The Senate Not Ahle to Katie a
Quorum ? Important Presidential
Nominations Could Kot he Acted
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
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.
Fatal Wreck on the Chicago and North?
western Kallroad in Wisconsin.
Foiit Atkinson, Wis ,Aug. 23.?Three
men were killed in a wreck on tho Chi?
cago and Northwestern road near this
place at 12:45 o'clook this morning.
Tbreo others wore badly hurt.
The train was a freight, and was run?
ning at tho rate of twenty mllos an hour
at the time of tho accident. Tho men

tially rilled with hardwood lumber, and
they wore burled under tbo debris.

somewhere in Chicago.
Stephen Ontke, 40 years, Austin,

It Is Feared That He Cannot Live Muok
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. Klblen was injured in?
ternally, and Bender escaped with
bruises and cuts on account of the
ground boing soft.

is lying oft Capo Cod with a large c*rge
of wool waiting for tho tariff bill to be?
come a law. Sho was sighted several
days ago. Undor tho now law the cargo

the consignees will mako over SOO.OOO
by delaying tho vessel.
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?
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?
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?
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
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
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

as to tho alleged defects that occur in

said, hu will defer an 1 tpres ion of his
opinion on thia matter.
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.

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.

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.

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
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.

son Pope, a reform candidate for gov?

from the contest. He says that the
groat majority pf tho voters appear to

sayB 40,000 reformers and 33,000 con?
servatives are virtually disfranchised

Ho advises the 42,000 reformers to
