among Republican* in general uponjhe l
shelving and practical defeat ol the j
Elections bill in the Senate yesterday is ,
of a peculiar lurid hue. It is character- j
izetl us among the most shameful nod 1
notorious pieces of legislation for the j
benefit oi the legislators that has ever j
disgraced the annals of Congress, and j
that is saying a great deal, when the
Credit Mobilier is recalled. Senator J
iloar admits the defeat of the bill, j
0;hf ra say that it-may be again up, Lut i
the fact remains that hist nigbt'a caucus I
of Republican Sonators was very alioily J
attended aud.litilo interest is manifested (
one way or another now. t
STARTLING FACTS. C
A few plain facts in connection with \
the vote by which the Elections bill J
wae. shelved yesterday may be noted to \
advantage* fn the first place, it is curious
that nicer all the representations ?
made as to the short opposition said to r
be rampant throughout all sections of t
the north to the measure, it remained t
for the actual negative votes to come t
from one particular auction. Further- j
more, that that section is the only one i
to ho benefited by a certain apecies of c
legislation already in part and expected
in lull with the aid of the votes of a o
DC/lid minority, and that certain species o
immediately takes the place of the de- r
posed Elections bill. In short, if any
one before had doubts bb to whether a
thtyo has been a deal between a few a
Republican Senators and the Democrats fi
on the Silver and Federal Elections bills, ?
.tiuck doubt ezietn no longer. Theru is 1
no more doubt that these few Senators, v
au conjunction with a few Democratic I
.Senators and a number of member.-; of a
lilt; Ik use of both parties, have made a
very considerable thing, financially c
epeaking, oat ol the deal. t
TO ME INVESTIGATED.
Duckery, of Missouri, ha3 a resolution (c
now be/ore ths House calling for an in- |j
vestigation on ithis point. He is not s
inoro anxious to have it come np than t
Mtijnr McKinley and the majority of d
(he Republicans. Various Senators have
been interviewed as to this same point, *
They have each and all "heard" that a f
pool existed, but the particular one in* ?
terviowed did not have a hand in It. So
it goes.
it may be recalled that the Senator c
Wolcott who made the brilliant speech
against the lilectiono bill iitbosawe
Kentloman who made the equally brilliant
speech in favor of freo coinage at tj
' the Intc sexeion, and who held the de- g
ieat ni tlw Tariil bill over the heade of f(
the Republicans as a threat to hasten
the pasbge of the Silver bill.
The same may be said regarding St na- b
tors Teller aud Stewart; apd it is not g
liki'Iv to be forgotten that each ol these j
gentlemen has more than a philanthrc- 8
nic interest in silver. Yet iu the very
?ce of tlie notoriety already achieved an t
.attempt in made to repeat the move, j
They reckon without their host.
REU COINAGE DEAD. ' C
The free coinage proposition is dead J
and with it the l'inance bill. It was j
choked to death by ite friends in the r
.Senate, No greater violence could hav# 1
been done to the free coinage of silver t
'..ban was perpetrated by the silver-pool
Senators when they joined the Democrats
for tho purpose of sido-trackiDgtho
Election hill. Republicans in the House j
who would have voted for coisago in
any shape, declare now that they will 1
.not support it. t I
Speaker Road had assured tho friends 1
ol free coinage that ho would do nothing i
to defeat its fair heariog and an early ]
vote should it corno from the SenUe; t
bat lie in quoted as having said to-day <
that It would not be considered while bo
Jb in tiwrhair. 1
Kreo coinage will pc*s the Senate. It i
will ?7?t ix larj;e majority there. All of I
the em mies of tho Election bill on the
Repabltcao side, most of the Democrats
and some of ijje bert men on tho Jiejuiblican
bide will vole iar free coinage, but ]
it will end there, so far as this Congreea (
jb concerned. (
the committer ac. ainst IT. <
In the jtlrat place there is a majority of J
one against free coinage in the House j
Committee on Coinage, Weights and j
Measures, which will have charge of j
the bill wheu it cornea over from tho
Senate. It was thought by some that
when Mr, Conger, ot Iowa, resigned .
from the chairmanship of the committee
and Mr. Wickhani, of Ohio, a free oin* ,
ujie advocate, buccneded to the chairmanship,
the committee would have a <
majority for free coinage; but not so. <
There ih a majority of onu against free ,
coinage in iiny form. j
The Speaker does not reccgnizo anyone
for any purpose without anoning j
Joat what to be done. Ho would not
Mteoimittt anyone to uolt consideration
of froo coinage.; If any trick like t?iat
perpetrated iu the Senate should be attempted,
it would be declared out of ortuftt
it v. ill not ba possible to i*-5t 1
:r?M> coinage before tbe House by Jf-iir or 1
foul meant?. ,
TUB REVOLTING 8CHEME A FAlLUflK
The conspiracy will not win. 1; may
defeat the Election sbill, but it has djsKuaterl
rouociontious friends of free 1
coinage and they declare that the silver
poo! Republican Senators who have sold
out their party will never realize on
their investment. Sopolpablo was the
irauil, so revolting the scheme, that it
had U;t little cllect upon the silver
bullion market. Silver appreciated but 1
apoint ttuti ^ ball and dropped back to
ts starting point as soon as the feeling
in the House became known in New
t'ork to-day. Judas lso^iot sold out
lor a few pieces of silver, bui ip looks
now as though an attempt to sell tip
cardinal principles of th? Republican
warty for a few "point*" on bullion
would p.rove a boomerang even before
final action upon the trade ia accomplished.
A LAMBKTAMJ! FXATCRE.
The lamentable feature of tho whole |
transaction is that it will defeat the Finance
bill, which has somo good features.
The Election bill was laid aside for the
ostensible purpose of adopting a measure
to prevent the contraction of the (
currency and put a stop to the hard
times, but it will prove to he the death
knell of tbat measure, for free coinage '
would defeat any propositiou now.
Tho Effect ou 'Clituige.
New Yontf, Jan. The i'oil sbjb:
Silver bullion was almost the only thing
dealt in on the Stock Exchange that was
higher in tbe forenoon. It was up ;
se.on-dgbths in the first hour, owing to
the belief, whether warranted or not,
tbat tho defeat of the force bill bail been ?
accomplished only by a compromlso j
which would at least insure somo fur- ^
[her Oliver legislation to provide for further
purchases of bullion by the Treae- '
ury, if not to have some bearing on the
free coinage question. 1:

own convenience. After the lapse 0/ P
three-quarters of an honr a quorum ap- 0
peared, and the journal of yesterday's *
proceedings was read and approved.
The presidiug officer laid before the U
senate a communication from the Secre* \
sny of the Treafmry asking for an ap- J1
aropriation of $50,000 for tho repair of ?
be custom house at Chicago. Morning f
meiness having been concluded the J1
tenate resumed the consideration of the J(
financial bill, and was addressed by
Mr. Teller. ?
After defending hla position in voting b
or the motion to consider tiieoilver bill, 14
tfr. Teller then proceeded to criticise
tfr. Sherman's Bpeecli. Tho Senator l(
rom Ohio bad occupied bi^h financial P
>ositions in this country. In certain
ections of this cpuntry where the ?
ilmighty dollar was all powerful, ami
vhere the greatest ignorance existed
ipon financial questions, save upon 61
|K?8tiou8 of diacaunt and exchange, lie W
vas a financial oraclo. He did not wonler
the American farmer was dissatisfied
rich tho Republican finance system, f jr J?
hey wanted freo coinage. ?
The Senator from Ohio had told the ai
lenate yesterday that free coinage could Jj
tot be enacted into law. If Senators
lelieved that free coinage was ep*ential ei
0 the welfare of the country, it van ?'
heir duty to voto for it. Tho other vi
irancb of Congress could pass it or de- P>
eat it. The President could sigu or do- ll1
line to sigu it, as be saw lit. re
Mr. Sherman scid he would, at some 01
?..?? rnrJtf onr.in n( Mr. Tftllar'fl
bservatlons, but he did no? euro In do so Jj|
low.
Mr. Morrill then addressed the Sen- j(a
te. He was and ever had been eineerely 1
nd heartily disposed to support any Ll
air so4 reasonable measure tending to ?a
dvaueelba Qjarlcet value of silver : but P?
t appeared to him that his silver friends PJ
Fere asking too much 'and iic hod to <?

Mr. Vest argued in favor of the free a

Ulcers. For the first time in many
ears the Democrats controlled the body.
Vm. F. Sheehan was elected Speaker
eceivin# ?? ? votes against 50 cast for
lilo Acker, tho candidate ol the Bepubicans.
Mr. Sheehan briefly addressed
he Assembly after which tho many
ilicers were elected in accordance with
he programme. The.Governor's mesago
was then roceived and read.
Gov. Hill, in his anuual mc&aflge to
ho Legislature says: In entering upon
be seventh and last year of my service
a Chief Executive of the State, I. will
otatiectto conceal my gratification at
be fact that fur the first time during the
a&t ueveu years, is the popular branch
E the Legislature in political accord
rith the executive.
"I congratulate you and theptoploof
10 Stute that, notwithstanding the ex*
itenceof an unfair and unjust apporonment,
the popular vote has at last
>und exprepsion in the selection of one
louse of the Legislature which is in
armony with the sentiments of a ma>rity
of the people "
The first paragraph of the above is acspted
&b an official announcement that
e will not be a candidate for a third
>rtn.
The Governor calls on the Legislature
>pjrovide for the enumeration of the
sopla of the State in order that "a fair
iid just apportionment may follow in
no time." He advises a general reviam
of the excise laws, to the eud that
iey may be uiore easily understood aod \
iforced, but expresses the opinion that
10 present license charges are high
aough. In that portion of his menage
3'voted to "the interests of labor" the
overnor advocates compulsory arbitraon
of disputes between corporations
id their employes. Lie calls the attenon
of the Legislature to the fact that
icre is at present no law regulating the
np'.oymeut oi 'Tinkerton's detectives"
iring labor strikes and suggpsts the adsability
of framing a statute either to
'obibit the employment or to define
io lunctons, regulate tne duties ana a
strict the powers of such "detective" t|
ganizatious. j,
The Governor denounces the "Elec- ^
uns bill" and says that the United c
ates Senate is ignoring pressing legis* ^
lion |n order to push through this [(
evolutionary me^re." He urges the 0
legislature by resolution of othervl8e(
may bo a::on beat to expreaj so emiatically
its condemnation of the pre>9c<l
legislation that the united voice v
New York's representatives in Conoss
way be secured from the State and
ocoiiiaUy, the evil effects of so unwise
law." , 0
Ho recommends ouch legislation uiw 11
)eral action as will enable tho State to b
ake a proper exhibit of the State's re- u
lurces at the coming World's Fair.
Immediately upon tho reading of the
eesage in the House, Speaker Sheehan '!
ipointed tho Gommittoa op JMyilegea 11

by resolution to sit where it P

The announcement of the suspension
f Colonel Forsytbo came like a flash,
nd created amazement in some minds.
Ilftcial mouths are closed to all inquiries
n the subject. It will probably become
uown to tJ'tt general public, however,

The unfortunate disposition o! the

oesibly the greater part, of the foundaion
for Colonel Foreythe's suspension.

are rife hero that the 3,500 Indians on
tho Turtle Mountain reservation are
liable at any moment to inaugurate a
massacre of settlers living along tho i
I North Dakota borders. This buad of rod 1
men, among whom there is a largo num- ]
ber of half-breeda, havo been ugly for a 1
long time, aud several times have given
trouble. The troops at this fort are
ready to do anything in their power to ?
quell an uprising, but their power to do
is limited, owing to the fact that the
garrison is made up of ouly one company ,
of lees than 100 men. Company B, loth
infantry, is stationed at Fort Pembina, c
aud will be called here in case qf an oi;t- e
brea|c. j
The immediate cause of the trouble
outside oi the general unrest among the 1
Indians iu all parra of tbe northwest, is ?
the failure of the United States Commie- I
sion to remove the Indians of the Turtle *
Mountain reservation to White Earth, j

PiiiLADSLPiiiAi Pa., Jan. 0.?The Vice
Chancellor's chamber In Camden yesterday
afternoon was crowded with members
and officers of tbe Ancient Order
Knights o! the Mystic Chain.
The occasion was the trial of John
Stanley, of Piedmont, W. Vs., Supreme
Commander, and Charles Stanloy, Vice
Commander of the order, on a role to
ehow caase why they; should not bo committed
for contempt in refusing to obey
an order of the court restraining them
from organizing a Select Castle In tbe
State of New Jersey.
The plaintiffs in the case, who are the
Select officers o[ the New Jersey Department,
were all on tbe stand against the
Supreme body. The story told by them
was to tbe ofleci that the Supreme Commandery,
alter issuing n call lor delegates
in Camden, beard of certain Court
proceedings and refused to go to Camden.
They subsequently were served ,
with the restraining order, but notwithstanding;
they went to Trenton and organized
the select body.
Tbe defendants deuiod these state
mento, and Chancellor Green decided ,
that there wag no reason why he should .
xramit thorn for contempt, as they had ,
irganind the body previous to being ,
lerved with the court's order restrainon
them from doing the samo.
The original case, on an order to show ,

ponded, should not servo, was taken up .

London, Jan. ti.?Tho l'rcu Auociation
of this city announces that Lard Salisbury
Is engaged in the consideration of
the lortypage dispatch received from
Mr. Blaine December 30, the latest dispatch
received from Washington. It
iloen not contain a definite acceptance
of Lord Salisbury's proposals for arbitration
on the main question, that of
' he right of British fioalers to catch saala
in Bullring Sea. Thn Prrta Association
uys that Mr. Blaine discusses only tho
mosidlary point?on the time of closing
.tie sealing. The rreu Auociation adds
that Mr. Blaine has not replied to Sir
lullau Pauucefote's noto of Jnne las',
n which tho latter says Her Majesty 's
[overament must hold the government
)f the United States responsible for the
consequences arising from acts of intererenco
with British vessels contrary to

Washington, Jan. <3.?Several prom:*
ent members of the Foroign Relations
tommittees of the Senate and Home
peak in high terms of Secretary
Elaine's masterly letter to Lord Sali6ury
on the Behring Sea controversy.
Th'oy regard the position assumed by
je administration as impregnable. The
uefitious which tho Secretary is willing
tiould be left to arbitration involve all
le material points of the controversy,
) that if Eaglaud is anxious for a
eaceful solution of the matters at issu*
le now has an easy way out of ths
ifficulty.

London, Jan. 0.?The Pall hfall Gazelle
lys: "Mr. Blaine obviously means to
y more "bounce" for tho sake of makig
political capital. We are convinced,
owever, that the Americans will not
ipport Mr. Blaine. It is imperative to
rbitrato tho matter in dispute."
Tho Globe says that it attributes th? ,
iction to Mr. Blaine's "bragging spread
igleistn," and it is of the opinion that
in view of a possible, though unlikely,
isplay of American force in Behriug sea,
reat Britain ought instantly to strength1
