The Senate parsed the bill providing: 51,873,000 for the early completion of the work for the improvement of the mouth of the Columbia river Oregon, and Sio.OOO for the early com! pletionof the canals and locks of the cascades of the Columbia river, Oregon At 2 o'clock the Vice-President laid before the Senate as the "unfinished business-' the elections bill and Senator Pasco (Fla.) took the floor to make an arg-ument against it. He g-ave notice of an amendment which he would offer to punish bribery by tie payment of money or by the promise of procuring employment for Voters andtopun- isji the use of pay envelopes intended to influence working-men. He yielded to Senator Hoar (Mass 1 who also gave notice of amendments which he proposed to offer to the bill the effect of them being to gi re to the judge only the power to determine whether Federal supervision of an election is necessary and to give to the accounting officers of the Treasury the power to audit the accounts of siiper- visors as in other cases. Senator .Pasco again at 0:10 yielded to Senator Wolcott (Col.), who moved an adjournment. Senator Frye (Me.) demanded the yeas and nays, and the result of the vote was: Yeas, 27; nays, 33 Senators Stewart (Nev.) and Wolcott being the only Republicans voting-yea. Senator Washbnm (Minn.), who voted T^ednesday night against taking np the elections bill, rejoined his party colleagues and voted no, as did Senator Plumb (Kan.), who was absent when the vote was taken Wednesday night. benator Pasco concluded his speech and was followed by Senators Hampton (S C.) and Reagan (Tex.) in opposition to the bill. At the conclusion' of Senator Reagan's speech a motion to table Senator Butler's (S. C.) amendment tliat the supervisors, canvassers and all election officers shall be regarded as ministerial and not as judicial officers was agreed to-yeas, 30; nays, 20 The amendment offered by Senator Faulkner (W. Va.) on the 17th of December was stated by Vice-President Morton to be the next question in order It proposes a substitute for' section 14 and to provide for the appointment by the court of a board of three persons in a Congressional district, to be known as the United States Board of Canvassers Senator Faulkner advocated his amendment and condemned the action of Republican Senators in stifling discussion by moving to lay Amendments on the table. Senator i auLcner spoke until 1:20 a. in. Senator Pasco a short time before directed the attention of the chair to the absence of a quorum, and as the call was bemg made Senators trooped into the chamber and proved that there were a few more present than needed to constitute a quorum. At the conclusion of Senator Faulkner's speech the absence of a quorum was an-ain brought to the attention of the chair The call of the roll showed that there were only thirty-six Senators present, only five of that number being Democrats. A motion was made by Senator Hoar, to compel. the attendance of absentees, but Senator Hams (Tenn.) made the point of order that the firs-; motion under the rules was to direct the sergeant-at-arms to request the attendance of absent Senators. The presiding officer (Senator Washburn) sustained the point of order, and ' Senator Hoar changed his motion accordingly. The motion was agreed to and a list of tlie absentees was furnished to' the scrgeaut-atarms. who dispatched messengers to.carry out the order of the Senate. The Democrats present were: Senators Cockrell, Faulkner Gorman, Harris and Pasco. Before the hst had been handed to the sergeant-at- arms five more Senators, all Republicans, had. answered, making the whole number present forty-one, or four less than a quorum. " The first of the absentees to obey the mandate of , the Senate was Senator Call, who came in at 2:40. Senators Daniels, Jones (Ark.l and Dawes (Mass.) were routed up, and a quorum. having thus been obtained Senator Gorman (Md.) moved to suspense with further proceedings -under the call.. This led to an interminable parliamentary wrangle, in which the quor-" um was again lost. The hours between 2 a. in. and 5-30 -were spent in idly waiting for a quorum, which did not come. At the latter hour the sergeant-at-arms reported, in writing the .success or failure of his visits to the residences of' senators. One of those reports stated that Senators Berry (Ark.) and Butler (S. C.) had been seen in the cloakroom,; and that the former, had stated -that he-would come when he got ready and the latter'had refused tb^-obey 'the summons. An informal colloquy made it appear'that there was. 110 power given to the sergeant-at^arms'to e'n- , and' 'Senator .uoiDii .->«.} remarked that if the Senate had given an order which it had no power enforce, the sooner the Senate got out of that ridiculous dilemma the better. • The appearance of Senator Geowr (Miss.), at 5:45 completed the quoru^n on the roll-call, and Senator Faulkner made another start in his . speec]l affainst the bill, although there were not twenty Senators within hearing of his voice. b At six o'clock Senator Gorman (Md ) made another effort to close the days session, and spoke of the futile efforts ever since midnight to get a quorum present He moved to dispense with all further proceedings under the call «o as not to disturb Senators who are indisposed, and to gi ve to tiie Senators present and the officers of the Senate a chance to go home and get then- breakfast, so as to get back at 10 0 clock. Senator Edmunds (Vt) ' demanded the yeas and nays on Senator Gorman s motion and the result was: Yeas 5, nays 23. As the vote showed tliat no quorum voted, the Senate found itself again in the same endless round on which .it had been revolving for "the last six hours. 1 he roll had to be called, and this time only thirty-four Senators answered to their names, showing that there had been more departing than arrivin^ Senators. At7:SO Senator -Daniels (Va.) moved an adjournment. Lost. After that there was another dead lull until 9'30 when a quorum having appeared Senator Faulkner proceeded with his remarks. Notwithstanding his louo- vin-il Senator Faulkner was ia good'vofce and spoke with earnestness. Senator iaulkner spoke until 10:30 a. m.. having held the floor for almost twelve hours. Senator Stewart (Nev.) has given notice of a motion to recommit the' elections bill, with instructions to the committee to report it back with a provision .for the election of members of Congress on days when no other elections are held in the several States OUR SEMI-ANNUAL Clearance Sale!

The circular congratulates advocates of woman suffrage upon the victory achieved in Wyoming, where equal rights to women are guaranteed by tne organic law, and declares there is every reason for the belief that statesmen are looking upon woman suffrao-e with an educational qualification as the safest and surest remedy for evils 'arising from the illiterate vote.

LOJTDO.V, Jan. 17.—Advices from Brazil describe a condition of affairs in that country which, if continued, threaten a serious crisis for the Government It seems that before the elections were held the country was beginning to tire of the pressure of a military "-overn- ment and the dictatorship of Da lonseca, the President of the Provisional. Government. Since the elections newspapers both for and opposed to the Government have charged President Da Fpnseca with seeking- to maintain the dictatorship. Kiots have taken place in some of the provinces, causing great excitement and endangering- the stability of the administration. These riots were caused by the action of the Governors of some of the States in attempting.to continue in force the laws made by the provincial Government • restricting the liberty of the press.. These laws were made by the provincial Government on December 29, ,1889, and March 29, I8QO. They were revoked by the new Government in November last. It is charged that, in spite of the repeal of these laws. President Da Fonseca has encouraged the ^Governors of several States to act in a very arbitrary manner, especially toward the. opposition press. In Perambuco several riots have occurred in which a number of persons were injured. In the State of Alogoas several policemen attacked the printing office of an opposing newspaper and demolished every thing. In Bahia there have been several rows between the army and the police in which many persons were wounded. The police and firemen who were involved in the rows had to be kept in their barracks, and the police 'duty was done by the army. Even in Kio de Janeiro it has been impossible, to maintain order. .The greatest outrage there was an attack on' the building of the Tribuna, one of the leading dailies. Telegrams from Para state that a mob attacked the house of the Governor there and threw stones at the windows: A passer-by was assaulted and fatally injured. The excitement is so great that the*'Fifteenth Regiment, • which was suspected of insubordination, was disarmed and transferred to another State. The Secretary of the Treasury tendered his resignation, but it was not accepted Arfested fofBTgtuny.
