His Resolution Goes Over Under the
Rules Till To-Morrow.
"No Fore Bill, No Tariff," is tha Threat
of Republican Members Reed in
an Avenging Moed,
After ht Ineffectual attempt last
Saturday to lnlroduco his onlcra regulat
log tlie business of tlio session, Senator
Quay, Just boforo adjournment, gave
formal notice of his Intention to amend
tbo standing rules and orders of tho
Senate. As printed in tbo Con?nnioMtl
lltcortl tbtso proposed orders aro as fol
lows, Ordered 1. That during tha present ea-
slou of Congress the Senate will not tako
tin for consideration any legislative business
other than tbo ponding hill (II. R. 9110),
conterenco reports, general appropriation
Mils, pension bills, hills relating to the
public lands, to tbo United State courts,
to the postal service, to agriculture ana
forestry, to public buildings and Scnato or
concurrent resolution.
(h itcrett, 2. That tho consideration of all
Mils other than audi as are mentioned In
tho foregoing order Is hereby postpoued
until tho session of Congress to be bold on
the first Monday of December. 1800.
Ordered, 3. That a Toto shall be taken on
the bill (It. K. 0110) now under considera
tion In the Senate, and upon amendments
then pending, without further debate on
tho SOtli day of August, 1800, the Voting to
commence at 'J o'clock p. m. on said day
and to continue on that and subsequent
davs to tho exclusion of all other business
until tho bill and pending amendments are
finally disposed of.
Mr Quay further announced that he
would not call his resolution tip
for discussion, before Tuesday (to
inoirow). Sir. Hoar announced
lils I tcnllni to speak It the
older. lie will make an attempt to have
tLc 1 cdcral Elections bill include I In the
ntdcr, and falling that, he and ills fel
low cnntplrat'iis will do what they eta
to defeat It. Uut their efforts will be in
The adoption of this order of course
puts an end to the Force bill. It will
go over until December. No inch
measure can be forced through the Sea
ati dmlng the shott term.
Senator Quay oiTored his resolution
dutlng tbo morning hour today. It
went over under tho rules until to
morrow. It Is just dawning upon the old He
publican leaders of the Senate that Mat
thaw Stanley Quay Is a foree with which
they will hereafter have to reckon.
They have been accustomed to looking
upon blm merely as a politician a very
shrewd and skillful politician, it is true,
1 ut still a politician and nothing more,
lie has been so silent, so modest withal,
as a Senator, that the old men of hU
parly did not dream that he would ever
contest with them for supremacy In the
They were therefore, disagreeably
surprised when last week he threw
down the gauntlet to tbem. They were
t'ceply chagrined to Had when they
met In caucus that the sceptre bad
departed from them. They were both
angry and astonished when they found
themselves outvoted in the secret coun
cil of Ihe parly.
Tho truth Is, this means that the new
blood of the Senate is coming to the
fnnt, It means that the old leaders
aro relocated to retirement. It means
that hereafter Matthey Stanley Quay Is
lbs real loader of the llepubHeuna la
the K rate.
In hU present course he is shawiag
himself to be much more than a mere
pciitlriau He is displaying high quail
tics of statesmanship. He shows tha
he Is keeping ud with the procession o
the great American people. I(e tie
tlarcs that now is bo time for the
passage of mere partisan measures.
lie Insists that business mat tew be at
tended to first. He declare that the
Tariff bill is of vastly mote importance
than the Force bill, from a party pole
cf !cw, as well as from that of the
welfare of the whole country.
Again, he says that the piMa.ee of

IlARRt?BUK, Pa., Aug. 18.A gen
tleman who Is on terms of efosest inti
macy with the leaders on the Republi
can side of the IIoum, ami who came to
Harrlsburg yesterday, said last ntslit to
a reporter that Quay ami the Senators
who arc standing with him in the at
tempt io shelve the Klectlon bill for
the sake of passing the Tariff bill will
run up against an unexpected snag.
"Quay will prolwbly hive his way in
the Senate," eald this gentlemin, "but
I havo reason to believe that It the Fed
eral Elections bill doee not become a
law at this session of Congress the
Tariff bill will fail also.
"When the McKlnley bill was under
consideration In tho House a number of
the Republican members made great
concessions concerning the details in
order lo get the tariff out of the war so
that a bill regulating Federal elections
might bo passed. These members re
garded the regulation of Federal elec
tions as being of as great Importance,
from n party standpoint, as the tariff
"They still bold that view and while
they aro not talking much I am in a po
sition to say that, with tho Federal
Elections bill shelved, any tariff bill
tho Scnato may pass will meet with a
very cold reception In the House.
"A Tariff bill may como from the
Senate that will be agreed to In con
ference, with .some changos, but then
the real battle will begin. Thcro aro
between twenty and thirty Hermbllcan
In Ihe House who havo already agreed
among themselves that they will vote
with the Democrats against tho adoption
of tho confcrcnco report on tbo Tariff
bill unless tho Republican Senators
agree to pats a Federal Elections bill at
this session.
"These members will havo the quiet,
nnd perhaps open, support of brve-akcr
Recti and Representative McKlnley,
and when they show their hand Qmy s
dream of tho passago of a Tariff bill
and an early adjournment will vanish."
On tbo Insldo hero Senator Quay's
move Is regarded as good politics first,
becauso nothing is known of tho plan of
opposition outlined above, and second,
because It is well understood what his
reward Is to be. In return for his efforts
to settlo the tariff agitation the protected
manufacturers of llie State are 'o turn
in for Delimiter to a man. Thoy
will pay the Republican ciraptlgn ux
pemes and will spare no efforts to In-
I I u en ce their workmen to vi e for
Dilamaler. notwithstanding hU well
known hostility to labor.
Tho prlco is high, but the - nnu
facturers are willing to pay It. The
Indorsement of Quay and I) -lama'er by
PX-Nstfnnal Chairman 11. F. Jooci n
few days ago Is tho first move tor ard
tho fulfillment of the manufactuurs'
part of the bargain. A month ago
Jones was against Quay and Delam iter.
Other manufacturers, who stood where
he did, may be ox ported to wliee, into
line at once. Indeed, most of them
mpy bo considered as having been "In
ilnrail (he time, wheneverthey lenred
that iudupendunco would damage their
protected profits.
Ikfore leaving 1'lttsburg for Wash
ington last night Cougreasman Daliell,
In conversation with a reporter, strongly
denounced the action of Senator Quay
with reference to the Federal Elections
bill. He said the Quay resolution wae
the act of a politician and not a display
of statesmanship.
"I do not believe there l any such
cry for the speedy passage of the Tariff
bill as Mr. (J nay represents," said Mr.
Dalzell. "The fact is. Quay is out
danced in the Senate. He is not used
to the company in which he finds him
self. If the Elections bill Is defeated
the first and mast Important pledge of
the Republican party to the country will
be violated, and tho Pure Lard bill and
the other measures promised for the re
lief of Western Republicans will fail
wllh it."
1'iTTeHVHO, Aug. 18. There is high
authority for the statement that the
lead ere of the antl-Delamater Republi
cans of the State, who have beea Iyia
so low that the inapt eesioa has got
alroad tbat tby will do nothing, wilt
meet very shortly, perhaps within tea
dj'. and Itarker, Lea and Marshall
will have plenty of good company.
The meeting wilt be secret, because
those interested do not propose to give
the Quay Delamater managers a dia
gram of their plans, but the names of
those piesent will be made public and
the list will be surprising on account of
its strength.
Senator Emery, who has beea the
ereateet thorn in Pels ma tor's side, will
e tbeie. Those who are in Emery's
eonfldeww say ha will play a more im
portant part in. the campaign than any
person yet suspeeU. They say his
quiet statement that be will "endeavor
to prove the truth of the charges against
Desaanater" means a great deal more
than the loudest heart he eouid wake,
and that if he does not make hie caae
good it will only he because he is woe
fully mistakeu.

the Delamater managers is to ureal

at Hraofoad. where he ie known to
every man, woman and child, but the
aiieat would not make half the stir
oer the State a if it were made in
Philadelphia, where the headquarter
of the Delamater bureau are located.
Mr Emery doee not propose to give

Commissioner Illne returned from
New York last evening, and was in his
oflke at the District building this morn
ing. When nsked by n Cntnc reporter bj
to the latest developments regarding his
rislgnatlon he replied that he knew of
none. "I thought," he continued, "that
the President would not havo made it
later than last Saturday In naming mv
successor. The President, to relieve nil
anxiety about the matter, will, I think,
send In the name of my successor in n
few days," added the Commissioner.
It Is thought that President Harrison
will not later than Wednesday, perhaps
sooner, name Mr. Hlne's successor.
Nothing can bo learned definitely as to
whether Engineer Commissioner Robert
will be transferred from the Comtnls

As intimated in Tiik Ciutic the
other day, there was something rather
mysterious about tho actions of Hugh
Tumor and his prisoner, Robert O.
Ilullls.ooth of whom wore supposed to
have been well on their way to the
Mcitnon stronghold by this time. On
Saturday night about 7 o'clock llullb,
accompanied by his attorney, Mr.
ltarkor, drove up to a boarding-house
In the northwestern part of the city.
They were all covered with dust anl
the horse save evidence of havinj
had a hard drive of It.
According to RulIIs' own story he
has been towed around in a very pe
culiar manner since having been placed
in Ihe custody of Hugh Turner last
Wednesday. Re was flrst locked up In
the Sixth Precinct, then taken from
the! a to Alexundiia, brought bask In a
clrxcd carriage to the Fourth Precinct
and then to Rockvllle. Md.. where he
was locked up and left there by Turner.
The latter then returned to this city
for thepurpoeeof ralslngunough money
wllh which to pay the expenses of him
self and bis prisoner to Salt Lake City.
The Department of Justice, however,
declined to advance the required
amount. While Turner was here the
district attorney at Rockvllle advised
the Jailer there to let his prisoner go, as
he had no authority to hold him longer.
llullls was allowed to go and immedi
ately took to the woods where he re
mained in hiding until lie could get In
formation to his attorney, who immedi
ately went to the biding place and
brought him here as previously stated.
At first it was thought advisable to
have blm go immediately to New York,
but his attorney and friends advised
him to remain here ami go before
Judge lllngham under the habtat eorput
and right it out.
He thinks the manner In which he
has been carried around only verities
the fact that Turner, Francis and Ilolll
day are uot so anxious to have him In
Utah as they are to force him to di
vulge to them his patent beator. He
feels, and bis attorney has so advised
him, that he can bring charges of con

president of the society, to ascertain
with what success the new movement la
In n reply to a request for some In
formation regarding tho society Miss
Johnson said:
"Within the last three days we have
received earnest letters from Louisiana,
Kentucky. South Dakota, Maryland anil
New York, nsklng for circulars and tbo
privilege of working for the associa
tion. I find It Impossible to think of
our purpose as anything but accom
plished, for it Is simply tbo response to
a natural law, 'the demand creates the
supply, nnd Wlmodaughsts is nn an
swer to tho prophecy made by the fact
of tbat magnificent assemblage at the
first International council of women
ever held hero two years ago. lly that
Washington was designated as tho
permanent placo for councils of women
which falls in line with tho very no
ticeable tendency of organizations of
all kinds and classes to drift toward the
Capital for council. Another evidence
that it Is the lime and place is tbat we
have never yot found one person who
has opposed or o Hired an objection that
has not been speedily removed bv eluci
dation of the necessities and possibilities
and replaced by enthusiastic Interest."
"What has been your experience In
presenting the subject to the different

"Most varied and Interesting. Some
would like to take stock, but fear It

will welcome and protect all, whatever
their special belief or unbelief."
"Others express great anxiety as to

"Others (the would-be practical) want

Mowtrbai.. Aug. 18. The Dominion
Caitridge Company, vrhose head
quarters are In this city, recently
applied through Its New York agents
to Washington for a permit to ship
goods In bond to Mexico. The Depart
n ent has replied refuting to grant tbe
permit nn the ground that it wae not
disposed to cxlpml the landing privi
leges for Canadian goods that they were
offering to other countries. It was
rumored last night that this action of
the American authorities foreshadowed
a general action against Canadian bowl
ing privilege, ami there is great un
easiness in railway citcles.

IkrFAi.o, X. Y., Aug. ll-The
New York Central ami lis connections
are running their passenger trains
through this morning on a fair approxi
mation to schedule time, a fact which
it is argued, is due largely to the moder
ation of the men who are out on strike.
ltut while the paMenger traltic re
mains practically uninterrupted, the
freight situation at this point has grown
much more serious. Kvcry siding has
Its complement of freight cart, mainly
loaded with "perishable" freight, and
even the Lake Shore side tracks to a
distance of twenty mites out are packed
with standing, abandoned trains. He
tween Kat Buffalo nnd Idlewood, a
very Ions: "dressed beef" train lies
motionless, Its content, to say the
least, not improved by tbe delay.
There is no stilke as yet on the Like
Shoro road, but the snitching of freight
forthat road Is all done In the Central
yards, ami they are not only already glut-
tiu wiui ireigut uui nave no swiicnmen.
So the management has been obliged to
tlnd other places to store its accumula
tions and has utilized ever avail ible
An attempt will lie nude In move
some of ihe frtlelit at Kast Uuffalo to
day. "We have got nu'ii enough,
tin ua.li they are green, " said one of the
vaidmen Mils morning, "and will put
i Ik in to work If the strikers will let
tbem do anything. We have got to
move the slulT la the lUtt Uuffalo yards,
tiny are full How and whatever else
ctinci bar got to He outside till we
can make room for It in the yards."
A rumor was current this moraine:
that Ihe Lehigh Valley men hail gone
out, but this entirely lacks continua
tion. It was learned tbat the rumor
atose from the threat of the switchmen
to go out if the road moved Central
freight. Dn Saturday night a Central
4M'k'Tln,was run in on the Lehigh
tracks aatftke switchmen declared they
would strike If It was uot sent luck
where it belonged. Tbe road acceded
to Ibis rtiiuest and sent thu Central
trslu back.
of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid Asso
ciation was seen this mornlug. lie wsi
as conservative as ever, but was evi
dently smarting under the Insolent
treatment he had retelved yesterday at
Ihe hands of Superintendent Harrows.
Mr. Sweeney said. "The strike Is a
question of endurance between tbe men
sr.il tbe company, and I do not think
that Ihe men will be the flrst to give In,
as they are in tbe right la the matter.
TheKnightsof tabor strike was a sep
arate stfalr, the strike of our order the
railroad authorities precipitated upon
themselves by ordering our member
to take the places of strikers, which
tbey declined to do. If they had con
sented and taken the places of the
brother switchmen out on a strike. I
should have expelled them from our
order as soon as their actions had been
made known to me. It l one of the
iron clad rules of our order, that
our men shall uot take tbe places of
strikers. The men knew this snd de
clined to obey orders, whereupon they
were dischsrged. The road declined
to reinstate them and. afterward, yield
ing to a universal feeling of indignation,
the membeis of our association all
aiiuck work. Tbey were badly treated,
snd are in the light. I saw Mr. Hur
rows yesterdsy and he declined lo have
anything to say to me as representative
of the men. fie was
snd is not the kind of a man to hold
such a posit km. lie is aa overbearing,
insulting fellow, aad tbe very last sort
of an individual to be able to handle
mf s decently. Mr. Burrows' treatment
of bis men is directly responsible fur
the present trouble. There may be
further trouble for the Central Hsilroad
laths way of labor ditMcuities unless
matters are soon adjusted."
Mr. Sweeney was shown the dis
patch from Terse Haute. lad , stating
that Grand Vaster Swgeat of the Ftre
men's Brotherhood and Urarnl Chief
Howard of the Conductors' Brother
hood had left for Buifsio to consider
the strike- snd was asked If tha Fed

Kobert Ptnkerton said this morning
that a personal examination of hi men
showed that in every case they hail been
atoned wtore they nreii, and in some
cases filed upon. Mr. Itlseell said that
on the part of road the men cautioned
not to use their weapons unless so )
lutely necessary.
To day is going by very iiuietly ami
Ihe evcltement seems to have simmered
down. The road has moved tea freight
trains to the West nut of (he West Al

Chief Millard of the police received
a letter from Mr. llisevll this morning.
In which he claimed the PlnkerUm men
only fired in self defense, but that the
road will warn them against the hasty
use nf the guns.
