Democrats Decide to Drop the Fight
MAY SOON COME TO A VOTE.
It Will Probably Be Reached by
the Close of the Week.

ing Other News of the Capital.
Washington, Oct. 24. At noon Sana
tor Harris, acting for the silver Demo
crats, informed the silver Republicans
that the Democrats hal concluded that,
after taking all the circumstances into
consideration, they had decided that
their best course was to drop the fight
against the repeal bill and allow it to
come to a vote.
If this decision is not reconsidered, and
it does not seem at all probable that it
will be, the end of the present fight will
Boon be reached, and the result will be
in accordance with the wishes of the
president and the repeal forces in the
senate. The silver Republicans will not
undertake to prolong the fight beyond
the time necessary to complete their
speeches, and will after that permit the
voting to begin upon the amendments to
the bill. It is generally bolieved that
this will take place before the close of
the present week. Stiil, in a body which
has shown itself capable of such rapid
changes, no one can tell what a day may
bring forth, and there is a possibility of
some transformation which may produce
The Republican sil ver senators said
their course in this matter would de
pend entirely upon the Democratic sil-
rer senators. They said from the be
ginning that whenover the Democratic
silver men should refuse to aid them in
obstructive measures they would allow
the voting to begin. They thought it
possible that some of the Democrats
who would aid in filibustering if neces
sary to defeat the bill, might, atter
sleeping over it, feel disposad to change
Text of the Vnorhees Bill.
"Washington, Oct. 24. There are 27
amendments to the repeal bill which
have been introduced in tho senate as
"intended to be offered." It is gener
ally believed that a very large percent
age of them will be ottered. Upon this
contingency will depend the tjtne of the
disposal of the bill after Unvoting is
begun. Following, is the full -text of the
Voorhees bill, whfih wilrbe inbstitnted
in the senate:
That so much of the act approved July
14, 1890, entitled "An act directing the
purchase of silver bullion and issue of
treasury notes thereupon, and for other
purposes" as directs the secretary of the
treasury to purchase from time to time
silver bullion to the aggregate amount of
4,500,000 ounces or bo much thereof as may
be offered in each month at the market
price thereof, not exceeding one dollar for
371 25-100 grains of pure silver, and to is
sue iu payment for such pin chases treas
ury notes of the United States, be, and the
same is hereby repealed, and it is hereby de
clared to be the policy of the United States
to continue both gold and silver as
standard money, and to coin both gold
and silver money of equal intrinsic and
exchangeable value, such equality to be
secured through international agreement
or by such safenuards of legislation as
trill insure the maintenance of the parity
in value of the coins of the two metals,
and the equality of every dollar at all
times in the markets and in the payment
It is hereby further declared that the
efTorts of the government should be stead
ily directed to the establishment of such a
safe system of bimetallism as will main
tain at all times the equal power of every
dollar coined, or issued by the United
States, and in the market and in the pay
ment of debts.
In the Senate.
Washington, Oct. 24. Whilo the
recess of the senate expired at 10:30 a.
m., it was 15 minutes later before any
business was transacted, as the last
Benator necessary to make a quorum did
not appear until 10:43 a. m. After
some routine business Mr. Stewart of
Nevada resumed his speech againt the
repeal bill. He said that ho had found
that where the slavery agitation was
most violent, the human intellect was
most active, and that in Kansas and
Missouri there was a much higher
average of intelligence and a broader
grasp of public questions than in any
other part of the country. With this
preface, Mr. Stewart read a letter from
a gentleman in Missouri sustaining his
side of the silver question.
Mr. Stewart then directed himself to
what he called the charges that those
who opposed the pending bill were
thwarting the will of the majority. This
he denied. Who were the filibusters, he
asked. The administration had filibus
tered for 25 years against legislation al
lowing the will of the majority to be ex
pressed. They had used the most cor
rupt, the most aggressive, the most out
rageous means, secret at first, public
now, to enslave the majority. "Let the
administration take off its hands and let
the majority express itself in the sen
ate," said Mr. Stewart, "and we have
nearly two to one."'
The absence of a quorum was sug
gested by Mr. Power. A roll call de
veloped a quorum, and Mr. Kyle of
South Dakota then moved when the
senato adjourns it will be to meet at 12
o'clock tomorrow. By 12 yeas and 41
nays the motion as lost.
The senate bill authorizing the Chatta
aoog i and Western Railway company
to construct a bridge across the Tennes
see was taken from the calendar. Mr.
Stewart thtn resumed, and at 1:30,
without concluding his spesch, yielded
the floar and Mr. Jones of Nevada re
sumed his argument against the bill.
Coltapte of the Compromise.
Washington, Oct. 54. There was a
serious misunderstanding, says a morn
ing paper, to the collapse of the com
promise. The members of the caucus
committee who had charge of the com
promise insist that they did not iu any
way misrepresent the state of fee'.iag
they found at the treasury department i
when they visited Mr. Cailisle, and, thaJ
his conversation led them to beliWe
they would be perfectly justified in de
claring that the president would ap
prove the proposition. Secretary Cai
lisle, on the other hand, contends that
he did not give any assurances what
ever, but simply agreed to lay tho propo
sition before the president. Tho mem
bers of the committee xuisuuderstood
him and this assumption will make
plain some things that could not be re
conciled on Friday and Saturday. On
those days, when the members of tho
caucus committee were arguing with
senators and trying to bring them
around to support the compromise on
the ground that it would be acceptable
to the administration, newspaper cor
respondents and others who saw Mr.
Carlisle and other mombors of the cabi
net were nnablo to get any confirmation
of tho renorts that the president ap

Banking Committee Hearing
Washington, Oct. 24 Mr. McLaurin
of South Carolina, before tho banking
committee, spoke in referenco to the
clearing house certificates issued by the.
banks of Columbia, S. C, upon which a
10 per cent tax had been threatenod.
He read a telegram showing that 33,-'
000 had been issued payable Jan. 1, 1S94j.
Discussion turned as to whether the tai.
should be paid by tho association issuing
the certificates or by all who circulatod
thorn. Tliero was a vast difference of
opinion in tho committeo which led to a
hot argument among tho members.
Messrs. Springer, Warner and Hall
claimed the tax must be paid every
time tho note i passed. Mr. Brosius
combatted this idea. Mr. McLaurin
said that it was a matter of doubt. The
sentiment of the committee is in favor
of an immediato report on the bill. ;ilr;
Turpin of Alabama was heard in favor
of his bill to allow the national banks to
loan money on real estate.
Officials of the Broken Madison
Bank Give Bonds.
New York, Oct. 24. Tho police are
still hunting up the directors of tlio
Madison Square bank, who -are under
charges of mismanagement. Simon Ot
tenberg, one of the directors, waar
rested at the office of his cigar manu
factory on a bench warrant issued by
Judge Martine in the court of geiteral
sessions. He was bronght down to the
district attorney's office, where ho is
held, pending tho arrival of bondsnon,
and failing the giving of bail.
President Joseph E. Blant of the
ison Square bank was taken into cus
and later taken to the district attorney's
ornce. ane district a 3v's &fficnr;
wages be regularly
on the -0th of each succeeding
month. The committee informed the
officials that this was the ultimatum of
-j the order, and if not complied with bv
the company a general stiike of all the
employes, operators, etc., wold be or
dered on the Chicago, East, Middle,
West, South, Panhandle, New Mexico
and Rio Grando divisions.
Last month's wages were about a
month delayed and the merchants hert
refused to give the men credit for over
one month, so a delay in payment is a
very sorious thing for them.
The men at Argentino held a meeting
and adopted a resolution calling upon
the road to pay the men there by 0
o'clock Monday night, and said they
would strike if the company failed.
General Manager Frye telegraphed a
roply to the master mechanic of tho
Santa Fe at Argentino, and directed
him to read it to the men. This letter
has been wired to all general and di
vision superintendents of the system.
Tho letter referred to is very lengthy,
and asks conciliation. It says that tem
porary shrinkage in receipts, and the
impossibility of obtaining bank accom
modations has made it simply impos
sible to not inconvenience some.
The men at Argontino hold another
meeting and discussed tho situation.
Several were in favor of going out im
mediately, but it was finally decided to
appoint a grievance committee to go to
Topeka and talk over the matters with
the railway officials.

Batti.h Creek. Mich.. Oct. 24. A
6ad mistake has occurred in tho identifi
cation of bodies taken from tho wreck
here. Dr. Sweetlaud of Edwardsburg,
Mich , editor of Tho Argus, identified
the body of one of tho victims as that of
his sister. Mrs. Eveline Aldrich of Ed
wardsburg, and tho body was shipped
to that place. The coroner has just re
ceived a dispatch from J. D. Wood of
Cato, N. Y., stating tho body i3 that of
his wifo. She was identified by
both men by her clothing. Mr. Wood
asserts that ho has positive proof that
tho body is that of his wife, and Dr.
Sweetland is just as positive that they
are his sister's remains. Coroner Gil

to Dr. Sweetland, and Deputy Sheriff
King has been sent to bring back the

a return to the old methods of hustling
for business will tend to demoralize
rates and a heavy loss of revenue. The
Atchison has declared it will withdraw
from the Western Passenger association
if the Union Pacific interferes with ex
isting ratos west of the Missouri river,
bui that it will remain in membership
until that condition prevails. It will
not withdraw simply because tho Union
Pacific has gone out.
The Union Pacific has doclined to take
off its rate of 03..10 from tho Missouri
to tho Pacific coast. The Soo line
offered to take off its reduced rate, pro
viding the Southern Transcontinental
lines would do likowise. The Union
Pacific declares its rato is in to stay
until spring at least.

RESCUED ON THE DESERT.
Frightful Experience of Two I'rojpeoter
In Western Arizona,
San Diego, Oct. 24. John Pulzer, a
young miner, and Oonrad Limerick, an
old German, were rescued on the desert
between hero and Yuma by Joseph A.
Allison and T. H. Silsbv of this city
after a frightful experienco in which
the party nearly died of thirst. Neither
of the men were used to traveling and
took few of the precautions customary
with old prospectors. When found
Pulzer had been without wter three
days. He had dug a well six feet deep
for water, but without success and
crazed with delirium, he had lain down
to die. His companion, whose strength
failed some miles back, had crawled
under a mesquite bush and recovered
strength sufficient so that he had next
day gone back over the trail to a brack
ish pool, where ho remained ir reach of
water. The men are now at Allison's
ranch on the border of the desert, where
thev are fast recovering.

Guthrie, O. T., Oct. 24. It was ru
mored here that the Dalton gang would
raid this town soon, and that they were
camped 17 miles east of here. No im

but the fact that a posse of 1 marshals
left hero is true. No information can
be obtained from the marshal's office,
but it is thought that the posse went
after the Dalton gang.

Paris, Tex., Oct. 24. Thero is no

practically of his own make and will
undoubtedly do as he bids. It declares

Sin. Anna Bell lias Sued Kz-Gorernor
Foster and Others.
Cleveland, Oct. 24 .A special from
Tiffin, O., says that suit was begun
there by Mrs. Anna Bell of Foatoria,
one of the creditors of ex-Governor Fos
ter to enjoin the transfer of certain pro
perty, real and personal. Seventeen de
fendants are named, the principal ones
being ex-Governor Foster, John E.
Wilkinson, Charlea Olmstead and Mrs.
Laura Foster, mother of the ex-governor,
all of whom were parties in the
banking firm of roster cc Co. It is
alleged in the petition that the firm was
known to be insolvent two years ago,
that in October 1S33, Charles Foster
deeded his homestead and other real
property to his mother, who in turn
deeded it to his wife, but tho deeds were
not recorded until the day of the assign
ment, May 25, 1S9:; that on March 21,
1893, Charles Foster and wife deeded
$110,000 worth of property to William
L. Harkness, a creditor, but the deeds
were not reconled until after the assign
ment. It is further alleged that Charles
Olmstead and John E. Wilkinson also
transferred certain real and personal
property on the day of the assignment.
Temporary injunctions were granted
restraining all the defendants from
transferring or disposing of any of the
property in question.
Headed Toward Uenrer.
St. Paul, Oct. 24. The Groat North
ern has inaugurated a daily passenger
train service on its new branch between
Sioux Falls and Yankton, a distance of
7fi viiles. Rumors as to the Great
Northern's ultimate aim in this direction
are plentiful, but the most general and
feasible it that the line will eventually
be projected to Denver. Should this
branch recei-re this possiblo extension, it
would make an air line to Denver. One
of tho principal effects of such a line
would be to give the corn traffic a more
direct route to tho seaboard via the

How Sugar 3lclt.
If wo drop a lump of sugar into a cup
of tea, we find it takes a considerable
time to melt i.f allowed to remain at the
bottom of tho vessel, bnt if wo hold it
up in the spoon near tho em-fact? of tho
liquid it dissolves much more speedily.
This is owing to the sugar, as it melts,
rendering the portion of the tea con
taining it heavier. The sweetened part,
therefore, descends, leaving the .sugar
constantly in contact with unsweetened
or only partially sweetened tea, in fact,
a continual circulation of fluid is pro
moted until the wholo is dissolved.
When the sugar is placed or permitted
to lie at the bottom of tho cup, it dis
solves until tho layer of lluid next it is
thoroughly sweetened or saturated, when
it practically ceiibes to dissolve any fur
ther, the sweetened and heavier stratum
above it acting for u considerable time,
until the law of diffusion comes grad- .
ually into play, like an impervious cov
ering in keeping back tho lighter un
sweetened fluid above.
Hence the reason also why stirring, in
