Preached Agntnst John D. Uockereltsr.
The Ilev. Dr. Daniel C. Potter, pastor of
the Tabernacle Baptist Church In Second nvo
nun, did not appear yesterday In the Supremo
Court, where a suit oter 131,000 Northern Pa
cine bonds. In which he Is concerned, was on
Justice Brekman's calendar. In somo way n
story got about that ho had Bout an affidavit
thnt he was unablo to leavo his homo, since
If he did so hn would not be permitted to re
turn, nnd his enemies would come Into posies
slon of his papers and personal property. Ho
was, according to tho story, virtually a pris
oner l.t his own houvi, a guard being set ovor
It by the Baptist City Mission Society, who
refused tu allow visitors to seo the clergyman,
and frankly told him tht It he went out he
would not b allowed to come In ogalti.
N'osue.h aflldatlt was received in court, but
n reporter ftr The Sum who tried to call on
Dr. Potior teiteruar ofternoon found tho con
ditions nlnnt tlio building In which bellies,
adjoining the Tabernacle, pretty much to tho
effect described. A whlto-hnlred doorkoeper
stood before tho door. There was a rattle of
the door knob from the lnslle. The guard un
locked the door.went Into tbo tostlbule.stepped
behind a toungtnnn tbero who had Just come
down stairs, lot tho young man out, following
him closly, nnd locked the door again. The
toungmnn was ono of Dr. Potter's sons, who
hnd been permitted to go up stairs to getnny
nf his belongings thnt he might choose, being
told that after he came down ho would not be
lot up again.
"Is Dr. Pctter up stairs?" the reporter asked.
"Second window," said tho scutlnel.
"C'nn I seo the Doctor!"
"See llogers." came the answer, and again:
"Second window, there."
At tho second window In the neighboring
basement John llogers nppearcd, upon call,
nnd said that his business there and his orders
were to keep everybody who called out of the
building, nnd lf Dr. Potter or any nt those In the
building with htm came out not tn allow them
In ngaln. Hts orders enme from his employ
ers, the Baptist City Mission Society, through
I-awyrr Ednard S. Clinch, ho said.
"We've been trying to gel the Doctor out
eier since lat fall," ho raid, "but he won't
go. We'te cot most of tho other tenants out.
but ho nnd two others, a Mrs. Boss. I believe,
and some man whose name I don't recall, are
stilt up there. The grocer and tho butcher
bavo been nllowod In the house heretofore, but
to-day we stiunmd them. Now. nobody can
go up. Some man got up this morning wl.on
I wnm't here, and I seems now that It must
have been the Doctor's lawjer. The man
had some tnxes with him. and he said be
wnnted to belt) the Doctor pack up his things."
llogers turned and rebuked Ids assistunt,
John Murphy, who had been etidutyat tho
ttne. .Murphy bus been employed thcro for

llogers said, hail been sent tu him only tester
dav morning, and llogers didn't knuw hts
name. He said that there was at least ono
other watcher In tbo neighborhood, and l.e
didn't know how many ninrr. That one. an
ex-polloi-mnti. ho hod detected by his actions
across tbo w ay.
"And I know he's In with the liosses." tnt
In Murphy. "I was remrted when I went
around the corner to buy some oil for our
lamps here. They said I went iutoasalnon."
llogers looked quickly at hint. "Oh. not"
he said, reasittrtnglv. Bogers said that ho

was tn watch the rer of the building; In fact,
all sides, to seo what secret means of com
munication with the outer world Dr. Potter
hnd, for be seemed to hue some, for ho hud
cot out on Sunday and preached In the
Welh Church. It wns not Intended that tho
preacher should get out to prra;h nn Sutidat.
or. If he did get out. It war most certainly the
Intention :n prevent him from getting back,
llogers said; but In sntue way unknown tn thu
watchers :he reverend gentleman hvl got out
and got In again, and now tbeiiuesl was to
find the way nnd block It.
Two renorters called Dr. Poller to 'n win
dow and askod him It he would write and
drop to them any statement he desired to
make. In the ennrse of a few minutes an en

the second-story window, but. like thn clergy
man, It seemed inath tn leaiethn building, fur
It sturk mi a lodge of the projirllng nrched
roof of tbo estlbule, srhrnee It was dislodged
nfter several futile efforts, 'iblch wero
watched with nil the Interest that somo store
of school children ran roureiitrato on such an
occurrence. The crowd of children who lined
upngalnst the fonre wen not without adult
companions, ami altogether that nnrt of toc

The Doctor was out. Tho reporter waited half
or three-quarters of an hour for him to return,
and then started to leave. As he reached the
head of tho stairs to go down. Dr. Potter came
In at the frontdoor, which opens on t'jn street,
and walked upstairs. Dr. Potter had been out

The three men guarding the houso Inst night
took turns going Into tbo basement to got warm.
They had a lire burning In a little stove which
thev had carried Into the basement, and mude
themselves as comfortable ns possible under
tho circumstances. I'pstulrs l)r. Potter wns
without u lire, as the coal had been locked up
out of his reach,
I'utll Saturday last. It was stated, the heaters
had been kept (nlng. ono of tho Potter bo) 8

Poller by deiuuudliig to seu his engineer's li

from the steam plant. After that. It la said, the
coal bins were locked up.
Tho gas company had shut off tho gas at tho

to burn In the house last night. A caudle and
an oil lamp wero In use upon the floor held by

WABlllsnTti.t, Jan. A. Senator Cameron of j ' ' I
Pennsylvania, tho titular author of the report t? $
of the Porelgn Relations Comuilttco In support j jj .,
of his resolution recngntlng tho Independence J a
of Cuba, prevented by his ahsouce tho calling up i
of the resolution In tho Senate to-day. Noolher Ifa Ij
biisliHss was on the programme, nnd so tho Sen- 3E '
ntcadjuurnid after Senator PrlTcr had read a fflpl I
long statement In support of the proposition for t
a monetary conference. ,!, I
About a fortnight ago Senator Cameron, with IM .fl
a company of gentlemen front Washington, th g
went to South Carolina, whore he has a bouse jj P
near the ocean, nnd no one, not even bis private aj i;
secretary, knew when the Sonnlo met to-day flj
how soon ho would return. Ills colleagues, X II
especially tho.e who aro members of the Com- fl Pa
mltleo un l'oreign Belatluus, naturally supposed Jffi 'j
that be would be lu his seat when tho Senate re- , M j!f
assembled this afternoon, and wero verr much ') jft ji-
chugrliicd to Unci that ho was not. An In- V 7t Uf
formal conference was held nt once, and It was ( '9 fill
decided not to call tip the Cuban resolution L JI
during the Senator's absence, und It Is uow uu- 18 r!fl
certain when it will get beforo the Senate. U F'b
The opponents ot Ctho resolution were greatly n I
elated ut Mr. Cameron's lack of Interest, and U i.jj
openly boasted that the failure to consider tha J5 81 ,
resolution to-day means that tho "bottom lias i . 8 ' Jm
fallen out of tha Cuban cause In the Senate." j 'Bjcfffl
This is not true, but even tho friends ot tha I JaTllai
Cameron resolution admit that by falling to 1 Bk-
call It up for action to-day they missed a good KM
opportunity to get It beforo tho Senato and tha Mil
country, so that It might be discussed and dls- " H9
posed of beforo the great pressure of saflrll
appropriation bills and other routine 2 aVfl
business shall begin. It Is nuiv plainly V aHrlS
the purpose of thn anti-Cuban Senators , 9HjM
to adopt such tactics to postpone action and de- aWJll
feat If possible the Cameron resolution as wns aVrEl
practised In 1S0U by tho opponents of the bill to Hn
repeal the sliver purchase act, and were used t Hsfl
alaotu postpone Indefinitely nt tho last session ! Hn
the resolution of the Committee on Porelgn HJB
Affairs In support of the application of the sBTfl
Monroe doctrine to the Venezuela controversy. j Wfi nt
The plan In brief Is to havo an appropriation ,1 Vf yfl
bill or seme other measure that Is entitled to ?!
the right of way ready for the attention of tha m M
Senate whenever an attempt Is mado to bring nE' )
up the Cuban resolution. jS 91
Thero are now but forty-nine working days mt jfl
left to the Kitty-fourth Congress. Including ona j K3
or two holidays, and the friends of Cuba realize V S
that under ths elastio rules ot thn Senate the 9f O
time is all tou short for the passage of a mess- lK S
suro that meets with strong and active opposl- I ffi II
tlon. The friends of the Cameron resolution, i WWiM
however, realize that at present they mutt I flHll
make haste slowly. If at all. for they think It ' J. Met sal
would be a short-sighted policy to attempt to 'J jBII
force tho passage ot the resolution In the face I. ' Hil
of such determined opposition as will be mads S fln'al
un tho Ilepubllcan side ot tho chamber A jHjlfl
by Senators Hale. Hoar, Aldrlcb. and I fWil
other influential leaders. It Is probable, f fr-Ntl
therefore, that no definite steps will tie ' fjHll
taken toward bringing the resolution be- ji SBffl
fore the Senato until the Committee on Pur- j
elgn Relations has held another meeting, tc H-
talked over the situation lu the light of recent Ull Bfl
developments, and made en estlmaHToT'Oit" rlfV f W1V
strength of tho Cuban cause In the Sonate. It "J ijiiBr fl
Is even possible that a motion will be made to ? iBt' U
recommit tho resolution to ths Foreign Beta- 11 9k' 9
tlons Committee In order that It may be ro- j ); M
ported back accompanied by some declaration 99.!. lei
as lo the power of Congress to compel the Ki- HKS w

should the two Houses Instruct hlm to do so. &aV lal
Thero Is likely to be more or lets discussion of !j Bf J9
the general Cuban queitlon In the Senate to- ,' HB, )9J
morrow, however. In spite ot the un.ence of . ! jn M
Senator Cameron, and notwithstanding the In- Kljl
formal agreement of the members of the For- &Tci
elgn Ilelntlous Commltten that the resolution HrXfl
can bo passed, If at all, only by the most dlplo. flu !
instlc kind of logrolling. Instead ot by the mora BE $9
vigorous plan of forcing it to a voto at the HP; IM
earliest possible moment In spite of all opposl- flK fl
tlnn. Mr. Call stated to-duy that ho would flfc: fl
make some remarks to-morrow on his retain- tVpfB
tlons offered at to-da)'s session, calling on ths Ifej jjM

Is not certain, however, that In the discussion (rlaP 4
that will arln from Senntor Call's remarks, the KsaH '
direct question involved In the Cameron reso- PCi'dl
lutlon will be touched upon. '1 he Call resnlu- 3JPf J -m

It Is very well known that one ot the argu- ' 'it u 3ei
ments used by the pro-Spanish Senntors to I 'i'lt
