Another Tear of Silver Purchases, the
Seigniorage To lie Coined and Smalt
Greenback and National Hank Notes To
lie Retired in the Interest of "Dad's"
Dollar How the Parties Look at the
Measure Capital Notes.
Washington, Oct. as. It is "conces
sion," not "compromise;" that is the
. view taken by the Democratic majority of
the bill which is to be substituted for the
j one outlined in the president's niessace to
congress. Its provisions are these: Silver
I purchases to be stopped Oct. 1, 1894; all
the silver seigniorage up to that date to be
! coined expected to reach tSO.000,000; all
greenbacks and national bank notes under
$10, except coin certificates, to be retired,
' and their places to be taken by silver
j coins. This compromise aa things stand
, can only go through If the minority ac-
cepts it unless the senate shall adopt
Fledging Themselves to Vote.
As soon as the outlines of the bill were
agreed upon the committee wrote up a
form of pledge which they proposed that
Democrats sign and in which they bound
themselves to vote for the bill. By the
j time the committee had completed its sit
, ing thirty-seven Democratic senators had
j pledged themselves aad the managers felt
assured of a sufficient number to bring
I the number up to forty-one, leaving only
two more necessary to insure the passage
of the bill by Democratic votes. The va
rious senators who are holding out against
the bill are said o be MH!s and Vilas, cf
the repeal side, and Irby, of the silver
side. There are senators absent from '.he
city Daniel and White of California, fir
instance unon whose sunnort for the
bill they entertain no doubt. There are
others of th repeal men who have not
j actually attached their names to the
pledge upon whom the managers count.
Points They Are Pleased With.
' The bill, of course, being a compromise
dues not please either side; but there are
points whicn each side counts as a vic
tory. That clause which Mops purchases
, of silver Oct. I, IM'4, is the one that the re
: peairrs cling to, while silver men think a
year is a long time and even compromises
can be smashed in a perfectly legitimate
' manner in that lime. They think, too,
that the bill is a silver bill in uearly all its
! provisions. 1 litre is one leature not in
j the bill that was fought desperately by the
'anti-repealers, and that is a bond provis
ion. The committees recommendation
will be put in the shape of an amendment
: of the Voorhees bill and will probably re
ceive the support of most of the silver Re
publicans as aa anieudment while the bill
j will as amended be opposed by them.
I l his is a piouajjiiity against t he passage
ol the Dili; tor wane the silver men wiu
vote fertile amendment and agaitist-ihe
bill, the ultra repeal men will vote against
the amendment and fur the bill.
Silver lii;lit Only ltetin.
One of the advantages which the silver
men find in the, compromise is that it gives
them ground to stand mi while the silver
light shai; be waged in t he f ut inc. They
say that the silver light has :n reality oiiiy
begun; that l he prcr-eir. hi. 1 is only a stip
ulation fur a brief t.iiie, and ih.it the is-ue.
will be pre.-sed igcu-tisly ui the regular
session. The silver nu n maiie a strong ef
fort to extend I he .Micriiian biil lolho
next congtess.iiiKil election, but found it
impossible to secure txeci;t;ve approval
for a date later than that mentioned. In
fact this date, October, ls'.'4, is a compro
mise within a compromise' July, 1K.U,
and January 1,- 1"'J'. It is understood that
the treasury department took the tositiou
that it would be impossible to preserve the
gold and silver parity without bondsif the
Sherman law siiouid remain in force more
than a year longer.
How They View It in the House.
The terms of the proposed compromise
were the subject of a great deal of dis
cussion in the house. The Democratic
leaders express general confidence in the
bill and seem to feel certain that it will
find favor with both wings of the party in
the lower house. The ultra silver Demo
crats of the liouse like Bland have no
opinion to express for publication, but the
prevailing opinion is that they will con
tent themselves with voting against the
measure. The Republicans will be gov
erned largely by what their political
brethren iu the seuate do. Should the
Kepublicaus, free silver Democrats and
Populists unite in their opposition to the
terms of the compromise they could defeat
it, but this is upl anticipated.
Even though the compromise bill tie
brought in to-day there is little prospect
of concluding the consideration of the
question before the latter part of the week.
Jones of Nevada, who has spoken already
on three different days, will require sev
eral more days to conclude his remarks.
Teller also has on hand a speech which he
begun two or three weeks since, which be
would like an opportunity to complete.
There are others of the silver advocates
wno are similarly situated. They will be
given an opportunity to present the mat
The Congressional Summary.
Washington, Oct. 23. The senate Satur
day passed a house joint resolution dis
posing for charitable purposes of funds of
the Mormon church now in the hands of
the receiver. Peffer completed his free sil
ver speech and Jones of Nevada continued
bis. Voorhees asked him to yield for an
executive session, and Jones agreed, say-
iug his speech would require three or four
days. After executive session the seuate
took recess until 10 o'clock this morning,
The house passed a bill to divide the
eastern judicial district of Michigan into
northern and southern divisions. TheMc
Garrahan bill was withdrawn owing to
the absence of a quorum, which also pre
vented the passage of the printing bill
which was reported to the house from
committee of the whole.
Poor Show for Public Buildings.
Washington, Oct. 23. It is almost set
tled that there will be no public buildings
bills passed at this congress. The comp
troller of the treasury's report shows that
many buildings are far from being com
pleted and more than twenty-five ordered
in the lifty-first congress have not yet
been begun, which seems to have con
vinced the members of the committee on
public buildings and grounds that it
would be useless to get through any build
ings bill at this session.
Nominations of Postmasters.
Washington, Oct. 23. The president
has nominated the followiug postmasters:
Willia-n T. Wallace, Assumption, Ills.;

I nt DLAU AT BATTUE CREEK.
Some More of the Bodies IdentiBed
Everybody Agalust Wooley.
Battle Creek, Mich., Oct. 23. Some
more of the bodies of unfortunates who
met death in the Grand Trunk wreck have
been identified and to date the following
is a correct list: Miss A. W. Worthman,
of New York city; Mrs. Eveline A. Aid
rich, of Edwardsburg, Mich.; James G.
Worthman, 12 years old, of New York
city; James W. Beardalee, of Watkins, $1.
Y.; William W. Henry, of East Green
wich, N. Y.; Edwiu J. Magocn, Walwick.
R. I.; Mrs. Albert Bradley, Simcoe, Ont.;
Thomas R. Stringer, Port Dover, Ont.;
Frank II. Smith, Fort Plain, N. Y.; ChaS.
C. Van Dusen, Sprout Brook. N. Y.; Mrs.
Charles C. Van Dusen, Sprout Brook, N.
Y.; Thomas A. McGarvey, London, Oat.
A list of the injured who have gone to
their homes is: John C. Stewart, wife
and daughters, of Dalton, Ills.; T. J. Mon
roe and George Shackleton, of Auburn, N.
Y.; J. S. Archoell, of Evanston, Ills.; W.
A. Ryeree, of Port Dover, Ont., and C. F.
Adams, of Buffalo, N. Y.
Archbell and William L. Wilson, both
of Evanstou, Ills., were supposed to be
dead and so reported, but both are alive
and only slightly wounded. They are
probably the only passengers in that car
who escaped. Another victim 'has been
found W. Williams, of Ontario, Canada.
He was taken to a private house badly in
jured in the back.
Albert H. Bradley, of Toronto, Ont., an
other of the injured, is dead. He was
cashier in the Bank of Commerce in that
city and his demise swells the number of
deaths to twenty-eight. All the other in
jured are doing well except Mrs. Henry
Vanee, who will probably die. There are
now fourteen unidentified bodies, but it is
known that Mrs. A. K. Warner, of Brock
port, N. Y., and Mrs. J. Wood, of Odessa,
X. Y., are among the number.
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi
neers hustled until they found a bonds
man for Wooley, and lie has been released.
Public setitiment is very strong agaiust
him and railway men attribute the horror
to his inexplicable conductor. Conductor
John Burke, of the wrecked train, puts
the entire blame on Wooley. Burke had
a close call for his own life and is severely
hurt. He is very positive the fault lays
with Wooley. -

James, the anarchistic litterateur, was in
terviewed on the dispatch from NVw York
alwut a prohibited meeting of anarchists
Leing held iu Chicago. He said it was
held, but not to organize destructive
agencies. Its purpose was to improve the
system of communication between dif

was accomplished. Said James: ""No, Car

it. Major McClaughrey told Mr. Holmes
that public meetings would be allowed,
but secret meeting- would not be; but we
wanted a secret meeting and we had it.
"It is not true that Prince Kr.npotkin was

neither was Mrs. Parsons there, but she
was too well known to the police and re

Cleveland Continues to Favor Uncondi
tional Kepcal, as Does His Cabinet.
A man high iu the counsel of the ad
ministration said: "The president ad
heres to the p'osition that the purchasing
j clause of the Shermau law should be uo
( conditionally repealed. The lower house
oi congress voteu lor tue repeal by an over
whelming majority. The majority in the
senate are iu favor of unconditional repeal
and the sentiment of the country demands
the passage of the pending bill. It is not
true that Secretary Carlisle is or has been
in favor of the compromise which was sub
scribed to by a number of senators. The
other members of the cabinet are opposed
to that measure."
It is not expected that the compromise
bill will reach the house, under the most
favorable circumstances, until the latter
end of the week. Nosort of doubt seems to
exist about passage of the bill in the
house. It will pass, and pass with expedi
tion, any compromise that goes through
the seuate. There has been nothing
further done iu the seuate in the way ot
getting additional supporters to the pro
posed compromise, but it is the intention
of .the leaders of the movement to push
the matter at once and obtain sufficient
signers to secure favorable action. It is
t heir hope to obtain the consent by tele
gram to have the names of some of the
absentjes attached to the pledge.
