Washington, Oct. 31. Public inter
est was transferred to the house end of
the capitol, where it was expected that
the last act in the great financial drama
that has been riveting the attention of
the country on Washington for three
months past, would be enacted.
But the crowds which surged into the
galleries wero doomed to disappoint
ineut. The silver men bad Uiacovorea a
parliamentary obstacle which would de-
lay the doom of the white metal for i-4
hours. Fully 250 members wero pres
ent when Spaakar Crisp dropped tlie
cavel. but not one-fifth of them knew
of the sudden change in the situa
tion. After tho reading of the journal,
Mr. Cummings secured unanimous con-
EOiit for consideration of the senate
resolution, transferring tho modsl of
the battle ship Illinois at the World's
fair to the city of Chicago. Without
opposition it was agreed to.
At i':ov) p. m., wnila JSir. U.ites was
speaking, Mr. Cox of North Carolina,
mo secretary ot me senate, came in
bearing in his arms the icpeal bill.
Gen. B. Smith tho assistant doorkeeper
escorted Mr. Cox down tho center aisle,
The speaker rapped for order.
"The gentleman from Alabama," said
the speaker, "will suspend a moment,
while the house receives a massage from
All eyes wero turned towards the two
figures in the two aisles. "I am directed
by the senate.'' said Mr. C;:x, his words
racing nnd tumbling after each other,
"to inform the house that the senate has
passed an act to repeal a part of an act
approved July 14, 1890. entitled, an act
directing the purchase of silver bullion,
and for other purposes, with an amend
ment, to which I am directed to ask the
concurrence of the house."
Clerk Cox bowed solemnly. Mr.
Fitch, standing in the area in front of
the sp; aker's chair, applauded vigorous
ly, but the demonstration was not taken
up, and Mr. Fitch's applause died away
amid the laughter that swept over tho
floor and galleries. Tho reception of
tho silver bill had hardly created a
Quietly the house went bask to rou
tine business. At 1:30, when tho morn
ing hour expire 1, Mr. Livingstone of
Georgia created some excitement by an
attempt to seenre unanimous consent to
prrceed with the consideration of 4be
repeal bill. H;s proposition was that
the house aprre to consider tho bill for
tbe.reuiainder of tronftornoon- jinfl to
morrow until o o clock when the prev
ious question bo considered as ordered
on the bill and pending amendments.
Mr. Bland made a vehement protest and
sa:d the bill should take its cours like
any other bill and como up regularly
rtiuler the rules.
"Many members want to be heard
and I for one object."
Aim ro tue nrst attempt to reach an
agreement in Ihe house failed.
The Hamburger Nachrichten, in an
article which tho best informed people
insist is at least instigated by Prince
Bismarck, accounts for the Russian re-,

Mr. O'Connor's letter, tho English

for instance, r ferring to Mr. O'Connor's

with the aid' of the Irish votes. Contin-

World's Fair Grounds. Chicago,
Oct. 31. Visitors to tho fair grounds
today only made a dot hra and there
on the aven-.es which contributed their
dust for the wind to play with as
it likes. Tiio sprinklers were tho first
to go. There was a slim attendance to
day as compared with yesterday. Tho
sudden failing off is marked and com
mented en as a little strange. True-tho
fair closed officia ly yeste day. but the
buildings and exhibits are still to be
looked at, and no one is forbidden the
grounds who has the p-.ce of admission
and is willing to tcr.dr it. Tho street
cars and other transportation have not
hauld a car load to the grounds. People
will be coming to the fair for perhaps
two more weeks, and while the ex iib 's
wi'l be moving outward, the cfli -ials
promise that the comforts of the visitors
will be studio 1. There will ba no con
fusion. All things will be orderly, and
boxes and wagons will move by a sys
tem. But there will be no mora
illumination of tho grounds and the
gates will closa at b o clock each even-1
ing. The grounds will b9 in darkness
at that hour. Th? Midway which was
willing to linger a while, will have to seel:
Horace Tucker's well dressed and affa
ble gate keepers are looking for employ
ment. All but 20 of them were dropped
and the guard-s who are to be retained
for a couple of months 3et will do duty
on the gates. t
Same of the exhibitors will go direct
to tho Midwinter fair at San Francisco.
A number of tho Plaisance attractions
are going there. May others are going
to tho Augusta exposition, at Angusta,
Ga., which opens Nov. 14 and contin
ues until Dec. 14.
The managers of the last named ex
position have arranged
5100 musicians sratio.ie.l oa the givat
jteps of the La S:Y.o i-treet entrance to
tho city hill. In an instant tho
multitude which filled tho streuti as far
as tho 03-0 could rench became even
more qniet if p -ssibla than during tho
minutes preceding. As if by inspiration
coming to all the members of that vast
concourse at tin same instant men
lifted their hats and s o.nl with un
covered hea !s awaiting tho arrival of
tho pcopla'-s doad. Men. women and
children wero packed into that vast
multitude and all stool as though
carved from stone. A moment later
when tho casket was uncovered to tho
"eyes of tho people sobs wero heard
on every hand. A simplo wreath
of laurel lay closo to the
.gate through which hundreds of thous
ands were s on to look at the face of the
dead executive". As soon as the casket
was borne in aud placed on the cata

Seattle. Wash., Oct. 31. Thirty
three indictments against ex-Treasurer
Adolph Krng and his associates have
been returned by the grand jury as true
bills. Henry Furhman, a rich broker,
is made accessory, which under the law
of the state is tho same as tho principal.
Fred W. Lander and L. H. Griffith are
jointly indicted with him oa one count
each, and D. T. Denny, tho well known
pioneer, on two counts, and L, D. Ross,
the real estate agent, on three counts.
Furhman repaid the money ho bor
rowed from Krng, and as bondsman put
up $.'J3,0OD to mako up the deficit.
Griffith and Lander also raised consid
erable sums to reimburse the city,
hoping thereby to escape indictment.
Krng's shortage was $12.1.000, but it was
all made good by his friends.

shabbily but neatly dressed, with a pale
faco and a small black mustache The

out of the office with the detectivo. In

A recent improvement in photography
enables the artist to overcome to a con
siderable extt-nt tho difficulty of preserv
ing the natural expression of the sitter
during the necessary period of exposure.
It seems that, notwithstanding this pe
riod has been greatly shortened in vari
ous ways, particularly by the adoption
to such an extent of the magnesium light,
with its unique advantages, nervousness
is so prevalent among those who ait be
fore tho camera that tho operator has
still found the interval too prolonged for
the perfect accomplishment of his work.
Herr Haag of Stuttgart claims to meet
and overcome the trouble in question by
means of a change in tho management
of the magnesium light, making- for this
purpose what are called lightning car
tridges, which cause a tremendous de
velopment of luminosity and are set
alight in one-tenth of a second by means
of electricity. Tho so called natural
photographs taken by this process aro
said to preserve the mental expression
and momentary play of the features with
extraordinary clearness and exactitude,
but the operation requires so much skill
and practice that it is said to be carried
on only by a single photographer in Ber
lin. Berlin Letter.
