Washington*, I). C., Nov. 3.?At 3 i
o'clock this afternoon thn extraordinary
Feaaion of the Fifty-third Congress, ?
after being in session eighty-seven Jays c
| and threo hours, adjourned without t
day. A wrangle between tho house and ^
I senate over an appropriation to pay *
' the aenate session employes for work
done during tho recess of tho Fifty-first v
Congress in 1S90 cauaod tho failure of *
the general deficiency bill and tho bill g
providing for tho payment of clerks t
and employes during tho adjournment v
interval between to-day and tho con- r
voning of tho regularaession, December v
4. The Keuato was determined that
this appropriation should be agreed to
| by the house, with tho alternative of f(
Kit-rilicing the deficionoy bill, and Sona- 1
tor Cockroll, chairman of tho appro- fll
nnations committee, sent word that .
not ;w dollar of deficiency would bo
agreed t-> by tho senate until tho house fl
accepted this amendment, which had ^
I i-cn tacked on to tlie deficiency bill. 0
Tho final adjournment resolution had 8
been pasaod, and in this way tho senate tj
expected to force tho house toviold. t]
to make assurance doubly sure t ie y
senate also placed the same amendment ^
on the bill providing pay for session n
employes and clerks to members dur- ^
in# the recess and sent word that if j(
their amendment was agreed to the de- a
ficioncy bill would bo released from con- 8(
forence whore it was being held as if in J|
chancery by the eonate. a
Inasmuch as every member of the ji
house was oersonally interested in the c.
resolution to keep his clerk on the pay fl(
roll during the recess, tliey seemed to
hold the whip hand, but the plan was a
defeated by a filibuster inaugurated by *\
Mr. Kichardson, of Texas, lie was ?
opposed to the resolution to pay the ^
employes of Congress during the recess, ^
hut was easily outgeneraled by the parliamentarians
who opposed him. When q
the resolution came back to the house, ^
however, with the senate amendment Cl
on as a rider, it was about 3 o'clock. p
.Mr. Richardson 8aw that if ho could t|
hold the house at bay for the space of Cl
hut a few minutes the adjournment ji
would give him victory. The senate j}
was immediately notified of the aituation
in tho house and a resolution was 'i
hurriedly passed extending the timo of c
adjournment to 4:30 but the ellort came p
t??o late. 3Ir. Richardson with Kilgoro \
on his left hand and Boon, tho Nebras
kn Populist, on his right, hold hi* postlion
until threw o'clock when the house, p
by its own previous action, was declnr- v
ed by Speaker Crisp adjourned sine die.
W'nilo the house adjourned at threo c
o'clock to the jecond, the acuate, also ,,
adjourning by resolution simultaneous- *
Iv, did not in realty adjourn until soven
minutes later.
Tho sesaion of the senate will bo long
memorable for tho contest over the C
bill providing for the repoal of the w
purchasing clauao of the silver purchas- tl
ing act of 1800, known as tho Sherman ].
law. The extraordinary eossion was
called for tho purpose of accomplishing '
this repeal, and tho other work accom- 1
pliahed was merely incidental. That a
bill reached tho senato after passing
tho house on tho 28th of August, and ?
was not passed by the aenato until tho J'
30th of October. How for thoso two M
months the senate contended over the c
issues involved, but at last brought tho fj
bill through and passed it by a safe 1
majority, aro all matters of rocord and 0
art; familiar to the public. Tho bill pro- u
vides in etfect for tho cessation of the "
purchase and coinage of silver, and may *
bo said to mark a revolution in the
financial history of the country. While a
the records show that it was tho house ri
bill which became a law, that is only ^
technically true, as tho senate subati- a
tuted u measure of its own and tho 0
house accepted tho substitute. Tho ^
bill of next greatest importance to tho r
repeal bill which has passed both
hou?es of Congress is tho bill extending a
the time in which tho Chinese laborers r
can register under tho Chinese act, *
known as tho Geary law. Much inter- |
st attachos to tho bill providing for a *
liridge across tiie Hudson at Now York.
i'his bill passed both houses.
Of tho 1,132 bills which have been in- T
troducod in the senate duriug tho session
which closed to-day, only twelve
have passed that body, and of these
only threo havo passed tho houso of r
representatives, received tho President's C
^ nature and becdmo laws. Of tho r
three new laws originating in tho senate,
one is in aid of the mid-winter interna- r
tional exposition, to be held in San v
Francisco, another grants certain set- s
tiers in Oklahoma Territory tho right to t
commute their homestead entries, and (j
ti - third nihtoa to clerks in tho otfieo v
"i inocoinimsaioners of the District of \
Columbia. t
T; sonate has in addition to thoso ^
bills of its own passed fourteen house j:
bills, the most important of thoso being n
hou^o bill No. 1 for the repeal of the S
purchasing clause of tho Shorman act. d
1 he other liou-o bills passed by tho sen- b
ate relate to lands in the Sioux Indian v
roservation in Nebraska and South
Dakota, lo the United States courts in
Jdaho and Wyoming and South Dakota,
to the New York and Now Jersoy bridge, c
to steam revenue cutters for the great M
lakes and for the New England coast,
to the annual work on unpatented 1
mining claims, the increase of officers
of tho army detailed at colleges, amend- ^
montot tho Chineso exclusion net, the ^
others being bills of a private character. ^
Of the hou-e resolutions passing the
annate, thoae worthy of note aro: That c
relating to ibo -Mormon church prop- b
< rtv in Salt Lake City; that providing j
for the nublication oi .VJ,000 additional |
copies of the compendium of tho 11th I
Census; that for the romoval of ocean c
derelicts, and that conferring diplomas | t
in World Fair artisans through the
>oard of lady manage* *. It will bo
een that the session of the senate
ias not been noteworthy on account of
ho bills and resolutions which liavo
>assed that body. The total all told is
>oly 42.
The senate will not be without maerial
to work upon when it shall reconene
in December. The calendar issued
o-day shows sixty-three bills and rcsoutions
reported by committees and
endy for the attontion of the senate.
i large proportion of these bills and
('solutions relate to private claims, and
hero are also several relating to the
inances which had connection with tho
opeal bill and which are not now pertilent.
Probably tho most important
nil upon tho senate calendar is that
or the repeal of the federal election

esolution by Senator Call 'dispensing

Tho chief bill that failed in tho extra '
[ission of tho house was that providing 1
jr tho urgent deficiencies. .
The most important item in this men- '
lire was that which provided for tho '
jnitors and custodians of public build- J
atra throughout tlio country. Thoro waa !
n item of $200,000 to pay clerks to mem* 1
ors but that will be passed later withut
causing any hindrance to public bit- :
iness like tho first named approprialon.
Thoro have been introduced in 1
lio house at this session 1.300 bills and 1
7 joint resolutions. Of this entire num- (
er 100 have been reported from com- '
littee and 58 have passed tho houae. 1
lost of those which have passed are of '
>cal interest to tho sections where they *
pply and have boon pressed to moot '
duio necessity which existed. Some of 1
liese have become laws by favorable '
ction in tho senate and receiving tho ]
'resident 8 approval. Others are yet in
omruittee or on tho calendar of the
en ate.
Of those that have become laws tho
ct next in importance originating in

Washington*, 1). C., Nov. 3.?"Tho
adjournment of this Ions to bo remetnbored
session of Congress brings with it
a great senso of relief," said Senator
Voorhees, who had been asked by an
Associated Press repie tentative for an
intorview and it was with tho above
statement ho began.
"We met amidst tho crash of business
disasters, bank failures, and all the
distressful incidents of one of tho worst
financial panics ever known in this or
any other country; we adjourn with
quiet business circles, and a fair degree
of restored conlidonce prevailing in all
parts of tho country. It will, of course,
take time for the various business pursuits
to fully rocover from tho overwhelming
financial shock and depression
which have afllicted the country
for tho last six months, but the signs of
healthy improvement are now visible

Roviowing the events of the session
ho Raid:
"In looking hack over the incidents
and scones whicli marked tlio session
just closed, I have nothing but pleasant
and kindly feelings toward all. I attribute
my succoss in the management
of my bill to the fact that while firm'
and uncompromising in pushing it forward,
I aimed at all timos to be pationt,
liberal and fair towards every member
sf the senate, and I am now thoroughly
convinced that a contrary course would
have resulted in defeat, i believe such
is the opinion also, of every senator;
very many of them have personally so
assured me."
Replying to a question as to whothor
lie over felt any doubt of the success of
repeal, Mr. Voorhees said:
"The darkest hour for the bill was
Senator Sherman's famous Interview a
month ago, in which ho encouraged its
jnemies and discouraged its friends by
declaring in the strongest terms that
unconditional repeal could never pass
the senate. I felt that blow more than
my other in the long contest, and, in
iny judgment, it prolonged the fight at.
least two weeks more than it would
otherwise have been."

The mooting was originally fixed for
Friday last, but it was prevented by the
action of tho Radicals, a body of whom
invaded tho hall and refused to allow
tho Liberals to proceed. Tho police
had to finally clear the hall of all the
occupants and lock tho door<?.
Then it was arranged to hold the
meeting this evening, when only those
persons who held tickets should bo admitted.
By 7:30 o'clock Scholling strasse,
leading to the music hall, was thronged
with clamorous mobs of Socialists and
workmen, intent upon mischief. They
jeered every Liberal who arrived and
tried to block his passage, but 300
Liberals succeeded in gaining entrance
to t he building under protection of the
The mob continuod to increaso in
numbers and to grow moro boisterous.
They shouted, "Down with tho Liberals."
"Down with tho dogs," and
| "Down with the cowardly enemies of
I the poonlo," and sang the labor song,
j "JJcd Arbeit." Tho mob, ns tho noise
i increased, grew moro bold, and'they
finally made a charge upon the police
cordon and tried to force their way into
the hall. The police were badly
handled by the crowd. The commanding
inspector was knocked
dojvn a ml trampled upon, and his
mon in trying to rescue hi in wielded
their sabres right and left with great
fierceness. The scene for a time was a
four;ui one. Both side* fought savagely,
and the result was many bloody
heads among the mob lrom the sabres
of the police, while all the police were
bruised and beaten and their uniforms
torn. The fight caused a panic among
the people in the vicinity, and houses
and shops wero cloned and bolted.
The mob were liuatly disoersed, but
later gathered in groups in difleront
parts of the city and listened to violont
speeches by leaders of the Socialists
party, some of whom urged the pconle
to rise and overthrow astato which cut
tiiom down for the sake of the Liberals.
At 0 o'clock the greatest excitement
continued, and the police in strong
force were engaged in breaking up the
different gatherings. The number
wounded during the evening was large,
although the exact figure cannot be
learned brcause many of the injured
were carried oil by their comrades. - "
