Bland and Bryan. Bland and hia
colleagues, knowing that further opposi
tion was futile, preferred to sacrifice tha
opportunity for a few hours debate offered
by W ilson in order to force the majority
to bring in the cloture and concur in the

in this they failed. Their small following
might have succeeded had they been led

Neither Bryan nor Snodgrasa, his lieu
tenant, is well versed in parliamentary
proceedings, and rrhen thrown off their
guard by a momentary distraction they
exposed their flank by failing to follow
one filibustering motion with another.
Speaker Crisp then overwhelmed them by
putting the pending motion to order the
previous question. It was carried with a
roar. The filibustered had been caught
napping, and nothing remained for them
to do but to submit. For thirty minutes
under the rule followed the rattle of ora
tory amid the greatest confusion and ex
citement. At its conclusion the vote was
taken on Bland's free coiuage substitute.
Tbe majority against it was CO. Theu
came the final vote oa concurring in the

for concurrence and 94 against. When the

The final vote was taken at 2:50 p. m.
The bill was engrossed immediately, and
twenty minutes later, at 3:10, the formal
announcement was made to the senate

the house. The bill was hurriedly enrolled
by Chairman Pearson, of the committee
on enrolled bills, and at 3:30 was presented
to Speaker Crisp for his signature. A fleet

Then came the weak filibustering cut
off in its infancy by Crisp's raid on tbe
flank of the filibusters. During this period
Wells of Wisconsin, rising to a parlia

a motion tbst the house take a recess for

Reed said among other things: "I told
the gentleman from Nebraska some time
ago that he would find out tbe difference
between promise and performance when
he came -to actual business. That tha
country is undoubtedly better off when the
Democratic party disappoints it I do not
doubt. In some respects I might hope
that this disappointment will continue.
With the result I have not tha confidence
which some gentlemen have who either
know more than I do or less than I do.
This is a very serious and important
perinient in tbe history of tbe country.

prostrated under uncertainty. Moreover
the whole industrial system of the country
is subject to change. That change is im

In the midst of the applause tha sharp.

amid a perfect pandemonium of mingled
laughter and applause was brought to its

Wilson's ejaculation was an echo of Mor
gan's remarks ia tbe senate the other day
that when tha clock of tha Whits House
struck the "cuckoos" ia the chamber

Wilson was brief in closinir. The
