WAMIISOTOV , D. C. , Fob. 10.-Tho silver question wilt not down. Its ulseimlon was resumed In tlio house again today upon the presentation by Mr. Illatid of a lotur In re sponse to o"o of the Hat-tor circulars to tlio JJfand Army of the Republic. The scene 'was ono of confusion and excitement at times , but occasionally a good homo thrust from ono side or tbo other brought forth hearty and continued laughter. Mr. Hartor was moro th.in emphatic In his denunciations of the free silver bill wluoh ho characterized as Infamous , and predicted that If It passed the democratic party would moot certain defeat In Novombnr. Warming to the subject ho declared that ' If this frco silver bill shall puss , the tliuo will coino when a man as a democrat will not bo Riven u decent burial In a democratic cemetery. " A resolution was adopted providing for a reprint of the silver bill and the printing of 10,000 additional copies of the majority and minority reports. The bouse then wont , Into committee of the whole on private calendar. ltc 'd itml tint Spruknr lluvc u Set-To. The llrst bill oil the calendar ( which was laid aside ) gave rlso to some discussion , dur ing which Mr , Rood of Maine mailo some of his remarks as to the advisability of count ing a quorum from the mcmbars present and not voting. The chairman and Mr. Hoed thereupon had a short Colloquy , which tlio chairman subsequently alluded to as an "al tercation. " "I hope the chairman will not designate it ns an altercation , " said Mr. Hood. "It was un nltarciittoii of words , " re sponded the chairman. "That was all the clialr meant to say. " Mr. Rood -1 trust that the chair will not designate It that way. U would bo unjust to the chair and to mo. The Chairman The chnlr does not mean to bo unfair to the gentleman. Mr. Heed -I think It is unfair to the chair ns well as to myself. The Chairman The chair will trv and talto cnro of himselt and of the gentleman 1 from Maine , and wilt not do him an injns- "lice. Sillc-rmill ( ho 4) . A. It. The next bill for tbo relief of A. .I. Dun can of Tennessee was taken up , on which re- volvoil another silver wheel. It was set in motion uy Mr. Bland , who sent to the cleric's dojk and had road H letter from u Grand A mi V of the Republic post in Missouri , ask ing htm to inform the gmitlcman from Ohio ( Mr. Hnrtor ) , in iespouse to his anti-silver circular , that the Grand Army of the KQ- publtc post \vcro able to attend to their own business. Mr. Bland again criticised Mr. Hartor's attitude on tlio silver question , and snld that he felt It to bo a duty to his constituents to luivo his letter read. Mr. liarlcr said that ho ascribed to his friend ( what tils friend did not ascribe to him ) lionebty of purpose. The free Mlvur bill was an infamous measure , and yet ho ascribed to the gentleman an honest nurpo.su in submitting It. This same class of loelslu- tion called protective tariff legislation legis lation which was nuuliisl the many in the in terest of tno few-was Infamous and out rageous. He would bo the last man in the world to suy that his friend and relative , McKinluy , was an Infamous man. The difll- culty was not with the heart of his friend , Mr. Bland , but the trouble was with his head. Tlio house had been told that ono class of legislation fell heavily upon nlnoty- llvo citizens of every hundred , and teen away 'their property and handed it over to the other live under ttio operation of the McKinley net. But there warn other burdens and ono , gentleman seemed to think it was perfectly right and vary democratic indeed to talco the earnings and property , not of ninoty-Ilvo persons out of 100 , but of 1)00 ) ou' , of every 1,000 , and hand them over to monopolies. JtnlHcil I'olnt of Order. McKinnov of New Hampshire raised the point of order that this dlscusiion wns en tirely out of order , not being directed to the bill under consideration by the committee. The chair sustained the point of order mid ntntcd that the bill under consideration was ono for the relief of Mr , Duncan of Ten nessee. Mr. llartor replied that his remarks wore directed toward that bill , as if Mr. Uune.u : pot the appropriation he wanted to bo paid 100 cents on tno dollar. [ Laughter and iu > - plause. ] After many efforts Mr. Harter again min- ngod to bi'citro the lloor and proceeded with his prediction , which was , that if the house , passed the measure which Invited nil the de graded silver of the world to frco roinago in this country , the democratic nar'y would losu the vo'.es of men who labored for their living , nnd when the party marched to the polls In November , instead of marching to an over whelming victory It would march to certain defeat. Mr. LIiul of Minnesota asked when he understood the gentleman coricctl ) in delln ing the principles of the domocnitio nariy a * frne trade and a single gold standard ! Before Mr. Hartur could reply ho was ngain interrupted by n number of democrats protesting against the latitude of the debate. Mr. Lind Is the position of the democratic party for free irado nnd a single gold standard ! llurlrr Defines IIU I'nrlyM I'lisltliin , Mr. Ilnrtcr The position of the demo cratlc nnrty is in favor of a double standard , and Is in favor of keeping ( ivory dollar wort I ' 100 cents , ( Aiuilmiso on thu republican side \ ntul ( oni-ind for the regular order from the domoiTiuii' . I Mr Lind pressed his question as to the at' tltudo at thu democratic party in regard t < free trado. and Mr. Fithlan and Mr. ilolman In vain attempted to talto Mr. darter from the lloor when ho demanded to make hid ruitly. The chair appealed to Mr. Itnrtar to proceed - coed In order and speak to the bill under con suit rat In . Mi llarler saldho vould do so. This mm i from Tomii'\5eo ! wanted an npproprlatlot j I nusfhtLfJ that appropriation was raised b.\ fixing the people , and the question askei by the gentlemen was highly pertinent undoi the clrcuniMancos. The dcmccralio parti was in laver of the freest posslblo trade toi thn humblest boul and the protection of tin American ( lag. After a Recite of confusion Mr. Hartor sail that thu position of the democratic p.irtv 01 the question of free trade was ihlb-lha every American citizen was entitled to th most absolute tree trud\ with every inlmbi taut of thu globe , limited only by tbonmbui > of tariff necessary to conduct the govern mont.

A sensational dispatch was sent out from Washington last night in regard to the recent marriage of Miss Mary Fuller , iHughtor of Chief Justice Fuller , and IV'r. Collln C.

The members of the family of Chtof Justice Fuller now in Washington say the story has but ere element of truth and that is the fact of the marriage. The fact is related In Mr. Fuller's notu to the Post , which is printed this morning as follows : To the Kdltorof the I'o-tl : WhnnMrs Puller was summoned to Horlln In the latter p.ttt of November by the Illness of our d'uuhtor .Mary , she was iircoimaiilnd liv Mr. Collln C.

So far , however , nothing has been heard from him or. iho subject. The policy of this government with regard to the coming seal season will depend largely on the action of the Uritish govern ment on the question of arbitration.

[ Special Telegram to TUB IJtiR.J John H. Lehman was oxoculod hero this morning In the presence - enco of a number of spectators , for the murder of Jamoa 13. Uurns. Ills neck was broken by the fall. Many people believed Lehman was Insane , but a commission which investigated tbo quoUlon six weeks ago declared the prisoner to bo in hU right mind. Lehman assumed an air of braggadocio when ascending the sc.aflold , but when ho was placed on the trap and the log straps were adjusted and the black cap placed ever his head and the fatal noose placed about his neck , ho collapsed totally , making it neces sary for two deputies to support him until the lover was pulled. His last words were : " 1 wish to say that the sheriff nnd his brother nro very cruel and wicked men , who are murdering men for pay. " At'JifM the lever was pulled and ho shot through the trap. It was evident that his neck was broken by the fall , as hardly a struggle followed. Ills physician , Ed wards , pronounced him dead atU:03 : and the body was cut down. History of the Crime. The crime for which Lehman was hung was committed July 11 , liS9. ! James U. Hums , n constable of Fall-burn precinct , Custer county , hud gene to Lehman's farm with a legal warrant to nrnnt him. Lehman had been told by some friends that ho was to bo arrested , so ho prepared himself , and when Uurns appeared , without any warning , Lonman shot the constable through the body , from the effects of which ho died almost instantly. The murdororcon- coaled himself that day and night , taking Ilight the next day after the murder. First ho wont to Fall Hiver county , South Dakota , about forty miles from his ranch whore the killing occurred , and hired out as a farm hand , working ttoro for a period of throe weeks. Next ho wont to Fort Koblnson , Nob. , ninety miles distant , and lalor ho went to Chadron. Ilo returned to Fort Koblnson , but llnally re moved to Hushvlllc. Sheridan county , where ho hired out to work on a farm. At this place ho was captured September 1 , IbisO , and brought back to Custer county for trial. While away from Custor county ho wont under the name of George Benjamin Law rence. The toward of J300 for his capture was promptly paid by Governor Mollotto. At the November term of the circuit court of Custor county in 1SS9 Lshinan was tried and convicted of murder in the tirst degree , the dotonso of insanity being interposed. \ new trial was granted by the circuit judge. September , IhOJ , his second trial wan had , re sulting in o conviction the samoas in the llrst trial. The case was then appealed to the supreme court of this stato. and the sentotico wus aflirtned June 10 , 1801. September Bl , Ih'Jl , Lehman was sentenced to bo hung on November I , 1S91. The supreme court again intervened , however , and six woaks ago the llnal sentence of death was passed. Ills 1'iiHt I.lfn Unknown. The crime which he expiated was wholly unprovoked and without causo. The mur dered man left a wife nnd fourlittlo children. The murderer had no family and it has boon very hard to lind out anything of his past career. It is now thought ho lived at onetime time , in IbSt , near O'Neill , Neb. , and was guilty of many criminal acts there , among others , of poisoning many horses and cattle of his neighbors. It was in 1SS3 ho came to Custor county. It might bo remarked that Lehman was industrious and erratic till the murder. Ho had boon before the board of insanity at Custor in 1SS9 , and declared sane and dis charged. Soon after ho was arrested for assault , and put under bonds. Tbo bonds being considered lusufliclent , a warrant was placed In Hums hands to rearrest him , Then it wns that the heinous crime was committed , as Uurns tried tc arrest him under this warrant. Mrs. Burns , widow of the murdered man cloned about a year since with ono John b'lbort , who accompanied Burns in his at tempt to arrest Lehman when the shooting occurred. Mr. Slbert narrowly ossnped being killed at the time. The eloping couple , with Mrs. Burns' four children , are in parts now unknown. During the wnolo pariod of Lehman's in carceration under sentence of death ho has manifested a stoical demeanor and an utter indifference to everything. Ho was Irre ligious , and claims to bollovo In no God. The autopsy was held by Dr. Taylor. The examination of the brain found it to bo nor mal and healthy , thereby confirming the ver dict of three soporato trials. 31 ItS. lU.AIMi'S TESTIMONY.

The husband followed the letter In n day or two.

According to her testimony , not only her husband's mother , but his brothers ntid sis ter ( Mrs. Copplnger ) conspired tocothor to broaic up the marriage. James U , Blalno , sr. , advised his boy at tirst id stick to his wife , nnd later , when he learned that she had been deserted , undertook to bring about a roconcllatlon.

I LONDON , Fob. 19. H Is freely stated that the Irish local government bill , as presented In the House ot Commons last evening , Is Iho result of many stormy meetings of the cabi net , nnd that Mr. Bulfour was moro than once overruled. Even the Standard admits this by saying that the bill Is the result of a compromise , nnd that its reception , as In tbo case of all compromises , has not been as Batlsfuctory ns its promoters could desire. While Its reception last evening by the opposition nnd today by the press was iho most hostile ever given to n bill , yet there are now signs of a reaction setting In. The bill , in brief , gives rate payers In Irish countries and baronies full poivor to manngo tholr own affairs. The franchise Is the same as It oxlsts In Kng- land. The Irish councils In some respects nro glvon more oxtonslvo functions than those possessed by iho similar bodies in Great Britain ; and while England Is waitIng - Ing for district councils Ireland is oltcrod baronial councils Immediately. As was ex pected the criticism of the Irish and liberal members turned cblclly on the checks and safeguards ; but few expected such unanimous nnd sweep ing condemnation. < ! eminent Defeat ivieeled. : | Whatever may bo the falo of tbo bill , there is no chance of un appeal to the country on the measures , but everything Intlmalos that the government Is riding for a full and that the dissolution of Parliament will como when it is least expected. Defeat on some side issue would enable the government to appeal to the country without appearing to unduly precipitate a dissolution in order to neglect pledges still unrealized , and at the same time Iho government would avoid uniling friends who object to some projected measures. The thin Ice ever which the government Is skating was Indicated by n vote in the house of commons tonight , when n resolution , ex pressing roc rat nt the appointment of a Welsh judge ignorant of the sVolsh language , was rejected uy a. majority of only twenty- three. Attorney General Wobs'.cr nnd Mr. Balfour supported the appointment. The announcement of the figures of the vote was greeted with loud opposition choors. A conservative member , It. G. Webster , under the cloak of a motion for the abolition of illiterate voters , then proceeded tc maKe a rabid attack oa the Irish clercy. Many mem ber ! ! , sick of Iho debate , immediately quitted the house or repaired to the lobbies and smoking rooms , whore knots of members were earnestly discussing the Irish bill. They soon Ilick'ored out. and when n member noticed that there were only tbirtv-threo members present the house was counted out The prospect of n chance defeat does not conduce to Iho happiness of the government. There nro nearly sixty conservative mem bers who nro notoriously unreliable , while fifty others disapprove of the government's Irish policy und will probably absent them selves from the critical division. 11117/tiriN The weather In Great Britain this week has been most severe with storms on land and on sea throughout the week. In York shire the weather Is the coldest experienced in tarty years. The thermometer registered 0 degrees below freezing in Devonshire and Cornwall. A blizzard is raging todav equal to that ot last year. The gale in the Kngllsh channel further endangers the condition of the stranded steamer Elder and has stopped the work of salvage. Snow storms of unusual violence are raging in Ireland tonight nnd many trains nro groally delayed and many onllrely slopped by the snow. Near Limerick there arc drifts four feat high. At Queonstown n heavy gale prevails. H Is expected that the steamships Adriatic and Ari7ona will go direct to Liverpool without touching at Queeustown. i\rltemellt : Over the Montagu Tragcily. The excitement In Ulster ever the Mon tagu tragedy IB Increasing. The husband of Mrs. Montagu is a grandson of the duke of Manchester and a former oflloor of the navy. Mrs. Montagu was of Scotch extraction and Is the daughter of a wealthy London tea raorchanl. She is noted for her daring horse manship in Ireland. Cromore , her residence , is ono of the llnost mansions in that district , nnd is surrounded by nn extensive ana valu able estate. Mrs. Montagu has hitherto moved in Iho best society. When an Associated prc s reporter called at the resi- aonco today ho found Mr. Montagu engaged with the parish priest , but ho took the re porter over thura and consented to an inter view. Being asked how it was that such severe punishment was admlnUtored to a Il-ycar-old child , Air. Montagu said : "My wlfo has strong opinions on the correction ot children. Her theory , which 1 think Is tea a great extent right , is that the spirit of dis obedience must bo conquered from the earli est yoais. She Insists upon obcdlonco and cleanliness of iho parish children. Unless punished early Ihev contract bad habits. " Mr. Montagu said ho believed that restraint nnd confinement wcro the best punishment. Ho admitted that It was too long to leave the child alone , but his wito had something to do and she was out at the time the child wns conllncd. The child was burled In great privacy Tuesday. Mr. Montagu and ono of his sons look the body In tlio family carrlagu , with the blinds drawn , to the Catholic conic- lory. \Viilu I.fiiirs tlm Turf.

The rumor Ihat Prince George of Wale * caught cold at the funeral of his brother and that his condition alarmed the family is olll- clally declared to bo untrue. A great bonsutlon has been caused in the agricultural world by the report of u bonoub ouibioak of pleuro-pncumonla in the Peace river distilct in Canada.

" The letter grew out of the current report that Soimtor Finn visited a "U bite Chapel" dive Saturday night and was arrested by the police just after the adjournment of the morning session of the senate. Finn walked over to the door or the senate nnd callo.1 Helvol to one nldo within thn senate cham ber.

The speaker further stated that upon the very day that Samuel N.
