FvKiVri-iti™ to Some Neiv and OI<1 Political History — Ouotes Koscoe Conkling^ "Snivel Service Reform," and Says the New System I* Doomed—Teller in the Senate Disclaims ^lotives Given Him by a Newspaper Article. Washington, Jan. S.—The civil service debate continued throughout yesterday in the house. All efforts to fix a. time for its termination failed, and it is certain now 10 run over into next week. Thn interest in the discussion does not seem to be waning. The debate yesterday was noted for som.e very vigorous declarations of opposition to the whole scheme of reform, notably that of Cuna- mingrs of New York. Faris of Indiana was one of the speakers in opposition, anil Giiiette of Massachusetts favored the law. The latter maintained that the arguments of Grosvenor and Landis against the law were both in reality strong arraignment of the spoils system. He denied that the scope of the I executive order of May 6, 1896, was not understood when the St. Louis platform was adopted. He commented wittily on the spectacle of the white- haired veteran, Grosvenor, leading the young Hotspurs of the party in the battle for the spoils, and said it recalled to his mind the words Macauley placed in the mouth of Henry of Navarre at the battle of Ivry. CumtniiKTs Fays His Kespects to Grosvenor. Cummings cf New York announced himself an implacable foe of the whole system of civil service reform. Eoscoe Conkling, in his ,ypinion the greatest senator New York had ever known, had once spoken of" the "dreary drivel of snivel service reform." He had never appreciated it so much as he had during this day's debate. Cummings said the hostility to the system had been steadily growing. "The system is doomed," said he, "and one of the factors in its destruction is Tammany hall." In this connection Cummings replied warmly to some of the charges of corruption made against Tammany hail during the debate. "The gentleman from Ohio," said he, "rushes on here from Columbus, that hot bed of political corruption to which he has bietl him?elf back, and tells us that Tammany hall is corrupt. Think of it! denouni.-t;d as corrupt by a man who comes from the state that profited by the robbery of 1S76." Also Takis a Whack at .Toluison. Johnson of Indiana had said that Tammany hall was the most corrupt organization on the face of the earth and Johnson came from, the state made famous by "blocks of five" methods. Tammany was, Cummings said, a patriotic, liberty-loving society which had existed for 109 years. Burton of Ohio follo\ved in defense of the merit system and in the course of his remarks paid high tribute to Secretary Sherman and the late President Hayes, whose records had baen assailed by Cummings. Bavthoidt took occasion to defend Carl Schurz from what he termed the 1 slanders heaped upon that gentleman by Grosvenor. The intimation that there was a stain upon his personal honor was an insult to the German- Americans, whose confidence Schurz had retained for years. SILVKB MEN XOT IS A COXSPIBACY. ularly of what ne saia appears to t>e a proposed dismemberment of China by the European powers, declared that he would s*e to it if he were in the position o£ the president that the powers of Europe should not partition that great empire without strong protest from this country. He believed that a word from the T'nited States government to Russia, France and Germany that they' must keep hands off. our rights and privileges in China and that th'e autonomy fa f the empire should remain as it had been for 4.000 years would be sufficient to cause those powers to stop in their course of rapacity." Alien of Nebraska offered a resolution declaring; tl*at the United States should independently and without de lay bfs-in and continue the free coinage of silver at the ratio of 15 to 1: that such coinajre should be supplemented by a safe and sound national paper money to be issued by the government without the intervention of bar.ks, the notes to be full legal tender and to be iss;uecl in an amount sufficient to meet the business demands of the country; that any.increase of the interest bearing debt should be prohibited, and that no government bonds; should be issued or sold except by specific act of con- frress; that the government in the discharge of its obligations should use its "option" as to the kind of lawful money in which they should be paid, and that suc-h "option" should never be surrendered. t Turner of Washington, made a speech agrainst the immigration bill.

AMr*ts HARPER « BSOfflERS. Pttklldien, «»» York City Thanet Teller Denies a Newspaper Statement and "\Vants a Vigorous Foreign Policy. Washington. Jan. 8.—The feature of the senate session was a speech delivered by Teller regarding press reports that the recent efforts to make it appear that Secretary Gage had tendered His resignation as a member of the cabinet to President McKinley vrere a part of a conspiracy of the silver men to disrupt the cabinet and create dissen- sioc between the presid»nt and his advisers. Teller branded the publication as an insult to the advocates of the free coinage of silver. He was satisfied that the president and Secretary Gage were in full accord upon the financial question. He attacked the Republican party because it was a party advocating; the gol<3 standard, and expressed liis intention of doing all in his power to defeat the party in 1900 and to drag the prt-senl administration from power, because the policy of tne party was, in liis opinion, inimical to the best and highest interests of the people of the United Slates. He referred in terms of high respect to SciTftary Ca,sre personally, and expressed his jr-uification that Gage had [he courage of his convictions and was willing to stand squarely upon his opinions. The secretary was, in the opinion of Teller, an exception in this respect to many other prominent Republicans. Chandler said he desired to call the attention of the senator from Colorado to a matter whiehhewasevidently overlooking. "The point I make," said Chandler, "is ths: the president of the United States .'peaks for himself either through state papers or in such other manner as he may deem wise, and he is not be judged by what his secretary of the treasury may say upon any questions. Neither is he to be judged by the utterances of the senator from Indiana, made in the full flush of enthusiasm over his- entrance into the senate of the United States, before an audience of his constituents in Indianapolis," Proceeding Teller said he hopvsd that the time would soon, come when we could say to a fifth rate powet lifce Spain: Take your hands off lhat -bountiful island—an island wbich you;Tiave nearly depopulated—and say it, too, without fear of Jjjfe opinion of the money power.

Washington, Jan. 8.—The legislative committee of the American Federation ol.' Labor, consisting of President Gom- P'5rs, Secretary Morrison and Andrew Furuseth, by direction of the late convention of the federation, held in Nashville, has issued an address to the members of the Fifty-fifth congress. After calling attention to the introduction of modern machinery, and new business methods and the competion of convict labor, etc., they recommend as follows: "1. An eight-hour work day on all public work?, such law to -provide tha aVt contracts or sub-contracts for ma terials furnished or work done mus contain a provision that eight hour shall be the maximum labor of any in dividual in any one calendar'day. "2. In order to stop the indiscriminat and dangerous use of the writ of in junction we urge the adoption of senat bill 35. "3. In ordertoinsoniedegreelessenth competition of convict labor we urg< the adoption of a law to prohibit th' transportation of prison-made good: from one state into another state o territory. j^."i, We urge the adoption of a rea invisible law to restrict undesirable im migration, such law to be based upon an education qualification." Nominated for Office, Washington, Jan. 8. — Among the name? sent to the senate by the presi dent yesterday were the following Robert O. Pearce, surveyor of customs port of Rock Island, Ills.; Charles : WYight, collector of internal revenue for the First district of Michigan; James H.

"Washington, Jan. g,—A bill was introduced in the house yesterday by Belknap, of Illinois, proposing retaliatory steps against France if the plans of the French government for an increase of duties on American meat products, is carried out. It authorizes an increase of duty on articles brought from France in amount equivalent to the additional duties imposed on American products- DURRATVT IS HANUED AT LAST. Dies Either Judicially Mardered'or a Dou- Iile-Dyed Liar and Hypocrite. San Francisco, Jan. 8.—William Henry Theodore Durrant was hansred in San Quentin prison at 10:35 a, m. yesterday in the presence of 150 persons, of whom his father was one. An attendant and active worker of the Baptist church when he murdered Blanche Lament and Minnie Williams, just be•fore his execution he changed his religion and was received into the Roman Catholic church. He made a rather rambling speech On the gallows, the burden of which was that he was imiocc-nt. and "I am innocent," were the last words he said. Having received extreme unction just before he uttered these words he died either innocent or an awful liar and hypocrite. His crimes are well known. He lured two girls into Emanuel Baptist church in Sail Fran'.'isco, ravished at least one of them and brutally murdered them both. At any rate that was what he was hanged for. This was in 1S94, and it has taken three years to hang him. But the people of California fee; relieved because the event proves that: they can hang thugs in this state. Every resource oE the active minds of his lawyers was exhausted to save his life, the last work in that direction beir.g completed at Washington yesterday just in time to telegraph the result here before the hang-ing. The result was against Durrant, the national supreme court refusing to interfere. Childs-Drcxel Home for Printers. Colorado Springs, Colo.. Jan.

Columbus, O., Jan. S.—The calling of a mass convention of Republicans in. this city nex-t .Monday by the Republican state executive committee to protest against the attempt to defeat Hanna is claimed by the opposition to be merely a move on the part of the Hanna people to intimidate the Republican members who refuse to vote for Hanna. The calling of the convention has been generally indorsed, however, by the supporters of Hanna. in all parts of the state, according to telegrams that have been received at the Hanna headquarters. It develops that the Kurtz people had decided to take advantage of the efforts of certain Republicans to throw cold water on the ceremonies attending the inauguration of Governor Bushnell. The Kurtz people thought the disapproval of Governor Bushneli's attitude would keep the Hanna Republicans away from the city, and they set about to bring a. big crowd of Governor Bushneli's friends here. Bushnell's Pictures Are Xot Popular. The calling of the mass convention will now bring a large crowd of Hasina supporters to Columbus. Agents of the Kurtz people were endeavoring yesterday to place pictures of the governor in the windows of business houses on all the principal streets. They met with considerable opposition, and but few picture? appeared. Preparations arc- being pushed for the inaugural by the local committee, despite the opposition. The inaugural parade will be made up chiefly of military, as nearly all of the political clubs that had decided to participate have rescinded their action. Some weeks ago the Ninth battalion of colored troops tendered its services as escort to Governor Bushnell in theparade, and the governor promptly accepted the tender in recognition of the loyalty shown by the colored people of the state in the election in the face of the fight made against him on account of the Urbana lynching. Colored Troops Abuudon the Governor. Yesterday Major Charles Fillmore. commanding the Ninth battalion, sent to the governor a letter declining to act as personal escort. In the letter Major-Fillmore says: "Some weeks aso I voluntarily tendered you the services of my command as an escort on the day of your inauguration, but since then exigencies have arisen over which I have no control. Word reaches rne from various parts of the state that if my command in particular appears in the inaugural parade it will be received with jeers, hisses and laughter. I have labored too hard to bring my command up to the high state of efficiency and discipline where it is now to be humiliated in such a manner. I regret very much that such is the state or affairs, but should the services of my command be required to defend the honor of the state or protect the lives of her citizens, you will not find us faltering." BRADSTREET'S IS CONSERVATIVE. T\VO COME OVT FOR HAXXA. at Tliis Time "Not Inferior •» An.v Hrevlou* Year." New Tork, Jan. S. — Bradstreet's says: The year opens with a tone of quiet ronfidencepervadingnearly all bnfncJrtiit cf business, with encouraging activity In the iron trade, a resumption of work by many thousands of industrial employes in the western glass industry. a largely reduced volume of business failures as compared with corresponding periods in preceding years, and A general outlook certainly not inferior to any previous year at, this time. Distributive trade has naturally Tseen. rather slow pending stock taking anil the return of salesmen to the field. While the volume of distributive business is no larger industrial activity is a special feature unconnned to any one section, but specially notable in the west. Resumption of work _ after the holidays has been generally Vncourag- ing in that section. Naturally enough there was a Slight gain in the number of failures reported this week overeat, the total aggregating 333 agrfrnVr 297 last week, but a heavy falling off from 1S97. when the total was 4SS.

The reputation ofjlW banking community for coJLBeVvatlMn, however, is born out by thj^i»latlvely heavier falling off in the ifunrtjer of failures and the reduced Volume of lia- tftlities of banks and trust companies— as compared with preceding years— than in ordinary commercial circles. . • Commission Helped by « !>«*!.

Jan, S.—The news of Representative Manuel's declaration made before a mass meeting of his constituents at Dayton last night that he would vote for Senator Hanna was received with great satisfaction at the Hanna headquarters. It is claimed that Manuel's declaration at this time means more to Hanna's cause than the vote that is carried with it. The'Hanna people expect that it will influence other recalcitrant Republicans to break away from the fusion. News was brought from Representative Griffith's home in Union county that Griffith was n the hands of his friends there and that they had secured his promise to vote for Hanna. This news was not, however, confirmed by any statement from Griffith himself. A special from Xenia says that at a big mass meeting there Representative Snider declared he would vote for Hanna. A significant fact was the" holding ast night in various parts of the state of mass meetings of Republicans at which resolutions were adopted demanding that Kurtz resigm from the Republican national committee, of ivhich he is the member from Ohio. There was a rumor last night that Forker was on his way to Columbus, but he was not aboard any of the incoming rains up to midnight. There was a rumor, unverified, that the senator had had a conversation over the long distance telephone with Kurtz during the day, in which the senator was quoted as having suggested to Kurtz hat it was about time for him to retire rom the fight. Mr. Kurtz is reported o have responded that it •was impossible, that he had gone too far. Kurtz .enied the story to a friend- Anderson. Ind.. Jan. 8.—Winfield T.
