VAHiiis(iTox, Aug. 2;i. In the ecnute
today the resolution offered yesterday by
Peffer of Kanas as to the violation of
the law by the national hunks, in de
clining to pay depositors their checks in
currency, was taken op, and a motion to
refer it to the committee on finance
(made by Hoar of Massachusetts) gave
rise to a Jocg and somewhat exciting
discussion, in which Yoorhees, Gorman
and McPherson favored the reference,
and Manderson, Kyle, Hill and Wol
cott opposed it, and insisted on the
adoption of the resolution. Gorman
pointed out that the adoption of the
resolution would be a notice to the con
troller of the currency, who would im
mediately proceed to enforce and there
by necessitate the closing of banks and
cause the utter rain of the country.
The cauee of Peffer was sustained by
Senator Hill, wbo broke away from the
leadership of Gorman and Yoorhees,
and, in direct opposition to .the position
taken by them, made several speeches
which showed a division in the ranks.
Hill plainly took a position which indi
cates be has opinions and views of his
own not to be molded by those who have
been considered the leaders of the dem
ocratic side in the senate. Hill under
took to draft some modification of the
resolution, but before he had completed
tbein the morning bour expired, and
the resolution went over without action.
It took its place on the calendar, where
it can only be reached again, in regular
order or upon a motion supported by a
majority vote. Stewart gave notice, as
he was disappointed in getting the floor
today to address the senate on the bill
discontinuing the purchase of silver bul
lion, that be would seek the floor to
morrow, and Hill gave a similar notice
for next Friday.

Washington, Aug. 23. As the close
of tlie debate on the financial issue in
the bouse draws near it is apparent the
silver men have been outwitted to a
light extent by revealing their forces in
the matter of allotment of time. C. W.
Stone, Dalsell Turner and Cnmmings
today spoke in favor of the repeal cf the
Sherman law, but no one held that the
act was responsible for the present busi
ness depression. Covert favored the
restoration of silver. Hatch, in speak
ing in favor of free coinage, advocated a
caucus of the democrats of the bouse
and senate to interpret the Chicago
platform, every man of whom should
pledge "his life, bis fortuue and (his
sacred honor" to 'abide by its decision.
Taylor of Tennessee announced himself
in favor of free coinage. Cannon of Il
linois created surprise by speaking
against the repeal of the Sherman law.
The country, he said, was in a bad con
dition, but be did not think the case
had been properly diagnosed. Under
the Sherman act and under the Bland
act, there bad gone into currency $300,
000,000 of silver, which was as gold, re
deemable in gold and circulating side by
side with gold. He wanted both metals

Loso Island Citv, L. I., Aug. 26. A
frightful accident occurred tonight at
B nub wick Junction, on the Long Island
railway. A Kockaway train ran into
the rear end of a Manhattan Beach train
about 11 :35 o clock tonight, telescoping
several of the cars. Sixteen dead have
been taken from the wreck, and their
bodies are now lying in Havemeyer's
tinshop at Laurel Hill, which has been
converted into a temporary morgue. It
is now estimated that the number of in
jured will reach in the neighborhood of
thirty-five or forty people, many of
whom, it is believed, will die. Owing
to the lack of telegraphic facilities and
the lateness of the hour, it Is with the
utmost difficulty that any particulars
can be obtained. The accident, it is
said, was due to the negligence of the
tower man at Laurel Hill, who let the
Rockawav train in on the section before
the Manhattan Beach train bad pulled

Yetst sent to the clerk's defk and had
read a communication from the director
of the mint, giving statistics of the
quantity of silver bullion purchased

act, its cost, amount coined, etc. Vent
summed up all of these figures to show
that if all the silver dollars and subsid
iary silver were rescinded at the ratio
proposed in the hill (20 to V, there still
would be a profit to the treasury on the
whole silver transaction since 1878 of
over $15,250,000. He intimated pretty
broadly that Carlisle, in bis letter to
Senator Yoorhees on the same subject,
had not treated the subject fairly.
Hill of New York then delivered his
There were those, Hill said, who
do not wholly agree with the presi
dent in his diagnosis of the malady
now affecting the body politic, and did
not hastily join with bim in the recite
conclusion that the financial millenium
is to come the moment the Sherman
law is removed. There were some, who
bad given the subject attention', who
believed the cause of the present depres
sion was deeper and beyond toe t-tier-
man bill ; that its foundations were laid
in the evil hours of 1873, when the coun
try unwittingly laid aside the financial
policy that bad been its guide since the
foundation of the government. The ex
isting financial disturbance, Hill found,
was attributable to three distinct causes.
First It was the natural inevitable
result of many years of real or fictitious
Second Some portion of the present
panic could be traced to a concerted
effort on the part of monometalists to
produce it in order to discredit silver.
Third That no matter what else may
bave contributed to the present finan
cial condition, it would 'not (be denied
that the silver-purchase law bad been
at least in part and possibly most
largely instrumental in producing the
Hill did not believe the simple repeal
of the Sherman law would at one re
store abundant prosperity, but that
many years would be required to recover
from the present disturbance. He com
pared his own course in declaring for re
peal with the president s course in fail
ing to refer to it until this late day.
He was a blmetalist, and stood for free
coinage at a proper ratio. Had the
Sherman law been repealed at the last
session or in the special session on the
6th of March, the United States would
bave escaped the present panic and
precluded the closure of the Indian
mints. Independent free bimetallic
coinage in the United States is not con
sistent with the counsels of monetary
science. While repeal would not bring
parity, it would facilitate it by bringing
that newfangled monetary theory gold
monometalisin, begotten in the em
braces of ignorance with rapacity at
least to an unequivocal crucial test. The
permanent remedy for our financial dif
ficulty was to return to the binietalism
that existed prior to 1873. Hill favored
an increase of national bank circulation
as proposed in the pending bill. Con
tinuing, be said he regarded the ques-1
tlon of ratio as not timely, and as of the
least consequence, but, If changed at all,
It should not be enlarged but diminished
to 15'', the Latin Union ratio. He
should refuse to follow in the footsteps
of any administration that sought to
place the democratic party in a false
position and lead it into the very camp
of the enemy. The president must rely
Upon republican votes to carry out any
such suicidal policy. He bad not be
lieved, however, that any such course
would be taken by the president of his
own volition, or even under the inspira
tion of indiscreet advisers, until clearer
evidence shall be furnished than that
now exists. He deprecated hasty action
in the formation of a definite financial
plan, and predicted failure of the at
tempt to impose a gold standard on In
dia. Meanwhile the prompt reeal of
the Sherman law was demanded as a
measure of temporary relief. I-et us
legislate upon the financial question,
said Hill, and then return te our homes
next Iecember. He said that Ids dis

Washington-, Aug. 25. There is con
siderable anxiety in congress regarding
Vice-President Stevenson's views on
the pending silver legit lation, especially
as, according to the recent canvass, it
appears that if the three appointed sen
ators from the silver states are allowed
to take their seats the senate will be a
tie and Stevenson would have the cast
ing vote. Beyond expressing the belief
that the session will be protracted, the
vice-president refuses to talk. It is
urged, that be, being a member of the
administration, will vote for an admin
istration measure as a matter of course.
There is a good deal of compromise talk.
It is said the steering committee made
a tormal offer to the silver men for the
passage of the repeal bill accompanied
by a law directing the purchase of 300,-
000,000 ounces of silver at a specified
time, all purchases to closs thereafter,
and that the silver men bave the mat

San Jose, Cal., Aug. 25. A meeting
was held last evening in Saratoga to con

labor in lieu of Asiatic. A committee
reported there were over 200 white
men ii San Jose willing to work and
that all the orchardists seem willing to
give employment to whites. One or
chardist neer Saratoga is said to have
been annoyed by tramps; but since the
officers have segregated the laborers and
tramps a decided change of feeling has
taken place, and there is now a great
demand for white laborers at $1 a day

established, and the total number regis

a large number of these have found em

that Wednesday night, while the vessel
was anchored about four miles from

a hurricane. The vessel was driven on
her beam ends, and foremast carried
away and five of the, crew swept ever

situation. At the close of the speech
making they formed for parade, and,
preceded by a band, marched up Wash
ington street, completely blocking that
thoroughfare. At the corner of Wash
ington and Clark streets a United States
mail wagon attempted to get through
the crowd. Word was sent to Inspector
Roes, who was in his office in the city
hall. The inspector walked over to the
corner of Clark street, and, calling a
couple of policemen, ordered them to
clear a passage for the mail wagon.
This angered the crowd. Near the side
walk was a buggy belonging to J. H.
Martindale, whom the crowd directed to
get out of the way. This be could not
do, and the crowd seized the buggy and
threw it upon the sidewalk. It was
when Inspector Koss at this moment,
followed by three officers, rushed into
the crowd and ordered it back that the
Ross was struck on the head with a
paving stone and felled to the earth.
The officer regained his feet and attacked
the maddened crowd. With powerful
blows he knocked down several rioters,
his men standing by him pluckily. The
crowd was too strong for them, however,
and when Sergeant Swift went down
with a broken head, Inspector Ross
drew bis revolver and kept the mob at
bay for an instant. Inspector Shea
hurried from the city ball at the head of
a dozen men, and charged the crowd.
The police by this time had got the bet
ter of the mob and bad forced it back,
after a lively struggle, In which clubs,
stones and revolver-handles were freely
used on both sides. A few minutes
later Inspector Lewis came up at the
head of seventy men, followed later by
patrol-wagons bearing 200 more police
men. The crowd, which numbered sev
eral thousand by this time, was quickly
dispersed. When Mayor Harrison, a
few minutes later, learned of the fight
he ordered that hereafter there should
be no more parades nor meetings allowed.
After the men had dispersed at the
citv ball they again assembled at the
Lake Front, where speech-making' waa
resumed. Mayor Harrison addressed
the crowd and implored the men to go
(back to their homes and manfully en
dure their temporary misfortunes. He
declared they would gain nothing by
parades and demonstrations, which he
would not tolerate. When he had fin
ished the crowd cheered the mayor.
