At Democratic Absenteeism
at This -mportant Time,
Their Success in Blocking"
Questions Right to Appoint a
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
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
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
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.
by What Authority Blount Was
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
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
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
"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.

Gold Shipments. ..
Washington. 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,
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
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.

department presents a table showing
the monetary system and approximate
stocks of money in the aggregate and
per capita in the principal countries of
the world. This shows that France
with a population of 35,300,000 has the
highest per capita circulation of any of
the countries named in the table, viz.

Will Be Resisted by the Provis

Queen Willing to Grant Am
nesty to the Revolutionists,
and to Govern in Accordance'
With the Constitution.
[Copyright, 1804. by the Associated l'res-.l
Auckland, New Zealand, Jan. 4.—
Advices from Honolulu to Dec. 22 have
been received here by the steamer-
Alameda which has just arrived from
San Francisco. The officers of the ves
sel stated to an Associated Press corre
spondent that the excitement in Hono
lulu over the political situation was
glowing in intensity. 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. The officers further 4 ,
stated to the interviewer that the min
ister of the United States had written to
the provisional government requesting
that they sunender office, as the United
States government had decided in favor
of the restoration of the queen. The
minister, in his communication, in
formed the government that Liliuokr.
lani had agreed to grant amnesty to all
those who had taken part in the revolu
tion to ratify the obligations of the
present government and to govern
faithfully in accordance with the pies- j
ent constitution. The government was
preparing a long reply to the minister. ••
The Commercial Advertiser, of Honolu
lu, in an article supporting the govern-,
ment, declared that the United States
congress had taken the matter out oti
President Cleveland's hands by calling
for the papers In the Hawaiian corre
spondence, and asserts that the pro
visional government will not retire from
power unless compelled to by force, and
says that this is not likely to be em- ;
ployed. | >
Temporary repairs have been made
to the Canadian & Australian steam- j
ship company's steamer Miowera, which I
stranded at Honolulu last October, and '
she will proceed to San Francisco. : ;
Claims It Will Become of National
i „.. Importance.
Lansing. Mich., Jan. 4.—Develop
ments here. today disclose the existence
of a new labor organization which its
promoters are confident is to become of
great national importance. Its exist
ence has not hitherto been made public, -
although the organization was perfect
ed at a secret meeting at the Palmer
house, Chicago, Dec. 26-27. : A secret
meeting of the "vice gerent national
commttee" was held here today. The
committeemen are Azeriah Partridge,
Michigan: Hugo Preyer, Ohio: Thomas
Bos worth, Indiana; R. A. Thompson,
Pennsylvania; J. J. Streeter, New
Hampshire; E. S. Moore, Illinois. All
of these are here except Bosworth arid
Moore. Mr. Partridge is apparently
the leader. 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. The above statements
were imparted guardedly, with the com
mittee's consent. They decline to state
the officers' names.
Between Two Well-Known Char
acters. "7 V*
New York, Jan. 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. An hour 1
later Caldwell succeeded iv getting into! >
the Hoffman, with the evident inten- ;
tion of shooting Dunn at sight. The «
latter, however, was ready for him, but !
again friends interfered and bloodshed
was avoided. Caldwell was ejected,
add left swearing he would kill Dunn

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."
The Westminster Gazette, in its finan
cial article today refers to the growing
opposition in London and New York to
the Erie re-organization plan. It says
it is by no means certain that the bond
holders are helpless. It quotes from a
letter from Mr. Robson. whose opinions,'
it says, are entitled to consideration,
urging the bondholders to withhold
their assent from the plan and thus
drive directors to the necessity of as
sessing the snares. :

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. !
All that 1 would care to live for now is
to see what the inventive genius of this
age will produce. 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."
He ciosed by writing: "Good-by to
the steady forty-pound pressure on my
forehead and the ever-cutting pain in
the temples. Good-by, insomnia and
sleepless nights." ..-.-..
Mr.- Allen dressed himself in the most
careful manner for the awful deed, ar
ranging his apparel so that nothing
would be disturbed or soiled by the bul
let wound. He had, with careful pre
cision, placed besice him for the use of
those who should care.for bis body a
bandage for his head and a white rib
bon with which to tie his hands in posi
sition after the deed was done. .The de- \
tails in all their minutue were remem- ;
bered. even to asking that his body be j
sent East, cremated, and the ashes
sprinkled on bis father's and mother's ■
It Is Ready for the Neck or the '
Grand Forks, X. D., Jan. 4.— Sheriff
McCune, of Towner county, in an inter- J
view, says: "I have already purchased ;
the rope with which Bomberger will be j
hanged. It is of hemp, especially pre- •
pared, about half an inch in diameter j
and a hundred feet long. It arrived in !
Cando on Christmas. The scaffold will
be built by a Scotchman up in Towner ]
county, who has helped to build several '
in the old country. It will be about j
twenty feet high, with a drop of ten
feet. Some of the boys wanted to know
what kind ot an enclosure I would build
around the scaffold and 1 told them I
thought 1 would put up a wire fence. 1
was in to see Bomberger yesterday. He
asked me if we were fixing up for him
at Cando, and upon being answered
affirmatively, said that he wasn't afraid,
but wanted me to be sure the rope was
a good stout one."

Montevideo, Jan. 4.— The officers in
command of the ships belonging to the
government of President Peixoto, of
Brazil, have received instructions to
immediately embark provisions, coal
and other supplies, and to proceed with
all possible haste toPernambuco' where

raise the money necessary to complete
and provision the two war vessels of

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. .
To Forco Matters.
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.

Some Sockdolager Figures.
Dollars to doughnuts that if a United

pie at the polls. Nelson wouldn't come with
in forty rows of apple trees of being elected.
— Anoka Union.
Way off, Brother Pease. 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? Well,
Nelson had 100,220 votes; Harrison 122,
-523, which is running behind, over 13,
--000. There was a candidate on tho
state ticket who received a larger vote
than Nelson, Bobleter for treasurer,
100,415. There are several men in tho
state who can give Nelson cards and
spades as vote-getters. A. R. Met ill! is
one, W. 11. Eustis another, Moses E.
