All the Pending Amendments Laid on the Table or Voted Down. H GREOT FIELD DflY OF DEBfITE. The First Alignment of Forces for the Next National Campaign. PfflTY LINES BBDLY SHUTTERED. On the Lodge Gold Amendment iNelson, of Minnesota, Voted With the Majority— Intense Interest. WASHINGTON, Jan. 23.— After a de bate, animated at all times, and occas ionally acrimonious, which occupied the greater part of this: week, the senate this evening, by a decisive vote of 47 to 32, passed the Teller concurrent reso lution. The resolution is practically a re-affirmation of that of Stanley Matthews, in 1878, and is aa follows: That all the bonds of the United States tssufd, or authorized to be Issued, under the said acts of congress hereinbefore re?lted, are payable, principal and interest, at the option of the government of the United States In silver dollars of the coinage of the United States containing 4!2 ;^ Kr.ai.s each of standard silver; and that to restore to its coinage such silver coins as legal ter.der in payment of said bonds, principal and interest, is not in viola tion of the public faith nor in derogation of the rights of the public creditor. All efforts to amend the resolution were voted down by majorities ranging from five to twenty-nine, Mr. Lodge's gold standard substitute being defeated by the latter majority. The vote on the Ledge amendment was, yeas, 24; nays, 53. The events of the day leading up to the final vote were full of interest and importance. It was a field day for the orators of the senate, no less than twenty-five senators embracing the op portunity to speak upon the subject under discussion. That the debate was interesting was attested by the atten dance In the galleries, which were crowded throughout the day, and that it was Important was evidenced by the statements of several of the speakers that the discussion was but the pre liminary alignment of the great politi cal parties for the contest of 1900. From 10 o'clock this morning until 7 this evening, the contest was continued. When the voting began It was evident that party lines were being broken on both sides of the chamber, but it was on the substitute offered by Mr. Lodge that the most decided break occurred. On the Republican side Mr. Allison (Iowa) and Mr. Burrows (Mich.) did not answer to their names on that roll call and many of the Republicans vot ed directly against it. Upon the final passage of the resolution, some Repub licans who supported McKinley and the St. Louis platform in 1896, like Carter (Mont.), Chandler (N. H.), Clark (Wyo.), Pritchard (N. C), Shoup (Idaho), War ren (Wyo.) and Wolcott (Colo.), voted for the resolution because, as Mr. Wol cott announced, they did not believe the resolution committed those who sup ported it to the free and unlimited coinage of silver. FIELD DAY OF DEBATE. KlirJit Honrn of Oratory In the Sen ate Chamber. Mr. Stewart (Nev.) opened the last day's discussion of the Teller resolu tion. In supporting the resolution, Mr. Stewart maintained that money, wheth er it be silver or gold or paper, was a creature of law, the creation of money being inherent in all Independent na tions. Mr. Jones, of Arkansas, and Mr. Can- FRfINSE Changes Front. LONDON, Jan. 29.— The Pekin cor respondent of the Times says: The French attitude has undergone a sud den change, and she now appears to give a reluctant support to the men acing language of the Russian agent, M. Pavloff (charge d'affaires at Pekin). against the opening of Ta-Lien-Wan. The Chinese, having made inquiries, disbelieve Pavloff's statement that Russia can provide a loan on the same financial terms as Great Britain. At the meeting of the grand council last night (Thursday) the Chinese de cided to approach the English and Rus sian governments with a proposal of compromise, each power to provide one-half the loan on its own financial terms, and the other conditions to be adjusted between them. According to a special dispatch from Shanghai, Sung, the Chinese comman der at Port Arthur, recently informed Capt. Chichester, of the British war ship Immortalite, that the Russian warships had the Tsung LI Yamen's special permission to remain there. Capt. Chichester thereupon insisted that Sung should obtain by telegraph similar permission for the Immortalite. Sung complied with the demand, and permission was granted. The first-class battleship Barfleur, sister ship of the Centurion, the flag ship of the British squadron in Chinese waters, will leave Malta for China on Feb. 6. The Daily Chronicle says this morn ing that the far Eastern situation was discussed between the Marquis of Salis bury and United States Ambassador Hay before the latter started for Egypt. NEW YORK, Jan. 28.— A petition was presented to the chamber of commerce committee on foreign commerce today urging that the chamber bring to the SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 29, 1898. non, of Utah, followed, both in favor of the resolution and then the first speech of the day in opposition to the Teller resolution was delivered by Mr. Bur rows, of Michigan. He said that the Republican party was pledged to se cure, if possible, international bimetal lism, and the president would do every thing in his power to carry out that pledge. Meantime, the existing gold standard would be maintained. Until the international agreement was se cured, the purpose of the administra tion was to continue the kind of bimet allism we have now. Mr. Fairbanks (Ind.) followed against the resolution. He said the purpose of the resolution was not frankly ex pressed an its face and it was only in the course of debate that it developed that the essential purpose was to give an expression of the United States sen ate favorable to the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. In the course of his remarks Mr. Fairbanks read a telegram received by him from Secretary Gage, as to the methods in paying bonds. In this Mr. Gage states that gold when demanded is not refused, but as a matter of fact gold is seldom called for and few pay ments are made in gold. Referring to Senator Teller's advo cacy of free silver, Mr. Fairbanks said that while he did not question the lofty purposes inspiring the Colorado senator yet they had carried him to the point where all else was dependent on this one question of silver. It was an advo cacy so ardent that the senator seemed ready to follow his ignis fatuus, al ! though it plunged the country into the morass of dishonor. Commenting on Mr. Teller's speech on Cuba, China and the need of a strong foreign policy, Mr. Fairbanks declared that he feared the Colorado senator would be willing to see his country wrapped in the flames of war if his one aim of free silver was accomplished; for, said the Indiana senator, the first gun fired would bring us to a depreciated silver basis. FIFTEEN-MINUTE RULE. Mr. Wolcott (Col.) was the first speak er under the fifteen-minute rule, which wont into effect at 2 o'clock. He thought that any senator, whatever his finan cial views, could vote for the Teller resolution, as it involved nothing ex cept the carrying into effect of the gov ernment's plain obligations. He thought that denunciation and abuse heaped upon those who supported the resolu tion were unwarranted, for he did not think the man was yet born who would betray his government by offering t^ pay its obligation in spurious money. He referred with scathing sarcasm to the sale of bonds by the Cleveland ad ministration in 1894, denouncing it as one of the darkest pages in American financial history. He declared that the men of the West might be entrusted with the national honor. "We have." he said, "never betrayed our government and never will. We intend to pay all our obligations in good money and in nothing else." He felt that the resolution ought to be passed without change, because it meant just what it said and its de clarations were in no sense a violation of the national honor, either direct or implied. Mr. Morgan (Ala.) supported the reso lution in a carefully prepared speech basing his support upon statistics and deductions indicating "the impossibil- Reluctantly Supportingthe Menacing Attitude of Rus sia in the Far East. attention of President McKinley and the department of state immediately the pressing importance of taking such steps as may be sufficient to safegua-d the commercial rights and interests which have been secured for American citizens in China under the most fa vored nation clauses of treaties con cluded with that empire, and which ar* now threatened by the aggressive pol icy of certain European powers. BERLIN, Jan. 28.— The German gov ernment has no news confirming the details of the assassination of the Ger man sailor, Schulz, as announced by the the Mercury, of Shanghai. LONDON, Jan. 28.— 1t is announced in a special dispatch from Shanghai received here today, that four German sailors have been murdered by the Chi nese. A special dispatch from Shang hai also has the German admiral threatens to take measures. LONDON, Jan. 29.— A dispatch to the Daily news from Odessa says it is re ported th^re that M. Zinovieff, the Rus sian ambassador to Turkey,' holds an ultimatum in readiness to be delivered to the Porte, in certain contingencies, to enforce the sultan's acceptance of Prince George of Greece aa governor of Crete. LONDON, Jan. 29.— An anonymous article in the Contemporary Review asserts that the visit of Prince Henry of Prussia to Osborne. while outward bound with the Geflon and the Deutschland, was for the purpose of explaining that the Emperor William's "mailed first" speech was not intended as a warning for Great Britain. The tact of the Prince of Wales, the article says, baffled Prince Henry's frantic effort, during his mysterious visit to London, to deliver a similar personal message to his royal highness, although Prince Henry pursued the Prince of Wales even to a private box at the theater. ity of striking silver from among the money metals." Mr. Foraker (Ohio) thought the reso lution's meaning ought to be made clear, it being evident there was a great diversity of opinion on that point. He did not think the resolution was any more than declaratory of the law and that was as far as the declaration went. He thought the statement in the resolution that such coinage as con templated by it was not in derogation of the rights of creditors could only mean the free and unlimited coinage of silver. He was, therefore, opposed to the resolution. Mr. Chllton (Tex.) in a legal argn- Party Wrecked.

PAUL GLOBE, ) CORCORAN BUILDING. \ Sp<vial to the Globe. WASHINGTON, Jan. 28.— Land Com missioner Hermann, in refusing to al low pine timber on Red lake and Leech lake Indian reservations in Minnesota to be estimated on the landing scale instead of in the tree has called down the wrath not only of the Indians, but of many other citizens of Northern Minnesota. It is claimed that the pres ent estimating force, which Commis sioner Hermann has so often com mended, is not very much of an im provement over the Douglass or the Staples crew, against which so many charges were preferred and which were the subject of a good deal of Investi gation. Since Chief Seeleye tried to get $3 per day expense money addi tional to regular salary, some of the Northern Minnesota people in Wash ington have been looking into matters, and it is now said that, in spite of the fact that Commissioner Hermann of ten gave it out that none of the former estimators were to be allowed on the present force, there is one of them now at work and he is a brother in-law of Seeleye. Some sensational statements are made by the representa tives of the Indians here. It is claim ed that notwithstanding the records of the Crookston land office, showing the amount of pine sold in August, 1895, fully six times that amount is re ported to have been cut and scaled at Northern Minnesota mills. Unless con gress takes some action to reimburse the Indians on the difference between the Douglass estimate and that of Spe cial Inspector Wright, there will be no redress for them. Representative McCleary today ap pointed Hon. Ashley Coffman. of St. James; Dr. Le Roy Brown, of Heron Lake, and Prof. W. H.

NELSON'S OBJECTION. Mr. Nelson (Minn.) stated that his objection to the resolution was that It ignored the duty of the government to maintain the parity between the metals, as imposed upon it by law.

C, Jan. 28.— The Bteamer Danube arrived at Departure bay late this evening bringing news of thf- wreck of the steamer Corona with 245 passengers aboard. The Corona struck a rock near the mouth of Skeena river and at once commenced to sink. Life boats were lowered and the passen gers were conveyed to the beach of the Skeena river. The steamer Al-Ki went to the rescue. She Is now on her way south with the unfortunate gold-seek ers. The Corona struck the rock on Tues day morning, bow on. and is now lying with stern submerged. It is feared that the Corona will prove a total wreck and the whole of her cargo will be lost.

He was Jollied a great deal today at the capitol relative to his gubernatorial boom, and frankly admitted that he was in the hands of his friends. Representative Fletcher has received protests from the Minneapolis Typo graphical union against the antl-scalp ing bill. A. B. Stickney, of St. Paul, called on Secretary of the Treasury Gage today. The chief of engineers will probably make a recommendation to the secreta ry of war late today favorable to begin ning work on lock an 1 dam No. 2 in the Mississippi between Minneapolis and St. Paul. It is understood that the work will be done by day labor instead of by con tract. One reason for this recommen dation is that the department is anx ious to have work started with as little delay as possible. Another is that the site of the dam is underlaid with sand rock. It is explained that this rock is susceptible to the influence of air and water. It becomes dust when exposed to the former, and mud when mixed with the latter. As the region around the site of the dam .has a number of springs, it is feared that one of them might be in the neighborhood of the dam and cause a delay if the work is done by contract. For these reasons it will be difficult to figure on the exact cost of the work, and a more expeditious way of con structing the lock and dam is by day labor under the supervision of Capt. Abbott. Although It is not certain, it is proba ble that the secretary of war will ap prove the recommendation of the chief of engineers, and the order will be is sued to Capt. Abbott to begin work as soon as possible. The house committee on public lands today, with but two dissenting: votes, decided to report favorably the free homestead bill.

COLUMBUS, 0., Jan. 2S.— The two star witnesses in the alleged senatorial bribery investigation were examined by the senate investigating committee tu day. They are Representative J. C. Otis, of Hamilton county, who claims to have been offered a bribe to vote for Senator Hanna, and Thomas C. Camp bell, attorney, who acted as the legal representative of Otis. There was nothing in the testimony of either witness to even Indicate that Senator Hanna. Maj. Dick or Maj. Rathbone had any connection with O^n. Boyce. through whom, it ia claimed, the alleged negotiations were conducted. In fact, Attorney Campbell, who came all the way from New York to testify, t'«>k occasion to say he did not believe Sena tor Hanna was interested in or knew Boyce. Moreover, Boyce himself had declared to Campbell that he did not know Hanna, and that if his personal wishes were consulted, he would ; to see him defeated. Campbell produc ed a roll of bills in denominations of $100 and $00, aggregating $1,7:7), which he claimed Boyce had paid to him during the negotiations. Campbell said if Boyce returned to Hamilton county he would be glad to return the money, otherwise he would use part of it in pushing a suit for damages again.st a Columbus paper. The investigation began in the morn ing in the judiciary room of the senate with but three of the committee pres ent. Senator Burke, chairman; Sena tor Long and Senator Garfleld. The lat ter went home in the afternoon, leaving tut the chairman and Mr. Long to hear Cu.mpbell'3 testimony. Representative Otis testified that he had met Harry Boyce in Cincinnati first on Jan. 7 last. About 11 o'clock on the morning of that day. Friday, he re ceived a long-distance telephone mes sage from a man at the Great Southern hotel in Columbus, who said he was (Jen.

Between 5 and 6 o'clock Otis wf-nt to the Gibson house and to Boyce*s room. No. 226. He met Boyce, and the latter said to him that though he was a stranger to Otis he wished to see him on very important business, that he represented J. Pierpor.t Morgan, of New York, that Mr. Morgan had gr<;at in tfrests in Ohio, which he desir have looked aftt-r, and that he was ;il.s i a fri> nd of C. C. Shane, of New York. During the conversation the senato rial matter was touched upon, and Boyce asked as to Mr. Hanna's chances to which Otis replied that h^ did not think them very good. Boyce said that that night or the following night Mr. Shane was to have an interview with President MoKlnley; that both the president and Mr. Shane were inter ested In the Ohio situation, especially the former. Personally, Boyce said, he did not care who was elected. After telling Mr. Otis a number of other sto ries after the same fashion, they arated, with an understanding that an other meeting would be held the fol lowing afternoon. Then It was that Mr. Otis decided he needed a lawyer, and went -to see Mr. Campbell. A meeting took place the next afternoon at the Gibson house. The conversation was largely along the same line as at the preceding meeting. On the Stand. Finally, Boyce and Campbell were In troduced, and most of the business after that was transacted between them. Senator GarfleM cross-examined the witness. Otis admitted that he had made no special endeavor to find out who Mr. Boyce was. He had not been Introduced to him either by letter or in any other way. During the conversa tion the names of no Ohio people were mentioned In connection with the mat ter of the senatorHhip. Mr. otis said; that nothing was said about Dick or Hollenbeck or Daugherty or MaJ. Rath bone, and that Boyce did not proclaim that he came as the agent of Senato* Hanna, or Hanna had any connection with the matter. CAMPBELL'S STORY. An adjournment was taken until afternoon, when Mr. Campbell was ex amined. Senator Garfleld had left In the meantime, but Senators Burke and Long, of the committee, were present, A number of the members of the in vestigating committee of the house were in attendance, and also Attorneys Daugherty and Cyrus Huling. After Mr. Campbell had been sworn, he said he desired to have the rule prohibiting attorneys from taking part removed In order that he might be cross-examined, If they desired. This request was granted by the committee. Mr. Campbell's testimony was large ly repetition of that given by- Mr. Otis In the morning. He said Boyce and Otis came to his room. There they talked on general subjects, and, when asked as to where in New York he lived, Boyce said Mount Vernon. During the conversation Boyce Bald he had a strong and loving regard for the president, and talked so strongly about this that finally Campbell began to think he was overstating himself. Otis finally left the room, and I then asked Boyce directly what he wanted. Boyce finally said he had como to help Hanna in his election. (I;imp bell said to him: "Did not you come from the presi dent?" to which Boyce replied he had, but in which Mr. Campbell declared that he took no belief. Boyce at last said he would pay Otis 12,600 for his vote, and admitted that that was the proposition he had ropae to make. Mr. Campbell replied that he did not think Otis would accent any proposition. This Interview with Boyce was on Saturday night. On Sunday, Campbell went to the Gibson house and had an other conversation with Boyce. ''amp bell told Boyce * »tis would not listen to the proposition made, and he did not know what proposition he would listen to. MONET OFFERED, Boyce replied that the amount offered was a munificent one, as Hanna al ready had seventy-four votes without Drosto or Lane. Campbell replied: "Then you are doing this out of the go< dness of your heart, as seventy-four • - are enoutfh to elect a senator In Ohio." Hoyc- replied yes, but that he wanted ow what he could do. and be sides there ml^ht be a Blip and he want ed to get the vote of Otis and Drosto and I^ane. Boyce further .said that he v. anted Campbell for his attorney to win the nun over, and would give him 11,000. Campbf-li replied that he had no ob jection to getting $1,000, but he did not think he could accept the proposition. Finally Boyce pulled out a larg< velope and counted out what he said was $1,000 md passed it over and said: "Here Is 11,000." Campbell said to Boyce: "What do you want Otis to do if your proposition is accepted?" Boyoe replied that he would want him to write a letter to the president to the effect that he would vote for Hanna. Boyce then wrote a telegram directed to President BfcKinley and reading: •'For the l^-Ht interests of Ohio and the Republican party, I will cast my for M. A. Hanna for senator for the short and loner terms." This telegram Campbell was to sub mit to Otis and If the latter accepted the proposition hr- was to *\u;t\ It and the teN'Kram to be returned to B who was to forward it to the president. Mr. Campbell carried I trr.-im away with hlrn and Bhowed it to I : Bliss, who volunteered to copy the tele gram and sign Otis' name to it, whlr-h was done. At the next m*«-tini» the telegram, or rather a copy of it. was shown to Boyce and he whs told that Otis had finally consented and that there was the telegram. Campbell said to Boyce: "You will now pay $1,750 and $1,750 when you reach Columbus?" whereupon Boyct counted out the 5750 more. Campbell said: "This does not make $1,750." Boyce replied: "You hay»- already got $1,000 nnd this makt-a the $1." Campbell replied: "I thi i $1,000 was for my fee." Boyce replied that he could not give more at that time as he could n I It erst him more than 13,500 ?t that time, although Mr. Otis was to $6, ."00 more when Hanna was elected. Mr. Campbell then demanded a re oeipt, which B >■<■■• did not (-.-m- to give, although a receipt was finally written for the 11,750 already paid and the ad ditional $1,750 that was to be paid on reaching Columbus.

The plan was that Campb<ll and and Otis were to meet the next morning at 9 o'clock and come to Co lumbus.

This concluded the examination, but it will probably be resumed Monday, when Senator Alexander may desire to cross-examine Mr. Campbell.
