, ilr.
Caruth moved an adjournment, but the
motion was lost.
Mr. Burrows moved to proceed to the
consideration of unfinished business.
The speaker pro tern. (Mr. Dockery)
stated th.tt the calendar showed that tho
first unfinished business was the motion
made by Mr, Kilgoro to table the motion
to reconsider the vote by which the house
indefinitely postponed the seriate joint
resolution authorizing the secretary of the
irivy to transport contributions for the re
lief of the Buffering poor of Russia.
After mucu discussion as to whether
the motion had been properly placed on
the calendar of unfinished business, Mrr
Tracey enme forward in the role of a filli
busterer, with a motion that the house
take a recess for an hour.
Pending this, Mr. Owens moved nu ad
Ou Mr. Tracey's motion no quorum
voted on n standing vote, aud Mr.
Tracey haviug r.ii-ed this point, tellers
were ordered. On the vote by tellers h
quorum appeared (after n weary wait),
aud then Mr. Tracey demanded the yeas
and nays. By this time the members who
at first were in the dirk as to Mr. Tracey's
object had been informed, and a sufficient
number of the opponents of the free coin
age bill were mustered to order the yeas
A motion for a reces was defeated,
many of the opponents of the silver bill
withholding their votes, in the hope of
banking the quorum.
Immediately upon the announcement of
the vote, Mr. Tracey made a motion to ad
journ. The motion to adjourn was defeated,
and the question recurred on tho motion
to table the motion to reconsider the vote
bv which the Russian relief resolution
j was indefinitely postponed. It was tabled

"SILVER DOLLAR" BLAND.
"WASIUXGTOX, Feb. 16. Mr. Bland, the
leader of the silver men, ays that there
was no occasion for Ollibustering in the
house today, but that some of the mem
ber of the hou'-e seem to go wild when
ever they imagine, for any reason, that
the silver bill is in some way or other to
come forward. The silver question, he
said, seemed to give ome of its opponents
the hydrophobia. There was no idea of
help ug silver or of forcing it to thf front
in the motion made. Mr. Culberson
wanted to get to the calendar to take up
tl e bill toamei.d the law relative to the
charges of judges to juries Mr. Tracey
and other, he added, semed to fear that,
by some hocupocus, the silver bill might
be taken up, and. they were therefore
fighting the matter. Mr Bland Intimated
that he did not propose to do anything at
present on the silver bill.
"Mr Catchings is away," said be, "and
the silver men do not intend to proetit
their invitation to the rul9 committee,
a-xking for a special order for the silver
bill until bis return, when there will be a
full committee on rules lam confident
that we will ultimately get a special rule
from the committee, and ve expect to
await their decision. Whether or not it
will be given before the tariff Is taken up,
I cannot ay "
On this question, of which subjtct
tariff or fiher shnll b first taken up. It
is evident that the Democrats are greatty
divided Xo conclusion will be reached
with reference to it for some day , and,
meanwhile, the auti -silver men believe
that the greater the delay they can secure

THE OPTIONS INQUIRY.
WAsniKGTOK, Feb. ia Dr. C. W.
Macune of the Farmers' Alliance today
addressed tho house committee on agri
culture in . favor of the anti-options bill.
The bill, he said, did not interfere with the
legitimate "future-" dealer, but only
with the dealer in "futures" who under
took to manipulate the marker. In his
opinion there was no question that the
present svstem was bad for the producer.
Before the crop was put into the ground
the speculator fixed the price und went off
to Europe. bou he got back he held it
there from time to time. The brokers'
commisMous on all the variou- transac
tions, he asserted, came out of the pro
ducer and consumer. The members of the
Chicago board of trade, he said, had as
serted that the speculator paid theae com
missious. But that was absurd; tne simu
lators did not "eat each other;" they
made monev only by "catching suckers."
Mr. Lewis asked whether he thought
the producer or tho cousumer should con
trol the price.
Dr. Macune thought that the producer
J. A. Brilliant of Iowa, master of the
Grange, said that the farmer knew
n the first that ho had drouth, ram
and other adverse conditions to mevX. lie
had now learned that ho had also to con
tend with combinations which might
make all his labors unprofitable. The
farmers knew that it was easy for boards
of trade to array on their side the banking
interests and also the pre-s of the country.
For 60ine time a certain class of men had
assumed a sort of guardianship over the
farmer, but the farmer bad now come to
the conclusion that he could look out for
his own interests.
WASHiyGTOV, Feb. tlG.-Mr. Vance, from
the finance committee, reported back ad
versely the b 11 introduced by Mr. Gibson
of Louisiana to provide lin income tax to
pay pensions and tlicsnlaTieM of solicitors
Mr. Vance stated that the senato had no
constitutional power to o-isinate such a
measure. The bill was indefinitely post
poned. The senate then passed a bill appropri
ating $G0 000 for the construction of t mili
tary storehouse at the Omaha (Neb ) mili
tary depot, and also a bill appropriating

The senate then resumed consideration
of the urgent deficiency bill.
Mr. PetTer moved to lticreaso tho i'em
for the census work of the division of
farm, homes and mortgages from $50,000
to $100 000.
Mr. Ilale opposed the amendment.
The amendment was rejected and then
