FACTS I'OR TEXAS FOLKS-
continued from fiust mgk.
ministration nnd Reed silvor suagestion.
It was a I'ightrough slap in tho face. When
this congress met it was a frequent
thing to hear of the abuse that repub-
lican senators were pouring out on IlHrri-
sou. Tho ri. son v. .is not that he differed
with them as to proper policies of govern-,
nient. He had no opportunity to
show at that time what lie de-
sired. Tho r|unrrel with him was becmno
he did not dis'ribnto spoils to suit them.
They wero anxious to hit him and they did
it. Next to tho silver bill, it is said tho
federal election law is most dear to him.
Will they be satisfied with the one blow?
They say not. They want to hit the bump-
tious Reed also. They want lo show hi'n
that they have not forgoUori hia treatment,
o« them when they have come to him on
occasions and naked that bills in which
they were interested should be taken up.
Ho ha1! wrltton in the magazines about tho
necessity for a federal election law. Who
knows that when his pet bill comes up be-
fore them they may conclude to kill two
birds, Harrison aud Reed, with one stone.
WAfiinwiTtrtJ, Juno 21.'—The house bill,
supplementary to the act of March 22, 1882,
in reference, to bigamy was taken up.
It prov'des that all funds or property
lately belonging to the Mormon church
shall be devoted to tho use and benefit of
common schools In that state. Huticr of-
fered an amendment devoting the funds to
tho endowment of institutions of learning
in Utah aud for that purpose turning
thorn over to tho general board of educn"<
tion of tho church of Jesus Christ of I,ot-
ter Day saints subject to thorules and regu-
tious to be approved of by the president of
the United States, aud not to bo used in
disseminating, teaching, upholding or prop-
agating the doctrine and practices of poly
gamy or plural marriages.
E imuuds opposed the amendment. Voor-
hoes intimated that tho senator from Ver-
mont was in too great a hurry to get at the
results of a litigation that whs Hot con-
cluded ".vith; that tho litigation was still
undecided in the supremo court of the
United States. Ho thought tint this was
not the proper time to decide whoro tho
fruits of tho litigation should go. Butler
also agreed that tho proposed legislation
was premature. A vote was taken on But-
ler's amendment, and, as no quorum voted,
Butler withdrew his amendment. Voor-
bees moved to postpone tho bill till the sec-
ond Tuesday in December next. By that
time, ho said, tho supremo court would
have reached a termination of the litigation
now pending. Edmunds ouposcd tho mo-
tion, and said that tho bill didn't touch or
ailed the property at all until after the su-
p/erne court had disposed of everybody's
rights, public and private. Voorhees' mo-
tion was not agreed to—yeas 20, nays 25.
The bill was then passed without di-
Mr. Morrow moved to proceed to considera-
tion of the senate iilll to establish an edu-
cational fund and applv tho proceeds of
public lands and receipts from certain land
grants of railroad companies to tho more
complete endowment and support of
colleges for the advancement of science and
industrial education. The motion was
agreed to and the bill was taken up. After
a long debate the bill w ent over without
Mr. Edmuuds offered an amendment to
tho sundry civil bill to pay to the widow of
Chief Justice Waito JS750, eqr.al to tho
balance of his salary for one year, and ap-
propriating *2500 for a tablet in tho
interior of too Washington monument
stating briefly tho history of the structure.
Tho followinK senate bill was placed on
the calendar: "To extend tho jurisdiction
of the supreme court of tho United States
to include judgments and decreeB of the
highest courts of tho Cherokee, Creek,
Seminole, Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes
of Indians respectively,
After a brief cxecutivo sossion the senate
Aflor tho reading aud approval of yester-
day's journal Bland of Missouri moved to
reconsider the vote by which tho yeas and
nays were order-.d upon McKinlev's motion
to table his (Mr. Bland's) appeal from the
decision of tno chair yesterday, declining
to entertain his motion to tako the silvc-r
bill from the speaker's table. Ho announced
that he desired to withdraw his appeal, bat
Mcliinley insisted on the vote, so Bland's
motion to reconsider was put and defeated
—90 to 12o. Tile regular order being de-
manded the speaker said tho Question had
been discussed yesterday as to the condition
of the silver bill, which bad been referred
by tho sneaker, and a record of which in
the jpiu'cal had not been concurred in by
the house had been said to have
been erased. The rules required
that such bills be referred, and a statement
to that effect should bo put in tho journal
and a record of tho statement was made
and the house saw fit not to permit it to bos
come a part of the journal. The chair was
of the opinion that tho bill should bo re-
ferred to tho committee on coinage from a
provision of tha rule that ail proposed legis-
lation must be referred to certain commits
tees. Under these circumstances and in
conformity with the rules the chair an-
nounced to the houcc that tho bill had been
referred, was now referred to thocommit-
tco on coinage, weights and measures. An
appeal could be taken if the house desired
to express its judgment upon the question.
Bland of Missouri immediately appealed
and proceeded to argue that the appropri-,
ating clause in the original liouso bill as it
camo from the senate was similar
in terms and purpose, and that tho
bill was not subject to reference to
the committee of tho whole. Besides
he held that the point was made too late.
Mr. Springer of Illinois declared that the
silve- bill was the only one which had been
subjected to this kind of treatment. Mr.
Peters of Kansas said that all general
appropriation bills took the same course.
Mr. Springer denied the statement and
challenged tho Rpeaker, or any ono else, to
produce a similar case. There was an at-
tempt to revolutionize the rules. The
rules themselves were revolutionary in con-
ception. Mr. Crisp of Georgia said that it
was evident that there was deliberate in-
tention to prevent a direct vote on this
question. Mr. Townsend of Colorado said
t:iat he had voted as he had because ho felt
that it was hia duty to his people to en-
deavor to get free coinage. The demone-
tization of silvor was an infamous crime
and his peoplo desired to reverse its ovii.
Mr. Morrow of California contonded in
opposition to the speaker's ruling
that tho bill wa3 on the speaker's
tablo and open for the disposition
of the house. Harmauu of Oregon said
that tho silver question was the issuo of an
election three weeks ago in his state. Ho
had agreed to support the republican state
platform, declaring in favor of free coin-
age. These were his sailing orders. Bars
fine of Nevada said that the members of
the silver producing states were mostly
new membeis and not trained parliamen-
tarians, but ho could read plain English,
and when the rules said that the bill must
bo considored in tho committee of the
whole, it did not say and did not mean it
was to go tho coinage committee. Perkins
of Kansas said that there was a purpose not
to secure free coinage but to force through
a measure that the president would bo
obliged to veto. Tho democratic party
would wreck tho business interests of the
country if in so doing they could advance
the interests of the democratic party, He
was a free coinage man [derisive laughter
on the democratic side] but he was not,
sent here to vote with the speaker when he
was wrong iwhen he was acting under tho
Henderson of Iowa in supporting the
speaker's position,said ho wanted silver leg-
islation. He did not care a suap for money
lenders of Wall street or great mine owners
of the west. He stood for the laborer and for
the farmer. The bill would come back
from the committee. Bland asked: "Will
this free coinage bill came back?"
Henderson—"I decline to yield." [Demo-
IUs bouse liili ffiil sej»e TTivU sucU iccoaj-
mendallons touching the senate amend
ments as the cominitteoraay determine.
Tho debate having closed, Mr. MeKinley
moved to table Mr. Bland's appeal from the
speaker's decision, sending the silver bill to
the coinage committee. The yeas and nays
were taken, resulting yeas 144, nays 117. So
tho appeal was laid on t ho table. Tho fol-
lowing republicans voted with tho demo-
crats on Mr. MclCitiloy's motion: Messrs.
Bar'ine, Connell, Dahaven, Hermann,
Kelly, Morrow, Townsend nnd Fuustan.
These democrats voted with the republicans
in f tvor of tho motion: Messrs. Buckalew,
Dutiphy, Fitch, Gci«:,euhtimer, Marsh, Mc-
Adoo, Mutchler, O'Neill of Massachusetts,
Quinn, Wiley and Stahlneoker. Tho fol-
lowing members recorded as absont or not
voting: Biggs, Mason, Hopkins, Husk, Si
Mr. MeKinley. upon tho announcenjont of
the vote said: "So the appeal is tabled and
the bill stands referred to tlio coinage com-
The house then adjourned. The clerk an-
nounced that the democratic caucus set for

GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS.
MR. pi.aike speaks.
New York, Juno 21.—[Special]—Tho Her-
ald prims a double leaded Washington spe-
cial, saying: "It happened that Secretary
Blaine had the opportunity of airing tha
views of the president Tuesday In three dif
forent ways—In bis letter to congress, in the
reply to tho telegram from tho millers' con-
vention at Minneapolis and in a speech bo-
fore the senate appropriation com mitcoe. Mr.
Blaine had the opportunity of repeating on
the some day in throo different ways the ob-
jections tho administration holds against
tho MeKinley bill. In tho written state-
ment intended for publication the secre-
tary necessarily was confined to the pro-
prieties of expression in vogue in official
life, in giving utterance to his views, but,"
continues tho Herald's special, "in the sen-
ate appronriation committee, it is said, ho
waived this restraint and delivered a lecture
on political economy to Mr. Allison of Iowa
that was not intended for tho eye or tho ear
of tho public. Reference wan made to this
last scene In these dispatches,"but according
to one of tho auditors, no account yet pub-
lished does the matter justice.
Tho question under consideration was tho
necessity for Increased appropriations in
completing tho record of the pan^Amerlcau
congress. Senator Halo of Maine, v, ho is
on tho committor, said something which
drew out Mr. Blaine, and he proceeded in
tho most impassioned manner nnd with
much of his old time fervor and eloquenco
to toll the committee what in his judgment
would bo tho effcct of the passage of the
MeKinley turiff bill.
The democratic member of the committee,
Mr. Blackburn, was delighted with the
tone of Blaine's view, and ho is reported to
have .said, "I wish you .wero not Sir. Secret
tary, nnd wero in this sanate to raise your
voice against this MeKinley bill."
Mr. Blaine said: "I wish so too. It is tho
most dangerous, if not the most infamous
measure that was over concocted by any
party. The one vote for this bill will wreck
tho republican party. If I we.'o in tho sen-
ate I would rather have my right arm torn
out of its socket than to vote for this bill."
Senator Allison with some feeling said:
"Yon are winking at Senator Black burn
across tho tablo and are just saying this to
Mr. Blaine said: "I was winking at Sen-
ator Blackburn because ho was winking at
me, but I say solemnly that the MeKinley
bill is an outrage and ought to be killed by
tho senate." Mr. Blaine then finished the
remarks he had outlined on tho importance
of tha appropriation and retired.
the scene exaggerated.
Washington, Juno 21.—Referring to the
published stories concerning tho soene in
the room of tho committee on appropria-
tions the other day, a gentleman who was
nresect said to night that the wholo otTair
had been greatly misapprehended.
Tho discussion which took placo was
not in relation to tho general schedules
of the MeKinley bill, but the feature which
Mr. Blaine condemned wn3 that of giving a
freo market in the United Stales to tho
products of sugar planters of the southern
contineut, and not asking in return freo
markets for the products of ot:r own farm-
ers where we can get them merely for the
asking. Mr. Biaino says corn would not
be selling in Nebraska for 18 cents a bushel
if the markets of Latiu America were open
to our products.
The president to-day appointed tho fol-
lowing commissioners at largo to the
world's fair at Chicago; Gaston Q. Alien
of New York in the placo of E. H. Atnmi-
down, declined, with Louis Fitzgerald of
New York as aiteruato and Wm. Lindsey of
Kentucky in the place of Samuel W. Iu-
man of Georgia, declined, with Pat J.
Welch of Georgia as alternate.

No one knows whether It was from the fall-

that falling slate caused the signal but
there Is a possibility that, the miners are

-At the dem-
mr. baisry's teist.
Dallas, Tex,, June 21.—Mr. Bryan T.
Barry, in charge of the Cook campaign, said
to The News man that he was sending out
circulars intended for democrats generally,
and of course specially for his friends, in
which he again calls attention to tho at-
tempt of persons who are not entitled to
participate iu democratic conventions, al-
ready made manifest, to dominate the con-
ventions of tno party, aad urging upon
thoso who believe in the purity of the or-
ganization to see to it that these parties do
not succeed. Mr. Barry's test is as follows:
_ "Resolved, that ho person shall be per-
mitted to participate in this convention
who refused to vote tho democratic ticket
at the last election and who will not pledge
himself to vote tho ticket at tho ensuing
election; nor shall any person be permitted
to participate who belongs to any secret,
oath-bound organization and who hab
promised to conform his political conduct
to the sentiments and control of such or-
Mr. Barry thinks that this resolution
should be iutroduced as a test inevery dem-
ocratic primary hold in the state, and if it
is not adopted and all persons who are not
qualified under it excluded the convention
should be held at the time by thoso demo-
crats who aro'n favor of the resolution in
the precincts sending delegates to the coun-
ty convention, and if the resolution Is not
indorsed by tho county conventions then
straight county conventions should also be
held and dolegates sent to tho state and all
To make tho matter more plain and
pointed, Mr. Barry contends that conven-
tions which will not adopt this test can not
bo said to represent tho democracy of the
precincts, and of course as the county, dis-
trict and state conventions are simply com-
posed of delegates appointed by and from
tho primaries, the whole convention system
of the state would bo contaminated and
could not be said to represent the democ-
Mr. Barry says that the first part of this
resolution has been adopted for sevoral
years in many counties in the stato and is
well known, aud the last part of it, referring
to secret organizations, is clearly justified
by the action of the state convention at Gal-
veston in 1S8B iu excluding delegates ap-
pointed from Cooko county and seating the

showing the issue in full which he would

The News reporter met Mr. J. R. Ziegler
of Donton .In Mr. Barry's office and in re-
ply to inquiries Mr. Ziegler stated that the
anti-commission party in bis part of the
state were not organized, but were fast bo-
coming so and represented a fair divide.
Among that party were a large number of
sincere, honest and intelligent men nnd
they were working up tho matter the best
