of the majority of thf committee end
which It U bfUcved wcmld t-hed raluable
light on the raid and the reasons It * promoter

Beciftary Chamberlain. The committee , with
the assistance of Sir William Harcourt ,
Sir J Campbell Bannermun and Sydney

decided Uiii. evidence should not be pro-
flueca and that the inqulrj should be hubhed
up without even a preteui-e of probing the
moot important matterb ft was created to
unLarth. This action has aroused a most
uncaKj feeling and naturally led tea sus
picion that Chamberlain and probably mem
bers of the royal family were Implicated In
the raid conspiracy. Tiie prince of Wales
denies he had anything to do with It. but
the fact that his son-in-law , the duke of
rife was closely IdcntlneU with the Char
tered company leads to contrary PURplciouE.
The debate on Monday night , therefore ,
promlr.es epoch-making consequences to the
liberal and radical party.
Father Ducey of New York hat played on
unexpected and Important part in the eight
hour movement among the engineers here.
The statement he fcent by cable a week
ago - as cabled back to London , and oo
Thursday -morning 1 woe waited upon by
t delegation of strikers anrloue to learn
Father Dnrey's London address. Father
Durry consented to meet them at ths Hotel
Ccill. and as a result he cpoke liefore a
great meeting of strikers yesterday at
Greenwich , urging the men to be calm and
earnest , to avoid disturbance , and to etay
of the work *
awa ) from the neighborhood
which hnre been fchut down In consequence
of thf strike. Great enthusiasm greeted his
worflfc and be was cheered to the echo.
Father Ducey lias not been in London be
fore in fourteen years , but found he Is well
known better known than any other Ameri
can Catholic. Bulgravla and Mayfair strove
to make his stay pleasant , but lie preferred
to epend his vacation studying the condition
of the English poor. It was while on on ei-
j > edltion of this sort of Ktudy and recreation
that he visited a meeting of the striking
cnglupere in Deptford last week. That night
lip prepared the statement concerning the
Etrlk ? which was cabled to America. At that
meeting ab soon aE the strikers found out
that Father Durey was in the room there
was a loud call for a Ejwech . and he spoke
c few minutes. That wo ? at the beginning
of the battle , when thf newspapers which
nppobtid the men were predicting disorder and
riot. Father Ducey told the men that the
orderly way in which tliei had conducted
the fight up to that time iad
creatly impressed him. He advised them
that if tbej eontlnutd to be Just in their
demands' and rfasonaWe in the way they
made them they were certain to succeed
in the end. 'He counbelcd moderation and
good order. No English churchman had
shown the slightest interest in the move
ment and the men wcrt. . Impressed. Father
Duccy's peaceful urglngs were vodlerouElj
chcert-d Jii the iall and when he wtnt out
the men followed lilin to the street and
chewed him again. Outot the members of
t ie eomrilttoe- tells me that the two
speeches mafic liy Father Ducey have done
morf to keep the men from disorder and
> mistaken methods than any other influence.
Thub it is quite possible that the American
jinei-t on vacation has prevented riots
among the London strikers.

the ground that the constitution guarantees

The following pairs were announced the
flret for and the last against the bill
Chandler with Cannan ; Cullnm with Grnj :
Wolcott with George , Hanna wjth Row-
Welltegton vilh McLaurin ;
Hanua voted jrt first underth
that Mr Rar/linE , with whom he was paired ,
was prtfcEnt uiid learning of his absence
withdrew his vote.
The folio whig senctorE "were present end
did not vcc Allen , Butler , Teller Tvo
EEnatDrfc , Kyle ac3 Pettlgrew , were absent
and not paired.
An analysis of the vote Ehowp that the
affirmative was cast by thirty-seven repub
licans , one democrat , -one pilner republican
( Jcncs of Nevada ) and one populist ( Stewart
of Nevada ) . The negative vote was cast
by twenty-eight democrats and two popu-
listc , Harris and Turner , ilr. Teller , silver
republican and two populists , Allen and
Butler , did not vote. One populist , Kyle ,
and one tilver republican. Pettigrew , were
absent without pairs , which WOE equivalent
to withholding their vote.
Although the result v-as a foregone con-
clufdon , yet this did not abate the eager in
terest attached to the cloht ) of a great con
test. Earlj in the ( lay the dtbate vas llsl-
letE though enlivened at timen , with violent
criticism by Mr. Allen and by speeches from
MeELTE Burrow E , Caffery , Morgan and Stew
art , Tnhu occupied the time up to 2 o'clock ,
when the vote WOE taken.
Then came a lone parliamentary battle
over final adjournment. The opposition en
deavored to Boore a ; > elm by comjtelling a
vote on laying the president's message be
fore the senate , end succeeding in this at
tacked the majority for refusing to act on
the president's recommendation. The main
desire of those opposing adjournment was to
secure a vote on the Hams resolution call
ing on the president to stop the uale of the
government interests in Union Pacific prnjv
ertlet. For Mine hours a lively contest -was
waged. Gradually the tactics of the oppobi-
ticn were overcome and shortly before 7
c'clock Mr. Morgan withdrew further op
position and the resolution for flnal adjourn
ment wat prepared. Complimentary reso
lutions to Vice President Hobart were
adopted and at D o'clock the Cctl scene was

the speaker in firing his signature to the
Dingley tariff bill , a bill providing for the
creation of a currency commltt.ion vmt >
crowded through in the cloning hourt , und
the hpmaturb who thronged the galleries
were treated to a continuous , if not very
brilliant fusillade of oratory for several
hours. The house recessed until after tht
senate had adopted the conference report ,
and one minute und thirtj-oue suconds after
the hou ; reconvened the engrossed bill war
cigned and on its way to the president. The
demouBtratloifc which marked these rv its
were spontaneous and enthusiastic in the
extreme. The gUlerlet , played a significant
part in them.
When the president' * message came in
recommending the creation of currency
coininilon it wae received by the repul-
llcan leaflere w'ith great promptitude. By
means of a special order the Stone bill in
troduced tome dayp ago , with the approval
uf the administration , wan brought to a
\ote after an hour's debate. Considerable
foe-ling was manifested on both eldte There
w ere eoine sharp exchanges and t.ame iiliter-
netc was dlsjilajed. There wae , of course ,
the usual attempt to make political capital
out of the jJltuatlon , but all realized the
bill would not pate the ceiiate , end to that
extent the debate latkod fceriousncss. BtlU
the republican Ikadere felt they wore doles
their duty When the vote wu taken the
republican * preceuted an unbroken front
