Washington, Oct. 13. The adjournment
this morning of the senate is said upon the
authority of a senator whose avenues of in
formation have heretofore been unap
proachable to have been the resnlt of a
conference held during the late hours of
the night, during which an amendment
proposed by Harris to the repeal bill was
considered as a basis for a compromise.
The silver men look upon the action of the
chairman of the finance committee as a
surrender of the field, but the repeal men
assert with equal vigor that the adjourn
ment was only made necessary by reason
of the inability to get a quorum, a condi
tion of affairs that grew out of what they
held to be the dilatory tactics of the silver
WASHlKGTOS.Oct. 13. "What's the news
from the senate?" is the question asked
of any one who happens to have business
that takes him to any of the executive de
partments these times. The interest felt
in the progress of the great struggle of
eudurauce in the senate chamber was
manifested by repeated enquiries as to
what the prospects were of a vote. When
the reply was made that all present indi
cations pointed to the probability of the
on test continuing through another night
and day, and that as fur as toe silver men
were coi. cornea their supply ot reserve

expressed was not great, because the

Allen Gets Through at Last.
It was not until H a. tit. that Allen of
Nebraska sat down in the senate, having
s.uiken fourteen hours and being about as
fresh as when he begau. During his speech
the usual uight scenes had been enacted
and the silver men had insisted on the
attendance of a quorum, made up usually
of the repealers, of course. An attempt
to take a recess was made, emanating
from Faulkner, who proposed a recess
fr.im 7 to 10 o'clock, but the silver jiien
rejected he overture. During the morn-
in.; a vote was taken on the I'effer amend-
m ul to the pending bill, which amend

There was an idea thai the vote was

Martin Takes l'p the Sjeuking.
Martin of Kansas then took the floor to
talk against time. He wanted the Demo
crats to compromise among themselves
and do something. While he was talking
Stewart read a letter he had received
threatening him with a dynamite bomb.
Hoar suggested that the reading of such
letters in the senate could do no good. He
had had three such letters from the west,
and so bad Senator Sherman.
Martin I suppose that the letters re
ceived by the senator from Massachusetts
were from people who had recently gone
west from Massachusetts.

Martin, and then he went on with his

Some Uemarks of Martin.
Martin said he would fight the bill to
the last instant of recorded time. He de
clared that if Cleveland had written before
his election the letter which be has recent
ly written to Governor Northeu, the Dem
ocratic party "would not have been in it,"
and that if the Democrats had announced
themselves ou the money question before
the election as they have done within the
last sixty days, Benjamin Harrison would
be today president of the United States by
an overwhelming majority. Martin's
speech was rather "wild and woolly" in
form of expression, and he closed it at 4 p.

DUBOIS DEFIES THE SENATE RULE.
He Will Not Vote Although the Senate
Kefuscs to Excuse liiiu.
There was. an iucident of the vote on the
iYffer amendment that should" not be
omitted. On the first vote there was no
quroum aud when a quroum was obtained
Dubois declined to vote. Vilas called at
tention to that fact and stated that it was
a violation of the senate rules. The vice
president caused the rule' on the subject
te be read and then ordered the clerk to
call the name of the senator from Idaho.
Senator Dubois' name was called, but he
made no answer. Then the vice president
said that he would hear any excuse which
he desired to make. The principal reason
assigned by Senator Dubois was that a
motion to lay on the table a most 1 ca
rt ant amendment had been made, thus
cutting off debate, and the senator who
here offered the amendment (Senator
Peffer) had asked the courtesy of the sen
ate to address it for a few minutes and had
This Dubois thought a sufficient excuse.
The vice president sub nitted the question
to the senate whether Dubois should be
excused, and it was decided in the negative

was again called, and be stilled remained
silent. Senator Maudcrson began to argue
the parliamentary question as to the im
possibility of compelling a senator to vote,
but Senator Aldrich made the point that
no debate was in order pending a motion
to lay on the table. The point was sus
tained by the vice president, who added
that the recording of the facts on the jour
nal ended the entire proceeding, which

After speaking till 6:00 p. m. Teller
pleaded an important engagement and
ked permission to yield the floor until
today which was granted and Stewart
opened once more. During his speech
there were several calls of the senate to
secure a quorum, but up to 8 p. m. no at
tempt to carry out Voorhees' threat was
made and the free silver reserve snoozed
away in the cloak rooms while the repeal
ers had to prop their eyes open in t-e
chamber. Another call being asked at 8:20
Voorhees wanted to know to "what extent
the right to call for a quorum may be
abused in this body; how often it may be
resorted toand whether with a knowledge
that a quorum is present that rule can be
resorted to every five minutes in order to
impede the progress of business. My in
quiry is whether there i:j any limit or re
straint or whether this rule stands in the
same need of reformation that some other
rules of this body do."

notices of amendments to the repeal bill
at intervals during the debate. They were
all of a more or less free coinage character.

Jackson, Mich., Oct. 13 Two sec

9:40. While the first section was
standing at the station for breakfast,
the second section, running at the
rate of 40 miles an hur, ran

coaches and one engine. The acci

The number of dead is now placed
at 17: injured at least 52. The de

All the dead and injured have been

those injured are so badly hurt they
will probably die.

lleiu. to Weaken and Finally
Submit to lleafeat.
During the evening there had been
frtquent conferences between Gorman and
Voorhees and there was talk of a recess.
It is certain that such a tniug was pro
posed and agreed to so far as the repealers
were concerned, this state of things being
brought about by the continuous roll calls,
which were aided by the refusal of the sir
ver men to appear in the hall and also
their refusal to answer to their names
when in the hall, also by the fact that the
Republicans got tired of assisting the
Democrats in the fight, Sherman going
home declaring that ten hours a day of
such work was all he would consent to
do. When the proposition was made to
the silver men, however, Stewart refused
to quit talking and said be would go on
until Sunday morningl
Later when a roll call was demanded
Voorhees demanded all the absentees and
after a protracted wait three came In all
repealers and this was the result of the
threat. The silver men evidently had the
whip hand under senate rules. They could
not be brought to the senate -chamber un
der the "request" system of obtaining the
presence of absentees, and those in the
chamber would not answer to their names
when present and could not be compelled
to do so. To this condition it had come at
last. About 12:30a. m. many members hav
ing gone home, Wolcott made an informal
proposition to 1-aulkner, who was in the
chair, that he (Wolcott) would secure a
quorum none had been present for over
an hour if the repealers would consent to
adjournment. But Faulkner promptly
About 1 o'clock Galliuger said he
wanted a rest, and Voorhees said he had
had but one hour's sleep in forty-five. He
hoped a quroum would soon appear. Hill
of New York protested against any action
that would prevent Senator Ste wart, who.he
aid, sarcastically, had had no opportunity
of making a speech from enlightening the
senate. "Thanks," said Stewart. "Don't
meution it." replied Hill with a generous
wave of his hand, and the galleries ap
plauded. At 1:05 a quorum appeared aud
Stewart continued his speech.
Fifteen minutes later Wolcott proposed
a call of the senators for a quorum and
only thirty-six senators appeared. The
sergeant-at-arms reported the number ab
sent, excused, etc., and immediately fol
lowing this report Voorhees said that in
view of the report of the serjeant-at-arms
it was evident no further business could
be transacted aud he therefore moved that
the senate adjourn. There was no opposi
tion aud the senate at 1:45 adjourned.
