Washington, April 12. The Roach case
erne prominently to the front yesterday
(a executive session of the senate and was
the cause of some rather plain talk from
both sides of the chamber. The senate
only went into secret cession after a yea
and nay vote, in which it was developed
that the Democrats had a big majority
and enough members present, -idded to
the Republicans, to make a voting quorum.
As soon as the doors were closed the Re
publicans propounded, an inquiry as to
what the other aide meant by refusing to
permit the committee on, privileges and
elections to report the resolution relative
to the contest of Martin's seat by Ady, a
resolution that had been agreed upon in
the committee at the meeting Saturday;
and further, why they had exhibited what
appeared to be bad faith in the Roach reso
lution, a resolution which Republicans
contended had been agreed to by Demo
crats on the floor of the senate.
Republicans Say "I-ay on MicDnff."
This at once precipitated a discussion in
which it was developed that the Demo
crats were opposed to taking up the Roach
case at this time and wanted to postpone
any further action until the next session
of congress. It was declared by the Demo
cratic leaders, as bad been stated by them
before, that if the Roach case was to be
gone into there were others that should be
taken up as welL The Republicans re
torted that they were afraid of no investi
gation concerning any of their members,
but they insisted that some positive action
should be taken in this particular case.
The Democrats said that they were willing
the resolution should be modified so as to
instruct the committee to report whether
or not they bad the authority to make
an investigation concerning the previous
acts of a senator.
The Point of Friction.
But the Republicans urged that this did
not go far enough, and insisted that the
committee should be still further author
ized to go ahead and make the investiga
tion if they found they had the authority.
It was this counter proposition that the
Democrats opposed, and after a long dis
cussion of the two views so vehemently
adhered to by the respective sides the
question was laid aside without any definite
action being taken. The Martin case was
given its share of the debate, the Republic
ans contending that the committee on priv
ileges and elections should report the
resolution as adopted at its meeting, and
that the work contemplated under the
resolution should be prosecuted during the
recess of the senate.
Eckels Reported Favorably.
The nomination of Kckelstobe comptrol
ler of the currency was reported favorably,
but confirmation did not follow, it going
over for a day under the rules, there being
an objection to its present conderation.
This objection found expression in some
very caustic remarks by Republican sena
tors in regard to what they called lack of
wisdom manifested in the selection for so
important an office of a man who by his
own admission knew absolutely nothing
of the business of banking.

A number of important nominations

Cleveland Compliments Sir Jallan.
President Cleveland, in replying to the
ambassador, expressed the satisfaction
with which the nation interpreted the ac
tion of the queen In conferring upon her
representative at Washington the highest,
rank known to the diplomatic intercourse
of nations, as a marked proof of the friendly
consideration that tended to draw into the
closest amity two peoples having common
ties of blood, of speech, and of history. In
offering to Sir Julian his personal congrat
ulations the president also desired him to
convey to the queen the heartfelt wishes of
the people of the United States for her
welfare and for the continued prosperity
and peace of the British people.
