Washington-, March 29. Speaker Crisp
rang the knell of the free silver movement
yesterday. He told several representa
tives that no rule for "cloture" would 1
reported unless a petition signed by a ma
jority of the Democrats of the house wa
presented asking him for such a rule. As a
number of free coinage Democrats will
not sign such a petition and as the ma
jority in favor of the Bland bill if a
direct vote were taken could be counted
on the fingers of one's hand if in ieod.
therewaiia majority at all it was evi-
sk-ut that the s;eaker's dictum was a
leath blow to the measure, and such proved
to be the cjise. After a consultation wit h
some of his supporters Bland decided to
endeavor to get the requisite number of
names to a petition. But on further con
sideration the Bland men decided that
they would withdraw the petition and
give up the fight.
Thirty-tire Opposed to Cloture."
The anti-silver men circulated the report
that thirty-five silver Democrats had re
fused to sign the petition, and this bail the
effect of keeping many of those who had
heretofore supported the bill and pro
gramme from putting their names to the
paper. The Bland men were much dis-.
couraged by this falling away in their
numbers, and it was after they began to
see how large the defection was that they
decided to withdraw the petition. Bland
said yesterday afternoon that he had given
up the fight, and would make no further
attempt to bring the bill toa vote. Speaking
forlaiatnl and the free silver men, Pierce of
Tennessee said: kVe will not push the
matter further, but will let the committee
on rules assume the responsibly for the
defeat of the bill before the people of the
Charging Crisp with Had Faith.
There is much ill feeling expressed hv
the silver men on account of Speaker
Crisp's stand, as they claim that by de
ciding against reporting a cloture rule un
less supported by a majority of his party
he has broken his word given to Bland,
Pierce, Stone of Kentucky and others.
Bland said yesterday afternoon that
Thursday night, just before he moved to
adjourn the house and thus lost the sup
port of the special order for voting on his
bill, he had a consultation with Speaker
Crisp on the best course to pursue in order
to save the bill from defeat, and that
Crisp assured him that if he moved an ad
journment the committee on rules would
bring in another special order providing
for a direct vote on the hill and pending
amendments and also a provision fur
Can't I'nderstand the Speaker.
Satisfied wit h t hisB'.andsavs he moved to
adjourn, and next day under the guidauce
and advice of the speaker drafted the resolu
tion which he introduced setting apart yes
terday for a vote on the bill, aud also pro
viding fur cloture, Crisp, assured him.
said Bland, that lie would vote for this
order in the committee on rules, and that
it would undoubtedly be brought in. In
view of these assurances Bland thinks
th.it the speaker's present "attitude is in
consistent and hard to explain, and he
says he cannot understand why Crisp
went back on the promises he gave to him
self and the other geutlemeu mentioned,
"vants His Farty Behind lliin.
When the speaker was asked concernim;
the matter he said: "It is true I have taken
the position that unless assurances are
given me that a majority of the Demo
cratic members will vote for a cloture rule
I will vote in the committee on rules
against its adoption. I think I am right
in assuming this position. I stated in cau
cus that I would not make changes in the
rules or bring in any new form of proced

THE THREATENED WAR IS OFF.
Salisbury's Keply tihen Much Satisfac
tion to the Cabinet.
Washini.TuX, March 20. The threat
ened war bet ween this country and Great
Uritniu is ell. Such was the opinion in the
senate jestenlay based on the reply of
Salisbury cabled from l-otulon. The reply
is regarded as a very graceful backdown
on the part of the British premier. Presi
dent Harrison and severul members of
his cabinet during the day considered
Lord Salisbury's reply and last evening
it was said officially that the communica
tion gives much satisfaction and gratifica
tion to this government. The document
was transmitted to the senate by the
president shortly after noon and was the
principal subject of discussion in the ex
ecutive session which followed. The
presidents response to Lord Salisbury
will be presented to the cabinet today
before it is transmitted to Sir Juli-tn
Pauncefote and may not be delivered to
to him before tomorrow.
tVUat VTas Done in the Senate.
When the senate met in executive ses
sion yesterday afternoon the Salisbury
note was read, and Sherman made another
appeal for the ratification of the treaty
without-restriction. He said that Lord
Salisbury's reply 6howed that he had re
ceded from his position, and thot the
treaty could safely be ratified without
fear that the modus Vivendi wonld not be
renewed. Then George took the floor with
a carefully prepared speech, in which he
urged the ratification of the treaty, and
was very warm in bis indorsement of
the president's course in the matter. Mor
gan and others followed in favor of ratifi
cation, and the opinion in faror thereof

Cold Kvcry Day Facts.
There is no mistake in these statements
and no exaggeration about them. It is
simply the cold, every day fact of year iu
and year out of the senstorial sessions.
Every correspondent of long service here
will confirm it. The fact is that corre
spondents universally recognize the obli
gations under which the senate officers are
to the senate and do not approach them
with forbidden questions aliout executive
proceedings. Beyond question if the sen
ate should decide to expel all who werf
disclosed by an investigation as haviuii

then call the correspondents and the lattet
should answer, the senate would almost

principal j .sints brought out were that
Kaum had borrowed money from G. X.
Lockwood, a pension attorney, who in turn
Lad obtained it from the National Metro
politan bank, as Kauin could not get the
loan there because the president, Thomp
son, was "out" with Kaum, who had " re
fused to appoint to office one of Thomp
son's proteges. There was no condition
attached to the loan except that it should
be repaid, which it was. Major Barker
denied that any discrimination was niade
in pension cases. Thomas Fawcett, a dis
