therefore, njnst be considered in committee

The Speaker' l riion of the Toint.
The speaker in deciding the point yester
day stated that the bill was laid before the
house for r fen-nce only, unless it lie a
house bil' with senate amendments, which
did not require consideration in committee
of the whole. The question was one of
fact as to whether the senate amendments
to this bill required Mich consideration. In
thesenateaiiieinlmcnts the anicieof 'flour"
was mentioned. This was a new and dis
tinct subject matter of taxation, and it
seemed to the chair that this amendment,
at least, must hr.ve its first consideration
in committee of the w hole. This bill wa
before the house for reference to a standing
or a select commit rep, and not for present
consideration. The judgment of the chair
was that the bill should lie referred to a
standing or select committee.

Sherman Makes an Kxplanation.
Sherman spoke of having reported from
the commitu-e on nuance the bill to sus
pend the purchase of silver bullion and
said that he had often seen the question
discussed in the newspapers why he had
not moved to take it up. He had stated to
Eenators over and over again that he did
not consider it his duty to move to take it
tip until he was satisiied that there was a
majority of senators to stand by him and
press it. And he said now that whenever
i lie was Mire that there was a majority in
favor of it he would move to take it up, as
it was his duty to do. It was equally the
right of any ether senator to make that
motion and it would not be discourtesy
either to himself or the committee ou
Jray What better evidence can you
have of the disposition of the senate than a

Hints at Closure in the Senate.
In reply Sherman practically repeated
what he had before said and stated that he
had taken the means to find out whether
there was a majority in the senate in favor
of taking the bill up and had satisfied him
self that there was not and he would not
call it up under those circumstances. He
then expressed his confidence that no at
tempt would be made to prevent full effect
being given to the expressed will of the
majority. ko such attempts had ever been

The result was 151 yeas to B4 nays. The

OPENED UP THE SILVER QUESTION.
HAWAII ANNE.XERS ARRIVE,
Do Not ant I ni vernal Suffrage on the
Washivcton, Feb. 4. The commission
ers of the provisional gbVefhmentof
Hawaii, who are here to present to the
government of the United States the pro
position of annexing the islands to this
country, reached Washington yesterday.
The hour of their arrival was too late in
the day for them to meet any of the officials
of thib country and the arrangement made
for their reception did not includean inter
view wit h any of them before today. The
commissioners received a number of repre
sentatives of the press at their rooms and
talked freely and frankly of their errand.
A Condition They Desire.
In speaking about the matter Castle
said: "There is one condition that we very
much desire shall I contained in any
agreement t hat may be determined upon
and that is that the right of suffrage shall
be restricted. We want no universal suf
frage on the islands. If to accomplish this
it is necessary to lose our own right to vote
we are perfectly willing to abandon that.
If we might be allowed to suggest, the form
of government of the District of Colombia
seems to afford the most desirable one for
the Sandwich islands. We don't want a
territorial government in w hich there shall
lie a legislature elected by the votes of all
the people. However, as I said before, we
are perfectly willing that the United States
shall fix the conditions npon which we
shall lie taken into fellowship."

Teller Gives Notice that the Sherman Lav
Can't He Repealed.
Washington, Feb. 4. In the senate
yesterday Tt Her in present ing a couple of
petitions on the silver question, addressed
the senate on the subject. He would hesi
tate to occupy the time of the senate now
had not the newspnpers announced with
some appearance of authority that there
was to be an extra session, and the remedy
could soon lie applied. They bad been told
in the public press that a gentleman close
ly connected with the incoming adminis
tration had announced as a certain thing
that if the Slirniwu bill were not repealed
at this session an extra session would he
called. He (Teller) had recently received a i ,''ia' the revolution was a complete sur-
great number of letters from various
section.-) of llio country, and there seemed 1
to lie a good deal of apprehension in the
prise to him; that he had been absent on
. the Hoston visiting the other islands, and
to find the coup ahont accom-
minds of the people t hat the Sherman act
might be repealed and that the era of con
traction would then be entered uKn.
"Allnries at" the Prefcldent-Klcct.
He quoted from au article in a New York
paper to the effect that a distinguished
gentleman closely allied to the incoming
administration had stated authoritatively
that the incoming president had deter
mined that the Sherman act should be re
pealed at this session. Just exactly what
the president-elect bad to do with the sub
ject he (Teller) was somewhat nnable to
determine. . In the course of his experience
and observation he had never seen any
thing more indecent in any publication, if
it should be traced anywhere near the
president-elect. He did not intend to as
sert that the president-elect was in the
slightest degree responsible for the article,
and be had only cited it for the purpose of
showing the indecent method employed
by the newspaper press, and by the boards
of trade in certain sections of the country,
to bring about the repeal of the Sherman
Very Confident of His Facta.
Teller said in conclusion: "I want to
say to the business interests of the country
that at this session of congress It is not
among the possibilities that the Sherman
act will be repealed. They may have that
assurance and govern themselves accord
ingly in their enterprises. I cannot speak
for the next congress. I know nothing of
what will occur then. We shall have new
men, new questions, new influences. lint,
in my judgment, the act of 1890 will not be
repealed until something better is offered;
or at least if it be repealed we will live to

Sherman said be would not call up the re

be taken np, and Hill gave notice that he
wonld call it up Monday. Eulogies were
delivered in memory of Senator Barbour
and the senate adjourned.
In the house the speaker decided that the

A Small Town In Iowa That Doesn't Be
lieve In Prohibition.
Deb Moines, la,. Feb. 4. Pella is a town
in Marion county populated almost exclu
sively by Hollanders, who have no nse at
all for the Iowa prohibitory law and in
their daily life pay no attention to it. Yes
terday afternoon a constable named J. R.
Allen arrived in Pella and with his assist
ant proceeded to raid the saloons and con
fiscate the liquors. When the Hollanders
understood what was going on a howling
mob congregated and the goods were re
captured. Told to Call on the Sheriff,
Allen immediately telegraphed to Gov
ernor Boies demanding that a company of
militia be sent from Des Moines to put
down the riot. He was told to call npon
the sheriff, but by this time quiet was re
stored. No violence was offered the con
stable, although violent threats were made.
