DIRTY LINEN TO BE PRIVATELY WASHED
Explanation as to Why the Quay
Resolution Was Not tolled Up.
WHAT A DEMOCRATIC SENATOR SAYS.
Interesting Gossip of the Situation Generally-Lwh
I A goodly audience had gathered In
Uio Senate Cbntnbor this morning to
listen to tho continuance of the debate
on tbe Quay resolution, lint that cele
brated resole was pot beard from. Sena
tor Plumb's resolution, concerning tbe
Bale of liquors, wines and beers In tbe
Senate restaurant was discussed, but
not acted on. Ills resolution concern
ing tbe cbarges arjalnst Lieutenant
Guy was ndoDtcd. This braco of
resolves and Mr. Quay'8 wcro Intro
duced on tbe same d ay, Tho specta
tors, particularly tbe correspondents
who tlironpcd tbe press gallery, fairly
held tbclr brcatb as tbe President pro
(emjxjre announced the adoption of tbo
Guy resolution. Nothing could now
interfere wllb tho calling up of tbo
Quay resolution. At least, so tho spec
But at this moment Senator Quay,
clad In a scdato gray suit, and serene as
a May morning, emerged from tho ob
scurity of bis scat within the shadow
of tbo cortb gallery, passed to tbo open
space In front of the presiding ofllcer,
walked down tbo main aisle, crossed
ovu to Mr Aldrlcb, Mid something to
Mm tied disappeared within the Itcpub
Mr Aldrlcb rose and said that I
there were no further business to be
transacted In tho morning hour he would
call the Tariff bill up.
It was not yet 11 o'clock. What did
this move moau? Why was not In
Quay resolution called up? These wcr
tbo questions which sprang quietly to
tbe lips of tbe correspondents, who wore
slightly dazed by the turn uuttors bad
"It means that Quay is beaten." said
the pro Force men.
But It doesn't mean anything of tbo
bind. It means simply that tbe Repub
lican leaders bare come to their senses
far enough to realize the folly of wash
ing their dirty llnun In public. They
hare consequently determined to settle
the points luvolved In the Quay resolu
tion In tecrct conference and to put a
stop to unseemly wrangling among
themselves In open Senate.
This movement began yesterday, and
was precipitated by tbe fiery speech of
It Is In effect to modify ths Quay res
olution by Including in It the Force bill,
that measure to be set for a day certain
la December next, ami the previous
question be ordered en another day
No doubt this compromise will be
agreed to by a large majority of the Re
publican Senators and will, perhaps,
Lie accepted by all. Its adoption will
be facilitated by the absence of Sen
ator Edmunds, who to day left to lie
gone a week, having obtained leave
But can this com promise get through
tbe Senate There's the rub. The
Democrats can delay the passage of this
compromise resolution as readily as tbe
passage of the Force bill Itself. Mr.
F rye's assertion in bis speech yesterday
that tbe Republican Senators coukl, by
meeting at 10 o'clock Is lb morals
and sitting until 6 in tbe evening aid
iheu lemaiaing all sight If necessary,
change tbe rules to provide tV
tbe previous riueetloa, is reckoning
without the Democrats. Potty thre:
BepublU ana would have to be la thel
eeais i onstanlly, The Democrats would
only need to keep ive or six men there,
tue rest could indulge ia "nature's
sweet restorer" to tbelr bodies content
They could keep it up ladeaaitely.
Tbe plain fact U that th Republicans
are in a Lad way, and nobody knows
belter than they. They are divided on
tbe justice and tbe expediency of the
Force bill. Tbey at divided oa the
questloa of changing the Bwiitir rates.

Nrw York, Aug. 21. A special to
tbe IlmtUl from A''atita, Ga.. says The
State Alliance Convention has devel
oped a sensation here in tbe investiga
tion which is going on ot one of the
biggest Alliance men In Georgia, Felix
Corput, of Rome, ex president of tbe
Slate Alliance Exchange. In a speech
before tbe convention Corput denied
tbe truth of tbe cbarges. As he did so,
another delegate read an atodavlt ot a
prominent stockman, which dealt with
transactions that Corput bad while
president of tbt exchange, aud tended
to show that Corput was looking out for
a percentage fur himself. A similar
charge grows out of tbe transactions
with a Baltimore guwo firm. These
amdavils, it Is said, were the direct
cause ot Corput's resigning the ex
change presidency, which he did so
lime ago. At that tine there were
rumors of crookedness, but ho fuels
could be learned. A committee Is In

Sargent of the Federation of lUllway
Employes late last night mmle the fol
"I am now firmly convinced that Mr.
Powderly ami the Knights f Ulwr
have acted in an upright and honor
able manner, ami that they have don
everything possible to bring about a
settlement of this dispute by trying
their utmost to have the milter settled
by arbitration, and tbey have failed
through Mr. Webb's refusal to allow It
to be arbitrated. Tbe result, so far as I
am concerned, is that I have decided to
convene the Supreme Council of thc
Federation, and I have already Issued a
call to that effect.
"Tho Supreme Council will meet In
Tcrrc Haute, Ind., our headquatters. at
10 o'clock In the morning next Satur
day, and I shall submit the whole mat
ter to them for consideration and action.
Thc additional member of the council,
wlta whom I have just communicated
by telegraph, are Eugene V. Debt of
Icrre Haute, grand secretary and as
sistant treasurer of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Firemen; J J. Hannahan
of Chicago, vice grand master of the
Brotherhood of locomotive Firemen,
William Sheehan of Calesbnrg.

Aid Association; George Lavlgny of
Terre Haute, assistant grand chief
Conductor of tho Hrotherhood of Itatl
way Conductors, and James Carr of
Kansas City, assistant grand con
ductor ot the Brotherhood ot ltallroad
"I shall lay before tbe council all
that I have observed and beard con
cerning tbe origin cf tbe strike while I
bate been in the city and elsewhere
and shall let the council deride upon
tbe action to be taken. What action
do I think tbe counril will take? Tbtt
is a matter I cannot dl'cuss. Tbe
Knights have appealed to us for sup
twit and I have gleaned all tbe infor
mation I can upon tbe subject, it it for
tbe council to pass Judgment, but I
may say that the potltlon taken by
ihe executive board of tbe Knights of
Labor baa my entire sympathy. I take
tbe position that tbe Knights have ex
hausted all means to bring about a
peaceful settlement of tbe affair and
that Mr. Powderly baa only been able
to bear one side that of tbe men tbe
railroad having refused to arbitrate tbe
matter prevents him from beating the
other side. Tbe railroad refuses all
other meant ot settlement."
GATHERU.O Of THE LEAD!.
Tbe members of tbe General Execu
tive Board ot tbe KnlgbU of Labor did
not make tbelr appearance at the St
Cloud Hotel until late this morning.
Chief Sargent, with hit companions,
Messrs. Howard. Wtlklasoa, and
Sweeney, were astir early, and at 7 30
left the hotel to take a train for Terre
Haute Chief Sargent said this morn
ing that at tbe meeting ot tbe Supreme
Council of tbe Federation which would
be held al Terre Haute oa Saturday a
strike on tbe Vanueudlt system would
undoubtedly be ordered. He aad his
tnree companions bad indorsed the ac
tion of tbe General Executive Board of
' he K nights ot Labor, And be thoroughly
believed that tbe Supreme Council of
ibe Federation would sustain tbem. He
tatd that the action of Mr. Webb last
night la adhering ao nrmly to the sited
he bad taken rendered the actio they
bad lake necessary. Mr. Webb's arbi
trary methods aad utter refusal to arbi
trate tbe situation made It useless to
deal with him any longer.
At 0 3" Mr. Powderly said that he
wcukt have nothing to say for several
Later becreiary Hayes of the Keights
of Labor stated that Mr Powderly 'sad

that the hot head ia tbe Federation

Mr Voorhees stated that everything
