ary ia April.
WASHISQTO* Ciry, April ti—The Dem
ocratic managers of the house have de
cided that the time ha* come when some
effective m-tnod should be adopted to
force the Republicans to participate in
legislation. I>uring the last congress and
during the recent congress the Republicans
have on frequent occasions deadlocked
the house for days by refusing to answer
their names, thus breaking a quorum.
There was no ru!e to compel them to vote,
and «s the speaser declined to adopt the
method of counting a quorum without thf
authorisation of a rule, the house was con
stantly at the mercy of the minority. For
the last few daya the Republicans have
blocked business, and there was a wide
spread belief on the Democratic side that
tbts was in pursuance of a pre-concerted
arrangement with the Republicans at the
senate end of the capitoi to delay all busi
ness with a view to postponing action on
the tariff bill. It was intimated that a
quorum would hereafter be demanded not
only for partisan measures, but on the
routine business of the house.
Under such a stress of circumstances
Speaker Crisp. Catching and Outhwaite,
comprising the Democratic end of the
committee on rules, decided tbia morning
that the time had come to act. A resolu
tion embodying a new rule designed to
tine members slofor refusing to vote was
prepared and presented. When the house
met the Democrats were by no means
unanimous in their approval of it.
While the general sentiment of
the house favored some modification
of the rules to accomplish the pur
pose desued, a wide difference of
opinion existed as to what that modifica
tion should be. Tba Democrats today
were unable t« muster a quorum to act on
the new rule, finding themselves un
able to proceed, a resolution was offered to
revoke leaves of absence and compel the
attendance of absentee*. By a resort te
every means known to parliamentary law
the Republicans succeeded in preventing
tbe adoption ot tbia order for six hours
and a half. Tomorrow the atrnggle will
be resumed. It maybe that the Demo
cratic opposition to the new rule as drawn
will result in its modification or poaaibiy
a complete substitution of some other
method to prevent filibustering, bnt there
is no doubt that when the present struggle
is over the winn of the filibusters will
be clipped and a new e>rder of things will
be invoked in the honsa
As soon as the journal had fceen read
the speaker recognised Catchings, from the
committee on rules, to present a report.
Burrows and Keed attempted to delay
matters, raising the point of order of BO
quorum, but the speaker tamed his head
and refused to recognize them. The report
submitted by the committee on rales was
to amend the rules to the effect that ev»ry
member should be in the hall of the house
during a sitting unless excused or neces
sarily prevented, and shall rote on each
question unless he has a direct personal or
pecuniary interest in such question. Fail
ure to comply with th»rule is punish*
able by a tine of $lO. Reed attempted
to get the tloor, but the speaker would
not hear, and the vote on the previous
question wss ordered, resulting 90 to ft.
Burrows demanded the yeas and nays on
a point of no quorum. The Republicans
refused to rote, as did eleven Democrats,
Oeary of California being one of the eleven,
and the Forulists voting with the Demo
crate. The vote stood 141 to 11, showing
the Democrats to be 37 short of a quorum.
On motion of Catchings a call of the house
was ordered. Under the rules a motion
was made to exense Hall. The motion to
excuse was lost. M to 1(15.
Catchings ot Mississippi was recognised
to offer a resolution, but when it was
read I.acey claimed the floor to
move a reconsideration of the vote
just taken. Reed contended that
the motion to reconsider under the
rules took precedence of all motions.
Richardson, who was ih the chair, directed
the clerk to read the resolution, which
j proved to be a resolution revoking all
leaves of absence except on account of
sickness, and directing the sergeaot-at
arms to request the attendance of some
absentees by telegraph. Both Reed and
j Bouteile jumped to their feet when the
reading ot the resolution was completed
and made the point of order that it did
not take preoedence over a motion
to reconsider. Catchings argued
j that the adoption of the resolution
would terminate further proceedings
under the call, and must therefore take
precedence of a motion to reconsider,
«eii h was a part of such proceedings.
The debate over the point of order con
tinued for over an hour, the giants on both
side* crossing swords. At the conclusion
of the debate Richardson, who was in the
chair, saal that white it was competent to
enter a motion to reconsider, a previous
rr .tion having been made in the form of
| fait lung's resolution the latter took
I ot the motion to reconsiler at a suo
| *eq lent period. lie therefore sustained the
point of order. Th.s had the effect of
j making the resolution the pending ques
i tiori. iht-n there followed a senea of <lUa
tory motions, but finady the vote was
taken on the demand of the prev.ous
question on the resolution to revoke
; leaves of absence and telegrams for ab
| sec tees, an 1 it was ordered, 112 to 38.
Reed made the point of no quorum. The
!iair overruled the point ot or ler. Bou
teile moved to adjourn. Lost. T.'ie reso
lution *as then agreed to, and at 6:30 the
house adjourned.

necessity which are used by the

would rest chiefly on those who were able
to bear it. it* defended the Coxey army
and outlined his plsn for the amelioration
of the condition uf the people. Rererring
to the approaching array he exclaimed, in !
the language of Israel of old, "We are
here, Father Abraham; the vanguard is j
now bound.'* (Laughter.] He referred
to the entrance into Washington
City last Saturday night of a band
of forty men, who were immediately
arrested without having committed any
offen*e. "They had as much right to
come here as the president of the New
ork Central Railroad Company or any
other citizen." As congress was not
bound down to such restrictions, he con
tinued, he would insist upsn congrena
passing a bili obliging the president to j
provide employment for ail the men and
women of tne country. It wouid not be
in the way of buiidmg good roads, for he
thought that a special province of the
aiate. His plan would be to set them to
buuding a straight doub.e-track railroad
from the Atlantic to the Pacific aud An
other troni the Great Lakes to the Gulf.
Then the dark clouds wouid roll away and
dissipate as the morning mist.
"I am now pleading with you manu
facturers," he said, earnestly, turning to
the Republican side, "to be fair with us.
If yoa demand protection against goods
which come into competition with yours,
give us those protective duties which we
ask for."
Galhnger inquired whether hefTeffer)
believed that the manufacturers could con
tinue on a tree trade basis.
"I am not looking after the manufactur
ing interests."' said Puffer. "I am iooking
after the tuen of the West and South. Kan
sas can stand free trade better than the {
people you represent."
He went on to argue for a duty on wool ■
and free sugar, wheu Gallinger assured I
him that the people of New Kncland were I
with him on tiiese two qifcstions. and he !
thought tbey were with him on all bis j
reasonable demands.
"And whatever we ask of New Engiand I
which you do not want to give you call j
unreasonable?" replied Mr. Petfer.
At 5 o'clock Fetter had not finished, and
according to the agreement the tariff bill
was laid aside and the urgency deficiencies
taken up. An amendment to the clause
for paying special assessments to the
United States attorneys, changing the
amount from $30,000 to $40,340 of which
$10,340 should be available for deficiencies
for the years 1882 and 1883, was agreed to.
At 6 o'clock the senate adjourned without
further action on the bill.

It Always Does In April, Heaee No
Alarm le JTett.
WAAHISOTOS CITT. April 12.— The secre
tary of tbe treasury received notice today
that aboat 12,000,000 in gold coin would be
required for export next Saturday, about
haif of which would be drawn from the
treasury and an equal amount from the
New York banks. It ia the opinion of the
treasury officials that this shipment is the
beginning of the usual spring exporta
tion and shipments are likely to
continue for some time. This fact, how
ever, is not regarded as a cause for alarm.
The net gold in the treasury at tbe close of
business today was $105,363,539. Last year
at this time the gold asportations were
abnormally heavy, reaching sl(fel, 143,963
during April and 116,914,315 in May. In
June they dropped to $2,711,226 and in
July to $174,212. The financial and
business conditions in Europe as well
as the United States have materially
changed for tbe better, and in consequence
of this tke prediction is confidently made
that the exportationa will reach only a
fraction of what they were one year ago.
England and France are now well snpplied
with gold, ahd Russia is not now a buyer.
Austria is tbe only European nation that
is making any special effort to secure gold,
and with these condltiona prevailing the
outlook is not bad.
The first serious loss to our gold supply
occurred early in the present month, when
about $700,000 in go d was paid out in San
Francisco, principally on account of pen
sious. Since that time there has been a
gradual recovery, so that our net receipts
from the sale of bonds had restored the
$100,000,000 gold reserve and ovsr about
The treasury officials state in positive
terms that a second bond issue is not in
contemplation. Indeed, it is believed to
be extremely doubtful whether an issue of
any considerable sue could now be placed
on the same terms as tbe recent is
sue. It was atth extreme difficulty
that Mr. Carlisle succeeded in arous
lag the New York bankers to the
importance of making tbe last issue a
success, and it is believed ne would
scarcely undertake a similar ts*k except
In the event of a great With
authority to issue short time low rate
bonds, the diificulty in a measire, it is be
lieved, would be obviated, but no such
authority is expected from this con
gress, therefore the exportation* will
necessarily have to be drawn from the
gold reserve. On Janusry 31 last this re
serve bad decreased to $».7,«0 oO>, an l it is
believed it will a*a:n be suffered to reach
this point snd even a lower one before an
other bond issue will t>e attempted.

S*ir L*x*. April 12. -A special to the
Trib*n* ftom Cheyenne, says: Kelley'a
contingent of Coxey's army took breakfast
at Piedmont, east of Evanaton, this morn
ing, aud then proceeded Eaat. Many of
them had blankets around them to ward
off the cold. They captured a freight train
about 10 o'clock last night. It was
useless to resist them, and after
consultation the trainmen agreed
to haul them to the end of the
diviaion. At Evanston the mayor pre
sented tbem six dressed beeves and a
quantity ot other provisions. The Union
I'acitic officials have decided to hurry the
men along to the Missouri river without
stopping at any of the pftnclpal towns
along the line, where there might be dan
ger of the men committing depredations.
About an iuch of snow fell last
night, and th* men are scantily clad
and suffering from cold. The tram
reached <»reen River at noon and stopped
weat of the bridge, a here more provisions
were iurmshed. The tram arrived at Kaw
hns at Bo'clocK tonight where the mayor
met them with more provisions and the
train then proceeded to Fort tkeeie, where
* stop waa made for supper. Break
fast wiil be furnished them to
morrow by the cilixena of Laramie, and
they will arrive in Cheyenne about noon
and will ite stopped live miles west of the
city, where Mayor Staple and the cite
marshal are preparing to aupply them
with food. No trouble ia anticipated dur
ing the transit through Wyoming. They
will not be permuted to accept the Invita
tion of Gov. Waite to visit Colorado.
OMAHA, April 12.—The Omaha board of

LOVELOCKS, Nev., April 12.— That por
tion of the Industrial Army which left
Reno yesterday commenced arriving here
today in squads of about twentv. They
came in every few hoars, and by midnight
there were lM tramps camped in this lit
tle town. The cituens are making prepa
rations to feed them, but it is a severe tax
to do so, as the army outnumbers the
townspeople. From information received
here tonight towns along the railroad may
expect an influx of the army at the rate of
thirty a day for several weeks to come.
SALT LAKS, April 12.—The Utah Na
tional Guard returned from the north this
afternoon. Tbey marched up from the

and spoke, thanking them for their effi
cient services and complimenting them for
their loyalty. Then he dismissed thsm to
their homes.

Chai.k Htth, Pa.. April 12. Coxey's
army started reluctantly on ita walk of
twelve miles through the snow. At noon
they stopped at Somerfield and will camp
at Petersburg tonight. Ihe army will
cross the line into Maryland Friday. The
Commonwealers' march from Cniontown
to this point was one of tha most trying
yet experienced. There was a driving snow
storm. with a foot of snow on the ground.
At times it was necessary to send attach

commissary wagon.
Appiso*. Pa., April 12.- -Tha tramp
from Chalk Hill to this placa was one of
great suffering in the Commonweal.
While the storm hsd slated some. tha
deep snow made walking hard, and rests
were tsken frequently. They were many
mountaineers here to view the Common

tonight. Mountain dew has been flowing
