unaided, will be able to filibuster for at
least two weeks, and longer if necessary.
It may be that my colleagues will fall
away from me and my opponents declare
that then I will yield. I may. I have
never been in that situation; but I do not
believe I shall give way. The more diffi
culties 1 encounter the more determined I
usually become. I acknowledge that fili-
bustering is not a very laudable method
of WMEiart; but I honestly cannot see how
a government like ours can appropriate
money for the entertainment of persons
who can afford to pay for the entertain

supply the poor in time of distress with
bread. I therefore shall filibuster against
' J j ; The Situation as to the Hill.
As the situation was at the opening of
yesterday's session of the house the pend
ing motion was to lay on the table Hoi
man's! btodou to reconsider the Vote con
curring in the 5,000,000 appropriation. It
will require 1C7 votes to pass it when the
filibusters' ranks are depleted, as, if only
one ftlibLster remains, be will raise the
point of no quorum. It is within the
power of the speaker to shut off all filibus
tering by bringing in a closuie rule, but
be will do that ouly on a petition of a
majority of the house Democrats, and
Duborow and his advisors regard such a
petition as altogether too difficult a task.
McMillln Opens the Fight.
McMi'.liu of Tennessee began the fight
by bringing in a resolution from the ways
and means committee to adjourn for the
summer recess, on Saturday, July 80, at 2
p. ill. ' Cummings moved to amend the
resolution to (eud Aug. 1, at 12 o'clock.
Outhwaite observed that as it might take
j. little time to dispose of the $.,000,00)
grab," he favored Cummiiigs' aim-uduient.
Hatch said he hoied that no lime would
be fixed for adjournment at present, as he
desired the anti-option bill to have a
chance. ilo suid he should oppose the
resolution. A rising vote defeated the
motion, and not enough called for the
yea and nays, so they were denied.
Uesulution to Ai'Journ Carried.
There was some more filibustering and
lUcMillin appealed for a vote ou adjourn

resolution, so that if the senate agrees ad
journment is in sight. The World' fair
people tried to defeat the resolution, but
could not muster the votes. The business
then returned to the Binuham motion to
lay Holmau's motion to reconsider on th
table. ' Outhwaite promtitly moved to
adjourn, pending which he moved that

When the order came to shut the doors
on the call of the bouse Outhwaite asked
that the doors be left open on account of

testing; on the ground that if the doors
were left open the filibusterers would not
be pt-.Disbed by the beat. But the doors
were, left open and the call ended with 211
members present. Then the yeas and nays

Overtnres for a Compromise.
It is impossible to predict the length of
the deadlock. The opponents of the ap
propriation have made overtures of a com
promise. One proposition is that if a loan
will he accepted it will 1m; voted speedily
and t lie house can then adjourn; another
is to I lie effect that if the advocates of the
appropriation will yield a direct vote on it
can be secured on the second Tuesday in
Deceiulier. Those in favor of the appro
priation naturally refuse any offer of a
compromise aud believe they have the
tuv.tle won. It now appears to be simply
question of physical endurance.
ANTI-OPTION IN THE SENATE.

Washington", July 2. The action on
the anti-option bill was the only feature
of the senate session yesterdav. When the
bill came tip as unfinished business an
appeal was made to Washburn to let it
go over to next December, but he refused
and moved to lay on the table Wolcott's
pending motion to recommit the bill, de
manding the yeas and nays on his motion.

Washburn said that this bill had been
debated for two weeks; it had been de
layed for three weeks in the committee on
Judiciary, and the people of this country
were looking to see it passed at this ses
sion. The last wheat crop had been
handled at a loss of from 5,(MH),0(K) to $6,

this bill was to go over till next session the
next crop must go under the same blight

consent for a vote on the bill today, but
White of Ijouisiana objected.
The Adjournment Resolution.
While the debate was proceeding the
house adjournment resolution came over
and was laid lefore the senate. Allison
said that the only thing" in the way of
adjournment wa-i the sundry civil bill, 1 ut
until that was passed he thought it un
wise to take action looking to adjourn
ment. He at first said he would not nsk
that the resolution be referred to com

nation and asked that it be referred to the
appropriations committee, which was
done. The rest of the session was devoted
to the anti-option bill.

Washington, July 2t. Notwithstand
ing the intense heat and the ascertained de
patrure for the summer of nearly forty
senators, which leftbarelya votingqnorum
on hand, I tie senate yesterday declined to
take any decided action either on the anti
option bill or the house resolution to a I
journ on Saturday next. The motion to
lay the anti-option bill aside till Decem
ber was lost by the unexpectedly large
vote of 13 to 32. Considerable miscellane
ous legislation by unanimous consent was
accomplished, including the passage of an
eight-hour labor law to apply to nil con
tracts on government works, which now
goes to the president for approval.
The proceedings in the house were in
tensely stnpiil and filibustering motions
on the World's fair appropriation pre

are for adjournment and a call of the

Indianapolis, July 29. The body of
Governor Whitcomb was removed from
the old Greenland cemetery Wednesday to
Crown hiil, the work being superintended
by Secretary of State Matthews, whose
wife is a daughter of the deceased execu
tive. The mentallic case which contained
the remains was in an excellent state of
preservation, considering the fact that it
had been under ground more than forty
years, and the name on the date was still
legible. Soon after being exhumed the
casket was opened and the remains were
found to be in a state of almost prefect
preservation. Thoe who had known the
governor during life pronounced the
features remarkable lifelike, the only
change noticeable being a sunken condi
tion of the eyes and a slight discoloration
of the flesh.

apportionment acts of 1SH aud 1SS5 to be

of State Baker to give notices of election
in both cases under the acts of 1SS1, unless
before the time for' giving such notice
expires the governor shall call a special
session of the legislature for the purpose
of having new acts passed. Both opinions
were unanimous. Governor Winans says
he has not determined whether he will
call a special election.

New Yokk, July 29. Miss Dolliver, sis

Third avenue, a few days ago. having ex

ration of sight, after a total blindness
which had affected one of her eyes for
nearly a year. It is said that only one
similar instance is recorded in medical
annals, and that was the case of Governor
Lucius Hobiusou, of this state, who was
affected in the same way and was success

Miss Dolliver about a year ago was open

Floated the Retina Rack.
She was treated by local oculists and it
was supposed she had entirely recovered.
Some time afterward she found that her
left eye was wholly bereft of sight. After
treatment by oculists in Washington
without success she was brought to this
city, where she was examined by special
ists, and it was found that a rupture and
subsequent detachment of the retina of
the eye had taken place. Miss Di lliver
wus kept in a recumbent position iD a
dark room for ten weeks, and finally the
retina floated back and once more attached
itself to tiie choroid. While Miss Dolli

Indianapolis, July 29. The people of
Star City, a village of 500 Inhabitants on
the Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Chicago and
St. Louis railway.are having a terrible ex
perience with a gang of Italians who are
employed by the Indiana Gas company in
layiag the pipe line from the gas fields to
Chicago. Nearly 1,000 men are employed
by the company, and as many of then
have their families the camp contains
nearly 2,000 people. They bave occasioned
a great deal of trouble to the farmers
along the line by robbing hen roosts and
dairies, and several arrests have been
made within the past month and the dep
redators lightly fined.
They Run Things at Star City.
On Monday a number of the men quit
work and went to Star City in a body and
began drinking. They soon became bois
terous and quarrelsome and frequent fights
among themselves occurred, but the au
thorities were powerless to maintain the
peace and the town was practically aban
doned to the brawlers, who soon turned
their attention to the inhabitants and
cleared the streets, assaulting fvery one,
whether man, woman or child, who ap
peared. Stones and sticks were thrown
thiough the windows of houses and
stores and the little community was com
Outrage on a Station Agent.
For half a day fully 230 of the laborers
paraded the streets, defying the authoii
ties.Jbreaking windows and tearing down
fences. The two saloons in the place were
broken into and cleaned out, the despera
does drinking all the liquor they could
find and rolling the barrels out on the
streets and demolishing bottles and
glasses. Going to the railway station they
robbed the office of what money it con
tained and assaulted H. B. Sttuiton, the
agent, in a horrible manner. After beat
ing him nearly to death they dragged him
out upon the street, stripped him of bis
clothing and suspended him by his arms
to a tree.
Fighting Among Themselves.
He was rescued almost an hour later in
an exhausted condition, and may die. His
body is terribly bruised, and his arms
were so swollen that they had nearly burst
when he was rescued. When night fell
the people of the village abandoned their
homes and fled from the place to surround
ing towns, where they could get protec
tion. The rioters are still in control and
and the scenes of Monday aud Tuesday
are being re-enacted, except that the fight
ing is among the rioiers, as the citizens
have not dared to return to their homes.
The Sheriff Vtterly Powerless.
The sheriff has endeavored to restore
order, but the people are in such fear of
the desperadoes that they refuse to obey
his summons and he is powerless. About
one-fourth of the entire camp is engaged
in the rioting and blood has flowed freely,
but it is not known that any
one has been killed. The better
disposed amon the Italians are
at work in the trenches of the gas com -pany,
but refused when solicited by the
sheriff to restrain their drunken com
panions. No demand has yet been made
upon the governor for troops, but It is not
believed that the local authorities will be
able to restore order without the presence
of the military.
