Tho decision addressed to Collector Proud
of tho llaltlmoro district says It ap
pears that a druggist is putting up bottles
of whisky and water and adding to each
pint bottle with other ingredients a groin
of strychnine nnd labeling it tonic bitters
Such a compound is rcgaidcd by a most
competent druggist to ho dangerous to life
and If dispensed by a regular druggist
bhould bo labeled poison to protect un
wary persons against its too frco use Under
theso circumstances it would bo improper

lloth caucuses met nt 10 oclock a in
Tho Senators wcro slow In getting to tho
Capitol this morning and apparently
seemed to tnko very llttlo Interest In tho
catints both parties having on Saturday
about concluded nil that thoy could do until
after tho Scnato meets Tho Democrats aio
caucusing upon what shall bo their plan of
action after tlio election of a President pro
tern Tho Impicsslon now seems to bo that
tho programmo wlllbo to elect tho presiding
olllccr nnd then admit tho thrco new Sen
ators on their prima facie panels nnd ofler a
resolution authorizing tho chief clerk to
discliargo tho duties of Secrctnry until
tlio regular mcotlng of Congress nnd
proceed at onco to such busi
ness ns tho President may lay
Jicforo them It is anticipated howover
that beforo this is dono thcro wlH bo sev
eral bitter speeches made Tho llcpubll
cans will claim that tho Democrats by
electing ouo of their persuasion to tho
Presidency pro tcm Is offering a premium
for tho assassination of President Arthur
while tho Democrats will hold that thoy
aro not responsible for tho resignation of
Mr Conkllng and Mr Piatt nor aro thoy
responsible for tho act of God in removing
Senator Iluriisido from tho Scuato Chamber
It Is thought by many this morning that
eventually an attempt n 111 bo mado to mako
Senator Davis of 111 President pro tern
This howo or It Is said will not bo tho
taso for a fow days When tho tlmo conies
tho Itcpubllcmswlll move to proceed to tho
clcrtlon of a President pro tcm which mo
tlon will bo lu older every day Should
Senator Davis assent to this nnd dccllno to
vote it would lenvo tho Republicans lu u
majority by one Of courso all this was
mcro speculation nnd as such It was ghen
ttciilllciiu Ilnn of Action
Tho Iiopubllcau conference committee
appointed at Saturdays caucus held n
meeting yesterday nnd agreed upon a lino
of action which they submitted to the Re
publican caucus this morning and it was
ratified Just what that plan is cau only
bo surmised ns tlio Konublicau Senators
questioned about It stated that it v ould bo
dovelopcd after tho Scnato convened All
tlio lccpuiillcau senators except Mr van
Wyck attended tho caucus this morning
including Senator Piatt of Connecticut Ho
took no part In tho proceedings howover
Ho is paired with Senator Pair of Califor
nia Senator Mahono did not attend Tho
icssion did not last an hour
Wlmt ii Itoinibllenn Senator Mild
A Republican Senator said ho did not seo
how It was poslblo to prevent tho Demo
crats from having part of tho committees
Tho troublo will be which party shall con
tiol tho most imiortaiit committees This
troublo will havo to bo settled by a con
ference committee and a long and bitter
strife is Kiiticlpatcd beforo tho qtiostlnn Is
scttlod
The NiCrotlirYNlill
Tho several candidates for tho Secretaiy
ship seem to glvo very littlo troublo to tho
Senators In fact so far as cau bo ascer
tained tho Democratic Senators seem to bo
more interested in trying to flud n way by
which thoy cm elect n Secretary than in
looking up n candidate to vote for
Mr llorick chairman of tho Republican
Stato Central Commlttco of California is
here and may provo in tho end to bo a very
dangerous man for somo of tlioso other
statesmen who Imngluo that without them
tho Scnato cannot proceed with Its business
Ncnnlor Vent IZxiilulns
Senator Vest claims that ho was inisieprc
seated by somo of tho Now York papers yes
terday when they reported that ho said In
his lemarkH Saturday evening that ho
favored tho election of n Secretary after tho
President pro tcm had been ctcctud and ho
foro admitting tlio now Senators Ho took
no such position On tho contrary ho
favored tho swearing in of tho new Senators
as soon as a President was chosen

there was very llttlo to attract attention
up to 1130 oclock After that howevor
matters began to enliven up Tho first
matter of interest wtn tho appearaueo of a
colored messenger weighed down with law
books mid constitutional documents which
ho deposited slowly and carefully in older
on tho desk of Senator Ldmunds A buz
of excitement Immediately aroso and a
whisper ran around tho galleries that tlio

Tho only adornment of tho desks on tho

of peace Senators generally begau to ar

who attracted tho most attention wcro Hen

of attraction Tho samo painful stillness
prevailed Tho pauso was for only a second
though As tho tall well known form of
Ncnnlor lMiiiutiils Arose
slowly above tho Senators around him there
was an audlblo murmur of intcrcstfrom all
sides Senator Ldintinds ns usual spoko
slowly and gravely Casting glances hero
and tlicio from under his tufty whlto oyo
brows ho said that ho aroso to object to
tho consideration of tho resolution Just
handed in ns beforo that business was- in

This was tho signal for n general stir
among tho Democrats amid which Scnntor

on tlio table Tlio loll was called and Pendle
tons motion was carried by a voto of 30 to
31 David Davis who had arrived In tho

Itlinuiitls Oiler n Substitute
Senator Edmunds moved then to
suto tho namo of Senator Anthony in tho
Plato of Senator llayard in tho resolution de
claring tho latter President pro tcm offered
by Senator Pendleton Ho supplemented this
motion by a strong argument that under
tho law of 178 Senators elect could bo
sworn in by others than n President pin
tciu and read from tho records an Instaneo
in tho com cuing of an extra session of tho
Scnato of March I 12 Ho maintained
that this objection on tho part of tho Demo
crats was apparent to him a movement to
squeeze Into power If they could and it
was not surprising that tho Republicans
should luakoau effort to lcscntlt
Ncnnlor Jarlniul Itciillcd
Ho took tho ground that tho statute of
lTbO was tho law by which tlio Democratic
Senators choose tb bo governed Ho was
willing to admit that it had often been
dispensed with by tho unanimous con
sent of tho Senate and that could
bo dono in tills instaneo if It
suited tho convculeuco of tho Senate
hut it did not nor could not repeat tho act
of ITS that rulo 11 of tho Scnato mado
It obligatory upon tho Senate to proioed in
nccordanco with tlio net of 1780 Ho said
that no ouo would chargo unon their sldo
of tho Scnato Chamber tho responsibility of
mo action oi mo two iew xorK senators
who had resigned nor could their sldo of
tlio Chamber bo Held responsible for tho
death ot senator llurnsldo
Tlio Debate Takes ii Wlilo Itnuirc
Tho debato took n widorangeanddrifted
into tho days of tho Klcetoral Commission
this being brought about by nu nmcudmont
to Pendletons resolution ollcred by Senator
ldmunds to insert tho words for this day
only It was ovident that Mr Ldmuuds
Idea wits to get an opportunity to carry tho
matter over until to morrow when tho Re
publicans with tho nssistanco of David
Davis could movo to repeal tho action of
to day by electing Senator Anthony Ho
asked that tho Scnato cither adopt his
amendment or consent to tho
Nncnrlnir lu ortlicNcniilorsrjccl
This brought out Senator llcck with his
reminiscences of tho Electoral Commission
Ho said that anything could bo accom
plished by unanimous consent hut tho
Democratic policy was to consent to noth
ing except that laid down by law As to
tho amendment of tho Senator from Ver
niout
It Meant Mischief
A great deal of harm could bo acioin
compllshedby tlio thrco words pioposcd for
insertion In tho days of tho Infamous
Electoral Commission two littlo words and
if woro tlio means of depriving sovcral
worthy Staios of their votes It was a
similar attempt now and would not uioct
tho npproval of tho Scnato or tho country
Senator Edmunds mado it strong reply
Ho had not nml did not
AnU Unanimous Consent for All-
lliliiK
His resolution was plain enough to stale its
meaning Ho was nwaro of tho fact that if
it dialled at any tlmo tu give unanimous
consent tho Scnato would grant that if it
desired Indeed It was oven among tho
piobabllltlcs that tho Senators on tlio other
sldo could if thoy wanted to voto unani
mous consent to declare tho credentials of
tho Senators elect invalid and throw tho
Republicans out altogether It was still
a mystery to hfiiijust
What dm Democratic Nenalois De
sired lu Accomplish
There was nu ancient and true baying
however that they who took tho swoid
must perish by tho sword and ho warned
tho other sldo of what their present lino of
tactics might bring them to
Ncnnlor llailand
prodtucd tho rules of tho Senato and read a
Hcctlnn ptovidlug that tho election of tho
President pro tern was rout lolled entirely
by tho wlllof tlio Senate This fact ho
maintained declared Mr Edmunds amend
ment out of oitlet
Senator Morgan then took up tho debato
und went back to tho days of tho rebellion
and mado ouo of his characteristic speeches
In which ho ground out tlio Injury claimed
to havo been dono to tho South by action of
tho Electoral Commission
