WILL ADJOUBN SINE DIE Besolntion Pawed by the Senate Concurred in by the Hone to Adjourn Sine Die Saturday, October SO. Ike Senate Will 2fot Act on the Tariff Bill Until After the Election The Will j of the People Will Then ' be Knows.. ; Wabhtkgtoit, D. C, October 18. The 'conference report on the bill' for the allot ment of lands in severalty to the United Peorias and Miamis in the Indian Territory was presented and agreed to. Senator Gray, in the absence of the two Connecticut senator?, presented and read a memorial of 500 citizens of Connecticut, workingrnen, wage earners, manufacturers and farmers in favor of the Mills bill and the admission of raw materials, particularly wool, salt, lumber, tin plates, etc., free of 'duty, was laid on the table with the resolu tion for a recess from next Saturday io the 19th of November, and Senator Paddock moved to amend it by making the reces3 be gin on the 27th of November and end on th9 J2th of November. Senator Allison said he had consulted sen ators on both sides of the cnamber and thought the prevailing opinion was in favor of adjournment until the first Monday in December. He understood that the senator from Georgia (Mr. Brown) would offer a resolution to that eff eot and if bo, he (Mr. Allison) would support it Senator Brown thereupon offered a reso lution for a final adjournment of this ses sion at 1 o'clook next Saturday. He said he did not believe that the passage of the tariff bill wonld be effected by a prolongation of the session. If the democrats were success ful at the coming presidential election, something like the Mills bill would be passed, and if the republicans were success ful something like the senate bill would be passed. The popular opinion on the Bubject would be known after the election. Senator Evarts spoke in favor of Senator frown's resolution, and Senator Paddock 'favored the amendment offered by him. Senator Cockrell ridiculed a remark by Senator Paddock to the effect that he and hia peode desired the passage of the senate ibill. That claim he eaid was perfectly far cical. If republican senators wanted to pass the bill before the election the demo cratic senators wonld stay with them, but it was a farce to undertake it, and the sena tor from Nebraska knew it, Senator Paddock 6aid that the primary 'trouble about the matter was that there had sot been a quorum in the house for six weeks. Senator Cockrell That does not make a particle of difference. The house has noth ing to do with the bill. Now, when the sen ate passes this bill there will be a quorum of 'the house to act on it. It is the republican senate that has to do with it. ' The presiding officer intimated that Sena tor Cockrell was not in order, and expressed the hope that the senators would co-operate with him in maintaining order. . Senator Cockrell We will do so. We will ,help you. Laughter. Do not (to Senator Paddock) trouble yourself about the house. ,The house will take care of itself; take care of the senate. Here is your responsibility, j After some further discussion by Senators .Cockrell, Paddock and Aldrich, Senator Allison said he would accept the amendment Joffered by Senator Brown. A majority of the democrats voted in the affirmative, while ja majority of the republicans voted no. There was a demand for a division, and the (chairman, after a longer pause than usual, declared the concurrent resolution adopted. , Mr. Teller offered a resolution instructing iha committee on Indian affairs, to inquire ,as to the truth of the report that the secre tory of the interior has purchased a large jnumber of wagons for the Indian service, that were manufactured with prison labor in the Btate of Tennessee. He made some re marks on the subjeot, intimating that the 'complaint was against the late commis 'sioner of Indian affairs. ; After a lively debate between Senators Teller, Bate and Cockrell, the resolution 4went over on an objection by Senator jCockrelL S The senate then took a recess for half an jhour, in the expectation of some message . from the president. The senate then resumed consideration of the tariff bill, and was addressed by Sen ator Aldrich, one of the members of the finance committee. Senator Aldrich as serted that the table concerning tariff rates in the house and senate bills, furnished by the bureau of statistics and produced some days ago by Senator Vest, was full of mis statements and errors, and entirely inaccu rate and misleading, and that the bureau officials, if they knew anything about the subject, must have known that it was. The "discussion was continued by Senators Frye, lEvarts and Teller. i Senator Cockrell replied to Senator Al drich's criticism of the tables of the bureau and said that they were perfectly correct, land had been made out under headings pre pared by himself and Mr. Eppenstein, a Prussian employe of the bureau, who had (been in the department at least since 1869, and who bad no interests directly or indi rectly in any misrepresentations. Senator Allison offered n resolution au thorizing the finance committee to continue the investigations into tariff matters, which .was laid over until to-morrow, and the sen ate then adjourned. Honse. , Wasiiixgton, D. C, October 18. Mr. Cox, F of New York, was in the chair when the house met this morning. After prayer by the chaplain, Mr. Farquhar, of New York, e and called the chair's attention to rule of the house, which directs the speaker to cause the journal to be read on the appear ance of a quorum. He was unwilling that certain members should absent themselves, while others like himself had remained here since December. There had been one or two motions to adjourn which had been treated somewhat cautiously and it was time that the house should come to some reason able arrangement as to whether membsrs houldbe parties to a political game or 'whether they should adjourn properly and in order. He believed that the speaker in the house, whatever his engagements might be elsewhere, and there was no reason for his absence on account of sickness, should preside over the skeleton house as long as the members were willing to stay to trans Act the skeleton business. He felt that it wasn't only a disgrace but an affront to the intelligence of congress to have too insig nificantly attended bodies waiting patiently the movements of the political parties. Mr. Bichardson of Tennessee, demanded the regular order, and the speaker pro tern directed the clerk to read the journal, but Mr. Farquhar objected, and eslled attention to the fact that there was no quorum "present. The speaker pro tern said that (he chair had not counted the house and couldn't tell officially whether there was a quorum pros eat or not The present occupant of the chair didn't like to rule on the question so .as to change the universal practice. The journal was then read and the speaker pro tern said that without objection the journal would stand approved. E. B. Taylor, of Ohio I object The speaker pro tern Does the gentleman offer as amendment? Jar. Taylor I do not I object The speaker pro tern The quetjifn "is oa approving the journal. . The question having been put, Mr. Taylor raised the point of no quorum. The speaker pro tern said that on examin ation be discerned that it was the duty of ibe speaker as i not the house to approve tkeioomaL .The journal was therefore ap- granting the right of way to a water com pany across am Indian reservation in Ari zona, and asked consent to non-concur in the senate amendment Agreed to. On motion of Mr. Forney, of Alabama, a resolation was adopted authorizing the com mittee on appropriations to sit during tne vacation. The speaker pro tem laid before the house the adjournment resolution of the senate. Mr. McMillan, of Tennessee, briefly re viewed the work of what he termed the present extraordinary session of congress, devoting himself especially to the consider ation of action on the tariff bill. Mr. Bayne, of Pennsylvania, in discussing the Mills bill, averred that the bill, as it passed the house, was the protection and in spiration of the sugar trust A leading dem ocrat of New York, the president of the trust, had appeared eiiher directly or indi rectly before the ways and means commit tee, and secured from that committee such protection as would enable the trust to flourish. ' Mr. Turner, of Georgia, said that the gen- tlamnn had nrohnblv fo'eotten that the statement made by him had been denied by all the gentleman who constituted the ways and means committee, and as the gentleman persisted in the statement he (Mr. Turner) would be obliged if the gentleman would state the evidence upon which he founded it Mr. Bayne rcplied that it was denied by eentlemen here that Mr. Havemeyer ap peared before the ways and means commit tee, officially, but it was admitted by mem bers of the committee that Mr. Havemyer and his attorney had conversations with them respecting tne duties on sugar. Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky The statement the gentleman has made is abso lutely untrue. That must go on record. Mr. McMillan It is a statement which cannot be substantiated in any way in the world, for it is absolutely devoid of all fact' Mr. .Bayne remarxea mai ine commitiee had consciously or unconsciously after the visit of Mr. Havemyer, changed the Mills bill so as to protect the sugar trust The original bill reported by the committee drew the line at No. 16, but it was changed as to draw the line at No. 13. The object sought by the sugar trust was to have the line drawn at No. 13, and the result of the change was to the advantage of the trust. The visit of Mr. Havemeyer and the change in the bill was coincident Mr. Turner said that the statement of the fact made by the gentleman was untrue. The change in the schedule occurred prior to the visit of Mr. Havemeyer. He charac terized as extraordinary the statement made by Mr. Blaine in Indiana the other day upon this subject. The statements, whether made by the gentleman from Pennsylvania, by by the managers of the senate bill, or by Mr. Blaine, were untrue. Mr. Bayne Consciously or unconsciously, the Mills bill promotes the sugar trust If the gentleman disclaims the intentions to promote the interest of the trust, he should amend the bill so as to conform to the sen ate bill. Mr. E. B. Taylor said that in view of the extraordinary statement of Mr. Turner, and the still more extraordinary statement of Mr. Breckenridge. in regard to a conversa tion with Mr. Havemeyer, he desired to read from the record of July 9. He quoted from a running discussion between the two Breck enridges, end Mr. McComas, of Maryland, in which he citsd, Mr. Breckenridge, of Ar kansas, as stating he had a talk with Mr. Havemeyer about the sugar refining business, and also Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky, as refusing to deny that Mr. Havemeyer had had a hearing before the ways and means committee. In our part of the country, con tinued Mr. Taylor, we do not particularly pride ourselves on being chivalrous, but we have an appreciation of what honesty and fair dealings are, and when Mr. Mills tells Mr. Blaine that the committee on ways and means had no audience with Mr. Have meyer, he tells absolute truth in words, but a (a pause) mistake in fact Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky, charged that Mr. Taylor had so read from the,record as to give a false coloring to what he (Breckenridge) had said, and remarked that that was a specimen of the fair play which the gentlemen said was admired in his part of the country. It was an ontrage on decency, as well as a violation of truth, for the gentlemen to say that Mr. Mills, when he denied the statement of Mr. Blaine, had been accurate to the letter, but false in the spirit. It was gratuitous and without foundation, and it would stick to the gentleman as all intentionally falsa statements did during the balance of his public life. The discussion between the two gentle men became heated, and many bitter things were Baid on both sides, but the dispute finally ended with mutual explanations and regrets. The senate resolution for final adjourn ment was then concurred in. The house then adjourned. A Prominent Knight Interviewed. PrrrsBUBa, Pa., October 18. W. T. Lewis, master workman of the miners national dis trict assembly, Knights of Labor, is in this city. Mr. Lewis is one of the Knights whose name has been prominently men tioned in connection with the election for general master workman of the order. In an interview he said he would noc accept the office if tendered him. "If Mr. Powderly desires it he will be re elected, but I have understood from him he would not be a candidate." "Is there any foundation for the charges that Candidate Barry has made about the order?" "Yes, there is truth in what Barry says, but it is not proper to have them published. They are truths that do not concern the public By these truths I mean the differ ences .existing between the officers, the dif ferent polices that they advocate, and so on. These are matters, however, that should be settled by the general assembly. If the or der of the Knights of Labor cannot reform itself from within, it does not occur to me that there can be reform outside or among those opposed to it It is true that the order is reduced in membership." A B03IANTIC, CASE. The Peculiar and Unexpected Ending of a Xong Iregal Contest. BrsatrsGHAM, Ala., October IS. A re markable and long legal contest of a will has just been ended in a most unexpected manner in Winston county, Ala. Twelve years ago Charges H. Baker was known as the richest man in Winston. He owned sev eral large plantations and a store, from which he supplied the small farmers for miles around. He discounted notes, and in other ways accumultsd a large fortune, a considerable portion of which was cash. Baker was then living with his second wife and two children; also three sons by a for mer wife. In the summer of 1578 Baker went to Memphis Tenn., where he always sold bis cotton and did his banking. When the yel lew fever broke out in Memphis he was caught there and could not return home on account of the rigid quarantine regulations. After the fever had been raging several weeks Baker's name one day appeared on the list of new case-, and soon afterward the family heard that he was dead. Then the widow filed for probate a will, in which he left her and her children the principal part of the fortune and made her adminis tratrix without bond. Baker's sons by bis first marriage contested the will, and ten years of bitter litigation followed, the final result being that the widow and her children secured the bulk of what property the law yers had left them. The three sons immediately secured an injunction restraining Mrs. Baker from taking charge of the property, claiming that they had secured evidence of a later will. The day after the injunction was served Charles H. Baker himself, sown very old man, appeared at the old homestead and claimed bis fortune. It seems he did not die of yellow fever, bat after be recovered, after several weeks, his reason was none. andthe past was a blank to him. He had drifted her and there as a common t-anr, finally taming a p in.' Buenos Ayras; ttoasta and andertbe care of a Spanish phyrleiaa recovered bis reason. He than worked hie way to New Orleans as a common sailor, and after many hardships reached his home. Ha confirms the claim of his son that ha had made a later will, in which fee made eeaal division of his property among hia wife and five children. SENSATIONAL. KARKIAQK.

" The Meaaerable Deadlock-Business Await ing 'the Fifty-first Congress This Bastion the longest on Hecord Washington News. Waszezbotok, D. C, October 19. To morrow at 1 o'clook the first session of the Fiftieth oongresa will end, the longest con tinued session in the history of nearly a century of congresses, having lasted 321 daa. The longest session previous was 302, days, ending September 30. Apart from the protracted but interesting discussion of the tariff question in both houses, and the unparalleled dead-lock in the consideration of the bill to refund the direct tax, the ses sion has been remarkable in several ways, put none more than in the enormous num- 'bir of measures introduced in both branches it congress. In the senata 3,641 bills and 621 joint reso lutions were presented, and the house record ran up to the unequalled figures of 11,59; bills and 220 joiot resolutions, making the grand total of 15,585 measures introduced in one session. In the senate 2,394 measures were reported back from committees and plaoed on the calendar, a much larger pro portion than in the house, where 8,305 meas ures of the total number of 11,828 introduced still slumber in the committee rooms. Among the measures of publio interest which have become laws are the following: Belating to permissible marks on mail mat ter, for the division of the Sioux reserva tion, for a conference with the south and central Aaiericrn nations, limiting the hours of letter carriers, makine Lieutenant Gen era ISheridan, general of the army, to es tablish a department ot labor, for an inter national maritime conference,'requiring the Pacific Railroad company to maintain tele graph lines, to prohibit the coming of Chinese laborers to the United States, for the establishment of rules in respect to the St. Marie and other canals, to create boards of arbitration and to settle contro versies between common carriers and their employes, to prevent the return of Chine-e laborers of this country, aid state homes for disabled soldiers, and changing the date of meeting of the elsctorial college. In the next stage, that is in conference be tween the two houses are two bills of the first importance, namely, repeating the pre emption and timber eclture laws, and pro viding a general homestead law, .and de claring a forfeiture of unearned railroad grants. Pending before the senate is the house tariff bill and the senate substi'ute. The senate passed bills to divide Dakota and to admit the southern half as a state and to aid common schools, (the Blair Bill) but they never reached the house for action. In the senate the same thing can be said of the following bills which passed the house, the fisheries retaliation bill, whose passage was recommended by the president, authorizing the issue of fractional silver certigcates; allowing the regulation, by states, of railware chartered by the United States. The following are the most important bills unacted upon in the senate calender: For admission of Montanna and Washing ton Territories, to prohibit the alcoholic liquor traffic; to declare trusts unlawful. The following measures of importance were reported from house committees and are still on the house calendar: To refund the direct tax (a vote of which will be taken early in December next) under an agree ment by which the memorable dead-Iocs over this bill was broken. For the payment of arrears of pensions; requiring the invest ment of the national bank redemption fund m circulating notes: the Pacific railroad funding bill (deba'ed but never reached the point of action) to include telegraph companies in the interstate commerce act; to promote commercial union with Canada; to incorporate the Nicaragua canal company for the organization of the territory of Okla homa, (debated but never finally voted on.; The following are important senate bills which slumber in -committee rooms: Re questing the president to open negotiations with Great Britain, looking to the annexa tion of Canada to the United States; for the free coinage of silver; to repeal the oleo margarine aot; to provide a naval reserve; the Hennepin canal bill; to reduce letter postage to 1 cent; to grant woman suffrage, and measures proposing radical changes in the government's financial policy. The following are original bouse bills, which likewise never get out of the com mittee room: To repeal the internal reve nue law, and the tobacco tax, to prohibit mailing of newspapers containing lottery advertisements, to lay a graduated income tax, for a bounty on sugar, to repeal the civil service law; for full reciprocity between the United State; and Can ada: to restrain judicial proceedings to be brought against tha Pacific railroads; to provide more efficient mail service between the United States and South Amer ica, to break ap trusts and various measures proposing changes in our pension, tariffs and financial laws. Themoet important private bill of the session were those pensioning Mrs. Logan and Mrs. Frank P. Clair, both of which be came laws, and tho bills to pexuion Mrs. Waite and Mrs. Sheridan, which passed the senate, bat were never acted upon by the house. T. V. POWDEBLY.

Two Paymasters Killed and Bobbed of $13,000 by Highwaymen. WiLKEsnABsz, Pa., October 19. A most daring murder and robbery occurred this morning, a few miles from here on the Wilkesbarrejnountain. Paymaster John B. MoClure, and Stable B033 Hugh Flanigan, of Philadelphia, and their horse were shot dead and a sum of money amounting to 12,000 in their possession, was taken by the murderers. The murdered men were on their way to pay the workmen onMoFadden's new branch of the Lehigh Valley railroad, between Mill creek and Lausann. They were riding in a bugsy through a strip of woods to the plaoe where the pay ments were to be made, when the highway men stepped out of the woods and crying "halt," they shot the horse dead and also both the paymasters. The money was in a box and was composed of gold and silver, which they took and fled for parts un known. The daring aot has caused a great excitement here, and all efforts are being made by the police, detectives and citizens to capture the villians. . The bodies of J. B.
