1' THE ALBANY LEGISLATURE. H . ' TAtX ATTEMF1S TO AUED HIE XSUitBRATIOX BItl. Ban f ,a nratoernte In tne Assembly AAvnnee HI II to Third Keaain-lt Will Com Vp rU rnr Final raaaaaje To.en DeaaoenUle g.aalora Considering the Election Caaes, LI Ai.ihst. Jan. 10. The Enumeration bill was IB nnlerodton third reading In tho Assembly W Ihla mornlntrnntl will coma up (or flnnl pns- 'I fft(j0 to-morrow. Everything wns peaceful. 'I i tio Democrat concluded that It was not til Wl)rth while to rush tho bill through and that II! they would glvo reasonable 'tlmo (or Its con- Jli rltleratlon and (or the offering of amond- im ments. Tho Speaker did not follow the, I.leu- W tonfint-Governor' rulings nnd made one ruling I which wns dlroctly contrary to thotullngof I tlioMeutctiant-Oovomor on Senator Aspln- I nil's resolution last night, Tho Lieutenant- I (lovernor held that the recognition of nBena- I tor entitled him only to offer a resolution and i tut to "pea!' to tho resolution without further tIM revju'iiltlon. That gave the Lieutenant-Gov ernor tho opportunltr to recognize Bonator ' Cantor to move to lay tho Aaplnall resolution on tlio table and to shut off debate. The Dem ocrats of the Assembly tried that to-day. but (Speaker flush ruled ngalnst them. This satis (led even-body. As Gen. Husted put It. "It wns a nice, nulot. comfortable session, and no body lias any fault to find." The Enumeration bill as tt was passed by the Benato was repoited favorably without amendment by the Committee on Ways and Means. The three Itenubllcans on the com- 1 , mlttce. Husted. Doyo. and Mnlby, dissented. O-n. Husted moved that the bill bo recom- J mlttcjto the Committee on Ways and Means I (or (urthor hearing and amendments. Mr. I Ocorge H. Bush said that there was a full 1ft moetlnc of the committee, only two of the elovon members, one Democrat and one Ho publlcnn. being absant. Tho bill wns printed and It had been diBcussed In the newspapers. It had boon eonsldorod In the Benato. and everybody was familiar with It forms. The best thine to do was to consider It In the As sembly and to offer tho amendments there. The motion to recommit the bill .was lest by n vote of 58 to O'J. The vote was a pirtr vote, except that Mr. Hill ot Albany, who said It would do no harm to novo the bill wait in the commlttoa two or three days, voted with tho Ilepublieans. According to the provisions of the bill the enumeration Is to he tnkon In Fobruary. nnd Feerotury of State Itleo. who Is to have oharge m . of It. wants ns much Unions ho can get to yl make tho nocessary arrangements before tho ' enumeration Itself bogfnt-. That Is why the Democrats have glron tho bill precedence over olhar legislation. The ltopublicnns offered dotens ot amend ments to tho bill by suctions as It wan road. These amendments wero nil lost in unuh in stance by a patty vote. Tho Domocrats made few speeches, in order to take up us little time s possible, livery Republican who otTored en amendmont mado u bpooch for it nnd then the previous question wns ordered. There was little Interest In the discussiou. as It whs known that the majority of the Assem bly was not prepared to accept ninendmunts which would necessitate the return of the bill to tho Senate where tho Kopubllcnn9 nre somewhat unruly. The tiennto used to be a fairly dlgnilled body, but In view of the '. rumpus last week and tho mlnstrol entertain- inent lat night the House takes precedence In dignity and decorum. . . . - Tlio first amendment offerod to tho Knu- meration bill was to transfer the control ot tho printing from the Clerks of tho Houses to tho Mocretnryot State. Tho Democrats explained 1 , that tho work had boon divided in order that it might bo speedily nnd carefully done, and tho Secretary ot State would liavo a great donl to do without attending to the printing. The next amendment was to give tho power of ap pointing enumerators to tho County Clerk in stead of tho Secretary of Statu. Other amend ments wore offerod to punish enumerators who made (also returns, and to make the enumerators take an oath ot office. Tlio Democrats explained that the Tonal Codo al ready provided for theso things, and that it was not necesary to repeat the provisions in the Dill. Mr. Connelly asked the Republicans why they had violated the btato Constitution for Hve years by not passing an Enumeration bill when they had control of the Legislature. Mr. Deyo wild that. Gov. Hill, by his arrogance and unheard of abuse of the veto power, had vio lated the Constitution, nnd that it was not the fnultof the Republicans In tho Legislature. Mr. Doyo made an attack on the down-town As sembly districts in Now York. Ho said that the districts below Fourteenth streot wero pocket boroughs and that not one of them had as many votes as there wero in his county of Broome. Mr. ltoche of East Droadway became Indignant ovor this nnd wanted to mako a speech, but Mr. Dry Dollar Sullivan, after try ing tn persuade Mr. ltoche not to make a speech, moved the previous question, and so prevented the vindication which Mr. ltoche i was going to deliver. ' Mr. Maucy of st Lawrence county wanted tho time (or makingthe enumeration changed from February to June. Ho said that a winter enumeration would bo almost impossible in the farming districts in the northern part of i tho State on account of tho snow. g Tho St Lawrence county members. Keoler. I Malley. and Lang, did most ot tho speaking I forthe ItepublicaiiH. St Lawrenco county has about half ns many votusas the Nineteenth Or Twenty-third New York district, and will loso I at least one Assemblymnn of its three. Mr. ' 1-anc has a curious losomblanco to Manager Hill, who runs two theatres In Now York. A(tnr nil tho nmnndmnnts wore dofeatod, the bill was ordered to third reading by a vote of rut totf. Mr. George . Dush gave notice that ho would movn a call of the Houso to-morrow to have every ono present to voto on tho bill when it comes up for Its llnnl passage. Mr. Sulzer. In bohaU o( tlio htato Bar Associ ation, invitod tho Assomhlyiuon to attond the meetings of tho association in Joriman Hall. Mr. Keoler inquired if there was any freo lunch Inducement The DemocratloSenntors hnd another caucus thlsmorning. They are caucusing ovory little wlillo now. Tho caucuses nro secret, and pro vision is made for giving out official reports of tlio proceedings, i'hose reports arc not accu rate. It wnsgivon out this morning that the caucus wns called tn consider tho rules. The caucus was really culled to illscutB tho attitude o( tho llepubllcao SonatorH. tlio contests, ami tlio policy of tho session. Tho major- lty of. tho ltmoerntlo Senators aru in favor of unseating the Ilepublieans in thu Troy. Saratoga. Orange, and (lencsco dis tricts. A Im go minority of DomocnitH. incluii ingbomeof tnobonatorH with mostoxperiencn. are opposed to this roursn. They think it would lio folly for tho Democrats to follow the rrucsdert of 0)0 Billion CongresH anil seat lieinoeratH merely bocauso tho Democratic niiiioiity'ift small. There is a groat deal ot evidence In thu Troy district that the llepuhli c.mrandidate wan not (uilly elected, hut in tlio other districts only teehiilenl flaws havo so (ar been shown, nnd l( the ruling of tho Klec ti'ni ('iiniiifttio on the technical points ot tlio ballot reform law Is followed it may cost tho Democratic candidates more votes than the lleiiuljllcaiis.

A Chairman ot the State Committee Is to be chosen to-morrow, and tlio party lines nro so antagonistic, that an observer Is re minded ot the old fights betwocn Wallace and llandnll ot eight years ago. Tho hotels nnd headquarters ot tho can didates are crowded to-night and thero Is as much activity aud exclteinont as Is usunl on the ovo nf it Stnto Convention. Jamos Korr, chief olerk ot the National Houso of Representatives. Is n candldato for reflection as State Chairman, and J.

Secretary Harrlty, nnd tho entire Administration Is opposed to his reflection, and they are working desperately for Wright. Tho invincible Sam Josephs of Philadelphia, whohascomo hereto vote for Wright, Is au thority tor the statement that Kerr Is opposed because ho recontly declared hlmsolf to bo out ot tho raco. but tho knowing ones declare that ttm real reason was to give Mr. Harrlty the place ol the lato William I. Scott on tho Na tional Committee, a vneoncy to which Chair man llrico assigns Mr. Kerr, nnd which he will undoubtedly continue to till it lie is reelected Chairman to-morrow. If Wright Is sucoessful tlie committee will elect Harrlty to the va cancy and urgo his claim on tlio National tout tnlttce. , , Tint Administration (orces liavo been fight ing under tho cloak of Cleveland, hut tho truth is that i'attison has the Presidential boo In his bonnet, ami Pennsylvania's dele cation to tho National Convention, ns (ar as Mr. Harritv can control It will lio for Paulson.

Thero nre seventy-nine niemuor of tho State Com mittee, aim most of them will be hero, to-morrow. Kerr claims fifty-two votes, and Wright counts-oii about the same number.

QVAT niX.1 HIS LIBEL SUIT. The Beaver Star Fla No Bight to Coaaaet nia .Naaao With Hardaler. Beavxb, Pa.. Jan. 10. Senator Quay has won his first, criminal libel suit This afternoon tho "jury in tho case of the Commonwealth against John A. Mellon and William H. Porter, proprietors of tho Bonver Sfar. who oharged that he received monoy from Bardsley In his campaign, returned a verdict for tho prosecution. It Is probnble that, the sontonce will bo suspended. Bonator Quay's only object: tn TJrlngTng" Hie suit was vindication. It is said that he realizes that tho proprietors or the Siararo young men. impelled by party zeal to mnko tho attack on him. nud that magnanimity will gain more friends than revenge. There Is no one hero to-nlght'who believos that the maximum pennlty in tho ooso a fine of $1,000 or im prisonment, or both will be Inflicted. Tho result has been expected since the pub lication. Tho claim that the jury wero Itepub llcnn with one exception is truo. but they were intelligent and not known as partisans. Tho Judge s charge was udmlttod by tho at torneys (or both sides to bo fair nnd impartial. It loft Uio jury no alternative but a verdict of guilty. There was little defence. No attempt .wns mado to show the truth of the publica tion, but only that It was privileged. The dofendafet Mellon testified that it wns zeal ot party that got him Into tho trouble, and ho had noticed that the party lor which they had pub lished tho allegations against tho Senator did not oomo prominently to the pa per's rescuo In tho trial. Mr. Porter tho other defendant testified that he had nathing-to do with the editorial department nnd didn't know of the publication until It was made. Tho action for criminal libel brought by Bonator Quay against Albert J. Barr. Presi dent or the Pittsburgh Fbit Publishing Com pany, nnd James Mills, editor, will bo taken up In the Criminal Court there to-morrow. SENATOR OORMAK ItB-KLBCTBD.

The vote in the Houso was 80 for Gorman. 0 for Lofrodas. In tho Sonato Gorman received 20 and Lowndes :i votes. .The first and only ballot for a successor to tho lato Hon. I- K. Wilson as Cnitod States Senator was important only as showing that tho necessary strength Is solidified and ready to go to tho right mnn whenovor ho is named by tho leadors. Senator John Wnltor Smith Was the most disappointed In tho rnco, his total voto being only sixteon, which result was in striking contrast witii his expectations and reputed pledges. Gov. .Inekson'H support was satisfactory to him, and num bered 17. John S. Wirt reeelvod 17 votes. Robort M. Mol.ano, It!; .lames A. Pearce. 11: John B. Jlrown, 11: Charles II. Gibson. 7: William J.

The resolution In question was not forthcoming, however. It Is doubtful whether any member of the Assembly, Republican or Democtat, could bo Induced to offer it. Gov.

Goorgo Fatherland llocsch Is tho hardost worked man In tho Stnto Honato theso days. This Is Ills sec ond term in tho Senate. Besides his duties In tho Bennto and as representative of tho lareo German population of tho oast side, ho IsTnmmany Hall's leader In the Tenth district. Then he Is Chairman of the Com mltteo on Elections, which lias chargo ot the contested election cases, nnd ho Is Chairman ot the Judiciary Committee which has chargo of tho Ilepublieans who are up for contempt. Considering how muoh he has td do, It Is no wonder that ho sometimes makes rnlMakos. from nn Albany point ot view. The Judiciary Committee wont to-day to hear Sen ators Zorubnbet Krwln. O'Connor, and Saxton plead to the ahargo of contompt. The Senators In contempt have to be known personally to hnvo the entertainment appreci ated. Erwin Is tho homeliest man In the Stato. His fnco Is fascinating in Its homeliness. It looks as though It was put togothor in sec tions. Tho sections don't fit O'Connor Is the pro fessional beauty ot tho Bennto. Saxton Is the original author of ballot reform. Thuy all appreciated tho humor of tho situa tion, but they were a llttlo tearod. too. I-tst Thursday tho Bennto decided that theso three Republican Senators wero In con tompt becnuso they did not voto either way on tho Enumeration bill. So tho throo Senators, like the naughty sopho mores who break the college rules nnd doty the President's authority, wero suspended until tlioy repented nnd brought forth sultablo fruits thereof in the shapo ot apologies nnd other tokons of penl tonce. The Judiciary Committee, com posed of what the Senators In contempt to propitiato thorn, called "eminent lawyers, tho ablest In tho State." took tho plneo of a colloge faaulty topasson tho erring ones. It fell to George Fatherland ltoosch us Chairman to call tho committee to order. Two of the Senators in contempt are members of tho commltteo. Their names wero not called Senator Mullin. tho third Republican, wanted tholr names called, and he nearly succeeded. Sena tors Parker of Albany nnd McMahon of New York, two of the most distinguished mem bers of the Senate, votod with Senator Mullin to recognize the presence of Senators Saxton nnd O'Connor as memhors of tho committee. Tho motion to replace tholr names on tho roll was lost by a tlo vote Parker. McMnhon. and Mullin aye, and Roosch. Cantor, and McClel- This shows the line of Deraoeratlo division on the policy to be tnkon toward tho Republi cans on the contested seats as well as the con tempt proceedings. . After Scnntor Georgo Fatherland Roesch rend the journal reciting tho rormnl sins and shortcomings of the suspended Sonntors. sen ator Zoruhuhol l'.rwln s.iid: "I don'tcomo here as u suppliant Tdldnt como horo as n menial.

Senator Erwln made an argument from tho Constitution and from tho rules thnt tho Sen ate hnd no power to suspend him. They could expol him and they could lock him up in jail, but In that naso his constituents could elect n new Senator. Bnsusponding him thoy de prived his constituents of any representation, and they punished him in nn unlawful way and under rulos which thoy had not adopted. "'It was n breach of decorum nnd of etiituotto on your part to tlo what you did." ho said. Ho rend precedents from the Senate journal ot 1884, when I.ieut.-Onv. Hill presided, and from tho last Senate roconls. when Llout.-Gov. Jonos presided, to show that Lleut-Gov. Sheehan has not acted legally. "You quota Lieut-OoT. Jones," Interrupted Senator Cantor, "Why. you wanted to pull him out of the chair." "That was a little fracas for fun." said Sen ator Zerubhabol Erwln. "Lleut-Gov. Jonos know how to taken joke. He was a gentle man." Thoro was an emphasis on tlio " Ho" nnd "Gentleman." In closing his fortr-mtnuto argument Sona tor Erwln said: " It is a long road that never turns In this country. No Republican Sennte nnd no Re publican Congress ever treated Democrats as you have treated 11s. If I am In contompt I will apologize tn anybody on earth. It is my duty, but In this enso I know thnt I am right. and when I believe I nin right I will never apologize to any body on earth. Pas a resolution purging us of contempt and oonduct yourselves ns orderly, decent Senators," Senators Saxton nnd O'Connor made legal arguments. Thoy quoted from decisions ot the United States Supremo Court nnd tho Now York Court ot Appeals to prove thnt the powers ot a legislative body to punish for contempt are restricted to tlio express terms of thu statute The Revised Statutes dofine contempt and a refusal to voto is not within the definition of tho statute. The Revised Statutes also provide the penalty, and suspension is not a part of the penalty. " It you want my seat take It, " said Senator O'Connor in closing. "You havo seventeon votes nnd tho presiding ofilcnr. You can do what you please. I havo no great anxiety to continue a member of tho Benato. Senatorial honors nro not valued vory highly by me, and 1 wish you to do whatever you like." No apologies were offered. Tlio Judiciary Committee ndjourned until to-morrow, while Georgo Fatherland Roosch went to the Com mltteo on Elections, which heard more about the Ignorance of the Saratoga election officers and tho mistakes they made about tho ballot reform law, An Attempt to " Hold T7pn a Stage la Mas. aaeliaaetts, DEDitAU.

BITTEN BY A BIO RATTLER, mtEHTLER IttSO SUCKS HIE l'OISOX FROM DOT SOXtrKLL'S CUBBK. They Aave Her f.ots or Whtaaey aad Kent Iter f o a Hospital aad Mho Will Get Well Nhe'a it Pretty Yon a at Hnnke Charmer, anitOnec Before Felt the Hrrpent'a Pause. Pretty Dot Sontvoll, tho snnko charmer, was bitten In the cheek by 11 rattlesnake wlillo sho wns porforinfnc In Htibor's museum last night. Hers wns thu hist of tho acts In tho curio hall just beforothc 7 o'clock stage per formance In tlio other room. When tho Imperial Jnps had finished their wonderful bnlnticlng nets on tho swaying bam boo poles on tho nuiln stage. Little Dot canio forward nnd mounted her own stage, cnlled thn Don or Rattlesnakes, on the right sldeof tho hall. The den Is n plntfoun about 0 feet by 4, raised U'J feet from thn floor mid surrounded by a brass railing. Outside fto railing Is n wire netting. Within stands n big wooden chest that Would hold a thousand snakes. What It hold when Dot began her performance wrs ton black rattlers of the Pennsylvania breed und 11 stout club. The snakes wero a mixed lot, ninglng fiom "i tu 4 feet long, Komo belonged tu Dot and rumo to tho museum. Thoso belonging to tlio museum hnd nut benn hnndlcd recently, nor hnd their poison been drawn. They wtro the larger of tho lot nnd vicious, mid it wus thu b'ggest one which bit Dot. Tlio crowd that filled tho hall saw n rosy checked glrlot'.'O In n shorl-sklilcd costume ot red nnd blue, with it mnss or Huffy hnlr above hor smiling fnco and baru iirms and unci:. The slow music began, nnd sho opened tho big chest With n deft inovo she caught it rnttlor nnd swung him In tho air. Holding him jtibt back of tho head In ono hand, sho dtcw him through tho other hand us sho would a tross of her long hnlr, nnd then, pass ing him from hand to hand, sho wound him first about ono of her bnro nrms and thon about tho othor. nnd Anally nbout her neck. Uncoiling Iilm again, sho held him with both hnnds close to hor cheek nnd breast nslf shu wore cuddling ono nf hor own pretty babies. Careless its sho seemed, she was yet careful ami, novel' ltt tho shake's head get be yond her hand. UtOtinnftor another of the snakes was fondled nud toyed with until all the ten were nut nf tho hnx. Ah soon as each hnd heon put through his paces he was hung on tho hi ass railing where ho colled about and held himself. Now it wns tho last net. Dot gathered thu snakes from tho rail, II vo in each hand nnd passed thom in elnw tlmo round about hor head nnd face. Holding so many hc could not grasp them closoto their heads. They wrlthetT and twisted, each with llvoor six Inches of his length froo above her hands, and llnally just before Dot would hnvo put them back in tholr chest ono caught in hor hnlr. In pulling him loosoDot mny hnvo given, the big black rattler nit cxtnt squeezu nnd hurt III m. At nuy rate, while ho was closo toiler face, lio struck suddenly nnd fastened his teoth in heriloMi. His fangs mado two tiny holes just in front of her car. aud thu teoth In tho lower jaw Mruck undor tho curvu ot the cheek. Tho spectators heard her cry out. and saw hor pull hard to break tho rattler's hold. "Shu's hit!" thoy cried, ua Fhu dashod the snakes to tho floor und foil among them In n faint. The tlrst person to roach her was P. J. Ring, tho Staten Island wrestler. Ho and "Prof." V.. G. Johnson, nnothor employoo. car ried her tn tho dressing room while lluber sent forn doctor. Dot's cheek wns already swelling. Ring put his lips ovur the wound and sucked vigorously, wlillo Johnson got some whiskey. They gnvo her whiskey, und Ring kept up his sucking for tirtcon or twenty mlnute. Tlio doctor did not come, so Hubor cnlled u carriage nnd took Dot to the New York Hospital. The doctors thoro mado light d hur danger, although, be tween the effects ot tho swuliing and thn whiskey, sho wns unable even to talk. An hour aftorwnrd thoy said that Ring hnd saved her. and sho would get woll. Mean time Huburhiid sent to 'J.tXIO Third nvenue. where her babies ure. to seu that they should be eared for. Perhaps if Dot's husband had been working with her at the museum, ho would hnvo had the snakes in a safer condition. It Is not pos sible to takeout their fangs, snnko handlers assert, without killing tho Biiako, but their poison can bo drawn off. and it does not mako again fast enough fur thom tn be badly poisonous for several days. Ono wny of dolngthis is to stir up the snakes and letthom strike into a pioco nf meat. Indians used this method tn get thn poison for itrrow tips. Another way that is novel wn contrived by John Sonwell, while ho wan handling reptiles for Dr. C. S. Allen's experiments. Dr. Allen wanted the pure poison. Sonwell stretched muslin over tho mouth of a tumbler and lot thn snakos strike into tho muslin. Their fangs would ponetrnto tho cloth nnd tho poison would be squeezed out ot tho poi son bngs und equirtod in cleur streams Into the glass. Ho would gnthor a good-sized vial full from halt a dozen rattlesnakes. Dot was born somewtfero in Harlem, and hcrllrst bad fortuno was in thu choice that fate made for hor of n family to he born into. SI10 married John Sonwell. a snakn charmor. Two llttlo girls wero born to Dot. One. Dot Is 'J years old. and ttm othor. rlnrencc. only six months. Dot's later misfortunes began last April. Shn had learned to handle snakos nfter her mnrrlage. nnd wns showing nt Fall River in April. A moccasin lilt heron tho arm there and she was laid up forn month. In tho latror part of Juno hor hushuud. who wns handling some reptiles thnt Dr. Allen or 21 East Twenty eighth street was experimenting with, was bitten by a Gila monster. Ho left town last Saturday for Watorbury. Conn., where he Is performing this week, tlio hud had noenguge mont for two wueks.
