Senator Tillman of Pouth Carolina,, who threatened la.t nlRht to ptlr up (trouble, not only In the- Senate caucus thl mnrr.lmr but In the open Senate later, confined his protest to the Senate committee. When he appeared In the Senate later In the day he looked dis appointed but reconciled to his fate and at the opportune time, under the jiremptinps of his Democratic col leanies, he ror In his place and moved 1 the adoption of the report of the Demo cratic caucus on committee assign ment. A motion was made In the Democratic caucus this mornlnp to substitute Sen ator Tillman's namo for that of Senator Martin of Virginia ns chairman of the Appropriations Committee, but tho mo ttim received only four votes. Senator Tillman had prepared a statement which wai rod In the party caucus to-day by li . c ilicacue. Senator Smith of South Carolina. Senator Tillman was present 1 !rlnR the reading of It and made a few rem., -us to the caucus. H;.i statement bad een carefully prepared and revised iituier the advice of his friends. It was Jos aimri.Me In tone than when It is tlr.st drifted yesterday. lien the ll-t of committees was sub- ni toj in the Senate by Senator Kern of In liana, chairman of tho Democratic i us. tt wa.s read from the desk.

There v.is a tone of pathos In Mr, Tillman s t rief (.perch. He t.eemed com pleted Miruiued, in htrlklnp; contrast to the ai' t nf. assumed yesterday. His lemo!rt". ruiieuRues adopted rxtraor tl "dry measures to reroneile him.

Announce ment of Richard Olney's declination of the ambassadorship to the Court of St. James's was inado at the White House o-day. President Wilson received a letter from Mr. Olnry this morning, In which the former Secretary of State said he would be unable to accept the post for personal reasons. This development again upset specu atlon as to the ambassadorship until it was learned that lresldent Wilson Is erlously considering Charles K. Eliot, president emeritus of Harvard. Dr, Cllot declined this post when President Taft offered it to him. but there seems to be a disposition on "the part of the now administration to make the offer again. Friends of Mr. Olney, when the am bassadorship was tendered to him, ex pressed considerable doubt as to his acceptance because of the poor health of Mrs. Olney. Mr. Olney Is 78 years old and his wife Is TO. Mrs, Olney Is y no means as strong as her husband. For several years aba has withdrawn herself from active participation in lioston society. Mrs. Olnoy would not likn to undertake the heavy social du ties of an Ambassador's wife. Thomas Nelson Page and ex-Gov. Joseph K. Wlllard of Virginia, ex-Gov, FrancU of Missouri and Judge George (ray of Delaware, who was appointed to the Hague Tribunal by President Taft early in March, have all been men tioned for tho Ambassadorship. Page's chances were thought to have been prejudiced by a factional row In Virginia. Ho was recommended by Sen ator Martin and the organization Dem ocrats of the State, while ex-Gov. Wll lard was urged by Speaker Hynl of tho House of Delegates, who managed Wil son's pre-convention fight In Virginia ind who was tho reputed spokesman fur tho progressive Democrats of the State. Thl cloud was removed from the Virginia novelist's prospects to-day, however, when Sptnker Hyrd called on tho President to renew his recommen dation of Wlllard and also to announce that he was not opposing the appoint ment of Pago should this appointment meet with tho President'. nppToval. It Is believed the President will con sider tho matter quite a while before he announces that he has offered tho Ambassadorship to another man. GRAY RECEIVES NO WORD. or Ac 0 1$) .

A member of tho household said: "That Is all ft mistake. Dr. Kllot ha not been asked If ho will accept such an appointment." Tho Inquirer's attention was called to the fact that Dr. Kllot declined the offer from President Tnft. Tho Intimation was given that tlicro wns no more rea son why lie Hhould italto nuch a post now than there won under the previous Administration. Washington, March 15. Convincing evidence was given at tho Whito House to-day of Presdent Wilson's desire to put a quietus on all reports that there lias been a disagreement or a misun derstanding between him and National Chairman William V. Mcf'nmbs. Mr. McCombs held a long conferenco with tho President In regard to patron ago mattrrs. After It was over tho formal announcement wis made that tho talk between the Presldrnt and Mr. McCombs had been most agreeable and satisfactory. It was niado known that tho President had appointed ox-5ov. Hurko of North Dakota Treasurer of. tho United States upon Mr. McCombs's recommendation. Tho fact that the White House -was glad mendatlons will carry great weight. It Is understood that President Wilson will hae independent sources of in formation In regard to npjiolntments In New York as well as other States, Ho will call m these Independent source; to assist him In checking up tho can dldates that are recommended for office by members of Congress. It Is believe that Mr. McCombs will bo one of th men to whom tho President will look In New York State, and Secretary Commerce Itedtleld of Urooklyn Is cer tain to hr another.
