tbe legislative day of October 17th being continuous. Stewart of Nevada gave notice of an amendment be tatenitod to offer to the repeal bill, proposing a conference to be held at Washington witwfn nine months, between delegates of the I 'United States, Mexioo. Central America, South Amer ica, Hayti and San Donrirtgo, for tbe adoption of common silver win to be a legal tender between tbe citizt ns of tbe countries represented. Consideration of the repeal bill was then resumed. Jones of Nevada re sumed his argument in opposition to the bill. Jones made an elaborate argu ment, which be was advancing vr.hen the senate took a recess Saturday e"s»ae ing, that the etasKiard of tbe courAtry could be neither gold, silver nor a ma terial thing, but tbat whatever the Standard might be, it was quantitative, an,d tbat tbe value of each unit depended npovv the number of unite, aud that therexCotild be but a single standard in the coo.utry, and that one of quantity. Last so.mmer tbe British government, desiring to Abow its sympathy with the object of tnve administration in this country, issuec,' an o.der with a view of facilitating the descent of silver. The order was taken V New York to be an announcement of hie doom of silver. During tbis time where* waa the United States government, of ell nations toe most interested? The position of the chief magistrate of tbis country on tbe question wae well illustrated by a line Irom Emerson : "I am the dob-bter and doubt," but in a word of a supplemental line the genius of tbe republic atimon ished tbe president, as well as ureat Britain, that the people of the Urfttert States did not propose to be left out ot consideration aa to what should be tb\f> material of their money. The United States is not yet a dependency of Great Britain, and the president is not gov ernor-general. For tbe first time in our national history we find ourselves put ting into execution, through officers elected by tbe people of tbe United States, plans wbicb, if not formulated, are heartily approved at the Horso Guards and on Downing street. At 1:05 p. m. Jones remarked tbat he desired to yield the floor to Teller of Colorado, expressing a desire to resume bis speech at another time. Teller answered questions as to whether he thought tbe government of the United States could, with free coin age of silver, maintain a parity between gold and silver, by saying it could, be cause he did not believo more silver would come to the country than busi ness would absorb. In other words, tbe demand would be equal to tbe supply. "Free coinage of tbe silver of tbe United States might not do it alone," said Teller, in answer to a question by Palmer. "The|position I take is that onr example will be followed by other countries and then the monetary system would return to the system that pre vailed prior to the demonetization of silver by Germany, the United States, the Latin union, etc." Stewart of Nevada then addressed the senate in advocacy of his proposed amendment for a pan-American confer ence. Without concluding, Stewart yielded, and tbe senate took a recess un til tomorrow. HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. Tha Bankruptcy Bill and Other Matters Dader Consideration. Wabhinuton, Oct. 23.—1n the house today the senate amendments to the Rawlins bill for the relief ot tbe Mormon church were agreed to. Kilgore objected to the bill authoriz ing tbe payment of tbe expenses of L. L. Williams, world's fair commissioner from Alaska, on tbe ground tbat it would result in a deluge of such claims. The printing bill wae passed, 167 to 17. Consideration of the bill to provide for tbe construction of a revenue cutter on tbe great lakes to replace the Andy Johnson was then resumed. Loud of California offered a substitute, including a provision for a revenue cut ter for the harbor of San Francisco. Chairman Sayres of the appropria tions committee opposed tbe substitute and served notice on bis Democratic colleagues tbat unless tbey joined him in economizing this would be a billion dollar congress. Loud withdrew his substitute and tbe bill was passed. Tbe bouse then proceeded to the con sideration of tbe bankruptcy bill. Oatea opened the debate [n advocacy of it. W. A. Stone of Pennsylvania led the opposition to the bill in a strong and carefully prepared speech. Sibley of Pennsylvania opposed the bill ac tbe incarnation of all evils. At the conclusion of SiDley's speech tbe bouse adjourned. THE GREAT COLORADO. Governor Hughe* of Arizona Lobbying at Washington. Washing ton, Oct. 23. — Governor Hughes, of Arizona, had an important conference with Minieter Romero, of Mexico, touching improvements of the Colorado river which would add to its importance as a channel of commerce. Tha governor represented to Romero tbat tbe Colorado is tbe second largest stream on tbe Pacific coast, and said that with secure jetties at the mouth, and with some dredging along the course of the stream, it could be made naviga ble 000 mites, far up into Arizona and Nevada, tapping the rich mineral de posits in the mountains and a fine agri cultural and horticultural region in the lower country. He pointed out that Mexico, along the gulf of California, is possessed of large forests of fine timber and immense deposits of coal, in both of which the southwestern portion of the United States is datlicient. Gover nor Hughes thinks the government of the United States would make the necessary improvement within its boun dary, if the Mexican government would do as much within the Mexican terri tory along the lower 151) miles of the river in Mexico. Minister Romero was very much impressed with the repre sentations made by the governor, and said he would recommend his govern ment to give the matter attention. He thought the best way to proceed would be tot the two governments to join in tbe appointment of a commission to in vestigate tbe entire question. SUPREME COURT. Jostles Jackson Renders a Decision in an Important Case. Washington, Oct. 23 —A decision of importance to the railroads in tbe far west was rendered today by the United States supreme court. The Ddnver and Bio Grande waa Bued by tbe United States for the value of timber, Btone and other material taken from the public domain and used in the construction of its railroad iv sections teiuote from the vicinity from which the mateiial was taken. Under the act of 1875, grant ing the railroads right of way over tbe oublic domain, tbey were given the privilege of using materials on the pub lic domain, but it was contended by the United Stateß that this privilege was timed so that the material could be need only on the part of tbe road adja cent to tbe place from which it was taken. Justice Jackson, speakin for the court, said tbis was too narrow a ' construction of the law, and that there was no limitation as to the part of the road on which tbe material might be used, the only limitation being tbat the material must come from lands adjacent to some part of the railroad's right of way. Tbe court accordingly affirmed the' judgment of the Colorado circuit court. Congressman Bell's Bill. 1 Washington, Oct 23.—Representative Bell of Colorado has introduced a bill to reduce tbe fees for transcribing testi mony in land cases in the states west of .tbe Missouri river.

Neither of the men were used to desert traveling and took few of the precautions cußtomary with old pros pectors. When found, Pulaer bad been without water three days. He .had dug a well six feet deep for water, bttt with out success, and crazed with delirium he had lain down to die. His companion, whose Btrength had failed some miles back, had crawled under a mesquiie bush and recovered strength sufficient so tbat he had the next day gone back over the trail to a brackish pool where be had remained in reach of water.

The Poison of the Cobra. The bito of the terrible cobra of India is looked upon as meaning certain deathf It is not surprising that experiments to determine the nature of this awful poison should attract wide attention when they are made in a scientific man ner entitling their results to be accepted with confidence. Such experiments have recently been conducted by Mr. A. A. Kanthock. The venom was obtained by pressing tho heads of living cobras, by which nerve trying operation the deadly fluid was squeezed out of the fangs. The fluid drip* very quickly and leaves a yellow substance resembling gum am bie or the dried albumen of egg, which is easily pulverized. Tbe activity of the poison is destroyed by prolonged boiling, a concentrated solution of it withstanH ing the effects of boiling for an hour or two before entirely losing its poisonous action. A weak solution could be ren dered innocuous by being boiled from 20 minutes to half an hour. But of course this can give no comfort to any victim of a cobra bite, since tho venom, once injected into his blood, could by no possibility bo subjected to such a process of boiling. Ammonia and chlorine water also proved capable.of destroying tbe poison if applied to it for a considerable time in strong solutions, and carbolic acid con siderably delayed its poisonous action. Some hope bad been raised that doses of strychnia might prove a means of cure, but the experiments showed that there was no foundation for this hope, So far, then, a euro for tho bite of the cobra remains to be discovered.— Youth's Companion. Lightning-'* Destructive Power. During the year 1891 203 lives were lost (that we know of) in the United States east of the Rocky mountains di rectly through the action of lightning. How many were lost indiredtly, and how many cases there were of shattered health and more or less permanent in jury, we can only surmise*. The finan cial logs due directly to lightning was certainly not below 11,500^000. To got at something like a commercial estimate of 1 he damage done by lightning in the past few years in this country, I have made use of The Chronicle fire ta bles for the six years 1885-90 and find 'that some 2,223 fires, or 1.3 per cent of the whole number, were caused by light ning, and the total loss was $3,386,826, or 1.25 per cent of the whole amount lost by fire. During 1892 we have a record of 292 lives lost. Tho damage may be estimated at as high a figure as iv 1891. These! losses are the more appalling when we recall that over 93 per cent of thu casualties due to lightning occur be tween the months of April and Septem ber. i,ua laoho siiivi; ', , • The question, whether or not wo are able to protect ourbelvos fruru lightning some five years ago would have been answered readily and with all sincerity, "Yes; a good electrical connection with the carth —a i-tout continuous copper rod, for example—will suffice."
