A SILVER VICTORY. Action of the House on the Sen ate Measure. Speaker Reed's Disposition of the Bill Not Concurred In. Its Reference to toe Committee on Coinage, Weights and Measures S'.riekea From tbe Journal. Special Dispatches to The Honiara Cai.i. ■Washington', June 19.— After the House was called to order this morning Mill* ob jected to the approval of tlie journal ou tlie grouud that it had not been read iv full by the Clerk. The Speaker ordered a lull reading. The Clerk, proceeding, read that portion of the journal which disclosed tlie reference of the Nlver Bill to the Committee on Coinage, Weights and Measures. McKlnley moved that the journal be ap proved, and demanded the previous ques tion, desiiite Mills' protest that he was en titled to recognition to move to correct the journal. Springer raised the roint of order that the journal contained a record of something which never happened. The Speaker replied that that was for the House to decide, and directed the Clerk to call the roll. The Clerk proceeded, while Springer, amid the applause of his party colleagues, entered a rigorous protest, addressing tlie Soenker, saying: "You can ignore the rights of the representatives of tue people, but the people will pull you down, sir, at the polls next November, and your part; with you!" The House refused to order the previous question by a vote of 10- to 117, amid loud Democratic applause. The I llowing Re publicans voted with the Democrats in the negative: Bartine, De Haven, Kelly, Kerr of lowa, Lind, Morrow and Townseud of Colorado. Mills offered a resolution reciting that the order of reference made by the Speaker referring the r-ilver Bill to the Committee on Coinage, Weights aud Measures was in correct under the rules of the House and made without authority under tlie rules, and resolving that the journal be corrected by striking therefrom the entry. Cannon argued the Senate amendments would require to be considered in com mittee of the whole. That being so it was the Speaker's duty to refer it to the Com mittee ou Coinage, Weights and Measures. The resolution sought to strike out the reci tal of the fact. Mills characterized Cannon's position as the boldest, most reckless and absurd po sition he ever beard maintained in a legis lative body. Under the Constitution tne journal was to be kept by the House, not by the Speaker or his clerks. The Repub lican party he charged with being false to its pledge* on the matter of silver. The Democratic party would give the people free, unlimited coinage of silver. At the hustings tlie people would ask the Republi cans why, when they were here as mends of silver, they voted to the death to prevent tlie consummation of tne people's wishes and the fulfillment of their Droin- ises? Peter;:, though declaring himself a free coinage man, sustained the Speaker's ac tion, contending that under the rules it was the Speaker's duty to refer the bill as he bad done. Biggs interrupted Peters and demanded to know why the gentleman from Kansas (lid ii(. vote for silver coinage if he was in favor of it. This was received with great merriment by the whole House, as Peters was the Republican who refused to bolt the caucus on the Sliver Bill. Bii»|is continued his cross-questioning of Peters, much to the latter's tmbariassnient, while the whole Hnuss was convulsed with laughter. Reed pounded with his gavel, crew red in the face, and declared the gentleman from California was out of order. Biggs* no* ever, continued to pour out a perfe> tstrtiui: of words, and would not be silenced. \J Reed cried out angrily, "Will the gentle man ironi California be in order?" "I will, sir," re-ponded Bigg?, dropping into his teat. But no sooner was lie seated than he again rose, and advancing toward Speaker Need, leaned over and whimpered in the Sneaker's ear. The irrepressible man was bound to have his say. Reed laughed heartily, and the contagion took until the whole House rang with laughter, which grew all the more boister ous when the old Californian drew his handkerchief from his pocket and stood up in plain view and waved it over his head. Crisp submitted an argument to show that under the rules the Speaker had not the power to refer the bill as he had don*. ringer contended for the right of the House to revise the journal and make it show what the majority of the House de cided it should show. The purpose of re terrlns the bill to the Committee on Coin age, Weightsland Measures, was to prevent the House from voting on the question of concurrence in the Senate amendments. The rules, which, he claimed, were in tended to allow the majority to do business and produce results, were even now pros tituted to the base purpose of gagging the majority. Blaod held that no other course was open but to strike the erroneous reference of the bill from the journal. This would place the bill on the Speaker's table again and allow the House to get at it. Butterworth said the time hnd not come when tin; Kepubliean party is willing to abdicate its control over the business of the House. The question would be put next fall, not in time to affect this question. McMiilin of Tennesse— But will it be In time for this question to affect it? [Dem ocratic applause.] Continuing, buttTworth held the real question before the House was whether or not the Speaker referred the bill to the committee— wA that it was or was not prop er//referred. The question arose whether the Speaker was authorized to make the reference. He contended that he was so authorized. Kule 21 gives the Speaker au tnority to refer public bills to appropriate committees. Springer argued that the Silver Bill was not properly under the rules before the Hou^e yesterday, I ecause the business on the Speaker's table hud not been reached. . Buiterworth said the pending proposition ■ought to unhorsu the Republican majority ami to put the Democratic minority in the saddle. The Republicans should not abdi cate in favor of the Democrats until at least they should determine they were unable to conduct the business of the majority. I Re publican applause.] He was in favor of the early consideration of the Silver Bill. Anderson of Kansas, while declaring himself an earnest advocate of free coin age, maintained the correctness of the Speaker's ruling. He wanted to ask the Chairman of the Committee on Coinage, Weights and Measures whether the com mittee would give the House a chance to rote upon the measure? Conger, the Chairman of that committee, replied that as far as he was personally concerned he would make every effort to v secure legislation on this subject. Crisp said that the Committee on Rules might interfere, as it did to prevent a vote on the free coinage of silver. Mills said that the point he made was under the existing rules. The Silver Bill remained upon the Speaker's table, to be disposed of as the House, and not tLo Speaker, should determine. Brecktnridize of Kentucky argued that the Speaker went beyond the scope of his authority in the reference of the bill, His action was not erroneous, but illegal and void. The Speaker in rendering his decision said be desired the members of the House to di vest themselves of the idea that any unu sual procedure bad taken place in connec tion with this bill. The reference of bills of till.) kind and in this way had been of daily occurrence since the adoption of the present rules. - The Chair desired also that the House should know that this particular transaction did not take place in a corner. In the regular The Morning Call. course of business the Journal Clerk had informed the Speaker that among the list of bills to be referred under the rules to their appropriate committees was the Silver bill, with the Senate amend ments. The Speaker had been asked whether he had any particular direction to make in regard to it. Knowing the bill to be one of grave public Importance, and anxious that he should have all possible light on the subject, the Chair had con sulted the Democratic members of the Comm ittee on Rules (lilount and Alcilillin), and the gentlemen from Missouri and Illinois (Bland ana Springer), not for the purpose of throwing any responsibility upon them, but in order that tie might benefit by any light they might be able to give. Alter conversing with those gentlemen it had seemed clear to the Chair that the rules of the House covered the question, and that bis duty was to treat the bill as he would treat any other. Accordingly tho clerk was not directed to make any change in regard to its reference. The House must bear in uiiud this was not a question of politics or currency. It was a question of parliament ary law, and on his decision the House de pended on the carrying out of the system of rules the House had adopted. If not satisfied with the reference directed by the Speaker under the present system of rules, the House could change the rules. Did this bill con tain provisions which under the rules ought to be. considered in Committee of the Whole? There was a provision in the origi nal House bill by which a certain amount ot bullion was to be purchased and certifi cates issued thereon. The Senate amend ment whs an amendment for free coinage, and for this an appropriation was made. If anytmng was clear in parliamentary law, it was that this bill was one of those which would be properly considered in Committee of the hole, and this being so, it was the obvious duty of the Chair to refer it in the same manner in which hundreds and thou sands of bills had been referred during the present session. The point of order raised by the gentleman from Illinois (Cannon) put the Chair in an embarrassing position, because the proposed action of the House was a declaration that an error had been mnde in parliamentary law. It was pro posed to erase from the journal a question of fact. While the Chair might have some d.'iibt about the point of order, he felt it was a question which the House ought to determine. He would, therefore, overrule the point of older ana submit the question to the House. Cannon moved to table Hills' resolution. On a standing vote this was carried— lL'o to no. Morrow of California, Bartine of Nevada and Townseud of Colorado voted with the Democrats. They were overlooked by the Speaker in the first count, but Morrow called attention to tho omission and it was rectified. On a vote by tellers the motion to table was lost— ayes us, noes 123. The question then recurred on Mills' reso tiou and it was agreed to— ayes 121, noes 117. At the conclusion of the roll-call the vote stood ayes Hi), noes 117. A change of one vote would be necessary to defeat the resolution by a tie vote, and that change was maae by l'uuston of Kan sas amid the derisive cheers of the Demo crats. This left the vote ayes lli<, noes 118, but the change proved unavailing, for Ab bott of Texas and Bullock of Florida, whose names were not recorded, stated that they had voted in the affirmative, and the Speaker accepting their statements, the vote stood ayes 120, noes 118. Then Mctinley arose and changed his vote to the affirmative and the vole was announced— ayes 121, nays 117. McKinley was men recoguized to move its reconsideration and also to move an ad journment, Mills managing to sandwich in a motion to lay the motion to reconsider on tile table. On a motion to lay Mills' resolution on the table th-; following Republicans voted With the Democrats in the negative: Bur tine, Carter, De Haven, Ewart, Kelley, Morrow and Towusend of Colorado. On the resolution itself Kwart aid not vote, but the others named voted in the af firmative. McKlnley nlso voted in the affirmative, but only for the purpose of moving a recon sideration. The motion to adjourn was lost— ayes IIP, Days 120. Tlie vote recurring on Mills' motion to taule the motion to reconsider it w ;i» agreed to— ayea l_'l, nay- 114. Mills then moved to approve the journal as Euueuded, asking to withdraw tbe pre amble which recites that the order of ref erence made by the Speaker, referring tuu Silver liill to the Committee on Coinage, Weights uud Measured, was lucorreet under tbe rules ot the linuse and dune without authority under rules. McKJnley objected and tlie qnestion re currcu on the adoption of the. preamble. It was lust— ayea 109, noes 121. [Keiuiblican applause.] bprinyer moved the approval of the jour nal as amended, pending which, on motion of -MrKiuiey, the House, at 7 o'clock, ad journed. THE SILVKIt BILL. It Is in F.es ssica o" Vie Clerk of the Coin- i ge C mm ttee. Washington, June 19.— "What do the young nieu on Newspaper Bow think of the prospects of silver?" asked Senator Stew art to-night of a CalUornia Associated Press reporter. "They think that the House is in the mood to pass the Senate Free Coinage Bill, but the House Republicans will dislike to oppose the Administration. They will 'back and fill' on the matter for a week or two and then agree on a bill for the coinage of 4,500,000 ounces of silver a mouth and make Treasury certificates legal tender, re deemable m coin. The bullion redemption feature will not be incorporated. This bill will be agreed to by the Senate anil signed by the President." "The young men of the row are shrewd guessers," said Stewart. "I believe they have made a good guess on this matter. Such a bill would be a good measure for our Western country." Morrow, who led the Republican revolt to-day, agreed with Stewart, lie thinks that if the Free Coinage Kill is not passed it will be a bill for the coinage of four and a hail million ounces per mouth. The Silver Mill is now in possession of tlio clerk of the Committee on Coinage, Weight* and Measures anil he has DO authority to surrender its custody except on the order of the House or the Speaker. No such order has been made by the House, the resolu tion merely expunging the statement of the transaction from the journal, and the Speaker is Dot likely to recall it. There is no record in the journal that any reference of the matter has oeeu made, and therefore it is doubtful whether a motion to discharge the committee from its consideration would be in order, or whether the Committee on Kules can report a resolution fixing the day for its consideration. The journal of Wednesday, however, not huviup been yet approved, some method may be devised to cut the Koidiiin knot which binds the Silver Hill and also relieve the House from a di lemma.

GOLD AND SILVER. Continued Demands on New York fcr the Former— Free Coinage. New York, June 19.— The stock market continues to bo affected by further talk about gold shipment*. It is stated that still another quarter of a million is ordered for Saturday's steamer, which amount may be increased to half a million. Exchange on London at Berlin yesterday fell below the gold-importing point. A banking firm hers which is engaged in the shipping movement says that there is a small profit in selling sijj.t exchange on London, sending gold to Berlin aud covering at that center with bills on London. The Imperial Bank of Ger-. many makes the necessary advances in or der to increase its hoard of precious metal. Wall street is much disturbed by the ship ments, which have recently reached over £2,500,000. A leading banker said this after noon that he was creditably informed that the German Government is hoarding gold. The Hank of France now holds J26Q,0C0,000 gold, while the Bank of Germany has only $145,000,000. During the past year the Bank of France increased its gold holdings by 850,000,000, while the Bank of Germany lost SIO,OCO,OCO. This was discussed by the Ger man Cabinet ami withdrawals from London and New York resulted. It is estimated that £10,000,000 will be taken by Heidel bach, Ickelheimcr & Co. on present orders from this city. English bankers, it is said, report sterling; exchange on Paris just at the gold-shipping point, and any further advance of rates would bring out large ex port orders. Gold bars in the assay office, which two years ago amounted to $90,000, --000, have decreased to 832,500,000. If they should be nil absorbed a drain on double eagles in tho Sub-Treasury will follow, and the bunks will lose part of their specie holdings. The Financial Gazette says editorially: The fact that our coinage is 3 per cent heavier In silver than that of the Latin Union is a sufficient guarantee that com cannot be thrown upon the United States. The demands of business of this country re quire a steadily augmenting volume if cir culating medium. The increase calls for from 850,000.000 to SOO.OOO.ooOeacb year. If we till this void with silver we shall in.no way endanger the stability of the currency. The Journal of Commerce, in an editorial on the Silver Bill, says: Gold will be at a premium. Silver and the certificate* repre sented by it will take the place of paper currency occupied during the war. If this is to come at a!!, it may as well come at ouce, as the country will never be better prepared for the experiment. A local paper says: The recent ship ment of $2,254,000 in gold to Germany, $750,000 ol which went on the steamship Columbia this morning, has been followed by the circulation in banking circles of several disquieting rumors, one reaching Government officials to the effect that the shipments are on direct orders from th» German- Chancellor. One of the leauiti.; bankers here said: "The recent advance in exchange in Berlin nud the low rate of sterling exchange in Germany arose from the policy of extending the German export business and at the same time placing such restrictions on imports as to practi cally prohibit them. The reason for this policy is the German Government is hoard ing geld, and no matter what excuse the banker acting as its agents may make, it is well understood where the order comes from and where the gold goes to." 1 The opiuiou on Wall street is freely ex pressed that the law allowing the with drawal of gold bars for export should be amended, and Treasury officials should insist on paying till checks in coin. This would limit the shipment of sold to a small figure, lor it would take wide differences in exchange for shippers to realize a profit in shipping coin. Gold bars are of a known fineness and charged for accordingly. On the other hand gold coin often falls 1 per cent below the standard of fineness, and in addition - there is always a loss by abrasion.' Tho Tribune thus concludes an editorial on the coinage craze: " The House has as sented to the purchase of bullion enough to take all the silver from the American mines lor the monetary use of the United States. A »tcp beyond that is dangerous. There is no excuse whatever for making perfectly sound paper a legal ten der for the payment of all debts; no honesty whatever in giving that power to any paper in an absolute public necessity. Un that solid footing of honesty and jus tice the House and President can appeal without fear to tho sober judgment of Americans." Following is an extract from a Herald editorial: It is, of course, impossible for this bill to become a law. At least it should be in a country in which common sense prevails everywhere. Legisla tion by trickery and legislation for a single class, as against the interests of all other classes, may win a victory now and then, but in the end it will beat a masterly retreat. The silver men hunted bear and had a good time, by and by the bear will hunt them and then they will be " wrapped in dismal thinking." Chicago, June 19.— A Washington spe cial to the Herald say*: While nine-tenths of the members of the House of Represen tative* are expecting a fight over the ques tion of reference to the Silver Bill, the bill is reposing calmly in the custody of the Committee on Coinage, Weights and Measures, and no one knows when It will bo reported. As the committee is said to be unfavorable to the measure, It may be presumed that the bill will not be reported in a hurry. The Speaker, under one of tho new rules, quieily referred the bill without laying it before the House. Sir. Iteed is opposed to the bill, but he made a careful canvass of the House yesterday and declared free coinage would carry. -Washington, June 10.— Secretary Win dotn to-day applied to the Attorney-General for an opinion as to whether he has author ity to place a premium on gold bars with drawn from the New York Assay Office for export Buenos Ayiiks, June —Gold 134.

The Striking of a Pick Upon tlie Wall or tbe Cave Heard by tbe Rescu ing Parly, Special Dispatches to The Morkino Cali, Duxbar, June 19.— The town is wild with excitement to-night. About 6 o'clock the rescuing party heard, coming through the cave of coal nnd slate on which they were working, a faint Bound, oft repeated, which was unmistakably that of a miner's pick. The news spread like wildfire to the surface and thence through the village. In a short time a thousand men, women and children were crowded about the entrance to the mine. Meanwhile the rescuers set to work with renewed vigor. Only two men at a time can work in the passage where they are, and these are being con stantly relieved, Tlie miners express vary ing opinions as to the length of time it will take them to reacli the imprisoned men, some saying ten hours and others twenty four hours. The rescuers fear no danger anil are not likely to meet with any trouble. There, is the wildest speculation as to how many of the UDfortunatn men are olive. Minors express a fear that most of ! them were killed by the explosion. Late to-uight General Manager Hazzard said they have hopes of reaching the men before daylight. A corps of physicians are waiting in readiness and every provision has been made to take care of such of ihc unfortunates as may be alive. Tlie sus pense among tho anxious watchers above is a* 1 ful.

How a Charge of Shot TrftTels. When standing within a few yards of the gun's muzzle at the time of discharge, a person would be amazingly astonished were he only alile to see the shot as they go whizzing IV. Experiments in instantaneous pbotogrophy have proved to us that the shot not only spread out, comet-like, as they fly, but they string out one behind tl>e other to a much greater distance than they sproad. Thus, with a cylinder gun, when the lirst shot of a charge reaches a target that is forty yards away, the last shot is lagging along ton yards behind. Even with the choke-bore gun some of the shot will lag behind eight yards in forty. This accounts for the wide swath that is mown in a flock of ducks on which the charge of shot falls just right. About 5 per cent only of tbe charge of shot nnive simultaneously at tbe target, but the balance of the iir»t half of the charge is so close behind that a bird's muscles are not quick enough to get out of the way, although t'tose who have, wntched sitting birds when shot at have often seen them start as if to tly when the leading shot whistled by them, only to drop dead as they weie overtaken by the leaden bail. — Fiaak Leslie's I. lnitiated. RECIPROCITY. A Pan - American Resolution Referred to Congress. Plan to Form a Customs Union With Neighboring Republics. The President Expresses Himself on the Sub ject — Blame's Reply to the Millers. Special Dispatches to The Morniso Cali. Washington, June 19.— The President transmitted to Congress to-day a letter from Secretary Blaino upon the subject of the Customs Uaiun anil recommendations in respect thereof by the Pan-American Con ference. Blame suggests an amendment to the Tariff Bill authorizing the President to declare the ports of the United States Iree to the products of any American nation upon which no export duties aro charged as long as such nation shall admit freu to its ports the manufactures and products of the United States. The President, in transmitting the com munication, says: "It has been so often and persistently stated that our tariff laws offered an insurmountable barrier to a largo exchange of products with the Latiu- American nations that I deem it proper to call especial attention to the fact that more than 87 per cent of tho products of those nations that are sent to our ports are now admitted free. If sugar is placed upon the free list practically every import article ex ported from those States will be given un taxed access to our markets except wool. The real difficulty in the way of negotiat ing profitable reciprocity treaties is that we have eiven freely so much that would have had value in the mutual concessions which such treaties imply. I cannot doubt, however, that the present advantage which the prod ucts of these near and friendly States enjoy in our markets, though they are not by law exclusive, will, witti other considerations, favorably dispose them to adopt such meas ures, by treaty or otherwise, as will tend to equali/.e and greatly enlarge our mutual ex 'chnnges. It will certainly be time enough for us to cousider whether we must cheapen the cost of production by cheapening labor in order to give access to South American markets, when we have fair ly tried the effect of established and reliable steam communication and convenient methods of money exchange. There can be no doubt, I think, that with these facilities well established, and with a rebate of the duties upon imported raw materials used in the manufacture of goods lor exiort, our merchants will be ible to compete in the ports of ttie Latin- American nations with those of any other country. If, after Congress shall have acted upon tho pending tariff legislation, it shall appear that under the general treaty-making powers, or under any special powers given by law, our trade with the States repre sented in the conference can be enlarged upon a basis of material advantage, it will be promptly done." Secretary Biaine to-day received a tele gram from the Chairman of the National Millers' Convention at Minneapolis saying that the millers are greatly agitated over the report of an additional duty of SO cents per barrel to be imposed on American flour in i u!i i. thus prohibiting an American flour trade, and asking for iuformation. Secre tary Blame replied that he had no official advice o* the subject, but if it was correct the advance would make the duty SO 31 per barrel, which is evidently intended by Spain to be prohibitory. He added: " It lias been constantly said here for the last six months that Western farmers de mand the unconditional repeal of tl.e sugar duty. It is within the power of the West ern farmers, by encouraging a system of reciprocity, to secure, in exchange for the repeal of this duty, the free admission of their breadstuff* and provisions into tho markets of forty millions of people, includ ing Cuba. In my opinion tliis is the most prtliuble policy lor Western farmers." THE SENATE. Hale's Amendment to tha Tariff Bill Beeard- ing Reciprocal Treatiei. Washington, Jane is. — Tiie following Semite bills were reported and placed on ttie calendar: To adopt regulations for preventing collisions at sea; to authorize corporations to become surety in certain cases in courts of the United States. The Senate resumed consideration of the Legislative, Executive and Judicial Appro priation Bill. Ail the committee amendments having been disposed of the bill was opened to general amendment. Paddock moved to increase the salary of the Commissioner of the General Land Of lice from (4000 to $3000 and of the Assistant Commissioners from S3OW to S3OOO. With out action, the bill was laid aside. The message of the President in relation to reciprocal commercial treaties with the Latin-American nations was laid on the table. In connection with it Hale presented an amendment to be offered to the Tariff 13111 as follows: "And the President of the United States is hereby authorized without further legislation to declare the ports of the United States free and open to all the products of any nation of the American Hemisphere, upon which no export duties are to be imposed, whenever and so long as such nation shall admit to its ports, free of all national, provincial, iiuiiiicip.il and other taxes, flour, cornmeal and other breadstuff's, preserved meat?, fish, vege tables and fruits, cotton-seed oil, rice and other provisions, including all articles of food, lumber, . furniture and all other articles of wood, agricultural implements and machinery, mining and mechanical machinery, structural steel and iron, steel rails, locomotives, railway cars and sup plies, street cars, refined petroleum or such cither products of the United States as may be agreed vi on." Alter eulogies on the deceased New York Representatives— Nutting and Wilber— the Senate adjourned. ::■•-.- CENSUS COMPLAINTS. Charges of Incomplete Enumeration and Reflected District*. New Yoiek, June 19.— Dispatches from Albany, Buffalo, Rochester and other points tell of dissatisfaction with the work of the; Government census-takers. Com plaints are coining fruin all placed that the census, so far, is decidedly incomplete, many districts not having been enumerated, etc At Albany it is proposed to order au enumeration by the city at once for com parison with the Government work. St. Louis, June 19.— From figures fur nished by the Census Supervisor, by per mission of Superintendent Porter, it is estimated that the Government census will place the St. Louis population at 430,000. Complaints of careless work and districts not visited are pouring in to the newspapers, and it is probable that au effort will be made to have a local count unless the Gov ernment work is carried on to a fuller ox teat. CROP KEPOKI. Condition of Fruits . and. Cereals in Cali fornia. WAsniSQTOJf, June 19.— The Agricultural Department crop report Issued to-day con tains the following about California from* the State agent there: "Owing to the ex cessively wet weather during the fall and through the winter until lute in the spring, it was impossible to sow as large an acre age of grain of any kind as usual, except la districts having sandy soil. Another cause of the reduction of acreage Is a change In the area of crops. : Much land formerly do voted to grain is now planted to -orchards and vineyards. The condition of grain, also, has been injured by an excess of moist ure. It being difficult to work the ground, a large ' part of the early sown grain i was drowned. Much of the deficiency will uu PRICE FIVE CENTS. doubtedly be made up by corn and root crops, of which an unusual amount was planted in the latter part of April and May, and which looks uncommonly well. The condition of apples is below the average, and in many sections the trees are almost stripped of leaves by caterpillars. The wet winter has killed a great many trees. Wherever the water lay on the roots of fruit trees— which includes peaches, apricots and some almonds and plums— the sap seems to have stagnated and soured, and in many cases the trees died when the leaves had started and the fruit was half an inch ia diameter. This occurred on hard subsoils mostly. The fruit crop will not be much more than 50 per cent of the full average crop." FEDERAL ELECTION BIL.li. Majority Report of ths Committee Having tb.* Matter in Charge. ■JVapiiingtov, June 19.— The Chairman of the Committee on the Election of Presi dent, Vice-President aud Representatives to-day submitted the report of the Commit tee on the Federal Election Bill drafted i a pursuance of instructions by the caucus. The report says, in part: The committee believes that fraud, violence and corruption exist to such a device, and popular confi dence has been so largely shaken in regard to elections in many Congressional' dis tricts, that they have as little doubt of the expediency of such a measure as this, which they propose, aa they have of the. full and absolute power of Congress to enact legis tion of this kind whenever circumstance* seem, as they do now, imperatively to de mand it. Two Petitions. Wasdixctok, June 19.— Morrow to-day presented the petition of Carlos Troyer, Librarian of the California Academy of Sciences, and other San- Francfscans, in favor ot the Copyright Bill.

Taylor & Co. and the Corralitos Papal Mill Com pany, objecting to tho omission in the re vised Thrill Bill clause affecting papm makers of felting. Tho omission practi cally places the goods mentioned under the general woolen basis, and increases the cost of all felts for paper-makers' use. The pe titions urge the California repies-ntativei to try and have the difficulty remedied. Withdrawn His Appeal. Washington, June 19. — Charles E.
