Washington, Aug. 29. Under the
impression that the order under which
the hoiHe had been operating: as to
the hour cf meeting still prevailed,
outsiders interested In the votes on
the silver propositions filled the publio
galleries before 10 o'clock and many
members were in their seats
at tthat hour. The practical
outcome of the votes to be
taken was conceded on all hands to be
the defeat of every proposition relat
ing to the free coinage of silver at any
of the agreed upon ratios and also of
the resolution reviving the Bland
Allison act of 1878. Even Mr. Bland,
the silver champion, admitted this and
he acknowledged that the estimate of
the anti-silver committee of a majority
of about fifty against apy of the sev
eral silver propositions Included with
in the order might even be exceeded.
Mr. Reed came in at 11:20 o'clock
and was particularly noticeable be
cause of his suit of Kentucky tow and
red four-ln-hand scarf. Bourke
Cockran did not appear until after the
speaker's gavel tell, but Messrs. liar
ter, Ray'nor and Tom Johnson, anti
silverltes, buzzed and beamed with
anticipations of victory.
When the speaker cabled for order
at noon nearly every scat on the floor
was filled, indicative of the unmis
takable evidence of the general inter
est in the matter in hand.
The resolution contained in the
rder of procedure on t liver ques
tion was reported by t clerk, pro
viding for a vote, first u 'ree coin
age of silver at the pi atio of
16 to 1.
Representative Bailey of
asked if, in the event of all the amend
ments included in the order being de
feated, it would be in order to propose
an additional amendment germane to
Speaker Crisp replied that as at
present advised he would answer no;
that the order provided exhaustively
all that the houso might consider; but
that when the time came to formally
present the question the gentleman
from Texaa might be heard.
Representative McMlliln desired to
offer an amendment providing for the
free coinage of the product of the
sliver mines of the United States, but
Mr. Bland objected to even having it
read, saying that such a proposition
was not free coinage at alL

ANTI-SILVER MKX JUBILANT.
The announcement of the vote npon
the amendment was received with ap-
(iiause ana some surprise at the ma
ority against free coinage, it being
nearly double tbe lartrest estimate
made by the anti-silver committee.
Mr. Bland, from a seat at the left of
the speaker smiled grimly as he heard
the result, nervously chewing and
rocking to and fro on his pivot chair.
The figures show that a majority of
tbe .Democrats voted against free coin
age. With tbe close of the roll call
the clerk announced a single pair-
specifying with great particularity
the side on winch the member
would have voted if present This is
a common custom fu tho senate but
very unusual in the house and indi
cated with what extreme care tbe
pairing contract was made. It i very
uncommon, also, to find so few mem
bers paired, and the roll call revealed
only eight absentees, who had not
provided to make their votes couut in
he total result
With tho wave of applause and
jubilation which swept over the hall
as the crushing defeat of free coinage
was announced the who e house
seemed to tako a deep breath and to
lose interest in what was to follow
for the next few votes. Them were
on the various ratios, hut every one
know that the ratio question was not
only dead but burled ten days ago.
Mr. Blnnd asked a yea and nay vote
on tho question of free coinage at the
ratio of 17 to and secured it. As
the clerk began calling the roll Mr,
Bryan walked down the center aisle,
calm and grave, around to whnro the
silver leaders sat. They sat in con
sultation some time and then Mr.
Bryan by ca7 stages, made hU way
back to his own seat
Tho 17 to 1 amendment was de
featedyeas 10(i, nays 2 10, On this
besides the loss of the Populist votes,
the members of that party withholding
their votes, there were several nega
tive votes from those who voted in
favor of a' ratio of 10 to 1.
The 18 to 1 amendment was rejected
by a vote of 10a to 230.
The 19 to 1 amendment was defeated
yeas 105, nays 237.
The 20 to 1 was rejected Yeas 119;
The Bland-Allison coinage act was
defeated, yeas 136, nays 210,
The Wlslon repeal bill was then
passed by a vote of 230 to 110.
Bl'he tirst of the ratio votes were
taken amid such a buzzing as fairly
drowned the voice of the clerk at
times, and the few members who wore
keeping tally on tho rest had to ap
peal to the speaker repeatedly to pre
serve enough order to make 'hearing
Only the "old stagers" on the silver
side stood out for the 17 to 1 ratio,
Man after man who had voted aye on
the first roll call voted no on the sec
ond and many others left the chamber.
The slight gain made on the higher
ratios was not unexpected by some of
the leaders and it was the published
impression of these that the ratio of
'.'0 to 1 would poll the largest vote re
corded in favor of free coinage.
When it came to the 18 to 1 amend
ment the chorus of dissatisfaction
whieli arose when Mr. Hatch insisted
on his demand for the yeas and nays
showed that the house was in no tem
per for childish delays. It was to bo
noted that Mr, Bland, to whom
this whole business is deadly
earnest and not mere torn foolery, did
not loin in the demand, but lay back
in nis sent, , snowing as much coin
poxim: as lie could eoinmand.
The vote on the second ratio amend
ment made a slightly bettor showing
for the silver men, not because of a
considerable increase In tlmlr vote,
but by a falling off In tbe number of
their adveraarles. By the time tbe
third vote was called Mr. Blaud had
recovered his wind enough to make
the demand for the yeas and nays
hlin-rlf, although he did not stay In
h's seat long enough to see now
things, were going. The anti-silver
men, sUo, whj had united the effort
to prevent further roll call, concluded
to let the thlpg go and put every body
on recurd on every phase of the ques
tion. 'I he third part aed tavote

THE 8ILVEE MEN WILL FIOHT IT.
Voothaes' Bill Bubstituud for the Wilson
tiiil National Bank Bill Side-tracked
thlier Congressional News,
Washinoton, Aug. 33. The senat
rommittee on finance this morning
decided to report back to the senate
tho Wilson repeal bill with the recom
mend etlim that the Voorhees bill
already on the senate calendar be
substituted for it Tbe committee
also resolved to set aside the national
bank circulation bill, which is now
unfinished business in the senate, in
favor of the Voorhees bill and to press
the latter measure as rapidly as the
temper of the senate will permit
" The difference between the lioune
bill and the Voorhees bill is found ia
the attachment to the latter of a para
graph declaring that it is the
policy of the United states to
use gold and silver as money
metals and to preserve parity.
The program of the commlttoo as
far as it contemplates the setting
aside of a national bank bill can only
'be carried out through the aid of a
tniijot !ty in the senate for the national
bank bill cannot bo withdrawn or set
asido save through a majority vote in
favor of the consideration of tbo re
peal bill The silver men in the sen
ate profess to be indifferent as to
which bill is considered by the senate,
holding that the bank bill is almost
as objectionable as the repeal bllL
The silver men say they will fight re
peal at every step.
In the senate Mr. Teller objected to
immediate consideration of the repeal
bill, and it went over until to-morrow.
The Stewart resolution inquiring into
the condition of the treasury was
taken up, but was referred to the
Mr Gordon then addressed the senate
in advocaey of tho unconditional re
peal of tho Sherman act lie declared
that he could not vote for any meas
ure that involved delay and that he
was therefore opposed to the substi
tute reported to-day.

jnr. nan iroai tne committee on
Indian affairs, reported a bill authoris
ing certain cnerokee allottees or
claimants to purchase the laud held
by them. lie explained that
under tho recent agreement
with the Cherokces seventy of
those Indians had occupied
and ii a. i unproved the land ceded In
the Cherokee outlet It had turned
out that more than seventy of them
had equities in the land and the bill
simply authorised the secretary of the
interior to allow such as had such
equitable rights to purchase the hold
inge (not .over eighty acres), paying
the same price therefor as white
people pay. The bill was passed.
A bill was reported from the judic
iary committee by Mr, Hill for the
repeal of the federal election law and
it has gone to the calendar.
Mr. J'eflVr then made a personal
statement oi tne cause of hi" cliango
of attitude in tue Leo Mantle case.

final -vote- in the Lee Mantle case to
be taken on the original resolution
as amended, and it was agreed to
yeas 9.', nays y.v.
The vote on the right of John B,
Allen of Washington, under the like
circumstances, was precisely the same
33 to 21). The result of tho vote is
that those senators are declared not
entitled to their seats.
The house bill to repeal the Sher
man act was reported to the senate at
B: 60 and was referred to the finance
committee, Mr. Voorhees stating that
there would be a meeting of that com
mittee to-morrow and that there would
