Washington, Jnly 2K Uncertainty
brooded over the fate of the World's fair
bill when the house met yesterday, and
no one was willing to hazard a prediction
atoji;t v'iat the outcome would be.
This was taken as an indication that both
Bides were nearly equal in their respective
Strength. Hat the leaders would do no
more than express hope in the resnlt.
Durborow sr.id he. hoped that the appro
priation would be made. If a vote were ob
tained he hojied it would be carried by a
majority of about six a decrease of four
teen in his estimate sinca Saturday. !!
thought liis entire strength would be about
Ktiniitte of an Opponent.
Bankhe.'i 1 hoped the bill would be de
feated by ten and thought his strength
about but neither had made a can-'
vass sufficiently accurate to tell exactly
bow he stood and no one knew what the
filibusters would do. After some delay, J
other business intervening, the great ques-j
tiou of the tiny came up and as there was (
pome time Allowed for debate Caruth of
Kentucky, who had voted nirninst the ap- j
proprintiou last week, took the floor. He
8Hiill.t-li.iil votttl against concurring be- J
fore because of a difference between the
management of the fiirr and organized
labor, but now all such differences had
been settled ami there was no reason
why he should not vote fur it. He hail
not vored to select Chicago, even though

member cried, ;ud of course t hero w. is a

It w Hi tin: h m:l. Some pt-ople seemed to
have coi:t it 'it it-n.il scruples against vot
ing for the appropriation, yet, they had
none itgiiiu-t voting for a pan-Americatt
survey. .fter Caruth had concluded
I'owers f I'.tliftirni i -poke for the appro
priatioti. as did Jlouk of Ohio, also i lop
iins f lliii.ois. The la: ter declared that
there was no man with a ihimblefui of
brains and a grain of honesty in his etm
position who would dor.br that the appro
priation was intended or would be used
for anything but the national good.
teIitliii Opposes tile ratit.
McMiliin of Tennessee, in spite of cries
of 'Votel" "Vole!" got up anil made a
speech in which he declared that the pur
pose of the bill was to take .VKMi,Oi of
the people's sweat from the public treas
ury ami give it to the exposition. Then
be charged tluit it would be unjust to coin
money for t he cxposit ion when the house
bad refused to coin money to loan farmers
on their crops. He ended by declaring
that there was no danger of the fair being
a failure even if the niouey was not ap
propriated. Slaughtered the Other Amendment.
Molniun then moved that the house non
concur in the senate amendment increas
ing the appropriation for the govern
ment's exhibit from $314,000 to $500,000.
Thin u'us eMrrieil ns tvpl-M motions tn non

appropriation for the World's Columbian
commission from $tl5,500 to MU, 000; in-1
creasing the item for the lmard of lady!
managers from :.000 to $138,000; Riving
the director general $10,000 for contingent I
expenses, ami providing lor two meetings
of the commission.
THEN CAME THE TUG OF WAR.
A Liberal Member Mho Wanted to Give
the Fair Five Dollars.
Then came the great bone of contention
the $5,000,000 appropriation. The oppo
nents had had a walk-away thus far and
the perspiration rolled down Durborow's
face in streams. The clerk read the $5,
000,000 appropriation clause and when he
bad finished Hnlman asked for the read
ing of IJankhead's motion to strike out
the word "million" and demanded the
pievious question on it and on his own
motion to insist in non-concurring in the
entire section. By a viva 'oce vote the
previous question was ordered. Tbeu
Bankhead's motion was read and the
Didn't Want to Go On Record.
Hopkins insisted on the yeas and nays.
The opponents yelled "Xol" at the tops of
their lungs aud kept up calling "no" until
the speaker's collar wilted from his exer
tions in pounding for order. For five
minutes he pounded and then from sheer
exhaustion the opponents submitted, and
those in the house who favored a yea and
nay vote were called upon to stand.
Nearly half the members sprang up and
the speaker, without waiting to count
them, announced that enough had arisen,
and the yeas and nays were ordered.
Was Considered a Teat Vote.
This was considered a test Vote and was
watched closely. Hut there were com
paratively few who had the nerve to vote
for sifdi a proposition. It was defeated
141 to 71 the yeas being: Alexander,
Andrews, Bailey, Bankhead, Beeman,
Bentley, Blauchard, Blount, Branch,

To Concur or to Non-Concur.
Bingham then moved to concur in the
section appropriating $5,000,000. A motion
to concur having precedence over amotion
to nonconcur Holmau had to step aside.
Bingham called for ttie yeas ami nays,
and they were ordered, but before the
clerk bean, Holuinu moved to reconsider
the vote by which the yea and nays were
ordered. He was defeated on a viva voce
vote and went to the extent of demanding
tilers, bnt later withdrew his demand,
and a square vote on the question was
reached. As the vote neared its close it
became evident that the house would con
cur and Holman changed his vote so is to
lie able to move a reconsideration. He
had voted no, of course.
CHICAGO WINS THE DAY'S FIGHT.
A Majority of Twelve for the Appropria
tion, but the Kattle Still On.
The vote was 117 to 105 in favor of con
currence, but while the friends of the fair
were congratulating themselves Holman
moved a reconsideration. While that mo
tion was pending Bingham moved to lay
it on the table, but before the motion
could be put Outhwaite moved an ad
journment and then amended it by mov
ing that when an adjournment was taken
it be to meet on Friday, whereupon Bailey
moved to amend so that the house upon
adjourning should do so to meet on Sat
urday. Here the filibusters rest ed on their
oars, and a viva voce vote was taken on
Obtniued Another Holt full.
The amendment was defeated, where
upon he called fur a division. Again it
was defeated and then he called lor the
yeas and nays. Knough filibusters rose
to secure them ami the long tail liegan.
Stiil once more was the motion defeated
143 to 3 'io quorum Voting. A call of
the house was ordered, but 1'racey moved
to adjourn defeated. Tellers were de
manded for the call of the. house and it
fchowed '-S. members present.
All Absentees Called In.
Bingham then uli'ered a resolution,
which was adopted, revoking all leaves of
absence except for personal or family ill
ness . and instructing i he sergeant-at-arnis
to send for all absentees. Filibustering
then ceased and the house adjourned until
today, leaving t he fair nppropriat ion still
subject to Hobnail's motion for a recon
sideration. Durborow has telegraphed
all absent friends of the fair to be on hand
today, and if filibustering continues there
is no telling how long final action may be
delayed, as, unless the rules committee
could be induced to adopt an order for a
vote, tin- rnles admit of any amount of

A Facetioui. liurglttr Operates at Indian
apolis. Indianapolis, July i. Mrs. D. II.
Bennett, of Fletcher avenue, was awak
ened yesterday by footsteps in her
room and, raising herself in bed, saw a
man with a bull's-eye lantern leisurely
examining articles of clothing and appro
priating va'diables. She ordered hi til
away, but the burglar calmly replied that
he had not concluded his investigations
and could not possibly leave as
long as there was a chance of
finding ati-thing valuable. He re
minded her that he did not call oftvn,
and hoped she would not consider him
rude if he remained longer thnu wasagree
able to her, Mrs. Bennett then began to
scream at the top of her voice, but the
burglar paid no attention to her till sev
eral of the neighbors hail responded to her
calls for help and had entered the house.
He then apologized for the trouble he had
occasioned her, hojM-d she would not suffer
from the heat, and left, avoiding the
neighbors as he passed out.

Citt of Mexico, July fcS. The Daily
Anglo-Americ n says that James Doerns
by Walton, of Brockenhurst, England, and
Henry Ad ams, of Bellows Falls, N. H.,
met terrible deaths Monday while attempt
ing to reach the highest crater of Vol
cano de Colima, Both men were en
gaged in the mining business, and after
some bantering decided to settle the ques
tion which are the braver, Englishmen
or Americans, the test being the ascent of
the volcano. They sttrted after many dif
ficulties and encountered an obstacle.
Died with their i'laga Abreast.
The guides say that with their respective
flags tliey reached a shelving rock where
a volu me of ashes shot from the crater
hundreds of feet into air. Walton arid
Adams, after the ashes had fallen, were
seen by the guides grasping bands, each
with flags flying defiance. This was the
last ever seen of the brave adventurers, for
the next infant a solid volume of lava
was vomited and reaching a height of
thousands of feet, descended concentrical
ly in a storm of fire. Walton and Adams
perished in the descending tire. The
guides escaped and reached Louilla and
told the story of the ascent ami death.

yesterday a stranger entered and engaged
in conversation with the cashier's wife, w ho
was in charge of the bank during the tem
porary absence of her husband. After
making some inquiries in regard to real
estate the stranger walked to an adjacent
desk and began writing. Just then an
other strang-r entered the bank, and with
drawn revolver called out: "Hands up."

He then compelled the frightened
woman to hand out all the money in the
safe. After securing the money, which
amounted to 10,.Vi0, the men left the bank
and mounting their horses quickly rode
away. It was some minutes before the
cashier's wife regained her presence of
mind sufficiently to give the alarm, and
by t he time the news of the robtn-ry was
made public the roblwrs had a good start.
It is believed the robbery was committed
by the Dalton brothers.
