of Mr. Kyle, of South Dakoln, ileellneit to
vote, mid the Jtepiibllonns, hiivlnB a plu
rality of the senate, wero thus enabled to
adopt the reolutlon by n vole of TO to 2S.
Mr. Kyle voted with the Democrats UK'iltist
A two boar debate followed the adoption
of the resolution, the purpose of which
was mainly political. The Democrats, un
der the leadership of Senator Gorman,
nbly seconded by Senator llarrl, attempt
ed to show that the reoiBnnlzatlon wns
erfeeled by nil nlliunrit between the lte
publleana and l'opullsts, eoiitendlm; that
the silence of the latter, bv imtklnK pos
sible the reorsanlzatlon, indicated
iiequlescence. They also Insisted that tin
ilepiibllean assumption of control saddled
them with the responsibility for IcKlilatlon.
'I he l'opullsts, led by Senator Allen, of
Nebraska, and Senator llittler, North Car
olina, denied that they were In any fashion
responsible for the result. The Jtupubllc
ans, under the leadership of Senator Mitch
ell, ehaltman of the Itepubllcan steering
epinmlttee, and assisted by Senators Hoar,
Hale. Allison and Chandler, comlutted the
nnrnment of the Democrats by nisertlnK
most emphatleally that tho l'opullsts had
oven refused to make any siiKestlon as
to their committee asslKiimcnts nnd had,
as a matter of fact, been left by the re
oiKanlzatlon In the positions to which they
had been assigned under tho Democratic
control of the senate. The Kepublleans
stroiiBly protested, nNo, against being held
responsible for legislation.
Heroic tho reorganization, Ilenrv Cabot
Lodge, the senator from Massachusetts,
who has made a brilliant reputation as an
historical biographer, delivered an address
on the Monroe doctrine. Although temper
ate In language, he took the ground that,
unless wo iiislstid that Venezuela's dis
pute with Oreat llrltaln should be submit
ted to friendly arbitration, wo would sur
render the essence, spirit nnd vital prin
ciple of the Monroe doctrine, which he
contended was as essential to the safety
and welfare of the Americans as tho balance
of power wa to the safety and welfare
of lOiiropean nations,
Large AtleMthinfo or Senators.
There was a large atlendance of senators
to-day In anticipation of the vote on the
reorganization of the senate, and the gal
leries weio well tilled with holiday spec
tators. Mr. I'el'fcr, of Kansas, presented resolu
tions from several a. A. It. posts In Kan
sas, ofl'eilng their services to tho United
States In tbo event of war with Great
At 2:1.", p. m. the resolution for the reor
ganization of the senate wils offered, and
Mr. tlornian called for the yeas and nays,
to test the stiengtb of the Republicans.
The llrst Populist senator called was Allen,
of Nebraska, who did not vote. Duller did
not vote. The Democrats all voted no.
K1p, 1'opulisl. of South Dakota, oIed no.
Senator i'ei'fer did not vote, nnd Stewart
also remained silent. The reorganization
resolnlloif pasted the cenate yeas :iu, nays
SS. thus insuring Itepubllcan control.
The cleik of the liono announced the
passage of the bond bill by I bat body.
Mr. Chandler, of New Hampshire, who
has been waging war against the interstate
commerce commission for not putting a.
stop to pooling arrangements, introduced a
bill to enlarge the Interstate commerce
commission and modify and Increase the
scope of its powers.
Mr. llrlee offered resolution!) Instructing
tin- secretary of war to make an examina
tion of the physics and hydraulics of the
f Ileal lakes and to icport on the feasibility
and cost of raising tho level of the lakes
by a series or dams,
Mr. Chandler offered n resolution calling

A resolution offered by Mr. Quay, ot
T'ennsvhanla. was adopted, directing the
secretary of the navy to Inform the senate
whether, in Ills opinion, It would bn ad
vantageous to the naval service to contract
now for six battleships Instead of for the
two at piesent authorized, on the basis of
the bids now before ihe navy department.
Mr. Lodge, of Massachusetts, then took
tint lloor to deliver an addiess on the Mon.
roo doctrine. Defore ho began, Mr. Milch
ell, of Oregon, chairman of tln Republican
caucus committee, gave notice that at th.
completion of Mr. Lodge's remaiks ho
should ask Hie senate to take up the lines.
Hon of riorganlzlng tliu committees of tho
I.odgo on the .Monroe Doctrine.
Mr. Lodge's addiess was listened lo with
attention by the senate, lie gave an Inter
esting sketch of the history of tho Monroe
doctrine anil told how it was vitally In
volvcd In the Venezuelan boundary line
controversy, lie followed this with a brief
relation or the pending dispute, netwceii
Great llrltaln and Venezuela, which he said
had now reached a crisis all'cctliig most
gravely the honor, the Interests, the right.
nnd tho well settled policy of tbo t'nlted
if Ib'igland, with no authority but n ills
putcd claim, seized territory and declined
iirbltiiillon upon It. her action, be declared,
did not dllfer from seizing and holding now
teriltiny In the Americas by light of con
nuest. It she could seize terrlloiy under a
claim which had grown larger with each
succeeding year, there wns nothing to. pre,
vent her taking Indellnlte regions In South
America, The senator referred to theclalpi
made on Venezuela by Great llrltaln lor
reparation on account of tbo arrest by the
authorities of the tnrmcr country or llrltlsli
subjects In tbo disputed tenltory. Hut tho
question of reparation, he said, must not
be mixed up With the acquisition of tcirN
lor.v. If Venezuela paid the indemnity llxed
anil demanded by Great llrltaln, she ac
knowledged. In doing bo, that tbo disputed
country Is Iliitisli territory, and niado tliu
whole case void,
Our Interest Neglected Too Long.
Tho foreign policy and the great Interests
of tho I'nlteil Suites which lay beyond her
Imnlcrtt bad been neglected too long, de.
elated Air. Lodge, The mutter of the boun.
ilary dispute should be settled by urbltra
Hon. because, If It lJ settled otherwise, It
would be u blow to the vital priieiole to
the welfaro uml the dignity of the I'nlted
States, lie did not believe the people, of
r'nghind had the least ileslro to engage 111
hostilities with thu I'nlted btales any moio
than wo sought or desired hostilities with
"Wo have." said Senator Lodge, "seen
IlrllUh forces, at Corlnto. We know tho
attitude they assume in Venezuela. They
are uttempttng to take land on the Alaskan
boundury. They have just denounced the
modus vlvendl and reojicned In that way
the perilous dispute of Ihe seal fisheries. It
is not by accident that these events havu
all occurred or all come to an ncute stago
within the pant year." ,
The senator closed by expresslnsj the be
lief that tbo questions between Kngland
and the t'nited Stutes would bo peaceably
settled, but It was very clear that such set.
tlement could only be reached by action on
the part of congress and the president,
which should be as llrm as it was temper
ute, and which should muliitain the M niroe
doctilno absolutely and ut all hazards,
wherever it Justly applied.
Itciiublleiiii in t'outrol.
Mr. Ivodso occupied tho floor almost two

when Ihe senate met that neither of the

Mr. Gorman, therefore, demanded tho

Altitude of tbo I'lipnllsts,
As soon as the vote was announced. Mr.
Allen rdt It Incumbent upon hlmelr to
mnkr an explanation or the nttltulle or the
third parly men. He wanted the senate
and the country lo understand that, though
small In number, they constitutid the nu
cleus of a thoroughly orgiiiil&ed party,
completely Independent In political prin
ciples nnd sympathies. When the senate
convened, n majority or the members pto
ressed to be In favor of Ihe free and un
limited coltuiKC or sliver. Letters had been
sent to all of them to meet with u lew
to organizing the senate on silver lines.
With the exception or two or three, there
W'ns no lesponse. The Populists hud, there
fore, Mr. Allen said, decided to take no
part lu the ouestlon us to who should con
trol tbo organization. Personally, be was
glad the responsibility for legislation bad
p.-vswd into the .bands or the Kepublleans
at both ends or the capllol.
Mr. Harris, Demoernt, or Tennessee, pro.
reeded to put Mr. Allen through a cross
examination, alter his usually emphatic
fashion. He wanted to know If the Popu
lists, with the full knowledge that they
held the balance of power, hud not deliber
ately determined, by their silence, to allow
the itcpubllcans. who had three more votes
than the Democrats, to take control, and It
their silence did not, therefore, make them
as much responsible lis their votes.
Mr. Allen said Hint the Populists realized
that they held the balance of snver.
"We have go It," he said, turning to Mr.
Harris, "and propose to utilize It.'
The Democratic party claimed to be the
party of tariff reform. He believed In
lightening the burdens of the people. But
the turlir bill came In loaded to the guards
with protection. He bad concluded that
the Democratic party, as repiesentcd by
Mr. Cleveland and his friends, had neither
tho capacity nor the disposition to relievo
the people. (Itepubllcan laughter.) The
same was true or the Itepubllcan party,
(Democratic laughter.) The policy of the
Republicans Inaugurated in tbo other
branch ot congress, to be followed here,
he predicted, would work thu ruin of the
party within six months.
A Mill hcll-llari-in 'lilt.
Mr. Mitchell, Republican, ot Oregon, de.
nled that the Republicans could be held
responsible. They had not been In the ma
jority, and weie not now In the majority.
Whether thev would be before the session
closed remained to be seen. "I will say
when the senate Is full It consists ot eighty
eight members; when not lull, as It Is
now, of eighty-seven. Or these eighty
seven, forty-two nre Republicans, thlrty
nlue Democrats and six l'opullsts. H that
state of the case gives us a majority of the
members we are icsponslble." He said In
justice to the Populists that they bad ab
solutely refused to even suggest commlttc
assignments. They were, with one or tio
exceptions, allowed to retain what they had
had In the Fifty-third congress.
"Was not the position of non-action aid
silence taken by the l'opullsts," iiiquin d
Mr. Harris, "quite as satisfactory as if
they had pledged their votes to tho resolu
tion?" "We are always satisfied with what tbo
senate does," replied -Mr. Mitchell, smil
ingly. "The senator from Tennessee understands
that the rules give the plurality control of
the committees," said Senator Hoar, Re
publican, or Massachusetts.
" am aware of the rule," replied Mr.
"The senator Is aware of everything'."'
"No, not every tiling," retorted Mr. Har
Mr. Palmer, Democrat, of Illinois. Inter
rupted Air. Hoar to ask whether the Re
publican paity declined to be responsible
lor the committees, to which the latter re
plied that Ihey would bo responsible with
in all reasonable bounds.
Referring lo a charade! Ization by Air.
Harris or the Populist puny as a contin
gent or the Republican party. Air. Hoar
declared that Ihe Populists would vote ten
times with the Democrats wlieie they
would voto once with the Republicans.
Senator Itntter's rir-t speech
Air. llutler. Populist, or North Carolina,
made his llrst speech 111 the senate while
the debate was in progress by adding to
Air. Allen's explanation his own views re
garding the attitude or the Populists. Re
ferring to the efforts, of the Populist sen
ators (o secure an organization on n silver
basis, he asked Senator I Ian Is ir he bad
not received an Invitation to the conference
called for this purpose.
"I did," said Air. Ilanls. "and 1 have
but one remark to make In that connec
tion. I'll to this hour there has never been
a period 111 my life when I was willing to
join any parly based on one single Idea."
Hxplalnliig, in reply to a question, the
combination by which he had been selected
to the senate, Air. Itutler said ill, it his suc
cess was due to the fact that the Demo
cratic pally of North Carolina had gotten
to he so corrupt Hint It was repudiated by
good men in nil parties.
Senator Hale said the vole in the senate
to-day, and the proceedings subsequent,
bad demonstrat'-d that neither partv was
In power, and thai il had shown that it
would tie Impossible for the Republicans to
accomplish anything without tho aid of
one of the other parties.
"The truth Underlying the whole pro
ceeding." r-loiled Senator Vest, of Alls
souil. "Is tliat reorganization was made
possible by the agreement to put .Mr. Wal
cott, a tree coinage man, on the llnnnco
committee, thus milking that a free coin
age committee. That U the secret of the
whole matter, and without that conces.
slon the leoignnlzatlon would never liavo
been put through."
Air. Allison (Rep., Ja.) replied lo this
thrust that nil this was a mere dealing with
leather and prunella. The complexion ot
the tlnance committee, which was now n
rice coinage committee, nail not Keen
changed. He declared that reorganization
had been made necensary by the addition
of new men to the senate and by the ne
cessity for the enlargement of the com
mittee. Air. Gorman stioko next, saying that tbo
Republicans had sought the power which
the control of the committees would give
them, and he said that he was amazed that
Mr. Allison should thus early seek to avoid
the responsibility which his party had us.
sullied. Thej had assumed tho responsibil
ity and mu.t meet It like men.
'tbo Miter riuauce Committee,
Mr, Hale asked Air. Gorman how it had
happened that the Democrats', having a.
ready live lice coinage men on thu llnanee
committee, had elected to placo another
man advocating fiou silver on that commit,
To this Air. Gorman relorted that the
Republluins, having full control, had placed
two free colnase men on the committee.
Mr. Teller here interrupted to say that If
two free coinage men had not been added
it would have been Impossible for tbo Re.
publicans to organize at all.
Air. Chandler followed In i humorous and
sarcastic vein, saying that he hoped the
Demoeiats would soon recover flam tho
anxiety they were displaying over the sit
nation. He said the Kepublleans would
meet (be responsibility.
Air. Harris KQt the lloor as Air. Chandler
sat down. He npologlzed for precipitating
the dt bale that had occurred.
"I wanted to state," said be, "that If I

reaching nnd vociferous roar. Such of them
n.s nre now in Toifkn, "make no bones" of
the admission that the pnriwse of that
meeting was to select a limn who would
make the race against Lelntul. and, having
selected Judge Johftson, they naturally ob

any such manner us he Indicated In his In
terview, Some of Ibis roar must have reached the
curs of Judge Johnson, tor to-day ho In
formed the teportcr Hint on Saturday be
had not quite caught the dritt of his state

day, "that Cy I, eland and I had long been

to make upon him. I do not sec how my

"The matter of a national committeeman
Is an alter conclusion. When the delegates
rrom Kansas are all elected they will agree
on a man for national committeeman among
themselves. You misunderstood me In su
ing that I would not become a candidate
for committeeman. What I said was" (and
the Judge's eye twinkled with Infectious
merriment) "that 1 would enter no light
against .Mr. Lelaiid which would Jeopardize
our personal friendship. Has il never oc
elli red to yon that two men men may seek
the siune olllce Without becoming- ene

national committeeman'."' bluntly queried
"I had not intended to make any such
announcement, for 1 believed that was a
matter unusual to take Up until the dele
gates Were elected, but to relieve no self
from being misunderstood I will frankly tell
you that I expect to become a candidate
for that place.'

made a little speech, as follows:

.Mr. Leland said to-night:

Judge Johnson is all right. He has just

anything else be might ask. While these
seven gentlemen have signed, scaled and

Continuing, .Mr. Leland wild, us bis eye
