that tho adoption of the order would leavo only the slightest possible chance for a hearing on froo coinage or such amend ment as would strike out the objectionable bullion redemption clause It was in the hopes of defeating this scheme of the administration and the Speaker that the twelve republicans boldly revolted In spite of threats and persuasions Members were awsurod that they need not look for recognition frnrri the Speaker if they voted against the party policy Others wore threatened with objections against bills of local Interest In case of revolt The lash was never cracked so loudly before In Con gress Speaker lioed showed the cloven foot of Wall street without disguise both last night and today to the infinite disgust of the Western mombtMs and tho gleeful de light of the gold

given a kindly welcome It was soon discovered however that the In dians wevo Intoxicated and disposed to bo They demanded liquor ot the sur veyors which was of course refused The Indians became
