Washington, Jan, 23.
HE attendance of senators at the
opening of today' station was
larger than usual, both political
parties being pretty equally rep
Mr. Turpie (Detn., Ind.) reported
from the committee on foreign rela
tions the following:
Resolved, That from thefact9 and paper

require that it shall pursue its owu line of
policy: foreigu intervention in the political
aflairsor the islands win D i regained as
an net unfriendly to the government of
the United States.
MET WITH COMMITTEE'S FAVOR
Mr. Turpi said that the resolution
complied with the unanimous position
of the committee, save a dissent from
the senator from Oregon (Mr. Dolpb),
as to the tirst section. He had been
also directed by the committee to say
that the resolution had no relation to
the special investigation now pjudiug
before the committee. That was a sep
The resolution went over till tomor
row and was ordered to be printed.
The resolution offered bv Mr. Peffer
(Pop., Kan.), Jan. IS, declaring that
in the opinion of the senate
the secretary of the treasury
Inn no lawful authority for issuing and
selling bonds as proposed in his recent
notice, was laid before the senate an 1
Mr. Stewart (Rep , Neb.) spoke in sup
port of it. Much of his speech was
given to a rehearsal of the machina
tions of the "inner ring of the gold
combination." He denied the right of
the secretary to issue the proposed
bonds. At the close of Mr. Stewart's
remarks the resolution was referred to
the committee on finance.
The senate then resumed considera
tion of the house bill to repeal the
federal election laws, and was ad
dressed by Mr. Wilson (R9p., Iowa) in
opposition to it.
The election bill was laid aside in
formally and Mr. Cullom (Rep., III.)
addressed the senate in favor of the res
olution offered by Mr. Frye (Rep , Me. f
Jan. 8, declaring that pending the
investigation by the committee of for
eign relations, there should be no in
terference on the part of the United
States government by moral influence
or phvsic.il force, for the restoration of
the queen or the maintenance of the
provisional government in the Ha
waiian islands, The bill for the repeal
of the election laws was agaiu taken
tip and Mr. Chandler (Rap., N. H.) ad
dressed the senate in opposition to the
chandler's pointed ALLUSION.
In the course of Mr. Chandler's ar
gument he made a pointed allusion to
Senator Hill s knowledge of the alleged
fraud by which the last state senate of
New York had been made Democratic
and to Judge Maynard's part in that
npposed fraud; and he expressed the
hope that the present Republican leg
islature of New York would undo the
legislation resulting from that ''lar
ceny,'' andjthat the Democratic gover
nor of New York would have the good
sense aud patriotism to approve its ac
tion. At this point Mr. Chandler,
without concluding his argument,
yielded to a motion to proceed to exec
utive business, and afterward, at 5 p.
m., the senate adjourned until tomor
row. The sense of the hones in the matter
of free sugar was again ma le manifest
. when the smendiuent offered by Mr.
Warner (Dam., N. Y ) putting refined
sugar on the free lttt was reaffirmed,
while that of Mr. Robertson's (Dam.,
La.) amendment putting a tax on su
gar was defeated, thus leaving all
sugar sftee. The greater part of the
day was given up to a consider
ation of the free coal schedule,
but the only result achieved was to
show the existence in the Democratic
ranks of a number of members with
protectionist .proclivities. The iron
ore schedule was then taken up. but
the house wae unable to dispose of It in
the time that remained before recess,
so it went over until tomorrow.
During the debate on the coil sohed
nle Mr. Oatee (Dera., Ala. ) offered an
amendment striking ont coal from the
free list and putting a duty of 40 cents
a ton on it. and 20 cents a ton on stack.
Mr. Wise (Dern . Vn ) offered an amend
ment to this amendment, placing the
duty at 50 cents per ton. Mr. McKaig
(Dem . Md.) submitted a substitute
Urovidiug for- the retention of the
present law of 75 cents per ton on coal
and 80 cents per ton on stack. Mr.
McKaig gave as his reasons for asking
for protection on coal the fact
that tbe occupation of coal mining was
extra hazardous, and that the extra
men employed in it had to pay a tax
on the tools they used.
He was interrupted by Mr. Dalzell
(Republican, Pennsylvania,) who asked
if he had not voted the other day for
"I did," replied Mr. McKaig. "but I
gave my reasons for it."
"I thought so," said Mr. Dalzell In a
self satisfied way.
Mr. McKaig -"s followed by Mr.
Raynor (DemocT.it, Maryland) who de
lirered an earnest and eloquent plea
for free coal.
Mr. Tnckur(Dem , Va,,) said he ad
vocated the amendment substituting
the coal schedule of the McKinley law
lor the corresponding provision of the
Wilson bill. Mr. Anderson (Dem., W.
Va.,) earnestly advocated the retention
of tue present duty. Mr. Oates (Dem ,
Ala.,) sid he did not come under the
classification of a protectionist for his
owu district and u free trader In every
other, for ttiere was not a particle of
coal In tbe district which lie rpre
sented, but he advocated a tariff on
coal iu the interest of the people,
Mr. Hicks (Ben., Pit ) spoke for Penn
sylvania in behalf of a tariff on coal.
Why coal should bo struck from the
duitable list had never been satisfac
torily explained He thought Penn
sylvania, Virginia, West Virginia,
Tennessee and Alabama and the other
coal producing states should stand
firmly for a tariff on coal.
Mr. Dalzell (Rep., Pa.,) said there
was no sectionalism in the production
of coal, and lioth Pennsylvania and the
south were equally interested. Destroy
the coal industry, said Mr. Dalzell, and
you strike a blow ut two classes of la
borers, the miners themselves, and the
vast army of oinplnyes engaged in the
transportation of coal. Wages of coal
miners iu Pennsylvania were double
the wages received by English eoal
miners. The employes of the trans
portation companies engaged ID carry
iug coal received (50 per cent, more
than tbeir English prototypes.
ALL AMENDMENTS REJECTED.
Mr. Turpiu (Dim.. Ala.), offend an
amendment to the substitute provi ling
than the tax of 70 cents per ton should
be decreased VH ueuts a year aud cease
altogether after tbe sixth years.
A vote was then taken on the amend
ment offered by Mr. Wise, raising the
tariff to 80 cents and it was defeated by
a viva voce vote. The vote was then
taken on the amendment offered by
Mr. Turpiu, and it was lost lyes, 2;

Steamer Normannia Forced to Return to
New York ft Repairs.
New York, Jan. 23. The Hamburg
American line steamer Normunuia,
which sailed from this port for Genoa
last Thursday, returned today with her
forward deck house stove in. Captain
Hebich says that Sunday morning dur
ing a heavy easterly gale a tremendous
sea boarded the vessel over the bows,
smashing in forward rails and stanch
ions and staving in forward house and
Captain Hebich's story of the acci
dent is a vivid one. ''It was exactly
10 o'clock iu the morning," said he,
"when the lookout passed word aft
that three immense seas were dead
ahead of us. We had no sooner heard
of them than we felt them in all their
fury. The first was like a roaring cat
aract and it Doarded us, falling on the
foredeck with the roar of a cannon. It
seemed fully a minute before it cleared
away, and we had scarcely recovered
from the shock beforo tbe other two
were on us with a force tqual, if not
greater than the first.
"When they had gone we found that
the forward, deckhouse was smashed in
for twenty feet, the rails carried aw ay
end the stannhions demolished. The
cabins wore flooded." Those injured
by the mountainons masses of water
were seven m-uibers of the crew.

New York, Jan. 88. All doubts as
to why William Zell, treasurer of the
