"Sllecia's" Stormy Passage.
'Ssdil Dispatch to The Bee.
NEW YORK , November 30,1 a. m.
The steamer "Silec'a , " of Hamburg ,
arrived at her pier yesterday morn
ing , after a seventeen uays * trip from
Havre. Her loz shows that shs en
countered very stormy weather , and
was many times threatened with de
struction. Terrific waves arose np
before her , through which she plung
ed , throwing off a volume of water
that swept her fore aft. It was ex
tremely dangerous on the bridge , and
the officers pursued their duties under
circumstances that called forth a con
stant display of courage. The worst
of the trip was on the 22d , when the
ship made only seventy-five miles.
The wind came from the north in a
hurricane , with tremendous seas. The
ship seemed like a feather , but be
haved admirably. At times when
the4waves struck her , spray flew up be
yond the topmasts. The cold was in
tense. This tempest continued all
through the next day , but at times
was not as severe. The ship increas
ed her speed to 115 miles for the day.
On the 2d the first fine weather was
experienced. The "Silecia" brought
over thirty socialists in the steerage.
They presented a somewhat dilapida
ted appearance , but w-iro easily dis
tinguished by a pieca of bright red
cloth which they wore in the button
hole of their coats , and the women
and children had attached to their
drosses. They were very reticent in
replies to questions. One of the party
was on guard to prevent anyone say

Monday morning. It would appar
ently have been an easy victory for
Trickett , had it not been for an un
fortunate eciidont which will proba
bly render the race oS , as the men do
not seem to hive been at fault. The
match was for 200 o side between
ROBS and Trlckeitj and was arranged
at a time when Trickott confidently
expected to win the world's champion
ship , and when ROJS was equally con-
Ident of winning the regatta. Since
he defeat of both men , the match has
est much of its interest. Tne atten-
lance wai comparatively nmall , and
he betting lightly favored the Aus-
ralian , as Iloso was regarded ai being
out of condition. The course was
hat of the regular championship from
; ho aqueduct at Piithey to Shipmoat
ake , a distance of about four miles
and a quarter. The lucn got away to
gether , Trickott having a trifla the
advantage , if there was any noticeable
difference. ROJS , however , held his
> wn , and there was a splendid and
ast race to Hammersmith. Here
loss spurted slightly , aud gained a
ength and a half or more , and both
men were apparently doing their beat.
Ytihis point , and just after the seni
ors had shot under Hammersmith
iridge , a heavy barge was by some
mismanagement found _ anchored di
rectly across the course. The men
ooled but did not stop. It is doubt-
ul if either was seriously interfered
with. From this point , however , to
lie finishing stroke , Trickett gained
teadily and came in with three
onths ahead easily. Ross made claim
of a foul , but the referee who had
eon the accident decided that neither
oarsman was at fault , and declared the
raca off. It has been decided" that
Trickett and Ross shall row the race
over again on Saturday next. ' *

The solution of the recent sudden rise
ia Lake Erie & Western stock is solv
ed by the announcement that a syndi
cate of capitalists has been formed ,
who have subscribed sofficlent funds
fet the immediate construction of an
important extension to the road , which
will probably make the line an a'sur-
ed success. Large stock purchases
have been rnado , principally by the
different members of the syn
dicate. It is stated that the
bears on the stock market
headed by Gould and Sage , have
locked up * about $12,000,000 , and
they will raako a fierce struggle tbia

through a twist in the money market.

WASHINGTON , November 23 t p.
m. The Post Sunday morning printed
the following : The gossip about the
spoakership of the next house grows
in interest and in importance as mem
bers of congress arrive. The general
drift of talk brings down the contest
to two candidates , and the long llstcf
possible candidates first mentioned
are being dropped one after the other
for reasons which appears patent to
everybody but the candidates them
selves and their friends. For instance ,
Mr. Frye , of Milne , who loomed up
as a formidable competitor for the
place , is said to be desirous of step
ping into the Hon. Hannibal
Hatnlin's shoes , and that
fact precludes the possibility of his oc
cupying the speaker's chair. The
same charge ia laid at the door of Mr.
Conger , of Michigan. The contest
between the Bayley and Baldwin fac-
tiuns is very bitter , and tbeirstrength
ia evenly bil'ncud. Herein lies
Cor.gcr's only hope that of becoming
a compromiae candidate There re
mains , according to this way of
looking at the matter ,
but two prominent candidates.
Mr. Burrocvs , of Michigan , and Air.
Kasson , of Iowa. The former gen
tleman Is already on the ground , and
the latter haa returned to hia diplo
matic position in Austria , but hia
friends are sharply watching the drift
