LOS ANGELES, SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 7, 1894-
THE DEADLOCK CONTINUED
Democrats Powerless To Take
Up the Tariff Bill.
Still Lacking Eleven of Having
Their Own Quorum.
Ten Democrats Help the Bepnblicans
to Filibuster.
The Decree of King; Caucus Disregarded.
The Sergeant-at-Arins Instructed
To Arrest All Absent
Members.
Bj tbe Associated Press.
Washington, Jan. 6.—The deadlock
in the house continued today. The
Democratic managers were powerless to
produce their own quorum, despite tbe
decree of the caucus last night. High
water mark today was 163 Democrats, 11
lobb than a quorum. The Republicans,
Populists, and about 10 Democrats re
fused to vote. After four hours spent
in fruitless roll calls, tbe Democrats
adopted a resolution ordering the arrest
of members absent without leave, and
then adjourned.
Immediately after tbe reading of tbe
journal Boutelie started the fight on a
new tack, but was bandied roughly.
Oatchings called up tbe report from
the committee on rules, while Boutelie
was clamoring for recognition on the
ground that be rose to a question of
privilege. The speaker sought to ignore
nim, but he was nu peisUtent that he
wae finally recognized. He said be de
sired to call up the Hawaiian resolution,
and explained that he made the point
that while both questions were privil
edged, his resolution, involving tbe
rights and dignity of the house, was of
higher privilege than a mere privileged
report, which related only to pastime and
procedure. He drew tbe distinction
clearly between a privileged question
and a question of privilege, and read
from tbe rules and asked a ruling by tho
speaker.
Ex-Speaker Reed interposed to say he
hoped Boutelle's point of order would be
given careful consideration as its correct
determination was important for the
orderly proceeding of tbe house.
Boutelie then maintained tbat his
resolution having been declared priv
ileged, and not having been disposed of,
was still before the house, and bad been
before the house for the last three days.
Tbe speaker declared Boutelie mis
apprehended the status of affairs, and
stated tbat the pending question this
morning was on the demand for the pre
vious question.
Tbe speaker was just about to direct
the clerk to call the roll, when Boutelie,
standing in the aisle at the front of the
rostrum, interposed : "I hope the chair
will reflect before he makes that rul
ing."
"Any intimation that the chair has
not reflected, is a reflection on the
chair," retorted the speaker severely.
Boutelie dieclaimed any intention to
reflect on tbe chair, but tbe speaker
would not be appeased. He declared
emphatically tbat tbe chair had ruled,
and directed tbe clerk to cail tbe roll on
the motion to take np the rules commit
tee report.
In the midst of the great confusion
Boutelie, while tbe loud voice of tbe
clerk was ringing through tbe hall,
shouted tbat he appealed from tbe de
cision of the chair, but no attention was
paid to him by the speaker.
"1 protest against the whole proceed
ing," he yelled above tbe din, then re
tired to his seat while tbe Democrats
laughed heartily.
The Republicans, continuing their
filibustering tactics of tbe laat three
days, sat silent in the Beats. The fol
lowing Democrats also refused to answer
to their names : Sibley, Beltzhoover of
Pennsylvania, Campbell of New York,
English of Now Jersey, Geary of Cali
fornia, Sperry of Connecticut. The vote
resulted 167 to Oi Tbe Democrats still
lacked 12 of a quorum, three more than
high water mark,
Before tbe announcement of the vote,
on motion of Catchings, a call of tbe
bouse was ordered. Tbe call developed
tbe presence ot 270 members.
On motion of Catcbingß, further pro
ceedings under the call were dispensed
witb, and the vote recurred on the de
mand for the previous question. The
same old story. Again tbe Republicans
and a email coterie of Democrats re
mained mute and the quorum disap
peared. This time 168 Democrats voted,
one more than ou tbe first roll call.
On motion of Catchings a call of tbe
house was ordered. Daring the progress
of the call Hull asked that bia colleague,
Perkins, be excused on the ground of
important business. Objection was
made, and then Hull moved that he be
excused. This resulted iv a parliament
ary tangle. On a rising vote he was
excused.
Reed then demanded tellere, and tbe
house, by a vote of 138 to 67, refused to
excuse him. Reed demanded tbe ayes
and nays, and backed by the Republican
minority, succeeded in forcing a roll call
on the question of excusing Perkins.-By
a vote of 133 to 116 Perkins was excused.
Upon the announcement, Reed moved
to adjourn. Loston a rising vote—Bl to
149.
Catchings, from tbe committee on
rules, then offered a resolution ordering
the eereeant-at-arms to take into cue
today and bring to the bar of the house
Bucb members as were absent without
leave; tbe c iter to be continuing in
case of adjournment and to be re
turnable at the next session of the
house. Tbe eergeant-at-arms was also
instructed to employ a sufficient number
of deputies to carry out the order.
The previous question was demanded
and the resoluturi passed, and then, at
3 o'clock, tbe bouse adjourned,

THE LIST OF ABSENTEES.
Name* of tho Membnre Whose Arrest
Hhs Beeu Ordered.
Washington, Jan. <<. —Following ie a
list of roimbere for wboen nrreat war
lante buve been prepared nnder tbe
Catchings' resolution: Barnes of Wis
consin, Belden of New York, Bingbam
of Pennsylvania, Boatner of Louisiana,
Broderick of Kansas, Brown of Indiana,
Bunn of North Carolina, Cadmus of
New Jersey, Childs of Illinois, Cobb of
Alabama, Cooper of, Texas, Cornish of
New Jersey, Davey of Louisiana,

of Pennsylvania, Sherman and Sickles
of New York, Stockdale of Mississippi,
Strait and Talbert of South Carolina,
Turpin of Alabama, Weaver of New
York, White of Ohio, Edwards of North
Carolina, Woomer of Pennsylvania.
The list is pretty evenly divided be
tween Republicans and Democrats. Pa
pers have been placed in tbe hands of
employees of the bouse to serve. What
will be done with the members after ar
raigned at the bar of the house is a ques
tion tbe house must decide, but under
the present rulings they cannot be forced
to vote to make np a quorum, if, after be
ing arraigned, they still refuse to vote.
It is possible, however, some of the
members would not decline to vote when
their actual presence in congress is bo
cleariy in evidence.
DEMOCRATIC OBJECTORS.
The Entire California Delegation Op
posed to the Wilson Bill.
Washington, Jan. 6. —Sperry of Con
necticut, who represents tbe Demo
cratic objectore to tbe Wilson bill, Bays:
"Tbe committee on waya and means bas
reported a tariff bill, showing $75,000,
--000 deficiency, and haa agreed on an in
come tax. Every one is able to act in
veutK«uiiy Oil the tariff bill, but the in
ternal revenue bill bas not yet been re
ported, and nobody knows what it will
contain. It is nnderstood the internal
revenue bill will be attached to the tariff
bill as an amendment, and yet the rules
committee propose to limit debate on a
matter on which no member of congress
has authentic information. Every con
gressman is entitled to have intended
legislation put into print, witb majority
and minority reports, before voting a
cloture on a bill not in existence. Until
the ways and means committee decide
what they want to do, they can hardly
object if we delay further proceedings in
the house until the committee decide
what course of action they expect to
pursue." .
Geary of California says he ie opposed
to the Wilson bill, and shall continue to
refuse to vote. "The bill waa not taken
into caucus; has not been amended to
suit Democrats, and will not pass. I
think the entire California Democratic
delegation will be with me in opposing
trie bill. The rates on wines and fruits
are extremely unjust. The tariff on still
wines will permit tbe courtry to be
flooded witb cheap foreign wines, and
California will not be able to place a
gallon in the eastern market. We will
protest until this is changed."
THE BOND QUESTION.
It Will Not Be Considered Till Tariff Is
Out of the Way.
Washington, Jan. 6.—Chairman Wil
son Bays there will be no consideration of
tbe bond question until tbe tariff bill is
out of tbe way. The committee bas not
yet given the slighest attention to tbe
matter of bonds.
Harter of Ohio today introduced a bill
giving the secretary of the treasury
authority to issue bonds whenever con
sidered necessary, the bonds to bear in
terest at 3 per cent and run 30 years or
less, at tbe option of the government.
Harter says the bill is not the result of
any talk with Carlisle or any other ad
ministration official.
Death of Mrs. Cockerell.
Washington, Jan. 6. —Mrs. F. M.
Cockrell, wife of Senator Cockrell of
Missouri, died this afternoon at the
family residence here, of pneumonia.
She was a daughter of tbe late Judge
Ewing, many yearß of the Missouri su
preme bench.
COLD IN GREAT BRITAIN.
Deun Snow In the Streets of London,
The Mercury Do*n to Zero.
London, Jan. 6.—Snow fell today to
the depth of several inches. Nothing
liko the present period of snow and cold
has been experienced here since 1888.
There is a large amount of snow in the
streets of London.
At Shorncliffe last night the mer
cury fell to zero, There has been a
renewal of the storms in Ireland
where railroad traffic is considerably
impeded. Cross-channel service be
tween Holyhead and Dublin is delayed

England there have been domestic
boiler explosions, with several fatalities,
due to tbe intense cold.

"NO SABE LEGISTLATION."
Highbinders on the Warpath
in Sau Fraocisco,
They Warn All Chinese Not to
Register.
Convicted Felons Assist in the Work"
of Intimidation.
Rumored Resignation of A, N. Towne
The Atchison Receivers to Take
Charge of the Southern
California.
By the Associated Press.
San Fbancisco, Jan. 6. —The high
binders and keepers of disreptnable re-
Borts in Chinatown are up in arms
against the law calling for the regis
tration of Chinese residing in the
United States. Assisting these are
Chinese convicted of felony, who can
not register and are subject to deporta
tion. Last night a general raid was
made on all the circulars of information
poEted in Chinatown and they were torn
down. A proclamation was issued by
tbe highbinders warning all Chinese
not to register. This proclamation bas
served to carry fear into tbe ranki of
the more reputable Chinese, who are
willing to register under tbe new
law. According to reports given out
it ie apparent that the registration of
Chinese ia going to be conducted under
riifflnnUiaa, The situation has narrowed
down to a war between the reputable
and the disreputable Chinese, in which
the latter have the advantage of num
bers. Just what will follow in the event
of the reputable Cninese registering is
hard to predict, but open war is threat
ened. Every facility ie offered Chinese
to register, but few are availing them
selves of the privilege.
PENNOYER CALLED DOWN.
Taxpayers and Business Men of Oregon
Censure the Governor.
Portland, Ore., Jan. 6.—The tax
payers' committee of one hundred this
afternoon adopted a eet of resolutions
condemning the statements in Governor
Pennoyer'B Christmas letter to President
Cleveland, in which be said: "More
than two-thirds of the people of the
state are without employment and more
than one-third without sufficient means
of support."
Tbe resolution concludes as follows :
"It becomes our duty as citizena, how
ever much we may dislike to raise any
question of veracity between ne, to de
nounce the governor's representation
in the premises as wholly unwarranted.
In consequence of tbe assumption on
the part of the governor, of duties not
included in those he took oath upon hie
induction into office to faithfully per
form, and without intending any disre
spect, we commend to him hie own pre
scription 'attend to your business' and
let the president attend to his own
business."
The chamber of commerce adopted
tbe following: "Wecondemn the state
ments of the governor ac erroneous, in
jurious and" not warranted nor substan
tiated in any manner by the facte or con
ditions existing in any section of the
state or throughout the state as a whole."
A SENSATIONAL SUIT.
Banker Woodward of Fresno In Serlona
Trouble.
San Francisco, Jan. 6.—The Ex
aminer says in a few days a suit of a
sensational character will be brought
against O. J. Woodward, president of
the First National bankot Fresno. The
action is the outgrowth of wholesale
forgeries perpetrated by W. F. Baird
when cashier of the Bank of Madera.
It involves $5000, the value of
129 shares of capital stock of
the bank of Elsinore, which Baird
haa forged and sold to Woodward, and
which Woodward sold to D. M. Tom
blin, agent of the Pacific bank, knowing
the same to be forged and worthless
paper. The Kxaminer prints corre
spondence between Woodward and the
cashier of tho bank of Elsinore, tending
to prove that Woodward knew the Elsi
nore bank stock sold by him was worth
less before he Bold it.

FEELING IN BRAZIL.
Pernambncn and Other Northern State.
Ready to Revolt.
Bt. Vincent, W. 1., Jan. 6.—A dis
j patch from the Associated Press corre
j epondent at Pernan.bnco, dated Decem
| ber 27th,says: After a most oarefnl
| nen-partiean investigation, he has been
1 forced to tbe conclusion that feeling in
favor of the revolution ie constantly
| spreading in the north, and that the
presence of government soldiers would
not be enough to restrain it, but for the
' presence of tbe Nictberoy and America,
;If they should depart, rebellion
would break out in the south.
Even tits government troops Bym
{ pathize with tbe rebellion and would
• not be very severe with the rebels in
| case of an uprising. Tbe crews of the
! Nictberoy and America are reported to
! be much dissatisfied at not receiving the
wages promised them, and it is believed
unless paid it will be very difficult to
get tbem to fight. Tbe rebellion feeling
in tbe north ie solely against Peixoto's
military dictatorship, not in favor of
monarchy, as they unanimously favor
the republic.
It' is stated here that the Nictheroy
and her consort have been instructed
not to engage tbe Aquiuaban and Re
pnblica even should those vessels arrive
off thie port. It is eaid, should the rebel
admiral be signalled, tbe gov
ernment vessels will put to sea
and trust to their superior speed
to escape being shelled by the
rebel cruisers. As already stated,
sbonld thie be the case, a revolution in
j Pernambuco, which will declare itself in
| favor of Admiral Mello, may be expected
■ as coon as the government ships are out
of eight of land. In fact, it is reported
tbat steps bave already been taken look
ing to a popular uprising in favor of the
insurgents, and the conspiretors are
only awaiting the signal to declare them
selves against Piexoto and openly fur
nish tbe insurgents assistance, which
they have previously been extending iv
secret to the adherents of Mello.
Should Pernambuco revolt, it is added,
it ia probable tbat other cities and states
in the northern part of Brazil will follow
tbe example.
NICARAGUA CANAL.
Report of the Preliminary Reorganisa
tion Committee.
New York, Jan. C—Frederick H.
Hatch, C. Amory Btevene and Wilbur F.
Herbert, jr., the preliminary committee
oi tbe Nicaragua Canal Construction com
pany, organized for tbe purooee of obtain
ing united action on tbe reorganization
have issued a strong protest against the
plan of reorganization recently submit
ted, of which the most conspicuous feat
urea say there is an entire absence of
any definite statement of assets and
value, or tbe actual condition of the
company, and exorbitant assessments
are demanded to keep it alive until
some further plan ie devised, which fur
ther plan would probably be an appeal
to the United Statta government. It
recites the extrrordinary request to put
the property in tbe handsel a receiver by
a committee appointed by the holders of
a few thousand shares, who, by tbe
terms of the agreement, are relieved
from any responsibility except for
tbe grossest maladministration, and
who, in the main, are those
under whose management the
property reached the hands of a re
ceiver. Tbe preliminary committee
submits tnat reorganization should be
a benefit to all the stockholders. A
plan of reorganization or adjustment is
being prepared which will be fuller,
franker and more eqitable than tbe one
now asked asßent to, and in a ahort time
this will be submitted to tbe stockhold
ers, and they be invited to join tbe ap
pointment of a committee composed of
men of national reputation, strict integ
rity and ability to reorganize tbe com
pany or adjust affairs in tbe best inter
ests of all the atockholdere.
DISORDERS IN SICILY.
Desolate Scenes In the Towns Where
Riots Bars Occurred.
Rome, Jan. 6. —Riforma declares that
important and compromising papers
have been discovered in tbe residence
of Signor Giuffrida, member of the
chamber of deputiee and head of the
Sicilian secret society, Faaci di Lavora
tori. Tbe discovery led to the eearch of
tbe residence of a city priest, Ureo,
cure of Santa Lucia. He was arrested,
together with his sister, nephew and a
sacristan.
Parlamento reaffirms the report tbat
attempts have been made to cut the ca
ble between Sicily and the mainland
and destroy the railways in Sicily.
Dispatches from Trapani state that
tbe towns in Sicily, in which riote oc
curred, present the most desolate spec
tacle. The damage done during the dis
orders is beyond calculation.
A telegram from Colonnn, in Calabria,
save a mob stormed tbe mayoralty and
smashed the windows. Gendarmes ar
rived and dispersed tbe mob. The mu
nicipal authorities have abolished the
octroi taxes. Similar scenes are re
ported in other districts of Calabria.
Peremptory orders have been cent to
the prefects to assure, by force if nec
essary, tbe application of the new
taxes.
Succnmbing- to Privations.
Chihujuita, Mex., Jan. 6 —By reason
of heavy snowß in the Sierra Madre

againet the rule of the Mexican govern
ment and in their weaked state and the
scarcity of provieions, have been unable
to cope wi to tbe severe cold. A number
of deaths have already resulted. Many
more will occur, practically exterminat
ing, them.

DONE GONE AND DONE IT.
Minister Willis Has Played
the Wrong Card,
His Attempt to 'Mie-Nig" Came
Entirely Too Late.
The Hawaiian Imbroglio in a Worse
Tangle Thau Ever.
Confirmation of the Report That Willis
Requested the Dole Government
to Resign—The State De
partment Annoyed.
To use a homely expression, with
which Minister Willis is perhaps not
unfamiliar, that worthy representative
of the administration at Washington in
Hawaii has "been done gone and done
it." The Associated Presa dispatch
from Honolulu a few days ago, via
Auckland, N. Z , announcing that Mr.
Willis, in accordance with bis' Original
instructions, had made a formal de
mand for tbe surrender of the provis
ional government and the restoration of
tbe queen, is fully confirmed by Captain
Munger of the Corwin, who has at last
bo far unbosomed himself ac to make
that' acknowledgment. This is all he
would say, and the official dispatches
which he brought and forwarded to
Washington have not yet been nub
liabed ; but tbe meager information at
hand ia sufficient to indicate that some
extraordinary things have happened at
Honolulu within the last fortnight.
It is not presumed that the provis
ional government has yielded, but on
the other band it is most probable thai
it has made a vigoroua demonetration of
its ability.to stand on its own merits
and an emphatic assertion of ita deter
mination to resent foreign interference.
It ia not improbable tbat Minister
Willis has ere thia received hie pass
ports, and as like as not some blood haa
been spilled if tbe Royalists, emboldened
by the atand of the United States gov
ernment, have made any attempt to re
gain their lost power.
Thia nnexpected action on the part of
the American minister, in view of hia
later instructione, has been like pouring
fat in the fire, and has no doubt further
embarrassed tbe adminiatration. Wash
ington dispatches indicaie that the stale
department officials and friends of the

HUNGER'S ACKNOWLEDGMENT.
San Francisco, Jan. 6.—Captain
Munger oi the Corwin baa at last been

Washington, Jan. 6. —It is considered
altogether improbable that the Corwin
left Honolulu without tbe reply of Pole
to the demand of Willis that the pro
visional government surrender iti
authority back to Liliuokalani. Minr
ieter Thurston arrived in Honolulu on
the Alameda, December 22d. The Cor
win left there December 24th. Dole,
therefore bad tbe benefit of Thurston's
counsel in framing a reply. A gentle
man of this city whose relationa with
both gentlemen is intimate, ex

reply follows closely the lines
of Thurston's letter of December 6th,
delivered to Gresham the day Thurston
left Washington. In that letter Thurs
ton contended that the United States
has acquired no jurisdiction over the in
dependent sovereign state of Hawaii. It
ib believed the points made by Thurs
ton, who is now advißing Dole, embody
tbe main points Dolo will cover in bis
reply to Willis' demand.
