•‘Mr. Chairman:—lf I have read the
constitution of the United States cor
rectly, it defines the powers and duties
of the chief executive and powers and
■duties of the membership of this house;
and I tell you that today if ever rebuke
was needed to one who has trampled
■down the prerogatives of the people it
is to that man who has used his influ
ence to usurp this entire government to
himself. The time has come when there
should be something more than brains,
belly and brass to this government.”
With tke Committees.
While no formal meeting of the com
mittee on rules has been held regarding
the Carlisle banking bill, the Demo
cratic members of the committee have
tacitly agreed that a vote shall be taken
on Friday of this week, and that the
rule be reported soon regulating debate
during the interim.
The senate committee on interstate
commerce considered the railroad bill.
A letter was received from Commis
sioner Morrison, of the interstate com
merce commission, calling attention to
certain defects in the measure. When
the bill was discussed in the house a
statement was made that it provided
that railroads could fix their own rates,
but these rates should not become oper
ative until submitted to the commis
The same discussion led to the con
clusion that the commission was given
ample safeguards and complete super
vision of matter. This contention Mr.
Morrison disputes, and says the bill as
now framed gives the commission su
pervision only after railroads have
agreed upon their rates.
He desires that an amendment should
be added that will give the commission
that thorough control the necessities of
the case requires.
The committee ordered favorable re
port on the house bill known as the
commercial travelers’ bill.
This is a bill in which the commer
cial travellers are especially interested
and for which they have worked hard.
It has passed the house.

BAD BOYS FIGHT.
Two Brothers, Who Were Terrors, Killed

Louisville, Jan. B.—A special to The
Times from Harrodsburg, Ky., ’ says:
At Satvisa, a small village 10 miles
from here, in a fight between Sylvester
and Seymour Jordan, on one side, and
Wiil Wright and John Cosby on the
other, Seymour Jordan’s throat was cut
from ear to ear and Sylvester Jordan
was shot in the neck, probably fatally.
How Wright and Cosby escaped with
out a scratch is a miracle as both the
Jordans were experts in the use of both
pistol and knife. The Jordans had been
terrors in that end of Mercer county for
years. Deerwood Jordan another
brother, is now serving a term in the
It was these same Jordans who sev

A Gentleman from Siam Asks Moderate
Damages of Uncle Sam.
San Francisco, Jan. B.—One of the
latest arrivals in this city is S. J. Cheek,
of Bangkok, Siam, who is en route to
Washington in connection with a claim
for $4,000,000 damages against Siam.
The case is sensational and has been
pending before the state department for
some months. The trouble is over a
10-years’ commission to Dr. M. A.
Cheek, formerly of Oakland, for hand
ling the teakwood of Siam.
Thus far, the whole case has been the
subject of secret correspondence be
tween the two governments, but as S.
J. Cheek is now personally going to see
Secretary Gresham, he sees no reason
for keeping it quiet any longer.
On the steamer on which Mr. Cheek
arrived are sundry documents from the
Siamese government to Secretary Gres

‘‘This call is made in response to a

Governor Brown'. Reply.
Frankfort, Ky., Jan. B.—Governor
Brown has replied to Judge Buckwai

tucky negro criminals be brought to
this state for trial, the negro claiming
that he wouid be lynched. The state

part which attacks Judge Buckwaiter’s

most bitter. He makes Buckwaiter’s

Stambouloff on a charge of abetting the
murder of Dr. Berot years ago. Bulga

A COMBINE AGAINST DEMOCRACY
There is Some Impatience in
OVER THE DEBATE ON THE CANAL BILL
George’, Bankruptcy Measure Waiting—A
Code of the Pension Laws Wanted.
Torey Bill Advocates.
Washington, Jan. B.—There is one
consideration which has not, so far,
been taken into account to influence the
Republican and Populist senators to
come together at the first meeting of
the senate after March 4 for the reor
ganization of that body, and that is the
effect such a combination, or the
failure to make it, the opportunity be
ing presented, would have upon the
two parties in the southern states.
It is understood that southern repre
sentatives of both parties are bringing
this phase of the question to the atten
tion of senators and urging that an or
ganization in which both parties would
have representation in the distribution
of the patronage and the arrangement
of the committees would be the best ev
dence it would be possible to give the
southern voters of the effectiveness of
this joint work in the late campaign
and the strongest assurance possible to
give them that the combination had not
been made for the purpose of hood
winking the people.
The Populists claim that in addition
to Senators Peffer, Allen, Kyle and
Stewart, the avowed Populists now sit
ting in the senate, Senator Jones of
Nevada will act with them, as will Sen
ators Irby and Tillman of South Caro
lina, and Mr. Butler of North Carolina,
giving them a representation of eight
senators after March 4.
. A great many Republican senators
disparage the idea of any reorganization
and many who are not averse to it con
tend that an agreement between the
Republicans and Democrats is more
natural than a combination of Populists
impatience in the Senate.
There is going to be some impatience
in the senate on the part of the cham
pions of other bills over the prolonged
debate on the Nicaragua canal bill. The
advocates of the bankruptcy bill are
growing/fe-ipecially solicitious, and it is
rumored* that Senator George, who has
the bankruptcy bill in his keeping, will
soon attempt to have it kept up even if
in doing so he would have to ask that
the Nicaragua bill be displaced. Mr.
George pronounced this rumor as with
out foundation, but admitted that he
had been disappointed that the debate
on the canal bill had continued for such
a length of time. He said that it had
been understood when the order for the
consideration of the measure had been
agreed on that the debate on the canal
bill would not continue to exceed six
“I shall not attempt to deplace it,”
he s lid, “but shall be very glad when it
is out of the way.”
Senator Morgan said after the close of
the session that he did not think there
would be a great many more speeches
on the canal bill, and that he believed
that two days more would bring the de
bate to a close if it could continue with
“I am, ” he said, “as anxious as any
one can be to close the debate, but
there have been unforeseen delays.”
Senator George expects to encounter
considerable opposition to the bank
It is expected that the advocates of'
the Torney bill will oppose the pending
bill. The fight will be in a gentleman
ly way between the advocates of the
voluntary bankruptcy bill and those of
the invo.untary bankruptcy.
To Codify the Pension Laws,
Representative Martin, chairman of
the house committee on invalid pen
sions, will make an effort to push to en
actment, befofe the death of the Fifty
third congress, the bill embodying the
codification of pension acts which is the
one project most desired by the pension
bureau. The codification has been com
piled by Messrs. T. F. Demis and D. 8.
Parker, two experts who are detailed
by the pension commissioner for special
service with the house committee on in
valid pensions and pensions respective
ly. It is the result of much work and
research, and, if it secures the authori
zation of congress, will materially les
sen the work of pension officials and at
Since 1878, when the statistics at
large were combined with the revised
statutes, the pension laws have been
among the most difficult of any class of
the statute books to sift and determine.
Pension legislation has been enacted
since the revolutionary war, with a
constantly increasing record of enact
ments and revisions which have greatly
complicated the code. To learn any
final word on any feature of the pension
law it is necessary to search in the re
vised statutes; but the new codification
gives the whole body of law in concise
and conveniently arranged form.
The house consented to a special night
session for the reading of the bill. In
view of its importance it was thought
best to not push the bill through with
out a reading, but it was not desired to
consume as much of the time as the
house in its regular hours would be
necessary to deliver the whole docu
ment. It was estimated that the clerk
would require four hours to proclaim
the 140 pages.
The sanction of Speaker Crisp has
been secured for the measure, and as
its passage is earnestly desired by Com
missioner Lochren and Assistant Secre
to»r of the Interior Reynolds, he has
promised to recognize Mr. martin to
call it up in the near future.
The bill is also on the senate calendar
and members of the senate committee
on pensions are pledged to put forth
every effort to secure its consideration.

Paris, Jan. B.—The Paris newspapers
agree in the prophecy that the session
of the chamber of deputies of 1895
which has just begun, will be a stormy
and eventful one. It is expected that

that the first business of the session
will be a discussion of the question of

is now confined in prison for having in
sulted President Casimir Perier.
M. Richard, who is editor of The
Chambard, a Socialist newspaper, was
elected to the chamber of deputies a
few days ago to represent the Thirteenth
district of Paris.
As the liberty of deputy cannot be
restricted during the session of the
