A lull enabled Mr. Bland to protest against tho non-recognition of Mr. Springer. He was declared out of order by the Speaker. "I am in cried Mr. Bland ex- citedly, amid cheers from his colleagues. Things began to quiet down when Mr. McCreary, of Kentucky, demanded rec- ognition, and proceeded to make order of chaos by explaining how matters stood, Md asking that Mr. Springer be recog- nised. This request the Speaker granted and Mr. Springer stated his grievance. He demanded a correction of tho record, holding that it was the privilege of erery member to see that he was cor- rectly recorded in it. The Speaker sus- tained Mr. Springer and the latter sat down. Mr. McKinley reviewed the proceed- ings of Wednesday, contending that the Speaker, in counting in members who refused to vote, as present, had violated no rule of parliamentary law. A par- liamentary controversy ensued during Mr. McKinley's address, between Mr. McKinley and Mr. 'Carlisle on the Speaker's ruling that it was not neces- sary to have a quorum voting to pass a measure, but simply to have a quorum present. Mr. Turner, of said that if the wild view presented -here was once grafted on the practice of the House, it would inaugurate a reign of anarchy. He accused the Republicans of having changed their views on this question to suit a present emergency. Mr. Butter worth said this decision was a departure from the practice which had been tolerated in the House half a cen- tury and which was sanctified by an- tiquity, if antiquity could sanctify that which was in itself wrong. This ques- tion involved the powir of.the majority to rule in this country and members should determine whether the Constitu- tion con tained in itself the element of suicide. At the close of Mr. Butterworth'a speech, Mr. McKinley moved to lay on the table the appeal from the Speaker's decision. Mr. Springer moved to ad- journ. The motion was defeated. The roll call was proceeded with and the motion to lay the appeal on the table was 102, nays none. When the Speaker announced the re- sult of the vote and declared Mr. Mc- Kinley's motion carried, there were Shouts of "No quorum'' and exclama- tions of indignation on the Democratic side. In the midst of tho tumult and uproar the Speaker recognized Mr. Mc- Kinley for a motion to adjourn, put it and declared it carried: but, before he left the chair (amid shouts of "shame" from the excited he paused long enough to give Mr. Springer a chance to say thai, he had demanded the yeas and nays. The Speaker said he had heard no request for the yeas and nays; but, if the gentleman from Illinois called lor them, the- Speaker would recognize the demand. And so Mr. Springer had the poor satisfaction of having the yeas and nays called with the 194, nays 57. The House then adjourned until to-day. SENATE. Mr. Hale reported back from the Com- mittee on Census a bill appropriating to enable the Superintendent of Census to prepare statistics of farm owners, renters, mortgages, interests, rents, etc. After some discussion the bill was passed. The "silk ribbon" bill was taken up and after being- slightly amended was passed. A resolution was agreed to, instruct- ing the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds to inquire as to the neces- sity for an addition to the White House, a new Government Printing Office, etc. Mr. Vance then took the floor and ad- dressed the Senate on the Negro Emi- gration bill. Mr. Vance's speech took a humorous turn and was frequently ap- plauded. Mr. Hampton addressed the Senate at some length. He denied the state- ment of the Senator from Kansas (Mr. Ingalls) that he (Hampton) was in favor of extermination of the negro. H: favoced no such horrible policy. He did not think tho methods of Mr. Ingalls in dealing with great public questions were becoming. At the conclusion of Mr Hampton's speech the bill went over without action, and the Senate after a brief executive session adjourned unti Monday. _______________ Fatal Explosion. OSWEGO, N. Y., Jan.

Mr. of TraBMtettons WUek. Strongly of Mftd Staymer, the lUUlromd NEW YORK, Jan. Lenox Hill bunk suspended payment yesterday. It controlled by tho same parties who ast week bought the control of the Sixth National Bank of this city, which had already been closed by the bank ex- aminer. The knowledge of the relation- ship of the two institutions caused a run on the Lenox which it was unable to meet. The president made an attempt iC obtain funds in Wall street to con- inue payments, but was unsuccessful. The Clearing House Association took action regarding the Sixth National and decided to drop it from the association. There are all kinds of rumors in regard to the Sixth National, one being that its new officers, who have only been in charge a few days, sold out its securities as soon as they obtained possession. Its president, P. J. Classen, is >een connected with mining schemes in Leadville a number of years ago. De- will be paid in full. The Equi- ;able bank has also been mentioned in connection with the other two institu- tions. Its president makes the follow ing statement: of the Siith National have a minority interest in the Equitable, only, and the bank is not affected." Wall street looks upon the attempt to dispose of the in bonds owned by the Sixth National Bank as simply a case of highway robbery. It seems that president Classen, after abstracting the sonds from the safe deposit vault turned them over to George H. Pell, a broker of unsavory reputation, who attempted to dispose of them on the street, repre- senting them to be the property of his wife. Mr. Colsen, the cashier of the bank learning of the action of Classen, notified the clearing house and the bank xaminer. The latter began an investi- gation and soon learned enough to cause lim to close the bank and call on Clas- sen for the return of the in securities The examiner, by his prompt action, succeeded in getting back 000 of the bonds. In lieu of. or on ac- count of the rest of the abstracted bonds, Classen handed the bank examiner checks for These checks fell short of the market value of the ab- stracted securities None of the checks, however, have been paid, and they are being protested. The Comp- troller of the Currency will appoint a receiver. The president of the Lenox Hill is Qharles E. Wallack, a son of the la Lester Wallack. There was cash on hand when the bank opened Thurs- day morning. By great effort more was procured. The entire had been paid out lo depositors by noon and the cashier closed the doors. The financial condition of the bank is as fol- lows: Deposits, capital paid in, loans and discounts, amount due other banks, The directors are liable for twice the amount of thei? shares. P. H. DeTappan, president of the Galla- tfh National Bank, and a member of the clearing house committee, says the pro- ceeds of the sale of stocks and securi- ties belonging to the Sixth National Bank were used to pay the certified checks which had been given to Mr. Leland. the former president, for his 1.035 shares of stock. These checks were drawn upon several banks, includ- ing the Lenox Hill and Equitable. DeTappan denounced the transaction as "another Ives-Staynercase." He'ex- plained that tbe puAhasers were given possession of the bank on payment of certified chocks, and then sold the se- curities they found in the vaults and deposited the proceeds in the clearinz house to meet the certified checks. Mr. DeTappan added that counsel for Leland has announced that any deficit in the assets will be paid by Leland in full. DeTappan farther stated that the price paid to Leland for his stock was excessive. George H- Pell was arrested at his home last evening and taken to Ludlow Street jail, where he was locked up. Thus far the missing bonds, par value 6431.000. market value S433.4GO. are still missing. There are Joans of 5150.000 for which the security on hand is very du bious.' There are aLso SS-S.OOO of pro- tested notes on broker PelL who is said to have schemed the whole transaction. The other assets seem to-be all right.

The chair paid no attention to what he said except to answer tliat the exceptions and objections would be passed upon by tbe Senate' at the proper time. At the counsel for the contestor rested their case, so Tar as'the reading of depositions was concerned. An attempt was made to post- pone the hearing, bat the chaw would not enter- tain a motion from ttue Republican side of the Senate. Judgs NasS offered a motion to dis- miss the entire the contestor had submitted it without, offering evidence which was beard by the Senate. The chair overruled the motion and an oxoeption was noted.. The chair announced that before the presentation ot oral testimony the contestee must present his depositions. Judge Nash protested against this. Judge Nash called 'WV K. Codtes, deputy clerk of Cuyahoga County, but this was not allowed, it being held that the oral evidence must all be presented to the Committee on Privileges and Elections. The attorneys for Mr Lampoon re- fused to otter their deposition testimony first and tfie Senate voted to close that part of the testimony. During a short recess the Commit- tee on Privileges and Elections heard the testi- mony of Colonel W. A. Taylor. The contestee refused to offer testimony lo the committee. This testimony-was read to the Senate. Mr. Powell opened the arguments. Judge Nosh pro- tested against the whole procedure and re- fused to make any argument, on the ground that his client had been given no hearing. Mr. Converse then said a few words and the Senate By a vote of 13 to 16 declared Mr. Marquis elected Lieutenant Governor. following bills were passed: Amending Section 581, .Revised Statutes, so as to legalize exammatisn of low students in law schools by a committee of the Supreme Court; Appropriating W1.7S7 46 to pay for advertising the constitutional amendments, supplement- ary to Section to allow colleges and insti- tutions of learning to change their name and enlarge their scope: Appropriating WOO for benefit of widow of the late member from Defiance; appropriating S46.30for the support of the common schools} amending Section 3 of the act establishing the Soldiers'Home Sandfsky, so as to provide that the ohairmett of county relieJ committees shall furnish transportation to such indigent soldiers as are entitled to admission to the Home; to exempt from taxation property held by O.

BEFUSRO RECOGNITION. for Mormon Into Trouble by Ptottiusr AfaliMt DvtoeUve AUo SALT LAKE Cirr, Utah, Jan. si. Jesse Barton, who has been appearing as counsel for members of the People's party (Mormons) whose names were ;hallenged as not being entitled to reg- ister as voters in the coming election, was yesterday refused recognition as an attorney by Register McCall, who ex- plained that his refusal was in view of the "shameful just made of Barton's methods. The "exposure" was the publication of the alleged inside history of Mormon campaign methods, as derived from _a detective who claims to have been em- ployed by the Mormons to compromise leading Liberals (anti-Mormons) by get- ting them into gambling hells that were to be raided. Barton, it is alleged, was implicated in the plot.

Settlers will have a fair supply of fuel and feed, and when expended there is more for them there. The county has a arge quantity of coal, and the relief or- ganizations have plenty to supply Dres- nt needs, and more is being received daily. Eastern people who have tele- raphed asking about the safety of riends may content themselves with knowing that settlers in Beadle County will not go cold or hungry, notwith- standing the reports sent out that peo- ple were sitting in their homes on Dairies going mad from hunger." CHICAGO, Jan. Governor Mellette, of South Dakota, and F. H. Smith, a member of the lower house of the Leg- slature, have arrived in this city. Chey are members of the special com- mittee appointed to arrange for getting iced wheat for the farmers in the drought-stricken district. "When asked ibout the stories of destitution and suf- fering in South Dakota, Governor Mel- ette said: "There is poverty in South Dakota, )Ut no destitution, and there will be none as long as any of us have anything to give. I venture to say that there is not a family positively in need of food or fuel in the whole of the South Da- cota district which had suffered by drought. They are not destitute, but are without money to bay seed for the next year's planting. A good crop next year will get all the Dakota farmers on ;heir feet again and very soon there will >e artesian wells enough to do away with. the danger of drought."
