THE attention of the enuce was
held for two hours today by a
very intereatiui speech from Mr
Teller. Colorado, on the Ha
waiian resolution, after which the reeo
Intton was pi icod on the oalendar, Mr.
Thurston, the Hawaiian minister, was
an interested auditor. Mr Teller took
n very advanced groui:d in favor
of the annexation of th Ha
waiian islands an I ultimately of
Cuba and Canada. He argued
that the provisional government of
Hawaii was au wxistiatf (jovernmetit
which could not be overthrown 'or
questioned by the government of the
United States aud he said that he
would vote the resolution as reported
from the committee on foreigu rela
tions, even with the clause in it that it
is unwise aud inexpedient under exist
ing eon litione to consider at this time
any project of annxation of Hawaiian
territory to the United States.
The boose bill to repeal the federal
election laws was taken up and speeches
against it were made by Senators
Chandler (N. H. ) and Higgins(Me). Mr.

New York. The bill went over with
out action. The senate adjourned at

After the reading ot Saturday's joar
nal Chairman McCreary, of the com
mittee on foreign affairs, reported a
resolution expressing the Sonne of the
house in regard to the Hawaiian af
fair. It was referred to the house cal
endar. Mr. Blair (Rep., N. H.,) asked
permission to fill the minority report,
w ch waa agreed to. At 11 15 the
h se went into committee of the
T ole on the tariff bill, Hnd Mr. Mc
din iDem., Tenn .i offered aa an
lendment to the tariff bill the inter
ii..l revenne bill, including the income
tax featnre. The bill was read In full
and imedlately afterward Mr. McMil
lin addressed the committee in aapport
of the bill.
Mr Ray (Rep., N. Y ,) took the floor
to speak on the income tax He as -aerted
tnat the existing business de
pression waa not due to protection or
to the MeKiul-y bill, bnt to the fear of
the Wilson bill. He pictured the mis
ery which existed an I which he
claimed was due to the Democratic
policy and in ordev to restore confidence
it waa proposed to issne bondi and in
crease the national debt. The income
tax was the twin sister of free trade.

Mr. Bland reminded Mr. Ray that
the same prediction was made last
summer when it waa proposed to repeal
the silver purchase law. Mr. Hall,
(Bern. Mo. ), the income tax champion,
then took a hand in the debate. He
wanted to a.k Mr. Ray whether he was
for the bill or against. Mr. Ray re
fused to reply to the question.
Mr. Hall continued to press his ques
tion without getting any direct an
swer, when Mr. Ray suddenly en
quired whether the administration was
in favor of an income tax. "Answer
me yes or no," he said triumphantly
amid the laughter and applause of the
Republican side. Mr. Hall hesi
tated a moment while the mirth
increased and finally replia I
tbat the administration waa in
favor of a tax on corporations He
was not in a position to know whether
the administration favored an indi

Arguments In Progress on tho Appli
cation tor an Injunction by tho
Knights of Labor.
Washington, Jan. 80. Arguments
were to lay heard before Judge Cox of
the District Supreme court on nvmli-
Oation of Mister Workmen Sovereign
ami T. B McGnlrt of the Knights ot
Labor for an in junrtion to restrain
Secretary Carlisle from issuitg $5u,
000,000 bonds, as proposed in his recti t
boud circulation. Judge Cos reserved
his decision and announced th it to
morrow or Wednesday ho would state
his conclusion iu the case.
Although few, if any, of the large
number of government officials who
have given attention to the question
have auy doubt as to the result of tho
outcome of the attempt made by the
Knights of Labor to enjoiu Secretary
Carlisle issuiug bonds as proposed by
him.it is evident that there is consider
able interest in the variom steps that
have been taken.
As bearing on the step about to be
taken by the Knights of Labor to en
join Secretary Carlisle, a prominent
official has called the attention of a re
porter to a case that came up in the
supreme court not long ago in an effort
to restrain President Andrew Johnson
from enforcing certain acts of congress
known as the reconstruction acts. An
official admitted in this particular case
th president was sought to be en
joined, but said that aa the cabinet
officers merely executed the will of
tue executive, the eifort waa prao
ticallv the same. He had no donbt
the efforts of the Knights would result
in failure, that is, if this step taken by
them were limited to an effort to re
straining the secretary from issuing

Bran. Ion Hay, this morning
When she tirst bumped on the rocks
she was giveu up for lost, as she was
stirrouuded by a heavy surf and big
seas were continually washing over
her. A number of the fishermen of
the coast gathered on the shore and
looked on as the Port Yarrock beat to
pieces, for nothing could be done to
save the crew, as no biat which the
fishermen possessed was capable of be
ing launched, much less getting along
side the stranded ship. At 10 o'clock
this morning till I'ort Yarrock began
breaking up, and the fats of her un
fortunate crew was sealed.
INTO THK MKHCILES8 SEA.
At 8 o'clock the Port Yarrock keeled
over beneath an extra heavy sea, which
struck her and carried away her main
aud mi.-. - -ii masts. Those of the crew
who were not washed overboard were
seen climbing into the fore rigging,
where they hud hardly sought refuge
when the foremast was also carried
away aud all tho unfortunate sailors,
including Captain Forbes, were throwu
into the sea.
Then followed the last fights for life
upon the part of tho crew. Some of
the unfortunate seamen had procured
lifeboats and others hud fastened them
selves to pioces of wreckage, which,
however, only sorved to drown them
all the quicker, for they were rolled
over and ovor by the huge seas and
drowned long before the wreckage
washed ashore. A few of the men
clung for a time to ono of the lifeboats
though it was nearly filled with wator.
but one by one they washed away and
drowned within sight of the onlookers
ashore, who could only kneel upon the
rocks and sands aud pray for the
souls of those struggling iu the wild
waves for life.
But the sea was too merciless, and
not one of those unfortunate seamen
reached the Bhore Jallve, One by one
they disappeared in the surf, ami little

until nothing remained of the ship or

SIBLEY FINALLY RECONSIDERS.
Rather Than Jeopard the Organiza
tion of His Party Ho Will
Serve Out His Term.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 'JO. Several days
ago Representative Sibley, of Pennsyl
vania, resigned his seat in tho house.
He was not in sympathy with the tar
iff bill. He felt that he could not con
sistently support it nnd he thought
better to retire from public life and
permit his constituents to elect a suc
cessor who would more properly repre
eeut their wishes. The resignation met
with n storm of protests from many of
the leading members of his party.
Mr. Sibley went over to Harrisburir
Saturday and had a conference with
(Governor Pattison. The governor
nrged hiin to reconsider his resigna
tion, his argument being thatbis with
drawal from congress at this time
would work more injury to the party
organization than any action which
Mr Sibley might take regarding the
tariff bill. Mr. Sibley received a num
ber of telegrams today from his con
stituents in Mesdville, Tittisville aud
other places urging him to withdraw
his resignation and serve out bis term.
In compliance with those requests
Mr. Sibley has decided to remain, but
this decision will not nffact his action
upon the tariff bill. Hn is still unaltera
bly opposed to that measure, and will
vote against it.

tb Cold Shoulder.
Nl'.w YORK, Jan. 30. At the confer
ence between bankers and Secretary
Carlisle this aftoruoou the talking was
done almost entirely by Secretary
Carlisle, who defended the legal
ity of the issue of bonds and
sought to impress upon the bank
ers the advantages of offering five
per cent bonds on a 3 per cent, basis.
President F. D Tappau, of the Galla
tin nationol bank, finally said: "Mr.
Secretary, it is ihe opinion of the ma
jority of tho New York bankers that
your proposed issue of bonds will not
be a success. What will yon do if it is
not? How mnsh do the subscriptions
now amount to?
Tho secretary replied, "I certainly do
not concede that the issue will not be
a success. 1 do not look forward to
any such contingency. As to tho
amount of tho subscriptions, I have not
charged my mind with the figures If
the subscriptions reach $7"), 000, 000, I
intend to sell that many bonds,"
No promises of subscription were
made by the baukors. The objection
of the bankers to Bnbscrihing tor the
bouds is that they carry no commission,
as in foimcr issues ahd are sold at too
high a premium for short term bonds
