Waphinoton, May 14. Itlooks now ns
it no further action would be taken on the
army bill until the legislative bill disposed
of, and as there are said to l.e a dozen sen
ators who desire to speak on it, it will
hardly get to the president this week.
Some of the members of tho appropriations
committee have endeavored to have Chair
man Atkins call the committee together
and take some action on the army bill but
out of deference to Senator Thurman, who is
chairman of the joint caucus committee,
and who desires that nothing shall lie done
nt present in the matter, Atkins declines
to move. It is pretty safe to predict that
if they can get it up in the committee it
will be reported to the house free from auy
side issues, and there will be found enough
neiuociam who wm vnte lor it to pass It.
Thurman has been heard to say quite re
cently that supplies must he voted iu any
event, and Atkins entertains similar scuti-
nients, and that this feeling is now shared
in by many who a short time since held to
opposite views is certain. It is noticeable
also, that of late no one talks of going home
and leaving the government iinnrm-;,i,i
for, while a short time siuce such utterances
were quite fashionable. It is said the joint
caucus committee will meet for conference
to-morrow, but the programme, if any is
agreed on, will probably not be submitted
to a caucus before Saturday, and probably
not so soon.
THE SILVER RILL.
The house listened to speeches on the sil
ver bill to-day from Fort, of Illinois, f who
said he could not support it in its present
sliape, and General Ewing, the father of tho
Ohio idea, who made what was in some
respects tho ablest speech vet
made tor the bill. Serious
llOUbtS are now Pnrnrr.-iinn,! Ito .,
age by those who a few days since regarded
it as certain to go through. Thu New
ork, Maryland and Pennsylvania Demo-
crats are nearly solid against it, and Frank
Hurd, of Ohio, estimates that there arc
twenty-live Democrats who will vote
against it, while it is thought there aio not
more than nino or ten Republicans who will
support it iu its present shape, so that tho
chances of its success are, to say the least,
precarious. Lnless it derelopes additional
strength to-morrow nnd the opponents be
come fearful oi its passage, there will be n
vote taken on it to-morrow.
Senator Keratin spoko for three hours on

against the election law as administered un-
