DOINGS IN CONGRESS.
New Silver Bill Reported in the Senate. THE CALL-CHANDLER QUARREL. Coke Speaks Against the Blair Edu cational Bill and Stanford in Favor of It. Associated Press Dispatches to The Herald. Washington, February 25.—1n the Senate today a number of bills were re ported aud placed on the calendar; among them is one to authorize the pur chase of gold and silver bullion and issue Treasury notes in payment. The bill directs the purchase of silver bullion to the amount of $4,500,000 a month, and as much gold bullion as may be offered, and the issue of Treasury notes thereon, and repeals the law directing the coinage of 2,000,000 silver dollars per month. Beck said the report from the finance committee was not unani mous; he opposed it. Sherman and McPherson are also said to be opposed to the bill. THE CALL-CHANDLER FEUD. In the debate on the resolution offered yesterday by Chandler censuring Call for interpolating in the record a paragraph that had not been spoken, that waa unparliamentary and person ally offensive, Call gave notice to Chandler that he would arraign him before the Senate and demand an investigation by a committee for making a false accusation. He (Call) would con vict the Senator on evidence of his own, that he did hear and know that he (Call) had uttered on the floor of the Senate substantially the whole of the charge contained in the paragraph. He would not ask censure by the Senate of Chandler, but would leave him to the judgment of the country for having heard his (Call's) remarks and having had neither the courage nor the manhood to resent them. Sherman declared that the rules of the Senate had just been violated by the Sen ator from Florida in as gross a manner as he had ever witnessed. When the United States Senate came to such a condition that cowardice could be ap plied to a Senator and that Senator could be charged with stating a thing falsely, it seemed to him the Senate was reced ing from its dignity. Gall replied that if he was not at lib erty to state when the resolution was not true, that he could prove it, and that the Senator, wheu he made the charge, knew it was not true, then he did not understand the rules of the Senate. But if, in the judgment of the Senate, it was improper to use such language, he would withdraw it. Chandler once more explained hia resolution, and added: "The Senator (Call) used language about me which I did not hear. He wrote language in the report accusing me of all the crimes in the decalogue. He has now, this morn ing, charged me with being a coward for not replying to that which I did not hear, and which he afterwards wrote in the record. When the Senate has decided which language it is parliamentary to nse, I will take occasion to defend my self from all imputations." THE BLAIR BILL —COKE OPPOSES IT. The Blair Educational bill was taken np as unfiuished business, and Coke ad dressed the Senate in opposition to it. He said it clearly violated the constitu tion, and as a measure of policy it was most unwise and mischievous. It had constantly declined in public favor, until now the indications gave good ground to hope for its defeat. The passage of the bill would be a slanderous imputation on every State in the Union. It would be the first and irrevr V» step in the transfer of the jurisd com mon schools from the ftuuco > the National Government. STANFORD FAVORS IT. Stanford addressed the Senate in advo cacy of the bill. It seemed to him to proceed upon the right principle. He assumed its constitutionality, and then the important fact to be considered was whether national legislation was neces sary. Illiteracy was conceded, and also the fact that some States had not been able to meet tbe question; Federal aid, therefore, became necessary. When edu cation became nniversal, the question of race distinction would be obliterated. It was intended that the bill should benefit both sexes alike, and he hoped that un der its provisions women would be edu cated in different callings of life suitable to their sex. From education grow morality and religion in harmony with the sublime and always beneficent Cre ator. The result would be to make humanity better, wiser and happier. It was through .education that possibilities were to be ascertained and obtained, therefore he was strongly in favor of the passage of the bill. Reagan obtained the floor to speak against the bill, and the Senate ad journed. PRESIDENTIAL APPOINTMENTS.

Ban Francisco, February 25. —Sarah Althea Terry is still on trial in the United States District Court on the charge of contempt for the scene created in the court room during the reading of the de cision of Justice Field in September, 1888.

He detailed the circum stances connected with her removal from the Circuit Court room, and produced the pistol which was found in Mrs. Terry's satchel. When the pistol was shown, Mrs. Terry rose and said: "That man (meaning Marshal Franks) killed my husband." She started to repeat the statement, but was induced by her counsel to take her seat. Defendant's counsel asked the Marshal a number of questions, giving tbe impres sion that he was prejudiced against Mrs. Terry. When asked if he wanted to see defendant convicted the Marshal replied he did not care particularly one way or the other. -J \ StlM.'i* LOST. A Disabled Ship Adrift In a Tcr- rlble Storm.
