To^provide these places the caucus commit^^tee had in the first place vacancies 011^several committees, some of the older^senators resigned from others, anil tlte^membership of committees were In^^creased, none of the more im|^ortutit com^^mittees being changed.
Washington,Dec. Mb^ The senate fin^^ance committee reported back adversely^the bill to provide for the organisation of^national banks with less capital than $50,-^OUO. The consideration was indefinitely^postponed. Among the bills introduced^to-day were the following: By Mr. Chand^^ler, to amend the laws relative to elective^franchise and providing under certain^contingencies for the conduct of eh*ctions^by ffederul officers, on the petition of^certain percentage of voters that tltey l^e-^lieve an election will be unfair if bold by^state officers, etc.; by Mr. Kpoouer, mak^^ing it the duty of proper officers of the^treasury and interior department to ad-^Just and settle the claims of auy state^against the Cnitcd States for ull lunds-^dis|^oMcd of by the Cnitcd States; by Mr.^Squire, for the erection of public build^^ing* at Seattle, Tucom* unci Spokum^Kail*, Washington, each to cost not to^exceed $310,0011; by Mr. Spooncr. a nee-^morial signed by 20 of bis former constit^^uents praying that boards of trade,bucket^shops and other mercantile iMsliesuiul ill^dividuals lie prohibited from fixing tin^value of the produce of American farms^by sales for future deliveries.
Theresolution offered yesterday by Mr.^Turpiu its to trusts, was taken up ami Mr.^Turpin proceeded to address the senate^upon it. He said trusts were the gigantic^sin of this age anil generation. The trust^was a nuisance, open und notorious, but^it could not he grappled with and sup^^pressed as other nuisances. And such^legislation as was pro-siscd in bills intro^^duced by Messrs. Sherman and George.

DehMotNKa, la.. Dec. 10.The name off^Justice Mathernrh off the supreme court^Baa been mentioned In connection with^the United States seoatorship to succeed^Allison. When approached by a reporter '^on the subject, he said:
Iant not, and never have been, a can^^didate for the Cnitcd States senators hi p.^I am attending to my official duties with^^out thought of politics. When they ask^me if I would take the sonatorship should^it be tendered me I simply say I am not^seeking tlte position. However, should it^be tendered me without auy bar^^gaining or any compromise of prin^^ciple or honor. I don't euppoae^1 would have the bardiliood^to refuse it^few men would. Off course 1^can't tell now what complications may^arise, and am not trying to play tin- role^of a prophet, but on one point there is 110^qucMtiou. with me, ami it is this, whatever^complications may arise I shall Is- a | Mirty^to lushing ^dishonorable, ami would not^accept a certificate of election as Cnitcd^States senator unless it should come to^me wholly free from association with di^honorable iiiethttda.
Nearlyall the prominent republicans of^Iowa have reached the conclusion that tin^senatorial lightning may strike tlieni^This fact is a strong indication that the^belief that Senator Allison cannot Is- re^^elected is becoming quite common among^republicans who have hitherto refused to^concede that such a result was within tin^range of pttsaihilitica.
Chicaoo,Dec. IO.^Forrest resumed his^address to the jury this morning, claiming^the stains anil paint on the parlor floor of^the Carlson cottage might have been put^then-by a reporter to get up a sensation^Just as was done with the bloody cotton^iMtttilig found ill the basement.
Mr.Forrest made an exhaustive analy^^sis of tlte testimony of some of tlie prom^^inent witnesses for tlte prosecution,reach^ing tlte conclusion that the Cmuin faction^of the Claii-na-Gael drilled witnesses to^give false testimony and that all of the^new evidence brought out since tlte sitting^of tlte coroner's Jury had Iteen manufac^^tured to strengthen weak s|tots in tlte case^of tlte state. Regarding tlw matter of the^knives found on Cougtllin, Forrest de^^clared that Conklin had committed per^^jury in swearing they belonged to Crouin.^Forrest will probably conclude to-morrow,^and tlte court will adjourn over Thursday^which is election day. Luther Latin Mills^who is to make the closing speech for tlte^state has been quite ill, and if not abb- t^^begin Friday a further adjournment may^he necessary.

CHKYKNNK,Wyo., Dee. ID. -Tin-opinion^is gaining ground in Central Wyoming^that the Standard ^ ^il company is rapidly^securing tlte ownership of much of th^^nil land and nearly all of tlte wells whicl^have Iteen put down to tin* oil-bearing^strututf ill the different oil-producing dis^^tricts. Where individuals sink wells ant^strike oil. for some singular reason the^wells are plugged up unilallowt-d to stand^iinprisluctivc. The Northwestern well at^Bessemer when down I.IMl feet wits^stopped, the tools withdrawn anil tin-^workmen sent Kast. experienced oil men^say the well will Im* one of tlte most valu^^able ill the region ami that some outside^influence causes the present stoppage of^work.

WAMHINciTON,Dec. 111. -The democratic^meuilicrs will meet in caucus shortly to^arrange the minority representation on^committees so they can lie re|Mirtcd to the^senate Is-fore the adjournment for the hol^^iday recess.
SenatorMorgan of Alabama was asked^to-day by an ussiH-iatcd press re|sirter the^purport of the resolution offered by him^yesterday regarding trade and commerce^with the free state of Congo, etc. The^senator said. ^When the convention of^powers met ill Merlin to fix the status of^Congo state the Cnitcd States did not ac^^cept the conclusions of the convention^mid therefore has 110 political right in that^country. 1 do not know that it has ever^been drought to the attention of Mr.^Blaine but 1 am anxious it should uml^that tlte Cnitcd States should secure^its just political power in Congo. My^reason for desiring this is that it may lie^able to encourage the negroes of this^country who have wealth and enterprise^but have not standing and never will have^here to engage in trade in that country.^Ultimately I have ill view the general emi^^gration of negroes from the I nited States^to Congo. They came from that country^and should return. Here their civilisation^is wasted, there it might he develo|Msl to^building up a government and country^that sltal- be a credit to them.
