Decided at Next Meeting-
Washington City, July 20. The Re
publican members of the senate held a
caucus last might in the senate chamber,
lasting a little more than two hours, for
the dlacuasion of the order of business in
the senate. The caucus committee ap
pointed to formulate some change in the
rules under which business can be expe
dited was not prepared to make a report.
Hoar, tbe chairman of the committee on
privileges and elections, stated that the
Republican members of tbe committee had
under consideration the Lodge election
bill passed by the house, and bad modified
it in some material features, but had not
concluded the discussion of the bill. Ha
said that prints ofthe bill as modified had
been distributed among the Republican
senators, and that the Republican mem
bers of the committee were anxious to
have their colleagues make any sugges
tions that occurred to them for the fur
ther modification ofthe bill.
Talked Over the Order of Bnalneaa.
The order of business was then dis
cussed, the question at issue being whether
the caucus should agree to press the con
sideration of the election bill directly after
the passage of the tariff bill, or should al
low any other bnsiness to intervene. Sev
eral senators expressed a disposition to
oppose tbe immediate consideration of the
election bill in favor of other measures in
which they had a greater interest, among
these measures being the bill to transfer
the revenue marine to the navy depart
ment, the bill for the creation of a land
sourt, etc As there was little more than
a quorum of the Republican senators pres
ent, it was thought advisable to take no

It was agreed, however, to press the con
sideration ofthe tariff bill, and a resolu
tion was adopted providing for the meet
ing of tbe senate at 10 o clock each morn
ing, beginning to-morrow, the tariff bill
to be taken up immediately after the
morning business. Opinions expressed as
to tbe possibility of passing the tariff bill
in the near future differed. Tbe average
estimate of time was four weeks, and the
general impression seemed to be that tbe
bill would not be completed until Sept. L
