Second That the consideration of all

Third That tho vole on tho Tariff bill
and the amendments thereto shall be taken
on tho 50th of August, at 3 o'clock p. m.,
without further dobate, until tho considera
tion of tho Mil and amendments bo com
pleted. Unquestionably Senator Quay Is act
ing, not for himself nlonc, but for a
number of Republican Senators, who
ore cither unalterably opposed to tho
Forco bill or profoundly Indifferent
thereto. Among tho first class aro
Senators- Camoron, Plumb, Wolcott
nnd others. In tho latter class are Sen
ators Washburn, McMillan, Mitchell
nnd others. These latter might be
brought to vote for tho bill under stress
of party discipline, but In noothor con
tingency. This morning, on tho motion of San
ntor Aldrlch, chairman of tho Commit
tee on littles, all the resolutions looking
to a chango In tho rules, or Intended to
icgulatu tho order of business for the
test of tho session, wero referred
to tho Committee on Rules.
Thcso nre Benator Blair's, Senator
Hoar's, Senator Edmunds' and Senator
Quay's. Senator Hoar moved an amend
ment to Quay's resolution to Include In
tho bill to bo considered the Federal
Elections bill. This action fell some
thing LIKE A WKT M.ANKRT
upon tho Democratic Senators and those
Republicans opposed to tho passage of
tho Force bill.
The Committee on Rules la com
posed, besides Mr. Aldrlch. chairman,
ot Messrs. Sherman and Inealls. Re-
publicans, and Harris and Blackburn.
Democrats, It Is both asserted and
denied that the Republican members of
the committee aw In favor of the Quay
resolution pure and simple without the
Hoar amendment. Undoubtedly Mr.
Aldrlch, If compelled to choose between
tho Tariff and the Force bills, would
let the latter be deferred until
next December to allow the
former to go through. He
Is worried over the delay of the Tariff
LIU, and in that lies the chance for a
compromise which will throw the Force
bill over until next winter. It is also
claimed that Sherman and Ingalla favor
the Quay resolution. This is also de
nied. A CAUCUS
of the Republican Senators will be
called, may be for to-night, certainly
very soon. Until that Is held the Com
mittee on Rules will hardly make a
report on any of the buneh of resolu
tions now before It. Nor will auythlne:
definite be known as to the course the
Republicans will pursue In regard to
the Force bill. Sir. Quay's Idea is that
Congress should pass the Tariff bill
and adjourn. This woukl enable the
Republican candidates for Congress la
close districts to go hone and mak
their contests. If this be sot dose, b
fears enough of these close district)
would be lost to give the House to thi
Democrats, in spite of Federal electlo i
laws, even If supplemented by
A HBArrOKTIOKMBKT LAW.
The Democrats are a little fearful of
a parliamentary trick if the Quay reso
lution be adopted. Some of them, tak
ing counsel of tbelr fears, say that to
vote on the Tariff bill oa August 30
would only result, practically, in call
ing up the Force bill a month earlier
than it would be possible to get It up
under the present rules and eoadltioaa.
However, should the Committee ok
Rules report favorably the Quay reso
lution, the Democrats will vote for It
and take chances oa the Republican
combining to vacate it or ignore it
doe thing is certain If the Quay
resolution U the result of an ujumtasaml
ing it Is only between Individual Sena
tors on each side and not between the
parties themselves. Senator Quay U

Nrw York, Aug. 18.- The JYnws
today sys editorially: "It Is a matter
of some significance that Mr. (limy
comes forward with a proposition for
petting the Tariff bill to a vote on the
80th of August, which In Its terms ex
cludes the Force bill from considera
tion at the present session. It Is as
sumed that he offered his resolution
yesterday after some sort of hn under
standing with leading Democratic Sen
ators, and that tt depends for support
mainly upon the Democrats.
"It would nfford a means ot letltiig
the Republicans out of a tangle which
seems to lie growing worse every day,
and of relieving Democrats from all
apprehension on account of tho Force
bill. It Is rather a curious position for
Mr. Quay to appear as tho fathor of a
proposition Intended to recelvo tho sup
port of most, If not all, of the Demo
cratic Senators, nnd of only a minority
of those on llio Republican side.
"It is significant of tho estimation In
which he Is held by his associates that
his coming forward with any proposition
at all Is resented by some of them, and
that rercntment Is not likely to be
lessened by the fact that his proposition
Is distasteful to most of his own party
and acceptable to the Democrats. Kvl

Mr. Tillman then concludes his letter

Secretary Hayes arrived last night ami
was in a mood to crush somebody when
a reporter called at his hotel this morn

before the Iward.
Mr. Powderlv was slightly more ap
proachable, lie said the business to be
tiansacted was largely routine. The
status of tho New York Central strike
was a question on which he could offer
nothing, reiterating his previous ex
piesslon, that It was the exclusive busi
ness of the executive board of the Dis
trict Assembly to which the New York
Central lines "belong, and with which
ho has nothing to do. The present
status of the strike was a mntter on
which he refused to express an opinion.
J. J. Holland, tho member of the
general executive board who has had

here, hut has no views. Ha says ho
will prccnt tho whole matter to the ex

The committee charged with tho ar

of Congregatlonalfsls, of which Mr.
Henry Leo of .Manchester Is chairman,
has practically settled that the council
will assemble In London, on Mouthy,
July 13, 1S01. and that special services
will be held on the prevluus day. The
meetings will probably be extended
over bundny, tho 10th. The council
itself will be of a deliberative, rather
than of r popular character. Large
public meetings are to be held In con
nection with It, and It is also hoped that
practicable arrangements will be made
for the occupation of leading pulpits In
London and tho country by representa

Colonies and elsewhere. One hundred

With every hour the gravity of the
position created by the great railroad
strike in Wales increases. Last even

of the municipal authorities of Cardiff.
Thu response to the call has been
prompt, and during the entire night
officers have been Hocking into the
city. The military are also under arms
and are perfecting arrangements to pro
tect the railroad property and to enable
the officials to run their trains. As
yet, however, no overt act has been
committed by the strikers.

Dr. Elliott Coues, the omlnonl Wash
ington scientist and theosophht, who
recently obtained considerable no'.o
rlcly by bis attacks upon Mmo. B!a
valsky nnd the Theosophlcal Society.
Is again the subject of a discussion, and
Mr. William I. Judge of New York has
nnswored Dr. Coues by publishing a
number of letters written by him and
It appears that "on Juno 10,1880,
charges of iinlbcosophtcal conduct
were preferred against Dr. Coues by a
number of tbo Boston T. S , nnd on
June 22d tho executive committee of tho
Amcilcan Section considered thorn,
found him guilty, ond, by a unani
mous vote, expelled htm from the
Thcoeophlcal Society. These charges
wcro bated upon Ills Icttors to tho
Journal and upon personal loiters at
tacking nnd ridiculing the society and
Its work. Since his expulsion from tho
soclely Dr. Couos has repeatodly at
tacked It In print, and In the article In
the New York Sun of July 30, as well
ns i huwhere, has asserted that ho long

ows "First. That be remained a mombcr
of tho roclety though convinced of Its

as president of the Gnostic Branch in
spile of that conviction.
"Third. That he wrote to Madame
Blavatnky bU assurances ot respect and
esteem for her, although knowing her
to bo unworthy ot either.
"Fourth. That he never voluntarily
withdrew from either the Society or
the Branch presidency, but was ex
pelled from the former and lost the
latter by the revocation of the Branch
"Fifth. That certain letters signed
"F. T. S.." and unmistakably by him.
publUhed after bis expulsion anil much
after the convictions he claims to have
reached as to fraud, nevertheless claim
his continued membership In the Theo
"And from all the above the conse
quence seems Inevitable, that Dr. Coues'
Inutility to Madame Blavatsky and the
Theosophlcal Society springs from his
failure to be made president of the
American Hecllon and from his Igno
minious expulsion from the society It
self." Such are the charges preferred by Mr.
Judge and In support of them be
draws liberally on Dr. Coues' letters.
The first letter rrom tir. uouea was
sent on Christmas day, 1B66, and ad
dressed to Muie. Blavatskv. It over
THK Mil K OK HUMAN KINDKEtS,
and at its head has an "embossed device
adapted from emblem on the path."
He says: "The compliments of the
Christian season to the moat magnifi
cent heathen and greatest woman on
earth, the Lady Blavatsky, from her
humble admirer' So the i4ert Doe

a secret but, do you know, 1 have yet

Thea be pathetically inqulr "Is

love to him ami say, I doa't get up very
early, but I atay up very late. I am
glad you made it all right with your
psychologized baby Oicott, whea he

That must have tickled the "meek

sky replied to Dr. Coues, and her let
ter, to put it mildly, must have made
the ltatned Professor feel very cheap.
Soys she: "No one has talked to me

anything of it therefore I could not
bo misinformed. It may bo 'unques
tionably the leading branch of the T.
S.' In America. But as I never hoard of

me atd declined. Some of your best
ftlcmls did so If you want to know.
This Is why I washed my hands of the
whole thing and cot nmd with Judge
and you for putting me In such a pwl
lion' But the manner in which she
tquelchcd Dr. Coues' presidential upl
for Blavatsky does not mince matters at
all. Here Is the iiaragraph from her
"As to the Ksoterlc T. S. which you
proiwsctl should consist of yourself.
Judge and me, 1 considered It at an end
the moment the whole thing fell
