THE CLOSING DAYS OF CONGRESS
Remarkable for Unexpected Happen
ingsMuch of the Business at the
Close of the Session Transacted
Behind Closed Doors in Order to
Head Off Campaign Speeches That
Had Been Prepared for Delivery
and Publication in the Congressional
Record.
Washington, Ang. 20.
F there ever had been a lingering
hope of more legislation during tint
remainder of this session of con
gress that hone whs dispelled bv a
remark made behind closed doors Fri
day afternoon by Mr. Quay, that it was
to be understood that t ,ere should lie
no more legislation at this session in
connection with contested matters.
This whs acqniesoel in, and a few uio
tnents later an adjournment wms bud,
The cloiing days of the SfRtioti have
been marked by a number of peculiar
Incidents, and the unexpected has fre
quently happened. Ow of the inci
dents refc rr-tl to has been the transac
tion of legislative business behind closed
floors. Senators of both parties bare a
number of measures that require only
the final action of the Ban ate to enact
them, bat the R'publioans were not
willing 'to proride the quorum, nor
would they permit busiuvst to proceed
In open session by uuanimnus eotisent
for fear the Democrats would by some
means find the opportunity to make. the
campaign speeches they have prep ire 1.
For this reason legislative business
against whieh no objection was made
Was transacted behind closed doors by
general consent Thursday and Friday,
0RAT0K9 8ILENCKD.
Under this arrangement, no speeches
could be made anil the Record was pre
vented from becoming the vehicle for
the dissemination of alleged campaign
literature.
Republicans were not, however, the
only ones who offered oi jtotions to the
consideration of contested matters.
Mr. Blanehard has effectually
blooked, for this season, at least, any
effort to change the rules so as to pro
Tide for cloture.
Mr. Blackbnrn wanted to have hit
committee sit during recess and con
sider the many amendments to the
rules that have beon referred to his
committee. lie asked ooment to this
arrangement Friday, bat Mr. Blan
ehard. who sees in cloture the possibil
ity of free sugar, entered an emphatio
Objection.
There will probably be no legislation
of any sort to-morrow or Tuesday.
To-morrow's session will probably bs
short, affording more than anything
lse an opportunity for the vice presi
dent to announce his signature to var
ious bills. A few odds and ends may
be cleared up, bat nothing more than
that. Tuesday the president will send
I message with hi approval or dis
approval of the various matters that
reach him at the last moment, and at
t o'clock the second session of the Fifty
third congress will stand adjourned.
HOESE ADJOURNS TOMORROW.
According to the terms of the resolu
tion agreed to Friday, Speaker Critp's
gavel will fall at 2 o'clock Tuesday
afternoon in token of the close of the
present session. It is not expected
that any business will be transacted in
the interim cer tainly nothing of any
Importance. A few private bills may
be passed and some additions made to
the calendar upon reports from com
committees, but that is all.
On Tuesday it joint committee of the
house and senate will be appointed to
wait upon the president and ask him if
be bas any further communication to
make to congress, and upon its report
that be bas nothing more to say the
two houses will be declared adjourned.

NIGAUAGUAN WAR.
Washington Department Officials
Anxiously Awaiting News from
the Mosquito Coast.
Washington, Aug. 20. Noitber the
state nor i tie navy department Is in
formed officially of the stirring events
reported to have occurred at Bine fields.
resulting in the arrest of British Vice
Consul Hatch and some American resi
dents of the place by the Nicaraguan
authorities. They are anxioasly await
ing official news, bat meanwhile are
aatisued that the American naval com
manders are fully qusl to the task of
protecting all Americans in Blu-fields
wno are entitled to such protection.
By direction of the state department
Captain O'Neil, of the Marhlebead, re
peatedly warned the American resi
dents at Blurfields that if tbey med
dled in the broils between the Nioara
gnans and the Mosqnitos, and by
taking np arms aguiust the former
violated the laws of tne country, they
would withdraw themselves from tho
protection of their own country. All
that our government can do consist
ently is to see that the arrested Ameri
cans are properly treated, tried
promptly and receive justice. All this
will probably be looked after by United
States Minister Baker at Managua,
where the prisoners have doubtless ar
rived by this time.
Secretary Oresbam said tonight that
no news had been received today at
t lie state department from Bluenelds,
bnt that he expected foil dispatches
from there tomorrow giving the latest
developments in tne situation there.
The secretary was averse to express
ing any opinions regarding matters at

Of
Supreme Lodge Knights or Pythias to Con
vene ot Washington.
THOUSANDS WILL BE IN 'LINE
One of the Grandest Events in the
History of the Order Imposing
Parades, Prize Drills and General
Festivities to Accompany the Meet
ing of the Supreme Body Seven
teen Hundred Tents Provided for
the Shelter of Visiting Brothers.
Washinoton, Aug. 20.
TO-MORROW will wituess the be
ginning of another of those great
gatherings for which Washing
ton has besome notable in recent
years. Its nnoleus will be the anno-,
meeting of the supreme lodge of tne
Knights of Pythias, which, while of
great interest to the members of the
order, will not have that general at
tractiveness of its auxiliary, the assem
binge of thousands of Knights of the
uniformed rank.
Stands for spectators have been
rected at principal points, aud nearly
every business plioe along the line of
march is decorated with bunting and
Pythian symbols. Over on tne grounds
of the Washington moutim nt is loeat. d
(nip Qsorge Washington, where 1,700
tents have been erected for the shelter
of the visiting commands.
It is impossible to give a correct esti
mate of the number of Knights who
will attend the encampm-nt, but the
officers admit the attendance has fallen
far below expectations. Tne failure of
railroad companies to make cut rates
to Washington is given as the princi
pal reason for the small contingent of
Pytbians from abroad. The number of
visitors is also rauoh smaller than thi
estimates made.
REUOIOUS SERVICES HELD.
Services were conducted at tho
Foundry Methodist Episcopal church
today by Rev. Mr. Sanderson, chaplain
of the supreme lodge, but the enoamp-
ment proper will not opeu uuttl to
morrow night. The opening will oon-
sist in a reception to officers and repre
sentatives of the supreme lodge, ten-
urea by the citizen s committee. Thi
will be held in the spacious convention
hall, wbloh will hold 10,000 people
Vice-President Stevenson and District
Commissioner Ross will make ad
dresses of welcom. and music will be
furnished by the Marine band.
Business will begin Tuesday with the
meeting of the supreme lodge, and con
tinuous sessions will be hold from day
to day until the business of the lodge
is completed. Ou Tuesday afternoon
the great parade of the uniform rank
will ta'te place, and President Cleve
land will review the marohers, as will
tlso general Schonald and the officers
of the supreme lodge.
DAY OF PRIZE PRILL
Wednesday will be the most inter
esting day of all, from a popular point
of view, for it marks the beginning of
the prize drills between the crack or
ganizations of the order. The drills
will be held on the groun Is of the
Washington Bass Ball club, and will
he continued through nntil September
1, when the prizes will be awarded.
Wednesday evening there will be a
grund illumination parade and a cav
alry prize drill at Fort Myer will be
the feature ot one of the remaining
days.
A large nnmber of commands will
contest tor the drill prizes. Some of
those intending to participate haye not
been formally entered yet, but a list,
practically complete, will be an
nounced shortly.
The rain fell steadily for three hours
this afternoon, leaving the white town,
built in the shadow of the great Wash
ington monument, after which it bas
been called Camp Washington, a
most uninviting an! disagreeable
place in which to have to turn
n after a long lourney. The
1.700 tents were found to be insufficient.
to accommodate those who have ap
plied tor such quarters and the gov
ernment was called on for the loan of
800 more which loan was granted.
About two thirds of the tent are now
occupied. It is estimated that there
are about 5,000 of the visiting Kuights
already in the oity and there are many
camps still to betr from

FOREIGN NEWS NOTES.
A disabled Bteamer having a black-
topped red funnel was seen bv the Et-
ruria, which arrived yesterday at Qieens
town. It is stated that the Austrian ambassa
dor, at the Czar's desire, has gone to
Vienna to arrange a meeting between the
Czar and Emperor Francis Joseph.
A statue of Joan of Arc was unveiled
last week at Domremy, the native place of
that heroine, in the presence of 20,000 pil
grims. There were religious processions
and fetes in honor to her memory.
The abandonment of the grand Rnssian
army maneuvers at Smolensk was deter
mined upon as the wish of the Imperial
physicians that the czar sbould avoid fa
tigue, as bis health Is not satisfactory.
Four fresh cases of cholera were renorted
yesterday from West Prussia. All of the
patients are Russian rurisuian. In Galicia
there were 148 new cases of cholera and
seventy-nine deaths: in Bukowiua five new
cases and nine deaths.
The Queen's speech Drnroeuintr narl la
ment the London Daily News says, will
contain a strong paragraph on the subject
of social and administrative difficulties in
Ireland, the nearest approach to a decla
ration against the bouse of lords which is
admissible in tho speech.
Through Veinna comes a story of a sea
man on the Russian steamer Sebastapool,
running between Odessa and Constant
inople, who fell in love with an American
passenger, a Miss Garrett, aud, hopeless

THE VICTORY AT CHEMULPO.
The letter from C iemulpo, Korea, re-
ceiveu at Chee i'oo yesterday, an
nouneing tho defeat, of a Japanese forou
and Killing ot IMW) Jitpaues soldiers,
is much commented upon here. If the
report of the battle is correct the Chi
nese cavalry, in dividing the Japanese
force in two parts,did excellent svrviee,
and the subsequent heavy fire of the
Chinese artillery from an eminence,
causing great havoc in the'ranks of the
soldiers of the Mikado, would seem to
denote generalship of no mean order
upon the part of the Chinese com
manders.

' china's equipment.
London, Aug. 25. China's efforts to
secure a war equipment in Europe are
being successfully prosecuted in smte
of neutrality obligations. Two or three
cargoes of arras and ammunition are
already on the way east, and several
more will leave Hamburg, for that is
the port now used for sash shipments,
within a few days. A certain tea mer
chant whose office is on Etstcheap,
London, is the agent for the pnrchnse
of ammunition for China, and he has
bis bauds full. Us receives a commis
sion of 5 per cent.
The Chinese minister here is also re
ceiving many offers of ships The
most important has been that of Hen
derson Brothers, who offered to sell the
Anonor line steamship City of Rome
for a round sum. The Chinese govern
ment refused to pv the price asked.
Twenty thousand rifles were success
fully shipped to China more than two
weeks ago, and are expected to arrive
within ten days. Since the declara
tion of war it has been deemed neces
sary to carefully close and barnhe iron
shutters at the Chinese legation in this
city, and the building now looks like a
safety deposit vault after sundown.
Ihe conflicting reports from the seat
or war have almost destroyed popular
intereat in the struggle iu Europe.
The unreliability of most of the news
from both Chinese and Japanese
sources has already become a byword,

victories and defeats on both sides at
