THE APPORTIONMENT BILL PASSED
BY THE SENATE.
The Bill the Same as dopted by the
House-Effoots to Increase the Nuimbor
Voted Down.-Kolly Flaunts the 1sloody
Shirt Which is Itesented by Several
WASHINGTON, Jan. 29.-In the -'en
ate at the close of the morning hour the
Senate proceeded to the consideration
of the apportionment bill as "unfinished
business," and Edmunds addressed the
Senate, calling its attention to the fact
that the bill took no cognizance what
ever of the provisions of the Fourteenth
Amendment to the Constitution, that in
case the right of suilrage be denied
or abridged in any State, the representa
tion of that State should be diminished
The Senate then proceeded to vote on
the amendments proposed by the mi
nority, the first being to increase the
representation of Arkansas from 6 to 7.
The amendment was rejected -yeas, 32;
nays, 33. All the Democratic Senators
voted for the amendment and were re
inforced by five Republicans-Senators
Davis, McMillan, Paddock, Stewart
The next amendment was to increase
the representation of Minnesota from 7
to 8-also rejected; yeas 31, nays 32.
On this vote Casey voted with the Dem
ocrats, of whom two less voted than on
the preceding vote.
The next amendment was to increase
the representation of Missouri from 15
to 16. Rejected; yeas 30, nays 38. The
only Republicans voting aye on this
amendment were Davis, Paddock and
Washburn. Casey, McMillan and Ste w
art voted no.
The next amendment was to increase
the representation of New York from :34
to 35. Rejected; yeas 30, nays 38,
Davis and Paddock being the only Re
publicans voting in the aflirmative.
Davis then withdrew the amendment,
fixing the total number of representa
tives at 360.
Berry offered an amendment fixing
the total number at 359 and giving ai
additional member to Arkansas, Minne
0sota and New York, and desired to have
it voted on as one amendment.
A division of it, however, was in
aisted on by Hale.
Hale then moved to lay the amend
ment on the table, and that motion was
agreed to-yeas 38 ; nays 29. The only
Republicans who voted in the negative
were Davis and Washburn.
Vest stated why he could not vote for
the bill. It was because a large amount
of the population in Missouri. Minnesota,
Arkansas and New York was left en
tirely without represenation.
Gorman also opposed the bill because,
as it has been reported, it showed that
. an error had been made in the city of
Y New York, were there was a deficit of
some 200,000 in the census returns, as
taken, and because he believes that
that State and the States of Arkansas,
- Minnesota and Missouri should each
have an additional representative. IlIe
thought that in fairness to all the appor
tionment should have. been left to be
made in the next session.
Jones of Arkansas declared his belief
t1at for his State the census returns
were very defective, and that if' the
truth were known Arkansas had p)opi
lation enough to entitle her to seven
Morgan spoke of the necessitiy of a
specific declaration in the bill that the
number of Presidential electors in 1892
shall correspond with the number of
Representatives lixedl in the bill. Th'le
-country hadl hiad enough of trials and
troubles and difliculties in connect,ion
( with Presidential elections to admomishi
Congress to exercise the most extreme
care in the matt.er andl to make thie lawv
'perfectly clear and definite.
The bill was then p)assedl exactly as if.
came from the IIouse-y'eas 37, nays 24
a strict part,y vote.
There was ciuite a rowv in the IIouse
to-day. Matters ran very smoothly fo,r
awhile, until the murder of Matthews,
the postmaster at Carrolton, Miss., was
brought up by Kelly in a speech in which
he certiGled somne formail remarks made
by Lewis, of Mississippi. iIe denied
(as slated by Lewis) that the murdeir of'
Matthews was attributable toothIer' th ani
political causes. iIe had the aut.hority
to say that Matthews had been killed be
cause lie was a llepublican. The gen-.
tieman from Mississippi premisedi his
remarks with a qulotation to the effect
that nothing butt goodl should( b)e said of
the dea<f and1( hiad heaped slanders uploni
the deadh man which lie would not have
-heaped hlad the man been living, Ile
'(Kelly) dleniedl the statements miade by

Flower said that lie hadl heard till
'gentleman from Kansas make speeches
pitching Into the distinguished gentle
man frem Arkansas (fire.ckinrnfge.)
'That gentleman had been r'e.turnied to
'ongress while the constituents of' the
gentlemian from Kansas had tuirned hium
dIown. The more of such speeches the
gentleman fromn Kansas made. the bet,temr
it would be f.or the D)emocratic party.
Lewis, in reply, said that while the
people of the whole country were en joy
ing 1,.e privileges of constitutional
liberty, the r tentorian~ and stricken voice
'of' the gentleman from Kansas wasH
.heard,crying, "Murder ! murder !"'
''Call tihe police !"' ejaculated Spiinoia,
in a voice of' Modoc terror, and1 the con
trast between the eariiest voice of' Lewis
-and the timorous voice of' Spinola was
.so apparent that for some miomencits
Lewis was unable to p)roceedh on acconuf.
-of tihe laughter.
Lewis, continuing, said that, in the
self-confidence and swvift witness in
every killing that had occurred in Mussis
sippi and Arkansas the gentlenman f'rom
Kansas had sought to create the impres
sion that the people of these States were
in rebellion against the Constitution and
laws of thme United States.
Kelly--"IIe has proved it."
'Lews-"I want to say to hun that he.
is In rebellhon against tihe mandate of'
'the people as pronounced at the last
November election. I want to say that
lie Is in rebeilioi against his own con
stituents, who have relegated him to the
shades of private hife. I want to say
tha.t .he is inl rebellionl a111an1iSt thle peCOpIC
of Kansas, who have just spokeu and
whose voice has filled the cathedral of
this hemisphere, bit which has fallen
unheeded on his deaf ear.
Kelly said that lie was not here to
tradlice the character of any man. Ilie
was defendin-g the character of the Re
publicanls of the South who had been
killed because thev were Iepublicans.
IIe was sorry thal Mis.sissippi could not
furnish a manl on this floor with enough
of justic, in him to save him (Kelly) tle
trouble of doing so.
Hooker said that lie was getting a
little tired of the broad cast acCUsations
made against the people of Mississippi
before a tribunal which hlad not, the
power to try Ihem. Ile protested against
the raising of sectional animosity.
Cannon attempted to put an end to
the political di.cigsion by calling atten
tiou to the absolute uecessity of the
speedy passage of tle appropriation
bills, but his remarks had little ell'ect,
the controversy being transf'erred from
Mississippi to Tennessee, Williams of
Ohio critici4 ilg and Richardson defeid
mng the conduct, of Senator IIarr1q.
After a rather stormy scene between
the chairman (McCoinas) and Breekin
ridge of Arkansas pertaining to the
question of recognition, the committee
rose and reported the bill to the House.
.No utlorii appearig the House with
out disposit in of the bill adjourned.

THIRD PARTY MOVEMENT.

ator Ingalls' Defeat.
NiEv Yoitic, Jan. 31.-A short tim
ago there was news that the action o
the third party boomers throughout ti
country would be governed, in a larg<
measure, by the result of the grea
struggle over Ingalls in Kansas. ifr t(
Farmers' Alliance could not control t(
politics of' a state in which it had .
heavy majority of tle voters, It wouh
have no prospect of success in a nationa
movenict; 'but if, on the other hand. il

be proof fhat the time had arrived fot
the organizition of'a new party in t(
Kansas was the pivotal state, and
there the signal was to be hoisted. The
Alliance had shown itself' to be all pow.
erful in several southern states; but
there was an imperative necessity that
it should win a triumph in tle north,
Its succees at Topeka this week is, there

that tle four states of Kansas, Nebraska,

AN ALLIANCE SENSATION.
Tho Store at Spamrtaiburg Cauge no Ent
D of Trouble.
SI'ARTANHUM; S. C., February. 1.
The County Alliance met here yester
day and were in session several hours.
'I'liir deliberations were behind close(d
doors and outsiders know little of what
was going on. It is well known, how
ever that the "Alliance stores" at this
place and Clifton were discussed.
A bout, a month ago the Alliance had a
statement from their couuty bi-iness
arent, W. Mc Zimmerman, which was
dI apparently satisfactory to them. They
s iliposedI some restricting regulations V
f on him, and authorized him to visit the
t Alliances anl get up a joint stock com
a !any so that he might conduct his bus- t
,f ines on a cash basis. IIe made the f
r. rounds of the county, but did not get
y the needed help. Meantime claims
e against the Alliance store began to
. come in and one creditor from Atlanta,
r. who had sold at stock of clothing to the
f store, came over and packed up the un
y sold clothing and carried it back. It
became evident to the public that a
e crisis was near at hand, and the Alli- t
anCe yesterday seemed anxious to have
o an interview vith Mr. Zimmerman, but
L lie was out Of town. After waiting
p till about 5 o'clock tliey adjourned. e
(I Mr Zimmerman caine in from the Clif
s ton store abou t 1 o'clock.
y A Ifairs are in a peculiar condition. t
M Mr. Zimnerian is the county business
t, agent. IIe has been cond tiding the af- V
l lairs of the Aliance for more than a
year. His acts have been recognized t
- by the Alliance in its county meetings. 1
e Ihe guano trades were conducted
e through him last season. Now the
q luestion as to responsibility in all
these transactions comes tip. Some of
y the Alliance men seem to think that
(I no one is respoisible except Mr Zim
i-iermnan and that all creditors will
e have to look to him for pay. A few
I of them are a little nervous and are
afraid that the Alliance will have to
pay the claiins. Some of the creditors
d are- sitting with folded hands, becatie
they cI im that the Alliance will have
e to pa allt debts of their authorized
r Aigent lt'liey were doinr business as it
firii anld had recognized Mr Ziminer
- man -ts their agent and had in their
I various metings endorsed his buying
and selling goods. Taking that view
t oU the case these creditors say they are
* sure of their money with all costs and
e intterests. Then in the case of suits in
the Court the (Itiosition assiumes an
other very important phase. All mem
g ors of the Alliance would be interest
ed in the suit. In fact they would be
e parties to it. They could riot serve as
>d jurors. By excluding then and all
ti) persons i SVIlPathiv with thlem, it
s wouli be ditlicult to get a jitry. The
m prObabilit y is that some creditor will
re bring suit in the United States Court,
h so as to take the inatter out of this
r, county. I L is getting to be a very in
h, teresting affair.
le Mr Zimierman claimed a few (lays
>n ago that the liabilities of the Alliance
t- stores woul aiount to aboitt $10,(XK),
vt while the assets were S11,00. The
Ie store has not been closed by any of the
creditors, because they expect to get
k, their pay from the Cotunty Alliance.
i The ollicers of the Alliance did not take
e. eharge of the store, because they say
iti t hey are not. responsible. It is an ano
>1* lmaious business condition that coii
ii fronts the County Alliance.-News and
