SEARING THE END
fteiators Listen to Sereral 8hort SpeecI«fB and V«»te on Some AneBdments. fleaa+or Wolcott Announced That Clo ture Was Impossible—Sherman on Bonds. Attempt to Substitute the Bland-Alli son Act Defeated—Perk ins' Amend ment -Lost. WASHINGTON, Oct. 30. -The senate re named i a session at 11 o'clock with 52 wafftors on deck. The urgent de ficiency bill was considered and passed. The joint resolution offered by Mr. Callom, on trar.s 'errinT the model bat tleship Illinois to the state of Illinois as an armory for the naval militia of that state, at the close of the world's fair, was passed. The repeal bill was taken np at 11:30 a. in., and Mr. Wolcott addxeMed the senate. He said in part: All Will Be LotM. We have voted on that amendment to the bill which would give us free coinage. It was lost, a great majority of the senate voting against it. All other amendments will meet a like fate. The fight for silver has failed be cause Democratic support and Republi can encouragement has been with drawn. Tliew has been talk of closure, and senators across the chamber have leaped into sudden reputation by advo catiugit. Mr. President, even the newest senator here must have understood per fectly that closure as applicable to this meneure was an imptst* bility that it couM find no foothold or abiding place in this chamber. These arguments nave been tor the gallery, for a gullible pub lic. For my own part, I should be de lighted to see it enacted. This senate los s i1s dignity Mr. President, when ever it becomes the simple mouthpiece Of the executive will, and when it yields to influences which should have no share in shaping legislation. I state without fear of successful con tradiction that nobody who advocated vSn ..,i the slightest idea that it would pass. rnnn of Ohio followed Mr. Wolcot:. He referred to the depleted condition of the treasury and the in vasion of the gold reserve, which was now reduced to about $80,000,000. To rectify the trouble he advocated the is suance of bonds, which he Baid the secretary of the treasury had not the authority to do, unless by the sanction of congress. He had beard talk of the president taking action hereafter to meet the financial difficulty. He was tired of snch talk, for the president had no right to take any action regard ing the finances of the country. Only the secretary of the treasury could do so. After the unconditional repeal of the Sherman law, the people would find that it wat* rot the germ of all evil. He considered it unwiBe to offer as an amendment to the pending bill an authority to sell bonds, and he would not so. He had read, however, a prop osition for the sale of 3 per cent bond-) to the amount, of $2 »,00J. which he would suggest to give relief. He was followed bv Mr. Gorman of Maryland. The senator from Maryland con tended that when congress met the Democratic party was as hopelessly di vided on the silver question as were the Republicans. There was not a major ity in favor of unconditional repeal, he asserted, for many of those who would vote that way wanted some other measure passed in place of the Sher man law. Mr. Stewart of Nevada spoke for a few minutes after Mr. Gorman. Senator S'uoup of Idaho took the floor at 2 p. m. and read a short speech, predicting disaster would follow repeal. Took a Few Vote* At the close of Mr. Shoup's speech, Mr. Stewart offered a substitute for the Perkins amendment, which was prac tically to the same effect, but differ ently worded. The substitute was lost —nays, 30 ayes. 29. The Perkins amendment was then voted on and lost, 41 to 30. Senator Berry of Arkansas offered the Blafad Allison law as a provision to the repeal bill. He made a short speech advocating it as the best thing under the circumstances, though not entirely satisfactory to him. Mr. Voorhees felt impelled to My a few words. Many policies had been proposed as amendments to this bill, which would under different circum stances meet his approval. He was charged with the great responsibility of passing this bill unencumbered, and insisted that legislation would not end with the passing of this bill. Mr. Voorhees in replying to Mr. Sherman said ihat he would oppose the issue of bonds at this time. He would also oppose Mr. Butler's state bank tax repeal. He was for it as a separate bill, but not as an amendment to this bill The Bland-Alliance amendment was lost by 83 ayes to 37 nays. Allen of Nebraska offered an amend ment to coin bullion in the treasury. Lost. Yeas, 81 nays, 41.

NEW YOKK, Oct 30.—A dispatch from London says: Alelina Patti has sailed from Liverpool for her seventh farewell tour of the United States. She lias aged perceptibly since her last visit, and her voice is little more than a reminiscence of what it was five years ago. Like Sims Reeves, the noted tenor, however, she proposes to stick to the boards until nature ab solutely fails to assert itself, depending on past triumphs and a name to make up whatever may be lacking in vocal ability. Even the fact that her posses sions are rated at the snug sum of $10 100,000 seems to be no inducement to the once famous cantatrice to restnpon her laurels and take the rest of her life SUNFIOWER PAPER, A New Material Used With SSCMM at Saline, Kait. KANSAS CITY. Mo., Oct. 30.—A spe cial to The Star from Saline, Kan., says: The paper mill at this place has completed an important experiment to determine the practicability of manu facturing paper from wild sunflowers. The test was a complete success. Several tona of the weeds were made into paper, which is far superior to straw paper, the fiber of the stifl wer producing as tough and pliable a paper as rags. The mill is now buying sunflowers and proposes to make sunflower paper a specialty, as it can be made very cheaply. This is the first experiment of the kind ever made. Friday evening The Daily Republican run its entire edition on the sunflower paper. Bought Another Ship. NEW YORK, Oct 30.—President Peix oto of Brazil, if indeed it be he, who has-been purchasing munitions of war through the agency of Charles R. Flint & Co., evidently does'not intend to let his success rest on half measures. It has leaked out that El Rio, sister ship to El Cid, has been sold to the same people who bought the last named vessel. This rumor could not be posi tively confirmed, but there is little doubt of its truth. El Rio is in every apparent particular similar to El Cid, and can be altered into an exceedingly fast and efficient warship. Looted and Robbed. MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 30.—The summer residence of Isaac R. Berry, near Min nehaha Park, was destroyed by fire late Thursday night It is thought that the place had first been plundered by thieves and then set fire to, to con ceal the tracks of the raid. The loss will foot up to $10,000. two-thirds of which is covered by insurance. Mr. Berry had moved into the city but few days before the fire. On the same night the summer cottage ot Etnil Hart man, at Minnetonka, was destroyed by fire in the same marner. Won Id Convulse Europe. LONDON, Oct. 30.—The correspondent of The Standard at Berlin says: "I am informed that the memoirs of Prince Bismarck, if published, would furnish a most important contribution to his tory, not only in view of his own com ments upon past events, but also on account of the disclosures that are made from other quarters. These com prise a series of narratives covering the most important episodes in his career which would ordinarily appear in an autobiography." Willis Has Instruction*, SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 80. —Albert S. Willis, minister to Hawaii, has arrived here on his way to Honolulu. Minister Willis says the policy of the govern ment towards Hawaii will be an nounced very soon, probably by the time he reached Honolulu. He is the bearer of definite instructions on the subject While the minister declined to state what action would be taken by the United States, the inference is drawn that the hope of annexation is not to be realized. V ESTABLISHED 1890 MADISON. SOUTH DAKOTA, MONDAY. OCTOBEK 30. 1S9& PRICE FIVE CENT* MAY INVESTIGATE. I'he American Protective Association Likely to Receive Attention From Congress In Connection With the Challenging of Mr. Linton's Title to His 8e«t Expected That Sone startling Reve* lations Will be Made as to Its Methods. WASHINGTON, Oct. 30.—If the house decides to adopt the resolution offered by Mr. Weadock of Michigan, chal lenging the title of Representative Lin ton, of the eighth Michigan to his seat, a congressional investigation of the new political society known as the Ameri can Protective association will be the result. The A. P. A has figured in politics for several years, especially in Ohio, Michigan, Western New York, Illinois and Wisconsin. It a secret anti Catholic or ganization, and has in Detroit and other cities completely upset the calcu lations of politicians. Its power has been demonstrated on more than one occasion, and it had become a night mare to politicians in some of the states mentioned. Mr. Weadock de clines to make the memorial which contains the charges against the A P. A public until it has been formally presented to the house. Speaking of the organization, however, he said that had caused the political revolution in Detroit last fall. 'It is dominated," said he, "in Mich igan at least, by Canndian Orangemen. In Saginaw, Bay City, Grand Rapids, and the cities of the state generally, it is especially powerful. In a way it is sonrething like the old Knownothiug organization, which directed its ener gies against all foreigners, particularly Catholics. This is exclusively an anti Catholic organization and differs from the old Knownothing party in being largely composed of aliens. It claims to control most of the cities in Michigan, besides Toledo, Buffalo and (jther cities. The most incendiary doctrines are promulgated by the leaders of the organiz uion. In my district I have seen alleged photographs of the Catholic university this city representing it as a great, fovt.

Some time ago I saw a circular, a copy of which I have in iny possession, declar ing that the world's fair celebration was a Catholic celebration of the dis covery of America by a Catholic and on Sept. 13 all the Catholics in this coun try would rise up and Slaughter Protestant Neighbors.** Representative Cad well of Cincin nati said a few days ago while he was at home, a delegation of the A. P. A. called on him and informed him that Mgr. Satolli was to be formally recog nized by this government as the pope's emissary, and that a magnificent man sion was to be presented to him here. Mr. Cad well insisted that the reports was untrue, but the committee were ceriH.n mat tne information was cor rect, and demanded to know where he stood on the question. He says that similar reports come from all parts of Ohio. If the investigation is ordered, it is exptcted that some astonishing revelations will be made with reference to this new political organization. Mint Site Proceeding*.
