Au limit lias ta-en net ll J win the general dehate yet, hut an effort will tie made during the week to (tam a resolution placing a limit upon it, and that limit will lie abort. The Republicans talk about *»i*ttiiig it at one week and the Democrat* ask two weeks. An effort is tieing made to bring aland a compromise tin ten days, but with what success remains to I*** **«*en. The leaders of t he Kepuhih an aide have consulted among theins**!vet*; they have con suited with the a)»enker ami they have consulted with the Democratic mender* of the ways and means committee, but always with the same unKattafaotory result. The matter now rest* in the hands of the committee on rules, and a resolution will don Iii leas la* rejjorted from that committee at an early day, The business to lie considered in the house is that which may come up under suspension of the rules to-day. The Republican* are anxious to call up the river and harlair bill, and they claim that they have pledged t he two-thinis vote necessary to take it up. but the s|M*Hker has not said that he will recognise a member of the committee to take up the bill, and so its fate is still a problem. What other bual ness may Is* called up under suspension is a matter of speculation and of no certainty. On Saturday afternoon the house will listen to eulogies on the late Representative Wilbur of New York. The senate business is pretty well mapissl out for the week. although several important changes In the program may take place. The hill for the admission of Wyoming to the Union is down for consideration today, and the Jones silver hill for Wednesday, lf the Jones hill should Is* taken up as j*er program and the Wyoming bill should not have ta*, n dis l»***d of, the latter will likely Is* taken up in t he morning hour inch (lay while the Jones hill is consideml after *2 o’clock, The consideration of the Jones bill may lie postjsiiied if there se*-.ns any probability that the Republican caucus can come to an agreement, but as matters now stand the senate will go into the silver debate without any caucus action binding the Republican members. And if this condition remains unchanged it is altogether likely that the senate will pass a measure which will Is* in substance a fm* coinage bill, or rather a bill for the free purchase of bullion. On Saturday the senate will consider measures on the calendar. One •lay during the week will Is* given over to the funeral of the late Senator Beck.

VV ash im ITX is, May ft Senator James H | Beck of Kent la ky dmpjssi ileal! ill the Baltimore aud Potomac railway *-latioti at 4 o'clock Saturday afternoou. The (muse of death was jut rn Iv is. Senator Beck had ju-t arri veil from ! New York and was accompanied bv his daughter, .Mrs. tnsslloe, wife of Maj. (food toe of the United States marine (*orj»s Ile got off the train with the rest I of tin* passengers and walked with hit* daughter the entire length of the platform ! and through the gale leading to the station proper. Ho seer ted to walk with an effort and breathe with inlaw, but these symptoms had I avn the usual acc* lnpaui-melds of exert iou with him for some months pool. After {Hissing into the station be and Ids (laughter were joined by his private sec re ! tary. who had brought a carriage to take them borne. A few words were exchanged ! with regard to th** chiv* of luggage, when the senator suddenly turned [Mile, and, with the remark, “I feel dimity," fell into the arms of his companion*. They could not support his weight and he rimpjied to the floor, where he aw (silted away. His I daughter screamed for help. The lssty was I Kirtle into the office of the station- ! master, (treat excitement ensued, and although it was apparent the senator was dead, half a dozen messengers were dis-patched for physicians and all the remedies at hand were applied, tint to no purpose. Dr. Chamberlain was the first physician to arrive, and he was soon followed by Dr. Wells and others. but there was nothing for them to do except to examine the lindy ' to determine the cause of death A suj*er- i Arial examination was sufficient to satisfy the physicians that ieath resulted from paralysis of the heart. The body will In* removed to la*xingtoii, I Ky.. Senator Beck's home, and w ill la* intern'd there, where his wife and one daughter wen* buried. Senator Beek left ■ a son. George, who at pveaeut is some- • wherein Wyoming. The only child left is his daughter, Mrs. Goodloe There was a large number of callers at the house during the evening. When the death of Senator Beck was an- ■ nouneed in the senate, Mr. Ingalls in MtrtlCted the assistant sergeant at arms to pnaeed at once to the railroad station, ascertain the facts, make all pro|*er arrangements, and have the senate Hag half-masted. ARRANGEMENTS FOK THE FUNERAL. Arrangements for dilator Birks funeral j are nearly completed. Tho formal! announcement of his death will la* made iu 1 the senate by Senator Blackburn to-day, aud the senate will at once adjourn and tomorrow the funeral services will to* held * in the senate chamber. To-day to*ilia suspension day in the house Mr. C arlisle will uot formally announce the death of ^citator Beck until after consultation with Speaker I teed, and so it is probable the house w ill not adjoin* until late iu the afternoon. After the funeral serviced to-day the senator’s remains will tie taken over the Chesapeake and Ohio road to I Lexington, Ky., where the funeral will take place on Thursday. All of the Kentucky delegotion in congress w ill accompany the remains to I.ex-ington and attend the funeral there.

He was always a leader in debate* upon silver (juest ions. Eulogized by Hr. Talmage. BiJisiKi v n, May 5.—Her.

ESTIMATE OF THE TURNOUT OF WORKINGMEN IN LONDON. All Former Demonstration* Eclipsed—Th* Crowd Is a Quiet (In*, and the Celite Hav* Nothin* to l>o—The Speakers Mostly Moderate In Their (.angling*. The Movement iu Rpain. Ix)Ntx»N, May 5.—Yesterday should become * memorable one in the history of demonstrations on the {tart of the tailoring clauses of Fnglaud, for it has never lavn •quailed si pee t he days of monster outpourings of the jieople which characterized the reform movement of iso#. The most moderate estimate of the number of people taking {Wirt in the Hyde Park meetings is half » million, of w hich ‘JOU.0UO cann* in processions and JUU.UOU gathered at will. This is a very conservative calculation. however, and some observer* accustomed to gauge targe crowds, do not hesitate to assert that fully 1,0(10,000people participated in the demonstration. There were 15U band- of music in the procession*. The affair was a three headed one, the lirgest uuinl»er of men ta*ing uuder the leadership of the trades council—a distinctively nnn-Soeialiatic tasty. A nom*-i what less numerous contingent ac know-edged the leadership of the I central committee, which leans strong-! ly toward Socialism, while a third ; and relatively small division was j under the control of the out and-out Socialistic organization known as the Social j Democratic Federation. All possibility of strife o*£f riel iou among the various laslies | has lieeii avoided by careful previous ar j raugetneuts, and for once jieople of all ■hades of opinion on the labor question {joined in h common movement. Tho I trades council procession was badly led, aud for the most part wa- hardly better I thau a straggling mob of ill-conditioned, 'dirty aud ragged men, whose appearance J made it plain that they represented the I unemployed rather than the workingmen. These forlorn hosta made no attemjit to keep step,even when they were within hearing of music. They moved along |»ell melt, but despite their miserable apjiearauce i they manifested gold nature and indulged j in horse play and rude joking among themselves. Their gorgeous banners were j in odd contrast with the evident poverty of the bearers. There wi re over ’JIA) of I these femblems, adorned with all manner I of mottoes and devices. One was noticed having a good portrait of Mr. Gladstone on one side and on the reverse aide the I grim motto: “We Kill Ourselves to Feed Ourselves.” The music furnished wax a* * a rule more noisy than artistic. In {mum ing Westminster Abby and Buckingham ; {wince the bands banged wildly as if in de • fiance of those aristocrat ic precincts; and it 1 is probable that many a shudderof dismay was thus caused which could not have been produced by cl alo* aud stones. The central committee’s procession moved in mtieh th* ta*-t form, ami was made up of a more well-to-do set of workmen. When all the marchers had rent bed ’he park the scene wa* an imposing one. I he ; plainness of the garb characterizing th* assemblage as a whole was largely off set by the gay batmen* and by the surprising j prevalence of ja*nional decoration in the shajie of bright rihtama, rosettes, etc., some being the badges of th* unions, others impromptu embellishment*. The scene resembled a huge fair, the crowd outside of the dense rent nil portion tieing dispersed iu smaller groups, each made up of the auditors of some orators of more moderate fame than that of the leaders who addressed the main crowd from the Central platforms. The main belt, threequarters of a mile long by half a mile wide was crammed with a solid moss of peojde, wdiile all the streets aud ways leading to the park were more (or less congested The Whitechapel district seemed to have disgorged a considerable fraction of its unhappy denizens to swell the throng. The crow*d eblied and j flowed, and there was precisely sj**akiug a continuous sin cession of audiences. This was largely the necessary result of the j paucity of sjieakers. It w as impossible for half the people to hear what was said, aud in fact no one seemed to care much !about listening. The gathering together in the jniblic place and exchanging greetings and opinions seemed to ta* the idea uppermoHt, The marching, or coming and going, continued from *J o'clock until after night fall. The best speakers were those furnished by the central committee, including the more noted of the moderate Socialistic leaders, I*a Fargoe, a Frenchman, whose chief claim to distinction is Lased on his distant relationship to the late Karl Marx, was one of the few sjieakers w ho indulged in violent language. He declared that France was ruled by a syndicate of -w eaters and swindlers, who should lie swept away. He admitted that the English people |KMM*esses more power than the French to bring atamt reforms peaceably. Group* of marchers continued to arrive long after darkness hod jolt an end to speaking. The day was an orderly one de-sjiite the thronged condition of the street*. The police did not iuterferte in any way with the jirocessions or meetings, except to put a veto upon an attempt to lead an eleghant through the (greetsas |»art of the turn-out. The only arrests were those of thieves, who were out in great force, their prey lieing naturally the spectators ou the sidewalks rather than the humble marchers in the streets. Altogether the demonstration wa* a creditable one to the great eight-hour movement. KMLN's disagreeable surprise. When Kudu Pasha a fortnight a started for the take country at the head of a (merman expedition and with the undisguised intention of forestalling the British iii the annexation business in those remote regions, the English newspajiers vehem wally abused the British Hast African com patly for their apparent supineness, aud indulged in loud jeremiads over the pros jolt of Eng land's certain defeat in the struggle for enjiremacy in the Dark Continent. Sir William Mackumon. j»re»l-dent of the comically, and Sir Francis de Winton, its new governor, professed great indignation at Emin’s ingratitude, and did not deny that they had ben outmameu I vred. Stanley upon being appealed to merely shrugged his shoulders aud opined that Emin would uot ta* able to do much I The cat is now out of the lutg, aud a moat unpleasant animal he is, from the German point of view. Emin Pasha, in fact, has a disagreeable surprise awaiting him The country over which he hoped to hoist the German flag, south of his old jHMseHsions, has already been opened up by an expedi lion led by Mr. Jackson, which was quietly went out last summer by the British East African company, and the whole of th* I Uganda territory and possessions on the north of the Lake have been placed under English protection. All this hapjzened six months ago. and as Emit! is uot a tighter, he will probably accept occotn jilt abv4 foot*. Although Starkey i« unquestionably tk« bos of England at present, A mast be admitted that the reception tendered him by the Emin Pasha relief coram it tee Friday night was not an unqualified success. St. James's hall was not filled in spite of the fact that it was known that th* Prince and Princess of Wales, the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, and a half dozen other royalists were to be present, and it is se! dom that the Briton neglects an opportunity of viewing collectively th* members of th* reigning family. Stanley furnished no report of his odeech to newrs-papers, aud sjxike in so low a tone and so indistinctly that the reporters could not “take" him entire. The audience glittered with diamonds. The Princess of Wales wore one in lier coiffure of a size that would startle a New York alderman, and the Duchess* of Edinburgh and the Baroness Burdett Coutt* seemed to be encased in an armor of precious stones The prince** mon* than once dozed and nodded during the progress of the great explorer’* speech, which was after all only a repetition of what everyone had already heard of the journey across the Dark Continent. Evidently Stanley does not intend to hurt the sale of his hook by divuig: cg the contents beforehand. A FAMOUS MORSI DIES. Hermit, the winner of the sensational Iierhy in 18*57, which was run in a snow Storm and for which fib to I was liet against him, died lost week from old age. The horse tielouged to Henry Chaplin, now minister for agriculture, who won a fortune by the animal’s victory. It is a wellknown story now how the theu Marquis of Hastings had stolen away Chaplin's affianced bride, aud It was the marquis who ta t against Hermit os long aa he could find any one to lay money on the horse. Chaplin himself was chief backer, and he hod the satisfaction of half ruining the man who robbed him of his intended wife. Beyond his winning of th* Derby, Hermit was rather a failure as a racehorse. but at the stud he produced more prize winners than any other stallion, aud yielded his owners a princely income. His progeny won in stakes alone £315,988 in England and £37,343 in France. SPANISH DEMONSTRATIONS. A Moo moil Throughout Hpsin Favoring the Eight-Hour I>m> . Madrid, May 5. An extensive Socialist demotist ration was made here yesterday. After listening to violent sjieeches the parties jai ut* marched to the residence of Premier Sagas!a. who received a deputation liearing resolutions in favor of the eight-hour day. Senor Sagnsta refused to consider the subject matter of the resolutions whereupon the deputation informed him that the workingmen proposed to obtain the eight-hour concession by legal means if possible, but otherwise by force. There was no disorder. I Altair meetings were held yesterday in Barcelona and all the other large cities of Spain, jietitious were adopted everywhere asking the governors of the provinces to favor legislation looking to the adojition of the eight hour day. All the demonstra tions wereof nu orderly character and numerous striker* have offered to return to work if they can lie guaranteed protection. k Th* Kaiser Disappointed. BERLIN, Mays.—A guest at ti** recent Staats Hath banquet, replying to the Emperor William'* sjieech, denounced the Socialist hill as an obnoxious measure, tending to embitter the feelings of the working classes and stimulates sympathy with Sx-talLin. The speakerdlk-lared that the measure ought to be summarily dropped.

HE PID NOT APOLOG TZF.. INSPECTOR BYRNES SAYS HE WILL STAND BY HIS STATEMENTS* Victoria Woodhull and Hor Husband Call od Him and Ask Him to Retract, But He Refuses to Do So. and Tells Them to Go Ahead and Sue Him—Two Attempts at Murder In Syracuse*. New Yoke, May 5.—Chief Inspector Byrnes denies that he apologized to Mrs. John Biddulph Martin, better kuown as Victoria Woodhull, when she and her bus baud visited his office on Saturday. The inspector said. “I read in one or two morning papers an interview with Mrs. Martiu, who with her hitNliaiid and her brother-in-law, Dennis W. O’Halloran, came to see me at my office Saturday. It is stated that I made an apology and shook hands with Victoria. I wish to say Dow that this is false. There was no apology and I did not shake hands with Mrs. Martin. Some days ago Mr. O’Halloran came to my office and asked me if I could meet Mr. anil Mrs. Martin, and state in their presence that the article that was published derogatory to Mrs. Martin, aud purporting to come from me, was untrue. “I said no, I would not meet them; that according to disj>atclie* from Europe they hod stated they were going to sue me. I said let them go ahead aud sue me, aud I will see them in court. After thinking the matter over I decided, however, that I would see them and told Mr O’Halloran I received a letter say tug they would call Saturday. Mr. O’Halloran came on Saturday aud introduced a man and woman os Mr. aud Mrs Martin. He at once com inenced to make a speech about being persecuted. I interrupted him and asked what his business was with me. She then spoke of the trials and tribulations of herself and sister. She wanted me to read a number of letters sh* had received, but I refused to look at them. She said the or tide re furred to hod done herself and sis ter much harm. I said I was responsible for the article and was prepared to meet them in any court. They said It was untrue that they threatened to sue me. “Mr. Martin wanted me tosav something in refutation of the article which hod done his wife an injustice. I said again that they could sue me, but Mr. Martin said he hod no such idea. Then Mr. Martin took a lot of jiapers from a valise and wanted me to read them. I declined. Ile left the j>»js*rs on my desk and I threw them In the waste basket. Before going Mr Martin said he was sorry to have this trouble with me. I said I was sorry also, but that I am a public officer, and responsible for my state menta. Mrs. Martin liecame greatly agitated aud her face was flushed in leaving. I took care not to see these jieople alone. I had one of my men In the office who can testify to what was said and done. I was the author of the article complaiuedof and resjsinsible for it. I rejieat that I made no apology.” TWO ATTEMPTS AT MURDER. A loung Pole Stabbed by a Member of a Wedding Party. Syracuse, N.
