Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Dec. 30. —Gorman made
the point of no quorum when the
senate met today. The sergeant-at-arms
waa sent to secure the attendance of ab
sentees. It was 11 o'clock before a quo
rum was secured and the journal of yes
terday read.
The vice-president laid before the
senate the credentials of Frederick T.
Dubois, senator from Idaho, for the term
beginning March 4, 1801. Referred to
the committee on privileges and elec- i
Reagan gave notice of two amendments
to Aldrich'e cloture resolution.
The morning hour having expired, the
senate resumed consideration of the
elections bill.
Hoar resumed his speech of yester
day in advocacy of it. He reminded the
southern senators that they had pledged
their official oaths and honor as men
that they would give their devotion to \
the constitutional amendments, if they
were only let back into the old condi
tion of the union, free from the conse
quences of the rebellion, and now they
were denouncing those amendments.
He recalled the Capiah massacre in
Mississippi, the murder of Fred Mat
thews, and the burning of his widow's
house, and said that now that widow's
son, a Republican postmaster, had been
shot down in the streets of Carrol ton,
the home of Senator George. "How
long," exclaimed Hoar, "shall murder
of men because they are Republicans,
be only a crime to which Republicans
KM indifferent?"
In conclusion Hoar, addressing him
self directly to the southern senators,
told them that they had exhausted
every other policy and failed. "Now,
try justice."
"Wolcott made an animated speech
against the bill. It was, he said, a
source of great regret to him to be called
upon to differ with any considerable
number of his party, and to decline to
take the path older leaders pointed out.
But nearly one-third of the session was
through, and daylight was not yet visi
ble. There were before the senate meas
ures of vast importance that would fail
for another year at least unless now
acted upon. He mentioned the silver
bill, the apportionment, pure food,copy
right, and private land court bills. But
it was not only because these measures
were clamoring for recognition that he
felt compelled to oppose the elections
bill. If the session were to last indefi
nitely, and none of these vital measures
were pending, he would still vote against
it. The pending bill should not become
a law, because it involved federal inter
ference and espionage at other than na
tional elections, and such interference
was contrary to the spirit of American
institutions, and an obstacle to the right
of American liberty.
The people of the United States,
"Wolcott said, wanted no more civil
strife, and it would be impossible to en
force such a law against the united op
position of the white population of the
southern states. The attempt would
bring back the old days of terrorizing,
and the weaker race would be the suf
ferers. There were other things more
important and vital to the welfare of
the nation than that the colored citizens
of the south should cast ballots.
Referring to the question put by
Fastis to Dolpb recently as to what the
people of Oregon would do under similar
circumstances it' Chinese voters were in
the majority, Wolcott said Dolpb's
answer seemed evasive. He (Wolcott)
could not speak for Oregon, but be gave
it ac his solemn opinion that in Color
ado, if such a state of affairs existed,
and the Chinese vote was opposed to the
united and intelligent white vote, the
white vote in some way and by some
method wouid govern. [Democratic
If cougress did not foment trouble, tbe
time would surely come when the white
voters of the south would be hardly a 9
unanimous as now. The signs of tbe
times pointed to serious differences
among them, and when those differences
became solidilied, the colored voter
would be in demand. If the Republi
cans had every southern member of
the next house, they would still
be shortly of a majority. Two
years from now, when the beneficent
tariff law had time to demonstrate its
wisdom, they would not need the assis
tance of the southern Republican repre
sentation which the bill sought to give.
But there was ant ther and weightier
reason why it should be defeated. For
a quarter of a century out from poverty
and despair tbe south has been reach
ing forth in an effort to plant its foot on
the solid rock of material prosperity;
and in view of the marvelous growth
and transformation now taking place in
the southern states, it would be unwise
and unpatriotic for congress to interfere
in the conduct of its internal affaire.
Rejoicing in the prosperity of every
action of the common country, be
(Wolcott) was unwilling to thrust with
his vote on that people at this time, a
measure which seemed to them but a
renewal ol the strife and bitterness
which was foreign to the spirit, and
dangerous to the freedom of republican
institutions. [General applause in the
galleries and on the Democratic side.]
The elections bill was then laid aside
informally. The financial bill was taken
np. Stewart addressed the senate briefly.
Tbe purpose of the bill, he said, was to
purchase twelve million,ounces of silver
now held by speculators, and issue two
hundred million dollars of bonds to be
held as a basis of the national bank cir
culation. Its provisions were for the re
lief of gamblers, silver speculators and
national banks. "Such a purchase of
silver would temporarily increase its
price and thereby, to some extent, bene
lit some of my constituents. But they
are not asking for benefit at any such
price. They prefer to bide their time
and wait until there are enough votes in
congress to enact into law the free and
unlimited coinage of silver.
Reagan spoke in favor of free coinage,
and against the pending measure ; also
speaking in opposition to the elections
bill and the proposed cloture rule.
Teller made a vigorous speech. He
said there had been an attempt on the
part of the friends of the elections bill
to bring it to a vote. Now the senate
was to be met with a new rule, which
was to overthrow a practice which had
been in vogue eighty-four years. In the
section of country he represented there !
had become a lixed notion that this bill
WM kept before the senate for the pur
pose of staving off much needed and
much demanded financial legislation. If
the senator from Massachusetts (Hoar)
did not wish the bill to stand in the way
of legislation, he should put the senate
in a position to vote on amendments be
fore he offered or allowed to be offered a
rule which would cut off debate from
amendments. Whether he (Teller)
would vote for this bill or not, depended
upon the condition of the bill
when it came to a vote, and
he wanted an opportunity to
vote for amendments. He did
not believe the people of the United
States were prepared for this cloture
rule, and for one he was prepared to re
sist by all proper methods its adoption
until the senate had an opportunity to
vote upon all the amendments. He un
derstood that the rule was to come up
Tuesday next. There were more im
portant bills pending than the elections
bill. The great minds of the country
told us we were on the verge of a finan- j
cial panic. The bankers of New York j
were saying everything is lovely. They J
dare not say otherwise. If the people
could awake to the real condition, there
would be danger of financial ruin to ten
thousand men, absolutely solvent today.
If the friends of the elections bill were
in earnest, they could pass it without !
the cloture rule. It was the duty of the j
senate to meet the great question of the '
day promptly.
Hale said the time had come when the j
senator from Massachusetts should find !
out what ought to be done. The senate
should not spend weeks more in the
manner in which it has been spending
the past weeks. The great financial
question would not down. The great
appropriation bills necessary for the gov
ernment must be considered. Nothing
was being done to put the pending mat
ter out of the way. If the 4th of March
comes with no appropriation or financial
bill passed, the senators might well take
into mind the fact that the Republican
party was discredited because it had
done nothing.
Hoar replied sharply that the bill j
would have been six months ago dis
posed of, if his counsel had been fol
Hawley said he was for anything short
of an absolute despotism to get a vote
on the bill whenever the majority of the
senate thinks it is ready to vote, closure
or no closure. The attempt of the min
ority to say there should be no vote, was
nothing short of revolution.
the rights of a MINORITY.
Teller replied that the minority had a
right to object, to debate and amend,
and it will be a sorry time for the Amer
ican people when the majority shall say
debate must close whether the repre
sentatives of independent states are
ready to close it or not. He (Teller),
was in favor of the majority ruling, but
he knew there was nothing more des
potic than the tyrannical action of a
majority. A minority is absolutely in
dispensable to the preservation of lib
erty in any country. The minority has
a right to be heard, and when it has
presented every objection it can present,
then it is its duty to yield, unless it be
some extraordinary occasion. He had
seen the entire Republican side of the
chamber retire when there was a Demo
cratic majority, because they were re
sisting what they believed to be an im
proper measure. That was the right of
the majority then, and it will be the
right of the minority now, if the pend
ing bill be of such a character as would
justify its opuonents in resorting to it.

A Seriuun Accident 'in New York That
Might Have Keen Worse.
Nitw Vouk, Dec. 30. —This afternoon
the roof of a five-story building on the
northwest corner of Twenty-ninth street
and First avenue, Collapsed. Fifty men
were at work transforming the building
into an annex to Koehler's brewery.
What caused the accident cannot be
learned. It was thought at first that
most of the men were killed, but when
firemen and policemen arrived on the
scene, they soon found that the affair
was not so serious. James Duneen and
Lewis Weber were fatally injured, dying
in a short time. Ten other men were
painfully injured, and one or two of
them may die. The roof in falling,

San Francisco, Dec. 30.—The visit to
this country of King Kalakaua, of the
Hawaiian islands, will terminate sooner
than was expected. Tho king's health
has been much improved since his arri
val here on the United States flagship
Charleston, some time ago, and it is his
intention to return to Honolulu on the
Charleston during the first week in Jan
uary. Advices received here from Hon
olulu indicate that the recent departure
of. kalakaua from that city on the
Charleston gave rise to considerable
comment on the part of the resident
British officials in Honolulu, who re
garded with disapproval the incident of
Kalakaua's accepting the courtesy of an
American man-of-war. The origin of
the recent publications in this country,
intimating that the object of Kalakaua's
visit to the United States was for the
purpose of opening negotiations for the
sale of the Hawaiian islands to the
i United States government, is attributed
in this connection to a diplomatic
stroke on the part of the British foreign
office in Honolulu, and the published
statement is made here that these
rumors ail'ecting the king and his in
tentions emanated from that source,
and that they were given currency
simultaneously with the king's arrival
in this country, for the purpose of pre
venting him from receiving any official
courtesies from the American govern
ment, such as were accorded the king's
! sister, who will succeed Kalakaua as
reigning sovereign of Hawaii, on the oc
casion of her recent visit to England.
It is known that there has been consid
erable rivalry for some time past be
tween the American and British resi
dents of Honolulu, as to who should
i control the island government. It is
also known that the British residents
there are partial to the king's sister.
When the latter passed through this
city something over a year ago on her
return to Honolulu from England, she
declined the tender of an American
man-of-war, and proceeded to Honolulu
on a regular passenger steamer.
Ten More Added to His Already Re
markably Long List.
Sacramento, Dec. 30. —Governor Wa
terman today added the following to his
already large list of pardons :
Moses Frisbie, convicted of forgery
and sentenced from San Francisco in
May, 1880, to six jears' imprisonment.
W. S. Thompson, convicted ot man
slaughter, December, 1888, and sen
tenced to ten years' imprisonment.
James Hathaway, convicted of grand
larceny, and sentenced from San Fran
cisco in September, 1888, to ten years'
James Marshall, convicted of attempt
to commit robbery, and sentenced from
San Francisco in July, 1.888, to four
years' imprisonment.
William Jones, convicted of murder
in the second degree, in San Diego, in
January, 1888, and sentenced to ten
years' imprisonment.
N. Strusemen, convicted of robbery
and sentenced from San Luis Obispo,
in March, 1880, to fifteen years impris
L. Cuff, convicted of robbery and sen
tenced from San Luis Obispo in March,
1889, to fifteen years imprisonment,com
muted to five years.
This afternoon tbe governor also
pardoned Ah Jack, convicted of murder
in Sierra county, iv 1887, and sentenced
to be hanged.
A pardon was also issued to Tarm Poi,
now under sentence of death in San
Francisco. The governor says he thinks
the prisoner is the victim of a conspiracy,
therefore he gives him his liberty on
condition that he leave the state.
He also pardoned James O'Nell, sen
tenced to life imprisonment from San
Francisco in 1888, for robbery.

Collector M. S. Snyder was attacked in
his oflice by two masked men and
robbed of four thousand dollars. Snyder
shot at his assailants twice. They
escaped. Snyder sustained a flesh
wound. Antonio Yeppa, one of the
murderers who broke jail yesterday,
was captured last night. Several Mexi
cans have been arrested for complicity
in their escape. The sheriff has offered
a reward for Verdugo and the other
SCRATCHED ballots.
Interesting Points Passed t'pon by a
Suntn Rosa Judge.
Santa Rosa, Dec. 30. —The liutledge-
Crawford election contest over the office
of superior judge, ended today as far
as the courts of this county are con
cerned. When the contest began, Craw
ford was six votes ahead, and is now de
clared elected by one vote. The princi
pal ruling of the court was upon blue
and indelible pencils, which were de
clared not in compliance with the pro
visions of the new election law. All
the votes marked with pencils of this
kind, were counted as if no change had
been made on the original ticket. The
court also held that the provision re
quiring the words "no vote" written al
ter a scratched name, not repugnant to
the constitution. The case will be car
ried to the supreme court by Judge
San Francisco Market Review.
San Francisco, Dec. 30. —Trading is
generally quiet in consequence ot' the
closing of the year and tho intervening
holidays. The fruit market in all its
branches is practically dead. Porter
Brothers made theirchange this morning
with McDonoghA Johnson. Mr. Porter
said retailers were not buying any more
goods than they could use, but there
was no doubt prices would be better
after the first of the year. Tho outlook
for dried fruit, nuts, beans, etc., is bet
ter for tho coming year. The fall of
rain has made a better showing for the
potato market. Salinas and Ore
gon products are already look
ing better, and holders are
waiting for higher prices. The market
for butter and eggs is quiet. Eastern
butter is a little weaker, there being a
great stock on hand. The provision
line remains about the same. The grain
markets were generally quiet this morn
ing, nnd there are few changes to note
in quotations. September wheat ap
peared to be a trifle easier for shipping

was steady, demand moderate. Oats,
