Washington-, Jan. 1:6. Filibusterinir be
gan early in the house yesterday, Kilgore
demanding the reading of the journal in
full, bis object being to prevent considera
tion of the bankruptcy bill. The clerk, as
usual, omitted the reading of reports, bills,
and petitions which come in under the rule
permitting them to be filed with the clerk.
But Kilgore called attention to this omis
sion and demanded that their titles be read.
He was sustained by the speaker, but the
Journal, petitions, and everything else hav
ing been read he objected to approval.
Oates moved approval, and the motion was
carried on the previous question 168 to 0
Wastes More Valuable Time.
Then Lock wood called up the senate
joint resolution directing the secretary of
war to investigate the subject of raft tow
ing on the great lakes. This was another
opportunity for Kilgore to pursue his fili
bustering tactics, and he avaiied himself
of It. After half an hour consumed in
votes by tellers Lockwood's bill was
passed. Hoi man moved that the house co
into committee of the whole for the fur
ther consideration of the sundry civil bill.
Oates, as he did Tuesday, proposed a com
promise. He would not antagonize the mo
tion provide 1 that Thursday and Friday
were assigned to the consideration of the
Kilgore Ran the Houne.
But Kilgore was obstinate and entered
an objection; and Oates immediately start
ed his opposition to the appropriation bill
In favor of the measure In which he was in
charge. Holman's motion was defeated
86 to 102. Kilgore then moved a recess un
til 4 o'clock in the afternoon. This was
defeated 1 to 1(18. Then Kilgore moved
an adjournment, pending which Pierce I
moved that when the house adjourned it '
be to meet on Friday. Ixwt yeas, 1; nays,
211. But Kik'ore came forward with an
other motion that the adjournment should
be until Saturday, which was supplement
ed by Pierce with a motion for a recess
until 5 o'clock. Pierce's motion for a re
cess was voted down yeas, 1; nays, ll
whereupon that gentleman moved to re
consider the vote by which it was rejected
Reed Gets In an ITppprcnt.
Reed, in his dry manner, suggested that
the house should recognize the fact that
public business was in the hands of a mi
nority. Since the house could not transact
public business why not let it adjourn and
permit memliers to go about their own
business. J. D. Taylor made a point of or
der that the proceedings now in progress
were derogatory to the dignity of the bod r,
and therefore not permissible. This kind
of conduct was not in keeping with the
dignity of this house or any other house.
"If you said any other house," suggested
Reed, "it would be right; but drawlingly,
not this house." laughter.
Wild Indian Could Do Itetter.
There was not continued Taylor a
town meeting in Xew England, the home
of the present occupant of the chair
O'Neill of Massachusetts where there
would be permitted such absurd and even
disgraceful proceedings as the house was
witnessing. There were but a few weeks of
the session remaining, and there was a tre
mendous calendar. Yet one man who
lived in Texas could prohibit all business.
The very Indians and here Taylor point
ed to Chief Wolf in the gallery could do
better than this. Laughter.
Wilson of Washington protested against
the gentleman from Ohio insulting his
Wilson's constituents. Laughter.
Pierce's motion was ruled out of order and
on Pierce appealing the ruling was sus
tained 207 to 7.
Oates Give Up the Struggle.
Bland wanted to adjourn; rejected, after
a roll calL Then followed a motion to ad-1
jonrn to Saturday, which was amended so
as simply to adjourn; rejected. Recurring
to the motion to adjourn to Saturday
Oates said it was a question of endurance
and he did not want the house to go ahead
on that issue the same as if it was a prize
fight, ne moved to adjourn. Boutelle
inquired whether the position in which the
house now found itself was not the result '
of deliberate action of the house in divest
ing itself of power to control its own busi
ness. Laughter. Oates' motion was
agreed to and the house adjourned.
, BIG INDIAN IN THE CHAIR.
Be Mistakes I hp Gavel for a l'lpe Typical
WASniXGTON", Jan. 2C. There was an
amusing scene in the chamber of the house
yesterday morning prior to the meeting. A
full-blooded Indiun, ChiefWolf, of the
state of Washi ngton, was seeing the sights
of the capital, and of course his steps
tended towards the large building located
on Capitol hill. Here he was taken in
charge by Fiank Gorman, an employe of
the house, who has a humorous side to his
nature. The gaudily bedecked chief, with
feathers waving over him, and who used a
miniature feather duster as a fan, was es
corted to the chair and took the speaker's

ne occupied it with dignity, although he
was somewhat at sea as to the use of the
gavel. He mistook it for a pipe, and the
end-piece went naturally to his mouth.
He was corrected, and made several at
tempts to call the house to order. A face
tious member a Democract, of course
suggested that this was the first ravage who
had occupied the speaker's chair since the
retirement of Speaker Reed, He was then
escorted to Bourke Cockran's seat, and

"WHO FROW DAT BRICK,"
An Incident in the Capitol that Surprised
Washington, Jan. 26. Representative
Sherman Hear resembles very closely the
chief page in the house of representative, a
young man named Phillips. Tuesday aft
ernoon after the house adjournod Mr. Hoar
went into th-i washroom reserved for mem
bers, where the attendant is a colored man
named Jim Hall. While Hoar was leaning
over one of tie basins Hall came along and
jokingly greeted the person whom he
Apposed was Phillips and at the same
time gave the budding statesman from the
old Bay State a good sound kick in the re
gion of his co ittails.
Imagine the Feeling of nail.
Hcr turned sharply around and for a
moment was very angry. Hall, seeing his
mistake, almost fainted with fright. He
offered the most abject apologies and
pleaded for his official life. Several mem
bers were pre-ient and they helped to turn
the incident into a joke. Hoar finally ac
cepted Hall's apology, with the remark
that he did net know which was the greater
misfortune, Ho be mistaken for Phillips
or to be kickel by a negro."
LOUIS V 'COMAS CONFIRMED.
He Will Be a Judge or the District Su
Washington. Jan. 26. For the first
time this session there was a protracted
straggle in the executive session of the
senate over a presidential nomination, that
of Louis McComas, ex-secretary of the
national Republican committee, to be as
sociate justice of the District supreme
court. The opposition to the nominee in
the senate wa based almost entirely upon
the ground that McComas was not a resi
dent of the District. The Republicans re
plied to the Democrats on this point by re
ferring to the precedents set by Cleveland
in his District and territorial appointments.
The Vote Was Decisive.
When it can e to a vote there was no at
tempt to filibuster, and the result was de
cisive, the vote standing 38 for confirma
tion to 13 for tie opposition. Because of a
failure to adopt the usual resolution noti
fying the presi lent of the confirmation the
result was not formally announced at the
conclusion of the session.
Little or Nothing Done In Congress.
Washisgtov, Jan. 26. Neither the anti
option bill nor tbe Cherokee outlet bill had
tny show of consideration yesterday in the
senate. The time of the session was taken
np in routine matters. The only excep
tions were the introduction of a bill for the
admission of Utah as a state and an
amendment rejwrted from the committee
on naval affair looking to a further in
crease of the navy by one battle ship, two
armored coast defense vessels, ten gun
boats and eight torpedo boats. The rest of
the day's session was occupied in the con
firmation of McComas as a judge of the
District supreme court.
Filibustering against the bankruptcy
bill was inaugurated in the house by Kil
gore and kept up during the whole session,
one man preventing the house from doing

This Is Cruel 01 St. ihiik.
ST. LOCIS. Jan. 26. There is 110 truth in
the statement published in u Chicago pa
per that Miss Salie Conley, who was mar

elopement, is tbe daughter of a St. Louis
millionaire. The young lady's parents are
in extremely moderate circumstances. Her
mother keeps a boardiug-uouse and the
"stern parent" is a pluiu, ordinary, every

Conley's marriage to Jockey Moouey has
not created us much as a ripple on the cur

Restitution of Their Plunder.
'DEs Moines, Jan. . Mr. Mills, the
evangelist, blocked the wheels f trade
yesterday and turned thousands from the
store, the workshop, the office and the
home to the house of God. It was a day of
prayer, a religious feast. Des Moines put
on Sunday clothes and a sanctimonious
air. The blinds of the business houses
were tightly drawn. Even the drug
stores ceased operations and the voices of
the newsboys were hushed. People con
versed in low tones. The vehicles and
street cars seemed to move along with
less noise than usual and altogether it ap
peared that half of the population had died
and the other half was going to the
One Thousand Gathered In.
From morn till late at night a constant
stream of humanity was going and com
ing from the large tabernacle where the
revivalist held his meetings. Never has
Des Moines witnessed such an outpouring. I
Mr. Mills preached to the people and prayed
for them, and last night when he figured
up the day's work he found that 1,000 sin
ners had been brought into the fold, mak
ing the grand total of souls he has saved
since he first commenced operations ten
days ago 18,000. The managersof the meet
ings are more than satisfied with the day's
proceedings. They were surprised with
the unanimity with which the business
men observed the request to close their ;
A System of Prayer Meetings. I
The servici commenced almost with the
break of day. At 8 o'clock neighborhood
prayer meetings were held. The people in
every one or two blocks gathered at a cer
tain house in the neighborhood and sang
and prayed for forty-five minutes. These
services were largely attended and a ma
jority of those present avowed their inten
tion of becoming Christians. From neigh
borhood meetings the people went directly
to the churches. Every church of every
denomination was open yesterday morn
ing at 9 o'clock. In most instances they
were crowded to the doors. I
The Meeting at the Tabernacle. '
As soon as these services were over those
attending went to the big tabern cle, the
hour for meeting being 10 a. m. Here
there was a crush to hear Mills, who ad
dressed 8,000 people, seated, and every
aisle packed. Mr. Mills said that any- ,
thing that detracted the people's interest
from these meetings at such a time as this
is a crime. Me urged all to be what they
pretend to be to their pastors, to do right ,
in business, 'n their home and in their own '
hearts. The afternoon and evening meet
ings were also largely attended. An over
flow meeting was held in a church adjoin
ing the tabernacle. 1

Whether the influence of these meetings
is permanent or not Mr. Mills has done a
great work, and is the talk of the town. It
is a religious craze in the fullest sense of
the word. People seem to have gone mad
over B. Fay Mills. The evangelist is the
sole topic of conversation. On the street,
in the cars, the stores, the clubs, and the
home Mills is the one thing discussed.

One Instance of His Influence.
A book that had been stolen years ago
from the rtnte library was returned Tues
day and placed upon the shelves of that
institution by the person who bad pur
loined it. For many years the book had
rested in the library of some Des Moines
citiien, increasing the number of his vol
umes under false pretenses, as it were,

of small size. The card of the state library
had been torn from the cover and the name
of the institution, written on the thirtieth
page, had been cut out. It was a clear case
Two Words Tell the Story.
But the strangest thing in connection
with the peculiar affair was the writing
that was done on the first fly leaf; two
words told a long story; told of repentance
for a sin, of a wounded consciecne and of a
desire to perform a restitution. These were
the words: "Penitently returned." Which
is but one of the good works of the Mills
meetings. Mills will get about $2,500 for
his two weeks'work.

PAPA CONLEY SUBMITS TO FATE.
The Runaway St. Louis Girl and Her
Hubby Are "All Right."
CHICAGO, Jan. 26. Mr. and Mrs. Conley.
of St. Louis, father and mother of runaway
Sadie, who was "squired" to John Mooney,
the jockey, Tuesday, arrived in, town yes
terday, and at once went to the police sta
tion where their daughter was detained.
The meeting was a tearful one, and Mrs.
Conley fainted at the sight of the runaway
bride; "You know, papa, that yon and
mamma were married very young," sobbed
the girl when upbraided by her parents for
running away, and the shot appeared to

stored. Married Again by a Priest.
Then an adjournment was taken to Cap
tain Shea's office and Mooney was called
into the conference. Mr. Conley indig
nantly refused to discuss the runaway
match with outsiders, claiming that it was
none of the public's business. Mrs. Con
ley's chief regret seemed to be that the
marriage ceremony had been performed by
a. justice of the peace and not by a priest.
Matters were patched up in Captain Shea's
sanctum and early in the afternoon Mr.
and Mrs. Conley witnessed the second mar
riage of their daughter and young Mooney
by a priest of the Roman Catholic church
at Hoyne avenue and Twelfth street.

How to Keep the Feet Wann.
A life insurance company, whose advice
under the circumstances may be taken as
sincere, tells its clients that the golden rule
in cold weather is to keep the extremities
warm. The first and most important rule
for the carrying out of this idea is never to
be tightly shod. Boots or shoes that fit
closely prevent the free circulation of the
blood by pressure, but when, on the con
trary, they do not embrace the foot too
firmly, the space left between the shoe and
tbe stocking has a good supply of warm air.
The second rule is never to sit in damp
shoes. It is often supposed that unless
shoes are positively wet it is unnecessary to
change them while the feet are at rest.
This is a great fallacy, for when the least
dampness is absorbed into the sole in Its
evaporation it absorbs the beat from tbe
foot and thus perspiration is dangerously
checked. This can easily be proved by try
ing the experiment of neglecting the rule.
The feet. will be found cold and damp after
a few minutes, although on taking off the
shoe and examining it it will appear to be
quite dry. Pittsburg Dispatch.
