Washington', Oct. 4 When the fall of
the vice president's pavel annouuced tho
ftetmte to have met there were only a few
Kepublieans in the chamber, ami not a
Democrat visible. The lack of a quorum
was called to the attention of the chair,
and after n delay of fifteen minute-; a quo
rum was obtained and the business of
the day begun. The vice president laid be
fore the senate a communication from the
secretary of the treasury giving a de
tailed statement of the exports of silver
for the months of July and August. Du
bois of Idaho introduced a bill enabling
the states of California, Colorado, Mon
tana and Idaho to support state schools
of mines. Morgan of AlaWuna offered an
amendment to the Wilson repeal bill, de
claring the act of Jan. IS, ISoT, to be in
White Milken the Amende Honorable.
White of California said he had ex
amined carefully the Hunkers' .t.agazine
of August, l7:t, and had found the state
ments made by Sherman Monday concern
ing a certain art icle in that magazine to be
correct, and that his quotation from tho
publication was erroneous. White also
read from the Congressional Record to
show the statement as it had been given
was made as early as lsts. D.ilph of Ore
gon then took the floor and continued bis
speech, begun Monday, in support of the
silver repeal bill. Dolph quoted from the
message of President Cleveland of 15
urging the discontinuance of the purchase
and the coinage of silver under the
Blnnd-AllUon act. He characterized this
as a stronger argument against the use of
silver than he was able to olTur, nud he
said he read :t for the purpose of showing
that Democrats who advocated the reten
tion of the Sherman act are not iu accord
With their purty leaders. He declared that
the success o: the Democratic parry with
such a candidate and such a platform was
abundant evidence of tne fact that the
American people did not de-ire tocoutinue
the coinage of silver under existing condi
tions. 'Idler Interrupt.
Teller interrupted Dolph to ask him
what chance he thought there was of se
curing any recognition of silver under the
administration of a president who holds
the views expressed by Mr. Cleveland.
To this Dolph replied that he did not ex
pect there would be any legislation con
cerning silver under the present adminis
tration while the conditions remain as
at present. lie did not know of a single
utterance of Mr. Cleveland that he had
changed his position in opposition to the
further purchase and coinage of silver
dollars. He did not expect to secure any
legislation without international agree
ment. Dolph quoted the statement that
minorities are radical and majorities con
servative, which he used as illustrating
the nnturalness of the change of the Dem
ocratic party since it had come into power.
When the Democratic party was in the
minority it could afford to favor free
coiuage, but now that it had a majority it
had necessarily become conservative on
Teller Auks Another Ouestlnn.
Teller asked Dolph if he had any reason
to suppose that the president had taken
any steps looking to secure the co-operation
of other nations in the interest of sil
ver. Dolph replied that he was not ac
quainted with the plans of the adminis
tration, but had no reason to suppose that
tho president was not now, as formerly,
friendly to the project for an international
agreement. He could not doubt Cleve
land's good faith when he states that he
desires such an arrangement. Many be
lieve that the repeal of the Sherman
would hasten an agreement with other
nations and it was possible that Cleve
land might entertain this idea.
THE HOUSE STILL TALKING.
the bill oenon' lnatea isxrcasMcauyj vue
election laws as a "frightful spectre," and
then went on t ridicule the house for
the slim attend mce at the debates. He
understood, however, that the giants were
training for the last great struggle. They
were tightening up their "belly-bauds."
While the giauiswere in training quar
ters the house was deserted. When the
giants shied I Ite r hats into the ring the
attendance might be larger. After ex
pressing his opp isitiju to the pending bill
he went into a d ssertation upon -he rights
of settlers on Southern l'acitic railroad
lands, and this c insumed the remainder of
Det'orrest of Connecticut followed with
an argument iu avor of the bill. He de
nounce! the law as Republican attempts
to ovetride the free expression of the d.-
mands of the t'rej American people at the
polls, and demanded, as the Democratic
party had demc ided, their immediate re
peal iu the interest of fair and free elec
tions. Then Dnnphy of New York asked for
the Immediate toriMdcrutio'i of the New
York and New Jersey bridge bill. Warner,
of the same state, said that he would not
interpose an obj 'etion, though he would
vote against it. He was not satisfied with
the good fait of t hose who asked for tii
charter. Th vote on the bill resulted:
Yeas, 14; nays, 14 Warner raised the point
of no quorum. The house then at 4;."5 ad
journed. RUMORS CF A COMPROMISE.
Iroiuiiient Senulors Oitoteil iu Favor of
Washington, Sept. 4 There are rumors
of every kind arcund the senate as to the
prospects of repe il, but no tangible facts.
It is asserted thic the silver men in the
course of a day r two will compel the
friends of repeal to r..ainta;n a quorum of
their own in order to keep the repeal bill
before the senate. To do this it is said
the repealers will have to insure the daily
attendance of marly twenty more sena
tors than those v hose presence they have
lately been accustomed to command, and
the silver men, o ' course, express a hope
ful nnlieipurUiu that this will be too large
a task for their opponents to accomplish.
This view strengthens the rumor
ol pronaole compromise in some
shape or other next week. I'rom
ineut senators are quoted on both
sides of the question. I' rye, of Maine, is
raid to be optm ii his declaration that un
conditional repei. 1 is impossible and that a
compromise is inevitable. Voorhees, on
the other hand, s us that he will press his
repeal measure t 11 a vote is taken, and
that he hopes to -each that end before an
other week has c'osed. Ma.iderson, of Ne
braska, is uruing upon his Kepublieau as
snciates a compr muse somewhat similar
to that wliich l a ilkuer, of West Virginia,
has been pushing on the Democratic side
An outcome of tome kind seems highly
probable within the next ten days. The
tension is becoming too great to be longer
maintained without breaking.

The Election Ilepeul Hill lteing the Sub
ject Under DIacuhhIou.
The call of the committees iu the house
was unproductive of result, and the de
bnte ou the federal election repeal bill
was resumed. Xorthway of Ohio, in speak
ing against the measure said that it was a
peculiarity of his to stand by the under
dog in a fight and realizing that the
United States was the under-dog in this
fight he took some pleasure in defending
that under-dog. He then entered upon an
argument to prove that the laws were
perfectly constitutional. He finished with
u peroration which elicited for him loud
Kyle of Mississippi spoke in opposition to
the federal election law9. The minority re
port of the committee ou election of presi
dent and vice president had never been
quailed for injustice by any report that
be had ever read, and he denounced the
statement made in that report that Mis
sissippi bad the most perfectly operating
ejrgtem for fraud yet devised iu the south.
He. submitted that there was no good rea
son that Mississippi should be held up
And criticised and that the election meth
ods north o? Mason and Dixon's line
should not be apeii to criticism. He pro
ceeded to criticise the statutes of the
states from which the . members who
signed the minority report came. In his
opinion the federal election laws should
be repealed because they were unneces
sary ; because t'hey were not in the 'genius
of our government; because they were ln
consistent wicth our republican institu
tions, and became they were a tax upon

St. Louis. Oct. 4. The Pan American
bi-metallic convention met at Armory hall.
On behalf of the city ex-Congressman
Nathan Frank spoke a welcome and urged
the delegates to consider whatever the
feelings or opinions of St. Louisans might
be upon economic questions, those of the
convention would be as freely heard and as
carsfully considered as those of all the
world are ever considered here. Governor
W. J. Stone, of Missouri, spoke for the
state and accorded a most hearty welcome
to the convent ion In his remarks he re
fcrred to advantages possessed by St.
Louis, and asked what necessity there was
for going 1,500 miles farther to trade. As
to the charge that the convention was sec
tional iu its idea of commerce, he held that
the advancement of sections advanced the
S. S. King, of Kansas, responded for
the convention, expressing thanks for the
welcome. Turning to the question of sec
tionalism ami silver he declared, first,
that this country was able to get along
without the economic aid of auy foreign
nation; second, as regards silver, there
was no sectionalism other that that con
ceived by those endeavoring to debate it,
citing, as lie presented his, the solid vote
of the northeastern Atlantic .states. As
to commerce he quoted statistics showing
that the internal commerce f.om the
Mississippi valley was greater than the
combined foreign commerce of all the
world. He touched upon the depreciation
of the money value of agricultural pro
ducts by the use of the single gold stand
ard, and in closing called upon the Missis
sippi valley, the great empue of the west,
to wake up and take its p.ace in the
economics of the country.
Governor G. P. Tillman, of South Caro
lina, was chosen temporarp chairman. In
his address the governor took occasion to
charge that the reduction in the uutici-
pated number of delegates was due to the
power of the press to smother the efforts
of the masses to rise to their proper place.
Hut with all that he dared to say that the
time was coming when the west and south
would join hands and win their rights.
"God forbid that we should array one sec
tion against another, but God forbid he
more that one section become tho slave of
another." The south had felt the pressure
of sectionalism nod had felt it until the
west. In its pitiful, cowardly adhesion to
the east, had couie to feel that it, too, had
feit the iron enter rts soul. No. No sec
tionalism; but it was proposed to exerciso
the right to vote, to govern their own
states, and to send representatives to con
gress, to better voice tne sentiments ol
their constituents than some uow there.
The usual committees on credentials.
permanent organization, etc., were then
appointed. Governor LeWeihng, of Kansas,
was selected tor permanent chairman.
Fresideni Fi-ke, of t iie Hitnetallic league,
was then introduced. His address was m
exhaustive argument in favor of the un:li
cation of western interests-. He began by
saving: "We Iihvc k'en called together
for a patriotic purpose. Relieving as we
do, that existing conditions are more fav
orable to some sect ions of t he country than
to others, and believing that all sections
are entitled to enjoy the fruits of their
labor, it should be to our purpose to in
augurate measures an 1 so tar as possible
carry them into execution, which shall
end to the uplm.liliiig mid prosperity of
every section ol our common country."
He hinted al government control of rail-
wavs. etc.. and closed with a stronir idea
for internal inmrovemenis. claimim.' ir tn '
be a matter that snould be governed by
patriotism rather than by politics. In
quiry among t ose representing the states
elicits little as to the probable action of
the convention ou silver taxation and
other economic top cs. All ure bimetal
lists and some favor free coinage, though
restrictions on trade between states and
countries is a prominent topic. The Col
orado and Texas delegates have definite
plans as to silver legislation, while those
from the southern republics are more in
terested in tattering commercial relations.
New York, Oct. 4. Jack McAuliffe, the
pugilist, has distinguished himself agdn
by getting very drunk and attempting to
assault a cabman. The trouble began
about midnight when Jack McAuliffe, in
company with Mere" Dunn, drove up in a
cab to i the corner of West Thirtieth
street. Both got out and crossed the street
with a zig-zag walk. As they did so a cab
came along. Jere Dunn and McAuliffe
then seized the horse's bridle and almost
jerked the animal to its haunches.
The cabman protested. McAuliffe start
ed to climb on the box to assault the
driver. With dett motion of his whip
the cabman made its lash sing around the
tiiiL-ilist's ears and then threatened to bit
McAuliffe with the butt of the whip. I
Then McAuliffe announced his intention
of smashing the cab windows, but .was
hustled away before he was arrested.
