THE DEMOCIUTS QUIT-
They Hava Laid Dowa On the Great
FIGHT ON THE EEPEAX 19 DB0PPED.
Senator Kairia So Informs the Free Coin
age Republicans on Behalf of His
Washington, Oct 25. At 13:30
d'cloek to-day Senator Harris, acting
for the ailver Democrats, informed
the silver Republicans that the Demo
crats had concluded that, after taking
all the circumstances into considera
tion, 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 soon be reached, and the re
sult will be in aecordance with the
wishes of the president and the repeal
forces in the senate, for it is under
stood that the silver Eepublicans will
not undertake to prolong the fight be
yond the time necessary to complete
their speeches, and will after that per
mit the voting to begin upon amend
ments to the bilL It is generally be
lieved that this will take place before
the end of the present week.
Senators Cockrell, Vest, Harris and
Walthall were among those present
at the conference which resulted In
the Harris announcemen t.
Senator Dubois of Idaho, who took a
leading part in arranging for the con
tinuation of the fight against uncon
ditional repeal, said this afternoon
that a vote would come probably
within a week, as there would be no
opposition or attempt at filibustering.
"The speeches which have begun
will be finished," said he, "and such
other speeches as senators may desire
to deliver. It is understood that Mr.
Teller has something yet to say,
and Senators Stewart and Jones
desire to conclude their speech
es. Senator , Allen also desires
to make some further remarks.
Yesterday leaders of the Democratic
party said they would stand by us if
we could continue the fight Senator
Harris and others declared that it was
their determination to prevent a vote
from being taken, even if methods not
yet invoked should yet be used.
With this understanding we de
clared our intention of keeping up
the fight. This morning Senator
Harris gave the same assurance,
but an hour later he came to me and
said he felt it his duty, after the as
surances he had given, that he should
inform me that he would not continue
the fight as suggested, but would
yield to the pressure of associates on
the Democratic side. He said
he spoke for the silver men on
that side. I told him if we could
no longer depend upon the friends of
silver on the Democratic side that we
could no longer keep up the contest
and that a vote might be taken after
the debate had closed, but that there
would be no more obstruction. The
silver men will offer amendments and
debate them and will probably rote
for all the amendments which promise
anything for silver. It is impossible
to say when a vote will be taken, but
' should think within a week."
It in believed now that it maybe
possible to begin voting upon the
amendments to the bill by Thursday,
as it (coins probable that speech mak
ing will be concluded by to-morrow
evening. There are twenty-seven of
those amendments and it is possible
there will be rore or less debate on
tier the fire minute rulo. It is gener
ally agreed, however, that the vote
on the bill itself ran be reached by the
close of the week.

LINCOLN, NEB., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1893.
SESATOKS EXCUAXOB VIEWS.
Though the senate was called to or
der half an hour later than usual this
morning there was the usual want of
af uorutn when the vice president's
guel felL The time spent in obtain
ing the necessary forty-three aenators
was devoted to the exchange of views.
There were many little groups of two
and three each scattered about the
chamber. While these exchanges were
taking place in the senate chamber
the cloak rooms were also the scene of
The talk all had reference to the
situation in the senate. Some of it
was devoted to the developments of
yerterday with reference to the main
question. A portion of it had refer
ence to the advisability of bringing
up the closure resolution. Mr. Pal mer
said that be thought that no effort
would be made to secure a vote until
after Teller, Jones and Stewart should
have concluded their speeches. Mr.
Voorhees also said that he thought he
would for the present ask the senate to
continue its recess program, which
would seem to mean that he did not
think the time yet ripe for further
discussion of the rules.
Some of the silver senators did not,
early this morning, appear so confi
dent of being able to keep up their
fight as they were when the senate
took a recess last night The Repub
licans said their course in this matter
would depend entirely open the
Democratic silver senator They had
said from the beginning that when
ever the Democrats should refuse to
aid them in obstructive measures they
would allow the voting to begin.
Senator Kyle made a canvass of the
Democratic anti-repealers before the
day's session was very old and an
nounced to his Republican and Popu
list co-workers that the Democrats
were determined as ever. He said
that ten Democrats could be counted
upon to stay with them to the last
Half an hour after the conversation
he had moved to adjourn until a
stated time to-morrow and it looked
as if filibustering had begun in ear
nest. TRB PRESIDENT'S REAL POSITION.
For a time agreements went flying
to the winds but these were all upset
by the emphasized announcement of
the president's position, made, it has
been learned, sby First Assistant Post
master General Jones.
So convincing apparently, was the
representation of the compromisers,
that the president was prepared to
give the silver men the few months of
delay proposed that such staunch
administration men as Palmer, Gray
of Delaware and White of Louisiana
attached their signatures to the com
promise measure and only seven on
the Democratic side Hill, Caftrey,
Vilas, McPherson, Mills, Mitchell and
Voorhees stood out.
The repeal senators who had signed
were very much surprised to find that
the administration had never given
any sort of an approval to the scheme,
would not do so under any circum
stances and was as unalterably op
posed to compromise of all kinds as
on the first day congress met They
declared that they had been made the
victims of ' misrepresentation and
several of them withdrew their names
from the petition, claiming that they
had put them there with the express
understanding that the administration
would be satisfied with the proposition
measure if it did not in fact desire It
The proposed change of the rules
now assumes the importance it tem
porarily lost pending the preparation
of a compromise measure. Mr. iiill,
who delivered a speech last night in
Brooklyn, said before his departure:
"I have never wavered for an instant
in my conviction that my closure res
olution could be put through if the
so-called repealers had sufficient back
bone to give it their solid support
The compromise plan which I nave
not signed and will not sign has
blocked the way for the consideration
of closure because many senators who,
in my opinion, would have favored
closure are inclined to await the pos
sible settlement of the question rather
than pledge themselves to a radical
Kenator Caffery Is equally out
spoken. "This fight," he said to-day,
"has assumed an Importance far
freater than the quektlon of coinage.
I has been turned into a MoclalUtle
attack on the constitution, as the
right of the majority to rule has been
denied; and I, for one, do not propone
to agree to anr surrender. This con
gress is opposed to silver purcha.es
and the fight should be fought out un
til the right of the majority shall be
vindicate!. I would be in favor of
keeping up the fight on this line far

Osceola, Neb., Oct 21 The Osce
ola White Caps who whipped two
girls Saturday whom they supposed
to be of bad character were arraigned
yesterday and pleaded not guilty. The
case was continued till November SO,
in recognizance of 73 each. They
were charged with unlawful incendi
ary talk and riot Those under arrest
are W. Gierhart Mrs. Heald, two Mra
O'Hornes, Mrs. Everett Allen Osborne
and three boys named M borne
and Brown. The ladies t some
time subpected the two yot. rls of
moral looseness and set a trat, catch
them. Saturday evening they sent
three boys to tell the girls that two
traveling men were waiting for them,
in an alley.
' The girls hurried out to meet the
supposedly anxious traveling men, but
instead they fell into an ambuscade
which had been formed by the ladies
and the two men and three boys now
under arrest Tho girls were quickly
stripped of their clothes ad pulled
into a shed, where it was the inten
tion to tar and feather them. One of
the girls, however, fainted during the
scrimmage, and the other managed to
make her escape.
Mra Heald, one of the prisoners, is
the wife of the president of the bank
of Polk county, a leader in an Osceola
church and of several societies, and
the other ladies are wives of promi
nent business men. All are members

Temperance Unions Do Not Appiove
Method of Nebraska Women.
Chic a oo, Oct 23. The local
Woman's Christian Temperance union
women do not exactly approve of the
alleged methods employed by their
sisters of Osceola, Neb , who, in order
to dissuade a number of young girls
from the worldly practice of meeting
young men, are said to have lured the
girls by means of fictitious notes to a
secluded place and beaten them un
mercifully. "It is decidedly not a thing which
the Woman's Christian Temperance
union approves of," said Mra Wood
bridge, national secretary of the
Woman's Christian Temperance
union. "There may have been some
Woman's Christian Temperance union
women who were so foolish as to act
in the manner stated, bnt that is not
the fanlt of the organization. We try,
