in the Senate liebnte.
Washington, Sept. 3;. A spice of inter
national interest has l't't'ii injected into
tl.e situation of aiTairs m lSr.zil through
t incidents tliat may lead to some com
plications. The tirst of these is bast t on
the ai-tion of merchant vessels flying the
stirs ninl si riH's in furnishing provisions
to the rc-hel fleet which threatens Kio Ja
neiro; the oilier in best explained by the
cable im-HMip? received by the secretary of
the navy to the effect that one lioyuton or
Hoytou not known whether it is Paul
Boynton the swimmer with the unsiuk
able rubber suit hail been captured on a
tuy flyiiis the liritish flair and having
with iiim a torpedo, presumably to blow
up one of the rebul vessels. At any rate
he is described in the dispatch nt an Amer
ican citizen and he had no right to fly the
British flan. Secretary Herbert tele
graphed to hold Kojutim until further or
ders. It I Very I'ri.hal.Iy I'bu!.
It is believed that the man captured is
I'aul Hnytiloii, the diving suit man. He
Jle is likely to do such things. Some years
ago he was detected trying to swim tiuder
the b w of a liritish warship in New
York harbor to show how, clad in one of
his suits, he could carry a dyimrnite bomb
out to a hostile ship and blow her up. Tno
state department is in daily communica
tion with Minister Thompson at Kio, and
is well informed hs to the course of events
there, which many think this Hoynton
prank will see L'ncle Sum mixed up iu. It
was Thompson who reported that Amer
ican merchant vessels were furnishing the
insurgent 11 -et with provisions, hm he
asked for instructions with reference to
3Iy Uriiuire l' to KxIin.
It is understood that in reply the ftate
dep urtment has directed the minister to
caution captains of American merchant
vessels from giving stores to the
belligerents, the L'uited States not having
recognized the rebellious faction. Whether
American vessels have actually given
provisions to the rebels and if so, whether
the government of lirazil if it be successful
, in the present trouble, will ask for au ex
planation, perhaps something more, from
the l ulled States, are questions that can
not be considered in a:iy other form than
us mere surmise. It is understood that
other questions submitted by Thompson
for advice as to his attitude in the
premises, are covered by his general in
structions and that he has been so in
formed. Is the Hoyiiton Man a IMrate?
So far us the Ii yntou case is concerned,
the navy department interprets it this
way: A tug of the Brazilian government
flying the British flag attempted to blow
up au insurgent ship. The commander of
the tug, a United States citizen, was ar
rested by British Olivers ou the charge of
piracy in showing colors under which he
had no right to sail, and was turned over
to the United States uaval authorities for
conveyan e to the United States for trial.
In support of tiie assertion that Boynton
is a pirate naval ollicials point to an act of
congress of March 3. which author
izes the president of the United States to
instruct commanders of the public armed
vessels of the government "to seize and
send into port any vessel the crew of
which shall have committed or attempted
any act of piracy upon any vessel of the
United States or the citizens thereof, or
upon any other vessel," and ou this clause
Boynton may be held a pirate. f
Think the Incident Not Serious.
But at the state department, where the
matter has lieen examined with some care,
it is said that the incident is not at all
serious. Boynton had been captured on
suspicion of intending to commit an as
sault on one of the rebel ships and had
been through courtesy turned over to the
United States commander for whatever
action the United States saw fit! to take in
his case. It is stated that no Bevere pua
ishinent could be iuflicted ou Boynton,
and that neither Great Britain nor Brazil
would attempt to hold the United States
responsible for the matter.
MORGAN STARTS A SERIAL.
A Speech llegun and No Waft Knoweth
the Knit Thereof.
Washington, Sept. 30. Two of the most
distinguished senators on the Democratic
side of the chamber Harris of Tennessee
aild Morgan of Alabama made vigorous
attacks in the senate on the silver pur
chase repeal bill. Harris asserted that
the repeal of the Sherman act would be
the bust recognition of silver as money and
that the Republicans who were now aid
ing Voorhees would desert him as soon as
they accomplished their purpose and
would oppose any measure that might be
preseuted to utilize silver in way or to any
extent. There was one merit in the speech
made by Harris it was completed. But
Morgan is an luterminableorator who can,
like the brookj "go on forever" and he
Intimated that such was his intention.
Morgan began with the oft-repeated
claim that in deferring the bimetallic
question to the judgment of the great na
tions the United States is giving up one of
its right. Said Morgan: "We are told
that we cannot exercise it wisely or justly
until we have obtained She consent of some
foreign power. If that proposition is true,
then we might just as well declare that
we are not a government, and that we
nave not got the power, under the consti
tution of the United. Stales, of taking care
' ot the important and serious interests of
tl.'e people, we iuij-.ii; just as eu ue
clare that we have never accom
plished our independence of Great Britain.
Tha seems to be the issue whether we
have actually accompli ied our independ
ence of Great Britain."
Allisou said that the ibject of interna
tional agreement was to tix the ratio so
ilint free coinage Cou U lie established aud
Morgan asked how to accomplish the ob
ject after a ratio had been agreed upon.
Allisou said by act of congress and Mor
gan replied coi:tempiut.i:sh : "Which could
be rejiealed two years i fterrard." Then
he pitched iuto the n et ropolitan press.
He stigmatized it as "a 1. editions and hire
ling press, scarcely nine to bring together
enough viperous epitl.tis to signify their
contempt of senator." "it's peiiuy-a-liners."
he added conteu ptuously, "whicn
would be glad to get a cr 1st and k dry her
ring, spew out of their mouths slanders
and declamations paid fur by the line."
Beaching the banks and bankers he said
that the reason of the hurry was that the
case of George G. Mtrritt and others
pgainst Secretary Foster of the treasury
uuiler Harrison, in whicn it is sought to
establish the contention that free Coinage
is a constitutional right will soon come
up before the suprenn court, and the
bankers are afraid sail constitutional
right will le declared by that court.
Merritt took silver bu lion to the Phil i
delphia mint and dem tided its coinage,
and being refused broug it the suit during
Harrison's adniMiistration. . And Morgan
contended that free coini ge of silver whs a
constitutional right, Gid Almighty had,
he said, established a bind of union be
tween gold and silver in the very bowels
of the earth; and "Bet not," he added,
"the Jew, Shy -lock, forbid the bans or dis
solve the contract." A plause.j
Morgan next went iuto a passionate
declaration that no man iu office, high or
low, etc., could exonerate him from from
the discharge of his duty as embassador
from a great state to insist on the people
having all their constitutional rights. No
man need be astonishedatthesluggisbness
of the senate, nor suptose that because
he thinks he ougut to have great influence
he (Morgan) would subordinate himself;
the last man in Alabama even the poor
est "nigger" was entitled to his constitu
tional rights at Morgan's hands aud would
Noliody seemed to see what this meant,
but it looked like a whac ; at the president
j At any rate, Morgan having spoken
atnmt three hours Voorhees m t relishing
the tone the oratory was taking suggested
an executive session am. Morgau rested,
stating that he had just :cguu and would
continue at some future opportunity.
THAT WHITE HOUSE CRANK.

Washington. Sept. 3o. -The authorities
are endeavoring to ascertain something of
the identity of Joseph Washington, the al
leged crank, who was arrested iu the
White House. When :he prison vau
reached the workhouse mid the prisoner
was ied to the officer, he turned to Guard
Thompson, and handinc over a ." bill
. said: "Here's a fo bill; I want the lest
room in the house." The guard, who knew
j it was necessary to hun o: the prisoner,
iook tne bill and then went through the
"I want this room," he said after he had
gone through the building, aud the guard
ltt him have it. At this : ime the prisoner
was perfectly calm and collected, but be
fore sundown he cause 1 a scare iu the

The smoke from the burning bedding at
tracted one of the guards to the cell, and
aud there it was found th it he had set fire
to an extra blanket aud pillow, in his cell
and had thrown them out the window.
Wa-SHINoTuN, Sept. 30. The senate had
difficult y iu securing a qi orum. Cameron
presented a petit ion from Wharton Burlier
and other Philadelphia men asking thut
the tariff be continued on the protective
basis and favoring bimetallism. Harris
spoke against the repeal bill. He wanted
a compromise. Morgan also oimosed t.h
j bill. He had not done at adjournment,
j uud will deliver the rest iu sections.
