papers, seems to me most astounding." Stewart reiterated that the charge had been made in the papers. "Will the senator name a single senator whom he knows or believes to have been influenced by patronage by the president?" asked Palmer. •'Does the senator want me to make • personal matter oi this and dwindle this down in this way?" asked Senator Stewart, and then, as if disgusted, ex claimed: "Oh, pshaw!" and asked Palmer if he would vote for a resolution authorizing an investigation of the question. Palmer said he would when Stewart Would make charges against any senator or member of the house. *"I do not want to confine it to one senator or member," said Stewart, amid laughter. "Investigate if yon dare." "I will," replied Palmer; "whenever the senator brings forward charges •gainst any individual in tbe senate I Will vote for an investigation." "When I make a criminal charge •gainst • particular individual," said Stewart, contemptuously, "the senator from Illinois will allow it to be investi gated, bnt be will not protect the honor of Mb executive in denying these whole sale charges. He wants to make a criminal charge against a senator." THE EXAMINER'S ARTICLE. Stewart then read a long article from the San Francisco Examiner comment ing upon the course of the president. Stewart closed his speech with a pas sionate indictment of England as a monster that stalks throngh the country breaking down the interests of seven states and territories; that claimed direct legislation of congress and whose voice had been heard last week on the east front of the capitol rebuking the senate. MORGAN MAKES AN EXPLANATION. Morgan rose to a personal explanation, referring to an article in the New York Times today, tbat no honorable Demo crat could listen to that part of Senator Stewart's speech criticising tbe presi dent and continue to act with him in obstruction to repeal. "Unless, as we fear," tbe article continues, "is the case with Senator Morgan, he is so im placable and unreasonable an enemy of tbe president tbat he subordinates the highest question of privilege and public interest to the gratification of public revenge." Morgan said he was very happy to state that between the presi dent and himself there existed the most cordial personal relations. They had always existed and he hoped they ever would. He thought he differed with him upon no question vital to the coun try or to the Democratic party. VOORHEES DEFENDS THE PRESIDENT. Voorhees then rose and said: "I am very glad to hoar the remarks of tbe sen ator from Alabama in regard to the as sault made npon the president of the United States ior the last two days. I desire simply to account for the total silence on this side of the chamber by stating that it has not been thought necessary to say a single word in defense of Orover Cleveland. I have reason to believe that on the other side of the chamber and all over the country his defense has been fully made by the American people themselves. What ever the senator from Nevada (Stewart) may have found of fault in his career, the American people have not seen it in that way. Whatever of criticism the senator from Nevada may have indulged in, the American people have not shared that criticism of him. Nobody of perfect human nature is, the loftiest characters are not infallible, bnt I ven ture to Bay in American history tbe career of Grover Cleveland, hie character, hia achievements, his honor, hie patriotism and his ability will stand with tbe fore most, in spite of all tbe assaults that may be made. Whetber we differ from him or agree with him, nobody fails to recog nize his stalwart and powerful character, both of mind and high integrity. I hope, Mr. President, this littie tribute may be taken as a sufficient account for the fact tbat we will not feel called up on to enter into any defense of the pres ident of the United States, nnless some thing far more important may be charged against him than haa been up to the present time." After a short executive session the senate adjourned. HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. Tucker and Broil as Open the Debate on the Elections Bill. Washington, Sspt. 26. — The two weeks' debate on the bill to repeal the federal election laws opened in the house this morning. The galleries were well filled. An nnnsnal number of negroes waa present, showing their interest in the matter. Tucker of Virginia, the author of the bill, opened for tha Demo crats. He began by pointing out tbat the right to vote was not given by tbe United States, but by tbe constitntion to the states. He held tbat if tbe pow ers of supervisors and deputy marshals permit them to perform acts not granted in the constitution, then the law tbat creates them is unconstitutional. The states alone can make the conditions of suffrage; that being the case the United States conld not step in and make con ditions. It involved the power oi the federal government to destroy the suf frage in the states. Tucxer then proceeded to pay his re spects to John I. Davenport, whose atrocities, be said, were more infamons than those oi the duke of Aloa. "The repeal of these laws," said Tucker, in conclusion, "will wipe away statutes that have caused clashing between the federal government and the states for 30 years." "I belong to a party tbat is not sec tional," said Tucker. "You," he added, addressing the Republicans, "have lived on sectionalism. You have violated tbe pledges of your fathers, 'over-ridden the conetitution,' denied tbe right of habeas corpus, and in a thousand ways showed yourselves unworthy of public confi dence. Therefore, ou November 6th last, yo: were overthrown, and we are now here to undo those things which you did in the arrogance of your power." Johnson of North Dakota, in charge of the debate for the Republican aide, pre sented the minority report of the com mittee as embodying his views. Dolliver of lowa waa to reply to Tuck er, but sudden illness prevented, and Broeius of Fenneylvania waa selected to take hie place. He sopealed, he said, to patriotism, not partuVißhip. "Author ity," he continued, ' 'c obtained either by force, lot or consenA Oonaent is the only manner in which authority ie ac quired under thia government. Suffrage is the mode of expressing consent. After tbe war conditions arose that were a menace to tbe liberties of a weak race. Those in tbe south who had pow er took and held it against the weak. We had to protect those whom we had seen fignt loyally and gallantly for freedom. The act'paeßed in 1865, authorizing tbe army and navy to keep peace at tbe polls, was more drastic then the present laws and was endorsed tty some oi tne most illustrious men who ever honorea the Democratic party by their service. The Democrats claim that the power ot the federal govern ment should not be exercised because it may irritate statss to deeda of violence. Shame! You intend that tbe political power of tbe negro among the 'white men on this continent shall cease; that the constitutional rights of one and a half millions of people shall be de stroyed." No one else being ready to proceed with the debate, a motion to adjourn was made, pending which Delegate Flynn's Oklahoma resolution calling for information from the war department regarding the action of the military when the Cherokee strip was opened, waa reported back to the honae. Dele gate Flynn got tbe floor and eaid he proposed in tbe near future to ask for the passage of a resolution to investi gate the matter from tbe time when the Cherokees were allotted lands down to tne present time. The point of no quorum was raised, and the house adjourned. A Bill to Admit New Mexico.

Told of the t.ntn J. C. Breckinridge. A good story of General John C, Breckinridge is said to have been told by himself, with evident relish, not long be fore his death. In talking to some friends about tho many kindnesses which had been shown him by his people and tho pleasant things which had been said to him, ho remarked that he valued as highly as any compliment he had ever received one which an old Kentucky farmer paid him during the war, which had come to his ears only a short time before. It was the custom in war time, as it haa always been at all times, for the country peoplo to come into the county town on Saturday afternoon to exchange news gathered during tho week. At ono of these gatherings in a store in Richmond, Ky., just after tho battle of Chickauiauga, ono of the men said he had hoard some grand news. Upon be ing pressed to tell it he said gravely: "I did hear that thar has been a most powerful fight down in Tennessee, and they says that for a long time it went mighty agin our folk 3, but that then Mr. Breckinridge coiuo forrard and asked tho privilege of tho field for just 15 min utes, and they do say that he slew 1)0.000!" Which statement was received with duo respect by the assembled company, although it appeared to occasion a alight ripple of surprise, much to the narrator's eatisfactiou.—Youth's Companion. Charles Kecue's Anecdotes. Tho anecdotes of Charles Kecne, the famous Punch artist, picked up ou his own account, aro so crisp and fresh that to quoto them is enough to indicato the character of the discoverer. Thus he wrote: "Got a story today of a British farmer en board a steamer, suffering a good deal from the rolling, buying to a friend: 'This capt'n don't understand his busi ness. Dang it, why don't ho keep in the furrows?'" Audcjain: '"I heard a story of a well brought up child, who was ssen to secretly purloin and pocket an orange from tho laid-ont dinner table, but was afterward soon to enter tho empty room and secretly again return it to tho dish aud triumphantly oxclnim, 'Sold again, Satanl'" And: "A story last night of an Aherdouiun, who, mak ing a inoming call, was asked if he 'wud tako a dram.' He soberly declined. ' 'Twas too airly the day;' besides, hod had a gill already."—London Athen ueum. Burned For the Insurance.

It is believed the fire was incendiary. Expensive Experiments. It cost the people of the United States about $20,000 in a couple of hours tha other day to settle in the minds of tho officers of tho ordnance bureau whether some armor plates made by the Carnegie) and Bethlohom steel works respectively were as good as they ought to be. It was found that they were, and what that means can be imagined when one of the plates was 17 inches thick, weighed 31$ tons, nnd was attacked by shell* weighing 850 pounds each, the lest ones fired from a 12 inoh gun at a distance of only 810 feet, striking it with the force needed to move a inaas of 21,900 tons, or 48,000,000 pounds, through a foot of space. The projectile went through. Wo take it that that did not surprise) even the experts, who are used to think ing about those inconceivable masses nnd velocities. Bat what did snrpriso them was that the hole it made was) nearly as clean as if it had been drilled, and that not a crack appeared about its edges. Though this particular projec tile was lost—having been deflected anrl fallen into the Potomac—the other pro jectiles which ponetrated the same plate were found in perfect condition and fit to be used again. That seem almost more murvelous than tho perfection of tho plate. Meanwhile the people of New York muy take some satisfaction in knowing that down at Sandy Hook the war de partment has just mounted a gun that will throw a 1,000 pound projectile and make a hole in the heaviest armorclad ship now afloat at a distance of sixi miles. If wo must spend money on what i wo hope are purely peaceful experiments, it is a comfort to know what we get for it.—Harper's Weekly, Illustrated Journalism In England. A countryman who has been endeavor*, ing to obtain some definite ideas about tho royal wedding functions from ths> various illustrated papers applies to ma for help and enlightenment. His be-' wilderment is natural. He finds in the first place that we seem to have a new queen reigning over us, for her majesty'! j features in the illustrated paper bear no resemblance to the authorized portraits) of Queen Victoria. A still more re markable fact is that in the course of the festivities her majesty seems) to have continually changed her habiliments. One of the special artists shows bee with an ermine train. Another repre sents her with no train at all. Another shows her with a crown on her headfe Another appears to have seen her only a few minutes later in a bonnet. One picture represents the queen and her guests all taking lunch at one table. Another places them at different tables. One paper surpasses itself by two views of the route to the railway station, iar each of which the royal couple are pro* vided with a totally different carriage and different horses and attendants. I think I can explain how these discrep ancies arise. Probably some of the spen cial artists dispatched to sketch the wed* ding made their sketches at Henley.-J London Truth. *j Details of Chinese Registration.

Lightning Ruined Her Compasses. A streak of lightning from an almost" cloudless sky struck tha British steam* ship Oxford off Cape Hatteras, while) bound from Santiago de Cuba to Phila-! delphia. The presence of a cargo of iron ore is thought to have served to attract the lightning.
