WASHINGTON, Jan. 31.?The House
pTRepresenUrtlves today tu Sei th T 1
ler resolution, declai ing the bonds of
the United States payable in stiver, un?
der an adverse majority of 50 votes.
The Repub.icar.s were solidly . riayed
jn opposition, with two exc I t Mr.
Dinn.-y. of North Carolina, who voted
wr:h the Democrat's and- (Populists, and
Mr. White, of North" Carolina, the o.-.ly
colored member of the Huos-. who an?
swered "present" when his name was
ca.led. The "icsertions from the Demo?
cratic sidy were Mr. MoAleer. of 1 enn
eylvanta, and Mr. Elliott, of South Car?
olina. Both voted with ine Repu'ol.ean:
againi't the proposition. Speaker tve?d,
although it is hol customary for him to
tots-, had his name called and amid th(
cheers of his followers went on r :ord
In opposition to the res dution. Tin
vote was reached after five hours of d.
?bate under a special ord^r adopt d a
the opening of the session today. The
limited, lime allowed for debute and thi
pressure! of members for an opportunity
to be hear! was so great t.oat the leali
ers on beAh sides were compelled t
form out the'.r time by minutes. This
detracted much from the continuity of
the discussion, but also, in a measure,
intensified the interest. The galle.ie;
were crowded all day long and the com?
batants on th floor were cheered ?!>>
Itheir respective sympathizers. 'Many ol
the iSe-ators from the other end of th>
cajpltol were also present to listen to thi
arguments. Tiie majority, under the
leadership of Mr. .Dingh y, who made a
carefully .p.oparedi sp.uch sounidlng tlo
keynote of the opposition, assumed th,
position thai the last clause of ;h._ r s
olution was in reality a disguised dec?
laration.' for tl.v> free coinage of silver,
while the assaulting Democrats, undet
the dlr-ction of Mr. Balky, maintained
tha't the defeat of the resolution was an?
other step in the direetioii of the estab.
Itehment of tb>? gold standard, to whi r
th*y,all g d both the President and Sec.
retary Gage h'a 1 irrevocably committed
the Republican pa- ty. The debate was
at times fast and heated, hut there w r.
no sensational incidents beyond the
hissing of Mr. Rhea, of Kentucky, when
he said that as the authoi of the "Crim.
of '7::" th;;'hottest place in Hade? would
be reserved for the present secretary of
state. T.ve vote on the resolution was:
Ayes, 192; nays. 1S2.

the reading of the journal when Mr
Dingo .v. of Maine, chairman of the ways
and means committ. e, reported ba :k i ii

that "it do not pass."
Mr. Henderson (Republican), of 1 .wa
one of the leaders of the majority. fol
lowed this by presenting th- special ol?
der agrtied upon by the committee on
rules, providing for the ImmeJiote con
sideration of the resolution, and a vot
without Intervening motion at 5 o'elocl

"A dry dock Is to be built by private

in this connection that Newport
