The Silver Debate Finally Endod
In the Senate.
.THE EE?EAL
BILL
'PASSED.
tTncondltional
Repeal of the' Shorinan
Law raised the Senate, the Vote IJelng
Yea?, 43j Nays, 32 pad of a Debate
. That tasted Sixty-One Day.
, Washington, Oct. 81. At 7:20; by a
vote of 48' to 82, the senate after one of
the most "remarkable and'momorablo
parliamentary battles of a generation,
' passed the bill unconditionally repeal
ing the purchase clauBo of the Sherman
f silver law. The end was reached at
the conclusion of a continuous session
of 14 days; after CI days of debate,
during which five volumes of the con
gressional record had been fillod with
epoecnes amounting in the aggregate
to about 20,000,000 words, a stream of
talk that would stretch in cold type
from tho seaboard 1,000 niilos in tho in
terior, from Liberty Enlightening' tho
"World in Now Yoik harbor, to the
foothills of the Rocky mountains.
The closing day of "tho groat struggle
for the repeal of tho puro.Ti.iRA of silver
was ono of intense excitement. Tho
galleries were packed to tho doors,
every seat in the senate was occupied
and tho walls were lined with repre
sentatives from the lower branch of
congress. Tho regis of senatorial
.courtesy was no protection in the last
moments. Grey-haired men, ipflamod
by the fiery passions that always chnr
terize tho close of a bitter contest, did
not spar? each other.
Senator Morgan with words that
fairlyburnedheaped his denunciation
on Senator Voorhees, tho leader of tho
administration forces, and Senator
Wolcott, the Colorado Hotspur, con
cluded a fierce phillipic against Sona
tor Carey with tho Spanish proverb of
Goncho Panza, that it was a waste of
lather to shave an asa. .
The silver Republicans, Teller, Stew
art, 'Dubois, Wolcott and Jones, Peffer,
the Populist, and Morgan, and the old
war governor of Tennessee, Harris,
each mado his valedictory.
The Democrats wero hot ana angry
at tho desertion of some of their col
leagues that mado their defeat possi
ble,the Populists admonished tho sen
ate that tho doom of silver was the
doom of tho old parties, but there was
something tragically pathetic in the
despairing cry of tho silver senators.
It meant, they said, ruin and destruc
tion and desolation to the Bilvor pro
ducing states.
Senator Jones, with an emphasis that
will never bo forgotton by those who
hoard him, warned those about him
that the end of tho fight marked but
the beginning of tho battle that would
bo waged boforo tho people. In tones,
deep and tragic, he repeated Dundee's
famous defiance of Gordon :
There be. bills beyond Pentlnnd,
And friths beyond Forth;
If there be lords in the .lowlands
There bo chiefs in the north.
Senator Stewart had the last word
when the white-bearded Nevadian,
looking an anciont patriarch, sank back
in his seat Vice President Stevenson,
for tho last .time, announced that tho
bill was before the senate for amend
ment. He-paused. Senator Voorhees,
the Tall Sycamore of tho Wabash,
nroso. The decisive moment hnd como.
The vice president flashed his eye about
tho chamber. Tho galleries leaned
over. The ilood of light from thoglass
panoled ceiling poured down upon the
senate. Tho -chamber was still as
-death. Not a soul stirred. Every one
seemed .to hold Ids breath. "If thero
are no further amendments," said tho
vice president, slowly and solemnly,
"the clerk will call the roll." ,
"Mr. Allen," began the clerk. The
suspense .was over. The Rubicon had
been passed. Tho nl was at last be
ing called on tho final passage of tho
bill. From all over the chamber cam
a sjgh of reliof. Mr. Bland, tho silver
chainpiod of the house, stood like a
statue behind the senate desks while
tho roll-was called. '
Mr. Sherman mid Mr. Voorhees fac
ing each other bolt upright did not
move a muscle. Mr. Feller stroKoa ins
beard, Mr. Mills and Mr. CockrHl
paced impatiently up and down the
area in front' of the vice president's
chair. Mr. Hill sat in the front row
talking to-his late antagonist, Mr. But-
It took almost Id minutes to call the
roll and arrange the pairs; When the
vice president announced tho voto u.r.
Voorhees straightened up to hiB full
longth. It was n personal victory for
hinu "I now move," said he, with a
, note cf triumph in his voico, "that tho
senate adjourn until tomorrow at 12
o'clock. Boforo the question could ,bo
put tho occupants Cf tho gnUorles wero
jostling each other in their attempts to
crowd out of tho doors. Tho senators
fled from tho chamber. In 00 sooonds
nono but a fow employes roinamed
upon tho sceno. Tho long battlo wa3

MURDERER PRENDERGAST INDrOTED.
Tho Slayer of Mayor Harrison Found,
Qullty by tho Grand Jury.
Chicago, Oct. 81. Murdoror Pren
dergast was formally indicted by tho1
grand jury. Inspoctor Shea was the1
only witness. Prendijrgast was quietly
smoking a cigar when told by a jailor
ofr tho indictment. The prisoner took"
tho cigar from his mouth and re
marked: "Well 'r"
Tho members of Mr. Harrison's im
mediate family wore more composed
and went for a short drive in tkoaf ter
noon. Mrs. PoaBley, the mayor's daugh
ter, left her room for tho first timo
sinco tho tragedy.
It is probable that tho city council at
its mooting next Monday will beoblicred
to call a special election for mayor to
bo held some time not less than 20 days
from that meeting and within a reason
able timo. It is also probable that at
that mooting tho aldormen will elect
one of their number to servo as mayor
until such time as anothor mayor shall
be elected by tho .pooplo, and that tho
member so chosen will be vestod with
nil tho powers, rights and privileges of
o roguiany cnoson cniex executive,
All day Corporation Counsel Kraualnounco that when tho sun sets the
and his assistant searched tho statutes
for some clause or sootin bearing upon
'tho present emergency. Tho result
was tho finding of a section of tho old
city charier providing just for such an
emergency as hasv now nrisen. Tho
new city charter, adopted in 1872, un
tier which tho city government is now
being run,, provides that such sections
or provisions of the old charter as aro
not in conflicLwith the new city char
ter, shall bo considered operative.
This soction of the old city charter
provides for the election of a temporary
mayor, who shall be vestod with the
full power of tho regular mayor by
the city council, and who shall servo
until a new mayor is regularly elected.
It provides furthor that the city council
shall call a special oloction for tho s '
lection of a new mayor "within 10 days
after the, vacancy ,had occurred.
Under tho provisions of tho election
law a special election may be held with
20 days notice, the only provision bo
ing that the names of tho candidates
must bo'cerMfied to the board of elec
tion commissioners 15 days prior to the
day of tho election. It is possiblo,
therefore, to elect a successor to tho
offico made vacant by the late Mayor
Harrison before tho first day of De
cember. THE WRATTEN MURDERS.
It Is Ilelleved That Stone Will BIuUo
Another Confession.
JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind., Oot. 81. y
There are, so far, no new development
in the Wratfn murdor case, and Will
iam Stone, the self-confessed murderor,
sticks to his lost confession, 'but those
who .know him best thick ho is at any
moment liable to come forth with an
othor one.
Ho passed the Sunday roading tho
Bible, praying, and wooping some, and
.telling that the Lord has saved him.
A great number of poople think it ut
terly impossible that Stone should havo
killed the six Wrattens himself, but
whether .he did or not, it is certainly
not impossible, some of the most noto
rious, murders of the century having
been committed bv one Person.
Many will recall the horrible Probst
murdor noar Philadelphia, Probst kill
ing five grown poople. Tho Parks

number of peoplo wero slaughtered.
was also presumably committed by one
person, uiougn tuo mystery was novnr
cleared. ,Two negroes wero lynched
for the crime, bu.h they did not confess,
and thoro is much doubt whether they
did tho deojcl.

WORLD'S FAIR LAST DAY.
Tho Denth of Mayor Harrison FuU a
Damper on All lVHtlvltlos.
Chicago, Oct, 31. The official life
of tho world's fair has ended. Yester
day ovoning was to havo been ono of
gaiety and dazzling brilliancy, but the
death of Mayor Harrison changed all
that. Tho meeting at Festival hall
during tho afternoon was brief. The
audience was detained just long enough
to hear an .earnest prayer by the Rev.
Mr. Barrows, a few explanatory re
marks regarding tho change of pro
gram by President Palmer, the reading
of an- appropriate speech by President
Higinbotham and the resolutions of
Bympatuy concerning Carter Harrison's
untimely end,
These resolutions wero read by H. N.
Higinbotham, president of the world's
Columbian exposition, who began in a
cleari'jGrm voico, which grow husky
and trembled 'for a moment with
emotion when. a. certain passago in the
resolutions was reached. Mr. Harrison
and Mr. Higinbotham had long been
associated.
The fair .was .declared closed bv
Thomas W. Palmer, president of the
national commission, In tho following
words: "It was intended to close this
fair simultaneously with tho sound of
this gavel, the firing of artillery and
the lowering of tho flag. All that has
been changed by tho Bad circumstances
wnicn wrings us together now." J. an
closing "will be niaricod only by a salute.
and the hauling down of tho flag.
When that takes placo I declare, in
obodienco to the act of congress, tho ex
position is officially closed."
Boforo giving the benediction .Rov.
Mr. Barrows announced that ho had
been requested by the committeo to
read the speech President Higinbotham
had written for this day prior to Mr.
Harrison's demise. Tho speech was as
follows: x
"This is not tho timo for oratory. A
duty calls us togother which wo must
porform, though it fills us with sad
ness. Tho hour iR at hand when our
Festival must close, and when tho
matorial things of which it is composed
must turn back to tho four quarters of
tho globe, and tho structures which
sheltered them to tho elements out of
which thoy woro created.
"This is not the timo for exultation
over our victory except in so far as to
recognize that without the favor of tho
God that guided the frail craft of the
voyager, 4D0 years ago. to this land, it
could not havo been achieved. Exulta
tion would be undignified. Gratitude
to the Almighty is tho only feeling that
I can harbor in my breast except tho
sorrow which this closing hour evokes.
Wo aro turning our backs upon tho
fairest uream or civilization, and aro
about to consign it to the dust It is
like tho death of a doar frioud. It is
like bidding farewell to one's youth.
It is liko all those times in tho lifo of a
man when tho thoughts of tho present
aro choked with tho emotions of tho
past.
"At such times the call of duty,
alone, can uplift tho heart and arouso
it to meet tho things that aro yet to
come. That call is upon each one of us
now. It echoes in tho hearts of all that
havo been touched by theso wonders
which God has brought to pass. It bids
us learn the lessons of tho past season
to tho everlasting benefit of ourselves
and our children. It bids us appropri
ate to oursejves tho imperishable parts
of thiB high foast of tho arts, industries
and Bcionces, and so embalm them in
memory's treasure house, so that thoy
may bo best preserved and produce the
largest fruit in tho generations to
come.
"Let us ko forward to meet the
aunes or tue iuturo witnout tear; sus
tained by the faith that what we havo
wrought -will endure and forover stand
as a beacon light, guiding others to
loftier heights and greater achieve
ments. , Following aro tho resolutions that
wero adopted :
"A deop and heartfelt sorrow has
fallon upon tho closing hours of the
'world's Columbian exposition. Death,
como as it may, loaves as a heritage to
tho living, mental pain and Buffering,
immeasurably intensified when ita
agonoy is a cowardly and infamous as
sassin. "Nothing has ovor occurred in onr
midst that has so disturbed and dis
tressed our citizens as the very wicked
and wanten termination of the lifo of
'Hon. Carter H. Harrison. The tran
quility of tho city has been shaken as
if by an earthquake. Tho officials of
tho world's Columbian exposition, tho
commissioners and representatives of
all foreign countries, and the commis
sioners of tho soveral states mourn the
loss of an honored official, and lay upon
tho altar presorved and kept sacred his
moinory in the hoarts of all his friends,
this humblo tributo of respect and
admiration.
"Speaking for all hero assembled,
reprosotitatives of tho various interests
that havo made this exposition so
grandly successful both in its national
and international character, wo claim
that Carter H. Harrison was something
more than chief magistrate of this
metropolitan city. As a diroctor of tho
world's Columbian exposition ho at all
times sought to impress upon tho ox-
position its truo national and interna
tional charactor and to omphasizo tho
fact that it was promotod by and in
tho interest of tho people of all tho
world.
"To all opr friends, without distinc
tion of raco or nationality, his welcomo
has boon cordial, gonorous and un
stintod, and none in his reproseutativo
capacity could havo more thoroughly
attested the generous hospitality of
this city, whose chief magistrate he
was. '
"Your committee bogsloavo to submit
the following resolutions:
Rkbolvkd, That tho foregoing minutes
be adopted by u, ftem.blyl.wnslstinK of
the otlluinii or tne woiid'n Columbian cOm
mlsslon, tho world's Columbian exposition,

joint committeo on resolutions, be trans

brother, Carter H. Harrison, and that
copies thereof bo also delivered to the
world's Columbian commission and the
world's Columbi .1 exposition. Be it
further,
Resolved, That wo commend and ap
prove tho order of tho director general re
scinding the order heretofore Issued for
closing ceremonies, but we deem it proper
and advisable that tho soveral officers ap
pointed to address this assembly upon tho
several subjects assigned them respective

A NEW YORK MAN SHOT.
Tho Would-Ue AssuaMn After a Desperate
Struggle Locked Up in tho Police Sta
tion Another Crank Demand Five
Thnuiiund Dollars of Kdwjn Gould.
New Yoiik, Oct. 81. At 3:30 o'clock
yesterday afternoon a crazy man emu
lating the example of the man who. on
Saturday nintht shot down and killed
Mayor Harrison, firod two shots from
a 0-barrelled rovolver into tho stomach
of a man whom he, in his insanity,
imagined had done him a wrong. Tho
man who was shot was Frederick
Matthies. Tho man who did tho shoot
ing is said to bo named Thomas Brad
ley. Matthies is superintendent of con
struction of the new Postal Telegraph
building at Murray street and Broad
way. But for tho fact that 10 policemen of
the Broadway squad with their bodies
and batons defended tho prostrate,
bleeding, mangled and shrieking form
of tho would-be murderer, an in
furiated mob of over 1,600 men armed
with sticks, clubs and stones, would
havo lynched the fellow. The police
had all they could do to keep back the
struggling crowd, and, and, a3 it was,
many a head was cracked by tho police
in their struggles to got the crazy man
throuprh tho crowd.
The police cleared the place nnd
marched into the baEoment. Behind
the pile of cornice in the northeast cor
ner lay the man who had attempted to
murder Superintendent Matthies. They
took up poritions behind piles of cor
nice which had been rapidly thrown up
as breastworks. The man had hidden
himself behind a pile about 10 feet
high, 3 feet deep and about 10 feet
long. Tho man behind was crouching
very low down and in one hand he held
his pistol already cocked.
To scare tho man out the police opened
fire and about 20 shots woro fired. Tho
man did not como out at tho first vol
ley, but when a policeman got upon
top of tho pilo while the others wero
averting the mnn's attention and point
ed a piBtol at him already cocked, and
told him that unless ho camo out in
three minutes ho would bo a dead man,
the man threw up his hands. Tho po
liceman tool. Out his watch and called
out at tho end of ono minute; then at
tho eecoud minute. There was heard
an ominous clicking as ovory police
man in the crowd cocked his rovolver.
Tho man started out with all hasto.
Policeman Dan Gillespie made a rush
at tho man about 10 feot before ho got
to the exit of Broadwny and hit him on
tho head with his stick. Tho man,
Bhrieking and crying, striking out
right and loft with his fist, was felled
to tho groiind and half a dozen police
men foil on top of him. It required
three minutes' steady clubbing to sub
due the man, who struggled like a wild
cat. .Then ensued another wild rush
and tho crowd tried to got nt tho man
to lynch him. The policemen had tho
greatest difficulty in getting tho man
through tho crowd to the stationhouse.
From witnesses of tho shooting, tho
men who had been working at the place
all day long, it was learned that tho
man had been loafing around tho build
ing all day. Ho had boon hiding be
hind piles of bricks nnd saying that the
policemen nnd tho superintendent wore
after him, trying to murdor him for
stealing $500.
Tho men paid no attention to him.
At 8:30 o'clock the mau camo from be
hind a pile, and stepping up to tho su
perintendent, deliberately fired two
shots into his stomach. Then, waving
his umbrella and yelling for tho men
to keop back, he took rof ugo behind a
pilo of bricks.
Tho man was locked up in tho city
hall police station as a suspicious char
acter. He told the samo story about
the policeman trying to murder him
for $500 ho lud stolen. Matthies is in
a critical condition and will probably
dio within a fow hours.
AFTER EDWIN GOULD.
A Crank Calling on n Kuinbor of How
York Capitalists.
New York, Oct. 81. A cramk named
Mongolio Andrews prosentod himself
at tho Western Union building yester
day and demanded 5,000 from Mr. Ed
