Doin HTat of Al&bsuni, in replying to
Seniilor Hill's remarks in frivor of
counting a quorum, salil lie wus not

obviously it wasth.it tlio majority of
n leg slative body", ho suid, could take
care of itso'.f.
"Does tlio majority here takocaroof
itsulf?" asked .Mr. Washburn
"I will inform thn gentleman," re
plied Mr. .Morgan, "that lu hiniholf
has sometimes been in the majority
(leferring to Iheiintl-optlon bill) when
he wni not able to take care of him
self." "I have always besn able to t akc
care of myself in this body anil else
where," haul Mr. Washburn shnrplv.
'I have not n-cn it so wot Iced out In
the measure the senator has advo
cated," declared Mr. M. rgan.
' Tim senate passed that bill by a
handsome inijurity, but it failed iu
the house for the want of a two
thirds majority," said Mr. Washburn.
Mr. Morgun said ho did not wonder
that a politician b .rn unci raised in
Now York, where arbitrary force was
the moving ugeney m all political
machinery, both Democratic and Re
publican, had at last ionic to believe
that there was nothing else to be done
in politicb but Mmply to get a majority
of the votes and then use the power
which thut gave. He then went on
to speak of the "alliance und coali
tion" between ctrtain Democratic
senators and certain Republican sena
tors as certain to disrupt tuo De. no
eratic party, and ho ud.eil whether
his Democratic colleagues were will
ing to strike that fatal blow.
.Mr. .Morgan, in the course of his
speech, said he proposed to offer an
amendment to the bill to strike out
nil ufler tl.e enacting clause, and in
bert a section ro eallug the whole
and not a part of the Sherman law.
.Mr. Washburn thought over for
soiuo time tlio declaration of .Mr.
Morgan us to .1 coalition, und after
Mr. .Morgan had left tlio subject asked
him what ho meant by it
"1 mean an agreement, " said Mr.
Morgan, "between the Democrats ami
Republicans who favor tlio pending
bill, that it shall not bo amended in
any particular whatever. That is the
llrst proposition. Is that right."
"(Soon " urged Mr. Washburn.
"Is that right?" persisted Mr. Mor
gan. After tlio senator shall have made
his statement I desire to state there is
no coalition of any description." said
Mr. Washburn. "No agreement or
understanding of any character or de
scription, and when tlio senator slates
that there is a coalition lie docs a very
grave injury to every man on this side
of the chamber."
"I will not yield the lloor to tlio
ncnator toubusenie," said Mr Moiyun.
"I do not intend to," disclaimed
"Then sit down," demanded Mr.
I want to defend myself," said Mr.
Washburn, "and my Republican col

"I urn hero on th's lloor," declared
Mr. Morgan defiantly, "responsible

lie proceeded to argue against tho
tvisltlon taken by Mr. Hill, which
brought that senator to Ills feet to

It is within the power of the presiding
olllcer (in the absence of express .mlos
to the contrary) to determine tho
presence of a quorum. My second
proposition is that thoro is no rulo of

Mr. Hill sa(d !;c hud not expected to

.Mr. Hill then paid his respects to
Mr. Morgi.11. ' it was true," Mr. Mill
buid, "(here were polititiuus in Now
York, lfu supposed there were no
politicians In Alabama. They were
all statesmen from the lountry " Mr
Morgan had spokui of his life-long
devotion to the constitution- "1 sup

Mr. Sherman, Repnb'ican of Ohio
then addressed the senate, lie said
the rules of the senate were tnutk to
expedite public business In an orderly,
proper manner, und their object was
to enable the senate to legislate.
While that was the primary object of
ttllrules.it was equally important to
give tho minority full und frco op
portunity of debate Put mh.ii the
rules were used by tho minority to
obstruct legislation those rules should
at onco be altered Wh-nevpr a
minority used means of obstruction
unduly it created a revolution.
Mr. Sherman said the obsttuctlve
methods which had been pursucit in
the last two mouth had gone fnr
beyond anything ho had ever wit
nessed lu his senatorial experience.
In fact obstructive measures had been
res .r'.cd to which had never been
Invoked since tho senate was first'
If that continued, the senate would
no longer command the respect of act

Americans were men of notion in all
departments of action, lie said the
responsibility in tho present situation
rested upon the Democratic f-enutoru.
It was said they could not agree. Ho

Mr. Mills, Democrat, of Texas in a
long speech took the position that Mr.
Shernriii had shot to tho mark when
he said the responsibility rested upon
the Democratic party.
Mr. Itutlcr, Democrat, of South Car
olina Inquired whether Mr. Mills
would particinate lu ami be bound by
u caucus of Democratic senators.
Itefore Mr. Mills could answer the
question Mr. Hill asked Mr. Ilntler if
ho would go into a caucus of Demo
cratic senators and representatives
ami abide by the result.
Mr. Itutlcr said he wouid, and in
turn asked Mr. Hill whether he would
go into n caucus of Democrntlc sena

Mr. Hill preferred to go into a cau

Washington. Oct li The storm
which broke iu tho senate yesterday
is an index to tho feeling of Impa
tience which has b.-en gra lually ac
cumulating. Sen itor Sherman only
amplified 111 his speech what he has
been saying privately for two weeks,
and the time may bo extended further
back still inrcferin,' to Senator Hill's
utterances Mr Sherman's taunt to
the Demo -rats fou filling to agree
among themselves had the elVect of
starting a caucus among the Demo
crats. Several of t iciu have been
trying lor the pa t two or throe days
to got their fellow Democratic sena
tors to agree to submit the cnt'io ques
tion to a pirty conference and abide
by tho result of its decision, and it is
understood that Senator (ioiman,
chairman of the ciuetis, has the ques
tion under advisement.
There is a possibility of u joint
democratic caucus of both the house
mid the senate, as suggested by Sen
ator Hill und acquiesced in bv Senator
ltutler. All tho senators are beginning
to feel thai tho present strain can not
last a great while longer, and that a
desperate effort must bo made to iind
relief in some direction The silver

The situation today is this: If it

No other note of alarm has been
sounded. If tho administration can

will bo done before Saturday. The
resolution, if adopted, will bo sent to

but that the senate would refuse

Washing rox, O-t. 1 .Immediately
after the journal had been read iu the
senate yesterday morning, Mr. Dolph of
Oic'on uroso to correct It on the
ground that It was InaccuraN in full
ing to recite tho presence of Senators
Allen ami ICylo on sundry roll calls,
they having bejn present in the senate
und failed to vote. Ho said that it
had become apparent that if senators
could talk indefinitely and read from
books and papers without limit,
and if the senate was not to amend
its rules or to put a different con
struction upon them that the sen
ate must drift down the current of
endless tulle without neco upl shlng
any losult Ho believed ho could say
twenty-six Republican senators not
only fnvor.'d the repeal of the silver
purchasing clause of the Sherman act,
but would bo willing to vote toamciid
the rules so that tho majority could
limit debate, lie regarded as ridicu
lous and farcical the proedurj iu
the senate when a senator suggested
the absence of a quorum and then
upon the roll call refused to answer
to his name lie charaeterued as dis
orderly and violative of tho spirit of
the rules of tho senate the refusal of a
senator to attend when requested by
thesergeunt-at-arms; or, when he did
respond, refused to vote. That course
was bringing tho senate int disre
pute and bringing scandal upon it.
He was getting very tired of that sort
of thing an I thought it was timo the
senate should have a little biekbone.
Mr. lllll of New York said that ho
had never shared in tho criticism that
In tho absence of rules the speaker of
the house hud not tho right to tell tho
truth anil to inako tho journal refuse
to toll a lie. To hold that the speaker
had not tho right to exorcise his own
senses, iin'd when a member sat right
in front of him and did not vote to
have the journal show the fact of his
presence, tho senator was clinging to
some traditions from past ages and
there wus 1.0 sense iu it, there was no
reason for it und never 'hud been.
Theie was no harm In what was pro
posed to be done. The rights of no
ono woum 00 invaded. Tlio ilutv of
senators was grcnter than that of
merely remaining in their seats. It
was their duty to take part in tho
transaction of business.
Tho vice president ruled that noth
ing wos iu order at this stage except
what pertained to tho approval of tho
journal and that therefore the resolu
tion of Mr. Djlph was not iu order.
Mr Dolph then moved that tho
name of Mr. Allen be entered in con
nection with the roll call at (1:30
o'clock yesterday Ho said that he se
lected Mr. Allen, as his name appeared
in the record at the timo of the roll
call when ho took part in n colloquy.
Mr. Hill contended at great length
that the presiding oftlccr of thesenato
had the power to count a quorum.
Mr. Sherman of Ohio, took the lloor
at the conclusion of Mr. Hill's re
marks, lie said tlio senate was surely
drifting towards a change In tho rules,
but a change was not posslblo pend
