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
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."
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
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 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.
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
"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
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.

Tho s;ssy noy "Called Down."
It was on an lUinoij Central train. A
gentleman v.-lio loves pope air had open
ed a window and was 6oon mado aware
of tlio fact that bis action had incurred
tho displeasure of a young fellow in sissy
boy bangs nnd the two young ladies who
accompanied him. "Aside" remarks
were made. The yctuig man turned np
his coat collar and pretended he was
cold. The ladies imitated him in all the
smart things he did, but securing no re
lief tho young man with tho sissy bangs
asked tho gentleman who had opened the
■window to close it, which he did prompt
ly. Ho wasn't oven thanked, and the
trio kept on talking about persons who
opened windows on trains, left doors
open, etc.
At Van Baren street Mr. Sissy Bangs
and tho young ladies, who were dressed
in whito, aroso to go. Turning about, the
escort said to the gentleman who had
closed tho window and who had not been
thanked for it:

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
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
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
"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

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,

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

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. The lightning splintered
the vessel's foretruck, and after passing
down into the vessel's hold and cabin,
zigzagged through the decks and disap-!
peared in the water. The compasses were)
rendered entirely useless, the main one
being three points and the others even 1
