Wasuisgtox, Oct 0 1 U'ben thoaeo
ate met to-day Mr. Harris of Tenhev
see, replied in caustic terms to a reso
lution from the Memphis Merchant
exchange, which, he said, criticised
in terms more or lesa severe ht col
league (Mr. Bate) and himself and
charged dereliction of duty in oppos
ing repeal. He said that he believed
he knew his own duty better than tiiey
Mr. Wolcott took the floor to apeak
on tbe resolution directing1 the com
mittee on finance to report a bill em
bodying the declaration of policy con
tained in te Voorhees substitute.
Mr. Wolcott criticised severely the
letter of the president to Governor
Northen of Georgia, which he charac
terized as one of the most remarkable
f ronunciamentos of this generation,
le also spoke of extraordinary ac
tivity of the administration to force
individual views on congress and con
demned the action of the secretary of
tbe treasury in failing to purchase the
amount of silver required by law,
Mr. Voorhees replied at great length
and with some feeling.
The repeal bill ivai then taken up
and HenatorCockrell of Missouri, ad
dressed the senate against uncondl
The Democratic senators took advan
tage of the (Sunday quiet to hold a
conference at the cupitol yesterday for
the purpose, if possible, of agreeing
upon a course with reference to the
repeal bilL It is known that no
agreement was reached and the dis
covery was made again that it would
be very difficult to reach an under
standing. It also appeared that the
party in the senate was almost evenly
divided upon the question of uncon
ditional repeal, tweutv-one being
favorably thereto and twenty-four
Should the senate dispose of the
silver problem this week everything
else would be laid aside in the house
to act upon it The sen ti meat in the
house is very strong that a compro
mise will be the result, but if that
compromise should carry with it a
provision for a bond htsue, it would
encounter most bitter and formidable
opposition. Indeed tbe Democratic
leaders there do not hesitate, to give
it as their opinion that a proposition
for a bond issue could never be passed
in the lower branch of congress.
Secretary Carlisle was at the capitol
Saturday and held a long conference
with Democratic senators. It was at
first reported that he was figuring on
a compromise, but later Senators
Vance and Voorhees and Mr. Carlisle
himself declared that the administra
tion hud no compromise to ort'er, but
that the repeal fight would continue
indefinitely without any recess of the
Mr. Martin of Kansas gavo notice

STILL ON ELECTIONS REPEAL.
Western Member I'sy Their Compli
ments to Cliicugo aud Now York.
Washington, Oct. 01. Mr. Aldriuh,
the representative from Chicago,
opened the debate in the house on the
elections bill this morning with a
vigorous defense of the Republican
attempt to check the "Democratic
frauds" in that great city and put
down the alleged "Carter Harrison
Mr. Dolliver of Iowa followed in the
same strain. The repeal of the elec
tion laws, he said, placed the govern
ment in the attitude of disowning the
men who defended its life and of leav
ing them without civil rights except
by the grace of state laws, invented to
destroy their right of suffrage. He
then made a vigorous attack on Tam
many, an organization which, he said,
lived upon tithes exacted from the
vices, the misfortunes and contracts of
the great American city.
QMr. Itoutclle of Maine, after deliv
ering a glowing apostrophe to New
England, in Which he made some sar
castic allusions to Dr. Kverctt of Mas
sachusetts, was about to read an ex
tract from James ltussell Lowell,
which he said described the dough
face of IH-il and enabled him to throw
upon the sceue of the house a photo
graph of the dough face of 1S'.3. Sud
denly Mr. Springer took exception
against applying the epithet "dough
face" to a member of the house,
"It ta an epithet," returned Mr.
llouti'lle dcSautly, "which can be ap
plied with equal force as well to the
gentleman from Illinois a the gentle
man from Maine."
Mr. Springer's face grew white with
rage as he cried: "Do I umlemtand
you to say that you applied tlut epi
thet to me?"
"You tindersto.nl it n well yow
are capable of understanding any
thing." retorted Mr. Houtelle.
"I want you to know, air," replied
Mr. Springer, striding toward hU ad
vftary with tiro In hU eye, "that you
dare not apply auclt an epithet to me,"
"Mr, Speaker, the grntlnmau from
Illlnloa eauitol be ltterUui'Ul In me

replied Mr, lUmtellev "Hut I with

erable excitement in tow n Monday and
an undercurrent of strong feeling ex
ited ou both sides, yet everything is
quiet now and no trouble is antici
pated. The dispatch of yesterday went
too far in describing condition Satur
day night and did the town and Cun

possibility of a riot either time. Scott

I Nkw York. Oct. 0L In just the
j weather the British desired the
Mltgant beat the alkyrie to-day in
the second of the America's cup
races and now there is not a person in
New York who believes that the
British yacht lias a ghost of a chance
to carry the trophy back to England,
from which it came forty-two years
The Vigilant started in the rear but
beat its English rival by over three
minute to the first stake boat, in
creased this to six. minutes at the sec
ond stake boat and passed the finish
line at 2:50 o'clock while the Valkyrie
passed tho line at S;0i' over two
and one-half miles.beulnd.
The victory of tbe American ya-ht
wan-conceded on all hands to have
been a most decisive one and when
she- went over the line, there was a
wild acene of enthusiasm. The finish
was witnessed by probably 30,000 peo
ple. The a rt to-day was from Sandy
Hook lightship, over a triangular
course, ten miles to a leg.
At 10 o'clock a heavy mist crept
along th shores of Long Island and
the breeze was very light. Half an
hour later, however, the fog had
again cleared away and the wind had
freshened to sixteen miles at) hour.
When the Valkyrio appeared it was
aeen that Lady Dunravea wa on
board to cheer the sailors
The wind increased ateadily hour by
hour and whea the preparatory gun
was fired, it was blowing eighteen
miles an hour.
At 11:20 the signal was ftlven and
five minutes later the Valkyrie crossed
the line followed in about five seconds
by her American rival. The Vlligant
took In one of her sails and soon the)
Valkyrie was four length ahead.
At 11:40 o'clock, the wind had fresh
ened to a twenty mile breeze and the
Valkyrie was more than holding her
lead. Twenty minutes later, how
ever, the Vigilant was closing up on
her rival inch by inch and at l'.:10 the
two appeared to bo on about even
Ten minutes later tho Vigilant wu
on eighth of a mile ahead and was
able to take in her jib too-sail. The
flagship May was just astern of the
Vigilant and the gallant work of the
American was cheered tiguln and
airaln, especially as the KuglUhmen,
had claimed that the better the wind
the better tho Valkyrie's tliauccs, but
the Vigilant was beating her on the
wind as badly as oa Saturday,
At 1:09 o'clock the Vigilant rounded
the first stake boat nent ly a mile
ahead of the Valkyrio. The gale was
then so keen that the great spinnaker
on the American bout wa furled.
Three minutes and fifteen seconds
later, the Valkyrie also rounded the
A few moments later the Vigilant
was fairly flying on the dead run to
leeward on tho second leg, apparently
increasing the gap that separated her
from her rival Tho VIgllant's tlmo
on the first leg was 1 hour and 44
minutes; tho Valkyrie's 1:47.15. This
was doing very well indeed, as the
vessels in tacking had to travel nearly
double the length of tho coursa of tea
The Vigilant roundod the mark on
the second leg at 2 o'clock, 'having
covered the second and third af the
coursa in SI minutes and was leading
for home. Six minutes later the Val
kyrio also rounded the second stake.

Pbovidkni'Kj It. L, Oct 01. A big
strike in tho woolen mills at Olney-
ville was inaugurated this morning.
Probably 0,000 people are ouS of work
and the strike is growing rapidly.
Before it stops, unless all signs fail,
every manufacturing establishment in
this state will bo closed and there is
talk of the cotton-workers joining in.
There had been discontent ever
since a notice was posted in, the mills
last week of a reduction in wages.
Several meetings of the operators was
held and speeches of a nature to pre
cipitato a strike were made by labor
agitators. It was resolved to, wait
until this morning when it was. under
stood the scale of prices was to- ba
posted, before taking definite action.
I he price list was posted this morn
ing. The weavers in, tbe- taft and
weeding mills held a -convention its
the work room, which resulted La
their leaving their loom.
As soon as the weavers want out a
cry was raised: "Let us go to Fletch
er s mills" and the crowd marched to
tbe National Worst mills. Her
they stationed themselves in front.
shouting "Come out." and the weav
ers promptly left their looms.
I he strikers then went to the other
mills, bringing out tbe men employed
on the mills of Cbarlea Fletcher. The
