The Sherman Silver Purchase
Law Now No More.
IT IS WIPED OUT OP EXISTENCE.
The IIouso Votes on Voorhoes' Moasuro,
Indorsing It by 101 Yens to 04 Rays.
Clcvolund Will Sign It and Congress Ad
journ. Washington. Nov. 2. There were
but comparatively few spectators in
tbo galleries when the house met, but
the attendunco of representatives
showed a largo majority present.
Edward B. Bagby of Virginia, the
newly olectod chaplain, was sworn in
by the speaker.
At 12:12 house bill No. 1 (the Wilson
repeal bill), with the "Voorhees amend
ment, was laid boforo the house and the
amendment read by the clerk.
Immediately Mr. Wilson (Dem., W.
Va.) moved that the senate amendment
be concurred in and on that motion de
manded the previous question.
An effort was made to secure the
yeas and nays on a motion by Mr.
Bryan that whon the houso adjourned
it be until Friday; but only 28 mem
bers rose not a sufficient number. An
other motion by Mr. Ryan to adjourn
was voted down 23 to 185.
Mr. Bland said ho had hoped that the
bill would be permitted to proceed un
der the rules without asking for .the
previous quostion.
Mr. Wilson of West Virginia said
that the reason he felt compelled to
ask that the previous question be now
ordered was that if ho permitted the
bill to go to debate tho way would bo
open for all sorts of amendments, and
that he would lose control of it.
Tho weary round of motions to ad
journ to a certain day and to take a
recess continued until 1:15, whon tho
speaker took the reins in his hands
and put the motion on tho demand for
tho previous quostion and declared it
carried.
Then Mr. Bland, taking a stand in
tho center of the Democratic side, pre
sented his amendment to revive the uct
of 1837, providing for free coinago.
which was read at tho desk. Ha said
that the moneyed interests of tho
country, to force the pending legisla
tion, had precipitated a panic.
Tho Democratic party, in previous
contests, had stood almost solidly in
favor of limitod coinage of silver. He
offorod the amendment as the platform
upon which tho Democratic party of
the west and south would make its
fight in the future With tho rovival
of free coinage prosperity would, re
turn, and we can afford to' wait. All
the legislation forced before congress,
Mr. Bland asserted, had been "a stock
jobbing operation; and it was but
right, in his opinion, that the stocks
should fall as tho result of it.
Messrs. Tracy (Dem.. N. Y.J and
Wilson (Dem., W. Va.) closed the de
bate. At 1:53 the speaker put tho question
on Mr. Bland's motion to recommit
the bill, with instructions to add his
amendment reviving the free coinage
act of 1837, resulting: Yeas, 109; nays,
174.
The motion was then put on concur
ring in tho buuate amendment, with tho
result noted above.

THE PURCHASE OF SILVKH.
An Fngllshnian Snys London II us Prayed
For Us to St ip.
New York, Nov. 2. A Washington
special to a morning paper gives an
interview with Moroton Frowen, the
English binietallist. who is now a guest
of ono of tho moinbors of tho British
legation. Mr. Frowen says:
"If the prico of silver bullion falls, as
I expect will be the case, that drags
down the exchange rates with tho far
oast, which are already at a snapping
point, aud we shall havo a panic before
the now year, a panic you will feel in
every corner of this continent."
"Then you don't favor the view that
tho repeal of tho act will bring buying
orders from London to Wnll street?"
"No. London will bo a seller for n
long time to come. Wo are in great
trouble in Australia and in India. Our
export trade with China, Singapore
and South America is nlrpady paralyzed
by the fall in the rates of silver ex
change. London has been praying that
you will stop your silver purchases,
thinking that then your stock market
may recover so that sho may send you
home your securities realized at higher
prices. We are in no position
to buy; tho great English man
ufacturing fortunes have suffered
terribly. When we in England have
financial troubles, times are bad and
prices aro depressed, so that your ex
ports to England fall off und your im
ports remaining tho same, gold loaves
you. To borrow gold in Englaud and
to bring it here inevitably turns the
balance of trade against this country.
It would turn it even in the faco of a
great harvest; so that tho gold bogins
to liow back again on tho nearest snip.
Austria is trying to get gold and hold
it in this way. Weckherle, her finance
minister, is an intelligent man, but
knows nothing whatsoever about tho
theory of tho foreign exchanges.
Mr. Goschen told him three years
since that, while Austria cdhld borrow
gold, that she could never keep it ex
copt under lock and key, and it is still
all under lock and key, but 'gold is al
ready at a premium in the dual mon
archy. Unlock tho treasury doors and
it will disappear at onco. And you
here will discover also that, with wages
and prices in England falling by leans
and bounds to try to bring British gold
here, is merely to pour wator in a
sieve."
ATMOSPHERE SPREADING.
Several Crnnlis Discovered at Wheeling,
West Virginia.
Wheeling, Nov. 2. The atmospheric
or other conditions which aro iuflaming
tho cranks of the country have struck
this city. Monday it was only good
luck that prevented two murders by
this claso of usually "harmless luna
tics." Tuesday "Mag" Robinson, a
negro3S, entered Dr. Stillyards' office
and asked for treatment. Tho doctor
turned his back a minute whereupon
tho woman drow n hatchet from under
her cloak andjstruck him on tho head.
Fortunately it was a glanciug blow,
and a lump like a billiard ball was tho
result. The doctor disarmed the
woman and turned her over to tho
police. Sho explained her act by say
ing that she was tho spook of a woman
Dr. Stillyard had poisoned two weeks
ago. The doctor bad nover seen her
before.
A weok ago a dynamite cartridgo was
found in the city hall, and but for the
forethought of the jnuitress would
havo blown the buildiug sky high. The
polico have boen looking for the dyna
miter and yesterday arrested George
Hoenlo, another harmless lunatic.
Hoehlo was fired out of tho White
House at Washington twice, once whilo
trying to see Mr. Harrison and again
while hunting Mr. Cleveland. Within
a week ho has written to every city and
county official, every pastor and soveral
policemen, threatening all with death.
Tuosday Rev. Dr. Swope received a
letter Baying he could preach ono more
sermon, and if it was not satisfactory
tho writer would blow uj the church.
A lotter to Officer Mornn threatened to
cut his throat on sight. These letters
caused Hoohle's arrest while ho was
prowling about Moran'a house. Ho will
bo sont to an asylum.
POTTER PALMER'S GIFT.
The Ladles Went Fairly Beside Them
selves When Thov Ilcurd cif It.
CniCAQO, Nov. 2. Potter Palmer has
given 200,000 to build a woman's me
morial building on the lake front. This
fact was announced by his wife as the
crowning ond of tho closing ceremony
in ttio woman's ouilding at tho fair.
The gift so completely nonplused the
board of lady mnnugor.i that for more
than a minute the audience was
hushed.
Then the onthusiasm broke out with
a wild huzza. Those on tho stage
rushed to Mrs. Palmer and grasped her
hands and fell upon her neck. The
scattering men cried "Bravo I" and for
five minutes tho sepulchral sadness of
tho fuueral occasion was loudly brokou
with cheers for tho benefactor and
shouts for his wife. It has now become
quite the fashion to be princely gener
ous toward tho peoplo and the Chica
goans aro boginning to cry long live tho
commercial kings.

with astonishing rapidity, and tho

ever over tho project
BDSINESSBETTER.
The Dry Goods Trade Begins to
Look Up.
IMPROVEMENT ALL AROUND.
The Now York Journal of Commerce niul
Commercial Advertiser Giro n Very
Kncournglnc; Ilevlew of tho Dry Goods
Trndo Tho Pnsnngo of tho Kopcnl Hill
Having Its Effect.
New York, Nov. 2. The Journnl of
Commerce and Commercial Bulletin, in
its weekly review of the dry gooda
trade, says:
Tho week closes with an improved all
around tone. Tho pussago of tho repoal
bill through tho senate has put an end
to many weeks of anxiety and weary
waiting, and the relief felt, although
confined to sentiment as yet, is expect
ed to express itself from now forward
in a gradual oxpansion of business.
This is less likely to be seen in the
balance of tho fall trudo than in making
provision for spring requirements, as
there have been many indications of
late that a considerable amount of buy
ing has been held back.
So far as tho past weok's business ia
concerned, the only new feature .of im
portance has boen tho greater readiness
on the part of somo of tho most confi
dent buyers to place orders for spring
lines, and an increased business for
future delivery has beon dono in cot
ton and woolen and worsted dress fab
rics. Staple cottons havo continued in little
better than hand-to-mouth demand for
home trade, but export grades .have
sold well. In clothing woolens business
has proved quite as disappointing as in
any recent week. Prices of cotton
goods are generally steady and quota
tions havo remained unaltered. The
general financial condition of trade is
favorably roported upon.
Collections on all hands have proved
decidedly satisfactory, and a marked
abatement of uneasiness in tho woolen
goods department regarding accruing
liabilities is noted. Business in staple
cottons is generally reported fully equal
to tho preceding week, but rarely is an
increase thereon recorded.
A DYING PEOPLE.
Traveler llrlghum Prophesies tho Futuro
of South America.
Battle Creek, Mich., Nov. 2. Ed
ward M. Erigham, tho traveler and
lecturer of this city, has returned from

ful in the strugglo of life is the Anglo
Saxon nnd it will tako the Anglo-Snxon
to redeem and develop the countries of
South America.
EIGHT HOURS.
Uoston Carpenters Finally Win Their
Battle.
Boston, Nov. 2. On and after today
tho 4,500 carpenters of Boston will work
but eight hours per day. The eight
hour day has been in controversy be
tween the carpontor builders and the
union carpenters of this city since May
1, 18S0, during which time thoro have
been two strikes of several weeks in
each instance.
Throughout the entire contention tho
union carpenters havo never lost hope
of ultimately securing thoir object. In
February last tho carpenters took up
the issue for a third timo, and instead
of preparing for a strike, all thoir ener
gies wero devoted to securing recogni
tion; also, a conference with represent
atives of that organization. On July
10 tho concession was made nnd went
into effect today.
