HI US. Xof Ii | tcctri1 to Come Within llio Limit Flxcil liy COUKFC * * . WASHINGTON , April T.-Captaln Sampson , chluf of the Natal Ordnance bureau , Is pre paring for the iiso of Secretary Long a synop. tlctl sketch ot the visit ot Inspection Just inndo by him of the five plants ot the Illinois Steel company In Illinois and Wis consin. Tomorrow Is set us the dale for opening proposals for supplying the navy with about 6,000 tons ot armor for the now battleships , and as a result ot the legisla tion of congress upon this subject the out- corn o Is awaited with great Interest by the entire Iron tnduntry of llio country , Is evidenced by the numerous Inquiries thnt are coming dally to the department from all quarters. The general opinion of the olllclaU ot the Navy department Is lhat no bldft will bo secured from any of the estab lished armor plants for supplying thin ar mor within the limit of $300 per ton fixed by congrc-ss. H Is expected , however , that the Illinois company will bid within thU flsuro and In order to uncertain the capa bilities ot the Illinois * company Captain Sampson made a trip to the west and his conclusions will bo laid before the secretary In advance of the opening of the bids to morrow. In substance , Captain Sampson's con clusions are that the Illinois company , while splendidly equipped for Its present line ot business and endowed with unexcelled nat ural resources , could not be expected to begin the delivery of armor plato within a lese period than two years after the award of a contract. In this conclusion he takes Issue with the company's ofllcers who con tend that they can begin their output within eight mcntho after contract. The second vice president of the Illinois company , it Is said , until recently was principal salesman of the Carneglo Steel company , and It Is largely upon the technical information ho has ab sorbed during his connection -with the lat ter concern that the Illinois company relics on Its estimates ot cost ot production and tlmo of deliveries of armor. Captain Simpson's report will show that with the great store of rich ores from the Mcsaba and other ranges , the cheap water transportation of the raw materials and of the other considerations , the company itself Is In excellent condition to undertake any great work. Dut ot the five plants visited by Captain Sampson , three being in Chicago cage , ono at Jolict and ono at Milwaukee , only one , It will state , Is now using the open hearth process of making steel , which process Is Indispensable for the production of metal fit for making armor. This Is the plant In South Chicago , which Captain Samp son will eay is equipped with good furnaces and machinery. The latter , however , in his opinion , would need considerable additions to make armor In any sizes thicker than about half an Inch. There are , for Instance , no hydraulic prccaes such as are necessary for molding the big plates and "not a suf ficient power plant to move the great masses of metal about the works. All of this could bo provided , but In the opinion of the chief of ordnance not In time estimated by the company's officers. I'HOI-OSUD MISSION OP FOSTER. Hx-Sccrctnry Not Curtiiln tlmt He AV1I1 Ho to CoiiHtiintlnoplc. WASHINGTON , April 7. Ex-Secretary J. W. Foster had a long interview with Secre tary Sherman and Assistant Secretary Ilock- hlll. Ho then walked over to the white house and saw the president. Of course the movements were Immediately connected with the supposed Intention of the president to send Sir. Foster to Turkey as a special am bassador to undertake the collection from the porte of the Indemnities claimed by the United States in behalf of the missionaries for the destruction of their property and hardships Imposed upon them as a result of the rioting last year in Asiatic Turkey. After his Interview with the president Mr. Foiter was asked the direct question whether or not he was to go to Turkey. He replied that he had supposed the declination of the sultan to create an embassy In Washington made It Impracticable for the president to nominate him as ambassador and that ho had abandoned any expectation he may have entertained about going to Constantinople. The creation of a special envoy by act of congress was an unusual proceeding , only warranted by great emergencies , and ho was not advised as to the view the president would take of the suggestion. Congress would probably act favorably upon his recommendation ; but. If ho should not think proper to adopt that course , Mr. Foster felt quite sure the president would find a man of standing and ability to represent our gov ernment In Turkey , and who , under proper Instructions from Washington , would be able to bring about a satisfactory adjustment of pending questions. i N MVM f < ir the Army.

WANTS THE COMMITTEES APPOINTED Ocriipunt at the Chnlr Itciillcn In n Coal , Distillled Manner mill MllcIlN ( Srent Aiitiliinxc from the lleiitilillcntiH. WASHINGTON , April 7. The house- acted promptly today on the president's mcasag and adopted a Joint resolution authorUIn the secretary of war to expend 4100,000 fo the relief of the flood sufferers of the Mis slsslppl valley. The most Interesting featur of the session was a paseagc between Hep rcsentatlvo Simpson and Speaker Heed. Mr Simpson gave voice to the opposition to th speaker's temporary policy of Inaction , whlc has been smouldering In some quarters , b speaking to a question of privilege. He fin Ishecl a fiery denunciation of the speaker b demanding that he appoint the committee of the house at4 > ncc , and gave notice tha ho would prevent any more attempts to d business by unanimous consent. Several re publican members attempted to stem th tldo of Mr. Simpson's attack , but Mr. lice Bcemoil to desire to hear It , and declined t Interfere. Ho listened to the speech , an then with his usual coolness and lucldlt replied that the speaker was merely" th Instrument of the house ; that he had on force.l what ho supposed to bo the polio desired by the majority and that the nous had power to command the speaker If I disapproved of his course. Tha republican expressed their approval by a round of hand clapping. Mr. Simpson had endeavored to secureth floor Immediately after the routine business Indicating that ho desired to speak on question of the highest privilege. "I hav read an article by Senator Hoar , which re fleets on the house of representatives , am as a member of the house I desire to cnte my protest , " Bald he. He sent to the clerl to bo read , a clipping from a Washington paper. This article declared that the mem bars of the house had been robbed of tliel rights to legislate by the speaker , to whom It referred as a "political cannibal auto crat. " When the clerk had read a reference to "what the speaker In his own flowery Ian KUago calls retrospective legislation , " Mr Dlngley Interposed an objection that Mr Simpson had not stated any question o privilege , but the speaker decided that th member from Kansas might continue. The newspaper article was exceedingly fierce , and when It had been read , Mr. Steele republican of Indiana , jumped to his feet shouting : "This Is not question of privilege and I move that the house now adjourn. " The republicans refused to adjourn , am they cried : "No , " "no. " REED KEEPS COOL. Speaker Heed very calmly rulol on the motion to adjourn , saying : "Tho motion cannot bo entertained at present. " "When It was stated In a newspaper , dur Ing the Fifty-first congress , that members wcro seen drunk on the floor , " Mr. Slmpsot said , "that was considered a question o privilege. " The point which he now raised , ho declared clared , was ono o higher privilege. There upon , he waved aloft a copy of the Forum and proceeded to read rapidly from an article by Senator Hoar , entitled : "Has the Senate Degenerated ? " The extract Which ho quoted was : "The promptness with -which the house of repre sentatlvea deals with some Important ques tlons 4s a good thing ; but Its capacity for prompt , action Is purchased at the price o repudiation of public debts and the supprcs fllon of constitutional rights , dignity and ofD cial authority of the great majority of its members. Gentlemen , from the beginning to the end of their term , are not permitted to make a motion or to utter a word to the assembly of which they are members. Per haps wise legislation may bo secured ) while one house is conducted on that principle , but I am afraid free government would not long endure If It were applied to both houses. " Mr. Simpson read very rapidly , and Mr Steel protested in an angry tone , but the speaker paid no attention to the gentleman from Indiana. SIMPSON WAXES WARM. "I represent a largo district , " shouted the Kansan , tossing down the magazine , "and the refusal of the speaker to appoint the com mittees of tills house deprives mo and my constituents of the right to do business. I propose to rise hero anl protest against this autocratic dictation. It is reported in the newspapers that the speaker says the trouble Is that If the committees were appointed where one Just claim passed there would bo ton unjust ones. Is not this a reflection on this house ? I ask the honorable speaker ? In the Fifty-first congress the power of the minority to protest was taken away and the speaker given veto power. It Is unsafe to give ono man sucli power , for where one despot of 100 might use hs ! power wisely , the other nlnoty-nlno might prove bad spots. " The speaker had come Into Kansas during the o'x > otion and had said on the stump that for four years the Seventh congressional dis trict ( Mr. Slmrxson'e ) had been represented by chao . When the speaker refused to ap point committees the liouso was ruled by chaos. "I demand that the speaker appoint those committees , " ho shouted , "as long aa I am a member of thlo housa no business shall bo done by unanimous consent , and only In tl.e regular form after opportunity for1 com > IJora- tlou by tlio committees of this house have given the speaker the power , by the adoption of the rule * of the last congress , The people might ns well have saved thomselvivs the expense of electing members and given all the power to the speaker.

HEBD itEPLIRS. Thcro was a profoutnCstltnce when Speaker Heed began to explaln l pollcy. Ho said : The IIOUSP will perceive , that the gentle man from Knnsa ( Mr'Simpson ! ) hns made no proposition whntrirrn , upon the subject. He has simply stated his own views , nnd the chair has thoiiRhtl'parhtwis It was best that the matter should bo stated nnd thnt the house should cohsldeV It. So far as Kie power of the speJxkMj Is. concerned , everyone ono who ha ? mail a the subject the matter of consideration underrthrhds that his power Is solely the power of the house , nnd the house can nt nny moment change the notion whlci'i Its representative sees fit to Indulge In. The house hn the power ixt nil times , and while the rules ot the house require certain commlttcea to be .appointed there has nlwnys been nllowed to the chnlr a reasonable amount of discretion na to the tlmn when they should be appointed , Op- Hortunlty Is always Allowed to the chnlr to ml out something about members , so that ho may do the duties which are Imposed won him In the most Intelligent way of which ho Is capable. U Is not a rnro cnse that the speaker has not appointed com mittees at once. A. congress which was called together under circumstances some thing like the present , the Forty-second , was presided over by a very eminent man , Mr. Blalne. and he declined , not declined , but did not see fit to appoint commlttcea. The matter .was brought up In the house nnd he gave his reasons therefor , nnd these rea sons were approved by1 the house , at least no action -was taken by the house on the subject. There are about 150 new members In the liouse. Under ordinary circumstances the occupant of the chair hns tlmo from the 4th of March to the first Monday In Decem ber to obtain information In regard to his fellow members , but under the present cir cumstances there has been no opportunity. Wo have been called together In extraor dinary session , " and the question was , what Is tha best course for us to pursue ! whether wo should fall In appointing tUio committees until such times ns would make the appoint ments morel suitable , or whether the public service was In such a condition that that ought to bo done. The chair has hail full consultation -with the various members , as ho has met them , upon t'he ' subject , and until this morning ho supposed It was the unanimous feeling of the housa that It was not necessary to appoint the committees in haste , because the public service did not requlro It. The chair Is sorry to see that any gentleman In the house lias lent him self to the suggestions which nro sometimes made outside of the liouso with regard to the power of the chair. It Is a power that Is given to him by the house for its pur pose alone , not for any selfish purposes , not for him to carry out nny personal desires or designs of his own , but to carry out the wishes of the house as he understands them after a faithful and conscientious cxamlnar tlon of the subject. It the house thinks that any occupant of the chair is not carry ing out Its wishes , Is not acting as Its repre sentative , the remedy Is in the hands of the house at any time , nnd the chair cheerfully welcomes nny action on the part of the house , whose representative he Is. ( Pro longed applause on the republican side ) . At 1:20 : F. 'n. the house adjourned until Saturday. IMII3S IDI9NT "OI-T FOU Atf OUTIXG. TicnvrH. with. MTN. MrKliilcy , for n Trli Down the I'olomne.

The reading of the president's mes sage , urging congressional relief for the devastated regions of the Mississippi river , was followed by the passage of a Joint reso lution , offered by Senator Jones ot Arkansas , appropriating $150,000 to bo Immediately available for the flood sufferers. It waa passed by the unanimous vote of the senate. The plans were changed , however , when the house resolution appropriating $200,000 for the Mississippi river and Red Illver ot the North was received. This was accepted in lieu of the former resolution and was passed unanimously. Mr. Morgan of Alabama resumed hla speech In support of the resolution , declar ing that a state of war exists In Cuba. It was uneventful and failed to develop any renewal of the sharp personal conflict of yes terday. Mr. Morgan referred to General Wcy- ler's orders , herding together people in the townq and vlllagta of Cuba , for the purpos.0 of starving them.

CHICAGO , April 7. The mayoralty vote complete Is as follows : Carter II , Harrison , democrat , 144,823 ; J. M. llarlan , Independent , 67,072 ; N. C. Sears , republican , 57,566 ; W. Hcslug , business administration , 15,110 ; John Glembcckabore t , laborer , 226 ; II. li. Par- melee , prohibition , 852 ; J. I. Pcatve , Jr. , In dependent , 6SG ; P. Howard Collier , Inde pendent , 88 ; total , 287,431 ; Harrison's plu rality , 77,766 ; Harrison's majority over all , 2,222. Complete returns from alt the wards show the election of twenty-three democratic al dermen , six republicans and HVB Independ ents. As a result the democrats will have a majority of eight over all In the next coun cil. The Municipal Voters' league , formed two years ago for the purpose of Improving the complexion of the city council , succeeded In electing only seven of the twenty-one en dorsed candidates. The man whoso defeat was most desired by the Municipal league , Alderman "Jim" Campbell of the Twqlfth ward and a leader of the -council gang , waa up for re-election and was overwhelmingly defeated. Lane , the league candidate , did not win out , but re ceived sufficient support to cause the elec tion * of Joseph II. Francis , democrat , the first tlmo a democrat has over represented the Twelfth ward. The democratic city ticket was led by Harrison risen , some of the other democratic candi dates running more than 12,000 votes behind. According to the Hecord , the vote for the democratic ticket was Increased through the republican strength thrown by machine re publicans , such as Congrtdsmaa Larimer , State Treasurer Hertz and Sheriff POUM , who In the final roundup feared the election of IVarlnn , the Independent mayoralty candidate. The democrats were also aided effectively by ex-machlno politicians , who quietly separated from the regular organization after the recent - cent bitter contest for the United States sen- atorshlp. Tha strongholds of Martin D. Madden , who was defeated In the republican caucus for senator , went for Harrison for mayor , although heretofore heavily repub lican. Ono consequence of-tho overwhelming dem ocratic victory will probably be the formation of a new civic party , which will place can didates In the field for local elections and which will not rocognlze the national Issues or national parties In the late campaign. The first step In this direction was taken last night when some 12,000 Harlan sup porters left their names at the headquarters to form the nucleus of the new party. In speaking of his victory Mayor-elect Harrison said : "There la no danger that the city will be handed over to two years of vlco and debauchery. I will also promise there will not bo what Is known as 'wide open days.1 I do not recognize the neces sity of public gambling In Chicago , but I bellevo largely in the German Idea of per sonal liberty. It draws a sharp line be tween liberty and license. "I shall enter upon the duties of this ofllco wholly unhampered by pledges of any kind. My purpose la to give the city a purely conservative , business administration. I shall not bo dictated to by any man or league , or any association , and so long as I occupy the chair no ono else will be mayor but Carter H. Harrison. " 11KTIIOIT QETSTHE CONVENTION.
