The Armor Plate Frauds Occupies tbo At? tention of the Hoom for a Short Time. The Senate Not Ahle to Katie a Quorum ? Important Presidential Nominations Could Kot he Acted Upon. Washington, Aug. 23?The one item of interest in the proceedings of the House to day was tho animated colloquy between Cummlngs (Dom., N. Y.) and W. A Stone (Hop., Pa.) Jovorthe roport of tho committee on n-val affairs upon the investigation into the alleged armor plate frauds. The report was accompanied by a joint resolution, which was agreed to, directing the Secretary of tho Navy to have plateB now on certain ships re? moved and subjected to ballistic tests to determine their quality. TheBO are tho plates in which defects were shown in the investigation to have existed, and the teats were suggested to determine whether or not thoy are up to contract requirements. Stone asserted that the Carnegie Com? pany while just as anxious for the in? vestigation and tests as the House com? mittee had not boen accorded fair play in the investigation. Cummings undo a short responso, declaring that the Carnegie Company's Interests had been more carefully attended to in the In? vestigation than those of the Navy De? partment, which had also, he said, been on trial. One or two private bills were passed and at 1:10 o'clock tho House adjourned until to monow. No Quorum In the Senate. In most respects the session of the Senato to day was a close counterpart to that of yesterday. No business what? ever was attempted?even the reading of Wednesday's journal and tho pre? sentation of a message from the Presi? dent having boen prevented on account of a quorum. A report of tho Bergoant-at-arms as to the execution of tho order of yester? day directing him to "request" tho at? tendance of absent Senators was p u sented and read, and then a more im? perative order was given to that oflloial directing him to "compel" the attend? ance of absontecs, and Colonel Bright immediately set about that dillioult if not impossible task. As there was no prospect of his succaeding in it to day tho Senate, after an hour's weary wait? ing, adjourned until to morrow. Assistant Secretary Pruden reached tho Capitol shortly after 1 o'clock with some Presidental nominations said tobe important, but owinp to the lack of a quorum they could not bo laid before the Senate, and were taken back to the White House.

Baltimore,Aug.23.?Ex-State Treas? urer Stevenson Archer, who, after serv? ing a five-year term in the^penitontlary for embezzling State funds, was par? doned by tifcvernor^ Brown, and whose physical condition necessitated bis re? moval to the city hospital for several days after his release, returned to tho' hospital to day from his home, near Belalro, in a much worse condition, and is now believed to be dangerously 111. It is likely he will have to undergo & serious surgical operation. His trouble is a bladder and kidney affection, from which he has but very slight chances of recovery. He is now advanced in years and broken in spirit, and the affection from which ho is Buffering will probably end his life. Bnrled Beneath tho Car. Haobkstown, Md., August 23.?A Norfolk and Western freight train in backing a oar at Shephardstown, West Virginia, about noon to day, oollided with a oow throwing one car down an embankment. Conductor B. D. Bendor, of Hagerstown, and Brakeman J. C. Klblen, of Shenandoah, wero buried under the car.

Sho was sighted several days ago. Undor tho now law the cargo oancomo in free. It is ostimated that the consignees will mako over SOO.OOO by delaying tho vessel. fOKE, VA., FRIDAY M< WILL HE SIGN THE BILL? Great Uncertainty in Regard to the President's Action. Washington, Aug. 23.?All interest at the Capitol to-day centered In the tariff bill. Both Houses are meeting in a porfunotory manner and adjourning without any serious attempt at legisla? tion. The Bresidnnt's return naturally gave rise to no little .peculation as to bis ac? tion regarding tho matter. When it was known that Speaker Crisp had seen Mr. Cleveland to day tho former's com mlttne room becomo at onco tho inecca tu which Republicans and Democrats alike turned their footsteps in order to learn tho President's intention. All of the number wore disappointed so far as any positive Information was concerned, for all the Speaker would say was that the Bresldent would probably allow tho bill to become a law without his signa? ture. He said the President bad not told him wbac ho should do, but from his general conversation regarding tbo bill tho speaker made the foregoing deduc? tion. The President, it is said, has not hesi? tated to express to somo of his callers his objections to the bill. These objec? tions aro as strong to-day as they worn when his famous letter to Cbairman Wilson was read in the House moro than a month ago None of the gentle? men who called asked him if be pro? posed vetoing the bill. They are so en? tirely convinced that he will not pursue so drastic a course that they felt such an inquiry would be an ineult. The constitutional limit cf ten days in which the bill may become operative without the President's signature will be reached at midnight next Monday. Should a veto be withheld an adjourn? ment of Congress will lollowon the next day. Some of tho Democratic leaders who saw tho President this morning havo urged him strongly to feign tbo bill. Thoy have roprosontod that any other course would discredit the measuro and tho party, and that it would bo a serious handicap to them when on tho stump during tho October campaign. The President is reported to havo heard theso gentlemen pationtly, and to have shown by his responses that he was not Influenced by their arguments. In somo casos they returned to the Capitol feeling that after all thoro was a possibility that tho President's signa? ture would be affixed to tho moasnro, "but," as one of tho members expressed it. 'there is only a possibility." Equal uncertainty also Jexlsts whether President Cleveland will send a mesaago to Congress concerning tho bill. He has been urged not tr> do so, but to with? hold anything he may choose to Bay upon the subject until :he raassein biago of Cungress next December, wbon it can be incorporated in his annual message. Secretary Carlisle spent all tbo after? noon at tho Executive Mansion discuss? ing with the President tho new tariIT bill It was stated yesterday that thej-Sec rotary would make public a statement as to tho alleged defects that occur in tbo tariff bill, but tbU afternoon, it is said, hu will defer an 1 tpres ion of his opinion on thia matter. TUB Mill TIA PAID. Governor Matthews Bon own the Money on His Own responsibility. Chicago, August 22?A special from Indianapolis, Ind., says: Three Indian? apolis banks, tho Merchant's National, Fletcher's and the Indiana National, advanced 340,003 to Governor Matthews yesterday ?0 pay oil the State militia for services during tho riots at Ham? mond in tbo mining region. There was no regular fund in tho Stato treas? ury from which the amount could be legally drawn, and State Auditor Hen? derson, on tho advice of Attorney Gene? ral Smith, declined to issue warrants without a special appropriation by tho legislature to cover tho amount. It is understood that Governor Mat? thews mortgaged his fine stock farm in Vermillion county to ?he banks in order to secure tho loan. Ho will appeal to tho next legislature to reimburse him. While tho governor has little to fear that ho will lose anything in the end by his self sacriQco trie re ia a bare possi? bility his disinterestedness will cost him tho amount of tbo loan. If tho farm and Populist element show up as strong in the fall elections as they claim they will have tho controlling voto in tbo legislature, and then will result a serious fight over the question of allow? ing the governor's bill. His KjeslKht L>.stroked. Jki-'Bksoxvim.k, Ind., Aug. 23.? Eyman Parks, 3d year old son of Dr. Floyd Thomas, director of tho Indiana prison, lost his eyoBight yesterday through tbo explosion of the pnuematic tire of his bicycle. Parks was en'route to Corydon, when in somo mannor the air tube of his wheel exploded. After having adjusted a new one, Parks com? menced to inflate tho tube and this, too, exploded. Fragments of the tire struck Parks in both eyes, from the effects of which he has become totally blind. Hoth Sides Stlll'Kirm. New Bedford, August 23.?The fourth day of the great woollen and I cotton mill strike opened with a now I element in tho battle?the State board of arbitration. Both sides remain as firm as ever, apparently, neither in? clined to yield one iota. The State board of trade arbitration committee has failed to sccomplish muoh and now tho only visible hopes for a new settle? ment lies in the meeting under Mayor Brownell's call to-night. Britannia Defeats the Satanlta. Weymouth, August 23.?In a raco under tho auspices of the Royal Dorset Yacht Club to-day tho Brittanla de? feated tho Satanita"by ljtf minutes.

The Magicians Are Rapidly Nearing Last Place. They Were Good Fluking for tlio Crow* Yesterday ? Clearly Outclassed ? Fltz uaorris lilt Hard and Foorly Supported, lturus veil a Ragged Came nt Short. Richmond, Aug. 23.?When tho fourth Inning had closed at \V09t End Park to day pretty noarly everybody in tho multitude know that the Mushrooms were not strictly In tho game and that the heavy hitters who wore sombre clothes had made up thoir minds to add another victory to their phenomenal record during the past two or three weeks. The score was sixteen to eight when McGettigan closed the game with nice long fly to Gettlnger, the great center fielder, and the 2,000 enthusiasts, who really worship nothing higher than a pretty two bagger or a nicely stolen base, wero perfectly satisfied. They ex? pected the home team to win. Indeed they .never thought for a moment that the nine representatives from the center of real estate gravitation could beat the Crows playing ball. Roanoke was outclassed. True Tate's disciples put up by no means as genuine an article as they are capable of doing, and at times they played in a listless sort of a way as though there was really no necessity for special exertion Tboy thought tbev could do up their adver? saries and there wts no reason why their best efforts might not bo reserved for the Cockade City yotingsters. Keonan for the Crows did very effec? tive work in tho box. Tho visitors found him for only twelve hits with total Of sixteen bases. Fittmorris received very poor support. Burns, at short, did about as ragged as one would caro to soe outsldo of a kin? dergarten. Lie succeeded in making five ugly errors. Iiis throwing was awkward and ho fumbled tho ball noarly evory timo it wont his way. Following is tho scoro. UICIIMOKU. ItOANOKE. n. 11. ro. a.e. h. n.r.o.A.K. Kiiln, ss . :i 1 0 1 rj!
