THEIR TRUE NATURE
ITejmlilicatiK Filibuster on the Ari
zona ami New Mexico Bills
Washington Dec 14The House was
deadlocked for two hours today oy the
refusal of the Republicans to vote on
a motion to go Into committee of the
whole for the consideration of the Ari
zona statehood bill
The Democratic leaders decided this
morning to proceed with the consider
ation of the Arizona and New Mexico
bills and dispose of them before the
holidays
holdas
r The Republicans do not relish the
idea of bringing these Democratic ter
ritories into the union and at the re
quest of their leaders refrained from
voting save those from the newlyad
mitted states of Washington Wyom
ing Montana Idaho and the Dakotas
The Democrats expect to have their
own quorum present tomorrow
The McGarrahan bill was called up
during the morning hour but was fil
bustered against by Sayers of Texas
chairman of the appropriation com
mittee
Immediately after the reading of the
Journal Dockery called up the bill to
Improve the methods of accounting In
the ptistofUce department The bill
abolishes the postal note reduces the
schedule rates on orders
rte money order ap
proximately to the scale fee charged
by the express companies and makes
othe t changes The bill was passe
without debate
The bill limiting the time under
which the claimants to property under
th1 donation act of 1850 must appear
to Jan 1 1895 and giving the present
occupants of lands a preferential
claim in case title under the act of
1850 was not perfected was taken up
Tl1 rewa some debate by Hermann
of Oregon and Mr Van Voorhees of
New York The latter Intimated that
some private interest must exist In the
bilit that Jj soiight to deprive one
class of claimants for the benefit of
another He declared it would be an
other Des Moines river case
Hermann stated the old
Hermal stted claimants
had had forty years to confirm the
titles It was not designed to dispos
c sins any claimants The bill simply
required the original claimants or
their heirs to come forward and pro

VOORHEES BILL

Washington Dec 14 Senator Voor
hees has introduced his long promised
financial bill I provides for the
coinage of the silver seignorage for
the purchase and coinage of 2000000

agee of the saignorage for the retire
Igorage retre
ment of paper currency of less denom
ination of 10 for the retirement of
all gold coins of less denomination
than10 and for the appointment of
an international commission
The bill is not received with any
great degree of favor by either the silver
ver advocates or the opponents
In regard to the inference in some
quarters that the administration fa
vored the bill Voorhees today said
My bill is not the result of one word
of consultation and I Cc tainly do not
claim to represent the administration
in introducing i I do desire how
ever to help the treasury out of its

fair board of awards has struck a bal

disclosing for the first time that the

exhibitors will only receive 37 per cent
Chairman Thacher says this showing
will put an end to the criticisms made
by the foreigners and taken up In
this country that the foreign exhibit
ors were not receiving full considera
tion He anticipates that American ex
hibitors will now be heard from and
will feel the board has not been suf

associates have been governed by the
findings of the judges and the latter
are responsible for giving the foreign

Government at Hatvall Foreiern
Crimes and Criminals
London Dee 14 There was quite
an exciting sitting of the House of
Commons today arising out of the
announcement made by Gladstone that
owing to the present state of business
the government proposed to adjourn
on Friday December 22 and meet
again the following Wednesday
Sir John Dorrington conservative
moved to adjourn in order to call
attention to the Backward state of
public business
The opposition intended this motion I
as an Indication of the alleged general
incapacity of the government in con
ducting business and expressed the in I
tention of pressing the motion to a
division
Sir Richard Paget conservative sec
onding Dorringtons motion was loudly
cheered especially when he declared
the present condition of things in public
affairs was becoming positively intol
erable
These attacks finally brought Glad
stone to his feet and he replied
warmly to the onslaught of the op
position and amid frequent interrup
tions declared the house must meet
again as he had indicated qr the
agn
parish councils bill must be abandoned
Balfour conservative leader ac
cused the government of trying t
trample upon the opposition who Bal
four said were little below govern
ment supporters in number
After a heated debate during which
Gladstone was greeted with groans
from the opposition and cheers from
his supporters cloture was moved and
I the motion to adjourn was rejected
165 to 115

forth loud cheers from the govern

EXCITEMENT IN THE REICHSTAG
The Spanish Treaty of Commerce on
Its Second Heading
Berlin Dec 14 There was much ex
citement in the Reichstag when the
Spanish treaty of commerce was in
troduced for second reading i
Manteuffel attacked the general and I
commercial policy of the government
whose treatment of the agricultural
classes encouraged agrarian agitation
Von Caprivi made a vigorous reply I
and said the true Russian treaty would
be made at the expense of husbandry
inasmuch as the grain producing state I
must receive concessions through it
The chancellor added he only opposed
the method of agitation resorted to by
the farmers alliance and asserted that i
it was not conservative to appeal to 1
majorities against the authority of the
government The latter must seek
support from large portions of the
population and not from any individual
party and would take support where
ever it could find it The remark of
Caprivi to the effect that the deputies
should not be influenced by the masses
caused a decided sensation Alluding
to the currency the chancellor said
it was Impossible to take any step in
that direction unless England joined
in i
Both the Spanish and the Servian
treaties passed their second readings
by large majorities
CAPRIVIS SPEECH
One of the Most Pointed Since the
Days of Bismarck
London Dec HThe correspondent
of the Post Berlin says Caprivis
speech in the reichstag made when he
was fresh from an audience with the
emperor was evidently in the highest
spirils and treated the reichstag to a
speech of such point and nerve as has
not been heard by that body since
Bismarck retired to private life
In reference to the currency ques
I tion the chancellor denied the buying
power of gold had risen high enough
to injure German husbandry The
Prussian minister of commerce was to
make inquiries on the subject extend
ing into the interior of Australia and
Africa and the result Of his inquiry
must be awaited The head of the
English government Gladstone had
most pointedly expressed his antago
nism to bimetallism and therefore a
change in the attitude of England
could not be hoped for I he himself
continued the chancellor were a fanatical
were
natical bimetallist he would not un
1
der the present circumstances move
a single step in that direction
IT WAS NEFARIOUS WORK I

London Dee 14The Standard re

The knot of merchants speculators
and officeseekers who planned and car
ried out the revolution in Hawaii and
constituted themselves the provisional
government are as might be expected
furious at President Cleveland for hay
ing decided that the United States
must decline to accept the islands of
fered them as the result of nefarious
intrigue by American citizens No
other decision could have been expected
from an honest honorable man but it
has astonished the group of adven

thusiastically hailed by a grateful
country for what they had really done
only for personal advantage

A Big Meeting Held in Cooper Union
Last Night
I
New York Dec 14 There was
scarcely standing room in the Cooper
Union naint the antiTammany
meeting
Thomas Van Bur n grand nephew
of exPresident Van Buren was chosen
chairman
The resolutions adopted cited the
misgovernment by the rulers of Tam

Colossal growth of wealth among the
leaders with the present depression in
business and said it aroused feelings
of suspicion and distrust which en
forces the propriety of rigid Investiga

honest citizens to relieve the city from
such rulers regardless of either state

TO THE PEOPLE OF
THE UNITEH S1i11S1
Address from the American
League at Honolulu
AGAINST THE
PROPOSED c ACTION
Their Seasons Why Cleveland Skomld
Not Interfere
I the President Insists OR the Res
toration of the Queen the League
Will Appeal to Congress and to
the People of the United States
at Large for What They Consider
to Be Their Rights on the Islands
lands
Seattle Dee HA Feek a Seattle
contractor just arrived from Honolulu
is the bearer of an address to the
people of the United States from the
American League at Honolulu
The address protests against Presi
dent Clevelands assumption that the
provisional government should ceaSE
to exist because he disapproves of the
proposed union with the United States
It insists the present government
of Hawaii has the same right to exist
that the United States had after the
successful revolution of 1776
The provisional government was es
tablished not by citizens of the United
States but by people born and raised
on the islands or have resided there
many years and only organized for the
overthrow of the queen after all hope
for redress had ceased to exist
The will nnvn character of those
at the head of affairs gives positive
assurance the government will be hon
esty administered and the rights of
the people protected Should the pres
ident of the United States restore the
queen to the throne the league would
appeal to Congress and the people of
the United States to prevent so great
a crime against liberty and good gov
ernment
I Hawaii is not wanted in the great
sisterhood of states we feel we have
the right to vigorously protest against
the reestablishment of a corrupt mon
archy

TIE ATCHISOJf FINANCES
President 1 Reinhart Makes q Satis
factory Statement
New York Dee 14 President Rein
hart of the Atchison Topeka Santa
Fe wljo returned from Europe on the
Teutonic today gave the following
relative to the financial condition of
the company The Interest on the gen
eral mortgage bonds of the Atchison
company due January 1 will be paid
I seems hardly necessary to make this
statement because the doubts as to its
payment have in my judgment been
created solely by speculators Th
Atchison company has large payments
to make from time to time The public
knows that since the reorganization
the Atchison has met all obligations
promptly and every statement I have
made in relation to such payments be
fore they matured has been confirmed
by facts
