Here tho tipeakor looked at tbo olock and
said: " Tho hour for the consideration of bills
ends at thirty-three minutes after 13 o'clock.
Tho call rests with the Commltteo on Indian
Affairs." Uule?a thoro Is a special order, one
hourovvry day Is eh en to tbo consideration of
bills designated by the Chairmen of committee-.
Each committee gets an hour for two
consecutive days, and the committees aro
called In tholr regular ordor.
Mr. l'eolof Arkansas. Chairman of the Com
mltteo on Indian Affairs, colled up a bill forthe
adjudication by tbo Court ot Claims ot the ac
counts of the West Cherokoo Indians. It car
ried J 100.000. It was tho sooond day of Its con
sideration. Tho Speaker had called Gen. Oatea
of Alubuma to lUe chair. On motion of Mr.
Poet the bill was considered In the Uouse as In
Committee of tbo W hole. Under the previous
question It wont through like a shot.
This ended tho work or the Indian Commit
tee, anil the Cbalr called tbe Committee on
MUltln. Aopno replied. lie repeated the coll.
Mr. McAdoo, the Chairman of tuat committee,
bad just come in. and was in tho House harbor
shop peeling for a shave. A trlend run In and
and shouted. "Mac, tbey'ro calling your com
mlttoe for the consideration of bills." MoAdoo
renhucfcetl nnd inn down a side aisle of tbe
House shouting. " Mr. Hpeokorl" "Mr.Mpoak
erl" Tbo bpenker pro tern, reoognlzed him,
and tho Jerxeyman nervously began to unlock
his desk. In bis excitement he got hold of a
bill which hud noier been reported to
tho IXouko. It was a (Senate bill to
perfoct the organization of tho militia
lu ihu DKtflctol Columbia. In the previous
two hours of tho Committee on Militia Inst
paring a House bill slmllnr In character hud
beou talked out of time. Mr, Blount, the par
llamentuiyfox Irom Georgia, discovered tho
nilti;!o. 'ul Mr. McAdoo tried to call up the
I Hou-oiiMnctllimia bill Instead. Mr. Blount
Iraixed the point of oider that as It had already
hud its two morning hours It took Its place on
tbo (Jiilunilar us unllnlsbod business, nnd
cmld tinteiimo no in this way. Mr. McAdoo
then li.uille.l Himself very adroitly. He moved
U.uuho 11..U-0 go Into Committee of tho Whole
lor tho purine.-or tnklne It up. The speuker
piotem. f.ild tl.iii ilid not require unanimous
lous.'iit. mid MeAdoo'a motion was carried.
f i en :ln went Miter mace was taken from
It iMilwtnl and Mr. Dockory was cnlled to pre
elilmn roniMiittoi'. Mr. McAdoo then moted
tur.t ;i:e J..u-e bill be taken for consideration
I ruin tlie uillitirliL'd business on the calendar.
Alter furthei Millttfngof tho hair or pjirlla
niomiiry law tho Mil was dually dragged beforo
tbo House. 1 egislutlon began where it left off
lu.it aprinc. '1 ho last scotlop was the one for
consideration. It was passed In committee.
But Mr. Ml-AiIoo'b troubles hud only just
begun. He was deluged with questions,
and thoro w.n evidently a strong oppo
sition to me bill. The militia of
the District of Columbia is mainly
composed of negroes. An attache: of tbe House
said that the pi oposltlon" was really a bill to
tarnish hrass bands for tbe burial ot Washing
ton negroes on nunday." Mr. MoAdoo got Into
an argument with his colleague. Mr. Buoban
an. One Is a Democrat and the other a HeDUh
llcan. Tho latter wanted to know how the bill
chanced the present law. Mr. MoAdoo replied
tbnt the inllltla to-day oonslstod largely of In
dependent companies, who had simply organ
ized themi'ohes.
"1 saw them parade on Thanksgiving Day,"
said Mi. Biic'iiiiuiin. "and It seemed to me that
the display was very creditable. The force was
(eituinly largo enough to put down any In
cipient rebellion."
Mr. McAdoo roplted: "I do not apprehend
any great disturbance hero, and my colleague
Is hi em eiui man, 1 know."
"Certainly," rotorted Mr. Buchanan, "and
tnoroforn 1 am opposed to all this brass
mounted business."
Mr. McAdoo responded that he was opposed
to It, too. "Uur btute,"he said, "as tho gen
tleman well known, bas exponded very largo
sums of money for tbo maintenance of Its
militia."
, "Yes." broke in Mr, Buchanan, "but wo ore
legislating for the Dlstrlot of Columbia, and
not for New Jersey."
The aebato toatlnued until tho Chairman
reminded Mr. MoAuoo that only five minutes
of his hour whs left.
Tun," responded tbe Jersoymnn, "I rise
L'i..?paE"7)ontur.lD,iulT. I would liko to
know wrmt there 1 before the House."
There whs great laughter. Tho Chairman
explained the status of the btll.und Mr. Mo
Adoo movod that tbe commltteo rise and re
port It to tbe Houso. The parliamentary fox
turned up npaln. He rnl-ed the point of no
quorum, and tellers woro named. McAdoo
saw tbut his hand was running out, and retired
after gottlnc unanimous comment forthe print
ing of the bill and amendments lu tho Ueivnl
The committee rose. The great silver mace
was replttoed on Its pedestal Mr, Carlisle took
thochulr. and had hardly received Mr. Dock
ery's report from the Committee of the Whole
when Mr. Springer of Illinois got tbe floor.
Tho hour for tbe consideration of bills called
up by committee had expired and the Houso
had run Into tho rogulai order, which wan un
flnlxhod business. Mr. Springer took advan
tage of the opportunity and raoiod that tbo
5 House go into Committee of tbe Whole for the
urtber consideration ot tbo Oklahoma bill,
he motion was carried. The grent silver
mace again disappeared, and Mr. Dockery was
again called to pre-lde in committee.
The Oklahoma bill provides for tbeorganfza
tlon of what Is known as "No Man's Land,"
and the Cherokee Mrlp Into a Territory. It
includes 21.823.10!) acres. Most of this lund Is
covered by Indian titles, Tho opponents of
the bill fay that It Is a bill proposing to organ
ize a Territory, and to acquire title aftorward,
taking the land from tbe Indians and paying
11.25 por acre tor lu Settlers are to pay this to
the Government when the land Is thrown open.
Ah amendment was proposed, providing that
the consent of all the Indians on the land
should be obtained Instead of tbe oonsent oi
. the Indians who claimed to own it.
ft 1""". Hooker made an argument favoring
fy. J!1H '''iiendnipnt Gen. Warner of Missouri.
r' "eOriindromiiinndernf tho Grand Army of
iiw itcptili le. opiuined It on the ground that tho
JJHIn hi mil, n'Bit who held leases there would
imi.nl nulaititii,. IndlnnH. Oen. HooUr replied
u Jt If the Cberokoes are the ownurn of what
?.klnown as tbo Cherokee Outlet, and If they
'. n poorer trlbee permission to bold
i!SSl ,h,'rene pW not ree Trhitbe oceu
pants ihoiifd not be consalted. He Insisted
t tie Chsrokeos had & right to lease the
,
land to whoever thoypleasod, cattle syndlonten
or any one eleo. Gen. Warner replied that
their right of leae bad been.denled by Mr.
Lamar when Hocretary of tho Interior, and by
othor Government ofllclals.
Tbo tall, red rooiter from Colorado. Mr.
Bymea. then, mounted the fence and crowed
long and lustily, .lie declared that theChcro
kees had ceded the land to the Unltod States,
that it hod boen appraled. and that they had
recolved part payment In .appropriations.
Their only title to It now waj tho fact that they
arn entitled to the balance of tho money. Gen,
Cutcheon said that It Uongres bad lookod
upon it as a completed transaction thoy would
hao paid nil tho money at the time.
Mr. Sprlncor wns making evory effort to
forco tho bill through. Ho trlod to limit tho
delmto on tho amendment to ten minutes, bat
Ponderous Judge Bnrnns of Goorgla next do
nled Mr. Hymn's statement of the abonluto ces
sion of the land by treaty In I8C6. That tioaty
provided that under certain onnditlons tbe
lands were to be ceded to friendly Indians oc
cuoilng them. Mr. Payson sent una public
document to back Judge Barno'a apportion.
"Thais It," the Judge triumphantly said.
"There wai no cession, but nn agreement
unaer certain conditions to code the land to
the friendly Indians, nnd the Government did
not nccopt tho conditions."
Gen. Hooker again got tho floor. He sntd
that the Chorokoee, In accordance with nn
agreement with tho Government, had toded
dome of the Innds to tho friendly Indians, and
tho consent of these , Indians ought to bo ub
talnod under tho bill.
Gen. Wurner replied that 8nerotary Lamar
had held that the pretondod leases." as he
called them, to tho cattlo syndicates at two
cents nn aero ar"o Invalid. Ho quoted
from Judgo Brower those words: "The
Cherokoe strip was nn outlet, not
for rosldence, out for a pathway to tho unoccu
pied Innds of tho West Those lands wero gU en
to the Indiana not as a homo but asnn outlot.
They received 7.000,000 ocies for their homes
outside of thoso Innds."
Mr. Springer thon forced tho vote on tho
Amendment. Gen. Hooker raised tho point of
no quorum, and ho nnd Mr. Byrnes acted as
telloiB. They Atood ot tbo mouth of tho main
alsloandtho members pnsed betweon them,
each tellor keeplbg n record of tho vote. Twen
ty minutes elapsed nnd still thoro vfns no quo
rum. Finally the tellers rotlrod.iind the Clerk
cnllod tho roll to ascertain whothor thoro nana
quorum In tho Uoure. Then 203 members
nnswored to tholr names. This was 42 moro
than a quorum.
' The tellers will resume tholr places," snld
Mr. Dockery. " All who have not now voted
on tbe nmendmont will pasB bol ween them."
Ab Gen. Hooker and Mr. Symeswoioout at
lunch, Judgo Barnes and Gen Weaver acted as
tullora. A thin stream ot members passod be
tweon them. " One moro in tho negutlo."
Gen. Weaver would shout In a clear tenor voice.
At long Inten nls tho (loop baso of Judgo Bnrnos
could bn heard. " One moro in tho afllrmutlve."
At last a smile Illumined tho face ot Chairman
Dookery. The clork had announced that a quo
rum bad Anally voted.
The vote stood: Yeas. 33: nays. 131 nlno
moro than a quorum, tio Gon. Hooker's amend
ment was lost.
Mr. Sprlngor then sprung In an amendment
providing for the distribution among tho In
dians by the Commissioner! of money paid for
tbo land. Horo Mr. Cobb of Alabuma, a thin
and nervous man. got tbo floor. In n shrill
tone he denounced this ns a proposition to
allow tho Commissioners to bribe tbe Indians
to agree to tbo scheme. Mr. Sprlngor replied
that It simply proposi-d to buy tho land from
the Indians. Mr. Cobb, however. Insisted that
tho amendment provided tbnt If the Indian
signed tho agreement ho would bavo so muoh '
money paid to htm right away.
" That's It," suld Mr. Sprlngor, "providing ho
signs it in n specified time."
Horo Gen. Bplnola wanted to knowbow muoh
of this land w ould go for railroad grants.
"Not an aero of It." replied Mr. Springer.
Judgo Payson of Illinois thon threw n bomb
Into the House. Under the bill, when tbo land
Is thrown open to settlement, the settler pays
11.25 an acre for It. if he remains tbreo years
on it A soldier pajsthe same money, but Is
required to romnlu only one year on tho land.
The (1.25 goos to tho Indian. Judge l'aysnn
wanted tho homestead act applied to tbe
soldlor. In other words, the soldier was to ro
maln on the land forthe lima specified in the
homostoad act, deducting his term of service,
nnd pay nothing. This would leave the Govern
ment to Day tho S1.25 to the Indians.
Mr. Springer denouncod tho proposition as
outrageous.
Judge Payson replied that ho might de
nounce It. but ho wouldn't dare go on the
record In a yea and nny vote ugainst It.
Mr. Springer doelnred that no would gladly
do bo, and added, "I will say that thoro nevor
was n proposition more demagogic and incon
sistent than this one."
Gen. Weaver followed. He denounced the
proposition with all his heart. He said that it
was meant to stab tbe bill In the name of the
Union soldier. It was practically a donation
from tho Government of J200 to every soldier '
Jrho took 1UO acres in the proposed Territory,
t was unjust to every Union soldier who did
not fettle there.
Grand Cominunder Warner also bltterlr op
posed tbo amendment. If thoso woro publia
InndH. hu said, it would be all right. Undor this
law the sttler must live on tbo land three
years, nnd the soldle.' ono. Both can take ICO
acres, and tho soldiornns to pay his fl.25 the
same ns the settler, because It is not publlo
land. Mr. Warner characterized Juriec Payson
as tho "pretended friend o( t!i holdlfr." Ho I
next described tho fertility of the land In
glowing terms. ;
This brought up ono-nrmod Gen.Hooker. "If '
tblRis the Lldnrado that ou describe." he said,
"don't you think it rather hard that the poor
Indian should be compelled to recelvo only
$12an ncro for it?" ,
Gen. Cutcheon began to badger both Hooker
and Warner, ond Gon. Warner replied that he
oonosed tho amendment in tho interest of tho
Union soldlor.
Hero Mr. Peters of Kansas darted Into the
arena. He paid that nil the rights of the Union
soldier to public Innds worn pi eserved In sec
tion 8 of tho bill. As tho time ol t-ottloment
was limited to three years. Pnyson's proposi
tion wa thnt the Union soldier, by the deduc
tion of his term of service, might tnke the land
without settlement nnd without paying for ii
Judgo Payson denied this. The Homostoad
lnw, which his proposition covered, llxod tho
tlmo nt five yours.
Mr. Peters acknowledged his mistake. Ho
said, however, tbut tho proposition vlrtuully
proposed to tax nil tlio soldiers in tho Union
for the benefit of tho few who settle on thoso
lands.
Mr. 8pringer ngnln denounced Judge Pay
son's proposition. Tho f 1.20. he xnid w as paid
only for land covered by Indlnn titles. Itwns
tho same ns had been done nhen the great
Sioux reservation nnd other Indian resorves
had been bought by tho Goernment nnd
thrown open for settlement. No ono naked for
the exemption of the soldlor from tho pat ment
ot tho money when thoso lauds woro thrown
open.
Gon. Cutcheon beenn another speech, when
be was Interrupted by one of the Big Four. He
was Joseph G. Cannon oi Illinois. Shaking his
foietlnger at Gen. Cutcheon he shouted: "It
this umondment Is adopted will you oonsent to
heartily support tbe bill ?"
Gen. Cutcheon replied that be would vote for
tho bill, but preferred to vote for it with the
amendment
Gen. Mnnsnr of Missouri nnd Mr. Kerr of
Iowa opposed the nmeudment. The Jatlor said
that the opposition came Irom two sources
friends of the Indian nnd those whoclnlm to
bo 1 1 lends of the soldlor. Ho, know, howorer,
that tho soldiers favored tho bill as It Is.
Mr. Houk of East Tenaosneo arose In red hot
fervor In support of Judge Payson. Houk is a
screamar. Members gathered around him
from nil quarters In anticipation of great fun,
but tbe great Unionist was either not feeling
well or he had got bold of the wrong end of the
stick. Certain It was that he wa9 not up to his
usual mark
Then Mr. Perkins of Kansas donnunced the
amendment Ho said that It would discrimi
nate in favor of a few soldiers who were living
upon tbeborderof tbe proposod territory at the
exnonse of tho groat body of veterans.
By this time it won three minutes ol 5 o'clock,
at which hour, under a special rule, tho House
must adjourn.
Darkness had come, and the llluminntod
celling flooded the chamber with a mel
low light The Committee arose. To tbe
astonishment of every ono Ben. Butter
worth was called to tho Cnnlr. Never whs
there a more hearty round of applnunn beard
In tbo Ilout-e. It was the first time that Ben
lins received this honor. He blushed like a fon
der maiden whon tbo first words oi love are
whispered In her ear. The applause lusted for
more than a minute. Thon Mr. Dockey np-
Soared In tbe arena In front of tho Speaker's
osk, and as the Clmltmnn of tbo Com
mltteo of tho Wbolo reported to Gen.
Butterworth that tbe commltteo had come
to no conclusion on tho Oklahoma bill. Tho
House then adjourned. There was much spec
ulation as to Mr. Dockery'e reasons lor calling
lien Butterworth to the chair. Tho general
opinion seemed to bo tbnt he waa looklmr for
the Chairmanship of the Commlttoe on Ways
and Meano In the Fifty-first Congress.

The Tariff Bill Drugs Hlowlr AIook In the
Heuute Itlddlebervter on tbe ltampuar.
WABiirNOTON, Dec. 19. Tho Republican
Benutors are unablo to llvo up to tbelr con
tract to rush their Tariff bill through the Sen
ato in short order, and It begins to look
more and more as though It would not
bo passed many days before the close of
tbe session. Two ot their own men deserted
them on an adjournment date to-day. and tho
result Is that tbe Senate will not meet
again until Monday, Senator Aldrlcb, who bos
charge of tho debate, was absent from
the city, nnd HUcock was uiado the
temporary party whip. Ho did not
crack the weapon strong enough, and
he was beaten on a tost vote. Senator Gray,
early la the afternoon, on behalf of the Demo
crats, moved that when the Senate adjourn It
be to meet on Monday next The Benubllcana
wero called upon to oppose this attack on the .
' ' ' -
prospects of tho bill, and thoy all did so,wltb
tbo exception of Cnmoron and Bow
on. Tho latter Senator does not caro
much about the tariff lust now. as he Is fight
ing nn un-hlll battle for rcOloctlon. Ho does
not think his constituents nro very anxious for
thoSennto moasmo olthor, so he voted for nn
adjournment Don Cameron did so. too. le
causo ho long ago pledged himself to roto
on any Adjournment proposition that Is
made, no matter what It is, Kvcn In
spite of theeo deserters tho ltenubllcnna
might hnvo won had they not been caught
napping with ono or two of them absent nnd
not paired. Little headway Is being made
with the bill. An each Item is reached
tho DoraocrntH offer nn nmendmont In
tbo way of reducing tha nmount of duty.
Several moro or lens rambling speeches nro
rondo, a yea and nay vote Is taken, the nmend
mont Is defeated, nnd tho clerk proceeds to
read tho next i-oetion ot tho bill All othor
business of tho Sennto has been laid aside, ex
copt tho most necessary routine, and these
methocs aro likely to contlnuo.
Senator Mddloborger oreatcd a sonsatlon to
day, and but for tho not that his term oxpires
in loss than three months, It is almost cortaln
I that a resolution would be nfferod toexpel htm.
Senators on both sides of tho Chamdor are ut-
I torly disgusted with him, nnd thoy would ro-
, fuso to Ignore hla actions oven now
but for tholr knowledge of his weakness. Had
I tho Virginian Senator gono ono stop furtbor
than he did, however, he would hnvo been
forced to take his seat, and perhaps a pitched
battle would have resulted. Col. Canaday, tho
Sergeant-at-ArmB. whoso duty it would
hnvo boon to compol lllddlebergor to ob
sono tho rules of tho benoto. 1b a
Southerner, too, and nnox-Confedorato oflloer.
Ho comes from n fighting country, and If ho
had been bit there would havo been trouble.
Hlddloberger did not know exactly what ho
wanted to-day, hut ho known what he got, nnd
that Is an exhibition of President Ingall's
nerve.
it was just 12:15 whon tho military figure ot
tho Virginian came lnlolhe hennte. Ills vost
wan opoii from bottom to top, and hlasntln-
, lined frock cont thrown buck. A largo gold
chain wus wound about his nook, and his fueo
was flushed with oxcltement. Senator Vance i
I was making a tariff speech, nnd tbo I
one-legged Senator Horry of Arkansas was
In the chair. With tho utmost Insolenco Mr.
Blddleberger rose to n point of ordor. and be
fore stating it domnudod In a stammering. In-
I coheront voice that tho North Carolina
orator tnke his seat The fuco of the
usually goofi-nnlurcd Mr. Vanco grow
red with passion, ond ho appealed to
tho Chalrto protect him Irom such an interrup
tion. Tbo Chill r endonvored to do so. hut Hid
dleborgor would not down. Ho Inslstod that
whnun Sonatnrroso ton question of order tho
man occupy lug tho floor must sit down.
Mr. Vance contlnuod to stund, whllo
Chnirmnn Berry undortook to hun
dlo tho enraged bouthorner. Mr.
Ktddlebeiger's grievance was that a trick had
been played upon him. und by the shortening
of the morning hour bo had boen denied tho
opportunity to mnko his motion for open ses
Blonnon the dyunmlto treaty.
"Tho Sonato has not exhausted the morning
hour." he shouted. "It has not done a damned
thing to-day."
At this decidedly unparliamentary language
I and outrageous breRCh of deoorum tho senior
Senntor from Massachusetts, Mr. Hoar, falily
juinpod to his foot with surprise uud
, nnger. while other more demonstrative
Senators nudlblv gavo vent to their disgust
The representative dictator, Mr. r.dmunds
was out of tbe chamber, but Senntor Tellor und
other In tbo immediate vicinity of Blddle
berger fairly trembled for fonr be was going to
shoot. He did not but finally But down when
told by Mr. Berry that ho wus out of order, say
ing: "Oh, well, the Senntor from Arkansas does
not know nny hotter."
Mr. Vanco went on with his speech, nnd after
n lapso of n few minutes tho Virginia Senator,
who bad been down stnlrx, bobbed in
again, and la a hoarse nnd ehuklng
voice renowed his point of order, again
demanding that Vance sit down. Tills
tlmo he struok a Tartar. Mr. Ingalls was
in tl" Chair, and in a loud, do'ibornte and 11 rm
voice hn told the excited Heuator to tako his
Boat adding that the Cliulr was perfectly capa
ble or enforcing tho rules, ltlddloborger
threw back bis head, lookod defiantly at the
Chair, and stood still.
"If tho Sonator does not tnke his sont." rang
out Mr. Ingalls' llrm.rcsoluto voice, "the Chair
will order the executive olllcer to enforce the
rules."
At this point the tall form of Sergosnt-at-Arms
Cnnnduy was scon moving alon to tho
warlike Sonator's do'k. Tho latter, with a
sneer said out to Mr. Ingalle: "Oh. you will."
and then refusing to take his own chulr. but
keeping bis eye on tho Segcant-at-Arms drop-
edfntoa so'a beside Senators Cameron and
nvis, and proceeded to utter curses
so loud mid deep that thoy were perfectly audi
ble to the gallery. In the meantime Col. Can
aday, with a nonchalant air, passed out tho
door as if he had only come around to get the
time of day. Cameron and Davis cave itiddlo- i
bergnr the cold shoulder, and thus left alone
ho went off Into the lobby. Afterward ho
strolled over to Senntor Vest's sent and the
two Southernorns had a wnrm argument. I
It was thought tnat neuoo wus Anally nnd j
fully restored, but laterin thedaylttddloberger
appeared again, and, with some disconnected
remarks about Incnlls's throutof "culling the
police." olloied a reolutlou providing for a re
organization of tho Senate by tho oloetlon of
new ofllclals. Including, of course, the presid
ing olllcer, on Jan, 1.
' All during tbo day therowns much talk about

Washington, Dec. 18. A lariro delegation
from tho American Sabbath Convention had a
hearing this morning In tho rocopllon room ot
the Senate boforo the Commlttoe nn Education
nnd Labor, which has beforo II tho bill Intro
duced last May by Mr. Illalr "to secure to the
1 pooplo tho enjoyment of the first day of tho
week, commonly known as the Lord's Day, ns
n day of rest, and to promote its obsorvnnco an
n day of religious worship." Tho members of
tho committoo present wero Senators Blair
(Chairman), Wilson of Iowa, Palmer, Call, and
Tayno. Tho object of tho hearing was to press
upon tho commltteo tho consideration and
paesago ot this bill. Tho delegation was Intro
duced by tbo Bev. W, V. Crolts of Now York,
who prosonted many documents bearing on
tho subject, Including Cnrdtnal Glbbons's let
tor. He said that tho petitions tor tho passngo
of the bill represented nenrly 14.000.000 persons.
Mrs. B. 0. Bncon, superintendent of tho Sab
bath Observance of tho Womon's Christian
Tempornnco Union, road a paper, nndsnld that
theattltudoof tho Government on tho subject
of Sabbath labor was working great lnjustlco
and datnago to cltlzons. Tho States woro pow
erless to prevent the running of Sunday trains
that power being In tbe general Govommotit
Sho claimed that the Sabbath movement was
favored by tbo loaders of thought and odu- I
catois, almost without exception, by nil tho
Christian people ot evory ProtoBtant denomi
nation, oicopt the Seventh Day Baptists, and
by nearly tho ontlro force ot tho Knights ot i
Labor.
Mr, A. S. Divan, formerly VIoe-Ptesldent of
tho trio Ballrond Company, said that Sunday
trains can be abolished without injury cither
to the railroad companies or to tho people at
large. As to tho transcontinental tinins, hn
would get ovor the dllllculty by huvtng several
lie-over stations, where passencors could
spend Sunday, tbe rotlioudconipnule" furnish
ing thom with tree hotel .-iceommodstion, As
to llvo stuck trains, ho held that they should
never be run for moro thnn forty-olght hours
continuously. As to milk trains, he enid that
tho Snnirday milk Is not delivered to New York
consumors before Mondnv: and. us their ex
treme limit Is 100 miles that milk can be fnr
waided on Sunday nights. As to Sunday mall
trains, they were unneccesniy, ns telograubB
were resorted to In cases ot emergency.
Tho Bev. Dr. Lowts. representing the Seventh
Day Baptists, opposed tho bill or desired to
have Seventh Day Baptists, Seventh Day Ad
ventists, and .lows exempted from its opera
tion. He said that ho asked tbnt tho bill be t-o
amended on tho broad ground of conscience
and of the constitutional rights of members ot
thoe communities. , , ,
He uyked that thoy should be permitted to
carry on legitimate business on tbo first dny of
the week, as their rollgion required thom not
to di so on the soventh day.
The Bev. Goorgo Elliott of Washington advo
cated Sabbath legislation ns nn economic
measure In the interest of worklngmen and as
a religious measure in the Interest of molality.
Dr. Johnson ot Chicago. In reply to Dr. Lewis,
said that II was simply lmpos-slblo to dlstrlbuto
a day ot rest through tho week. AH agreed
that one dny must be set apart In tho lnteiest
ot the community, and tbo great body of tho
peoplo bellovod that day to bo hundny.
Tho Bev. Byron Sunderland, pastor of tho
First Presb)torian Church. Washington, in re
ply to a question of Chairman Blair as to what
authority tbo delegation based tho change ot
day of rest from the Mosalo Sabbath to the
Christian Sunday, said tho soptennate. or di
vision of sovon days, was net provided in tho
orlglnnl cosmogony of Moses, but was referred
to all through the Scriptures, and wns tho most
important division of time a weokof six secu
lar days, followed by u seventh and sacred day.
'I hero Is no notice In tho Scriptures of tho
change from tho croatlon vv'eek to tho Jowlsb
woek. But all weeks tho creation, Jewish,
and Chrlstion nre founded upon some great
providential event In the Gosnolof St John
wo find the record of the first Christian week.
"Tho first dny or tho woek" ought not to bo
there. It doesn't bolong to the Christian week.
I but to the old Jewish week. Our Sunday Is tho
seventh day of the decalogue, and Dr. Lewis Is
back in tho old Jowlsh times, with which we
hnvo nothing to do.
Dr. C. II. Payne of Now York said there had
arisen In our country organizations calling
themselves "Personal Liberty Leagues,
claiming exomption In many of the Mates
from Sunday laws, especially tor tbo liquor
business. Theso lengues, whllo thoy make
their idea In behalf of the worklngmen. really
tend to oppress the worklngmon. because the
legislation thoy nsk cannot be enacted without
doing away altogether with tbo dny of rest.
Nothing but tho protection of the Sabbath can
oresorve a rest day for tbe worklngmnn
against tho exactions ot tho capitalist and em
ployer. Mr. Wolf, representing the Secular League
nnd Dofenco Association of tho United States,
1 having for Its Diirpoo tho preventing of the
i encroaching or tbe ecclesiastical idea upon the
IccMatlon of the country, characterized tho
movement for the bill as ono full of danger to
this Government, or any other. "It is an at
tempt to do by indirection what tho loiter of
the law forbids. Thoro are only four matters
of morals upon whli b the Uovornmotit may
legislate, and this Is not one of them. Tbo de
mand that wo shnll linve a civil Sabbath
which Is made horo I do not object
to; hut there Is also tho demand
for nn ecclesiastical or religious Sabbath,
v hlch I do object to. tho two actions mnking
common causo to scuro the adoption of tlio
i law iimlorionsldorntion." Mr. Wolf called at
tention to tho fact that tho Catholic branch of
tho delegation, or of tbe influence back ot tho
delegation, does not enforce observance of tho
iMihtmth dny ns asked for hero, but pormlts all
sorts of entertainments and sports in connec
tion with the religious services of tho dny. In
demanding that he should surrender his rights
forlho non-observance of n religious ilay be
cause bo was inn minority, they made It right
for htm. when in a mnjority. to invado the
rights of tho dolegntiou loobeorro the day ns
thoy felt It should bo observed. It was this that
made it a dangerous precedent to establish.

They Object to the InvuKlon or Our Theutres
by Cheap Foreign Artists.
Washington, Doc. 13 Tho American
actor has taken alarm at the Invasion of the
theatres ot tho Unltod States by the ever
Increasing army of English and European
footllgbt artists. Ho says that tho profusion Is
overcrowded, and that he Is being pushed to
the wall by the actors from abroad who come
here, and after securing a large share of tho
wealth of tbe country, flit back to their native
shores to rovol In their newly-acquired wealth.
He tells the same story that miners, mechan
ics, and others hnvo told of being supplantod
by cheap labor brought to this country under
contract Like the artisans, he wants protec
tion. Louis Aldrlcb. Hatley Merry, and Lewis
M. Sanger, a committee representing tho
Actors' Order of Friendship, appeared
beforo tbe Ford Immlgrailon Investigating
Committee and asked that tho Contract Labor
law bo amended so ns to include professional
netors and musicians among tbe classes pio
hlblted from entering the united States under
a labor contract At present the low epoolally
oxompts actors und musiolans from 1 provis
ions. Under this oxemptlon tho commltteo
said thnt large numbers of foreign actors woro
annually bro lent to this country, forthe solo
rikibon that they would work cheater than
American actors. The money obtained wns
not spent here, but was token back to the
countries whence they cunio whon tholr en
gagement wns at an end.
1 hey did not, tbo commltteo said, obiectlto tho
presence of stars like Irving, Coquolln, 1'nttl,
andotbeis, but to the host ot minor actors they
brought 'vltb them, and to the cheap grade of
foreign act ors.Iw horn American niuiiugors Im
ported solely because of their cheapness. Tbe
nvorngo pay ot the American nctor waa $10 a
week for a senson averaging twenty-six weeks,
whllo tho live race weekly pay of the English
actor whs only $10. Tbo American actors wero
the equals of their foreign brethren In evory
respect Many of the American actors had
served tho country during tbo wnr, and Uiuy
all contributed to the prosperity of tho courtry.
Their proiassion was already overcrowded,
ond tbey thought thomsclves fairly entitled to
protection against the wholesale Importation
of cheap foreign adorn, who wero undor no ob
II alien to the United btntos.
Mnry Andoi son, they declared, had brought
her whole com pany, Mipers. stage inethnnlci.
and all, from England boeause ebo could hire
them cheaper than Ameilcnns. The Klralfys
, had for tbo same rea-on Imported all tbelr
bullet cirls, actors, and stage people, and tho
same thine was true of the burlesuua "how,
"SlonteCrlsto, Jr.," now running In New York.
The committee furtbermo e complained that
tho wurdrobe. stage properllee. und scenery
, were all imported, contrary to law. without the
pavinent ol customs duties nnd to tbo barm
of Americans ilenllng In these tilings. This
was done, the committee declared, through the

a screw prorellor which J. J. Eunstadter. tho i

or tho rudder. Tho shaft or the screw Is car
ried by the steel framework of the rudder, and
motion is communicnled to it by an Ingeni
ously constructed universal joint, by which tbo
si row shaft Is connected to the main shaft. The
rudder screw revolves, but allows tbo rudder to
movo freely to any required nnglo. The rudder
screw In to he used la connection with another
screw such as is used on auy ocean steamer,
thus making a double screw, one close to tho

Ho testified tnut he bad bad plumbers almost
constantly at work during the period of the

Por a long time ho employed Italians to carry
tho water ou' of his collar in palls. Thnn he
rigged a pump in tho basement nnd hired men
to operate It, sometimes night and day. but
nover obtained moro than temporary relief.
He made frequent complaints at tho Depart
ment of Publlo Works, and on ono occasion
took Commissioner Hubert O. Thompson
down Into tho basement to see for him
self how serious the situation was Mr. K os

A DUKE WITH PICTURES TO BELL.
Coming Over to New York with his Dach
ess and hla Hpaulsh Gallery.
The spoctaclo of a Spanish duko and duch
ess, both ot exalted lineage nnd unquestioned
standing at tho court of Spain, coming to
America to sell a picture gallery Is a startling
one. Tbo management of oleturo gallerlosln
New Vork over sinco tbe celebrated tour ot
" Christ Boforo Pilate" has lnrgoly been a mat
ter of shrowd theatrical speculation. Nothing,
however, has quite reached the exaltod social
eminence of the coming exhibition ond salo In
Now York. It Is to be tbo sensation of next
soason. His Royal Highness the Duko of Dnr
cal. now resident In Madrid, who Is connoctod
with tho reigning sovereign of Portugal, will
arrive In New YorK within the coming month.
Ho Is about 25 yoars or ago, and this will ,
be his first visit to this country. He Is
to bo accompanied by his wife, the Duchess,
who Is ono of the lending beauties or the Span
ish court, and tbelr protonco In New York will
undoubtedly create a good deal of a stir in so
ciety. As n rule forolgn personages of title and
importance visit the United Statos during tho
summer season whon society is divided, and
their time Ir put In at Newport and tbe Berk
shire Hills. The Duko nnd Duchess of Durcal
will arrive at tho very height of the soason, and.
as he Is a man of singularly amiable nnd happy
temperament It is likely that be will bo vory
warmly received. . ...
Tho Duko will comblno business with pleas
sure. Ho will bo accompanied by an agont.
who will bring with him tho entire ducal col
lection of paintings, which will bo first placed
on exhibition nnd finally sold at auction. Somo
of the pictures wore from the Duchess's family,
but tbe majority ot them wore inherited by the
Duko from tbe present King of Portugal. The
collection is believed to bo ono of tbe tlnost In
Europe, and Is valued at more than a million
dollars. It contains specimens of tba most
celebrated of the works of tbo Spanish mas
tors, all antedating the year 1800.
USOCKISO AT TUB DOOR.
Tbe Fonr Western Territories that Wish
ta Enter the Union.
Bisjiabck, Deo. 13. Communications havo
boen received here from Wyoming. Montana,
and Washington calling upon the leaders In
Dakota to tnko steps toward holding un inter
territorial convention to act in the Interest of
admission for all the Territories that are prop
erly equipped for Statehood. Dakota Is one
grand mass mooting at present and will so re
main until sbo becomes a State. Every town
and city In tbo Terrttoiy is Holding meetings
nnd buying torches, and every orator is giving
his lungs abundance of exercise. Lvery man
who owns a house or an ncre of land feels con
fident that Statehood will add to the value of
his property, and every community feels tbnt
it is being held back by the faot that Dakota Is
still n Territory.
The Legislature will convene on Jan. 8. and
It Is expected that one of Its first acts will be
to call a Constitutional Convention and take
othor preliminary steps toward Statehood. In
nearly every legislative district the memners
hnvo been Instructed in favor of the division of
tho Territory, and thero will be virtually no
opposition to calling a Constitutional Conven
tion for North Dakota.

jury to-day began investigating tho shooting
at tbo county jail on Saturday night last
Mayor Thompson was tho only witness ex
amined. He testified that tbe crowd continued
to advanco on tbe jail after repeated warnings
given by himself, the Sheriff, and many others.
The crowd made many threats, and he be
lieved tbey wero in earnest He heard consid
erable talk of using dynamite. He could not
say whether tbe first shot was fired by the
officers or by the crowd. He bad giv en orders
to hold the jail at all hazards. He did not call
out the military, because ho behoved tbe civil
authorities could bold ths jail, and was op
posed to the nee of military only as a last re
sort. Mayor Thompson said he had intended
to bring tho forco ot officers out ot the jail and
make an attempt to drlvo tho crowd back from
tbe alleyway leading to tbo entrance, but cot
cut oft from tho jail and oquld not get back.
Tbe troops have all leit tbe city, and only a
small force of deputy sheriffs is now guarding

Thoro was n bljt turnout f member of ' '
the Union Ltnguo Club last night It was ths r f
blggost, nomo of tho members said, tine 'i c
Qrovor Cleveland was declared elected four L
years since. It was an annual meeting, noon i
gratulatory affair over tho success of thelte, j
publican national tiokot. and a polltloal meet- " 1
lng all tbe way through. t,. j
It waa tho night that Dr. Depew would be ,; j
ablo to hobblo on bis onitohea from his Car (" j
rlago and take the President's ohalr. But Me, k '
Depow didn't comoyand Mr. Le Grand B. Oafee i.
non prosldod. Nearly Blx hundred member v
facod him In tho big olub hall. It wo known "j. ',
that tho club proposed to sit down In some j,
fashion on Thomas 0. Piatt and his claim to
tho Treasury portfolio. It had also been rrhlt -'
pored that Mr. Piatt bad taken steps not to) .
permit the friends of the Wood Pulp Benator to r ',
have everything their own way, and that A tar ,
age contest woultl greet any resolutionn In Mr. :
Miller's favor. But everything turned ont '
right for tho Herkimer man. The Plait oppO- ,,;' ;
sltlon didn't materialize. a i-
Tho Hon. Joseph H, Choato waa the creak ; !-
man of tho occasion. After a resolution otn :?..i, ,
clnlly requesting President Depow to an ,,
point a committoo to nominate officers for th -,)
ensuing yonr and report at tho next meeting. (
Mr. Cbonto handed up to Socrotary Slgourner '
W. Pay a typewriter copy of some resolutions, ' ,
In tho first place they congratulated Harrison '
and Morton nnd the ltepubllcan party, and . i
wore ploasod to nay of Oon. Harrison that" ha ' '
will enter upon tho duties of his great ofOoa ' Ii
with his own party In control ot both House , P
ol Congress, and free from all pledges.' , ' J
The resolutions then say that the Bonabll- ,
cans nre bound to adopt tho lejrlslatlon of Con m
gross to carry out tbe declared wishes of the , f j
people and to fultll their pledges given In suo- . 1
cessive national conventions, to reduce tax-- 1

to roiorm and reviso the existing tariff, to- ' " r
firuno nway its extravagances, and to readjust, ,y. ti!
ts burdens with a careful regard to ihe preser- S l
vatlon and protection ot our manufacture, - y
whlob have been fostered and maintained br , -7
the Bopubllcan party's nld." .1, !.
Then came the great obioct-of the meeting. ...' ,l
stated thus: , fj
"That we hare an abiding faith in the oapae u
Ity and purpose of the President elect to select , f;
his own Cabinet regardless of all attempts at '
dictation or Importunity from any quarter, and i-l
to surround hlmsolf with constitutional advi- t,
sera, who shnll be men ot largo capacity, of , !
spotless personal character, and of steadfast f
devotion to thoso principles which have been 1
signalized and vindicated tn his own eleo- - 1
tlon, and wo earnestly deprecate the J
studied efforts which aro being mado with I
undisguised Importlnenco to force hlB band, f
nnd to put upon him clamorous applicants for 1
filaees In bis Cabinet, upon tho ground of al- 'If
oged partisan eorvlces, or pecuniary contriou-
ttons. or local control. That euoh oonsldcro- 1.
tlons constitute .no claims to these high places I
nnd responsible appointments upon which the v i
snccesB of tho incoming Administration de v' 7
Bends, nnd we warmly protest against them," . t
It will bo noticed that no mention is mads of .,' ,
either Piatt or Miller's name, but after the " .'
vociferous applause with whlob tbo resolution,
was greeted Clinton B. Flak's motion to send a, ,
copy ol the wholo thing to Oen. Harrison, and -, .
1 aqntck adjournment, the members were free " . ;
enough in their statements that tho resolution
was agalnet Piatt and for Mlllor ivery time.
1 and no mistake. There woro no s pooches for , ;
the resolution ond none against it
