IS THE' PRESIDENT SICK?
HIS SUDDEN DEPARTURE FOR GRAY
PRIVATE IECRETART THIRIIKR says IT'S MA
I.ARIA?MR. CLEVELAND looked WELL
AND HEARTY. HOWEVER
inr Tautc.RAPii to tue rameau j
Watshington, Aug. 16.?The sudden, unexpected,
not ti say mysterious, departure, shortly after 7
o'clock this morning, of the President for Gray
? lables excites various comment. The consecrated
repository of Presidential mysteries, little Mr.
Thurber, gives the fallowing explanation:
The President left this morning for a few days'
Sbaenci under the advice of his Physician, in the
hope if shaklm? off an attack of malaria, from
which he has been suffering for several dava Yes?
terday lt culminated In fever, but was under con?
trol this murnini-. 1 >r. O'Reilly expresses no doubt
but thu a few divs of salt air and rest will re
cuperate the President svifflclently to renew his
official duties, and he will return to Washington by
t!.e mid lie ,.f n,>xt week. He has none to Gray
Gable* and ls accompanied by Dr. O'Reilly.
This is of course "ouicl.i]." Rut ls lt true?
There nre people who saw the President laat
night, ami who did not discover the outward
signs of thc "fever" faithful Thurber talks ab nit.
On the contrary, they say that the President,
though morose and not In an amiable frame of
mind, was looklnsr as well and hearty as he
usually does. To others, who eadie,] at the White
II.uso in the course of th.* early part of the week,
Mr. Cl-veland made no complaint as to feeling
ill, unless fooling- "sore" iver the triumph of Gor?
man and his allies be ranked among the Presi?
dential 111*. In the latter sense President Cleve?
land no doubt ls a sick, a very sick man.
Mystery, however, ls part of th" pomp with
Which Mr. Cl-veland loves to surround hims'If
In the anson.-e of royal purple. The comm in
herd may n it look upon him. except as h* drive*
by In a charlot carefully guarded by Detective
Thurber. II- never exposes his stately form to
the vulgar gaze by walking In the streets of the
Capital. II- has become as Inaccessible almost ns
th" Grand Llama himself, nnd he has about as
little appreciation of humor as that distinguished
personage. Wh.-n, therefore, descending the
kitchen stairs of the Exex-utlve Mansion he Slides
out of the back gate and drives by a circuitous
raite t.. the station, there to enter his private
.-ar in a manner ijulte ns mysterious anl un-ligni
fle I. h- sees ri .'h'.ng ludicrous In the performance;
on th- contrary! -l? Imagines that he has "J.me"
the public m a rather neat manner.
The departure naturally gives ilse to many
rum.rs. Excluding the theory nf sickness, which
ls generally discredited because of its Thm-ber*
i.ti source, ther.* remains the explanation that
the President has gone away to write a message.
A message on the Tariff MU of course. But
aviil lt be .ne vetoing the measure or explaining
his signature to sn act ..f "perfidy" and "dls
h nor"? This ls the question which agitates
Washington to-night. If he w*?nt to escape pres?
sure lt could be only to escape pressure to sign
the bill, for there ls no pressure bronchi to bear
upon him to veto it. lt looks to many people.
.... sa If he were preparing to tak*? th*
letter course And yet lt might require several
lays* ? nsecratlon to explsln the approval of B
??>, cia ii of Democratic principles." Between

"POPGUN" BILLS REFERRED.'
THE SENATE SENDS THEM TO THE DEAD?
LOCKED FINANCE COMMITTEE.
MR. GORMAN AND HIS FOLLOWERS SUCCEED VE
PREVENTING THEIR IMMEDIATE CONSIDER*.
TION-THE FIRST STEP IN THE
fBT TELEGRAPH TO THE THiniNE.]
Washington, Aug '6.-The four "popgun"
' Tariff bills, which have been for two days on th*
. desk of the Vice-President, were referred sut>
j cesslvely by the Senate this afternoon to the
? Finance Committee, the majorities in favor of
J this hostile action ranging from 15 to 20. The
radical free-trade element on the Democratic
i side, which has teen fretting for some oppor
i tunlty to revenge Itself on the successful authors
j and promoters of the dorman "compromise"
| tariff, fought bitterly to prevent a reference of
! those buncombe "con.solatlon" measures to the
deadlocked Finance Committee. But in spite of
the countenance given to this effort by Mr.
Vest himaelf, a leading member of the Finance
Committee, and by Mr. Co.-kiell, a prominent
member of the Democratic "Steering Committee,*"
it fell lamentably short of success. Mr. Oormaa
controlling ?nough Democratic votes to secure,
with the aid of the Republican minority, a vote
of two to on? against immediate consideration.
The rollcnlls to-day on the question of refer*
enoe developed Indeed very plainly the strength
of the two hostile factions within the Democratic
ranks, and disclosed publicly for the first time
slnci- the beginning of the tariff fight last Febru?
ary the "conservative" following, whose more or
less constant support mad- possible Mr. Gorman's
successful warfare on the Wilson bill. The
Democrats who voted to send the Free Sugar bill
to the Finance Comml'tee as the first step in the
programme of killing it by Indirection were
Messrs Blanchard, Brice. Batter. Caffery. Cam
den, Faulkner, Gibson, Gorman, Harris. Jones of
Arkansas, Murphy, Pugh and Roach. Mr. Smith,
of New-Jersey, waa paired on the Free Sugar bill,
but recorded his vote on the motions to shelvs
the free coal, free iron ore and free barbed
wire bills. Mr. Morgan, another "conservative,""
was absent, so the full strength of Mr. Gorman's
Democratic following ehould, perhaps, be esti?
mated on to-day'* rulle.ill at fifteen.
The radical free trade element could muster
only seventeen votes among -he Senators present,
although perhaps h'-ilf a dozen more could havs
been obtained tut for outstanding pairs with
Republicans. On a direct vote on free sugar or
free coal, four or five of Mr Gorman's sup?
porters would probably be driven to record their
names on me radical side, yet their assistance
can be depended upon by the Maryland bauer
In any parliamentary manoeuvres by means of
which he may seek to strangle one ur all of tha
P<>.**.*? IIU.F, EFFE''T OF THE ACTION
What will be the exact effect of to-day's refer
r>nce of the H.ouse measure* to the Finance Com?
mittee ls not quite clear. Mr. Harris, who had
promls-d to do what he could in the deadlocked.*
condition of the committee to procure an Imme?
diate report on the Fr*e Stigr.r bill, called a meet?
ing of the committee this afternoon, but he was
forced to adjourn lt until to-morrow without ac?
complishing anything. The Democratic members
nf the committee are, in ract. In little condition
to force action of any sort. Mr. Voorheea ls away
sick, and nothing ls known about his views on
the Hou*>e bill. Mr. Haet|? s-sss* Mr. Jcnes, of
Arkansas, favor amending the Hmso bill in def?
erence to Secretary Carlisle's appeal of yest-r
day by levying a 30 pe, cent Hat ad valorem
..i. ail sagara Mr. Veal :s disposed to ignore Mr.
I'arlisle's admonitions and warnings, and support
a straight free-sugar measure. Mr. McPherson
a Ivocatee a specBtC sugar duty of some sort, but
takes little ,.r no Interest in the proposed cam?
paign of revenge against the Truet and the
Louisiana planting Interests. The Ave Repub?
lican members oppose any (lat ad valorem duty
on sugars and favor shelving all the ??popgun"
measures for this session, unless one of them can
be amended .=o as to carry with it the full re?
enactment of the McKinley law.
With the committee a tl-, politically, there
seems to be little chance of obtaining a report
on th-* Free Sugar bil! Mr. Harris told the Sen?
ate yesterday that if a deadlock occurred In the
committee he would take Immediate steps tn
have the existing vacancy filled and thu* restore
control lo the ostensible majority. But Mr.
Gorman, wh . has general control of com
mlttee appdntments, ls much averse to mak?
ing a selection f..r the Finance Committee
at this session. A Democratic caucus would
have to be called to settle the claims of
the many aspirants for this important place, and
a selection could be made only after much per?
sonal friction and factional wrangling. Mr. Gor?
man has encouraged a number of Senators, In?
cluding Messrs. Hill, Murphy, Brice, White, of
California, and Blackburn, to lay claim to the
peace, and by those who are In tin* secrets of the
Democratic steering committee lt ls generally
understood that the Maryland Senator eontem
plates finally settling the coveted vacancy on
himself. Ile ls conspicuously entitled to lt in
fact, and has only refrained from accepting a
similar pla,.- before fir fear of arousing the
Jealousies of senior ass,, dates.
LACK OF A TOTING QUORUM.
Any appointment BOW would be subject, how?
ever, t> the chances of failure In the Senate from
lack of a voting quorum, a risk which Mr. Gor?
man ls likely t> urge on those who demand that
the vacancy shall be promptly filled. If, in aplte
of all these obstacles to a report, the free sugar
measure ls got again Into the Senate, lt will
be amended and debated until it dies a natural
In accordance with a decision reached by the
Republican conference committee thia morning,
the Republican Senators will not give assistance
in any further legislation. The Conference Com?
mittee void that the "popgun" bills ahould take
the usual course through committee, and be sub?
jected to a variety of amendments, particularly to
an amendment repealing the act Just passed and
re-enacting the McKinley law. It decided further
that lt is no part of the duty of the minority to
remain here all the rest of the summer and fall
to help the Democrats keep a quorum. Iietween
proposing amendments and breaking a quorum lt
is an easy matter to prevent any bills from pass?
ing. The quorum ls vanishing rapidly, and it ls
apparent that If an adjournment resolution ia not
...on adopted there will be no quorum to act upon
lt. While it does not require a quorum for either
House to adjourn from day to day, the final ad?
journment of the two houses ls a legislative act
requiring a majority either actually present or
assumed to exist If no point is made, should a
quorum be broken and that fact be developed by
a roll call, it would cause more or lesa embarrass?
ment. But the point of "no quorum" ls rarely
raised on so generally welcome a resolution aa
that of adjournment sine die.
It ls an Interesting subject of controversy about
the Capitol as to whether the President saw th*
letter of Secretary Carlisle to Senator Harris be?
fore lt wa* malled, and, If ao, whether he ap?
proved lt. It 1* the general impression that Mr.
Cleveland did not see lt, although no definite In?
formation can be obtained either at the White
House or the Treasury. On the morning after
the passage of the "popgun" bills by the House
of Representatives, the President expressed, to
reveral members of Congress his anxiety thst the
Senate should psss them before Congress ad?
journed?particularly the Free Sugsr bill, which
his Secretary of the Treasury now says ahould
not heeome a law. I
