GANS & I¶LEIN WILL PUSH IT10 A VOTE. Voorhees Indioates That Two Weeks More of Debate Will Be Allowed. Then the Senate Will Bit All the Day and Part of the Night. Doees Not Think Much of the Faulkeer Compromise Amendment-It Was Introducedo Thursday. WarnnorTow, Sept. 14.-Voorhees said to a representative of the Associated press to day that he was still deter mined to press the renal bill to as early a conclusion as possible. "If, however, it is neceesary," be said, "to observe the courtesies required by the tradition and rales of the senate, and I rosily believe by showing due regard to these points we shall be able to make Rreater progress than if we violated them. Senators who oppose the bill most soon come to see that we have been aeting with exceptional liberality, and I am sure that sort of condunet will have its efeot upon them. There is endoubtedly scope yet left for onesiderable legitimate debate, and there is no means, If there were a disposi tion, of pressing the question to a vote be fore every senator hae had an oppo.tunity to say what he may wish to say. We have not really consomed as much time in the disomaston of this question as the country seems to think. and I have every reason to believe we shall be able to reach a vote in a eomparatively short time." Pressed to any how long that time would be, he named two weeks as the limit of debate. After that, if peechb-making were continued, it would indicate a purpose to filibuster, and he did not belteve tactics for simple delay could long be pursued; nor did he think there would be any dispositioe among opponents of repeal, aside possibly from senators of the silver prodaolag states, to unnecesearily coasame the time of the senate, and those senators soald not expect to continue the contest long without the assistrnoe of senatores from other see tions of the country. Replying to a question as to how he ex pected to bring tote matter to a close, Voor hees snid with legitimate speech-making out of the way, the question weould soon resolve itself into one of physiesi endur ance, and he expected soon to ask the sen ate to hold longse daily sessions, and indr ed to continue them into the night. tHe thbonaht this course would be justified after this week, and would more in this direo tion and with this spoeifle end in view within the next three or four days. Asked what he thought would be the dis position of the senate to compromise on the line of the Faulkner amendmeut, Voorhees replied that he did not believe there wonuld be any amendment of the bill, and he was of the oi iuion that the silver men would show greater strength in the vote in oppo eition to the st'alght repeal bill than upon any other proposition which could be brought before the senate in connection with present legislation. THE FAU.LKNER AMENIDMENT. Offered In the Senate by the Author IDanilel's Cpeech. WASrroGTON, Sept. 14.-In the senate to day Faulkner, of West Virginia. offered his amendment to the repeal bill providing for the coinage of silver bullion now in the treasury and the monthly purchase there after of enough silver to coin three million silver dollars, which, together with all the silver dollars before coined, to be legal tendors. The reaen hbill was then taken up and DIniel, of Vi-ginia, took the floor in oppo sition. Daniel said he would attempt to demonstrate, as he was confident he could, that the world-aide monetary convulsion is due to three principal csaues: First, en enormous increase of debt; second, the continuous unprecedented : all of prices for over a quarter of a cento y; third, contem rornneons bmoetallie base of credit at the dictation at European money kings. SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING. The City Treasurer's tlond and tlhe Jordan Mlatter. A special meeting of the city council was held last night to consider the report of the auditing committee on the amount of money which Treclurer Garrett had in the First National bank at the time of the ens pension. Chairman Hanley, of the audit ing committee, reported that at the request of the mayor he had looked into the mat ter, and found that at the date of anspen aion there was on der omit in the First Na tional $3,581.14. "The balance of the city's funds," the rep:ort stat d, "are sa$is feetorily accounted for." It was recom mended that the city attorney beinstruoted to take necessaey eteps to recover the amount tied u, front the teannsrer's fo mer bondsmen, IS. C. Ahbyr. E. W. Knight, A. M. Holter and Dan Floweree. They were on the treacurer's bond at the time of the bank uenrension. The repot was ndoptos . It is undo-stood that the pro reedinig were hl:d at the instance of one of the bondstoen, who holds an indemnity bond from the Fi:st National, and Is anx ions to clear the matter nou by paying the amount now in the bank. The trouble between the oily and Ed ward Jordan over land taken for street purposes at Bieuton and Park avenues, was tnkoe up ano ain at the special meeting and finally adjusted. Jordan mrde a iroposl tion reoently to take $1,500 in, cash, or $1.800 in wanrauts. The councll at its lest regular meeting oiTeled Jordan $1l,00 in cash. to be raid on Jan. 1. Jordan, it was generally supposed, seepcted. Last night his attorney, Wm. Wallace. Jr., told the council that Jo-dan had evidently misun derstood the city's offer. He now wanted the $1,500 cash. or an $1,800 warrant. After consultation it was ..citded to give Joridan an $1,800 warrant, whiob will be offered for sale, nn;l any surplus over $1.500 received will be returned to the eity. Thiq settles a dis; ate which has been going on for six yea e. A CURIOUS C()MPI'IICATION. In Whloh Are rlvrtoed antso Chlaesle i California.

Mit. MANTLE'S OPINION. I Hlays the sentiments Agasest Free lil ver Kept Hlln Out the easate. Hoo, Lee Mautle has returned from Washington and In an interview in the Anaconda Standard yesterday, is regard to the action of the eamate in refusing to ad mit him, said: "T'here is no doubt in the world that the silver question played an important part in the vote on seating the three senaterial appoatees, List spring the sentiment in farevor of seating was over whelming. A majority was favorable to the committee report in line with prees dents established. I Aind on mr return to Washington, and especially as the silver question developed in interest end the feel ing became intense, that a number of sena tors who had before been in favor of seat ing began to Obange their views and ex preised themselves as doubtful about the propriety of eating the appointees. It is generally understood and freely talked of among silver senators that the silver ques tion defeated use. here was some politics brought into the question at the vey last moment, induced by a rumor which sld denly appeared in circulation that a meet ing of the legislature of Montana would be called and a democratic senator elected. I am inclined to think the rumor may have effeted a few votes. The change of front of Gorman and Voorhees on the second vote was a surprise to everybody and was the subjeet of a great deal of comment among the senators, because no one was more prreoenanced in favor of seating then Voorhees, while Gorman, as far back as last winter, while tIhe legislature was in session, advised that unless a senator was eleeted the governor's appointee would be seated. He was always understood to be in farevor of it, and so expressed himself to Senator Beckwith, of Wyoming. Of coure, the ehange of these two votes de feated us. We had made enough gains to inasure seating after the first vote had Gor man and Voorhees not changed. Last spring, sad even after the extra session was first eonvened, there was an over whelming sentiment In favor of seating, but as the silver question progressed and it was seen that the vote would be close, the orpositieo began to gain strength. Sens tor Hoar, who theugh opposed to free sil ver, was still in favor of seating the ap pointees, gave expression to the sentiment that men were being aetuated by the silver question rather than constitutional grounds and was afraid that the senators were not influenced by the constitution so mush as the fear that the appointees it seated might vote certain ways on some questions." ON A SERIOUS CHARGE. An nsnreane Agent In .atte Arrested on the Charge of Embezslemeat. W. J. Crittendea, an insurance agent of Butte, has been arrested on two different charges of embezzlement preferred against him by special agent of some of the com panies he represents. He had a preliminary hearing but walved trial and was bonnd over to the district court under $1,000 bond in each ease. He succeeded in fuarishing bail in one ease but is still rustling for bonds in the other case. The first arrest was made upen complaint of Leslie A. W ight, special sagent for the Scottish Union & National Insurance company of Edin burgh, from whlohb e is accused of having embezzled 31,095.37. The second arrest was made on complaint of John Anderson, representing tte Phoenix of London. In this case the alleged embrezzlement is $1, 132.20. A third warrant has been issued for his arrest upon complaint of Leslie A. Wright. who also represents the Granite State Insurance company, the shortage in this case being $593.61. Special agents of five other companies say they will have him arrested in their turn on the same charge; the Guardian, of London, represeuted by It. A. Luke, of lelens, for some $500; the Palatine for $1,000; the American, of New York, for $165; the ]'itish-American for $125. and the 'Irnae Atlantic for about $500. Tihe total alleged embezzlement of Crittenden from the dif ferent companies is nearly $5,500. The agents claim that he has been islaing pol icies for some months and collecting the premiums without making a return to the general agents. to whom he made the rep resentations that times were so hard that the people eonld not pay, upon which rep reseutation the general agents made good the amounts to the companies for the pur pose of acoommodating the peopleof Butte. However, when that condition did not im prove they came to the city to investigate, and they claim that Crittenden had col lected all premiums and appropriated the money. KEEP'INiG DOWN tXPENSES. khe Judges Are in Accord With the County Commissioners. The boards of county commissioeners a few days ago addressed to JudgesaHunt and Buack of the distriot court, a letter advising enoonomy in the matter of jury expenses. The judges replied yesterday as follows to the commisSloners: "Your eommnnieation in reference to keeping down the expense of juries in' the distriot court has received our oareful eon sideration. We shall co-operate with you most earnestly. appreelating as we do the great necessity at the p-esent time of rigid economy in the administration of all busll seas, public as well as private. To this end we have decided not to call Juries for the trial of evill cases until the nrst Mon day in November. At that time we shall carefully impress upon attorneys and liti gants that all cases eat for jury trial will be disposed of with all possible despatch." TELEGRAPHIC BREVITIES.

Partisan Warfare in the House Over the Federal Election Laws. Republicans Resort to Filibuster ing and Thwart Transaction of Business. But thie End of Interfereneo In Stlte Eletions by Wedsera Deputies Is Not Distant. WearnaotoN. Sept. 14.-Open war began is the boose to.day. Partisan hostilities were inaugurated over the Tucker bill to repeal the existing federal election laws. It became apparent at the outset that the republican members would fight the pro position to repeal the existing election laws to the bitter end. Burrows, of Mieliguan, led In the filibustering movement. He de clared, ia jastifieation of his scorse, that a measure so sweeping as the Tueker bill, driving the natlonal government out of states and leaving no one on guard at the polls to prevent fraud and corruption in congressional and presldential eleetlons, should have no statue In the house until the democrats produced their own quorum. Furthermore. the leaders deelare that once it gets into the areas of debate they will resist its paseage with every expedient known to parliamentary law. In the flibustering fight to-day they demonstrated their ability to block matters and deadlook the house until a quorum of democratic members was produced. By their actions and words to-day it is under stood they are in desperate earnest and the present elettion laws will only be repealed after a hard fought, exciting and bitterly contested struggle. They won first blood to-day by forcing a resolution revoking all leaves of absence and summoning absentees by telegraph to Washington. Some administration democrats, led by Gen. Tracey, of New York. knowing the White house opposition to the present con sideratioa of this bill or any other bill in the house which may complicate the fight In the senate for unconditional repeal, acted with the republicans to-day. This angered the silver democrats in the house, especaltly southern men, who are particularly inter ested la the passage of the Touker bill, be yond measure. It is claimed to-nlaht that the reosident did not ceauntenance this ooarse on the part of his recognized lieu tenants in the house. If this is true they will probably be promptly colled off and their iosition in the futa e refleoting that of the administration will show a change of sentiment at theotherend of the avenue. CHIM~SE EXCLU5IO 4. The Foreign Affairs Committee Discusses the EveretS Bill. WASHINGTON, Sept. 14.-The sub-commit tee of the foreign affairs committee of the house held a meetian to-night at the resi denes of Chairman McCreary to consider the Everett bill for extension of the limit of time allowed for Chinese to register un til 8ept: 1, 1891. With practical unanimity the sub-committee eereed to perf.ot the law where It Is legally defective, to reduce the time limit to six months, and to defin itely define the term "Chinese laborer." Representive Geary, of California in sisted on a provision requiring the photo graph of all Chinamen who registered un der the law or some other absolute means of identifylig those who registered, in order to prevent the use of their certificates bly others. Other members of the sob-com mittee were ai favor of rermitting the secretary of the treasury to make regulations for identification as under the present law. Geary found himself In a hopeless minority, but declares that nothing less than some abolute means of identification would be acceptable to the Pacl'e o oast, and although he has not de cided whether to pursue it, it ti evident that he intends tn fl:ht the bill as agreed upon by the sub-committee to-night, both in the full cornmittee and in the house.

RIO JANEIRO BOMBARDED The Brazilian RebRl Fleet Maoks a Demonstration BDofro the Capital. Only a Few Stray Shells Roach the City and Do f3mall Damagea Warships Can't 0 rt Out to nea and Have About Exhilaualed Their Nul plles- Torpedolets Thwarted. I~ITENON ATrMa, Sept. 14. - Detnetohes have been received here from Rlio which give some idea of the bomba•dment which has taken place in the bay. The fasts as they reach here are as follows: The rebel ships, Aquidaban, ltepabilea and Trajano, yesterday made an attempt to land ioldiere and marines at Gamboe, in the bay of Rio. 'I he insurgents' ships are reported to have used only small rapid fre cane in firing on Gamboa, and their fie Is supoeed to have been intended more for the purpose of cov. ering the landing of the insurgent forces than as a regular bombardment. l'he rebels, it is added, had taken prisoner the officers of the gunboat Allunea, and as this message was sent the insurgents were Aring in the direction of the arsenal with the ex pertation of blowing it up. The guns on the Aquidaban thundered forth at long range, for toe rebels were not foolish enough to engage the forts, and the latter replied to the fire of the war veesels without apparent damage. At night there was a period of calm, but hostilities were expected to be resumed in the morning, un less some aadesetanding could be arrived at between the rebels and the government. There are people who believed the rebel ships would be only too glad to put to sea, but the contrlcted entranee to Rio bay, with Bngar Loaf fort on the left and Fort Santa Cruz on the right, is a danger.e. pioe for them to try to pase. The inser gRent fired a few bhots at the forts, but did not engago them in the true sense. Bounds of the lrmng reaching the city oansed alarm among the people. The loss of life, no far as known. it only one. A woman residing near the arsenal was killed throngh falling a brick. Both sides seemed to know little Sabout handling modern ship's artillery, At the rate things rre going the warshipe will have to surrender for lack of ammuni tion and provisions. Fort Lago was also treated to a few shells by the rebels, but Fort Santa Cruz was the object of most of the rebels' attention. Fort Eleaza did most of the replying to the bombardment and the attempted landing at Camboa, but there is no record of the warships having suffered any damage. from shot or esell. Rio itself was not bombarded. A few stray shots fell in the city, the result of bad warkmanship. but a no great damage wees done. No doubt many pe-ple on shore are in esympathy with the Insurgents, for the leatter seem able to keep posted concerning all doings ashore. A few nights ago an attempt wae made by a small steamer with some government army and navy ofi~ers on board to creep up to the ironelaus. They had a torpedo boom rigged out ahead and were steering quietly up to an apparently sleeplng iron clads, when the search lights were turned a on, and a second or so later a hail of ma chine gun ballets were flying. Happily for the torpedolste the aim of the rebel sailors was very bad, and the tug seems to have got away with all safe on board. AS TO SECTION 21.

The local land ofice is in receipt of a do oision by the commissioner of the general land oilloe, involving land in section 21, near the Northern PaYeld depot. There are two oases, one in which James U. San ders Is the homestead claimant, and the other iarepta Vanders is the claimant. T' H. Kleinsebmidt and others filed a mineral application on the land in 1880 and 1881. The Northern Pacific railroad protested against allowing the entries, alleging it be longed to them under their grant. In 1888 James U. Sanders entered 160 sores as a homestead, and 8arepta eanders did the same on another quarter section. The mineral alplitonts and the Northern Pa cfie railroad both protested against the en tries, and at the hearing held in 1892 the local land otcefl decided in favor of the Sanders' entries. This decision the com missioner has upheld. As the land is quite valuable the ease will probably go before the secretary of the interior. The local lfice is also in recelpt of a de oaiaou from the secretary of tholnterior, in. o:vring the Yellow Jacket lode claim, in untte, valued at about $290,000. John Cummings located the c.aim in 1879 and made an application for a patent .in 1881. In 1890 Edward Wegnor died a protest, al leging Cummings had not complied with the law. The local oftiers decided in favor of Cummings, the comimissioner upheld them and the decision received yesterday confirms these docisions.
