lina wilt the following telegram to Oov
llvcrmnli Wlrm ll'Vrnl.
"Bv the new amendment to the Cons'!-'

iluty of Issuing writs of election to nil tho i
v.icane but has no power 'o fill by ap

for by l.i w.
"Tho n'otlons that follow direct that all
special elections Hhall bo held on such
dales as tho Governor may direct. It Is
the general opinion of the Democratic law
ors In the Senate that the Governor can
call a special election and that the candi
date elected will bo entitled to Ills seat.
How-over, there Is much division of opinion
In the Judiciary committee, Mime holding
to tho opinion thit the Oovernor cannot
call an election until the Legislature had
been i ailed together and takes action In
S'lMtoi Overman ha received two tele
giams and aim letters from Alabama
inking that he confer with the Democratic
leaders In the Senate and advise the (Jov
ernor One of tho messages ranie from
Senator Hjnkhead of Alabama and an
other from tin- chairman of the Alabama
Democratic State committee.
HrpulillraiK Won't I'nlr.
That tho Democratic leaders are by no
means sure of their K round developed to
day when, after the conference In the Ju
dicial y committee room hart ben under
way tor some time, a proposition was sub
mitted to the Republican sld of the
chamber to arraiiKe foi n pair between one
llepulillcan s-nator and the vacancy now t
exUtliiK from tho Statu of Alabama. It
WllA SllUested In suppoil of this propoial
that Senator Ittiilelxli of Maine has been
absent all this session on account of Ill
ness, and may not be able to be present
it all and that tho seat of Senator Jack
son of Maryland, a llepubllcun. Ii Im
I'orllled by the new Constitutional amend
ment The proposal met with no favor on
the Kcpublcan side..
Many Democrats are fearful that If
Oov u'Neal calls a special election to
till the vacancy without llrst convening
tliu Alabama LcKlslature to set In motion
tho machinery for the election the He
publican Senators will refuse to recoR
nlze the person thus chosen at the special
election. Senator H.uoii has adhered to
the eiv that the Uoxernor had no power
to call a special election to choose a
Senator until after the. Alabama Legis
lature has met and provided by statute
for such an election.
Apparently the majority of the Demo
oratle members of the Judiciary Com-

The Itepubllcans do not adopt this view! I
and It Is almost certain that reslstanm
win be offered to any person who pr
sent credentials ,ih Senator from the
lioverunr of Alabama based on the result
of an election culled under such condi
tions. Amendment I Ambiguous.
Another small coterie of Senators, some
of them Republicans, declare that the
flovernot may appoint . successor to
Senator Johnston under the constitutional
nmenilnieut which provides that the
amendment shall not affect "the election
or the term" of any Senator chosen he
fore the constitutional amendment wns
i .oclalined. This construction Is based
on two words, "the term."
The Senators who hold that the Oov
ernor may appoint say that the term of
Senator Johnston would not have ex
Idled until March, 1015, and that this
"tirm" cannot be affected by the con
Despatches from Alabama In tho morn.
Ing newspapers! Indicated that Congress
man Pnderwood nnd other Democratic
ndvlsets of (lov. O'Noll, held to this view,
but a majority of the Senators do not
adopt this construction and say that the
words "the term" relate only to tho ac
tual service of the Senator and are not
to bo construed as applying to the full
six year term.
The diversity of opinion over the con
struction of the words "the term," bus
raited an Interesting question as to the
situation In M.tr.vland, It Is pointed out
that Senator Jackson, a Republican, who
was appointed by (lov. Ooldsborough of
Maryland to servo ail Interim to nil a va
cancy caused by the death of Senator
liaynor. Is entitled to serve until thn
Maiyland Legislature meets In due course,
which will not bo until next year. These
i onstructlonlsts hold that the Governor
of Mar.vland had no authority to call the
special election which ha has proclaimed.
Nenntor .InrUsou's Case.
The argument put forward In support
of this contention Is that "the term" of
Senator Jnckson had begun beforo thu
constitutional amendment was proclaimed
and that It will nut be controlled by the
amendment, but by the constitutional pro
vision that existed before, which would
cptltle, him to hold his office until the
It Is already manifest , to Senators that
the constitutional amendment was not so
clearly worded as tu avoid ambiguity.
Complications uro certain to ensue.

order reached her. She probably will
not begin her voyage until Fridav. The
Secretary or the Navy emphasized to-day
the fact that the two vessels had not
been ordered to Mexican waters; because
of any anticipated emergency theie, but
simply to facilitate the work of removing
Americans from districts In which hos
tilities lire feared.
Mr. Daniels said ho hnd acted In re
sponse to it letter from Admiral Fletcher,
commander of the second division of thu
Atlantic fleet, who Is aboard the Louisi
ana, off Vera Cruz. The Admiral had
point' d out that the waters of many of
thu Mexican (Julf ports were so shallow
as not to permit of tho entrance of bat
tleships. The Louisiana, ho said, was
forced to anchor six mlbs off Vera Crul.
This situation, he added, made It very
difficult for him lo reach the Americans
who desired the protection of tho Ameri
can vessels. Ho nsked for vessels of
light draught which he could send Into
harbors Inaccessible to battleships.
Xo Specific Orders tu Fletcher.
The Navy Department has Instructed
the Taroma nnd the Nashville to proceed
to Vera Cruz to tnko orders from Ad
miral Fletcher. It Is the desire of Sec
retary Daniels that American citizens
be given the shelter and protection of

To-day's debite disclosed that the In-Kurgeiit-s

tlal particular They evldentlv plan to
muster all their strength behind what 111
known us the Rags.lale-Henry .imet.d
mnts, which provide that eunni-y shall
be Issued on warehouse, n celpts lepu
tenting com. wheat and cotton, and po"-
slbly other staples.
This was Indicated In questions put to
Mr. i.lass to-day by tho tncinliers ot the 1
Hanking Committee, who voted against the
bill when It was referred lo the caucus.
The plea of those who support the Rags-dale-Henry
amendments Is that in the
proposed legislation "something should be
done for the farmers." It is pioposed thst
the farmers shall bo cared for through th.
medium of an amendment icquirlng I'e.l-
era I banks to Issue currency on w alehouse 1
receipts up to about Ju I""!' cent of th' .
While there has been a disposition 0.1 1
tho pint of man Democrats; to ridicule
the Ragsdale. Henry amendments, opal
actetlrlng them as a proposition to rente
"com tassel" currency, leaders rralt7 that
there Is sentiment for the amendments
among Republicans as well as Democrats
Por this reason the question was seil
ously discussed In caucus.

I Replying to criticisms of the bid made
I bv Repiesentutlve Rngsdalc of South Car
olina and others, Mr i.las in-isicd mat
the farmers as well ns all other clai-ses
were cared for by the proposed law Ho
argued that to permit the Impounding of
wheat, corn, cotton and ottuir grent sta
ple's, with the certainty that currency
could be issued against such ptoducts,
would encourage corners and In fact
make corners profitable.
He said ho regarded such a contingency
as dangerous In the extreme, and It wns
Inferred from his remarks that he believed
that the" storage of great agricultural
staples In warehouses, even as a basis
for short time notes, might tend to In
cicusu the cost of living by decreasing
the supply In time of need of breadstuff
Mr Class Insisted that section It of the
bill iclatlng to rediscounts properly safe
guarded the Interests of the farmeis I l.i
pointed out that under authority of this
provision credits might bo Issued 011 agri
cultural products nuee thne products en

This section piovldes thnt upon the
tndoisenient of any member bank nnv
I'ederal reserve bank may discount notes
and bills of exchange arising nut of com
mercial transactions. The bill then enti
merntcs notes nnd bills of oxchnngr l.
sued or drawn for agricultural. Industrial
or nmmerclal purposes.
The other leaders agreed with Mr Class
that thlu section of tho bill s preferable
to the Ragsdale-Henry amendments, the
effect of which they believe would be pe'
neclous whatever the Intent of the fram
ers. The leaders nro satisfied with tho bank
ing and currency situation in the llnuie
and feci that there will lie 1 1 1 1 1 or no
