A Genera! Belief Among Senators That

National Legislature Important Va

Disposal til the President Capital Brief..
Washington. Oct. 7. Althhou-h there
does not appear to be anything tangible
upon which to base the conclusion there
seems to be a general belief on the part of
senators that the silver question will be
disposed of by the end of next week. Just
how and in what way no one presumes to
say, but the fnct remains that this idea

this programme will be carried out, some
s-natmsare making their arrangements
to leave the city by the 15th of the month.
The compromise talk has been revived to
some extent and the details of many diff
erent propositions were discussed by
senators iu the cloak rooms. It is said
thai au attempt will be made next week
to hold prolonged sessions. Night sessions
will begin probably Tuesday evening and
continue until Wednesday night has been
exhansted. Then, according to reports
that have been circulated, a compromise
amendment will le offered and put to a
vote with the expectation that i. will be
How They Would Take It.
If such an amendment should be voted
down the silver men would take it as an
indication of bad faith and at once resume
the tactics that have been utilized since
this extraordinary session began, leavinc
the situation, so far as the senate is con
cerned, precisely where it was when con

If the repeal men can occupy the. r seats

BAD WEATHER AT THE FAIR.
Mist and Wind Interfere with Attractive
Chicago, Oct. 7. A terrific wind swept
through the fair grounds. A drizzling
mist accompanied the wind, and umbrellas
and mackintosh' s were in great demand.
The Administration X'laza furnished a con
tinuous source of amusement for the vis
itors. Hats were lifted from the head and
sent sailing in every direction. The women
vented their feelings in little shrieks, and
when they reached a building they usu
ally stayed there. As a result the grounds
presented a rather deserted appearance.
The features of the day were few and
unimportant. A parade of decorated
launches containing members of the
Carriage Builders' association bad been
announced for 12 o'clock, but this had to
be abandoned. The Carlisle Indian school
troops gave a drill on the terminal at 4:30
p. m. Five hundred school children from
Louisville, Ky., arrived at the park. They
are in charge of Professor Taylor, and will
remain here several days.
The Poles celebrated today. The cere
monies began with a parade in the morn
ing. The procession marched through
the bon ton portion of the city and re
formed at the World's fair grounds. The
speech-making took place at Festival hall.
Justice M. A. Ia Ruy presided. Mayor
Harrison and Dr. X. C. Midowicz and
Bishop Spauiding, of Peoria, made addresses.

Dlackburn Offers an Amendment t
Silver Purchase Itepeul Iiill.
Washington, Oct. 7. Iu a speech Black
burn intimated that he would prepare
aud offer an amendment to the silver pur
chase repeal bill which would embody his
views of a fair compromise measure. He
presented such amendment aud it was
ordered to be printed. It adopts the bill
as it passed the house, strikes out the
Voorhees declaration favoiiiijj bitnetal-
sm, and adds to the house bill n provi
sion lor the lree cotimue of savt-r of
mericnn production the difference be
tween the metal nriee of the silver .-.ml its
money value when coined to be retained
by the treasury as seiuorae, and this
seijiuorape to be sold for gold, either at
home or abroad, the gold recti veil for it
to be kept in the treasury for the purpose
of maintaining the parity between the
two metals, lhe debate on the silver
purchase repeal bill was then resumed.
N.oteveu the earnest manner of Cum-
rnings of JNew lorn could awaken the
house from the lethargy into which it
Beems to have fallen, There was no in
crease in the attendance and the various
speakers on the federal election repeal bill
received very little attention, although
some of the arguments advanced were
worthy of grave consideration.
THE DIPLOMATIC SERVICE.
Several Important Vacancies at the Presi
Washington, Oct. 7. There are still
several important vacancies in the diplo
matic service .of the government at the
president's disposal. All the foreign mis
sions of importance have been filled with
two exceptions Russia and China aud so
far no name have been mentioned for
either of these that cuu be considered as
at all available. There has been n vacancy
at St. Petersburg since the resignation of
Charles Emory Smith, a year ago. Minis
ter Denby holds the post to China to
which he was appointed by President
Cleveland, and which he continued to hold
through President Harrison's administra
tion atter the refusal of the Chinese gov
ernment to accept ex-Senator Blair; and
the nomination of his son to an advanced
position in! hi legatiou makes "it probable
that he will continue to represent us at
The president has also two or three va
cancies to fill in the Central and South
American republics, and besides these
positions there are still quite a number of
consular appointments. The president will
give his attention to all of these shortly.
Deserving Man Appointed.
Washington, Oct. 7. Secretary G regn
ant has appointed Thomas Dennis, of Illi
nois, a veteran of the Mexican war, who
lost both arms on board the United States
ship Princeton in the Mediterranean by
the premature discharge of a gun, to a
messenger position in the state depart
ment. Dennis was employed in the Chi
cago federal building and recently was in
formed that it was a question between the
retention of hin.self aud another employe.
Dennis is a bachelor and the other man
has a wife and family, ana Dennis, de
spit his affliction, voluntarily resigned
his position that the married man's fam
ily might not suffer.

Chicago, Oct. 7. Perhaps the most
modest ami undemonstrative congress yet
held ii. the Art institute was begun when
ri'prisei.tativi-s c f the Young Men's Chris
tian AsMwni'ioji t f the World gathered to
exchange v ews and listen to the wise,
ray, ugs ot their elders. The morning ses
sion was called to order by President C.

welcome to the delegates and introduced
Elbert B. Monroe, of New York, as the

tion Work." President John M. Coulter,
of the Lake Forest university, read a
paper on the work of the association in
the colleges. This was the leading paper
of the day aud was read in fine style by
the learned educator,
OCEAN RECORD BROKEN.
The New I nnsnliT I.ucania Heats the
Turih' Time One Hour.
New Yokic, Oct. 7. The fast Cunard
steamer l.ucauin, which has arrived from
Liveipool, via Queeustown, and which
came within an hour aud thirteen mifiutes
of breaking the western record (held by
the steamer Paris) on her maiden voyage,
has succeeded on this.her second, westward
trip in establishing anew record, having
made the passage in 5 days, 13 hours and
Ub minutes. The record of the Paris was
5 days, 14 hours and 24 minutes. The
Lucauia, therefore, breaks the best record
for a western trip by 59 minutes. She
passed the Daunts Rock at 1:15 p. m. Oct,
1 and was reported off Sandy Hook light
ship at 10:15 p. m. Oct. 6. Her former
(maiden) voyage was made in 5 days, 15
hours and 37 minutes, a feat regarded as
remarkable considering the fact that ber
machinery was entirely new, ana justi
fying the belief that she would break all
records on this trip, which expectations
she fully met.

Iiy the Wisconsin
Ashland, Wis., Oct. 7. There was a
wild chase through the storm and mud on
the part of the homesteaders affected by
the land decision of the Keystone Lumber
company case. Over forty of these peo
ple are involved in this one decision alone,
and the lands extend from the city Of
Ashland south for twenty-five miles, from
four to six miles in width. Among he
homesteaaers are many prominent Ash
land citizens. Just what they expected to
do it is impossible to tell. The Keystone
company has sixty days in which to ap
peal and forty or fifty homesteaders, even
if the secretary of the interior affirms the
decision, will have to fight the matter out
between themselves to decide as to whom
among them are the actual settlers.
