Washington, March 18. The Demo
cratic caucus committee resumed its la
bors yesterday morning and whatever has
leen accomplished will be reported to the
full caucus which will be called for Tues
day morning of next week. It appears
from the statement of the members of this
committee that the subject of the reorgani
zation of executive oflicers of the sanate
has not been taKen up, but that the com
mittee has been discussing matters con
nected with the general policy of the par
ty, or, as one member of the committee
put it, '"Things of vastly more importance
than a few officials."
Vitl an Kve to Kronomy.
The Democratic caucus committee dar
ing Us session went carettuiy over me use
of employes of the senate and the compen
sation now being drawn , by varioun
officials of high and low degree. It looks
as if there was a desire to equalize the sal
aries paid.with the'possibility of reductions
here and there, and also to see that in the
parceling out of places some attention is
paid to geographical distribution. All
this is preliminary to the greater question
whether or not the senate shall be reor
ganized entirely at this session. The indi
cations point to a disagreement on this
point in any report that may be made to
Cullers at the White House.
There was no diminution of the rush to
the White House yesterday. J. C. Don
nelly, of Woodstock, Ills., and James
Quinlan, of Waukegan, Ills., went with
Senator Talnier to press their respective
claims for United States marshal for the
northern Illinois district and for post
master of Waukegan. With Representa
tive Eynum was S. W. Ralston, of
Lebanon, Ind., a candidate for the internal
revenue collectorship for the Seventh dis
trict. Bynum also presented the name of
Joshua Jump, of Terre Haute, who wants
the internal revenue collectorship for the
Terre Haixte district. Representative Mar
tin, of Indiana, introduced Jervin Heaff,
of Peru, who is after the Havana con
sulate. Shrewd Frank Lawler, of Chicago.
Frank Liawler did not call on the presi

who received him very cordially. After hi3

up soon. Not that I am especially impa
tient, "he added, "for I spent months in the

Washington', March IS. The statement
in Xew York papers yesterday that a pro
test numerously signed by prominent citi
zens against the consummation of the ex
tradition treaty with Russia would be
sent to Secretary Gresham was shown to
the secretary yesterday. He said he had
not received the protest, and in reply to
a question whether it would avail any
thing, said he thought not. He had never
heard of the withdrawal of a treaty by
either party after it had been ratified and
pending exchange of ratifications. This is
the position the Russian extradition treaty
Objections of the Objector.
' The people who object to the treaty do
so on the ground that, as they allege, the
treaty provides for the extradition of any
one who belongs to a society having for its
end the assassination of the czar, or any
lerson who gives shelter to such a one, or
the near relatives of such a one. The treaty
actually says: "An .-ft tempt upon the life
of the head of either goveroment, or against
that of any member of his family, when
such an attetipt comprises an act either of
murder or assassinat-ou or of poisoning,
fchall not be considered a political offense
or an act connected with such an ollense."
St. Patrick's Iay.
Chicago, March IS. St, Patrick's day
was observed here by a big parade as well
as the usual church services. At Xcw York

Celebrations were quite general in cities

Teller Makes Some Comments on the Con
Washington, March 18. Senator Teller,
who has already given notice of his inten
tion to take steps to cause the international
monetary conference to reconvene at Brus
sels, was asked yesterday for his opinion
respecting the declaration of the chancellor
of the exchequer in t he house of commons
Thursday that the British delegates would
be instructed to oppose every bi
metallic scheme presented at the
conference. The senator said the decla
ration meant that the Great Britain
would absolutely oppose free coinage of sil
ver on terms of equality with gold. That
was what she had always done and nobody
expected her to do any more at this time.
Object of the Conference.
But there was nothing iu this position
Irreconcilable with the attainment of the
object of the conference, namely, the ex
tended use of silver as a noney metal.
In fact ther3 was evidence to show that
Great Britain really desired to do some
thing in that direction. Her financiers re
alized the necessity for some palliative
measures something to prevent the fur
ther depreciation of silver, which if con
tinued must result in the total destruction
of the present monetary system. If that
occurred the future of culver would be as
sured, but nobody wished to adopt such a
heroic measure to achieve the desired re
sult. He bad no doubt that England would
be willing to support a reasonable proposi
tion that was more practicable than the
