introduced in the house yes terday a resolution amending Bale 15 by adding the following clmine Whenever on a vote of yeas and nays a quorum fails to appear on the record made under clttuwe three of this rule there shall be a call of tho house nnd the order for the yeaH and nays on tho pending question shall at the same time be operative The clerk shall call the roll and each mem ber as he HUHwors to his name voluntar ily appears or is brought before the house shall vote on the pending question If those voting on tha question and those who are present and fail Co vote shall to gether make a majority of the house the speaker shall declare that n quorum is constituted and the pending question shall be decided the majority ot those voting shall appear The resolution was referred to the committee oa rales What a Call Moans Now The piut week has shown what a call of the house amounts to as now used even if it had not been frequently shown for years But tho new Billy Mason tactics of being present at the call and absent at the vote makes its utter useiessness much plainer so far us obtaining a vote on any question is concerned if the party in power does not have a quorum present for any reason After the call has been made and a quorum of members shown to be in the city antl able to attend the ses all the filibuster have to do is to witfk out of the chamber and presto busi ness is tit a standstill In fact as it now stands the call is Himple waste of time might as well be abolished Hlsaeg for Tardy The proceedings yesterday wera decid edly interesting and a feature of them were the hisses greeted Millken of Maine ami Mudd of Maryland when they tardily appeared at a time when they were just needed to make a quorum Then Cheadle of Indiana went out and it took the united efforts of half a dozen of his Republican friends to get him back again He finally went back to inake a quorum and the Hepublicans were at last success ful but only because it was necessary for OFerrall Democrat to remain ia the hall to watch his partys interests All the actors in yesterdays evens were fairly good natured and calm Even OFerrall took his detent like a philoso pher and smiled when the final vote was taken that told him that the end of the battle had coma Prospects fur the Future Many Democratic members are adyo cutlng the policy of preventing the pass sago of the tariff bill by the same means employed to postpone the election cases The Republicans have a bare quorum of one anil a number of them are so tmx lous to get uviiy from Washington City that it seems almost impossible that they bo kept here except by forco The managers do not wish to resort to arrests but say they aro ruuly to do so if any bheir members desert their colors now It is probable hotvevKr that the Democrats will determine thattliey would not be justified iu filibustering against the tariff 3itl n measure in the preparation oJ which they have participated and that they will be content by registering their votes against it SUGAR INJTHE GOURD Tho Points of DiHuiirijeniciit ori tile Tariff Kiclc WASHINGTON CITV Sept con lerrees on the tariff bill did not meet yes ierday but thu Republican conferrees lold two protracted conferences The first continued through the moruiug and resulted in nothing Thi differences be tween the conferrees on the part of the louse and the senate

Seimtorti Agrree to a Protest A now complication arose later in the day The senators Erorn he northwestern states to tho number of ten met and agreed to a protest ugninst the proposition to put a duty on binding twine for the purpose of effecting a compromise with the house on sugar The statements ot the senators present at this conference as to the etect of it aro slisjhtly conflicting Some of

bill to go through the senate while the objectionable feature remained in it Others say tliat the ten senators merely entered tin emphatic protest against the proposition Pikes Fouk or Bust The Republican couferrees weieinseii sion at a late hour lat night with the avowed determination of remaining to gether until sonio determination was reached The conference report will not be presented to

this tree its quick growth and the unusually fine and salable fruit nuts produced make it very desirable for profitable planting Its wood can be used wherever the other or common American chestnut can

bushel we have known these to be eagerly sought for at and t3 per bushel In point of quality however it is very inferior to the nuts gathered in the woods being but little better in our esteem than a
