It is now asserted that in fie Senate there is a poor prospect for the Windom silver scheme, the entire Committee on Finance being opposed to it. Secretary Windom is a man of resources and will net be likely to abaudon bis policy on a slight provocation. Even should his bill fail it is no sign that its essential features will not go through in another form. It is hardly possible that tbe session will go by and nothing done with the silver question. The brotherhood of base ball players is naturally happy over the failure of the League managers' effort to secure a preliminary injunction restraining John M.

It is '-first blood" for the players, and will be regarded by the public as the forerunner of their I complete victory, if the issue ia pushed to a trial by jury. The American Forestry Association ia pushing its good work of saving tbe forests of the country from extermination. A bill has been prepared to be introduced into Congress providing for the temporary withdrawal from sale all public timber lands until measures can be adopted whereby some portion of our rapidly dwindling forests may be saved.

Washington, Jan. 29.-The long- expected conflict between Republicans and Democrats in tbe House began this after, noon on a motion by Mr. Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, calling up tbe West Virginia contested election case of Smith vs. Jackson. Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, raised the question of no quorum. The consideration and vote resulted, yes, 101, nays 2. Two Demoorats voted with the Republicans. The other Demoorats refrained from voting, Mr. Crisp raised thepointof noqaorum, and the Bpeaker, who as tbe roll was called bad jotted down the names of the Demoorats who did not respond, handed the list to the clerk, and directed him to record the members named as present but refusing to rote. speaker beed explains. This brought out a storm of objections from the Democrats. The Speaker in giving bis reasons for bis rnling cited tbe action of Governor Bill upon whom when President of tbe State Senate, tbe same bad devolved, and be bad to meet that duty in precisely the same manner. The Sneaker therefore ruled that there was a quorum present within the meaning of the institution. Mr. Crisp appealed from the decision, and demanded recognition, bnt tbe Speaker recognized Mr. Payson, of Illinois, for a motion to lay tbe appeal on the table. 3Ir. Crisp protested and appealed to tbe Speaker on his fairness as a man to give the Democrats opportunity to reply to the argument the Speaker bad made. Mr. Bntterwortb, of Ohio, said: "Tbe gentleman from IJJjnois will withdraw his motion to lay on the table. This is an important question, and the gentleman on the other side have a right to be heard." [Load applause on the Democratic side.] crisp's eeplt. Payson thereupon withdrew bis motion, and Mr. Crisp proceeded to reply to I he Speaker's argument. He said the decision of tbe Speaker was overturning a universal practice of a hundred years, and was going directly in the face of the arguments of distinguished Republicans. This was tbe first time in the history of tbe government that the Speaker had decided that he could go behind tbe roll call provided by the constitution. He quoted Speaker Blaine's ruling on the force bill that the Speaker bad not the power to declare a quorum. The Democrats stood on the constitutional right to have the yeas and nays entered on tbe journal, and when that right was exercised there could be no appeal from that journal. He quoted Garfield as denouncing a Bimilar rule when it was proposed in his time, and that statesman's suggestion that a Speaker might for his owo purposes see as many members present and not voting as suited hiB fancy. odthwaite's declaration. At this point Mr. Outhwaite arose, declared that he bad been counted by the Speaker as present when he bad not been on tbe Moor of the House during the roll call. At this point there was another turmult and an uproar, a number of members desiring to put questions to Crisp; but the Speaker soon succeeded in restoring comparative order. Mr- CriBp continuing, said Outhwaite's statement showed tbe force of Garfield's argument. "We have lived," said Crisp, through a great civil war amid unpar-alled parliamentary excitement, yet never before has it been thought necessary to introduce a rule which would givo a singlo person power to declare members present." Crisp qnoted Speaker Reed's language in debate at the time of Garfield's utterances when he used these words: "Tho constitutional Idea of a quorum is not the phyH-cial presence of a majority of members of the House, but a majority of the members present and participating in tho business of tbe House." "I appeal," Ciisp exolaimcd "from Philip drunk to Philip sober." This was greeted witb triumphant cheers from tbe Democratic side and applause in the galleries which Speaker Reed in his blandest manner and without a trace of excitement quelled by requesting the House to kindly oome to order. Mr. Crisp was asked from the Republican side what had been the result of the decision in Now Yoik quoted by the Speaker. Mr. Springer uniiwcrcd this quostion, saying that tbe action of Governor Hill had beendouounced by all Dem ocrats in the New York Legislature as revolutionary. cnisr's eloquent close. Crisp closed with a brilliant peroration which was received witb applause on the Democratic side and in the galleries. Cannon, of Illinois, replied to Crisp. Uu recapitulated the leading points of the pending question, and declared that the presence of members preseut not voting but counted by the chair, constituted more than a quorum. He retorted those who disagreed with this idea to tbe constitution, wbicb provides "Each House sball be the judge of the eleotion returns and qualifications of its own members, and tbe majority of each House shall constitute a quorum to do business." Tbe constitution does not require the majority to vote. It merely says a majority should constitute a quorum to do business. During hiB service in the House he had no recollection of such a question being raised and decided, but able Democratic members had during the Forty-sixth Congress taken position in debate which the Speaker took to-day. Sir. Springer argued that by general parliamentary law and under the constitution that when a quorum is present and that faot is ascertained and a majority votes for a measure that measure is adopted. When the Speaker announced the fact of the presenoe of over fifty members more than a quorum, good morals, good constitution, good law, good common sense and decency demanded that he declare the result of the vote as adopted by tbe majority of the House. Be would therefore, vote to sustain tbe decision of the chair. (Applause on the Republican side.) kb. carlisle's tosition. Mr. Carlisle next addressed tbe House arguing that the ruling of the Speaker was clearly opposed to tbe constitution. The courts of tbe country accepted tbe journal of tbe House as conclusive evidence of tbe action of the House. It was absolutely neccessary that it should record the proceedings accurately. It eould not be made to show any fact that the Speaker might wish. If the Speaker had a right to arbitrarily make a quorum and to dictate that it should go on the journal, then there was no longer any use for the representatives of tbe people in the House. The journal was the journal of the House, aud not of the Speaker. When tho house had directed the yeas and nays to be entered on tbe journal, that was tbe only evidence of what transpired. Mr. Carlisle argued at length on this line, urgin g that parliamentary law be adhered to. The Speaker Btated that tbe name of Mr. Outwaite was hot ou the list and in the confusion had been pronounced by mistake. Mr. McKinley then took the floor but yielded to a motion to adjourn, Tbe matter will come up to-morrow probably on the question of approving to-d ay's journal. Be dot Ills Money Back. A Warsaw, N.

How They Cracked tbe Safe anil Secured tbe Boodle-Kvidebtlj the Work or Professionals-Taken Home Demi-At the Opera House-The Democratic primaries- DeatH of Sirs. Merrill. Tbe citizens ot tbe usually (joiet borough of Beeoh Creek were thrown into a fever of excite meat this morning, by the discovery that a daring burglarly had been committed during tbe night at the general store of George D. Hobs. The store room is located in the business portion of tho town, and tbe discovery that burglars had been at work was not made until after daylight thia morning. The robber or robbers effected an entrance to the store by prying open the front doors. Once in j the room the burglars began woik upon 1 the safe. A considerable quantity of clover seed was scattered about over the floor to deaden tbe sound af Choir footsteps, and a hole was drilled in tbe top of the safe near tbe front, through which powder was introduced. When tbe charge was fired the safe was covered with blankets wbicb were found iu tbe store. The explosion bursted the safe doors open and left the valuables it contained within easy reach of tbe burglars. The gentleman who gave the Express representative information regarding the robbery stated that whon he left tbe town to come to this city it was not known exactly what all had been stolen from the store. One hundred, dollars was taken which belonged to Mr. Hess the proprietor of the store, and fifty dollars which the Beech Creek band had deposited in the safe was also stolen. It was thought that many valuable papers might also be missing and probably a lot of valuable goods from the store, but of this tbe proprietor was not certain at that time. The noise of the explosion was beard by a man who Uvcb near the store but ho supposed that tho sounds came from lain atiblo aud were made by his horses. A number of chisels and other blacksmith tools found in the store were recognized by tho village blacksmith as his property, and were taken from nib shop during the night. Tbft burglars were evidently experts at the business of safe cracking, as none but professional thieves oould do as effective work in such a skillful manner as was done on Mr. Hess' safe. There is no clue to the robbers, and no suspicious char-actors had boon seen in the vicinity yesterday. Since the above was written, additional information from Beeoh Creek is to tbe effect that over two hundred dollars in money was taken. The breaking of the Bafe was a very neat job, and was without doubt tbe work of professionals. A Fatal Leap. WiHlamspon Gazette aud Bulletin, Jan. 24ib Last night about half-past nine o'clock, John Norton, who had been an employe in the restaurant department of the Park Hotel, and who was discharged a short time ago on being too fond ot strong drink, felt or jumped from tho window of his bed room, on tho first sleeping floor, to tho ground, a distance of at least thirty feet, and received injuries therefrom which caused bis death in about two hours.

Judges Rockafeller, Buoher and Mayer bad enjoyed their usual noon meal and were comfortably located in room 32 at the Hepburn House this afternoon when a Republican young man called on them and was pleasantly greeted by the learood J udges. Three better natured, good looking men aro bard to find in Pennsylvania before or after a good diuuer, and tho trio hadn't the slightest objection to an interview ou tho subject mentioned by the reporter. Judge Furst, of Centre county, recently decided that the Constables elected in February last were not ctocted for throe years, as provided by tho act of February, 1889, and bis opinion on tho subject bas been tbe subject of much comment and not a little trouble amocg tho people of tho various counties; and in many places preparations are being made to elect Constables at the approaching February elections. It was upon this subject that the reporter questioned the three Judges who are hero in the Judicial Contest, and they readily submitted to an interview. "Yes," said the Judges, "there is somo difference of opinion among the Judges of the State regarding the proper construction of the Act of 1SSU relative to the fixing of tho terms of the constables who were elected in February last, but there is no difference between us. Wo hare all decided that tbe constables elected in February, 1S39, were elected for throe years, and there will bo no elections for Constables in our districts this year." Judge Mayer spoke for fcke others in the conversation quoted, and when he had concluded Judges Uockafoller and Butcher said "That's it exactly." Tho importance of the opinions of Judges Rockafeller, Bucher and Mayer on this vexed question will be recognized alj over Pennsylvania, li is directly contrary to the recent opinion of Judge Furst, which has attracted so much attention, Judge Metier, of Lycoming county, has also decided that tho Constables oleoted last February were elected for three years, aud Judge Yerkes, of Bucks county, bas decided the same way.

WHAT THEY WILL TRY TO PROVE Accused or Waylaying Clara Price Near Karthaus and Killing Her-Character or (he Kviden.ce-Testimony of Foot Prints -Lime vs. Phosphates-Sheep Tom to Pieces. Bkllefonte, Jan. 29.-The trial of Alfred Andrews, alias "Prince Alfred," charged with the killing of young Clara Price, near Kartbaus,. this county, on Wednesday, November 27, was begun this morning. Oue hour and a half was consumed in the selection of tbe jurors. District Attorney J. C. Meyer and Ex:Judge Orvis appeared for the commonwealth, and Col. J. L.Spangler and E. II. Chambers for tho prisoner. Judge Orvis opened the case to the jury recounting the facts and circumstances of the murder, and claiming that evidence would be produced by tbe Commonwealth proving the guilt of Andrews. The court was adjourned at tbe eon-elusion of his address, and reconvened a 2 o'clock this afternoon. Tbe testimony of the Commonwealth was then begun. Mrs. Mattie Meeker testified that Clara Price, who had been living at her boose, was at home on November 27th. Clara started out between 3 and 0 o'clock, witb a roll of butter and a loaf of bread, destined for her parent's homo, a little more than two miles distant. That was the last she bad seen her alive-James Marsteller was next called. He left Snowshoe to hunt about 10:45 o'clock, and came upon Clara's dead body in the road. He could see her tracks and traced them back about fifteen feet. The tracks showed that she had been running. Wm, Oswait was tbe next witness. 'Squire Kankin's evidence came next, and was the most interesting of all. He deaoribed how there were trackB of a woman and a man intermingled about the scoue of tho tragedy, indicating a serious scuffle, and how the man's tracks led into aud out of the woods that bordered the public road, lie produced, in evidence, tho basket carried by Clara, also her bat aud coat, with bullet holes in them. Dur iog tho examination bo showed that there was a peculiar difference between tbe impression of tho right and left feet of the man's track. David Price, the father of the murdered girl, was the last witness. Ho identified the clothes produced in court as thoso of his daughter Clara. Court thou adjourned until to-morrow morning* An Overdose of Quinine. G. h, MorJock, receiving teller at tbe First National Bank, took an overdose of quinine last night which for awhile nearly set him crazy.
