DALZELL LOSES 3 VOTES
Forty-two Absentees at the Session,
Nearly All of Thorn Being Paired.
Quay Still 13 Votes Shoit of on
Election Resolutions Adopted by
the Joint Assembly.
Special to tho Scranlon Tiilmue.
H.uilbbutf,', Jnn. 20. Senator Quay
v 111 bo re-elected It the judgment of
Governor Stone counts for anything.
The now executive declaies the friends
of Quay will stand firm for they fully
understand that the Indictments
against Quay wire only piocured to In
fluence votes. Governor Stone thinks
a reae tlon of public sentiment In Quay's
fnvor will stum take place.
The result of tor.aj's ballot on the
senatqia showed no brak In the fac
tional linos. If the deadlock Is to be
rent aMindcr In the near future theie
were no Indications In toda's returns
nnd the general opinion seems to be
that nothing staitllng will tiansplre
for a week at least. Neaily all the
principal liguies In the exciting con
test have gone home and it Is expected
that the attendance at the joint ses
sion tomonow -will be decidedly 5.11m.
An incident occurred In the house
this morning which was not overlooked
b the Democrats, v ho are expected by
the Independent Republicans to nsslst
them ir electing a United States sen
ator. When the report of the Repub
lican slate committee had been present
ed s oral Independents declared that
thev had not been consulted in the dis
tribution of the ol'ices and their wrath
was something fierce. Representative
Coiav, of I.uzerne, was of this num
bc. A substitute list was submitted
b the Democratic spokesman. Dixon,
of Elk, and the vote which followed
showed that the Independent clement
locked the courage to vote for a Demo
ciat for any of the small places. One
of the Democratic delegates comment
In';; on the matter declaied that It was
certainly Inconsistent on the part of
the Independents to ask the Democrats
to a" hem In defeating the caucus
not i f the Republicans for United
Stat at ii when they In turn would
not aid In the election of Democrats
to the most humble position.
It looks oiy much, therefore, ns If
when the Democrats break they will
pimply be guided by personal choice.
Theie I; no probability that any par
ticular candidate for the senatorshlp
will receive their united support,

legatee of tho Keely motor, who Is at
present engaged In experiment at Ja

Philadelphia, telling how an examina
tion of the inventor's workshop dis
closed tho presence of mysterious tub
ing from which It was surmised that
compressed air had been the force used
In Kecly's experiments, amounted to
nothing. Mr. Klnrald said that he was
in Philadelphia last week and while
theie visited the Keely place. "It did
not look any different to mo then than
It has) at any time since I first saw It,"
ho said, and added: "I told tho owners
of tho building at that time that It
would be unwise to leae tho mnbs
there, as It would create a lot of the
ories among those who might visit tho
building with a desire to make a sensa

Mr. Kinraid was asked If he would
say If It was tiue or not that theie was

forming an agency for the forces that

would not bo long In saying so."

Favor of Abandoning tho Philip
pinesLewis and Grosvenor In
dulge in a Lively Tilt.
Washington, Jan. 20. The tonate was
In session for five hours nnd a half to
day, but the session was practically
bairen of lesults. Two notable speeches
were delivered, one by Mr. Nelson
(Rep., Minn.) In opposition to Mr.
Vest's antl-expanslon resolution and
the other by Mr. White (Dcm., Cal.), a
personal explanation of his position
with lespect to the Instructions given
the California senators by the legls
latuio of that state as to voting oil the
pending pence tteaty.
At the conclusion of tho speeches, the
senate resumed consideration of the
Nlcaiagu.i canal bill. Its completion
was piuvented probably by the 1111
busterlng tactics" adopted by Mr. Till
man (Dcm, S. C), who frankly an
nounced that tho bill could not bo
passed today, a1 he and other senators,
If nccesMiiy, would 1 cm.ilu in the

The pioceedings in tho house wcro
enlivened today bv a wordy duel be
tween Mr. Gieisvelior, of Ohio, and Mr.
LewlB, the picturesque member from
Washington. Duilng the debate on n
ptlvate bill to lefer to the- couit of
c lalms the claim of Cramp & Sons, the
Philadelphia ship builders', for dam
ages fiom the government for delays
Incident to the building of the war
ships New Yoik, Massachusetts, Indi
ana anil Columbia, duo to the failure
of tho government to deliver aimor
plate anel other materials for these
ships on time, Mr. Lewis got the lloor.
The claims aggregated about $1,200,000,
and the bill had encountered a good
dfiil of opposition. Mr. Lewis made It
tho tet for a genet al attack on aimy
and nav contiactoi",whom he charged
with being tialtors for taking advant
age of the necessities of tho govern
ment in time of stress. Mr. Simpson,
the Knnsas Populist, followed along
the samo lines, and Mr. Grosvenor
undettook to rebuke them both. Mr.
Lewis, In leply, made one of the wit
tiest speeches), ridiculing tho Ohlolan
for his alleged pretensions, that has
been heaul In the house for months.
Mr. Grosvenor did not deign to mnko
an extensive rejoinder, though he dls
plajed a lot of documents and Inti
mated that he had plenty of leservo
ammunition In store for Mr. Lewis.
Tho Ciomp bill was edged out of tho
way after the flow of oratory ceased.

Mr. McMIUin, by appointing Mr. Rich
ardson, of Tennesse, to both places Mr.
Crumpacker, of Indiana, wae appoint

made for the consldeiatlon of the army
reoignnlzatlon bill beginning next
Tuesday. Fifteen hours are to be al
lowed for geneial debate, exclusive of
night sessions, Tuesday, Wednesday
and Thuisday nights. A night session
was held tonight for pension legislation
and the house then adjourned over un
Duilng the discussion of the Cramp
bill, Mr. Bingham, Republican, Penn
sylvania, called tho attention of the
gentleman from Kansas to the fact
that the Union lion works had a claim
pending. Thereupon Mr. Simpson said
he had no complaint to make against
the representatives from Pennsylvan
ia who weie pressing this bill. He read
ily undei stood their position. Men
were not elected to see things In Penn
sylvania. They were selected by cor
porations and they were compelled to
cairy out the wishes of those corpoia
tlons. "They must do that to hold
their Jobs," said he, amid laughter.
Mr. Grosvenor spoke of the effect of

of the people of tho Philippine Islands."
"I belong to a party," responded Mr.
Giosvenor, "that has always upheld
tho cause of llbeity."
"I thought the party belonged to
you," Interjected Mr. Carmaek.
"And I belong to a party," continued
Mr. Grosvenor, not noticing the Inter
ruption, "that has never pulled down
tho flag of liberty."
"You contend then," said Mr. Car
mack narcastlcally, "that the liberty of
these Islands was due to the Republi
can party and that the Republican
party proposes to collect that liberty
and own It."
"I desire to know," Interposed Mr.
Bailey (Dem., Tex ), "If this new cru
sade against liberty is to be a com
panion piece of the piesldent's recent
declaration about decorating tho graves
of Confederate soldiers."
"In the graven of the noble men who
fought in a mlstnken cause," replied
Mr, Grosvenor, "was burled the oppo

In a Liberal cablnent on two condi

reconstructed with his assistance and

Sagasta, after the debates when a new

Ho regards the present cabinet as ut
terly Incapable of undertaking the re

"The real Conservative party died.

THE ARMY STRENGTH.
It Will Probably Be Kept at Sixty

keep the regular army up to a strength
of C0.000 men,
So far fiS.OOO men have been gotten into
the ranks of tho tegular army under

Washington, Jan. 20. Tho stato do
paitment Is moving with duo deliber
ation, yet with firmness; respecting tho
adjustment of condition! in Samoa.
The publication of Incendlaiy nows
papor articles Is deprecated as calcu
lated to Interfere with an amicable and
fair settlement of the Important ques
tions ut issue, and the deoartment ii
directing all of its efforts now, as it hi-
in the pas:t, to tho use of lawful and
regular nieani to settle tho ttoublo
nt Apia. In fact, It was its inslstanco
upon the compllane o of all of tho par
ties to the trl-partlto treaty with thej
terms of thut document so long as it
stood undenounced and unamended,
tiat has made its position bo strong
legally at this Juncture.
There Is still a lack of oflicial reports
upon tho details of tho stirring events
at Apia. A brief statement of thoso
events has 1 cached the department
thiough tho United States dispatch
agent at San Fianclsco, but so far as
can be gathered it is not yet known
just why Chief Justice Chambers de
cided that Matuafa, the German can
didate for the succession to thu throno
of Samoa, was ineligible. It Is sus
pected heie that the decision vma based
on the use of Improper Influences by
outnide, but Inteiested, parties In tho
election of the king. That, If estab
lished, would bo sufficient to disqualify
Mataafa under tho strict terms of the
treaty, which expressly provides for
an untrammelled choice by the natives
according to their own established cus
toms. The United States government must
adhere to the terms of the treaty so
long as It stands, this being a duty Im
posed upon the government by tho
document itself, bo it is to be pre
sumed, in tho absence of an oflicial
statement, that the Instruction sent to
the United States consul general at
Apia, and perhaps also to Ambassador
White at Berlin, aro to be governed
by this understanding in any presen
tation of the case that it may bo neces
sity to make.
ORDERS TOR PHILADELPHIA.
The navy department orders to tha
Philadelphia c'ld not go out to Admiial
Kautz until today. Then they were in
the shape of instructions to take on a
full supply of coal and mako ready

an explicit order to start but simply
to moke leady. If tho admiral, as re
ported In the press dispatches, llndi
thathlsshlp's bottom Is so foul through
her ciulse in the southern vv.ateis as to
be unfit for tho voyage to Samoa, ho
ptobably will be authorized to use dl

ment has decided thut the ship shoulel
not be sent to the Mare Island navy
vnrd to bo fitted out. Theie will bo
about five days available in all prob
ability befote tho Philadelphia can

to ordei ChleC Engineer Bates from tho

All of the members of the cabinet
were present at today's meeting. Tha
situation In Samoa was under discus
sion, but in the absence of any official
or lato information, it Is thought no ac
tion will be taken at once beyond ask
ing for a conf'"'ivn''o between represen
tatives of tho three poweis, which hav j
concuirent juilsdlctlon over tho Islands
under the present tieaty. It was stat-
d that It must be presumed that what
ever ovett action was taken by tho
German consul in pia was not with
the knowledge or consent of his sover
eign, but rather was taken 011 his own
account nnd that such action, should It
bo found to amount to an unjust usur
pation of aulhoiltv under tho treaty,
will be promptly disavowed by tho Ger
man government. It Is believed that
tho confetence ef tho three powers will
bo held at Berlin at an early day.
