principal witness ugalust him being his

alllrmed tho verdict, and tho case was
brought to tho Federal Supremo Court on
an appeal. In Its decision the Court says:
"Tho question presented is not how
much sho (tho wife) feels or Buffers, but'
whether tho crime Is 0110 against her.
Polygamy aud adultery may bo crimes
which Involve disloyalty to tho marital
relation, hut they are rather crimes
against such relations than against tho
wife, aud as tho statute (under which the
man was convicted) speaks of crimes
against her, It Is (.Imply an alllrmatlnti of
tho old common-law rule. Wo conclude,
therefore, that under this statute tho wife
was an iucomctcnt witness against Iter

It was not many years ago that Hughes
and Campbell were in partnership, ami
they occupied a dingy little olllco at 3.

dingy little olllce with them, or, if it did
not, too men wuo assumed ine iiiuctious

Tho proof of tho forgeries is unquestion

procuring of tlio counterfeited seul is posi

disclosure of tho fact that the divorce.

at Its height, Mr. Hughes was Interviewed
by reKrtcrs and asserted lsvdtlvely that
tho firm of Hughes it Campbell had not
been engnged in any divorce suit, and
knew nothing nbrmi any divorce that Mr.
Pendleton might have. That statement
ruined Pendleton financially aud ihj

comes from tho Finance Committee.
Whether or not this can ho accomplished
remains to ho seen.
It Is understood that the proiioscd new
cloture rule will not be brought forward
until after the financial measure has been
discussed for some time, and will only bo
pressed then in casotlie Democrats display
the sumo persistency nnd prolixity in its

A prominent Republican Senator, be
lieved to be opjioscd to the proposed
cloture rttlo, when asked how the chango
could bo effected, said:
"lly having a man lu thochair who will
only recognize 0110 man, thu mover of the
rule, and who will order tho roll called lu
splto of tho protests and points of order of
tho ojqiositiou. Then, with u majority of
the Scnato voting for the now rule, he will
declare it carried and have It so entered
on the, journal. Would this bo revolu
tionary? Yes, It would; and only justifi
able, if justlilablo at all, lu a very grave
Now, who will occupy tho cha'r and
carry out thu caucus behests? Vice-President
Morton has declined, and so has
President pro temjxtre Iiigalls.
When at tho last caucus this ohit was
discussed Senator Georgo V, Kdinuuls, It
is said, remarked that if it was thu wish
of tho caucus that ho should occupy tho
chair in such an emergency for thopur
jkjso of carrying cloture ho would do it.
All this gives point to certain whisper
ings at tho Capitol to-day that there is 11
quiet movement on foot nniong tho friends
of cloture to deKiso Mr. Digitus from his
iiohiiion as iresiuent pro icmimrt. ir. will
bo recollected that tho resolution under
which ho was elected made him President
pro taiort only until Ids successor should
ho elected. With Mr. Ingalls away for
two weeks he left for Kansas yesterday
uiupiuu is 10 iiiivu nr. -vionou nixont
himself for nt least 011a dav. This would
liectssitato the election of 11 new President
pro Imiimt and would enable the cloture
lolks, tt in 11 clear majority, to displace,
Ingalls aud replace him with Kihniuiits,
who appears to bo in tho humor toald in
bringing about tho chango lu tho rules.
Another Republican Senator, who Is not
ardently favorable to cloture, und is be
lieved to be opposed to tho Klectious bill,
"Why don't Its advocates bring tho
Klectious bill to a vote? They can do it
easily enough, if they will simply forego
thu pleasures of tho table at a certain hour
ev cry day for a time or two. All they've
got to do is lo sit right on continuously
until they reach a vote. They liavo no
right to insist on a chango of the rules for
thu nitre purpose of enabling them to go
home lo dlno comfortably. Let them
stand up to tho rack llko men and they
can get a vote on their measure, and either
puss It or see It defeated."
Tho cloture rule which will jiass, if any
pass, will be limited to the short sessions.
It will not apply to the long sessions, ex
cept as Hie know ledgo of Its existenco nets
usiiperpttual hint not to waste time.
It Is claimed lu certain quarters that all
the new Senators, or rather the Senators
from tho new States, have been brought
to favor cloture and the Klectious bill
both, by tho pertinacious and prolonged
opposition of the Deinocrntlu Senators to
thu hill in question. These Senators have
a good deal of business which thov want
done at this session, and they are con
vinced, It is said, that tho only way in
which they can accomplish this is to
change thu rules and -ias tho Klectious
bill so as to get It out of tho way. Tho
claim is also niuilo thut tlio Idaho Sena
tors will vote for cloture, and that when
thoy arrive there will ho a clc.irniajnritv
In favor of it. It is not thought tho
chango will bo pressed before their ar
rival. The ro-enforcenicnt of these two votes
Is needed, because the situation Is very
much muddled just now. There are Re
publican Senators fuvorabloto tho Klec
tious hill who are optsjscd to cloture, aud
soiuo favorablo to cloture who are op
posed to the bill, whllo 0110 or two are op
posed to both tho hill and cloture. Tho
silver question mixes Itself up with both
the others nnd amalgamates with neither.
Mr. Aidrieh, who has thbeloturo propo
sition in his keeping, savs ho thinks it
will bo adopted, but that ho is not so cer
tain that that will help tho Klectious bill.
Well, If It won't help the Klectious bill
Messrs. Hoar, Spooner it Co. will speedily
lose Interest In cloture.
Altogether the situation Is most delight
fully tangled, and tho unraveling thereof
promises some very pretty surprises.
