At that hour there was n call for a quorum and about in o'clock Senator Burton, who had had an hour's sleep and breakfast, resumed He seemed In good form, though his voice was husky ' "The" whole Senate was In a bad tm- ' per. The advocates of the hill were still bent on holdinc the Stfmte in session until a vote couhj be forred ind motion1' to adjourn were' repeatedly voted down. Whenever It was r'sflble durlnir the lanp and exhausting session the flllbus- ters demanded a quorum call and the speakers enjoyed brief rests Several times calls for a quorum failed to de velop a. sufficient number of Senators and a squad of deputv sertfrant-at-arm bearinp; writs of arrest were sent out In ' ta.xlcabs to brine In the absentees.

Senator Burton spoke slowly durlns the long hours of the nlRht, evidently savlnc his strength. He soon discarded his frock coat and pot Into an alpaca Jacket, and renlaced his shoes for bedroom slip pers. In this costume he plodded up and down, pointer In hand, before a number of maps to which he now and then re ferred. , JThe determined effort to wear Burton aTid his friends out was best Illustrated Just after Burton surrendered the floor temporarily at S o'clock tnte morninc He was attempting to set over to his office for a nap when arrested by a deputy serveant-at-arms, and haled before the Senate to help constitute a quorum.

HIS OCCUPATION GONE, PRINCE OSKAR'S CHEF BEGINS LAND VOYAGE KNIGHT TEMPLARS ON WAY TO PRAY' FOR PEACE Adorned With Trophies From Fatherland, Joseph Westermeir Starts on Long Deferred Visit to Brother in Ohio. " .SENATOR WILLIAMS WHISTLES. In the Interval between the call for a quorum and the completion of the call, the chamber was practically deserted. Senator Ashurst. who occupied the chair, was forced at one time to call Senator Williams to order because he whistled, "How Dry T am" in the chamber. Senator Burton forced a vote on a mo tion to recommit the bill with instruc tions to strike out many of the items. The vote showed 11 to 7 against the motion- to-recommit. . ". ! After Senator' Kenyon took the floor this. morning, he forced a call for a quorum and during the wait Senator ' KanXdell proposed that the Uergeant-at-arms be directed to request the attend ance of all Senators nou out of the city, as the earlier orders hart applied only to those In the city Senator Kenyon en deavored to ha.ve en amendment Inserted excepting tnos senators wno are en gaged in political campaigns The nans Joseph Westermeler, the chef-ln-chlef aboard the steamship Prlnz Osknr, quit the ship today. He Is going to visit a brother In Hoyts vllle, Ohio. He has not seen the brother for ears because the chief was too busy to make calls in the States so far from the seaboard. The Prinz Oskar has her mud anchors out near the League Island navy yard. Being a German liner with a decidedly Teutonic name, the Prlnz Oskar Is tak ing no chances by going to sea. The ofliceis and crew of the ship were hopeful of making a home port under tho protection of a German gunboat. DODGCS BRITISH WARSHIPS. Then came the news that the Essex and other cruisers of the British navy were picking up German ships. The Prinz Oskar sailed down the river then and cast her mud hook' under the friendly guns of the navy ard. There were no passengers on the Prinz Oskai, no guests, and even the captain went on a vacation. What could a flrst class chef like Joseph Westermeler do? He made beef stews for the crew, but the scullery boy could do that. No one would complain or offer congratulations. It was then that the che of the Prlnz Oskar had a thought. He remembered that he had a brother. He searched his head and learned that the brother had a farm at Ho.UsvllIe. He started to Hoytsville today with a pocket tilled with American dollars nnd a few Bavarian coins to give as keep sakes. CHEF IN FULL VNIFORM. Chef Westermeler wore his ship's uni form with a few decorations. His belt was trimmed with prongs from tho antlers of deer. The buckle bore the picture of the late King Ludwig II, of Bavaria.

He longed to hear the pounding of the en- , glnes and he longed to get back to his , ovens and frying pans. There was no one aboard ship who tould appreciate his art.

ORANG-OUTANGS PASS CENSORSHIP AT ZOO Villa and Sylvia Declared Tree of Tubercular Ailment. Villa, of Borneo, and his mato Sylvia, tho orang-outangs purchased by the Zoo logical Garden a little less than two months ago, have now passed the health censor at the Zoo and are regular mem bers of society there. Although members of tho higher ape families are difficult to raise In this climate, authorities at the Zoo now believe that this pair will live at least Ave years. The animals were purchased from Louis Rhue, a Now York nnlmal dealer, who got them from the engineer and boatswain of a tramp steamship. They came to the local Zoo Juno 22, and were Immediately Isolated for observation. Such animals nro specially susceptible to tubercular Infection, but Dr. Herbert Fox, the Zoo pathologist, Is now assured that Villa nnd Sylvia are sound of lung, The orang-outangs will be placed on exhibition with the chimpanzee about Oc tober 1. Villa, the male, Is equipped with a coat of coarse red, brown and black hair, while Sylvia's coat Is of the same coloring, but finer. Superintendent Carson, of the Zoo, Is surrounding the pair with every safe guard to pievent a repetition of what happened at the Brcnx Zoo, In Now York, where the entire collection was wiped out by tuberculosis. In addition to being perfectly matched as to size, the ornngs are well mated and so far their domestic affairs have not been marred by a single "scrap." The exact sum paid for the pair has not been divulged, but is said to be high. Each animal Is two yenrs old. The formation of their hands and llnger-nalls compares well with th3 human hand.
