Washington, July 18. A misunder
standing of some sort caused an exciting
scene in the senate Saturday. It seems
that Sanders had promised Harris that he
would offer no opposition to a bill Harris
tvanted passed, but when it came up San
ders offered an amendment which blocked
the bill, as there was not a quorum pres
ent, and Sanders demanded the ayes and
nays. Thereupon Harris, in very pointed
tones, expressed his surprise, but added:
"I will not sj.y why." He did not say why
publicly, but he crossed over to where
Sanders was seated, and shaking his hand
at him, he told bim he was "a d 1
scoundrel." Senator Sanders, retaining
his self command, moved away without
making any reply.
Some Mutnnl Kxplnnations.
Afterwards each took the floor. San
ders explained that the question involved
in his amendment was one iu which his
constituents took a deep interest, and on
reflection he felt bound to insist on a yea
and nay vote upon it, believing the senate
would not dare to put itself on record
against the principle therein enunciated.
He made no allusion to the scene which
bad occurred between Harris and himself.
Harris followed and closed his statement
with the remark which appears above,
admitting t'.mt in his language he had
been 'more vigorous thau he should have
Sanders' Wire Was Present.
Sanders.whose wife was in the ladies gal
lery during the whole scene, left the senate
chamber before the close of Harris re
marks ami therefore made no rejoinder
thereto. The episode wis a very general
topic of discussion and regret among
senators after adjournment, and opinions
were expresred by several of the southern
senators, that Harris, whose fiery tempera
ment was admitted, would apologize to
Sanders after he had cooled down.
lias No Word to Say.
Sanders, when asked what action, if any,
be proposed to take in regard to the occur
rence, said: "I Lave no word to say. Sev
eral gentlemen heard - what was said and
saw what transpired, and no wi.ru of mine
could change the judgment of people as
to i the propriety of my speech. I stand
mute " S inders did not have to knock
Harris down to vindicate his courage, as
that is a quality that he is well known to
possess in abundance.

Washington, July 18. Congress is
rapidly approaching the end of thesession,
and, in the opinion of the house leaders,
this week will possibly witness the closing
scenes. The opinion prevails among the
minority that adjournment will not be
reached before Aug. 1. Both these opin
ions are b i-ed on the idea that only the ap
propriation bills will be considered or
rather that the anti-option bill will not ba
considered bv the senate. If this bill is
taken up it is likely to open up the flood

that may mean in the senate.
Washburn Is Out for a Scalp.
Wasuixgton, July 18. The Chicago
Tribune printed a story to the effect that
Senator Washburn had been dealing on

heavily in the transactions. This has
brought from Washington a letter to The
Tribune in which he denies the story and
says he never had a transaction on the
board of trade in his life. He adds: "You
will withdraw these statements, ami as

Indiana's Female Institution Set in
Flames by Incendiaries.
Ixpiaxapolis, July 18. The female re
formatory of Indiana, located in this city,
narrowly escaped destruction by fire
last night. The fire was of incendiary
origin, was well planned, and the fact that
the attempt to destroy the institution was
not successful was owing to the efficiency
of the fire department. The fire was
started at 8 o'clock in three different rosins
at the same time. Bed clothing was piled
upon the floor aud ignited. Tne loss was
trilling, but an hour later another attempt
was made, which was batll-'d by a squad
of police who had been left on guard.
Several inmates escaped.

BUENED HIS BODY.
Cremation as Practiced by the
CORPSE OF A SUICIDE INCINERATED
The Ceremony Conducted on the Hindoo
Plan A Pile of Wooii Eighteen Feet
High the Crematory, a Lonely Spot In
Indiana the Scene and the Dead of
ight the Occasion Weird and
"Creepy" Details The Funeral Hymn
"Hurrah for the Next Who Dies."
Chicago, July 18. At a lonely spot in
Indiana, on the shore of Lake Michigan,
the body of Morris Allen Collins was in
cinerated ou a funeral pyre Saturday night
according to the expressed wishes of the
dead man. The last lines penned by him
previous to his suicide one week ago,
charged the Whitechapel club of Chicago
to buru his body toashes. Placed directly
over a quantity of light wood iu a funeral
pyre twenty feet long, eight feet wide,
and eighteen feet high the body was re
duced to its elements in the course of five
hours, the ashes placed iu an urn, nnd
brought back to Chicago by the members
of the club.
The Scene of the "Ceremony."
The scene of the cremation was at a
point three miles distant from Miller,
Ind., almost inaccessible on account of
bad roads, numerous pools and morasses.
A natural mound served as a rostrum,
and after the torches had been applied on
all sides of the big pyre, speakers aiouut
ed the knoll and addressed the small body
of mourners ou the metaphysical topics
suggested " by Collins' life and tenets.
Collins was a Texas man. Forced to de
pend upon his own abilities from an early
age he became a student of sociology,
eventually becoming a writer of some note
on them, and sURgested by the relations
of capital and labor.
President of a Suicldo Club.
Collins met with many reverses which
imbittered his nature, and made him an
advocate of suicide as au honorable means
of ending mortal woe. Iu Dallas he estab
lished a suk-ide club, of which he was
president to the day of his death, a week
ago. Wheu the Whitechapel club received
Collins' instruction it immediately made
preparations for carrying them out. As
soon as the formalities made necessary !y
law had been observed, the body was taken
from the morgue and prepared for incin
eration. Anil the Club Has a "Chaplain."
The spot in Indiana was chosen to avoid
the annoyance of keepiug away the idly
curious. Little ceremony preceded thefir
iug of the structure. The Whitechaplers
each carrying a lighted pine knot wound
around the pyre three times and then
baited in lines forming a square. The
chaplaiu of the club made a brief invoca
tion as did the chief mourner, after which
the torch was applied.
THE PROCESS OF CREMATION.
Some Realistic Details That Are Weird
The body was placed ou top of the pyre
at 10:50 and in less thau five minutes after
that the flames had snatched off the sheet
as if it were gun cotton and left the rigid
corpse sharp anil black against a back
ground of red. The wind was off shore
and blowing the flames aud smoke toward
the lake. It left the process of destruc
tion plainly visible, while apparently not
interfering with the effect of the heat ou
the body. For a few minutes the imper
fect combustion of gases, or the draft, or
some other cause which the expert medi
cal men there might explain, cushioned
the corpse so that it seemed protected
from the flames.
Started to ISurn with a Flush.
Theu with a lively flash the lire ran
along the flesh and in few seconds the
corpse was burning like pine. The rapid
course of the H.-imes was short. It was
followed by a slow destruction which last
ed for several hours. The right arm,
which had lain outstretched across the
logs, raised slowly until it seemed fixed
by the muscles to wave good -by to the
little group ou the knoll, before which
stood Honore Joseph Jaxon, the dead
man's friend. Then the legs drew up, and
presently the remains, now but a shell of
bone, powdered with the black ash of the
flesh, began to t-lip toward the corner of
thefpyre, which hail been weakened by a
great rush of flames whipped by the
An Impressive Funeral "Hymn,"
The legs first sank with a flurry of coals,
then the frame of the trunk disappeared,
leaving the skull resting ou the pillow of
a big, warm log. The men had just be
gun their closing march, and the refrain,
"Hurrah for the Next Who Dies,"
was floating over the tumbling
beach-comb when the skull roll
ed down among the bed of coals on
which the other fragments crouched. It
was 1:06 a.' m. when the first crash came,
ami nearly 2 o'clock when the skull was
huddled in the bed of coal. The crowd
remained 'silent and awe-strickeu by the
impressive sight. '
GntheriiNr Up the Remains.
At 3:30 the. flames were still playing
about one side -of the pile, but they had
fallen sufficiently at the point to which
the body had slipped to permit the men to
work. The greater part of the ashes
were raked out. They were accom
panied by some solid calxes which
had not been powdered but were
placed with the rest in the urn. A few
fragments of the corpse which had escaped
the strongest heat were left among the
coals, and Mr. Jaxon offered to remain be
side them. The weight of the mass carried
to the club rooms was less than seven
pounds. The urn was placed in the club
