may have dictated them to tbe presi

Again quoting from Gorman's speech,
Morgan read a sentence as to Sherman
laying down the conditions. "He lay
ing down conditions to the Democracy,"
Baid Gorman contemptuously. "What
la the Democratic party worth to itself
or to the country, or to posterity, when
the senator from Ohio bas tbe key to the
situation and can lav down conditions to
it? What is your majority here worth

overrun and finally banded over to the
tender mercies of tbe senator from
Morgan said he had signed the pro
posed compromise, and had done so in
order to have peace and fraternity in the
"Commit suicide," said Morgan with
much bitterness, "because you cannot
get a chance to live on fair and even
terms with your neighbors.
As the hour oi 2 o'clock approached,
at which time Voorheea on Saturday
expressed the hope that the vote on the
passage of the bill would be had, many
repreeentativea entered the chamber
and found seats on tbe sofas iv tbe rear
of the senatorial cbairß.
NOTHING TO LOOK TO.
Morgan concluded his written re
marks at 2:40. He left the subject, be
aaid, with tbe knowledge tbat the die
was caet. The senate, house and presi
dent had determined that the pending
measure should prevail. There was
nothing now to look to, so far bb ho
could see, but some vague promises
made in the senate which were entirely
incapable of being realized.
DESOLATION OF THE WEST.
Vest followed Morgan. lie expreeeed
sympathy with the people of the eilver
Btates, and said no czar or kaieer would
desolate an insurrectionary province as
congress was abont to desolate tte silver
Btates of the west.
Cockrell (Democrat of Missouri) Baid
•t the last election the tarill' qneeticn
and not the financial queetion was
pressed to the frcnt and tbe Democratic
party Becured a victory. Now that the
election was over, tariff was lost sight of,
and the senior eenator from New York
(Hili) was beheld pitching to the front
on the silver question. Cockrell re
viewed at great length the history of the
repeal bill in the bouse and senate.
The bill was to paBB, eaid be. It had
been taken out of the hands of the
Democracy, and the Republican Beua
tors bad to be coneulted before any
thing could be done, and the Republi
can party would be infinite y more
responsible for unconditional repeal
than the Democratic party. if the re
peal of tbe Sherman law failed to restore
prosperity, the Republican party must
bear the responsibility.
Carey, Republican, of Wyoming, de
fended bis position on the repeal bill.
He then referred to the speech of Wol
cott, Saturday, in which be eaid he was
advißed that Wyoming desired repeal,
and that tbe eenator from Minnesota
(Washburn) had made a proffer of the
vote of the senator from Wyoming, and
bis authority was notquestioned. Carey
resented this statement, and made some
sharp personal references to Wolcott.
Iv conclusion Carey eaid he ehould vote
for unconditional repeal, although he
favored a compromise.
CAREY GETH A ROASTING.
Wolcott replied in an equally caustic
manner. He read a statement made
some time ago in which Washburn
stated that Carey had told bim he wouid
vote for unconditional repeal. "At the
time tbat statement was made," said
Wolcott, "the senator from Wyoming eat
quietly in hia eeat and from tbat day
until this has seen fit to give no utter
ance upon the subject. Here, appar
ently, Btood this young commonwealth,
with ite people unanimously in favor of
fr«e end unlimited coinage of silver
represented in this body by a eenator
who not only Baid no word nor permitted
a eenator from an adjoining Btate to de
fine bis pOßition. If the eenator from
Wyoming ia content with his position I
have no objection to make. I leave tiim
to hie conetituente."
Carey having eaid in his remarks that
Wolcott otrove alter effect and changed
hie costume with each Bpeech, etc.,
Wolcott replied hotly : "There are some
men to whom clean linen is an offense."
He regretted the senator from Wyoming
was one of them. He apologized to tbe
senate for stooping to such a personal
ailueion, and eaid there ia a Spanish
proverb that fits the caee: "It ie a waste
of lather to ehave an aBB."
QALI.ERIK3 CALLED TO ORDER.
This provoked great laughter in the :
galleries, and the vice-preaideut ad
monished the occupants. Carey replied
in a warm manner, charged Wolcott
with abandoning his party in the ia»t
Campaign, and aaid the trouble with
Wolcott and his people had bean that
they attempted to interfere in the affairs
of his (Carey's) people, instead of loos
ing after their own. He (Carey) had a
letter from a reputable citizen ot Color- |
ado, saying that if be voted against free j
coinage the influsnce and money of that
state would be uaed to ruin him. Carey '
blbo quoted from a manazine article on
Bilver a sentence about r trade by which
the Benatore from the Bilver atatea voted
against the force bill in return for vo'.ea
to be cast ior free coinage.
Harriß (Dem.) of Tennessee hotly
branded this statement about his posi
tion as false. He eaid he considered it
dishonorable for a senator to use aueh
terms with reference lo a colleague.
Teller also asserted that the statement
was false, and declared that Carey knew
it to be false.
Butler (Dem.) of South Carolina called
upon Mauderaon ol Nebraska, who
called him to order several days ago for
words spoken in debate with Hill, to
ca.ll Carey to order.
Manderaon replied: "The senator
from South Carolina is so pugilistic in
his tendencies that I leave this bght to
Waßhhurn cbaract»rized the statement
tbat he had proffered Carey's vote as
Dubois regretted tbat Carey did not
represent iiis people, but knew the een

Pasco called for the reauiug of his

Stewart offered an amendment reduc
ing the gold in gold coins 25 per cent,
but accepted a negative verdict without
calling for the yeas and nays.
A SLIGHT IXTEItHCI'TION.
Pasco yielded, while Gray presented a
report on the Chinese extension bill.
White asked that it be made a special
order for Wednesday.
Objection wm made and tbe bill went
to tbe calendar.
Pasco offered bis amendment for free
coinage of silver, with a seigniorage
charge to be based upon tbe market
price of silver. Defeated on roll call, 20
yeas, 47 nays.
TUB CLOSING SPEECHES.
Jones of Nevada resumed bis speech,
begun several days ago. The demoneti
zation of eilver, be said, waß but a part
of the scheme of the banks of the great
money centers, who also wanted a mo
' nopoly of the issue of money. They

opinion, instead of issuing bonds to re
lieve the currency famine, the govern
ment should isßue greenbacks.
In conclusion Jones said this was not
the doom of eilver, as come imagine; it
was only the beginning of tbe tight.
Pelfer and Hariis spoke briefly against
the bill, and Stewart closed the long
debate with a few remarks in a similar

CANDIDATES FOR STATEHOOD.
The Administration Not ln a Hurry to
Admit the Territories.
Washington, Oct. 30.—The house com
mittee on territories has been busy sev
eral weeks perfecting a bill for the ad
mission of Utah. ft is thought the ad
ministration has not wished to ccc tbe
admission of territories preeeed just
now. The fact tbat ail tbe men who
would come to the senate and the house
from the proposed new states would
be silver men has caused the promoters
of the statehood movement to pause.
In order to get around any such diffi
culty as this Delogate Joseph of New
Mexico, has proposed to have the bill
admitting his territory changed bo that
the admission will not become opera
tive until 1895. For Utah, Arizona
and New Mexico It ia propoeed to grant
them double the amount of land granted
the laet territoriee to be admitted. The
reason for this is that these grants are
made for tbe purpose of establishing
funds ior various state institutions, and
it is claimed tbe lands which the three
territories now knockingat tbedoor, will
receive, are mostly, if not entirely, arid,
and fit for nothing until tbey bave been
made valuable by a costly system of ir
rigation. The last cix etatea admitted
received as grantß for various state in
etitutione about 500,000 acres of land
each. The thfee territoriee asking for
admission think they will need at leaet
1,000,000 acrea each.
THE SHERMAN ACT.
A Stateineut or the Operations Under
Washington, Oct. 30.—Senator Sher
man haa received from Secretary C»r
liele a reply to a letter of hie concerning
tbe seigniorage now in the treasury. The
secretary save of tbe treasury notes is
sued under the Sherman act 152,395,840
have, upon the demand of the holders,
been redeemed in gold, and $2,224,192
in eilver dollare. The secretary's letter
shows that the seigniorage in tne treas
ury, carried under tbe Sherman act,
amounts to $<>,970,098. The silver bull
ion on hand October let amounted to
137,666,867 fine ounces, costing $124,
--661,428. With the probable purchases
of October, Carlisle thinks there will be
139,Gb<),257 ouncea of silver bullion in
the treasury November Ist. the cost of
which will be $125,888,929, and the
coinage value $180,320,008, giving a seig
niorage of $54,431,080.
The Senate Expected to Pa*s the Mc
creary Bill Without Delay.
Washington, Oct. 30. —It id generally
understood that the eenate will pass the
Chinese exteneion bill while the bouse
ia coneidering the eilver repeal bill.
Several Pacific coaßt men eaid if the
eenate should amend the bill, as bae
been euggested, by striking out all tbe
amendments making it simp'y an ex
tension of six months, a quorum would
be needed in the house to pass the
amended bill. The California members
do not purpose to give up what they
would gain in extension with thb
amendments they proposed, and which
the houee accepted.
Camed l>r Underrating the Fighting
Qualities or the Moors.
Madrid, Oct. 30. —The Spanish re
verses at Melilla were due to the mis
take of Gen. Margalio in under-rating
the hostility and fighting powers of tbe
Arabs. At a cabinet council Sunday,
which wae snmmoned by the queen re
gent heraelf, her majesty said she consid
ered the time bad arrived to appeal to
the patriotism of ell Spaniards for sacri
fices to defend Spanish honor at Melilla.
She asked tbat all tbe information in
regard to affairs there be published and
none concealed. In the meantime the
Wadraz infantry regiment formed in tbe
courtyard of tbe San Francisco bar
racks, ready to start for Mellila, and at
the close of the council tbe queen and
her children, accompanied by a number
of noblemen and generals, drove to the
barracks and reviewed the regiment.
News received tonight, which was
brought to Malaga by steamer owing to
tbe fact that the cable is interrupted,
says tbe Moors returned today with the
determination of reconstructing tbe
trenches 600 yards from Camellos, not
withstanding a heavy fire by the Span
ish troops. Official figures show tbat
the Spanish losses in the recent engage
ment'were 12 killed and 50 injured.

of St. Louis was formerly a Southern

with the stick that he was played in tbe

his strong hitting in the league and haa
fielded far above tbe average. He is also
quite a fair base runner.
Possibly no new man ever showed ac
much promise with the stick as young
Bannon, who played a brilliant engage

of pitching ability. He has been aigned

Treadway went to Baltimore from

Never iv the anuals of baseball has such

be the best throwing catcher in the

Never has the air been so full of ex

Menalee and Parrott. Menafee has a
cool head, good curves, and wonderful

contortionist from Cincinnati, is neither
handsome nor graceful out is very
ell'eetive. He (rives a preliminary song

A Wonderful TlMewerplxig Autfimnton.
One of the most wonderful timekeep
ers known to the horologist was made
in London about 1(10 years ago and sent
by tho president of the East India com
pany as a Rift to the emperor of China.
Tho enso was made in tho form of a
chariot, in which wiir st ated the figure
of a woman. This figure was of pure
ivory and gold and Hat with her right
hand resting upon a tiny clock fastened
to the side of tho vehicle. A part of the
wheels whioh kept hack of tho flight of
time were hidden in the body of a tiny
bird, which h.'td seemingly just alighted
npon tho lady's finger.
Above was a canopy so arranged as to
conceal a silver bell. This boll was fit
ted with a miniature hammer of the
samo motal, and although it appeared to
have no connection With the clock regu
larly struck tlio hours and could be
made to repeat by touching a diamond
button on tho lady's bodice. In the char
iot at tho ivory ludy's feet there was a
golden figure of a dog, anil above and in
front wore two birds apparently flying
before the chariot. This beautiful orna
ment was made almost entirely of gold
and was elaborately decorated with pre
cious stones.—St. Louis Republic.
There are certain explosives of high
power which, when heated, burn quietly
if freely exposed, or if confined explode
only at thp sput where iieat is applied
without the whole mas* taking part in
tho explosion. Nitroglycerol, dynamite,
gun cotton, picric arid and tho new
German military powder arc examples.
This is said to he became they are bad
conductors of their own explosive wave.
If, however, tlio samo substances are
subjected to a violent shock by the ex
plosion in their midst of initial charges
of mercury fulminate, tho shock scorns
to affect all the molecules of the explo
sive at once, and the whole mass of tho
latter explodes with enormous violence.

The Tearl Oyster.
Very few people are awaro that the
pearl oyster is not in any way like the
oysters which we eat. It. is of an entire
ly different species, and us a matter of
fact the shells of the to called pearl oys
ters are of far moroTalne to those en
gaged in pearl fishing than the pearl*.
There are extensive pearl fisheries in the
gulf of California, and some of the finest
pearls have been taken from those wa
ters. In 1881 one pearl— a black one
was sold for $10,000, and every year
since that time many pearls have been
taken from the beds in the California
gulf valued at over $7,500 each.—Chica
