There was a big crowd of people
around the Fifth Avenue hotel, Jew
v,t rlr in lha evening of the 6th
waiting to see Judge Thurman start for
the meeting at Madison Square,
judge stayed in his room so long
, wonder what
the matter. When he finally appeared
he seemed quite weak. He leaned
heavily upon Chairman Barnum and his
son Allen W., and trembled visibly. His
body seemed to lean to the right and his
right leg dragged a little, as if afflicted
with rheumatism He seemed too weak
or sick to make an effort to acknowledge
the vociferous cheering of the multi
tude. He was quickly helped into a
carriage with Messrs. Brioe, Barnum
and Allen W. Thurman and the start for
the garden was made. Carriages con
taining distinguished democrats fol
fowed. The sjiort trip to the gar.len
was a triumphal tour, the streets being
lined with applauding crowds.
MoiliKon Snnare '-Tardea held a mighty
swarm of people, aud when its holding
wmiieitr ubs exhausted it served as a
vnter to nmnv thousands who were ad
dressed by seakers upon stands at each
corner of the building. The interior of
i.e garden was profusely decorated with
Amtriean colors.
At 8 o'clock Calvin S. Price, chairman
of the national campaign committee,
called the lneetiiiL' to order and pre
sented Hon. KoscoeP. Flower who made
a short speech touching u.aiuly upon the
treasury surplus. While Flower was
still speaking the crowd near the Madi
son Square entrance begun to cheer,
drowning the voices of the speakers as
they announced the coining of Thurman.
As be made Iu'b way to the platform the
cheers were redoubled, bandanas were
waived and the band struck up "Hail to
the Chief Flower, who had not at
tempted to finish his speech, at once in
troduced Thurman, saying: "Fellow cit
izens, I have the honor to introduce
the old Iioman, Allen G. Thurman."
As Thurman stepped forward to the
speaker's stand and stood erect wiping
the perspi'dtiou from his face with his
famed bandana, the wildest enthnsiasm

Unanimous consent had len given yes
terday that at 1 o'clock the vote should
be taken on the question, ' Shall the
bill pass?" There being some questions
as to the terms of the agreement, the
reiH.rt in the Itecord was read. Mr.
Gorman excused himself pn the ground
that he was not present when the agree

The question was then telten on tlie
passage of the bill, and the result was
yeas 37, nays 3.
Mr. Blair asked the presiding officer
whether a motion to reconsider the vote
was in order, and on being informed
that it was, he submitted that motion.
He said that if it were reconsidered he
would move an amendment to tire bill,
providing that the act shall not take ef

and ther crowd cheered and cheered
again, drowning into mnffled sounds the
strcins of the band. The cheering con
tinued for fully five minutes and then in
a voice so feeble that only those within
a few feet of him could tell except by
the motion of his liw that he was speak
ing, he said:
"Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentle
men: It has been said by the republi
can papers since 1 was nominated for
the vice presidency that Allen O. Thur
man is an old, frail, decrepit and broken
down man. l do not know that i should
reply to this, although I well know that
on siieh reiertion.
Mr. Gorman referred to his motion to
comjnit the bill, and said that he had
made that motion in consideration that
the bill had come before the senate,
without doubt, under misapprehension.
Mr. Stewart opjiosed the motion to re
consider, anil said the more he read
Denby's dispatches the more he felt that
the bill was proper.
Mr. Blair advocated his motion. He
argued that the treaty would, if ratified
by China, afford all the remedy which
the bill was designed to give. Unless

all saw that the hero of the evening was !4(Jj re8ulted veiis 24, nays 11; no quo
trying to speak to them but was ites.uo I nln?. A call of the senate having shown
troy the treaty, a delay of sixty days
ought to be satisfactory to everybody.
So far as was known the Chinese gov
ernment was acting in good faith.
At the close of the discussion Mr. Tel
ler moved to lay on the table Mr. Blair's
motion to reconsider. A vote was taken
to do so. Colonel Brice ami Flower
stepped forward and each taking an arm
assisted him back from the speakers'
stand. Ho was almost fainting and for
a few minutes was too sick to be re
moved from the bnilding. When ho
had recovered sufficiently Judge Thur
man was taken in a carriage direct to
the ladies' entrance of the Fifth Avenue
hotel, accompanied by Messrs. Brice
and Barnum and his son Allen W. Thnr
man. The judge was conducted to his
room and was attended by Dr. Goldth
waite, the hotel physician. The latter
applied remedies and later it was said
that the distinguished patient would be
all right in an hour or two.
Dr. Goldthwaite said that the judge
had been attacked with cholera morbus
at 3 o'clock in the afternoon and he had
advised his patient to not exert himself
by attending the meeting. But Judge
Thurman insisted upon going to Madi
son Square garden notwithstanding the
advice of his physician. Burnum came
out of Thnrman's apartments in a little
while and though hf? was seriously wor
ried announced that Thurman would be
all right in a couple of hours. In the
sick room remained Mr. Brice, Allen G.
Thurman, jr., and the physician.
