the provisions of section 2.324 of the revised

, located after May 10. 1872. and until patent .
shall issue therefor, not less than SIOO worth

Senator Don ( ameron on Monday broke bis
usual alienee and delivered a short speech on
the financial question. It was a remarkable >
. speech, coining, as it did. from a man who
rarely makes n speech, and when he docs can .
I scarcely be heard In the galleries. The
: fences favoring the free coinage of American
j silver and the levying of n small duty on the
I Imported product*. Mr. Cameron -aid his
j suite was opposed to anything that would
harm others, and believed In the building up
! policy rather than the policy of disruption.
I For that renson he could not vote for any
thing that would endanger the property of
< olorado. Nevada, or the other mining states.
For the same reason he would vote to repeal
the state hank tax. so that the .Southern
States might be benefited; no harm could
come to other sections from such a eour-e.
In all that he proposed to do Mr. Cameron
said his people would bear him out. There
was such convincing Ingle In what he said
and such modest action coupled with argu
ments so pungent, thst the speech represent
ing the sentiment of a great state like Penn
sylvania made a profound Impression.

Semite wa* taken up and Mr Wolcott << olo
rado, addressed the Senate. He sal.l he wa*
rea.lv to vole on the cloture rule If the Senate
wished to settle the matter. In speaking of
the repeal bill Mr. Wolcott said that he bc
lb-ved that the unconditional repeal of the
Sherman law would bring untold suffering on
the country ami that if he were to consult
hi- own judgment he would be Inclined to let
the blow i ome at once and nave It over. But
I If hi* associates of kindred view*, some of
whom had grown old in the service of their
country a-.-l who having In their long legls

turning in their view* should deem It best !
that tb.- measure should be contested inch by
inch, he should cheerfully and cordially Join
with them In meeting any test of endurance
which the majority might see fit to impose
upon them.
Mr. Teller occupied the balance of the time
until 2 o'clock In a speech against tlie pro

esolul tbe Pn ildent for vio
lating the -pint of the constitution In on- j
deavm ing to destroy the Independence of the
i law-making branch of the government by ]
-coking to coerce Congress Into tlie passage
of the repeal bill. The resolution went over
\ untli Monday w hen Its discussion promises a
sensation. The cloture resolution was then '
taken upand Mr. Turpie (Democrat,lndiana)
argued against Its adoption. Mr. Dubois op- :
po-cd any change In tbe rules in the midst of
m exciting debate. Mr ( all regarded clo
| ttire as a proposition to forbid debate and op
j posed It, especially at this time when the 1
question cngro-slng (he attcnl on was of .
such transcendent importance as to justify
the fullest debate. At tbe conclusion of Mr.
Cali's remarks the resolution was referred to
the committee oil rules.
On motion of Mr. Yoorhees the Senate at
3:4U o'clock went Into executive session and
at 4 p. m. adjourned until Monday.
Forty-Third I> »y.
Senate—Senator Stewart's resolution de
claring the “independence of the co-ordina
tion of tbe government must bn maintained,
and use of power and Influence of one de
partment to control the action of another Is
In violation iff the constitution, and destruct
ive of our policy and form of government,’ 1
was taken up, and Mr. Stewart proceeded to
address the Senate upon it. He said the
president, armed with more than a hundred
thousand high-paid offices to bestow, with the
veto power, designed only for extraordinary
. occasions, backed by concentrated aapltal
and llattered by the press, turned bis face to
ward the Senate wing of the enpilol, and. In
j angry and menacing ton”*, said If the repre
sentatives there assembled legislated In preju
dice. or In behalf of sectional and selfish In
j lert-sts, the time when the corner-stone was
j laid and the circumstances surrounding It
would not be worth commemorating. This
: declaration, said Mr. Stewart, which bsd been
| cheered and encouraged by a thoughtless
j Multitude, had been construed by a venal press
j as u rebuke from their president to a guilty
j and venal Senate. He then quoted at length
I from Maoaulay’» history o.' England as to Um
pftrUMMQUury trovblf wJHi (tH klgff.
Coming to the present time, Mr. Stewart
charged that the president. In disregard of
| bis oath of office to execute the laws, had
permitted the secretary of the treasury to vi
olate the act w hich made the purchase of four
and a half million ounces of silver bullion
per month mandatory, by exercising au un
lawful discretion in purchasing a smaller
j amount.
Mr. Stewart read the President * biography
!on the congressional directory, the authen
ticity of which could not he questioned.
“At 16 years of age he became nu assistant
teacher lu the New Vork tnsMtute fur the
1 Blind," read Mr. Stewart, and then he aided .
"It looks now as If he had not gotten entirely
over that Idea. [Laughter.; In 1855 he went
'Vest In search of employment," continued
the biography; “let us see what his Idea of
the West 1- " -aid Mr. Stewart, and then he
read on : "Kugaged with his uncle at Buffalo
\ laughter 1 to aid In the compilation of the
.mericau herd book. | Laughter. \ Upon re
tiring from the president y." the biography
read*, he located In New York City and re
sumed the practice of law. New York was
s great place to study finance, said Mr. Stew
art He would there come lu contact with
men w ho knew less than he did.
If wo would stop the necessity for revolu
tion and preserve the equilibrium of the de
partment* of the government we must protest
now. The attention of the people must be
called to tbe aggressions It Is (be only way
to preserve the independence of the co-ordi
nate branches of the government."
The repeal bill was then taken up and Mr.
Don Cameron iff Pennsylvania addressed the
Senate In opposition to It. He defended tho
Sherman act and said we needed more silver,
not less. He submitted the following propo
sitions
"I propose a gold loan of so many hundred
million dollar* a* < on gross may decide, to be
bought at the market rate and held in the
trea-ury as the gold reserve held In the Bank
of France ami by tlie governments of tbe
l.atln Union. I propose to open our mints to
the free coinage of American silver. Imposing
a duty on the Import of foreign silver.
"1 propose further, to repeal (he tax on
-talc bank circulation. 1 would also press
once more for action In favor of our shipping.
To meet In part the deficit In our Income of
next year, I would re-lmposc the duty of 2
cents a pound on sugar and repeal the bounty
Then I would wait a year to see how the sys
tem worked and how far we were affected by
foreign influence."
Mr Bate then addressed the Senate again-’
the repeal bUI.

petition adopted at n tna«* meeting at ( lcvc

auv senators were Interested In national

the tariff or the election law* be acted upon
until after January 15th. so that the states of
Wyoming. Montana and Washington may
elect other senators. Laid over. Senator
l’erklns spoke against the repeal bill. Mr.
Stewart then took the floor and read news
paper charge to the effect that senators and
member- were influenced by presidential pat
ronage to vote against silver. Mr. I’almer
wanted bint to name some one who hud been
so Influenced, but Mr. Stewart thought It en
i tlreiv unnecessary. Mr. Stewart closed his
speech for the day with a passionate Indict
ment of England as a monster that stalked
through the country breaking down tbe In
terest* of -even state* and territories; that
claimed to direct the legislation of Congress,
and whose voice had been heard Inst week on

Washington. Montana and Wyoming, was
then taken up. and Mr. Dubois addressed tbe
Senate In advocacy of Us adoption. Mr.
M'tchc'.l of Oregon opposed It. Mr. Chandler
of N. w Hampshire alluded to the senators
who had changed their votes on the question
i of sealing the three appointed senator*.
“It may have been," said Mr. Wolcott,
“that some of those claimants for seat* In the
Bennie would have been admitted had their
■ politic- been different or bad the question be
fore the Senate been different.'’ He spoke of
the efforts of tbe repeal men to prolong the
sessions lu order t<> tire out the minority.
"We arc meeting them fairly as men now and
1 endeavoring to see that thl* question Is pre

Mi. Aldrich was occupying a seat directly
in front of Mr. Gorman.
••We understand,” continued Mr. Wolcott,
“that we are to he met with a demand that

Mr. Gorman then replied to Mr. Wolcott,

and declared that they were bringing re

Mr. Jones of Arkansas submitted an amend

three other persons to he selected by the

The repeal hill wa* then taken up and Mr.

An official statement ot tbe pension bureau
shows the total number of pensions granted

Revision expect* to dispose of those sus
pended under a recent order of the bureau
by October 10. Probably 75 per cent of
these cases will be returned to tbe rolls,
although In many cases the rates were

The situation In the Senate, n* day after

those who are making the battle for uncondi

statement of the truth to say that the repeal

street illuminations consist of 75,000
electric and gus lights, which are used
to the best advantage, and the down
town streets present an uppearancc
of dazzling magnificence. There are
twelve electric arches, or panoramas
each illuminated by upward of 1,000
incandescent lights, and these are a
never failing source of attraction to
the tens of thousands of people who
throng the streets on illumination
nights. One of the most remarkable
triumphs of art over electricity is the
Electric bulletin, which proclaims
words of welcome in letters of fire to
tiie visitors, special honor being paid
, to the visitors of the day.
Special illuminations are announced

A FEARFUL SLAUGHTER.
Twelve Person* Killed l>y a Collision or.
the IVnbnsh IConil in Indiana.
A terrible accident occurred on the Wabash
road at Klngsburg, Indiana, on the 22nd.
Men, women and children were sacrificed Ir
a wreck, which U without parallel In the his
tory of Northern Indiana. Twelve live* wen
crushed out without a moment's warning.
The Chicago express was running in twe
sections, and had to puss a freight wbict
stood on the siding at Klugshurg The flrsi
section passed and signaled that there niu
another behind, but the freight hrakenian,
Herbert Thompson, did not notice It and
opened the switch. This let the passenger It
upon the freight train and caused thi
tragedy.
The result of the crash was fearful. Tin
terrific Impact of the two mighty tnuchinei
drove the tank and cab of the freight engine
hack into a carload of dressed beef, the eu
glneer and fireman remalulng in tlie cab and
by a miracle escaping with thrlr lives, tin
fireman sustaining a fractured leg.
Engine 473 of tlie passenger train wa* torn
to pieces, the smoker behind It was forced
through the tank on tiie pilot of the engine.
The splinters killed Engineer Green and the
escaping steam badly scalded his fireman,
Barber. In the smoker was where most ol
the fatalities occurred, and It was demolished
Tbe third car,which was comfortably filled,
was thrown across the track. Not one ol
the passengers In this car suffered serious In
jury. Ktrange as It may seem, In the next
car, a sleeper, which was but partially
wrecked, several persons were Instantly i
killed. The last car remained upon the
track and. beyond a severe shock, no easu
allies are reported.
Twelve persons were found to he dead and i
sevetal others will die.
The work of rescue was carried bravely for- i
ward and deeds of heroism were performed |
by tho pa«senger* and villager*. On lin pro-!
vised stretchers the dead bodies were carried !
to the depot, where they were ranged side by
side upon the platform.
The waiting rooms were converted Into s |
hospital and the surgeon* called to the sceno
of the wreck labored with untiring energy.
The wounded were made as comfortable as
possible. The village women labored m
though some sudden bereavement haJ visited
their own homes.
A Hexagon Silver Doliar.
A special to the Ht. Louis Kqmblic from
Bonham. Texas, say*; It ha* just leaked out
here that a syndicate Including prominent
men of Texas, Colorado, Missouri and Khii
«n* Is being formed to coin silver into dollars
of a hexagon shape at the rate of $1,000,00P
per month or more If the legislature* of those
stales will declare such coin a legal tender.
It Is claimed that each state can do so, and
that no Individual or corporation Is prohibited
from coining as much silver standard dollars
as they wish, provided the shape of such
coins la not tbe same as the coins Issued by
the United States government. The citizens
of California Issued the hexagon SSO gold
piece In the ’so's, and no one disputed their
right to do so.
Crimes on the Strip.
A small-sized riot occurred at Perry Thurs

RAISING FALSE HOPES.
i Tin Administration »*I4 to bo Hangulno
of International Action on tho
Hllvor tfurstlin.
A Washington dispatch of the Associated
I’rcss say*
There Is no doubt but tho Intimations w hich
I those senators who arc nearest to tho admin
! Istrallon have thrown out In Ihs last few days
' that Mr. t lereland will favor any leglgUUoo
looking to tho remonetization of silver on the
lines laid down In the Chicago platform are
haring the effect of bringing about a better
feeling uiilong Herrrocratlc senators, says a
morning paper, and tliCfo H little doubt but
that the passage of the pending law will be fol
lowed by vigorous action on the part of the
administration In the direction of aasepihllng .
. another Internationa) monetary conference ,
that will meet under different c*«dltlont from ,
those that have surrounded all previous one-, j
There will not longer he the hope the United j
| states will try to deal with the silver question j
■lnglc-hnmled.
| It Is tho belief of tlie leading men In both
1 political parties that when the nations of the ;
1 world arc confronted with the knowledge
j that whatever Is done to re-establish silver
must he by International agreement, there
will not be much dilticulty in coming to such
mi agreement. In the conferences that have
met heretofore, the great commercial nations
of Europo have held aloof from entering Into
any agreement bccauso of their belief that the
United States would take care of silver alone,
on account of the large production in this
country. Tho unconditional repeal of the
Sherman law would disabuse their minds
of this cause and would open up the only j
avenue through which the bl-inctulllc stan
dard can ho reached with safety.
This belief that the administration will do
something In favor of International Id-metal
lism Is tending to modify the opposition of
many senators ami make the early passage of
I the bill more hopeful than It would other
j wise be. There Is also a movement on foot
looking to the exclusion of all compromise
propositions.
; Il ls urged that If the bill Is to have the
, greatest ctTect from nn International stand- '
point, It must he for tho unconditional repeal
of tho stiver-purchasing law, 6u as lo g.vc
notice to all the world that the United States
Is no longer In the market as a purchaser of
silver bullion. Any sort of a compromise j
bill whereby the United States Is put In the j
position of continuing the purchase of silver,
even though It be for a limited time only, ;
would not have as great clTcct on the Euro
pean nations n law stopping the purchase at
once.
KILLED BY A BOMB.
A Non-Union Seamen's 1.0. l kl.ik House
lit San Francisco Wrecked.
One of the most hideous crimes, resulting
from the long-standing feud between union
! ntid non-union sailor*, was perpetrated nt
j San Francisco on the 34th. Shortly after
! midnight the southern part of the city was
1 r-haken by a tcrrlfij explosion. A dynamite
bomb had been tired In front of a Water
Front hoarding house tilled with non-union
sailors. The front of the building was blown
| to atoms. Six of the inmates were horribly
| mangled. Two of these were Instantly killed
1 and the others may die. By whom the bomb
was fired is not definitely known. The own
ers of the building openly charge the deadly
deed up to some members of the Seamen’s
Union. Of these John Tyrell has bean ar
rested.
The bouse was kept by John Curtin*. It
was Curtins’ custom to secure berths for bis
patrons on ship* employing non-union men.
In this way he Incurred the enmity of the
Seamen’s Union. Less than a week ago his
place was entered by a crowd of union men
led by John Tyrell. Curtins was threatened,
and when the men left they told him his
house had only a short time to exist. Sun
day night all tho Inmates retired a* usual.
Soon after midnight an explosion occurred,
slinking the city for blocks. The entire front
of tho building was torn away, carrying the
front of the adjacent structure with It.
Men were thrown from their beds across tho
street.
The sidewalk where the explosion occurred
was ripped into ntoms. A black hole with
smoldering beams about It showed where tho
bomb blew up. Four groaning victims lay In
the street near by and beside them were two
corpses, stripped of nearly every bit of cloth
ing, laying In a pool of blood. An ambu
lance was soon upon the scene nnd the vic
tims were rescued from the debris nnd taken
to the hospital.
Anarchists in Vienna.
Arrests of anarchists In Vienna continue
and the police are more than ever convinced
that the raid they made Saturday, when a
number of anarchistic bombs, revolvers nnd
leather coats for carrying bombs, wore gath
ered, nipped a wholesale anarchistic outbreak
In the tiud.
I‘aper.- found upon the men in custody
show that the anarchists there arc Intimately
connected with the anarchists In England and
America, nnd the bombs now In possi'Aslon s>f
the police were made according to the rule*
laid down by llerr Most. It is also said that
the Russian anarchists are in communication
with the anarchist* In Spain.
A Russian Warship Sunk.
Fragments of woodwork, boats and other
w reckage have floated ashore In the Gulf of
Finland, showing that the Russian wnrshlp

The hotly of a sailor, who Is supposed to
belong to the crew, has been washed ashore
in tho Gulf of Finland, and t Is known that
heavy gales swept over those waters soon after
she left the port. There is no doubt, an the
admiralty state, that the I'ousalka has foun
dered.
The Throne of Russia.
It Is rumored nt Berlin that the Czar of
Russia will alter the succession to the throne,
making the Grand Duke .Michael, his young
est son, hiss successor.
It is supposed that the reason for thin step
In that ho cznrotvltcli is of r.o sulky a nature

second son, cares little for political life, lie

Michael.
Train Robbers Foiled.
Four men attempted Thursday night to rob
the express car on the Illinois Central rail
road nt ( entralia. They ordered the engineer
nnd 11 reman to surrender, but the/ did not do
so ami were shot, though not fatally. Tho
robbers then proceeded to break Into the ex
press car. The messenger and conductor
who was with him opened n fusillade hut no
one wan hurt, and the robbers wctc getting
the bent of the light when a passenger with a
shotgun ’ appeared nml wounded one of the
robbers named Jones. The others then fled.
Jones confessed and gave the names of his

Nullifying the Law.
Lots of sliver offered in response to counter
offer of the treasury of 74 cents per ounce
were bought Saturday aggregating 210,000
ounces. With this purchase the silver bought
this month aggregate* only 1,04.000 ounces,
with only three purchase days left. The ag
gregate of tho month, which earlier promise,!
to reach fI.JIOO.COO ounces, will not probably
reach 2,500.000 ounces. 1
The work of nullifying the law as to sliver

THE STRANGEST WOMAN
AN INMATE OF THE BROOK
LYN PENITENTIARY.

it Midget—tike tell of llrr l.lfe nml

Mary Ellen Holds the Record.
There is at present in the Brooklyn j
penitentiary a woman who, fur extra
ordinary strength, hat- probably no
match in the history of tho institu
tion. This is all tho more remark
able when it i* taken into account
that this woman is a niidgot not a
monster. She is still a young woman
of scarcely more than 25 years of age.
For the last dozen year-, ever since
she was a mere girl, slio has passed
in and out of those grim portals
through a scarcely protormitted
series of incarcerations. It Is duo
this strange incorrigible to state
that, although her life has been
largely spent in the company of
criminals, she has never once, ho far
as can be learned, been commit tod
for crime of any sort. She ha* never
been photographed. Tho name by
which this famous scrap is known
over tho city is Mary Ellon. As the
product of vicious surroundings she
is more to bo pitied, helped, nnd. if
possible, saved than scorned "and
shunned. She has had many names.
Ilor real name, as she herself and
others state, and under which .-lie i*
now registered at tho ponitontiury.
Is Kgan. A singlo member of her
family still lives about tho place-
Her father and mother are both dead.
Mary Ellon wa* born looking out
upon tho prison and its scenes. Sho
grew up among a motley set of
toughs.
Her exploits and encounters wore
frequent and dosporato. At such
time she would rathor light than eat
So gieatly was sho dreaded that for
fear of infuriating Iter all who knew
hor said: "If Mary Ellon wants any
thing let her ltavo it” Tho truth Is
that Mary Ellen hud a vicious and
uncontrollable temper which sho con
stantly suffered to got tho best of
hor. Such a state of mind is rondcrod
almost chronic by tho thought that
she has been unfortunate, has gone
from bad to worse and naturally foels
that at last nobody oaros for hor. She
has some good traits, nevertheless.
She can be grateful for u kindness.
She lias never committed a crlmo and
if brought under good influences and
got away from corner saloons she
would probably work. Tho following
official statements concerning hor will
be road with interest:
Alonzo Brymer. the former warden
of tho Raymond street jail, said:
have known Mary Ellen for years.
Sho is monstrously strong. Sho is
known as ‘the girl who bonds tho
burs.’ She is stronger than a great
many men. When sho first came
under my charge I had to have her
put in the black coll, but I soon made
up ray mind that I would try kind
ness. I did and I got along well
enough with Mary Ellen after that.
The trouble is that she thinks every
body's hand is against her and that
makes hor desperate.'’
I called on Warden Ilayes at tho
penitentiary.
"Is there a woman hero, wnrdon,”
I asked, "by tho name of Marv
Ellen?"
“There is such a woman here.”
"I would like very much to see
hor,” 1 said, "but before seeing her
would like to ask you some ques
tions.”
Tho warden assented.
"Is it true that Mary Ellen, as she
is called, is the strongest woman who
has ever entered this prison.”
"That is tho bolief of all who urc
horo,” replied the warden. "I be
lieve that for hor size she is the
strongest woman that can ho pro
duced in this country to-day. I know
that sounds like a very sweeping
statement, but novortholcss that is
my conviction. I havo had tho
custody of a good many women, from
all parts of the country, zinu havo

mot n good many strong ones, but
never any woman that approachod
Mary Ellon in strength. Everybody
here will toll you the sumo thing.”
••Is she not a midget?”
••She is a small woman, with small
hands, small feet, small bones nnd a.
nervous organization. But every rib
is Iron, ovory sinew whipcord, every
! nerve lightning. Her grip is a vise
i and tho person she dutches a limp
[dinger. Sho hat quite a bit of
Hclenco, too. and when it comes to
putting up hor hands, she would be
more than a match for Maggio, the.
boxor of Mulberry Bond. ’
• •Cun you givo mo any instances of
her wonderful strength?”
••There are enough of them to fill
a hook,” replied tho warden.
••When, for causo, it is found neces
sary to put hor in tho 'cooler’ it
. takes two men to manage her. nn:l
1 then they get roughly linndlod.
| When she once gets hold of you sho
I novor lotß go.”
••On ono occasion.” said the war
' don. "u bar of iron had laid out in
! the rain and had grown rusty. Tho
■ burr that nt one oml of it was screwed
jon a thread had rusted fast It was
I necessary to use it, and in order to
I do so it was found necessary to rc

••Wo called in some of tho strong
i cat men in the penitentiary, ono after
anothor, but none of them could re
move tho burr. At hist soino ono
suggested that wo call in Mary

with dorisivo laughter, hut tho
laughter didn't last long Mary
j Ellen, when she was sent for to piny
! tho monkey-wrench act, came at
once. It was tho only time sho over
did come when she was sent for.
She smilod scornfully nt those stand
ing around, laid hor small hand upon
the rusty burr, and, with a quick
turn of tho >vrist, moved it nnd then,
unwound it.”
The assistant matron said in nn
, swor to inquiries:
1 "There is a story horo that on ono
t occasion they had to ropo Mary Ellon
