THE ARGENTINE TROUBLE. An Exciting Naval Skirmish at Buenos Ayres. Rebel Gunboats Attack the Government Fleet. Tho Assault Repulsed and Insurgent Vessels Captured. Kx-Presldent Peiligrini Taken Prisoner by tbe Revolutionist* and In Banger of Being Shot. Conflicting Keports. By tho Associated Prsss. Bi'knos Ayiiks, Sept. 20.—An exciting skirmish took place today iv the outer roads of thia harbor between some tor pedo boats which have joined the revo lutionists and vessels ol the Argentine fleet. The attack was made by the tor pedo boats, but the loyal men-of-war were prepared for it and not only beat off the insurgent vessels, but later took tbe offensive and captured the rebel boats and crews.

Treasurer Washburn of the Old Colony Road Short in His Accounts. He Used the Funds to Spec- * ulate lv Stocks. Boston, Sept. 26.—At the regular meeting of the stockholders of the Old Colony Railroad company today, a big sensation waa sprung when it waa an nounced that Treaaurer John M. Wash burn had been misappropriating the funds of the company. Washburn, it was said, started several years ago to take the company's money to speculate with. He lost in speculations, and the securities he bought were turned into the company's treasury as caeh, at the price Washburn paid for tbem. Aa they shrunk in value during the past few montha, Washburn took more money, and finally it could no longer be con cealed from the auditors. Last Wed nesday Washburn left hia office, but did not go home, and his family were much worried. He came back next morning in a pitiable condition, Baying he had walked around all night. A doctor was called in and he ordered him to go to bed, where he baa been con fined ever since. A full confession waa made by Waahburn yesterday. He resigned his positio.it as treasurer cf the company, and made an asßeign raent of all hia personal property to the railroad to make up the deficiency as far as possible. The bondsmen of tbe treasurer will also be called upon to assist to make good tbe deficiency, and the Old Colony officials claim tbe defalcation will not effect tbe dividenda on the Btock of the railroad. Waßh bnrn ia 75 years old and has been treas urer of tbe Old Colony road for 30 years, and treasurer of tbe Old Colony steam boat company almost from the time it was started. He waa also treaaurer of the Union Freight line. Whether these concerns will lose anything is impossible yet to Bay. Washburn owns a fine res idence on beacon street. He ia married and haa a daughter and son. There waa a rumor on tbe Btreet today that the amount of his defalcation waa $125,000, but Counsel Benton eaid there waa no authority for any such atatement. A call at the home of Treaaurer Wash burn was without avail. A Biff Lumber Trust.

Stewart 11' news His Attack on the President. Palmer and Voorhees Come to the Res cue or Their Patron Saint—Debate on the Tucker (till Ileguu ln the House. By the Associated Press. Washington, Sept. 26.—When the senate met thia morning tbo repeal men were caught napping by Stewart who observed no quorum and questioned the propriety of the senate proceeding. Harris of Tennessee, an ardent silver man, waa presiding in tbe absence of Vice-President Stevenson, who ia at tending a Democratic meeting in Penn sylvania. The president pro tern, promptly ordered the roll called, al though the journal had not been read. Only thirty-five senators responded, less than a quorum. A stay of proceedings was necessary until members strolled in one by one to a sufficient number to constitute a quorum. Stewart then presented resolutions adopted at a mass meeting held in Cleve land, Ohio, favoring an investigation to ascertain whether senators were inte r ested in national banks, railroads and other special interests favored or fost ered by legislation. Stewart expressed the hope that an investigation would be had and the rumor so prevalent set at rest that national bank stocks had any thing to do with the demctnitization of Bilver. DUBOrS CREATES A SENSATION. Dubois (Rep.') created a sensation by offering tbe following: Whereaß, several sovereign states are without a full representation in thu aqu ate to which they are entitled; be it Resolved, That consideration of legis lation relating to the federal elections laws, taritf aud financial matters, mate rially affecting the partially unrepre sented states, bo postponed in the boii ate until Monday, January 16, 18!) i. to enable the states of Washington. Ma i tana and Wyoming to have the v >i, .->, influence and protection of the ieti.\t«, guaranteed each sovereign state by v-a constitution of the United States. The resolution waa laid on the tablj— yeaa 27, nays 19. The repeal bill was then taken no. Stewart, who waa recognized, said lv would yield to Dubois of Idaho, who had given notice of hia intention to speak today. PiiRKINS MAKES A SPEECH. Duboia yielded to Perkins, who said : "We have been told in clear, courageous tones that all our existing economic troublea flow from a law that viciously operatea upon the affairs of finance and commerce, and we have been further told that the blotting out of the law wiil instantly recall to ua tha recent days of prosperity.* It is absurd rto say our coined silver has cauaed, or ia causing the present lack of confidence. lam a aincere believer in the use and coinage oi both gold and silver, and Ido not think it wise stateamanahip to disparage either by the agency of a force bill. If we commit this country to a gold stand ard alone,* we invisibly increase the bur dene of the mass of our people and un justly enrich a select number or class of investors at the general expense. Re peal tbe Sherman act purchasing clanae • and declare by a legislative enactment the unfaltering purpose of the United Statea to adjust and maintain its cur rency system upon a double standard with an equality between the two units of valuegfttjrf their multiples, then open the mints to the coinage of silver of proved American production;' give our manufacturing and producing interests tbe assurance that the tariff shall not be altered in disregard of their reason able claims or otherwise than with dne regard for the greatest good to the j greatest number, and your contemplated repeal of the objectionable clanae of the Sherman act will have a new force and meaning from Maine to California." STEWART GOES FOR CLEVELAND* At the conclusion of Parkins' speech, Stewart resumed the floor. He rea from a paper an article on the pre dent's alleged rebuke to the sens Palmer (Dem) of Illinois as' whether it was consistent with proper relations between the senat the president to read iv the a af/.e gravtuiharges againßt the execut .•.<,'<>< which he (Stewart) would no be re eponsible. Stewart said it was conaister i for I b j as a senator to defend the eer . In, i%a the press eaid tho president ve'. .k --ing the eeaate and calling sl »nori criminals. "Let his friends dorjy vhut he has used patronage to control legie!? tion," aaid Stewart, "Let them miv.j it clear bow the sentiment of congress has been changed aud how an over whelming majority ia favor of iron c in age, in congress, has,' been changed o a gold monometallist majority." PALMER WANTS TO KNOW, Palmer wantol Stewart to indicate a eicgle instance in wiiicb the premdeut employed patronage to control a senator or membor of the hou9e. "Why, my dear Bir," eaid Senator Stewart in a patronizing way, ' th.se churgee have ueeu made in tiie publio press. They have bei-u bruugnt home here, and before I fndicuta any uue w;lt you deny that patrauage ha» been giveu to those who will support the adminis tration measures?" "If the senator himself, upon hisown responsibility aa a senator," replied, i'wl.M, ~ "ni,, 4ue}%v i» Limifiu vi nitti eort, I will confess if I bel'eve it to De correct, or will deny it; but the idea that the president or bis frvends sre to deny charges made against tiina in the '
