Democracy to Organize the Sen

EEPUBLICAKS TO TAKE BACK SEATS
No Opposition to Martin Vnlm It Comes
from Kansas Cleveland's Cabinet Con
finned In Fifteen Minutes A Resolution
to Change Inauguration Iy to April 30

The President Invited to the World's
Washington-, March 7. The Republican
cancas yesterday was well attended, and
was presided over by Sherman. Neither
Stewart nor Peffer was present, although
they were given to understand that they
would be welcome. The Republicansrecogr
nizedthe fact that they were in the minor
ity, and discussed the line of policy that
should be pursued in the future. This dis
cussion was in the most general terms,
however, and not directed to any one mat
ter In particular. There was no attempt to
interfere with the reorganization of the
senate by the Democrats, the Republicans
recognizing that such action could result
in nothing but antagonisms that would
prove futile and decrease the effective work
of a vigorous and alert minority.
The Case of Martin ot Kansas.
In the case of Martin of Kansas, who
was sworn in, the Republican members of
the committee on privileges and elections
conferred with the Democratic members
and came to the conclusion that Martin
was, on the face of his credentials, entitled
to his seat The question of legality of the
certificate was a matter that could he
opened at any time, and this agreement
accounts for the absence of any protest
against Martin performing the functions
of a senator. The Republicans at the cau
cus decided that the question whether
Martin's seat should or shonld not be con
tested, was one that must be decided by
the Republicans of Kansas. If they insist
upon an investigation into the matter the
Republicans will conduct such an inquiry
in the senate; but, on other hand, if the
members of the party in the state from
which Martin comes are content, no other
steps will be taken in the senate. It is not
thought by the Republican senators that
should they decide to institute an inquiry,
the Democrats will offer any resistance.
Democrats May Organize at Once.
Judging by the expressions civen out by
leading members of the Democratic party
there will not be much delay in the elec
tion of the officers of the senate, although
this may occasion a protracted contest.
It is the general opinion that before the
extra session of tbe senate adjourns the
full organization will be effected and the
Democrats will be in power with all that
the word implies. When the senate was
called together in extra session in July,
1801, by Lincoln the Republicans organ
ized the body and maintained their organ
ization until the called session in March,
FIRST WORK OF THE NEW SENATE.
The Galleries Crowded and Stevenson Ap
plauded Cabinet Confirmed.
Washikgtos, March 7. The crowds
which packed the senate galleries yester
day, and the multitude of people that
surged through the corridors and on tbe
staircases of the Capitol furnished evidence
that many thousands of strangers who had
come to Washington to witness the inau
gural ceremonies had not yet left the city
and were determined to enjoy as much of
the show as might still be presented. When
Vice President Stevenson made his appear
ance in company with the Rev. Mr. But
ler, chaplain of the senate, tbe spectators
In the galleries could not restrain their
impatient enthusiasm and broke iuto a
round of handclapping.
Cabinet Nominations Beeelved.

been appointed to wait upon the president
of the United States they had performed ,
that dntv and had Imin rwniMtwl K tKQ
president to inform the senate that he
would communicate immediately in writ
ing. Immediately afterwards Mr. Pruden,
one of the president's secretaries, appeared
and delivered a message from the president
of the United States transmitting the cabi
net nominations and thereupon the senate
went into executive session.
Wolcott Blocks Call Again.
The doors had been closed about fifteen
minutes, and when they were reopened,
the cabinet having been in the meantime
unanimously confirmed, Call introduced
s resolution which he had offered last ses
sion in relation to the public lands in Flor
ida and to the interference of railway com
panies in that state with the election of
senators, but objection was made by Wol
cott and the resolution went over without
action. Sherman said that he desired to
Introduce joint resolution to amend the
Change In Inauguration Day.
The joint resolution was read. It pro
p oses that the terms of office of president
and vice president of the Fifty-fourth con
gress shall continue until noon of the 30th
of April, 1897; that the senators whose
terms would expire on the 4th of March,
1897, shrll continue in office until noon of
the 30th of April, and that that time shall
hereafter be substituted for the 4th of
March as the commencement and termina
tion of the official terms of the president,
rice president, senators, and representa
tives in congress. The joint resolution was
laid on the table, and then the senate ad
journed until Thursday.
THE INAUGURAL FIREWORKS.
Windup of the Festivities with Illumina
tions and Pyrotechnics.
Washington, March 7. Incidental to
the inauguration festivities was the illumi
nation of 'the Capitol building and Penn
sylvania avenue, and the display of fire-
works on tne monument grounds last
night. Th.we were to have taken place
Saturday night, but owing to the inclement
weather were postponed. Shortly after
mgnt set in people swarmed to Penusyl
vania avenue from all parts of the city. It
was with great difficulty that the cable
ears and ot ler vehicles were moved. Xine
slectricsuns placed ou stands twelve feet
high iu f rent of the Capitol illuminated
that buildii g.
Brill I nt Scene On the Avenue.
The effect was very fiue and the struc
ture was visible miles away. The lighting
of the .avenue was effected by forty union
Illuminator and these supplemented by
revolving suns at the treasury department
compieteu a orinmnt scene. The best en
tertainuieat of the tveninsj was tl o pyro
technical display 'in the monument
grounds, here for about an hour the
crowds were treated to a perfect fusillade
or explosives followine each other in ranid
succession and including all the numerous
devices known to the art.
Washington, Jackson and Columbus.
There were a half dozen or more set fig
ures in the t isplay, chief of which were the
following: George Washington, eques
trian statui', 40x40 feet in size; Andrew
Jackson, equestrian statue, of similar size,
and Columbus. There were two others,
however, thut created more than the usual
amount of applause and enthusiasm. These
were devices with the portraits of Harri
son and Morton, and Cleveland and Ste
venson, tbe latter of which bore tbe motto:
Public OlTu Is a Public trust."
INVITED TO THE WORLD'S FAIR.
Cleveland Seems to Think His Presence
Washington, March ".President Cleve
land's first official invitation was extended
to him yestei-day afternoon. It came from
the Worid's fair commissioners and di
rectors and v as presented according to pre
vious engage nnent in the cabinet room at
10 o'clock. There were present from the
committee or. public ceremonies P. A. B.
Widener, chairman; B. B. Sraalley, V. D.
Groner, Jan es ITodges, A. T. Ewine, T.
W. Palmer, und John T. Dickinson. From

J. T. Harris and R. E. Goodel. General

May At tend as a Public Duty.
The president asked a great many ques
tions as to ho long he would be expected
to stay at Chicago, eta, after P. B. A.
Widener had formally presented the invi
tation. "If I go," he said, 'it will be be
cause I deem it a public duty which I
ought to discharge. At that time, as you
gentlemen are doubless aware, there will
be many matters of public importance to
demand my j resetice here." He said he
would consider the matter and decide in a
day or two. The invitation to the presi
dent is on vellum and is a work of art.
RIOTING STRIKERS GO ACQUIT.
The Casur d'Alene Strikers Win Before
the Supreme Court.
Washixgto-;, March 7. In an opinion
delivered by Justice Blatchford for Justice
Fuller in the tase of George A. Pettibone
and other striking Coeur d'Alene miners in
Idaho against the United States the court
decided in favor of the miners and directed
that the indictment against them be
quashed. These cases grow out of the
riots at the Warden mines. The court
thew granted injunctions restraining the
strikers from interfering with the men and
it is alleged that Pet ii bone and others con
pired to violite the laws of the United
States. The court holds that the indict
ment under which they were convicted on
this charge is defective in that it was not
shown that the men had knowledge of the
order of the court. It is therefore directed
that the men be discharged. Justices
Brown and Brvwster dissenting.
Lawler's Remarkable Petition.
Washisgto .March 7. Ex-Congressman
Lawler called at the White House yester
day to pay his respects to President Cleve
land. He did not mention the post office,
but the presi lent evidently had it in his
mind for he inquired of Lawler if he
would remain here a few days, to which
Lawler replied that he would. Lawler re
ceived a telegram yesterday indicating
that the signatures to his petition now
reach 64,491, t nd the post office officials
ay frankly th.it such a petition for indi
vidual appointment was never before
heard of here. Lawler will remain here
otne time, probably until the matter is
Went te Ttalt the Ball Boom.
WASUIXGTOS, March 7. That everybody
did not attend ' he inaugural ball Saturday
night was evident yesterday when the
crowd poured iirto the pension building to
see the decorations and listen to a concert
by the Marine band. The concert began at
10 o'clock in t ho presence of a large audi
ence. After strolling about and seeing the
decorations they sat down and enjoyed the
fine programme which Professor Fanciulli
and his corps of musicians had prepared
for their entertainment. In tbe afternoon
there was another concert, and in the
evening a third.
Trying to Force Carlisle's Hand.
Washington, March 7. Information
has reached the treasury department that
about 11,500,000 of gold will be exported
to Europe todaj. This gold, it is under
stood, goes to Austria. The treasury offi
cials see in this renewed export of gold an
effort on the pait of New York bankers to
force the incoming secretary of the treas
ury to define hit position. The free gold
in the treasury is slightly in excess of 4,
00,000. Washington, March 7.-W. E. Sim

Assistant Cot imissioner Frothingham
have sent their resignations to the presi
dent to take eff.-ct March 81, or whenever,

the officers of every railroad in the United

for this reason that it was accepted by the
general superintendents of each road.
A Reply Expected Today.
The superintendent have referred the
communication to the generril manaser.
The general managers' n$sociation held a
short meeting yesterday afternoon, intend
ing to take some action upon the matter,
but the subject was of too serious moment
to be decides! hastily, so ihey adjourned
to meet today, when an auswer will be
given to the switchmen.
Something That Has Iteen Looked For.
This demand of the switchmen for an
increase in wages has been expected for
some time by the railroads throughout the
country. At the iecrnt meeting of the
switcbnten's -Mutual Aid association in
this city each roadcenrenn in Chicago
was represented and special grievance com
mittees were delegated to present the
quests to the management of their respec
tive roads. Nothing further will be done in
the matter of a strike or the making of fur
ther overtures until the in.tnacetnent of
each road shall have made its answer to
Will (live 'Em Plenty r Time.
The switchmeu say that wherever non
union men are employed they will receive
the same scale as the members of the as
sociation. Another feature of the request
is mat a lull day a time be guaranteed to a
crew, day or tiibt, which may be called to
do any yard service. The switchmen say
i ney do not intend to precipitate a strike

DO sOT EXPECT A STRIKE.
by Hie Men Are Asking More Wage
Managers Nou-l ommittal.
Secretary Simsrott, of ths switchmen's
association, says the men do net wish or
ex;.-a n .-trike. -We hope that our peti
tion for an advance of 5 cents in wages
will lie gniitrd by the general managers.
The switihmeti have not had an advance in

th,tt confront us are totally different. If
tbe su-itcu men's duties were the same now

ceni. more work to be done today by the
men. r.tigines uave increased M per cent.
und cars PM per cent., and the increase of
danger is commensurate with those figures.
Le Wages Than Hod Carriers.
"Switchmen have to work anywhere from
t-n to fourteen hours a day in all kinds of
weather, and iLjy -re paid lower wages
than hod carriers. I do not think that there
will Ije a strike. We have presented our
petition n p fair and honest way, and I am
sure the 'vnerai managers will grant the
Another officer of the association said it
was unjust to the switchmeu to say that
they were taking advantage of the World's
fair to wnug from the roads an advance by
tne tnreat ot an immediate strike.
What tbe Men Will Do.
"We will not lay ourselves ODen to nub-
lie ceuuve by such tactics," said he. "Wi
will simply go ahead with our work, al
lowing the officials plenty of time to make
their reply. The rt piles, favorable or un-
lavoraUie. will be laid before the switch
men in meeting assembled, according to
the laws of onr organization. Whatever
action is theu decided upon will be carried
out to the leiter.""
The Knada Will All Combine.
The general manatrers of the different
roads who have received the petition re
fused at present to say anything upon the
matter as to what answer they will give.
General Manager St. John, of the hock
Island road, who is president of the general
managers asMt iatiun, said last night that
all of the roads would combine in this
trouble. What they decided upon would
be carried out by each road. The situation
may develop iuto a serious state of affairs.
There are 2,000 switchmen employed by
tue ainereut roads in this city.
