prayer at 11 o'clock llieie was a larger attend-
r.nco of members piesciit linn at any time
since December. MonNon and Itandall
vvciu both busy during the moining houis ar

minutes for him to get to tlio capltol , nnd sent
nt 1 : 'JO the motion would be made. The re-
piiblknns wcio anxious to know exactly
when the bill would bo called up , and
fie they asked and were told. Then It
becamoonly the duty of the hoiiso to kill
time. All starts of filibustering motions were
made nud Monison walked about the floor
dining ( he last hour , repeatedly looklnirat
the clock , while In Caillslo's loom the waver
ing dcmociats weie having courage put Into
thorn by the frco tradeis. Ono or two of the
doubtful democrats , who had wished to vote
for the bill , weio by this means kept firm ,
lint the icpublicans had nothing to fear. Ail
was well with them. LXaclly at tlio hour ap
pointed Morrison moved to lalo up the bill.
MoKlnley of Ohio was about to call tin an ajo
and no vote when Moirison asked for It
himself. The galleries were crowded , and
although theio was consldciable noise about
the house nt Hist , a rap from the speaker's
desk brouuht silence. The vote proceeded in
silence until Holiuan's iinmo was called.
.No one lesponded. Then , just as the eleik
wasnboutto pass on , a vote came "Aje. "
Kveiy ono looked towards Holman's scat ,
and theiesattho gioat objector , frpsli from
tlio lalhond ears , wllh the stain of tiavel
upon him. His vote brought loith around
of applause , and the democratic membeis
crowded mound and congratulated him.

Morilson , ofeouiso , is dlsippointc.I , for ho
had hoped against fate that his motion would
bocaiilod. Ho gave notice that ho would
call the bill up again on Tuesday next , be.
cause , ho tajs , ho wants to emphasise the
names of the dcmociats who voted against
him and let them go before their constituents
as opposed lo tlio Chicago platfoim. It is
said his ical object is to give tlio president
nn oppoituulty to whip the domocints into

subject will bu any 111010 favorable to tariff
