Washington, Jan. 27.—The house devoted another day to the consideration of the Indian appropriation bill, most of the time being consumed, as on the two previous days, in discussing ex- tranous subjects. By far the most interesting; feature of the day was the lebate on the question of reducing- tiie mail carrier service in the large cities owing to the failure of the senate to attach the estimated deficiency of $160,000 to the urgent deficiency bill. Chairman Loud, of the postoffice committee, and Chairman, Cannon, •of the appropriation committee, allayed the wrath of the members by assuring them that there was no occasion tor alarm; that the service could not possibly suffer until June i5, before which time there would be ample opportunity to pass a deficiency appropriation. Loud used strong'words in Tuesday *nat the question unaer d cussion iv^s not one of law. but one of honor and integrity. H<? said tnat the advocates of the pending resolution maintained that by a crime the price of silver had been reduced until the silver in a dollar was worth only 44 cents yet the same senators who made the 1 charge of that "crime" advocated tha «*yment of the srovernment's obligations in this depreciated money—money that had been depreciated, as they clairrwd, by crime. The Colorado senator, when he rose to begin his speech. Hoar said, expressed a. desire to resent something.

The statement of Loud making; accusation against the postoffiee officials was made in reply to a charge made by Representative Qulg-g, of New York. Loud said that the statements of the gentleman from New York (Quigg) were absolutely false and unfounded. That gentleman had been having himself interviewed, charging that he (Loud) was responsible for the existing- predicament; that he (Loud) had defied congress and the postoffice and had forced the department to cut oft the carriers. "Such criticism," said Loud, "is beneath my contempt. The charge is made that the postoffice appropriation bill this year carried $160,000 below the estimates. I know the officials of the postoffice department back that charge, but I assert that it is false." "Then you allege falsehood against the officials of the department?" interrupted Quigg. "Let him take it who can bear it," responded Loud, and added that the postoffice had made the deficiency by employing more men that the ( law authorized. C:innon Calls Down Some Wroth. During a speech by Cannon of Illinois —who had been attacked by Kelley o£ South Dakota—he good-naturedly referred to Kelley, as a "bantam rooster" and usually a rather "good-looking, amiable man." The gentleman from South Dakota was evidently nettled and he retorted with considerable bitterness. So far as physical characteristics went, he said, he thought Cannon might make as respectable a looking roosteras himself. This was not the first time he had been insulted by the gentleman from Illinois. "I may not have had the legislative experience of the gentleman from Illinois," said he, "neither, I thank God, have I as yet learned ruffianism, blackguardism and ungentlemanly conduct. I grant that he is an adept at cheese-paring, but when it comes to Danville, Ills., he wants everything- in sight." Cannon did not make any reply to this assault. Would BuiW Warships on tlie Lakes.

He is urging that the modification be brought about by negotiations through diplomatic channels. Ruling of the Commerce Commission. Washington, Jan. 27.—The interstate commerce commission yesterday, in an opinion by Chairman Knapp, announced its decision in the case of the Milwaukee Chamber of Commerce against the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway company and others.

NEW YORK. LODGE QUOTES A TELLER SPEECH. On« Fcatnre of the Debate in Senate ott Silver Payment. For more than six hours the senate had under discussion the Teller resolution providing- that the government pay the principal and interest of the bonds of the United States in silver. By Agreement the resolution and pending amendment are to be voted upon before adjournment today. The debate yesterday was devoid of the sensational incidents and acrimonious- colloquies which eharacterized that of Tuesday, but it h-as replete with argumenfand oratory, fhe time was consumed by Teller, Daniel, Hoar, and Piatt. All delivered set *peeches except Hoar, whose speech Was in reply to some points advanced by Teller Tuesday. No other business was transacted. After Teller bad concluded his speech on the silver resolution Lodge called attention tosomesiatements incriticism of an amendment offered by nim (Lodge) Tuesday to the pending- resolution. The amendment declared that the obligations of the United States should be paid "in the mosey that is the highest money of the world, in gold or its equivalent in gold, whether that be sllveror paper." Lodge inquired whether Teller was in favor -* -'— - - • ' "Well. I shall vote against it. the Colorado senator. Lodge insisted upon knowing whether Teller did or did not think the amendment a. proper principle for congress to lay down. Teller still held that the government and the government's creditors ought to abide by contracts made. "I desired to know," said Lodge, "what the senator from Colorado thought of my amendment, because I copied it word for word from a speech made by the senator, in which he declared that every dollar tm's government owes will be paid in the money that is the highest money of the world, in gold or Its equivalent in gold, whether that be silver or paper." Lodge thought that if the senator from Colorado believed that his statement was accurate when he made it he ought not now to object to supporting it with his voice and vote. Teller replied that he had never advocated the payment of government obligations in a depreciated currency and did not now. Hoar .tallowed, in a. speech in wblcfc fee inatot«jne<i th« position-he for those sports which were called rough. It did a man good, he said, to "buck up" against at." opponent and g-et through him—like a gentleman always, but working for evary ounce that was in him. ITV[ _ J "I don't believe," he continued, "In the doctrine of peace. "We have seen the concert of Europe keep the peace for the past two years at the expense of more bloodshed and-misery than has been caused by all the wars of the last half century. ~'Latery*-we have- seen, a 'peaceful' acquisition of territory In China, made' in circumstances of profound peace." [Laughter.] SHAKEN UP VERY LIVELY. Tnth the Commission's Plan for Currency Reform Duly Indorsed and AH Business Transacted—New York Men Serve Xotioe That Will >'ot Be Needed During This Congress—Buckner's Characterization of Teller's Idea. Indianapolis. Jan. 27.—It was not expected that the monetary convention would remain in session more than two days, and this expectation was realized. It settled down to work promptly at 10 o'clock yesterday morning and adjourned at 2 o'clock subject to the call of the chairman, Hugh Hanna. It was a convention that was notable for the prominence of its delegates in business circles and for the large number who, at the sacrifice of their private interests, made the long -journey to Indianapolis to emphiislze by their presence their strong- sympathy with the movement for currency reform. The proceedings of the convention were transacted with that business-like method which was characteristic of th* men engaged. There were about them a snap and a vim and energy, combined with the absence of superfluities and hair-splitting points of order that furnished a refreshing contrast to a purely political convention, where prominent action is less required than the advantage of this or that party for a candidate. Commission's lull Indorsed. There was no desire to shirk the work entrusted to the delegates, nor was there, on the other hand, any purpose to delay its compietion. The business of the convention was to indorse the report of the monetary commission which is now before congress in the form of a bill, and when this was done it promptly adjourned. Many of the delegates returned to their homes yesterday afternoon. All of the New York and eastern men left on the early trains and some of the Iowa delegates were equally prompt in getting away. Last i^ght only a score of the delegates were Bout the hotel lobbies and the convention of which they were a part had already passed into history. The convention's view of Teller's resolution wasvoiced in the speech of General Buckner of Kentucky, when he spoke of "a proposition now pending before one of the bodies of congress which proposes a double repudiation of the debts of this country and a double dishonor upon the nation." Xot Unanimous for the Bill. It was a solid standard convention without any-It's,-buts,' or provisos,--and all the speakers were gold standard men, who did'not trifle with the question. But it was nc't unanimous for the commission's bill. The Merchants' association, of ;Xew York, representing thousands of business houses and mill- SAW THE WOMAN LEAVE HOME. " Witnesses in tht> Leutgprl, Trial Establish • MultiMidiuuus Alibi. Chicago. Jan. 27.—By far the most important witness introduced in the Luetgert trial was calk-ti by the defense yesterday. Otto Klatt is t.he man's name. and he sweaxs that about 11 o'clock on the night of May 1 last, while driving; past the Luetgert residence in Hermitage avenue, he nearly ran over a, woman with a. bundle in nor hand whom he described as about the size of Mrs. Leutgert. He had not seen her leave the hous'f, but remembered afterward that he had heard the gate latch of Luetgert's house click just before he saw the woman. He told his wife about it the samp' night. His story was not shaken by cross-examination.' Other witnesses testified as follows: Kenosha witnesses saw Mrs. Luetgrert in the Wisconsin town from May S to S !a.«t year. Mrs. Thomson, of Kewanee. Ills., chatted with her at the railway station ::n Cedar Rapids, la., on the night of May 25.

Jan. 27.—Labor Commissioner Cox last November appointed George Wagner, of Marquette, a special deputy to collect statistics regarding the mining industry in the upper peninsula. The report of the special deputy has been received. Although the prices of ore have not advanced, a far better feeling exists among the operators and wages have advanced from 10 to 15 per cent, during the latter part ol the year. The coppstr miners have received better wages than those engaged In the iron Industry. Although not more than one-third of the Iron mines were in operation during the year, the output has been the largest in the history ot the state, and the prospects are that the miners will produce 10,000,000 tons of ore during the year 1S9S. The present royalty system under which some of the mines are worked is denounced as detrimental to the development of the Michigan mines. The system is said to have tended to reduce wages. Earthquake Visits Helena. Ark,— Tliree Shock* Clven. Helena, Ark., Jan. 27.—At 7:50 o'clock last night this city was startled by a severe earthquake shock. Houses were shaken to their foundations and a success! nn of noises was heard that sounded like immense explosions. The people -who had assembled in the Presbyterian church for prayer meeting rushed out of the church expecting the walls to tumble down upon them. There were three distinct shocks within quick succession, the first being the most severe and the three occnpy- iny less than a half dozen seconds. They were followed by a trembling or shaking motion and not by the usual swaying and waving motion. Telephone messages from country points indicate that the shock was felt at many places.

Accept* a Chicago Offer. Toronto, Ont., Jan. 27.—Rev. Professor .George L, Robinson, professor of Old Testiment literature and exegesis at Knox college..has decided to.accept'a "similar post in McCormick Theological «minary Ions of invested capital, through itsrep- resentatives sent to the convention has, announced that the bill 'incorporating the pian of the commission will be fought in congress in its present form and changes must be made. The representatives carne here prepared to protest on the floor of the convention and offer amendments. Leaders of the movement argued, to them the importance of a united front to secure some action from congress towards currency reform and they contented themselves with filing their proposed changes with the convention which railroaded them to the resolutions committee unread, and they died there. The representatives are anxious for currency reform and so agreed not to make their fight at the present stage. Talked of Educational Work. In fact it was dropped because it was felt that the present congress would pass no currency reform bill at all. The executive committee was in session most of the afternoon discussing plans for furthering the educational feature of the work. It was decided to continue the Washington and Indianapolis bureaus indefinitely and to attempt by the dissemination of literature to work up popular sentiment for the commissioners' plan rather than to convert individual congressmen. Chairman Hanna was given carte blanche to conduct a campaign along- this line. The speeches of the convention will be distributed In pamphlet form.
