Boutelle Waves the Bloody Shirt With Great Vigor. Springer Compel* Bim to Withdraw an Opprobrious BpHhat—Spirited De bate on th* Repeal Bill In the.Senate. By lhe Associated Press. Washington, Oct. 9.—The decree of tbe Democratic caucus at the honee to night was that the Tucker bill repeal ing every vestige of the federal election aws except one stray statute, ahould be passed tomorrow. It was decided unan imously to pass the Tucker bill aa it stands and have it amended in tbe sen ate. A resolution waa adopted a$ fol lows : Resolved, That it is the sense of thia cancua tbat tbe pending bill should be passed by the house of representatives on tomorrow, and that the Democrats should preaent an unbroken column in ita aupport. ' The caucus of Democratic senators reported to have been held at tbe cap itol Sonday proves to have been only an informal conference of some of the lead ing Democratic anti-repeal senators. The meeting was strictly private and the senators who were preaent decline to divulge the details of the conversa tion. Gentlemen in a position to know say no agreement waa reached, even among the senators present. A canvass of the strength of the opposing forces is said to have been made and to have re sulted in the conclusion that tbere are 21 Democratic senators favorable to re peal and 23 opposed. THE TUCKER BILL. Last Day's Debate on that Celebrated Measure. i Washington, Oct. 9.—ln the house today AUUslch, of Illinois, opened the debate on the election bill with a vigor one defense of the Republican attempt to check Democratic frauds in Chicago and put down the alleged Carter Har rison ring. Doliiver, of lowa, followed in the same strain. He said the repeal oJLUie election laws wonld piece this govern ment in the attitude of disowning tbe men who defended ite life. He made a vigorous attack on Tammany, charging it with levying taxes on the vices of the unfortunates of the city. Boutelle of Maine, after a glowing tribute to New England, made sarcastic allusions to Dr. Everett df Massachu setts, and waa about to read from tbe writing of James Rusßell Lowell, which he said described tbe "doughface" of '61, and was a photograph of the dough face of' 93. Springer of Illinois took exception to applying the epithet of doughface to a member of the house. "It ia an epithet," said Boutelle fiercely, "which can be applied with equal force as well to the gentleman from lilinoieaato the gentleman from Massa chusetts." Springer grew white with rage, and striding fiercely toward Boutelle,.re torted : "I want you to know, air, jou can't apply such an epithet to me." After some further exchanges Boutelle, Btill protesting that tbe expression was not unparliamentary, withdrew it. Continuing, Boutelle said: "Every Democratic speech has demonstrated this to "be a blow at the fundamental principle underlying tbe government. I thought the new generation would join bands with us in building np tbe common country. For 10 days the sheeted ghoeta of tho confederacy have flitted about theee halls and gibbered of the defeated conspiracy. The vice-presi dent of tbe United States has been ac cused of undue sympathy with your struggle to capsize tbe government, yet you do not complain. Not an Union soldier sits about the cabinet table." [Republican applause J Boutelle then went on to take up the records of the Democratic senate com mittees, beginning with tbe president pro tern, Harris, showing that almost without exception tbey served in tbe Confederate army. He reviewed the committees in tbe house, from tbe speaker down to tbe committee on pen sions, showing how they were domin ated by ex-Confederates. Wlison, he said, deposed Springer, from a loyal state, as chairman of the ways and meana committee, and Holman wae de posed by the triumphant Democracy with a Confederate. "I declare here now, on my own responsibility as a rep resentative, tbat no more miacbievont doctrine; no more deadly blow at onr institutions; at the essence of our na tionality ; at onr country, can be dealt than will be the denial of tbe right of this imperial government to cross tho borders of a sovereign state." [Repub lican applause.] "If such doctrines prevail, then the cause for which I and 2,000,000 of my northern countrymen fought when the rebellion was put down wae not victori ous." [Renewed applause.] Mareball of Virginia secured five min utes in which to reply to the fiery utter ances of Boutalle. He appealed to tbe Republicans not to be constantly re minding tbe south tbat it had engaged in an unholy rebellion. Stallings of Alabama and Lockwood of New York followed in advocacy ol the bill. Payne, (Rep.) of New York opposed tbe bill. He detailed at great length tbe "theft" of the senate of New York by the Democrata in 1890, and the part taken by Judge I. R. Mavnard. who was nominated ior supreme judge by the New York Democrats last Friday. "Why do you" demand honest elections," he suited, addressing the Ovsaocratin stria. "when yon nominate for tbe highest judicial position in the Empire state a criminal?" Fitch of New York, chairman of the committee whicb reported the bill, closed the debate for the Democrats. He scored Jobn I. Davenport without restraint, and traced to him the attempt of the Republicans at Albany and Washington to legislate New York into a Republican city, but said the result of this attempt and the performances of Davenport had only been to drive the Republicans entirely from control in New York city. He defended New York against the assaults made upon her government, and in tbe name of tbe city of New . York demanded the passage of tbe pending bill. [Applause.] Tucker rose at tbe close of Fitch's speech to ask leave to print some re marks in reply to an aspersion upon his father, John Randolph Tucker, from Boutelle. Then, at 4:40, tbe house ad journed. SILVER REPEAL. Very Bplrlted Dltennslon In the Senate Yesterday. Washington, Oct. 9.—ln the senate today Harris, of Tennessee, replied in oanstic terms to tbe resolntion of the Memphis Merchants' exchange for tak ing himself and colleague, Mr. Bates, to task for opposing repeal. He believed if tbe whole people of the state of Tennessee were appealed to, they might possibly repudiate the au thority of the exchange to represent them npou tbe subject. With tbe ut most respect and with no feelings of re sentment, he begged to inform those ex changes that tbe threat contained in their resolutione bad no terror for him. Wolcott of Oolorsdo spoke on the reso lutions directing the committee on fin ance to report a bill embodying the declaration of tbe policy contained in tbe Vorbees substitute. Wolcott severely criticised the letter of President Cleveland to Governor Nortben of Georgia, which he charac terized as one of the most remarkable pronnnciamentoß of this generation. He also BDoke of the extraordinary activity of tbe administration in forcing its views on congress, and condemned the act of tbe secretary of the treasury in not purchasing the amount of silver re quired by law. Wolcott said within the last few days tbe worst apprehensions of the friends of silver as to the position of tbe execu tive bad been realized. Tbe president, while congress was in extraordinary ses sion, informed the country that he was astonished at tbe opposition of tbe sen ate to tbe measure which he advocated in bis message. ''Such an utterance is instruaive and offensive," said Wolcott, "and unfitting in respect to tbe relatione which would exist between tbe legisla tive acd executive departments ot tbo government, and it deserves tbe protest ' and rebuke of every man who values the perpetuity of republican institutions." "I appeal to the senator from Indi ana," Wolcott said, "who in his heart I know is opposed to the abandonment of silver as a standard, who holds the key to the whole situation in his hands, and whose single word of approval would bring us relief and save the country from tbe cruel burden of mono metallism, to stand with the people of out* own country and onr own flag, against tltis p-oposed surrender to Brit ish interests. The only hope for silver is by an amena-nent to tbe present bill. There is no hope for an independent measure, even if it should pasß con gress." Vorheee replied at great length and with much feeling. Voorhees said tne constant assevera tion tbat tbe pending bill demonetized silver was not a fact. The pending bill did not take from a single dollar of sil ver money ita monetary value. Voorhees then defended the declara tion that tbe policy of bimetallism is contained in the senate substitute. When tbe Sherman law no longer dis graced tbe statute books he wae ready to act promptly and with all tbe energy and force be could command to carry out tbe declarations made. The resolution went to the calendar, and the repeal bill being taken up, Cockrell (Dem.) of Missouri addressed the senate in opposition to the bill. Cockrell declared tbe belief that Senator Sherman introduced a bill- daring tbe last congress for tbe repeal of the Sher man act, for tbe purpose of influencing tbe action of the Brussels conference, then in session. At any rate, the intro duction of tbe bill was used for tbat pur pore. He criticised tbe action of the Republican secretary of the treasury in redeeming in gold silver certificates. He was surprised tbat the Democratic sec retary of tbe treasury pursued the same course. The discussion having turned to the general subject of tbe redemption of silver certificates, to settle the question Teller offered a resolution, which was agreed to, calling for information as to whether silver dollars or silver coin certificates had been redeemed in or exchanged by tho treasury depart ment for gold or paper, which by law or the practice of the government were re deemable in gold. Without concluding bis epeecb, Cock rell yielded for an executive session. Dolpb (Rep.) of Oregon offered a resolution, which went over, calling upon tbe secretary of state for informa tion at to whether China had requested an extension of time for the registra tion of Chinese laborers in this country, as required by tbe act of May 5, 1892, or had given tbe United States any assur ance if tbe time for such registration ahould be extended, the Chinese labor ers would register and take oat certifi cates. Dolpb said subsequently be un derstood there had been no such request or assurance. After executive session, the senate adjourned.

CENTERBOARD The Latter Is the Better Type of Yacht. That Fact Has Been Amply Demonstrated. The Valkyrie Disastrously Beaten by tbe Vigilant. The American Boat Proved Her Superi ority In Windward Work, Running aud ltaoln*;—The British er* Feel Blue. By tbe Associated Press. Nkw York, Oat. 9.—For the eecond time,, end that more easily than the first, the America's cup defender, the Vigilant, defeated the English repre sentative, the Valkyrie. The second race was sailed today on a triangular course from Sandy Hook nnder con ditions tbat could not have been more gratifying. While tbo victory today waa a magnificent one, only the strong est words of praise can be aaid of tbe gallant but ineffective struggle wbicb the Valkyrie made. She was beaten three miles at the finish, and when the plaudits of tbe thousands rang out to speed tbe conquerer, the bull of the conquered was yet far astern. The yachts got down to the start over half an hour ahead of the time ap pointed for tbe firingof tbe preparatory gun, which was 11:15. and cavorted around to the northward of the line un til the first gun was given. Then they be gan business. It was very pretty play on tbe part of both captains. Tbe Valkyrie was on the line when the gun to send ber over wae sounded. At that time the wind was blowing about 13 miles an hour from tbe southwest by south-half south.. It was of course a dead beat to windward from Sandy Hook lightship into Long Branch on the Jersey shore. The Vigilant got quickly into the, wind, and followed the Valkyrie over the line about two lengths behind. The handler of tbe Vigilant evidently felt he muat gain in the windward work, and very quickly, what he lost in lateral distance. He began to pinch his boat high up in to tbe wind. Her head sails shook aa though there was not enough wind to fill tbem, and ahe dropped behind. Tbe Valkyrie went ahead through the water with great speed. It looked as though she waa skipping right away from the Vigilant, and so she was in a way, bnt the Vigilant'a center-board ptevented that boat from Bagging to leeward, wbereaa tbe keel of the cutter had only a amall part of tbe same-effect. Presently the sails of tbe Vigilant were seen to belly oat, end from that moment tbe American yacht began to win the race. She passed tbe Valkyrie at 12:05, 40 minutes after the start, and never afterwards was headed or touched under'any conditions or circumstances. When tbe Vaikyrie saw her opponent going ahead, she hauled down her big topsail with tbe intention of putting np a email one like the Vigilant's, but while the changing was going on Oaptain Cranfield decided to go about. No Booner had the Englishman gone around than tbe American followed suit. As the boats stood off on tbe port tack, it w ac Been tbe Vigilant was overaquarter of a mile ahead and just about as much to windward. They tried hard on the Valkyrie to send her head np intc the wind, but ehe could not better herself a single inch. - - When the Vigilant got around the first leg ehe was over a mile in the lead, but the Valkyrie stuck to ber work. Tbe wind was' almost directly over the starboard quarter as tbey started on the eecond leg. The Valkyrie now bad a chance to show what she could do in running before a real wholeeale breeze. It had been the eteody - claim of the cutter men that the model of their choice waa sure to beat the centerboard in that sort of work. Instead of doing so, the centerboard increased her lead to an extent that made everybody, triends and enemies, astounded. It was a fair and square open sea race, both boats finding every breath that waa aatir. When the Vigilant turned the flag at the end of the second leg, she was a good two miles in advance. Having rounded that mark, then came another leg on which the cutter was supposed to be much tbe better boat. The wind wae pretty nearly abeam, and the sheets were hauled aft. lt was a pretty good specimen of reach, and yet the light-draughted boat knocked the spots out of tbe deep craft. There was but one thing to say about it. Tbe Vfgilant continued to increase her lead from the time she began the leg until ebe crossed the finish line. She had made on tbe average at tbe end just about an actual sain of a mile on each of tbe three legs. It was an ample test, as has been told, on each of the three points, windward work, running and reaching. It ie generally admitted that the Val kyrie ia tbe beet boat England has ever sent over to win the America's cnp. She met, however, a yacht that is so lar hei superior that ber hitherto admirers all say there can be no doubt the Vigi lant will win three straight races, and therefore the match. Tbere remains, however, a queution aa to which of the boats is tbe more worthy in half a gale and a very rough sea. The official time was: Vigilant— Start, 11:25; finish, 2:50:01; elapsed time, 3:25:01; corrected time, 3:25:01. Valkyrie—Start, 11:25; finish, 3:02:24; elapsed time, 3:37 :24; corrected time, 3:35:3 G. Thus tbe Vigilant beat tbe Valkyrie by 12 minutes, 23 seconds, on lapsed time, and, after taking off 1 minute 48 seconds, time allowance, 10 minutes, 35 seconds. Tbe regatta committee say the Vigi lant crossed tbe starting line two sec onds ahead of tbe Valkyrie. This would reduce tbe victory of the Vigilant by two seconds, in actual time, but it dees not count as the yachts had equal chances to start at one gun signal. The gains of the Vigilant are officially reported to be 4 minutes,46 seconds, Ob TWENTY PAGES. tbe first leg, 4 minutes, 12 seconds, on tbe second, and 3 minutes, 20 seconds, on the third. An Associated Preee reporter taw Captain Cran field on the Valkyrie and asked him at to tbe race. The captain said: "I must say we are very much disappointed. I knew after Saturday's race we had a herd nut to crack, but I could not believe we could have been so well beater as we were." "Has not your knowledge of center board yachts, as com oared with keel, convinced you that tbe American plan is the better?" "I will not admit that yet," aaid the Scotch captain. "We can yet show you some other experiments." It is learned that tbe American yacht had a spar strained during the race. A new one had to be rigged, and as tbe re sult, Wednesday's race may be pat off until Thursday. CLEVELAND'S PLANS. Tbe President Getting; Ready for a Gold Boud Issue. Chicago, Oct. 9.—A Washington spe cial says: Cleveland is getting ready for the issue of gold bonds, probably $100, --000,000, either under a compromise sil ver bill or under the authority the treas ury department already baa. J. Pier pont Morgan, of Drexel, Morgan & Co., who helped to float the former issue of bonds, has just had oonferenoet with Carlisle and Greehaqp. He goes back to New York with tbe information tbat tho best compromise that can be made with the silver men is to continue the pur chase of 2,000,000 ounces of sil ver per month for three years, and authorize bonds ior the puroose of ncreaeing the gold reserve to $2,000,000. The silver men may insist on the pur chase of 2,500,000 ounces per montb. If they do they will consent to a provision permitting national banks to issue cir culation to the par value of their bonds. Cleveland may repudiate tbe proposed compromise; he may even seek to bead it off by announcing that he will provide for bonds under tbe authority be already has. Carlisle's emphatic denial of the report from Paris that tbe United States ie reeking to arrange a $1,000,000 bond issue abroad, and his boastful declaration that no bonda will be issued by tbe Demo cratic adminiatration, have no bearing en the eituation.

A Terrible Crush of People on the Grounds. Over Three-Qnartera of a Million in Attendance. Many Injured In th* Jam at the Gate* and Transportation Terminals—The Most Gorgeon* Pageant and Pyrotechnics. By tbe Associated Press. Chicago, Oct, 9. —A perfect autumn day and the largest crowd that ever gathered at a like gathering in the world's history, combined with all the other featnrea to make Chicago day at the world's fair an unprecedented suc cess. Everything on the programme went off with perfect success, and the only thing to mar tbe day or evening was a number of little accidents, in separable from- the crashing and jam ming of euch a mass of people as con gested the world's fair district. Happily there were bat few very serious acci dents, although a great many people were painfully braised in different crashes. Tbe crowd was larger than that at tbe banner day of tbe Paris ex position. Every part of the ground was crowded and the midway plaisance was almost impassable. A GENERAL HOLIDAY. Never before was a holiday so gener ally observed in Chicago. Every busi ness house of any consequence was closed, and small stores of all descrip tions followed suit. In all sections of the city these stores were closed, and even tbe thousands of milkmen caught the infection and notified their patrona eeveral days ago that they would make bat one delivery today. Many large firms, in addition to closing .their places of business, furnished their employees with tickets of admission to the fair. With all these people turned loose and added to by the tremendous injlox from outside during the past 48 hoars, it is not to be wondered at that such m crowd was never seen before. WENT Of* LIKE HOT CAKES. Among the moat notable features of the day were memorial editions of tho Inter-Ocean, the Record and the Times, newspapers of this city. These papers were profusely illustrated, contained elaborate reviews of Chicago and es pecially descriptions of the great lire. So unprecedented was the demand for these papers that from an -jarly hoar in the morning tbey sold at a premium, and by afternoon people were paying as high as 50 cents a copy for them. AN APPALLING CRUSH. At the down-town terminals all the morning the crush was appalling. At the steamboat landing, the Illinois Cen tral and the elevated stations, tbere was a jam tbe like of which bad never before been seen here, while along the line of tbe cable roads people were packed in a black mass for blocks. At the grounds the steady stream seemed to increase, rather than diminish, towards dark, as thousands of additional people began to make their way in to sea tbe night diaplay. TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES TAXED. Never in tho history of Chicago waa tbere each a demand on tbe transporta tion facilities as today. The crowd waa bandied well, bnt no human means, no system of transportation however vast, waa capable of handling Bach a vast crowd without difficulty. Accidents were few and only a small proportion of them were fatal." The majority of those hnrt were from outside points, and the trouble arose from their not being as cautious as the native Chicagoans in the navigation of tbe streets and in getting on tbe cars. VICTIMS OF THE CRUSH. Those killed were: Charles A. Clark of Buffalo, struck by a cable car. James Malcolm, residence unknown, died from a stroke ot apoplexy at th« fair. • , . : Among those injured on cable trains in the crush at the Illinois Central and elevated stations, etc., were: Mrs. Louise Rhode, of Gilman, 111.; Andrew Wellß of Waupaca, Wis.; William J. Burr, Hopkins, Ky.; O. F. Reylande, Mattoon, III.; Miss Nettie Rogers, Co lumbus, O.; Mrs. Matilda Stewart, Fond dv Lac, Wis.; Charles Long, Cincinnati; Toby Lanson, Chicago; Policeman Patrick Clifford. None of theee are thought to be fa tally hurt, but they, as well as many others whose names are not learned, will have painfnl reminders of tbe day for come time to come. THE GREATEST CRUSH. Tbe greatest crush occurred at Con gress street depot of the elevated road. The crowd there was simply terrifflc, and despite the utmost efforts of the police to keep tbem back, the jam was such that women began to faint and then panic followed, resulting in 6arious injury to many people. There were a number of distressing incidents on tbe fair ground proper tonight owing to the awful crush. Tbe hospital record at tj o'clock showed less than 40 slight cauu alities. Two hours later the number bad increased to 126. Of these most were women who had fainted and fallen in a heap in the rushing and surging mass that seemed to have lost ail tbe powers of reason. THE WORST OF ALL. The worst crush of all wbb in the early evening at the east side of tbe transpor tation bnilding, where the people be? came wedged in a great mass and a panic commenced. Men shouted themßeivoa hoarse to still the restless throng. Wo men screamed frantically and dozens Continued oa tilth page.
