Washington, J). C., Oct. 10.-?Sena- cl
tors of all ehades ot opinion now agrco
that tho night session experiment will
bo necessary to brinjr the senato to any u'
agreement on the financial qtiostion.
Opinions differ as much as to tlio ~
probable length of tlio continuous ses- m
nion as to what the result of it will be. di

continuing for forty-eight hours, and C(
are making their plana accordingly. T
Thcv will mako an eflort at 0 o'clock tomorrow
afternoon to secure an adjourn- "
ment, but do not expect to aucceed in sj
tliH. They do not doubt that there ei
will ho enough senatora present to con- 0
ftituto a quorum at that time, nor do
tiiey question that tho majority will bo J)(
airninst them. Manifestly their only of
object in seeking a vote on this question pi
is to mako tho record complete that d<
they mny have a legitimate object for \\
complaint. d<
After an adjournment motion is voted oi
down soino one of tho silver advocates fu
will take the lloor and apeak until re- ce
Jieved by some other senator of like le
view8. The leaders on the silver aido nt
Hay that so far as they can control their en
forces they will insist that tho majority .Sc
ahull maintain a quorum. Kstimatosof IS
the number who can bo relied upon to tr
refuse to make a quorum range all tho si
way from fifteen to thirty. Of tho of
others somo will be absent, so that it is ot
evident that tiio repeal men will have
to bo continuously present in quite
larL'e numbers to prevont an adjournment
if undertaken. There aro not ftI
lacking those who protlicb that tlio re- 01
pealers will find themselves in this prodicainent
before the elbse of the iirst
night. The majority of senators admit
hat compromise is the most probable 8n
result of the night session experiment, cc
but Senator Voorhees and liia immo- Bc
diate followers say the bili will go 0j
throucrh as roportod. V(
A careful canvass of the senate shows 8j
that if a vote should bo reached upon (ll
the bill as it stands that it would carry ^
by a majority of eleven, and that the
vote would be as follows, supposing all ?<
the senators to bo present: C(]

Tho silver men claim that there are
at least eight senators in this allirmativo U|
list, who are desirous of securing a compromise,
and that if some measure can
be devised upon which they and those
eight can agreo the vote will he rover- T
nod. Senators Manderaon, Caroy and

trying to bring about a compramiae. x

An unusually small attondanco ^
during tho ontiro day was noticeable, tj
senatora apparently husbanding their p
strength for tho continuous session h
which Sonator Voorheos on Saturday J*
last gave notico ho would ask for to- a]

Senator Squire, of Washington, pro- Jjj
posed another amendment to tho silvor c,
bill, hike his othor proposition it d
strikes out all aftor tho enacting clause 11
and proposes an entirely now scheme, J'
The new proposition is intonded to take
tlio place of the formor proposed by jj
him, and is a compromise which em- "
braces nearly everything domanded, by K
tho di He rent sides of tho silvor question.
It does, howovor, moot with more 1
approval from loading fonatora than 11
anything that has vet boon suggested. P
1' is understood that Senators Teller, J
Allison, .Sherman and others have said
tii.it :t is the best compromise that has ?
hoen 9uggo8ted. Senator Squire intends 11
to a-k that each senator's proposition bo n
vott i on poparatoly.

Tho repeal bill was then taken up
id Mr. Cockrell, of Missouri, who was
ititled to tho floor, yielded it to Mr.
cPherson, (Dern., of N. J.,) who adressed
tho senate in favor of tho bill.
The question that presaoa itself homo,
lid Mr. McPherson, and appeals to the
tuscience and intelligence of every
mator, is will Con<rresa heed the voico
tho people and stop tho influx of sil?r,
or will it not? This is the plain,
mole question. It lias boon debated
id decided elsewhere by a higher triinal
than this.
In conclusion, Mr. McPherson said:
JI what use is a legislative body that
innot act as tho. majority deaires.
tiata minority of this body should be
lowed to stand as an oatacle to the
;her branch of tho legislature in giving
Feet to tho will of tlio majority of the

ho is tho author of a similar bill in
10 senate, was on the floor while tho
3to was being taken. Quito a jubimt
demonstration was made by the
emocrats when the result was an011

10. Democrats had their own quorum
resent wore stopped from filibustering
y tho iron-clad order undor which W10
ousewas operating,jboyond demanding
a avo and nay voto on tho Burrows
ad Lacey amendments.
The Democrats admitted that tho bill
as defective in that it tailed to repeal
latuto 5,528, which inferenticlly portita
troops at the polls, but tho modifiition
could not bo mado undor tho orer,
and tho correction will havo to bo
uule in tho senate. tiomo of the lioublicans
claimed that in defeating the
acey amendments the Democrats reealed
all laws to prevent bribery and
allot box stuffing at elections for deloates
in tho territories, but tho Demorats
claimed that tho legislatures of
10 territories had all onactod laws for
10 punishment of ofFonders against the
uritv of the bnlloi in the territories,
nd Mr. Tucker called attention to tho
ict that section 1,848 of tho revised
tatutes, providing in tortus that after
10 first olection each territory should
lako laws to govern its olcctions.
Delogato Smith also called attention
> the fact that soino of tho territories

The ayes and nays were demanded and
the roll was called. The roll call rehuItod
ayes 100, nays 193. The vote
demonstrated the fact that the Democrats
had nine in excess of a quorum.
The vote then recurred on Mr. Lacey's
amendment providing for the punishmont
of crimes against the ballot in congressional
and dolegato elections, and
Mr. Lncoy demanded an aye and nay
vote, claiming that the defeat cf his
amendment would give bribory and

Last night's mooting of tho city eoanil
was one of tho most remarkable and
xciting of tho many stormy and partian-line-drawn
sessions that have boon
eon hold by tho prosent body of city
Jgisjafcors. After tho^routinbusiness
nci oeen uispuueu ui mo ciotuuu u?
hrco iras works trustees, to comprise
ho gas board, came up, and thereby
angsatale. JSuch a tug-ol-wnr as lol>wed
between the rival sides is seldom
witnessed in logislativo bodies. The
mooting rivaled the long-drawn out ones
i last winter when the election of a
rater board was the bono of contention.
The Democratic slate was composed
t tho threegentlemen named in the Inkluoencbr
yestorday, Messrs. Holliay,
Dun levy and JefTerson, while the
tepublican* preserttod the names of
todfrev irchul and E. Buckman. Bo- '
ides these live, two others were named
iy Democratic boilers: John Zaraiti
V Mr. O'Malley and P. J. Gilligan by
Ir. Filan.
'Iho ballots taken resulted in ties, Mr.
'ilan voting with the Republicans. Mr.
)obbins, Kepublican, did not vote, as he
/as paired with Mr. Paull, who could
iot be present. The attempt of the
tepublicans to bring up tho matter of
ho election of a market master for the
econd ward market house, before votng
for gad trustees, failed only by realm
of the mayor declining to cast the
eciding vote. Tho opinion of many
rns that tho mayor has a perfect right
o vote in such a contingency. but he
roulcl not exercise it. Tho same was
ruo in tho election of trustoos lator on;
oro tho ballots were ties, but the mayor
rould not break tho deadlock.
The balloting for gas trustee brought
ut a peculiar spectacle, that of all the
)emocrata voting for ono Kepublican,
Ir. Jefferson, and tho Republicans

pinion, Mr. Mayor. This meeting is
jr the nurnoso of olectinir trustees of

Mr. Milligan?You will remember,
Ir. Mayor, that council recently poatoncd
tho election of market master,
nd in my opinion the election of rnaret

Tho Mayor?I rulo your motion out

Mr. Richards?I would like to say a
3W words on thia subject.
Tho Mayor?Go ahead.
Mr. Richarda?-There ia a little history
n connection with thia matter. A resoation
waa passed by council postponnp
the election of markot maater to
his timo. It Aetna to me that any fairlinded
man can seo that it ia the
roper order of buaineaa, by parlia- \
lentary rules ant) common sense, to
lect a' market master. There have
ieen no pood reaaons advanced for
ostponement furthor. Tho term of
dice expiroH to-night, and a successor
t.ould bo elected now. la ia not bad
uuiness policy to defer tho matter to a
iituro timo?
Tho Mayor?What you have said

Ir. Iiichards. if council sees fit to
verrule my position it can do ho.

Tho voto waa then taken ; Mr. Filan,

with tho Republicans against tho

oto resulted in 21 ayos and 2X noes.
Mr. Maxwell?By"a tio vote, in tho
jrtn that the question waa put tho

President Watorhou?e, of thesocond
