was examning the lgures on the re

Following is the~ more detailed ac
count of the proceedings in the IHouse:
Tlfere was a large attendance both on
the floor and the galleries. Toe open
ing prayer was made by the prospeoct.
lve Chap lain, Rev. E. B. Bagby of the
city of Washington, and the A rat act
of the House after the reading of the
journal was the adoption of a resolu

immediately took the oath of 0111
The New York bridge bill wit the
Senate amendment as paused in the i
Senate yesterday was laid before the
House. The amendments were non
concurred in, and a conference was
The silver purchase repeal bill with
the Senate amendment was laid before
the House and the Senate substitute
was iead.
Wilson, who had charge of"the bill,
moved to concur in the Senate amend
ment and on that motion he moved the
previous question. Ile assured the
friends of silver that he had no desire
to press for a vote immediately after
the lapse of the half hour which would
be allowed for debate on the seconding
of the previous question. If the pre
vious question could be considered as
seconded, h9 was perfectly willing that
the half hour might be extended to
such reasonable time today as might
be desired for debate-say to 3 or 3.30
Bland, who leads the opposstion, said
that he had no disposition to delay the
flnal vote on the bill. Ile hoped, how
ever, that its friends would permit it
to come up in regular order and to be
debated in a regular way. The gentle
man in charge of the bill and a major
ity with him and could under the rules
of the House move the previous ques
tion at any time. He did not see the
necessity of his demanding the previ
ous question on this occasich. It seem
ed to him that the gentleman from
Wesc Virginia should let the debate go
on and when he thought, or when the
House thought, that the debate bad
gone far enough, he could move the
trevious question.
Wilson said that the parliamentary
difliculty in the way was tnat if he did
not move the previous question he
would lose control of the bill and the
deuate would go on with opportunities
for the offering of all ,orts of amend
ments. Livingston of Georgia suggest
ed that the previous questions be con
sidered ordered, that fIve minute
speeches be allowed to members to ex
plain their votes up to 4 o'clock this af
ternoon. Ie did not desire that Wil
son should lose control of the [till.
Stockdale (Dem.) of Mississippi com
plained that the members were in the
hands of the member from West Vir
ginia and had to get his permision even
to make an tuquiry.
Wilson said that he had no objection
to an inquiry.
Stockdale asked whether there were
no rights for members of the House
except for those who controlled the
bill? Had members to ask any man
for the precious privilege of exercising
their rights as American representa
Livingston assured Wilson that the
friends of silver did not intend to ob
struct the passage of the bill. They
were just as anxious to get it out of
the way and to go home as the others
were. They wanted the Democratic
party to be harmonized again if possi
ble. [Laughter.] But at the same time
the silver men wanted an opportunity
to give their votes, and that could be
done before 4 o'clock.
Wilson said he had practically made
that proposition.
Livingston: As the chairman of the
Committee on Coinage, Weights and
Measures (Bland) does not accept that
proposition, I. will accept it. [Laugh
Bryan of Nebraska asked Wilson
whether the object of the previous
question was to prevent the House
from having the chance to vote on
amendments that might be offered.
Wilson: That is one reason, yes.
Bryan. I want the record , o show
that those who are in charge of bill
are-not willing to have am :.dients
voted on.
Wilson: The House hais alre;ady vot
ed on all amend ments th at were offered
on that side,
Livingston: I understood the gentle
man from West Virginia to agree that
amendments might be offered.
A chorus of members: Oh, no, noth
ing of the sort,
Wilson: I made no agreement about
ihat. I do not understand whether the
gentleman from Missouri, sneaking
for his side of the question, has accept
ed my proposition or not.
Bland: I accept no proposition except
the bill shall come up in tne regular
The Speaker: Object,ion is made and
now the question is on seconding tihe
previous question. [Ories of "vote,
As the Speaker put the question on
Wilson's motilon, Bi-yan began a series
of obstructive motions, the mrst being
one to adjourn. That was voted down
26 to 180. Then came a motion for a
recess till 3 p. in., which was killed, 21
to 191. Then in rapid succession (yeas
and nays being refused, and tellers be
mng also refused) came mot ions to ad
Jouarn till Frilday and till Saturday, and
motions to take a recess till various
nlours nam"d. '1These obstructive mo
tions~ were treated good humoredly by
the llouse, and the Speaker countedi
I he votes oni each occasion and an
noum.cer them wimt h as much serious
niess and regularity as if t.h3 imotons
were imnportant one..
After some dozeu of them had b)een
maide, anud dlisposed of, Wells of Wis
~ons5ini causdd genleral laughlter by in
quiring wether the Committee on
lllshdnot some ready made rule
that would operate in tis case. Soon
afterwards a motion was made by
Henderson that the Ilouse take a recess
of aive minutes in order that the Com
mittee on Rules mnighlt bring on a cdo
ture rule, but the Speaker said t hat he
declined to put the motion. IhInider
son's motion was repeatedi within five
minutes by Morse of Massacuusetts,
arnd Reed remarked that the Comn mittee
on Rules had the right to act,
"The Chair did not consider the mo
tion of the gentleman of Massachusetts
as serious,' said the Speaker.
"I su pposed he was,' said Reed, and
there was a laugh,
Finally in the confusion of obstruc
tive motions, the Speaker suddenly put
the question and declared (amid much
hanaclapping ann exultation) that the
previous question was ordered.
Wilson then took the floor and yield
ed ten minutes to Bland. Bland sent
to the Cierk's desk and had read an
amendment which he had intended to
offer, reviving and re-enacting the law
of l17 for the unlimited coinage of
silver, and wound up) his brief speech
of protest by saying that the whole
thing was a stock jobbing operation.
Bland yielded three minutes of his
time to dryan and two minutes tod
Wheeler of Alabama. Both of these
gentlemen spoke against the bill.
Three minutes were given by Wilsnn
;o Springer to state his views in sup
>ort of it.
Livingston having had two minutes
tranted to him, declared his reasons for
roting against the bill. One of them
was that its passage would enhance the
ralue of money and depress the price
>f products. Another was that it left
I.e financial system of the country to
)e determined by international agree
nent and to that he was unyieldingly
After brief sDeeches by Reed and
[racy of New York, both of whom fa
ror the bill, Wilson closed the discus
ion. The argument, he said, hat end
,d; and judgment had been recorded
with an emphasis which could not be
iiisunderstood. Nothing which could
)e said now could either strengthen or
weaken the position of the measure.
lie had recognized from the beginning
)f the contest that there had been an
ionest difference of opinion on the
nleasure-that those who had opposed
.t and those who favored it were lion
)st, sincere and patriotic. Which side
was right, the future alone would in
licate. If the passage of the bill
;hould bring about a small part of
those blessings to the country which
is friends proposed; if it would re
store confidence and enterprise, and
bring prosperity to the people, then the
judgment of its friends would be jus.
iled and its opponents would stand
before history as men of honest, pa.
'riotic, but mistaken judgment.
If, on the other hand, it should bring
jut one-tenth part of the evils which
Its vnemies prophesied, then the judg
ment of its opponents would be just.,
ind its friends Would stand before his
'ory as honest, patriotic, but mistaken
men. [Applause.]
Bland moved to recommit the bill
with in4tructions to report back the
imend nent which he bad indicRted
reviving the free coinage Act of 1837).
The question was then taken on con
murring in the Senate substitute and it
was concurred in. The result was an
iounced acid heard without any de
nonstration. After a few moments
levoted to unimportant business, the
[louse, at 4:15, adjurned until to-mior
ow at noon.
A Good Showing.
COLU31A, S. C., Nov. 1.--Yesterday
marking the close of the fiscal of 1892
M8 the Secretary of State compiled his
trnuat report of the charters issued
luring the year and a remarkably good
'howing, considering the hard timai is
made as compared to the preceding
year. Less charters were issued than
Juring the year before, but the aggre
gate capital invested in them exceeds
the preceding year by over two mi
lions of dollars. Last year 124 com
missions were issued with a total of 79
charters. This year 122 com'nisions
went out with a total of 72 charters.
The aggregate capital invested in the
79 companies inaugurated last year. in
cluding of course, the increase in capi
tal stock of several concerns previous
ly chartered, was $4,969,750 as against
17,413,000 for this year. This is a good
showing, but it is impossible, of course
to tell from these figures whether the
various concerns have been making or
Losing money on the capital invested.
[t shows however that the people of
:,he State have not been afraid to in vest
,heir money in new enterprises and
,hat South Carolina is still keeping up
n the onward march of progress. The
Attorney General has nearly completed
lis annual report. It will be one of
the most interesting to be issued this
wear. The report of 'the Attorney
[eneral on the Port Royal and Augus
ta railroad case resulting in the unbot
tling of Port Royal, will occupy a gooI
leal of space. In this report, too, will
be found a sketch of all the cases in
which the legal department of the
State administration has been con
cerned. More cases have been handled
by the present incumbent in oflice than
by any predecessors and the summary
will be interesting. The report will
show a very heavy bill for thte print
ing of briels, etc.,lin all those cases.
There has hbeen so much of this that
the appropriation has been insuflicient
to meet the bills5. Adjutant General
Farley and Superintendent oi 10duca
tion Mayfield are both hard at work
finishing up their reports and expect
to have them through in time.-State.

In volume 2, Drayton's Memoirs,
page 372, appears the following account
which I quote:
"So soon as the government unde:
the constitution of March, 1776, wai
organized, the necessity of having I
public seal became evident and on mo
ton in the General Assembly it wai
resolved "That His Excellency th4
President and commander in chief, b.

signing the great seal and causing ii
to be made; and in the meantime i

The Notaries Public.
COLUMBIA, S. C., Nov. 2.-Elsewher
in The Register this morning is put
lished a proclamation by Governo
Tillman with reference to the Notarte
Public of the State in which the con
missions issued prior to 1889 are re
voked. In a general way the proch
mation is self-explanatory. In speak
Ing of the subject more particularl
Governor Tillman said that the com
miesions of the Notaries P ublic havinj
, no limitations as to time there was ii
way of telling who they are or hoi
many of them are in the State, some o
the commission now in force datinj
back forty and fifty years. Some o
r the Notaries have abused their privi
leges and are unfit to hold their com
missions many of them being appoint
ed in Radical times, It is an eas
matter in many instances for Notarie
Public to be guilty of fraud in colit
sion with some one else, and the Gov
ernor says there should be characl e
behind these commissions as beliim
everything else. The Governor's ac
tion in this matter is unusual if' no
unprecedented, but as the Notarie
Public only hold ofice "during the
pleasure of the Governor" he has thi
right to do it in the exercise of his dis
cretion and lie thinks he has sutticien
reasons for his action in the premises
The Governor will ask the Lezish
ture to pass an Act limiting the term

near Fort t-arerizas. The tribesmen,
1thoiih tuder a heavy artillery tire
5 from the SpWinii forts, did not retire af
5 ter abandonini the pursuit of the Spin
0 i8h troops. 1,entually they occupied
3 the trene les which bad been du4 near
3 Fort Cabreriz is to protect the Spanish
0 soldiers at their work. To dislodge
5 them Gen. Margallo led out 2,000 Infan
- try from the fort. The 1tiflins in the
7 trenches hell them in check until rein
3 forcements, G,001 stroncy, were brought
up from the main body, about a mile
back in the hills. The tribesmen' then
had some 11,000 warriors. They
; stretched out their line, apparently for
the purpose of securing Margallo, and
at one time the fishting extended along
a three mile frout. Margallo tried to
) break the centre of their line, and
r charged with half his men, but was re
pulsed, with heavy losses.
Just as the order for retreat was given.
Gen. MAirgallo fell tven his horse, shot
through tue heart. iiis body was car
lied by his men from the field, and lies
now in the citadel at Melilia.
Under alhot fire from the li.ms, the
Spaniards retired to Fot Cabrerizas.
The Riflians were checked in their pur
suit by the guns of the tort. They an
swered I he fire intermittently throughout
last, night from the eart,hworks formerly
occupied by the Spaniards, At mid
niiht, Gen. Ortega, upon whom the
command developed after Margallo's
death, went to Fort Cabrerizas, with
1,500 infantry. This morning he led
out 3,000 men and drove the Itifl.Ans
from the trenches which the hpaniards
were occupying when the last dispatches
were received.
The coi nandcr o tile Spanish cuiser
Conde de Venadito has telegr
report, in which lie said: "The Arabs
approacled so near at times that their
bullets reached our deck." The city
of Madrid has been intensely excited by
the news of the battle. The oi:'zal dis
I a!ches which have been made pubic
aro so meagre that the people believe
the worst hits not been told. There
is little doubt anywhere tha, thle losses
of the Spandards have been understated.
The ministers were summonded In haste
to a c:tbinet neetinI immediately after
the news o the disaster was received.
Orders lave been issued for three regi
ments of cavalry and four battalinns of
infantry to eibark at once for Melilla.
L,aIte this evening more details of the
battle were made pulic. The Riffians
despite the heavy artillery fire, came
within twenty yards of Fort Cabrerizas.
They maintained a constant fusilade,
and foughlt throughout the ba.tle with
auditeous bravery. The guns of the
Condo do Vonadito alone prevented a

aInd kept the tribesmen from attacking
Mellla. when, tile Ritillans captured
the redouht btilding near the fort they
foundit two can ions. These they turned
iat on1ce against the fort, answering rap
iolv the Spanish fire.
Trho tribesmen remained in 'the village
of Maxqouta after the tight. They kept
up ia desultory fire upon the forts and
the Conde de Venadit.o throughout the
uiLht. The cruiser Alfonso the Twelft,h
withl twelve guns, will proceed to Me
hilla at once. When Gen. Margrllo was,
