Di-butc Xot Exciting Except When an Orator Wan Hissed lor Declaring That John 6h«rrnan Would Occupy » Very Comfortable Place in the Doniijiious of Belial —Keed Has EU Name Calied and Votes Aguiust tho Resolution. Washington, Feb. 1—The house of representatives yesterday buried the Teller resolution declaring the bonds of the United States payable in silver under an adverse majority of 50 votes. The Republicans were solidly arrayed in opposition with two exceptions—Linney of North Carolina, who voted with the Democrats and Populists, and White of North Carolina, the only colored member of the house, who answered "present" when his name was called. The desertions from the Democratic side were McAleer, of Pennsylvania and Elliott of South Carolina. Both voted \tith the Republicans against the proposition. Speaker Reed, although it is not customary for him to vote, had his name called, and amid the cheers of his followers went on record in opposition to the resolution. The vote was reached after five hours of debate under a special order adopted at the opening of the session. Time for Oratory "Farmed Out." The limited time allowed for debate and the [pressure of members for an opportunity to be heard was so great that the leaders on both sides were compelled to farm out the time by minutes. This detracted much from the continuity of the discussion, but it also in a measure intensified the interest in the galleries, which were crowded all day, and the combatants on the floor were cheered by their respective sympathizers. Many of the senators from the other end of the Capitol were also present to listen to the arguments. The majority, under the leadership of Dingley, who made a carefully prepared speech sounding the keynote of the opposition, assumed the position that the last clause of the resolution was in reality a disguised declaration for the free coinage o£ silver. Position the Democrats Took. The Democrats, under the direction of Bailey, maintained that the defeat of the resolution was another step in the direction of establishment of the gold standard to which they alleged both the president and Secretary Gage had irrevocably committed the Republican party. The debate was at times fast' and 'hea.ted, but there were no sensational incidents beyond the hissing of Rhea of Kentucky when he said that as the author of the "crime of 1S73" the hottest place in hades would be reserved for the present secretary, of state. The vote on the resolution was—ayes, 1S2; nays, 182. POINTS OF THE TWO LEADERS/ Extracts from What Dingley and Bailey Said About the .Resolution. Dingley closed his speech against the resolution in part as follows: "This; brings me to the consideration of the: vital question as to whether the government has the moral right—in othe'r words, whether it would be an act which the moral sense of the world would regard as in accordance with honor and! good faith, for the United States la pay its outstanding bonded indebtedness in dollars of so materially less value than the dollar which has been the practical standard of value slnca 1S34, barring the war reconstruction, period, and. which has been the legal; and practical standard of value since 1879, and the dollar in. which our bond-;ed indebtedness has been paid thus fat 1 —paid by every administration from.: Lincoln to McKinley, to wit: The dollar equal in value to 25.8 grains of standard gold. [Applause.] Bear in mind that we are discussing this question from the point of honor and good, faith, and not from the point of power or technical legal rights; for I have already said that the government ca.n do as it pleases. "It is because I believe that it [the pending resolution] would seriously injure our credit and standing as ?. nation thai: I appeal to the gentlemen on this side of the house to maintain the pledge which the Republican "party made at St. Louis to keep all our currency, whether silver or paper, as good as gold, and preserve inviolably the public faith and credit; and to the s-er.- tlemen on the other side of the house to maintain the standard of value which Jackson's administration gave the country sixty-four years ago, and the honor and good faith of the nation so carefully preserved by the fathers of the Democratic party, and to take the opportunity offered by the resolution now before the bouse to show the country and Jhe world that the good name of the nation is safe in our hands." [Prolong-ed Republican applause.] After the outburst of applause which, greeted the ciose of Ding-ley's speech had subsided Bailey was recognized for an hour, and he closed for the Democrats in a speech which stirred his followers to a high pitch of enthuslams. The resolution under consideration, hei said, contained two propositions, one moral and the other legal. One asserts as a msitter of law that the bonds of. the United States are redeemable at the option of the government in silver, and! the other as a matter of morals that aoi restore to its coinage such silver coinsi as a leg.'al tender in payment of the: bonds, principal and interest. Is not in violation of the public faith nor In derogation of the rights of the public creditors- Ee would not dwell, he said, on he legal aspect of the question. Thewi •vras not a lawyer in the United StaiMl nor in :any other country who wonMl Mature on Jila_nro.£ep»ioiu>i to deny that tne oonas could Be paid !a silver. "Dees one of you believe," said he, addressing the Republicans, "that if the bondholder owed the government under a similar contract he would exercise his option. If it is right that he should exercise his option, as he would, we believe the government has the same right with their positions reversed. [Democratic applause.] We are ready to meet you on this issue—the issue that the money which is good enough for the •seaple who produce the wealth is good •nough for the idlers who spend it', that the money which is good enough for the poor is good enough for the rich; that _ he money the laborer receives for his j toil and the merchant for his wares is ' good enough for the bondholder, and by the eternal, he shall be compelled to take it."

Expected to Fill a Longr-Fclt Want in That 1'a.rlictilar Line. Washington. Feb. 1.— An anti-trust bill, explicit in its terms and naming a penalty of 510,000 fine or from two to fifteen years' imprisonment, has been introduced in the house by Greene of Nebraska. It makes it a felony to monopolize or attempt to monopolize, or combine or conspire with any others to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the states, or with foreign nations, and the making of every contract, agreement, or combination entered into by any persons, firms, corporations or combinations of persons, as a trust or otherwise, to restrain trade or commerce or limit or control the output or prices of any article of commerce. The bill confers jurisdiction on the several circuit, and district courts of the United States and any state court having common law jurisdiction, and forfeits "to the United States property owned under such contracts, etc., and In course of transit into a state or to a foreign country. NICARAGUA IS fiTVIXG WOKKY. Her Concessions to tu« "Perfidious Britons," and Uncle Sam's Right*. Washington, Feb. L— If the Nicaraguan government should contract with a foreign syndicate for the construction of a railroad and steamship line across its territory, such action would, authorities say, be in violation of the terms of the concession granted to the Maritime Canal company, and would probably be resented by the United Spates. Article five of the concession to the Maritime company provides that "the state binds itself not to make any subsequent concession for the opening of a canal between the two oceans during- the term of the present concession (ninety-nine •years), and also to abstain from granting a concession for a railroad, such as might compete with the canal for the transportation of merchandise, during the same period." That is Uncle Sam's point; but immediately following is a proviso that looks to "^;tian up a tree" big enough to carry any sort of concession to anybody else, except only a concession for another canal. This is the proviso: "But nothing in this article shall prevent the government of Nicaragua from constructing, or permitting the construction, of such railways as it may deem advisable for commerce and internal traffic." Senator Morgan discussed the bid of the Atlas company. "The government of Nicaragua," he said, "has no legal right to sell to any foreign corporation its railwaj's and steamships if their operation will open a line of communication parallel to the route of the maritime canal. The concessions which the Nicaraguan government has made to the canal company explicitly preclude this." No Cause for Complulut Therein. Washington, Feb. 1.— No word has been received at the state department from Consul General Lee since Saturday last, which is taken as an indication that all is quiet there and that the situation remains unchanged. The department has been informed that the Spanish authorities in Havana had seized certain supplies consigned to a private individual, but there is no cause for complaint in this incident, inasmuch as '.he agreement made by the department with the Spanish authorities as to the free admission of supplies for the sufferering Cubans looked to the consignment of all such supplies to Consul General Lee and the exclusion of individuals from the privilege of free admission of goods, a provision necessary to prevent frauds upon the customs revenues. ' Morgan Not Satisfied Yet. Washington, Feb. 1.'— In the senate yesterday Morgan presented a resolution. requesting the president, If In his opinion not inconsistent with the public service, to send to the senate the corre- ,;,nondence and notes o" diplomatic char- I arier relating to the negotiations and the exchange of ratifications upon a treaty between the United States and Great Britain relating to compensation for the seizure of British ships in the Behring sea and also the instructions and advice given by the state department to the agent or attorney of the United States as to the conduct of the arbitration. _ Senate Passes a Conple of Bills. Washington, Feb. 1.— Yesterday's session of the senate lasted six hours. Two of the general appropriation bills— that for the army, carrying $23,243,492, and that for the legislative, judicial and executive ' departments, carrying $21,655,520 — were passed, the latter consisting of 121 pages and occupying the attention of the senate during the greater part of the session. After a brief arecu- -ive session the senate adjoarned- Worst of It Is That the Otlier Fellows Wore the Victors—Further Story That They Proceeded to Kill the People in Villages Friendly to Foreigner*—Quarrel Over a Concession Causes the Trouble—China Complications N"ot Acute. Tangier, Feb. 1.—The British steamer Tourmalin, it is officially announced, while attempting to land arms and stores on the Sus coast fg Morocco, was intercepted by the sl*rifian steamer Hassani, whereupon she opened fire. The Hassiani reciprocated and captured one of the ship's boats with three Englishmen. The Moorish troops then demolished the villages favorable to the foreigners, killing numbers of the inhabitants. The difficulty appears to have arisen from the operations of a British mining company, the Globe Venture, a syndicate acting under a treaty whereby the Sus chiefs granted a trading and mining monopoly over 150,000 square miles of the Sus district. London, Feb. 1.—A dispatch to The Daily Mail from Mogador, Morocco, says that an expedition having occupied Erkzes (presumably on the Sus coast), with the assistance of rebel tribesmen, the sultan's troops attacked and defeated it after severe fighting, capturing four Englishmen. European Concert Out of Tune. New York, Feb. 1.—A dispatch to The Commercial-Advertiser from London says: "There is an impression here that the sultan in the end will be compelled to accept Prince George as governor of Crete. It is strong enough to provoke discussion of the consequences, namely —that the Turks, already disturbed and restless, will be likely to ask compensation for Greece's virtual gain of Crete. The European concert, as to the near east, is temporarily dissolved, with Germany and Austria on one side and the other powers on the other, but it is not beyond re-establishment. The Greeks are likely to be calmer and more content with the dynasty, but there are fears of worse than the existing anarchy for a time in Greece, with the Turks clustered about Canea and jealous Cretan clan chiefs ready to provoke disorder." Faker Seems to Have Been at Work. London, Feb. 1.—It is announced OD the best authority that the talk of an Anglo-Japanese plan of campaign ' in certain eventualities is unfounded. No such matter has occupied the attention of the statesmen of the two countries, and '.no agreement exists between England and Japan except the common desire to secure the free development of trade in China. As regards Port Arthur, the Russian fleet (according to the same- authority) is only there for winter quarters, and the statements as to a Russian occupation are unfounded. China is willing that the English warships should anchor there if required. The Shanghai correspondent of The Daily Mall says a dispatch has been received there from Port Arthur, asserting -that no British vessels remain in the harbor and that the Iphigenia and the Daphne left a week^ago, KAISER FAKDOXS A2T EDITOR. Wants to 3I Peru, Ills., Feb. L — Rev. Thomas Wadleigh, of New Bedford, has brought suit against the Peru News-Herald for S10.000 damages for libel, on an article published during the recent strike of the coal miners, charging him with appropriating to his own use money which he had collected in Chicago by repre- i sentiBE that it was to be used for the I relict of th$ J5£rfkfinL_ _ ;' — He Had Printed a Cartoon Making; Fun of an Imperial Speech. Berlin, Feb. 1.—Emperor William, it is reported, has pardoned Herr Trojan, editor of The Kladderadatsch, who was sentenced a few days ago to two months' imprisonment in a fortress for lese majeste in cartooning the emperor. The cartoon, which appeared in The Kladderadatsch last December, represented Frederick the Great, Napoleon. Alexander the Great and Leonidas reading Emperor William's speech delivered on Nov. 18 at the ceremony of swearing in the guards recruits, when his majesty remarked that in order to b» a good soldier it was necessary to bt a good Christian. The sentence upon Herr Trojan, which was said to have been directly due to the emperor's in- flnence, was pronounced atrocious even by the conservative newspapers. It Wag the Body of Ruiz. Havana, Feb. 1— The body of Lieutenant Colonel Joaquin Ruiz, the aide- de-camp of Captain General Blanco, who was executed by order of the late General Nestor Aranguren for visitingr an insurgent camp with proposals looking to the surrender of the insurgent chief, after having been found was identified ana brought to Campo Florido, where it w:is received with military honors. Conspiracy at Teheran, Persia. Berlin, Feb. 1.—The Post saysitlearns from Russian sources of the discovery of a conspiracy at Teheran, Persia, to murder the shah and to install a younger brother at the palace.

CAMPBELL TESTIFIES AGAIN." Says He Was Frt«-iirfl v to Both Maj«* Kinleyaod Hsniia. Columbus, O., Feb. l.—The investigation into the alleged attempt to bribe representative Otis to vote for Hann* during the late senatorial contest \X rapidly drawing to an end. The committee teld a brief session after the sen- a-;., adjourned last evening. Attorney 1. C. Campbell was the only v.'itnes* examined. Campbell said he did not se€ how Otis could have voted for Hanna, as Otis was a member of a free silver c!ub. Campbell said he had always been on friendly terms with Hanna an* had been associated in a business way with some of Ha.nna's friends. Ha claimed that he had been a supporter oi . Hanna until after the hitter's positioa on the mor.ey Question had been mad« known after his appointment to the sea- ate. Then he had rather drifted awayfrom the senator politically. Campbell claimed that he had been a supporter of McKinley in the presidential campaign, on account of his views QP the tariff, an* that he had made a speech in Coopel. Union hall for which the president an* Senator Hanna had both sent him notes of thanks. No other witnesses were examined and the crowd of spectator! who had gathered were somewhat disappointed. It is believed the committee •will complete its work this week an* that a report, or rather two reports, -wBl be submitted soon. TWO QUESTIONS TO GAGE. J^ One Is Replied to hy Assistant S«er»t*ry Vnnderltp ->'o Reply to the Oth«r. Indianapolis, Feb. 1.—A citizen of Indianapolis a few weeks ago wrote to Mr. Gage, secretary of the treasury, an* propounded two questions to him. The first one was as follows: "Is the valu« of our paper currency regulated by a law of congress _or by reason of grold or silver being held in our government vaults for its redemption?" An answer to this was received yesterday from F. A. Vanderlip, the assistant secretary of the trasury department, to the effect that "legislative action alone is not sufficient to give value to a paper currency. This is illustrated in the history of United States notes. During the war and for years afterward they were at a discount in gold, varying in value from day to day according to the public opinion of their worth,and it wsur, not until Jan. 1, 1S79, when the. government actually began their redemption. in g-old, that they became in reality what the law dc-clared them to be." The other question was as follows: "If the government of the United State* should retire all its paper currency which is now by. law made a legal tender, and substitute in lieu thereof those of a national bank note currency, could congress, under our constitution, make such bank currency- a legal ten- dei one?" This the secretary declined to answer. \Vest«™ Base Ball Association.
