Nobody yet knows whether a silver bill will pass tiie house, for the reason that It has not yet developed whether the three men, Crisp, Catching* and MeM i 11 i ii, who compose the majority of tlie committee on rules, will make tiie silver bill a special order and pro vide against filibustering against it. If the bill is tossed into those and an at tempt made to pass it without a special order, there is no doubt the anti-silver by constant filibustering, can cut action upon the bill during the cut congress. There is no limit to ! poop j prei I l'i v j tiie dilatory motions that follow one another thick and fast, and the silver bill would be lost beyond all hope un less t he majority of the committee on rules are in favor of it ami want to see passed, it is yet an open question whether these three men, who are steerers of legislation for tills ses.-iotl, will (U termine to prevent filibustering on the free coinage hill. There are a many leading democrats urging them not to act as there are rampant trie sil ver men urging them to act. Each of the three men are for tree coinage, and they will have to stand a deal of hard pounding if they reiusc to allow the „fiver bill to bo considered by the special order, which would insure its passage. On tin* other hand, the lead ing democrats who Know that itco coinage is party suicide are doing what they can to keep the committee on j rules with them. The tight is growing more and more interesting, especially ns some of the friends of Crisp, at least men who are supposed to be deep in bis confidence, liavv asserted that no silver bill will pass the present house. 1, oft and tol a of ble on be j [, e twcen tiie torritoiie; Hon.

Status of the Silver Question speaker Crisp told a number of dem ocrats, when it was pr »posed to give him and Ids committee on rules sueli powers, that he would be in favor of any measure and would report at a special order on any Kill which the ma jority of the democrats desired. On the silver bill, it has been impossible to have a caucus to find what the majority desires and the silverites on the coin age committee hit on a plan by which tiie conference at Bland's house the other night expected to get the speaker. 'I'lii' party lias been divided into sec tions and each man lias lieen detailed to canvass each section with a paper addressed to the speaker securing the signature ot every man possible, asking that a special order be made of the sil ver bill. It lias tieen worked very qui etly and the indications are that a ma jority of tiie democrats of tiie house have signed the request. The silverites think they have got the speaker in a place that he can not back out of and M ill have to consent to tlieir wishes. Senators Teller and Stewart, who are running the silver business in tiie sen ate, say that the policy of the senate will now be to wait for the bouse action, claiming that the Bland bill In the bouse is preferable to the bill reported adversely by tiie senate committee on finance. Mr. Teller says the Bland bill will be tin* groundwork and the text of tiie bill as it passes tiie senate. Ally May, the senate silver men prefer that tiie house should act first, so there would be no danger to the bill in con ference; but after a reasonable time,, if the house does not act, then the senate will take up the silver bill and pass it.
