Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia ATLANTA, OA., TUESDAY SEPTEMBER- 23, 1890 DEFEATED AGAIN, 27IE.REJPPBJDZC.ljrS FA.ZI, XO GEX .d QVOXV3T, AND ANOTHER DAY GOES BY THEM. 3Hr. Eccd JtepuliHcnn Caucus Coea Sonic. Given Ono More "WASHINGTON, September 22. [Special.] Tho republicans again failed to get a quorum today, and again withdrew from, the field by adjourn'ng tho house shortly after 1 o'clock. Eeed counted 1G-1 members present on the lirst roll call, but that number failed to materialize on the second, and the big man gave it up. He, however, immediately called a caucus, and attempted to got his men to stick together until a quorum could be secured. The rank and file, or, do not like tho proceedings, and protected vigorously at tho delay to other legislation by this fight. Billy Mason led the opposition to Feed. Ko secured tho floor and made a ringing speech in opposition to con- tinuing the fight. 1-itK SENSATION1 HE CHEATED. He created somewhat a sensation bv say ing it, "Considering the fact that the nogro was elected aiijhovr, I think we have done enough for him. I think this thing ought to stop, ai.d we should transact some business." No in the caucus contended with him in PEICE FIVE CENTS. Grady A. H. -Williams and L. B. Alexander, succeeding Messrs. Skinner, McCIammy, Broweraud Rowland respectively This makes fourteen in all -who have been nominated on tho democratic ticket and whose elections are probable. However, there lina. tis on that the negro was not elected. It wn-j the fact that he opposed Reeti that cteatoJ the sensation. The republicans, like the democrats, know that the negro I-angston. was not elected, but they think it necessary to Boat him to keep the negroes in the republican ranks, and then it gives them one more ma- jority in the house. The reason, however, Read decs not want to give up the fight is becai; a by 30 doing ic will be for him a square and will materially injure his chances Jor tlio presidential nomination in 1392. GIVEX ONE DAY STOKE. Aftor tho caucus tins afternoon, which was verj stormy, Reed said he would have a quorum here tomorrow, and would then unseat Mr. "Venablo. In the caucus he prop isod if he did not whip tho tomorrow to give it up. "Without this promise he never could have secured the prom fees of the republicans are already here, to remain over tomon ow. As it ia, many of them are decidedly discontented, aud quite a croud, headed by and Payson, say they leave "Washington tomoirow night, to en tor the campaigns in their respective states. Thus, if Eeed fails to got a quorum tomorrow, he will be lost. The house will proceed on other business, and continue until adjournment. If Mr. Venable is unseated, this session, it will be tomorrow. JUDGE CRISP Judge Crisp has been quite unwell for two days, rtnd could not go to the house today, consequently Mr. O'Ferrall was the only dem- ocrat on guard. However, tomorrow tho Georg-an hopes to be able to attend, and drive hack the republicans in their attempt to steal a democratic seat for the purpose of od- uiittirg a negro. THE GAG RtTtES WORK. __ The successful-filibuster the oremocrafs have made against the unseating of Mr. Venable for r. M eok past has shown that Kced's gag rules, v hlch at the beginning of the session vcere guaranteed to cure and prevent filibuster- ing, are remedies in no sense of the word. It to Itaston legislation and prevent fili- bustering that they -were drawn. For that purpose they have been proven absolutely worthless, and Heed's claim is shattered. Again when Reed took the gavel and gave ou his rules he promised an adjournment in June, yet here it is three months after date, and the promibe has not been redeemed. Indeed, neither Eeod nor hia rules have done what vras expected of them, and the republicans are becoming dissatisfied with their speaker. Under the old rules many of them say business have progressed just as rapidly, and had the democrats attempted the same tactics aienow pursuing, perhaps the force bill never have parsed the house. The democrats will try these tactics on the force bill if it passes the senate, and comes back to the house nest session. THE LOTTERY LAW. The lottery law, which recently received the president's signature, has gone into effect. 'The law provides that no papers containing a lottery advertisement shall be distributed through the mails. The law also excludes any lottery company, or agent of any lottery com- pany, from the use of the mails for regiat ered letters, or any other purpose. Yesterday the here refused to accept for mailing The Sunday Chronicle, a weekly newspaper published here. The postmaster general has issued orders to all postmasters to refuse to accept in the mails any newspapers containing lottery advertisements in any shape. Thus the papers that want to print lottery adver- tiaemen ts will have to print two editions, one without the advertisement for their out-of-town. subscribers, and another with the lottery advertisement ior their subscribers who receive their papers by carrier. The talk of this law breaking up the Louisiana lottery is all bosh, j They will receive money for tickets by express, and will advertise their drawings in all the city editions of papers. It is also said that our postal treaty provides that Canadian papers, it mat- ters not what they contain, can be sent through the United State mails, and itis said here that the lottery has made a contract with a Toronto "paper to print their advertisements and draw- ings and mail papers all over this co'untry to 'fee distributed free, especially those containing the drawings. The lottery representatives here say the bilJTis unconstitutional, and it is understood a test case will be made at once. It will probaljly be made special by the supreme court. THS ALLIANCE STRENGTH. The alliance will not show up so well in the next house as has been expected. A month ago it was predicted many quar- ters that the alliance membership of the next liouse would not be less than thirty, and some put it ns high as forty. It is, however, far from it. There will be but fourteen alliance- men, that is, alliancemen who have the subtreasury bill, in the next house. Of this are two on the list whoso elections are not ab- solutely assured. They are Mr. Everett, of Georgia, and Mr. Williams, of North Caro- ____________E. W. B. JKEEZV3 C.AM1E BLOCKED. The Keep V Qnorrnn from Showing Up. WASHINGTON, September O FerralJ. of Virginia, and Smith, of Arizona, the only democrats in tho hall whon tho house was called to order this morning. At the conclusion of prayor, tho clerk (under direction of the speaker) proceeded to call the roll on the approval of Fndaj's The resulted, yoas 153, nays quorum- ana a. call of the house was ordered. One hundred and fifty-nine members res- ponded to their no quorum. Tlio republican absentees wore Messrs. Brosius, Srvnsbrough, McCormick. T. M. Brown, of Indiana, Butterworth, Conuell Ewart, FinVy, Milhkon. Peters, Sweney and Wilson, of Kentucky. Mr. McKinloy moved an adjournment, but there were a number of republican members who were in favor remaining in session (it being understood that Brosius, McCor- mick, Butterworth and Syreney will return this afternoon) and who demanded aud secured tho yeas and nays. The motion was So, nays 70, and a republican caucus was announced to bo hold immediately. Proceedings of the Senate. WASHINGTON, September joint res- olution proposing an amendment to the con- stitution of tho United States in relation to manufacture, importation and sale of alco- holic liquors, having been reached on tho cal- endar, Mr. Blair, who had reported it from the committee on education and labor, called for a vote upon it. Mr. Cocfcrell ashed that the report be road. While the report was being road, Mr. Stew- art suggested that the reading would occupy too much time; but Mr. Blair thought the senate might well "devote a short time to a subject that was not to be tri'fied with. The reading of the report having occupied what as left of the hour assigned to the cal- onJar, no vote-was taken on tho joint resolu- tion. Tho senate then resumed consideration of the bill to define and regulate tho jurisdiction of the courts of the United States, the pending question being on Mr. Daniel's amendment offered last Saturday, extending the jurisdic- tion of the supreme court to all cases coa- viction of felony and to all cases where the matter in dispute is right to personal liberty or right to the custody of a child. After an argument by Mr. Evarts against the amendment, Mr. Vent offered a substitute for the bill. It proposes that there shall bo CHICAGO ISBAPPY QVESTIOIT O3f XBE IrOBED'S X'Allt 8XTE IS SATISFACTORILY SETTLED ATJDAST Ihe South Park Commissioners Tender Their Offer Accepted, ami There IB not care for that.

ATHENS, Ga., September -Athens came near having a case of death from asphyxiation yesterday morning. Mr. Mitchell, a jruest of Dr. Goss, was not at the breakfast table as usual and the family sent up after him. His room was found full of gas, and he was lying upon the bed in a state of insensibility. Dr. Gerdine was sent for, and after hard work for two hours, succeeded in reviving the unfortunate gentleman. At one time Saturday night the gas was very Jow, and it is supposed that it went entirely out in Mr. Mitchell's room, and theu when it loso again, filled the Tpom. It was a close call Dr. Mitchell had just arrived in the city front Birmingham. Tbey Secure SAVANNAH, Ga., September This city met Coloiijjl and the north- ern capitalists today in a most generous spirit. At the meeting of the council tonight, tho city agreed to sell Hutchison's island, opposite the city, for Thia is practically giving the Middle Georgia and Atlantic road a terminus.
