MlDDLaTOWN. April 5.— There has
never been, in the history of this town,
a hotter tight for the postrosstersblp than
that which is now being waged by W. U.
Johnson, William K Reynolds, William

Moore and Cochran, although Reynolds's
friends think that he has an excellent

Moore end Johnson came out early and,
by so doing, secured a strong endorse

the other aspirants say that the appoint

effect nptm the politics of the hundred,
as neither Moore nor Johnson have been

but the bishop refused to grant their

Mr. Price, amt made a selection to suit
themselves. Their choice fell upon Rev
Wright.
The Dover Index shows the following
side of the story : Rev. B F. Price, who

p,.rsonage nod tuat arrangements had

Mr. Price spent the Sabbath in Dover

people were very mark pleased with
Mr. Price'» sermon and quite a uum

dent's veto were suddenly smashed, and
the vote was had upon the motion amid m
scene of such inextricable confusion as has
seldom been witnessed on the floor of ttie
house of representatives. The strong hand
of the speaker carried the bill to a vote
without a single word of debate upon it.
The Republicans had expected to hear the
welkin ring with the discordant cries of
the Democrats and had arranged to force
enough debate to give all those on the
other side who were antagonistic to the
administration an opportunity to voice
their discontent.
Hut by one of those parliamentary blun
ders which occasionally occur they missed
their opportunity, ami intrenched behind
the wall of a parliamentary technicality
the speaker braved their thunders and re
fused absolutely to listen to their protesta
thins that it was all n mistake. The bill
came up after the bouse had unseated lit)

bad seated English', tbe contestant, in his
place.
Republican* Were Off Guard.
There was ut the time great confusion
on the floor. Members on both sides were
conferring in groups. The speaker with
uplifted gavel surveyed the house for a
moment. Mr. Hlaud expressed a willing
net« to have the vote taken Immediately.
Mr. Heed, Mr. Harrows, Mr. Dingiey and
Mr. Stone were in earnest consultation to
the left of the speaker's rostrum. As it
subsequently appeared, they agreed that
Mr, Dingiey should make the o|ieiiing ar
gument for his side.
Meantime no one addressed the chair,
and the speaker stated the question to Ik
on the motion to pass the bill, the presi
dent's objection to the contrary notwltit
»landing.
"On this," he said, looking down npon
t he confusion ou t lie floor, "the const il u
tlou requires that the vote shall be taken
by yeas and nays."
He hesitated. Still every one on the
floor, engrossed with the programme in
the coming debate, heeded him not.
"All those in favor will answer aye," he
continued; "contrary, contrary sign."
Again he paused; but. no one addressing
him, he added, with a Lang of tbe gavel,
"The clerk will call tbe roll."
y
"Mr. Allen," began the clerk.
There was a gasp of astonishment on the
Republican side as t hey awakened to real
ize that the roll call had begun. The Dem
orrata who were anxious to set* debate sup
pressed were overjoyed. Amid a great ujr
roar a dozen Republicans jumped to tiieii
feet and clamored for recognition. They
saw tho coveted opportunity of exposing
to the public gaze the dissension» in the
camp of the enemy »lipping from them.
But they made a hard tight. The confu
sion was so great that the clerk got uc
further than the first name. "Too late,
too latel" shouted tbe Democrats oh Mr,
Reed tried to make himself heard above
the uproar. At last by dint of hard pound
iug a semblance of quiet was restored.
A storm of protest came from the Re
publican side, but the speaker declined to
interrupt the roll call, and amid intense
excitement the roll was taken up. The sil
ver men were 74 short of the necessary
two-thirds to pass the bill over the veto.
On March 1, when the bill passed tbe
tho bouse, the vote stood 108 to 131). Yes
terday it stood 144 to 114. One hundred
and twenty Democrats, 18 Republicans mid
6 Populists voted to carry the bill over the
veto and 58 Republicans and 30 Democrat»
against it.
In the Senate,
In tbe morning hour tbe senate passed
after a warm controversy the senate bill
for the supprension of gambling in the Dis
trict ot Columbia, with au amendment pro
posed by Senator Allen prohibiting pool
■elling on horse roces.
The senate also considered briefly a rcso
1 u t inn offered by Senator Poffer for the re
peal of all laws which give the secretary
of tbe treasury authority to issue band«,
and Senator Fetter spoke in support of it.
Then the tariff lull was laid before the
and Mr. Allison concluded bit
senate,
speech in opposition. His remarks wer*
directed in particular against t he substi
tution of the ad valorem for the specific
system and against the tax on sugar. He
also opposed the increase on distilled liqttoi
and the tax on incomes, while at the sum*
time he delivered a strung attack against
the policy of "following in the footstep*
of England ami of opening our markets to
that country," thus giving her the gold
with which to wage her battle against tb*
world and bimetallism.
At tbe conclusion of his speech Mr. Mills
took the floor In defense of the »d valorem
system of taxation and confessed that the
bill did not meet with bis entire approval,
but it was always necessary to compro
mise iu legislation.
