AT THE CAPITAL.
Speaker Reed Publishes a Statement. CARLISLE FRAMING AN ADDRESS. A Lively Week Ahead in Congress— Secretary Blame's Eldest Daughter Dead. [.Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald.] AVashington, February 2. —Speaker Reed today made to a representative of the Associated Press the following state ment concerning the Republican position in the present great controversy: "Mr. Carlisle was entirely right when he said in substance that the decision of the House that a quorum was constituted to do business when a majority of the' House was present, would change from the foundation the method Pi" doing busi ness. It will certainly do «o, for it will enable the majority elected by the peo ple to rule by their own votes, and not by the sufferance of the minority. "The rale cf the majority is at the very base of our Government. If it be not a true rule our faith is vain, and we are yet in our sins. Look at the prac tical working of the other doctrine. The Republicans have a majority of seven, but they have only three over a quorum; 168 ia our number; 165 is a quorum. If we are to furnish a quorum with the whole Democratic party silent when buaine3B is to be transacted, but vocal when it is to be obstructed, then there cai be but three Republicans absent, on the penalty of the stoppage of public business. "Now, let tie BGe how that worka. We are allowed but three absentees. Rock well is sick; it would endauger his life to come. Wilber is iv the sani9 case. T. W. Browne is too sick to be able to be there all the titan. Caswell's wife was dying. Another must be with his wife for reasons somewhat similar. Just about this number of members will at all times be sick or incapacitated. These may get well, but others will fall sick in their turn. Toen there >'s our quorum, at c >rding to Carlisle's idea, gone, entirely gone to piecen, though even after all fraud be deducted the people 1a 1 found for the Republicans by a maj >rity. All thia time, while we ara keeping in the House other men hardly less sick, 140 to 100 Demo crats sit there silent. Ia it possible that the United States is paying the3e gentle men $13 a day without even the poor privileges of counting their silent forms? "Mr. Carlisle says there is no prece dent for the decision of the House. I have personally seen and heard him fur nish a hundred. A hundred times I have heard him declare that the number for and against such a bill was—say 80 for and 20 against, mathematically less than a quorum, and yet declare the bill passed, and sign it, thereby certifying nnder the moat solemn sanction of his oath of office that the bid had properly and constitutionally passed the House. How could he do this if his doctrine be true that a quorum must vote? Understand me, day after day Mr. Carlisle, in my presence, has declared such a bill received bo many votes for and against, by his own count as Speaker less than a quorum, and yet immediately declared it passed and has signed it, thus furnishing the only proof the President could have that it passed. How could this be except on the plain ground that if a quorum did Hot vote, the presence of a quorum was enough. "But this matter does not need argu ment. In Mr. G irlisle's own State, in Democratic Tennessee, in Democratic New York, in Democratic Ohio, in Mas sachusetts, and in the courtß everywhere, as you may see by Mr. Butterworth's speech, the doctrine just upheld by the House is the law of the land, and it ought to be if good government is not to perish from the face of the earth. Not a ruling has been made in the House to suppress filibustering which has not the full sanction of parliamentary law. That men should resist it only shows how in grained the wrong course has become and how neceesary the remedy. "What is the House trying to do? Why, to perform its highest functions, that of decidinsr the right of a member to his seat. Until 1882 no man ever dared to filibuster against such a rase. No man ought to be allowed to do it to day. Yet every day three hours are wasted in approving the journal when five minutes would be ample. These three hours belong to public business. The people do not understand that every wantofl roll call consumes three-qnarters of an hour. When we first came here the obstructionisis declared they would die in the last ditch against any rules they did not approve of; and' now they are wanting to die at Thermop ylae in defence of the liberties of their country, because we don't force some rules on them: . If there could be fewer deaths at Thermopylae and more busi ness in the House the country would be better off. It is true that Democratic leaders like Mr. Carlisle have long since ceased to participate in defiance of good government, hut they should now make themselves heard affirmatively on the Bide of order." Carlisle Preparing an Address. Washington, February 2. —Mr. Car lisle said this evening that he was pre paring an address, giving an explanation of the Democratic position, and it prob ably will be made public tomorrow or Tuesday. THE WEEK'S FORECAST. Some Lively Times Expected In Both House and. >euste. Washington, February 2.—The Blair Educational bill is likely to consume a large part of the time of the Senate this week. There is a probability of a re newal of the set of speeches on tbe race problem, but the majority of the Demo cratic Senators are disposed to withhold their remarks on that subject until it comes before the Senate in connection with such a measure as the National Election bill. In the Secret sessions the Morgan and Dorchester nominations are expected to be called np. In the House of Representatives tbe Republicans hope to have a quorum of their own members present tomorrow or next day, and to be able to force a vote and finally dispose of tbe pending elec tion case in such a manner as to preclude tbe possibility of judicial intervention. Meanwhile the committee on elections is preparing to report the case of Atkinson xa. Pendleton, from the first West Vir , ginia district. There is aa expectation that the com mittee on rules will present a code to tho House within a few days. THE LOS A GELES DAILY HERALD: MONDAY MOKglgg. FEBRUARY 3, 1890 ITIKS. COPPIN'-ER DEAD. Four Deaths In Ike Ulalne Family in Thirty-five Days. Washington, February 2 —Mrs. Col. Cmpinger, Secretary Blame's eldest daughter, died at her father's residence here this morning. Death was caused by congestion of the brain, induced by la grippe. All the im mediate members of the family were present at the moment, Colonel Cop pinger having arrived from the West yesterday. This ia the fourth death in the family of Secretary Blame within the past thirty-five days, and is the second of hia children to die within that time from illness brought on by la grippe. The President, members of the Cabinet and many other friends called today to ex press sympathy. The funeral will prob ably take place Tuesday from St. Matthew's Catholic church, and Father Sherman, son of General Sherman, is expected to conduct the services. Mrs. Copptnger was 30 years of age, and was married about seven years ago. A CANADIAN SENSATION. . General middleton Charged With Despoiling- Settlers. New York, February I.—An Ottawa ppecial says: A printed statement en titled "An Appeal from the Northwest," is being actively circulated among the members of Parliament. It is from some Settlers of Bresaylor in the far West, who claim that during the Northwest re bellion in 1885, although they were all loyal to the crown, they were treated as rebeis, their goods being looted by the soldiers; they were refused protection and exposed to the assaults and thievery of the Indians, and generally ill-treated. The document charges General Sir Fred erick Middleton,commander of the North west expedition, with appropriating a stock of fura belonging to one Bremner, for which Bremner has never been com pensated. The appeal says: "Wehave proof that General Middleton took these furs under pretense of keeping them safe for Bremner. We have proof that these furs were shipped by General Middle ton's order to Himself and others, and when a deputation brought the matter hefore the Minister of the Interior, we were assured that Bremner would be paid for his furs, whether he would be paid for his other losses or not." The matter has created a profound sensation. PERHAPS THE ERIN. An Unknown Steamer Seen to Fenuder at Sea. Baltimore, February 2. —Captain Balls, of the steamer Brampton, reports that on January 23d, in latitude 33:44 north, longitude 51:00 west, while a hur ricane prevailed, a steamer was sighted ahead. The steamer was a loaded brig antine-rigged vessel, with lower yard and double topsails on the foremast, and had a flush deck aft. She was not more than a mile distant when the hurricane strengthened and began to blow terriffl cally. Captain Balls had to attend to his own vessel, but at one time saw the othor one make a dive and her stern raise up until he could see the keel. Just then followed about ten minutes in which he could see nothing on account of the gale's fury. When he could look the steamer was nowhere to be Been. The general impression was tbat the vessel foundered with all on board. An Arkansas Kilter. Mariana, Ark., February 2. —A timber man, nam6d Kelly, employed near Alli gator bay, hearing tbat his wife, from whom be had been separated about a year, was intimate with a 19-year-old boy, went to the house Saturday morn ing, and finding Mrs. Kelly and tbe boy there, opened fire on the latter, killing him instantly. Mrs. Kelly retaliated by firing twice at her husband, who then shot and tilled her. Kelly, only slightly wounded, went to a neighbor named Ovvena, made him saddle ahorsejtnl start out. with him, ostensibly to Sorest City. As nothing has been heard from them, it is feared Owens was also mur dered, an old grudge, it is said, having existed between them. A Furious llltiid Flan. New York, February 2 —Emil Meyers, a blind m<vn, living at 1282 Second ave nue, struck and seriously injured his wife with a hammer, tonight, and then jumped out of tbe window to the street, ■ killing himself. Craps fiettlng Up lv the World. "Anythirjg that is a novelty is good form," is an edict laid down by some society leader, so, if it's new, society, in stead of holding up her hands, holds them out. Tnis, perhaps, accounts for that prompt acceptance of a new game which is just coming in as a parlor amusement in Kansas City, although in certain circles its undiminished popularity is not new. The other night, in honor of his birthday, a prominent young East Side attorney in vised a number of his lady and gentlemen friends to a "crap-shooting" party, and those who were present say it was a great success. The young ladies, and, it is to be supposed, most of the young men, had to be initiated into the mysteries of "Come seven—eleven !" but they all proved apt pupils. The la dies especially manifested great delight in the game, and learned how to ?nap their Augers after a throw in the most approved fashion. Pennies were used for chips, and handsome favors were given to the most successful "shooters." Although the season is a little late, pro gressive craps promises to become very popular before Lent. —[Kansas City Star. Protection and the Farmer. A protectionist journal insists that it is not the custom houae tariff that compels tbe farmers in Kansas and Ne b aska to burn corn instead of coal for fuel. This is a euper fc*al view. The custom house tariff Dot only prevents the farmer from profit ably exchanging his corn for other taxed nerejsaries he needs, but the cost of the railroads has been nearly doubled at the same time and the cost of carriage has been thereby greatly increased. The cost of carrying corn on taxed rails is graduated according to the tax.—[Phila delphia Record. At Auction Monday. W. E.
