The car is sidetracked, and is moved as far us possi ble from all disturbing influences. The distinguished patient is receiving the ut most caie, and uew has a good fighting chance for his life. His temperature was unchanged todav. and. in conseouence. 1 the physicians think that this is the thir teenth day or typhoid fever. It is not pos sible to give the exact age of the disease, as his temperature was not laken daily en route from Kansas City to Aguas Calien tes; consequently the physicians aro guess ing somewhat at random as to the age of the disease, but are confident that it is at least the tentn day,aud believe it to be the thirteenth. Consul General Crittenden and Con gressman T.irsuey are in close communica tion by wire, watching for every change in Mr. Wilson's condition, but so far nothing of note is seen.

Euch was asked if he desired to testify before the court, and if he wanted counsel to represent him. Both replied to the lit st question in the aflinnative and to the second in the negative. The officers of the court were then sworn in. Today's, proceedings were merely foimnl and pteparatory to the real business.

A cablegram re ceived last night by Sectetary Herbert from Admiral Beuham, .it Rio, states that he has transferred his Hag from the San Francisco to tho XewYoik.

Lafe Pence of Colorado Lafelie3 tlie Cuckoog, Dodgers and Straddlers on the Silver Question Tom Heed Warned Tliat He May "Need lire Votes ofrOertaiu White Metal States in Case the House Elects the Sext President. Washington. Feb. 20. The proceedings in the house today were full of exciting incidents. Mr. Bland being uuable to secure a quorum, concluded to allow the debate ou the bill to proceed, at the same time declaring that he would return to tho assault later. Two Feusational speeches followed: oae by Mr. Pence of Colorado, who denounced the Republicans for submitting to the crack of ex-Speaker Reed's whip, and warned him that if the election of president was thrown into the house inlS9t be would rue his filibustering coutse; aud the other by Mr. Fithiau of Illinois, who condemned iu the severest terms the action of his Democratic colleagues who were taking part iu the filibuster. Toward the close of the session Mr. Pence's reflections on Messrs. Ptckler and Ellis drew forth from them a statement which Mr. Pence char acterized &sy absolutely untrue. He was twice called to order and the house, by a vote, refused to allow him to proceed. It is probable that Mr. Pence's speech will be occasion of further commeut tomorrow. rUOCEEDIN'GS. Mr. Bland mado his usual motion to close debate on the seigniorage bill, -.he vole resulted 103 to 511 short of a quorum and Mr. Blauu upon the announcement, moved a call of the house. The cill developed the presence of 273 members, and Mr. Jlsd withdrew his motion to limit debate, and moved to go into committee ou the whole. The filibusters interposed no objection to this motion, as it left the debate run ning as before without limit and it was carried 190 to 0. Mr. Blaud explained his motion, by say ing that in as much as It was evident that no quorum could be .obtained today, he thougut the time could best be spent in debate. Mr. Pence of Colorado, who was speak ing wheu the filibustering began two weeks ago, took the floor to' resume his speech. The scene of the past ten days, he said, proved, if any one had ever doubted it, that just as Senator Sherman was the chief lieutenant of tbe Democratic presi dent on the money question, so in the house his lieutenant was the eminent and talented gentleman from Maine (Mr. Reed). He had wituessed"&cores of roll calls, on which all the Republicans, except four honorable and independent gentfe meu (Messrs. Sweet, Brodenck. Rowers and Hartman) had been the chief allies of the executive and the secretary of the treasury. These alone had been above the control and crack of the whip of the leader of the minority. But the Democrats, he charged, were no better ttian the Republi cans. They had juggled with silver, They had strickeu it down and notr sought to deceive their constituent s-bn thL .support of this bill. Cn the 19th a Democratic caucus had beeu held, aud the most re pentant man iu the hall was said to be the gentleman ftom Tennessee (Mr. Patter son), who lust fall took back all he had said for fifteeu years. lie acted with the administration, and, iu return, secured patronage for his district and his sttte. No man on the floor had eaten more ad ministration pie than be. Yet this man, who surrendered the convictions of a life time on that occasion, aud -tocd up, like the gentleman from Texas (Mr. Kilgore) and thanked God that ho had changed his mind and had the courage to stand by his convictions, became iu that caucus the most rampant of silver leaders, and went to the extent of pi o nosing a resolution authorizing the speaker to count a. quo rum. Mr. Pence, continuing, said that his chief objection to the bill was that the backsliders of last summer would utilize their vote upon it to cover their retreat; and deceive 'the voters. The utterances of Mr. Patterson iu the Democratic c.iucus would be made to commend him to his constituency as a silver leader. "Mr. Chanmau," said Mr. Pence, in con clusion, "I do uot suppose it would do a bit of yood, if the gentleman ftom Maine (Mr. Reed) wen- litre, forme to make an appeal to him to keep his hands off. to fold up his whip, aud to s-uspeud his man agement of his party upon this quesiuu. Although the gentleman has If ft i.is seat, I will treat some of his representatives now present as standing in hu stead, aud will make an appeal iu behalf o the Re publican members who, it seems to me, have not the courage to make the appeal for themselves. Laughter. Tbe crack of the gentleman's whip his failed to con trol four members of the Republic iu minority here; and, Mr. Chairman, iu ad dition to these four, there have been five or six of the most accomplished, well round ed, graduated and .sltppeo dodgers that ever went on record upon any vote in any house of congress. Liughter. "Cannot the geutleiuau ftom Maine(.Mr. Reed), who is interested more than any one in the iuakup of the next house, hold oil his hand it little n bile, and let the Re publicans heie from the silver-producing section of the country voice their own con victious and the convictions of their con stituents. "Mr. Chairman, I have never engaged in the role of a prophet, but I am going to do so now. The next president of the United States will be elected by the vote of the flftv-fifth house of representatives. If theie is anv one man especially mterO'st- 1 ed iu knowing what will he the answer on j the roll call of the states at that time, , probably it is the gentleman from Maine, i who today and on every occasion, is stand- j ing up here and elwhsie to be measured ' against Major McKtnley as a candidate! for president in 1S1K5. Laughter.J When i the question comes before this house, the vote of Idaho will be as big as the vote of j Pennsylvania the vote of Montana will be i as big as that of New YorK, each state . bavins oue vote. I say to him now that when the j roll call comes by states, he will rue this ' day and the last fifteeu days " hv cannot he taKe his naua on. tans of Oregon ? Why should tilts of Oregon or Pickler of South Dskota bi required to i win"! in and wind out, appear and di-ap- , penr. as his vote may be desired or uot ? Do they believe for one moment, any one 0f them, that they can deceive their Con stituents ? Let tbe gentlemen know, each of them and evervone of them, that while we are not permitted under the ruiea of j this house to bring a camera on tm: Hoor to catch the reflection of each rising vote; that while we are not permitted to carry a kodak into tbe gallery to catch tbe nret- ' in::, n ttinjr and dissppe-innc lorms of , these Cent lemeo. as uudsr the direction! At the conclusion of Mr. Hepburn's . and domination nd snggestton of tne speech, Mr. Kred declared that the itin gsntleraau from Maine, they grab their J iorage bill cauld have been brought to a i coals aud hats aud disappear from this vote lous ago if st had been property man- presence, we do not propo-e to remain aged.

What Is j a mugwump? My friend from Montana described a mugwump here last August In j poslic language. Let m? tell you iu plain j language what it is. It 3 a cross between a Democratic cuckoo und a Republic in cuckoo. Liughter aud applause. If there were no cuckoos of one kind or an other, then there would be no mugwump1'. What does it mean, Mr. Chairman, that here, on last Friday, when we came with in two votes of a quorum, aud there were nine Republicans who voted, inside of three minutes after that happened, Mr. Reed and the General Thomas Thumb of the Democracy (Mr. Tracey) the Tom ou one side aud the Tom of the other scu red away seven of those nine Rpubli cans, so that upon the next ballot, if nil who had remained should have voted, there would still not be quorum? "Mr. Chairoiau. In the minute now re maining to me, I waut to reiterate what I siid the fir-tt time I appeare.i upon this floor last August that the time is rapidly approaching from day to day wheu the producer of the south aud west must unite aud act together must be found before and after November represented by the same men." Mr. Pattetsou of Tennessee, who fol lowed Mr. Pence, said that he would not occupy much time in replying to the strictures of the latter upon his personal action. Iu his judgment personalities never did any harm unless within the lim itations of truth. He had not changed his position. .He made a speech lust summer against free coinage, and today he was still opposed to it. On that occasion ho an nounced himself iu favor of coining the seiguiorage. He denied tnat he had offered a resolution in the Democratic caucus to count a quorum. Nevertheless he supported it. lie was not one of those who would go back on the Lord's Prajer because it was indorsed by the gentlenrm from Muiue. Republican apphtuse. Proceeding, he said that while be favored the hill, he thought tbe discussion iu the houe was having and had had a disastrous effect upon the country. The fight here bad produced a state of alarm. Business men were becoming afraid of silver certificates. Secretary Carlisle had told him that, in spite of everything he could do to push these certificates out iuto the country through the sub-treasuries, they came flowiug back to the treasury. "Do you attribute this to those who have beeu tryiug to pass this bill, or to those who have been preventing its pas sage?" asked Mr. Boatner. "To those who have been preventing legislation," replied Mr. Patterson. "Still," he declared iu conclusion, "inas much as this alarm did exist, the second sectiou (providing for the coinage of the bullion in the treasury) should be stricken out, and the matter ended."' Mr. Fithiau of Illinois created much merriment by reading from the speech of Mr. Patterson in New York city last Sat urday. Mr. Fithiau said that the meeting was one of "goldbugs," and tho chairman was a goldbug. Iu New York, Mr. Pat terson said, the southern men in congress were wedded to populist financial ideas and were followiug old fogy traditions. Mr. Fithian said that if foiced to the point of inakintr a choice between New York goldbugs and western populists, tbe people of the south and west would not be slow iu choosing the lntter. New York leader ship in congress at present consisted in filbustering. It consisted in turttiug the house into a "beer garden". Laughter. "A bear garden, I mean," added Mr. Fithiau. Mr. Fithian continued: "There aro three kiuds of Democrats in this house the real Democtats, the cuckoo Demo crats, aud the Tom Reed Democrats." He said that the roll of the house dis closed the name of Tom Reed Democrats, who for the last two weeks, had blocked legislation. As between Colorado Popu lists aud Tom Reed Democrats, bo said, he would join tbe former. "As to the cuckoo Democrats," said he, "they are that class of vacillating, dodg ing, uncertain, now-you-see-him-and-now-you-don't fallows, who make speeches for silver to send to their constituents, aud then sit silent during a vote on silver the men who dodge roll ctlls." Mr. Fithiau added that the men who were blocking the seigniorage bill were known to be tho close frieuds of the ad ministration. They were known as men who hud the ear of Grover Cleveland. If a few of these men could block the seiguiorage bill, Mr. Fithian warned them that the great majority of the Dem ocrats could, with equal propriety, stay here until next summer and block the passing of appropri ition bills. Mr. Tracey of New York If you will get a quorum here to pass your bill, there will be no blocking. "When the bill for the repeal of the Slier man purchasing act was up," retorted Mr. Fithiau. "theuold men Republicans aud Democrats sang sweet songs in the ears of the silver Democrats. They said that tho seigniorage in the treasury would be coined without further enactment. Why this false pretence? Why were not the pledges kept? You never intended to do anything for silver," said he, emphatical ly, addiessiog his filibustering Democratic colleagues, "as long as you could prevent it. You never fooled me. I never believed you intended to keep faith, or in the sin cerity aud honesty of your pledge. If you are Democrats, it is your duty tp affiliate with Democrats. If you refuse, you put yourselves outside the pale of the Dotno cr.itic p trty." Applause. Mr. Blaud then made a vicious appeal to the Democrats opposing his bill to cease filibustering. He announced that tomor row morning he would move to close de bate, and everyday thereafter until the bill was brought to a vole. A Democratic caucus had decided that it should be kept before the house uutil voted up or down, and It would be. The filibusters must take the responsibility for such delay as it caused. Mr. Neill of Arkan3is supported tbe bill, aud was followed by Mr. Hepburn of Iowa, who called attention to the fact that throughout this struggle a constitutional quorum had been present, and demanding tnat they should be counted. Republican applause. Ha read the language of tho supreme court, which declared that wheu a majority was present (not voting) the house was in a position to do business. Those who refused to recOKniz this decla ration of the supreme court, he said, were the filibusters, not the gentlemen whom Mr. Pence hud just denounced. 'I de-ire to say, interjscte I Mr rickler of fcouth Dakota, rising to bis feet, ''that Mr. Pence told me be wanted to put the Democratic party in the hole, and mat he did uot intend to vote on a certain roll call, but he came slinking in. He told me he did not want the bill to pass." This statement caused something of a sensation. Mr. Pence and Mr. Ellis of Oregon rose at the same time, "And I also desire to bsar wituess," said Mr. Ellis, "that Mr. Peace told ms the same thing." Tbe members crowded about the com batants. Mr. Holburn yielded two min utes to Mr. Pence. "I want to say," said Mr. Pence, slowly and deliberately, "that Mr Pickler stntes that which is absolutely not true, and that Mr. Ellis of Oregon I mention names In order that there may be no mistake that Mr. Lilts, whose windings in and cut no man can keep track of. states that which I ii absolutely false. With neither of them did I have any sneb conversation." Mr. Pftkler Insisted loudly that be did. "If the gentleman from South Dtkct (Mr. Pickler,) replied Mr. Peuu ".viil rise j, 10 nuestiou of privilege. I will tK toe I house what I sid, and 1 will detail to the country what I have eea, and what fcorae of as have beard in the li5i live days. mde by JieK Pickler aud Elits, said i teat Le acquuieu Air. fcllLsot mafttugany i tAternent, doing nnytluog, or casting any j vote sines last Angnt "on his own hook." j Mr. Hainer ot Nebratkt cnlled Mr. j Pence to order, and, la accordance with I the rule, he was required to take his seat. The language excepted to was read, and then, upon motion, he was allowed to ex plain. He said that Derhaps the gentlemen from Nebraska did not understand whit was meant in the west by "on his own hook." "What I mean, and what I shall coutiune to mean," said he. "when a man votes on his own hook, is that ho votes what he honestly aud individually be lieves." Mr. Hainer again arose, and stid that this was nddiug insult to injury, but the speaker held that Mr. Pence was entitled to explain. Contiuuing, he said that he me mt by his expression, that a mnn threw out his own hook and his own bait, and caught his own fish without being under the domi nation of auy man, whether he came from Muiue or el-ewhere. "That is my explanation," said he defiantly. "If it doesn't suit the dignity of the house it satisfies me. I am ready now to proceed with what I wa s.tying when the geutlemau from Nebraskt (who is fuller of whisky than ideas) interrupted me." He paused. There was a good deal of indignation among the Repubhcuus at Mr. Pence's dr fiance, which was snared to some extent on the Democratic side, a-, on the motion to allow him to proceed, it score of Democrat, including Messrs. Tracey, Reilly, Gohlzier, Everrett, Warner and Lockwood roted against the motion, which was defeated. Mr. Pence sut down, and the house ad journed. THE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS. Senator Brice's Allusion to Rebel Briga dier's Creates Trouble. Washington, Feb. 20. The Democratic senatorial caucus which met this morning adjourned at the noon hour, for the senate to meet, without accomplishing anything, save an agreement to reconvene at 1 o'clock if un adjournment of the senate could be procured. At the forenoon session of the caucus there was more or less reference to an in terview with Senator Brice. published In a New York paper, iu which he was quoted as saying that the tariff bill to he present ed to the senate has been shaped by three ex-rebel brigadiers, all of whom were ideal ists, referring to Senators Jones, Mills and Vest. Mr. Vest is said to have spokeu quite sharply, in reply to this statement, and Mr. Iirice to htve replied with no less feeling. Mr. Brice said that he was not com plaining of the wool schedule, but that he objected to the general method of pro cedure, aud that he thought the party iu the senate should have been consulted iu shaping the bill. While the interview with Senator Iirice was being discussed, the Ohio senator said that it was not so much a question of who made the stato meut of tue manner in which the bill was prepared as to whether it was true or not. Severul other senators concurred in this, aud declared that the criticism which Senator Brice had made of the manner of preparing tho bill had resulted iu bring ing it before the caucus, and that in that respect a great deal had been gamed by the caucus. Among the senators who, it is asserted, concurred in Senator Brice's statement to the caucus are Senators Morgan, Butler, Faulkner, Camtien and others from the south. At 5:30 o'clock p. in., the afternoon ses sion of the caucus adjourned nntil tomor row at 10 o'clock, after a continuous lour hour's session. BOUTELLE AND WILLIS. Washington. Feb, 26. The resolution introduced iu the house today by Mr. Boutelle for the recall of Mitiister Willis from Hawuii recites the antipathy that the United States has always expressed to interference by a foreign minister iu a country's domestic affairs and the pro priety of not forcing upon a weak power what wo object to from a strong power. It cites tho praiseworthy forbearance of the Hawaiian government toward Mr. Willis and the special ties of commerce aud kindred that bind the United States to these islands, and concludes that it shall be "Resolved, That it is tho sense of this house that the most sacred obligations of good faith, the highest mutual interests of the United States aud the friendly govern ment of Hawaii, tho plainest dictates of international comity and the imperative duty of avoiding turther risk of complicity iu the incitement of disorder and possible bloodshed iu Hawaii, require that the present United Stales minister to the Hawaiian government be immediately re called and superseded b- another minister who will not be hampered by lamentable incidents of the recent past, and who will be able anil willing to represent tbe ulncere desire of"lhe people of the United States to cultivate and extend tbe friendship widen has so long subsisted letween the Uuited States and Hawaii, and to constantly endeavor to advance the interests aud prosperity of both governments." CHILEA7"CLAIMS. Washington, Feb. M. As the period of six mouths allowed 'or the adjustment of claims by the Chilean claims commission nears an eud it becomes evident that a con siderable number of cases will be left un adjusted on the 19th of April.

Yesterday wms one of tho finest days for this season of the year. The bad weather for tho lust three weeks has had tendency to make business dull, but there has benn no nulTeritig or deaths on account of th blizzard, such as tho sensational report from other places claim to have taket place iu K county. The Stewart Brothers Iron cotnpsny yes terday placed tho now teel cages iu our comity j ill. Now that the weather 1 finr, General S. C. Dolde should bring his corps of young ladies and givo an exhibition in the court; house square, that being the only ptmin lnrgti enough, to hIIow the people all to at toixl. Thero has been much coumicmU' tion bUowed on the participant in Win ladies' carnival Kiren for tho benefit of tue Congregational church. Long & Reynolds will open a flrst-olas hotel iu the Hudaou building on or about? March 1.
