Silver purchases by the government have ceased. The pur pose (or which Cleveland called congress iu extraordinary session has been ac complished and he has affixed his signature to the bill to repeal uncondition ally the purchasing clause of the Sherman law. The struggle in the house was short. Only twenty-seven men could be rallied (or the last stand by the silver leaders. 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 eenato amendment by duress. But even in this they failed. Their small following might have succeeded had they been led by experienced and skillful parliamentary tacticians. Caac-bt the FIMVasters Napplag. 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 scu.uc amendments. The vote stood 1S-3 for concurrence and 94 against. When the originnl bill passed the bouse on Ang. 28 the vote stood 2U1 to 100, S3 that although the total vote this time was smaller the proportion was practically the same. Boohing tbe BUI ta Cleveland, 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 that its amendment bad been agreed ta by 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 footed messenger carried it to the senate. where it was signed two minutes later by Vice President Stevenson. Chairman Pearson, with the bill under bis arm, en tered a carriage waiting lor him on tbe plaza in front of tbe Capitol, and drove rapidly to the While House. The presi dent bad been kept duly advised of the progress of events. Indeed be manifested n i i t w U ininMiu in tlx mtt !n i ti. Iiima that at bis request a duulicateof the names of those who bad voted for and against the concurrence was made soon after the roll call was completed, and this list was lying on his desk when Mr. Pearson arrived with the bilk Who Cot that Quill Ten? Secretory Carlisle, Attorney General Ol- ney and Private Secretary Thurber were present. After felicitating with each other for a few moments over the victory that had been achieved the president took up the engrossed copy of the bill aud read it aloud. Then picking up a qnill pen he af fixed his autograph at 4:i. And thus eighty-live days four hours and twenty-five minutes after the extraordinary session convened tbe remedy for the financial dis tress which Cleveland demanded ia his lessage was applied.

'The analysis of the vote shews that 124 Democrat, 68 Republicans 'and J Populist (tnnnon oi caiiiornta) voted for concur rence, and 70 Democrats, 15 Republicans and Populists against tbe motion. The following members voted for the Bland free coinage substitute and also for con currence: Alderson, Black of Georgia. Brookshire, Donovan, Kdmunds of Vir ginia, Geary, Holman, Richardson of Michigan, Swanson, Marshall. Turpin. Post and Tyler, while Neall, Weaver and Kyle, who voted (or the free coinage sub stitute, did not vote on tbe final vote. FILIBUSTERS WERE TOO WEAK. Which Is Why tha Kaa Casaeaa Blaaa Hapes tmw tha Fatara. There was one very potent reason why ilibusterinK failed, and that was that tha filibusters did not have enough votes to 4esoand roll call. Bad they ha there woajd probably have spirit ia tha fight and aome maa who kaaw tbe rules would have guarded against tha "fluke" which Criap sa qakckly look Bland said he only wanted that tbe'op- ponenta of the measure should not be stifled. "It's only intended to partially stifle the house," remarked Alien of Mis- tppl. Livingston of Georgia was la fa vor of fixing a time to vote, aad having a Hula regular debate oa the bill. He chided Bland tor hia stubbornness. Bry an asked Wilson if bis purpose was to prevent a vote on amendments and W il- sca said it was. Bryan wanted that to go oa record; he wanted the country to know it, which suited Wilson also, (or he aald the house had already voted oa every amendment offered. Then Bland finally said in reply to Wilson: "I will accept nothing that does not come ia the regu lar way." 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 mentary inquiry, asked whether the com mittee on rules had not a ready-made rule that would operate in this case. Hender son of Iowa supplemented tbe inquiry with a motion tbst the house take a recess for thirty minutes to give tha five "oars' constituting the committee on rules tune to bring ia a rule. The honsa laughed. The closing speeches ia which mere was anvthinc interesting were made by Bland aad Reed. Bland had an amendment read be wished to offer. It revived the free coinage act o( 1837. He said that was tbe amendment upon which the Democratic party of tbe west and south would do battle hereafter. There was a small and unterrified force in both house and senate oa the Democratic side which gave him hope (or the future. That minority battled for the principles of the Democratic platform and was a nucleus for all sections west of tbe Alleghanies to rally round. Ke believed also that tha larcer portion of the eastern Democracy would also come in, and thus would ine Democracy march to triumph on the basis of free silver at 10 to 1.

The Maiae Maa tiaa Utile Confidence ia tbe Besalt. 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. which had to be tried ia obedience to the wishes of the people. Congress has at last after a long time done its duty, bat it has robbed the measure of a very great deal of the advantage that It would have had. 'For my part I shall not be surprised to see great industrial misfortunes happen to this country. In my Judgment it win De found that underneath this situation is the general difficulty that this country does not know, nor ever will know until the action takes place, what are the pur posess and intentions of the persons in power. Ihe persons themselves do not kuow, and ia consequence the country is prostrated under uncertainty. Moreover the whole industrial system of the country is subject to change. That change is im minent and threatening. It. will bt found that this underlies our present condition; that it is the main cause forthe uneasiness vrbich has happened and which will hap pen to us in the coming winter." Tracey of New VVrk said: " Oar friends on the side opposed to tuts Din nave claimed-that we have been following the direction given us by one of tbe senators from Ohio Sherman. I will not take is sue with them as to what that gentle man a opinion may be; out, Mr. speaker. as far as land those on the Demucraticside who have acted with me are concerned we know that we have been following tha lead of a man whom tbe people of this country elected by the large 4 majority ever received by a president Grover Cleveland." I Appaulse.1 In the midst of the applause tha sharp. shrill voice of Wilson of Washington yelled, "Cuckoo, cuckoo," and tbe bouse amid a perfect pandemonium of mingled laughter and applause was brought to its senses by the strong voice of tbe speaker. 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 stuck their heads ont of their boxes. Wilson was brief in closinir. The tioa on Bland's amendment was put and resulted yeas, 100; nays, 175. Bryan stated that the silver men had desired that all tbe powers of tbe house to force a vote as exercised so that they (the silver men) could not be charged with acquiescence. but the American people would never agree to the majority's action. The final vote on tbe bill was then taken and re sultedyeas, 193; nays, 94. rraceealags ia Vaagress la Brief. Washington, Nov. 2. The senate passed a few bills of no general interest.
