Attention Coinage at the Mint. The
ltoynton Case The Cruiser Detroit Ac
ceptable Government Receipts and Ex
penditure.. Washington, Oct. 3. Tne very evident
absence of a quorum of senators waa
called to the attention of the vice presi
dent by Wolcott (Kep.) of Colorado, and
there was thereupon a call of the senate,
to which (after some little delay) the re
quisite number of senators, forty-three,
responded. The morning business was
then proceeded with. A bill to give set
tlers on the public lands in Oklahoma
territory another year in which to make
their first paymeuts on the land was re
ported from the committee on public
lands and was passed. The resolution
offered by Teller last Saturday calling
for information as to the purchase of sil
ver bullion in September, 189:, was laid
before the senate and agreed to.
Sherman (Rep.) of Ohio called attention
to a misstatement contained in the speech
of White (Dem.) of California last week
quoting an article from the Banker's
.Magazine of August, 1873, as to the de
monetization act of that year. There was
no such article, he said, in the Bankers'
Magazine. The statement was false aud
fraudulent. It was an absolute fabrica
tion, and he wanted to have it marked
with the brand of infamy. White ex
l niiu'd that he had taken the extract
from other speeches and papers and had
not consulted The Bankets' Magazine to
prove the correctness of the extract. As
his attention had now been called to it
he would have the allu.-ion omitted from
all future copie of h:s speech.
The silver purchase repeal bill was taken
up and Kyle, Pop., South Dakota,
rose to address the senate, but yielded to
Dubois, Rep., Idaho. Dubois complained
of a remark made by Gorman last week
on the subject of his resolution to defer
action on the repeal bill and other meas
ures until the three vacant seats from
Montana, Washington and Wyoming
were filled. Gorman had spoken of the
resolution as one of a series intended to
obstruct action on the repeal bill. On
that statement Dubois took exception. He
said that he had offered the resolution
from a sense of duty entirely on his own
responsibility, and without consultation
with senators opposed to the repeal bill.
He was not in any plan to obstruct busi
ness. He found a precedent for the reso
lution in the filibustering of Republican
senators some years ago to prevent the
filling of committees while there were
three seats vacant in the senate.
Washburn said that he had not sup
posed that the senator from Ipaho, when
he offered, "the tesoiution had seriously
gui"pos 'd ' that the senate would sit
and allow senators to be chosenfrom states
wh ch had not performed their constitu
tional functions. The senator could not
have thought of anything so absolutely
absurd. Mr. Washburn added that f the
thrie states in question two were no!
s ive-j reducing states, and had no more
interest in the coiunee of t-ilver than any
other states of the Union. Furthermore,
tho-e two states were now respresented by
two senators, both of whom were in favor
of the unconditional repeal of the Sherman
"Please to name," Mr. Walcott inter
posed excitedly, "the two states that are
represented by senators in favor of uncon
"I will do so with great pleasure,"
Washburn suavely replied. "They are
the states of Washington and Wyoming."
"I should like, the senator from Minne
sota," sa'd Mr. Dubois, "to state on wbfse
authority he makes that statement."
"I make it on the authority of the sen
"Very well " said Dubois, "I imagine
that those senators will resent the impu
tation. There never has been a time when
members of congress from those states
have not voted for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver, and I state that the sen
ators from the states of Washington and
Wyoming on this floor are not for the un
conditional repeal of the Sherman act."
PROCEEDINGS IN THE HOUSE.
The attendance in the bouse was small,
and the speaker directed tne clerks to call
committees for reports, but none were
submitted. The debate on the federal
election bill was resumed, and cite bouse
was addressed by Dunsmore of Arkansas
in support of the measure. He denounced
the laws as Improper, unauthorized, un
just, unwise aud wrong. They stood as
an obstruction to the carrying out of the
wishes of the people. He expected to sea
the pledges of the Democratic party on
this question re.leemed. Such a course
was vital to the interests of the govern
ment and the happiness of the people.
The people had thrust the Democratic
party into power in order to enable it to
repeal those laws which had been put into
fjree by the Republican party.
Densou of Alabama followed In a
speech of a similar tenor, In which be
denounced the federal election laws. Re
ferring to the war he ereated a laugh by
the sentence: "You were successful, but
you did not whip us; we wore ourselves
out trying to whip you." He did not deny
that there could be violation of the fed
eral election laws in the south, but no
law had ever been enacted that had not
been violated in the north as well as in
the south. Men from the north could not
tell men from the south that "you have
the beam in your eye and we have only the
motejin ours," Laughter. Th?re were
some men who said that there might be
another war. He was not one of those.
He had had enough of that. Laughter.
He then proceeded to argue '.against the
federal election laws on constitutional
grounds, and he and Ray of New
York grew controversial and argumenta
tive Jon this point, Ray taking the contrary
Cooper of Florida opposed the federal
election laws. They were productive of
nothing but evil, and ought to be wiped
out with all the speed that could be given
to legislative proceedings. Clark of Mis
souri said that one of the reasons why the
people had hurled the Republican party
from power was that that party was the
inveterate enemy of free elections. The
average citizen liked fair dealing. The
peuple did not like the idea of United
States marshals swaggering around the
polling places with bludgeons in their
hands and their pistols by their side, say
ing who should vote or should not vote on
any pretence or on no pretence at all.
He then went on to discuss the negro
question, and predicted that within a
short time ihe people of the south, white
and black would be found working to
gether on all economic questions.

corporation into his forthcoming estimates

LEADS TO A POPULAR MOVEMENT.
The Mailt field Mine Disaster Stir. Cp the
People of Marquette.
Marquette, Mich., Oct. 3. The awful
disaster at the Mansfield Iron mine last
Friday has already led to a popular move
ment for the modification of the Btatute
creating the office of county inspectors of
mines and vesting in the county board of
supervisors the choice of mine inspector.
Two-thirdt cf the supervisors in the min
ing districts are resident managers or chief
clerks of the mines, thus making the
mine inspector dependent for his election
upon the very corporations whose meth
ods he is charged by law to scrutinize.
Instead of a disinterested and impartial
official he is a mere tool of the mining
companies and concludes bis perfunctory
investigations into mine accidents with a
stereotyped report exonerating the com
pany from nil blame. The next legisla
ture will be urged to make the inspector
elective by popular vote in the same man
ner as ether county officers. It is also
suggested that the county system of in
spection be abolished and a state inspector
elected, merging into his office that of
commissioner of mineral statistics.
Spanish Anarchists Active.
Barcelona, Oct. 3. Though the police
have been for the past two weeks more
than extraordinarily active in their pursuit
of anarchists it becomes evident through
a discovery that has been made that some
members of that brotherhood of criminals
are still pursuing their avocations. The
town of Villanueva-y-La-Geltru, twenty
five miles southwest oftbis city, was the
scene of the latest anarchist exploit.
When a policeman was patrolling the
streets in that town he found lying neftfftJ
that were apparently powerful enough to
have blown the house to pieces. Fuses
had been attached to the bombs and the
ground bore traces of their burning, but
the bombs were faulty in construction
and had refused to explode when the Ore
reached them. X
