ver ia sealed and tbe aenatora all know it. You ahall not commit the deed if weean prevent it by any honorable means known to the usage of the sen ate. Onr duty ie plain tons. We be lieve we are tbe last hope and bulwark of tbe people in this last struggle." Voorhees said tbat to establish a clo ture rule in the senate at thia time, wonld occupy not merely the balance of this session but the entire session. It was futile to speak of that, but he gave notice that beginning tomorrow morn ing be would ask that the daily sessions be extended. Teller gave notice that when the daily seeßiona were extended into night, tbe advocates of the bill, aa well aa its oppo nente would have to be present. Hill asked whether Teller was not satisfied that there waa a majority in the eenate favorable to repeal. Teller replied that when a vote of the senate on the question waa taken, it showed a majority of almost two thirda against the measure, and he would not inault the intelligence of tbe body by presuming that it had changed bo com pletely in bo short a time. At 10 minutes of 2 o'clock Mills took the floor. He discussed at length tbe necessity of maintaining a stable stan dard, reviewing the history of the coun try in ita efforts to attain that end, and declared that continued fluctuation had a more depressing effect upon the farmers and other laborers than upon capitalists and merchants. In conclu sion Mills eaid that be would vote for the repeal of tbe Sherman law, and against every amendment which the ingenuity of tbe human mind conld conceive. . No amendment could be offered to the bill, except one which impeached the good faith of the presi dent, and that he did not intend to do. After a brief executive session the senate adjourned. FAILED TO APPEAR. Democrat* In the Home Unable to Secure a Quorum. Washinoton, Sept. 19.—The quorum of Democratic members upon which the leaders counted today failed to put in an appearance, and for three hours, by skillful maneuvering the Republicans were able to deadlock the house. The failure to secure a quorum bo chagrined the house leaders that they threw up the sponge, adjourned and went into caucus. In caucus a general unanimity of sen timent was expressed for immediate ac tion. Resolutions were unanimously adopted declaring it the sense of the caucus that it is the duty of the Demo cratic members of congress to attend the sessions and vote, in order tbat the public business may be considered and disposed of, and that when the house meets tomorrow it remain in session continuously until a quorum is ob tained. Further, that the house should proceed at the earliest practicable day to the consideration oi a bill or bills re pealing the laws authorizing deputy marshals and supervisors of elections at the polls. At the opening of the house session, this morning, Flynn, delegate from Oklahoma, created a sensation by ask ing for immediate consideration of a resolution bearing on outrages Baid to have been committed by United States troops at the opening of the Cherokee strip last Saturday. Gates of Alabama objected to present consideration of the resolution nnd thereupon the' struggle to prevent a report on the Tucker bill repealing ttie federal Maws was resumed. For three hours filibustering under the leadership of Burrows waa continued. Roll call followed roll call until it became appar ent that tbe Democrats could not mutter a quorum of their own, being six short when they made the beet ehowing. When the Democrats announced the necessity of a caucus to whip the recalci trant members into line, the Republic ans signalized their victory by cheering wildly. Tbe house then adjourned and the caucus followed. TARIFF HEARINGS. A Democratic Governor Raises HU Voloe for Protection. Washington, Sept. 19.—Tbe beet sugar manufacturers were well represented be fore the committee on ways and means today. The chief speaker was Mr. Ox nard of Nebraska, president of the Amer ican Beet Sugar association. He said congress had no moral right to repeal tbe sugar bounty clause of the McKinley law. T. R. Cutler of Utah, E. P. Fowler and H. C. Hect of California also spoke against the repeal of the bounty pro vision. John Dimond of Louisiana also strongly protested against the repeal of the sugar bounty law. J. H. Hubbard spoke for the Louisiana rice planters and urged the committee not to reduce the tariff duties on rice. At the afternoon session a large num ber of gentlemen from Virginia, Mary land and Pennsylvania appeared to protest against any reduction of the duty on coal. Governor McCorkle of West Virginia said be was not a miner, but the governor of a state which had 16,000 square miles of coal mines, and he wanted protection for the greatest industry in his state, pleading elo quently for the retention of the duties on coal. When tbe governor had fin ished Mr. Tarsney asked: "The platform upon which you were elected was for a reduction of duties, was it not?" "Yes, sir." "Then why are you advocating pro tection?" "I do not believe in a tariff which gives four or five times as high protec tion to one industry as another." Reed said he had in vain attempted to explain to the Democratic members the fallacy of their position, but with the assistance ot a Democratic governor, elected on a Democratic platform, he might finally accomplish hia purpose. Adjourned. THE EVERETT BILL. It Will Not Re Reported Before Next Thursday. Washington, Sept. 19.—The commit tee on foreign affairs will not report the Everett bill for the extension of the time limit allowed the Chinese to register, until next Thursday. Some members of the committee who favor the Everett bill, as modified by the cub-committee, declare that Geary, in fighting the meas ure, is actuated principally by the fear that if the bill were passed the matter would again be carried into the Btipreine court, and that tbe former decision sus taining the constitutionality of the Geary law would be reversed. They Bay if a majority of the supreme court is now against tbe constitutionality of the Geary law, that fact can be readily determined without testing it in proceedings to de termine the constitutionality of an act •applementmg the Geary act. They say aay Chinese whom tbe United Statea (sui decide under the Geary act subject to deportation, can appeal to the su preme court on a writ of habeas corpus, if any new question of law is involved in tbe appeal, and force the court to render another decision.

Tho Affections of the Arab. An Arab—meaning a. tent dweller, for in an equine senso tho town dweller is no Arab—loves first and abovo all his horse. No noed to recite the oft sung affection ho will lavish upon him. Next he loves his firearm. This, poetically speaking, ought to bo a six foot, gold in laid, muzzlo loading horror of a match lock, which would kick any man but an Arab flat on his back at every shot, but actually, in Algeria or Tunis, when he lives near a city, it is rather more apt to bo a modern English breechloader. Yon must fly from tho busy haunts of men to find the matchlock. Next to his gun he loves his oldest son, Last comes his wifo or one of his wives. Daughters don't even count. I mean the Arab scarcely takes tho trouble to count them, unless in so far as they cau minis ter to his comfort, diototic or otherwise. Until some neighbor comes along and proposes to marry—in other words, to make a still worse slave of ono of them, she is only a chattel, a soulless thing. And yet sho is said to bo a pretty, amia ablo, helpful being—said to be, for no ono by any hap ever chanties to cast his eyes on one worth seeing.

Buenos Ayres, Sept. 19.—1t is re ported that tbe rebel fleet lias succeed ed in forcing a passage past the forts at Rio, with the intention of blockading Santoa, and, if necessary, shelling it. Provisions at Rio are becoming very scarce. The high prices charged for all the necessaries of life are causing much Buffering among the poorer classes. On the other hand, several ships loaded with cattle are announced to be leaving the La Plata for the use of the insur gents. If the rebels capture Santos, tho railroad to Rio would enable them to attack tbat city in the rear and on the land Bide. Thia ia believed to be the object of the revolutionary leaders. No News From Thompson. Washington, Sept. 19.—1t ia now four days since the state department baa re ceived a line of information from Minis ter Thompson at Rio Janeiro. It ia be lieved by some officials that the insurg ents have control of all tbe telegraph lines leading from the Brazilian capital. All are of the opinion that affairs are in very serious shape and that the over throw of the existing government is very probable. WAS NOAH BURIED TWICET Two Graves of the Patriarch. One of Which Is Slxtr-fonr Feet Long. In a former article I gave a penrricture of the "tomb of Noah" as it now exists near the ruins of au old fortress at Nakhtchevan, Armenia. According to Eastwick's "Three Years In the East," this old Armenian tomb is annually vis ited by thousands of pilgrims of all faiths, including Mohammedans and Turcomans, who moke wearisome jour neys of hundreds of miles in order to do reverence to our common ancestor. But, like all other relics which have the be ginning of their hi;,tory in tradition, this supposed tomb or the builder of tho ark, half hidden among tho hoary ruins on the Armenian plains, has a rival stand ing almost within the shadows of the cedars of Lebanon. Henniker's "Palestine In ISoo'' says: About two miles east of Zakhle is the village of Kerak, not far from which, on the last declivity of Lebanon, there is a round mosque. This is erected over still older relics which are held in great rev erence by Moslems and Christians alike, it being the reputed tomb of Noah the Patriarch. The structure is now a part of an ancient aqueduct and m regarded by superstitious thousands as being a place of eminent sanctity. Walls have been built around it, and at certain sea sons of the year the Maronites in particu lar inako long pilgrimages to visit it. In hia old age, so tradition says, Noah entreated God as a particular favor that he might be allowed to end hi 3 days in the shade of the'boautiful cedars of Leb anon, and there to preparo his place of burial. The patriarch's prayers were granted, but shortly beforo his death he committed somo transgression, and to punish him God cut off a part of the tomb which had been constructed to re ceive the patriarch's remains. This being the case, it is clear that Noah could not be buried at full length, but was laid to rest with hia 1 *s doubled up under his thighs, so ac to make the remains conform with the size of the di minished tomb. But, taking everything into consideration, he must have been a giant of giants, for the tomb, even in its curtailed slfcte, is 04 feet long.—St. Louis Republic. Delayed the Train to Look For Teeth. Several years ago, while temporarily in chargo of a division on one of the southern trunk lines, an incident came under my observation which for oddity seemed worthy of notice outside of the regular offico record. We were han dling an unusually large amount of freight, and, as is the custom cases, were watching delays to trains very closely, calling to account all of fenders who could not show a good ex cuse. On going to the telegraph office one evening to look over the situation the dispatcher on duty called my atten tion to a delay of 40 minutes to a freight train, for which the conducto/had sent a message report reading, "Delayed looking for fireman's teeth." As this seemed to be a piece of levity, I ordered him to report to tho office on arrival. This ho did, and to my sur prise he confirmed tho telegraphic report. It seemed that tho fireman had just pur chased a new set of "store troth," and not being accustomo.l to them had lost the upper plate while standing in the "gangway" getting a breath of air. Ho promptly told the engineer, who stopped the train, and tho whole crew wont back with lanterns to look for tho property. It was found and restored to the owner, and the train then proceeded. The mas tor mechanic waa instructed to direct tho fireman to keep his mouth closed while on duty, and the papers were duly filed in the records, where they can still bo found. I*ave seen many excuses for delays, but no other cases liko this.— Pittsburg Post, - - HIGH-ROLLERS IN TROUBLE. The Police Raid a Bagnio on Brooklyn Height!. Officers Carney and Smith raided a house of ill-fame on Brooklyn Heights, about 1 o'clock this morning, and brought to the police station seven tack les*, females and two young bloods, all in a more or less hilarious condi tion. For some time past the quiet of the pioas and respectable neighborhood across the river had been disturbed by the orgies carried on nightly in the raided establishment. Complaints about the place becoming rather frequent, the police at last de cided to close it out. When the "cop pers" closed in on the building last night, several of the male inmates jumped out of the windows, but all the rest were captured. One of the young men who belongs to a highly respectable family begged hard not to be taken to the station, stating that he wonld rather lose a thousand dollars than be exposed in such company, but the officers were obdurate and he was brought along and locked np with the rest. His appearance in the police court this morning will oreate a sensation among the high-rollers. The Arab's Donkey. One sees Arabs coining into Constan tinople with a donkey load of wood, which they sell for 8 francs. They have couiu 25 miles with it, sell it, and next day ride the donkey back. As a meal costs them but 2 cents, the wood nothing, and the donkey does all the work, what seems a small profit is really a good one. And who is it that earns it? All saddle beasts in the east go what our Anglomaniacs cn.ll "artificial" gaits; in fact, three-fourths of all the animals in the world do so. Mules which are ridden always "sidle" or amble, all don keys running-walk, rack or amble. But nowhere except in our southern 6tates have these gaits been studied as an art, improved on and bred from.—Colonel T. A. Dodge in Harpers. Marrying For Pity. A fair maiden who had weathered the blasts of some 85 summers was in formed by a booby that unless she mar ried him he would blow the top of his head off. It's a pity she didn't let him do it. Heads of that kind ought to be blown off every time. That is what they are for. But Desdemona pitied Othello, and this fair maiden pitied her lover and went to the parson's with him. That was only a month ago, and now if he wants to kill himself she will present him with the best silver mounted pistol in tho market. Marriage is a solemn contract, and it is better to think twice before signing it. —New York Telegram. All Right. Two men became engaged in a fight in the street. Instantly tbeir hats went off and rolled in the dust. One of the men was entirely bald, and the other had a thick head of hair. The bald man seized the other by the hair and began to drag him about. "Stop him!" cried a bystander. "Why should yon stop him?" asked another. "He's only practicing the gold en rule." "The golden rule? What do yon mean?" "Why, he's doing to the other man what he wishes to goodness the other man might be able to do to hlmt"— Youth's CouipttniOn. Anticipatory. Lady of the Iljuse—Aren't you asham ed of yourself—a great, strong man like you to be idling your time away? Transient Individual—Alt, mum, bnt you forget the business depression. Lady of the House—Bother the busi ness depression 1 To my knowledge yon haven't done a stroke of work for years. Transient Individual—Of course. I was merely anticipating the panic, you know —getting used to loafing so I shouldn't mind it when there was no work to be had.—Boston Transcript. Good Enough For a Beast. A droll little story is told of Mr. W. S. Gilbert. He put up his horse one day at a small country inn, on the signboard of which was painted conspicuously the notice, "Entertainment for man and beast." When his lunch was brought, he looked dissatisfied, and surprised the waiter by saying, ' This is all very well so far, bnt where is the entertainment for the mart?" — Ifmitrm Tit-Bit's. BACKED VP by a cash offer —the statements that are made by the proprietors of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy. They say that their medicine -will ciyre, per fectly and permanently, the worst case of Chronic Catarrh in the Head—that not only Catarrh itself, but all the troubles that come from it, and every thing catarrhal in its nature, are cured by the mild, sooth ing, cleansing and healing properties of their remedy. They can't say any more. Prob ably every medicine for Catarrh claims as much. But it's one thing to promise a cure—it's a very differ ent thing to perform it. The propri etors of Dr. Sage's Remedy want to prove that they mean what they say. So thoy make this offer: If they can't cure your Catarrh, no matter how bad your case or of how long standing, they'll pay you $500 in cash. You're sure of the money or a cure. Isn't such a medicine worth trying? The seat of sick headache is not in the brain. Regulate the stomach and you cure it. Dr. Pierces Pellets are the Little Regulators.
