IlmiHUroUKh Favor * tlio Anti-Option lllll.
Mr. Hnnsbrouch , In addressing the sonata
in favor of the 'anil-option bill , said he bo-
llcvcd Unit ttio inuusuro camu within the
"general welft\ro clause1 , of the constitution ,
nnd Unit if enacted into law it would not
only bo sustained by iho courts , but it would
complete the system which hud grown up in
the country In the last fuw ycats ana undur
Which combinations of men and sometimes
f one man could cll in u single day In fictitious
lots ton times the total annual yield of the
Mr. Hlpcock opposed tbo bill. Who were
Ihn men , ho asked , who were ancthmutized
end characterized us criminals by those ) who
\rcro pressing this bill ) In New York they
Ircra the morcnanls , the capitalists , the men
who bad developed the greatest growing
% oit , which now complnitieJ aeiilnsi their
commercial methods. Their nionoy , their
enterprise , tholr genius , had built up prcit
lines of transportation nnd hud built ( so to
say ) ten now state * . They were the pioneers
of progress in this country , us merchants
wcro in uvory civilized nation , nnd yet these
men were characterized us common gamblers
wno debauched the young and who tempted
tnen to embezzlement.
Mr. Wushburu denied that ho had over in
cluded such men in bis denunciation. Ho
hud referred only to men who had no capital
and who sold whut they had not cot.
Trampled Down the li\v of thu Country.
Mr. HUcock said that tboso men , whom
lie had described , from the state of Now
York and the state of Minnesota , were pro-
losling to congress ugainst the bill , und ho
referred to tlio petition from tbo bankers of
Minneapolis , presentoa today by Mr. Davis ,
expressing fears for the effect of the bill on
the value of tlio groin agricultural products
' 9 nnd gcnciul business interests ot the great
northwest. This bill , ho continued , wus the
\ basis of the most gigantic trust over con
ceived by hiinmii intelligence , und it wo'Hd
Bwrop Into political obll.'Icn every
man who hud promoted it. It tramplcu
down tlio common law of the
country. It struck at Individual liberty ; it ,
Btruelt at Iho right of indivlunaU to

purpose. Ho boliovcd thai it wus fraught
with the greatest danger , Inasmuch us It
would make n precedent lor allowing con-
prcbs to wield the power of Jove over the
American people. Under tlio taxing poucr
congress could rule ot ruin every Individual
mid community and state in iho union. The
bill would bo Ibo basis of ono of the most
cruel and rapacious trusts nnd oppressions
of the people that over oxUtcu among nuy
Tlio bill wont over until Monday.

WASUINOTON , D. C. , July 23. Speaker
Crisp said this afternoon thai the World's
fair appropriation would nol come up In the
house until Tuesday. It Is the understand
ing lhat iho conferees of the sundry civil
bill will muko their report to the house on
Monday , but that they will uot call It up
until iho following day , tboreport going
over to enable It lo bo prl-ilod In the Con
gressional Record bcforo Us conslderallou U
begun In iho hoitso. This program will on-
nblo iho majority In the house to devote most
of Monday to the R.iutn pension ofllce re
port. Them are over 'WO amendments to tno
sundry civil bill , and ni they will bo consid
ered In order , It will ho possible for the op
position to ulvo . .considerable trouble aud ,
perhaps , cause a little delay in reaching the
World's fnir amoudmonts.
J\l > cct. tn Win on the "Show Down , "
After a decisive vote bus been obtained in
the house on tbo World's fair bill there will
bo llitlo. trouble over other points In the re
port , aud Iho disposition will bo to finish up
the bill as quickly ns possible , The Worm's
fair managers expect to hiivu a slight major
ity on the "show down" 0:1 : the appropria
tion , und If they have such n majority ulth a
quorum voting It of course settles the mat
ter , nnd U ir. almost equally certain
that if the vote should show a clear and
decisive majority of the house ugainst the
appropriation , the senate would yield
There Is ono thing , however , that is dis
turbing the World's fair managers and mem
bers who are anxious for final adjournment ,
and that Is that u quorum may uot vote on
the World's fair item on Tuesday. A vleor-
ous effort Is being made to recall absentees
and lo hold for iv few days longer the mem
bers now in the city , but chating to got
out of town. Ono active World's ' fair worker
snld this morning that ho was afraid , with
all the members present in the house casting
their votes , a quorum might not bo dis
closed. It is certain some members viould
raise the point of no quorum should such
happen lo bu Iho caso. ' 1 ho World's fair man
added thov baa kept a prortt ninny of their
friends hero on Iho assurance that the matter
would reach a vote tnU week , ana now some
of them , ho Icarod , would leave town on the
afternoon and oveuiug trains. This would
maka necessary a call of the housj and delay -
lay final action.
CliiiuccA for n Quorum.
There are not n great many members in
the house at one lima these hot clays , but on
u vole many new faces appear , und yet a
vote showed -00 members present und vet
ing. This would indicate that , barring Iho
po.ssibility of a filibuster by southern mem
bers , which may or may not occur , and will
continue to bo a mutter of speculation until
the last moment , n quorum will bo bora on
Thursday oven though tome of these now in
the city take their departure. U Is expected
thatBorao additional members will arrive In
the city In time lo vote Tuesday nnd render
possible nn adjournment of congress next
week , and the fact itial the Ruum report is
ready to bo called up will tend to nwull the
congressional attendance , Iho naoptlon of
the resolution urging Commissioner Ranra's
dismissal being in iho line of dumocralio
pariy policy.

WASHINGTON , D. C. , July 23. There was a
lively scene this morning in the house just
before Its assembling , and John Devlin of
Iho executive committee of the Knights of
Labor curno near gelling a good blow from
G. N. Dales , a ono-armed veteran of the con
federate army , and at present chairman of
the special committee- Investigating Iho
Homestead trouble and the Pinkerton sys
tem. The trouble grow out of criticisms
laaJu by Devlin on tha conduct ot yester
day's examination of Ibo Pinkertons and in
sinuating that an adjournment of the com
mittee , tukon lo enable the members lo vote
on Iho dollcicncy appropriation bill , bad
aciu illy been taken to glvo the Pinkcrtoini
time to prlma-lhcin clvos with nnsucrs to
such questions propounded by the Knights
of Labor.
Mr. Devlin snld to Mr. Uatcs that ho
thought this action of the committee yostor-
dny wus most extraordinary. Ho thought it
strungo Hint the Pinkcrtons shoulu bo per
mitted to see the written questions and read
them before Ihoy woio asked by iho chair
man. His manner as well us his wordt of
fended General O.Uc , who told him that the
committee had treated him and bis associ
ates with extraordinary consideration , hav
ing given tholr quo.Ulons precedence over
these of the committee aud that his criticism
now was Improper nnd impertinent. Moro
words followed and General Oatos told Dev
lin thai bo migbt go to h 1. Mr. Devlin
charged that the oommlltco nan laicon UiU
recess at the Inxlanco of the Plnkertons.
JudgoOatoi retorted that this wai false ;
that Devlin was it d d liar. The two man
seemed about to coma to blows when mom-
herd Interposed and doorkeepers hustled
out of the bull.

WASHINGTON , D. C. , July 23. The judiciary
committee of the senate- managed to get a

same six members who wcro present yester
day again attended Iho scission today. Con
trary to expectation llnnl action was nut
taken on Iho nomination of Mr. Shlras to bo

the commltleo , utter dlscuBslng the matter
for half an hour , adjourned to mcot Monday.
The attituao of the democratic members of
iho committee has not yet been fully defined
und 1C is now Impossible to say now they
will vote on iho question of reporting thu
nomination to the senate favorably or
whether they will permit any report to bo
made. It may bo noted In this connection
that the soimto , by u majority vole , may nt
buy time discharge- the committee from
further consideration of tbo 'nomination and
take- the matter In it * own hand ! . Among
the conservative senators , however , there U ,
of course , a strong Indisposition to adopting
this radical course except in an omergouoy ,
