icnoy bill, which lint been under ilehuto
In the house Tor iihout two weeks, wus
lgnomlnlou.iy ditched to-day. It had not
strength enough to surmount the first
parliamentary obstacle placed In Us psithi
The committee on rules, In obedience to
the decree of the Democratic caucus on
Monday, brought In nn order to close
general debate mid proceed under the llve
mlnute rule until Saturday, when the final
vote should bo taken, but the supporters
of the bill showed lamentable weakness.
They were unable to order the previous
question, the demand therefore being re
fused, llrst by a rising vote ot 92 to 101,
and then on an yea and nay vote by 121
tn 129. The advocates of the bill worq
dumbfounded when they .discovered that
they had been beaten In the preliminary
skirmish and the order was withdrawn.
This was the (lrst reverse the commlttoo
on rules bad suffered In four years. An
analysis of the vote shows that all of the
121 votes In favor of the motion were cast
by Democrats, while S2 Republicans, 00
Democrats anil S Populists voted against
It. Of the 39 Democratic votes against
the motion. It was pointed out that 21
were cast by Democrats defeated for re
election. After the vote, diplomatic and

There was a Rood attendance on the
Moor of the house when Speaker Crisp
diopped the Ravel to-day, as notice had
been Riven, that a special order to ter
minate general debate on the currency bill
would be reported from the committee on
rules and the prevailing belief was that
the late of the bill would be determined
to-day. The conference report on the mil
itary academy appropriation bill was
adopted on motion ot Mr. Outhwalte,
.Mr. Kobblns (Dem., Ala.) asked unani
mous consent to consider the senate bill
gn ntlnR American registry to the steamer
Kmpress ot Philadelphia, but Mr. Bnker
(P.ep., N. II.) objected and Mr. English
(Dem., N. II.) demanded the regular order.
As soon as. the committees had been
railed for reports, .Mr. Outhwalte pre
sented the special order from the commit
tee on rules. The order provided for the
closing of general debate In the considera
tion ot the Springer substitute as an
original bill under the tlve-mlnute rule
to-day, to-morrow and Friday until 2:0'!
j). in., when It is provided for the report
of thn, bill and pending amendments tu
te.e house for final vote on Saturday Im
mediately after the morning hour.
Mr. Outhwalte demanded the previous
question, when the rending of the rule had
been completed. Some confusion was caused
by tho volley of questions from members
which followed Mr. Outliwalte's demand,
members being anxious to ascertain the
mains of amendments after the adoption
il" the order.
Mr. Springer, chairman of the committee
on banking and currency, assured the gen
tleman that thero would be no disposition
to shut out membeis.
.Mr. Outhwalte made a brief speech, urg
ing the, necessity for closing the debate
on tho currency bill, anil for disposing ot
It. In order that more pressing measures
like the NIcnragtiaii canal bill might bo
Mr. illand wanted to know If an oppor
tnlty to olfer an amendment to strlko out
the enacting clause (which would kill tho
bill) would bo given.
.Mr. Outliwalto said the rule discriminat
ed against no amendments mid Mr. Spring
er again assured tho houso there would bo
i'o disposition lo cut off members with
amendments, but Mr. Illand was not satis
fied, mid Insltcd that a provision be In
serted In the rule, or an agreement be had,
by which a vote could bo had on his amend
ment. .Mr. Heed, III some caustic remarks, said
lie thought tho situation a very unfortuu

be, "as to the proper method of getting rid

Thu roll call uas watched with Intense
Interest, but the announcement of the re
sult ot tho vote only continued the defeat
of tho advocates of the measure. The sup
porters of the bill made desperate, elfort to
secure a majority of the votes, but the
previous question was again rejected, 12.'
lo 129. Tho advocates of the bill bad suf
fered their lirst parliamentary rever.se.
Tho failure to order the previous question
throw the special order open to amend
ment. Though there was no demonstration
from tho opponents ot the bill, Its advo
cates were panic stricken, realizing that
the vote given probably sealed tho doom
of the currency bill. Mr. Outhwalte im
mediately nro&o and withdrew tho special
Mr. MrCreary, chairman of the commit
tee on foreign affairs, moved to go Into
committee of the whole for the considera
tion of tho diplomatic appropriation bill
und It was carried without division. The
currency bill had been abandoned at least
temporarily to give the suppoiters of the
bill an opportunity to reform their lines.
It had all happened so quickly that It was
some tlmo before members were able to
realize that the struggle was over.
Tho houso then settled quietly down to
tho consideration of the diplomatic appro
priation bill. .Mr. McCreary explained its
provisions briefly. Only a few changes
were made. Mr. McCreary nlfered an
amendment lo establish a. consulate at
Krzejouni, Armenia, at a salary of $1,500.
Mr. llltt moved a consulate nt Ilarpool,
Turkey. These amendments led to a ref.
erenee to the lecent slaughter III Armenia.
Mr. llltt with Intenso feeling urged the
necessity for protecting missionaries who
were cut down like sheep. Haipool w.w
tho nearest point lo thu scene of these
slaughters. Doth amendments were adpot-
Without fuither amendment the commit
tee rose and the bill was passed.
The postolllco nppropilatlon bill was then
taken up. Tho bill, as explained by Mr.
Henderson, chairman of thn committee on
postolllees and post roads, esinled yj,ll.',
152, or $I,K16,330 lefes than tho estimates, but
$2,2'J,3.';i more than the appropriation for
tho current year. The estimated receipts
for tho next yeur were $2,r3,ni.l less than
the sum carried by the bill.
.Mr. QiiIbb dtep., N- V.) offered an
amendment to a paragraph Included in
the lukt postolllco appropriation bill re

Introduced - Srnato
Jefferson City, Mo., Jan. 0. (Special.)
The house convened at 10 n. in. Moore,
ot Stone, offered n resolution recalling tho
defeated motion ot the house of ISM, In
which nn attempt was made to remove
from the walls of the hoiuc a portrait ot
(leneral Nathaniel Lyons, nnd to replace
It by a portrait of ex-C.overnor Sterling
Price. The present resolution was to the
effect that a life-sized portrait of (leneral
Nathaniel Lyons be. furnished by the com
missioners ot permanent seat of govern
ment, nnd bo placed upon the walls over
looking the members. The resolution was
supported by Murray, of Holt. There
upon John T, Crisp, ot Jackson, arose to
oppose tho resolution. He snld: ".Mr.
Speaker, Is the war of the rebellion never
to end? Are those who are reputed hu
man, men or wolves? When shall wo
hear the last of the war? Shall It never be
until wo like Hoin.itis of old kill without
remorse and utterly that miserable hordn
of Jackals which follow In the wake ot
the heroes of battle, of real men?" He
apologized for the absence of Lyons' por
trait, by saying It had been taken to the
armory for better keeping. Mr. Crisp may
not liuvo known that tho armory Is a
rfamp 'building, and that dampness Is
'destructive of oil paintings. The ltnll of
representatives, on the other hand, Is al
ways quite dry. He said he had aided to
decorate alike the graves of t'nlon und
lebel soldiers. He believed 111 the Union.
He would much regret to sec the Issues
and the passions of thirty years ago
resurrected.' He declared himself ready to
vote a pioper appropriation, to secure a
life-sized portrait of Abraham Lincoln
to bang In this hall. He loved Lincoln.
Tubbs, of Osage, moved as a substitute
for the resolution that the portrait ot
(leneral Lyons be restored to the walls
of the house. The substitute prevailed.
Pettljohn, ot Linn, moved a resolution
that the visiting committee, appointed by
the governor, to visit nnd report upon the
vendition of state Institutions, be granted
tvo weeks from this date In which to
make report. Adopted.
Tubbs. of Osage, moved ns a substitute
the stnte auditor ns to whether warrants
lias been Issued to J. W. Xeveley for
services as state librarian, while he was
In St. Louis doing duty as secretary ot
the state Democratic central committee,
Moran, ot liuchanan, opposed the roso
lutlon. He said he thought members were
sent here to do business nnd not to creato
partv discord. He thought Inquiry Into
the fnlthfurperformance of duty by any
appointee of the supremo court should bo
made by the supreme court.
Mr. Tubbs In reply reminded the house
that tho plain letter of the law Is that
an elective or appointive officer receiving
compensation for his services must de
vote his entire time to the duties of his
position. He thought It was a matter of
notoriety that Mr. Zeveley had been ab
sent from his duties for nearly three
months, and during that time bad acted
as secretary of the Democratic state cen-.
trnl committee. He simply wanted to
know whether Mr. Zeveley had received
pay for services be did not render.
Mr Davlsson, of Texas, moved to lay the
resolution on the table. Motion to lay on
table prevailed. Hepubllcans generally Blip
ported the motion to lay on table for the
reason, ns Davlsson, of Texas, Hnrt, of
pmnnm. and others said that the resolu
tion ot Inquiry was trivial in character and
Sarter, or Her.ton, movqd that the In
vitation to the members of the bouse In
a body to visit tho university at Columbia
free of expense be accepted, the curators
having olfered five entertainment and free

cepted, mid time for the visit tlxed at

Iteed's Hub's Adopted.
After 12 m In the house, the most Im
portant act of any session of late years
occurred. Heed's manual of rules was
adopted, with some very slight difference.
At 12 o'clock, Speaker ltussell called Itoth
well, of Pettis, to thu chair, ond submitted
the report of the committee on rules, when
"Your committee recommends me adop
tion ot Heed's manual."
An Intense Interest wa manifested. Mem
bers expected a light. Then Davis, of
Taney, asked for a reading. Mr. Freeman
asked for a icreadlng. Mr, Tubbs moved
a substitute, which was defeated. Mr.
Itothwell arose to explain that Heed's rules
dlfl'eied from Smith's manual only In a few
matters, and Mr. Drabello explained that,
us the world has grown. advanced, rules of
parliamentary procedure aro needed. A
.Mr. Dr.ibelle, unconsciously to his Demo

The I'rctiotl tJnetlon.
JelTerson City, Mo., Jan. 9. (Special.) Un
der previous legislatures It required a Iho
thlrds vote to move the previous question
and shut off debate In the senate. The
Democrats of the senate 111 caucus adopted
a rule requiring only n majority vote lo
move the previous question under the Idea
that the Itcptibllcuns would tiy to kill n
bill by talking It lo (Until, and the Demo
crats would not have the necessary two
thirds to shut off debate.
As no mere partisan legislation can pass
the general assembly nothing Is gained to
tho Democrats by this move and it may
work disastrously to them some day when
the Hepubllcans happen to have a majority
In the senate, owing to Democratic ab
senteeism. COST OF CAPTURING BANDITS,

all have been contracted since the be

During the last fiscal year many such

Aln for the Purchase and l'olu.ii;e of Scl
eral Hundred Million- of Miter us
ll ColiipniiiiUe With the
White .Metal .Men.
Washington, Jan. 9. Many of the Demo
cratic senators received the announcement
of the adverse vole on the currency bill
as a summons to the senate to take the
question up nnd find a way out of the
dllllcutles with which the country llnds
Itself surrounded. Senator Voorhees took
tho first step for formal consideration of
the matter by Issuing a call for the meet
ing nt the llnancc committee to be held
tn-morioiv for the purpose of canvassing
the entire situation and If possible of de
vising means ot Improving the condition of
the treasury. So far as can be learned no
meastiie has been prepared for admission
to the committee, but the movers for the
meeting hope a genernl exchange of views
on tlie part ot the members of the com
mittee will Indicate general lines upon
which a bill may be framed which would
stand a chance of receiving the approval
of the committee nnd of the senate.
It Is also understood Senator Vest has
III mind the outline of a plan for a bill
which he may submit to the comnilttee
and which may prove Ihe basis of futuie
action, The two principal features ot the
plan lire: First, to authorize the Issuance
of a sulllclent number ot low rate bonds to
retire the $.1IC.(Hjo.r) worth of greenbacks,
and, second, to provide for the purchase
and coinage of a sulllclent quantity or
silver to luctcase the silver Issuance to
$.0.0ti'.ii. which would be an Increase of
about JI.VI.OOO.iik). This Is suggested as a
compromise upon which the bond advo
cates and the silver men can agree, but the
scheme has not met general favor so far
as It has been canvassed. Some of the
sliver senators, notably the Hcpuhllrau
silver senalnrs.have taken the position that
they will accept nothing short of a pro
vision for unlimited silver coinage. They
will not Insist upon free coinage at a ratio
of Hi to 1, but are willing to' allow the gov
ernment a liberal seigniorage. They will
not ngiee, however, that any limit shall be
placed upon the amount to lie received on
the lenns agreed upon. It Is not known
how the ilnanee committee will stand upon
this proposition, but the sliver men be
lieve a poll of the committee will show a
majority friendly to that metal.
The Hepublli'nn members of the finance
committee do not regard the outlook as
promising for any action at all, .and they
predlrt there will be as great dlveigeiiey
of opinion ns among house members anil
they predict that it will be quite as Im
possible for the senate Democrats to nree
on any bill presented as It lias been for
tho houso to ngree on the Carlisle bill.
ARAPAH0ES WILL NOT HOE.
They Are (iolng lo Washington tn !et Some
Itellef from the Coieriilneiil.
Washington, Jan. 9. (Special.) The com
missioner of Indian affairs Is untitled (hut
a delegation of Cheyenne and Arapaho.
Indians will arrive soon to ask for some
rather novel legislation. These Indite-,
hail their lands allotted In severally, but
they were more familiar with raising hair
than pumpkins and string beans. The
could chuse almost nnythlii'f on earth but
a plow, but when it came down to that
feature of farming they were no'. In Ihe
push. As a consequence they devoted Hie
summer to roaming over the cointry eat
ing apples and living by the perspiration rt
somebody else's exert lotu, Willi's in the
winter they round themsc'.'es compelled lo
exist on a diet of i.nowb.illi and fiost
blttcn lenles. In the meantime the minis
were unimproved and could not be rented,
even tor the purpose ot covote s.inltaili.nis.
The f.nt is now said lo be evident to the
Indian commissioner that the cnvcnimeni
must do something for the relief ol these
Indians. It Is proposed the government
appropriate JPi,() per ye.i- for three ye.ir
to go toward hiipplyln.',- ihun with the
iiccessuncs oi inc. rue luiwrnmeni w'll
undei lake, according to this plan, to lc.it e
their farms far the year, have tlie'n im
proved, the ground hioken and crops tals
ed. While this is being done, the Indians,
It Is suppo-icd, will watch the proceedings
and have the benellt ot an object lesson
In manual training. At the expiration of
the lease It Is believed the Indians would
bo educated iqi to such a pitch that
they would naturally take to farming just
us a school boy does to skating on tho Ice.

that Chairman WINon will soon be asked

a disposition to relent. These bills would

on sugar Imported from countries paying
