For Domineering the House Fails I
for Once
A Undertakes to Bulldoze Democrats and Re
publicans Alike by Treating the SHyer
Bill as His Own
WASHINGTON D C June 18Special I
telegram to TUE HERALD The Reed pro
gramme was defeated today and the House
resumed the control of its own business I
wa the first time this session that Speaker
Reed has stood helpless before a House
which refused to be bound by the gag of the
previous question and insisted on ac tally
debating the matter before it The speaker
tried one of his bold assumptions of power
and i he could have draggoncd his own fol
lowers intovsupporting him it would have
been a clever trick of political merit when
lie referred the silver bill to the committee
on coinage without the consent of the
House As I telegraphed you last night
lie took the heroic course to smother it He
took a position in which no Democrat
whether a believer in free silver or a gold
basis could sustam him He sought to
draw the party line and t place on the Re
publican side of it the opponents of freo
silver and on the other side the whole
J Democratic party The assistance which
7 the eastern Democrats stood ready to ren
der him in any fight against free coinage ho
deliberately threw away in the hope of mak
ing up the loss from his own party In this
ho faded Many of the eastern Democrats
those who would have looked upon the
fight Detwcen the silver men and the
speaker with absolute indifference a they
did not much care which won although
they could not but resent the speakers
extraordinary action towards those who
voted to leave the silver bill in the posses
sion of the House But as one of them
Mr Turner of New York expressed it
after adjournment I am a good free
coinage man until the votes come to be
taken on the bill The House refused to
7 leave the silver bill in the hands of the
J tl committee on coinage and adjourned with
out making final disposition of it
The vote was not a test of the relative
strength of the friends and opponents of
free coinage for no Democrat who opposed
free coinage would vote to sustain Speaker
Reed and on the other hand a number of
free coinage Republicans did vote to sus
tin him The probability is that the bill
will soon get into conference and that from
that conference will be evolved a bill
which will make the purchase of 4500000
ounces monthly mandatory and make the
notes legal tender while taking away from
the secretary a discretionary power
in the matter of redemption Such a
measure Senator Teller informs me to
day will be entirely satisfactory t the
free coinage men They will he added be
satisfied with nothing less preferring t
return empty handed to their constituents
upon the record made by them and try it I
over again in the next Congress
question of concurrence in the Senate
amendments Rules which it was claimed
were intended to allow the majority to do
business and produce results were now
prostituted to the base purpose of gaging
the majority
Bland of Missouri held that no other
course was open but t strike the errone
ous reference of tho bill from the journal
That would place the bill on tho speakers
table and again allow the House to get
at it
Butterworth of Ohio said the time had
not come when the Republican party was
willing to abdicate its control over the
business of the House The question
would be put next fail not in time to affect
this question
McMillin of TennesseeBut will be in
time for this question to affect it Demo
cratic applause
Continuing Butterworth held that tho
real question before the House was
whether or not the speaker referred the
bill to the committee not that it was or
was not properly referred A question
arose whether the spaaker was authorized
to make the reference He contended that
he was so authorized Rule 21 gives the
speaker authority r refer public bills to the
appropriate committees
Springer argued that the silver bill was
not properly unacr the rules before the
House yesterday because the business on
the speakers table had not been reached
Butterworth said the pending proposi
tion sought to unhorse the Republican ma
jority and to put tho Democratic minority
in the saddle The Republicans should not
abdicate in favor of the Democrats until at
least they should determine they were un
able to conduct the business of the major
ity Republican applause Ho was in
favor of an early consideration of the silver
Anderson of Kansas while declaring
himself an earnest advocate of free coin
agemaintained the correctness of tho speak
ers ruling He wanted to ask the chairman
ol the committee on coinage weights and
measures whether the committee would
give the House a chance to vote upon the
Conger of Iowa chairman of that com
mittee replied that so far as he was personally
sonally concerned he would make every
effort to secure legislation on this subject
Crisp said the committee on rules might
interfere as it did toprevent a vote on the
free coinage of silver
Mills of Texas said the point ho made
was under the existing rules that the silver
bill remained upon the speakers table to
be disposed of as the House and not speak
er should determine
Breckinridge of Kentucky argued that
i the speaker went beyond the scope of his
authority iu the reference to the bill his
action was not only erroneous but illegal
aud void Tho speaker in rendering his
decision said he desired members of the
House to divest themselves of the idea that
any unusual procedure had taken place in
connection with this bill The reference
of bills of this kind and in this way had
been a daily occurrence since the adoption
of the present bills The chair desired also
that the house should know that this par
ticular transaction did not take place in a
corner In the regular course of business
the journal clerk informed the speaker
that among the list of bills to be referred
under the rules to the appropriate committee
was the silver bill with the Senate nmnnd
ments The speaker had been asked
whether he had any particular direction to
make in regard to it Knowing the bill to
be one of grave public importance and
anxious that he should have all possible
light on the subject the chair had consulted
Democratic members of the committee
on rules Blount and McMillin and the
gentlemen from Missouri and Illinois
Bland and Springer not for the purpose
of throwing any responsibility upon them
but in order that he might upon by any
light they might be able t give After
conversing with those gentlemen it had
seemed clear to the chair that the rules of
the House covered the question and that
his duty was to treat the bill a he would
treat any other Accordingly the clerk
was not directed to make any change in
regard t reference The House must bear
in mind that this was not a question of policy
I not satisfied with the reference directed
by the speaker under the present sytem of
rules the House could change the system
of rules and the House could change the
reference did this bi contained provisions
whicn under the rules ought to be con
sidered in committee of the whole There
was a provision in tho original House bill
by which certain bullion was to be pur
chased and certificates issued thereon Tho
Senate amendment was an amendment for
free coinage and for this an appropriation
was mare I anything was clear in par
liamentary law it was that the bill was one
of those which would bo properly con
sidered in committee of the whole and this
being so it was the obvious duty of the
chair to refer to it in the same manner in
which hundreds and thousands of bills had
been referred during this session The
point of order raised by the gentleman
from Illinois Cannon put the chair in an
embarrassing position because it proposed
action by the House and was a declaration
that an error had been made in parlia
mentary law It was proposed to erase
from the journal a question of fact While
the chair might have some doubt about the
point of order he felt it was a question the
House ought to determine and he would
therefore overrule the points of order and
submit the question to the House
Cannon moved to table Mills resolution

Springer raised the point of order that

The speaker replied that was for the
House to decide and directed the clerk to

The clerk proceeded while Springer
amid the applause of his party colleagues
entered a vigorous protest addressing the
speaker sajing You can ignore the

Mills offered a resolution reciting that
the order of reference made by the speaker
referring the silver bill r the committee
on coinage weights and measures was
incorrect and against the rules of the
House and made without authority under
the rules and resolving that the jour
nal be corrected by striking therefrom this
Cannon of Illinois argued that the Sen
ate amendments would require to be
ut t con
sidered in committee of the whole and that
being so it was the speakers duty to refer
it to the committee on coinage weights
and measures The resolution sought to
strike out the recital of this fact
Mills of Texas characterized Cannons
position a the boldest most reckless and
absurd position he ever heard maintained
l a legislative uoay under the constitu

House not by the speaker or his clerks
He charged the Republican party
with being false to its pledges on
the matter of silver and said the
Democratic party would give people free
unlimited coinage of silver On the
hustings people would ask the Republicans
why when they were sent here as friends I
of silver they voted t the death to pre

The Shipment of Gold to Germany
NEW YORK June 19A local paper
says The recent shipment of 2234000 in
gold to Germany 750000 of which went
on the steamship Columbia this morning
has been followed by the circulation in
banking circles of several disquieting
rumors one reaching government officials
to the effect that tho shipments are on
direct orders trom the German chancellor
One of the leading bankers here said
The recent advance in exchange in Ber I
lin and the lower rate of sterling exchange
in Germany arose from the policy of ox
tending the German export business and at
the same time placing such restrictions on
imports as to practically pIohibit them
The reason for this policy i i that the Ger
man government is hoarding gold and no
matter what excuse the bankers acting as
its agents may make it is well under
stood where orders comefrom and where
the gold goes to
I is estimated that 10000000 will be
taken by Heidelbach Ickelhelmer Co
on present orders from this city and Eng
lish bankers said today that sterling ex
change and exchange on Paris was just
at the gold shipping point and an y further
advance in the rates would bring out large
export orders The worst feature of the
situation is the fact that the gold bars in
the assay office which two years ago
amounted t 90000000 have decreased to
832500000 I they should be all absorbed
a drain on the double eagles in the sub
treasury will follow and the banks will lose
part of their special holdings The opinion
on Wall street is freely expressed that
the law allowing the withdrawal of gold
bars for export should be amended and the
treasury officials should insist on paying all
checks in coin This would limit the ship
ment of gold to a small figure for it would
take wide difference in exchange for ship
pers to realize a profit in shipping coin
Gold bars are of known fineness and
charged for accordingly On the other
hand gold coin often fallsl per cent below
the standard of fineness and in addition
there is always a loss by abrasion
or Last March has Done Great Damage to the
Countrys Fruit Crop
Special to TiE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK June 19 American commis
sion merchants say that tho cold snap of
March last extending from Florida to Can
ada and taking in the eastern and middle
stats nipping the blossoms of trees will
result in a large shrinkage of tho fruit sup
ply Mr Goodsell informed your reporter
that the peach crop of New Jersey and
Delaware which last year amounted to
considerably over n million bushels would
this year hardly reach five hundred bush
els and these would be of inferior quality
He also said that the large shrinkage
though not to such a great extent in some
directions extended over the entire fruit
supply of New England and the middle
states and that tho loss to agriculturists
was estimated at not less than four or five
millions of dollars
Ten said Mr
years ago Goodsell
this blow would have been irreparable
and the country would have had to endure
a fruit famine with what grace it could
but this year the gate of deliverance is
opened in California The crop of that
state this season is unusually large and
the unprecedented energy expended in
fruit culture during the last decade has
produced a supply equal to the present de
mand As an indication of the increased
yield of fruit in California Mr Goodsell
instanced Riverside which shipped in 1SSO
fifteen carloads of fruit while in 1888 the
fruit shipped from there amounted to 920

Blames Amendment to the Tariff Bill
WASHINGTON Juno 10The President
has transmitted to Congress a letter from
Blaine upon the subject of a customs union
and the recommendations in respect thereof
by the PanAmerican conference Blaine
suggested an amendment to tho tariff bill
1f ii
> >
authorizing the President to declare the
ports of the United States free to the pro
ductions of any American nation upon
which no export dues are charged so long
as such nation shall admit free to its ports
the manufactures and products of the
United States
The President in transmitting the com
munication says So often and persist
ently has it been stated that our tariff
laws offered an surmountable barrier to
a large exchange of products with the
LatinAmerican nations that I deem it
proper to call especial attention to the fact
that more than 87 per cent 01 tho products
of those nations sent to our ports are now
admitted free I sugar is placed upon the
free list practically every important ar
ticle exported from those states will be
g en untaxed access to our markets ex
cept wool Tho real difficulty in the way
of negotiating profitable reciprocity treat
ies is that we have given freely so much
that would have been of value in the
mutual concessions which such treaties
imply that I cannot doubt however that
the present advantages which the product
of the near and friendly states enjoy in
our markets though they are not by law
exclusive will with other considerations
favorably dispose them to adopt such
measures by treaty or otherwise as will
tend to equalize and greatly enlarge our mu
tual exchanges It will certainly be time for
us to consider whether we must cheapen the
cost of production by cheapening labor in
order to gain access to South American
markets when we have fairly tried the
effect of established and reliable steam
I communication and convenient methods of
money exchanges There can bo doubt I
think that with these facilities well estab
lished and with a rebate of duties upon im
ported raw materials used in the manufac
ture of goods for export our merchants
will be able to compete in the
ports of the LatinAmerican nations
with those of any other country I after
Congress shall have acted upon the pend
ing tariff legislation it shall appear that
under the general treatymaking power or
under any special powers given by law our
trade with the states represented in the
ponferenca can be enlarged upon a basis
of material advantage it will be promptly
Secretary Elaine today received a tele
gram from the chairman of tho National
Millers convention Minneapolis which
says the millers are greatly agitated over
the report that an additional duty of SO
cents per barrel will be imposed Amer
ican Hour in Cuba thus prohibiting
tho American flour trade and asking
information Secretary Blaine replied he
had no official advice but if correct the
advance would make the duty 3 per
barrel and was evidently intended by
Spain to be a prohibition He added It
has been constantly said heretofore the
last six months that the western farmers
demand an unconditional repeal of the sugar
duty I is within the power of the west
ern farmers by encouraging a system of
reciprocity to secure in exchange for the
repeal of this duty the free admission of
their bread stuffs and provisions into the
markets of 40000000 of people including
Cuba In my opinion this is the most pro
fitable policy for the western farmer
A Very Thin and Improbable Story Concern
ing the Presidents future Intentions
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK Juno 19A Press special
from Washington says ExCivil Service
Commissioner Oberlys oran prints a
double leaded large headed story contain
ing the following alleged exclusive infor
mation from the White House A gentle
man who enjoys the most intimate relations
with President Harrison and with whom
tho executive talks concerning important
matters in the most confidential manner
called at the White House one day during
the past week The conversation turned
upon the silver question and the probabil
ity of the passage of a free coinage bill by
Congress The Presidents visitor urged
upon him the benefits of such an acb and
the great popularity to be gained by sign
ing it as well as the advantages which
would accrue to the Republican party by
reason of such legislation The President
listened to his friend patiently and seriously
ously and then replied in these terms
lam not here for the purpose of acting
in the interest of myself or of my party
but in the interest of the whole country
and the people When my term is out I
expect to return to Indianapolis and re
sume tho practice of the law
These declarations were made in the
tone and manner characteristic of Presi
dent Harrison and which indicated plainly
to his friend that ho had thought long and
deeply on the subject and had made up his
mind upon it Having arrived at a delib
erate determination in this way the
Presidents decision is unalterable 5 i can
not be shaken by persona appeals nor can
he be driven from it by partisan considera
tions So his friend came away fully con
vinced that President Harrison was not
and would not be a candidate for renomi
nation and reelection but that he had
reached the final and settled conclusion to
serve out his term doing what seemed best
to him in all matters as they arose and
then to return to his quiet life as a practic
ing lawyer in the courts of Indiana

ridicule this talk Chairman Belden of the

Vivisection The Hell of Science
Specialto THE HERALD Ezsiainer Dispatch
BOSTON June 19 Vivisection is the in
quisiti onthe hell of science The cruelty
which the human or rather the inhuman
heart is capable of inflicting is in this one
word Below this there is no depth This
word lies like a coiled serpent at the bot
tom of the abyss
This is the powerful way in which Cole
aol Bob Ingersoll began a long letter to
Philip M Peabody of this city The Colo
nel further remarks We can excuse in
part the crimes of passion we take into
consideration the fact that a man is liable
to be caught by whirling passion and that
from a brain on fire the soul rushes to
crime But what excuse can ingenuity
form for man who deliberately with un
accelerated pulse with the calmness of
John Calvin at the murder of Servitus
seeks with curious and cunning knives in
the living quivering flesh of a dog all the
throbbing nerves of pain
In the remainder of the letter Colonel
Ingersoll alludes to physicians who practise
vivisection as scientific assasians and ho
says he does not wish to touch the hand of
a man who would do such a thing
