tonitm Discussed in the Senate.
"Washington, Aug. 8. If there is any
solution to the deadlock in the house it is
not in sight. It is true that, acting under
instructions of a resolution passed by the
house yesterday, Speaker Crisp hns sent a
telegram to every absent member an
nouncing that all leaves of abseuce are
revoked, and calling upon them to return
at once to their duties; and that if they
do not obey this call or give a gilt-edged
excuse the sergcant-at-arms has been or
dered to arrest them and bring them
here. In bis telegram Crisp says a
quorum is absolutely necessary to break
the deadlock, but how a quorum can do
that does not appear, ns there has been a
quorum iu the city and in the bouse every
day if they would have voted.
What Cripa Idea May He.
They bave voted a number of times
'when it would not endanger tbe plans of
the filibusters. Perhaps Crifp believes
that if a quorum of Democrats is present
tbe 'World's fair appropriation can be
stricken from the bill. His speech in the
caucus Monday night showed that such
action would meet with his approval.
And that set-ms to be tbe only way such a
quorum could break the deadlock, as the
filibusters wonld only be deprived of one
method of obstruction if a quorum
should vote every time, and that would be
the point of no quorum. They could still
move to adjourn, demand roll-call, etc.,
Three conferences were held yesterday,
during recesses of the house taken for that
purprae, between the fair's friends aud
enemies and each was a failure, because
the enemies of the fair insisted on post
ponement to December, and its friends de
manded a square vote on the motion to
table t he motion to rec" n ;iler the vote
by which the house concurred in the ap
propriation. At the las conference a
committee of five friends and five enemies
of the fair was appointed to see if some
agreement could uot bj arrived at that
would permit congress to a'tj'iurn. It was
a forlorn bojie and the event was what
was exiected. -
The Committee Meet and DISHrees.
For a failure to agree was the Tesult of
the meeting of the committee which took
place yesterday afternoon. It consisted of
the following gentlemen: Ilankhead of
Alalxtma, McMillin of Tennessee, Mo
Creary of Kentucky, Cnmmings of New
York, and t'ulbertson of Texas, who are
opposed to the appropriation, and Durbor
ow of Illinois, Williams of Illinois, Fel
lows of New York, Keilly of Pennsylvania,
and Phively of Indiana, who are in favor
of it. The anti-appropriation meu on the
committee took the initiative in propos
ing schemes looking to an agreement, but
they were met by the ultimatum from the
lair advocates that they were willing only
to accept a proposition for a direct vote.
They were anxious, it was stated, to have
the matter go before the house that it
might be settled immediately.
PROPOSITIONS OF THE FILIBUSTERS.
None of Them Aft-reable to the Friend
of the Appropriation.
The antis made several propositions.but
not one of them was voted on. One of
these was to cnt down the appropriation
one-half or $,500,000 and thi- was vig
orously opposed by the other side, and
even found some opposition on the part
of some of the antis. Another proposi
tion was that a vote te postponed until
the niectiug of congress in December next,
bnt this, too, met even more vigorous op
position from the advocates of the appro
priation. They contended for $5,000,1)00
and not a cent less. A suggestion that a
loan instead of a direct appropriation
be made met with a like fate. Similar
treatment befell an effort to reach an agree
ment providing that ull the World's fair
items be eliminated from the sundry civil
bill, incorporated in a separate measure
ami voted on first by the house, and if
passed sent to the senate.
Their Slncle Itemand I for a Tot.
The fair people objected to this on the
rronnd that the senate naa already ex
pressed itself on the appropriation and
such a bill would extend the session to an
undesirable extent. Other propositions
also failed of agreement, and the commit
tee in,' their . desperation aajournea until
this morning. The evident anxiety of the
"World's fair advocates to bring the appro
nrintion immediately to a direct vote is
nrnnf of their belief in their expressed
assurance that the proposition has a clear
majority in the house. . They contend that
thev are willing to have this vote at any
im. and expressed a determination to
nmvmt an ad jourment unless they have
such an opportunity of ascertaining how
u .n...ornrlH on the matter.' '
.Crin the Revpanaible Man- .'
Th- am inclined to hold Speaker Crisp
responsible ior tbe present condition of
.fT.ir. and a strong effort is now being
made to induce him .to have the commit
tee on rules bring IB a special oreer pru--iHoo-
for a. direct vote. This special order,
they contend.would .be Just.fied toy the
evident desire of, a majority of members
-nt- tar the measure, anu.sney cita as
orecedent Crisp's own action In bringing
in a rule .for vote on the free coinage
bill because a majority of his own party
expressed sucii a tit-s.re.
Only Two Vms .f Settlement.
Aide parliamentarians in the house
ogree that the deadlock can only be broken
in one of tivo ways: First, by a special
order providing for a direct vote; and
second, by uLa jimous consent on any
proposition acceptable to all parties con
cerned. The unanimous consent idea is
looked upou as vi-ionary, and so the key
to the situation is left in the hands of the
speaker. It is agreed on all sides that on
his decision depends the prolongation or
peedy euding of the session.
The Speaker Must Act.
With the appropriation advocates in the
majority and seemingly solidly in favor of
keeping co:;fcres from adjourning until '
s.t: e tiisposition is tnaile o: ti e appropria
te' ' elnuse, anil the amis quite as dt-ter-li
inil topiiu-ue their tilibtistering tactics
to .u as the appropriation is kept before
the house, there is practically no prospect
for a conclusion of the session. The failure
of the committee of ten to come to any
conclusion places the speaker in a position
where he must act, and it is contended
that his only action can be a special order
for a direct vote, lie must soon take some
A GUARDIAN FOR PALMER.
Hawley Say the Illinois Statesman
Washington, Aug. S. While the senate
yesterday was discussing the resolution
for an investigation of the Pinkerton sys
tem Palmer made a speech in which he
said, referring to the Pinkertons: "They
ought to be hounded down by such means
as are employed against enemies of man
kind. You can see from this, Mr. Presi
dent, that I would not be a very impartial
judge where they are concerned." Later
Hawley got the floor and referred to the
speech made by Palmer some time ago in
which he took socialist ic ground. Hawley
condemned the senator's remarks.
An Assertion as to Carnegie.
Palmer replied to Hawley, and in ex
plaining his socialistic speech said that all
our laws for half a century had tended to
the organisation of capital, and the effect
of this orgenization had been that labor
had become feeble for. want of organiza
tion. He believed that public policy de
manded that the organization of labor
should be encouraged as we have hereto
fore encouraged the organization of capi
tal. His reasoniug with regard to the
Homestead case had been this: That this
Carnegie organization, which controlled
$i5,000,000 of capital, had actually, so far
as its power reached, forbidden the organ
ization of labor.
A Correction from Hawley.
Hawley, interrupting, said he could
permit the ordinary mistakes of the sena
tor from Illinois (and they were very nu
merous) to pass unnoticed, but this cor
poration had never been so idiotic as to
attempt to prevent the organization of la
bor. All they insisted npoa was the right
of saying whom they should employ. Pal
mer said the interruption might have
been characterized bva better manuer.bnt
he was glad he bad so friendly a guar
Hawley You need one.
Palmer The senator says I need aguar-
dian. I got so far along without one, hut
if 1 should need one iu the future I will
know where to apply.
B-L-U-D ON THE MOCN.
Itoatner and Watson Indulge in Some
"Washington, Aug. 8. There was a
breezy time during the hearing yesterday
of the 'Watsou charges. Watson and lioat
ner grew hot and intimated mutually that
each was straying from the truth. Theu
Boatner told Watson not to "disturb the
committee," an imputation that Watson
denied and Boatner reasserted. "I want
you to understand, " finally said Boatner,
"that 1 am perfectly responsioie. i win
not avoid you." "Aud I want you to un
derstand that I nm responsible. I am not
avoiding you," said Watson.
Will It Ite Pistols and Coffee?
It is said that both gentlemen have rec
ords as fighters' and that both have
winged their men. Personal trouble is
feared between them. They both come
from a part of the country where a per
sonal difficulty is likely to lead to "gn
play," and it, is stated that Watsou habit
ually goes armed. Judge Cobb was on the
stand yesterday nnd denied that he was in
the least under the influence of liquor.
Altogether Watson doesn't seem to have
made out a case either as lo his sweeping
chnrge or as to the specific one in Cobb's
case. The committee will doubtless re
port against him.
Proceeding in Congress.
Washington, Aug. 8. In the absence
of auy other business the senate yesterday
discussed the Homestead affair with some
warmth and personality, Hawley in the
course of the debate taking occasion to
remark that Palmer needed a guardiau.
At the close of the discussion a much
modi find resolution of investigation was
adoDled providing for a special cotuuiittes
of seven to investigate the "employment of
armed bodies of meu for private purposes
in connection with differences between
workmen and employers."
The 'situation in the house has
not changed. All absentees will , be
notified to return, - and all leaves
of absence are to be revoked. If any ab
neut members shall fail to return or notify
the speaker that they are en route to the
capital within the ensuing two days the
sergeant-at-arms is to enforce their at
tendance. Nothing was done except to
confer and filibuster yesieruay.

Speaks at Beatrice, Neb..
Montgomery:, Ala., Aug. 3. Returns
from Monday's election received up to a
late hour Monday night were from cities
and towns, aud iudicated a very large
majority for Governor Jones and the state
ticket. The cities aud towns were all un
derstood to lie for Jones, and the only
surprise felt was the rather unexpected
large majorities in many of them for the
organized Democracy. The returns, how
ever, received throughout yesterday and
up to a late hour last night have given
hope to Kolband his ticket and he is now
claiming his election.
Kolb Claims the Legislature.
Unofficial report have been received
from a total of nineteen counties, of which
Kolb has carried fourteen and Jones five.
Kolb claims that he will have a majority
of the legislature on joint ballot, but the
Jones men deny this, as half of the senate
holds over, and do not believe it possible
for him to capture more than thirty or
forty at the highest of the 100 members of
Cutting Down the Jane Majority.
Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 3. Complete
and incomplete returns received from 49
out of fiC counties in the state indicate a
majority ranging from 15,000and 20,000 for
Gov. Jones and the regular Democratic
state ticket. Keturns show that Kolb
polled a much heavier vote than was at
first supposed. A large part of the county
precincts went solid for him. Kolb's lieu
tenants concede Jones election by 10,000.
The legislature is v-ry close. This result
is said to be due to a scheme of the Kolb
ites to capture the legislature and by some
means unseat Jones, The black belt sec
tion, where so many negroes reside, wei.t
overwhelmingly for Jones.
M'KINLEY IN NEBRASKA.
The Covernor Talks Protection at the
Beatrice, Xeb., Aug. 3. One of the
largest audiences ever gathered in Ne
braska listened at the Beatrice Chautau
qua grounds yesterday to Governor Mc
Kinley. Uniformed Republican clubs
from southeastern Nebraska and north
eastern Kansas were out in force, and in
the parade that escorted Governor McKin
ley from the hotel to the Chautauqua
grounds were nearly 2,000 members of
marching clubs. The speech was heartily
applauded at all points. When the gov
ernor appeared on the platform the ap
plause was tremendous and lasted fifteen
Protection and the Parmer.
After quoting Jefferson and other
"fathers" in support of the constitutional
ity of protection and quoting from the
senate report on the effect of the McKin
ley bill on prices the governor said that
protection was of as much benefit to the
farmer as to any other class. It made a
home demand for his products and home
consumers wre better than foreign con
sumers because they were nearer the field
of production. Millions of dollars of farm
products were sold in our industrial cen
ters which would not be raised at all but
for the demand they made.
