Johnson & son 120 STATE STREET, The bill providing free homesteads on public lands In Oklahoma territory for actual and bonaflde settlers and re serving ine puoic lands for that pur pose was made a special order, to fol low the Immigration bill. The calender was taken up, the first bill being one appropriating 860,000 to the representatives of Ersklne S. Allen, for an Invention In breach-loading guns. The bill-was passed. At this point Allen made an unex pected move by proposing to take up the Dingley tariff bill, with Its pend ing rreo saver substitute. Allen first asked unanimous consent that the bill be taken up, -and on Aldrlch'a objec tion, Allen moved to take up the bill. There was much commotion at the unexpected appearance of the ques tion, and pages hurried for the leaders of the various elements. Piatt gained time by having the bill read in full. After a whispered conference between Piatt and Aldrlch, the latter with drew his objection to taking up the bill. "I renew It and object," Interposed Palmer. "Then I move to take up the bill." said Allen, with emphasis. This precipitated a roll-call, the question being, shall the Dingley tariff bill, wlth.Its silver substitute, be taken up? The roll-call proceeded, amid the closest attention and Inter est. It resulted as follows: A yes Republican Aldrlch. Cam cron, Chandler, Clarke, Davis, Elkins," Jirye, uamngcr, ueaffruiue, uans brough. Hoar, Lodge;- Macmillan, Mitchell of Orecon, Morrill, Nelson, Perkins, Piatt, Pritchard; Quay, Sher man, Wolcott.

Democrats Blackburn, Blanchard, Daniel Faulkner, Gibson, Gorman, Harris, Hill, Jones of Arkansas, Mar tin, Mills, Palmer, Pasco Turple, Vest, Walthall. Independent Can non, Dubois, Mantis. Total, 21. The announcement of the vote was no less a surprise .than Allen's first move. Aldrlch quickly interposed a motion to refer the hill to the committee on finance, with instructions to report back the bill without the free-silver amendment. This brought Allen to Ills feet in an energetic protest. lie said the Republican party had pre vailed at the recent election, anfJ was now looking forward to effecting tariff legislation. Throughout the camp alen they had promised the people tariff legislation. Why, therefore, should they hesitate now? The Nebc raska senator declared that the sena tors across the aisle did not want toi take up the tariff question at all. Chandler responded,suggcstlng that the recent election hadf not only brought forward the tariff question, but had retired the silver question, so far as independent action by the uni ted States alone was concerned. He asked, therefore, whether Allen was really in good faith to take up the Dingley bill and free it from the silver amendment. Allen replied that the silver ques tloh was far from settled by the recent election. Six million votes had been registered for Bllver. So far as the tariff wa concerned, ho wanted the Republicans to "get into the saddle." Allen declared the Rcpublcans had abandtned the Dingley bill. "Nothing of the klnp," remarked Galllnger, , "It Is 0 announced In Repbllcan newspapers today," said Allen "Let me ask the senator,' Inter posed Chandler, "If he Is so anxious about tariff legislation. wlllhe aid to rid this bill of the sliver amendment, so that the original tariff measure can be acted upon." ' I will act in my own way," re sponded Allen, without bowingray neck to the Republican yoke.', Harris moved a change of the Al drlch motion, so as to refer the bill back without Isntructlons, which was aCAt? this point the morning hour, which lasts until 2 o'clock, expired, and the heated controversy went over. This leaves pending the motion to re turn the Diugley bill to the finance committee, but the motion has no prlvllige giving it preference tomor row, Tl Blon Crime of a Kansas Farmery kh Horrible TortuW Upon His Young iDluighti ters.
