Wasiiinoton, Feb. :). The Demo
cratic cuueas on silver which was tu
have been called Friday evening next at
the request of anti-silver men has been
abandoned for the present.
Mr. Harer of Ohio, who was the
lending spirit circulating tho cull Tues
day,said: "I decided not to push thosilvei
caucus for the reason that Democratic
opinion is changing very rapidly, not
only upon tho wisdom of passing a silver
bill, but upon the merits of tho question.
While last Thursday nine out of ten
men would have predicted that a free
silver bill would pass the house, toduy
it is the opinion that no bill for free
aud unlimited coinage will ever pass tho
senate. Leading German papers in tho
United States have served notice upon
ns that the German voto in a body will
leave us on that issue and go to the Re
publicans altogether. The question pre
sents danger not before considered and
from this time on the active opposition
of Democratic newspapers will proba
sriiiitc and l'lee Coinage.
Wasmnhton, Feb. a. The senate
committee on finance has resolved to
grapple with the subject of the freo coin
age of silver. At a meeting of the com
mittee this morning was a discussion of
the matter, and it was decided that tho
issue had better be met at once, so that
the committee will not be charged with
binothering a bill relating to freo coin
age. Accordingly, it was resolved that
at a meeting nest Tuesday Air. Stewart's
free coinage bill will be taken up and
reported to the senate. There is little
doubt as to tho natnre pf the report, for
the discussion this morning showed that
two Democratic senators would probably
join with the Republican majority in
recommending adverse action upon tho
A Claim lor Indemnity.
Washington, Feb. 11. W. W.
Kerr, late assistant attorney gen
eral of the United States, has
presented at tho department of
state a claim J'or indemnity from the
Chilean government for the murder of
Riggin, one of the Baltimore's sailors, at
utunh llnkrtnti Kriiilutlon.
Washington, Feb. :i. Mr. Watson's
motion calling tor an investigation of
the Pinkerton system, which caused con
siderable agitation, especially in Farm
ers' Alliance circles, has, at the request
of Mr. Oates, chairman of the sub-com-
mittee which reported the resolution ad
versely .to the judiciary-committee of tho
house, been recommitted to the sub
committee for further action. Mr.
Oates says he has been going slow in tho
matter for the rensnu that he wishes to
ascertain whether or not congress has
jurisdiction. If from the nature of tho
corporation it should be found that con
gress can legislate with lespect to tho
Pinkerton system and that it is not a
matter with which states and munici
palities alone can deal, lie says there
may be reason to recommend investigift
tiou, but unless congress has the power
to legislate and remedy the abuses it
may laid to exist it was not its business
to make an in vestigation. Mr. Oates
naked Mr. Watson to produce the charter
of the Pinkerton corporation, but that
gentleman was unable to do so. Mr.
Oates has since obtained a copy of tho
charter and it is now before the com
mittee for examination.

Mr. Palmer introduced a joint lesolu

Tho bill passed to increase the endow

and agricultural and mechanical col

Louisiana, granting 1)2,100 acres of pub
lic lauds in Louisiana.
The senate went into executive session
and then adjourned.
Wasiiinoton, Feb. :t. The house is
being treated to daily reminders of tho
Hoar-Morse rivalry in the state of Mass
achusetts. Mr. Hoar, although a Dem
ocrat, is a son of the distinguished at
torney general of the Grant administra
tion and a nephew of the present sena
tor. That a member of such a dis
tinguished Republican family should bo
a Democrat is an oll'enso which Mr.
Hoar insists has never been quite for
given by the leading Republicans and is
the cause of bomewhat frequent assaults
made upon him. Scarcely had tho pro
ceedings of yesterday been rend from the
congressional record by tho members of
the house before Mr. Morse arose to a
question of privilege and rebuked Mr.
Hoar for presuming to take from tht
public printer a record of a manu
script sjieech pieviously made by Mr.
There was a dead silence for a ininutt
as the house awaited the reply by Mr.
"I think,-Mr. Speaker," ho said, "that
the gentleman from Massachusetts has-
been advertised enough." With that
Hoar took his seat.
Tho consideration of the rules was
then resumed and Mr. Hurrows' amend
ment, giving tho speaker the right t
count a quorum, was rejected.
Mr. Reed offered an auieiidmeut pro
viding that whenever a quorum fails to
voto on a question there' shall bo a call
of the hoti'-o and the yeas and nays shall
at the saute time be ordered. As each
member answers to his Uimie ho shall
voto on yeas and nays. SV. Reed stated
tho amendment was similar to one of
fered some years ago by John Randolph
Mr. Mills of Texas said it showed an
adhrenco of the Democratic party to
freedom that so great a man as Tucker
could not induce it to depart from the
fundamental principles of representa
