There was a big crowd of people around the Fifth Avenue hotel, Jew v,t rlr in lha evening of the 6th waiting to see Judge Thurman start for the meeting at Madison Square, judge stayed in his room so long , wonder what the matter. When he finally appeared he seemed quite weak. He leaned heavily upon Chairman Barnum and his son Allen W., and trembled visibly. His body seemed to lean to the right and his right leg dragged a little, as if afflicted with rheumatism He seemed too weak or sick to make an effort to acknowledge the vociferous cheering of the multi tude. He was quickly helped into a carriage with Messrs. Brioe, Barnum and Allen W. Thurman and the start for the garden was made. Carriages con taining distinguished democrats fol fowed. The sjiort trip to the gar.len was a triumphal tour, the streets being lined with applauding crowds. MoiliKon Snnare '-Tardea held a mighty swarm of people, aud when its holding wmiieitr ubs exhausted it served as a vnter to nmnv thousands who were ad dressed by seakers upon stands at each corner of the building. The interior of i.e garden was profusely decorated with Amtriean colors. At 8 o'clock Calvin S. Price, chairman of the national campaign committee, called the lneetiiiL' to order and pre sented Hon.

While Flower was still speaking the crowd near the Madi son Square entrance begun to cheer, drowning the voices of the speakers as they announced the coining of Thurman. As be made Iu'b way to the platform the cheers were redoubled, bandanas were waived and the band struck up "Hail to the Chief Flower, who had not at tempted to finish his speech, at once in troduced Thurman, saying: "Fellow cit izens, I have the honor to introduce the old Iioman, Allen G.

Unanimous consent had len given yes terday that at 1 o'clock the vote should be taken on the question, ' Shall the bill pass?" There being some questions as to the terms of the agreement, the reiH.rt in the Itecord was read. Mr. Gorman excused himself pn the ground that he was not present when the agree ment was made, and was not ajvare of it He now moved that the bill and the r,.;,l,. .it's message le referred to the coniiniiiittee.on foreign relations.

The question was then telten on tlie passage of the bill, and the result was yeas 37, nays 3. Mr. Blair asked the presiding officer whether a motion to reconsider the vote was in order, and on being informed that it was, he submitted that motion. He said that if it were reconsidered he would move an amendment to tire bill, providing that the act shall not take ef fect until the expiration of sixty days after ite passage unless tlie penum; The gen court re- followed. npou it, bandanas and flags were waved r(1i shall i.fi rejected by China within i .i . i i i i j -- r . 1-.,. that time, bnt to take ettect immediately and ther crowd cheered and cheered again, drowning into mnffled sounds the strcins of the band. The cheering con tinued for fully five minutes and then in a voice so feeble that only those within a few feet of him could tell except by the motion of his liw that he was speak ing, he said: "Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentle men: It has been said by the republi can papers since 1 was nominated for the vice presidency that Allen O. Thur man is an old, frail, decrepit and broken down man. l do not know that i should reply to this, although I well know that on siieh reiertion. Mr. Gorman referred to his motion to comjnit the bill, and said that he had made that motion in consideration that the bill had come before the senate, without doubt, under misapprehension. Mr. Stewart opjiosed the motion to re consider, anil said the more he read Denby's dispatches the more he felt that the bill was proper. Mr. Blair advocated his motion. He argued that the treaty would, if ratified by China, afford all the remedy which the bill was designed to give. Unless I am in no condition to-night to speak i tne rfa ,mr,)08e of the lull was to des- toanAnmensa nndVnCe such as this, fiowever, I want to spX'k and in spite of illness I am almost indnVed to make the attempt.

A call of the senate having shown troy the treaty, a delay of sixty days ought to be satisfactory to everybody. So far as was known the Chinese gov ernment was acting in good faith. At the close of the discussion Mr. Tel ler moved to lay on the table Mr. Blair's motion to reconsider. A vote was taken to do so. Colonel Brice ami Flower stepped forward and each taking an arm assisted him back from the speakers' stand. Ho was almost fainting and for a few minutes was too sick to be re moved from the bnilding. When ho had recovered sufficiently Judge Thur man was taken in a carriage direct to the ladies' entrance of the Fifth Avenue hotel, accompanied by Messrs. Brice and Barnum and his son Allen W. Thnr man. The judge was conducted to his room and was attended by Dr. Goldth waite, the hotel physician. The latter applied remedies and later it was said that the distinguished patient would be all right in an hour or two. Dr. Goldthwaite said that the judge had been attacked with cholera morbus at 3 o'clock in the afternoon and he had advised his patient to not exert himself by attending the meeting. But Judge Thurman insisted upon going to Madi son Square garden notwithstanding the advice of his physician. Burnum came out of Thnrman's apartments in a little while and though hf? was seriously wor ried announced that Thurman would be all right in a couple of hours. In the sick room remained Mr. Brice, Allen G. Thurman, jr., and the physician. CANADA'S CABISET. The first meeting of the cabinet since President Cleveland laid hiB retaliatory message before congress was held on the 4th. The British government cabled to Sir John McDonald requesting him to fur nish a full text of the extent and charac ter of the commercial relations which had existed between the United States and Canada since the confederation ol the British North American provinces also a clear statement of the remon strances which had been made by the united States against Canada for alleged Irregularities in regard to United States citizens, their rights conceded by the treaty as well as full explanation as to the probable effect on the dominion of the proposed retaliatory measures if carried out This information was laid before the cabinet yesterday. On most reliable authority it is learned that in reqneRting this informa tion Salisbury enjoined the dominion Rovernment to exerciso the utmost cau tion in every movement just now when an irregular step might strengthen the feeling of hostility which lias lieon raised toward the dominion. Salisbnry has spoken pretty plainly to Sir John and tho attitude he has assumed has not been very cordially received by the members of the government Tlie members of the cabinet were by no means a unit in endorsing the remedies which Sir John proposed, it is stated a serious rupture in the cabinet is not improbable over the interference of the home government tlie presence of forty-four senators, Mr. Joiuif .Arkunsas moved to adjourn. Mr. Blair As" the vote just taken is clearly indicative of the will of the sen ate, I do not want fo delay action, und I therefore beg to withdraw my motion to reconsider. Mr. Sherman I object A vote was taken on a motion to ad journ, and it was defeated yeas 19, nays 22. A vote was taken the second and third times on the motion to lay on the table the motion to reconsider, but each time there was a lock of a quorum, several senators taking advantage of their Wing, paired to refrain from voting. Finally the friends of the bill realized the use lessness of further attempts to end the matter, and the senate adjourned till Monday, leaving the bill passed, but a motion to reconsider its passage pending- AS INDIAN (JVTUHKAK. 1 fir destroyed the Burlington, lows- Los.
