Little Progress Made With
the Repeal Bill.
The Senate Settled Down to a
Unconditional Repeal Believed to be
the Ultimate Result.
The President Will Varment to Ho Other
Conditions—Senator Teller Be
gin! ■ Long Speech
By the Associated Press.]
Washington, Sept. 9.—The fifth week
of the present extraordinary aessjon of
the senate closed today, and so far as
outward appearance indicate that body
is no nearer a conclusion upon the ques
tion before it than it was tbe day after
Voorhees reported his bill from the
finance committee. Senators who are
opposed to the repeal of tbe Sherman
law, talk as bravely of continued oppo
sition, though hardly so confidently of
success upon a voting test—as when
they were first called together, and as
yet show no signs of yielding
to the majority, which most of
them confess there is against tbem
upon tbe question of repeal. They
may be said to have fairly exposed their
plane of operations through tbe pro
longed speech made by Senator Stewart
and that begun today by Senator Teller.
It is evident, for tbe present at least,
that tbey mean to talk indefinitely upon
tbe financial question, with tbe hope of
forcing some concession from the presi
dent and the senate majority. There
was a time this week when tbey seemed
in a fair way towards securing general
consent to a compromise, but the fact
tbat the president is holding out for un
conditional surrender had the effect of
solidifying hia following and causing
them to determine upon beginning the
fight again next Monday upon tbe same
The President Will Accept Ho Other
Washington, Bept. 9.— On the house
side of the capitol but little credence is
given to tbe reports of compromise ac
tion in the senate on the repeal bill.
Tbe Democratic leaders in the house say
the Faulkner proposition in the senate
to./yV -.Mb-* cojyto.sapO.OQO.OOO and, then
nenoe. It is evidently the plan of the
house leaden to prevent at this time
any kindred financial or currency legis
lation which might complicate the situa
tion in the senate. They do not pro
pose, however, to allow tbe bouee to
fold its arms and adjourn from day to
day until action is had on the repeal
proposition in tbe senate. As soon as
the bills can be reported from the com
mittee the bouse will take up the bills
to admit the territories of Arizona, New
Mexico and Utah ; the bill to repeal the
federal election law, and possibly the
bankruptcy bill. These measures will
keep tbe house busy until the senate
acts; it will Bhow the country that
something is being done, and at the
same time prevent consideration of
financial bills that might complicate the
fight for repeal ln the senate.
President Cleveland absolutely re
fuees to consent to grantaay concessions
in the silver fight, says tbe Post. More
than this, he will not promise to agree
to any recognition of silver, even should
the repeal bill be passed. This is the
sum and substance of hia position, as
reported by a senator who bad a confer
ence with bim yesterday. It has re
newed the confidence of the friends of
unconditional repeal who assert unwav
ering faith in tbe final passage of the
With tbe understanding tbat the
president is upon a platform of "uncon
ditional repeal or nothing," tbe sen
ators have settled down for a long siege.
Meantime tbe Democrats in the senate
concerned for their party will make a
careful canvass to see if votes can be
secured for some measure that will com
mand sufficient votes to ensure the pas
sage of the repeal bill. There will be
plenty of time to make this poll, for
enough speeches are already in course
of preparation to occupy three or lour
weekß, if needed. They will not be de
-1 livered in their lengthy entirety if at
any moment the votes necessary to_ the
I passage of some concessions are se

tees were announced: Carey, Rep., of
Wyoming, relieved from service on the
committee on Indiana depredations -
Perkins, Rep., of California, assigned to
committees on civil service and retrench

The resolution offered yesterday by
Peffer calling for information whether

paid their checks in currency, was laid
before the senate, and its author spoke
The hour of 2 o'clock having arrived,
the chair laid before the senate tbe re
peal bill and Peffer'a resolution went
over until Monday.
Teller was recognized as entitled to
tbe floor, and in the course of his re
marks denied emphatically tbat there
was an attempt on tbe part of tbe rep
resentatives of the silver states to have
the government purchase the output of
the mines. He alao denied most posi
tively that tbe public bad expressed
their opinion upon tbe subject and in
favor of repeal. The great metropolitan
papers had spoken, tbe industrial cusses
bad not. They were not in favor of re
peal. The Industrial interest had been
throttled from the expression of an
opinion by the threat tbat the money
necessary to carry on the business would
be withheld; that threat was made with
an effrontery that should shame the
devil. As to what had induced tbe
bouse to vote for the bill which the arti
cle said was public opinion, the courte
sies due to the other body would pro
vent bis stating his opinion of what in
fluenced the vote. He would leave that
to some other place wbere he could not
be trammeled by the rules of the sen-
Tbe senator then went on to denounce
the newspapers, which he declared did
not represent tbe public. Teller said
be repeated the challenge made in n
recent speech, for any one to show tbat
the Sherman law was responsible in
any degree for the present financial con
dition or the condition which existed
when congress assembled. The act,
said tbe senior senator from Colorado,
has been made a scapegoat. There was
cause for the difficulty, declared Teller;
it was the course of wisdom for the sen
ators to address themselves to the cause
and not be carried off their feet by pub
lic clamor, by newspapers, by gibes and
threats, and be compelled to do that
which they knew would not bring the
people that which they deserved and
which the"y desired. To Bhow the iallacy
of the opinion tbat the Sherman act was
responsible for the distress. Teller cited
trade reports to tbe effect that the year
1892 was one of the most prosperous in
the history of the nation.
After brief executive session tbe sen
ate adjourned. _
A Session of the House.
Washington, Sept. 9. —The house held

, just as the ball on the flagstaff of the
i state, war and navy building opposite
the White House dropped from the top
of the staff. From time to time during
j the morning the president was quietly
, advised as to the condition of affairs in
I the sickroom, and at exactly 12 o'clock
i Dr. Bryant summoned him from the re
■ ception room and made the important
i announcement. The Bmile on the doc
tor's face and tbe reassuring pressure of
i the hand told the president that his
i wife was safe, and without pausing he
. asked : "Is it a boy or a girl?"
Something like a shadow of disap
, pointment swept across Mr. Cleveland's
face as the physician told him the new-
I born babe waß a girl.
The fact of the birth was not made
public until 2 o'clock. The news was
bulletined at tbe telegraph office,capitol,
departments and prominent hotels, and
was almost the sole theme of conversa
tion during tbe remainder of the after
noon. Everywhere disappointment was
manifested that the baby was not a boy.
Before 4 o'clock a stream of messenger
boys began carrying congratulatory tele
grams to the White House. This is the
first timo in the history of the republic
that the wail of a new-born infant of a
president of tbe United States has been
heard within the walls of tbe White
Though tbe press intimated at times
tbat Mrs. Cleveland would become a
mother a second time, tbe birth of the
baby today was somewhat of a surpriee
as Mrs. Cleveland waa out driving last
evening. She bowed frequently to
passing friends and acquaintances and
appeared in excellent health and spirits.

of two more reservations is under con

The conditions of opening, as at present
contemplated, are practically the same
as those under which the Cherokee strip

about 27,009,000 acres. In the latter
valuable minerals abound, while each

The Colville reservation, in Washing

now being made on the land; allot

Governor Markham Writes to
He Gives the Administration a
Enforcement of the Geary Law Will
A Probability That the Law 'Will Be
Amended So as to Give the
Heathen Another Chance
By the Associated Prow.
Sacramento, Sept. 9 —Following is a
copy of a letter aent by Governor Mark
ham today to Secretary Gresham:
To the Secretary of State, Washington, D. 0.:
I have caused to be forwarded to your
department copies of all communica
tions to or from this office pertaining to
the Chinese difficulties in this state. I
am pleased to inform you that open hos
tilities havo ceased, and na far as I can
learn, good order restored. I deem it,
however, my duty to inform you that an
outbreak may occur at any moment un
less aßsuranceß in some form are given
by the authorities at Washington tbat
tho laws of the United States regarding
the Chinese will be carried into effect
within a reasonable time. Whatever tbe
authorities may think as to the wiedom
of the Geary law, the fact that it is a
law, and the further fact tbat it has
not been enforced by those in
authority, furnishes an excuse for those
lawlessly inclined to break the laws of
our state, and that, too, with tbe sanc
tion of many of our citizens. I shall do
all I ought to protect these people, but I
cennot be held responsible beyond that
point. Many of our good citizens be
lieve a positive message by the president
to congress would result in an immediate
appropriation sufficient to remove the
only objection thus far made to the
complete enforcement of this law. Our
people have great confidence in the legal
opinions of United States District Judge
Hose, and it is evident to all that the
gravest complications in the state must
ensue unlets Btepß are at once taken to
harmonize and settle this important
state, national and international ques
tion. H. H. Mabkham,
THE CHINESE MUST GO.
The Administration Intends to Enforce
the Geary Lav.
Washington, Sept. 9.—There appears
to be littlp-.if auy, doubt at present that
the ;«.,„_ ,\ a ... tn Aniorce
the Geary law. In case tbe law is
rigidly enforced Yang Tv, tbe new
Chinese minister to tbie country, will,
it is said, withdraw for China. For the
past 43 hours he has been besieged with
telegrams from Chinese subjects through
out the country asking a verification of
the report that President Cleveland and
the cabinet had decided to put the
Geary law into effect. The Chinese Six
Companies of San Francisco have been
in telegraphic communication with him
ever since his arrival in Washington.
The attorney general, it is stated, will
instruct the United States marshals to
enforce the law and bring every un
registered Chinaman in their districts
to designated ports for deportation.
Solicitor Howe of tbe treasury depart
ment says there is no disposition on tbe
part of any officer of the government to
shirk the execution of the provisions of
the Geary act. Acircular will be issued
by the treasury department to inspec
tion efficere, directing them to comply
with the provisions of the act to tbe ex
tent of the funds appropriated. These
are found entirely inadequate for tbe
enforcement of the law, and will not
hold out long. When exhausted the
responsibility will rest not with customs
officers but with congress itself.
Soma fear, evidently, tbat the Chinese
government will retaliate when an at
tempt is made to enforce the act. At
any event, the arrangements for
strengthening the naval fleet bo the
Chinese station are significant. The.
gunboat Concord is now on the way to*
China. The Petrel has been ordered
there. The cruiser Baltimore ia also on
MAY BE AMENDED.
Chinese to Be Given Another Chance to
Washington, Sept. 9. —There is a prob
ability that the protests of the Chinese
government against the rigid execution
of the Geary exclusion law are to be
respected, and that legislation may be
enacted which will amend the existing
law by extending the limit allowed for
registration, although in nowise receding
from the position heretofore assumed by
thia government as to the constitution
ality of the measure. The new Chinese
minister arrived at the national capital
last week, and since that time there
have been consultations between the
president and his cabinet and the repre
sentative of tbe Chinese government.
While the Chinese minister has re
frained from committing Mb govern
ment as to the policy to be pursued
in case the Geary law remains
permanently upon the statute books,
he has not hesitated to express tbe be
lief that the rigid enforcement of the
law at thia time would be a grave in
justice to those Chinese who, under the
belief tbat tbe law was unconstitu
tional—a belief which certainly had
the color of probability, since three
judges of the supreme court of the
United States bad concurred therein—
failed to register within the prescribed
time. The result of these conferences
ia that Congressman Everett of Massa
chusetts today introduced in the house
a bill which extends the time of regis
tration from May 5, 1893, to September
1, 1894. The effect of this bill, if
enacted into a law, will be to practically
nullify the Geary law until September
1. 1894, when it will go into effect with
all its restrictions. Its passage, it is
thought, will restore cordial relations
between the United States and China.
COOLIES IN CUSTODY.
The Chinamen from Cuba Denied En
trance at New York.
New York, Sept. 9.—Lawyer B. C.
Chetwood appeared before Collector
Kilbreth today in the case of two China
men who arrived here from Havana
Monday on the Saratoga, and were or
dered returned Friday by the collector.
The Chinese claimed to be students and
were going to Hoboken. The collector
did not believe their consular papers
and certificates were genuine. The law
yer argued for a rehearing in an effort
to have them landed. The steamer was
scheduled to Bail for Havana at 1 o'clock.
At 12:20 Collector Kilbreth said ha
would not change his former decision
and tbe Chinese cannot land. Tbe
lawyer had just 35 minutes to go to the
United States circuit court and get a
writ and serve it on the collector and
notify tbe steamship company people.
When the Saratoga was about to sail,
her captain put the two Chinamen on
the dock, despite the protest of tbe cus
toms officers who now bave them in
OUTRAGES NEAR FRESNO.
Chinese Orape-Plckars Raided aud
Fresno, Sept. 9. —A mob of six white
workmen men raided R. H. Metzer's
vineyard last night and proceeded to
remove the Chinese grape-pickers there.
They first requested them to leave the
bunkhouse, but getting no response
tbey shot several holes through the
house without effect. They next tore
down the house and beat the Chinese,
badly wounding three ot them. They
then marched them toward Fresno as far
as the Butler vineyard, when two of tbe
wounded Chinese fell exhausted, and
the raiders dispersed. Aa yet, the
officers are in the dark as to who were
in the mob. Tbe sheriffs office is just
in receipt of news to the effect tbat
another raid was made on Sam Smith's
vineyard and that two Chinese were
killed, but details are not to be had.
MARTIAL LAW AT RIO.
THE SITUATION IN BRAZIL IS
Minister Thompson Reports to tbe State
Department—Several United States
War Ships Ordered to Rio
Washington, Sept. 9.—Martin law
baa been declare at Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil. It is feared the city will be
bombarded by the revolutionary army.
Word to this effect waß received at noon
by tbe State department irom Minister
Thompson at Rio. Secretary Gresham
at once communicated the news to tbe
navy department. A consultation was
bad as to the United States vessels
available to be sent to tbe scene to pro
tect American interests.
In bis dispatch Thompson urged the
government to send a war ship at once
to the scene of disturbance. Thia ia
necessary for the protection of Ameri
can interests at the Brazilian capital.
Secretary Gresham at once communi
cated tbe information to the secretary of
the navy and a conference to determine
what vessel is most available in the
present emergency was held.
The secretary of tbe navy said he
hourly expected a telegram from the
commander of tbe United States cruiser
Charleston, reporting his arrival at Bio
de Janeiro or Montevideo. He thought
it more than probable the vessel would
report from the latter city, however, as
she had been out at sea a much longer
time than would have been necessary to
sail from Barbadoes, where last re
ported, to Bio de Janeiro. The United
States ship Newark, now at Norfolk
navy yard undergoing repairs, has been
under orders for some time to go to the
South Atlantic statian. Orders will be
issued to her commander to see tbat the
repairs are hurried through with a view
to the qnick departure of the vessel to
the post of duty.
The commander of the cruiner York
town who reported bis arrival at Monte
video, has been directed by Secretary
Herbert to proceed at once with his
vessel to Bio de Janeiro. As the dis
tance to be sailed is 1000 miles, it will
be four or five days before he can pos
sibly reach the Brazilian capital. The
flagship Newark, at Norfolk, has been
ordered to proceed to Brazil with all
possible diepatcti. The Yantic. Charles
ton and Yorktown are tbe only United
States vessels now in Brazilian waters.
Montevideo, Sept. 9. —News received
here from Rio de Janeiro today o! the
naval revolt, is to the effect that the
chiefs of the navy went ashore, met and
publicly declared firm adhesion to the
government of President Peixoto. Be
hia and Terandentes, both af whom re
main loyal, had a conference with tbe
Brazilian minister here and will sail at
9 o'clock tonight for Asuncion.
Their object is to impede any move
ment whicn ships on the Paraguay river
might take in case their crews should
show signs of joining tbe revolt.
Later dispatches received here from
Rio say that the United States steamer
Yorktown sailed for the Pacific without
communicating with the shore. Tbey
also and that the rebel squadron has
changed its original intention of
sailing out of the bay there, as
the insurgents fear to pass the forts
which command the mouth of the bay.
These forts are manned by garrisons of
artillerymen who are loyal to Reixoto
and have orders to open fire on the reb
els the moment tbey come within range.
The revolutionists are confidently ex
pected to surrender before long.

the Columbus caravels from Spain to

California kept open house in honor
of the anniversary of her admission to
the union, giving away a trainload of

dedication of the Liberty bell, along with
tbe Grand Army and thousands of school
children who strewed flowers and set its
great metal sides resounding with a
stroke 'or each state and territory.
THE UTAH CELEBRATION.
Governor West and the Utah commis
sioners had their bands full receiving
the guests who called at the territory
building during the day. It bad been
decided by the commission to give a re
ception to tbe general public instead of
having a parade in view of tbe fact that
several other parades bad been planned.
The pretty little building was decorated
extensively, and here in the main parlor
Governor West, his staff and the com
missioners received citizens of Utah and
the public. Tbe Mormon choir rendered
music during tbe reception.
During the past week western people
have been coming to the fair in vast
numbers. In all this rush Utah
has sent its full quota af visitors, and
today they invaded their state building,
shook hands with their governor and
viewed tbe beauties of the exposition.
The exercises which had been prepared
in honor of the day were carried out in
the festival hall, that building being
better adapted to hold the crowd than
tbe state building.
Governor West made an address in
wbioh he praised the exposition man

the people of tbe world, and compli
mented his own people for having come
so far to do honor to themselves and
Presidents Smith, Cannon and Wood

with the expectation of hearing the

relating to what they bad seen since
their arrival in Chicago.
