WASHINGTON, D. C, TI1UKSDAY EVENING, AUGUST ai, 1890. PRICE TWO OlSNTS. POLITICAL NEWS REPUBLICANS SORRY H)R GIVING AWAY THE CAUCUS SECRETS. DIRTY LINEN TO BE PRIVATELY WASHED Explanation as to Why the Quay Resolution Was Not tolled Up. WHAT A DEMOCRATIC SENATOR SAYS. Interesting Gossip of the Situation Generally-Lwh Makes Some Serious Charges. I A goodly audience had gathered In Uio Senate Cbntnbor this morning to listen to tho continuance of the debate on tbe Quay resolution, lint that cele brated resole was pot beard from. Sena tor Plumb's resolution, concerning tbe Bale of liquors, wines and beers In tbe Senate restaurant was discussed, but not acted on. Ills resolution concern ing tbe cbarges arjalnst Lieutenant Guy was ndoDtcd. This braco of resolves and Mr. Quay'8 wcro Intro duced on tbe same d ay, Tho specta tors, particularly tbe correspondents who tlironpcd tbe press gallery, fairly held tbclr brcatb as tbe President pro (emjxjre announced the adoption of tbo Guy resolution. Nothing could now interfere wllb tho calling up of tbo Quay resolution. At least, so tho spec tators tbougbt. But at this moment Senator Quay, clad In a scdato gray suit, and serene as a May morning, emerged from tho ob scurity of bis scat within the shadow of tbo cortb gallery, passed to tbo open space In front of the presiding ofllcer, walked down tbo main aisle, crossed ovu to Mr Aldrlcb, Mid something to Mm tied disappeared within the Itcpub ilran cloak-room. Mr Aldrlcb rose and said that I there were no further business to be transacted In tho morning hour he would call the Tariff bill up. It was not yet 11 o'clock. What did this move moau? Why was not In Quay resolution called up? These wcr tbo questions which sprang quietly to tbe lips of tbe correspondents, who wore slightly dazed by the turn uuttors bad taken "It means that Quay is beaten." said the pro Force men. But It doesn't mean anything of tbo bind. It means simply that tbe Repub lican leaders bare come to their senses far enough to realize the folly of wash ing their dirty llnun In public. They hare consequently determined to settle the points luvolved In the Quay resolu tion In tecrct conference and to put a stop to unseemly wrangling among themselves In open Senate. This movement began yesterday, and was precipitated by tbe fiery speech of Mr Frye It Is In effect to modify ths Quay res olution by Including in It the Force bill, that measure to be set for a day certain la December next, ami the previous question be ordered en another day certain No doubt this compromise will be agreed to by a large majority of the Re publican Senators and will, perhaps, Lie accepted by all. Its adoption will be facilitated by the absence of Sen ator Edmunds, who to day left to lie gone a week, having obtained leave jesttrday But can this com promise get through tbe Senate There's the rub. The Democrats can delay the passage of this compromise resolution as readily as tbe passage of the Force bill Itself. Mr. F rye's assertion in bis speech yesterday that tbe Republican Senators coukl, by meeting at 10 o'clock Is lb morals and sitting until 6 in tbe evening aid iheu lemaiaing all sight If necessary, change tbe rules to provide tV tbe previous riueetloa, is reckoning without the Democrats. Potty thre: BepublU ana would have to be la thel eeais i onstanlly, The Democrats would only need to keep ive or six men there, tue rest could indulge ia "nature's sweet restorer" to tbelr bodies content They could keep it up ladeaaitely. Tbe plain fact U that th Republicans are in a Lad way, and nobody knows belter than they. They are divided on tbe justice and tbe expediency of the Force bill. Tbey at divided oa the questloa of changing the Bwiitir rates. They are dividedo the Tariff bill now pending in tbe fimnnl They don't want to adopt tbe Quay retalutiua. pur and simple. Yet they can't rose through tbe senate the coatptoads resolution, of which they are now talk ing Tbe only resolution relating to the order of bueiaess of the iitsstna which can be passed in the Senate without charsge ot tbe rules, Is one which wttl postpone the Force bill until the coating session nest D& ember, without "Hug an sneeim; day when it shall come up.

In very wolk, the Democrats, for far as tbe tore bill Is coeceraed, have the ItcpuWIcaw In chancery. LKR ItKNOMIXATED. IlK HAD BVHRTTHttfn lire OWS WAY IS THB COKVBXTIOtf.

A special to tbe IlmtUl from A''atita, Ga.. says The State Alliance Convention has devel oped a sensation here in tbe investiga tion which is going on ot one of the biggest Alliance men In Georgia, Felix Corput, of Rome, ex president of tbe Slate Alliance Exchange. In a speech before tbe convention Corput denied tbe truth of tbe cbarges. As he did so, another delegate read an atodavlt ot a prominent stockman, which dealt with transactions that Corput bad while president of tbt exchange, aud tended to show that Corput was looking out for a percentage fur himself. A similar charge grows out of tbe transactions with a Baltimore guwo firm. These amdavils, it Is said, were the direct cause ot Corput's resigning the ex change presidency, which he did so lime ago. At that tine there were rumors of crookedness, but ho fuels could be learned. A committee Is In vestigating tbe matter. APATHETIC REPUBLICANS. LACK OF IXTBKEfiT IK STATU lOUTIC It. WET VIRUIMA.

Mr. Cooper, at Mie npenlog of the session, mode a statement as to his present rotations to the committee, lie said be bad based bis opinion In regard to thc conduct of Commissioner Ilautn upon what be bad read In the news papers. After making an investigation be came to thc conclusion that tho charges preferred were sutllclcnt tocill for an Investigating committee. Commissioner Ilium said be bad nothing to fear frc.i the Investigation The charge of corruption Id olllce, he said, was bis connection with a private corporation. Ho objected to tbe drac glng In the books of a corporation, but said be was willing to testify In the full est nnd most direct way that no stock ot tho Universal llefrlgerator Company bad ever been sold to employes of the Pcntlon Ofllce and that any ot them were promoted. "Do you expect to show that no slock was ever offered to na emplove ot the Pension Bureau?" was asked Mr. Cooper by Judge Sawyer. Mr. Cooper- "I am not the party un der Intcstlgallon; but as Commissioner Haum has brought In the matter I think we ought to have the books " Judge Sawyer- "Have you a llt of tbe stockholders?" Commissioner Ilium: "As president of the Universal Ib-filaerator Company I have cbaige of all the books and know all tbe stockholders." The Commit tloncr added that behind Mr. Cooper, who, he believed, waa not trrlns to in jure him, there were other parties who Had undertaken the vlllianous task of destroying bis character and credit. Mr. 8rayter of Ohio was not In favor of prcduclng thoboke at the very out set of (he luvestlgtllon. Mr. Itaum h id said he f bjected to the produe'Ioa of thc boobs, but was willing to toitlf v as to wilt, the stockholders were Judge Sawyer offered a resolution that, as Ihe Commissioner wss charged wltb misconduct In bis official duties In that he had made promotions of em ployes In the Pension Bureau who had purchased stock in the Universal lie frlgeratlng Company, tbe evidence submitted must be la relation to said charges. After an amendment, so tbtt tbe resolution would read "that be (IUum) made, advised, recommended or caused promotions," tbe resolution was adopted.

Commissioner ttsum (ontewhat hesi tatingly) Wt-U, I suppose so. After a further talk it was iaally agreed that the list of stockholders fur nished the losamittee should not at the present time be furnished to the press. Commissioner Haum "I arise to say without reserve that no wan in the Pea sion Bureau, either directly or Indi rectly, ever had any coaaeetioa what ever with tbe Universal Refrigerator Company " lie also stated that he would prepare a list of the stockholders aad subsalt the original books, but with the understanding that Mr Cooper should aot make the iavesHgattoa pub lic by f urasfthiati it to the psesa.

Mr Lewis said- "IT we aie to have a fair and full Investigation tbe question should tic asked." Mr. Cooper said be asked the question as bearing upon the financial condition of Commissioner Itaum at the time bis uoles were Indorsed by Captain Lemon. Judge Sawyer said that tbe evidence lo be taken was to satisfy a certain proposition as to whether Commissioner Itaum made anunftist ruling In thecase of a party who had afterward Indorsed bis notes. The objection was sustained. Mr. Cooper declared that he did not wish to proceed In an Investigation where such narrow ruling were made for the purpose of shielding the party under Investigation. "I shall not stand such a statement," said Judge Sawyer, with warmth, "and no ccntlcman would speak so." Mr. Cooper apologized for what he had said In thc excitement of the mo tnent and Judge Sawyer did the same. Mr. Cooper then withdrew from the room.

HI O rami Cblof Sargent of the Federation of lUllway Employes late last night mmle the fol lowing statement "I am now firmly convinced that Mr. Powderly ami the Knights f Ulwr have acted in an upright and honor able manner, ami that they have don everything possible to bring about a settlement of this dispute by trying their utmost to have the milter settled by arbitration, and tbey have failed through Mr. Webb's refusal to allow It to be arbitrated. Tbe result, so far as I am concerned, is that I have decided to convene the Supreme Council of thc Federation, and I have already Issued a call to that effect. "Tho Supreme Council will meet In Tcrrc Haute, Ind., our headquatters. at 10 o'clock In the morning next Satur day, and I shall submit the whole mat ter to them for consideration and action. Thc additional member of the council, wlta whom I have just communicated by telegraph, are Eugene V. Debt of Icrre Haute, grand secretary and as sistant treasurer of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen; J J. Hannahan of Chicago, vice grand master of the Brotherhood of locomotive Firemen, William Sheehan of Calesbnrg. 111., grand secretary of thc Brother hood of ltallroad Trainmen. P. II. Morrlsey of Peoria, III., vice grand master of the Brotherhood of ltallroad Trainmen, James Dow ney of Chicago, vice grand master of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid Ao elation John Hall of Chicago, Grand Oreanler of tbe Switchmen's Mutual Aid Association; George Lavlgny of Terre Haute, assistant grand chief Conductor of tho Hrotherhood of Itatl way Conductors, and James Carr of Kansas City, assistant grand con ductor ot the Brotherhood ot ltallroad Conductors. "I shall lay before tbe council all that I have observed and beard con cerning tbe origin cf tbe strike while I bate been in the city and elsewhere and shall let the council deride upon tbe action to be taken. What action do I think tbe counril will take? Tbtt is a matter I cannot dl'cuss. Tbe Knights have appealed to us for sup twit and I have gleaned all tbe infor mation I can upon tbe subject, it it for tbe council to pass Judgment, but I may say that the potltlon taken by ihe executive board of tbe Knights of Labor baa my entire sympathy. I take tbe position that tbe Knights have ex hausted all means to bring about a peaceful settlement of tbe affair and that Mr. Powderly baa only been able to bear one side that of tbe men tbe railroad having refused to arbitrate tbe matter prevents him from beating the other side. Tbe railroad refuses all other meant ot settlement." GATHERU.O Of THE LEAD!. Tbe members of tbe General Execu tive Board ot tbe KnlgbU of Labor did not make tbelr appearance at the St Cloud Hotel until late this morning. Chief Sargent, with hit companions, Messrs. Howard. Wtlklasoa, and Sweeney, were astir early, and at 7 30 left the hotel to take a train for Terre Haute Chief Sargent said this morn ing that at tbe meeting ot tbe Supreme Council of tbe Federation which would be held al Terre Haute oa Saturday a strike on tbe Vanueudlt system would undoubtedly be ordered. He aad his tnree companions bad indorsed the ac tion of tbe General Executive Board of ' he K nights ot Labor, And be thoroughly believed that tbe Supreme Council of ibe Federation would sustain tbem. He tatd that the action of Mr. Webb last night la adhering ao nrmly to the sited he bad taken rendered the actio they bad lake necessary. Mr. Webb's arbi trary methods aad utter refusal to arbi trate tbe situation made It useless to deal with him any longer. At 0 3" Mr. Powderly said that he wcukt have nothing to say for several boura. Later becreiary Hayes of the Keights of Labor stated that Mr Powderly 'sad dteat would sot be give out until to night. tut wcjtui neiur At th Giand Ceatral Depot Mr. Webb aaki that he was fully prepared to meet the strike when it ca aad that he did aot ami. IpaUi that of the employes would go out lie said of Mr Powderly that h coa sideud him a very teasibie uaa. but that the hot head ia tbe Federation aad the eaecutive board wet too aauch for bias, and the result was that matter have take the course they have Mr Voorhees stated that everything along the road vu, uU.1, sad that ail passenger trains were running cm time, site that the comber of freight trains dispaUbed each day waa Increasing.
