position in tho matter of electing tho Sec
retary of tho Senate Tho Democrats arc
endeavoring to force tho Republicans to
bring tho fight on and tho Republicans
waul tho Democrats to tako tho Initiative
Judgo Davis still remains tho great un
known quantity If tho Democrats wero
suro ho would voto with them they could
not afford to proceed to an election hecauso
Judgo Divls voting with thclu would not
elect because his voto would only tlo tho
Republicans Should ho not voto tho Re
publicans would havo 0110 majority Should
ho voto with tho Republicans they would
havo two majority It Is claimed
by tho3a who ought to know that
Judgo Davis will not vote for
Col Wnslilugton but that ho would voto for
a resolution authorizing tho Chief Clerk to
perform all tho duties of Sccietary of tho
Senate until Congress meets or a Secretary
Is chosen Should this bo true nnd should
tho Republicans voto solidly against tho
proposition Mahnuo voting with them tho
resolution would bo lost Jfor want of an
ulllriuatlvovotc
Homo Democrats Seem to Think
that owing to tho dissatisfaction of somo
of tho Ropublicau Senators as to tho Repub
lican caucus nomlnco for Secretary that
they will probably voto for such a resolu
tion nnd thereby allow tho Democrats to
hold on to tho patrouago of tho Senato for a
few days longer
It may bo that this will bo so hut If
it should thus turn out it will bo tho
first tlmo lu tho history of tho Ro
publican partys cxistenco that it
ever failed to support and that
unto tho end tho caucuss action
In all matters appertaining to party or nny
other subject that may cmanato from their
caucus Both parties recognize tho fact
that It is necessary to cither elect 11 Secre
tary or provide somo mcan3 whereby tho
duties appertaining to his olllco may bo
discharged It will not do
Xor tun Either lnrty AHord
for tho sake of tho llttlo patiouago lu tho
ofllce lo allow matters to stand as they do
now lu regard to tho ofllce of Secretary If
tho question of settling tho difficulty is made
n party issuo thcro can bo but 0110 of two
results iu tho end either a dead lock and
no result or tho Republicans will elect
their man
Tho knowing ones tell us that on Mon
day next wo aro to havo somo Cabinet nom
inations aud that by Wednesday tho
Senato will bo icady to adjourn
Semite Proceedings To Uny
Senator McPhcison of New Jersey who
has been Itching evcrblncu thooxtia hes
ston convened to dig out somo nuggets of
political oro for uso in tho next campaign
sin ling tho trap lu tho Senato this morning
by calling up tho petition from members of
tlio rcw oru leglsiatuio
Protesting Afriiliist tho Admission ot
ucssrs iiipuniu 111111 unier
to tho Senate Ho supplemented his motion
by cxplalulng that an Investigation of tho
charges was mi absolute necessity Tho
Senate without objection allowed SicPhcr
son full swing and tho petition was re
ferred to tlio Committee on Privileges and
Flections
Tho Treasury IuostlKiitloii
Senator Sherman then got tho floor and
luaccordanco with his statement last Mon
day insisted on tho adoption of his reso
lution calling for tho rcpottnf tho Treasury
investigating committee which it was
alleged reflected somewhat badly 011 his ad
ministration whllo Secretary of tho
Tieosury Tlio Ohio Senator was cry
earnest lit securing tho adoption of his reso
lution but ho
Chnnecil Color anil Exhibited Somp
Disgust
when Senator Farloy aroso and moved to
amend tho resolution so that tho testimony
on which tho report is based should bo sub
mitted to tho Senato also This was just
oxactly what Mr Sherman did not desire
aud ho sprang to his feet aud explained
to Farley that his demand for tho
testimony was a veiy unusual piorecding
adding further that tho hestpattof it was
obtained from affidavits and ho assumed
that it was unreliable
Senator Dawc3 took sides with Sherman
Tnlkliif to tho Galleries as Usual
Senator Sherman Cook tip tho discussion
again nnd replied to Mr Farloy saying
that tho publlo picss had Insinuated that
thero woro things lu tho report which
Ellcntcd a Senator Thcso charges having
ecu mado lu a responsible newspaper ho
deemed It his duty and his right to call for
tho report If tho charges wero true It was
tho duty of thu Senato to look into them
When any man Impugned his ofllclal
integrity ho proposed to havo It investi
gated Ho opposetl tho nmoiidmont as un
just tho testimony being informal nnd not
taken under oath tho commission
having no power to administer oaths or
compel testimony Ho mado this objection
not so much on his own account ns that of
others
Mr Farloy took tho ground that If tho
Senato had any jurisdiction in tho matter
It should tho report being ox parte havo
tho testimony on which It was based
Slioininu Objects lo tho Tcsjliiiouv
To this proposition Mr Sherman stren
uously objected Ho contended that tlio
report should bo first called for then if
tlietp was found auythiiig to bo investi
gated tho Seuato could mako tho investiga
tion and tako tho testimony under oath iu
its own way Tho Seuato should not bo
mado a medium for tho publication of scan
dal founded on mcro rumor
Mr Farloy disclaiming any feeling in
tho matter still insisted tho testimony
should accompany tho leport If tho io
port was based on testimony taken without
authority tho Seuato should have nothing
to do with tho report It seemed to him
that tho object of tho icsolutiou could best
bo accomplished by including tlio testi
mony
Mr Morrill opposed tho nuyndment ho
llovlng that a
linking ThrouKli Hip Departments
lor Ncnndal
was beneath tho dignity of tho Senate
Mr Dawes said no 0110 would shrink
from any charge tho Senator from Califor
nia would make Tho charge which
prompted this call was that theio was some
thing in this report to tho Sccietary of tlio
Treasury which reflects upon his prcdo
cessor Tho call for that report was met by
tho Senator from California with a call for
something else Let tho report Iks had and
II anything further wm desired thcro would
bo no 0110 to object to it
Sherman Votes lor Himself
Tho question on tho adoption of Mr
Failoysnmcndmciit belnB nut lo tlio Sen
ate it was rejected
As tho voto assumed a partisan shape
soveral Senators who had voted nroso
futo tlio voto was aunnuncul and withdrew

whoso peculiar situation In tho premises
was keenly enjoyed by tho Democrats Tho

however and ills icsolutiou as originally
submitted was adopted Before its auop
lion Senator Garland suggested that tho
