Voorhees said tbat to establish a clo

Teller gave notice that when the daily
seeßiona were extended into night, tbe
advocates of the bill, aa well aa its oppo
nente would have to be present.
Hill asked whether Teller was not
satisfied that there waa a majority in
the eenate favorable to repeal.
Teller replied that when a vote of the
senate on the question waa taken, it
showed a majority of almost two thirda
against the measure, and he would not
inault the intelligence of tbe body by
presuming that it had changed bo com
pletely in bo short a time.
At 10 minutes of 2 o'clock Mills took
the floor. He discussed at length tbe
necessity of maintaining a stable stan
dard, reviewing the history of the coun
try in ita efforts to attain that end, and
declared that continued fluctuation had
a more depressing effect upon the
farmers and other laborers than upon
capitalists and merchants. In conclu
sion Mills eaid that be would vote for
the repeal of tbe Sherman law, and
against every amendment which the
ingenuity of tbe human mind conld
conceive. . No amendment could be
offered to the bill, except one which
impeached the good faith of the presi

Democrat* In the Home Unable to
Secure a Quorum.
Washinoton, Sept. 19.—The quorum
of Democratic members upon which the
leaders counted today failed to put in
an appearance, and for three hours, by
skillful maneuvering the Republicans
were able to deadlock the house. The
failure to secure a quorum bo chagrined

At the opening of the house session,
this morning, Flynn, delegate from
Oklahoma, created a sensation by ask
ing for immediate consideration of a
resolution bearing on outrages Baid to
have been committed by United States
troops at the opening of the Cherokee
strip last Saturday.
Gates of Alabama objected to present
consideration of the resolution nnd
thereupon the' struggle to prevent a
report on the Tucker bill repealing ttie
federal Maws was resumed. For three
hours filibustering under the leadership
of Burrows waa continued. Roll call
followed roll call until it became appar
ent that tbe Democrats could not mutter
a quorum of their own, being six short
when they made the beet ehowing.
When the Democrats announced the
necessity of a caucus to whip the recalci

A Democratic Governor Raises HU
Voloe for Protection.
Washington, Sept. 19.—Tbe beet sugar
manufacturers were well represented be
fore the committee on ways and means
today. The chief speaker was Mr. Ox
nard of Nebraska, president of the Amer
ican Beet Sugar association. He said
congress had no moral right to repeal
tbe sugar bounty clause of the McKinley
law. T. R. Cutler of Utah, E. P. Fowler
and H. C. Hect of California also spoke
against the repeal of the bounty pro
vision. John Dimond of Louisiana also
strongly protested against the repeal of
the sugar bounty law.
J. H. Hubbard spoke for the Louisiana
rice planters and urged the committee
not to reduce the tariff duties on rice.
At the afternoon session a large num
ber of gentlemen from Virginia, Mary
land and Pennsylvania appeared to
protest against any reduction of the
duty on coal. Governor McCorkle of
West Virginia said be was not a miner,
but the governor of a state which had
16,000 square miles of coal mines, and
he wanted protection for the greatest
industry in his state, pleading elo
quently for the retention of the duties
on coal. When tbe governor had fin
ished Mr. Tarsney asked:
"The platform upon which you were
elected was for a reduction of duties,
was it not?"
"Then why are you advocating pro
"I do not believe in a tariff which
gives four or five times as high protec
tion to one industry as another."
Reed said he had in vain attempted
to explain to the Democratic members
the fallacy of their position, but with
the assistance ot a Democratic governor,
elected on a Democratic platform, he
might finally accomplish hia purpose.
THE EVERETT BILL.
It Will Not Re Reported Before Next
Washington, Sept. 19.—The commit
tee on foreign affairs will not report the
Everett bill for the extension of the time
limit allowed the Chinese to register,
until next Thursday. Some members of
the committee who favor the Everett
bill, as modified by the cub-committee,
declare that Geary, in fighting the meas
ure, is actuated principally by the fear
that if the bill were passed the matter
would again be carried into the Btipreine
court, and that tbe former decision sus
taining the constitutionality of the
Geary law would be reversed. They Bay
if a majority of the supreme court is now
against tbe constitutionality of the Geary
law, that fact can be readily determined
without testing it in proceedings to de
termine the constitutionality of an act
•applementmg the Geary act. They say
aay Chinese whom tbe United Statea
(sui decide under the Geary act subject
to deportation, can appeal to the su
preme court on a writ of habeas corpus,
if any new question of law is involved in
tbe appeal, and force the court to render

Tho Affections of the Arab.
An Arab—meaning a. tent dweller,
for in an equine senso tho town dweller
is no Arab—loves first and abovo all his
horse. No noed to recite the oft sung
affection ho will lavish upon him. Next
he loves his firearm. This, poetically
speaking, ought to bo a six foot, gold in
laid, muzzlo loading horror of a match
lock, which would kick any man but an
Arab flat on his back at every shot, but
actually, in Algeria or Tunis, when he
lives near a city, it is rather more apt to
bo a modern English breechloader. Yon
must fly from tho busy haunts of men to
find the matchlock.
Next to his gun he loves his oldest son,
Last comes his wifo or one of his wives.
Daughters don't even count. I mean the
Arab scarcely takes tho trouble to count
them, unless in so far as they cau minis
ter to his comfort, diototic or otherwise.
Until some neighbor comes along and
proposes to marry—in other words, to
make a still worse slave of ono of them,
she is only a chattel, a soulless thing.
And yet sho is said to bo a pretty, amia
ablo, helpful being—said to be, for no
ono by any hap ever chanties to cast his
eyes on one worth seeing. Tliis disregard
for women, bo it said to their honor, does
not always apply to tho Bedouina of the
Syrian and Arabian desert3.—Colonel T.

THE SIEGE OF RIO.
Insurgents Attacking the Capital from
Buenos Ayres, Sept. 19.—1t is re
ported that tbe rebel fleet lias succeed
ed in forcing a passage past the forts at
Rio, with the intention of blockading
Santoa, and, if necessary, shelling it.
Provisions at Rio are becoming very
scarce. The high prices charged for all
the necessaries of life are causing much
Buffering among the poorer classes. On
the other hand, several ships loaded
with cattle are announced to be leaving
the La Plata for the use of the insur
gents. If the rebels capture Santos, tho
railroad to Rio would enable them to
attack tbat city in the rear and on the

object of the revolutionary leaders.

WAS NOAH BURIED TWICET
Two Graves of the Patriarch. One of Which
Is Slxtr-fonr Feet Long.
In a former article I gave a penrricture
of the "tomb of Noah" as it now exists
near the ruins of au old fortress at
Nakhtchevan, Armenia. According to
Eastwick's "Three Years In the East,"
this old Armenian tomb is annually vis
ited by thousands of pilgrims of all
faiths, including Mohammedans and
Turcomans, who moke wearisome jour
neys of hundreds of miles in order to do
reverence to our common ancestor. But,
like all other relics which have the be
ginning of their hi;,tory in tradition, this
supposed tomb or the builder of tho ark,
half hidden among tho hoary ruins on
the Armenian plains, has a rival stand
ing almost within the shadows of the
cedars of Lebanon.
Henniker's "Palestine In ISoo'' says:
About two miles east of Zakhle is the
village of Kerak, not far from which, on
the last declivity of Lebanon, there is a
round mosque. This is erected over still
older relics which are held in great rev
erence by Moslems and Christians alike,
it being the reputed tomb of Noah the
Patriarch. The structure is now a part
of an ancient aqueduct and m regarded
by superstitious thousands as being a
place of eminent sanctity. Walls have
been built around it, and at certain sea
sons of the year the Maronites in particu
lar inako long pilgrimages to visit it.
In hia old age, so tradition says, Noah
entreated God as a particular favor that
he might be allowed to end hi 3 days in
the shade of the'boautiful cedars of Leb
anon, and there to preparo his place of
burial. The patriarch's prayers were
granted, but shortly beforo his death he
committed somo transgression, and to
punish him God cut off a part of the
tomb which had been constructed to re
ceive the patriarch's remains.
This being the case, it is clear that
Noah could not be buried at full length,
but was laid to rest with hia 1 *s doubled
up under his thighs, so ac to make the
remains conform with the size of the di
minished tomb. But, taking everything
into consideration, he must have been a
giant of giants, for the tomb, even in
its curtailed slfcte, is 04 feet long.—St.
Delayed the Train to Look For Teeth.
Several years ago, while temporarily
in chargo of a division on one of the
southern trunk lines, an incident came
under my observation which for oddity
seemed worthy of notice outside of the
regular offico record. We were han
dling an unusually large amount of
freight, and, as is the custom
cases, were watching delays to trains
very closely, calling to account all of
fenders who could not show a good ex
cuse. On going to the telegraph office
one evening to look over the situation
the dispatcher on duty called my atten
tion to a delay of 40 minutes to a freight
train, for which the conducto/had sent
a message report reading, "Delayed
looking for fireman's teeth."
As this seemed to be a piece of levity,
I ordered him to report to tho office on
arrival. This ho did, and to my sur
prise he confirmed tho telegraphic report.
It seemed that tho fireman had just pur
chased a new set of "store troth," and
not being accustomo.l to them had lost
the upper plate while standing in the
"gangway" getting a breath of air. Ho
promptly told the engineer, who stopped
the train, and tho whole crew wont back
with lanterns to look for tho property.
It was found and restored to the owner,
and the train then proceeded. The mas
tor mechanic waa instructed to direct
tho fireman to keep his mouth closed
while on duty, and the papers were duly
filed in the records, where they can still
bo found. I*ave seen many excuses for
delays, but no other cases liko this.—

HIGH-ROLLERS IN TROUBLE.
The Police Raid a Bagnio on Brooklyn
Officers Carney and Smith raided a
house of ill-fame on Brooklyn Heights,
about 1 o'clock this morning, and
brought to the police station seven tack
les*, females and two young bloods, all in
a more or less hilarious condi
tion. For some time past the
quiet of the pioas and respectable
neighborhood across the river had been
disturbed by the orgies carried on
nightly in the raided establishment.
Complaints about the place becoming
rather frequent, the police at last de
cided to close it out. When the "cop
pers" closed in on the building last
night, several of the male inmates
jumped out of the windows, but all the
rest were captured. One of the young
men who belongs to a highly respectable
family begged hard not to be
taken to the station, stating that
he wonld rather lose a thousand
dollars than be exposed in such
company, but the officers were obdurate
and he was brought along and locked np
with the rest. His appearance in the
police court this morning will oreate a
sensation among the high-rollers.
The Arab's Donkey.
One sees Arabs coining into Constan
tinople with a donkey load of wood,
which they sell for 8 francs. They have
couiu 25 miles with it, sell it, and next
day ride the donkey back. As a meal
costs them but 2 cents, the wood
nothing, and the donkey does all the
work, what seems a small profit is really
a good one. And who is it that earns it?
All saddle beasts in the east go what
our Anglomaniacs cn.ll "artificial" gaits;
in fact, three-fourths of all the animals
in the world do so. Mules which are
ridden always "sidle" or amble, all don
keys running-walk, rack or amble. But
nowhere except in our southern 6tates
have these gaits been studied as an art,
improved on and bred from.—Colonel
T. A. Dodge in Harpers.
Marrying For Pity.
A fair maiden who had weathered the
blasts of some 85 summers was in
formed by a booby that unless she mar
ried him he would blow the top of his
head off. It's a pity she didn't let him
do it. Heads of that kind ought to be
blown off every time. That is what
they are for. But Desdemona pitied
Othello, and this fair maiden pitied her
lover and went to the parson's with him.
That was only a month ago, and now if
he wants to kill himself she will present
him with the best silver mounted pistol
in tho market.
Marriage is a solemn contract, and it
is better to think twice before signing it.
—New York Telegram.
Two men became engaged in a fight
in the street. Instantly tbeir hats went
off and rolled in the dust. One of the
men was entirely bald, and the other
had a thick head of hair. The bald man
seized the other by the hair and began
to drag him about.
"Stop him!" cried a bystander.
"Why should yon stop him?" asked
another. "He's only practicing the gold
"The golden rule? What do yon mean?"
"Why, he's doing to the other man
what he wishes to goodness the other

Good Enough For a Beast.
A droll little story is told of Mr. W.
S. Gilbert. He put up his horse one day
at a small country inn, on the signboard
of which was painted conspicuously the
notice, "Entertainment for man and
beast." When his lunch was brought,
he looked dissatisfied, and surprised the
waiter by saying, ' This is all very well
so far, bnt where is the entertainment
for the mart?" — Ifmitrm Tit-Bit's.
by a cash offer —the statements that
are made by the proprietors of Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy. They say
that their medicine -will ciyre, per
fectly and permanently, the worst
case of Chronic Catarrh in the
Head—that not only Catarrh itself,
but all the troubles that come from
it, and every thing catarrhal in its
nature, are cured by the mild, sooth
ing, cleansing and healing properties
of their remedy.
They can't say any more. Prob
ably every medicine for Catarrh
claims as much. But it's one thing
to promise a cure—it's a very differ
ent thing to perform it. The propri
etors of Dr. Sage's Remedy want to
prove that they mean what they say.
So thoy make this offer: If they
can't cure your Catarrh, no matter
how bad your case or of how long
standing, they'll pay you $500 in
cash. You're sure of the money or
a cure. Isn't such a medicine worth
The seat of sick headache
is not in the brain. Regulate
the stomach and you cure it.
