ELECTIONS BILL BEAD.
KINO CAUCUS LAST NK1HT HIX'REHI)
Senators Hoar, Allison and Sponner Y"
trrday Admitted That tiHIdotrn'k It
Wns to Doom It to Death Oilier
Action Taken by the C.uiciis.
The Federal Elections bill Is deid.
King Caucus has decreed IU decapita
tion. This morning the Republican Senators,
privately, and In their Individual capaci
ties, acknowledged that tlio action of their
caucus last night, in deciding tolaynstdo
tho Dlecllons bill for tho purpose ot con
sidering and acting upon a general llnauclal
measure, permanently sldo tracks the
former measure, which has been under
discussion so many days. This la strictly
Inlieeordaucc with tho views set forth hi
The Critio last Tuesday.
Mr. Hoar himself acknowledged yester
day afternoon that if by any maneiivro
tho Elections bill should nt this tlmo bo
set nside for tho consideration of any
other measure whatsoever it could not bo
taken up again In time to he adopted, no
matter how much the majority might
want to do so.
Senators Allison nndSpooner, who, after
Mr. Hoar, arc the chief Senatorial sup
porters of tho Klectlons bill, coincided
with tho Massachusetts statesman In this
view. All three held that for the Klec
tlons bill to become a law It must be made
the paramount issue in' Congress, ami that
if nny other meiLsurbbo given tlio precc
dence.it would be shorn of its Importance.
Again all three gentlemen Joined In (he
opinion that if n llnauclal bill was taken
nil tn tho displacement of tho Klectlons
bill the Democrats would so prolong the
debute on that measure as to make It im
possible to complete the discussion of tlio
Klectlons bill beforetho-lth of next March,
even though soino of tho appropriation
hills were sacrificed nnd au extra session
made n necessity. Thu Democrats would
make tho debato on tho llnauclal bill last
as long as tiosslblc, nud they would then
light (he cloture rule to tho cud of the
session before they would permit the
Klections bill to conio to a vote.
In a word, tho honest, private opinion
of tlio friends of the Federal Klectlons bill
Is that the action of last night's caucus
simply suggests an easy way of dropping
a measure which has beenmo Impossible
and Icttlngdown easy tho Administration,
wnosc principal issue it lias iiecn, ami
which has sought in every way to maku
It the shibboleth of Republicanism.
Tho caucus also decided that the Sennto
would not take a holiday recess. There
Is going to bo some fun in the
House over this determination. The
vote of last Monday preliminary to a
posltlvo expression on the question of a
holiday recess plainly indicated that a
lurgo majority of tlio Houso would Insist
upon an adjournment for at least a longer
period than the Constitution provides that
cither house may take, without the con
sent of tho other, three days.
The Sennto may refuse to take n holiday
and the niembersof the House may refuse
to stay here in snlllclent numbers to con
stitute a quorum, yet the minority can
constantly rnlsetlio point of "no quorum,"
and prevent nil adjournment from day to
day and bring about a call of tlio House,
which will loreo anseui. mcniucrs in re
turn and make the holidays no vacation
nt all for those who ure determined to re
sent the action of tho Republican Sena
torial caucus in refusing n recess.
Tho Republicans in the House want the
Klectlons bill passed, and they are es
pecially in favor of a cloture rulo in tlio
Senate. They are anxious for Jho adop
tion 6f n llnauclal bill. A hirg majority,
however, are considerably irritated over
tho slowness of tho Senate upon these
propositions, and its demeanor and dispo
sition generally. Willie the Houso'ls left
to adopt forcible means for the adoption
of party measures, tlio Senate clings to Its
traditions of "unlimited debate," "Sena
torial courtesy," anil all thatsortof thing,
much, to the ligust of the festive mem
ber of tlio Houso from tho "Wild and
Woolly West." It is more than likely
that thepartisan RepublicansintheHoue
will take this occasion to administer a re
buke to the conservative Republicans lu
tlio Senate, but no one can foretell just
what step they will llrst take to bring
about their purpose.
Of courso tho Houso can adjourn for
three days and then tlio few in tlio city
meet and adjourn for another three davs,
and so on until after New Year's, hut the
majority jut now is not in the temper to
liagcllate his Satanic majesty about the
fallen timber In this fashion.
The financial measure determined upon
was substantially as set out lu Tin: Critic
last Tuesday. Tho main features arc the
purchaso of tho 12,000,000 ounces of sur
plus silver, tho reduction of tho compul
sory requirement of bond deposits by na
tional bunks, tho extension of tho national
bank circulation to the full amount of
their bond deposits, tho replacement of
tl.o deficiency in national bank clreula
km below 1H.000,000 by Treasury notes
bated on silver bullion purchases, tho pro
vision for free coinage when sliver Is
nialntaliHsl at par fur ono year, the pro
v Won for a charge on the conversion of
told coin Into bins, and tho recolnago of
trade dollars ami subsidiary silver coins.
The caucus committee wivs directed to
perfect the form of thu bill nud turn It
over to tho Senate Finance Committer,
which Is expected to repoit It at uti early
Tho Committee on Rules was Instructed
to report n rule forarrlviugat the previous
question, or, in other words, the compul
sory closing of debate, known lu theso
latter days ns cloture or closure. It will
probably bo framed on the lines of tho
rules promised at tho last session by Mr.
Hoar, which were to cloo debate after a
"reasonable" time. This contemplated
change in tlio rules is not to bo reported
until after tho Financial bill has been
brought into the Semito by tho Finance

Day, tho Rochester wlfo murderer, was
hanged nt 8.01 o'clock this morning. Tho
condemned man spent his last night on
earth in writing letters to his relatives anil
singing gospel hymns, his favorite selec
tions being "Scatter Seeds of Kindness"
nnd "On the Way from Karth to Heaven
I Will (Initio Then with Mlno Kyo." Thero
was a tremor In his voice as he sang, and,
so far as his sltuited moral nnttiro would
nllow, ho wns deeply affected. Ho did not
sleep more than hnlf an hour nil night.
Tho letters which he sent to his brothers
contained nu"ectionato greetings ami an
exhortation to lead n better life.
Up to tho last ho juisslonutcly blamol
his sister, who, ho clalmeil, was tlio ono
who planned tho visit from Rochester to
the river. Ho would not admit having
actually pushed his wlfo over the bank,
but his denial was not emphatic, nud It l.s
generally believed that ho carried out to
the letter the arrangements which his sis
Rev. Mr. McCtialg left him nt fl o'clock
yesterday afternoon and returned at I
o'clock this morning. Ho and the con
demned man then engaged In earnest
prayer, and tho latter listened and took
part with evident sincerity. At 7 o'clock
he resumed the slnglngof liymns.

of colTce, toast, broiled chicken nnd
Tho death warrant was then read tn the!

to the rude structure from which he was
to bo launched into eternity. There wns
no delay or hitch of any kind. Promptly
nt 8 o'clock, or jierhaps u minute or two
before, tho minister said the last consol
ing words. Day was placed directly in
tlio centre of the scaffold. Ho bore him

jicaraiico was tho least nlTocted nnd moot
jaunty of thoo assembled.
After calmly surveying tho crowd of
spectators, which numbered several hun
dred, be shook hands In turn witli tho
jailer, sheriff and minister, and simply
said good-bye. The hangman quickly ad
justed tho strap on his legs, the black can
was pulled down, and tho fatal nooso ad

Lord's Prayer, nnd ns tho words "deliver
us from evil" were uttered, nt n sign from

He came down with another great Jerk,
and, after a few spasmodic convulsion's,
lusting only a minute nud n-half, tho
body hung motionless in the air. Dr.
Smith plated ids bund on tho pulse and in
ten minutes he declared the pulse to havo
stopped beating. After twenty minutes
had elapsed hu wus cut down ami thu

clared tho neck uiihiokcu and that death
wus produced by strangulation. An in
quest will bo held nt noon.

They crossed to tho Canadian side and
proi ceded along the bank in the direction
of the whirlpool.
Mrs. (Jiilgfey sat down to rest and Day
and his wife continued their walk. Thu

her. Day and his sister tlicn returned to
Rochester and the body of tho murdered
wife wns not found until two weeks later.
Day was troubled with horrible night
mares alter his crhi,o and frequently
started up lu his sleep, screaming: 'There
sho goes, down, down, 1 seoiier. My

that her husband's iiunio was Day, and
that ho wassupjHiscd to havo a wile liv
ing, sho put thu case In thu hands of thu
pollco and told her story. Search was
