Democrats Show a Determination to Bo* open the Xonisiana Senatorial Question. STJTITI'ENDER. A DEMOCRATIC UACK-DOWH. Special Dhpatch to Tht Tribune. Washington, May I.—Thus far the Demo* erotic Senators have succeeded In keeping secret the particular points of yesterday's caucus, which alt of them agreed must bo concealed for the good of the party. The report that Senator llutler had presented a moat extreme mid un wise resolution that made it ncccesary to om* phaslzo the obligations of secrecy appears to bo erroneous, though the exact character of his* proposition has notbccomc known. One matter that received attention, and which It was de sired should ho kept secret, was the plan by which the extreme men declared they would bo able to prevent any of those who advised vot ing for the appropriation bills without political legislation attached from accomplishing their purposes. This was simply through the House Committee on Appropriations . DECLINING TO REPORT NEW BILLS to tho House at present, and not at all until re quested to do so by tbe majority of the House Democrats. Another point was suggested la this caucus of the Senate, namely: That the Democrats should bind themselves to each other not to count the Electoral vote of auy State where troops were employed during the next Presi dential election. It seems to bo settled, how* ever, Dial the Senate Democrats arc much more conservative In their views In regard to the sub ject of refusing supplies thou the House, uud that a knowledge of this fact has bad a de pressing effect upon the extremists of the House to-day. THE JOINT CADCDB COMMITTEE was In session for several hours after the ad journment of the House. Senator Thurman presided, and tho discussion was general and prolonged upon the points at issue. The proposition first presented, in which several members of tho Committee earnestly Joined, declared that tho Democratic party has taken Its position upon the alternative of tbe repeal of Uio objectionable laws or refusal of supplies, and It ought, now that the President hud de clined to sign the repeal of such laws as had been attached to the Army bill, to absolutely refuse to pass the appropriations for the army. This pioposltlon bad more strength among the House memoers of the Committee than those from the Senate, and in fact LACKED A MAJOIUTr In either branch of the Committee, anil v?as Anally defeated. It was hold by Ute majority that no party could afford to go to the country upon such refusal of supplies us would seriously cripple or discontinue any of tho great depart* meats of the public business, mid tho sentiment of tho majority of tho Joint caucus was that whatever tho action of the President might bo upon the aeparote measures which it was pro* posed to present to him, in no event should this Congress adjourn without providing adequate appropriations for tho service of the Govern ment. It was Anally agreed that A SEPARATE BILL bill should be drafted, to bo reported to the caucus of each House during the day to-mor row, this hill to relate exclusively to tho uso of troops at tho polls, and to omit that phrase* ology of Die sixth section of Ute vetoed bill which the President treated os applying to civil officers of tho law. Messrs. Eaton, Chal mers, uud Carlisle wore appointed a Hub-Corn luittec to draft such a bill. It will bo recom mended to tho two caucuses that present action on tho Army Appropriation bill and on the Legislative bill shall bo suspended until .an Independent measure prohibiting the uso of troops ut the polls can be passed through the two Houses and sent to tho President. In case he vetoes It, the sentiment seemed to bo that Uio Legislative bill SHOULD STILL DB HIB9SHD through the Senate Id tho form In which It passed tho House, so far as Us political Icut* urcs ore concerned, and scut to tho President for his action. It was regarded as certain that It would be vetoed by the President, but it was thought best to send Uj to him lu Its present shape, lu order to enable the Democrats to put their record before their party lu the form which they deemed beat for campaign purposes. The position taken by those who seem to have most Influence in tho Caucus Committee was that 11 the President should veto tho political legislation lu regard to tho Election laws the record of tho Democracy would be as strong be* fore the country as It can bo made under the circumstances, especially If It were not weak* cncd by a refusal to vole supplies. A NOTH Bit BUIUSCT . ‘ ■ of groat Importance was broached In Committee, and received considerable attention. It was pre sented by the Senate members, and evidently reflected the views of the ’ Senatorial caucus of yesterday. It was a • declara tion In which most of , those present seemed to heartily Join. That Is (hat this Congress would count the Electoral vote of tho campaign of 18S0. The Democrats ought to agree, and cause this agreement to be publicly known, thatlu no event would they receive the iteilij Is /p Electoral vote of any titalo In which It could be BIIOWII THAT TROOPS HAD REEK USED during the campaign or at the polls In the forth coming Presidential election. % It la Intended to-nicht (hat the Democrats of each House shall meet In caucus early la the day, and consider the report to bo submitted from the Joint Caucus Committee, and that In the evening there shall bo a Joint caucus of tbo two Houses for the consideration of all questions now distracting the party. This programme, it will bo seen, Is A COUPLETS SURRENDER of all the points In controversy between tbo Democrats mid Itcoubllcans. The latter have never advocated the use of troops at the polls, end the President has shown that the passage ot a law now forbidding their use lu elections is a mere brulum fulracn, since by an act (passed last year, and signed by President Hayes, It is now unlawful to make such usu of soldiers. 'Hie Republicans declared that the Democrats never should forbid the United States Gov ernment by Its civil odlccrt armed with power to perform their duties to be pres ent at the polls at its own eleettous, ami the Democrats have agreed, or will agree, to yield that point. The Republicans denounced ns revolutionary the Democrats 1 attempt to coerce the President into the approval of a measure to which he was opposed by a threat to withhold the appropriations, and the Democrats have abandoned li. The surrender of the Democrats Is not only inevitable, It has already been made. - f TUB JOINT MBRTINO. To the Auociated Prut. Washington. D. C., May I.— The two’ Com mittees appointed respectively by the House uml Senate Democratic caucuses to report what course of action should bo adopted iu view of the Presidential vetoes, past and prospective, held a joint meeting this afternoon of two and a halt hours 1 duration. In consequence of the absence from Washlugton of Senator •Tones, of Florida, bia place on the Senate Committee was filled by Senator Hampton, and for similar reasons Heprcscntatlvcs Bragg and Goode were to-day appointed by the Chair man of the House caucus to fill the places oc cupied heretofore by Phelps and Tucker. The oilier members of the two Committees named In last night’s dispatch were all present this afternoon, with the exception of Senator Ker nan, who was to-day in Now York. Senator Thurman orosldod. After a very full Interchange of views, all present AORBBD UPON A PROPOSITION concerning the Army bill, to be reported to the separate caucuses of the two Houses to-morrow afternoon, which it is expected will ho adopted by both of them, amt thus render the joint cau cus on this subject unnecessary. It was decided that the terms of this proposition should not bo made public In advanw of its submission to the caucuses; but there arc sufficient grounds for staling that it will recommend the rc-pussaco of tiie Army Appropriation hill, with the sixth section changed so as to apply only to officers of the army and navy, and not to United States civil olilcers, thus obviating * the principal objec tion raised by the President against Its approval. The argument by which this recommendation wifi be supported Is, iu brief, that the President vetoed the bill because of the alleged abridg ment of the powers of civil officers; that iu reality this was NOT TUB INTENTION, and would not bo the effect of the bill as here tofore passed, and Uiut, the President having in the opinion of the Democratic party evaded the main issue, ho should now bo given an oppor tunity to pass upon a bill which shall present to him tiie solo question whethekor not the army, or any portion of It, should bo used to peace at the polls; ' ' ' For the purpose of attending the caucus tiie Democratic majority wilt procure au early ad journment of the Senate to-morrow. The House has already adjourned over until Satur day. IN THE HOUSE, TUB WARNER COINAGE HILL. Special Otepatch to The Tribune. Washington, D. C., May i.— The House ad- Journed over unlit Saturday fa order to give the Democracy time to recover from the shock of the veto, and to dvo the Thinking Committee appointed by the caucus mure time for delibera tion; but the Democrats had strength enough before adjournment to agree to take up the Warren Coinage bill. This is the measure that the Democrats expect trill give them the new issue that will attract public attention from their blunders and from the extra session. Whether it brings a now issue or not, if the Coinage bill is pressed to a vote, it will aid In bringing another element of discord Into the Democratic party. The test vote by which the resolution was passed to bring up the bill on Saturday was 115 yeas to 107 nays. Of the Republicans, Retford, Fort, and Kelley alone voted in the affirmative, while TUB FOLLOWING DBUOCIUTS voted with the mass of the Republicans in the negative, namely: Roltshovcr of Pennsylvania, Clark of Hew Jersey, Deuslcr of Wisconsin, Ladd of Ohio, McLano of Maryland, Morrison of Illinois, O’Brien of New York, O’Reilly of Now Turk, Poohlcr of Minnesota, and Talbot of Maryland. TSio managers of the bill intend to bavo a financial debate of some length, and to then force the passage of the bill and get it to the President, expecting, undoubtedly, that ho will veto it. Through this veto Uiey hope to present another Issue to Uie people which will overshadow the Democratic fiasco resulting from the veto of the Army bill. The Democrats carried out their caucus pro gramme of octlng on TUB VBTO MEBSAOB by voting without debate. Yet the usual per mission to print speeches ou leave was granted, and Uiu Conffreulonal JiecorU will bo full for weeks with speeches on tho veto message. The veto was sustaluul by a vote of 120 yeas to 110 nays, two-thirds not voting to pass tho hill over tho veto. Of tho Grcunbockers the following voted with tho Dotuocrats: Do La Matyr, of Indiana; Ladd, of Maine;-Stephenson, of Illi nois; and Wright, of Pennsylvania; and with tho Republicans to sustain the veto: Ford, of Missouri; Forsythe, of Illinois; Gillette and Weaver, of Iowa; Jones, of Texas; Murch, of Maine; and Locum, of 'Pennsylvania. Mr. Lowe; of Alabama, although lu bis scat, de clined to vote. There was A PEU9ONAL EXPLANATION u Uiq Ilouso by Kltchin, of North Carolina, which was worthy of notlco for one fact. Kllchluhad read an ullldavit la response to. charges that bis election had been Improperly secured, In which It was declared that Kuchin wua elected to Congress because of a division In the Republican party in tils district. It seems, therefore. If the Republicans wore nut divided the South would not. bo solid for tho Demo* cratlc party. NEW KOLB. Mr. Williams, of Wisconsin, after having worked five years, was to-day successful in hav ing a new rule passed which will shorten the time required for calling the roll la the House nearly one-half. It consists of a now rule, which was passed after a little debate, omitting Uic given name of members, except lu cases where there are two persons of the same nome. This la a very Important step lu Uie direction of reform In the legislative process. The Ilouso also adopted a rule allowing a Territorial Dele gate to be appointed on the Tdllltary Committee, und Martin Magluuts, of Montana, was appoint ed to that position. TUB VETO. To tht Watirn Atioelattd Prtu. Washington, D. C., May I.—Mr. tiparks call ed up the order made yesterday to reconsider the Array Appropriation bill. A vote was taken upon the question, no de bate being allowed, "Whether, upon reconsid eration, the House will pass the Array Appro priation bill, notwithstanding tho objection uf the President.” ' The House refused to psss the bill over the President's veto, the vote standing yeas, 120, liars, 110, not the necessary Iwo-thlrds In the nfllrmutlvc. It was strictly a partv vote. Only three of the Oreenbaekers voted for the bill, and nine against it. Following la the vote In detail: TEAS.

C., May I.— The movement to order another Louisiana Investigating com mittee, which shall bo an imitation of the Pot ter Committee, is the result to part of Demo cratic spite ut the veto message, and In part of the Democratic extremity. Senator Kellogg and other Republicans to-night take the ground that the Southern Senators have decided that it is essential for them in order to coutrol the Senate alter 1590 to have thirty-two Senatorial votes from the South solid. Then, with the four which they may have from the North, it would only he necessary to gain throe more to secure n majority of thirty-nine votes. The remaining three it is believed to bo (lie Democrats purpose to secure 1)T MAKING FICTITIOUS CONTESTS in rases of Senators to bcelccled hereafter, and to compel the properly elected Senators to stand aside when the time 'tomes for swearing them in, so their votes shall at least bo nullified until the' coses of contest can bo decided. The Democrats, moreover, It is understood, are actuated by the belief that a revival of the Louisiana story will annoy the Administration, and Unit the investi gation will be a sort of act to bo hold over the President in case he maintains so resolute on Independence as to threaten the accomplishment of Democratic purposes. This report from the Elections Committee to-night was A COMPLETE BUUPUI9B to the Republican members of that Committee, as well as to every Republican Senator. Senator Kel)ogg l ulono tiad expected It. It appears that there was a meeting of the Senate Elections Committee called mvstcrhmslv, if called at ail, yesterday, at which no Republican member whatever was present. At that meeting u reso lution to ask fur an investigation of the Spofford- Kellogg case was adopted. Tito Republican Senators are agreed that this resolution shall not be passed without very earnest debate, und, unless the matter, on account of party necessity and In view of the Democratic cuutlngcucy. should be made a party question, there are doubts whether the resolution can pass.

Some of Ker Former Extravagances The sharp crack of the revolver Is heard full often In Chicago now-a-days, ami homlclilc ftil lows homicide with startling rapidity* Yester day aftcnioon the city was furnished with another sensational tragedy, the victim In this case being a prominent business man and capitalist, and the person who committed tbo deed a woman. The case Is almost as sensa tioiial as any of Its Immediate predecessors, and the developments arc startling. Men, boys, and oven children having learned that If you oolot n loaded and cocked revolver at a man and pull the trigger the bullet will And a rest* Ing-placoinall probability In some part of his anatomy, ;hc women have begun to take a hand at target practice. The facts as to the shooting arc. In brief, as follows. Alout half-past 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon there were present In' the office of Juasscn & Anderson, Hoorn 34 Thnea Building. Col. Ed Juussoti, Theodore Weber, a detective belonging to Pinkerton's Agency, Mr. B. M. Shaducr, the attorney, and Mrs. Adelaide Hobcrt. V/cbcr was formerly .a partner with ,hl» brother, Rcorgo Weber, to the wholesale boot mid shoe business, and has lately acquired some notoriety in connection with tuoQreehe taum-Gcrmaii National Bank Investigation. Mr. ' ShuUncr was lust entering the room when Mrs. Hubert, who was standing Immediately opposite Weber, drew a'plstol from her pocket and tired point-blank at him. Weber was seated in a large casy-ehalr and the bullet entered his ab domen. The shooting was done so quietly that none of those present hud time to anticipate or prevent it. In an instant all was confusion. The detective grabbed the woman. Col. Jnesscu ran out for a doctor, uml Mr. Weber 101 l back in bin chair mortally wounded. The woman wan taken to the Armory Police-Station, and .Mr. Weber was conveyed to his homo, No. 374 .North LaSalle street, where he lies tu a dying condition, it being doubtful whether ho will live through to-day. A TmnoNE reporter hustled over to Col. Jucsscn't cilice shortly after the shooting. What with the nervousness incident to Uiu ex citing events through which the Colonel had recently passed, “ part of which he was and all of which he saw,” ami what with being badg ered umiymng to by certain newspaper fledge lings, the ColOncl was truly in an excited and, considering the boring to which he was sub jected, a pitiable state. Tub Tiuuunb man succeeded in detaching him from his surround ings, got him Into his own private oifleu in whluh the shouting was done, and requested him to Impart unto him, when he had sufllcitinlly recovered himself so to do, the circumstances directlv leading up to and attendant upon the attempted assassination. Col. duersen willing ly complied, alter some of Ida excitement hud died away, and cave the reporter the tallowing narrative of fuels: nousc. “ Yesterday,” lie began, “wo were taking tes timony in the case of Robert vs. Weber and .lucsficn. in the utlice of Mr. Grilfen, a Notary Public, Hoorn 117 Bryan Block. This Is tiie case she lias brought against Mr. Weber for the pur nose of enforcing tier blackmail operations. I noticed yesterday Unit every once in a while she slipped tier hands under her shawl, us if feel ing lor something in tier pocket. I feared then that sho would make an attack ou Weber. When the taking of the testimony was concluded for tiie day, and wo were about leaving the ofllcc,—it was near 4 o’clock,—sho ran after him into the hall like a fury, hut I didn’t see her draw a pistol. She simply laughed at him. and he slipped behind tlm elevator to shield blmtfclf from the supposed shot. Tiie taking of the testimony was to bo resumed this afternoon, mid sho was to bo tlm witness to lie examined in behalf of tbo prose cution. Still fearing that she might raaku an attack ou Air. Weber, I .desired him to remain at my oilleu until I hud tlnlshod her cross-examination, when wo would coiuo over hero with a Notary ami examine him. Blic.of course, would have a rlght|to be present. lie readily assented to this, and, us a further precaution to prev.eut all possible injury to Mr. Weber ou the part of this woman, 1 went with him, after dinner, to Pink erton's oflleo ami engaged a detective there to cumo to my olllce and sit by Mr. Weber, and keep constant watch of this woman, and to seize her the very moment sho attempted to pull a pistol or made a throat to use one, mid to prevent her from Inflicting any in jury. The detective came to my- oflleo mid waited until I came in from Mr. GrlQln’s at the conclusion of her cross-examination, which was about 4 o’clock.. She followed mo to my ullico directly afterwards. When she came In she was alone,—without her attorney, whom I have not seen since 1 saw him on Urn street coming from thu Bryan Block to my ofllcr. The very moment 1 stepped into my ofllcc here I noticed thu detective sitting on the lounge next to Sir, Weber, who sat in Umt largo arm-chair,” The situation will be readily understood by a reference to the diagram. “Tlm woman,” continued Col. Jucsson, ” walked toward Mr. Weber, and out of a news paper which she curried in her baud drew a largo-sized photograph, and asked him If he could swear ou Umt picture that that was not his buy. * lie made some reply,—J couldn’t clearly understand Just what it was,—but my impression Is that be said ho didn’t wont any private conversation with her. 1 stepped up toward thu woman uuu remarked that It was best not to huvu mtv private conversation huru; that thu matter could nut bo settled by any pri vate talk, and asked her to take a scat. Just then she stepped up close to Mr. Weber, whiiu he was still sitting In the aru-chuir. J followed her, and took my stand behind her and so close to her that I almost touched her. Shu remarked to Mr. Weber, ‘lt seemed to mu yesterday, when I rau after you In the ball, that you were afraid of mo. Now, I want you to understand 1 don’t mean to’iujuro yon. 1 hare no intention to harm you in any way. If 1 wanted to do so I have had a, dozen chances to do so, and 1 have never done it’ Thu FATAL. Done. Z&ocallod to Mind. A SUCCESSFUL STIOT. COL. JUESSKN.
