appears as tho impossible should
some day turn out to bo probable and
a union finally accomplished, the five

Washington, Nov. 7.—When the
house and sen ate reconvene in regu-
lar session, it is the plan of the radi-
al silver men to keep the coinage
question well to the front at every
stage and it will be found playing a
part in the discussion of every great
issue between tho parties from the
ariff question to the repeal of the
federal election laws. They propose
at every stairc of the tariff discussion
to endeavor to show that the demone-
tization of silver and not the Melvin-
ley tariff was responsible for the com-
mercial depression. Propositions for
issue of bonds to * meet
the embarrassments of a depleted
treasury and, indeed every great
public question that comes before the
next congress for solution will find
opposed to its consideration a band of
silver men who will combat the ad-
justment of any and all grievances
until the cause of silver receives at-
tention. Indeed, the ultimate policy
may be that tho silver men may as-
sume the roll of organized obstruction
to force from congress the same con-
sideration for silver that Parnell and
his Irish followers finally wrested
from the British parliament for home
rule. Both parties aro fully aware of
this possibility an i are viewing with
increased anxiety. the successive
moves of those senators and repre-
sentatives who, as Po ulists, Repub-
licans or Democrats, have banded to-
gether in the struggle for free coinage
or an increased volume of currency.
To offset the accessions to the third
party's ranks in the South the sena-
tors and representatives from those
states are anxious to repeal the ten
per cent tax on state bank currency,
but here they are m"t with the oppo-
sition of Chairman Springer of the
house committee on banking and cur-
rency ami other leading Dsmoorats of
the North who do not share the South-
ern views upon this phase of the finan-
cial question. Altogether the absorbing
question of finance appears likely to
play almost as important a part in the
next session as it has in the past.
Refusal of the House to Agree to I\ y
Gi-Seniite Clerk* Causes Frlcliou*
Washington, Nov. 7.—The extra
session of congress adjourned leaving
a rather disagreeable feeling existing
between the senate and house.
This was in part duo to the
refusal of the house to extend the
time for adjournment but was and
is mainly over the proposition to
pay the clerks of senators during Oc-
tober qnd November, 1800. Tho sen-
ate claims tho right to regulate its
own internal affairs and expenditures
and accords the same right to the
house. It is cited that when the ser-
geant-at-arins of the house left with
875,000 really belonging to members,
and not actually government funds,
the house proposed and the senate
without objection agreed to an appro-
priation for the entire sum. When
the house proposed to pay its clerks
tho senate assented.
The senate claims that it contracted
the debt of 1890 and feels iu honor
bound to pay it, and the temper of the
senators at'the time of adjournment
was that this would bo paid before
any appropriations should be put
through this congress. On tho other
hand, the members of the house say
that the senate is t;ikinjf the attitude
of coercing tho house into making an
appropriation which it thinks unjust
and forcing the house to acknowledge
that the senate.had the right to make
tho expenditures or giving the house
the alternative of defeating all other
appropriations and starving the gov-

Washington, Nov. 7. — Hills have
now been reported from the house
committee on territories providing for
the admission of Arizona, New Mexico
and Utah, and there is now pending
the bill introduced by Delegate Flynn
for the admission of Oklahoma.
It is expected that there will be
something of a eoutest over this last
There are two fact ons in the Indian
territory interested in the admission.
One wants the Indian territory admit-
ted as a portion of the state of Okla-
homa, and another wants the section
now known as the Indian territory to
remain in its present condition. Del-
egate Flynn savs that it is of particu-
lar moment to him. If the people of
the Indian territory do not want to
come into the Union with Oklahoma
then lie wants Oklahoma admitted as
a separate state. Before leaving for
home he said he would press his bill
as soon as congress should reassem-
Speaking of the rights of Okla-
homa to statehood, Mr. Flynn said
that, there were in the Indian terri-
tory and Oklahoma 700,000 people,
but if Oklahoma should come in sep-
arately she would have a t opnla-
tion of 300,000, all of whom would be
first-class citizens, lie think . that it
would be a great injustice to the peo-
ple, of Oklahoma to ti nv them admis-
sion as a state when the territory has
the requisite populat ion and r esourCes

Madrid, Nov. 7.—The terrible dis-'
aster which has wrecked the port of
Sant Arftler and destroyed a thousand
lives has sent a thrill of horror
throughout Spain. The story of the
great disaster in brief is as follows:
The Cabo Macliiehaeo, a Spanish
steamship belonging to Bilboa. caught
fire at about 4 o'clock Friday after-
m while tho steamer was along the
quay discharging part of her cargo,
which comprised nearly 'j,000 tons of
merchandise, though the main part of
this cargo was iron ore and a number
of sacks of flour, barrels of wine, many
cases of petroleum and over 500 cases
of dynamite, of which only tweutv
cases were declared on the steamer's
manifest The remaining 480 cases
of dynamite were contraband and, to
the shame of j,he shippers of this con-
traband dyuamite, it has caused im-
mense loss of life and vast damage to
Leading municipal authorities head-
ed the firemen and gua.ds in the
effort to save the steamer. The
provincial governor, who was one of
tho first to reach the spot,displayed the
greatest activity in directing the oper-
ations; and upon learning that the
ship's manifest showed that there
were twenty cases of dynamite on
board* the firemen were directed to
assist the crow in bringing this quan-
tity of explosive material ashore.
This was done in safety. It was be-
lieved no more dynamite remained on
board and a tug which had been sum-
moned to the spot was ordered to tow
the burning vessel out into the bay in
order that the flames might not • >m-
municatc to tho wharf and to adjoin-
ing property, which was of a decided-
ly combustible nature.
At about 4:30 p m. a detonation on
board showed, as it afterwards turrted
out, that the boilers had burst, and
soon after there was another terrible
detonation heard. The steamer seemed
to open in half, sending a blaze of tire
skyward, over which a crowp of smoke
rested for several minutes. The re-
port was of such awful intensity that
it shook the earth for miles around,
caused houses to totter, smashed every
window pane within the radius of a
ritle shot, filled the air with a mass of
flying iron, burning? wood, blackened
timbers and scorched beams, which
soon after fell, a death dealing hail,
upon the neighboring houses, scatter-
ing death ami destruction wherever it
The scene following the blowing up
of the steamer is almost indescribable,
and the effect of the explosion of
those 480 eases will hardly be be-
The power of the explosion -shot
tons of iron iuto the air, whereitmin-
gled with the burning fragments of
the steamship, tug and wooden quay,
as well as the mangled bodies of hun-
dreds of unfortunate people who were
hurled upward at the same time, and
the failing of this horrible mass can
be better imagined than described.
On adjoining buildings, tottering with
wreckage9,fell a shower of iron,follow-
ed by huge pieces of wood and the re-
mains of human bodies, and above all
dropped flaming splinters which set
fire to hundreds of buildings, causing
a scene of panic similar, one would
imagine, to ttio one which would have
succeeded the bursting forth of a vol-
cano at the water's eilge.
The force of the exploding dyna-
mite traused such a concussion that in
addition to shaking hundreds of build-
ings off their foundations, it actually
sank a small craft in the harbor, in
addition to setthig tire to a large num-
ber of other vessels and starting fires
upon several of the larger ships, in-
cluding the Alfonso XI1, which vessel
caught fire and burned so fiercely that
forty of her crew lost their lives on
board of her.
The quay promenade close to the
scene of the explosion presen^pd the
most sickening sight ever witnessed
Mangled and blackened corpses were
scattered here and there or were in
heaps in many cases upon the wounded
and dying, whose fearful shrieks of
agony tilled the air and struck terror
into the hearts of those who, after a
time, summoned sufficient courage to
venture near the carnage ground.
Over 100 people are said to have
been precipitated into tha sea by* the
explosion and there, beneath this hail
of iron and wood, they met death with
the crews of the unfortunate steamer
and tugboat which was about to tow
her iuto the bay.
The whole country is indignant at
the criminal conduct of the crew < f
the steamer as well as the criminality
of those who shipped the contraband
480 cases of dynamite, and the general
opinion is the government must take
immediate steps to punish the people
who shipped the dynamite.
The explosion of the dynamite lifted
the sea Up into the air like a Water*
spout, mingling enormous quantities
of mud and stones with the wreckage
and hurling them for a great distance
on every side.
The number of people who have lost
their senses throQffb ti"' exp oslon is
very great, and it is openly asserted
hundreds of people have completely
lost their mhids and will have to be
confined in asylums f r the remainder
of their lives.
