House Takes Final A Jtion on Sen
ate Coinage Substitute.
Is Defeated by 215 Yeas lo 90
Nays—Study of the Vote—Other
Business Transacted.
Washington, Feb. 15.—By vole of
215 to 90 the house Friday, after de
bating the matter for almost two weeks,
rlccided that it would not concur In
the senate's free-siIver-coinnge substi
tute for the bill of the house, authoriz
ing bond sales to maintain the gold re
serve, sales of treasury certificates fo
meet temporary deficiencies in revenue
nnd providing additional revenue for
the treasury. Nothing else was pre
sented in the course of the five-hours'
The Vote.
When the debate had been concluded
the previous question was ordered, pro
forma, and at the suggestion of Mr.
Dingley (rep., Me.), in order that there
nnght be no misunderstanding, it was
put in this form: "Shall the house con
cur in the senate substitute?"
The roll vas called amid extraordi
nary quiet, and at its conclusion the
cause of absence of those not prcs-ent
was stated by their colleagues, so great
was the anxiety to have the record
show the attitude of every member
toward the proposition.
A study of the vote shows that 25
republicans, 58 democrats, one silver
Ite and all the populists present voted
In favor of free coinage, and that 184
republicans and 31 democrats against
it. The democratic vote against free
coinage was six greater than the repub
lican vote for it.
The Might Session-
The attendance upon the evening ses
sion of the house was unusually large,
a division upon a disputed point show
ing the presence of 116 members. The
committee acted favorably on ten bilb
which at 10:15 were reported to the
house by Chairman Hepburn, and fiv
bills previously reported were passed.
When the bill to pension Hannah
Wright was reached Gen. Curlis (rep.,
N. Y.) asked unanimous consent to
withdraw it, briefly stating that the
morning after favorable action had
been taken by the committee of *he
whole, ho had( received word that the
old lady hnd died. At 10:85 o'clock the
house, finding itself without a quorum,
Amendments Agreed To.
Washington, Feb. 15.—Senate amend
ments to the following house bills were
agreed to in the house: Incorporating
the Daughters of the Revolution
granting a year's absence to settlers
on the Yankton, Sioux and Sisseton
and Wolipeton reservations in South
Dakota authorizing the lease of uni
versity and school lands of Arizona.
For Frequent Settlements.
Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, introduced
two bills to further strengthen the sys
tem of accounting for government
funds which he inaugurated two years
ago. One of these bills directs all gov
ernment officers to turn in funds within
80 days from the time of receiving
Delinquents to Bo Reported.
Another bill introduced by Mr.
Dockery provides that all delinquent
officers shall be reported to congress
on January 1 yearly. It appears that
the present law, while apparently di
recting these reports, leaves a tech
nichal loophole for avoiding them. In
order to do away with this loophole of
escape Mr. Dockery's bill is more
definite and comprehensive than the
existing law.
Wants to Know.
A resolution by Mr. l»ay (rep., N. Y.)
was passed authorizing and directing
the judiciary committee to ascertain
whether executive officers of the gov
ernment, in several departments there
of, can refuse to enforce, execute, or
comply with the provisions of any act
of the congrcss of the United States
DII the ground of its alleged unconsti
tutionality or for other reasons and to
report to the house by bill or other
wise. Mr. Kay explained that the ques
tion was one of great importance. If
the power existed, certain executive
officers might ict at defiance the laws
of congress approved by t.lie chief ex
icutive officer of the nation.

Have Faith in the lteport.
London, Feb. 15.—Every effort is be
ing made by the Itoyal Geographical

is the result of well-calculati plans
and not unexpected."
Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. 15.—Sergt.
Julius H. Fredericks, one of the sur

E. Hile, who was naturalist on the

speaking of Dr. Nimsen's reported dis
covery: "I linve not the slightest doubt
that Dr. Nansen was successful. I feel
perfectly satisfied that the report is
authentic and that lie has reached the
coveted goal." Prof. Hile said that
while the commercial world would de
rive no benefit from the north pole be
ing located, it would be of inestimable
value to the world of science.
London, Feb. 15.—The correspondent
of the St. .Tames Gazette at St. Peters
burg telegraphs that the report of Dr.
Nansen having discovered the north
pole is confirmed.

of good families and there was no rea
son for the belief they had trouble.'

home of the Martins and was last seen
as he left the street car. Hall an hour
later the tragedy occurred. There was
nobody in the house wlion Jones went
there but the girl and her mother. The

dying. The girl had a bullet hole in
her neck and was bleeding profusely,
the mother was shot in the forehead
and also in the breast, and had been
killed instantly by the shot in the head.

Jones appears to have gone to the
house, nnd after shooting the two wom
en went outside, crossed the street and
shot himself before the neighbors came.
He has a bullet from his 38-ealiber re
volver in his brain and had died in
stantly. When lie was found his heart
had hardly ceased beating.
Lea is still alive, but losing strength
fast-, and cannot possibly live. Every
effort has bt.cn made to bring her buck
to consciousness so that she might tell
something of the tragedy but it will
avail nothing.

the two women, is a doctor and coroner
of Appanoose count}'. He had no fam

Afraid of Consumption.
People who lose flesh are in danger
of consumption. In many cases loss
of ilesli is the first symptom of tho
drearl disease.
Light weight is too often a sign of
some wasting diseas9 which gets its
first start from indigestion. Cure the
indigestion and health, strength and
flesh will be rapidly regained.
All physicians are agreed the most
important thing to be done in such
cases is to improve the appetite and
digestion and if this cannot be done
there is very little hope, for strength,
flesh, pure blood and strong nerves
can only come from plenty of whole?
some'food wefl digested.
This is the reason so many physi
cians recommend Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets, because of their wonderful
invigorating and nutritive properties.
For lose of vigor, headaches, consti

safest, most natural cure. And there
is a good reason for their success.
They are composed of the natural di
gestive ccids and fruit essences which
every weak stomach lacks.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets rapidly
increase the weight, the hectic flush

the skin assumes the hue of health,
night sweats cease, the cough dies
away and the emaciation is lost un
