NO VOTE..-: Failure to Finally Dispose of the Free Silver Coinage Bill. • Senator Jones Secures a Hearing for the Bill—House Concurs in Sen- ; j ate Amendment. ' \VASiiijrcTOX, Feb. 19.—There was an -unusually l:irge attendance of senators Tuesday morning, probably in view of the expected' contest over the'frefc silver coiuuge bill. • • Condition of'tho Treasury. A communication was presented uml- re'ud from the secretary of the treasury in' rcspon.so'to a resolution of. the sen-, atie, in which the secretary states the balance la the treasury to be, e.xchisi/e of Sr,j,000,000 gold reserve,' 899,373,28-k The secretary states it as his'opinion that tlic secretary of the' treasury ought to be permanently in- vufted wiLh tho authority to issue and soil short time bunds or other obligations for the purpose of meeting ordinary deficiencies, although he does not think there is any necessity, at this time for the exercise of such authority if it existed, lie is of opinion that for the next fiscal year the receipts will exceed the expenditures. A conference report on the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill was presented and agreed to. All the differences between the two houses on that bill ha've been arranged, except as to the appropriation of jtfOO.OOO to begin tlie construction of the cable to Hawaii, on which the conferees were unable to agree. A further conference was ordered on that item. Senator Wilson (rep., Wash.) was sworn in, completing the membership of SS. JOIICH Wins 11 Point. 'Senator Jones (dew., Ark.) moved that the senate proceed with the regular urdei—the-silver bill. Senator Hill (detti., X. Y.) objected to the displacing of the morning business.

' The bill having been taken up and read iu full Senator Jones, having charge of it, suggested that an hour be fixed for taking tho final vote, but Senator Halo objected and suggested that a long debate might endanger the appropriation bills and result in an extra session. ! Senator Jones said that there was not a member who did not know how every other member of it would vote. Therefore, discussion for an hour, or a day, or a week, would change nobody's conviction. Tho friends of the measure •were willing to put the matter to tho tost now without one word of debate. As Senator Jones could get no agreement as to tho time for taking a vote on tho silver bill, he submitted to the inevitable and gave notice that he would ask the senate to continue Tuesday's session until a vote wns reached. Vllna MalcoH a Speoch. Then Senator "Vilas (dcni., Wis.) took the floor and proceeded to deliver a long speech in which he reviewed the various ineffectual efforts made by President Cleveland to get congress to take notion to preserve the honor and credit of the nation. Senator Vilas reviewed the situation up to the time when the bond contract was made. Many would recall in that situation, he said, the prototype of history which had followed the decline of the national credit during- the civil war. It would remind • many of the commercial ruin, of the general financial devastation of the time. The people of the United States, he said, should never be called upon to sustain such an evil except in order to meet such a great contingency as was then imposed upon them to save their countr}-. He reminded senators how, in Is93, \vhen the repeal vof the purchasing clause of the Sherman act was under consideration, the country had been driven to the edge ol the abyss, and the eye of the country had looked over the precipice into which it might be about to fall. Then Senator Vilas came down to the president's message to congress last December, from which, he read some extracts. ''There was," said Senator Yilas, "an invitation to con-, 'press to exercise the functions which the constitution devolved upon it, and to provide against the peril which then beset tie national treasury and 1 the happiness of onr people. But what followed? Nothing. Nothing but the. fruitless distractions . of factions and t actioual cries. "We have had only as a 'result the manifestation of the impo- 'teuce of congr*ss to meet the condition ot peril in which the nation was placed." Proceeding with his argument Senator Vilas eame down to the point of: the president's second appeal to congress on the 2Sth of- January. the speech of Senator Vilas Senator Aldficli" (rep-, R. I.) sought to read a dispatch just received, but Senator Vilas declined to -yield for that purpose. House Proceoclluu*. JYASiilXGTO-N-. Feb. 19.,— In the house, senate amendments to the bill granting- right of way -through Oklahoma. und Indian territories to the Oklahoma Central railroad- were concurred in. Mr. Cockrell (dem., Tex.) called up house -joint resolution reported -from thfe committee on ways and . means directing tho secretary of the treasury to suspend the operations. of so, much, of tho revised .statutes as permits the transfer in bond thiough iho United States of articles destined for the free /.one of Mexico and it was agreed to. Consideration of the naval appropriation bill 'was then resumed iu committee of the 'whole.

Mi*s-Wachter Tells H«r Story Which Seriously Implicates Adry Hayward—Charges' Intimidation. MrxxE.lror.is, Minn., ' Feb. 19.—Ed- ward'Goodse'll, the Chicago dental student, was put on the stand when" the Hay-ward murder trial opened Tuesday morning for his redirect examina-- lion. He testified ! that he ' had usually been liarry Hay ward's com- pniuiou when he came to Chicago to gamble, and that he had seen him lose us much as 'SI,000 at a time. He usually had plenty of money, and for this reason Goodscll was not surprised to see him with 55,000 when there in November. Asked on cross- examination if he had ever seen Harry lose a.t 73 Jackson street, Chicago, ho said no; it was at a Wabash avenue resort that he lost. liiiliravlind Ullxfn Testimony. Frank Erhart, who was summoned by liis brother when the body was found, gave evidence which seemed to impeach the ' evidence of Blixt in one important particular. He swore that' he had found in the dirt near whore the body lay a heel mark and theu a toe mark of a lady's shoe. There were also the traces of where the foot had dragged to where the body lay. This evidence went to " show that Miss Ging's body was pushed out of the buggy feet first, instead of head, first, as the murderer testified. Of course, this would overthrow the theory that tho fracture of the skull and the contusion were caused by the fall from the buggy and would help to impeach the evidence of Ulixt. Saw Him Kiitvr the Bucsry. Oenrg-e Grimlall was an important witness for the defense, lie was standing on First avenue north between Fourth and Fifth streets at 7 o'clock or tliercabouts on December 3, the night of the murder. Crindall had H.H" appointment with a young woman at the point, named and was waiting there for her. Standing 1 a short way from him was a man "like that man there," said the witness, pointing to Attorney Sweetscr. Grindall siivr Miss Ging drive up. The man he had seen waiting there entered the buggy with' her and they drove away. This point is about a block from the West hotel, whence Miss Giug started on her fatal ride. The description given by Grindall of the man who joined her does not at all fit Harry Hay ward. JUfiD \Vnchl.cr'R Story. \VhcnMiss Wachter, against the introduction of whose testimony the objections of the state were removed, was called to the stand on Monday afternoon she looked indignant, and her looks did not belie the fact. When asked as to the statement that Blixt had accused Adry Hayward of being an accomplice, and that Harry was to be accused of the murder, she started talking at a rapid rate. In answer to the quest-on, she said: •'Blixt said tliey put up ibo Jol) about two weelcs before tho murJcr, and -went out and picked out ttio spot. On the day of ihe murder, ho said, Adry lold h'.in to tnito tlic iron, :ind CO out to the lake where they picked out the spot nad It he wanted help, Frank would be there to help him." She said that Blixt had given this as part of a statement to bis attornej 1 , but that tho latter bail become very ar.«ry aod told BIL-tt to say .notbinrr more about Adry Hayward. After that Blixt said: "I thought you wanted me to tell tho truth." Tlic-reafter Miss Wachter testified Blixt did not mention Adrian Hay ward's aame throughout his stato- CbarffCH Intimidation. • The story told by this witness appears to justify the claims made by the defense' of intimidation. When asked whether she'had'been threatened by attorneys on the case, Miss Wachter replied: ""I should think I had." She then told of tho visit of Mr. Hall last Saturday. The attorney had flattered and threatened her. .He had attacked her character and threatened her with loss of employment. She had also been threatened by the attorney for Bhxt, and, in sliort, her life bad been made a misery. Line of tne Defennc. Miss Wachter's testimony is an indication that the true inwardness of the Hayward defense is' coming 1 to the surface. From increasing evidence that Adry was in some way connected with the murder the belief is gaining credence that both were mixed up in the horrible plot. Bli.v.t's remark that Adry said to him; "Be sure you bring the iron," gains fresh significance every day as the case nn- folds. There is certainty expressed in some quarters that the state is aware of Adry's complicity, but has promised him immunity for his testimony against Harrv. In this event the defense will be able to prove its alibi for Harry Hayward, and that it was Adry that met Blixt on Kenwood Iwulevard. Signs the Marriage Contract.
