The journal having been road and approved ,
IVlr. Stewart of Vermont asked for recogni

The honso determined ycjis , 14 1 ; nnys
10"J to consider the conference report.
After a short debate , in the course of which
Mr. Kerr of Iowa declared It was the llrst bill
< llrectcd against trusts that hod over passed
nn American congress , nnd that in fourteen
years' control of the house the democratic
jmrty had not produced n syllable of legisla
tion of the kind , the report was adopted

Mr. Dalzell of Pennsylvania presented the
report of the elections commltteo In the con
tested Mississippi election case of Chalmers
vs Morgan , In favorof Morgan ; mid Mr. Howell -
ell of Illinois presented a report from the
same committee upon the cuso of Miller vs
Elliott , In favor of Miller.
Mr. Miami then olTered his resolution to
tuko up the silver bill.
Mr. McICiiiley made the point of order that
tlio motion was not privileged , and that the
only way to reach tno speakers table was to
follow the order of morning business.
Mr. Conger of Town added ns a further
point , amidst sarcastic democratic laughter ,
that the bill was not on the speaker's table ,
but In the hands Of the coinage comiliittco.
Mr. lilanil argued in opposition to the point
of order and held that the bill was on the
upeaker'.s table and therefore within reach.
Mr. Springer said the elVect of the special
order under which the bill was originally con
sidered was to take the bill out of the commit
tee of the whole. The only question was
whether the senate had added new matter a
new amendment that was subject to consid
eration in commltteo of the whole.
After considerable further debate on the
jraiiit Mr. IJUttenvorth declared that there
were not twenty-live men under the dome of
the ctipitol who believed upon their oath that
the bill was Incorrectly referred. [ Repub

Mr. Williams of Illinois said that yester

chairman of the committo on coinage walked
up the speaker's desk , took up a bill that ho
( vVininms ) believed was the silver bill and
liaiuled it over to the clerk of the commltteo
on coinage. This looked like a conspiracy to
Obtain physical possession of the bill.
Mr. Conger or Iowa , chairman of the com
mittee on coinage , said the bill was delivered
to his clerk before 11 o'clock yesterday morn-

The Scheme ofnn Arl/onn County Hut
WASHINGTON , Juno 20. President Harrison
risen today returned to the house without ap
proval the bill to authorize the board of superVisors -
Visors of Marlcopu county , Arizona , to Issue
bonds at the rule of fcl per mile In aid of the
construction of n certain rultroud , The presi
dent treats the mutter In great detail nnd
says the bill scem.s to have passed the house
under u misapprehension of Its true
character , The report of the com
mittee on territories sUited that the
county would receive bonds In payment
of the sum proposed to Iw advanced. The
bill , In fntft , did not provide for the loan to bo
secured bv bonds , but a subscription of stock.
The bill dues not submit the question of
granting this aid to n vote of the pepplo of the
country or confer direct authority upon the
supervisors to Issue bonds. It is sold , how
ever , that In April , 1889 , nn election was field
to obtain th6 views of the people on the ques
tion. It does not appear from the papers ,
says the president , who were the managers
of this election , what notice , if nny , was
given , or in what form the question was pre
sented. There was no law providing forsuch
election , and , being wholly voluntary , it was
of course under the management
of those who favored the HUbstdy.
I have been given what purport
to bo the vote nt twelve points , standing
1,105 ayes and 1M ! imy.s. liut of the afllnn-
utivo vote Ir W were given nt Phoenix nud
183 at n town very near Phoenix. If there
are no other objections to thn bill I should
deem this alone sufficient that no provision
hud been mudo for submitting It to u vote of
the ] > ooplo ut an election after duo notlco and
under the sanction of law the question
whether this subscription should bo made.
The president votwldora nt length the ques
tion of limitation of municipal nud other in
debtedness nnd says Murieopa county Is ono
of great extent and this great urea Is to bo
taxed to construct a road which can bo of
advantage to but n f rnctlon. Ot the existing
bond Indebtedness Marlcopa county Is f i"2-
000 , nnd the tax assessment about-yS.OOO.OOO.
The bonded debt , to say nothing of the float
ing debt , is already largely in excess of the
legal limit , and it is proposed to increase it
by a subscription that will certainly involve
nearly S.MO,000. If the bill should become n
law the bonded , indebtedness will closely ap
proximate 10 percent of tbo value of the
property of the county. The president feels
the fprco of the argument that the freight
charges' now imposed by the railroad inxipor-
ntion are oppressive , but the bill does not af
ford much relief in that direction , as there
would bo but ono competing point Phoenix ,
lie docs not think any one will insist that the
true and permanent property of communities
will bo promoted by loading them with a great

Did Not Make Safe Ijonns.
CIIICAOO , June 20. The Park National
bank of this city closed Its doors this morn
ing and a crowd ot depositors now surrounds
its place of business , The causes of the
failure arc not yet known. A notice posted
on the door says it is in charge of J. D ,

loans and discounts amounting to $080,000 ;
notes and bill rcdlscounterf , SG'20,000 ; surplus
fund 31,000 , and undivided profits ,
$18.000. The failure was not unex

and took charge of'tho bank , it is said , with

than conservative bankers consider nqccs-
sary , with the result of getting rather a poor
line of paper.
President Packer insists that the bank is

Why It. Wns Closed.
WASHINGTON , Juno 20. The comptroller of
the currency said this afternoon that his ac
tion in closing- the Park National bank of
Chicago wus based on the report of the bank
examiner. It appears , the comptroller says ,
that the bank made largo loans on doubtful
security , and some ofllcers of the bank have
been heavy "borrowers on Its account. The
comptroller says n receiver will certainly bo
appointed unless there is a change in the
management and the contribution cof now
capital to put the bank on a .sound basis. The
comptroller says It is not likely the failure
will ellcct nuy other institution.

commerce commission to the United States

As already noted , Chairman Walker of the
Interstate Commerce Hallway association
made a vigorous protest against those findings
and commission huvo issued a notice
that prior to issuing an order enforcing tlio
rates as recommended they will glvu addi
tional hearing to roads Interested , beginning
July 8 , in Washington. Chairman Walker ,
who has made a careful study of the question.
declares the enforcement of the proposed
rates will bo rdsastrous.
The roads themselves hardly know what to
do. Kuch prominent men as General Man
ager Chapoll of the Alton und St. John of the

Several attempts have been made to draw
out of the president some kind of a committal
on the silver bill by members of the house of
representatives and the senate. Three or
fot.1 statesmen visited the white house today
and by one way or another sought to elicit
nn expression from thg chief executive as to
what he would do in tlio event of n frco
coinage bill , such as was parsed 'bv the sen
ate , being sent to him. The presi
dent in the early pnrt of this session
indicated that ho would Ilka n bill passed
such as Secretary Windoni proposed and sent
to congress , but smco that has been c.istiisido
and u free , coinage measure substituted no
word has been uttered by him which would
indicate his position on. any other silver
proposition than the present. The president
indicated very clearly what kind of it measure
urehe wanted when slept were taken toward
the formulation of tuo bill prepared by Secre
tary Wlndom. Now that congress has
taken It upon Itsplf. to pre
sent an independent measure the president
intends to wait until congress lias-done wnnt
it considers its duty , then ho will proceed to
the duty devolving upon himself. lie is free
to say that he is anxious for n Judicious silver
bill to bo finally adopted. Ho believes it will
be to the best interests of the country , ns it
will increase the volume of the circulating
medium. Ho does not want .to see a bill
passed which will bo objectionable to any
considerable section of the country ,
as it would not lo a thorough
success if it was antagonized by
any ) formidable element of business. It is
believed , although it is not known , that ho
does not look favorably upon the free coinage
bill , but whether ho would veto it remains to
The votes in tlio house today relating to
the silver bill stood about the snmo us yester
day , nn unwavering majority of two or three
against any movement to send it to the com
mittee on coinage , weights nnd measures ,

bo amended and reported back
in n form similar to the
original Windom bill. The democrats are not
solidly for free coinage , but are solid in tlio
present light because they believe they can
cast a reflection upon Speaker Keed. The
fact that a number of republicans voted with
the demqcrat-s to rescind the action of the
speaker in referring the bill back to n com
mittee cannot be construed ns a rellection at
the hands of republican members upon their
republican speaker. It only means that there
are a numlxir of free coinage advocates who
have so much prcssuro upon them from their
districts that they feel compelled to stand
against movements intended to weaken the
cause of free coinage.
Mr. Dockery of Missouri , who is ono of the
leading 'democrats now lighting tlio speaker's
rulings , acknowledged today that the demo
crats were standing together simply to "sit
down on tlio speaker , " Ho says that ho

were opposed to frco coinage and that they

The bill still rests upon the speaker's table
and is yet considered as in committee of the
whole. The journal of yesterday , which
showed that the bill had been committed to
the committee on coinage , weights and meas
ures , has been amended so that it docs not
show any action on tlio hill whatever. Mr.
Bland of Missouri moved to lay the bill before
the house and direct the speaker to present it
for immediate consideration , but there were
dilatory motions which consumed the time up
to the hour of adjournment , nnd the motion
Is yet pending. No one is able to forecast the
outcome of this contest. Many of the free
coinage advocates are frank to say that the
Windom bill with the bullion clause stricken
out is better in the long run. for the country
than the measure which whs adopted by the
senate , and that it is sentiment nnd principle
