The democrats again came out as victors IT: is, Judge Crisp and Mr. came were the only democrats present, am the fight was between Judge Crisp and his Mr. O'Ferrall, on the one hand and 1GO republicans .ind Tom Reed on the other. It was a great victory for tho demo- crats aad the question ii being asked tonight rf two'democrats can whip 1130 republicans iowmany democrats should it talte to whip the entire republican party? THE QURSIIDS AT ISSUE. "-The battle today was hko that of yesterday, over the Virginia contested election case of Venablevs. Laiigston. "Whan the house met there were five demo- crats and llK) republicans on the floor. Keetl immediately proceeded to count, and by count- ing himself nrst, middle and last, announced IKi members, a quorum, and the journal was read. Then Judge Crisp wanted to know why it tbe speaker's decision oft the point of order he raised yesterday was not in tho jour- nal, and moved to incorporate it. Tho motion of course, voted down by the republicans The speaker was, however, unable to count "but 164 members this time, two democrats "having retired, but he announced tha't there a quorum of the present members, as three ha-1 recently died and one had been un- seated. Jfldgo Crisp then questioned the accuracy cf Heed's count, and asked for tellers. Keec refused them, but shortly afterwards, at the request of McKinley, who wanted to be fair, complied. DETECTED FALSEHOOD. Tnder tho count by the tellers only Ifc members, including the speaker, could fee riuiiil, and Judge Crisp made a very stron; against the speaker's decision thai ici was a quorum, An hour was consumed in this argument by 10 republicans and Judge Crisp. Tlie irgument was so strong that Beet Ms, own decision, but said it was noi Keed was completely tattled at his .tempts to count a quorum (being so dias- for the test by tellers showed that he L-id counted decidedly wrong.

Uibt Keed called all his lieutenants ,nd him. A long conference ensued, and f before 5 o'clock the republicans gave up o and adjourned. 11 they tan get a quorum, however, it tomorrow. There v.ero iraiij amusing incidents during Iiedaj -lo'iy democratic members were out Ttlie and occasionally one of them ,-cnld jeep in. Keed saw Judge Holman, of nHiau.i, take a peep, and called him, iid great republican laughter. Just be- uro the republicans gave up the fight, lacy made a proposition to Judge Crisp that if be would them to vote on this case and cnseat V enable, they would take up no more ontaste-l th "3 suasion. Jacge Crisp quickly spurned the proposi- ;on, with the statement that he was making ia fight for the democrats on principle, and cuatlic tvou'd enter into no dicker whatsoever. One sltle or tho other must fall. Reed's temper rose at this refusal, and he "oanted a quorum, but couldn't prove it and we up. REED IS MAD. Toiiight "Reed mm a perfect fury.

They Will Mold Their Final Session Next Monday. "WASHINGTON, September confer- ence on the tariff hill this morning did not touch upon matters of public interest. The proceedings were confined to action upon pro forma amendments, or those involving no pronormced differences of opinion. Sugar, "b.nding twine and tho tariff commission clacaes were not touched. It is the under- standing of the democratic conferees that the daily sessions of the conferance are to be purely formal, and that points of real impor- tance at issue are to he brought forward only after the republican managers have first ad- justed their differences. It ia the metal schedule really the principal obstacle to the agreomeu] by the republican conferees, the senate con- ferees insisting on its amendments low ering duties, and the house confeieos insisting on the restoration of duties In the bill as it passed tho house. Inasmuch aa on mttet other mat- ters of importance, they have yielded to the demands of the senate, it is s.iid that the sugar schedule has boon agrted to Ly tho republic- ans, but formal action is withheld until other matters of difference are compromised. Tho general belief is now that the confereea will hold their final session oil Monday, and that congress adjourn about a week laier.

Some place the prob- able number of killed at forty or fifty. A special from Reading to The Inquirer says: George R. Knsrcher, an eminent railroat lawyer, of Pottaville, who also has a law office in Philadelphia, is among the killed. Persons who were well acquainted -with him have identified his crushed body in tho debris of a Pullman car. NVilliamD.

FIVE HUKDIHED A TnrJtlsH Man-of-War Founders at Sea. Osman Fas It a Amonu IHe Lost. LONDON, September from Hiogo state that the Turkish man-of-war Ertogroul has foundered at sea and that 000 of her crew wero drowned. The Ertogroul was a wooden frigate-built cruiser of tons-displacemen t. She mounted forty-one guns of small caliber, and was built in 1863. Osman Pah.sa and Ali Pasha, envoys of tho sultan to Iho emperor of Japan, wore passengers on the Ertogroul and were drowned. Osman Pasha, whose victory over tho Rus- sians at him high rank as a fight- ing general, was on hoard, and was lost. He, tiad been on ail official visit to Japan, having been entrusted with a special mission from the sultan to the rnikado. The progress of the "Ertogroul" since she left Constantinople for the east, many mouths ago, has been a most undignified aiid ludicrous one. She left Turkey a'lort of money, it being under- stood that supplies were to be sent for her use to the ports at which she was to call. Tlie result was that her sojourn in those countries was indefinitely prolonged, in conse- quence of home not being able to keep their promises. In this way she lost some her crew, and the officers were many times on the verge of rebellion, induced by starva- tion. The government of cities visited re- fused to remit harbor dues and grant other privileges that were of right due her as a Turkish man-of-war, on the ground that she was not sailing in that character, there not be- ug powder enough on board to enable her crew tire regulation salutes. After many adven- .uros, only worthy of an opera boulfo navy, the ".Ertogroul" finally arrived in Japanese waters, and it was on her return voyage that ihe disaster occurred. A "Wreck In hffexico. CITY OP MEXICO, September terrible accident happened today on the Mexican rail- way. Two trains going in opposite directions ran into each other at Hinconada and the cars piled on one another and completely wrecked. Ten persons were killed and sev- eral otuers wounded. _ WIIX NOT BE 'TAKEN BACK. Vice President Welib Says None of the Strikers Will Get work. ALBANY. N. Y.

Efforts were made by various counties to lave their representation increased, but the convention refused to disturb the symmetry of the committee's report and Ex-Gov- ernor Alcon made an earnest appeal to the onvention to so apportion tho state as to give he negroes control of the lower house of the egislature. He argued that such course would gain the confidence of the blacks and would gradually elevate them o an appreciative responsibility of citizenship. 7he new proposition met with, no encourage- ment, and the committee's report was not amended to conform to his views.

WILL HELP THE CAUSE WSA.I O'BBIEIT SAYS OF FOUB'S PROMINENT LEADERS ARE ARRESTED The Impression in London IB That the Oov eraiaent Has Made a Serious Mis- Jen News. DUBLIN, September busiest plac in Dublin today is the headquarters of th land league. The nationalists are calling in constant streatn to learn the latest news in re- gard to tlie arrests, and to consult on plans o action for the immediate future. Mr. Dillon who came on to Dublin last night, is tlie cente of an animated circle. Ko note of despondency Is detected in the utterances of the leaders; o: the contrary there seems to be freah confidence and new enthusiasm. In stead of regarding the arrests a calamity the prevailing tendency istorejoice at them as a blessing in disguise. The action of Balfour, the nationalists hold to bare been an immense tactical blunder for the govern ment. They are satisfied that it will result in signal advantages to tbe Irish cause. The Inability of Dillon and O'Brien to inaki tho proposed trip to America is much re gretted. But the plan of presenting the true state of Ireland to the American public by of speeches by leading Irish orators haa not been abandoned. "Who will be selected to So to America has not yet been determined In O'Brien's absence it was not considered de sirable to come to any decision in so important a matter. It is certain that men prominent in the nationalist party will be selected to under- take the work in America which Dillon anc O'Brien had hoped to do. THE IN LONDON. LONDON, September arrest of Irish leaders yesterday fills a conspicuous place in the newspapers throughout the united king dom this morning. Various explanations are surmised to account for Balfour'a sudden stroke. The commonest one on tlie part of the liberal prefes is that its object was to prevent Dillon and O'Brien from going to America to arouse American sympathy and solicit Ameri- can aid. The conservatives, however, scout tbe idea that Balfour could have acted from such a motive. They see in bis present policy a laudable effort to prevent a recurrence oi disorder in Ireland. On the whole one geta the impression that predominant public opin- ion is so far extremely doubtful of the wisdom or expediency of the government's course. A TALK WITH O'SBXEN. Mr. O'Brien, in an interview this morning, said ho could not imagine what infatuation had drawn the government to make the ar- rests. It is easy to-see, he thought, what they are driving at. They are making a supreme effort to crush oat the organization of the ten- ants for concerted action. This they expect to accomplish, he thought, by 'simultaneous clearances on all estates where the plan of campaign has been adopted. The evicted tenants they calculate on their having help- less at their But, such a policy lie O'Biien was asked. he replied. "It is, in my opinion, a piece of inconceivable felony. Ent it seems to me that this is what the government proposed to attempt." "It is held by the correspondent said, "that the main purpose of Balfour in making tho arrests at this moment was to pro- vent Dillon and you from making tlio contem- plated trip to America." "That does seem a probable theory to replied Mr. O'Brien "but if it is the true one, a more absurd calculation was never made, even by tho present chief secretary for Ireland. Far from preventing our appeal to America, ie has made it for us in tho most striking and repressive way. The story of these arrest? will ring throughout America like a trumpet note, compared with which our voices would have been leeble and ineffective. All Irish- Americans know that Tipperary is the key to the fight for Ireland. They will take care to rostrate the dastardly calculation of the gov- ernment." "What do you the correspondent asked, "will be the ultimate effect of the gov- irnment's present course on the cause you rep- "It is altogether Mr. O'Brien without hesitation. "It will close up he ranks of our followers, revive drooping courage and banish every shadow of dissen- ion. The combination in Tipperary is auso- utely impregnable and cannot be COMMENTS OF THE FHEEMAN'S JOURNAL. DUBLIN, September Freeman's Tournal in Its leading aiticle this morning, says: If tho government's object was to stop the visit fDilion and O'Brien to America, the an are shameful confession of weakness and discom- ture, Further on Balfour's policy is characterized ,s "a piece of which will give to he plan of campaign a mcsfc invigorating and xhilaratlng stimulus. The independent coii- ervative Dublin Express, in an article com- mending the government's cause, says: It is an unperative necessity to secure relief rora the tyranny now exercised by tenants. "Warrants were issued against Mesrrs. Dillon nd O'Brien, but only summonsesagainst the thera. Mr. Dillon, in an interview dwelt upon his fact as proving that tho intention was to ronstrate the American tour of himself and Sir CuArlcs Russell, referring to tie same matter in a speech at Darlington, said the arrests might have incited the people o violence bat happily they had not. Messrs. Cullinane and Dalton returned oluntorily to Dublin, on learning that war- rants were issued for their arrest because they nd gone to England. MORE AKHESTS. Joan Cullinane and Michael Dalton, mem- ers of the national league, have been arrested. T. D. Sullivan'will probably make a tour of jnerica.

ALBANY, Ga, September The sad results' of a moment of passion, or per- haps of the drink demon's control, is demon- strated in tho case of C. H. Edwards, tua murderer of Marshal .Lewis Barbonr, at New- ton. After the war had ended this young man, coming from a good old-fashioned Baker county family, started his struggle with the world. Without means and with the determination to succeed, he let no obstacles deter him. He determined to follow tho -plow, as his fathers had done before him. He commenced with one ox, and struggled man- Jully alone- Success slowly crowned hi9 efforts. The other day he imbihed too freely, and became riotous upon the streets of New- ton. It resulted in his slaying the officer who attempted to arrest him, and m being himself wounded. Now he is occupying a call in the jail at Albany and haunted by voices which his half-demented mind conceives to be tho tones of como to wreak geance unon him for bia mad deed. His prop- erty, which in the slow course of years he had with so great a struggle accumulated, has beon all suddenly swept away, being deeded, lie says, to the lawyers to defend Mm in the courts. He leaves ten children penniless, as his family had grown in proportion to his other posses- sions. Threo mules, two horses and a 250-acra- improved farm -are what he turns over to tho attorneys to take his case. THEY JLEFT THEIR CASES. A Bow Between Union and Non-Union Printers in Man mouth, MONMOUTH, 111., September union, printers on The Daily Journal, of this city, struck last Tuesday. The force waa abouC evenly divided between the union and non- union men. The foreman, who was a recent acquisition to the force, discharged a non-union, man to make room for one who belonged to the union. The proprietor would not allow this, whereupon the union men quit work, forcing the non-nnion men to go" out also. Tuesday night the union men received in- formation that Linn, one of the non-union. men, was going to work the next day. They immediately visited him and threatenad to kill him unless ne left town immediately. Ha was last seen being escorted to the depot. Ifc is feared by that Linn has met with foul play. Lebnancher, another non-nnion man, went to work on "Wednesday. When he left the office the union men, who were lying in wait, made for him with clubs and brickbats, and would have probably seriously injured hipi buC Tor the intervention of some outsiders. Tlio iffair caused much excitement, and alleged leaders of the strikers have beon indicted by the grand jury for conspiracy and intimida- tion. Five are now in jail, and quiet has been restored. The Printers to Go Oat. S. C..
