The absence of Senator Conkling

few days ago. It is also believed

A "STALWART" METHOD
of expressing disgust at the policy oi

A BOMB SHELL BURST
in the senate soon after it was called

New York , and requested that the
announcemcut of the fact be formally

ment was received by the senators c
present with genuine surprise , but the
senate immediately.proceeded to the
transaction of routine business , and at
*
12:25 o'clock went into executive ses
sion ,
j-
The following was the brief antl
nouncement of the senator :

A HUM OF SURPRISED a
At once there was a hum of surprise
all about'tho chamber. The democrats
looked anxiously at each , other and
smiled. The republicans tried to be
calm , but more than one showed in
tense interest in what would follow.
The * . vice-president then handed
another communication to the clerk ,
who read AS follows :

THOMAS C > PLATT.
To add to the sensation of the mo
ment , it gained circulation thatjtho
Vice President lias also resigned , but of
this was speedily squashed , that
official occupying the chair at the
time. Neither Senators Conkling or
Platt have been seen at the Capitol
to-day and are not now at
their residences. Senator Mahone
also absent from the senate. The
democrats are hailing the fiasco with
delight , but not so much since it leaves
them a temporary majority , as that it
seems to presage an inevitable spli
in the opposition. What will be done
in the senate now cannot be conjee
tured. * ;

CHICAGO , May 16 10 p. m. The
Evening ] News' Washington special ,
says : It has leaked out"that the resig

represent the republican sentiment-of
New York with regard to Judge
Robertson ] , and to sustain this view ic
cites the endorsement which the leg
islature of New ork gave Judge
Robertson immediately after his nom
ination. i The president has said tint
if i there was any way of testing the senti
ment of New York republicans and it
was found to be against Judge Robert
son , he would withdraw his name.
Tliis test will be made upon the quc >
tion of the election of the successors
of Conkling and Platt. Should the
latter be elected it will decide the con
troversy and Judge Robertson's
be withdrawn.
HOW THE PRESIDENT RECEIVED THE
NEWtS.
WASHINGTON , May 17 1 a. m.
Half an hour after the letters of Sen
ators Conkling and Platt were read to
the senate , the news was communi
cated to the president. He was sil
ing at his table in the executive oftic.
when one of his secretaries rushed ia ja'
from the telegraph clerk's desk an 1
excitedly told him that the pperat <
had overheard a dispatch saying tha. ,
the ] New York senators had resigned.
The president was seized with the same
feeling < of stupefication and astonish
ment that had effected all others who
had heard the news. Rousing.himself
he exclaimed : "I don't believe it. "
The first thing the president did after
hearing a verification of the news , waste
to dispatch a messenger to the state
department and request the presence
of ; Blaine at the White House. Blaine
went at once and they'then held a
caucus ; on the situation , Messengers
were dispatched instanter to ascertain ni
the truth or falsity of the report.
When the news was confirmed the "
White House was in a state of excite tl
ment , such as never was never known C
there before. President Garflold
seemed to be astonished. He appeared sow
to labor under extreme excitement w
and paced up and down in his office TVIc
unable : to control Jus feelings. As c
soon as the resignations wore announc J
ed , stories began to circulate that ishn
Postmaster-General James had sent in , hn
his resignation also , and on the streets 1"
that Vice-Presi- fir
rumors soon spread - -
dent < Arthur snd Attorney-General
MeVeajjh w ould also resign , but they 10
nil proved to bu unfounded. 113
JOHN KELLY BXTB SSSSS IHMSEWr * " pc
"NEW Yonc , May 17 1 a. m. The th
news in Now York-of Conkling's and tin

Col. Tom Ochiltree , of Texas , said
It is the cap stole % > f Coupling
Platt's lives. It was the only ste ;
they could take with any self respect
1s They could not , representing a grsa
state like New York , submit to such i
humiliation. The administration am

great body of republican voters in
New York state- would not endorse the
behavior and action of its senators
Messrs. Conkling and Platt , by direct

let the administration see that tl <
liF
F3oplo of New York are not so stupi

will see tliat by abandoning- New
v1
York senators and deviating from t/ ;
rule that is co-eval with the founda
tion of the government itself it has
made a great mistake. . The people of
the state of New York will not allow
Mr , Conkling to retire. I consider
Mr. Conkling the greatest man in the
country to-day. He is certainly witlj-
out a peer in the United States
senate. The senators both acted upon
the principle that neither were ac u-
ated ' by personal motives. Both fol
lowed the precedent that was estab
lished with the constitution. They
now turn and throw themselves into
the arms of their constituents , to find
favor or disapprobation.
Mr. Einstein thought that Governor
Cornell would not accept Mr. Conk-
ling's 's resignation , but in the event
of his excellency doing so the legisla
ture would re-elect him.
Collector Merritt and Naval Officer
Burt declined to express any opinion.
THEY MAY BE RETDKNED.
The Evening Post has the following
special dispatch from Washington : A'n
intimate friend of Senator Conkling
makes the following statement-aa to
the reason for the resignations :
"Statements have been made by gen
tlemen ! in the cabinet that Senators
Conkling and Platt do not represent
their atato in this matter of Robert
son ; that if the people had known
ivhat ] their position was to bo Platt
nould not have been elected and

liaving one senator after another re-
ieved from voting against the con-
irmation of Robertson in order to >
lave a petty postmaster here or there ,
he proposed to submit to such a sit-
latjon no longer , but to appeal to the P'1

retirement of Conkling can hard'y i
considered a calamity. ]
CHICAGO , May 17 1 a. m. The Gil

'The theatical exploit Conkling

Jie'assertion of a senator's primacy in

vhich can enlist public sympathy Ji

The Utica Herald , Ellis H. Roberts'
paper , will say , in effit , to-morrow ,
that the resignations were very baby
ish , .and eminently illustrative of
Conkling's indifference to party suc
cess where selfish motives are involved.
Itvwill assume that Conkling and
