Advertisements for bids for the bonds to
bo issued by the government In pavment of
the Cherokee Strip wcro made some time
ago and tbo time for the bids expired
today. The result was that there was not a
bid. The amount of bonds to bo issued ap
proximates $3,000,000 , duo in ono , two , thrco
and four year * and bearing 8 per cent. The
government guaranteeing the payment of
them makes them first-class investments
and it was supposed the moneyed men in
New York would Jump at the opportunity to
get hold of them.
It was supposed that the shortness of the
life of the bonds would perhaps bring them
down to par , but no lower. The representa
tives of the Indians , Messrs. Harris , Sipo ,
Star and Cunningham , went to No'w York to
see about the matter a week ago. The Wall
street men saw them , but wo.'o cold and
showed no great greed to get hold of the
bonds. Hero it is understood that a com-
blnatlon has boon made by the money men of
that street to force down the price of the
bonds. They seem willing to pay 05 cents
on the dollar for the bonds , but do not want
to go higher. In fact , they are determined
to "bear" the bonds. They say the reason
they make no offers is because the Indians
are sticking out for at least a par price , and
that the amount required to take up the
issue is so enormous that it cannot be readily
raised unless there is a good profit in rais
ing it.
They talk about the ticklish condition of
affairs in money circles and point to the fact
that oven m gilt-edged securities now money
can hardly be had except on call. The In
dians will sell their bonds after awlnlo , but
not before the money sharks see how much
they will stand in the way of a reduction of
their asked price for the bonds.

A couple of good norths In the Agricultural

Wiiililiiuton Notur.
WASHINGTON , D. C. , May 31 , A few days
ago the Cherokee Indian committee adver
tised for bids for $3,000,000 , bonds guaranteed
by the government. The date fixed for
opening the bids was 12 o'clock today. When
that hour arrived n number of the commit
tee and several treasury officials were . t.n
Secretary Carlisle's room nt the Treasury
department. Not a single bid was made and
the Cherokee Indian committee very plainly
showed Its disappointment. iye
It appears that the president is unwilling
\e \
to permit Senator Allison to terminate his
services ns a member of the international
monetary conference in spite of the illu
tor's oft expressed wish of so doing , and the
senator may yet consent to serve.
The Star says : The president has Indi
cated that lie will probably call congress
together about the 1st of October instead of
the middle of September ns at flrst contem

ofilclals are not apprehensive that cholera
will appear in this cpuntry. Since last fall ,
when in certain European ports cholera be
came epidemic , the sanitary conditions hnvo
been improved nnd the greatest precautions
known to medical science have been called
into use. The United States government ,
both nt homo and abroad , is observing all
the known precautions to prevent its reach
ing hero , nnd those efforts will bo doubly
increased now that , cholera cases have ap
peared iu Hamburg. It is not thought neces
sary nt this stage to quarantine against any
of the European points , but should cholera
increase Secretary Carllslo/vlll not hesitate
to do so.
Dr. Wyman said today ho felt no alarm on
the subject , but was keeping the closest kind
of watch on Incoming steamers from cholera

WAsmxorox , D. C. , Miy III. After the
usual season of devotion this morning the
Presbyterian general assembly proceeded to
vote on the question of sustaining the appeal
from the Judgment of the Now York
presbytery acquitting Prof. Briggs of
heresy. Under call of the roll , with
speeches limited to three minutes , each
member rose ns called and stated whether
lie voted for against entertaining the appeal
and the reasons therefor. As ono after an
other of the members brlelly indicated his
position Dr. Briggs became weary of the
talk , and asked and was granted permission
to retire. The call of the presbyteries by
states progressed as far as Kansas , when a
recess was taken till 2:30 : p. in.
After recess the debate continued with
the Bi majority of the speakers against Dr.
supporters , the most notable one , perhaps ,
being a graduate of Union Theological
seminary , James F. Garvln , n missionary to
Chill. ;
The call of the synod of New York havh'g
been completed , Dr. Craig endeavored to induce -
duce the assembly to couio to some amicable
arrangement by unanimous consent to cutoff
o1 [ the flood of debate , but was unable to
secure tlio necessary co-operation and the
calling of the roll was continued.
I'rcclpktntod n Lively Scone.
Elder Thomas McDougall of Cincinnati
precipitated a lively scene on the floor , unequaled -
equaled in the course'of the trial , except
when Dr. Bripgs challenged the truthful
ness of a statement made by Dr. Dufllold.
Mr. McDougall Is tin earnest , oven radical ,
opponent of Dr. Briggs , and speaks with an
incisive aggressiveness that easily evokes
"If It be In order , " ho began , "in a Presby
terian assembly in this high court , I would
like to ask if the omniscience and veracity ,
the : character of God Almighty , of the Ix > rd
Jesus Christ , may be questioned ? God Al
mighty has said that Isaiah said thus and
sc . Dr. Briggs has said lo Gnd Almighty
that Isaiah did not write half the book that
boars his name. The Lord Jesus Christ said
in the Now Testament that Isaiah wrote the
book bearing his name. Dr. Briggs says
Dr. ilrnry Storrs Mr. Moderator , I call
the gentleman to order. Any man is enti
tled to bo defended against attacks upon his
character. Did Dr. Briggs say any such
thing ?
Mr. McDougall Why , Dr. Storrs , you will
find it on page . "

This colloquy was carried on in the midst of
great confusion , cries of oriicr rising from all
parts of the housn , and the moderator and
Air. McDougall both trying to bo heard.

Brijrgs will withdraw his statement , 1 will

Dr. Storrs But Mr. McDougall says that
Dr. Brigps said God was untruthful , which
is blasphemy and unpardonable.
Mr. McDougall 1 said that Isaiah said
thus and so In the New Testament , the Lord
Jesus Christ said Isaiah said thus and so ,
and Dr. Briegs said that Isaiah did not write
that part of the book in winch these quo
tations arc found.
Elder Shepard of the North Philadelphia
presbytery vigorously protested against the
utterances and conduct of Mr. McDougall ,
but Elder Purncll of Baltimore , pleaded for
fair treatment lor the speaker.
Elder MeDougall , the storm having calmed
down , concluded : "Christ said no man can
como unto the Father but by Me. Dr. Briggs
said that Martincan found God through the
reason and that no man found Him through
the church. Whom will you believe , Christ
or Dr. Briggs ?
An extension of half an hour to the after
noon session enabled the clerk to progress in
the roll through the synod to Oregon. The
assembly then took a recess until 7:45 : ,
The call of the roll was resumed at the
evening session , members who desired to
spealc being given the floor when their names
were called. Only a small percentage , how
ever , took advantage of the privilege , pre
ferring to follow the advice of llev. Gcorgo
D. Baker of Philadelphia in yielding the
floor that a vote might bo reached sooner.
It was 8:45 : o'clock when the moJerator
put the question : "Shall the specifications
of error bo sustained ? " and Dr. Huberts , the
stated clerk , read the first spcclticatlon , In
substance that the presbytery of Now York
on objections made by Dr. Briggs required
the prosecuting committee to amend the
amended charges and specifications by strik
ing out charge four. The specification was
declared to bq.sustnlned by a vote of 2S'J to
100. This vote showed that the attendance
was seventy-seven less than the number In
attendance when the vote was taken Fri
day , entertaining the appeal , the vote on
which was 405 yeas , 144 nays.
Specifications second to twelfth , inclusive ,
under tlio first ground of appeal , all relating
to irregularities In the proceedings of the
Now York presbytery were sustained ,
seriatim , sotno by tally and some merely by
viva voce , or rising vote. The Briggs men
showed their greatest strength on spcclilca-
tion four , which alleges that the action of
the presbytery in not giving Dr. Briggs nn
opportunity to reply to alleged now matter
without specifying the now matter was
Irregular. The vote resulted 233 to 1U3 , sus
taining the specification.
The second ground of appeal alleged the
receiving of Improper testimony and was
based upon thrco specifications , They set up
that tha defendant should have been sworn ;
that the. statements and matter interpolated
by the defendant Into the record were per
mitted to remain and quotations and extracts -
tracts offered by the defendant were ro-
celved ns evidence without his having been
sworn. On flrst specillcation a division was
taken , the result being that the specifica
tion was sustained UG2 to 185 , The others
were sustained by viva voce voto.
The third ground of thn appeal was that
of declining to rccclvo Important testimony ,
with two specifications , that charges four
and seven were stricken out , thereby preventing -
venting the proving of charges , These speci
fications were sustained without division.
Small Consolation for Jlrlecs.
The fourth ground of appeal alleged
"manifestation of prejudice in the conduct
of the case , " and of its six specifications the
Briggs men carried two uud came within
two votes of carrying another. On tno first
specification , which alleged that Hovs.
George Alexander , Antolno Arreghla. Henry
M. Fields , Henry S. Hastings and Henry
VanDyke made prejudiced utatomcnts and
afterwards voted In the presbytery "not to1'
sustain each and every one of the specillca-
lions and charges , a viva voce vote was
token and the moderator declared the spccl
fication lost. sih
Specifications second , third and fourth ,
alleging that the presbytery did not try the
case on its merits , attempted to terminate
it without attaining the ends of discipline
and evaded the issue , were sustained b
viva voce votes.
Specillcation fifth , alleging that Rova ,
Francis Brown , Henry M. Field , Thomas S
Hastings , J , Hall Mcllvano and Henry Van
Dylie , member * of the presbytery , voted into
sustain the accused after ho had been
harped In the appeal with prejudice , was
est by a viva voce vote.
Specification sixth , alleging that sundry
llrcctors , officers and professors of Union
Theological seminary , namely , Hovs. Brown ,
Edward L , . Clark , Charles G. Gillette ,
Thomas S. Hastings , J. Hall Mcllvano ,
i'hlllip Schorr , William Smith and Mr.
Vincent and William A. Wheeler ,
voted to acquit the accused u | > on
lach and every specification and charge , af-
cr they had approved of Dr. Brlgus' In
augural address , which contained the alleged
erronemia ; doctrines , for the holding and
publishing of which tlto accused was there
on trial , a viva voce vote was folio vcti by n
count and the stated clerk announced that It
stood 'JiO ; to 1KH , but suggested that another
count be taken on account of the closeness
of the voto. There wcro crl&j of "No I"
lowovor , and the clerk proceeded to read
the fifth ground of the appeal.
Firth nnil Iit : llrmiml of Apprnl.
The fifth and last ground of the appeal
concluded : "Specifications of error , and
charges mistake or injustice in the de
cision. " The specifications of error charged
is the failure to convict the defendant on
competent charges , the facts being ad
mitted by the defendant , that the judgment
was not warranted by the law and evidence ;
Hint the judgment is , in fact , nn approval of
the views embodied In the inaugural ad
dress ; that the judgment is vaguu , unjust
and misleading ; that the presbytery was
moved by unsworn and improper testimony ;
that the judgment is contradictory in form
and effect. The votes on these spcclllcn-
lions were taken without a division , result
ing In a declaration that each and every ono
had been sustained.
This part of the proceedings having been
disposed of llo-r. W. C. Young of Kentucky
moved that the roll bo called and that the
assembly vote on the main question : "Shall
the appeal bo sustained I" which was adopted.
Bcforo beginning the roll call , the moder
ator announced that the form of answer
would bo "sustained" or "not sustained , "
and that the commissioners might vote "to
sustain in part , " but that such votes would
bo counted as part of the total to sustain the
appeal. The roll was then called in the
midst of nn almost painful stillness , the
spectators in the gallery rising to their
feet In their anxiety to catch every response.
SUHtnliiot the Appeal.
The vote was announced at 10:15 : by the
stated clerk as follows : Whole number of
votes cast , 411'J ' ; to sustain the appeal'JOS ;
to sustain In part , 85 ; total to sustain the
appeal , I1S3 ; not to sustain , 110.
After the result had boon announced , Hov.
J. T. Smith of Baltimore moved the appoint
ment of a committee of fifteen commission
ers , of which llev. Thomas A. Hoyt , D.D. ,
of Philadelphia , shall bo chairman , to bring
in an explanatory minute. This was car
ried , and , on motion of the president of La-
fnyotto college , the moderator was author
ized to appoint the committee. He will an
nounce the committee tomorrow.
The assembly then , at 12:25 : , adjourned
until tomorrow morning nt UDO. :
. . The explanatory minutes to bo prepared
by the committee to bo named tomorrow ,
will express the sentiment of the assembly
whether it shall bo reversed or modified.
The report of the committee will doubiloss

important matters on the docket for consid

more Interesting than for several months.
The whole ttiwn Is agog over late develop
ments. First came the arrest of Husk and
Kenvoii , editors of the native papers ,
charged with libeling the provisional gov
ernment and Minister Slovens. Then came ) ? '
the publication of Secretary Grcsham's In-
structlons to Commissioner Blount
nnd letters warning the anuoxatlonist.i
that they could not depend on help
from the United States In case the royalists
attempt to reinstate the queen. Then
came the news of Blount's appointment na
United States minister , and finally the at
tempt of the provisional government to silence -
lenco Charles Nordhoff , correspondent of ,
the Now York Herald , and Minister Blount'a
Interference in his behalf.
Alnnnlnc Humors.
All sorts of alarmln. ? rumors are afloat
and oven Iltount , who nil along has pre
dicted that there would bo no trouble ,
is not now so confident. Dlouno
gave out for publication his letter
of Instructions from Gresham. They glvo
permanent authority In nil matters of the re-
hulons of this government to the existing or
other government of the islands and protec
tion of our citizens , and gives him full dis
cretion , in co-operation with the commander
of the naval foroos , to dctcrmlno
when they should bo landed or
withdrawn ; that while the United States
claims no right to interfere iu
Internal conflicts , It will not nrqnlosco in
interference by other powers. Blounl him
self adds this postscript :
"While I shall refrain from interference
between conflicting forces of whatever na
tionallty for supremacy , I will protei't > ,
American citizens not participating In such
conflict. "
This declaration has created great excite-
mem' , Doing regarded by all parties as an
invitation to the royalists to make trouble.
The .alter , however , say they are not pro-
paro.l to take advantage of the notice and
will await tin ) decision ottho United States.
If the islands bo not annexed there will
likely bo troublo. The provisional government -
ment is strengthening its position , and
claims to bo able hold
to its position if neces
sary until a change of administration in the
United States.

KOMI : , May 31. [ Now York Herald Cable
-Special to TUB Bite. ] Humors are being
industriously surcad In certain quarters
that Mgr. Ireland is not just now in such ,
high favor ut the Vatican as ho was some
months ago. I am assured that while
the pope warmly approves the
liberal objects of the archbishop , and
admires his earnestness , ho Is less thor

which ho has occasionally hud recourse to In
order to attain tneso objects. The dissatis

publication of those rumors led to nn Indef

Ecclesiastics who have exceptional

as an answer to n recent latter from
the American bishops. I have reason to
believe the propaganda authorities look
coldly on Mgr. Ireland , This feeling inuy bo
reflected In the draft of the document , but
the pope will not allow the message to go

determined to retain direct control of the
