WILD JENES. THE H0U3E OF REPRESENTATIVES AT WA8H-INBTON 11 A TORMOiL Sp**ak^r Reed’s Ruling Cause Uprearing Dissatisfaction on the Democratic Side-The Republicans J ii bi I a ut-Senate Doings* Washington, Jan. 30.—The galleries of the house were crowded to their utmost capacity long before noon to day by spectators anticipating a resumption of the contest of yesterday. Nor were they disappointed, for as the clerk read the journal in regular manner, omitting ♦he detailed vote by yeas and nays on the question of the consideration of a contested election case, Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky, arose and demanded the reading of the full vote. After moment’s hesitation Speaker Reed directed this to be done. This having been completed, Mr. Breckenridge demanded the reading of the names of those not voting, and the speaker ordered this to be done also. Then Mr. Springer, of Illinois, demanded the reading in full of the statement by Speaker Reed, giving the grounds for his ruling yesterday, and the clerk proceeded to read accordingly The reading of the journal V^vingbeen completed, Mr. McKinley, of Ohio, moved that the Journal bo approved and upon that motion demanded the previous question. Mr. Blanchard, of Louisiana, immediately arose to a question of personal privilege relating to the journal, but the speaker declined to recognize him on the ground that a demand for the previous question was pending. Mr. Springer, of Illinois, moved an adjournment *nd demanded the yeas and nays. While the vote was being taken on ordering them, Mr. Springer stat- d that his object was to allow the committee on rules to prepare a set of rules One hundred and twenty four members arose to demand the yeas and nays The spanker declared this to be a sufficient number and directed the clerk to call the roil. Mr. Bland, of Missouri, moved to reconsider the vote by which the yeas and nays were ordered but the speaker declined to recognize him, whereupon Mr. Bland shouted amid so much confusion that his words were not fully audible to many persons: “You are the meanest tyrant that ever presided over a legislative body and I denounce  The remainder of tho sentenae was drowned in a wave of cheers on the democratic side. The roll was then called. The motion was defeated, yeas 142, nays 160. It then recurred on the demand for the previous question on the approval of the j mrnal and the yeas and nays having been ordered, the order “Don’t vote ' was passed around on the democratic side of tho chamber and studiously obeyed. Before the vote was announced the speaker directed the clerk to record the following names of members as present and not voting: Messrs. Breckinridge, of Arkansas; Carlisle, Clements, Crairae, Crisp, Culberson, of Texas; Dockery, Knloe, Goodnight, Hemphill. Hooker, Kilgore, Lane. McCreary, .VI Millan, M mtgomery, Moore, of Texas; Ohs and Outbwaite. The speaker then announced the vote to stand, yeas IOO, nays I; and added “Which in addition to the gentleman present constitute a quorum and the previous question is ordered.*’ This brought forth a storm of applause from tho republican aide Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, wished to appeal from the decision, but the speaker sided with the point of order raised by Mr. McKinley, that an appeal was not in order, as another appeal was pending. Mr. Springer, of Illinois, made a point of order that no quorum had voted, and that if the speaker so decided, he would take an appeal. The speaker said the chair declined to entertain the appeal of tho gentleman from Illinois, which brought out, applause on the republican side and hisses fnom the democrats. Then amid wild cheering on the democratic side Mr. Breckenridge, of Kentucky, rushed down the aisle and. standing in front of the speaker, exclaimed:    ‘    From that we appeal. There is no appeal pending There was an appeal yesterday, but it is a different appeal Because the speaker is assuming that the house will sustain his decision of yesterday and so it therefore does not come within the rule as stated by the gentleman from Ohio, (McKinley) and the gag law which that gentleman with the help of the speaker, has applied to-day is usurpary, revolutionary aud corrupt.’* Cheer after cheer arose from the democratic side, mingled with hisses from the republicans. until the houso resembled a perfect bedlam. In the midst of the tumult the speaker stated the question to be on the motion to approve the journal, and the yeas and rays having been ordered he directed the clerk to call the roll. Owing to the confusion many democratic members did not understand the question as put by the chair and another scene of excitement ensued dozens of members arising and demanding to know what they were to vote upon. The speaker attempted in vain to restore order, though one democrat was heard to shout above tho tumult that the house was as much in order as the speaker. A lull occurred, however, when Mr, Carlisle arose and sud he hoped that the roll call would bo suspended until or der was restored, as several members did not understand the question. The speaker then re stated the question and the vote resulted, yeas, 162; nays, I. The speaker declared the motion carried, and directed the cleek to enter on the journal the names of members present and not voting. After another storm occasioned bv Mr. Springer’s persistent efforts (which in the end proved successful) to address the chair, the house became quiet and the door was accorded to Mr Kinley, who spoke upon the appeal takea yesterday, and supported the speaker's decision The speaker had a right, he contended, to proceed to note that thirty or thirty-five members who had refused to vote on roll call were present in their seats. All that was involved in the appeal was simply a question of fact. Did any gentleman whose name was disclosed by the count rise in his place and declare he was not present ? Not one. Under general parliamentary law the speaker had a right to count the members and if no quorum, to stop all business. The principle was distinctly established that the presiding officer might count, and it was his duty to count the number of members who might be present to constitute a quorum. The gentleman from Kentucky [Carlisle] had declared under the speaker’s decision one representative could pass a bill with one hundred and sixty-seven members sitting in their seats in silence. So he could, and so he ought to, if one hundred and sixty seven members sat in silence and re fused to vote, where their votes would defeat the proposition, a vote of a sin gle member ought to pass the bill. When the gentlemen sit in their seats and refuse to perform public duty they •re repudiating a great public trust. Mr Carlisle, as speaker, had repeatedly signed bills ana resolutions which never received a constitutional majority. He had done it over    and over by himself, showed that less than a ma- j nity of the house had voted. The action of the democrats yesterday had help either black or white, common decency requires you should hold your peace.” He could not, he said, support Mr. Hampton spoke briefly. While in full accord with the proposed measure he didn’t think the remedy met the requirements of the case. After an executive session the senate adjourned.__ essEBsL Washington news Pre j *ci« A Ship Lummi Across th* Michigan Foalneala. Washington, Jan. 30 —About a year ago resolutions were adopted by the state legislatures of Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan asking the national government to survey a ship canal through the upper peninsula of Michigan from Little Bay de N: que in Lake Michigan to a point on Lake Superior near Bay Au Main. It would shorten the voyage to Lake Superior points ab 'ut 500 miles. W. H. Morrell, of New York, a large land-owner in Michigan and Wisconsin, has prepared a bill appropriating 150 OOO for the survey which will be introduced in both the house and senate this week. PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATIONS. The president to day sent to the senate the following nominations: William H. aft, cf Ohio, to be solicitor general; Robert Adams, Jr., of Pennsylvania, now accredited envoy extraordinary and mininister plenipotentiary to the empire of Brazil to be the same to the United Hates of Brazil.

Storey spoke of the great value of the security of the road would offer to the government under the terms of the bill in addition to the present security. WILL MOVE THEIR DIVISION. Mason City, Jan. 30 —After January 31 the Iowa Central wiil move their division from Lyle, Minnesota, to Mason City. The line from Lyle to Manly Junction will be abandoned by the Iowa Central. This move will be hailed with delight by the citizens of Mason City and the employes of the road. BROKE THE BELORD. never been dreamed of by the fathers of, the emigration bill, it did not reach the the constitution. They never dreamed of sullen silence as a statesmanlike way of destroying a quorum. He was not saying the democrats were doing differently from what the republican party had done for years. But no majority ever carried on filibustering that it was not afterward ashamed of the whole proceeding. This mode of stopping legislation had never been thongat of by the framers of the constitution. If the gentlemen on the other side were going to have a revolution let them have it in the proper way and get out of the house [Applause on the republican side.] They had no business to turn upon the republicans who were here and ready to do business and call them revolutionists. The gentlemen on the other side wanted to perpetuate a friction which declared although the members were present in their seats, they should be held to be constructively absent It was time to stop this legal fiction. Let the members be honest. Let them defeat the bill in a constitutional way, by debate, by amendment, by yea and nay vote, expressive of their judgment. This controversy was to determine whether the majority should rule or govern, or be subject to the tyranny of the minority. The position of the gentlemen on the other side meant they would either ruin or rule, though they were in the minority. The republicans insisted, while they were in the majority that the other side should do neither. ] Applause on the republican side]. We settled one question a great deal of cost that the minority could not run this country—[applause] and we intend to settle if we can, in the broad light of public opinion, and in the presence of 60,000,000 people whether the constitutional majority of this house shall do the business of the house. [Applause]. Mr. Turner, of Georgia, believed if the wild view presented here was engrafted on the practice of the house it would inaugurate a reign of anarchy and profligacy unprecedented in the annals of the country. He controverted the power of the speaker to lave the names entered upon the journal. Mr Butterwort^ of Ohio, said the question went to the power of the maturity to rule in this country. This was a government of the people. It was a government ol the majority The majority must exercise ihat authority in legislation and government which was in keeping with the furtherance of the provisiou of the constitution. It had been argued it was for a member to answer to nimself and bis constituents alone whether he would vote and discharge his duty, here or not. He utterly denied tee soundness of that proposition. That would have done when it was held the members were ambassadors from the states; it would not do in January, 1890 tie was not here to legislate simply for himself and his constituents. He was here to legislate for the whole country, and the whole country had a right to exact of him that he be in his place and perform his duty. The speaker had not only discharged the duty which devolved upon him in this matter but one which he could not avoid under his oath of office if he would. A member on the democratic side suggested there was no rule for what the republicans were attempting to do “Yes, we have a rule,’* Bu»terworth retorted, “and you have discovered it” Butterwort concluded:    “The right of the minority, which the fathers provided for, was a right to amend, or to do whatsoever they wished to perfect legislation. But the sovereign will of the people is represented in the majority; and until ihat right be overthrown by revolution or os her wise, the decision of the speaker must be upheld as vindicating the rights of all the people of this country.” Mr. McKinley moved to lay on the table the appeal from the speaker’s decision. Shouts of disapproval were heard on the democratic side, but McKinley per sisted and Springer moved to adjourn. On a rising vote the result was announced, ayes, 124; nays, 149. Springer demanded the nays and yeas, with the remit of yea, 145; nays, 161. So the house refused to adjourn and the question recurred on the motion to lay the appeal on the table, on which question the yeas and nays were demanded from the democratic side. The clerk proceeded with the call, no democrats responding, most of them leaving their seats and retiring to the cloak rooms. The speaker however followed the roll call and noted down the names of the democrats pres-sent and not voting. The non-voting members were again called but still no democrats responded When the vote was completed the speaker took the re turn from the tally clerk and ordered the clerk to record the names of the twenty six democrats present and declining to vote. He then announced the vote 162 yeas and none in the negative and declared the motion to lay the appeal on the table carried. Shouts of “no quorum” and exclamations of indignation arose from the democratic side; but in the midst of the tumult and uproar the speaker recog-n zed Mr. McKinley for a motion to adjourn; put it and declared it carried. Before he left the chair [amid shouts of “shame” from the excited democrats] he paused long enough to give Springer a chance to say he had demanded the yeas and nays. The speaker said he had heard no request for the yeas and nays, but would recognize the demand. And so Springer had the poor satisfaction of having the yeas and nays called, with the result of yeas 193, nays 57. The house then adjourned until to morrow, the republicans jubilant at their success and the democrats correspondingly depressed. heard arguments by Story, attorney for sane asylum.

Chicago, Jan. 30.—The Illinois Central beat the record to day by two serious accidents to suburban trains within two hours. The first collision occurred about six o’clock this morning between trains on the Illinois Central and the Baltimore and Ohio. The trains were going in opposite directions and the col lision was caused by a misplaced switch The passengers were thrown in all directions, some of them receiving serious shocks, and the locomotives and cars were badly damaged. The second accident occurred between two trains at the foot of Washington street. They collided and tore away the platform and splintered it into matchwood. Many were badly bruised and cut by breaking glass_ A FRIESr BLO VVN UP. THE SENATE. Van** Speake on th* Near* Problem Washington, Jan. SO.—The house bill as to the duty on silk ribbons was passed without division; also the senate bill in structing the superintendent of census to gather information about mortgages on homes and farms. Mr. Vance then addressed the senate on the negro emigration bill. Mr. Vance sarcastically characterized Mr. Ingalls* recent speech as oratorical pyrotechnics, concealing its "paucity of ideas. He acknowledged the millenium had not yet dawned on the south, and that the lane of reconstruction was not yet the land of perfect righteousness. He referred to the northern jerrymandering of the blocks of five, the ejection of colored children from white schools, etc., and hoped in time some accomplished black man might be sent to represent the country In some other land besides Hayti and Liberia. Referring to Mr. Ingalls’ re mark that the south was standing on volcano, he said the south needed no help. It could wage war without assist •nee from anybody and could easily manage and overcome the uprising o seven millions of negroes. Then there would come a solution of the negro problem which would stay solved. Given a high-spirited, cultivated, dominant race occupying a free state, and with that race, a race of manumitted slaves, of recently barbaric origin, how should the two be nude to dwell together in peace and fraternity? It is a fundamental principle of American law that the ma jority shall rule (within limits), but it is the principle of natural law that the stronger must rule and the weaker must yield. The negro is not incapable civilization, but ie incapable of keeping up with the civilisation of the white race. His (V anoe’s) solution of the problem was simply “hands^ off.

A Sad Siqael to til* Brooks-Murphy Scandal. Lenox, la., Jan. 30.—On Monday of this week, Mrs. “Judge” Murphy of this place, was sent to the Mt. Pleasant in- cies in consequence of trouble growing out of the Brooks-Murphy scandal. A rehearsal of this notorious case will be of interest to readers now that one of the actors is probably doomed to end her life in a mad-house. About a year ago last December Miss Ada Murphy, a bright young girl—a blonde of quite prepossessing appearance, was engaged in the banking nouse of L. 8. Brooks of this city, as assistant cashier. When the girl entered the employ of Mr. Brooks she was quite shabbily attired for the position she was to occupy, so Mr. Brooks advanced money quite liberally so that Miss Ada could dress in a becoming manner for her new position. This seemed to arouse the suspicion of Mrs. Brooks, who proceeded to the bank one day and expelled the fair Ada, at the same time accusing her of improper conduct. After this episode Mr. Brooks gave large sums of money and other valuables to the girl, either because ne was infatuated with her or because he thought she was mistreated by Mrs. Brooks, or because the parents of Miss Murphy took advantage of the situation to fleece the old man, or all three considerations combined. However this may have been, the bank succumbed under the strain and Brooks’ creditors at tacked part of the property belonging to Miss Murphy, that was purchased with the Brooks money and the case went against the Murphys. I think that the cause of Mrs. Murphy’s insanity is remorse at sd vising her daughter Ada to accept Brooks’s bounty and thus compromise her character in the community. I think it is due the girl, however, to say that I do not think she is guilty of and criminal impropriety. A DASTARDLY ATTACK Iowa Supremo Coart Special to Th* Havx-Bti.

Henry Penrod, of Cincinnati, Sate Up Big “String*” With On* Hand. Cincinnati, Jan. 30.—A one-armed primer is as much of a curiousity as the armless man who dexterously handles a knife and fork with his toes. There came to Cincinnati two days ago such a wonder, and he is now working as a “sub” in the Enquirer office His name is Henry Penrod, he is twenty-seven years old, and hails from Washington, where he learned the trade on the Re publican. Penrod, six years ago, went on a thip out weet, and while gone lost his left arm in a railroad accident. Only a short stump, extending but a few inches from the shoulder, remains Nothing disheartened by a misfortune that would have rendered most men helpless. Penrod set to work to manage the intricacies of his craft with one hand, and he succeeded so well that he now sets as biga “string” as the best printer, and he justifies his own matter and does it wejl. In “setting” type, Penrod places the “stick” on the case in front of him, and then nimbly shoots the tyye into place, working very rapidly and with as apparent ease as a man with two hands. Penrod has worked as a “sub” on all the great newspapers of the country, and makes a competent livelihood. He is the only one-armed printer capable of earning a full day’s wages at the case.

The Clearing House association to-day acted on the Sixth Na tional and dropped it from the associe tion. The bank examiner states that all depositors will certainly be paid in full The Equitable bank has also been mentioned in connection with these two institutions, but its president says it is not affected. Wall street this afternoon looks upon the attempt to dispose of the $600,000 in bonds owned by the Sixth National bank as simply a case of highway robbery. It seems, said President Teppin, of the Gallatin National back and a member of the clearing house committee, that after Leland had sold his interest in the Sixth National bank, the directors were requested to resign, which thev did. Now the directors, without being legally organized. elected P J Classen president On assuming the rffice Classen made three loans of $‘*0,000 each, secured by the stock of the Lenox Hill bank (very poor security) and then went d^wn to the safe deposit vaults of the National Park bank and abstracted first-class railroad bonds to the par value of $622,000 These bonds he turned over to George H. Pell, broker, who attempted to dispose of them Cashier Colsen, learn.Dg of Classen's action, notified the clearing house and the bank examiner. The latter, after an investigation, closed the bauk and called on Classen for a return of ’he $622 OOO in sureties. The examiner, by prompt action, succeeded in getting back •201,000 of the bonds. In lieu of, or on account of the rest of the abstracted bonds, Classen handed the bank examiner checks for pf # OOO These checks fell short of thu Clark et value of the abstracted securities $140 -00O. None of the checks, however, have been paid and they are being protected. The comptroller of the currency wiU appoint a receiver and all the facts in the case were laid before the United State? district attorney, who this afternoon issued warrants for the arrest of President Classen and Broker Pell for their connection with the affair. C'iassen, the new president of the Sixth National bank, is a broker at 45 Broadway, and Wallack, who is president of the Lenox Hill bank, has his office in the sam* building. Wallack is also a partner of Pell & Wallack, who appear to have negotiated the sale of the assets of the Sixth National. The methods used are identical with those used by Henry 8 Ives in his dealings with the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton railroad. In an interview this evening regarding the matter, Bank Examiner Hepburn was very strong in his remarks concern ing the manner in which the steal was concocted. He said it was the course is left for me? Way, only this; I must wait for the vast concourse of people to assemble, and then co before them and explain the reason of your non-appearance. I shall have to make a clear statement of the case, and say that you have refused to act because there were some slight discrepancies and irregularities in £he rehearsal. The public are, you kp w. quite unreasonable when thtiT diversion is checked and it is likely that they will be indignant at the disappointment, failing to see the reason as clearly as vou may have done. Now, consider for a moment. Under these circumstances will it not be more magnanimous in you to overlook the shortcomings and go on with the rehearsal. “He paused for a moment anti said: ‘I will not go back to the rehearsal I am too much excited, and my presence on the stage now will only make matters worse; but if ytu wiil see thai details are attended to. I will act to-night.’ “I promised to do so. and we parted I was only too glad to get rid of him on those terms, in his then intemperate state of mind. I went back to the stage and dismissed the rehearsal, cautioning the actors to do what they could to render the night’s performance creditable. I now began to hunt up the delinquent and frightened property man, lake Search—an appropriate name for a fellow who needed so much looking after—and discovered him hiding under a pile of old scenery. Is he gone? said Search ‘Yes.’ I answered, but he will return to-night; so see that your properties are in good condition, or he will be the death of you.’ “The night came ant matters pro pressed favorably until the council scene. One of the characters here, being overcome with nervousness, reversed his questions to Metamora, giving the wrong lines, and of course receiving an absurd answer. The audience, reccg nizing the confusion of the dia’ogu*. began to laugh, and of course this made maters woree.

In Irs anger and excitement the blade failed to stick in the stage and bounded into the orchestra, the handle hitting the double bass player on the top of the head, which was as innocent of hair as a bil-liad bail, so as the curtain came down the old fellow as Slumping about and rubbing his bald pate to the delight of the audience. “I realized now that the storm had burst in earnest, and that a total wreck would soon follow. Knowing that I could not avert the catastrophe, aud having no desire to face the tragedian’s wrath, like a politic but disloyal captain I deserted the ship and went in front to see it go down Byron says of a battle, ‘Oh, what a sight to him who h^s no fr eud or br thcr there!’ to which Prentice adds, ‘and 13 not there himself,’ The latter was now my case I was not there mf self, and I did not intend to be, so from the secure corner of an upper private box I watched the progress of the most disastrous performance I had ever seen “As the curtain rises on the last act the tribe cf^Metamora should rush through the woods as their leader calls them, but by this time the braves were so frightened teat they had become de moralized, and a3 the foremost rushed through the opening in the woods his loDg how got crosswise between two trees. This not only precipitated the redskin over it, but the entity tribe fol lowed, tumbling head over heels into the middle of the stage.

His pathos was fine, and by his magnificent acting he reduced his audience to attention and enthusiasm. A'l L LEANDER ANDERSON SHOOTS ANNA CARLSON FOR REEUSINS RIM.

For rest was always in a state of intense irri tation during the rehearsal and perform ante of this drama Irregularities that he would have overlooked under ordinary circumstances, were now magnified to an enormous size, so that when he donned the buckskin shirt and stuck the hunting knife of the American savage in his wampum belt, he was ready to scalp any offending actor who dared to cross his path The copper colored liquid with which he stained his cheeks might literally have been called ‘war paint.’ At the rehearsal the poor property man, old Jake Search, got into adreadfu state of nervousness, and everything went wrong. The tragedian naturally held me, as stage manager, responsible for these accidents, particularly as the unlucky Jake would conceal himself be hind set pieces, or mysteriously d isappear through traps as each mishap occurred.

John G. Whittier, who is now eighty two years old, is about the liveliest man of his generation. He is vigorous both in body and mind, and can do as good work as ever. His last poem, “The Cap tain’s Well,” which he wrote for the New York Ledger, in his eighty-second par, is ore of the strongest most beau tifuL and most finished productions that ever r ame frrm his pen. Mr. Whittier, in sending “The Captain's Well'' to the Ledger, wrote to the publishers of that paper that it would probably be the last poem he would ever write; but we hope that in this he was mistaken. The vener able poet did not fix any price upon “The Captain’s Well,” but left the re muneration to Messrs. Robert Bonner’s Sons, and they sent him a check for a thousand dollars, Such unusual liber ality tousled th* old man deeply; especially because (as he characteristically wrote; it enabled him to give more than he had hoped to be able to bestow upon certain charitable enterprises that were near to his heart. It is seldom that so modest, peaceful and useful a life as John G Whittier's is lived upon this earth, and millions of the aged poet’s admirers and friends are gratified to know that there is good promise that his life may be yet spared for jt^ny years.
