FIGURES POINT TO A DEFICIT.
Wasmxi.ToS, Oct. 'J1 1. tiir:iian, Kan- i
mm, White, C'ockrell, Vilas, (iray, Wal-
thu'l and ISIackburn, the committee ap
pointed to wait on Secretary Carlisle and j
to submit to him propositions looking to
compromise on the repeal bill, remained
in "executive session" with him at the
treasury for an hour and a half, tiormau
was the first to leave. Carlisle was seen 1
after his senatorial visit, rs had departed 1
and stated that he had nothing whatever
to communicate as to the nature of their .
call or its result. The vuiting senatorial
ambassadors returned to the Capitol in
traKgliuK order.sonie of the m first calling ,
at the White House. Cam len, -Harris, '
aud Jones of Arkansas subseiueiitly held '
a long consultation with Cockrell. So fur j
as could be ascertained nothing definite
had been accomplished. '
Where the Contestant "Are At."
Carlisle, it is said, was unyielding in the ,
original stand taken by him in favor of j
' unconditional repeal. The belitf, how- I
ever, exists in
committee that the
concede a repeal to take effect at a future took up his se-ial again
date, and that was one of the contentions
dincussed for some time. The repeal men
want the time fixed for January, or at
the latest July 1, ls'..."i, while the more
conservative si !ver men want it to extend
to Jan. 1, ls'.nj. The extremists insist t
that repeal shall not take effect until j
after the close of this administration, the
amount ot silver purchases being reduced
in the meantime to $-;.inHi,utM worth each '
Anti-lieealer See Troulile Ahead.
One tiling was apparent In the senate,
aud that was the evident alertness of t lie
anti-repealers. They snuffed the battle
from afar the bat tie of cloture, and all!
the speeches were devoted to showing that j
cloture was all wrong. The senate is still i
in the li g:slative day of Tuesday, having j
taken recesses instead of adjourning each
day. The subject before the senate was !
the correction of the journal on Teller's J
motion regarding the absence of his own
name. Stewart made a speech denouncing
the gold ring, he having read the speech of
Comptroller Kckles at the bankers' con
vention at Chicago He intimated that all
the comptrollers played into the bauds of
the banks and wneu their terms were
ended the b inks took care of them. TJieu
he cjncluded by saying that the vice presi
dent would not make himself infamous by
any assistance in changing the rules.
Dubai l olluwa l'p the Line.
.This was the keynote and Dubois spok e
on the same line in warning, fleprecation
and denunciation of any attempt to change
the rules so that the majority could insist
on a vote. Palmer of Illiuois broke in after
Dubois had closed with a request for unan
imous consent that Teller's name be
entered on the journal as, present. He
though such a reasonable request should
be conrtiouBly acceded to. lYis all with
aly sarcasm. Of course there were ob
jections and Palmer threw up his hands
andsaid 1 abandon "the motion in despnir."
As he sat down the wail of a child in the
gallery was heard and Palmer exclaimed
"Listen to the echo of my despair."
Laughter. Call opposed a change of
rules, and Butler said there wouid he

WasIUM.,tus, Oct. -U Senator McPh.r
on, from the ilnance committee, has sub
mitted to th j senate the report of the
committee on Stewart's resolution that
"The secretary of the treasury is d. reeled
to inform the senate whether there is
danger of a dtficieucy in the .-even ties of j
the government during the curreut year,"
etc. The matter wis rtferred to the;
secretary of the treasury, and his reply
constitutes th report the committee siilr- I
seven persons were killed and about as
maiiy badly injured. The fart mail north
bound crashed into the I'ont'ac district

fcY' from the Kankakee and Smthwest
ern rsilway preparatory to coming to this
city on the main line of the Cetitr.il. The
location of the wieck is a desolate stretch
of prairie by night, being quite low and
very flat. There is nothing at the junc
tion but the railway statiou, aud the
night operator and a s itchman are all
that are usually there,
Facts cry Hard to irt.
Owing to the location of the disaster and
the alleged ignorance of the Illinois Cen
tral officials as to the facts it is impossible
to find out the names of the killed, if any.
and only a few of the injured can be named
at this writing. Following are those

From the most authentic sources tiie
following account oflhe wreck has lieen
obtained: As the fast mail came rumbling
into Otto tneie wa no sign of danger at
the station. Lights a'xiut the statiou and
at the side tracks si. cue out clear and true.
It was a clear night, and away on ahead
the rails glistened in the light of the in
coming train. The main track ahead was
clear. Just as the mail train approached
the curve Kngineer Smith saw the black
string of coal cars, heavily loaded and
drawn by a ponderous freight engine,
round the curve, speeding toward the
main line, lioth trams were converging
toward the same point. It was too late for
either of the trains to be stopped.
Conflicting storic of the Diater.
There are discordant stories of the kind
of efforts put forth by the engiteers. Some
insist that Kngineer Smith, seeing his
only salvation in getting by the union of
tracks before t lie great freight could pile
upon him, increased his speed to tho
greatest power. The same ones insist that
tiie freight engineer tried to stop, but
could not. Tne trains hurried on toward
each oilier. The engine of .he mail had

Butler then intimated that the galleries
were packed in the interests of the senator
from New York and said he would be
very glad to invite that senator out to
some street corner where they could have
it out fur the benefit of the masses. This
invitation was misunderstood by Matider
son, who made a point of order upon it,
but withdrew the point when Butler ex
plained that Lis invitation was one to
apeak, not to fight. Then Hill got into a
colloquy again and said that the rules tied
the hands of the senate, but that the senate
could change the rules. "Howf" asked
Hill By offering at the proper time and
place aud occasion (to be determined by
the majority) an amendment to the rules,
and then proceeding, as may be regulated
by the majority, to vote upon it. There is
jio practical difficulty it aud he empha
sized the "if" and repeated it the ma

rules." Here Butler asked Hoar whether
he thought there was any power in the
senate to change the rules and the veteran
