LEADERS DISGUSTED At Democratic Absenteeism at This -mportant Time, f.ND THE REPUBLICANS JUBILANT Their Success in Blocking" Progress. HOAR AFTER BLOUNT'S SALARY. Questions Right to Appoint a Commissioner. SENATE ADJOURNS TO MONDAY. Washington, JaD. The Demo crats today suffered a repetition of their experience of yesterday. Again they were unable to produce a Democratic quorum, which the Republicans insisted they should have before the tariff de bate could proceed. The high water mark today was 170, 12 more than yesterday. but 29 less than the requisite number. It was claimed by the Democratic whips that over 180 Democrats were in the city, and that some of those who did not appear today are lukewarm in. their support of the Wilson bill, or openly lighting some of its features, and have deliberately decided to offer no aid toward getting the bill before the house. One Democrat, Mr. Sperry, ot Connecti cut, although present, acted with the Republicans today, and refused to answer to his name. The Democratic leaders are very much disgusted over yesterday and today's proceedings, and assert most vehemently that there is no excuse for the heavy absenteeism at this important time, saying that every Democrat understood when the holiday recess was taken that the programme was to take up the tariff bill the day congress reconvened. The Republicans are naturally very jubilant over the success that has attended their efforts TO BLOCK TROGKKSS up to this time, although there is some manifestation of dissatisfaction with the course of Mr. Boutelle, whose attempt to launch the Hawaiian debate yester day aud today has cutoff all prospect of consideration of that subject until the tariff is disposed of. Had lie permitted the arrangement suggested by Mr! Mc- Creary and agreed to oy Mr. Hitt to be entered into yesterday, tomorrow and Saturday would have been devoted to Hawaii, and the same blockade could have been effected in the house with ref ence to the tariff by refusing to vote to go into the committee of the whole for the consideration of the Wilson bill. It is almost certain that the Democrats will have a quorum present tomorrow, but two days have already been wasted, and this will probably necessitate an extension of the limit of the debate be yond Jan. 17, on which day the pro gramme contemplated a FINAL vote. There was some talK today of carry ing out the original programme to vote on Jan. 17, and reducing the time for general debate to four days, and debate under the live-minute rules to seven days. With this idea in view some of the Democrats who desired to speak wereapproacbed.andasked if they would consent to speak very briefly with the privilege of extending their remarks in iheß ecord, but several of them threat ened to vote against the bill unless they were given the opportunity to tell the house in open session why they opposed it in part or as a whole. It is likely, therefore, that the time of the debate will be extended at least two days to make up for the two days that have been wasted. The committee on rules will consider the question tomorrow morning. Some communications were laid be fore the house, and the speaker an nounced the reappointment of Messrs. Wheeler, of Alabama; Breckinridge, of Kentucky, and Hitt, of Illinois, as the regents of the Smithsonian institute. Immediately thereafter the fight over the Hawaiian matter was precipitated by Mr. Boutelle, of Maine. Although the Democratic members of the ways and means committee WERE WILLING to make an arrangement to devote two days, tomorrow and Saturday, they de cided, after the wasting of yesterday through the persistency of Mr. Boutelle, to shut the Hawaiian debate out entirely until the tariff bill was disposed of. Ac cordingly, when Mr. Boutelle called up his privileged Hawaiian resolution this morning, Mr. McMillin, on behalf of the committee, raised the question of con sideration. Mr. Boutelle was sarcsstic and Mr. McMillin rather contemptuous in the exchange of shots before the vote was taken. By a rising vote of 58 to 124 the house decided not to consider the resolutions. The yeas and nays were then demanded. The eaii of the house developed the presence of 240 members. The vote then recurred on the question of considera tion raised by Mr. McMillin against the Boutelle resolution. The Republicans again remained mute and again the quorum disap peared, the Democrats again mustering but 150 votes. This time four votes were cast in the affirmative. After a consultation the Democratic leaders decided that it was useless to continue the effort to secure a quorum today any further, and on motion of Mr. Wilson, nt 1:10 p. m., the house adjourned. HOAR WANTS TO KNOW by What Authority Blount Was Appointed. Washington, Jan. 4.— The session of ; the .senate today was significant In two - respects. Senator Hoar, of the Repub - Hear. side, Introduced a resolution call ing on the secretary of tiro treasury for his authority for the payment of Special . Commissioner Blount for his Hawaiian services, and Senator Gray, of the Democratic side, served notice that . Tuesday next the Democrats would in sist on taking up the federal election bill, ami continuing with its considera tion until the measure should bo finally disposed of. The object of Senator Hoar's resolution i.s manifestly to call into question the right of tho president i to send a personal commissioner to Hawaii, or, indeed, any commis sioner without the concurrence of the senate tirst obtained by the confirmation of his nomination, and this object is. of course, most effectively reached by demanding the authority of the secretary of the treasury for the payment of Commissioner Blount for his services and expenses. The notice of "Senator (hay indicates that the DEMOCRATS AKK DETERMINED to dispose of the federal election bill at an early day, and before it can pos sibly be hampered by the tariff bill or any other party measures which mis-lit come over from the house demanding early consideration through motives of party expediency. The bill will be taken up Tuesday, and will continue the paramount question in the senate until finally disposed of. Senator Berry, of Arkansas, called up the house bill relating to the dis qualification of registers and receivers of the United States land offices, and making provisions in case of such dis qualification, and, after amendment, the bill was passed. An interesting colloquy took place over a suggestion of Senator Gray, of Delaware, that the senate proceed to the consideration of tiie federal election bill. Senator Chandler (Rep., N. II.) asked whether this was merely for the purpose of allowing soma senator to speak or for general consideration. "For the general consideration," said Senator Gray. "The views of the minority are not yet prepared," said Senator Chandler, "and wili not be ready for some days yet. I do not think well, therefore, to proceed with the consideration unless some senator especially desires to speak upon it today." "My understanding was that tho views ot the minority might be pre sented at any time." said Senator Gray. "There are gentlemen on this side," interrupted Senator Hoar, of Massa chusetts, "who desire to debate this bill at considerable length." "I have no doubt of that," quietly re torted Senator Gray. "1 suppose it will involve considerable debate on both sides, and for that purpose thought it would be well to take it up at an early day." "So far as I am concerned." resumed Senator Gray, "I will consent to the suggestion of the gentleman from Mas sachusetts to postpone the consideration until Tuesday, and I now give notice that on Tuesday, immediately after the morning business, I will move that the senate proceed to the consideration of the federal election bill, and continue with its consideration from Tuesday until it is disposed of." A message was received from tho president transmitting the report of the secretary of state in the matter of claims of certain persons against the government of Spain for illegal arrest on the coast of Yucatan in 1850 and sub sequent illegal imprisonment. Senator Dolph, of Oregon, called up the bill to extend for three years the time of the Umatilla Irrigation com pany in the construction or its irriga ing canal across the Umatilla Indian reservation in the state of Oregou, and it was passed without opposition. After a brief executive session the senate at 1:20 adjourned until Monday next. "A Sleeping Partner."

Jan. 4.— Some gossip is being indulged in as to the probabil ity of further immediate gold spipments, in view of the fact that the average loss of gold to the treasury in Januaary for ttie oast twelve years has been $9,100, --000. Some treasury officials do not be lieve there is any prospect of such ship ments, while others hold to the opinion that with the stiffening ot rates of ex change such exports are altogether probable. The belief is general, how ever, that if 'such shipments are induged in the New York batiks would not come to the relief of the treasury to any con siderable extent, and thus prevent the depletion of gold reserve.

The Discussion to Be General, and to Take in the Entire Range of Tariff Differences ami Income Tax— Senate Sub committee Resumes tho Ha waiian Investigation. Washington*. Jan. 4.— Judire Holman today issued the following call: "There will be a meeting of tlie Dem ocratic members of the house In the hall ot the house Friday evening, Jan. 5, at Bp. m., especially to consider revenue measures. A general attendance of the Democratic members is earnestly re quested. William S. Holman, "Chairman." It is in response to the request of Democratic congressmen made before the holiday adjournment. The purpose of the call is to consider the tariff bill, not only as to the means by which it will be acted on, but also as to the merits of the bill itself. In this respect the move ment is accepted by the tariff leaders as the first open demonstration on the Democratic side of the house in opposition to tlie Wilson bill in its present form. None of the members of the ways and means committee have signed the call, the names being con fined to those who do not approve one feature or another of the bill. Judge Holman said: "I expect the discussion will be very general, and will take in the entire range of tariff differences. The substance of the bill including the internal revenue feature and the in come tax will also come in for atten tion." Chairman Wilson and his associates express their willingness to go into caucus. Mr. Wilson said it was his understanding that the customs feat ures and all otlier sections of the biil would be considered. Many Democrats deprecate the caucus, as they see in it the prospects of a disagreeable clash within the party. The senate subcommittee of the com mittee on foreign relations resumed its investigation of the Hawaiian situation at 10 o'clock this morning. Senator Butler sat with the committee for the first time today, having returned from his holiday vacation, so that all the members of the subcommittee, with the exception of Senator Sherman," were present. Prof. Alexander was a_ain the only witness present, and his examina tion was continued on the line begun yesterday. He devoted much time to relating the details of the revolution of January and explaining the active part taken by the American minister and troops of the United States, and showed conclusively, to his own mind, at least, that the revolution was entirely inde pendent of the official influe nee of this country. Senator Butler, who had not been present at any previous meeting, was especially interested in the nar rative of Mr. Alexander, and asked him many questions concern ing the people of all races on the islands, all of which were answered to the satis faction of the senator. The understand ing now is that the inquiry will be pushed to as speedy a conclusion as is possible in the interest of thoroughness. It Is possible that time may be asked to send to Hawaii for witnesses, and It is hinted that Mr. Jones, who hastened away toward Honolulu on the afternoon of his appearance before the committee, goes largely as the messenger of the senate foreign relations committee to request the attendance of persons now in the Island to appear before the com mittee. In that event the committee would not be able to report before some time iv February. The pension office has decided that in view of the act of congress of Dec. 21, 1593, it no longer has aright to withhold the pension of Judge Long.of Michigan, and has directed that he again be placed on the pension rolls. •'A Sleeping Partner."

The provisional government was as firm as ever hi its determination to maintain its position, and was completing its prepara tions to resist any effort that, might be made to restore the monarchy. The members of the; police force of the island had been no tified that they would be expected to take arms in defense of the government, -. and a number of them had been dis missed from the service for refusing to ; obey this order.

He states that the Chicago meeting was attended by delegates from thirty-seven states, who formulated the, organization of the Ancient Order of Loyal Americans, which is designed to include men of every calling, provided they are loyal citizens. It is proposed to work for the features in all previous industrial platforms, and to be a secret organization. A complete ritual fins been adopted. Three degrees ard pro vided for. There is to be a big free circulating library, with headquarters at Washington. The order is to be con ducted by military orders from head quarters transmitted to the state, and ultimately to the cities and townships. Implicit obedience is to bo exacted. 7 The order is to be non-partisan and non-sectarian, but Mr. Partridge admits , that it will take a prominent part in politics, and will pursue aggressive policies. Mr.Partridge states that it was intended to issue the first general orders at noon of Jan. 15, but that time will not permit it.

About 7:30 o'clock last evening Jere Dunn and two of his friends strolled into the cafe of the St. James hotel. They walked up to the bar aud ordered drinks. Just as they did so James F. Caldwell, the well known starter at the race tracks, hap pened along. , He also walked up to tne bar and asked the drink mixer to make him a cocktail. He had scarcely done so when, on turning, he discovered that be stood right beside his inveterate enemy. As. he caught sight of Duun Caldwell hissed "Murderer!" into his ear. Dunn drew back, looked at Caldwell with a glance of scorn, and then fired at him a volley of oaths. Caldwell replied in kind. Dunn's fist flew out and landed a vicious right hander on Caldwell's nose. Caldwell made a lunge at Dunn with his left, but ■ was seized by the arms and held by ; bystanders. Meanwhile other specta- " tors caught hold of Dunn and dragged him out into the corridor, despite the most desperate efforts on his part to get' '■ away and back again at Caldwell. While ' Caldwell's friends were wiping the | blood from his nose Dunn was taken » by bis companions over to tho Hoffman - house. There they sat down to a table j and talked the incident over.

' AMERICAN RAILWAY MEN TOO DEEP FOR THE ENGLISH. CARD SHARPS ARE ANGELS Compared With the Wall Street . Operator — Wide Berth to Everything American, and Es pecially to the Manipulated Treacherous American Roll way Securities. London, Jan. 4. — The Financial News says: Both fact and fiction have made us familiar even on this side of the Atlantic with the American railroad robber who boards an express train, shoots the guard and rifles the strong box. Unfortunately there is in America another scarcely less disreputable type of robber whose pians are concocted in tne board rooms and whose arena of : operations is Wall street. The paper continues in a similar strain for over a column, comparing the American railroad boss to a card sharper, whose victims have had numer ous warnings, and ought not be sur prised into lament. The methods of the boss, the article says, are not criminal. Ho swindles you by legal devices, and doubtle->s in Wall street he would be considered an honorable man. But Wall street has a peculiar standard. The writer goes into details concerning the Reading, Erie and Atchison col lapses, and proceeds as follows: "Doubtless there are honest railway men In America and bonds that are al most gilt-edge in their sound character, but the balance are heavily the other way. This time, however, the dirty business has been rather overdone, and the British goose is not likely to lay any more golden eggs, If the people have any sense left, they will give a wide berth to everything American, and es pecially to the manipulated treacherous securities of American railways."

Ho Leaves an Article on "When Suicide Is Justifiable," and Says He Had Lone Contem plated Killing Himself— The nope From Which Bornberßer Is to Hans Is Purchased. Aberdeen, S. D., Jan. 4.— Several days ago James M. Allen, of Black Hawk, Pennington county, committed suicide by shooting himself through the heart. He was born at Cleveland, 0., sixty-one years ago, and spent tho greater portion ot his lite in the far West. In 18G3 he was in the Indian campaign under Gen. Sully against the hostile Sioux, and later went South and fought on the Union side in the War of the Rebellion. He was clerk in the first two legislatures, aud a charter member of the first Masonic lodge in Dakota at Yankton. Among his papers is the fol lowing article on "When Suicide Is Justifiable." The deceased says: "I wish now to correct the popular Idea that a man must necessarily be insane who takes his own life. No doubt some are, but I believe the greater majority do so in full pos session of their mental faculties, and after a dispassionate and in telligent survey of their condition find it hopeless to prolong a struggle for an | existence which -"holds out no hope, and i they sever the tie which binds them to I a useless life. In my own case no one can have a keener conception of what 1 1 contemplate doing. I have thought the | matter over for years, studied it in all its bearings and aspects, always arriv- | ing at the one conclusion— lhat when a man, by reason of broken health, Is in capable of earning his living, and is a -burden to his friends, and is utterly worthless in this world, can be of no I use to himself or his fellow men, then I ,he is best out of this life and take his chances in another— if there is another. !

Most ail tne wonder ful inventions we now have the benefit of have occurred in my lifetime, and j they are merely the forerunner of greater discoveries yet to come."

Officials Say They Know Nothing ot the Above. Washington, Jan. The report current in Montevideo that President Peixote was negotiating with United ! States Minister Thompson looking to j the intervention of the United States fleet at Rio in accomplishing a settle ment of Brazilian difficultion was de nied by officials of the state and navy departments today. The dispatch from Montevideo was shown to Secretary Herbert, and he said that if any such intervention was contemplated he is not informed of it. In the state department it was also assserted that no information of such negotiation has been received from Minister Teompson,and that no instruc tions had been sent him to take such action. Corroboration was secured for the report that the United States anil German authorities had together taken actiou to prevent the rebel forces from again attacking thecity of Rio or doing damage to It. As to the reported move ments of Peixoto's naval forces towards Pernambuco, the naval department is inclined to doubt that it indicates that Peixoto is in any such straits as is con veyed 'by the news dispatches. It is also questioned whether Mello would go back into Rio bay. exposing himself to the fire of the forts, and then bring the I whole naval force away again past the forts, thus, iv effect, wholly abandoning Rio. .

Rio de Janeiro, Jan. 4.— Admiral Coehelento has replaced Admiral Cbave as minister of marine, and it is reported that the change indicates that the gov ernment intends to inaugurate a more active maritime policy, and that the new minister of marine will immediate ly take steps to prepare President Peixoto's fleet for an engagement with the rebel squadron in order that the re bellion may be settled one way or the other as soon as possible. **•__ Sleeping Partner."

We have a few doughnuts and not so many dollars, but we will wager the whole pile that Nelson can poll 10,000 more votes for any office in the state, United States senator included, than any man you can name. It seems to us that tiie result of the election a year ago should have con vinced the most skeptical that Gov. Nel son is a vote getter.— Preston Times. \__ Is that so. Brother Langum?
