The doors were finally reopened and the Silver Repeal bill taken up. Mr. McPherson, (Dem. N. J.,) agreed In support of the bill declaring his belief which was shared by two thirds of the (people of the country, that the Shor eman Silver law was the main cause of the business troubles. Silver Men Again Talk "Compromise." It is re asserted by the sliver men to day with much more show of confidence, that a compromise on the Stiver bill is within sight. It has been ascertained, they say, that in case unconditional I'repeal is found impossible, reasonable assurances have been given that the President will give his approval to a measure of the kind indicated The alleged compromise is on the basis of the Blackburn amendment which avoids the necessity of issuing bonds,but maintains parity by selling the seignor age for gold and depositing the gold in the treasury as a redemption fund. Well-informed Senators believe the [question will be settled in forty-eight lionrs after the continuous session be gins to-morrow. When spoken to about (the compromise measure above refered to, a repeal Senator said It was one of :the absurd stories started by the silver m«n. the "There will be no compromise," he said, "aud the President would be the last man to give any assurance that he would give in when victory is in sight.

Nashville, Oct. 10.—Two months ago 400 miners employed by operators at Coal Creek and Briceviile, in Anderson county, refused to accept a reduction of 10 per cent, in wages The operators Insisted, Lind the miners remained idle. They con tinued to occupy houses belonging to the companies, and as they were out of em ployment they could not pay rent. The companies notified them a few days ago that they must nay, resume work, or va cate tbe houses. Some of tbe meu went to work at once, and the remainder re sumed their usual) employment to-day, thus ending the strike.

Ballinger, Tex, Oct. 10.—Three miles east of Robert Lee, in Coke county, the Ballinger and Robert Lee stage was rob bed by two highwaymen, disguised by wearing long whiskers and having masks on their faces. At a point in the road where there are ravines and thick underbush they met the stage and (ordered the driver to halt and throw up his hands, at the same time forcing him to look down the barrel of a huge ugly six-shooter. They took $1.05 from the driver and rifled the(mail sacks securing $3,100. After securing theirlbooty they ordered the driver to turn his face to the ris ing sun and drive fast and ; "remember the command given by the angel of God to Lot's wife."

Had the Pleasure of Listening to an In tensely Patriotic Speech By Mr. Mc Intyre—Old Grandmother of the Willful, Wayward Emma in Court. New Yoke, Oct. 10.—The little Anarchist, Emma Goldman, was found guilty yesterday by the jury in Judge Martine's conrt. Before she had that misfortune she experienced the good fortune of listening to a robustly patrio tic speech by Mr. McIntyre, the prosecu tor, and heard Judge Martine deliver some sound advice, over the shoulders of the jury, wherein the judge, as a man of experience, gave Emma to understand that the American people, while they occasionally scolded a bit about the laws, were, after all, the most law-abiding, law-defending people in the world, and regarded with deep disesttem any one who advised lawless ness. Emma appeared in court in the same black cloth drees she has worn all through her trial, but there was a change in the only bit of color she has worn, the little rim of ruching which peeps above the collar of her dress. It has been pink. Yesterday is was blue. In the little railed-off space where women visitors to Judge Martine's court are seated, an old, gray-haired woman eat all day yesterday, not listening to the lawyer's speech nor to the judge's charge, for they were in English, and she could not understand, bnt with her tearful eyes fixed on her granddaughter, the wayward, wilfnl Emma. Each time the defendant left the conrt room, the old woman stopped the young woman, who gave her a word of explana tion of the I proceedings. After ^the jury had rendered its verdict and the formality of that proceeding was over, Emma, with her keeper, again started for the Tombs. The old woman knew that a verdict bad been rendered, bnt did not know what it was. She could not wait for berjgranddaugbter to reach her, but left the little enclosure and walked to meet Emma. "What Is it?" she whispered in Ger man, putting her hands on Emma's shoulders, while the big keeper waited. "Guilty," answered the young woman. The older one staggered, caught her self, kissed the youuger woman on the mouth, aud without a word they parted, one to the Tombs, the other to cling to a chair until enough strength returned to carry her out of tbo court room, alone. In his closing speech Mr. .uclatyre, answering Mr. Hall's plea for the sym pathy of the jury for the defendant be cause ehe is a woman, said that a woman does not put herself in a position to de maud sympathy when she urges a crowd of ignorant foreigners to destroy all gov ernment aud endeavors to Induce them to pillage and burn in rage against the government whose protection and ad vantages they have sought. Neither ie a woman in a position to ask for sympa thy when she admits having been the companion of Most, the ex convict; of Timmerman, the convict; of Bergman, the assassin. "If by your verdict you declare her innocent of crime," said Mr. McIntyre, "to-night Most will call his comrades about him to rejoice because twelve American citizens have given license to anarchy. 'We are the victors 1' Most may truthfully eay." may "When the time comes," said the judge, "that this community cannot, within the forms of the law, maintain peace and order, chaos has come ; that chaos whichjseems to be earnestly longed for—by some " The jury retired at 3 o'clock, and gave its verdict at 5. The jurymen came In once to have some of the evidence read to them. The stenographer read it. An Irishman on the jury asked if the sten ographer could not read it in German, "for," he added, "there are some Ger mans on this jury." When the defendant beard the verdict she colored quickly. The judge assured the jury that in his opinion their verdict could not have been otherwise, in view of the evidence. The prisoner was then remanded until Monday. She shook bands with her counsel and chatted with them laugh ingly for a few minutes. She said she was not surprised at the verdict ; that she had been convicted because she an Anarchist and an atheist, not because she had committed any offense at the Union wts FIRE RAGED AT NANTASKET. family In One Burning BnlMlug Had Ultlicnlty In Kacaping.

Hut Say* There 1* Yet a Chance of Valkyrie Carrying Over the America's Cup—Valkyrie Hetter Suited to English Winds and Would Heat theVIgllant Over There. New York, Oct. 10.—The result of yesterday's contest is looked upon by all yachtsmen as conclusively proving the superiority of the American boat and no one could be founa to day who would bet that Valkyrie would win to morrow's race. There is some talk of wagers at 8 to 1 that Valkyrie will not carry the Ameri ca's cup back to England, but the friends of Dunraveu's boat are so few now that money at this great odds cannot be placed. Lord Dunraven was cheerful and hope ful to-day while frankly admitting that bis boat was fairly beaten yesterday. He was not, he said, quite ready to admit that the Vigilant is the better boat until the conditions are favorable to Valkyrie. "The crowding by the excursion boats yesterday," he said, "caused his boat to lose several minutes. 1 realize that I have little chance now that I will take the cup back to England, but still there is a chance." He said, "I regard the Valkyrie as the fastest boat in stiff or very light breezes. Valkyrie is better suited to English winds and water while the American boats are faster in the winds and water over here. Valkyrie would undoubtedly beat Vigilant on the other side. " The earl said he certainly would not, if he lost, build another yacht and issue another challenge for a race under con ditions that admitted of the crowding of the yachts by excursion boats. New York, Oct. 10.—The Vigilant beat the Valkyrie yesterday in actual time by 12 minutes aud 23 seconds. With her allowance of 1 minute and 48 seconds the Valkyrie was beaten by 10 minutes and 35 seconds. This id tbe official table of the race Elapsed CorVted Finish. Time. Tin*-. H.M.8. II. M.8.

VIGILANT'S BOWSPRIT SPRUNG. An Accident That May Cause a Postpone ment of the Third Race. After the Vigilant bad returned to Bay Ridge last night it was learned that she sprung her bowsprit on the way home. The report was confirmed by Latham A. Fish, of the Cup Committee. Neither C. Oliver Iselen nor any of the other gentle men on board the American sloop cared to speak of the matter, and the extent of the injury could not be ascer tained. A telegran was sent to Pepgrass at City Island last night telling him to forward a new bowsprit to Bay Ridge to-day. It is not thought that the accident will cause any delay, so far as getting a new bowspritjis concerned, as the Vigilant had duplicates made for all of her spars early this season. It may be, however, there will be delay in fixing the iron work. This part of tbe job may take two or three days would be postponed till Thursday or Friday. S Nicholson Kane said at the New York Yacht Club last night that he did not know whether the bowsprit was broken or strained. He said that it would not be known till to-day whether tbe third race would have to be post poned or not, Iu that case the third race of be of BEATEN FAIRL Y AN D SQUARELY. Designer Watson Thinks That the Vigilant Is a Remarkable Boat. George L. Watson, the designer of the Va.kyrie, came ashore from tbe English cutter almost as soin as she dropped anchor at Bay Ridge. Soon afterward he went down to Sawyer'j sail loft in com pany with Sailmaker Ratsey to see about some of the Valkyrie's spare canvas. When later asked what he thought of the race he replied: "Well, they beat us; that's the first and last of it." "Did you have any trouble with your sails or meet with any accident?" "Oh, no, none whatever. The Vlgll lant outsailed us on every point, and that is all there is to it. I think she is a very remarkable boat." "Would the Valkyrie do better iu a heavy, choppy sea?" "Oh, I don't know. You see," he added, "tbe Vigilant has outsailed us in every course and iu ever; kind of wind, and that's all that can be said. " "Why did you make that short tack just before coming to the first mark on ihe beat to windward?" "To get away from the wash of the excursion steamers, which were far too close. " "Were you bothered as much tc- day by the excursion boats as you were on Saturday ?" "No; thay behaved pretty well to day. There was one big fellow with two fun nels which ran very near several times It would not have affected the result any—a few seconds at, the most Very bad taste, though, In them, don't you think ?" he added. "Then, again, at the finish, seve ai steamers which were on the leeward side of the course crossed over to the windward end of the line after the Vigilant had finished aud churned up a great old wash, saury tug boats of yours bothered us greatly at the start, and we came near running into one or two of them." "In case the Valkyrie Is beaten again on Wednesday will Lord Dunraven build another boat and challenge again ?" "If be has made any plans for a future cup challenge I don't know of them." When asked how Lord Dunraven took his defeat he replied : "Oh, Lord Dunraven is a true sports man, and did not complain, as he felt satisfied he was beaten squirely." Those Is This the Clau-ua-Oael'.' New Tork Sun. To the Editor ok The Sun—S ir; I can prove that on Friday night several spiteful and„* unscrupulous 8» Irishmen went down to Ray Ridge with a lot of crabs and barnacles and dumped them around the Valkyrie. Owing to the barnacles and crabs adhering to the boat, her progress was retarded and she lost the race. Yours trnlv, D. E. D., Pleasant avenue. New York, Oct. 0, 1893. COULDN'T STAND NEWSBOYS' JEERS. A Girl Bicyclist Id Bloomers Forced to Flee From 1'nrk How In ltlu*lilng Con fusion. A great crowd surged in front of the Sun office yesterday afternoon anxiously watching the bulletin board for news of the yacht race, while scores of newsboys skirted the edge of the throng shouting at the top of their voices and making the day hideous with their bellowing. The mass of humanity, intent upon learning the result of the great contest, stretched far out into the street and impeded the progress of the horse cars. The police men could not clear the way, and the car drivers almost shouted aud cursed theui selves hoarse iu their attempts to get down to the post office, or back again to Park row aud the bridge. The boys who wore waiting for the extras to appear found a pastime iu worrying the drivers and conductors, and one of their methods was to throw pebbles at tbe men on the platforms. Boon there appeared another element of disturbance It came slowly the City Hall Park and did not attract much attention at first. As one of the urchins explained, tbe crowd did not "drop to it" (or some time, bnt when they did there was pandemonium. The innocent cause of the riot was a plain looking yonng woman in knickerbockers. She was a bicyclist, and she bad adopted male attire. But she bad not counted on passing through a nest of street arabs. She wore dark bine baggy trousers that were fastened just below the knee, and her shapely legs were encased in black stockings drawn up so tightly that every muscle of the well-trained calf stood out iu relief. Her low shoes were a trifle dusty, as the probable result of a long ride. The young woman wore a shirt waist that was tucked into her trousers in a most masculine fashion, and a short blue coat that could be but toned iu front. A jaunty hat perched on her head, aud her hair was gathered iu a tight knot at tbe hack. As she came across the park she wheeled her machine over the asphalt walks, and behind her there slowly gath ered a crowd Some boys who were sell ing papers In front of the City Hall espied the curious ontfit aud gave a peculiar yell that seemed tobe a warning cry to every other boy in the neighbor hood. Tbe bulletins and the horse cars held no more attractions for them. They swarmed over to the park and sur rounded the girl in knickerbockers. They yelled and laughed, and each one volunteered some suggestion or asked her for information. "Ain't you forgot suthin," said one. "Git onto them shanks I" howled another. "Aw, ain't she bold!" screamed a third, and then the poor girl listened to such remarks as these : "Do you s'pose she wears suspen ders?" "Papa's pants are baggy at the knees!" "Oh, Msudy, does yonr mrimmor know you've got 'em on?" "Git on de machine and let's see 'em work! The intellectual pressure of the con versation became so heavy at this point that the fair rider turned about, and, vaulting gracefu'ly onto her bicycle, rode rapidly towanl Broadway and dis appeared among the cable cars and trucks. At about this time a Ishout went up from the crowd In front of the Sun office as the word "Vigilant" was painted on the bulletin board, aud the newsboys gave up their pursuit of the girl for the more profitable employ .meut of selling extras.—New York Sun. ac ross F0ÜRTEEH BUILDINGS BURNED.

Tbe assailant is known as "the waterproof man," as he goes about disguised with a long overcoat, or waterproof. Suspicion rested upon two men, one of whom was a student in tbe aozdemy aud another a workman in a shoe factory.
