Washington, D. 0., Oct. 19.?When
the senate this morning entered upon
the third division of tho legislative
day of Tuesday, at tho expiration of tho
recess at 10 o'clock this morning, less
than a dozen senators were present,
i-f an Imiir wiw rnnsiimed in

eecuring a quorum.
Tho New York and New Jersey
bridge bill was laid before ttie senate
and referred to tho committee on commerce.
A report from tho flnanco committee
was presented and read containing tho
communication from the treasury department
in response to a resolution
calling for information us to tbe probabilityof
a deficiency in the revenues of
the government. Tho comraittoes
shows a deficit for the first three months
of the present fiscal year to bo over
$21,000,000 at the rate of over $87,000,000
for tho year. It shows tho actual
expenditures during tlio first three
months to have been ovur $08,000,000,
or an average of about $33,000,000 a
month. At mo nauio ram uie MAptniuiture
for tho year would aggregate about
$31)4,000,000. or about $21,000,000 moro
tiiun tho estimated expensos and would
show an increase in expenditures over
supposed actual receipts of a littlo over
The secretary says a definite forecast
for tho whole vear is impossible, but
it is apparent trtat should the present
conditions continue the deficit at tho
end of tho year would bo about $50,
Mr. Stewart (Rep., Nevada) thon took
tho iloor on the motion to amond tho
journal of Monday last so as to show the
presence of Mr. Teller when he failed to
answer to his name on a roll call. Ho
argued that in the midst of an excited
discussion was not tho timo to change
the rules of tho senate.
Mr. Stewart soon drifted into a general
discussion of tho silver question.
In conclusion Mr. Stewart said the appeal
to tho vice president to make himself
infamous throughout all tho ages
was mostoutraceous. llo was an American,
and would not lay his hand upon
the constitution and laws of tho country.
Tho rulos woro mado for occasions
to*protect tho minority, and they would
protect tho minority.
Mr. Dubois (Hop., Idaho) regarded
ttio present as an unioriunato occasion
to attempt to change the rules. No senator
would oppose by obstructive mothoda
tho will of the people expressed at
the polls, and there could bo no doubt
thopeoplo han spoken through the instrumentality
of the ballot on the tarifl
Mr. liill?Docs tho senator know of
any method under the existing rules
whereby the majority can pass this or
any other bill, provided twenty senators
are determined that it shall not
pass ?
Mr. Dubois?I say that any bill which
tho poople of this country desire passed,
and on which they have voted, will be
passed bv tho senate.
"By a vote."
"Do you know?" Mr. Hill askod,
"any mothod under existing rules
whoreby a bill can bo passed, if twonty
senators insist that it shall not bo
"Tho same mothod which has applied
to the foundation of the government,"
replied Mr. Dubois.
Mr. Dubois said a majority favprod a
compromise. In respect to tho criticism
oi himsolf for not voting. Mr. Dubois
said it was his pleasure and delight to
sit in tho senate, but if his expulsion
from the sonato would prevent the passage
of tho repeal bill he would not hesitate
for a moment. Ho would not reply
to the romarks of Mr. White, of Louisiana,
favoring the/expulsion of a senator
for refusing to vote. Ho could not
ailord in the senate of tho Uuited States
to use tho language of the bar-room.
Mr. Quay (Kop., Fa.) gavo notice of
an amendment to tho repeal bill providing
that the act shall tako eiloct on
January 1,18%.
Mr. Call, (Dem. Fin.) opposed any
ehango in tho rulos and was followed
by Mr. Butlor, (Dem. S. C.) in an impassioned
argument against the propositions
of thy eenator from Now York
(Mr. Hill) niuj tj,0 senator from Texas
(Mr. Mills.) li their doctrine were correct,
why not not make a bonfire of
tho rules of tho senate.
Mr. Hill propounded to Mr. Butler
the question ho had asked Mr. Dubois?
to point out how a vote could bo reached
on the bill.
Mr. Butler repiiod that when tho
majority found itself in that position
with a strong, detormitiwd, .sincere anxiety
to nass a bill it would mako some
concession in order to got it through;
and if that was not dono tho bill ought
not to pass.
'Then if 1 understand it," said Mr.
Hill, "U is not the majority that passes
a bill in this body, and the bill* passed
do not reflect tiio sentiment of tno majority,
but of the minority."
"Oh, no," dissented Mr. Butlor.
"The plain doctrine announced by tho
senator from South Carolina is that the
majority cannot pass a bill, because it
mint always compromise with the
minority. I do not boliovo that."
Mr. Butler denied that that was his
position and said that the senator from
Now York hnd boiled the que&iion.
"1 understand," paid Mr. Hill, the
senator from South Carolina, that if a
majority refuse to compromise with a
minority a bill ouj;ht not to pass."
Mr. Butler?And I repeat it.
Mr. Hill?And there I take iesue with
the senator.
Mr. Butler?I state that the minority
is clothed witii the constitution and the
rules made in pursuance of it with
power to prevent the passage of obnoxious
measures, and when tho majority ;
has expressed itself in a constitutional
way, in accordance with the rules, then
I submit it haj the power and right to
pass measures and not till then.
.Mr. Palmer?Does tho senator believe i
that tho majority has a right to voto for
a measure?
Mr. Sutler?That depends upon how
the majority behaves itself. [Laughter.]
.. Air. Palmer?But they cannot vote unless
they accedo to the plan of the minority.
Mr. Butler?Yea, they can vote.
Mr. Palmer?When can I, as one of
the senators from Illinois, be allowod to
voto ?
Mr.Butlor?When debateis exhausted.
Mr. Palmer?Then 1 understand this
to be the interpretation of tho senator i
from South Carolina that until tho minority
consonts tho majority cannot
vote. The minority has the right, in I
good faith, to exorcise the fullest debate,
but I deny that it lias tho right to
debate for the purpose of exhausting
Mr. Butler?Nobody has done that. t
Mr. Palmer?It has been claimed by (
several that the minority had tho right >
lo aaopt oosirueuve ineinous.
Several senators uttered an emphatic :
"no." ,
Mr. Butler?Who is to determine i
whether 1 am an obstructionist? i
Mr. Palmer?Firat the senator him- 1
self, and second tho majority of the
eenate. [Applause in tho galleries.]
Mr. Harris, rising to a question of or- I
der, said it was a gross violation of tho
rules for occupants of tho galleries to i
give expression to approval or di?ap- f
Tho Vico President?Does the senator '
move to have tho galleries eleared? j
Mr. Stewart?1 would. I
Mr. Harris?I will if the oflenae is re- '
peated. I
Tho Vico President admonished the
naileries to observe tho rules, announc- 1
ing that upon a repetition of theoilenso i
ho would order tho galleries cleared. 1
When order was restorod, Mr. Butler
snid: "I am perfectly woll aware that <
under tho rules of thin body, which the 1
senator from New York and tho senator 1
from Texas are ready to trample unon,
cast aside and discard, and eonvert tho <
senate inio a town meeting, no applause 1
shall bo allowed in the galleries, and if 1
1 Jiavo boon the moana?nobody ap- 1
plauda me?but if tho friends of the J
senator irora Now York arc gathered
hero for tho purposoof expressing their
approbation of his methods, 1 should
be very glad, Mr. President, to invito
that senator out upon some street corner,
whoro ho and I can have it out for
UlO UL'UCIU OI iuu uiiiaaus.
Mr. Manderson?I* riso to a point of
order. 1 ask tho enforcement of tlio
rule that when a sonator ia culled to ,
order, he shall tnko his seat.
Mr. Butler?Does the seuator call me i
to order?
Mr. Manderson?I do.
Tho vice president directed Mr. Butler
to tako his seat. Tho laneuago for
which Mr. Butler was called to order :
was then road by tho official reporter,
Mr. bhuey.
Mr. Manderson roalized that tho do- i
bate for tho last few days had been characterized
by a de^roo of personality unbecoming
senators who have indulged <
in it and not befitting tho chamber, lie i
thoueht all that was nocossary was that
in cool moments tho senator from South
Carolina should hear tho repotition,of
tho words ho had used.
On motion of Mr. Harris Mr. Butler
was allowed to proceod in order, and
said ho had used tho language in a playful
"in a Tickwickian sense," said Mr.
"Yes that is a better expression."
Mr. Butler said nothing was further
from his intontion than to say anything I
unkind, llo had not invited tho sonator
to moet him on a street corner to
tight, but for tho purpoao of a little
legitimate stump spoakinir.
Mr. Butler then asked Mr. Hill
whothor he would bo bound by the i
rulos in tho proposition to amend the
rules. ^ i
Alter Mr. Hill had said in a most i
significant way that "the sonator from
South Carolina need not bo impatient," i
about the method to bo purauod to
bring about a chango of tho rules, he i
continued: "1 insist upon it that any
restriction in tho rules whero tho majority
are deprived of power, and of ;
making an amondmont to tho rules is j
not binding upon the senate."
"Tho position is this, then," said Mr. >
Butler, "that the rulos are binding upon
tho minority and do not bind tho majority."
"That is not tho position," repliod
Mr. Hill, "wo cannot tie ourselves up
so that tho majority has not tho right
to amend the rulos."
Mr. Butlor?If tho senator will pardon
me wo have tied ourselves up by a
code of rulos to which tho senator subscribed
whon ho took the oath. Now,
1 understand tho sonator to say
that ho is not bound by a codo of rules |
except so far as it moots his approval." j
Mr. Hill?It wo have, as the senator
says, tied ourselves up so wo cannot j
chango the rules, then 1 propose to |.
untie tho rulos so that wo can be per- j
inittod to change them.
.Mr, Butler?How?
M r. Hill?By simply presenting at tho |
proper time and hour and place and oc- j
I casion to be determined by the major- i
ity an amendment to our rules and then 1
I procoed.
I "Without notice?" asked Mr. Vest. |
I "As regulated bv the majority," re- j
| nlied Mr. Hill, "and thou vote uuon it. j
lithe majority desire to change tho ;
; rule thoro in no practical difficulty."
| .Mr. Butler?Then 1 understand the
Honator from New York in proceeding j
i to change the rr.los would disregard
j rulo 40.
Mr. Hill?Thus far 1 havo proceeded j
I within the letter of the rule. Tho post- J
lion of tlio majority upon this question
will depend upon the attitude of tho
Mr. Butler?Then I understand tho
senator would not bo bound by tho
rules in proceeding to amend, but
would amend the rules according to the
will of tho ma'ority, at any hour and
any da v.
^Ir. IIill?I have said that the power
to change tho rules is a constitutional
right. It overrides any particular rule.
Mr. Butler?I am not asking what tho
majority would do; Iain asking what
the sonator from New York would do.
Mr. Hill?X hopo 1 am one of the majority.
I hopo that beforo tho debate is
through a majority will bo found
by my sido ready to insist upon tho
constitutional right to amend the ruloa
whereby wo can carry out the provisions
of the constitution that tho majority,
and not tho minority, with tho
powor to legislate.
Mr. Butler?To tho proceeding there '
would be no objection, not the slightest, i
1 have finally got tho senator from Now
York to a point, which I confess was ]
rather difficult [Laughter.] ,
Mr. Stewart remarked that Mr. Hill (
was on the fence on tho silver question,
which brought forth tho reply from Mr. ]
Duller that when the persuasivo elo- .
quence of the senator from Nevada had ,
had a little further play the New York ,
senator would drop completely over on |
the hi Ivor side. [Laughter.] ,
Mr. Stewart modestly coucurrod in ,
this view. (
Mr. Hoar askod Mr. Butler a ques- ;
lion, which he answered in the Yankee
fashion by asking another: whether i
tho senator from Massachusetts held i
that the senate could change its rules i
except ifnder the rules. <
Mr. Hoar?It there wore a motion
made to amend tho rules, and that i
lifter debate, or after what is called ]
lillibustering had gone bo far that in 2
the opinion ot ttie constitutional presiding
oflicor of this body, who is
chosen by the American people and not
by the senate, and whose duty is prescribed
by the constitution had reached
a point which applied to his mind that
further discussion was intended to present
action, it would bo in his power
md would bo his duty to say to the
enato shall 1 put this question without
further debate or dilatory motions, and
thereupon to direct the yeas and nays
to bo called, permitting 110 man to
interfere, and if a majority of the senate
mid "yea," it would bo his duty to put
that question.
Mr. Butler said that as fair a man as ,
the vice president was, he should resent '
making him the depository of the power
lo say when debate should terminate,
;von with his party in the majority, bo- 1
;auso it was, in his opinion, subversive j
lo the very foundation principles upon
ivhich the government was framed.
Mr. Butler, referring to the remarks 1
if Mr. .Mills, of Texas, said that the 1
rovernment wa^paralyzed becaoso ono ,
ittle measure *could not bo gotton (
through tho senate as rapidly and as (
hurriedly as its advocates demanded. ,
l'ho particular measure ponding before 1
the senate might be paralyzed [laughter],
but tho government was not. Taking }
up tho remark of Mr. Mills that ho and j
tiie senator from Ohio (Mr. Sherman) ]
would grasp hands on tho pending bill, ]
drew a laughable picture of the senator (
from Ohio, whom he characterized as (
the arch enemy of silver, and tho sena- (
tor from Texas voluptuously embracing j
one another, "and when "the election ,
laws are reached, if the government gots .
over its paralysis, and when tho tarill
bill for revenue only is reached, if it j
survives that paralysis, how tho soaa- ;
tor from Texas will rush into the arms ,
r>f the senator from Ohio and embrace j
hi 111 again and again, becausoof the fact ,
that they had shaken hands across tho \
financial chasm." [Laugh tor. j
Hut, Mr. President, tlie age of won- ?
ilera and surprises would not end with (
seeing nio in tlio arms of the senator |
from Kansas and the senator from ,
Texas in the arms of the senator from
Ohio. Wo shall, I hope, live to soo a j
long, fond, cordial, gushing embrace ,
between the senator from Now York, }
(Mr. llill), and the President oi the
United States. [Laughter.]
"That would be a picture for tlio
artist. I low long and lingering and 1
loving it will be. [Laughter.]
Mr. Butler closed with an appeal for
a compromise, and Mr. Palmer was ]
about to address tlio senate when Mr.
Teller withdrew his motion to amend (
the journal, disposing of the question f
ponding boforo the senate. The journ- I
ill was approved and the repeal bill was 2
then taken up, for tho first tiuio since
Mr. Mnnderson gave notice of an (
amendment to tho rules. Jt provides 1
that if upon a vote by yeas and nays it 1
appears to tho chair upon recapitulation 1
and before the announcement of the ro- !
suit that a quorum has not voted he 1
shall call upon sonators present and
not voting by namo to vote, and 1
shall direct the secretary to add to the '
list of senators voting the names of sen- 1
utors present and not votiug, including !
thoso announcing pairs or those who
may or may not bo excused from voting,
and to enter tho same on tho journal. 1
