The federa elections repeal bill occupied the entire.ECS slon of the senate today. Senator Chandlei concluded his speech , which has cxtendci through tha two or three weeks , and was followed by Senator Palmer , who arguet that the law having entirely failed of Iti purpose , and being generally obnoxious , ii should be repealed. In opening this morning Dr. Mllburn , the blind chaplain , In his prayer made a touch ing allusion to the life , services and dcatli of George W. Chllds , the Philadelphia philanthropist. "While the tolling b.ell telU of a passing of a noble soul from earth , ' said he , "we bless Thee for the country ant national life in which and through which t boy , born In poverty and obscurity , f > y indus try , temperance and frugality lifted hlmscll to affluence and power and shed bencflcenct upon every hand , yielding happiness by the grace and kindliness of his nature , enriching all men's lives with whom he came In con tact. We render to Thee devout gratitude that there Is a land which may produce under the blessing of Thy fatherly love , through Jeaus Christ , such types and ele ments of character. We pray that the les ion of this man's life may be read with kindly and reverent hearts by the yount men of the whole nation ; and so may the man's death be richer In Its effect than ever the beneficence and sweetness of his life. " Resolutions from the Massachusetts legis lature protesting against the cotton rchedule of the Wilson bill were laid before the sen ate and read and referred. An animated controversy on the fnnchlse qualifications of the state constitutions ol Mississippi and Massachusetts took pl&cc between Senators Fryo and Hoar on cue side and Senators Gray tnd Bate on the other , and Is likely to bo renewed tomorrow , when the final vote Is to be talfcn tm the bill. Senator Chandler spoke on the bill. "We turn now , " said he , "from the ques tion of money to the superior question ol man and his liberty. Banks and tariffs and otocks and trades , let them rise or let them fall. Freedom Is a common heritage. Con troversy over silver and bonds are inciden tal ; vlllganco to protect , the lives of citizens and the freedom , purity nnd honesty of the 8Uffr is-YltaUandinust bs eternal if the republic la to live. "I wish to speak briefly In behalf of the colored people of the country who stand sadly In need of consideration and protec tion. " "Will the senator say , " Interrupted Sen ator Palmer of Illinois , "that the laws , which are now sought to be repealed , have secured to the colored people the rights which he claims for them ? " INDULGED IN A LIVELY TILT. A lively tilt took place between the two senators , after which Senator Chandler , con tinuing his argument , reviewed the ante- war history of the country and then , allud ing to the attempts made by the democratic party In recent years to secure the repeal of the federal elections law , said : "Where is the democratic party to stop , If tomorrow H repeals the elections law which was adopted to carry Into effect the fifteenth amendment ? Will they not appeal the fif teenth amendment , also ? If they take away the suffrage from the black man , 'will not they also , little by little.u ! this action , cotife to reduce the black man substantially to a condition of slavery ? " Continuing , Senator Chandler expressed regret at the defections on the republican side on this question , referring especially to Senator Stewart , who , ho said , although the author of the fifteenth amendment and the leader In the movement to pass the stat ute of May IS , 1S70 , the most valuable portions tions of which are to be repealed by the pending bill , now gives the repeal bill his uupport. Senator Palmer of Illinois followed Senator Chandler and opened with a history of the birth of the republican party and tracing Its course to the war , which had resulted in the liberation and enfranchisement of the negroes , said It was now contend by the republicans that the ncgrcea ehould vote with them and for their policies "because they liberated them. " Upon the other sldo of the chamber It was contended the negroes In the Eouth had not their proper representation In the governmental affairs. "Within a few days past , " ho said , "we have been engaged In a discussion of the Hawaiian question. We found the total pop ulation there numbered 00,000. The whole American population Is less than 3,000 , and yet these 3,000 white men own more than 74 per cent of the entire property of the Islands. The natives own but eighty onu-hundredths . of 1 per cent of the property of the Islands. The white population of those Islands has overthrown the government and established Another,1 and are about to proclaim-or have proclaimed , a constitution , with property qualifications , and yet a few days ago 1 heard one of the leaders of the republican party in this chamber declare tlmt those men who have overthrown the native gov ernment and native supremacy were Russols and Sidneys. This Is the view of the party that now claims to be the champion and the preserver of the rlghtn of the colored race. " FRYE'S REVIEW OF TAMMANY FRAUDS. Senator Frye of Maine reviewed the his tory of the presidential election of 1SCS and the Tammany frauds of New York City. He also quoted the constitution of the state of Mississippi and denounced Its provisions re quiring the voter to be able to reud the con stitution or give a reasonable Interpretation of a section of It when read to him , "Does not the senator know that Massa chusetts has an even more stringent provis ion ? " Inquired Senator Gray , "No , It does not. " "Yes. It does. " Senator Bates of Tennessee read the fol lowing provision from the constitution of Massachusetts : "Every male citizen of SI years or upwards not being a pauper , who Is able to read the constitution In the Eng- lUh language anil write his name , shall be entitled to vote. " After some further colloquy over the sub ject between Senators Frye , Hoar and Gray the senate at 3 p. m. went Into executive vcsslon and at 4:10 adjourned IN TIlKlIOfSI- It * Time Yeiteriluy Aliinrbcil by tint Debate Upon llairnli , WASHINGTON , Feb. 4. The Hawaiian de bate absorbed the time of the homo today , a night session being held to permit speeches by those members who desired to talk , but who otherwise would have not had an op portunity to do EO on account of the limited time allowed. The debate JB attracting loss U > * n waa anticipated. . This is perhaps partly due to the abandonment of the policy of restoration by the administra tion , and partly to the fact that the long tariff debate ha * surfeited the house. The princi pal speeches today were made by Messrs. Johnson , Boutello of Maine. Patterson of Tennessee , and Black of Illinois. Mr. Everett of MasaohUJatts de livered the Invocation at tlio open ing of the session of the house this morning. Mr. McGann tried to obtain unanimous consent for the consideration of n resolution he offered to investigate the action of Judge Jenkins In the Northern Pacific cafe , who e employes he had enJoined - Joined from striking , but objection was made. The resolution was as follows : Received , That the committee on Judi ciary of the house be and is hereby directed to make such Investigation Into all the matters and things herein alleged , and to report to the house as to whether or not IJon. Judge Jenkins , Judge of the United States circuit court for the seventh .circuit , IIBB therein abused the powers or process of said court , or oppressively exercised the same , or has used his office as such Judgi to Intimidate or restrain the employes of the Northern Pacific railroad , or the officers of labor organizations to which said employes , or with which any of them were affiliated , In the exercise of their rights and privileges under the laws of the United States ; and 1C they shall find thaf the said Judge has abused the process of said court , as alleged , or oppressively exercised the powers of his office as Judge of said court to the Injury of the employes of said railroads and others , then to report whether such act or doings of said Judge warrant the presentment of articles of Im peachment therefor ; and to further report what action , It any , should be taken by con gress to prevent a recurrence of the condi tions now laid by said order and Injunction upon railway employes on the said Northern Pacific road , those engaged upon other roads , officers and members of labor organizations throughout the country , and all persons gen erally. " CALLED HIM TO ORDER. The Hawaiian debate was resumed by Mr. Morse , republican of Massachusetts , who had five minutes. Before he had proceeded for a minute , however. Mr. Outhwaite , democrat of Ohio , had called him to order for unpar liamentary language. "To what language do you refer ? " asked Mr. Morse. "To the Insulting , Impudent and unparlia mentary language Just use < J , " replied Mr. Outhwaite. Mr. Morse , according to the rule , took his seat and the words excepted to were read at the clerk's desk as follows : "And yet , strange to tell , at the command of their master , the great Grover Cleveland , his cuckoos In the house and senate , staunch southern democrats , the loudest shouters for a Khlte man's government , disregard all their ancient traditions about white men's supremacy and the white man's govern ment. " The speaker ruled that the language was unparliamentary. Before Mr. Morse could proceed , however , his time expired. Mr. Johnson , republican of Indiana , took the floor and made a strong npeech arraign ing the present administration In attempting to restore the deposed queen. He drew a vivid picture of the efforts of Minister Willis and evolved out of It a new comic operate to be called "Lllluokalanl. " Mr. Patterson , democrat , of Tennessee fol lowed. The sugar interests , he argued , were behind the annexation movement. If the Islands could have been annexed under the bounty clause of the McKlnley law the sugar planters there would have received from the United States treasury $00.000,000. "The desire of the sugar planters to put their hands Into the pockets of the American people lay at the bottom of the revolution in 1893. " said the speaker. Impressively. "The great haste manifested to secure annexa tion , " lie said , "is Because those In the con spiracy knew that Grover Cleveland , whens inaugurated would neveF'glve Ills con'scnf'io the territorial extension of the United States to those islands , 2,000 miles beyond our western shore. " Messrs. Wheeler , democrat , of Alabama and Dates , democrat , of Alabama continued the debate. The former delivered a glow ing eulogy of President Cleveland. The latter argued in behalf of the adoption of the McCreary resolution from a legal stand point. BOUTELLE'S HOT WORDS. Mr. Boutclle , republican , of Maine , who followed Mr. Oates , after reviewing the contents of his resolution reprobating the policy of the administration , added : "What ever may be the tardy expression of the house , I claim a favorable verdict on my Indictment from the American people. " Continuing , he followed events to the at tempted promulgation by the ex-queen of a new constitution January 14 , 1893. That act denominated the political suicide of the Hawaiian monarchy. "The honor of the American name , " said Mr. Boutelle , "Is being dragged In the dust by Grover Cleveland , W. Q. Gresham. James H. Blount and Minister Willis. I have .no words to express my contempt for the policy of treachery , duplicity and false pretence. You on the other side cannot condone this outrage ; you cannot make this heroic. " ( Applause. ) Proceeding , he characterized Mr. Gresham as a "disappointed and apostate secretary of state who. In conjunction with the president , sought not only to uproot and overturn an American government , but to degrade the American navy by putting it under the con trol of a Georgia politician In order to get some one who would haul down the American flag. " ( Applause. ) He concluded with a glowing eulogy of the American flag , reciting a few verses , a sort of an apostrophe to the stars and stripes , written by a native of Hawaii. He was liberally applauded when he took his seat. Mr. Black of Illinois , ex-pension agent , de clared for a policy of non-intervention. Mr. Van Voorhls of New York , a member of the foreign affairs committee , declared In favor of annexation. Mr. Griffin of Michigan closed the debate for the afternoon with an argument In sup port of the McCreary resolution. At 0:15 the house took a recess until S o'clock. Not inore than a dozen members attended the evening session. Mr. Hall of Minnesota seta spoke In support of the administration and charged that the revolution was the re sult of a conspiracy , made posblljle by the covert aid ct Minister Steven * and the presence of the United States troops. As the fact grew clear , public sentiment will place In every honest hand a whip with which to scourge J. L. Stevens through the land , Mr. Stalllnga of Mississippi took practi cally the same stand , while Mr. Post of Illi nois contended that the attempt of the ad ministration to restore a debauched ami dis carded queen could not be condoned or wiped out by the passage of a partisan reso lution. Mr. Lacey of Iowa and Mr. Stock- dale of Mississippi were the last speakers. At 10:30 p. in. the house adjourned. MMlllASKA WAS M.IC.

GOES TO HIS DEATH WITH A BOLD FRONT Ho Crletl "Vive Annrchle" nnil "Dentil to Society" on the HrufToM of the Gulllo- tlnc The Cro < U that Kan Him Die. PARIS. Feb. G. August E. Valllant. the anarchist who on December 3 last threw a bomb Into the Chamber of Deputies , was executed at about 7:30 : o'clock this morning. Ills lost words werrt "Death to society ! Long live anarchy ! " The execution of Valllant was a decided surprise to the people of this city who have for a week past been haunting the neigh borhood of the Place do la Koquette In an ticipation of witnessing Valllant's execution. As late as Saturday afternoon It was re ported that Premier Caslmlr-Pcrler and M. Dupuy , president of the Chamber of Depu ties , favored a commutation of the anarch ist's sentence , and It was sald'that even if ho was executed at all he would not be decapi tated until the middle of the week. But late last evening It became known throughout Paris , In some mysterious man ner , that Valllant was to be executed , and people soon afterward began gathering about the neighborhood of the famous prison of la Roquette , and at C o'clock this morning , In spite of the fact that It was raining , quite a large crowd had gathered about the prison , and were watching Qe workmen erect the barricades across all the streets leading to the square from which the people were soon afterward driven by the police. The night was pitch dark when the work of erecting the guillotine was commenced. The lower classes sent representatives who appeared to be In sympathy with the man about to be executed , and were loud In their blasphemies and threats of what would happen In the near future If the present condition of affairs continued. Shortly after 3 o'clock a detachment of the Garde Republlcane arrived upon the spot and the center of the Place do la Roquette was cleared.Later a squadron of mounted Gardes Republlcane arrived on the spot. The arrival of the military caused the crowds to Increase and there was a rush of men and women up the Rue la Roquette , which caused the police to make a determined counter movement , sweeping the crowds backward until order was com pletely restored. By this time fully 2,000 policemen of various descriptions and Gardes Repub llcane were upon the spot , and everything was ready for the arrival of the guillotine. This familiar death machine arrived In two large vans at about 2:30 a. m. , accompanied by Monsieur de Paris ( M. Dlebler ) . the public executioner , dressed In a frock coat and a high hat. M. Dlebler superintended every little detail of the work of his as sistants , who , pier by pier , and In deep silence , only broken by the sounds of the heavy mallets which they used , slowly erected the platform so familiar to the general public. When the guillotine was standing , com plete and ready for Its deadly work on the well marked spot in the center of the place , the executioner , lantern In hand , carefully ciamlncd everyl"part of tncT" hr.ic1ime7'"fn- eluding the wicker basket nearly full of saw dust , which was to receive the head -of the anarchist. FEARED ANOTHER BOMB. While the work of the executio'n was In progress M. Dlebler informed the police of ficers in charge of the place that there seemed to be less space than usual In the square , but the officers Informed the execu tioner that the crowd was kept at the usual distance , to which M. Dlebler replied : "Well , never mind , a bomb might be thrown from the barriers. " The police , however , after consultation , determined to take the executioner's hint and the barriers at the different streets and about the various portions tions of the square were ordered to be moved backwards. While this work was In progress the re port reached .the group of newspaper men who had assembled to witness the execution that President Carnet had recently received several threatening letters and that the police were taking extraordinary precautions to prevent the possibility of a bomb out rage. rage.M. Dlebler's son-in-law and asistant , dur ing the early morning was kind enough to Impart a piece of news to the newspaper representatives who had mustered In force at a neighboring cafe , where they clinked glasses with .the executioner's assistant while waiting for dawn. M. Dlebler's as sistant said that the executioner no longer holds both ears of the condemned man , as has been done until recently , when the head of the criminal has been passed through the neck-hold below the knife preparatory to the falling of that trenchant blade. When asked the reason for this change In the method of execution. M. Ulebler'H as sistant said that It was because the fingers of the public executioner had been badly bitten by Tropmann at the time of the exe cution of the assashin , who objected to hav ing his ears held In the manner described. - "M. Dlebldr , " the newspaper men's In formant added , "now leaves the job of holdIng - Ing the ears to one of his assistants. Wo don't believe Valllant will bite , however. " The police arrangements were admirable , and long before the hour set for the execu tion complete order prevailed everywhere and the chief of the municipal police came toward the prison with his lieutenants. By this time the rain had stopped and every point of vantage about the Place de la Ro quette had been occupied. The judicial authorities arrived at the prison at 6:15 : a. in. , and entering the cell occupied by Valllant they waked him and In formed him that his last hour had arrived. Valllant did not scorn to be In the least as tonished or much alarmed. Ho turned deadly pale , It Is tnie , but he began dressing with all the haste which would bo expected and remarked to one of the prison attend ants : "You see I was right In saying that my sentence would not bo commuted , " It was evident , though , from the manner In which ho said this that he was considerably disappointed and that he had built up strong hopes of ( Slemency upon the part of the pres ident of the French government. VAILLANT'S VALOR. While Valllant was dressing , one of the officers , noticing the anarchist's hands trembling sllghtly-as he put on his clothes , said : "Have courage , Valllant. " - To this Valllant smiled In a sickly manner , and , throwing ; his head up , replied. "Never fear , I will know how to die. " At this point of the toilet one of the prison oQlclals offered Valllant a largo glass of t-onio strong cordial Intended to brace up the man's nerves , but Valllant gently put It on one side , saying "I have no need of artificial btrength uu.l despise a man who needs brandy to nerve him to meet his fate. " This calm and courageous bearing of the anarchist won him the i-jnipaltiy of every body present , and a veteran of the guard who was present said In an undertone : "That Is not artificial courage. " Later one of the attendants offered to as sist Valllant In dressing for his march to the guillotine , but the doomed man gently but firmly refused , and said : "I will not delay you any longer than I can help. " Valllant , In reply to a ijUrsiiwn as to whether he had any Matemant ! make , be gan making a strong profefcblou of anarchy , defending It In bunting word * , until It was gently suggested to him thst such remarks were useless and out of place. Contrary to expectations. Valllant did not speak of l.la mlstrcis. Madame Mart-he ! , or of his daughter , Sldonl , whose alleged let ter asking for a commutation of her father's ti-tilincf has been ko much dimmed. T\Uv during th preparations for death Valllant refused tdeethe ; prison chaplain saying upon these occaalor.v "I do not be lieve In religion ; It In all n sham. Let the ? who profess religion give some evidence of 1 by extending a helping hand to the deserv Ing poor. This will da more to crush an archy than all the armies of the world. " At exactly 7:20 : a..m. the veteran officer Ii command of the Qu.-yilo lleptillcane gav the order to "Draw swords. " Very sooi after the black gates of the prison wor < swung open and Valllant appeared , heai erect and defiant , between M. Dlebler and hi assistants. The crowd was not stow ti notice that no chaplain accompanied tin condemned man , and It was said In a loui tone from several among those gathered ti witness the execution : "Ho 'dies n true an archlst. " Here and there , as Valllant appeared were heard faint cries of "Vive la anarchic. ' When Valllant neared the guillotine hi glanced upward at the gleaming knife suspended ponded between the two uprights , the bladi shining out clear and distinct , owing to thi rays of the many lanterns around the scaf fold and then he shouted : "Vive la an archie. " A moment later , as he was ascending tin steps leading to the platform of the gulllo tine , the desperate anarchist shouted : 'V mort les bourgeolsel" ( "Death to the bour Eeolsel" ) As ho uttered this , cry Valllant reachet the foot of the sliding plunk which leads tin body of the condemned when strapped ont < It beneath the knife. After one quick pusl he crledi "Death to ioclety. " HURRIED TO DEATH. Valllant had hardly uttered these word ! when ho was seized by M. Dlebler's assls tants and thrown upon the sliding plank , 01 bancuto , to which ho was strapped with re markablc rapidity , and In less time than I takes to write It 'his body was thrus through the lunette or hole In the end o ; the scaffold upon which a half circle 01 locking piece falls after the head Is through a spring was touched and the shining knlf < above the anarchist's neck sped downwan with a swift movement. There was a terrl ble spurt of blood and the head of Valllant separated from Its trunk , fell Into tin basket of sawdust , and all was over With the greatest rapidity the head am body of the anarchist were gathered up placed in separate baskets , and were cs jcorted away from the scene of the eiecntloi at a gallop. ' If the body of the anarchist Is unclaimed it will go to the academy of medicine ; but It Is understood that representatives of som ; of the socialist societies have announce ! their Intention of asking for permission tt bury the remains of the executed man. As the- body was being carried away tht crowds made a tremendous rush for tin guillotine , but were restrained by the troop : and the police were compelled to remain Ir place until the guillotine had been removed Thanks to the efforts of the authorities there was no disorder at the execution , bul this was probably due to the large numbei of police and soldiers. One of the features 6f the execution was the fact that among.fie crowd gathered tc witness It was a large number of people male and female. In 'innsqueraile dress who had come from the bails held last night Among the women were fcome of the lowe.sl of the demi-monde , who behaved In the mosl outrageously indecent manner. August Valllant'was bo'rn at Mezlores , de partment of Ardennes , on December 29 , 1861. He was an Illegitimate son and. led a roving life. At one time he lived Ir Buenos Ayres and at-another In the UnlteO States , where ho pos.wd three month's teach ing school. Ho was married In the Unltet ! States , and by this marriage had a little girl , whose name is SlFlonl. Ho returned tc Paris in 1SS7 , and 'entered ' Into intimate re lations with , another ivohinn namai Marshal , and went to live In Ifje Montihatre district , where In the rate * iiiter.vjlls during which ht worked he secured employment In a fancj leather manufactory 'us a workman or pocket books. " ' - > An Industrious life , h6w"eVer , had very 'lit tle attraction for him , and he preferred tc be a vagabond and thief. No less than five times was he convicted of petty crimes. Ur to 1886 he called himself a socialist revolu tionist , but socialism was too mild to suit his views , so he abandoned It to become an avowed anarchist. lie became active as a preacher of anarchist propaganda while still retaining his members ! ) ! in- one of * the socialist groups. Ills mother lives at St. Quentln , near Paris , It'll an aged anarchist. For a short time previous to his commlslon of the crime for which he was executed he acted as an editor of an anarchist periodical. In August Valllant went to live with his mistress on the second floor .of No. 117 La Rue Refiner. The rent -money , C francs weekly , was paid wit ! , } regularity , and he irapresed his landlord as a sober and indus trious workman. At this time Valllant was employed In' the Petington Morocco works. Two weeks before the throwing of the bomb Valllant asked his landlord to be allowed to pay the rent-'every month , saying he had secured employment as a foreman In Paris at a factory where the hands were only paid by the month : Shortly after this his habits , which had been quite regular , became changed and he frequently was out all night. His mistress told the police he was bo good. Intelligent and klndhearted a man she could not at first believe he com mitted the crime. * CAL'SUU 11V CJtUKLTV.

It was undcrj the pressure of the radicals and their' socialist revolutlonary frlends that for the'-lanf fifteen years meas ures were taken agajn the .clergy and that civilians were appointed- ministers of war and marine. TherauJcals now aim at an electoral magistracy arid the attack on the naval admiral is"a parti of the same scheme. The manifest object of the radicals Is to overthrow the -cabinet ! Had the demands of the agitators , of whom Lockroy Is the mouthpiece , been granted , Lockroy or Bis- son could not have .executed naval reforms , as their speech. ? ? have demonstrated their Incompeteucy , It I * not urn-prising , there fore , that Admiral Qfrrals was bo much Irritated upon seine Lockroy trying to dis credit the navy management at the risk of discouraging the brave ( tailors and of spoiling the prestige of the .navy. The restless am bition of the radicals has led them , how ever , to the forming of a compact moderate majority and It hiay be hoped that fits ma jority will support the preient reform cabinet against disturbers of public order.

It Is understood that this Is a final and desperate effort upon the part of the Insur gents and that on Its PUCCCRB everything depends so far as the revolution Is con cerned. It Is expected that early on Monday morn ing the Insurgent commander will have suc ceeded In landing a force on bhore , which , covered by the fire of the rebel vessels , will advance on the government position and the final batle Is expected to be fought. The foreign war ships are closely watching the operations and there has boon no fur ther Interference of any sort up to the time this dispatch Is fllPd. The general opinion ashore seems to be that the Insurgents will be defeated and that the collapse of the rebellion In this part of the country at least will Immediately follow. _ Later Information concerning the Intended landing of the insurgents In the neighbor hood of Nlctheroy shows that It was the In tention of Admiral da Gama to send his forces ashore on Sunday morning , and that from the advices which he had received from the Insurgent agents ashore the admiral was led to believe that several regiments of the national guard would join issue with the In surgent forces the moment the latter landed. It Is added , however , that the plot leaked out and the insurgents were compelled to postpone their contemplated attack until today , but up to the hour this dispatch is filed , the insurgents have not made any at tack upon Nlctheroy , and unless some de cided change takes place soon In the atti tude of the national guard at Nlctheroy , it is probable the guardsmen will remain loyal to President Pelxoto and that the Insurgents will have to still further postpone their de cisive attempt to capture the city. The supporters of the government say Ad miral da Gama's announced Intention of making an attack in force yesterday or to day upon Nicthcroy is only another "bluff" upon the part of the rebel commander , who Is said to lack the energy and ability neces sary to successfully carry out such a plan.

The thanks of congress Is an honor very highly prliied In nvfiltnry .and naval circles , and it carries with it not only dignity and honor , but nlfo several Important official advan tages. One of these is that the time of an officer's retirement Is put off. In the case of Admiral Benham , he will be retired in April next , but should congress give him .1 resolution of thanks his period of active service would be extended ten years further. This would be < he most signal dignity at the present time , as there are few in the naval service who enjoy the honor. It would also carry the pay of an officer on the active list , which Is considerably above the pay of the retired rank. Mr. Money has been alive to the fact that these honors attached to a vote of thanks and he has decided to so frame his resolu tion as not to carry these legal privileges. Mr. Money is a strong admirer of Admiral Benham's promptness and Americanism , but he thinks the Rio incident had not been notable enough to extend the admiral's services ten years or give him the privi leges of the floors of congress.

I'rlnci".h Colomm l > ciiprs from the Jurisdic tion of the French Courts. NEW YORK. Feb. C. A World dispatch from Paris says : The Princess Colonna. daughter of Mrs. John W. Mackay , sailed for America on Wednesday. This news set at rest a rumor that she and her husband bad become reconciled on his giving a satisfac tory pledge of good conduct In the future. After the French court allowed the prince the right to see his children twice a week , the princess found her feltnatlon Intolerable. Besides , from the elaborate recantations by the French press of Its earliest severi ties , her friends augured unfavorable action by the French court. Hence It was deter mined that she should remove from Its ca pricious jurisdiction. ' The princess , with her children , left the Hotel Brighton on Tuesday evening as If for a moonlight promenade , Mrs. Mackay re maining behind to lull suspicion. The spies of the prince and the domestics waited up until 3 o'clock In the morning , and then In formed the holel proprietor , who In turn In formed Mrs. Mackay of what she already knew. When the prince called on Wednesday to see his children he was Hlmply Informed that they were out with their mother , and It was not until bis wife had time to board the steamer that ho was informed that she and her children were beyond the jurisdiction of the French court. All Inquirers were pur posely mislead In order to give the princess time to escape. Her lawyers now propose to continue the fight In America. It Is reported the prlnco sailed for New York on Saturday. Mrs. Mackay quitted the Hotel Brighton on Thursday , but her destination Is known only to her counsel. M III Not Accept ixclmng Coupons.

Mr. George was Introduced by the president of the club , Alfred Bishop Mason , and was greeted with three cheers. He began hie address with a reference to the liberty bell , which had been sent abroad to call the pub- .Jlc's attention to the need of charity. "That great bell which In 177fi rang for liberty , " he said , "rings liberty's downfall today. " The present hard times he declared to be but an Intensification of the poverty that had been chronic for years. The panic had been brought on by the tremendous In crease In values In land , which developed a land boom that had burst. As soon as this panic passed over land values would go up till the boom broke again. Mr. George crit icised President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor for proposing twenty- three remedies In the World and not one the right one. Ho scored the labor leaders for advocating no better cure than organized charity Instead of unorganized. The holdIng - Ing of land out of use , he said , kept labor Idle. There was enough Idle land on Man hattan Island to set every one at work If the people could get It. He proclaimed the single tax as the golden key that would unlock the Idle land of the country. Referring to the name of Abraham S. Hewitt as one of the officers of the Tax He- form association. Mr. George also spoke of his own campaign for mayor. Some one shouted , "Run again In 1894.

In the course of a speech the emperor an nounced the fact that the treaty of com merce with Russia had been signed.

The fa vorable terms of the treaty were entirely due to personal Intervention of the czar and his strong love of peace.
