'J1 1. tiir:iian, Kan- i mm, White, C'ockrell, Vilas, (iray, Wal- thu'l and ISIackburn, the committee ap pointed to wait on Secretary Carlisle and j to submit to him propositions looking to compromise on the repeal bill, remained in "executive session" with him at the treasury for an hour and a half, tiormau was the first to leave. Carlisle was seen 1 after his senatorial visit, rs had departed 1 and stated that he had nothing whatever to communicate as to the nature of their . call or its result. The vuiting senatorial ambassadors returned to the Capitol in traKgliuK order.sonie of the m first calling , at the White House. Cam len, -Harris, ' aud Jones of Arkansas subseiueiitly held ' a long consultation with Cockrell. So fur j as could be ascertained nothing definite had been accomplished. ' Where the Contestant "Are At." Carlisle, it is said, was unyielding in the , original stand taken by him in favor of j ' unconditional repeal. The belitf, how- I ever, exists in committee that the concede a repeal to take effect at a future took up his se-ial again date, and that was one of the contentions dincussed for some time. The repeal men want the time fixed for January, or at the latest July 1, ls'..."i, while the more conservative si !ver men want it to extend to Jan. 1, ls'.nj. The extremists insist t that repeal shall not take effect until j after the close of this administration, the amount ot silver purchases being reduced in the meantime to $-;.inHi,utM worth each ' month. , Anti-lieealer See Troulile Ahead. One tiling was apparent In the senate, aud that was the evident alertness of t lie anti-repealers. They snuffed the battle from afar the bat tie of cloture, and all! the speeches were devoted to showing that j cloture was all wrong. The senate is still i in the li g:slative day of Tuesday, having j taken recesses instead of adjourning each day. The subject before the senate was ! the correction of the journal on Teller's J motion regarding the absence of his own name. Stewart made a speech denouncing the gold ring, he having read the speech of Comptroller Kckles at the bankers' con vention at Chicago He intimated that all the comptrollers played into the bauds of the banks and wneu their terms were ended the b inks took care of them. TJieu he cjncluded by saying that the vice presi dent would not make himself infamous by any assistance in changing the rules. Dubai l olluwa l'p the Line. .This was the keynote and Dubois spok e on the same line in warning, fleprecation and denunciation of any attempt to change the rules so that the majority could insist on a vote. Palmer of Illiuois broke in after Dubois had closed with a request for unan imous consent that Teller's name be entered on the journal as, present. He though such a reasonable request should be conrtiouBly acceded to. lYis all with aly sarcasm. Of course there were ob jections and Palmer threw up his hands andsaid 1 abandon "the motion in despnir." As he sat down the wail of a child in the gallery was heard and Palmer exclaimed "Listen to the echo of my despair." Laughter. Call opposed a change of rules, and Butler said there wouid he bedlam in the chamber if they could be changed. Quite Cleer of f.iitler. The South Carolinian used a clever ar gument in which he made it appear that I Secretary Carlisle Thinks It May Amount to About .-.O.ooo.ooo. WasIUM.,tus, Oct. -U Senator McPh.r on, from the ilnance committee, has sub mitted to th j senate the report of the committee on Stewart's resolution that "The secretary of the treasury is d. reeled to inform the senate whether there is danger of a dtficieucy in the .-even ties of j the government during the curreut year," etc. The matter wis rtferred to the; secretary of the treasury, and his reply constitutes th report the committee siilr- I seven persons were killed and about as maiiy badly injured. The fart mail north bound crashed into the I'ont'ac district freight as the latter was rounding the fcY' from the Kankakee and Smthwest ern rsilway preparatory to coming to this city on the main line of the Cetitr.il. The location of the wieck is a desolate stretch of prairie by night, being quite low and very flat. There is nothing at the junc tion but the railway statiou, aud the night operator and a s itchman are all that are usually there, Facts cry Hard to irt. Owing to the location of the disaster and the alleged ignorance of the Illinois Cen tral officials as to the facts it is impossible to find out the names of the killed, if any. and only a few of the injured can be named at this writing. Following are those iiAtr.es: Mrs. H. K. Stay ton, Wichita Falls, Tex., side and hip hurt; Mix. C. F. lirown, Newton, Ids., hip and ankle disbcated; J. V. 15rown, baggageman, Chicago, foot mashed; J.

From the most authentic sources tiie following account oflhe wreck has lieen obtained: As the fast mail came rumbling into Otto tneie wa no sign of danger at the station. Lights a'xiut the statiou and at the side tracks si. cue out clear and true. It was a clear night, and away on ahead the rails glistened in the light of the in coming train. The main track ahead was clear. Just as the mail train approached the curve Kngineer Smith saw the black string of coal cars, heavily loaded and drawn by a ponderous freight engine, round the curve, speeding toward the main line, lioth trams were converging toward the same point. It was too late for either of the trains to be stopped. Conflicting storic of the Diater. There are discordant stories of the kind of efforts put forth by the engiteers. Some insist that Kngineer Smith, seeing his only salvation in getting by the union of tracks before t lie great freight could pile upon him, increased his speed to tho greatest power. The same ones insist that tiie freight engineer tried to stop, but could not. Tne trains hurried on toward each oilier. The engine of .he mail had mits.

The vice presi dent warned the galleries and a well dressed man got up and said that as he had been a frequent offender he would retire. MISUNDERSTOOD BUTLER. HaulleriiiD Ludicroukly Misinterpret the South Carolinian' Word. Butler then intimated that the galleries were packed in the interests of the senator from New York and said he would be very glad to invite that senator out to some street corner where they could have it out fur the benefit of the masses. This invitation was misunderstood by Matider son, who made a point of order upon it, but withdrew the point when Butler ex plained that Lis invitation was one to apeak, not to fight. Then Hill got into a colloquy again and said that the rules tied the hands of the senate, but that the senate could change the rules. "Howf" asked Butler. Hill By offering at the proper time and place aud occasion (to be determined by the majority) an amendment to the rules, and then proceeding, as may be regulated by the majority, to vote upon it. There is jio practical difficulty it aud he empha sized the "if" and repeated it the ma jority of the senate desires to change the rules." Here Butler asked Hoar whether he thought there was any power in the senate to change the rules and the veteran aenator gave a reply that was a complete programme for the Democrats if they of :il,47'J.r-1, and if the -nine condition had continued through the present fiscal year a deficiei cy would have been avert ed entirely, o" at the most it would have been very sm II, la conclusion the- secretary says: "So much depeuds upon the financial and com- 1'anic in a Washington school.
