Republicans Filibuster Against the Tucker Bill. Administration Democrats Assist the Obstructionists. Senator Lindsay Makes a Bpeaeh In De fense of Secretary Carlisle and In Favor or the Kepeal 1:111. Tariff Hearings. By the Associated Press, Washington, Seat. 15.—The Repub licans continued the deadlock in the affairs of the house today in order to prevent Tncker from reporting his bill repealing tbe federal election laws to the bouse. They are determined tbat the bill shall not receive a place on tbe cal endar until, the Democrats produce a qnornm. In their policy of delay they were again joined by General Tracey and a small number of administration Dem ocrats, who are opposed to going ahead with tbe Tucker bill at thla time. Tbe revoking of all leaves bf absence, by an order yesterday, bore frnit to the extent of 40 additional Democrats today, but leaving them still 31 short of a quorum, exclusive of those wbo are acting wilh Ueneral Tracey. Burrows renewed bis motion to dis pense with the call of committees, in order to prevent the bill from being re ported. A roll call was ordered. Reed walked up and down the aisles, shaking his head. The Republicans obeyed their leader and refraiued from voting. The administration Democrat? fled to the cloak room to avoid answering to their names. The vote resulted: Yeas 1, nays 140—no quorum. It developed a gain of 40 votes for the Democrats, leav ing them 31' short of a quorum. A call of tbe honse was ordered. The call de veloped the presence oa 237 members. Tbe filibustering today lasted till 2 o'clock, when, by a previous order of the bouse, eulogies on the late Representa tive Chipman of Michigan were deliv ered. The house then adjourned. Mr. Tucker and his colleagues hardly expect to be able to muster a quorum tomorrow, and on Monday the honse will participate in a body in the cere monies attending tbe centennial cele bration of the laying of the corner stone of the capitol. On Tuesday, however, they confidently anticipate the presence of their own quorum, and then they will be able to brush aside the opposition of the Republicans. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. Lindsay Spanks In Favor of Ita peal auil lin rami s Carlisle. Washington, Sept- 15. —In the senate today, the speech of Senator Lindsay of Kentucky and his detonse of Secretary Carlisle, whose successor in th. senate be is, was received most attentatively. Tomorrow eulogies will be delivered upon the late Senator Stanford of California. Among the petitions presented today was one by Cnllom of Illinois, from ex soldier residents of his state, alleging that tbey are beset by detectives of tbe government traveling in disguise, se cretly cooperating with those who have been distinguished for antipathy for those who fonght for the flag. It is al leged tbat the zpies with friendly pre tenses visit the homes of pensioners and with the basest hyprocisy and fawning deception, seek to find some clue to fur nish to tbe pension office to deprive the old veterans of pensions. The petition ers ask protection from the methods of the government officers who attempt to brand pensioners as perjurers and crim inals without the right of being heard in their own detente. Cullom said tho petition contained very serious allegations which, if true, should he brought to light. Manderson (Rep.) ol Nebraska, sub mitted a resolution wich went over till tomorrow, asking information of the interior department as to the abolition or consolidation of tbe land offices in Nebraska. Other states were included at tbe suggestion of different senators. Manderson said if offices were abolished or consolidated in Nebtaska, it has been done without consultation with the congiessional delegation from that state. In tbe beginning of his speech in favor of the repeal bill, Lindsay called attention to the fact that the bill now under consideration contains not a word looking to the discontinuance of silver coinage under tbe existing laws, and leaves unimpaired the provisions of tbe act of ISiW for t'le coinage of silver in the future. He characterized as most extraordinary the position that we ought not, bad as the present law is, repeal it until it is known what future, legislation in the interest of silver the president will propose. He said he had read the president's message in vain to find tbe evidence upon which Senator I'ugh rests his belief that the preaident does not intend to keep faith with the party and the people. Lindsay then took up the charge of inconsistency ao frequently made of late against Secretary Carlisle, and defended htm at length against the accusations. At the conclusion of Lindsay's speech Morgan (Dem.) of Alabama spoke in op position to repeal, and was followed by Higgins (Hep.) of Delaware in favor of repeal. Higgins said in his opinion the remedy was to stop the purchase of sil ver and see whether Buch action, coupled with that of India, would not compel England and Europe to resume the free coinage of silver. At the conclusion of Higginß's speech tbe senate, after a short executive ses sion, adjourned. TARIFF HEARINGS. A Number of Importer! and Manufac turers State Their Views, Washington, Sept. 15. —Importers of hosiery and gloves, manufacturers of plush, velvet and cotton goods and pearl-workers were represented before the ways and means committee in tbe tariff arguments today. Tho first speaker was Maurice Lowy, an importer of hosiery and gloves. He asked for a specific dnty on the articles, in preference to an ad valorem duty. Owen Osborne next argued for tbe re tention of the duties on cotton goods. Titus Bheard championed the knit goods industry and favored a system of ad valorem and specific duties com bined, and asked thet the duties be per mitted to remain as they are now. Fred E. Kip, in tbe interest of the plush and velvet industry, declared that if the specific and ad valorem dutieß now imposed were removed it would in flict a great injury on the wage-earners employed in the industry. A. fianford, representing the cotton yarn industry, declared if tbe tariff was reduced it would be necessary to de crease the wages of tbe workmen. 8. B. Chase wanted no chanjje in tho tariff schedules in the cotton industry, but, if a change was necessary, would prefer a reduction to au advance in the ad valorem duties. J. O'Connell, an importer of knit goods, wanted a specific dnty. He said the ad valorem duty opened too many avenues for fraud. After recess Gustav Blnmenthal of New York was heard in the interest of the importation of buttons. He thought the tariff on buttons was too hij-h, and said the tariff under tha old lawa waa sufficient to protect manufacturers here. Richard Itanft wanted felts transferred to tbe wool schedule, and eaid he was willing to pay whatever tariff was on wool. A. C. Raymond, an attorney repre senting the National Pearl Button As sociation, said they were satisfied with tbe present duty on pearl buttons. Searles Brice, a gold beater, argued for a high protective tariff on the pro duct of the industry be represented. Christian Schmidt wanted tbe raw material entering into the manufacture of straw hate admitted free of duty. 11. K. Kiddle, representing the Linen Trade association of New York, said the association desired to have a uniform rate of duty imposed on all classed of 1 inane. H. D. Cooper of New York wanted ad valorem duties on jute and burlap. E. C. Frisby of Hartford, Ct., asked the committee to modify the duty on Liebig's extract of beef. Adjourned. THE CHINESE QUESTION. A STaR-CHAMRRR session held AT THK WHITE HOUSE. The Everett Bill the Subject Under Cou- Sldertfttlun—The Faolfie Ooast, Con greeemen Will runt It Tooth and. Nail. Washington, Sept. 15.—President Cleveland, Secretaries Greaham and Carlisle, Attorney-General Olney and Representative McCreary of Kentucky, chairman of the foreign affairs commit tee of the house, which has the Chinese queston in hand, in the shape of the Everett bill, had a conference at the White Houee tbis afternoon. The sub ject of the meeting is understood to have been the Chinese question. No further information could bo obtained regarding the conference, except that one of those present said it was not on a subject now agitating the public mind. The action of the sub-committee on foreign affairs last night, refusing to nc . eept Geary'b amendment providing for absolute means of identification by pho tographing or otherwise, in order to prevent the use of Chinese registration certificates by others, resnlted in the decision of the Pacific coast members, led by Geary and White, to fight the bill tooth and nail. It appears that although this identi fication provision is deemed essential, the underlying and private reason for the determination to fight the exten sion of the time to register, is the fear tbat the law will be again passed upon by the supreme court. This would re open the whole question and might re sult in tbe decision by the supreme court that the Geary exclusion law is unconstitutional. The decision by which its constitutionality was upheld was only rendered by a majority of one in the supreme court, Justice Harlan being absent. He is now hero and it is feared that in caße the matter should again come before tho court tne former decision would be reversed. Geary de clares that, while it may be impossible to defeat the Everett bill in the house in case the committee on rules brings in an order, it can be defeated in tbe senate. HUI L IN THIS LEAD.

The Cherokee Outlet to Be Thrown Open Today. Boomers Ready to Enter and Possess the Land. The Strip Expected to Have 125,000 Population by Nightfall. Certificates Granted to 78,000 Prospect ive Settlers—The Race to Be Made with Horses, Bicycles and Railway Trains. By the Associated Press. 1 Arkansas City, Kan., Sept. 15.—At noon tomorrow tbe Cherokee strip passes from the government to the home-seekers. Thanks to the relief af forded by the interior department there is now every prospect tbat all will ob tain certificates. There has been a steady exodus today and tonight of cer tificate holding home-seekers irom towns and camps to convenient placeß along the border whence an advantageous start can be made. Tbe farmers have about all secured certificates and have loaded their prairie schooners and moved on with their families. The speculators, townsiters and gamblers Btill remain in the towns, and will go on tomorrow's railway trains. UOW THK RACE WILL HE MAOE; The Santa Fe will run six trains for tbe boomers. Three will start from this Bide the line and three from the Okla homa side. On the Kiowa line one train will be run in each direction. The Rock Island will run six trains, three couth from Caldwell and three north from Hennessey, O. T. These trains will be run under the supervision of the interior department at a speed not ex ceeding 12 miles an hour. Most of the men seeking homestead claims will make the race on horses. Some will go on foot and a few on bicycles. THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES. The entries are estimated at 78,000. Twenty-five thousand will go from Ar kansas City and vicinity; 15,000 from Caldwell, 3000 from Kiowa, 3000 from Hunneweli, 11,000 from Orlando, 9000 from Stillwater, and 5000 from other points. Half the home-seekers, it is estimated, have families, and the popu lation of the Ktrin tomorrow night will i>o ut least 100,000-. AT THK REGISTRATION BOOTHS. The booth in this town was besieged all day. Double lines were formed, each containing at least 5000 people. At 6 o'clock thia evening about 8000. certifi cates had been issued, but the lines still contain fully an equal numberof people. Tbe booth will be kept open all night. The establishment of this booth in town undoubtedly has been the means of sav ing many lives today, as it was compar atively sheltered and the people had an opportunity of getting water and food which tbey could not do at the other booths. One coneequence of its estab lishment was that the largest propor tion of the people at the outside booths abandoned them and made a grand rush for town, leaving about the booths on the border only 5600 people, who applied for registration during the day. At 6 o'clock about 1500 were in line there. A booth was opened at Guthrie yes terday and about 1000 certificates had been issued, when word came from Washington that the booth must be moved to Orlando. At tho latter point about 7000 certificates were issued today. At Caldwell practically all have been Bupplied with certificates. At Hennessey today a man named Niblook, said to have been a liquor dealer from Kansas City, fell dead in the line. He had paid $25 during the day in $5 installments to get ahead in the line. A GAMBLER COMES TO ORIEP. At Stillwater tbis afternoon, J. H. Cardwell of Gainesville, Texas, was bun coed out of $260. As soon as he realised what had been done, he started for the confidence man with a gun. The gam bler ran, but tbe Texan brought him to the ground with a bullet in tbe shoulder, and not only recovered bis own money, but $700 in addition. Commendation was so general that the gambler madeno effort to recover his money. CONTRABAND CERTIFICATES. At Gnthtie a contraband business in certificates has been going on since Tuesday, and it is estimated that there and at Oklahoma City from 500 to 1000 persons have given from $5 up for cer tificates. If they are genuine, trouble is in store for some of tbe booth clerks. The plan of operation was for a man to sign an official declaration, which was taken to Orlando on Ihe afternoon train aud a certificate returned the next morn ing. Tbe persons in tbe scheme at this end say they divided the profits with the clerks. CAMPED ALONG THE LINE. Tonight thousands are camped along the line, tbeir campfires making an al most unbroken chain along the border. Today was cool in comparison with tbe last few days, the thermometer standing at 90, with the wind from the north. The indicatiobs ior tomorrow are for a clear, warm day, with north erly winds. A TERRIBLE SCRAMBLE. St. Louis, Sopt. 15.—A special to the Republic from Guthrie, O. T., Bays: Fifteen thousand people are massed about the Santa Fe depot, ready to fight for a place on thi first train tomorrow. The railway company will not be able to carry over half these people, and the struggle for a place on the train will be a terrible one. Nineteen people weid prostrated with heat today and three died. One young women went raving crazy and is locked in jail, with no cine to her identity. Several large fires were started upon the Strip tonight, and it is feared many settlers will be caught in them tomorrow and burned. BANKERS WARNED. The Starr- Dalton Gang Expeted to Wake a Hald Today. Kansas City, Sept. 15.—The Star's Arkansas City special says l A scout rode in from the Ilollister ranch thia morn ing and notified the banks that a rem nant of the 1 alton-Starr gang was camped 30 miles south. He said it was the intention of the gang to raid the banks here tomorrow after the people had left the town for the border.

RIO BESET WITH REBELS THE SITUATION IN BRAZIL IS VERY SERIOUS. President Peixoto Bald to Have Retired to the Interior—The Revolution lie olrily Spreading — Bom bardment of Bio. New York, Sept. 15.—The Herald's Buenos Ayres dispatch says: News re ceived from Bio Janeiro indicates that the situation there is very serious. It is believed here that the navy revolters have gained a foothold in the capital. President Peixoto, it is claimed, haa abandoned the coast and capital and re tired to Santa Ana with the portion of the army which remains loyal. Here he will await tbe attack from tbe landing party. Advices Irom Rio state tbat the bom bardment of tbe city haa been bus pended. Word is received that the rev olntion is spreading. It ia reported tha tbe states of Bahia and Pernambuc have declared in favor of the revolution ists. The garrisons in Fort Villegagnon and all the other forts in the harbor o Rio Janeiro, except one, have revoltec and joined Admiral Mello'a forces. Preparations have been made in tbe harbor of Rio Grande to resist an at tack from the hostile squadron. From the tone of Brazilian newspaper* re ceived here, it is predicted that Peixoto' government will be overthrown at an early date. Buenos Ayres, Sept. 15. —A dispatch from Rio Janeiro, received last night, says tbe insurgent vessels are continn ing the bombardment of various places in the barbor and have caused much damage. All work in the harbor is for bidden and vessels are prevented from communicating with the land. After the bombardment ol Wednesday the authorities of Rio admitted that the damage was more severe than they al first were willing to admit. The govern ment no longer attempts to conceal the fact that a few people were killed anc some buildings damaged. It is known that numerous buildings were struck bnt whether the shells were intendec for the city or for the arsenal cannot be determined, though it is known tbat the firing was very wild. The rebel gun boats fired from shelter behind the island which dot the bay, so the fir from the forts was ineffective. Firing i said to have been resumed yesterday with about the same results aB the day before. AN AWFUL BUtOHIKT, Kito Colored Prleonere Massacred In an Alabama Jail.

RESOLUTION FAVORINCI AN EX TENSION of Tine por no>ooL» IANSTO REQISTER VOTED DOWN PRICE FIVE CENTS- ANOTHER TRAIN ROBBERY. Northern Michigan the Scene of a Bold Crime. An Express Car Robbed on the Mineral Range Road. The Thieves Secured 875,000 Cash and Made Their Escaps. The Money Was Intended for the Em ployees of the Ualumet and Hecla Copper Mine—A Party of Sports Arrested. By the Associated Press. Houghton, Mich., Sept. 15.—The ex press car of the Mineral Range passen ger train which left Hancock at 9 o'clock tbis morning for Calnmet was "held np" nnd robbed by bandits half a mile from Boston Station, about half an hoar later. The robbers secured $75,000 in cash. The money was intended for the employes of the Calnmet and Hecla cop per mine, for whom tomorrow was pay day. The money was drawn tbis morn ing from tbe First National bank of Houghton and the Superior Savings bank of Hancock. The express car wag in charge of Mes senger D. W. Hogan, and there were no special guards. The train was going along at the usual speed and was within half a mile of a little Btation called Bos ton, five miles from here, when a man stepped into the middle of the track and flagged the train. The engineer quickly applied tbe brakes. No thought of train robbers entered his mind. The man disappeared behind the Btation house and when tbe train stopped two woman passengers got off. HOW THE JOB WAS DONE. At that moment a masked man jumped on the locomotive and pointed a revolver at Engineer Schuler and or dered him to stop. Tbe engineer thought he was fooling or was a lunatic, but his gun went off, and tbe engineer knew he was at the mercy of tbe des perado. The fellow pushed tbe engi neer into a corner of the cab and grabbed the lever to keep tbe engine moving, showing familiarity in handling; an engine. Fireman Sutherland jumped ont and was met by two more of the robbers, wbo fired at him, ordering him back. He had no alternative but to obey. Two more robbers, in the mean time, got on the front end of the ex press and with aaiedge em ashed in the car door. \ MESSENGER nOOAN'B STORY. Express Messenger Hogan tells thia story of what followed: "I was sitting in my chair," he said, "with my feet on a box, singing, when I heard a crash and looking up saw a masked man covering me with two re volvers and ordering 'hands up, there.' Another man was just behind him. I threw np my hands mighty quick, and the iobbers took my gun away. Then they demanded the keys of the safe. I pretended to be looking for the right key, when they threatened to kill me. I then opened the safe and took out four packages of currency and one of the robbers scooped them into a bag he car ried. Backing out of the car door again they fired two shots, evidently as a sig nal to the robber on tbe engine, who ordered the engineer to go on, saying: 'You will find a rail pnlled up about three miles ahead.' " THE ROBBERS MAKE THEIR ESCAPE. The engineer pnlled the throttle wide open and flew for tbe Osceola telegraph ofhce when the news of the robbery waa at once telegraphed here. The robbers on leaving the train disappeared in the woods, the one who had the treasure waving hia hands at the passengers, wbo were ignorant of what had taken place, so quickly was the robbery com pleted. Among the passengers waa Teller Fish of the First .National bank of Hancock, with $40,000 in currency in bis pockets, but the robbere did not know it. As Boon as the train arrived at Calu met tbe Calumet and Hecla company sent nearly 100 deputy sheriffs in every . direction in chase. Sheriff Dunn also sent deputies out from Hcughton, and tng boats were sent along the lake shuie to cut off the thieves by water. Every road is closely guarded. A NUMBER OP ARRESTS MADE. Jack King, the Cornish wrestler, John Kehoe, a sport, and Jach Challew were seen driving very fast into town about 10 o'clock, and persons near Boston Bta tion saw a horse corresponding in color to theirs tied np near the station. Theae men and a man named Gorman were arrested, and tbe cine against them seems to be every strong one. The con ductor of the train, who saw the robbera walk away, thinks their gait and general appearance corresponds with these men. Jack Challew's wife atlampted to leave by tbe noon train, but flhe waa brought back. The prisoners were pot under $10,000 bonds, in default of which they were placed in jail. They will have a hearing at 2 o'clock tomorrow. A man named Bntler, from Marquette, - was also arrested thiß evening and will have an examination with the others to morrow. MINERS PAID JUST THE 8 A MB* The robbery does not interfere with paying off the minors at the Calumsat and Hecla, as banks in the country loaned them all the funds needed for the purpose. The loss by the robbery falls on the AmericanExpreßß company, which ordered the best detectives from Chicago tonight. The wildest excite ment prevails throughout the country, as this is the first train robber ia tha history of the copper region. Negotiation* for St. Nicholas Kola* Washington, Sept. 15.*—Negotiations looking to the acquisition of the mole at St. Nicholas, Hayti, for use by tha United States as a coaling station, will be reopened by Henry Smythe, the new minister to Hayti.
