PILING IT ON THICK. Whitelaw Reid Can Stand Lots of Taffy. ————— A Farewell Banquet Tendered Him in Paris. He Thinks Three Years of Diplomacy Is Glory Enough. French Anarchists Substitute Poison for Dynamite as Their Agent of Death — Other Foreign Intelligence. Associated Press Dispatches. Paris, March 24.—The farewell ban quet given by the American colony to Whitelaw Reid, the retiring United States minister, took place this evening st the Hotel Continental. The guests included the most prominent members of the American colony and many fam ous Frenchmen, among them several members of the cabinet. The music was famished by the band of the national guard. Mr. John Harjes, the toast-master, began the speech-making by proposing tbe health of President Harrison. Hail Columbia by the band followed. Then came a toast to the president of the French republic. The toast was fol lowed by the playing of the Marsellaise. In proposing the health of the guest of the evening, Mr. Harjes reviewed the great work accomplished during Mr. Reid's ministership and continued, say ing: "In wishing you, on the eve of your departure, an affectionate farewell, permit me to add, that in returning to your home we hope on your onward march of usefulness, your country may entrust you with new honors and further distinctions." Harjea then requested General King, American consul general, to read an ad drees, dedicated to the honored guest. The address reviewed Mr. Reid's diplo matic career at length and eulogized bis services in most felicitous language. Reid responded in feeling and grateful language for the honor done him. He eaid he went abroad with the idea of taking a vacation, but now, after three years of bard work, he was going back to New York to get that vacation. Speak ing of what had been accomplished by him, he said if there had been any suc cess, it was largely due to the clear, pos-, itive and persistent policy of the home administration. Foreign Minister Ribot responded to the toast The Two Republics, and in the coarse of his remarks, referring to the McKinley law, said if the United Stales would grant am concessions they would be met here v'th equal concessions, even to the point tf freo trade. Colonel Stimrt Taylor of San Fran cisco, Senator Jules Simon and M.Tiard also spoke. A NKW DBSTKOYKR. Anarchists Going to Use Poison Instead of Dynamite. Paris, March 24.—The Journal Dcs Debate stated this morning that the bands of Anarchists responsible for the recent dynamite explosions have de termined to use poison for their de structive work instead of dynamite, which has caused but trifling loss of life. The dynamiters have been experi menting to discover a poison which will cause death without the risk of detec tion. A sample of the poison was found during the search of lodging houses. A number of documents written in cipher were found in the possession <li anarchists arrested today. The officials discovered the key to the cipher and gained confirmation of the story the Journal Dcs Debats published. When a man was arrested he was seeking em ployment as a servant in an aristocratic family who had incurred the hatred of anarchists. The sentence of death waß pronounced against them, and the man arrested was selected to carry out the evil design, by poisoning all the foods and liquids on tbe first favorable oppor tunity. The discovery of the diabolical plot has greatly increased the feeling of alarm caused by the recent anarchistic demonstrations. KITTY'S LBGACY.

London, March 24.—The Chronicle cays: Blame, having added highly ad vantageous treaties with the republics of Sooth America to the enormous re sources of the United States, can there fore afford to wait for reciprocity with ' Canada or any other country on his own terms. This is the true explanation of the failure of Canada's negotiations. Ii your blood peer? Take Bhohaic's Pills LOS ANGELES HERALD. France Refuses to Apologise for the Arrest or British Subject*. Paris, March 24.—M.

THEIR TIME SPENT IN SCORING THE NEWSPAPERS, When a Grave Emergency Confronts Them and Affairs of State Are Trembling; in the Balance—The President's Attitude on the Bering Sea Question Endorsed. Wahihnoton, March 24.—1t seems singular that with a grave emergency confronting it, and the affairs of state trembling in the balance, the United States senate should lose sight of the real issues of moment, and turn to scor ing tbe newspapers for printing news in which the people have a legitimate interest. Yet such is the fact, and a large part of the time during which the senate has been in executive session the past few days, supposed to be devoting itself to the discharge of its high func tion as an advisory body to the presi dent, has really been devoted to quer ulous complaints against newspaper en terprise, mutual recrimination for sus pected betrayal of secrets and searches for the hidden channels through which the press obtains its information. Today the senate resorted to the un precedented device of ordering the with drawal of all its heretofore trusted em ployees from the chamber, excepting Secretary McCook. The foreign affairs committee reported through Sherman, recommending the ratification of the Bering sea arbitration treaty. Sherman pointed out the ad vantage to the United States from ready acquiescence in submission to arbitra tion, and how Great Britain, by refusal to consent to a modus vivendi, would be placed in an unenviable light. Sherman also reported a resolution from the committee in the nature of an endorsement of the attitude assumed by tbe president, and in substance assuring him the support of the senate. The discussion was free from jingoism, but revealed a quiet determination on the part of the senate to maintain the dignity of the nation and protect its rights. There was no belief that war would result from tbe present entangle ment, and for the second time this ses sion there was expressed tbe idea that as Great Britain appeared to be stopped from acting according to her own best interests and the principles of common justice, through deforence to the senti ment of Canada, it would be well to ad minister to the latter a lesson by the withdrawal of that priceless concession, the privilege of free shipment of her products and goods through the United States. No action was taken today on the sub ject. The indications are that after lurther discussion the treaty will be rat ified. Any idea of the complication be ing need as a means of affecting politi cal issues are negatived by the attitude of the Democratic Senators who, if pos sible, are more ardent than their Re publican colleagues in arguing for most hearty Bupport of the executive. TAIL-TWISTING. The London Times Discusses the Bering Sea Matter. London, March 24.—The Times, in a leader on the Bering sea matter, says: "It is to the credit of the American people that they have not responded to the noisy protests of their public men. It is remarkable, after so many years of experience, that the party leaders still deem it profitable to beat a big drum on every possible occasion and ask other nations, especially Great Britain, to tread on the tail of their coat. We fail to understand the meaning of the American reply that damages can not be recovered, because if the proposal is accepted England will be bound to recover them and refund them to Amer ica. On the other hand, if the decision is adverse to the American claim, as moßt people acquainted with interna tional law expect, there will be no means, as matters now stand, of secur ing compensation for injury done to British sealers by the suspension of fishing in 1891. while the renewal of the interdict will cause much heavier losses." Commenting on the danger of bringing tbe British and American fleets in prox imity, the Times says it is only too likely to bring them into conflict, and concludes: "Tail twisting may be pop ular sport, but a serious quarrel with England is not likely to assist Harrison in his presidential campaign." The Daily News, refeiring to the cor respondence, cays: "There is much force in Wharton's objections tbat dam ages are unrecoverable from individuals. Cannot Lord Salisbury pledge our credit for any fine imposed? If America ob jects she might be invited to put it the otner way by pledging herself to pay for the luxury of prohibition." The Times says: "There is a possi bility of the complications causing un easiness among the members of the commons. If the modus vivendi is not restored it is believed America will hur ry men-of-war to Bering eea and sweep off the Canadian sealers." New suits at 125 W. Third st.

The Free Coinage Bill Has a Close Call. It Came Within an Ace of Be ing Tabled. Speaker Crisp's Casting: Vote Was All That Saved It. The Filibusters Prevent It From Coming to a Final Vote—lt Goes on the Calendar for Future Consideration. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, March 24.—The galleries were again packed when the silver de bate was resumed today, and there was a very full attendance on the part of members. Bland announced that he would postpone his motion for the pre vious question till 5 o'clock, in order to give an oppottunity for greater debate. Williams of Illinois, a Democratic member of the coinage committee, opened the debate in favor of the bill. He elicited great applause when he ex claimed : "The unit of value is a crea ture of the law, and the power of declar ing what shall constitute the unit of value in the United States is vested in congress alone I" He criticized the administration for working against the bill, and predicted that if the measure passed the house the administration would exert all its mighty influence to force gold to a pre mium, creating trepidation to prevent like action by the senate, i In a sharp passage at arms, whicb>ow ensued between Wike of Illinois , and Williams, the latter maintained thai she silver coin of Europe is already at a par with gold, and that the United States is capable of taking care of the bullion yet uncoined. Cockran of New York, the well-known Tammany leader, opened for the oppo sition to the bill, which he vigorously attacked. He, nevertheless, compli mented Chairman Bland's report, and declared that he bad no patience with Mr. Harter, who had said: "I credit him (Bland) with gross ignorance as the only excuse for bis attitude." Cockran said that, while disputing the .conclusions of the bill, he desired also to dispute the statement of Harter. If there had been ignoiance displayed upon tbe floor, it had not been displayed by the gentleman from Missouri. This thrust at Harter was greeted with applause, and Cochran continued his speech at length. > Cochran was followed by of New York, wbo said his constituents were opposed to the bill, and he would therefore vote against it. Dingley of Maine also spoke in opposi tion to the bill, saying that its effect would be to give to the silver mine owners of this nation $21,000,000 annually more than they are now re ceiving for their product. In addition to this our mints would be flooded by silver imported from abroad. Loud of California said tbe first and most potent reason why he should vote against the bill was that in the platform of the Republican party there was en graited a plank against the free coinage of silver. Furthermore, in the laws of his state, in the obligations of almost every country, and in all notes and con tracts, were provisions making them payable in gold. To assume that the people of California were in favor of the free coinage of silver would be to assert that they were a living lie. He remem bered when, as a mechanic, he had to take his $100 a month in silver and ex change it at a loss of $G before paying his butcher and baker. Bartine of Nevada, leader of the Re publican free coinage men, made an able and comprehensive speech, review ing the fiscal policy of this government and Europe on the silver question dur ing the past century and combating the arguments against free silver. The ruling classes in the eastern cities, where wealth had been piled mountain high by special legislation, were swell ing into a white heat of indignation at the thought that the silver miners would realize an enhanced price through free coinage. Tbe only men in Nevada ever called by the name of money kings were engaged in producing more gold than silver. It was these infamous miners who had furnished the country over $400,000,000 in coin with which to pay the national debt and the balance of trade. The farmer has more at stake in this question than tbe silver miner. The great bulk of wheat sold in the European market is sold in competition with silver-using countries and upon a silver basis. It is perfectly plain, said Bartine, that the Indian producer has an advantage over the American producer in the Eng lish market. Both sell at the same price. The Indian takes his silver home, where it is just as good and effective money as it ever was. The American can obtain the same amount of silver, but if he brings it to America be sustains a loss of 30 per cent in con verting it into standard coin. Bartine did not pretend to believe that everything abnormal in the social and industrial conditions of the day had resulted from silver demonetization. Neither did be claim that its demonetiz ation would convert the American conti nent into a terrestrial paradise and fill the land with Utopian bills, but he did believe its general result would be all in tbe line of beneficence; that it would encourage enterprise and lead to a more even distribution of wealth. Hatch of Missouri believed this ques tion was a national one, and therefore a party one. It was utterly impossible for the Democratic party to ignore its past history and pledges to the people on this subject. The gentleman from Massachusetts (Williams) had at tempted to read him out of the Demo cratic (party, and egotistically declared that only those who agreed with him (Williams) were Democrats. Then the house was much amused by a little tilt between Hatch and Williams. Tbe latter having asked if Hatch could refer nlm to a Democratic platform that ever declared for free silver, Hatch re plied: "When you want a Democratic platform you will get it from Democrats, and not from men whose swaddling clothes have not been off for a week or a month or a year." [Great laughter.] Hatch of Missouri made a strong party speech in favor of the bill, an nouncing that he was in favor of making the bill a matter of party fealty. He told Williams of Massachusetts that he did not know the first principles of De mocracy, and when Williams asked if he was reading him out of the party. Hatch retorted that Williams had eaid the time was coming when the Demo cratic party would have to choose be tween the Democrats of New York and the Alliance of the south. He (Hatch) was willing to make the choice, if ne cessary, and would swap the barefooted statesman from Kansas (Simpson) for tbe gentleman from Massachusetts, and if another swap were wanted he would take in the erring young Democrat from Georgia (Watson) and throw over an other Massachusetts Mugwump. Tbe speech created almost a sensation. E. B. Taylor of Ohio in the course of his speech, expressed surprise tbat Hatch had declared tbat the repeal of 1875 was the greatest infamy ot the century, and that it was done by a Re publican congress and a Republican president. Hatch knew that not a single Democrat voted against that measure in the senate ; that Thurman and Bayard voted for it, and the only votes cast against it were by Repub licans. Castle of Minnesota and English of New Jersey opposed the bill. Taylor of Illinois had read a proposed substitute intended to ridicule the pend ing bill. Sweet of Idaho favored free coinage. Smith of Illinois deprecated the con sideration of the-measure from a party standpoint, and said he would vote against tbe bill. Butler of lowa closed the debate by saying that when the act of 1873 had brought the farmers into a condition of suffering a gentleman from Illinois (Tay lor), a millionaire, arose and with a comical substitute added insult to injury and mocked the farmers in their suffer ing. Bland then demanded the previous question. Burrows moved to lay the pending bill on the table, and the e'erk called the roll on his motion. Excitement was in tense as the call progressed. When the clerk bad completed bis recapitulation, the speaker rose and announced the re sult, but before doing bo directed the clerk to call his name, and then availed himself of his right and cast his vote in the negative, amid the deafening ap plause of the advocates of the measure. Bland, not aware that the speaker's vote had saved his measure from imme diate annihilation, changed his vote from the negative to the affirmative, in order to have an opportunity to move reconsideration, but being advised in a moment that the motion was defeated by a tie vote, again changed to the neg ative. Enloe of Tennessee suddenly strode into the house and raid he desired to have his vote recorded, bnt tbe speaker refused, Enloe having been absent at the session of the pension investigating com mittee. Herbert of Alabama, who had also been absent, failed to get his vote re corded. The motion was lost by a tie vote of 148 to 148. Outhwaite of Ohio at once moved to adjourn. Lost, 99 to 193. Johnson of Ohio moved to reconsider the vote by which tbe house refused to table, and Bland moved to lay Johnson's motion on the table. The motion to table tbe motion to reconsider was re jected, 145 to 149, and tbeantis applaud ed with vigor. The speaker stated that the vote re curred on the motion to reconsider, and Reed sprang to his feet and demanded the yeas and nays, and the roll was called. The Bpeaker, without ordering a reca pitulation, announced that tbe motion to reconsider was defeated by a tie vote of 148 to 148. Cockran demanded a recapitulation of the vote. The speaker stated that the demand came too late. The confusion was then redoubled, and the speaker was compelled to call in the services of the sergeant-at-arms to restore order. Finally the vote was recapitulated by unanimous consent and was announced: Yeas, 150; nays, 148, and the result was loudly applauded by the anti-silverites. The question then was on the motion to lay the pending bill on the table, and after a scene of wild disorder the vote was announced: Yeas, 143; nays, 145; so the house refused to lay the bill on tbe table. Tbe chair announced that the ques tion recurred to Bland's motion for the previous question on the bill, and amendments. A motion to adjourn was lost, 80 to 202. Motions to adjourn; to take a recess; to adjourn till Saturday, and adjourn till Monday were all voted down, and then Bland, stating that it was evident that no fair vote could be taken tonight, moved adjournment, which motion car ried at 12:35 a. m. The silver bill now goes on the calen dar, but it is probable tbe committee on rules will at an early day report a reso lution for its further consideration. Unlustructed Clevelandltes.

London, March 24.—1n the commons, today, Secretary of War Stanhope ex plained the matter of tbe punishment of soldiers at Aldersbot for wearing sham rock on St. Patrick's day. It appeared that a private named O'Grady had the shamrock on. It did not occur to the officer tbat it was St. Patrick's day, and he ordered O'Grady to remove the emblem. O'Grady, in a most insub ordinate manner, replied: "I won't." [Cheers from the Irish members.J He was sentenced to forty-eigbt hours' hard labor, "not for wearing the shamrock," said Mr. Stanhope, "but for his reply to the officer." The home secretary added tbat he would agree with the government that the punishment was justified. Cries of "no" from tbe Irish members. Pat O'Brien (Parnellite) will introduce a bill allowing Irish, English and Scotch soldiers to wear their national emblems respectively, on St. Patrick's, St. George's and other gala days. No land, McCarthy and Sexton brought up the shamrock incident again tonight. Balfour said tbe last thing the govern ment wanted to do was to wound the sentiments of the Irish soldiers. The officer bad forgotten about St. Patrick's day. McNeill regretted that Stanhope had forced a discussion, instead of admit ting, as Balfour did, that the officer committed an indiscretion. He hoped Stanhope would now say no black mark would be recorded against O'Grady. Stanhope thereupon promised that tbe sentence should not be recorded. In the discussion of the bill to facili tate the acquisition of small agricultural holdings, this evening Mr. Gladstone admitted that the bill was an honest effort in the right direction. Though falling short of tbe actual necessities of the case, he trusted that the house, acting on common ground, would pro duce a message tbat would result in enormous good to the people. Mr. Balfour reciprocated the spirit of Mr. Gladstone's advances. The bill passed second reading. Judge Maynard's Case. Albany, N. V., March 24.—Judge Maynard's case came up in the senate today, Senator O'Connor offering a long preamble and resolution regarding May nard's action in connection with the Duchess county election case, and set ting forth that it is believed by many citizens tbat his appointment aa judge by the governor was in the nature of a reward for his wrongful and unlawful act. This was tabled by a party vote, and a resolution was adopted providing for an inquiry by the judiciary. An Embarrassed Iron Firm.
