Washington-. Sept. . There whs n
feature in the senate debate on the repeal
bill in which Voorhees displayed not a
little temper ia a colloquy with Hale and
a feature in the senate is hailed w ith sat
isfaction by readers of congressional news.
The first speech on the repeal was made
by Faulkner, who while willing to go a
long way with the president was uu will
ing to vuts for repeal without a provision
for the coinage of from C00.000 to 800,000
silrer dollars of the "daddy" kind. Then
Turpie took the floor and gave his view of
the way to solve the problem. He gave
the history of money for the last 4X years,
to begin witif
Turin" for He venue Only.
He wanted silver demonetized and said:
"We are about to approach Bn era of com
mercial liberty unknown to ns for a gen
. eration. An era in which commerce with
all nations (save for the necessary im
ports laid upon it for revenue) will be free
s the ocean which bears it. The restora
tion of the silver dollar the remonetiza
tion of silver will I great reforms, but
how shall these compare with the restitu
tion of freedom of the ballot? That free
dom has been assailed. M.llions of dol
lars at e-ery presidential election extorted
from the people by unjust taxation have
been expended to debauch and destroy the
franchise. This maleflicient dynasty of
fraud and force is now entering lue valley
of death's shadow. It is soon to be de
throned." Voorhees Asks for a Vote.
Jones of Arkansas spoke against the re
peal bill and would resist its passage as
long as possible unless it were coupled
with a free silver provision. After he vas !
through, no one arising to speak, Voorhees '
eaia he hoped the senate would not adjourn
early, and if no sen itor wanted to speak
he would ask for a vote on the repeal bill.
Hale hoped that the senator from Indi
ana would not consent to an immediate
adjournment. The senator, Hfter having
given up the 11 o'clock proposition, found
himself also in danger of losing the full
morning hour. He therefore called his at
tention to the fact that he was being cut
down to a very slender thread of time to
be consumed in specchmnking on the hill.
Hale Trie to Hurry Voorhee.
There hail been no attempt to cut ofl
debate, but the time for debate had been
cut down uncil instead of five or six hours
there was only three or four. The senate
had been in session for six weeks entirely
on this bill ami be suggested that the
sittings should be lengthened. He knew
the senator from Indiana did not enjoy
the delay, and a liirpe majority of senators
bad upheld his hnnds. The Republicans
had made few speeches nnd were ready to
Tote and urging thnt action. He did not
desire to have the senator from Indiana
crowd and force matters in an offensive
way; but he did ask him to hold the sen
ate to whnt hnd been always its rule and
to see to it that debate should not be so
spread out and attenuated until every
current of action was turned away and
came to nothing.
Who la Impatient and Angry.
Voorhees who hnd listened to these re
marks with unconcealed impatience and
anger rose to reply to them. He said
that the zeal of the senator from Maine
had been manifested very early in the ses
sion. His desire to ntsist the senator from
Indiana was deeply appreciated. It would
be more appreciated, however, if the sena
tor from Maine had been in his seat more
than one of the six weeks of the session.
He desired to say to that senator and to
all concerned that the senator from Indi
ana expected to discharge his dutv n h
understood it, and in a way for which he '
would answer to the country. "The sena-
tot irom .Maine Has taken a monopoly of
direction, of lecturing, of dictation (if 1
may use such a term).".
COMPLAINS OF BEING "NAGGED."
And Concludes That Forbearance Has
Ceased to lie Virtue.
A Democratic senator suggested "nag
gins" and Voorhees adopted it.
"Xagging," he repeated, "yes. The
whole country knows that the senator
from Indiana occupies a trying position. I
have been hurried by the senator from
Maine to an extent which strains the
limits of forbearance. He wanted action
the next day after the president's message
was read. He wanted the finance commit
tee to report a bill next day and to bring
It to an immediate vote. That was an
utter impossibility an absurdity and
the senator knew it. The 'tirade
is for no other purpose than to advertise
to the public that there is a keen desire
for action on that side of tbe chamber and
ior ueiay on tuis siue.
"The senator from Maine used the.terms
drive,' 'domineer,' 'control.' It is known
that these words do not pertain to this
place. The word 'control has no mean-
iuB bo ir t me action ol tins great body
is concerned. The term 'drive' is as dis
placeb and offensive as possible. The term
'domineer' is still more so. We nre a sen
ate of equals; and I propose to treat every
enntor as my peer on this floor, giving
him his entire rights; and at the end of
proper discussion 1 shall exjiect every sen
ator to recognize the propriety of censing
discussing and proceeding to a vote."
Hule disclaimed any intention of giving
offense to the senator from Indiana. He
did not really think that thnt senator felt
the indignnri n which he m iinifested. It
was only in the interest of helping him

management of this bill."
"I think," Hale replud, "that the sen
ator is doing tiie bt-st be knows how doing
it faithfully anil ably."
'I cannot return the compliment." Voor
hees snapped bacR. "I cunnot say t hat the
senator front Maine is doing the best he
can: if lie were, he will t ike his seat."
'"That, of course, is an easy jibe," said
Hale, "and miy senato- can at any time
make it upon another. B it t tic time has not
come when a senator on this side oft lie

and express himself fre ly without being
sneered down by attacks like tiiat of the
senator from Indiana. I spoke not only

until in deference to the wishes of sena
tors I withdrew the resolution for the 11
o'clock session (which I would have been

THEATRICAL VETERAN DEAD.
Richard M. Hooley, the Widely-Known
CHICAGO, Sept. 9. Hich ird M. Hooley,
the veteran theatrical man iger, died at his
home in Delaware Place yesterday after
noon. He had been in poor health for
so ire time and on Mondaj last submitted
to an operation which proved too much
for his constitution, rugge l as it was for
a man of his years. Mr. I!ooley was one
of Chicsgo's ablest theatrical malingers
and his career threads the history of local
management. He was born in Ballina,
County Mayo, Ireland, April 13, l&TJ.
After a careful education, during the ac
quirement of which be became an expert
violinist, he came to New York in 1844
and signed a contract to a'sunie the nom
inal leadei ship of a minstri'l organization
headed by the famous E. V. Christie.
Two years later Mr. Hooley organized a
minstrel company of his cvn, with which
he returned to England am: the provinces
The young manager came back to Amer
ica in 1M53, making the overland trip to
San Francisco in 1S.V. Af t r staying there
a few years he went to New York, but
finally came to Chicago in 1S.VJ and built
Hooley's Opera house, wi ere the Grand
Opera house now stands, on Clark street.
This was successful until it was destroyed
by the great fire of lbTl. In ls?J he built
the present Hooley's thei tre, which has
been run continuously under his manage

Akkansas Citt, Kah., Sept. 9. Rev. L
N. Merriweather, pastor of the Baptist
church of this city, announces that he
has perfected an organization for a Social
istic colony to be established in the Chei
okee strip. In a proclamation "To the
citizens of Ame.ica and the Strip boom
ers," he says that "au organization has
been perfected for the free and certain set
tlement and maintenance of every home
less, honest person. Twenty eligible claim
takers have banded together to hold their
lands in common and to build factories
which will employ from 10,000 to 50,000
colonists of good moral character.
"This plan is formed from a Christian
model and principle. It is no lalse money
getting swindle. Every one who will stand
by the enterprise will be given an equal
share in the homes, employment and edu
cation of this commune, whether he suc
ceeds in getting it claim or not. No fees
and no self-seeking. Good backing, ideal
principles, liberty, fraternity, equality."
Merriweather lieclines to give particu
lars of his plans, but announces that he
will enlighten the public on all salient
points from his pulpit Sunday night when
his theme will be "Christianity for the
strip and the world."

citizen of this city, admits that the pre

issuance of orders.
A Parade of the Roomer.
There was a demonstration here today
snch as is only seen once in a lifetime. It
was a parade of all the boomers who in
tend to enter the strip from this point on
horseback. The procession was nearly five
miles long. One feature was fifty Ken
tuck ians on their thoroughbreds.
Ontrajre at a Hoomer's Camp.
WirniTA, Kan., Sept. 9. The boomers'
camp at Hunnewell is in a turmoil of ex
citement over the killing there of four fine
race horses and the ham-stringing of seven
others. The outrage is charged to a gang
of shiftless boomers who have nothing of
their own and claim that no one has a
right to the advantnge which possession of
a fast horse will prove in the race for land.
POPULISTS AND "PROTECTIVES."
The Anti-llomish Society Refused In

Toi'EKA. Kan., Sept. 9. Application has
been made to the secretary of state for a
charter for the 'Protective Association of
the State of Kansas." an nnti-Iloman Cath
olic organization the object of which is "to
protect our country and its free institu
tions against the secret, intolerant, and ag
gressive efforts that are persistently being
made by certain religious political organ
izations to control the government of the
United States and destroy our blood
bought civil and religious liberty; to main
tain our free public school system, and
oppose the union of church aud state."
It is probable that a charter may not be
granted. At least Secretary of State Os
borne announces that he will not author
ize the existence of such an incorporation
until he is compelled to by the courts or
advised to do so by proper legal authority.
He said that he .did not believe there was
a law authorizing the incorporation of such
Bn association. Further than that he de
clined to give his reasons for refusing to
issue a charter. It is common report in
the state house that the Populists regard
the application as a scheme to involve
them in the religious controversy.
