Washington, September 13.—[Special]—
Both the senato and house were to-

in the city.

Mr. Sowden of Pennsylvania then Intro-
duced a resolution demanding the return of
absentees. Both parties opposed this, and
filibustered on it until the hour of adjourn-
It is now evident that members are sorely
tired of staying here to await the action of
the senate finance committee in their effort
to incubate a tariff bill, and it is furthor
evident that they are not going to remain.
There was barely 100 members in the
house to-day, and in a week there will prob-
be half that number.
The fact is every member is anxious for ad-
journment, but neither wants to make the
move. There are a number of democrats
like Mr. Oates, who would introduce an
adjournment resolution and demand a vote,
but tlie party leaders will not allow it. The
republicans are in the position of the man
who held to the bull's tail, they would like
to turn loose but can't. It would be an
acknowledgment that they could not agree
upon a tariff bill. The matter of adjourn-
ment has now resolved itself into this: The
democratic house must either send a resolu-
tion to the senate, or else congress will re-
main in session doing nothing until after

DREADFUL FOREST FIRES
Raging in Michigan—Death and Destruction
Wrought by the Element.
. Bat City, Mich., September 18.—The
forest fires which have been raging at various
points along the bay shores north and
northeast of here are not being subdued, and
It looks now as if great damage would result
before they are checfced. News from various
points up the line go to show that the fires
are absolutely beyond control, and that in
the present condition of things the gravest
results are to be feared. Arenac county is
particularly a heavy sufferer. In many
places houses and other property have al-
ready been destroyed and at others the peo-
ple are now either fighting for their lives or
flying to save them. Quinn's logging camp
has been entirely wiped out, the men sav-
ing their spare clothing. West of Standish
two families are reported as probably per-
ished, as at last accounts they were entirely
surrounded by the fires. In Tawas section
the fires are still sweeping on and solid sec-
tions of pine are going down like wax,
A DANGEROUS NEGRO.
He Is Ordered from the I.adles' Coach and

CoRSlCAXA, Tex., September 13.—This af-
afternoon, as the Cotton Belt train arrived
from Waco, an impudent negro cook from
the Mallow hotel, named T. J. Wilkers, at-
tempted to get on the ladies' coach, when
Brakeman Baylor Fauntleroy ordered him
to stand back and let the ladies pass. He
cursed the brakeman, who struck him for
his impudence, whereupon ho drew a knife
and made a desperate attack upon Fauntle-
roy, cutting a gash in the back of his neck
about eight inches long and one inch deep—
a painful but not dangerous wound.
Wilkers was arrested arid jailed on a charge
of assault with intent to kill.

Mr. Piatt offered a resolution instructing
the committee on finance to inquire whether

be devised to relieve the people of the United

port of the interstate commerce commission
upon the subject and said that under the
existing practice a large discrimination

a Navarro county republican club next Sat-

Tlie term "protectionists" was used by

his canvass shortly somewhere, and It is said
that Judge A. W. Terrell will meet him, as
Mr. Mills will not be in the district.

DALLAS LOCAL DOTS.
LONDON, September 13.—[Special]—It is

develop his Asiatic possessions, secure com-

diplomacy for the extension of hi3 power

Dallas, Tex., September 13.—Mayor Con-

Denver, secretary of the deep water central
committee, informing him that the entire
committee will meet in Dallas on the 17th
of next month for the purpose of formulat-
ing a plan of action. It is thought that the
plan will include a sub-committee, headed
by Governor Evans of Colorado, whose
business it will be to present to congress
the demand of the people of the trans-Mis-
sissippi country for a first-class harbor on
the Texas coast.
Mayor Connor states that from what he

The insurrection in Afghanistan lias in-
creased the irritation between England and
Russia, and there is no doubt that a collision
in that quarter would not be unwelcome to
the latter power. That there would eventu-
ally be a railroad built as far us Irkutsk
was inevitable, but few expected the almost
precipitate haste with which preparations
for its construction aro now going on. Now
that the survey is completed and the mato-
rial is being ordered tlie work—significant
in its political tendencies and important in
its civilizing influence—will not bo further
delayed save by the inclemencies of the
winter season. Its completion will prove
that many parts of Siberia heretofore con-
sidered as barren wastes are fertile territory,
needing but little cult ivation and commu-
nication with populous centers to supportja
dense population. The branch to the trans-
Baikal provinco in the direction of tho
Chinese frontier will be a bid for trade with
that teeming country. The splendid suc-
cess of that portion of tho trans-Caspian
road already completed has no doubt en-
couraged the czar to continue to the extrem-
ities of his possessions. Merv, according to
a traveler, from a collection of tents and
mud hovels, has become a town with paved

both there and at Bokaru are shops where

HORSE VERSUS BICYCLE.
The Animal Wins a Fifty Mile Race for a
El Paso, Tex., Soptember 13.—The race
between a horse and bicycle from Silver
City to Doming, N. M., over a fifty mile
cortrse, came off to-day, and was won easily
by the horse. The time for the horse was
Sh. 40m., and for tho bicycle 411. 47m. This
result was due to the nature of the course,
which is the wagon road between the
two towns. The road Is through a canyon,
rough and hilly for the first tin miles, while
the last six miles is in heavy sand. The
race was the outcome of a wager of 250 head
of cattle aside, valued at $10 a head, mak-
ing a total value of $5000. The backers of
the horse were J. W. Clayton and John In-
gle. while Dr. W. S- Bolton backed the bi-
cycle. The rider of the bicycle was A.
J. Kennedy, an amateur wheelman from
Denver. A great deal of money cha-uged
bands on the result.
