Washington, Aug. 28. The galleries
of the house were crowded long.before
the time for assembling,' by persons
Interested In the result of the ballot
ing on. the silver question, after the
two-weeks debate. When the speaker
rapped for order at noon, nearly ev
ery seat in the hall was filled. While
waiting for tho call to order, Bland
freely ..admitted the claims of the'nntl
fllver men of a majority of fifty were
well founded and might be exceeded.
Weaver of New York, appeared at the
bar of the house and was sworn In.
Then the clerk reported the resolution
containing the order of procedure on
the silver question, .providing "the vote
first on the free coinage of silver at,,
the ratia if 16 to 1. Then the Wilson
Ixlll repealing the silver purchase
clause of the Sherman act was read,
and Bland offered his first amend
ment for free coinage at the ratio of 16
to 1. It was defeated: yeas, 123, nays,
22(5, amid applause from the antl-sllVer
men who did not expect so large, a ma
jority. The nay vote was composed of
108 republicans and 118 democrats.
There was great surprise at the ma
jority against free coinage, it being
nearly double the largest estimate
made by the antl-sllver canumlttee.
Bland from his seat at the extreme
left of the speaker, smiled grimly as
he heard the result. The vote on the
question of free coinage at a ratio of
17 to 1, resulted as follows: yeas, 100,
nays, 240. On this vote, beside the loss
of the populist votes, were several
negative votes, from those who voted
In favor of a ratio of 16 to 1. The
slight gains were made on the higher
ratios were not unexpected by some of
the leaders and it was the impression
of some that the ratio of 20 to 1 would
poll the largest vote recorded In fa
vor of free coinage The result of the
call was: yeas, 119, nays, 222. On the
amendment of 16 to 1, 100 democrats,
13 republicans, and 11 populists voted
yea. Among the republicans were
Sweet of Idaho, and Doollttle and Wil
son of Washington. Ellis and Hermann
of Oregon, voted with the nays against
tho amendment. The . Wilson repeal
bill passed by a vote of 239 to 110.
While the senate had under discus
sion the National bank circulation . bill,
the house bill repealing the purchase
clause of the Sherman act was pre
sented and immediately referred to
the committee on finance. Voorhees
stated that there would be a meeting
of the finance committee tomorrow,
when there would be very prompt ac
tion in connection with the house bill
and with the measure already reported
from the finance committee.
With the close of the roll call, the
clerk announced every single pair, spe
cifying with great particularity the
side on which the member would have
voted if present. This Is a common
custom in the senate1, but very unusu
al in the house, and it indicated with
what extreme care the pairing con.
tracts must have been made. It is very
uncommon also, to And so few mem
bers pairing, and the roll call revealed
only eight absentees, who had not pro
vided to make their votes count in the
total result. .With a wave of applause
and jubilation- which swept over the
hall, as the crushing defeat of free
coinage was announced, the whole
house seemed to take a deep breath
and lose interest in .what Was to fol
low in the next few votes. Those were
on various questions, but every one
knew that the ratio question was dead.
Man after man who had voted aye on
the first roll call, voted nay on the sec
ond and many others left the chamber,
Indifferent to the result. When It came
to the 18 to 1 amendment, the chorus
of dissatisfaction which aros when
Hatch of Missouri Insisted on the de
mand for yeas and nays, showed that
the house was in no temper for bluff
or delay. Bland did not Join in the de
mand. The vote n the second ratio
amendment made a slightly better
showing for the silver . men, not be
cause of any considerable increase In
the vote, but by falling off in the lum
ber of its adversaries. By the time the
third vota was called. Bland recovered
wind enough to make a demand for
the yeas aid nay himself, although he
did not stay- In his seat long enough
to see how things were going, and the
pilver men who united in their efforts
to prevent a further roll call, con
cluded to let things go and put every
body on record on every phase of the
- 'ANOTHER RIOT IN CHICAGO. '
!Qhlcago, Aug. 28. Another meeting
&i the unemployed was held on the
Lake front today, about 3,000 men be
ing present The police arrested one
man who was urging the people to go
armed and fight the authorities. Aside
from this there was no excitement on
the Lake front After the speeches the
crowd wandered in an aimless manner
along VanBuren street until Siegel &
Cooper's big general store was reached.
Here a. number of men were suddenly
seized with the idea, of entering the
store and made a rush for the doorway,
shouting and yelling. The shoppers in
the store were badly frightened and
yere hurrying for other exits when a
(ore of police arrived and charged the
mob which scattered with great haste.

tion with the alleged bribery case. He

nial and a committee, was appointed
Then Chairman Thatcher of the awards

vits from the officials of the Carry Safe

Cheyenne, Wyo., Aug. 28. When the
news-that the senate declines to seat
the appointed senators revives the In
terest here in the question of the gov

oming. Although Governor Osborn has
declared several times that he would

change his position on the question and
call the session at once.

St. Louis, Aug. 28. A Republican
special from Savannah, Ga.,'sa.ys: "Cy
clone swept." those two words only
partially stated the condition of the
Tybee Island section lying at tho
mouth of the Savannah river tonight,
which was struck by the most terrlflo
cyclone that ever visited this section
o the country. The quarantine station
one of the finest in the South Atlantic
states twenty-four hours ago, is now a
ictal ruin with the exception of the
doctors' rerldence. Wharves have gone;
the new fumigating plant which cost
the city so much money, is at the bot
tom of the sea and nine vessels which
were waiting there for their release to
come to the city, are high and dry on
the marsh, and no doubt will be total
wrecks. The Conshne, Is the only ves
sel which managed to keep afloat. The
tug Puulson arrived In . the city at Tl
this afternoon. She brought up about
Mxty passengers from Tybee. Revers,
cne of them, stated that four negroes
engaged In clearing the railroad tracks,
were drowned, as were also a sailor
and cabin boy on the schooner Harold,
which was on her side near the beach.
It is reported that eight of the crew
of a terrapin sloop which went ashore
on the south end, are drowned. It is
Impossible to learn all the details of
the disaster. There are many stories
afloat of numerous other dead, but
while there Is doubt that many of them
are true, they cannot be verified to

Particulars have been received of tn
adventure which the British bark Caith
mere had whilst on a voyage from Pis
agua to New York. After rounding ihe
Horn she ran Into an iceberg, quanti
ties of broken ice falling on the ves
sel's deck. Captain Thompson gives tr-e
following account of the affair: We :ot
sail on Jaunary 2d, and rounded tho
Cape on February 2Sth. As we came on
the easterly side we ran Into thin mint
and met a few small Icebergs. I dl'ln't
worry much about the Ice. v.ocaiwe 1
had been round the Horn twenty times
anil had seen lots of ..t. 'mat day a
young Swede fell overboard, and
though we hove to and lowered the
boats, we failed to pick him up. The lee
became more plentiful is we moved
along and in a couple of dayj we ran
across more bergs than I ever fraw'ln
the Southern seas before. March 1st,
we were about 300 miles iff H? Falk
land Islands. At that time, with tho
extra lookout and the watjh nl-tt, we
crashed Into a berg at 10 o'clock ac
night. The bowsprit 18 In .wo sections,
composed of hollow steel, 21 inches In
diameter at the' base. Tae forwiud
section of the bowsprit was Just tele
scoped Into the other part, and then
the whole thing was Jabbed right Into
th ' forward bulkhead and clean
through to the nold. On dock, beams
were brokin and the timbers were
ripped up. The tee was broken uwny
with tile force of the collision, and it
came tumbling down on the forward
deck In massive chunks until It wus
plied high above the bulwarks and the
vessel looked as If he was :t turtle
back. The deck slopes buck a good
deal toward the stern and pieces of
Ice rolled down off the heaps and Mid
right along the alleys on the porr and
starboard sides until they struck the
stern rail and careened over into t''o
water. The sailors who were nslefp in
the deckhouse grabbed tneir clothes
and seaboots, and rushed out. One of
them, known only, as Dutch Albert,
was struck by one of these pieces of
ice. The wind coming .troiinj the berg
formed a sort of eddy, and drove us
against U a second time, but the infs.'.j
pact then was light, and we Buffered''
no Injury. We sheered off a bit with tlm tV
rebound, and had a chance to size uX
the berg. It was easily three times .
higher than the truck of our mal j
mnat. That would leave It about eighty
hundred feet above the water. As sooty ,
as we got clear, I had soundings madb'
and the pumps examined; we mndo up,,;
water, though some of our plates werVv;
sprained. Our collision bulkheads held I
out In great shape. We. flounueiad
around In a region of icebergs for eight
days. On March 9th, In the afternoon,
It began to rain; I saw deliverance
near, for rain in that section is usu
ally followed by a southwest wind.
Sure enough the wind came up, and
we made Ro Janeiro on May 2Sth, and
made New York, our port of destina
tion, without mDshap, In July.
The Cashmere .used to run to San
Francisco, some years ago, being then
In the Fernle Lino, and commanded by
Captain Lyons. On one voyage she was
chartered to can y a cargo of wheat at .
five pounds a ton. Old timers remem
ber how, after she was loaded and tho
surveyors had been on board, the cap
tain filled all his staterooms and every
Fpace he could find with bags of wheat,
and so made a number more of five
pound notes for her owners.
