The bill is the one passed by the house

rious senate amendments thereto. The
first section defines the word "options' to
mean a contract or agreement for theight

witbin a designated period, any of the ar
ticles mentioned in section 3. The second

Incidents of the onaideration of the
' Sundry flvil Bill.
Washington, Feb. 1. While the house
was in committee of the whole on the sun
dry civil bill yesten ay Euloe moved that
in the matter of building the congressional
library building all contracts shall be
awarded for materials to the lowest re
sponsible bidder; and the preference shall
be given to home ever foreign products,
when material of equally good jnaiity ol
borne production Is offered at equal or
lower prices. Cogswell (Ren.) of Massa
chusetts hoped that the amendment would
be adopted because it involved such good
Republican protectioi doctrine. Adopted.
Itlnnd Want 4 Free Trade.
Bland gave notice that he would demand
in the house a yea and nay vote on the
amendment relative to marble for the con
gressional library. It was plain to him
that a Democratic house which was o;v
posed to protection thould not put itself
up in favor of Ten lessee marble and in
opposition to Italiita marble. It was a
protectionist proposi ion. Knloe said thiit
the gentleman from Missouri had misin
terpreted bis amendment. It did not con
tain any provision fo the use of Tennessee
marble nor di.i it cor tain any principle of
protection. Its purpose was to put the
American citizen on an equal footing with
Opposed to Civil Service Reform.
DeArmond ofTerel an amendment to
suspend the civil er ice law for one year.
Ruled out on a point of order, but De Ar
niond got in a spee h asserting that the
civil service policy as practiced in this coun
try was a fraud ana sham. It was not
based upon manhood upon conviction, and
did not require even f tness, for the exami
nations were schoolboy affairs, and did not
show capacity or abi ity for the work per
formed. The civil service should be purged.
There was now practically a life tenure of
office, which was un-American. The civil
service men in the ht use evidently did not
think there was any occasion for a reply to

Washington, Feb. 1. There is good rea
son to believe the attitude of the adminis
tration on the Hawaiian question will be
in favor of a protectorate by the United
States, but not iu favor of annexation un-
i less that should be necessarv. It is now
labor done or to be done on the same; nor j learned here on the bt authority that the
to agreement with farmers or planters to movement had been anticipated by the ad

The Prohibitive Taxes.
The fourth section imposes special taxes,
as follows: Dealers in "options" or "futures"
at $1,000 a year license fee and 5 cents a
pound on cotton, hops, pork, lard, or ba
con, and 20 cents a bushel on grain.
Sections 5 to 14 relate to tbe details for
enforcing the tax, and section 15 provides
that the act shall take effect on the 1st of
A LITTLE MORE TIME FOR TALK.
Two Hours Added to Give the Orators a
The time to have voted on the bill was 9
o'clock p. m., but as soon as the bill was
taken up it was seen that the senators had
not yet expended all their oratory and the
time for voting was extended two hours.
Then Wolcott jumped on the measure as
one that would harm those it was intended
to benefit. He said that the anti-trust
law should be a lesson for senators. It
bad been passed to prevent trade combina
tions, which, said its advocates, raised
prices. ' But the only effect the law had
was large contributions from the trusts to
tbe Democratic national committee and
It had not affected prices. Anti-option '
had not been the issue anywhere in the
recent campaign, and the effect of the law
if passed would only' be to lower prices of
agricultural products. Senator Gray also
opposed the bill.
Voting Iteglns on Amendments.
At last the senators were through the
wind work, and the questions involved
were put to the vote. The first vote was
on the amendment offered by Vilas strik
ing out of the George substitute the words
"options and futures as hereinbefore de
fined are hereby declared to be obstructions
and restraints upon commerce among the
States and with foreign countries and to be
illegal and void." Defeated 50 to 21. The:
next vote was on the George substitute, !
which proposed to declare tiie business of
options and futures an obstacle to and re
straint upon commerce, and to lie illegal
and void. Rejected 51 to 19. The ques
tion was then on the passage of the bill.
Harris Felt Had About It.
Harris made a statement of the reasons
Which controlled his vote. He regarded
the measure as a palpable and admitted
fraud on the .constitution. It would de
stroy borne rule, local self-government
and the last vestige of the reserved rights
of the states. In his opinion the bill was
tbe longest ana most fatal step ever

tralization aud paternalism. For

Vest Snubs Missouri's Solons.
Vest spoke of the action of the house of
representatives of the Missouri legislature
instructing the senators from that state to
vote for the bill and said that he preferred
hia own self respect to personal or political
applause. There was sunshine in other
places besides Washington city and the air
of the prairies was purer than that of the
senate chamber. . He should therefore with
the greatest pleasure vote against the bilL

Dolph for Aggression.
Nothing was said ia the house yesterday
about the matter. In the senate Chand
ler's resolution insi.ructing the president
to negotiate with the commission now
on its way to this city from Honolulu for
annexation of the H awaiian islands, was
referred to the foreign relations
committee by Chandler's own motion.
Dolph gave it as hia opinion that
tbe time had arrived for a well-defined ag
gressive American policy and he proceeded
to read a long statement of the population,
trade and commence of the Hawaiian
islands. Before he bad concluded the res
olution was laid aside without action and
the anti-option bill was taken up. lie
finished later, the balance of his speech
being one he had prepared on the Nicara
gua canal bill.

crowds thronged the galleries of represent

a collision between the leaders of Populists
and Republicans. During the afternoon
the floors of the house were thronged with
big Republicans, who were there to do the
knocking for the Republican side if their
services were needed. One of the first to
enter the hall in the afternoon was Colonel
Dr. R. Anthony, of Leavenworth. He an
nounced that he was there to stay and he
would like to see the Populist who could

That Document From Dunsmore.
It was nearly 4 o'clock in the afternoon
when Speaker Douglass arose in his place
beside Speaker Dunsmore, Populist, to
make an answer to Dunsmore's letter re
ceived Monday night. He produced the
letter from the Popnlist speaker and read
it. Following it an extract:
"I can conceive of no justifiable excuse in
your refusal to recognize the authority of
the executive, the senate and house of
representatives as now constituted. The
only possible reason for continued ob
struction now existing is the hope that the
leal quibbling of the laws favor a parti

of railroad and other corporate interests
may pi-event the legislation that the peo
ple demand at our hands.

pointed by me, opportunities still exist for
an adjustment of the present trouble in a
manner favorably to all concerned, and to
that end 1 would be pleased to receive and
consider any proposition you may have to
make, either verbally or in writing, that
does not bring into question the integrity
of the legislature as low organized and the
acts of the executive in relation thereto. If
no such adjustment can be made we will
be under the necessity of promptly proceed
ing to business without the valuable aid
and advice of yourself and political friends,
and let the people of Kansas judge between
Douglass Replies to the Letter.
Douglass then read his reply. He set
forth once more the Republican claims,
the alleged revolutionary action of the
Populist minority and the "forging" of the
rolls by Ben C. Rich. Speaker Dunsmore
said: "I have no reply to made to the let
ter of my friend. Actions speak louder
than words'" When Douglass had finished
a unanimous vote of indorsement was ad
opted by the Republican house. Ijiter
Dunsmore said that his side means busi
ness and that the Republicans will have to
go out or be put out. There will be a riot
w hen t he crisis comes. The hot-heads can
not be controlled on either side.

ARCHBISHOP FEEHAN VERY ILL.
The Chicago Prelare Passes a Dangerous
Chicago, Feb. 1. Archbishop Feehan
has been lying dangerously ill at the arch-
episcopal residence on State street for two
weeks or more. The illness of the eminent
churchman has been known to but a few
of his household and two of the priests at
the Cathedral parish rectory until the
latter part of last week, when his brother.
Dr. t eeuun, a promineut phvsician of St.
Louis, was summoned to tbe bedside of
the archbishop. The trouble grew out of
a severe cold, aggravated by stomach
ailment. The crisis is now believed to
have been passed, the only danger feared
being that arising from a possible relapse.
