THE HOUSE. An- Quorum*, Appear and Dtsappear-other Election Cane, Washington, Sept. In the house, Buchanan, of New Jersey, rose to correct tile record. Yesterday Cummings had asked that the Maine delegation be excused on account of “political illness.” In view of the fact that the Maine delegation, especially the speaker, was in robust health, lie thought some mistake had been made. [Laughter.] Mr. Haugen, of Wisconsin, called up the Virginia election case of Langston against Venable. Mr. O'Ferrall, of Virginia. raised a question of consideration and the vote resulted: yeas 80, nays ll— no quorum. A call of the house was ordered. A bare quorum was disclosed and the question was recurred upon the question of consideration pending which O'Ferrall moved an adjournment. The motion to adjourn was lost—yeas 40, nays 93. On the question of consideration the quorum disappeared, the vote standing: yeas ST, nays 7, and another call was ordered. No quorum appearing, Haugen offered a resolution directing the sargeant-at-arms to summon the absentees. Mr. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, moved to lay Haugen's resolution on the table; lost—yeas 46, nays 90. Mr. Haugen said it was evident the news from Maine had so demoralized the democratic friends as to render them incapable of doing anv business to-day. He therefore moved tHat tile house adjourn, which was agreed to. At the Overwhelming Republican Victory in Maine.

Washington, Sept. 9.—The magnificent victory in Maine yesterday is the subject of general conversation in political circles to-day. The general verdict is that it is a gratifying indorsement of th** work of the present congress, and that its effect upon tile November election must Im* very satisfactory. Republicans who had practically given up carrying tin* next house are now very hopeful. Blaine’s followers are not so enthusiastic, how. ver, as they see clearly that it makes Reed a very important presidential figure. It is now very evident that unless some unforseen occurrence intervenes Reed will be very prominent as a presidential candidate two years lienee. Tile Republican Plurality Crow* Larger and Larger.

Washington. Sept. 9.—Pension Commissioner Charles T. Lincoln was to-day before the Raton investigating committee. He testified that the completed tiles system recommended by Lemon didn't commend itself to his judgment. Claimants without attorneys were placed by it at a disadvantage. Probably less than five per cent of the original claimants were without attorneys. Witness did not think any particular attorney had been benefited by the order. Washington attorneys as a whole might have been benefited for a time because of the location. He did not believe the slightest degree of partiality or favoritism had been shown by any officer or employe of the pension bureau towards an attorney. The new order was giving more satisfaction to the country at large than the original plan and had considerably expedited th** business, although some injustice was worked perhaps toward the claimants with attorneys. II. Rossback, a mechanical engineer, started in to tell how he met in Memphis, several years ago, Frank A. Smith, who, he had been told, was the patentee of the Universal refrigerator. Commissioner Raum objected to this line of inquiry. Mr. Cooper insisted he could prove by the witness that Smith was working on the citizens of Memphis, trying to create a corporation just as had been done here: that the citizens of Memphis invested and the patentee decamped just a< he had done afterward in California. He next came to the pension office as the best place to work and organized a scheme, with th** aid of the head of the bureau, that was a fraud. Commissioner Raum interrupted to say that Cooper took his refrigerator charges from certain newspaper articles. The men who wrote those articles knew they were lies and Cooper to-day knew they were false. He had not proven ins charges and now sought to throw out a drag-net to bring in other tilings so as to break down the enterprises in which he (Raum) was interested. II** did not propose to have his private business subjected to investigation unless the house directed it. Mr. Lewis argued for a full and fair investigation. If the invention was impracticable and worthless the country ought to know it, because he believed an officer of the United States should not use hi- official position to boost any worthless enterprise. In answer to a question, Cooper said he did not know that he could prove that General Raum knew the invention wa- a fraud. He could prove he ought to know it. After further discussion the matter went over and Smyser was recalled. Mr. Cooper asked if he had not told Lewis (a member of the committee) that he had no money interest in the stock. Mr. Smyser replyed he had told Lewis while the stock was entered in his nam** he did not own all of it but represented some gentlemen in Ohio. This brought Lewis to his feet and there wos a wordy war between himself and Smyser for some time. Lewis finally admitted he might have misunderstood him. Adjourned.

In Biddeford. where the democrats have usually had a majority in excess of 300, tho figure is cut down to 55, owing to iii** dropping of the French voters front the lists, by order of tHo federal court. It was decided by this tribunal, it will be remembered, that the municipal court then*, not being a court of record, could not legally perform the function of naturalization. a decision which bor** especially hard upon tile democrats and one which, had Air. Reed's plurality been small, would probably have been used as a basis for a contest of ids seat in the next house of representatives. Upon tie* recommendation of til** Hon. William L. Springer, every disfranchised voter was brought to tin* polls and a record was kept of all who were refused the right to vote. Contrary to expectations there was in Biddeford no repetition of the riotous proceedings which characterized tile local election last spring. There is great rejoicing among republicans here* to-night, over Mr. Reed's success. The republicans arc extravagant in their jubilations. They had not predicted more than 2,000 plurality at the most, and they are wild with delight. Th** speaker himself is radiant. IL* will go back to Washington in the morning fuller than ever of tin* idea that ii*1 is the whole congress, and that he is ti» be Harrison's successor. a deliberate assembly; to enact into a law the monstrous proposals for overturning the election laws of states: demands a reduction of the tariff to the lowest rate compatible with a just discharge of the obligations of the government; congratulates the republican party upon the recent concessions to the democratic policy involved in the advocacy by certain leaders of reciprocity; denounces the McKinley bill; believes in the elevation of labor; extends cordial greeting to Grover Cleveland, assuritug him of the universal regard of the people; favors free binding twine; practical temperance laws; exact Justice in laws governing common carriers and public warehouses; endorses liberal pensions but censures wastefulness in that regard. Among the nominees for governor was S. M. Owen, of Minneapolis, who is now tile candidate of the Farmers' Alliance. A letter was read from him saying he was a candidate of a party lighting for principles, not for office and he could not permit himself to be brought before the democratic convention. The first ballot resulted:    Thomas Wilson, of Winona, 365; A. A. Ames, of Minneapolis, 104; Buck, Owen, Durant and Kelly one each. Wilson’s nomination was made unanimous. E. G. Bah I, of Brown county, was nominated for lieutenant-governor and a recess was then taken. At the evening session the ticket wa1* completed as follows:    Secretary of state, A. T. Lindholm, of Stillwater; auditor, Adolph Bierman, of Oimstead county; treasurer, Charles M. Foote, of Minneapolis; attorney-general, D. T. Calhoun, of St. Cloud: clerk of the supreme court, T. F.

Reed—I very heartily congratulate you and your colleagues in congress from Maine noon the generous popular endorsement you have received. [Signed]. Benjamin Harrison. Democrat* at Washington Surprised. Chi* ago, Sept. 9.—Th*: Washington correspondent of lim Tribune telegraphs that the democrats there disappeared early Monday night after getting the news from Main**. They had been making a “ 'possum campaign'' in Maim* and thought the speaker would really have less than one thousand plurality. So confident were tliey that tile plan of a contest against Reed iii case the next house be democratic had been all worked out. A dozen or more ambitious members had begun to quarrel among themselves as to who should rise in th*, house to-morrow and sarcastically ask to have tin* news from Speaker Reed's district road. The republican congressmen from what thuy had heard thought the speaker would have a plurality of 1.500 or 1.6(H). For an off year they believed this would be an excellent showing. Nobody in Washington looked for tho majority to come close to the figures in tim presidential year. The surprise with which the returns were received was therefore genuine in both parties. Hurly in th** evening Secretary’ Carter, of tile congressional committee, received a telegram from Joe Manley saying that Reed's plurality would not be less than 2,000. While waiting for confirmation of tiffs good news th** press dispatches came saying that the majority would b<* greater than in 18'S, and th** figures were close to 3,000. As it kept rising the spirits of tin- republican congressmen rose also, and a good many of them joined in telegrams congratulating Mr. Reed on his success in “counting a quorum.” Though the democrats slipped away early to-night they will be confronted with their empty boasts to the house to-morrow. Chicago'* Great Fair to he Held at Lake Front and Jackson Park*. Chicago, Sept. 9.—The directors of the world’s fair at a meeting tiffs afternoon, reaffirmed their choice of some months ago and selected tile dual site of the I,ake Front and Jackson Bark as the place for the location of the great exposition. The Lake Front is a long gras? covered common on the edge of Lake Michigan, and bordering the business contr** of Chicago. It contains at present about ninety acres. It is the design to place thereon the grand entrance to Un-ex position and buildings for tine arts aud kindred displays. Jackson Bark is al?** on tin* lake shore, about live miles from the court house, and is to have tin* agricultural. live stock, and other exhibits of that nature, besides others of general interest. Four hundred acres are available in Jackson Bark, and tin* wide approaches thereto, which were recently added to the original tender. The two sites are to be so connected by rail and water accomodations that but. a few minutes will be spent in passing from on** locality to tile other. The final and decisive ballot on the sit** question resulted: Lake Front and Jackson Bark 23 North Side 4. West Side 8. The choice of the dual site was then made unanimous. London, Sept. 9.—English military men are watching Russian military movements witli much curosiiy. Many things are known to them which do not appear in th** papers, but even the scraps of news about movements of troops which are allowed to leak out have a peculiar significance. A German military journal of high authority a few days ago announced its belief that the maneuvers got up for the entertainment of Emperor William around Narva were only a faree and were intended to conceal, rather that display, the strength and efficiency of the Russian army, while, til** real maneuvers would take place on un enormous scale in the south, and that no foreign spectators would be allowed to be present. The inference was clear that there was to be something about these southern maneuvers which the ezar's government wished to conceal and which woald be worth knowing. Th*: preparations for this display of military force are now going on actively and on un enormous scale. Local railway traffic in Russia is terribly blockaded and in many places wholly stopped owing to tie* monopolization of tile lines by the military authorities for transportation of troops to the scene of til*- southern man- I euvers. Every effort is being made to determine how speedily the forces could be mobilized in ease of the sudden breaking out of war. The latter point i- ju-t what is excising tile minds of English officers, and there is a growing belief among them that tiff' ma>sing of troops is done with a view to an actual movement southward. It is remembered that for months previous to the outbreak of th** last Russo-Turkish war a great camp was established, ostensibly for the purpose of training the troops at KischenetT in souther!! Russia, and that when all was ready a large army wa' pushed immediately to th** frontier ami war was begun. As Russia is now much better equipped wit ii railroads an army could be Hurled on Turkish territory, eitlier iii Asia or Europe, much quicker than then, arui well-informed military 111**11 are therefore watching anxiously for th** next move. Iii th** meantime the action of til** Turks in Armenia continues to supply Russia with pretexts for interference. The latest advices from Armenia say that the Kurds ar** destroying crops and raiding villages, while the Turkish authorities remain passive, making no attempts to protect the Christians. A PRETTY GIRL'S PLUNGE. Lillie Young Jump* from the Back of an Exeur*ioii Boat. The Labor Movement. London, Sept. 9.—Great public interest still center' in th*- labor movement. There is again a tendency to strike among the London doekmen, and a portion of them have already -truck. Another strike has broken out among the doekmen, coal porters and others at Southampton. Cables from Australia indicate that the great strike which has paralyzed many tradesand nearly brought business to a standstill, shows signs of collapsing. Th*: inconvenience and even actual suffering caused throughout th** country is so great that the strikers ar** deprived of public sympathy and support, arid it is considered impossible for the present deadlock to continue much longer. Cardinal Manning declares himself nnequiv really for an eight-hour day for miners, th** exclusion of women from mines, the observance of Sunday and the adoption of a iiding scale of wages.

The young lady graduating class of the convent of St. Alysius called on Bresident and Mrs. Harrison in the afternoon, having driven over from Lorretto to express to the president the respects of the institution and wish that he would visit the convent if he has an opportunity. The president this evening received a telegram from J. II. Manley, of Maine, saying:    “Full returns show-a majority of nineteen thousand, the largest since 1866, at a state national election.

Portland, Sept. 9.—Speaker Reed, in conversation last evening with a newspaper man, said:    “I    confess    to    having felt a deep solicitude as to the result in tiffs district. So great a plurality was given me at the last election, owing to local causes which our own people will comprehend, that almost any reasonable result was liable to misunderstanding. On our off year men do not come out on tile majority side, and tin: short, very short campaign we nave had could not have reached them in the regular way. To have received, in such a year, so large a plurality is something which has more than personal significance. There have been cast for me many democratic votes. I do not in th** least Hatter myself that they were cast for me personally. They were put into the ballot box to show the world that some men outside my own party applaud the idea that the house of representatives ought to be a business body, carrying out the wishes of tile American people. When you consider how hard a thing it is for a man who still means to stay by his party to vote against it you will st**: the significance of the result. I could even bring into dearer relief this result by stating other facts, but the case does not need it.” New Y'ork, Sept. 9.—On the upper deck of til*; iron steamboat Cepheus there was a jolly party from the Bearlof Bekin company when coming up from Long Branch on the tir-t trip yesterday. In lh*: company was a handsome twenty-year-old, Lillie Young, and Slade, til** sandwich man. Lillie Young turned to the sandwich man and said airily: “Shall I jump?” Swinging his hat about his head Slade shouted dramatically:    “Let lier go, Gallagher.” Then, to his surprise, Lillie did jump far out into til** water, and as a vision of crinoline flew past tin* people on tile lower deck and a woman was seen struggling in the water th**r** was great excitement. The Cepheus passed on several hundred yards befop stopping. By that time the girl was pit-kt-d up by a passing tug. She wa? taken to Chambers Street hospital on a charge of attempted suicide.

Sept. 9.—The Baris Fbjaro's revelations about Boulanger's intrigues against the republic contain some astounding statements, which have all been allowed to go uncontradicted. Among them is one that after the reestablishment of the monarchy, which wa* tin* real aim of the movement, and Boulanger was placed at the head of tie* army, he was prepared to sacrifice Rochefort, Naquet, Lagu* rn- and other radicals and socialists who had helped hint under the mistaken idea that they were only overturning one kind of republic to set up another, and to consent to have them imprisoned or shot according to the wish of the new government. But tile general was counting hi-chickens before they were hatched, and there is now no doubt that General Sau>-sier, th** governor of Baris, had th** most elaborate preprrations perfected to effectually suppress the first attempt ar an outbreak and could count on th** loyal support of the army. It also appears tHat Minister of the Interior Constat!* was fully cognizant of Boulanger’s treason, and that tilt* sudden fight, of th** general alone prevented ids being arrested and shot within twenty-four hours.
