Mr. Hawley (rep,, Conn ) thatit shall be ascer- tained exactly how muck eaoh smator In worth,

id whether the fact that he ia not a pauper haa nything to do with his votes. Mr Dubola (rep, Idaho) offered tho follow- itf resolution on which he said he would ad- ress the senate to-morrow ^1

was laid before the eeuat*, and Mr. Shenaan poke against it as causing a great deal of un- eoeiiary labor and «ipen» to the depart- lent The senator could find all the luforma .on he wanted In public documents To a question by Mr Teller Mr. Sherman ro- lled that tbe anticipation ot interest had ocen authorized by law, and was not a mere mttor of custom After further discussion the resolution, on lotion of Mr Quay, was laid oil the table "OILS, £T, nays, ID At 1 10 p m the repeal bill was, on motion f Mr VoorUeea, taken up There was some uestlon as to what had become ot Mr Stew- rt's resolution on which he spoke yesterday ndthe presiding officer (Mr Harris) ruled hat on objection yesterday by Mr Wash- urne, tho resolution had gone to the calendar hen Mr Stewart informed Mr. Washburno hat tho objection would not prevent him re- ewlag tho resolution and going on with his emarks Mr Quay, however, Indicated an Ejection to gHlmr Mr Stewart an opportunity 0 open his attack on the president'of the 'lilted States "1 waa discussing the conduct of the presl- ent," was Mr. Stewart's amendment of Mr uay'a pbrase Tho question of the right of a senator to arm out the floor in that way was raised by Mr Faulkner, and the chair ruled In that ense A colloquy on this point was carried on for ome time, and was finally interrupted by the residing officer, who declared that It was out 1 order and that he was perfectly satisfied with the answer he had given to Mr. Faulkner

he senator from Nevada (Mr. Stewart) had he floor by virtue of tbe fact that he had been ecognUed when tbe bill was taken up to-day Mr Stewart yielded the floor to Mr Perkins rep , Cal) who addressed the senate It was Is tlrst speech in the body except when he renounced an eulogy on the lite and character f his predecessor, Mr Stanford His voice ?as full and clear, and his speech attracted at- entlon Mr Perkins closed his speech at 1 80 and as congratulated upon the success of his abut Tben Mr Stewart resumed the floor. After the senator had spoken some time, at iis request, Mr Mitchell read an article from San Francisco paper When the reading

&B finished Mr Palmer *aaked whether it waa onslatent with the proper relations that " lould exlat between the president and the nate thus to have charges against the execu- ve read In the senate Mr Stewart replied that It was consistent or him as a senator to defend the senate against what the press regarded aa "a rebuke" administered to It by the president "Let his rlends." he added angrily, "deny that he haa elicited patronage to control the senate; let lem deny that he has attempted to control egislatlon, let them make It clear to the ountry that patronage has not been given to hose who supported hla measures. Let them iake It clear to the country bow the sentiment t congress has been changtd Let them iake It clear how the overwhelming majority blob had been claimed herein favor ot free olnage has been changed Into a monometallic majority Let them maUo It clear that patron-

age haa been given to all democrats, without

igard to their position on the ailver question 'hose charges have become too common, and,

they are uot true they should be denied." Mr Palmer (In marked contrast of manner oMr Stewart'a)—" Will the senator himself Ddlcate a single instance In which the presl- ent has employed his putronago to control a enator or mombor of the house''

"Why, my dear sir," Mr Stewart exclaimed,

these things are charged every day In the ubhc press uml let you deny thorn If you m " "Deny what? "Deny that patronage was given to those who re supporting the administration measure." ' If the senator himself," Mr Palmer quietly erslsted, "will, on his own responsibility as a enaior, make a charge of that kind, I will con- oss It or I will deny U But the Idea that the rlends of the president or the president him- ilf should formally deny all these charges gainst him in the newspapers is absurd.

would bo the value of denial? I am call

ng attention to the strange attitude whlob the enator occupies In repealing on this floor barges against the president for which tho enator himself will not be responsible " Mr Stewart broke in "I will answer These barges have been rande in the public press They have been made In the administrative or-

ana, which have also made the demand that he senate >tiuaU vote tlrst and debate after- •ards It Is claimed In these papers that the

power of the administration haa been used to uasb this bill, and. we see before us the re

or free coinage malt away I have not sped led particulars I speak of grand roaultt And et any man deny that the power of patronage baa been abused Let ua (he exclaimed, aa if a udden Inspiration had cvme upon him) have e ull investigation "

Will the senator," Mr Palmer again asked,

'kindly namo a single senator whom ha knows

boll«vea to have been Influenced by the avors of tho president?"

'Too senator from Illinois desires to make personal matter of it Oh, pshaw [Laugh erl "If I believed," said Mr. Palmer, "what tu«

senator asserts, 1 would give the names of the senators Implicated "

"Will the senator." Mr Stewart asked, "rote or a resolution giving to a committee' the power to Investigate*"

'I will," Mr. Palmer replied, "whenever the senator himself, in hla place, makes a chargi against any senator or any member of tho house of representatives "

"I do not want to confine the investigation to one. I want to take In all "

"Whenever the senator bring* Information or charge agatnat any Individual In the«ena,te X will vote for an Investigation "

But Mr Stowart would not name the man, and the colloquy oohtlnned until he beearae an voyed.

"I decline to he Interrupted," he a&

each questions. I wilt not make personal eaanes, because the air Is full ot them." "Yes, they are very windy They are op

mttoh so they blow down upon a good many senators and members " [Laughter.]

Then Mr Stewart went back to hla newspa- per extracts After that he put Into requisi- tion a speech from Mr. Webster during tbe Jackson administration, and a report from Cal- hounon executive patronage in 1835.

Mr Stewart yielded the floor, but without

concluding all that he had to say.

Mr Morgan rose to a personal explanation

Alluding to the article from a New York paper which had been read in the senate Imputing to himself personal and political enmity to Mr Cleveland, he saf d.

"I am very happy to state that between tbe President and myself there exist tbe most cordial personal relations They have always existed and I hope they ever will, for I esteem and prlzo him very highly in all personal re apeots and in his public career I think that the history of Mr Cleveland is a history which illustrates some of the higher properties of the American character. I differ with Mr Cleve- land in some of his views of public polity. I do not think that I differ with him on any questions that are vital to the country or vital to the democratic party. In

the enforcement of the principles on

which we have always so happily agreed we maydiJTer I may differ on measures of pol- icy, but only on measures of policy In fact, I

doubt very much whether the differences be tween the president and myself arc of any very Important character, if I understand what are really hla opinions and his hopes in rela- tion to the present Imbroglio In which we are involved "

With this statement Mr Morgan said he felt

just!tied in saying that lu this particular arti- cle the paper played the part simply of mis- chief maker Its ntatements were simply and

maliciously false

Mr Voorhaes had also something to say in

relation to the president He was very glad to hear the remarks of the senator from Ala- bama in regard to the assault which had been made upon the president in the last two days He desired to account for the attitude of sl- lonot observed on tbe democratic side ot the chamber In the face of assault It was that it

had not been thought necessary to say a single word In defense of Mr Cleveland

from the time he was born in New

Jersey up to tbe present hour On

hla Bide of the chamber and, he tiad reason to believe, on the other aide of the chamber, and all over the country Mr Cleveland's defense had been fully made by the Am erlcan people themselves His gnat and powerful career disarmed all such aisaults as had been made upon him Whatever the fault the senator

from Nevada mi^ht have found in Mr Cleve- land's career the people had not seen It in tbat way. Whatever of criticism the senator of Nevada might have Indulged in the American people had not shared that criticism with him Nobody was perfect Human nature waa In-

firm, The loftiest of characters were not ta- fallablo. But he ventured to aay that in American history Grovar Cleveland, his char acter bis achievements, hli honor, his patri- otism and his abilities would stand in the tore- most lino of all the assaults which had been mado Whether senators differed from Mr Cleveland or agreed with him, no-

body failed to recognize his stal

wurt and powerful character and his

high integrity He hoped that this little trlb ute would be taken an sufficient to account for the fact that the democratic side of the cham- ber would not feel called upon to enter upon any defense of the president unless something far more Important was charged against him thtfn had been charged up to this time

The senate, and 6 p m after a short uxecu

tlvo session, adjourned until to morrow at 11 a m


On motion of Mr Grosvenor, a joint resolu-

tion was passed authorizing the commission ers of tho Chattanooga National park to use atone and gravel on the grounds for tho pur- pose of making foundations for monuments

Mr Smith asked for the consideration of a

resolution providing for tho printing ot the bearings held by tho committee on ways and means

At the suggestion of Mr Wilson the resolu-

tion went over until to morrow.

Mr Talbott asked consent for the immediate

consideration of a resolution requesting tho committee on banking and currency, after tho disposal of the federal election repeal bill, to report the McLauren bill

Mr Warner objected In the aecond morning hour (tho first being

unproductive of results) Mr Talbott moved that the house go Into committee ot the whole for the consideration of the bill to remit the penalties on tho designers ot the Vesuvius, but by consent the bill was la Id over until the llth of October The house then, in accordance

with the special order, proceeded to the con aide rat ton of the Federal eloattons repeal law and was addressed by Mr Tucker, who opened tbe debate

Mr. Bros!us (rep, Pa.) congratulated the

gentleman from Virginia on his able speech, and he desired to emulate hie example in one particular He would be glad to discuss the measure from a nonpartisan point of view

He believed that underneath tho flowing

stream of our politics there was a patriotism and to that patriotism he appealed to-day He then spoke against the proposed repeal. He

laid down the propositions that the federal constitution was not the creature of the states, but was created by the people, tbat the power and authority conferred upon the government were operative lu all tho states and over all the people; that the cation was clothed with ample power to enforce the constitution

Several other members sp*oke to the resolu-

tion sod finally, the lack Of a quorum apparent the house adjourned

The Emperor's Gracious Efforts at Re-

conciliation and Offer oi a Castle

for tbe Ex-Chancellor's Use

Curliy Declined.

BERLIN, Sept. 37.—Herr Alois, an

artist who is a close friend ot the Bis- marck family, arrived here from Kls- singen last evening. lie gives an un- •expectedly discouraging report of the prince's condition. The most formid- able of Bismarck's maladies have been ecute pneumonia. The disease was

not discovered by the physicians un- til the patient's condition had be- come critical. The physicians

and family are exceedingly anxious and watch Bismarck constantly, as, al- though convalescing, he is very weak and quite liable to a relapbe, which must prove fatal According to Herr

Alois' report, tho old man seems like a wreck. His splendid frame has shrunk and his flesh has fallen off until his clothes hang in folds Hi) appears as

if fully a head shorter than before his illness. The princess is strongly op- posed to removing him to Friederichs- ruhe. He, "however, is anxious to go home

Emperor William took his special

tram yesterday afternoon at Schonen- brun for Berlin, after having lunched with Emperor Francis Joseph. He bade the Austrian emperor a cordial farewell, and as the train drew out of the station cried out: "Auf weider- seheu.

Kmperor millam I

Count Lohandorf, the emperor's ad- <

jutant, returned yesterday from Kis- smgen, where he was trying to arrange for an interview between the emperor and llibmarck in the near future. Bis- marck's physicians, the princess, Count Herbert and his brother-in-law, Count Rantzan, wish to have the meeting de- ferred until the prince slmll regaiu his strength Nothing has been done to-

wards fixing definitely a date for the interview.

Last evening it was possible, for the

first time, to obtain the text of Em- peror William's telegraphic correspond- ence with Prince Itism.irck From

Quens the emperor sent on September 19 the following message 1 o Kissmpren "I have, to my great reg'-et, only just learned that your highness has gone re- cently through a somewhat serious ill- ness. At the same time I have received the news, thank God, that you are now making steady progress toward recovery. I, therefore, beg to express to you my great satisfaction with this encouraging development Being anx-

ious to asbist in thoroughly completing your recovery and establishing your health, I beg your highness, in view of the unfavorable climate and location of Friederichsruhe, as well as Varsin, to take up your quarters for the winter in one of my castles in central Ger many. Afer conferring with my court marshal I shall communicate to your highness the name of the castle which will be most suitable to your pur- pose."

.Prince Ititmarck

Prince Bismarck's reply to this di»-

pateh was1

"With the deepest respect I thank

your majesty for the precious expres- sion of your sympathy in my illness and your satisfaction with the more recent improvement of my health I

thank your majesty no lees for , your gracious desire to assist in furthering my recovery by providing for me a residence under the mo^t favorable climatic conditions. My respectful

gratitude for your majesty's gracious intent is in no way diminished by the conviction that should it be

God's will that I remain in my

health, my recovery would be quicker in my family circle and in the sur- roundings to which I have now been so long accustomed. My complaint be- ing of a nervous nature, I share the opinion of my doctor* that if I spend the winter in my present surroundings and occupations my mode of lif« will be the most likely means of promoting recovery. I agree -with my doctor

also in the opinion that the disturb- ance of my nervous system, which might result from a sojourn in strange surroundings and new associations such as would be designed as your majesty's gracious wishes, is, in view of my advanced age, to be avoided. Schweninger will take the earliest op- portunity to put in writing these opin- ions, which I share with him."

The Metuta Nourichten, in Munich,

•ays that on Monday Bismarch aeut ten diapachea to the emperor, and that the hopes of the German emperor for a reconciliation are likely to be fulfilled. Little else is discussed in the newspa- pers than a meeting tatween the em- peror and the ex-chancellor.

The report that Chancellor Von Ca-

privi is trying to prevent the reconcil- iation is denied by nil Informed per- sons here. The chancellor is believed to favor a reconciliation, and is dolrur what he can by his advice to the em- peror to accomplish It The Idea that the reconciliation may lead to Bis

IjTOiAKAi'OLis, Ind , Sept. 27 —Tho

ittt te board of health filed its report o{ the smallpox investigation at Munclo with the governor yesterday morning. Secretary Metcalfe haul m it that tho board favors aiding by the state e domic fund at Muncie not to exceed »800 per week He continues "Wo

feel that this aid should be given cAuse the officials of tho city present facts and figures and say~tlut they cnnuot obtain the money to pay ffua: and nurses, which are necefasary ajjents to keep the disease within control and prove nt its Bpreail to other towns and cities of the state.

"Unless all cases arc carefully qnar-

anitined and infected houses disin- fected the disease is bound to spread, and if the city of Muncie should raise the quarantine, \\hich it has now claced on cabes and the disinfected. points, for the want of sufficient means to maintain them, there can be no question but what the disease would spread and the state authorities oa blamed for it if financial aid is re fused."

Resolutions passed by the board ap-

prove the quarantine set vice, the burn- ing of garbage and other methods adopted by the Muncio authorities to suppress the epidemic. The governor has the communication under consider- ation and will give the city of Muncio an answer the last of the week.

There Is No Need

Of reminding you of the depression in trade You are well aware of that. But in this connection we wish to remind you of this fact, that in times like these CASH is an important fac- tor. Orders placed early by mer- chants for fall merchandise were almost universally countermanded. This threw enormous stocks on title manufacturers' hands, of which they had to dispose of at a great sacrifice for rea.dy CASH. We had the CASH and bought later, and as a result we own our Fall and Winter stock fully 35 to 40 per cent, cheaper than il we had been forced to purchase on time. No further argument is needed to convince you that, buying cheap, we can also sell you cheap.

Our Fall and Winter Stock

is now in, and we cordially invite your inspection of it, and feel cer- tain that we can convince you of tile truth of the above.
