TIIK ADJIirUXMENT QUESTION.
The Somite Tariff I III I tlio Only Obstnclo
In t b IVny.
The only obstnclo that has appeared during
the past week to uu adjournment of Congress
within tho next three or four days has been
the work upon nn analysis of tho Republican
Turin bill, which Is beliic made under the di
rection of the clerk of tho llouso Commltteo
ou Wa s and Meuus. That work will termi
nate ou Tuesday, and It Is stated thai tho
members of the committed now In tho city will
be willing to propose nil ifdjourumcut as soon
r.8 they receive this analysis. Tho proposition
for an adjournment will bo acted tipou at any
time by tlio Senate, Inasmuch as there aroonly
live or six speeches ou tlio ijirltT to ho deliv
ered befo e the election nnd these can bo com
pleted at any time within forty-eight hours'
Republican Members of tho Sena'o say they
can bo persuaded to do almost anything In the
direction of an adjournment, but thoy can
not 1h forced ti do unj thing. They would be
willing to propose uu adjournment were It not
for the fact that an old custom nnd tho un
written rules of Congress provide that tho
proposition for an adjournment sine dlo shall
cotno from tho House. They steadily refuse
to llx u day for adjournment until some step
has been taken by the Lower House. Thrco
oi four members of tho Commltteo on Finance
were at work lu their mora when s Tost re
porter entered and Inquired as to when ad
journment would be likely. Thoy all an
swerod that everything depended on the
House, and that tho Seunto was watting for
the customary proposition from the other
body of Congress.
When it was suggested that possibly the
House would not bo willing for an adjourn
ment, It was stated that if this was to be a
game of "frcere-out'.'ltho Senate would un
doubtedly win, because the declaration at any
time on tho part of the Senate that there Is a
wunt of a quorum would make adjournment
impossible under tho rules till a quorum was
secured, and It the llouso wanted to do con
trary about It, It would only boncccsbary for a
Republican Senator to ralso tho polut of "no
quorum" and to demand a call of tho Sen
ate, when It would bo disclosed that there was
less than a quorum In tho city.
It was further suggested that If the House
attempted to drive tho Sennto to proposing an
adjournment outside of tho ordinary. rules and
uanges n Kioto would bomado which would
rceal the fact that there was not a quorum In
the city, after which by mutual understanding
all of tho Senators except oqo would leave tho
city. A single Senator ou the floor, with the
presiding officer In tho chair, could keep up
tho pretense of u session. This would, Indeed,
te a remarkable condition of Congressional af
fairs, but It is not at all without tho rangn of a
possibility in the event tho House continues to
insist that tho Senate must proposo an ad
journment. Senators Allison, Ilawlcy, Hoar and Ald
rlcli and a number of tho Democratic side of
t a Chamber have expressed opinions to
day to Post representatives that there
would bo an adjournment between Wednes
day nnd Saturday of this wcok, notwithstand

THE BENET fllRCUIiAK.
A Dlsncreeublo Iloeument for Which
Democrats Are Said tn he Responsible.
There arc somo Indications, says the Boston
Herald's corresponded, that tho whole
rumpus over this circular Is a carefully-worked
up scheme, originating with certain disaffected
Democrats, and helped out by something that
Is very much )lkp fraud. Tlio ostensible ex
cusoTof the publication of tho circular la tho
statotnent of a man named Kllery that certain
women of his family have been discharged
from ono of tho arsenals for political reasons,
und tho reason given to them for their dis
charge Is that General Beuot had so directed in
a confidential circular.
There aro only two arsenals at which women
nre employed Frnukford Arsenal, near Phila
delphia, and Rock Island Arsenal, Illluols.
At tho Fraukford Arsenal there havo been no
discharges of women or children whatever,
and consequently tho only place to which the
en so as stated could possibly refer Is tho Rock
Island Arsenal; but It also appears that at
Rock Island the women are employed for a
few weeks at a time, at different periods of
tho year, and that at tho date of the alleged
oceurrcuco no women whatever wero then on
tho pay-rolls there. It has also been ascer
tained that the circular has never been shown
or rcforrcd to by any of tho persons in whoso
possession It Is, but tho existence of this cir
cular was known to certain spoils-hunting
Democratic politicians, who aro now angry nt
Secretary Kudicott because he would not dis
charge more Republicans and appoint their

A repicsentative of thoTulcjiapli, who

"How did jou find things lu Michigan?"

Thu other faction, tho Standing Hock Sioux,
headed by John (irassu uud Silting Hull met at

a long nddress which seemed to tie favorably
received, llo favors accepting tlio terms of
tho Government with nil amendment mi ns to
lncrejsu tho prlcoof tho laud relinquished to
the amount paid by tho settlers. The other
mcmhcis of his faction, for thu most pait,
think tlio same way; hut the Rosebud and
Who Ridge chiefs ore opposed to doing niiy
thlug nt all. Swift Hear In bis speech before
tho 'Ihlrd-strcct faction said that the tonus of
the bill making tho relinquishment of tho
laud had never been fully explained lo his
people directly; that the members of thu
.Sioux Commission had never Uslted his
agency, nud that occordltiKlv ho was opposed
to doing nti)thlng ut all' Just now. His

At night several pow-wows wcro held by the

About 6lxty members of tho delegation as

Standing Rock delegation, incfudluir Slltlug

Grasso Is tho most Intelligent looklug of the
party. He Is the couusolor of tho tribe, the attorney-general
as It wero Chief Gall Is tho
General Grant of tho Sioux Nation. It wns he
who led thu forces of tho ludlnus In the Custer
massacre aud ho couducted tho wholo cam
paign of that fatal war. Ho la, however, tho
least feroclous-looklng of tho wholo crew aud
Is said uot to bo a savage or cruel man. Sitting
Hull Is fat nud lias rather n besotted look. Ho
Is contemptuously called by some of tho tribe
as "Old Miss I.aiy-Ilear."
Seciclnry Vilas canto In about 10:30, accom
nauled by Indian Commissioner Oberly, Judgo
Montgomery and tho members of tho Sioux
Commission Captain l'ratt, Judgo Wright
and Rev. Dr. Cleveland.
Sccretury Vilas said: "My friends, I am
glad to seo jou this mornlug and see that jou
look well. I have arranged so that you can
stato to-day what jou wish to say lo mo In re

This was transtnt'il by the Interpreter.
Sitting Hull then tain; "I ,-.H wish lo

John Grasse then shook hands nil mound

talk upon tho bill which has been presented to
us. All my friends know I nocr Intended to
object to that bill on thu whole. I considered
tbe bill wbou It was presented to mo carefully
and Intelligently aud explained It to tho people.
The flist thing I want to mention is tho treaty
of 150$. Wo pray that tho provisions of this
treaty may bo carried out. 1 also wish to call
attention to thu lllack Hills treaty of '7tl, and
tho boundary Ilue6. 'Iho commissioners of
that treatj mentioned the boundary lines by

what I hear I remember. Why aro tho prom

He then described the boundary lines of tho
rescivatlous accordlug to tho treaties, and
produced a map, and enid that the truo bound
aries of their landb should extend further than
was laid out on tho map. Ho demanded In a
solemn ninuucr to know who had changed tho
boundaries; by whoso authority wus It done?
Here Grasso pmscd In Ids address and held a
low conversation with White Swan, of tho
"'Iheso 11.000.000 of acies of our laud," ho
continued, 'which jou propose to open to

Referring to tho allotment of land in sever

"Iho reason wo are backward about signing

White Swan of the Choycuno lllver agency
was tho next speaker. Ho said his pooplo wore
more Interested than any of the other tilbes In
tho opening of tho reservation, but they weio
not nblo to take their Jund In severalty. Their
