WASNINoTON, Jan. 17.-After being in continuous session for 80 hours and after voting on several amendments to the elections bill the sanate at 6 o'clock te night adjourned till londay. In dourse of the debate the democrats gave notice that they proposed to keep up the pree est tactics end exhaust every pelarsment ary method for bringing about the defeat of this bill. There will prbbably be a republican canucus held Monday night to decide on what ection shall be taken by the party on the bill, or what position they will assume o i the proposed closure rule. There is a growing feeling that the party will be united suiclently sii carry through the measure. Those who heretofore opposed it are now with their party in many parts of it. They don't wantto oppose the bill with the demo crats. Certain It is the silver senators are desirous of some kind of action on the bill in order toget it out of the way, and their anxiety on this point is construed bythe holeful element into a disposition on their part to adops the speediest and most premiong meth.d of achlerving their desire, which If-it does not admit of their voting for the bill will at least wa.rant them is refusing to follow the lead of the demooratic minority in far as it would favor the adoption of dilatory WAassurTon, Jan. 17.-Chandler, of Massachusetts, chairman of the select committee on the Woldc's fair, today pre sented to the house the report of the sub committee that went to Chicago to ex amine into the condition of matters there in relation to the World's fair.

Tof report oppoets dual management of the fair, and says the World's golum bian commision has exceeded its pow ers by the appointment of officers and contmittees to conduct the managemeni of the fair in its executtve detail, which in our interpretation of the law be logs to the World's Columbias exposition and its offcers.

CalcAoo, Jan. 17.-With a crash heard for a mile, and smashing plate glass windows for a radious of three blocks, a sewer man hole exploded this avemnig at the Intersection of Jackson street and Wabash avenue when both thoroughfares were crowded with shoppers and work people. Dozens of people were thrown from their feet by the terrifio force of the explosion and a wild panic ensued among those left unstunned. A number of passersoby were injured by falling glass. In the excited crowd were many ladles. One woman, Mrs. CO. Rosa, (colored), was killed outright. Her death was a shocking one. She was stepping nearly upon the fatal man hole when the covering, With atertltng sudde.nnes, flew skyward and she was slammed blawaud, at against the curbing. The womsa's skull was split open and her brains were scattered about in a cirhle on the stone. A little four-year-old colored tby Who was witl her, strangely escaped injury, not receiving -, much as a scratch. F H. Mack ,eceived serious scalp wounds from a stone that was shot out of the pavement and had a painful gash In his wrist from a jagged piece of window lass. Up to a moment before the explosion police officer Moore who is regularly stationed at that corner, bad been stand ing on the man hole corner almost eon tinuously for hours. A right of way dis pute between teamsters caused him to change his position in the nick of time, and doubtless saved his life. Persons injured by the glaesaside from Mack were Gt. M. Staet, T. Sheldon, J. Carplers and E. W. Waddell. None were dangerously hurt except Stout, one one of whose hands was nearly severed from his arm. The offices of the Singer Sewing Machine company were most damaged in the neighborhood. Out of saxt) windows in the company's premi ses not one has a whole pane left. The Indlans Quite Doille.

DO WAasamtoro, Jan. 10.-While it is im possible to obtain, an uthoritative state ment from the president in regard to the senate silver bill, It is intimated very )O broadly by gentlemen who have con versed with him on the ubject that he Is 10 very much dissatiided with the metaire in its presest shape, and will oertaiil. y veto it unless i oundergoee material mod Sifidection before submitted to him for action. He is in entire accord with Sec retary Windom on the subject and the 0 latter's opposition to the free coinage of silver is a matter of record. 0 Pending action of some kind in the 0 house on the sliver bill, active discussion of the question has subsided and the 0 members ofthe house are awaiting de O velopments. The coinage committee has the key to the sittuation at pres 0 ent and the general disposition is to give the cotlntttee an opportunity to show what it means to do'before mak DlIng predictionsor ootlinitg the course to be pursued in the futurd. Some efort is I making on the part of the grld adherents to have the bill sept in the committee, but the silver men are sanguine as to I their ability to defeat such a move. At least two of the democratic members of the committee are gold standard men and each aide shows them great consideration in the present conaltton or ftairs. With ) their assistance the silver men could or der a report made to toe house and it is asserted this wilt be done without much ) delay, though it is not contended that these democrats will commit them. ) selvesto vote for the bill but merely tbt they will agree to secure consideration I for it The speaker entertains the same views . I as ever on the question of free coinage but there is reason to believe he is not prepared to go to most extreme measures in order to prevent the uatter coming up O I and to bear the burden of dissatisfaction which would thereby be created in the D stlver ring of the republican party. Be- e sides the republicans are not united on 0 the subject and are not likely to be. Carter's MIneral Lands B.ll. Representative Carter of Montana,from the committee on mines and mining, to day reported to the house with amend ments the senate bill to cure defects in the existing law with relation to mineral lands, etc. The bill as reported makes a number of changes in the existing law', among them being provilsions preventing the re-locaton of mining claims by per sons who neglect to perform annual as seesment work thereon; limiting the amount of placer ground that can be pat ented under one application to forty acres. defining mineral lands as lands < containing lodes or rock In place, hearing gold, silver, cinnabar or other material bearing metal in quantites suftcient to justify any reasonable person in expend. og money or labor thereon. It also per mite incorporated cities or townsites on mineral lands sulect to certain restric tions and provides that where mineral lands are reserved from operations of land grants, proof shall be submitted to the eoretary of intenror ef the character of the land for which the patent is sought under such grant. The Ctsano Bule. It was understood on the republican side of the senate tonight when the mo tion made by Walcott to adjourn was de feated that the extension of the senate f would not result In any measureable ad vancement of the elections bill. The real purpose was to convince a few re. publican senators who are of conserva I tive opinions that the old met.tod of pass iog measures obnotlous to the minorohy r by excess of sheer physical enduranpe is no longer effective. The majority feel r that after a short practice in the tactics tried today a few senators who have:re tained their bhllf in the old methods y will consent to support the clcure rle This measure is now on the calendar and it can be taken up at a moment's no(lce by an affirmative vote, and it is rumored that an effort may be made tomorrow. But just what may he done is uncertain. Talking Agal ut Time. 1. a. m.-Fauikner is still addressing the I senate on his amendment and has been now speaking about an hour. He seems good for several hours and it is pretty evident the democrats intend to oc3uy e- time. There are not more than a dozen senators on each side of the chamber put d there are large reserves in the cloak e- rooms andcommittee rooms resay to meet any phase of the question that may piesu o eut itself. Various efforts hare been made Id by Faulkner, but withoutt nsuccess, to goad e Stpooner, whom ihe said Hoar had left in hie.place while h hhimself retired for e frehment, to take port in the diseteslon.
