WasiiingTSuN. Sent. Voorhrps went
into Insti'ry in the Semite mid up n
little KiirpriHc, which in turn hroncht out
a silvery rifti.'inrp from I::liois. Vi'lien tlie
repeal bill cin:e up Voorhees proceeded
to make n tt:itenieiit to the somite, lie
said that in t lie discharge of t lie duties
entrusted to him lie had to hoi; the indul
gence of the senate while he nuide a few
remarks. He thought that it would not
lie misspent time to instruct the public
mind somewhat in reference to the orcan
izai.o;i of the sena'e. the laws of whirh
governed it and the j -nssitiilities that sur
routnled it what could and what could
not lie done. I i doinj; so he addressed
hiniwlfto the creiit body of intelligent
public opinion as well as (in certain qiiur
ters; to a dn-ie anil opaque decree of ig
norance: ipnorance in some respects inno
cent, and in others malicious.
One or the I;ule of the 'Futlier."
On the 4th of March, 17M, the senate of
the 1'nired State had convened, or endeav
ored to convene (for there were but e it lit
iu niliers present), ia the city of New
York. There wa no quorum until the
lf.tli of April. Mmrily ;.'reunr Is u system
of n.i--. hail been repotted by a committee
mid adopted by the seuate. Asa matter
of turioity, as well as of enlightenment,
he would read the eighth rule adopted on
the M:h of April:
When n question is before the senate
no motion shull be received, except for an
amendment of the previous question, for !
post polling the, main question, or to ad
lie had no ilotibc that that rule would
be a surprise to men inside of the chamber
as well as to men outside of it. The ninth
"The previous question having been
moved and secutided, the question from
the chair shall be, 'Shall t ne main ques
tion now be put,' etc., etc? "
It C'an Now, ; on Forever."
These two provisions had governed thn
s-.-nnte fur seventeen years. So thnt there
h id been a previous question in the senate
for seventeen years as there was now in
the house of representatives. It hat1 been
boirowed from the old English system of
t losing debate. It had been tried fully
and entirely; and in lsu; while Thomas
Jefferson was president of the United
St ites it had been delilierately abandoned
and never used in the senate to close de
bate from that hour to the present. He
had been arraigned by public opiniuti for
not terminating debate on the repeal bill.
As well might lie be arraigned for not
terminating the tides of tne ocean or the
blowing of northwest winds.
The Senator I'ointA a Morul.
He wished to emphasize the fact that
cloture rule once prevailed in th senate
and had been deliberately abandoned, and
that iu abandoning it the senate had
placed its government on the sense of pro
priety, the patriotism and the regard of
the public interest of every senator and
the senate itself with the certainty that
no senator would lie found to abuse the
patience of tne senate or to outrage the
public business or the public duty. For
eighty-seven years that condition of things
had existed. From lsoti to the present
time the senate had proceeded under rules
might he HRy of self-respect, of high pro
priety, not to speak of senatorial courtesy
or senatorial dignity, but of American
manhood of a sense of fairness to the
public, a sense of decency to itself, enjoy
ing all the rights guaranteed to it by the
constitution freedom and liberty of dis
cussion, wi; hout the abuse of freedom of de
bate or of liberty of discussion.
Taken u .Snipe at the Hankers.
So tl-if, in his judgment, the criticisms :
of a certain class tell and would fall from
the senate, as they fell from him. So far
as personal criticism of himself was con
cerned he might as w.ll embrace the pres
ent opportunity as another to say that
they were met with absolute and stern
defi me . And he treated with scorn and
miserable contempt discussions coming
from New York bankers or uuywhere else
as to the motives which governed him.
That kind of criticism came (he added
with much bitterness of tone) of a class of
which the bavior of the world never spoko
with respect. "And," said he, "neither
WHEN THE "FORCE" BILL WAS UP.
The Imliaiia Statesman Kxplains the Situa
tion Must Have Vote.
Voorhees, then, alluddei to the resistance
with which Democratic senators (under
the leadership of Gorman) had met the
force bill and asked whether it wasclaimed
that that bill had been debated to death?
It had not been, he said. It had been
amply debated, was displaced, unhorsed,
defeated by a majority vote under the law
of the majority under that great majestic
law which governs all liberty-loving peo
ple. It had not been talked to death. It
bad been voted to death. That was all
that he asked for the pending measure. If
there was power in the present opposition
to vote dowu the repeal bill, he asked that
that-power should be exerjised. He was
ready to eudure its fate, whatever it
might be, end bis own with it.
But he appealed to the senators to come
to a vote. Action he said had to come, and
senators might as well know when it
would come. The law of the majority
could not be ignored. In a free county it
conld not be treated with diarepect. He
was the last man to use a majority for the
purpose of trampling on the minority. A

tenncious of those rights habitually so,
constitutionally so; for he had leen in a
minority a good dea of his life, and re
spected the minority 's rights and privileges
After continuing: at sonic further length,
Voorhees said: "A vote, 1 rejieat, has to

been so often spoken or. is tin evidence that

senate tor the third t me made an ellorl
to have 'he opposition ngree to a time for
a vote an the repeal bill ami got no satis
faction, the silver senator declaring that
the bill hail not been debated sufficiently,
lie then gave notice that he would move
for longer sessions tod.y. Mills spoke for
the repeal and Stewart against cloture.
The Democrats had 17.5 liieiuliers in t!:e
house, but still lacked a quorum, and Iiur
rows, leading the lill ustering, sucivvded
in defeating t he repoitof the repeal bill
for another day. The debate was uot ex

A oorhees had not 1-mg to wait for a rt
ply to his challerge. Instantly Dubois
(Kep.) of Idaho w.-.s on his feet. He said
that the senator from Indiana had been
trying to explain to soaebody out of the
chamber why he had not been attempting
to do something coutr iry to the uignity of
the senate. lint he hud not told senators
anything hich they d d not already know.
The senator from I ml ana had tried to il
lustrate by the ' force" bill the position
that a vote could not be prevented. The
senator surely did not mean that seriously.
There never had been -i vote taken on tne
force bill. Other business had lieei. press
ing and that bill had been displaced.
The senator spoke of the opposition to
the repeal bill lieing in a minority. How
did he know that? This was the third
time the senator from Indiana had asked
unanimous consent to fix a time for vot-
lug on the repeal bill. The senator from
Iudiana had certainly some definite object
in view in his repeated requests. It was a
tafe guess that he intended to ask for long
or probably continuous sessions. II.' (Du
bois) would be entirely frank in saying
that whatever course the senator from In
diana might pursuw w uld be entirely sat
isfactory to senators of the opposition.
They were ready to join issue, whether it
were for long sessions, continuous sessions
He closed with sorie reflections on Re
publican supporters of repeal, calling
them "administratio i senators." Voor
bees then gave notice that today he would
nsk an extension of th sessions of the sen
ate. Hoar replied briefly to Dubois and
then in a sort of how-irot -to-do-it sty e ad
vocated "some" mca:is of enabling the
majority of the senate to come to a vote.
IMatt was not in favor of hat sort of plan
but produced an amendment which he
will offer to the rules giving the president
of the senate, at the written request of a
majority of the senate, power to fix a day
and hour when general debate shall cease,
said time not to be more than five days
after the request, tnd a subsequent day
not more than two days after cessation of
general debate, when a vote shall be taken.
Teller took a banc in the discussion
and resented the impl cation that dilatory
tactics had been adopted by the opposi
tion. It was a great question, ana many
senators had not yet spoken at all. Aftt r
some more debatt Mil s took the floor and
spoke for repeal auc in defense of the
president, w no he si id stood squarely iu
the Democratic platform. Stewart fol

HOUSE DEMOCRATS CAUCUS.
Determine to Keniain in Session I'ntil a
Democratic Ouni iim Is Present.
Washington-, Sept. 20. The caucus of
Democratic members of the house was
brief and to the point. Representative
Holman presided and Representative Ald-
ersou acted as secret at v. There was n full
attendance of the Democrats who had
been present during the proceedings iu the
house and the action taken, it was re
ported, had the hea-ty and unanimous
concurrence of all wl o had participated.
A resolution offered by Crisp was amended
until it was in effect, as follows: That
every Democratic member attend the ses
sions of the house and vote; that when the
bouse meets today it remain in session un
til there is a quorum voting in favor of re
porting the election law repeal biil.
This was adopted and an addition
al resolution was then agreed to that
the house proceed at early a possible to
repeal th? election law. Crisp later issued
a call for a meeting of the committee on
rules for today at U o'clock to consider
the fixing of a date for taking up the re
peal bill and determining the length of
time that snail be allowed for dvbate.
Speaking of the probabilities of the length
of the continuous stssion agreed upon,
Speaker Crisp said :ie did not look for
anything extraordinaiy or uncomfortable.
"After we get a quorum, and I imagine
that will be on hand tomorrow, the Re
publicans cannot de ain the house any
great length of time."

MYSTERIOUS CASE AT 'FRISCO.
A Young Woman's Head 1 omul on the
Itearh of a Suhnrh.
Sav Fr.ASClsoo, Sept. 20. Five days ago
a young woman's head was found near the
beach at Sausalito, a suburb of this city.
It was wrapped up in wire netting and
had twenty feet of copper wir attached.
The head bore several wounds, but it was
supposed to lie part of a dissecting-room
subject. A day or two later portions of a
woman's body, badly decomposed, floated
nshore near Oakland. The head has been
identified as that of Miss Addie Gilmour.
a comely young milliner of Colusa, and
the circumstances that have been since
developed point to a crime of a highly sen
sational character. The young woman
owned a store at I'oiusu, but about three
weeks ago she tame here ami went to work
in a wholesale house.
She lived in the Kltner House, a place of
doubt fnl repute, but was to all appear
ances respectable herself. She was l".st
seen alive Sept. 4. Her parents and her
brother arrived several days ago fro:u Co
lusa. They refuse to discuss the matter.
Their missi"ii here has been to find out
where the girl went when she left work
two weeks ago. and their search led to the
Identification of the S iusalito head. The
minor circu:nstanc s seem to make it
plaiu tlist her body wus cut up and
thrown into the bay with weights at
tached, but that the fastenings were loos
ened aud the head drifted nortn to Sausa
lito. The only clew to the murderer is the
fact that a few days ago a boy called at
the lodging-house with a note asking for
Miss Gilmours mail.
A CASE OF ROBBERS ROBBED,
Anil Now Will the Sleuths I'lease Find the
MAityrETTE. Mich., Sept. 20. After
three days' toil the detectives have cap
tured all who were directly or indirertly
implicated iu the robliery of the express
car ou the Mineral Range road last Fri
day, but are as far as ever from success
in finding the plunder. The money has
been accurately traced through the bands
of all who were in the plot, but here the
clew suddenly ends. The robbers have
either cleverly concealed the booty, or as
they aver, and the detectives are now dis
posed to believe, others have succeeded in
filching the money from the robbers them
selves. Of the 675,000 stolen from the train it is
now pretty well known that aside from
61,200 found in La Liberte's truuk none
has been recovered. John Winters and
Wesley Shoop, the men w ho handled the
truuk here, have been released from cus
