HAVE MADE NO BARGAIN.
DEJIOCUATIC SENATORS HAVE NOT
AOK1SKD TO STOP TARIPF TALK.
Tlio Republicans Can Got Out of the Hole
Tlioy Aro In as Best Thoy Bliiy Sena
tor McPherson Docs Not Kxpcct Ad
journment llcforo October.
Between tho two contending wings of the
Republican party tho Democratic Senators aro
still maintaining an attitudoof strict neutrality.
Tho Quay or Anti-Forco bill faction of tho
Republican Senators have been making over
tures to the leading Democratic Senators, but
tbolattorhavonotundcrtaken to take part In
any bargain or compromise. As belonging to
tho minority party in tho Senate, the party
which cannot beheld responsible for tho con
duct of the public business, they hold them
selves strictly aloof from all squabbles as to
modes of procedure and tho formation of a
limited-session programme, merely re
serving to themselves the right of an
opposition, participation and debate. Tho
Democrats aro not to blamo for the hole Into
which tho Republicans have got themselves,
and tho Republicans may now stow In their own
juice. This Is the attitude and these are tho
sentiments of the leading Democratic Senators
in relation to the Congressional situation.
The Tariff bill is the thing now before the Sen
ate. It is the thing also which tho country at
present is thinking and worrying about. Tho
Democrats believe It to bo their duty to let tho
country understand as fully as possible what
kind of a bill that is; and tho only way to do
that is to discuss It lino by line and expose all
its multitudinous iniquities to the licht of day.
Senator Gorman, chairman of tho Democratic
caucus, says that no agreement has been
reached respecting the date when a vote shall
bo taken on tho Tariff bill. Tho debate, he
says, will continue, in pursuanco of the policy
adopted at tho only Democratic caucus held
this session, and which was applied to the
Blair bill, tho Montana election case, and other
subjects. When it Is thought there has been a
sufficient discussion of the Tariff bill tho
Democrats will acree, in accordance with tho
custom of tho Senate, to take a vote upon it.
The question has been privately under con
sideration on both sides of tho chamber and
numerous dates suggested, but no conclusion
has been reached. The proposition for a close
must come, he says, from tho Republicans.
None has yet been received, and when it comes
it may or may not prove satisfactory in all re
spects. Tho general impression is that the date
for voting on the Tariff bill will be fixed at
about September 5.
Senator McPherson yesterday did not deny
that propositions for some sort of a conference
between the two sides of the Senate on order of
business had been suggested to him, but he did
not adont the suggestions, . partly because he
could not leave his desk while the Tariff bill
was under discussion in tho Senate and partly
because his disposition is to leave the Republi
cans to work out their own salvation or bear
alone tho penalties of their own iniquities.
"There has been no conference," said he, ''be
tween Republican and Democratic Senators
that I know of, and no promises mado that I
am awaro of. I do not say that I would bo un
willing to go with tho Democrats If a majority
of them should decide that Congress could be
adjourned on a certain day."
Tho Senator's judgment is that the Tariff bill,
at the quickest, cannot bo got out of Commit
tee of tho Whole before tho middle of Septem
ber. When that stage has been reached ho
thinks the Democrats will not insist on causing
any further delay by debating over again In tho
Senato what has already been debated in tho
committee. But tho reciprocity proposition, in
some shape, will be In tho bill when the Senate
returns it to tho II01160 and otherwise it will
differ so much from tho House bill that it will
inevitably have a long timo in conference be
tween the two Houses. It will bo well on in
October, ho thinks, before the Tariff bill can bo
finally disposed of.

Tho good, whole-souled widow who is said to

only a paltry hundred dollars or so. It mny,
however, have been n widow who' furnished
Judge Pelhani, who1 is serving with Mr.
Chapm Blown as White's counsel, says that ho
sent White off to Boston with n statement of
his assets and liabilities, and a full realization
of tho serious sido of tho case. The liabilities
aro mado up of various items to the sum total
of $1,200. Of tho assets ho Is not quite so sure.
Tho District Attorney has $385 credited to
Whlto and this can be obtained by his counsel
at any time The bank of which White was
a patron holds $10p on his account, but declares
a suit will bo necessary to get it, as false pre
tenses arc mixed up with Its deposit.
Tho Judgo has heard from White 6lnce his
landing in Boston and he reports that ho Is
coming on finely in his efforts to make up the
needed $700 or 60. Ho did have to leave Wash
ington rlcht hurriedly, it is true, but that was
because tho Judge thought his bondsman had
become afraid of his bargain, and ho wanted to
put tho latter out of tho temptation to with
draw. "Mr. Cornlntr is in Baltimore, hut will be
back Monday," 3aid Judgo Pelham on Satur
day. "I don't think he has any idea of rear
resting White, os be caused his tirst arrest, and
his claim of $415 will be paid in due time if
White is given tho chance to raise It. Thero
would be no object In arresting him again, and
I think he is safe on that score. I shall write
for White this evening aud have him back hero
'on Monday or Tuesday. There is no danger
whatever that he'll niako any effort to forfeit
his bond. He fully understands that his only
chance to escape the penitentiary under the
charges of forgery and embezzlement is In
making good the amouuts ho took. This is
what ho will do prior to the day set for his ap
pearance before the grand jury. There is no
disposition to press the charges If the amount
is made up."
DON'T AVANT HIKE TO GO.
A Petition to tho President to Sacrifice Col.
There aro a number of people in the District
who don't want Commissioner Hine to go. They
think ho Is so useful a man that the District
can't afford to lose him. If anybody must go,
they prefer it should bo Commissioner Robert.
The citizens who feel this way have got up a
potltion to the President 6tatlng their case and
arc circulating itforslgnaturcs. Itis as follows:
"To the President: The undersigned residents
and propel ty holders of the District of Columbia,
irrespective of party considerations and affilia
tions, beg leave to say thatwohavo learned with
extreme regret that the Hon. L. G. HIno has
tendered his resignation os a member of tho
Board of Commissioners of said District and of
tho causes that led to that step.
"We do not wish to be understood as criti
cising the action of Col. Robert, the engineer
member of the board, or as taking any part in
tho matters of difference which unfortunately
have arisen, or to impute to Col. Robert any
purpose to do othsr than what he con
scientiously deems to be his duty, but we do
desire to 6ay that Mr. HIno's ability as a lawyer
aud as a business man, his bitdi character for
intecrity, and his knowledge of the affairs of
tho Dlstiict suggest tho importance) of retain
ing his services as Commissioner, if possible.
It will not bo an easy task to find another who
will accept tho place who has tho qualities
requisite and who will havo tho confidence of
the people reposed in him and to which he Is
"If a change must bo made In tho board, wo
venture to suggest, without reflecting In any
way upon tho ability or motives of Col. Robert,
that It would bo easier and better for tho public
service to make a now selection from among
tho Engineer Corps of tho Army, if by doing so
tho services of Mr. Ilinc can bo retained.
"Wo bee t5 assure you that wo are not actu
ated in making this suggestion by any consider

grant to Mr. Powdorly Investigating
Causes of tho Trouble.
New Yohk, Aug. 23. Speaking of tho strike
situation to'day Mr. Powderly said every tele
gram ho had received was encouraging. There
would bo n strike, ho said, but just when It
would bo declared or what territory it would
cover ho did not yet kuow.
Mr. Powderly talked freely about Mr. Webb's
statement that the men were discharged for
drunkenness and othor causes. "That's what
wo want to find out," he said. "If they were,
that's tho end of the strike. But we know the y
were uot. That's why wo wanted an investiga
tion. I will reply to Mr. Wcbb'6 statement to
dav." It is apparent from Mr. Powderly's conversa
tion that tho executive board had not yet
formulated a plan of tho strike. Nearly every
thing will depend on tho Terro Hauto meeting,
hut tho Knights will strike whether the Su
preme Council supports them or not.

Tho fate of tho New York Central Railroad
for the time being, as well as that
of thousands of employes and tens of thouands
of the traveling and mercantile public, rests In
a large measure at 9 o'clock in the hands
of the committee who aie closeted In a room
ou the third lloor of the Terre Haute
Hotel. They are Secretary E. V. Debs, of the
Firemen's Brotherhood; S. I. Morrisscy, of tho
Trainmen, and John Downey, of tho

of thoso most familiar with tho

avoidable absence of Commissioner Robertson,
It was deemed best to postpone Its determina

Waiuienton, Va., Aug. 23. Tho visitor to
tho Warrenton of twenty-live years ago would
not know this interesting Virginia village to
day. It Is a town of tradition as well as ad
vancement. While It has not yet received a
business Impetus equal to many other Southern
cities, yet It Is on tho list of towns which aro to
bo benefited by tho onward march of improve
ment. A new railroad is projected, to terminate
at Washington, new water works have just been
established, and other improvements aro con
templated. But It is not in nn industrial sense alouo that
this delightful place lays claim to advantages
for a popular summer resort. Here maybe
found tho fairest types of Southern beauty and
an attractive and chlvalric cotcrio of
gentlemen, whose devotion to tho fairer sex is
at all times gallant. Warrenton has gained a
Stato if not a national reputation for Its sum
mer festivity. It is safe to say that no place of
like population in America crowds 60 much of
eujoyment and genuine pleasure in one summer
than does this noted Virginia vlllago nestled In
tho Fauquier valleys. The resort known as
Fauquier White Sulphur Sprints is tho least of
its attractions. While this place is filled from
Juno to September, yet it fs the picturesque
village Itself which fs tho scene of all tho gayc
ties naturally to ho found where lovely women
and popular men congregate.
It is now some ten summers ago since the
German Club was first organized. Every Fri
day during the season a german is given, ad
mission being by card alone, and no fairer or
more brilliant scene can be witnessed any
where. The best music procurable is always
in attendance, (usually Weber's,) and the club
is fortunate in possessing in Dr. Baldwin Day a
leader second to none In this country. No
german is complete without him, and the
novices In a cotilion are always 6ure of their
footing when he is in the lead. It would bo a
sad calamity should Dr. Day revoke this calling.
The pink german given August 15 was tho
greatest success of the year, aud many say no
more complete cotillon was ever held. Wo
were entirely misinformed about this delightful
affair in our notice of last Sunday, and gladly
correct the error.
The german of Friday last, while not as elab
orate in its details as the event of a week pre
vious, was scarcely less enjoyable. Among the
dancers were a number from Washington.

tho participants, but among the more notice
able costumes were those of Mrs. William C.
Marshall, most becomingly attired in black
lace; Mrs. Grenvllle Gaines, charmingly at

diamond ornaments; Mrs Robert Downman, of
Texas, white cashmere and blue velvet; Mrs.

GEN. GROSVENOR'S GROWL.
Civil Service Shams Shown Up Roosevelt
Challenges tho Charges.
Some timo ago Gen. Grosvenor, of Ohio, de
livered a speech in tho Houso upon civil 6orvlco
reform which attracted wide attention and
called forth denials as to tho accuracy of somo
of his statements. Yesterday tho General aj
peared before tho Houso Committee on Reform
in the Civil Service to answer these criticisms.
Ho stated that ho was not an opponent of civil
service reform, but believed in tho merit system.
Ho insisted that his assertion that no man or
woman had been appointed from his district
was ptrlctly true, though many had pabsed tho
examinations, aud repeated tho statement made
in his speech that tho Commissioners induced
persons to tako tho examinations when they
know thero was no chanco whatever of appoint
ment. Gen. Grosvenor commented upon tho
action of tho commission in advertising
throughout the South that examinations will bo
hold for positions in tho Pension Bureau, under
tho law providiug for additional clerks.
Ho desired to know if clerks iii other branches
of tho Government service could not be trans
ferred to tho Pension Bureau for tho now woik.
Ho had received many protests against what,
ho 6aid, seemed to bean attempt to'drivo North
ern men out of tho bureau. He would not, ho
said, lower tho grade of fitness for the positions
in tho civil service, nor would ho discharge a
man because of his political opinions. Ho
would abolish tho Board of Commissioners. Its
formatiou was not contemplated by tho Con
stitution, and ho would havo a system of exami
nations somewhat analogous to that in voguoin
tho Census Bureau. Commissioner Roosovolt
replied to Gen. Grosvenor at some length, and
challenged tho charges he had mado against tho
