By lhe Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 9.—The decree of
tbe Democratic caucus at the honee to
night was that the Tucker bill repeal
ing every vestige of the federal election
aws except one stray statute, ahould be
passed tomorrow. It was decided unan
imously to pass the Tucker bill aa it

ate. A resolution waa adopted a$ fol

' The caucus of Democratic senators
reported to have been held at tbe cap
itol Sonday proves to have been only an
informal conference of some of the lead
ing Democratic anti-repeal senators.
The meeting was strictly private and
the senators who were preaent decline
to divulge the details of the conversa
tion. Gentlemen in a position to know
say no agreement waa reached, even
among the senators present. A canvass
of the strength of the opposing forces is
said to have been made and to have re
sulted in the conclusion that tbere are
21 Democratic senators favorable to re
peal and 23 opposed.
THE TUCKER BILL.
Last Day's Debate on that Celebrated
Washington, Oct. 9.—ln the house
today AUUslch, of Illinois, opened the
debate on the election bill with a vigor
one defense of the Republican attempt
to check Democratic frauds in Chicago
and put down the alleged Carter Har
Doliiver, of lowa, followed in the
same strain. He said the repeal oJLUie
election laws wonld piece this govern
ment in the attitude of disowning tbe
men who defended ite life. He made a
vigorous attack on Tammany, charging
it with levying taxes on the vices of the
unfortunates of the city.
Boutelle of Maine, after a glowing
tribute to New England, made sarcastic
allusions to Dr. Everett df Massachu
setts, and waa about to read from tbe
writing of James Rusßell Lowell, which
he said described tbe "doughface" of
'61, and was a photograph of the dough
face of' 93.
Springer of Illinois took exception to
applying the epithet of doughface to a
member of the house.
"It ia an epithet," said Boutelle
fiercely, "which can be applied with
equal force as well to the gentleman from
lilinoieaato the gentleman from Massa
Springer grew white with rage, and
striding fiercely toward Boutelle,.re
torted : "I want you to know, air, jou
can't apply such an epithet to me."
After some further exchanges Boutelle,
Btill protesting that tbe expression was
not unparliamentary, withdrew it.
Continuing, Boutelle said: "Every
Democratic speech has demonstrated
this to "be a blow at the fundamental
principle underlying tbe government.
I thought the new generation would
join bands with us in building np tbe
common country. For 10 days the
sheeted ghoeta of tho confederacy have
flitted about theee halls and gibbered of
the defeated conspiracy. The vice-presi
dent of tbe United States has been ac
cused of undue sympathy with your
struggle to capsize tbe government, yet
you do not complain. Not an Union
soldier sits about the cabinet table."
[Republican applause J
Boutelle then went on to take up the
records of the Democratic senate com
mittees, beginning with tbe president
pro tern, Harris, showing that almost
without exception tbey served in tbe
Confederate army. He reviewed the
committees in tbe house, from tbe
speaker down to tbe committee on pen
sions, showing how they were domin
ated by ex-Confederates. Wlison, he
said, deposed Springer, from a loyal
state, as chairman of the ways and
meana committee, and Holman wae de
posed by the triumphant Democracy
with a Confederate. "I declare here
now, on my own responsibility as a rep
resentative, tbat no more miacbievont
doctrine; no more deadly blow at onr
institutions; at the essence of our na
tionality ; at onr country, can be dealt
than will be the denial of tbe right of
this imperial government to cross tho
borders of a sovereign state." [Repub
"If such doctrines prevail, then the
cause for which I and 2,000,000 of my
northern countrymen fought when the
rebellion was put down wae not victori
ous." [Renewed applause.]
Mareball of Virginia secured five min
utes in which to reply to the fiery utter
ances of Boutalle. He appealed to tbe
Republicans not to be constantly re
minding tbe south tbat it had engaged
in an unholy rebellion.
Stallings of Alabama and Lockwood of
New York followed in advocacy ol the
Payne, (Rep.) of New York opposed
tbe bill. He detailed at great length
tbe "theft" of the senate of New York
by the Democrata in 1890, and the part
taken by Judge I. R. Mavnard. who was
nominated ior supreme judge by the
New York Democrats last Friday. "Why
do you" demand honest elections," he
suited, addressing the Ovsaocratin stria.
"when yon nominate for tbe highest
judicial position in the Empire state a
Fitch of New York, chairman of the
committee whicb reported the bill,
closed the debate for the Democrats.
He scored Jobn I. Davenport without
restraint, and traced to him the attempt
of the Republicans at Albany and
Washington to legislate New York into
a Republican city, but said the result of
this attempt and the performances of
Davenport had only been to drive the
Republicans entirely from control in
New York city. He defended New York
against the assaults made upon her
government, and in tbe name of tbe city
of New . York demanded the passage of
tbe pending bill. [Applause.]
Tucker rose at tbe close of Fitch's
speech to ask leave to print some re
marks in reply to an aspersion upon
his father, John Randolph Tucker, from
Boutelle. Then, at 4:40, tbe house ad
Very Bplrlted Dltennslon In the Senate
Washington, Oct. 9.—ln the senate
today Harris, of Tennessee, replied in
oanstic terms to tbe resolntion of the
Memphis Merchants' exchange for tak
ing himself and colleague, Mr. Bates, to
task for opposing repeal.
He believed if tbe whole people of
the state of Tennessee were appealed to,
they might possibly repudiate the au
thority of the exchange to represent
them npou tbe subject. With tbe ut
most respect and with no feelings of re
sentment, he begged to inform those ex
changes that tbe threat contained in
their resolutione bad no terror for him.
Wolcott of Oolorsdo spoke on the reso
lutions directing the committee on fin
ance to report a bill embodying the
declaration of tbe policy contained in
tbe Vorbees substitute.
Wolcott severely criticised the letter
of President Cleveland to Governor
Nortben of Georgia, which he charac
terized as one of the most remarkable
pronnnciamentoß of this generation. He
also BDoke of the extraordinary activity
of tbe administration in forcing its
views on congress, and condemned the
act of tbe secretary of the treasury in
not purchasing the amount of silver re
quired by law.
Wolcott said within the last few days
tbe worst apprehensions of the friends
of silver as to the position of tbe execu
tive bad been realized. Tbe president,
while congress was in extraordinary ses
sion, informed the country that he was
astonished at tbe opposition of tbe sen
ate to tbe measure which he advocated
in bis message. ''Such an utterance is
instruaive and offensive," said Wolcott,
"and unfitting in respect to tbe relatione
which would exist between tbe legisla
tive acd executive departments ot tbo
government, and it deserves tbe protest
' and rebuke of every man who values the
perpetuity of republican institutions."
"I appeal to the senator from Indi
ana," Wolcott said, "who in his heart
I know is opposed to the abandonment
of silver as a standard, who holds the
key to the whole situation in his hands,
and whose single word of approval
would bring us relief and save the
country from tbe cruel burden of mono
metallism, to stand with the people of
out* own country and onr own flag,
against tltis p-oposed surrender to Brit
ish interests. The only hope for silver
is by an amena-nent to tbe present bill.
There is no hope for an independent
measure, even if it should pasß con
Vorheee replied at great length and
with much feeling.
Voorhees said tne constant assevera
tion tbat tbe pending bill demonetized
silver was not a fact. The pending bill
did not take from a single dollar of sil
ver money ita monetary value.
Voorhees then defended the declara
tion that tbe policy of bimetallism is
contained in the senate substitute.
When tbe Sherman law no longer dis
graced tbe statute books he wae ready
to act promptly and with all tbe energy
and force be could command to carry out
tbe declarations made.
The resolution went to the calendar,
and the repeal bill being taken up,
Cockrell (Dem.) of Missouri addressed
the senate in opposition to the bill.
Cockrell declared tbe belief that Senator
Sherman introduced a bill- daring tbe
last congress for tbe repeal of the Sher
man act, for tbe purpose of influencing
tbe action of the Brussels conference,
then in session. At any rate, the intro
duction of tbe bill was used for tbat pur
pore. He criticised tbe action of the
Republican secretary of the treasury in
redeeming in gold silver certificates. He
was surprised tbat the Democratic sec
retary of tbe treasury pursued the same
The discussion having turned to the
general subject of tbe redemption of
silver certificates, to settle the question
Teller offered a resolution, which was
agreed to, calling for information as to
whether silver dollars or silver coin
certificates had been redeemed in
or exchanged by tho treasury depart
ment for gold or paper, which by law or
the practice of the government were re
deemable in gold.
Without concluding bis epeecb, Cock
rell yielded for an executive session.
Dolpb (Rep.) of Oregon offered a
resolution, which went over, calling
upon tbe secretary of state for informa
tion at to whether China had requested
an extension of time for the registra
tion of Chinese laborers in this country,
as required by tbe act of May 5, 1892, or
had given tbe United States any assur
ance if tbe time for such registration
ahould be extended, the Chinese labor
ers would register and take oat certifi
cates. Dolpb said subsequently be un

CUTTER VS. CENTERBOARD
The Latter Is the Better Type
That Fact Has Been Amply
The Valkyrie Disastrously Beaten by
The American Boat Proved Her Superi
ority In Windward Work, Running
aud ltaoln*;—The British
er* Feel Blue.
By tbe Associated Press.
Nkw York, Oat. 9.—For the eecond
time,, end that more easily than the
first, the America's cup defender, the
Vigilant, defeated the English repre
sentative, the Valkyrie. The second
race was sailed today on a triangular
course from Sandy Hook nnder con
ditions tbat could not have been more
gratifying. While tbo victory today
waa a magnificent one, only the strong
est words of praise can be aaid of tbe
gallant but ineffective struggle wbicb
the Valkyrie made. She was beaten
three miles at the finish, and when
the plaudits of tbe thousands rang out
to speed tbe conquerer, the bull of
the conquered was yet far astern.
The yachts got down to the start
over half an hour ahead of the time ap
pointed for tbe firingof tbe preparatory
gun, which was 11:15. and cavorted
around to the northward of the line un
til the first gun was given. Then they be
gan business. It was very pretty play on
tbe part of both captains. Tbe Valkyrie
was on the line when the gun to send
ber over wae sounded. At that time
the wind was blowing about 13 miles an
hour from tbe southwest by south-half
south.. It was of course a dead beat to
windward from Sandy Hook lightship
into Long Branch on the Jersey shore.
The Vigilant got quickly into the, wind,
and followed the Valkyrie over the line
about two lengths behind. The handler
of tbe Vigilant evidently felt he muat
gain in the windward work, and very
quickly, what he lost in lateral distance.
He began to pinch his boat high up in
to tbe wind. Her head sails shook aa
though there was not enough wind to
fill tbem, and ahe dropped behind. Tbe
Valkyrie went ahead through the water
with great speed. It looked as though
she waa skipping right away from the
Vigilant, and so she was in a way, bnt
the Vigilant'a center-board ptevented
that boat from Bagging to leeward,
wbereaa tbe keel of the cutter had only
a amall part of tbe same-effect.
Presently the sails of tbe Vigilant
were seen to belly oat, end from that
moment tbe American yacht began to
win the race. She passed tbe Valkyrie
at 12:05, 40 minutes after the start, and
never afterwards was headed or touched
under'any conditions or circumstances.
When tbe Vaikyrie saw her opponent
going ahead, she hauled down her big
topsail with tbe intention of putting np
a email one like the Vigilant's, but while
the changing was going on Oaptain
Cranfield decided to go about. No
Booner had the Englishman gone around
than tbe American followed suit. As
the boats stood off on tbe port tack, it
w ac Been tbe Vigilant was overaquarter
of a mile ahead and just about as much
to windward. They tried hard on the
Valkyrie to send her head np intc the
wind, but ehe could not better herself a
single inch. - -
When the Vigilant got around the
first leg ehe was over a mile in the lead,
but the Valkyrie stuck to ber work.
Tbe wind was' almost directly over the
starboard quarter as tbey started on the
eecond leg. The Valkyrie now bad a
chance to show what she could do in
running before a real wholeeale breeze.
It had been the eteody - claim of the
cutter men that the model of their
choice waa sure to beat the centerboard
in that sort of work. Instead of doing
so, the centerboard increased her lead
to an extent that made everybody,
triends and enemies, astounded.
It was a fair and square open sea race,
both boats finding every breath that
waa aatir. When the Vigilant turned
the flag at the end of the second leg,
she was a good two miles in advance.
Having rounded that mark, then came
another leg on which the cutter was
supposed to be much tbe better boat.
The wind wae pretty nearly abeam, and
the sheets were hauled aft. lt was a
pretty good specimen of reach, and yet
the light-draughted boat knocked the
spots out of tbe deep craft. There was
but one thing to say about it. Tbe
Vfgilant continued to increase her lead
from the time she began the leg until
ebe crossed the finish line. She had
made on tbe average at tbe end just
about an actual sain of a mile on each
of tbe three legs. It was an ample
test, as has been told, on each of the
three points, windward work, running
It ie generally admitted that the Val
kyrie ia tbe beet boat England has ever
sent over to win the America's cnp.
She met, however, a yacht that is so lar
hei superior that ber hitherto admirers
all say there can be no doubt the Vigi
lant will win three straight races, and
therefore the match. Tbere remains,
however, a queution aa to which of the
boats is tbe more worthy in half a gale
and a very rough sea.
The official time was: Vigilant—
Start, 11:25; finish, 2:50:01; elapsed
time, 3:25:01; corrected time, 3:25:01.
Valkyrie—Start, 11:25; finish, 3:02:24;
elapsed time, 3:37 :24; corrected time,
Thus tbe Vigilant beat tbe Valkyrie
by 12 minutes, 23 seconds, on lapsed
time, and, after taking off 1 minute 48
seconds, time allowance, 10 minutes, 35
Tbe regatta committee say the Vigi
lant crossed tbe starting line two sec
onds ahead of tbe Valkyrie. This would
reduce tbe victory of the Vigilant by
two seconds, in actual time, but it dees
not count as the yachts had equal
chances to start at one gun signal.
The gains of the Vigilant are officially
reported to be 4 minutes,46 seconds, Ob
tbe first leg, 4 minutes, 12 seconds, on
tbe second, and 3 minutes, 20 seconds,
on the third.
An Associated Preee reporter taw
Captain Cran field on the Valkyrie and
asked him at to tbe race. The captain
said: "I must say we are very much
disappointed. I knew after Saturday's
race we had a herd nut to crack, but I
could not believe we could have been
so well beater as we were."
"Has not your knowledge of center
board yachts, as com oared with keel,
convinced you that tbe American plan
is the better?"
"I will not admit that yet," aaid
the Scotch captain. "We can yet show
you some other experiments."
It is learned that tbe American yacht
had a spar strained during the race. A
new one had to be rigged, and as tbe re
sult, Wednesday's race may be pat off
Tbe President Getting; Ready for a Gold
Chicago, Oct. 9.—A Washington spe
cial says: Cleveland is getting ready for
the issue of gold bonds, probably $100,
--000,000, either under a compromise sil
ver bill or under the authority the treas
ury department already baa. J. Pier
pont Morgan, of Drexel, Morgan & Co.,
who helped to float the former issue of
bonds, has just had oonferenoet with
Carlisle and Greehaqp. He goes back to
New York with tbe information tbat tho
best compromise that can be made with
the silver men is to continue the pur
chase of 2,000,000 ounces of sil
ver per month for three years,
and authorize bonds ior the puroose of
ncreaeing the gold reserve to $2,000,000.
The silver men may insist on the pur
chase of 2,500,000 ounces per montb.
If they do they will consent to a provision
permitting national banks to issue cir
culation to the par value of their bonds.
Cleveland may repudiate tbe proposed
compromise; he may even seek to bead
it off by announcing that he will provide
for bonds under tbe authority be already
has. Carlisle's emphatic denial of the
report from Paris that tbe United States
ie reeking to arrange a $1,000,000 bond
issue abroad, and his boastful declaration
that no bonda will be issued by tbe Demo
cratic adminiatration, have no bearing
en the eituation.

A GENERAL HOLIDAY.
Never before was a holiday so gener

closed, and small stores of all descrip

the city these stores were closed, and
even tbe thousands of milkmen caught
the infection and notified their patrona
eeveral days ago that they would make
bat one delivery today. Many large
firms, in addition to closing .their places
of business, furnished their employees
with tickets of admission to the fair.
With all these people turned loose and
added to by the tremendous injlox from
outside during the past 48 hoars, it is
not to be wondered at that such m crowd
was never seen before.
WENT Of* LIKE HOT CAKES.
Among the moat notable features of
the day were memorial editions of tho
Inter-Ocean, the Record and the Times,
newspapers of this city. These papers
were profusely illustrated, contained
elaborate reviews of Chicago and es
pecially descriptions of the great lire.
So unprecedented was the demand for
these papers that from an -jarly hoar in
the morning tbey sold at a premium,
and by afternoon people were paying as
high as 50 cents a copy for them.
AN APPALLING CRUSH.
At the down-town terminals all the
morning the crush was appalling. At
the steamboat landing, the Illinois Cen
tral and the elevated stations, tbere
was a jam tbe like of which bad never
before been seen here, while along the
line of tbe cable roads people were
packed in a black mass for blocks. At
the grounds the steady stream seemed
to increase, rather than diminish,
towards dark, as thousands of additional
people began to make their way in to sea
tbe night diaplay.
TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES TAXED.
Never in tho history of Chicago waa
tbere each a demand on tbe transporta
tion facilities as today. The crowd waa
bandied well, bnt no human means, no
system of transportation however vast,
waa capable of handling Bach a vast
crowd without difficulty. Accidents
were few and only a small proportion of
them were fatal." The majority of those
hnrt were from outside points, and the
trouble arose from their not being as
cautious as the native Chicagoans in the
navigation of tbe streets and in getting
on tbe cars.
VICTIMS OF THE CRUSH.
Those killed were:
Charles A. Clark of Buffalo, struck by
a cable car.
James Malcolm, residence unknown,
died from a stroke ot apoplexy at th«
fair. • , . :
Among those injured on cable trains
in the crush at the Illinois Central and
elevated stations, etc., were: Mrs.
Louise Rhode, of Gilman, 111.; Andrew
Wellß of Waupaca, Wis.; William J.
Burr, Hopkins, Ky.; O. F. Reylande,
Mattoon, III.; Miss Nettie Rogers, Co
lumbus, O.; Mrs. Matilda Stewart,
Fond dv Lac, Wis.; Charles Long,
Cincinnati; Toby Lanson, Chicago;
Policeman Patrick Clifford.
None of theee are thought to be fa
tally hurt, but they, as well as many
others whose names are not learned,
will have painfnl reminders of tbe day
for come time to come.
THE GREATEST CRUSH.
Tbe greatest crush occurred at Con
gress street depot of the elevated road.
The crowd there was simply terrifflc,
and despite the utmost efforts of the
police to keep tbem back, the jam was
such that women began to faint and
then panic followed, resulting in 6arious
injury to many people. There were a
number of distressing incidents on tbe
fair ground proper tonight owing to the
awful crush. Tbe hospital record at tj
o'clock showed less than 40 slight cauu
alities. Two hours later the number
bad increased to 126. Of these most
were women who had fainted and fallen
in a heap in the rushing and surging
mass that seemed to have lost ail tbe
powers of reason.
THE WORST OF ALL.
The worst crush of all wbb in the early
evening at the east side of tbe transpor
tation bnilding, where the people be?
came wedged in a great mass and a panic
commenced. Men shouted themßeivoa
hoarse to still the restless throng. Wo
men screamed frantically and dozens
