Repu"' can administration. It was now Httpoptud to refer such a resolution to tty committee on finance and it was .lain that tbe interest of the Democratic party wonld be best subserved by its retnaimug there. The resolution was adopted. The repeal bill was taken up. Hoar read an editorial from the Peoria, 111., Journal, relative to the controversy ac to tbe part taken by Ernest Seyd of England in the legislation of 1873. The Journal printed what purported to be a quotation from Hooper's speech in tbe house to contradict a letter of Seyd's eon. In tbis quotation tbe words, re ferring to Seyd, "who is now here," are attributed to hooper. Hoar had that part, of Hooper's speech read from the Congressional Rscord in which, tbe worde "wbo is now here" did not appear. "Theee words," said Hoar, "are a de liberate, audacious, unscrupulous, in famous forgery." Cullom of Illinois said he knew the editor of the Peoria Journal, Mr. Barnes, and while he wae astonished at the mis quotation, he was sure Barnes was not personally responsible for the forgery in the sense of having committed or been cognizant of it. Teller also knew Barnes and felt sure he would be guilty of no improper con duct in connection with the statement. The debate continued more than an hour, then Peffer addressd tbe senate. He read tbe presidents letter to Governor Northen of Georgia and said that it did not dissipate the confusion in tbe public mind ac to the president's real opinion on monetary questions. He might be a monometalist; he might be a bimetal list, but there was nothing to show in tbe letter what kind of a metallist be was. "Whenever.the administration is rep resented by friends upon tbe floor," de clared Peffer, "ready to accept the pend ing amendment or come other amend ment which will bring about tbe restor ation of the law of 1837, tbey can pass the repeal bill in 25 minutes." At 6:10 Harris moved an executive session, after which the eenate ad journed. EXCITED STATESMEN. The Lie Passed Batwmn Members or tha Home. Washington, Sept. 28.— The lie passed •t the opening of the session of the house _.tlue mnjnjrjg .between.Morse of.Massa chasetts and Fithian of Illinois. Morse attempted to justify his course in fili bustering yesterday and charged Fithian with being solely responsible for the re fusal of tbe house to permit him to print in the Record newspaper extracts attacking Pension Commissioner Loch ren. Fithian, replying, said Morse had endeavored to induce bim (Fithian) to withdraw hia objection to the printing, by coming to him and intimating that be (Morse) would, ac a member of the committee on buildings and grounds, help Fithian to get through any public building bill in which he might be in terested. "That's absolutely false," shouted Morse, striding menacingly toward Fithian. "If the gentleman from Massachu setts denies the statement, I have proof that will satisfy any member of the house. My colleague Goldsier heard the conversation," retorted Fithian. Morse backed against the rails and re plied meekly: "What tbe gentleman says has the color of truth" [laughter], bnt the construction he placed on it is unqualifiedly false." "If tbe gentleman denies my state ment," yelled Fithian, shaking his fiat angrily at Morse, "he will be fully lying himself." The house was then in an uproar. The speaker pounded vigorously for order, declaring both out of order. This closed the incident. The debate on the bill to repeal the federal election laws was resumed. Gen. John C. Black, of Illinois, ex commissioner of pensions, spoke in support of tbe bill—his maiden Bpeech in tne house. He was accorded the closest attention. He said he would not discuss tbe question from a consti tutional point of view, but would try to chow his reasons for favoring repeal. These laws were enacted in 1865. The most that could be said for them was tbat they were designed to operate un der circumstances which no longer existed. It was lullu'wing a fierce de moralizing struggle; the system was the child of force, hatred and dread of men long arrayed on sectional lines against each other. If ever efficient, their time was gone. The thing needed now is the elevation of the franchise. If men are not fit to exercise this right, they ehould be deprived of the privilege. He did not mean ignorance of books, but of the genius of American institutions. Corrupt, venal voters con stitute a danger to the country. Tbe election laws do not meet and were not designed to meet this condition. Their purpose was to protect and elevate an unfortunate race by supporting tbem with the strong arm of the government. They appealed to force, not reason, and intensified the race issue. He would vote any amount of tax money and any force to uphold the dignity of the gov ernment and tbe rights of its citizens, but these laws did neither. Johnson, of North Dakota, arrainged the Democratic party in a most bitter manner. Breckenridge, the silver-tongued Ken tucky orator followed. Ho hurled de fiance at the Indianian. "If the gentle man is a fair type," he Baid, "of the people of his district, then they cannot be criticised ior sending here a man who denounces as infamous the majority of the people of this country. I have a profound pity for a man who could make euch a speech, who does not believe his countrymen can he trusted. With this I dismiss him from my mind and from my speech." "There are other thirgs," shouted Johnson, "which the gentleman from Kentucky, would like to dismiss." At this direct allusion to the famous Pollard-Breckinridge breach of promise suit, some Republicans laughed, but their laughter wbb drowned by a storm of Democratic hißses. "Such a remark," replied Breckinridge bitterly, "only shows that the gentleman has no sense of the propriety and decency of public life." Breckinridge's speech was devoted largely to the constitutional phase of the question. At the conclusion of Breckinridge's speech the house adjourned. TALK OF COMPROMISE. Senators Again Indulge In the Vain De lusions of Hope. Washington, Sept. 28. —There waa more talk of a silver compromise about the senate today,than was heard for a week. A prominent Republican senator waß engaged the greater part of the day in trying to got the senators to agree to a proposition for the purchase and coin age of J3.000.000 Bilver per month for the next three years, but met with rrsny obstacles. The especial supporters of the president asserted that he would accept no amendment -whatever, and tbe silver senators made objection tbat to place a limit on the purchase at a time within Cleveland's administration would be simply to postpone the blow, and it might almost sts well fall now. Senator Faulkner was also engaged in canvassing his proposition, bnt with no better result than in the case of the Re publican senator. Nothing was accom plished In any direction but the events of yesterday and today caused many more senators than usua'S to assert today that a compromise wae the only way out of the present entanglement. SILVER MEN ELATED. A Whole Day in the Senate to Be De- voted to Kxeentlve Business. Washington, Sept. 28.—1n executive session this evening, after come debate, Voorhees reluctantly agreed to devote all of next Thursday to tbe executive session, at which appointments in oppo sition to the home rule plank of the Democratic platform, against which there have been such strenuous objec tions, will be considered. This agree ment pleases tho silver men immensely, as tbey regard it as another point gained by tbem. If a quorum ia present Thurs day, it is probable these appointments will be favorably acted upon by a strict ly party vote. Tin Plate Statistics. Washington, Sept. 28.—The report of the special agent on the production of tin and terae plates for the qnarter ended June 30th, shows an aggregate output of pounds, of which slightly more than 49 per cent was from | American block plate. The manufac- I tnre during the fiscal year 1891 aggre gated 13,040,719 pounds of which 9,296, -533 was from American plate. Daring the fiscat year 1893, there were 89,919, -202 pounds manufactured of which 43, -599,724 was from American plate. The report on imports and exports of plates indicates that the entire consumption of the United States during the fiscal year 1893, was 720,000,000 pounds, of which more than 15 per cent waa of American manufacture. A New Mail Service. Washington, Sept. 28.—The postoffice department hae accepted the offer of the Npr.th American to carry the mails for Mexico and Central America. The new arrangement is not a contract, but the designation of tbe company as the official mail carrier un der the general laws. According to the offer, the steamers will carry the mails once in 20 days to thoee ports at which they are compelled to stop by the pro visions of the company's contract with the Central American states, leaving tbe postmaster-general to fix tbe compensa tion. A lERBIBLK PANIC. Many Persons Trampled to Death In a Jewish Church In Poland. Wabsaw, Sept. 28.—A false alarm of fire was given today in a synagogue at Kalwarya, near Suwalki. The building was crowded with men and women at worship. After a struggle of 10 minutes, as no fire appeared, they became calmer. Nine dead bodies were found near tbe exit, and 20 persons lay unconscious and bleeding where they bad been trampled. Fully 100 persons were injured in the rush. Fifteen are likely to die.

New Yobk, Sept. 28.—Over 12,000 people went to Gnttenberg today to Bee tbe match race ween Tammany and Lamplighter, the greatest 3-year-old racers of the year, for a pnree of $5000 and a side bet of $2600. The horses were in the best of form and the track as fast as any in America. Lamplighter was ridden by Taral and Tammany by Garrison. Lamplighter led by a length and a half all the way until the turn of the oval, less than half a mile from home, was reached. There Garrison moved Tammany, up until his head was at Lamplighter's tail. Taral did not urge his colt until the stretch was entered and he saw Garrison after him in dead earnest, swinging around the wide turn, Garrison leaned over his colt's neck and Tammany began to move faster. With in 10 lengths Tammany was head and head with his rival. Faral used whip and spur but it was no use. Garrieon also out Tammany ruthlessly though there was no occasion to do so. Marcus Daly's great colt easily went to the front and finished three lengths ahead of Lamplighter. Enthusiasm was not so great as it would have been had Lamp lighter won, but Garrison was carried to the jockey's room in a floral horse shoe by his admirers. Tammany clearly proved bis superiority over Lamplighter in the race.

THE UNEMPLOYED Row to Solve tha Tramp y non tion and Biuploy tha Worthy. Editors Herald :—Your recent edit orial regarding the laboring man as con tradistinguished from the "professional tramp," ia prima facie evidence of your appreciation of tbe true laboring man, and therefore the basis of my presump tion in offering for publication in the valued columns ot the Hbrm.d tbe fol lowing, viz: At all times there are thousands of unemployed laboring men scattered throughout this country, and during periods of general business de pression tbis army of non-producing consumers acquire vast and alarming proportions. It is safe to assume, however, that the great majority of such men are honest, capable aud willing toilers, and it is equally fair to assert that not an incon siderable per cent of tbe same are chronic or professional tramps and crim inals. Notwithstanding, when canvassing tbe Country in pursuit of employment, whether in fact or only ostensibly, these people are treated on an equality, and not infrequently the innocent ia sus pected and incarcerated as a criminal; the tendency of which is to add recruits to the actual criminal list. These momentous considerations, the financial loss to the country resulting from the enforced idleness of the former class, and tbe appalling but inevitable deprivation and suffering on their part and that of their dependents; the crim inal acts and its consequences of the lat ter class present a condition of public concern not second in importance to other questions which are, and for many years have been, prominent in our na tional legislative halls. When there was plenty of public land subject to entry it absorbed a great por tion of tbe willing and ambitious labor ing men of tbe country, but, by a lavish, if not to say criminal procesa of legisla tion, this grand inheritance is denied tbe present and future generations. We have, however, a vast area of desert land susceptible not only to reclamation, but capable, nnder proper and possible manifestations, of being among the most productive and profit able in the nation. Let congress create a permanent burSau of internal improvements, the duties of which shall be to direct the reclamation of said land, construct, im prove and keep in repair levees, high ways and public parks. To employ, in the proeecntion oi ench work, every laboring man who makes application for worK, Board and lodging should be provided all men thus employed, and only nom inal wages in addition thereto. The object, so far as it relates to labor ing men, should be to provide an oppor tunity for self-support on tbe part of such, and only such, as cannot find work elsewhere; and hence the wages should be-so-low as to-not attract men" from other fields of employment. Then, when labor is in special de mand, for instance, for harvesting, fruit and hop picking, etc., etc, those need ing such could, by making application to said bureau, readily obtain them on short notice. Much a system would a'so mark the line between the willing laboring man and the chronic tramp. The law should also provide that, after the establishment of this enterprise, all men found "tramping" should be deemed criminals, and incarcerated at hard labor. The operation of this system would not only provide employment for the otherwise nnemployed labor of the country, and the inestimable comfort re sulting therefrom, the curtailing of the criminal list, the prevention of crime, and the sure punishment of thia class of criminals, but would add to the ma terial prosperity of the country as a whole by saving millions of dollars in property now annually destroyed as a result of the present condition of our levees, and provide desirable and profit able homes for millions of our citizens by the reclamation of the deeert lands. It would be a question of only a few years when the taxes accruing to the general government from property thus saved, and that reclaimed, would more than equal the coat of establishing and maintaining such an enterprise. The time for its inauguration can be no more opportune than now. The number of unemployed men is perhaps unprecedented in tbe hiatory of thia country and the approach of winter near at hand, and unlese provision be made for their self-support they will neceanarily become a public charge. The neceaeary material for use in tbe work was never cheaper than now and provisions for boarding the men are also remarkably cheap. Winter ia the best time for operating on the desert. Congress ia now in session and if it acts promptly much suffering, and crime would be averted. W. A.JVabcoe. 209 North Grund avenue, j' National League Baset all. . Pittsbubo, Sept.

Prospecting for gold has received a great impetus through recent events which have thrown so many men out of employment. Not only have silver min ers and smelter men gone to prospecting, but mechanics and laborers who have had mining experienco in former years now find their knowledge of minerals of utility in the change of occupation forced upon them by the closing down of mills a:id factories. Whatever else may be the result of the additional labor devoted to gold prospecting, it is sure to be the means of the discovery of valuable gold leads and the enrichment of individual prospectors. As an evidence that old fields supposed to have been thoroughly explored are yet capable of further development, there were yesterday shown samples of ore and assay of some taken from Boul der county in tho old Jimtown district which showed fine free gold on 20 differ ent specimens and gave an average assay from average samples of over $50 per ton. Tho owners of this property aro poor men without means necessary to get out their ore and have applied to Labor Commissioner Brentlinger of this state in the hope that he might know some ono willing to buy an interest and advance money enough to enable them to get their first carload of ore on the miriret. —Colnrrido Sun.

Boatan to Be Given a Grand Ball Previous to Their Departure- Mall Ad ▼loss from Samoa. By tbe Associated Press. Honolulu, Sept. 31, via San Francisco Sept. 28.— (Per steamship Mariposa.)— The reports which arrived by the last steamer to the effect that the United States would establish a protectorate over Hawaii and that an election would be held, created great excitement here. The American colony announced that they would not be coerced into any farce of an election which would give the native element control over the foreigners. The pnblic here are pleased with the appointment of Minister Mills, but the annexationists criticise the appoint ment of Ellis Mills as consul-general and the provisional government has been considering the advisability oi request ing the United States to recall Mills' appointment. He is objected to on ac count of the preference to the Royalist cause which be displayed while here as Mr. Blount's secretary. The annexa tionists say if Mills be sent here he will be mercilessly snubbed. An official dispatch received from Washington states that the Hawaiian legation there has been assured by Blount and Senator Morgan that some action favorable to annexation will be taken by the United States. A leper outlaw murdered his wife last week and resisted the officers sent to arrest him. Troops were called out but beofre tbey arrived the leper was killed by the police. Robert Louis "SteVdMon arrived here yesterday from Samoa on the Mariposa, lie will remain here a week and pro ceed to San Francisco on the next steam er. He says there is now peace in Samoa, but that tbe withdrawal of the British man-of-war may precipitate trouble. Stevenson thinks tbe Ger mane are not capable of maintaining peace in Samoa, and that the presence of an American man-of-war there is very desirable. Stevenson says he is now engaged on several Dew h tones. Tbe fatmous $1,000,000 suit of George MacFarlane against Claus Sprecketottas been decided. Tbe court denies Mac- Farlane an accounting, but allows-him a portion of the land and improvements of an estate capitalized at $10,000,000, but actually worth about $2,000,000. The United States steamship Boston will leave here September 26th for San Francisco. She has been here over a year and a grand ball will be tendered her officers by the provisional govern ment and Annexation club. The affair will be a national demonstration in favor of annexation. Tbe sugar planters have refused to pay the bonus of $12 a head for Japanese labor, demanded by tbat government. AFFAIRS IN SAMOA. Peace Beatored Bat Trouble Liable to Break Hot Again. Apia. Samoa, Sept. 5, via San Fran cisco, Sept. 28 (per the ateamer Mari poaa).—The situation here ia peaceful but uneettled. There are mutter ings which herald the approach of fresh trouble. With the exception of Mataafa'a deportation, nothing bas been done toward tbe settlement of affaire here. Trade and commerce are dead and no money is In circulation, except tbat spent by the sailors on the warships here. A powerful chief in tbe Safata dis trict has had his name and lands taken from him because be did not actively support tbe king daring tbe late troubles. Tbe chief threatens to resist the judgment of the courts by force and trouble may grow out of tbis incident. 1 On August 23d the English warship Rapid arrived, and her commander, Sir Henry Bart, paid an official viait to the king, and congratulated him on the settlement of the lata rebellion. Tbe Rapid baa left for Fiji, bnt tbe British ship Ketoomba and tbe German vessels Speeber and Buz zard are still here. An epidemic of measles is causing great mortality among the nativea of the Tonga group. Tbe disease haa just started in Samoa. Tbe Baaeball Season. The remarkable interest in baseball this year is causing universal comment. In spite of the fact that tho financial condition of the country is in a deplor able state, the attendance at the ball games increases rather than diminishes. It may be that our weary merchants, politicians, doctors, lawyers, schoolboys and clerks rush to the games to get away from business, mental or school worry. As a money broker said yester day, the only places where cash seems plentiful are at the ball games and the dry goods stores. Most of the clubs in the major and minor leagues will make money this year, and the chances are that there will be no changes in the cir cuit next season. So it looks as if the 12 club league had come to stay for an other year at least.—New York Tribune A Great Saving. The duplex and quadruple! systems of telegraphy begun by Mr. Edison in 1860 and finished after six years of work have saved in America alone the enor mous sum of $15,000,000. By the duplex system two currents of different degrees of strength were sent over the same wire in the same direction, thus doubling its efficiency, while the quadruple! ar rangement became possible when it was discovered that these two currents could be sent in opposite directions at the same time, thus enabling one wire to transmit four simultaneous messages.
