Lively Debute In the House Over the
Matter July's Financial Exhibit The
Watson Charges Capital City Notes.
Washiugtox, Aug. 2. A Democratic
caucus was held in the house last night to
endeavor to effect an agreement by which
the present deadlock on the World's fair
appropriation clause in the sundry civil
bill could be brokeu and a speedy adjourn
ment be brought about. There were about
100 members present with Representative
Ilolman in the chair. A resolution was
offered by Mutchler of Pennsylvania,
which in effect was that there should be
a vote on a separate World's fair bill,
making an appropriation of $5,000,000 in
aid of the World's fair.on the first Wednes
day in December next, after six hours de
bate, and that only three amendments
thereto shall be in order. The tesolution
further provided that the Dockery com
mittee should be continued during the
recess with power to visit Chicago, inves
tigate the financial condition of the fair,
and report at the opening of the next ses
sion of congress as to the necessity for
Keilly'a Substitute Keaten.
Keilly of Pennsylvania offered a sub
stitute, in substance that the sense of the
caucus is that the house proceed to vote
on the pending motion, namely, to lay on
the table the motion to reconsider the vote
by which the house concurred in the
senate amendments without the interposi
tion of any further dilatory motions. This
substitute "was debated pro. and con.
Reilly, Fellows, Buslmell, Babbit, O'Xeill
and others advocating it. A vote on the
resolution resulted in its defeat by a vote
of 61 to is'J.
Crisp Declares Himself.
Mutchler opened the debate in favor of
his resolution, and was followed in advo
cacy of it by McCreary of Keutucky in a
lengthy speech. Crisp summed up the situ
ation in u concise manner and favored the
Mutchler resolution. He thought the
matter iu controversy should go overuut.il
December He cited as a parallel case the
filibustering on the direct lax bill and the
manner in which it was disposed of. He
also dwelt upon the way the sundry civil
bill had been amended by inserting the ap
propriation clause which he said was an
act unprecedented in the history of con
gress. Hank head also spoke ngain--t the
appropriation. A vote upon the Mutchler
resolution resulted iu its favor by a vote of
m to 81.
Will Itolt the Caucus Action.
McGann of Illinois said after the caucus
had adjourned that the supporters of the
"World's fair appropriation would continue
to press their cause until congress expired
by limitation of law, on March 4 next.
They would contiuue to insist on carrying
out the will of the majority. Durborow
agreed with the sentiments expressed by
his colleague. If this programme be car
ried out the caucus will have accomplished
FILIBUSTERS GROW AGGRESSIVE.
Ilolman and Others Charge World's Fair
People with ISulltlor.ttiir.
There seemed yesterday to le an under
standing among the opponents of the
World's fair appropriation that they were
to open a hot lire on the friends thereof
and assume the aggressive. At any rate,
as soou as business began, Ilolman got the
floor and again presented his resolution to
extend last year's appropriations. He said
the house was confronted with a peculiar
situation. The gentleman from Illinois
(Hopkins) had stopped the wheels of the
government by objecting to the considera
tion of the resolution on Saturday last.
Never before iu the history of the govern
ment had such a state of affairs existed.
He wanted to bulldoze the house, and so
Stya It Was Contrary to Rule.
This measure was placed in an appro
priation bill contrary to the rules of both
houses of congress. The Centennial ex
hibition appropriation was made by the
passage of a separate bill. He referred
to the action taken itp to the motion to
reconsider the vote concurring in the ap
propriation, and said the house had a right
to reconsider its own action, but did not
go into the question as to who was pre
venting the House voting on reconsidera
tion. McCreary of Kentucky said that the
fault lay with the World's fair advocates.
They wanted the bill to fail if they did
not get this money. The people of the
country were to Le robbed for the World's
New York lias a Whack.
Heed made a short speech iu reply to
Hoi num. Cunmings, of Xew York, con
tinued the fight ugainst the fair. Hesaid:
"The wheels of the government Were
stopped by the objection of the Republican
member from l.linoi Hopkins The
provisions of the last sundry civil bill have
been extended once. Why did not the
gentleman object to it thenf He objects
to it now because he has his Chicago
croupier in the public treasury and wants
to rake $5,000,000 from it. The object is
to force this house to allow this money to
be taken under pressure. And the gentle
man from Maine Heed is the lieuteuant
of the gentlemau from Illinois. With the
ferocity of a Marat we have seen him kick
the bones of a dead colleague from his
path for the purpose of trying to secure
I vtiil not say steal this appropriation.
Applause on the Democratic side. And
these are the men that have the impudence
to turn to a party which in this house has
given S3 majority agamst this looting of
the treasury and charge it with blocking
the wheels of the government."
Heed's Kepjy to Holtnaa'a Plaint.
McMillia spoke in the same strain as
Cummings and Hopkins on the other side,
each declaring that the "other fellow" was
respossible for the condition of affairs re
sulting in tbo stoppage of th wheels of
government: and then the resolution ex
tending the appropriation passed. The
best speech on the Republican side was
niade by Reed, who replied to Ilolman.
He said: "The gentleman from Indiana,
Ilolman has today afforded us an ex
ample of that unspeakable courage which
enables him to face unflinchingly a situa
tion of this kind. With a Democratic
majority of more than 140, of which he is
the titular leader, the house or representa
tives h'is Hopped the business of this
government, and now he is endeavoring to
charge it upon somebody else. Laughter.
He himself has le i, if not overtly, covert
ly, this rebellion against this good govern
ment. I If as the Sanction of the Senate.
i "He has deliberately blocked the wheels
, f public business, a- d now he charges it
I Upon ot heis because they will not permit
him to continue this bouse in session
when its members are leaving by the invi
i tation of himself and friends, so that the
1 difficulty of getting a quorum under the
I wicked rules of this house will prevent
the legislation of the country taking
. place. Now, let us see what that legisla
tion is. It is legislation which has not
only received the sanction of the senate of
1 the United States, but so far as the point
complained of is concerned, it has received
4 its unanimous sanction; for if it be true,
Las the gentleman from Indiana says, that
I this provision is in the bill against the
, rules of the senate, it must be there be
, cause every Democratic senator ou the
! floor consented to the transaction.
A Had One on Jfolnian.
I "It therefore comes here, not ouly with
j the sanction of the senate, but with the
! sanction of every Democrat in it. Further
j than that, it has the sanction of a Demo
I cratic house of representatives with 140
J majority a Democratic house of repre
sentatives in which that party has a ma
1 jority of 3 to 1 and there is nothing urged
against it except the miserable technicality
that some of these gentlemen think it ought
not to be iu an appropriation bilL And
j the gentleman from Indiana was the leader
j in forcing the admission intoappropriation
j bills of items which repealed existing legis
lation. Aud yet he has the courage to
j stand up before this house and before the
j country and charge his own action toother
' men charge iu a house with 140 Demo
i cratic majority the stopping of the public
business to a membt-r of the minority.
Compliments His Courage.
"I do not wonder he has had r. long ca
reer. Courage like that would carry a
man through Indiana to fire. Laughter
and applause. One hundred an forty
Democratic majority three to one aid
the bill having the sanction of both houses
of every Democrat in the senate and
. of Democrats enough in the house to
1 make a majority here and now. And yet
j the business of the country is to be
j stopped and somebody else charged with
j the ciime." Applause on the Repub
j licau side.
i A GOOD FINANCIAL SHOWING.

The Rechabites Will Celebrate.
Washington, Aug. 2. The semi-centennial
of the organization of the 'Rechabites,"
a temperance society, is being celebrated
by the high tent in national convention in
this city. Aug. 2, 1S42, the first tent of
Rechabites was organized in this country,
the place being Xcw York city. It being
free from politics, and based on the doc
trine of persuasion, the doctrine grew rap
idly in all the New Kngland states. It
prospered until lSfjO, when the war spirit
stole In among the Rechabites, and the
differences of opinion came near burying
the institution. After the war was over a
few faithful followers called the "high
tent" together again, and it is again
enjoying a fair degree of prosperity.
Washington. Aug. 2. The senate did
practically nothing yesterday but wait the
action of the house on the sundry civil
bill. It assented readily to the house
proposition to continue existing appro
priations for four days longer, aud Hawley
aud Hiscock spoke ou the question of the
In the house the resolntiou extending
the appropriations was adopted with only
a short debate, the World's Fair people
not cariug to antagonize it. A resolu
tion was adopted changing the date of the
Chicago Columbian dedication to Oct 2L
Holuian tried to pass a resolution appro
priating $00,000 for southern flood sufferers,
but somebody filibustered and no furthei
business was done.
The Watson Investigation.
Washington, Aug. 2. The situation in
the investigation of Watson's charges of
drunkenness on the floor of the house is
about as follows: A dozen representatives,
correspondents and others testified that
Cobb was drunk when he made his speech
on the Noyes-Rockwell case; twenty-five
or thirty representatives and correspond
ents with Stenographer Devine, who re
ported Cobb's speech, have testified that
he was not drunk, but that his rambling
at the close was owing to the numerous
interruptions. Some of these, however,
admit that he sipped whisky as lie pro
ceeded, but claim that hard work had
physically exhausted him and made a
The Joke is on Weihe.
Washington, Aug. 2. Seifary Foster,
f the treasury department, has written
fetter to William Weihe, president of the
A.A.1 S. W., upon whose recommenda
tion Frank Evans, of Baltimore, was ap
pointed an emigrant inspector, stating
that it had : come to his knowledge that
Evans is an alien. ..- -,
HE ANNOYS THE PRESIDENT.
A Crank Who Should Re Locked Up 1
fore He Slakes Trouble.
Atlantic Citv, N. J., Aug. 2. The
mysterious movements of a crank who
has been annoying President Harrison by
writing letters to hint from this city, are
being watched closely. The eccentric In
dividual heads his letters "Court of St.
Marc." and signs himself "Godhead Clar
ence." He has for several days past been
sending frequent communications to the
president. One read as follows: "Yoti
will have to make n collection of food and
clothing for thp sufferers at Homestead.
By order of Godhead Clarence,"
Letters Iteceived Frequently.
Secretary Hal ford, on being communi
cated with in regard to the letters sent by
the crank, wrot to the editor of a local
paper in Atlantic City the following: "I
have your note of the 22-.1 inst. We are in
receipt of letters frequently from some one
who signs himself "Clarence, but the na
ture of the letters I do not know, as no at
tention is paid lo them here. We under
stand them to be from an irresponsible
person." At the postoffice this man who
calls himself Clarence has given his ad
dress in Atlantic City as 120 South Ten
nessee avenue. Inquiry at that place
failed to reveal anything as to the identity
of the crank. He is not known there, and
nothing is known of his movements.
