At $1.00 Ineffectual Efforts of McBllllIu to Secure a Vote on It—Horgan Introduces an Amendment to His Silver Beftolutlon, Supplemental to the Act of 1800—Other Matters of General Interest. •WASHINGTON, April fi.—Mr. Morgan offered an amendment to his silver resolutions, which was ordored to be printed. It instructs the finance committee to report a bill supplementary to an act of .Tuly 14, 1800, which shall provide for the coinage of gold and silver bullion on equal terms, na to. each metal, and for the issue of treasury notes in denominations not to exceed $500, and upon the same terms and conditions as in the act of 1800, upon all gold and silver bullion that the United States may ac quire by purchase, and that any depositor who shall deposit in the treasury gold or silver bullion in quantities of not less than 8100 in value, product of mines in the United States which has not been previously coined, shall at his option, receive coin certificates for the same at mint value of such bullion.

The House* WASHINGTON, April 5 — McMillin 1 moved that the house go into committee of the whole on the free wool bill, and pending that moved that all debate on the first section be limited to one hour. This met with opposition from the Republicans, who, while th,cy were willing to take a vote immediately, thought that no limitation should be placed upon debate. Mr. McMillin was willing to extend the time somewhat, but insisted that the debate must be limited. The Republicans under the lead of Mr. Burrows of Michigan began to fight for delay. Mr. McMillin withdrawing his modification renewed his motion limiting debate to one hour. Burrows was immediately on his feet to make an amendment, but the speaker recognized McMillin to demand the previous question. Then Burrows moved a recess until 4 o'clock which was supplemented by Payne, of New York, with an amendment for a recess until 5 o'clock. Thus a regime of filibustering"was inaugurated. The Republicans refrained from voting both on division and by tellers, thereby breaking a quorum and compelling the Democrats to order the yeas and nays The silver Senators. WASHINGTON, April 5.—As stated by Senator Teller yesterday, in the course of his colloquy with Senator Sherman, the silver senators are determined to express their views upon the subject of silver in the open senate, and there appears to be no way to stop them. The resolution offered today by Morgan as an amendment to the set of resolution which were yesterday placed on the calender, while not introduced by Mr. Morgan with the intention of causing further debate, according to his own statement, may still serve for at least one day as a basis for any speeches that the Bilver men desire to make in the senate. It would simply be necessary toeall up this or any other resolution introduced the day before and proceed to discuss it. Mr. Wolcott, through Senator Teller, has given notice of his intention to speak upon the silver question to-morrow. appearance, being covered with mud to the depth of fully an inch.

CKNTUKTON, N. J., April t,.— After over two wcoks of indescribable agonies, and during which her condition was more than once regarded beyond human aid, Miss Kizzie Peacock, the victim of the bite of a pet cat, has been pronounced out of danger and on a fair road to recovery. Her case has attracted considerable attention among the medical profession, and eminent surgeons of Philadelphia, Trenton and New York have journeyed to this village for the purpose of familiarizing themselves with the facts in the case. About three weeks ago Miss Peacock, who is a daughter of a wealthy farmer, and a petite brunette of very attractive appearance was visiting some friends at Palatine, a small town a few miles from this place. Among the possessions of the Garrison family, of whom she was a guest, is eat, of the feminine gender, marked with black and white stripes very much alter the fashion of a tiger, and weighing in the neighborhood of twenty pounds. Miss Peacock had visited the Garrison family many u time before-, and Miss Pussy and herself were consequently on terms of what might bo regarded as close acquaintanceship; so much sc that at times there were great carry ings-on between the petite brunette and the striped feline of the feminine gender. On this particular occasion, however, the latter was evidently in a bad humor, for whon Miss Peacock undertook to insert her fingers in her fur and tickle her gently in the ribs the cat immediately showed her teeth and proceeded to insert them in the thumb of her erstwhile friend. For this breach of good manners puss received a severe slap which sent her a flying from the room. Nothing was thought of the matter until two or three days later, whon the young girl's right arm began to swell and the pain became unbearable. Physicians who were summoned found that an abcess had formed on the right shoulder and was rapidly extending to tho breast. Several days of ilelerium followed, and her arm becainc swollen to twice its usual size. Three distinct abcesses were formed, each being removed by the knife. The operations were very severe, but the good constiution of the girl stood her in good stead and t<r;doy the attendant physicians say tha_t with proper care and treatment she will undoubtedly recover. The feline is still a member of the Garrison household, and although under pressure, she has submitted to the inspection of numerous members of the medical profession, and who 4mvo pried open her mouth, examined her teeth and secured-portions of her sali- vu for analytical purposes, she still appears to be clothed in' her right mind, ind her owners, who have regarded her as a pet for many years, emphatically refuse to comply with the popular dc« mand that her life shall bey Offered up as a sacrifice f6i? the pain and suffering she has caused to the petite brunette from Ceutreville. i Returning to Chill. WASHINGTON, April 5.;—The. Chilian minister to the United States, Senor Montt, accompanied by his wife, said farewell to the capital to-day, and left for New York. Thence they will sail to-morrow for Paris, and after a tour of tho continent will proceed to Chili, Minister Montt having been elected a member of the new congress. During the past few days the minister and his wife have been overwhelmed with evidences of the general regret which is felt over their departure from Washington. ' Benutor Peffer Talks Politics. NEW YOBK, April 5.—Senator Peffer of Kansas, accompanied by his two sons, is hero visiting his old home near Carlisle, Pa. When asked by a Times reporter yesterday as to the next Republican nomination for president, the senator said, speaking of Harrison "With Blaine out of the way he will get the nomination, and there will be little opposition to him in tho conven tion. While many are opposed to the president because he has not been more partisan, the opposition is not concentrated and his followers have, an organization that will nominate him easily.' "Senator, how about the Democratic nomination. . What are Cleveland's prospects?' 1 "They are first class out in the west. Many prefer a western man, yet I believe the Democrats will name an eastern man, and that he will come from New York and it does not look like Hill either. I would not be surprised if Cleveland should be nominated," and he added in an undertone, "if the Democracy drops their fight and are united, he will defeat Harrison." "What will be the issue this campaign?" "The financial question, of course The west is decidedly in favor of free silver and naturally in favor of tariff reform, but that is rather an old issue The issue will be the money question A Shower of Mud. KANSAS CITY , April 5.— The through express on the Union Pacific road which reached this city at 7 o'clock this morning, had a most remarkable TO-DAY'S ELECTIONS. Municipal and Township Officers Elected in Illinois. MINOR ELECTIONS IN KANSAS. The Aust-rnllnn Ballot Doing Used for the S'lrst Time la Illinois—A Close Contest In Chicago for Aldermen—The Campaign In Rhode Island Closes To-Nlght—IIc-th Sides Confident or victory. CHICAGO, April 5.—To-day was election day in every county of Illinois under township organization. Everywhere the Australian system of voting prevailed. The weather generally was cloudy but pleasant. In Chicago, owing to the recent boodle investigation, interest centered chiefly in the aldermanic contest, which in some wards was the fiercest ever known here. Alderman Roth, whose action in turning over to a newspaper $1,000 paid us bribe money to him as a supposed member of a ring led to the indictment of nine of his fellow iildermen, was up for re-election and much curiosity was manifested as, to the result. Alderman Edward F. Cullerton and B. P. Uurke, two leaders of the city council for years past, were fought at the polls all day withextia- ordinary earnestness. The outcome in each case is being eagerly watched for by thousands of interested people. Elections hi Kansas To-Day. KANSAS CITT, April 5.—A city ticket will be elected here to-day, with four members of the upper and ten members of the lower house. The election s passing off quietly and a large vote s being polled. At 2 o'clock the indications point to tho probable election of Cowherd, the Democratic nominee for mayor. The result cannot of course, be positively stated at this hour, but Cowherd has polled a lorge vote in many of the Republican wards, and if tho balance of the registered vote is cast at tho same ratio, ho has defeated Davenport. In Kansas the elections are being held in all first and second class cities for councilmen, members of the school boards and aldermen. The number of women who are entitlcd'to vote, is less than at any election since tho passage of the municipal act. The resultof the city elections in Kansas will have no political significance, us all municipal officers with the exception of councilmen hold over until next year. THE SWEATING SYSTEM, Congressional Investigation Now In Progress In Chicago. CHICACIO, April 5.—Almost the first person to appear to-day in tho federal court room, where tho congressional committee was investigating the "sweating" system, was Bishop Fellows of the Reformed Episcopal church. "1 am not here to give testimony," he said, "but to listen to what the witnesses have to say." Congressman Sherman Hoar of Massachusetts, examined the witnesses today. They were mostly from the labor unions. The members were conspicuous by their absence. On the ground of unwarranted Interference with private business, tho few, who BO far have appeared, have objected strenuously to the proposal that congress should enact a law requiring makers to tag every garment so that there will be no difficulty in distinguishing the garments made in "sweat holes " Manufacturers generally contended that the danger of contagious diseases being communicated through clothing coming from such dens was obviated by tho usual "pressing," the theory being that the heat from the flat irons was enough to kill the germs. served Out Their Sentences. JKFFKBBON CITY, MO., April 5.—Fred Wittrock, alias "Jim Cummings," r and W. W. llaight, the "Frisco" express robbers.'were released from the penitentiary, their sentences having been completed under the three-fourths law. A Cyclone In Illinois.

The men elected comprise our best busincBs men and are among our heaviest tax-payers. Municipal Klectlon In Chicago. CHICAGO, April 5.—The aldermanic elections are In progress to-day. Thirty-four aldermen or one-half of the city council are to be elected. The Australian ballot system Is beliig 'employed, and as « result there will be less partyism in casting votes than at any previous election in Chicago. In numerous wards*tho long list of "candidates by petition" indicates tokens of revolt'from party dictation. Quito a number of tho aldermanic candidates are under suspicion as having been more or less mixed up with the recent boodle investigation. Election nt Leavenworth. LBAVENWORTH, Kan., April 5.—Tho municipal election is in progress today, but the women are taking less port in it than in previous years. This is probably due to the fact that it is not a mayoralty election. The number of women voters registered is 1,240, or 500 less than last year. Of the total nearly 500 are of the colored race. The others are school teachers interested in the school board elections, women suffragists and friends or relatives of the candidates. the result which each asserts to bo% complete or partial victory for itesido. The prospect is, however, none the ..less very uncertain ami all sorts of wagerji are being made on the. result of the contest. lh\t only the counting of •-. the votes can give any definite, decided : conception as to how the fight will end. Secretary Trney, who spoke in this city lost night, left for Washington this morning. To-night closes the hottest campaign known in years. Severe 8torm* lb Iowa* I)K» MOINBS, la., April 5.—Reports received here to-day from points In the western and central counties: show very heavy rainfalls and damage. The. storms seem to have been heaviest at Guthrie, accompanied by hail which with the strong wind broke the windows and did other damage. The streets were covered with layers of large stones which the heavy • rain following swept into huge drifts, which acted as dams and caused a flood of water. It is not known, however, how extensive this fall was, but it is feared it extended over consider- , able of territory. Farmers were just beginning to sow soring wheat, but the present storms will delay work on the farms for several days. Farther north the rivers are rising. Tho Des Moines river at this point lias risen nearly a foot dnring the last twclvo hours. Some damage to railroad property is reported, mainly on the branch roads. Heavy Losses of Cattle. GI.'THIUE, O. T., April 5.—The cold suaps and storms of the past two weeks, added to the late spring, hnn played havoc with cattle grazing on Indian lands in this and the Indian Territory. In Osage, Pawnee and Otoo reservations the number pastured this winter has been much smaller than usual, but a large number have died and some of tho smaller cattle owners are ruined. In tho Chickasaw nation the loss has been fully 20 per cent, and In the Creek country, hundreds have died and many more arc dying vovery day. In the great Comanche and Kiowa reservations the loss haH been greatest. Men coming in from there report having counted thousands of cattle carcasses along the trail and say the cattle are still dying very fast. Tho loss shore is estimated at from 30 to 40 per cent.

CIUOAOO, April 5.—A resume of the city elections in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and North Dakota shows that in a majority of places local issues took precedence over politics, and that when the party lines were drawn, the Republicans had tlie best of it. The Democrats generally, where successful, secured large majorities. In most places in Kansas, the women's vote was very light. A Heavy Vote In Milwaukee, MH.WAUKBK, Wis., Abril 5.—The municipal election to-day is bringing out a heavy vote, the total registration being over fifty thousand, or an incrcuso of over seven thousand on last year.
