I the rules and prevent endless filibuater-
I ing. Referred to the committee on
I rules.
Hill also offered a resolution to au
thorize the presiding officer to count a
quorum when present but not voting.
Hoar had read a bill providing for an
appropriation of $50,000 for the relief of
the sufferers by the recent storms on the
eea islands on the coast of South Caro
lina. With it was a memorial prepared
by Clara Barton of the Red Cross so
Tbe house resolution for printing, in
stead of writing engrossed and enrolled
congressional bills, was agreed to.
The bill amending the act for the ex
clusion of Chinese was taken up, and
Gray explained its provisions.
Hoar offered an amendment in tbe
nature of a substitute, striking out all
but the enacting clause. Tbe amend
ment suspends Chinese immigration
pending the settlement of tbe wbole
question by a treaty with the Chinese
government, and amends the provisions
of tbe existing law regarding the regis
tration and trial of Chinese aliens.
Davis also offered a substitute provid
ing for the repeal of all existing laws
excluding Chinese immigration.
Palmer took exception to the provis
ions of the bill rejecting the evidence in
court of Chinese witnesses and tbe
clauee refusing bail to Chinese arrested
under the provisions of the bill before
their guilt is established.
Perkins of California said the Califor
nia people were satisfied with tbe pres
ent law. It was tbe administration and
the attorneys of the Chinese that were
making the request for a change. Per
kins said tbe Chinese now see their mis
take, and if the time for registration is
extended according to the provisions of
the bill, they might comply. The
people of California and other Pacific
coast states have doubts, however. He
thought tbat the result would be tbat

torneys would ask for another exten
Perkins read a letter from the chief
if police of San Francisco, saying of the
areata for crime, except drunkenness,
in San Francisco, aboutßo percent were
if Chinese inhabitants. Not 30 per
jf tbe Chinese in California bad been
converted to Christianity. A careful
imputation reveals the fact, Perkins
'md, that since the Chinese began com
,ng to ibis country in numbers, they
lava taken or sent back to China $810,-
X) 0,000 American money.

A Most Horrifying Accident at
Portland, Ore.
An Electric Car Plusg » Into the
Willamette Kiver.
Phiu|«i Drowned Like Rati In a
Trap—Five Bodies Reoorered.
Two Mora Bettered to Be
la the Wr.ok.
Bt ths Associated Tress.
Portland, Ore., Nov. I.—One of the
most horrifying accidents in the history
of this city, occurred about 7 o'clock
this morning. An electric car from
Oregon city plunged off the Madison
street bridge into tbe Willamette river,
drowning all of tbe occupants, who are
thought to have been five in number.
Two bodies have been already recov
ered, but not yet identified. The car
contained about 15 passengers, but 10 of
tbem escaped by jumping just as thecar
left the bridge. A heavy fog was pre
vailing at the time of tbe accident and
ihe draw of the bridge was open for a
passing steamboat. James Steel, presi
dent of tbe railway company, bas been
placed under arrest.
A heavy fog was prevailing and the
draw was open for the passage of the
steamer Klwood. So far as known the
car contained about 20 passengers. Jnst
before the car reached the e H ge of the
draw the conductor saw the impending
dangsr and gave the alarm. The pas
sengers rushed out of the car in a con
fused mass and it is thought all but six
at 'hem succeeded in getting off thecar
tn: >re it took tbe fatal plunge.
Three bodies bave been already re
' covered and taken to the morgue, viz :
' Charles Hreckman, a book-keeper, leaves
| a wife ; Alex. Campbell a saloon-keeper,
leaves a wife and child; Johsn P. An
derson, a cabinet-maker, leaves a wife
and five children. Three men named
1 Bennock, Sladter and Scott are missing.
Several of the passengers received
slight injuries in jumping irom thecar.
Motorman C. F. Terry gives the fol
lowing version of the accident: "When
the car came on the bridge tbe power
was thrown of! and the car approached
the draw at a low rate of speed. The
fog was so heavy tbat I was unable to
see tbe lights at tbe draw. When about
four spans from the draw 1 put on tbe
brakes, but owing to tbe slippery condi
tion of tbe track they refused to work
and I bad no sand. When within one
span of the draw I reversed the car, but
tbe momentum was co great that it was
of no avail. Seeing that it was impos
sible to avert the accident, 1 jumped,
catching the railing of tbe bridge just
as tbe car crashed through the wooden
gate in front of tbe chasm."
Conductor W. C. Power states that he
was standing in the front end of the car
making out a report, when he saw tbe
impending danger. The car was then
bnt a few feet from tbe gate. He
shouted to the passengers to jump, and
a scramble followed. The conductor
states that his register of tbe fares paid
showed 11. This, however, is no index
to the number, as many of the passen
gers who came from Milwaukee or
points outside tbe city limits paid double
fares, which were shown by the register
as two faros while representing but one
paßßenger. In addition lh*r« **,»>a »
number of passengers riding on ticketß
issued by tbe company wbich were
punched by the conductor but not re
corded. The conductor thinks there
were 18 or 20 persons on the car.
Preparations are being made for div
ers to go down to the car wbich lies at a
depth of 30 feet. The conductor and
motorman were placed under arrest,
but released on tbeir own recognizance.
There was only one lady passenger on
tbe car, a Miss Tbayer, who in tbe
scramble to get out of tbe car got caught
in tbe doorway, from whence she was
extricated without serious injury. The
railroad company are the recipients of a
great deal of censure in not providing
the cars with sand.
Late this afternoon tbe body of T.
Bennick was recovered. This makes
tbe fifth. Bennick was a deaf mute.
He leaves a wife and three children.
Paul O'Dear and a boy named Albee are
missing, and it is thought possible they
are among the drowned. The coroner
will hold an investigation tomorrow.
A Peruviana ou|»*>**sics«Ms.
The girls of tho Perugian highlands
believeas firmly as any heroine ot The*
ocritus that a person possessing a lock
of another person's hair can will pain,
disease and even death to the owner
of the hair, and thus when maidens give
their betrothed lovers the customary
plaited tress it is virtually their life and
all their power of suffering that they
give into those trusted hands.
If the man should prove unfaithful
and disease descend upon tbe unhappy
woman, she is not, however, utterly lost,
the experienced matrons of her village
have means to transfer the complaint to
a tree, to an animal or to cast it into
running water. The patient must rise
in the early dawn, touch a certain plant
in a certain manner, saying, "May thou
wither aud I flourish again," or bind her
complaint to a tree in a given fashion,
taking care never to pass again before
that tree lest the disease, recognizing its
former possession, return to her again.—

Ice Cream Poisoning.
This is a reproach to the professions
of medicine and chemistry, Year after
year, with mournful reiteration, thero
are many reports of fatal cases. The
deaths from this source must immensely
exceed thoso from hydrophobia, but Pas
teur institutes spring up like mushrooms
in every country, while the deaths of
the victims of poisoning by the cream
are passed over in silence. Would it not
be well to look into this matter? Wonld
it not be well to prove or disprove the
theory of a writer that the common ice
cream freezer is often an electric battery
decomposing toxic products by means
of the mixture acting as an electrotype?

I A Wonderful Little Machine That Took
Hundred* of Tear* to Ferfeet.
Open your watch and look at the little
j wheels, springs and screws, each an in
. dispensable part of the whole wonderful
I machine. Notice the busy little balance
wheel aa it flies to and fro unceasingly,
day and night, ypar in and year ont.
This wonderful little machine is the re
sult of hundreds of years of study and
experiment. The wntch carried by the
average man is composed of 9S pieces,
and its manufacture embraces more than
2,000 distinct and scpnrnto operations.
Some of the smallest screws are so
minute that the unaided eye cannot dis
tinguish them from steel filings or specka
of dirt. Under a powerful magnifying
glass a perfect screw is revealed. The
slit in the head is 2-1,000 of an inch
wide. It takes 308,000 of these screws
to weigh a pound, and a pound is worth
$1,585. The hairspring is a strip of the
finest steel, about 94. inches long and
1-100 inch wide and 27-10,000 inch thick.
It is coiled up in spiral form and finely
The process of tempering these springs
waa long held as a secret by the few for
tunate ones possessing it and even now
is not generally known. Their manu
facture requires great skill and care.
The strip iB gauged to 20-1,000 of an
inch, but no measuring instrument has
yet been devised capable of fine enough
gauging to determine beforehand by the
size of the strip what the strength of the
finished spring will be. A 1-20,000 part
of an inch difference In thickness of the
atrip makes a difference in the running
of a watch of about six minutes per
The value of these springs when fin
ished and placed in watches is enormous
in proportion to tho material from which
they are made. A comparison will give
a good idea. A ton of steel made up
into hairsprings when in watches is
worth more than 124 times'the value of
tho same weight in gold. Hairspring
wire weighs 1-20 of a grain to the inch.
One mile of wire weighs less than half
a pound. »
The balance gives five vibrations ev
ery second, 300 every minute, 18,000 ev
ery hour, 432,000 every day, and 157,
--680,000 every year. At each vibration it
rotates about 1J times, which makes
107.100,000 every year. In order that
we may better understand the stupen
dous amount of labor performed by these
tiny works, let us make a comparison.
Take, for instance, a locomotive with
6 foot driving wheels. Let its wheels
be run until they have given the same
number of revolutions that a watch does
in one year, and they \<ll have covered
a distance equal to 28 complete circuits
of the earth. All this a watch does
without other attention than winding
once every 2-4 hours.—Locomotive Engi
Effect of I.i_-:niiin- on the Body.
In describing the recent death of a
\ boy by lightning a dispatch stated that
an accurate picture of trees and foliage
in the vicinity of the accident was made
ion the boy's body, which phenomenon
was supposed to have been produced by
1 the lightning in a manner similar to
] that of making pictures or photography.
This, however, is not correct. While
i such marks aro observable occasionally
: on the bodies of persons killed they bear
\no relation whatever to foliage of sftr
t romidivipr tv.. f . s ;ilrhnneb they hear acpr
! tain resemblanc eto those objects. There
is really no photographing of the image
of the trees on the body. That tiie ac -
tual cause is quite different can l>e proved
by experiment in the laboratory. When
electricity is discharged at high tension,
as lightning is. on the Snrfaco of a h Ay
having a poor conducting power, a l i
i minims arborescent imAfie is formed,
I showing the path of one or more of the
sparks resulting from the discharge.
This was most beautifully shown in
the experiments carried out with high
tension currents in London by Swin
burne. The current would exhibit scat
tered lines of light that would develop
into most exquisite tracery and take the
! form of plants or trees. The theory of
i this phenomenon is that the irregular
courses taken by the spark may be duo
to the compression of air in the path of
the discharge, or to superior conductiv
ity of somo parts of the surface of the
body.—St. Louis Globe-Demdcrat.
