Another Setback for White Metal
Adherents in Congress.
THEIR DEFEAT OVERWHELMING.
Senate Amendment Defeated by 215 to 00.
At the Night Session Mr. Talbert Is As
sailed by Mr. Hardy and Retaliates in
Washington, Feb. 15. The majority
h pra-iu st free silver in the house yesterday,
when the final vote was taken on concur
rence in thei senate free coinage amend
ment, was larger than that of Thursday
in committee of the whole. On Thursday
ihe motion to concur was defeated by 100
io SO, a majority of 110; yesterday it was
beaten by 15 to i)J. a majority of 125. The
vote was a record making vote, and count
ing the pairs but thirty-seven out of 35o
Members were unaccounted for. Perhaps
.v few absentee-; d:dged, but most of them
were unavoulabl y abs.Mi. and were unable
io secure pairs. An ;malysi;of the vote
hov-.s that lSUl-publicansand thirty-one
Demoer.t- s voted against concurrence and
ib'ty-eight Democrat--, t'.vent v-live Repub-
T!:e debate which preceded the
co.e vasol an interesting character, hut
:L-void of ;ip.y sensational features.
The r alieries as wstial on a held dav in
the lower branch of coai.-;. ss were crowded
! o the doors, and quite a number of se:i
liors sat through the live Jiour debate.
ctvtnry Herbert was also present. Kx
peaker C;i--p p v -eated the closing ar
gument for the silver men. and was re
plied to by Mr. Turner, a Dcni K-raticcoI-I
'ague f rem Georgia, in a two hour speech.
The personal rivalry between the two
leaders of the opposing factions of the
Democratic side of the house added to the
interest of the occasion. Mr. Dalzell, of
Pennsylvania, closed in behalf of the Re
publicans. The partisans of the respective
rhampioiis missed no opport unity to ac
claim their approval when telling points
A very exciting row was only prevented
at the night session of the house, which
was devoted to t he eon-iderati n of privet e
ptv.smr hills, by the ood .' sho ,Tn
by Mr. Talbe-'n. of South Carolina, whose
utterances at the night session two weeks
ago caused ..Mr. Barrett, of Massachusetts,
to offer n resolution to censure him for
"treasonable ami seditious" language.
Last night Mr.. Talbert was opposing a
bill to pension a soldier's widow who had
subsequently remarried and had been di
vorced from her second husband, when
Mr. Hardy, Indiana liepubliean.arose and
made a isuvage personal attack upon Mr.
Talbert. South Carolina, he said, had al
ways been raising her voice in opposition
to the Union.
"We have heard from South Carolina,"
said he, "'year in and year out, except the
four years when she was out of the Union.
She has caused more trouble than any
state in the Union from the time when
John C. Calhoun tried to nullify the
statutes of the United States, in 183 1, and
Jackson threatened to hang him for his
pains, up to th present time when the
gentleman from South Carolina appears
In this body an. I a gentleman with sim
ilar propensities appears at the other end
of ihe Capiiot. Her record here is with
out a parallel. I am here to vote for every
pension bill presented to this house, in
spite of South Carolina, which has not
sent an honest representative to congress
Mr. Talbert was evidently suffering tin
der great excitement while this attack was
being made.and an outbreak was expected,
but he restrained himself with dilliculty
and turned the attack with a pleasant ref
erence to the fact that Canada had been
heard from (Mr. Hardy was born in Can
ada). Later, however, while he was dis
cussing another bill, he took occasion to
remark that he had noticed those who
had taken no part in the war were loudest
in their proclamations of patriotism and
their denunciations of those who had
fought against the Union. Mr. Talbert
himself served in the Confederate army
throughout the war. Mr. Hardy did not
servo in the Union army. "I have no
ticed," concluded Mr. Talbert, "that those
who are invincible in time of peace were
generally invisible in time of war."
A Repulse for the Tariff liill.
Washington, Feb. 14. The friends of
the tariff bill met an unexpected repulse
yesterday afternoon when, by the decisive
vote of 21 yeas to 29 nays, the senate de
feated the motion of Mr. Morrill, chair
man of the llnanco committee, to take up
the measure. The negative vote which de
feated the motion was given by Demo
crats, Populists and four Republican sen
atorsviz, Teller. Mantle, Dubois and Car
ter. The alfirmative vote was entirely Re
publican, but its total is less than half
of the aggregate Republican strength.
Mr. Morrill's motion has been anticipated
for some days, but it was not pressed
pending consideration of the urgent de
ficiency appropriation bill.
Krnger Resents English Interference.
London, Feb. 17. The Berlin correspon
dent of The Chronicle sends a dispatch,
apparently inspired by Dr. Leyds, the sec
retary of state of the Transvaal, which
6ays:"The Transvaal government consid
ers Secretary Chamberlain's proposed
home rule a preposterous and utterly un
workable scheme. It may almost bo ac
cepted as certain that President Kruger
will not visit England, because Ms pres
ence there would be a yirtual recognition
of England's right to interfere in the in
ternal affairs of the Transvaal."

only one of the living conscious, and he
does not remember all that happened. The
scene at the boat, was horrible. The liv

ilshermen suggested that in desperation
the survivors tried to sustain life on the
ilesh of their dead companions.
The six survivors are Josa Rouriques,
Sam WiMLmis, Henry Johnson, John

ix Ex-Explorer Who Thinks It
GIVES FwEASOITS FOB HIS BELIEF.
In tha Meantime There Has Been No Con
firmation of the Report at St. Peters
burg:, Though There It Is Deemed Xot
St. Peteksbukg, Feb. 14. A dispatch
from Irkutsk, Siberia, says that a Sibe
rian trader named Kouchnareff, who is
noting in the capacity of agent for Dr.
Nansen, the Arctic explorer, has informed
the prefect of Kolmysk that he has re
ceived information that Nansen has
reached the north pole, where he found
land, and thar he is now on his way back.
Xai'EIIvillk, Ills , Feb. 13. Evlyn D.
Baldwin, the meteorologist of the Peary
fxpedition of In'JO 94, was asked what ho
thought of the reported discovery of the
north polo by Dr. Nansen.
"I think it highly probable," he replied.
"It is the result of well calculated plans,
and nor unexpected. Dr. Nansen has cer
tainly, it would appear, accomplished that
for which he has striven for at least the
past live years. The voyage of the Jean-
ette under Do Long until the crushing of
the vessel in latitude 77 degrees 15 minutes
and longitude 155 east, indicated that the
near approach to the north pole was to bo
made by a well equipped and properly con
structed vessel from that direction by the
New Siberian islands.
"The Jeanette had drifted through two
long Areiio nights in that region, and this
would indicate that if it is possible for a
yessel under ordinary conditions to endure
so long, it is to be expected that one of
special consti action, as was Dr. Nansen's,
would succeed in going much farther. Dr.
Nansen's advance since June 24, 1S93, has
given him time to make at lea-it very close
approach to the north pole, and I think it
highly probable that, with favorable con
ditions, he has succeeded in arriving at
the long coveted point.
"Since communication with tho New
Siberian islands at the mouth of the Lena
and Delta is continuously had by means
of the traders and hunters of that region,
it is not improbable that Dr. Nansen has
had means of sending dispatches to the
Russian settlements in Central Siberia,
and thus Home. &o itliink the report is
not at all improbable. The appropriation
made by the Norwegian government, and
supplemented by private subscriptions, so
abundantly equipped Dr. Nansen that he
has been unhampered so far as hi3 ship is
concerned, and the conditions have been
altogether very favorable.
"It was, however, expected that the first
news from him would chronicle his arri
val off the north coast of Greenland, as It
vvas his theory that his vessel would drift
with the ice north of the New Siberian
islands nearly, if not directly, over the
north pole, and thence southward to tho
coast of Greenland. It seems, however,
that instead of drifting south after once
having arrived at the north pole he has re
turned southward by way of the outward
voyage, as did De Long after the crushing
of the Jeanette.'
No Confirmation in St. Petersburg.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 15. No confirma
tion has been received of the news that
Dr. Nansen has discovered the north pole
and is returning to civilization. If he is
returning his own dispatches are likely to
arrive before any answer is possible to in
quiries sent to such wild regions, devoid
as they are of telegraph or other means of
regular communication. Captain Wig
gins opines that if it is true that Nansen
is returning he must have abandoned his
ship. This observer regards the report re
garding Nansen as not impossible.
Drutal Asylum Attendants Convicted.
Wilmington, Del., Feb. 17. John J.
Swan and Daniel Brown, attendants at

Rahe, after being released from tho po
lice station on bail, packed up a few goods
and left town. It is believed that he has
gone to New York. His wife, who is now
in York, Pa., has been notified of his dis
grace, but she refuses to believe it. A
telegram she sent to her friends in this
city says it is all a case of blackmail, and
that her husband's enemies are trying to

acterized the dead girl as a party to tho

that he has admitted that he willingly

SENATOR QU-VTS CANDIDACY.
lie Announces That He Is iu the Presi
dential Fiht to Win.
PITTSBURG, Feb. 17. Senator Quay has
dispelled all doubts as to the sincerity of
the movement in favor of his nomination
for the presidency at the St. Louis conven
tion through an interview with Frank
De II. Rob: s in, of Cleveland.
Mr. Robison, who is the repi-esentativo
of Mark A. Banna, ex-Governor MjXin
ley's right hand man, called on Senator
Quay at his home in Beaver yesterday and
pointedly asked the latter what his real
position in the presidential race is. Tho
query was brought about by the numerous
statements that Senator Quay's candidacy
was merely a bluff.
M-. Robison said- the senator received
htm cordially, and in answer to the lead
ing question unhesitatingly, and without
qualification, said his candidacy was bom
fide in every respect, and that he was in
the fight to win. Should he fail it would
not be because his friends would not work
faithfully to attain their end.
Mr. Robison was pleased with the out
spoken way in which Senator Quay met
him, but says the McKinley forces will bo
nothing daunted, and will not waver a
particle in their allegiance to him.
Russia's Advance in Korea."
London, Feb. 17. The Times prints-a
dispatch from Kobe, Japan, which says:
News from Seoul, Korea, proves that Rus
sia made a remarkable coup on the night
of Feb. 10. On that night 200 Russian
marines, with a field gun, were loaded at
Chemulpo and marched to Seoul. The
king secretly left the palace for the Rus
sian legation, whence he proclaimed his
ministers guilty of treason. Two of tho
ministers were arrested and executed and
the others fled. The tai-won-kun (the
father of the king) is a prisoner at the le
gation. An anti-Japanese ministry was
then formed. A bitter feeling has been
aroused in Japan. It is believed this pre
ludes a Russian protectorate over Korea.
