THE SILVER FIGHT.
It Will Rage for Three Days
of This Week.
PEOSPECT OF A VERY WAEM TIME.
tXntls Decline to rinlge Theuiselres Not

the Speaker Lord Salisbury Replies
"No" to the Motlns Vivendi Proposal
An Immense Array of Figures for the -v ill show, will not be stated until the sub-
Senate Sub-Committee on Tariff to committee lias prepared its report, which
Wrestle with Notes from the Capital. it cannot do until the tables have been

No Keport Yet Prepared.
Of the prices of these various articles the
sub-committee has secured quotations cov

bill and for a year subsequent thereto

Washington, 'March 21. This week will
probably be the most exciting of the pres
ent session of congress, so far as the housa
Is concerned, as tomorrow the silver de
bate will betcfa and continue Wednes
day and Thursday. On these days the
house will meet at 11 o'clock, with a recess
from S until 8 and adjourn at 10 p. m.,
unless a change in the programme occurs.
A vote is expected Thursday.
That Arrangement Is "Off."
In the foregoing it is stated that there
will be only three days' debate on the bill,
when last week five or six days were ex
pected. Hut it is understood now that the
arrangement between the silver and anti
silver wings of the Democracy, by which
in return for a promise of the anti-silver
Men not to filibuster against the Bland
bill the time was extended from three to
five dfys, is off. 11 arte r was willing to
make the promise, but Tracey and ill
printed, and the matter is in a form for
consideration. Numerous requests have
ken made for the information obtained
by the committee by representatives in
congress for use in their tariff speeches,
but the meml era of the sti!-commit.tee do
not desire the matter to go out in piece
meal that way, and it will uot be made
public until presented in tlieir report.
Golnjr to Ex pimge Walker's Remarks.
Washington', March 21. The commit
tee on printing of the house has decided to
report a resolution to expunge from the
Congressional Record parts of the speech
of Representative Walker, of Massachu
setts, in whii-h that gentleman charged
Congressmen Williams, Hoar and othtrs
of his state with having practiced decep
tion and fraud. The point' is that these
remarks were never uttered in the house,
where the men attacked cou'd have had an
lams, who are in charge of the Detnocratio 0PPrtnnity lo reply to them, but were
opposition to the bill, retased thus to be lnf?rt1 ,n the 'ourd under "leave to
Donna. 1 lie time is to be divided among "
the parties so that the anti-silver Demo
crats anil Republicans will have half be
tween them. Abncr Tavlor of Illinois has
charge of the time for the Republicans,
Tracey for the anti-silver Democrats ami
Island for the silver men. I
Speakiqg of the probabilities of the sit-'

afraid they cannot get their nvm together at

Washington, March 20. The
committee of the senate finance
XUlttee which has been for some months
prosecuting an inquiry Into the effect of
tariffs past and present upon wages and
cost of living, is nearing the end of its
labors. The tangible result of the investi

Quotations, covering all parts of the coun

with the existence of the tariff. The fig

Something Was Mls-lnij.
Chicago, March 21. Kx-Senator T. M.
Dowen, of Colorado, forgot a fortune of
$!B,00O when he oozed out of a Turkish
bath at the Palmer house yesterday after
noon. A black porter found it and re
turned it to its owner. The name of this
abnormally honest porter is K. A. Watson.
Senator Iiovren owns gold mines and
things in Colorado and has been at the
Palmer house several days. He is a man
whsoe hair is gray.bnt he has not suffered
from ennui since he came to Chicago. He
opened his visit in the spirit of a veile.l
prophet procession, and after a mardi gras
festival and Venetian red carnival of a
time he closed last evening in the Palmer

thusiastic national convention.
Forgot That Canvas Vest.
Senator Uowen, next his shirt, wore a
canvas waistcoat, which fitted him tightly
find in which he had stowed away $13,000
in fresh green bills,$30,000 worth of coupon
londs and some western mining stock,
amounting in all to $03,000. The senator
had his bath yesterday afternoon and then
dressed and went up-stairs. He forgot all
about the canvas vest with the fortune in
it, and he didn't care anyhow. At6o'cloci,
when Porter Watson went to tidy up the
dressing rooms, he found the senator's de
sirable vest and examined its contents.
His eyes then stuck out from his face un
til he might have hung roller towels on
them. Then he lolted upstairs and gave
the waistcoat and the foitune to Chief
He Felt for That Roll.
When the senator came into the hotel
some time after a reporter asked him alxiut
his canvas vest, and his fortune. "Oh,
that's all right!'' replied the senator. Then
be fell into a jocular mood, and played
horse with the feelings of the newspaper
man who had learned of his los before he
himself was aware of it. Presently a
shadow flashed across his face, and throw
ing back his coat be began to pat himself
on the lungs and to feel his ribs. Then he
looked at the reporter and the reporter
looked at him. Kach desired to know how
the other felt, but bail a delicacy alwut
JUST A MERE BAGATELLE.
The Colorado Crons Not Wirried by a

The senator tore his vest open and began
to snap his suspender straps against his

ing way at Mr. Cunningham, who
' Funny, isn't it ':" observed the senator.
'"Lost something?" queried a sympa
thetic man who leaned against the coun
ter. 'Oh," said the senator, carelessly, "lost
my undershirt around somewhere." -
'Was it valuable asked the sympa
t hct ic man.
'Oh, worth about a hundred thousand
dolb.rs, that's all," replied Senator Bowcn.
The Senator Smells a Mice.
"Well, that's too bad," said the kind
"Yes, 'tis to be regretted," replied the
senator. Then he lea ned over the counter

At this oppressive moment Mr. Cuntng

When he tore it open he daintily plucked
out a 1,000 bill anil laid it down. Then he
placed another ?l,0nt dill on it, and an
