WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.—In accordance with the order made Tuesday the senate met Wednesday at 11 o'clock, which is to be the regular hour of meeting- till the -ith of March next. After the ordinary routine morning- business house bill to grant to railroad companies in the Indian territory additional power to .secure right of way and depot grounds was on motion of Senator Jones (deni., Ark.) taken from the ealendar and passed. The vice president having' laid before the senate the resolution offered, Tuesday by Senator Wolcott declaring- it ;i.s the sense of the senate that a. consideration of the silver bill should not be entered upon at this session of congress, Senator Jones (dem., Ark.), who had charge of that bill, said: "I wish to say that the friends of the regular order—the pending- silver bill— have no disposition to incur the risk of an extra session. Sliver Jloii Olvo VTiiy. "We so stated at the beginning-. Developments have shown that while the friends of the measure have a majority in this body, it is impossible to puss tho bill at the present late day of the session without incurring a very grave danger to the appropriation bills and an extra session. Under thes.e eircumstanccs the friends of the silver measure have authorized mo to say that they will not further proceed at this session of congress." !No comment was made on this announcement by any senator, and no formal action was ta.ken on the resolution. Other business having; intervened, the silver bill was made the text for a speech by Senator Jligg-ins (rep., Del.), who referred to its status as legislation let a.lone, and said that nil the bill amounted to—inasmuch as it could not become a law—was a declaration of policy, and that the resolution of the senator from Colorado meant just the same thing'. Senator Dig-gins' speech was interrupted tit 1- o'clock by tho vice president, who announced the close of the morning- hour, and the taking- up of the unfinished business, being- the silver bill. "Let it be laid aside informally,'' Senator Jones (dem., Ark.) suggested, "so as to allow the senator from Delaware to conclude his remarks." Uormau Appc:iln for Time. "I must appeal to the senator from Delaware," Senator Gorman (dem., Md.) broke in, "as well as to the senator from Arkansas, to cease this discussion at this time. All the great appropriation bills are pending- in the senate or in committee; .and it will be almost impossible to have fair consideration of them unless we begin now. I must appeal to the senator from Delaware in the public interest to give way, and to permit me to make a motion that the senate proceed to the consideration of the Indian appropriation bill." Aiiprirvrliitlon Dill Brontht Forward. After further discussion Senator Gorman made his motion and Senator Butler (dem., S. C.) who desired to g-o on with the pooling 1 bill, demanded the yeas and nays. The vote was taken, and the motion was agreed to, yeas 55, nays 12. The negative votes were g-iven by Senators Blanch- nrd, Hutler, Camden, Cameron, Faulkner, Ilunton, Jones (Ark.,) Lindsay, Martin, Mitchell (Wis.,) Quay and TVolcott. The effect of the vote was to displace the silver bill—remitting- it to the calendar—and to bring- the Indian appropriation bill before the senate. On this bill Senator Higgins resumed the floor and went on with the delivery of his speech on, the silver bill. In tho course of his speech Senator Big-gins declared that he was rejoiced to know that the president of the United States stood as a barrier against such legislation ns that proposed in the Jones bill; but he regretted more than he could tell the vote of the senate, the other day, to take up that bill—a vote taken "trippingly, lightly, and like children-going to a May fair." Silver Amendment Offered, An amendment to Senator TYolcott's resolution was presented by Senator Manderson (rep., Xeb.) to be offered when that resolution comes up again, but as it has -gone to the calendar it can only be taken up by a vote of the senate. The amendment is to add to the first clause which declared in favor of a law in favor of free and unlimited coinage of silver, these -words: Provided that efforts should be pressed by the United States to induce International bimetallism; and any legislation for free coinage of ' silver should provide for the maintenance of the parity between both metals, to which the faith of this country has been repeatedly pledgedi Senator Ctutndlftr Speak* on Sllvar BUI. Senator Chai addressed the senate He regretted that, in deference to tuc prevailing opinion in 2few England, and because it might be unwise to open our own mints to the unlimited coinage of silver without the concurrence of other great na,tions, he could not vote in favor of some affirmative measure in the direction of bimetallism, to promote which, he said, the republican party is sacredly pledg-ed by the promise of its national convention in 1S02, which, as yet, nothing has been done to redeem. KnpubUcttn Party Must Ai-t. OSES "To what extent," he said, "other causes than the demonetization of silver have broughtabout the distressing conj iition in which this country has found itself for the last tvro years it is not clear. But I cannot avoid the conclusion that the adoption of the single gold standard has helped to produce the impending calamity. The time is approaching when it will be necessary for the republican party to present some affirmative measures of bimetallism. AVhiit measure there must bo, must be determined by the wisest members of the party which is soon to control by an overwhelming majority the popular branch of congress. The bimetallism we have promised must be reached, or steps toward it must be taken; or the American voter will decide between gold and monometallism as the one alternative and silver monometallism as the other. It is useless to shut our eyes to the fact that the debtors are more, numerous than the creditors, and that the citizens who want prices of property to go up outnumber those who want them to remain as they are now. Bimetallism has been promised to the people of this country. They wa.it with much impatience for the fulfillment of the pledges solemnly made by both parties.'' Senator Daniel (dcm.. Va.) replied to the speech of Senator Higgins, which was, he said, a dismal and pitiful picture of the distress now pervading the civil b:ed world. At the close of Senator Daniels' remarks. Senator Power (rep., Mont.) presented the credentials of his successor, Thomas Henry Carter, which were placed on Clc. The regular consideration of the Indian appropriation bill was then proceeded with. BLOWN UP.

Feb. 20. — The first item <rf business before the house Wednesday was a message from President Cleveland vetoing- the bill for the relief of Jacob Eckort, late of the Fifty-fourth Ohio volunteer infantry, by removing- the charge of desertion against him from the records. The message was referred to the committee on military affairs. Mr. Richard-jn (dem., Term.) reported adversely 'i'rom the committee on. printing'the resolution proposing- to publish, the dairy tests made at the Columbian exposition. On motion of Mr. Talbott (dem., Md.}, th'e house proceeded in committee of the whole, Mr. O'Neill (dem.. Mass.) in the chair, to further consider the navy -appropriation bill for the year ending-June 30, 1SOG. l!y a vote o£ 121 to 43 the house refused to strike out of the bill the provision for building three battleships. The naval bill was reported to the house from the committee of the whole au% passed after the house refused— 07 to 109—to recommit the bill, with instructions to strike out the provision for the three battleships.

Discovery nl Flvn Frozen Corpien, an Entire Family, Victim* of Recent nllzzurd. IRONDAI.E, Mo., Feb. 20.—From Beaufort mountains. B miles south of this place, comes the report of a sad incident which happened in that section during- the recent blizzard. A woodchopper named John C. Warner, his wife and three children were found frozen to death. The place where the bodies were found is an isolated wood-chopping, 3 miles from the nearest farmer and 5 miles from any town. The finding of the bodies was purely accidental. James Rollins, a young farmer, was tracking a deer, and while passing through the clearing noticed a small cabin, and, being attracted to it, pushed open the door and WES horrified to see, on rude beds, the forms of five persons, all still in death. It is supposed the summons came while they slept, as all were under cover, and showed no signs of pain or a struggle. Rollins at once notified his neighbors, who made coffins and buried the entire family on the hillside. They may have been dead two or three •weeks, hut it is probable that they died on Friday night, February 8, when the thermometer registered 15 degrees below in this community.
