Washington, March 11.?The Republi?
can Senatorial steering committee met
this afternoon for the purpose of coming
to some conclusion, if possible, on the
questions pertaining to the Organisation
of the committees. M ore than two hours
wen- consumed in the discussion, but no
plan wns agreed upon. In addition to the
seven members of the com mit tee?Messrs.
Allison. Hale, Ahlrich, Cullom, Davis,
Carter and So wall?there were present by
invitation .v enators Mason, of Illinois:
Fairbanks, of Indiana: Foraker, of Ohio,
und Wellington, of Maryland.
The informal talk disclosed the fact
that the situation had been cautiously
discussed with .leading Democrats by in?
dividual members of the committee, from
which the posit ive convict ion w as reached
that there would be formed no effectual
combination that cculd take the organi?
zation of the committees from the Repub?
licans. It is the impression that imme?
diately after the extra session convenes
the committee vnncancies will be filled in
accordance with the existing order of
things and that this will be accomplished
without material opposition.

THE SITUATION [IMPROVING.
Athen-, March 11.?The situation here
is improving. The city is qtticttti" and
apart from occasional outbursts of en?
thusiasm on til? part of the populace,
there is very little of an exciting nature
to engage public attention.
RECEIVED WITH ENTHUSIASM.
A ml lcar Cipriani, the Italian'socialist
imitator, arrived here to day accompanied
by sixteen volunteers, for the purpose of
entering the Greek military service. The
party was met by a mob, which included
a number of student s, and were cheered
illni.ost incessantly as they marched
through the streets.
No FOREIGN LEGION.
Tlie government denies the report that
the military authorities are forming a
foreign legion. The authorities wish it
tc be understend that they do not desire
any disorderly clement or any filibusters
or adventurers in the military service, a
suflicicnt number of Greeks to light the
battles of Greece being available.

THE KING QUOTES A PRECEDENT.
Vienna, March IL?Th? Neue Erie
Presse publishes a report,of an interview
had by its correspondent in Athens with
King George of Greece. The King is
quoted as saying:
?'Creece bus done in "Crete as Austria
did in the case of Bosnia, when the Bos?
nian Christians took [refuge in Austria."
GREEK TROOPS TO REMAIN.
The King also said that the Creek
troops would remain in Crete and protect
Creeks and Turks alike. His Majesty
complained of the conduct of Sir A.
Bilotti, the I'.ritish consul at Clllica.in as?
sisting the Turks. Though Bilotti was a
British consul,he said, he was a Levantine
and more Turkish than even the Sultan
PLANS STILL INCOMPLETE.
London, March 11.? The plans of the
powers for blockading the coast of Greece
are still Incomplete and the methods to
be pursued unknown. Lord Salisbury
declines to discuss them until it shall be
shown that the negotiations, which have
been resumed with Greece, have failed
and action is taken upon the ultimatum !
of the powors. M. Hanotnux, foreign
minister of Franco, and 'the Marquis de
Riidtnl, prime minister of Italy, concur
in the view taken by Lord Salisbury ami
decline to express any opinion upon the
subject. Italy already has lifteen war?
ships in the Levant and is on the eve of
sending ten more. The Italian iron clad
Said Kgna. the largest 'warship in Italy's
navy, has arrived nr. Spe/./.ia, whore the
Italian flying squadron Is assembling.
No CONFLICT IN SIGHT
Athens, Match IL?An easier feeling
now exists in the city and the war fever is
-.lowly subsiding. Reserves continue to
arrive from thr Interior and the enthusi?
asm st.iil prevails, but at the same time
the belief that actual warfare has been
averted is becoming popular. The gov?
ernment has informed Prance and Greal
Britain that Creece is willing to place the
Greeks troops in Crete under the direc?
tion of the powers und also to abandon
her proposal for a Cretan plebiscite and
leave the Cretan chamber'of deput ies to
pronounce in favor of autonomy or union
with Greece as that liody may elect.
