THE SILVER BILL. Its Place in the House Not Yet Decided, Another Day Consumed in Parliamentary Debate. 4b Effort to Be Made to Consider the Senate Amendments To-Day— A Night Session. Bpecial Dispatches to The Morninm Call. Washington-, June 20.— 1n the House this morning yesterday's contest was re newed. The Speaker announced the pend ing question to be ordering the previous gue:-ti.'!i on the motion made by Mills to approve the journal of Wednesday as amended by the resolution yesterday. The previous question was ordered— ayes l^'i. noes 122. ' L Great applanse on the Democratic side.] Morrow and the wholn Pacific Coast delegation, except MeKenna and Yamlever, voted with the Democrats. McKinley voted "aye" nnd changed bis vote to "no," and then moved to reconsider the vote. McHUlin moved to lay McKlnley's mo tion en the table. The motion was carried —ayes 131, noes n't I—so1 — so tbe previous ques tion was ordered on the approval of tho journal as amended, which was agreed to— ayes 132, noes 130. The clerk then pro ceeded to rend the journal of yesterday's proceedings, which was nperoved. Stewart of Vermont presented a confer ence report on the Anti-Trust Bill. Bland raised a question of consideration and offered a resolution that the IJouse bill directing the purchase of silver bullion nud the is.-uance of treasury notes, with the Senate amendments, be taken from the Speaker's table and the Senate amendments concurred in. The IJouse determined by a vote of 144 noes to 102 ayes to consider the conference report. The entire Republican Pacific Coast delegation deserted tbe silver men. Tne Trust bill was then taken up. Alter a short debate the report was aaopt ed—ayes 243, noes 0. Bland then offered a resolution to take up the Silver Bill. McKiulev made a point of order that the motion was not privileged. Conger of lowa added the further point, an.id sarcastic Democratic laughter, that the bill was net en the Speaker's table, but in the hands of the Coinage Committee. Bland held that the bill was on the Speak er's table. A long discussion followed as to whether the Senate amendments to the bill were new matter, such as would require consideration in committee of the whole. Conger &\\d, notwithstanding the action of the House in correcting the journal, the bill had been referred to the Committee on Coinage, and the Chairman of that commit tee had actual possession of it. Crisp said there was no evidence of the reference. The journal did not show it. . Morrow said the action of the House yes terday was exceedingly sigiiifk-ant in its disposition. The fact is there was no refer ence at all. The Speaker had no authority to refer the bill. Jiis action was not void able, but void. The fact was the bill was upon the Speaker's table. The mere phys ical fact that the gentleman from lowa (Conger) or his clerk had actual possession of the bill made no difference in its parlia mentary I ositiou. Butterwortn denied that the House, by adopting Mills' resolution, declared the bill had nut been referred. - Henderson of lowa asked If Morrow would contend if the House, being under Democratic management fur the time being, should burn up the record of the passage of the Senate bill the bill would fail? Jiorrow insisted there was a material difference between the fact and this suppo sition. Buttorworth declared there were not twent\-Gve men under the dome of the Capital who believed the bill incorrectly referred upon their oath. [Republican ap plause.] Morrow leplied that the majority of the House had declared otherwise. Williams of Illinois said that yesterday while the motion to reconsider was pend ing and the resolution had been adopted, the Chairman of the Committee on Coinage walked uu to the Speaker's desk, took up a bill that he (Williams) believed was the Silver BUI and handed it over to the clerK of the Committee on Coinage. This looked like a conspiracy to obtain physical posses sion of the bill. Conger, the Chairman of the Committee on Coinage, said the bill was delivered to bis clerk before 11 o'clock yesterday morn- Ing. During the afternoon, upon the re quest of the journal clerk, it had been put in his possession for a short time, in order to make some clerical indorsements, but be (Conger) had again taken it back to the committee clerk. Mil rearv maintained that under the Constitution the bill had never been prop erly in charge of the Committee on Coinage. '1 he Constitution required the House to keep a journal, and until that journal was approved it was not proper to send a bill anywhere. The entry in the journal was void. He held that the bill was on the Speaker's table, and should be placed be fore the House for action. Alter a further discussion by Bland, the Speaker and others Bland modified the lan guage of his resolution so as to direct that the Speaker, under Rule 24, should lay all matters on his table, including the Silver Bill, before the House for action. The Speaker said that perhaps he could Simplify the matter and suggested to Blind that he understood his wish to be simply to get at tnis matter when it would naturally come up, supposing it was upon the Speak er's table, bo! passing upon the matter it -t/rfsTliuie. What the Chair proposed to do was that when the bill was reached it should be brought before the House, but the gentle man did not seem to consider that this was Friday, private bill day, and that private bills al.,nb were in order. Bland asked whether the bill would be laid before the House to-morrow morning. The Speaker declined to answer that question until the proper time. llcComas demanded the regular order. The Speaker said that the regular order was a private bill which he passed to the reading clerk. Springer wished to know when the Chair might be expected to decide where the bill was. The Speaker— Whenever the bill would be in order, providing the views of the other side were correct, about which the Chair presents no opinion because he does not think it is the proper time. As Bland and Springer finally insi-tefl on a specific ruling the Speaker linally ruled that Wand's resolution to proceed to the consideration of the Silver Bill was not In order under the rules. liland appealed. McKinley moved to lay tha appeal on the table. The ayes and noes were ordered, pend ing which Crisp moved that the House ad journ. The motion was defeated, but tbe hour of 6 o'clock hail arrived, and the House under the rules took a recess, the eveniDg session to be for pension business. No business was transacted at the even ing session, however. THE SILVKII MARKET. Ihe Government Comphtes Its Purchase for This Mor.'h. Nkw Yokk, June 20.— Since the Ist of June the silver bullion on baud, as reported by the New York Stock Exchange has in creased 1,155,<)83 ounces and outstanding certificates 123 L Bar silver in London h 47#d per ounce. New York selling price, as reported by the bullion-dealers, is Si M%. The United btates Treasury was a heavy purchaser of silver in the market yester day, am* -'<ured over 700,000 ounces, iuf- The Morning Call. ficient to make up its purchases for the mouth. It will therefore not figure in the market again until July. The outllowof gold is apparently checked, for 5250.000 at least. Speyer & Co.. who yesterday engaged $2. r io,ooo for shipment, have countermanded their order. Tho rea son assigned is that exchange at Berlin on London has advanced, while sight bills at New Y»rk and London are lower, which about wipes out the slight profit which re cently existed on shipments made in con nection with exchange operations at these centers. On the other hand. HeiUenbaeh, Ikeltiielmer ft Co. ordered S-J50,0u0 gold for Paris, at which point exchange on London has recently declined from £"> francs 18 centimes to J5 francs 14)4 centimes. This, with tlie Xcw York rale in Loudon, en ubles the shipment to he made. A new story is started this afternoon to explain the gold movement, to the effect that the Bulk of Germany had offered a premium of oue-tentli of one per cent od all gold received* The limes say?: U. O. Mills is ouoted in Wall street as pooh-poohing the stock market scaie resulting from the recent gold exports. Mnnton Marble, in a letter to the World from Jans on tlic Free Coinage Hill, says: "Any Mlver-purcliase bill complicates the silver problem without solving it. Any free-coinage bill should bo made as perfect as possible, so the i'lesident can morn easily abstain from a veto, which it would be ab surd to anticipate, in order the more surely to defeat his party at the coming elections. Our silver and gold certificates are a paper currency so admirable that there need be no change in thfl present provisions of the law. The [egat-tendei quality is obviously unnecessary. The existing gold monumen tal monometallic coinage can proceed on changed, the silver monometallic coinages can proceed unchanged. Any reforming of their lost link by free bimetallic coin age, at whatever ratio, will suffice them. Any silver legislation should adopt a coinage ratio of 10 tv 15%, mid way be tween our earliest error of 1792 of 1 to 15, and our latest error ol 1834 ol 1 to 10, thus conforming to the ratio of all other great bimetallic coinages, 'i hat ratio retains the present gold dollar and required a silver dollar of 400 grains. I remain of the opin ion that the concurrent withdrawal of greenbacks iv some li\<-d proportion to tho greater Increase of silver certificates would guarantee safety to free bimetallic coinage at the right ratio by the United Mates, and Congress would be secure against hostility and distrust arising from unfulfilled pledges. The slow and steady withdrawal of greenbacks would uot only fulfill the nation's pledge, but also transform all our paper currency into one of the best kind in due time, and release to private ownership ail our immense Treasury reserves, save an ample workiug balance."

SAN FRANCISCO. SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 21. 1890-EIGHT PAGES. IS IT A JOB? Sensational Charges Made by Warren Leland. A Daring Scheme to Appropriate Lake Front Park, Chicago. Intimation That the City Council and Illinois Central Road Are Interested In the Plot. •Special Ulspatclies to The Morning Call. Chicago, June 20.— A sensational charge is attributed to Warren Leland, the propri etor of the Leland Hotel, iv an interview published in an evening p:iper. The own ership ol Lake Front Park, which is 1000 feet wide and nearly one mile long, between Michigan avenue aud the lake short 1 , has long been in dispute. The riparian tight is the bone of contention and claim is laid to it by the State of Illinois, the city ot Chi cago and the Illinois Central Railroad Com pany. Lclaud, as owner of property abut ting on the park, has been fighting all en croach menu thereon and has declared his intention to fight the location of the World's Fair upou it, negotiations to which cud have been in progress between the Direc tors and the Illinois Central Railroad. In the interview to-day Leland is quoted as saying that a year ago a bribe of $1,000, --000 was offered him to cease his warfare In behalf of the preservation of Lake Front Park. "And yet," he added, "there are those who believe that 1 am lighting a phantom, and who ridicule the idea of there beine a steal on font. Why, there has been a steal on foot beside which the operations of the Tweed ring pale into insignificance." "If the steal were of such gigantic pro portions a year age, before the proposition to extend the park 1(XO feet more into the lake was made, ol what size do you think it now P It is over §-200,000,000." "Who is back of the steal? Is it the 111 inoi3 Central Railroad or the City Council;"' "1 don't know; perhaps it is one, perhaps the other — perhaps both. A stretch of lmaeination may enable one to Delieve it is neither; but a? such a steal could not beac compllaned without the consent of thb City Council, and as the Illinois Cential Ball road is commercially more greatly inter ested in the aisposition of the property than any one else, the belief that neither is interested can be of but short life." Leland Is quoted in detail as to his ef forts to maintain the lake front free from buildings, including the present Exposition Building, and the opposition he has met from successive city governments for nine years past, intimating there wus mone tary influences bark of their opposition. Leland refused to cive the name of the man who came to him. He said it was a well-known citizen who came as the repre sentative of the other parties, and said: '• I.uland, if you will simply bother your self no more about Lake Front Park, but remain passive to what is done, I can let you in on a deal so you will get a million dollars." The matter bids fair to create a tremen dous sensation. The Directors of the World's Fair form ally declared a preft rence fur the lake front site this afternoon, there being only one dissenting voice. A resolution was then adopted instructiniHiie Committee on Grounds to enter into negotiations with tho city of Chicago, the Illinois Central Rail road and all other interested parties, to se cure an area of the lake front of not less than 250 acres, to be bounded on the north by Monroe street. The Directors are to hold another meeting on June which is just brior to the gathering of the National Commissioners. GIFTS TO CUI^IiIiGES.

An Arizona Railroad Project Checked. The President Disapproves the Maricopa County Bond Bill. Explicit Reasons for His Course — The Measure a Direct Violation of an Existing Law. Special Dispatches to The Mobxi.vo Call. Washington, June President Har rison to-day returned to the House, without his appioval. the bill to authorize the Board of Supervisors of Maricopa County, Ariz., to issue county bonds at the rate of 54000 per mile in aid of the construction of a cer toin railroad. lie says: This bill seems to have passed the House under a misapprehension of its true scope and effect. In the report of the Committee on Territories it is said, "By the terms of the bill the county receives bonds in payment of the money proposed to be advanced." In fact, the bill did uot provide for a loan to be secured by bonds, but for a subscription of stock. How far this mis take may liave effected the passage of the bill, of course cannot be known. A PECTJLIAB ELECTION. The bill dees not eubinit the question cf granting aid to a vote of the people of the county or to confer direct authority upon the Supervisors to issue bonds. It is said, however, that in April, 1889, an election was held to obtain the views of tbe people upon the question. It does not appear from any paper submitted to n;e, who were the managers of this so-called election; what notice, if any, was given ; what qualltica tioin on tho tart of the voters were insisted upon, if any, or in what form the question was presented. There was no law providing for such an election, it being wholly voluntary. The election wa9, of course, under the manage ment of those who favored the subsidy and Was conducted without any legal restraints as to voting or certification. I have asked for a statement of the vote by precincts and have been given what purports to be the vote at 11! points. The total nftirmative vote given wn<- 17ii"> and the negative I'M, but of the affirmative vote 1543 were at Phoenix and 188 at a town very near Phoenix. .-! 1 I ICIKXT OltorXDS FOR A TETO. If there were no other objections to the bill, I should deem this one sufficient, that no provision is mado for submitting to a vote of the people at an flection after due notice and under the sanction of law the question whether this subscription shall be made. But again tho bill proposes to suspend for this case the provisions of tho act of July SO, IStiO, forbidding municipal cor porations to subscribe to the slock, or loaning credit to other corporations; also tvirbnlding corporations from creating a •iobt in excess of 4 i>er cent of their t»xnblu property at I tie last assessment. This law was intended to give the people of the Ter ritories that protection against oppressive municipal debt?, which wore secured to the people of most of the States by constitu tional Jimitalious. IMFFEKKNCE OF OPINION. Th" wisdom of this legislation is not con tested by the friends of the bill, but they claim the circumstances are so peculiar as to justify the exception. Ido m>t think so. Only a belief that the limit Is inflexible will promote care and economy in an adminis tration. Maricopa County Is one of great extent and this great area is to be taxed to con struct a road which can in the nature of things be of advantage to but a fraction of it. There is no unity of interest or equality of advantage. It ni.iy very well be that a section of these lauds along the lino of tho road, especially town lots In Phoenix, would have an added value much greater than the Increased burden imposed, but it is equally clear that much of the properly iv the county will receive no appreciable benefits. MAIUCOI'A COUNTY'S DKBT. The existing bonded indebtedness ot Maricopa County is 5272,000, the tax as sessment about 53,G00,000, and the popula tion estimated lit about 12,000. It will be seen that the bonded debt, to say nothing of the floating debt, which is reported to be small, is already largely in excess of the legal limit, and it is proposed to increase it by a sub scription that will certainly involve $200, --000, aud probably 5250.000. If, the bill be comes a law the bonded indebtedness will very closely approximate 10 per cent of the assessed valuation of the property of the county. The condition of things in the county of Yavapai. lying immediately south of Mari copa, and through which this road is also to run, while not directly affected by this legislation, is very instructive in this con nection. By an act of the Legislature of Arizona, passed a year before the last act of Congress to which I have referred, Yava pai County was authorized to subscribe S-1000 per mile to this line, of road. AN ENORMOUS BUHDE.V. The total length of the road in this county was 147 miles, and 74 miles to Pres cott had been constructed. The Secretary of the Territory states that the debt of Yavapai Comity U 1763,000 and the assess ment "between $f>,000,000 and $7,000,000." There are seventy-three miles of road yet to be built, from its present terminus, Pros cott, to the south line of the county, for which Yavapai County must make a further Issue of bonds amounting to $2<J2,000, mak ing a county debt of SSM.OOOor about 13 per cent upon its taxable assessment (taking that at gu,500,000) and a per capita county debt of nearly $85, taking the population at about lO.tiOO as stated in the report of the Senate Committee. Surely no one will insist that the true and permanent prosperity of these communities will bo promoted by loading their energies and their industries with this great debt. orrr.KSSiVE hates. I feel the force of the suggestion that the freight charges now Imposed upon the farm and orchard products of Maricopa County by the railroad now in operation are ex cessive, but this bill does not afford much relief even in that direction. There would be but one competing point, viz.: Phoenix. At all other points on the proposed road the people would be subject to the exacting of just such rates as are demanded by the other lines. If this bill contained some ef fective provision to secure reasonable freight rates to those people who are to be taxed to build the road it would go far to secure my favorable consideration. 1 h»vo carefully examined the reports of the committees and every argument that has been submitted to me by the friends of the bill, but I cannot brine myself to be lievo the permanent welfare of the com munities affected by it will be promoted by its passage. . IHsCI ssi.U BY IHE CABINET. Special Ag at Fcitet's Bepsrt on th: Fi'.i hu-t■■riiu: Plot. Washington, June 20.— Tlie report of Special Agent 0. E. Foster on tlio attempt to seize L'.wer California was taken to the White House to-d:iy by Attorney-General Miller and laid belore the Cabinet, where its contents were considered fur over an hour. All the members of the Cabinet were present except Bask. Al the conclusion ot the meeting, k repiesentative of the Cali fornia Associated Tress met the Attorney- Geueral nod asked him if tlie report would now !>■■ made public. Ho replied in the negative mid stated that he could not say when he would make its contents public, if at all. After a moment's thought, he con tinued as follows: "There is really no news in the report that baa not heretofore appeared in the press of the Tai-ilk Coast und bren telegraphed eastward. The re port is largely made up of the testimony of witnesses as to who were implicated." "lheu, Mr. Mil.er, as 1 understand it, the report confirms thn statement that there was a plot to seize Lower California, and that an English corporation was implicated in it?" "Yes, sir." he replied ; "that is no secret, as I sail before. The report of Mr. Foster fully confirms the newspaper accounts of the plot. Of course we cannot make public at present the names of our witnesses or whai they testified to, as that would be giv ing our case away in advance. "No decision was reached by the Cabinet, as more time was desired in order to look up certain laws or authorities on the sub ject. I cannot say when the report will be made public, but it will probably not be for some time yet." THB SENATE. Legislative, Executive and Judicial Appropri ation BUI Passed. Washington, June — In the Senate this morning Stewart," rising to a question of personal privilege, denied the truth of the story, recently published, giving an ac count of an imaginary conflict between him self and Reagan. Reagan also stated there was absolutely no foundation for the re port. Consideration of the Legislative Appro priation liill was resumed. The Postoffice Appropriation Bill and Consular and Diplomatic Appropriation Bill were reported and placed on the cal endar. Consideration of the Legislative, Execu tive and Judicial Appropriation Bill was resumed. After some discussion an amend ment increasing the salary of the Commis sioner-General of the Land Office from $4000 to $5000, and the Assistant Commis sioner from $3000 to S:«oo was agreed to. The motion to increase the salary of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs from £4000 to $5000 was defeated. (Stewart moved to strike out the item ap propriating S;>000 for the executive officer of the Geological Survey. This gave rise to a long debate. Major Powell was harshly criticized by Stewart and others and de fended by lugalls. At the close of the discussion the amend ment was withdrawn by Stewart, and the bill then passed. Adjourned. «■ THK DIPLOMATIC BlTjti. Appropriations Made to Carry Into Effect the Fan-American Recommendations.

A BIG INCREASE. The Postrffics App-orriatiou Bill Eeporied to the Senate. Washington. June 20.— The Postoffice Appropriation Bill as reported to the Sen ate to-day appropriates 572,4<>1,u:t9, an in crease of 5473.000 over the amount appro priated by the bill as It passed the House. There is an increase of SoUJ.OOO for the com pensation of Postoffice clerks, and §48,fXH) for transportation of foreign mails. This last increased appropriation is important as it will, if incorporated into a law, maik a departure in the postal policy of the country. This provision in the bill authorizes the Postmaster-General to expend this 545.000 iv covering one-half the cost of transporta tion, compensation and expenses of clerks to be employed in assorting mails in transit on steamships between the United States and other countries in the International I'ostal Union.

Stockton Gives the Home Team a Hard Battle. The Colonels Win a Twelve-Inning Contest From the Senators. Meegan Umpires at Sacramento and Falls to Satisfy the Audience— National and Players' Leagues. After playing an uphill game for seven Innings null a slim-out staring men) In the (ace the s in cis made a gallant batting spurt, mid as sisted by a bit; error ol the cautaln of the op posing team wrested the lead from Finn's men. Bui their hopes of victory were dampened In the ninth when Frisco tied the score, and in tbe tenth secured two runs. It was a pretty contest and entirely different from the one In which Stockton Dguied me pre vious day. The fielding ol both teams was ex cellent and there was Ju>t euougu batting to make matters lively, ituth Young and lei rolt were at their best, the former usiug much speed and placing his curves over the plate 90 de ceptively that up to Ihe eighth Inning only three scattered nits were mads by the (las City play ers. In the last three Innings, though, the coun try gentlemen began to make matters warm for Mr. Young and sized him up for seven safe shots. Superb ball was put up by the Frlscos. Includ ing Ebrigllt, who lias two errors against his name in the score. Outside of the shortstop's blunders me home team play an errorless game and some hard chances were well handled. Speer was back to his old farm again and seemed livelier than ever. lie wound up the game by making a difficult catch of a foul that went Back to the grand stand. The Oakland crowd jeered, hoping to rattle Chick while he was celling under the ball, but the little fellow clung to the put our. Shea and Buchan performed line work In their positions, the third baseman surpassing himself 111 taking caie of sum grounders and he did well with the stick also. Sweeney was like a stonewall at the Initial, and at the plate laced out the Stockton twirlei's curves for a double and a single. Levy's play was marked by a tine eaten of a foul fly, after he had iun about thirty yard!*. Stevens and ilauley had their eyes open both in the Reid and when faclug feriolt. Wilson went home sick yi-tei Jay morning and Selna was detained to guard third base. The big fellow wax a lirstcla'S substitute for Wilson, and made quite a record in the new position. He accepted nine chances out of ten and made a number of eood stops. His throwing across the diamond was swift and accurate. I'cini'i pitched a good game and was finely supported by Stanley, who played without a passed ball ur an error. Smith, at first, Had plenty ol work at lii stand hauled in some wide throwing, but he en to 011 two easy plays, l'o itiiny and fudiier coveied considerable territory In their neighborhood, ftud blocked several grounders that might nave passed as hits. The second baseman accepted nine cuauces without a break and scored two singles. The pleasure of the audience was marred by the high cold wind that prevailed aud swept the smoke from an adjacent factory. The smoke was so thick at limits that the outfielders were hidden from view. One of Ibe feature! of the game was that neither pitcher sent a batter to lust base on called ball*. Ihe score: AT OAKLAND, JUNE 20, 1890. SAX FRANCISCOS. as, It. BIT. SB. PO. A. F.

Hearing of the Cuticura, iikmm.iki I resolved to give them a trial. 1 (oh lowed the directions carefully, and It affords vi« much pleasure to say that before using two boxes o( the uuticura, four cakes of Cuticdra Soap, and one bottle of Cuticcka Kksulvknt, 1 was entirely cured. In addition to ray own case, mr baby boy, then about five months old, was suffering with what 1 Supposed to be the same disease as mine to such an extent that his head was coated over with a solid scab, from which there was a constant flow of pus which was sickening to look upon, besides two large tumor-like kernels on the back of his head. Thames to your wonderful Cuticuba Hemkdiks, his scalp is perfectly well, and the kernels have been scattered 90 that there Is only one little place by His left ear, and that Is healing nicely. Instead of a coating of scabs he has a One coat of hair, much bet- ter than that which was destroyed by the disease. X would that the whole world of sufferers from skin and blood diseases knew the value of your Cuticura Kkmedies .sl do. Cuticura Kksolvknt and Cut- icuba Soap are worth ten times the price at which they are sold. I have never used any other toilet soap In my house since I bought the first caka of your Cuticura Soap. I would be inhuman as well as ungrateful should 1 fall to speak well of and recommend them to every sufferer. I have spoken of It, and shall continue to speak of It from the pulpit. In the homes, and In the streets. Fraying that you may live lung, and do others the same amount of good you have done me and my child, I remain, yours gratefully, (Rev.) C. M.
