SINS AND SINNERS.
Oaten »Kis**rt to a Question of Privilege
Which the Speaker Overrules.
Washington, July JI.— In the house Oates of Alabama, rising to a question of privilege offered a resolution for the investigation of charges of corruption against the members of the holist* contained in a recent editorial in the \<i-tional Evownnixt..
Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, contended ti nu the resolution did not present a question of privilege. Tin- charge made in the editorial was indefinite. Nothing deli rite was charged for one until somebody made a reasonable charge and showed ability to procure evidence that would tend to establish it. Ile thought, the house owed it to its dignity and to the business of tin* country to pay no attention to it.
Mr. Lrosvenor, of Ohio, thought, that if the house was to take cognizance of this charge, although practically it was no charge, the resolution should be first sent to the committee.
Mr. Roger, of Arkansas, said it was generally understood chut tin- speaker passed all bills in this house, therefore, Hie charge was an inferential one against the speaker, and as an crncricux curio he thought the resolution should lie adopted.
Mr. Peters, of Kansas, was opposed to dignifying tin* editorial by paying any attention to it. lie denied the right of tho writer to make any charge in the name of the Farmers’ Alliance. There were some members of the Farmers’ Alliance who were demagogue.-, and who were attempting to lead the alliance into politics outside of its legitimate sphere of a lion. They were trying to create tin impression that all public men were corrupt and that they were the only virtuous men in tin* union and therefore should he put into office.
After further discussion the speaker ruled ilia tin* resolution wa- not a privileged one. In Hi ing so lie said that the newspaper editorial was of the vaguest character. It made no assertion, except by inference*.- it mad** no statement upon which anybody could he expected to predicate a belief or conviction.
The house sustained the decision of the chair, an appeal having been taken by Gates.
The house then w<ut into committee of the w ind ** on tin* senate amendments to tin* sundry civil appropriation hill.
The senate irrigation amendment was finally non-comurred in. The committee then rose aud the house adjourned.

Springfield, July 31.—The Chicago delegation which has been working against the Lake Front-Jackson parasite for the World’s Fair and which was supposed last night to have a majority of the judiciary committee, received another set back this morning when th** sub-committee’s report in favor of striking out the section providing for the issue of Sr*.(xxI,(IOO of park bonds w as rejected by a vote of twelve to thirteen and the minority report to add a clause to tin* section and provide that tin* question of issuing bonds shall first be submitted to a vote of the people of the park district, was then adopted. The section was also amended so as to provide that the amount of bonds should be >*1.0<M),OOO instead of 82,000.000.
In the house, the judiciary committee reported back the world’s fair bill, w hich was taken up and read a second time and most of the amendments of tin* judiciary committee adopted. An amendment providing for the enforcement of the eight hour law among the laborers on buildings and that none but citizens of the United States should he employed, was finally adopted in spite of the warning of one of the members that tin* adoption of this clause meant the turning over of the. world's fair to walking delegates, and that in this ease “hell
would he to pay.” T his speech was
made by Representative Graham, of
Dupage, who has always been a bitter opponent of what in* deems labor demagoguery. The debate on tin* matter was a lengthy and exulting one. Rice, of Douglass White of Stark, and Coeh-quenne of Richland, being among the most vigorous opponents of the amendment. It was adopted, however, by a vote of 114 to 22. As amended by Quinn, of Cook, before its adoption it provides that any violation of the eight-hour section by the directors or officers of the exposition shall he deemed a misdemeanor. punishable by a fine of not more than SI.OOO.

TS TERROR OF FIRE.
London, JI.—-Gladstone has relieved the dullness which has recently overspread English politics by making a vigorous attack on the ministerial policy toward the vatican. The secert mission of General Simmons ti* Rome a few months ago was the lever used by the “grand old man” to stir things up. and he did so in pretty lively fashion. The object of the mission was, he said, to induce the pope to prop up the tottering and failing cause of the anti-Irish party. This attack hits the tory party to the sore spot. It prides itself particularly on being the champion of prostestantism and it- contingent of eighteen supporters from Ulster—who are a minority of the representation from that province—are among the strongest pope haters in the world. The support of the vatican could only he secured by concessions on the education question, which would drive these Ulster tories into revolt. The Parnellites have already shown that they bitterly resent papa! interference in Irish politics, so that Lord Salisbury, while trying to strengthen his party, has been really providing a common ground for Parneli-its and Ulster tories to stand upon and preparing the way for much dissatisfaction in Engling. Gladstone lias not made a shrewder move for many years than th:tt speech of yesterday.
