A MAMMOTH PETITION PRESENTED The Senate Not Ready to C'onaider the Fed eral Electloni Bill, and It Went Over. Boutelle*a Hawaiian Resolution Report, ed Favorably. • Washington, Jan. 10.—It was a field day In the house for the tariff. The galleries were thronged all day, and the floor was crowded. Rach side put forth its most brilliant orators for the day session. Mr. Wilson, the chairman of the ways and means committee, completed the speech which he began Monday, and Mr. Burrows opened the debate fortne Republicans with a three hour reply. During the course of Mr. Burrows' speech he displayed a petition which ho said was 50 yards long, protesting against the pas sage of the Wilson bill and the placing of wool on the free list. He said he also had letters from 4Ô states protesting against it. Mr. Burrows spoke for almost three hours. At the conclusion of his speech there was a great outburst of Republican applause, so long continued us to call forth a rebuke from the chair. The Republicans gener ally went to Mr. Burrows' scat to congrat ulate him, and he was presented with a bouquet of 57 roses, this being bis fifty seventh birthday. After order had been restored General J. C. Black of Illinois, ex-commissioner of pensions, took the floor, and Mr. Hopkins of Illinois followed. The good points of all the speakers were liber ally applauded by their respective parti sans. At the evening session Mr. Haines, a Democrat from Troy, X. Y., in the name of the collar and cuff industry, fired the first shot into the Wilson bill. He dis played a gigantic petition protesting against the collar and cuff schedule and declaring that if it were to become a law it would ruin this great industry. He thep presented to the committee the mammoth petition, the like of which has never been seen in the house. It was a gi gantic volume 2 feet thick, 6 feet long and 4 feet wide, bound in red, white and blue, addressed on the cover, "To the Congress of the United States," the title being,"The Petition of the Citizens and Collar and Cuff Operators of Xew Y'ork." It was car ried into the ball of representatives by four men. It was signed by 69.819 people, 50,706 from Troy and vicinity and .he rest from Albany. Indorsed Boatelle's Resolution. A surprise was furnished in the Hawaii an matter by the action of the house com mittee on naval affairs, winch voted unani mously to favorably report the Boutelle resolution to the house. This resolution is an ironclad one, calling upon the secretary of the navy to inform the house by what authority instructions were issued placing the naval forces under the orders of Minister Blount, and to fur nish copies of all orders or suggestions is sued by himself or any officer of the navy since March 4,1898, concerning the use of naval forces at the Hawaiian Islands. An amendment was made changing the date to March 4, 1892, so that the operations of the navy in Hawaii under the Harrison administration would be included. The secretary of the navy is directed to furnish the information and is given no option to withhold documents which be might consider secret or the publicity of which at this time might be regarded as contrary to public policy. Chairman Cummings of the naval com mittee will report the Boutelle resolution to the house immediately, but says that it cannot be considered until the debate on the Wilson bill has been finished. Mr. Boutelle, on the other band, thinks that the resolution can be called up at once and be debated for 15 minutes by each side, as provided for in the rules. Elections Rill Goes Over. The session of the senate did not develop the interest that was anticipated. The con sideration of the federal elections bill was not begun according to the programme of Senator Gray, as no one seemed prepared to speak, and after some colloquy between Senators Chandler. Gray mid Gorman over the method of procedure the measure final ly went over until next Monday. At that lime, however, it comes up as unfinished business, and Senator Gray gave notice that be would press its consideration "rea sonably and continuously" until a vote be reached. The Hawaiian situation failed to elicit the detmte that was promised. Senator Chandler's resolution calling for an opin ion us to the constitutionality and regulari ty of the appointment of Commissioner Blount by President Cleveland was called up and pressed for passage, hut after Sena tor Sherman hud expressed his opinion that its passage would bo disrespectful to the foreign relations committee, which is already considering the subject. Senator Chandler, finding his own party not a unit In support of bis proposition, prompt iy withdrew it.__ Offered Money to Dine.

I regret that it will he impos sible (or me to accept the generous offer." Mr. Wilson at first was disposed to re gard the proposition as a joke, but when informed that it was made seriously be smiled and said, "I am afraid you will have to excuse me."

The Democrats Organised Flrvt and Re fused to Recognize the New Republican Members—Republicans Retired to a Lob by Room and Elected Their Officers, Trenton, Jan. 10.—There arc today two senates in this state. One Is the Demo cratic senate, which is recognized by Gov ernor Werts. The other is that of Re publican senators, which is recognized by the house. That is the situation. The Democrats have the keys to the senate chamber, and the Republicans must meet where they can. Early in the afternoon a detachment of police was ordered to the statebouse in command of Captain Cleary of the Trenton department. The captain went at once to the governor's private room and received instructions from him. Already the cor ridors were so thronged that all passages to the senate chamber were completely blocked. The police then marched up the corridor, pustiing the crowd back, and formed a passageway to the doors of the chamber. In the senate chamber the Democratic holdover members were seated, wailing for S o'clock, the time for meeting, to arrive. The doors were locked. Sergeant-at-arms Xathan of the last session was guarding them within. Xo one but a few state offi cers and favored persons were admitted, newspaper men excepted. At five mlnutee to 3 Samuel Thomp son, the clerk of the senate, called the sen ate u> order, and on resolution of Senator Daly, Robert Adrian of Middlesex was elected temporary chairman. The roll was called, and Senators Wlnton, Miller, Mo Mickel, Perkins, Hinchliff, Drake, Martin, Daly and Adrian answered to their names. A Fight at the Doors. The officers were in their seats when the Republican senators rupiied at the dour for admission. The crowd outside was in great commotion, and the senators had an ex ceedingly difficult time to get to the doors of the chamber. The sergeaut-nt-arms de manded the naines of those who rapped. The doors were opened a little, and the first senator to enter was Bradley of Mon mouth. He was closely followed by Sena tor Skirin of Mercer and Senator Packer of Gloucester. When Senator Ketcham entered, County Clerk Gummerc of Mercer attempted to enter with him. The sergeant-at-arms and his attendants made a desperate effort to keep him out, anil Senator Ketcham struck two or three of them over the head with a cane, at the same time exclaiming ."Y'ou don't own this senate!" Finally all the senators were admitted and took their seats. Chairman Adrian instructed the secre tary to call the roll, wheu Senator Stokes arose to a quest ion of privilege. He anid they had come here to organize the senate in the usual way. They were surprised to find the senate already organized. He wanted assurance that all the senatora elcct would be sworn in. He wanted to know whether Senator Bradley would he sworn in or not. Chairman Adrian replied that the hour of 8 o'clock having qrrived, they had or ganized in the regular way and bad theu taken a recess to await the possible arrival of the senators. Senator Daly then offered a resolution that the credentials of the new senators ho referred to a committee of three, to he appointed by the chairman. Senator Stokes protested against this and said it was about time for them to assert their constitutional rights. He said the people of the state bad elected a majority of Republican senators and should have the fruits of their victory. He said he un derstood that Senator Bradley had been sworn in. Bradley replied that ho had. Chairman Adrian called him to order. Senator Skirin then presented the cre dentials of the new senstors and vows of office, hut Adrian refused to accept them. At this point Senator Voorhecs of Union took the floor, but Chairman Adrian re fused to recognize him, and he then de manded bis rights as a senator from Union county. Chairman Adrian directed the sergeant-nt-arms to compel the gentleman to take his seat, but Senator Voorhecs de fied him, replying that he did not recog nize him as his scrgemit-nt-arras. Vonrltees Defied the < heir. 'T demand my rights, Mr. Chairman, and I propose to have thorn!" exclaimed Mr. Voorhecs. "I am herewith my cre dentials and oath of office, and 1 must be recognized." Wheu still refused, he advised that the Republican senators withdraw, and they all repaired to a lobby room. Chairman Adrian directed the sergeaut-at arms to clear the lobbies and floor, but the lobbies were not disturbed. The Republicans proceeded to organize by electing the dill cere selected in the morning. They then sent a message to the house and were recognized by that body. The committees made their ingress and egress through the windows. A commit tee was also sent to the governor, who stat ed that be had already received s message from a body who called themselves a sen ate, and he would h\ve to consult his legal adviser before doiug more. The Democrats continued in session in the senate chamber, und after completing the organization the credentials of the sen ators wore called for. Protests from citi zens of Camden, Hnlem and Monmouth -•ounties were presented against the seat ing of Senators Rogers, Word and Bradley on the ground of fraud, corruption and bribery. Senator Winton offered bills re pealing the race track laws. The Demo cratic senate adjourned until this morning after adopting a resolution that no one should be admitted to the chamber except state officers and senators. The Republic an senate adjourned until evening. The house organized without anything of mo ment taking place. The Republican senate held a short night tession in the assembly chamber. They re quested the assistant janitor of the state house (or permission to enter the senate chamber, but were told that the sergeant at-arms of the Democratic senate had taken the keys home with him. A big crowd iu the corridors offered to break open the doors, snd the senators bad to appeal to them not to do so. Senator Ketcham offered a resolution that the ser geant-al-arms of the Republican senate ask for the keys before the next session. The senate theu adjourned till this after noon at 2 o'clock.
