Washi.vgto.Vj Oct. 4. When the full
of tho president's navel opened the
senate yesterday there wore only
a foiv Ilcpubllcans nnd not a Demo
crat present, Tho lack of a quorum
was called to tho attention of tho
chair and after a delay of fifteen min
utes a quorum was obtained and the
regular business of the day was be
gun. The bill to repeal tho Sherman law
was then laid before tho senate and
Mr. White of California, said ho had
examined carefully tho Kan Iters' Mag
azine of August, 1873, and found the
statements made by Mr. Sherman yes
terday concerning a certain article in
that magazine to be correct and that
his quotation from thu publication
was erroneous. Ho also read from tho
Congressional Itecord to show Hint
tho statement as he had given it was
made as early us ISTh.
Mr. l)olh then continued his speech
begun Tuesday in support of tho re
peal bill, llo quoted fiom the mos
sigeof President Cleveland of lS'i.'i,
urging tho discontinuance of the pur
chase and coinage of silver un
der thu llland-AllUon act and
characterized this us a stronger
argument against tho uso of si ver
than ho was able to offer. He said ho
read it for the purpose of showing
that Democrats who advocated tho re
tention of tho Sherman act wcro
in accord witn their party leaders Ho
declared that tho success of thu Demo
cratic party with such a candidate and
such n platform was abundant evi
dence of tho fact that American peo
ple did not desire to coutlnu tho coin
ing of silver under tho cxUting condi
tions. Mr. Tellor interrupted Mr. Doli h to
nsk him what chance he thought there
was of securing any recognition of
hiiver under the administration of a
president who ho.ds the views ex
pressed by Mr, Cleveland.
To tlis Mf. Dolph replied that hu
(lid not oxpept that '-hero would ho
any legislation concerning silver un
der the present administration while
the conditions, remained as at present.
When tl)o Democratic party was in
tho minority i could aiTord to favor
fpee poiung!, but now that it hud u
pinjority t had necessarily become
gpnscrvaUvc qn the subject.
Mr. Tpllcr uslcud Mr. Dolpli if ho
)iad any reason to suppose that tho
president, had taken aiv steps looking
o secure, tho co-operation of nther na
tions. Ill the interest of silver. Mr
polpH ropllc.il tli'lt ho was not ac
quainted, with tho plans of tho admin
istration but )ad nq grqund tq sup
pose tljat tljo president was not now,
is formerly, fiipndl.y to the project for
jit) internal ojpH agreement. Ho eouli
pot doui)t Mr. Cleveland's gooij fuitl
when. le stated tl)ttt e doslrotj such
Mr- l'almur tqok lle bume vipw,
and wila disclaiming any authority
to represent tho president, ho had np
)oubt tho president regarded it as ey
son'tlul tlat' t)u I'nited States should
dutoriujno if qVl pqlioy with rcfor
pnep tn silver before inviting oth.-r
nations to confer upon the matter.
Tho llrussels monetary conference
was brought into tho discussion and
Mr. Allison, Republican, of Iowa, who
was one of tho delegates to the con
ference, said that while nearly nil tlm
delegates favored tho utilization of
gold and silver, they .vero not ready
to adopt the coinage of silver in their
own countries. Mr. Tower, Republican,
of Montana, then addressed the sen
ato in opposition to the bil1.
Mr. 1'almer, Demoera', of Illinois
then addressed tho senate. Congress
had been in Hcssiou eight weeks, ho
said, nnd It hud become a very in
teresting inquiry whether the senate
would at any time dispose of tho
question now before it. A contest of
pliy&lcal endurance made no allowance
for agu or helpH'sspess. Jp such a
contest, when his ancient friend from

Ht could see no end to tho discussion
uud know no metho.l by which it
could be terminated "The senate
ought to act and it ought to voto,"

Nr.W Om.iiANH, La , Oct 4. Tho
great storm of Monday has passed, and,
although tlio wires arc still down, bits
of intelligence continue to come In
from various parts which impart the
information that the loss of life, to
say nothing of tho destruction of
property, is tremendous. From
Hayou Cook, the great oyster field
which leads to tlie gulf, it is reported
that the settlements of the fishermen
have been completely demolished, and
that tho loss of life lias reached tlio
appalling (Iguro of 200.
ISi anil Isle, a summer resort lying
in the gu'f directly in tlie path of the
storm, is said to have been utterly de
stroyed, nnd it is known that tlio loss
of life Is large.
In tlie parish of Plaquemino the
villages of liohtmla and Shell Reach
were wined out, ami at least four
lives lost in each place. On both
sides of thu river tlie sugar, rice mid
orange crops suffered a great deal of
damage, and on the west side the los
of life is reported to have been very
great. It will be some days befo o
the full extent of the damage wrought
will be known, but it is feured here
tint the grand total will pale into in
significance the number of deaths ie
ported fiom tlie storm which recently
devastated tlie Atlantic coast.
Tlie upper limit of Ilia storm was
not more than a dozen miles above tlio
city. The losses Include tho ferry
boat Jerome Ila:iley, thoslcum launch
Shannon, (Iraee Pitt, a steimbo.it nnd
half a dozen loaded eoul barges be
longing to Pittsburg firms all went
down. 1'loctrlc wire o'es were top
Owing to tlio fact that all wire com
munication is temporarily interrupted,
nnd that no vessels of any description
have arrived from tlio remote sections,
the information is necessarily meager.
Yesterday a lone and ragged fisher
man, who had been a incmlmr of tlio
f.shing colony at Hayou Cook, where
(ill the oysters bearing that name aro
lishod, and which is located about
seven mi us hack of the Ruras settle
ment, reported to the keeper of tlio
locks of tlc canal that of tlu 100 peo
ple who composed the colony, but
thirty had succeeded in escaping tho
fury of the elements.
The loss of life, as far as a diligent
searc'i could ascertain foots up as
follows Ilclwccii Poiiit-a-la-IIache
find Rohcmia, four, Mrs. Leoncc La
Frapce and two babies and ( harlotto

jetties one James Care v. Tot il, eleven.
Tlie destruction of the oiange crop
is almost complete. The new fiuit is
badly Injured. The. sugar cane was
blown down, but as It Is ripe, it will
be cut and ground nt onco. Tho
negro church at Freetown was blown
down, and several halls were unroofed
or badly Injured at Algiers
Tlie damage by the storm in New
