Took t"p the Anti-Option BUI.
The anti-option bill w.is then taken up
and Palmer of Illinois addressed the sen
ate, explaining and defending his oji ctions
to the bill. He said that when be was
canvassing the state of Illinois its a candi
date for the senate he wjia frequently asked
whether be would vote for suvh a bill, said
he had said "No." The clauses ncrainst
purchases of options were, he said, less
satisfactory to his mind thnn the statute
of Illinois on liiat subject. Dealings ia op
tions were prohibited by the laws of Illi
nois and were punished by nclequate fines
and penalties. He had, therefore, said to
those who asked him that there Kins a

say that this bill, if it become a law. will
ever bring one dollar into the treasury. It
is a mere bill of pains and penalties.
Peffer Has congress the constitutional
power to regulate the business of dealing
in options in the several states ?
Palmer Not at alL I deny the power of
congreRB either to regulate or prohibit it.
That is a matter of purely state concern.
Palmer yicled, without concluding his
speech, to a motion for adjournment.
DEVELOPED A DISAGREEMENT.
The Homestead Committee Has a Tarietr
Washington, Dec. frl. A meeting yester
day of the sub-committee of the house
committee on judiciary charged with investi
gating the alleged illegal use of Pinkerton
men at Homes tod was productive in know
ing that no two members agreed as to the
character of the report to be made to the
fall committee. It will be remembered
that Oates of Alabama, chairman of the
snb-eommitte, prepared a report on- the
subject soon after the committee came
from Pittaburg, where it had examined
witnesses in reference to the Homestead
tragedy and the employment of Pinkerton
men in supprewdng labor troubles.
Tried te Effect a Com proa fee.
The sub-committee refused to adopt this
report, and the matter remained In statu
quo daring the fonr months' recess of con
gress. The meeting yesterday was called
for the purpose of effecting some compro
mise in the matter. There was a general
exchange of opinion, with the result that
the members of the sub-committee came to
the conclusion that they coo Id not agree.

No Immediate Danger of Death The
Patient Sleeps Sonndly.
Washington, Dec 21. Mr. Blaine is
resting quietly. He had, daring the great
er portion of last evening, been in profound
st limber, iu fact so profound that it was
with great difficulty he could be awakened
by his attendants to receive the usual nour
ishment. His physician, who called at
midnight, stood at his bedside upwards of
a half hour for the purpose of conversing
with him, but as he showed no signs of
awakening he left the house.
Not in a State of Coma.
In reply to the questions of the reporters
he said: "The fact that Mr. Blaino tleeps so
soundly is not evidence that he is in a state
of coma; on the contrary, it shows that he
is enjoying a natural rest, aided in a meas
ure, of course, by the usual soothing opi
ates. He has spent a remarkably good day
and evening and there are no present indi
cations of immediate dancer."'
