I!y I't lcKnipli to Hie .suite Chronicle. Washington, I). C, April 19 (Senate.) A brief but rather signifi cant silver debate was occasioned by Mr. IMatt calling up a House bill amending the Arizona funding act and asking its immediate consideration. Its parage was urgently desired, as a con tract had been made for the sale of these bonds on the theory that the bill would pass the Senate in the same form in which it had passed the House. Mr. Kyle, (Farmers' Alliance), of South Dakota, moved to strike out ihe words which made the live per cent, interest payable in "gold coin"and to in sert in lieu thereof thie words "in lawful money of the United States." A roll call being demanded on this proposi tion, resulted in yeas to 23 nays. The full vote was as follows: Yeas, Allen, Hate, llerry, Blackburn, Cok rell, Coke, Colquitt, Daniel, Dubois, ratilkner, Gibson (Md.) Ilansbrough, Harris, Hill, (Nev.) Kyle, Mitchell, lYtler, l'ugh, Hansom. Stewart, Teller, Vest, Walthall, Wooleott 28. Nays, Allism, Carey, Chandler, Cullom, Dixon, Frye, Gray, Hale, Hawley, lliscock, Hoar, McMillan, Manderson, l'addock. Palmer, Perkins, Petti grew, Piatt, Proctor, Sawyer, Mockbridge, Washburn, Wilson 23. Mr. Hill voted yea. Mr. Carey, of Wyoming, after the vote was announc ed started a general silver debate by defining his position on th'j silver ques tion and on this bill, opposing free coinage. Mr. Teller said it was not nec essary to specify gold coin in order to lloat bonds on the market. He was willing that the bill should be amended so as to make the interest payable in "united States coin," but he should vote against the bill if it is specified simply "gold coin of theUnited States." After further debate, the Senate passed the bill as amended, making the inter est payable "in lawful money of the I'nittd State" and sent it to confer ence with the House. Mr. George's resolution for a special investigation by a committee of five into the cause of low price of cotton and the depressed condition of agriculture in the cotton States was amended so as to entrust the investigation to the standing com mittee on agriculture which was au thorized "to ascertain in every practi cable way, and report from time to time to the Senate, the present condition of agriculture in the United States, and the present prices of agricultural products; and if there be any of which the prices are depressed, then the causes of ?uch depression and the remedies therefor." The resolution was adopted without objection. The long standing resolution authorizing the secretary ot the treasury to refund to the State of West Virginia the di rect tax, which had been laid over out of courtesy to Mr. Morrill, was parsed. A bill was passed creating an appellate court for the District of Columbia and authorizing the appoint ment of two additional judges. At 1:45 p. m. the Senate resumed in se cret session the discussion of the mat ters laid before it yesterday; at 4:30, the doors were re-opened and the Sen ate adjourned until to-morrow. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. The first steps towards curtailing the extraneous matter published in the Congressional Record was made this morning by a resolution, submitted by the committee on rules, that all orders heretofore made, granting general leave to print remarks in the Record, shall be vacated and set aside. Mr. McMillin, of Tennessee, advocated the passage of the resolution. After farther discussion, the resolution was passed. Mr. U rerrall, of Virginia, called up ! the contested election cae of Noyes Rockwell, from the 23th Congressional district of New York. No agreement being reached as to limit of time for debate, Mr. O'Ferrall giving notice that he would call the present question after the expiration of ten hours. Mr. Lawson, of Georgia, opened the debate for the majority of the committee and supported the claims of Mr. Noyes, the Republican contestant; confined his re r 3 to w It. argument upon the cities and reviewed the testimony. The contestee, Rockwell, claimed that in a count of the b illots in the six dis tricts ot four wards of Elmira, he gained a number of votes and that cer tain illegal votes were cast for Noyes, and that ballots cast for him (Rock well) were rejected, and that the gains for him in the recount deducting tie illegal votes from Noyes and counting rejected ballots for him, would show a clear majority for Rockwell. This Wr. Lawson denied. Referring to the Uoyle ballots, he quoted from the majority report of the committee to the tiled that at the election in controversy a justice of the court of appeals of .New York was elected. For this oIhc neither the Democratic or Re publican party made a nomination, but the State committee of both parties placed the name of Robert Earle on their respective party tickets. Mr. Ik VOLUME XI. Lawson was followed by Mr. Johnson. Republican, of Indiana, who spoke for Mr. Noyes. He said Mr. Noyescame into the contest with clean hands. He did not seek the nomination, did not want it, and did not accept it until forty-eight hours after he was nomi nated. There was no safeguard thrown around the ballots. They were in the custody of no one upon whom any re sponsibility rested and there was no care taken of them with a view to a possi ble recount. They were left exposed so that they could have been tampered with, for in law they were as mere worthless paper. Referring to the Doyle ballots, Mr. Johnson said that fictitious votes were shown from other persons than Doyle. In concluding his speech, which occupied an hour, he said that the question was above and beyond party. Gentlemen could af ford to deal fairly and officially with the question. It wa right and just that these litigants should have their claims determined according to law, justice and the principles of equity. Mr. Bacon (Democrat) of New York, opened the debate for the sitting mem ber, Mr. Rockwell, and said that the Doyle ballots were put in simply as a matter of identification. Pending further discussion, the House ad journed until to-morrow. RAILROAR WINS ATfOXfOKD. T;ic Concord Southern Hallway Voted a Subscription at $15,000. Special to the State Chronicle.

How He Indecently Assaulted Miss Marlon Price. The Young Lady's Story. By Cable to the State Chronicle. London, April 19 A tremendous sensation has been caused by the accu sation against the Hon. Patrick Emi lius John Greville Nugent, brother of Baron Greville and Deputy Lieuten ant and high sheriff of the county of Westmeath, Ireland, of having inde cently assaulted a lady in a first-class carriage on the Brighton railway. The lady in the case is Miss Marion Price. The evidence in the Westminster po lice court to-day was of a very strong character against the defendant, who,lf the story told not only by Miss Price herself, but by the guard, is true, deliberately pursued the woman and changed carriages for the purpose of gratifying his villianous passion.The guard declared that Nugent ehanged carriages at Hapwards, Heath, and entered the compartment in which Miss Price was sitting alone. The guard knew of no cause why the accused should have changed his compartment unless it was on account of Miss Price. The story told by Miss Price of what had occurred after the Hon. Patrick entered her compartment is cor roborated. She says: He attempted to put his arms around me and kissed me. I told him to let me alone. He tried again to embrace me, and I screamed as loud as I could for help, at the same time try ing to get awav from him. He held on to me and took hold of the lower part of my dress. I struggled as hard as I could, while he tried by brutal force to keep me down. I succeeded in reaching the communication cord and pulled it. As I reached the cord the preacher made a more determined effort to pull me back. In the strug gle the front and back of my dress was torn. When the train came to a stand still I changed into another compart ment. The story of Miss Price was corroborated by the condition of her dress, worn on the occasion, which showed rents both in the front and back. Nugent was put under arrest upon the arrival of the train. When charged at the police station and confronted by the girl, the prisoner re fused to give hi 3 name and the police had some trouble in ascertaining who he was. The hearing of the case oc cupied about two hours. The counsel or Nugent suggested that it was a case ot blackmail. Ihe magistrate: "There is no evidence, whatever to show that it is." Bail was reauired x rom the defendant in the sum of four hundred pounds for further appearance and was promptly furnished. European Anarchists at Work. By Cable to the State Chronicle.

Appeal -A valan ch e. In spite of the fact that the McKin ley bill has started this wonderful in dustry, the importation of tin and terne plate into the United States du ring the first year of the operation of the bill was greater than for any pre ceding year except 1890 and 1889 The highest importation was 662,621, 100 pounds in 1889, while for 1891 it was 655,736,800 pounds, showing that the McKinley bill has had hardly any effect whatever in keeping the foreign tin-plate out of the country. Of course everybody in the United States would like to see the tin-plate industry thrive in this country, but not at the expense of the people. The price of tin-plate has gone up everywhere in this country. In New York the in crease of price per box has been 60 cents, and it has been calculated that this amounts to a total in the country of very nearly $4,000,000. This $4, 000,000 represents the sum which the American people are required to pay annually in order that 20 or 30 firms may dip plates. made in Wales. This is another one of the robberies perpe trated by the Republican party in the guise of fostering home industries. APRIL 20, 1802. OX THE DIAMOND. m:w oi:kn, iim a; colts and RONTONS BEATEN.

A gentleman who has returned from Texas tells the Charlotte News that while in that State he desired to stop at a place called Salisbury. The con ductor told him Salisbury had been bought up by a rival company and rolled across the prairie to Memphis, seven miles distant. He found this to be so. Every house in Salisbury, 150 in number, had been moved to Mem phis, and the house rollers were then engaged in rolling off the Salis bury hotel. It had been cut into three sections. One section had already been landed in Memphis, the second section was on the road, half way across the prairie, and the third section was still on its old base the last landmark of the town of Salisbury. Or. Ncc.l ham's RiMe Readings. The Bible readings of Dr. Geo. C. Needham yesterday were deeply inter esting and instructive.

The "circles" are all requested and urged to be present at tbe next meeting, which will be held ii i 11 a. m. to-morrow. Mrs. Cotten, one of the lady managers, expects to be present, and it is hoped all money collected will be handed in by that time. There ought to be a very large attendance of the ladies of the city, as a very important question will then j como up for consideration and decision. - - NU.MRER 37. A HORRIBLE RIME.
