LOS ANGELES: MONDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 9, 1893.
THE WEEK IN CONGRESS.
It Is Fraught With Great
A Momentous Event on Deck in
The Fate of the Silver Bill Will Be
Silver Men Hopeful of Securing Very
lilberal Ooaoeaslona—The Tucker
Bill to Be Toted on In
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. B.—The momentons
event in the senate this week will be
the attempt to secure a continuous
session of that body. Tbat tbe at
tempt will produce important results
can hardly be doubted by any one
familiar with the situation. The de
sire as well as the belief in tbe cham
ber Lb that the present week will
bring a solution of tbe problem. The
opinion is expressed that there will be a
compromise of tome character agreed
to and put through. The proposition
to simply extend the Sherman law for
an indefinite period, with reduced
monthly purchases, teems te be taking
shape as the moat likely of the various
propositions to receive approval. The
proposition to include a bond issue le
also receiving attention, nod tbo pres
ent indications are tbat while many
Democrats may not agree to such a
proposition, it may be put through
with the assistance of tbe Republicans.
THE SILVER MEN'S HOPES.
Tbe senators from the silver producing
states are constantly consulted and ad
vised with at to the terms of agreement,
hut tbey will not be allowed to dictate in
the matter of a compromise. It may bo
stated, however, that the silver party in
the senate, including beth Democrats
end Republicans, it not to anxious to
secure a compromise at supposed. The
silver men appreciate that they are in
the minority and cannot dictate tbo
terms of capitulation, bnt ftel that if
thjpy can make it clear tbat they will bt
able to go on with the debate indefin
itely, they will be able to secure very
liberal concessions. One point on which
t hey still seem determined to hold out, is
against fixing the limitation of the time
silver purchase* shall cease, within
Cleveland's administration, " and the
chnncetare they will win in the matter.
What the silver men would like best,
next to free coinage, would be a contin
uation of the tilter bill, that would be a
triumph and not a compromise.
TUB CKDOIAL TEST.
Senator Manderaon intimated yester
day that he coniidsred this result pos
sible, and having canvassed the cham
ber very thoroughly to secure a cempro
mise, Manderson is qnite competent to
paps upon the point. Snch a result
could be brought about by taking a re
cess until the regnlar meeting day ia
December, or by taking up some other
bill. There is a general dealte among
the senators te get away. If, there
fore, tbe night session experiment
eboald not bring tbe passage oi the bill
there ia a possibility that a recess reso
lution would eecnrs a majority in its
The elections bill will possibly reach
tbe senate early in tbe week, but tbsrs
will likely be do immediate effort to
take it up.
THE TCSKSH BILL.
An important matter will occupy the
attention of the honse thia week. Tues
day, according to the terms of the spec
ial order, the Tucker bill will go to a
vote. Although the Democrats are unit
,ed in the demand for the repeal of the
laws permitting federal supervieion at
the polls, come northern Democrats be
lieve the Tacker bill, which blots oat all
the laws on the atatute booka relating to
federal supervision, pnee too far; indeed,
even some southern Democrata believe
come of the statutes which the Tucker
bill aims to repeal, should remain on
the books. A Democratic crocus will be
held tomorrow night to give the Demo
crats an opportunity to discuss the pro
posed modifications and decide whether
any amendments to tho pending bill
eball be adopted. The prevailing opin
ion among Democrata who have can
vassed the actuation, ia tbat the Tucker
bill will be agreed upon aa it stands.
Cleveland is reported to have said he
hoped every vestige of the law perm t
ting federal interference would be wiped
out, and tbia expression ia expected to
have effect in the caucus.
After the disposal of the elections
bill, the bill from the banking and cur
rency committee will again come up. *
Thursday, if the banking bill is dis
posed of, tbe McCreary ssbstitute for
the Everett bill to amend the Geary
exclusion act, so as to extend the time
for the registration ef the Chinese, will
come up and be voted on after two days.
The bill will bo bitterly opposed by
some of tbe Pacific slope members, espe
cially Geary, who does not like its pro
visions and who believes the bill only
temporizes with the situation. To pre
vent filibustering, Chairman McCreary
of the foreign affairs committee haa
asked for a special order giving two
days for its consideration, and providing
for a vote at tbe end of that time. This
will be granted by the committee on
THE SILVER BILL IN THE HOUSE.
In whateverebape tbeailver bill might
paes tbe senate, everything else wonld
be laid aside in tbe house to act upon it.
Sentiment in the house is very etrong
that a eompromiae will he the result, but
if the compromise should carry with it a
proviaion for a bond iaaus, it wonld on
counter moat bitter and formidable op
position. In fact, the Democratic lead
era do not hesitate to give it aa their
antoicu fcluaA A lornnnuii lion fa* a W»nd -
issue would never be passed in the
lower branch of congress.
MINOR MATTERS IN TUB HOUSE,
During the morning hour of the week
variom minor matters may come up and
be disposed of, notably the old McGarra
Work on the tariff bill by tbe Demo

Several committees of the house will
be buey during the week. The commit
tee on merchant marine and fisheries

ian free shipping bill will be concluded
Morraay or early in tbe week. The
committee on territories will try to get
a quorum together to consider the sev
eral bills for the admission of Utah,
Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
Tbere has been more pressure for tbe
Utah bill than tbe others, and it will
be disposed of first.
MB. DOLITTLB'S RESOLUTION.
Representative Dolittle of Washing
ton state has introduced a joint resolu
tion providing for a commission, con
sisting of three senators and six repie
eentstives, to go over the entire route of
the Nicaragua canal and make a thor
ough examination, with a view of sub
mitting to congress a comprehensive re

was referred to the committee on inter

Postmaster General Biesell ie expected

SENSATIONAL SUICIDE OF AN EX-
A New Orleans Man Throws Himself
Under a Train In Clilengo—Hia
Head Oot Off — X Wiimw
tn the Caae.
Chicago, Oct. B.—What promises to
develop into a sensational suicide oc
curred today on tbe railroad tracks at
tbe foot of Monroe street. From papers
found on theinieide's body he is believed
to be Henry Kershaw, editor and man
ager of the New Orleans Commercial.
A man was noticed etaading on the
tracks, and as a freight train ap
proached he threw himself upon the
tracks and placed his neok across the
rail. The police hastened to fhe spot,
bnt the train severed his head from bis
body before they could reach him. Let
ters found in the man's pockets led to
his identification, and the contents if
true tell a sensational story. In all tbe
letters which he had written Kershaw
speaks of a crime charged against bim
which was prosecuted by a woman he
designated as Libbie Bloom, and a num
ber of secret societies, and he claims ha
waa hounded to tbe grave. He speaks
of an unfair trial, and evidently believed
his enemies intended to murder him.
He hinted at lynching, but stated he did
not fear it, not fearing death. Letters
were also found on him signed by Libbie
Bloom, and tbey, taken in connection
with those written by himself, indicate
that he was infatuated with the Bloom
woman, and left his wife and children
in older to live with her. Some of the
letters read like the products of a de

around the grave of Charles Stewart
Parnell in Q'lasnevin cemetery and did
honor and reverence to the memory of
the great Irish leader: It was tbe sec

The procession was beaded by a black
draped wagon upon which were piled
memorial wreaths sent from different
parts of the country, as well as several
from the United States, Canada and
from Australia. The officials of tbe cor

tended tbe ceremonies in state. The
streets along tbe route to tbe cemetery
were packed with people, and the
neighborhood of Glusnevin was crowded.
John tamed, brother of the late Charles
Stewart Parnell, and Mrs. Dickinson,
his slater, appeared in a carriage at the
cemetery. The wreaths were placed
upon tbe grave of the beloved Irish
statesman. The procession then re'
formed and returned to tbe city
It was the intention of the committee
to make the demonstration as far as
possible indicative of the strength of
the Parneilite cause. With this object
in view fast excursion trains were run
to Dublin from ail parts of Ireland.
Many thousands availed themselves of
these trains, and tho demonstration waa
much more successful than last year.
One great departure from the pro
gramme of last year was the
absence of public speaking in
connection with the oommemoration.
The procession was headed by a contin
gent ol t.he principal Parne'Uitea. All
tbe trades, friendly societies and many
other bodies in the city also walked in
the procession. Tbe instruments of the
