They Want to Adjourn the Extra

so Great a Hurry.
Fight as to the Powers of the
Senate In Extra Session.
The New Cabinet Officer With the Ex
ception of Blaine and Wlndotn
Don't Enow the Bods and
They Delay Matter.
F &clal Pit-patch to Tbe Appeal.
Wasiiinoton, Murch 19. Tbe Repub
lican (Senators are very anxious to. bring
tbe session to a close at tbe end of tbe
present week. Tbis desire bis been ninde
f known to President Harrison, but he is
. not yet able to give his consent, v He says
m Vslltat it is necessary to have certain oltleials
connrmoa, anu ne cannot get me cabinet
- members to act promptly enough In se
lecting tbe men tliey want appointed.
' Tbe trouble is tbat all out two of tbe Cab
inet olllcers, Messrs. Blaine , and Win
dom, are entirely new to Wash
ington lire, and witb tbe excep
tion ol Uncle J ere Kusk, they are
wholly unknown to the politicians and
! other public men. They have bad no ex
perience in dealing with ollire seeker or
tbe crowds of general callers that visit tbe
departments every day, and nearly ail o
their tnuo is commuted in gulling rid of
them. They are therefore very slow in
selecting men (or appointment and it is
impossible to make them hurry.
1'resideul Harrison has explained those
thing to the senators who have called
. upon blin, but has agreed to try and get
i all the nomination needing Immediate
conlirniation to tbe Senate by Thursday
: so that they can be acted uitou ami ti mil
' adjournment reached on Friday or Satur-
v day. The Senate sessions are at present
very indiUerent alluim. Yesterday the
session lusted three hours; half an hour
f was eiM-nt iu continuing Uoiniiiatioiis and
the rual of the time in discussing the ques
! lion ol whether tbe Senate bus the
! constitutional right to transact any legisla
live business at an extraordinary sewiiuii.
The Uupublifiin are divided in opiniirh,
but the lieuua-ratica are all of one mind.
- savinu that the dilute at its prvM-ntsemiou
bus the constitutional right to m l on noui-
.inaliotis sole! v. Tlie puns! ol the Dem
ocrats in taking this staud is to tight olf
t lio timpowtl investigation and discussion
of the southern outrages, which some ol
tlio radical Itepublicuns are disjioaed to
discus. Tbo lkmocrnta are very earnest
in their arguments, although a search of
tbe records for only a lew years buck will
ahow that they have previously taken Just
the onismile around and have voted to
ti ... take up legislative business at a called
W lv.li. I..
The discussion w ill probably bo contin
ued at odd tunes during tbo week for the
purpose of tilling in tin dsy, and at the
end of the week if tbe uomiuuiiou aiv all
iu the K-uate will adjourn.

Wahiiinoton, March 11). The Vice-
President announced the following select
committee on the April centennial celo-
bratlon in New York: Senators Hitcock,
Sbcrmaii, Hoar, Yoorbees and Ku.stia.
Mr. Shernuiu railed up tbo proposed
amendment to the rule requiring resolu
tions that call for information from the
executive departments to be referred to
the appropriate committee, lie said that
the adoption of such resolutions, without
Inquiry, sometimes involved very -large
and unnecessary expenses, and that such
a change of the rule was dusirable.
Mr. Yoorbees opposed the change of the
the rule. Ho understood that no assent
to it bad been given on the Hemocrativ
side of the chain her. He called attention
to the fact that tbe Government was
within a few weeks of closing its first hun
dred yearn of history under the Constitu
tion, and that (luring that century ol na
tional life no such rule as that now pro
posed bail ever been found neeeatary.
Jle could see no oliiecl lhat II was likely
lo accomplish except to stillu investigation
and obstruct inquiry into the conduct of
any executive detriment. He submitted
to the trustor from Ohio, and to all (Sena
tor on the other side, whether thev could

partly lo the fact that wo have 0sraled
