Thcio Is no doubt, In the minds of tho re
publican Senators, that thcro will bo n
quorum pi cscnt when tlio Scnato convenes.
Tho selection of n l'rcsldont pro tempnrc
Is generally conceded lo bo In doubt. Tho
Impression that Senator Edmunds docs not
desire tho honor Is becoming more general.
Senator Allison Is authority for a state
ment that tho Presidency of tho Soiialo was
not discussed at yesterday's meeting and Is
not likely to bo considered at any mooting
of Senators beforo the caucus on next Thurs
day or Fildoy ovcnlng. Tlio Senators now
In tho city aro so few In number that a dis
cussion of tho subject among them would
Ono of tho most prominent and conserva
tive llepubllcnu Senators said to a CittTli)
reporter to-day that ho had no doubt that
tho Presidency of thoSenato would go to
tho West by caucus nomination. "Senator
Edmunds can, undoubtedly, havo tho Presi
dency of tho Scnato If ho seeks It, but I am
almost certain that ho docs not. It ho Is not
n candhlato, Senator Logan Is much more
likely to bo chosen than any other.
"Tho Ucpubllcan party has oxprcwod Its
dcslro that Senator Logan should prcsldo
over tho sessions of the Senate, nnd that
fact should havo great weight with Ucpub
llcan Senators. My Judgment would ho
that Senator Logau will bo chosen presi
dent pro tempore lfhodoslrcs to bo."
It was currently rumored to-day that Sen
ator Logon had opened nn active canvass
for tho Presidency of tho Senate, but this
was cquauy positively iicnicu.
Ono nromlncnt Senator said: "Senator
Edmunds, Ixigan or Sherman would not
mako anything llko a canvass In his own
favor. Tho Scuato Is n peculiar conserva
tive body and Its leaders nro dignified and
conservative men, particularly In matters
pertaining to tho Scnato Itself. Senator
Logan will not tell his colleagues that ho
desires to bo elected, If such Is tho case,
unless they ask him."
8enator Sherman's friends aro confident
that ho will ho selected It ho permits It to
bo understood that ho. would accept tho po
sition. Tko Democratic Senator to whom tho
complimentary vote will bo given Is not
known. Thero aro very few Democratic
Senators In tho city nnd among them Sena
tor Harris of Tennessee Is about tho only
person mentioned In this connection. Sen
ator Cockrcll says tho Presidency of tho
Scnato Is very much In doubt. Ho assumes
that it will bo a ltepubllcati, aud cither Ed
munds, lOgan or Sherman. Senator Gib
eon says u Ucpubllcan will of courso bo
elected, but ho docs not know who. Sena
tors Morgan, Jones (Ark.) and Hansom
think Edmunds will again bo President of

An altercation occurred on Maryland nvo
nuc, near Four-and-a-llalf street, bctwoon
a crowd ol colored men about 11 o'clock
yesterday morning, during which Nathan
Bell, one of tlio combatants, drow a pistol
and discharged It Into tho crowd. Not
waiting to sco tho result of his murderous
act, Bell started oil on a run, nourishing tho
pistol In his hand, Ho had not proceeded
far beforo ho was overhauled by Ofllccr
Harry and escorted to the statlon-houso.
On tho nppcarauco of tho pollco tho other
rioters scattered, nnd tho ofllcers havo been
unablo to learn if any of them wero woundod
by tho shot. Shortly after tho occurrouco
Ofllccr Henry arrested Joslah Bell, who Is
supposed to havo been ono of tho partici
pants, and ou being searched at tho station a
razor and a pair of brass knuckles wcro
found In his pockets.
In tho Pollco Court to-day ho was chargod
with assault aud battery, and stated that
ho only wanted to scaro tho other by firing
In tho air. This was contradicted by wit
nesses, who said ho filed right at Commo
dore. Tho highest penalty ono year minus
a day was Imposed. An appeal was noted
and tho defcudant was committed In default
of $500 ball.
Thcro wcro also two cases of assault to
kill bcloro tho court, which wont over ou
account of tho severity of tho Injuries to
tho parties assaulted.
John McCarty was charged with assaulting
with Intent to kill Abo Thomas,both colored.
They quarreled in McFarland's saloon,
near Second and G 6trects southwest, over
a cramo of cards, and tho Unlit was con
tinued to tho street, whero Thomas drow a
Elstol and discharged It at McCarty, who
ad an open knlfo in his hand, llo threw
tho knlfo at Thomas, stabblnir him In tha
breast, seriously injuring him. Ball was
fixed at $500 and counsel asked for a re
duction. Tho Court refused, with tho re
mark that: "Theso peoplo who uso razors
aud pistols will havo to lookout. They aro
always ready for a chance to kill somo ono
and frequently Innocent peoplo aro Injured."
James Price, for cutting ucorgo Harrison,
another colored man, In tho latlcr's saloon
on Eleventh street near J street last
night, was also on tho list of would-bo
muidcrcrs. Tho proprietor uttemptod to
put Prlco out because ho was drunk and
disorderly, when Prlco drow a knlfo, as Is
charged, and cut Harrison on tho head,
arm and hand. Ho Is also charged with
cutting a waiter lu tho saloon during tho
Tho noxt candldato for Justice was a col
ored youth with a decidedly murderous
countenance. Ho was charged with as
eaultlug an uged colored man named Absa
lom Lindsay. Ho had a light with tho old
man's son and was going Into tho promises
of tho old man when ho was stopped by tho
latter. "Whero are you going," demanded
Mr. Lindsay. "I am going to kill that boy."
"No you aro not," was tho reply. "D n
It. if you don't let mo kill him," said tho
youthful candldato for a ropo, and ho cut
tho old man ucross tho breast. Eleven

says that although tho death ot tho latter
was unexpected to tho public it was not so
to him. Colonel Woodard, who is now lu

terday that "Mr. Hendricks, seven years
ago, had an attack of paralysis lu the
right side from which ho uovcr fully re
covered. Ho knew his condition perfectly,
and always expected death from a stroko ot
apoplexy. The first attack told somewhat
lu tlmo upon his mind, but It did not
