WASHINGTON, March 13.— The ex-
WASHINGTON, March 13.— The ex-'
citement of the Cuban debate gave way
in the senate today to Mr. Cockrell's
elaborate speech occupying four hours,
en the financial question. There was a \
spirited reference to Cuba early in the
day, when it developed during an ex- '
planation by Mr. Lodge that the com- !
mittee on foreign relations had received
from Secretary Olney a statement by
Senor Dupuy de Lome, the Spanish
minister, giving the Spanish view of
the case. This brought out very ani- !
mated suggestions from Mr. Hoar and ;
Mr. Wolcott that the senate be put j
into possession of this important tes
Mr. Cockrell's speech was an elabor-
ate presentation of the financial ques- |
tion from the silver standpoint, so
much so that Mr. Hoar, in the course
of an inquiry, stated that it was the
ablest speech he had ever listened to. :
Mr. Coekrell occasionally left his ar
guments for very sharp personal crit- \
icisms on Secretary Carlisle.
By a coincidence Sir Julian Paunce-
fote was in the gallery when Mr. Cock- '
rell closed his speech with the state- ;
ment that if we were to be subserv
ient to the English money interests, we
should "haul down old glory, raise the
gold standard and cry aloud: 'Long
live the Queen of Great Britain and
the Empress of India.' "
After Mr. Lodge had made his cor- !
rection of Mr. Sherman's statements, ':
Mr. Coekrell was recognized for a speech j
in support of the silver amendments to >
the tariff bill, which measure had been !
in abeyance since the refusal of the j
senate to adopt Mr. Morrill's motion to
consider it.
Mr. Coekrell called attention to the ;
Mr. Coekrell called attention to the
balances in the treasury, including
over $123,000,000 gold coin and bullion
over $24,000,000 standard silver dollars,
$177,000,000 of silver bullion (coinage
value), on which the profit or seignior- '
age had been $53,000,000; $14,000,000 sub-
sidiary silver coin; $106,000,000 of green- ■
backs and $30,000,000 of treasury notes
of 1890. Our bonds, the senator main-
tamed, can be paid as well in silver
as. in gold, and he called attention «*.i
the fact that Secretary Carlisle
and Secretary Herbert had voted
while in the house of representatives '<
for the Stanley Matthews resolution,
declaring bonds payable in either cum.
The senator referred also to Senator
Sherman as "that distinguished gold '
monometallism bimetallist," an 1 read
from Mr. Shermans utterances in IS;J
when he was secretary of the lieas-
ury, that the government reserved the
legal right to redeem government ob-
ligations in silver. If this po-iev had
been carried out, there would' have
been no raids on the treasury. Ex-
elusive gold payments waj a' volun- I
tary assumption on the part of tlie •
secretary of the treasury. The:* had
been no gold raids prior to 1891, be- j
cause the silver dollar, up to that time,
was the "watch dog of the treasury." f
"And it was a more potent watch
dog than any of the Rothschilds or
the Belmonts," added Mr. Coekrell
The proposition of the president to is- j
sue fifty-year bonds to retire notes
he said,
It was the worst financial proposition
that had ever emanated from an exec- I
utive officer, and. if adopted, it would !
cost the people $2,631,000,000. Secretary
Carlisle had recently, in a speech pro-
claimed himself for gold. There was
no further effort to disguise the issue
behind "sound money," which meant
absolute gold monometallism.
At 2 o'clock the regular order way-
laid aside in order to permit Mr. Cock-
rell to proceed. The galleries had
wearied waiting for the Cuban de-
bate, and the crowd gradually thluucci
Mr. Coekrell spoke of the timidity of
gold as a money, and referred to the
agitation caused by. President (_le\e-

string tied to it." That message maue

and the press of New York declared !
that one hundred million dollars na-1
been lost in consequence. Th' sen-
ator declared that the Democratic
party could not be divided by the sil
ver question. It was the pillar of
cloud by day and the pillar of fire by
night, the great constitutional beacon
of the Democratic party, the one or-
which all its victories had b*»en won
and those who opposed it would slough
off from the party, but would not di- I
vide it. Mr. Coekrell was particularly
severe on what he termed the ' 'flimsy '
pretexts and "stuff" which Secretary I
Carlisle offered in his speeches in sun j
port of the gold standard.
It was 4:30 o'clock when Mr Cock- I
rell closed, and it was apparent that '
it was too late to go on with the Cv- i
ban question, and the senate went
into executive session. At 6 o'clock
the senate adjourned until Monday.
Republicans Given a Chance to De
ounce Southern Election Meth
WASHINGTON, March 13.-After two days-
debate, the house, by a vote of 173 to 59
unseated Gasten A. Robbins from the Fourth
Alabama district, and decided that his Re-
publican opponent, W. F. Aldrieh, was elect-
ed and entitled to the seat. All the Republi-
cans, with the exception of Mr. White, of
Illinois, and the Populists and three Demo-
crats—Messrs. Cobb, Dockery and Dearmond,
of Missouri— voted for the majority report!
j The 59, votes against the report were cact by
I Democrats, with one exception. The case fur
i nished the Republicans ample material for
airing their views on Southern election meth
ods, it being admitted by the minority that
fraudulent ballots to the extent of over 3,000
were cast for the contestee in Dallas county.
Mr. Dlnsmbre, of Arkansas, who closed the
debate for the minority today, claimed that
the Republicans, proceeded on the erroneous
assumption that all the negroes in the South
voted the Republican ticket. Mr. Robbins

ical XtK-Itt Session.
WASHINGTON. March 13.— A1l proceedings
in the house at the night session, which was
to have been devoted under the rules to the
consideration of private pension bills, were
unexpectedly blocked. by .Mr. Erdman (Dem.,
Pa.), who made »he point of no quorum, at
the very outset, on the motion to go into the
committee of the whole. A resolution was
adopted directing the arrest of absentees.
The sergeant at arms had four deputies scur
rying about town with over 100 warrants in
their possession, looking- for absentees, but
no one except Mr. Dearmond (Dem., Mo. was
arrested and brought before the bar of the
house before adjournment, and the house ad
journed at 10:30. Pending the hunt for mem
bers those present proceeded to enjoy them
selves by making farcical points of order.
Mr. Powers (Hep., Vt.) managed to get the
floor and made a humorous speech about the
contest lor the Republican presidential nom
ination. He greatly chided Mr. Hepburn, of
lowa, who had just returned from the lowa
state convention, where the Allison boom wait
formally launched, for not taking the housA»
into his confidence as to the progress that
had been made. .-*.-> .-.■—■*■
"We are all Interested," said he, "because
there are many Heed men here, and McKinley
men and Quay men."
The name of the speaker was sprung so
suddenly that his supporters were taken by
surprise and made no demonstration, but at
the name of McKinley, Mr. Hullck, of Ohio,
started a round of applause all over the
house, which was re-echoed by the galleries,
and when Mr. Quay's name was mentioned,
the Pennsylvanlans made a counter demon
stration. Gov. Morton's candidacy was also
referred to. and the mention of his name was
greeted with enthusiasm from New York's

Large Appropriation Approved by
the Honse Committee.
the House Committee.
WASHINGTON", March 13.— The bureau of
construction and repair of the navy depart
ment today sent to the house committee on
naval affairs a request for a special appro
priation to put a number of war vessels into
shape for service if they are needed. The
sum of $350,000 is asked for, and the depart
ment represents that with this amount ten j
ships that are now out of commission can be
made ready to go into commission if their
services shall be needed. The committee de
cided to recommend that the appropriation of I
$350,000 be made, and that the money be made !
immediately available. They also reduced the
regular appropriations for construction and
repairs, which have been set at $11,000,000, to
$12,000,000, to partially offset. this action.
There are twelve boats which the depart
ment wishes to put into condition for sen ice,
and for which the appropriation was asked,
some of them new craft and others old ones
now out of commission. The boats and
amounts thought necessary to expend
upon them follow: Miantonomah. $17,000; I
Bennington, $10,000; Baltimore, $50,000; Petrel, j
$10,000; Mohican, $5,000; Pensacola and Swa
tara, $3,000; Atlanta, $25,000; Fortune. $29,000; i
Standish. $5,000, Bangor, $50,000; Vesuvius,
$7,000. The remainder of the item is • for
miscellany repairs.
The Senate Disposes of Nominations
Which Have Long Hung Fire.
WASHINGTON. March 13.— The senate held
an executive session today for the purpose
of considering several nominations which j
have been held back almost since the begin
ning of the session, and against which op- !
position was made because of the fact that i
the nominees were not residents of the state !
in which they were appointed. The first of ]
these taken up was that of William H. An- '
derson, of Kentucky, who was appointed reg- |
ister of the land office at Enid, Okla. A yea
and nay vote was taken, and resulted 25 to ,
24 in Anderson's favor. The nomination of i
George H. Newman, of Tennessee, to be In
dian agent at. Colville agency, in Washing- i
ton, was also confirmed, the vote being 28 :
to 19. The fight against Anderson was led
today by Senator Dubois, and he was de
fended by Senator Lindsay. Senators Wilson !
and Squire, of Washington, both protested i
against the Newman nomination, and they !
were supported in the contention by Sen
ator Hill. Senators Harris and Bate both }
spoke in the highest terms of Newman's fit
ness for th" office. The opposition in both |
cases was based upon non-residence. Senator I
Hill joined with the Western men in this j
view of the matter, and made a vigorous
speech in support of the home rule principle
in nominations to federal offices.
Splendid Behavior of the Battle-
ship Indiana in Recent Storms.
BEAUFORT. S. C, March 13.— The Indiana
will be docked tomorrow morning between 8
and 9 o'clock unless some unforeseen cir
cumstances prevent. The dock has been made,
and all that the ship awaits is high water.
She crossed the bar at 6:30 this morning in
30 feet of water, drawing 24 feet 4 inches.
She steamed slowly up the channel, and it
was 8:30 o'clock when she reached the naval
station. At that time the tide had fallen and
the docking of the vessel had to be post
poned. On the trip from Hampton Roads the
ship ran into a gale at 2 o'clock Wednesday
afternoon. The wind continued to blow at a
terrific rate, at times assuming the propor
tions of a hurricane. The waves ran high,
but the ship proved herself a splendid sea
boat, and was handled with ease. Capt.
Evans expresses himself as greatly delighted
with her performance, in the storm. Some
water went below, caused by loose hatches,
which, it is stated, are the result of firing
the 13-inch guns from fore and aft for the
board of inspectors.
Substitute for Previous Bills Drafted
by Representative Connolly.
WASHINGTON, March 13.— As a result of
the discussion- by the house judiciary commit
tee of the subject of giving foreigners who
may be injured by mob violence in this coun
try access to the United States courts to se
cure financial redress for their grievances in
stead of the usual suits in state courts, Mr.
Connelly, of Illinois, has drawn a substitute
for the bill recommended by Chairman Hitt,
of the committee on foreign affairs, and Sec
retary Olney. Under this bill Mr. Connolly
says foreigners who have entered the United I
States by evading the naturalization laws. j
would have no claim upon the government •
for injuries which might be inflicted upon
them, nor would fugitives from justice. The
plan is looked upon with favor by Mr. Hitt,
and its ideas are likely to be adopted by the
judiciary committee in any bill which it may
recommend. I'-r'.y
At Yesterday's Meeting of the Vene- j
zuelan Commission.
WASHINGTON. March 13.-All the mem
bers of the Venezuelan commission were
present at the regular weekly meeting to
day, and the entire morning session was con
sumed in discussion of matter already before '
the body. Mr. Scruggs, counsel for the Yen- !
ezuelan government, called ,, just before the i
meeting, and presented another pamphlet, j
supplementing the case laid before the com
mission a day or two ago. This was a volume ;
of thirty-eight pages, entitled "Official Re- i
port of the Condition of Affairs in the Dis
puted Territory in March, 1590." The matter
is interesting mainly because of the light it
casts upon the situation in the disputed ter
ritory following the discovery of gold in pay
ing quantities and the conditions which led
up to the clash at Uruan. „ *. *■"--*.---. .
Senate Committee Proposes to Tims

WASHINGTON, March 13.— At a Hill meet
ing of the committee on privileges and. elec
tions today. Senator Mitchell, chairman of |
the committee was authorized to report his j
joint resolution . proposing an amendment to
the constitution of the United States, provid
ing for the election of the United States sen
ators by a direct vote of the people. The vote
in committee was 5 to 4 in favor of the
amendment, three Republicans and two Dem
ocrat* in the affirmative, and two Republic
ans and two Democrats against.

Republicans Fall to Master All
Their Members and the Strug-
I ■ file In Delayed.
CINCINNATI, 6.* March 13.— The
Commercial Gazette" *-" special from j
Frankfort, ; Ky., says: Wood Dunlap
refused to be sworn in today, although !
earnestly solicited by Republicans.
The Democrats are proposing a com- !
promise measure. This .work was be- :
gun by Senator. Stevenson's offering :
this evening a motion to reconsider the |
action of the senate in expelling Sen-
ators James and Walton.
President Worthington, however," will
not entertain such proceedings, as he
holds that James and Walton having^
been expelled afte- adjournment are |
still members of the senate, because
the action expelling them was illegal
and of no force.
It is believed that the Democrats '
will defer this attempt to reinstate j
James and Walton until the last day
of the session. ..
It is believed by the Republicans that \
with the vote of Dunlap Boyle could
be elected senator. . His refusal to qual
ify mystifies them.
FRANKFORT, Ky., March 13.— Short- j
ly after 11 o'clock; Sheriff Armstrong
made his appearance with eight dep
uties in the corridors between the two
house chambers. Senator Blackburn,
with a few ot his . friends, including
Jim Williams, Jack Chirm . and others,
came over to the .senate cloak room
about 11:30. At 11:30 a. m. Sheriff Arm- j
strong received instructions from Gov. j
Bradley to clear the senate cloak room, j
in which were Senator Blackburn and
his friends, including Jack Chirm and j
others. As. soon as the senate majority
heard of this move of the governor the
Blackburn forces grew, hot and at once
drew up a resolution of rebuke to the •
governor. It caused the wildest con-
fusion. '".
The reading of this resolution caused !
a sensation. Petri, (Rep.^said that it i
was extraordinary a"fid 'he asked that
a committee be appointed '"to confer
with the governor, and see if such an
order had been issued by him.
Senator Bronston grew fiery, and bit- j
terly scored the governor. He called
for the adoption the resolution. Sen-
ator Goebel spoke "equally as bitterly, j
He said the governor had no right to
interfere with the rights of the sen- 1
ate. "I, for one," he shouted in a high, ;
cold, penetrating voice, "am ready to
protect my own rights and privileges." j
Salzer (Dem.) was not carried off his
feet by this storm of denunciation of j
the governor. He said it was the duty
of the senate, out of respect to the gov
ernor, to send a committee to find out
from that official If he had issued such
an order. "if it is found," said he, |
"that the governor ha* issued such an
order, then I am In favor of passing
the resolution, but let us not act hast-
Bronston said:. "Never will that
committee go to the governor with '
my consent or with my vote." "Or
mine," cried Goebel and others.
The sheriff, who was present, here
said that he had received the orders
mentioned from the governor. Senator
Bronston said: "I denounce the act of i
the governor, if it, were the last drop of j
my blood. It is outrageous and unlaw
ful, a treacherous act. I denounce it," I
he almost screamed,' amidst the pound- I
ing of the gavel; and the suppressed I
hum of many voices. "Let the gover- j
nor leave us alone. Pass the resolu- I
tions and condemn the man who is gov- j
ernor by accident. I denounce his ac- !
tion and am ready, as a Kentuckian ■
and as a man." Then, white as a sheet
the senator sat down.
Then Senator Deboe~ arose and de-
nounced the reflection of Bronston on
Gov. Bradley as false and untrue. "I
say it to his face," said, he, glaring at '
Bronston. Then he sat down. Senator
Bronston jumped up and commenced
to unbutton his vest, and many present
thought that the time for bloodshed
had arrived. Before he could act, the
presiding officer succeeded by pound-
ing the gavel and pleading for quiet, in
restoring order. ' .
Senator Salyer. arose and said that
he was not willing to insult the goveno******"*-**
of Kentucky, and moved to refer the
motion offered by Bronston to the com-
mittee on rules, and this was done.
The news of the exciting scenes in
the senate had reached the house be- I
fore the joint assembly ., arrived. The
call of the roll developed the fact that
the Republicans had not. suceeded in
getting out .all their members. There
were two pairs. The roll call showed
128 members present. Necessary to a
choice, 65. The ballot resulted: Black-
burn, 50; Carlisle, ,13; Suckner, 1.
The Republicans refused to vote and
there was no quorum. When Populist
Poor's name was called, he refused to
vote. i The chair announced that there
had been no choice. The assembly
then adjourned. - »
When the senate reconvened, after
the joint session,: Sheriff Armstrong, j
who had been in consultation with the i
governor regarding the clearing of the !
senate cloak room, appeared with a \
written paper. from the governor. This j
paper was read to the senate, on re-
quest of Mr. Bronston, and was sub-
stantially as follows: y:
"R. I*. Armstrong, Sheriff: On consultation
with you concerning your duties, I expressed
the opluion that y(Mi should keep the lobby
clear of all persons except members of the
general assembly, : and the officers of . same, \
and at all times do whatever was necessary to
preserve the public • peace. I • stated that the j
lobby should be cleared in order to enable the j
senate free access to the house,- while the sen- I
ate and house were in joint session. You
should; take such steps as are, necessary, to
prevent the collection of persons jon Ihe upper
floor whom you thought not entitled to be
■ there under • the , rules " and orders of those
bodies. I. did not order you to do these things.
'for, as a peace officer, (such- was your duty. I
gave my opinion, and I adhere to it.
y.\ O. Bradley."
: : Senator Bronston arose to a question
of personal privilege. He said that he
had understood from the sheriff that he
had received orders, such as had been
announced in the senate: He said: "I
believe that had the governor ordered
the sheriff to clear the senate chamber
and its cloak room, that it would have
been an act of disrespect to this body.
I now wish to recall and blot out all
that I may have said in disrespect to
that official. I desire, after this state-
ment, to retract on the part of myself
and my associates all that we have
said, and wish to say that I believe
that he acted entirely as he should. I
ask pardon if I have offended. any one
on this floor by offensive remarks."
Senator Deboe then arose, and said
that his remarks were called forth by
the statements of the senator from
Fayette (Bronston). He wished to
withdraw anything offensive that , he
might have said. The whole affair gui-
eted down in a minute, and a regular
love feast almost resulted.
Gen, Manderson Explains Ills Presi
dential Candidacy.
CHICAGO, March Ex-Senator Mander-
son, of Nebraska, passed through Chicago to-
day en route from Omaha to Washington.
"There is nothing in my candidacy," said
Gen. Manderson, "but what appears on the
surface. For a year and more friends in Ne
braska and elsewhere have urged me to allow
i tho use of my name, but for a long time I de
j clined.' Finally I concluded that I would not
| interpose further objection. It was a mere
coincidence that my consent was given at a
time when the candidacies of several others
■ were uncovered. The movement in my behalf
is not inspired or in any way controlled by any
political leader or any combination. of politi
cians in the East. Much less is it antagonis-
tic to any one of the distinguished gentlemen
who are contesting for the lead in the presi
dential race."
"Then you were not brought out to head off
the McKinley boom in the East?"
"Nothing could be further from the truth.
Maj. McKlnley-is my friend. I recognize his
ability and strength. I believe he will be nor
n In my own state he can and is wel-
come to name his own personal friends as
delegates. All I ask is that the delegates from
Nebraska have an opportunity to present my
name, If by doing so they do not jeopardize
Maj. McKlnley's Interest.. Less than this, I
could not do, my friends think, in justice to
myself. The McKinley sentiment is very
strong In Nebraska, but It is not presumption !
in me to think that Nebraskans would like to j
have a Nebraskan for president, if Maj. Mc-
Kinley should not receive the nomination.
My name has been received with gratifying
enthusiasm by the press and people of Ne
braska, and I have no reason to question their
sincerity. That is about all there is to say,
unless I repeat that I am not talking horse,
and that my candidacy . stands on its merit,
without prejudice to any other." .

Evidence In Case of Americans Im-
prisoned nt Havana.
WASHINGTON, March 13.— The president
today sent to the senate the correspondence
from the state department bearing upon the
arrest of Mark E. Roderiguez and Luis Lo-
millan and his son, citizens of the United
States, in Havana on Jan. 15 last, charged
with sedition and rebellion. There is also a
copy .of a letter from C. Reccio, of Key West,
Fla., addressed to Senator Call, and by him
referred to the secretary of state. in which
Mr. Reccio says the arrest of Roderiguez
Is an outrage. "He was," Mr. Reccio con-
tinues, "in Havana some few days and had
permission to leave, and after he was on
board the American steamer Olivette was
arrested and taken ashore. He had nothing
to do with the revolution. I have personal
knowledge that he refused to take a letter
to a lady in Havana for fear that it might
be . misconstrued."
This letter being forwarded to Mr. Will-
iams, he replied that he had exhausted his
consular functions in having the case trans
ferred from the military to the civil courts.
He adds that Mr. Roderiguez has secured
counsel, who is giving his case assiduous
attention. ''*iCi',y %j7~y y"* • "^V

WINONA, Minn., March John
Fischer, a young man who resides in
this city and has previous to this date
been well and favorably known, is now
behind the bars of the county jail, hav
ing*; been arrested at the postoffice here
this afternoon. y v '
• It appears for some time articles
have been missing from the mails. Not |
only were letters opened, but even
fourth-class mail was missed and never ;
found. Suspicion centered upon a cer- j
tain mail clerk, the above-mentioned
Fischer, and two government specials,
A. D. Wood and J. A. Ferril, have been
working on the case for some time.
The climax was reached yesterday, and
the thief detected by the use of decoy
letters. Five decoys were sent, two
from New Ulm, one from Mankato,
one from Waseca and one from Owa
tonna. Seventy-five cents, a half-dol
lar and a quarter were taken from one
sent from New Ulm and the amount re
placed with stamps, which Fischer aft
erwards confessed he stole. The Man
kato letter was. opened and a nickel
and a dime taken and their places
filled with stamps also. All the coins
had, previously been marked, so that
they could afterwards be easily iden
tified. Upon arrival in this city from
his mail run on the Winona & St.
Peter division of the Northwestern he
went to the postofflce. Here he was
immediately pounced upon. It did not
take the officers long to get a confes
sion out of him and find the marked
coins upon his person. Fischer was
taken to the county jail.

PINE ISLAND, Minn., March 13.—
Deputy M. Whelan, of Minneapolis, has
been here for the past two days look
ing after alleged violations of the rev
enue laws. He ha 3 succeeded in un- j
earthing and capturing three illicit I
stills — one in the vicinity of Berne,
Dodge county, about five miles south
west of here, being- in the possession
of a German farmer named Godfred '
Graff. The other two stills, after ;
considerable difficulty, were located by!
Collector. Whelan* in Roscoe township, !
Goodhue county, about seven- miles
west of Pine Island. They were in the \
possession of another German farmer,
named Fred Andrist.
The deputy having learned from these
parties that the stills were all made
by the same man, E. G. Bucholz. hard- I
ware merchant and tinsmith at Pine j
Island, returned here today and con- !
fronted him with the evidence of his j
guilt. Mr. Bucholz admits having made
two of the stills in question, but de
nies having made the third one. There |
is little doubt but all of the parties
implicated will be brought to trial.
Superior Board of Trade Censures
Grain Buyers.
WEST SUPERIOR, Wis.. March 13. -The
board of trade directors have taken action
in the case of the controversy pending be
tween the Chandler-Hayes Grain company and I
a farmer of Mapleton. N. D. The latter made !
complaint to the board through bis attorney, '
Thomas W. . Shackelford, that the Chandler- .
Hayes company purchased from him last fall ;
3,000 bushels of barley at IS cents per bushel. j
f. o. b.. and that the settlement therefor was j
not satisfactory. The directors, after invest
igating the matter, came to the conclusion ■
that the farmer was right. A resolution was
adopted declaring that the seller is justified i
in demanding a full settlement of the account, j
and censuring the Chandler-Hayes Grain !
company for failing to live up to Its agree- I
ment. Just what the outcome will be. is*' a !
matter of speculation. It Is understood that
the board will insist on a settlement with
the farmer, and that suspension from the
board is likely to result" in case the grain
company falls to comply with the terms of the
