Washington, Dec. 2. There w.19 a business-like
bust!o about the headquarters
of the various speakership i-a ml iiia.es
yesterday. New members were arriving
constantly and a majority of them went
to the headquarters of the candidates soon
after they reached the city. The Metro
politan hotel, where Crisp and McMillin
are regularly established autl wher
has a branch headquarters, was the scene
f the liveliest interest, and although
there were no developments of a definite
ft it 11 re gossip was plentiful and every
body seemed happy. Mills spent most of
the day at the Metropolitan, having es
pecially transferred his headquarters
from Williard's hotel.
Mill Men from Massnrliusett.
Representatives Sherman Hoar and
O'orge F. Williams, of Massachusetts,
were very prominent bronnd the room oc
cupied by Mills, and announced them
selves as for the Texan first, last, and all
the time. Representative O'Neill, another
Massachusetts Democrat, announced him
aslf for Crisp. There is by no means a
unanimity of opinion among the fourteen
members of the New England Democratic
delegation as to a candidate, and a meet
ing of the members will be held at the
residence of Representative Andrew to
night for consultation as to the best policy
for the delegation to pursue in the con
test. New England Not To He Solid.
It is believed that there will be no agree
ment to cast a solid vote for any one can
didate. Springer at the National and
Hatch at Willards did not lack for com
ttany during the day. Tbey had many
visitors, and confidence whs expressed by
their adherents equal to that of the Mi'. Is,
Crisp and McMillin men. It is said that
Mr. Springer has made a favorable im
pression on several New England mem
bers, and that he is their first choice.
Hatch Defines His I'ooition.
Hatch of Missouri defines his position
on the speakership contest in unmistaka
ble terms. He says:
I have received confidential assurances from
a latye number of coiiKreKwmen whose names,
of course, I don't think it politic at this time
to disclose. These men are for various rea.
eons compelled to vote for others on the first
j ballot, but will eventually vote for me. I
don't regard myself as a quarter horse in this
race. On the first ballot I expect to be among
the leaders, but in my opinion it will not be
the first or second ballot that will settle this
matter. When the final one comes 1 believe
that if any one is ahead of me he will only win
by a neck.
The Crisp Men Dead Cartaln.
The Crisp folks say that tbey feel ab
solutely sure of Crisp's election, and that
what tbey are fighting for is nomination
on the first ballot. Estimates giving the
names place bis vote at over 100 on the
first ballot. Within twenty-four hours
fourteen names have been taken from the
doubtful list ad put upon the list of those
counted as absolutely sure. They say that
they fear no combination against Crisp,
(or the reason that no other candidates
can withdraw without releasing a large
number of votes which will come over to
J"." ?"ot,'ln, utJ3ws Wood.
Qae ol the candidates who refrains per
syialfy from giving any figures Is Mills.
All through the day and some distance
Into the night Mills toils incessantly, ar
tJues without wearying, and hopes contin-HldlS-
Jlnt.be pever gives any news away.
jHe ieefls the figures to himself. In some
Vjdeflnjtg wav Mills' friends give forth
the Impression that be is far in advane
of all cbmpeCTlors,
. Jlew the Outsiders f igure,
''b.ere is considerable figuring being
don$ t7 outsiders on the contest. The
greatest number of these estimates ap-
ear to place Crisp Id the leaa, though
one probably give him what his friends
aim for faint as sure, ana they vary Con
siderably, New York estimates put Mills
and Springer close together, some giving
Kpringer the lead, but more giving Mills
n slight advantage. The claims of Mills)
friends, however, put Mills and. Crisp
closer together, with Mills In the lead,
while the claims of the friends of Crisp
put the Georgian far in advance of any
Summary of the Situation.
' The fact seems to be that the race is be
'tween Mills and Crisp.- They have the
bulk of the votes divided in some propor
tion between tuem now and will have
them iu the caucus on the first ballot, and
linger. The others Springer and Mo
'Alillin and Hatch are' hoping to gather
in the men who get tired in case a dead
lock between Mills and Crisp occurs.
Each of the three named has a few votes
to start on Springer having certainly the
most and their hopes are based on what
they can get when the Mills and Crip
mu begin to fall to pieces.

SUPREME COURT TARIFF STRAWS.
Onestious Asked the Connsel indicate
Hew the 4 list ires Stand.
WASiriiOTOX, Dec. 2. The question
with whii:h the justices of the supreme
court int rrupted counsel who were ar
guing the unconstitutionality of the Mc
Kinley bill Monday are regarded as indi
cating a t osufa attitude on the part of
the court to the position assumed by
counsel. Chief Justice Fuller interrupt
ed Mr. W. Wickham Smith, of New York,
to inquire whether there was any proof
in the record that his client had paid out
any mouty on account of the sugar boun
ty clause of which they complained. Jus
tice Ciray, with equal significance, in
quired whether the contention was that
the whole act was unconstitutional be
cause of this one bonnty clause.
Bradley' Pointed Interrogation.
Justice Bradley still more pointedly
asked of Mr. Bliss, of Chicago, in respect
to the accidental omission of the tobacco
rebate clause: "Your position, then, is
that wherever an enrolling clerk by acci
dent or by fraud, happens to omit a sec
tion of . law, althongh that law is re-
fiorted to the president and signed as a
aw, it is voidj" When M& Biiss replied
in the affirmative it was evident that Jus
tice Brad ey did not agree with him. So
licitor General Taft replied yestorday to
the argue lents of the importers' counsel
Monday. He contended that the bounty
and recip-ocity clauses were constitution
al, and that if they were not, that fact did
not inval. dale the whole bill; neither did
the omission of the tobacco rebate sec
tion. Cooler's l ight Against Itanm.

Had No Motive for the Crime.
He stated that Tracy, who gave the in
formation that led to the arrests, told
him that be should accompany him down
to McKibben's on a particular evening,
where they would have a secret meeting
and arrange their plans. Tho meeting
was held, Snd it was then the buildings
of Hall and Robertson were to have been
destroyed. When asked why he agreed
to destroy this property he replied that,
bs for himself, ho could assign no reason.
He.assi-ntitl. through persuasion, without
any motive. McKibben hid said that Rob

bring him down to a level with them.
Wanted to Level Things Down.
Calviu Tracy, when asked to state what
object tie parlies had in burning the
building, replied that it was in order to
reduce those possessing considerable
wealth and others in sympathy with cor
porations as against laborers to their
level. Lordon has furnished bail aud is

even though he should furnish bail, at his
request he was conveyed in a carriage

No opportunity was presented for an in

was not favorable for an interview. Word
has been received here from Centralia snd
Olin that it would lie dangerous for Mc
Kiblien to remain at Sandoval. Sympathy
