should either be compelled to render
back to society a.i their special privil
eges, or to care for the unemployed.
The committee also condemned the
implied threat of the state authorities
to respond to the cries of hunger from
the unemployed with bullets, bayonets
and getting guns, instead of bread and
Another resolution submitted and
adopted condemns all projects looking
to the cession of the arid lands by con
gress to the states and territories, «h a

The Irish Question Shelved.
London, Oct. 18. —At Glasgow last
night Henry Asqnith, secretary of state
for home affairs, announced, contrary
to the impression made by Gladstone's
late speech, that the home rule bill
would not be taken up at the next ses
sion of parliament, but that the New
castle programme would be carried out.
This means that the Irish question is
shelved for some time.

Called Out—No Loaf of Lire
New York, Oct. 18.—Several men
were engaged in the extensive wall
paper bouse of William Campbell & Co.,
on Wejt Forty-first street tonight, get
ting ready samples for the road, when
fire broke out in the engine room, and
then like a flash spread through the
entiro structure. The entire lire depart
ment turned out. Borne of the sur
rounding buildings which were sup
posed to be doomed, were saved. T'le
men in the sample room were rescued
with difficulty. The tire spread so fast
that the police decided to clear
out all the occupants of the block.
The first property destroyed • was
the six-story factory of Hart As Nevius
of Tenth avenue and Forty-second
street. Then came five dwelling houses
and_»_t.l)Tee-fctory frame store; th»u the
factory ol William Camptoeil & CO.

Union Paclllo Receivers Will Abide by
the Northwestern Coutraol.
Omaha, Oct. 18. —The rumor that the
receivers of the Union Pacific me con
templating as the first step toward put
ting the property in stronger shape the
abrogation of the contract made a num
ber of years ago between the North
western and the Union Pacific, is stren
uously denied at headquarters. Gen
eral Passenger Agent Lomax said: "It
is foolish to think the receivers will
abrogate a contract that is mutually
advantageous. All this talk about the
abrogation of the contractis both prema
ture and illy warranted by the facts in the
case. There is no possibility of the
Northwestern completing its line to
Ogden, thereby depriving the Union Pa
cific of the business which now cornea
to it by right, as long as the contract is
in effect. The contract stipulates what
shall be done and what shall not be
done during the life of the agreement,
and building into our territory is ex
pressly prohibited. The contract is ad
vantageous in many ways and the talk
of abrogation is decidedly wrong."

Yellow Fever at Boston.
Boston, Oct. 18. —Thirteen of the cre*V
of a British steamer which arrived here
yesterday from Froteegesso, Mexico, are
sick with what is supposed to be yellow
fever. The vessel ia held at Quarantine

city until the nature of the disease has
been determined. Two died at sea.
Dr. Durbtn tonight says there is noth
ing in the history of the cases that war
rants the diagnosis of yellow fever. A
further examination will be made to
morrow which may result in a positive
statement of the case.
Later. —There is no yellow fever in

the English freight steamer Merkfull,
who arrived hero today from Progneso,
Yucatan, were ill during the voyage,

and Phonograph.
By the Associated Presi.
Baltimore, Oct. 18.—The festivities
in honor of the episcopal jubilee of Car
dinal Gibbons began today. The ca
thedral and Catholic institutions of the
city are elaborately decorated. The
faithful children of the mother church
gathered by thousands early to witness
the procession :>f church dignitaries,
which included, besides the cardinal
himself and Monsignor Satolli, every
archbishop in the hierarchy except Ri
ordan of San Francisco, Kendrick of St.
Louis and Salpointe of Mexico, besides a
large number of bishops, priests and
seminarians. The procession moved
from the archepiscopal residence to the
cathedral, where the pontifical high
mass was celebrated with most imposing
ceremonies. Gibbops and Satolli occu
pied tbroneß. The cardinal celebrated
mass and the sermon was delivered by
Archbishop Corrigan of New York, the
ceremony closing with the reading of a
letter from the pope bestowing the apos
tolic benediction on the cardinal, after
which the procession reformed and
marched to the cardinal's palace.
Immediately after the sermon Rev.
Father Hooker, vice-regent of the Amer
ican college in Rome, read the pope's
letter of congratulations as follows:
"Leo XIII, pope, to our beloved son.
James Cardinal Gibbons, archbishop of
Baltimore, health and apostolic benedic
tion. In the month of October next re
curs the auspicious day on which five
and twenty years ago you were raised to
the episcopal dignity. We, therefore,
prompted by your devoted attachment
to ua and by our affectionate regard for
you, express feelings oi the heartiest
congratulations wherewith we welcome
this occasion, that is no less joyous for
as than it is for you. And while we
render thanks to Almighty God, who
hitherto had you in His holy
keeping, we humbly beseech Him
in His Roodnets to grant
you the privilege which he has this year
mercifully vouchsafed to us (of celebrat
ing the golden jubilee of onr episcopate.)
In the meantime we send you a memor
ial of this gracious anniversary, intend
ing it likewise as a token of our earnest
good will towards you, We, moreover,
invoke upon you every blessing for your
happiness and welfare, and lovingly im
part to you, your clergy and the faithful
intrusted to your care, our apostolic
In'presenting the letter, Dr. Hooker
made an address felicitating the cardinal
and expressing the affection of . the
American college at Rome and repeating
the cordial .good wishes which His Holi
ness in his letter expressed to him.
The musical programme was the most
impressive feature of the occasion. The
mass was sung by a very large choir,
with organ and orchestral accompani
ments, while the Gregorian chanting of
the Credo and the Te Deum by semina
rians, 300 in number, was even more
Immediately after mass at the cathe
dral, the prelates and clergy went to St.
Mary's seminary, where they were en
tertained at dinner by the president.
From the dining hall the cardinal was
escorted to the manette, where an ad
drees of congratulation was presented
by the venerable Monsignor McColgan.
Responding to the toast the cardinal
spoke grateful ly of the honors tendered
him. In closing he proposed a toast to
the papal nuncio, and the toast was
drank standing. Archbishop Satolli
responded in Latin.
"The Seeof Baltimore" was responded
to by Archbishop Kain of St. Louis, and
"Our Country," by Archbishop Ryan of
Philadelphia. "Our Hierarchy," by
Bishop Hennessy of Kansas.
Then followed an interesting feature.
Dr, McCarty brought out tho phono
graph and those who were near enough
could hear a message in the pope's well
modulated tones:
"From the city of Rome, Leo XIII
sends to the people of America cordial
greetings and best wishes. Most heart
ily do we congratulate the country
flourishing in civilization and wealth
and the glory of growing industries.
We take pleasure and joy in the honors
fittingly rendered to Cardinal Gibbons.
We wish you, through the blessing of
Heaven, a copious increase of happi
ness and pleasure. The pilgrims of the
Catholic church we embrace with you,
and especially we bestow upon them
the apostolic benediction."
This concluded the exercises.
In the evening pontifical vespers
were celebrated at the cathedral. Arch
bishop Ireland delivered a sermon.

St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 18.—The reticence

which has at least more than a shadow
of credibility, comes the statement that
the amount was $250,007, .ustead of

believing the money has been mislaid at
some point.

Chicago, Oct. 18.—Secretary of Agri
culture Morton epoke on the silver
question before the national world's
fair commission today. He gave the
Populists a touching up incidentally.
He epoke in part as follows:
"To be Bure, as your president liaa
intimated, underlying all sciences and
arts is agriculture, and it has just begun
to dawn upon the agricultural minds
that it needs individual development
and self reliance in each citizen, rather
than gregarious organizations, which
may be deputized or given a power of
attorney to think for the farmers,
"We all understand that so far the
Grange and Alliance organizations have
attended to something else than farm
ing; they have beeu worked, to use tbe
parlance of the day, by journeymen
farmers who for political purposes
farmed tbe farmers. These organiza
tions, as a rule, Attended to everything
except agriculture. Many fallacies
which have been evolved for the allure
ment of the farmer are very catching.
Tbe teaching of many of the journey
men farmers has been to the effect that
the money of the .country is simply a
legal fiction. That what our people need
first and foremost fs an honest, unfluc
tuating measures of values. If gold is
the best money in the world then the
United States wants gold. We must
have a permanent standard of debt set
tlement, a permanent and unfluctuating
measure of values and a medium of ex
change. It seems to me this great con
gress of all nations illustrates fully the
fact that the commerce of tbe world is
the exchange of products, and the
money only settles the unadjusted

An Attempt to Get the Party to Go Into
Caucns on the Sliver Question.
Acrlmonlons Debate la
the Senate.
By the Afsociated Press.
W a sin not on, Oct. 18. —The Demo*
cratic steering committee of the senate
was in session a great part of the day
trying to devise a scheme for the settle
ment of the differences existing on the
financial question on that aide of the
chamber, and appearances at the close
of the day indicated that aorne progress
was made. It is asserted that the com
mittee progressed far enough to prepare
a rough draft of a bill which ii to be
submitted to the senate as soon as the
majority of the senators can be con
sulted upon its merits. The members
of the committee refused to confirm the
report, as did also those with whom
they consulted.
The story afloat also asserted that the
bill which was to be submitted would
simply provide for the extension of the
present law for a year from the first of
next July.
One great obstacle which apparently
stands in the way of progress is the
attitude of the repeal advocates. It is
stated that r,n effort is being made to
bring these members to see the im
portance of a settlement of the question,
and the scheme to bring about a party
measure will be dropped if this is uu
successful, and the Republican senators
will be asked to join the Democrats, so
as to make a majority of the senate
The Democratic conference for the
present has given way to a consultation
of senators individually, and it will not
be decided upon until iate in the week
if at all.
In a discussion of the situation th s
afternoon, Senator Pett grew eaid: "The
Democrats as a party cannot agree, nor
can the Republicans as a party. There
are 38 senators —Republicans, Demo
crats and Populißts— against repeal and
eight are counted with the repealers wto
nre anxious for a compromise. When
either of the parties can agree upon a
measure, the silver and eompromiee
men will get together and frame a bill
which wiil go through because they will
have the voteß to put it through."
Vest is circulating a call for a caucus
of all the Democratic senators. It pledges
them to abide by the result, if any ia
reached. Tbe silver men sign it readily,
but the repeal mtn are holding off. It
is doubtful whether Gorman will issue
the call unless the desire for it beams
pretty general, as he thinks it ia likely
it will do more harm than good.
Voorhees said to day he would make
an effort to continue for the present the
recess system inaugurated last evening.
His plan is to have the senate sit each
day from 10 a. m. to 6p. m. He is of
the opinion that this will prove tbe best
plan for turning out work and getting
rid of long speeches. He thinks the end
of the long debate is near, and intimates
that the present wet-k may close it.
Morgan Replies to Hill Daniel and Mill*
Lock Horns*
Washington, Oct. 18,—On reconven
ing this morning tbe senate listened to
Morgan of Alabama on tbe motion of
Dolph of Oregon to amend Monday's
journal so as to show tbe presence of
Allen at 6:30 p.m. of that day, Allen
having failed to answer when his name
was called. Morgan devoted most of
his remarks to a reply to Hill's speech
of yesterday, taking occasion to charac
terize the latter as an astute politician,
rather than a fair-minded lawyer, in
twisting a decision of the supreme court
to serve bis purpose, adding that it took
an easy conscience to follow the su
preme court in all its decisions.
Morgan continued at great length,
touching on his part in the rebellion, oi
which he was not ashamed, and saidl
"Tbe clock struck at the White Hons*
and the cuckoos in the senate put their
beads out of a box and responded, and
informed us of the time of day."
At the conclusion of Morgan's speech
Voorhees moved to lay on tbe table tbe
motion of Dolph to amend the journal.
It was agreed to: Yeas, 45; nays, 3.
Teller (Rep.) of Colorado then moved
to amend tbe journal so that it would
show his presence on a certain roll call
when he did not respond to hie name,
and he addressed the senate. He
quoted from a statement of Carlisle in
regard to insisting upon the passage of
the repeal bill and said: "What right
has the secretary of tbe treasury to in
terfere with us in this matter? 1 recent
it myself as a breach oi privilege.
When we surrender our convictions,
whether it be on the advice of the pres
ident or on account of public clamor,
tbe degradation of the eenate will begiu
and the usefulness of the senate will be
at an end."
He eaid when the senate declined to
be stamped by boards of trade, etc., it
would command the respect of tbe
American people.
Allen of Nebraska here suggested that
no quorum was present. Roll call de
veloped the feet that 48 senators were
present, and Teller proceeded. Speak
ing of his right to refrain from voting,
Teller referred to the fact that Cockling.
Carpenter and Blame when members of
the senate, had frequently taken ad
vantage of the privilege, and declared
that no one questioned their knowledge
of the constitution and parliamentary
