the struggling Cubans when Mr. Steele ( rep ,
Ind. ) and .Mr Hltt bjlli railed thi > attentio.i
at tlm chair to the fact that Jlr. DoArmond
was lot illscusslng the point of order.
Mr. DeAnnoii'laid hoicll iindcrE-'ood
this , lutt he would not flinch from his pur
pose. Ho would siy no n-ore , but If the
point of order was sustained ho declared It
\m hla piuprjo to appeal from the dccUlon
of 'tlio ' cli2h anil give the houto the oppor
tunity to dotonulne this qi-estlon l\.r Itself.
Ho frit constrained to do this out of a ucnao
of public duty.
Mr. Ilalley , the democratic leader , rein-
forcid tl.o views of Mr. DeArniniul. arguing
that a proposition to iccognl/e a state of
nnr In Cuba was certainly grrmnlno to this
bill. It had been his purpose , ho said , tu
it me nfferoJ the same Cuban bclllKCicncy
resolution as an amendment. The cllaiaof
Ills speech came when ho offered to withdraw
the amendment If Mr l.lltt. the chairman
of the fo.clgn affairs committee , would g.vo
assurance that the t > vnntc resolution would
icculvc consideration within a reasonable
time , Tim democrats applauded this chal
lenge , Ho paused to await Mr. llltt'a an-
ewer , but .Mr. Hltt did not rise.
"Tho gentleman" ( Hltt ) , added Cilr. Dallcy ,
"la 33 tillcnt ns the republican party on ties
quejtion" ( Again the demociats cheered
and the galleries applauded ) .
Mr , Hltt arose , but Instead of repljlng to
Mr. llailcy's ihallcngo , lie called the atten
tion of the chair to the fact that ' .Mr. Dallcy
nas not discussing the point of order. "It

Mr. Hepburn , In the chair , sustained the

Mr ningley , ' ho floor trader of tje trajor-
Ity , took the lloor. Ho characterized Mr. De-
Armond'a appeal fn.m the decision of fie
chilr es a cttn ordinary proposition.
It was a proposition to o\enulo the rules ,
ho aald , &tid establUh a new mode ef pro

of but'lncia "Many a time , " he was ray-

"Then the gentleman concedes thU Is a
partisan ( luestlon. ' " tto utcxl Mr. Terry ( dcm. ,
Artcj ) "that the democrats are en ono sMo
and the icpubllcans are 01 the other. "
, Mr. Dlngley waved Mr , Terry to ono side
and paid no attention to the question. He
uppe.iltd to hla side to sustain flio rules. The
republicans indicated their support by warm
iraiilfcstallona of appro\al
| Mr. DcArmond got the lloor again , and
In reply urged meinbera on both sides of
the house tooto "to fico thU house for one
Jiour ftom a dominion so absolute that It
i Is impossible to gat consideration for any
question , no matter how Important or ur-
gcut , without the coiuent of those In au
thority i u the house. "
"It seems , " ho added Ironically , "to bo our
loftiest Uuty to observe the petty shifting
rules of the bouse , no matter they
lead , or what the exigencies of the time de
mand. "
Again Mr , Hltt protested that the debate
was not on the question before the house ,
and again the minority Jeered.
" 1 an. sticking as clobo to my text , "
Bhoutod .Mr. UeArniond , "as , the gentleman
from Maine ( Mr Dlngley ) did. " Ho Ucclarcl
that no coJo of rules should violate the plain
dictates of common humanity and decency.
Mr. Simpson ( pop. , Kan. ) Interrupted testate
state- that the upeakcr himself had violated
rule 10 by not appointing the committees of
the bouse.
Mr. Henderson ( rep. , la. ) , a member o'
the rules committee , answered with spirit
ami much evidence of feeling. Ho said the
MUsourl member ( DeAimoml ) nas agalu
lei-tuilng the house.
He was Interrupted by Mr. DaArmoad , and
the colloquy was fast.Vhen at ono point
Mr. DcArmond got a round of applause , Mr.
Hpndcreon exclulmeil , "It Is jour political
buncombe that you are app'audlng. There
lo no committee la this house eo might ) at
to act or retard action * unless the house la
behind It ; and there * Is no man to mighty so
to retard action unless a nxajoilty of the
housfl Is ben I ml him. "
The confutlon redoubled as the debate pro.
cetded , many members centendlng for the
floor , while the area Ic front of the speaker's
iltx'k wag crowded ,
Mr , Henderson ga > o a parting shot by de
claring If a majority of the lioujo desired
action on tt.'U resolution , "then that action
will be taken despite the tae play of the
gentleman fiom Missouri. "
A brief clash occurred between Mr. Ilalley
and Mr , Dlngley on the procedure in tbe
present case.
Mr. Lowli ( doia. , Waeh. ) ave a breathing
spell by maklnc ; a long speech on precedents
favorable to the Cuban amendment.
The Cuban theme temporarll > disappeared ,
and Mr. Cannon arJ othois dLscucacd the
parliamentary status.
"If the Cubro amendment Is not In or
der , " asked Mr. llMnd ( dem. , Mo ) of Mr.
Canton , "hovv cm the question be brought
before the house eo that \\o can \oto on It ? "
"I am not required to answer how jou
must piocecd , " answered Mr. Canneii , amid
derisive laughter from the democratic side.
"Do > ou > ounjjf | bello\o thU amendment lo
In order ? "
"yes , I do , " responded Mr. Dlicil , "be-
OIIIRO this Is the only way wo cun get at It.
It is a law of necessity just now "
Aciin the debate drifted Into a contest bo.
. t een Mr. Uallcy and Mr. Din ley over
I parliamentary proceduce.
j Mr Lacey ( rep. , la. ) argued that the mln-
I orlty could 111 afford to counsel the de
fiance of tlio house. Tlio rules were for
, the protection of the minority.
Mr. Fleming ( dcm. , Ga ) declared that
whllo he was In favor of acknowledging the
Independence of Cuba , he had sworn to sup
port the rules of the IIOUBO and he could
1 not bring himself to vote to overthrow them.
Theao remarks earned for him several
lounda of applause from the republican
Immediately a break occurred In the re
publican ranks when Mr. Colson ( rep. , Ky. )
denounced the Inaction of the house on the
Cuban question and applause was trans
ferred to the democratic side. This was
auoitllvcd , however , ta Mr. Colion con
cluded his remarks by declaring th'at he
should vote to uphold the decision of the
chair. "Hut I warn my republican friends , "
' ha added , "that wo ha\o delayed too long
1 the recognition of the Insurgents If wo
do not act , wo will bo swept out of power ;
! and It wo are not given the opportunity to

tsctlca In order to cast my vote for Cuba
Independently. ( General applause. )
After sumo remarks by Mr. Grow ( rep ,
I'a , ) there were cries of "Voto. " "Voto"
from the republican side , but the debate
proceeded for some time.

Hut Mr. Hepburn , who was In the chair , held
that Mr. Ilalley'a point uf order came too

democratle Jeers ,
"I would appeal from tiat decision. " said
Mr. iJJalley , "were It not that two appeals

Tiiero was no break In party lines on this

Tlio question t'icn recurred on the appeal

In acenidaLce with notice previously cUen ,
Mr. Hale of 'Maine ' called up the urgent de

garded this bill as of great Importance and
felt that It should bo passed promptly
"From published statements made by mem
bers of the foreign relations committee , said
Mi. Carter , It appears that the senate maybe
bo engaged perhaps for ten days In con
sideration of the Hawaiian annexation
treaty. The census bill ought not to bo
dclavcd BO long as that. The necessity for
effecting the pro imlnary airangemcnts for
taking the census Is evident to all senators.
The census committee cannot look with
equanimity on a possible delay of thirty

of which will rcqulro only a few hours. "

WASHINGTON , Jan. IS. Arrangements
are making for the entertainment of I'rcsl-
dcnt Dole o ? Hawaii ca a scale befitting his
rank as the chief magistrate of a friendly
nation. It has been decided that ho .shall bo
regarded an the nation's guest and that our
government * dall ) bear the expense of his
entertainment v hllo In Washington. The
formal visit | , ald to President Dele yesterday
by General pbafter of San Francisco was
not by direction lOf t'.io authorities at Wash
ington , but it Is said the call was required
by the army i emulations , although In making
It the general displayed a faculty of remem
brance that Is vvcll regarded by the officials
hcio , who IviJ no opportunity to provide for
a reception.
1'icsldcnt Meltlnley has decided to have
the olllclal tour of the Hawaiian president
begin at Chtcagfl , and at that "point In his
overland toun hu vslll bo met by the repre
sentatives of thiv president and or 1'ie United
States govern nwut This Is brought about
by the fact,1 > th-it the representatives would
not have tlrao 'to roach San Francisco before
the devarluro of President Dole for the east
The personal representative of tlio president
will be Thifd AssUtant Secretary ot State
Thomas W Crldler. the army will bo repre
sented by Major H. O. S HeUttcid , assistant
adjutant general , and the navy probably by
Lieutenant Commander T. S. Phelps , now
In this city on leave of absence , the last
named being personally acquainted with the
distinguished vUitor and peaking thu
Kanaka language fluently. Tlni three rep
resentatives of the president and of the
government will go to Chicago as soon an
they receive notice of the probable arrival
there of President Dole and escort him to
When ho arrives here he will be quartered
at the Arlington , where LI Hung Chang ,

'In support of Oi'a position that the Islandn

WASHINGTON , Jan. IS. ( Special Telegram -
gram ) Some jears ago the Interior depart
ment discovered that the Homestako Mining
company of the IJIack Hills had beeci raidIng -
Ing government timber. A special Inspector
and other officials were sent out to Investi
gate , nnd the result was that a bill aggre
gating eomo $500,000 er $000.000 was bub-
mlttod to tills successful corporation and
settlement asked. The company objected
strenuously to pajing any such sum , and. In
fact , the claim was made that there wns
113 Indebtedness ta the government. The
recite ? diuggcd along , but at last a clay for
bringing the case Into court was finally
fixed , and February 1 , 18DS , was named as
ttat day. It Is said at the Interior depart
ment that a conviction is so conclusive that
unless the Jury Is tampered with thcie must
bo a verdict in favor or the United States.
Ex-Senator Moody of South Dakota Is at
torney for the Homestako company. Ho ar-
ilved in the city rjomo days ago and regis
tered at the nbbitt house , and alongside his
name Is that ot Superintendent Grlcr of the
Homestako mine. ScnaUr Moody told The
lieo the day of .ils arrival , that Mi prin
cipal business hero was In connection with
an extension of tlmo for holding back the
proclamation of Cleveland In regard to forest
teservatlons. 11 was learned today that Su-
peilntendent Gelor and ex-Senator Moody
have been engaged In trying to bring about
a comnrjmho between the United States
end tlio Hompstako Mining company. They
have offered a very large sum to settle the
dispute concerning the timber alleged to
have been taken from government lands.
The whole matter Is before the secretary
of the Intel lor for his consideration , nnd he
will ccnsult vvltji the attorney general before
referring the subject to the commlbskner
of the genccal land ofilce. Later Mr. Herr
mann will bo asked for his views before a
final agreement to the tender Is given.

WASHINGTON. Jan. 18. Mr. Galllngcr of
.ho committee on public health and national
] uarantlno today ireported favorably to the
senate a bill providing for an Investigation of
ho subject of leprosy and It was passed.
Mr. Vest of the finance committee reported
ho Teller resolution , whlcn. waa reported by
hat committee to-Jay , and gave orders lhat
10 would call li up nt an early day ,
The vole In the senate committee on
liianee on Die Teller resolullou was pro-
eded by a discussion which was generally
lartlclpatcd in by the members of the
lommlttce. The general lenor of Ihe dls-
tisslon was along Iho same lines as lhat
) f a week ago , the republicans contending
: hat the resolution was useless and would
) e devoid of results , and the democrats and
heir allies taking the opposite position. The
epubllcans especially deprecated the aglta-
lou of the financial question nl Iho present
line , saying there was no effort and likely
o bo none to pass a general financial
ncasuro through the senate committing Ihe
louniry moro deflnlluly to the gold Eland-
To this the democrats replied by citing
ho cffortt , of Secretary Gage and ex-Senator
MmuncUs to have congress tale ; up Iho qucj.
Ion la a way which looked lo placing the
ountry definitely upon a gold basis They
ontended lhat It was the evident purpose
if the administration to secure legislation
n tlio Intereot of the single standard when-
ver opportunity afforded and u vowed their
lurpcuo of securing a declaration In favor
f a double standard tuih as was
iroprued In this resolution , If
iQsilblo to do BO , In order
o ehovv that there had been uo change ta

ot the flnanleat question at this tlmo , the
blumo Minuld bo ptAoevl upan the republican

When porno of the re-publican sc-natorn
floret reminded that they hail \o'od for the
resolution when presented by Hon. Stanley
Matthews twenty > rars ARO they admitted
such to teethe faol , 'but ' taM In explanation
of their present n It Undo that conditions had
changed Senator Wolcott did not vote
with his republican friends , but heartily
supjwtod Iho reaolullon , saying ho would
vote for It every tlmo It came up.
tlio Monetary
Coiiiinlinlnii Currriii-y Hill.
WASHINGTON , Jan. IS. Secretary Gage
proceeded today with the currency hearing
before the house committee on banking and
currency. Toda's hearing took n general
range wllh n. vlow to developing Mr , Gage's
views on general financial qucatlota , and hlj
Judgment on various measures , Including his
one ! , for currency revision. Chairman
Walker In a series of questions sought to
show that the guaranty required lu the Qago
bill and the monetary hill on unsecured cir
culation was too great , thus Impeding an
onerous burden en the banks far beyond the
losses which experience had shown would
occur. Mr. Gage Mid that the oifety fund
In his bill was placed at a point which ho
regarded sate , and If found lee high It could
bo reduced.
Hx-Secrelary Falrchlld ealil In a step of
this character It had been deemed brut to
make the guaranty too greaUralhor than too
Mr. Gage elated kr this connection his ob
jection to the plan of Imposing mutual re
sponsibility on all banks as propeoad In the
monolary commission bill. It would bo an
unfortunate requirement , he felt , as U would
operate to keep desirable baks from enter
ing the system , and Imposing on themselves
respceslblllty for outside banks. The banker ,
as n rule , did not want to be responslb'.o for
IOUSM other than his own. Whether the
guaranty was lo be by a 2 per cert tax on
tanks , as ho provided , or by a mutual guar
anty from all LanKs , as Iho commission pro-
\lded , or some other adequate plan , Mr.
Gage oalil ho was willing to concede this de
tail oo long as some safe security for the
redemption of the hank notes was provided
The commltleo occupied the afternoon
going over the Walker currency bill. Chair
man Walker sought to show that of the
currency bills pending his stood the bent
chance of passage , that It vvaa least ob
jectionable because , while accomplishing
similar icsults , It did not Haunt before the
minority Inlcrests Iho direct preamble
declarations to the gold unit standard. It
would , ho said , absolutely relieve the gov
ernment of having anything to do wllh the
cuircut tcdcmpllon of money of any nalure ,
and from keeping anything except an or
dinary exchequer balance aa In n private
Secretary Gage referring to the fitcitemcn
of put poses in the Gage bill as to "fixlni
the gold standard more firmly , " briefly ex
plained why It was best to Incorporate tha
declaration. The obligations of the Unltei
States , ho said , are payable In coin. Then
Is a deep dispute ns to what that moans
On the ono side of congress It Ls said tin
government can pay In silver ; the othe ;
sava gold only , otherwise the govornmen
Is guilty of bad faith and dishonesty oa t (
obllgallons. So long as there Is doubt then
will bo a constant prcssuio to open the waj
for the payments In silver , and the conton
tlon was that hotter assurance of maintain
Ing the gold btandard than now exist fihouli
bo given the country. So , the sccrcUrj
thought , It was tlio wisest plan to make th <
positive and unequivocal declaration as t (
the purposes of the bill.
Secretary Gage and ex-Secretary Fair
child will be before the committee ngali :

monetary commission will be pointed out In
literature to bo prepared upon this special
subject. General Warner before the meetIng -
Ing said that his health had suffered very
much of late by overwork , and It was his lu-
lenllon lo spend the ne\t few months in
Georgia. Ho did not at present feel physi
cally able to continue the work In hand and
Eomo time dining the present scbslon ho
would ask Iho cxecullvo committee to name
