Governor Tillman, whe asked abot
the matter yesterday, said it seeme<
from e.ll he could ascertain, that a moi
cold-blooded murder had been coimi
ted. The uegro had been called out an
shot down in his own door by a party <
masked men near Gaston. IlIe says 10
negroes are considerably wrought u
over the mattor, and say that besidc

to the Governor for advice. The Gover

the good wbite people of that section c
the country would aid them. Ile tol
them that they had the right to delen
their homes from attack, but advisei
themtnot to precipitate a riot. Th
G.overnor sayn he has written to th
trial justice for that section and intend
to offer a good reward for the detentio
and capture of the murderers.
Governor Tillman concluded h, inai

:1 LYNCunUno, Va., Feb. 17.-The
Lynchburg News will print a private
letter to-morrow, received here from
Persia, relating a shocking instance of
swift and extreme vengeance on the
part of the Shah's government, at the
instance of Minister McDonald, in be
half of the American missionaries.
One of their number, Rtev. E W. St.
J Pierre of Oroomia, while riding home
from the couunty late in the evening,
when within a little more than a milo
3 of the town, was halted and seized by
some ruflians, was dragged him into
a adjoinog woods and treated him in a
most unmerciful manner. With fire
r arms and swords pointed at his breast,
r lie was forced, under the threat of in
stant death, to surrender all the money
and other valuables which he had about
him and more was denanded under
a penalty of his life. Having no more to
give, Mr. St. Pierre told them to kill
3 him it once, if they intended to, as he
t was a Christian and not afrid to die.
. Then they roughly treated him again
a stripping him of his clothing in the bit
ter cold, and left him half dead, saying
t that if he moved from where he was in
d so many minutes lie would be shot.
e When (he tirre had expired the outraged
man dragged himself to the road and
f linally reached home in a deplorable
condition, where he was kindly cared
for. The facts of the case were im
' mediately reported to the American
S Minister at Teherana, who promptly
c fai it before the Prime Minister with
0 a most urgent demand that prompt and
.r vigorous measures be taken for the ar
a rest and punishment of the cirminals
- who had so brutally maltreated his
o countryman. The Prime Minister re
t ported that no effort would Lie spared to
bring the malefactors to punishment.,
and immediately telegraphed a peremp
t ory order to that effect to the proper
officials at Oroom ia. The answer came
quickly that his orders had been obeyed;
that the robbers, four inl number, who
proved to be notorious outlaws, had
been capiured after a stout resistance
r and put to death. This summary and

reached.
After prayer and the reading of the
journal. lleed suggested that a report
was in order from the Sergeant at-Arms
respecting his actions under the order
to arrest absentaes so that the House
might know how the poll stood. Col
onel Snow thereupon reported that all
absentees were either in the city or en
route hither, except the sick and ex
cused ones, and seven who have been
sent for by authorized deputies.
Reed: " Has the gentleman from
Ohio, (Johnson) who is reported in a
Cleveland telegram this morning to be
so defiant of the authority of the
House, been sent for ?"
The Speaker : "1 Tie Chair is iu
formed that a deputy has been sent to t
arrest him. "
(Johnson is quoted as saying lie
would not regard a summons to re
turn.)
Reed : "Are any of the itepresenta- t
tives here under arrest ? "
Snow : " There have been no further
arrests "
Reed : " I should like to ask, why ?
you had no difficulty in arresting half
a dozen Republicans. "
Snow . "Mr. Speaker, I would like
some information. Am I expected to
arrest members upon the floor of the
Ilouse ?"
The Speaker "The Sergeant-at
Arms is expected to exechte the war
rants presented to him. "
The Sergeant at-Arms retired to car
ry out his instructions and the commit
ttes were called for reports.
When the list had been concluded,
Bland asked unanimous consent that.
members under arrest be excused with
out being brought before the bar of the
House.
Reed "1 shall have to object. Our
members were paraded here in front,
and we want to see yours."
The Sergeant-at-Arms, not being
ready to report, Bland moved to go into
committee of the whole on his bill to
coin the seigniorage of the Treasury
silver bullion, and on that motion, de
manded the previous question.
Without a division on ordering the
previous question on his motion, Band
called for the yeas and nays. and they
ware ordered. The vote resulted :
Yeas, 159 ; nays, 11-nine l ss than a
quorum. The following Republicans
voted with the bulk of the )emocrats
in favor of the motion of land: Bowers
of California, 3roderick of Kansas,
Funston of Kansas, Hlartmon of Mon
tana and Vilson of Washington-5.
Also the following P'opulists : Baker
of Kansas, Bell of Colorado, Rowen of
Minnesota, lhavis of Kansas, KOrn of
Nebraska, Pence of Colorado and
Simpson of Kansas-8.
Tne negative vote was made u1p of
11el1'zhoover of' l'eninsylvamia, Cobb of
M~issouri, Eyerett oi Massachusetts,
Ihail of Mlinnesota. Mc Aler of Penn
svlvania, O'N eill of Alassachusetts,
ligott of Connecticut, Itusk of Mary
land, Sickles of New York and Wolver
ton or P'ennsylvania-all Democrats.
At the announcement of thle result,
Bland moved a call or the llusie,
which was ordered. It showed 271.
niembers in the hall. 'Thei proceedings
under the call wecre dispensed with and
another vote began.
The second vote resulted: Y eas 157,
nays 10. This was a loss of three from
the lirst vote arnd twelve short of a
It was stated at the desk (Informally)
that at the time the first roll call was
mad', there were nine proaliver Rep
resentatives in the llouse or the corrn
(dors, who failed to vote. The addition
of that number to thle vote would have I
prod ucedl a qluorum..
Bland made the luotion to order a l
call of the flouse, whereupon Reed in
terjectedi: "It seems to me that the
llouse might hotter occupy this time
in discussing thie bill, than in wasting
it as the gentleman from Mlissouri per
sists in doin1g."
McMillin (Deom.) of 'rennessee: "And
when wiil the gentlemun from Maine
agree to vote?"
Reed: ',When we get through."
McMillin: "And when will that be ?"
'Reed: "Why, when we have fInished'
of course. TIhe idea that these ge'ntle- C
men have the tall of the situation in~
their hands before we shall be allowed
to (debate the subject is all wrong. Thel t
c.istom is for the body to debate a thing
until they get through with it. (Cries
of "regular order.") TIhat is what we
are trying to (do; andi it. is a shame that 9
we canniot be allowed to (10 it,. (Ife
nuewed cries of "order.") by an impotent
body that cannot furnish a quorum."
At this point, Speaker Crisp dhircted
the~ reporters not to take niot~e of the'
colloquy proceedirg out of ordler.a
"Gentlemen cannot," he said, "miakeo
statemaents out of' order and hope to
get them in the record."
Roed remarked that the Speaker was
entirely correct andt he hoped t hat the
ruling would be enforced.
The 'Jhair: "'It will be."
On Bland's motion t.o order a call of C
the Ilouse, Reed asked for tellers and '
having securedl them, lBlandl demanded
the yeas andl nays, thus ihtroducing a
variation of the routine of filibusting c
and slightly complicat~ing the situiation, t
On the motion to ordler a call of the (1
llouse, the yeams were 161 and the nays I
35; and the call was begun. Another g
twist was given the proceedings upon
this call of the Hlouso. WVhen the Cler i
had called the list of names once Bland -
asked himn if the presence of a quorum;1
had( been disclosed, and learning that'
223 members had answered to their
names, moved that further proceedings 1
be dispensed with, A divmion of~he
I tellers and Bland demanded that
yeas and nays be taken. The dem
was seconded by a sufficient num
and the call of the roll was made.
By a vote of 176 to 21 the House i
ed to dispense with further proceedI
under the call and again the roll 1
called for a vote on Bland's motior
go into committee of the whole on
seIgnorage bill. It resulted: Yeas I
nays, 4-the smallest vote of the day
Bland moved that the House
jourv, but Talbott (Dam.) of Maryla
moved to amend by adjourning over
morrow, Washington's birthday. T
evoked a passionate declaration fr<
Bland that until the Democratic pal
would provide a quorumn to do busint
it should not fritter away its time
holidays. lie then made the point I
in the absence of a quorum a moti
to adjourn over a day was not in ord
wlich point the speaker sustained, ai
put liland's motion. A divist<
showedl 119 to 51) in favor of adjour
ment; and when Reed called for telle
liallory (Dem.) of Florida, demand
the yeas and nays and they were

The rabble, for such it was, accept
the declaration with enthusiasm.

.he YourvilL, S. C., Feb. 22.-Mr. J.
"I 13. Boel, of Yorkville, returned home
11t last week from Greenville, where he
lias been in attendance upon the United
ed States Court now in session there. Mr.
d- 13ell is enthusiastic in his praise of
1 Judge Brawley, who, he says most em
n- phatically, is the "right man in the
or right place." On being asked to ex
plain himself more fully Mr. Bell said :
"d Why, I mean just this, The. pro
1 ceedings of the Court heretofore have
t been outrageous. Instead of a Court
of justice the place has been what
to might be called a regular perjury fac
tory. Judge Sinonton did all he could
to purify it, but somehow did not suc
coed. I am sure that by the time
t Judgo Brawloy presides at one or two
more sessions he will clean it out com
pletely.
" Now here is the situation," contin
Succd Mr. hell. " The dleputy marshals
got their pay through a system ot fees,
so much for each arrest, preliminary
hearing, commitment, etc., and for each
conviction. T1hey are allowed four
gwitnesses in each case, and as It is al
iways their iraterest to have that many
the practice of filling out the number
with professionals is growmug exten
sively.
"I have been to Greenville on several
occalsiolw as an attorney. The faces
there are familiar. TIhe same witnesses
come back again and~ again, and every
body kn ows that many of them are
professionals. I defended a man last
o~ week chamrged with selling liquor.
There were four witnesses against
himi, and at least two of them were
uinabIle to dlescribe the premises on
which the liqluor was said to hlave been
sold1. Although I had no testimony
except that of a reliable white man as

,jury brought in a verdict of ' not gull

d (oinig to put a stop to these abuses.
lie asked every witness, white or col
ored, " 11ow many times have you been
Shereoas a witness before ?' If the wit
0 n1e.s said( this was his first time, the
Judge told them it was all right ; but
i f they said once, twice, three or four
a -times, his Ihonor said in a tone, the
meanIng of whlich was unmistakable :
' Well, now, I'll give you fair warning.
You had better be very careful how
you comne back here.'
S "tIam satisiled," continued Mr.
.Boll, " that if Judge Brawley continues
Aas he has startedl out, the professional
