Party Wck.
' Columbia, & C, Deo. 18. In the house
to-day Mr. Maglll Introduced a con
' current resolution reciting that the gen
eral assembly desired to extend to
President Cleveland and the gentlemen
accompanying that courtesy due his
exalted character and official position,
and, therefore, Invited them to visit
the general assembly, now in session,
and accept the privileges of the floor of
the two house
Dr. Wych moved to receive the reso
lution as information.
Mr. Duncan, a reformer, said: "I am
opposed to extending such courtesy to
a president for whom we justly enter
tain so little respect. I move to table
the resolution.''
Mr. Manning, conservative, suggest
ed that the resolution be withdrawn.
Mr. Patton, conservative, said that
they should do Mr. Cleveland the honor
proposed, not because It was Mr. Cleve-
tend, - but of respect to his office as
Mr. Watson, the reform leader, and
Mr. Tatum, a prominent reformer, fa
vored the passage of the resolution.
The resolution was finally carried on
a viva voce vote. No nays were heard.
In the senate Dr. Byrd and one other
senator voted against the resolution,
but there was no discussion or any In
cident. At to-night's session of the house Mr.
Duncan brought the matter up again.
He introduced a resolution igned by
himself and J. H. Blackwell, which he
wanted spread on the minutes. The
resolution reads as follows:
, Resolved, That with all due respect
for the office of president of the United
States and with due deference to the
policies .and principles of parties we
wish "to be recorded as ready to do
honor to him to whom honor Is due,
but In our opinion Orover Cleveland,
. 'having prostituted the high office of
president of the United States In using
his .opportunities in ..theebetraya of the
. democratic party"' and repudiation of
democratic principles we record our
- selves - a opposed- too ther Resolution
passed by this house doing honor to tke
great and, greatest party wreck In the
history of American pontics."- .
On motion the resolution was tabled,
three nays being heard.
Later Mr. Duncan rose to a question of
personal privilege. Ee declared that,
according to the constitution, he had a
right to have his resolution put on
The speaker, however, ignored Mr.
Duncan's request to have ,the resolution
recorded and said the house had acted
on the matter.
That ended the Cleveland sensation.
Objections Hade the Banking Bill In the
' Hons.
Washington, Dec 18. Mr. Johnson of
Indiana, a republican member of the
banking and currency committee, to
day urged Speaker Crisp to permit de
bate on the banking bill to continue
until January 9, The speaker replied
that debate under the Ave minute rule
should close January 7, which would be
the fifth legislative day after the recess
and which, together with, four or five
days of this week, 'ought to be sufficient
time In which to permit members to ex
press their views fully.
Mr. Johnson was Informed that the
committee on rules would bring In a
special order fixing a time limitation on
the debate and this order might be re
ported, to-morrow or certainly before the
close of the week. Mr. Johnson says
that If the order provides for a vote on
the seventh proximo the republicans
will oppose it as not furnishing them
sufficient time in which to present their
objections to the bill. .
- Mr. Johnson states that the entire re'
publican, minority, so far aa he can
judge, will oppose the passage of the
bill without regard to the amendments
which may be adopted.

Tmneaoted Last Nlhi.
The police commissioners' meeting
last evening was unusually sensational,
the special feature of the session being
the trial of Patrolman Richard H.
Werner, charged with gross neglect of
duty and conduct unbecoming an officer.
All the commissioners were present and
Mayor Sargent presided. The charges
against the officer set forth that he bad
been caught In a compromising posi
tion In a Union street hallway with a
woman who is known to the police as
Minnie Colter.. The officer pleaded not
guilty. N
Sergeant McBrlde was the officer who
caught the patrolman and was the only
witness against him. Nearly all the
evidence was of such a character as to
be absolutely unfit for publication.
Patrolman Werner absolutely denied
the charges against him, and brought
in as witnesses in his behalf Minnie
Colter and Walter Cook of 821 State
street. The latter's testimony had but
little bearing on the case, and his ex
amination was exceedingly brief.-
When the woman was put upon the
stand to give her evidence the members
of the board decided to hear It in. exec
utive session. Later it was ascertained
that her testimony consisted of a gen
eral denial of the statement that she
was in any compromising position with
the officer on the morning Iri question.
After the testimony had all been heard
the members of the board considered" it
at length, and finally decided that Of
ficer Werner had been proved guilty of
both oharges, and he was summarily
dismissed from the force.
Officer Henry J. Hoffman asked for
pay for twenty-nine days lost iri-ebnse-quence
of injuries received while mak
ing an arrest on West street November
19. ' Pour men jumped upon "him and
he waB severely injured. - The matter,
was referred to the finance-committee,
consisting of Commissioners Hunn and
Gilhuly, to Inquire Into and report.
Ths is in accordance, with the rule to
that effect adopted at-the last meeting
of the board.
The report of the board of police sur
geons .In reference to the case, of Pa
trolman William JEL Nichols was j-e-oslvdThe-ip.!--sted..t!iat'
he was
permanently disabled,, ana was Signed
by all four members of the board.''. The
report was accepted and on motion of
Commissioner Clancey Patrolman Nich
ols was permanently retired at a salary
of $500 per annum, the-date of the re
tirement to be January 1. The retire
ment was made at the officer's request.
In executive session the board ap
pointed Thomas H. Doughaa to per-
manent duty In the department, vice
Werner, dismissed. Doughari Is at pres
ent a supernnumerary on duty at Pbll'i
Wonderland theater. He will do duty
at station No. 3.
The board also voted to transfer Pa
trolman Owen L. Marlowe At his own
request from police headquarters to
station No. S, and Patrolman Klaiber
and John McQueeney from station No.
3 to police headquarters.

Be and Asoelnte Deride They Will do
to Jail.
Chicago, Dec. 18. President Debs and
his associates at a long conference held
this morning decided to go ,to jail and
ervehe terms Imposed uflen them by
Judge WoodV withbut making any ef
fort to secure a habeas corpus or an
appeal. ....
This action was taken directly against
the advice of their lawyers, who even
now Insist that they , will t ry. to, tret
the appeal. Debs gave.-as his' reason
for ;thla,sudden..jhange pf front that
he . and tttile other direis ' have no
confidence in the courts and believe
they would not get a fair show -there.
"We thought It was better," he said,
"to serve' out th terms at once. We
will get through ail the quicker and we
think we would certainly tolave them to
serve in any case." -
All the prisoners will go to the Cook
county Jail, 'notwithstanding the fact
that Judge Woods ruled,, that they could
have their choice of jails. ' -
Another conference was held to-nigthlt'
at which K was decided to push the
case to Its legal -termination, although
the defendants have no hope of victory,
This will be done so that tihe higher
courts may go on record. In the mean
time Monday being the expiration of
the stay of execution granted by Judge
Woods they will go to jail.
Judge Lyman Trumbull was in con'
ference with 'other counsel this morn
ing ana agreed wltn tne-m that no
court would be likely to reverse the
decision. T!h method of procedure
will probably be by an application for
a writ of habeas corpus. This being

The Rev. Edward McGlynn has made

himself the ban of excommunication
from the Roman Catholic church. His
penitential season, which began De

bishop Corrlgan will soon put him in
oharge of a parish.
The statements were made yesterday
by a friend of Dr. McGlynn. They will
be a surprise to Catholics, to the fol
lowers of the anti-poverty doctrines,
and to the world at large, because the
priest, even after a remittance of the
ban of exclusion and a partial restora

the culmination of quarrels of many
years' standing.
But, All the Snuie, It Was th Cause of
100,000 Damage to the Kncmy.
IKrom the Courier Journal.
A well known riverman who lives in
Jeffersonvllle recollects this story of the
war: "Its a Joke," he said, "but it cost
the Confederacy a cool $100,000. The
Confederates had sunk and captured
the Federal monitor Indlanola at the
head of Hurricane island, some few
miles belowVlcksburg. It was at the
time the navy was attempting to run
the Vlcksburg batteries. . A lieutenant
of artillery with a squad of men In
charge of the boat, had been left while
they sent back to Red river for assis
tance to raise the vessel. In the mean
time the Joke was planned. Who the
originator was is not known, but Ad
miral Porter received the, credit.
"A bogus ram was built. .On an enor
mous raft was 'built a superstructure
that resembled a terrible ironclad
Fence rails and boards, were used to
make an Imitation Ironclad case-mate
gunboat. 'Guns' protruded from the
ports and pork barrels stacked served
for chimneys. Underneath them a
hearth of earth had been made. Fires
were built of fuel whloa made the .black
est of smoke. "Without engines, gun, or
crew this bugaboo was set' adrift a few
miles above Vlcksburg. On came the
'monster.' Within an hour It .had
reached the city. Clouds of smoke
rolled out of its chimneys, and as it
was just breaking day, the time when
both sides anticipated an attack, the
Confederate gentries deted'jl the dem
on:'; There was a'hurrji'fijig.and skurry
Ing,' but not a shot brolte, the stillness
until the dummy had reached a point-
blank range. Vlcksburg will never be
awakened by such another noise. It
lasted an ' hour. Shots raked it and
hulled it, but it still floated defiantly.
At last the current swept It nearer to
the shore. Then the besiegers read In
rudely made letters on one side: 'Secesh
sold;' on the other side were the letters:
Confederate States Mall Packet.'
"In the mean time the discharge of
artillery had warned the lieutenant In
charge ot the Indlanola that the 'hour
for action was at hand. In his Imag
ination the lieutenant saw gunboats ga
lore belching forth death and destruc
tion. He would not permit the enemy
to recapture the Indlanola. Hastily
placing all the powder, he had in the
turrets of the monitor he applied a slow
match and retreated. Only a few mo
ments elapsed and all that remained
above decks of the Ironclad was a mass
of debris) About the time the dreaded
'gunboat' came sailing by and ran onto
a sand bar a short distance below.
"The Indlanola could have been raised
by the Confederates, and would have
been a formidable vessel in their hands
had not the lieutenant been so hasty in
destroying .her. She . was armed with
two 11-inch and two 9-inch Columblads,
two of which were destroyed. The oth
er two were recovered and taken up
Red river." , ..-'. ,
