SADLY DEMORALIZED Silver Men Dismayed by Fri day Night's Vote. The Fnture of the Bland Bill Anything; but Bright. An Effort Made to Bring It to a Vote Monday. ■The Chances Bather Against Its Passage. The East Almost Solid Against It—Bouse and Senate Proceedings. Associated Press Dispatches. Washing ton, March 25.—The silver advocates are sadly demoralized by the weaknees their cause betrayed by laßt evening's proceedings in the house. They all along had been confident of a majoiitv of thirty or forty. Bland will at once appeal to the committee on rules to set apart a day and hour for further consideration of the bill, thuß cutting off all intervening motions and forcing a vote. The anti people will also appeal to the committee on rules as for per mission to offer motions, first, to sub stitute an international congress; sec ond, to recommit; third, to postpone till December next; fourth, that a vote be taken first on the minority interna tional congress. The opponents of the bill claim that this would be simply protecting the rights of the minority. AN ANALYSIS OF THK VOTE. In view of the extreme closecess of the vote on the silver question, as dis closed last night, an analysis of the tie vote on the test motion to lay tbe Bland bill on the table is interesting. Of 148 votes in favor of the motion, 82 were cast by Democrats and GO by Republi cans. The negative vote shews 11 Re publican, the other 137 being either Democrats or Alliance. The unexpectedly large showing of Democratic votes against the bill came from the following states: New York, 19; Pennsylvania, 10; Wisconsin, 7; Mas sachusetts, 7; lowa, 5; New Jersey, Ohio and Maryland, 4 each; Illinois. Connecticut and Maryland, 3 each.: New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Louisi ana and Minnesota, 2 each ; South Car olina, 1 (Brawley); Delaware, 1 (Causey); West Virginia, 1 (Wilson,); Missouri, 1 (Cobb); Caliloruia, 1 (Geary). Oi the eleven Republican votes, Vin cent A. Tyler oi Ohio was the only one east of the Mississippi river; Kansas contributed two, in Broderick and Fun- Bton; South Dakota two more, Pickles and Jolley, while the other six votes came from as many different Btates — Colorado (Townsend),Wyoming (Chirk), Nevada (Bartine), California (Bowers), Idaho (Sweet), Oregon (Hermann). The pairs announced were : Enochs with Tarsney; Sanford with Elliott; Darborrow with Hooker of Mississippi; Morse with Caterings: li. B. Taylor witn OAtes; Van Horn with Johnstone of South Carolina; Henderson of Illi nois with Peel; Rusk with Compton ; W. A. Stone with Jones of Virginia. The names first given in each case are the members who would have voted against the bill, and in the latter those who would have voted for it. THE FUTURE OF THE JILL DUBIOUS. Following is a list of the members not paired and who failed to vote: Camp bell, Wadsworth and Stablnecker, New York ; Forman, Wike and Springer, Illi hois; Cooper, Indiana; Clover, Kansas; Cheatham, North Carolina; Donavan. Ohio; Shell, South Carolina; Herbert, Alabama; Lester, Virginia; Boatner, Louisiana; Enloe, Tennessee. Figuring in the absentees according to their pre viously exptessed ideas, an absolutely full vote shows at least one ma jority for the silver men; but a full vote is practically unknown iv the house, and the silver men concede that when it comes to a very close vote they are less likely ttiau their opponents to secure the vote of every member favoring their cause. The situation is lees encouraging to ihe silver men when they come to con eider their future course, as the large ehowing made against the bill has un questionably strengthened the oppo nents, and some men who always voted in favor of free coinage have since ex pressed themselves as disinclined, for political reasons, to further push the matter, If Catcbings returns to Washington in time, a sptcial older may be brought into the houee on Monday for immediate consideration of the Bland silver bill and the pending amendments. Bland, during the afternoon session of tbe house, disclosed a plan by the intro duction of a resolution fixing Monday, March 28th, as the date on which the bill shall be taken up and put upon passage. Accompanying the resolution is a provision giving the speaker power to refuse to entertain any such motion. The resolution went to the committee on rules. THE HOUSE DEMORALIZED. The free-coinage fight had a demoral izing effect on the attendance in the house today, and at no time during the day would the roll call have developed a quorum. It was impossible to take de cisive action on important measures. After prayer by the chaplain, there were a number of members on their feet asking for corrections in the record and journal. Most of these were directed towards the roll call in the record which was incorrectly printed by the printing office. Reed of Maine made the sarcastic remark: "I am glad to notice that the multiplicity of errors which has apparently occurred in this congress, is not an evidence of obliquity, as it has been iv some con tsretee>." [Laughter,] The house went into committee of the whole on the private calendar, three hours were consumed iv consideration of the bill for the relief of the personal represent tlives of ikmv 11.

AN APPEAL FOR THE G. A. R. A message from the president, trans mitting a communication from the Dis trict of Columbia commissioners, ac companied by a letter from the chair man of the executive committee of the G. A. It. encampment to be held next September, was laid before the renate tniay. An appeal is made for $100,000, one-half to be paid by the district for the expenses of the encamp ment. The president says in part: "It seems to me that it would be highly appropriate for congress suitably to aid in making this demonstration im pressive, and extending to these soldiers, whose lives a beneficent providence has prolonged, an oppor tunity to see in the peaceful develop ment and prosperity which now bo happily prevail at the national capital, the fruits of their sacrifice and valor." SILVER PURCHASES. The offers of silver to the treasury department, today aggregated 111!!),000 ounces. The amount purchased was 170 ounces at prices ranging from \ $.8830 to $.8834. The director of the mint has an nounced that the government having purchased the quota of silver required by law for the present month, no fur ther offers will be considered until April Ist. WASHINGTON NOTES, Representative John C. Hank, secre tary of the Republican caucus of the house, has issued a call for a joint meet ing of the Republican senators and rep resentatives on Thursday evening next, for the purpose of electing acongression al campaign committee.

Berlin, March 25.—The discussion in the American congress of the silver question has attracted much attention in Germany. The newspapers all agree that free silver would be a bad thing for \ the United Stales. The Associated Press correspondent interviewed Dr. ! Koch, president of the Imperial bank the grandest financial institution oi Germany ; Dr. Siemens, director of the Deutsche bank, the largeet private bank ing corporation in Berlin, having rela tions with America, aud other promi nent bankers, with reference to tbe effect of the'proposed silver legislation in America. Dr. Koch -said, both Germany and England would undoubtedly oe willing to take part in an international monetary conference, but felt positive that neither country would correent to-c bimetallic basis, although Germany would doubtless agree to some increase in the amount of silver used, Except a few Agrarians nobody in Germany dreamed of the remonetieation of sil ver. Austria, which was ehangins from paper to gold, would not take up silver, and Englaud also knew wben ebe was well off. H Amer ica adopted free silver., nobody there would be benefited. The farmere would receive more for the crops, but the silver dollars would have less pur chasing value, and in the end they would be worse off. A change of cur rency is always a bad tiling, but x. change te inferior currency would in flict especially heavy losses on the coun try making it. The continuous export of goid from America was a surprise to Dr. Koch. He said it wag probably due to the de sire on the part of foreign holders to realize on the present high prices of American securities. Dr. Siemans and other bankers hold similar views with Dr. Koch. Amending Her Prayer. 1 am prompted to send you the follow- ' ing anecdote about a half-past-2 midgot ji who is quartered in our domicile.

These lines she has faithfully repeated, word for word, with the remarkable and inimitable pronunciation common t* all children at her age, but last night she astonished -as by saying— Guard thy little lamb to-night. Through tho—that not darkness, that gaslight! j And surely enough, a new lamp post had been erected during the day on our corner, and so the "little lamb" no long er needed protection through the dark ness, but through the gaslight.

TTIk LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING MARCH 26, 1892. BERING SEA TREATY. The Senate Further Consid- ers the Convention. A Vote on It Expected to Be Taken Next Week. The Probabilities Are iv Favor of Its Ratification. Senator Feltnti Leads tho Opposition for Its Rejection— Blame Atteuds the Cabinet Meeting—Nay.'l Preparations. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, March 25. —The senate today spent two aud a half hours in further consideration of the Bering cc.; arbitration treaty. A vote is expected on the motion to ratify the treaty conic time next week. The discussion has established a strong probability that the treaty wiil be ratified. The senators who opjitse it as a whole, are few in number, and find their principal repre sentative iv Felton of California. His opposition is based upon the idea that it contemplates the possible surrender of absolute rights acquired by the United States from Russia. But the most formidable opposition is made up of members who believe that the treaty should be accompanied by a resolution directing the president to withhold the exchange of final ratifica tion until Great Britain consents to re new the modus vivendi. It has been represented by memb;rs* of the foreign relations committee that the adoption of such a resolution would defeat the treaty, for Great Britain weuld never consent to be placed in the attitude of renewing the modus vivendi through fear of results. There is another element in the sen ate that seeks to follow ratification with & resolution indorsing the president's j action up to this point, and asserting ! strongly the purpose oi this govern ! ment to protect its property in the seal ! islands at all hazards, pending atbitrr. tion. This element appeared today Co have gathered strength. SERIOUSNESS OF THE SITUATION. The seriousness of the Bering -sea | situation is shown by the attendance of 1 Secretary Blame at the cabinet meeting today, notwithstanding his recent ill j ness. The other members were all ' present aIBO. Secretaiieß Foster and Tracy held a conference prior to the meeting, pre sumably with regard to orders to naval and revenue vessels assigned to duty in patrolling the seal grounds. It is prac tically settled thatUie warshipsCharles tou, Baltimore, Bos»n,Yorktown. Adams Mohican and the revenue vessels Cor win, Bear, Rush and Albatross will be assigned to this duty. It is understood that a decision was reached that the government will await the reply of Lord Salisbury to the prec ident's last note before proceeding on the assumption that tbe English gov ernment will not co-operate in measures to protect, the sealing industry. NAVAL FRBF.LRATION*. The navy department authorities hardly know how far to go in tbe line of extraordinary preparations until the international correspondence with-ref | erence to the Bering sea dispute i bears a more conclusive aspect. Meanwhile, although the navy officials concede that our relations with Great Britain are decidedly strained, few of them in reality expect actual hostilities jto arise. It ia also pointed out by naval i experts that it will hardly be good poli j cy for the department to concentrate a I heavy force of vessels in Bering sea, for ! even if hostilities should be precipitated [ by an exchange of -ffhots in those waters j the war would not be fought thert but [ nearer home. RCb£fAN ASSISTANCE. It is rumored that the presidert has been given, by the Russian minister, -assurance of the ficeeian government's ■<?b-operation with this government in rthe matter of protecting the seals in sea, and that four men-of-war ■would be aoded to the fleet of sir Rus sian ironcladsAow at Tladivoetock. A cabinet ofWcer this afternoon stated there was no truth in the rumor that 'Rossis had agreed to co-operate with tbe United States in protecting the seal herds iv Bering sea. ' Salisbury Advised to Kenew the Itlodug Vlveudl. QsQNDOK, March 25.—The Star, which yesterday approved of Salisbury 's atti tude in declining to assent to the pro longation of the modus vivendi, has changed its views, and today advises Salisbury to renew the modus vivendi. It says the renewal will cause the Cana dians to scream, adding, "But better that ithan a serious quarrel between Great Britain and the United States."' In the house of commons, today, in reply ta a request for information as to the latest communications from t.Le United States on the Bering sea ques tion, Lowther, parliamentary secretary THE BRITISH VIEW OF IT. of tbe foreign office, eaid correspondence was still pending, but he hoped it would be ready ior production in the house Monday. The reply to Great Britain's last note to the United States, he said, was still under consideration. He said, furthermore, that the foreign office had had nothing from Washington confirm ing the telegrams published in this morning's papers to tlie effect that the United States senate committee on for eign relations had recommended the ratification of the convention.

Returned the Tapers. A well known gentleman in this city moved in to a houso that had been pro viously occupied by another gentleman who was ;t subscriber to one of the even ing papers. The carrier of course con tinned leaving tho paper for a space of a year, never having been notified of the change. The collector recently went around to collect for the paper, (he bill being made out in tho name of tho gen tleman who had subscribed. When the collector presented the bill the gentle man of the house said: "Why, my dear sir, that man has not lived here for over a year. Yon are at the wrong house." "Well, has not the carrier been leav ing you a copy of the paper all the lime?'' "Yes, sir. But 1 did not subscribe and 1 told the hoy to quit leaving i: But ho never did so." "You have received the paper every day, haven't yon?" "Yes, sir." "Then yon ought to pay for it." "Well, excuse me a moment," and the gentleman went into the house. Re turning in ;v moment he lugged out a -stack of newspapers half as tall as him self. "Here are your papers, sir: 1 have no use, for them." Ho had read them and carefully file I them away until tho bill should be pre sented. The collector sent a transfer wagon to haul away a year's accumulation of papers, the pay for which he failed to get, because one man returned them and the man never received them.—Chatta nooga Times. Not thy Worst Girl in tho World. Professor Chapman, of Bowdoin col lege, told the following story at ni< alumni dinner: "I feel like the little daughter of a friend of mine in Por. land.

The lady gave her danghte; a sound lecture and then told her to go up stairs, alone, in her room, and as!; God to forgive her for her error. "In a few minutes she was surprised to see the baby come down stairs again appear in the sitting room and stand back with a great deal of seriousness. " 'Well, did you go up and do what i told you?' asked tho fond mother. " 'Yes,' replied the guilty one, 'and God said, "Urrdat Scott! Elsie Murray I've known a great many worser girir than you.—Boston Herald. A Four-Yeai-Old Philosopher. Among the tnatiy anecdotes relating to the late Rev. Thomas Hill, D. D., is one told by himself. Dr. Hill and his wife awoke quite early one morning and regarded with interest a crib which con tamed a precocious child of less than four years. Presently the child turned her face up to the ceiling and solilo quized: "Oh. how much easier it is for a person to think than to act. Now with a dog it is right the other way."- Boston Traveller. Not a I'ive Cent Loa/. While treasurer of the Maine Central Mr. Linscott always made his own banJ; deposits, taking the immense amounts in bills wrapped in a newspaper under his arm as he rode up town on a street car.

The value of the loaf of bread was probably not far from $50,000.—Lewis ton JournaL • SEAMEN'S TROUBLE. A Regular Pitched Battle at San Pedro. Union Sailors Attack a Non- Union Crew. One Man Shot Through the Neck ami others Cut and Urulsed. Union Mm Arrestrd for Mutiny and Non-I'iilon Mm for DaMrtluD. Conflicting i;«'i<ort« of tho Occurrence. Tliere was B regular pitched battle at San Pedro yesterday morning between union and non-union Bailors. Captain Harding, of the ship America, which has just discharged a cargo ot conl from British Columbia, applied to United States Deputy Marshal Anderson of San Pedro for assistance in removing his crew of eighteen men from the vessel, as they refused to vacate ihe forecastle. | Captain Hauling reported that ho had paid oil' the men and discharged them. Deputy Anderson and Constable Car penter went out to the vessel, which j was anchored three miles out in the roadstcd, on the tug Warrior. ! They reached there Thursday night, : and" after a parley the men 1 said they would go ashore in | the morning. When the steamer Corona arrived yesterday, Captain I Harding announced that a new crew ! was on board, whom he had shipped through the United States shipping j commissioner in San Francisco; that ! they were non-union men, while those !on board the America were union men. \ The Corona was signalled and moved alongside of the America in the road* < stead. At this juncture several boats arrived | from San Pedro loaded with union sail ! ors. They immediately ran alongside of the America and began climbing up j over the main chains into the forecastle ; head, despite Captain Harding's positive I orders not to come on board. Soon - there were about sevcnty-tive union I sailors on the decks of the America. ! They made an attempt alfo to board the Corona, but Captain Hall shouted that he would shoot anyone who made the attempt. A battle then took place on the deck and several sailors were cut and bruised, I and one man named Willows of the San Pedro party of union sailors was shot in j the neck. Quite a number of shots were fired in the melee, and it is claimed ; that the ball which struck Williams was , tired from the Corona. While the fight was in progress, An derson was on the tug Wanior, and finally succeeded iv reaching the deck of the America, and the new crew were aided in boarding the America from the Corona, and their luggage also secured, although an effort was made by the union sailors to chuck it overboard. The original crew were encouraged not to land by the members of the union who shouted to them that they could demand twenty-four hours' notice before vacat ing the vessel. After the Corona pulled away the unionists dr<-w out their revolvers and forced the new crew to go ashore at the muzzle of their weapons. Deputy An derson 1 hen took tbe first train to this city, and Eecuring warrants from the federal authorities for tbe sailors on charges of mutiny and inciting to mu tiny, left for Pan Pedro, accompanied by Deputies Benedict and Donahue. They arrested quite a number and landed them iv the San Pedro lockup, and lively times were expected during the night. ♦ A DIFFERENT STORY. |No Kid Occurred — Non-Union Sailors Arrested for Desertion. Special to the llkuald. San Pkdho. March 25.—The article in the Exprees is misleading. No riot, no disturbance occurred. Perfect quiet prevails. The steamer Corona this morning had on board eighteen men, a crew for the ship America, in charge of United States Shipping Commissioner C. W. Thorrold. They were placed on board the ship in the outer harbor. Some sixty Sailors' union men were there when the non-union crew arrived, and persuaded them to leave at once. They came ashore, started for Los Angeles and were arreted on the train at Wilmington, brought here and are now in jail on the charge of deser tion. They will be examined tomorrow. Everything is quiet. A Diamond Worth $40,000. A magnificent diamond, a perfect octa hedron, weighing 205 carate, has been purchased from a river digger by a Kim berley buyer.
