Oh! How Well do B
St was in the bSeak
When my pants so thin had grown and my
coat bo well was worn. - Suddenly my
thoughts grew stronger; hesitating then no
longer, straight 1 ruahed mj to the pave*
ment which so oft I’d trod before. " S'death,”
said I, “ why hove I gone so long In clothes
that freeze me to the very core?" This 1
thought, and something more.
First, I thought how slim my purse was,
and how 0(1 ’twas so before, and my wish
war to get value, only this and nothing
Ihe M<
drokc I then for the Mammoth Factory
where clothes ore made so satisfactory.
Reached 1 there all In a shiver, here I opened
wide the door; this 1 did and dilute more.
" SJlrs,” said I, “ prfiy can you tell me will
a man here dare to sell me, sell me clothes
not worn before?" This 1 said, and yet
still more.
“ My purse it is so lean and slender I
hardly dare it to you tender, but I beg you
clothe me warmly, as you oft have,done
Then we took this young man kindly,
rigged him out in clothes so finely that his
friends knew him no more. Paid he us and
had to spare; think you not that this was
fair ? Mole sex, fail not then to go to

Washington, I). C., Oct. I'.—A Domncmtlc
Senator, whoso name commands universal re
spect. says tonight that tbo Democrats will not
be.ablo to elect a Secretary of tbo Senate before
the three Hepnbllcan Senators arc sworn in,
oven If mo majority of tbo Democratic party
should determine upon Unit policy. This state
ment. of umtrso, can only moan that tbore arc u
lew Democrats who would not permit partisan
ship, even in tho shape of a caucus decree, to
torco thorn to such an unjust act. Then* are
said to bu three Democratic Senators who have
thus Indicated their Intention under no circum
stances to commit that lust diyporato act u(
paiUzmishlp, mid It lathe knowledge of this
fact which In n great measure has caused tbo
extremely bitter wrangling among tbo Demo
cratic spoilsmen. Tbs Indlcathms, therefore,
an* that Senators Miller,-t.upham, and Aldrich
will bo •'
before that body proceeds to tho ulccuon of a
Secretary. There arc Home Intimations, for
tbut matter, that tho Senate will not proceed to
tbo election of n Secretary at all. Some of tho
Democrats propose that they do not make a
nomination for Secretary ami do net consider
tbo question unless thu Ilepublleans shall bring
it up, but leave tho otlico vacant until Decem
ber. Tho Kepubllciuis have nut us yet taken
their position upon this subject, and may not
settle It at tho adjourned caucus tomorrow
morning, for there undoubtedly will bu sumo
speeches made on tbo question of tlio capture of
tho Vicu-Prcsideucy by tbu Dumuerats, and it is
not probable tbut anything will bo dono tomor
row (if even Dull is aecumpllshod) beyond tho
election of Mr. Ilayard, and possllity tho swear
ing in of the three Itepnblluans. Tho Democrats
are nut to bu permitted, however, to elect u pre
siding ollleer aud
without at leant n formal protest on tho part of
the Ucpnbllcans. Mr. Edmunds, It Is under*
stood, on behalf of (ho llepnblieans. will movo
lHut all tho Senators be sworn In before tho Sen*
ato proceed to tho election of n President pto
tempore, mid that Senator Anthony, as tho old
est Senator In continuous service, bo designated
to administer the oaths, after tbo custom which
sometimes prevails In the Mouse of Uoprcsema*
lives and In uihor legislative bodies. Mr. Ed
munds wilt roly upon tho precedent In tbo ease
of Cass, and It Is understood will muku nn nrgu*
merit in support of his position, In which ho will
warn tho Democrats that under tho clrcum-
Blancos It would be wise for them to bu conserv
ative. it Is even possible that after the Demo
crats shall have elected llaynrd tho llupnbllcuns
may move to elect David Davis in bis place.
connected with tbo contest for tbo Presidency
of (bu Senuto is that the candidates of both par
ties for presiding otllcer aro from tbo smallest
Htates hi Ibo Union—Dclawaro and llbudo
island. It Is now learned that thorn was more
opposition to Bayard's nomination than was at
Una supposed, and that them worn ten votes
against him on tbo lirsi informal ballot. Tuu
Indications tonight am that tbo Democrats am
likely to dnellnu to enter into tho election of
Krorctary, and «> recommend that tho Chief
Clerk bu clothed with the powers of Secretary
until December. Tbo llepublleaiis, It Is under-
Blood, will votu against going Into tbo election
of Fcerutiiry, and, If tho Democrats should In
sist upon It, will decline lo pmsont n candidate.

dl»eu»sed liytlio most eminent lawyers who have

during llio Impeitclinmnl or Andrew Johnson,
hi dm Initcr ease it was held liv Mr. Evans that
Johnson ruiitd not bo Impeached as President
I»ee«u<e liar did not hold the oltlooot president,
but. merely acted as President. Tho Semite,
however, nt that time did tint aiistain tho view
of Evans. Edmund* has said today that somo
of thonhlesl i-oii«tiiiitloiiul lawyers In thoconn
iry agreed wl*h Evans In hi* views. Tho fact
that such a suggestion ns Ihl* has boon timdo In
tho Ifepuldfcan caucus. and that Senator f.'d*
imiuds wai believed to «.lmro
has caused a great deal of excitement among
tho democratic Senator*. Thoy do not hellevu
that such a project at thin would havo Arthur's
Hiinmloii. At tbn tamo timo, they h.ivo boon
raueusiug infonmilly iilmo*t ail day. There*
pern which dJlfeient Democratm Senator* havo
taken into the conference of conversa
tions they havo had with their liepnU
llcnn associates have strengthened tho belief
that Senator Edmund* and cdhers design to
have recourse to some eonsdtudona I technicality
by whioh tilthnaloly to secure tho election or a
President pm temporu. or at least to prevent
the democrats from electing their parly. Thin*
eomded with the fact that Senator t.‘oakling nut
been closeted, as was stated, with (ion. Arthur
for Mio best part of" two days, gives rise to wry
grave anxiety among the llenmerals. Ex-Sen*
utor ConUllug's position, ns suggested by his
remarks on

dmr has dm right lu appear in the senate to*
morrow In his usual place, call tho Senate to or*
der. and swear In the three Senator*, and then
vacate tbo ollice. Thu question that has been
most moeteti today has been regard tho pol*
ley of tbu dumocratlu .Senators in ease lliov
should ilnd tu*niorruw upon assembling that
thu suggestion niudo in tho Ueputdlcmi
caucus whs realized, that Gon. Arthur was In

be Impossible to secure mi adjournment alter
having llrst recognized Gena Arthur's right to
call Umbellate to order, uud If this right worn
rceogniwil so far. they could not refuse to rec
ognize tho further right to administer tho oath
to tho three Senators. It was thought that Chief-
Clerk pliuler would
ami (but he would lie the only otic ruu.iabi7.ed by
Democratic Senator#. ll Is eert..ln tonight that

cussed, It was not discussed with any Intention
of exercising tbo right. but simply to obtain tbo
views of Senator* as to whether tho right exist

Washington*. D. u., Oft. A week ago tho
meeting of tho Semite was looked forward tons
one to bo In tnurked contrast with tbo extra
session culled by President (Jarllold. The lire*
diction was Umi both parties were anxious to
avoid mi exhibition of i.eniu»ny. mid that eon*
servatlvo members would so guide tho counsels
that tho organization of tho body and tho uivis
lons of committees would uu by unanimous cun*
bent. Tho death of a President by ussusinuUmi,
tho profound grief of a people without regard
to party or section, and tho laet that the .Senate
was called together Ip (supply u want In tho
Presidential succession* were tnought to tie mil*
detent reasons to cumpel an exceptional
willingness to sink party considerations at
least until tno Semite was organized. Tho
conferences nt Cleveland pointed to
Much a result, and the talk of
Senators mi both sides previous to tbo caucuses
of yesterday enforced tho same view. Thu air
ofthoeomnilUeo-rmmH appears to have pat
all such Ideas to (light, and the prospect of a
deadlock has ceased to lm a terror to Senators
of either parly. Theytnvo farther from an

misfortunes of tho summer have fulled to
weaken party zeal in tho leaders, however much
thev have operated on the people.
Tho Democratic candidates fur.-toemtaryuf tho
Senate are very urgent that ttiuir party shall
elect tho Secretary before tho admission ol trow
Senators; otherwise that course would have few
advocates la tho Democratic caucus. The candi
