STEEL ARMOR PLATE TESTS.
"Most Remarkable Event la Entire
Rccord of Ordnance Matters."
Secretary Tracy and Commodore Folger re
turned to the Navy Department this morning
from their trip to Annapolis to witnesa the tests
of the three steel armor plates which took
place yesterday. The Secretary expressed him
self as highly pleased with the thoroughness of
the experiment* and said that in hia opinion it
was the most remarkable event in the entire
record of ordnance matters. There were twelve
shots fired, four at each plate, from a six-inch
gun made for this purpose.
SLPEBIOBITY OV the FRENCH PLATES
The testa demonstrated the superiority of the
French Creusot method of treating steel and of
the fallibility of the English compound plate.
The all-steel French plate was nncracked, hav
ing caused two of the projectiles to rebound with
out injury, leaving holes of from 9 to 14 inches
in ylepth. The French nickol steel plate broke
two^of the shells aud was uucracked. It seemed
to develop greater tenacity than the other.
THE ENGLISH PLATE DESTBOVED.
The English %*mnull compound plate was
dostroyed. The fourth shot developed cracks
throughout the metal, penetrated the plate and
butt and sealed off 900 pounds of steel from the
face. Next Monday shots will be fired, In order
to complete the conditions of the test, at the
center of each plate from an 6-inoh rifle.

, BANKRUPTCY DISCUSSED IN SENATE.
SKNATE.
Mr. Blair introduced on behalf of the W. C.
T. U. a bill to prohibit tho manufacture or ?ale
of spirituous liquors in tho territories. Re
ferred.
TO AMEND THE BANKRUPTCY BILL.
Mr. Flumb's resolution to recommit tho
bankruptcy bill to the judiciary committee
with instructions to amend it by making it
apply to voluntary bankruptcy only was taken
Mr. Hoar asked Mr. Piumb to withdraw tho
resolution. The bill had been very carefully
prepared, and when it came beforo the Senate
a motion could be mado to strike out the in
voluntary clause of it. The two things were
not mingled at all. He had not expected the
mil to be ta.>c-n up at this session; but if there
10 . ? any discussion of it he should bo
obliged to take up two or three hours of the
tune of the Senate.
MR. l'LUMB'8 two reasons.
Mr. i lumb said that he had offered tho reso
lution for two reasons. One was that he was
utterly opposed to the principle of involuntary
bankruptcy; and tho other was that he did not
wish to have any bankruptcy bill passed at this
session. He understood that an association of
wholesale dealers had spent a good deal of
money in efforts to have the bill passed, and
that fact indicated that the bill was not in the
interest of the people of tho United States, but
in the interest of a class of persons whom it
wouid enable to put a clutch on the throat of
all the business ot a small kind carried on in
the luited States.
Mr. Cullom remarked that he had had letters
thismorning from two of the most prominent
business tnen of Chicago asking that the bill bo
not passed at the present sesaiou.
Mr. Plumb said that he had also had a dis
patch from the leadiug commercial bodv of
Kansas t ity recalling tho consent heretofore
given by u to the bill. H
MtCESMTY FO* TIIK NATIONAL BANKRUPTCY IULL.
Mr. Hoar spoke of the necessity of a national
bankruptcy bill. There were, he said, from
150,000 to 250.000people in the UnitedSlafes who
woro on their limbs the fetters of indebtedness,
winch they could onlv escape from by the
operation of a national bankruptcv law Hut
it was absolutely impracticable to have a na
tional bankruptcy law that dealt with voluiitarv
casos alone. He believed that a bankruptcy
system could be contriveil that would
onord almost absolute, certainly adequate, se
curity against a repetition of tho evils of tho
ormer law. Ho did not wish a bankruptcy
bill to be passed as a party measure or as a
sectional measure. He believed that tho pass
age, with the assent of the representatives of
the west and south, of a moderate, safe. iust.
reasonable system would have a healing and
fertilizing effect on the whole countrv, and
that such a system would, within three "years,
reduce tho rate of interest, where it is now 10,
12 ,or 14 per cent, to 3, 4 or o per cent.
MR. rLUML 9 RESOLUTION PUT ON THE CALEN
DAR.
After farther discussion Mr. riumb's reso
lution was placed on the calendar without ac
tion, Mr. Hoar stating that he would not osk
its consideration at this session or at anv time
when the Senate was not thought to be full
enough to enable both its frieSiis and its op
ponents to have it fully considered.
INCREASE OF SILVER MONEY

for an immediate increase of silver money.

HOUSK.
After prayer by the chaplain. Mr. O'Ferrall
(Va.) suggested that there wa? no quorum pres
ent, but the Speaker was able to count one.
and the clerk proceeded to read the journal
Mr. Oates (Ala.), Mr. O'Ferrall and Mr. Criap
were the only democrats in their eeata.
**. CRISP WANTS TBI JOURNAL AMENDED.
The journal having been read, Mr. Crisp ob
jected to its approval and asked that it be
?mended in one particular. Yesterday, when
1I--- -T WY ?P?r?tin? tiudcr a cell, a quorum I
appeared and the Speaker had directed the 1
clerk to call the roll on the Langston-Venable
case, He (Mr. Cri*p) had objected and had
nude the point of order that it *h not in
order to proceed with tho roll calL The
S'prnkrr fcnd sustained th? objection. The
journal contained no record of tins deciaion of
the Speaker. He moved that the journal be
amended by inserting it.
?'SO QUORUM."
Mr. Dingley (.Mo.) moved to lay the amend
ment on the table.
On a rising vote this motion was carried?
yeag, 140; nays, 2. and Mr. Crisp raised tho
point of no quorum.
Mr. Cannon (III.) called tho attention of the
Speaker to the fact that there were a number
of republicans present who. ou account of
being paired, had not ari?cn in their places.
Mr. Crisp?Why not have a roll call?
A republican member demanded the yeas
and navs; but his demand was drowned in
deprecating cries from his republican Col
leagues.
Mr. Crisp?Yes; that would disclose how
many there are here.
THE SPEAKER'S COUNT CHALLENGED.
The Speaker counted 161 members present?
a quorum.
Mr. Crisp challenged the correctness of tho
count. He dut this with the utmost respect for
tho Speukcr and with tho utmost sincerity.
When members were moving around and call
ing out ''one more"' the Speaker was liable to
err. He asked the Speaker, in the exercise of
the power lodged in him, to order tellers to
verify the count.
The Speaker said that he had taken great
pains in tho count, aud had no doubt about its
correctness.
Mr. Buchanan (N.J.)?Bring in your men
and order tellers.
A DOZEN DEMOCRATS IS TITE LOBBY.
The Speaker said that he was informed by
tho doorkeepers that there were a dozen dem
ocrats in the lobby.
Mr. Crisp retorted that there was no provis
ion of the rules under which the door keepers
could count a quorum.
The Speaker declared that tho yeas had it.
and that the aiuendmeut was laid upon the
table.
Mr. Crisp?Docs the chair decline to order
tellers?
'ihc Speaker?The chair does.
MB. CHEADLE IUixe IS PROTEST,
but his voice was drowned in a chorus of de
mands for the 'Tegular order" frotn the repub
licans.
Mr. McKinley (Ohio) hoped that the gentle
man would be permitted to sav a word.
The Speaker coincided in this hope, but Mr.
Ftinston (Kan.) interposed a strenuous objec
tion.
But above the din Mr. Chcadlc was heard to
declare that when the correctness of the count
was questioned tellers should bo appointed.
There should bo no doubt about the correct
ness of the count
The Speukcr stated that the question was on
the approval of the journal and tho vote being
taken resulted-ayes, 162; nays, 2.
Mr. Crisp raised the point of no quorum.
'1 ho Speaker replied that Mr. De Haven
(C'at.) was present, but had not voted. This
g< ntleman. together with the Speaker, made
1C6 members present, although the Speaker
whs of the opinion that 1G4 members consti
tuted a quorum.
MIL CRISP AOAIS CHALLENOED
the correctness of the count.
The Speaker said that he had twice carefully
counted the House, but as gentlemen other
than members were admitted to the floor the
Speaker might have fallen into error, and the
Speaker would, therefore, order tellers.
Mr. McKinley thought that the Speaker
should do so even though a hundred members
of the other side
absented themselves is order to obstruct
BUSINESS.
Mr. Crisp said the republicans must have a
quorum of their own members wheu they de
sired to turn out a duly elcctcd liepruaeututivo
of the people.
mr. m'kinley replied
that by a simple nod the gentlemun from Geor
gia could bring in enough democratic votes to
order tellers. But the Speaker was right in
ordering tellers when his count was questioned.
THE SPEAKER SAID
that D3 matter what the conduct of gentlemen
who were obstructing legislation (if they were
obstructing it) might be it was desirable that
no mixtuko bo tuadu iu the couut Notwith
standing what might be thought by the House
and the country of the acts which caused it to
be done he would order tellers.
TILI.ERS TO COCST THE HOTSE.
Mr. McKinley and Mr. Crisp were appointed
tollers to couut tho House.
A RAT11ER AMUSIS1 INCIDENT
occurred as the teller i took their places. Mr.
Holman (Ind.) wag about to leave the hall
when he was spied by the Speaker, who. in a
loud tone, directed the tellers to count tho gen
tleman from Indiana.
Mr. Holman then turned and, amid laughter
aud applause, passed between the tollers.
THE SPEAKER COL'STED RIOHT.
After waiting quarter of an hour the tellers
announced the presence of 104 members.
MR. CRISP SATS 104 AUE NOT A QUORUM.
Mr. Crisp made the point of ordor that, not
withstanding the four vacancies existing in the
House. 1C4 members did nat constitute a
quorum.
In the course of his argument ho referred to
the decision made at the beginning of the war
of the secession; whereupon the Speukcr sug
gested soto voce that there was a necessity lor
a similar decision now.
MR. CRISP RETORTED
that he was arguing a serious matter and would
not notice side-bar and undignilied remarks.
Mr. Houk (Tenn.) (reforring to the desertion
Of the democratic side) said that it was
A FAMILIAR REPfcTITION OK HECEHSION.
Mr. Crisp said that he would not go into the
question of secession with the gentleman
from Tennessee. That was a long way behind
hint.
Mr. Houk retorted that ho was referring to
tho present secession.
Mr. Crisp thought tfiat it was sufficient to
reply that the absent members believed that
when the majority had given notice that it was
goiug to unseat uu fleeted member that inu
jorjty must have a quorum.
The point of order was discussed bv Mr.
C.rosvenor (Ohio), Mr. Holman (Ind.) and Mr.
Bellly (P?).
The speaker's DEcision on the quorum ques
tion.
The Speaker premised his decision with the
reservation that if after careful examination
he would tind procedent in opposition to it he
would not adhere to it
Tho chair hid a distinct recollection that
Speaker ltundall had held that a quorum was
a inajoritv of the living members, but he could
not tind the decision iu the journal.
The decision of Speaker Grow in 1861 did not
appear, on examination, to go so far as tho
chair and some members had thought, it only
went to the extent of saying that u majority of
those members originally chosen would con
stitute a quorum of the House. The question
as to whether a majority of those sworn in
should constitute a quorum had been left in
abeyance. All previous decisions had been
that a quorum must consist of a majority of
thoso that might have been chosen.
The only hesitancy on the part of the chair
was his recollection of tho opinion of Speaker
lUndall. Nevertheless the chair did not think
that any doubtful decision ought to be made
and would thoreforo adhere to the rulo that
OHM HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SIX MEMBERS CONSTI
TUTED k QUORUM.
A call of the House was therefore ordered
And as a few democrats entered the chamber
the presence of 170 members was disclosed.
THE JOURNAL APPoVED.
The Speaker announced the question to b?
oa the approval of the Joarnal, and it tu ap
proved.
THE DEMOCRATS AOAIX RETIRE.
The question recurred on ordering the prev
ious question on the Langston-Venable case.
The democrats then retired, only Messrs.
O'Ferrall, Crisp, Reilly, Holman and
Parrott remaining in their seats. The

The President today issued the following
proclamation:
To whom it may concern: Whereas, it has
been represented to me that, by reason of the
drought which has prevailed in the Indian
territory nnd in the adjoining states,
the execution of my proclamation ot February
I 17. 1890, requiring the removal of ail live Mock
from the Cherokee outlet ou or before October
1 would work great hardship and loss not only
to the owners of stock herded on tho strip
bnt to the owQers of cattle in the adjoining
states, and
Whereas, the owners of allcittle now herded
upou the outlet have submitted to me a propo
sition in writing whereby they ajirec to remove
one half of their stock from "the outlet ou or
before November 1 and the residue thereof
and all their property and employes on or be
fore December 1 next, and abandon all claims
in said outlet.
Now. therefore. I. Benjamin Harrison, Presi
dent of the United States, do give notice and
proclaim that the time heretofore fixed for
the removal of the live stock herded upon
said outlet is extended to November 1 as to
one-hulf thereof and to December next as to
the residue thereon and as to ail property and
employes.

ing lias been intensified by the late war between

fact that niaiiv towns iu Honduras are cndcav- i
oring to annex themselves to Nicaragua and
that many prominent military men from Ilou
