THE SEBEL YELL Raised in the House Yesterda by Ex-Confederates. THE GETTYSBURG MONUMEN' Appropriation, Though Scarcely Ad equate, Brlnga Oat the True Feeling* of Some Democrat*?Col. White Votes Against It. I 9]XCtal DUpalch to the InUUtacnccr. Charleston, W. Va., Much 11.?Thi flood gates ot oratory were opened to-da] and a tide of eloquence, unequaled a the present aeaaion, poured forth. It seemed (or a time that the wai was to be (ought over agiin, but thi Union (orces retrained from hostilities simply holding their position againsi the Confederate attack, and the Con (ederates, after firing a (ew volleys with' out effect, (ell back in good order. Their army was composed chiefly 01 Clark, of Greenbrier, and was com manded by Dandridge, of Jefferson with Johnson, of Monroe, as aide. Hoe tilities began when Randal], of Harrison moved to insert in the general appro priation bill, an item approprlatingSl.CfX to West Virginia's soldiers dead al Gettysborg. Dandridge, ol Jefferson objected on the ground that West Vir K1U1U HBU UU UUUptJ ttb VJOtb/BUUIK. II itwasnroper to erect a monument to Virginia soldiers who fell^ then he would vote for it gladly, but could not as it was. This brought Colonel Welch to hie feet. He said some of the bravest, noblest and grandest of the heroes who fell at Gettysburg were from West Virginia. they fought, bled and died there to preserve inviolate the grandest government upon which the sun ever shone. The appropriation was a small one and it should be given ungrudgingly. There were West Virginia aoldiera at Gettysburg and they were ai braveand as honorable as the soldiers of any State in the Union. Mr. Dandridge eaid he was there and Oolonel Welch said he ought to have been shot or hung before he ever got away. But he wanted it understood that no one had a more profound respect for the honest, brave Confederate soldier than ho. He believed America had never furnished a grander figure than General Lee. but the soldiers of the Union from this State were as brave, as true and as gallant bs any Confederate who ever followed the star* and bars. They fought to preserve our government and "their works live after them. They will not be forgotten, whether this appropriation is made or not, but the Stale owes it to her soldiers and it will be to her disgrace if she does not pay it. Mr. Clark, of Greenbrier, who shewed his mettle early in the session on the Force bill resolution and other questions that gave him au opportunity to air his Confederate record, opposed any appropriation. He said rigljt on the ground hallowed by the blood of gallant Confederates who fell fighting for what they believed was right, at annua! reunions, they were denounced as traitors. He mentioned Senator Ingalls's speech on such an occasion. He claimed there were no West Virginia soldiers at Gettysburg and again took occasion to refer to home guards as plunderers and horse thieves. Mr. Greer, of Mason county, dooa not speak often, but he speaks well. He mado an earnest and eloquent appeal for the appropriation, and his soldier inonos, nuu i*i?y uenru n, wuuiu unve been satisfied that they made no mistake in choosing him as their delegate. Mr. Johnston, of Monroe, moved to amend the amendment by devoting the amount to t&e erection of a monument to both Union and Confederate soldiers. Mr. 8mith, of Tyler, is an old soldier, and is also one of the ablest members on the Republican side, although he has not bad much to say at this eesaion, knowing it was useless, generally, in the face of the overwhelming Democratic majority, but he could not remain silent on this occasion. He denied the assertion that no West Virginia soldiert were engaged there. Ho Baid he had the honor to belong to a West Virginia regiment previous" to Jnly, 1803. West Virginia bad the loyalty and the patriotism to stand by the Government of the Fathers and to send just as true soldier! to the field as any titate in the Union, Their courage, their honor, and tbeii grand achievements don't rest upon a potty appropriation of $1,000 for a monument at Gettysburg. Those things will live alter thoir columinatora are forgotten. He said to the opponents o! the appropriation: "If you don't want to give it don't do it. Your action can* not detract from the honor, the valoi and the patriotism of West Virginia's soldiers if you don't give a cent. Thii appropriation is entirely too small but | if you, gentlemen on the other side, can't givo it cheerfully don't give it at all We don't want it." Colonel WeJclj fcftd not been silent during the discussion','and altboqgh he made no oratorial efforts he could not refrain from putting in a word in season and out of season as hia feelings dictated Ue said be owed it to himself and to hit nnuntrv to call for an ave and no vote. fie wanted the people who opposed it U put theuiselyei op renord. Before tbe vote i'w 1*1(10, Oolono Freer expressed himself on the subfecl. It is needless to sav that he attractei the attention of everybody in the Honse iiis speech was brief but it was probablj bis moot eloquent effort at this session lie said no V?na J;g<l Greater respect o; ettoem for the Coufeaexatfl joliiier thai he.

It wa the politicians who tried to stir up dii coril and make cats' paws of the soldien and tha people to pull their own cbesl nuts out of the /)re. The amendmen was only intended to (till the origins amendment which should be adoptee not only to nay a just tribute to Wee Virginia soldiers, but for the credit o tbe State itself. Mr. Thompson favored Mr. Johnston' amendment in a brief speech, butth members were crowing wear; of th discussion and the previous qgestjo waa called for, Johnston's amendment was defeats by a vote of 28 to 24. The motion t appropriate was adopted by a vote of J to It, Bonis, Brown, Carney, Olarl Dandridge, Pinley, IJolt, Johnston, Kei dall Llnvllle, Prichsrd, Prince, dhnmeti and White, of Logan, and White, < Ohio, voting against It.

PALMEB ELECTED | To the United States Senate by | the Illinois Legislature AFTER A LONG DRAWN FIGHT, j | Two Farmers' Alliance Men Leave J Their Candidate and go to Palmer x after the Republicans Offer i to Eelect the Farmer. Spbikofikld, III., March 11.?'The j long fight over the United States Sena- ? torahip ended to-day. Gen. John M. Palmer was elected on the 154th ballot. I It appeared to be a foregone conclu- t tion this morning that Mr. Palmer wonld be elected, bat the Republicans were not ready to go down without a * struggle. They held k caucus to see if they couldn't at least kill ofl the Democratic candidate, and the Bteering com- n mittee sent for Repigsentative Moore, fl one of the F. M. B. A..men, and offered ' the solid Republican vote of 100 if he and his two conferee^, Oockrell and 0 Taubeneck, would join them. This of- 2 fer was considered goocf politics. If accepted in would defeat Gen. Palmer and b put the F. M. B. A. men under obliga- ei tiocs to the Republican*; If rejected, it b WUU1U pub mo inuuoiB ill nuowivuiaivuii m positioa ot refusing to help elect a w farmer. It was a tempting lure, but h Moore did not lose bis head, saying that j be bad decided to vote for Palmer. et A few minutes before the meeting of ? the Assembly the Republicans joineu in C( the chorus of "Auld Lang Syne," amid a great applause. The Democrats also it struck up a melody, but of rather more r cheerful nature. In tbe meantime the B| Chamber was occupied by an eager x throng, and when a call of the roll was tc ordered there was intense excitement. cj Representative Taubenock, whon bis ?j name was called, voted for "A. J, j0 Streeter, nominee of the F. M. B. A, j0 party," and, dropping to his seat, burst m into tears. 6incere Borrow moved him, w, and cheer after cheer from the Kepubli- te can side rewarded his loyalty to his |u party nomineo. y( When the ballot was completed tho p, verification of the roll showed every Jj Republican voting for Lindley, every jj Democrat for Palmer, Moore and Cock- |n rell for Palmer, and Taubaneck for ac Streeter. The Democratic representsLives cheered themselves hoarse, and. mounting their desks, threw hats ana papers and baskets in tbe air, and sevbra! members blew horns. When the tumult subsided, Senatorilect'Palmer was introduced, and made G in address, in which he thankod the ]a members for tho honor conferred upon , :iim. The Assembly then adjourned ir tine die, * to Moore and Cockrell received many bl beautiful floral pieces from members hi ind friends, and after the adjournment to }f the House great crowds pressed iround them and shook bauds and con- ta jratuiaieu uiem, n.? mrong lnciuainga nireat many ladies. Fire bells aod church bells all over the city were rang as soon of as Palmer's election was made known, A and on public buildings and private tt bouses flags were hoisted and bunting si bung out. A This has been a gala day for the capi- fii tol city of Illinois. For nearly a year, ai in fact since General Palmer favored the la movement in the West for the election su oi United States Senators by the voto of th the people, it hAs been the cherished p; dream of his Springfield friends and tb admirers throughout the State that he might ultimately be choBen as the sue* ceesor of Douglas in the prairie tState and the first Democratic United 8tatcs 11 Senator from Illinois since the days of the "Little Giant," thirty years ago. This dream finally has boen realized p, and the pent up exultation of the D? Springfield and Illinois Democracy has found expression in every form of hilar- 01 Lty and celebration known to the refine- ol menta of civilization. tr Indeed, when usually exultant parti- L sans found tho restraints of civilization st too confining for a proper expression of en their feelings, they have resorted to pi gongs, horns and other primitive sound m making devices oftener utilized by the tb South Sea Islanders and aborigines than ui by the great Anglo-Saxon race. ca All the afternoon and evening squads tb Df shouting and cheering, Democrats, re headed frequently by a man with a tin 0t born, gong or somo improf ised musical instrument, have marched through the Btreets and when tired they have in- P, variably wound up at General Palmer's residence where, entirely unmindful of tho fact that the General was at his office several blocks away or seeking seclusion G in the Democratic 8tate Committee fi rooms, they have given cheer after cheer m for the Democratic Senator-elect. John Macauley Palmer was born in 8cott county, Kv., in 1817. In 1831 be o\ emigrated to Madison couftty, 111. Young fc Palmer xeceived a little schooling dur- it ing the summer of 1838. He formed the avquaintance of Stephen A. Douglass, tl then making his first canvass for Oon- ri gress. Young, eloquent, and in political w accord with Mr. Palmer, he won the lat- h ter's confidence and fixed his purpose to ei enter upou we Biuny gj iue mw, uuu uo m ih admitted to practice in 1839. ri From that time on Mr. Palmer was si much interested in politics. Id 1843 be gi became Probate Judge, and Id 1847 be whs elected to the State Constitutional Convention. Ia 1852 he was electcd to ? tbe State Senate. He ran tor Congress 7 in 18511, but waa defeated.

In 1801 be waa appointed one of tbe five delegates (all Republicans) Bent by Illinois to the x Peace Congress at Washington. When tbe civil var broke out he was elected colonel o( tbe Fourteenth Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and partici- ? pated in tbe engagements at Island No. G 10, Parmington, Cbickauiauga and Stone ? River, and for hie gallantry at the latter T, Slace was made major general. Under J eneral Sherman be waa aasigned the ? Fourteenth Army Corps, and partici- ? pated in the Atlanta, campaign. In ' February, 1805, he was aasigned to the ? military administration of Kentucky. , General Palmer waa nominated for * Governor of Illinois by tbe Republicsns p in 1808, and elected by a large majority. His political course during his term waa auch as to siienate him from his party, and he became a Democrat, which be I has ever ainco been, but, though a force t in politics jince tj)en, he has feqialned In t private life. He received the endorse- j ment of the Democratic State Conven- a tion, held in June laat, for the office oi t United Sutea Senator, and the inatruc- j tions which every Democratic Senator j. sod fiepreseotiUve elected in Noyem- , bet lsit received were oonalderedaaobli- j gating him to vote for no one else for .
