VAILANT THE VILLAIN. An Anarchist Scoundrel Threw the Paris Bomb. HE IS CAPTURED IN A HOSPITAL And Makes a Full Confession of His Crime. EXPLOSIVE AIMED AT DUPUY. the Fiend Expresses Regret That It Missed Him. STORY OF THE CHAMBER HORROR Paris, Dec. 10.— After a day of great excitement following the explosion of the bomb in the chamber 1 of deputies, the authorities have announced that they have the bomb thrower in custody. His name is Marclial. He is an anarch ist, and has made a full confession. News to the effect that the bomb throw er was in the hands of the police was received at noon today, but the report was not confirmed until the official an nouncement was made this evening, and now Paris will sleep easier and await the developments of the morning. Marclial, it appears, was among the in jured persons taken to the Hotel Dieu. the large hospital on the north of Placedu Ap.irvis, Notre Dame. Marclial soon fell under the suspicion of the authorities, and. pressed by the police, he decided to make a full confession, and did so, gloiying in his dastardly crime. The discovery ot THE ANARCHIST FIEND was made in the following manner: Among the persons questioned by the police yesterday evening was a man whose nose was almost blown off by the explosion of the bomb in the chamber of deputies yesterday afternoon. The suspect gave the name of Vailant, and said that be lived at Choisy le Hoi. This man, who was attended by the physicians summoned to the refresh ment room of the chamber after the ex plosion, was taken to the Hotel Dieu, after being examined by the prefect of police. At the hospital mentioned, the suspect was carefully watched by four detectives. It was noticed that he gave the name of Marclial when his "pedi gree" was taken upon entering the Hotel Dieu. This was reported to the authorities and confirmed the suspi cions already entertained, and several detectives were immediately started out with instructions to spend the night in establishing the iden tity of Marclial, and to furnish a complete report of the man and his surroundings. This was done. The detectives worked quickly and cleverly on the case, and by morning the prefect of police was in possession of several police reports concerning the suspect, which, upon being joined together and considered, made it clear to the authori ties that the man in the Hotel Dieu, with his NOSE ALMOST BLOWN OFF, was a dangerous anarchist named Vail ant, who was born at Meziers, a strongly fortified town of about 5,000 people in the department of Ardennes. Vailant.it was also reported by the police, is thirty-five years of age, and had lived a roving life. During this roving Vailant passed several years in Buenos Ayres, and in 1887 he returned to France and married, lie now has two children. Vailant, however, soon deserted his wife. Still according to the police reports, since 1884 Vailant has been identified with branches of the socialists and with reg ular anarchists. He made himself prominent by the incendiary nature of his speeches and" by his bitter de nunciations of the liourgeoise. and eventually became a member ot the revolutionary socialist group of the eighteenth arrondissement of Paris. This, in brief, is the cream of the report of the detectives who worked up the case during the night. Early in the day M. Lepin, the prefect of police, the public prosecutor and the examining magistrate visited the Hotel Dieu and had a long interview with Vailant, who claimed innocence and was quite indig nant at the nature of the questions put to him by the different officials. Finally the public prosecutor said to the sus pect: "Your name is Vailant, and not Mar chal, as claimed when you came to the hospital." After a moment of hesitation the sus pected man admitted his identity and confessed that he had thrown the bomb, which in exploding INJURED A HUNDRED PEOPLE. When questioned as to his reasons for throwing tlie bomb, Vailant replied de fiantly: "I wished to deal a thoroughly dra matic blow at the institutions of the country and wished to cause great ex citement. I endeavored to aim the. bomb at M. Dupuy, the president of the chamber of deputies. I glory in the act, and 1 only regret that my hand swerved, and the bomb did not explode near the mark." This bold and defiant statement from the lips of the bandaged prisoner caused a sensation, even among the stern offi cials of the law, who were accustomed to startling situations and used to all kinds of surprises. There was so much hatred in the anarchist's tone as lie delivered his defiance and glorified in his crime that even the public prose cutor started and seemed to grow pale. Vailant in appearance Is a big blonde man with a heavy moustache and a hardened expression of countenance, which seemed to loom up with a strange fire as he described with much gusto how the bomb was used. The bomb saucepan was loaded with, he said, a number of nails which he found on the floor of the chamber. Inside the sauce pan was a tube with a compressed cen ter. In the tube were picraci acid and prussiate of soda, these being separated at the point where the tube was com pressed by a small ball of cotton CHARGED WITH SULPHURIC ACID which at a given moment would be con fumed by the sulphuric acid thus al t lowing the other explosives to mix and cause an explosion. The ■•' anarchist then described in detail a variety of the objects which, he said, would be found in his lodeings, 70 Rue Dagurrea, where Vailant lived under the name of Mar clial. "But," Vailant continued, "if you are goin to search my room, you had better be careful in disturbing things unless you want to be blown to pieces. I ad vise you especially to be careful in handling a box, which is full of ex plosives." In consequence of this declaration M. Lepin and Meyer, the judge, accom panied by the commissioner of police, when to the lodging and ascertained that Vailant had eight days previously hired a furnished room in the place. Upon going to the room the authori ties found a keg of nails similar to those scattered about the chamber after the explosion. Continuing the search, the authorities found the trunk mentioned by Vailant and opened it cautiously, but they found that it did not contain any explosives. The articles mentioned, as well as a number of others, were found in Vailant's room, and were taken to the station pending further examination. The officials charged with the investigation of the explosion ascertained that Vailant has been DECIDKDLY MYSTERIOUS in his movements recently, and that he was out a great deal and rarely spoke to anyone. Vailant continues to be ut terly indifferent as to the consequences of his crime, and speaks of it as though it didn't concern him in the least. Ex perienced detectives, whose auty it is to devote themselves entirely to watching anarchists and reporting upon their doings and sayings, express the belief that Vailant had a number of Accom plices, but Vailant replied to all ques tions on this subject with the remark: "You need not put yourself to the trouble of searching tor accomplices. I alone did the deed." The Associated Press correspondent this afternoon visited the chamber of deputies, where Berillon and Girard were investigating the explosion. The scraps of the bomb, which had been found and examined are mostly pieces of iron and small nails. The authorities have some scraps of tin which were thought to be pieces of a sardine box, but prove to be pieces of the tin which formed the shell of the bomb. The bomb was loaded with dynamite, and it was evident it was not charged with gunpowder, owing to the great force of the explosion. The ceiling of the cham ber ot deputies near the gallery from which the bomb was thrown is PEPPEIIED WITH MARKS * made by the flying nails. A window near the roof is broken, and one of the benches occupied oy the doorkeepers is perforated by a large piece of iron. The drapery of the gallery was badly tat tered by the explosion. A. Herisse, deputy from the Hie et Vilaine, who was seated on the extreme left benches, had a narrow escape. The collar of his overcoat was torn by a nail, but he was otherwise uninjured. M. Girard said that in his opinion the bomb was constructed so as to explode when it turned bottom upwards. On a column are marks of two bloody hands. The room which yesterday afternoon was converted into an infirmary looked this evening like a hospital. On all sides were blood stains and a strong odor of disinfectants could be noticed, not only in the room, but in all the apartments connected with it. At the Hotel Dieu Vailant has been placed in a separate room, where he is watched by several detectives night and day. Lei nore, the engraver, who was at first suspected of being the man who threw the bomb, has been released from custody, but it is known six other persons are still in custody and will not be released until the police are in possession of all the facts in connection with this out rage. The opinion is expressed that several of those who are now under ar rest are accomplices of Vailant. The examining magistrate is known to have obtained at least two important deposi tions regarding the AUTHORS OF THE CP.IME. Suspicion rests especially on four persons, one of whom is a man named Vincent, who twice gave a false ad dress. The others also gave false ad dresses and made contradictory state ments to the magistrate, who passed the night in examining the suspects. Last night the police made a search of the house of a man suspected and claim to have obtained valuable information. The condition of the injured is satis factory, and it is now hoped that no lives will be lost from the explosion. All the newspapers, including the Radical and Socialist press, make ener getic denunciation of the outrage. The Autorite and the Libre Parol say the responsibility of yesterday's explosion should be investigated thoroughly and just punishment meted' out to the authors. The Radical and La Justice say the authors- of such an outrage must be punished. The Journal dcs Debats claims it was the fault ot the Radicals that the bill against socialism prompted by the recent outrages was not voted. The Figaro demands special repression for these special crimes. The Soleil says that the government is sufficiently armed and that it need only apply the existing laws. ' The Matin is of the opinion that it is not sufficient to strike the arm which threw the bomb; but it is necessary also to strike the body directing the arm. The Petite Repub lique, organ ot the Socialists, disclaims all connection with the author of the outrage, who is described by the paper mentioned as A SENSELESS COWARD. Deputy Lemire is still confined to his bed, and hasn't been able to remove the bandages from his wounds. In an in terview, Lemire said that he hoped soon to be able to resume his duties. Several of the wounded deputies were visited i by the Associated Press correspondent, and they were also found to be pro gressing toward recovery. Among tne deputies visited was M. Henry Boucher, deputy from the Vosges, who was found in bed, surrounded by friends. "You see," said M. Boucher, "1 am not dead. My wound is slight, which I owe to the fact that I was standing, , being able to leave the chamber. 1 was : the only person on the other side of this chamber who was struck by portions of the bomb." ; M. Boucher thereupon opened a small' pocketbook, from which he took a horse SAINT PAUL MINN., MONDAY :, MORNING DECEMBER 11, 1893. nail, the piece which struck him, and, showing it to the correspondent, said: "Look at this charming souvenir. 1 shall keep it as a remembrance of yes terday's narrow escape." A number of other deputies were called upon, and were found to be on the high road to recovery. They all spoke great praise of M. Dupuy, presi dent of the chamber, for his ADMIRABLE COOLNKSS, and gave to him the credit of checking a serious panic. Count Trevenuc, in describing his experiences to the As sociated Press correspondent,remarked: "After the explosion I was stunned for a moment and then 1 found that my coat was torn, and that my body was slightly scratched by some nails which burst from the bomb. 1 was conversing at the time with Count Sanjuianis, who was injured by the explosion. The sen timent here is in favor of additional laws to regulate the sale of explosives and severer punishment for the crim inal use of dynamite. Another cabinet council will be held tomorrow, when the subject of dynamite outrages will again be thoroughly considered. M. Dupuy received today a countless number of letters and telegrams of congratulation upon his escape and of admiration for the courage and calmness which he had displayed in such a trying emergency. During the day a large number of deputies gathered at the chamber, the main ' entrance of which is still closed. At a meeting of anarchists to day several of the speakers warmly commended the action of "Valiant, and all rose and drank to the explosion of yesterday. One of the speakers at this meeting said during the course of his remarks: "The bourgeois will certainly see the use of such deeds." The Social- ists held a meeting this afternoon six miles from this city, and were addressed by a Socialist who has recently been elected. Jourdes Guesde, as well as all the other Socialist deputies, were pres ent, as were many women in sympathy with socialism. The house where the meeting took place was decorated with red flags. During the course of the meet ing Jourdes, who represents the Goron do, denounced the outrage in the chamber, and said the Socialists would not co-operate with the anarchists. The Socialists, M. Jourde continued, did not desire to annihilate society ; they only wanted fuller liberties. Deputy Guesde said: "After the recent victories of the Socialists yesterday's outrage must be deplored. Our enemies will take ad vantage of it to check us, whom they confound with anarchists. Our only aim is to push our propaganda and to obtain a victory in the chamber." The police say that Vailant has made > the following additional confession to them: "1 waited tor more than an hour before throwing the bomb in the hope that a favorable chance would present itself to cast it in the spot 1 had picked out. At length, thinking that an op portune time had arrived, I arose from my seat in the gallery and hurled the box, aiming it at President Dupuy's table. As I did so, a woman who was seated in front of me resented my leaning over and pushed me back ward. I was thus prevented from throw ing the bomb exactly as I intended. I did not intend to kill any one," Vailant calmly and coolly added, "but only to wound a hundred and fifty or two hun dred of the deputies. J was especially anxious that M. Oasimir-Perier should be among those injured by the explo sion." Mine. Gerard, the landlady of the Ho tel de I' Union, says that when Vailant arrived at her house he only brought with him a small traveling bag. The newspapers in Berlin, Vienna, Madrid and Rome ail condemn the bomb throwing. DOES THIS SETTLE IT? Another Crack at the Italian Cab inet Crisis. Rome.

Madrid, Dec. 10.— cabinet coun cil has approved of the conduct of Gen. Martinez Campos at Meiilla, and de cided to renew his power in full. The latest news from Meiilla is to the effect that a friendly native who visited the Kabyles says that they declared that throughout the whole of the fighting with the Spanish forces they only lost eighty-three men, while the Spaniards, they claimed, lost double that number. The Kabyles also declared that they would not yield if Gen. Martinez Cam pos insisted upon their laying down their arms. They announced, however, that they would consent to obey Muley Araaf, provided that the Spaniards would promise not to enter their terri tory. UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE. A Meeting for Its Promotion Held in Vienna. Vienna, Dec. 10.— Under the auspices of the Women's Suffrage association a public meeting was held in the old town hall tonight to favor universal suffrage. One thousand men were pres ent, including several hundred wealthy bourgeoises. Fraulein Fickert, the vice president, declared that the bour geoise ladies, in order to obtain their rights, must co-operate with the Social ists.

HOW SUSPECTS /.RE HANDLED IN SENATE GALLERY. .-■ £££? : ■ r THEY ABE CLOSELY WATCHED And People With Handbags, Bun dles or Umbrellas Are Not: Allowed to Enter Anarchist Nichols Has a Narrow Escape. From Rough Treatment by a London Mob. Washington, Dec. 10.— The officials of the United States senate are taking every precaution 'consistent with the dignity of that body to prevent an' attack from the galleries similar to that made In the French chamber '. of deputies. No person is permitted to enter the galleries when the session is "in progress carrying any sort of extra package, and suspi- < cious-looking characters are closely scrutinized when about the senate chamber or in the corridors. The order against the admission of men to the gal leries with hand-bags, umbrellas or miscellaneous bundles was pro claimed immediately after the ; at tack upon Russell Sage a year or two ago, and has been in force ever since. The senators have never seemed i to fee) any apprehension on this score,: but the sergeant-at-arms argues that it would be a very easy matter for a crank with a fancied grievance "' to enter the galleries and toss a shell into the chamber below, and the temptation with so many men of public note within reach might be more than some of the species might be able to resist. Very seldom in the history ot the senate has there been any demonstration from the gallery. j London, Dec. 11.— A dispatch to the Standard from Vienna says that a Vi ennese journalist, while in London a short time ago, saw several anarchists and was informed by them that a new plan had been drawn up providing for iuture explosions. Barcelona, Dec. 10. — A special police corps has been formed here to combat anarchism. The outrage at Paris has revived discussion in Spanish political circles. Spain, it is said, will propose to other countries anti-anarchic. measures. . K3DH NICHOLS IN" DANGER. A London Anarchist lias a Nar-; NICHOLS IV DANGER. jiid.m Anarchist Has a Nar row Escape. London, Dec. 10.— The police force < in Trafalgar square today was larger than usual in view, of the rumor that anarchists intended to hold another meeting, but whether frightened, by the poliC9 demonstration, '. or owing to the excitement cre ated. . by the 'Paris »J dynamite bomb throwing, only a few persons ap peared. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon, however, a crowd of about 500 men as-' sembled. It was mostly made up of sightseers, roughs, and a few venders of socialist literature. The police ex tended a cordon around the Nelson' monument, and just as soon as Anarch ist Nichols arrived the crowd became menacing and hooted him. Nichols fled, and the police with the utmost' difficulty protected him from the vio lence of the mob. Four Italian anarch ists shortly afterwards made a move ment as if to hold a meeting in the square, but were obliged to run away. Owing to the hostility of the crowd, which had evidently been" excited by the news of the Paris outrage, each of the venders of socialist literature was followed about by two policemen, apparently with the object of protection' against the crowd. There was great excitement for one moment when the, police shouted "Stop!" to a man who ice shouted "Stop ! : ' to a man who was carrying a mysterious-looking bun dle. The man fled, followed by part of the crowd, but escaped. The square was cleared at 4:30 p. m. There was no trouble of a serious nature. -;• COMING TO ST. PAUL.

SHE HAUNTS 'HIS OFFICE And Tells the Clerks That He'll Have No Turkey This Christ mas—Declines to Use a Bomb, bat Says She Has Something In Her Stocking That Will Fix Him. New York, Dec. 10. — Mrs. Delia Keegan, seamstress, whose suit before Judge . Bookstaver in the court of com mon pleas to recover $100,000 from Rus sell Sage for breach of promise to marry her in 18fiS or 1869 was .dismissed Nov. is, through the expiration of the six-year limitation in the statutes of this state, has determined to press her suit outside the court. Three times in the last week the old woman, shabbily attired, violent In manner, and appar ently half-crazed, has visited Mr. Sage's office at Broadway and Rector streets, has insisted on seeing Mr. Sage, but has been ejected by his clerks. Since the Nordhoff bomb incident, it has, in fact, been difficult for any one to see Mr. Sage.>. The outer office/where brokers' boys deliver messages, has a high iron railing, and business is car ried on through little square openings. Inquiries for Mr. Sage are met with fur ther inquiries as to the nature of the caller's business, and if the errand is distasteful to Mr. Sage negotiations are carried on through a third person. This is a sufficient reason why most persons who desire to see Mr. Sane in his busi ness hours find it impossible to make their way into his private room. This, however, is not the reason why Delia Keegan was not able to make her way to Mr. Sage's presence yesterday. Her manner was so insolent that the clerks in the outer office feared to per mit her to see Mr. Sage lest she should kill him. She threatened to do so, if words were threats, and vowed she had a knife secreted. She indicated her purpose of producing the weapon, but the clerks withdrew, leaving her In the outer hall, whence she made her way to the street. Mrs. Keegan made two visits to Mr. Sage's office yesterday. The first was in the forenoon early. She wore a black bonnet, a shawl and a brown dress. She demanded to see Mr. Sage, but a clerk at one of the little windows refused to take her message. After ar guing with the employe for a few min fig with employe satisfactory re-, and receiving no satisfactory re plies the seamstress 'went away. When she returned in the aft ernoon Mrs. Keegan . was much ex cited. She declaimed that she was a poor, wretched woman, while Mr. Sage was rolling in wealth. "But he'll have no turkey this Christmas," cried, Mrs. Keegan. ?• f'By the gods, I'll fix him yet. .No turkey for Russell." Some of the clerks behind the high railing turned pale and fumbled their penholders ncr- v ously. They turned paler when Mrs. Keegan cried: "There won't be any bomb in this. I got something in my stocking that will fix him." Three clerks mustered courage to run into the little outer office and hustle Mrs. Kee gan into the hall.' As to what Mrs. Kee gan intended to do accounts differ. Some employes says Mrs. Keegan attempted to take a kuife from her stocking. Oth ers declare that she was showing that Mr. Sage was cruel in permitting her to endure poverty. Whatever was Mrs. Keegan's object she will keep to herself, and the door of Mr. Sage's office was closed against her. Mr. Sage was seen at his residence. No. 506 Fifth avenue, and asked whether he had seen Mrs. Keegan, whether he had learned of her visits to his office, and of ber threats to take his life. Mr. Sage pooh-poohed Mrs.Keegan's visits.

J How do you account for her actions, Mr. Sage," was asked. "Well, the doctors say she is crazy. I have not seen her lately, and don't want to. There is nothing in her law case anyway." HURLED FROM A TRAIN. A Would-Be Robber Gets Much the Worst of It. Bloomington, HI., Dec. 10.— A cur ious attempt at robbery of an express car occurred late last night at the cross ing of the Lake Erie & Western and the Illinois Central, a mile and a half south east of this city. As the west-bound Lake Erie express train stopped for the crossing the glass of the south door of the United States express car was smashed, and Messenger Weekly, look ing up, saw a man's arm pass into the opening, the hand reaching for the latch. Weekly jumped up and rushed to meet the intruder. The messenger was unarmed, having laid his revolver beside a pile of packages at the other end of the car. As the door of the car opened the intruder grabbed the mes senger by the throat. In the struggle which followed the messenger proved the victor, hurling the robber from the train to the ground. None of the other trainmen had noticed the struggle, and the train "proceeded without further molestation Messenger Weekly's face and neck were badly scratched and ; bruised. There was from $5,000 to $6,000 in sight in the car, as the messenger i was ready to make a transfer at Bloom- I ington union depot. LIBELED A SCHOOL MA'AM. IA.

THE ANTI-OPTIONS BILL TO BE RE VIVED THIS SESSION. MINNESOTA SENATOR TALKS. He Says He Will Fight for the Measure to the End. of the Chapter— He Insists That It Is " Something the Farmers Need Very Badly in Their Busi ness. Special to the Globe. Washington, Dec. 10. — Senator Washburn thinks the times are rrpe for the re-introduction of the anti- option bill. Said the Globe correspondent to him: "Senator, when is it your purpose to introduce the measure?" "I do not exactly know," was his response. "But it will be introduced in both the house and senate when the signs are propitious. Just now the country is all torn up over the tariff question, the Hawaiian complications and the disturbed financial situation. Those matters will gradually settle themselves, and then we will broach the subject ot option dealing once more." "How do you look upon the present congress? Is it favorable or unfavor able to tbe measure?" "Favorable,— decidedly favorable. I think it will be much easier to pass an anti-option bill through both the senate and house in this congress than it was to handle the last congress. When the time arrives, Mr. Hatch in the house and myself in the senate will introduce the measure practically as it was form ulated two years ago, and it will be pushed steadily to an issue. I think the hard times will militate in its interest. The great puDlic is gradu ally believing that the systems of wholesale gambling pursued in the name of 'business' are largely at fault in bringing around financial disturb ances. I would not assert that option dealing was chiefly to blame for the business depression of the last few months; but Ido proclaim that gamb ling, in whatever form it takes, is con ducive to business disaster and financial 1 failure. The wide prevalence of option gambling has seared the consciences of the men engaged in it, and has thus been an influence to provoke commer cial disaster. Business interests might not be seriously affected by it, for in active business all men are prone to be reasonably honest. But the gradual destruction of the good name of our markets; the depressing results that it has upon the produce of our farms and the general and univeral demoralization of legitimate traffic— these are tho fruits of gambling in options. The system . must be' overturned,' .arid , ; I i am ; frank, to say ~ that 1 am ready to take the - responsibility of ' being the uncompromising enemy of the whole system. While I am . repre senting the people I shall continue to wage unceasing warfare upon option gambling." "If you succeed in passing the bill will President Cleveland sign it?" "1 do not know. 1 have never con sulted with the president on the sub ject. I think I have the right to pre sume that President Cleveland is an honest man. Ido not believe he would refuse to sign a measure as palpably in the interest of the producers of this country as the anti-option bill. Mr. Cleveland is a man of sturdy convic tions, but I believe that he.is In hearty sympathy with the men who work the farms and bear the burdens of the na tion. But whether President Cleveland may be for or against us in this . matter is of secondary importance tome. My duty is to follow the thing to the end, and do everything in my power to con summate its passage. If it shall then be killed by a veto 1 shall have the con sciousness that 1 have done my duty, anyhow." Bark Sodium Wrecked. Philadelphia, Dec. 10.— bark Sodium, which sailed from Philadelphia Nov. 8, has been totally wrecked at Sables d' Oionues, her port of destina tion. Capt.

Gen. J. B. Doe Has Been a Wis consin Hustler. Jaxesvii/le, Wis., Dec. 10.— J. B. Doe, who resigns the post of adjutant general of the state militia to become assistant secretary of war, was born about thirty-eight years ago. Gen. Doe has had time in eighteen years of practice at the bar to build up a state i? jik -.'•.** . ' • '"'gen. J. b. Doe, '. • [Assistant Secretary of War.] reputation as a brilliant speaker and a good lawyer. For years his ambition has been to organize Wisconsin's Dem ocracy on lines similar to those of Tam many in New York. His work and that of three or four others had the greater part to do with "turning out" the Democratic "war horses" in the state and bringing young men in control of party affairs. In recognition of this he has enjoyed full sway for three years in the dispensation of such Democratic J patronage as fell to Southern Wiscon i sin's share. Gen Doe is a military en- I thusiast. He is- one v . of the few head officers of the Wisconsin national guard who has been in thorough earnest. His work for the guard has been effective, and he leaves it in far better shape than when he took command. mm* Adlai Going; South.

It Will Soon Go to Its Place on the Calendar, BUT KILGORE WILL PROTES7 And the Measure May Go Through by Saturday. COMING TARIFF^ LEGISLATION. Washington, Dec. 10.— The sadden collapse of the bankruptcy bill in the house last Friday has somewhat disor ganized the programme in the house for the coming week, which it was sup posed would be almost entirely devoted ,to that subject. As it is, the house will begin the week tomorrow with no defi nite work in view. The tariff will not come up for debate until a week from I tomorrow, the 18th, at the earliest, although, if the present intention of the Democratic members of the ways and means committee holds, the bill, that is the customs features of the bill, will be reported on Wednesday. The majority report will be filed with the bill, but it will be some days later before the Republicans have their report prepared. The bill tor the admission of Lit h, which consumed the morning hour on Friday, will again come up during the morning tomorrow. The Republicans will probably continue their filibuster" ing programme, and at the conclusion of the hour tomorrow the privilege of the bill will end and it will return to its place on the calendar. Mr. Kilgore, of Texas, who is in charge of the measure, says that, in that event, he will ask the committee on rules for a day for consideration, and he expects that BEFORE SATURDAY NIGHT the bill will have passed the house and have been sent to the senate. Tuesday the committee on judiciary meets, and at is expected that it will immediately report with a favorable recommenda tion. Mr. Bailey's bill for the estab lishment of a voluntary system of bank ruptcy, although the house gave a crushing majority against the Torrey bill, which included both the voluntary and involuntary features, the prevailing opinion is that an overwhelming senti ment in the house favors a single vol untary bankruptcy law, and Mr. Bailey thinks that it can and wilt be passed without debate. The Bailey bill differs radically from the Torrey bill. It cre ates no new officials except trustees, is limited in its application to those who desire to take advantage of its provis ions, and is distinctively temporary in its i character. It is framed, as Mr. Bailey says, to cut two holes, one to let the honest debtor out and begin busi ness life anew; the other to catch and hold the debtor. There are no bills of importance on the calendar. The most important, per haps, is to protect FOREST RESERVATIONS, which has already had some considera tion ana will probably be disposed of this week. It gives over a large amount of Western lands, and is being heartily opposed by the Western representa tives. Upon the house calendar the most important bill is the famous Billy McGarragahan claim to the rancho Pauoche grande. It is thought it will also be disposed of this week. It is not improbable also that the Hawaiian affair may reach the arena of debate in the house in some form before the week closes. The contest over Senator Hill's federal election repeal bill has from the beginning of this congress been expect ed to furnish more genuine political talk than any likely to be undei discussion. Having succeeded during the Fifty-first congress in preventing an enactment ol the force bill, the Democrats, now thai they are in full control of all branches of the government, seek to follow up this triumph by wiping from the statute books virtually all the laws permitting federal interference at general elec tions, and as the party North and South is united upon this policy, and as the bill has already passed the house ol representatives.it would seem that there is every prospect of its success. Natu* rally the Republicans as a party will ANTAGONIZE the bill. Some Republican" senators are strong ly opposed to the proposed legislation, and will exert every legitimate power to prevent favorable action. While they recognize the futility of their efforts in preventing the passage of the bill, they nope in the end to' gain a party advantage by putting their views on record. Senator Hill's motion will be antagonized by a counter motion from the Republicans to revert the bill to the committee on privileges and elec tions, which will offer a substitute. There is a possibility that Senator Hoar's motion may carry. If it should, the future consideration of the bill may be postponed, but the Republican triumph will be only temporary. The Hill bill is now with the committee on the judiciary. There is likely to be considerable debate of a partisan char acter before the result can be determ ined. The programme for the week also promises a speech by Senator Mor rill on the financial features of the president's message. The venerable senator from Vermont generally treats the seriate to a speech early in the ses sion on some financial topic. The Ha waiian question will again during the week receive the attention of the sen ate. It is even possible that it may be taken up to the displacement of other orders mentioned. The past week has developed the fact that a large number of Democratic senators stand ready to defend Mr. Cleveland's policy. Conse quently the discussion of this topic will not be one-sided when it shall occur. The senate calendar, while not very long, contains a sufficient number of bills and resolutions to keep that body entirely employed. There will be mora or less executive business. In all prob-» ability adjournment will be taken again, on Thursday until the following Mon* 1 day.
